GENERAL HOSPITAL: “He’s The Most Hated Man In Port Charles”

Courtesy/ABC

Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) has gone off the rails! And this week on General Hospital, the cult leader who also made Franco’s (Roger Howarth) brain disappear is on the loose, and taking hostages along the way such as baby Wiley; the little boy he thinks is his son! But we all know that’s not the truth, either!

In ABC and GH’s latest promo for the series, everyone is worried, and wants to stop the guy from doing any more harm to the good people of Port Charles and they state that clearly Shiloh is the most hated man in the town of Port Charles.

On Monday’s episode, Shiloh already left Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) by the the side of the road and took Wiley.  He has blackmailed Peter (Wes Ramsey) for “moolah” …. or he will spill the beans on Peter’s involvement with Helena Cassadine and the original kidnapping of Drew.  He is already on sexual assault charges from women for their initiation into the “Dawn of Days” trust.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) is in the wrong place at the wrong time as he is trying to get out of town and hanging out at the ‘Haunted Star’, when, yup!, Shiloh and Wiley show up.  As Dev tries to call Jason (Steve Burton), he instead gets a hold of Sam (Kelly Monaco), and before he can relay all of his warnings to her, he is knocked out.   Next, Sam shows up at the ‘Haunted Star’ and finds Shiloh with Wiley standing over Dev with a gun.

Great actor and would love to see him portray a better character in the future on GH. This Shiloh character was was terrible though. I’m glad that cult thing is wrapping up. It was a stupid storyline.

Please let this be Ramsey’s exit. He’s like an anchor around the necks of Port Charles’ residents. He can’t act, is creepy, and is a wimp!

What’s his face got to do with anything? Billy Miller’s face was in the opening credits then when he was off the show, his face was gone. Same with Garren Stitt and Michelle Stafford The faces change every day.

I wasn’t a fan of the cult storyline. I thought it was cheaply done. Coby, though, is a good actor. He carried out the storyline well; although, the writing was atrocious. Wes Ramsey, he just needs to go. Laura Wright needs to quit her job as his beard. She needs a new focus, other than propping up her untalented boyfriend.

I LOVE Shiloh!!
He is the best thing that has happened to GH in a long time,
He keeps me awake
He is an awesome character;
not a Ray Gardner and not close the other great bad guys Billy Clyde, but Shiloh is all we had since GH became a bad version of The Waltons.

Fact; it’s always been the dark evil bad guys that put the UMMMMPH in a soap, without them a soap is dead in many ways..

Coby is a great actor, he was given a 3 year contract but the Idiots had to kill him off and rid of a great talent.
I dunno- GH wants us to be bored to death by taking every single exciting character out.
Soaps need BAD GUYS!!
GH has become much like a weird monastery thing, all goodie goodies, that’s it all wimpy weenies.

Aww, su, no you don’t! The Walton’s you say? I must say I don’t think of John Boy when I watch GH–EVER! 🙂

Yes Su, he does make a good bad guy.but enough is enough, and you know there is another one waiting in the wings to give us another bad guy, so don’t give up hope.

Hey, Suoo, you constantly remind us of how young you are and how all the classic soaps are before your time. How do you know about Bily Clyde, Ray Gardner and The Waltons? BINGO! No, I do not mean you need to run back to your Bingo game in senior rec room but I do mean to say BINGO! You are much older than you pretend to be. Which is okay, but I don’t understand the pretense.

Hi Harry 🙂
you must have read me commenting on my granny soap guru neighbor.
My neighbor is alone and hasn’t missed her soaps in half a decade,
I invite her over for soap nights, she tells of the old days.
many times she had told of Gardner and Clyde.. I have 65” tv I go to youtube and search and play everything there on the two villains and many more for her.
She loves it!! and I’m happy to take her back to the good ‘ol days via youtube.
the Gardner guy raped a nurse! we don’t have that nowadays.

And, after watching those two- Gardner and Clyde, they were magnificent bad guys, outstanding!
the ones we have now are creampuffs in comparison.

00hh and she has tapes of them,and many others, the times they were on that soap.

I don’t have a VCR (an antique) but hers still works! unbelievable, it may be a newer one dunno..
And she has excitingly had me over to watch.

I’ve never asked her age but she must be mid 70’s?
She’s all alone so I don’t mind soping with her its fun, actually.

Coby is doing such a fantastic job of playing one of the ceepiest characters I’ve seen as of late, save for Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) over on B&B.

But I do agree, this story can’t wrap up soon enough.

Michele…”Yes” Shiloh and Thomas….two of the creepiest.

Oh you are so right about Thomas Forrester. When M.A was on Y&R as Summer’s husband, I never dreamed he could play a part like this one. It got so bad for me, especially with the little boy, etc., I had to stop watching for a while. It was too upsetting. That is another SL I can’t wait to wrap up. I hoped it was over when Thomas went over the cliff, but I was wrong and he’s still causing trouble.

I’ve been waiting for a whodunit involving Shiloh. Unfortunately, the trailer seems to show a female pair of hands holding the gun and thus, eliminating all the males. I really hope they don’t cop out and make it willow’s mom, out of jail on stroll, who pulled the trigger. Having a minor character pull the trigger would lessen the impact. I would love to see Shiloh get what’s coming to him, but figure there’s much, much more to play out in this saga.

Welp, it was…SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t seen it…surprise, surprise! It was girl wonder and a flare gun. That explains the gun’s funny color. But I don’t believe for a moment Shiloh’s dead. November sweeps are coming.

I really didn’t care for the whole Dawn of Day cult story, and how long they’ve dragged it out. And I mean, the fact that he and so many characters constantly break out of prison so easily in Port Charles is one of the most ridiculous and overused plot devices on this show going back many years.

But I will give a lot of credit to Coby Ryan McLaughlin for his performance, he definitely succeeded in making Shiloh a character that I loved to hate. An absolutely smarmy, evil lowlife bastard with no redeeming qualities, and we know that those characters don’t usually have a long shelf life in soaps. Unless you’re an all-time iconic villain like Cesar Faison or Helena Cassadine, and even they eventually finally met their demise (Or have they, lol). I love a good villain, always have.

My thoughts about the storyline aside, Coby did a great job in the role. Not sure what the requirements are for the category, or if he’d be eligible in terms of how many episodes he’s been on, but I could see him potentially making GH 3 for 3 in the Guest Actor category at the Emmys next year, following in the footsteps of Vernee Watson and Patricia Bethune.

I have mixed feelings about this storyline. I have never liked it. I do think Coby has done a great job in playing Shiloh. However there was an author of a book in my bookstore over the weekend with his new book about having been captured and part of a cult at a young age. Somehow he escaped and has been on the cult’s hit list since then. I told him about GH’s Shiloh story, but hadn’t realized how real these cults were. So while I didn’t like this story, I guess it has alerted us to them and all of their horrible things they can do…and worse things listening to the author. Must admit I got a really eerie feeling talking with him, and even when he shook my hand. And coincidentally while I’m writing this comment the coyotes are howling in the conservation area adjacent to my home right now which adds to the eerie. Shiver! But I do wonder if the effects will truly ever leave the author even though he is free.

Get rid of Shiloh he is getting boring and so are the writers they need to get new ones this is ridiculous that Michael don’t know that that Wiley is his son Brad needs to go to prison and stay there

Christy

this storyline was based on a real cult/pyramid scheme court case going on. NXIVM – look it up. the sacrifices, the sex, the branding… its all there. maybe gh cant write an ending until real case is wrapped up.

Melissa, Darling
Melissa, Darling

Christy…thank you. This is the first recollection I have of the real-life NXIVM being mentioned in this forum. It’s why I started watching GH again, having gotten frustrated with Y & R, because an article about the horrifying NXIVM events referenced the parallel storyline on GH. Coby Ryan McLaughlin was dreamy on his short Y & R stint, and his nuanced performance as Shiloh conveyed (to me, at least) how people could fall under his spell. Kudos to this talented, sexy actor. “Boring”? Not in my book. Equal parts smarmy and charming. Though I will concede that the writers –who obviously did their research–did seem to wrap things up rather hastily. Maybe because so much audience reaction (like these I’m reading on MFTV) have been so negative. Or for the reasons you mentioned, Christy. Personally, I would have liked to have seen more of Shiloh’s “charming” side rather than rush to making him a standard soap villain. But the offshoot is, I’ve grown to love GH again as a result…on my daily DVR replacing Y & R. Lots working in Port Charles!

I saw him at the GH fan club event last July. Steve Burton held the mic and I told them, you know Shiloh had been on the show long enough everyone wanted to throttle him (Steve said, like me!) and then I saw you (coby) on Ncis and his character there got nabbed off the sidewalk and tossed in a van, and i was like YES!! We all laughed. Coby laughed and said he wasn’t sure if anyone saw that.. and hey, I think I was a good guy on that show… I said I didnt care. I was in need of Shiloh getting payback, so I enjoyed it, even if it was a different show.

A while later we walked thru the doorway at the same time, I looked up to see who I was walking with and said to him, Oh its you again, grrrr! and faked a fist at him. we both laughed.

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Coinrthos) had been teasing on social media that he was about to debut on Sunday.  Well, it’s here! Benard has launched his brand new website, MB’s State of Mind (www.mbstateofmind.com).

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
