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.

Watch the promo below:

In the teaser, a shot is fired, but who fired it?  And will this be the official end of Shiloh’s reign of terror? Will there be a murder mystery?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below!

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
