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!

We can’t say goodbye to Shiloh just yet…his face is in the opening credits.

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.

I was thinking it would be Nelle.

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.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.
