GENERAL HOSPITAL: How Does Griffin Know Nathan … Is The Common Thread Claudette?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

The backstory of Claudette, the ex-wife of Nathan West (Ryan Paevey), has started to come to light, especially after last Friday’s cliffhanger on General Hospital.

After Nathan and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have a major strain in their relationship over Nathan not being forthcoming about having an ex-wife, the two seem headed for trouble.  Then when Nina (Michelle Stafford) moves into their place, and Maxie heads out, Nathan tells his sister his truth about Claudette West.   He married her to get her a green card to stay in the country.  Once together, apparently she cheated on him.  Nina says he needs to make things right with Maxie, and of course, she would be upset about his withholding this information from her.

When Nathan turns the conversation to Nina’s failing relationship with Franco (Roger Howarth), she grabs Maxie’s tablet that she left behind and tells Nathan that Maxie has been doing some research …  looking up Claudette West.   Meanwhile, Maxie runs into Griffin (Matt Cohen) at the MetroCourt, and after exchanging some barbs (is this true love in the making?), the two sit down for a chat where Griffin reveals he is Duke Lavery’s son, and they just brought in to custody Carlos Rivera, the man that shot him.  Maxie is so moved about Griffin’s relationship with Duke, because of her family’s relationship with the late mobster.   She then says she understands how Griffin feels having had her beloved sister, Georgie murdered and wanting justice.

When Griffin leaves the table for a moment in rushes Nathan!  He tells Maxie every word Nina told him to say to her to woo her back.  Nathan then proceeds to get down on one knee and proposes marriage to her!  Maxie looks thrown by it, but not in the best of ways.   When Griffin walks back in the room he sees Nathan for the first time, and it’s made very clear that he knows exacly who Nathan is.

Watch the scene below from Friday’s GH! Then weigh in:  What is the relationship between Griffin and Nathan?  Were they both in love with Claudette … or  is it something completely different involving the law?  As of now would you like to see Maxie with Griffin … or Maxie with Nathan?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I haven’t been a fan of Nathan since he first came to the show. I don’t see the reason for his character, and would much rather the show brings back Lucky as Dante’s partner. As for this storyline… who cares? I understand, it gives Maxie and Nathan something to do and shows that not every couple who seems perfect and happy is always like that. But we don’t know Claudette and likely never will. And as for Griffin, I really like him. And I realize the show is trying to connect him to the canvas in more ways, but Nathan… Read more »

CeeCee

Good one, Jimmy. Or Claudette is married to Berlin.
Is that why Griffin looked so startled when he was introduced to Nathan? Is Claudette the link? Is it possible for Duke to have also fathered Nathan. But, Dr. O said Nathan’s father was worse than Victor Cassadine. Perhaps, Ray Berlin is Nathan’s father, who is now married to Claudette.
I always maintained that Griffin and Nathan looked so alike, they could pass as brothers. Or, Duke isn’t Griffin’s father, at all, but Ray is father to both…. Big mystery on the rise, Jimmy. LOL.

You jest, but I think it is possible– Griffith has very feminine features, I would definitely buy him playing a transgender. Also there seem more to the story between Nathan and Claudette, perhaps she cheated on him with another woman because she wanted to be a he- or she wanted to be a he and was still attracted to men and Nathan was too weirded out to be in what would be a homosexual relationship once Claudette transition, so he made up that story of her cheating on him rather than admit his wife wanted to be a man.

Once again, I am in the minority. Who is Claudette? Who is cracking corn? Well, that would be Jimmy and I don’t care. I would imagine that in a month or so we will be introduced to a new character named Claudette thereby adding to the already bloated cast. We went through getting to know a character through hearing accounts of said character already with Nina. Silas sobbed, honked through his nose and told lyrical tales of the lovely Nina months before Stafford the scene chewer shored up to the banks of Port Charles. Now, we have to listen to… Read more »

Sarah Brown has already played two characters on GH and her portrayal of Claudia was an abysmal failure which is why she was killed off.
I don’t see how she could come in as a third character as that is stretching the suspension of disbelief too far.

I have to admit that revelation super annoyed me. It’s like they are taking great pains to attach Griffin to EVERY character on the canvas. Look, the guy is a good actor and is good looking to boot. I already like him. No need to insert him into three or four story lines simultaneously. I’m also tired of characters being introduced off camera who are supposed to have tremendous impact on a story. It feels as if they have run into a dead end with Nathan, which is why they have made up this Claudette business. There’s also something abut… Read more »

Big no to a griffin Maxie pair up, he needs to get put together with Liz, plus currently in my opinion Nathan and griffin are the two best looking guys on the show , why is Maxie getting so lucky? Not fair, but also the Nathan and griffin connection if you ask me is dr O herself, didn’t she have duke ” imprisioned” all those years in the hospital before he was finally found? There’s gotta be something there?

Shari
Guest
Shari

I totally agree. Maxie already has Nathan and on again off again Spinelli. Liz needs a new man and it would be nice to see her taken out of the Nik circle if they are just going to remain good friends. I think Griffin probably was Claudette’s other man and I guess she’ll also be arriving soon.
I like Nathan and Maxie. Yes they need a story to keep them interesting and that’s fine but it is also nice to see her with someone who is good to her.

Soaphound

Soaphound

SHARI, I agree with all you’ve said except for the Elizabeth pairing. Griffin is too good for her, at least so far. How about, bear with me here, a May-November romance for Anna? Aside from the usual soap gross factor, which we’ll ignore, Griffin could be a way to rekindle her flame for Duke and he clearly needs someone more mature than his peer-group. Too close for comfort?

Shari
Guest
Shari

I actually considered that a few weeks ago! I would love to see an Anna/Griffin romance. Lol I am actually 12 years older than my husband and we have been together 16 years and have 3 children and he is my absolute best friend so it does work.
You are right about Liz. She really isn’t good enough for him.

Shay
Guest

@Shari…I recently opined to CeeCee that same thought….there is an incredible chemistry between Anna and Griffin….a totally romantic vibe. I’d love to see them become involved, particularly due to the Divine Devane’s timeless nature. Other than with Robert or Noah, she seems far too youthful for men of her age range…..(Well, except for Paul, and he’s too sleazy….and speaking of Hornsby, how about his professed attraction to Anna on Tuesday? That was too funny.) The soulful Griffin has a depth and maturity to him that would make him unsuitable for the likes of Maxie or those other flighty she-meeees of… Read more »

Shari
Guest
Shari

I agree about Anna. It seems that whole her male co-stars from the past like Duke and Robert, suited her when they were all younger and I liked them now for nostalgic reasons, they now seem too old for her and she seems too young and sexy and cool for them. Finola did have great chemistry and repertoire with Jason T but they weren’t going to go there with Anna and Patrick, Griffin never knew Duke and I think it would be creepy to some but not to me. I also liked Olivia and Johnny when they were a couple.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Shari….You’re right…Olivia and Johnny were a terrific couple! They had superb chemistry, so the age thing never seemed to be an issue with them. The only time I’ve ever had a problem with that concept is in reference to Alexis and Julian, for the simple reason that so much was made of him being slightly older than her, so what did the brilliant showrunners do? They cast a guy who is already almost ten years younger than his leading lady and could pass for another decade less than that. So, in essence you had a 20+ year perceived gap between… Read more »

Lanie

I have a feeling that Griffin is Claudette. They are experimenting with many different current social issues. I could see them exploring this path. It’s one that, as far as I know, has never been explored. At least on GH.

Anne

Anne

Thanks for the laughs.

Hey, it could be a storyline.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Hmmmm…interesting. But, even after many experimentations, we should, at least, see some vestige of feminine quality. Griffin is all man. He seems to have a perpetual 5 o’clock shadow. And those shoulders!
I think his abdominal scar may have something to do with Nathan? Perhaps a fencing accident, where Griffin was wearing headgear hiding his face? Nathan’s epee’ nicked him?

Shay

Unless Griff and Nathan had a close encounter of another kind, CeeCee!!! Was that clever epee’ comment an intentional double entendre or just a happy coincidence?

Cracking me up, Shay…LOL.
I do admit that my mind is, more than not, in the gutter, but this was an innocent comment. Honest!!!!!

I believe you, CeeCee….I was jesting, but it was a very fine double entendre, intentional or otherwise. Honestly, though, I just want Griffin to be the good guy, great doctor and general sweetheart he appears to be….no huge secrets or dark side to his character. I know it’s a hoot to speculate about certain aspects of his mysterious persona, however, for me, just being Duke’s long lost son is enough, and I hope it’s true, and that’s that. Then, maybe he can have that romance with Anna, and we can move on. As for “Claudette,” I’m already at the place… Read more »

My boyfriend said the same thing, Lanie. It would be an intriguing story in the right hands but I don’t think the current GH writers are the ones to tackle such a topic and handle it with the sensitivity it requires. THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL did a great job with the Maya story but I can’t forget the Zoe/Zarf story on AMC — that one was pretty much a mess (which surprised me since AMC had always been such a trailblazer with socially relevant storylines).

Nathan is a hunk BUT he is a stick in the mud. Maxie needs someone who is into fashion and clubbing! Griff isnt it either. He is a reserved professional. He would be better off with Liz.

My opinion is that Griffin is a transgender from woman to man. Nathan won’t recognize how Claudette looks like now as a Man. And let’s not forget the scene with Griffin and Maxie in the Hospital locker room with him in just a towel. Griffin looked down and was feeling his scar at his waist, which Maxie notice. The scar probably came from the Sex Change surgery.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Not a bad theory IF Anna were not involved and Duke being his dad.

Harry….you are cracking me up. Too funny, you are, sir. Maybe a medical team transplanted an ovary there? Still too high on the abdomen????? Hilarious. Oh, my Lordy Lord!!!!
That scar could be from a surgical procedure; but not the genitalia, LOL. Could be, it means nothing. I think , the area is tender, at times, and he instinctually touches it. Is it a gimmick by TPTB?
I still think Nathan is the link to that scar. Too much tension when the two came face to face. Nathan’s is (jealousy) completely different from Griffin’s ( fulminating and pensive).

Shay
Guest
Shay

You did just fine, Harry….in your own imitable fashion! As much fun as it may be to speculate with this rather now over-used soap theory, I think the notion will conclude just as fruitlessly as when so many of us thought that Fluke was going to end up being Patricia.

I think Griffin will be revealed to be the former boyfriend of Rachel Berlin (daughter of Raymond Berlin, master of the off-camera Ponzi scheme), half brother of French-Canadian Claudette (the off-camera green card cravin’ ex of Nathan), and a former doctor at Shriner’s Hospital (which provides medical treatment to sick children regardless of the family’s ability to pay) and then this mess will be wrapped up so we can get back to ignoring the fact that Sonny murdered AJ.

The problem with Nathan, and I do feel bad for the actor, is that they try to write him into something that he really is not capable of playing. He’s a gorgeous man, but his acting is somewhat limited. He can’t even pull off a French accent very well:)I think the character is worse than the actor. He seems to be trying. We’ll see if the new storyline works for him and if he can make us care a bit more about him?

Hey there, Timmbo! Great minds think alike! I even checked for “Double C” on the non-GH threads, to no avail. Me thinks she may be opening the house on the Vineyard….it’s about the right time for that, and she said before that the internet is spotty there, so besides the iPad issue, that could also be why we haven’t heard from her. At any rate, sending good thoughts her way….paging CeeCee!!!!! You are missed!

Anyway, Ryan’s accent and pronunciation of the French language sounds more Parisian to me than Canadien, eh?

Shay

Shay

Oh yes, CeeCeeGirl….Perhaps he obtained his accent from “Lycee Francais de New York” …tres apropos for Nathan! Seriously, it seems to me that the showrunners are throwing all sorts of new character ideas (The Berlins and Claudette) at the wall to see who sticks with the existing ones, and as usual, it’s not working…..only causing more confusion.

@CeeCee….Per your contrast and compare comments regarding Nathan and Griffin….I concur with them. Dr. Munro has a whole lot more going on than Detective West…especially upstairs!!!!! LOL.

I love them as a couple and I don’t care if Nathan stands on set and pounds his chest and says, “I play football” all day long, I will NEVER tire of him. That is perfection. Just perfection.

I’ve told you this before, Timmm, but I don’t consider Nathan’s particular variety of eye candy to be all that tempting….I’ve never understood all the fuss about him! Now Griffin is quite another thing! As far as I’m concerned, he gives Detective West a real run for his money in the looks department, plus, he actually has an intellect and personality to match his beautiful façade, not to mention a smoldering sort of charisma and a romantic soul!!!! In other words, he’s the entire package!

CeeCee
Guest

@Shay.
I think they are both hunky hunks, ma cherie. However, Griffin has more of that brooding-Hamlet aura about him…….the mystery/enigma makes him so much more appealing than Nathan.
By contrast, Nathan has no magnetism except for his good looks.
As far as Claudette being a cousine francaice du Canada? C’est possible.
I still contend that Nathan and Griffin are connected, somehow. Whether this story includes Claudette, I cannot be sure. We shall see.

OK…you know what??? This so-called business of Claudette the ex-wife and the green card is boring me to tears. Also, couple-wise, Nathan and Maxie no longer interest or intrigue me. Most of all, and at this point, I’d rather watch Nathan go G-A-Y…or evan B-I. Hey…just saying……….

Your right Jay, if Nathan is going to stay on the show he should “Turn” gay. I would make Claudette a guy who could be Griff and go that direction. Ryan Peavy is very handsome but his acting is not up to par with what material they give him. He is paired with Maxie. That actress burns holes in his scenes she is so good and that makes him look worse! Personally Jay, I would kill Nathan off either in May or August due to a mob issue. THAT would give Nina something to do, mourning her brother and others… Read more »

Claudette and Rachael/Ray Berlin “back stories” just aren’t doing it for me. They are characters with history’s that writers just seemed to pull from the sky to bring into Port Charles that have no traction or interest. Goes back to the need for good story telling again.

Maxie and Griffin were more entertaining together in one episode than Maxie and Nathan have been for two years!!! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed these scenes and really liked the writing content for each character and felt a strong chemistry for the entire conversation. Nathan is still one of the most boring stoic characters ever. Griffin has this soulful mysterious vibe about him that makes him fresh and interesting. Maxie has been thriving again as a character once they put her back in her element at Crimson and it’s time to rid her of the one note… Read more »

Surely, Anna would remember, but they’re not writing her the way they should. Why even bother mentioning Griffin’s mother if the writers are going to be incapable of revisiting a past that many of us watched on GH? Also, Camellia is from Canada as is the mysterious Claudette, so it makes me wonder if Griffin met Claudette in Canada or if the supposedly red-head Claudette is even… Read more »

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.
