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



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 isn’t a core character. I think Claudette was either Griffin’s ex, or his sister.

      I so agree with you about Nathan. Maxie needs a much more interesting character as a co star like the hot new Dr.

      Or Griffin is really Claudette-lol

        Oh, Jimmy…I care not how robotic of a cop Nathan is. Look at him, so so, ….’how do you say’? Ah, oui….MAGNIFIQUE!!!! Perfect specimen. LOL.

      • Kathy

        April 18, 2016 at 5:46 pm

        I thought of that too…they would go the transgender route …or maybe Duke was also Nathan’s father

        April 22, 2016 at 3:45 pm

        That’s exactly what I was thinking…lol.

      I think that Nathan and Maxie should be together

    Claudette is Griffen’s half sister…who is currently in a mental hospital after Nathan dumped her and had her locked up-so not so Mr. Nice guy…lol

    • CeeCee

      April 18, 2016 at 11:27 am

      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.

      • Harry

        April 18, 2016 at 12:29 pm

        So therefore, Claudette is the new Nina.

      • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

        April 18, 2016 at 12:59 pm

        I noticed the resemblance too-i just wonder why none of the characters like Maxie havent noticed???

      • Kiki

        April 22, 2016 at 3:50 pm

        I am so glad to finally see someone else who thinks Nathan and Griffin look alike. Ever since Griffin has shown up, I have been wowing about how they looked more alike than most real life siblings.

      • Lisa

        April 23, 2016 at 6:03 pm

        I agree on this Jimmy

    • CeeCee

      April 18, 2016 at 3:16 pm

      Lol, Jimmy. Of course, Maxie should have noticed the resemblace. But, unless TPTB remove the blinders from these characters, they ” see noteeing….heah noteeing”…..Sgt. Schultz, HOGAN’S HEROES.

    Griff is probably the guy Claudette cheated on Nathan. I would love it if Claudette was Claudia’s TWIN! That way we get back Sarah Brown AND the Zacharo’s!

    • tskyent

      April 18, 2016 at 9:38 am

      That would be Awesome to have Sarah Brown back!

      • Timmm

        April 18, 2016 at 10:11 am

        Can you imagine the hell she would bring down on Sonny and Michael. Oh and Carly and her would go toe to toe!

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      April 18, 2016 at 10:25 am

      Nope-Griffen IS CLAUDETTE_SHOCKER!!!-lol

      • Timmm

        April 18, 2016 at 12:36 pm

        Wouldnt that be something but we know Nathan is not gay UNLESS he has Kristinaitis and if thats the case, DONT talk to Alexis about it!

      • Mary SF

        April 18, 2016 at 6:38 pm

        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. I think it will make a interesting story, but GH hasn’t done an interesting story in a while, so many it will be too much to hope for

    • CeeCee

      April 18, 2016 at 1:21 pm

      I like that idea, as well, Timmmy.
      Or, Ray Berlin was Duke wearing one of Faison’s masks. He lived a double life? Was he really imprisoned for twenty years? The plot thickens, yeah!!

      • Timmm

        April 25, 2016 at 4:36 am

      • dawn

        April 19, 2016 at 2:52 am

        that would be perfect. I hadn’t even thought of that route. and being claudia’s twin would tie in so many characters. very tantalizing thought

      • Harry

        April 19, 2016 at 8:52 am

        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 Robocop go on and on about about a character we have yet to meet while poor Maxie is rendered into dullsville.
        So yes, Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care.
        (not you, Jim, the other Jimmy).

    • Patrick

      April 18, 2016 at 8:42 pm


      oh, that’s too much…. Sarah Brown… BACK IN CHARGE in Port Charles

      SHE would bring so much energy and INTEREST back to GH

      the sexual sparks ! she OWNS that

      • Timmm

        April 19, 2016 at 6:57 am

        I LOVED her and Bruce Weitz as Anthony!

      • Harry

        April 19, 2016 at 8:54 am

        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.

      • Shay

        April 20, 2016 at 2:52 am

        Here, here, Harry!!! I found Claudia to be an annoying, abrasive shrew, and was so glad when Mikey knocked her off. It was actually one of the few times in the history of GH when the “Corinthos Kid” served a useful purpose.

      • Harry

        April 20, 2016 at 4:14 pm

        Thank you, Shay. You’re like breath of fresh air.

    • Lisa

      April 23, 2016 at 6:07 pm

      I think that Claudette should be on the show and run into Nathan and Griffin at the sametime.

  4. Melissa

    April 18, 2016 at 8:48 am

    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 Maxie’s recent interactions with — oh, just about everybody — which is making her unlikeable of late. She is sort of coming off as a hard nosed snob who doesn’t have much patience for other people’s mistakes or problems.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      April 18, 2016 at 10:23 am

      They run into a dead end when Nathan first showed up…but i love his mutter Dr, Liesel-lol

      • Timmm

      Thank you, Melissa–I thought I was the only one who felt this way

  5. Robin

    April 18, 2016 at 8:53 am

    I truly think that either Nathan is the one who shot Griffin or Claudette is. I think Griffin loved Claudette, too.

  6. Robin

    April 18, 2016 at 8:54 am

    I think either Nathan or Claudette shot Griffin. It was a love triangle.

  7. Aria

    April 18, 2016 at 9:38 am

    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

      April 18, 2016 at 10:01 am

      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

        April 18, 2016 at 11:38 am

        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

        April 18, 2016 at 2:46 pm

        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

        April 20, 2016 at 2:31 am

        @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 similar years.

      • Shari

        April 20, 2016 at 12:20 pm

        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

        April 20, 2016 at 9:25 pm

        @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 the two, plus the obvious physical differences in terms of youthfulness. It simply never added up….Julian should have been a real silver fox male of a certain age from the get-go, end of story.

      • Shari

        April 20, 2016 at 11:16 pm

        Yes! More like Paul.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      April 18, 2016 at 10:24 am

      What if Griffen really is a transgender and is Claudette?-lol

      • Shari

        April 18, 2016 at 2:47 pm

        It would certainly keep GH current!

      • Anjee

        April 18, 2016 at 6:18 pm

        I think they are going to twist it up and do the transgender story too.

    April 18, 2016 at 11:22 am

    Oops, wait I read that wrong. Claudette needed a green card. (Michael, you don’t have to post this at all since I answered my own question, or rather you already did!)

  9. Lanie

    April 18, 2016 at 12:11 pm

    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

      April 18, 2016 at 12:35 pm

      Thanks for the laughs.

      Hey, it could be a storyline.

    • CeeCee

      April 18, 2016 at 1:29 pm

      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

        April 20, 2016 at 2:34 am

        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?

      • CeeCee

        April 20, 2016 at 10:57 am

        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!!!!!
        You do have a ‘point’ with these boys…GOTCHA!!
        I neither realized the simile nor the pun. Look at that!! HaHa….A bientot.

      • Shay

        April 20, 2016 at 9:00 pm

        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 where I don’t want to hear her name again.

    • Alan

      April 18, 2016 at 2:53 pm

      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).

    • I love gh

      April 18, 2016 at 5:03 pm

      Now that makes perfect sense! Nathan is not so law-abiding after all… He’s hiding something – Maxie will get involved & make Nathan mad when she keeps talking to Griffin…

      You nailed it.

  11. Patrick

    April 18, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    with all due respect to the characters of Nathan and Maxie

    especially Maxie… but I just do not want to see a pairing with her and Griffin

    Maxie , for lack of better wording…. the airhead ditz …. is the problem… she’s “fine” with Nathan… I don’t even mind that they are a matching set

    especially since… Maxie is FUN again… @ Crimson… and even with Nina and Dillan

    if this is going to turn in to a 4some… Claudette, Griffin, Maxie, and Nathan…

    so be it… I just do not want to see Griffin “dumbed” down

    so far… neither Carly or Maxie are good enough

    • Timmm

      April 19, 2016 at 7:39 am

      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.

  12. Terrence

    April 18, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    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

      April 19, 2016 at 7:44 am

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

    • Harry

      April 19, 2016 at 8:57 am

      Terrence, I don’t quite know how to say this but I will do my best.
      I don’t think that’s quite where the sex organs are located.

      • CeeCee

        April 19, 2016 at 1:50 pm

        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

        April 20, 2016 at 2:22 am

        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.

    April 18, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    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.

    Why dont they mak Liz a doctor. She could go back to med school and improve herself, be an example to her boys and stop being financially dependent on men to take care of her. Become a positive role model!
    Then bring on Parker and her wife and she would be another female doctor. I mean it’s 2016!!!

    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!

      With all due respect, Dan, Peavey’s French accent is right en pointe. He speaks with perfect accent and his knowledge of the language is impeccable. It is obvious to me he speaks flued French.

        C’est vrai, CeeCee! Ryan speaks perfect French….it’s the English language he seems to have trouble delivering with any sort of gusto! LOL….

        I lost my comment again, Shay. This keeps happening. Time for a new iPad.
        Anyway, Ryan’s accent and pronunciation of the French language sounds more Parisian to me than Canadien, eh?

      • Shay

        April 20, 2016 at 8:52 pm

        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.

      • Shay

        April 20, 2016 at 11:55 pm

        @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. Let’s just say that Nathan is rather, um, “basic,” and leave it at that! (Even if he does speak flawless French!)

      • Shay

        April 28, 2016 at 9:28 pm

        Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! You’ve been MIA for awhile…hope it’s just iPad related, simple boredom with GH, or a combination thereof! I’ve not been commenting all that much either, at least, not of late…..I’ve been busy and most disinterested in the majority of characters which have been heavily featured these last few weeks, although I am quite livid that Dr. O. has left the (hospital) building! (But please, not Port Charles….Oh, perish that thought!) I’m waiting for more Laura and Kevin, Anna and Griffin(?) and, of course, Finn and Roxy, but NOT Carly! (Two’s company, three’s a crowd…LOL!)….At any rate, hope all is well and that you at least receive this post in your inbox. Later!

    All great comments but Griffin is really Luke Spencer. He came back to help Laura figure out the mystery of Helena’s key. Liesl set it all up because she is the best pot stirrer. Griffin isn’t really Duke’s son. As for Nathan and Maxie? 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. There are so many great actors on GH that I don’t mind someone being a little stiff at times. (take that any way you want to). As far as Ryan Paevy (Nathan West) is concerned I could just watch him sit at his desk at the PCPD and be into him. So bring on Maxie and Nathan. Bring on Griffin and Luke and crazy stories cause I love GH even when they muddle through some crazy quirky storyline. I hope they don’t go the transgender route, not because I have issue with it or anything like that but after seeing how safe they played it on B&B I really don’t want to see another “trendy” issue written in. Just keep the great shows going. GH has been on fire lately and I can’t wait for each episode to come.

      Its okay to have Nathan be eye candy BUT they hand him some heavy stuff and it is so uncomfortable to watch him struggle!

      • Shay

        April 20, 2016 at 2:40 am

        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

        April 20, 2016 at 7:24 pm

        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.

    I still think Anna’s and Duke’s child is still alive. A while back i thought it was nathan. Then came Griffin but maybe it is Nathan and Griffin knows.

    • CeeCee

      April 20, 2016 at 8:07 am

      I so agree with you….I have said the same, Diana… have many others. I think either Griffin is Duke’s and Anna’s and was ‘stolen’ at birth; or Anna had him with Dr. Hayward, and the same ‘stolen’ baby scenario would also apply.

  18. Diana

    April 18, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    Or claudette is griffins younger half sister and nathan never met him

    I feel like Nathan is one of my favorites on the show right now. I’m hoping Claudette shows up and she’s not just another trouble making bitch, we have plenty of that these days. Griffin hasn’t really interested me at all so far, aside from being Duke’s son. Maybe he has a dark side? Hopefully?

  20. jaybird369

    April 19, 2016 at 7:12 pm

    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……….

    • Timmm

      April 20, 2016 at 7:41 am

      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 would be shaken. It solves a problem of “What to do with Nathan?”

      • Shay

        April 20, 2016 at 9:15 pm

        @Timmm….Given the choice, I’d rather keep Nathan and kill off Nina, and I’m no great fan of Detective West!

    • CeeCee

      April 20, 2016 at 8:11 am

      Lol, jay….gay or not, with his looks, even a straight man would go for Nathan.

  21. jaybird369

    April 19, 2016 at 7:15 pm

    Correction: It’s ‘even’ and not ‘evan’. Sorry about that.

    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.

  23. dmr

    April 20, 2016 at 6:59 am

    I’m very bored with this storyline, although I like both Griffin and Nathan. The storyline that I find most boring is Dante and Lulu working on their marriage. Since the actress was re-casted a few years ago, I’m just not interested in this couple.

    • CeeCee

      April 20, 2016 at 11:05 am

    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 snoozefest that is Nathan. He always was and always will be the eye candy guy with very little character substance. I have always felt the Naxie pairing was badly mismatched from day one and wouldn’t be upset at all if they break up and maybe they take Nathan in a different direction to liven him up. I don’t fall asleep when Nathan is around Nina or Dr. O but the rest of the time it’s nap time for me.

    One of the positive reasons in making Griffin the son of Duke was on display in his talk with Maxie given that she is both a Jones and Scorpio and those two families were close to Duke in the mid to late 80’s. Anna, Felicia, and Robin adored him. Robert and Frisco were on the right side of the law and had their issues with Duke from time to time but when the chips were down they worked together to nab a common foe. Duke was presumed dead the same year Maxie was born but they got to know each other for a few years in 13-15 so it was great seeing her telling Griffin about the good in Duke.

    He is either Claudette, and they are going to do a transgender story, OR parts of me wonder, is he really Carlos’ son?? Still wondering about that gunshot wound to his stomach.

    I whole heartedly believe that Griffin was Claudette. I think it makes sense, with Lucas, Brad, Kristina and Felix, to introduce a transgender character. So I won’t be shocked if that is revealed.

  30. Sandy

    May 4, 2016 at 8:43 am

    I love Nathan, I want him to stay. I want him and Maxi to stay together. I do want to know how Griffin falls into place. I don’t want Nathan to be a bad guy.

  31. Sandy

    May 4, 2016 at 8:45 am

    No Griffin can not be Claudet if they want to bring a transgender that is fine but not Griffin. I want him and Anna to get together.

  32. Liam

    May 8, 2016 at 8:56 am

    I am still stuck on the fact that there has been absolutely no mention of Griffin’s mom being Sister Camellia from the 80’s. All the pieces fit, but why not just disclose that?? 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 his sister.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
