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?

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

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 »

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
