GENERAL HOSPITAL: How Will The Judge Rule On The Competency Of Franco Baldwin?

Photo: JPI

Monday’s upcoming episode of General Hospital should provide the judges ruling in the competency hearing of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who has been mind-mapped with Drew Cain’s memories.  And if you caught last Friday’s episode, the judges decision will impact several lives in Port Charles.

For instance, Peter (Wes Ramsey) is completely preoccupied with Franco’s hearing and the results and what this could mean for his secrets, lies, and connection to Helena Cassadine to be exposed.

But At the courthouse, Scott (Kin Shriner) continues to pressure Kim (Tamra Braun), about the night she drugged Drew (then Billy Miller) against his will in order to conceive a child.  Kim confesses she did that, but she was driven by grief.  It looks like this Intel was a shock to the new-mind mapped version of Drew.

Later, when Franco takes the stand. his lawyer Martin (Michael Knight) attempts to prove that as Drew, Franco entirely understands his relation to space, times, dates, etc, including his time in Afghanistan; which began July 2010.  Martin tells the judge all of this illustrates that Franco can make his own decisions.

But hold on a minute! Liz (Rebecca Herbst) tells Scott (who is desperately trying to help his son and win this case) that Franco was in Los Angeles and was being questioned by the police for his involvement in the two murders at the MOCA Museum back in July 2010.  Franco says he has no memory of this – although for a moment Franco looks upset about his former life –  but insists he was in Afghanistan at the time.  Scott tells the court this proves that Franco is not competent.

Martin’s medical witness is late getting to the court, but meanwhile, Scott’s witness, Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) does show up and wants to speak to Scott before he puts him on the stand.  Scott feels that having Kevin testify will be all it will take to prove Franco is not competent, but things take a shocking turn.  That’s when Kevin testifies that Franco meets the legal standards to make his own medical decisions and is in control of himself.

Next, Martin realizes he has got an advantage after Kevin’s testimony without having to have his late witness show up.  Kevin did enough damage to Liz and Scott’s case as one could do.

Kim comforts Franco, while Cameron (William Lipton), Liz, and Scott look on as the judge goes to think over the testimonies and render her decision.  Shortly after her exit, she returns to the courtroom and is ready to tell what she has decided.

Throughout the episode, we have to give kudos to Kin Shriner, who through Scott’s eyes, we could feel the ebb and flow of the case, and how he was all at once a lawyer trying to win a case, and a father fighting for the return of the son he loves.

So, how do you think the judge will rule? What do you hope happens next? Share your theories via the comment section below.

There is absolutely no doubt that Franco will be written as the zero personality character Franco, again because the writers are lazy and totally burnt-out to create anything new and exciting. GH is beyong bland, these days. Franco with Liz has totally killed the exciting Franco character and turned him into a nothing. What do Liz and Franco do together, Nothing. Liz is a drain on Franco turning him into a BLAH .. ahaa Liz the man character destroyer she will kill an exciting character off in a month with her boring stale uck of a zero life. I want… Read more »

Scott and Martin were terrific! Who will win? Sorry but I have two theories.

Kim: Her and Drew leave PC, Drew is drawn back to PC for some reason and needs to have his memories replaced. He is about to die and then on Christmas, he awakens with Liz at his bedside and reclaims his identity as Franco.

Liz: If Liz wins, Kim will have nothing and leave town. Tamara is leaving the show so this would be a good excuse for her to leave and maybe someday return.

Michael E. Knight’s fake accent is cringe-worthy. It’s right up there with Nutty Kim “Zero” and the parking lot flop’s “acting.”

This Drodd thing is such an over the top steaming pile of dragonshit, I’m almost ready to send Shiloh back up there, because as tedious as he was, at least he wasn’t pretending to be somebody else, and half the town playing along for no good reason.

I was RH’s waiter back in the 90s.
and all I can say is,I think his career didn’t go the way he wanted it to, but, he’s plodding along.
Godbless.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
