GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

Courtesy/ABC

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

Wil & Nancy knocked it out of the park Friday. These scenes had to happen but I’m hoping Julexis survives. OTP My fav couple in many years. Sexy, smart, loving, witty.

Wil & Nancy were amazing(!) when the therapy scenes turned emotional. Hope this is the start of a lot more therapy, and a reunion, for Julian & Alexis. There’s so much potential for good, emotional drama if GH goes there.

I truly hope it is a fresh start. I watched for Nancy Lee Grahn and her pairing with William DeVry. I am willing to accept any story that will explain or fix the awful story written for their characters. The acting and chemistry between Nancy and Will is exceptional for the show and the genre. I do not understand why GH chose this very unpopular and dead end storyline.

the julexis therapy scenes were fantastic on Friday! loved every bit! the therapy scenes should not only give them a better explanation of themselves but also a chance for redemption. it’s gonna provide hopefully a fresh start for the two.in attending these sessions I believe that both Alexis and Julian will fall even more in love and will spark a reunion for the pair. so excited for these scenes and can’t wait for more julexis therapy sessions to air!

Wil and Nancy turned in riveting performances on Friday’s episode. Fantastic soapy material! I really hope GH gives them and their fans a well-told story that honors Julian and Alexis’ love and history together. I want to watch Julian and Alexis fall in love with each other all over again. Here for more joint therapy and hoping it leads to a healthier Julian and Alexis giving their relationship another go.

Nor do I, Harry! Me thinks this is just a lame exercise in a futile attempt to justify reuniting this toxic twosome. And it won’t wash!

This scene was incredible! I hope that they continue to write for Alexis in this way, and show her journey, in part, thru her therapy sessions with Kevin. I am a #Julexis fan and the chemistry between William and Nancy is undeniable! There is absolutely no chemistry between Julian and boring Kim (UGH)! This couple (and these scenes) reminded me of how I used to feel about Sonny and Brenda in the ’90’s!

I, want the old intriguing gangsta Julian back..
I don’t care for this Powderpuff version of a once Sonny adversary of Sonny, I luved they power play them being the Nemesis .
Now it’s been like watching two old men ready to enter the Sunnyside Nursing Home.
They both have lost their fire lost themselves, sigh .

Well it looks like Julian , the old dog, hasn’t forgotten his old tricks, since he’s found a new bone, and won’t let go, until he finds out about Lucas and Brad’s baby mommy.It has to be Hayden or possibly Nelle, if the baby makes it.
Second thoughts about Hayden. I don’t believe she’d give her and Finn’s child to the little PR*** that tried holding them up for money he demanded for helping Finn when developing his new drug.
