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’m hoping it will reunite Julexis!!!

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.

I love Julexis, have since the beginning and still do… Nancy and Wil have incredible chem.

So I’m rooting for them to work through everything great work on Friday by both !

Love Julexis so much and hope they can find their way back to each other.

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.

Julian and Alexis is the highest league in the General Hospital

“I really don’t care, do U?”

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!

The Rolling Stones, Melania…you’re on a roll, Harry! LOL

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 totally agree!!

Love Alexis and Julian together. Looking forward to more of their story. Love the therapy aspect

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 .

Um, that’s Sonnyside Nursing Home to you, little missy.

juilan & Alexis should be together gh they belong together & love them two they have a lot chemistry to

I loveeee Alexis and Julian!! Please gh reunite them ❤️❤️❤️

I love Alexis and Julian!!! Pleas gh reunite them! ❤️❤️❤️

Julian and Alexis in therapy together?!?!? If I was Kim, I would be TOTALLY furious…lol.

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.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.
