GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.

I’ve always felt like Julian was a weasel but now I really feel sorry for him not only that but renoult is finally turning into a psycho creepy villain.

Yes, a weasel and worse–he attempted to murder Alexis. That should have spelled his demise. GH loves to hang on to its villain to its great detriment.

GH has been “on fire” as of late. Ever since the return of soaps since layoff, it has left the other 3 shows in the dust. It’s all about the writing, and great actors able to make us care about their characters. William deVry (one of soap’s hottest hunks) has been particularly strong as of late, his farewell (?) to Alexis was brilliant. That entire scene was a highlight reel for both actors. Dustin and Dev are probably dead, maybe Sam and Jason’s son 🙁 I just can’t believe LuLu is dead, maybe she disappears. What about Elizabeth and Franco?!… Read more »

I’m guessing Lulu goes into a coma, is sent to Crichton Clark for long-term care and wakes up (Julie Berman) sometime in May sweeps. Danny might also be heading to a coma. This should definitely be the end of “Jasam” as they no longer work as a couple. Really can’t see them killing another Quartermaine. What if Danny gets brain damage like his dad, but insists on going to live with “grandma Monica”? Dev could be a goner, but killing another teen less than 2 years from Oscar? The character wasn’t drawn out and wouldn’t be missed in a few… Read more »

On second thought, I now foresee Lulu slipping into a catatonic state like Laura did. Julie Berman will “wake up” in the role just as Dante is prepared to marry whomever his new love interest is.

Best outcome would be Dustin (completely useless character from day one) Dev (long outlived his usefulness) and Frodd (geezus, do I even need to spell this one out?) all dead, nobody else injured seriously at all. Unfortunately, we already know Lulu is gone, as the Valentini regime seems determined to carry on Garin Wolf’s mission of completely destroying the Spencer family. (Ironically the very people who saved GH from cancellation in the 1970s). So Lulu is a likely causualty. Though one can hope she’s merely injured with facial injuries so bad that she’ll wake up in the hospital with her… Read more »

The writers suck. In this miserable time we are going through why are you getting rid of characters we love. Get rid of Dustin, boring Willow, Brad, Lucas, Ryan, Cyrus, and Anna’s twin, the police commissioner, bring back Liesel she is too funny keep my favorite Franco, and Billy Miller’s character. Dont let Sasha die.

I REALLY don’t like what they’ve done to the character of Julian. Ever since he cut the brake lines on Lucas and Brad’s car, it’s been all downhill. Why would he marry Nelle? Why would he do Cyrus’s bidding? They worked so hard to redeem Julian in the eyes of his family as well as Alexis, and now with Kim out of town and Neil dead, it was the perfect opportunity to reunite “Julexis.” What a waste of story potential, a great character, and an equally great actor. I just hope Julian doesn’t die, and can return in a few… Read more »

I love William deVry. His talent is immense, however Julian is written Mr.deVry owns the screen. Extricated out of the Mob, trying desperately to become a “good man” for his family. No matter how he tried – always trying to save his own bacon, his relationship with Alexis, save Ava or keep his relationships with his kids safe- Julian ties the end of his rope in a slipknot. Boyfriend to Kim (loved the dynamic of what could have been between a – not grieving but feisty Kim and a little bit bad Julian. (uber talent Tamara Braun) I hope IF… Read more »

I have not always been a Julian fan but like the actor. I did like him and Alexis but they deemed to ruin that relationship despite nothing good coming to either character since. That bomb was like throwing spaghetti at the wall and watching to see which one sticks. In this case, which one or ones will die. I do not believe they all will live. .I had read a while ago that Lulu leaves town, and certainly Laura will be saved, so don’t know about them .I can’t see them killing off Jason and his innocent son. Since they’ve… Read more »

I really hate how the writers dismantled Julian’s character piece by piece. They have done everything in their power to make him un redeemable. I feel like it was deliberate. I especially hate how they destroyed Julexis. They had so much potential but the writers and EP blew it! They had the perfect opportunity to reunite Julexis after Kim left town and Neil died but again they refused to do it!. Instead they destroyed Julian and let William deVry go! I really hope that Julian doesn’t really die and that they decide to bring WDV back. He’s one of my… Read more »

I think Julian will either take off and leave town or Dante will catch him and hold him till the PCPD comes, they haul him to the police station, because he’s a suspect, they later find out that he planted the bomb, he goes to prison for however long they bring him or his replacement back. Somebody had said that Lulu might be in a coma, maybe for a while, till they replace her and Elizabeth will contact Dr. Drake to do surgery on Franco, everybody else just got knocked out, but will be alright….my opinions…lol

Really didn’t want him to go out as a bomber. Even if he was being forced to by Cyrus. Why couldn’t he just fake his death without planting that bomb!! I love William Devry and his character Julian. They should have left it so this amazing character could come back to the canvas someday…

For someone who has been affiliated with the mob Julian acts like a Simple Simon and doesn’t know how to get himself out of this situation.F

As if there isn’t enough death, dying, drugs, destruction going on in real life. Is this the best GH writers can come up with for “entertainment?” Especially before Thanksgiving! And even commenters adding their own “pleasant” two cents. How the once mighty GH has fallen from love and adventure in the afternoon.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, it doesn’t look like we’re getting a Quartermaine pizza episode this year.

The official Thanksgiving episode will actually air next Monday, which seems a little ridiculous, but they’re going with an Xmas rerun on Thursday, and they aren’t airing anything on Friday (preempted for football, most likely). Given the bombing and the aftermath of that, they probably didn’t think they could go from that to a Thanksgiving episode on Wednesday. If they throw in a 4 day weekend before they start carving up the turkeys (or ordering the pizzas, as the case may be) they can at least give the illusion of some time between the death & carnage, and a bunch… Read more »

GH might not get the #1 spot in the ratings BUT it is the best soap on TV! The writers are doing such a wonderful job. Friday’s show was old school, a cliffhanger in a ratings period that was done perfectly with several actors performances standing out. On Monday, here is what I think will happen. 1.Julian must run and run far far away! 2. Franco dies saving Danny. Franco will go out a hero. Plus, we know, unless there is a recast, Patrick is not coming to PC to operate on Franco’s tumor. Franco out, Todd in! 3. Lulu… Read more »

I just don’t get why they have gotten rid of Julian or lulu!! to bring back an idiot like brad who is nothing but an idiot
they could have changed the story without losing 2 great cast member’s so disgusted!

Parry Shen (Brad) is not on contract. They only pay him when he airs. William deVry and Emme Ryland are contract performers with guarantees and other associated fixed costs. Sadly, budget continues to be a driving force for soaps.

I am angry that they finally brought Dante back only to kill off Lulu. They needed to be reunited. Also, the same with Julian and Alexis. I am tired of all this Cyrus crap. There is so much heartache in the world right now it would be nice to see some hope. I am 66 years old and I watched GH with my mom after school but I am done with it until they are done with this horror.

I just want Franco, Elizabeth, and Cameron to be safe. If the writers had the guts to go for poetic justice, Danny would be injured due to his father’s and grandfather’s continued mob ties and loyalty.

Satan

In what world does “poetic justice” include a supposed serial killer, who never paid for any of his crimes walking away, while an innocent child pays for his grandfather’s idiocy?

Just wondering, because we’re looking for “poets” like that at Hell’s “Open Mic Night”

In a world where Franco has a legitimate medical reason for behavior and has CHANGED and Jason continues to put Sonny and the mob ahead of his children’s safety.

Poetic justice is not a child suffering for his parent’s crimes. If you look up the meaning it will explain it better than I can. Poetic justice would have been if Julian had been killed by the bomb himself.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
