GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

Courtesy/ABC

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?

Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!

Courtes/ABC

As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?

So, what did you think about Kim drugging Drew? Who pushed Liesl overboard? What trouble will Hayden cause?  Share your theories via the comment section below.

I’ll go along for the ride with anything they want to do with the characters that were involved in this episode but the one thing I won’t take lightly is if Liesl drowns. No way in Hell do you let Kathleen Gati go. That woman is a goddess!!!

I love K.G as much as anyone, but it is so ironic that so many love this really bad, but enjoyable person, Dr.O, that has committed so many horrible crimes against the people of P.C, with nary a blink of an eye, is really never held accountable, for very long anyway, and continues to reep mischief and mayhem, to say the least This thing with Nelle, being Wylie’s mother, and Michael being kept from his child, is nothing but pure evilness, and what is Liesl getting out of it? Franco is hated by so many viewers, and is no way… Read more »

Well, Violet, we at MFTV have long debated this very topic before, and it always ends up in the same way. Those of us who adore Kathleen Gati’s very “dark lady,” Liesl, simply point out that for decades we have had Sonny and his criminal minions running about Port Charles pretty much unscathed, Nutty Nina pulling plenty of scary-crazy stunts and getting off scot-free from all of them by playing the “LooneyCard” and there’s also that evil vixen Ava perpetrating any and every misdeed imaginable and wriggling out of justice’s clutches time and time again, so why should Obrecht be… Read more »

Gotcha! I do love K.G, I would just love to see her in a good light, once in a while, as Liesel.

Me, too, Violet! We have already seen those rare glimpses into Liesl’s psyche where it is painfully obvious that this is a woman who loves deeply and passionately…be it for her once-beloved Faison or her kinder…she is simply one of those unfortunate people who have a really strange (albeit comical) way of showing it! I would be thrilled if GH were to explore Obrecht’s “softer side” whilst highlighting Kathleen Gati’s incredible voice and talent for performing In any and all venues. If she can’t have her own nightclub in which to do so, perhaps she could launch GH’s music therapy… Read more »

Shay Thank you dear lady for the kind words. My granddaughter, busy as she is was able to solve my dilemma. She said, ” grandma, what did you do, offend someone, or say something WEIRD?” She knows me well. As for this Franco thing, I know many do not like him, but guess I am one of the few that do. I have never been able to hold over the terrible feelings for him, when played by James Franco, although I have enjoyed that actor in other roles. To me Liz and Franco are like the Beauty and the Beast.… Read more »

By the way, your granddaughter sounds like a real gem….so glad she sorted you out!! (But, excuse me…YOU, say something WEIRD? Well, I never….Lol.)

Hi Shay
Thanks for your quick reply. I’ve really missed “talking” to you and others.
I must say, after growing up in Conn. I do miss the snow, especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas time. It took me a long time, after moving to Ca. to get used to 70 degree at the holidays.( can’t find the little degree mark on my keyboard.)
Am sorry to lose Billy Miller, and am wondering if there will be a replacement.

Shay
Guest

You’re most welcome, Violet, although I’m sorry to say that this response was not quite so rapid! As I’m still dealing with high heat and humidity here, the thought of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and yes, SNOW! is a tantalizing one! I can just imagine how strange it is to celebrate those holidays in non-stop sunshine and temperate conditions…In years when we even fail to have the frosty stuff, it’s so disappointing…and difficult to get into the proper atmospheric mood without a fresh snowfall and pronounced chill in the air. In terms of Billy Miller, I cannot fathom why a replacement would… Read more »

Kathleen Gati is a natural comedienne who spins Liesl’s paltry storyline straw into golden hilarity. No matter how daft the situation, Dr. O. always delivers the laughs…she needs to be placed front and center to tie up so many of the loose ends that GH has left dangling over these past few years. Obrecht is definitely the lady with the answers to the questions we’ve been asking, as she obviously knows where all the skeletons of Port Charles’ past are buried! How delicious and malicious it would be if she were to open her personal “Pandora’s Box” to unleash untold… Read more »

This is twisted, dark and sick. Sexual assault is sexual assault no matter what the gender and no matter what the circumstance. I don’t find this to be remotely entertaining. Billy Miller and Tamra Braun deserve better and so do their characters.

Hi Harry
I for one am so sick of Kim. She’s getting on my last nerve, and I’m so glad she didn’t have her way with Drew, which could have been a treat if he’d been a willing participant. Oh sorry, but If she could put on some weight, she would be an asset to any football team, with those shoulders!

Guest
rebecca1

I don’t see this as “sexual assault”, Harry, not in the “usual” sense. Kim is not a sexual predator, a rapist nor was she even realizing in the moment that she was about to commit “sexual assault.” Rather it’s the story of a woman so drowning in her grief that she’s lost herself and her ability to use reason over her emotions. She did the same thing when she was willing to take Oscar against his will out of the country for treatment. She was desperate then to save him and she’s desperate now to hold on to him in… Read more »

Harry
Guest
Harry

Rebecca, I respectfully disagree. You don’t need to explain to me about how Kim is in a state of abject grief and despair–that’s quite obvious. But she lured Drew to the breakers of the Haunted Star and stabbed him with a syringe full of tranquilizers. Then she drags his drugged induced slumbering body to a room in which she plans on having her way with him. Had Julian not interrupted, she would have succeeded in raping Drew. Imagine, just for one minute, if it were Drew doing this to Kim. Kim is in desperate need of inpatient care and I… Read more »

Harry; I didn’t say it wasn’t sexual assault and leave it at that, but rather, I clarified it with sexual assault “not in the usual sense.” And by that I mean, this was not an intent to sexually assault him for sexual/pleasurable reasons and this was not an act of violence as rape is. And, though you do say you know she’s in grief, which I think is a given to anyone watching, you tend to overlook the human, emotional side of things and just go to the “crime.” Drew and Kim shared a child together. They lost that child.… Read more »

Shay
Guest
Shay

Amen, Harry! You are exactly right…as is your apt description of “twisted, dark and sick!” You especially nailed it when you noted “sexual assault is sexual assault no what the gender and no matter what the circumstance!” Me thinks that if the roles were reversed and we had a male perpetrating the same stunt as Kim, we would be treated to a much different tune than one of praise for this deplorable storyline…in fact, there would be the typical femme response raising Cain over it!

Harry
Guest
Harry

Thank you, Shay. That’s it exactly.

rebecca1

Seems like some who think Kim’s act of grief, desperation in a time of complete loss of self was “sexual assault”, yet in reality voted for a man who admitted to sexual assault “because he can” and they “let him do whatever he wants”…Go figure….

Shay
Guest
Shay

You’re welcome, Harry! Even though I adore “dark comedy,” I find nothing amusing or entertaining about drugging an unsuspecting person in order to have one’s way with them….not only is that completely immoral, but it’s also totally illegal. And being overcome with grief is hardly an acceptable defense for such egregious behavior. Many people suffer unimaginable losses each and every day in this world, but I dare say, most don’t resort to rape as a means to alleviate their pain!!!

rebecca1
Guest

Hahaha…I love how the voter/fan of the sexual molester in the White House is still trying to proclaim her “distaste”… how utterly her delicate sensibilities were offended… by the depiction of a fictional mother, who, while in the throes of grieving her child, is driven to an act of desperation….which was not meant as “dark comedy” nor was she trying to “alleviate her pain with rape”… but rather serious drama about a broken woman and the lengths she would go to to attempt to recreate a piece of the child she lost. THAT is offensive to this poster…but grabbing a… Read more »

Free us of Kim “Zero!” I’ve never been a Rebecca Budig fan. I find Hayden annoying. I love “Dr. O!”

Yes, Yes, and YES, DMRR! I cannot stand either “Dr. Zero” or Hayden…Both are surplus to requirement on GH and I would have been perfectly content if the latter never returned to Port Charles! However, Dr. O’s another matter entirely! This character deserves a major storyline and the sooner, the better! Liesl ties in with so many of the legacy characters we have known and loved through the years, so she’s a total natural to be featured in a much larger capacity than she has been since her family was torn asunder. Bring back Britt, recognize Sasha as either another… Read more »

Either figure out something to do with Britt, or write her off. She’s dead weight right now. Figure out a plot twist for her ASAP.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Nancy…I agree that Britt—and Dr. O—-should have a substantial storyline…especially one which highlights both their quirky personas and immense talents for offbeat and outre’ situations. To have two such gifted actresses as Kelly Thiebauld and Kathleen Gati given GH backbencher status is a true travesty. Obviously, were there the will, then there would be a way, since we never seem to face a shortage of far-fetched machinations to shoehorn Ava and Nina into every and any story that really has nothing to do with them….the Kevin/Ryan highjinks being the latest example.

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

I don’t know who looked more suspicious, Valentin or Brad, and they both went missing for a while, before Liesel went O.B. I loved her natural curly hair, after getting dunked.
I thought Billy Miller was great. I never saw anyone look so surprised , with the what the f***? look, when he woke up in that bed.
I was surprised at Heyden’s greeting for Jax, as was everyone else.
I don’t think anyone was more surprised than Terry, catching the bouquet.
All in all, made for a good wedding reception, and surprise, no one was murdered!

Did Bobbie disappear around the time Liesl was thrown overboard? I haven’t been watching much. Does Bobbie know about Liesl’s involvement in the baby drama?

If Dr. Ooblech had actually drowned, then the question of who threw her overboard might have been interesting. Since she survived…. well, who cares, really?? As far as Kim’s rapey ambitions go…… well, I’m a Devil, not a doctor, but I would guess that a heavy dose of depressant drugs, like whatever she shot up Drew with, would significantly slow down the circulatory system, which would NOT be a beneficial thing for (ahem) certain parts of the male anatomy. Julian broke into the room before she could actually attempt intercourse, so technically we will never know, but it really seems… Read more »

@Kay…Billy was fabulous as the villainous Charlie/aka, John DeLario, in the little-watched 2011 Sarah Michelle Gellar CW tv series “Ringer!” Back then, I didn’t recognize him from the soapworld, having not seen either AMC/Y&R in years, but he totally impressed me with his dark and devious characterization, which was worlds away from his positive, sunny “Cousin Billy” image for which he became renowned. In fact, when Miller arrived on the GH scene, it took me awhile to realize that he was the same guy who had superbly played such a nasty scoundrel! Why Billy has not made a gigantic leap… Read more »

This is true, Kay! And if Billy chooses to do so, I wish him the best of luck! He’s too good for GH…as is Becky Herbst! The ridiculous storylines she’s been handed over these past few years have been utterly preposterous! Whilst I did think Miller’s “Jake/Jason” had wonderful chemistry with “Liz” and that their romance should have been played out more extensively, but good God, putting her with Franco just makes me want to hurl…I’ll never be able to unsee all the freaky-deaky evil his character perpetrated throughout the years, and now we’re supposed to “ooh” and “ahh” over… Read more »

Kay, I agree with you yet again. It’s a wonder Drew still likes women. Let’s see, since he’s arrived in Port Charles he has had: 1. Hayden pretend that she was his wife. 2. Lizzy, pretend that she doesn’t know that he’s really Jason. 3. Sam pretend that she doesn’t really know that he’s not Jason and then dumps him when the truth becomes glaringly self-evident. 4. Margaux pretend to like him only to use him as ammunition and then hides his memory flash drive from him in order to black mail him and finally, 5. Kim drugs him and… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
