GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kristina Annoys Molly and TJ with Her Offer to be Their Surrogate


The General Hospital recap for Friday July 14th finds Kristina (Kate Mansi) being too pushy, and Molly (Holiday Mia Kriegel), TJ (Tajh Bellow) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) on edge.  Previously, Molly overheard Kristina suggest that she become TJ and Molly’s surrogate in a conversation with Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Alexis while at the Savoy.

The aftermath of that statement is now having a ripple effect through the family.  First, Alexis wants Sonny (Maurice Benard) to talk her daughter down from this notion.

Meanwhile at GH, TJ tells Portia (Brook Kerr), Trina (Tabyana Ali) and the rest of the family that Curtis (Donnell Turner) has made it through the surgery. The operating physician, Dr. Bernstorff, reveals that although they were able to remove the bullet, there were complications … Curtis remains in the ICU, still unconscious at the moment.

Next, Kristina approaches both TJ and Molly sharing how relieved she is that Curtis made it through surgery.  TJ gets angry and lashes out at Kristina that Curtis could have died!  As he walks away, Molly pushes away her sister, telling her, “Not now!”

Later, Kristina finds Molly alone. She asks if TJ is okay.  Molly fires back, “Not everything is about you!”  Kristina is confused. Molly pipes up and says she overheard her offer at the Savoy to give TJ the baby she can’t.  Molly goes on to say that, as always, Kristina is making everything about her, including this proposed surrogacy.

Kristina is taken aback. She claims she was not thinking about herself, but her little sister. She points out she was willing to give up a year of her life to carry a baby to term for her, and yet, Molly is accusing her of being the selfish one.

Not wanting to continue the conversation because of Curtis’ condition, Molly asks Kristina to drop the subject, but Kristina won’t let up. TJ finds them arguing in the hallway of GH and asks them to keep it down. Alexis arrives out of the elevator, as Kristina blurts out she is clearly not good enough to be their surrogate and God forbid, the baby should turn out like her, and storms off.

So, are you annoyed with Kristina? Does this storyline annoy you? Are you intrigued to see how it would play out with Kristina as the surrogate for Molly and TJ, or do you want someone else to be their surrogate? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

Do not like this new Molly. Even though Kristina can be a pest and obnoxious, she means well and comes on like a Mack truck. Subtly is not her thing. I’m glad she just walked away from them, they treat her like crap! I’m dying to see Molly fall off that high horse she’s on, such an uppity twit.

Violet, my friend, where do I begin? Everything you noted is true but… I’d rather watch paint dry than see any of these characters on my screen. The show is in one of those occasional troughs when every story is either: (1) dull beyond words, (2) moving slower than Dante’s brain cells, and/or (3) involves behavior that’s so repulsive (Tracy’s and Gladys’ stories) you can’t even enjoy watching it. For once, Y&R is more watchable than these tawdry tales.

No more baby hungry storylines! Even if it were the original actors playing these roles, I’d be fast forwarding through them. I never liked Molly so I’m not upset about the replacement. They should have just written Molly off the show.

Exactly right!

Boy, are you right. While GH has always been one of my favorites, I have to say a lot of the players are not , especially Gladys, Tracy, Nina, Carly, Maxi, Kristina, Molly, Sam, Joss, Trina, Portia Ms.Wu, Sasha’s new letch Dr.,et all , bad spelling here, sorry. I won’t bore you with any more, didn’t realize there was that many that I couldn’t stand. I shouldn’t be watching, just habit I guess. Poor Dante, yes his brain is slow, how is he a cop?

I agree with most of the characters you dislike, Violet. I do like Nina but not with Sonny. She did a naughty thing but Carly and Drew deserved it—they did baaad!! LOL. Nina is just misunderstood —She’s been victimized my her own mother—if that doesn’t leave scars within one’s being, I don’t know what does. Carly is simply trash—no better word to describe her. And, Joss is following in her footsteps. Maxie is OK—I don’t know about the hair and eyebrows, though.

Yes, Soaphound—you said it!! Y&R is so much more watchable than GH these days.
Molly is another iffy character—no charisma—as far as Kristina, Kate is handling the character better than I expected.
Dante’s brain cells? Not Alighieri’s, right? LOL. He did modify Latin into Italian, afterall——Oh, you mean that Dante.

Please, please GH writers wrap up at least 1 storyline !!! Too many going on an am losing interest in the whole show !!

How do you wrap up a story when you don’t know who’s showing up to play the characters from one week to the next?

This would have been an awkward story even without recasts.

Kelly Monaco Celebrates 20 Years on GH and Sam’s Evolution: “All the Pieces Don’t Fit Perfectly Yet, But It’s Certainly Not Broken Anymore!”

Sunday, October 1st will mark the 20th anniversary of Kelly Monaco’s debut on General Hospital as Sam McCall.  And as the story goes, when Kelly finished her run on Port Charles as Livvie Locke (2000-2003), and the show had been canceled, the three major networks were all interested in her to join their soaps.

In the end, GH won out and fans of the ABC daytime drama series have been the lucky ones to have Monaco join the A-list cast of the iconic soap. Throughout Sam’s journey in Port Charles, viewers have seen quite the character growth. Sam started on the show as a con and hustler, and bloomed into a bonafide heroine and a private investigator.

Kelly shared with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue, how she viewed the Sam of old, to the Sam of today: “Sam came on to the canvas only having herself and her brother, always taking care of someone, and never being taken care of.  I think the biggest evolution for her is starting from being a really lonely, scared woman and becoming a woman who is still really independent, but is protected by family and friends and love and relationships and loyalty, and she never had that before.”

In a very poetic way, Monaco added on her character’s development: “She came in bent and broken, and I feel like there’s a lot of her that’s still broken, but she’s constantly sort of putting the Rubik’s Cube together. All the pieces don’t fit perfectly, yet, but it’s certainly not broken anymore.”

Throughout Sam’s two decades in Port Charles she has been in love, suffered terrible lost, found family members, had children, and has been involved in some of the most dangerous and criminal cases involving many a villain as she tried to help bring them to justice.

Currently, Sam is involved in a romance with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).  Viewers wonder if Lulu ever wakes up out of her coma, would that spell trouble for their relationship, and in turn, give Kelly some great meaty story to work with?

Now, in the comment section below, share your congrats to Kelly for her 20-year-run on GH. Then let us know, what has been your favorite Sam story over the years?
