GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lulu Is Served Divorce Papers From Dante

Photo: ABC

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital. Lulu (Emme Rylan) was in for a shocker when she was served divorce papers while hanging out at Aiden’s birthday party.  Prior to receiving the divorce papers, Lulu and daughter, Charlotte had been lamenting about Dante.

Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) asked Lulu when Dante is coming back?  She says she misses him and being a family together, and Lulu sadly agreed she missed him too.  When a stunned Lulu is served the papers, she tells her mother, Laura (Genie Francis) what they are.

So, what is going on here? We know that Peter (Wes Ramsey) got shot in the shoulder by Dante on his visit with Maxie (Kirsten Storms) to Ithaca to see him to hopefully bring him home to Lulu which backfired.

Since Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is not on the canvas as a series regular at this point, it would appear that GH is looking for a way to free up the character of Lulu for  now. But as we know on GH things may not be as they appear.  Did Dante really have those papers drawn up, or is this some manipulation from someone else?

When viewers last saw Dante he was leaving Port Charles to be deprogrammed after suffering severe PTSD from his time in Turkey.  In addition, viewers recently saw a potential new man in Lulu’s life arrive on the scene when former OLTL alum, Mark Lawson appeared as Dustin Phillips.

After yesterday’s episode aired, Zamprogna tweeted in response to the storyline twist, while having some fun about his former co-star Emme Rylan: “She’s gonna be damn heart broken! For at least 5 mins! Then she’s gonna knit something. Hopefully some underwear for Dante.”

So, are you upset that Lulu was served with divorce papers . … or are you glad and want the character to move on in her romantic life? Comment below.

It’s about time they move this forward. I hope Mark Lawson becomes a regular and later turns out to be Brody.

Brody Lovett from One Life To Live. That’s who Mark Lawson played.

Come back, Dante!!! Lulu and the fans need you!!!

If Dominic isn’t coming back they should just recast the role with Jeff Branson!

I love Jeff, Phil….but, two little people such as Sonny and Olivia could never produce someone who’s about 6’2″ tall. LOL….
However, if that were to happen, Emme is about my height and size—Jeff is a bit shorter than my husband—-yeah, the discrepancy in height is not so bad. LOL.
However, I want to ‘reserve’ Jeff for Y&R—he and Michelle Stafford created a lot of steam—-never have I seen two actors be so in sync as ‘paramours’.

Who ?

Yes. Glad that they are removing him this way rather than killing the character off.

Since they didn’t really write for Dante DZ’s last two years on the show, this is an acceptable plot. I’d say the character would return eventually, but he’s likely to join the Jeff Webber/Frisco Jones/Lucky Spencer deadbeat dad club should he ever get through the PTSD.

I don’t like any of the mob BS of GH. Never have been a fan of Sonny or the murderer Jason Morgan (Quartermaine). But also not a Dante- Lulu marriage fan.

I loved Jason Quartermaine, myself. “The Enforcer,” not so much. One note character.

The problem with Lulu( at least for me) is that she sparks no pity ….no matter how emotional she gets, I can’t seem to respond to her ‘hurt’ feelings. Au contraire, Davy, I hurt watching her. Bad acting!!

Linda

I’m glad she’s moving on.. Everyone loves her character.
Also, can you please give Michael his baby, you dragged the stupid story line on for a year, it’s sick…and please, please, please stop talking about Oscar and wimpy weird Kim, it’s driving me nuts.. These are the story lines that everyone hates!! Trust me!!

Colin

Its time for Lulu to move on. Mark Lawson and her had awesome chemistry! If not him…someone else. Her and Chase have a certain chemistry. And…just a question? Why does everyone in Port Charles get shot in the shoulder with no damage? Do these shooters aim for the shoulder?? Jason and Sonny have been shot 27 times each, several in the shoulder. Shootings have long since lost their dramatic impact on soaps…but especially when they are shoulder wounds! And what kind of gunshot requires NO surgery whatsoever? Not even a stitch?

Satan

Actually the REAL questions here are:

1) Why would Dante – who is supposedly admitted to this high security WSB facility for PTSD & other associated mental issues – be allowed to have a gun on him while he was in treatment?

2) Since he DID have a gun, shouldn’t his aim have been better? A trained WSB agent (and former police detective) should have been able to shoot Whiny Heiny and make it count.

Celia
Celia

I hope so, Colin. I am a fan of Emme, but her emulating a grieving, shunned wife is not credible to me. I do not feel her. Too much time has gone by since Dante left—-
But, I do agree with you about Lulu and Mark….there’s something there. Mark is awesome; so the PTB should go this direction.
We need a new storyline for Lulu—without a tangible plot, I see no use for her, at this point.

Rodd

No. If Dominic isn’t coming back, the character of Lulu needs to move on. Dante was such a decent character I can only imagine it was difficult to find a way to write him out without killing him off. Still, it’s sad all the way around.

Peg

I’m so SICK of good strong couples getting ripped apart. There’s ENOUGH BAD stuff on soaps and in the world. I WISH they’d go back to how it used to be Alice and Tom Horton on days and Edward and Lila Courtermain on GENERAL HOSPITAL !!!!!!!! NOW THOSE WERE SOME GREAT LOVE STORIES IN THE AFTERNOON❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Satan

Well, to be fair, it’s not like Edward & Lila had the “ideal” marriage either. If they did, there would be no Jimmy Lee Holt, or the Ward branch of the Quartermaine family tree.

Ashley

I’m a Lante fan and I think its time for Lulu to move on. She can’t just wait forever for him to come back. I would love to see her go on a date with Dustin again. I love Lulu and I want to see her happy again. Please give Lulu the happiness she deserves.

Don’t kill Dante off bring him back at some point.

I’m really not invested in the character of Lulu like I used to be, and I think that has a lot to do with Emme Rylan’s portrayal. She’s a good actress, and was great on Y&R as Abby, but she seems miscast in this role. I would have rather seen her join the show as Serena Baldwin. Julie Berman will always be Lulu to me, and I wish she’d return.

As for the storyline, it’s a shame that Dom Z doesn’t want to return full time because writing Dante off the way they did is a huge disservice to his and Lulu’s relationship. It seems like they’re setting Lulu up to be free for a pairing with Mark Lawson’s new character, so it will be interesting to see the chemistry they have. But does GH really need another new character right now, with so many stories still in need of a resolution?

Lulu has been insignificant for quite a while…
What does she do outside of her being annoying with Maxie.. that reporter thing she has going is stupid.
She should have left with Dante, into the sunset somewhere.. that would have been a happy ending for both.

Davy

Totally agree!

Mary

Glad Dante is finally freeing himself from Lulu. He never should of been with her in the first place, he always deserved better than her. Now if Dante comes back, even as a recast0 give him a good woman to be with this time. One worthy of him.

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
