GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lulu Lets Britt Have It For The Cover-up Of Baby Ben! What Did You Think Of Her Speech?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

This past week on General Hospital finally everyone learned that baby Ben is actually Lulu (Emme Rylan) and Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna)  son, not Dante and Britt’s (Kelly Thiebaud)!

After the cover-up is revealed of Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), Britt and Brad’s (Parry Shen) conspiracy to steal Dante and Lulu’s embryos so Britt could get pregnant and then pass off her baby as Patrick’s (Jason Thompson), lives are torn apart.  And now, Dr. O has kidnapped baby Ben, and has Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Ben held hostage!

But on Friday’s episode, the time finally came for Lulu to go off the rails and let Britt have it for her entire plot, and the pain and suffering she caused her and Dante.  While in the interrogation room at the PCPD after Lulu interrupts Dante trying to get Britt to talk to her mother so he can trace where  Obrecht is with their son, Lulu has these choice words to say to Britt!

Lulu begins telling off Britt:  “You hurt me, and you hurt Dante, and you hurt our son.  You stole him from us.  How you could do that?  You’re a doctor. You’re an OB/GYN.  You are supposed to help people have babies, not take them. You promised, no, you took an oath as a doctor to help me. You violated me, and you violated my husband. Those two embryos were our last hope of ever having a child.” 

Next when Britt tries to say that when she got pregnant, there was no way of her knowing that Lulu couldn’t produce more eggs, Lulu continued: “And when you knew, you sat there in your office and you told me that there was no hope. That Dante and I would never have a child.  But you knew that Ben was sitting in a crib at Wyndemere… OUR SON!  And you did nothing!  You did not care who you hurt as long as you got exactly what you wanted. What kind of person are you?  Just don’t pretend that you are sorry.  You planned this.  You covered it up, and you had no intention of returning our son to us.  In fact, if Elizabeth had not found that letter, you would be snuggled up with Ben right now.

I read your letter, and I know the reasons you did what you did, and I don’t care. They were selfish. They were delusional. They were evil. And yet you’re not sick, you’re not a sociopath, and you get it, Britt.  I get why you did it.  And that makes what you have done so much more terrifying, and I promise you, I am going to make sure you pay for what you have done to me.  I dare you to say again that you didn’t mean for any of this to happen like that is an excuse … like that makes a damn bit of difference!”

So, what did you think of Lulu’s speech to Britt?  Do you think everything that should have been said has been said to Britt?  Will Britt and Dr. O ultimately not pay for their crimes?  Weigh-in below!

I loved her speech and she was right on. However, I do not think that anyone will pay for this crime. It is the way GH works. They’re not getting rid of Obrecht or Brit (unless the actors are leaving). Is there a custody battle in the works?

I don’t think there can be a custody battle for a child you stole– but Lulu and Dante could sue Britt— I mean at very least they could get her for malpractice

It was about time Lulu got to say something to Britt. I only wish it would have lasted a bit longer, and Dante hadn’t pulled Lulu back. Britt deserves more than what she got from Lulu.

Lulu so soon forgets her past: she got herself pregnant by stepbrother Dillion when he was married to Georgie. Nice now but she is still not much better than Britt!!!

Well to be fair what Lulu did may be immoral but not illegal, what Britt did was illegal and did violate her oath as a doctor which should at the very least get her medical license revoked. As you said in a different post elsewhere, it is okay to have immoral characters who do shady things, but having so many do criminal acts and no one ever goes to jail- or pays the consequences it gets unrealistic. Even if the bad guy dies, eventually another writer will bring them back from the beyond. I guess that is the price we… Read more »

Your right about the illegal part and i wish they’d stop making Britt and Dr.O do criminal acts that go unpunished…they can be villians without the illegal stuff…i miss villains like Rachel Davis and Lisa Hughes but i guess they cant write those kind anymore!!!

Hey jimh…I think we can give Lulu a pass…she was practically a child then…Brit is an adult AND a doctor! In my opinion…no comparison.

Jasmine pointed out(below) something i almost forgot: Lulu took Maxi to court and lied on the stand, and attempted to run off with Maxis baby in an attempt to keep baby Connie/Georgie so she really isnt much better than Britt!!!

Brenda
Guest

Correction: Lulu CONSIDERED running off with Connie/Georgie as any other person would have done in the same situation. In the end she didn’t do it, but let’s not forget that Maxie lied to Lulu and Dante for months, letting them think the baby was theirs when she knew she had miscarried. How is what Lulu did worse than that? Everyone keeps forgetting the role Maxie played in that situation–even Spinelli didn’t know until the day of the christening when Brad spilled the beans.

I ike Britt, since she has been with Nickolas. I donot want Liz with Nickolas, and I was fond of Nickolas and Emily. I really like him with Britt. Like he has a REAL woman.
Lulu’s speech was good. I even re-inacted it, OUT LOUD, from the words above, since I didn’t see it on Friday. And I must say, I didn’t sound bad. LOL

I know what Britt. and her mother did was horrible but at the same time, they saved Lulu and Dante. from having to go thru the long draining process of finding a surrogate and the worry if the procedure will succeed. I know Britt. had no intentions of telling them the truth but the fact is they have a child thanks to emotionally damage Britt. and her Doctor Frankenstein mother.

You have a screwed perspective of looking at this. Seriously? If I would engage a surrogate to carry my child, I would want to be a part of the gestation process every step of the way. If this were real life, Britt and her mother would not have stood a chance in the medical field, ethiCally, morally and professionally. Do not fall victim to the writers of soaps. They want the viewer to forgive the most beastly behaviour to suit their purpose. None of these characters has a spic and span past. Just saying.

If she hasn’t paid for her crimes by now, the PTB at GH won’t make her pay now. Even if she is punished for 5 minutes it won’t stick. The writers are delusional. You have to plan.If my characters do x then y will happen. At GH they do not. They also rewrite history. I don’t think that is good writing. Though obrecht is funny at times, making her the head of GH makes no more sense than making Mickey Mouse or Mr. Ed head of GH. If think a little comedy is good, like when Luke and Tracey were… Read more »

I don’t know why but Lulu reminds me of those little lap dogs that can bark and bark, but you don’t really feel threaten by them. She makes a lot of noise, but honestly what is she going to do to Britt? On the other hand you got someone like Dr. O who just has to look at you and your blood runs cold. As for the speech, it felt more like a recap of the plot for those just tuning in than an honest emotional response from the character—- but that’s just my view on it. The better story… Read more »

I do have a general comment regarding the writing. I think it’s sort of in keeping with Brit’s sense of right and wrong given her psycho upbringing that she would use excuses like, “I thought I could give you another one,” or “I thought you would have Maxie’s baby and raise her as your own…” but it makes no sense to answer those remarks other than with a “SO WHAT?!!!!” It wouldn’t matter if they had one other baby, ten other babies, biological babies, adopted babies or cabbage patch babies!!!!! BEN IS THEIR CHILD!!!! That’s all that matters. There is… Read more »

Thank you ! Thank you! I wanted to scream just that at the TV. So what if they could have another? NO ONE has a right to STEAL someone’s child. Like Dante told Maxie when he found out Connie wasn’t theirs and she was going to substitute her for the child they lost-You can’t play GOD! Child are not interchangeable. I laugh at people who think that Lante should thank Britt for carrying their child, Ha Ha. Thank the person who let them babysit for their own child? The person who would have kept their child from them for his… Read more »

Janeway: Nice to find a like-minded viewer on something you would think EVERYONE would naturally agree on. It just seems so insane to rationalize why it might be one iota acceptable or excusable to steal someone else’s child…and to actually come up with 100 plus reasons why it’s not okay instead of just shouting…YOU STOLE OUR BABY!!!! And the laughable yet frustrating thing is that the conversation was repeated in several different ways/days…

Lulu was no insecure teenager when she took Maxi to court and lied…or when she tried to run off with Maxi’s child even when she knew the baby was Maxi and Spins…even if she was a teenager and all she still knew it was wrong to sleep with her married stepbrother…but i agree what Britt had done is far more criminal…however, knowing the writing of this show she’ll probably do no time for it…jmo!!!

rebecca1

jimh… the situation with Maxi and Lulu is totally different than Britt and Lulu. Britt STOLE Lante’s embryos. STOLE. She impregnated herself with another woman (and man)’s child. She went to her lab, took THEIR EGGS/SPERM/EMBRYO…mix n’ match as you will…and placed it in her own body. First…to deceive Patrick. So right off the bat she’s stolen another couple’s child…and has another man believing she’s having HIS child. After she reached some semblance of normalcy…and had opportunities to attempt to make it right…which could never really be made right…she perpetuated the lie. As Janeway said…she was basically “allowing” Lulu to… Read more »

Lulu was right on. But if memory serves me right, wasn’t she trying to steal Maxi’s baby when she knew it wasn’t her baby? Didn’t she take Maxi to court and lie on the stand too? She is no better than Britt.

You have a good point, Jasmine, as did Jimh (leave it to beaver). I can’t stand Lulu (or Dante)—they’re so self-important and full of themselves and only see their point of view with anything. The Lulu character was so mean to Maxie when she found out the truth there–unredeemable after that. While Lulu had every right to be mad at Britt, she ought to be thankful that Britt essentially served as her surrogate and gave her a baby. I’ve really enjoyed the Britt and Dr. O characters the last year and hope there’s a lot more of their shenanigans to… Read more »

So true, Charday!!!! I LOVE Dr. O. and the huge reveal that she was Britt’s “mutta” was one of the best on GH in years. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed their up and down mother-daughter relationship and all the capers that ensued because of it. Definitely never a dull moment with those two….I am looking forward to more fun escapades from them! As for Lulu and Dante, you really nailed their basic attitude and behavior, too. I’m so tired of their unending melodrama……….particularly Lulu’s crazed, over-the-top obsession with babies.

Lulu had every right to say what she did to Britt. Lulu has made mistakes, but she has owned up to them and moved forward to make herself a better person. Britt, on the other hand, continues to only think of herself. She is evil and won’t change. Hopefully, we will see Lulu do what she says and make Britt pay, but I do not think it will happen because it doesn’t look like Britt or her evil monster mother are leaving. So for what it was worth, Lulu was at least able to scream at Britt and vent her… Read more »

Like I said before Lulu has every right to do whatever she is capable of whether physically or verbally ,to give Britt what’s she deserves, but watching the two actresses it’s like seeing David (Lulu) and Goliath -(Guess) Lulu is like the mouse that roared with a strong Kelly Thiebaud/Brit towering over her. Emme/Lulu is a much more petite woman in comparison with a seemingly bigger-boned and broad-shouldered Kelly (Brit who at 5’9″ appears taller than TB ( 5’10” and he has to look up into her face)It’s almost like watching the mismatched pair of Tom Cruise and Kelly ‎McGillis… Read more »

Bravo to the writers & Bravo to Emme Rylan! Lulu was spot on about everything! It was about time Lulu had her say. Nik stole the show at the party expressing his hurt and anger at Britt for betraying his trust and breaking his heart. Dante expressed his anger and pain to the woman who had caused so much pain to him and the woman that he loved, and who not only stole their child but almost ruined their marriage as well. Lulu hit the nail directly on the head when she said that Britt VIOLATED her and her husband.… Read more »

Thank you Janeway. Perfectly said. Britt VIOLATED both Dante and Lulu. If all had not been revealed, Britt would have continued the deception, playing the kind and caring mother and ALLOWING Lulu to spend time with her own son. Oh, but Britt felt so guilty. BUNK. Not enough to tell the truth. Not enough to see Lulu suffering every day and yet continue to lie. I won’t deny that she loves that child now, but it didn’t start out that way. She didn’t care at all about the baby. It was a means to an end. I find it amazing… Read more »

Honestly, I just want this ridiculous storyline to be wrapped up. I shook my head as Dr. O. walked out of Nik’s bedroom with the baby, back to Dante and Lulu. That would have been the perfect opportunity for them to pull the woman by her hair, since her back was turned to them. Or at least trip her, and grab the baby!

It was a great speech delivered by a subpar actor, unfortunately…but the words will not be reflected in the story. Britt’s character will not pay for this brutality. She will be redeemed in some way so they can keep the character on the canvas.

IA with what Lulu said. However, her delivery was off. She should have slapped her at the party and then with a lawsuit! the next day and the hospital. GH is as much to blame because they hired her. Lulu should seek monetary damages from Maxie (either Dante added Maxie on his insurance as a dependent unless she got Medicaid-which I doubt, or either paid out of pocket for everything because of the funds given to him as a gift from Sonny) and the hospital, and criminal negligence from Britt!

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

Photo:ABC

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Photo: JPI

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
