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

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

Looks like all the good actors are switching over to General Hospital Hm! maybe I should switch. I wonder if Adam from Y & R might soon be found over there and the old Billy

I also loved her playing Abby in the Y & R. Maybe a time for a change I use to watch GH years ago now that my favourite ones are showing up in GH.

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 soap opera viewers have to pay for stories that are continuing— sometimes I think telenovels like they have in Mexico are better for that, because once the story arc ends, it ends– and a new telenovel starts with different characters and story begins. In that form the criminals can face justice because you don’t need next week like our soaps do.

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
Brenda

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.

FAS

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 comical, but this is downright stupid. if it were a sit com, it would still be stupid to have Obrecht heading GH but a comedy is a comedy. I do not think the writer(s) are doing a good job. Though finally there are some scenes (having to do with this story) that have good writing. But after too long.

You are spot on!!!!!!

Mary SF

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 would have been Britt coming clean on her own– to see her growth rather than have her just standing there like a child who was caught doing something bad and getting a verbal spanking for it–

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 no excuse…it wouldn’t matter if they had others…THAT’S the main retort that should be thrown in Brit’s face. SHE KIDNAPPED THEIR BABY. Operative word…THEIR baby.

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 entire life if they could have gotten away with it.

I also think that it ridiculous to compare Britt wanting to hold on to the child she STOLE and Lulu wanting to keep the child she was GIVEN and told was HERS.

And the best are those that think Lulu deserves to lose the baby that she created with her loving husband, because as an immature, insecure teenager she slept with the boy she had a crush on (& broke up his marriage) and had an abortion because she was not ready to be a mother. The irony of this situation is that Lulu has been very sorry for the pain that she caused and made peace with the people she wronged. The potential grandmother, Tracy has been one of her greatest supporters and does not blame Lulu .

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…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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
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 babysit…or even hold…her OWN child! It was so beyond outrageous…so beyond wrong and nutz!

I don’t see a comparison with the Maxi/Lulu thing. That was good intentions gone wrong. Maxi loves Lulu…she waned to do a selfless act…she sacrficed all the way thru. First, in carrying their child..then…giving her own child to them so as not to hurt/disappoint them. When she realized she couldn’t go through with it…she gently tried to reason…she was devastated at the fallout.

Lulu…understandably was grief-stricken. She believed this was her biological daughter. She loved this child from the time Maxie carried it to the time she held her in her own arms…brought her home…bonded. There was of course confusion, hurt, betrayal, loss…it was just an emotional devastation from all sides.

I didn’t particularly like Lulu through this SL only because while I realize everything I just wrote above in this twisted tale…I still thought she should have caught Maxie some slack and appreciated her misguided friendship…since Maxie did what she did out of love. But the point is Lulu was fighting for what she was led to believe was her daughter…one she’d bonded with and come to love.

Britt came to love a child she STOLE…a baby literally stolen in its embryonic state….soooo different a situation.

Sigh. I’m exhauseted! 😉

Jasmine

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.

Charday
Charday

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 come.

Shay

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 feelings.

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 in Top Gun- So I hope something is written for Emme/Lulu where she gets to posture herself to appear larger than life so that the dastardly duo of Mutter and Dutter can’t help but cower in the wake of Lulu’s wrath. For me, no matter what kind of spin is being put on this convoluted baby-napping in order to gain sympathy for these two (three actually including Brad) villains du jour, redemption has left the building and left them in the dust of it’s gonna be time to pay.

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. No matter what kind of crazy mother Britt had, she is a doctor, she took an Oath. She is supposed to help people have babies. She had access to their genetic material. She is supposed to be a trusted professional. Doctors aren’t supposed to steal patients embryos and keep their babies. Especially after Britt realized that Ben was the only child that Lulu would ever have and had a ringside seat to the torment Lulu felt when she thought Dante had a a child with Britt. It was beyond cruel it was selfishness to the utmost.

Also loved tiny Lulu going after Britt, and Dante having to pull Lulu off her. He couldn’t exactly let his wife attack a prisoner in the police station as much as he would have liked too. LOL

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 that some say Britt did them a favor. She gave them a baby. They didn’t have to find a surrogate. I guess what those people are saying is any “incubator” will do. Sorry, I don’t feel that way. Thankfully, the truth is out and hopefully Britt will suffer. I don’t care if she doesn’t go to prison, but I want her to see the disgust on peoples faces and in their eyes every time anyone looks at her. I want Dante and Lulu to change that little boys name and even take that away from Britt. I want her left with NOTHING.

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!
