GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lulu Overboard, Kiki and Nathan Shot, Morgan Unravels, But Julexis Ties The Knot!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Julexis fans here is the good news … your favorite couple officially said their, “I do’s” thus tying the knot.

The bad news … a pissed off Dixon (Troy Ruptash) has made his way to the church just as the ceremony ended to hold everyone hostage, because a manic Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig) ruined his arms deal going through Pier 54 just minutes ago!

But it seems there are several potential casualities here.  First on the Haunted Star, Raj sees Morgan get in the way of the arms deal from the boat.   He realizes the deal has gone south. so he tosses his hostage Lulu (Emme Rylan) into the water, where she is trying not to drown.  Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is now on the boat searching for her.  While Lulu is under water, she recalls tender moments from Lante’s relationship.

Morgan after interfering with the arms deal is about to be shot by Dixon, but Kiki (Hayley Erin), who has made her way to Pier 54, happens upon the scene and is shot instead!  Carly (Laura Wright) and Michael (Chad Duell) finally end up at the pier and try to calm Morgan down, while Carly tends to Kiki’s wounds until an ambulance gets there.  But how long does it take an ambulance to show up in an emergency in Port Charles?  The young woman could be dead by now!

Back at the church, Sonny (Maurice Benard) offers Dixon a getaway car, two million dollars and more to leave everyone unharmed.  Sonny also offers himself as a hostage.  It must also be noted that Dixon called out Ava (Maura West) for working a deal with Paul (Richard Burgi) against him.  Ava denies she has anything to do with the situation. Nathan (Ryan Paevey) is also shot when trying to go into police mode inside the church.   Dixon only allows Maxie (Kirsten Storms) to tend to him while he is bleeding on the church floor.  

At the PCPD, Morgan is unglued and placde under arrest as Michael tries to ensure Morgan does not get himself into any further hot water.

So, what did you think of Lulu going overboard, Kiki and Nathan being shot, and an unhinged Morgan? Were you glad Julexis tied the knot?  What did you think of the performance of Bryan Craig throughout the episode? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

OMG yes…can some please explain why Lulu was immediately unable to swim? So dumb! Her hands were tied the whole time he had her then when he throws her overboard he unties her and now she can’t swim? so so dumb. And all those guys in the church and no one was able to over power that skinny little guy except Sonny. Terrible episode. Terrible. I know that it’s just a TV show, but it made my eyes and ears bleed. OH…and LOVE that the police just left several crates full of semi automatic weapons unattended so that Carly could… Read more »

Lol Jamie. EVERYTHING you said and more. Most cops I’ve known even off duty usually took their gun, even if they strapped it to their sock. And to make it worse, Nathan can’t even contain him from behind? And Lulu’s hands were freed, yet she waited a bit to pull the tape off her mouth. Cheesy was exactly right. How do the writers not see this. Maybe their master plan is hidden inJulian’s strategy to sink CRIMSON. Let the show fail….

I have said..
Jean and Shelly can not write high drama, they are couples writers..
GH has always been high impact drama along with its couple, but J&S will never deliver high drama..
I’d bet– Guza is laughing his azz off, ahaaa!

It was totally rushed…. not much connecting… thrown together action for Feb sweeps..
Honest… the storytelling was a mess, a big mess..
The acting was superb ..

Again; Jean and Shelly are a horrible match for GH, not the correct writers for GH..
We just witness how they write hard drana= fail …

I thought it was a FANTASTIC episode, very well written and emotional Julexis counterbalanced with the unraveling at the Pier. I thought the performances were great and the level of tension kept up throughout. And, hey, at least they tied the knot BEFORE all hell broke loose at the Church!

I agree. Even better, Jason was not everyone’s “savior.” It’s nice that they are trying to create a third reality for him – one where people can take care of themselves and aren’t so needy around him. And, since people aren’t commenting on it – I thought the wedding party looked gorgeous. There were a couple of moments I thought Olivia’s dress might be falling off because the neckline was so low. But, other than that, everyone was beautiful.

Morgan, a raging, immature idiot, disarms three armed, professional criminals? More ridiculous writing. At least the criminals turned it around and disarmed him. I’m in the middle of streaming the episode now. I guess my wish that Morgan gets dumped into the water and is never seen or heard from again doesn’t come true. I don’t like to say negative things about actors because I know they are all trying their best, but since you ask… BC is NOT up to the task of this storyline. The writers should know that and give him stuff he can do well. He’s… Read more »

Hey, Melissa,
As yourself, Timmm has also said Craig was not equipped enough to take this role.

Hi Melissa…It’s interesting how we all see different things. As I’ve mentioned I’m very immersed in this character and I think BC is doing a phenomenal job! And though I agree with you about his good looks and appeal, I actually think he excels in the dark, emotional scenes.

Yes, the clear split in opinion is really interesting. I guess we can all agree the character of Morgan, and how BC plays him, is a polarizing topic!

Opps, not Kiki–I meant Nina. I like Kiki now. Did anyone notice how Roger just blossomed while in scenes with Maura West? Finally we saw just how good Roger and Maura can be. I am thinking Stafford just doesn’t do it for Roger as he seems to phone it in with her. Maura West is a really good actress but since she came onto GH she has been forced to play a lip twitching, campy, cartoon character. Maybe they can make both Franco and Ava human again. However, considering this require back pedaling and damage control writing, I am rather… Read more »

I think all of us had an idea that what went down, actually did go down, albeit many of us hoped that the oversexed lovebirds’ wedding would go awry.
My question is: why is Carly so surprised Sonny lied to her? Really? How about once bitten ….and so on and so forth?
Please no more moments with Julian and Alexis….these two having an ordinary, adult conversation does not register or compute. I can only picture them in another, usual setting.

Shay
Guest

Ah, yes, CeeCeeGirl….Our great hopes were dashed when the wedding actually went down, eh? It would have been so much better and more dramatic if one or both of the bridal couple had been shot…..especially if it put (at the least) a temporary kibosh on the endless rounds of rutting that we just know are on the agenda for this sexually-obsessed twosome.

Carly, suddenly acting like the protective mother just rang false for me. Does she forget that Sonny accidentally shot her in the head as she gave birth to Morgan? Or that Michael was shot in his father’s coffee warehouse by his father’s enemies? Or that Sonny murdered Michael’s REAL father in cold blood and then later screwed Morgan’s girl friend on top of his not yet cold body in the Quatermaine crypt? The list goes on and on. Moreover, Carly had an affair with the man who orchestrated her son’s prison rape and would have married him had he not… Read more »

Updated from an earlier post: I think that Morgan should be sent to a psychiatric facility because his character serves no legitimate purpose on the canvas. He is entitled, spoiled, and does not contribute anything to his family, friends, or society. He is the worst combination of his parents and he needs to be sent away, off-screen, to find a purpose-schooling, a job, perhaps? The acting makes me cringe. The only time that I began to like the character was when he wanted to care for Avery. I thought that Bryan had begun to learn more of the craft and… Read more »

I think Laura Wright did an outstanding job in today’s episode. I think Finola and Richard were great also. I’ll be glad when the “manic Morgan” story calms down. That story seems to have served its purpose. The kid hit his rock bottom, lives were changed forever, the big sting operation has gone down…time to move on now and I’m assuming the actor who portrays Morgan will be happy for a change and a new challenge. I imagine it takes a lot out of him emotionally and physically to keep up with the “manic Morgan” character also. He’s probably ready… Read more »

Although I know opinion is divided I think Bryan Craig is doing an amazing job in this story line. I liked nearly everything about this episode. The highlight was Roger Howarth as Franco and the lowlight was the bad guy tossing Lullu in the water without binding her limbs as if the tape over her mouth could prevent her from swimming. Otherwise, no complaints and loads of praise. Long live GH!

Dan

Agree 100%. I think Bryan Craig is unfairly criticized by a lot of people. I personally think he’s done a great job since he’s been on the show, and especially during the bi-polar storyline. Wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some Emmy gold in his future.

I actually liked the episode a lot! High stakes, lots of drama and intensity, and great acting all around. Morgan’s unraveling and bipolar disorder is a compelling story, and Bryan Craig is playing it to the hilt. Julexis finally getting married was a plus, and luckily neither one of them was harmed. And to be honest, I couldn’t care less if either Kiki or Nathan die. Heck, kill them both off! Bad actors, useless characters.

That Nathan, he’s a whip!

This was the best episode in MONTHS. Commenters here always want romance, veterans, tight writing. These episodes had all of that: Romance– Alexis & Julian’s wedding. Veterans: Carly, Sonny, and yes, Morgan, the troubled Corinthos. Lucas, a legacy character — his storyline advanced. Two new Doctors — so, more hospital characters & stories.

I must admit,I was skeptical about the new writers, but they’re exceeding my expectations.

ok, so for me this dixon character is by far the worst villain GH has ever had, i don’t know the actor, but badly cast and his goons were so pathetic too, of course morgan takes the cake as most annoying character on the show, and carly whom i’m usually critical of, was tolerable till she started throwing the weapon in the water, it was a wtf moment for sure. the hostage situation was not bad, although sam trying to pass herself as sonny’s daughter was funny as hell, i couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Franco was a riot… Read more »

Super cheap wedding, btw. GH couldn’t even be bothered to hire a few extras to fill up the church. Pathetic.

I think that the writers could’ve came across more real. Like for at the church. Everyone heard the guy that was holding a gun on them stste that Ava was,the reason he was there. Yet again was she arrested????

Then Amna also knowing that the D.A. wasn’t as clean as he acts. This could’ve been written a little better than how it was.

Will we see anyone orher than who they’ve arrested for this crime.. Like Ava????

I’ve seen aliens, vampires and resurrections and said “Well, its a Soap!” Wednesday when the cartel crumbled and Carly goes back to pier 54 to vent about Sonny was the WORST scene I ever have seen on a soap! Why? The cartel is hauled off to jail, Sonny takes down Dixon and all you see in Carly’s scene is some crime tape and crates of high powered rifles that have not been confiscated nor are they being guarded! WHAT! So the ATF makes a major bust and the guns are left there so Carly can start lobbing them in the… Read more »

Right? I cannot believe those weapons were just left there. Seriously? The cops just up and left? How is this episode one of the best? What a whirlwind of an episode….weird beginning….weirder end.

Hi Timmm… The one and only thing that saved that written mess was the terrific acting, by all.. If I were to ‘read’ that story/script I would have been closing the book.. It was a mess… The head of cartel in a church at a wedding waving a gun around looking like a total idiot not having a plan and putting himself among both Sonny and Julian, well it was total stupid writing.. Also- A shipment of guns on a dock that were not protected, not guarded, just left for the taking, was very bad writing. The outing of Sonny… Read more »

Su00—you are actually almost sounding sane here. I have never liked Ava. but always knew Maura West was an incredible talent. The problem is that they nabbed Maura West and then they put the cart before the horse. Hence, they put the actor before the actor and poor Maura was relegated to playing a comic book villain for whom no one could have any empathy. Today and yesterday Maura West showed us doubters just how good she can be. She is truly a gifted actress and now get what all the fuss is about. Moreover. Roger Howarth seems to thrive… Read more »

The acting was good but like someone said, the who story was based on the shipment and some azzhole could have lifted any of those guns and started shooting up a movie theater! DUMB! AND, the Haunted Star is docked, how close was Lulu to swimming to the dock or in hearing distance of DUMBNTE! DUMB II!

Tuesday show…. Best episode of the year. We had a little bit of everything with action, drama, humor, romance, surprises, and three legit cliffhangers. Roger Howarth is one amazing actor. I was on the edge of my seat with the drama and then busted out laughing when Franco acted offended when Dixon stopped the intros when it was his turn. The most hilarious part of the whole thing was when Ava said to Franco why don’t you volunteer yourself to be a hostage and he said back to her that’s a terrible idea cause nobody would care if he got… Read more »

Wednesday show…. Another great episode. GH is on fire this week. I loved the part when a worried Nina finally just said “The hell with it” and headed straight for her brother Nathan. This proves to me that Nina is a stronger woman now cause if this happened a year ago she would’ve locked up in fear. I saw some of the Nico magic when Nina and Franco were at the hospital. Paul was such an unlikeable unsympathetic jerk for the whole hour and I loved it when Ava slapped the crap out of him in the face. He is… Read more »

It was one of the best episodes I have seen in a long time! Had me at the edge of my seat until the end~ I really like where the story lines are going already this year. I have watched since the days of Monica pushing Leslie sown the stairs…and Jesse at the front nurses desk~ Keep up the great work!

So funny how split we are as others have mentioned. Why do some love it and others hate it? I’m in the latter camp. Watching Thursdays’ episode now and am FF through all the Morgan scenes. Just dreadful writing. They have killed a character who, if written the right way, could be likeable.

@Melissa….It would seem to me that our perspectives often—though not always— seem to part ways according to when we first became GH fans. Those of us who grew up watching the show during the 1980’s glory days— and even into the early ’90’s—appear to be the most disappointed, whilst viewers of those first years of Sonny still harbor an abiding affection for the character, and have much less of a problem with his role as the presumptive head of today’s kith and kin of Port Charles’ mob-ruled society. It’s the emphasis on this nearly all Sonny, et al, all the… Read more »

To Shay. Yes like you I am more of an old-timely viewer, having watched GH with my Mom since the age of six (1969). So I do know what GH without the mob looks like and therefore what it can be again. Thanks for your very thought provoking comments.

@Melissa….Oh, you’re most welcome! You are obviously one viewer to whom I needn’t explain my distaste for today’s mob-drenched GH…..you were “there” when the show really was all about a hospital! Admittedly, my treasured memories date to when the spy stuff, pop musicians and men of derring-do were introduced, along with the great dynasties that are merely hanging on for dear life these days, but I suspect we both would like to see less Sonny-centric stories and more romance, “in general.” (No pun intended…..)

Hey, Linda.
I actually enjoyed today’s episode. There were too many ‘things’ that just did not add up….at the pier and at the Church.
The roof-top scene got to me. Later.

Personally, I’ve loved the episodes this week. Good drama, action, emotion, great acting as usual from the best ensemble cast on daytime. Laura Wright, Maurice Benard, Maura West, Richard Burgi, Finola Hughes, Bryan Craig, Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Ryan Paevey, Haley Erin, Dominic Zamprogna, right on down the line, all tremendous performances. These shows have had a little of everything we say that we want from our soaps. I’m honestly surprised to see so many comments from people hating the show. But then again, on this site, maybe I shouldn’t be that surprised. There are some that post here that… Read more »

Why do writers who make a show for a predominantly female audience think it’s OK to portray women as idiots? Morgan, admitted into the hospital for mental illness, charms a nurse into releasing him from his bonds? No nurse in the world would have fallen for that. Women actually have the brain power to be professionals. Thanks GH for the insult. Go ahead and keep biting the hand that feeds you. Do the writers even want the show to survive, or do they figure they can just jump back to Y&R or some other soap (until they are all gone)?

CeeCee

That’s what I said about the nurse, sort of. Women are presented and represented as idiots and floozies.
No one even took action against the nurse. No reprimands….she should be fired, considering where her negligence led Morgan.

just when you think this show couldn’t get any worse. We get February sweeps. maybe we could get lucky and a tornado could sweep in and sweep the show away. Scummy’s the hero, Anna is bad, or maybe just dumb. Paul who brought the guns in is an undercover hero ? Law enforcement is either stupid, keystone cops or just incompetent.???I was at the gym so I didn’t really hear most of the words but, I certainly don’t want to now.? are TIIC trying to get the show cancelled.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.

There is no official word on Genie’s first airdate bsck, but stay tuned, as November is just around the corner.

Back on October 7th, Genie posted a photo of herself sharing: “Bye bye New England! So happy to have had a bit of fall!”  Thus, signaling she was headed back to the west coast to re-join GH.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
