GENERAL HOSPITAL: Maura West Delivers Masterful Performance As Ava Is Busted By Sonny and Carly!

Courtesy/ABC

When the big moments are set to reveal the long-awaited pay-off and the emotional stakes are high, if you are an executive producer, you want Maura West (Ava Jerome, GH) on your show, and your team.

This three-time Daytime Emmy winning and most accomplished actress throughout her daytime drama career has delivered these moments time and time again. Each a gift to the fans and the audience who invest in the characters she has played.

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Ava Jerome had to face the music, and the verbal and emotional onslaught of grieving parents, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) for her part in the demise of Morgan Corinthos. These scenes gave West a platform to showcase Ava’s guilt, self-loathing, and conniving as she is finally busted!

It all went down when Sonny and Carly confront Ava in the Jerome art warehouse. They accuse her of having tampered with Morgan meds to keep him away from Kiki (Hayley Erin).  Ava says she was protecting her children. After continually coming at Ava armed with the truth of her misdeeds, Ava breaks and admits she switched Morgan’s pills.

Then in heartfelt moments played by Laura Wright and Maurice Benard, Carly and Sonny come at Ava with how she stole Morgan’s victory from him after he returned home from being put away. They quote entries from his diary to Ava to drive that point home.  Caught and in tears, Ava says she’s grieved too for Morgan, she cared deeply for him, and that he wasn’t supposed to die. Sonny says Avery will be crushed when she learns what a monster her mother is, since Avery loved spending time with her big brother.

Carly is over Ava trying to play the victim, or for them to feel sorry for her.  She tries to pull Ava into a fight, in which Ava almost participated in, but instead she smashes the lantern she has lit and it explodes into fire as Carly is propelled backward and hits the ground. Did Ava get away?  We will have to tune in next week to find out.

On-Air On-Soaps for one, was looking forward to seeing this moment play out on-screen and it did not disappoint.  It was fascinating to watch in the hands of Maura West.

So, what did you think of the showdown scenes between Ava and Sonny and Carly?  What did you think of the performances of Maura West, Laura Wright and Maurice Benard? Share your thoughts in the comment section below

Ava/Maura is awesome! Ava is a great character.. Maura a phenomenal actress. GH is very fortunate to have Maura. I hope Ava bitchslapps Carly and ehh even stomps her.. carly has been annoying like fingernails down a chalkboard. Ava needs to stifle her .. I want Ava and Sonny as a couple- always have and will. Carly and Sonny are so has-been, been there done that 200000000 times repetitive couple. nuff of Carly and Sonny they bore the bejesus outta me! they are the same old love gone problems for decades, nuff of them!

Hi Patrick ..
Ava tops the whiny bitchy loud mouth that never has silence Carly.
Carly has become an irritating bitch and not a tough bitch she’s a hag.

Ava and Sonny were hot in the crypt and they would make for a great couple under new actual drama writers.
Carly and Sonny (in past years) don’t even hot kiss they are sexual duds together. …
They are like brawling roommates- roommates from hell .. never romantic or sexual, just roommates.

hi Phil ..
yes, GH has a great cast, but- they are given horrible material blahhh..
Sonny and Carly’s time should end. that couple is worn and torn and needs to be gone. They are same old crap for decades- been there done that 2000000 times with them, never changing.

Sonny and Ava would be something NEW and whole lot of new is desperately needed.

Laura is great also. Perhaps its style that I prefer Maura.

Sonny and Carly are so boring, The rinse and repeat cycle became boring 5 times ago. Plus, these two have zero chemistry.
Most viewers could GAS about Sonny and Carly. These two are dragging down the show and the ratings. Time to let them go.

The writers J&S are so inept!

Ava is being taken down for messing with Morgan’s pills.
remember;
Kiki and Morgan messed with Michael’s pills ..
Carly and Sonny have selected memory.

GH needed new better and improved writers yesterday !
Jean and Shelly are the wrong type writers for GH, totally wrong.

Yes, yes, yes, su…..from day one, I said Maura killed every scene when I first saw her on GH. I was familiar with her work from Y&R, who did not realize what a wonder the show lost by killing off Diane/ Maura. No, no, no, su….Sex in the crypt was perverse, depraved and sick. Schifoso!!!!!! At the risk of sounding like a prude ( and I don’t care), I suppose it all hinges on one’s perspective, interpretation and moral code, with a dash of one’s faith.

hi Celia ..
I liked the crypt sex it was widely nasty! lol
Ava and Sonny were not making love they were pure urge and that was awesome.
It was exactly how it should’ve been with them, dirty and spontaneously wild.

Ava and Sonny would be an intense couple, never boring and I think they are perfect for eachother..
Married mobster,s how exciting. The merging of the Jerome and Corinthos families !

At the least they would have great sex understand each other LOL ..

Ahhh, su, su, su,
I am all for hot, wild sex ( albeit, not just with anybody), but, I do believe you’ve missed my point.
It wasn’t the sex, it was the LOCATION.
As far as the intensity of their animalistic rutting, su? They are two peas in a pod. The intendity had nothing to do with passion, but all to do with an angry need—Tom-cat and kitty in an alley of Anytown, USA.

Oh, you are too funny, CeeCee!!! And also spot on!!! I tried to expound upon your own disgust for the notion of revisiting the circumstances of that heinous crypt tryst and its highly inappropriate location via a Sonny-Ava reunion, but alas, it failed to make post. Needless to say, I wholly support your point of view about this most unholy alliance that took place in the holiest of places….it’s a memory best “laid to rest”—no pun intended—and forgotten! As for Ava, I think her next sexual foray should see her being “serviced by Curtis.” That would make for a truly… Read more »

Wow another amazing performance by Maura West! It’s just my opinion so don’t get mad, but Laura Wright and Maurice Bernard are not even in the same league as her . As for the storyline and being a long time viewer of GH the hypocrisy of Carly and Sonny baffles me, they are no better than Ava & Sonny has does worse & and thank God Ava stood up to Carly who I can’t stand.

I agree. Laura and Mauice are good (Maurice phoning it in from time to time – and Laura always good). But Maura is in another league.

Would actually like to see Ava and Sonny as a couple (unless Nick Stabile returns as Nikolas – they had great chemistry!)

Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) is another true talent. Like Valentin and Nina together
.
I also wish they would give Roger Howarth better material. He’s done all he can with Franco. He needs something else. Hmm, maybe some type of story with Maura and Roger.

nancy dillingham

nancy dillingham

In these particular scenes, I thought Laura Wright was quietly effectively and her heartbreak came through as real. Maura, as I said in an earlier post, was over the top with her screeching and screaming.
Yes, the writers did literally wear this storyline out as they are wont to do. Drains the audience and tests their patience; as a result, the s/l loses any affect it may have had.
Said the same about the Nurses’ Ball–much too choppy to have any real impact.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Laura Wright is a really good actress. But honestly? I could care less about Carly’s “heartbreak.” She barely batted an eye when Monica lost her son…AJ…who both she and Sonny tortured for years and finally killed…one doing the deed, the other keeping silent. I just want Ava to bring Carly downnnnnnn…

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

On another note, Nancy, I agree with you about Maura’s screaming. Waaay too over the top. Reminds me of Florencia Lozana (Tea, OLTL). Both very good actresses but in my opinion need to tone down their portrayal of angst, anger, etc. If they want to convey hysteria they’ve nailed it! 😉

dmr
Guest
dmr

Nancy, I agree, the Nurse’s Ball was too “choppy” due to the constant interruptions of what TPTB consider to be drama and good story-telling.
Rebecca1, BOY, do I agree with you about Carly and what she did to AJ back in the day. Although, I only apply my sympathies to Sean Kanan as AJ. I deeply disliked Billy Warlock as AJ.

Not many actors are in the same league as Maura. She is an amazing actress. Comedic gold when paired with Kin Shriner.

KansasGuest

Agree completely. I’ve never seen Sonny or Carly be remotely comedic about anything. The characters take themselves way too seriously for that. Ava is given a wider range of emotions to play with. Since Maura West can really do it all, GH is very lucky to have her. I just wish she wasn’t stuck interacting with the Corinthos clan, who are a humorless bunch at best.

Remy

Maura West THANK YOU! This is what was needed another “lackluster” nurse’s ball. Still wish the show would explore the Nicholas/Ava relationship, rather it be Tyler or Mr. Stable in the role. Ava roaming around Sonny/Carly orbit is old and tired, either Carly and Ava are going to fight and give us a classic bitch battle or just continue to bait each other. Outside of this plot point, lets get a true Ava Jerome Story with Maura front and center instead of supporting a mob story that is really a sob story. If it can work for Jason, im sure… Read more »

Except for Valentin’s song which was very well sung, and very moving…And the brief appearance of Robin, the Nurses’s Ball was a dud. Kiki and Dillon’s dance/song was brutal (sorry, David Bowie!)

The character of Ava can’t be redeemed; thus, she merits no empathy nor sympathy from me as the audience. True of a lot of characters in these “new” approches to soaps. More’s the pity.

Remy
Guest
Remy

Well Sonny and Carly have been redeemed plenty of times, why not Ava?

Maura rose to the occasion and didn’t disappoint. She stole the whole scene, making Carly and Sonny grief understandable but kind of a “here we go again moment”.

Moving forward, hope we will receive an Ava Jerome storyline instead of Ava supporting a storyline.

I don’t agree. Ava switched pills.Sonny takes a gun and shoots AJ dead, in cold blood. Then if that wasn’t enough he goes to the hospital room where aj is dieing and threatens him. Carley did push alcoholic AJ pouring drimks over him, etc.All the things she did. Ava can’t be redeemed ???? She switched some pills. Morgan stole the car.if he wasn’t like Sonny he would still be alive. I don’t even like Ava, but fighting with those two calling her names, names of things they have both done worse. What a joke.General gangsters can’t be redeemed. At least… Read more »

Amen to that notion, Nancy! I find it impossible to emotionally invest in the shallow, soulless and quite frankly, despicable, characters that GH has rolled out with regularity over the past few years. Save for the few remaining legacy players that we’ve known and loved for eons, I simply don’t give a fig about what happens to most of these “people.”

Steve
Guest

@janet

No question, MW is an outstanding actress.

Sonny will never be redeemed in many of our eyes. Ava not only switched the Morgan’s pills which caused his downward spiral, she murdered Connie in cold blood and led everyone to think AJ did it. This led to Sonny shooting AJ in Ava’s apartment mostly due to her deception. And, she’s never paid for the car accident that caused Jason’s facial reconstruction.

As good as Maura West is, Ava is just a bad person

Boop
Guest
Boop

Sonny’s character can’t be redeemed either; however, he still has the police dept. in his pocket and is able to take matters into his own hands without any consequences. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander! ( a true saying)
Sonny hasn’t paid for AJ’s death; so, what’s the difference? Sonny killed AJ because he’s a killer! Not for what Ava said or did! He , Carly and the writers made AJ look as if he was scum and not a Q!

Lil' Angel
Guest
Lil' Angel

Maura West acted circles around MB and LW. Ava should be at the center of storylines, not at the perimeter of Sonny and Carly’s for the sole purpose of propping them up. It’s a complete waste of MW’s talent.

And can we stop with the discovery of an unknown journal trope? It would be much more effective if they showed Morgan writing in it when he was alive.

And I’m really tired of Carly bringing up Ava murdering Connie when AJ’s killer is standing right there.

I totally agree! Plus, the writers make it seem as if Morgan was innocent; he stole Julian’s car! That’s known as grand larceny! These are terrible writers because in reality , Morgan would be arrested if he was found!

Steve

Okay folks, who bears the most responsibility for Morgan’s death? Breaking it down by percentage might be good…

Olivia (ordered bomb in car) 50%
Morgan (stealing car) 20%
Ava (switching meds) 20%
Julian (not revealing Olivia was alive) 5%
His driver (left keys in car) 5%

Boop and Seve, Hi, guys, I had replied to this, but I do mot see it. I wonder; if Morgan’s pills had not been switched, would he have stolen Julian’s car? I have never liked Morgan, but, to be fair, I find him faultless in this. He was not acting rationally. Furthermore ( not to defend Ava’s argument), instead of Sonny and Carly go into one of their inane discussions about their sainted children, namely Morgan; they should have done something as soon as they noticed Morgan’s erratic behavior. But, as Sonny and Carly are wont to do, they lay… Read more »

Too late now, su. But, you’re right. Ava is not Ava of old, anymore, albeit the performance has not waned, in my eyes. Her world is crashing—yet, there still is Julian. Will he avenge his sister?

@Ashton Cripton. Hi, Ashton, Why do you find your own statement ironic, as pertaining to these actresses? Are you an actor, yourself? Otherwise, I don’t see the irony. I’m somewhat confused ? However, I agree that a performance should have no bearing on the redundancy of a storyline, as long as the actor/actress delivers…..albeit, and needless to say, the viewer gets bored. Our attention span has waned with the ‘winds of change’. Women, especially, do not just siit around, accepting the status quo, any longer—we multi-task —we have careers outside the home.

For once, I think Laura Wright deserves accolades for her performance in this scene. She had me riveted. I’ve come to like Maura West a bit more since she’s been on this show ; she is good and sometimes better. I have enjoyed Ava with Scott. However, I find her acting predictable ( as typically are Maurice and Laura ). Maura resorts to screaming and shrieking when she’s up against it, and uses certain old Hollywood campy, facial, eye and mouth expressions (as does Maurice who also uses grazing flicking fingers and hands on forehead and face along with the… Read more »

Just because an actors or actresses performance(s) are “too predictable”, that means that their acting isn’t GOOD?

If their acting WASNT “too predictable”, than I feel that just so many people out their would be crying out for the actors and / or actresses and or characters to instead be “sticking to their ROOTS”.

How hypocritical of Carly to tell Ava, “You can’t use your children as an excuse for all the things you do. Own it!” Ummm, Carly and Sonny, look in the damn mirror.

I agree with you, Kevin O, but I do want to point out that this is SO consistent for Carly. Her inability to see her own hypocrisy has been a constant for her character throughout the years, no matter who was writing the show and which actress was playing the character. (Doesn’t make it any less boring or eye-roll-worthy, but it does demonstrate character consistency.)

There’s no reason some other character couldn’t call her on it, though. That would be a nice addition to the mix.

I agree Maura west did an amazing job with her material.She masterfully played several almost simutaneously. Unfortunately the only way she will be able to get out of the corner these awful writers have put in is if Morgan is not truly dead.Otherwise I see no way out for the character. There is a difference between Ava and Carly. Ava is evil as evidenced by what she did to Morgan and her cold blooded murder of Connie.Carly is simply a tiresome harsh miserable bitch but not evil.

I totally agree, Rebecca. Ava has done some incredibly despicable things (e.g., killing ConnieKate), but for Sonny and Carly to claim some kind of moral high ground is utterly ludicrous; they’ve done as bad or worse. And what they’re criticizing her for in this particular case was pretty lousy, but not in the same league as some of the things Sonny and Carly have done. I can’t justify Ava, but I truly can’t justify S&C’s incredible hypocrisy (other than the fact that, as I pointed out elsewhere, it’s remarkably in character for Carly through the years). It is laughable.

Maura West made me feel bad for Ava after the science was over , I have followed her career since atwt she has been a blessing to watch over the years. I hope this leads to a great story to get her back in the Emmy run! I’m personally tired of Sonny and Carly thinking they are pure good Sonny has killed more than Ava… Carly has done horrible things also.

In this eppy I felt the pain of the parents , their anguish & their sheer disgust over finding out what Ava had done, but then I waited to see Ava deliver her heartfelt sadness & remorse over what she had done to Morgan & knew without a doubt she could deliver it , but all Ava did was scream her lines & do a whole lot of hollering ,it was like a WTF moment where you had to stop and wonder what exactly happened to the actress , this was a case of what should of been.

I think that she can still go their , effectively ( the remorse, anguish, pain, sorrow ) I certainly know how much Ava LOVED Morgan. and still see it from Carly point of view as a parent. the heat of the moment thing… all she could think of was knowing she did it…. how to get out of their…. and her priorities, fighting for her life for Kiki and Avery. you could easily reverse this and it’d be Sonny and Carly… who hollered the same scenes . you could easily see the build up … the frenetic play… how Ava… Read more »

Patrick, I liked your comparison of Jessica Lange (whom I love) and Maura West.
I never cared for Ava and thought the cartoon like writing they gave her made her insufferable. But West is super talented and if anyone saw her on As the World Turns they can tell you she’s a really gifted actress.

Hi, soapgal, Yes, one would have expected to see a repentant Ava; however, what we did see was a cornered tigress in all her glory. What I took away from watching Maura in this scene was brilliance!! Her delivery was ferocious in her ‘screaming’. Personally, Carly and Sonny , albeit grieving parents, were more like Laurel and Hardy……I felt neither the grief nor the sadness radiating from them, in this scene…..both lost the ‘touch’ I has seen previously, for a nano second. Sonny is not scary to me; just a foolish two-bit criminal without a conscience. He and Carly are… Read more »

Great episode and Great week! This show is on fire right now! Can’t wait for Tuesday! I have some issues with how rushed the reveal was from a story standpoint, with a few nitpicks about what was missing that could’ve enhanced the scenes, but it still turned out to be a captivating soapy faceoff with top notch acting and dialouge. Carly and Sonny confronting Ava about Morgan’s death was excellent! What a flaming blazing hot Friday cliffhanger in more ways than one. I would have much rather Ava waited till Carly started attacking her to resort to throwing the lantern… Read more »

Hey again, Patrick,
See that? You saw something between Tyler and Maura. I saw it between her and Stabile…LOL.

So agree!!!!! This coming from a long time viewer lapsed viewer. Caught an episode late summer with Jon Lindstrom and Genie Francis (Kevin and Laura) and the show went back on my DVR. Frankly I’m tired on waiting for things to get better. I will give it a few more weeks, but why this show does not see what they have is beyond me.
The focus on Sonny and Carly is not working

MW was amazing on ATWT, she is amazing now. However what she needs is an amazing love interest. Who could they pair her with on the show now? Valentin? The only other Actor of her calibur.

Celia
Guest

That could work, gwill, albeit I think Nina and Valentin are two lost souls, who came together as one in passion and a life of suffering; as someone already pointed this out.
There is the perfect mate, companion, lover, and friend for Ava. Nikolas Cassadine.
However, the accord, the affinity, the tolerance and spark happened with Nick Stabile.
So, unless Nik, as in Stabile, returns, Ava will aimlessly roam the ‘halls’ ( I did not want to say ‘streets’–too derogatory. LOL) of PC. Well, unless she’s off to the Hoosegow.

@Shay. Thank you, Shaybelle, Effectivelly expressed comment. Yes, there have been many recasts who have filled their predecessors’ shoes impeccably and effortlessly…one being, Nick Stabile. However, my point fell through the cracks; that is….Stabile had a greater connection with Maura….a very sensual current was at the ready….right there on their fingertips. I did not feel that ‘rush’ with Tyler; albeit, I did see the spark between him and Rebecca B. And, yes, I agree with you re Prince Cassadine. He should return, in whatever ‘form’. LOL. Removing him from the scene so abruptly was unfortunate. But, The Soap Gods, whom… Read more »

It’s time GH moves Ava in another story. MW is the best actress in daytime period. She should be mixing with Valentin and Nina instead of Anna. She does not NEED a male lead but it would be fun to see her fall in love again ( i believe she really loved Morgan). I like the idea of a priest helping her find love again…

Maura West. Wow. Just WOW! Such an amazing and true talent that General Hospital had “picked up” at the hands of the Cartini Generation of General Hospital. I feel she and Nancy Lee Grahn are at a pretty close tie right now with being THE BET actresses on the Port Charles and / or the Port Chuck and / or the “General Hospital” canvas right now. The reason(s) Sonny and Carly judge Ava and throw Shame towards her so much, is because them too have done some at least somewhat similar things to what Ava has done and continues to… Read more »

FYI, Serena is alive and well. She is mentioned occasionally by Scott and Lucy. You might be confusing her with Scott’s other daughter, Karen, for whose death he blamed Sonny.

Morgan should be added to the AJ and Sabrina pile of dead characters that are rarely mentioned.

Oh, any any discussion of the best actresses currently on the show must include Finola Hughes!

The door is wide open, yen. It seems that way, doesn’t it? As I mentioned a few days ago, as did Timmm, If Maura exits the show depends on wether her contract is renewed or not. If we are to believe that Ava has third degree burns on fifty percent of her body, and if she survives, the outward beauty will be as monstrous as her inner-self. How can Ava live with that? And, in a prison, to boot. I think this is the opportune time for the truth surrounding Kiki’s birth to rear its revealing head. I still believe… Read more »

I think if MW leaves, it would be her decision, as Frank is a big fan of hers. Although Ava has done many horrendous things, Maura captivates with whatever the writers through at her (exception being Denise Demuccio, which no one could sell). MB doesn’t have that distinction which is why many are now frustrated with Sonny.

Celia, I appreciate your affinity for wanting parentage stories (Nathan, Kiki). I just think that once Silas was killed off, the thought that Kiki might be Nina’s daughter died with him.

It’s the soaps — burn victims always recover with nary a scar (DOOL’s Julie, ATWT’s Barbara) or get a handsome new face (Y&R’s Adam) so I have no doubt Ava will be her beautiful self by Christmas. As for the Kiki being Nina’s daughter, I don’t think the show will ever revisit that potential plot since Ron is gone and the current incarnation of Kiki is too bland to be Nina’s daughter. I think it is more likely that Morgan will turn up alive and it will be revealed that he is Avery’s father and Carly switched the results of… Read more »

@CeeCee….I honestly believe that the character of Ava has run her course…there is no redeeming her, no matter how terribly she suffers for her misdeeds. It seems an exercise in futility to try to save her at this point…if this storyline is a device for the demise of Ava, I can go with it. Especially if this maneuver is solely designed to hold Maura West hostage through a sticky contract renewal…just let her leave, sobeit!…The absence of her character could open new opportunities for other players stuck in old, stale holding positions…namely, Kiki, who, I still maintain, should really be… Read more »

LOL, Steve. Having an affinity with someone or something does not relate to wanting anything. I do not have an affinity with either Kiki or Nathan. Our familial backgrounds are as different as night and day….having nothing in common; not a want or wish or hope…..the point of the word, “affinity”….a camaraderie, or common ground for having similar tastes, feelings etc. As I stated, there was no sign of AFFINITY between Nina and Kiki, as the storyline of Kiki’s parentage evolved. What drew me towards that route was the fact that, nuKiki is tall and lanky as Nina, in contrast… Read more »

@Shay. Hiyah, Shaybelle, Oh, believe me, I agree that Ava’s absence may give way to other storylines which have become “stale”, waiting off-stage. I suppose, this “burn excuse” could be the perfect gimmick used while awaiting any contract negotiations. However, as far as Maura having run her course? I tend to agree with Alan. Firstly, I could never tire of Maura West. And, secondly, why hasn’t Sonny run his course? Rhetorical question. I know you feel the same way for Sonny, as I do. As Alan said, there is a double standard. Now, my Shay, I know you do not… Read more »

I can’t believe I’m going to say this…
What if there really is a Denise Demuccio out there? One who is less ridiculous than the last one and has dyed hair instead of a wig. Gives Maura a character without the baggage.

Okay, back to almost reality, Maura would be a big loss, but it would remove another mob character from the canvas. You take the good, you take the bad.

Oh, CeeCeeGirl….Just from the GH threads here alone, I think it’s pretty obvious that Sonny has “run his course!” Many of us have expressed our utmost disgust with his character, as well as Carly’s, on umpteen occasions….apparently to no avail! But that doesn’t mean that we have to willingly suffer other overbearing players simply because we are seemingly stuck with Old SonnyBoy ’til the cows come home! (He may be an onus, but at least he’s an original GH onus!) Ava is a deplorable, diabolical diva of deep depravity without a clear direction in sight….her departure would be no great… Read more »

I wish I could have seen it as Maura is a phenomenal actress, but Maurice sucks the life out of any scenes that contains Sonny not to mention sucks the life out of GH.

So let me get this straight: Ava killed Connie and she is a murderer but Sonny killed AJ and he is a respected member of Port Charles? Ava switched Morgan’s pills and she’s a villain but Morgan switched Michael’s pills and that’s not a thing because he got later the bi-polars and is the deceased son of Saint Sonny?

The double standards on this show make me sick.

At one point, I even suggested Nelle and Kiki, as sisters, struck a chord with me. I remember Jimmy ( not jimh) had a proposition about Nelle. Not that she and Kiki were sisters, but that Nelle was Nina’s daughter. My point? Sometimes, we, as viewers,… Read more »

YES! & no matter what Carly or Sonny do, it is JUSTIFIED and out of LOVE for their children, because they are such WONDERFUL parents. So, when Sonny slept with Ava, knowing that Morgan cared for her, that was OKAY and to be forgiven. When Sonny hung AJ on the meat hook and stripped away his parental rights, and then later killed him, again, that is OKAY and to be forgiven. & when Carly drugged AJ and poured vodka all over him to make it look as though AJ had fallen off the wagon, again, OKAY.

I’m starting to believe the writers don’t know the history of Carly/Sonny/AJ…seriously. I can’t believe that they could be so inept to think it’s okay to write as if the past never happened.

Carly and Sonny should have kept Ava in there to die. Sonny and Carly make a good couple. Whoever said Sonny and Ava to be together, that will never happen, she messed up big time especially with Morgan’s pills.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
