GENERAL HOSPITAL: Maxie/Anna Touching Scene! Dante & Lulu Name "Their" Baby … Connie!

On yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, the drama continued as several stories provided plenty of cliffhangers for the near future.  Plus, once again, there were some beautiful performances from Kirsten Storms as Maxie Jones, who if she does not get a Daytime Emmy nomination for her work, it will be a crime of it’s own, and Daytime Emmy winner, Finola Hughes as Anna Devane.

In story, Anna comes to see Maxie who is still in the hospital and trying to come to terms with the fact that she has given her biological daughter to Dante(Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan), who are now poised to leave the hospital with “their” new baby girl.   During the two women scene, Anna and Maxie share their sadness, in particular when Anna discusses having to leave little Robin (Kimberly McCullough)behind, when she would have to go off around the world during  spy days, and how it just broke her heart to have to keep saying goodbye.   Anna was trying to help Maxie let-go of baby Falconeri, while the two discussed much they miss Robin! It was a touching scene in the more than capable hands of Storms and Hughes!

Later, Dante and Lulu still have not given a name to “their” baby, and when Anna stops by to see the new little bundle of joy, she also brings her a gift.  Anna also tells the couple to name their daughter after something or someone meaningful!

Elsewhere, Sonny(Maurice Benard) is not taking his meds, losing his cool, and falling further and further into emotional trouble.   After finding out about AJ (Sean Kanan),  and being hounded by reporters outside his house and punching one out, he comes inside where Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) is trying her best to deal with him.   Enter Dante and Lulu, who bring “their” new daughter to it’s grandfather, Sonny.  And in another touching moment, as the baby sits in the arms of Sonny, Dante and Lulu reveal they have named the little girl … Connie! 

So GH fans, what did you think about the choice of the name of Dante and Lulu’s baby? All for it, because you can foresee what may happen next?  Or, against it?  If so, what would you have named the little girl? And. what did you think about the scene between Maxie and Anna? Well-written? Hankie moment?  Share your thoughts below!

If Kristen Storms does not get any Emmy nom it will be ludicrous !!!!

I would have given Connie as the middle name !

I agree and am keeping my fingers crossed that Kirsten gets an emmy nod and win! I was also thinking that Connie could have been the middle name. After all, neither Dante nor Lulu were close to Connie. I think Connie’s middle name was Louise which would be cute seeing that there are a lot of Spencers with an “L” name.

Her name shouldve been Louise…Great grandma Leslie(who shouldve been at the hospital), grandma Laura, mama Lulu, and baby Louise but what heartache when they all find out the baby girl is really Maxis and Spinnellis…scene should be a real tearjerker when Dante and Lulu find out she isnt their daughter…maybe in Nov. sweeps!!!

Kristen and Bradford both deserve an emmy…their scenes at the hospital were unbeatable…imho!

Agreed! Kirsten has been fantastic. Her scene with Anna was just wonderful. Loved the layers in the dialogue and the performances.

And Ron surprised me again. I was sure that baby wouldn’t get a name until she was back with spixie. Nope, gh kept me on my toes again.

I wouldve named her Damianna after her father…kidding…im cool with Connie until her true parentage is revealed to all probably during Nov. sweeps…still hoping Sonny goes off the deep end and kills Olivia…Diane and Kevin could claim temporary insanity so Sonny will avoid prison…LOL!!!

Kirsten Storms as Maxie and Bradford Anderson as Spinelli have been the acting powerhouses of this “baby” story line, giving Emmy-caliber performances which have given the needed heart, integrity and emotional intensity to this story. Wonderful work!

And, of course, Finola Hughes is a gem, always bringing depth and real emotions to her scenes!

And who can resist watching a handsome man holding an infant – and when that man is seen doing in the midst of an emotional crisis – even more heart-warming. Touching scene with Mo and baby “Connie.”

I predict theyll win a much deserved emmy next year, and the show as well!

I don’t always credit Maurice with being a great actor, but that split second yesterday, when they told him the baby’s name, his reaction was priceless. I think all of soapdom uttered a collective, “awwwwww”….

Loved the Maxie/Anna scenes! Has anyone else grown to dislike Sonny as much as I have??? I used to WORSHIP him and now I find myself just FF through his scenes. He’s SOOOO melodramatic and over the top (even when it isn’t related to his bi-polar disorder). The only scenes l enjoys of his are when he is bantering with Alexis. What happened to my Sonny from the 90’s? UGH!

Finola Hughes is a treasure trove for GH. Be it gentle and nurturing or tough and kick-ass, she brings it every single time – like a boss!

I usuaklly grimace at switched-baby and dubious parentage storylines, but the actors here rock it, particularly Miss Storms. Just please let there be resolution before Christmas!

Kirsten and Finola were/are fabulous!!! I would also add that Bradford was incredible too! However this is about yesterday’s episode, which was just incredible! Kirsten and Finola are two of my top 5-10 actors on GH! If Kirsten, Finola and Bradford don’t get Emmy’s for this work… they will have been robbed! Kirsten especially has been stellar in every scene and your heart just goes out to her… I just want her to have little Georgie for her own so badly!!! I love when we get to see Finola/Anna more and when we get to see the many sides of… Read more »

I wanted to add that I love scenes like this and they are needed and add so much to the show! I know doing something like this scene is not addressing Luke and his quest and many other storylines that are back burnered at the moment. This scene brought the continuing story line moving and is setting things up but it is also one of those scenes that you need more of where you get to see two characters and actors deal with a difficult emotional issue in a sweet and simple way that let’s us see these characters being… Read more »

Enough with the secret that Lulu and Dante aren’t the parents of Connie……. this is what annoys me the most about soap opera’s how they drag the story on forever! Hopefully Brad will open his mouth and tell someone or everyone that the baby is Spinelli’s and Maxie’s. Let’s be done with this story!

Kelly Thiebaud Departing General Hospital and Heading Back to ‘Station 19’

Kelly Thiebaud is now set to reprise her role of Eva Vasquez, on ABC’s primetime drama, Station 19 and thus the Daytime Emmy winner will exit her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne on General Hospital.

According to Deadline, Thiebaud will be part of the cast for the series 6th season, which premieres on October 6th.

Previously, Kelly appeared on the show’s 3rd season when in story, as the widow of firefighter Rigo Vasquez (Rigo Sanchez), she had an affair with her husband’s colleague Jack Gibson (Grey Damon) that resulted in total chaos.

In a tease for Thiebaud’s return, ABC shared, “Misery loves company and Eva finds solace with someone from her past.”

Kelly has played GH’s Britt on and off since 2012. She won her first Daytime Emmy this past June for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance.

Look for Kelly to exit her GH role in November, while a rep for the soap shared that the actress will be leaving by year’s end.

What do you think of Kelly going to Station 19 and departing General Hospital? How do you think GH will deal with her exit? Will tragedy befall Britt with her living with Huntington’s Disease? Will she be written-off the canvas, leaving the door open for her return?

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.
