GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

Photo: JPI

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.

Mommy Nelle from Hell verses Wimpy Weepy Willow who could be knocked over with a pillow…silly Willy Willow…and come on Brad…make it your show..tell what you know…yes, Brad tell Lucas it was his dad who knew too…and if Pukas Lucas gets mad at his dad well, Brad it was still the right thing to do!!-lol

Brad only got a small part of what he deserves. He needs to be arrested!

He sure does!

Why should Brad be arrested when Sonny and Jason are out committing crime on the daily…?

Because one thing has nothing to do with the other. Second of all, I would like to know what Brad’s excuse means when he kept saying that he was grieving and that’s how Nelle got to him.! Grieving about what? An adopted baby he had for less than an hour.He’s such an ass. How could any mother such as Willow give a child to someone like him?
You can talk about Sonny all you want but he would never have done to one of his kids what Julian has done to Lucas, and for what? Not love that’s for sure but because of his guilt for being such s lousy father.

Alan

No, Sonny would just steal AJ’s son from him with Carly’s blessing and then be outraged years later when it happens to his “son.”

As for Brad grieving “an adopted baby he had less than an hour”…wow, that’s harsh. It’s not like Brad lost a pair of shoes or his new i-phone — that was a living being that he and Lucas had waited for to build their family and who they had hopes and dreams for. Every parent talks about the overwhelming love they felt the first time they saw/held their child (and being adopted doesn’t make that child or that love lesser) so why wouldn’t Brad feel the devastation of such a loss?

This is not about Sonny and Jason. This is about the kidnapping of a child by Brad.

I think it’s hypocritical to say Brad should be the one person to pay for his actions on a show that seems to thrive on people NEVER paying for their crimes: Laura, Alexis, Ava, Franco, Sonny, and Jason have all killed people. Carly shot Tony Jones, withheld evidence that Sonny killed AJ, and stole another woman’s identity before coming to Port Charles. Sam committed multiple crimes before and after arriving in Port Charles. Sonny and Jason have committed untold crimes as “coffee importers.” Maxie stole drugs from the hospital for Lucky when he was addicted. Valentin threw Ava over the parapet. Nina induced labor and stole Ava’s baby. And the list goes on and on…I

Yeah but kidnapping your husband’s nephew isn’t merely a crime, it’s a really DUMB crime.

Once again, under New York State Law the only issue is Brad kidnapping a baby.

Highly disappointing.

After all this time…Whose decision was it to have Carly be the main focus of this episode? Lucas and Michael are the most impacted. Bobbie has both her children involved. Heck, everyone in the room, except Julian could all go to town on Brad.

Highlights of the episode:
– The Nelle – Willow fight.
– The reveal that Taggert is Trina’s dad. Just hope that they don’t pull a Burt Ramsey on Taggert. Long time viewers know what I mean.

Satan

I don’t think they’re going to “Burt Ramsey” Taggart, now that they made Trina his kid.

What seems inevitable however, is that Taggart is going to have to work with Sonny & Jason to bring down Cyrus the Virus. And you know he’s really gonna HATE that. Won’t be so hard for Jordan… she used to work for Sonny already.

Yep…overdone with Snarly Carly…now if Julian could be found out knowing and tampered with the car that injured his own son!!!-bet Snarly Carly will be in that too

You know, Steve, it was a big mistake for the characters to keep repeating how long Brad had been lying to them. “Over a year”, “18 months you knew…” All this did was remind us how llllooonnggg this oversudsed plot has been creaking along. And, as usual, it’s resolved in 24 hours. There should have been a full episode devoted to the reveal with everyone having a chance to shine. Instead, Sheriff Carly, the Great Rationalizer, castrates the entire room and starts forcing Brad to “enumerate” what happened step by step, like a deranged Algebra teacher. Nelle/Chloe and Willow/Katelyn were fabulous and having both women essentially fighting for their child was very well done. What I DIDN’T need were the interruptions of Sonny & Jason in another inane mob plot and this ridiculous Jordan-driven mystery. Trina & Cameron were cute together, but belonged in a different episode.

What Soaphound and Allen said. Narly caterwauling in the center of the group of characters was annoying as hell. Carly barely knows her half-step brothers (she ruined Lucas’s adoptive father Tony’s life) and yet she is goes on and on as if SHE were Nelle’s intended victim? I need a break from Narly.

Colin

Lol….are you new?? Carly, Jason, and Sonny ultimately become the focal point of everything…even stories they have NOTHING to do with. The hypocrisy of Carly never amazes to floor me. I cant believe that this many writing regimes have been able to keep this character such a non self aware hypocrite! Michael had merry go round fathers before Carly finally settled on Sonny as his “father”. First she claimed the father was Tony…then Jason….then Sonny…meanwhile his REAL father was AJ. Carly didn’t like him so she played little games like “Let’s douse AJ in alcohol and make him fall off the wagon!” or “Sonny, can we hang AJ on a meat hook today and force him to sign over parental rights??” Carly and Sonny also take glee and joy in keeping Ava away from her daughter Avery. They have spent a lifetime keeping children from their rightful parents!! So who the hell is Carly to throw shade at anyone?? And Bobbie did something with Lucas when he was a baby…she lied about his true parentage so she could keep him as her adopted child. Listening to her sanctimonious spewing was quite grating too!! The self righteous Sonny and Carly are the two reasons I cant fully invest in this show! Because these two slimeballs always come out on top, untouched and unscathed.

I know, Colin, I know. I just keep hoping, in vain as it turns out, that SOMEONE will wake up to the madness of the Corinthos/Morgan takeover of years ago. There are so many more interesting people to focus on. I abandoned the show after many years when Billy Miller checked out. But then….the Nikolas return and the Nelle resurgence got me hooked again. I still FF anything to do with the militantly repulsive Peter August and keep hoping Billy/Drew will return. And I confess to liking the Ava/Nikolas tale.

Soaphound…sadly speaking, I don’t think that the characters of Peter and Carly are gonna be written off of GH anytime soon. I mean…seeing as how Wes Ramsey and Laura Wright (1) are 2 GH FAVORITES and (2) are dating each other in real life. BEYOND ANNOYING!!!!!

Later.

All good points on Carly. She got triggered due to Nelle’s involvement. I have to admit I was rooting for Nelle to get away with the baby–I like her character’s shenanigans-for some period of time and then get caught and later reunion the baby with Michael.

Davy

The show I saw had too much Carly screeching and making it about her and not enough Michael and Lucas expressing their outrage. But then, some things never change. Poor Bobbie just sat there, looking fantasic by the way, with her mouth hanging open, probably wishing Carly would shut up.

Jeffrey

Wiley is an adorable child.

Alan

It would’ve made more sense for Lucas’ memory to have been jogged while in the car to the airport. The only thing that being in the Corinthos house should have triggered was nausea,

And of course Carly’s caterwauling took center stage. I so wanted Julian to step forward and ask her if she was this outraged when Sonny stole Michael from AJ or if that was different because she gave her blessing.

Poor Brad. He’ll lose everything for one mistake yet Saint Sonny and Jason can commit every crime in the book and come out smelling like roses.

I’m rooting for Nelle. At least she’s entertaining.

anne

You want the writers to leave a baby in the care of Nelle the psychopath?

Alan
Alan

The alternative is the baby being in the hands of wimpy Michael who is totes cool with his career criminal family who are guilty of hundreds of more crimes than Nelle. I don’t think Nelle is any worse a role model than Sonny, Carly, Michael, and their pals Jason and Sam.

Soaphound
Soaphound

You know, Alan, I’d rather see Wiley with Lucas after all since he doesn’t have too much involvement with Sonny. If not, let Willow have him. She couldn’t do any worse than Carly the Castrator. Oh, I just realized…. Carly is now a grandmother. If I ever hear the words Nana Carly spoken on that show…. I’ll free Nelle myself!

aria

I love the episodes and yes finally, but I have to agree with some poster, how the heck did this.become the Carly show? it was almost like it was all about Carly(clearly one of franks V pet) and Bobbie just stood there like an extra, clearly the writers don’t know how to write for multiple people in a scene, the bobbie I knew would of had more to say. I’m glad brad is getting what he deserves, him and Julian are both weasels. one thing I was glad about was that although this storyline was the main focus, the other storyline playing out with taggert, curtis and Jordan was just as interesting.

This comment is about Taggert and Trina…
Maybe Stella is Taggert’s mom and Trina is her granddaughter…connecting back to the DNA tests that revealed they each had a relative in PC. Taggert and Curtis would be cousins!

What a refreshing, straight-forward reveal! Lucas remembers and, true to the character’s honesty, he stands up and tells Michael immediately that Wiley is his. Then the fireworks started to really light the room! I think there will be a lot more.

These past two episodes were dynamite!

I am so sick of Carly. You hardly ever see her with her own newborn. Then there is Liesl who knew the truth about Wiley. Didn’t she help Nelle at the birth of Michael and her baby? Wonder if she will factor into the reveal at some time. And since other commenters are doing it, sick of Sonny as well, and really disappointed we are going to have another Sonny/Jason crime story. Why should Jason be anywhere near his own kids. He’s a great role model for his own kids. “Let’s bomb a building in retaliation…make sure my gun’s ready…how does he get a license to carry anyway.” And just a little defense of the actor who plays Peter. I like him. Not a great role to play. I think he has probably been disliked by many because of his association with “Carly.”

Carly, “mother of the year.”

OK…here are the GH characters that I am TRULY SICK OF: Alexis, Carly, Jason, Peter, Sam and Sonny.

Everybody else…I like.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
