GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michelle Stafford Delivers Riveting Performance As Nina Confronts A Captive Henrik!

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers learned that it was Nina (Michelle Stafford) who gave an assist to none other than Liesl (Kathleen Gati), who are the responsible parties for kidnapping Peter aka Henrik (Wes Ramsey).

It all happens in a cabin in the woods when Peter wakes up screaming, strapped to a bed.  When Nina comes through the door, he is shocked. Nina launches into an emotional tirade of a grieving sister who lost the brother who meant the world to her, and who she always looked up to, and saw as her protector.  She rails on Peter that she wants her brother, Nathan back, and accuses Peter of using her beloved sibling as a human shield. A desperate Peter tries to tell her, that he is nothing like his nefarious father, Cesar Faison, and he really fought hard against that.  Nina doesn’t believe him for a second, and doesn’t like how he tried to insinuate himself into Maxie’s life when she was most vulnerable … pregnant, and grieving the loss of her husband. After not really wanting to hear another word out of Peter’s mouth, Nina reveals that it’s actually someone else that is keeping him hostage there.

In wanders Dr. Obrecht with a hatchet.  (Memories of Misery?)  Now, it looks like Dr. O is going to smash the hatchet into Peter’s head, but she smashes it into the wall behind him instead.  Nina tells her aunt that while Liesl has kidnapped Peter and taking matters into her own hands, it’s only a matter of time before the WSB tracks Peter down.  Nina vows she wants payback as well, but thinks the police should handle it. However, Obrecht disagrees, and decides she should keep Peter locked up, until he confesses to whatever will put him away permanently.  They shake on it. Next, Peter begs Nina not to leave him alone with the “maniac.” However, Nina leaves anyway, as Obrecht gags him.

What touched us most in these scenes, was Michelle Stafford’s portrayal of Nina’s pain, betrayal, and need for retribution for the death of her brother.  Stafford illustrated why she continues to be one of the most noted actresses on the soap with her ability to weave levels and depth of emotion into a performance.

What did you think of Michelle Stafford’s performance?  What did you think of Obrecht and Nina being the people that are holding Peter captive?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Love Michelle – as usual delivers a fantastic performance.
I was a little surprised to see her at the cabin – at least so soon,I figured it would be Liesl and she would bring Nina into the fold eventually.

Michelle Stafford is a very powerful actress.
She doesn’t often get the credit she deserves.
Michelle is indeed one of the best of the best actors and she never fails to bring it home.
When she is given good material she is outstanding.

Michelle has been continuing to turn out powerful performances. First, with James Patrick Stuart and now Wes Ramsey? They’re clearly trying to use her for her strengths, which is nice to finally see happen!

Michelle has been, finally, given the chance to exhibit the talent few can claim.
The lioness is out….a’roar; claws sharpened in the name of her family/brother/cousin.
I hope she runs him though a skewer.

Seems only the praiseworthy posts made it on this thread! With all the serious scenery-chomping that went on by this character, Peter is lucky to still have a roof over his head! #NotImpressed….

Adore Michelle. I know that Michelle/Nina do not have a very popular fan base with the viewers; but, I think she is great. Michelle steals scenes. As much as I hate this storyline and I can’t stand the parking lot hire, I loved Michelle in these scenes.

No word yet on when Ainsworth will be back on air on GH, but stay tuned!

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.
