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.

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.

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
