GENERAL HOSPITAL: Morgan Messes Up The Arms Deal & Is About To Mess Up Julexis' Wedding!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Julian (William deVry) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grhan) finally made it to the altar as the highly-anticipated nuptials for the duo got underway.

But not before, Julexis fans were treated to a montage of the history of the duo and some of their sexcapades, and how they found true love with one another along the way.   Alexis took a moment in the church before finishing her vows to Julian to read his heartfelt letter to his bride. Sonny (Maurice Benard) is already placed in his wheelchair at the wedding, saying he is there for his daughter, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth).  However, Sonny had a little talk with God and said a prayer to protect his family, and also that he was sorry he has lied to them.  Will he finally get up and walk?

Meanwhile, all the action is on Pier 54 as the arms deal is going down between Dixon (Troy Ruptash) and Paul (Richard Burgi), with Anna (Finola Hughes) supposedly having back-up for Paul.  However, lurking in the shadows is a manic Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig), off his meds and wanting to prove to his father Sonny that he isn’t a screw up.  But that’s just the problem … his presence is interfering in the deal!  Kiki (Hayley Erin) finally listens to her phone message where Morgan reveals to her he is heading to Pier 54 at 6 o’clock.  Later, Kiki tells Michael (Chad Duell), just as Michael and Carly (Laura Wright) discover Morgan has taken Sonny’s gun.

And at the wedding ceremony, you may have blinked and missed this moment, but Brad (Parry Shen) informed Lucas (Ryan Carnes) he is finally divorced from Rosalie (Linda Elena Tovar).  Remember Rosalie?  As the nuptials get underway, two of the Davis girls, Sam  (Kelly Monaco) and Molly (Haley Pullos) read sonnets to Julexis.

Back at the pier, after Dixon is suspicious of a call Paul made to Anna, and Paul covered who he was really talking to on the other end, Morgan pops out from the shadows and confronts Dixon.  He lets him know this is Sonny’s territory, and he is Sonny’s s son, and he is there to represent the Corinthos family interests.  Dixon then wants to get rid of Morgan.  Paul conveys that would be a mistake.  Dixon calls Morgan crazy.  Morgan takes offense and pulls a gun on Dixon and his men.

From the looks of it, it’s Morgan and his hotheaded temper and his manic episode that will perpetuate everything coming undone at Julian and Alexis’ wedding.  Will the couple say their “I do’s”, before Dixon comes barreling into the ceremony as previewed on last week’s ABC promo?  What did you think of Morgan’s behavior?  The letter Julian wrote to Alexis?  Share your thoughts on the episode below as viewers are anticipating plenty of action to go down on Tuesday’s episode.

Right on, again, Shay. How long have these two been on screen together? Luke and Laura; Anna and Robert? A lifetime, in soap standard. Montage, cacage. Can’t even show anything else. No momentous memory….no significant happening…WHAT? That’s all they’ve got, Shay. All ‘they’ could show was the saltimbanchi’s acrobatics fit for the young….not for them. Everything was wrong with this wedding. You know how I feel about the Church, sooo….. Then the dress. Either put the train starting at the waist; or below the ‘fanny’; not from there. It looked like an aquatic fin. Plus, how does a bride walk… Read more »

Hey, Shay.
I don’t know about you, but, finally, Morgan did well, today. I believed him. You know how I feel about Sonny, but he sort of impressed me, as well. Both actors surprised me. Morgan’s tears got to me….but, the real twisting of the heart which got me was when mother and son came together. I CRIED!!!! That has to mean something, no?
I really and truly hope Craig continues in this vein. Bye, babes.

Let’s see, no romantic flashbacks for Luke and Laura. None for Anna and Robert, either….yet when it comes to these two and their non-stop, nauseating sexcapades , we get a warm and fuzzy montage. Oh, spare me and pass the sick bag. A retrospective of Julian’s best fashion moments in turtlenecks would have been preferable to this feminist-fueled post-menopausal fantasy.

I am just going to say it–the whole Julian/Alexis montage was all about sex, sex and sex.
Alexis’s dress choice was most unfortunate as well as unflattering.
Look, I believe a bride should be allowed to wear white and do anything she wants regardless of age. However, I also believe women, all women of all ages, owe it to themselves and their guests to choose the most flattering wedding gown.
That dress did nothing but underscore a muffin top and a baggy back.
Sorry but it’s true.

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

Yes, Harry. The montage was all about sex..thus the title Fifty shades of Julexis.

And though you crack me up…should a woman with flapping arms sweat her guts out in the sweltering heat because that sleeveless blouse isn’ flattering? And did I read you correctly? A bride owes it to her guests to choose the most flattering wedding gown. Yikes!

Sigh…live and let live. Let’s all chant that together.

CeeCee, I’ve said this a million times, I DONT LIKE FRANCO! Roger is great, Franco was dead when James Franco died and should have stayed dead! Roger seems bored playing Franco. He is a stick in the mud with Nina. Not particularly found of Nina either but love Michelle. I dont know who Nina would hook up with, maybe Julian? Franco should be killed off and Roger should regroup. If not, clean him up and have him and Liz fall in love. IF Rebecca remains on the show. Thats another chit chat. Later luv!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Oh, my Timmmy. I do agree with you. Franco has lost that little pull he had on me.
Plus, albeit my love for Nina, I have said, repeatedly, that what TPTB did to the character is unforgivable. Now, they are trying to shine a benevolent light upon her. However, it will not work for those viewers who held antipathy from the onset. I will always have a special place just for Michelle.
And, yes, I wish things would happen just as you say. Except the part about Julian….not with Nina. He has been skankified by Alexis. Love, love me do, babes. LOL.

I think Jean and Shelley wrote for Michelle when she was on Y&R? Maybe this is the shift from their pen to our screens? I will wait and see how this pans out but her and Roger are a bust! He is bitching about kids, marriage, ect. Its over. I see what your saying about Julian. I was just thinking who could Nina hook up with? She is crazy enough to do a bi story! Why not? Maybe too late but she was in a coma for twenty years. What does she remember? Do I like boys or girls? I… Read more »

@Harry 1. Exactly my point, darling Harry. It is natural for a woman of that age to have no elasticity to her skin. I do everything in my power now to prepare myself. But, as my father-in-law says…it’s like trying to make a hole in water. LOL. …..some kind of Italian adage. It is part of aging. Sagging!! However, a woman usually tries to hide these little flaws, not show them. There were little ‘pockets’ everywhere. Somehow, Harry; when I say it, I seem to start a frenzy.

Same here Harry .. I quit after the Valentine’s Day episodes. It’s clear romance is not a priority on this show. Now there’s finally a wedding .. between two people I don’t care about .. but at least a wedding .. but it has to be “jazzed up” with mob stuff. That’s GH these days. I’ll still tune in occasionally (like if Robert Scorpio shows up) but every day? No thanks.

Haven’t seen the episode yet. Not a huge Julexis fan. And definitely NOT a Morgan fan. The writers dont’t know what to do with him except give the actor “manic” episodes to play. When Morgan’s not pouting or feeling sorry for himself he’s raging. He’s been reduced to a plot device that is deployed when they want to climax a story. Morgan gets manic, gets a gun, threatens violence, bad stuff happens. This like what? The third time Morgan’s been involved in an episode like this?

All I can say is whew! For a minute there I almost thought the wedding might be about Alexis and Julian and not Sonny but Jean and Shelley have come through once again, making what should have been Alexis’ episode(s) all about the crime kingpin of Port Charles. Hopefully the remainder of the ceremony — or at the very least the reception — will be put on hold so everyone can get down to the very important business of worrying about doofus Morgan and how his actions will affect Saint Sonny.

When will we ever learn. I’s always about Sonny. Always. What I’m left thinking about (after Tuesday’s episode) is that all of these characters know that Sonny is the cause of all of the violence and danger in their lives, yet time and time again they prop him as “a good father”. Are the characters that dumb or are we the viewers that dumb?

Lol. Justin. It’s the writers who are dumb in think WE are that dumb.

Question…can someone with bi-polar who is off their meds goes as unrealistic and extreme as Morgan in real life.?

Also want to add, while I like Alexis in most cases, I don’t know why it’s treated like a badge of honour when your daughter (Molly) is no longer a virgin. And it’s part of the pre-wedding, mom and daughter toast. Then Christine is acting like an immature brat about the whole thing. It’s not like she’s in a position to to be an expert to know what’s right for Molly or anybody else for that matter.

Timmm

It was weird. So you find out your daughter had sex and oh, by the way, here is an alcoholic beverage, even though she is underage, Alexis is an attorney and knows it is illegal to provide minors with alcohol!

I actually thought Alexis and her daughters were in character and very real. Alexis has always had a communicative relationship with her daughters and encouraged Molly and Christina (Sam was already an adult) to come to her about anything…and discouraged them about being promiscuous. Not sure if you watched back then but she went to great lengths to keep Molly from having sex…even followed her and TJ to a hotel where they were planning their first time. She carted Molly out of there and became almost too protective. With that came her maternal speech about Molly not rushing into anything,… Read more »

Thank you for not blasting me so much this time around. I do not think of myself as cooler, hipper or a know-it-all. Far from it. The only sexual experience I have is with my husband. Alexis is loose, in my opinion. You think otherwise….that is your prerogative. I have never said Alexis has a disease ( if I did, I mis-wrote) . What I said was that when a woman, regardless of age, craves sex constantly , then it is a medical condition which needs medical attention before it does become a disease. I may be 29, but, I… Read more »

@Rose….Were it just about any other mother in question, I’d totally be on board with you, but this IS Alexis, you know, post-menopausal sex goddess extraordinaire, whose life revolves around satisfying the urgent, unabated needs of her nether regions. So, of course, proud mama Ms. Davis is pleased as punch her babygirl has finally turned in her V-Card! Time is a-wasting…..Molly has a LOT of men to get skanky with before she can even approach her maternal role model’s slapper status…and now she’s well on her way! Mazel tov! (Wouldn’t you drink to that?????)

And don’t forget–Molly gave up her virginity only to prove to Kristina that she was not a lesbian.
What ever happened to romance?
Even this wedding manages to be about sex and violence–it’s dreadful for about a million different reasons.
Virginity and sex seem to be a huge deal with Alexis and her daughters. I guess that is why Alexis has been a born again virgin about a hundred times.

I wander if Molly and TJ did it in the back of a Camaro! Alexis’s daughters are all trucked up! You watch Shayster, we will soon see ANOTHER mobster roll into town AND “Good Golly Miss Molly” will bag his son! And the tradition continues!

I used to like Alexis. A lot. Once upon a time, she was a character who had multiple dimensions. Now she’s basically reduced to, as you aptly put it, Shay, “satisfying the . . . needs of her nether regions.” And to be clear, I think it’s great to portray a woman who has reached a certain age as still beautiful and sexually vital (especially in a medium that constantly tells us that people over 35 or 40, especially women, are no longer attractive or interesting). I just don’t much like the message that it’s either-or. Can’t she be a… Read more »

Alexis is making a mockery out of making love. She has sex. Period. It seems that you are the only one who gets my point. A woman of 60 who has sex on her mind constantly, is neither normal, natural or realistic…..the answer is as easy as 1,2,3. TPTB take us for idiots. Without being too specific, there are a thousand and one problems/ issues with intercourse after menopause. Any woman who is post menopausal and naysays this fact should see an OBGYN. It is nature taking its course. There are remedies….however, “The healthy sexual appetite” wanes at that age…..that’s… Read more »

As Rose said, Shay…..it all depends on our upbringing. Some things should be kept private. Perhaps, I have been too sheltered….I can now appreciate that. I have never known a mother to cry tears of joy that her baby had lost her virginity and was now a woman. Grrrrrr.
Why is it so hard for people to accept and respect others’ opinions?
Does Alexis ever think about VD or HIV? Night, cara.

@nancy dillingham….Thank you very much, Ms. Dillingham! Your words are high praise, indeed!

@Harry 1….Yes, that marital farce was dreadful in so many ways! “Where’s the romance?” Indeed!!!! The whole thing played out like a dark comedy, except it really wasn’t one whit amusing. It could have been quite hysterically funny had it been played purely for laughs. For example, your favorite, oft-mentioned Madonna tune most definitely should have been utilized for the bridal processional……would have been fitting on a number of levels!!!

I know, Rose. I could never talk to my mother about my virginity or lack-thereof. Sure we discussed sex. Things like….don’t do it; but if you must, protect yourself. But, never ever discuss the deed whether it happened or not.
Great way of expressing it…” Badge of honor”.
Oh-oh!! Just as I predicted. Kiki got shot. I sensed this since Mogan send her that text.
But, I side with Shay here. The Apple does not fall far from the tree. Later.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

I must add that my mother spoke a facsimile of those words because I started dating my husband at 16. I had never had a boyfriend before…just a friend here and there, going to the movies, a party etc. Our families were friends, yet, she gave me her SPEECH, as I am sure all mothers do…to both genders. Mainly to beware, be aware and be wary.
To me, Alexis is not the exemplary mother….she has children from 3 different men…but, so does Liz, Carly….anyone else? But, Alexis is the only one who thinks she is one of the kids herself.

Timmm

You were right about Kiki! WHY? I actually am warming up to the actress. Morgan is just like Sonny, the people around him ALWAYS get hurt! WHY wasnt Morgan eating lead instead in his head and turning his shirt red while he is off his meds!

Guest
CeeCee

@Michaet ( not Fairman).
Whatever medium thinks that, should dispel that notion. It is unrealistic and ridiculous.
Women in their 40’s still gestate…. In their prime; gorgeous and full of life.
However, a woman of 60, while yet sexually (if not fecund) viable until death, ( not to speak of the exhaustion involved) sex becomes less and less pleasurable after menopause.
Exactly my point, Michael. Alexis and her constant craving is not credible….
I think it is because Julian is a decade younger, TPTB try to bring Alexis up to par…. I am not buying it. Later.

OH WOW CeeCee! I just read your response to Michael (not Fairman). The things you say and think…I’m sorry but I mean this sincerely…scare me. Those viewpoints regarding women scare me. And the detached, technical way you phrased it? Creepy. Wrong…but creepy!

CeeCee/Rebecca…I’ll start off by saying I think, for me, both of you have valid points of view, some more valid to me than others. But sometimes I do get tired I of this subject being belaboured to death every time Alexis and Julian are mentioned. But I just want to add a, funny now, antidote about how my mom handled the “sex” situation with me growing up. In retrospect it’s almost humorous but at the time really embarrassing. I also come from an Italian, Catholic family. And Catholic or not you just didn’t “do it” until you were married. Well,… Read more »

People have expressed that they’d like to see her back in the courtroom and it’s true, Alexis was always the go-to lawyer. She was, and is, great.

GH has a lot going on this week which is cool! I wonder if Morgan will get shot by someone? Anyone? I mean this character is one that dare I say it, I’d like to see take a bullet and go away for a bit. Great actor but the storyline has been done and it’s like a roller coaster here and not in a good way.

Oh come on! This manic Morgan stuff is getting so old and so is he. He’s an idiot who needs to get a job and quit whining. I’m so sick of his storyline.

And it would be REALLY nice if a wedding could go off as planned in Port Chuck. At least let them get married.

I agree a thousand percent. I’ve been saying this for a long time now. There is no hype, no suspense. You just know that a wedding will never go as planned, that a baby will always be switched, that someone is never really dead, etc.

Okay, Timm and Cee Cee–that was when I was finally starting to warm up to Franco. When he sneered to Need-ya, “Who ever said anything about marriage?”
I laughed very hard. It didn’t help that Need-ya was wearing an amount of make-up one usually associates with Miss Baby Jane Hudson.
That was the highlight of yesterday’s abysmal show.
But I am sorry of Need-ya is sad–maybe she can write a “Letter to Daddy about it.”
Whatever happened to Phyllis?

Um, a resounding NOOOO!!!, CeeCee! I certainly do not desire our beloved Michael to be doomed to a rematch with Ms. Clay before he even has a chance to hit the ground running with a new character….let’s face it, there is simply a complete lack of chemistry between Easton and MS’s Nina….their pairing spelled the end of him the first time around. I’m hoping his new role will be a total departure from his last one…..other people, different orbits. However, I do believe that Franco needs to be cut loose from that existing partnership….he is not a happy camper in… Read more »

@Harry 1….I’m with you, Harry! “Need-ya?” Absolute perfection, as was the “Miss Baby Jane Hudson” reference. I don’t blame Franco for obviously getting ready to bolt this overbearing nutjob….in fact, she’s the one who should be leaving…town. Perhaps she could go to Africa or China in search of that adoptive baby about whom she can’t quit yammering.

I never received any thing from Mr. Fairman…..not personally, albeit I did apologize for mentioning Alexis cleavage. I have not said anything about THAT again….not specifically her…..none of us has.

GH knows how to do this type of story. It’s always leaving the viewer wanting more. Suspenseful and romantic and funny. I love GH for that reason alone. Each person in the invited guest list has a story. Nathan and Maxie, and the glove in the tux. Nina and Franco and his announcement of not liking weddings. Sam, Kristina and the other one whose name escapes me, hehe…great chemistry with Alexis. Nikolas and Hayden and their secrets and the back burn story of Sonny’s secret. Of course the main story is the gun running along with Morgan’s mental breakdown –… Read more »

I was glad that Alexis’s daughters spent some mom time before her wedding. Dianne at the house the other day with them was odd and disturbing.

Well, the music was piped in, the church looked cheesy and cheap and it was done in a studio. I know, budgets, budgets, budgets!

What TPTB have done to the once-interesting and complicated Kristina character is an unspeakable violation–and I am NOT talking about her being gay–I’m talking about the complete violation of her character–unrecognizable.

I hear you about Kristina, CeeCeeGirl. I was not happy to see this particular character once again portrayed as a nasty, immature, petulant, sullen little she-me. The previous Kristina was such an appealing sexpot….with the looks and wardrobe to match….it worked. To suddenly revise the character to this extent just isn’t very believable….I’m also tired of the over-emphasis upon Alexis and her daughters….they ain’t all that! Sam is quite one thing….she was an established character long before her unfortunate circumstance of birth was revealed….her story stands alone independent of her family, but the other two siblings and their ongoing sniping,… Read more »

They claim they didn’t feel Michael would have been safe with AJ…Ha! And, not only that, but AJ wasn’t “allowed” to go near Michael. Michael was brought up to hate him.

The glove made me think that maybe a girl Nathan once dated or with whom he had had a serious relationship ( in NYC) will show up in PC. You know the type….a socialite.

I think that Morgan should be sent to a psychiatric facility because his character serves no legitimate purpose on the canvas. He is entitled, spoiled, and does not contribute anything to his family, friends, or society. He is the worst combination of his parents and he needs to be sent away, off-screen, to find a purpose-schooling, a job, perhaps? The acting makes me cringe. The only time that I began to like the character was when he wanted to care for Avery. I thought that Bryan had begun to learn more of the craft and that storyline gave Morgan a… Read more »

I cant stand that Morgan became bi-polar over night . I have bi-polar in my family and Morgans behavior is not a text book representation.
I don’t care about Julexis, but I will applaud Nancy Lee on her acting job while saying her vows.
How many times does a drowning person get to go down before it’s a done deal. I always thought three. Seems that Lulu will keep going down and coming back up for air until dumbed down Dante (good aliteration I mus say) finally realizes she isnt on the deck but in the drink.

Hi Rebecca.I love Dante don’t get me wrong. It seems typical of writers to dumb down cops,detectives,special agents et al. (Once upon a time starting in 1980 when Scorpio, Sean Donelly , Anna Devane were introduced they were written as undeniably brilliant and we could count on them to save the day ) And I adore Dominic Z ..For me, his Dante elicits a sexy ‘Amante Italiano’- I wish they would write him a chance to shine.

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

Courtesy/ABC

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

Courtesy/ABC

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
