GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas Takes Down Valentin And Ava Has A Surprise Announcement

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s did-not-disappoint episode of General Hospital, long-awaited confrontations, and shockers were the order of the day that gave cast members: Genie Francis (Laura), Cynthia Watros (Nina), James Patrick Stuart (Valentin)and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas)and palette to shine on, and that they did.  Add to that, a surprising twist featuring Maura West (Ava)and you had great performances all around.

In story, in the middle of Valentin and Nina’s wedding, bursting through the doors of Wyndemere is a water-soaked Nikolas with Ava in his arms.  Next, a stunned Laura runs over to her son. Meanwhile, Ava accuses Valentin of trying to kill her and he throws back to all in attendance that she was drunk. Nikolas triumphantly tells Valentin that he is about to lose everything. Nikolas explains that he has Mikkos’ codicil and it gives the entire Cassadine estate to him. Valentin says he is lying, but Nikolas says that Valentin is Helena’s bio-son and not a Cassadine!

As the two men throw barbs at each other, Laura and Lulu  (Emme Rylan) get Nikolas out of the room,  Next, Valentin turns to Nina and he has figured out she knew about Nikolas. It is then he realizes, she planned to hurt him as payback at their wedding. Nina admits to Valentin she knows the truth about Sasha (Sofia Matteson) and his entire part in the cover-up and deception, and Liesl (Kathleen Gati) told her about the DNA tests. Nina reveals that if he’d only told her the truth, he could have put a stop to what has become of the wedding … a sham.  Valentin admits to Nina that he just may not have the skill set to love her.

Now we turn to Nikolas, as he tells his family how he survived Valentin’s gunshot over three years ago.  He tells Laura, Lulu ad Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), how in discovering the truth about the will, he had to be very strategic on how he would return and how best to make his move to ensure that he beat Valentin.  Just then, Laura slaps her son and reads him the riot act for what he did to his son, Spencer, and how she had to put him in a boarding school in another continent to keep him safe.  Laura says she hates Valentin, but what he has done pales in comparison to what Nikolas did to his own son for the price of revenge.

Then, Ava interrupts the group and announces that she and Nikolas are getting married tonight, and that they have to get ready for the ceremony, to which Laura and Lulu are absolutely stunned.  Fade to black.

Valentin is da`man!!
It has just begun.
to say Nilkolis has taken down Valentin is ridiculous.
Valentin has game he will survive, easily.
Helena would advise;
never ever discount Valentin, ever.

((of course, it depends on the writers, how they can screw it all up ahaa))

Admittedly one of the best episodes in many moons. Terrific work from Genie and from Cynthia Watros who, for me, has finally assimilated Nina’s character. Typical idiocy from the Port Charles PD believing the man over the woman (Ava just decided to jump off the balcony for a midnight swim?). But I’m leery of all the threats flying; I want to see action. As far as Ava & Nikolas as a couple… I’m not there yet. And the teenage romance quadrangle? I thought summer was over!

i was wondering about the Sasha/Nina story-who was her father…wouldnt it had been Finn??? but he want involved in that story!!!

It would have been Silas Clay, I believe. And he was murdered by Madelaine, if I remember correctly. But both characters have been played by Michael Easton.

Maybe it’s just me, Jim, but I’m totally confused right now regarding who Sasha is or isn’t. I guess that comes from too many of those dime-a-dozen paternity tests floating around.

Hey, Soaphound, I am in love with Nikolas—not because he’s so handsome, but because it’s ” different strokes for different folks”—his entire demeanor does it for me. I like the way he interacts wth his mother, as well–yes, the hurt is there—-will prabably always be there, but the friction will dissipate eventually. A mother’s love forgives and it’s irreplaceable. I think he and Ava are perfect for each other—-the tension only magnifies the “buried” attraction. Ava’s vengeance, if one can call it that, is a ploy on the writers’ part—a technique, if you will. Teen age love!!! Ahhhh!! How long… Read more »

Ever since Dan OConnor name started appearing at the end of October it’s been so good. Hes 33 and the youngest head writer in GH history. I am literally on the edge of my seat.

Dan OConnor is the best new head writer in the biz. Hes only 33 years old btw. Since his name came in credits two months ago the show is a thrill ride. Last two episodes of GH were complete total fire. Theres something fresh about his writing. Anyone else notice a difference since Dan came on?

I didn’t think changing co-head writers would make that much of a difference in the show, but it certainly has. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it the last several months. I had no idea Dan O’Connor was that young. That was a brilliant decision to promote him, get a younger, fresh perspective in the head writer position, someone that has never been a head writer before, rather than recycling the same names from show to show, like we see so often on soaps. Bravo to Chris and Dan, they’ve gotten GH on fire again. The way it should be. They have… Read more »

Good show but going back to Nina…during the Nina /Sasha story why wasnt Finn involved-wasnt he the father???

So Val the Bastard is still a bastard but he ain’t the bastard we all thought he was??

Helena had a side piece while Mikkos was off trying to freeze the world?

Let me guess…. Faison. Since he & Helena obviously knew each other well, why not in the “biblical” sense?

Which makes Val & Whiny Heiny brothers. And I’d actually buy that before I would buy Val being Alexis’s brother, so why the Hell not?

That doesn’t mean either one of them need to stick around long term though. Especially not Heiny!

I love how both Anna & Nina reacted to Valentin with her emotions. Made you feel sorry for Valentin. Is Anna really in love with Valentin? I am hoping Valentin has a plan.

GH has been very good. the elephant in the room is the new actor that plays Nick. He is too young, has no chemistry with Laura and the actor is only average. What they should have done is have Tyler Christopher crash Nina’s wedding, holding Ava in his arms. THAT would have been a shock to us viewers. Why not hire Tyler back and support someone who has issues and his GH friends would be there for him, as well. BUT, Hollywood doesnt give many second chances. And by the way, Ava falls off the balcony, Nick just happens to… Read more »

Amen, Timm! The new Nick hissing four or five words at a time is driving me crazy. Maybe the slap LUra gave him will get him to spit it out in sentences instead of disjoined phrases. The poor guy even pauses for commas, while acting frienzed and frantic. He has to be exhausted at the end of his scenes. I sure am. He’s a handsome young fellow, but not a good fit for this part. He’s just too young. Put in the work and sort yourself out and get back to work, Tyler Christopher. Your loyal fans and GH kingdom… Read more »

Nora, I think the powers that be got too caught up in his looks and didnt listen to his delivery close enough. Oh well, what do we do? Nice comment about Tyler. I wish him the best!

Timmm, I totally see where you’re coming from. I’m still giving MC a chance to claim the role. It seems to take some longer than others to “fit in”. But when I compare his scenes to the brilliant work of Mark Grossman on Y&R (also dropped into a tough recast position), I start to worry. In no time, Grossman claimed Adam Newman as his own character and is consistently excellent. But Marcus seems very self-conscious, as extremely good-looking people often are. My advice is to watch himself on tape and try to tone down the tics (the lip pursing is… Read more »

I will give him time. It was just such a big return with mainstream characters involved and there just isnt a lot of time to learn the role that EVERYONE is focusing on. Like you said, Mark Grossman nailed the role and has chem with everyone over at Y&R.

brian,
I maintain that this new Nic looks too young is because he is! T.C is older and was more appropriately suited to Ava and Laura both .Aren’t these women about the same age?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
