GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back!

Courtesy/ABC

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the return of Steve Burton, well, at least those memorable blue eyes, anyway.

As the mysterious story is mounting leaving viewers with questions and wanting to know the answers, Patient Six who in the facial reconstruction clinic in Russia, finally starts to take off all of the garb surrounding his face at the end of the episode. That is where the audience finally sees that underneath it all there are those big blue eyes … that are only Burton’s.

Previously, Ava (Maura West) decided to have a chitchat with Patient Six, and get emotional as she tells the patient about the good friend she once had, Nikolas Cassadine.  The man deemed by the clinic as a “dangerous psychopath” grabs her arm at the mention of Nik’s name.  Ava asks him to let go of her, which he does.

Then lo and behold in comes former Another World actress, Alla Korot, who we now know is involved in the Burton storyline.  Will she be a good nurse, a bad nurse, or turn out to be someone else, either trying to help Patient Six, or hurt him?

Back in Port Charles, viewers continue to see Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) lament over the horrific predicament their dear friend Jason is in.  Now on life support. Carly says he would never want this kind of life – to live hooked up to machines and to be placed in a long-term care facility.  Carly then comes to the conclusion that after Jason returned to Port Charles, they never got their connection back. Could it be Carly that is because that guy is not the real Jason?

Then there is Franco (Roger Howarth) who is trying to put the pieces together of the photograph from his childhood, where he is with a little boy who he thinks is Jason.  When he tries to question his mom who is in the picture with him, she tells him to meet her at her hotel room, so he leaves his gallery opening to meet with her.  When Franco goes to the hotel, his mother is gone. Leaving him with questions and no answers. Scott (Kin Shriner) follows Franco to the Metro Court, and tells him that he has known Jason his whole life, and insists the boy in the photo isn’t Jason.  Franco feels he would not have been the horrible person he grew up to be had the little boy been not taken out of his life at a young age, and viewers are continually reminded through story points and dialog that Franco was a very disturbed man.

So, what did you think of the reveal of Burton as Patient Six? Given the clues presented in the story thus far, who is Burton playing?  What will end up being the relationship between Franco/Billy Miller’s Jason/Steve Burton’s character? Weigh-in on your theories after yesterday’s episode below! But first watch a posting from Steve Burton on his social media accounts following yesterday’s airshow, as a special shout out and ‘thank you’ to the GH fans as the story kicks-off and he is home at General Hospital!

I’m sure I’m in a very small minority, but I want him to be a reconstructed Nikolas. Before Nikolas “died”, he was starting to show his Cassidine true colors. Maybe becoming Jason was part of his plan with Valentin to take over Sonny’s territory. How else can you get the full trust of Sonny? Being Jason is the only way. I know many say SB is the only “true” Jason, but this long lost twin thing is boring. The “hit by a car” Jason being switched before/during surgery to become the Billy Miller Jason is boring. FV says this story… Read more »

Most likely they are going to take the easy way out and use recycled scripts. Steve Burton will probably turn out to be Jason — not Nkolas.

As I am watching Y&R with Reed and Mattie, all I can see is those two running off to California just like Daniel and Lily did. Soaps just take the easy way out. It is too hard to come up with new ideas, apparently.

I’m with you. I’m done guessing AJ……getting headaches. I was so excited, at first, but, as it is the standard for me, the suspense wanes; especially when it makes no sense. What did I miss? By MrMask’s reaction to what Ava said, it would imply it is Nikolas….then, he unmasks himself and we see Burton—playing whom?? Jason the twin ( of Franco)? Nikolas? Or any other Cassadine. Perhaps the meanest Cassadine Liesl alluded to as Nathan’s father? Tiresome. I was surprised not to have seen a sacred illumination stars bursting over Burton’s head as MrMask removed the makeshift ‘iron’ mask…..which… Read more »

It is sad that people are so negative about Burton but it is completely understandable sgandable as to why. This anger is not aimed at him, it is aimed at the writers! Since 1996, lungless regimes have told the story of Jason the brain damaged murderer and his devotion to local mob boss Sonny. It was a neat idea with a shelf life of MAYBE a year, at which point Jason should have regained his memories, gone back to his family, became a doctor, and became the moral centre of GH. Instead, now 21 years later, recasts and plastic surgeries… Read more »

Yes and No. Burton, like many others declare they are done, retiring, what-have-you only to get BIG contract money and push other characters to the back burner or off the canvas all together. But it is like that WITH everything in life. Everybody wants a name. So many times the Yankees under Steinbrenner would go out and buy a big name who just did not gel with the team.

Everybody wants a name. That’s it. Burton will not last long. He will get bored or come up with some new get-rich-quick thing and will “retire.”

Right? Say, elm1951, since you mentioned the blue eyes ( big whoop), my theory above coud be feasible. That is, it may be Nikolas with a donor’s blue eyes….and other parts. Since this is a predominantly a facial-reconstruction facility, Nik’s face could have been damaged beyond recognition and Bronsky ‘fixed’ him up by re-arranging his face. LOL. I was baffled by Valentin sending Ava to Russia at first, but now it’s starting to make a little sense if what I assume is going on. Why not the US? We have some of the best plastic surgeons in the world. But,… Read more »

Still, as you state, this is a really curious choice of location for “plastic surgery shenanigans.” Guess Liesl’s Swiss clinic lost favor as the “go-to place” for all hijinks—of both the mental and physical variety—when she flew the coop!

It’s beginning to look like the storyline is not worth a cent, my friend. I was ‘hyped’ for a NY minute, elm1951; but not for Steve B….he’s not one of my faves. But, the writers are all over the place. There is no format; no rhyme or reason. I do hope there IS a light at the end of this headache. A plausible ending will do. I was infatuated with the idea of MrMask being Nikolas ( in the form of Nick Stabile) because I NEEDED Ava and Nik to resume what they had started: a true friendship on the… Read more »

Hey, Timmmy,
You are probably right….this ‘twist’ has gotten us talking for how long, now?? I guess it’s fun assuming and presenting different scenarios, until the situation gets so outlandish, we become indifferent: at least, I do…..in other words; whatever happens, happens.
The return of Nik will only be appreciated ( by moi) in the form of Nick Stabile….for Ava. LOL, are you tired of hearing me say that, yet?

To top it all off, I really wish I could hear what Jason/Billy and Sam were saying to each other. I know I’m not going deaf!!
Lordy Lord; how do they understand each other? Do they practice lip-reading? I want to scream and tear my hair out…

General Hospital has just surpassed As the Word Turns as the second longest televised US soap opera ever! And if it continues, GH will turn 55 on 04-01-18! Also, somewhere around that time should be GH’s 14,000th episode! Congratulations! If GH makes it to mid June of 2020 it will surpass Guiding Light’s television run!

Like AJ above, I may be in the minority with my thoughts on Steve Burton’s return as well; however, I do not care to see him in scenes with Monotone Sam. Honestly, more crying and delivering your lines in a monotone is not acting, IMO. I was hoping that Steve Burton would return as a doctor. For years, I wanted him to return to his Quartermaine roots, remember that he went to medical school, embrace his heritage, and come to terms with his mob life (leaving it behind). I was never a fan of Jasam (I or II) and I… Read more »

“Guttural grunts,” Patrick? LOL….you make Burton’s original recipe Jason sound like a complete Neanderthal! C’mon….he was never THAT bad…just a bit too non-verbal for those of us who actually enjoy characters who employ the use of regular dialogue and engage in the art of conversation! But I’m totally with you on the notion of turning the actor into a “Jason-faced” Prince Nicky….not a good fit in my book either!

I am sick to death of Carly and Sonny, too. The scenes of them in Jason’s hospital room talking to a bed were ridiculous-rehashed and just plain stupid. I don’t see them as a “super couple.” In my opinion, they are boring and trite.

Suddenly Sonny and Carly have become parents of the year……that, and the loving, ‘sturdy’ couple one wishes to one day be, Patrick. Astounding how these writers try to prop this out-of-Hades twosome. There is nothing salvageable about them. And, to add insult to injury, the word ‘Dad’ and ‘Son’ comes so easily from whimpy Michael’s and deflated mob-king Sonny’s mouths. It’s truly sickening. Then, there’s Sam…..wish I had understood what that monologue to her presumptive husband in hospital, was all about…..what was she rambling ??

If Ava sees #6 with his full face mask off, will she recognize him? We believe her only interaction with Original Face Jason was when she hit him with the car, supposedly requiring the plastic surgery that introduced Billy Miller.

For a brief while, she did live at the Q mansion, so she might have seen photos of Jason Q from years ago.

Satan

Let’s not forget that Ava and her kid were squatting in the Quartermaine mansion for a while (when she was fraudulently claiming the Twit was an heir) and that she’s also spent a fair amount of time at Sonny’s house since Avery was born.

Are we supposed to believe she’s never seen an old picture of Jason??

It would have been great TV if the viewers didnt know about Burton’s return but we did and it fell flat! I get a funny feeling this is a sign of what is to come, FLAT!

Agreed, Timmm. Fluke was just awful-too drawn out, creepy, and it fell flat. Making Paul Hornsby the serial killer made absolutely no sense. It was a quick way to just end the stupid storyline. Oh, and Man Landers-introducing more annoying characters to an already bloated cast-no thank you.

Exactly Timmm. ABC used a lot of valuable promo time for Steve’s return and gave a specific date to tune in. The target audience for a vet like steve is long time viewers who have tuned out. So you promote a specific day and not only do you give them the eyes 59 minutes in, but you give then an episode full of Franco. The audience who might come back for Steve would be comprised of many who tuned out because GH became unrecognizable, filled with new actors and characters favored by Frank as so many vets, like Steve, disappeared.… Read more »

GH , the Real GH use to burst from intense drama, intense moments, intruge and on the edge suspense.. Sadly GH has been gutted and has no way back to its’ glory because of the horrible writers.

Hey, T, Rethinking what you said, in a more serious and “focused” tone…… LOL. Jimh had mentioned that MrMask could be Morgan. Either he or Nikolas may be a candidate. I mean, Ava was attracted to them both. So, perhaps some force is pulling her towards this ‘thing’; vegetable, mineral, or animal—-some ” magnetic” part of Nik or Morgan must be embedded into MrMask by Dr. Bronsky. A medical experiment?

Facial reconstruction, dopplegangers, DNA switches, brain tumors that change your personality, people coming back from the dead, especially when they’ve been shot and fell into water (Morgan, Jason, Nicholas), lying to your spouse until it blows up in your face… the list goes on and is used on every show. Clearly they think their audience has a low IQ or they wouldn’t keep recycling and would try to something original.

I can’t remember-does BM’s Jason have any clear memories of life as a Quartermaine/his teen years? SB Jason doesn’t really correct? I started watching the show in 2007.

Vincent Irizarry Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

There will be a Deimos Kiriakias sighting next week on NBC’s Days of our Lives, and viewers will get to see Daytime Emmy winner, Vincent Irizarry, back in this bad boy role.

In story, MarDevil (Deidre Hall) decides its time to resurrect some of the Salem deceased, and from the looks of it will choose not so nice-ones to wreak a bit of havoc on the residents of the town.

As DAYS fans recall, back in 2017, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) killed Deimos when he set out to drug everyone at a major party with the hallucinogen Halo all in his effort to steal a a valued amulet.

Irizarry confirmed his return via Facebook by simply stating: “Heeeeere’s Deimos! 👿

Now, who else will be stirring up trouble from beyond the grave on Halloween week on Days? Share your thoughts below and if you are excited to see Vincent back in Salem for the spookiest time of the year!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
