GENERAL HOSPITAL: Olivia Jerome Revealed, Naxie's Nuptials, Anna Has A Jarring Flashback!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital had the character of Julian Jerome (William deVry) in a tailspin.

He is becoming quite clear, via the events that are unfolding in his life, on who is behind the car bomb meant for him that killed Morgan, and who was responsible for his young son, Leo being taken to GH in an emergency situation. As Julian is about to come clean with Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Billy Miller) at GH, and after Sam presents Julian with a photo of  a young boy who she believes is him, the mobster says that everything that has happened has to do with family. As it turns out, Ned (Wally Kurth) saved Leo from taking aspirin when a bottle was left open and brought him to GH where Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) was beside herself.

Rudge meets the lady in red in their new location and reveals that a special message is being sent to Julian for not killing Jason. At the end of the episode, Julian back peddles on divulging the truth of who was behind the car bomb to JaSam and leaves hastily from GH.  Later, Julian bursts through the front doors of the location Rudge and his boss are in. Out from the shadows and the desk, comes none other than Olivia Jerome (Tonja Walker) alive and well, where she says to brother  Julian: “If you can’t make time for family, who can you make time for!”

Elsewhere, Naxie finally got married!  Yes, there was a pesky interruption via Liesl (KathleenGati) at the ceremony. However, we did have Mac in tow (John J. York) walking Maxie down the aisle.  When word came that Lucy Coe was delayed getting back to Port Charles, the nuptials came to a screeching halt.  But with Spinelli in attendance (temp recast, Blake Berris) and Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) good memory that Spinelli officiated Sam and Jason’s wedding, he could actually make their union valid.  A skittish Spinelli doesn’t want to jinx anything for the happy couple, but reluctantly, and then happily agrees to officiate their ceremony.  During their personal vows, fans of the couple were treated to a montage of the history of their relationship.   In the end, Maxie and Nathan finally tied the knot.  As the reception began, Spinelli looked wistful, surely a part of him was sad to see Maxie move on with Nathan, although he supports their union.

During the wedding, Anna (Finola Hughes) who is a guest as is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), has a startling flashback where a man says to her “I waited so long for this!”  She looks shocked as she inches closer and closer to her connection to Valentin.

So, what did you think of the Olivia Jerome reveal? What were your thoughts on Maxie and Nathan’s nuptials?  What do you think is the connection between Anna and Valentin? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

Olivia Jerome reveal was the worst kept secret on a soap EVER!! It was clear the moment we heard the name Otto Jessups that Olivia was alive and on her way back.

It only made sense that Tonja reclaim the role of Olivia Jerome. It’s an interesting twist and while I’m not a huge fan of Ms. Walker’s work, I look forward to seeing her take on Olivia in 2017. Plus, seeing her go up against Maura West’s Ava should be a fun present to see them go head-to-head. As for Anna’s flashback… not sure what it has in store. I have my ideas, but I am waiting for them to pan out. Maxie and Nathan’s wedding was cute but, I have to admit, Blake Berris simply does not fit the role… Read more »

The story lines are way to slow! Really board. It took weeks for the Olivia reveal, but no suprize really. The Nell and Anna stories are dragging. The Charlotte /Valentine/Lulu story is boring. Where are Laura and Kevin? They share I love yous a month ago and now nothing?! I have watched for 40 years and I have never been so board.

Well said, Suz. Things for a while on GH were almost moving too fast. Now the writing is moving storypoints way too slowly, to the point of boredom. The focus is still storypoints involving crime, so Laura and Kevin aren’t a priority. And the Charlotte/Valentine/Lulu story is way too predictable. Valentine probably has his ex tucked away someplace, if he didn’t kill her. Way too predictable…

I do agree Laura and Kevin should be a priority, but they’re not because the writers are drawn to writing about crime, not love. I’m surprised GH’s name hasn’t been changed to “General Mafia”. The writers have lost sight of love and relationships being the focus. It’s become about violence and revenge, sadly.

I thought it was the first interesting episode for me in a very long time. I think the writers are wise to mine Gh history to help develop Julian/Olivia storyline. I’m not a huge fan of Nathan & Maxie, but even I am a sucker for a sweet montage of their relationship. I feel GH has some promising storylines in the works, I hope they keep it up. I stopped watching for awhile because it was so boring, but things are finally more interesting…I’m even willing to go along with the Lulu/Valentine storyline just because it helped jumpstart a meandering… Read more »

Wondering why they did the montage; montages are usually done when the character(s) is/are leaving. ????????

KansasGuest
Guest
KansasGuest

The main issue with the montage for me was that I could really see that it’s not my imagination that Kirsten Storms has become less expressive as Maxie over the past year. I don’t know what is going on. But, I don’t think it’s skin issues. Her face is not moving. When she was in that scene in Nina’s office with four women around her, they all looked more excited to be getting married than Maxie. Storms didn’t/couldn’t do more than lift the corners of her mouth to mimic a weak smile. 2 years ago, Maxie was much more animated.… Read more »

I really like bringing back Olivia…but hopefully not for too long. There isn’t enough room on the show for another evil person. Can’t have Sonny and Julian both being good guys protecting their families…it gets way too repetitive. Please enduldge me a bit: In my humble opinion….. I like the Valentin story line…but I have to admit, I’m not liking the actress who play’s LuLu. She’s seems to have only one emotion no matter happy or sad. Knowing that she is a “Spencer” she just doesn’t have it. There are so many who could pull off Lu Lu, like the… Read more »

Why on earth would they incorporate characters from two cancelled soaps into the fabric of GH it makes absolutely no sense. What are these characters supposed to do. Have a pine valley llanview bus trip that breaks down in Port Charles and they all decide to take up residence??? It’s enough to work with what they have. Not add pointless characters just because people miss them.

I just hope this Anna revelation is not a huge disappointment, but I have zero confidence in these 2 “women” writers. I have a feeling that this whole Anna story will mess with established history and we are talking 35 year history. These writers seem to be obsessed with rape and sexual assault on women and making women characters on this show to be victims all the time. The whole reincarnation of Olivia Jerome is to redeem Julian and Im ok with that, but again these writers continuously painted Julian into a horrible corner where he assaulted his wife and… Read more »

I love how they’re getting Julian out of the mess they’ve written him into. Julian is a great character; DeVry a good actor and I don’t want to see “either” written off. I think they can very easily explain away his actions with this storyline. I’ve said all along he never would have hurt her and I’m willing to suspend my disbelief to believe that he was “acting” … knowing he was being watched when he ran after Alexis with the knife. Probably would have somehow whispered to her to play along…we’ll never know because Sonny stepped in. Works for… Read more »

Rebecca, I see your point but I do wish the writers would stop creating these messes and then come in with a Brawny quicker picker upper to clean up the mess of their own making. Why make Julian try to kill Alexis in the first place? And at the time he was trying to kill her he had a look of dark menace on his face. He truly wanted to kill her–the viewers knew it and William DeVry played it that way. Indeed, he said in an interview that Maurice Benard gave him some advice on how to go the… Read more »

The show’s been on for decades, stories will be recycled, test our limits, have us go at each other…as we know from experience, ahem…it’s all good fun to me.

I think the writers changed their original plan for Alexis and Julian. They got so much flack from fans wanting them together, that they then added the sister Olivia threatening Julian plan, allowing Julian to tell Alexis eventually (,after turning her into a lush,)” sorry honey, my devil sister made me do it!” He’s still slime to me, but the writers are for once going with the majority that want these two together.

It will be fun to see Tonja back as Olivia Jerome for awhile. Two thoughts: 1) Kinda weird that there will be two characters on the canvass named Olivia. 2) This had BETTER NOT IN ANY WAY push my beloved Maura/Ava into the background.

I don’t think Maura/Ava will be pushed into the background unless she wants off. They know (or at least I hope they know) that they struck gold with her.

griffin

My sentiments exactly. Maura/Ava is one of the best things about GH and the main reason I watch it. I don’t think they will push her aside though because they know they have a talented actress with her, one who always gives 110% of herself to the role. I don’t think they would want her to leave.

Well we all knew the Dragon Lady was Olivia! I give GH credit for putting some effort into Maxie’s wedding. Georgie was cute as a button! The Spinelli recast is horrible! Remember when soaps were popular and the network put effort into their shows. I knew Jack Wagner wouldnt show but back in the day they would throw a twist at you and Frisco would have appeared!

Especially all the evil she has done to Duke, Robert, Robin, Lulu &Dante, etc, etc, how she can work or run a hospitol in Port Charles is ludicris. She should be in prison.

I think he went from bad to worse!

I do like Dr. O/Gati being part of GH, but have never bought into her position(s) at the hospital. Wish they could give her a more “believable” (a weird word to use about a soap character) villainess role. More interesting than all the mob/Sonny/Jerome stuff. Can’t imagine how Anna and Robin must have felt seeing her at the wedding after all the grief she and Faison put them, Robert and Duke through at the clinic in Switzerland.

Thats just it Rose, Liesel has hurt so many on the show she just doesnt belong. She should have ran off with Faison.

Well I was a tad disappointed because one the MAJOR moments of this saga took place off screen– the moment Julian discovered the sister he had killed was still alive– I knew Olivia was the lady in red, but I wasn’t certain Julian did, so I was looking forward that reveal– but based on the way it ended it seems Julian already knows– so the reveal of his finding out the truth will either been done via fake flashback or not at all– flashbacks never are as satisfying as the actual moment As for the wedding— don’t even get me… Read more »

The Olivia Jerome /Julian Jerome story smacks of another story being made up as it goes along. I remember when the reason for Julian’s actions was that he was being controlled by “Fluke”. At that time the exact same chain of events was portrayed. GH is really hampered by the mob stories and mob connections. The biggest failing of the show is that of the writers’ inability to construct a compelling, consistent story arc with a beginning, middle and payoff. You can’t wing this stuff. Long live GH!

Couldn’t agree with you more. Some of the overall ideas are good i.e. a hospital murder mystery but it was made up as they went along and designed to kill off extraneous characters and retool a mish mash of couples, recurring characters and some of Carlivati’s dummy moves. What if they had built the Hayden reveal, tied it to Jeff Webber, brought Jeff back and Sarah, gave Monica her job back, killed off a few characters but tie the murder to the hospital ala Phil Brewer.

I can’t wait to see the original Jerome mob princess get reacquainted with Julian, Anna, Lucy and getting to introduce herself to Ava, Sonny, and Griffin. Must see scenes are on the horizon when Olivia crosses paths with those six. Bring it on!

I resent like hell that Felicia and Mac are trotted out for Maxie’s wedding when they have not been given a story line in over 10 years. They are the heart and soul of the show and they both look fabulous and seem to be somewhat ageless. Meanwhile, the pointless Nina is force fed into almost every story and seems to have a larger role in her son’s, er, I mean, her brother’s wedding that Felicia does.

Brad and Lucus saving each other from death, good stuff.
If, J&S had a working imagination it could have been awesomely different to have Lacus and Brad in a leading story instead of the same old players dominating every single story.

Is there a chance the WU’s are helping”finance” Olivia J? How else could she afford to live in exile, and then have the money to stage a comeback against Julian? And WU’s found a perfect ally to help get rid of Julian and maybe Sonny in the bargain. I don’t usually like crime and violence all of the time, but in this case I’m kinda looking forward to a limited turf war. As a bonus it presents the possibility Brad and Lucas will get to be part of a much bigger story than they usually get. Plus it’s more exotic.… Read more »

Lulu’s always impulsive, and it always gets her in trouble. Many times she doesn’t consider how other’s feel about her actions or how it will effect them. Remember the trip to Canada with Dillon to help find Luke or Lucky (?). Why tell Dante??? What about Rocco??? But “hey,” she’s a Spencer like her Dad which gives her an excuse. Yes, I get bored with her, too. On the other hand she was more recently a prisoner of Valentin’s on the Cassadine Island and saw Nik killed and a Kevin shot.

Another fail on the part of Jean and Shelly was the photo of Julian that Jason found — it’s clearly a photo of young William deVry which makes no sense since it was established that Julian was given plastic surgery for his new identity as Derek Wells in exchange for his testimony against the mob.

For all the negativity, you have to admit Thursday was a fantastic episode. The heartwarming moments with Mac (yes, he needs to be used more), real flashbacks (Anna/Olivia) and fake flashback (Anna/Quasi-Valentin) were great for long time viewers.

I’ll even overlook the contrived rehash of Olivia’s obsession with Duke. Upon her “death” 25 years ago, she found love and happiness with Colton Shore (Lucy’s cousin and Felicia’s ex-boyfriend). Anything to have Tonja Walker back on screen.

Violet Lemm

That woman is obviously insane with all her photos of herself with Duke, including one with herself in a wedding dress, which looked like it had been cut, and put together with his. Julian actually acted sympathetic towards her. I guess, in some cases, blood is thicker than water!

I think there is a possibility that perhaps at one time Anna and Valentine were lovers. Maybe he even proposed to her and something went horribly wrong in the relationship causing her to blot hate him, thus blotting things associated with him out of her memory.

The ep on Thursday, Jan 19, seemed to be a crowd pleaser for all fans. There were some awesome, sweet touches to the wedding that have been overlooked in previous weddings and the Jones/Devane/Scorpio/Lavery clans have been overlooked as well. So I was happy to see that the entire ep was about them, except perhaps for Sam and Liz, from Valentin showing his true self finally as he punched out a drunk Griffin and suffered a bit of a breakdown in front of Anna to the return of Olivia Jerome (aka as Liv it seems LOL) and her dashing onscreen… Read more »

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

General Hospital Shifts Production Restart Date

On Friday, ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital has now determined to push back their production restart date given the escalating number of cases of the coronavirus as the pandemic has worsened in Los Angles County.

According to Deadline: “GH is now targeting the week of July 20 to resume taping. The situation remains fluid as new infections have been soaring in Los Angeles.”

General Hospital was previously eyeing a return to production this coming Monday on July 13th, before the COVID-19 outbreak saw a spike in numbers.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
