On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the relationship between Professor Parker Forsyth (Ashley Jones) and Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) became a tad more clear, or did it?
Parker, who has shown up at the Davis home, confronts Kristina on her smear campaign against her. When she first arrives she even meets Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), and realizes Kristina has not told her mother that she was suspended from school. That sets the stage for innuendos and more! Both women admit they’ve gone to great lengths to protect their secrets that would threaten their lives. Parker goes on to say to Kristina, “I admit it. I have a good life. I have a career, and a home, a wife … I don’t want to lose it. ” Kristina’s comeback is, “Yet, here you are!”
Next, Parker reveals: “I agreed not to talk to your parents, and you agreed not to talk to my wife. But did you think these negative comments on the Professor Review website would go unnoticed?” Parker believes Kristina was behind them citing: “A student disgruntled on her grades attempts to seduce me for better marks, and then said student when she was rightly served with a suspension starts a smear campaign …” Kristina fires back “First, you accuse me of propositioning you, now of trolling you. Which is it?”
Viewers learn that the duo met after hours and shared some scotch, and that Parker admitted to Kristina that her needs weren’t being met at home. Parker still stands firm: “Kristina, You did proposition me!” Kristina: “Because you wanted it!”
Before she leaves, Parker tells Kristina it would be a shame to throw her life away on a single folly when she had just so much potential. Then she remarks that Kristina better figure out what she wants and who she wants to be, before her parents figure it out for themselves.
So, what did you think of the confrontation scene between Parker and Kristina? Do you think Kristina was just trying to seduce Parker to help her grades, but she is not really interested in women … or, do you think Parker’s final message to Kristina before she left rings true, and that Kristina better figure out who she truly is?
