GENERAL HOSPITAL: Patrick Is Devastated Over Emma's Near Kidnapping & Sam, Meanwhile Elizabeth & Sam Both Try to Mark Their Territory With Jason!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Monday’s episode of General Hospital provided many stellar two-person scenes and plenty of drama.  First, Sam (Kelly Monaco), is reeeling after having kissed and trying to jog her husband Jason’s (Billy Miller) memory after he visited her at the Drake house.  Later, she comes clean with her fiancé Patrick (Jason Thompson) about Jason’s visit.  When Patrick tries to cope and figure out what Sam was hoping for; was she hoping by kissing Jason that he would recall their lives together, Sam is conflicted and tries her best to answer the difficult question.  Clearly, Patrick knows that things just took a major nosedive in their relationship.

Next, Patrick is blindsided by a urgent phone call from Tracy (Jane Elliot), who stumbled upon a horrifying scene in the park.  Emma was about to be kidnapped by some woman who is clearly working for the people (Helena?) that are holding Robin (Kimberly McCullough) hostage in a lab/room somewhere, while she works on some mysterious medical cure.  Is it for Helena?  (Remember Nikolas’ (Tyler Christopher) claim to Jason within this episode? Could that be another lie, or the truth?) Robin from afar is watching the harrowing circumstance as her daughter fends over her kidnapper! When Patrick happens on the scene in the park, Emma is in tears, afraid, and upset.  Patrick is devastated.  Emma is also upset to learn that she may now lose another mommy since Sam and Patrick’s relationship might have just tanked, and she already had Robin leave her, too.  The scenes were played to perfection by Jason Thompson and Brookly Rae Silzer.   When Thompson leaves GH, this will be a major duo whose on-screen magic will not be captured or repeated again, and that is heartbreaking to think about.  Jason and Brooklyn portray the best father/daughter duo on daytime drama, period.

And in the first round of showdowns between Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  and Sam, the woman are both clearly letting each other know where they stand.  Elizabeth is trying to ensure that Sam will not push Jason to try to remember and let him be.  Of course, Sam does not know Liz has been conspiring for months and keeping her from her husband.  Liz stands firm that Jason is in love with her now.  Sam snaps back and let’s her clearly know that Jason is her husband,  and she is not going to let it go.  She wants Jason to rememember who he is, and then let him decide on an even playing field, if he loves Liz … or Sam?  This was also a very solid scene delivered by Rebecca Herbst and Kelly Monaco.

And then there was CarSon:  Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Laura Wright (Carly).  Sonny is now pushing Carly further and further away, and lashing out at her.  He is upset with her still for missing the custody trial for baby Avery, even though she brought Jason back to him in the process, and did not know about the moved up court date.  When Carly tries to have rails installed in the Corinthos house to assist Sonny to get around via his wheelchair, he is not having it.  Clearly, Ava’s  (Maura West) dispicable words to Sonny in the courthouse about him being less of a man has gotten to the mob boss.  As always, the CarSon scenes were nicely played by this dynamic duo.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Patrick and Emma? Sam and Elizabeth? Carly and Sonny?  Do you think Patrick and Sam are over and done for good?  Will you miss Jason Thompson’s scenes with Brooklyn? Who are you rooting for Jason to end up with … Elizabeth, or his wife Sam?  Share your thoughts on yesterday’s episode below!

Emma and Patrick were nothing short of amazing! Those tears were REAL! Their scenes made ME cry. BrookLynn is a good little actress, like her “mom” Kimberly was. I hope they never SORAS her, let her grow up on the show like Robin. She and Nicholas Bechtel will be quite the power couple one day! lol .. now as for Liz and Sam .. oh brother, they are really going to great lengths to make Liz the bad guy in this melodrama. Why don’t they just give her a mustache to twirl? I was never a big Jasammer or Liasonite,… Read more »

I totally agree that Jason Thompson and Brooklyn Rae Silzer have amazing chemistry! That said, I seriously doubt if she will be kept on the show once Jason Thompson leaves. There is not much incentive to recast his part, and with Kim temporarily returning, it is likely that the family will leave together. Supposedly, that was what was going to happen when Robin first returned, but Jason decided last minute to re-sign. Also, with Jossalyn being SORAS’s and Nicholas Bechtel getting a role on a Disney show, it makes sense for them to SORAS Spencer (Cam too, finally) in the… Read more »

That’s the one sour note in the Patrick-Emma storyline – viewers will not be able to see any more of BrookLynn Rae Silzer. She’s been amazing as Emma, and it’s too bad the career decisions of two older actors should impact her future on GH. I don’t want the character SORAS’d only to be stuck watching a generic teen actor. I’m sure BRS could find work anywhere, including primetime. But, she more than holds her own against the adult actors. She’s a rare find, and I’ll miss seeng her.

Patrick and Emma will most liking leave PC with JT leaving his role…they and Robin will probably reunite and Anna will help them go into hiding…i dont know about Sam-KM acts like she is in a coma…Liz?-she is ok…JasSonny-now there is a couple meant for each other…lol

I cannot add more to what y’all say about this amazing little actress. Suffice to say, she is truly a gifted actress. Yes, those tears were real.
I had read somewhere that little Emma will be living with Anna. This is just a rumor of course, but I hope it’s true.
I think Anna and Emma are things of beauty together.

Liz has got to be the most boring and annoying character on this show. The fact that she has been lying to the man she loves for months is disgusting. She also lied to her son Lil Jake recently just to hold on to Jake. How desperate she must be! It is absolutely pathetic! The fact that anyone can do that to a child just to hold onto a man should be shot!. Sam always loved Jason for who he was, she never tried to change him like Liz did. And Liz is still doing it by making sure he… Read more »

I agree, tatiana. Furthermore, I cannot believe the PTB are giving the impression of writing this character as partnering with Sam in the search for Jason. Since when has Liz become so adventurous? I find it so silly and obvious. Liz is afraid that once Sam finds Jason, the inevitable will happen. Both of these women are being written as men-chasing scatterbrained. What mother leaves her kids for such a venture? Leave the guy alone and let him do what he feels he must! Just sayin’.

I’m not going to get into a Liz vs. Sam debate, everybody has their own reasons for liking one or the other. I rooted for Liz & Jason way back when she first rescued him in the snow, and I was disappointed when Steve Burton returned and, instead of Liz, he married Courtney and then got involved with Sam, who I really didn’t like from day one. I really stopped caring after that. I’m not a fan of the mob, and I’ve always wanted Jason to remember who he REALLY is. But it never happened. Now I’m hoping he will… Read more »

I agree they are writing both these women as being stupid and desperate. Leave him be to figure things out already! In reply to maddie, they actually weren’t in love yet when she found out and decided to lie. It was at the Nurse’s Ball where she found out that Ric was lying to her and she found out about Jason. Previously to that, they were drawn to each other and only shared one kiss. The same way he was drawn to Sam when he couldn’t kill her and remembered kissing her. I am not necessarily in the Sam camp… Read more »

You can’t say Jake was JUST as drawn to Sam as he was to Elizabeth. He thought of Sam as a friend. He was crazy, WILD about Elizabeth! He was like a lost little puppy dog when Ric returned and he had to watch Liz be with him. Then when she finally dumped Ric, and they shared their first “date” and their first kiss, the whole Hayden thing happened. It was KILLING him not to be with Liz! “I’ve memorized your entire face”. The romantic things he would say to her! This was all before the lie started. Interestingly, yesterday… Read more »

I didn’t say just as drawn but you can’t deny that he was drawn to Sam but she was already with Patrick when he came back. She wasn’t available but Liz was and she helped him after his accident and his memory loss. It makes sense that he would fall in love with his savior. It doesn’t really mean anything as far as who he “should” and will be with in the long run. I can’t really comment on the romantic things he said to Liz because I had/have a hard time watching Jake and Elizabeth. They have zero chemistry… Read more »

I have to admit, when Jason first returned as Jake, I was surprised at his connection with Liz. I figured he would bond with Sam & Danny! Why Carlivati chose to go this route, I don’t know, because it’s very frustrating! Jake was just SO romantic with Liz, they won me over. Even though I KNEW he was gonna end up with Sam. Especially when Liz decided to keep his identity a secret. That just ruined it. But then they brought back little Jake! Why did they do that if he and Liz are over?! And OMG he is SO… Read more »

yes great scenes! We need to know the full story of what Robin is doing and who is holding her now. Like Jake’s story, this has gone on far too long. What about the hints that Jake really isn’t Jason? Where is Jake/Jason going on that motorcycle? Adding the twist that Jake may not be Jason after all the whoop-de-doo–not sure how I feel about that? It would turn it into an endless story that never gets resolved.

The acting and storylines on gh have done a 180 for the better. You have people bawling right along with Sam. Emma is breaking my gh loving heart. Here’s the problem GH has gold right now. They need to out Liz. They have the ratings going up! for months we have watched this woman destroy everyone with her lies including little Emma. So consequences. Liz needs to pay not only from Sam. And the these writers know how to write consequences hello Sharon on y and r. Still in a coffin not even bi polar can redeem her. The affect… Read more »

Liason fans will refuse to link Liz to Emma’s pain until Patrick has a chance to articulate it directly to her face. How could Liz hide the truth & allow the charade to continue knowing that Sam could never be Emma’s mother if she discovered Jason was alive? Of course, Liz’s self-serving defense will be that her lies were better because it gave him & Sam a chance to “move on.” But, Patrick has experience with that from the other end

I like the way Sam is playing this. Bottom line, he husband is alive, Liz, watch out and Patrick, sorry but crap happens! Not fair to Patrick but if this brings him and Robin back together and gives Emma HER family unit, so be it. Send them off and lets see what happens down the road. I like all three but with Robin gone so much, it just didnt make sense. BTW, Patrick should NEVER leave Emma with Spenser again! His family are nuts and the limo driver needs his azz whipped for leaving a little kid alone in the… Read more »

The bit with Spencer leaving Emma alone was ridiculous….unless it’s been Nikolas all along who is keeping Robin, & arranged to have Chandler pull Spencer away & set up Emma. Some say that would be too dark for Nikolas. But, isn’t he the guy who put out a hit on his lover? Threatening to abduct a child isn’t that far from arranging for Hayden’s head to be blown off.

Great theory about Nick having Chandler leave on purpose. Nick may be taking over for Helena? I cannot imagine Nick doing this to Robin but Nick might just be embracing his heritage and playing the male role of uncle Stephan?

Jason will, at first, play with the Q’s for revenge on Nicolas, and be a bit torn between Jason M and Jason Q but he will without a doubt be back home with Sonny..

Like Kansas Guest, I have no dogs in this fight. However, Lizzy is acting beyond obnoxious.
That said, when Sam ordered Lizzy out of “her” house, I was so hoping Lizzy would have countered back, “You mean, Robin’s house?”
See, Robin would never have left her family willfully if not for the possibility of saving Sam’s husband.

Boo hoo Patrick is upset because Sam kissed Jason– at least she had the decency not to kiss him in front of him, unlike Patrick who kissed Robin when she came back with his bride to be standing right there. That said, those scenes in the park were very good, and I will miss those genuine father daughter moments, because most of the other children in town are not even noticed by their parents.

I am sad that Patrick is leaving the show but i hope it is a sweet send off with him and Emma going to Robin and living “happily ever after” 🙂 Patrick and Emma have the best father daughter connection and it is so real to watch. He is great with her. I can’t wait to see how Elizabeth deals with Sam and Jason finding their way back together.

They will ride back together to Port Charles to his wife Sam. He will find out about how Elizabeth knew who he was from the beginning and decided selfishly to keep him in the dark….. Patrick, Robin and Emma will leave and become residents somewhere in Europe. In as much as, Elizabeth think Jason is happy with her he is not. Jason was happy with Sam and… Read more »

Best to make Liz the bad guy for awhile and Sam the saint.

It seems not to really work the other way around. Liz was never developed when she was trying to be a good girl. All roads lead to Sam and Jason. Break Liz in two and then rebuild her…better and stronger.

These incredibly tender moments between Jason and Brooklyn R especially touching….
Seems to me Nicolas has more too hide than meets the eye.
Elizabeth’s desperation is showing, if she isn’t careful Sam & Carly will start to notice.
Jason should stay away for a few more days, it may just be the push Elizabeth needs
to come clean…her day of reckoning is around the corner.

I think those father and daughter tears were so very genuine, Fanny. They are both aware of Jason’s/Patrick’s impending exit and possibly Emma’s, as well….so, it will be such a sad moment for them; they’ve been working together how long? For a while, I take it? Bonne nuit, ma belle amie.

Again, and still throughout countless regimes, Sonny remains an abusive, violent, self pitying crybaby who only cares about himself. I have never, and will never, get the appeal of this character. If a woman looked like Laura Wright/Carly, and had the fierce attitude of Carly, that would be the day she would put up with that crap. Does she, or ANYONE in the audience or on the writing team, remember that 2 short years ago, Sonny threatened to have her murdered?? Now there’s romantic foreplay for you! It is disgusting and disturbing to watch. Sonny deserves to be alone and… Read more »

I only saw the part with Emma and the stranger danger. great job teaching a child to fight if someone tries to grab them . Liz and Sam both have their fans. why not send them to find Jason and have Faison really finish the job he started. Kill him for real , in front of these two and no more fighting over him. a murdering killer loved and wanted by these two mothers. ??? While Faison is at it, he could also take out Sonny. Maybe then I WOULD WATCH AGAIN.

The past two weeks on GH has been loaded with great performances.

Wright, Benard, West, Hughes, Miller, Monaco, Herbst, Thompson, and Brooklyn have been excellent.

Honestly, that scene with Ava and Sonny in the courtroom where she was baiting him into threatening her, was quite possibly the scene of the year on any soap. The person who wrote West’s dialog for that scene should get a raise but my god West was brought the words to life with a incredible performance.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
