GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter Kidnaps Louise and Escapes, Timing Puts a Wrecking Ball to Carly & Sonny’s Marriage

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought it with some very juicy cliffhangers.  One again, Peter August (Wes Ramsey) lives to see another day, escapes the cops, and goes on the run with his daughter, Louise in tow!

This all goes down after Peter is being transported to Pentonville for his crimes.  But the van crashes, (when actually it was a set up – the tires were punctured). Mac  (John J. York) and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) are on the scene, and then they get shot at. Mac is severely injured, Dante not so much, but both are taken to GH.

Meanwhile, after Austin (Roger Howarth) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) kiss, he is very suspicious of Maxie’s intent because it’s now all out in the open that he knows what happened the night Louise was born and given to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) to take care of.

At the Q’s, Brook Lynn and Chase (Josh Swickard) are fighting their attraction to one another, then nearly giving in with a big kiss, when the phone rings for Chase. It’s Dante from the hospital telling him that Peter escaped.  When Chase relates this to Brook Lynn, she freaks and hightails it to the nursery and wouldn’t you know .. Bailey AKA Louise is gone!  The final shot of the episode is Peter with Louise telling her nothing will ever keep them separated again!

While all this is playing out, Sonny (Maurice Benard), decked in white tuxedo with new wedding bands for he and Carly (Laura Wright), is waiting for his wife to show up for his planned night with her at the Haunted Star.  Sonny wants to show Carly how much he loves her. Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) finds Sonny on the deck and is concerned for her dad, but reassures him that Carly will see the lengths he has gone too, in order to make a perfect evening for her. Sonny tells Kristina he just wants to make things right between them.

 

But thanks to Kristina’s interpretation of a call she places to Carly, she literally drives a wrecking ball into the marriage of her father and Carly.  An upset Kristina tells Carly, who is on the bridge talking with Drew (Cameron. Mathison), trying to determine if she should meet Sonny at the Haunted Star, that Sonny is waiting for her, and will be heartbroken if she doesn’t show up and to just meet him half way, and listen to what he has to say.  Carly says “She can’t do this right now.”

Drew, who is now the new sounding board for Carly, since Jason is “dead”, tells Carly that although she needs time and space from Sonny, and he understands she is justified in feeling that way, he believes this is all a cry for help from Sonny.  If she goes to meet him, she’s not caving in to what Sonny wants, but throwing him a lifeline.

Next, Kristina heads back to the boat to be there for Sonny and tells him Carly’s not coming to meet him and that she is not willing to meet him half-way.  Then, Kristina heads to Charlie’s where none other than Liesl (Kathleen Gati) overhears her on the phone telling someone that Sonny’s alone. Liesl next informs Nina (Cynthia Watros), who she had been talking with at the bar, and Nina decides to head to the Haunted Star.  Later, Nina shows up and Sonny sees her.

At the hospital, Felicia (Kristina Wagner) tells Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that things don’t look good for Mac, and he is headed into surgery and Austin tells Maxie that Peter is out there somewhere as he has escaped being transported to prison.

My dog Cerberus really misses his favorite chew toy. Somebody needs to send Whiny Heiny back to Hell NOW. And send Nina down with him, as she no longer serves any useful purpose. If you tell her Nelle is down here, she’ll probably go voluntarily.

Neither serves any purpose, and hell is where they both belong.

Well. You Devil, you—looks like ( as I knew would happen) Sonny/Mike and Nina are hooking up. Fake Drew( his and Sam’s inaudible, weird voices so make me want to scream), and stomp-stomp Carly will also be a couple. Oh, Carly—you’re accusing Sonny of loving both you and Nina—-well, you’ve been doing the same throughout your entire marriage to mini-me. There has been a third person hanging in the shadows—Jason. He will return. Then what? A threesome again? You, Drew and Jason. ‘Round and ’round we go. Same boring circle; same boring story; different boring guy. I would think that… Read more »

I’d like to see a scene where Peter had to first go to Target to spend about $1000 bucks on baby gear for the baby he’s about to kidnap. His kid. Does he have a car seat? Diapers? Wipes? Bottles? (I’m assuming he can’t breastfeed! Lol!) Crib? Stroller? Pacifier? Baby clothes?
Of course not. Unless he stole the entire Q nursery along with the baby?

This isn’t a cliffhanger; they’re fun. This is an extension of pain. Peter outlasted his welcome, and meager acting ability, years ago. This is frustration on the highest level– Peter wins again! In a pandemic, I don’t need more depression, thank you. The only bright spot: Dante is front & center at yet another PC Police/WSB screw-up. Given Peter’s litany of crimes and his association with Mr. Cassadine, the National Guard should have been there. Of course, Chase and Brook Lynn will be blamed. More boredom! Even so, it’s better than manic Sonny’s Cheshire Cat grin. Ugh!

If Sonny was on his meds and reational, he could finf Peter and bring justice for Maxi and Louise. Nina should stoo listening to everyone oushing to Sonny and if he wants her he will reach out. Caryl. Should get off her high horse and just listen long enough to Sonny and stop punishing him for being Mike, at least Mike had amnesia and didn’t sleep with Nina. Caryl had just as many feelings for Jasin as Mike had for Nina.
Who really can’t see through Victor and Esme?

BLQ & Chase were at Jax’s beach house – not the Q mansion.

Why weren’t Mac or Dante wearing bulletproof vests?

Best part of episode was closing cast credits that no longer had Wes Ramsey listed in contract section. Hopefully that means Heinrik’s reign of ridiculousness is nearing its completion.

I believe that 99% of the audience is sick to death of Peter August and want him dead and gone forever. Why do TPTB keep on insisting on having him win all the time? Wes Ramsey really ought to have grown a mustache to twirl as he now resembles a silent film villain ready to tie a woman to railroad tracks. He has way past his expiration date. Personally I wish they would do a “Murder on the Orient Express” ending for Peter, with everyone taking turns killing him once and for all – and getting away with it with… Read more »

I’m done. The Peter story line is maddening. Can’t stand the character nor stand the the actor. He isn’t a good actor, he’s on the show because he’s Laura Wright’s boyfriend.
Tired of the whole keeping Sonny and Carly apart too.

Stopping watching the show until the get rid of the Peter character and get Sonny and Carly back together.

Both of these storylines need to be wrapped up pronto. They are dragging out both of these storylines way too long.

I LOVED Friday’s episode! And I’m probably one of the few who think Wes Ramsey has been wonderful as Peter. I am sick to death of the character but not Wes. My hope is that since it is SWEEPS, someone plugs Peter for good and we get a good old-fashioned who-dunnit out of this. It’s been way too long since any show has been able to produce a good one in which the writers knew from the beginning who the murderer was; one that had a beginning, middle and end. Too often in recent years, any attempt at a who-dunnit… Read more »

The only problem with a “who-dunnit” murder mystery with Whiny Heiny…. …is that nobody would care. Unless Laura wanted to know their identity so she could give them the key to the city (or whatever symbol of honor they hand out for heroic acts in Port Charles) I doubt Mac (as police commissioner) would have given a damn about Heiny’s “due process” even before he got shot, and even less so now. Mac has a history of not always being a “by the book” cop if the criminal’s vile enough. (see the Pierce Dorman story from 1997, for example). Don’t… Read more »

The nine lives of Peter August—the most irritating, unfavorable, skin-crawling, stomach-churning, unattractive, repulsive derelict on TV. There’s nothing endearing about him. At least, I got a kick out of Faison, as demented as he was….
Get rid of this guy already—-Stop the farce. Stop the agony. Please!!
(Aside–I must say, I am enjoying the baby. So cute!! No crying…..so even-tempered—playing with her little blankie.)

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
