This week on ABC’s General Hospital, it looks like a major showdown is coming between Trina (Tabyana Ali) and Esme (Avery Pohl), and then the question of how will the series address the exit of Spencer played by Nicholas Chavez (Spencer) as he takes time away from tto film one of the lead roles in Ryan Murphey’s anthology series Monsters.

In story, Sprina have begun their time together in Paris – where the plan is for Trina and Spencer to have quality time together during Trina’s semester abroad.  But, of course, Esme is hot on their trail, especially given that her memories are all intact, Spencer handed her baby over to Nikolas, etc.

Tabyana Ali told Soap Opera Digest on a preview of what fans can expect, “It’s emotional, it’s high-stakes and you can’t miss it.”

Then, in a tease for what sounds like a potential massive catfight confrontation between Esme and Trina, Ali expressed, “In some ways and to some degree, I have been looking forward to a specific moment that happens. And I think everybody is going to feel very satisfied by this specific moment. And I can’t wait for people to see that.”

However for GH fans, the actress also teased that the drama could have fans blood boiling, adding, “I also want to tell everybody to please take their blood pressure pills. People need to do whatever they need to make sure their blood pressure will be down.”

Now in the latest promo for GH, Sonny (Maurice Benard) is heard saying, “Esme has a lot to lose. That may make her unpredictable.” Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) is seen gut-punched and in tears. Could it be she received some terrible news about Spencer?

Official teasers for the show share that on today’s Monday, January 29th episode, Spencer and Trina enjoy a romantic dinner in Paris. Next on Tuesday, January 30th, Spencer makes a discovery. And on Wednesday, January 31st, Spencer and Trina find themselves in a precarious situation. As previously reported, Nicholas Chavez last airdate before his hiatus from the series is Wednesday, January 31st.

So, what do you think will happen to Spencer? Looking forward to an ultimate showdown between Esme and Trina? Weigh-in via the comment section below. But, first check out this week’s GH promo.

Will Spencer have adjoining rooms with Aunt Lulu for 4 months?

Will Nikolas take his oldest son to Cassadine Island to convalesce?

And, based on the shots fired in the preview, will Sonny & Ava get intimate for the first time since the crypt?

How either one of them could EVER judge anyone after that despicable “setting” to “come together,” lol, over their complicity in AJ’s death…is just another example of how the writers let some characters get away with everything and my poor AJ, and now Nina, always pay the price. Sigh.

So, he’s out in the Ocean in God knows what condition, besides the stuff Esme managed to inject him with, I’d say Spencer’s in a bad place. I wonder who will rescue him and take care of him for 4 months, also probably with no memory. So, as for your second question, do you really think Nikolas will conveniently find and save his son? That’s a long stretch, even for GH, but we know anything can happen.

Will Spencer end up in a coma next to Lulu?

I don’t think Esme was responsible for clobbering Kevin. I may be wrong, but, it’s just too obvious—

Did you miss the show??!! She CLEARLY clobbered him from behind!!!!!!!!

Again, did you miss the show??!!

LOL people just don’t pay attention to the show. We saw her hit him. Ugh these people still want Esme to be so innocent. Who else would have done it? Please.

Yea, she did it alright, now she’s in Paris after Spencer and Trina. Hope she gets the right one. Even though Esme has her memory back, I really didn’t think she’d blatantly start doing stuff like this, I thought she’d be more out there looking for her son. I’m wondering like everyone else how they will write off Spencer for 4 months.Maybe he’ll leave Paris with Esme to look for his dad and Ace.

I truly hope that they will get William Lipton back and that Nicholas Chaves will not quit working for General hospital. That being said, I always love Genie, Francis, but these kids are acting circles around her and the character of Porsche…. Still excellent show cuz no nina whining…

Oh, no!! —Esme—you are making a fool out of me!! I trusted you. What are you doing?? NOOOOO!!

She sure has disappointed me. Now she’s in more darn trouble than before after Trina gets through spilling her guts about what she did to her and Spencer.

Congrats to Nicholas Chavez on his movie role. I look forward to the exciting show when he returns! He will be missed. When does Steve Burton come back and how will that mess with Carly? And Sonny?

I’ve seen all the movies about those two brothers and I’m sure Chavez will play his part accordingly.

I sure wouldn’t worry about blood pressure rising but more like calming your gag reflex!

‘General Hospital’ Reignites Scott’s Feud with Sonny Over His Past Misdeeds of His Late Daughter, Karen Wexler

In what now seems like many moons ago, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) was a small-time mobster who owned a strip club in Port Charles. He enticed a young Karen Wexler (Cari Shayne) to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge.

But things got worse from there! Sonny convinced Karen that stripping was her idea, and he eventually got her hooked on drugs and into his bed!

Karen’s father, Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) has never forgotten what Sonny did Karen and for years wanted to take him down when he was the D.A. Fast-forward and on Wednesday’s February 28th episode of GH, Scott visited Karen’s gravesite on her birthday.

However, Scott had a visitor at the gravesite when John “Jagger” Cates also showed up to pay respects to his ex-wife.  This was the first time Scott laid eyes on the new incarnation of “Jagger’ on-screen as played by Adam J. Harrington.

Scott realizes he might have an ally to put the screws to Sonny after John reveals the pain and sorrow he still has over what Sonny did to Karen. Speaking to his former son-in-law about the break-up of his daughter’s marriage to him, Scott pipes up that Sonny, “walks around like he’s the mayor.” Then, Scott shouts to John, “Make him pay! Take him out!”‘

In Karen’s backstory: after getting help, Karen was reunited with “Jagger” and left Sonny. The two married and left Port Charles. Karen returned as medical student and had divorced “Jagger” in 1997, and the character landed on the General Hospital spinoff soap opera, Port Charles. Eventually, Karen was struck by a car and died. Three actresses played the role during Karen’s history: Cari Shayne, Jennifer Hammon and Marie Wilson.

Watch Scott and John talk about their vendetta against Sonny Corinthos in key scenes from GH below. Now let us know, do you think Sonny should pay for his manipulation of Karen Wexler many years ago? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Kate Mansi on Her First Scenes with Eva LaRue: “It Was So Tense and Uncomfortable, Which Was So Fun For Us.”

This week, General Hospital viewers have witnessed the arrival of Eva LaRue as Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia. When Natalia blew into her daughter’s life, she also caught Kristina (Kate Mansi) in bed. The next moment, Mansi and LaRue played the awkwardness of the scene.

In the story, and at that point, Natalia apparently didn’t have a clue that her daughter is gay, so finding Kristina is her daughter’s room was puzzling to her.

Kate Mansi spoke to Soap Opera Digest on her introduction to soap veteran LaRue, who has appeared on All My Children as Maria Santos and won a Daytime Emmy for her role as Celeste Rosales on The Young and the Restless.

“She just came in like such a freaking pro,” shared Kate on LaRue. “She was so good. It was such a funny first introduction for our characters – it was written so well and it was so tense and uncomfortable, which was so fun for us.”

The two actresses instantly created a bond. As Mansi explained, “Right away, we were doing these funny one-liners back and forth (between scenes). Blaze said something like, ‘Kristina is more than my friend, she’s my partner,’ and then they’d call, ‘Cut!’ and Eva and I would look and each other and we’d be like, ‘She means writing partner,’ or she’d be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, she means producing partner, right?’ We were just dying laughing.”

On Wednesday’s episode of GH, Natalia learned Blaze was gay, but isn’t quite believing her, thinking she had been somehow influenced by Kristina.  In the key scenes, Blaze tells Natalia that Kristina is more than her friend. She’s her girlfriend. Blaze asks if her mother heard what she truly said, and Natalia claims she did, but then starts cleaning up the place as a method of trying to cope with what she just heard.

Things get testy when Blaze says, “Kristina and I…” Next, Natalia cuts her daughter off, firmly saying, “There is no Kristina and you!”

So, did you enjoy the tension-filled scenes between Kate Mansi and Eva LaRue? Are you liking where GH is heading with the story of a disapproving and religious mother, trying to come to terms with her daughter and her girlfriend’s sexuality? Comment below.

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.
