GENERAL HOSPITAL PROMO: Someone is About To Come Face To Face With Their Past!

Courtesy/ABC

In this week’s promo for ABC’s General Hospital, you watch and hear “Patient Six” (Steve Burton) say, “Please help me get home to my family.”

And as viewers saw on last Friday’s Cliffhanger, the guy seems to have lost five years of his life, not realizing it was the year 2017!

In this teaser for the upcoming action, it appears that if Burton is the true Jason, when Billy Miller (Jason) and Kelly Monaco (Sam) take a trip, will it hold more than they bargained for?

Meanwhile, what will happen when the key people in “Patient Six’s” life realize he is alive ? Who will they believe is the real Jason?  Those people include: Carly (Laura Wright), Sam (Kelly Monaco), Sonny (Maurice Benard), Monica (Leslie Charleson), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

Watch the promo after the jump, and then weigh-in how you think the next beat of the story will go down, and who do you think will actually be the first person from “Patient Six'” loved ones an friends to see him first? Let us know in the comment section below.

Drew may be a clone of the real Jason, and or vice versa.
I think when the two Jasons face each other, there may be an explosion of a different kind. Each of their memories will blend into one another’s.

Sam and Drew are going out of town and Jason is coming into town?

It looks like Jason is opening up the door to Alex’s house?

GH traditionally heats up a week BEFORE sweeps and then lulls us to sleep!

Lets hope this turns out much better than FLUKE!

The door Jason is coming thru looks like Sonny’s patio door. I guarantee his first scene will be with MB his true love!!

I fear you are correct, k/kay!….This is the seminal moment they (but not we….) have been waiting for since the day “Stonecold” was unceremoniously dumped from Pier 52…Sonny and Jason together again…at long last!!!!! (Please pass the sick bag….)

How about to Port Charles, k/kay? The town could use a new eatery, not to mention, Lucky’s return! Oh, yeah!

Well, i doubt it will be Monica…

You are probably correct, jimh, but I wish it would be Monica! After all the heartache she has suffered by the loss of her “boys,” it would be a beautiful moment were she to be the first to discover that Jason has returned home to Port Charles and that she actually has twin stepsons to keep the Q dynasty alive!

She will probably find out OFF camera! This show doesnt know how to pull ANY heartstrings!

Would be nice but not with the current writing team…probably will be Sonny..Jason’s one and only love…however, it would be a nice surprise if i am wrong and it is Monica???

So far the two Jasons has been a sleeper.. Steve was brought back in a whimper. He should have brought in with a BANG! The story should have been high power from day one not as weak as it is. it seems most are worn out waiting for something intense and intriguing to happen. The huge build-up and what was delivered was a fail- snoor.. It was dragged out way too long and now many just don’t care who is whom; the thrill is gone. just worn out. If this same story had been written under Guza we’d be on… Read more »

IF….. I F – if

GH has any smart left

they will let this be Leslie Charleson MOMENT in the spotlight… her marquee

Monica Quartermaine damned heart – break – spills

tears at her heart

with all the other quartermaine “gone” why shouldn’t GH capitalize on this and

go the mother / son route

doing this… WITHOUT sonny / carly / sam and even Liz knowing whats going on

hash this out

ALL OUT

enter Liz , as she goes and sees Monica at her manse

Looks like he’s walking in the patio door of Sonny’s house when he calls out “anybody home”. That probably means that either Sonny or Carly will be the first to see him. Michael might possibly be there. I doubt they will leave the first Port Charles sighting to a secondary character like Max or Milo.

I don’t follow Twitter, but apparently Steve has already mentioned working with Laura Wright again, so that would be a point in Carly’s favor.

Patrick

THE – thing, that bothers me…. if Monica gets … her son back.. plus a twin… plus an older son, in Franco . WITH Ned@the manse.

won’t this be too much…. testosterone ? for me ? I don’t have enough endorphin

I NEED Skye Quartermaine to help me

GH – balance the Q. and hire Robin Christopher. let’s make this cat on a hot tin roof

that way… you can fire all the Corinthos clan and let’s watch them rot

whilst the cast as it were can find life

It looks like the door 2 Sonny’s house, I think it will b Carly he sees first, this is a great story so far, the writers are doing a really good job

I agree…I am enjoying SB’s stealth and story, so far. The downside is my ‘spending’ more time with St. Sonny and his sidekick, Carly.

Since Monica already had her “not-dead son walking through the door” moment with AJ, I doubt these writers will go there. It’s not Alexis’ house, as she was still in the lake house when SB/Jason left, so unfortunately it has to be Sonny. I’m more interested in finding out what happened to Drew when Betsy said he supposedly died. I don’t think Helena had the forward thinking to take a 3-year old knowing he’d have killer instincts. Either Susan didn’t die at the hands of Crane Tolliver or perhaps she, too, had a twin, either of whom came to claim… Read more »

Could it be the balcony entrance at Sam’s? Makes more sense that Jason would wish to return to his wife and son first….(Yes, Steve, even before he goes to genuflect before the altar of St. Sonny!) As for “what happened to Drew?” Maybe Heather found someone else wishing to buy a little boy, so she absconded with the child in order to receive an additional payout. I never underestimate Ms. Webber’s greed and ingenuity when it comes to pulling off such capers! All I know is we need another Heather appearance to shed some light on this ongoing mystery!

I’ll give GH 1 year before there is an R.I.P. next to it. Anna and Finn are a bore. It ‘s as though the writers don’t know what to do with them, and it shows. Lucas and Brad where “dropped like a hot potato !” Alexi, Ashley, and Watkins are being let go. Now, Jessica Tuck, another new face is coming to town. Pristina is the best story that GH had going. So what, Parker is NOT Kristina’s professor. They are 2 consenting adults. There is nothing wrong with this pairing. They have amazing chemistry. I know chemistry, I have… Read more »

I agree that Anna and Finn lack chemistry. Finola’s an excellent actress, but she seems to playing down in this storyline.

While it was a mistake to bump Watkins off contract, it appears he’s staying on recurring for a while. Ainsworth booked other tv/movie work, so she was not let go. Hopefully her career takes off, but she can always return. Without Kristina, there’s no need for Parker.

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 past 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.

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.
