General Hospital Puts The Heart Into Their Valentine's Day Episode! What Was Your Favorite Moment?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital was filled with guest stars, touching moments, a welcome return, the debut of Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and Brandon Barash’s (Johnny) daughter, Harper Rose Barash, in the role of little Georgie, couples coming together for Valentine’s Day, and a shocker at the end of the hour for one of the residents of Port Charles.

Baby Daddy’s Melissa Peterman arrives in Port Charles in a fun turn as Mel,  a long time childhood friend of Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero). While the two reminisce, it’s evident to Mel that Olivia has got it bad for Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth) as Liv thinks she is nursing the flu. Ned is preparing Valentine’s Day dinner at the Q’s for Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) with the famous chef JL, who later turns out to be Mel’s son!  When Alexis arrives, all hell breaks loose between the duo, when Ned questions her about being by Julian’s (William deVry) side at the hospital.  Alexis leaves after having Gazpacho soup spilled all over her in her haste to get away from Ned.

Meanwhile, in very touching scenes between Ryan Carnes (Lucas) and William deVry, Lucas explains that he was afraid to give Brad (Parry Shen) an answer, when Brad told Lucas he loves him and wants him to move in with him.  Julian says if he is scared it must be love, and urges Lucas to follow his heart, before he loses Brad.   After Brad complains to odd-man-out Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) about Lucas, and wishes Britt was around to give him advice, Lucas shows up!  And in a grand gesture, Lucas jumps on to the nurses station counter, and in front of hospital staff admits to Brad that he loves him, and would love to move in with him.  Brad and Lucas share a major liplock!  Meanwhile, Julian gets a visit from Alexis who tells him that this is where she wants to be … with him!

Maxie is at home when Spinelli (Braford Anderson) arrives with Georgie.  She relates to Spinelli that Nathan (Ryan Paevey)  is upset with her for aiding and abetting Johnny in his escape, which has temporarily caused a rift in Naxie’s relationship on Valentine’s Day.  Back at the PCPD, Nathan is confronted by Assistant D.A. Natalie (visiting guest star Cristela Alonzo) on what happened between Johnny and his girlfriend.  Nathan, to save Maxie, claims Johnny broke into Maxie’s apartment and stole her car.  Natalia then questions Nathan as to why he isn’t with Maxie tonight.  When he explains they had a fight, she encourages him to patch things up with his lady love.  Meanwhile, Spinelli comes clean with Maxie.  Ellie broke up with him … over Maxie!

Elsewhere, Patrick (Jason Thompson) is called away to surgery and can’t begin his Valentine’s Day dinner with Sam (Kelly Monaco), quite yet.  Sam is taken to the Metro Court by Baby Daddy guest star Derek Theler, who plays a plastics doctor Derek, whose date is also delayed.  The two chat and Sam encourages him to go to his date and surprise her!  Patrick eventually makes it to his date with Sam!

After Mel shows up at the Q’s and confronts Ned about how he is treating her girl, Olivia, Ned gets a clue!  He heads over to the Metro Court to see Olivia.  Meanwhile, Olivia is on the phone with the doctor about her flu symptoms where the doctor informs Liv she is pregnant!

What did you think about GH’s Valentine’s Day episode?  What was your favorite part of the episode?  What couple were you most happy to see get together on the day of love?  Did you need the hankies when Lucas professed his love for Brad?  Were you surprised by the ending, even though viewers know in real life Lisa LoCicero was pregnant?  Share your thoughts below!

Julian. is the baby daddy. this would be exciting as Olivia & Julian’s NYE hook-up was unexpectedly HOT! Also, I think it’s Julian’s baby because the actor who plays him is on contract, whereas Wally Kurth (Ned), sadly is not.

I think Ned will be on the canvas more… I really hope so. Love that man! His smile, his warm eyes, that snark that he can dole out on a dime… Grounded and intelligent. But I digress. Of course it’ll be Julian’s just as Julian and Alexis get back together and Ned realizes he’s romantically into Olivia.

Liv hasn’t slept with Ned yet. So it is Julian’s

@mk – oh yeah. I wasn’t sure if I missed an episode. that NYE episode had many images of the four characters in and out of bed with one another. So, another mob boss has potent sperm! hahaha

Yes, jimh! That would have been a laugh riot! I can just picture Liesl incandescent with ire over the fact that such an unsanitary practice was taking place in HER hospital……and paging the housekeeping staff to drag the Karcher steam cleaning unit to the floor STAT!

That’s because “Georgie” is a different baby this time around, and if the information I read is correct, she is KS’s actual daughter with BB, Harper Rose Barash.

Georgie was born before the current baby playing her wish happens to be Kristen storm and Brandon barash real life daughter Harper rose.

Favorite part of the episode was the end, I’m not a fan of these special theme episodes, well some, not all and the valentine one was just to corny and Lucas and brad as a couple is horrible, Lucas should be with Felix, talk about good guy finishing last, brad the skank gets rewarded for being a snake and poor Felix is stuck doing overtime at work, how sad. As for Olivia being pregnant no surprise there.

Oh and Sam with Patrick really boring, I think Sam in general is boring so no matter who she’s paired with she always acts like just talking takes an effort.

AJQ
Guest

Awful is being generous. What a terrible episode on so many levels. First, why the cameos and who were any of those people? What was the point of having on people that no one knows? How very special. But the episode was very telling about the current state of GH or Plot Point Hospital. There are no relationships. There are no romances so what do you do on Valentines Day? Schtick. What was the Ned/Alexis stuff? There is no current relationship there, none. There is also no Julian/Alexis relationship. Can anyone tell me how many scenes they have had together… Read more »

I don’t think Ron knows how to write romance–there’s no build up, no sense of tension, excitement, no climatic action (no pun intended).
Characters are just thrown together the way the shirt is thrown together with the pants in the spin cycle of the washer machine while socks lose their mates in the dryer.
Sorry, it’s laundry day.

Utterly awful, Lawrence! Except for the last moment when Ms. Falconeri received the news she is expecting a “Julivia” offspring. YES!!!! Take that, Alexis! (But how I wish that chilled gazpacho had been dumped down her ever-prominently displayed décolletage!)

Sam/Patrick were the best thing about the whole episode. I loved the fact she was so understanding with him and then he finally made it to the Metro Court. I also enjoyed Julian/Sam/Lucas in scenes together, not sure why you only mentioned Lucas/Julian, Sam was very much involved in the conversation about Brad also. I loved the fact Kelly Monaco was in scenes with several different people. She is the best and one of the most interesting and exciting actress’ on the show. She is the reason I watch GH.

But Sam and Patrick just seem like buddies. And there is a four letter word which begins with F which should preface ‘buddies.’

I agree with you, Lovesam1122, Patrick and Sam are great together…lovers based on friendship first…the attraction grew…they flirt, they confide in each other…very easy rapport. I also love that Patrick gets the son he’s wanted so badly by bonding with Danny. Unfortunately everything will be turned upside down when Jason is revealed. It’ll be interesting to see how all the couples will play out.

Beth

I was all, wait … What? Who are these people? when the episode started. The Jerome Davis Jones trio all getting some good love was fun to watch. Olivia, no. Sorry. Not liking that contrived angst when there is so much better to choose from that seems far better established for #Julexis. Olivia and Ed have something, let it fly! Speaking of Olivia, sure missed Dante!

I don’t remember Olivia sleeping with Ned so I hope there is not going to be another who’s the father story. The baby is Julian’s unless she slept with a stranger we don’t know about.

Seeing Spinelli return to Port Charles with Georgie. Loved the Spixie scenes. Everything else was awful.

Timmm

I will include Spinnelli as being awful. He was a one trick pony but I guess since Stone Cold will rise soon, Spinnelli is needed.

Shay
Guest

I always enjoyed Spinelli due to his immense intellect and impressive vocabulary….plus, it was such a thrill to see BA’s almost-Asperger’s-afflicted character mainstreamed with the rest of Port Charles’ residents—particularly in his romance with Maxie—but I do have to question whether the current writing team will be able to re-capture his quirky brilliance and idiosyncratic use of language. For me, his unique form of communication was a great part of Spin’s charm, thus, I am hoping we will not be subjected to a dumbed-down version of him, as we have so many other legacy characters.

The show was wasted with too many guest stars stealing screen time from what should have been a show devoted to the show’s couples– so overall the episode was a dud for me- but perhaps some viewers loved it. No my favorite moment was finding out Liv is with child. I don’t keep up with actor’s private lives so I had no idea she was pregnant in real life, so this was a complete surprise made perfect by her expression on her face. Mercifully there won’t be any whose the daddy drama because it is obvious it is Julian’s, but… Read more »

It was a -different- and a FUN episode !!!

Cristela Alonzo was fun !
wow! on Derek Theler! he is HOT ‘seeing’ him only for moments was great!!
Melissa Peterman with Ned and Olivia was a fun watch! I laughed ..
Those three and Spinelli were the best part of GH on Valentines..

As for the love scenes I give it to— Lucs and Brad .. well done!!

Well I’m glad it’s not just me. I didn’t have a clue who all the strange guest stars were supposed to be either. Something else that became obvious was that GH doesn’t actually have any strong relationships of any sort. I mean, a viewer who didn’t watch every single day could have tuned in and had absolutely no clue that Jullian is supposed to be the father of both Sam and Lucas or that Sam and Lucas even knew each other because those relationships have never been developed. Another thing that really bugged me was Lucas’s Tom Cruise moment jumping… Read more »

lol’KM said; ” I didn’t have a clue who all the strange guest stars were supposed to be either.” what?? No clues were needed .. 1st one came on a Olivia’s friend from back when kids,, It was the first thing said.. no clue needed, that is who she was.. A here and gone moment.. The second one; She came in as the district attorney, and was introduced as so from 1st sentence, no clue needed ..lol A here and gone moment.. Ohh the guy was gorgeous!! He was a Doc and said/shown to be so , no clue needed…… Read more »

Loved seeing Spinelli…Bradford is such a natural. And he’s so cute in his own way. He and Maxi still feel right together. Glad to see Felix…shame they reduced him to non-existent. Thought Mel was hilarious. Tacky, street, loud…but tell-it-like it is chick. Thought the baby daddy dude was weirdly good–looking and somehow charming. Thought the episode was light and cute…needed after the dark Fluke days. Fun, and set up the coming Julian, Olivia, Ned, Alexis, baby drama. Hoping Spinelli’s back for good.

Me too, Rebecca. Spinelli and Maxi just fit–like two missing puzzle pieces.
In fact, Spin said as much today to Maxie.

Who knew that Brad and Lucas would be the only romantic couple??? I want more Brad and Lucas. Disappointed with no Maxie and Nathan, Patrick and Sam, etc. Even Liv qnd ned were together to she is preggers by Ned’s rival. No Weddings. A daytime Valentine’s staple. In fact none of the soaps had weddings.

I didn’t get to see Friday’ s Valentine special, but reading the summary and comments it doesn’t look like I missed much. Sounds like the writers feel more comfortable putting together the bizarre/gimmicky instead human dynamics and relationships. That doesn’t mean it should be all sucky…I want dramas , adventure, mystery and betrayal, etc. It makes me wonder if the writers only communicate by texting and social media, and try to get dates with online dating services. In other words they don’t feel comfortable with one-on-one, face-to-face anymore, if they ever did.

Anticipating romance, I soon felt deflated. I was hoping for more couples time and got the opposite. New faces taking up precious screen time from our faves. Silliness abounded. Seems the powers that be give Gen Hospital lovers what they don’t want. Why can’t they just focus on the characters already established? I really got annoyed with the guest stars, and the Brad and Lucas scenes seemed forced, just like they decided they had to feature a same sex couple.

For a sweeps show this was awful. Granted there are no real love stories right now but nothing turned me on so to speak. So, since it was the Valentines episode, here we go: Loved it: Melissa Peterman’s appearance. Why? She seemed to fit right in with the rest of the cast and I would hire her to run Kelly’s Diner because I could see her having chemistry with whomever she is acting opposite. Hated it: Ned looking like a fool. Why the hell can’t we just say who we love and not beat around the bush! Glad he went… Read more »

Wow…. I agree with so many: this past thurs and fri eps were uninteresting thursday : Sonny took his daughter from Kiki. I don’t know when she’s leaving the show… but this isn’t helping Ava cause . I thought Kiki w/Alexis help suing for custody… would be Kiki exit story… for once she sets her foot down and respects her mother and will do any thing she can to help out her mom. If Kiki is the legal guardianship… and Ava has been presumed dead…. regardless that Sonny is the biological sperm…. wouldn’t this have even given Kiki more rights… Read more »

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Courtesy/ABC

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
