GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ned Remembers, Anna Reels After Valentin Tells Her About Charlotte, Trina Walks Out on Spencer


Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it excellent performances from Finola Hughes (Anna), Wally Kurth (Ned) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) as several plot points moved forward.

First, in the pick-up from Thursday, Olivia saves Ned in the water after his foot is caught in netting. She is able to find him, and free him. When she gets him to safety she performs CPR, and he wakes up. When he does, he is finally Ned Quartermaine, not his alter-ego, “Eddie Maine.”

The proof came when Olivia called him “Eddie.”  He then replies, “It’s not Eddie, I’m Ned.”  Olivia cries that she thought she had lost him forever. He details he remembers everything that’s happened over the past several months and they share a kiss. Ned tells Liv he loves that she stuck by Eddie and supported him.


When they get to the boathouse, Ned says it’s like he was there the whole time, but he needed space and “Eddie” was the safest escape, so he could go back to a time when it just him and his music, and not worry about the troubling feuding of the Quartermaine clan and ELQ business.  When Olivia questions Ned about his feeling for Lois (Rena Sofer) – and if she had a hand in his true identify emerging, he shares that Lois pushed him to take “a leap of faith” and finish his song, but Olivia is the ‘siren’ in the song he was trying to pinpoint. Ned tells Olivia that she saved his life.

Spencer (Nicholas Chavez) is very upset, and tells Trina (Tabyana Ali) about Esme (Avery Pohl) and how she’s planning to move into her own apartment with take his baby brother, Ace, with her and that his grandmother, Laura (Genie Francis), is going to help her. Trina thinks that’s good news as it’s time for Esme to move out. An infuriated Spencer yells at her that it’s NOT good news.


Dex (Evan Hofer) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) are also in the room. Dex brings up how Spencer could try to get shared custody. Meanwhile, Trina has had enough. She reminds everyone, and mostly Spencer, that he is not Ace’s father.  Spencer says he won’t abandon his baby brother. When Trina asks Spencer where does that leave them, he says she won’t like the answer if she forces him to choose. Trina storms out.


At GH, and in a stairwell, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna talk privately about what led to Anna shooting Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) by mistake. Anna swears to Valentin it was an accident as she thought an intruder was in her apartment. Anna goes on to tell Valentin her theory; that a former WSB agent named “Forsythe” is trying to discredit her and he’s enlisted Charlotte to help bring her down.  Valentin finally pipes up and corrects her.  He reveals that Charlotte has been stalking her for months and he has been covering his daughter’s tracks.


Infuriated and betrayed, Anna says she had a right to know. Valentin says Charlotte even met with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) for a therapy session. Anna screams at him to shut up as she slaps him in the face. She says if she had known it was Charlotte she wouldn’t have been carrying her gun. Anna says she has to live with the fact she shot a child for the rest of her life, and at that point, basically walks out on her relationship with Valentin for good.

Laura is with Charlotte in her hospital room. Charlotte reveals all to Laura – that Victor in a letter – told her Anna was a double agent who would hurt her father. Charlotte believes Anna shot her on purpose. When she leaves the hospital room, Laura runs into Anna who wants to go see Charlotte. Laura tells her “no” because Charlotte believes Anna intentionally shot her. We fade to black.

What a powerhouse show!

Yes it was.

I can’t believe that Ned said he went back to being Eddie because he wanted to go back to a time when things were simpler and less complicated.

The original Eddie Maine had two wives and had to spend several months trying to keep them from knowing about each other. How was that “less complicated”??

Whatever… it’s done now… and if Ned says he remembers “everything” then hopefully that includes the circumstances that landed him in the Metro Court pool in the first place. If Mikey won’t pull the pin on taking down Nina, somebody’s gotta do it!

Somehow Nina is going to get the upper hand on Michael (finding out how he was planning to take Sonny down). That will make Sonny question who he really trusts.

I hope that Nina finds out how Michael has been trying to take Sonny down and tell Sonny the truth. Michael is the last person to look down on anyone and especially Nina.

Yes! Steve, that’s an episode I’d watch TWICE. The only thing worse than Michael’s hypocrisy is that silly new junior high school hairdo he’s sporting.

Only in soap operas can going for a swim cure insomnia.

And amnesia.

Well here is one reason Sonny is going to be angry with Nina. She deleted the tape that showed Charlotte was the one terrorizing Anna his friend. That isn’t going to go well. And Carly has a feeling that Micheal knows something she tells Drew she will forget about finding out who squealed but we all know Carly. Ned is going to tell Olivia why he was going to the pool. She is going to remember Nina in her office and put it all together. She is going to tell Carly. Hopefully this Nina thing will be over.

props to the ned Olivia underwater adventure but most importantly Ned getting his memory back it was begining to drag to long, Anna slapping Valentine, well deserved, and Trina walking out on spoiled brat Spencer, good for her, The Cassadine Kids(Lauras grandkids) Charlotte and Spencer are just a annoying mess.

Sure do agree with you. Can’t stand Charlotte nor Spencer, both spoiled brats.

General Hospital Pays Tribute to Tyler Christopher at End of Episode, ABC Exec Nathan Varni Shares: “You’ll Always Be In Our Hearts”

If you caught the end of the Monday, November 27th Thanksgiving episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama ended the show with a special dedication to Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine), who passed away on October 31st at the age of 50.

With a very touching title card, and a photo of Tyler from his younger days as the dark prince of the Cassadine clan, it read, “In Loving Memory of Tyler Christopher.”

On Tuesday, November 28th, ABC Current Series executive, Nathan Varni, who oversees Grey’s Anatomy, The Conners, Station 19 and General Hospital for the network, shared on X some additional thoughts on Tyler’s contributions to the GH family.

Varni expressed: “This lovely tribute card was shown at the end of yesterday’s episode of GH In loving memory of Tyler Christopher. Thanks for bringing Nikolas Cassadine to life on our screens, you’ll always be in our hearts. RIP.”

Tyler played the role of GH’s Nikolas from 1996–1999, 2003–2011, and lastly from 2013–2016. He also took on the role of Connor Bishop from 2004–2005. The late actor took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2016 for his work as Nikolas.

GH’s Scarlett Fernandez on Charlotte’s Mindset: “She Completely Believes That Anna is Out to Get Her”

Once returning to General Hospital, Scarlett Fernandez (Charlotte) has been involved in a juicy storyline, where an impressionable young Charlotte Cassadine has been persuaded almost brain-washed, if you will, via a letter from Victor Cassadine from the grave.

In it, he implores Charlotte to keep Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) away from her father, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart). So, taking that to heart, Charlotte burned Anna’s house down and much more.  When she gets shot by Anna after intruding into the super spy’s apartment, the stakes get even higher.

Valenin had figured out that Charlotte was stalking Anna and trying to do her harm, but did not inform Anna. That has caused a major rift in their relationship.  Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confronted Charlotte after she returned home from the hospital.

In her latest interview with Soap Opera Digest, Fernandez shared on getting to play this kind of story: “It’s definitely an honor because when I was little, I was getting storylines, but this is just crazy! I kind of feel like I’m treated like an adult on the show now, almost, and it’s just been great. I’ve been given great stuff and the fact that Frank (Valentini, EP, GH) and all of his co-workers have trusted me has just been an amazing feeling.”

With everyone confronting Charlotte on her dirty deeds against Anna, and her denying it, Fernandez weighs-in on just where Charlotte is at this point in her mind: “I think that she definitely realizes that the people around her don’t believe her and don’t trust her and I think that really frustrates her because she completely believes that Anna is out to get her. So that (the adults in her life don’t believe her) is hard for her.”

There is also burgeoning chemistry between Jake (Hudson West) and Charlotte! So what does Fernandez think of that? Is she using him, or could be the beginning of young love? She expressed: “I think it’s definitely a little bit of both. I think that maybe she and Jake are partners-in-crime, but I also think that Jake has or will have a good influence on her. She just really needs someone to be there for her and for her to be able to confide in and I think that he has been that.”

So, have you been enjoying Scarlett’s performances as a troubled Charlotte? Would you like to see Jake and Charlotte have a ‘date’? Do you think Charlotte needs deprogramming to help her out of the grip that Victor has on her; as she believes Anna is the cause of all the trouble that will come her father’s way, if she doesn’t find a way to get rid of her? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
