GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spencer is Laid to Rest; Heather Rants on Kevin over Esme’s Death


Wednesday’s February 7th episode of General Hospital was a somber one as Port Charles gathered to say goodbye to Spencer Cassadine at a gravesite service honoring the young man, who is now presumed dead.

With Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) reciting the eulogy, her words were superimposed by moments of Spencer family and friends and of course his girlfriend Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali) mourning him – each putting a white rose on his grave.

Returning for the funeral was Cameron Webber (Willian Lipton), Spencer’s best friend, who had an emotional reunion with Trina, and of course, Josslyn (Eden McCoy). Cameron tells Trina he’s so sorry for her loss, but she says she is sorry for him as she is well aware that Spencer, Joss and Cam have been friends since they were children. Laura, Kevin, Cyrus Sonny, Ava  Portia, Curtis Sam, Dante, Joss, Kristina, Gregory, Finn and Liz are also there.


Later, Liz (Rebecca Herbst) goes to visit Esme’s grave which has a signpost in it, not a tombstone. Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) joins her and places a white rose on the dirt in front of the marker for Esme.


All of a sudden, a prison guard a shackled Heather Webber (Alley Mills) arrive at the gravesite, and Heather cries out for her daughter, Esme. She then lays into Kevin, blaming her death on him, for the mere fact that he resurrected his serial killer brother, Ryan. It was Kevin who tried to trying to cure him, and then unleashed him back into the world so Ryan could get his hands on Esme and twist her mind.  In the end, Heather tells Kevin to do better by Ace than he did for Esme or there will be hell to pay.  Next, Heather is taken away.


Now home and devastated, Trina tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Portia (Brook Kerr) she is not returning to Paris for the semester and she is also not going to go to PCU. In fact, she’s not attending school at all. Eventually, an emotional Trina Trina heads out. She later pulls her turtle dove out of her jacket pocket and recalls the time Spencer gave it to her and the importance of it in Sprina’s relationship.

What did you think of Spencer’s funeral? Was it emotional for you? If so, what was your favorite part? Seeing Cameron return? Heather lash out at Kevin? Trina remembering the love of her life? Or another moment? Comment below.

Like many, I was confused why there was fresh dirt (frozen ground in February) for two graves that had no bodies.

Alley Mills is good, but oh boy, there was quite a bit of scenery chewing going on. Lindstrom and Herbst are two of the best actors on the show. Very powerful moments in the seldom scenes they share together. Heather was right (in a convoluted way) that Kevin does share some blame.

Loved the scenes with Heather and as I’ve said before, she may be Kookoo, but she is so right on the ball sometimes and I really felt for her loss which has been so much over the years. I loved her convo with Liz, asking her to watch over Ace and as you said, she wasn’t far off the way she lit into Kevin about his brother. Also, I just thought that dug up dirt was completely stupid and confusing and laying those white Roses on top was just nasty.

It was almost unbearable to see Cameron as it reminded me what a loss to show it is to have William Lipton offscreen. I know it’s his choice, so I have so support him, but I hope he will come back this summer. The show needs Cam in its younger set, and he is just so good.

I agree, why dig graves with no bodies? One would think Esme would have been cremated..but then there is no body to burn… over played the funeral.

The highlight for me was seeing William Lipton as Cameron back. As for the whole funeral service, it felt rushed and odd to have fresh graves without bodies. The eulogy by Alexis was nice. But I would have liked to see Trina, Cameron, and Joss speak about Spencer. Ally Mills was great!

I wonder if Chavez will really return? I think 50% chance. I wish we had seen the actual funeral.

Why bury caskets with no bodies? Also Ally Mills was way over the top and just embarrassingly bad!

I know that in real life not everyone can show up to a funeral service, and there’s always many reasons for that, and that is also true on soaps, still the amount of no show for Spencer funeral was interesting mainly because they are suppose to be related to him, for example, Michael, Molly, Aiden are all supposed to be cousins, even if that’s not the case what about the fact that They know Sonny or Laura? no support for them? Where was Valentine? Charlotte?, I mean Cyrus showed up for crying out loud, Did Martin and Molly have court cases? and where was Carly? I mean I know she’s in everything, but what was she doing that she couldn’t show up to her dead best friend son funeral? and crazy heather got to visit an empty burial yet, Nicholas wasn’t? Emma couldn’t fly in either? okay enough of my ranting, lol, it was more of an observation. lastly, the scenes with Kevin, liz and crazy heather were intense, sad and the whole time I kept thinking was how beautiful Rebeca Herbts is, like damn girl your just beautiful, but I’m glad someone that’s not related to Esme showed empathy for her.

I find it hard to get too invested in these funerals when you know the characters are not really dead.

‘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.

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.

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.
