In it, it’s been a year since Nathan’s death.  Is Maxie (Kirsten Storms) ready to move on with Peter (Wes Ramsey)? Sonny (Maurice Benard) is devastated realizing that Mike (Max Gail) is slipping further and further away and that he cannot take care of his dad.

Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) is on a murderous spree, and the PCPD is closing in on the clues. Will Lulu (Emme Rylan) be his next victim?

Then, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Oscar (Garren Stitt) go missing after Oscar has a major seizure and they are trapped down below.

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) rekindle their love, but then tragedy strikes when Jason falls into a pit which looks to be where Josslyn and Oscar might be and Sam is stunned.

In a big return, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) is back in Port Charles! Will he help Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes) solve the mystery of the Anna’s sudden blindness via a virus from potentially the DVX?

And, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) wants to come clean to Chase about giving up her baby, that she believes is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes).

Check out the promo below, Then let us know what you think will happen next in these storylines, this week on GH, via the comment section below.

Nobody cares – Jason and that bullshit ladder reminds me of that commercial lol!!

Celia

LOL. I liked Steve so much better as Dylan ( at the end of his tenure), on Y&R…. I was thinking, Chris, that if Oscar ( whom I love and I would never be so facetious and insensitive as to make light of this ), but if Oscar stumbles and hurts his head……Well, it may be a means to operate and , thus, remove the tumor, as inoperable as it may be. Perhaps, he may have a chance? I truly want him to stay.
I still question why Jason’s relevance. Is he in PC for Sam or Carly?

DMR
DMR

The entire cast is saddled, propping up Laura Wright’s boyfriend. It’s beyond ridiculous. Lulu-getting up after being stabbed, and getting into the elevator-horrific acting!

Celia
Celia

Hello, there, DMR….long time no see…
Yeah! What you said–all of it. Lulu is Super-Woman…..too much nonsense to take in all at once, LOL ….what about Ryan?….he must know the hospital’s corridors by ‘rote’….
Speaking of Ryan….he must have the same insidious infection as Anna–UFFA ( UMPH), as the Italians say– she’s another one who’s getting on my nerves lately.
What’s the connection? Will this link be the determining factor of discovery?
And, will his shoes give Ava A hint? Will she figure it out and kill Ryan? I wonder if Ava will know it’s not Kevin…..

DMR
DMR

Celia, my posts haven’t been posting for some reason..hmph?! Hahaha, #insipidlulu, #superwoman!

Celia
Celia

Awwww!!!…. gee, DMR; I’ve missed your comments more than you know.
We all know how this plays out—-been there, done that, my friend…
I ask idiotic rhetorical questions because what is happening with GH is idiotic–all of it—idiotic writing; idiotic characters; idiotic scenarios.
As Satan mentioned: why Lulu, of all people? The seriousness of her “condition” demands ALL her immediate family around her…..her father should have been at her bedside in the speed of light. He is her daddy, afterall: Superman!!
Then here are Joss and Oscar—what the blank? Ooops–; couldn’t help myself, LOL….these two are my favorite characters–catacombs!! Right!! It’s a makeshift boarded-up room…I guess no one has ever been to Rome…. Shimmied through real catacombs with a few GUIDES!! Mamma mia!! But, that’s not even the point….I just get silly because these unrealistic developments ask for silly. Of all things to do when faced with death is go underground? I would want to breathe the last of fresh air into my lungs—-considering I will spend the rest of eternity in a stone-cold crypt!! I care not that they’re young and are thinking irrationally–Oscar and Joss have always been “adult-children” more sensible than their adult counterpart. These writers have run out of real stories with “touchy-feely” plots; stories so viscerally-charged with emotion where we would be beside ourselves with palpating heart, fear, anger and every other emotion….I feel nothing for Lulu’s plight, albeit I am enjoying Jon’s performance to the hilt. Ultimately, that’s what it is–a performance. And, he is owning it from A to Z. Sorry for the rant!! LOL.
Hope your posts go through, my friend.❤️

DMR
DMR

Love Jon Lindstrom! I keep saying, if Kim’s (a doctor), only son is terminally ill, why isn’t she taking a leave of absence from work? These are things that make me go hmph?!

Celia
Celia

Ke expressing yourself, my friend……I’ve been kicked and prodded from here to the moon. Only the fittest survive. Don’t you just love Darwinism? LOL.❤️

Shay
Shay

Tell me about it, CeeCeeGirl!!! I kept checking back on the last two posts I sent to you and never saw a reply…hmmm. As for Darwinism, I actually do love it…depending upon whom is deciding what constitutes being the “fittest!” Anyway, just wanted to say hello…I’ve been enjoying my latest blast of winter by frolicking in the snow so have been purposely absent, but I hope all is well with you…one of these days I’ll get up-to-speed on GH so we may again discuss and dissect its many woes…LOL. Until then, take care, mia amica! Oh…and I concur… welcome back, DMR….you have been missed

Celia
Celia

Hi, Shay,
I am sorry you are experiencing “posting” issues….I haven’t had a problem in a while now. The only odd thing is that I still receive replies not meant for me….but, as I said before, it’s fine….I don’t mind; except that I have to go fishing in order to find any reply addressed to me.
I guess it gives me a chance ( usually late at night) to read everyone’s input.
Frolicking in the snow, eh?—-not by yourself, I hope, LOL……
You practically know everything about me ( as far as in-utero, LOL), yet I know nothing about you…….I wish I were more like you….I’m learning, I’m learning….
We will be in a deep-freeze again, in a few days…..happy frolicking, Shay. Need to keep it indoors, though….the frolicking, I mean. Hmmmm??

Shay
Shay

Well, CeeCeeGirl, despite my enigmatic nature, I assure you the “frolicking” in the snow is of a wholesome variety….I just love being outside in the winter for any reason….(solo or otherwise, LOL…) The bracing chill of the frosty air and the majesty of the gorgeously pristine landscapes fill me with utter joy…it’s so otherworldly!! But even I have my self-limits…since I possess such a high tolerance for the cold, I force myself to stay inside when the temps become brutal…would I even realize I had hypothermia before it were too late? As for the posts I previously sent you, do check out the “Maura West” thread…there was another one, too. I’ll try to figure out where it was…In terms of those “notifications,” what they really mean is that despite the misleading message, the person mentioned actually sent YOU a reply, So, hopefully, you shall soon be receiving an email saying “Hi Shay” which seemingly indicates I got a reply, but in reality, the response is TO you FROM moi! Later, mia amica! Stay safe and warm!

Celia
Celia

LOL, Shay….I get it–Duh!!!! My mind is always ahead of my head—multi-thinker….Is there such a thing? If something does not affect my life in a drastic way; then I do not delve into the ifs and whys.
I had figured it out, after seeing the trend of the postings….❤️

Shay
Shay

Not at all, CeeCeeGirl! I think you are much like me…literal! (And often toooo smart for your own good….) Words mean things to us and we expect them to accurately and logically portray any given situation…Nothing makes any sense about those messages in the way they are phrased….it’s actually the exact opposite of what we are being told! But once I realized this idiosyncrasy, I just looked at the name mentioned to tell me if I cared to follow the link and read the response! (Which is, quite thankfully, usually the case these days….LOL.) If only the rest of life were so easy to figure out and navigate….

Celia
Celia

Yeah, Shaybelle—-the mornings are the hardest to navigate!! Anyone who has or has reared children knows that!!LOL. It’s brutal!!!
Rosie will be five in May…..she already gives me “looks” when I pick out an outfit for her to wear—-it’s a ritual, Shay—-a parade of outfits, shoes, booties, boots, hair accessories….etc….
I already dread the teen years!!
Anyway….as much as I am completely in love with Jon, I want the Ryan story to end—I hope this week will be climactic—-reach a peak and then a rapid descent to the end. I think this is where the plot should be the most intriguing, if the PTB do it right!!
Thank you for the compliment…..I graciously accept it, albeit I am so absentminded, it’s scary…❤️

Shay
Shay

I call it suffering from ”information overload,” CeeCeeGirl! Even if one successfully multitasks, our human hardrives can only process so much at once, plus I’m sure your little miss keeps you on your toes…but what a precious age! And just remember, having a mind of one’s own is a true sign of intelligence….I’m sure Rosie is simply being a chip off the old CeeCee! C’mon, didn’t you do likewise??? I know I did, and my mother says we always get back in spades what we did as children when we have our own….nature’s revenge! Lol. At any rate, I do hope the Ryan saga ends with a bang and not a whimper…I watched Scorpio’s return the other day, and am looking forward to this week’s scenes with Laura, Anna, et al….if the spoilers I read are indeed correct…. it would certainly be nice if someone other than the predictible Ava, Nina or Carly brings down Ryan once and for all! We shall soon see……Oh, incidentally, enjoy the “Arctic Express!” It’s on the way…am I crazy to be excited by that fact??? (Because I am!)

Celia
Celia

I do remember giving my mother a hard time with food—I was never a big eater and she would ply me with vitamins….we did argue about curfew, though….
Rosie loves my wardrobe and shoe closet—-never have a problem with my son…..as far as clothes. LOL.
My father was always the one who rained on our parade, Shay ( having four daughters is not an easy feat for a father, I guess—-my two brothers got away with a lot more than we girls did. He would complain about tight jeans, skimpy bikini, Daisy Dukes, short skirts etc…..everything we wore was inappropriate; his favorite word.
Nature’s revenge is right…I’m getting it back in spades.

Anna has lost her spark for me. She is silly—-and, even when she tries to get into her “agent” head, it seems forced—the writers have lost touch with this character.
Finn gets on my nerves with each passing day/episode. Two silly school-kids. I wish he would shave…..his scraggly beard grows weird…a hair here and there….either he shaves, or he paints it in. LOL. Goofy guy…
Then, there’s Franco. I love Roger—but, I liked the little bit of crazy in Franco—-too much of a drastic change.
I want to smack the little teacher, as well, Shay….don’t ask me why. I don’t know.
The tides have changed for me. Now, I wish I could see more of Alexis. I know you don’t agree, but I like her so much more without Julian. They both need to re-group. Perhaps, the writers are doing us a great service by keeping them at arms’ length—IF they do get back together again, I’d like to see a wiser and more trusting relationship.
As far as this twin thing. I must be dense…I don’t get the connection!? As I said, this is another Chimera idiocy. What is the point?
Good night, amica mia!!

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee……..Apologies for taking so long to reply, mia amica! I thought about just sending you a banana emblazoned with a Sharpie-scribbled inspirational message in the interim, but thought better of it, all things considered…(I know you will know to what I am referring…..LOL!) Having said that, I so hear you on the subject of Anna…she was such a dynamic character back in the day and to see her increasingly diminshed by the current regime really chafes at one’s sensibilities…The Divine Devane was never a sappy, silly femme no matter how deeply her emotions were felt….she certainly didn’t act that way over either of her great loves, those alpha males, Robert and Duke, so to see her behaving like a giddy schoolgirl with a sweet, gentle guy who owns a service lizard rather beggars belief! Of course, I still love Finola, but I do so hope she soon receives some material that does both Anna and her justice! (Perhaps she will if the spoiler I just read comes to fruition….fingers crossed…It will be an absolute Godsend!) As for Alexis, there is quite literally no plausible scenario that I could fathom which would make me desirous of seeing more of that woman…with or without Julian!!! Despite the many circumstances where we do see eye to eye, or at least understand each others’ opposing viewpoints, I shall never ken to your Damascene Conversion where she’s involved….’tis a true and abiding mystery for me! Sort of like that twin thing…will we ever receive a coherent conclusion to that convoluted mess???? (I’m not holding my breath…) In terms of the teacher, the main thing that I would find annoying about her would be if she were revealed as that seemingly mythical long-lost child of Nina’s…I’m truly sick of that character’s never-ending quest for motherhood which has been teased time and time again…let’s just keep her barren and leave it at that! At any rate, you were apparently quite the handful as a little miss, weren’t you??? Hopefully your appetite has improved in adulthood since you need all the energy you can muster to keep up with your prodigious progenies! (Although they do sound utterly delightful! Rosie seems like such a precious girly girl…just wait until you are both the same clothing size…that’s when the real raid on your closet will begin! Then who will be the fashion arbiter in your family….Jude or you?? I, myself, never gave my parents too much trouble when it came to being “appropriate,” so there was seldom a debate upon that particular topic…With me, it was more a matter of having very expensive tastes….my mother completely related, but my father routinely inquired as to the sum totals of my frequent shopping trips when I arrived home laden with bags and boxes full of merchandise, although bless his heart, he never forced me to return anything!) By the way, you and yours were on my mind over Super Bowl weekend…I’m sure you were celebrating the results…as was I, regardless of my… Read more »

Celia

No worries, Shaybelle…. we all have a life; and it goes on…..better late than never—here I go—getting all Voltarian on you, LOL.
Willow is a good candidate as Nina’s daughter, albeit Sasha fits her like a glove, as it were….tall and lanky …..
I would love for the teacher to assume some spunk and sparkle—-there’s nothing interesting about her personality—so unlike Nina–yet, I am hoping fot her to be Nina’s long-lost daughter; if Sasha cannot.
I know you get an infarct, each time Nina and Alexis are mentioned, LOL…..but, I love Michelle and I appreciate Nancy, as an actress.
I’ve come a long way from the days of tearing Alexis to shreds. A girl can change her mind; yes?
As far as Nina—-she wasn’t barren….she gave birth, then slept for twenty years or so; unable to conceive while in a coma—-now; her eggs are few and far between; LOL.
Are you tired of the Ryan story, Shay? The thrust of it has become quite mundane; ordinary…..especially due to the incompetent, amaturish skills of the PC police department.
Has the soooo-efficient Commish tested the drivers’ licenses for finger prints? Not Franco’s!! If otherwise, then Ryan is not only a psycho, but also, a magician.
This entire fallacy does not satiate my curiosity, simply because it does not capture my interest. ……no cloak and dagger situation….all unfolding without mystery.
I soooo want it over. Besides, hypnosis works only for a flibbertigibbet such as Lulu. Cringe!!
Anyway—I doubt Rosie and I will ever fit into the same clothes—she’s tall for her age, as is her brother. I am only 5’2″, Shay—they take after their father—or my Dad and my brothers ( true Vikings!! Tall and blond, LOL)—
I do not care for football—but I got through it, amica mia—-you can imagine what went on here–half of Boston was at my house!!
It’s 3:30 AM, mia bella…so, buonanotte. ❤️

Shay
Shay

There you go again, mentioning those tall, blond men in your family….you really do know how to capture my attention don’t you CeeCeeGirl??? Now I’m having double visions of Trond Espen Seim (The Legacy) dancing in my mind as I imagine your two yummy brothers! (Speaking of that Nordic actor, I was watching his Varg Veum series last evening, and you will NOT believe who had a cameo role as a dirty old man patronizing a teenage prostitute…it was our beloved Anders Hove, aka, Faison! He looked every bit as wild and nasty as the insane Caesar! The only thing missing from the scene was a very miffed Dr. O.! Hah!) At any rate, I’m finding those envisaged images far more exciting than what is on GH these days….whilst I welcomed the Ryan/Kevin storyline simply because it echoed their previously excellent one of yesteryear, I am disappointed in it not due to JL’s magnificent dual performance in the darkly comedic tale, but the manner in which the same unnecessary characters that have nothing to do with the past have been drawn into it. (Yes, I’m referring to Ava and Nina….need I say more? By the way, what I meant when I opined that Nina should have remained barren is that after this amount of time, there should have been no mystery babies for her, period. The Kiki ship sailed eons ago, and whilst that was once a viable possibility, since then, the notion has become so moldy that it no longer matters and should have been completely abandoned.) Probably the one thing that really killed this latest Ryan caper for me was the minor role Laura, Anna and Robert Scoprio played in the course of this drama…they should have been central players in the action! Of course, I COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT ALEXIS, TOO! Call me nostalgic, but I miss those days of ripping her to shreds with you…such good times! Lol…Since it is now incumbent upon me to do it solo, here goes: I’m completely sick of this hackneyed, overly-predictible character…if she isn’t playing the pushy mamabear, then she’s doing the mouthy, overbearing feminist, SJW routine…boring! And then there’s her third…and least attractive… reliable scenario…yet another perpetual sexfest for this wanton woman….Given the newest, cookie-cutter toyboy to hit Port Charles, it looks like the latter is about to commence….oh, yuck! Spare me….PLEASE! As for Rosie, she sounds like she’s grown into a real beauty…although she may not resemble you in stature, I’ll bet she will still end up being a real chip off the old CeeCee and the world will be better for it! (Hey, there‘s always jewelry and accessories she can borrow from your “colllection!”…) At any rate, I must go now…glad to hear you had a super SuperBowl weekend! Incidentally, I hope you will get to see my posts on the Maurice/Gotti thread….I totally got what you were saying and backed up your sentiments! Later, mia amica!

Shay

@CeeCeeGirl……Did we miss each other again????? Sent you the below response a week ago along with a comment on the “Maurice/Gotti” thread. Also just saw your remarks on the Smollett issue…Touche’!

Hi Shay!!! 🙂

Hello, DMR! Welcome back….you’ve been missed! (As have your canny comments on GH…especially those regarding Parking Lot Pete!)

DMR Why do you watch?

Celia
Celia

In DMR’s defense, Rob……she watches as any-other-one of us. Loyal viewers? We are given this forum to express our feelings. Are you happy with the show? Say it in prose!! Besides, almost every poster has, at least, some negativity here and there!! Why pick on DMR?

Jimh
Jimh

Thought maybe Ryan faking the blindness so he could have a reason to be at hospital to finish off Lulu but if he is i wonder if he will still try…i suppose Kevin will escape and show up and Ava(or Laura) will confront the two Kevin’s not knowing which is which and during a cliffhanger a gun will go off…real Kevin is shot and Ryan kidnaps Ava and its Sonny who rescues her…thought dumb Jason just hesitating there-he suppose to be this smart strong guy who would had grabbed for the ledge or Sam’s hand-wish he pulled her down with him and both were swallowed by a sink hole

Celia
Celia

Hey, Jimmy,
Sounds good to me!! Sonny save Ava?…..the irony would be too hard for me to handle, LOL. I will pass out!!
Jason? How does one fall atop a big, fat, thick slab of concrete and come out unscathed? Such fantasy!!
Sam—-this intrepid duo–what rare breed!! Fascinating!! Do they break? I did appreciate Kelly’s perfect dive into the water, though….was that really Kelly or a stand-in? LOL.
I think it will be Ava who solves the case……the shoes will be the key….
I bet you she will kill Ryan!! We shall see.❤️

Jimh
Jimh

It has to be Ava or Carly or even Nina who solves the case…not Laura as she still isnt as important to the writers as the other three

Is it agism plaguing my bf Genie Francis??? Fabulous and dynamic actress.

Shay
Shay

Yes, Jimh! God forbid that once-intrepid GH heroine, Laura Vining Webber Baldwin Spencer Cassadine Baldwin Collins—Did I forget an extra Spencer in there??? Her remarriage to Luke was a faux one, after all…—-be the star of this switched twins caper, despite the fact that her husband and his brother are the central characters. Noooo…we have to have the pushy Carly, amoral Ava, nutty Nina, and even the ever-annoying Lucy, butting into this tale when it should be centered around Laura and Kevin/Ryan…period! The other four would have been the perfect victims, not the central focus, of this killer storyline! Just another missed opportunity to cull the overcrowded Port Charles canvas!

Celia
Celia

Lulu will survive….So will Ryan, from whatever ails him.
He will say the murderer tried killing both him and Lulu….And, as Lulu is recovering in hospital, Ryan will make his move–again.
Well, it could happen this way?

Okay GH If Jason wakes up with memory lost you are going to lose me along with maybe some others, enough already please let Jasam have a good moment,end this Kevin saga with his release from Ferncliff and reunited him with Laura, and what was that Ryan next victims Sonny and Carly LOL nobody fell for that, because I know you have got know Sonny dead GH will end. Also please I can’t wait for Ava to find out who killed her daughter the look on her face “Priceless”.

rebecca1
rebecca1

If Sonny died GH wouldn’t end. Not all of us are Sonny fans. And I for one would LOVE it if Carly kicked the bucket for good. Never have I hated a character so. As for Sonny? I’ve got a love/hate for him but I wouldn’t stop watching if he was gone. Matter of fact; he’s on too much.

Bren
Bren

Well let me make a correction GH will end for me. And to each his or her own I’m not a Carly hater but I wish Ryan would have killed Lulu instead of Kiki. Yes Steve Burton/Jason could carry the show he’s the only one that could hold my interest after Sonny. My comments does not go against the other actors it’s the story lines and the history between Sonny, Jason and Carly that’s got me hooked on GH. Thanks for your reply.

DMR
DMR

YES. Me too. Can’t stsnd this version of annoying Lulu.

Satan
Satan

There’s always been a “male lead” on GH. First one was Steve Hardy. Second one was Luke Spencer. Third one was Sonny Corinthos.

Steve obviously isn’t coming back, and it’s not likely that Luke is either (though he should definitely put in an appearance, since a psycho serial killer just went after his daughter).

There is nobody in Port Charles who can replace Sonny. Damn sure not Frodd. Double damn sure not the one note replacement cop “Chase”. Jason? Well, most of the people who hate Sonny also hate Jason, so they wouldn’t like that answer.

Of course Sonny has been so busy with family drama recently that he hasn’t even had time to be a mobster, so the folks who hate him for “being a criminal” need to find a new reason.

Bren
Bren

I agree.

Satan
Satan

Lulu as one of Ryan’s victims is a horrible choice. Yeah, she’s going to survive. But what makes it horrible is that we all know, if the Spencer family was being written in character (and not targeted for extinction by the current regime) Luke, Lucky, and Ethan would be arriving in Port Charles within hours of finding out Lulu was hurt. Dante would say to HELL with his idiotic “undercover assignment” (going all over the world looking for an idiotic day player criminal? Really??) And even Nikolas… who we all know isn’t really dead… would come out of hiding for his little sister – just like he did when she was a sick baby.

But of course none of that is going to happen. So what’s the point of dragging Lulu into this?

rebecca1
rebecca1

Because she’s Laura’s daughter, Kevin’s stepdaughter. Kevin’s guilt once release will be unbearable…the deaths…the almost death of Lulu, etc. I think she was a fine choice. Had to be a major character for his last hurrah…or attempted hurrah…why not her?

I wished that it would be Carly and that he’d actually killed her, but alas, sadly, that’s not going to happen…and yes, I knew it wouldn’t. A girl can dream….

Bren
Bren

What about Ava why do you hate Carly so much.

Harry
Harry

Rebecca, Satan is referring to the fact that Hubby Dante, Daddy Luke, Brother Lucky and Brother Ethan all would have rushed to Lulu’s side in a NY minute upon hearing of her condition. On another note, I continue to miss Julie Berman. For me, she will always be the real Lulu.

Linda

“I see they’ve bagged your shoes up – I’m going to be helpful and take them and get you slippers,” said. no. one. ever. OMG

rebecca1

LOL; thought that, too. But since the cops got the footprints they had to get his shoes…or not.

Rodd
Rodd

So true. I think they’ll find that the show\es were custom made and finally get a list that has Kevin’s name on it. They’ll go looking for him just as he’s about to kill again.

Carol Oller

Rewound program Three times and still didn’t see how Lucy disabled Ryan to get out of office past him

Steve
Steve

Assuming you meant Lulu and not Lucy. Ryan blacked out briefly from the same type of headache Anna got. Similarly, he immediately lost his sight and was not able to scrub the crime scene like he usually does.

Now, if Jason goes temporarily blind around the time of his fall, this will all connect with the twin experiment.

With lots of discussion on mind control, let’s hope they follow through and make Alex Peter’s mother, which would finally make the plot line make a bit of sense.

Harry
Harry

Thanks Steve. It seems Ryan is suffering from the same disease as Anna. Could this be a twin thing? If so, that could mean Jason and Drew might be next.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Harry, makes sense, but I’ve read that Jason goes blind next, so how does that fit in? What about Keven going blind at Ferncliff

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Harry, I’ve read that Jason loses his sight next, so you may be on to something, and I’am wondering if Kevin at Ferncliff also loses his sight, that would set off a lot of warning bells.
Another thing, is Kevin’s name is on Robert’s report, so wouldn’t he be the liar, not Ryan?

Harry
Harry

Violet, I am assuming Ryan just didn’t know about Kevin’s affiliation with that doctor which is why he said no.

Shay
Shay

Oh, dear Lord, yes, please make Alex the mother of Faison’s spawn….the indignity of Anna having birthed him is just too much to bear!

Harry
Harry

Shay, I like how you think. If they had to suddenly make Anna the mother of a grown son, why not let him be Griffin–Duke’s son? This would give her unmitigated job instead of this relentless heart ache. Anna cannot mention Peter’s name without dissolving into a pool of tears. The character destruction of Anna Devane has been devastating. If you told me I’d be fast forwarding through her scenes, I would tell you that you were crazy. But I am and you’re not……crazy, that is. Yesterday, the debonair, witty, and handsome Robert Scorpio saunters into the hospital to give her important information regarding the virus she contracted and she doesn’t even act happy to see him. In fact, she acts irritated with him. She only has goo-goo eyes for her Faison’s son and for Infinity. I cannot stand her with Infinity either–nothing against either one of them but they are as dull as dishwater together. I would rather watch my robo-vacuum interact with my robo-mop.

Shay
Shay

@Harry…Your last sentence perfectly illustrates how dire and stale Anna’s current existence really is….to think that one of GH’s most dynamic, iconic heroines of all time has been reduced to an uninspired, emotional wreck who dissolves into tears at the drop of a hat (over her dastardly drip of a son…) is quite surreal for those of us who’ve folllowed her storied spycapades from their exciting inception. Whoever decided to saddle this poor woman with Faison’s despicable offspring deserves a thousand lashes, especially when, as you have observed, Griffin was such a suitable candidate as her long-lost child with the beloved Duke…In addition to being a dreamy and believable choice as the physical manifestation of their enduring bond, he also shared a palpable chemistry with the once Divine Devane as a prospective mother-son duo….Instead of the strife Anna now feels because of the highly-revolting presence of Peter who was fathered by a madman, she would have derived comfort in the knowledge that a part of Duke had lived on in the form of the (previously) noble priest/doctor borne of their legendary love….One would think that such a scenario would have been a no-brainer given the vivid contrast between those two prospective progenies! As for how anyone could not visibly brighten at the appearance of the charming and sexy Scorpio is beyond me…the man still has it! Lastly, I just wanted to add that you were spot on in your prior comment regarding the present incarnation of Lulu…despite the fact I like Emme the actress, she will always be “NuLu” to me, whilst Julie Ann Berman’s original version remains “TruLu,” now…and forever!

DMR
DMR

One of the worst characters EVER. Would rather have Casey the Alien return, than this goof.

Shay
Shay

Amen, DMR! I actually didn’t mind Casey despite his offbeat origins…at least the actor playing him was quite likeable!!! (But then, I was already a fan, as Bradley Lockerman had previously played the ultra-cool “Zed Diamond” on “Capitol.”)

rebecca1
rebecca1

Are you talking about Lulu getting out of the office? He was about to finish off the job but he got the same painful headache Anna got and collapsed…went blind…that’s how she got out of the office past him.

Patrick
Patrick

so this is what they meant when they said two others unrelated to … their ho hum story.. will be afflicted ? ie: w/ Anna blindness

Kevin AND Jason… or could it be Drew ? his memories back ?

Satan

It’s not likely that Drew would get his memories back from temporary blindness. But if Drew (or his twin brother Jason, for that matter) had the virus, then if they also go with the idea that this mystery virus could be used to fight Oscar’s brain tumor, then you would have either Daddy Drew or Uncle Jason (or perhaps both) as compatible blood donors. Just give Oscar a pint or two of blood already infused with the virus and put it to work on the tumor.

It would be slightly science-fictiony, but compared to brain mapping, not really. It’s actually within the realms of current medical science to use a virus as an experimental cancer treatment, though this blindness virus probably isn’t among the ones currently being looked at in the real world medical labs.

Have Anna and Ryan have frequented the same “places”, other than in PC?—–doesn’t seem likely….what’s the link? Twins? Is it a “twin” thing? Hmmmm. If so, then Kevin, Alex and the two Jasons may also be afflicted?…..or is it a mere coincidence?
This is as silly as the chimera illusion—-or should I say, Delusion?!

Shay

Yes, CeeCee…it would seem to be a “twin thing,” indeed! (Courtesy of Faison’s famous fascination of birthed baby doubles….)Thus, you—-and Elle!—-should best stay away from Port Charles for the time being!

I thought about Faison too. Maybe something he left behind like Helena did I don’t know please can we end the evil let them stay dead.

Awww, Bren! I miss the incomparably insane Helena!!! She was so deliciously deranged that I’m still awaiting with bated breath her return from the dead (again!) At the very least, I was hoping that Cassandra would prove to be her secret offspring and heir apparent for carrying on her penchant for Baroque revenge!

Celia

Well, Shay, TPTB better have an interesting storyline, explaining another beyond-reality development—-oh, yeah….you can be sure Giselle and I will not go near PC. LOL.
Sightseeing in this town is probably limited to sewers-turned-catacombs and Pier 54. Oh, wait……there’s Shiloh’s House of Spirituality…Ha!!
Ciao, amichetta.❤️

Oh yeah, CeeCee, Shiloh’s den of iniquity is about as spiritual as that real-life house of horrors where the head honcho was branding those chickadees with his mark of ownership… Kudos to Catherine Oxenberg for rescuing her daughter from his clutches and blowing the whistle on that evil operation….

Ingo Rademacher Returns As GH’s Jax Beginning In May

Things will get more interesting in the lives of Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Carly (Laura Wright), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and many others on the GH canvas with the arrival back in Port Charles of Jasper Jacks.  That’s because as previously announced, Ingo Rademacher is headed back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise his signature role.

Circle May 7th for when you will see Jax back in action.  According to EW.com. “He’s back to see his daughter Josslyn and ex-wife Carly”   Jax will also share scenes with Steve Burton (Jason) and of course Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Looks like Jax may be back to help out Josslyn in her time of need as her boyfriend Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) final days seem to be drawing near, or does something else also bring his attention back to Port Charles?

It’s been a bit since Ingo played Jax on GH having last appeared on the soap in April of 2017.  Ingo eventually landed the role as the recast Thorne Forrester on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, a part he played till December of 2018.

Back in March, the actor originally from down under shared on his Instagram account: “Won’t be long now.  Just had my fitting. All new look for Jax. Start shooting next week. No air date yet. Stay tuned. Can’t wait!”

So, excited for some Jax on GH? What do you think will bring him back? What do you think will keep him in town? Comment below.

GH’s Coby Ryan McLaughlin Talks: Shiloh’s ‘Dawn Of Day’ Followers, Playing A Cult Leader, And His Co-Stars

Ever since the arrival in Port Charles of the mysterious “David Henry Archer” (Hank) now better known now as “Shiloh” (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), the minds of several members of the community have been revealed to, or have fallen under his spell.

For Shiloh is the cult leader of the group “Dawn of Day”.  He wields his manipulative skills to entrap unsuspecting people in his quest for power and control.   And make no mistake about it … he certainly has a target for Sam (Kelly Monaco), and an ax to grind with her.   For in her past, “the con-artist” Sam apparently swindled Shiloh’s father leaving him with next to nothing.  In addition to that, it has been noted, that Shiloh shared combat time in Afghanistan with Drew Cain (Billy Miller), before changing his name and coming to the town, where says he owes Drew for saving his life.

In story, one of his most loyal followers, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) was to be initiated in the inner-circle of the cult, and after drinking from the cup as part of the ritual which drugged her, she was saved by Jason (Steve Burton ) who got her out of the “Dawn of Day” house and to a secret location, leaving Shiloh infuriated and needing to cover his tracks.  As the story has played out, we learn that Brad (Parry Shen) has also been bitten by the “Dawn of Day” bug and believes in Shiloh’s musing.  So much so that he wiped the evidence from the cup Krisina drank out of that Jason provided to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) for testing in the hospital.  The GH audience has also learned that Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) was one of Shiloh’s favorite former members of the cult.  She has revealed she had a child with the guy (the baby she thinks is being raised by Brad) and needs to make sure he never finds out.  But, does Shiloh secretly know?

When we last saw Shiloh on Thursday’s episode of GH, he went into the files of the “Dawn of Day” followers and found Kristina’s.  He opened it, and we finally learn her “pledge” – a deep rooted secret from her past that one must share as part of the journey with the cult.  It revealed, that Shiloh knows that Kristina was abused by her former boyfriend Kiefer and that her mother, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) ran him down and killed him with her car.  Kristina knows about it first-hand, because she saw it happen as she was in the car with Alexis.  What will Shiloh eventually do with this Intel?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Coby Ryan McLaughlin, who has been the catalyst for much of the latest trouble brewing on-screen on GH about: the complexities of playing such a dynamic, and yet terrifying character, what has it been like mixing it up with the stellar cast of the ABC daytime drama series, and what he thinks Shiloh’s next move might be.  Here’s what Coby had to say about all and more!

What do you think about the reaction of the GH audience to Shiloh?  Is it what you expected?

COBY:  I’ve never really played a bad guy like this.  It’s interesting playing a villain because they love to hate you.  I’ll go on Instagram every now and then and throw elbows at the fans.  It’s really a trip.  The thing I like about this guy is that he’s not completely diabolical.  There are other things going on with this guy; he has other agendas as well.  It’s interesting seeing people react to what it is that I am doing while I have a storyline that is playing out.

Courtesy/ABC

It’s is a bit of a trip as you say; because you have to, in many ways, be subtle in the manipulation as a cult leader would do.  Did you do any research on cult leaders before stepping into Shiloh’s shoes?

COBY:  I didn’t do much when I initially got the part, because I actually know some people like this.  I think as actors, one of the most interesting parts of our jobs is that we just get to sit back and observe things about people’s behaviors.  There are certain people who I have come across where my “Spidey senses” start tingling, and you think, “Well, I’m not going to get involved with this person, but what a fascinating individual.  This behavior is so fascinating.”  However, once I started this gig, yes, I did do research.   I’ll tell you, the one thing that a lot of these guys have in common is that they are extraordinarily exuberant.  They have just this energy about them, and they are seemingly humble.  They have these grandiose visions and these delusions of grandeur, but they do it in a way where you’re like, “Huh.  That almost seems kind of normal.”  In order to get a large number of people to follow you, you’ve got to be charismatic, you’ve got to be saying something that people really tap into and want to hear.  The behavior and psychology behind it are really interesting.  I watched this one documentary and these people literally had no idea … until they did.  They literally had no idea that they were in a cult until they woke up, and they were like, “Holy s**t.  This isn’t right.  This doesn’t feel right.”   Shiloh is an interesting role to play, and it’s written so straight down the line that I really don’t have to push anything, because the guy is written as what he is.   It’s really cool to be able to find all of the little things in that character, so I try to make him a whole bunch of different things to different people.

Did you know from the beginning that Shiloh would turn out to be this cult leader in the “Dawn of Day” storyline?  Who did you screen-test with that landed you the part?

COBY:  No, I didn’t know what he was going to be in the beginning.  I knew that he had an agenda, and when Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) told me that he was going to be a cult leader, I was like, “Oh, okay.  I know what I want to do.”   I have always had the opinion that cult leaders don’t come off bad… they’ve got to be likable.  You have to be able to relate to them in a way.  You have to be able to look at them and be like, “Ah well, maybe in certain circumstances what this guy is doing is okay.”  You have to be able to almost justify some of the behavior until you can’t anymore.  I screen tested with Laura Wright (Carly), and she is really fantastic.  We sit in the makeup chair and shoot the breeze all the time.

So, is Shiloh infatuated with Sam?   What does he ultimately want from her?

COBY:  Yes, but he wants a lot. (Laughs) There’s a lot of backstory to him and what really brought him to Port Charles.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I have conversations all of the time about what this guy really is, and what his ultimate goals are, and that may change.  I think that Shiloh is a guy who has come to find his power, and the more powerful he gets, the more he wants.   You know, I’ve become a fan of General Hospital now.  I never watched the show before I got this gig.  I was a Days of our Lives guy years ago.  Don’t tell anybody. (Laughs).

Okay… we will not tell. (Laughs) Ah, sorry!  That’s got to be in the interview! (Laughs)

COBY:  All of  sudden, I will get a message from HR saying, “You’ve been great, but…” (Laughs)   But as to what Shiloh wants with Sam, you know I will read the scripts in advance, and I’ll start creating certain these things for myself in my own mind, such as: “What if he wanted to screw over Sam because of what she did to his father?”  What if it started like that, but all of the sudden he’s coming into some prominence and he wants to go after Sonny’s empire, and what if he wants to run the whole town and screw everybody…?”  I go through this whole thing.  It could literally go anywhere at any time, which is so cool about the soap world.

Without revealing what it is, do you have an idea of what the endgame is for Shiloh, or do you not?

COBY:  No, I don’t.  I think that it changes.  This is a really malleable medium, I’m coming to discover.  I think that nothing is set in stone.  I ultimately know what I want… just because I ultimately think that the foundation of the whole thing is rooted deep within this individual’s character: his emotional makeup, and how he was treated.  There is a lot of revenge going on with this guy, but there is a lot more than that.  He’s not just motivated by revenge.

Courtesy/ABC

Something had to have happened to him, of course, because you know how it works in soap operas!?  If you’re completely evil or bad, and even if you do horrendous things, and they want to keep you on the show, they have to find a way to humanize the character.  Otherwise, you’re there to cause trouble for a time, and you’re killed-off.  Shiloh’s tentacles seem more far-reaching then viewers first suspected.  He has this thing for Willow, who used to be in the cult, and now he’s got Brad under this thumb. What did you think about how much Shiloh is intertwined with and affecting the Port Charles canvas right now?

COBY:  I think that he is an apex predator.  I think that he sees certain people, and he knows how to utilize them for what he wants.  It’s kind of like a chess game.  He knows where Brad is.  He’s always wanted Willow, because it’s the one that got away, so there are certain things he uses as a means to an end, and there are certain things that I think he wants just for himself.  I think the relationships that he creates with this “higher-ups” in the town are because he knows he can utilize them, and there are some personal relationships that he keeps personal.  Shiloh has his own reasons for doing what he does, especially with Willow.  I think he was grooming her to be something.  Just the fact that she left him … really bothers him.

Photo: ABC

He doesn’t know that Willow had his child, or does he … hmmm? 

COBY:  No, not as far as we know.

If he was to know, what do you think he would do?

COBY:  Well …  you’re just going to have to watch and find out.

So, when you found out that there was this major initiation going on which included: the drugging of Kristina, the huge payment she made to be in Shiloh’s inner-circle, and how he was preying on her vulnerability, were you like, “Oh my, God! They’re really going all the way with this cult thing?”

COBY:  No.  We kind of alluded to it, and it has to go all the way.   I wasn’t surprised when I read that in the script.  This is this guy’s MO.  He gets what he wants.

Courtesy/ABC

Shiloh’s s really upset that Kristina is missing and has figured that Jason kidnapped her.  He wants her back in the fold, correct?

COBY:  He does want her back, but he wants her back for a variety of reasons … and not just the fact that she reminds him of Willow.  That’s part of it, but I personally believe that he wants her back, because as I mentioned earlier it’s all about chess pieces for him.  He sets up the prominent people in his organization, so he can set them up to expand his means and to expand his agenda … to motivate his agenda, because there is a bigger picture to all of this.  Kristina is a Corinthos and she is part of the most powerful family in Port Charles, so there is that as well.  He wants to be able to have that power hold over that towns that he is in.

Many in the audience are wondering if Shiloh having sex with Kristina was a key part of his plan.  Is that part of his ritual?  Having sex with women upon initiation into his “inner circle”… or is that a grey area?

COBY:  Here is the thing, everything is consensual with him … that’s where his charm comes into play, that’s where sense of power comes into play.  So, with these women, nothing is forced.  There is not coercion …  at all!   So, yes, its alluded that he sleeps with them, but we don’t necessarily know if that is true for all of them … or…. if it is just for the ones that he takes a liking to.   The other thing we know; is that this guy is also a megalomaniac, so it’s also an exertion of power as well.  What I tried to do with it was not make it so completely overt.   He is a bit of a jerk, but I don’t want it to overstep that boundary of being tasteless.  I think you can go too far with it, so that is one of the reasons that we alluded to the fact that it was always consensual, and people what to be with him for one reason, or another.

Courtesy/ABC

That’s why there was an important conversation written into the script with Jason, Sam, and Michael (Chad Duell) about how there is no way to nail Shiloh for a crime because he is so cagey with every move he makes.

COBY:  Yeah, you could say cagey, I say smart.

Now, Jason is his target.  Would you say there are even more underlying reasons that the obvious of why he dislikes Jason so much? Does he really have an axe to grind with him?

COBY:  I think he likes messing with people, and I think if he is unable to exert his power, or his will, or his control, over somebody, it really annoys him.  The stuff with Steve Burton is rather fun!  Shiloh can’t manipulate Jason like he can manipulate these girls, or the way he manipulates Brad, because Jason just operates on a whole different level.  I think that Shiloh finds it fascinating that he can’t get to him.   Shiloh also wants to get him out of the way, because he can’t out-muscle him.  Even if I could, the writers wouldn’t allow it. (Laughs) So, that’s never going to happen.  As Shiloh, I have to out-think him, because I want him out of the picture.   Shiloh sees Jason as an obstacle and he wants him out of the way, and he will do it by any means necessary, via him or with his kids… anyway that he can, because he can’t get at him on his level, because the playing field isn’t equal.

Courtesy/ABC

What about Shiloh’s relationship with Drew (Billy Miller)?  What does he truly feel about him? 

COBY:  I have this conversation with Frank Valentini all the time.  I think the relationship I have with Drew might be the only true relationship I have with anybody.  I think that Drew really did what Shiloh said that he did.  I think Drew really saved his life, and he does really want to pay that debt back.  I think therein really lies the contradiction with this guy.  It makes it difficult for him to operate.  I think he is conflicted on some levels because he is one guy to Drew, and he is a different guy to everybody else.  I think the way Shiloh is with Drew is real.  In his past, I think that Shiloh was completely fatalistic and reckless and didn’t care if he lived or died, and Drew did save his life, and he gave him a purpose.  However, I also think that he is such a damaged individual.  He needs that feeling of safety by exuding his power and control over others.  The writers have alluded to the fact that he has this other life, and that he was a broken individual, and turned his life around and came back from the brink of dying, of killing myself, of not caring.  So, with Drew, I don’t want to manipulate him.  I don’t want to use him.  I am truly just grateful for the fact that he allowed me another chance at life.  I love working with Billy, because that’s when I get to be human.  I’m not trying to gaslight him.  I’m not trying to get something from him – well, I’ll take that back, because I am trying to get something from him.  I’m just not trying to do it in a way that I go about it with the other characters.  There is a huge amount of respect between the two of us.

Unfortunately, Drew doesn’t remember anything about their past, which puts “pause” in believing Shiloh’s war stories.

COBY:  Yet.  (Laughs). Well, we’ve been alluding to the fact of, “What if he did this? What if he went back into his memories?  What if he were able to remember?  There are a lot of “What if’s …”  So, they keep a lot of balls in the air with this relationship.

What has it been like working with Lexi Ainsworth in this story, because she has been the main character so far drawn into the cult? 

COBY:  She’s great.  I love Lexi.  She is so easy, fun, and safe, and just a really nice person.  We sit and chat all of the time and talk about what it is that we want from each other in the scene and how it’s going to work.   Everyone is great.   Kaetlyn MacMullan is so much fun as well as Willow.  As an actor, it’s really fun when you get people who really want to play and want to go.

And, what are your thoughts on working with GH favorite, Kelly Monaco, who is key in your storyline?

COBY:  Kelly is rad.  We talk about being able to “play jazz” all of the time, which means being able to go into a scene and just riff and have a good time, because there is so much dialog that you have to learn.  I mean, that dialogue is nuts, and sometimes you forget halfway through a page-long monologue when you are at 27 pages in.  That’s when it’s wonderful to have a really good dance partner who can pick you up.  There are times where I get so off script, and I’m like, “Holy s**t!  Where am I going with this?” (Laughs) I have got really good people like Lexi, Katelyn, or Kelly who have my back and that just makes it fun.

Some actors like to watch back their work, while others don’t.  Do you check out your performances on GH?

COBY:  Yeah.  Somebody on Instagram, this wonderful fan, will take all of the Shiloh’s scenes and post them!  Shockingly, I don’t own a television, so I don’t watch the show that way.

Do you make changes or adjustments once you see your work?

COBY:  Not really.  I made a decision to keep it real low-key with this, and just try to play everything real.   The other thing is I had never done anything like this before in my career.  I was so intimated by this whole thing, that it was like, “Alright man.  Just get in and listen.  Listen to what your scene partners are saying to you.”  In my approach, I am trying to be as still as I can possibly be and let whatever that person is saying motivate my responses and my actions.  If I watch my work, I’m like, “Yeah, that makes sense to me; I like that.  That’s something that this individual would do.”  Shiloh controls every situation that he is in, and even when he is introduced to new characters, he doesn’t wait to be introduced, he’ll just walk up and say, “Hi, I’m Shiloh!  What’s new with you?  How’s it going?” (Laughs) He kind of disarms them in every scene he is in.

Photo: IMDB

Soap fans first saw you on The Young and the Restless in your stint as Andrew working alongside Eileen Davidson (Ashley).  How was that experience for you?

COBY:  Eileen was unreal.  She was really cool, because none of this phased her.  She had been doing daytime so long that it was just a thing to her.  I’d sit there and read my scripts over and over and over again, but she just knew how to do it.  It was so easy for her, that it made it easy for me.

In a broad stroke, what would you tells the fans to look forward to with Shiloh?

COBY:  Well, Shiloh is going to continue his agenda.  He is going to have to go about it in a different way.  There are things going down right now (and I won’t spoil it) that are going to change the way he operates, and he is going to have to get what he wants in a different way.  Some of the people who you would have thought that he trusted, have turned against him.  It just all makes it more fun for him because this is a huge game.  Even the stuff with Sam, you may think that you know where it is going, but it may not be.  So, as much as he is enamored by Sam, he has an agenda with her.

So, what do you think will be Shiloh’s next move?  Will he blackmail Alexis to get Kristina back at “Dawn of Day”? What is his plan for Sam? Is Shiloh connected to a key family in Port Charles, but it has yet to be revealed? Who else do you think might wind up in the cult? Finally, are you enjoying Coby’s performance on GH?
