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?

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

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?

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!

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…..

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!!… Read more »

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… Read more »

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….

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”.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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??)

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….

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.

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

Steve
Guest
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
Guest

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.

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
Guest
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
Guest
Harry

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

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
Guest
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… Read more »

@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… Read more »

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.

This is as silly as the chimera illusion—-or should I say, Delusion?!

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
