GENERAL HOSPITAL: Rory Gets Hooked, Ava’s Stunned by Nikolas’ Latest ‘Bombshell’

Courtesy/ABC

Thursday’s episode of General Hospital featured great performances by Maura West and Nicholas Alexander Chavez. Meanwhile, we finally got some ‘hook’ action and things don’t look so good for Officer Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse) when all was said and done.

In story, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) is concerned that Rory’s shift at the PCPD had ended, but he was nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Rory, who is at the apartment in the ‘hook’ file, fires his gun when just then the hook strikes! Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) rushes on to the scene and finds one man down from a gunshot wound, and then Rory, who stumbles out of the other room and says, it was “the hook”.

Rory is severely injured and bleeding out, and Dante and the officers with him decide not to wait for the paramedics and take Rory to the hospital themselves.

Meanwhile, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) shows up at Ava’s (Maura West) gallery and is about to enact his plan.  He hands Ava divorce papers. Ava thinks Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) is behind this.  A confused Ava thought they were moving past their troubles and doesn’t understand what is motivating Nikolas to do this to them. Nikolas tells Ava’s he’s been unfaithful to her, yet again, and this time with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).  But there’s more he says, Liz is pregnant with his child.  Now we all know months from now, Liz and Nikolas’ plan will blow up in their faces  … or will it sooner than that?

Ava is shattered and begins questioning Nikolas, what he got from Elizabeth that he couldn’t get from her … a child? He says the sex was an accident, but he won’t be responsible for failing another child of his, so he wants her to sign the divorce papers.  An angry Ava throws a letter opener at the legal papers.  As he leaves, Nikolas swears he never meant to hurt Ava. Honestly, is Nikolas become the biggest doofus in Port Charles?

Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) who has just punched Dex (Evan Hofer), exits Kelly’s Diner and runs into Trina (Tabyana Ali).  The two sit and talk. Spencer explains he was just standing up for his friends with that punch, and then informs Trina he is leaving Port Charles. He goes to say there is nothing keeping him in town as he has made so many mistakes here.  Just as ‘Sprina’ seems to be beginning to work through some feelings, Curtis (Donnell Turner) shows up with the news that Rory is in critical condition at GH.

Finn (Michael Easton), Portia (Brooke Kerr) and Elizabeth work to save Rory’s life, injecting him with the anti-venom to help him from the ‘hook’ poison.  When Spencer, Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Cameron (William Lipton) and Trina all arrive at GH, Portia tells Trina that Rory has a lost a lot of blood.

An emotional Trina runs to the gurney to see Rory. He takes off his oxygen mask long enough to tell her, that he knows it was too soon to tell her how he felt about her, but he’s glad he did.  Next thing you know, he codes.

So, what did you think about Rory getting the hook? Will he be revived? What do you think of the story Nikolas and Elizabeth are spinning because of Esme supposedly pregnant with Nikolas’ child? What did you think of the performances of Maura West and Nicholas Alexander Chavez? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, watch a key part of the showdown between Ava and Nikolas below.

I was interrupted from listening to GH today, but could watch while on mute. After reading the summary I haven’t even bothered to see a YouTube repeat of today. What a disappointment most GH stories have turned into for me. And no amount of good acting can change that. Now for a good finale, Brooke and other wife on B&B giving Ridge his walking papers together was great. Hope the ladies can stay true to them.

I do agree with you, Rose—-the stupid, senseless intricacies of the Nikolas/Ava/Esme/ Elizabeth/Finn plot is not a mouth-watering delicacy—-Albeit, so glad to see Lizzie’s and Finn’s “interlude” end. He gets on my last nerve—
So, Rory wasn’t the hook—or was he? The hook itself was raised pretty high—a copy cat? I know it’s supposedly a woman—-could there be two “Hookers”? Ryan is still on my mind!!
Oh, one more thing—Trina’s emotional state was so forced—-and her crying was not a pretty or convincing sight. Just sayin’.

Hi Celia…You’ve always been suspicious of Rory. There is something about him that seemed too perfect. I’m not sure he was the “ hooker,” but why did he stumble out of the back room when Dante broke down the door? Did the police ever check the back room for anyone else? Was the guy Rory shot the “hooker? I don’t remember anyone finding the hook on the floor. ”I just can’t see it being a woman. It would take a lot of strength. On the other had there was always the poison on the hook to finish the job. Holly… Read more »

To be honest, Rose—I’m not even sure the writers have a “hook” in mind—they’re probably gathering ideas from our comments, LOL. I wonder what possessed Rory to look into the file Jordan handed him. Whatever was in it compelled him to go to “that” apartment. I’m somewhat confused by that— Would it be too out-of-reach to think that because Rory was the hook, he wanted to see who the copy cat was? One way or another, at the risk of upsetting those who liked him, Rory did not strike me as sincere. As you said, he was just too sweetly… Read more »

Elizabeth saying she.is pregnant is a true head-scratcher! She is trying to protect Esme? For what????!!! She and Doofus ruin the lives of the two people they supposedly love!

I’ve never been sweet, nice Liz fan. She is sure being featured now from revelations about her parents, Finn, and now getting involved with Nikolas and Esme that can effect even her boyzs. She is always getting herself into trouble since day one. And get over herself re her dad and mom.

rose,
No fan here either and right now she’s acting dumber than I’ve ever seen her and all for what? Seriously, someone explain it to me!

Lew S,
My question exactly. Why is she protecting both of these people. It’s just prolonging the agony, especially telling and letting the dummy tell Ava such a stupid lie.

Yeah I don’t get that either. I missed something, when did Liz tell nick her pregnancy story? For the record I liked Finn and Liz in the beginning, but they have really messed them up. I did love the 2 or so episodes with Liz and her dad.
As far as the hook goes I want it to be esme, and Celia’s questions about rory were on my mind too.

Been waiting all week for a new GH thread to discuss what’s been all over soap Twitter – the yet-to-be confirmed rumor that Marcus Coloma is out as Nikolas. While I don’t wish anyone to be out of a job, this is a move that is overdue. The character of Nikolas has been unrecognizable, and only a small part of that blame goes to the writers. Just today, Maura West (who always brings it without chewing the scenery) made us feel Ava’s pain. Nikolas was there but didn’t make viewers feel anything one way or another. As a legacy character,… Read more »

If Tyler Christopher wants to return as Nikolas, then bring him in. If not, the character can go back to Cassadine Island for a while. No more recasts, for Hell’s sake!. It’s completely realistic that Nikolas might want to disappear right about now, given all this mess with Esme, which now has Liz & Ava dragged into it, and all the fake stories about who knocked up who. So maybe he leaves town for a little bit, and when he comes back to Port Charles in a few months, he will look & act a little more like his old… Read more »

Like your suggestion about having an Alcazar connection.

Tyler returning is not up to Frank. He’d have to seriously lobby Disney corporate about the insurance risk and its related budget implications.

I could see Nikolas go away for a bit. That might ensure Lulu coming out of her 2-year coma in time for the end of February sweeps. Laura has to have one child on the canvas.

Super unhappy if Rory is off the show. I am one of the few who adores his character and prefers Trina with Rory. I had a thought that maybe Rory injured himself because he is the hook killer and it has gone awry but I don’t want Rory to be the hook killer. I have always wanted Esme to be the hook killer but now think it’s Eileen. Maura and Nicholas both really deserve Emmy nominations and definitely a win for Chavez – it will be interesting to see if he submits in lead or supporting as he isn’t eligible… Read more »

There is still the possibility Rory is the “Hooker”, afterall, Richard. I’ve always suspected him—but, the thought faded, then it came back, then faded—it’s a vicious circle. LOL.

I’m with you, Richard. I really liked Rory, an uncommonly NICE person.. a rarity on soaps. I read somewhere that Michael has been cast on CHICAGO PD, so at least he won’t be unemployed. But I’ll miss his sweet face and kind manner.

I too like Rory, and it was nice seeing an asian character but what does GH do? they kill him off, dissappointing, for sure, and on another note I can’t stand Joslyn drooling all over big head Dex they are making her into Carly 2.0. how predictable for her to go for the “bad boy”. Cameron deserves better, they should bring Emma back to the show, isn’t she in college now? come on GH. Bring back Emma.

aria,
Joslin is certainly growing up just like her mother. She’s outgrown Cameron for quite a while now. He’s more boy than man right now and Joss sees that, I know he’ll be very hurt when he sees the light. Joss is leading him on the same way her girlfriend did with Rory.

I’m sure it didn’t help Rory the way they stood him up and dragged him out on his feet like that, they could have carried him, there was enough men.

Really disappointed that they killed off Rory ): They didn’t develop his character enough but I loved him anyway. GH has a problem with having such a large cast and yet they obsess over their worst characters (Sonny and Carly, and now Drew) instead of giving interesting storylines to so many talented performers on their canvas. Rory was interesting and had real potential. The only good news is that it looks like he wasn’t the hook killer, unless we are being led down a garden path (they didn’t actually show what happened). I hope Michael Blake Kruse gets better roles… Read more »

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
