GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sam Shoots Shiloh, Carly In Labor, Nina & Valentin’s Wedding Approaches

Courtesy/ABC

Last week on General Hospital there were some major developments for the characters of Port Charles.  First and foremost, it looks like Shiloh’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) reign of terror has come to an end, thanks to Sam (Kelly Monaco), the person he came after from the very beginning when he arrived on the scene in Port Charles.

After a major confrontation where Shiloh admits to Sam that he killed his father, and then comes after her where it looks like he might rape her. Jason (Steve Burton) saves the day and shoots Shiloh, but guess what? Shiloh was wearing a bullet-proof vest and he is not done … by a long shot.  Later, Shiloh attacks Jason with a bat on the deck of the ‘Haunted Star’, and after a struggle … where Shiloh sneers he has been waiting to kill Jason for a long time, Sam shoots Shiloh in the back with a flare gun.  Next, Shiloh screams and goes overboard, but did he, like many others, survive the steely waters of Port Charles?

Turns out looks like Shiloh is soap opera dead, ‘dead’, as a gurney is wheeled into General Hospital with a body bag on it.  Chase (Josh Swickard) is along with the body and says he cannot confirm it’s Shiloh until a proper ID is made.  Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) is there at the hospital and say she will do it.  And, she tells all that this is the body of “David Henry Archer… Shiloh”.

However, a nurse who looks a little suspicious was tending to Sam’s wound at the hospital, and the next thing you know she gets in touch with Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry)at the PCPD.  Earlier, said nurse, had a flashback to Jason and Sam talking about how Shiloh was killed.  Is this nurse part of a contingency plan Shiloh left behind to stick it to Jason and Sam if he should get killed? Could be! But, Sam is then called by Jordan to come down to the PCPD to answer some more questions.  Will Sam go to jail for shooting Shiloh?

While all of this is going down, Carly (Laura Wright) goes into premature labor, which is not good.  Now she is faced with having a c-section two weeks earlier than planned and is very scared.  Jason is there at the hospital with her, until Sonny (Maurice Benard) arrives.  Now that Carly and Sonny are together; will their baby survive?

Elsewhere, Liz (Rebecca Herbst) continues to fight for Franco (Roger Howarth), but feels she has to have him locked up in a psychiatric facility in order to protect him.  He is very enraged because he believes he is truly Drew Cain.  Will Liz’s plan to get the man back she loves work, or backfire, and send him into the waiting arms of Kim (Tamara Braun)?

And finally, the wedding day of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) is fast approaching, talks of Bachelor and Bachelorette parties is happening and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is ready to unburden her secret – that she is not the bio-daughter of Nina!  Will the secret come out before the nuptials? At the nuptials? Will Valentin and Nina tie-th- knot? And Valentin has more trouble ahead as the codicil to Mikkos Cassadine could play a big part in bringing him down.  If Laura (Genie Francis), Hayden (Rebecca Budig) or Curtis (Donnell Turner) can find it, it could mean Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel) is the rightful heir to the Cassadine fortune and all that comes with it.

So, what did you think about the shooting of Shiloh? Glad he is gone for good?  Will Sam be sent to prison?  Do you think Carly’s baby will be OK? Will Liz get Franco back anytime soon? And do you think Sasha will come clean with Nina? Share your thoughts via the comment section below as we head into a new week on GH.

A bullet proof vest. GOTCHA! A flare gun. Who got who huh? A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Especially when it’s shared by three people. LOL. A fake daughter and a fake Last Will and Testament. I’m sorry but…ZZZZZZZ!

Well I think Carly’s doctor is going to be the one hot tab Martin! He will bring some well needed levity to the show. Every one loves Michael Knight. I think Carly‘s baby with the spina bifida will be a intriguing story line and a learning lesson for all of us about this disease. General Hospital always has lessons to learn for us. I do agree that Jason and Sam need a story and Sam needs to smile. She is not Jason. I love the babies switch story and I assume it will be heating up for the November sweeps.… Read more »

Helena2 I don’t understand what you meant by Carly’s Dr.??I like Michael Knight too, but he seems awful creepy in this part. I don’t know about a tornado, but a hurricane would be more likely in N.Y. I like Spinelli too but a little bit of him goes a long way. He can be exhausting. I hope it all goes well with the new baby, but that’s not likely. And do we really want to lose Kim? Those shoulders could easily hold 4-5 hangers on each one. Yea I know, Iam so bad. Oh and I don’t see Nina and… Read more »

Hi, Miss Violet—–I am worse….please do not let my tongue loose—-I try my best to hold back. LOL We shall see on which side of the wall Michael ends up—-West? East? Good? Bad? I want Kim gone—-cannot stomach her–didn’t like her on Days, either. There’s something about her that turns me right off—I love Roger and I did enjoy Feanco for a while—especially when paired with Stafford’s Nina—-but, the last year or so? He’s hitting my ‘unsympathetic’ nerve—now, he and Kim together are making me foam at the mouth with “yuckkiness”. At this point, I care not what happens with… Read more »

Shiloh death was a big BLAAH! It was minor league stuff.. Sam killing him, ehh nothing there either. It was an empty death scene/ending. Carly in labor- I could care less. that story (with or without the baby’s death) has been a total sleeper. Nina and Valentin will not got married, it’s a given. No excitement there. What in hades has happened to GH, it has sipped into a void of nothingness. What a shame for a great soap to fall so low. and- why on earth has the writers and producer been allowed to let the falling happen, that’s… Read more »

Here’s a thought. If you’re going to extend a soaps contract do one thing right for a change. Not a contest but a blog or post where viewers can suggest honestly how to fix things. Let viewers post storylines they want to see and how they’d work. Then have a team of people plus the EP and head writers take a serious look and draw from what’s posted. Viewers aren’t thick headed, and are extremely passionate about their daytime dramas. I can guarantee you’d glean about 2-3 years of continued afternoon love and action packed drama after it’s all said… Read more »

This is high drama? Please. This is boring and lackluster. Laura Wright being Wes’ beard has gotten old. Parking Lot Peter has got to go! He’s involved in nearly every storyline, and is a horrible actor.

Well I’m glad Shilo finally dead. It’s been dragging on way too long. I am all for anything Cassadine so I hope this next phase brings lots of them back it’s the best time ever and the Cassadines are fighting. I just wish Luke was here. Can’t wait for the rightful heir and his son to come back. Get the drift

I am just glad that the whole “Dawn of Day” story is over or is it thanks to that snoopy nurse. Coby; ex-Shiloh is dead. You have to give Coby a lot of credit for his creepy portrayal of Shiloh. Had he not made that very short stint on Y&R, I’m not sure that GH would’ve discovered him. Yeah, the wedding of Valentin and Nina won’t happen, thanks to Sasha unburdening herself, Cassandra Pierce, Leisel and the codicil coming to light that will bring Valentin down. Nikolas will be back (remember that psychic telling Laura that her son was in… Read more »

I wonder if GH will ever return to the show I once knew and loved? Here are some issues with Thursday [9-26] and Friday [9-27-] shows. Why is it that Wylie has been kidnapped by Shiloh and Lucas stays at the hospital to tend to his patients? Why in the hell wouldnt Jason check to see if Shiloh was dead when he shot him? Why was Jordan questioning Sam and Jason like they just killed Edward or Lila? DUMB! Why did Willow have to confirm Shiloh’s body? Didnt Chase know who he was? And finally, why is it that Epiphany… Read more »

Oh dont prolong the juicy. Glad Shiloh is history and keep it that way… not a fan. Let Carly find her midding heart and let baby be strong and vibrant Sam should be found a hero as the nurse is arrested, who causes an uproar and shot by the PCPD.
OH Shash must reveal her secret at the nuptials and a new story line begin … Spencer the cad time to rane and those that threw him to the wolves find many days behind bars.

Cannot stand Shiloh Soooooo glad he died!!! YAY!
Cannot believe producers are actually having Sonny have another child!!! Ridiculous!!!! Stupid storyline of Sonny and Carly redoing vows! Mike marrying Yvonne was dumb too! Thank goodness for fast-forward for those days!!
Pretty much agree with ALL that was posted above!! Olivia yells too much! She better not take Roco away from LuLu! Bring Franco back! Where’s Griffin? Where’s Nicholas? Make Ava happy and bring him back and let those two get together!!!
Make this show more exciting to watch before it gets taken off the air! I’ve been watching it from day 1!!!!!
Please!

Re: Valentin’s bachelor party. That karaoke song he did just about put me into hysterics. I know the man can sing, as I’ve heard him at the Nurse’s Ball, but today he sounded like his underwear was pulled up to his neck! I’m sure it was probably him, but the lip syncing just didn’t go with the music. Somehow made him appear ridiculous.

Celia

Valentin is an irritant, Miss Vi—-a Quasimoto facsimile.
He can sing, but I agree, that was dumb—-yuck!!
Not only that, but he butchers the French language—he keeps calling Charlotte “petit”… she’s a girl—-should be “petite”, where the last “t” is stressed.
I am done with him and fakeNina. Such a change in personality—-such forced acting on her part.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Can’t really tell if Michael is a Dr. Frankenstein yet……I could never picture him as a baddie…..but, associating with unsavory Nelle, does give me pause.
Oh, by the by….(aside)–I knew, even before she left, that Hayden had not lost Finn’s baby—-I mentioned that fact a few times—And, many of us expected her return.
What are the chances Finn and Hayden will get back together? What about Nikolas and Ava?

Oh my, they are catching on to Peter. Maybe he’ll be gunned down in the hotel parking lot. So many viewers disliked him, so I thought he might turn out a good guy.Poor Anna and Maxie.

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 (the late 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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
