GENERAL HOSPITAL: Trading Places With Kevin and Ryan; Oscar Has a Seizure

Photo: GHTwitter

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers learned the identity of which twin was in a straight-jacket at Ferncliff, and which was out and about in Port Charles,  But is there yet a twist on a twist on this coming?

Through flashbacks from Felicia (Kristina Wagner) recounting how she was terrorized by Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) years ago, and then the showdown scene between Ryan and Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), which led to Ryan’s “demise”, the stage was set to move this present day storyline of the twin brothers along.

We cut to everyone’s worse nightmare mental health facility, Ferncliff, where the patient in the straight-jacket claims to nice-guy orderly, Gordon, that he is the real Kevin Collins and his brother Ryan switched places with him, which is what most viewers who have been watching the story unfold would tend to believe has happened.  He wants Gordon to help him by loosening his straight-jacket. Gordon says he will alert those in charge and exits.

Later, the psychiatrist twin arrives and has some choice words for his brother for stirring things up.  The patient spouts: “Nice to see you too, Kevin.”  Kevin says he knows Ryan has been claiming to be him … yet again!  Kevin reminds Ryan that when he found out he was alive he brought him to Ferncliff to treat him and rehabilitate him, rather than turn him over to the police for a lifetime jail sentence.  Ryan, who has major homicidal tendencies tells his brother he can’t be cured and rather likes who he is.  Kevin won’t give up and wants to help him.  Ryan mentions Felicia.  Next thing you know, Kevin’s cell phone rings and he turns his back for a second, and Ryan is able to get out of the straight jacket and attacks his brother.

Elsewhere, Jason (Steve Burton) is getting ready to take Oscar (Garren Stitt) on his motrocycle to meet up with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) after their talk about the teen’s relationship with Carly’s (Laura Wright) daughter.  When Jason tells Oscar let’s get a move on, Oscar suddenly goes into an all-out seizure!

GH will be airing a series of encore episodes for the next several days with the pick-up  of new episodes after Labor Day.

So, what do you think is going on between Ryan and Kevin?  What will be the next twist in the storyline?   And … what is happening to Oscar? Share your theories via the comment section below.

Kim adopted Oscar…he is really Margauex’s son with Drew…Elizabeth Hendrickson resembles a young Denise Alexander in some scenes, especially in the eyes-imho!!!…i believe the original double story was on Edge Of Night in the early 60s…Phil Capice was replaced by a double who wouldnt sleep with Phil’s wife Louise…The double’s face may look exactly like Phil but from the neck down is a different story…some crooks had the double(forget the reason) to pose as Phil,,,but this double story was more clever then todays versions…those crooks had the double in an accident to keep Louise from noticing the difference!!!…why is GH repeats when other soaps are not-stupid!!!

I think Elizabeth Hendrikson resembles Finola Hughes. A bit of a younger version but to me the resemblance is pretty strong. What say you?

Jimh

She does in some scenes too…the eyes remind me of Denise,,,and she does have some resemblance to Finola as well!!!

I can’t believe Ryan escaped Hell! After I let his mother go up and greet him at the funhouse and everything. I really need to get better security down here…..

Ha ha!!! Satan, I always figured you’d be a real knee slapper.

I am delighted that Ryan is back! Ryan is one of the classic villains–he’s up there with Billy Clyde Tuggell. Ryan and Kevin are intelligently realized characters and both are brilliantly played by Jon Lindstrom.
Kevin may be an insane serial killer, but he’s a brilliant one. I appreciated that he pretended to the orderly in the asylum that he was really Kevin and Ryan was out in the real world impersonating him. That way when he did make the switch, the orderly would not believe Kevin.

Shay

All you said, Harry, although aren’t you at least a bit disappointed and/or disturbed that wasn’t actually Ryan who was so clearly fascinated with what was purportedly Faison’s “brain in a jar?” That moment when the doc was clutching his prized specimen was deeply creepy….makes one wonder if his twin is not the only one still in need of psychiatric help!

Timmm

Tuesdays “Friday” say was great! Jon Lindstrom is FINALLY being used! They are including Kristina Wagner! And Laura will be sleeping with Ryan soon!

I thought for sure Jason and Oscar would wreck on his motorcycle and Drew would have a fit!

PS: If Mike had a daughter Sonny didnt know about, could Mike have another son?

Shay
Shay

Well, if Mike‘s propensity for spreading his seed matches Sonny’s, previously prodigious efforts, then anything is possible, Timmmbo! Maybe the apple didn’t fall far from the tree!!! Lol… As for Ryan and his great escape? How wonderful would it be if he went on a vast killing spree and cleared the GH canvas of its extraneous cast members??? I’d begin with all the annoying femmes currently cluttering Port Charles: Alexis, Nina, Lucy, Kristina, Margaux, Nurse Amy and yes, Aunt Stella! I suppose it would be asking too much to see Carly get the old heave-ho, too…but I could go for that, as well!!! Also, I would have added Jordan to that list, but I’ll give the recast a chance to prove herself as a worthy addition to the show before making such a call!

What if Laura has a late life pregnancy and Ryan is the father????

hey Jim..
A pregnant grandma,, well, it could be interesting haa!

Ada back on AW in the 70s was a pregnant granny…

Shay

If she did, that would have to rank right up there on the GH incredulity scale with Alexis and her contention she could have been pregnant by Julian many years after her big, bad menopause storyline!

su000

Perhaps Ryan will kill Laura!
Whatever, I can see this story playing out for near 2 months..
I’m liking this guy Ryan and I hope he is crazy creepy, a real deal madman of terror!
GH needs a good shot of mayhem that will hopefully keep us on the edge of our seats ..

Shay
Shay

Or perhaps Laura will kill Ryan! She has past experience in such righteous paybacks to those who have harmed her! Ryan may just reawaken that dorment fury!

su000
su000

hi Shay ..
Well, someone is going to kill someone. lol

ahh ha I hope Laura and Ryan have sex, that would be a hoot.

Looking forward to a story that will be dark and creepy!
And!! a Cassidine in play, that’s a long awaited for, a diabolical Cassidine.

Shay
Shay

Well, we can certainly hope so, su! Parting with characters who have long outlived their usefulness—-if they had any in the first place!—-is not GH’s strong suit! As for Laura and Ryan meeting up in the boudoir, yes, I should expect that would be an eye-opening experience for her…me thinks Ryan would be quite the “wild man!” Hah! And yes to a Cassadine in the mix! Anywhere, anytime…can never get enough them, as along as they are full-strength, old-school types and not some modern, diluted version like the very disappointing Valentin…still holding out hope that Cassandra is one of them…at least she has potential!

How in the blue hell did “Aunt Stella” win a freakin Emmy?

Timmm, by sheer obnoxiousness. I remember a nasty critic’s quote of years ago that could easily apply to her: “If she were to collide with a Mack truck, it’s the truck I’d feel sorry for.”

The Guest Performer category typically doesn’t have much competition. Whether one likes Stella, or not, Vernee Watson puts it all into her character. The past Monday’s group therapy was a prime example.

I never thought Ryan was the one walking about Port Charles. To me he was Kevin; the only thing out of character was him leaving to visit Laura without telling Carly he was leaving. So, I wasn’t surprised that Ryan was the one locked up, trying to convince the guard that he was really Kevin. (would be funny though if their memories were swapped and they really are the other but think they’re not.)

As for Oscar, my how that boy has grown! He was a lil whipper snapper when we first met him and now he’s taller than his mom! He’s adorable.

What I find really frustrating is that neither him nor Jason pointed out that they’re uncle/nephew. They were cordial but there was no acknowledgment of their connection.

Oscar’s seizure could be something related to his frostbite near death experience from the freezer???

su000

rebecca !
I believe that Jason is Oscar’s daddy..
Their is still something unsettled with Drew, Jason and at one time they were identical twins, anyways something isn’t right to my satisfaction.. more to come.

As for Laura, I am not thrilled, nope ..
The mystery Cassidine (ring man) hopefully is Nikolas..And, they/he want Laura taken out .

But then again, I rarely get my wishes so no need to get grindy about Laura she will be just fine LOL 🙂

rebecca1

I thought of that , su0000, but I hope not. Drew has had too much taken away from him already. His “identity”, lil Jake and Danny who he thought were his sons. That would be horrible if they took Oscar away from him, too. And, I love the relationship between them. It was such a great landing place for Drew; in a time when sons he loved turned out not to be his he found Oscar.

If you’ve read my comment you know I didn’t miss Laura and I like Kevin so much better without her. But, she IS a GH vet, a much loved one and there was a time I, too, looked forward to her return. The last few times she’s been on the character has been incredibly dull, boring, matronly. I am rooting for Genie and hope THIS time “Laura” has a more exciting story. We shall see.

If the “ringed” man is Nicolas it won’t be Tyler Christopher. He’s over at Days. However, I loved his uncle (Alexis’s half brother) Stefan who supposedly is dead, too. He was played by Stephen Nichols who has been at Days for years and years, but was just let go. Wondering if by any chance they’re bringing him back. Probably not. We’ll find out soon enough.

LOL. Who gets their wishes? But, we keep on wishing…. 😉

I hope so too, rebecca1. I’m so tired of Jason being savior man. Now innocent Oscar seems enchanted by him! Can’t we give Drew a break? Such a better, more affectionate dad than Jason. Here’s to an exciting Laura tale also!

Kat lee

So Drew lost everything and Jason is the “Savior man”. Seems to me that Drew has gained a family, living in the Q’s mansion. With Jason’s family. Jason’s sons still see him as a “father figure” and he gained Oscar. He has a business that he bought with Jason’s money and a daughter he bore with Jason’s wife. Jason came home (how dare he). His marriage is gone, his children were
And are being raised by a man pretending to be him and a man who tortured him and his wife (including rape, even if it was just mental) and created so much havoc in their lives that he missed seeing his son born and both lost the first year of Danny’s life. Then he is captured and held for five years(none of which he can get back) when he gets home he is rejected and ignored and divorces by who he considers the “ love of his life” and Jake rejects him. He doesn’t even have his own home. Drew has been living a life, perhaps not his own, but he has certainly benefitted from it. Family, money and he could get his memories back, he just chooses not to. Jason is not physically raiseing his own children, he is still alone, so far Drew has been giving several opportunities for a romantic life. They just stick Jason in wherever they need filler, he has gotten Nothing back that he lost, except for Sonny, Carly and Danny and has no storyline to call his own. So PLEASE for the love of whatever deity you worship stop playing the “poor Drew” card.

Kat lee.

First, Drew DID lose everything. And, you seem to be blaming the character as if it was his fault, like he deliberately came to Port Charles and took over Jason’s life. He’s a VICTIM. Can you even imagine what it must be like to be kidnapped, strapped to a table, some lunatics going into your brain, extracting your memories, implanting someone else’s, getting hit by a car, having what amounts to is a face transplant, not knowing who you are, becoming Jake Doe, falling in love with Elizabeth, being told you’re Jason, your “new” memories making YOU think you’re Jason, finally finding happiness, peace and love to find out, “oops!” Fake out! You’re not you!” Then, to find out the sons you love aren’t yours and the wife you love still loves the man you thought you were (even if she still loves you, too.) So, yeah, I’d say he had a lot taken away from him. Like, his entire identity, past, the sons he thought were his.

As for living at the Qs? That’s not a gift. He IS a Q! Just like Jason, just like AJ. The fact that no one knew he existed makes no difference; the Qs aren’t just “Jason’s family”, whom he rejected anyway, but Drew’s as well!)

His business from Jason’s money? Again, you act like he took it. He WAS Jason; or so he and everyone thought. So whatever he built he built with honesty. And, since we’re talking about “make believe” we can only assume what we don’t see on camera happened and that he either already paid Jason back or is currently paying Jason back. He is entitled to his share of the Quartermaine fortune and he’s been working his ass off at the magazine.

As for Jason? Drew or no Drew, Jason was gone for five years! What has he done since he’s been back. Hover over Carly and Sonny. Drew nor Sam has being keeping Jason from his sons, nor has Elizabeth. He CHOOSES to STILL live as Sonny and Carly’s lapdog; he wouldn’t have a purpose if they ceased to exist. One would think that with his life being threatened for years, his five-year captivity, he would rethink his life, would attempt to get more time with his children. What’d he do instead? Plan to leave the country with Carly if need be.

Drew is not to blame for Jason’s ridiculous life. Jason, as you know, makes his own decisions. And he is now, as he has done in the past, put everything aside to help Sonny and Carly. Nothing to do with Drew.

The Kevin/Ryan storyline will probably run through the fall. It might only be featured 2 days a week (expensive vets) but hopefully they’ll be powerhouse days. Are these two brothers patients 1 and 2 with the Devane sisters being 3 and 4?

Before the seizure, I thought Oscar was going to say “thanks Uncle Jason”. Also, if Felix was in the house wouldn’t Stone Cold yell for him?

He hasn’t murdered anyone yet, which is a requirement for brain tumor on this show.

Seriously, didn’t we have enough of the twins trading places years ago? Boring. Please writers try and come up with something other than a rehash of an old story line.
