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… Read more »

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

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…..

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.

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!

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

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… Read more »

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!

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 ..

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!

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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 🙂

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… Read more »

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!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
