GENERAL HOSPITAL: Twins Go Blind: Jason And Drew In Peril As Jordan Is Hit By Car And Shiloh Figures His Next Move

Courtesy/ABC

In a major cliffhanger on Friday’s General Hospital, twins take front and center stage.  And on the ABC daytime drama series that means we have: Anna and Alex Devane (Finola Hughes), Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom), and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and Drew Cain (Billy Miller).

Finally, we get to the crux of just what former DVX doc, Dr. Cabot was up to with his experimentation with twins, the virus that is striking and causing sudden blindness, and how Andre Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) was involved.

At GH and in Cabot’s hospital room, he explains to Anna that the reason she doesn’t remember participating in his study was because she wasn’t supposed to. A livid Anna is calmed down by Finn (Michael Easton), but ponders how Kevin figured into this seeing his twin has been “dead’ for 25 years.   When Robert (Tristan Rogers) joins Finn and Anna to question Cabot further he reveals the true objective of his study …  it was to transfer memories from one person to another. He goes on to say that Anna and Alex were in the first trial, and that Anna was given Alex’s memories.  But was she?  Did it work?

Elsewhere, at the docks Sam (Kelly Monaco) tells Jason that she is going with Shiloh tonight to try to figure out once and for all what he wants and is up to.  Jason downloads a tracking app on her phone. When Shiloh meets up with Sam. he tells her he is taking her somewhere and it’s a surprise, but it will relieve her tension about “Dawn of Day”.

Eventually, Shiloh brings Sam to a dark lighthouse called, “The Tower.”   In his story, Shiloh says after he left the war in Afghanistan he was homeless and took shelter there. Once at the top of the stairs of the Tower, he continues to explain how he slept there one night and woke up to a beautiful light, the dawn of day and in the moment knew his calling,  Sam has her phone on speaker so Jason can hear what is going on and track her as well.  He has made on the stairwell going up to the tower.  Shiloh then makes a move on Sam asking her to spend the night with him and see the light for herself.  Jason is seen continuing up the steps with a gun drawn.

Now, back at GH, Anna defiantly believes Cabot’s experiment did worked on her, but comes to the sudden realization that Andre used Cabot’s research and then perfected it on Jason and Drew. A worried Anna knows the men could be serious trouble!   In addition throughout the episode unknowingly to anyone, the real Kevin Collins, another twin, is blind stuck at the basement of Ferncliff with Laura (Genie Francis), thanks to his serial killer twin brother.

We next see Drew in the GH garage getting into his car.  As he’s driving, he’s hit with a blinding and terrible headache.  He passes out at the wheel and runs right into Jordan!  Meanwhile, at the tower Jason is stopped dead in his tracks and is stuck with a major headache and takes a terrible tumble down the stairs.  Sam and Shiloh hear a noise and run out to see what happened.   Sam is shocked to look at unconscious Jason as Shiloh looks on.

So, what will happen next? Will Shiloh help Sam and do the right thing? Will Shiloh kidnap Sam and leave Jason to die? What will be the fate of Jordan? Will Drew be able to regain his sight and what does this mean for his relationship with Curtis? And what about Anna, could this change the back-story of who is the birth mother to Peter August (Wes Ramsey), or is this just a red herring?  Share your theories on the latest developments on GH via the comment section below.

Funny that in an episode in which key scenes take place in a parking lot, they hopefully use this opportunity to correct the Peter situation.

Does this make Anna and Alex patients 3 and 4 — with only partial memory transfer? Drew is obviously patient 5. Kevin and Ryan would be 1 and 2, since no mention of memory transfer has been implied.

Maybe crazy Cabot can extract the memories from Anna, then only Jason’s memories from Drew.

Jordan’s face as she was struck was amazing. BNH has settled nicely into the role. If she’s in a long coma, Franco is in deeper trouble, although he may eventually rescue Kevin and Laura.

So, the mayor will be missing and the police commissioner in a likely coma. Who’s running the town? Never mind, Sonny will think he’s in charge as always.

Excellent post. I like the direction that the story is taking. Filling in the backstory is a good thing. And a double dose of Finola Hughes? Bring it on! I adore this extraordinarily talented actor.
Ditto regarding the new Jordan. This actress fits the role better than the last and I think she’s a better actress. If only she hasn’t been written so consistently dumb, albeit better of late. The writers just don’t write cops well.
Finally, thanks again to everyone at ABC for bringing Genie Francis back, front and center, where she belongs.
GH is on a roll. 🙂

I can’t follow this synopsis at all, which explains why I gave up on GH ages ago. I like my soaps to be a little more grounded in reality… a good writer can create plenty of emotional drama without resorting to face masks and “memory transfers.” But there are plenty of people who love these sci-fi like elements, so to them, I say enjoy! At least it sounds like there is payoff coming.

I agree. The problem with the writing of GH is that it’s predicated upon damage control. If they wrote good, solid, character driven story lines in the first place, they would not have to constantly back pedal their stories

Shiloh will help Ssm get Jason help, he will want to be her hero
(and no one dies from headache/blindness..

Anna and Alex is crazy stuff..
So it was Alex that went obsessed bonkers over Duke’s death, but, Alex’s memories would be blank of Duke’s love, that whole near year-long Anna crazy stuff over Duke was Alex bwaaa
how could that be Alex’s emotions, nawww.
then- How could Alex’s memories be Anna.. lol

So- due to soap, who will be the unknown twins when one goes blind or will it end as is, all accounted for.

Drew Will regain his memory and keep his present one, it is a given. That is how that will turn out, without a doubt.

And- Carly pregnant haa didn’t she have menopause yet lol
Anyways it’s gonna be Carly fighting for her life and a dead baby story, sigh

((how many unborn babies have all the soaps killed bwaaa ha! sheeshh.

I’m loving this blind twin storyline, and love how its connected the three major characters w/ twins, I sure hope Peter is Alex son and not Anna, in fact Anna should discover that griffin is her real son, as for the the stories intertwined with the serial killer story and the very boring shiloh crap, I like the umbrella gloria monty style to it. I love GH so I’m a happy camper.

I think it will turn out Slex is Peters mother not Anna and I HOPE the Kevin/Ryan story will end soon. It started out good but now it is tedious

Kevin/Ryan is poorly written..no one at the mental hospital ever gave thought their patient could had been Ryan since he and Kev are identical…no one at the mental hospital looking for Laura or their missing patient…Commissioner Jordan at every crime scene instead of cops is unrealistic…no security cameras where Lulu was attack that would clearly show Ryan coming and going…no involvement with Felicia who was Ryan’s obsession…no DNA found at any crime scenes!!!!

@Shelly – AND – Chris … “get a clean slate” if you care about your craft… and that it stands to reason… that “FANS” truly do know what works

JUST 2 feats:

1. give us back, Finola Hughes ! she is not the mother of Peter August… aunt will suffice. as Alex is his mother. DONE – SIMPLE the worst being paired w/Finn. STOP

2. work… and do the job… you have so much talent on the canvas… that must surprise you, no? WHY DO YOU TWO CONTINUALLY FOCUS ON THE MOST BORING COUPLE, EVER ? Sonny and Carly have run the gamut… less is more

There will be two major outcomes from these latest story twists:

1) Whiny Heiny will be Alex’s son, NOT Anna’s. It’s still a ridiculous history revision to have Faison’s son running around, but at least it’s not messing with Anna’s history. Alex doesn’t have any real history on GH, so who cares what happened in her past?

2) Drew & Jason both having the “blind virus” will no doubt lead to a cure for Oscar’s brain cancer, since Kim was already looking into experimental treatments which use a virus to attack cancer cells. And now you have two compatible donors, Daddy & Uncle Jason. What? You really thought they were going to let a 16 year old kid die a slow painful death?

I sure hope you are right about Oscar, because I’ve read that Oscar is definitely leaving to pursue other things, and will probably die on the kid’s road trip, while driving.

Is it true…another soap site reported ABC is in early talks of reviving OLTL and ALL My Children-cant imagine why now when actors are involved in other projects…in any case i will believe it when i see it..still think its a little too late but would be great if true and brought back in some form-maybe the two combined as All My Life To Live..still wont hold my breath

I am always hopeful. As long everyone acknowledges any revival cannot be like the originals and likely will not feature many of the past characters. I strong point of view and focus is necessary with a sense of history and respect to the legacy. Many children can be SORAS’d or used to populate Pine Valley and/or Llanview. I would not run them together though. They had such different tones in their later years.

There aren’t specific talks of reviving either soap. All that was said was that there were possible talks; that’s not a definitely “early talks,” it’s an assumption that something could be discussed, but not verified.

Jimh, I’ve also read that this will be done on the OWN channel on a trial basis, to see if there will be enough interest.
I would certainly be interested if they bring back most of the former actors, but as you say, they are probably involved in other projects.

All this silly sci fi/mad scientist stuff may once have been compelling to GH audiences in a broader way. Not anymore. I tire of it and the violence that goes unpunished. I do not feel any sense of home or hearth in the show’s tone. There is little joy to temper the over-the-top shenanigans.

IF Shiloh doesn’t help Jason and kidnaps Sam, he’ll be overplaying his hand. It’s way too soon.

Jordan will be out of commission (sorry, I couldn’t resist) for a few days, sending Franco into a tail-spin. But all will be well when Jordan rebounds.

There won’t be any fallout between Curtis an Drew. It wasn’t Drew’s fault.

Most hopefully, Peter will turn out to be Alex’s son. That should satisfy all those who were so upset about Anna sleeping with Faison.

I must give credit for the twists I didn’t see coming in the Ryan murders and hope the surprises keep coming and play all the way through.

Steve Burton character is in NEED the most “make me over”. does Dr. Cabot have a twin? he was using himself on the same “potion” Drew… saying he prefers his memories of today… instead of his ??? 30 years? by all accounts a much fuller life … of course , it’d be interesting… Billy Mille’s character NEEDS to be fleshed out. I want to know just how much in love he was with Kim. he’s a doctor, I thought so, along with being a NAVY SEAL? … !!!! for the love of GOD .. @GH could certainly use him… Dr. FINN the miracle cure of all time… is so irritatingly boring. this allegiances w/ snore Sam… has got to stop.. especially the tracks being laid by Sonny and Carly to ??? lay inroads with Drew. for what ? I love that I can’t see Billy Miller’ Drew doing any thing with them… even Jason…just doesn’t follow. Drew should be thanking his lucky stars he’s not strapped with Sam. YES Kevin : Magnanimous REACH. wowzah is Jon Lindstrom the HOTTEST .. I CANT WAIT for KEVIN SCENES after all the fallout WITH Ava. as he’s so sorry apologetically EARNEST. that’s DOC. MARQUEE : READ in SOD… that the reunite WITH Laura and Kevin would be instinctive. so… I had something to look for… if it got too rated PG. wait for it since Laura had alluded to Lulu that they had yet to renew their vows and consummate AGAIN. after she got back from Paris. LOL anyway… it was well done… between Kevin and Laura.. as she’s @Ferncliff looking in the same room window she last saw… as he turned over … and she starts banging on the door.. AND Kevin KNOWS it’s her.. which was again played out when they were physically together after RYAN moved them both out of sight out of mind. I TEARED UP. as they shared passionate kisses.. I thought he was going to take her right their. go Jon ! RYAN: My Man… the dark edge any show with high caliber act , NEEDS. rico suave . to the hilt. this should end on a nigh note… with Ryan… besides just seeing Lulu ???? validated, who can’t wait for our momma smurph back in heels with drop dead lipsticks …argh! this is my problem is seeing another of Frank Valentini pets be given another act… OKAY Roger Howarth…. STAR AGAIN ho hum. truly thanking Jon Lindstrom for the ride. yet gutted for Felicia , Big Mac, even Lucy WHERE is Finola Hughes !!!! ??? stuck with Michael Easton – AND – Wes Ramsey ??? WHY !!!! she’s so unrecognizable! she’s so limber romantic passionate and all smiles .. with cooing untold. all validated by the barbs shared while Robert looks on. HOW MANY MILLION YEARS HAS FINOLA HUGHES BEEN @GH… outside of Robert AND DUKE ???? this is the best @GH can dream up ? BORING. come on , Paul had something. SPLIT THEM UP… Read more »

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
