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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read 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,… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
