GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Courtesy/ABC

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.

It’s clear she wants a second chance at being Peter’s mother and can’t see past that. With that, the duo is at a crossroads. Finn goes to get his daughter, Violet and packs a bag and moves of their place and heads to the Metro Court for the night.  He tells Anna he has to protect his daughter.  Of course, when they get to the Metro Court, they run into Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Finn is not happy.   Will Anna and Finn reconcile? Will Peter finally, finally get his comeuppance?

Finola Hughes has been master class in this story despite the material. Making Anna look this bad so that SilasMcFinn can be the superior one for the last two years is really starting to grate. This couple needs to be dismantled permanently. Give Anna a guy where she is a least his equal, Im tired of seeing her groveling to this guy and being incompetent.

Peter needs to go or be completely de-Devaned.

You know, DMRR, everyone spends so much time strolling around those creepy docks, it’d be a shame if Peter Puke-o got ‘accidentally’ dunked….permanently! All that dirty water might straighten out that Brillo hair.

Agree with your comments. Enough with this forced agenda driven pairing. Love the actors just not paired. They are at completely different points in their lives. Anna and Robert need to be rebuilt as an anchor couple. Finn needs someone new and fiery. I don’t see Rebecca Budig coming back permanently. Please, no more Peetuh!

Carlee, I know it could never work long term, but what about Anna & Julian? They don’t give him much to do except torment Brad. And Julexis seems a distant memory. What do you think?

Don’t worry… Helena Cassadine is still in Hell, where she belongs. So is Val the Bastard’s father. Do I even have to say who it is? Seriously, you all know the answer.

At least he’s slightly more credible in that sense than Whiny Heiny ever was…. but I have a feeling that reject will by MY problem soon enough. Oh well… Cerberus was getting tired of using Shiloh as a chew toy anyway. Send him down!

Saten,
Hi there. I ‘ve been racking my brain trying to figure out who Valentin’s father could be. I was thinking Luke Spencer, making him Lulu’s brother, etc, etc. Please explain your comment a little more, when you say “Val, the bastard’s father”

Satan
Guest

Helena had a bizzare fascination with Luke, but I’m sure she would draw the line at making a “test tube baby” from Val & Lulu if Luke were Val’s daddy. And as far as I know, Luke & Helena never actually did the deed, just flirted a lot. There’s only one man that Helena had a known history with, at least in criminal collaboration, and that would be Cesar Faison. He seems the most likely suspect, in my most unholy opinion. Though he and Helena are both down here in Hell now, and neither one is talking. I suppose they… Read more »

I have never understood the Anna and Finn pairing. It came out of nowhere. I love Michael Easton and am glad he’s on the canvas. There are so many options for him with his daughter now as far as storylines. Love this showcasing of his fatherhood. Please no more Finn and Anna. We’ve endured enough.

Steve

When Easton first came on the show as John McBain, there was a good friendship vibe with Anna. Three characters later, the writers tried the romance route.

From their “Port Charles” days, Easton and Monaco have a history. The glow between them earlier this week was more enjoyable to watch than any of Sam’s scenes with Jason over the past 2 years.

Make Anna and Julian a couple and call them JuliAnna-lol….Nell story needs to wrap up soon and so does Dev(the kid with Sonny) or whatever he is called is an absolute bore like Peter the snore…why is Ava and Nina so chummy when Ava had an affair with Nina’s ex Finn and then Nina tried to steal Ava’s baby…if bad blood history was never between them it would be ok…If keeping ME lets bring back moody John McBain…Mark lawson should had been a Drew recast and could had still been involved with Lulu who needs to be more kick butt… Read more »

Anna and Julian had a few dates around 1990 when Duke died the first time. That ended once it became apparent Julian was responsible for Duke’s “death”.

So true, DMRR. If they took away his curling iron, he’d break down in tears! In the past year, he’s either eliminated or wants to eliminate Drew, Andre, Franco, the Franco/Andre assassin, Shiloh, Jason, Spinelli…. who’s next? Baby James?

I wish Putrid Petey was eliminated. He’s the absolute worst.

Are we supposed to feel sorry for Valentin? Because I don’t. The man is a sociopath and, worst of all, had no compunction about threatening Spencer, a child. Meanwhile, that little demon seed Charlotte is like a mirror image of her dad: a spoiled brat. The creepy Peter character/actor is dragging down the show AND Anna as well. Can’t wait for him to be exposed and maybe expedite the return of Drew. I love Constance Towers but Helena has been ruined for me with her sick sadism and I’d rather she never return.

nancy dillingham

NO! NEVER feel sorry for Valentin! And Helena should never return. How about a NEW story line once in a while. Or at least once in a very blue moon.

Hi again! I feel the same way about Val and his daughter. She is so much like him, even if they turn out to be unrelated. She plays the evil seed very well , the way she treated Aiden, her own cousin, or anyone else that gets in her way.

Sooo tired of Anna and her troubled past and family. Finn has his precious Violet. Please move him on and out of Anna’s mausoleum.
Tired of Anna and her pencil skirts and booties. Finn needs someone else, it’s plain as day. Anna and Robert together makes complete sense.

Violet Lemm2

Stephanie, Hi, yes you are right. Let the two old fogeys grow old together. I can see why Finn would take his little girl out of a place where the mother is protecting her killer son, that she doesn’t want to admit to.

Too bad the episode didn’t air on Friday. The headline could read: A Not So Happy Valentin’s Day in PC.

A stellar performance by JPS.

Usually not one of my favorite characters, Finn was a standout yesterday. Someone who puts their child first — attention Sam McCall, you might learn something from him. Kudos to Epiphany to not letting her and Jason off easily. That couple has lost all its luster.

As Finn and Violet were leaving the house, I kept wondering where’s Roxie?

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Well, Steve, you’re certainly right about JaSam. They look as bored as we are. And WHY does Sam continually address Jason by name multiple times in every scene when he’s the only other person the room? “Jason what do we do?”. “Jason, where are our kids? I haven’t seen them in days”. “Jason, will you leave me if I start speaking clearly and audibly?”. As for Roxie, she’s probably off-contract and holding out for more screen time. I say give her ALL of Peter’s time.

James Patrick Stuart is finally showing what a good actor he can be and finally Finn and Robert put Anna in her place though I fear Peter is not going anywhere so don’t get excited. Lol

The acting in these scenes was good but I don’t buy this big love between Anna and Finn. It is clearly a forced pairing. I recall they’ve been propped by Faison to Emma and everyone in between Port Charles. Enough. Please move Finn on!

First of all, Jason Patrick is horrible when he tries to act mad or sad. He looks like a little boy whose lunch was just stolen!

I like Finn standing up and being a man! He is only looking out for Anna. Peter is a slug! Even Robert recognizes Robin and Jason’s friendship and washes his hands of Faison’s son and Laura Wright’s boyfriend!

I am all for Jax and Nina. He is a real man!

Lucas will smarten up and Brad will get his punishment. Although, I can see Brad blackmailing Julian.

Soaphound

Thanks for saying it, Timmm, as I’ve been a little afraid to. I’ve always thought Valentin is played like a cartoon villain ala Snidely Whiplash or Yosemite Sam. It’s not BAD acting, exactly, but hardly innovative. Jax & Nina are pure gold, but I feel bad for Lucas and Brad. Even though he’s a screwup, Lucas really believed in Brad’s ability to change. By the way, if Lucas looks that sexy just coming out of a coma, I may look into it.

Violet Lemm2

Soaphound,
Right again! Lucas is a hunk and definitely wasted on the likes of Brad, yuk, yuk!

I found Valentin’s performance a bit over the top. But Helena looked great! However, the story of the Cassadine curse has long lost its “punch.” The writers need to give us some other great story lines. And, so glad that Anna is “Finnish.” She needs to have another great love story with Robert. How great it would be indeed to see the slow “rekindling” of that “fire” that was so great years ago. How sweet if they “rediscovered” each other again. They are so great together they “could finish each other’s sentences. And the ad-libbing–oh, how wondrous!

This show has stepped up its game so much. The acting has been first class!! If Stephen Nichols was to jump the sinking ship called Days of Our Lives again–I wouldn’t mind Stefan coming back to GH-perhaps he and Finola would be a great pairing.
