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?

It was a great day for GH.

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.

PETER NEEDS TO GO, NEVER TO BE HEARD FROM AGAIN. NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

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!

nancy dillingham

Yes,Anna and Robert forever. It’s so OBVIOUS!

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?

NO–no Anna and Julian! Just NO!

I just read that “Julian hits the sheets with two people”, but doesnt say who they are. I bet BrookLynn is one of them.

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!

This is GH-the writers could magically bring Helena back to life.

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
Satan

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 could always right some sort of backstory retcon where Helena might have had a fling with Edward Quartermaine. We all know Eddie got around… just ask Jimmy Lee Holt or the Wards about that. And it would explain Val’s current obsession with gaining control of ELQ. Though that would also mean he would have to know Edward was his father, and that can’t be the case, as the results of the DNA test actually shocked him.

So yeah, I’m sticking to my story. Faison is his daddy.

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.

nancy dillingham

agreed! NO MORE Finn and Anna. But, YES, to Robert and Anna–then and now, forever.

I agree as well. Robert and Anna belong together plain as day.

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 being a Spenser

Steve

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”.

Didnt know that as i didnt watch at that time

Peter is a total snore, laughable when he tries out the “tough guy” persona. He’s such a wimp!

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?

DMRR

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
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.

Stephanie

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
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
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

Jenny

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!

Sara

Agree with the forced pairing. We need a fiery redhead to join GH and rock his world. Way beyond time.

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
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!

Roberta

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.

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?
