On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, several stories are about to have a junping off point when they are revealed.

Unfortunately for fans of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers will need to wait till Monday to find out the ramifications since GH is preempted today.  In story, Dr. Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen) has come to see Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  He admits he has been following her.  After first being a little unnerved by it, Griffin asks Anna if they can meet publicly so he can tell her something.  But then he is called away to the hospital in the issue of Tracy’s (Jane Elliot) brain biopsy and condition, that he believes is not going to turn out to be Dr. Mayes (Matt Riedy) diagnosis of cancer, but something else.

Meanwhile, Anna calls Andre (Anthony Montgomery) asks him to meet with her.  She questions if he knows anything about Griffin, and why he might be following her.  Andre assures Anna to his best knowledge Griffin is a stand up guy.  Anna feels like she may have met Griffin somehow years ago, but can’t put her finger on it.

After Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) stands up to Dr. Mayes, he tells Griffin he wants him to figure out what is going on with his mother’s condition.  Griffin says he has seen something similar to this in Mexico.  Brad (Parry Shen) later happens by and tells Griffin he will help him gain access to the results of Dr. Mayes biopsy of Tracy.

Meanwhile at Wyndemere, Laura (Genie Francis) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) are preparing themselves for the reading of Helena’s will! Sam (Kelly Monaco) arrives for the reading as well, and after getting into a bitch fight with Hayden (Rebecca Budig) over her investigated the new Mrs. Cassadine’s background eventually speaks one on one to Laura.

It is in this scene that Laura apologizes to Sam for her part in covering up Jason’s (Billy Miller) identity.  After the women come to terms with that moment in time,  Sam reveals to Laura that Helena put a curse on her with her dying breath, something which Laura reveals she knows about all to well.   Laura reveals to Sam that Helena cursed her as well.   Later, when Sam meets up with Jason, and after he leaves, Sam realizes he left behind the plaque from the Quartermaine crypt with his name on it.  She touches it and Sam cuts her finger on it.  Is the Cassadine curse beginning to play out?

So, what do you think Griffin is about to tell Anna?  And while many have already read the previews that Helena leaves certain “gifts” behind for those attending her will reading, what would you have Helena leave behind for Sam, Laura, Nikolas, and others?   Share your thoughts and suggestions in the comment section below!

Griffin wants to tell Anna that he is her son, or her nephew. He is Leora’s twin, stolen at birth? Or, Alex’s child? Or Lindsey’s?
Baddie Charlotte absconded him and hid him somewhere, or gave him away.
Will David Hayward resurface? I may be way off base, but I know there is a connection between them….a familial connection. That’s why Dr. Munro is so familiar to Anna.

He could be Aiden Devane, having had facial reconstructive surgery. Yes, yes, yes…..rubbing my hands together, at the prospect/possibilities….doing a happy dance!!!!!! If some of the AMC’s beloved characters will return, whether recasts or not, would be my pleasure!

I’m really hoping griffin is related to Anna somehow Anna needs family in town.. Hope it’s not something dopey like duke incarnated or something like that, it’s not going to fly. I’m telling you griffin looks like a young Tristan Rogers. As for the other plots I hope Helena gives Liz some money for kidnapping little jake.

GH has become very transparent, and that means no suspense or mystery, just transparent..
Know what’s going to happen–
The second Anna said he looked familiar, I knew he was of Duke’s DNA..

0ooh when Tracy had her 1st sign of illness I said;
It was a parasitic brain infection, worms in the brain thing..
And, it will be, wait for it .. / too transparent..

You did, su. I remember…and so did I….as told by my husband. Malignant, benign or an infection. But, you were very sure it was an infection. You called it.
Timmm did suggest that Larry put something in Tracy’s drink….could have been some kind of fetid additive.

Hi, su, I though that today’s episode held some suspense. Don’t you agree? Obviously, Griffin in a towel, sporting a scar on his lower left part of his abdomen was done for a reason. We were meant to see that…mystery and suspense. I agree it is not the salivating suspense some of us expect, but I got to see Griffin’s exposed bod, again. Maybe next time he’ll be wearing just a loin cloth. ….KIDDING!! Also, the name Griffin Fitzgerald Munro really seemed to have jarred Anna, albeit she made an Herculean effort to be impassive. That added a little suspense… Read more »

Some reports are that he is Duke’s son, from another mother. If true, that’ll hurt!!!

Very interesting, Tristan….so many possibilities.

You called it, Tristan. You are right.
I must say, though, Anna seems to welcome these news, in a bittersweet way. I guess it hurts in a different way. She regrets neither father or son ever met. Sad.

Like i said under a different posting…he is her son or her sister’s son…

So did I, Jimmy. But, which sister? Anna had/has two. Alex and Lindsey, if I am not mistaken.

They cannot mention Anna’s family from AMC, because of the Prospect Park lawsuit.

ahhhh Anna has sisters.. I did not that..
hmmm then he may not be of Duke DNA ..
but geez how far back are they digging to grab a sister?
The doc. is about 30? so going back 30 years?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Didnt know there was two…thats interesting to know.

@jimh.
Hey, Jimmy.
I double checked with my Gran and she said that Anna had two half sisters; Alex and Lindsey (Aidan Devane Turner’s) mother. The sisters were borne of three different mothers but had the same father.
Charlotte Devane was Alex’s mother, and she was a witch, according to my grandmother. LOL.
Charlotte did so many despicable things; my Gran speculates that Charlotte could have kidnapped Griffin as a baby. So, he could be offspring to one/any of the sisters.

Thank you and your gran for that info about Anna’s sisters…i didnt watch much of AMC when Anna was there and barely remember much of her storyline-so unlike me…but yet i can remember stuff from the 60s and 70s when i was soooooooo young…lol

@Tristan.
Hey, Tristan,
Of course you are right….I forgot all about that, Tristan. It would have been an ok premise, though, no. ……and I would have absorbed every gripping moment if Lindsey were not dead after all.
This PROSPECT PARK thing will forever be looming over the soap to the end. Enervating!!Too bad TPTB cannot hand pick a few characters from Anna’s past on AMC.

CeeCee

@Tristan.
Again, Tristan, I must say how correct you were. I was way off base thinking it had to do with AMC.
I cannot remember who linked Griffin to Duke on these boards, but that person was on right on target. Fitzgerald is an Irish name…..was Duke Irish or Scottish?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Is Helene even dead…she could leave Laura her wardrobe, Sam her brain, Alexis a bra and Nik learns he is bankrupt and has to move in a trailer park with Hayden/Rachel?whoever-whatever she is, Liz learns Jake is a clone and Jason learns he isnt Jason….lol

Patrick

LOL

especially the trailor Park Nicholas… this will really test the allegiance of Hayden, now wouldn’t it

it seems the griffin munro mystery has taken hold and eclipsed… every one else… that being Jason; Hayden/Rachel; and ???

I must say… i’m intrigued to know… who Claudette is… ??? I think it’s Kiki real name ??? finally… “they are” ? getting to the mystery of Nina possibly being Kiki long lost child?

Hi, Patrick. At the risk of patting my own back, lol…..as soon as a fuss was made by bringing focus to that glove in Nathan’s tux-side-pocket, I posted the fact that there was a mystery woman behind that glove. Someone else, I think Rose, responded by saying that whoever it was, still held meaning to him for having had it and by putting it back in his pocket without disposing of it. Good call, Rose…it does have meaning for Nathan, which will open a nasty, smelly can of worms. I took a wild guess and I was right. Yeayyy!! LOL.… Read more »

You’re welcome, Jimmy. My grandmother is 75, with a sharp wit and memory….sometimes better than mine. I loved AMC, but I can’t remember details as well as she. I was young and carefree, Lol…..I had never heard of Charlotte or Lindsey until Gran mentioned them.
I thought that the only link GH and AMC had was Anna, Alex, and Aidan. Was Aidan ever on GH? To be honest, I thought he was Alex’s son not Lindsey’s.

I TRULY – want – some thing… any-thing… to MOVE Laura !!!! why shouldn’t Helena… in all her magnanimous fortitude… salute Laura… and bequeath Laura with POWER !!!! Genie Francis NEEDS to focus on herself!!! which is simply put : GH !!!! forever and day.. give Laura a storyline… besides being the queen of virtue and if she eats one more candy bar…. I’ll shuck GH again I want that Helena has stipulated.. that Nicholas and Laura WORK together… and reign as mother and son… and fight for ELQ and fortress WindeMear… and catapult the Cassadine Dynasty I’m already so… Read more »

hey Patrick..

The Cassadine Dynasty is a true sop power family and the Casidiones were/are the spark that started all the big fires, some a 5 alarm..

GH needs the Cassadines back, like yesterday..
I was more than disappointed when reading Easton will once again be a doctor when he would/could be an awesome Cassidine!

No, no, no monsieur Patrick! ELQ needs to get back to its rightful owners, the Q’s! That is THEIR company, it has always bern a part if their story and I wouldn’t want to see Laura pulled in yet again to anothet of Nic’s

Patrick
Guest

i’m just impatiently waiting out… story time… for Genie Francis what’s it going to be ????? fans were clamoring for her return… and SHE IS GOLD ! that being said… I don’t want her to be just the token voice of reason… and a dutiful grandmother was hoping Helena would bequeath …and stipulate that perhaps .. the Cassadine fortune is not as ailing as Nicholas stated… and that this gives Nicholas more power and reign at his disposal… I certainly don’t think Laura would be globetrotting wonder woman espionage.. as long as it’s to Amsterdam to tell AG to forget… Read more »

The last thing I want GH to do with Laura, after promising that Genie is going to have a big storyline, is to have Helena’s bequest to Laura to send her off on some “adventure” – meaning we don’t see her onscreen for 3 months. This woman is soap royalty and has been ignored and maligned enough by TPTB and, in my opinion, certain actors who would throw her under the bus rather than allow her to remind them of the glory of LnL. Give Genie her due and do right by her finally.

Yes, “do right” by Genie!

I think you may be right about this ‘adventure’ of Laura’s ….or a wild goose chase, Nancy.
I surely hope this ‘key’ will not take her search of ‘whatever’ too far. Maybe keep her within the confines/perimeters of PC.
But, as I understand it, Laura is no shrinking violet….would she embark for parts unknown in search of that which the key will unlock? Pandora’s box, mayhap?

When I first saw Griffin in scenes with Anna I thought he could be a younger brother. I do not know off all Anna’s family connections. I know FH appeared on All My Children as Anna’s twin Alex. Thus a nephew may not be far off.

Today GH was perfectly decent today! Save for fast forwarding through the Sonny scenes, I actually found myself watching every scene with interest. My favorite? Why that would be Laura educating Hayden on the dynamics of the Gatsby and Daisy romance. Thank you, Laura. Because yesterday it was driving me crazy (and well all know that is a short drive for me) when Lizzy and others read Hayden’s inscription on the first edition of The Great Gatsby. Really, what kind of idiot would defile a first edition of an enduring classic such as The Great Gatsby with such a stupid… Read more »

The only thing that bothered me about Laura’s description of Daisy’s as being a “weed” is that daisies were always Laura’s favorite flower. There was talk in the 80s and 90s stating that. Fine analogy for Hayden, but Laura wouldn’t equate daisies to that. Oh well, another insignificant detail of rewrites that bothers me.

nancy dillingham

Harry 1, I, too, loved it that Laura put Hayden’s in her place. Wish she had gone on to quote the line from The Great Gatsby about “careless” people leaving their messes for other people to clean up.”

That line would have been perfect, Nancy. Maybe it’s coming?
I had forgotten that the daisy was Laura’s favorite flower. I never cared for daisies myself.

Continued…another of Nic’s wrongdoings. What I WOULD like to see is Jason aligning himself with the Quartermaine’s his real family…and help them to take back what was stolen.

I too want a great story for Laura, nut not at the expense of losing the woman she’s always been…loving, supportive, wise…at the same time action oriented when need be. They can make her dynamic withouy corrupting her.

As for the Cassadines, they alwayd been the evil yet mesmerizing clan. Unfortunately the writers killed them off. Hopefully some old and new sill start spfinging up to up the edge again.

hi rebecca1

Jason and Dillan will work together to get ELQ back..
It is inevitable that ELQ will be returned to the Q’s..

The cassidine are Aliens or something, they can not die they are immortal. lol
A Cassidine is never dead, as in dead … lol
I really would love a Cassadine invasion !

Patrick
Guest

I totally agree… that ELQ will be back in it’s rightful place… at the “Q” I just find it too .. ho hum… at every thing Jason does… spins or weaves in to gold… and he is merely toying with Nicholas… which bugs me which simply put… all the story for Nicholas… will go by the wayside… as it has been who doesn’t want good story for; Nicholas and mom Laura… I like the angst Hayden brings… it just smarts that Liz is asking Sam to NOT stop her investigation in to Rachel… which is interesting to a point… OK…… Read more »

Yes, Nicky. Anna has a twin, Alex and another sister, Lindsey, who has died. Aidan Devane is Lindsey’s son.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

Courtesy/ABC

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
