GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Franco Wake Up As Drew & Become The Next Victim Of Mind-Mapping?

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, picked up from the major plot twist; and unfortunately for Franco (Roger Howarth), even with the arrival of Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) to save the day; according to Dr. Cabot (Time Winters), the mind-mapping transfer could not be stopped.  And as the men were all bantering and arguing about, the download into Franco’s brain was fully completed.  Then, Cabot tells Drew that when Franco wakes up, it will be with the memories of Drew dating back to 2012.

Now the questions are, did the procedure work?  Will Franco awake from this nightmare with the history and personality of Drew, or could Dr, Cabot’s experiment be a bust on him?  Next. Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Chase (Josh Swickard) show-up.  Liz is heartsick to begin to learn what happened in the warehouse to her son, Cameron (William Lipton) and her husband.  Chase arrests Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but he also goes to GH to get medical attention for his wounds from the fight with Drew and Curtis.

Once, Franco is taken to General Hospital still unconscious, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) is on the medical case and gets him a neurological work-up.  Lucas then has to stitch up Shiloh, who continually throws jabs at the good doc about Wiley.   Then in a bit of foreshadowing, Dr. Cabot tells Drew, that he will thank him once Franco wakes up with Drew’s memories.  Does that mean that Drew could have done some horrible things in his past … or that Shiloh will leave Drew alone, because what he needs is inside Franco’s brain now? Drew hopes his memories stay buried.

In heartbreaking scenes, and in touching performances from William Lipton and Rebecca Herbst; as well as Billy Miller, Cam tells his mother about Franco’s last words to him to,  ‘Tell your mom I love her and that I’ll be back”.   Liz learns how Franco protected her son, and traded places with him. Next, Liz sits by an unconscious Franco, and in tears, thanks him for keeping Cameron safe, but laments that it would be a far less wonderful world without Franco in it, and begs him to come back to her, and what a hero he is for what he did saving her son.

In addition, Cameron gives Drew a key piece of Intel he learned during his kidnapping and while the mind-mapping procedure on Franco was taking place.  Shiloh is looking for a specific memory that would allow him to disappear, and that is why he is so determined to get inside Drew’s head from back in the day, by any means possible!  When Cameron sees Shiloh being taken away by Chase, he runs at him but is stopped by Drew. Cameron threatens a snide and laughing Shiloh that he will, “Make him pay.”  Uh-oh!  Is a murder mystery on the way, too?  Drew tries to talk down Cameron.

As the episode comes to it conclusion, Lucas informs Elizabeth that the test results show that all of the physical functions of Franco’s brain are working normally,  However, they won’t know the impact of the mind-mapping procedure until Franco wakes up.

So, what do you think Franco will wake up as Drew? The procedure will half work and he will be part Franco and part Drew? The procedure is a dud? What did you think of the performances from everyone involved in this storyline?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I think Franco will wake up with Drew’s memories but his past brain tumor will have made the memory mapping not work as expected and he’ll get flashes of his real life. At least that’s what I’m hoping. I know Becky, Roger and William Lipton will slay this and I’m so excited to see what material they get. Love #Friz and know their love will prevail. This is super couple story and I’m so glad they gave it my faves.

I think the writers on General Hospital suck why would they do that to Franco he just got married has a family that is ridiculous get new writers cause they are running down GH and I have been watching it from day one and so many things have changed and not for the bettet bring people back from the dead really it is all crazy

How about another plot twist? This flash drive turns out to not have Drew Cain’s brain on it at all, but was actually mapped from Faison’s brain in a jar.

Frodd wakes up as “Fraisodd” and takes his “son” Whiny Heiny out of town, both never to return. Win win all around.

hmmm, I dont think Peter’s real father is Faison. i love Roger and he and Becky are great together. I’ll take no matter who he plays, but after all this to get Franco and Elizabeth together, I really hope this isn’t their end.

While it took me a bit to get used to it, I love the newly improved Franco and that RH gets to put his own touches into the character. However, I am excited at the prospect of RH getting to sink his acting chops into a challenging twist with incorporating a new personality. I just love seeing Howarth act, and hope GH writers keep letting him do his thing.

The aftermath had some nicely acted, written and directed scenes. (I don’t feel the same can be said of the prior scenes at the warehouse.) I kept asking myself the same question you are asking and i think it would be more interesting if Franco wakes up with Drew’s memories, but eventually gets back his own; meaning the procedure wasn’t a total success. This way, Drew can learn more about his past, the viewers get in on it, too, and it creates more story for Liz & Franco and the rest of the ir family. They could bring Dr. Maddox… Read more »

Give Drew his answers,to his past.
Give Liz and Franco amazing story line,but let their love prevail.
Give Liz and her boys a happy reunion with Franco and his new family.And Franco needs to feel loved wanted something he was afraid of losing. Drew needs to stay and find new love and be with his family,in Port Charles.

HUH? This isn’t mind swapping. It’s mind numbing. This is ridiculousness at its height. I’ve resorted to just reading recaps as it’s just too much to subject my mind too. A story like this, A Tale of Two Minds, should not be happening on our daytime screen. We’re adults, not enthralled children waiting on the next episode of Dr.Who and the Daleks. FFS!

It’s a soap. Where people come back from the dead. Where evil people create weather machines, etc. Suspend your disbelief, otherwise there is absolutely no reason to watch soaps!

My favorite kinds of soaps–and they certainly have existed, TVJeff, though it’s been a while since I’ve run into one on my TV screen, so I can’t blame you if you haven’t seen one–are the ones that don’t make me consciously suspend my disbelief, it just happens automatically, because the storytelling is compelling, emotional, gripping, and free of gimmicks like this mind-swapping silliness. Even GH–though you’d certainly never know it now–used to be like that when it was written by the Labines in the 1990s or Douglas Marland in the late 1970s. You just tuned in, and the writing sucked… Read more »

Now see here young man. Up until the 80’s soaps were based heavily on heightened realism. Extra sauce thrown into daily dramas or into the staple bad woman/man. Even Dark Shadows wasn’t this batsh*t crazy, and it was about BATS! When Luke and Laura stormed the airwaves, and story became thin enter the weather machine and the left hand boy. Others took it up and suddenly people were possessed of the devil, being chased by dwarfs called Mr.Big, time traveling, inventing ageing serums, clones and all types of outrageous nonsense. The trend never stopped. Up to killing off characters and… Read more »

If you want to apply real world logic to such a sci-fi procedure as brain mapping, then it should work like this… Previous subjects were all identical twins. Therefore they should have brains which are physically the same. Indeed, the only thing that prevented a transfer of Drew’s memories into Jason’s brain was the previous brain injuries Jason suffered at the hands of his drunken brother AJ. Frodd & Drew are second cousins so they would probably have SOME common DNA, but obviously nothing near the full compatibility of an identical twin. So logically, it would only be possible to… Read more »

I really miss the day when soaps had family and relationship drama,,,characters stayed dead…plots more down to earth-closer to real life…yes, GH had outrageous plots back in the 80s and that was the start of soap problems but back then most soaps werent so far fetched with the scifi stuff as it is now and darkness…where killers are now the heroes ect…so much crime after crime stories…character brought back from the dead just to drive a story..no laughter like the Q family drama…no super couples to root for…no we get characters wearing masks or mind switching…Y&R has had its bad… Read more »

Jimh…I feel like you in many respects. I also miss the family and relationships as well as the humor, adventure and romance. Where it gets tricky is when the writers haven’t provided enough generations of family to carry on the family name…but then those like the original Q’s are hard to replace when they start leaving us. What I really don’t like are what I call the “ugly” stories starting for me with Fluke, then Ryan/Kevin, and now Shiloh.

Agreed. I watch GH to escape real life and be entertained. All this darkness is not entertaining…it’s down right depressing, especially when Cam was brought into it. I watched Oscar die…hated every gut wrenching second of it, but at least it was a real life issue. If they had magically cured him at the last minute I would have been disappointed because most families don’t get that miracle. Anyway, I’m rambling. I miss love in the afternoon…Sonny & Brenda adventures, Quartermaine family antics, Ned & Lois kind of love. Bring fun back into GH!

The mind-mapping is too funny! It’s spoofing the 60’s SyFy shows.. It could be something from the Outter Limits; that ridiculous plastick thing on Franco’s head cracked us up !! We laughed your azz off— True 60’s SyFy !! Anyways– Franco will be Drew that’s a good thing and about time that RH got a good script that highlights his talents.

Worse storyline from twins memory switching to DoD Shiloh becoming involved in it.. shouldn’t have switched him,better story with cult..whiley his son obsession, also boring Carly being pregnant..Sam is also boring tough girl being seduced plus putting herself in ” rape ” situations..but hating Franco still..her character is getting played out with this

I want a gradual Tri-Todd. Start slow…the current personality is status quo. Each adrenaline rush releases the kind, protective parts of Todd, Franco & Drew OR the dark & twisted Todd-Franco side with “special soldier” of Drew. Each rush creates a hybrid of the two sides til…..who do we have? A Jekyll-Hyde 2020 with a love of Country? The possibilities are endless with this actors chops!!

I am hoping Franco is Franco, but also remembers Drews past to fill in all the gaps.Drew gets to the money Shilo has hidden and does something good with it. Shilo needs to die in jail- hes so creepy! That Franco only looses all the bad memories in his life.

Hi Connie
Well you are right! Franco/Drew sure remembered Kim today, with a big romantic kiss.I don’t think he will be remembering Liz, anytime soon. I wonder if this will end the move to NYC plan? Julian, who? I can’t wait until NuDrew goes to see Shilow, but most importantly I can’t wait until he sees Jason with the face he remembers as being his.This may not be happening as we all wished it would, but it sure is going to be interesting.

Adding the Webber Baldwin family to this god awful cult story is the only thing that is saving it. Finally, there’s a reason to invest with the emotional stakes high. These actors and actresses can and will make the viewers feel what the characters feel. Franco knows forgetting his past won’t change it, but was desperate to protect Cameron at the risk of losing the life he’s worked hard to build and wanted to live. The characters affected by this happening to Franco will bring the A game. Now that Franco & Elizabeth are being used to save the pathetic… Read more »

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
