General Hospital's Michelle Stafford Delivers Bravura Performance As Nina's Schemes Catch Up With Her!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Did fans of General Hospital just watch Michelle Stafford’s 2014 Daytime Emmy reel on today’s episode?

Now while it’s a bit premature to predict that annual race, or who might choose what scenes for contention, Stafford’s performance ran the gamut of emotions and if edited together to show the range of her acting in one episode … this could be a strong possibility!

In story, Nina Clay is turning out to be totally certifiable! After being confronted by Silas (Michael Easton) for all of her schemes and lies to break up his relationship to Sam (Kelly Monaco), she admits to them! Thank God ,Silas finally let Nina have it for her horrific deeds!

Later, as she tries to say that her caregiver Rosalie (Linda Elena Tovar)  suggested she fake paralysis to get Silas back and to hold on to her husband and more, Silas can’t listen to it her one more second.  However,  one minute Nina is shedding tears for losing her husband, and being put in a coma by her mother for 20 years, and in another,  she is screaming at her husband for how much she loathes him for having an affair with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and that she had his baby… Kiki (Kristen Alderson)!

Nina later confesses it was she that destroyed and ransacked Silas’ apartment many months ago, not Madeline (Donna Mills)!  She even gets caught about her “revenge list”, and while at times she rationalizes her actions, at other times she is so angry, other times vindictive and cruel, and yet other times plain scary, to other times showing signs of deep pain! After Silas figures out that Nina is not playing with a full deck, he suggests they go to couple’s counseling to which she looks like she is about to kill Silas for the near mention of that!

Major kudos to Michelle Stafford on this one folks!  Who else could play the roller-coaster of emotions in what is turning out to be one hell of twisted character!  

Now, let us know what did you think of Michelle’s performance on today’s GH?

she is incredible … and so in shape. tall lovely redhead woman. i wish i can stay that slim, tall long legs tone arms,her face hair just gorgeous imo,natural beauty.

Michelle Stafford rocks that role. The scene you are talking about was intense as she ran the gamut of emotions. It was an incredible scene….and as far as Rosalie goes, together they are magic. Keep going!

The scenes with Nina and Rosalie are really magic. They bring out the best in each other. Also don’t overlook the range of well played emotions Nina went through early in her return, very convincing. A very accomplished and complete actress.

It’s weird that a character so clearly wacko can still engender some sympathy. And, I like how Nina’s scenes contrasted with Madeline revealing some of her backstory so the audience could hear different sides of her history. If we’d only heard Madeline’s side, there would still be doubt because viewers would think she’s just trying to push Nina aside for the money. But, when you see Nina cracking, we know there is actual truth in Madeline’s story. The episode was so well-structured, btw them, Sabrina, Franco, Carly & Sonny. GH is on FIRE now, with so many characters adding their… Read more »

About that, Kansas. At least Nina is mentally ill, I will concede that…but, brought about by her mother.
Sonny is straight out evil. I just can’t get over how someone can plan another human being’s death as if he were making a grocery list. Seriously, who’s the sick one????!!!!!
You’re right…GH is HOT, HOT, HOT right now.

Yes, Kansas. Nina did scream out an angry and resentful admonishment to Maddie about (when a child) sending Nina upstairs to her room with the nanny while she (Maddie) drank champagne downstairs. Was Nina suggesting that Maddie went around the block a few times with a variety of men? Or was Nina suggesting that Maddie was/is a drunk?….once an alkie, always an alkie. You are so right; through her angry and desperate ranting and raving Nina is reliving, rehashing and REVEALING her childhood with a despicable mother. JMO…..No wonder she lost it then and now. So much more is left… Read more »

Michelle Stafford is a whirlwind of talent.. She can take it in every direction with perfection!! I love how her character is developing.. there are so many more changes to come, can’t wait for the end project.. She is in so much mental and heartache pain.. She is confused how to deal with a world that has passed her by for two decades.. A horrific loss.. I feel her pain and can see how she is full of revenge.. it is logical. But- she will not always be as she is now.. Love Michelle Stafford !! Love how ME/Silas woke… Read more »

You know, Mark, you’ve summed up Nina’s character accurately. MS is so good, we can’t help but be enthralled with a wackadoodle. She makes Nina real instead of cartoonish. This is how core characters are built – great acting.

I do not think you are grasping the hidden story, curacaoman. No tumor…just a lifetime of heartache. No Heather Webber either…no comparison whatsoever, sir. What you are gleaning is human emotion —full-force from a woman whose brain has been imprisoned for two decades….she needs to catch up, physically, mentally and emotionally.
As Su said….this is NOT the real Nina…get ready to be treated to a kaleidoscope of talent from none other than Michelle Stafford.

Mental illness is a real issue and unfortunately for this show they just make characters “crazy” for the sake of the plot– to do horrible things that only “crazy” or “evil” people would do. It would be a nice change of pace if this show actually did a decent story line of someone inflicted with a mental illness, suffering a breakdown– then see the real process of recovery– I can envision great scenes with this character and the character Kevin– as they journey to make this wounded broken soul whole again. But this being GH I fear what you said… Read more »

Yes, Mary SF. You make a just and significant point. Mental illness, in different degrees , is a very serious disease which affects more people than any of us realizes. To depict the disease and the disturbed person in such a way where both appear to be ridiculed and be called names is unconscionable and inhuman. You are so right. There should be a serious segment on mental illness where the ‘ill’ character is treated with kid gloves and not like a marionette in a freak show. GH puts it out there and we, the viewers, talk about it, and… Read more »

Agreed, both Michelle and Gina brought their own great spins on the character of Phyllis. Aside from Michelle, I think Gina is perfect for the role. I really like her scenes with Jack and Summer. And as for MS as Nina on GH, she’s just as amazing as she was as Phyllis on Y&R. Both these ladies deserve Emmys for their work.

I still believe Nina was never in a coma…i believe Mother Mad had Nina committed to a mental hospital…Nina was somewhat unbalance to begin with and money hungry bad Mad drugged Nina to make her seem even crazier…in the asylum Nina gave birth to Lauren ex-Kiki and gave the baby to Ava…the Nina Nathan had seen at the clinic was either a lookalike imposter or Nina’s unknown twin Tina who was jealous of her sister and helped her mother for a portion of Ninas loot…Tina was disowned for some unknown reason by her father and was sent away with Mad… Read more »

Guest

Well, Timm, I disagree about Stafford but always thought Michael Eastman was underrated as an actor. He was fabulous as the tough cop with a streak of vulnerability running through him on OLTL. But I feel sorry for Silas. All these months of watching him sniff, sob and wax poetic about the sweet, innocent Nina, his invisible friend, and he ends up with a psycho bitch on wheels. He looks rather foolish and I suppose he’s embarrassed when he thinks of how he sniffed and snorted with grief over her alleged death to Sam. He painted a picture of a… Read more »

Of course, that is your point of view, harry. Poor, poor Silas, who couldn’t keep it in his pants. How do we know that all these mental issues did not arise from all the wrongs done to Nina?…and, from her mother also, no less. I feel nothing for Silas. He may have suffered, no doubt…but he lived …he went on…while Nina lay there, dead to the world. And whose fault was that? It all goes back to Maddie. So many seem to forget that the story was Maddie trying to take Nina away from Silas for her own good. If… Read more »

Thank you, Rebecca. Yes, of course I was feeling sorry for Silas. PLus the whole Silas Nina story has really amused the heck out of me. Due to his stories of Nina, Silas created a great disparity between reality and illusion. I actually like Michael Eastman–I always have. Cee Cee, you cannot apply real psychology to this storyline. There isn’t even a drop of realism infused into Nina’s case. Don’t get me wrong–I am not complaining, but no one should watch a soap thinking there will be a little psychology 101 infused into the scenario. Real psychosis, be it bipolar… Read more »

Timm, while I agree that the reintroduction of the OLTL was not initially a success, those storylines planted the seeds for much of what is on the canvas today, which I am enjoying very much. I can’t imagine GH without at least a few of the following: Julian, Ava, Nina, Silas, Nathan, Madeline, Franco, Kiki, Lucas, Morgan, Rosalie, Jordan, etc. all of whom were either brought on or brought back as a result of the Franco, Kiki, and Silas stories. Heck, the Ava character alone has been very popular – she never would have been introduced without the Prospect Park… Read more »

I don’t think Michelle brought Michael to life where Kelly Monaco couldn’t. Obviously, the scene was high impact emotional drama that gave ME/Silas a chance to actually act.

Kudos to Silas! Finally he is showing that side of the actor that I love. His sensitivity as a human being, his fairness, his understanding and his objectivity.

He went on a barrage of a screaming binge against Nina, which I thought was unfair, but it seems to have dawned on him that she needs tenderness and help.

There was no abuse. Do you remember when Nina was talking with Franco at the hospital? I think it was Franco; might have been someone else.

I partly agree with you Kansas. But I think Mad was afraid for her unborn grandchild in the hands of an unstable Nina…so she gave kiki to Ava with the stipulation that Silas never know the child is his…which is why Ava told kiki her father was Franco. As for Nathan…Dr.O didn’t want to raise him because of who HIS father is…which we still don’t know (and she didn’t want to pass him off as Faison’s or perhaps not want him to know she’d slept with someone else at the time).

That’s not a hurt flower…that’s a twisted mind. No one, including Silas, should have to be saddled with her. She needs help. Will she get it?

Rebecca, I am not well versed in the Cassadine family history. Nonetheless, I agree with you when you say that Nathan’s father is a Cassadine….but, whomever he is, is overwhelmingly worse than Victor, according to Liesl…..which struck me as humorous that she can actually differentiate between good, bad, worse and worst. Ha Ha…..sweet irony….really spooky .
Now, my question is; who was the Cassidine patriarch? Helena’s husband? Could the man who fathered Nathan be the ‘Capo’ of the Cassadine family? Was he as diabolical and as fiendish as the rest of this unholy tribe?

Shay

This is an example where we wholeheartedly agree, rebecca1! Silas’ wife is one sick Mrs. and the sooner he washes his hands of her, the better….the man deserves to be paroled from his Nina-centric prison cell for time already served! Despite CeeCee’s well-put, passionate pleas to the contrary, there is simply no circumstance in which I will ever believe that that bad-to-the-bone broad wasn’t born that way….she was mentally-disturbed from the very beginning, no trigger required!!!! Additionally, if Madeline were such an awful maternal figure responsible for her daughter’s despicable downfall, how is it that James/Nathan grew up to be… Read more »

Ahh, Shay…why did Nathan, having been raised in the same environment as Nina, turn out mentally stable? Well, now. Nathan lacked the one thing Maddie wanted to control..MONEY…lots of it. Now, Nathan’s story is another enigma. How does the issue of Dr. O and a mysterious father who is ‘ badder ‘ than bad, turn out so angelic, both physically and spiritually? It defies logic. But, there you have it ! Maddie, most likely, did not torture or abuse Nathan. There was no need to feed him pills or inject him with whatever. (That is a form of torture) .… Read more »

Michelle did a great job yesterday! Love the look in Silas’ eyes – like, what am I dealing with here??
It’s been a great week for GH when they deal with real people and real stories. I really wish Helena Cassadine would stay dead and Jerry Jax too. Whenever the story switches to them or Robin again, I lose interest.
Looking forward to Franco’s Halloween wedding surprise too 😀

No doubt about it, Michelle is killing it. However, I hate the character so much and have no idea where they will go from here. Nina is despicable.

Does anyone know how long Michelle’s contract is? Is it possible she only signed on for a limited run and that’s how CarToony got her on the show?

CeeCee
Guest

Anything is possible SZima. I really think, though, that with the help she so desperately needs, Nina will be a completely different character. Also (I may eat my words in the long-run), I believe that the much-needed help will come from none other than Silas himself….followed closely by Franco.

(except for Heather she is the Queen of crazy and perfection.. Nina will go on her change journey,she is a chosen for the change, that is obvious, and I’m gonna love it..

I always thought she was over the top on Y&R, but that now seems restrained compared to GH. The histrionics do not make the character believable, in my opinion. I can’t get past all of the extreme acting to actually enjoy the story that is being told, and just as a counterpoint, much prefer RH’s subtle approach to his similarly troubled character.

You could not make more sense if you tried, rebecca. Everything you say is true…absolutely sacrosanct. Sam is blameless, Kiki is a victim of circumstance, and, if she is indeed Nina’s daughter, it will be devastating for her also, a double whammy! But, not so Silas. I am very adamant about that rebecca…only because we do not know how much damage, to an already bruised brain, Silas betrayal did…especially if Nina’s ‘illness’ was inherently intrinsic. Nonetheless, if we are to believe that this is a genetic phenomenon, then why do we so easily exculpate Maddie? Like mother like daughter? How… Read more »

LOL CeeCee…excellent analogy with Bertha…Rochester…Jane Eyre. I’ll take it a step further and say it could be Nina, Silas, Sam. Funny because I was just thinking as I read all the comments that they way some of us analyze these silly soaps you’d think we were in English Lit critiquing Dostoyevsky. The thing is no matter how you cut it I trust Silas. I doubt he did anything brutal to her…I don’t know why he cheated on her but perhaps he was very unhappy in his marriage…perhaps he saw a side of Nina he couldn’t deal with and succumbed to… Read more »

@rebecca. Love your second paragraph explaining Sabrina’s temporary lack of judgment to Shay. Now, why can’t the same apply to Nina?. I pretty much keep paraphrasing what you wrote, only about Nina. Her baby was ripped from her by her mother. Whether Maddie meant to hurt the baby or not is moot. The point is losing a baby, unborn or otherwise, will be a painful cross to bear for a mother forevermore. So, thank you for explaining it exactly the way I see it…..I look at Sabrina in a different light; however, I can forgive because I can understand her… Read more »

CeeCee… It could…if it were temporary insanity as one could possibly argue for Sabrina. Nina has been “acting out” for quite a while now…she tore apart Silas’ apartment, drugged him to sleep with her, tried to kill Rafe, wants to kill her mother, lied about her inability to walk, has a “hit” list…her mind is completely committed to revenge. Additionally, none of the people on her “list” actually caused her coma other than her mother. She’s been projecting the blame on to innocent people…particularly Kiki. Yes, it’s devastating to be cheated on. But it’s only a person who has lost… Read more »

Classic episode Thursday. Had to watch it a second time. The pacing, storylines, acting, dialogue, music – everything was excellent. Not a big event episode but the kind of episode where I feel like I get my money’s worth – more than any other show in recent memory. Good to see Roger back engaged with the material – his scenes with Michael were awesomely played. Fun to watch Sabrina unravel and wonder (I am spoiler-free) whether this huge about-face in character is an exit storyline or a mere turning point for her character. Great reaction by Sonny when Shawn threw… Read more »

Donna Mills is fantastic! My mother watched her on Knots Landing, she loved her back then and she loves her now. As for Nathan, well, he’s growing on me, but I’m still not a fan of Ryan Paevey in the role. As for Roger Howarth, I am so glad he’s getting decent material to work with; chill, art-therapy Franco wasn’t cutting it for me. I love RH and I think he’s finally going to start to shine in this role. RE: SpinEllie – I’m not a huge Ellie fan, I really loved Spinelli and Maxie together but not so much… Read more »

Thank you, Jimmy!!!! Kudos to you on your take of Sappy/Snippy….(Heck, I think in future I will just do a hybrid version of that moniker and call her “Snappy,” since she has been quite “snappish” as of late….LOL.) I also have long loathed this insufferable miss, but now that her felonious pharmaceutical farce is about to be revealed (we can only hope….) the notion that she is all of a sudden conflicted about her too-clever-by-half prescription switch is patently absurd. One minute the “Snapster” is staring daggers at Ava’s bulging baby bump and holding candle-lighting ceremonies to justify her bizarre… Read more »

SO looking forward to him bringing Carly & Michael to their knees with his revelations!

I see nothing different in what Sabrina did than 99% of soap characters across the soap universe that freak out and do out-of-character things whether it be from revenge, spite, grief, lust, hurt…take your pick. Is going after an unborn child despicable? Need anyone answer that? Of course. But there are too many deplorable acts on soaps cumulatively that it’s kinda silly to just pick one. Can Sabrina’s actions be explained? Yes. Justified…perhaps to a grief-stricken mother seeking to avenge the death of her child at the hands of a murderess…a woman who is now prancing around ready to… Read more »

Hi Ces… I agree with almost everything you said but I disagree where Michael’s concerned. I love him. He is sooooo earnest, so fair-minded, compassionate, intelligent…yet conflicted.

There are several scenes that stand out for me, including the ones from the past 2 days. Exquisite. I also loved the scene after she got out of the jammed elevator w/Todd..I mean Franco. She was talking to Silence..I mean Silas, about their baby that died & how Ava got the life & family she never did. She was so human in that scene. The scenes w/Britt when she learns she’s menopausal were impressive too. My fav was her freakout “Say Something'” repeats at Rafe’s bedside at GH.

It clear Nina has mental issues, but some posters take out their dislike for the character on Michelle, not Nina.

That would be me, CeeCee….I described Ava as “statuesque!” Since it literally means having a “tall and shapely form,” I find it to be befitting of Ms. Jerome.

I absolutely enjoying Michelle Stafford as Nina Clay! Michelle switches gears easily and effortlessly, it seems-one moment she is a betrayed, hurt wife devastated by her cheating husband-the next moment her entire demeanor changes and she becomes demanding, deceitful, and a tad bit evil. Michelle is a great addition to the cast-so very talented!

Ms. Stafford’s is a master class in the art of acting. Her choices on hand, eye, head placement while in character are brilliant!

I couldn’t care less about Nina, her mother, her baby, or her ex-husband.

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

What do you think of GH producing and airing this special episode? Comment below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.

There is no official word on Genie’s first airdate bsck, but stay tuned, as November is just around the corner.

Back on October 7th, Genie posted a photo of herself sharing: “Bye bye New England! So happy to have had a bit of fall!”  Thus, signaling she was headed back to the west coast to re-join GH.

So looking forward to seeing Genie back on GH?  How do you think Laura will try to bring down Cyrus? Comment below.
