Maxie will choose Nathan but a week later when they are having a romantic dinner, Nathans ex girlfriend Valerie arrives-and if they were once a couple, wouldnt Nathan remember Vals last name and wonder for some time if Luke and Lulu were related to her…i know many people with the same last name arent related but they usually are on a soap…just a thought!

Have hated Spinelli more.
He KNEW Maxie and Nathan were happy & deliberately came to break them up.

He’s more annoying than ever–and that’s saying something. He need to go away.

Love Nathan more each day.

Spinelli is very socially awkward and probably has Asperger’s, but I find him very likable and he certainly means well.

If meaning well means leaving your supportive girlfriend to come break up your former girlfriend’s relationship, then I don’t want to know what NOT meaning well is. Plus he’s staying in Dante’s house, while I believe in the past he’s hated & threatened Dante.

Port Charles was better before Spinelli came back

Hi Michael…I don’t think Spinelli has Aspergers…people with that syndrome are usually limited in imagination…of which Spinelli has a lot, don’t get very emotionally attached, don’t think in the abstract, rtc. I think your first assessment was more accurate…socially awkward probably stemming from insecurity.

I love Spinelli anfpd hope he stays, but I really like Nathan and Maxie. I’d like to see them continue on, and if they break up down the road I wouldn’t mind a revisiting of Maximista and Spinelli. She really can’t go wrong…they’re both great guys.

Also should add, that I am wholeheartedly behind Nathan and Maxie. I really liked Spinelli’s happy ending with Ellie. She was a great fit for the Spinelli. She kept him truthful and forced him to behave like an adult, something I never saw him do with Maxie. And Nathan is a great fit for Maxie for those reasons. He’s brave, mature and caring. he tones down her flakiness. I find Spinelli and Maxie intolerable to watch together. They bring out the worst in each other.

Nathan is my favorite pairing for Maxie so far. I hope he’s the last! Please ptb, give us a REAL love story with a real wedding a year from now! Like the soaps used to do. We suffered with our couples, but it was worth it because we knew they’d be together in the end. Nowadays we just suffer.

I’ve seen Ryan interviewed on several shows as I’m sure many of us have. He comes off as nice in real life as he is on the show…for someone so incredible looking he seems completely uneffected by it. Kirsten always seems down to earth, genuine, as well. Love Maxi…

I don’t think Spins has Asperger. He was written very well after Jason’s death. I feel they are writing him as the awkward Spin of the past to make Nathan look better. It is not working.

TeamSpixie forever.

i am forever #TeamSpixie. Their love story is totally unique for a soap and Kirsten and Bradford have a special magic in scenes together that scenes with Nathan can’t even come close to. Soixie speaks volumns just with there eyes! Having Bradford back with THEIR daughter is the best thing that’s happened since Dec 2013 and I hope he stays and Spixe prevails!!

I’m rooting for Spixie. Spixe are pure magic together. BA and KS play off each other so well and it show when they do scenes together.

I choose Spixie. Maxie and Spinelli have a special connection that you rarely see between two characters. I have rooted for Spixie since the beginning and I will continue to enjoy the Spixie ride.

Team Spixie. Spixie has a great love story with lots of memories. Spixie have been through a lot of good moment’s, and many heartbreaking moment’s together that helped build up this couple over the years. I hope Spixie has many more great moment’s instored for them.

Neither! I loved Maxie with Jessie and Coop. I wished GH went with Jomax and see how they would have fared as a couple. Jomax had a spark and both BB and KS very good actors. So IMO they should of given them at least a couple of months as a couple to see if they would have worked. After a couple of months if they were stale then I would agree to end them but they never got that shot. With Spinelli he annoys me too much to see him with Maxie again. I can tolerate him in scenes… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
