GH Looking to Bring Kristina Davis Back Home for Summer! But will it be Lexi Ainsworth?

It’s time for soaps to get ready to beef us those summer storylines, which means, to the dismay of many viewers, younger characters!   Still there are plenty of great young performers on daytime, that do help attract a younger audience when school is out.

Today, ABC Soaps In Depth  revealed that an insider is saying that there is a strong possibility that Port Charles’ Kristina Davis may be heading home from Yale for the summer break.   But while that may be good news for Kristina fans, it may or may not be good news for the talented Emmy nominated, Lexi Ainsworth, who last played this role, and who was sent packing by the previous GH regime!  (Remember, Lexi is also a pre-nominee for this years Emmy race, too) But with Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati in charge now over at GH, will they want to “mature” the character and bring on a new actress?  Or, bring back the popular Ainsworth? 

SID conclusion was:  Kristina’s return to GH is likely.  However, Ainsworth’s return, is up in the air.

So soapers, would you like to see Lexi back on GH? And if not, who would you like to see play Kristina?  Let us know!

Lexi was the one who had chemistry with Ethan. Now that Ethan is gone they may as well bring Lexi back. No reason to age her.

BUT, I think it would be a great idea to recast Kristina and EThan too if he wont come back and have them one the run together with Robert on their trail. He could of visit her at Yale, and instead of going home to PC to leave with Ethan for a summer on the run! 🙂

There was ZERO reason to recast Kristina — even if Ethan were still on GH!!!

Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina and give her the character development that the former regime refused to do.

If NP ever decides to come back, maybe he’ll finally realize that Ethan was only likeable to many fans when he was hanging around Kristina. If he doesn’t want to come back, maybe they could recast Ethan eventually.

There’s really no need for NP/Ethan or recast Ethan to be in PC in order for Lexi’s Kristina (the only Kristina I want to see) to return home.

We know who her parents are and that she is not only a Corinthos but also a Cassadine. There are a ton of potential storylines for Kristina!

Lexi’s Kristina is an organic GH character and should be back in PC!

Emily,I agree with you.she never should have been let go.

Oh, Joe…sounds like shadings of the old Luke and Laura on the run! Fun!

I would like to see Lexi back, I enjoyed her as Kristina. I also wanted to see the storyline between she and Ethan develop, but now that will not happen with Ethan in hiding. I would be curious and happy to see the storyline they would bring Kristina back for.

Emily
Emily

I will always believe in my heart of hearts that Ethan and Kristina will eventually find their way to each other even if it’s never shown on TV.

There are still a number of Ethina fanfiction stories being created and updated.

Not too bad for a “non-couple”!!!

Elhu

I’m with you on that Emily!

If they are smart they will bring Lexi back. She has tons of potential if given great material to play. But I fear they will bring on some other former OLTL actress.

If they are going to bring the character of Kristina back, why shouldn’t Lexi play her? Fans liked her and she was good enough to be nominated in her category. Lexi is 19 years old, the same age as a college freshman. What sense would it make to age her character? Who goes away for college for a year at 18 and comes back in their 20s?

Lexi, she has great chemistry with her mom and sister, too bad they dumped her boyfriend, now tjere was chemistry.

MBmomof3

If they can get the actress to come back they should. She’s very talented, has great chemistry with other cast members, will mix in nicely with the summer young storyline they are surely planning, and from what I’ve heard the fans like her.

Emily

Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Davis! Cartini can correct JFP’s egregious error of firing Lexi in such a discriminatory manner.

I only want Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina. If Kristina is recast, I will tune out again. I quit watching after Lexi was fired but came back w the new regime to give them a fair chance. Well this is it boys! Either right the wrong that was done to Lexi or lose me again as a viewer! It’s really that simple!

Joi

They need to bring Lexi back as Kristina. I’m a huge ethina fan but after Nathan swooned and praised that debacle that was the trash in white he can stay where he’s at. First priority is to get Lexi back. If Nathan wants to come back and SUPPORT the ethina storyline than I’ll gladly accept him, if not then they can recast his butt. My loyalty is to Lexi. I will not watch that show unless she is on it, and a bunch of birdies told me I’m not missing a thing.

Claudia Joy

I too am an Ethina fan but I’m a Kristina fan first and foremost. If NP doesn’t realize the potential of Ethina then I would gladly accept a recast! Or better yet, bring in another tall strapping young man who reminds Kristina of Ethan. SAH-WOON!!!

Cath

Lexi Ainsworth absolutely has to be back as Kristina. She is so talented & would be an asset to the soap if she was used properly. To this day, I still say she was unjustly fired.

Brandon
Brandon

She was unjustly fired. I hope Cartini realizes that bringing back Lexi would also bring back a number of fans who stopped watching when she was fired.

Gina
Gina

She didn’t have alot of fans, the majority of viewers hated her Kristina, she’s not a great actress, and she was a recast herself. She didn’t even have the looks to play Sonny’s daughter. She was fired so they would be able to retool the character later on because her version wasn’t working.

Charlene

Lexi has alot of fans! Stay tuned because she might be back!

I want to see her with the very handsome and devious Jack Manning

Joe

WOW! That would be awesome!!!

david

That is a very good idea. They would make quite an attractive couple. Andrew Trischitta has improved since first appearing on OLTL. It would be interesting to see their chemistry. Their potential pairing could boost summer ratings.

not to mention how upset Sonny and Alexis would be over it.

They could SORAS Jack Manning some, too.

I have to respectfully disagree. Andrew is almost 3 years younger than Lexi in real life. She is 19.5 and he just turned 17. Kristina is the same age as Lexi but I believe Jack is younger than Andrew (15 or 16?). I’d much rather see Kristina with a slightly older gentleman.

Sorry!

Well, wasn’t a fan of Lexi, don’t know what the hype is all over. Could care less one way or another. I DO BELIEVE that she would be a good pairing for Jack, even though he may be younger than Kristina. Its not a BIG viserable difference. Plus Andrew/ Jack has screen presense and is dashing. Kristina with her being short, and with such keen features, makes her look younger, so in fact, they would look around the same age, and thus, it would be a PERFECT pairing, a ratings buster for the Summer months. I think it’s an EXCELLENTE idea, krktoday April 9th, at 7:58pm

I just want Lexi back! Put her with a painting or a pumpkin — oh wait, they did those pairings with another character.

Bring back Lexi Ainsworth!

Emily

Lexi Ainsworth is great. She can act and she had chemistry w/every1. Sonny, her mom, sisters, etc… She had chem w/Ethan too, but the writers didn’t pursue that, not sure why? Not that ship has sailed. If I were casting I’d choose a good actress over aging the actress again (if they want a older look). THe fans like and know her as well as the characters she’s tied to on the show. Sounds like a no brainer if they want to bring “Krissy” back.

krktoday

okay if Jack is to old for Kristina bring him on for Molly. He is a very good looking kid and would be good for adding younger viewer’s during the summer.

Sally

Yes, Jack is a bit young for Kristina but he’d be PERFECT for Molly!

I still want Lexi Ainsworth back as Kristina Davis! NO recast needed!!!

Lisa

They should bring Lexi back.
Ethan is gone ( too bad they chickened out on that one).

Sally

Yep, the former regime really did chicken out of putting Ethan with Kristina! They were adorable!!

Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Davis!!!

And what storyline would they have for Kristina? It would have to be something super (or at least decent) for Lexi to return. Otherwise, just bring in a recast.

Sally
Sally

I don’t want a recast at all. If they don’t have a decent storyline for Kristina then don’t bring her home from Yale.

That was easy!

True!

They should bring back Lexi, Ethan or not. GH handled things with her so badly and with no class. She deserves better.

Steve

Please bring back Lexi!! She was sooo much fun to watch!! What a great actress!!! The idiots who sent her away from the show are stupid!!! I pride myself on seeing talent, and she had it all!! I would say Hell yes! Bring her back!! Lexi only, not a replacement!!

Donna Ward

I would love to see Lexi back as Kristina! Please, don’t recast her, especially with another OLTL actor! She’s a wonderful actress and has great chemistry with Haley, Nancy, and Mo.

tim

If Lexi does return as Kristina she will eventually need a new love interest.My choice would be a slightly aged Jack Manning.

Rusty

I don’t know about Lexi. It may not have been her fault, but the character came across as a whiny brat. I think if Lexi can’t play the part without whining, then maybe they should recast the part.

Wallace
Wallace

That was how the character was written. I’ve seen Lexi in other roles and she never came off as whiny or bratty.

The character Kristina should be matured but not at the cost of losing Lexi. Lexi Ainsworth is capable to portraying a young woman because she is one!!!

Good night and good luck!

Scott

I’d love for another recast of Kristina. Lexi is a cute girl, but she looked 14 trying to act 18/19. I wasn’t found of her acting, and feel like there are stronger actresses out there to portray the role like she should be portrayed.

I’d love to see someone like Natalie Hall (ex-Colby, AMC) come in as Kristina or Valentina de Angelis (ex-Faith, ATWT) as Kristina.

Chachi

I disagree 150%.

Bring back Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Davis!

Thanks… I guess? Not really my loss. I don’t see anything special with her.

Bakula

I disagree too. I’d take a QUANTAM LEAP if Lexi came back as Kristina.

Why so negative, Scott? Do you always attack actresses you don’t like? Ever hear about KARMA?

Scott
Scott

I’m not attacking her Bakula. Lexi seems like a sweet girl. But she was not right for the role of Kristina Corinthos Davis. The role needs to be bold and sassy and she portrayed her as sweet, annoying and whiny.

She wasn’t strong in her portrayal. And my karma is AMAZING. It’s beautiful in fact. No need to worry here.

Brenda

Bring Lexi back. I loved her as Kristina.

Eww don’t bring that girl back, she was horrible with her mean look and lopsided mouth, her only chemistry was with the front door.

Lexi could not act. Her voice was like nails on a chalk board, only knew how to play bratty and crying and nothing else. Plus she looked 12 years old and was not buyable in an adult romance. They need to hire someone else as her smugness WAS NOT APPEALING!

Adam
Adam

You do understand that her voice, bratty attitude and crying was how the writers wanted Lexi to play the part right? Just checking. Lexi is a great actress and if they decided to mature the character a lot (like lose the attitude and dress her like an average college student) then I say bring her back as her character has a lot more to tell and offer to P.C.

ant

YESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

alicia
alicia

Her voice was not instructed. That was Lexi’s regular speaking voice. Those smug looks were not instructed either. She couldn’t act and failed at trying to be sexy.

silverstone

I disagree to infinity.

Will you tune out if Lexi returns? Probably not!

Will Lexi’s fans tune back in if she returns? H-E-L-L YEAH!!!

No brainer there! Bring Lexi Ainsworth back as Kristina!

Bring LA back. She was a good Kristina.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

Photo: ABC

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
