GH Preview – Week of August 13, 2018

Courtesy/ABC

This week on General Hospital, Griffin (Matt Cohen) is about to spill the beans that he had sex with Ava’s (Maura West) daughter, Kiki (Hayley Erin) during Kiki’s sexual harassment trial against Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).  Now that Ava knows the truth about their tryst, what will she do to the man she loves and her daughter?   And the verdict will also come down on who won the case Bensch or Kiki?

Then, Robert (Tristan Rogers) enlists Jason (Steve Burton) to help track down Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).  How will these two unlikely allies get along? Can they work together to find the duo before it’s too late?

Finally, a little payback for Ava, although it wasn’t done intentionally.
Even if Kiki slept with Griffen or anyone else of HER choice, what does that have too do with being sexually harassed by someone like Benche?

I quess its karma but it also proves Kiki is just as bad as the mamma who raised her…Griffen the ex priest…of course!!!

Hey, Jimmy….I think Kiki is a good person who had too much to drink to “escape” the hirtors of one Dr. Bunch-of-perversion. Ratz!!
Griffin, on the other hand, I think, has been a fake since the beginning…..
What I mean is, he kept using the name of God and Christ, and the Catholic Church as an excuse! Sacrilegious!!
Ava has pegged him right—-bullseye!!

Maybe this will lead to Kiki finding out Ava isnt her momma

Jimh, Sorry, but in no way is Kiki like her mother. Did you not see the night in question? They were both drunk, and were not just giving in to their selfish urges as Ava and Morgan did, with no regard or loyalty to Kiki, and more than once, also with Ava posing as Denise DeMuccio, I think was the name she used, for her fake cousin.

Poor Ava. I want her to be happy. Griffin and baby Avery makes three. I just want Ava to walk away from the Carly/blanket fiasco without being discovered. Enough of Sonny and Carly having the upper hand with her. Glad she helped make Carly pay. Now let it be and let Ava keep her child.

Will Griffin come clean on the stand? Dilemma. He was able to stand by the oath of telling the truth when he wasn’t directly asked if he and Kiki had sex. But once Alexis wanted verification that he and Kiki never had sex he’s going to face a critical point; lie under oath or throw himself, Kiki and Ava under the bus. Either way his conscience and the repercussions will come rolling down…

And, as much as I love Alexis her disrespect and dismissal of Franco cost her and Kiki. Can’t stand the way the writers have these characters condescend to some of the others. Used to feel that way about how they treated AJ.

I realize Ava is ballistic, but to tank a legitimate harassment case due to the “woman scorned” reflex is unconscionable even for her. Says more about Ava than the cheating does about Kiki or Dr. Happy Pants. And of course it means more of the furrowed brow/worried and afraid look pasted on Griffin’s lovely face. And does anyone else think that Alexis is a lousy attorney?

I have always believed Ava cares more for herself than anyone else.She wanted Avery so badly, where is she then? She took her away from her family, and who does she have now, a nanny? So she finds out about Griffen and Kiki’s one night (drunken) stand, well so much for her spiel about women’s rights against creeps like Benche. All she can think about is their betrayal, and whether Kiki wins or loses, I bet she’ll be on her knees apologizing to her mother. Ava thinks she’s God’s gift to all men, and once they have her, should never want another.As far as Griffen goes, I think his religious background has restrained him in some ways that other men think of as natural behavior.Every time after he’s been with Ava, I think he’s looking for the nearest confessional. I think he should have remained a priest.

Happy Pants?…must jot that down, LOL….
I missed about three eps and haven’t had a chance to catch up….except for today.
What happened to make Scotty flip? Did Ava get to him??????
Can’t mess with a woman scorned, Soaphound. Actually, don’t mess with Ava in any way, shape or form.
Wow!! I wouldn’t want to be her….can’t seem to have her either as friend or foe. Poor thing—no friends!!
I fear for Griffin and Kiki. Would Ava bring harm upon her own daughter’s head?…..
…..then again, Kiki is not hers…..biologically, that is.❤️

Oh Celia, poor Scott tried his best to throw the trial but once Franco sent the “KIKI AND GRIFFIN HAD SEX” text to Ava in error (it was meant for Alexis), Ava hit the DETONATE button and laid into Scotty. He had no choice. And I’m sorry, I like Matt Cohen and do think he’s beyond beautiful, but I enjoyed her slapping the daylights out of him. That frozen expression of woe has worn out…get him out of this story, pronto!

Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! I answered your last reply on the “Aretha” thread a week or more ago, but it didn’t post…anyway, since you brought up the Bensch trial, I have been mulling a notion that I’ve been meaning to discuss with you ever since its culmination. That is, how is it that nobody pointed out the HUGE conflict of interest regarding Alexis in her capacity as representing Kiki, et al, in this matter? I should hardly think that it would be considered legally kosher for a woman whose own sexual advances were spurned by a man to then go and, in the capacity as an attorney, file suit against same said male for harassing other females for sex against their will. The whole thing just reeks of impropriety and any defense lawyer or judge worth their salt would have pointed out this major no-no in a very big way. As you said, a woman scorned! Seems Ava’s not the only one with an axe to grind in this sorry scenario…..(Quite frankly, I would have rather seen Diane take down the creep in court…at least she would have had no skin in the game, personally-speaking!)

Celia

Hi, Shaybelle,
I apologize if I made myself scarce…..Giselle ( “Elle”, my twin) had twins!!!!!!!! Beautiful baby girls!!!! The boys are now outnumbered, LOL.
Yes, there is a huge discrepancy…..put it on the writers. The same idiocy is happening on Y&R….Seems to me the “scribes” create their work willy-nilly; without checking the legality or sense behind their “work”— it’s hit or miss.
As far as Ava, I will always love her….her acting is impeccable. And, she’s a Bostonian. LOL.
Nancy is doing more than her best with what she’s given. No, it would not be kosher to be on the other side of the legal “table”; however, as I said, that’s on the writers.
By the by—-what say you about Kiki potentially being Nina’s? Or Nelle? Everyone else had given up….except for me and Jimh. He suggested Nelle. I stuck with Kiki, or perhaps twins: Nelle and Kiki.
Griffin. His sanctimonious arse gets on my nerves. I detest hypocrites and those who think they’re just a step above the next person. You know who I mean, Shay?…..the typical nouveaux riches who look down on those who ‘smell’ like Wal-Mart shoppers…..
I cannot recall the poster who remarked ( could have been regarding Y&R) the remaining soaps seem to only cater to the ‘elite’ or upper crust…..no other levels of society. Life is not presented as LIFE!!
Where are we headed, Shay? ……how Orwellian!!
He did have some exceptional foresight. I think we are almost there. Leave it to George and his fantastical brain.
1984—-A little late, but, chances are this ‘elimination’ will happen in our lifetime.

Shay

I’ve always thought Alexis was a lousy attorney…and mother…and example of womanhood, in general!!!

Celia
Celia

Ahhhh, Ava, Ava, Ava….when will thou ever learn? Karma is a B—it’s that simple and that difficult.
Griffin….thy sanctimonious self never had credence…..”What mad pursuit? What struggle to escape?”.
It was always Kiki; Ava a substitute.
Kiki…”More happy love! more happy, happy love! For ever warm and still to be enjoy’d, For ever panting, and for ever young; That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloy’d…….”….. oh, Kiki; stay true to yourself …….
The end of another romance made in both heaven and he!! No more Ava. No more Griffin. Thank Odin!! ( still love both Ava and Maura—-Griffin? Meh….but, he IS hot !!)
What a soapy travesty!!

CELIA, CELIA, this is off-topic but I just returned from weekly groceries and…you’ve got to take a look at this week’s ABC SOAPS IN DEPTH. The CENTERFOLD is our Chase/Josh on a motorcycle. Honey, take a fan with you because I nearly lost my balance…felt like a teenager again. Needless to say, the mag found its way to my home. Let me know if you see it. Suddenly, our insane California heat seems justified!

Celia

Thanks for the rundown…Scotty did try. Poor guy….love him!!
I quoted “Ode To A Grecian Urn” because the ode wasn’t to an urn at all, but indirectly to the fantasy and fallacy of lovers and loves gone wrong, or right?! Remember those days? We had to sweep our brain clean and introduce words and phrases that made little sense….until it clicked….the good, the bad, and the ugly….and sometimes the dirty…..brings me back to High School where I only had eyes for one guy, smack in the midst of English class and “odes” to this and that.
Then, we had to scramble the brain back to normal until Shakespeare ( Will, my live) hit us.
Amazingly, I remembered certain lines….go figure…
As far as Josh and his beautiful self, I did see it…..my housekeeper is crazy about him, Matt Cohen, Billy Flynn and Casey…..never misses an issue. We actually ‘discuss’ their ‘attributes’ in great detail over a cup of coffee or two, or three??….
As my Gran is wont to say, “…..so dreamy…..”!!

0ooh drat!
Give me some hard Cassidine action–
and give some Jerry Jax and Johnny,arise Faison give me the the Zacchara’s and Alcazar’s !!

I’m getting brain damage from all the sweetness pored into GH; a sugrer overdose.

Ava had it coming..
After all. Ava had sex with Morgan Kiki’s man..
how did that go again lol
anyways tit for tat.

I said the same thing in different words, SuzieQ. We keep playing with fire; we will get burned. Listen to me, now…..wise words ‘n all, LOL.

Excuse me while I rant some, and let my B.P come down a little. Where does Ava get off thinking she is such a victim, because her daughter slept with her boyfriend? Maybe Griffin deserved that slap, but so does she. She thinks she has good reason to hate Kiki and Griffin, but it didn’t seem wrong when she slept with Morgan right after he and her OWN daughter were married, and afterwards. Why don’t these writers see fit to have someone call her out on this? Even Franco, with everything he said today, didn’t mention that little fact. She may be a woman scorned, but she’s also a scornful person. Well at least she’ll have burned her bridges with Griffin, after he finds out about her payback, and how she got it. Excuse mistakes please.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
