This week on General Hospital, a serial killer wants to finish what he started; Ryan has to find a way to silence Lulu in the hospital, now that he made some sloppy mistakes.  It appears Ryan is becoming more unglued, and wants to get out of Port Charles, pronto, with Ava.   Will she go with him?

Meanwhile, Sonny is faced with a heartbreaking decision.  Mike’s condition is deteriorating and he is becoming more agitated.  Can Sonny face the fact that Mike is better off in a care facility full-time?  How will he be able to live with letting Mike live somewhere else, while his dad lives out the remainder of what is left of his life?

As great as Jon is playing Ryan, we need to see Kevin plus, this story is making everyone look clueless. This would have worked better as a 6 to 8 week story.

The police and Laura know that Lulu was the victim of the serial killer and yet no one thinks of stationing in armed guard outside her hospital room?

I wish they would wrap up this story. I’ve been trying to stick it out but it’s actually getting annoying to watch. The police work is a joke and why isn’t there a guard outside of Lulu’s room? Please end this story!

Ryan’s storyline had so much potential. Unfortunately, others get more air-time than Felicia, etc. (Carly, Lulu, Peter)

He is going to get caught soon

We need to get Carly at Ferncliff with Laura and they find Kevin
But when they get him out, Ryan is gone

All I have to say is this storyline needs to end. It’s way over due time.

RIVETING STUFF

@Shelly – AND – Chris

you (s) “surprised” ME … YES ! YES ! YES !

Kevin is still BLIND !!! W – O – W

WOW .. hows this for dual role REAL !!!! for REEL.. this is top draw

NOW … hope beyond that Shelly and Chris take their time in fleshing out the interactions AS BROTHERS…

COULD ??? Ryan play this off… that “Kevin” walked in on “the attack” and get Lulu to be convinced it wasn’t “Ryan” ??? THIS IS THAT GOOD… TO DISTEND … OK ? AND this is @GH

Hats off to Jon Lindstrom… thee only thing going on in Port Charles.. and he’s EPIC

it’s just startling… AND it’s all because he doesn’t have the annoying Carly and Laura nipping at his heels… the actor is playing out stuff…. jeez louise get it Shelly and Chris. play stuff out…

for example.. even if we know that Sam married Shiloh father and he lost his inheritance… PLAY OUT THE GORGEOUS Shiloh… OK he’s a little staid… and if we have to wait over a year for “stuff” to play out… wink wink… now that the trigger shot – off – with little left to the imagination… we can now overlook Sam and Jason… oy ! this is going to be so annoying.. watching Kelly Monaco ‘ Sam be front and center… so ho hum… now that Spinelli is just a phone call away… and now Sonny will have time to do his interject… GOD it was so annoying watching Sonny and Laura play out the waiting game as Lulu is in surgery. he’s a little man of no consequence. nothing earnest ever plays out with Sonny and Carly. YOU(s) Shelly and Chris have written EVERY THING possible for this couple.. and nothing has truly worked… certainly not with the desired demographic… 18-49 women .

think about it… you have a budget constraint.. you have lack of imagination.. you focus entirely on these two.. and to no avail….. FOCUS .. on all the readily available cast !

Jon Lindstrom… is bringing you(s) bells and whistles… ring him up ! it’s just gobsmacking good stuff.. because he’s so handsome.. and to see him so lively enchanting even.. how his dark side and his direct approach.. ie: Laura.. and how easily he dismisses his agenda… and plays with Ava. dag! he rung up Anna and Robert. LOL

my one chief complaint… why does Finn have to be Anna lap dog… he’s the stink on shit … since when did this miracle cure doctor… become a WSB agent… helping with interrogation GOD it’s painful to state:

it’s just not the same giddy excitement that Anna brings any more. knowing she is stuck with Finn and Peter… just riles and is right up their in character assassination… KNOWING SHE’S STUCK W/ Michael Easton AND Wes Ramsey… is losing all enjoyment of Finola Hughes… PERIOD

I can’t wait to see the ratings of January 24, 2019. ie: any uptick having to do with Jason and Sam celebrating their love with their legion of fan

Hilarity ensue: Laura w/Lulu telling “Nurse”

Laura: “she got “really” upset”
Nurse: “Ok, I’m going to increase her pain meds”

laugh out loud… can we say opioid connect ? what better way for “Ryan” to shut her down… dependency hysteria

in the interim… now that the story is in full throttle… we must be able to see Kevin and Ryan dual role EPIC. flesh this out !

OKAY another Laura un momento

she’s with Ava in the hospital

Laura : “Thank you for checking on my daughter”
Ava: “I wouldn’t wish what happened to kiki on any one daughter, or their mother” as she also shared : “I’m glad your daughter was able to escape” then she walks. AS ONLY Maura West CAN DO : RING IT UP !!!! you feel sorry for Ava.. truly do.. because it was the one constant we loved about Ava… her motherly instinct with both Kiki and Avery… outside of the torried affair.. it was all that.

I cant exaggerate ^^^ this EPIC play w/thee Jon Lindstrom… when all the fans have at one time or another clamored for the rest of the cast to be featured.. and this one man show is a veteran. pull out all the stops does he not?

GOD – isn’t if fair to say : Shelly and Chris AND Jean, in the past HAVE RUNG OUT EVERY THING… out of Sonny and Carly ; Jason and Sam ; Michael ; Finn ; Franco ; Peter ?????? GOD it’s so tiresome to watch these same old same old lost so much luster ; lost so much care ; lost so much light. there’s no mindset for repeat …

@General Hospital has a huge cast to fill that one hour; 5 day a week for 52 weeks. it just boggles the mind that this is pure laziness . just no imagination.

FEATURE YOUR WHOLE CAST – PLEASE

hi Patrick..
Anna is too old for Fin..
She’s a grandma with a teenaged grandchild
also- too old for any agency as-
The FBI, CIA, MILITARY age limit to enter is 36 years of age..
and this WSB has senior citizens as their agents ahaaa!!

I really really want the dark players back, they are sorely needed.. GH has become excruciating dull, I want some hardcore drama !! like the old days, the 90’s ..

OMG Ryan is going to be hypnotizing Lulu and Franco. Certainly Jordan will want to be present, but will Ryan insist that there be no audience. Even if Ryan tries to have Franco “confess”, I have always heard a hypnotized person will never do something, they wouldn’t ordinairily do when not under a spell. Next few days should be pretty good. Too bad this is so boring to some people, I am enjoying it, but want it to be resolved soon, although I am not looking forward to the new SL wainting in the wings, with that freak Shiloh. He’s too creepy for me. He’s got Krissie mesmerized, which is his intention, I’m sure.

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.

The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

Photo: ABC

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.

Michael Easton Shares on the Loss of Kamar de los Reyes, “I Was Holding His Hand When He Passed”

For the first time publicly, General Hospital’s Michael Easton (Finn) opened up about losing his best friend, the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, OLTL) to cancer.

The former One Life to Live and All American star lost his battle to cancer back on December 24, 2023 at the age of 56. De los Reyes leaves behind his wife, actress Sherri Saum (ex-Sunset Beach, OLTL) and their twin boys, Michael and John, and his eldest son, Caylen from a previous relationship.

Easton along with Y&R’s Trevor St. John (Tucker) were both castmates with Kamar during their time on One Life to Live. The two shared their remembrances this past Thursday night during’s live virtual event, Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit for Stand Up To Cancer … We All Have a Story.

In tribute, Michael expressed, “It was a 30-year friendship with Kamar. We did our first movie together in 1990. I was scared and I was quiet and I was instantly drawn to his bravado and his sense of himself. Kamar was larger than life. He was the best man at my wedding, and I am the godfather to his son, Michael. His loss was profound on all of us.”

He added, “There hasn’t been a day gone by that I haven’t thought of him, and his family and what he brought to this world, and the contributions he made, not only to this acting community. He loved being an actor and he was a great actor. I always like to say Kamar was such a good actor that they cast him as a priest, not just once, not twice, like seven times. I mean, he was often shirtless. But, if you needed a shirtless priest, Kamar was your guy.”

When discussion turned to the end of Kamar’s life, Michael shared, “I was holding his hand when he passed, and he was surrounded by family and, and friends. There was so much love around him. I mean, he touched so many lives. I mean, Trevor knows that at his memorial, it was the biggest, at Forrest Lawn. They couldn’t even fit everybody in. There was people stretched out all the way to outside. People showed that hadn’t seen him in 20 years. That was the effect. So many of the One Life cast members came and cast from All American.”

Michael also spoke to Kamar’s determination till the end and his incredible work ethic, “Extraordinarily enough, he went to work two weeks before he passed at All American.  He was fierce to the end. He never talked about being sick. Even though the odds were stacked from the very beginning, and it’s still really hard for me to talk about, but I was in awe of his strength and his resolve. I would’ve shut down long before he did.”

If you haven’t done so watch below 46:47 mark for Michael and Trevor’s emotional appearances on Daytime Stands Up as they share their memories on Kamar.
