GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?

Here are more teasers for the action coming up on  GH:

MONDAY JUNE 18

Obrecht covers her tracks.

TUESDAY JUNE 19

Nelle reflects on her past.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 20

Michael confronts Chase.

THURSDAY JUNE 21

Nina demands answers.

FRIDAY JUNE 22

Valentin’s romantic gesture back fires.

So, what story point are you looking forward to playing out this week on GH? Let us know in the comment section below.

I just want to see Nelle get what she deserves. She should go to Ferncliff and Carly should get to come home.

Of course, Jason will somehow someway rescue his damsel in distress Carly.
It is what he was created to do, rescue Carly and he will not disappoint he will rescue her, it’s his job lol.

I hope it will not take Jason 3 months to rescue Carly, sigh..

“Be Strong ; Stay Focused ; Go Home ” is Carly this week, Little Dorothy ? i was cracking up @the Head Nurse in Charge . NOW she… was Funny… as Carly tells her she wants to be a little STAR. no sooner was it … yes it’s possible.. that we could rung out some thing emmy worthy for Laura Wright’ Carly. but no… it’s going to be Jason to the rescue as he’s the new Janitor. looks like Mike is going to NUT UP for the cause. it’s the WIERDEST THING …. I felt nothing… not one ounce of… Read more »

Agreed. Carly is a text book narcissist with no redeemable qualities. Wright plays her as being loud, obnoxious, stomping in and out with a hair flippin’ attitude.

Hmmmm….we do think alike, many times, Patrick. Coincidentally, we used exactly the same phrase….” Jason to the rescue”. I said the same thing on the June 11th thread. What I don’t understand is how Carly has become the heroine/damsel in distress. Perhaps I am watching a different show….But, what she and Sonny did to AJ was so remarkable, it is hard to digest all this adoration and adulation towards this entitled Prima Donna. I remember the episode so well, Patrick….I guess it’s because I was new at GH. Love Laura Wright….dislike Carly immensely. I also suggested that Kevin was not… Read more »

Hey, CeeCeeGirl! Where have you been? Alright, I hope! Anyway, I once used to really champion Laura Wright regardless of my ever-growing distaste for Carly, but since she’s been responsible for bringing her real-life boyfriend to the GH canvas, my tolerance for her has been greatly diminished. She has worn out her welcome…However, in terms of Kevin, I think it would be a laugh riot if Ryan were to resurface in Port Charles and take over Kevin’s life….provided Laura is not in the mix and could be hurt by it! I think it would be especially comical if he were… Read more »

Hey, there, Shaybelle….. After our ten-year anniversary ‘bash’, my husband whisked me away to my favorite city, ‘N-Ahhlins ( New Orleans) for a few days. I missed my kids so much….had never left them for so long before. He surprised me—had a band, dozens of friends and family members— Great music, Shay…My favorites…..Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”, “First Time Even I saw Your Face”; George Michael’s version….Jude even sang LADY ( Styx), WICKED GAMES ( Chris Isaak) to me. Glad to be back with my babies…..LOL. I am glad you see Alexis’ naiveté , Shay. I think she has such… Read more »

NOLA???? Laissez le bon temp rouler! And it sounds like they did….awww, congrats to both Jude and you, CeeCeeGirl!…That surprise celebration was amazing….whatta guy! It’s funny that all this transpired over the last week because I was just listening to GM’s touching version of “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” in a mix of my own old favorites and I thought of the two of you! Coincidence??? (I also LOVE Styx’s “Lady”….) Anyway, I’m so glad that the reason for your absence from here was such a joyful one…wishing you many, many years of future love and happiness together!… Read more »

Thank you, Shay…. I love New Orleans. Each time we descend upon that bustling, colorful city, I force Jude to visit at least one alligator farm with me. We take the tour….not that I enjoy the droning guide’s voice, but, I have no choice, right? LOL. I am fascinated by the crocodilian species….since I was ver young. Go figure!! LOL. As far as Alexis, I must agree with you where Julian is concerned. The writers are soooo working this therapy stuff ad nauseam. As I said from the onset, the idea was borne for one reason only; that is, fuse… Read more »

Hmmmm….sounds like Jude should add “Crocodile Rock” to his repetoire! Lol…but okay, CeeCee, if you dig crocs (not the footwear….) then whatever floats your boat! And here I was planning to ask if you had visited Oak Alley Plantation! My all-time favorite boss lived in NOLA immediately after her college graduation and her most raved about place was this Antebellum attraction! She said that it was just like stepping back in time and that she attended many beautiful events at this venue and they were always so elegant and gracious!!!

Oh, boy, Shay….not you , too!! LOL. You know how many times I’ve been called weird for having this thing with crocodilians? There is a very scientific explanation…the .crocodilian ( including crocs, gators, caimans etc) is a living dinosaur. I am awed by this fact!!!!! Amazed!!!!! There are only two species of Alligators—the Chinese, and the America. The crocodile comes in many names…..the biggest is the saltwater croc….then the Nile etc. The shark and the platypus are two others…..imagine, Shay–500 million years ago…. I do realize that little boys indulge in such a subject…..but, amid frills and bows, mascara and… Read more »

No,no, CeeCee….I would never mock your many intellectual pursuits! I’m in awe of the gift you possess for the sciences…be it in physics, paleontology, or whatever…you never cease to amaze me! I was simply a bit surprised by the choice of pursuit when in NOLA…it’s not exactly what initially comes to mind when one considers the landmark attractions of this historical city…just glad you enjoyed your trip! At any rate, it’s abundantly clear that as a couple, Julian and Alexis belong to the past, but it appears that the writers think otherwise what with their concocted machinations to put them… Read more »

I was kidding, Shay!! LOL……I know you would never think of me as weird, as by siblings do, LOL. Bizarre, is what they, actually, call me. They equate my thinking to that of Greg Gutfeld’s (do you watch his show?).HaHa….. I thank you for your oh-so-very complimentary words. I have lost count of how many times I have been to NO…..I’ve seen it all—love the French Quarter—-I never tire of going. Have you ever been? Mardi Gras is the most fun time to visit. The same as Florida—-I always find time to tour multiple alligator/crocodile farms. Last time I visited,… Read more »

You are so right about that, CeeCee! I consider you to be uniquely fascinating…with such a delightful melange of interests and aspects to your multi-faceted personality! As for Gutfeld….Oh sure, I have watched him…the last time was when you gave me the heads-up about Sean K.’s appearance on his show, so if he makes a repeat engagement, please let me know! But yes, Greg does make me laugh! (So, how much coffee do you think this high-octane dude consumes in any given day???) I find Judge Jeanine much the same……that booming voice and her take-no-prisoners attitude are both refreshing and… Read more »

Hey, Shay…. Sorry it took a while to answer….recital night….all my nieces and my daughter ( have you ever watched four-year-olds on stage dancing?—-cutest thing). Love Gutfeld—-funniest libertarian…..I watch all of them, time permitting. Laura, for sure….Judge Jenine, always!! ( Saturday night is the night, when home). Tucker? Hmmmm. I don’t like how he laughs in guests’ faces…..say what he must, but STOP ridiculing. Also, he always has a puzzled look on his face. Love Hannity, but he interrups too much. Watching TV has become sort of pitiful…..I am happy watching ‘old’ shows. There was some level of respect for… Read more »

PS. Shay,
Aren’t you sick of the disappearing body-act? If it were not for Mike, I would FF any scene with Sonny….but, I enjoy watching every word spoken by Mike….his every nuance is a pleasure to see.
It would be great irony if Julian found the body buried somewhere under Charlie’s. Stick it to the make-believe Don Corleone.

Maybe Carly was really speaking to Ryan Chamberlain in the psych ward. Remember when General Hospital had good storylines, that made you want to tune-in? Storylines that touched your heart about relationships, friendship, and real social issues? Now, we have “actors” being hired in the parking lot because their girlfriend has a continuous need to prop them up. No thanks.

I sort of hate that Chase was involved with Nelle, but if he is, I hope he’ll handle it better than he has so far. We need a good guy to root for (enough of Sonny!) and I really like Josh Swickard. Also love the Drew & Oscar scenes (how adorable is Oscar?) and that the Sam & Jason obsession has been proven the bore it really is. Heck, even Jason is keeping as busy as possible and is more fun sans Sam. Regarding Ferncliff, I have only one comment: more of the wonderful Patricia Bethune as the the Nurse… Read more »

you are not alone in thinking, that.

Nelle has been written in to a corner… heck… even if I was a sinister as Nelle character… I’d at least show her screaming at the walls.. just how dull Michael is. oy!

especially about the Nurse Ratched wannabe… “I” laughed wholeheartedly. WAS so disappointed in seeing “Jason” that same day… knowing.. the fun in watching Frank Valentini PET Laura Wright’ Carly.. NOT NUT UP . or act… emmy worthy… is a moot point. Frank Valentini sole focus are ALL missing in action with no depth. they are all repeatedly put in one story after another.. that that could be their let.. paycheck… they just don’t care. however you jumble this mess. it’s the dullards who surface day in and day out… with no root value.. cheer … or want to care about.… Read more »

and endanger the child.

What too many have forgotten–
Alexis stabbed Julian in the back, to kill him.
Alexis ran Julian over, to kill him.
Julian held a knife to Alexis through but he did Not harm her.
Seems to me that Alexis is the dark one.

rebecca1

I like Julian AND Alexis but, you do realize that Alexis accidentally ran over Julian while she was inebriated (and he was running toward her) and she stabbed him in the back after he had a knife to her throat and was fighting Sonny?

And, you also realize that Sonny stopped Julian while he held a knife to her throat? (I’m not convinced Julian would have harmed her; thinking he would have attempted to stage it for his cray-cray sister Olivia’s eyes) but still…

and endanger the child.
Guest
and endanger the child.

hi rebecca..
thing is BOTH have done near death stuff to each other.
Neither actually killed each other LOL
They are even-up, one is no better than the other..
And still– Julian is the one that was stabbed (not Alexis)and run over (not Alexas) Julian got the worse of it all.

rebecca1

rebecca1

Alexis was madly in love with Julian. Everything she did was in self defense. No comparison.

Alexis didn’t set out to hurt Julian. The “stab” was after he held a knife to her throat and was then fighting with Sonny who saved her; the second she was already afraid of him, he was running after her and she pulled out not realizing he was by the car. I honestly don’t see a comparison. You’d be a horrible juror for a person up on a charge of murder when it was self defense! 😉

Dear Rebecca1, I’m torn on Julexis. Liked them together but like Julian without her, too. But… are you watching NASHVILLE? Show is falling apart. Hardly any music and obnoxious new people (with the exception of the lovely, underrated Mia Maestro as Rosa). What’s happened to our beloved show? They’ve made Will into the new Rayna…The person everyone confides in and fixes things. Chris Carmack is really shining but the others are adrift.

Oh Joss, watch your back. It won’t take Nelle long to remember that you picked up the stuff, that fell out of her bag. She’ll eat you alive, look what she’s done to the rest of your family. You stood up for her, against your mother, calling her your friend. Naive little girl.

I love Drew Cain. What a shame TPTB don’t on GH. I was so excited when he was about to get his memory back and now nothing. They occasionally trot him out to talk to Oscar and that’s about it. I thought Guza was bad shoving his pets in our face, but now it’s just as bad. If Billy is planning to leave, I hope another soap snaps him up.

Soaphound

I agree, KMB. But the day Billy leaves, so do I. I adore Chase but Billy’s acting really moves me and GH needs to give him more emotional heavy lifting. We need it and he has proven he can run with it.

Yes, yes, and yes, Soaphound….my Billy doth make my heart flutter.
…..about Alexis and Julian? I looove Alexis–without Julian. Her brain isn’t afflicted by cobwebs when ‘standing’ outside of his looming, dark shadow.
Whatever she did against him was BECAUSE of him. He forced her to choose the bottle …..became her best friend…..
I will never accept his explanations….wittle baby boy awfwaid of his wicked-witch sistaw.
So, TPTB may very well stop trying convincing the viewer. I am sure many want them together…..so, just do it and be done already. It’s painful to watch…..always an excuse to walk into that demoralizing establishment.

Soaphound

Celia, demoralizing is a generous word for that dive-ola. But wait, Sonny says it’s the new hot spot (how would HE know?). They must be grading on a curve. And let’s face it, Julian is just a booty call for Alexis. I must say, though, given his looks and her erratic behavior around him….he must be REALLY GOOD. Just saying.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yeah, it’s the new hot spot, alright…..the “UNburied” guy from Croton-on-Hudson, of which Mike dug up, is BURIED somewhere under/in the walls of Charlie’s. LOL.
Oooh, yeah….Julian must be really good—-just look at Kim… She looks as satisfied as a purrrring tabby, licking her paws while poor Alexis’ eyes look hungry!!
I hope my new favorite girl does not slip up …..not fall into the chasm that is Julian.

It is a bit disheartening to see a mental health institution being portray in such stereotypical way–but beside that, I am starting to get a weird vibe around Dr. Collins, like he might be in cahoots with that nurse–I don’t think he is going to the friend Carly is hoping he will be– and sorry Jasam fans– it looks like they might be building up to a Carly Jason pairing– not for the long haul, but I can see with his siding with her and Sonny not believing her–then being put into this “dangerous situation”– some kind hook up might… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
