GH Preview – Week of March 25, 2019

Photo Credit: ABC

All roads lead to Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and you can put Willow (Kaetlyn MacMullen) in the mix now that it has been revealed she used to be in Dawn of Day and as she confesses to Chase (Josh Swickard), that she had Shiloh’s baby.

That would mean that Willow believes the baby Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are raising is hers with Shiloh! Willow finally admits the truth to Chase, but says that she must leave town as to not jeopardize the safety of her baby.  Chase tells her he will keep her safe and to stay in town.  Will she give their romance a fighting chance?

Meanwhile, all of Port Charles is reeling from the news that Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) knew that his serial killer twin brother, Ryan was alive and that he was treating him before his escape from Ferncliff and trading places with him.  Will Laura (Genie Francis) ever take Kevin back?  Will Ava (Maura West) continue to hope that she can end Ryan’s life herself, if he survived the fall from the bridge in Niagara Falls?

And ,something is not right with Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) homecoming.  We saw that he has scars and marks all over his back, which leads one to believe he was tortured while in captivity and on his mission.  Will anyone see that Dante needs help desperately?

Check out these teasers for this week’s GH’s and the latest promo for the soap below.  Then, let us know what storypoint you are looking forward to seeing the most via the comment section below.

I gotta say;
The Dawn of Day is a Fail..
It is boring and totally not interesting..
There is no deep sense to it, it’s weak very weak..

Here’s hoping April will actually have some drama.
And perhaps some gripping suspense.. bwahaa what am I thinkin yah sure! haaa!

Yes, SusieQ….Dawn of Day is missing the mark for me. However, I am beginning to like Willow….she isn’t so wishy-washy, afterall.
I think someone other than Coby Ryan should have been cast.
He has neither a magnetic personality, nor does he have the looks to match. He is ineffective, in my opinion.
Shiloh is shallow—-he needs a shower and a shave—I like short beards on a guy, but “Shilow’s” looks like an unkempt lawn with bald/dry spots.
Never have I wanted Jason to punch someone out as I do Shiloh.
Then, there’s Dante. “I must complete the mission.”…

SuOOO,
Actually Michelle Stafford leaving to go back to Y&R was drama and a shock to me. The suspense will be, whether they will re-cast, and who will it be.

Only thing I look forward to on this show are Franco/Elizabeth, Finn/Anna, Ava, Laura, Kevin/Ryan. The rest is garbage.

You hang in there Denise. It’s got to get better, as things progress , things will get worse at Drones Of Despair, until they bring down Shiloh. I just hope Jason doesn’t cut his own throat, by taking him down.The SL with Willow and Nina, should really be good, and the ones with the SL’s with the ones you mentioned, except for Anna who is getting on my very last nerve!

So, do you agree with me that Willow is really Nina’s daughter, Violet? What would truly give this story life would be if Sasha and Willow ere twins—-Nina’s babies!! I can’t wait for Dawn of Day never sees another dawn. When will Michael embrace the Big Reveal? That Wiley is Jonas? Or is it Jonah? Such repetitive storylines hold no interest–overly-used. No anticipation. Laura Wright is pregnant—according to scuttlebutt—as soon as Carly announced her pregnancy, I did say that Laura must be pregnant. No way would a Carly pregnancy be introduced at this stage. Oh, Lordy Lord, Miss Violet—-Anna? You… Read more »

H Ceia Let’s start from the bottom, OK? You said “stupid SL”. Well what’s even stupider, is Peter and Robin being twins, and Rbt. Scorpio being the father. We know he doesn’t like Peter, so it makes sense. I thought L.W might be pregnant, since she has been carrying something over her belly, for a while now. I really liked Anna, I just don’t know why the writers don’t. With M.S leaving, what will happen to Nina and Willow discovering each other? I would think they will re-cast, can’t just dump this SL which I am really getting into. Keep… Read more »

Hi, Violet, Getting ready for Sunday Mass…..always in a hurry… So, I apologize for typos in advance. I should get into the habit of looking below where autocorrect appears—-yet, even autocorrect gets it wrong, sometimes, LOL. I know all about cults—part of my studies in modern Humanities, as it were. However, most are impressionable kids—to target people in their forties, as Shiloh tried with Jason, Sam, Brad etc….is definitely off course….unless, said adults are of feeble mind…. Nonetheless, it is a soap, therefore, reality becomes part of the abstract. Peter and Robin being twins iwith different fathers is a soap-bubbles-fare…eg.… Read more »

Celia, Thanks for taking a little time for me before church. I know what you mean about twins with different fathers. You may be too young to have seen GL years ago, when Blake had the honor. Anyway, what I referred to in my previous comment was Anna supposedly gave birth to twins, both of them fathered by Scorpio, with Peter being given to Faison. I am not sure how reliable this info is, but if it’s true, we know how Robert feels about Peter.I know what you’re saying about Alex being Peter’s mother, but do we know this for… Read more »

OOOO, I love that idea, Violet!!…Gina playing Willow’s mom. …there could, potentially, be a lot of story there…. Scorpio is really Peter’s father? Oh, I missed that episode, I guess—I didn’t know. WOW!! I cannot remember the story too well of how Alex and Anna became estranged. I “knew” both from AMC; but it was Dr. Alexandra Devane Marick with whom I was most familiar. I am just speculating about Peter being Alex’s son….who knows? When the time is convenient for TPTB, they may take advantage of it—it would add shock, mystery and attraction to the plotless story– As it… Read more »

Celia Didn’t mean to mislead but the thing I said about Scorpio being father to Robin and Peter is still rumour. Yes Anna can cry, almost as good as Victor Newman. I am not M.S biggest fan, but her scenes with Jeff B.were hot! I’ve loved Josh Morrow, since he was a kid. Always thought he was cute and sexy, and he can do no wrong. He just gets mixed up with the wrong women. I think the only one I approved of was Sage. Spoken like a mom, or grandma. I’ll settle for any title, if he’d have me.… Read more »

Love what’s happening on the show now. I hope the actor that plays Dante sticks around for the full reveal of what happened to him. Excited to see Jason choke Shiloh. Want more screen time for Friz and their family drama. Hope Micheal gets his son back soon and names him something other than Wiley. Ecstatic over how the writers are finally waking up and having Kevin feel the full recompense of his decision. I can’t wait until the writers have Jason and his brother Drew get into some trouble together. The skill set these two have should be explored.… Read more »

The Dawn of Day storyline became a bore for me when Sam, Jason, and Sonny became involved.

I despise this DOD storyline and wish they would kill it already.

Well it’s Wednesday. I knew Willow would stay. Jason has his work cut out for him. How to get rid of Shilo, without killing him. I wasn’t quite sure what Jordan’s little grin was about at the end today. Almost looked like she had that perverbial canary for lunch. I just have to say that when I saw Franco’s new doo, the words that came out of mouth were very unlady like. I wonder if it was by choice, or does someone hate him?

Wish Jason would pop Shiloh’s head like a giant zit! I know, yuk,eew, and all that, but that’s what that creep is. Can’t wait till they get him.

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.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
