GH Preview – Week of May 28, 2018

Photo Credit: JPI Studios GH: Will Drew Discover His True Past?

Coming up on General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) searches for his memories and decides that he wants Andre (Anthony Montgomery) to prepare to move ahead with the high-risk request to strip him of Jason’s (Steve Burton) memories so that he can retrieve his own.  Will Drew be able to get his life back?

Then, though Carly (Laura Wright) did not intentionally push Nelle (Chloe Lanier) down the stairs, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) convinces her that her best chance at freedom is to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.  As a result, Carly expects to be sent to a mental institution rather than prison, but what will happen? Here are more teasers for next week’s General Hospital.

Monday, May 28

An encore presentation for Memorial Day.  Episode 14035. Original air date: 4/13/18

So, do you hope Drew regains his memories once and for all?  Has Carly got herself in so much hot water that the only place for her to go is straight into a mental institution when she’s perfectly fine?  Share your thoughts on the most intriguing storylines on General Hospital via the comment section below.

Nelle, ehh- I’ve seen much better villainess characters Nel is a weak one..hoohummm

Ava is finally becoming interesting, again..
Ava is never ever to be a saint, she is nasty and I love her nastiness!
good to have the real Ava back.

No worries- Carly will regain he badazz crown and take Nel down, but not Ava it will be a draw.
umm Ava holds Carly’s freedom, the blanket ..

Yes I want Drew to get his memories back and start a new life without Sam…Sam and Jason are soul mates!! GH needs to reunite JaSam and give JaSam back the life that was taken from them 5 yrs ago! #JaSamReunion2018

Drew will discover Kim isnt Oliver’s mom…his mom is Kim’s sister-a plot they done with Nathan, Lisel and Maddie!…also, Kiki’s affair with her mother Ava’s boyfriend Griffen is just a reversal of Ava’s affair with Kiki’s boyfriend Morgan…why redo plots just done a short time ago???-and ReRon isnt event the writer!!!!…this is why i rarely watch anymore and GH has slumped to fourth place!!!

Also…Anna’s story is plot driven…when Faison was on long before there was no hints whatsoever they had slept together and had a child…im sure he would had given a slight hint to that…sorry but this plot sinks the ship along with Genie’s departure and the other two redone plots i mentioned above!!!

Faison never knew they slept together and had no idea Anna was his mother.

Please give Drew his memories back . Can’t wait for Nelle to be caught in her web of deceit. I think Michael is suspicious and that’s why he is working from home.

I am – so over – Michael… simply the dullest of them all. don’t you just hate it.. when… the beacon of morality.. always has to chime in to either of his parents… “can I just have a moment alone” let’s all upchuck .. when Carly… says to Michael for the millionth time.. you are the fairest person I know

Nelle needs to go. I think Michael believes Carly and he will try to set up Nelle. The easiest way is for her to die in childbirth

Of course, Drew will regain his memories, the whole of the story is to give Drew his old life back.
And-
Valentin is the most feared of all the Cassidines, the devil in disguise!
The writers have turned Valentin into a whimp, a beggar grovelling for love, a weakling..
Shape it up writers– he/Valentin is the badass of the badest of them all.
Shame on the – insert your favorite swear word- writers!!
Valentin is a CASSIDINE! not a sniveler .

Carly/Lauren most likely will be on vacation during her lock-up??
No matter the game Carly will indeed win the battle..

Have you youngsters ever heard of the album Frampton Comes Alive? Because I say, Billy Miller Comes Alive as Drew after discarding the heavy Jason hair coat and after discarding ole mumbling and depressing Sam. Really, his twinkle, his sparkle seems to be coming back. And here’s a thing I noticed last Friday–Drew and Maxie. Why aren’t they a thing? These two are just bubbling over with charismatic effervescence and when they are in scenes together, the glare of that effervescence is indisputable. Honestly, forget Henny Penny! Henrik is a boring loser and with him, the sky really is falling.… Read more »

Oh, Harry, FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE was THE album of my senior year on high school and I’m thrilled with a “sans Sam” future for Drew…and us. The Great Billy Miller is back with a vengeance while Sam & Jason continue drowning in Sonny/Carly and mob/other crap. Drew is making friends, bonding with his son (how cute are they?) and facing a life without the mob or other albatrosses (Sam). Billy’s back and I couldn’t be happier!

I have NEVER been this irate. – two things – 1. Wes Ramsey’ Peter/Heinrick making deals… with both Drew and Sam. tit for tat… he has the flashdrive… from the ornament that Andre gave to Anna.. and she gave to charity. ??? how Heinrick tracked it down.. and again has in his clutches. it was disgust to watch. get him out of jail and Drew has his memories back. as Drew tells him he’s known since January. could have just given it to him. no dice. as Drew walks out. GOOD MAN. same w/Sam. the only reason he’s alive… blah… Read more »

I’m just so irate over Wes Ramsey/Parking Lot Pete and the overtaking of our beloved show. I can’t watch the show. Wes Ramsey cannot act and he is creepy (lack of a better term). He makes me uncomfortable and it’s not the character that he is playing. It’s his Shakespearean fake acting and leering. He’s just dreadful. He’s on every day and is involved with every character. So many long-time viewers are tuning out because of him (and other reasons). Many twitter followers agree with my opinion, and yours, above.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

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.
