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.

GH’s Steve Burton, Laura Wright & Kelly Thiebaud Deliver The ‘Power Performances of the Week’

In a power play to show strength and solidarity against their enemies, a major move by longtime best friends, looks to shake up the canvas of General Hospital for some time to come, and within the framework of the story, three performers took the material they were given and broke our hearts throughout last week’s episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

Steve Burton (Jason) and Laura Wright (Carly) showed us the deep-inner conflict of their characters as after a remark by Ava (Maura West) about marriage being in-part a contract, but also part theater in the life of the mob, the two longtime besties come to a conclusion.

With the territory beginning to ramp up the violence again within the five families, Jason thinks if they got married it’s the best decision for the business with Sonny (Maurice Benard) gone.  He points out there is no going back from this. Then, Carly recalls their history, how they were once together, until she ultimately pushed him away, and Jason reminds her how she tests and tests things until they break, which is why her relationship with Sonny worked so well as a duo, and why with him it did not.  An emotional Carly thinks everyone will think she planned this given her history with Jason.  He assures her that all that is important is that the two of them know why they took this step.

Later in the week, Jason and Carly meet again, and it’s at that moment that Carly realizes she has to take off her wedding rings to Sonny. Jason says she doesn’t have to do that right now if she is not ready.  She bites the bullet and says that it has to be done.  As she removes her wedding rings, she breaks down in tears and notes how much she misses Sonny.

Throughout the week, there was another key player in all of this, Britt.  After admitting how much she is falling for Jason,  she is excited that Jason is coming by her room to see her at the Metro Court.  When he shows up, Britt knows something is up.  Jason tells Britt he is marrying Carly, and that it is the best move to protect the family and the business.  He is overcome delivering this information to Britt, just when things were starting between the two of them.  A devastated Britt tells Jason to get the hell out.  Jason tells her that she matters to him and that he will be there for her.  She cries as she tells him she doesn’t want his pity or support, and she should have known that Carly will always come first. Britt is completely blind-sided and shocked as Jason leaves.

Next, a heartbroken Britt visits Brad (Parry Shen) in Pentonville, where a stunned Brad learns that Britt slept with Jason, and she fills him on how they came together and how it’s now called-off between her and the hit man.  Brad is so sorry Jason hurt her, but then says, “Staying away from Jason probably will add years to her life expectancy.”  Sadly, Brad doesn’t know that Britt has the marker for Huntington’s Disease.

Throughout all of her scenes, Kelly Thiebaud played all the beats to perfection, and who knew we all would care so much for the “Britch”, but we do in the capable hands of this talented actress.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
