GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Photo: ABC

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Now that everyone is wise to her, I’m glad Esme is returning. Unfinished business should be fun. I like Nikolas squirming! Plus, she’s such a good actress, it’ll be a pleasure to see what comes next. Anything but this Elizabeth/Reiko tangle. Is poor Elizabeth going back to Shadybrook? They should give her a frequent flyer rate!

Soaphound…Yes, time for the reappearance of Esme. I still don’t think she’s the “hook.” The guy with the knives looks like a good suspect, and he’s for hire…but by whom? That doesn’t mean Esme can’t cause her own special kind of revenge in the meantime. As far as Elizabeth she’s never been one of my favorites. She’s always getting into storylines that I’m not into. I would like her to get back to her art. Not for her with Finn much.

The “guy with the knives” is way too tall to be the “hooker”. Also, he carries a bundle of sharp knives with him everywhere, so why would he need to steal a rusty old hook from the Q boathouse? I still have the odds of Esme being the hooker at 66.6% and Rory at 33.3%. That still leaves a 1% it could be somebody else, though the entire thing revolves around Trina, so that doesn’t make any other suspects likely. It’s been rumored elsewhere that Trina herself is the next scheduled target, but (much like her “bestie” Joss) might not… Read more »

It strikes me the intended victims (Ava, Joss, Diane) are all hated by Nelle, as well, but not necessarily the ones I’d assume she’d go after first. (Though I do agree the safe money is a Trina connection, with Esme and Rory in the lead.)

Satan

I don’t remember a whole lot of hatred between Nelle & Ava. To the contrary I remember them “bonding” over their mutual hatred of Carly for a while. Though I suppose Psycho Nelle might be upset that Ava DOESN’T seem to hate Carly anymore.

Satan…Who would suspect the knife man if he used a rusty old hook? But still his height is a good point. And motive. unless someone else hired him. Ms Wu? But why? Just playing guessing games with myself. However Esme is just too obvious for me. And Rory, I agree there’s more to his story than nice guy. Just don’t see him as the hook attacker either. So the mystery goes on.

We do think along the same lines, Satan. Esme first; Rory second—I’ve said so from the start. —-yet, that’s what TPTB want us to think. So, still up in the air somewhere. I’ve never seen Esme wear bracelets—-and, she’s not that stupid. I’m getting so frustrated—going back and forth in my head—- If it is Esme, her next target, as I said, is Trina (for whom I do not much care) and, of course, Joss. Would it be conceivable for Esme to be the cause of Spencer’s “headaches”? Sure it is—it’s a soap!! Oh, yeah—before I forget—Sonny is such a… Read more »

I think we are in the minority about Liz. I never cared for her goody two shoes thing. For a sweet little thing she never had a problem having men like Jason, Drew, etc in her bed.

rose
Guest

Violet…Not always goody two shoes. She keeps secrets. Remember when Jason came back, didn’t remember who he was and she didn’t tell Sam or Monica. Yet Nina is continually getting roasted for something similar. Or how Peter August supposedly got killed and frozen.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Liz probably gets a pass on the “Jake Doe” thing because by the time that story arc was over, Nikolas, Lucky, and even briefly Laura all knew that he was (supposedly) Jason before Spinelli’s “facial deconstruction app” revealed what he looked like before Ava ran over his face.

Irony here is that Ava was both partially responsible for creating the “Drew is Jason” myth by injuring him with her car, and ending it by being involved in Real Jason’s escape from Heiny’s Russian gulag.

She is indeed a good actress, Soaphound. My main conflict with the drawing of this character is that they made her one dimensionally bad. Instead of making her Ryan’s daughter, they should have kept her a realistic mean girl-the quintessential spoiled little rich girl. She could have been an Erica Kane or a Brenda Barrett. Instead, she’s an irredeemable sociopath. Interestingly enough, I thought she has more chemistry with Spencer than Trina does.

Gosh I hate that little viper, I’ll be so glad to get rid of her by any means, whether she turns out to be the hooker or not, just want her gone and I tend to agree, she really did have more chemestry with Spencer. I have not been able to take to the new Trina, so don’t care for any of the fellows with her, and especially now that she’s treating Curtis like he’s just insinuating himself into her life, it’s easy to see they are setting the stage for the big reveal that he’s her bio dad.

I agree with you, Gloria–this theme has become tedious. If nuTrina had some oomph, I think the storyline could be bearable—but, this girl,lacks spunk and that dynamic personality which is usually so second nature to any performer. She’s not very good, nor is she credible.

Theres a chance she may turn out to be Kevin’s daughter. It would be a big twist and maybe Dr. Collins could redeem his wretched child. Either way, I love the actress!

“Esme” is not completely irredeemable. She’s basically an orphan who has been left practically alone emotionally. Avery Pohl is fairly good at playing sympathetic as well. I hope they dont completely redeem the character. But I also dont want her written out. I’m hoping that later down the line “Esme” will be discovered to be Ava’s biological daughter. That would be quite the hoot and it would force the two of them finally at least get along lol. Their path to mother/daughter bonding would be hilarious to watch. And Avery Pohl Maura West are definitely up for the challenge to… Read more »

I agree with everything you said, Jill. NuTrina doesn’t have any chemistry with anyone—- This girl does not stand out. Even her friendship with Joss doesn’t seem authentic. Similarly, I don’t feel that mother/daughter connection between her and Portia. Regardless, Esme can be redeemed if, by a miracle, she is not “The Hook”—- Everything does point to her—-who else would want the bartender dead? Well—-what if the real “Hook” purposely killed this guy to frame Esme since she is the most logical suspect? I have so many thoughts running through my brain….. On the other hand, Rory, Ryan and Esme… Read more »

I really agree! Avery Pohl ( Esme) is one of the best younger actresses this show has seen in a long time. What she lacks perhaps in experience she really makes up for in tenacity. She really bites into all of her scenes and she has just the right about of intensity. And I love the way she always smiles and sneers at the camera . She really makes being bad so much to watch!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, Soaphound—as I’ve always maintained; regardless of Esme’s perfidy, Avery is an amazing young actress and beyond. It’s quite regrettable she’s a baddie; and as such, her reckoning needs to be the worst.
She is now a murderess.
And, you’re right again—-I can’t stand Finn and it seems that he makes poor Elizabeth even more neurotic.
Another mismatched couple? Austin and Maxie. No matter the role, Howarth is always stuck in freakish-limbo.

Celia
Guest

Call me crazy, Soaphound, but I love Esme—LOL—I mean, I love Avery’s acting. Esme is b-b-bad to the bone., But, man…I love watching her—she fascinates me!!
I’m dying to know who her mother is? Is she in PC? Does Esme even know who she is?
I wonder if Ryan is her bio father—I don’t know his history.
She is the spawn of Satan—So, my mind, as usual, is all over the place. Imagine if Esme’s mother is Ava, Nina or Heather???? All three were she-devils, no?

Celia

Soaphound, Esme is pregnant!! Are you surprised? Not so much, right? It is the best excuse for her to feel safe as long as Nik believes it.
But, the baby is Rory’s. That’s the surprise!!‍♀️

Oh Celia, so predictable. Apparently Nikolas has never met a condom he can’t ignore. Such a wimp! And now he’s locked her in the attic? He’s reading JANE EYRE again, eh? Maybe that’s one of those dusty books up there. But, I do LOVE the decor of that room…perfect for Halloween season. Actually it’s more appealing than Noah’s new “hot spot” on YR. On the plus side, Avery P. is tearing it up again with one terrific performance after another.

I’m sure he must have read “Jane Eyre” and “Wuthering Heights” ( EB) ’til his eyes bled. Nikolas has been looking crazed, as of late…. As far as a “Rosemary’s Baby” event, we need to ask Satan—what say you, Satan??

Aye Celia, for me Nikolas’ main turn-on is the pretty hair (I may have a mild version of trichophilia) and those full lips with the crooked smile. I saw Marcus years back on an episode of MAJOR CRIMES and found him so striking, I looked up the cast list on IMDB to get his name. I’m glad he’s got a steady gig even though I think the writers are really diminishing his character. But Chase/Josh, oh boy…I even watched his NETFLIX movie with his wife just to ogle him. I’m not usually so “mainstream” with good looks. For me, Jeremy… Read more »

I know the Italians, especially, have a hair fetish —-there are more songs written about a lover’s hair than any other foreign artist. Check out a really “oldie” by someone whose stage name was Little Tony, “Capelli Biondi “ ( capellini literally means “thin hair”) ——derives from the word, capelli which means hair. Anyway, I digress—I love longer hair on guys—-so much so, I forbade my husband cutting it too short. LOL—Elvis had the best… Read more »

One more item, Celia..your idea about Sharon hanging out a shingle to advertise her PSYCHOLOGIST FOR HIRE skills reminded me of where I’d seen that very thing done before …. when Bugs Bunny hung out an ESQUIRE sign over his rabbit hole. No insult to Sharon…I always have suscribed to the philosophy of Mr. Bunny. By the way, when Sally inevitably chooses Nick over Adam, I’ll be writing her off as well. Nick should be ashamed of himself.

I wish she would stay away. It’s ridiculous that she’s gotten away with so much and how stupid everyone is to see what she’s guilty of and don’t do anything to get her arrested. The writers are stupid themselves to write this storyline.

I am glad that Esme is coming back because she needs to pay for what she did. Hopefully, she will. There are a lot of loose ends with her storyline that have to be tied up. Also, I don’t think you are in the minority about Liz. I don’t like the character, I think she’s boring and I am not interested in any storyline with her in it. Also, Liz with Finn is even more boring!!

I want Esme to be the hook murderer – it makes the most sense, particularly if she is doing it for daddy dearest. I will be FURIOUS if it is Rory ): Just NO! ): I thought maybe Esme would be pregnant and they would do a “who’s the daddy?” storyline. I love Avery but I don’t love Esme and really do not see her as having long-term potential.

Rory is the best guess besides Esme. Maybe he wears a wig and make-up?
I think Esme may be telling the truth to Ryan–she’s not the Hook. I’m thinking TPTB could “reform” her —give her a brain tumor, LOL—-and she may stay on.
Imagine if Ava turns out to be her mother–can’t have her own daughter “hook” into her. LOL- hope to talk later and later……

Hi Celia—The reason I don’t believe it can be Esme is;
__ Avery Kristen Pohl has signed a 3-year contract with ABC’s General Hospital,..
They wouldn’t destroy her, not now–
I imagine she will be the horribly bad turn into a shiny angel..lol…. All cast members are solid so has to be Rory..
A 3 year contract the soap must have big plans for the character..
She is indeed a great addition to GH..
And—dump Cameron Mathison as Drew IIISSSHHHH..
he simply does not belong/fit-in GH, nope..
Take care, be happy–

Celia
Guest
Celia

Really, su? I wasn’t aware Avery was on contract—happy to hear that. So, my thinking of keeping her wasn’t far-fetched.
Yes, Rory is the outsider, thus, he needs to go.
Mathison? I’m with you.I guess I’m not the only one who just tolerates the guy.
So, let’s see…Carly has had her rounds with the Quartermaine brothers—but she’s not done—it’s Drew’s turn. Stay well, my friend!!

It’s the jingling that’s the puzzler..

Celia
Guest

Yes, SusieQ—I thought of Ryan, too—but, quickly dismissed the idea. …He’s too tall with a very masculine built–Rory is actually petit–more fitting. The jingling could be bracelets or a chain….

Hey Celia, this is more about Spencer than Esme. How hot does he look in prison overalls?! The mussed waterfall of hair, the cynical/rebel without a cause attitude, those great grimaces. Wow, he single-handedly makes up for the zero sex appeal of Drew, Austin Garter Belt (?), Cody, Finn, Sonny, and Michael. Heck, Spinelli is cuter than that lineup of dead weight. At least he’s funny. But Spencer/Nicholas Chavez is keeping my, um, living room nice and warm.

Shiloh & Whiny Heiny also had “3 year contracts”. Apparently those contracts always have some fine print where they can be terminated for “story purposes”. As good as the actress is, the character doesn’t really have any redemption possible if she’s the Hooker, and that seems to be about 99.9% certain after Thursday’s episode. They can’t try the idiotic “brain tumor” or “magic DVD” excuses again to attempt to undo what was clearly seen on screen. Characters can be “redeemed” early on if they’re popular enough and they haven’t done too much damage. Luke & Sonny being two prime examples… Read more »

Newer performers have 13-week options written into their contracts, at which point the show can cancel the contract for any reason (most vets have 26-week windows). They haven’t written Esme into a corner yet – but they’re getting close.

Since you mentioned Shiloh, I saw Coby McLaughlin on a plane this past week – quite handsome in person. Didn’t get a chance to talk to him.

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Courtesy/HarrisonWagnerIG

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.

Share your thoughts on the closing of the case on Harrison Wagner’s death, and send your continued condolences to Jack and Kristina via the comment section below.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

Photo: ABC

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Courtesy/ABC

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Courtesy/ABC

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.
