Chloe Lanier just slayed these last two weeks. There were two points of Chloe’s subtle evil performances that stand out so STRONGLY. One was when she completely manipulated Brad without missing a beat. She took his grief and disposed of it like yesterday’s bad bread. I think she had a gleam in her eye. I felt cold and a little dirty while watching. Brad is no saint but he got taken big time and his mistakes will have life altering ramifications for years. Then when Nelle was being interrogated by Jordan. I don’t know if this was written into the… Read more »

Mateo, you said it all. That moment when Nelle reached out to touch (curse?) Jordan came out of nowhere and nearly stopped my heart! Chloe just keeps getting better with each episode and/or machination. A truly original and brave body of performances.

If a person grabbed a cop like that in real life he/she wouldn’t have to worry about all the other charges against them. You don’t grab a cop, taunt him or her and get away with it. Big leap from reality in just that one moment.

She didn’t grab Jordan, she touched her to show her fangs. It’s not a crime to touch someone. She issued no threat and she was handcuffed so that doesn’t fly. And when would reality come into play here? It’s a soap for goodness sake. Half of what Nelle has done is beyond reason and reality. The touch was not about it being a crime, it was about showing the depth of Nelle’s obvious illness.

She DID grab Jordan. Just watched that scene again. She stuck her face in Jordan’s, told her her department had “blood on their hands” and grabbed her. Jordan pulled back and she grabbed her again. In all my years of watching GH and all the arrests no one has ever grabbed a cop. This is not a case of “it’s a soap.” That’s an obvious out when events like coming back from the dead or wearing someone else’s face come into play. Those scenes are obviously meant for us to suspend our disbelief. Grabbing a cop’s wrist and not receiving… Read more »

Rebecca, as well done and intense as this scene was, oddly enough, the one that had me rewind and watch again was when Jordan received the call on her cell as to Nelle’s whereabouts and then promptly left her phone on Dante’s desk before departing for the docks with the uniformed officer. All that fine writing and acting and I’m left muttering “you left your phone, dummy!” An otherwise great episode that could have been tighter—e.g. Michael, essentially calling an Uber to get his battered and bruised sister, Joss, to the hospital? It will be a nice twist if the… Read more »

Hey, Reed. Good catch on your part. Didn’t even notice Jordan leaving her phone. If I did, it’s lost in my memory bank as I try to grapple with Nelle grabbing Jordan’s arm. It’s funny how these inconsistencies (as in the case with the arm grab) or the probable unintentional leaving of the phone sometimes mess with our ability to suspend our disbelief than the actual fantastical things that we’re able to enjoy and get lost in! I was thinking about Joss’s kidney, too. Not sure the Corinthos fans can stand any more hits, literal or figurative, to the family.… Read more »

Hi Rebecca,
UR right that WITCH did GRAB Jordan by the hand/ wrist, and drip/drab commissioner did NOTHING yet again!!! I would have added assault to the pile of charges
against her.

Hi, Fanny. Thanks! Can’t see how anyone who watched that scene thought it was just a “touch.” Nelle was a witch, LOL, but I’m not a Carly fan so she was, as in The Wizard of Oz, the good witch to me! 😉

Always love your posts! I freakin’ love Nelle! I love the character, I love the actress. I love that she was able to bring Carly and Sonny to their knees!! Anyone who messes with those two gets high praise in my books!! She always made us feel something! When Josslynn kicked her in the stomach, it a pretty gruesome graphic scene considering Nelle had just given birth….and she looked so sad and hurt that Josslynn could do something like that to her! She made me feel sorry for her….this young tiny waif like thing, in a hospital robe, just gave… Read more »

I agree with you, Jovin. Nell has the soapy honor of being the one to make Carly pay. Not long enough in my opinion but something’s better than nothing. She’s gotten away with far too much for way too long. Unfortunately, being Carly, she’ll be back to her obnoxious self in no time. I didn’t, however, feel bad for Nell when Joss slammed her. Just a good fight scene that I would have enjoyed more if I liked Joss more. Used to like her but now they’re making her a Carly, Jr. and that just turned me off to the… Read more »

I love reading your posts Mateo – they are always interesting because you not only state your opinion but back it up with detailed examples from the show. Of course, it helps that I agree with everything you said! It was a great 2 weeks of GH and I too am hopeful this can continue.

Chloe was like a stick of dynamite. My gut feeling is that somehow, she’ll slip though fingers and get away just so the writers can bring her back if she ever decides she wants to return.

Love to see her an Dr. O back. Way better than killing them off. But if not Chloe hope the best for her in future endeavors. She showed her talent with GH beginning with the Fluke story.

Dispised her Character but she is awesome actress. Think some of it was too drawn out and now time to move on to others that need a good story line. Great Job Chloe! Good luck in your future !

Looking forward to seeing Nelle down here in Hell. Because there ain’t no way she’s getting out of Port Charles alive!

I think they’ll keep her alive. Probably (if the show’s still airing) they’ll have her come back for yet another psycho jaunt. Or. maybe Nell, Heather and Dr. O will become a girl band and perform at a future Nurse’s Ball.

No, Lucas is Tony’s son in every way that matters. And Tony is Frisco’s brother. He and Maxie grew up together. No one spent more time with Lucas growing up than Maxie and Georgie. They are cousins. And he’s the only on on-screen with the Jones name other than Maxie.

Yes, it will be two Emmy’s in a row, Chloe rocks the house! What a gem. IF we knew soaps were going to last I would root for this young girl to sign a twenty year contract at ABC but she is too talented and must strike Hollywood NOW! My thought here about Friday’s episode is this: THIS is how every Friday use to be on soaps, wild and unpredictable, leading you into Monday. Secondly, this little strawberry blonde, probably 100lbs soaking wet has reeked more havoc on the big bad mob don, Sonny Corinthos than ANY other tough guys… Read more »

She’s an Amazing actress! You can’t help but loving her as you hate her. That’s why she’s so great. Not many could pull off that roll like she has. Even while you’re wanting her to ‘get hers’, you’re wanting more of her.
I can’t wait to see where she goes from here. She’s way too good an actress to stay on daytime tv!

Chloe Lanier is hands down, the most talented actress in Daytime. She makes you hate Nelle and, on a dime, she can make you feel sorry for her. I hope she gets a second Emmy and I wish her well in her future endeavors. She has so much talent, she owes it to herself to branch out and see what opportunities are out there. I think she made the right choice to leave on a high note with her Daytime Emmy in hand.

Her last week on screen makes her a shoe-in for another Emmy next year.
Loved her exit… kicking & screaming bloody hell till the bitter end, CLASSIC.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Courtesy/ABC

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support. I’ve always said, that the fans of General Hospital are the greatest fans in the world and I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that.”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

Watch Wactor’s heartfelt message below.

So, where do you stand with the decision to kill off Brando? Glad the character is off the canvas, or sad to see him go? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
