GH’s Kirsten Storms, Michelle Stafford & Dominic Zamprogna Respond To Fans Heartfelt Kudos On Their Performances Following Nathan’s Death!

If you caught Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed another tearjerker as Nathan’s loved ones were sent reeling from his sudden death, thus ending the run of Ryan Paevey.

In emotionally riveting scenes, Kirsten Storms delivered one of the best performances of her career as the grieving wife with all the “Maxi-isms” and more that make us love Storms portrayal and care so deeply for the character of Maxie. Kirsten thanked her fans on Twitter for their support and for the accolades on her performance.

Storms related: THANK YOU so much for all the Twitter love @GeneralHospital fans! This is a sad (& amazingly written) story we are telling. I feel blessed to have been given the challenge to portray it. I appreciate all of your kind words on my work  You guys are why we do it! Xoxo

In another heartbreaking performance, Michelle Stafford reminded all of us of that unbreakable bond between siblings, and in this case a brother and a sister with her gut-wrenching work as the grieving sister.  Viewers were extremely moved by Stafford’s work, and she responded.

Michelle Stafford shared: Your love is overwhelming!! Thank you! When I hear things like “I had to call my brother and tell him I loved him after watching that” I am reminded of why I do this. I really love you guys #GH

Then, there was the heart-wrenching work of Dominic Zamprogna who as Dante lost his buddy, his brother, if you will, and who is rocked to the core by Nathan’s passing.  Dominic also sent love to the fans for their outpouring of support for his performances.

Zamprogna expressed: Want to thank u all for the love these past 2 days. Great to dig in, sorry it meant the end of Nathan and working w/ my pal @RyanPaevey.

What did you think of the performances by all-involved on yesterday’s GH, were Nathan’s loved ones tried to cope from the shock of his passing? Comment below.

Thank all of you, Maxie, Nina and Dom, for your reply. Yesterday I held it together quite well, but after reading your comments, the tears showed up. I can’t imagine how hard it was to wring those emotions out of yourselves. The show comes on in half an hour here, and I hope my hubby isn’t in the room, cause i might just bawl again. All of you are fantastic actors and actresses. We love you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

So what’s next? Kevin/Ryan twin swap? Is that’s why Laura was written off? Dr. Bench teaming up with Heinrik?

Who’s holding Nathan and Faison?

HINT : her first name is Lisel

NoraE
NoraE

You beat me to it! Now who is Peter’s mama? Or better yet, who is Anna’s child with Faison? Think it’s Little Nelle, or maybe Kim, or heaven forbid, the radical priest. Nelle is pretty diabolical and Kim is pretty good at being covert and she and Oscar have dark hair like Anna . It can’t be Peter, because Faison knew about Peter and his horrible mother, this according to Leisel, but he was cruel and ignored him. Most of his life. Anna said ‘their child’ was a secret. She didn’t say son.

Give us your best guess. I’m betting the writers haven’t sorted it all out yet, but I think you’re on the right track. Those fine actors have made us all cry tears for naught and we’ll be taking the hooks out of our mouths soon. In the meantime, ain’t we got fun again with GH?!

NoraE
NoraE

Should have said, Peter couldn’t be Anna’s son, if Peter and Heinrik are one and the same”.

Good writers earn their paychecks, don’t they? I think I’m better at imitating Carly and Jordan’s noisy stomp and drag walks than crystal ball gazing plot llines.

WSB has Nathan and Faison is dead! Kevin has Fiason’s brain.

Storms and Zamprogna knocked it out of the park. Stafford was good in her subdued scenes, but a little too much while yelling outside of Faison’s room.

Kristina Wagner said so much with her facial expressions. The Scorpio family hug was touching.

The Dante/Liesl scene was really poignant. Didn’t notice anyone offering her any comfort.

Stafford is a scene monger and Lisel is a murderer! She deserves nothing!

Patrick

it’s “horror” how sad, tragic, and just plain out not necessary.

yet, it was so played out excellently. this may be on the production value for Frank Valentini

YET I KNOW, THIS CUT SO MUCH ACROSS the board for the audience . just seared the heart strings

i’m left hanging…

I’ve never before seen Kirsten Storms act like a fully mature woman. in pain, in agony, the hurt snowballing… as she “holds” their baby. riveting on her part.

sister Nina : her best moment… when she was flailing about outside of Faison hosp. room… as she guttural screamed out. you could feel the reverberation. it was so nice to see tender scenes with her and Valentin.

Mom Leisl : she cried like it was nobodies business… we still haven’t seen any time out for us to watch just her yet… so that’s a bombshell still aflame.

it was gut wrenching watching Maxie and Leisl @the very bed Nathan Lay and it was all fixed up cleaned out. GONE

Dante: wow it was a very touching scene… when Amy was about to cover him… and Dante said: “i’ll do that ” it took my breath away… from one cop to another as he bid adeu to his partner.

alas, when Maxie was going thru Nathan personal affects…. she slipped his wedding ring on… and the sonogram pic of the baby… with blood splatter…

how heartbreaking is that

Soaphound

You summed it up perfectly, Patrick. For me, Michelle’s release was exactly what I needed to relate to. What a great showcase for these actors.

Shay

Nina’s “release” made me wish that Valentin would have tossed her off the roof of GH and been done with her already! You just know this character will be milking this tragedy for as long as she possibly can…anything to have a chance to over-emote and steal the limelight!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Absolutely Patrick and Soaphound…all were magnificent; Michelle completely floored me (no pun intended) when Nina collapsed outside Faison’s room. Michelle as Nina has struck the perfect chord…the epitome of grief…the containment of shock/disbelief, inward pain and then bam! The crushing devastation that comes to the surface.

If anyone doubted this character’s sanity…losing her brother should prove just how far she’s come. Amazing portrayal of loss.

@Rebecca – I especially loved Michelle’s performance, too!
I loved all of the performances.

Outstanding performances by everyone. You could just feel Maxie’s pain. She is all alone and pregnant. It is a lesson to always tell the ones you love that you love them because you never know. Now, when will Dominic get a good story? The man always delivers. Tired of Lulu getting all the attention.

Dena

Absolutely soul crushing acting.

They truly were gut wrenching performances by all; even right down to the last shot of the day when Mac hugged Maxie and a tear rolled down his cheek.

Ricky

All of the actors were great. I could feel the pain of Kristen & Michelle. But Dominic’s performance left me speechless. He lost his friend, work partner and it did seem like they were brothers. They all need to be nominated for their performances. This episode needs to be one of the ones submitted as a reel for next years Emmys. Ryan will be missed. GH delivered something special. This is what soaps are all about. Great acting and writing. Keep up the great work.

Lisa

Such tour de force performances by all.
I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed.

Anne

Kirsten’s performance–simply amazing. She hit all the high and low notes just right and true.

Watching the two shows of Nathan’ death, I wondered again why daytime drama has declined. Sure the storylines are over-the-top and cliched,, but the acting is superb. And the stories are about relationships, so essential, and life choices. This is especially hard to swallow when you see the cheap TV, cheap not just in production costs, that replaced so many soaps.

Bravo to all the actors who excelled in these episodes.

Fanny

Heart wrenching performances all around!!!

conniemac

Both the acting and the writing were beyond brilliant. It still chokes me up when I see the pictures on instagram. And don’t forget Kathleen Gati who was heart wrenching also.

I am curious to see the interaction between Lulu and Maxie. I totally agree with Leisl that Lulu is the one who set the whole thing in motion and for selfish reasons to boot.

Sandy J.

Every single actor in Nathan’s story gave incredible performances. I won’t single anyone out as each deserves her and his own accolades.

But the actor whose character I’ve never liked (and likely wasn’t supposed to), Kathleen Gati, gave such a heartbreaking performance that it was the first time that Liesl Obrecht seemed human to me.

I think where the show went a little sideways was not allowing the characters of Nina and Liesl to say their goodbyes to Nathan in his hospital room after Maxie left. But I’m guessing the actors will be given that opportunity during the funeral.

Michael, I totally agree with your assessment of Kristen Storms’ performance; it was the best I’ve ever seen her and she’s always done a great job.

I hope we’ll see Spinelli and young Georgie at Nathan’s funeral, as they deserve to be there to support Maxie and the rest of the Jones/Scorpio family.

Episodes like those broadcast on January 30 and 31 are the reason I watch and love soaps; everyone brings their best performances and we go right along for the ride. This particular death is the one that, for me, is closest in having broken my heart to the one in which B.J. Jones died and her heart donated to Maxie. I will never forget that one – and Brad Maule, Jackie Zeman and Kristina Wagner’s performances – till my own last day.

May each of the principle actors in this week’s ‘Nathan’s death’ episodes win Emmy awards next year. And may the ceremony be broadcast or live-streamed so that I can watch it.

Hi Sandy J.

I thought of that, too. Wondered why they didn’t have Dr. O and Nina go in to say goodbye…ugh. so completely sad. It really was so well done and too heartbreaking. So real…shedding tears as if Nathan were real. Have to shake off the loss.

Michelle Stafford‏/ Nina …BRAVA!

Kathleen Gati/Liesl …BRAVA!

Anders Hove/Cesar Faison …BRAVO!

Those 3 .. they were outstanding. None better than those 3.
The others were good but not great in comparison to 3 above.

I never want Anders/Faison to leave. He is spellbinding!

Nathans death was done well ((I was staring at his closed eyes waiting for movement, there was none/ hard to do)

Lulu, if I were writing, would be put her on death row..
I hope she greatly suffers.. but the writers won’t go there, sigh.

Now, I’m looking forward to Andrew and Heinrick ..

Lulu had the best of intentions whether being ambitious or not. Let us not forget Peter The one who pushed her to go big with the story becuae had his own agenda and a nefarious one at that.

Steve
Steve

Actually., let us all forget Peter and pretend he never came in from the parking lot. There’s no logical way Anna “Super Spy” Devane would ever have let a homicidal maniac raise her child.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Lulu is going to suffer unfortunately. She’ll live with that guilt probably the rest of her life…who knows how long it’ll take Maxi to forgive her, if at all, Dante, though loving and supportive warned her not to do the story…

I think she was wrong to pursue it too. She knew how dangerous he was, she knew his history. Anna and Robert had been after him for years; he tortured and killed many. Yet she pushed to do the story as a “follow-up” piece because covering a cat show (I would have LOVED to cover a cat show! ;)) wasn’t big enough for her.

She didn’t have evil intent. But she knew Faison would come after Nathan possibly putting him and Maxi and the baby at risk. She exposed a secret that Dr. O had kept all these years because SHE knew how dangerous Faison was…

It’s s soap so perhaps all will be forgiven shortly. The drama and the more realistic way would be for Lulu to go through emotional hell. Not because I’d wish it for her…nothing she did was malicious and she loved Nathan, too. But in real life I think it would be difficult for those who loved Nathan to not think how it was her idea in the first place and how she forged ahead even after being warned by Dante. Even Peter/Heinrich turned her down at first telling her it would be too dangerous; either he meant it and didn’t want to put her in further harms way or he knew she’d take the challenge. Point is, she took the challenge and gambled with her friends lives. Nathan agreed because he wanted to protect his wife and unborn child but didn’t really understand the scope of Faison’s madness; Lulu did. Maxi, Dante, Anna, Olbrecht did. Lulu should have, too.

Harry
Harry

Rebeeca, can you believe that I agree with your every word here. My GH world is turning upside down. Right now I cannot stand Lulu but kind of like Nina. I recall the first thing Lulu thought of upon hearing that Faison was Nathan’s father, was how to use this as a ground breaking news story which would propel her spanking new journalism career. Nary a thought of how this would impact her best friend and her family, she had self-serving stars flickering in her eyes. And Maxie called her on it right then and there. You can tell by Dante’s expression that he also blames his wife for not only kicking the rattlesnake, but for giving the rattlesnake directions to the victims habitat. Lulu, daughter of Luke Spencer, should have known better.
And well, Nina? You know how much this pains me to admit this, but when she stops with the scene chewing and lets the emotional tenor speak for itself, she is powerful. I don’t want to be one of those people who stubbornly clings to a perception of things when one’s ears and eyes tell one otherwise, but Stafford was damn good yesterday consoling Maxie. I can only hope she learns how much better she is when she is not posturing, shrieking and lip chewing.

rebecca1
rebecca1

I just got off the floor, Harry. I’m afraid I fainted when you said you agreed with EVERY WORD I SAID! LOL..hahahaha…

I love Nina. Always have been a staunch supporter of hers…from her nervous breakdown days (she played cray-cray so well!) through her evolution to the sophisticated, fiercely loyal, loving wife, sister, step-mom she’s become. I thought all of her scenes through Nathan’s death were stupendous. Subdued to uncontrolled devastation.

I do commend you, though on your ability to look beyond your first (okay 1000th) impression of Nina to admit you like her, you really, really like her. (okay, maybe you don’t really, really but the Sally Field thing was too hard to resist.)

🙂

Harry
Harry

Rebecca, I didn’t meant to startle you! I should have warned you.
But don’t worry, I will probably go back to despising Nina again,the earth will have gravity, the sky will be blue and people will continue to annoy me in the grocery store by talking too loudly on speaker phone.
But she was good, I just have to hand it to her.

I cried so much it was ridiculous. They all did magnificent work but I think Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford knocked it out of the park. Great job to all of you.

This was another day to get choked up. Dominic as Dante had me so close to tears with what he was saying to Nathan’s lifeless body. This was another episode that has much of the cast with some excellent material for an Emmy reel if the performances today are eligible. i know they wouldn’t be for this year but hopefully what these actors have done over the last 2 days will be. There was a ton of energy that came from everyone in this storyline.

rose

The last few days on GH is what soap fans live for…real genuine connection and emotion surrounding the Nathan story, and superb acting my all that made it happen. Where do you start…of course Maxie…never seen her better. And then Nina and Liesl were incredibly heartfelt. Even Dante stepped up with a more subtle, effective performance than we are used to seeing from him. And Anna throughout, especially the scenes with Anna and Faison. As well as Heinrich’s final words to Faison. Wow! As for Lulu, I still don’t think she gets it. I can always do without Sonny being involved, but Anna’s steely words to him as she left his place about butting out of finding Heinrich (something like “you don’t want to make me your enemy”) should even give him pause. Can’t forget Nathan…it must be hard just lying there as an actor while all of this drama is going on around you.

Refreshing and humble response by Zamprogna–he seems like a real standup fellow–not infected with a giant ego–just a hardworking actor. Bravo for THAT!

Harry
Harry

Thank you, Nancy. I actually found Dante’s reaction to be the saddest one. Humility and subtlety go a long way for me.
I think he’s another under utilized resource.
Seems they employ the same idea with Dante that they do with Kevin. The idea that one character cannot have their own story when their spouse has their own. Laura had to be shipped out so Kevin could have his story and right now, Lulu is the one having a big story as the investigative journalist from Munchkin City.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

i also want to respond to the really ugly rumors about what TPTB are attempting or planning to do to Kevin’s character. Instead of sending him off to join Laura, rumor is that he may have the brain/memories of his unbalanced brother Ryan–another “swap” prior to Jason and his twin.
Ugly! Ugly, if true. Seems like yet another mean-spirited slap at Genie Francis. Haven’t they tormented poor Genie enough?

Steve
Steve

To finally give Kevin an independent storyline 2 weeks after Genie leaves? Seems strange unless Jon Lindstrom told them he wants out. Even if he did, Kevin could have just moved to Europe with Laura..

If Kevin does have Ryan’s memories, to be accurate he’ll have to be obsessed with Felicia.

Please don’t let this be yet another attempt to redeem Franco.

rose
rose

Laura and Kevin had the potential for great stories on GH. What do writers do? Send Laura away in more ways than one, much to the upset of fans. And now they are having Kevin resurrect his sicko brother?

And what is it with GH and brothers as of late…Jason/Drew, Nathan/Heinrich, and now Kevin and his brother? And so many with some degree of unstable/mental problems on GH to drive a story, starting with Laura during Luke days. Others Heather, Franco, Kevin’s brother, Sonny, Morgan, Nina. And now “lovely” Carly is using mental as a weapon against Nelle.

One would hope that fans response to the last several Nathan days, and Laura and Kevin before her leaving would encourage tptb to more creative, relationship writing for GH.

Reed
Reed

Nancy, hadn’t heard that one yet. Jon Lindstrom is such a fine actor, I look forward to seeing anything they give him. As sad as we all are to see Nathan’s character leave the canvas, nobody can dispute the superior story and performances we gained from it. Some have already suggested you’d have to go back to 1994 (with some of these same actors), the BJ heart donation story, for anything as powerful as what we were treated to this week. As long as the writing remains this good and they continue to make use of the show’s history, I’m good with it.

History! History! History! su0000 didn’t know Sonny’s father was already an established character, but we did. And while the character of Dr. Andre Maddox and his portrayer Anthony Montgomery were a strong addition to the cast, when the “help wanted” sign goes out, longtime fans would prefer to see the show draw from its rich history. Maybe we would have had Dr. Collins back sooner, or perhaps Tom Hardy? That’s what makes it difficult to warmup to characters like Dr. Bensch, when we could have just as easily had Dr. Jeff Webber inserted, strengthening so many ties and furthering existing stories. I can already see Chris Van Etten’s influence on stories, so I think he’ll continue to champion the cause…provided we can keep Frank in his lane and out of parking lots.

Shay
Shay

If this is true, Nancy, then GH really is going off the deep end. Just seeing Kevin (or is it Ryan?) lovingly clutching Faison’s “brain in a jar” was too weird for words. I wasn’t even pleased with the notion of Dr. Collins studying Franco because I believed it was simply another lame attempt at legitimizing RoHo’s clown into what passes for a normal human being, but if we’re headed down this perverse path to where Laura was unknowingy married to some sort of secret monster, then that is an ultimate slam at Genie Francis! (As if her life with Luke—then Scotty—were not enough indignity for one woman….we finally thought that the third time was a charm for the beloved Laura and now this preposterous nightmare?) On the other hand, if Kevin is becoming unhinged, harboring an evil alter ego or has been replaced by his “dead” brother, this storyline could have had immense dramatic possibilities for Genie and her character, so to ship her off to Paris now makes even less sense than before. Quite frankly, the entire scenario sounds like pure insanity.

Harry
Harry

Love what you wrote here, Shay, I couldn’t agree with you more.
Yes indeed, Kevin morphing into his dead brother should indeed involve Laura!!

Harry
Harry

Nancy, I actually love this rumor. What I don’t understand is why would they have to ship off Laura so Kevin can have a front burner storyline?
Can’t Kevin play the supporting husband while presenting us with an intriguing story at the same time? Jon Lindstrom is damned talented, an under utilized resource and he can certainly multitask.
Ryan was a fascinating psychological study and JL played him brilliantly. I think he is far more riveting of a psycho than Franco is (I am so tired of Franco right now). I remember back when Ryan was obsessed with Felicia and he intercepted a note Mac had sent to her. Ryan takes the note, crumbles it up, puts it in his mouth and starts chewing it up with an eerie smile on his face. I read later in an interview with JL that this was him ad libbing, it was not in the script.
But why oh why can’t Laura run for mayor and be involved in the Ryan/Kevin story? Like JL, GF can certainly multitask and juggle two stories at the same time. If they really got rid of Laura so Kevin can tackle this psycho twin switch story, then that reflects limited and linear thinking–one thing should NOT negate the other!

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Harry, I wholeheartedly agree re JL–marvelous and studied–IF Genie was indeed in the story–how intriguing that would be. But, alas, “limited and linear thinking.”

Harry
Harry

Nancy, why is it Laura was allowed to have adventures with Luke but not allowed to have adventures with Kevin?
I think the writers’ and the EP’s vision is rather myopic?

I thought all the actors were absolutely terrific. Definite Emmy material all the way around. I loved the performances as much as I hated that Nathan is gone. I think it will be very hard to fill the shoes of the character that was a wonderful brother,, sexy, and caring husband, loyal buddy, member of the police force, great friend, etc. The charactor had a warm relationship with most of the core characters and some characters such as Amy who is not a core character. I think the acting was great, but … besides being so sad the character is gone and that Ryan Paevy willl no longer be on GH I think they should have figured out how to recast instead of doing this. nathan could have gone off for further training by the FBI, CIA, WSB, what have you, gone undercover, witness protection, whatever, and come back as another actor. “The character of Nathan is now being played by…” It would be so hard to replace him, but this has been done so many times before. The character made Leisl more human. All that said, thank you, Ryan Paevy for making me smile at your handsome face and being such a wonderful actor. I wish you all the luck in the world. Thank you to each and every actor on yesterday’s episode who was reacting to their loss of their wonderful husband, brother, son, buddy, etc.

EMMY WINNING PERFORMANCES BY ALL IN THIS STORYLINE……WILL MISS NATHAN…..

Kirsten Storms did an amazing job with this material. I enjoyed seeing her act in a different capacity, other than, well, “Maxie.” I think the sonogram photo with the blood smear was a tad too much, though. Given the nature of the material, the high emotional content, I think this was just…eh. Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford also gave amazing, heart felt performances this week-kudos. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of the storyline-it’s too far fetched for me (brain mapping/swapping, memories saved on a hard drive, etc). I’m also not a fan of “Parking Lot Pete” driving a major storyline and having ties to legacy characters-no thanks. I would rather see the Quartermaine Family.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Unfortunately, there’s really not many left in the Q family. Alan, Tracy, Lila, Emily, AJ, Alice!…they’re all gone. There isn’t any way to resurrect this family as it once was. And that’s sad but just like real life. People die (as some of these actors have…others alive but died in story) so…

Though I’m still hoping there’ll be ANOTHER go at AJ turning up alive (though I doubt it), I love that we’re seeing Ned and Monica. And unless someone bangs Jason’s head for the 40th time I don’t see him returning to the Quartermaine fold.

So, no matter if Ned and Olivia live in the mansion, it’s never going to be the same. The only Quartermaine “feel” I get is when I see Ned and Monica…

dmr and Rebecca1..Agree about Kristen, Nina and Kathleen. Great performances. And give Nathan his due on his exit. Not easy to lie still with all the drama going on around him, plus appearing in the extra dreams sequences of Maxie and Nina. Also am appreciating Pete/Heinrich. Like the Q’s and Spencers the writers are going to have to fill the family legacy coffers if they didn’t have enough kids, or life just passes them by. As Rebecca said, “just like real life,” and one of the reasons I find obits in the news anymore, from the young flu victims to more recognizable names, really sad. One of the other reasons it was too bad tptb didn’t continue with Laura and Kevin as part of a newer family legacy generation.

Hey rose…

I’m not counting Genie out yet. I think the backlash may just find her coming back sooner than later. I am interested, though, in seeing where they take Kevin. I’m open to the crazy stories GH sometimes turns to…the show’s always been that way so if Kevin winds up doing some weird brain game stuff, LOL, I’ll go with the flow.

You are now a part of the Rebecca/Reed/Rose team! I think we’re the ONLY three who like Peter/Heinrich!

@NoraE.
Hello, Nora,
Forgive me, but I could not resist the temptation of answering……it will be sporadic….when I simply cannot help myself….
Since the first day Griffin graced us with his beautiful presence, I thought there was something mystifying about his past….
I doubt his paternity….Anna’s son? Nathan’s brother? Peter may also be Anna’s…..Anna and her twin Alex have a devastating past….reared by their evil aunt Charlotte (AMC)…..
Faison may have given Peter to her to rear……or Anna who was “not herself’, mentally gave birth to Peter and Charlotte reared him.
I, also, intimated that little Charlotte was aunt Charlotte’s granddaughter….they are all enmeshed in this, including Valentin. ( Charlotte’s) son……if I am wrong, I will eat my non-existent hat??

NoraE
NoraE

Celia, you may have very well cracked the case! I did not know that Valentin’s mother was Charlotte, for whom little Charlote was named, no doubt. I am not verty familiar with AMC history, although I know the sories are entwined. If Anna’s baby was given to her to raise, then Valentin would certainly know who was who! Didn’t Faison say something about the Cassadines holding the key to it all?

The lock of hair will sort it all out. At last, a GH mystery with more twists and turns than the tunnels of Windemere. Don’t eat your hat–turn it around as a rally cap for GH writers!

Celia
Celia

Hi, Nora,
Thanks for the heads-up…..Valentin, as Charlotte’s son, is only a supposition, on my part. It is not known; only conjecture……it is just that when little Charlotte came to PC, and since Valentin and Anna knew each other in their past lives….and the fact that we don’t know who Valentin’s mother is??….I saw an ‘opening’…..LOL, this may all be in my head….fallacious.
Ok, I won’t eat my hat…..LOL…..I looove your enthusiasm, my friend.

General Hospital

GH Preview – Week of June 25, 2018

This week on General Hospital, after a rather unsettling sound is heard from another cell at Ferncliff, who could be in there?

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
