GH's Nancy Lee Grahn On The State Of Julexis: "I Say Take The Ride"

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Last week on Friday’s General Hospital cliffhanger, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was arrested for the murder of Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), not her mobster hubby, Julian (William deVry).  That sets the stage for more confrontation and tension for the couple known by its adoring fan base as “Julexis”.

Nancy Lee Grahn spoke with TV Insider to give her take on the state of affairs between Alexis and Julian, which has provided some very meaty scenes for both Grahn and deVry.

When asked if viewers should be optimistic that Julexis could even pull through all of this betrayal, deception, and murder, Nancy teased: “I say take the ride. I say with optimism that the story is not over yet.”

As far as if Alexis will eventually just accept Julian, murderer and mobster, Nancy added: “Yes, to pull the rug out from under Julexis is a very risky move.  But no risk, no gain. And you can’t say this isn’t interesting.  The next few weeks are wild. We’re going places I never would have imagined.”

So, do you hope Julexis continues to live on … or, do you want Alexis to dump the guy and mean it, and not turn back? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

With what Julian’s been up to lately, I’ve quickly grown to dislike him. For a ma to think his wife should stand trial for a murder they both know he committed is clearly pitiful. No way should she do anything but move on from him. What I do like is that Sonny seems to be stepping up with concern for Alexis after he wrote her off a couple of weeks ago. If he helps her out, it shows some character, unlike Julian. How can any of the kids be ok with what’s going on? This will cause more of a… Read more »

I know… right ?

it’s a little long in the tooth… “here we go again” as NLG’ Alexis

is torn by her virtue
is torn by her wanton ways

Julian is your lucky keep… to keep your toes curling

Lol, Patrick….as usual; your words deliver, impress and take. Let me tell you, the story ‘ain’t’ so long in the tooth as the protagonist. I do not know how this couple can be salvaged. Is Julian’s halo being polished as we speak? Yup; it will probably be done….that’ll be so disappointing for some of us; but so welcoming for others. Nancy sounds as if she knows they eill be getting back together; after I re-read her comments. She intimates that this ‘mise en scene’ is simply to create drama. We should have expected. It is a soap….goes around in circles… Read more »

I never bought them as a couple so it’s not a great loss to me. I do think NLG is pulling some really amazing performances. Alexis looks absolutely devastated. What I HATE the most about this story line is it affords little Sonny to march around acting all holier than thou and sanctimonious. Yes, Julian killed Duke and later killed Carlos and that was horrible. However, let us face it–both men were involved in the mob and there is a certain amount of risk involved with this career choice. I loved Duke–I know he was trying to leave the criminal… Read more »

Jim yes, he did, but suddenly he’s acting like he’s a lawful citizen.

I’ve never .. once… till Julian… seen a relationship… last

Eddie Haskell? Harry, once again, you slay me (and you nailed it)! If only he had half of Eddie Haskell’s smarmy charm, though! It points out what I’ve been saying for a while now: characters like Ava and Julian (and Franco) exist to prop Sonny. If you’re going to have a mobster as the central character of the show, you have to have people around who are even worse than he is–or at least equally repellent–in order to make it work. So the main reason, I argue, that we have the (warped, sick) canvas we have is because of the… Read more »

I’m with you, Harry. “Not a great loss to me.”
Too bad that NLG has to do her great emoting on a storyline that we don’t care about. Aggrandizing mobsters (and their molls) NEVER elevates the show–in fact, it just sinks it to a new low. 🙁

I agree, Jimmmy. I always believed this was the feeling of a schoolgirl’s lost love. I don’t know if Alexis really loves Julian, in the true sense of the word. There is lust, definitely….it is healthy in a marriage/relationship, but, it was ridiculously overdone, in my opinion. Nonetheless, lust is so much more intense when there’s REAL love. I think Alexis thinks she loves Julian. I also think she feels like a fool as she did all those years ago in the backseat of a car doing it with a stranger. I am really starting to appreciate Nancy. She is… Read more »

@Jimh(leave it ti beaver).
Hi, Jimmy,
You know, I have had ideas about ‘Julianina’ (COOL name…LOL) myself. I think we also talked about ( I do not recall with whom) Nina finally getting pregnant by Tomcat Julian, albeit Sonny could do the job, as well, as randy and fertile as they both are, LOL.
But, I hope not. I know you are not too fond of Nina, as so many others, Jimmy. But, I love Nina/Michelle.
The possibility is definitely there.

I really love/loved Alexis and Julian together ❤️

I have to say though, I don’t like this storyline at ALL. I loved how he changed for her, how he looked at her and loved her… It seems like that was changed overnight and I don’t like it at ALL 🙁

Please, GH, put them back together

Theyre really throwing the kitchen sink at them (and it came out of no where) but i still want them! I think they had really great super couple potential. I loved how they were written as meant to be for each other. I dont get why they would mess with that kind of couple

They were one of my favorites, as I also really likes Nina and Franco. When I used to watch Y&R these writers were there and I disliked their “style” then. I see nothing has changed:(

All these two ever did together was have sex….and then some more sex…..and some more sex. They never engaged in intelligent conversation nor did they have anything in common other than liking SEX A LOT!
Not that there is anything wrong with liking sex as much as these two did, but damn, you’ve got to have more than an over active libido to sustain a relationship.
I never liked them as a couple and am happy it’s over.

I don’t care what they do, write a twist which will put them back on track of their love and commitment to each other. I’m not taking the ride, I’m boycotting GH and ABC until they fix this insane story. I’m sure I won’t be the only one. To tptb, fix the mess you created or your ratings will continue to fall.

Alexis and Julian are too good to throw away. It’s great to have a meaty plotline such as this because it keeps the viewers watching and hopefully will help with ratings. We wouldn’t be watching if everything was rosy all the time, now would we? This is nice and soapy material for the GH viewer!

HE LOVES HER? When he is issuing veiled (and not-so-veiled) threats like “till death do us part”? With emphasis on “death” if she doesn’t play his game and go along with his destroying evidence? NOT MY DEFINITION OF LOVE!!!
PS And did he love her years ago in the backseat of a car???

I loved Julexis. After a stressful day it was nice to relax and watch two amazing actors with so much chemistry give us back some love in the afternoon and escape the stress for an hour! But I have to say it does not suprise me that GH ruined such an amazing couple cause they ruin everything when Alexis is involved.

nancy dillingham
Guest
nancy dillingham

I never saw any chemistry–the actor playing Julian is much too “contained” and “restrained” to stir up much fire. I don’t see his appeal in any way.
And TPTB have compromised and “dumbed down” the character of Alexis so much that she seems on par with her lovesick teenage daughters. NOT appealing at all.

That goes double for me–no fan of Julian nor Ava. They can be at each other’s throats one minute, ready to murder the other–and then she can leave on a trip and kiss him in the mouth. Is that SICK or what? I feel nothing for either character. Murderers do not appeal to me nor can I identify or empathize in ANY SHAPE OR FORM with them.

I know what I’ve watched on my screen for the past 3 years. The love story between Julian & Alexis was beautiful and it was real. This overnight rewrite by GH is infuriating and insulting to its viewers. This is not the same Julian, especially regarding his behavior towards Alexis. Nevertheless, it’s a soap and anything can be rewritten, good or bad (clearly!). Any character can be redeemed. So GH can rewrite their rewrite now. Julexis is the best couple on the show and too beloved by viewers to just throw away. I’d love to see an explanation on screen… Read more »

Yes, I agree, Harry. There was no love story here. This was a ‘rutting’ story….anytime, anywhere. Once that euphoria calmed down….there wasn’t much left for Julian. Going back to his hunting ground was his diversion. The fact is, Molly, a young woman without much life experience had the sense to set her mother straight about Julian. I still remember their argument, as Molly was folding her laundry, LOL. Alexis took no heed. Seriously, though, In retrospect, we all think ‘I should’ve; could’ve; would’ve”. However, when one is at a certain time in her/his life, especially Alexis, who has had so… Read more »

Not beautiful and NOT REAL. Julian is a MOBSTER, a deceiver, a coward–I won’t go on.

Lol, Harry. That sardonic humor always gets to me!! Whatever Alexis and Julian had/have was built on a lie. He always projected himself to her as something he was not….as someone who had changed….as someone who had left his life of crime behind. Sadly, she bloated his ego. Now, she is left with a bitter taste in her mouth and probably a sense of self-loathing. Sure, I can sort of believe he, himself, believed it….but, a life of crime is in his DNA; so firmly embedded within his essence (as is Sonny’s) that it would be an Herculean task to… Read more »

I have always hated the Jeromes. ALL of them! Alexis has never had any emotional intelligence she got what she deserved. Nancy always does exceptional work and I think ending Julexis will give her even more meaty materia

Celia
Guest

Agreed, Soapnexis. Julian is a big, fat, painful thorn in Alexis’s side.
Imagine the storyline(s) that could be had without dragging that ball and chain (Julian) around.
It seems to me that Julian is not worth much without Alexis. She seems to be the air in his lungs. Not so, she!!
Alexis can sail on her own steam. So, TPTB should just give Nancy the material Alexis deserves, as you suggest.

But I think the writers are acknowledging that the character has made bad choices. Alexis seems to understand that her choices have gotten her into this position. If they break up Julexis (and it’s hard to imagine anything less than a break-up can happen), then I hope Alexis is paired with a good guy for once. Maybe Ned?

Gail
Guest
Gail

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Julexis and hate what the writers have done to them. Nancy Lee Grahn is really bringing her all to these scenes but there was soo much other angst that would have worked for them. Julian struggling with returning to the mob because Alexis’ life was threatened would have been more in character.

Jennifer
Guest

They spent years building their love story, and one day decided to change Julian’s character? His love for her is one of the things that made them special. This is NLG’s hottest pairing. I hope they fix the sudden character assassination of Julian. I love their chemistry. Julexis is everything.

I am not a long-time watcher, Jennifer….but, years? I thought julian and Alexis made love not even two years ago. For the second time. The first was in the backseat of a car.
Going right for the kill without really knowing who the person is…..well, It’s stupid and childish. Kids act mindlessly; not mature; been-there-done-that ‘older’ people. It is always the wrong thing to do.
I still think he used her.
Some people go on the same destructive joy ride, over and over….that’s Alexis.
Nonetheless, I have softened toward her because she thought she had finally found her true-blue prince.

@MeIissa. Exactly my point, Melissa. This is such compelling writing. This is how I look at it…a bird’s eye view, without prejudice. I do believe the writers have exactly your point in mind. I did mention it a couple of times. I think it’s genius. This relationship was never going to work. It’s only my opinion….does not make me right OR wrong!! Why? Because the love was not built on a fundamental basis. The attraction was there….yes. But it was more like finishing something that was started 40 years ago and Alexis wanted to recapture. Along the way, she forgot… Read more »

I guess I’m in the great minority. I never liked Julian and felt he was always using her. Yes, he may have loved her in his own fashion, but not enough to be honest. I also disliked that she had so little common sense, she thought he would change. She’s a brilliant woman with little common sense in her own life. I have never really liked them together. He is now threatening her with what- rape and other abuse. “She better be ready to act as his wife,” or something like that. I hope they do not go back together.… Read more »

Hope the spell is finally broken and she realizes that her love can only heal her and not Julian who has to be what he is…an irredeemable manipulator who never really respected her. He just gave her enough to keep her, all the while doing what he really wanted to do knowing he had no intention of being true to his word.

The way both Julian and Sonny have treated Alexis has been awful. The “you’re dead to me” comment that Sonny made was abusive and awful. Did nothing to endear Sonny to me, a character I already could live without. Have never really warmed to the character of Julian, even when he was becoming a “good” guy. I didn’t like the way they gave him an “instant” family. And like Sonny, all his children are with different women. It’s kind of gross.

I never liked Julian or Alexis, but, Alexis has always been honest with her feelings , and because of it, she fell for him headlong….including trusting him.

As a long time soap viewer I have seen my fair share of happy couples crash and burn, so I am not surprised this is happening, yet disappointed in how it happened. Personally I would have like to see more doubt on whether or not Julian actually killed Carlos. A nice twist might have been Kristina coming across Carlos on the run and is about to call her father, when he begins attacking her to stop her– then Julian walks in on that. Next we see Carlos dead, but we don’t know who killed him Kristina? She could have her… Read more »

Alexis and Julian are a very dry couple.
They don’t do anything together, nothing, they just kiss and argue.
We have a law abiding lawyer married to a crime lord, and yet nothing intriguing about them.
Their story has been uneventful/boring..
Even now the arrest and all that whole mess has been very dry of intruge, drama, suspense, that has not included in their story ..
Com’on this is GH for keristsakes not the Waltons..

I love Julexis! Although I am not a fan of the current storyline it is giving NLG and WDV great material and they are killing it! Julian is desperate to keep his family together and protect all he did to get out and make a better man for his family and Alexis. That is where his “creepiness” lies; in his desperation. I think Alexis should love him for the man he is and wants to be no matter what, with some fun twists and turns along the way. Isn’t that why we watch?!!

Julian is head of the Jerome mob, he is crime lord and he is hardass killer.
He should be written as Julian the crime lord, that is his character,
Julian is who and what he is, he is not a pansy powderpuff grandpa!!

No Su, it’s like writers writing about relationships which are a huge part of soaps; always have been. Watch The Flash, Game of Thrones, How To Get Away With Murder. All fantastic shows which I love. They have the excitement, challenge, danger, fun that you (and I and countless others like). But they’re completely different genres than GH. It’s the same reason you didn’t like Nashville, which by the way six million voices who do were heard and it lives again!

Julian and Alexis are grat together. Awesome family ties. A true opportunity for a super couple with a modern day mixed family. Not sure why the writers are choosing to forget the Julian we saw for the last three years and give us the cold psychopath version in the last two months. So disappointing.

“A modern-day mixed family,” eh? Sorry, but I beg to differ. No family here–just deception and treachery.

Treacherous, nancy? Except that Alexis is not manipulative. I ‘gotta’ give her that. She’s honest; only foolish and gullible ….as Melissa said: she made bad choices.
Julian? Well, yeah!! I see the letter T written all over him.

I kmow WHY they did it; to throw Alexis into a moral dilemma and emotional upheaval, to show that a man weaned in the mob can’t break the “habit” or desire for power and living on the edge as easily as he thought he could. Julian thought he could have it all…lay low, be the silent power without Alexis ever having to find out. Unfortunately it’s all unravellnng. I do love them together though. Not sure if they’ll find their way back or if they’re going to pair him with Nina. We shall see…

I agree with Harry regarding the absolute revulsion I feel for Sonny. It really is so ludicrous for him to judge Julian and walk around like a pompous ass as he ridicules Alexis’ and Julian’s relationship and calls Julian scum, lowlife, etc. Sonny, who many of us have already mentioned, who killed AJ in cold blood, who hung AJ from a meat hook, who tried to kill Jax, who threatened to kill Carly if Olivia died, who had sex with Ava in the Q crypt by the resting place of AJ. Sonny, who just days ago menacingly threatenef Alexis just… Read more »

Julian is trash. Always has been. I hoped they would reconcile because they have a loyal fanbase but after the way he’s treated her the last few weeks I wouldn’t care if he got killed off the show or went to jail. How could Alexis ever take him back after this? I won’t respect her if she does. I can’t .

I disliked this couple from the beginning. Alexis needs to ask for a plea and tell all. Once she does, she can can wear a wire and go home and get a confession from Julian. Police enters, he takes Julia hostage. Sonny and Anna were hiding in the kitchen, just as they come out, Julia elbows him and Sonny and Anna empty their guns and kill Julian.
Now that’s justice!

Su, what do the other couples do that make them more interesting than Alexis and Julian? All soaps go back and forth between harmony and disharmony. Alexis is a beloved character who’s had many obstacles: her daughter slept with her husband, she had lung cancer, het mother was murdered, her sister was blown up, she had an affair with Sonny, she pushed her sister’s murderer to his death, she had a great relationship with Ned, s beauiiful friendship with Jax…all the while being razor sharp, sassy and funny. She was the sane, loving aunt and confidante to her nephew Nicolad… Read more »

“… like Julian. But by taking him out of the mob they made him too powerless against Sonny. I didn’t appreciate that turn…he lost his edge. Sonny beat him in front of Alexis in their living room? This is Julian Jerome! ” this part really rankled with me all this trumpeting and parading Sonny … how grand is he? that’s when Alexis and Julian should have had more dialogue… to see how they should have dealt with each other I felt for Julian… the actor himself… must have been livid to have to assassinate his own character that way “…So,… Read more »

You bet, Jay….as we saw today, Julian is worse than Sonny, in some ways. I could not believe what he said to Alexis when she walked in her house, after making bail and found him there….. He basically told her he was not expecting her to be ‘freed’. It was as though he was sure she would not be let go. He should have been so excited to have seen her….instead….. So, where’s the love? We protect those we love; not throw them to the hounds….or wolves; whatever the saying is. LOL. Why are the writers having Julian channel a… Read more »

The current storyline is great to watch as NLG is fabulous to watch and she should be nominated for the Emmy as Lead Actress next year and win. Cut and dried Alexis should be able to divorce him and move on. It never is cut and dried on the soaps. LOL My feeling has always been she should have known better.

In Alexis’s world, why the sad face? She has rubbed elbows with Sonny, Ric and Shawn. Its not like she didnt know how this would end? But anyway, Julian murdered someone and thats tough to swallow if your lying next to someone in bed that murdered another human. BUT, it was Carlos, a low life scum bag who killed Duke. So what, in their world. Now, if Julian would have killed Lila or Edward, okay, but stuff but Julian killed a mobster. So what!

You’re right, Timmm. I will not contradict a word in your comment. She was enmeshed with bad people; mobsters, her entire life. So, don’t you find it interesting, a challenge, if you will, that the writers have switched lanes so suddenly? Nancy has so much to offer. Thus, the change of venue. Julian and Alexis, as a couple, have no story left. Their story was always the same. Same beginning; same ending…..all in bed. You’ve seen it once; not much left to see. He, in his speedos. She, in her spanx. LOL. They needed to be split up. Julian will… Read more »

Hi Cee, you see this too often where writers switch lanes and even worse when they rewrite history. It is lazy and it pisses off the fan base! Your right though, their dog and pony show is over, either Julian will end up with Nina or Alexis will rethink her loyalties and there will be a triangle. Speaking of Nina, we see a little fire in her now. Could it be that Jean and Shelly, who wrote for Y&R are channeling RED now? Its okay, “Coma Nina” sucked. I also want her to move away from FREAKO! And again, I… Read more »

Hey, Timmmy,

She needs to superdump the guy and not look back. The Jeromes are all bad news. Ask Anna Devane. They ruined hers and Duke’s entire lives. As a Classic viewer of GH, their “love story” does not impress partly because of Jules’ history but also because of the writing this time around; it’s clear he hasn’t changed one iota, and in fact is worse, and the domestic abuse scenes do not make for an empowered couple. I do love how it’s now cool to leave the mob for your woman because it used to be in the classic days as… Read more »

Love that Nancy can finally have stong material to work with. What I’ve really been interested in is seeing the way Alexis has had to mentally and emotionally move in the direction of denial to where she is now. I think her strength will eventually win out. I hope. A little sad because I really believed there was genuine love between Alexis and Julian, and it wasn’t just them “getting reacquainted” in bed, a lot. And that there was real family stuff that I think was new for Julian, and maybe he was also in denial at one point and… Read more »

Hi, Rose,
Not so out of character for Julian….he has always been a weasely snake and coward.
Do you remember when Danny was seriously ill; needing Julian’s bone marrow, or was it plasma?
Well, Julian used Danny to blackmail Sonny when he found out Julian’s true identity. He has no loyalty or holds fealty to anyone but himself.
Now, he is doing the same thing by letting his wife fry for his crime.

Celia
Guest
Celia

PS.
Sorry…sent too soon. LOL
I wanted to say that I, also, question the writers’s intention. Julian was on the path of ‘righteousness’ (lol) for a while; at least, trying….so, I am assuming that William is either leaving or, as a few of us commented, Julian and Nina are dancing around a possible relationship….of the sexual kind.
If Nina’s ‘advances’ towards Franco are any indication; she’s hot to trot. Getting antsy much?? LOL.

Rebecca1
Guest

C..Julian truly loves Danny and offered his blood before he knew (Sam and Alexis didn’t know either) that he was Danny’s grandfather. From that point on I knew he was capable of compassion and love. As far as using that against Sonny, that was a smart call. Julian didn’t help Danny because of that, but It was great that Sonny couldn’t kill him because of it and he let Sonny know it. Nothing wrong with that..

Celia
Guest
Celia

@Rebecca1.
Thank you for the explanation. I must have forgotten how it all went down. I really thought that Julian had been told Danny was his grandson, but would not help unless Sonny kept his mouth shut.
Needless to say, neither Sonny nor Julian is on my list of favorites. Each has committed despicable acts from which there is no return…..at least, not for me.

Rebecca1

Lol, you’re welcome. I like Julian, a lot, so I had to clear his name, at least in that instance. I’m not trying to change your mind, but If anyone really looks at this character since William Devry came on the canvas (I heard, but never knew Juluan Jerome from back in the day so his history is more criminal, dangerous it seems than what this incarnation’s been) he’s been nothing but supportive and loving to Lucas, open enough to change his original reaction to Lucas being gay, loving and supportive to Sam, saved Danny’s life when he was just… Read more »

Plus Julian strong armed Alexis into defending Carlos for killing Duke when she was at her most vulnerable, mixed up state. Why? Because she’s a great lawyer. So when she says to him that the evidence against her now is a slam dunk ( with Diane as her lawyer), why does he still say plead not guilty? Why is her learned opinion/expertise good enough for Carlos, but not good enough for her own assessment of her chances? Jerk!

Celia

@Rose. Why, Rose? I am no expert in psychoanalyzing the writers’s ‘fertile’ brain; but, the viewer is supposed to sit back and accept that which makes no sense….or just doesn’t compute. At this point, we are to feel pity for Alexis because she is Julian’s scapegoat. Well, it’s working for me. She looked like a little lost bird chained to that table, albeit I did detect a strong sense of self and pride. I hope she keeps it up. But, as it always comes to pass, in soaps, Julian will scoop her up at the eleventh hour and be the… Read more »

Patrick, it’s interesting that you mentioned Alexis is wound too tight regarding her morals because she’s been criticized on this board for loving a criminal…and blamed for being a hypocrite and going against her morals. I feel the writers read these boards and incorporate fan reaction. All of a sudden characters in the show ie Carly, Sonny, Sam, Diane etc are saying Alexis was led by lust and is compromising her values…all egging her on to do the right thing. I find THAT galling…each one of them loves Sonny and/or Jason ( Diane loves Max and they were always insinuating… Read more »

I think your suggestions were great Mary SF and would have been a path back for Alexis and Julian.

@Rose…I still believe the love was real between Julian and Alexis; he just gave in to his impulse to get back in the business…as did Duke. Neither one stopped loving Alexis/Anna.
As for Anna, I don’t think she was sincerely bonding with Alexis…at this point she’s only interested in getting Julian so she used their similar circumstances to manipulate Alexis into talking…which is why Alexis told her “where to go.”

Just because the writers finally gave Alexis a relationship again, complete with…gasp!…sex, doesn’t mean it wasn’t love. Just because this is a soap and we’re not with characters all day, doesn’t mean (Nancy, Harry)…that ALL they did was have sex. The writers rightly decided to show a middle-aged couple… Read more »

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.
