General Hospital’s nurse Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) certainly has had her share of problems in her personal life over the last year.

First, trying to hold on to the man she loves, Jason (Billy Miller), without telling him who he really is, and now facing for the second time, her young son, Jake (James Nigbor) fighting for his life!

Actress Rebecca Herbst who has been receiving kudos from many GH fans, took to Twitter today to thank them for their unwavering show of support for her performances. Many were also recently vocal that Becky did not receive a Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination in the Lead Actress category from her peers.

Herbst shared to all the fans this message:  “Thank you for taking the time, on a daily basis, to make me smile. Your kind messages always fill my heart …XOXO”

So, what did you think of Becky’s acknowledgement of her fans?  What have you thought of her performances of late in the latest twist and turns in the Elizabeth and Jason saga, and now Jake saga?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Good Actress… When I watch her.. I never think of her as she is action.. she is a class act… she just needs to stop doing the bad things.. get with Franco.. I like them together!!!

Actually I want Franco to stay with Nina. But maybe he could rekindle Liz’s interest in art as therapy or a hobby. At one time when she was with Lucky she wanted to study art and had her own little studio. I think this could be good for her. Also, since one day we will get past this Jake/Jason storyline one way or another, since she is Steve Hardy’s granddaughter, I’d like to see her “stature” in GH society reflect that. Maybe ask her to help coordinate the Nurses Ball adding in a GH founders memory skit, along with more… Read more »

I want Phyllis to stay with Todd, too. Opps, I mean I want Franko and Nina to remain together as they fly off to Timbuktu forever and ever.
They have got to be the most pointless and boring couple in daytime history.
Clearly some executive suit harbored some fantasy of a Todd and Phyllis coupling.

the thing that bothers me… is at the end of Friday ep:

Jason is at the hospital with Liz and little Jake

yet before you know it…. he’s at Liz house in the basement… as ????

a lovelorn figurine ?
a messiah ?
a bold machismo willing Sam to get UP and fasten her HOT boot strap and dig into herself… and steel that much more of her sure self
a sexually charged deity of such magnitude…
a “ghost” love story yet to unfold

I hate when serials do this…

I would like to see Liz stop chasing Jason. Let him chase her. He pursued her when he was Jake, he’ll come around again. And if he doesn’t, who needs him? There are plenty of guys who’d like to be with Liz, that new doctor hottie maybe. k One thing I’ve noticed, Jason has never had to chase Sam. She’s always been ready, willing and available whenever he wanted her.

Harry 1

Maddie, I don’t understand why either Sam or Lizzy, who are both beautiful in their own rights, think Jason is the ultimate door prize.
I think Jason (no matter who is playing him) is about as exciting as a cold bowl of porridge and he is really much ado about nothing.

CeeCee

OI think Liz has seen the error of her ways and eased on the chasing. Sam picked up where
Liz left off. Sadly, those boots cut the race short.

Gee, Harry. How do you know how exciting Jason is? Lol…….I would think both Liz and Sam have had a taste of him. He must have something satisfying to offer. I like cinnamon in my porridge.

Harry, I quite agree! He’s a good looking guy, but most soap guys are! But his connection to Sonny all these years makes him quite the loser. Maybe if he pulls away from Sonny’s orbit and goes more the Quartermaine route, he will be interesting. But what I’ve seen so far is same-old, same-old. CeeCee, LOL re: Sam’s boots. I had to laugh when she tripped over them and then proceeded to flounder all over the basement floor for a week, seemingly unable to find the stairs.

Hey, there, my friend. I know, right? Poor Sam. We may poke fun, but it’s not so funny when accidents like that really happen. I mean well, Maddie. But, sometimes my twisted humor rears its ugly head. It’s not real, so, in that context, we may have a little fun kidding around. I must agree with Harry, to a degree. Billy Miller in Y&R mode is a completely different person in GH mode. I never realized how unintelligible his speech was. Yet, I like him so much. I overlook many flaws. I honestly think Jason should get a fresh start,… Read more »

What Tristan said. Yes, of course I was disappointed with Miss Lizzy’s actions regrading the Jason reveal. However, she let us know her motivations and what drove her to such desperate actions. Moreover, those of us who have loved Lizzy since the day she unexpectedly appeared in Grandma Audrey’s house, wearing short shorts and ordering pizza on Granny’s credit card, have loved her since she first crossed the Port Charles threshold. We watched rebellious Miss Lizzy play second fiddle to her inferior and most insipid sister, Sarah. We also watched her waiting in the park in her red dress for… Read more »

Love Becky and Liz. Consummate, subtle actress. Often maligned on other boards because of the ludicrous “fan war” that GH keeps stoking. And really, does anyone think Jason is worth it? No matter who is playing him, Jason is a character I cannot abide. The most one-dimensional, endlessly propped character in GH’s history, bar none. What I love about Becky is that she totally sold this awful story, despite the assassination of her character that resulted, and despite her own belief that the storyline was totally OOC for Liz. The internet hate for her has been fierce and unrelenting, with… Read more »

Thank you Patrick and Dylan. And Tristan, you are right about those misguided JaSam fans. There does seem to be disconnect in their minds which makes it so they cannot distinguish between reality and fiction. These are the sorts who give us soap viewers a bad name. And here is the rub–Kelly Monaco and Rebecca Herbst are friends. KM does not appreciate the bashing of her friend in the name of Sam. In fact, she hates it as does Laura Wright who also has had to call out some rabidly angry fans on Twitter. Some folks really need to get… Read more »

I am a Jasam fan-however,I respect the job that Rebecca Hearst has done with this difficult storyline!!! In fact,back in the 1990’s somewhere I believe,there was talk of firing Rebecca Hearst!! I was one of numerous fans that talked them into keeping her-and I’m glad I did!!! I wished she had gotten nominated for the Daytime Emmys-I think she got robbed!!!! I’m mad at Elizabeth,but I love Rebecca Hearst!!!

I adore Becky and Elizabeth is my favorite GH character. Liz has been needlessly thrown under the bus so many times. Regardless of the writing Becky never fails to sell whatever she’s given. For 18 years her talent has turned a flawed character into someone endearing and relatable. My dream is for GH to probe Liz’s abandonment issues.IMO they are the root of her bad choices.She doesn’t feel truly lovable. After getting to the bottom of that I’d love for her to find a strong stable and loving relationship. Lucky & Jason are toxic for her. Would love a love… Read more »

Truly, Harry–especially since the fact that she almost lost her job had nothing to do with her performances or her popularity and everything to do with ABC’s underestimation of both.

And need I point out that she’s hardly the only performer on soaps with a large and vocal fan base who contribute to keeping her employed?

Shay

@Harry1….Is that a rhetorical question? There are a lot of comments that strike one that way….especially when deranged soap fan syndrome comes into play….some people are simply far too invested in certain characters, and it does appear that the line between reality vs fiction becomes blurred. The Liz and Sam advocates are a prime example of this, even though we fortunately don’t see their ongoing war here so much as on other websites. (Most posters at MFSoaps appear to be pretty even-handed and fair-minded when debating the individual merits of these two ladies.) Personally, I like both RH and KM… Read more »

Possible problem for we Liz fans. Another site is reporting that — from multiple sources — BH’s contract negotiations with GH have hit an impasse. And yet, and yet…Michael Easton’s 4th new GH character, all the non-starter characters brought in by this regime…What goes on??

BH’s Liz is the last link on the show to Dr. Steve Hardy, and they would let her go????? If they do, after treating Jason Thompson so cavalierly, I am not sure how I can continue to invest in a show that is so poorly managed.

What?????!!!!! Rebecca has fans because of her stellar acting . She is not a favorite because of her fans….just the opposite is true. This woman can convince anyone blue is red and white is black; and vice versa. That’s because she is talented; not because of how many fans she has. Bah!!

Rebecca Herbst has been doing a phenomenal job with the material this past year. She had brought it every single day, with a subtle acting style that shows everything she is feeling with just a look. Do I feel she was overlooked for an Emmy nod? Absolutely. But the gracious way she congratulated the ones who did, and the way she acknowledged the fans show her class and innate kindness

She is, without fail, a class act. I adore how she communicates with fans, but above all I love her for always putting in the work. I’m happy to be seeing her character front and center- I hope it continues. I am grateful to these writers for acknowledging the character’s many layers- good and bad- and for establishing new relationships for her as she says good-bye to old ones. I would be lying if I said I didn’t hope for a sexy slow-burn relationship with the new doctor. I think a well-built hospital romance is exactly the next thing this… Read more »

I’m not ready for Liz to have a new romance as a consolation prize after all the lies and chaos she has caused. Hasn’t she had enough “romances” and kids over the years with different guys? And certainly not with the new doctor. As far as I’m concerned she has a lot of redemption to go through, along with some self esteem building.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

When you put it that way? Yeah, Rose. I think that because Rebecca is up there in the stars for me, I forget Liz’s despicable actions. Yup, she foes ned to go through some sort of Devine transformation. Her son is in hospital; plus, she thinks he started the fire and tried to kill Sam. That is punishment enough for any mother. Soon.

Becky Is unfailingly gracious, positive and respectful, regardless of the nature of the feedback she gets on social media. Her professionalism is inspiring. Elizabeth’s story this past year has taken the character through the wringer, but as always, the actress has been shining. She portrays every good, bad and ugly moment of Elizabeth’s life with such conviction, I’m completely invested in the journey she’s on, and I’m looking forward to seeing what her future holds. (I’m surprised at how much I’ve enjoyed the Elizabeth and Franco scenes we’ve had. The characters make the strangest bedfellows, but Becky and Roger and… Read more »

“…All the hard knocks unhappy moments she has ”

I certainly agree… and I think this.. is because GH “knows” that as an actress she can beautifully play this out… time and again

yet… we nonstop root for how much her character pulls at our heart

may as well rip it out in fact

how tortured we ( LOL ) are for her in fact

I guess that’s the ride… because we’d have seen her happy ?

she carries the fans with

she won’t let up if we don’t

Rebecca has chemistry with all the male characters she has worked with. She was also part of a super couple that gh never considered a couple.

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

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

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

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

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

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