I hope she fights for Ava’s baby..
She is the grandmother..

Then when Ava hides out at her mother’s she will be with her baby daughter.

That’s Good I like it, although Delia is probably coming to town to help
clear up the Denise business. Is she or isn’t she Ava’s long lost twin???

well,
if its going to be an unknown twin story then I’m very happy it will be Maura/Ava playing a double role !!
but–
I do not believer it will go that way, its something else ..

Fanny

Do you believe Silas tampered with her memory? Or is she a doppelgänger?
the possibilities are endless……

Fanny

Of course what would make most sense, is if they had been separated at birth
unbeknown to Delia…

Well, RC and team are masters at twist and turn shockers..
It could go in any direction..
What we believe at first won’t be correct ..
Maura will bring it home. I’m excited to go on this journey ..

I actually said previously that Delia has always been very much aware she had twin girls. That was my very first thought and I posted it…prematurely, as usual. They were adopted by different families. This is all conjecture, of course. Perhaps it is Delia who brought Denise into the picture for her bone marrow. All this has been meticulously planned by Silas, Ava, Denise and Delia. As I already said, even identical twins’ DNA a is not exactly the same, nor do they look exactly alike. I am actually much prettier than my identical twin…LOL. joking!!! So, Is Denise Ava?… Read more »

SU, hi, The more I think about it, the more I agree with you. Please, bear with me…. There is no Denise. You believe it’s Ava through and through, right? I think you might just be right in that assumption. Silas saved Ava via Avery’s marrow. You said the true story was “something else”. So, here it is: Delia is in on this and together , that is, with Silas and Ava, concocted and masterminded the twin story. Now, I did also suggest that premise as soon as “Denise” walked in. So, Ava is definitely “dead” , as everyone will… Read more »

Lol, Fanny….we are talking about a fictitious character here. I am sure Maurice is a VERY GOOD person. He must be a decent human being for being with the same soap for years, dealing with co-stars day-in-day-out. We can love the actor, but dislike the character. I think I’m clever enough to discern between reality and fiction….but, I do thank you for your kind admonition, Fanny. I like you very much….so, I respect your words, albeit, I will still share my thoughts, positively or negatively. Nonetheless, anyone who continuously murders in cold blood or acts as God and takes revenge,… Read more »

@ CeeCee I certainly did not mean to offend or presume that U meant anyone other than the character of “Sonny”. When I said “let us not judge to harshly” It’s because Sonny is truly a product of his environment, beaten and broken and locked in a closet repeatedly as a child did something to his psyche.. all due to the fact that his father Mike, a compulsive gambler abandoned him and his mother. She remarried an abusive, violent, crooked cop…. You see where this is going… And where it has lead… Yes, he has committed some heinous crimes in… Read more »

@Fanny.
My dear Fanny.
I was not affronted, in the least. We just have a difference of opinion, that’s all. We both respect those differences.
Sonny is the typical Alpha Man. Redemption is reserved only for those who do not keep making the same mistake over and over and hurt people. He has no redeeming qualities, if his focus is still hurting Ava…or wanting to retaliate against Jake. He hates Ava and wants to hurt her for doing exactly what he did. Now, in what world is that logical? In the world of the soulless, I say. Only my opinion, Fanny.

@CeeCee Lovely CeeCee, I chose to look at Monday’s show through your EYES, meaning my aim was to remain objective in regards to Sonny’s ” I know better than you” attitude. I’ve mainly given him a free pass on all the bad behavior plus,plus..he’s subjected us to throughout the years, do to the GOOD many things he’s also done in his life.Of course two wrong’s don’t make a right…. YOU on the other hand R RIGHT in your assessment of the “GODFATHER.” He was convinced Denise was Ava from the moment he set eyes on her, not a miscalculation on… Read more »

My guess, based on years of soap watching, she’s there to confess she gave birth to twins, and Denise is Ava’s twin sister. Okay, maybe that is me hoping she is Ava’s sister because I would love to see MW play dual roles for long time to come. Of she might be in on a plan to convince everyone that Denise isn’t Ava, including “confessing” she had twins, which would explain why their DNA was the same, assuming tomorrow we find out it is.

Maura West has magnified GH on so many levels danged it tho… “denise” still has magic with Morgan (pretty boy ) “YES!” LOL it looked like William DeVry (Julian) was doing every thing he could to reign himself in… as “denise” sauntered in to their “shared” penthouse… “denise” IS – …. “HoT” ( I could have done without KM’ Sam sleuthing ) I so agree with your post… that Mother Delia is in town to help “Aves” ???? correct me if I’m wrong : wasn’t Delia the only other person to see Ava “alive” at the pub or kelly diner… Read more »

I said the same thing, Mary. The baby girls were adopted by two separate families.
As yourself, I would love to see Maura play dual-roles. She would ‘kill it’!!

She was the heart of comedy in OLTL s. I’m old enough to remember her vividly being the best thing on Ryan’s Hope. The idea of the character living on is great. I think of how my mother would have loved to find out ” whatever happened to Delia?” That the FV AND RC we do!

CeeCee

So happy to hear this news. I love Ilene. She brings a piece of OLTL each time she steps onto the GH stage.
Her appearance must be directly related to Denise’s big splash, somehow.

She reveals Ava had a twin—Denise but is it a lie to protect Ava?

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

It could be a lie, Jimh. But as I wrote on another thread, Delia may turn out to be the heroine here. She knew that there was a strong possibility that Ava’s twin, Denise could save Ava’s life. There still remains the mystery of Avery ‘gone missing’, though. So, if Ava is alive, who saved her? Avery or Denise. Do we want two separate entities, Denise AND Ava?… Or do we want them to be one and the same? Furthermore, if Ava is alive, do we want her to get away with murder?…..will Carlos be the scapegoat or did he,… Read more »

gosh ! Maura West is, invariably, thee best “actor” of this genre it’d be through the roof for so many to see her acting her tail off… just making waste of all the rest…. ( LOL) seriously… she commits so much… and makes every one else around her bring their A game. I think GH production… would be better served keeping one Ava… at the top.

@Patrick.
I can’t argue with what you are saying, Patrick.

But, your last sentence gives me pause. I never thought of Carlos-Sloane in that context.
Hmmmm…..food for thought.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I was just hoping that Carlos would somehow be re-invented and brought back to GH … as a regular Joe

this Carlos…. haunting Anna

seems like a storyline exit for her 3 month hiatus

she’ll leave for a much needed reprieve … due to exhaustion and heartsick

I was always assuming Silas kidnapped Avery so that he could use her bone marrow to save Ava. In the scene where Silas gives Ava that injection that looks like he’s ending her life, I figured he was just knocking her out for surgery. He would inform her after that the marrow came from Avery. Now that Denise has appeared, I have no idea what’ s going on! I just hope that Ava will be back, because I really like that character.

Actually, Delia gave birth to triplets….so look out for Maura West in male drag during the next sweeps period- then she can win both Best Actress AND Best Actor!

The stem cells of her baby may have caused her blood to change and it will seem like Ava and Denice are related but can’t prove it is Ava.

Wow, Dawn….what a great assumption!!! Of course!!!!!!! Good call. I bet that’s exactly what happened. One way or another, it was Avery’s DNA on that report. Your explanation makes the best sense yet.

Always glad to see Ilene back on GH as Delia. It really pleases me when they write bits a pieces of former soaps into the script. The nod to long time viewers is so very much appreciated. Plus, Ilene’s character has so many connections in PC and she provides comic relief. Love it!

I still have questions, and some possibilities… How did Delia even know Denise was at the police station? She may come off a little flaky, but maybe like a fox…she problably knows a lot of people, who know a lot of people, having worked in a New York City bar for years. Just look at who she hooked up with to have Ava…a Jerome. And I’m sure she is a survivor. Well we should find out more on Monday. Then there’s the cryptic message Brad got after giving the test results of the DNA to Lucas. Has he reverted to… Read more »

Hi, Rose.
Delia knew because she is in on the scheme devised by Silas. She and Ava are part of the plot. Delia and Silas are aware of “Denise’s” every move.
If vial switching was indeed done, then, it was Silas who did it. But, as Dawn suggested, Avery’s bone marrow took care of that and possibly, no switching of blood was necessary. We shall see.

Rose
Guest

Love seeing this story develop, especially since favorites like Ava,/Denise, Silas and Delia are all involved. Then there’s Brad and the lab tests. Not so sure there wasn’t some hanky panky here as I mentioned before. Keeps you guessing which is fun.

CeeCee

You bet, Rose. Silas may have called a favor which Brad owed him….I am really enjoying this….
For once, we are not dealing with dumb storylines. This situation is doable and credible.

They should bring ber onto the GH canvas and keep her! She’s funny and fun to watch. GH needs some “fun.”

madluv4u

Ok. Here’s my 2 cents…
Silas kidnapped baby Avery and removed stem cells from her in order to fight Ava’s cancer. So Ava is off recuperating and Silas is tending to her. This explains how the kid just magically appeared in his home, no less. They still haven’t offered up and explanation for that yet. Nevertheless, I’m glas Maura is back!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Ava, Silas and Delia are all working in concert….the trio’s sudden re-appearance, together, speaks volumes. Coincidence? I think not!!
That is exactly what happened, madluv…..Silas too Avery. However, I doubt we will learn the truth any time soon.

Hey there, CeeCee!….After Monday’s episode, I’m leaning toward Denise and Ava being one and the same….did you catch when Ms. DiMuccio invited herself to stay at Julian’s “penthouse?” Was that a slip-up? Would everyone at-large know that Mr. Jerome has that particular type of abode? Of course, such information could be gleaned from the internet, but the way that little nugget just so comfortably dropped off Denise’s tongue to me implied a specific familiarity of his home, especially since it first belonged to Ava. Wouldn’t most people simply say “your place” or some other euphemism? Strange…….At any rate, regardless of… Read more »

What a treat it was to see Delia in action once again! I especially loved Sonny’s reaction to her….they are like chalk and cheese! Despite coming off like a disorganized hot mess, me thinks that Dee is actually crazy like a fox, and helping her daughter Ava pull the wool over the PCPD. She needs to garner a more permanent place on the GH canvas…..and helming the counter at Kelly’s would be the perfect spot for her!

I just posted to Su on “Shawn’s” site that Ava and Denise are the same person. I had said it may be a twin or not. Su was pretty adamant saying it was indeed one person. I believe that. ….too many inconsistencies otherwise. Moreover, I emphatically stated that Silas had been the mastermind and he, together with Ava and Delia made up the whole thing. I was wrong. The trio returned all at the same time , which made me suspicious. But, after his discussion with Kiki, Silas seemed very surprised….angry, even, to find that ‘Denise’ was in town. This… Read more »

@CeeCee…The only reason I suspected Silas was a party to Ava’s duplicity was her obvious background knowledge of the “chimera” effect of her stem cell treatment, which led her to confidently pulling off her “Denise” masquerade: she knew full well her DNA test results would come back as they did. I would have assumed that he advised her of this medical phenomenon, as well as other physical manifestations like the absence of recognizable fingerprints and perhaps even darker hair growing in after chemo? (If that is indeed not a wig….it actually looks pretty fake to me.) Having said that, I… Read more »

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
