James Patrick Stuart Returns To General Hospital As Valentin Cassadine!

Now that Charlotte has been revealed to be the bio-child of Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Claudette (Bree Williamson), is that truly the final word on who’s the daddy?  Perhaps, but with Maxie (Kirsten Storms) being wrongly kidnapped and with what appears to be Valentin’s henchmen looking for Charlotte, the stage is set for James Patrick Stuart to finally be back on the GH canvas as the evil Cassadine!

Stuart, who got his feet wet in the role over the summer during the Cassadine Island adventure and Nikolas’ subsequent death, will be back with much more story to tell this time.  During his break from GH, James has been appearing in a play.

He told Soaps In Depth, “I didn’t know I’d be coming back.  Then all of a sudden, a few weeks ago, GH said, ‘We’ve got a ton of stuff for you to do!”’  Stuart added on Valentin’s agenda: “He has much to say. He’s been wronged and he needs to make sure that you understand that. He has a specific agenda!”

So, are you looking forward to the return of Valentin Cassadine? What do you think will happen this time when he hits the canvas? Comment below!

Yea for Anna and Valentin’s return! Let the games begin!

I think Claudette was Charlottes’ surrogate and not her bio-mother and that Loulou is the real mom with a Cassadine daddy.

I have to Say I much prefer a traditional villain over mob bosses any day! A campy catty female antagonist (Obrecht)…a body freezing havoc wreaking (cassadine) …loopy (Niña)..I can even take Franco..just end the entire mob that isn’t a mob for now for ever more !!!

You are so right!!! But even with writing and EP regime changes, the mob is still GH..Enough!! All this so called mobsters just get away with all their crimes..it just ran its course..The Jeromes need to finally pay for their crimes to give the audience some satisfaction..They can still keep the actors in the show by using some creative writing, just punish them finally for their crimes. Take Sonny out of the mob and give him a new direction in the show. I am so sick and tired of knowing before hand, that there will be NO hell to pay… Read more »

Oh boy. Another evil creep. Just what the show needs. We don’t have enough with just Ava, Julian, Paul, Claudette. Let’s have more unsettling, violence-oriented tales. Just gives me less reason to stay interested.

Stop the baby drama trope now! Not that it cannot be effective, it is just overused. And it holds no deep concern for me when the characters are so new to the canvas, despite connections. It is difficult to care.

Valentin; the worst of worst villains, the devil incarnate, the one feared above all.
Well folks, hate to mention this but-
J&S will have us all feeling sorry for him, a pity party. The great Valentin will be pussified.
Sooner than later the Feared One will no longer be feared.

I think Charlotte could actually be Lulu and Stavros’ child. Remember the embryo story? Charlotte could have been the surrogate mother. Valentine wants Charlotte because she is a Cassadine. Laura may be the first to recognize a resemblance to Lulu as a child.

Yes, Maggie. Aria has proposed that also, a few weeks ago. Makes a lot of sense, right?

I think you mean Claudette was the surrogate mom… not Charlotte. But the idea that she’s Lulus child would be great! I dont think Claudette is the birth mom… she seems to eager to leave the girl.

I also think that Charlotte could be the result of Lulu’s embrlyo and Stavros’ seed and that Claudette could be the surrogate.However the idea that Laura would be the one most likely to see the resemblance to Lulu is not as probable as you might think. Lulu was originally played by Tessa Allen who was dark haired, before she was aged 10 years.

I knew Valentin would be back eventually, there was no way his story in the summer was it for the character. I hope he and Nina hook up again and she becomes pregnant with his baby, because that would solve a few issues. First, it would tie Nina to more characters. Second, it would solve her baby issue that’s been playing out for months. And third, it would expand the Cassadine family which has been woefully whittled down. I also hope they have plans to bring back Nikolas, hopefully with Nick Stabile, because the show is much better when we… Read more »

I must give credit to Timmm. He did say Valentin would soon show up, and I agreed. As I suspected since Claudette said she was involved with Valentin and since Charlotte became an issue. He is in PC for his daughter. I hope I am wrong because Valentin would be toxic for this child. By the same token, I do not believe Griffin is Duke’s either. Nonetheless, Valentin, Nathan, Griffin and Charlotte are all blood-related. Nathan for sure, as Shay and I have maintained from day one. Now, it seems that Anna is in for a zinger! Well, quelle surprise?… Read more »

Nathan and Griffen could actually be brothers…the actors do resemble each other…even some of their expressions are the same…i so much want Dr.O and Valentin to come face-to-face on a Friday cliffhanger!!!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Nathan and Griffen could be faternal twins separated at birth…Griffen’s adopted mother could have been involved with Duke at one time…maybe she was a nurse and Duke was her patient…she fell in love with Duke but he did not reciprocate those feelings…later discovering who his father is-the evil Valentin she never told Griffen he was adopted and Valentin and Dr.O his real parents…instead she told him Duke was his father!!!

A bunch of possibilities there, Jimmy. My guesses or presumptions aren’ t taken seriously because they tend to be off the wall. LOL. But, this is a soap. The first thing I said, when Griffin first appeared, was how much they looked like each other. Could they have been brothers? I have learned from you, Jimmy…..my ‘wild’ imagination? Obviously, if what you say is true, and Dr. O is Griffin’s mother, then it reinforces the fact that Duke cannot be the father, right? What I proposed could also be true…..I don’t know how; but, Valentin and Anna could be Griffin’s… Read more »

Nathan will save Maxi, have no doubt. Does anyone think that basement she is being kept in looks like the one Fluke and Dante were kept in?

Hello, Violet,
I looked at the basement scene by rewinding…..and, yes; it does look like Luke’s basement. But, from a different angle . And it isn’t as dingy. New coat of paint? HaHa.
With Luke’s, the staircase faced us; with this one, it is away from us. So, the chair is in the opposite position.
Do I make any sense??

Thank you Cee Cee.

I like the actor who plays Valentin BUT he was supposed to be the worst ever Cassadine? I didnt get that impression. I would have brought back Valentin with Michael Muhney playing the part. He is delightfully devious!

Do you think Anna fell for Valentin or will fall for him?

What if Faison is wearing a Griffin mask???

Celia
Guest

That’s rich, Timmmy. Faison in a Griffin mask. He would have to wear a body-suit, too. LOL. No way can Faison own Griffin’s body. But, again, everything goes. I would love to have Faison back. I’d choose his nutty, shlapstick , mad-scientist antics over Griffin’s forlorn, hurt mind, body and soul any day. Yes, James Stuart’s angelic face isn’t the ultimate look of Rasputin, but, I think that boyish look allows him to get away with murder, literally!! He played the bad guy/brother/nephew on AMC, as well. He’s good at it. On the other hand, MM would kill it!! Pardon… Read more »

How did Valentin get out of jail. Was he ever in a Greek prison? Did he get there in the first place, Timmmy. Hmmmm.

I SO don’t care about this stupid storyline and if Lulu is going to get intertwined in it, I’m even less excited about it. I loathe the Character Claudette and her musical chair return with Nathan/Griffin. The whole story has stunk from day 1. FFWD material.
I would rather see RKK defrosted and back as Stavros any day!

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL, Ces. You bet!!
The thing is, I think the girl isn’t either Nathan’s or Griffin’s. Why else would Valentin come back? He comes to collect his daughter.
Unless he has unfinished business with Claudette …..retribution? ( it breaks my heart to say it because I love Bree; but, her story is insipid ….not dramatic, suspenseful or interesting in any way).
I think the fact that Anna’s and Valentin’s paths may have crossed in the past, will contribute a compelling twist to this fiasco.

Ces
Guest
Ces

Happy Saturday Celia!
So, I’m not sure when LuLu had that damn embryo but could Claudette have carried this child with it and maybe Valentin is the dad as you say?
Poor Anna… don’t bond with that kid yet, because pretty certain it doesn’t belong to Griffin either. I’m just glad they released Nathan from this.
Still…this story has started off so terribly boring and predictable that I can only hope they kill Claudette off and have it more about Anna since Finola needs something new to sink her teeth into! I agree with you.

so funny Ces – “…I would rather see RKK defrosted and back as Stavros any day! ” ie: @Celia – “…I love Bree; but, her story is insipid ….not dramatic, suspenseful or interesting in any way ” Bree Walker certainly has that – it – factor… it’s her leading men… that’s the problem as well.

Ha! I agree Patrick – I’m still not sure what Griffin is all about but he seems so weak. He yells a lot but then gives in. Is he Priest? Doctor? Sex Slave? Do the writers know what this character is about? Is he even REALLY Duke’s son? It would actually be nice if he wasn’t Duke’s son because I quite like his chemistry with Finola 😉 Younger man … Thorn Birds .. lol!! What is Griffin’s story? As for Claudette, she is despicable & not in an Ava despicable way where you still care about her (of course that… Read more »

Lol, Ces. The embryo stuff is so obscure. Aria’s idea of ‘it’ being Lulu’s egg, but whose semen fertilized the egg? It’s not an embryo unless the two meet in a petrie dish. Stavros had Lulu prisoner for so long; it does make more sense. But, Valentin? I don’y know about that. I think Claudette is Charlotte’s real mother and Valentin the father. Charlotte was created the natural way. Claudette and Valentin were, at one point, lovers and Charlotte was the result. Claudette realized Valentin was synonymous to Svengali and took off with Charlotte, trying to protect her. I think… Read more »

haha, idk Celia ….. there is so much talk about LooLOO’s huevo that Charlotte is probably hers. The goldilocks could be hers or Claudette’s; child certainly doesn’t look like Griffin that’s for sure. Maybe Valentin found it and fertilized it? This all sounds so gross but it’s either Valentin’s or Stavro’s child I’m guessing. It’s like that “be careful what you wish For Lulu & Dante, you just might get it – but at what cost?”
Hopefully the writers do something to make this story interesting and FAST!

Timmm
Guest

I agree with you Cee about Charlotte’s parents. I think Lulu and Starvos’s baby will not appear until the child is much older. Remember, Lulu and Dante went on that Cassadine Island caper and poor Rocco was left behind for days! Who does that? No, I just think if GH can stay on the air for the next five years, you will see the “Embryo Teenager” appear!

At this point, my dear, Ces? Anyone could be the father….even Rocco, whom we never see, and is in his 20’s by now. HaHa.

We have never seen confirmation on GH that Valentin is Charlotte’s dad. So far it’s only been Nathan and Griffin. I would say that he and Claudette make a good pair, both rotten people. Is Claudette the real mother though? Could LuLu be her bio mom?

I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with him. Valentin has been mentioned time and time again as being the worst of the Cassadines. His first appearance wasn’t that bad so I hope they can pull something out of their hats to show us why he’s worse than the rest. I’m sure JPS can deliver it.

I hope this will end up with Lulu lesving with her kids for their safety. I am convinced that Dante needs to be a leading man on this show. Let this be their end story and move on with a Dante and Valentin feud, have Dante enlist the help of Sam and/or Carly and give us a real adventure story!!

JMS was the heinous Will Cortland on AMC. I anyone can play the devil incarnate it’s him. I would like to mention as I did earlier in my reply to someone who wrote that Laura of all people, should be able to see in Charlotte a resemblance to Lulu- However when little Leslie Lu was first introduced on G H she was portrayed by a beautiful little actress Tessa Allen, who had dark hair – Lulu stayed that way until the character was aged 10 years.

Just when we thought that we were FINALLY DONE with the Cassadines, we get Valentin !!! Hate the Valentin , Charlotte, Claudette story line. So sick of the “who is you daddy “,story lines. Let the Cassadines go and move on GH !! Hoping that Griffin is really Charlotte’s dad. Love the chemistry between Griffin and Nina !!! Love having Charlotte being Duke’s granddaughter !!!!! It keeps the family continuity going on GH.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
