” Hello ” any one …. ????

did I miss the conversation…. when Kristina … came out to Mom’ Alexis?

Kristina is talking to Lucas… and told him… She did not take it well… and that by the end of the conversation… Alexis is telling Julian… that Kristina is “accusing” Alexis of being a homophobe

i’ll have to go and look for it on youtube

At first reading your post I thought- wrong wrong- since why were we taken down ladypond lane- but you are probably right on the money- as soon as they trot her out as possibly gay they will hurriedly trot her back to straight as otherwise she would have to go as they will not have that storyline in any real way I feel.

My comment was meant as Kristina is still confused, she does not know what she is. We do know she had relationships in the past and was married. I do think she is attracted to Parker but her first intention was to get a good grade. I think Parker may be flattered that a young women is attracted to her, as maybe her marriage that she wants to keep is a bit fragile. If you look at the men she has been with or wanted to be with Ethan, Johnny, Trey and the boyfriend that she killed. Very poor judgement.… Read more »

I don’t get this!!!! Daytime soaps are always CLAMORING for something that has NEVER BEEN DONE on soaps before!! Here we have it…a bi-sexual. NEVER BEEN DONE ON SOAPS!!! They do exist, you know!!!! Sorry GLAAD! Sometimes, young girls, and guys, experiment with their sexuality, and then realize “Hey, I’m straight.” no big deal. Go for it! Tell the story!! Due to her abusive past, have Kristina experiement with women, but then realize she is straight! No harm, no foul. No need for parades, and pickets. Just a true to life story! I hope Jean and Shelly tell it!!!!

But, seriously…look at DeLuca. WOW!!!!! As Timmmy said; I hope he can act; and has a brain….one must go with the other. If I wanted only a beautiful face and physique on a guy….I could just stare at my husband all day. However, DeLuca doesn’t look like a cookie-cutter.… Read more »

Ahhh, CeeCee….Looks and brains! An unbeatable combination…..sounds like it runs in your family! But seriously…..I’ve already told you I find Michael Easton to have a unique and purely soap-friendly façade and I can also appreciate Griffin’s considerable charms…all well and good! However, variety is the spice of life, and I regard the lack of a golden boy on the GH canvas to be highly remiss. The closest thing is Billy Miller’s All-American appeal, and I do enjoy that, but as I have previously mentioned, one thing this soap did so well in the past was to bring in international talent,… Read more »

Well with two beach movies to his name, we know he is in shape and ready to be shirtless—LOL—- Sonny does need a new enforcer since Sean is in jail and Jason isn’t interested–maybe if he is in many scenes with Sonny it will give me something to look at– no offense to Max– who looks more like a teddy bear than a bodyguard– but Sonny needs a new go to guy and I can see this guy being him.

You really think Finn is shooting up, su? Oh, gosh, I so hope not! He is a doctor…holding lives in his reptilian hands. I think he is Roxy’s mate, injecting himself with human cells. That’s it. He is a reptile. Well, why not? It’s GH. LOL.

I was like …. WOAH !

i’m surprised the message boards aren’t on fire … with Finn extra curricular activities

my first thought is that he’s using his body as a test subject ???

I was more annoyed that Carly shows up with fresh towels… and their , those two… go again… gushing about Roxie.

two ad nauseam bonding scenes between these two… do not make them an interesting pairing

CeeCee
Guest

@Patrick.
Hey, Patrick,
That’s an excellent premise. Finn using his own body as a testing subject. Would I go too far and say that he may have injected himself with some kind of parasite/microbe/organism in order to find a cure?

Walter

Walter

Heroin? Could it simply be insulin?

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Well, Walter. That is the first thing I said when Finn pulled out that immense needle. For medicinal purposes. As he is an infectious disease specialist, he may have contracted a tropical disease? I also think Roxy provides him with the serum….and, he is using it on Tracy, as well.

What in heaven’s name do we need another new face on the G.H. canvas for when those of us who’ve been watching this show for decades don’t get to see the people we really tune in for?? I want to see Mac and Felicia, Lucy, Laura, Scott, and anyone else who’s been missing from Port Charles or is only there off-screen. These characters’ history with the show and fans should be equally, if not more, important than bringing on yet another new face. And can we please stop having these actors referred to as ‘hotties’ and ‘hunks’. They are actors… Read more »

That black dress was EVERYTHING. I don’t know about you, but….. I’m really tired and bored w/ Sam & Jason I was done with them before it began. No spark, No chemistry, No chance, they’ll never be the “super couple” TPTB were hoping for. That magic was with the original Jason played by Steve Burton…. For me B Miller will always be Jake.

Jason got boring as soon as he became JASON and got back with Sam, together they are a snooze fest. I hope Liz gets with Griffen, and I agree about Hayden needing to stop picking on Liz kids, Liz should tell her call me anything you want but leave my kids out of it . Love Nina too and I hope Anna gets Julian soon he needs to pay for his crimes.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

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.
