On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera welcomed back Lexi Ainsworth in the role of Kristina Davis, the daughter of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).  Lexi played the role previously, between 2009-2011.

Ainsworth first appeared in scenes reuniting her with her on-screen mom and sisters:  Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Haley Pullos (Molly) and Kelly Monaco (Sam).  After a brief moment where all the Davis girls were back together again, conflict soon began between them since Molly believes Sam’s dad, Julian (William deVry) shot Sonny.

Later, Kristina goes to General Hospital to see her ailing father who is recovering from life-saving surgery. First, Kristina meets up with her brothers: Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Michael (Chad Duell) who are outside of Sonny’s hospital room relieved that their dad pulled through.  However, the real emotional punch came when Kristina was able to sit by her father’s hospital bedside one-on-one.  Kristina related to Sonny that she should have told him she loved him more.

With tears in her eyes, and tears streaming down Sonny’s face, Kristina tells her dad: “You’re a part of me.  And you are the strongest, smartest, most powerful person I know.  And I don’t know if if I have ever told you this, but I am proud to be your daughter.”  Kristina goes on to say to her father, “Please, please be careful, because I can’t imagine losing you.”  It was touching scene between Lexi and Maurice Benard, to say the least.

So, what were your first impressions of having Lexi back as Kristina Davis? What did you think about her scenes with Maurice Benard? Who do you think could be a potential love interest for her?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

ugh! I could almost take more Sonny… if, it would mean, less of, NLG’ Alexis

Rah Rah!!!!! Yeah, that’s exactly what Sonny needs, CeeCee, another cheerleader! NOT! Bringing back this character was so unnecessary….as if we need any other reasons to feature more of Alexis and her 3×3 brood! As far as I’m concerned, Sam is the only offspring that is actually relevant to the show….the rest of the Davis bunch could leave–immediately!–and not be missed. (Most particularly, Alexis and her omnipresent cleavage! Hey, speaking of, check out the UK’s Katie Hopkins and her latest comments on Helen Mirren….they will sound VERY familiar! LOL…..) At any rate, I would be thrilled beyond words if Alexis… Read more »

I’m so glad Kristina is back it’s good to have Davis Girls back together as well as the Conrithos Family and I’m very glad Lexi is back as Kristina Davis.

Agreed, I thought she knocked those scenes with Sonny out of the park. The dialogue was perfect and she delivered. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for her.

Seriously!!!!! WTF is with all the Sonny love, and admiration??? Im going to gag if I hear anymore of it!!! We have heard he is loving, kind, honourable, wonderful father, great person, loyal, etc etc etc. I have been watching this greasy vile narcissistic murderer for 22 years, and he has NEVER displayed any of those qualities!! As recently as two years ago, he threatened to murder Carly because he thought she shot Olivia! Now there’s foreplay for you!!! Carly gets off on that crap though! Simply put….ENOUGH Sonny adoration!!!! If it was leading to his death, I could stomach… Read more »

there was a moment… when I thought he was dead… on that gurney… he looks mummified ancient and ghastly… his menacing mob stance… just has me rolling ( LOL ) his scenes of late… with Morgan ( who is the only actor, he has any real chemistry with, and the writers decided to can that… with the, like father like son, bi-polar… now their will be too many “comparisons” made… is he on right? i’ll digress… he also has great chemistry with Avery I’ve stated a million times… if the show figures out a way to get Maura West’ Ava,… Read more »

You’re so right, Dylan. This latest canonization of “St. Sonny” is beyond the pale. I simply want to gag…..just like when AG “passed the torch” to MB on that foggy dock when he departed. That telling scene should have foreshadowed exactly what sort of storylines we were in for.

I guess I would’ve felt more emotion had she not had a happy reunion with her sisters first. Made her scenes with Sonny fall flat for me-if she was so concerned about her Dad she would’ve gone to see him first.

JMO of course everyone is entitled to theirs

I was so happy to see Kristina back n interacting w all of her family!!! I hope the TPTB saw how much Kristina was needed back on GH!!! Lexi did a fantastic job n her scenes w Maurice Benard made me tear up!!!

I would have preferred Lindsey Morgan instead. Lexi still looks too young. Her and Molly seem to be the same age and thats not historically correct! She is a good actress though. When the four girls were all together they certainly could all pass for mother and sisters. I bet all of them are close off screen and are probably happy Lexi returned?

Erick
Guest
Erick

I agree, I liked Morgan too. Unfortunately, she won’t be remembered well because of the awful reality-show story that she was stuck in. If she got to work with Nathan Parsons (Ethan) instead of what’s-his-name Trey, then she’d still be here.

Timmm

THAT would be a hell of a couple!

Lindsey Morgan was a horrible actress, Lexi is a better actress. She fits in the role as Kristina.

Lindsey has gone on to have success and like Erick said, her story line was horrible when she was on GH.

I’m with you. Lindsey was HORRIBLE!!! That girl needed to be axed faster than Kiki needs to be. Lexie fit right in, looks comfortable, and not forced; shows she can act. Lindsey was a flatline.

I agree and thought that right away.. I did not ever watch gh when she was on previously.. she is a good actress from what I have seen so far though…. lets hope she gets a good storyline..

I don’t care for this actress in the role of Kristina. She always seems to be too young for the character.

She’s actually older than the character should really be, lol….

I think to say that it was an emotional highlight is overstatement but she was good at what she had to do. I have to wait to see what stories develop for her before I make a complete decision. So far, so good is all I can say now.

It’s great having Lexi back but I heard it’s a brief return so unless she’s sticking around to answer your question, who would I like to see her paired with, there really isn’t any one on the canvas currently, all the young guys are related to her and all the old guys are too old..

Tim
Guest
Tim

She’s already in the opening montge,which means she’s under contract and will probably be around for awhile.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

that’s what I thought… who could she be paired with? Dillan? we already know.. that , his tempestuous scenes with Lulu… are DOA…

it’s Lulu and Dante… and no story… even a pregnant Valerie is going to come between

I really liked Lindsey Morgan… she is much more mature looking… sexier, and more appealing

ugh! just don’t force any more scenes than necessary with NLG’ Alexis

Shay
Guest

@Patrick…I second your emotion on Lindsey Morgan. She was much more convincing as Sonny’s daughter in both appearance and temperament….a real “chip off the old Corinthos,” so to speak!

I thought, General Hospital uses a Xerox Machine: Kristina and Molly look like twins. I have started watching General Hospital for the last years, that’s why I do not know Kristina and I don’t really care about her. It’s such a tragedy to watch the rapid decline of the serie!

Mary SF

I wasn’t watching when she was first on, but my first thought was she looks younger than Molly, but they look very much a like that it is believable they are sisters with the same mother and cousins, since their dads are brothers.

She was actually quite good when she was on before she had the storyline where she was getting beat up by her boyfriend and would not tell anyone. But JFP at the time did not think she was sexy enough Nancy Grahn and several others were furious over her firing as they should have been. Good little actress .

Loved having LA back as Kristina and loved the Davis girls stuff. GH should be promoting/focusing on characters and moments like this instead of Sonny & mob wars. Seeing Sonny’s kids tell him how amazing he is for two straight weeks has not endured me to Sonny or his portrayer.

I love this more edgy portrayal that Lexi does of Christina Corinthos. You can totally see that spit fire in her that I would imagine a kingpin mobboss would have in his eldest daughter. Wow, what a perfect match! Why did you ever let her go??? She blends well with the actors who play her brothers. I love the actress who plays Carly currently. I liked Sarah Brown as Carly, but I loved her as Claudia Zacchara. Can you bring her back? And Sam as Julian Jerome’s daughter-how interesting is that!! Thanks GH. I’ve been a loyal fan since 1976.… Read more »

Oh, the family tree! It’s so hard to keep everyone straight. So Kristina’s sister’s (Molly’s) dad (Ric) is her father’s (Sonny’s) half brother. Her other sister’s (Sam) dad (Julian) is the brother of her newest sister’s (Avery) mother (Ava). Sonny has 5 kids, all by different moms. Alexis has 3 kids, all by different fathers. Elizabeth has 3 kids, all by different fathers. Carly has how many kids? Presumably all by different fathers. Julian has 3 kids, all from different moms. Olivia has 2 kids, both with different fathers. Are there no kids on this show anymore who share both… Read more »

Lucky and Lulu… that’s all I got.

True, but Lucky is not on the show. Lulu’s only brother on the show is half-brother, Nicholas. Speaking of the Spencers/Baldwins, forgot to add that Bobbi has two kids, also not biologically related and that Scotty has four kids all by different moms, too. Nothing against non-traditional families, but it just makes it hard to grasp the emotional core of the show, when you don’t have one or two families to anchor the world. That’s why I would make Robin’s next visit one where she brings a young son back. She got pregnant on her last visit. This way, Emma… Read more »

I had a good laugh as I was reading your comment, downtownla. I am not familiar with Christina. Is this the original? I only caught a few episodes with the last girl, as Christina. I liked her. This Christina could pass as a fifteen-year old; and Sam looks old enough to be mother to both girls, never mind their sister. But, all is forgiven…..literary Justice? Nah! LOL. If you can’t keep track of what child belongs to what progenitor, how do you think I feel, as a newbie? LOL. I actually FF’ed Christina’s scene with Sonny. I can’t bear it!… Read more »

I can see Sonny’s kids rallying around their dad…but you’d think he was St. Sonny and Carly was Mother Theresa. Come to think of it, they didn’t have a priest there in case Sonny needed last rites. Don’t like how Michael back-pedalled from being Avery/AJ’s champion, and tabled how his real bio-dad AJ was treated and killed by Sonny. He was actually showing some real conviction and backbone for a while. And Morgan is obviously out of control, and nobody is doing anything to help or stop him knowing full well there may be bi-polar issues. So we’re in for… Read more »

I like the actress and I thought she was good, unfortunately she is just one more member of the Sonny cheering section to raise him higher on his undeserved pedestal.

I like her, she’s good. She also looks like she could really be Molly’s sister.
I do, however, wish her return was predicated on something other than being there at Sonny’s side.
I also wish her mother would stop smirking like an embarrassed adolescent every time the subject of her bad boy to comes up in front of her daughters. It’s ridiculous, Alexis is supposed to be a smart woman but she appears to be stupid and sex driven when it comes to her dating choices.

I agree with Justin: too many Sonny worshipers. Plus, Rose and I are on the same page about Michael turning his back on A.J. by jumping on Sonny’s band wagon again. However, I don’t know what’s happening lately because I’m not watching G.H. anymore. As I stated before when the show allowed Michael to return to Sonny’s corner and forget that he killed his father, that was it for me. That’s the reason I left G.H. some years back ; the show allowed the mob to wield too much power , or should I say Sonny. The Qs were played… Read more »

I liked Lexi but , nothing could entice me to watch the Everyone loves Sonny show. Krissy use to have no illusions about her killer father. She actually knew he almost killed her putting a bomb in Johnny’s car. So my stomach could not have taken it. In one day tiic ruined the whole show. TIIC may just as well call the show Sonny’s family because all of the show is related to him.Jake takes out half the town without a gun no less. Stupid TJ tells his mother the cop he owes Sonny for saving him. gag me. He… Read more »

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
