Recently on her Instagram story, Daytime Emmy-winner, Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina), revealed she is back at work at General Hospital.

The actress who debuted as Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) daughter back in 2009 has been on and off the series through the years, and fans have wanted to see Ainsworth back with more story on the Port Charles canvas.

Ainsworth tagged General Hospital in her IG story post and noted Prospect Studios were the show is taped along with a call sheet.

Lexi was last seen in September of this year, when Kristina was reunited with her very-much-alive father, Sonny Corinthos.

Kristina’s last few storylines involved becoming involved in the Dawn of Day cult and falling in love with her professor, Parker, played by Ashley Jones.

No word yet on when Ainsworth will be back on air on GH, but stay tuned!

Do you hope Lexi is back for a run of story? What would you like to see happen to Kristina next? Comment below.

Given the timing, I’m guessing Kristina will show up for a few episodes over the Hellidays and then (sadly) disappear for several months again.

It’s really sad that they can’t write for her. If all the recent Corinthos family drama didn’t get her any extra airtime, maybe the recent resurgence of all things Cassadine might require her presence?

I always find it odd when characters are written off because of lack of story. Christina is a Corinthos and a Cassadine and gets less screen time than her 1/2 sister Donna? Creativity is lacking when you can’t write for a character – especially on a soap where ANYTHING can happen!

And how about the problem that General Hospital has ALWAYS had finding scenes for the police commissioner and chief of police? 90% of the airtime is given over to a crime family, and there’s nothing for Mac Scorpio to do. As lame as Commissioner Ashford was, at least she had some story. I remember the same fate befalling the wonderful John Reilly when Sean Donely succeeded Anna as the PC of PC.

I only wish this meant General Hospital realized their mistake in not continuing the #Pristina S/L & gets Ashley Jones! Those 2 were dynamite & told a realistic story of what these couples face in trying to live with their choices. Those fans pleaded with #GH to keep the story going & fans worldwide started watching #GH. Ashley was the best thing that happened to GH, she & Lexi are made to work together! Undeniable chemistry Ashley was outstanding as Parker yet treated poorly by the lack of screen time I would watch again if Ashley went back to resume… Read more »

Mary,
Sorry, but I disagree. While Ashley is great as Bridget on B&B, I felt she was way too old for Christina. Where Chrissy is younger and tiny, Ashley toward over her,more like the professor and mentor she was.Even Alexis said something to that effect.Also it made Allison look unattractive with that age and size difference.

Good to have her back. Hopefully they have a story. Why not pair her with Terri?

That would be most interesting! I would to learn more of Terri’s life. GH could do a lot of positive insight with this.

I’m with Brian. I think Terri is a kick, with a goofy sense of humor and I love her girl power get-togethers with Portia and Elizabeth. I smile whenever Terri is on, as opposed to wincing as I do with Michael.

Friday’s show was kind of interesting with Alex wanting to take Harmony home with her, than remembering the woman had made Krissi’s life hell while at Dawn Of Day.
I thought they seemed interested in each other before Alex was released and I think this meeting yesterday will not be the last

Violet, we’re in synch AGAIN. I’m really starting to like Harmony and Alexis needs a friend since Diane is only on a few days per year. I’m sure bossy, judgmental hypocrite Carly will object to Harmony visiting Wiley. She’s gotten rid of grandma Nina, so now she can eliminate Wiley’s adopted grandma too. That leaves her free to corrupt Wiley and turn him into Michael II — a repulsive, selfish, serial womanizer with no access to shampoo.

There’s also the fact that the Alexis & Diane friendship seemed to be centered around lawyering & drinking, and Alexis isn’t doing either of those anymore.

Though she really should go back to the lawyering part. Whomever sends Heiny back to Hell is going to need a good lawyer right away.

You never know. With so many people having motives, it may never be revealed who did him in. A lot will love to take credit. Iam sick of waiting , they have dragged this out way too long.

I think it will be more than friendship, they are both off men for now anyway. Can’t wait for Nina’s trial. I think some good stuff will come out about Sonny and Nina. Everyone seems to know the truth about those two, except Carly that is. Hopefully she will be enlightened at long last. I think she deserves the truth, ha, ha.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
