Nathan Parsons leaving General Hospital!

After all the speculation over the past few months of the status of Nathan Parsons (Ethan Lovett) status with General Hospital, it appears now that the actor is definitely leaving and out of Port Charles.  Of course, in Nathan’s case it was the case of too little too late, as just as the woman in white/Wyndemere story is beginning to unravel, Parsons is setting sail.

Julie Marie Berman ( Lulu, GH) during an online Twitter chat yesterday, “I am sad about Nathan, but he wasn’t used right. His talent was wasted.”

Parsons joined the show in 2009 as Luke and Holly’s  son that nobody knew even existed! So how do you feel about Parsons departure from the soap?

I agree with Berman here. This actor and character were never used well and that’s a shame. It could have really fostered some new attention to GH’s rich history, sibling rivalry and bonding, rethinking on choices made. I wonder if this exit may be the first of many to come as GH prepares for a new and potentially lifesaving chapter in its history as a daytime drama.

Here is to another offensive rewriting of history that led to absolutely nothing.

I enjoyed his scenes with Constance Towers and Jane Elliot but overall, no big deal to me.

So sorry to see you go, Nathan Parsons… I thoroughly enjoyed Ethan’s time in Port Charles. You were the ‘fun’ in the dysfunctional Spencer family!

Love, love Nathan, but have to agree, terrible story lines. I mean how many times did we all need to watch Cristina swooning over poor Ethan. He is too handsome and mysterious to be wasted on babysitting scenes. Would have loved to see a sex scene or too. he he!

I like Ethan and NP. But, I didn’t like that they made his Luke and Holly’s son. That would mean that Luke cheated on Laura. We all know that would never happen. I would have liked it better had he been Luke and Laura’s son. Maybe do a story where at first they had trouble conceiving and her eggs were frozen and he was the son from the frozen eggs.

I like that they made him Luke and Holly’s son. What I dont like was how they toyed with us introducing us as his son, playing like he was some young stud of Holly’s. I liked that he was Like and Holly’s son, bc it leveled the playing field of BOTH Luke and Laura having a son, outside of their relationship. BC, when they make Nickolos Laura’s son, I didn’ t like it, bc Laura would never cheat on Luke,, and WORST, she didn’t remember having him. I liked Lucky having two brother’s to go to., and I would of… Read more »

Laura didn’t cheat on Luke, she had Nikolas when she was away from Luke and trapped on an island belonging to the Cassadines. In contrast, Luke and Holly was about Luke making a conscious decision to cheat on his wife, while Laura was raped by Stavaros. Also, Holly was married to Robert and in a coma at the time that she supposedly met Luke.

As for Kristina, I think Lexi was wasted in some really asinine dialogue, having the same repetitive conversation with Ethan.

I’m sad about him leaving – but I wanted them to explore the relationship with Kristina – and when they blew that possibility, I lost interest – they’re disappointing me on a daily basis now, I’m beginning to feel like it’s just a matter of time. I didn’t want to believe that..but GH is looking more and more like the Titanic every week………..

And the mess they made with Venessa Marcil, even giving her a child, OMG, horrible. And she made her own mess too, not dressing up, not making up for the camera or the fans, and not wearing sexy. Venessa contributed to the mess., and that voice, and that LAUGH OMG…, like the Octamom.

GH jumped the shark when the made Ethan Luke and Holly’s son. Ethan should have been a Scorpio: the son of Robert and Holly. During that time, Luke never would have cheated on Laura. These types of retcons are the reason why soaps are a dying genre. It’s sad.

I wanted a sweet young romance between Ethan and Kristina but no, the former regime didn’t have the balls to try something different. I’m so god-damned sick of Sonny, Jason, Carly, Sam, Lulu and Dante.

Now Ethan is going to be paired with the cross-eyed mute who hasn’t spoken a word yet is in love with! Give me a f**king break, GH!

I’m officially done with GH — At this point I’m also down with Nathan Parsons if he would rather be involved in this ridiculous “gothic” romance than be paired with Lexi Ainsworth.

EPIC FAIL, GH!

He had awesome chemistry with Lexi and their friendship should have been written better and a possible romance should have been explored.

What a waste of time his character was. Had the writers had a brain he could’ve been extremely popular but they gave him the wrong father. If they would’ve stuck with the original plan of him being a Scorpio, the man’s ratings could’ve been off the charts. I hope a lesson was learned by TIIC.

It’s a shame that he is leaving. I was hoping for a new young romance like gh like they use to do 10 15 years ago. Right now , its all so old. I am so tired of Dante and Lulu and Maxie and Matt. GH needs a real love story and Nathan Parsons would have been a perfect person for that story line. There is just something sexy about him.

I like Nathan/Ethan. Once again GH messed up! It was too late. They didn’t give Nathan any good storylines. He is a talented actor & GH wasted him! Once again disappointed in GH! Nathan will be somebody else’s gain & GH’s loss!

Please don’t get rid of Nathan/Ethan too! The scenes when he and Luke first met were hilarious! They acted the same, drank the same, thought the same, etc. It was funny! I love the character Ethan, and I think Nathan is right on as an actor. He is cool. Please keep him on the show; just give him a story line! Since Tony Geary comes and goes, GH needs someone like “Luke” to keep the show alive! Nathan is an asset, and I liked him the minute I saw him on the show!

I just heard that Nathan is leaving GH. He was one of my favorite actors on the show along with Jonathan Jackson. Talent like Nathan’s is hard to find and this is slowly becoming the end of GH. Here comes more disgusting reality shows.

He’s gorgeous and talented. GH F—– up once again. He should have been Holly and Robert’s son from the beginning. No, the powers that be decided to let Tony Geary have his way, once again, at the expense of the show and the viwing audience.

I love Nathan/Ethan but I agree they didn’t give him any good storylines. I was really interested in Ethan/Kristina and when that was done with his character became even more useless. It would be better if they just give him some good stories. The writing on GH has become atrocious and it’s really hard to watch. I keep watching hoping it gets better but that doesn’t seem to be happening.
I also agree it would have been so much better if he was a Scorpio…

I am very sad that Nathan Parsons is leaving the show. I loved him as Ethan and thought he had a great senso of humor and added so much to GH! I will miss him and hope he lands on his feet in another show or series, He is a talented man who deserves a great show that will appreciate his terrific talent and acting abilitites.

Ethan is one of the newer additions/characters to GH that the majority of the fans actually LIKE. What lttle material he was given, he always did a fine job with it. I think the writers could of explored and played the jealousy card with the brother’: Ethan, Lucky and Nickolas with Lucky being teh pawn. The writer’s could of then gave them a storyline together that would of brought them together, making Nickolas and Ethan accept one another and be ” brother like ” to each other. That would of been nice. I will miss Ethan. The whole Spencer clan… Read more »

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
