On General Hospital, Does Alexis Mow Down Julian? Watch The Promo!

Doesn’t Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) already have a history of getting behind a car and hitting someone? Sooo, then this Turkey Day plot turn could spell disaster for the boozing Ms. Davis!

In the latest ABC promo for General Hospital, while the Quartermaines and more gather for their annual Thanksgiving gatherings, and Lante looks to saying their “I-Do’s”, Alexis is in bad shape and Julian (William deVry) may, or may not, be her intended target!

As Alexis is behind the wheel of her car, we see Julian walking, then we we see a body flying after a car goes right for him.  Alexis cries, “What have I done?” But was Alexis just watching as this all happens and not the guilty party behind the wheel … or … will it be revealed as is intended in the promo that she ran down the once man of her dreams?

Watch the promo after the jump, and let us know what you think of this latest Julexis conundrum? Comment below!

Julian? I would rather she hit Jordan, Nathan, Nina, Curtis, Andre, Griffin or Finn!

Well, I can agree with half that list, Timmmbo….and add Hayden and Alexis herself! Either have her hit a tree once she’s completed her vehicular homicidal handiwork or perhaps forget to put her car in park before she gets out of her car to inspect her “roadkill,” then, whoops…Alexis gets plowed down, too!!!!

I would only keep 2 from UR list, and U wouldn’t be pleased
w/ my choices …Sorry. Is Alexis going fast enough to knock
some serious sense into him…doubtful. And we all know he
won’t become her next casualty, otherwise we’re looking at
Julian being her third victim. And she has the ba–s to call
Sonny and Julian unscrupulous !!!!! REALLY

Sorry, Fanny. No comparison between mob bosses and a woman with a disease…because at this point Alexis has a drinking problem…she’s not out partying.

@Rebecca, hi… Yes of course I realize Alexis is an alcoholic
and that it’s a disease. That being said… whatever happened
to the real Alexis…Smart,witty, brilliant attorney, great friend
good mother…. Julian happened and I get it, I really do….but
not with eyes wide shut !!! She chose to pretty much ignore
the ugly truth about Julian again and again…. Even when he
admitted to ordering Duke’s murder, she still married him. So
now she’s a Mobsters wife… Did she truly believe her love
would change him, make him a better man…When a man
tells you who he really is believe him. When reality finally
sets in she turns on him…he sees this as a betrayal and
momentarily snaps tries to kill her and all hell breaks loose.
She drowns her sorrow in the hope that it will help her for-
get… That it was all torn to shreds, love, career, self esteem.
But again…all the life altering decisions Alexis made were
done so before the booze became an issue.

All I can say is that NLG is bringing it home with this alcoholism story. She really plays a drunk so very well. The mornings after a bender? Well, you can see the self loathing on her face and if you have a loved one who is an alcoholic, you know that look so well.
NLG is the Meryl Streep of daytime. I just love her.

Hi again Fanny. As Jax said to Carly, ” We don’t choose who we love…” I make allowances when I watch soaps; there are things that so go against my grain that even suspending my disbelief doesn’t change how I feel. Michael returning Avery to Sonny for example. Michael forgiving Sonny without so much as a lingering conflict. But when it comes to love on GH…I kinda go with the flow if I like the two people in the couple. I love Alexis; always have. And, she’s still all the things you described…smart, witty, a brilliant attorney…she’s still a great mother and friend.

I still like Julian. There’s something about him I just am drawn to. And, I do believe he did and still does love Alexis. I’ve come up with several theories of why he attacked her. One: fantastical…Helena cursed the knife that she returned to Alexis…the same knife that she used to slit Alexis’s mother’s throat. If we are to believe that Helena truly can curse people…than that would exonerate Julian in my eyes for attacking her.

My second more realistic thought is he literally lost his mind when everything started unraveling. He killed Carlos, he felt guilt…but he did it to preserve his life with Alexis. I think when she couldn’t accept that he had lied again, had killed again, he just assumed she’d still stand by him. His love was that deep; he thought their relationship impenetrable. When she went against him by wearing the wire I think he literally snapped from hurt, shock, feelings of betrayal, realization that he was going to lose her and his family…temporary insanity! I tell myself that even though he held the knife to her throat he never would have killed her. If Sonny hadn’t stepped in this is how I want to think it would have gone down:

Julian shaking with fury, holding the knife to her throat, but repeatedly asking “why.” Why, how could you betray me. He thought she loved him..their family..how could she just throw it all away…all the while crying. And then, throwing her away from him, dropping the knife, running away..

Lol. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. As for Alexis, her current state just cries human to me. She loved him deeply and truly believed he had changed. You don’t get over that kind of love…particularly when it all unraveled so quickly..or the shock, the brutality and betrayal she felt. Couple that with the harsh judgment she received from everyone, losing her license, her pride, her reputation, her life with her husband…makes sense to me.

People go through great times in their lives. Other times, they fall apart if the burden is too great.. Cumulative. She’ll bounce back. Eventually…

Rebecca1

One more thing Fanny. If you recall Julian explained to Alexis how he had grown up…in a very cold environment with a mob father. He didn’t feel nurtured, he wasn’t encouraged to feel love or want family. His newfound love for her and his children gave him the incentive to change. So when he told her he would, I truly believe he meant it and so did Alexis. And then…he didn’t. Or should I say he too, fell off the wagon.

My dearest Jimmy….I wish you find some solace and joy, somehow.
Have faith, my friend. It will not abandon you. Easier said than done, I know it seems that way now. But, my faith, my husband, my son and family picked me up and carried me during my darkest moments.
Much love.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
Hoping to hear from you soon.

Jimh…Hoping you feel better soon. You are probably the first commenter I wanted to follow when I started on MF a few years ago. As a “story teller” in your own right you always bring humor and wit to whatever you add. So Happy Thanksgiving to you, and look forward to reading more from you about our imaginary alter universes.

Jim, you are a staple here at Michael Fairman. I hope and pray you have a family member or a church that you can turn to. I dont know what you are going through but remember this, you are a snowflake, we all are, without each of us, there would be no snowman to build, no snowball to throw or not enough snow to ski, hang in there, we need you, EVERYONE counts! Happy Thanksgiving buddy.

Oh, Jim, so sorry to read of your troubles. You’ve given us all so much joy and food for thought with your posts. I know cliches don’t really help, so let me just say that there are people who care, even if we’re only online. That, along with my faith and my books and music and the great acting on our shows, always encourage me to see the good sides of life, even in terrible darkness. My prayers will be with you and remember we need you.

@jimh….Thank you, my friend! Sending thoughts and prayers for brighter days ahead.. We all have our moments when we feel the need to “step away” from the MF Soap threads, but please don’t allow it to become a habit. Your comments “make our day,” and it’s never the same when those always-anticipated remarks fail to appear, At the very least, promise to keep in touch to let us know you’re hanging in there and still lurking “here” amongst the many regulars who call this website “home!” Take care and best wishes for a most blessed Thanksgiving and holiday season.

All I know is that the Quartermaines better have to call out for pizza on Thanksgiving—the highlight of the GH thanksgiving episodes is always when the Q’s are SOCLOSE to having the traditional turkey when something goes wrong at the last second and they have to phone out for pizza. I do love that running gag!!!

NO ! no no, it is NOT Julian that she hits..
But– Julian saw who her drunk hitting whomever and then he blackmails her to take him back as her husband..

J&S are are very weak writers.. can she what’s coming before they finish the script..

Nina Smith

That’s what I had plotted out as well. Now Alexis can be even more weaker under Julian’s thumb. BLACKMAIL it’s in the air!.

hi Nina..

Julian will blackmail Alexis to take him back, yup..

theses drunk person hit&run’s whomever are common.. Y&R has used that one more than a couple of times..
0ooh my neighbor (here) just told me it was a favorite plot on AMC, too, she said Brook.for one.

She definitely hits Julian. He probably runs in front of the car preventing her from driving away plastered. I like that list of better targets in another post much, much better. But not Curtis. Someone’s got to rescue him from the Lets All Make Sonny the Mobster Feel Better storyline.

Does Alexis mow down Julian? Probably not, but one can certainly hope. Lord knows he deserves it. Love Nancy Lee Grahn, she’s been knocking it out of the park not only recently but this entire year.

Can we please get some skid marks on Kiki’s back? THAT would be wondrous!

This sweeps period has got to be the dullest on record for General Hospital. One wonders what we’d be watching if Bryan Craig hadn’t opted to leave the show. These stories…save for Anna, Valentin and company…are a snooze-fest!

Will Nick Stabile ever be returning as Nikolas? This is way overdue. Bring him back, Mr. Valentini!

I wish it was Ava and Julian that she hit, maybe now,she will stop hitting the bottle. Not a good look for her.. Diane should be married to Sonny. She gets him..

Msmean

Looks to me like she hit Nathan, Julian witnesses it and will try to help her cover up. She wants her license to practice back at beginning of the year so she will go with the cover up. Plus she doesn’t want her girls to know she’s been drinking…

Again only to put Carly back with Jax.

Alexis is a weak wanna be who doesn’t really
Have a part in the show except for being
A wineo maybe this will spice up her life.

Just an idea……….

Mr. Fairman,
I would love to know if it’s true that TPTB are planning on redeeming Julian and how far they will go? That is, will they mow over Duke and Anna/Scorpio/Classic GH history in the process? The Jeromes are to Duke and Anna what the evil Cassadines are to the Spencers so if this is a continuation of tossing aside everything Classic GH to accommodate what’s considered hot at the moment (though I hardly think it will still be talked about even 3 years from now), it’ll only confirm the worst fears of lapsed fans. I do recall that Jelly said previously in one of your interviews that they wanted Anna to get her Justice for Duke. Since that hasn’t happened, I can only assume the execs/FV changed the direction to keep WD on canvas which is highly disappointing and much too late considering we haven’t had a chance to sympathize with him at all the entire time. He’s had very little POV. To fill it in now with what is inconsistent with his history and his almost slashing of his wife’s throat with the dagger that killed her mother is hideous at best. Thanks for your reporting as always.

Celia

Hey, JMER,
Great post….sympathy for a character has many faces.
Now, I love WD, the actor. Not so the character. And, regardless of any redemption coming his way; I have a problem giving him tabula rasa.
Everyone deserves a second chance, but, not Julian; not; Sonny; not anyone of this ilk…..not, when the same pernicious deeds are committed without the blink of an eye on a regular basis. It is pretty presumptuous of them….sticks to the craw when they keep getting away with it.
So, I care not how much Julian loves Alexis. I care not if she may forgive him. I care not how popular a character Julian is with the ladies. I care not how enticingly perfect his derriere is……a cad is a cad is a cad.
Furthermore, I have come to appreciate Alexis….I would be soooo disappointed if I had to revert back to my old concept of her.
…..Follow your brain, Alexis !!!! Stay away the deep!!!!…..even the most beautiful, serene, invitingly blue waters are infested with sharks.
I hope the writers listen to my oh, so sagacious words! LOL.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
