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

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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..

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!.

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

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..

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

Tony Dow, ‘Leave it to Beaver’ and ‘General Hospital’ Alum, Still Alive But in ‘Last Hours’ Despite Reports On His Death

UPDATED:  Since the original posting of this article, Tony Dow has now passed away.  On Wednesday, July 27th his son, Christopher confirmed his death on Facebook sharing: “Tony passed away earlier this morning, with his loving family at his side to see him through this journey.  We know that the world is collectively saddened by the loss of this incredible man. He gave so much to us all and was loved by so many. One fan said it best—“It is rare when there is a person who is so universally loved like Tony.”’

The original post below is the story on how Tony’s wife, Lauren Dow, had shared that her husband was still alive after erroneous news articles on his death were premature:

Lauren Dow, the wide of Tony Dow, best-known of his role of Wally Cleaver – the All-American older brother of “Beaver” Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) on the TV sitcom, Leave it to Beaver, shares that he is still alive amid previous reports of his passing early today.

Earlier, Tony’s management team had posted news of Dow’s death at the age of 77 on a Facebook post, but that has since been taken down.

Now comes word from Lauren to ABC7 in Los Angeles, that her husband is still breathing, but is in hospice care in their home.  She admitted that based on some health issues that happened overnight, she inferred that Tony had passed away when she informed people close to her and the family.

However, Dowd’s son Christopher confirmed to PEOPLE that his father, “is still alive but in his last hours. Under hospice care.”

Daytime fans recall that Tony played the part of Ross Jeanelle on General Hospital back in the mid-70’s.   On GH, Ross was investigating the murder of Dr. Phil Brewer and in story, Ross also dated nurse Beth Maynard, who was the sister of Diana Taylor.

Some of Dow’s other TV credits included: Adam-12, Mod Squad, Emergency, The Love Boat, and Murder, She Wrote plus he directed numerous TV episodes.
