Tamara Braun Debuts As Kim Nero On General Hospital: What Were Your First Impressions Of Her New Character?

Courtesy/ABC

Who says you can never go home again, and when you do make it fun and interesting?

Well, that is just what Daytime Emmy winner, and the former Carly Corinthos, Tamara Braun is doing now that she has signed back on to be at General Hospital!

However this time, as previously reported, Braun is back playing a brand new role that of Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) mom, Kim Nero.  Viewers got their first glimpse of Braun in her latest Port Charles incarnation on Wednesday’s Thanksgiving episode of the ABC sudser.  And who does Kim meet first? Yup! You got it … Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard), in a nod to her previously GH role, now played for the last 12 years by Laura Wright.

In story, after Joss (Eden McCoy) and Oscar go upstairs to check on Avery, the parents are left alone.  Kim makes it clear she knows that Sonny is involved in organized crime, which is why she claims she is concerned about her son getting mixed up with Joss.  However, she says she will step aside and let their little romance play itself out, as she is fairly certain it won’t last long, which in turns causes Sonny and Carly concern over her attitude.

A single mother, who is a doctor, Kim explains to Carly (when Carly presses the issue), that Oscar’s father hasn’t been in the picture for awhile, and it is a very complicated situation. When Sonny and Carly’s other Thanksgiving guest, Jason/Six (Steve Burton) arrives things turn intriguing when Kim looks upset and shaken, and says, “Drew!”

What were your first impressions of the character of Kim Nero? Excited to see how Tamara Braun folds into the story? Do you think the man she knows as Drew will turn out to be Billy Miller or Steve Burton’s character? Comment below.

But Drew (Miller) can still be with Sam whether he turns out to be Jason or not. Personally, I don’t feel Miller and Monaco have much chemistry in real life probably because they’re close and comfortable with each other in real life. They lack the intensity that Burton and Monaco shared. But still, I don’t care who Sam ends up with

Steve was in Port Charles with a girlfriend named Courtney when Oscar was born so he cant be Drew. I guess you have to know GH history to not be fooled by her calling him Drew.

Harry

Mia’s right! But GAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Courtney. I hope the mere utterance of her name doesn’t bring back that vacuous, stupid character.
In my mind Courtney is on The Island of Forgotten Sappy Characters keeping Sparkle Pony (Sabrina) company. I think Emily is there too.

He probably is, Bren….yet, who knows!!!! As I said TPTB can switch gears at any given moment.
Nonetheless, if Billy is Drew ( not saying he is??, LOL) , could the name Aurora mean something?
I realize it’s where Billy’s Jason and Sam were planning to relocate — in Aurora, NY…..but, what if such a city exists somewhere else? The place where THE Jason has been?

Jimh

Kim should also turn out to be Nelle’s mom…they kind of look like each other imho…Oliver and Nelle could be half siblings with different fathers…while Oliver will be a Q…Nelle wouldnt be one and so she can still be with Micheal…but doubt they would go there!!!!

Shay
Guest

Aurora, Colorado? Or, maybe the name “Aurora” is associated with the person or protocol used to transfer those Jason memories to BM’s character. Then again, it could be a military codeword that was utilized during “Drew’s” stint as a Navy Seal!

@Shay. Hey, hey, hey, Shay….. Good one!! Let’s just say, Shay ( HaHa) , the name/word Aurora may have some significance…. I am still not convinced Billy is Drew. Howevahhh, the exchanged look between Billy’s Jason and Oscar was intense. Was it my imagination? This kid is turning out to be OK ( starting to warm up to him). Great eye contact and eye ” acting”…..as it is said, the eyes are the portals to the soul….or windows…whatever. I just feel completely miffed over the easiness in which Jason2 has been repudiated and flicked off by many. ……my heart goes… Read more »

@Jimh. Hi, Jimmy. Yes, it is quite uncanny how Nelle and Kim resemble each other. Your premise is a good one….especially due to the fact that TPTB need to find a niche for Nelle. What is her purpose now? Why were she and Michael broken-up by this writing team? Was it to turn Nelle into the villainess she was meant to be? Yet, it makes no sense. Remember when she first came to town we speculated Nelle may have been AJ’s? All these images are going through my head…..is AJ, somehow, involved in this game of who’s who?…Lordy, Lord, Jimmy….exasperating,… Read more »

@CeeCee,,,,As much as I have welcomed Steve Burton back to the GH canvas, I cannot help but share your sentiments about the near total lack of empathy and caring demonstrated by far too many for BM’s character. It’s actually been quite appalling how nary an emotion has been expended upon his behalf, save for Sam and Monica. The poor guy was dropped faster than a hot potato by the likes of Sonny, Carly, et al, without a second thought when St. Jason returned from the deadzone…Only now has it finally dawned on these geniuses that his twin is also in… Read more »

I just love Tamara and would’ve accepted her back as Carly or this new character. There’s something Tamara has that really only Vanessa Marcil had previous to her which was chemistry with most of the male cast. They both have that confident sexuality about them and in daytime, that’s gold because this is suppose to be love in the afternoon. I’m not rooting for them to pair her up with any certain man or reunite her with Maurice Benard as a couple because they did that with Sarah Brown and it didn’t work. So, please GH keep an open mind… Read more »

in whatever capacity it is… not that GH was looking to recast Laura Wright character. ( i’m over her ) I’d vehemently tell Tamara… pay no mind to who’s who.. and act your arse off… as only she can. so excited for you

Tamara is going to ACT on a whole ‘nother level. with Billy Miller

I hope Free is the one who played Billy Abbott. He is just not Jason.
Steve is the one and only Jason Morgan. I think when he sees her he(Billy) will start to get his old memories back. Then the real Jason can have his life back. I don’t like Sam with the one she’s with now and he is nothing like Jason

I saw this coming a mile away. Drew(Billy) is getting a past life. He’s Oscar’s dad. Remember Helena called him soldier boy in the Jake story about the scarecrow. WE all know Jason was in Port Charles when Oscar was born in San Diego. Drew’s life is a mystery from toddler to 2 years ago. Kim thinks Jason is Drew cause according to this twin fairytale, Drew used to look like Jason.

The only downside IMO is that the writers continue to create situations where the Quartermaines are entwined with the Corinthos family. I’m sick of it! All these years waiting for the Q’s to return to their vibrant, wacky, full house of crazy and it’s still all mixed up with what Carly wants. UGH! Also, why couldn’t the Q’s be expanding their family with girls? Does it always have to be another boy/man added to the fold (Oscar, Drew, Jason, AJ, Dillon, Ned, Michael, Jake, Danny, Leo)? Scout is the only biological Quartermaine in that family, and she is not old… Read more »

I’ve been “pressing” for Robin Christopher, ex-Skye Quartermaine to return… if they could bring back Lila Rae with –

I love Robin Christopher! Plus, Skye was a redhead like Tracy. It’s time to bring the Quartermaine ladies bring glamour and excitement back to Port Charles (hopefully without all the mob stuff). Adding Skye to the mix could definitely liven up PC. Think of how she could interact with all the doctors at GH, Julian, Valentin, etc. And, instead of doing the boring thing of putting her at odds with Nina or Alexis, they should all become besties! Alexis needs some friends who aren’t associated with Sonny. Imagine Nina, Olivia, Alexis and Skye together having a great time while Carly… Read more »

That’s right, Karen…great memory. It’s those little remarks that sometimes hold the clues. I always thought Helena was up to her eyeballs in this…..but, it could also be Faison—or both, working together. Helena is presumably dead; has Faison been doing her dirty work? Is he Andre’s experiment’s ‘funder’? Shay did say this would be the best possibility….Faison and Andre….the mad, mad scientists. Helena had the most to gain from this diabolical ‘brew’….as I understand from her history with Alexis, the ultimate vendetta was a life of misery for Alexis. What better way to exact her revenge than upon her daughter,… Read more »

Love her! Absolutely adored her as Carly. I didn’t think anyone would be able to fit Sarah Joy Brown’s shoes and then Tamara stepped in and it was seamless. Perfect!

I’ve been looking forward to her return in any capacity and I’m just glad she’s back. I have confidence that whatever the writers have conjured up for her she’ll fly…

(kinda miss her blonde hair…but then she’d REALLY look like Nell’s mom!)

I wasn’t watching regularly when she was on but Rebecca, I was very impressed. She was terrific–poised and strong. Just what Sonny and Carly need to spar with. I know her recognizing “DREW” doesn’t mean anything new, but for a moment I was hopeful that Sonny, Carly, Robin, Diane would have to eat their words and regret abandoning Billy/Jason (or “that guy married to Sam”, as he’s now known.) But no such luck yet.

Hi Soaphound…Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving! Ha! It would be interesting if Steve Burton was Drew. Oh how worth it would be just to see Sonny and Carly tank. Diane? She was quite the biatch to him. And Robin? Not nasty…but rather insensitive/cold..considering he took her place in the elevator and risked his life to save her and her unborn child!!!! I think upon fear of death from irate viewers they may have chickened out changing “history.” LOL…I’m ready to go with the flow however it turns out.

Oh Rebecca, it never ends. Yesterday when Carly FINALLY admitted that Billy/Jason has had the rug pulled from under him also, did you see Sonny’s face? Practically a shrug! He couldn’t care less. This is a friend? If someone had saved my life twice, and Robin’s, I hope I’d be more loyal, not to mention grateful! The way they worship SB’s Jason is pathetic and selfish. I’m fast losing hope that Billy will be treated better (though thank heaven for Monica); maybe Spinelli can offer some compassion. Off topic, I’ve not yet seen EMPIRE, though I’m a fan of Taraji,… Read more »

Hey Soaphound…LOL. Those puppy dog eyes on Billy…gotta feel for him! That’s not to say I don’t like Steve Burton and his Jason. I do. I always have. And I think he’s been great since his return. But that doesn’t take away how horribly I feel for Billy’s character; I really feel such empathy for him. Billy, too, is giving an incredible performance as little boy lost…or big man freaking out…or boy/man so sad/scared/confused/hurt…holding on for dear life. Literally…in the sense of the life he’s built with Sam. Yes. It does appear that, unless there’s a huge twist and Burton… Read more »

Rebecca, sorry to keep harping on this but after today’s (Thursday) show, I need to vent. Carly now threatening Billy/Jason is bad enough, but I even hear strains of Spinelli (referring to Billy as “the stranger” and investigating Andrew on Diane’s underhanded orders) making hints of “illegal” use of Jason’s money to buy Derek Wells Publishing and even Scout’s being turned over to SB/Jason as well. Well, why not…the whole city is being turned over to him already. I know I’m overreacting, but not by much. I’m on Saint Jason overload. In the long run, BM will be better off… Read more »

Spinelli was annoyingly adorable, as usual. I love how he loves Jason. But he really was very sensitive to Billy/Drew’s feelings; much more so than all the others that spent the last two years with him…Carly, Sonny, Robin, Diane…those he risked his life for several times. But Spinelli? He’s got a heart of gold… If no surprise twist occurs and all stays as it is: Steve Burton/Jason, Billy Miller/Drew, I… Read more »

This is no surprise. I bet many figured out that Tamara would be Kim and Jason6 would be Andrew, Oscar’s father. Hope this is how it plays out. It would allow for BM to stay in the role of Jason and SB to stay on the screen as Andrew.

Satan
Guest
Satan

That’s not what that scene meant at all. Kim recognized Jason as “Drew” because she knew Drew back in 2003 when he looked like Jason, and she had no idea he had a twin brother. Since she’s supposedly been in town a few months, she could have literally walked right by the real Drew on the sidewalk and not recognized him, as he now has Billy Miller’s face. And because Drew has no memory of his own real life, he wouldn’t have recognized her either. Hopefully that will change if he spends some time with her. And hopefully she will… Read more »

Well said, Satan. I think the GH writers threw that out there as a red herring. I think the only acceptable outcome will be for Burton’s Jason to turn out to be Jason Morgan. I realize a lot of folks harbor this belief that Miller’s Jason was Jason before the car accident and Burton’s Jason is the Jason who existed after the car accident. This possibility initially made sense to me, however, I then realized that such a scenario would have to twist and distort the past stories and wouldn’t pay fidelity to character history. There’s some insane rabid fan… Read more »

True that, Satan….but, what if, by a twist of ‘fate’, this imbroglio is soooo up there on Mars, that the two Jasons are not twins?
I suggested this from day one; yet, I buried my head in the sand because many naysayed my comment……I am no expert on all that is GH….sooo…..
Your reply makes all the sense in the world, and I agree….but, GH is not the real world. The atmosphere has its own unworldly, physical elements, with its citizens having their own mental elements, LOL.

Harry…Aside from the fact that we learned today that Billy Miller is Drew (unless there’s STILL some surprise at the end of all this)…of course he could have played Stone Cold in all the character’s stoic glory. It doesn’t matter what role Billy Miller played on another soap…or how exuberant his last character was. He’s an actor. They play the role as its written. Robin Williams played Mork…and he played dramatic roles equally well. Billy doesn’t have to play the “life of the party.” It’s a new role. I’ve heard Drew might have “anger issues.” It would seem odd because… Read more »

I think Oscar been a Quartermaine could be very interesting story-wise because he could interact with a lot of different characters on the show.For example i could see Monica reaching out to Oscar because he could be sort of her grandson because she could think of Jason and Drew as both her sons.

Love this comment, Patrick. Of course I agree with your every word,. Yes, Miller’s Jason and Sam are completely lackluster on screen.
And yes, Monica has been compelling and touching playing the mother who is not torn between two sons, but rather, loves them both unconditionally while recognizing and appreciating their unique character traits.

Tamara should had been named Cassie…Cassie on GL was played by Laura W.,..this would had been an inside joke…we would had Laura who had played Cassie on GL playing Carly now on GH and Tamara who played Carly NO.2 on GH is back on GH playing Cassie opposite Laura who was once Cassie on GL now playing Carly against Tamara playing Cassie who was once playing Carly on GH-lol

James R. Poissant

Dear God, no!!! I can take Tamara in a new role but I’m not sure I can Steve as Drew. This has been so hard for me trying to be impartial as to who’s Jason and who’s Drew before Steve came back but now that he is, i can’t take him as anyone other than Jason. The show really is that good now though.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

James R. Poissant…Jason and Drew are twins; Billy’s character looked like Burton before the accident. Thus, Kim thinks Steven’s character is the man she was involved with, Drew.

I still think Billy is Jason Quartermaine; Steve is Jason Morgan. (who was born Drew.) Then, they were switched. Billy lived as Drew…until now.

LOL. It’ll all work out one way or another. And hopefully we’ll have two twins stay in Port Charles and Oscar…and we will see the Qs rise up from the ashes. (If only somehow AJ came back, too.)

She looks even better now than she did years ago while playing Carly, I think I am going to like Kim.
Interesting she called Jason “Drew.” I can only imagine it’s because Miller’s Jason had the same face back when Kim knew him. Burton’s Jason doesn’t remember Kim so that could be telling.
Of course if they manipulated Andrew’s memory banks they would not have him programmed to remember Kim so honestly, we viewers don’t know what to think at this point.

You will find out this next week according to the writers they have decided not to drag it out because I personally think MB runs the show over there Burton will stay as Jason but this does not cheat Miller out of tons of storyline he seems to finally be awake again the old Miller I adored on Y&R

Andrew Hass
Guest
Andrew Hass

In a way maybe Billy Miller would rather play Drew than Jason because as of now Drew is like an open book since we know nothing about his past.So the show could come up with anything they want about Drew’s past without having to rewrite anything that the viewers already know about Drew.As for Jason, the show is sort of in a corner with him because they can’t rewrite his past since the viewers know Jason’s past.So with Drew, the show can do whatever they want with him

Hopefully Kim will get a job at General Hospital and stick around long term, there are so many potential people she could be paired with. Obviously Drew will be Oscar’s dad, but there’s still the question of which twin is Drew and which is Jason.

Having Tamara back is awesome, I just hope they’re able to formulate long-lasting story for her character and not have her turn into a dud like Nelle, Nina, Hayden and other new characters they’ve brought in recently.

I think it’s too soon to judge the character of Kim Nero.However i do think the character is interesting because she’s not afraid to voice her opinion about certain things.Plus even if Kim turns out to be bad i think her saving grace might be that she loves her son.So i’m wondering if going forward Kim takes actions to make her son is happy even if it makes people unhappy.For example maybe Kim takes steps to make sure the Jason she wants to be Oscar’s father ends up that way.

And just as this Devil predicted, Kim instantly mistook Jason for her old boyfriend Drew (I’m assuming “boyfriend” applies here, since it doesn’t sound like they were married, given Oscar’s previous mentions of his father). Hopefully she will believe Jason when he tells her that he is not Drew, then somebody can bring her to the actual Drew, and maybe she can help him find at least that piece of his life. If Drew can establish where he was in 2003 – San Diego – and where he went after that (given the time, I’m guessing he shipped out to… Read more »

I’m wondering Kim thinks Drew is dead or something.That could be why Kim didn’t want to talk to Oscar about his dad since she think he’s dead.Also if Drew did ship out maybe it was before he learned Kim was pregnant and so he didn’t know he had a child.Also i’m the fact that Kim is a doctor means she interact with a lot of different characters on the show and not just a certain few.Plus i don’t think it was revealed what kind of doctor Kim is.

Kim is an OBGYN. Rumors are predicting a special connotation or foreshadowing about that. Oscar may not be her bio son, etc. Guess we’ll see.

Whoever took Drew may not have wanted anyone in his life looking for him.So maybe they faked his death because if people thought he was dead they wouldn’t go looking for him.Also i keep thinking that eventually it’ll be revealed that BM Jason is the original one and SB Jason is Drew.Yes i know Andre said he was sent to Port Charles to watch over Drew but all he had was someone telling him that Jason he was sent to keep an eye on was Drew.So maybe whoever the mastermind is his or her plan was to send Drew to… Read more »

Didn’t like her then, don’t like her now…..no matter the character! I especially do not appreciate the notion that TB will most likely be paired with BM and that Oscar will apparently be his son. This is hardly a shocking choice for the bio-daddy…..After all the build-up to this reveal, I was hoping for something much more epic and dark! Overall, I could have done without another newbie character when we were just getting to the point where we were actually using the legacy ones after such a long while.

Not as of yet, Timmmbo, still on the holiday fast track, but hopefully, I shall be getting a respite in the next few days.,,,and catching up with my favorite MF posters!

I’m with you, on this, Shay…
Regardless…….I was thinking ( aside) that since we were graced with the pleasure of Liesl’s all-encompassing presence ( oh, joy and thank you, soap-gods); and, because Maxie and Nathan are
‘enceinte’, we will, likewise, be regaled with the identity of Nathan’s bio father…..grandpapa ( or Grossvater) will want to know as much as Grossmutter.

Another post vanished, Shay……I echo your words, as I was never into Tamara…..of course I did not know her as Carly, but I knew her as Reese on AMC, and Ava on Days. Can’t deny her talent…..just did not like the characters she played. As far as BM, I have had my misgivings from the onset, albeit my ideas are constantly parroted, LOL…..right or wrong. Phrases, idioms, punctuations…… I repeat, anything is possible……even the impossible task of infusing the real Jason’s plasma into the fake one…..it is a soap, afterall…..the twist is making us believe the obvious which is not… Read more »

Oh, tell me about it, CeeCeeGirl! I replied to both you (and the fabulous Phyllis!) on the Britt thread after a very hectic holiday weekend and my efforts proved equally for naught! Same old, same old….but hey, at least we can celebrate the return of our favorite ferocious femme, Dr. O.! All hail Liesl!!! Kathleen Gati has certainly not disappointed…I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every sublime moment of her reappearance in Port Charles—thus far! So many tantalizing tidbits thrown about by this simply smashing shady lady!! Yes! Sounds as though perhaps much of our previous supposition regarding Faison, Helena and our dastardly… Read more »

Yes, Shaybelle….I must admit, I am looking forward to seeing the Britt, Faison and Liesl ‘fracas’….bring it on!! ….rock ‘n roll, baby!! The best trio on GH.—- We need the diversion…..not liking the sanctimonious Griffin, albeit he is right about Julin. I cannot abide by this character ( though, I do like William). And, to take it further, I hope Alexis sticks to her guns and will not capitulate to her nether regions. Ha!! But, I ask, if TPTB’s plan is not to put tese two together, why bring him back? Alexis needs to regain her self-respect—-prove, mostly to herself,… Read more »

Eyeing….so many typos, Shay. PS. So, we know, according to Liesl, Victor is not Nathan’s father….we talked about this at length, you and I; yes? Who else? I wish he were; just to see Thaao on GH–he is so ‘misused’ on Days, as of late!! Sigh…. Is Liesl a fairly new character? Has she always been an absentee character? Just appearing occasionally, as needed? Who else could be a contender? Faison? That would make Britt and Nathan full siblings. Is it possible for the ‘funder’ to be completely unrelated ( not familially, but relating to The Jasons) to Helena and… Read more »

Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! You asked about Liesl? Oh…. she first popped up around the 50th anniversary year of GH when all the mask weirdness with Duke and Faison commenced. She was initially seen in her “Little Swiss Clinic of Horrors” when Robert, Anna and Luke passed through the place on their caper looking for Faison and Robin—and Obrecht actually put Scorpio in a coma for over a year which prevented him from telling the others that he has seen his daughter alive and well before she was moved elsewhere, after it had come to light that AJ had been in… Read more »

Thank you, Shay,
You have explained much. I wonder if this time around we will find out who Nathan’s father is?!?!
I found it weird that Nathan never really showed any interest in finding out, at least, I have never seen an ‘intense’ episode between mother and son on the subject of “Daddy”.
As far as Valentin being the father….I did think he fit the bill at the beginning. Now; he seems to be too passive….involved in mysterious dealings, which will most likely add up to nonsense.
Yet, who knows, really!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

You’re welcome, CeeCee! Just to clarifiy, I no longer think that Valentin will be revealed as Nathan’s father…On paper, he was once the perfect candidate, but that was before he appeared in the flesh in a much different guise than we originally expected. Nor will it be Faison…that would have been Liesl’s dream come true…bearing “Cesar Jr.!” Lol….No, the paternal bloodline for Nathan most likely shall lead to Jerry Jacks because I cannot see the writers coming up with a more exotic twist to this mystery….at this late date, expediency is of the essence and for that reason alone, Jerry… Read more »

Well, Shay, at least, we two are not the only repliers whose posts are swallowed by the soap phantom.
I guess you’re right about Jerry Jacks…..I know he’s a baddie, but he doesn’t turn me off as certain other characters do, LOL. And, neither does Faison, actually….I never tire of him or Liesl. What a couple!! The pair fills my heart with…with …gee, I don’t know. Mirth? LOL.
And, you are right about Faison. He wanted a son so badly, Liesl would never keep a son borne of their loins ( LOL), their own creation from him; Faison, her life’s obsession.

I am wondering if “Kim” is a good girl or bad? Is she attempting to say Jason is Oscar’s daddy? Is Dr. Bensch good or bad?

A classic beauty!

Good to see Tamara back home. She looked very comfortable in Sonny’s home too, almost made me think that Laura was playing Kim.

To bad Ingo is gone. Jax and Kim could have hooked up. Carly is jealous, she leaves Sonny, steals Jax, Kim and Sonny live happily ever after, for awhile!

But it will be fun reunion to see ex-Jax with ex-Lois/Quinn from when they were on GH. They were great together. Another GH loss.

Tamara has always been a strong performer and I imagine Kim will be an entertaining and interesting character. What is Kim’s past with Drew? Will Oscar turn out to be his son?

I barely remember her as Carly, but she’s a beautiful actress. She had a good first episode. What I loved most about the Thanksgiving episode was the ending where everyone gathered around Monica Quartermaine at the mansion with pizza. A GH tradition!

I was so disappointed when she left GH the first time. I’m hoping they don’t make her evil…somehow involved in the twin swap as some swirling theories around the internet are saying. If so, she’d eventually have an end date. I’m hoping they can make room for her on the canvas long term. Would hate for her to exit again. She’s THAT good!

I hope I can stand her better on GH, than the two parts she played on DOOL, as Nicole’s sister and Tripp’s mother, and Kayla’s tormentor.

When I first heard Tamara was returning to GH, I lacked enthusiasm because the role of Carly when she played it was Carly in her loud and reckless days. I must say I’m very impressed with how Tamara is play the role of Kim Nero. I think it will be an interesting character, even though there’s predictability in the full scope of her involvement with Drew coming to light.

Anna is Kim’s mother. Faison’s son and the Traitor are NOT the same person. Yeah, Peter August is Faison’s son and Nathan is also his son, but that’s simply an aside. Valentin said Anna had a daughter and the plot never said the Traitor was a male. Drew disappeared from the Navy Seals in San Diego around the same time Jason was ‘killed”. Coincidentally right after he met Dr. Kim Nero. Peter August and Kim Nero showed up in PC at about the same time – around the time when Jason was escaping and then finally free from the clinic… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
