THIS WEEK: Elizabeth Hendrickson To Make GH Debut As Margaux

Photo credit: JPI Studios

Watch for your first look of Elizabeth Hendrickson in her new role as Margaux on all new episodes of General Hospital.

The former Y&R Alum, who has been previously Daytime Emmy-nominated, will begin her GH run as a prosecutor in Carly’s (Laura Wright) case.  Fans have been very excited about the addition of Hendrickson to the ABC daytime drama series, because she will be reunited with many of her former castmates from All My Children and Y&R, including Billy Miller (Drew), Will deVry (Julian), and more.

Margaux is introduced when Carly’s arraignment arrives, in which she is dealing with the fallout from Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) tumble down the stairs, and for which she is being accused.  Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) will face-off against tough new adversary, Margaux.

Shelly Altman, co-head writer of General Hospital, told Soap Opera Digest, “Margaux doesn’t believe that Carly was insane, and of course, she’s right. She doesn’t like anyone using the court to their advantage in this way.”

So, are you excited for the debut of Elizabeth Hendrickson as Margaux?  Do you think she will be a tough-as-nails prosecutor? Do you think she might have a heart of gold underneath, or do you think she’ll be out for blood?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I am SO excited she is joining GH. I loved her as Chloe on YR until the show wrote her completely off the rails and continually destroyed the romantic pairings she had chemistry with (Billy, Ronan in particular). It will be fun to watch EH play a lawyer and I hope she has scenes with Billy Miller’s Drew. Hendrickson and Miller’s chemistry was FIRE back in the day on YR.

Can’t wait for Elizabeth to begin. Love the Margaux moniker as well. ANYTHING to relieve us from Sonny/Carly oblivion and that Griffin/Kiki debacle. Her first scene with Billy/Drew should be electric..may their paths cross soon!

Welcome Margaux!! ( Does mine eyes well to see you, Elizabeth).
I hope she will be tough enough to show her womanly ‘true grit’, albeit no one should be locked up for a crime one has not committed.
However, it’s fulfilling ( to the rafters) to watch, with glee, Carly go through a grueling time of it. Shoe-on-the-other-foot scenario. Kismet? Divine intervention? How Madame Defarge of me!!

Oh Celia, you had to mention Carly’s shoes. Now I’m gonna be wondering what size clodhoppers Pentonville will issue her!

Ha! Soaphound….I knew you’d get my shoe hint. I could have used another expression, but, I thought of you and wanted to gift you with my nonsense.
Thanks for replying.
I do believe Pentonville only has laces-free boat shoes. Very large.
You are hilarious.

She is Kim’s sister and Oliver’s birth mother…this plot was used a few years ago when Nathan found out Aunt Lisel was his mom and not her sister…and Kiki sleeping with Griffen, her mom’s boyfriend is just a reversal of Ava sleeping with Kiki’s boyfriend Griffen…and ReRon isnt even the writer here!!!!

You are most likely right, Jimmy….as usual. As I mentioned on the other site, Kiki will be pregnant with Grif’s baby. That’ll stop the shenanigans between Ava and him. His head is so full of sanctimonious and hypocritical drivel, it’ll be hard to accept his descent to the world of ‘sinners’. That’ll bring him down a peg or two. However, Jimmy—there’s always an ‘however’…. I like the idea of him and Kiki. I will always love Ava, but I do not stomach the relationship as strongly as I don’t like Anna’s and Finn’s. The question is….will Griffin be man enough… Read more »

I love Liz and excited to see her work. I have given up on Frank and his lack of love for GH history and writing for current “Non-Valentini” characters. I just hope he doesnt waste Liz like he has wasted Michelle! Plus, other than the hate filled yenta fest known as the “View”, daytime on ABC is becoming extinct!

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
