After all the contract negotiations, being written-out of story, and now being written back in, GH fan favorite, William deVry this week is back on the set of General Hospital filming new episodes of the ABC daytime drama series as Julian Jerome,.

When last scene, Julian was sent away to do time in the slammer for his crimes.  Now when deVry does reappear on GH, although no airdate has been given as of yet, Julian will to have a lot on his mind.

This week, viewers learned that Jason (Billy Miller) has purchased Derek Wells Media from Jerome, and he still has some patch work do with his family, and his lady love, Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  But this time around is it going to be Julexis as the romantic end game, or will these two once and for all call it quits?

Many fans celebrated deVry’s return this week with presents, balloons, and donuts to his ABC Prospect Studios dressing room in Los Angeles.

You can see a video slideshow of all that Will received and his comments in this nifty video first posted at ABC Soaps In Depth after the jump.  Then let us know, are you excited to know Julian will be back on the canvas in the near future? Comment below.

@CeeCee….Per your suggestion that Dr. Bensch must be on the “up-and-up” in order to snag Alexis…Knowing her as we do, I ask you, would she have him any other way???? (Wink, wink…..)

Good thing he DIDNT! He was protecting Alexis. He loves her and she loves him

Lizzie

Um, wasn’t it a RUSE?

The writers already explained that he WASNT going to killed her AND he saved her from her drinking and on the bridge. Julian has more than proved that he loves and adores Alexis

Harry
Guest

Lizzie, they tried to clean up that mess after the fact but the damage had been done.
It was not a ruse at the time it transpired. We saw the murderous gleam in Julian’s eyes as he held Alexis’s neck. Prior to this he framed her for a murder he committed and that had nothing to with Olivia Jerome’s demands.
I am tired of damage control writing which seeks out to redeem murdering scum bags.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I said this before….the ruse was an afterthought by the PTB. When the ‘incident’ happened, Julian had murder on his mind. His actions were precise and determined ( great acting, I must say)….. William should have won an Emmy just by that scene. He could have whispered a word of endearment, told her not to worry, in Alexis’ ear if his intentions were not to ‘sacrifice’ her at the whim of a sister with a dislocated brain. No surprise there, that trait runs in the family. And, if his intentions were so noble, why did he allowed the blame of… Read more »

Yes, Lizzie. It was a ruse. There are people who still don’t want to go with the story line…LOL. Seems more people were willing to believe OJ than a fictional character who did what he did to outmaneuver his diabolical sister.

Rissa
Guest
Rissa

Well…last winter, the writers revealed it was all a fakeout. Julian was trying to appease Liv’s bloodlust & keep Liv from killing Alexis. Julian planned to let Alexis go & to fake his own death instead.

Yes, it’s alot of drama and fuckery for Julian & Alexis to overcome. But that should keep the story interesting. Plus, the actors have crazy chemistry. Enough to overcome anything.

Rebecca1

I agree, Rissa!

Yeah, and guess TPTB will give him as prominent a place in s/l as they gave and are giving Ava in their continuing (albeit fruitless) effort to “redeem” them. Can’t!
And Alexis has many possibilities (should the writers allow) with James DePaiva’s character. Would make an intriguing match. But I guess that’s just obvious to us viewers.

Agree. Two talented actors with great chemistry. They messed up when they painted them into a corner.

I’m confused by how we overlook the many transgressions of St Sonny #HowsAJDoing? But Julian is irredeemable.

Bring it on

Celia
Guest

Not ‘we’, Tomas, my friend. Most do not tolerate Sonny….’Tis TPTB that have made him sacrosanct; impeccable; father of the year; ‘bestest’ friend anyone can ask for; immaculate; impeccable; loving husband. ….. you noticed the halo, yes? Sonny spent two minutes in jail for murdering AJ, in cold blood. Since when are murderers pardoned? Only in PC. Julian and Alexis have one thing in common. The bed. Hey, I’m not knocking that, by any means….but, but, there’s a lot more to a marriage than THAT. I may be not remembering, but I cannot even think of one time where these… Read more »

Doesn’t make sense for Cassandra to dip into JJ’s return storyline. Once he is out of Pettonville, he will have eyes for Alexis who is a collagen lip injection away from running into the creepy loving arms of Dr Bensch who really has eyes for her former niece, Kiki. Cue Julian to the rescue to grab them from the clutches of Dr David for all to see including his ebony desire Jordan! Now go make up the dialogue, that’s the story that is waiting to be written.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, I’m not disputing what you say, Sam. They probably will be paired again. It’s a matter of opinion, a feeling. I like them both….just not together. I agree that the doctor is creepy….a challenge? Maybe TPTB should go a different route. I have only seen Alexis with Julian. All I’m saying is that I would like to have the privilege of seeing Alexis interact with another guy, ….know what I mean? I applaud the sexual attraction—hey, without it, we’re stuck in a blah relationship. I would never have married anyone without that burning fire. Needless to say; I would… Read more »

Well i care what happens with Alexis ANDDD Julian.

And the fact is these two are the loves of each others lives. Why should they take it in another direction when they’re best TOGETHER? Ive seen them TRY to pair Julian and Alexis elsewhere and the chem test NEVER work because the majority of fans only want them together

Ive been an Alexis FF for as long as ive watching GH and Julian is her true love. Thats what i want for her. I want this repaired. NO thanks to anything else

Shay
Guest

@CeeCee…I hold out no hope or expectation whatsoever that these perpetual adolescents can/will suddenly turn over new leaves and act like responsible, mature adults….such is simply not within the realm of possibility, especially for Alexis. This is a woman who is so enslaved by her own obsessive physical desires that she has become totally devoid of all common sense and basic self-respect. Apparently, nothing else matters to her but the gargantuan sexual gratification which she so obviously derives from her repeatedly over-exaggerated excursions into the erotic with Julian…..Now then, that’s quite the opposite of “normal,” wouldn’t you say? What we… Read more »

Finally! I’ve missed Julian and am happy the show found a way to keep Will DeVry. I hope Julexis is the endgame because they are amazing together, and this recent forced pairing of Alexis and Dr. Bensch isn’t doing it for me.

Plus, as a character, Julian is one of the most well-developed on the canvas, and I believe he can be redeemed. If we’re supposed to accept Sonny and Carly being redeemed for their heinous actions, then so can Julian and Ava, for that matter.

Rachel

I know the couple is popular with many, but, he is a murderer ( leopards do not change their spots…feral til death do us part)…regardless of chemistry….which I do not see. Afternoon trysts do not prove a thing. I just thought of something: I would immensely appreciate it if TPTB make Julian Oscar’s Daddy. I think Alexis should be freed of the bonds that bind her to Julian….fettered to a cold-blooded hoodlum. This pull will be her downfall for the umpteenth time. If the ‘bosses’ had any sense, this attraction between her and Dr. Bensch should be given a well-anticipated… Read more »

Celia,

You said it yourself, this couple is popular with many? Why would they ignore that to go the boring route? That doctor is a recurring character that Alexis isn’t even attracted to 😀 julain is the love of her life. She was always gonna end up with him.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Sam…Whilst this couple is apparently popular with the social media crowd, that doesn’t necessarily translate to the GH audience overall. There are still plenty of individuals who don’t go to Twitter or Facebook to post their opinions regarding all things Port Charles…forums such as this one are where we choose to voice our views and air our grievances about this particular soap, and I certainly see no great indication that the vast majority here desires a “Julexis” (God, that moniker makes me cringe…) reunion. In fact, many of us are dead-set against it!

Hi Sam… I, too, love Alexis and Julian. And I agree, there are much more than not who are fans of Alexis and Julian. Social media (twitter, facebook, etc) have huge numbers. Nancy Grahn has close to 170k fans on her Twitter and Facebook. So, if we are to gauge fan reaction, there are infinitely more viewers on social media who are FOR Alexis and Julian together. And, as such, are willing to suspend disbelief and go with the “fix” to Julian’s story. If they can make him a psycho wife would-be killer and fans believed it…it would follow they… Read more »

Very happy he’s back! I’d like to see Sam lose the attitude…if she can accept Sonny and Carly after all they’ve done…and can forgive herself for sleeping with her mom’s husband…she should be able to believe that what he wrote to Alexis was true…that he’d never have gone through with hurting her and it was all a ruse to appease Olivia Jerome and keep his family safe.

I understand your view, nancy .Me? I get more turned off by actosr when they espouse views I find intolerable. Mel Gibson would be an example. An actor coming off a bit self-important? Dunno…I think a lot of them are. Personally, I’d never plunk down hundreds of dollars to go to one of their “meet and greets” or subsidize one of their creative projects like some who have asked for money on a go-fund-me page. In my opinion that’s just banking (pun intended) on fan fervor LOL…would they fund me? At least Will’s feelings were direct. I also admire his… Read more »

Absolutely, Nancy! Of course, I pretty much feel that way about the majority of celebrities these days….too many seem to think that espousing their personal views on everything from soup to nuts, and especially, politics, makes them relevant, special and important, when all it really does is turn off and/or alienate at least half of their potential fanbase. That’s just plain ludicrous!

If they can turn Luke’s rape off Laura into the love sorry of the century (hated that), then all bets are off and anyone gets redemption. Sonny and Jason are MURDERERS and they are always romanticized and except from their acts. So I think the character of Julian, whose actions were explained as a ruse, can be cut a break. William deVry is a strong, charismatic actor. I’m glad they didn’t stupidly lose him like they’ve done to too many others. Now hopefully the writers can write a decent sorry!

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
