GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: The Identity of ‘The Hook’ Revealed

In the first all-new episode of 2023, General Hospital made a ‘killer’ reveal on Tuesday as several characters were put into turmoil in life and death situations.

Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who is waiting at Pier 27 for her way out of Port Charles to enact her plan to disappear, instead winds up being at the right place at the wrong time.

Elsewhere at the pier, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is fending off ‘The Hook” who is taking swipes at her.  Josslyn manages to push ‘The Hook’ away, but ends up tripping on her high heels!  ‘The Hook’ moves in to kill Josslyn, but in comes Britt to save the day! She and ‘The Hook” go at it and just when the killer is going to strike Britt, a shot is fired.  It’s Dex (Evan Hofer)! He has arrived on the scene. ‘The Hook’ takes off.

Next, Britt wants to call the police, but Dex stops her.  When the detective and the cops eventually show up, Britt tells them she fought off ‘The Hook’, who was attacking someone else. Britt says she doesn’t know where the other victim went to, as we cut to Dex who has taken Josslyn to his apartment.  Then, one thing leads to another, and Dex and Josslyn can’t resist their attraction to one another and have sex.

Back at the ‘Haunted Star’, just as Trina (Tabyana Ali) and Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) are about to kiss, Esme (Avery Pohl) shows up and passes out! She has hypothermia from jumping off the parapet at Wyndemere and landing in the steely waters below.  When Spencer gets Esme to the hospital, he calls Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who is with Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), and they realize they are in big trouble with Esme landing at GH alive, pregnant, and with hypothermia. Will she implicate Liz and Nik as her kidnappers? Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) shows up at GH, and wants to question Esme, believing at this point she is more than likely ‘The Hook’.

Next, we see ‘The Hook” with a bloody arm, who then takes off her mask revealing herself to be … wait for it … Heather Webber!

After the shooting and almost being killed by ‘The Hook’, Britt decides to go back to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati).  The two down some shots.  However, when Britt removes her coat, Liesl sees blood on Britt’s chest, and the next thing you know, Britt crashes to the floor …  and we fade to black.

So, what do you think of the reveal of Heather Webber as ‘The Hook’? Do you think GH just killed-off Britt since Kelly Thiebaud is exiting the series? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
