GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.

OLTL Alum Ryan Phillippe Weighs-In on Shocking Twist in Season Opener of ‘Big Sky’

Hold on to your seats! Last night’s highly-anticipated arrival of ABC’s new drama, Big Sky from David E, Kelley offered several shocking moments and surprises as the dark story took viewers down a twisty path as we were introduced to all the characters.

Throughout it’s promotional push the network has touted the series having three leads played by One Life to Live alum, and TV and motion picture star, Ryan Phillippe (Ex-Billy Douglas), along with Katheryn Winnick, and Kylie Bunbury

Turns out that was a set-up so viewers, who had spent the entire hour learning of the complex relationships of this threesome, and how they work together to begin to solve a crime of three young women who have gone missing and kidnapped   But then in the episode’s final moments, Phillippe’s character of PI Cody Hoyt is shot dead!

Ryan shared his thoughts on going into the series knowing his character would be killed-off right off the bat: “I was shocked certainly, and I think that’s also what made me so excited about it. So often in entertainment you can see what’s coming a month away, and to have moments in a series like this where it kind of takes your breath away, when you are absolutely shocked and did not see it coming, it’s exciting to me.”  Phillippe added: “I think it sends the message that in a series like this, no one is safe, so you really have to pay attention and hope that the people you love stick around.”

But will Phillippe’s Cody be seen on future episodes such as Milo Ventimigilia is seen on This Is Us?  Ryan told a press panel: “That’s not the last you’ll see or hear of him.”

Look for Cody to definitely appear in flashbacks, while Deadline is reporting that the actor will be seen in several more installments of the TV drama.

In story, Cody was shot by State Trooper Rick Legarski (John Carroll Lynch) who is covering-up being at the epicenter of sex trafficking ring in Montana.  While viewers saw a bloody ending, we never saw an image of a dead Cody either, we can only assume.

Did you watch the season premiere of Big Sky? What do you think of network TV becoming more like some of the hottest shows on cable with shocking and unexpected twists right off the bat as the series begin? Share your thoughts below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: As Finn’s Life is on the Line, A Heartbroken Anna Apologizes to Chase “I’m So Sorry”

Monday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it another round of twins Anna and Alex Devane (Finola Hughes) going at each other with guns a-blazing, as Alex has really taken to the dark side including; duping her sister and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and now holding a pregnant Maxie (Kirsten Storms) hostage.

Meanwhile back at General Hospital, Finn’s (Michael Easton) condition takes a nose-dive just as he was trying to deliver key information to Peter (Wes Ramsey) about Alex and Anna  … and that Anna wanted it to be true that she was his birth-mother, not Alex.  As Portia (Brook Kerr) is trying to keep Finn alive, who should enter? His brother, the cop, Chase (Josh Swickard), who is beside himself seeing his big brother like this.

Valentin who is also recovering at the hospital wants to go after Alex; not knowing what is about to happen.  Robert (Tristan Rogers) learns that Finn is being rushed into surgery and that his condition and survival is based on his heart.

 

On the Haunted Star, Anna and Alex exchange gunfire until Alex is shot, but she is not dead.  Later, on the deck of the yacht, a badly-wounded Alex reappears. She tells Anna they both knew one of them would have to die someday, and shares a cryptic, yet meaningful message that she thought Anna would go back for Peter when he was a child and raise him, but she didn’t, and she has to live with that.  As Anna goes to see if Maxie is alright, Alex rolls herself off the deck into the water.  Anna comes back with Maxie and believes her sister must be dead.

Elsewhere, an overcome Chase heads to the hospital chapel and prays for his brother as he breaks down in tears.  Robert calls Jackie (Kim Delaney) to fill her in on Finn, and she in turn calls his father, Gregory (the incoming Gregory Harrison to the role).  After Anna and Maxie arrive safe and sound at the hospital, Peter runs to Maxie, while a distraught Anna walks by Valentin and Robert.

Next, in the final scene of the episode, Anna joins Chase in the chapel.  She is grief-stricken, guilt-ridden and heartbroken that because of her and her sister, Finn’s life is on the line as she tells Chase, “I’m so sorry.”   They join hands to find the strength to get through this.  It was in these moments that both Finola Hughes and Josh Swickard brought the emotional heart to the story.

So, what did you think of the final scene featuring Finola and Josh?  Do you think Alex will return?  Comment below.
