The author’s opinions are his and his alone. They’re suitably scathing, fairly humorous, and normally bang on target.
Every fan has their own perspective about General Hospital, and Soap Hub is no different. We watched everything—the good, the ugly, and everything in between—for five days, and now we’re here to give you a helpful recap and a lighthearted analysis of the GH week that was.
General Hospital: A Critic’s Week In Review
First, Laura Collins (Genie Francis) was given an instant family thanks to Gordon Grey’s retconned sons. Then, previously established information regarding who knew what and when they knew it in the shooting of Hayden Barnes was confused or wholly rewritten. In order to establish Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) as Nina Reeves’s (Cynthia Watros) daughter, General Hospital’s top brass Chris and Dan/Dan and Chris tied themselves in knots. The less said about Ryan Chamberlin’s (Jon Lindstrom) as-yet-unknown progeny and the man child that Mac Scorpio (John J. York) may have had with Dominique, the better.
Now that Charlotte “Carly” Reese Roberts is still very much alive and well, General Hospital is portraying Carly Corinthos’ (Laura Wright) story of girlhood misery as if she hasn’t previously come to terms with it. Roberts arrived in Port Charles with the intention of exacting revenge. Is the entire cannon of this soap unsafe?
No, it’s not. Not when you have Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) recalling murdering a woman who it has been established died years later from a disease known as Blackwood’s Syndrome, or Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) referencing a past that he shouldn’t be able to remember because he is in possession of JASON MORGAN’S memories and not his own.
Chris and Dan/Dan and Chris might succeed in their endeavors one day. I plan to mock these clownish plot features brutally and regularly until then.
Further GH Musings
I was solidly on team Sonny, but now I want to see him and Dex bring Sonny to his knees. I had high hopes that Dex Heller (Evan Hofer), who had been siding with Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), would change his mind and support Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). Sigh.
- The Mad Hooker of Port Charles is definitely Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl), despite the fact that General Hospital has given the threat the official moniker The Hook.
