At the very end of last Friday’s cliffhanger for General Hospital, two major plot developments occurred. First, as Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) is about to go back to school she is greeted at the door by Parker (Ashley Jones), who turns out as many fans suspected is a woman.
This sent GH fans on social media, and on messages board to ask, and some to hope, that GH is about to reveal that Kristina is a lesbian. This would be an interesting twist, especially to see how Kristina’s parents: Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) would ultimately handle the news. Will GH embark on some type of coming out story utliziing the talents of Lexi Ainsworth? That remains to be seen. Clearly, when Kristina had a chance to come clean to her mother that she failed her last semester, and then having some kind of apparent liaison with Professor Parker, Kristina dodged any confrontation or admission, and said she would be back for Alexis’ wedding to Julian (William deVry). This happened prior to being stopped on her way out by Parker herself.
Elsewhere, Jason (Billy Miler), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), and Franco (Roger Howarth) are now all on to the disturbing drawings of Jake (James Nigbor). For Jason, the one that was most concerning was Jake’s drawing of Sam (Kelly Monaco). While the three of them are meeting at GH to discuss Jake’s mental state, Sam has headed over to Elizabeth’s to talk to her about her conversation with Franco. But when she gets there, she finds the window shattered, Jake’s finger bleeding, and starts to put two and two together that he is the one that broke the window. Jake runs away and downstairs, where Sam follows. Next, Sam tumbles from the top of the staircase to the ground. We fade to black.
So, will Sam’s fall bring Jason and her closer together? Will Jake try to somehow kill Sam? Did Helena (Constance Towers) do something to alter his mind while in captivativity, or is she pulling the strings from “beyond the grave”?
As for Kristina and Parker: Do you hope it turns out that Kristina is a lesbian? Are you interested to see how the relationship plays out between the two women? How do you think Sonny and Alexis would react to the news of Kristina being with another woman? Does GH need to pick up the pace of their scenes and or storytelling, when often times it feels like the show is slowed way down, just before it picks back up?
