46 March 11th, 2016 GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Griffin Want To Tell Anna? What Should Helena Leave To Her Enemies In The Will Reading?

On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, several stories are about to have a junping off point when they are revealed.

Unfortunately for fans of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers will need to wait till Monday to find out the ramifications since GH is preempted today.  In story, Dr. Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen) has come to see Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  He admits he has been following her.  After first being a little unnerved by it, Griffin asks Anna if they can meet publicly so he can tell her something.  But then he is called away to the hospital in the issue of Tracy’s (Jane Elliot) brain biopsy and condition, that he believes is not going to turn out to be Dr. Mayes (Matt Riedy) diagnosis of cancer, but something else.

Meanwhile, Anna calls Andre (Anthony Montgomery) asks him to meet with her.  She questions if he knows anything about Griffin, and why he might be following her.  Andre assures Anna to his best knowledge Griffin is a stand up guy.  Anna feels like she may have met Griffin somehow years ago, but can’t put her finger on it.

After Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) stands up to Dr. Mayes, he tells Griffin he wants him to figure out what is going on with his mother’s condition.  Griffin says he has seen something similar to this in Mexico.  Brad (Parry Shen) later happens by and tells Griffin he will help him gain access to the results of Dr. Mayes biopsy of Tracy.

Meanwhile at Wyndemere, Laura (Genie Francis) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) are preparing themselves for the reading of Helena’s will! Sam (Kelly Monaco) arrives for the reading as well, and after getting into a bitch fight with Hayden (Rebecca Budig) over her investigated the new Mrs. Cassadine’s background eventually speaks one on one to Laura.

It is in this scene that Laura apologizes to Sam for her part in covering up Jason’s (Billy Miller) identity.  After the women come to terms with that moment in time,  Sam reveals to Laura that Helena put a curse on her with her dying breath, something which Laura reveals she knows about all to well.   Laura reveals to Sam that Helena cursed her as well.   Later, when Sam meets up with Jason, and after he leaves, Sam realizes he left behind the plaque from the Quartermaine crypt with his name on it.  She touches it and Sam cuts her finger on it.  Is the Cassadine curse beginning to play out?

So, what do you think Griffin is about to tell Anna?  And while many have already read the previews that Helena leaves certain “gifts” behind for those attending her will reading, what would you have Helena leave behind for Sam, Laura, Nikolas, and others?   Share your thoughts and suggestions in the comment section below!

    Griffin wants to tell Anna that he is her son, or her nephew. He is Leora’s twin, stolen at birth? Or, Alex’s child? Or Lindsey’s?
    Baddie Charlotte absconded him and hid him somewhere, or gave him away.
    Will David Hayward resurface? I may be way off base, but I know there is a connection between them….a familial connection. That’s why Dr. Munro is so familiar to Anna.

    He could be Aiden Devane, having had facial reconstructive surgery. Yes, yes, yes…..rubbing my hands together, at the prospect/possibilities….doing a happy dance!!!!!! If some of the AMC’s beloved characters will return, whether recasts or not, would be my pleasure!

    I’m really hoping griffin is related to Anna somehow Anna needs family in town.. Hope it’s not something dopey like duke incarnated or something like that, it’s not going to fly. I’m telling you griffin looks like a young Tristan Rogers. As for the other plots I hope Helena gives Liz some money for kidnapping little jake.

    GH has become very transparent, and that means no suspense or mystery, just transparent..
    Know what’s going to happen–
    The second Anna said he looked familiar, I knew he was of Duke’s DNA..

    0ooh when Tracy had her 1st sign of illness I said;
    It was a parasitic brain infection, worms in the brain thing..

    CeeCee replied

    You did, su. I remember…and so did I….as told by my husband. Malignant, benign or an infection. But, you were very sure it was an infection. You called it.
    Timmm did suggest that Larry put something in Tracy’s drink….could have been some kind of fetid additive.

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, su,
    I though that today’s episode held some suspense. Don’t you agree? Obviously, Griffin in a towel, sporting a scar on his lower left part of his abdomen was done for a reason. We were meant to see that…mystery and suspense.
    I agree it is not the salivating suspense some of us expect, but I got to see Griffin’s exposed bod, again. Maybe next time he’ll be wearing just a loin cloth. ….KIDDING!!
    Also, the name Griffin Fitzgerald Munro really seemed to have jarred Anna, albeit she made an Herculean effort to be impassive. That added a little suspense for me. So, Anna knows a Fitzgerald from her past. That interests me.
    We were also treated to an innocent but charged interlude between Griffin and Maxie ( love her and those booties). Will something between them develop when Maxie finds out Nathan lied to her? ….waiting for Claudette!

    Some reports are that he is Duke’s son, from another mother. If true, that’ll hurt!!!

    Very interesting, Tristan….so many possibilities.

    CeeCee replied

    You called it, Tristan. You are right.
    I must say, though, Anna seems to welcome these news, in a bittersweet way. I guess it hurts in a different way. She regrets neither father or son ever met. Sad.

    Like i said under a different posting…he is her son or her sister’s son…

    So did I, Jimmy. But, which sister? Anna had/has two. Alex and Lindsey, if I am not mistaken.

    Reply

    Tristan replied

    They cannot mention Anna’s family from AMC, because of the Prospect Park lawsuit.

    su0000 replied

    ahhhh Anna has sisters.. I did not that..
    hmmm then he may not be of Duke DNA ..
    but geez how far back are they digging to grab a sister?
    The doc. is about 30? so going back 30 years?

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Didnt know there was two…thats interesting to know.

    CeeCee replied

    @jimh.
    Hey, Jimmy.
    I double checked with my Gran and she said that Anna had two half sisters; Alex and Lindsey (Aidan Devane Turner’s) mother. The sisters were borne of three different mothers but had the same father.
    Charlotte Devane was Alex’s mother, and she was a witch, according to my grandmother. LOL.
    Charlotte did so many despicable things; my Gran speculates that Charlotte could have kidnapped Griffin as a baby. So, he could be offspring to one/any of the sisters.

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Thank you and your gran for that info about Anna’s sisters…i didnt watch much of AMC when Anna was there and barely remember much of her storyline-so unlike me…but yet i can remember stuff from the 60s and 70s when i was soooooooo young…lol

    CeeCee replied

    @Tristan.
    Hey, Tristan,
    Of course you are right….I forgot all about that, Tristan. It would have been an ok premise, though, no. ……and I would have absorbed every gripping moment if Lindsey were not dead after all.
    This PROSPECT PARK thing will forever be looming over the soap to the end. Enervating!!Too bad TPTB cannot hand pick a few characters from Anna’s past on AMC.

    CeeCee replied

    @Tristan.
    Again, Tristan, I must say how correct you were. I was way off base thinking it had to do with AMC.
    I cannot remember who linked Griffin to Duke on these boards, but that person was on right on target. Fitzgerald is an Irish name…..was Duke Irish or Scottish?

  6. Jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    Is Helene even dead…she could leave Laura her wardrobe, Sam her brain, Alexis a bra and Nik learns he is bankrupt and has to move in a trailer park with Hayden/Rachel?whoever-whatever she is, Liz learns Jake is a clone and Jason learns he isnt Jason….lol

    Reply

    Patrick replied

    LOL

    especially the trailor Park Nicholas… this will really test the allegiance of Hayden, now wouldn’t it

    it seems the griffin munro mystery has taken hold and eclipsed… every one else… that being Jason; Hayden/Rachel; and ???

    I must say… i’m intrigued to know… who Claudette is… ??? I think it’s Kiki real name ??? finally… “they are” ? getting to the mystery of Nina possibly being Kiki long lost child?

    Hi, Patrick.
    At the risk of patting my own back, lol…..as soon as a fuss was made by bringing focus to that glove in Nathan’s tux-side-pocket, I posted the fact that there was a mystery woman behind that glove. Someone else, I think Rose, responded by saying that whoever it was, still held meaning to him for having had it and by putting it back in his pocket without disposing of it. Good call, Rose…it does have meaning for Nathan, which will open a nasty, smelly can of worms.
    I took a wild guess and I was right. Yeayyy!! LOL.
    Nathan and his mother, talked about Claudette briefly, I believe. From the little I understood, Claudette was not a nice girl snd broke Nathan’s heart. It was left at that.
    However, I do believe Claudette will show up in PC trying to ‘revive’ what, I hope, was a torrid, tumultuous , but soooo destructive love affair. As I previously mentioned….there is a love triangle waiting in the wings….

    Patrick replied

    I wanted to post this….

    I was soooo taken… with ; Felicia… what a mother tigress

    just being so… doggone cute and upfront… without being confrontational…

    Felicia brought Nathan…. this black poodle… LOL here’s Claudette

    Here’s my daughter Miaxie.. we’re on to you

    buck up

    LOL

    Nathan.. he’s in for the log haul right… those looks just stifle any misgivings at time

    loved how Maxie was right on point… LOL waking / shaking him… who is Claudette

    I love women for their sixth sense and wherewithal

    its about Timely for Nathan and Maxie to flex some muscle and wing

    he’s earned his stripe… and Maxie gets to reign… with her man… and at Crimson

    love all the other things about GH

    outside of Jason and Sam… and Sonny and Carly ; i’ll throw in Julexis

    there’s plenty that the GH headwriters need to catapult

    Felicia is a DREAM… w/Big MAc

    CeeCee replied

    You’re welcome, Jimmy. My grandmother is 75, with a sharp wit and memory….sometimes better than mine. I loved AMC, but I can’t remember details as well as she. I was young and carefree, Lol…..I had never heard of Charlotte or Lindsey until Gran mentioned them.
    I thought that the only link GH and AMC had was Anna, Alex, and Aidan. Was Aidan ever on GH? To be honest, I thought he was Alex’s son not Lindsey’s.

    I TRULY – want – some thing… any-thing… to MOVE Laura !!!!

    why shouldn’t Helena… in all her magnanimous fortitude… salute Laura… and bequeath Laura with POWER !!!!

    Genie Francis NEEDS to focus on herself!!!

    which is simply put : GH !!!! forever and day.. give Laura a storyline…
    besides being the queen of virtue and if she eats one more candy bar…. I’ll shuck GH
    again

    I want that Helena has stipulated.. that Nicholas and Laura WORK together… and reign as mother and son… and fight for ELQ and fortress WindeMear… and catapult the Cassadine Dynasty

    I’m already so over Jason and Sam; and Carly and Sonny

    why shouldn’t GH give the Cassadine Dynasty some reign and Power… argh! Laura … if she continues to be mother Theresa… sexless… with no imagination… no pull…

    su0000 replied

    hey Patrick..

    The Cassadine Dynasty is a true sop power family and the Casidiones were/are the spark that started all the big fires, some a 5 alarm..

    GH needs the Cassadines back, like yesterday..
    I was more than disappointed when reading Easton will once again be a doctor when he would/could be an awesome Cassidine!

    rebecca1 replied

    No, no, no monsieur Patrick! ELQ needs to get back to its rightful owners, the Q’s! That is THEIR company, it has always bern a part if their story and I wouldn’t want to see Laura pulled in yet again to anothet of Nic’s

    Patrick replied

    i’m just impatiently waiting out… story time… for Genie Francis

    what’s it going to be ?????

    fans were clamoring for her return… and SHE IS GOLD !

    that being said… I don’t want her to be just the token voice of reason… and a dutiful grandmother

    was hoping Helena would bequeath …and stipulate that perhaps .. the Cassadine fortune is not as ailing as Nicholas stated… and that this gives Nicholas more power and reign at his disposal…

    I certainly don’t think Laura would be globetrotting wonder woman espionage.. as long as it’s to Amsterdam to tell AG to forget about showing up to win his 8th emmy

    this is Laura Time… just playing the waiting game… did J and S ?? write for Genie Francis when she was Genevieve ??? gosh darned it… I loved Genie Francis playing Genevieve… what verve get go and sure of her appeal

    Nancy replied

    The last thing I want GH to do with Laura, after promising that Genie is going to have a big storyline, is to have Helena’s bequest to Laura to send her off on some “adventure” – meaning we don’t see her onscreen for 3 months. This woman is soap royalty and has been ignored and maligned enough by TPTB and, in my opinion, certain actors who would throw her under the bus rather than allow her to remind them of the glory of LnL. Give Genie her due and do right by her finally.

    nancy dillingham replied

    Yes, “do right” by Genie!

    CeeCee replied

    I think you may be right about this ‘adventure’ of Laura’s ….or a wild goose chase, Nancy.
    I surely hope this ‘key’ will not take her search of ‘whatever’ too far. Maybe keep her within the confines/perimeters of PC.
    But, as I understand it, Laura is no shrinking violet….would she embark for parts unknown in search of that which the key will unlock? Pandora’s box, mayhap?

    When I first saw Griffin in scenes with Anna I thought he could be a younger brother. I do not know off all Anna’s family connections. I know FH appeared on All My Children as Anna’s twin Alex. Thus a nephew may not be far off.

    Today GH was perfectly decent today! Save for fast forwarding through the Sonny scenes, I actually found myself watching every scene with interest.
    My favorite? Why that would be Laura educating Hayden on the dynamics of the Gatsby and Daisy romance.
    Thank you, Laura. Because yesterday it was driving me crazy (and well all know that is a short drive for me) when Lizzy and others read Hayden’s inscription on the first edition of The Great Gatsby. Really, what kind of idiot would defile a first edition of an enduring classic such as The Great Gatsby with such a stupid and insipid inscription? Moreover, what kind of moron would write,”To my Gatsby from your Daisy” as if this was a wonderful romance? Either Hayden is a tone deaf idiot or she is engaging in Freudian slippery.
    But dear, sweet, and insightful Laura admonished Hayden for her foolery and educated her on the nature of Daisy and Gatsby. Daisy, asserted Laura, is based on a common weed, the daisy, which stinks and dies quickly. The daisy does not contain the more transcendent qualities of other flowers such as the rose and thusforth, is not worthy of Gatsby’s love. Moreover, it is Gatsby’s obsessional love for Daisy (a love which cannot ever be quenched because it’s predicated upon imaginary pinions) which leads to Gatsby’s death.
    Laura tells Hayden that she will not allow her to become her son’s “Daisy.”
    These lines were beautifully written and reflected an understanding of The Great Gatsby. Finally, these lines were beautifully delivered by Genie Frances who was pitch perfect in her delivery.

    Nancy replied

    The only thing that bothered me about Laura’s description of Daisy’s as being a “weed” is that daisies were always Laura’s favorite flower. There was talk in the 80s and 90s stating that. Fine analogy for Hayden, but Laura wouldn’t equate daisies to that. Oh well, another insignificant detail of rewrites that bothers me.

    Reply

    nancy dillingham replied

    Harry 1, I, too, loved it that Laura put Hayden’s in her place. Wish she had gone on to quote the line from The Great Gatsby about “careless” people leaving their messes for other people to clean up.”

    Reply

    Harry 1 replied

    That line would have been perfect, Nancy. Maybe it’s coming?
    I had forgotten that the daisy was Laura’s favorite flower. I never cared for daisies myself.

    Continued…another of Nic’s wrongdoings. What I WOULD like to see is Jason aligning himself with the Quartermaine’s his real family…and help them to take back what was stolen.

    I too want a great story for Laura, nut not at the expense of losing the woman she’s always been…loving, supportive, wise…at the same time action oriented when need be. They can make her dynamic withouy corrupting her.

    As for the Cassadines, they alwayd been the evil yet mesmerizing clan. Unfortunately the writers killed them off. Hopefully some old and new sill start spfinging up to up the edge again.

    hi rebecca1

    Jason and Dillan will work together to get ELQ back..
    It is inevitable that ELQ will be returned to the Q’s..

    The cassidine are Aliens or something, they can not die they are immortal. lol
    A Cassidine is never dead, as in dead … lol
    I really would love a Cassadine invasion !

    Patrick replied

    I totally agree… that ELQ will be back in it’s rightful place… at the “Q”

    I just find it too .. ho hum… at every thing Jason does… spins or weaves in to gold… and he is merely toying with Nicholas… which bugs me

    which simply put… all the story for Nicholas… will go by the wayside… as it has been

    who doesn’t want good story for; Nicholas and mom Laura… I like the angst Hayden brings…

    it just smarts that Liz is asking Sam to NOT stop her investigation in to Rachel… which is interesting to a point…

    OK… I had wanted my new superman Nicholas to keep manning up… argh! Jason cant have it all

    PS: I really was taken aback… when Carly and Jason were in the “Q” crypt right after the sublime Jane Elliott… magnified Tracy forge onward and upward

    when Jason ripped out his ??? headstone… and Carly should never have even been in their…. knowing her history with the Q and her alliance with Sonny… it just reeked of tasteless… once again… she’s given the task of being all that and sharing with her bff his past.

    altho… fans recall that neither Sonny or Carly have yet to tell Jason.. how AJ was murdered.

    wow… lots going on
