125 February 27th, 2015 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Silas and Ava Continue To Grow Closer?

Courtesy/ABC

As viewers learned this week on General Hospital, Ava Jerome (Maura West) is very much alive, and being kept in a New York hospital and hidden away with a big assist from Dr. Silas Clay (Michael Easton)!

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Kiki (Hayley Erin), Julian (William deVry), and Morgan (Bryan Craig) are talking about the wake they are going to have for the “deceased” Ava. The trio also comes to the conclusion that no one else but them will probably attend it!

Silas also fills the wounded Ava in on the fact that Sonny (Maurice Benard) has custody of her daughter, Avery!  Ava even learns that Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to custody of the little girl.  While Ava doesn’t mind Michael trying to stick it to Sonny, she is very upset that either of the Corinthos men could have full custody of Avery.  When Silas tries to ask who else could get custody and take care of the little bundle of joy, Ava relates that she will.  Will Ava waltz back into Port Charles before the judge makes the ruling on who Avery will live with? Will Sonny or Michael be granted custody only to have the child taken away by an alive and kicking Ava?

In addition, it seems that Silas has gone to great lengths to help Ava for the past several months, especially after Nina (Michelle Stafford) kidnapped her baby, and how she viciously induced labor on to Ava.  Silas also knows that Ava murdered Connie Falconeri.  So, what do you think is going on?  Are these proud parents of Kiki Jerome reconnecting, and that could spell major romance ahead? After all, Silas and Sam (Kelly Monaco) are not in each others orbit at the moment, and Ava has no one!

Would you be up for a Silas and Ava romantic entanglement? Do you want them to just be friends? Where do you think their story is heading? Weigh-in below!

    I loved Ava with Morgan! I really wish the show would have really committed to that coupling. Well, if that’s not happening… I’m definitely ok with an Ava & Silas reconnection. Maura West has fantastic chemistry with Michael Easton.

    Jeremy replied

    maybe… there will become a love triangle, with Morgan if he’s revealed to be the real father. Or, maybe Silas is Avery’s father!

    Ava is very sneaky! Love her. Love Maura. Maura for the Emmy win!

    Nah, Jordan and Silas are all wrong for each other.

    Jeremy replied

    @ CeeCee – I didn’t mention a Jordan and Silas pairing! wrong post?

    SoapFan replied

    @CeeCee —

    Why would Jordan and Silas be wrong for each other?

  2. SoapFan says:

    NO!!! Silas and Ava shouldn’t be a couple. Silas should be with Jordan!

    CeeCee replied

    Why?

    SoapFan replied

    Jordan desperately needs a storyline and so does Silas. It’s a win-win if you ask me. They can help each other become more interesting — giving them both a purpose. Plus, I think it would be AWESOME for Silas and Jordan to get together right under Ava’s nose. She’d not have a clue at all. Just think about it — Jordan is Ava’s only friend in PC. Having Ava’s friend and her ex-lover getting together would drive Ava bonkers! Sounds good to me!

    Oh, and the overall bonus is that Jordan is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and Silas is simply GORGEOUS. These two HOTTIES would totally sizzle! I say give them a shot. It didn’t work with Samantha or Nina. Jordan deserves a shot at Silas, too! And both Silas and Jordan are on the right side of the law, which is another bonus for those two!

    Harry replied

    I like Jordan, Soap Fan, and think your idea is a good one. I like that she plays an ethical and strong woman–we need more of that.
    I also like the idea of Silas with Ava because I think Maura West can wake up the forever somnolent Michael Eastman.

    Shay replied

    Good question, CeeCee. I myself cannot see it either. As a matter of fact, I would prefer that the Jordan storyline wrap up, so she can leave town and take “Thomas” with her. (By the way, what happened to the rumor she was supposed to be killed off????) That would free up Shawn and open him to new possibilities, since I do like the actor that portrays him, just not his current situation. There are also too many extraneous cast members remaining on the GH canvas, and more need to be winnowed from the list…I’m STILL waiting for Sappy to go bye bye and take Carrrrr-LOS! with her!!!!! Then maybe we can finally have Alice, Diane Miller, Max, Milo, Epiphany, Monica and other old favorites back in action!

    SoapFan replied

    @Harry — Thank you! I really like Jordan and Silas, and I think that together, the two of them could be explosive! By Ava being their connection, a romantic relationship between the two makes perfect sense.

    @Shay — I would actually prefer that Shawn leave town. I think he is total dead weight. He’s rather pointless. I don’t care for the other characters that you want back on the screen — with the exception of Monica. Monica is a Quartermaine, and, by default, I feel that Quartermaines should always be front and center. They are the backbone of the GH canvas, and since Monica is now the Quartermaine Matriarch, she should always have a viable storyline.

    I LOVE watching Michael Easton and Maura West in scenes together because they are both such wonderful actors. They bring such a depth of emotion to every line. Really fantastic work from both of them. I am very interested to see how they deal with everything but I think it should be as FRIENDS. I think having them be romantically paired is way too predictable. I would love to see them really develop a great friendship but that’s all.

    Patrick replied

    you have a really strong point…

    the bond is already their…. w/Kiki

    so to see Ava with a friend… especially a man… to have in her corner… an honest one at that

    a part of me is intrigued with Michael Easton… so… i’d like to see his character solidified somehow…. ??? I think Ava is his only connect going, right now

    Exactly. I was actually stunned to witness this phenomenon. My mind never went there, Becca. I am actually pleasantly surprised by Silas’s and Ava’s connection.

    No, I must certainly do not want them in a romance. The only thing that would be worse would be a romance with Sonny. Silas is one of my least favorite characters, and I resent that my favorite is stuck with him.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    I agree, Melissa. But, as it always goes without saying, this coupling will happen. I don’t see them together, at all. Maura stage presence is remarkable. She will eat him alive; overpower him, as is her wont.

    Timmm replied

    And thats just it, she will eat him alive and really once she gets free he will be holding his stethoscope in his hand, alone!

    CeeCee replied

    I take the above post back, y’all. After today, I really want to see Maura hook up with Silas. I really enjoyed their comfortable verbal exchange and the ease in which they interact. ….a girl can change her mind, can she not?…LOL.

    Also, Kiki looked so pretty today, and I am really starting to warm up to her….what can I say? I’m in a very generous mood…

    “…I resent that my favorite is stuck ”

  6. Anna says:

    I doh’t mind the idea. The writers will have to explain what touched him to want Ava again. Perhaps he is lonely? Or seeing her with Avery touched him since Avery is Kiki’s sister. I am sure seeing his daughter’s love for her mother has touched him the most. It is a tough situation and I could see him being drawn for the kids sake. But how will the writer’s explain his acceptance of what she did to Connie?

    I may be up for them to get closer. Silas has been very boring. I want to know more about their former relationship. Ava kept Silas away from Kiki for her whole life and acted like he was dangerous or bad. We never really got enough Silas background. We also never found out his true feelings for Nina. That love he claimed to have never came through. I was rooting for Morgan and Ava to get back together, but now I can’t stand him. He thinks Ava belongs in prison, that Sonny deserves the baby and doesn’t care that Sonny threatened Ava the whole time she was pregnant.

    Patrick replied

    I hope… that down the road… when it’s discovered that Morgan is the father ???

    he will man up …. but Ava’s smart… to boy toy for much longer ? I was going to say… she’d fall for Sonny because he’s the father… I wonder if she’ll do her own paternity test

    I don’t want to say that Morgan is wishy washy but… I totally agree with your take on Morgan… his “baby” blues with that bod…

    Oy

    does any one see a chemistry with the nuKiki ?

    Ava with all the mens

    Sonny
    Silas
    Morgan

    In the end I dont like Morgan and Ava. Its alright to play up the Cougar and Cub thing but it never works in real life. I was listening to an old Ashton Kutcher interview and him and Demi were going to grow old together and never leave each other. Well, you see how that worked out, hello Mila Kunis!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Timmm…the divorce rate in America has been over 50 percent for years now…including people who have all the right things on paper…same race, religion and age. We don’t know that Age had anything to do with the Moore/Kutcher split.

    CeeCee replied

    Yes, Silas does nothing to endear himself to me. He’s just there. But, his connection with Ava speaks volumes….I see something romantically brewing between them. I hope the writers explore whatever ‘this thing’ is.

    Reply

    Harry replied

    I have never cared for the term “cougar” to describe an older woman who is romantically involved with a younger man.
    I hate the double standard as we don’t seem to have the same kind of disdain for older men who are romantically involved with younger women. The worst we say is “there’s no fool like an old fool” but we seem to say it with love and acceptance.
    My only issue with Ava being linked up with Morgan is that it crossed subliminal boundaries bordering on being rather incesteous. Morgan was Ava’s daughter’s boyfriend and later, Ava had some terrible tombstone sex with Sonny. That is where my bone of contention lied with Ava and Morgan’s age difference.

  8. Mary Ellen Garza says:

    I don’t mind Ava & Silas giving it the old college try. let’s see if there’s still some chemistry left of what drew them together in the first place.

    although I think they should give Silas a dark side or something. like maybe he’s really Stephen Clay pretending to be Silas. a remake of the Kevin/Ryan storyline.

    NuKiki should definitely be given a fair chance. She needs to control her facial expressions, though. She tends to contort her face this way and that. I am not taken with her aura….can’t put my finger on it. Lack of maturity, perhaps?
    Given time, I’m sure she will find her rightful place. Good luck, Hayley.

  13. Ann says:

    You bet I would want them to get closer! Michael and Maura work beautifully together! Silas and Ava had that love in the past we didn’t get to see acted out. Now would be the perfect time to see that love story resurrected and acted out. I simply love the ease and natural nature they have together. Silas is having those thoughts again. I want to see them together. They are simply beautiful together! Perhaps it is time to give them that story!

    Silas and Ava will grow close and he will marry her to help her get custody of the baby…just one big happy family, right?…WRONG!!! it’l be splitsville once Silas learns Ava has kept a shocking secret…that both CeeCee and myself have known for a long time: Kiki is Nina’s daughter…i believe then Ava and Sonny will become a couple but Ava’s heart will belong to Silas…Meanwhile, wish Carly paid attention to her own flesh and blood Josslyn the way she is with Avas baby…she acts like Sonnys overprotective momma…lol…i wonder if baby Avery will grow up to have her own cooking show or would that storyline be too DULLAN for GH?…lol

    I think a lot of us were toying with the idea that Kiki is really Nina’s…and it still may be true. However, if that’s the case it’s odd that it was never discussed in private moments between Madeleine and Ava…and on a physical note…it seemed that they made Kristen’s hair color similar to Nina’s which added fuel to the mother/daughter fire…new Kiki is blonde like Ava. Maybe tbtb changed course?

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I did intend to say ‘and a few others’ knew about a possible Kiki/Nina connection but i was in a hurry and pushed submit instead of checking over my comments…so much drama goes on in my life it should be a soap opera…lol…i believe the Kiki/Nina connection could still happen…there could be several reasons Maddie and Ava never discussed it in person…maybe neither one of them know it or maybe just one does and just keeping their mouth shut…anything is possible on GH!!!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Lol…not a problem, jimh. Was just mentioning that said theory has been tossed around by many of us here. And it’s beyond frustrating we can’t edit our comments when a trigger finger pushes send and it’s off to the page! As for who’s the momma…I think Madeleine and Ava both are in on it IF Kiki turns out to be Nina’s…which would again make me wonder why there weren’t any digs from either side. I’d also be surprised that Madeleine wouldn’t want to get to know Kiki who would be her grandchild…

    Shay replied

    The dithering with Kiki’s true parentage is but another example of GH writers’ “make it up as you go” style. I truly believe they have yet to select who’s the real mama…..or it has only been a recent detail upon which they’ve decided, as they seem to go back and forth in sprinkling little tidbits to sway our conjectures on the subject. When KA was first featured, it seemed quite apparent that she was going to be someone other than Ava’s bio-child, and since then there have been hints dropped that would lead one to think that she is not. Her haircolor change to Nina’s more gingery shade, Maddie’s suspicious links to Ava, not to mention the book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” that Ms. Jerome was spotted reading during her pregnancy…..as if she should need to be told these details if she had indeed carried a child to term beforehand. It’s simply all just more of the same teasing and tantalizing tactics employed by the showrunners with precious little payoff after so much to-do about nothing.

    You and CeeCee are so smart! I agree with the two of you AND with that theory it makes sense because the new Kiki looks more like she could be Nina’s daughter as opposed to old Kiki looking more like Ava’s daughter. Ohhhh.

    Really, Timmm? I think Kristen looked more like Nina and nukiki looks more like Ava.

    I think it was Kate pretending to be Connie staged the whole thing and framed Ava for a crime that was never committed and Kate is holding Connie captive in a basement somewhere just like Fluke/Luke…lol

    Harry replied

    I have been watching HBO’s Jinxed, The Deaths and Life of Robert Durst. He is a serial killer and he went to trial in Galveston, Texas for the murder of his landlord. Durst admitted to dismembering this man’s body and dumping it in the water but pleaded self defense. The long and short of it is that Durst was found not guilty by a jury of his peers.
    So, I tell ya, if Robert Durst can walk away a free man after the dismemberment and disposal of a body, Ava can certainly walk away a free woman.

    Carlivati and team have just succeeded in officially making Olivia the stupidest most brain dead woman on earth. To have her waltz into the psych ward to see a man she hates who is a known psychopath and serial killer and announce who the father of her child is was possibly one of the most moronic things I have ever witnessed on a soap. It was lazy and contrived writing of the lowest order. RC will do anything to get from one plot point to the next including character assassination. Olivia has never been a rocket scientist but she is a Brooklyn street tough and mob moll who knows how important secret keeping is. Her lame reasoning of “it felt so good to finally tell someone” made no sense whatsoever because she has a perfectly loyal sounding board and support team in Ned who already knows everything.

    And furthermore, who’s the daddy stories for people in their 50′s??? Really?

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    No one ever seems to go to court for child support too…lol…yes, ‘Who da daddy’ is getting pretty lame…also, wouldve prefered Olivia visiting Connies grave and talking about her baby ect., and by the way Ned knows the truth so why did she need to tell another person … why not her own family who she could trust to keep it a secret…and going to see nutty Franco whom she dislikes was definately contrived writing at its worse!!!

    su0000 replied

    Aden..
    Oliva was given a shot of Heather LSD by too ..
    So, yes that gives her a reason to see Franco to see how he is coming out of it etc, curiosity ..
    And Oliva knew Franco would never remember what she said, he would not even know she was there ..
    But- the twist is-
    apparently, Franco was faking and therefore there is a story coming from it..
    Soaps need an ”in” to a story, they need to start from an incident..

    It is the beginning of something good :)

    and ”furthermore”.. lol there is no ”who is the daddy” we know who the daddy is, Ned knows who the daddy is, seems Alexis knows who the daddy is..
    It would be- will the father find out he is the father.. answer we all know it, is yes..

    Rebecca1 replied

    William DeVry is 46…many guys father children in their 40s and beyond. Lisa ( Olivia) is 44 and pregnant in real life so I guess the answer is yes, really.

    Harry replied

    Okay, well gosh. I am a bit conflicted here. On one hand, I do see Cee Cee’s point about growing tired of watching Alexis cavorting around in Julian’s shirt or donning blouses which showcase her cleavage. I think NLG is a beautiful woman with great legs and great bone structure. I do wish they’d clothe her in attire which underscore the aforementioned attributes. And we’ve watched Alexis discover the Joy of Sex with a bad boy time and time again. We get it, Alexis is a sexual and vital woman. Yet, she is also an intelligent and well read woman who would never read such tripe as Fifty Shades of Grey. Let us give her a new story please! But Aden, I do not think Alexis should be knitting booties at home. Life does not end at fifty–some of us might tell you it begins at fifty. I love that Alexis has a love live and has a love life period. I am tired of the entertainment industry putting over forty year old women out to pasture.
    One of the joys of being fifty is you stop giving a damn what people think of you.
    That said, I don’t even like Alexis anymore and I used to just love her. I do adore Anna, Traci, Diane, Ava and yes, Olivia.

    Aden replied

    Rebecca…I know hold these people are in real life but we are talking characters here. Going off Sam’s age which is definitely 40 or very close….that puts Julian and Alexis in the mid 50 range. And going off Dante’s age which is at least 30, that puts Olivia very close to 50. I am not saying these things are not medically possible…I was more taking issue with the complete lack of creativity in the writing. It must be embarrassing for post menopausal Nancy Lee Grahn to still be taking part in baby storylines….which she was a part of like 30 years ago on Santa Barbara.

    Reply

    Rebecca1 replied

    Kelly Monaco is 38 I believe…though I I always thought the type skewed her younger in the show. So let’s say she’s mid 30s..Alexis 50, 51 ( they say she had Sam at 16). I understand your point and I don’t know your age but we all know men can father Olivia as youngish…same with Ava. These are adult story lines and they forward the dynamics and pairings of these couples. Compared to masks, mind control and maniacal mayhem, I find the pregnancy story plausible and probably more interesting BECAUSE they’re older…

    Rebecca1 replied

    Oh man!!! Lol…that last reply was edited by my keyboard! Grrrrrrrrr. What I was trying to say was Ava, Olivia, Michelle…these women are young enough in real life (and the show) to be
    pregnant; they don’t have Nancy so but that doesn’t mean she can’t be involved in raising a child. This is much more relevant and common today than when these soaps aired decades ago. Women are conceiving and adopting much later in life…as a side note Olivia had Dante at 15… So she’s 40 something on the show as well…

    CeeCee replied

    I completely agree with you, Aden. Not only should, as you say, post menopausal Nancy/Alexis not be involved in any baby-drama, but she should also stop parading around half-naked, yuck, in Julian’s shirt…is she supposed to be sexy in that garb? She is too old to be in such scenes, please!
    Then, there’s Kelly/Sam. She looks about the same age as William/Julian. He is very young looking, whereas Kelly is not aging gracefully……looks way too old to be Julian’s daughter.
    Nancy will be 57 next month, Kelly will be 39 in two months. Now, that makes more sense, as mother and daughter.
    As yourself, I do not understand why TPTB keep sticking Alexis in these sordid and stupid juvenile, romantic storylines…settle her down and have her knit scarves and mittens for Danny. I do not want to see her slobbering all over Julian and acting the vixen…..grandma.
    On the other hand, Olivia was also a teen mom. Her age is reasonable, as she is still (biologically) in her child bearing years……boy, it seems most women in Port a Charles were knocked-up as teens…..how quaint! LOL.
    Furthermore, you are also correct about the lack of creativity on this subject. I have always had a hard time ingesting the age ‘thing’. But, GH is not the only soap who engages in this age ‘stuff’. For instance, Y&R’s Gina Tognoni/Phyllis and her son Daniel. If one looks at their age, it does not make sense given the fact she supposedly had him in her twenties. There is a fifteen-year discrepancy there. It is what it is, I guess. Later

    Rebecca1 replied

    Ya…so as I was saying, Aden…it’s quite realistic in today’s world. Women in their 40s are still able to have children…and women who can afford to do so even adopt children in their 5os and beyond. I find some posters…not you, Aden…very age conscious…or should I say repeatedly either ageist or not yet aware how still involved in life people are in their 40s on..,perhaps due to their immaturity or lack of life experience…very narrow in their thinking. Once again the emphasis put on Nancy Graham’s age…and she’s not even the one pregnant…is rather unworldly and narrow a view…(again, not referring to you, Aden) and the emphasis is in the wrong place. The point is how these relationships will unfold as Alexis, Julian, Ned and Olivia move forward…which has always been a big part of what soaps been about. Just a different point of view for you to consider…

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee…..I’m sure it will come as no surprise that we are much on the same page here…..”quaint,” indeed!!!! As for one of our favorite subjects, that “randy granny,” Alexis, what more needs to be said? You nailed it!

    Rebecca1 replied

    It doesn’t come as a surprise to me…you’re still both judgmental and ageist…and consistent.

    Shay replied

    On the contrary, YOU are the most “consistent” one of us all, rebecca1! (And predictable, as well….) However, for the record, I did respond to your other comments, but alas, the moderators also proved most consistent and predictable in their choice not to post it. Their call, of course, I’m not grousing, just wanted you to know that I did have the courtesy to try to reply to you!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Late in responding to this but yes…I am consistent. I’m against ageism and judgmental snark. Sorry if that offends you or puts a wrench in your carefully crafted “oh-so-clever” ageist comments.

    “Once bit, twice shy’” might be a good motto for Silas to follow as far as romance with Ava. Not interested in seeing him back with Sam. No electricity there. However being friends with Ava is complicated enough, and a little dangerous. But in this case he’s also involved because of Kiki. Interesting to see the new Kiki. Hayley is coming to GH right in the middle of a big storyline. And as far as the custody of baby Avery, we still got Franco and Nina staking their claims.

    The scene outside the courtroom showed Nina still has the fantasy that the baby is hers. Combined with Franco, who i’m sure will somehow be out on the loose again and find his way to Nina…don’t count them out.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Rose…Nina was faking that. She deliberately pretended to be crazy…be obsessed with the baby…so they’d send her back to the psychiatric hospital to be with Franco. That was her plan…perhaps you should watch that scene again???

    Ann replied

    Nina was faking that breakdown upside the courtroom so she could go back and be with Franco at Shadybrook. She knows the baby isn’t hers. Franco is also faking his looniness.

    I do not believe that Ava and Silas will be written as couple..
    They will be close, they have a past, they have a complicated past love, they are parents/they have a daughter..
    Ava will get Silas involved in her mob adventures ..(whoa cool !
    Silas will stand by Ava and the mob stuff will give Silas some really good stories, sorta like MacBain ! :) ..

    I would like Ava and Silas together as a love couple, but do not see that happening.. its going to go in a different direction, a bumpy exciting ride ..

    That’s because Maura (Ava) is lively and Silas needs that because he’s so soft spoken — having Silas & Sam together, two soft spoken actors was torture to listen too.

    Sam and Silas were awful. Silas with Ava might be better but Easton has lost his mojo on GH and I love the actor. Loved him as McBain….

    Ces replied

    I agree about McBain turning into Silas ruined his character — that whole OLTL transition to new characters ruined him and Franco/Todd. IT was all for nothing.

    CeeCee replied

    You are so right, Ces, albeit the difference between the two is that while Silas may be soft-spoken, there is tonality in his voice; Sam? She just drones, and drones, and drones….like the sounds emanating from a beehive in summer……that droning puts me right to sleep. When I’m tired, that’s a good thing…LOL.

    I’m a huge Trekkie, but General Hospital fans and ABC have reason to give tribute to Leonard Nimoy/Spock since his passing. He is credited, though unconfirmed, with appearing in GH’s #1.17 episode as Bernie in 1963, the same year GH started. Many have said it…as Spock he inspired, as Leonard he did “Live Long and Prosper.”

    This is totally off subject but last night I watched the movie The Carpetbaggers I believe it was one in the sixties seen it several times. I swear Maura West looks just like the actress Carol Baker when she was young. I had to do a double take a lot of the same mannerisms etc. just thought I would throw that out there I guess we do indeed have a double out there.

    If you can locate it, check out Carroll Baker in the film “Harlow.” The resemblance should be even more remarkable when you consider the similar retroglam garb that Ava was featured in when she first hit Port Charles….very film noir, if you recall!

    CeeCee replied

    Shay, both you and Rose are right. Maura West always looked so familiar to me, as if I knew her in another life. Now, I made the connection….
    It is having watched all those old movies at my grandparents’s house, as a child and beyond.

    Hey Shay, we are consistent, you and I. I always thought that was a plus in one’s character, no? We seem to have struck a chord, somehow. I know who I am and what I am. (as yourself, I’m sure, Shay). I am woman, strong and true. No need sing my own praises and enumerate my many assets , qualifications, and achievements. I steadfastly still maintain that women of a certain age , point in fact, Alexis, who is almost sixty, should act with decorum. I am entitled to voice my opinion, non e’ vero, amica mia?

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hey, Shay,,,yes, I too see the Carol Baker reference. As for the opinion that women in their fifties should no longer be portrayed as having a sex drive or dress sexually… and who it was suggested…should be sitting home knitting her grandson mittens…the very fact that a woman…a WOMAN…not even a guy…but a female close to 30 would think this way is so sad, so naive of what womanhood is all about at any age…just boggles my mind. Perhaps being in the publishing field I’m not used to such juvenile, sexist thinking. Ah, well…as I said, consistent, predictable, judgmental. What I would suggest is this person sharpen her knitting, crocheting, Bingo and whatever else she thinks she’ll be doing at that age. LOL…only then will said person probably realize how ridiculous her view at this time in her life was… Oh! It’s so cute how you both seek out my comments re my defense of Alexis/Nancy Graham and other ageist comments just so u can throw in a few more snarky comments. So fun! Just a thought, Shay. I could be wrong but I get the sense that you’re well over 40. If so, have you taken up knitting yet?

    Harry replied

    Cee Cee and Shay, you both are putting me in the position of defending Alexis and I may never forgive you for that.
    Age happens to all of us if we’re lucky. As a long distance runner I have this mantra running in my head as I approach a hill–’The hill is your friend.”
    The same approach should be adopted when thinking of growing older. As you climb that hill and strive to be over it think to yourself, ‘Age is your friend.’
    Slam Alexis all you want–I don’t care and would like to join the fun. But slamming her for being a sexual vital character after age forty has this ring of ‘Just who does she think she is?’ tone to it, and I don’t care for that way of thinking. One day you will be as old as me (that’ll be when you’re driving around the skies having fender benders with George Jetson) and you might change your mind about women over forty needing to stay home to knit booties. My grandmother got her airline pilot’s license at age sixty and flew around like the incarnation of Amelia Earhart! And to paraphrase Dr. Seuss, oh the places you shall go after forty. Don’t hate the old for being old because you will only end up hating your future self.
    I like you both and so I hope we can agree to disagree on this issue.

    Rebecca, did you ever catch Frances McDormand’s Youtube entitled “On Aging”?

    Rebecca1 replied

    Harry…so nice to see up you “here”… ;) Yes I did catch it. First, I think it’s interesting that age is such a source of contention for all of us. She’s a “natural, earthy woman so I think her lack of enhancement, so to speak, only adds to the natural attractiveness of her look. But I must admit I see nothing wrong with plastic surgery or non invasive procedures…or makeup or hair color. I think, like exercise and keeping your body toned…if one can…is good. Nothing wrong with loving the way you look and wanting your external appearance to exemplify your age spiritually. But then I think it’s great and admirable when others can let that all go and just let things happen naturally. Personal choice…what I do think is Interesting is how we all go thru the “us vs them” stage. When we’re under 30 we think we’re the only ones who were ever young…that older people were always older…that we’re the only cool generation…from those in the rat pack days, to The Beatles days, the Woodstock generation, on and on and on.

    I remember visiting a nursing home when I was around 16… Watching these elderly people..some staring blankly into space, others shouting, looking lost, acting out. And all I could think of was…at one time these people were young. They laughed and danced and flirted and had sex and were everything that those younger than them enjoy now..who think they are the only ones who do those things. They can’t fathom that these elderly people were doing all those things before they, the “jury” was born. All I saw was the human condition.

    I go dancing. A lot. And I remember when I was in my 20s seeing these two women in their 50s with great bodies…dancing their butts off. And while some people wondered why they were in a club ” getting down” I LOVED seeing them there…watching them. For me, they proved that everyone…everyone…should and can continue to do what they love for as long as they are able…and F the “rules” of what others think you should be doing, what you should be wearing, …for, in essence, who makes these rules?? OTHER people! Usually people young enough to be the children or grandchildren of the people they’re judging! The whole thing is ludicrous…on a side note…I LOVE to see elderly people dancing. I mean rock in’ out. A little old man of 80 gettin’ all jiggly wid it. Lol…because what I see is the person inside the aging body..the person who is the same guy he was in his sizzlin’, smokin’ days ;) minus the wear and tear of the external…the same guy who always loved to dance…who still feels the rhythmic beat that makes him want to move. Same with sex, it never stops…and it shouldn’t…unless unfortunately illness prevents one from partaking in ANYTHING in life…not just amazing…did I say amazing ? Yep…freaking amazing SEX!

    Stones’ lyrics…”what a drag it is getting old”…didn’t Jagger once say something about not trusting anyone over 30? And then he became the person over 30. It’s a cycle…and no one has to be hung out to dry… Seriously? I’m still so surprised and put off by these ridiculous statements about the characters Alexis, Carly and Sonny. The notion that characters this age shouldn’t be portrayed as sexual…having, wanting, loving sex is so out of my range of thinking. When I hear words tossed around here like “decorum” and thoughts expressed such as someone that age is oversexed or should be home knitting, etc…lol…it’s, to coin an expression from my mom…”funny/sad.” Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to pick out something to wear; I’m going
    Dancing tonight and then I’m going to have some hot, crazy…knitting time. Hahahahaha. Ahem.

    Back when he played Detective McBain on OLTL, I used to go insane (again, this is a short drive for me) at the way he’d strut around the police station with his hands on his hips. I always expected him to start singing,”I’m a little tea pot!”
    But the actor is good if not underrated. And he also seems like a sweetheart in real life. I am glad he’s sticking around.

    Timmm…..Your oft-stated remarks revealing your obviously visceral dislike of RP amuse me to no end….I’m one of the few females here at MFSoaps who is not completely besotted with the guy, in fact, I’m pretty neutral where he is concerned, so your frequent snipes at him don’t bother me in the least. Actually, I totally get them because they remind me of my own extreme aversion for to the characters of Sappy, Nina and Alexis!

  29. CeeCee says:

    @Timmm. Why do you persist on wounding me, Timmm? …LOL.
    Seriously, to me? Ryan is perfection, albeit I admit it is a completely physical reaction and attraction, on my part. My Gran had a crush on Zorro (Guy Williams–50′s/60′s TV). She says Ryan looks like him. I looked Guy up and the resemblance is striking.

    If anyone can breathe some life into Silas, it is certainly the formidable Ava…I’m with you , I like the idea.

    I also agree with you about the age difference between couples…..especially when the woman is much, much older. I know I will get blasted for saying that, but, it is a fact. I am not saying it’s right, but it is what it is. These marriages all fall apart. I had heard that Kutcher wanted a child…Demi could not deliver…pardon the pun. ….way past her prime. By the same token, the opposite is also true.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee…..From the moment Ava arrived on the Port Charles scene, I always felt she was intended to hark back to that ’30′s screen siren/gun moll image popularized by Harlow herself, so in theory, I suppose I saw the Baker resemblance even then. (I also grew up watching all those old flicks of the silver screen due to my mother’s own interest in them….we “consistently” viewed a lot of them together. The silent movies really fascinated me as a child, too and the personalities still do….to this day, I often read about them! That’s probably another reason why I’m so besotted with Downtown Abbey, since it transports us to that same era. ) On a more modern note, I recognized a similarly striking likeness between Days’ Gloria Loring and MW….before the hot mess known as Delia was proclaimed as Ava’s mama, I suggested that GL would have been a great choice of actress to play the role. Having said that, CeeCee, I cannot comprehend why those of us with “consistent(ly)” strong personal values must be constantly derided for them. Why should one have to defend maintaining high standards and espousing them, and how does that make us “immature” or “unworldly?” It’s beyond me! Quite frankly, I believe in adhering to a certain level of decorum no matter what one’s chronological age, but to depart from that notion in later years somehow seems even more egregious to me, since one definitely should know better by that juncture in life. Why this simple, basic tenet is so controversial, I’ll never understand…particularly here at this website which so graciously invites differing public commentary regarding all aspects of given shows, storylines, characters, etc. Every viewer sees things through their own prism and brings that unique perspective …I, myself, find it fascinating, interesting, and above all, light-hearted and fun….but certainly not a fitting venue for endless lectures as if this were a women’s studies’ grievance forum…..LOL. P.S. Mr. Williams also starred on “Lost in Space,” which I believe currently airs on the MeTv network, should anyone care to compare him with your beloved RP!

    Shay…please. Do you play the innocent, wide-eyed, I-don’t-get-it participant or are you really in the dark here…I’d say the former. Since we either get edited or deleted on this site I’ll give this a shot and hope it reaches you and clarifies your feigned confusion. From the start of this infantile chess game between you, your friend and myself…it is I who was disrespected. First by your bud…who screamed at me on the page because I liked the Ava/Nina kidnapping story. Which, is laughable. Not the story..her reaction to me. She likes to reiterate, such as yourself…and myself….that we are all entitled to our opinions. When it came to that SL…she didn’t just disagree…she attacked. Accused me of absurdities because I simply found the story well acted and compelling. I don’t like being screamed at…in person or on paper. And so our antagonism…hers and mine…began. She was out of control and wound up using words like crazy, stalking, etc. I’ve never seen such a hysterical (and I don’t mean funny) reaction to a soap or another’s view. Now let’s get to you. You, by your own admittance found the argument amusing. Fun to read. You even went do far as to compliment the “humor” of a nasty comment she made to me courtesy of her husband. You went on to reference that exchange and compliment his superlative wit. Not only was her husband’s comment juvenile and pedestrian…I mean, really…it was just so nothing and yet so school age silly..that I really don’t see how you, a self-proclaimed lover of decorum, morals, high brow taste…could think such a silly attack funny…and participate. Okay, so let’s put that mystery aside. How do you not think you’ve not made an enemy of me while you’re applauding an obnoxious comment made at me…and how can you…defender of one’s right to have a different opinion…not jump in and tell your friend that she was out of line from the beginning of the argument. Hypocritical comes to mind. You have since proceeded to engage each time I defend Nancy Graham. This is not about her role as Alexis. This is a repeated slam against women who have passed a certain age…a negative opinion that I never expected to find on a soap site or from other females. So you have brought the conversation into a personal arena. There is no difference for me when you bash another woman because of her age, insult her body and her sexuality, than if you had made an anti- Semitic judgement, a racial one or a gay one. Basically, it’s insulting and denigrating another human being for who they are.and yeah, I’m passionate about that stuff. And there have been a few times that you either comment right after me or within the context of what I’ve said to someone else regarding this…do you not see how you declare your moral compass…one should dress and behave in a certain way, a dignified way, a way that you deem respectable and appropriate…but yet you find nothing wrong with interjecting yourself into an antagonistic argument between myself and your bud here…laughing..so to speak…at nasty words directed at me..and let me digress…it’s not a about me or taking my side,,,had you laughed in her face it would also be antagonistic…unless you’re trying to continue the animosity…don’t feign innocence. If you want to play team tag with said friend, then at least acknowledge you’re an active participant. As for your friend, she has claimed she’s stayed away from my posts. Nooooo, quite a few times she’s posted directly after me to cheer on anyone who I have disagreed with. Not argued with..simply had a different view. I’ve read her posts, too. On the one hand she’s the champion of letting someone have their own opinion, on the next post she’s belittling someone or correcting their written composition; critiquing their use of sentence structure, paragraphs, etc as she attempts to slam their opinion. Again, silly, juvenile shite. No matter..I can discuss fiction…or debate the ludicrous and hypocritical.

    CeeCee replied

    Everything you wrote, and then some, Shay. At twenty-eight years old, I consider myself very mature, ….but, as you indicate, it is fun to exchange views on soap sites. We become acquainted with many of the viewers’ s personalities and discuss differences of opinion. It would be quite droll if we all thought the same.
    As far as experience? I buried a child. …..watched him take his last breath…..I have been to hell and back. No one is going to tell me about life experiences. I have more wisdom than some ‘old’ biddies put together.
    My husband is my rock…I have a very strong will and personality which helps to just put some people where they belong ( in my head…dismissing them altogether) with no injury to me whatsoever.

    Yes, Shay….I don’t remember Gloria Loring (married to Alan during her Days tenure)…. But, I have my grandmother who loves to discuss “back in the day” as she is constantly wont to say. Both my parents are professionals, thus we kids spent most of our time with our grandparents.
    Yes, I do see the resemblance between MW and GL. And, as you point out, DELIA is a far cry from GL’s class and persona.
    I appreciate any feedback from any fan within the realm of civility. There is no need to be insulting and resort to name-calling. Nonetheless, this angst toward fellow-posters stems form her/his own deep-rooted issues. ……which, incidentally, Shay? These said insults bounce right off me. Later, gator…..is that immature enough?….LOL.

    Rebecca1 replied

    CeeCee…I’m very sorry for your loss. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone and it is an agony that no one should have to go through. That doesn’t change your initial attack on me…your repeated ageist comments from Luke to Helena to Sonny and Carly…you had a problem with them being sexual too, because they’re not, according to you, kids anymore. You now insulted Nancy Graham’s body and can’t fathom why she should be depicted as a sexual being because she’s in her 50s. Old biddies? You’re a grown child.These are not mature thoughts. If you don’t believe me now, perhaps time will open your eyes as you move up in years. You’re a reactive person…you lash out even here when something or someone doesn’t sit right with you. I know; I was on the receiving end of it . You want to contradict me whenever I post…knock yourself out. It’s, I repeat. Immature. I’m interested in exchanging ideas with people who, as you ironically said, ” do not resort to name calling and insults. If we could somehow dig up our arguments the proof would be there to read. It’s all here, most likely, in the archives on this site. I have zero desire to interact with you…I can see right through you. You’re “tres” transparent. See? I’ve given you a parting gift…you can share my comments once with your friends/co-workers and laugh away…as you told me you did last time. Not particularly mature…but enjoy!

The two of you are starting to remind me of those high school girls in class who pass notes, roll eyes and smirk while the sociology teacher delivers her lesson of the day.

    Sometimes I need a kick in the arse. Please keep in mind that I am not a vicious person….all in good fun, or so I thought.

    Shay replied

    @Harry…..Oh, the indignity! Please forgive me for putting you in such an awkward spot, since you are a great favorite of mine here at MFSoaps…..that was never my intention! And of course, we can agree to disagree…..you do remember that lady called “Dr. O.?” (I rest my case….LOL.) Having said that, I do believe you understand my sense of humor, and know that big, bad ageism is truly not at the root of my repeated chidings of Alexis…..I simply find her to be a ridiculous, mock-worthy creature….that she is of a “certain maturity” may enhance that notion, but even if she were 10 or 15 years younger, I would still say basically the same things about her in terms of her wardrobe choices and OTT lusty behavior. It’s not as if I have shown disrespect to an entire class of actors who inhabit the Port Charles canvas by suggesting that none of them is relevant or has the right to be there due to their dates of birth. Many of the oldest players are some of the dearest—and most beloved—to me! Hence, I consider my critiques of what I find to be unbecoming in terms of some specific characters not to be based upon age, but simply a different set of values. (Which, by the way, were instilled in me by….my elders, for whom I hold the utmost esteem!) The majority of my friends and family are older than me, some by quite a bit, and it is actually their attitudes on matters we frequently discuss here that have and continue to color/reflect my opinions. Most particularly, the subject currently at the heart of this debate. In fact, one of my real-life best friends/co-GHers is in the same age-demographic as NLG, and is her most vocal critic….for the better part of two years—which pre-dates my posting debut here—we have similarly commented upon the character of Alexis. Ditto for others in my social circle who also cannot stand the way this character presents herself. Therefore, if they are slamming someone who is a “contemporary”—and I also happen to agree with/echo their sentiments—how is that ageist? At any rate, I don’t wish to further this tiresome debate any longer or drag you into it even more than you already have been, but suffice to say, I’ve no personal bias against those who are senior to me….I look up to them and get along famously with those from generations that have come before me…in fact, my best-loved college professors—and bosses—have all been older gentlemen….(I’ve always been very comfortable within the patriarchal order of society!) Which leads me to something I shared with CeeCee just a few threads ago….I told her that I thought it would have been a fabulous experience taking one of your literature classes….your obvious knowledge and engaging personality would have grabbed me from the start, so I can assure you there would have been no passing of notes, rolling of eyes, or smirking…only rapt attention on my part!

    Rebecca1 replied

    Harry…thank you. Your comments are appreciated and your writing showcases a person with innate intelligence and quick wit..two qualities I greatly admire. I don’t remember calling you out on ageism…you actually jumped in when I addressed jimh’s post because cumulatively I’d just had it! Lol…and at the time you weren’t familiar with why I felt the way I did about the constant references to age, sex and “appropriate behavior.” You’re a wise soul…but they say wisdom comes with age. ;)

    Rebecca, I do believe you have crossed the line. Not that my sister Cecelia needs defending since she does very well on her own. I am not a participant of these ‘chats’, however I do read them.
    Speaking of archives, I did just what you proposed. I work with computers. I am an expert, a wiz, rather, at it. It seems to me that you are the one who constantly posts to someone else with inference to my sister in a very condescending manner. You just did it the other day.
    From all the different posts I have read, and on other soap sites which you do not watch, you directly contradicted Cecelia on the subject of Australian hunks.
    There was just that one post and that one general line from you. Just a random post which you are in the habit of making now and again. It proves that you go fishing to see where or what my sister posts, and then you JAB. You are the attacker, you are the antagonizer. You know nothing of the Days storylines, yet you just nilly willy respond with a contradiction to what my sister writes? The same applies to Y&R.
    You have some nerve. Manipulative? Transparent? My twin is a beautiful girl, inside and out, who goes out of her way in helping those in need. I will not expound on how many charities she heads.
    She is always on the side of the underdog. She wears her heart on her sleeve which is something I always tell her not to do.

    I do believe, Ms Rebecca that you are the one with an ageism problem. You seem to take everything too personally. Are you jealous of youth? There is no other explanation. I will not apologize for our high morals and standards. The writers of soaps should know better than to have a character in the role of an attorney dress the way they allow Alexis to do. It just isn’t done. Look at Tracy or Monica or Bobbi or even Carly. These ladies are all covered.
    Please no replies, nasty or otherwise. Just end it., once and for all. These poor fans are getting tired of both your unreasonable tirades and insulting rhetoric. Just tuck your tail between your legs and shush. You do not know us, so desist from making such outrageous accusations. One way or another, you will be completely ignored. So go ahead, have at it. And, we do laugh at your making a scene over something that should be fun. People are human and they do have opinions. You have a problem for going off the handle. Control yourself. We are not in the habit of yelling at each other or attacking the general public or faceless soap fans. You are an expert at it.
    If this is so close to your heart and since you profess to be in publishing, then go ahead and write your best article. Just indicate what magazine and I will make sure to buy a copy.

    In what courtroom have you ever seen a female attorney present and defend her case with a décolletage down to her knees? I have sat through many of my parents’s cases. I have never seen an ‘Alexis’-type stand in front of judge and jury dressed like her. Have you?
    So, let me get this straight. If you saw a woman such as Alexis walking down the street flashing her wares, you would be ok with that? Most people would gawk in disbelief, mouth agape . Then, have a good laugh.
    Please leave my sister alone. She loves these sites. I don’t. But, it is her prerogative to post. Why must you rain on her parade with your nasty, personal attacks? She attacks characters, not fans.
    And since we are on the subject, she does not correct the fans’ grammar. Look back at her posts. She speaks in general of good and proper grammar. She responds to whatever some other poster may remark on it. You have blown this thing so out of proportion and are so insulting, it surprises me how Mr. Fairman allows you to get away with it. How old are you?

    Elle…since you’re a sleuth aficionado, instead of intense research why don’t you read what’s on this very page. My issue is ageism…not what The character Alexis wears in the courtroom. Lol…I could care less what “Alexis” wears. This was about the continued declarations that an older woman should not be in a story regarding sex, should no yet be dresses in her boyfriends shirt after an obvious night they spent together…to quote CeeCee above…”yuck ” and her belief that she shoul be home knitting. She has made similar comments about the characters Sonny and Carly…she feels it distasteful and unrealistic that people that age would be so sexual. Now, that’s her opinion. I never attacked her…I stated my opinion that healthy people are sexual at all ages…and as a woman, regardless of MY age, I think it’s sad that other women would perpetuate the stereotypes that women have in sexual value or sexuality at a certain age. If you read my post above to Harry, you will see that I’ve always been aware of age and how we devalue or desexualize people after a certain amount of years.

    If you continue along your investigative prowess, you can trace back your sister, CeeCee, being extremely rude to me because I liked a kidnapping story that she has strong feelings about. Had she Judy simply state d her aversion to the story that would have been fine…burptter she “screamed” at me and asked if I enjoyed children getting hurt. She attacked me over a work of FICTION..which of course put me on the defensive.

    Continue on, and you can find where she disagreed with another poster and, siding with another one dissected the persons writing…

    Did I voice npmy opinions on”Aussies” which by the way as an American I doubt I’d appreciate a soap site based in Australia saying there were too many Americans on their show…but I digress….since CeeCee posts to things zi feel about ageism and Alexis…I see nothing wrong sith posting about Australian actors whom I actually like. And, yes, I occasionally go to other pages, as do a few of us depending on what the topic is or to discuss an actor we like.

    Finally..it is I whi has been civil..even so much I. The midst of this animosity to address CeeCee and express my compassion for her loss. It is a separate issue from arguing here.

    It’s nice that you abpnd your sister have each other’s backs…still doesn’t make either of you correct or justified in what really transpired here.

    And Elle? If you read a tad further than “yuck” CeeCee goes on to say Alexis is “too old” to be in these (sexual) scenes. That’s ageism…if one expresses it, than, like we all agree, another can take offense at it and say so. That’s what we do here.
