Did fans of General Hospital just watch Michelle Stafford’s 2014 Daytime Emmy reel on today’s episode?
Now while it’s a bit premature to predict that annual race, or who might choose what scenes for contention, Stafford’s performance ran the gamut of emotions and if edited together to show the range of her acting in one episode … this could be a strong possibility!
In story, Nina Clay is turning out to be totally certifiable! After being confronted by Silas (Michael Easton) for all of her schemes and lies to break up his relationship to Sam (Kelly Monaco), she admits to them! Thank God ,Silas finally let Nina have it for her horrific deeds!
Later, as she tries to say that her caregiver Rosalie (Linda Elena Tovar) suggested she fake paralysis to get Silas back and to hold on to her husband and more, Silas can’t listen to it her one more second. However, one minute Nina is shedding tears for losing her husband, and being put in a coma by her mother for 20 years, and in another, she is screaming at her husband for how much she loathes him for having an affair with Ava Jerome (Maura West) and that she had his baby… Kiki (Kristen Alderson)!
Nina later confesses it was she that destroyed and ransacked Silas’ apartment many months ago, not Madeline (Donna Mills)! She even gets caught about her “revenge list”, and while at times she rationalizes her actions, at other times she is so angry, other times vindictive and cruel, and yet other times plain scary, to other times showing signs of deep pain! After Silas figures out that Nina is not playing with a full deck, he suggests they go to couple’s counseling to which she looks like she is about to kill Silas for the near mention of that!
Major kudos to Michelle Stafford on this one folks! Who else could play the roller-coaster of emotions in what is turning out to be one hell of twisted character!
