52 November 21st, 2016 On General Hospital, Does Alexis Mow Down Julian? Watch The Promo!

Courtesy/ABC

Doesn’t Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) already have a history of getting behind a car and hitting someone? Sooo, then this Turkey Day plot turn could spell disaster for the boozing Ms. Davis!

In the latest ABC promo for General Hospital, while the Quartermaines and more gather for their annual Thanksgiving gatherings, and Lante looks to saying their “I-Do’s”, Alexis is in bad shape and Julian (William deVry) may, or may not, be her intended target!

As Alexis is behind the wheel of her car, we see Julian walking, then we we see a body flying after a car goes right for him.  Alexis cries, “What have I done?” But was Alexis just watching as this all happens and not the guilty party behind the wheel … or … will it be revealed as is intended in the promo that she ran down the once man of her dreams?

Watch the promo after the jump, and let us know what you think of this latest Julexis conundrum? Comment below!

    Julian? I would rather she hit Jordan, Nathan, Nina, Curtis, Andre, Griffin or Finn!

    Well, I can agree with half that list, Timmmbo….and add Hayden and Alexis herself! Either have her hit a tree once she’s completed her vehicular homicidal handiwork or perhaps forget to put her car in park before she gets out of her car to inspect her “roadkill,” then, whoops…Alexis gets plowed down, too!!!!

    I would only keep 2 from UR list, and U wouldn’t be pleased
    w/ my choices …Sorry. Is Alexis going fast enough to knock
    some serious sense into him…doubtful. And we all know he
    won’t become her next casualty, otherwise we’re looking at
    Julian being her third victim. And she has the ba–s to call
    Sonny and Julian unscrupulous !!!!! REALLY

    Sorry, Fanny. No comparison between mob bosses and a woman with a disease…because at this point Alexis has a drinking problem…she’s not out partying.

    Fanny replied

    @Rebecca, hi… Yes of course I realize Alexis is an alcoholic
    and that it’s a disease. That being said… whatever happened
    to the real Alexis…Smart,witty, brilliant attorney, great friend
    good mother…. Julian happened and I get it, I really do….but
    not with eyes wide shut !!! She chose to pretty much ignore
    the ugly truth about Julian again and again…. Even when he
    admitted to ordering Duke’s murder, she still married him. So
    now she’s a Mobsters wife… Did she truly believe her love
    would change him, make him a better man…When a man
    tells you who he really is believe him. When reality finally
    sets in she turns on him…he sees this as a betrayal and
    momentarily snaps tries to kill her and all hell breaks loose.
    She drowns her sorrow in the hope that it will help her for-
    get… That it was all torn to shreds, love, career, self esteem.
    But again…all the life altering decisions Alexis made were
    done so before the booze became an issue.

    Mrs Kravitz replied

    All I can say is that NLG is bringing it home with this alcoholism story. She really plays a drunk so very well. The mornings after a bender? Well, you can see the self loathing on her face and if you have a loved one who is an alcoholic, you know that look so well.
    NLG is the Meryl Streep of daytime. I just love her.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi again Fanny. As Jax said to Carly, ” We don’t choose who we love…” I make allowances when I watch soaps; there are things that so go against my grain that even suspending my disbelief doesn’t change how I feel. Michael returning Avery to Sonny for example. Michael forgiving Sonny without so much as a lingering conflict. But when it comes to love on GH…I kinda go with the flow if I like the two people in the couple. I love Alexis; always have. And, she’s still all the things you described…smart, witty, a brilliant attorney…she’s still a great mother and friend.

    I still like Julian. There’s something about him I just am drawn to. And, I do believe he did and still does love Alexis. I’ve come up with several theories of why he attacked her. One: fantastical…Helena cursed the knife that she returned to Alexis…the same knife that she used to slit Alexis’s mother’s throat. If we are to believe that Helena truly can curse people…than that would exonerate Julian in my eyes for attacking her.

    My second more realistic thought is he literally lost his mind when everything started unraveling. He killed Carlos, he felt guilt…but he did it to preserve his life with Alexis. I think when she couldn’t accept that he had lied again, had killed again, he just assumed she’d still stand by him. His love was that deep; he thought their relationship impenetrable. When she went against him by wearing the wire I think he literally snapped from hurt, shock, feelings of betrayal, realization that he was going to lose her and his family…temporary insanity! I tell myself that even though he held the knife to her throat he never would have killed her. If Sonny hadn’t stepped in this is how I want to think it would have gone down:

    Julian shaking with fury, holding the knife to her throat, but repeatedly asking “why.” Why, how could you betray me. He thought she loved him..their family..how could she just throw it all away…all the while crying. And then, throwing her away from him, dropping the knife, running away..

    Lol. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. As for Alexis, her current state just cries human to me. She loved him deeply and truly believed he had changed. You don’t get over that kind of love…particularly when it all unraveled so quickly..or the shock, the brutality and betrayal she felt. Couple that with the harsh judgment she received from everyone, losing her license, her pride, her reputation, her life with her husband…makes sense to me.

    People go through great times in their lives. Other times, they fall apart if the burden is too great.. Cumulative. She’ll bounce back. Eventually…

    Rebecca1 replied

    One more thing Fanny. If you recall Julian explained to Alexis how he had grown up…in a very cold environment with a mob father. He didn’t feel nurtured, he wasn’t encouraged to feel love or want family. His newfound love for her and his children gave him the incentive to change. So when he told her he would, I truly believe he meant it and so did Alexis. And then…he didn’t. Or should I say he too, fell off the wagon.

    My dearest Jimmy….I wish you find some solace and joy, somehow.
    Have faith, my friend. It will not abandon you. Easier said than done, I know it seems that way now. But, my faith, my husband, my son and family picked me up and carried me during my darkest moments.
    Much love.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
    Hoping to hear from you soon.

    Rose replied

    Jimh…Hoping you feel better soon. You are probably the first commenter I wanted to follow when I started on MF a few years ago. As a “story teller” in your own right you always bring humor and wit to whatever you add. So Happy Thanksgiving to you, and look forward to reading more from you about our imaginary alter universes.

    Timmm replied

    Jim, you are a staple here at Michael Fairman. I hope and pray you have a family member or a church that you can turn to. I dont know what you are going through but remember this, you are a snowflake, we all are, without each of us, there would be no snowman to build, no snowball to throw or not enough snow to ski, hang in there, we need you, EVERYONE counts! Happy Thanksgiving buddy.

    Soaphound replied

    Oh, Jim, so sorry to read of your troubles. You’ve given us all so much joy and food for thought with your posts. I know cliches don’t really help, so let me just say that there are people who care, even if we’re only online. That, along with my faith and my books and music and the great acting on our shows, always encourage me to see the good sides of life, even in terrible darkness. My prayers will be with you and remember we need you.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Best wishes jimh…try to have a Happy Thanksgiving and “see you” when you feel ready to come back!

    Shay replied

    @jimh….Thank you, my friend! Sending thoughts and prayers for brighter days ahead.. We all have our moments when we feel the need to “step away” from the MF Soap threads, but please don’t allow it to become a habit. Your comments “make our day,” and it’s never the same when those always-anticipated remarks fail to appear, At the very least, promise to keep in touch to let us know you’re hanging in there and still lurking “here” amongst the many regulars who call this website “home!” Take care and best wishes for a most blessed Thanksgiving and holiday season.

    All I know is that the Quartermaines better have to call out for pizza on Thanksgiving—the highlight of the GH thanksgiving episodes is always when the Q’s are SOCLOSE to having the traditional turkey when something goes wrong at the last second and they have to phone out for pizza. I do love that running gag!!!

    I agree totally, back up the car and go home and eat some turkey, you just killed one.

    That’s what I had plotted out as well. Now Alexis can be even more weaker under Julian’s thumb. BLACKMAIL it’s in the air!.

    Julian will blackmail Alexis to take him back, yup..

    theses drunk person hit&run’s whomever are common.. Y&R has used that one more than a couple of times..
    0ooh my neighbor (here) just told me it was a favorite plot on AMC, too, she said Brook.for one.

    Marzy Dotes replied

    She definitely hits Julian. He probably runs in front of the car preventing her from driving away plastered. I like that list of better targets in another post much, much better. But not Curtis. Someone’s got to rescue him from the Lets All Make Sonny the Mobster Feel Better storyline.

    Does Alexis mow down Julian? Probably not, but one can certainly hope. Lord knows he deserves it. Love Nancy Lee Grahn, she’s been knocking it out of the park not only recently but this entire year.

    Can we please get some skid marks on Kiki’s back? THAT would be wondrous!

    This sweeps period has got to be the dullest on record for General Hospital. One wonders what we’d be watching if Bryan Craig hadn’t opted to leave the show. These stories…save for Anna, Valentin and company…are a snooze-fest!

    Will Nick Stabile ever be returning as Nikolas? This is way overdue. Bring him back, Mr. Valentini!

    I wish it was Ava and Julian that she hit, maybe now,she will stop hitting the bottle. Not a good look for her.. Diane should be married to Sonny. She gets him..

  10. Msmean says:

    Looks to me like she hit Nathan, Julian witnesses it and will try to help her cover up. She wants her license to practice back at beginning of the year so she will go with the cover up. Plus she doesn’t want her girls to know she’s been drinking…

    Why did you let Carly an sonny get married
    Again only to put Carly back with Jax.

    Alexis is a weak wanna be who doesn’t really
    Have a part in the show except for being
    A wineo maybe this will spice up her life.

    Leave Franco an Elizabeth together continue
    To keep him a softy but don’t let him b to soft.

    Well, maybe Alexis could mistake the accelerator for the brake and ram into Sonny’s mansion thereby running down Sonny lounging on his black leather Lazy Boy while watching Bay Watch repeats.

    OK…you know what: I think that Alexis should MOW DOWN the following characters: Ava, Carly, Dante, Griffin, Jordan, Nina, Sonny and Spinelli.

    Just an idea……….

    Mr. Fairman,
    I would love to know if it’s true that TPTB are planning on redeeming Julian and how far they will go? That is, will they mow over Duke and Anna/Scorpio/Classic GH history in the process? The Jeromes are to Duke and Anna what the evil Cassadines are to the Spencers so if this is a continuation of tossing aside everything Classic GH to accommodate what’s considered hot at the moment (though I hardly think it will still be talked about even 3 years from now), it’ll only confirm the worst fears of lapsed fans. I do recall that Jelly said previously in one of your interviews that they wanted Anna to get her Justice for Duke. Since that hasn’t happened, I can only assume the execs/FV changed the direction to keep WD on canvas which is highly disappointing and much too late considering we haven’t had a chance to sympathize with him at all the entire time. He’s had very little POV. To fill it in now with what is inconsistent with his history and his almost slashing of his wife’s throat with the dagger that killed her mother is hideous at best. Thanks for your reporting as always.

    Hey, JMER,
    Great post….sympathy for a character has many faces.
    Now, I love WD, the actor. Not so the character. And, regardless of any redemption coming his way; I have a problem giving him tabula rasa.
    Everyone deserves a second chance, but, not Julian; not; Sonny; not anyone of this ilk…..not, when the same pernicious deeds are committed without the blink of an eye on a regular basis. It is pretty presumptuous of them….sticks to the craw when they keep getting away with it.
    So, I care not how much Julian loves Alexis. I care not if she may forgive him. I care not how popular a character Julian is with the ladies. I care not how enticingly perfect his derriere is……a cad is a cad is a cad.
    Furthermore, I have come to appreciate Alexis….I would be soooo disappointed if I had to revert back to my old concept of her.
    …..Follow your brain, Alexis !!!! Stay away the deep!!!!…..even the most beautiful, serene, invitingly blue waters are infested with sharks.
    I hope the writers listen to my oh, so sagacious words! LOL.
