204 October 5th, 2017 Who Is Oscar’s Father On General Hospital?

Courtesy/ABC

Josslyn’s (Eden McCoy) boyfriend, Oscar is a bit of mystery, and as all things are in Port Charles lives are often interconnected when you least expect it.

In story, Oscar played by Garren Stitt, has no idea who his bio-dad is.  Begging the question, who on the canvas is most likely to turn out to be the teenager’s father?

Many have speculated that the dad has to have ties to the mob, but it could be someone else on the canvas who works in the medical profession, law, or otherwise.

Make sure to watch Thursday’s GH, as Josslyn presses Oscar to investigate his past by imploring, “Wouldn’t you like to know who your father is?” 

So, post your theories in the comment section below.  Who do you think could turn out to be Oscar’s dad?

    It could be Finn. He so desperately wants a child.

    Honestly, who cares? Invest in the stories you have and stop creating endless new stories that never get resolved.

    Celia replied

    I know, right, David? But, like it or not, this will, indubitably, involve Sonny, one way or another.
    Another out-of-the-woodwork, illegitimate son? Grandson? The sperm king strikes again?

    Probably. Michael Easton had good chemistry with the kid who played Rafe and it was kind of dumb that they killed him off.. .perhaps this is a way to rectify that. Or if could give James DePaiva’s character an anchor to the show. Please don’t be Sonny’s!! :)

    Celia replied

    Yes, Jacob. I like that, too….DePaiva ( I keep forgetting the doc’s name) could be the father.
    This kid just appeared out of the blue.
    TPTB could be introducing younger characters; teens. Not much of a storyline if it does not involve teen stories. The same is going on with Y&R. These teens are introduced, “storyless”, where all the drama is about the adults, using the teens as a vessel.
    We adults are not interested and the teen viewer, if any watches, will find it lame, in my opinion.

    I think it is Seth Meyer making Oscar, Oscar Meyer.

    Celia replied

    Hmmmm……that’s a good assumption, Francesca; it would give both Finn and Oscar a familial tie.

    Ooooh, CeeCeeGirl!…That was a most excellent description regarding Sonny’s willy-nilly—yet albeit prolific—-sperm-casting activities across Port Charles, the continental USA and general globe-at-large! Couldn’t imagine a better way of calling a spade a spade! Kudos, mia amica! As for the actual man who sired junior gent, “Oscar Nero”–or whatever his real birthname happens to be?-It would seem the truth of that matter shall will out very soon. Whilst I would love a jaw-dropping denouement to that particularly perplexing puzzle, I guess we shall simply have to breathe a sigh of relief and thank our lucky stars if Sonny is not revealed to be the paternal DNA donor this time around! (And what a refreshing change of pace that would be, eh?)

    Shay replied

    Always welcome, CeeCee! Yes, the Oscar and Joss sweet-teen romance is a lovely little departure from all of the dark muck and mire of the current GH. (And the never-ending random assignations that have no real heart and soul whatsoever…) These sort of couplings used to be a soap staple and I miss them, along with the formerly-plentiful array of gorgeous, young romantic heartthrobs which once populated daytime! Not much to write home about these days! Having said that, I certainly hope that the forthcoming revelations regarding Oscar’s bio-daddy don’t split up this adorable junior twosome!

    Shay replied

    Or Silas Clay….Caleb….John McBain??? The possibilities are nearly endless when one considers Michael Easton’s many alter-egos whose characters have graced Post Charles in the past!

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Thanks, Shaybelle. Likewise.
    Yeah…let’s hope he is no relation to Sonny.
    Oscar may have simply been introduced as a little teen-love for Joss. So cute!! Brings back memories, does it not, Shay?

    Celia replied

    I eat your words up, Shay, LOL. You always make sense to me—never bruising that sense or sendibility.
    I consider Joss as a beatiful budding rose, and albeit I find this young, blooming love refreshing, Oscar is not the cutest boy in 9th grade. Yeah, I know …sono io–shallow and superficial.
    Regardless of their looks, I guess it won’t be long before these kids are both sorased. Too bad…I really reject the idea of aging Joss. I really like her. Oscar? Not so much. Not doing it for me. I’d like to see a good kid, yes….but one who can “mildly” raise Cain. LOL. Oscar is truly blah! …or is he a wolf is sheep’s clothing? I always liked good/bad boys at that age. Go figure!!
    Sigh….

    Shay replied

    Oh, yes, Francesca….Brenda is certainly a viable candidate as Oscar’s mother…particularly since she is known as having moved to Italy some years ago. (Yet, does that make her too obvious of a choice?) Of course, Nik also resided there for a time in a (Tuscan?) castle of which he had previously alluded. Both of these characters’ known past details could fit perfectly into the scenario of one or both being Oscar’s parents. Then again, we have such a full gallery of European dwelling former GH characters that specifically focusing upon these two could simply be wishful notions, as are most likely our looking for clues in the fascinating subject of Roman history, but it is a pleasant intellectual diversion to try to bring some meaning and insight into often baffling soap plotlines, even if our suppositions do become too fanciful when far more simple explanations often ultimately suffice! (Something to which I plead guilty and am frequently wont to do with CeeCee, another history/literature buff who also tends to read something deeper into everything! LOL.) Still, it is a harmless hobby and keeps “ze leetle grey cells”—ala Hercule Poirot!—working, no??? (Yes!) As for the surname “Nero?”….I was pondering whether anyone ever used “Mr. Black” as an alias on GH through the years, and I couldn’t come up with an answer….Even though Jerry was so extraordinarily fond of the “faux noms,” I didn’t find that particular one listed amongst his many phony monikers. As you so perhaps presciently suggested, maybe young Oscar even came up with this “red herring” of a colorfully-expressive and historically-loaded name himself, thus, is his actual endgame to bring down a certain “empire?” (Think Sonny’s? Wouldn’t that be rich?) Or more realistically speaking, we are probably simply too caught up in this brainteaser and it really just comes down to an individual on the GH writing team who has a thing for “Franco Nero” and decided to dub this pint-sized mystery man after the Italian acting legend! Hey, anything is possible!

    Celia replied

    You are right, of course, Shay…..”Much Ado About Nothing”. Oscar, more likely than not, is who he says he is, without heavy, innocuous baggage.
    Just one thing; Sonny does not procreate….he propagates. Here, there snd everywhere.
    A cornucopia, not of flowers, but of every specie of weeds.

    It’s going to be Andrew, “Billy Miller”, Jason’s brother who used to look like Jason.

    Of course, Linda. I like that, as well. Drew disappeared…has a new face…no memories….unrecognizable by his ‘son’, Oscar. Sounds good to me.

  4. Steve says:

    I think we all can agree that Sonny has enough prodigy on the canvas, so not him. Probably not either of the Jasons. Z. Julian and Scott also have their share of long lost offspring. So that leaves:

    Finn – but remember the last time they gave ME a long-lost relative. The Silas/Rafe relationship was snooze-worthy.

    Valentin – but isn’t already in too many storylines already.

    Griffin – that would really shoot the priest angle, plus now Deafd Duke would have a never met grandson

    Ned – interesting, but they won’t write that much story for him.

    Curtis – we don’t know his entire backstory. This would cause more drama for Jordan & he

    Andre – would finally give him a purpose on this show.

    My wildcard — Johnny Zachara. Oscar looks like he could be BB’s son

    Reply

    Celia replied

    I don’t find any of Sonny’s offspring as prodigies. One of the reasons Morgan is dubbed “moron”. Then, there’s Kristina—no smarts there, either. Dante? How did he get that badge? Avery is a baby…will she be a prodigy? Maybe.
    I do believe that therevmay be a few more of Sonny’s progeny spread around of whom we know nothing…..yet.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    God help us, CeeCee, but I believe that you are most likely correct that Sonny’s procreation streak has not yet reached completion. Still, I’m hoping Oscar won’t turn out to be one of his unfortunate, intellect-challenged offspring….it’s become such a cliche’ to be an illegitimate “Corinthos Kid” in Port Charles!

    sonniorsolita replied

    I think Steve meant to say “progeny,” not “prodigy.” Because like Celia said, none of the Corinthos next generation seems to be packing too many brain cells!

    Shay replied

    Oh, CeeCee…When it comes to unraveling the puzzle of young Oscar’s parentage, how I wish the writers were purposely being too clever by half in tossing out all these tantalizingly brilliant, hidden little clues (and even some red herrings) like breadcrumbs for us to gather, savor and ultimately, analyze (ala Agatha Christie…) However, I suspect we are just prone to seriously overthinking things and searching for underlying meanings where none actually exists, as has happened so many times before with GH storylines that often ended either nowhere or in a highly unsatisfying manner. Most likely, the key to Oscar’s biological origins are staring us right in the face and we are making the obvious connection far more complicated than need be. In other words, the Occam’s Razor principle is probably being applied here. But I do still wonder why and how the “Nero” surname was chosen for this character’s cover, since it would be a real treat if there were an actual rhyme and reason for its curious selection…especially if we figured it out beforehand!

    Celia replied

    LOL, Shay….my middle name is ‘looking for problems that aren’t there”. PC and its environs must be chock-full with dimpled, swarthy “products” of that extraordinary paradigm, Suave, Saint Sonny. Mayhap, the world!!
    He’s “like thunder….lightening….can’t lose a good thing…, knock on wood”. Ha.
    Considering Sonny has sewn his seed internationally, would it be that much of a stretch to assume Oscar Black is his?
    Footnote: Shaybelle….I think his name is really ‘Black’ and is using ( prodded by whomever his mother is ) the Italian translation as an alias. And, yes, the name may be directly linked to that crazy Claudian dynasty. HaHa.

    Shay replied

    I do believe you are right about that one, CeeCeeGirl! Might as well re-dub the town “Port Corinthos” in dubious honor of Sonny and his plentiful supply of progeny! Whilst this “Priapic Don’s” prodigious tendency to procreate would also make Oscar a prime candidate to join his “unlucky sperm club,” I am hoping that for the sake of that poor lad such is not the case…better his paterfamilia really is a Nero …or at least, a basic Black! I say anybody besides Slick Sonny would provide a more palatable choice of lineage for young Oscar….even one improbably linked to an ancient line of insane Roman rulers! Hmmmm…wonder if he plays the fiddle? (By the way, meant to say the key to Oscar’s origins IS staring us right in the face….my bad!)

    Mary Anne Buckles replied

    I waiting to find out he is Valentin’s son. More tough times froths Cassadines!

    Reply

    Shay replied

    For the love of God, please no more illegitimate issues for Sonny…enough is enough! To make Oscar’s pairing with Joss a true Romeo and Juliet storyline, his father needs to be someone who has a negative past history of being at odds with the Corinthos clan, so that would primarily mean Alcazars or Zaccaras, both tempting possibilities! The suggestion that the Wu family could be part of Oscar’s bloodline would also be a most interesting development, since I agree with the poster who says this kid has a vaguely Asian look about him. As for your other “Baby Daddy Candidates,” all I can add is I sincerely hope not, since none of these other characters really provides that much drama in terms of dealing with Carly—and by extension—-Sonny, were their son to be involved with Joss. Quite frankly, I’m not sure that I really care at this point who spawned this junior dude….especially if it means bringing on more newbies to expand his character’s actual purpose besides giving Jax’s daughter a beau.

    Reply

    Francesca Bruno replied

    I was struggling with myself trying to discern this child’s ethnicity.
    I must agree with you. His face does have Asian characteristics and the Wu family tie makes the most sense.

    Shay replied

    And yet, Francesca, Oscar has an Italian surname which could possibly indicate a European background…perhaps even a royal one? (Not another Cassadine?) I have been wondering if the choice of “Nero” holds some sort of significant clue as to this character’s true identity? It’s probably just a false moniker intended to conceal his real parentage, but it does beg the question of whom is his “Aggripina the Younger?” Hmmm….the plot thickens! (As for this young actor’s physical appearance, Garren actually rather reminds me of the decidedly non-Asian Joseph Gordon-Levitt when he played Tommy Solomon on “Third Rock from the Sun!” Perhaps he was tapped to play Oscar because he has such an ethnically-ambiguous look and thus could convincingly be a Wu, Cassadine, Alcazar, Zaccara, Corinthos, etc.? )

    Timmm replied

    Yeah, he could be related to Brad and then we MIGHT get to see him and Lucas? I think its Bensch’s kid. BUT, for Joss to like Oscar, Oscar has to be relted to a mob connection.

    Francesca Bruno replied

    Hi #Shay. The ladies in my circle of friends who watch GH believe that Oscar’s Agrippina is Brenda. But I do not recall Brenda as being ruthless.

    She could have married someone by the surname Nero, who adopted Oscar, but later left. It could also be a lie making Oscar not so innocent. Is he looking for revenge?
    Some of my friends insist it will be Dante receiving the shock of his life.
    Why the name Nero. It means black and it could be a symbol of evil.
    A family trait?

    Going back to Ancient Rome is brilliant. Nero was either mentally ill or a monster as he laughed playing his fiddle as Rome burned. He was the last of the “dinastia Giulio-Claudia”, as per, Giulio (Cesare) and Claudio.
    The legend among us Italians ( those of us who were born there) is that Nero was renamed after he started showing signs of having a black temperament.

    Oscar could be hiding a dark personality. This presents more and more reasons to believe he could be the spawn of all those men you have mentioned.
    He may also be related to Ava, the arsonist.

    Shay replied

    Hmmmm….could that possibly mean “Cesare”=”Cesar?” (As in Faison????)The plot thickens….

    Celia replied

    I don’t know if Francesca is using the name in the literary device sense of play-on-words…….that’s a very clever technique….I love it, especially if it is meant in reference to Faison.
    However, Giulio Cesare = Julius Caesar ( Anglicized, LOL). So, it could have been an accidental truth??
    I wonder if the writers are keen enough to bring Roman symbolism into the equation. Claudius and Agrippina were, indeed, Nero’s parents, and Nero fits the countenance of being Faison’s issue. Great theory that, but is Oscar his real name?
    I hope he is the product of one of Sonny’s enemies…..except, I’d not look forward watching Joss get hurt . Poor kid; her first puppy love? A puppy love which could turn into something more serious as they grow older? Sigh!! To be that young again!! Fresh, innocent love….
    Still…who’s the Mom?

Too short??

    Oh, CeeCeeGirl!!!!…Sonny’s “tainted blood?” LOL! The depth of your derision for this polarizing character is an endless font of hilarity….my compliments! I realize you cannot help yourself from so colorfully composing such comedic commentary…it comes as naturally as breathing! (Much like my expressions of boundless disdain for Alexis! Hey, we all have our bête noirs!)

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee….Glad you liked the “slampuppy” reference.. I glommed onto that lovely little term via a college friend from the Midwest….thought it was a warm and fuzzy way to describe someone who’s known for something not-so-cute and charming! Don’t you just love regional-speak? By the way, I think my all-time favorite word for a female of “loose morals” came from some childhood pals who hailed from Hingham, Mass…I won’t spell it out, but it’s probably not unfamiliar to you and yours given your own geographical specifics….Hint: Nine letters….Begins with a “p” and ends with an “e”…..and is an integral part of a hydroelectricity installation!!!! Got it? Lol.

    Shay replied

    Hey, CeeCeeGirl….I gather your “risqué reply” that failed to pass the moderator’s muster was in reference to the above “slampuppy” post? Well, yes, I can certainly understand why….which is the reason I was so discreet when I initially described said Massachusetts lingo for a particular sort of gal. But can you at least tell me this: Did you get my drift and is that still a popularly-used term in “Kennedy Country?” Inquiring minds want to know!

    Steve replied

    Rocco is ok because he’s really young, but do you think Maurice Bernard would agree to play the grandfather of a teenager almost old enough to drive?

    As you know, Jimmy, I have a lack of knowledge on most of GH history….So, why does everyone keep mentioning Dante? Was he involved with Brenda, too? I thought she was exclusively Sonny’s?
    Holy moly……it’s so ridiculous!! PC residents are as inbred as Vineyarders. The offspring, by medical logic, should all be deficient.

    Well, Shay…it’s like this…..I did get your drift. But, the word? I had to ask my husband. I made the mistake of elaborating. Ergo, the ‘deadbolt’ on my comment. LOL.

    Shay replied

    Well, CeeCeeGirl, I figured that even if you were not aware of that old chestnut of a term, your hubby had probably encountered it somewhere during the course of his life in the great state of Massachusetts….like a locker room, perhaps??? LOL. Keep in mind, it is certainly not in my usual arsenal of vocabulary words deployed to describe those femmes who are most prone to assuming the supine position! However, it is one deeply engrained in my memory due to the heady mix of great nostalgia for long ago summers and the immense shock that I still recall from being introduced to such a bold label at a rather impressionable age! (I practically gave my mother the vapors when I shared with her that little gem during what marked my tweener years!) Need I say more??? I think NOT!

    Celia replied

    @Shay.
    Maura West is a Bostonian, as well….or from the immediate area. Once in a while I catch a very distinct Bostonian intonation…fleetingly, but there.
    Massachusetts is known to have a language of its own—your word is not used as often; only one from Massachusetts would know….just as my husband and I are still dubbed “barneys” in Boston slang.

    this is going to go some where… I just don’t know how. he’s a good actor.. I wonder what he looks like behind those glasses.

    we haven’t even seen his bedside manner

    yeah, they could easily be father/son. I hope he’s hanging around… wouldn’t he be a much better doc @GH – then Michael Easton ‘ Finn ? he just isn’t going any where… same could be said for Franco.

    Yes, I like the idea of Alexis dating someone normal. I wonder if she’ll expect the good doctor ( that’s questionable….who is he, really!?) to prance around in his speedos underwear. Won’t compare to Julian’s backside, sigh!
    But, there are breathable elephant shaped speedies available. Hmmmm.

    Shay replied

    Oh, but CeeCee, “Alexis” and “normal” are not compatible concepts….this is a woman who thrives on danger and drama, so she craves only the likes of men who bring both of these negative aspects to her life! That’s what really turns her on…sure, Julian may look like an underwear model, but it’s the lethal aura of criminality that really seals the deal for her each and every time….think Sonny, Shawn, Jerry and Ric! Unrepentant bad boys all….Unless this doctor is not so good—as we seem to suspect—-then his chances at sweeping this character off her famously rounded heels is next to nil!!!!

    Celia replied

    Lol….what a picturesque scene you paint, Shay. Shawn? I don’t know who he is. I know Jerry, but had no idea he was one of her ‘boys’. And, Ric, of course, is Molly’s father, yes?
    I also know she had a thing going with Ned? ….or, was what I saw that fateful night when Julian and Olivia made Leo, a one-night stand?
    You really think Alexis is destined to sit in a fetid state of felonious limbo forever, when it comes to choosing a man?
    The good doc gives me the creeps. I may be wrong, but I smell a rat. I actually did smell two rats on Y&R instantly ( Zack and Graham)…… as it is wont to be the case, no one pays attention to my predictions. LOL.
    Dr. Bensch ( sp.), intruded himself into Kiki’s life out of nowhere….bells went off in my head. I may be wrong….perhaps he saw the talent and proficiency in her and acted upon it.
    Let’s just say I hope he’s a good guy and Alexis will prove to one and all, she’s on the road to salvation? Ha!!
    Somewhere along the way, I have developed a sort of ‘simpatia’ for her. Can’t explain it.

    Timmm replied

    Bensch is ONE of the only newer characters I am clinging to. I’m sure he will have skeletons BUT for now, I bet he is the one who called the dean and reported Parker. Alexis was happy they got caught and when she finds out Bensch was the caller, she will whip out one of her dresses from the eighties!

    Shay replied

    OMG, Timmmbo! You had my mouth all agape when I first read that Alexis “will whip out one of her….” Need I expound any further? I mean we are talking about a character well-known for her um, lack of modesty when it comes to displaying certain fulsome physical assets! Thank God you were only talking about vintage apparel! LOL. (Of course, I would expect nothing less, supreme gentleman that you are….)I don’t know though about Dr. Bensch….it seems like there may be a beast lurking behind those nerdy specs….and is it just me, or do I think his interest in the ladies may skew quite a bit younger, as in the fair and comely Kiki???

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Odd, eh, Shay? I don’t see my post. ….glad you got it, though.
    So, you agree about Dr. Bensch? As I said a few times, already; he rubs me the wrong way. That’s why I remarked Kiki should watch her back.
    He is way over-his-head where Kiki is concerned….too solicitous. He’s a ‘big’ doctor with a ‘big’ name…and, she’s basically an underling.
    Unless, ohhh, unless, he’s Silas Clay in disguise?? Maybe he is a vampire, related to Caleb, taking different human forms?
    This would explain his fatherly protection. Do vampires love their kin?
    I am glad you dispelled my concern for Timmm. LOL.

    Hey there, CeeCee!…..Per your remarks which indeed reached my inbox? (Yay!)–LOL!!!–and I do so hope our dear Timmmy was not traumatized by my cheeky comments about my favorite “whipping post!’ (No pun intended!)….I think he knows us well-enough to realize we are just two (and too…) fun-loving girls who share the same sort of wicked wit and no offense to his personal character would ever be intended….his gallantry is already safely established and well-documented here! At any rate, I’m not so sure the same will be able to be said about Dr. Bensch when all is said and done….there is something oddly off-putting about him that is screaming “Svengali” to me! Beware, beware, clueless Kiki….me thinks there is a whole lotta protege’ grooming going on here for you to be his “Dr.Trilby…and maybe even the object of some “Bensch pressing?” (Perhaps the canny and crafty Ava will eventually sniff him out after she finishes aiding “Patient 6″ and of course, devouring her latest prey, the fallen priest-boy!)

    Shay replied

    Yes, CeeCee….There is something about Dr. Bensch that gives me the heebie-jeebies…oh, it’s subtle, but it’s there, all right…..a rather crafty and cunning vibe lurking just below the surface masquerading in a supposedly benign, affable and well-meaning facade! Nope, I simply don’t trust him, either! The question is this MD’s motivation….is he merely a common, garden-variety letch or does he have a far more specific agenda beyond liking the girls young and pretty, as we both apparently suspect? Hard to say at this juncture, yet he most likely has some sinister connection to a previous Port Charles baddie! (But which one/s???? Back to the same old guessing games, at least for those of us who forever tend to make things nice and complicated! Hmmmmm….can you say Cassadines? That’s always the default GH “bensch”-mark for evildoing escapades, isn’t it mia amica????)

    However, my instinct are pretty sharp; and, unless the writers have yet to “assign” the doc to one specific role ( in their heads), which would not surprise me one bit, those instincts are screaming to scrutinize every aspect of this possible, semi-Dr. Frankenstein.
    A Cassadine, say you? Hmmmmm…..haven’t they also sown very fertile seeds globally?

    Shay replied

    Just to clarify, CeeCee, I don’t necessarily think that Dr. Bensch is related by blood to the Cassadine clan….but given his professional background, I’m thinking he could definitely be a past associate…perhaps he was part of Victor’s creepy Crichton-Clark house of bio-medical horrors, or dealt with Helena in reference to her many mad scientific experiments of yore! It would have been a great notion to have him attached to Liesl and her demented Swiss clinic, but since she’s pretty much persona non-grata in Port Charles these days, I doubt her influence will have much of a role in any upcoming mayhem, although I certainly wish to the contrary! (She’s one of my all-time favorite GH characters…ever!) Of course, we both may be looking for links that don’t exist…wouldn’t be the first time, eh? Quite frankly, I must compare our inclinations for such fanciful ruminations to those of daydreaming in class during our school years. I don’t know about you, but whenever I wasn’t being properly challenged or engaged in the presented subject matter, my unfettered thoughts took flight near, far and everywhere in-between. I do believe the same can be said about those unfulfilling, dead-end plots that have too often been a GH trademark during these past few years…they have served to fuel our seemingly endless quests for underlying meaning and purpose in far too many less-than-satisfying storylines! Anyway, thank you for the lovely compliment! And speaking of “words,” I do have to ask if your twin (Elle) and you were ever prone to “idioglossia?” I have known many sets of identicals in my life—mostly male….and what fascinating subjects they were!…LOL—although I have yet to encounter any who engaged in this particular phenomenon.

    Oscar, no excitement going on there..
    there is zero build up to anything concerning him.
    Who his father would be ehh who cores, there is absolutely no drama or anything interesting about it.

    Stories should have build up and a ”personality” ..
    these writers can not write good drama .. even the Ava and Steve break out was dull, no drama it had some little action but absolutely no Suspenseful drama.

    These stories are lackluster fails.. soaps are drama and GH is empty of suspense, intrigue, there’s nothing intense not even a cliffhanger, no on the edge moments, GH is empty of excitement.

    this twin story should be bursting with power drama and it’s been a sleeper..
    Steve wrestling with a couple of guys is not drama..

    Well, well, Francesca, it seems that your ladies’ circle may have been on to something when they (and you) posited the character of Brenda as being Oscar’s mother…there are internet rumblings that Vanessa M.is about to make a return appearance in Port Charles, which is suspiciously convenient given this particular storyline. The rumors also suggest that little “Nero” may not have the exotic pedigree many of us dreamed up for him on this thread, but something much “closer to home,” although I sort of hope not. That would definitely “color me disappointed” after all the exciting speculation which has ensued here.

    He is kind of quirky like Spinelli. That would make him like one of the family. Knowing this show, the father will be some mortal enemy of Sonny’s. I have heard rumblings that Oscar is Lucien, Brenda’s son. But that would make everyone look really stupid! Kids don’t change that much from youngster to teenager, and Sonny was the kids stepfather for about 7 minutes. Could be anyone…Franco, Finn, either Jason… possibilities are endless. Even AJ!

    ” Kids don’t change that much from youngster to teenager”…

    Really?

    How long have you been watching this show??

    Remember that Josslyn herself should actually be about 3 years younger than Jason’s son Jake. Jake was about 4 years old when he supposedly “died” and Joss was still in diapers then. Now she’s 14 and he’s about 10.

    Actually the kid that Brenda had with Balkan Jr. would be roughly the same age as Joss, so if they were both SORASed to be the same age, that would at least be somewhat “logical” in soap terms. It’s not likely though, because if Brenda was his mother, we would all know that by now.. and last I heard, Vanessa was working for the direct competition (or at least it is on HellCable)

    There is a certain physical resemblance between Spinelli and Oscar, but does this kiddo possess super cyber skills and a superior vocabulary? That would be a more conclusive proof of paternity than any DNA test could provide!

    Joss and Oscar, whether he is Sonny’s son or not, are not siblings….no bloodline; no shared DNA. Sonny is not Joss’ bio dad.

    When they had the original kid playing Oscar (he was only in about two episodes) I thought they were going to make him an Alcazar offspring – because we all know that Jason never killed Alcazar (a favor to his “sister” Skye) and just evicted his ass out of the country instead.

    But then they did the quick recast to this kid, so they clearly abandoned the Alcazar idea. This kid does like he could be part Asian though, so possibly a tie to the Wu family from the old Asian quarter storyline.

    I am accepting Jocelyn

    WHATS ruining this – her mom and Sonny !

    Carly does not have a sensitive bone in her body. even with Sonny , she’s a jack deer tractor. with a loud mouth

    she’s already run roughshod over Oscar…. and Sonny with his bodyguards… trying to get all cute as Oscar mistook him for a park perv.

    look at what is happening to Nelle… is this a rerun of “Carly” at that age ? god.. I can’t keep up with all of Nelle past now. Michael is the worst acted character, ever.

    if you look at Nelle.. she looks confused … as if even she doesn’t know what’s going on. ALL this for : the worst couple on the show ? what a distraction of what’s going on. Yeah… i’m biting

    Yeah, I’m biting : hold on… not because this is good… story or writing… it’s because of the three MEN as actors who are hopefully trying to make this work.

    Roger Howarth – try as I might… I still do not want him with Liz. it struck me yesterday when Franco and “Drew” struck a chord.

    “why is it that we do what we do.” it was affecting

    as for Steve Burton… I still think his eyes are ahead of his acting… pan back and let him speak.. intelligibly.

    it was thrill and chill some… when “Drew” picked up SAM PHONE !!!!! WOAH. with STEVEBURTON on the other end.

    OK … these three men…. not the writing or characters who are bringing their presence to the show.

    OK – here me out. Anna and Finn. it’s a waste of time to continue to give Michael Easton any further time.

    it’s actually a sad state for Anna… she hasn’t worked since Paul Hornsby was fired. this cute banter back and forth is just that… nothing more than propping and it’s painful watching Anna go thru this… and it’s not really about Valentin after all this time. they need to just let this go and write Anna a story of her own. this is too cutesy cutesy for ME Finn.

    I certainly HOPE that Oscar is not his. GH has plenty of male actors who can cover. Dr. Bensch is certainly intriguing… bye bye Finn. as I’ve posted.. he’s just not their.

    Griffin : they may as well go all the way… and see the outcome or downfall of Griffin and Ava. dag! she’s so good with all the men anyway.. I really thought I saw something with her doctor as well.

    I am certain the good majority of GH fans can take or leave his righteous behavior as PRIEST. over this and over him … if he doesn’t start acting… he’s perfect fodder, we know next to nothing about what animal instinct he desires. what drives . over here

    Steve burton has a run in with the priest. has an encounter with Griffin.. and lands a phone. that’s where I left off. okey dokey…

    not exactly flatlining , it’s going to be a really hoochey coochey watching him ACT , with Billy Miller and Roger Howarth.

I swear his facial expression .. he needs a good slap. heave ho him out Nelle. you are stuck in this .. being related to Carly. it’s a damn shame.. as i’m still loitering for Nelle to break out.

    ONE – 1 – prop for Sam. when “Drew” went in to his seizures… dang ! I was caught up.. but… didn’t it surprise you and ME to see Sam panic, crying, and wailing about for her lover.

    course it was ad nauseum watching Monica tell Sam… this is was all because of her ( Sam ) that Jason/Drew came back to us.

    As for Oscar, I don’t really care much about who his parents are. But I do like him with Josselyn. In fact I’m having a hard time being interested in any GH stories right now, if that’s what you want to call them. You know…a ittle bit of this, a little bit of that…most of which have no continuity, or nothing to do with legacy GH at all. But I will admit to not minding the ManLanders story as a bit of light hearted relief, and a chance to give other characters a place in Port Charles.

    I’m still loyal to GH, and it has become an afternoon habit. But as I mentioned before I have been finding a bit of a substitute from our soaps, and certainly real life weather to politics drama by watching reruns of “Murder She Wrote.” Easy stories, which even feature a lot of our soap actors in guest appearances (even Helena), the same as Castle has done. And even other notable actors…Magnum PI, George Clooney.

    The shows are taped in advance so they couldnt help the gun pointing EXCEPT, why would they have Laura even do this in the first place? She is a middle aged women who should have some sense? This is something Luke would do! I know her son is dead but he died a year ago, what took her so long? It was a cheap scene just to get her on screen! Once AGAIN, Genie returns to GH and they have NOTHING for her to do! She should go back to DOOL or Y&R!

    Timmm – “thank You” for reading the same thing

    HOW exactly did Valentin “force” that little pipsqueak of a daughter , or as I like to call her… Momma Smurph, – agreeing – to the shared custody that got Laura so excitable

    I’ve grown use to seeing Charlotte with Dante and lulu and Rocco

    so much for great storytelling… as the writers usually do… the intensity wanes and .. what do we get

    I though perhaps Laura was amped up from a – good – candy bar

    she doesn’t stop till the door shuts.. with her steely eye @ valentin still fully loaded

    is GH giving Laura some Tracy traits ? is this the mother of… trotting out her full throttle for just Lulu ? would be much more charged had it been for Nickolas or Lucky

    Dr. Kevin should think twice about moving her in . It just rankled me a little bit, to see Laura acting in this manner… because of… the Corinthos clan does it why not me ?

    GH is dragging this out.. because of their lack of writing.. and it still keeps what characters who are not Corinthos , in the mix.

    I’ve lost some steam even when it comes to Valentin and Nina.. because GH writers do not give them any thing to do

    UP IN ARMS PEOPLE

    it can’t be just about the Corinthos dullard clan.

    what is the end game… that Steve Burton Jason falls in love with Ava ?

    dag .. so now he’s missing 5 years of his life.

    so many characters left in limbo or going nowhere…

    got time for another Sonny and Carly show

    Oh, Lordy, Lord, Patrick….magic words thou speaketh: “Steve Burton Jason falls in love with Ava?”. How sweet it is to read those words…”ain’t” that just the sweetest, creamiest, richest irony, with a cherry on top, that ever hit the royals of PC??
    Imagine Sonny stuttering and Carly sputtering!!!!! And Sam? Get the smelling salts…she has the vapors. Ha!!
    Poor Billy/Jason/Jake/Drew????? What will he do? He will be so overwhelmed, the muttering will be shocked right out of him, pronto. Problem solved.
    “Bend me, shape me, any way you want me”….what glee!!! That’s how happy I would be!!

    @Timmm….I really didn’t have a problem with Laura’s gun scene….I think it quite handily drove home the anger and despair she was directing at Valentin. The fact that this was rather atypical behavior for her made the impact of the situation all the more palpable. It’s not as if Laura were a regular “pistol-pointin’ mama” whose firearm is her constant companion….she only packs heat for truly special occasions! (Unlike Sonny, Ava, et al, whose depiction of gratuitous mob violence with their ever-ready, omnipresent weaponry has always been so cliche’, overdone and unnecessary…it didn’t even make for interesting storytelling!)

    Timmm and Shay….I am so torn here….for whom to root? I like both Valentin and Laura.
    I can’t be sure that Valentin is what he is purported to be. The fact that I do ‘accept’ Valentin probably obfuscates my thinking….I don’t know.
    I wonder if we will ever know ….is Valentin a really bad hombre? Is Nikolas alive? What was the Russia thing all about? Why did all the shenanigans take place there?
    …so many countries to choose…but, it had to be Russia? And how did SB Jason end up there? Makes no sense, unless he had been Nikolas.
    Will this be a prolonged story with no end? Such theme has become sooooo commonplace with GH since I’ve been watching…..I can’t help coming to that conclusion.

    Cee, I just feel that when Helena said Valentin was the worst Cassadine ever, they simply rethought the character before he hit the canvas. Remember, after she said that, it took a couple years before the character arrived and the writing staff did change from then to now.

    Shay replied

    @CeeCee…As you have stated, many questions are still unanswered where Valentin is concerned. (See my above response to Timmmbo….) Since we were so inclined to analyze and latch onto Helena’s every word during her reign of mirthful malevolence and misdeeds, I suppose anything less than a totally diabolical madman would not suffice given our hyped-up, preconceived notions of this most mysterious of Cassadines. I’ve yet to be satisfied that Valentin is not harboring a much darker persona and is simply delaying its emergence for a more opportune moment. Having said that, I cannot blame Laura for her highly suspicious nature where he is concerned, when one considers her lengthy and terrifying past experiences with this deeply creepy clan.

    Celia replied

    You’re right, T. Valentin is certainly not what we expected, albeit there’s still that ‘iffy’, air of mystery about him. I see the softness in him, at times, with an almost child-like quality, which can be very endearing….ergo, the confusion. He elicits compassion from me…go figure!

    Timmm replied

    He cannot be as bad as Helena described with that wonderful relationship he has when Charlotte! I LOVE when she calls him Poppa.

    Shay replied

    Yes, Timmm, I am sure a major amount of revisionism occurred on the part of the writers in the subsequent form of the Valentin they actually presented in Port Charles some years after Helena’s initial mention of him. Unfortunately, for those of us who took her vividly wicked description to heart, the later rethink of his character provided much disappointment, and perhaps, even the false impression that he would eventually live up to her poisonous assessment. Hence some of us remain waiting for the other shoe to drop on this mystery man’s possible split personality or another plot twist, like maybe a false identity, with the real Valentin still lurking somewhere in the shadows just waiting for the right moment to reveal himself.

    Maybe Valentin was only suppose to have a six week run, reek havoc on our lovely PC residents and die BUT they loved JPS so much they softened him to keep him around?

    Celia replied

    Wow, Shay!!!! ….never thought of THAT plot twist. Valentin not Valentin? In.te.re.sting ( think “Laugh-in, LOL).
    I do agree with our Timmm, as well……perhaps James’ run was supposed to be a short one and his favorable acceptance by the fans propelled the PTB to extend his tenure by de-cassadining him and making him human.
    I only have one problem with Valentin ( If I’ve already pointed this out, I apologize) ….that is, his French. If one is to employ a different language, and James does master the accent, then one must pronounce the words correctly…as we know, French has gender distinction, as does almost every European language.
    It irks me when Valentin calls Charlotte ‘petit’ instead of ‘petite’, the feminine form. When the letter ‘t’ is followed by a vowel, the ‘t’ is stressed.
    That’s all…..other than that, I find him enchanting.

    Shay replied

    Also possible, Timmm! It seems to me that Ron C previously had a Valentin story simmering in the pipeline before he departed GH and there was actually another actor (Matt Borlenghi) cast in the role. I think he even posted about filming a few scenes as the odd Cassadine out before the plug was pulled on the plot which never saw the light of day. In it was a much darker Valentin who was more in line with the one touted by Helena. As for JPS, I don’t doubt that his considerable appeal has reconfigured the initial description of this character as inherently and irredeemably evil, but he can’t go too far with the warm and fuzzy stuff or his cred as a Cassadine will be totally undermined.

    “TAT” just jumped out at me, but for a different reason. It goes along with comments from Francesca. Then mix in the nostalgic feelings you can get at Thanksgiving.

    My family has come from Italian immigrants. One of Grandpa’s first businesses was a bar/ restaurant called TAT, named after the Transcontinental Air Transport inspired when one of their planes flew over. My name comes from my Grandmother, Rosina. Later they established a beautiful restaurant which is still remembered by many. And always they were both greatly thankful of what they were able to achieve in America. And they in return gave back in our community.

    So to all of you have a nice Thanksgiving. I’m going to get started on mine with the Macy’s parade.

    By the way, Tony Geary was on the “Murder She Wrote” 1989 rerun I watched last night. Episode is “From Russia With Blood.” He plays a KGB agent with a Russian accent. Much more enjoyable than Fluke.

    Rebecca…Mary Mae’s name came up when Ned was talking with Laura. He mentioned that he was excited about ELQ’s redevelopment of Charles St…” Wasn’t this area familiar to Laura?” It was…Luke and Laura had bought Mary Mae’s house there when Laura decided she wanted to settle down (this was hard for Luke), and Laura recounted how she and Mary Mae became good friends and started an orphanage, and then had to battle the Q’s because they wanted to buy up the area for a toxic waste dump. Ned assured here that the new redevelopment was going to be non-toxic and on the up and up.

    rebecca1 replied

    thanks…I heard something of the exchange but didn’t hear Mary Mae…

    By the way, why didn’t “Jason” aka Billy ask Monica to join them for Thanksgiving! LOL…she was like…”I’m going to be all alone and he was like…”see ya! gotta get to my mother-in-law…” ahahahha…I thought that was too funny. It took the noble Ned to do the right thing. But I knew something like that had to happen; they couldn’t break tradition and have a non-pizza Thanksgiving and abandon Monica!

    Okay, now getting back to soap business. Not sure if there is a pure Jason Morgan anymore. Seems that Jason 6 has incorporated a not-so-often-seen-before sensitivity. And Jason/Drew a more knee jerk anger. Where they are the same is that they have always been untrusting at the best of times.

    So who the final Jason Morgan turns out to be is still a ? for me. But not quite the Jason we remember imo. But like some other commenters I don’t like seeing Jason/Drew being discounted so easily by his “friends.” Not very nice. And I have been wondering how the purchase of Aurora/Crimson communications will work out since Jason/Drew used Jason 6′s money. Or is it the other way around?

    Would a DNA on the shared kids between Sam/Liz/ and Jason?Drew/Jason 6 reveal anything?

    rebecca1 replied

    I think Jake/Billy/Jason is the original Jason Q. So, if he is…then is the money he spent in Jason Quartermaine’s name or Jason Morgan’s?

    Happy Thanksgiving, Rose! (By the way, I think I told you…that was my grandmother’s name…and I was named after her, thus, the “R”.)

    There is room to bring up Valerie father since Laura and Ned brought up Mary Mae Wards name yesterday. He could be Mary Mae and Edward Q,s grandson, Justice Ward. And I cant help but think Nathan’s dad is a Cassadine.

    Reply

    rebecca1 replied

    I didn’t even hear them bring up Mary Mae. That would be interesting…Justice as Valerie’s father. But he never would have abandoned Valerie. If I recall she never met her father…doesn’t make sense that she wouldn’t have known him. I’m thinking maybe it is Aunt Stella’s old flame! That would be ironic…Stella liked Valerie enough to try to fix her up with Curtis. And not one person from Valerie to “inquiring-minds-wants-to-know” Bobbie tries to find out??? Jocelyn has put in more effort to find Oscar’s fathe than Valerie and Nathan et company to find out who their respective fathers are…

    The entire Valerie character was/is so badly underused. What was the point of introducing her, injecting a racial element into the story…and not following up with any of it? The actress is gorgeous, she can act…and I have no clue what the writers could have been thinking: “Let’s introduce a new Spencer, she’ll be bi-racial, she’ll come between Dante and Lulu…and then…” NOTHING!

    They’re writers!!!! They need to flesh out characters! They introduce a new character to a core family and then drop her? Makes absolutely no sense. But, yay! We get Aunt Stella? Ummmmm…they have budget for “Aunt Stella” but they couldn’t write for a Spencer cousin/niece…they barely mention her, she’s never seen with Bobby or Carly (I get Lulu and Dante because of what transpired) but Bobby? Carly? Just really incredibly poor storyboard planning on the part of the writers.

    As for Nathan? When it was at the “height” of the mystery…when Dr. O, Britt and Nathan, along with Faison, Victor Cassadine were central to a few stories..why didn’t we get an answer then? Why was it never discussed among characters afterward?

    Apparently the writers have short-term memory loss or they think we do.
