Breaking Point: GH

Now that Lucky has finally let Nikolas and Liz know that he is aware they have been sleeping together, I can almost understand why General Hospital decided to postpone this confrontation...almost. It was definitely a great soap moment in that revenge-is-a-dish-best-served-cold kind of way, but I have to wonder what it says about Lucky that he had to spend several days drinking before he could ever confront Liz. This is just another reason why I continue to be annoyed by the fact that Lucky's reaction was not immediate, but I digress.




The Confrontation Part 1

Sober or not, Lucky finally said everything to Liz that I had been hoping someone would say to her for weeks. Unfortunately, as Luke pointed out, Lucky will likely regret every word he let flow out of his mouth, which will allow for the possibility of Liz becoming a sympathetic character again. And even though this will undoubtedly happen at some point, I cannot say that I am ready for it to happen just yet. In fact one of my favorite moments throughout Lucky's speech was when Carly knocked on the door. Out of everyone in Port Charles Carly is the last person that Liz would want hearing about her affair, so the fact that Carly showed up when she did was nothing short of brilliant. My only disappointment was that she kept her comments to herself until she went to see Jason, but since she is not one to remain silent for long I suspect she will have something to say to Liz soon enough. Although she may have to wait in line behind Lulu who will likely have a few choice words of her own for Liz, especially if Lucky continues his downward spiral.




The Confrontation Part 2

If I have one complaint about Lucky's tirade it would be when he said to Liz "What happened to that precious little girl I found trembling in the snow? I'll always love her." That 'precious little girl' had just been raped, which begs the question, is that how Lucky has always seen her, as a victim? And is that what he loves about her? I like the fact that he left Liz's house in a way that showcased his heartbreak amid all the anger, but I am not sure referencing her rape was the best way to do that.

  1. It's interesting that you think Lucky only loved her because she was a victim (or at least that the writers are presenting it this way. My memory of their whole relationship is that he fell in love with her as he watched her become a stronger person as she admitted she was raped and then confronted her attacker. That Elizabeth had strength and honesty and integrity. I do wish he hadn't referred to her as a "little girl" though. And why wasn't Nikolas referred to as a slut and whore as well. At least Lucky recognized later how awful that language is, unlike every other man on the show who uses it.

    It is not so much that I think Lucky loved the victim in Liz all these years, but that line seemed to suggest that that is what he loved about her. I think they could have had him say something else to her there that would have been a little more appropriate in that situation. References to the rape seem to keep coming into every conversation even when it doesn't make sense for them to be there.

  3. Paula,

    I think it would have been better had he mentioned their first wedding (I wasn't exactly watching at that time, but the flashback looked interesting) but you know, when you're drunk, you say all kinds of things you'll probably regret. Well, that's what I've heard.

    It's hard for me to find compassion for people like Elizabeth's character because clearly they crossed the line and should expect the consequences. Obviously, according to the writers, she still may have unfinished business about what happened to her in the past. Still, even when she was openly sobbing, I couldn't help but, you know, think unkind thoughts.

    Can't wait for your take on today - all I have to say was where was Steve?

  4. Hi Peggy!

    Yeah, I agree it would have been better if Lucky had referenced their first wedding, or any other moment that had nothing to do with the rape. I don't understand why they keep having to bring that up at the most inappropriate times.

    I can't feel sorry for Liz either, but I can already see that the show is trying to foster sympathy for her by the way that she acted during Lulu's speech today, and then later when Ethan took pity on her. Not to mention how Jason defended her to Carly.

    Everyone has been wondering where Steve was today. That was kind of weird that he wasn't there to defend Liz. Isn't he supposed to be like her protector right now or something?

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
