Nina Reeves, Curtis Ashford, Esme Prince.

When it is about General Hospital, every fan has their own opinions – as SoapsSpoiler.Com is no different. Over the course of the past five weeks, we watched the good as well as the bad and everything between. We lead with hope. However, sometimes we don’t achieve what we desire. Here’s a recap of the week GH had.

What I’m Feeling This Week: Validation (Laura Spencer Finds Out Old Esme’s Back)

I’m not lying I’m not going to lie, when Laura (Genie Francis) discovered she was right that Esme (Avery Kristen Pohl) actually had memories I was filled with a sense relief, satisfaction and confidence. I’m sorry the fact that Kevin’s husband Kevin ended up as collateral injury. Laura is a great individual; however, I think she was shrewd and thoughtful too. In this instance she was blind.

I’m not sure how she put a hundred percent Good Esme. The point is that she stood up for the girl and protected her. She put her and Ace to live in a new home. She basically offered Esme an entire new life, simply because she couldn’t recall the person she used to be. The argument of nurture versus nature is not applicable here. This is especially true when Esme is the descendant she shares together with Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) and Heather (Alley Mills) which make her genetic material. Not because her past actions have brought about the wrath of many people in Port Charles including, Spencer, Trina, and Ava.

I am so sorry Laura got such terrible wake-up calls, however in this instance it is the sole way for her to be able to see she had was backing the wrong person.

Other GH Thoughts

Hard Pass: Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Brick (Stephen A. Smith). Brick plays his flirting game on thick…real heavy. I’m still glued to Jordan as well as Zeke (Gavin Houston). It’s not likely that I’ll leave them anytime in the near future. I’m not sure why that relationship never took place. It was a moment of drama, considering that he’s Portia’s younger brother. Portia (Brook Kerr) is now engaged to Jordan’s ex-husband Curtis (Donnell Turner).

The Ugh: Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) with different motives. Diane was the reason I didn’t comprehend the argument she was having to make with Robert (Tristan Rogers) over Sonny. It was too much, and it made me want to go with Robert. I usually like Diane’s ferocity however, her passion for Robert does not seem to work for me in this tense exchange that has morphed into a bluster.

For Sonny I’m guessing that I’m disappointed in him for not giving Nina the respect she deserves. All that’s needed is.

My Favorite Interactions Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina as well as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero). Although Nina committed the actions, she did to cover up her sins I tend to root for the underdog that is fighting to get the life they deserve. It’s tough to watch a person being beaten down by everyone repeatedly even though they’re not entitled to it. When Olivia approached her calmly and didn’t heap further drama onto Nina I was awestruck. It’s a little crazy considering how the whole thing had a negative impact on her husband. I’m hoping Nina will listen to Olivia’s wisdom on being able to move on.

And Valentin as Nina’s ride-or-die character was a blast, too. Carly (Laura Wright) has a whole community around her. She’s got great support and a brand-new business to manage. I’m looking forward to seeing how Nina is able to dig herself through this rut and also the people who will not kick dust on her grave. In the last week, Valentin suggested to Nina an option to get rid of Carly but, to date she hasn’t taken his offer. I was awed when she was told this by him:

A part of me wants Nina to join forces with Valentin however, I’m happy that her efforts to gain from the whole situation. Nina needs to settle down and relax for a few minutes. And take a deep breath. ….

New Commissioner Talk the Commissioner Talk: I’m fine having Laura discussing with Anna (Finola Hughes) about taking over the Commissioner’s position. The actress could complete the task in asleep. But didn’t Jordan speak to Taggert (Real Andrews) about the job at one point in time? Where is Jordan? He was supposed to be at Trina’s party to celebrate her departure. There was a need for explanation.

Portia Praise Portia Praise although she does have moments, she appears to be easing towards or even accepting Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) in her daughter’s life. However, When Laura admitted to Portia over her fierce defense of Esme, I felt that I was in Portia still holding onto her hatred for Esme.

What’s the Surrogacy Story: I’m happy for Molly, TJ (Tajh Bellow) and Kristina. However, the plot is also moving at a rapid pace. It’s that the show must be patient and wait for me to catch up. I’m still struggling to grasp the bond between the sisters. Kate Mansi and Kristen Vaganos are wonderful in their roles but I’m still not feeling anything. I’m hoping that the show can find how to hook me.

She Can Come Back Anytime: Alley Mills. In the role of Heather Webber, Mills fits the role perfectly. The scenes with Laura as well as Heather in Pentonville were fantastic. Laura was Laura shake all the time. All she had to do was speak information and facts regarding her child. This was done in order to ensure that Esme to be sent to prison so that she would be able to watch over her. In addition, she wanted to prevent Esme from destroying her life due to the desire for revenge. Only a mother who is twisted like Heather could have this kind of reasoning.
