Dateline Port Charles: Prince of Darkness

Esme Prince

All we know about her is that she's adopted and oozes evil from every pore. Who is she really and what's her game?

Does anyone know what Ingo specifically said about Cassandra?

by Anonymousreply 6November 8, 2021 5:09 PM

R6 I think according to Nancy, Ingo misgendered Cassandra and because of a post he shared on his social media from a conservative personality with side by side images of transgender 4 star officer Dr. Rachel Levine and soon to be Lt. Governor Winsome Sears and Ingo added his own commentary.

[Quote]"Always search for the truth and be open to the fact it might come from a source you might not always agree with."

Cassandra has said that Ingo's misgendering transgender people is violence.

by Anonymousreply 7November 8, 2021 7:00 PM

So he never actually said anything about Cassandra or her character Terry. Ingo is a massive POS, but it's wrong to make this issue GH-centric. Now he just gets more to whine about and get martyr points on Parler.

REVEALED----->>>SPOILER----->>>Last Warning------>>Esmes real identity...She is Lila Corinthos!!...Look at the GH canvas from when she would have been born--and factor in the SORAS......Esme is about the same age as Cameron. He was born in 2004. Spencer in 2006...She would be in that range. In that same time frame--who else in Port Charles had a major baby storyline then?....Sam McCall was pregnant with Sonnys DAUGHTER!!!.....Helena hated Sam and knew she was Alexis daughter even before Alexis did (she said so years ago)--so she wanted to eliminate any other illigitimate heirs to the Cassadine Fortune. She stole the child and faked Lilas death!!...Just like she faked Jakes death!!....Yes. Esme is indeed Lila Corinthos!!!. She was switched by Helena. She hates Joss because Esme believes SHE should have grown up in Poppas house. ..Esme might have a weird fascination with Ryan but that is just a Red Herring.....She is Sonny and Sams daughter!!!....I honestly believe I solved it....

Is anything happening with Brad and his ties to the Asian mob? This is a story I have wanted ever since Brad was introduced. I loved the old Asian mob story with the Ancient One and Jade, who who maybe could be Brad's mother and that good looking Asian guy Jade was involved with. And little 6 year old Robin was a big part of that story. It was a wonderful story and I hope they are going to revisit it. If they don't want to bring back Luke they can go the route of Brad and Britt's friendship.

They could have just let Brad out on parole without even mentioning any ties to the Asian mob, so there's likely more to the story.

Esme is either Kikis Twin (possible), or Lila Corinthos...I really think Lila is more interesting...I think she was probably raised by Helena or someone Helena chose.

I'm sure Jason will be presumed dead to leave open the possibility of Steve Burton returning either when the Disney vaccine requirement ends or when Steve Burton decides to get vaccinated. I doubt they will replace him with another actor, having tried that before with Billy Miller. Howarth originated the role of Todd Manning and, after he left, was replaced with Trevor St. John (until he was retconned to be Todd's twin brother). They played the role very differently. Howard played Todd with a combination of nastiness and self-hatred. St. John's interpretation didn't have the self-hatred; he was just sadistic. He only showed a soft side towards his children, but never toward his women (e.g., Tea) or his sister (Viki). On the other hand, St. John was a sexy devil and the much hotter of the two Todds. I could easily see myself entering into a serious BDSM relationship with him.

I was thinking the same thing. The Cassadine island story has been moving rather slow ever since they reintroduced Victor, but since Jason and Britt arrived, it's moving like molasses.

Found myself thinking they were dragging it out to the very last minute to keep Jason on the show as long as possible since (supposedly), he is a ratings draw.

I celebrated when Young & Restless finally cut Daniel Goddard loose. Cane and Lilly have got to be two of the most overrated actors in daytime (except for Mumbles and FunkyFace Jason)...And Daniel hasn't worked for years. ...FYI = Kelly Monocos ex died so don't be surprised if she takes some off time. She is already milking the publicity out of it.

From her sister: You may have heard of WD (Wilson’s Disease) in the news because scam @Valeant bought the medicine, didn't improve it but jacked the price from $500 to $24,000 for a 30-day supply. For most patients, this is unaffordable & a death sentence OR taxpayers pay via Medicare. Sadly, this had a tragic impact on Bergen. As the neurological damage of WD started to impact her speech, which is very common, she would stutter or slur her words. I don't know the details but essentially she was accused of being drunk or on drugs and dropped from GH. She went through a year or so BEGGING writers & directors to keep Big Alice on #GH so she could keep getting health benefits from @sagaftra (benefits are based on work) She ended up losing her health care for a while & had to go without the medicine which deteriorated her health.

Right now what I want most is for Sonny to dump bitch Carly for Nina and for good. For some irony I'd like Howarth's character to turn out to be gay and for him to have a huge love relationship with TSJ's character when he comes to town. If you never watched the first few episodes of OLTL online let me tell you that no one can play a sex scene like TSJ. It's as close to porn as one can get on TV and the irony would be him doing it with RH instead a female character. RH because TSJ replaced him on OLTL when everyone said no one could ever replace Todd, and from I heard RH believed that too and was in for quite the shock.

Chase reminds me of the masculine guy you pick up at the bar, you take him home, and then he is super bottom and girly when his clothes come off. Hate those guys.....Anyways Rumors are flying Chase is exiting which makes sense since they are trying to get an expensive actor like Trevor St. John.

R190 Which is the type of story I see him and Brook Lynn in. A schemer and a good cop is a fun light story.

Sam is with Dante now, so I predict that Britt and Drew will bond and get together and at some point when the vax mandate is lifted or SB runs out of money, Jason will return to cause drama for them.

I don't think TSJ is actually going to play Jason, they could go with another imposter Jason, but I doubt they will go down that route again. From what I understand, TSJ wasn't happy when OLTL brought RH back and made him Todd again and turned TSJ's Todd into Victor, Jr. I don't see him putting himself in that position again. And, he would have to know that is what would happen. Jason isn't needed on canvas right now.

I love these Anti-Vaxxers trying to claim Religious Exceptions....Based on WHAT?...

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 194November 24, 2021 3:39 AM

There are very few Christians, I could see actually having a valid religious exemption. Christian Scientists, Jehovah's Witnesses, The Amish, are a few, only because they have well known objections to various aspects of modern medicine. Most Christian denominations, from very conservative to very liberal, do not have objections to routine medical care, including vaccinations. The only way the average Christian could claim an honest exemption would be if the vaccine in some way employed aborted fetal remains of some sort. Some are trying to say it is the mark of the beast, but since it doesn't actually leave a mark and requires multiple shots and boosters, it doesn't meet the requirement laid out in scripture.

Now, people are free to argue against vaccine mandates based on other civil liberty grounds. But, I detest when people use the cloak of religion when it has nothing to do with it.

With Jason and Jax both gone, there has to be somebody new for her to turn to.

Actually I can't see any woman on the show that is a good fit for RH other than Liz or strangely, Carly. Or they should have hired what's her face who played Tea on OLTL. They were great together and have proven chemistry and then TSJ's character could be a spoiler in their relationship. GH has to know there ware many OLTL fans out there that want to see something that used to be on their show. We can't have Tea and Todd and Victor outright but can sort of have them with new names.

In the Gatlin-Holt family tree, there is a half-brother to Austin named Jonah. I can't recall if his whereabouts have been mentioned at all, or if he is even still alive.
