Mother Knows Best: How Should GH’s Alexis Davis Handle Kristina?

Will mother and daughter find common ground on GH?

After months — years? — of making it clear she thinks Kristina is wasting her life on General Hospital, Alexis Davis finally heard what her daughter’s big plans are for the future. And she’s still not thrilled. Kristina is going to save the poor! Even if she has no idea how exactly she’s going to do it. Was Alexis right to keep her mouth shut and let Sam do the dirty work?

General Hospital: Step Up, Alexis Davis

Oh, come on, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), 30% are confused, this isn’t like you! Where is the woman who always assumes she’s the smartest person in the room, whether it’s exposing Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) lies about her and Julian’s (Willaim deVry) son, or assuming that Gregory (Gregory Harrison) is an alcoholic? So why so coy with Kristina (Kate Mansi)? Go full Mama Bear on her! You need to save her from herself!

GH: Wrong Turn

Alexis knows there is nothing to win here, 31% are being more reasonable. Anything she says to Kristina – no matter how sensible — will be ignored, simply because it comes from her. So the best thing to do is to just keep her lip zipped and have Kristina learn her own lessons. And then Alexis can say, “I told you so.” Which is really the only reason to become a parent.

Alexis Davis: Shooting the Messenger

Why put her own relationship with Kristina on the line when Alexis can let Sam (Kelly Monaco) play the heavy and ask Kristina questions she has no answers for, 39% suggest? Alexis can come off as totes supportive of her baby girl, and the sisters can get out some of that resentment they must have been harboring ever since Kristina had to give up her eldest sister’s crown to Sam. That way, Alexis can lecture her daughters to get along and come off as a caring mom and not one who shirks her responsibilities.
