On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the background and the truth came to light of just who is this mysterious guy, “Derek Wells”, who showed up in Port Charles this week and took over Connie Falconeri’s Crimson!
It all happened when soap favorite and heartthrob, William deVry in key scenes with two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maura West (Ava) was revealed to be none other than Julian Jerome, brother of Ava, and son of Victor Jerome, the crime boss who spread terror though Port Charles in the 80′s and early 90′s!
As many know and was reiterated in the episode, the Jerome clan caused terrible trouble and heartache for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan)! Anna even lost her and Duke’s child at their hands!
Fans also learn the gambling connection with the Jerome family and Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig), and that Ava and Julian have a master plan to bring down Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and take back the territory that once belonged to the powerful Jerome family!
Elsewhere, Alexis ((Nancy Lee Grahn) gets hypnotized by Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) to try to recall who Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) father is, so she can help save little Danny! And as she recalls the night she met this handsome stranger, we come to learn that the man she is making out with in a car was named “Julian”!
Quite the story entrance for Mr. deVry! He is Julian Jerome with a whole agenda to take down the Corinthos Clan and he has no idea he has a daughter, who just happens by the Crimson office at the end of Friday’s episode and comes face-to-face with dad!
So what do you think of all the groundwork that has been laid to make William deVry’s emergence on General Hospital have plenty of impact? Do you like the idea “Derek Wells” is really Julian Jerome? Do you see the long term story potential for Anna, Duke, Sonny, Ava, The Q’s, Alexis, Sam, and more with deVry’s Julian on the canvas? And one more thing, Julian has another child out there! Do you remember that Lucas Jones (Bobbie’s adopted son with Tony) is really the bio-child of Julian too? Could that come into play here at some point in the future? Let us know your thoughts on the reveal!
