The Emmy winner may have just pulled off a first in her storied career as Alexis.

 We all had a big reaction to Monday’s General Hospital, in which Alexis went to wake up Neil after a night of passion, only to discover that he’d gotten cold feet. As in the kind of cold feet that would soon be sporting a toe tag. But perhaps no one’s response was more hilarious than that of Nancy Lee Grahn, who plays Alexis.

“In 24 years on General Hospital, I’ve shoved [someone] off a parapet — splat — accidentally had [someone] run into my knife and hurl himself off the 21st floor — ouch — ran over more than one [person] — I’m a very bad driver” on screen, she tweeted. “But I’ve never [bleeped someone] to death.

“Let’s see if I can add that to my resumé,” she continued, “after Tuesday’s episode. Stay tuned.”

For the sake of Grahn’s real-life romance, let’s hope that Neil is just a really heavy sleeper. She added that “my fiancé, after hearing about today’s General Hospital, has requested to sleep in the guest bedroom from now on.”

Elsewhere in the Twitterverse, former General Hospital star Kimberly McCullough, who played Robin, revealed that she had some catching up to do. “Wait, who is Neil?” she posted before asking, aghast, “Alexis killed her therapist?!?”

Clearly, McCullough has a fun General Hospital binge in her future. While we wait to see whether Neil is really, much less sincerely, dead, perhaps you’ll enjoy reading some other fans’ reactions to the twist, seeing who Grahn thinks might be a viable next love interest for Alexis and/or perusing the below photo gallery, a collection of images of soap stars like Michael Easton (Finn) and Roger Howarth (Franco) who have scored big in two roles on the same show.
