3 Reasons Maxie Needs To Stop Calling ‘General Hospital’ Brook Lynn Quartermaine, BLQ
General Hospital spoilers and updates tease that there’s a lot to talk about in terms of Brook Lynn Quartermaine at the moment. First of all, she’s sporting a brand new look!
Today actress Briana Lane debuted as the fill-in for Amanda Setton who is on maternity leave. The recast is temporary and this means we get to enjoy two fabulous actresses give their take on the inimitable character known as Brook Lynn.
Lane’s impressive resume includes CSI, Law & Order: LA, Bones, Hawaii 5-0, and 911. She’s also been in Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta! and A Kind of Magic. Additionally, this isn’t her first soapy rodeo: she was Hope’s Double on Days of our Lives in 2006.
This brings us to the second point about the GH character and that is there needs to be an immediate cease and desist order taken out against anyone calling her BLQ.
Here are three reasons why referring to Brook Lynn Quartermaine as BLQ is just w-r-o-n-g.
#1 BLQ Sounds Like A Menu Item Not A Person
Today Brook Lynn’s new “agent” Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) repped her singing talent, and sold her hard, to the Deception crew. Every time he called her BLQ I wanted to order fries with that.
#2 Brook Lynn Was Named For A Reason, Everybody Knows That
Brook Lynn’s mom, Lois Cerullo (Rena Sofer; Lesli Kay), named her Brook Lynn for a sentimental reason. When Lois met Brook Lynn’s dad, Ned Quartermaine (Wally Kurth), she was plain old Lois from the block. She was a proud Bensonhurst, Brooklyn girl and although she eventually relocated to Port Charles she never left her New York roots behind.
She named her daughter after her hometown, Brooklyn, New York and to not call her that is a travesty against her loyal mom. Brook Lynn was not only named after the city, she was born in Brooklyn as her parents were estranged at the time.
#3 BLQ Might Sound Like A Catchy Name But It’s Not Original
BLQ has been done before. It’s the airport code for Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport which serves Bologna, Italy. The airport was named for Bologna native Guglielmo Marconi who was a Nobel Prize winner.

No one is going to mistake Brook Lynn for a Nobel laureate, but that doesn’t mean she needs to share her name with one. What’s wrong with Brook Lynn? Sometimes writers need to leave well enough alone, and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
Be sure to catch up on everything happening with GH right now. Come back here often for General Hospital spoilers, news, and updates.
Maxie might call Brook Lynn BLQ but she is not the only one. When Valentin introduced Brook Lynn to Maxie, Lucy, and Sasha he called her BLQ the Voice of Deception. I think that if Brook Lynn was upset with people calling her BLQ she would have corrected Valentin when he called her that. I do not think that Maxie needs to stop calling Brook Lynn BLQ if Brook Lynn does not mind being called the nickname.
Agree – don’t see a problem at all. In my opinion, it sounds much better than the given name of Wiley which sounds like the coyote in Bugs Bunny cartoons. But, to each his own.
I agree with the article. BLQ is a dumb moniker.
To me it sounds weirdly like a euphemism for “Black.”
Or like it’s trying to be AOC… or the ridiculous MTG they tried to get into the lexicon after they got a Qanon Queen into Congress.
Can we just call her “Brooke” (or Brooke Lynn)— thankfully I havent heard her called that since the article was written s one months ago.
