No kidding. Why didn’t they include ME, KA and RH. I mean come on…they all were on GH were one full year before all the PP/ABC/Disney got all complicated. Can’t believe that they weren’t apart of the 50th anniversary photo shoot even though they were asked to leave back in February. Go figure!!

Probably because Roger Howarth is in Connecticut shooting One Life To Live.

The 3 are still with GH with contracts..
It was nasty not to include Todd, John and Starr ..

BOOOO BOOOOO/throw tomato !

Because they are not part of GH’s 50th history – they have only been on GH for a short period of time and have no reason to be included. Stop acting like a two year old because you can’t have your own way. How pathetic.

They are a part of OLTL and that is how it will remain – get over it

Can you believe these idiots expecting Todd, Starr and McBain to be in the pivotal cast photo? These 3 actor’s and character’s had nothing to do with the ratings bonanza of General Hospital over the years. I can’t believe the nerve of some people.

Those character’s are the face of OneLife. Pivotal player’s on that show! They DONOT belong in the cast photo of GH.

Lynn

OMG! Really??? John/Todd/Starr have been on OLTL over 10yrs those are OL characters and NOT Gh characters errrrr they have been on verily a year and not even that if you include all the months john did even appear on GH no they are not part of GH esp the 50th!!!!!!

Ces

I agree — kept looking for them! They were definitely pivota in storyline to get them to 50!

I they didn’t include Todd,John,or Starr that is strange to me. They have been on
for a while and should have been in this cast picture.

That’s wonderful. They DONOT belong in the 50th anniversary of GH. They had nothing to do with the ratings bonanza of GH over the 50 years!!!!!

Hurray! I don’t have to see their face in the cast photo.

AJ

They probably were not around. Nothing to do with time there – the actor who plays Rafe is in the picture. You people need help – there’s no conspiracy!

Christy
Christy

Ha! that is the first thing I looked for as well!

well since the stars are still GH actors, they should have been there… doesn’t matter what name they’ll go by when they return, they are still part of GH now!

what is up with that, ABC?

Troy Turner
Troy Turner

the photo was taken about 2-3 weeks ago-well after the last day of filming for the OLTLer’s for now. Quit looking for things that aren’t there

Sophia

Forget Todd, Starr, and John. How about Dante, Lulu, Jax, Brenda … all important characters who have been on the show for a long timE!

Judy

love it! Is it available for purchase?

Maybe they could make lamented copies of the photo to sell to fans as part of a fundraiser effort for amfar?

By the way Kim M.(ROBIN! ROBIN! ROBIN!) is in the photo!!! Doubt that was taken b4 she left, and i doubt ABC deliberately stuck in a cardboard figure of her. Would she do it if she had any sort of problem with the current regime? And i also doubt shes only back for just a photo shoot. Even if she isnt seen as much i feel she is still very much part of the show, and will return…full time or recuring. This is a soap, and not a show where everything is done in an hour. Soap viewing requires people with patients! Besides i see Sabrina more with someone like Milo or maybe Micheal now that the character of Starr will no longer be shining in PC. Meanwhile, i wonder if Rafe will turn out being related to Sabrina…Sabrinas cousin Juan Santiago did have an affair with Rafes mom Alison years ago, so there is always the possibility Juan could later turn out to be his daddy and not Caleb. Then Sabrina could be Rafes guardian.

Where is Jax, Brenda, Lulu, Dante, and Kevin?

Marnie

I wonder the same thing. This is just sooo wrong. Julie was there almost eight years and is excluded. Not good at all!!!!!!!!!Jax was there for years as well. All of these who are mentioned should have been included.

Why are some dressed up and some not? Y&R had a beautiful 40th cast photo.

aria

this is the cast photo? how dissappointing, i thought they would all be dressed up for the photo? this looks like a picture of everyone put together after work. not a photo shoot of the stars together celebrating the 50th anniversary of a show.

Lin
Lin

agreed, and everyone currently on cast should be in it. Julie Berman is gone so I understand why she’d not in there. I really think they should have one in Nurses Ball garb.

1loveabcsoap
1loveabcsoap

Julie (Lulu) should have returned for the photo, just as Robin did. Jax, Brenda, Lucky, Dante, Keven and Steve burton should be in the cast photo as well.

THIS IS WRONG.

These people should understand that WE are invested in these people and their character’s. If nothing else, we are looking forward to that cast picture wth ALL our favorites. I don’t care if they HAVE TO PHOTO SHOP ALL OF THEM IN.

Patrick

I agree! I mean no art director! It looks like some were working in the yard and others wear a tuxedo! It’s ridiculous!

Jules
Jules

Lynn Herring dressed up on the left side actually makes her look OUT of place!

Ellen

I agree….think it would have been a more glamorous shot befitting the 50th anniversary!! It looks like they took it between taping or before they left for the day…..kind of disappointing!!

Ellen
Ellen

you can tell it was taken during taping for the nurse’s ball…..some and gowns and tux’s….some not!! not a very classy pic for the 50th!!:(

Brenda
Brenda

I agree. The Y&R 40th cast photo looks like they are going to dinner at the White House with most in suits and gowns. Don’t they have a wardrobe dept. that could have found something more appropriate for the 50th anniversary photo.

Anna

Is that Kimberly McCoullough I see standing by IB?

It looks like her, but I find the photo to be poor quality. Don’t know why it’s so hard to see.

Candice

there’s many people who I feel should be in this but since they are just temporarily back I’ll excuse their absence (Jax, Brenda,Robert, Kevin the OLTL characters) but Where’s Dante, Lulu, Kristina??? They are all regular characters on the show 🙁

Lin
Lin

“Lulu,” Julie Berman is gone. She quit and will not be back on. But don’t understand about Dante and Kristina. 🙁

Joanne
Joanne

I wish they had been dressed up too like the Y&R pic. As for the absences, Julie and the OLTL folks had already taped their last scenes. I saw Dominic at an event the weekend after the photo was taken and he said he forgot about it since he wasn’t taping that day.

MK

I was expecting a Bigger and classier photo that Y and R. I am more disappointed that Rachel was not included, it shows that Luke is still the front and center of the show. Audrey should have been honored, she was there for 45 yrs.

Chantal

I have a feeling Lindsay Morgan is out…

No DZ or Kelly Monaco. JMB left but so did BB . I think all of them should of been in the picture

Marnie

BB left but he is in the pic. hmmmm

Robert

It’s not fair that Kristen, Roger and Michael got excluded because of the stupid disput between ABC (All aBout Commission) got greedy and cancelled two soaps they KNOW they should NEVER have cancelled and now the common actor paid the price! It’s a small honor but sad at the same time that corporate greed made what is suppose to be a special occassion suck!!

Oh, ABC take a note from the #1 Daytime Soap network CBS when it comes to putting an anniversary together! The week leading up to Y&R 40th was absolutely wonderful. ABC and GH you are hitting it with the stories, but MISSING it with the history and characters!! Take a note from you competitors!!!!!!!! Oh also ABC, you don’t deserve to profit from Prospect Park!!!!!!!!

Dan

My god, people will complain about anything. Wonderful photo. They probably took it while as many cast members as possible were on set taping the Nurses Ball. Unfortunately, not everyone is going to be there at the same time. That’s why a few people are missing, and some are dressed up and some aren’t.

jim
jim

I agree Dan…no one seems pleased about anything GH does, and it makes me wonder why so many complainers even watch. Sometimes i think most of them would be happier if the show was cancelled.
My only complaints are usually with the conplainers, and if there is something i dont like i usually make harmless suggestions and dont say hardly anything negative because there is much more positive things happening on GH to keep me happy and satisfied, so on with the show!!!

Tristan
Tristan

Thank you!!! Let’s just be thankful that GH IS celebrating its 50th. As for those not in the picture? It is just a picture!!!!! Wouldn’t it be worse if all those mentioned weren’t even being invited back (like Rachel Ames)? The OLTL Three were probably legally enjoined from being so photographed, since at the time of the picture their status had not yet been legally determined. As for Kelly Thibaud? Probably taken while she was out with her broken leg. Everyone seems to be looking for political motivations to various appearances (or not) in the picture. They clearly took the picture with whomever was on the set that day.

Really…sometimes a picture is just a picture, and not a conspiracy.

I also do not get the CONSTANT complaining about GH. It is the best it has been in years, AND, it is still on the air. Can’t we be grateful for that, and for ALL THE LOVE Frank and Ron are putting into the 50th???? The previous regime would have ignored the 50th, and would have kept on pumping out shows about Sonny, Jason, and the Mob, and ONLY Sonny, Jason, and the Mob. We have Frank and Ron to THANK for the returns of Frisco, Laura, Scotty, Lucy, Kevin, Heather, Nicholas, Brenda, Jax, Noah Drake, Bobbi, Audrey, Rick, Alan, A.J., Faison, Robert, Duke, Helena and a few surprises not yet revealed (Robin? Lucky? Blackie? Leslie? Jeff?). We have much to celebrate and we owe Frank and Ron our gratitude for what they ARE giving us. One year ago this was even TOO MUCH to hope for.

As for myself, I CANNOT imagine a more lovely, faithful tribute to GH’s 50th. THANK YOU FRANK AND RON!!!!!!!!!

totally right dan, jim and tristan,enough with the complaining GH is great, i ‘m loving it everyday, and i’m so grateful its on and Celebrating this milestone. thank the universe for the team of FV and RC if not for them, GH would not be this good.

I agree that Robert Scorpio was the best character he is so good now he is in a dumb coma, Maybe they will surprise us since Robin is in the photo.

The photo’s are always taken on a work day and everyone is invited to take part in the photo but if an actor doesn’t want to show up on his/her own time them that’s that. the actors who are dressed in street close are the ones that came on there own time so hats off to them for showing up. as for the OLTL people I’m sure it had to do with the lawsuit pending. It would had been nice if everyone was all dressed up but most likely they didn’t put that in the memo

I agree, there is missing characters, however, we have to realize that this is ABC they aren’t serious about Soaps.. I suppose it was asking too much to get Jason, Jacks, & Lucky to travel.

jim
jim

Whats abc got to do with or who isnt there…if they werent serious about GH they wouldnt hired FV or RC to save it after realizing how foolish they were to allow Brian Frons to convince them to cancel the other two. And i doubt we’d be seeing the nurses ball if they werent serious. Lucky is doing Nashville and Jax is in Hawaii with his family…these two might not have the time to fly in on what looks like a photo done in a moments notice. And it might have been too much work, lol, for Jason(steve burton) to do the photo shoot. Now im just pointing out all this in a friendly way as much as possible so i hope you dont take my reply the wrong way like some others might.

Dzz Dee – Steve Burton no longer qorks for GH. In fact, he works for Y&R now. GH isn’t going to promote his new soap. Ingo is doing DWTS and recently said in an interview that he can’t juggle both DWTS & GH the way Kelly did. It is too hard, he said. As for Jonathan, he said he couldn’t fit GH into his Nashville schedule. The actor himself said it. Please stop blaming the show until you have your facts straight. Ron and Frank are trying to give fans a 50th anniversary to remember. Let’s try to enjoybit without being critical of things out of GH’s control.

DzzDee
DzzDee

Exactly, You said , What I meant about those long ago key characters..another life & they moved on. ABC is still lacking in common sense! They could of easily back slide there decision to keep OLTL on ABC. As I am a fan of GH & OLTL.. But……… ABC has one soap.. I don’t think they are that serious!

jim
jim

People, get over it. ive been to parties and reunions where everyone didnt show up! There are dozens of reasons why? One reunion i attended we did a group photo: some dressed like they were from Dynasty and others dressed like they were from The Waltons. It was no big fuss…everyone was just grateful who were able to attend and it didnt stop the party because of some who couldnt commit: other committments, on vaction, illness or just didnt feel like it. Geez, sure a lot of unhappy people when there neednt be.

Tam
Tam

It’s just a photo, no big deal. Lots of the ‘regulars’ are missing. The fact that GH is still on the air is the important part. I’m just glad none of the oltl crowd is in the photo. My critique is the poor photo backdrop. Sean and Sonya appear to be beheaded bodies.

There’s a lot missing from this photograph and that’s the main reason I don’t watch this one-sided show anymore.

Why dont they bring Tristan Rogers back for the 50th and his daughter Robin get him out of the comma they can figue it out. All his fans want him back more then once every 4-5years it is ridiclous. Even if he is on another soap he could do it for the anniversary show.

Why wasn’t Tristan Rogers in this photo?. He was and is still an important character at GH.!!. Not the same without him, I can’t believe they put him in a coma and left it like that!!!! , Tristan Rogers made GH and I don’;t know why he isn’t: back on the set celebrating their 50th!!! He alway’s gets shafted, so not right!!! You need to bring him back or you will loose ratings again !!!!!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
