General Hospital

James Franco returning to GH just as Jason & Sam are set to wed!

Breaking news this morning out of TV Guide! It appears that James Franco is on his way back to General Hospital, yet again!  This time the Oscar nominated motion picture star will be returning to Port Charles as serial killer, “Franco” starting on the September 20th episode, which will coincide with just about the time Jason and Sam are set to finally wed!

Will “Franco” be so jealous of Sam (since he is beyond obsessed with Jason Morgan) that he will do finally do away with one of the lovebirds?

Well, according to TVG, this time Franco’s return is “longterm”! And that means soap fans can see the character on through the fall and possibly longer.   As for James himself, we all know he loves to multi-task and take on so many projects that he can’t even count on two hands.  God knows where he will find the time to do it all,  especially in lieu of the fact that in addition to appearing on GH, he will be debuting on Broadway this fall in Sweet Birth of Youth. But with the magic of soaps, he could tape a week’s worth of episodes and they could be strung out for months!

An ABC rep stated to TVG, “This is the baddie’s “most twisted plan yet” and that he’ll likely be pulling other characters into his web, including ditzy heroine Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and bitch queen Carly Jacks (Laura Wright) and her baby Josslyn.

This will be Franco’s fourth trip to Port Charles.  So what do you think of this storyline development? Are you clamoring for more Franco, or no? Let us know.

I’m okay with Franco coming back but hoping he won’t do anything until after the wedding, Jason and Sam deserve a little time to be happy. Really not sure about “longterm”. So many of the storylines have gone on way too long and become stale and I can’t wait for them to end but maybe with Mr. Wolf now writing it will be different.

I hope Mr. Wolf will write that jason witness sam’s death. Just like Sonny did with Lilly. that will make jason change his life around the lost of his only son and his wife..

I am not looking forward to Franco, I think GH has enough “baddies” with Anthony Z, I was hoping with new writers GH would get back to “love in the afternoon” rather than focusing on the violence that seems to be the show’s focus point for last 10 years

i’m hoping he tries to go after jason’s othr love, Liz, how can franco not know about Liz? so i’m hoping its spread out more, instead of the usual people, so tire of every single plot revolving around Carly. A real good villian would stuff her in a basement somewhere not to be heard for , for months. now thats a real story there, lol

would of been a better plot if franco would reveal that claudia was alive, i miss sarah brown, she made claudia a complex villian who wasn’t appreciated till she was gone. but it wont happen since ms brown is heading to days. which sucks. she belongs at gh .

Welcome back, James Franco, I love it when you hit Port Charles. You always shake things up a lot and make General Hospital very exciting for the short time you are on the show. Can’t wait to see you – and those evil eyes of yours – always letting us know that you are getting ready to do something really evil!!! See you soon, my friend!!!!!

Please don’t bring him back! He is such a terrible actor. Did you not see his Oscars hosting???????

The last time he did anything good was on Freaks and Geeks and that was only good because of Linda Cardelini.

I’m ok with it seeing that Garin Wolf is in and Guza is out. I expect much better SL and material this go round. I don’t find a problem with Franco. James is a great actor. Love everything he’s been in. Past GH? Not so much. I am expecting good stuff from GW and the whole cast!

James Franco can do no harm, however bad. Just because he plays a baddie does not deter me from watchimg him spin his webs so brillliantly. He is fascinating to watch. So bring him on. I’ve been waiting to find out how his story plays out in the end.. Go Franco!…

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.

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?
