Fantastic news today via Soap Opera Digest!  Fan favorite, Tyler Christopher the dashing dark prince of the Cassadine clan, has signed a new contract with General Hospital to stay put as Nikolas!

Tyler expressed his enthusiasm for working with head honcho Frank Valentini and the entire GH team when he related to SOD: “It took us a few months to work out the details, but I signed last week. I’m really happy about it. I love the show and I’m having a great time.”

So that means Nikolas will be sticking around in Port Charles! Who then should Nikolas be paired up with romantically? Elizabeth, or someone new?  Share your thoughts!

    Actually, I think that Nicolas and Sabrina might make an interesting couple. I’m not really sold on her relationship with Patrick. Another possibility would be Britt. I know there are people who love his relationship with Elizabeth, but there’s a sense of entitlement with Nicolas and it comes out in a big way with Elizabeth. I’m also a little tired of women dating multiple men in one family.

    great news! love him and as more leave…Steve Burton, Brandon Barash, Scott Reeves…Bradford Anderson going off contract…it’s nice to have a familiar great character come back on board!

    I still kinda like the Liz/AJ pairing so I’m curious to see where that’ll go. Unless…they can find someone else great for AJ because I really want to see him treated fairly this time ’round.

    Back to the question? Yay! for Tyler!

    I would like Nikolas to be a handsome Casanova :).
    He doesn’t need to be hooked to anyone, he should play the field and have great adventures with all types of women ..
    GH needs one man, just one, who doesn’t tie up his life with one woman, and go through all the trauma of a love that will surely have tons of problems and end..(they all do)
    I would like Nikolas to not get attached..

    YAY!!! I cried when he appeared as a surprise a few weeks back – I’m so glad he’s back, he’s just one of the real ones.

    Great news – thank you!

    Could NOT be more thrilled over this development! Tyler is a beautiful actor and Nikolas is a legacy character that can work in so many facets on the show. I am LOVING the Nik/Liz/AJ triangle and love how Ron Carlivati has written for and how Tyler and Becky have played this round of the Nikolas and Elizabeth relationship. If it had been done like this the first time around, it probably wouldn’t have offended so many fans. Also love how Nik has been interacting with his family like Laura, Alexis, and Lulu. Bravo GH, great job!

      I couldn’t agree more. When they first hinted at a Liz/Nik pairing (when Lucky was still around) I could see the chemistry. They just went about it the wrong way. They ruined what could have been an awesome pairing. I hope they, the writers, will do it right this time. I like AJ & Liz, but I have a feeling they will do a Carly & AJ thing since Carly & Franco will not make sense at the moment. Now, if only they will break Sabrina & Patrick up. That pairing just feels icky.

    Good news but now gh needs to show more of Laura, Scotty, Duke, Anna, Lucy, Kevin and Leslie! Then it will be great again! Would like to see Nik paired with Ava for awile…i feel they could have great chemistry…then maybe later he could hook up with Liz but i like Liz with A.J. at the moment!

    • BTripp

      June 18, 2013 at 5:33 pm

      Never thought about him with Ava! Maybe an Ava/Nik/Liz/AJ foursome kinda thing.

      You are spot on with that comment. Give us the characters we love.

        I was thinking Tracy- she needs her great love and he is a handsome prince— and thought they worked well together during the whole relish thing. Know it is out there, but really like to see Tracy get her dream.

    • Ces

      June 19, 2013 at 7:21 am

      I agree!! GH brings Genie Francis back, the most beloved character on this show to do what exactly???

      • jimh

        June 19, 2013 at 12:52 pm

        I know Laura is supposed to be on her honeymoon with Scotty but why cant they show them having romantic moments like Scotty wine and dine her, take her dancing or just walking along a moonlite beach? Im very much for romance…something lacking in all soaps including the two online reboots.

      • ces

        June 19, 2013 at 5:12 pm

        I agree Jim, if they were trying to sell Scotty & Laura again, at least SHOW why she fell in love with him again. Then again, I don’t believe she did fall in love, just felt convenience with him, but surely they didn’t bring her back for this.

        There definitely has been a serious lack of romance on Days & GH both, agreed.

    Awesome news!!!!! Nicholas and Elizabeth….HOT!!!!

    June 18, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    That’s great about Tyler staying on as Nicholas. He is very good at his job. Thank you to all the cast and crew and everyone else who are striving to keep General Hospital alive. I have been watching it since I was about 15.That’s about 40 years. It has always been a great show. Are they ever going to bring Robin back?

    • AJ

      June 19, 2013 at 5:18 am

      I think that decision is Kimberly McCollough’s. I think TPTB have said if she wants to come back, she can.

  16. janet belrose

    June 18, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Anyone BUT Liz please!! There’s something really sleezy about taking up with the love of your brother’s life- Liz seems to know this as she pursues her relationship with AJ. There are a few single ladies such as Maxie, Samantha, & Christina- or maybe bring someone new & exciting to the show. But, leave the trainwreck that was Nik & Liz just where it is- a mistake in the past!!!

    • donna

      June 18, 2013 at 8:59 pm

      christina would be related.maybe sam would work

    • Lynn A

      June 19, 2013 at 9:49 am

      Sam & Christina are both his cousins! So that’s a big NO!

      • rebecca

        June 21, 2013 at 8:49 am

        If Patrick and Sabrina don’t work out she might be a good match for Nicolas. She’s got that pure-of-heart innocent thing that Emily had.

    Nicholas and SAM — oh yeah !! Not Elizabeth – she’s his brother’s ex — they already went down that road — and they shouldn’t have !!! Leave it in the past !!! thanks!

    Thrilled to hear that Tyler (Nikolas) is staying in Port Charles. He has always been a favorite of mine. I like him with Elizabeth, and I do think they will probably have the Elizabeth/Nikolas/AJ triangle play out a bit, but whether or not they ultimately pair him with her, we shall see. I think he would work well romantically with most any one. I just hope he does not end up with Brit (aka Britch), although that could be an interesting move, as he certainly will not take her nonsense.

  24. Jillanne

    June 18, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    Yes!! Now bring back Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans as Stepan Cassadine and Katherine Bell!!!!

  25. heidi

    June 18, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    I am just so happy he signed!!! If he can’t be with Elizabeth… how about a fling with Carly? I always thought that might be interesting. Glad he is sticking around!

    • donna

      June 18, 2013 at 9:06 pm

      that would be interesting. i was thinking since michelle stafford as left y&r they could hire her for a love interest for nickolas

  26. Scott (ATWT Fan)

    Was wishing his return would be temporary, but we cannot all get what we want now, can we?

  27. Michele Z

    June 18, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    So happy he is back. He is my favorite hunk.Love his acting also. I thought about the Carly thing, too.

  28. JEFF

    June 18, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Great news, he was missed. I think him and Laura Wright have good chemistry; why not try him and Carly? BTW all, Sam and Nicholas are related!

  29. Terri

    June 18, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    l am really enjoying Nicholas and Liz this time around!

  30. Mary SF

    June 18, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    I like Elizabeth with AJ, so personally I would like to see him with Tracy. She needs her great love and I think a handsome prince fits the bill. I know she is older, but I think there was some chemistry there– or am I way out on a limb here? Does anyone else think Nicholas and Tracy would be good match?

    • jimh

      June 19, 2013 at 12:57 pm

      I think it could work with him and Tracy…i liked their scenes together…but id like to see him first with either Ava or Connie!

  31. mary

    June 18, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    I love him and I wish the great couple of gh would come back. emily!!!!!!!!!!! I still wish emily and nik would somehow get together and somehow bring her back. I just loved them…..

  32. Sally

    June 18, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    I like Liz and AJ together – so maybe Carly – she is older but she needs a man right now!

  33. matthew

    June 18, 2013 at 8:58 pm

    I think Nikolas should be paired with a new character that has a familiar face. I thought he had a lot of chemistry with Sarah Brown when they shared a short storyline several years ago. Sarah is such a chameleon she could easily come back as a third character and possibly even play Claudia’s long lost sister. With so many high profile vacancies left at GH Sarah Brown is exactly what the show needs to fill the gaping whole it has on the powerhouse front and the chemistry between Sarah and Tyler is undeniable.

  34. AJ Marchi

    June 18, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    Hello….. Nikolas cannot be with Sam. They are cousins or something like that. Alexis is Sam’s Mother & is she is Nikolas’s cousin.. Creepy! Can’t stand Elizabeth, never have been able to stomach her. Sorry 🙁 I loved him with Emily & with Courtney. Carly, no way…. Nikolas is classy, even though she tries, Carly is not. Maxie is too young for him I think. Sabrina maybe. A real twist would be Brit since she is Faison’s daughter. Wow wouldn’t Helena have a royal cow with that???? Hmmmm, Sabrina, someone new or Brit would be my vote. This could be interesting. Have Brit straighten her crap out & start a relationship with someone besides Patrick. I think underneath her Mother’s Witchy influence, she might actually be decent. We’ll have to wait & see though.

    June 18, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    They’ve never revealed the father of Britt’s baby. What if she and Nicolas had a one night stand and she has no idea who he is. I don’t think they’ve had scenes together yet. That would be a hoot.

  36. Patrick

    June 18, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    before I read everyone’ post – I really like the triangle of Nicholas – Liz – AJ.

    quite frankly… i like the big loveable Lug AJ…. I think he makes a great father, as well.

    so… this will certainly heat things up for this threesome…. and honestly…

    GH needs some passion, romance… and intrigue again.

    C’mon GH… show us Anna and Duke… and…. Mac and Felicia… last i saw.. Mac was telling Felicia they didn’t need to get married to be married…. C’mon… this is love and romance.

  37. Sue

    June 19, 2013 at 6:14 am

    Welcome back Tyler, but does that mean that Bunheads has been cancelled? 🙁 Loved you on that show too! I like Nik & Liz, but think AJ deserves a break. Now that Steve is gone, how about Olivia & Nik? She’d be a great mom to his son. Connie would be good too, like a second chance at motherhood, but Sonny needs a strong women in his life to ground him. Ava & Luke would be great too! Although I do like Luke w/ Tracy. Right now I see the direction of the writers is to get a younger audience to watch. Lots of teenage romance going on. 🙂

  38. susan

    June 19, 2013 at 6:16 am

    stay away from Elizabeth 🙁

  39. Cat

    June 19, 2013 at 7:33 am

    My first wish if for Elizabeth. No, way with Britt unless she REALLY cleaned her act up! I’m new to the show so I can’t say about any of his past romances. I know one thing for sure she needs to be special. It could be that girl next door scenario or somebody he just met that seems to give him grief.

  40. nancy dillingham

    When is Laura (Genie Francis) going to get a chance to ask her two children how they are both progressing????? Talk about a fractured show! Doesn’t matter who is supposedly on “contract” (as I understand Genie Francis is also), they have very precious screen time. It’s the tweens and teens that are hogging the air. Why???? They are NOT the ones that are watching the show. They are “otherwise engaged.” Why are TPTB so out of touch? Don’t they know their audience is the people who have watched for many years–and are looking–in vain–for the characters they love? Too simple for TPTB to understand that, I guess.

  41. nancy dillingham

    June 19, 2013 at 9:57 am

    The show is no longer GH. It’s filled with characters from other shows whose just come on the show with no background or no connection–or a tenuous one at best– to the GH we have watched so many years. Nothing or no one of substance to identify with or feel empathy for or root for. Everyone of the “new” (from other shows) characters are distasteful, unlikable, or plain mean. That’s not what I tune in to see. We were all duped during the 50th anniversary happenings/bringbacks into believing that our favorite characters were going to be given something to do and be treated with dignity at least. Look what they have done to Laura’s character (dressed Genie Francis in appallingly unflattering clothes and made her empy-headed and dull–the cardinal sin. Pity poor Genie! Why is she always treated so shabbily after helping to save the show and giving so many years in service to the show. Shame! Shame!

    please tell me this is true… and most off Tiffany and SEAN coming back would make it even BETTER… Rumorville: According to a tweet from @max_tuneage, John Reilly (Sean Donely) is taping two episodes for GH in mid-July. Apparently, this tidbit comes via Sharon Wyatt (Tiffany Hill). If you recall from our earlier Rumorville items, Sean and Tiffany’s daughter is due to arrive in Port Charles this summer.

    This is great news. As a longtime TC fan, it’s gratifying to see him so valued by TPTB. As far as couplings go, I have no real preference. Having said that, though, I wouldn’t mind seeing what kind of chemistry Nikolas and Ava (Maura West) might have.

  45. Pumpkinoodles

    June 20, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Love it! I was sad to see him go in the middle of a great story. This is out chance to see the Liz/Nick story play out the right way.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Aaawww.  So many GH fans have been touched by the gesture, and how nice it is that it makes the whole journey and end of Nathan’s West story heartbreaking and bittersweet.
