A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

Courtesy/ABC

ABC and General Hospital released a promo for the week of December 9th which features Franco (Roger Howarth) undergoing the mind-mapping reversal procedure that would restore his memory from that of Drew Cain’s back to Franco Baldwin.

But, as viewers saw on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Peter (Wes Ramsey) is trying to stop Dr. Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) from performing the procedure on Franco by ordering a hit on him.

In the promo, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hersbt) waits by her husband’s side hoping he will return to her and remember the love they share.  As well,  Cameron (William Lipton) prays with her that Franco will come back to them so they can be a family again in time for the holiday season.

Watch the teaser below.

Then, let us know if you are hoping Franco returns and that he is no longer Drew Cain in the comment section, or are you hoping for a different procedural outcome when he wakes up?

I am SO ready for Franco to be back. Franco is a unique character on GH and the show is missing his humour and emotionality in a land of macho, subdued men. Beyond that, the Franco/Elizabeth relationship and their dysfunctional but loving little family has been painstakingly built over the years. I can’t wait for the romantic pay off to Franco’s sacrifice and Elizabeth’s unshakeable faith. I also hope that Franco and Cam can become true family now that Franco has proven himself to Cam through a father’s love & sacrifice. Finally, Scotty has emerged as the curmudgeonly patriarch of… Read more »

I agree with everything Shan B. said. Franco is a very unique character who has been completely transformed with credit to the writers, Roger Howarth, and his costars. Franco has become a wonderful man and amazing stepfather. He was protective of his loved ones when he was young and he still is. His true character has been shown to be self-sacrificial. I would love for Cameron to ask Franco to adopt him. I also hope that Franco has no memories of his time as Drew. We need to see HIS reaction to the apparent loss of Drew. They chose to… Read more »

No, it was no ‘miracle’..
99% of fans knew Franco would revert to Franco from day one of the lacklustre story..
‘good’ writers would have written this story very intriguing and suspenseful, but it wasn’t written by good writers so be got a lot of Blah..

GH needs to clean house and bring in talented writers.
It’s sad to see GH fall from it’s once glory..
The writers of long past were great soap writers, an abundance of talent.
These writers should be writing for Hallmark Cards..

An interesting twist would be for Franco to come back as the old evil Franco and have Elizabeth wishing she had left well enough alone.

At the least for a couple of months

I suppose it will be a slight improvement to be done with the stupid Drodd brain mapped dragonshit, but unfortunately he’ll still be Frodd again.

Can we hope for “Option 4” where he becomes a complete vegetable? Which also means his soul will be trapped in his body and NOT here in Hell!

WHY, is Peter involved in nearly EVERY storyline? The propping of this flop is NOT working.

I am hoping that Franco comes back. I want to see Franco deal with Drew’s death. I love Franco and Elizabeth’s relationship and the whole Baldwin-Webber family. I am looking forward to Cam and Franco’s first conversation after he wakes up and want an adoption of Cam for the holidays

I love Franco, I’m so ready for him to be back to Elizabeth and their boys. They are just the best couple in daytime. Franco has turned into such a humorous and loveable character. I have missed him on my screen for the last four months.

I can’t wait for Franco to be back! What started out as a promising story went sideways really fast and turned disgusting. #Friz are absolute magic and I have missed Franco so much!! Hurry on back Franco!!

Franco needs to return to his family and to us viewers. I miss his humor and the sweet family him and Elizabeth have made. One brain damaged emotionless male lead is enough for one show, I can’t wait for Franco to come back.

GH ha finally hit gold with the Franco & Elizabeth pairing. It comes around rarely that you connect a couple with longevity. This couple with it’s diverse histories and the opportunity for quirky and wonderful stories connected to so many other characters on the canvas makes them a joy to watch. It’s been a long time since I’ve rushed home to see a show or stayed up late to watch online because I missed it. This is the pair that’s making me do those things and I don’t want it to end and am looking forward to them for a… Read more »

The only reason I cared at all about this story was the 2 characters that it SHOULD’VE been about..Fans have invested nearly 4 years into seeing Franco and Elizabeth establish a family and bond worthy of their legacy status..To make this storyline nearly completely about a character that a lot of fans felt no connection to or was largely unliked to begin with, completely excusing her predatory behavior on grief, was gross. I’m happy my faves got to play something completely different from their norm, but I’m also ecstatic that this mess of a story is coming to an end.… Read more »

So ready to have Franco back. His quirky personality, combined with his proven readiness to do whatever is needed, include sacrifice himself body and soul, to protect the ones he loves has been sorely missed.

I haven’t watched in months. I decided to watch an episode this weekend. Hard to find an episode that doesn’t prop-up The Permed Parking Lot Poet, or mention Moron Morgan. NuNik is awful. Who is in charge of casting? Yikes.

DMRR, I do not like the new Nickolas either. He’s kind of smarmy, no?

A totally ridiculous story. How many times are the writers going to create new characters for Roger Howarth? Todd…Franco….Drew and now back to Franco again? I can’t keep up. This whole “Drew’s memories” storyline should have gone to the real Drew, Billy Miller a long time ago. Why the writers didn’t do this I will never know….

I think it’s a shame they’re bringing Franco back. I’d take Roger Howarth’s Drew over tired Franco any day. This arc gave a great actor something interesting to work with. Also I didn’t think they could find a convincing Nikolas, but I love how he’s a little smarmy. The sudden shift to bad guy just before TC left made no sense, but this version of Nik does. Since they bothered to bring him back, the dark side of the prince will be more fun to explore than same old Nik pining over annoying, one-dimensional Elizabeth.

Cameron Mathison Talks Strangest Shirtless Scenes, Favorite Susan Lucci Moment & More On ‘7 Questions With Steve & Brad’

On the latest installment of Steve Burton (Jason) and Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) You Tube series, 7 Questions with Steve and Brad, the General Hospital stars welcome the newest addition to their Port Charles family, Cameron Mathison.

Mathison is set to debut this summer back on ABC daytime in a role still under wraps, after previously playing All My Children’s Ryan Lavery and wrapping up his co-hosting gig on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family.

In the rapid fire sequence of questions from Burton and Anderson, Cameron fielded questions such as what was his strangest take-off-your-shirt moment in soaps, his favorite Susan Lucci moment (where in story, Ryan for a short time was romantically linked to Erica Kane), plus Mathison fessed up on his favorite hosting gig, if he bakes at home, and more.

Watch the enlightening and fun conversation here.

Then let us know, are you looking forward to Cameron’s debut on GH? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
