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.

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.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
