General Hospital has so many intriguing stories going on right now that you just never know who just might be behind door number two!  In a promo for this week’s Thanksgiving episode airing today, the series teases there will be a game-changing guest! But, who could it be?

Featured in the promo are: Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel), Carly (Laura Wright), Michael (Chad Duell), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan), Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), Julian (William deVry), Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Patrick (Jason Thompson), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and “Jake”  (Billy Miller), to name just a few.

Tracy (Jane Elliot) utters the infamous “Thanksgiving at the Q’s” line brought into prominence by her late father Edward, “First we sing, and then we eat!”

Watch the promo after the jump! Then let us know who you think the game-changing guest will turn out to be? Faison, Jason, Helena, Ric, someone else?

When Alexis says “There is someone who would like to see all of you,” it makes me think it is none of the above.

Maybe it is Luke? I do not read spoiler sites so I have no clue, but I just do not believe it is anyone mentioned above.

I don’t have a clue, either.. who will it be?
RC and team are brilliant with twists and turns and surprises,
so it could be Santa Claus!
This sweeps will go down in soap history as the best of the best..

Also– a BRAVO for Carly (Laura Wright), Michael (Chad Duell) !!!!
they brought is home, awesome!!

ohhhh ..
Helena knows ”Jakle” is ”Jason”…
when Jake opened the door Helena knew and the Cassadines want Jason back, they spent 2 years and millions of dollars on Jason for whatever their reason for bring him back from dead, and they want him back..
Now that Helena knows who and where Jason is, it is going to get good, very good..
I can hardly wait for that story.. Billy Miller will soon have a big story with the Cassadines !!

The story will highlight the very best of the actors of GH..

You are right, PV Jr! It is indeed the real Luke.
Today’s show was very good. I miss Edward but so glad to finally see Michael back home where he belongs.
I refuse to see Sonny and Carly as victims–they are reaping what they sowed. And it’s about time.

sigh–now I hear that Helena may have switched Lukes. Shoot I hope not.

Did you hear that Harry? Sorry…I HAVE to give myself credit…LOL!

Actually, what I’m thinking and fearing is that she actually killed the real Luke and Fluke will go on for quite a bit longer undetected…until TG decides to make his exit.

There doesn’t seem to be anything else it could be…Helena just strolls out of Luke’s “room” knowing that Alexis now knows he’s in there. She just had no reaction…which could only mean she either did a swap and they’re both still alive…or the real Luke is on ice somewhere…

I have to finish my thought. When I said I had to give myself credit I meant I was thinking as soon as Helena walked out of Luke’s padded room and showed no worry of being detected, or of Alexis finding him, I assumed the real Luke was no longer in there…

Helene did switch Lukes…rumor is that this storyline ends at the 2015 Nurses Ball with both Fluke and Luke appearing on stage at the same time, and no one in the crowded room knows which is the real Luke and which is the Fluke…lights briefly go out…both Lukes have disappeared from the stage…both Lukes battle it out over a large waterfall just as the Keystone cops of Anna, Dante, and Nathan show up…one of the Lukes falls and disappears over the waterfall and ‘real’ Luke is reunited with Tracy and his family but is he really Luke or Fluke…ok, its… Read more »

Thats the whole point of the story, she wasn’t suppose to mention the guest name. they want leave us in suspense, and no it might not be any of the people mentioned , but that’s the whole point of this storyline, to keep us guessing!

I sincerely doubt that was really Luke Alexis rescued– Helena wasn’t upset to see Alexis there— no one tired to stopped them from leaving—after keeping the guy under wraps for months they suddenly just let him out the door? I don’t think so—my guess the real Luke was taken away before they even got there- and this is Fluke pt 2–except this time he is going to play it smarter– act more like the real Luke now everyone knows there is a fake Luke out there.l

jimh(leave it to beaver)

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I also said it was Fluke…i bet in the story climax both Fluke and Luke will appear together at some crowded function(hopefully not 2015 Nurses Ball…lol) and no one will know which is the real and which is the fake or one will disapear over a waterfall during a duel leaving us wondering if the real Luke survived!!!

Yes that is a possibility- I’m still waiting to find out on Y&R that Lauren shot the real Phyllis and Sheila has been living Phyllis’s life all these years– this was back when Sheila had plastic surgery to look like Phyllis. But that kind of story is more GH’s style, so I could definitely see them doing exactly what you said– of course now with Chris Pratt is writing Y&R, maybe Phyllis is really Sheila — who is who, it is so confusing– but as long as we know who we are that what counts right–lol

Gina T.(Phylis or Sheila…would be great if she was the latter) and Adams story got me watching Y&R more often than usual…i was hoping Sage had Adam look like Gabrial in a plot to get Constance’s money…i thought Gab died before Sage could marry him and is using Adam to continue her plot…she knows who he ‘really’ is and blackmails him to play the part of Gabrial as she continues her sinister plot to get Constance’s money…guess i watch too many Lifetime movies…lol…my apologies for going off the subject…meanwhile i thought it dumb that Anna thought it was better keeping… Read more »

Oh Jim, always making me smile! As it stands right now Anna’s decision to drop Faison in that hole with Nik’s adolescent son just feet away is wacky!! If it was Sonny dropped down that hole I could argue he’s claustrophobic & that would be a fun place to leave HIM. So far I’m missing the logic in this reveal.

So Mary SF, does that imply that Sheila Carter has now moved on to Port Charles in the form of Phyllina Cray, I mean, Clay? Would explain an awful lot!!!!! Of course, I only jest, but while Sheila’s special sort of insanity was clever and bearable on B&B, I have to say that I am one who is squarely NOT in the corner of enjoying that nefarious nutcase, Nina….my happiest viewing days are when she is out of sight and mind! I so want her (and MS….) to leave the GH canvas and NEVER return!!!!!!

I think it could’ve been Luke or Fluke, Helena or Faison. I really thought Robin would pop up on today’s show. She must be near cause Helena is here. I think Bill Eckert is Fluke. They need to hurry & wrap up the Fluke stuff so we can get Ric out of witness protection. I can’t wait to see Julian’s face when he finds out Ric is alive & probably madder than a wet hen at Julian. What a good last few days of shows for GH. I’m so, so sorry, but others can bash GH all they want. I’m… Read more »

Agreed, 100% about GH having the best sweeps month. DAYS, Y&R and B&B do not even compare in terms of story to GH right now. Y&R, GH’s biggest competition in terms of ratings, has been getting progressively better, but GH has been on FIRE. All the drama, intensity, and return of some great villains/actors has made GH’s sweeps stories the best, by far.

I just hope the story keeping moving forward next week and does NOT languish in the graveyard of ‘seat-of-the-pants’ storytelling that GH tends to fall into.

Please, please, please let the writers showcase their professsionalism by showing us fully developed plots that entertain and satisfy.

Harry

Right, Engrady. I can’t help but think they are making it up as they go along.
The Fluke mystery has dragged on long enough and now that it seems almost certain that the Luke who appeared in the Q mansion is actually Fluke, it seems that the game of smoke and mirrors will continue.

Fluke/Luke is not dragging on it is now continuing..
The story was on hold while Tony was gone..
Now, it starts, picks up where it left off so to say..
It is a great story full of suspense and surprises, i like it, a lot!!
Now that it is continuing on it might be a awhile before the end, and that is ok, great story..

one thing we know..
Fluk is not Faison as many thought he was..

There’s no way it was Luke who Alexis and Julian rescued from Miscavige. If it was really Luke, why wouldn’t Helena have killed him with that dagger, and why would she have let Alexis and Julian walk in right after the fact? Plus, Fluke/Helena/Jerry/Larry/ whoever else they are in cahoots with would not have let Luke be rescued that easily after keeping him locked up for almost a year. I think they made a switch, kidnapped Luke to somewhere secret (like that hole in Wyndemere) and replaced him with Fluke, so Fluke would be rescued and resume his chaos on… Read more »

It is Fluke not Luke that Alexis and Julian brought home..

Helena has never wanted Luke dead. She only wants to break him down into little pieces & torment him psychologically.

It was a lovely present to the viewers. The Thanksgiving episode had something for everyone and a few golden moments. It was simple in so many ways and complex in others. I especially appreciated the little moments that made it a bit sweet.

Good job, everyone at GH!

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
