An update on some earlier news from this morning, when speculation began after a casting call went out for a role that sounded similar to that of Port Charles’ Sabrina Santiago!

Now, due to the fact that Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) is set to exit General Hospital to go on maternity leave, the description seemed it could be a temporary replacement, if not a permanent one.

On-Air On-Soaps spoke to an ABC rep this afternoon who indicated that GH is not recasting the role and replacing Teresa Castillo.  As to whether the casting call is indeed a temporary replacement, or a new character, there was no comment on that from the representative.

So, do you think the role is completely a different character, or temp recast?  Weigh-in below!

Yay! I would be surprised if the writers hadn’t already planned for Castillo’s maternity leave. Like most fans, I hate temporary recasts.

Jen Lilley was a brilliant temporary recast for Maxie when Kirsten had to go on medical leave.

She’s not a good replacement for Sabrina. I’m not good with all of the forced changes. I still want the old Lulu back. Hmmm!

Yes she was – and as much as I love Kirsten, I was sorry to see Jen go. Isn’t she on DOOL now?

I read from another page that the casting call was for a doctor. So, Sabrina will not have a recast.

I think it’s classy that they are indicating the actress will not be replaced, which would keep the mystery out of any temp re-casting.

Yes, I think it was classy too. Sabrina is a breath of fresh air, someone without an agenda, and we love her!

Debbie

She had an agenda. She USED Emma, a child grieving her mother, to get a grieving widower, Patrick to pay attention to her. She is far from sweet & innocent like people want to think.

rebecca1
rebecca1

@Debbie…wow! Sabrina so did NOT use Emma…I don’t know where or how you’d interpret that. You can like Sabrina or not…but she’s nothing if not loving and her feelings for Emma were and are completely sincere. It’s amazing how people can be so off about a character’s sensibility.

CrystalJ
CrystalJ

I completely agree with @Rebecca1! Sabrina is a sweetheart! She helped Patrick & Emma move on, & she did not do it in a spiteful way! She had no hidden agenda, just pure love & compassion for them. To speak so harshly of such a wonderful character is blaffing.

FAS

@Debbie…agenda? Sabrina? A lot of viewers may not like her acting skills, but Sabrina’s personality and heart are not capable of plotting any schemes. Are we watching the same soap?

Recast Robin now, with Elizabeth Hendrickson, soon to be ex chloe young and the restless. Recast Jason Morgan with Michael Muhney ex Adam.

Oh God no to the Michael Muhney suggestion!!!

Robin can never be recast. Kimberly McCullough has been on and off that soap since she was about 7 years old. Robin is truly HER character. I cannot imagine anyone else EVER playing Robin other than Kimberly!

Ha! Too bad Sean Kanan left on bad terms and has another gig. He could have come back as Jason…the Cassadine’s could have rearranged his face to cause a lil havoc…Sonny would be eternally conflicted now that his best friend has returned with the face of the man he murdered…Michael could have a two-for-one…his beloved Uncle Jason walking around in the face of his beloved bio dad. And we’d get Sean back! Win/win!

(so not happening but I like it!) 😉

I think the role is completely a different character..
A relative of Sabrina’s.. (or friend ..

andrew hass

When Teresa goes on maternity leave i think Sabrina goes back to Puerto Rico for bit and the new character could be someone she meets down there or a relative who follows her back to Port Charles to make sure Sabrina is okay.Plus even though the show is casting now the character may not show up onscreen for awhile.Also this new character could be connected to Carlos too somehow.

pat

I think it is an medical doctor for Patrick. She will fall in love with Patrick dating and Sabrina will be jealous. That is my though.

Timmm

I’m curious, what do you like about her?

Kimi

For me she is a breath of fresh air in a very stale and IMO entitled group. I love the energy, strength, and heart Teresa adds to the character. I like that her character is different, unique, and relatable. I also like the fact that she has made me laugh out loud, cry and smile. Hope you feel the same way about your fave. 🙂

Boo. I was excited for a minute there. Although I’d rather get rid of Sabrina completely. Terrible character played by a mediocre actress.

Teresa Castillo is a good actress, she plays her part as written and directed for her, very well..
I like Sabrina… Looking forward to her and Patrick..
Being Patrick is an ass it will be a bumpy ride..

TC played her part as written and so did Robin but everyone seems to think
she left Patrick and Emma . Patrick agree to her leaving, so why is he crying about it now.

Ana
Ana

That’s great news that she’s not getting replaced. Teresa is a very talented actress one would say a 1,000,000% better that Kimberly. All you Sabrina haters keep your comments to yourself, Teresa is a much better actress than Kimberly will every be. No one trashes the character of Robin or the actress that plays her so for all of us Sabrina (Teresa) fans have the same courtesy and respect that we show Robin aka: Kimberly.

C

“No one trashes the character of Robin or the actress”

Didn’t you just in the previous sentence?

Nikki
Nikki

Lol, you do realize that you actually DID just trash Kimberly, right? Saying that Teresa is a much better actress than Kimberly is trashing her. So much for showing respect :/ Patrina fans are constantly trashing Robin/Kimberly, there is no respect there. FWIW, I am a Robin fan, I have no interest in Sabrina, but I don’t go around trashing the character or the actress. Also, just as you are entitled to express your love for Sabrina, others are allowed to express their hate. So they don’t need to keep their comments to themselves, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Debbie
Debbie

And here you are trashing not only Robin…but Kimberly.

So you say, as you trash Kimberly McCullough. The irony is laughable. I guess this is a “do as I say, not as I do” type of thing?

Timmm

Ok, I wont bash Sabrina, I will praise Robin. First off, she is a wonderful actor. Secondly, she has been on the show forever and has amazing history with her character and her parents are legends. Robin is connected to Sonny, Carly, Jason, Stone, Patrick, Robert, Anna, Duke, ect.

Shay

“No one trashes the character of Robin or the actress that plays her….” Um, Ana, have you EVER read su000’s comments regarding that subject, one as recently posted as, oh yesterday????? According to her, GH is pretty much one constant jolly…EXCEPT for anything having to do with Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, of course! I rest my case.

You are for lack a better word deliusional comparing the two, because there is no comparsion. Two Time Emmy award winning actress verus a green horn, cut me a break. A legacy character with a rich history on this show verus someone who came on as a babysitter and we are suppose to believe she is better, I think you need a math lesson because you are so off the mark it is laughable.

Deb

Oh really… Wow, then why does Kimberly have 2 daytime Emmys on her mantle? As well as the respect of EVERY veteran actor on the show. Wow!!!

I do not hate Sabrina. I just like Robin better as an actress.

Sabrina is a delightful and beautiful character played by an awesome character. I am so tired of waiting for Patrick to wise up and realize that Sabrina is way better than that pompous arrogant and spoiled Robin. She always acts like she is better than everyone else.

Debbie
Debbie

Patrick wised up the day he saw his true love Robin standing before him in the church. He comes alive being around Robin. Patrick is dull and boring with the nurse. Watching paint dry is more exciting.

Cathy
Cathy

Arrogant is the glorified babysitter nurse who made Patrick ignore the calls from Robin. . Pompass is the glorified babysitter nurse who makes everything about her. He chose his Wife ROBIN, enough said. The babysitter lied about wanting Emma happy since Emma wanted her MOTHER Robin who makes her happy. So glad Emma told babysitter nurse “your not my mommy”

Kimberly is talented and didn’t have to be propped like Glorified babysitter. In fact Kimberly made THREE pairing popular.I dO agree with Kimberly and JT, that Robin and Patrick are soulmates. She and JT should know. There are a supercouple! Patrick nor JT ever had to carry Robin/Kimberly in scenes. In fact JT said he was thrilled Kimnerly his close friend was back because they just know each other and work so well together and you don’t get that with others.

natalie
natalie

There is no need for Patrick to wise up as you say because he made his choice he choice his wife because after everything that Sabrina tired and failed he still went back to Robin because in his heart of hearts he never stopped loving her. He may have been grateful to Sabrina but there is a huge difference between gratitude and love he does not and never has been in love with Sabrina but he is and always has been in love with Robin. Robin is it for Patrick no matter how hard Sabrina fans try and convince themselves the truth is the truth. And another thing the baby was never suppose to be written into the story line it was done to accommodate the actress which in my book is extremely unnecessary other actresses have been pregnant on the show and they were never afforded the same courtesy makes you wonder why this particular actress is being treated so differently. If a person didn’t know any better you would swear there is some type of favortisim at work here. Not cool GH and TIIC

Mark

Dang!

MegB

Recast the character??? They need to GET RID of the character completely! What a waste of screen time.

Shay

I’m thinking (okay, hoping, REALLY HOPING!) that is exactly what is going to happen, and this is a new character intended to placate that demographic group which will probably raise holy heck when the deplorable Disney dud is dropped.

Timmm
Timmm

Amen!

natalie
natalie

Totally agree was a mistake from the get go, and TIIC refuse to accept that she is neither fits or is wanted. a small faction of people like the character but majority finds her as one dimensional as a colorfom figure. She is flat, uninteresting and has totally dragged down the character or Patrick. He has been reduced to puppet and she is the puppeteer. It sad for long-time fans to watch this destruction of a character that had so much bravado, confidence & attitude reduced to this in favor of someone who is by no means an equal. Best thing that could happen is Sabrina stays gone. You want to move Patrick on and away from Robin I understand that but do it with an actress who is his equal not some Disney Princess Wannbe.

pat

Calm down Natalie.

To Pat who is telling me to calm down I am perfectly calm. I am stating an opinion and if you have nothing concrete to contribute except to tell me to calm down please don’t respond. It is disrespectful and condecending.

Jimmy
Jimmy

Thank you! I don’t like Sabrina and to be honest, I never have. Same with Britt, she never caught on with me. I’m hoping they write Teresa Castillo out when she goes on maternity leave because personally, I don’t see the point of her character. It’s not that I think she’s a bad actress, I would just much prefer to see Patrick with Robin, even if that means a recast. Elizabeth Hendrickson would be great IMO

Elite Advisors
Elite Advisors

I actually like the idea of replacing Kim Mc once and for all….How about Nadia Bjorn from DOOL? She and Patrick would have off the charts chemistry!!!

barbara
barbara

I don’t know how to do this, but it seems like you all know what’s been going on so anyplace is a good place to ask. It was my understanding that Kimberly was ready to come back but she only came back on a 6 mo contract. Whose idea was that? I read that the actress would return. After 50 years I am, considering getting away from GH. I started watching this almost from day one if not for day one, with my mother. IMHO I think when you watch a program for this long you feel vested in the characters you like. The idea of a Sonny that has never goes to jail is ridiculous. I guess I’d better stop here since this is about Sabrina and her actor. Maybe you could direct me to a place I can get information such as has passed here. Thanks.

KC
KC

well, if it’s NOT Her– then it means NEW character? GH already has way way way too many people

Jimmy
Jimmy

That’s what I was thinking too, are they seriously bringing on ANOTHER new character? And the casting call said for a female doctor… look at how the other two new female doctor roles – Sabrina and Britt – have played out. Not many people are fans of either of these characters. I don’t think this is the right move.

FAS
FAS

We may not like these characters, but they are far from having been played out. Whether Sabrina is recast or not, this protagonist has a lot of story left…and Britt’s story is just starting…..I still believe Sabrina has a connection with Sonny and we know that Britt’s feet are firmly planted on GH’s floor…..just my opinion.

su0000
su0000

FV&RC do one helluva job giving us new people to create new stories and not let us sit in a stale rut..
And! somehow they connect dots..

It will be a surprise!!!

natalie
natalie

makes no difference one way or another she is not a vital character is not needed and not wanted Patrick needs to be moved away from her other wise his character is going to damages beyond repair. Paring him with Sabrina was the biggest mistake GH ever made if they were smart they would explore other avenues for him. She should go on maternity leave and not come back and if she does come back be steered clear of Patrick and Emma.

Kate
Kate

Could not disagree with you more. Love Sabrina and her portrayer.

FAS

I like her also, but , I agree with Natalie…she and Patrick? No, I don’t think so. They should not be together. However, as I said, Sabrina’s story is not done…her parentage will come into play, sooner or later…then, there’s the baby’s paternity which does not sit well with me, as it stands. But, what do I know…this soap has more twists than Manson’s brain.

Patrick
Patrick

which… : dang it all… it’s said.. the head writer and executive producer.. don’t give a rats ass : what the fans think, and or want

therein, lies the quagmire… of fan recourse

simple answer… and BIG truth

pair Sabrina… with Carlos

I think they are so endearing together… and a MUST to stear toward a bigger audience…

Carlos is draw… an enigmatic… being and presence… that – tingles – for me… and ACTS… well

Sabrina is a natural with… compared to Dr. Patrick Drake

’nuff said…

Carlos said it again… regardless of whether the child is his… he loves that woman… and would CARE for… and make this a family

that makes Carlos more endearing… likeable… and a catch

he’s FUN

Lenore Boyle
Lenore Boyle

Carlos is toxic. That would be a mistake for Sabrina and him to hook up. Patrick smiles when he is with Sabrina, there is love and happiness between them. She loves Emma. Robin is selfish and does what she wants to do. Robin really screwed Patrick and Emma. Patrick, Sabrina, Emma and baby one Big Happy Family.

su0000
su0000

Patrick.. I think Sabrina will eventually be with Carlos..
However ; Sabrina being with rhe mobster killer Carlos, would be interesting lol..

I can see it now..
Carlos come home with a bullet hole and Sabrina nurses him while asking-
”how many did you kill? did the drug shipment get through?” lol yah great pair!!

FAS
FAS

Well, then, Patrick…Carlos should start this journey to endearment with a shore and a shave.

FAS
FAS

I meant shower and shave..lol. And su0000, you are right. I feel the same way. Sabrina and a Carlos will probably end up together because the baby is his. I hope I am not making a fool of myself by constantly saying this. I only question the big age difference. He does not look in his late twenties…..because he is NOT!

pat
pat

But Sabrina did not want anything to do with Emma when Robin came back.
Patrick told her she can still see Emma, Sabrina said no. Where is the love?
I guess if she could not have Patrick she did not want Emma. She want Emma if its a package deal. Patrick, Emma and Sabrina

Jennifer Cassill
Jennifer Cassill

Could not agree more. I love Carlos and Sabrina together. They have incredible chemistry. Love the characters and actors who portray them. IMO I don’t think Patrick is really all that thrilled about Sabrina having his baby. He’s just there out of obligation. I don’t care if Robin comes back or not or whether her and Patrick get back together or not. Robin didn’t have any business leaving her family after being away from them for so long. So if Robin comes back and has no family waiting for her she has only herself to blame. I won’t feel sorry for her.

FAS
FAS

I agree. Sabrina and Patrick are not a good match….this would be a big mistake. However, I do not, by any means , think that I do not like Teresa/Sabrina…..on the contrary, is love her…just not for Patrick.

Cathy

andrew hass

I knew they weren’t going to let go of Teresa Castillo right before she goes on maternity leave but the show left the door open that it could be a temporary recast of Sabrina.

I wouldn’t mind the baby being Carlos’s but I wouldn’t want them to move back to Puerto Rico. I would like to see them get together and I would like to see Carlos get out of the mob and find a respectable job so he wouldn’t be putting Sabrina and the baby in danger with his mob ties.

I think RC has done and is doing a great job as the head writer. Most stories have been very interesting and he’s found ways to connect so many characters and stories together.

Yes, there have been some stinkers, like A.J.’s death and Robin’s return and exit, but for the most part, he and FV are doing a great job with the show.

carol

Honestly, I really like sabrina, and the actress who plays her. I like them together as well.(Patrick, and sabrina) . I felt they were so good together, that I didn’t like him back with robin. It felt wrong, and in scenes from yesterday where he runs into pregnant sabrina, it felt awkward…because of the way he did truly love her. Now she is treated like a stranger . also, It didn’t feel right that he went to robin, at the alter, because of how he felt about sabrina…I think they are good together…I don’t understand how Patrick’s character, treats her like he is…doesn’t make sense at all…jmho. I didn’t like him with robin this time around..

Joyce
Joyce

I agree with you Carol.
Patrick should have stayed at the alter and married Sabrina. That baby is Patrick’s baby..not Carlos’. Carlos even said that baby is NOT his last week.Patrick fell in love with Sabrina and she helped him move-on with his life (along with other characters…like Liz, Sam etc) .
Robin left her husband and child, AFTER ALL they went through as a family. Patrick needs to make his own life, with Sabrina, Emma and new baby.

Barbara

Sabrina is a vital Character. Patrick and Sabrina are the PERFECT couple. Hopefully Robin falls into the vat where the hunksicle Jason (Steve Burton) is located and is NEVER heard from again. I don’t miss Robin, I don’t want her back. As far as Jason unless Steve Burton is Jason, leave him a frozen hunksicle until such time that Steve Burton is available to return as Jason.

natalie

Sabrina is as vital as day old bread. she is not needed nor wanted she is dragging the character of Patrick down. He deserves more than a wannbe. Set him free and let him let him interact with someone who does not see everything through rose colored glasses and fairy dust it is old and tiresome. He is not Prince Charming and she certainly is no Cinderella!

Sabrina is a good actor. Patrick needs a do-over..
He basks in his self pity.. Always ”ohh woe is me” ..
and when he is not rolling in his pity me, he is an ass, that I like about him at least he has something going on from him outside of being a cry baby when he is being an ass,, 🙂
The way Patrick is written these days he is not good enough for Sabrina and she should dump him.. He will only cry on her shoulder about his heart owwweee!
outside of that stuff I am OK with all others/else..

Jimmy
Jimmy

Consider Elizabeth Hendrickson as Robin and Billy Miller as Jason. I think that would be PERFECT casting, should the roles be recast. SB is staying at Y&R for the foreseeable future, and if all of KMc’s returns are going to be short-lived as her most recent one was, they should really recast Robin for story purposes

As for Sabrina, she is not a vital character. If she was written out, neither the show nor story would be effected by it. In fact, it might help things story-wise because it would be one less character for RC to write for. I’ve never liked her as a character but TC is an okay actress. However, she is not needed.

Well since I’m Teresa’s #1 fan and supporter I’ll say that she fit the part to the max. You can see that some of personality has become part of the character Sabrina, which is genuine and selfless. She has only been on GH for just over a year and she has a vast number of fans that truly love her, not just as Sabrina but also as Teresa. One more thing, Teresa is beautiful, sweet, and you get what you see with her. Just a kind hearted, fun person who I love dearly. Its time that Patrick character is given the freedom to move on with his life and be with the woman who is always there for him and Emma; Sabrina.

FAS

You are100 % correct. Teresa/Sabrina is all those things. I really like her a lot….just not with Patrick…my opinion, that’s all.

Cathy
Cathy

Never felt the propped Disney Princess and poor Patrick. If a pairing works there is no need to destroy characters for them. There is also no need to tell me who to like and make another character in this case Britt so evil that people had to like the princess. Wake up princess, get your own man, Patrick loves and belongs with Robin.

You can ALWAYS see the love in scenes switch Robin and Patric. .

natalie
natalie

Totally agree Cathy. The scenes between Robin and Patrick had an effortless flow and that was not the case with Sabrina and Patrick it was forced and painful to watch. I can’t for life of me figure out why TIIC have such a hard on for this character I don’t see anything that would make me want to invest in this pairing until Patrick and Robin who immediately caught my attention from their first scenes together. It is like comparing apples and pears they just are not the same at all.

Iakovos
Iakovos

I don’t care either way. Sabrina was a character I could handle. She was not mob or resurrected! But it is difficult to root for her and Jason as I want him to be with Robin. A Jason-Sabrina baby seems dumb to me, as did the Robin departure after all the buildup to a return from the dead.

Should have recast Robin. I am tired of babies on GH, actress pregnant or not.

FAS

You have your characters mixed up, maybe?

Iakovos

I meant Patrick, not Jason. I think I got actor and character names confused. I stand corrected and thank you for righting my listing ship.

I wanted Patrick and Robin to stay together, as much as it seemed Patrick could move on with Sabrina. For Patrick and Sabrina to have a baby disappoints me, after all the buildup to have Robin return. I would have preferred a recast of Robin for the sake of story. Patrick and Robin are the end game for me and I would have liked to have enjoyed the story of them rebuilding their relationship.

Don’t worry too much about Sabrina and Patrick having a baby together. I doubt it will turn out that way. I strongly suspect Carlos is the baby’s daddy.

I liked Teresa and her character from the beginning. Teresa can only portray Sabrina the way Ron and the others write her, so I think it’s unfair for people to say that Teresa isn’t doing a great job. Unthinking people blame the actress (any actress or actor) for what is most often the writers’ deficiencies.
Having watched Kimberley McCullough from the first day she began on G.H. and her frequent exits and comebacks, I find it too jarring to have her come and go as she has the past few times due to her other passion of directing. As much as I love the character of Robin, I’d rather see that character not return any more than go through any more heartbreaking exits from her family and we viewers.
As a Canadian, I love seeing Jason Thompson on my screen — which doesn’t happen nearly often enough — and I think he has chemistry with Teresa and would like to see Patrick and Sabrina as a couple again, for themselves as well as for their baby. But all of these characters are at the mercy of the head writer and his team, and if Ron can’t be bothered to write good stories (or any at all) for all of the characters on screen [did he EVER like A.J.?], then the show will become the G.H. that Bob Guza wrote. As far as I’m concerned, it’s already well on its way to that terrible time when the only characters written for on a regular basis were Sonny and Carly; add Franco to that list now.
Fans/posters: Please re-read what you’ve typed for spelling and grammar before you press the Submit button, and for the few of you who have negative comments, at least don’t be hateful. How would you feel if some stranger wrote horrible remarks on your personal character or life? There’s such a thing as constructive criticism without being mean and destructive.

A writer writes the lines, a director directs the actor/actress…but, so far and do much…the rest is up to the protagonist….

I actually like Teresa as Sabrina. I think the problem with the show is that there are way too many recurring characters. With so many characters, both the characters and their storylines get lost in the shuffle, we lose interest, then a quick end to the storyline is developed to wrap it up. It’s a disservice to the viewers. We no longer have supercouples, mysteries, cliff-hanger Fridays. Clean house with the newcomers and focus on the contract and veteran actors. Get rid of the tween scene, too. Way too many of them.

Sabrina, if I remember right is a cousin to Sonny’s long dead wife Lily. Sabrinais going to Puerto Rico perhaps Lily is coming back from the dead. That would make life in Port Chuck interesting.

No temps please! PLEASE bring back Julie as LuLu, ditch the new Franco, and lose Sam! As much as Kimberly Mc is a part of GH, I don’t care for her character any more. Glad Laura is gone and they should send Baldwin packing! Too many characters makes for confusion.Concentrate on Michael, Morgan, Kiki and Maxi. Miss Spinnelli! Mis Jason but don’t recast him!

As much as all of it sucks, the powers that be will do what is necessary to keep the story line going forward.

I love Sabrina’s character! I think her a Patrick should be together. I don’t think they should bring Robin back unless it is when a replacement for Steve Burton is found and Jason returns! The writers obviously want them together considering every time she leaves it is somehow or another connected to Jason. Also, I think Eric Winters would be an AWESOME Jason! He used to play Rex on Days of Our Lives! He is AMAZING!

I really like Sabrina (Teresa). I’m so happy they’re not replacing her. She did the right thing for Robin and Patrick. Now, that Robin chose to leave – yet again, I would like to see her with Patrick and Emma. Let them get married, have their family, and let’s finally have a “normal” family on GH.

We love Sabrina and it will not be the same without her. When she goes to have her baby, please bring her back. No one else can play sweet Sabrina. Patrick won’t be right without our Sabrina.

Sabrina should be with Carlos. He is way hotter than Patrick and he is the one that truly loves Sabrina, not Patrick. Carlos loves Sabrina more than Patrick ever could or ever would. He even offered to raise another man’s child. Don’t know too many men who would do that. Patrick is just interested in this baby of Sabrina’s out of obligation that’s it. You can even tell by the way he acts around Sabrina. It even mentioned that he missed several Dr’s appointments with Sabrina but Carlos showed up in case Patrick wasn’t going to show up again. I thought that was the sweetest thing ever and it speaks volumes about how Carlos would be there for Sabrina and her baby. Carlos was right when he asked Patrick, “When have you ever put Sabrina and her baby first 100%?” Another comment he made that was also true was when he said, “If your wife walked through that door right now you would drop Sabrina so fast her head would spin.” He was absolutely correct on that….just wish he would get out of the mob and get a regular job so he, Sabrina and baby can live happily ever after….

Please don’t take Theresa as sabrina off of General hospital and why change anything as the old saying goes why fix something that isn’t broke she is doing a great job but i don’t think she needs to be with Patrick as we all know robin is coming back but as a replacement you all shouldn’t have broke up the wedding between Patrick and Sabrina when Robin came back and break Sabrinas heart that way as you all knew Robin wasn’t staying..Now let her move on to someone else that will love her and Please let her precious baby live..You all don’t listen to us anyway as i said from the get go we become to love people on there then you killl them off like AJ he was beginnning to be good then you killed him off please let Ava pay for her crimes…

Teresa Castillo(as Sabrina)plays one of the most refreshing characters on the show. Robin’s return was wonderful for Emma but so devastating to Sabrina who handled it with dignity and class. Robin and Patrick had no chemistry this time around.
I love GH and have watched it forever, but right now there is way too much dysfunction ! They need to have one beautiful love story on there right now. Patrick and Sabrina were it! I sincerely hope that after Teresa’s maternity leave, she will return and the writers will bring them back together again.

I love Sabrina she is pure, and has real love for Emma and Patric. I love Robin too I’ve watched her since she started at gh. But poor Patric needs a real wife and mother for her daughter.. Bring Sabrina back.. She’s perfect for them.

I THINK THE WORST CHARACTER ON GH IS LEVI. CAN’T STAND TO WATCH HIM. HOPE HE HAS A SHORT CONTRACT!

Bring Teresa Castillo back as Sabrina Santiago when she is ready to come back. Nobody can replace her. She is awesome and was great for Patrick and Emma.

I just hope Theresa comes back after maternity leave. I love her as Sabrina so much. I was pulling for Patrick to pick Sabrina over Robin (I know that’s not a popular opinion). Sabrina had so much more chemistry with Patrick than Robin. Robin was the cutest kid ever, but she seems a little cold as an adult.

If possible I would like if sabrina returned to GH , or replace her but keep the character alive.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Three: Trouble Looms For Ava, Cameron’s Heartfelt Song, A Liesl & Franco Duet

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the third installment of the Nurses’ Ball 2019 and this time there were several musical numbers to discuss, as well as story points moving forward.

Obrecht was back and in her full glory and that meant great news to GH fans to see Kathleen Gati appear on the Nurses’ Ball stage again.  However, Dr. O brought with her a friend, none other than Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who joined Frau Liesl in a rendition of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet “Guilty”.   The combo, obviously a play on how they do bad things to others (or have), and they have nothing to feel guilty about!  Then, there was that drop the mic moment, literally!

Cameron (William Lipton) has shown up at the Corinthos’ home to give Josslyn (Eden McCoy) a video message from Oscar (Garren Stitt) that he was holding on to per Oscar’s dying request to give to Joss.  Before he leaves, she asks Cameron to stay and watch it with her, but he tells her she should do this alone.  Later, Josslyn watches the video on her laptop.  Contained in the video is Oscar saying how grateful he was for their time together and that he hopes she will lives life to the fullest, starting with singing their song at the Nurses’ Ball.   Next, Josslyn comes down the stairs of the house in her gown ready to honor Oscar and she heads out to the ball.

When Joss arrives, Cameron is now taking the stage.  William Lipton performs a song he wrote called “North Star” against the backdrop of emotional images of the friendship between Cameron, Josslyn, and the late Oscar.  (You can watch it below.  It was one of the highlights of the ball thus far)

Lipton took to his Twitter account after the outpouring of kudos and support after his performance aired expressing: “Thank you so much for all your kind words for the song Cam was singing at The spotlight should be at the GH writers who inspired me to write this song. Their words in the script were so beautiful.”

Ava Jerome also took to the stage as the marvelous Maura West performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” as only Ava J. would do! A sultry chanteuse is this Port Charles bad girl, whose night may go from a cool performance to a nightmare now that a gloved figure has knocked out Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), which only leads to one conclusion .. serial killer Ryan is back.  Will Ava get her vengeance and kill the guy, or will someone else?

Elsewhere in story, Finn (Michael Easton) proposed to Anna (Finola Hughes) on-stage at the ball, and though it was a typical bumbling clumsy moment from Finn, it was all the same endearing, especially when Anna says “yes” to his proposal.  Later, the two spend some alone time where Finn explains why he chose the ring he did; harkening back to when she was blackmailing him in Europe (It was a Monaco blue sapphire he chose, and Monaco was the place where they started their unlikely pairing).

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) tries to warn Sam (Kelly Monaco) about Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but her parents Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) come to her aid, and then Sonny once again threatens Shiloh.  Later, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) gets a call from Diane Miller that Nina (Michelle Stafford) overhears.  On the call, Willow mentions her baby’s father is in Port Charles.  Nina learns Willow had a baby, and Shiloh looks at Willow.

Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) are rescued in Canada, and Laura calls Kevin’s cellphone but it goes to voice message to warn him about Ryan heading to Port Charles.   Meanwhile, Curtis calls Chase (Josh Swickard) and tells him that Ryan Chamberlain is alive. and on his way to most probably the Nurses’ Ball.

So, what musical number did you enjoy the most on Tuesday’s Nurses’ Ball?  What did you think of Anna and Finn getting engaged?  Shiloh overhearing the news about Willow?  Josslyn receiving the video message from Oscar to perform at the ball? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Two: Cameron and the Llama, Anna’s Speech, Chase Dazzles

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, it was day two of the annual Nurses’ Ball, and things kicked-off with the opening number by the GH nursing staff, (except Elizabeth) performing the classic hit “Best of My Love” by the Emotions.   After the number, the drama started to unfold as the GH Nurses’ Ball always intersects storylines with the event.

Scott’s (Kin Shriner) plan goes awry when he opens Lucy’s (Lynn Herring) hotel room door hoping to find her making out with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), but only Kevin is there, as Ava (Maura West) figures out what Scott has been up to.  Kevin and Ava are continuing their ruse to try to lure Ryan out of hiding, but seem to be enjoying each others company more than they admit.

When Mike (Max Gail)  and Yvonne (Janet Hubert) arrive. they show off the engagement ring that Mike gave to Yvonne, which Finn (Michael Easton) sees and realizes that is his engagement ring to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he has been looking for.  Finn talks to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and they come up with an emergency plan to get the ring back, which goes off without hitch by Finn giving Mike the fake one Robert (Tristan Rogers) had.

Watching the ball at home, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is with Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), and Kris flips out when she sees Sam (Kelly Monaco) with Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) at the festivities.  Meanwhile, Peter (Wes Ramsey) lowers the boom on Shiloh telling him that Molly (Haley Pullos) will be doing an expose on “Dawn of Day”.  At the same time Jason (Steve Burton) and Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) hatch their own plot to nab Shiloh, and are setting up surveillance cameras at DOD.

Backstage, Cameron (William Lipton), who is ready to perform solo finds Lucy’s llama. and in the most touching moment of the episode has a heart-to-heart with the animal about losing Oscar.  William Lipton throughout the episode was terrific.

Now we come to Anna and Robert.  Anna wants to set her ex straight by telling him that she will always love him, but she wants to marry Finn, and she doesn’t know what he is up to … but to stop it – since it appears Robert is trying to be the interloper in Anna’s romance with Finn.  Later, Finn tells Robert he has his ring back and will propose to Anna

Next, after a rousing intro by Lucy, Chase (Josh Swickard) performs “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay and brings the house down and brings his gal, Willow (Katelyn MacMullan) to the stage with him to dance and finish the musical number.

As the episode comes to its conclusion, three plot points emerge:  Kristina shows up at the ball ready to confront Shiloh, as Sam looks horrified.

Cameron shows up to the Corinthos’ home to talk to Josslyn and convince her to come to the ball with him and perform, because the song is a duet, and he says to her that he has a message from Oscar to give her.

Lastly, Robin could not make it to the Nurses’ Ball this year. The annual moving speech falls to her mother, Anna to deliver about surviving and living with HIV (touchingly delivered by Finola Hughes).  Robert says he will join her on stage, because Robin is his daughter too.  From the sidelines, Robert and Finn start to watch Anna’s emotional speech,  Robert finally tells Finn he better make Anna happy. but knocks him in the arm in the process.  Finn drops the engagement ring and it ends up at Anna’s feet onstage.  She looks to the sidelines and sees both men.  Can she figure out who just proposed?

So, what was your favorite moment from the second installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below
