While this is an interesting idea from ABC, how is this different from the GH Fan Club Weekend every July?

If it is Creation, they lock actors into contracts and they can’t do other shows. No selfies at the table and everything is money driven. They schedule stars up against other stars. I would LOVE a convention, but not from Creation Entertainment.

ABC/D is trying to bring back super soap weekend, but as in a convention. Kudos ABC at least you’re trying. But this move is a little suspect.

Unfortunately for me, I am on the opposite side of the United States so I won’t be able to attend. But it sounds like it will be festive and fun! And I’m glad to see ABC investing in General Hospital. 🙂

I hope they bring the convention to West Palm Beach. Super Soap weekends were the best!!!

I agree Tracy. Super Soap weekends were AWESOME.

Once you paid for the admission into Disney, you had access to the park, rides, and all of the super soap events. There was “no extra charge”. I think this convention will cost a lot of money, we’ll see.

I live less than an hour away from Disney and go to the parks at least twice a month. (season pass holders). Every time I go there, I can’t help but think about Super Soap weekend. I really wish they would bring it back.

From one fan to another, “Thank You” for watching. I have been watching for a long time too. Even though GH is not at their best right now, I will never give up on them.

From the (22) cast members of GH that I met while at Super Soap Weekend, I can honestly say that only one cast member seemed a little stuck up. (She) was not that friendly.

I will tell you that Spinelli and Michael Easton (Finn) were two of my favorites. Laura Wright is very friendly and talks a lot like Carly does.

Keep watching GH. Happy Holidays!!!!

I hope they come to the east coast. I had so much fun at super soap weekends. Sad Disney pulled the plug on that. Now that ABC owns it again they should just put it out there! So many dead of people will show !

This is just one big, disgusting MONEY GRAB. Creation Events lack heart — the very essence of soap opera.. Yuck.

I would love to go to this seeing I live in the Los Angeles area, But the cost to go is outrageous for me, or just outrageous in general! Its a shame it isn’t more in my budget. I received some info and for the Gold weekend early bird price it is $549.00 for the first row seats it is $849.00. Its to bad it isn’t more reasonable! I went Years ago to a ABC fan event at Disneyland in Anaheim and I had the best time and I have some great memories from it. I will just have to keep watching and get my GH fix by the TV.

I would love to go but from what I have seen so far the tickets are very expensive. I wish they would consider the fans when setting prices. I will wait for more information but I will attend the GH fan club weekend. It’s a little less expensive..

Love the idea of having it in Burbank, so close to home! But I csn’ t afford much in the way of ticket prices. I have seen Nurse Tiffany at Costco Burbank (very friendly) and Felicia at Whole Foods Glendale and expressed my enjoyment of the show. I also thought I spied Morgan at my doctor’s office in Burbank awhile back. I am hoping he is being rewritten into the show again. He is okay?
I have been watching GH since it’s inception, when I was about 15. Stopped watching after Luke & Laura got married and returned to watching at the 50th anniversary. I have been hooked again ever since. Enjoy seeing the Webbers’ and the Quartermaines’ offspring and grandkids. Tracy Q. & Laura S. look so wonderful. Miss Luke and Nicholas. I would love to see Laura and her off stage hubby, Jonathan Frakes as well. I loved Star Trek Next Generation.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
