Courtesy/ABC

This week on General Hospital, it’s an all out mob war between the Corinthos clan and the Jeromes! Who will come out the victor?  Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) is in trouble!  Morgan (Bryan Craig) is working with the Jeromes! Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) are seen in the warehouse ready to do battle!

General Hospital went on location under the guidance of executive producer Frank Valentini, and all the talented crew, to make these very special scenes actually look more primetime crime drama, than daytime soap fare!

Watch this just released extended video as fans are taken behind the scenes at the making of the shootout that is set to rock the town of Port Charles!

What do you think will happen with Sonny, Carlos, Max (who looks to have been shot!), TJ, Julian, Duke, Anna, and more when the gun powder is cleared?  Weigh-in below, and watch the video after the jump!

Better yet, the GH fans were collectively very upset back in the day when Guza treid to copy The Sopranos. Fans welcomed Ron and Frank because they were going to leave the poor man’s Sopranos behind and get back to the heart of GH. Now we are back to square one. And as bad as Guza could be, at least he finished the storyboard once the action started accelerating. Ron will leave a plot line right at the story’s peak, and come back to it in a few weeks. The man does not know how to multi task which is… Read more »

GH has always brought action to the soap world. Luke and laura vs. cassidines. anna, robert,frisco, shawn constant wsb action. Holly was part of a crime family. Seriously guys thats why GH has stayed 50 years because it offers something for everyone. As long as it doesnt get stuck on one theme it will continue to please a broad audience and we’ll get to keep our soap.

But we already saw this again and again with Guza–only Guza did it better and trust me, I am no fan of the man’s.
Who thought this idiotic idea was a good one? It’s like they are trying to ruin GH and doing a damn good job of it.

Well there goes the “at-least-Ron is better than Bob Guza” defense. Between this and the firing of MM as Adam, I guess my soap watching days are coming to a close.

I think that was an absolutely action-packed, behind-the-scenes powerhouse of a clip! With that said I’ve been wondering lately if I really appreciate “getting to know” the actors via Twitter, Facebook and interviews. I’m beginning to wonder if I really want to go behind-the-scenes…or if I’d rather just get so immersed ini the stories….the fictional world…that I don’t know what the actors are really like or how they shot a scene. Yes, we have the ability to suspend our disbelief…but I also wonder if maybe it was better “back in the day” .. when actors had more of an air… Read more »

Well it’s the best of both worlds isn’t it.For the people who love the behind the scenes info and actor interviews,it’s great.For the people who like to stick to just the story,just don’t click on the links.

A mob war shoot out on GH? What a novel idea!!! And so appropriately timed…right before Christmas. I think Jill Farren Phelps has been wearing a Frank Valentini mask and Bob Guza has been wearing a Ron Carlivati mask. How else to explain the mob rise?

Johnny
Guest

I don’t know…I have never ever heard even one single fan of any soap clamor for MORE senseless violence…MORE shoot outs…MORE mob wars, MORE blood stains…more death. I just don’t get it. Back in the day we would have had Dr. Steve Hardy rounding up the kids for the Christmas story at this time. This is what we get instead. We had a decade plus of this crap already. Its not excitong…its now new…its not different…it is same old same old where this show is concerned.

Mob stories have been on tv soaps since the 1950s and especially on Edge Of Night(where it was better suited and entertaining) but its a little too much on GH…id be ok with t it wasnt so front and center and Shawn acting so desperate to kill Carlos…i have a feeling T.J. is going to get caught in the middle and shot…with all the violence in the news lately these tv shows need to cut back on violent storylines especially GH…Heathers stabbing i found a bit disturbing…where is the romance? ive watched soaps since the 1960s…there were more romantic moments… Read more »

I didn’t watch GH back in the days when it was mob wars all the time, but as a “newer” viewer (since ABC killed OLTL) I think the show has a good balance. Sonny is supposed to be this big-time crime lord. You just can’t neuter the guy and expect him to remain away from some mob action. GH isn’t bullets and guns every day of the week. We also get a lot of hospital action, love and intrigue. Are people maybe a little trigger happy with their own fears that GH will revert back to the guns without the… Read more »

I wish all these resources were devoted to better writing, relationship development, character development. Most soap devotees are attracted to relationships and drama and some great seasonal vibes, not mob shoot-outs at Christmas. Who cares whether they are shot in some warehouse somewhere. Nix the boxing set while you are at it.

If you’re going to resurrect location shooting, why not take a happy couple, say Sam and Dr Clay, and send them to an exotic locale? Cliched? Of course, but better than mob wars.

GH is full of variety, something for everyone..
Many fans like the mob..

Some people like to watch Mary Poppins and some like to watch Breaking Bad..
I am happy to have prime time action and excitement~~!

and- Bob Guza could never do it like FV and RC, they will rock it !!

GH has many awesome stories, many.. some we cry, some are HOT, some mysterious, some are campy, some have humor, some have great love, and some are action filled 🙂 I like them all..

FV and RC will do it well..

The cameramen/crew was huge!!!
producing scenes like prime-time was also exciting to watch all the professional work that was done to give us the upcoming scenes..

It felt akward…imo…when Julian was talking about his ‘facial surgery’ in front of Luke and especially Bobbi…but Jackie Z was looking good today!

agree. I think either her face fell back into place (somewhat) or her makeup should get an award of its own.

Shay

I vote on the side of makeup….someone took “Patrick’s” expert advice on the time-honored art of contouring!!!! Although there is only so much maquillage can do….what I simply do not understand about these women who ply their faces with such copious amounts of filler is that they could accomplish the same “pufferfishface” effect with a simple combination of carbs and sodium….the results look the same. Not flattering…at all.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Only if you define “good” as having cheeks twice their normal size….mercy! Sorry jimh, but sadly, JZ looked wince-inducing…truly not being mean, but she is very hard to watch, and cannot even speak properly due to all the face and lip injections she has had! The distraction totally ruined the mood that she and brother Luke were trying to evoke….someone needs to stage a plastic surgery intervention on her!

@k/kay….Thank you and I sincerely mean that, although sometimes I think that people take my honest musings for intentional sarcasm, and they truly are not intended that way! If they amuse, then I’m flattered and glad, but I generally do not aim to offend! On the other hand, there are occasions when the sarcastic quips are purely on purpose….mainly on one certain topic, and I know you know what I’m talking about, k/kay!!!! That being said, you come up with some pretty priceless observations yourselfl!!!!! Always enjoy your posts….. ; )

Oh yes, jimh, it was “wundervoll” to see our mad, malicious mutta, the delightfully deviant Dr. O again!….that loony lady may be down but she is certainly not out….just as conniving as ever! Rooting for her to triumph once again, and hoping that “Schatzi” can spring her for Christmas!!!! As for “Santa Faison,” I’m afraid that your holiday soap wishlist is going to be incomplete where he is concerned, as it seems he just may be colder than the “North Pole!” (Though I am not completely convinced he is really gone for good….)

P.S. The reason it is so disconcerting to watch JZ is that her cheeks look so over-inflated and heavy that I fear if she leans her head too far to the left or right she will tip over from the sheer imbalance….either that, or her neck will snap! And again, I am being completely serious….even if this remark does come off as flip and facetious! Whoever committed that grossly incompetent crime against her face should be sued for malpractice….I just pray for her sake the damage isn’t permanent!

I’m sorry but I am really disappointed in this storyline and I really don’t care how realistic they tried to make it. It’s Christmas time and we get mob wars and violence. I wanted to see a baby reunited with his parents on Christmas Day and the reading of the Christmas story by a Q ( maybe AJ) at General Hospital.

I get that some fans like the mob storylines and the violence but this is not the season for it.

Bah humbug!

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
