Bobbie’s Diabetes Diagnosis Serves Up Story For Longtime GH Vet, Jackie Zeman

Photo: ABC

On Wednesday’s episode General Hospital viewers, and Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman), learned that she has type 2 diabetes.  Lucas (Ryan Carnes) who has type 1, tells his mother that she tested positive for the disease.

Reeling from the diagnosis, Bobbie can’t understand how she has it when she takes very good care of herself.  To give her a dose of reality, Lucas says it is happening and now, and more than ever, she really needs to take care of herself, because it could lead to a number of health complications if not managed properly.

This gives long-running and beloved GH cast member Jackie Zeman some story to play.  In an interview with TV Insider on GH telling another important medical issue, Zeman shared: “The complexity of getting to play Bobbie having type 2 diabetes is very interesting because there are so many people who are affected by diabetes in this country. We should have it on the show. This story is a reminder of the complexities of life, the cycle of life. Wonderful things happen and challenging things happen. Sometimes, they happen at the same time. You have to look at it and say it’s all good.”

As to how GH will be dealing with Bobbie’s type 2 diabetes medical diagnosis, Jackie expressed: “They say that stress is a big factor. One of the symptoms is thirst. Also, vision gets blurry. A lot of people in the health care profession are always too busy taking care of everybody else. It’s easy for Bobbie to dismiss the symptoms. She thinks I’ll get to it when I get to it.”

So, what do you think about GH having Bobbie Spencer have diabetes?  Do you hope the show continues to shed light for some time to come by a disease  shared by so many in the world?  Comment below.

This is a good topic to share considering the show is called General Hospital. Also kill off Shilow and and a great who done it for fall

@Jim…Port Charles’ sickening Svengali absolutely needs to go bye-bye! May I suggest he receives the “Rasputin” treatment? That should assure his demise will be a permanent one!

ANY story for one of the beloved vets, I’m on board! Diabetes is a MAJOR issue and I hope GH says on top of this like they have with Alzheimer! Go Jackie!

One of the things that GH does so well is their ability to showcase medical and social issues that are prevalent in our country. By drawing attention to Type 2 Diabetes, GH is opening viewers’ eyes about the symptoms and difficulties associated with the disease. I’m hoping that it starts dialogues in families and between doctors and patients, and I truly hope that this is not going to be a short story arc but one that cycles back during good times and bad. Bobbie is the perfect character for this story line…as are her family and friends, who will give her the support and she needs.

I’m happy for her to have some story to play other than a sentence or two here or there. Don’t know how much more they’re going to get out of this story other than a PSA, but hope there’s something more for Jackie to play. I really liked seeing her and Ryan playing across from each other as “mother and son”. GH needs to mine the familial relationships more and deeper, IMHO.

Hi Patric 🙂
Ok- ‘Diabetes’
Is that a new one or, how many characters have diabetes??

Soap Health Crisis is overwhelming.
(is it the disease of the month)
–Many Transplants; Liver, Heart, Kidneys — Many- Brain Tumours — Deaf now Hears– Blind then sight– MS– Many Many Cancers– Amnesia too many to remember lol — Aids- Many Miscarriage — Brain Worms –Comas — Paralyzed–
— Whatever the disease of the Month is a character will have it.

So- what will the next health crisis be?
Well?? lol
0ooh- Leprosy- Malaria – Black Plague?
None have been used yet, right?? AHA!!

Do tell- have I missed any?? STD’s
you’ll know if I have.

Niki’s MS seems to be gone, Devon’s deaness is gone- whichever aliment, cancers are gone, It’s Miracles!
Bobbie will be just fine 🙂

You forgot the greatest medical miracle in the history of daytime…. when Phillip Kiriakis got his leg blown off in Iraq, but it somehow grew back.

With all the casual hook-ups that happen in Port Charles, an STD storyline certainly wouldn’t go amiss, su! Especially in the over 50’s crowd, as such diseases are actually running rampant in that particular “real life” demographic..(No shortage of prospective GH characters who could be included in that group, but I won’t name names…) The only time I vaguely even recall such subject matter being broached in daytime was on Y&R eons ago…I believe a teenaged Nikki and Paul were involved in that one, although I really wasn’t allowed to watch it due to my tender age, so I cannot. offer any further details! (And of course, at the apex of his career, Anthony Geary starred with Judith Light in a herpes-themed ABC Movie of the Week called “Intimate Agony.” Quite the understated title there, eh?)

Hi Shay,
Maybe you were too young back then, but when Lily and Colleen on Y&R, first got interested in boys, Lily met bad boy Kevin, he seduced her to his apartment, where she lost her virginity and wound up with an STD.

Shay
Shay

Thank you for sharing your recollections with me, Violet! Those names which you have referenced don’t ring a bell for me…my first brief glimpses of Y&R came in the waning days of the Brooks Sisters (especially Lorie and Lesley….I thought Jaime Lynn Bauer was the show’s most elegant and sophisticated character…I just loved to see what that statuesque beauty was wearing…no matter the fashion choice, she always looked fabulous!) However, my more regular viewing began with the advent of the Abbotts….but I do remember Nikki’s sis, Dr. Casey Reed, who was decidedly frosty to the notion of sex, much unlike her licentious younger sibling who was all about it! The only specific aspect I can really envision regarding that earlier time in Genoa City is a very young Paul Williams and Nikki doing what came naturally and the accompanying disease-ridden consequences of that action! At least, I believe that was the case….soon after, Nikki took up stripping, caught Victor Newman’s eye, and the rest, as they say, was history!!! Lol….At any rate, I hope you have a very happy 4th of July holiday week, Violet! It’s always a treat to hear from you!

Thanks for sharing my memories. I also loved the Brooks sisters, and their own unique stories. I thought their dad was the most handsome man.I still enjoy seeing Jamie Lynn Bauer when she plays Jennifer’s mom on Days. I am surprised that you do not remember Neil’s daughter Lily and Traci’s daughter Colleen and all the trouble they’d get into as teens.Thanks for the holiday wishes, and right back at you. I live in San Diego, so will be watching the fireworks from N.Y on TV.

@Violet…Thank you for clearing up the mystery regarding Y&R’s “Colleen” and “Lily!” I didn’t realize you were speaking of characters from what, the ‘90’s on? I thought that they were from the show’s early days before I even watched it. Although I really enjoyed the ‘80’s version of Y&R, mainly because of Jack and Ashley Abbott, I pretty much quit watching once Terry Lester stopped playing his naughty, saucy “Jack The Lad”….there was simply no way that “Dr. Cliff Warner” was ever going to fill that role for me! Hence unless the discussion revolves around characters still remaining from that particular time frame, then I am generally lost…Of course, I do know some of the more recent, highly-publicized Genoa City players like Adam and Phyllis (UGH!) but beyond that, I couldn’t name most from either the past few decades or the present. At this point, even trying to keep up with GH’s ever-revolving cast is enough for me…LOL. At any rate, I hope you had a pleasant holiday and didn’t suffer any great reverberations from the big quake up North this morning….Even though I’m on the other side of the country, I’ve lived through one very minor temblor in my life and it was extremely disconcerting to feel the earth…move…under…my…feet! Given the horribly hot and humid headache-inducing weather we are currently experiencing in the East, I was with you on taking in the fireworks in the cool comfort of home via TV, although I chose to watch the DC festivities…they were quite magnificent, but I know New York also does a great show, too….I still remember the fabulous 1986 Statue of Liberty tribute that was absolutely breathtaking! For some reason, fireworks taking place over the water always seem more impressive…I’ve witnessed some unforgettable light shows over the Atlantic Ocean shoreline. Later, Violet!

Hi Shay
Thanks for your quick response.
First of all I didn’t realize that you weren’t a regular Y&R viewer. I also loved Terry Lester, more so on ATWT. Is GH the only soap you watch? I watch all of them, but have stopped B&B for awhile, too disturbing SL right now.
I was born on L.I but grew up in Connecticut, with the scary hurricanes, worst in my memory was 1937. Being only 5 yrs.old, I’ve never forgotten it. I lived in the mid- west for while, and it was tornado warnings, so when I arrived in Cal. I thought, oh I can handle an earthquake or two. Wrong! They are all scary. The one yesterday, I didn’t feel or know about, until I read it on-line. I was surprised because how close we are to L.A.
I wound up watching a little of the D.C fireworks also. You are right about how beautiful they are, when viewed over the water. I used to watch them years ago, over San Diego Bay, with the boats and all, was spectacular. What I miss most is the seafood from the Atlantic waters, so much colder waters than ours.”Talk” to you soon.

It’s always my pleasure, Violet! Alas, “GH” is the only soap I “follow” these days….I cannot even call myself a viewer that much anymore…I read recaps, see what everyone here has to say about the latest developments and then take an online peek at certain characters I still enjoy like Anna, Robert, Laura, et al…but I was a HUGE fan of the show back in the ‘80’s and on-and-off since then. Then again, I watched nearly all the soaps back in the day, requiring multiple VCR machines to stay up on the sheer volume of episodes available each week….but that was then and this is now. I just don’t have the time or same inclination to “do daytime,” however, I still have such fond memories of all the soaps, both those defunct and still remaining! So when one mentions a character from any soap that I recall, I will comment….I used to love “B&B” until it became the “Brooke Logan Show,” and “DOOL” was another favorite due to the DiMeras….especially Thaao Penghlis’ Tony/Andre, since I first adored him as GH’s Victor Cassadine! I also enjoyed AMC and OLTL in their heyday, but by the time they were cancelled, I had long lost interest in them. I also have a nostalgic soft spot for “Capitol,” “Santa Barbara,” “Loving” and “Ryan’s Hope!” They were all on my watchlist at some point….as was ATWT, although I sadly missed Terry Lester’s “Royce,” which I understand was one of his best roles. As far as your early life on the East Coast, I think both New York and Connecticut are beautiful states despite the sometimes horrible weather conditions you have mentioned! I’ve always gravitated to that part of the country for vacations and life, in general. I love having four seasons and spent many a holiday on various North Atlantic beaches and in large coastal cities… as well as Canada. I’m just not a sunshine and palm tree sort of gal…I like cold temps and fall and winter, and there is no better place for that than New England! Of course, I could do without tornadoes and floods, but no matter where one dwells, there is always some peril from Mother Nature involved! Since we last “spoke,” I noticed that your neck of the woods has experienced more earthquake activity….I sincerely hope that you remained as blissfully unaware of those temblors as the previous ones, and that all of our California friends here at MFTV stay safe a sound….including the man himself! At any rate, I always enjoy your posts…you have the most marvelous, devil may care wit, and I often find myself LOL-ing at your remarks! Take care, Violet and have a great rest-of-the-weekend! Later….P.S. I hear you about the cold water seafood…even though I must be careful with my intake due to allergy of said cuisine, what I have been able to taste was absolutely delicious! The shrimp and lobster were divine and I’ve always liked a nice codfish dinner, albeit in necessarily… Read more »

Hi Shay
I have probably watched every soap there has been over the years. I started in 1954, and The Edge Of Night, Secret Storm, ATWT, GL, etc. were among favorites. I really did not get in to Ryan’s Hope, but most of all the others you mentioned, I enjoyed at one time or another. I loved Santa Barbara especially, and was so sad to see it go.Nancy Ann Grahn, has hardly changed.
Have felt no quake action, so am just holding my breath.Our weather is so beautiful, I have never been sorry moving to Ca. I truly believe it is God’s country. I have been coast to coast, but never to the southern part of the country.
Well, enough of the boring Travelogue, it’s 2A.M,time this old lady got to bed. Hope to “talk” to you soon.

Shay

@Violet…Ooooh, I forget to mention my passion for Edge of Night in its last years…thank you for the reminder, my fellow “Night Owl!”! I was totally enthralled with Charles Flohe’s Preacher…he was just sooooo dreamy and gorgeous, whilst Larkin Malloy’s Sky Whitney was as handsome and dashing as any soap opera leading man could have ever hoped to be. I was completely crushed when Monticello went dark….Santa Barbara was also a rollicking ride of good fun for a number of years before it went rapidly downhill toward eventual oblivion…Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed NLG’s resilient, determined Julia Wainwright, especially in her supercoupling with Lane Davies’ tortured, mercurial Mason Capwell. Their chemistry was amazing during their long-term, honest-to-goodness emotion-filled up-and-down relationship which was built around so much more than torrid, tempestuous sexual shenanigans…unlike the assorted amoral antics of Alexis and her carnal crew of questionable characters that she has amassed in Port Charles over the last few decades! At any rate, I’m glad to know that you’ve not experienced the “whole lotta shakin” that your neighbors to the North have, Violet…May you remain safe and sound in “God’s Country!”

Violet Lemm

Hi Shay
First, thanks for the well wishes. I was a very big fan of S.B, although I felt they ruined it at the end, too much crazy stuff. I wanted to ask you if you watched Edge from the beginning? I was reminded of another Larkin, John, who was the first Mike Carr. Just a little nugget here.John also played Perry Mason on the radio, and he had such a distinctive voice, I recognized him right away, although I had never seen him. Another favorite was Secret Storm, that came on just before Edge.

OMG, no!!!! I wasn’t near being born when EON began, Violet! My only experience with that soap was in its waning years….perhaps the last two, if even? For some reason, I started looking in on Monticello right before the time Preacher Emerson came on the scene…the day he arrived, it was like a thunderbolt moment…I was totally riveted by the amazing Charles Flohe!!! The fact that he had an uncanny resemblance—right down to certain facial expressions and phrases he used—to a real life beau whose family had recently moved away only added to my fascination …hence watching him was very much bittersweet, but also cathartic! (Lotsa tears…but still love my Preacher memories…sigh!) I do recall there was a soap named “Secret Storm,” but never saw it…my daytime viewing very slowly began in the late ‘70’s into the ‘80’s when I was quite young and impressionable…needless to add, my mother frowned upon the habit and did everything in her power to dissuade me from spending too much time parked in front of the TV screen instead of engaging in more productive tweener activities, so they were more of an occasional treat, as opposed to a daily happening for me. (Only on holiday and summer school breaks or maybe once in a while at a friend’s house….) But by the the time GH became a phenomenon, I was a hardcore soap fan…loved all the ‘80’s primetime dramas, too. Those truly were the halcyon days for serials!!!!

they ( frank/shelly/chris ) CERTAINLY – NEED – to put to rest Max Gail’ Mike.

even I know it’s obvious .. Shelly/Chris are that lame… to keep trotting out absent minded Mike… seems more fitting than altzheimers’ doesn’t it? ALL of this misstep to PROP Maurice Benard. JOKE is on US.. the audience, who truly ARE in fact… affected by this horrific debilitating illness.

I can give ONE prop to Shelly/Chris for the magical show of Jon Lindstrom.. AND all those in and around who stepped up to the plate… WOW !!! @GH

Dante short RUN was proof positive DZ acting chop is still untapped

I want to have high hope for Jaclyn Zeman.. but I so agree… Shelly AND Chris value as a writing team .. is as inept as they come. I’m hoping that that TWITTER FEED on sharing that Shelly is looking to retire… WHOOPIE that’s one happy dance I’ll not let up on

There are; Diabetes support groups and a list of useful resources for people with diabetes for support offering factual information.
I would never get advice, about deadly health problems from a soap opera !!
Your doctor and their nurses are your information, not a soap opera.

And- the soaps having all these deadly diseases create hypochondriacs !! lol

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

suOOO,
I have to agree with you. You don’t know how many times, back when I was young and gullible, I would be watching one soap or another, when someone had some mysterious disease, and I would wonder if I had it too.
I have had diabetes 2 for many years,take medication and insulin, and the very last thing I need is having it preached about on a daily basis on a show I watch for a little escape from the real world, and some enjoyment. If I need help with my medical issues, I’ll watch an infomercial, or see my doctor, whom I get enough counselling from.
Also one of the big drug companies is sponsoring these shows, enough said!

I so love Max Gail, but the way they are dragging this out is insane. The poor man acts perfectly normal one minute, except for forgetting names and then in the next breath is talking about marrying another man’s wife, with the encouragement of Sonny and Carly. I feel sorry for Marcus, just having to give into all this craziness. Okay, I’ve ranted enough, sorry!

Harry

I love Jackie but feel Frank is teasing us long time viewers by dangling the vets before our eyes so we plod obediently forward with the show. Case in point? Robert and Mac Scorpio are back! And it felt like they never left as they acted in perfect lock step with each other. I hope Mac stays as the Port Charles police commissioner and Robert stays as the DA.No offense to Jordan, she has proven to woefully inept as police commissioner no matter what actress is playing her. The collective and positive reaction to seeing the Scorpio brothers reunited was through the roof! They have sparkle! They have charisma! They have chemistry! More please–this could be fun. See? GH has been rather dark and depressing as of late. Sixteen year-old Oscar dies from brain cancer and his parents grieve with Kim going off the deep end with her grief. The Shyster story line is also very dark and not very fun. Weeping Willow’s mother, Disharmony, is an utter disgrace of a mother and brings out the ick factor for me. Then, if things weren’t depressing enough, Sonny and Carly discover that their fetus has spinal bifida and they wrestle with some very grave issues. Now, Bobbie has type 2 diabetes? I need escapism from my escapism! Yes, I guess Lizzy and Franco can provide that escapism but I am really more excited about the Scorpio brothers being brought back to the canvas.

Ok, I got the message, GH has chosen a history of shining light on health issues. Just sometimes, the writing doesn’t flow, and feels more t like a PSA commercial. A lot of redundancy in statements….ie: diabetic heart, list of symptoms, death… Seemed too preachy.
I don’t mind that you have characters dealing with health issues, just be mindful its not a news or documentary show… its a day time drama!

If you’re gonna tell a medical story, you might as well tell it factually and accurately. That’s one thing GH has done very well over the years, most recently with the Alzheimer’s storyline.

I agree with you, Evelyn. Frankly, I’m not for ANY medical stories unless it’s some guest player with a story. I have no desire to hear about any disease from a soap. I prefer romance, betrayal, cray cray, intrigue, war and peace, cops n robbers, and family, friends, enemies, etc, etc. Bring back the Helenas, Faisons, Cassadines and all the magical mysteries and mayhem. Leave the medical stuff to medical shows; escapism shouldn’t be doom and gloom ie..Oscar’s brain tumor. Hated it.

As a Diabetic, I fiend this storyline stupid and boring..Is this a soap or an informercial?? Eat less carbs and do some exercise and your type 2 is under control..Like me, take your insulin and eat well and exercise and your type 1 is under control..I want to be entertain!! Give me some terminal brain tumor or something more extreme and dramatic to weep and cheer for recovery..Diabetes, Really GH!!!

Satan

Some of the dialogue does seem a little bit too heavily scripted. I keep waiting for somebody to write Bobbie a prescription for a specific medication, and then…. what do you know, cut to a commercial advertising that very drug!

Not that I ever watch GH in real time and sit through 25 minutes of commercials…. but I’ve seen enough to know Big Pharma is a sizeable portion of those ads.

OMG, Bobbie and Scotty, not again? Why not drag in Lucy too? The way she throws herself at men, especially Kevin, I’m sure she would love another go at Scott.
So sorry that great-granny Bobbie has diabetes but there are other healthful ways to deal with it than starting up an old timer’s romance. I know I sound terrible saying this, but it is so boring to me. I like the old characters as well as anyone, but I’d rather they concentrate on the young people, as I’ve seen the others have their romances years ago. Ok guys, send me all your comments for being such an old sour puss.

Shay
Shay

Are you suggesting a second round of rug wrestling between those two oversexed hussies of a certain age over whom gets to occupy Scotty’s bed (again….and again?) My word, Violet, that scenario was disgraceful enough the first time around…especially when Bobbie was proudly proclaiming her past as a prostitute after decades of trying to live down her tawdry teenage trade experience. As for the ever-hustling Coe, enough of her already….with her yearly overbearing stint pushing the NB thankfully over and done, it’s time to send her off to parts unknown where she can continue to gold dig, insinuate herself into other people’s business and generally conduct herself like the low-class alley cat she has been since Day One. Which still leaves Scott available….I suggest Alexis fills the vacancy in his boudoir….they can exchange dirty legalese double entendres, plus she’s always up for a good roll in the hay, especially since she didn’t go for it with Rasputin (which would have been very much in character for her, given her infamous propensity for rumpy-pumpy with dangerous, irredeemable criminal types…) Oh, and you’re not an old sour puss…more like a reliably consistent laugh riot who simply calls it as she sees it!

Violet Lemm

Oh Shay
You crack me up, as you do have a way with words that I sure agree with. There are so many Bobbie and Lucy lovers, that I’m afraid to say too much. I can never understand how and why these two women are admired so. I cringe every time Lucy hangs all over Kevin, calling him Doc, yuk! I like Scotty, but couldn’t stand him chasing after Bobbie, on his little skate board. I record the shows, and I will be FF if they start a romantic SL. They better hurry up, those old tomatoes have been hanging on the vine long enough, now.

I know it’s called General Hospital, but I think I’ve had enough of all of the sickness, dying and big pharma commercials ( which I mute or change channels to avoid) that I can stand. Now we also have to get ready for Carly/Sonny’s new baby, just having been through Morgan, which along with Sonny’s dad, a story they keep dragging out. Along with the news, which I’m watching less and less of, and which is also depressing, I can really see the day I’m going to opt out of GH. It really has lost any semblance of love, fun, and adventure in the afternoon it used to have. But on a good note I went to a farmers market with my family on the weekend. Along with fresh food, there were a variety of all kinds of vendors…and all kinds of people enjoying themselves.

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.

Cause of Death of Disney and ‘GH: Night Shift’ Alum, Cameron Boyce Deferred Following Autopsy; Industry Heartbroken Over Loss

Fans, and the entertainment industry including; many soap opera notables, have been saddened over the sudden death of the very popular Disney Channel star, Cameron Boyce over this past weekend.

On Monday, an autopsy was performed and the cause of death was ‘deferred pending further investigation’ according to the L.A. County Department of Medical Examiner Coronier’s office.

Boyce was found unresponsive in his home on Saturday afternoon.  A spokesperson for the Boyce family said in statement previously that the beloved actor died from a seizure in his sleep: “It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron.  He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”

Although, best known for his roles on the Descendants and the TV series Jessie,  as well as the movies Grown Up and Grown Ups 2 that starred Adam Sander, Boyce was only 20 years old.

Boyce also appeared on General Hospital’s spin-off, GH: Night Shift in the role of Stone, the son of Jagger Cates (Antonio Sabato Jr.) and Karen.  Upon learning of his death, his former on-screen dad, Sabato Jr. tweeted: ” Rest In Peace Cameron Boyce, it was an honor to have worked with you and spend our time together. Man my heart is broken, what an amazing kid with an amazing future. My deepest condolences to his family & friends. We will all miss you. #brokenheart.”

Kimberly McCullough, (Robin, GH) posted, “#CameronBoyce Had the pleasure of working with him on Night Shift where he played ‘Stone Jr.’ Broke out some crazy legs one day on set.  That’s how I’ll remember him. RIP bright soul.”

Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) shared a video with Boyce.  Michelle’s daughter Natalia was a big fan of Boyce.  Staffotd wrote in her Instagram post: “NO ONE and NOTHING is way cooler than you, you beautiful, sweet, Talented shining star. Anyone who has young children has probably watched this man 1 million times! And seen just how talented he is. What an honor to have met this young, charismatic man who joyfully sent this message to my daughter who is IN LOVE with him. I want to send out my love and prayers to Cameron’s family. This is a GREAT loss for all of us. God Speed. You will ALWAYS shine bright ”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?

Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!

As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?
