Spinelli is back in action starting towards the end of next week on ABC’s General Hospital.  Look for the tech wiz and private investigator played by Bradford Anderson, to be back on the scene to help solve some of the new mysteries causing havoc in the lives of the residents of Port Charles.

With Spinelli’s longtime bud Jason (Billy Miller) in serious hot water with the law, after Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) went out the window at Wyndemere, appeared bloodied on the rocks, and then the body disappeared, and Jason was at the scene of the crime at the perfect time, might he help clear his name?  Or, could Spinelli be helping out with the mystery deaths at GH, or help Carly (Laura Wright) get to the bottom of whose kidney her daughter, Josslyn actually has?

Looking forward to another return by Anderson?  What mystery will he help solve? Comment below!

Was never a huge Spinelli fan. He’s a likeable enough character but I would be more excited to see more of Laura, Bobby, Lucy, Mac, Felicia, Monica or Scorpio. More excited about Jax coming back than Spinelli.

ALWAYS more of Laura (Genie Francis is a gem, a professional, and an icon). Should be treated with respect and given the major story line she deserves–and has deserved all along.

Never say “everyone” k/Kay. I and many others like Spinelli. And I’m not sure what you mean by “his acting.” Do you mean you don’t like Bradford? He plays the quirkiness of the character; he “made” Spinelli the endearing, good-hearted, super-smart, loyal friend, father, boyfriend, sleuth that he is. With that said, of course we all have our own opinions of characters and if you don’t like him that’s cool too. But “everyone” never agrees on anything! 😉

Ok I get it everybody’s loves Spinelli! It was hard for me as a viewer to keep up with his quirks it was nothing personal against the actor! Next time I will say I and not assume everyone agrees with me! Now I hope I made everybody happy! But is he going to be working with KS or the replacement! I will also add this he did have chemistry with SB but don’t hold your breath on Billy Miller someone gave that guy some sleeping pills I am very disappointed in his acting of late ! But only my opinion!!!

No need to get upset K/KAY. We were just giving our opinion also. While, I do love Spinelli I have to agree with you on the chemistry with Billy Miller. I don’t see it with them. Bradford and Steve on the other hand go hand in hand. They have magic. I have actually seen Port Chuck, and was watching them perform and turned to my friend and said that’s the real Spinelli and Jason. I guess because they are great friends off screen it showed on screen

Spinelli to the rescue! Yaaaaaaaaaay!
Once we get him, let’s keep him. Jason needs his friend, Carly does too. Maxie needs someone to focus her on what’s important so she can stop behaving so stupidly and obsessing over a wedding that won’t even happen.

Glad to see Spinelli back. He’s always been buds with Jason and Sam and no matter which mystery he’ll be working on, he usually is the one who reveals the strange little anomaly that helps to solve a mystery. Will be glad to see him back for however long!

So glad Spin is coming back and he will know that Jason actually recognizes him. He will help Jason clear his name as he has saved him many times before… Would love for Bradford to stay and Danny could have his godfather Spin around all the time along with Georgie…. Really looking forward to his return….

I am thrilled to have him back. love this character. Some newer viewers don’t know how special he really is but for this long time viewer Spinelli is a dear beloved character and I have watched him from the day he started on GH. No one else could play him either. Bradford Anderson is the best.

Love Brad, Spinelli is my favorite GH character. Always joyous for me when he returns. Hope he stays for more than 2 seconds this time. I hate when he makes these brief cameo appearances. Hope he brings the baby!

I’d rather bleed out of my eyes that watch this character interact with anyone on GH, especially the PC mobsters and mobster-sympathizers. Time to polish off the FF button.

Take care.

I’m so glad he is returning! Bradford is a fine actor! Also, the Spin/Jasson bromance was excellent. Loved those two working together! If GH had two brain cells they’d give Bradford contract!!

I like spinelli’s querkiness. Sine Jason is trying to stay straight perhaps spinelli can work with the pcpd like Kevin does on Y&R, as a consultant. From what I hear Ellie is not in tow. With KS off I guess we will not see Georgie.

Timmm

Never liked this goofball! It was cute when he was first on but him and Maxie . But now? NO WAY! Spin is just like Sabrina, Ugly Betty with Patrick, cute, but after that, ANNOYING!

I love Spinelli! Yes, he is weird and quirky, but that is part of the character’s charm. I’m enjoying Bradford Anderson popping in and out of Port Charles, but I wouldn’t be opposed to a longer stay.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
