Finally! I knew they had to be casting Morgan! They’ve mentioned him enough the last few months. Hope it does well. That must be a tad bit intimidating going into scenes with such “dominate” onscreen parents. lol.

carly and sonny is your parents there are happy.
but i have news Jason morgan Quartermaine is dead

He looks like he has really SORAS’d… how old is supposed to be? He and Molly are supposed to be close in age right? He will be with Carly, Sonny, Michael, Molly, TJ and Rafe. He will probably be with Lauren when she comes on the canvas… they met at school or something. I wish it could have been Araon R again… but he is very cute! Can’t wait to see what will be happening!

He’s probably a year or two older than Molly.

Robin delivered Molly on screen in 2005. She’s super aged as it is so I don’t think it really matters at this point how old they are compared to each other.

I think not

I say 21 years old there are different like his siblings

Is it me or does this Morgan look older than Michael?

It’s probably how this shot was lit, but they wouldn’t cast someone older than Chad Duell.

He looks like an 18yr or so..
Anyone with teen aged sons can see that 🙂

He looks too old and kind of dumb! I wish they would have killed him off ! I am going to take GH off of record for the summer and just enjoy catching up in the fall! It has just gotten flat with bringing back all the old characters! And then playing up the barely teenagers!! Are freakin monkeys writing these scripts!

richard

Another one of Sonny’s kids??? I’d rather them recast Lucas Jones and pair him with Felix!!!!!

Ashlee

Gross!!

Kelly

Why is that gross? It’s about time GH did a proper same-sex love story like Days is currently doing.

richard
richard

Why is that gross???? Evolve with the rest of daytime, this is 2013 🙂

Debbie
Debbie

Eventually the writers will pair Felix with someone. Felix is looking for a dating relationship, even pining over straight men ( such as Milo ) that he knows deep down inside can never be.

Mia

TG Morgan was basically raise by Jax not Sonny.

MK

The first (and Good) actor who played Morgan, looked like he would be Gay. Hoping they continue with that route. Imagine Sonny and Carly having to deal with this? If Bobbie had issues with Lucas, Sonny certainly will. He is still too young for Felix, but may Lucas will come home and mentor his cousin and hook up Felix in the process?

Mia
Mia

Felix just may get a love interest in the form of Lucas Jones, Bobbie & Tony’s son, I hope so I lime Felix. 🙂

*like not lime… omg

“looked like he would be gay” what does that even mean??????
do people from the gay community have a certain look???? you need to stop making obnoxious comments like that…………..

kara anderson

I whated jax to be his father not sonny

kara anderson
kara anderson

yes

GB

ideally, it would be a love interest for felix. would be interesting to see sonny deal with that. but he’s probably too young for him.

i don’t think so – i read that tptb are bringing back lucas jones for felix…………

kara anderson

good idea

kara anderson

no

jimh

He’ll be the school bully that picks on Rafe. Since some gh fans say Ron C. copies stories from his OLTL days…i had to predict the possible bully storyline before they did. lol

Mia
Mia

I highly doubt that Morgan comes on as a bully he wasn’t around Sonny or Jason that much growing up. Unless it’s something he picked up on in military school I don’t see it happening.

jimh
jimh

It was just a guess…not really sure what theyll do with him…i said the bully suggestion because OLTL and some GH fans have complain in the past that a few RCs GH stories are similiar to some of the stories hes done on OLTL!

jimh
jimh

You dont have to be around someone like Sonny or Jason to turn into a bully…ive seen all sorts of bullies who act that way for various reasons and you it doesnt matter if you come from a good or bad family. Some teens just like to pick on someone because they just want attention and think its cool to do so. They might do out of jealousy or for no reason at all. There are all kinds! But i doubt RC will do another one but you never know!

kara anderson
kara anderson

mia
you are wrong

kara anderson
kara anderson

he will not bullying rafe

jimh
jimh

I only wrote the bully comment because some fans in the past have complain that some of RCs storylines for gh are recycled from his writings for OLTL…

tarlyfan

He looks a lot younger than Chad Duel, probably 4-5 years. I wonder if he would embrace Sonny’s mob lifestyle or Jax’s corporate lifestyle. On second thought, Guza is gone so Morgan would probably a good kid.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I think he would be more into Jax’s corporate world…but then if he is rebelling – it could be the mob. He does have Sonny’s blood coursing through his veins after all…

Mia
Mia

FV got rid of the mob so…

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I know what you’re saying Mia…but as long as Sonny is still on the show – the mob is still there. We may not hear about it or see it as often, but it isn’t completely gone.

Morgan will be gay. new boyfriend for felix. Felix needs a boyfriend. lol.

Ashlee

Gross! You people are disgusting!! Is this a room full of NAMBLA supporters or what?? Morgan is a child of 15 or 16. And…NOT GAY! How disgusting to suggest pairing a straight child with a grown effeminate creeper type nurse!

Robbyrob
Robbyrob

Wow Ashlee….you on the other hand are super GROSS!!! You seem to have a chick fil lay burger up your hind quarters. So a grown male nurse is a creeper?? What century are you from and you actually comment like this on Michael Fairmans site? Something tells me Dr. Phil would have a field day with your comments alone. Your comments are very scary and they say more about you than I. I’m confident in my skin but cannot say the same for you. You sound very threatened…over what I don’t know….oh, yeah….an effeminate gay man. Just curious but how would you know about NAMBLA????

Kelly
Kelly

Ashlee – you need to get a life and stop being so homophobic. There’s nothing “gross” about having a gay themed love story. Granted, Morgan may be under 18 when he comes on so it may not be appropriate for him to be paired up with Felix – because of his age not due to his sexual orientation. I for one would love to see Morgan be gay and having to deal with coming out.

matthew

I bet Ashlee is really Melissa Reeves trolling this site. Screw you and your hate chicken that Robbyrob mentioned Melissa. And I pray to god you choke on your waffle fries!

Are there no gay soaps?! Not to be rude I don’t care what people do or who they do it with but I have been watching GH since I was born and to have to fast forward through any more then I should just give this up or try to get into gay love scenes! Sorry I do get grossed out no to mention I don’t want to get into it with my young kids. I am not going to watch it just to be a PC Zombie! I guess it is time for me to grow up and get a new hobby! Sucks everyone I know knows GH is my obsession.

Ashlee

I am SO happy that GH is finally presenting a true and accurate depiction of gays through the characters of Felix and Brad. It‘s about time! 🙂

I am going like to like Morgan..
I think having Sonny and Carly with their other son will be new and exciting..
After all, AJ has claimed Michael as his, so yah Sonny should have his other son with him it’s only fair ..

Finally! Looking forward to Morgan coming home. And welcome to PC, Bryan Craig.

He DOES look like he could be Sonny’s kid

bj

I’m looking forward to Morgan coming home. I hope they don’t have him come back as a trouble maker. Morgan was always the child with a definite sense of right and wrong, and a good moral compass. He’s the one I thought could grow up to be a lawyer and give Sonny grief about his lifestyle. I hope they don’t give him a complete personality change.

I think having gone to military school he should have a good sense of self discipline and show leadership traits. PLEASE don’t have him come back as a punk with attitude.

JustSaying

I foresee him lasting for a year just like Kristina. Then he’ll be gone. I can’t possibly think of a good storyline for him.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

That is why you aren’t a writer.

JustSaying
JustSaying

Wait and see. He’ll be out because Michael is the “golden boy” and Molly is the “golden girl”. Have you noticed they haven’t written anything for Kristina lately? Not even for the Nurses Ball, and yet Molly was there.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

Yeah, because they let the actress playing Kristina go. We will wait and see. There are MANY story lines I can think of – too bad if you can’t.

Tandy
Tandy

I am with just saying on this character not lasting! Maybe he would be a better writer than what GH has now; simply for passing on boring pointless storylines that will go nowhere or just drop an undeveloped character off because poor writing/acting! The only thing they have done right lately is bring Nick back with less shirts!

Jeff

Ashlee calm down! Some people in life are gay and aren’t going anywhere. Just because you are discriminating doesn’t mean the majority of people watching soaps are.!! If you want good wholesome right wing Republican entertainment then watch a televangelist, not day time soaps!!

Kelly

Amen to that!

Ashlee

Last time I checked, free speech was still legal. Amen to THAT!

John G
John G

Why do people always associate their hate with free speech? Free speech does not give you the right to be malicious to people. That is your own self-serving agenda created from either your ignorance, upbringing, own since of self importance or all of the above. But what it is not is a constitutional right to be an @sshole.

Ashlee
Ashlee

I‘m very curious about this. So…I am a hateful, disgusting, gross, bigoted, self-serving, ignorant asshole because I do NOT approve of older men sodomozing young children. I have not insulted anyone, and I am the one who has been viciously attacked on here. So…ANY opinion is fine unless it differs from yours?? So much for your so-called tolerance, understanding, kindness, and acceptance, hey? WOW! I CAN‘T EXPRESS a perfectly valid opinion on here without being insulted and called every name in the book. It is YOU who are the hateful, closed-minded ones.

Ashlee
Ashlee

This is not a personal venting line. Michael Fairman works too hard and produces an awesome site. You are more than welcome to e-mail me directly but let‘s not disturb Michael‘s soap site anymore. I will continue to post my opinions about ALL things soap related and I just hope no one chooses to make it personal anymore.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

Ashlee you HAVE insulted almost everyone here. YOU said, “Gross! You people are disgusting!! Is this a room full of NAMBLA supporters or what?? Morgan is a child of 15 or 16. And…NOT GAY! How disgusting to suggest pairing a straight child with a grown effeminate creeper type nurse!”

Morgan is AT LEAST 15 or 16, it is very possible they will age him some to make him 18. And you have no idea whether or not Morgan is gay! If he is, so what? Then you call Felix an effeminate creeper type – what? You must think all gay men are effeminate, even though they are not. You also think he is a creep, I have no idea why. Do you think all gay men are creeps?, because that is what it sounds like. So you called me disgusting and dissed all gay men. Sorry that IS insulting.

If this is too personal for you, oh well. You posted it.

Joshua

There have been too many actors and actresses in the roles of Morgan, Michael and Kristina over the past three years (8? 9?), that I can’t invest in this.

Sure as the world, 8 months into this kid playing Morgan, the show will fire him just like they did Lindsey Morgan. Just when we were beginning to like her as Kristina.

Charday
Charday

Maybe Morgan and Rafe will be boyfriends. That would be cool.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

Except that Rafe obviously likes Molly…

Ashlee
Ashlee

I really like Michael now that he is now longer a murderer-in-training. I love the relationship he has with AJ and love that he is for all intents and purposes out of Sonny‘s orbit. Him and Starr became a lovely couple and I hope they are re-paired when Kristen Alderson comes back as Nu Whoever. I wish the new youngster playing Morgan all the best. I hope they do not turn him into a Sonny mini-me. I hope he can hang with Molly and TJ and Rafe and that set and they can just be depicted as normal teens. Are there any new spoilers on the new roles the OLTL contingent will play?

tarlyfan

rumors that ME will be Mark Clay, brother of Stephen. KA will be Serena Baldwin. RoHo will be either Alexander Cassadine/Quartermaine, son of Alexandria Quartermaine and Tony Cassadine… or Eric Quartermaine Jr, son of Jimmy Lee Holt.

Gloria E

tarlyfan? did u read about who the oltl three would be coming back as cuz it sounds very interesting..I knew Frank & Ron would come up with some exciting ideas..

Ashlee
Ashlee

Cool! Thanks Tarly. I had heard Kristen may be Serena. That makes historical sense definitely. I would love if this show would finally address Jimmy Lee Holt. My aunt had the serious hots for him when I was a kid. No regime has cared to deal with him…he could have 6 kids by now. I think Roger is a little old to be Jimmy Lee‘s son though, no? Roger is in his 40‘s. I guess that doesn‘t mean much. Cady McClain is 43 in real life but will be playing at least a 60 year old in the AMC reboot…as her grandson is now 17. Lol. Anything can happen on soaps. I would like to see Rog as more of a hero. He has played the same character for so long…he played Todd on OLTL, then Todd oops I mean Paul Ryan on ATWT then Todd on GH. Whoever Michael plays, I hope it is not brooding/monotone like McBain. Ideally, I wish they dcould be the originals. This will effectively end any future GH/OLTL crossovers and that is a shame. I have always loved watching when soap worlds collide. I think it would be beyond cool if ABC or Prospect Park Could bring characters from long defunct shows like Ryan‘s Hope or Edge of Night or Loving. That would be awesome, and I dont understand why there is such a reluctance to do things like that.

I agree. We don’t have a lot of mob and I hope they never go back there. The Morgan before the last one was very likable and he should return. Enough gay/not gay. felix can be funny but, he is also over the top .I hope they write these teens better than they did OLTL. those teens were not likable especially Jack. he was a brat. Summers coming. lets have a story about the real teens they are mostly young teens.so stay there. We know jealousy rules, and lets have more fun. Another girl is needed. Plus we need more romance. We need love stories remember*love in the afternoon*. No more murder in the afternoon. No more six gun killers no more MOB.
Plus why can’t Rafe be the Q heir he looks a lot like AJ.

CTwildheart

Welcome to Port Charles Bryan! Looking forward to seeing what story they bring for you. And I don’t care if it is as a rebellious kid, a military hopeful, a gay teen, a corporate lackey, a bully or a Broadway hopeful. 🙂

I’m happy that Morgan is returning! It’s been far too long for Morgan to be gone from the canvas; how long does schooling last? No summer vacations? This could turn into a very juicy storyline!

How about we wait and see?

And when did ‘gay’ become such a big deal? It is what it is. Part of ONE LIFE. Hence, it is part of the LIVES be they TURNing, BOLD & BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG & RESTLESS, CHILDREN, or in a HOSPITAL.

Gay people are part of all people. Hello?!?!

I have no problem but I don’t want to watch just like I don’t watch fishing shows or someone gutting a deer, thug life shows, pregnant and a teenager shows, the chew and other cooking shows, anything to do with celebrities lives, ect. As you can see there is quite a bit of crap on tv that I refuse to watch! If someone is grossed out by two men or two women kissing why do they have to be a BAD PERSON or wrong! Or is they should just have to watch it enough so that they aren’t grossed out! I have been watching GH forever and already fast forward through alot of it during in a borings storylines. I am not PC and don’ t think someone should have to be someone else so that they don’t offend someone else. Just be polite and respect others even if you disagree! I usually watch GH while I am doing laundry, my baby is asleep, and my husband is working. It’s always been something I enjoy but if It starts to change into storylines that is a turn off to me then it isn’t worth it to me. Then I won’t watch anymore. They will write the stories to entertain who is watching. I will find something that appeals to me. Being “gay” doesn’t “bother me” being beat over the head with the “gay” hammer bothers me! Don’t be heterophobic! Don’t give your opinion if you can’t respect someone else’s.

Mel

I’m excited to have Morgan back! But I wouldn’t be surprised if he got mixed up in Sonny’s world. He was shipped off to military school, barely mentioned again by his parents or his brothers, even Jax forgot about that kid and he was more a father to him than Sonny… He’ll probably come back angry and raise hell.

Can someone tell me if Venesa Marcil’s run is up on General Hospital. I thought she was hanging around, for awhile…….. not permanently, but for a little while. She appeared at just after April 1st, and last aired Friday April 19th. I don’t call that hanging around for awhile…..

Anyone know anything.

But they said Jax was hanging around, and he hasn’t been seen, only but to usher Brenda back in Port Charles and thus dump her.

Anyone know anything.

There has been talk about being beaten over the head with same-sex storylines, but compared to the amount of male-female love scenes, there are hardly any. You don’t have to be PC but you are being close-minde. We live in a world of diversity and soaps are realistically trying to portray that diversity. If it bothers you so much, you probably shouldn’t be watching these soaps and you should probably move to your own deserted island.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Should Drew Get The Flash Drive Back, But Lose The Last Five Years Of His Life In Doing So?

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) is faced with a dilemma that could change the course of his life forever.  It all comes down to DA Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), and her vendetta against Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), and how she is leveraging her possession of the flash drive that holds all of Drew’s memories and the key to his past.

In a confrontation at the Metro Court, Drew comes over to talk to Margaux, where he says he is not sure why he hasn’t taken it upon himself to turn her into the cops.  She adamantly points out that she is an attorney, and that he has no evidence that could be used against her in a court of law.  While she goes on about making Sonny pay for what he did to her father, she tries to get Drew to come along with her in her vendetta.  Drew refuses, not because of Sonny or Jason (Steve Burton), but he does not want to do this to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and have Danny be without his father.

Drew then stands up to her and tells he he knows she has been manipulating him for months. Even knowing she has the key to his life with the flashdrive that hold all of his missing years, Drew tells Margaux that she can hold this over his head, but even if he had the flashdrive there is a chance that the procedure to restore his memories could go wrong, and the sad fact that in doing the procedure, he will definitely lose the last five years of his life and all of those memories with Sam and more.  He says to Margaux that those memories mean everything to him.

A confident and irritated Marqaux tells him she is sure he will want the flash drive one day and that he knows her terms if she was to give it to him – helping her bring down Sonny and Jason for the murder of her father.   Drew is left with a difficult decision, while Margaux gets into an elevator and begins to cry over wanting to avenge her father’s death.  But little does she know, that evidence could prove that he was not the man she thinks he was.

So this begs the question to GH fans: Would you like to see Drew retrieve all of his memories as Andrew Cain, at the cost of losing the last five year of his life since being in Port Charles …  or should Drew leave his mind and memories alone and just go forward keeping the last five years in tact, and foregoing what other important history in his life that he may need to know now, or in the future?

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!

For archived and past episodes of Soap Nation Live, you can go to the official show page on Spreaker.com here.
