Exactly what is General Hospital’s Daytime Emmy winning Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) doing in this picture?  Well, while we will have to wait till her Castle episode entitled “Significant Others”  airs on January 7th to truly find out,  soapers can weigh in and caption this photo in the comment section below!

In the meantime, here is a preview teaser of the upcoming episode from ABC which guest stars Nancy and and another soap fan favorite, Jack Wagner:  When a powerful divorce attorney who only represented women is murdered, Castle and Beckett are confronted with a plethora of angry ex-husbands, any one of whom could be the murderer.  Meanwhile, Castle’s ex-wife (Darby Stanchfield, “Scandal,” as Meredith) moves into the loft to take care of Alexis while she recovers from Mono, and to make matters worse, Beckett is also forced to move in while her apartment is being fumigated, causing tension, humor and more than a little awkwardness, on “Castle,” Monday January 7(10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Also, Jack Wagner (Melrose Place, GH and B&B) guest stars as a pro golfer whose career went down in flames after a nasty divorce scandal, and Nancy Lee Grahn (General Hospital) guests as a wealthy divorcee caught in a “War of the Roses”-like struggle with her ex-husband.

Nope to castle and nathan fillion. it’s unappetizing when actors move up the ladder and then diss their former jobs thru fake mockery of themselves like fillion has done. definitely a no to fillion after being on josh whedon’s whitewashing nightmare “firefly” w/c got axed after season 1! that show had no Asian american actors even if the storyline was abt a future w/c fused Asian and western cultures! whedon hired a white actor to portray the only Asian american character! Simon Tam was portrayed by white actor sean maher and thus the only Asian american role was whitewashed! Stupid sean maher is openly gay and must have experienced homophobia and yet he took a role away from Asian american actors and thus continued hollywood’s practice of openly discriminating against Asian americans. “firefly” was one of the many projects w/c depicts racism towards Asian americans thru hollywood’s displacement fantasy against Asian americans. Typical of hollywood to appropriate from Asian american cultures yet not have an Asian american characters portrayed by Asian american actors. After firefly: it’s a No to anything w/ nathan fillion.

Why would Nathan have anything to do with casting the shows he is on? Get a grip on reality and then come back at us. If you feel so strongly about the issue, why don’t you start your own online news page and see how many hits you can get.

gees, what show are you watching.???? Castle is a great fun show to watch. And I started watching because Nathan Fillion was from OLTL. I think there’s another guy that used to be on OLTL too, and then the gal that plays Kate, I had just seen her in another fun movie in the Librarian series with another favorite guy, Noah Wyle, where she played a French songstress/vampire.

I didn’t get to see Firefly, saw him in Saving Private Ryan, but Nathan will always be Joey Buchanon to me.

and I like when they put soap stars on other shows – ABC has had a lot of very talented actors who have been on or are still on soaps… why not cross them over into other ABC shows. It’s a great pool of talent to use!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
