I didn’t like the other Michael. .. .not even a little and not from day one. So, I was/am thrilled at the recast.

If he can act at all, I will approve.

Sadly enough- he can’t act…at least not in a major role as a bad boy. He most definitely has no ability to seem tough and instead seems waaaay too vulnerable for a believable Corrinthos/mobster family member. We already have Morgan for that role.Even though I didn’t think I was a fan of Drew, I have come to realize he was the EXACT fit for the role and once again we are expected to just take the change and not have a say in the show we watch.

Really, how can you make such a judgement from the very very limiited amount of air time he has had this week? In addition, he has not had to “act” in any real sense. IMO, maybe after being exposed to a few weeks of the new Michael we will all be able to make a more informed opinion. . . .any opinion now, IMO, is not only rash, but exposes a bias that, frankly, will never be shook. Clearly, you liked the last Michael, and that is all well and fine, its a preference. . . .an opinion, but to… Read more »

I don’t feel his look fits the role. I loved Drew and I would love for him to come back! Or someone that fit in better!!! I have not watched since he has been on. So many I will like him once I see him in action, but I don’t think so!

There was areason he was on The Suite Life and other Disney shows…because that is the type of acting he does! Give him a supporting role as someone’s boyfirend, not a lead role and expect him to act or even look tough.

This “new” michael is this side of terrible. He is totally wrong for this role; I say pay Drew what he wants and get him back. I am already bored just watching this actor; if I wanted mediocrity I would watch the show this kid came from. I expect a higher quality of performance from GH.

This has to be the worst decision GH has made since replacing Carly with Jenny woman, This role does not fit this fit him at all.

I just do not feel MC in Chad Duell. He needs a makeover, especially getting rid of that dorky Wizards of Waverly Place haircut. Although I am sure he is nice this young man seems completely out of his element on GH. And again, that haircut turns me off but I guess we have no choice but to give him a chance.

Terrible choice..this replacement is not nearly as good an actor…WHY did GH let Drew Garrett go?? Asking too much money?? Really too bad..as Drew was very good.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
