As 2013 comes to a close and we are just a week away from the New Year, ABC has released a brand new promo for General Hospital that informs the viewer that there is plenty of drama ahead!

First, Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) are seen cozy in bed, what does the future hold for this reunited couple?   The mob war continues as Sonny (Maurice Benard) warns his son Morgan (Bryan Craig) that a target is on his back as Julian (William deVry) continues his plans to take down the Corinthos clan by any means possible!

And look for catfights galore as Ava (Maura West) gives a very stern warning to Carly (Laura Wright) stating: “I will make it a mission in my life to wipe you off the planet!”  Oh my!  Nothing like seeing two of daytime’s strongest female characters and performers going at it in the New Year!

Watch the latest promo for General Hospital! Then, our very insightful soap fans whom we love, look into your crystal ball and tell us what you think will go down in Port Charles in 2014?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !! My big wish – is that they make Julian emotionally review his life as he falls for Alexis and his kids. Please, Please, don’t make Alexis like another bad guy. I can’t take that anymore! It’s SO annoying and demeans her intelligence. Very misogynistic. Pass the word lol………..please.

LOL. OK you got your turn. Alexis can advertise frigid dare and we’ll look the other way… LOL isn’t she the type of character… and god love her… so do I… tough as nails.. smart as a whip… but… when it comes to lovelorn…. she flies the coop faster then the menfolk you know.. honestly… the last “man” on GH to stir desire… lust.. and abandon? Joe Scully, 3rd LOL… I was so ooh la la.. for him and the women in port charles… I was giddy over the top.. the moon as it were.. that Traci coulda woulda shoulda… Read more »

I loved Joe Scully too – I was so sad when they offed him. And he was great w/Traci, you are correct.

Yes, they should bring him back!!!

Sigh.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

some one… please agree with me….

that.. it’s rather embarrassing… to watch Sonny any more… not for lack of trying… they steered away from mob story… and it was even more painful to watch Sonny… cringe worthy… he’s become filler… it’s back to the mob.

it’s painfully obvious… that they go this route.. to give Maurice Benard, Sonny, something to act… i’m as tired as Sonny after he machismo’ his mob boss tough guy routine

oye! vexed at how lame and dull this part of the GH canvas has been

Elizabeth
Guest
Elizabeth

I wish Sonny would go back to the cool persona he had in his hey day of the mid 1990’s…. remember after the war with Joe Scully Sr. was won and Sonny guaranteed that Luke’s club was no longer in danger because he was going to run his territory with “brains, not guns.” He was totally mellow and sexy, somehow now he is so often a parody of himself. Sad really.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

“…he is so often a parody of himself.”

you said it perfectly. unfortunately, for his fan base… and I’m still hanging in

He really needs a good woman by his side.

the letting go of Kelly Sullivan has left a gaping “whole” for the show in itself… and for the actor Maurice Benard. She did it all.

the only other actress that comes to mind… and no… it’s not Brenda… but…
Dahlia Salem, ex-Claire Walsh,GH… she was excellent as a Carlino in Another World…

Sonny needs to romance a lucky Lady

I don’t see it with Olivia.

why not? he was in hiding… as it were… witness protection program’ming… the WSB gives him a face lift… and he works his bodacious bod out…

and so what… if he’s kissed Carly…

Carly wants adulation… and promiscuity from every one… Julian is bigger than her.

so her sired a kid a million years ago….

stretch your wings… big hot Julian… we love you

Well, I suppose Julian could always just “straddle the fence” and keep everyone wondering…..including himself perhaps?????

I think it is a good ideal to make him gay. Will he the first father to be gay on
A soap??

And how will Alexis react to this?
What will Sam and Lucas say?

I think RC miss the mark with that sceniro…..
He still can make the character gay if he wanted too!!!

But I think he kissed Carly and+ he had a baby with Luas mother and Alexis!!

But I don’t care for Sonny!!!

But do he have a girlfriend now…no

That will be interesting!!!

Nah, I want him hotter than all hell for Alexis. I love William DeVry – and I want him HOT in my world lol. Some other great looking muscle bound guy can come on and be gay..just not my Julian. What a horrible name.

Best wishes for a great 2014, Michael and ALL..

Looking forward to Carly and Ava facing off!!

Like the mob action is back, even tho there really is no longer mobs, just two gansta families fighting for territory..

The Corinthos clan and the Jerome clan fighting much like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s.. (not mobs)

Looking forward to Patrick and Sabrina reuniting..

A great 2014 coming our way from GH !!!!

Ewww…..Patrick and Sparkle Pony were an un mitigated disaster. Patrick always looked like the trapped wild animal willing to chew off a limb in order to get away from that perky little trap. They has no chemistry, there was no build up to their “romance” and subsequent heart break thus forth most fans are really rooting for Patrick and Robin to stay together. Of course, TM is pregnant in real life and knowing how creatively limited Ron is, he will probably not only have Patrick torn between two women, but torn between two children–oh yawn.

Harry
Guest

“Like that the mob action is back, even tho there really is no mobs; just two gangsta families fighting for territory.” Then, “The Corinthos clan and the Jerome clan fighting much like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s (not mob). ” Are you listening to yourself? Your self cancelling, oxymoronic phrasing is ridiculous. If it walks like a mobster, acts like a mobster, then it is a MOBSTER! Yes, Virginia, there is a mob in Port Charles and the ghost of Christmas past (Guza) is back.

Harry you hit the nail on the head twice. the mobs times 2. and Right now I dislike Patrick so much for watching Robin fight her way back to her family tortures pain needles and threats, when he didn’t stay with his wife , He was torn,the man who couldn’t get the words I DO out of his mouth YUCK.I don’t care if he is in the middle of the Hatfields and the Mc Coys mob war.

I see 3 men in the Corinthos mob, 3 is not a mob..
Same goes for the Jerome’s ..
Just near retired leftovers of a GH mob from back in day..

The 2 fighting families are more like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s than a mob lol ..
the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s had enough men to be a mob, way more than the Corinthos 3 and the Jerome 3, actually ..

Anyways! loved the shoot out and looking forward to more from the 6 mobsters lol ..

Dan
Guest

This is the first time in months that I recall the mob being featured front and center on the show, and I don’t mind it at all. When it was featured all day every day back in the Phelps/Guza era, that I didn’t like. But I think the current regime has found a nice balance. I’m enjoying the show more now than I have in years. Hope Frank, Ron and company keep up the great work in 2014!

Maura VS. Laura is one battle I’ve been dying to see on this show. Two of the show’s strongest actresses and two of the strongest in the whole medium. I am so Team Ava, though!

Paul

I agree Scott, this should be a great battle. I was never familiar with Maura other than reading about her. I liked her almost immediately on GH. She seems to be enjoying playing her character also which makes it more fun for the audience.

Maura West; on General Hospital, has finally caught my attention. #1. As the world Turns… Carly… 2 time emmy winner… deserved those accolades… I just had a hard time.. with Carly and Rosanna… debut on the show… as the Snyder farm family was disintegrating and obliterated.. so.. hence.. I didn’t take a true liking to her… be that as it may… I watched ATWT to the very last day… #2. Dianne… on Y&R. Nothing to say… even she will admit… it’s all a blur… and not worth the effort… she was wasted and coulda woulda shoulda had something with Nick.… Read more »

I think her enjoying Ava is what makes her so intriguing to watch. You’re watching an actress excel in her craft in a role she loves playing. Ava is the boss bitch in Port Charles, and I can’t wait to see everyone bowing down to her power.

Gina

Same here! I wasn’t sure about Ava at first but Maura has made me a believer. She and Julian are a fantastic duo and an epic showdown with Carly is just what the doctor ordered. These two women will kill it!!

I couldn’t stand Maura’s version of Carley on world turns.hated her she ate the show. Ava she is ok I would love to see her win over Carley. actually she already has. Carley got Franco that’s a lose lose situation/. He set her son up to get raped.Of course Carley also set her other kids to get hurt by Sonny so she is batting a thousand.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

for the love of god… for how revered.. “carly” is… she’s not batting a thousand… in my book…

yes.. I whole heartedly agree with you… with regard to her children… she’s in a losing battle.

when was the last time.. Carly did any thing ???? of interest.. besides hit the sheets in all the room of the metro court? she uses that room key.. more than her guests… she declares it’s her right… well piss off Carly

Plus, Carly’s just plain bigger….”Valkyrie” indeed!!!!

Soooo unattractive!

I disagree about overacting! I cannot comment on the original Carly as I didn’t watch GH at the time that she was on the show. I was an avid GL fan and liked Laura Wright as Cassie, but love her even more here as Carly in GH! Easily one of my favorites…and her chemistry with Roger Howarth is unmatched by anyone except maybe Kelly Monaco and Michael Easton!

I don’t have anything against Laura Wright – I can see that she is a good actor. I just think she is SO miscast for the role of Carly. Not right physically, no chemistry or believability in any scenes with Jackie Zeman. And the crap with Franco is just appalling.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Sorry, but Laura IS Carly. I’d rather see SJB back as Claudia if anything. But I don’t see a GH return for her, nor do I see Laura leaving a role that is rightfully her’s. She has portrayed it the longest and strongest.

I am not looking forward to anything mob related, especially with Sonny Corinthos front and center. I also think the show is missing a great story opportunity by reuniting Patrick and Robin. I think viewers, myself included naturally, would rather see Robin struggle to move on with her life than see Sabrina move forward without her prince charming. No matter how many scenes Sabrina is featured in, she is NOT central to the show. Robin is a heritage character who grew up on the show and deserves A-Line stories, especially after her resurrection. Sabrina, from her first appearance, was molded… Read more »

Since Robyn doesn’t want a baby now, hopefully Patrick will go back to Sabrina where he belongs and Robyn can go on her merry away 🙂 Lulu must be pregnant! But when will the news come out the Britts baby is Dante and Lulu’s? Cheers! Looking forward to 2014 of GH! Happy New Years to all!

Sabrina is not key to the central show yet…but will be if her pregnancy story line plays out with Patrick as the father. I think he will go back with Sabrina and raise their baby together. Currently, I don’t think there are an “stable” couples on the show. Patrick and Sabrina have potential to be a couple of stability. To me, there should be at least one couple on the show that would be considered stable. Sabrina was having a sobering and maturing impact on Patrick before Robin came back.

We’ll see happens….

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Soap fans know these actors very well.  Kanan, Brown, Hennesy and Rogers have all, or are presently appearing, on General Hospital.  B&B fans recognize Torkilden, Horsford, Moss, and Schofield along with Kanan from their work on the CBS Daytime drama.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.

You can check out the full Studio City cast interview below.  Then let us know, have you checked out the series? What have been your favorite moments and performances in it? Let us know in the comment section.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

Courtesy/ABC

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
