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?

Y-e-s…the VERY AWESOME Rebecca Herbst in a brand-new storyline for 2014 would be very nice. And, it’s something that is LONG OVERDUE.

I think Rebecca will be getting a story line as soon as Britt lies come tumbling down on her. Can’t wait.

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.

Patrick
Patrick

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 fallen in LOVE.

why not make him alive again… and dreamboat hisself to port charles… and snare love and trappings

LOL

Alexis can stare down at and god her steely resolve… and pattern her alone for the millionth time… and we’ll never stop rooting for her to get some

Linda Dowell
Linda Dowell

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.

The young kids fall immediately – the older people don’t – and don’t succeed (unless Luke’s involved lol) what’s up with that?

Charday
Charday

Less Sonny and family, more Quartermaines!!

Rose
Rose

Is it my imagination…wasn’t there Mary Mae and Edward Q with offspring? Wonder why they’ve never followed up with them?

Patrick
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
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
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.

Shay
Shay

“Sonny needs to romance a lucky Lady”……Perhaps a jailhouse fling?????? (You know who I mean…what better way to shake that decades-long Faison obsession than with a spicy prison romp ala Mr. Corinthos?) Could be “vundabar!” LOL….

Can’t stand the Sonny character. Ready for him to leave GH.

LOL… Julian can be GAY… that would be trepidation… and too HOT!

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

Shay

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

kaffe

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!!!

Linda Dowell
Linda Dowell

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
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 !!!!

Harry
Harry

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
Harry

“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.

janet
janet

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. Re-Ron does it again. makes it sound like Patprick was torn about going home to Robin, and leaving the sparkle pony .I don’t dislike Suebrina, but I want Robin to win. I didn’t hear him say he loved Robin just that he wanted his family back.! I didn’t watch all the Robin gets saved and the Scorpios get their family fight up. to see this garbage they are giving us.Plus losing Tristan. Franken Ron can think what they like but, those ratings didn’t go up because sparkle pony and her lap dog Felix were on, and it wasn’t his wonderful writing. It was Anna , Robert, Robin, Sean we never got to see get his cure. I will give Ron this ,he did let the super spies win. He also made Luke watchable lately I see his face and FF.I was SOOO looking forward to seeing Robin give her godfather Sean Donnely the cure to save him now that would have been something they could advertise.
Happy Holidays everyone.

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

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!

Patrick

The “Hatfield & McCoys”

had… Kevin Costner, Tom Berenger, and thee ultra-fine Mr. Big Love hisself… Bill Paxton…. hows that for spurs and riding the saddle

umh… GH has little itty bitty Sonny… and on par hot Julian

Looks Fabulous!!! Can’t wait!!! I hope 2014 is a better year for everyone… including the characters of PC!!!

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
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.

Patrick
Patrick

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. she was killed off… Y&R’ fault.

#3. Ava Jerome… slithered, sauntered, and sensual’ her steamy seduction… OK… exaggeration… but.. she’s relevant… and I, for one.. like the underlying current with Ava and Julian… Ava and Franco… Ava and Morgan… Ava and the Quartermaines… Ava and Silas… Ava and cat on a hot tin roof.. best Carly

AND: wrtiers! I’m over Kiki! I’m over how dull KA’ Kiki is… get it? to this day… Kiki… has dissed her mother… for the last time… Ava doesn’t need her… yet.. she’ll continue to reach out to her… as this fleshes out evenmoreso her character… it’s KA who needs her… she and dull Michael are window dressing and filler… with Sonny

Ava adds mystique and tittilation

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

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
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
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

get a life

I bet on Carly to! They need to wipe Ava off the earth/show!! I can’t stand her…

Count me in on that one too! Love Maura West in this role, but Carly is one tough bitch that I wouldn’t mess with!

Shay

Plus, Carly’s just plain bigger….”Valkyrie” indeed!!!! Someone needs to kick Ava’s butt to the curb……her lack of social graces and just plain bad manners are annoying, like the other day when she traipsed (uninvited) into the Quartermaine mansion, poured herself a drink and made herself to home. Soooo unattractive!

Phil

So glad Laura Wright is finally being given the credit she deserves!

Fire laura wright, rehire sarah brown the origional carly. Sarah is a better actress. Laura needs to be fired now.

Nemi Denise R

I like the original Caroline Leigh Benson portrayed by Sarah Joy Brown, LW over acts the role IMO.

Phil
Phil

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 will say that I like Sarah Brown as an actress though, but since I did not see the show with her on it, I simply cannot imagine anyone else playing the role. Being that Laura Wright just signed a multi-year contract that will make her the actress who has played the role the longest, I doubt that you will get your wish! Sorry to disappoint… Overacting by the way is the guy who plays Morgan and even worse TJ!

Linda Dowell
Linda Dowell

Yes, I love Sarah Joy Brown – will love her forever as Carly. It was her role, genuinely and completely hers.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

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)
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.

How about this….since Felix thinks Sappy is all that and then some, why doesn’t he just marry her and help bring up her brat? That’s not to say that Brad can’t still be part of the picture: he can move in and play “manny” then they can all be the GH version of “Modern Family!” Seriously, no other guy (especially sweet Milo!) on that show deserves to be dragged down by Sobby….just look at how she ruined poor Patrick…it will only be the same thing all over again no matter who they pair her up with….she’s an absolute albatross! As I said before, even the slovenly Car-LOS! is looking too good for her at this point…

Li

I’m ready for a good storyline for Sam and Carly! They have been such huge strong women and right now they are getting the shaft with their boring dumb stories…(I’m glad baby Danny is better!)
I just miss them and I miss the mob! Ava and Julian are great! Bring it on… Sonny is ready for a comeback! Now if Robin can come back, maybe we can tangle with Jason coming back this year! That would be great! His absence is so evident! Baby for Lulu- it’ll be fun to see how Britt plays that out and Nikolas can keep his shirt off!! Tracy and Luke can be a regular couple and let’s get rid of Felix and lab tech guy- they’re boring!

Patrick

I like the smiles and teasing repartee between Felix and Brad.

tada! Felix, Brad, and Lucas!

I’m on!

Sabrina needs to NOT be pregnant. I really don’t want them together. Patrick and Robin are an awesome couple and have awesome chemistry on screen. Sabrina and Patrick not so much.So lets see some Robin and Patrick Love!!

she misses and mourns to this day… I do.. her cousin… who was company… being their… and loving each other… these two exemplified that… true force

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 into a perfect heroine, in other words, a boring character without sufficient flaws for dramatic tension. It’s too bad because the show needs cultural diversity.

What am I looking forward to? How about more Cassadines? More Spencers? More hospital drama? I am all for that.

Judy

Looking forward to the cat fight between Ava and Carly! Now who’s the guy at the door at Maxie’s place? And I’m so happy Sabrina is pregnant with Patricks baby 🙂
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!

grandjeepgirl

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….

Passions Alum Brook Kerr Joins The Cast Of General Hospital

Casting news today has that none other than former Passions star, Brooke Kerr (Ex-Whitney Russell-Harris Crane) is set to debut in a new role on General Hospital.

According to EW.com, look for Kerr to make her first Port Charles appearance on the upcoming Thursday, March 5th installment.

Kerr will be playing a doctor, not much else is being shared as to what kind and who she may be involved with on the ABC daytime drama series.

Photo: JPI

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

Photo: ABC

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

TONIGHT: GH's Finola Hughes Directed Episode of 'Good Trouble'

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

Photo: JPI

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
