Well, hopefully they’ll give poor Dominic a better sendoff after this brief run. Lulu continues to be a bore and a complete joke as “ACE Reporter on the Job”. Christiane Amanpour she isn’t. Maybe this will liven things up.

His “sendoff” was fine, honestly. It was a way to exit the character, to both allow Zamprogna the opportunity to return in any capacity, or for them to recast down the line.

00oohhh geez! I loved Dante but- I did notice he was gone, Dante was so deep in the background that well…… Anyways- I hope that during the one day he will be back that is to take Lulu with him 🙂 I think that would be a good thing, yes! no Lulu would be good and they can walk into the sunset together and- take her mother with them 🙂 GH doesn’t have one good exciting intriguing story going on, not one- I, as many have heard there will be a Halloween murder and I believe it is more than… Read more »

Who is Sasha’s friend, su? What did I miss?
I never believed Sasha her to be Nina’s. It’s Kiki!!
The new character ( Willow?) , the teacher, is another possibility.

I think Willow is Baby Wiley’s birth mother, She’s in grief counseling Because she gave him up for adoption, not yet knowing he died. She and Michael will bond over their loses’ and then when it is discovered that Jonah is alive, they will become a happy family. Plausible?

Now about Sasha. Is she somehow connected to the long forgotten Claudette?

WOW, Nora!! Great thinking!!….. love it. Makes so much sense, on both counts. I’m impressed!!

Hi Celia 🙂
I should have used ”assume”
I think Sasha’ has a friend/whoever that she is using the DNA to work her con into the Big money as being Nina’s daughter.
hmm that story is boring, sigh..

0oooh! I love the Britch! she is a badly needed breath of fresh air, for sure.
I’d like to have her and Peter bond and give us some excitement- they do hold the DNA of devil blood LOL.
I’d love Britt and Brad and Felix to hang out, again.
I can only hope she will be staying, but most likely not 🙁

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! BOOOO BOOOOOOO!!

Hey, SuzieQ…I agree with you about Sasha. ‘Something is rotten in the state” of NY ( PC). LOL. Could the friend be the school-teacher who was parked in the garage illegaly?Hmmmm. What is the reason? Money? Nina is an heiress, afterall. I am not too happy with Peter…..I haven’t accepted him into the “fold” yet. But, as with Kiki, I may change my mind. So far—-it’s a big, fat NO. Interact with Britt? Hmmm, I don’t know. He is such a dud compared to “Don’t mess with me”, Britt. And, yes!! Absolutely–Go, Britt, Brad and Felix—-I loved that “Triumvirate”….. Did… Read more »

How about Sasha and Britt as long-lost sibs, CeeCeeGirl????? There is a strong physical resemblance between the two actresses….if so, this will be just another instance where our beloved Liesl will have some heavy-duty ‘splainin’ to do….As for Britt bonding with Peter??? No, just, no…the fact that they share some common DNA as half-Faisons doesn’t mean that they have anything in common beyond being spawns of a perpetually-deranged paternal figure. Why even bother to go there, especially if Cesar is no longer amongst the living???

Hi, Violet! Didn’t notice; can’t even remember what he looked like! Hopefully we’ll see lil Leo again.

Just wanted to let you know I replied to you several times on the other thread and thanked your for your support/agreement, etc. Unfortunately, it didn’t post.

In case I miss the edit on this, I just want to say that I typed THEIR vote, not there. There has been so much discussion on proper grammar, etc lately, and my keyboard has a mind of it’s own.

That would be “its” own! LOL! 😉 (and, yes, lots of grammar talk.) I usually don’t point that out unless someone’s pointing daggers at me. I prefer insults and attacks to be in proper English. LOL. I do have to admit, though, that I was watching a new show, “A Million Little Things” (which I love, although the first episode didn’t do it for me but I hung in there. I’m so hoping it gets renewed and others hung in there, too. But I digress…) So, I’m watching the show and one of the characters (a black character) goes to… Read more »

I love the show A Million Little Things, but can’t remember that particular episode. What bothers me more than the bad grammar, is all the new catch phrases and expressions they are using, i.e, radio silence, being ghoasted,etc. I watch just about every crime show that’s on, including Bull, plus Grey’s Anatomy and my favorite The Good Doctor. I recommend this show to everyone.

Hey, Violet. I used to go crazy when everyone started saying “gone missing” or “went missing.”

The scene I’m referring to is when Rome goes to visit his parents. His father is on the ladder fixing the light and his mom comes out to greet him. I don’t remember the sentence she used but that’s when the was was. 😉

rebecca1 I am sure I saw it, just can’t remember it, but I’ve heard people say things like “where was you? or we was just there, etc”.Another thing that drives me nuts is you and me vs you and I. I am sure as a kid, we were taught to say, as an example, that house belongs to you and me, or should it be me and you, and to say it first to our self ” that house belongs to me”, and not say you and I, because we would never say “that house belongs to I” Am I… Read more »

The Queens proper English is not spoken in America.
Most all speak American.
American is not always proper English as in days of yore.

When filling out forms and asked which language you speak, it’s American.
((there is a difference, indeed.

Haha. Hi, Sue. I didn’t mean “proper”as in British. I meant grammatically correct. We “was” talking is just wrong unless the writers “was” going for supposed ebonics. Just sounded uneducated which this family was not.

I wasn’t talking about the Queen’s proper English. I was talking about using proper English as in good grammar vs bad.

su000, my pet peeve is when a lot of speakers–as well as reporters–on tv go out of their way to use objects of prepositions incorrectly. Common example: “between you and I” or “between she/he and I” Of course, the correct usage is “between you and me” and “between her and me” The nominative pronouns “I” and “she/he” are used as subjects and the objective case of pronouns “me” and “her/him” are used as objects (of verbs and prepositions) That’s my bugaboo. Other than that, I accept the “levels” of usage–formal and informal. And I love all the colorful “localisms” from… Read more »

Did you mean, colloquialism? There’s a difference between having “flavor” based on culture and bastardization (and improper usage) of a language.

He chose to leave, so the soap execs aren’t “ding-bats,” plus, he is already on another television series that’s in-production right now. So, it’s not their decision. It was Zamprogna’s to leave.

I’m guessing the Thanksgiving episode, as it’s a logical time for Dante to pop in. He and Lulu can argue and make up in the episode, sending him off again for another 6 months.

the one thing I know for certain… is Dante at least gave Lulu a life line… a let, for her momma smurph, immature zany ditzy chicking w/Maxie. these two.. for what life have you

to feature these two … as they dance around Peter August… oh lordy.. this has gone nowhere… SPIRAL

yawn… throw me in to the ditz pool… as this show… execution style Frank Valentini with lap dog Shelly and chris have no mindset for this genre… they are killing GH

Does Dante’s “appearance” herald ominous news for Lulu? He wants a divorce.

GH needs to get all these stories moving. Everything seems to be dragging on and on and on etc. There are to many story lines on the go and going no where. No wonder they are losing viewers.

I beg to differ on the Ryan storyline. They’re covering all their bases, building up suspense and including the vets. There was no need to see him slaughter Mary Pat. The “well hello” moment with the iron pick was sublime.

I agree, Steve. The Ryan story is just bop, bop, bopping along. I mean, it’s a barrel of laughs!
Seriously, I could watch Jon Lindstrom play Ryan all day. His expressions and mannerisms are priceless.

I believe if he doesn’t come back, even under recurring status, I suspect that the soap may recast the role, and I’m okay with that. What about Bryan Dattilo (ex-Lucas, DAYS)?

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
