In time for the holidays, looks like Emily Wilson will be reprising her role of GH’s Ellie, which means Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) will have some companionship!

General Hospital is on board again this year doing something very special to benefit Toys for Tots. so they will be  throwing an on-screen “Nutcracker Gala”!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Ellie’s singing and dancing skills may be needed for this one, with Bradford Anderson, who we all know can also belt out a tune, to appear in this on-screen event.

So, glad to have Ellie back for a visit on GH? What do you think about the upcoming “Nutcracker gala”? Comment below!

If Emily Q hadn’t really died, Emily Wilson, who seems to resemble EQ, could have been a good recast for her if she was found “miraculously” alive…which isn’t a stretch for GH. She could have straightened Nicholas out. Another cautionary tale about not killing off characters in case you need them later.

She wouldve made a perfect recast as Emily!

Good call Rose. I can defintely see her as an Emily recast…although I don’t think Natalie Livingston…lol…was that her name?…quit. So in actuality, she could reprise her own role. Unless she was fired. Which I don’t remember. Lol. Still…good call!

Wow, you are right, Rose. I had not thought of that possibility.
I love Ellie? Why? Because she is a damn smart girl who does not have to pretend to be stupid in order to nab a man. Moreover, she believes sisterhood is powerful and she doesn’t turn catty and take out her claws when there is female competition in her sphere. Moreover, she is quite lovely to look upon.
I don’t know if young girls use soap opera characters as role models anymore but if they still do, Ellie provides a good one.

I like Emily and her character. I think the event will be enjoyable – and it’s for a good cause.

I agree. I like the Ellie Trout. I’d love if both she and Spinelli returned full time.

Me too! Bradford Anderson Can ACT! Like really act!
And I’ve loved Ellie from day one. They would make the young adult cast rich and full of substance

A Nutcracker Gala? Does that mean we get to see Nathan West at his finest, playing a wooden soldier! [Thats for you my Ceecee!] No, thats great, kind of like a second Nurses Ball type event for the Holidays. Great cause, hats off GH!

CeeCee

Lol, my Timmm, my love. As long as Nathan can generate as much money as he generates heat for all us girls, he can prance around in a burlap sac. I give my all to my charities….lots going on right now….later.

Somehow i knew you would mention Nathan…he would be perfect as a wooden soldier-i just hope there are no wooden soldiers who might feel offended…some are so easily offended by others remarks…lol

ABC =’s Disney have them give away a few family Disney holiday cruises,
a hundred Park tickets, plus hundreds of toys brought in by Disney characters.
Leader of the pack should be no other than Dr.O, dressed as the Grinch.

She is a good “other half” for Spinelli. She’ll probably add a little fun to the holidays events and then go off into the background again when it’s over.

Good news,I love Ellie/Emily,and I wonder if this means we’ll be seeing Harper as Georgie again?

Kudos to GH for this worthy cause….doing our best here, as we speak. Also give whatever you can to Children Charities ( pediatrics…your local Children’s Hospital). Every penny counts.
I am looking forward to seeing Emily….especially for this heart-giving and noble undertaking. Thank you.

Fanny
Fanny

@CeeCee…your a beautiful person inside and out❗️

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you, Fanny, sweet lady. There is a heartfelt fulfillment helping others, for me. Every altruistic gesture is a great personal reward. Fanny, there are children who have never seen the outside…have never had a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner at home, have never seen the inside of a toy store. Some will never see tomorrow. To see their happy faces when receiving such a small gift as a matchbox car or a Barbie is so bittersweet. These beautiful kids enjoy anyone who will entertain them with a song, or a good storyteller, who can bring characters to life. The stars in their eyes and smiles on their faces is rewarding enough for me. So many families cannot afford treatment….. There are so many charities, raising money for state of the art equipment. Hospitals depend on donations; private or otherwise. ( feeding the hungry is another worthy cause).
I am no saint, my dear lady. I am human; therefore, imperfect. However, I graciously thank you and accept your kind words. This is why I am so elated about the Toys for Tots ‘extravaganza’ with Emily at the helm.

On another note, I just finished watching today’s episode. My parents maintain an apartment in the city, so we DVR’d the shows. Anyway, it was such a treat to see Helena today. I found that scene so out-of-this-world hilarious. She was great. Her reference to Sam and Liz…”Tweedlee dee and tweedlee dum(ber)…. How rich!!!! Far out, man! Later.

Fanny
Fanny

@CeeCee.. Hope Helena has a little more to impart on the ‘Tweedlee Twins’…
Watching her put on a ‘show’ for her impromptu guests, should be the highlight
of Friday’s show… Helena will say juuuussst enough so as not to implicate Nick..
She has to clue Jason in on Robin somehow.. So Jason can find her. Robin can
then in turn help him fill in the blanks. Oh! What fun!!!

Shay
Shay

Hey, CeeCeeGirl! Was Helena not just the most elegant woman on her deathbed ever??? Even the oxygen tube didn’t mar her icy beauty—or white hot mojo— and that sassy silk pajamas ensemble?..Fierce and fabulous!!!! I loved her “dumb and dumber ” quip, too! Me thinks this is going to be one wonderful tour de force by Miss Constance Towers! Finally, something intelligent to sink our teeth into….about time!!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

How a propos was Helena pegging Miss Lizzie ‘insipid’ and Mrs. Morgan ‘guttersnipe’, my ShayGirl?
The fear on Liz’s face was palpable. Is there something more to Liz of which we are not aware? Perhaps she had Jason ingest some drug to impede him from remembering who he was. Could she have been working with Helena all along? Too many furtive looks being thrown between them.
Why does Helena do these things? For sport? Ha!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Absolutely, ShayGirl. Helena can surely make even a cannula look like a priceless gem.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Fanny.
Hey, Fanny.
The only way Helena will clue in Jason as to Robin’s whereabouts would be how sincere this ‘tell-all’ regurgitation of hers is.
I think you’re on to something,Fanny. Jason truly needs to find Robin. I did not put two and two together until you mentioned her. Makes sense. He will save her and himself. Again, Jason the hero?
Later, my friend.

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee!!!!….Helena and I do share a great love of that delightfully descriptive word, “guttersnipe!” LOL. (I also quite like “insipid”, as well!) Oh, that woman is simply an inspiration! When she is featured, it feels like GH has regained its identity! Having said that, I doubt the mighty Helena would lower herself to be in cahoots with Little Ol’ Liz….but she is undoubtedly privy to Nik’s alliance with Nurse Webber on all nefarious things Jason, and as such, Liz is terrified of having her duplicity revealed there to one and all. This is finally getting good! As for WHY Helena does what she does? Purely because she can, CeeCeeGirl! (Plus, it gives her undiluted pleasure to boot….) Isn’t that reason enough? Why yes!…..I do believe it is…..

I liked Ellie. will they be changing her name to Corinthous ? seems the whole show is about Sonnys lives , wives and brain dead kids. no thanks I will pass. Evil rules on GH.

su0000

hi JANET..
Same as Victor Newman, the /newman family.. (and the Abbotts)
Y&R, near the whole soap revolves around the Newmans & Abbotts, all others are disposable..
The Y&R screen are the Newmans the Abbotts in every scene every single day, every episode, without fail.
(GH has much variety of characters and their stories, too– Anna, Jason, Patrick, Nik & Hayden, Franco & Nina, Liz, Tracy, Ava, Julian, Alexis, and others /variety of stories)

I, as others, luv Sonny and the Corinthos family..
I like Ellie, also.. But still want Maxie and Spin together.

I go wack if GH brought on — Port Chuck —
It would be sooo fine to hear/see the guys together again.
Port Chuck in a GH episode playing for whatever occasion!!

Fanny

Su000…It can’t happen Steve Burton (real Jason) is part of that group….

hi Fanny.
yes, I know..
But perhaps it could be worked out because he would be in the band not actually in a GH story..The band would be a guest appearance, but doubt it will ever happen..
I do miss Port Chuck 🙁

Shay

Maybe “Ronn Moss” could fill in for him since he seems so at home on the Port Charles stage! (I’m sure Spencer could facilitate the details….)

This is GREAT !!! Emily is one of my favorites and I’ve missed her.

Patrick

I think they should revisit a return with Ellie and Nathan!

??? what is going on or what isn’t… with Maxie and Nathan…

I too hope that her working with Nina… will , “finally” up the ante on the acting firepower… we know Kirsten Storms to be

she’s been doa for so long… that it may not even matter

I love Ellie… her presence is so interesting… I have always wished… I think JimH brought it up first… that she could woulda shoulda been Tracy long lost daughter!

I’d welcome her back full time

she’s always a return treat!

Patricia

I love Emily and most especially Brad. I wish they would both come back permanently. Have them move home and be part of Port Charles again. Now that Jason is back, they’ll be plenty for Brad to do and Emily can go back to the hospital, which needs some staff and some storyline.

I love gh
I love gh

She is fun! Glad she’s back.

So very happy to hear this news. I have always loved Ellie and Spin as a couple and really enjoyed them at last year’s Nurses Ball. Bradford did such a good job in singing “It might be you” and that lead to them getting back together. Ellie also really cracked me up when she was dancing up a storm around Nathan during the Magic Milo performance. I want them both back in PC for good. Ellie can get her job back at the hospital as lab manager and Spin can work his hacking magic for Sonny/Jason and uncover Paul Hornsby as the one targeting the The Corinthos Organization.

Emily and Bradford are always welcome faces on my TV screen. I, too, wish TPTB would bring them back permanently, but the cast already is quite large. And now they’re bringing on yet another new face (character)! What’s wrong with the older faces, on the characters we’ve loved watching for decades?!
Another reason to bring Ellie and Damien back to Port Chuckles is that little Georgie will be able to be with her mom on a regular basis. That’s a win-win situation, if there ever was one.
I think the co-head writers are heading in the right direction. I would want them to know that we long-time fans (since 1983 for me) want to see the core families, i.e. Quartermaines, Scorpios, returned to the forefront on a permanent basis. I want to see Mac and Felicia reunited with Maxie, and Lucy reunited with, well, everyone! Lynn Herring, you are greatly missed.

Definitely looking forward to what the holidays bring to G.H. and whose faces will be seen that we’ve missed so much.

Shay

Would also be a great time for a Dr. Noah Drake Christmas visit—his son and granddaughter need him—or at least a Rick Springfield appearance at the gala. Ditto for Jack Wagner’s “Frisco!” After the debacle of his last storyline, it would be a much-appreciated gesture for a do-over on his character’s hasty—and ultimately unsatisfying—exit! Bring him back!

Fanny

@Shay… I LOVE that❗️❗️❗️

Thanks, Fanny! Seeing those iconic fan favorites would make for a wonderful Christmas gift to loyal GH viewers!

Emily is SUCH a breath of fresh air every time she returns! And I’m absolutely thrilled anytime a Colorado kid does well…

Toys for Tots is a worthy organization that GH is getting behind, but as long as the Nutcracker Ball doesn’t replace The Nurse’s Ball, I’m good…

This might get me watching GH again. I stopped watching GH three months ago out of sheer boredom and disgust of Sonny & Company.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
