Tomorrow is a big day for General Hospital! As it nears its 50th Anniversary in April, the show is bringing in the big guns! And perhaps none bigger than soap icon, Genie Francis who returns as Laura on Monday’s episode.

And it looks like it will be old times when the following week on February 19th, fan favorite Kin Shriner returns as Scotty Baldwin.  Just what will happen when long time nemesis’ Luke (Anthony Geary) and Scotty meet up again? What will Laura do?  What has happened to Laura while she was away in Europe?

While we will have to wait for all the answers to unfold over the next few months on General Hospital, EW.com has released some exclusive photos of Genie and Kin’s return and one of GH’s 50th Anniversary logo! 

After you check out the images, let us know what you think is the back-story to explain where Laura has been? What mystery does she bring with her?  Do you think she might have re-married Scotty while she was away from Port Charles? Let us know your thoughts!

Love the logo! Very classy. Can’t wait to see Genie back in PC along with Luke and Scotty and what story has been written for them.
I hope ABC fills the airways with 50th anniversary promos. I’m watching the Valentines’ Day GH marathon on Soapnet right now and they are starting.
We need to build up GH all we can. I could only hope that someday they will take the No. 1 spot from Y & R.

Although I am a life-long Luke and Laura fan and think it is a travesty that Genie has not been used all these years (JFP)… I hope Laura an Scotty ARE married… oh the storyline, humor, drama…you name it… potential! I cannot wait…

I agree – I am looking forward to a Laura / Scotty pairing and the fallout instead of a Laura / Luke pairing. Genie needs a meaty storyline and with Scotty she could get that!

I see GH is going back into the 12980’s. Remember Scotty Baldwin got on the same jet as Laura did when she left for Europe. I hope she and Scotty are married, that way, Luke and Tracy can get back together.

Monday is FINALLY here. What a great day for all the “newer” members of “the club.” And FINALLY having a fantastic story teller writing this chapter of the LnL story, I for one am beyond excited. TG and GF are so fantastic, they have the ability to tell the story without saying a word…….their looks are great. My only concern is making the reason for Laura staying away from Nicholas, Lucky and Lulu believable. But I have faith in FV and RC. And to all the fans of Luke and Tracy…….you are about to understand why us LnL club members… Read more »

Luke remarried while Laura was away, Laura should too.But married to Scotty or not, its thrilling just to see them back on the show. It just wasnt the same without them. Im curious to know whatever happened to the original Laura played be Stacey Baldwin? I think thats her name. and i know Scotty was originally played by Johnny Whitaker plus a few others before Kin. But Genie and Kin will always be Laura and Scotty to me.

When you “Think Of Laura”, laugh, dont cry, i know she’d want it that way.

Laura deserves so much better than either one. But if she HAS to choose between the two, then it should be Scotty. Luke has become such a complete ego- bloated scuzzball, with all the charm of a guy coming off a three week drunk that all he deserves is a shower, a scrubdown, and a hot meal at the local men’s shelter.
PEEE YEWWW.

Will Bobbie be coming back for the 50th??….she is Carly’s mom and Luke’s sister and was a big part of the 80s storylines….and Bobbie’s gay son, Lucas (i think was his name)….maybe John Stamos can make a cameo return and get Blackie out of prison…he sure has been there a loooonnnngggg time for daytime…LOL

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
