Word today from CBS Soaps in Depth has former General Hospital bad guy, Bruce Weitz (Ex-Anthony Zacchara) slated to appear on The Young and the Restless!

Weitz will be appearing as the character of Barry, beginning on the Wednesday April 17th episode!  However according to SID, “This will a much shorter stint than his time on GH. Weitz is only scheduled to appear in three episodes. ”

So Y&R fans, who do you think Weitz’s Barry will be involved with Genoa City? Are you cool with this casting? Or are you going to feel that Weitz just got the part because he has worked with current Y&R EP, Jill Farren Phelps when she was at the helm of General Hospital?  Whatever the reason for the casting, there is no doubt that Weitz is certainly an exceptional actor to have in any cast …  on any soap!

Love Bruce Weitz, he’s done countless shows. Glad he will be in Genoa City but definitely should be more than three episodes.

I do hope Sharon has a brother and it is Dylan. Rumors go that Doris had an affair with Dylans dad many years ago and did not tell Sharon. I love this idea and i bet Bill Bell would alo. Sharon is the only main star of the show with no siblings! Her best friend Drucilla we beg for her return every damn day but nothing! Does this show care what the fans who have bben there since 1973 think??? I love Shadam they need a son not this Chelsea crazy women recast and sent her on her way to Paris! 🙂

Not all of us are clamoring for the return of Drucilla. 🙂

Anyway, I think the return of Drucilla, as played by Victoria Rowell is much bigger than giving the “fans what they want.” The backstage turmoil was probably just too much, but they could always try and recast, I suppose.

I agree that Sharon needs some family. Dylan would make sense because he did not grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth like the rest of the Genoa City characters. I REALLY like that the show has a MAN. Not a male, but a MAN who knows how to fix cars and give a lady a lift when her car breaks down. Chivalry is not dead. 🙂

I don’t know. I hope it does turn out that Sharon and Dylan had the same father. Maybe this will be a old buddy of Dylans dad?

That would be GREAT if Sharon is Dylans brother! Maybe this will be the uncle that knows the truth and Doris had an affair with Dylans father.

Bruce is great and they are lucky to get him! Could be an associate of Leslie’s father or the congressman or Dylan’s dad.

Christine

Is there more mystery to Dylan’s dad to come because I thought he just passed away today and that actor was not Bruce Weitz.

Jessicia

Sharon and Dylan siblings 🙂

I have heard the rumors of that, Jessicia, but I guess that would mean that the guy who just passed away was not Dylan’s biological father? I did not watch Y&R when Sharon came to Genoa City so I don’t know her history other than it was rough and her mother is in another town in a wheelchair.

jim

Maybe the congressman is Leslies real father and this is the real reason the man she thought was her biological father killed her mother after finding out the truth. Bruce W. could be a hired hit man who shoots the congressman and in his hospital bed he will confess to Leslie that he is her real father. Its just an idea.

maybe he is a friend of congressman wheelers…………..

I hope this page does not become overloaded with “Friends of Jill” comments because, like it or not, THIS man can act. He was wonderful as Anthony Zacchara as well as on HILL STREET BLUES.

If they are smart they will make him recurring in some capacity.

He will probably figure into the story about Leslie’s criminal Dad

That’s my guess as well David.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
