GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Goes Blind … What Is The Cause? Franco Is Kicked To The Curb As “Kevin’s” Patient

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers of ABC’s General Hospital were in for a twist on Friday’s episode, when Anna Devane suddenly and inexplicably goes blind!  It is a terrifying moment for Anna and throughout the first part of this new arc, played beautifully by Finola Hughes.

But what is the cause of her sudden blindness? After Anna is brought to ‘General Hospital’ by her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Finn (Michael Easton) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) are there to try to calm her down and to try to figure out what is wrong with her, Griffin runs some tests.

Meanwhile, Griffin and Finn get into a tiff over Griffin’s lack of bedside manner and his losing his faith. Griffin says its all now about the data, as he is still reeling from Kiki’s murder.

Later, Griffin reveals to Finn and Anna that the tests show that she has experienced a vitreous hemorrhage.  However, he doesn’t know what caused this … or if her vision can be restored.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH co-head writer, Shelly Altman previews of this story for Anna, “What has happened to Anna will lead us to uncover a mystery that affects not only Anna, but several surprisingly unrelated people.”

Meanwhile, Peter meets up with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) at Kelly’s and tells him what happened to Anna and that she suddenly went blind, but to stay away from his mother.. He also has a warning for Valentin, that whatever Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) has on him will come back to bite him sooner than later, and we all know that Valentin hired Sasha to pose as Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) long-lost daughter, and Obrecht knows it!

And, Franco (Roger Howarth) just may trip upon the lock box in Kevin’s office, that holds the clues to everyone Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has murdered!  How does that come about? After, Franco runs into a gun-toting Ava (Maura West) on the pier, “Kevin” shows up.  He tells Franco he can no longer be his doctor and he will refer him to someone else.  Franco does not want to end his therapy with Dr. Collins, but it’s of no use in changing “Kevin’s” mind.

When Franco makes his exit, Ryan tells Ava that they should leave Port Charles together and never look back.  Then, Franco breaks in to Kevin’s office at GH, and goes looking for his patient file and that is where we see the lock box.  Will Franco figure out what is going down?

So, what do you think is happening to Anna and why?  Is Franco now in dire straits if Ryan finds him rummaging through “Kevin’s” office?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Finally, a story for FH: a wonderful actress who does not overact, like some of her co-stars! We have been through Ava’s non-stop travails and tantrums, Carly’s traumas, Nina’s tears…and through all I have wondered when FH – who made her GH debut almost 35 years ago – was going to get an actual storyline. Well, finally. And I look forward to it.

It seems that, with new credits heralding a new year, we are finally going to get some new stories!!

I have sort of high expectations for Anna’s story because of FH and the actors in this arc (and how can Robert and Robin NOT be a part of this)! For once writers, please give us a story with a beginning, middle and end that reflect thought and follow-through!

I’m betting someone from the DVX is playing with Anna’s eyesight. I miss those kind of stories (remember them?). As for Franco, he could be Ryan’s next victim since I don’t see this story ending just yet.

dvx, those Russians are not only medaling in our elections, now they are targeting our super spy Anna Devane, could she have found out about trump and Putin? I miss those stories too, its time for those Russian to try something in port Charles, we know Anna and friends will save the day.

i’am all for any storyline with Finola, she’s one of my fave, I wish they would give Rebecca Herbts something of her own too, as for the storyline, yikes, my top phobia is going blind, I’m not sure why that’s mine, its been mine as a kid, long story still those type of stories scare me and give me anxiety, so I’ll watch but I hope its not for long I can see this storyline triggering major anxiety for me. but I’m really interested in the mystery aspect of it, and how it will affect other characters, and off subject, can they please make Griffen Anna’s son. I love seeing them together. didn’t Olivia Jerome hint at something about Griffen and Anna ? i’m all for Anna being the biological mom whose eggs were stolen and someone else carry Griffen just make him her son already he’s a better choice the boring Peter.

Finola will hit this out of the park! BUT, you have to many weak actors around her that may hurt her story.

#1 Finn: Can someone please tell him he is not Bruce Willis! He tries to rattle off all these one liners and he is terrible at it and he and Anna together have no sex appeal!

#2 Peter: He has to be Alex’s kid. Anna would NEVER slip with Faison! Peter is an annoying character that no one seems to like!

So lets have Anna regain her sight in May. First thing she sees is Robert. Then Robin with PATRICK and DUKE with Griffin!

Now onto Ryan. First, I hope the bosses now believe that our beloved vets can carry a damn story! Jon has been great! I could list Ryan’s next victim but it would be wishful thinking. It wont be Franco. By the way, telling the Ryan/Kevin story without Felicia would be like telling the Romeo and Juliet story WITHOUT Juliet!

OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.

Cause of Death of Disney and ‘GH: Night Shift’ Alum, Cameron Boyce Deferred Following Autopsy; Industry Heartbroken Over Loss

Fans, and the entertainment industry including; many soap opera notables, have been saddened over the sudden death of the very popular Disney Channel star, Cameron Boyce over this past weekend.

On Monday, an autopsy was performed and the cause of death was ‘deferred pending further investigation’ according to the L.A. County Department of Medical Examiner Coronier’s office.

Boyce was found unresponsive in his home on Saturday afternoon.  A spokesperson for the Boyce family said in statement previously that the beloved actor died from a seizure in his sleep: “It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron.  He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”

Although, best known for his roles on the Descendants and the TV series Jessie,  as well as the movies Grown Up and Grown Ups 2 that starred Adam Sander, Boyce was only 20 years old.

Boyce also appeared on General Hospital’s spin-off, GH: Night Shift in the role of Stone, the son of Jagger Cates (Antonio Sabato Jr.) and Karen.  Upon learning of his death, his former on-screen dad, Sabato Jr. tweeted: ” Rest In Peace Cameron Boyce, it was an honor to have worked with you and spend our time together. Man my heart is broken, what an amazing kid with an amazing future. My deepest condolences to his family & friends. We will all miss you. #brokenheart.”

Kimberly McCullough, (Robin, GH) posted, “#CameronBoyce Had the pleasure of working with him on Night Shift where he played ‘Stone Jr.’ Broke out some crazy legs one day on set.  That’s how I’ll remember him. RIP bright soul.”

Anyone who has young children has probably watched this man 1 million times! And seen just how talented he is. What an honor to have met this young, charismatic man who joyfully sent this message to my daughter who is IN LOVE with him. I want to send out my love and prayers to Cameron’s family. This is a GREAT loss for all of us. God Speed. You will ALWAYS shine bright ”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?

Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!

Courtes/ABC

As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?

So, what did you think about Kim drugging Drew? Who pushed Liesl overboard? What trouble will Hayden cause?  Share your theories via the comment section below.
