General Hospital Big January Bombshells!

ABC has released a new promo for General Hospital which entices viewers by letting them know things are about to go down this month!

As January begins, Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes) share a steamy kiss, while it appears Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Julian (William deVry), “You owe me blood.”  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is shocked over something she finds out, while Nathan (Ryan Paevey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) are reeling from the news that Faison is Nathan’s bio-dad.

Now Maxie asks Mac(John J. York) to help her and Nathan disappear! She is concerned about her unborn baby.

Meanwhile, everyone is guessing just who could be Faison’s other son that links the story of what happened to Jason (Steve Burton) and Drew (Billy Miller).

Watch this week’s promo for GH after the jump.  Then let us know, how do you think all of these stories will play themselves out in the comment section below!

Peter August will be Faison’s other son!

Jovin

Why the Faison obsession all of a sudden?! We don’t want to see a show populated by his offspring! The show has been awesome for months…but all this Faison stuff is a downer. So is Sonny telling Julian he owes him blood! The show is SO much livelier, more romantic, and far more entertaining when Sonny isn’t on! I don’t like Julian at all, but he owes Sonny nothing! Sonny is a savage bloodthirsty pig!!! Just a note on Julian, if he is trying to start over and convince people he is being a better man, why does he barge… Read more »

@Jovin (and Patrick)….Your thoughts on Molly are so spot-on! She used to be such a lovely, well-mannered young lady, naturally beautiful and sweet-tempered. What happened???? As of late, she has seemingly morphed into a junior version of her overbearing mother…obnoxious, bolshie and mouthy!!! She has even adopted a more physical resemblance to Alexis with the overly-mature haircolor and style, which is not nearly as attractive as her own originally gorgeous, glossy brunette locks! Please, please save this character from being overtaken by her maternal DNA before it’s too late, or next thing you know, Molly will be trotting around in… Read more »

I, too, agree with almost everything you said, Jovin. But, like Boop, I like Julian. As for his attitude…he did try. He tried with Alexis and Sam. He tried with Molly. They all basically spit in his face. He has asked repeatedly to be allowed to see his son. Olivia has said no at every turn. He gave up his rights and agreed to let Ned be his son’s father when he thought he’d remain in jail. That alone should have shown Olivia that he puts his children first. So, I can understand his “attitude.” However, you’re right about his… Read more »

Probably Franco…but i want Finn(dont care about age difference)…Anna was Faison’s obsession for so long and having her falling in love with his son would be a shocker to Anna!!!!…i know others think its that other guy working with Lulu or maybe its Dr.Brandt but Finn would throw complications into his relationship with Anna!!!!

Celia

Doesn’t she? I tend to agree with Shay….she proposed a real-life pregnancy….hmmm…I wonder. Kirsten could be, T.
Also, isn’t that Greg Evigan? ( developer guy)…. you know who I mean? I watched BJ and the Bear reruns….and, My Two Dads? Gosh Almighty…he was sooooo hot. He still is, I guess.

If Kirsten is pregnant, it works, she looks radiant!

One of the things I love about you Celia is your old soul. YES, that is Greg Evigan! I loved BJ and the Bear! Greg is 64 and he looks fantastic! I pray that he stays on the show. He can act and is charming. Now that he is connected to Franco’s childhood, I may get my wish!

@Boop.
Hey, Boop,
You are welcome. Timmm is soooo right…Greg is 64 and still hot, LOL.

@CeeCee and Timmm…Mr. Evigan would have made an excellent Jeff Webber recast….same youthful and sexy vibe that “McGyver” once had!

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

I think you could be right about Evigan’s new character and Franco. He knows Franco and the two are too far apart in age to be old friends so yeah, maybe his father. I never bought Scott and Heather as Franco’s parents. Too wacky!

Shay
Guest
Shay

@CeeCee…The more we see of Maxie, the greater my contention that her portrayer is also “with child.” There is simply something about her demeanor that makes me suspect so….she has that unique combination of the visible ennui and glow of an expectant mother! As for Greg Evigan’s rather shady character being Franco’s father???? Hmmm….me thinks he’s more of a scammer looking to score with that Charles Street development deal and regards the man-child artiste as a key to achieving that goal???

Celia
Guest
Celia

@Shay.
Maxie looks about four months/five months along, Shay; depending how big or small a woman carries….whether it’s real life or a pillow is yet to be seen. LOL.
Regardless, Kirsten looks healthy and that particular glow, which some refer to as mythical, is actually there. She shines with it,
More power to her….all the best if your hunch is correct.

Celia
Guest

Right, T? I never bought the father-son thing ….I just wonder if Scotty is in on this mystery with Heather, if true. And, if so, why?….see that? It is gaining momentum for me….and piquing my interest—– It is exhilarating, anticipating whatever develops….love the story, albeit Franco is freaky, LOL. By the opposite token, I am not intrigued, one bit, with the Sam/Drew/Jason love triangle. Now, I know you like Steve, and, perhaps, the storyline…I respect that. I like Steve, as well……but, the only character who interests me; who has the potention of an engaging, and riveting storyline, is Drew….there’s so… Read more »

I have to say;
To suggest those are BOMBSHELLS of the upcoming goes to show how terribly low the bar has dropped for GH..

That promo used to be a Normal week for GH, simply a ya ya normal everyday week..
Now its called BOMBSHELLS, and that is more than sad it’s pitiful, actually.

Seriously, that promo would not even have gotten a mention yet to be referred to as a BOMBSHELL for GH , how low the drama for GH has fallen.

Bombshell @ GH. Implosion of the whole production team. I am – sooooo – irritated… “how dare he, Michael , talk down to Ned Quartermaine, how effin dare he” yeah, this has to play out… as Ned quit … Michael did this again… at the Q’s , as they celebrated Christmas… Michael , thought Ned was so out of line, about shares of ELQ… and told him… “do I have to rethink my bringing you on” This story sucks.. and any thing to do with Chad Duell portrait of Michael. he sucks. this made me implode Wally Kurth ‘ Ned… Read more »

Really like Ned/Wally. Want him to have a permanent stay on GH. But far prefer Michael’s vision for redevelopment and emergency health clinic than just new, big, expensive, displacement of neighborhoods. Too much of that in real life. Hope they can come to a combo of both sensibilities. But do agree with many about the blind loyalty Michael shows towards Sonny…AJ, baby Avery and Sonny’s profession come to mind.

“Never a dull moment”

I swear .. it looked like anna was crying like a school girl.. at GH….. when Liz was talking to her. about: giving it a try w/Finn. think about it

Michael Easton has been propped .. and given more chance than any character I know.

the writing is on the wall… hurry up and wait fans.

Oh Joey, no. Please don’t let that be true (though you’re probably right). I really can’t bear Wes Ramsey in this role. I liked him on GL, but he is miscast here. To me, he looks like a high school drama student trying to play older. And badly.

Violet Lemm

@Soaphound. At least he is among his old friends from GL, especially his lady love, Laura Wright. Can’t wait until she has reason to chew him out, for some reason or other. Should be fun. They didn’t interact, while both on GL, if I remember right.

I am not familiar with this actor, Soaphound….but, I must agree. He does look like a High School student. He’s Laura’s real-life boyfried? Wow!!
I, sort of, put him in the same box as Zack on Y&R—both look too young for their respective roles.

GH is usually so on point with their casting but lately they haven’t been doing very well. The Swiss doctor was TERRIBLE and the publisher is just as bad. I don’t know the actor as I never watched GL so I can only see him for what he’s doing on this show.. .and he’s marginal at best.

Hey, T….
Just watched today’s episode….finally took a breather…
I don’t know if you follow all my posts ( you better!!, LOL)….. many a time I have suggested that Scotty was not Franco’s bio dad…..however, a few fans poo-pooed over my hunch. Scotty appeared very evasive and nervous to me when Franco tried to pry ‘stuff’ from him…
Well, as I was watching the intense scrutiny Jim Harvey ( Greg Evigan) bestowed upon Franco, I couldn’t help but think that he may be Franco’s father. Too far-fetched?
Why the interest in Franco? This guy is somehow an integral part of Franco’s past.

Am I the only one that thinks Nathan’s bio dad will be Faison’s son and not Faison– Dr. O would not be that nervous if Nathan’s dad was Faison, but is she slept with his son and had a child will him that would have blown her world to pieces if Faison found out– just a thought.

Jacob
Guest
Jacob

Well, Faison is like 60 and Nathan is 33… soooooooo possible but I think that might be a struggle to reconcile (not that GH or soaps in general care much about reality when it comes to ages… but what did Dr. O do? molest a 15 year old?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Great observation, Mary….so good….so juicy. Most think Peter is the ‘other’ son….thus, if that’s the case, he must have done the deed with Dr. O when he was ten?
Nonetheless, my litany has always been ….”It’s a soap”….where age is only a state of mind.

Hope Frank found the $ and is bringing Anders Hove back for a few weeks. Faison can’t just be talked about, we need to see him.

If the rumors about RP leaving are true, Nathan coming face to face with his bio-dad would be a way to usher him off the canvas.

Sort of like how Anna always speaks with Robert “on the phone” due to the prolonged absence of Tristan Rogers’ Scorpio…and likewise with the famously deadbeat dad and WSB head honcho, Frisco!

Steve
Guest

It’s not a $ thing with TR. Frank needs to eat crow and promise a meaningful role for Robert to get Rogers back.

For Hove, the show probably has to pay to fly him from Europe and accommodations during his taping appearances.

There’s no need for Frisco in PC. Maxie and Felicia are both better off.

I certainly hope not, Sir Timmmbo, because our wishes always spring eternal that Robert Scorpio shall again grace Port Charles with his sparkling presence! Given that both he and Frisco have a long history with the WSB, it would be only natural for at least one of them to materialize during this tangled web of a Faison-Cassadine caper. As for Felicia and Maxie not needing Frisco in their lives??? Whilst ex-wifey may not have any further use for him—-and vice-versa, if we’re going to be honest here—-with Maxie and Nathan’s lives, along with their unborn child’s future, in jeopardy, it… Read more »

I had predicted a few threads back that Kim and Peter were in cahoots re: Drew & Jason. That payoff will only be worth watching if we see Nathan and Peter’s daddy pop-up during February sweeps.

BTW, since Oscar never had a proper DNA test, it is probable that they could retcon his bio dad to Peter if the character catches on with the audience.

Making Kim and Peter’s deviances the product of Nik Cassadine would be too far fetched I suppose. When the character returns it will likely revolve around Valentin and possibly a Claudette resurgence.

Steve
Guest

So far, Peter is a dud. Maybe that’s the way Wes is playing him, but the acting seems forced.

Your point about Oscar’s DNA is true, but I can’t see them giving us a new Quartermaine, then taking him away.

I have a feeling that the traitor/Cesar Faison’s son is also Anna Devane’s son from when Anna worked as a double agent for the WSB and the DVX. Its a possibility that Anna didn’t just give birth to Robin Scorpio during those years. These are photos from when Anna agreed to work for the DVX!!! Faison had talked about Anna to Desiree in 1990 as though he had been intimate with her in the past. Maybe he had been but maybe not willingly, on her end. Anna and Robert Scorpio have both been under his mind control before. This feels… Read more »

I have watched the show since ’84, and unfortunately, now I only “watch” it as filler in the background. I do like Steve Burton, and I like Billy Miller. Unfortunately, I have never been a fan of Kelly Monaco, and she receives a lot of airtime and story. I like Laura Wright, and I’ve always been a fan of Maurice Benard, although, “Saint Sonny” needs to turn in his ring at some point. Unfortunately, the addition of Peter August, who I’m really not a fan of, is giving the insipid, annoying Lulu more airtime. I wish that on-demand had fast-forward,… Read more »

Lulu, Maxie (and Michael) are the key characters for the show’s future. The connections with the Spencer, Scorpio/Jones and Quartermaine families link to the show’s legacy.

The Charles Street project is not very exciting, but it sets up the mayoral race between two vets — Ned and Laura.

The only characters I like on G.H. are: Ava, Drew , Julian, Monica , Oscar, and Valentin. I use to like Alexis , but she allows too many people to tell her what to do.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Boop…On the contrary, it seems to me that the raison d’etre ala Alexis is condescendingly telling other people what to do, so much to the extent that her motto should be “Do as I say, not what I do!” Carly is another excellent example of such behavior, but Alexis really does take the cake when it comes to supreme hypocrisy.

Hi Boop…I think Alexis was just so destroyed by what Julian did to her that she both needs the advice of others to remain strong for her sobriety and her professional future. She just got her law license back and basically, her life. At the same time it’s so obvious that she still loves Julian and is fighting with herself…trying to resist the urge to give in to her feelings. Nancy Grahan, as you may know, is very political and very involved in the rights of others. I think she may, as an actress/woman…be conflicted as well as to whether… Read more »

Rebecca, I’m not sure they can get Alexis and Julian back to where they were either. One thing that would help is if he dropped the “attitude” he has been carrying around after being let out of a long jail sentence, or worse. And then consider much of his new lease on life like a form of community service to try to rehabilitate his deeds and reputation. And then maybe… And speaking of Franco…”me too”, true or not, has caught up to him in real life as well. I think what he did to Sam on GH competes with the… Read more »

Hey, Rose… I don’t know…I think Julian has tried to make himself over, just as he did when he first fell in love with Alexis, but practically everyone (with the exception of Alexis and Ava) haven’t been “receptive” to his attempts. Molly barks at him whenever she can…that sneer is really getting on my nerves! Sonny and Carly, well, you know…THEY’RE so upstanding that of course they’d judge him. Griffin, understandably can’t be in the same room as him and Sam has basically disowned him. In Julian’s defense, almost everything he did was to protect his kids…Sam was a major… Read more »

And I’m hoping she CANNOT. A slap in the face to the “MeTOO” movement and the cultural revolution happening now. Would be very poor taste to put them back together. And Julian has always looked stiff and “constipated” to me. Doesn’t seem sexy in any way.

To each her own, nancy. As I said, I think it can only be done if the Alexis believes that Julian would never harm her…and if the fans do, too. I do. However, with Friday’s episode looks like they’re possibly trying a Kim/Julian couple? Though she’ll be somehow tied to Drew…tangled webs.

And that’s why it’s a soap! 😉

@Boop…..After today’s episode, I have to add that it was superb to watch Sam giving Alexis a good piece of her mind regarding her obsessive tendencies for telling others what to do. It brought back fond memories from when Sam discovered the shocking truth that this pushy know-it-all was her birth mother, and did not take the news—-or the overbearing advice ala Alexis— at all well!!!!

I am more interested in the Jason, Drew, Franco storyline. Here is my take. It was Drew who pushed “Bobby”, Franco down the stairs. This caused Franco’s eventual brain tumor. Drew’s psychotic personality is about to “rear its ugly head !” Look out Port Charles. Ready to “save the day”, Jason, of course !!!!
Also, I think that we all know ,Peter, the new COO at Aurora is P.K. Sinclair. Faison’s other son !

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

Courtesy/ABC

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Photo: ABC

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”
