General Hospital Delivers Super-Sized Promo: The Truth About Wiley To Be Revealed

Courtesy/ABC

This week, General Hospital is going full-tilt set to deliver the moment that fans of the show have been waiting for since back in September 2018, when on one fateful night  …

(Cliff Notes version here) Brad and Lucas’s adopted child dies, Nelle gives birth in the woods with an assist from Liesl. Brad and Nelle comes face to face on the road; the two switch babies and keep the long-held secret that Brad and Lucas are actually raising Nelle and Michael’s bio-son. Meanwhile, Willow thinks she is Wiley’s birth mother, having no idea, that her baby died with Brad.

Julian has been in on the secret, and when Brad finally revealed to Lucas the truth about Wiley, it caused their car to crash (Remember: Kendra who in the other car, who was trying to kill Alexis) which has left Lucas with only fragmented memories of that night.

Realizing everything is getting too close for comfort for the truth to come out; Brad accepts a job in Portland and is moving with Lucas and Wiley, while Nelle is selling her shares of ELQ to Valentin to get out of dodge too, so she can follow them, we think.

But in one of the best promo’s we have ever seen for a daytime drama series, as you see below; will Lucas remember and reveal the truth to Michael?

From the cast credits at the end of the promo, to the setting up of the tale, this is one promo not to be missed.  Check it out below.

Now, let us know, how you think the truth will come to light that Michael will find out he is Wiley (AKA Jonah) biological father and that their was a baby switch? Will it be as teased in the promo, or some other way? Comment below.

Nelle will take the baby and run after the child survives a plane crash that kills Brad and Lucas…Willow has a breakdown and is in an accident..she needs blood and Nina has her type…as does Sasha..Willow and Sasha are revealed as fraternal twins of Nina…Chase gives Chase(LOL) after Nelle with Micheal and Sasha not far behind…Nelle and the baby go over a cliff and their car plunges into the ocean..Chase and Micheal rescues the baby but Nelle is missing and presumed drowned..Lucas and an injured Brad turn up alive…Willow still believes the baby is really hers and makes a play… Read more »

Oh, Jimh, I couldn’t pull up the real promo, so I’m playing yours out in my head. Nothing is really out of the realm of possibility! But I do like Willow & Chase together and I want Brad & Lucas to survive this reveal, however unlikely. It’s been a long time coming…let’s hope they don’t screw it up.

Sometimes i like to make out a story of my own…and the one on Days came true..that Julie’s son David and Valerie would have a son together and i did send that idea to Corday years ago!!!

WOW, Jimmy!!—–you always read my mind—-how long have I been saying ( actually we both did….since forever) Willow and Sasha were twins?…..albeit, I admit I was soooo far off with Kiki. Not my fault. The writers steered me in that direction. LOL.
Hey, don’t sell yourself short—everything you said has roots and legs, my friend.

Neither am I, Jimmy–neither am I. My back hurts. LOL.
You”re right—-we all know Nina has a daughter out there—what if it’s a son?
Whoever it is, should be known—been dragging since Nina first made an appearance. Years ago. When plots linger and linger in limbo, the thrill dissipates. The interest wanes. That’s my opinion.
The same with the Wiley drama—or should I say; trauma!! How long? When he’s an adult and ends up marrying a future sibling of whom he will not be aware he has?

Awesome promo. This is probably my favorite storyline on GH during the last 1.5 years. Nelle is a great villain.

Ugh.

Another baby switch story wasted with a speedy wrap-up. If a show is going to invest in a baby switch then have the good sense to back burner it and let it simmer for a decade or so. There would be infinitely more drama in Wiley being ripped from the only fathers he’s ever known and forced to live with Michael and his career criminal family if he was actually old enough to realize the raw deal he was getting.

For some reason, I thought this story started in the summer of 2018? Whatever, it has been a very long story and I wanted it to play like this. FINALLY a story that wasn’t rushed and had us praying for the payoff but not getting it until the writers felt it was going on long enough. The old way of telling stories. All I can say is BRAVO to everyone involved in this from the actors to the writers. I know alot of people wanted this to end some time ago but most stories are told that way nowadays so… Read more »

It did start on July 31, 2018. I don’t know why they said September 2018. It began on July 31, 2018. I don’t like how GH drug out the baby switch for a year and a half. Thankfully it finally ended on February 19, 2020.

Amazing that they gave the promo so much time and extra props for tagging the actors’ names at the end. Can’t wait to see this play out. It won’t just be one show; it’ll linger with consequences for a really long time (if they’re smart).

Why did they make the Wiley reveal all about Carly? Lucas, Michael (heck, even Bobbie) should have played more prominently as they had more impact.

Nelle vs Willow was a darn good fight.

Good question the answer is she is the pet and when I read about it I deleted it! The show insulted our intelligence Lucas should have been the one crying and expressing his hurt his anger why does every story have to center around Carly and Sonny her screaming gosh I dislike her character and LW overacting just drives me nuts now I guess your token gay couple that they have never truly written for just leaves the canvas while Michael no back bone at all let’s Mommy do his work for him! Ugh

Boop

General Hospital insults our intelligence constantly by allowing Carly too much power over other people’s lives. As I tell those with whom I converse , this show would fire me the same day because these overly power hunger characters such as Carly , Jason ,Sonny , Sam ,and whoever else- would avoid me as if I had a serious disease after I tell them some things that they don’t want to hear ! As Carly and the others are written boldly , write the other characters with a backbone , also.

Celia
Guest

Absolutely, Boop—most to-the-point post yet!! Have you noticed how as soon as Carly “accepted” Sasha, everyone else followed suit? The queen hath spoken; ergo it must be so. The conformity; the kowtowing , the subservience to these “elites” is laughable. I could understand if there were some kind of omnipotent aura—-a specialty ( well, I will concede Laura her skill–albeit exagerated) that would leave my mouth agape—–no star-sruck fan here. Sam? Sonny? Jason? C’est dommage—give me Ava all day…. never a dull moment; the ultimate character with charm, finesse, style, that touch of evil and charisma.

Boop

Celia, I agree with what you said about Sasha ; I also thought about how Carly accepted Sasha by saying that she reminded her of herself. I don’t understand why she couldn’t see some of herself in Nell. After , I saw Michael walk out of that house with the baby, I was done with General Hospital until I see some of my favorites win some battles.( Ava, Valentin, Julian ,etc.) Now that Taggart is back , hopefully , he won’t become a Sonny worshiper. I didn’t like him when he was at G.H. before ; it wasn’t because he… Read more »

Yeah, Boop, hypocrisy abounds in PC. From what I’ve heard about Carly, I don’t see any parallels between her and Sasha. Sasha happened to be at the wrong place at the right time for herself and Valentin. I’ve always liked her —-whatever she did was not from malicious intent—she ‘got’ caught up within the imbroglio. Nelle, on the other hand, as Carly, leaves a lot to be desired. Yet, the PTB ‘forgive’ Carly’s shortcomings, to put it mildly, so similar to Nelle’s, by giving her distorted dominance a pass. I said earlier that TPTB stir the cauldron—I changed my mind.… Read more »

Exaggerated—sp.
I wonder, was the original Carly put on such a pedestal? I’ve only been watching for five years—–is it because she’s married to Sonny?
——which begs the question—–what is so special about Sonny; the sainted mafioso quasi-warrior.? Poor example of a true malvivente. I guess Bonaparte has his day, too.

Carly is both Michael’s mother and Lucas’s sister, so she had every right to jump down Brad’s throat.

Though I suspect the real motive here was to assemble the future murder suspects when Nelle eventually gets her long overdue relocation to Hell.

We’re looking forward to seeing her!

Boop

Well, Satan , she should take Michael , Carly , and Sonny with her. The way that you like Carly and family , I like anyone anti – Carly and family.

I agree with you about Carly’s role. General Hospital gives Carly too much say in other people’s lives. If G.H. doesn’t change doesn’t write for everyone , I’m planning to stop watching.

If G.H. doesn’t attempt to please the other fans of the show, I’m planning to stop watching . Sonny and his group are always winning -while everyone else suffers. I left the show a few years back when Sonny was allowed more power than the Quartermains . In reality , I know that mobsters had/have power ; however, they knew/know not to flaunt it in front of the police , government , and society. Plus, the writers have everyone running scare of Sonny ; real life gangsters exhibit their power : win, lose , or draw. I’ve seen the Godfather… Read more »

Which “other fans” should they be “trying to please”?? Jason has been a character since 1982, and an ACTUAL speaking character since 1991. Sonny has been around since 1993 & Carly since 1997 or so. The Steve Hardy/Lee Baldwin OG generation are pretty much all dead & gone. No way to bring them back. All the interlopers hired by Valentini since 2012 are completely useless, with few exceptions (and none of those exceptions are named Frodd, Ava, Whiny Heiny, or Ohbrect!). So exactly which other characters should they be writing for? Hell, I think it’s actually a good thing they… Read more »

Believe it or not ,there are other fans who aren’t onboard with the mob and family; those are the ones of whom I’m referring .( which you know ) I never cared for Taggert when he was there before; however, it’s hard for me to believe that he will work with Sonny. Some of the characters who you named , I like ; I didn’t say love.
I’ve written this before , I applaud Carly for sticking with Sonny regardless of what the circumstances are; other characters should learn from them about what it means for better – for worse.

Boop I guess it’s adious to you then, because the things and people you hate are the main thread of GH. It has always been this way. Different times and same type of characters. I have been watching from the beginning, and I thought at first as you and others do, about the Corinthos, but I have since accepted that Sonny and Jason are good people that do bad things. There seem to be some of the same characters on every soap. It’s always been that way and I’ve been watching soaps for over 60 years. Carly for instance is… Read more »

I understand about how you feel , Violet; however, just as Carly forcefully states her opinion , the other characters should be afforded the same privilege . I appreciate that you have been watching for sixty years , I’ve been watching about the same number of years. As a child, I sat with my aunt and watched all of the old Soaps- from Guiding Light , As the World Turns , Love Of Life , Edge of Night , on and on. Yes, each show has a character that wears on the nerves ; however, I still don’t the writers… Read more »

That’s a direct contradiction, Miss Violet. Good people who do bad things? There is no good in murder. EVER, Nonetheless, I do agree that all soaps are guilty of this good-bad personae. …..oxymoron.
I don’t like Sonny. I don’t like Jason. I don’t like Sam. I can tolerate Carly because Laura is truly talented, albeit overbearing.
Granted, that is my problem. LOL.
General Hospital is an Orwellian Society. Bunch of hypocrites to boot. Do as I say and not as I do mindset.

Hi Celia Nice hearing from you after so long. Uh oh! Guess you thought the old lady needed a time out huh? Well, sorry we don’t see eye to eye, but I have lived a long life and have learned that there are very few things that can be painted as just black or white. Some people can be shown in the most favorable light, but are actually horrible human beings. Of course I don’t condone murder, but it doesn’t mean they haven’t done some good deeds or acts of kindness in their lives. I also know we can’t see… Read more »

Hello, Miss V—-nah , didn’t think that, sweet lady. I actually thought you were still having problems getting through. Agreed….good people do make mistakes ( we’re human—not perfect) but, murder is not a mistake. …unless it’s self defence or protecting another————–Especially when such a crime is someone’s livelihood. Case in point–Sonny, Julian, Jason etc. without repenting. Tell you a story— my husband’s family’s good friend’s daughter ( are you confused yet?) was arrested in one of Boston’s many Universities. She’s a good girl but did a bad thing. She had a fight with her boyfriend and threw a glass at… Read more »

This week was as good as I hoped. I thought Katelyn MacMullen really delivered. The scenes between William DeVry and Maura West were unexpected and of course really good. When Lucas hands Wiley to Michael and both actors look crushed, it really hit the right note. My only complaint with this storyline is making the gay asian character the bad guy. Such an obvious and stereotypical trope to perpetuate – the one-dimensional, self-absorbed gay bad guy. Very 1980s. BTW, has anyone else noticed that soaps are in the process of writing off the handful of queer characters they had, after… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL 15000th Episode: Laura Faces Being Ousted as Mayor as Port Charles Bands Together in Support of Her

Finally, after many preemptions, General Hospital’s 15,000the episode aired on Wednesday. In it and front and center in the standalone episode was GH icon, Genie Francis (Laura).

In story, after a scathing op-ed is run in The Invader from a group of citizens called “The Friend of Port Charles”, they take aim at Mayor Laura Collins and want a recall to replace her. When trying to figure out who was behind the story, Laura’s friends and the citizens of the town, band together to keep her from being ousted and to figure out who would attack her in the press like this.

That sets up a few sentimental flashback clips featuring the three current longest-running members of the cast, Genie, Kin Shriner (Scott) and Jackie Zeman (Bobbie).  Viewers get a glimpse of Scotty and Laura’s wedding, and then Bobbie’s contentious and duplicitous side when she fought for the love of Scotty against a teenaged Laura.

As Laura tries to determine who is behind the op-ed, Curtis (Donnell Turner) gets a lead from Ms. Wu (Lydia Look) that Laura’s half-brother, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) is behind it.  Laura then heads to Pentonville to confront Cyrus.  She asks if he’s the brains behind “The Friends of Port Charles”.

Cyrus insists he is only an advisor. He goes on to say that this is a group of people who are disillusioned by the way she is running the town.  Cyrus gets angry and vengeful, and emotional, when saying the police department is corrupt and how ELQ and Cassadine Industries gets tax breaks at the expense of less fortunate people, etc.  Laura can’t figure out if these people in the ‘friends’ group have such high moral value why would they hire a criminal, like him, as an advisor?

Renault goes on to say that it’s up to God and preaches she needs to be less self-righteous.  Laura throws back to Cyrus that where was God in that scathing op-ed, that he did filled with such hate?  Laura then forgives him and walks out, which stuns Cyrus.

Photo: ABC

Later, Scotty in front of Laura, Bobbie, Anna (Finola Hughes), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Lucy (Lynn Herring), proposes to Liesl (Kathleen Gati), but she turns down his marriage proposal.  Liesl feels they have a good thing going , so why mess it up with a marriage at this point. The two kiss.

In addition, Laura meets up with Maxie (Kirsten Storms), who are visiting an institutionalized Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).  Maxie brings her some cosmetics from Deception because of the bad lighting in the facility.

The softball game was the throughline of the episode, and at the end, we saw the payoff, when all the characters converged on Charlie’s giving their support to Laura, who says she is ready to write her rebuttal.

Then in a voice-over from Laura, she speaks to the essence of Port Charles and its residents which included: that they have a strong community that she is proud to be a part of it and she speaks to her legacy over generations.  Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) proposes a toast to Laura, as she notes that if she loses the recall then so be it, adding that if the person who replaces her is a Port Charles lifer, like she is, then the town will continue to prosper.

So, what did you think of the 15,000 episode milestone episode? Did you enjoy the performance of Genie Francis? Did you like the way much of the cast was utilized, or did you feel otherwise? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH’s Finola Hughes, Marcus Coloma & Josh Swickard Talk On 15,000th Episode Milestone

The juggernaut that is ABC’s General Hospital, is marking yet another accomplishment in its storied 59-year-history.  The iconic soap opera is set to air on Wednesday, June 22nd (unless preempted), its 15,000th episode.

As part of the celebration, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas Cassadine) and Josh Swickard (Chase), who all appear in the standalone episode, chat with Michael Fairman to mark the occasion.

During the conversation now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Finola and Marcus, and later Josh, who logged on later while at Disneyland, discuss: their beginnings on GH from landing their respective roles, who in the cast perhaps most intimated them, at first, and what it has meant to be part of the legacy of General Hospital.  In addition, Finola, Marcus, and Josh reveal some of their more challenging storylines, and more.

Photo: ABC

Later, the trio each gives us a tease of what’s to come now that Nikolas has slept with Esme (Avery Pohl), what lies ahead for Anna and her love-interest Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and Josh talks on working with his on-screen love-interest, Amanda Setton (Brook Lynn Quartermaine).

Watch for a special appearance by GH’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) within the interview, as we do a deep-dive of being part of the ensemble cast.

We also take a moment to send out our condolences to Kristina (Felicia) and Jack Wagner (Ex-Frisco) on the passing of their son, Harrison, and how you can donate to the scholarship fund in his honor.

Check out our GH 15K interview with Finola, Marcus, and Josh below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more upcoming features, interviews, and upcoming Daytime Emmy red carpet coverage.
