GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Charms Liz, Sam Faints, Jax & Carly Don't See Eye To Eye!



On Monday’s episode of GH, Franco (Roger Howarth) takes Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) to his ominous art studio.  He tells Liz for him the art studio is a safe and private place away from the noise of the world.

Franco goes on to tell Liz he has been painting a lot lately, and that he was inspired to paint a portrait of her!  Liz is so impressed by Franco’s work.  She is touched and intrigued by him.  As the two of them are getting to know each other and their mutual attraction to each other is evident,  Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and Valerie (Brytni Sarpy) are looking for Franco, as all clues point to that Franco could indeed be the hospital patient serial killer.  When they get wind that Liz is with Franco at his art studio, they show up at the door and begin the process of putting a damper on Franco and Liz’s burgeoning date.


Back on Cassadine Island, we learn that Jason (Billy Miller) landed the plane but it then exploded, and so far he is so nowhere to be found.  Sam (Kelly Monaco) wants to keep looking, while Ava (Maura Weat) wants the group to find their way off the island as soon as possible.

She tells Sam she must face the reality that Jason may have perished.  Sam fires back at Ava that is something she just will not accept.  Next thing you know as she is determined to go look for Jason herself, Sam passes out in Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) arms.

Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) arrives in Port Charles and chats it up with Finn (Michael Easton).  Carly (Laura Wright) arrives upon the scene and is stunned to see her ex back in town.  When the two of them have a moment to talk about the solving of the mystery of Josslyn’s kidney donor, it is clear Jax is trying to desuade Carly from her search.  She swears to Jax that she’s respecting Josslyn’s wishes and not pursuing it any further, but Jax knows Carly.   He can tell she is lying through her teeth.

So, what did you think of Franco and Liz’s art studio date? Why do you think Sam is passing out?  Will Jax and Carly come together to solve the Josslyn kidney donor mystery?  Will Jason just reappear A. O.K?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Sam is either pregnant or she has come down with a foreign mystery illness. If it’s the latter: If she ever makes it back to Port Charles, Dr. Finn will properly diagnose her and treat her.

She’s probably pregnant. Nina will end up with that kid somehow.

pregnant? she barely takes care of the one she’s got, why give her another one? i prefer if she came down w/ some foreign virus that way she would have to be isolated from everyone.

I’m with you, Marie….same old, same old. No matter how hard TPTB try to make this character interesting; she fails big time with me. No personality. Are we to feel empathy?
Funny how women pass out on the onset of pregnancy. How often does this happen? I have never fainted, pregnant or otherwise.
And, Jason? Well, Marie….I doubt any of us believed he was dead. The guy has nine lives, so we all knew he’d turn up sooner or later. Who cares? Been there done that….super hero piloted an airplane (wonder of all wonders), saved everyone on board and then ‘quashed’ the hungry flames before the plane exploded? Yeah, right! Okey-Dokey.
Dr. Finn to the rescue. Of course, there needs to be a patient with a tropical disease ( same as his) to make it believable. Perhaps all of the “lost on Devil’s Island” have caught that disease and then they will all get hooked on that ‘stuff’ Finn takes.
To top it all off, all of them will be beholden to Sonny, the provider of the miraculous drug. MY HERO!!

Very good Celia- we all knew that Jason was going to be alive and the hero once again ( prop, prop). He flies a plane – never had a lesson, but remembers how. I was actually waiting for Jason to arrive with them carrying groceries from a store and having a hotel room rented for them to all stay in till rescued.
According to the way things are written lately.

Thank you, Angel.
You made me smile with the imaginary groceries ‘s ‘skit’, et al.

i think these are “skills” he was trained to do when under Helena’s control, which is why he can’t remember why or how he knows certain things, but he instinctively knows he does.

@CeeCee…”No matter how hard TPTB try to make this character interesting, she fails big time with me.” That’s exactly the way I feel about Nina!

Hey, Shaybelle. LOL. I get it, believe me, I get it!!!!! Thing is I have come to love Kelly Monaco. She’s sweet and down to earth. And, as I have said, TPTB need to step-up both Sam and Michelle.
It’s healthy to disagree as long as we do not throw punches, mia bella.
By the by? I have a feeling Nik will show up at Ava’s. ….never know; he may already be hiding in her apartment/condo. LOL….XXOO.

@CeeCeeGirl…Oh, I hear you!!!!! Just wanted to quickly respond here (again) to let you know that I’ve repeatedly sent you replies which failed to post…once before in this spot and twice on the “Roger” page. This leaves the impression that I’ve given your thoughts the cold shoulder, and such is most certainly not the case. “All is well,” indeed….we’re cool. I just wish that I could send you a personal message so that you would know that I do understand—I “get it”—but alas, even that request was apparently denied the last time. However, with a bit of luck, you’ll get this little note in your inbox, although it’s not nearly as detailed as I would prefer….best kept brief, I guess! Later, mia amica!

When was the last time those people ate or drank something? Maybe Sam just is the weakest link.

Roger and Becky have great chemistry. Franco and Liz though, are very creepy given their history.

Yesterday they had all the arrows pointing at Jax as the culprit. I am just very afraid to ask how that all ties in with Jake’s kidnapping though.

I agree Franco and Elizabeth do not mesh, him and Nina were fantastic together.

I see Jax knowing the truth all along about what happened to Jake- knowing him- probably helped with it.

We do think alike, Angel. I said the same thing. Jax is hiding an essential, if not the most important piece to this ‘kidney’ puzzle issue. He knows more than he’s letting on.

Jax? Do you mean he helped to conceal things…or that he really helped. Jax is a good guy and would never hurt a child.

They better not repeat the pattern of vilifying Jax in order to prop up Sonny.

no preg for sam please…let her be ill…let finn be hero and save predictable yawn stuff…hope luke isnt retyrnin

Laura never opened that damn letter he left her!

hope amy is the killer

That’s what I’m thinkin, but GH writers don’t like it when the fans figure out their oh so predictable plot lines. We knew the older gray-haired doctor was the killer, but we ALL figured that out, so they kill him and extend the stupid sl because they’re offended that we aren’t as dumb as they think.

I had to wonder if Amy is the killer but also Josslyn’s donor. The way the writers are on soaps these days, Amy could get busted for playing God with human lives but at the same time, get off the hook without any punishment because of her good deed saving a little girl’s life. Hey, weirder things have happened on our stories!!!

Really loving Friz. Great new pairing.

Friz? Has that been out there or did u just think it up? Lol…I like them too. If they actually let this couple evolve they could be great together as Elizabeth is an artist too. Great fun I would think to share that passion and it would get Luz painting again.

I like em too. I wish Roger was not Franco, but it is what it is.
I especially like it when Franco and LIzzy discuss art theory and the Impressionists.

Great to see Jax back. What a pro! Michael Easton is good but Ingo made Michael look like a school boy!

Enough with the lizard! We get that Finn is weird!

Cheap sets continue, Franco’s Cave was a joke! Remember when James Franco was on, his studio was big and freakie!

How about JorDUMB bitching at Amy about her peeking into the police record that she instructed Amy to deliver only! First of all, why give an official police report to a civilian? Secondly, its AMY!

And how to Jordan and Valerie find Franco’s lair?

The Super cops are wasting their time, Andre is the killer! You watch, Amy will turn up dead and Franco will get arrested BUT it will end up that Andre committed these heinous crimes!

Gilligans Island needs to end! It is so weak! Valentin is a bust! [No, I’m not talking about you Sam!]

Oh my gosh would you please stop I can’t take anymore of this great sarcasm I am rolling on the floor!you are getting too good at this!!!

K-ster, the longer I live the more I learn to laugh at life instead of fretting over things I have no control over.

I’m actually really liking Valentin, and am intrigued to see what his plan is! Since he and Nina slept together on Tuesday’s episode, I’m curious as to how she fits into it. Plus, it gives Nina a storyline (which she badly needs) and the two have great chemistry together.

Well, you know Nina will get pregnant with a Cassadine baby.

@T I love it just keep it coming you are hysterical without being mean as everybody thinks now days it is fun to laugh at the absurd things that happen on soaps I am very disappointed in the storylines but when I read your sarcasm it makes me smile. Kudos

forced chemistry next they will pair her with the town cat please quit trying soon hatd

So hard sorry!

I am sad not going to watch anymore can’t deal with this good luck to all of you who can

I never gave Andre a second thought, my Timmmy. But, perhaps this is the idea….steer culpability away from Andre.
Good call, my guy…..never liked shifty Andre, anyway.
I also agree that Valentin is a bust. I am so disappointed. But, I must admit this is my own fault. I put too much emphasis on how ‘evil’ or supremely ‘fantastico’ a new character should be like in behavior, looks etc.
Valentin has not met my expectations. And, the fact that Nina fell into bed with him( as sweaty and fraught with heavy breathing ad it may have been), I wanted La Nina to do the love dance with Curtis.
I pray, the writers make this ‘incident’ a passing fancy for Nina.

Never liked Andre either. JELLY stated in an interview that the killer would be someone you wouldnt expect. I wouldnt expect him.

I think the biggest problem with Valentin is Helena said he is the worst of the bunch! Well, so far, what has he done? He shot Nick. Well, we know he is alive. He shot Kevin. Well, he and Laura are falling for each other so Kevin will not die. AND, to top it off, he got to tap a super HOT cougar! I’m not afraid of him, I’m envious! You want devious, have him kill Sabs, Crychael and JorDUMB and then make him a serial killer on the run where he stops in Genoa City and takes out Glummer and Puka!

Later love.

@CeeCee….I definitely could buy Andre as the culprit behind the hospital killings….sometimes psychiatrists are the nuttiest ones in the bunch!!!! Quite frankly, there was always something about him from the fore that created a feeling of personal unease….although I couldn’t put my finger on it! I’m just so glad that Anna wasn’t more engaged with this creepy character….the fact that not-so-intrepid police commissioner Jordan has had the wool pulled over her eyes where this guy is concerned just goes to show how truly inept she is in her job….no intuition whatsoever! Having said that, I also agree over your disappointment with Valentin….I was expecting a suave, smooth criminal just oozing with a mirthful sense of menace….typically Cassadine, in other words, and what we have seen thus far is quite off the mark! As for his rumpy-pumpy with Nina, I was appalled…..she is so darn needy and gullible—it’s not even funny anymore—and I can only guess that there was some method to the sexual madness for Valentin….he must have known that was Liesl’s niece he was slamming between the sheets???? But why???? By the way, isn’t it good that GH has finally gotten around to an STI storyline????….Certainly about time! The entire town has been “at risk” for how long now????

Ok saw why is Josselyn ten years older then Spencer?

Josselyn was an infant when this transplant happened now she is that much older then Spencer and Jake this is total crap

Uhm Dante and Sam look kind of pretty together

Well, they both share the same lackluster skill set of detective and private investigator. Dante, not sure he’s ever cracked a case. Sam, her investigator skills leave A LOT to be desired.

Perfect, dmr.

lol, hey i noticed that too, of course nothing will ever happen, but they do look good together.

I caught that too MT. They meshed together nicely.

One thing I take serious issue with in the Fiz pairing is that Liz has been horribly raped before and at a very young age, so why do they insist in having Franco trap her in enclosed areas where she seemingly has no way of escape. Rape is not a subject to take lightly and the writers should respect this character’s history with that. He pulls the stop button on the elevator, he takes her to some darkened studio and they make a point of zooming in on him locking, chaining and bolting the door like the Hulk was about to come busting theough at any moment. It’s asinine that Elizabeth would remain so calm and collected considering both of their pasts. Didn’t appreciate that and don’t care for the pairing. He hovers over her and I don’t find them attractive together. She should’ve been paired with Griffin. Grizz for the win!!!

I could not agree more. It’s absolutely disgusting to pair a rapist with a rape victim. Actually, it’s disgusting to pair a rapist with anyone, but I digress. The constant harping on his trapping her and the suggestion on the part of the show that he might do something to harm her is gross, distasteful, and honestly irresponsible. It’s 2016; the show writers should know better.

thing is;
It is not real..
it is fictional stories.
no one was actually raped
it’s just storytelling. So it really makes no difference was because time has moved on into now stories.

Thing is, fiction is a reflection of reality and shapes the way people see the world. It’s irresponsible storytelling. Look at the recent Stanford rape trial to see rape culture in action. Fiction isn’t produced in a vacuum; it’s informed by and informs culture. In 2016, I would have thought we’d moved past pairing rapists with rape victims.

You bet, Kristin.
You have just reenforced my philosophy. Everything generated on TV, movies, books etc. reflects reality and influences society.
My dear su, we all know it’s a soap….but, if we are to follow a story; a semblance of respect for the viewer is expected.
You are too forgiving, SuzieQ.

I understand your point and would ordinarily agree but I think it was established that :

A) he did act out due to his tumor and
B) he didn’t rape anyone. He made Sam THINK he raped her but didn’t and if he was telling the truth didn’t tell the actual rapist to hurt Michael…just scare him to get to Jason. Do I remember this correctly? What I don’t remember is if he actually killed people. THATI think he actual did, but again, big leap of faith for Carly, then Nina, Kiki and now Liz to believe he wasn’t in control of those acts. We need to believe that too if we are rooting for him, which I am.

Good post and great point!

Yes, you have a point- but I see it as showing Elizabeth’s strengths.
Even after going through all she did- she survived and is stronger for it.
They showed her a little uneasy with the situation–but she didn’t fall apart- she kept her wits about her and stood strong.
Elizabeth is not a push – over, she can handle Franco and as a nurse she realizes what Franco was in his past was due to a tumor..and she is giving him the benefit of the doubt now.
He has done nothing to her to make her mistrust him or even show any signs of wanting to hurt her. I truly believe his feeling for her would make him do anything to protect her–including stand up to Jason when he gets back and starts being the obnoxious character he has turned into.
Jason was a decent , loving guy before he found out who he was. Even with Helena’s implant–he did what he dad /directed to do- but he regretted it and tried to make it right.
Now – uncontrolled – he flies off the handle for every little thing. He is more dangerous now than he was under Helena’s control.
Another ruined character.

Good for you, Angel. Great post! Intuitive!!

Why is Nina wearing her vagina on her sleeve? Can she get a pet or something?!?!?! I mean if it moves–she’s a flirtin with it! Run Roxy run!!!


Stafford and Howarth got the “Great actor, terrible character” disease!

You would be mistaken, JK……. I, among many, vote for Nina to stay. Viva Michelle Stafford!!!!!
Love her forever.

Speaking of Roxie. She is not the original. Doesn’t she look like an Albino, baby gila monster?

So, CeeCee, has the role of Roxie has been recast?….Perhaps the showrunners want to take her character in a different direction! (You know, less “service pet,” and more “independent lizard?” Maybe she’ll even leave Finn for Sonny….) Just a thought……

Yes, Shaybelle.
Lol….I did mention on another post that Roxie broke up with Finn. She moved on….. to ‘greener’ pastures.
I liked the original Roxie better. This one has no personality, don’t you think? Her coloring is so dull. HaHa!!

Word is they are having the same problem with Roxie as they are having with Billy over at Y&R! The original Roxie rules!

Good one, Timmmy. Love the analogy between Roxie and Billy.

@Letemeatc8ke…..Somebody had to pick up the show’s sexual slack whilst Alexis gives her lady parts a rest, so I guess Nina drew the short straw!

Lol, yeah Shay, Alexis has been called on to perform some Olympic sized work outs. No offense to Valentine with the “short straw” comment, I’m sure.

Shay, my dear friend,
I have answered you, as well….but, I see the post did not make. Sobeit. Again, “all’s well”.
I leave it up to the moderators to use their discretion.

OMG!@Letemeatc8ke! It never occurred to me that Valentin may have been underwhelming in the manhood department…..I just meant that it was time for some other post-menopausal minx to go to town beneath the bedsheets now that an exhausted Alexis is taking a well-deserved break from her overactive libido, and it would seem that Nina has been selected as GH’s designated “back-up” floozy from the over-50 set! (Not that either Anna or Laura could ever be suitable candidates, but I suppose the desperate for attention Lucy Coe would always be up for another “walk of shame” escapade, especially given that she’s back to hanging out with Scotty!)

I am embarrassed for GH ..
It is so very dull…. uneventful, stale and dry.

A plane crash we didn’t see lol ..
no one slightly injured ..
and a whole show of them standing on sand doing absolutely nothing.

They were on Cassidine Island, a very dangerous place where the devil himself Valentin was with his hitmen and nothing. No excitement, none.
Nickols shot, no drama to it and fell out a window, then nothing lol
whatshisname shot and Laura took a bullet out, no drama to it just scary red hands.

GH has lost itself ..
It no longer has an identity as the most exciting hard drama on the edge soap.
GH has become horribly empty of everything that made it great.

((( and soon the ratings will reflect that fact.

Franco is being written as a pet stone and Liz has become quite dull standing around doing nothing much.

Jason is still being written as Jake with muscle and spine.

Sam needs to dump her platform boots with 5 inch heels, she looks/is ridiculous wearing them every second.. She is short, she is little, own it .
Stop trying to make her tall, she is not, she is short. Nothing wrong with that. KILL the 6” heels!
they are ridiculously stupid looking.
If she is pregnant she will lose the baby. Another baby drama story, so hope not.
And— being she is just passing out she is not pregnant .. she has no sickness..
Pregnant women faint and puke, they puke a lot, not Sam..
Whatever she has Dr. Finn will be put in her orbit for a story.

Anyways GH has become unrecognizable..
It is stupidly lame ….. and a total snooze fest.
The Queens of Snooze need to be fired.

how would you know that GH has become unrecognizable? you claim Laura isn’t a Vet, and the only writer whose work your impress with is Ron C. wish most of us long time vets grew to not respect, you need to understand he’s not coming back, he burn his bridges and although Gh isn’t fully at its best yet, it has a better chance with Roc C gone thats for sure.

Hi aria ..
you have not read correctly..
I have never ever said Genie/Laura was not a vet.
I said– to me she is avnewbie…
I have not watched GH for 45 years and was not watching during the era of Luke and Laura, she is new to me.

And– you are again wrong..
I was greatly impressed with Guza and Ron, both.

Never say never on a RC return 🙂

I’m actually enjoying the show and love that we”re seeing Scott, Lucy, Jax..keep em coming please. I like the mix of vets and newbies and am into most oif the characters and their stories. Yeah, it’s a juggling act but I don’t mind it. If they focused on only one story that I found boring that’d be different. But I kinda like em all…

Agreed, su. Why didn’t Sam take off her spiky-heeled booties? Ava did. I like what you said…” She is little, she is short, own it” . From a ‘little, short’ woman, myself….I appreciate that. I own it, su.
Liz may not have much to do…But, she is so beautiful…..such natural, fresh beauty.

@Celia….I’m convinced that Sam’s stiletto booties can only be removed via surgical means because, yes, she is that attached to them!!!!

Shay, that is so ‘cutely’ hilarious. I think you’re right.
Let’s face it….we all wear stilettos some time or other. But, there’s a time and place for everything.
I wonder if Kelly wears them to/at the beach.
She has such a cute, little body, she needs no enhancement.

He doesn’t know her anymore, shes changed a lot & does NOT lie like she used to & he has no right to tell her what to do when she does all the parenting & he just takes the kid on vacations, wasn’t even really around during the transplant I hate that arrogant sob & this short visit isn’t short enough day 2 & wish Sonny would kill him

Hahahaha, yessss!!!

Loved the Friz date! I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how great this pairing is. Roger and Becky have my attention!

Mine too!

Very sweet, these two are. Franco is genuine…Liz, still a little hesitant, for lack of a better word. But, ‘willing’ just the same.
I just wish Franco had ‘handled’ Nina a little more delicately. I am over it, though, as I am rooting for Nina and Curtis.

Yes, Celia!

Is it me, or did anyone else think Franco’s studio was Sabrina’s and Felix’s old apartment with a lot stuff thrown into it– maybe when they do a search of the place they might find Felix’s sister who went into a bedroom and was never seen again

It’s not you. They reuse sets a lot to save money.

Yep, I noticed, too. They should’ve said it was in the same bldg., to explain its appearance. It’s just like Liz’s new house being a retooled version of the old Webber house, most recently owned by Mac and Felicia before it burnt down.

Did S&F’s apt come before Liz’s art studio, cause it used to be that, as well.

the island storyline is getting boring. I dont think Franco is the serial killer. Maybe its that nurse Amy as she knows everything going on around GH.

It was really refreshing to see Jax again. I really miss Ingo and wish he would return full time. And for that matter, bring back Vanessa Marcil as Brenda too. They are both much more compelling than half the characters on the show.

I’m really liking Franco and Liz together, which surprises me to say because I never thought of them as a couple before. I was a huge Nina and Franco fan, but now I’m intrigued to see where “Friz” will go, and how Nina will fit into Valentin’s plan.

I think Andre is the killer. He’s been suspiciously MIA during all of the killings, and seems to be withholding something from Jordan. I hope his next two victims are Amy because she is intolerably annoying, and Valerie because she’s a useless character, and seeing her walk around in a cop uniform is hilariously pathetic.

As for the Island Crew, Sam is probably pregnant or sick, and I think Kevin will be fine, considering how much fanfare the potential Laura/Kevin pairing has gotten. I just want them off the island because they’ve been trapped there far too long. It seems like it’s been the same night on the island since the beginning of July.

hey Jimmy..
Sam is not pregnant.
She is not throwing up, morning sickness.
you can’t be pregnant without the throwing up, often .

she has whichever deadly illness that Finn can cure..

Not true, su. A woman may be nauseous without vomiting (ever) in her first trimester of pregnancy. Not everyone “throws up”. I did not.

Yeah, they sign Ingo and Vanessa and we will never see them! It took Laura OVER a year to get on screen more than once a week! FV likes HIS people only!

What cracked me up was when Liz asked, “Where are we?” Really Liz, you don’t remember the studio you actually had for quiet a few years. The one you screwed around with Jason in and screwed around on Lucky. It’s almost the exact set.

I thought the Franco studio was Sabrina & Felix’s old place reused.

I thought it was Dante and Lulu’s old loft, hahaha.

The killer is either Nurse Amy or Dr. Maddox.

Is Franco’s art studio Dante and Lulu’s old loft? Sam faints? Who cares. Sam’s monotone and investigator skills leave A LOT to be desired.

Unless Gh is going to rewrite history —yet again to prop Jasam ( killing Jake wasn’t enough) Sam cannot be pregnant again. Before Danny was born- sam was told by the Drs. that her eggs ( way back then even) were only 10% viable and she would never be pregnant. She was told to adopt if wanted a child. But miracle of miracles – along comes Danny. Now are we going to have another miracle child –years later? Maybe the writers need to hand out this “miracle cure” to all the women out there watching the show- who have the same problem and are dying to have a child and can’t – how this is accomplished so easily.
New writers may not know the past–but viewers do !
We know the main theme now is to prop Jason and sam , no matter what it takes and how unbelievable it is….but can’t you at least try to hide your favoritism? You know there are more than one group of people watching the show –and according to the ratings lately- you aren’t backing the right couple. Another propped pregnancy will be adding another nail in the coffin.
Besides – I don’t think she is pregnant – If the writers have any clue- they will make her sickness part of Helena’s curse. Mom and dad are already affected. Jason and sam’s relationship are affected. She is in line next.
Just keep your hands off Danny. There has been enough babies/children hurt and killed on GH to last a life time.(Don’t care about that part of the curse). Jake has had more than his share of bad things happening to him, too. Lay off him.It’s time he has some joy in his life.

As for the serial killer– It’s neither Finn, Franco, Griff, Amy, Maddox or anybody we already know on the show- I see it as someone who hasn’t been on yet . Another new character – (if the writers are creative enough).

I like Laura and Kevin together. Just do it right and don’t mess it up.

By the way – When are we going to find out what happened to little Jake on the Island with Helena? Or have they just dropped that altogether?

Valentine is going to be Nathan’s father– finally they are getting around to that story…maybe.?

Writer’s are doing a fairly good job with the Elizabeth /Franco storyline so far. Just keep it up and don’t rush it or ruin it. Slow and steady and keep it light and fun. This is new ground for Franco- let Roger show his talent in this. 2 great actors like Roger and Becky can bring this story alive. Just give them something to work with.
Franco’s past has to do with a medical condition – a brain tumor. I see talk of him being a rapist- he didn’t do anything to sam and he said he had nothing to do with what happened to Michael. What did I miss?
If you can have a man supposedly fall in love with the woman who stood by and watched his child be kidnapped, refused to let the use her Tv station to ask for help, lie that she knew where the childwas all along, helped the woman who kidnapped the child, goes to the grieving mother’s house and talks to her like her son is already dead, hire gunmen to terrify the mother and babies, then sleeps with the legal father of the missing child..all out of jealousy and pure spite ( no medical reason for it) , have Jason tell her he would kill her if she ever hurt Liz or the kids again…..and after all that marry her..if we are to accept that- what the heck did Franco do? He was medically impaired–she wasn’t. She has no excuse and isn’t even sorry for what she did – he is.

The Claudette, Maxie, Nathan , Griff storyline is already old. Move it along or just get rid of it.

Can Jason start to act like Jason or even better – Jake Doe?
A man is shot and they ask a cop if he can remove a bullet. They make the man’s girlfriend do it–while the guy with the medical training is just holding him up? Jason studied to be a Dr. Don’t say he don’t remember- because he remembered how to fly a plane–a jet of all things–when Jason never flew a plane in his life. Really??? I don’t think being a part of a plane crash one time – qualifies you to “remember” how to fly a plane.
Again- Writers- learn GH history before you write something.

We know there is to be a new Jason- he is not going to be JQ or JM–but he was more JM while he was Jake Doe with no memory at all.
You have ruined yet another character on the show and it shows in the ratings. Jason (any of them, including JD) would not break promises to kids. None of them would of treated the mother of his child, Liz, the way he is doing. When Jake died- it nearly killed Jason too, yet now he can’t be bothered with him- after almost loosing him again? If anything – that should of brought back the memories of what happened the first time –yet nothing! Totally unbelievable. But you remember rain? Not your child dying- but rain?

The kidney story is boring. We know Jax had a hand in it- no surprise there. Him trying to manipulate things as usual.

Writers need to go watch the OLD shows – when rating were high and people couldn’t wait for it to come on.
Maybe if writers were in the fans groups – they would get ideas for stories- cause a lot of fans write better ideas of how things should go than what is on the screen. So sad.
We want our GH back- alive and well and booming like it use to be. We are loyal fans- hanging in there–but we want /need/deserve a reason to stay loyal.

Wow, great dissertation Angel!
Totes agree about the JaSam stuff. 1st thing Sam does is go to see her mom to t

But the first thing she asks about is what her mom remembers about Valentin and her time on the island….then she asks how she is and what happened.That really floored me. My first words would of been all about my mother…then when that is all done – then the rest of the stuff. Priorities , I guess.

the reason this show is going to be cancelled is bc they still have they are still writing for all of ron’s creations. there was a reason ron was fired. he was good for a time, but after a while he had too many characters no one cared about, and strange storylines. if these new writers came in, they should not have felt obligated to keep on the ron legacy (unless there were good parts). they should have immediately came in, and cut at least 5 people out. instead they tried to dress them all up and make them more interesting. did they feel bad for a few actors loosing there jobs? better a few new actors, than an entire studio. these writers seem afraid to put there own stamp on things. i heard at days they had these new writers come in and take out at least 5 actors and put in all new storylines. that’s why they hired different ones. what was the point of hiring these people if they continued ron’s legacy, and we have 10 extra actors on set we don’t need? i also want to add, i actually like the new hires, since they came on. there are only a few and they have a clear purpose and fit in well w the cast. as oppose to ron’s who you wondered why they were there and were isolated from the rest of the cast.

by new hires, i meant new actors.

I don’t think it’s Andre. He’s another one I like. You have the good/bad boy Curtis and I agree he’s really good looking…and then you have Andre who’s the good-looking, less street-wise type good guy. I still think he might wind up with Anna, at least for a bit. But since she’s going to be off the canvas for a while they may have changed course. Speaking of Anna, I originally hated Paul but I like him now. If Julian and Alexis are really over…much to the crowd’s dismay they might not be…but if Alexis is single again I could see Her with Paul.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.


Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

General Hospital


You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).


Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.


In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.


Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.
