GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

Courtesy/ABC

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

So, what do you think of the story turn thus far that has Franco now with Drew’s memories and with no trace of Franco? Share your thoughts on the twist via the comment section below!

When I saw Franco kissing Kim all I could think was “Billy Miller should be doing this!” GH is a mess right now. Sad.

As ridiculous as this mind mapping is, I’m fine with it if it creates a good story. It’s a shame that BM is leaving as it seems that Drew would need to be a major part of this story. It appears that this is what will keep Kim & Julian in town as I haven’t seen anything about the 2 actors leaving the show.

Billy is leaving because he has got shafted does anybody remember the big hoopla when he came??? Not one actor except for Kelly has supported him no let’s support the mindless robot SB who takes total advantage if his fans

I totally agree with you. Even when SB returned they could’ve created a great story but didn’t. Much of this occurred when I boycotted GH due to GF’s firing!

if you haven’t watch GH in weeks– how would you know if it’s ”?horrendous”
naww you aren’t going on other peoples opinions and not your own, are yah?

Do you know if Kim is actually leaving GH or is it just a dupe ?

Hi su000, I’d say just a dupe, wouldn’t you?

Very well could be the worst storyline in the program’s 56 year history. I sit in front of my 65″ TV, my face paralyzingly cringing. Astonishingly putrid.

I’d say Fluke, Denise Demuccio and Man Landers were worse – and that’s only recent examples. Oh, even worse, Anna potentially having a child with Faison.

First, lets face it, neither Stafford or Miller ever fit into GH. Point fingers which ever direction you choose. Secondly, Valenti loves Howarth, Easton and Ramsey Its his show and this is what we get. I will stay until the bitter end! At least we get to see Robert Scorpio from time to time.

I misread this headline as “and Believing He Is Drew Kisses Him.” Now THAT would have been interesting (and unexpected)!

(Hey wait a minute, it’s no more far fetched than what they’re actually trying to sell us!)

If the rumored resurrection of One Life to Live comes to pass, can we hope that Roger Howarth will go back to playing Todd (the only soap role I’ve really liked him in) and TPTB will finally admit that this whole Frodd thing doesn’t work? OK, OK, I know: that OLTL resurrection isn’t REALLY happening. (Next you’ll tell me mind-mapping isn’t real either.)

OLTL is not coming back. Ever. Nor AMC. Not trying to be negative. Just realistic.

Oh dear God. It’s not enough that Miller had to sit back and let Burton take over a role he worked hard on to make his own, now he has to sit back and watch Howarth take over his replacement role. What does Frank Valentine have against Billy? As Franco had memories wash over him and as he reached out and kissed Kim, there’s hapless Miller as Drew just standing there with his hands in his pockets with absolutely nothing to do. We waited for a long time for Drew to finally submerge his past with his present and they… Read more »

I am so disappointed FOR Billy Miller!!! I have been waiting patiently for him to get a story he deserves ever since Steve Burton came back! Why couldn’t we see Billy bring Drew’s history to fruition!?!? Bad move GH; BAD MOVE!!!!!

So crazy! If it weren’t for Genie Francis’ and Tristan Rogers’ presence on GH, I would say goodbye to the mess TPTB have made of GH. So hard to watch they cray cray!

Has anyone stopped to think of what could have happened, had they succeeded in transferring Drew’s memories to Cameron? He would have believed he was in love with Kim, yuk! Anything would have been disastrous.

I’m with you, Michael. Roger Howarth is the best actor on the show right now.

The twist of Drew 1.0 knowing he was a Quartermaine all along was a shocker, but made sense. We might get some interesting scenes now with Roger & Leslie.

With Billy leaving this week, I’m not sure how this story eventually wraps up without a recast or Burton taking a dual role.

Probably stretching out until November sweeps.

I am wondering if the moving plans will change now for Kim and Julian.As much as Kim will be drawn to Drew, she will not want to step on Liz’s toes, so to speak.Iam sure Liz’s plan will be for Drew to fall in love with her, as did Franco, but he is in love with Kim, so who knows what will happen.

I’m super excited to see how the Drew-Franco and Kim relationship develops. The chemistry between Roger Howarth and Tamara Braun was instantaneous and absolutely sizzling. I’ve been waiting for a coupling as electric as Tamara’s CarLo days and I think we are finally going to get one with Drew-Franco/Kim. Now, what to call this pairing? KimCo?

Violet Lemm

Agreed!

I must say that I am one of the few who had hopes for this SL, but I may have been wrong. I do not like Franco/Drew and Kim with their romantic remembrances igniting their new involvement. Kim being a doctor and Liz’s friend should have more sense. That being said, I really can’t imagine this turning out to everyone’s satisfaction.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.

Exec Prod Frank Valentini On GH’s Return with New Episodes: “There is a Bang and a Surprise and a Twist”

Monday, General Hospital will finally be airing a new episode – the first in months due to COVID-19 – which had previously shut down production of the show.  Now with safety protocols in place, GH will become the first ABC network show back on TV with original installments.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to ABC 7 Los Angeles’ entertainment guru George Pennacchio on the legacy soap opera’s return and picking up the story where things left off.

Valentini offered up for Monday’s episode: “The very first few seconds of the show, I think, will blow a lot of the audience’s mind because there’s a big surprise that we inserted in.”

Meanwhile, viewers know that their is a major custody case going on for Wiley/Jonah, and that Mike’s (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s could wrap in the coming months if the story continues as it had before the shut down.

However, Valentini shared that fans have some very exciting things to look forward to on GH: “There is a bang and a surprise and a twist and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

In addition, Pennacchio reports that the GH Nurses’ Ball will return sometime in August, which usually airs in May, but didn’t, because of COVID-19 this past spring.

As to how GH will handle the love scenes, the kisses, and the intimate moments between characters which are a staple of the genre during the health crisis, Frank expressed:”Physical intimacy is limited.  We’re going to leave a lot more to the imagination.”

So, what surprises do you think are in store as previewed by Valentini when GH returns with new episodes? Comment below.
