GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Walks In On Shiloh and Dr. Cabot’s Plans for Cameron

Courtesy/ABC

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Shiloh(Coby Ryan McLaughlin) is ramping up his now very twisted plot; after kidnapping, Cameron (William Lipton) who was out doing his community service, the young teen is tied to a chair in a seedy warehouse.  As Cameron tries to break free and kicks Shiloh, it further infuriates the former, disgraced cult leader, who has one mission on his mind –  to retrieve some vital information on Drew’s (Billy Miller) memory flash-drive.

After waiting for Cabo (Time Winters) t to turn up at the warehouse, when he does, the doctor is not to happy to find out that Jason (Steve Burton) is not there, but instead has been somehow replaced by Cameron Webber! Cabot emphatically tells Shiloh that this mind-mapping experiment was only meant for twins!  Shiloh is not backing down and tells Cabot to improvise.  Then, he blackmails Cabot by telling them they are now co-conspirators … and if they are caught by the authorities they will go down together.  Shiloh also intimates that the information he needs on that flash-drive could set them up for life.

Dr. Cabot informs Shiloh that he is very worried that transferring the memories into someone so young could have dire consequences, as they have never experimented with that before.

At General Hospital, Sam (Kelly Monaco) wakes up to a nightmare from her time in the freezer; thanks to Shiloh.  She is still reeling from what she experienced.  Jason tells Sam that she was just the bait, because what Shiloh truly wanted was Jason, so he could implant Drew’s memories into him.

Elsewhere, Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) where to meet Cameron following his community service duty, but he does not show up.  This alarms the couple, but Liz is more annoyed, because she also has to get to work.  When Liz gives Franco the keys to the car. he refuses to drive Cameron home when he shows up, and says the two of them will walk home, because of the musings of Chelsea (Jen Ray), the psychic, who told him to ‘not take that drive’.

Later, Chelsea shows up where Franco is waiting for Cam. She now has updated visions for him to now, “Take that drive.”  She also says: “It will be an easy decision, but be the hardest thing he’s ever done.”  Franco is now more  worried and confused.

Back at GH, Liz and Finn (Michael Easton) check in on Sam.  It is there that Finn makes a key point, when Jason reveals Dr. Cabot is back in town trying to implant Drew’s memories on him.   Everyone in the room believes Cabot needs twins to make the mind-mapping work.  Finn reveals that is not so;  meaning that someone’s memories could indeed be transferred into someone else’s brain, even if the subject is not part of a set of twins!

In the final moments of the episode; Franco’s dad, Scott (Kin Shriner) phones him to tell him a meter maid friend of his located Cameron’a car and it was parked illegally, and he has the address where to go get the car, etc.   When Franco comes to the address, he goes through the first door, only to hear rumblings and shouting through a gated-second door.  When he walks in, he finds his stepson tied up and knocked out, and Shiloh and Cameron about to proceed with their potentially life-altering or deadly experiment.  Will Franco save the day?  We fade to black.

So, what do you think about Cameron being kidnapped to be used as the vehicle to retrieve Drew’s memories? What do you think Franco will do next?  Will Shiloh ever get his comeuppance, or Dr. Cabot for that matter? Comment below.

Coming soon: “Drodd: The Redemption of Frodd – Part 666”

Surely we will all love Frodd when he becomes Drodd, who now believes he’s a Navy SEAL and has no connection with his actual psycho serial killer past.

Does anyone else remember summer romances, heat in the summer, cliff-hangers? No more! We have the teen scene, boyfriends hired, boring baby storylines, & a boring immigration story. Oh, and a stupid cult storyline that will not end.

Well, Shiloh is history. Kidnapping a kid, there is no redemption for that character. Good riddance!

Hi Timmm ..
I will miss Shiloh !
He is the only character that keeps me awake through all the boring junk..
Hate or love Shiloh he is good character actor has given us great performances.

Shiloh is in the middle of villains, there have been much better but Shiloh is all we got as a Villian in one of the most ridiculous stories/cult junk..
I will miss him..
Who will the next bad guy be?
0ooh there are none they are all monks now..
I wish Franco would get his tumor back!!
I need suspense, intrigue, on the edge story a real thrill and chills !!

su0000, Shiloh’s twin could be lurking!

This was an unexpected twist. GH is usually so predictible.

Great work today from Roger Howarth and William Lipton

Both earned Emmy nominations on Thursdays episode

Ok..this is the final straw..GH needs some serious writing regime changes from the top to bottom..I have great respect for EP Frank Valentini for all his work in daytime TV but we need a new person in charge if this show is going to be around for more years and entertaining!! ABC, this show this to be overhaul BIGGG time! You are losing long time fans and even younger ones!!

Franco is not a twin but thought he was. Will save Cameron by taking the mind map thing himself.

Didn’t someone (Franco?) also take an LSD trip at one point to save someone too? (oh gosh, I’m not a twin and maybe someone has mind mapped me!) 🙂

When Franco and Nina were in love he took LSD to save her..
that was back when Franco was a great character before Liz killed off Franco’s greatness and turned him into a dull boy..

I can’t wait for Shiloh to get what he deserves! I hate him even more so now than I ever did! Most selfish jerk in the world.

Cameron (William Lipton) that kid has great acting talent.
He will, eventually, leave GH and up his career he will do well. A good future ahead for him once he moves out of GH..

Ahhh Franc0, I miss the real Franco and hope he will get a great story, once again.
I’m gonna love seeing Franco out of Liz’s space and have himself a darker encounter along with his humor, miss his humor and his exciting self.
— I want Franco back–
(this Liz’s Franco is so phony)

This is pure trash. Cameron is a minor. This looked like torture and abuse of a minor. I know Franco will take his place but someone needs to end this and kill Shilow once and for all

Jim
its only make-believe..
Authors and producers do not single teenagers out..
Stephen King uses teens too, yeah know..
It’s fantasy, not real..

Cameron (William Lipton) is a strong actor and he was strutting his acting skills in his scenes, good for him..

Ready for Shiloh to die

I’m one that usually looks for the positive when it comes to GH, and I’m usually willing to give them the benefit of the doubt to let stories play out before I judge them. But I’m beyond over the Shiloh stuff, I really am. And I was never on board with the whole “person’s memories on a flash drive” nonsense. It’s gotten so convoluted and illogical at this point. I think the show is doing a number of good stories right now, but this one has been by far my least favorite.

Coby Ryan McLaughlin has done a great job portraying Shiloh as the smarmy sleazebag that you can’t wait to see get his, I’ll give credit where it’s due. But I really hope they’re moving towards wrapping up this storyline and giving it a satisfactory conclusion, which will hopefully be Shiloh taking the big dirt nap when all is said and done. Which will then likely result in a lengthy murder mystery, where about 75% of the people in Port Charles will be suspects, lol.

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 Heavy.com 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? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

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.
