GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jax Returns To Comfort Carly As Morgan's Funeral Approaches!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

November Sweeps on General Hospital has been filled with emotional storylines and emotionally-charged performances.  That continued on Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in several instances.  First, fan favorite Ingo Rademacher returned as Jax.  This time Jax is back in Port Charles to be there for Carly (Laura Wright) as she prepares to say goodbye to Morgan at this upcoming funeral.

In tender scenes played to perfection by Ingo and Laura Wright, Jax and Carly talk about the times when Jax was Morgan’s “dad” and how much he loved him like his own, son.  Carly is still guilt-ridden over the choices in her life, chief among them allowing Sonny back into it, and whose life in the mob she believes ultimately killed Morgan.  Nelle (Chloe Lanier) walks in on a comforting hug between two exes and seems to misinterpret what she sees!  What will she do with what she thinks she “saw”?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) talks with Griffin (Matt Cohen) inside the church. It is apparent that something very heavy is happening inside the heart and mind of Sonny.   With tears in his eyes, he tells Griffin that Duke would have been proud of him and that after Morgan’s funeral to please look after his family.  What will happen to Sonny?  Maurice Benard once again showed us Sonny’s sadness and guilt without overplaying it.

Then there is the incomparable Genie Francis (Laura)!  In scenes between Laura and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), she learns that according to the second set of documents, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) is the oldest living heir and owner of Wyndemere.   A downtrodden Laura breaks down in front of Alexis.  She realizes Nikolas’ could have died in vain.   Inconsolable, she heads back to Wyndemere preparing to move out.   When she gets there, Hayden (Rebecca Budig) shows up after being contaminated with the same mysterious illness as Finn (Michael Easton) has.   Laura leaves Hayden alone, and then Hayden passes out on the floor.

And as expected, Alexis is questioning if she has a drinking problem, especially after passing out drunk and endangering the life of her grandson, and Valentin and Nina (Michelle Stafford) reconnect, especially when she learns he is the supposed baby-daddy to young Charlotte.   Is Charlotte the answer to Nina’s prayers to raise a child?

So, what was your favorite emotional moment on Wednesday’s episode of GH? Glad Jax came back to town to support Carly in her time of need? Comment below!

Not a Jax fan so no I’m not happy he’s back. Plus I’m in the camp that believes he knows more about Nelly than he’s letting on. I can’t wait for it to come out that Sonny’s innocent and that Julian did this to frame Sonny and get rid of him. Just hope it happens before Carly does something stupid and Sonny does as well. I hope I’m wrong but I think Sonny is planning to kill himself after Morgan’s funeral.

I think Sonny is going to enter the priesthood or become a monk. Wouldn’t that be a shocker?!?

I agree Julian set Sonny up I have said that from tha from the beginning …..Jax knows alot more about Nell get her away from Michael before it’s to damn late ….she’s up to no good….I”m hoping Morgan show’s up b4 Sonny does something stupid…..I think he will for some reason or maybe Nell will say something (not)

Oh how dare the show make Sonny look bad. I still don’t care about Sonny and Carly ‘s pain. Too bad Nikolas isn’t getting this much mourning from his family.

Jackass Julian sure didn’t like the questions he was getting from Curtiss today.. That showed guilt right there, if you ask me.

Do you think there could be a chance Julian has Morgan, Violet?

@ Melly…Even if Sonny was or is planning on killing himself…you know he’s not going to die…we already had him in a wheelchair so I doubt they’re going back there…no..Jason will scream out…”Sonny! you’re not responsible! It wasn’t your hit!” Then Sonny…instead of having learned anything about violence will go on a rampage of revenge…

And Michael has already completely forgotten about Sabrina, just like Nikolas was barely mourned. Morgan, on the other hand, because he is a Corinthos, will be mourned dramatically for months and eventually return.

Celia
Guest
Celia

So will Nikolas, come back. But, that’s a good point, John Paul.

Rebecca1
Guest

I thought about that as well John Paul. I understand Michael’s devastated…mourning..his brother. But I think having lost two people he loves back-to-back he’d be lamenting his own life…crying in despair for both. ” Sabrina…Morgan..I can’t believe I lost you both…” You’d think somewhere he’d crack and we’d see him she’ll-shocked from the cumulative effect. Instead everywhere he turns. Creeping/creepy Nell is standing in front of him with that “soft, soothing” voice that makes me want to SCREAM!

I’ve always thought… Ingo Rademacher has eyes like our nations state bird…
the bald eagle.

with that accent…. done in

Celia

Oh, Patrick, my friend!! Of all the beautiful wonders in the world in which to liken Ingo’s eyes; you choose the bald eagle? I am having a great belly laugh. How about the azure sea looking over Waikiki harbor? Or the blue iris?
I know you are being facetious and sarcastic. It worked. Love it!!
Unfortunately I did not fall under his spell. But, I am definitely under yours, Patrick.

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

Haha…it is a funny comparison CeeCee and I like your descriptive! But I think…may be wrong…but I think Patrick was serious. The bald eagle has eyes penetrating eyes…albeit yellow..but the stare, the intensity. Input they’re striking and perhaps simiilar in their gaze…

He certainly is a handsome man. I guess all the ladies love those eyes. They look like opals to me. It’s hard to tell what color they actually are. Love the actor, but just don’t trust Jax.

Rebecca1
Guest

Jax is good. No matter what he does…he’s a non-violent, always with good intentions, man. Still a shark when it comes to business…uses his connections when he has to, but he usually is the one combatting crime, even his brother’s. But I do think that he probably went thru some questionable measures to get Joss her kidney…and he’s wary…or suspicious, of Nell.

Violet Lemm

I do not think Duke would be proud of Sonny if he took the “cowards” way out. I think Sonny intends on turning himself in, possibly to Dante.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hmmmm. Good point, Violet. Does Sonny have the moxie to kill himself? Who cares about Duke? If Sonny does not go through with this show of bravado, it definitely would not be because he is ruminating what Duke thinks about it, right now. This entire staging is complete tomfoolery, as we know the point of gun-in-hand is moot. He is not even thinking straight. Is he a coward? Or is he just feeling nothing, but misery? Personally? I do not care. I think he should just go away. But, I doubt it. I did not feel ” the funeral atmosphere”.… Read more »

Sorry, a Carly fan I am not. She’s falling all over Jason and Jax, letting them console her, while Sonny mourns with his exxes who give him more love and consolation than his own wife. Carly knew what Sonny’s “occupation” was , and though she whined about it constantly, she chose to stay married to him. As long as life was running smoothly, it was OK. The minute something bad happens, she’s out the door, skirts flapping. I hope when the dust settles and they find out who the real bomber was and that pathetic Morgan returns, she will go… Read more »

@Violet.
Hi, Violet,
I am not a fan of Carly either. I agree with everything you said.
I was specifically pointing out what a wondrous and talented actress Laura Wright is!!!!! We must separate the two.
I do not think anyone can deny the fact that she can certainly emote the grieving mother. It is all relative, I suppose…..at least, for me.

Patrick

the emotional beats… as it were… were played out I will not turn a blind eye when it comes to the shows focus… Sonny and Carly I do not see them as the show. it just bugs me how can GH focus so much on this one family when they have nothing to bring as solid act I can pinpoint only 3 times.. when it seemed there was leverage and continuity to MB’ Sonny. 1. the brawl with Scotty 2. his talk with Alexis 3. his moment with Olivia Laura Wright is trotted out for “emotional beat” lol… ok.. this… Read more »

Rebecca1
Guest

I hope so too because as it stands now I detest the character. I don’t know if I’ve ever disliked a character so much. It’s not that she’s boring…I just resent her intrusion into Michael’s life…her faux concern. Although, sometimes I think she’s conflicted and feeling pangs of guilt for whatever she’s scheming…getting close to a family emotionally that she’s secretly working against. LOL..instead of being intrigued she makes me see red! It’s ridiculous that I feel that way but she just annoys me to no end.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Genie is always wonderful, given the right material. She is so beautiful, even when angry. I am not into Jax, so far. Can’t put my finger on it. Contrary to popular belief, I do not find him attractive……I know, I know, how dare I? However, looks are not what endears a character to me, I hope I am not that shallow. I just cannot take to him…..something about Jax….you know? Obviously, there is a method and purpose to this ‘hug’. The writers are cooking something up. What will Nelle do with what she saw? It depends what her role is.… Read more »

I don’t think the writers have a clear vision for Nelle. It seems that they are just throwing out loads of directions that character could possibly go. Why bring in someone new if you don’t know where she fits in? Just an opinion. Chloe is doing a good job of the in the aimless chemistry test tho

Celia
Guest
Celia

You’re right, of course, robbie. If the writers DO have a clear direction at the end of the tunnel, they are certainly taking their galling time. If the storyline showed any sign of drama, I would be captivated, as I am of Valentin’s and little Charlotte’s story.
Jax, Nelle, Carly, Joss hold no interest because this story is a bust. It is not an engaging story, regardless the mystery surrounding Nelle. I am not into her, albeit she is acting the part beautifully, as you say.

Timmm
Guest

I think Nelle runs to Sonny and tells him Jax is back and comforting Carly.

Celia
Guest

Probable, Timmmy. The question still remains: WHY? What’s it to her? Know what I mean.
Chloe is a really inspiring, young actress. Nonetheless, Nelle’s subterfuge is far from inspiring.

I would like to interject that Laura Wright is incredibly credible ( intentional oxymoron) LOL.
She is soooo good!! My gosh, she makes me cry my heart out.

Kudos, milady!! You are soap royalty.

Suooo, I agree. The Mourning Morgan show has dragged on way too long and I am tired of Sonny making everything about him and putting his needs first.
I think the head writing team are making the same mistakes they made on Y&R–they seem to be making everything up as the go along.

You are so right!! Everything is so gloom and doom..No comedic release..It is just serial killing, or car bomb killing, hiding a child from a crazy Psycho and just mourning and sadness all around!!

Just like DOOL, a show I stop watching like 2 years ago due to the same sad and lingering stories, I will have to say bye to GH.

I want to be entertain!! Infuse some light hearted fun in the stories and some great romance!!

it’s certainly a good answer to at last giving Nina ; something just to get her out of this obsession with wanting a child… which I totally understand… because I will not rest till NIna gets what she needs to move on I have never seen , so quickly… a new character just take over… he’s the man. Valentin OWNS this show… the energy vibe and take note of Valentin is full on HERE. at first I was like… how many times can a child here… from 3 different men, I’m your daddy. seeing the easy rapport and comfort level… Read more »

Hey Patrick, You know it, baby….Valentin came back with all the majesty due him, the second time around. He is sooooo transfixing….HOT. Old enough to be my father, lol, but who cares…..so intriguing, is he!! As I said, as soon as Claudette informed us that she had been involved with Valentin, and was on the run from him while hiding her child to boot; it was so easy for me to come to that conclusion. I never believed Charlotte was either Nathan’s or Griffin’s. However, that is not to say the writers won’t steer away from Valentin as the father.… Read more »

Jimh…Sorry to hear about your stress and high blood pressure, and what Su says in her comment if you scroll up doesn’t help. For a soap veteran like yourself you know to make them work and have loyal viewers for years, you don’t want continual misery like GH has had since Fluke. We need more love, happiness, adventure, stories with legacy characters and new one’s worked in in a meaningful “logical” way, and less over-the-top violent stories. Hope you feel better. 🙂

I didn’t notice Lucas, either, Jimmy. I have been sooo on the go this week, I have been watching peripherally; ‘in passing’, as it were. LOL.
I am still confused about what transpired between Brad and Finn…..didn’t even bother rewinding. So dumb….this strange disease afflicting Finn, and now Hayden? Strange. I am tired of the longevity of this story. FIND A CURE, ALREADY!!
It seems to me, someone on Sonny’s ‘team’ is a bomb-holding snitch.
And, Billy Miller, the tough guy, “ain’t” working for me.

Valentin is hitting fifty, GRANTLOVER. Old enough to be Natan’s father. Dr. O had made us think Victor was Nathan’s father. But, by her cryptic words Shay assumed it was Valentin…..and, I agreed. Katherine Gati is the same age as Nancy Grahn…… As is James Stuart aroundvthe same age as William deVry. Worked for them, LOL. But, you are right, he was never proven to be a Cassadine. It makes sense, though. I guess the proof remains to be seen; that is when Liesl and Valentin come face to face…..her reaction will tell all. Sonny may disappear for a bit,… Read more »

@GRANTLOVER and Celia….There has been the suggestion that Anna and Valentin are siblings, as well. Hmmmm….that could be VERY interesting! As for KG and NLG being the same age, CeeCee???? The difference is that one’s character acts like an adult, albeit an occasionally criminally-insane one, whilst the other still hasn’t a clue what being mature means! And I cannot picture Dr. O. rolling around the floor during unabandoned inflagrante delicto even with a younger man….or her beloved Caesar!!!!

Short videos of him and Brenda (Vanessa Marcil), Jax and Alexis…from back when they were in their faux marriage, Jax being a father to Morgsn to try to shield him from Sonny’s dangerous life, Jax yelling at his criminal brother Jerry for his criminal ways…Jax was the light to Sonny’s darkness.

Hi, Rebecca, Thank you for trying to ‘educate ‘ me on all things Jax. LOL…I do think we went through this before: could be deja-vu. But, I did look him up….a few episodes and all. I simply am not attracted to him…..nor do his looks appeal to me. I do not know why. One of my favorite words is antipathy, which I picked up years ago during one of my HUMANITIES classes……’antipatico” , opposite of “simpatico”……great Italian words which are sometimes difficult to translate.

I am hoping that this means Frank, Jean and Shelly might be able to lure Ingo back full-time to the soap, because Carly and Jax were the ultimate in relationship goals. Jax was easily Carly’s best husband, and the chemistry there is fantastic; it’s high-time Jax returns permanently to Port Charles. The story is there and I have a feeling that Ingo would be open to a more permanently place at General Hospital.

I’d love him back as well but he lives in Hawaii. And though I agree he and Carly are great together, she doesn’t deserve him. She had him, she cheated on him, she left him. Just like she did to Franco. Not to mention all the wrongs she did to AJ. Jax deserves someone good, who completely loves him…ONLY him.

My favorite moments on the episode were watching the scenes between Laura and Alexis. Those 2 ladies know how to rock when they are with anybody but put them together and it makes for an Emmy winning reel for both actresses whether it’s for lead or supporting actress. As a matter of fact, I do think this episode could be submitted as the reel for GH when they put themselves in for the “Best Daytime Drama” award.

@Shay. Hey, Shay, I intimated that Valentin and Anna had been lovers ( I know…tres impossible) , and Griffin is their child. Or, Valentin got cozy with one of Anna’s sisters, ergo, the reason he looks familiar to her. So much is put on our collective plates, Shay; we come up we so many possible scenarios. I suppose that’s a good thing. As far as Liesl doing the rough and tumble with Valentin? How else would she have begotten Nathan? You had said that if not Victor, then the worst of the Cassadines could only be Valentin. Even if he… Read more »

@Shay. Sorry, Shay, but: PS. If Valentin and Dr. O were involved, TPTB could ‘adjust’ the age-thing as they did with Alexis and Julian, where Alexis is younger than Julian. The thing is, Liesl and Valentin aren’t palatable as a couple, to me. But, if memory serves me right, you had suggested that he may have taken ‘advantage’ of her. The age thing kind of hurts when the girl is younger, as well. As you know, my husband is four years older, which is nothing now. But, when a girl is 14 and the boy she has a crush on… Read more »

Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! Yes, I still maintain that whatever “involvement” between Valentin and Dr. O. that transpired was not of the consensual variety, hence the “age” thing is hardly an issue under such circumstances. Of course, I could be totally wrong in that assumption…just have to “wait and see” on that one. As for the possible link shared by Valentin and Anna? He could have been involved with her twin sister Alex (from AMC) or an even more plausible explanation is that they have the same mother (once portrayed by Samantha Eggar) who just happened to be named….ta da…”Charlotte!” At… Read more »

What I thought was funny today when Alexis swore to Sam that she had not drank while she had Danny with her, then implied that Lauren drank the whole bottle of wine by herself. I read a few weeks ago that she runs down Hayden in a drunken fog. I wonder when that is supposed to happen, after Finn saves her life, and then she gets run down by Alexis? Sounds kind of crazy, to say the least.

Celia

I missed a lot of that episode, Violet; and, I still haven’t caught up. Are you saying Alexis lied to Sam about having drunk multiple wine bottles, baking and consequently waking up to smoke/fire with Danny in her care? Wow! Did Sam figure out what happened?

I love them, too. I am just getting antsy with the length and life of this story.
I suppose, Violet, the point will be that since Finn’s wife died of this disease and Finn was helpless to stop it; he will be successful in saving Hayden. I hope he does, but soon. I want Hayden to stay and I want them together.
So far, this is the most appealing couple to me…..until, of course, Valentin and Nina ‘get it together’.

While in a depressive stupor, I was just kind of half watching GH yesterday. While Carly was mourning Morgan, I was mourning the decline of civilization and the death of my perception of this great country of ours. And then Jax pops in jolting both Carly and me out of my forlorn mental state for a minute. He’s a sight for sore eyes indeed and while the Ferris Wheel is currently descending, it will ascend again affording us a view of all the possibilities I guess one might say Jax is the personification of positivity.

Oh, how I get you, Patrick.
Escape is temporary as the word itself. You should compile your cryptic verse and send it to a publisher.
The hidden meaning is so clear to me, Patrick. And, you do it with finesse; without being callous or offend anyone.
But, the reality is: it is what it is……with one stipulation……It will be better!!!! OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE….. something that has been lacrimoniously, acrimoniously, and regrettably buried at the bottom of the drawer for years, now.

@Rebecca. Hi, Rebecca, I will not start sparring with you. We have a new President. We should think about tamping down the fires, not stoking them. I am truly appalled at the incendiary and inflammatory extreme actions of the rioters. We should count our lucky stars we live here, instead in other arts of the world where babies are butchered on a daily basis. Enough is enough I say. This is not a tragedy. The people have spoken, obviously. To me, a tragedy is losing a child; watching those St. Jude’s ads with children and cancer. I have said this… Read more »

Exactly, CeeCee……”It is what it is.” Quite possibly, nobody was more devastated than I was after the 2012 election results….I truly believed with my whole heart and soul that Mitt Romney—a good man, but ultimately a highly ineffectual GOP standard bearer without the gumption and strength to fight and win for our side—was going to be my next president, yet alas, it simply was not the case. I was absolutely crushed and for about a week took to my bed in misery and despair, but certainly not the streets in protest and violence. Because that’s what mature adults do…they find… Read more »

@Shay. Hey, Shay, I am neither Republican nor Democratic. I am an Independent. I vote for whomever tops/ tips the scale for me. Hillary’s was just too heavy. I am sick of all these critics—-most do not even care to look into the facts—the bias is so transparent ……the media, Hollywood etc. I actually voted for Obama in 2012—-i felt for Romney as I do for Hillary. You, on the other hand, feel differently. I will not argue over it with you. It was your choice, as an American citizen. For the love of Jove; to cry over it is… Read more »

CeeCee…I want to say something to you and I hope you hear me. Not defensively, but with an open mind which I know you can do. I also know you enough to know you can be a bit too quick to think you’re being insulted…so I hope you take this as a means to understanding… Your response regarding people’s “mourning” the election results…feeling depressed, angry, etc…was to discount them with an assumption that they/myself included, don’t know what real, grief, loss, suffering is. And then you referred to your loss. that’s an assumptive statement, an insensitive statement, an arrogant statement.… Read more »

well… the 60 minutes @CBS- sunday show… president elect

i’m less occupied with thoughts all over the place. my life includes people of color, LGBT cause… so this is always at the forefront.

when Lelsi stahl asked him about gay marriage… he seemed to dismiss the issue.. stating that it’s done… answered by the highest court… the Supreme court voted.

it truly throws me… that racism “will” always be an issue. with homophobia. so onward and upward with fight left

For sure Jax is the one who paid or blackmailed Nelle parents to force them to give the organ to Joss. Now Nelle is looking for revenge! The other story behind this is if this was just luck that Nelle was a match or is she related somehow?

Rebecca…you’re comment to CeeCee expressed much of what I feel as well. You just stated it way better than I ever could. And I would hope CeeCee and I could remain cordial as well, because while we don’t always agree on characters sometimes, I know she us a way more caring heart than Trump and his coroners have ever shown.

Thanks Rose. A few of my replys to you didn’t make it. If there”s no understanding of what I explained or a recognition and disapproval of what’s going on…I’ll select my “friends” here accordingly. Too much of a morality gap…bad enough when it was about characters/actors. To turn a blind eye to the hate that was inspired with his campaign and still going on with his choice of cabinet…that’s beyond a different opinion.

Too bad both ladies are going through pretty heavy stuff right now and I just don’t want to see him pulled down with it. On the other hand if that keeps him in Port Charles… A few of my replies don’t make it back to you either. Let’s just say even though I’m trying for MF to hold out an olive branch, the… Read more »

Not sure if they do. I think Stavros was maimed when they left him for dead…new face. Charlotte is his daughter with Lulu. Claudia…maybe dated Stavros-Valentin…was implanted with the embryo…realized he was pyscho and somehow escaped with Charlotte. Maybe…Dr. O was raped by the same man that raoed Eluzabeth and Nathan is the product of that horrific event…

Rose

Oh Rebecca, since it’s a soap anything is possible, but not very cheerful. And I’m not into happyville Port Charles introducing a long lost rape character and scenario for Liz. It’s almost a reason for Franco’s black side to come out again in defending her…just what we need…rapist vs rapist. GH has so lost it’s way.

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

We have more important things to be concerned about in reality Rose…the electoral put a REALITY tv celeb in charge…and here I thought people were sick of reality shows! Stronger together…

But yep, I was surprised they reintroduced Liz’s attacker after all these years. Could be my theory…dunno. I’d like them to give Franco and Liz a real chance…But only if he shaves off that scraggly beard/stache. He’s so much better looking than portrayed.

Celia
Guest

Yes, could be, Rebecca. But, as Jimh pointed out, shouldn’t Charlotte be younger that Rocco?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, wow! That is so good, Rebecca. Perhaps this is the reason suddenly resurrecting Elizabeth’s rape. The guy is up for parole? What are the chances he will show up in PC. Is HE the real Valentin?
The fact that Charlotte should be younger than Rocco is neither here nor there, as far as TPTB are concerned.
As Rose says, anything is possible in soaps.

I just know… that Charlotte has melted my heart.

the easy rapport and connection Valentin and Charlotte have… ready made

this in no way negates how god awful this show is without, Nicholas

but if this cements a Casaadine Empire… w/ Valentin / Nina / Charlotte

this is reign supreme

let’s go

Oh, sweet, Patrick. I think everyone is walking on eggshells….and, so is Trump. He does not want to put his foot in it. Who knows? Racism, bigotry etc. will never go out of circulation. ‘Tis a sad thing, is it not? It is alive! We will not see a complete reversal in our lifetime. I think, at this point, all he can do is use diplomacy. We all have an innate prejudice inside of us. “Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone”. I took it completely different, Patrick. To me he sounded very acquiescent; in that he… Read more »

Ceecee…Americans are the furthest thing from united. And unless Trump gets his skinheads as well as his mouth under control it’s gong to sink the country further into chaos. He didn’t win the popular vote…and the ironic thing is he thought the electoral college should be abandoned a few elections ago when his candidate at the time didn’t get in. Surreal…only thing getting me thru this nightmare are all the intelkigent people who are similarly appalled by Ttump’ s hate campaign and what he’d unleashed… And late night comics.

Rebecca…The “new world order” is so unreal, irrational, scary, and destructive in so many ways. I feel like we are becoming strangers in a strange land, regressing instead of progressing. I was able to send a comment to Harry (or Addison?) to just say I hope he’s okay. Same applies to you.

Just look at his cabinet picks, other appointees, family and business conflict of interests, hypocrisy of “his” party, Putin connection, hacking, electoral vs popular…OMGoodness.

I’m sorely disappointed in what’s happened to General Hospital this past year…. I like Su000, have not smiled or laughed over anything that’s been written since Ron C was shown the door….ABC’s made a monumental error in judgment by not trying to pair Ron w/ an equally talented co-head writer that was well versed in character development…..that’s what they should have tried FIRST!!! before Saddling us with the “Snooze Queens” poor choice. The show is still choppy,chop,chop, characters and storylines R going nowhere (I would like to say FAST) but that’s a JOKE, these never ending useless tales R forgettable,… Read more »

Agreed, Fanny. I like that idea. I said this so many times before, Billy Miller is terrible as Jason. Not that I knew Steve as Jason, but he does have a following.
The Helena notion is so inspirational. Makes sense. What a brainstorm of an idea, Fanny!!!!! Just love it.

@Celia…dare I hope CeeCee????? If not, apologies… After watching Steve B. for 21 yrs as Jason it was hard to let go and say Adeiu… However when it was announced that Billy M. was taking over the role, I thought this could possibly work… It started out O.K…Unfortunately that was short lived, for me Billy M. has remained awkward, the fit never quite right… Yes, the long drawn out reveal was a factor, poor writing, disconnecting “Jason” from who he truly is… Down to his core, he no longer is who he once was. Not to mention how many characters… Read more »

Hi Fanny..yes, a few of us suggested that. Not sure if you were a OLTL fan…but along the line of the two Todds when Roger came back. Would be really interesting because Sam is now in love with THIS Jason and having his baby. I think it would be an amazing storyline..,though truth be told In the best possible scenario I’d rather have Sean Kanan back as AJ.

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

Hi Rebecca, I watched OLTL enough to really enjoy Roger’s portrayal
of Todd…Great character actor. Frank & Ron were wrong in using Roger
to resurrect Franco, they painted him into a corner and isolated him
from interesting & intelligent Storylines. Except for Dr. O’s friendship
but currently that’s limited to discussing Elizabeth….. Talk about
wasting superior talent. What were they thinking…Franco was always
meant to be a transient character.
If only Frank chose to rid the show of all the unnecessary driftwood….
He’d have enough in his budget to hire both Steve & Sean back.

Hi, Fanny,
Yes, dear friend, it is I, CeeCee. ……just a little snag with my ‘other’ email address.
Now, Billy Miller will always be one of my favorite actors; but, not as Jason. You describe the ‘fit’ perfectly. That is exactly how I feel.
What are the chances Steve will be back? TPTB should listen to you, as your idea tops any of theirs. LOL.
I am so glad to see your name again and ‘speaking’ with you.
Soon, my lady.

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

@Celia/CeeCee…I’m so very HAPPY it is you, I’ve missed
your resounding sweetness…..
TPTB should at least have a sit down w/ Steve and see if
it’s even feasible to get him back… He was only working
10/12 consecutive days a month on Y&R, which worked
out well for him so the rest of the time could be spent in
Tennessee w/ his family. Bottom line…Frank can make
this happened if he wants it bad enough‼️

@Fanny.
Hi, my lovely lady,
Thank you for your warmth. I appreciated more than you know.
Yes, I would definitely like to see Steve as Jason. I did not like him as Dylan very much until recently.
So, I have developed a degree of admiration for him. So, if TPTB can make it happen; I am all for it.
By the same token, I wish Miller would go back to Y&R as Billy A.
A bientot, ma chere.

The exits come as ABC and Hulu have consolidated original content under Craig Erwich, and 20th Television and Touchstone TV under Karey Burke.

The layoffs are believed to have effected 12 staff members mostly at the executive level.

Deadline broke the news and then updated their story later today.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
