GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

Courtesy/ABC

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?

Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!

Courtes/ABC

As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?

So, what did you think about Kim drugging Drew? Who pushed Liesl overboard? What trouble will Hayden cause?  Share your theories via the comment section below.

This episode set up a lot of possibilities. I hope the writers are on top of their game and follow through with great stories out of this.

This story was dead upon arrival.

AGREED. Boring summer in Port Charles.

I’ll go along for the ride with anything they want to do with the characters that were involved in this episode but the one thing I won’t take lightly is if Liesl drowns. No way in Hell do you let Kathleen Gati go. That woman is a goddess!!!

Totally agree with not letting Ms. Gati go. Glad she didn’t drown.

I love K.G as much as anyone, but it is so ironic that so many love this really bad, but enjoyable person, Dr.O, that has committed so many horrible crimes against the people of P.C, with nary a blink of an eye, is really never held accountable, for very long anyway, and continues to reep mischief and mayhem, to say the least This thing with Nelle, being Wylie’s mother, and Michael being kept from his child, is nothing but pure evilness, and what is Liesl getting out of it? Franco is hated by so many viewers, and is no way forgiven for his sins. He’s at least trying to be a good person. Go figure!

Well, Violet, we at MFTV have long debated this very topic before, and it always ends up in the same way. Those of us who adore Kathleen Gati’s very “dark lady,” Liesl, simply point out that for decades we have had Sonny and his criminal minions running about Port Charles pretty much unscathed, Nutty Nina pulling plenty of scary-crazy stunts and getting off scot-free from all of them by playing the “LooneyCard” and there’s also that evil vixen Ava perpetrating any and every misdeed imaginable and wriggling out of justice’s clutches time and time again, so why should Obrecht be the exception to this rule? At least she has personally suffered for her crimes…she’s been publicly humiliated by her unrequited passion for Faison, lost both her prestigious career and what bit of family she’s ever had, and essentially has no friends, save for the much-maligned Franco…In other words, Dr. O has been robbed of what made her life meaningful, as well as any longterm GH storyline which doesn’t include making her the town laughingstock. Other than her recent NB triumph, KG’s character never gets any love or respect….but we still champion her anyway!

Shay
Gotcha! I do love K.G, I would just love to see her in a good light, once in a while, as Liesel.

Me, too, Violet! We have already seen those rare glimpses into Liesl’s psyche where it is painfully obvious that this is a woman who loves deeply and passionately…be it for her once-beloved Faison or her kinder…she is simply one of those unfortunate people who have a really strange (albeit comical) way of showing it! I would be thrilled if GH were to explore Obrecht’s “softer side” whilst highlighting Kathleen Gati’s incredible voice and talent for performing In any and all venues. If she can’t have her own nightclub in which to do so, perhaps she could launch GH’s music therapy program. If Franco and his hippy-dippy artistry is accorded therapeutic value, then Dr. O’s phenomenal gift for song should be equally recognized and utilized!

Hello, Violet! Unless I’ve missed your postings on non-GH threads, I haven’t seen you around MFTV for awhile! It’s just not the same without your hilarious commentary…hope all is well!

I really messed up. Don’t know what I did but think my smart granddaughter found a work around! Thanks for missing me!

Just glad to know that both the “original” Violet and “Violet Lemm2” are doing well and have returned!!! You have such a huge presence here that your sudden and prolonged absence was impossible to miss! As for our pesky computers and all that can and does go wrong? Can’t live with ‘em, but boy, we also cannot live without them! Welcome back, Violet….looking forward to more of your canny and comical commentary! Later….

Shay
Thank you dear lady for the kind words. My granddaughter, busy as she is was able to solve my dilemma. She said, ” grandma, what did you do, offend someone, or say something WEIRD?” She knows me well.
As for this Franco thing, I know many do not like him, but guess I am one of the few that do. I have never been able to hold over the terrible feelings for him, when played by James Franco, although I have enjoyed that actor in other roles. To me Liz and Franco are like the Beauty and the Beast. He protects her and she takes care of him, which I see differently. I don’t know if they will ever get back to where they were, or if Franco will return as he told Cameron he would. Hope all is well with you Shay and thanks for welcoming me back. I missed you guys, even the ones that I have disagreements with from time to time.

Oh, I’m hanging in there, too, Violet! Thanks for asking! I’m looking to survive the last vestiges of summer and fast forward to fall here in the East!!! (August always drags on and and on for me…reaching September gives me a huge surge of energy…so much seasonal fun ahead!) By the way, your granddaughter sounds like a real gem….so glad she sorted you out!! (But, excuse me…YOU, say something WEIRD? Well, I never….Lol.) And speaking of weird, I’m one of those for whom James Franco’s freaky character became a total turn-off…after the so-called filmed “rape scene” with Sam, I just couldn’t handle anymore with him. Whilst Roger’s version is more palatable and clownish in nature, I simply cannot reconcile those two different actors as the same character, particularly where “his” romances are concerned. Carly, let alone Liz, would never have touched that guy with a ten-foot barge pole in the JF days, so I really cannot forget that fact, although many, including yourself, have apparently been able to make such a leap. However, your “Beauty and the Beast” is an apt comparison since Liz is ever so lovely! (Now Ava is another story…I can entirely buy into the notion that she was all for the kinky Franco 1.0!!! Hah!!!) Later, Violet! Take care….

Hi Shay
Thanks for your quick reply. I’ve really missed “talking” to you and others.
I must say, after growing up in Conn. I do miss the snow, especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas time. It took me a long time, after moving to Ca. to get used to 70 degree at the holidays.( can’t find the little degree mark on my keyboard.)
Am sorry to lose Billy Miller, and am wondering if there will be a replacement.

You’re most welcome, Violet, although I’m sorry to say that this response was not quite so rapid! As I’m still dealing with high heat and humidity here, the thought of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and yes, SNOW! is a tantalizing one! I can just imagine how strange it is to celebrate those holidays in non-stop sunshine and temperate conditions…In years when we even fail to have the frosty stuff, it’s so disappointing…and difficult to get into the proper atmospheric mood without a fresh snowfall and pronounced chill in the air. In terms of Billy Miller, I cannot fathom why a replacement would be necessary, since they failed to put his character to good use for over a year now…If flashbacks are warranted, I suppose Steve Burton will play Jason’s “twin!” However, were there to be an actual future storyline in the offing for “Drew,” I already suggested to CeeCee that perennial GH favorite Sean Kanan (aka, the late? AJ Quartermaine…) would make an excellent recast. Whilst she didn’t agree with that idea and stated that she found that particular actor too old for the role, I reminded her that it was really Billy who was too young for the part, since Jason and AJ were basically of the same age back when the characters were initially introduced. Beyond that casting notion, I have no desire to see anyone other than Miller as Drew!!! Later, Violet!

Liesl just cracks me the hell up. Damn, she’s funny.

Kathleen Gati is a natural comedienne who spins Liesl’s paltry storyline straw into golden hilarity. No matter how daft the situation, Dr. O. always delivers the laughs…she needs to be placed front and center to tie up so many of the loose ends that GH has left dangling over these past few years. Obrecht is definitely the lady with the answers to the questions we’ve been asking, as she obviously knows where all the skeletons of Port Charles’ past are buried! How delicious and malicious it would be if she were to open her personal “Pandora’s Box” to unleash untold tales of Jerry Jacks, Faison and the Cassadines???

This is twisted, dark and sick. Sexual assault is sexual assault no matter what the gender and no matter what the circumstance. I don’t find this to be remotely entertaining. Billy Miller and Tamra Braun deserve better and so do their characters.

Hi Harry
I for one am so sick of Kim. She’s getting on my last nerve, and I’m so glad she didn’t have her way with Drew, which could have been a treat if he’d been a willing participant. Oh sorry, but If she could put on some weight, she would be an asset to any football team, with those shoulders!

I don’t see this as “sexual assault”, Harry, not in the “usual” sense. Kim is not a sexual predator, a rapist nor was she even realizing in the moment that she was about to commit “sexual assault.” Rather it’s the story of a woman so drowning in her grief that she’s lost herself and her ability to use reason over her emotions. She did the same thing when she was willing to take Oscar against his will out of the country for treatment. She was desperate then to save him and she’s desperate now to hold on to him in any way she can.

I think it’s a great story of grief; despair. We’ve seen through different characters recently, Joss, Ava, Griffin, and now Kim… how “people” react to loss and the different ways grief manifests itself. As this is a soap it’s very “soapy” that Kim would want to recreate another Oscar or Oscarette. 😉 And she was so completely devastated/desperate that she was driven to an act she would never do in her right mind.

Rebecca, I respectfully disagree. You don’t need to explain to me about how Kim is in a state of abject grief and despair–that’s quite obvious. But she lured Drew to the breakers of the Haunted Star and stabbed him with a syringe full of tranquilizers. Then she drags his drugged induced slumbering body to a room in which she plans on having her way with him. Had Julian not interrupted, she would have succeeded in raping Drew. Imagine, just for one minute, if it were Drew doing this to Kim. Kim is in desperate need of inpatient care and I was not happy to hear that Julian manged to just get her to commit to one day a week with a psychiatrist. Kim is in serious shape. This is not fun, this is not entertainment, Moreover, since the show decided to pay fidelity to the realities of pediatric brain cancer, then they needed to follow through with a realistic portrayal of parental grief. What Kim did was not only not okay, it was NOT realistic and had she succeeded with her plan, that would have met the legal definition of rape. We must not employ a double standard when it comes to sexual assault/rape when the genders are reversed.

Harry; I didn’t say it wasn’t sexual assault and leave it at that, but rather, I clarified it with sexual assault “not in the usual sense.” And by that I mean, this was not an intent to sexually assault him for sexual/pleasurable reasons and this was not an act of violence as rape is. And, though you do say you know she’s in grief, which I think is a given to anyone watching, you tend to overlook the human, emotional side of things and just go to the “crime.”

Drew and Kim shared a child together. They lost that child. Kim is wallowing in despair and her only thought to alleviate that pain/despair is to create another life with the same man…deceiving herself into thinking that this new child will be so reminiscent of Oscar that he/she will fill that space…which is why she didn’t want a child with Julian or with Shiloh (before she knew he was evil). She’s psychologically, emotionally troubled. So her “sexual assault” as you call it, was rather an act of desperation with no thought of sex on her part, but rather a means to an end…another Drew/Kim child.

So, technically, you are correct by definition. However, for the same reason Drew didn’t press charges is the same reason I, as a viewer, feel only empathy for a woman lost, floundering, trying to swim above the tide of her tears. Kim is not a rapist; she was not acting in a violent, malicious way with intent to harm. She was acting through a mentally, emotionally charged mind in an act of desperation. Though that doesn’t excuse it, it explains how lost and troubled she’s become; and that is the takeaway from what she did. This wasn’t a story about sexual assault.

GH doesn’t let sexual predators, rapists, etc get away with it. Harvey, Franco’s abuser was killed, Liz’s abuser was jailed and finally killed, Kiki’s “Dr. Superior” was jailed and lost his rights to the hospital. In this case, though it was tough to watch Kim do that and I felt Drew’s vulnerability (and it made me uncomfortable), it was an attempted physical act committed by a woman who has lost all sense of self and reason.

I also disagree about this not being realistic. Not being realistic would be for Kim to get over Oscar’s death quickly. Does she have to react like every other character? Joss held a seance, Ava is talking to a medium and Kim is trying to recreate another Oscar. These character are dealing with their grief in different ways; and since it IS a soap, Kim’s over-the-top reaction is not far-fetched. This in no way diminishes the reality of grief; rather it shows to what extent it might drive someone.

Drew realizing the mother of his child was not in her right mind was the proper, decent, compassionate reaction. Her cry for help couldn’t be louder.

Amen, Harry! You are exactly right…as is your apt description of “twisted, dark and sick!” You especially nailed it when you noted “sexual assault is sexual assault no what the gender and no matter what the circumstance!” Me thinks that if the roles were reversed and we had a male perpetrating the same stunt as Kim, we would be treated to a much different tune than one of praise for this deplorable storyline…in fact, there would be the typical femme response raising Cain over it!

Thank you, Shay. That’s it exactly.

Seems like some who think Kim’s act of grief, desperation in a time of complete loss of self was “sexual assault”, yet in reality voted for a man who admitted to sexual assault “because he can” and they “let him do whatever he wants”…Go figure….

You’re welcome, Harry! Even though I adore “dark comedy,” I find nothing amusing or entertaining about drugging an unsuspecting person in order to have one’s way with them….not only is that completely immoral, but it’s also totally illegal. And being overcome with grief is hardly an acceptable defense for such egregious behavior. Many people suffer unimaginable losses each and every day in this world, but I dare say, most don’t resort to rape as a means to alleviate their pain!!!

Hahaha…I love how the voter/fan of the sexual molester in the White House is still trying to proclaim her “distaste”… how utterly her delicate sensibilities were offended… by the depiction of a fictional mother, who, while in the throes of grieving her child, is driven to an act of desperation….which was not meant as “dark comedy” nor was she trying to “alleviate her pain with rape”… but rather serious drama about a broken woman and the lengths she would go to to attempt to recreate a piece of the child she lost. THAT is offensive to this poster…but grabbing a woman by the pu–y was not. Twisted, hypocritical thinking…Just shows a lack of understanding of fiction AND real life. A president and a judge get the benefit of the doubt…heck, no, the first is given a pass even when heard on tape, and accused by others..but a fictional mother who lost her child committed “egregious behavior?” As the saying goes…can’t make this stuff up. Well, the fictional mother is…made up…but I digress.

Free us of Kim “Zero!” I’ve never been a Rebecca Budig fan. I find Hayden annoying. I love “Dr. O!”

Yes, Yes, and YES, DMRR! I cannot stand either “Dr. Zero” or Hayden…Both are surplus to requirement on GH and I would have been perfectly content if the latter never returned to Port Charles! However, Dr. O’s another matter entirely! This character deserves a major storyline and the sooner, the better! Liesl ties in with so many of the legacy characters we have known and loved through the years, so she’s a total natural to be featured in a much larger capacity than she has been since her family was torn asunder. Bring back Britt, recognize Sasha as either another Obrecht spawn or granddaughter and allow many of this shady lady’s old associates like the Cassadines, Faison and Jerry Jacks to resurface on GH. Then the real mirth and merriment will truly begin!

AGREED! I’m hoping that Dante shot Peter! Haha! #wish

He did. Unfortunately his aim was off and Whiny Heiny survived.

On the bright side, at least that keeps him out of Hell for a while.

Either figure out something to do with Britt, or write her off. She’s dead weight right now. Figure out a plot twist for her ASAP.

@Nancy…I agree that Britt—and Dr. O—-should have a substantial storyline…especially one which highlights both their quirky personas and immense talents for offbeat and outre’ situations. To have two such gifted actresses as Kelly Thiebauld and Kathleen Gati given GH backbencher status is a true travesty. Obviously, were there the will, then there would be a way, since we never seem to face a shortage of far-fetched machinations to shoehorn Ava and Nina into every and any story that really has nothing to do with them….the Kevin/Ryan highjinks being the latest example.

I don’t know who looked more suspicious, Valentin or Brad, and they both went missing for a while, before Liesel went O.B. I loved her natural curly hair, after getting dunked.
I thought Billy Miller was great. I never saw anyone look so surprised , with the what the f***? look, when he woke up in that bed.
I was surprised at Heyden’s greeting for Jax, as was everyone else.
I don’t think anyone was more surprised than Terry, catching the bouquet.
All in all, made for a good wedding reception, and surprise, no one was murdered!

Did Bobbie disappear around the time Liesl was thrown overboard? I haven’t been watching much. Does Bobbie know about Liesl’s involvement in the baby drama?

If Dr. Ooblech had actually drowned, then the question of who threw her overboard might have been interesting. Since she survived…. well, who cares, really??

As far as Kim’s rapey ambitions go…… well, I’m a Devil, not a doctor, but I would guess that a heavy dose of depressant drugs, like whatever she shot up Drew with, would significantly slow down the circulatory system, which would NOT be a beneficial thing for (ahem) certain parts of the male anatomy.

Julian broke into the room before she could actually attempt intercourse, so technically we will never know, but it really seems silly that a doctor wouldn’t consider the drug interactions here.

Satin
I agree to what you’re saying, and she was so overwhelmed with her grief, she didn’t realize her mistake, or thought she was Wonder Woman, thinking she could get results, with a little coaxing.

Poor Billy Miller he thought going to GH would solve his problems I can’t understand why he has not walked ever since Burton came back he took over the stupid black shirt no expression role so sad and KM is asleep she is so bored .

Billy always wanted to do prime time so I say just go for it the ratings on all four soaps are at a all time low GH is really not offering him anything I know he is a better actor then he has shown lately.

@Kay…Billy was fabulous as the villainous Charlie/aka, John DeLario, in the little-watched 2011 Sarah Michelle Gellar CW tv series “Ringer!” Back then, I didn’t recognize him from the soapworld, having not seen either AMC/Y&R in years, but he totally impressed me with his dark and devious characterization, which was worlds away from his positive, sunny “Cousin Billy” image for which he became renowned. In fact, when Miller arrived on the GH scene, it took me awhile to realize that he was the same guy who had superbly played such a nasty scoundrel! Why Billy has not made a gigantic leap from daytime to primetime stardom is a real mystery to me.,,,he’s hugely talented! (Not to mention very easy on the eyes!)

Just fed up nobody gives 200 percent like Becky yet the but jobs attack her she is raising three kids etc but let’s kerp piling it on

Shay he needs to move on

This is true, Kay! And if Billy chooses to do so, I wish him the best of luck! He’s too good for GH…as is Becky Herbst! The ridiculous storylines she’s been handed over these past few years have been utterly preposterous! Whilst I did think Miller’s “Jake/Jason” had wonderful chemistry with “Liz” and that their romance should have been played out more extensively, but good God, putting her with Franco just makes me want to hurl…I’ll never be able to unsee all the freaky-deaky evil his character perpetrated throughout the years, and now we’re supposed to “ooh” and “ahh” over his “sweet?” coupling with one of Port Charles’ loveliest of ladies??? Me thinks NOT!

Billy Miller needs to get on a prime time show. Good actor who’s completely wasted on GH.

Kay, I agree with you yet again. It’s a wonder Drew still likes women. Let’s see, since he’s arrived in Port Charles he has had: 1. Hayden pretend that she was his wife. 2. Lizzy, pretend that she doesn’t know that he’s really Jason. 3. Sam pretend that she doesn’t really know that he’s not Jason and then dumps him when the truth becomes glaringly self-evident. 4. Margaux pretend to like him only to use him as ammunition and then hides his memory flash drive from him in order to black mail him and finally, 5. Kim drugs him and attempts to rape him so they can produce an Oscar clone. Can Drew just have a decent girl friend? Can Drew just have a little fun in life? This is getting ridiculous. I bet if he went trick or treating in Port Charles all he would get was a bag of rocks.

Harry…If Liz can finally land “the love of her life” with Franco after all of her dalliances, there is hope for Drew. But right now it’s slim pickings for him in Port Charles from what I can see. Especially Kim.

Ok I have had enough Liz did not know for how long before he was Jason she fell in love with Jake ! Please give that actress a break she gets the bullshit always comes her way just like case on y&r their are a few of us who are fed up! Becky carry’s everybody just like case anytime you want to throw shit their way call them up while every actor cry’s and carry’s on oh poor me there take your crap and still carry on ! Nobody in daytime has chemistry like Becky and Sharon they turn crap into gold and yet everybody craps on them

Goodness FV writing team you want to bring your ratings up let’s feature the Scorpio’s !! Watching today with Tristan Rogers what is the matter with you people! Case closed

This man is in his 60 and their is not one actor in the canvas who has his appeal not one

Amen, Kay! The ever-dashing Robert Scorpio and his sparkling baby blues can set hearts aflutter in a way that no so-called current GH beefcake can do! #SilverFoxScorpio

the Kim drugging drew thing had me worried they were going to make Kim a crazy character/rapist, thank goodness that was quickly defuse, and yes Kim is having a break down and you can feel her pain, hopefully she’s now back on track and will get help. loved Haydens return, the best part was her kissing Jax, I didn’t see that one coming at all, it was a great surprise. wow she has chemistry w/ everyone. I loved the whole episode. the webber boys were awesome, liz looked beautiful.

Ok, this is very important. Please will someone tell me what the hell is in that big dish on the Corinthos kitchen counter? To me it looks like big hairy avocados or big mounds of turf grass. Nevertheless, it’s driving me nuts! Thanks

John J. York Returns as General Hospital’s Mac Scorpio and Shares, “Expect The You-Know-What to Hit the Fan”

General Hospital fans were overjoyed when John J. York (Mac Scorpio) revealed he was back on set and taping all-new episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

The beloved GH star was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders, back in 2022.  Later, he underwent treatment for the cancer in September of 2023, which took him off the show while he went through a blood stem cell transplant and the recovery.

Now, those who have waited for Mac to finally get to the truth – that Cody Bell (Josh Kelly) is his biological son – may finally get their wish!  Speaking with TV Insider on his imminent return (he is back on-screen this coming Wednesday, June 19th), York shared on what’s about to go down, “Expect the you-know-what to hit the fan and let the dust come down and settle where it will, so get ready.”

Photo: ABC

York also prepped viewers that he will look a little different when he first seen back in Port Charles, due to his cancer treatments, “My hair grew back nice. I was not sure how my hair would look because I was bald. Now it’s short, like a military cut.”

Photo: JYorkIG

Speaking on his own health and life, John shared, “With the MDS, if everything goes well with the bone marrow transplant, that should be handled. With the multiple smoldering myeloma, smoldering being the key word, it just kind of stays there in my system. There is a small chance that it could turn into full-blown leukemia at some point, but the goal is for me to die of old age before I die of any kind of blood cancer. I feel fantastic and all the blood tests that I take once a month have all pointed in the direction that things are all going in the right direction, which is really good.”

Are you looking forward to the moment that Mac realizes Cody is his son? What do you think his reaction will be as he has been duped all this time? Happy, as we are, that John is back on-screen on GH? Comment below.

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Photo: ABC

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.
