GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Finds Out Jason Is Dead Courtesy Of Faison!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

In another heart-stopping Friday cliffhanger episode of General Hospital, two major stories had some dynamic moments and they intensified.

First, alone with Faison (Anders Hove), Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is lamenting that her dear friend Jason (formerly Steve Burton) will come save her once he realizes she is alive and at Wyndemere!  Since Anna (Finola Hughes) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) are captive in the lab at Cassadine Island, Jason will eventually come and kill Faison and bring her back to Port Charles!

Only Faison hurts Robin in the worst possible way, revealing he shot Jason in the back and pushed into the pier and he is dead! Not believing him, Robin looks it up online that verifies that Jason is presumed dead.  Heartbroken and devastated over the loss of Jason, who willed her to live and move on with her life and towards the arms of Patrick (Jason Thompson), Faison and Robin have an emotional showdown.   Later, Robin is hit with another low blow when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) return from a visit for Ben to General Hospital and Britt reveals that Patrick is engaged to be married to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo)! Big kudos to the performance of Kimberly McCullough for making us recall the deep relationship Robin shared with Jason.  Now we ask, how much can Robin take before she will just break?  It’s bad news after bad news for the young heroine!

Elsewhere, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds out with conclusive evidence that Derek Wells (William deVry) is indeed Julian Jerome! And we also learn in a conversation between a locked-up Anna and Robert, that Robert knew and had a hand in Julian Jerome cutting a deal with the WSB to save his life.  Julian AKA Derek plans on killing Morgan (Bryan Craig) since he knows who he really is, but after Morgan gets riled up after seeing Sonny and Michael (Chad Duell) together as father and son, he tells Julian that he wants to bring down his father and he wants “in” on the destruction of Sonny!

So, what did you think of Robin learning the news of Jason’s death?  Did you expect that the powers-that-be would address it as this point in the storyline?  And, what of Sonny learning the identify of Derek Wells?  What will happen next?  Comment below?

I recognize Robin, I recognize Faison, I recognize Anna but sorry I still don’t recognize Robert. I don’t think anyone has been able to write for this great character since the late Gloria Monty may she rest in peace.

Hi, I’m curious what aspects of Robert you’re citing from the past. I agree that he was written as a buffoon when he and Luke went on those adventures to the Markham Islands with the monkey. But I recognize this Robert, especially Friday when he was calling Duke “Lavery” like he always did and not believing that he had gone straight, and lamenting how a guy with the name “Jerry Jacks” got the best of them.
If you were going to mention that he’s not romancing Anna like he used to (personally I liked his romance of Katherine Delafield more, but I digress), well wait until they’re short on food and water and think they’re going to die soon….

Well I recognize Robert and happy he is back and out of his coma. Anna & Robert aren’t going to die soon at anytime. They will get out of the lab soon.

How much am i loving GH right now?? … VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brit and Robin as friends? Oh yeah !!!! Take that Sabwwwina 🙂 Love love love all of GH right now .. Robin, Ava, Morgan,Julian, Lucy, Anna, Luke and Tracy, all of it ! well except Sabrina.. she can go click boom

Shay

Right on, GhLover…..I also believe that Britt and Robin could become fast friends, as they share the same derision for Obrecht and Faison, not to mention what is obviously going to be the mutual goal for Patrick to reunite with his true love…..me thinks that this would be an especially beneficial way to rehabilitate and redeem Britt in the eyes of the viewers, not to mention the proper Prince Nicky!!! And it would be ever so delicious if the divine Dr. Westbourne were the one to put the tko on the GBWB’s barmy bethrothal!!! Poetic…..even Dear Mutta would be proud of her daughter for that fine feat! Go Britta!!!!!

Oh you incorrigible guys with your “click BOOM!” And here I am the one who catches all the grief for my anti-“Sappy” screeds!!!! LOL….Seriously though, I think the only one who would have actually had the guts to barbecue the “Senorita Cinderella” would have been that glorious Gati creation otherwise known as “Dr. O.!” She is one ruthless mutter!!!!

The writing has been seamless and the acting flawless. Kudos to all involved for dignifying the soap opera genre so superlatively! I have believed and maintain my belief that Robin’s efforts to reunite with Patrick may circuitously ebb and flow until the actual nuptials between Patrick and Sabrina. Given the underlying tenacity of Corinthos allegiance to family, I believe Morgan will travel a deadly course with Julian/Derek yet ultimately defer to blood allegiances and try and deter Sonny’s destruction.

You knew from the time Morgan hooked up with Ava and his insecurities toward Sonny that he would team up with the Jeromes

I thought the writing for all the characters has been good not great but close enough to how I think of them … I’m very fond of Anna / Robert they feel real .you know I was probably supposed to be sad for Robin learning about Jason but I found it rather compelling and exciting …Robin could have acted more convincing ly…….. By the way please keep Tony Geary in your arsenal of actors …..

I (and millions more!) was rather excited when Jason died, too.

Another great week of GH!! I usually get caught up on an entire week’s worth of shows on the weekend, and usually I watch one or two episodes, then go do something else, and come back and finish later. Today, I started with Monday and I was glued to the TV, and before I knew it, I was finished with the entire week in one sitting, lol.

Excellent storytelling, I love when they bring a lot of characters together under one big umbrella storyline. And needless to say, brilliant acting from Kimberly McCullough, Anders Hove, Sebastian Roche, Finola Hughes, Tristan Rodgers, Kathleen Gati, Tyler Christopher, and Kelly Thiebaud, among others.

Between that storyline and everything with the Jerome’s and Sonny finding out that Derek Wells is really Julian Jerome, and the drama with Morgan and him offering to turn on his father to work with the enemy, everything on the show is coming together at the same time perfectly.

Loved Friday’s episode!!! Faison and Dr. O were fabulous as cranky… almost child like… relatives! Loved Faison with Robin… sorry to have her hear about Jason that way! Then about Patrick’s engagement… she is just not getting any good news! She’s so close to home and yet so far away! Can’t wait to get Anna and Robert out of the lab and back in PC. Looking forward to seeing Sonny and Julian’s showdown. GH is doing great!!!

Aren’t “Faibrecht” just the most delightfully dysfunctional duo of doom ever??? As the pompous Pied Piper of Perfidy to the Machiavellian Mutta, Cesar is one twisted and temperamental mister…what unmitigated gall he demonstrated by demanding his spurned suitor and co-conspirator “cook” him one of his favorite German delicacies….apparently he liked Liesl’s recipes in the kitchen, if not the insane inamorata’s “maskless” affections in the boudoir!!! And giving as good as she got, the steely superwoman responded with a requisitely ruthless retort! Oh well, you know how it is ladies….can’t live with them, can’t live without them!!!

Well I did like the scene between Faison and Robin. The minute I heard Faison say Robin reminds him of her mother I got a chill up my spine, just thinking this guy might transfer his obsession for Anna to Robin. As for Morgan, one has to wonder if the gun in his back was the reason for asking Julian if he could join them. My guess, Morgan is only pretending to join them to save his neck and to find a way to save his father Sonny– but even I am wrong and he is really joining forces it should make for an interesting story, one I am willing to invest my time into watching.

Let me preface this by saying I LOVE GH and I hope it continues for many years to come. And I find EACH storyline compelling….I do like the Jeromes a lot…and I’m looking forward to how they work Morgan into the plot; I love Lucy 😉 and Scot…ISam/Derek/Alexis…Nicolas/Britt…Anna, Robert, Duke.etc, etc…BUT!

I miss AJ…I don’t like how they built up his story and then dropped it/him out of existence…I don’t like how they’ve underused Duke, Mac, Felicia., Lucy…all four get just a few lines every few weeks…it’s insulting to them and disappointing to those of us who looked forward to their return.

I don’t like how they underplay the romance between Duke and Anna…if they’re truly back together let’s see it. Give them passion…adventure…something! Nor do I like how Robert lay in a coma for a year and was never mentioned.

As for Robin…I tend to think that she underacts. She just learned that her first love and one of her best friends is gone…I didn’t “feel” the devastation…especially after all she’s been through.

I think that the characters need to be interwoven more…I’d like to see more people running into each other at the old diner…Kelly’s which is now run by Sean…more Quartermaine gatherings…which is why I thought the latest escapade that had Nicolas, Brit, Faison, Anna, Robert, Robin, Dr. O…worked so well!! It was great seeing an ensemble together!

As for Sonny, he’s going to be walking a fine line between the Jerome’s and Morgan…and as for Ava…I always suspected she had affection for Morgan. Not necessarily in a romantic sense…but I was glad to see her protective side come out.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

A.J. is supposed to be back for Nov. sweeps…i too would like to see them interwoven more, especially Luke who should be showing Lulu some support during the baby custody storyline…Duke and Anna should be more romantic…currently they just seem like friends…Robert, Duke, Anna triangle would be nice…id like to see Duke and Alexis as a couple!!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Reallly? I was hoping for Alexis and Julian…though she did dump Sean because of his mob involvement…but if I remember correctly was dumped by Sonny or she would have stayed with him. As for Duke…I’d like to see them give him much more story…and to amp up the Anna/Duke love affair…

Shay
Shay

It would seem in terms of “maturity” that Duke and Alexis would make an appropriate couple…he just isn’t quite matched in the “youth genes” department for the “Divine Devane” at this point! Anna and a revitalized Robert (aka, “The Silver Fox!”) have such cool chemistry this time around, so a rekindled romance should not be out of the question for them, particularly if they are trapped in “captivity” for very long!!! On the other hand, locating the right man for Ms. Davis is quite honestly an almost impossible task….NLG has never found another one like Lane Davies as Mason Capwell when they were paired to perfection on Santa Barbara….I think now she needs an older, well-established multi-millionaire gentleman to sweep her off her feet…you know, one of those old-fashioned, conservative business types, like a Donald Trump….definitely a “Republican!!!!” That would provide a real acting challenge for the uber-lib, Grahn….I think her head would actually explode with a storyline like THAT! LOL…..

Patrick

great write up of the lovelorn within reach but too laden with tantalizations she’d quip and whip in to a frenzy

I see good chemistry between Duke and Alexis…it seems there might be a Carly, Franco and Julian triangle…maybe? Alexis could still be paired with Duke but have feelings for Julian who she’ll probably end up with eventually!!!

Unless Julian “falls”…he’s only using Carly to get to Sonny.

By the way, Julian Jerome is actually only eight years older than his “daughter” Sam. (in real life.) Gotta love soaps…

I absolutely love the character of Robin, having watched her grow up from a smart, strong-willed, resilient little girl to a smart, strong-willed, resilient woman. Kimberly does a superb job! Her acting on this episode was especially great. The death of Jason was one blow and then she was hit with Patrick’s engagement. Bam! I can’t wait to see how she reacts next week.

Love that Britt is supporting Robin. Most unlikly friends but it makes sense cause she hates Sabrina. I like that Brit may help bring robin back to Patrick. Crazy twist!

Kimberly McCullough is a fantastic actress: very real and very natural. She killed those scenes — and even made me remember that time (a year ago?) when Jason was “killed”.

As for Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini, or “Cartini”, I have mixed feelings about them. Surely, they’re a vast improvement on the last regime. They’ve brought more balance to storylines and arranged for the return of some beloved vets. However, they are ignoring couples with real chemistry like Franco & Ava, Nikolas & Elizabeth and Sonny & Brenda. (Brenda’s not on canvas, of course, but when she was it was a complete waste of Vanessa Marcil’s considerable talent and chemistry with Maurice Benard.) Also, I’m not sure Cartini corrected fully the deeply misogynist streak of the last regime. Why can’t Ava have equal footing in the Jerome crime family? Why is so many female characters still focused on getting men, rather than having individual story lines? Finally, Ron Carlivati demands so much suspension of belief in his writing that it’s distracting me from really getting into the story lines, e.g. time jumps, smart characters spilling their secrets without caution etc etc.

Yay to Robin’s return; it’s truly the most exciting story of the last couple of years. But I do wish Cartini would ramp up their game!

Beth

Wow………………….As a 50+ yr vet, I can honestly say the team of Carlivati and Valentini is the BEST thing to happen to GH since the irreplaceable Gloria Monty. What they have done in a year, is leaps and bounds over what JFP did in a decade. The way they have brought back characters from years past, is sheer genius, and the future looks nothing but promising. I have not enjoyed this GH for years. And for those trained actors pointing out the negative aspects of Kimberley McCullough’s Robin, obviously have not watched “Robin” grow up. The character has never been a highly emotional character. Robin has always had a serious side to her, and KM has always told the story through her face, and that being said, she has not missed a beat with the story of Robin, as KM is the only person to have told the story. Thank you RC and FV for bringing back the General Hospital that I have been obsessed with for fifty years.

Amen. Gh is the best its been since GLoria Monty! Its a magical time 🙂 New and old characters being developped in such a rich way, like Britta being Faison’s daugther! Congratulations Ron and Frank, i simply cant say it enough. Thank you for Robin’s return, the casting of the divine Maura West and Britta of course!! Loving Gh its no longer a guilty pleasure, its a must watch pleasure 😉

DAYS had a fantastic week with Nicole/Eric, Kristen/Brady and Theresa/Jennifer/JJ. How come they don’t get a page dedicated to that great work? Why must GH get one after nearly every episode? I’m starting to watch GH again, and yes, the direction is good (obvious, frustrating, but good) but it feels like there is favouritism. Not a mention for some outstanding work by DAYS? How could that possibly be?

And frankly, I was hoping Robin was talking about Duke. When I started to realize she was glorifying Jason I did what I always did when she sang the praises of Jaseface during the Guza years, I rolled my eyes and let my mind wander.

Hey Shay! My brother’s name is Jason, and he once had a girl come over. Being the absolute twit that she was, she called him “Jaseface”. To this day, many years later, I still tease him with the name and will use it against him when I want to torture him even more. Works everytime :).

I know, right ?!?!

I liken it to…. the little engine that could. Leave well enuf alone… NBC/Sony/DAYS

it’s fine where it’s at…. I guess, cause, if it’s not lauded…. near enuf… I’ll take over the soap box

1. I’m dreading the eventual exit: The much deserved, lauded Eileen Davidson
2. where is Blake Berris… need ME so much Nick.

soap box chatter

sometimes, I wish evil deeds, bad behaviours ‘should’ WIN

you can see the writing on the wall… as it were… and yet… I continue to root for Kristen, Theresa, the DiMera’s… LOVE Nick. hell… bring back Vargas

I was nonplussed… Livid… blindly flailing about… when Jenn light in to Theresa.. and vented her holistic rant at Theresa… telling her to stay away from her son. dang! I so wish Abbi had in fact just moved out of Jenn’s house as well… Abbi telling her mom as did JJ they would never speak to her again…. Oh Jenn was Haggie Maggied out… forlorn and askance… clearly unable to deal with… let alone ACT her way out of ALL her broods hormonal rages

oh… it’s draining to go there…. don’t get me started … it’s daniel

saint… the pillar of the earth… supercharged with goodness… the superhero who will right the wrongs of “his” friends… ALL his friends…. Daniel cares about everyone… all the women are at his feet and all the men are appreciative of his godlike …. OH…. forget it

course the writers can’t seem to

daniel has the: kristens “infamous BLUE flash drive” drool – it’s Father Eric… and Kristen/Nicole…

I just didn’t appreciate that it seems like Theresa is taking all the “blame” for daniel and Jenn’s mt. Sinai, bible thumping, virtuous, sainthood… yawn

the writers’ need to clip their wings… banish them

I don’t know… what do you think?

currently… on DAYS…. it’s high stakes drama unfolding…. and one can’t help but know the outcome… yet reel your gut for fun… otherworldly shenanigans forthright to camp it up… and see the righteous flail about

and toast the artists’ who we revel in… that drive how good DAYS continues to be

Jules
Jules

It’s my little soap too. I know many consider GH to be because it’s been on the brink of cancellation and “needs the love”, but DAYS is in just as much peril! It’s now being renewed year to year, and those years go by fast.

I hope after ED exits they can keep the momentum going. The writers seem to be doing a good job with almost every story on canvas- making them interesting, connecting many characters, giving great hooks and allowing them to organically spawn other stories. So I have hope it will continue. But if it doesn’t, then it stinks even more if DAYS isn’t receiving the love it so richly deserves when they ARE doing amazing work. I mean the stuff this past week with Ari and Greg were as perfect as it comes.

I hope they give Blake Berris more to do. He’s more than proven what an asset he is. And he can do so much.

Thanks for your thoughts Patrick.

DAYS deservedly so… near the TOP.

you can’t go their…. cbs’ shows are sunk

Patrick

at the “bare’ minimum…. (wink, wink, hint, hint) Scandalous behaviors surmount … reach climatic levels….

Father Eric… you are in judgment of yourself…. time to rip the cloth and cloak and dagger your white collar imprisonment

Nicole is wanton baren and has needs

after Kristen is exiled, JJ see’s the light, and Theresa is familial bonded… IE: Shane and Kimberly…

we need to turn the page… for MORE

Patrick

Justin Kiriakis’ uber talent Wally Kurth

could this be THE ‘time’ to trot out the turbulence that Justin could reel… and bring to the forefront intelligence, hard knocks delivery we know he’s capable.

it was intriguing to see Justin and EJ side by side and once at odds… to revel in… the Kiriakis and DiMera Empires going at it….

the eventual exits of Kristen and Chandler Massey hasten their heed (days production) to further along… how much the cast currently has….

I hope the story with Kate, Jordan, and Rafe… (yes, Rafe is TOTAL EYE candy.. but worthwhile) i still hope… but… I like what someone else who posted… Jordan could be the offspring of John Black and possibly Kristen…. hopefully this avenue will lead… as jordan can… and keep Kate and Rafe on their ‘big’ toes

better late than never… it totally nonplussed me… why did they so diss Jack… ie: with the 18-20 years ago… jack sexually assaulted Kayla… which pissed me off that once again.. Daniel was in the mix… god… doesn’t he lack the vitality to contribute… anyway… it seemed unnecessary to bring up past fault/hurt to give JJ his comeuppance and make it seem like this will boost overkill Daniel image.

Great story behind the “Jaceface,” Jules! (Guess your mom liked names that started with a “J” then?) I simply surmised that you came up with it to dead-right describe the single stony expression that SB wore throughout his stint as Mr. Morgan….little did I know! Thanks for sharing…. ; )

I hope that bringing back the dynamic of Duke & Anna with Robert via the Derek Wells reveal is used as major story. There is nothing that would make me happy to tune in more. So much history there and Friday’s ep was all the more captivating due to that thread tying the ep together.

Robin could not send an e-mail with Faison watching.. He was watching her, ya know..
and it would take Robin a bit of time to create an e-mail account or accesses one and Faison would not allow that to happen, we all know that.

I love the days on GH when I do NOT have to see Sonny or Carly or Franco on my screen. The Dimpled Don and Company make it a chore to stay tuned in. In terms of the Jeromes, I’d rather see the Alexis and Sam side of the potential story than anything to do with Sonny, Morgan, Michael and Kiki. I just don’t care enough about them to follow what they know or do.

Let’s get back to the Robin story and all it entails, even if it means Sabrina and Felix on my screen.

General Hospital

GH’s Eden McCoy Chats on Tackling the Role of Young Carly, Josslyn’s love life, and Her Co-Stars

The rivalry between Carly (Laura Wright) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) has deep-rooted history in the past, not just the present, as viewers learn today on a special episode of General Hospital.  In it, we go back to the 90s, before Carly stepped foot in Port Charles.  This gave Eden McCoy, who usually plays Carly’s on-screen daughter, Josslyn Jacks, the chance to play a young Carly as fans of the ABC daytime drama series also see that the episode sheds come clues to a story that will play out in the present in the weeks and months to come.

McCoy got the opportunity to work with a different set of players than her normal scene partners in Port Charles in the episode – Cynthia Watros (Nina), James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) and young Willa Rose (young Nelle), who comprise the Benson ‘family’ in the flashbacks.

However, while Eden got the chance to travel back to the 90s, Josslyn is also in the dark in the present to that kiss shared by her best friends, Trina (Sydney Mikala) and Cameron (William Lipton).   If that lip-lock came to light to Joss, will that finally get her to admit she may feel more than friendship with Cam?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Eden to discuss: the opportunity to play young Carly, having Laura Wright as her on-screen mom, and going to battle on-screen with her good friend, Chloe Lanier, plus if she would like to share more screen-time with Josslyn’s dad, Ingo Rademacher (Jax), and of course, the burning question, who has Josslyn’s heart? Is it Cameron? Find out when you read on as to what Eden shared below.

On today’s April 8th episode of GH, we see you portraying a young Carly.  Tell me when and how you found out that you were going to play Carly, and what the experience was like for you taping those scenes?

EDEN:  It was really one of my favorite experiences at GH, hands down.  I think if I had to choose favorite episodes, this would be this one for sure. My other favorites prior to this have been: the fight scene with Nelle, the dance scenes I did, and the fake drunk scenes with William.  Those were all so great.  I found out that I was going to do this episode and play a young Carly from Laura Wright.  I ran into her on set for blocking.  We weren’t even working together that day, and she’s like, “Oh, I’ve been told that you’re going to play a young me in an episode,” and then she literally walked away – because she had to work.  So, I was like, “What?”  It was kind of this thing hanging in the air, and I rushed to tell my mom, because I was so excited.  I didn’t get the script until maybe a month after Laura told me.  I didn’t want to ask more about it before then, because I kind of wanted to be surprised, too. Then, when I got the script and read it, I was completely blown away.  Then, when I got the news that Cynthia Watros was going to play Carly’s mom and that James Patrick Stuart was going to play Carly’s dad, I mean, I just about had a heart attack! Those are two actors that I’ve watched and admired so much and haven’t worked with a lot.  So, it was this perfectly gift-wrapped opportunity to get to know my fellow castmates and dive into a whole other character.  Everyone was so involved in that episode.  Look at the set design, for one thing.  You can totally tell that it transported us into the 90s.  Everyone did an amazing job with that style of architecture ….everybody had been researching it …everybody pretty much except for me as I lived through the 90s!  The wardrobe was one of my favorite things ever, because the 90s, for me, is my favorite era of fashion.  I feel like my own wardrobe is heavily inspired by the 90s.  I have vintage pieces; my favorite jeans are 90s Levis. I watched Friends and obviously was obsessed with it.  The wardrobe team did an amazing job focusing on all of the 90s trends with the cardigans and the clogs and the jelly shoes and all of that.  I have three outfits in the episode, and we literally named them “Monica”, “Rachel”, and “Phoebe” after the women on Friends.  It was so much fun.

Photo: JPI

What’s your take on what happened in the episode; as we learn about Carly’s troubled-past with her adoptive parents, and her past with Nelle?

EDEN:  It starts as a look into a young Carly’s everyday life.  She gets home from a job interview.  She is looking for work, and she gets the job, and Virginia and Carly are talking.  However, the conversation turns into how Carly wants to leave home, and have a very different life than Virginia, but she needs money to do it.  So, she leaves her mom, Virginia, to go find Frank, her dad, who, by the way, is a complete turnoff of a dad.  She thought he was going to have some money, and she could be rich, and get it from him, and move to New York, and see the world because that’s her overall goal.  Carly is a very passionate, goal-driven person as we know, so she goes to see Frank.  It will be a heart-wrenching moment for Carly as a character; and you will see how Nelle factors into this.   All of this in the past shows the internal conflict that Carly has towards Nelle as a person and as a character.  It’s not just that Nelle came into her life and hurt her kids and hurt her family, but it’s because it’s that desperate need for validation that Carly had growing up.  I think, she has had this resentment towards Nelle, because of it.

All Soaps Now On Production Breaks Due To Coronavirus

How old were you supposed to be in the flashbacks as young Carly?

EDEN:  I was playing like 18-19 years old, and Nelle was around 6.  Willa Rose was such an adorable little actress.  She and James were so cute together, and James was phenomenal.  He just went 110% on this, and it was so, so fun to work against that.  Every take was different.  James was walking at this pace, or he was eating in this scene, and he totally took it to the place that I knew that he would take it.  Same with Cynthia!  Cynthia was amazing.   I’ve watched them together since Cynthia first came on the show as Nina, and I’ve watched James forever, so I totally scored.

Has Laura Wright seen your portrayal of Carly yet?

EDEN:  I’m super excited to see what she has to say about it.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I were discussing it day-of taping. We were kind of dissecting Laura’s mannerisms so that I could kind of plug them in to my performance. We used when Laura as Carly tucks her hair behind her ear, and Frank was like, “Oh, yeah!  Do that!”  I’ve grown up with Laura, and watching her, and acting against her, and people clearly compare us all the time and are like, “That’s insane.  Do you try to do that on purpose?” It’s like, “No, I’ve just been with her since I was 12, almost every day.”

You realize when working and talking with Laura that she truly gets and understands her art and acting in this genre.  She’s really one of the best there’s ever been in soaps.  She can dissect a scene and understand it from different points of view, etc.

EDEN:  Oh my God, I know.  She’s phenomenal to watch, and I am not immune to that whatsoever.  It hits me every time I see her act.   She’s just been the best teacher.  The comments I get the most are: how much I resemble her looks wise for one, but also acting wise.  So, I’m so excited to see what people have to say following the airing of this episode.

What do you think about Josslyn’s combative relationship with Nelle?  I loved on today’s episode that we got to see the scenes where Josslyn clocked Nelle again!

EDEN:  I would love to slap Nelle again!  Chloe is one of my closest friends on that set.  Even though we haven’t worked together as much as we used to, we are still very close, and I learned a lot from her.  Scenes with her are always so juicy.

Where do you think Josslyn is at this point in her love life?  Is she still really into Dev (Ashton Arbab)? Does she truly loves Cameron, but can’t admit it to herself? 

EDEN:  I think that’s it. With Dev, he was an intriguing character with a very different background than Josslyn.  They say opposites attract, and I think that goes along with this story a little bit.  He’s just something that’s new, and someone who she is intrigued by, and I think that’s realistic.  I know that’s happened to me in my love life before.  I’m not sure where it’s really going to go between Dev and Josslyn.  Then for Cam, I think she doesn’t want to admit the feelings that she has for him to herself because that’s a whole big can of worms. I think she feels that once she admits that it might – not necessarily ruin their friendship – but taint it.  Cam is such a safe place and such a home for Josslyn.  I feel like if she were to admit that to herself, she’d be like, “Oh, no.  I’m going to make this uncomfortable and weird, and I can’t lose Cam as a friend.”  That’s always kind of been where her head is at, but I think as she spends more time with him, her feelings become more and more clear.  You never really know what’s going to happen, and I don’t think she’s set on anything.  Teenagers are just all over the place with feelings, and one day they feel this and one day they don’t.  So, it’s always such fun to play because I know some fans are dying to see Cameron and Josslyn get together that and some people don’t want to see that.  It’s fun to hear everybody out and to hear everyone’s opinions on it.  For me, I just hope it can be something fun to watch.  That’s always the goal.

So now Trina has shared a kissed Cam, and Josslyn doesn’t know that yet.  What do you think her reaction is going to be when she finds out?

EDEN:  It will be interesting to see how the writers do that when she does find out, because Trina has been a great friend to Josslyn, and Josslyn wants to be a great friend back, and of course, Joss is a great friend to Cam.  These are her two best friends.  She doesn’t really want to be anything but supportive.  I feel there is going to be a lot of internal struggle with that because I think that action is probably going to make her realize, and come to terms with some feelings that she has probably been avoiding, for sure.

Do you think that Josslyn has truly moved on with her life following her last boyfriend, Oscar’s heartbreaking death, so that she can welcome and accept new love into her life?

EDEN:  I think she’s moved on, at least I hope so!  That’s a pain that she’ll take with her for the rest of her life, and an experience that she’ll always have in her back pocket. That’s great as an actor … to have had a deep, influential experience because you can bring that into certain scenes and make them stronger.  Right now, I think she’s just trying to be normal and feel normal things, and that’s where I hope that her story will continue to go.  Life goes on, and we have awesome teenage characters that I’m happy to be a part of and working with.

Whenever the fans have seen William Lipton and you together, they have noticed that you get along so well. What can you say about William?

EDEN:   We do get along so well.  William is the best.  He’s really like a sibling.

Would you like to see more scenes between Jax and Josslyn? Don’t you think he should be more involved with his biological daughter’s life?

EDEN:  Yes!  From day one of meeting Ingo five years ago, he just made it so comfortable for me.  We have had a complete connection.  We share so many similar traits.  For instance, we both love the beach and we have a similar drive.  I will say that our relationship outside of the scenes is what makes those scenes what they are and what makes them fun to watch, and why when you’re watching, you feel like, “How is this not real?”  So, that’s why he is one of my all-time favorite scene partners.

Your mom was, and is, a big GH fan, right?

EDEN:  Yes, she grew up watching GH in her sorority house, and her two crushes were Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher), and I’m their kid on the show!  I remember when I auditioned for Josslyn.  I was given a fake script with a fake character name on it, so, we didn’t really know what my family tree looked like, or anything.  When my mom saw Maurice and Ingo in person for the first time, and I remember her freaking out.  I can’t even imagine what it was like for her.  My mom was just as excited as me to have this opportunity.

Are you at home quarantining, and taking care of yourself during this COVID-19 pandemic that we all find ourselves facing together? How’s that been going for you?

EDEN:  It’s going good.  I’m not complaining about staying in bed. (Laughs)  No, it’s been fun just trying new things and spending time with the family. You know, I’m usually so busy that it’s nice to have a little down time for a minute, but I naturally like to stay present and connect with people on social media, et

What are the fans saying to you most on social media that they want for Joss? 

EDEN:  I am hearing a lot about Cam.  It’s a big, “Is that going to happen?  Is that not going to happen?  Team Cam/Team Not Cam.”  That’s always fun because I love to have rivalries.  That means that people are invested in the story.  I get a lot of Jax things, like, “Where’s Jax?  We need more Jax and Josslyn,” and I completely agree.  However my dream, (and I think what a lot of people want to see) is Josslyn’s rebellion and gearing away from the goody-two-shoes person she is for a minute.

That would be in-line and typical for the daughter of Carly, right?

EDEN:  Yeah, that’s what I’m saying.  When I hear about what Carly had done at my age and in the past, I’m like, “I have that DNA.”   Carly had a very painful upbringing with not a lot of parental supervision and support.  She had no father figure growing up, and Josslyn has had two. That really shapes a person and makes them who they are, but I do feel like with all of the pain the Josslyn has gone through; some kind of off-the-rails moment would be fun to play and will be hopefully in her future.

So, what did you think of Eden’s performance of young Carly on today’s episode of GH? Do you want Josslyn to end up romantically with Cameron or someone else? Do you think Josslyn should display a more rebellious side given that she is Carly’s daughter? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
