GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sam Shoots Shiloh, Carly In Labor, Nina & Valentin’s Wedding Approaches

Courtesy/ABC

Last week on General Hospital there were some major developments for the characters of Port Charles.  First and foremost, it looks like Shiloh’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) reign of terror has come to an end, thanks to Sam (Kelly Monaco), the person he came after from the very beginning when he arrived on the scene in Port Charles.

After a major confrontation where Shiloh admits to Sam that he killed his father, and then comes after her where it looks like he might rape her. Jason (Steve Burton) saves the day and shoots Shiloh, but guess what? Shiloh was wearing a bullet-proof vest and he is not done … by a long shot.  Later, Shiloh attacks Jason with a bat on the deck of the ‘Haunted Star’, and after a struggle … where Shiloh sneers he has been waiting to kill Jason for a long time, Sam shoots Shiloh in the back with a flare gun.  Next, Shiloh screams and goes overboard, but did he, like many others, survive the steely waters of Port Charles?

Turns out looks like Shiloh is soap opera dead, ‘dead’, as a gurney is wheeled into General Hospital with a body bag on it.  Chase (Josh Swickard) is along with the body and says he cannot confirm it’s Shiloh until a proper ID is made.  Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) is there at the hospital and say she will do it.  And, she tells all that this is the body of “David Henry Archer… Shiloh”.

However, a nurse who looks a little suspicious was tending to Sam’s wound at the hospital, and the next thing you know she gets in touch with Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry)at the PCPD.  Earlier, said nurse, had a flashback to Jason and Sam talking about how Shiloh was killed.  Is this nurse part of a contingency plan Shiloh left behind to stick it to Jason and Sam if he should get killed? Could be! But, Sam is then called by Jordan to come down to the PCPD to answer some more questions.  Will Sam go to jail for shooting Shiloh?

While all of this is going down, Carly (Laura Wright) goes into premature labor, which is not good.  Now she is faced with having a c-section two weeks earlier than planned and is very scared.  Jason is there at the hospital with her, until Sonny (Maurice Benard) arrives.  Now that Carly and Sonny are together; will their baby survive?

Elsewhere, Liz (Rebecca Herbst) continues to fight for Franco (Roger Howarth), but feels she has to have him locked up in a psychiatric facility in order to protect him.  He is very enraged because he believes he is truly Drew Cain.  Will Liz’s plan to get the man back she loves work, or backfire, and send him into the waiting arms of Kim (Tamara Braun)?

And finally, the wedding day of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) is fast approaching, talks of Bachelor and Bachelorette parties is happening and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is ready to unburden her secret – that she is not the bio-daughter of Nina!  Will the secret come out before the nuptials? At the nuptials? Will Valentin and Nina tie-th- knot? And Valentin has more trouble ahead as the codicil to Mikkos Cassadine could play a big part in bringing him down.  If Laura (Genie Francis), Hayden (Rebecca Budig) or Curtis (Donnell Turner) can find it, it could mean Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel) is the rightful heir to the Cassadine fortune and all that comes with it.

So, what did you think about the shooting of Shiloh? Glad he is gone for good?  Will Sam be sent to prison?  Do you think Carly’s baby will be OK? Will Liz get Franco back anytime soon? And do you think Sasha will come clean with Nina? Share your thoughts via the comment section below as we head into a new week on GH.

A bullet proof vest. GOTCHA! A flare gun. Who got who huh? A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Especially when it’s shared by three people. LOL. A fake daughter and a fake Last Will and Testament. I’m sorry but…ZZZZZZZ!

Well I think Carly’s doctor is going to be the one hot tab Martin! He will bring some well needed levity to the show. Every one loves Michael Knight. I think Carly‘s baby with the spina bifida will be a intriguing story line and a learning lesson for all of us about this disease. General Hospital always has lessons to learn for us. I do agree that Jason and Sam need a story and Sam needs to smile. She is not Jason. I love the babies switch story and I assume it will be heating up for the November sweeps.… Read more »

Helena2 I don’t understand what you meant by Carly’s Dr.??I like Michael Knight too, but he seems awful creepy in this part. I don’t know about a tornado, but a hurricane would be more likely in N.Y. I like Spinelli too but a little bit of him goes a long way. He can be exhausting. I hope it all goes well with the new baby, but that’s not likely. And do we really want to lose Kim? Those shoulders could easily hold 4-5 hangers on each one. Yea I know, Iam so bad. Oh and I don’t see Nina and… Read more »

Hi, Miss Violet—–I am worse….please do not let my tongue loose—-I try my best to hold back. LOL We shall see on which side of the wall Michael ends up—-West? East? Good? Bad? I want Kim gone—-cannot stomach her–didn’t like her on Days, either. There’s something about her that turns me right off—I love Roger and I did enjoy Feanco for a while—especially when paired with Stafford’s Nina—-but, the last year or so? He’s hitting my ‘unsympathetic’ nerve—now, he and Kim together are making me foam at the mouth with “yuckkiness”. At this point, I care not what happens with… Read more »

Shiloh death was a big BLAAH! It was minor league stuff.. Sam killing him, ehh nothing there either. It was an empty death scene/ending. Carly in labor- I could care less. that story (with or without the baby’s death) has been a total sleeper. Nina and Valentin will not got married, it’s a given. No excitement there. What in hades has happened to GH, it has sipped into a void of nothingness. What a shame for a great soap to fall so low. and- why on earth has the writers and producer been allowed to let the falling happen, that’s… Read more »

Here’s a thought. If you’re going to extend a soaps contract do one thing right for a change. Not a contest but a blog or post where viewers can suggest honestly how to fix things. Let viewers post storylines they want to see and how they’d work. Then have a team of people plus the EP and head writers take a serious look and draw from what’s posted. Viewers aren’t thick headed, and are extremely passionate about their daytime dramas. I can guarantee you’d glean about 2-3 years of continued afternoon love and action packed drama after it’s all said… Read more »

This is high drama? Please. This is boring and lackluster. Laura Wright being Wes’ beard has gotten old. Parking Lot Peter has got to go! He’s involved in nearly every storyline, and is a horrible actor.

Well I’m glad Shilo finally dead. It’s been dragging on way too long. I am all for anything Cassadine so I hope this next phase brings lots of them back it’s the best time ever and the Cassadines are fighting. I just wish Luke was here. Can’t wait for the rightful heir and his son to come back. Get the drift

I am just glad that the whole “Dawn of Day” story is over or is it thanks to that snoopy nurse. Coby; ex-Shiloh is dead. You have to give Coby a lot of credit for his creepy portrayal of Shiloh. Had he not made that very short stint on Y&R, I’m not sure that GH would’ve discovered him. Yeah, the wedding of Valentin and Nina won’t happen, thanks to Sasha unburdening herself, Cassandra Pierce, Leisel and the codicil coming to light that will bring Valentin down. Nikolas will be back (remember that psychic telling Laura that her son was in… Read more »

I wonder if GH will ever return to the show I once knew and loved? Here are some issues with Thursday [9-26] and Friday [9-27-] shows. Why is it that Wylie has been kidnapped by Shiloh and Lucas stays at the hospital to tend to his patients? Why in the hell wouldnt Jason check to see if Shiloh was dead when he shot him? Why was Jordan questioning Sam and Jason like they just killed Edward or Lila? DUMB! Why did Willow have to confirm Shiloh’s body? Didnt Chase know who he was? And finally, why is it that Epiphany… Read more »

Oh dont prolong the juicy. Glad Shiloh is history and keep it that way… not a fan. Let Carly find her midding heart and let baby be strong and vibrant Sam should be found a hero as the nurse is arrested, who causes an uproar and shot by the PCPD.
OH Shash must reveal her secret at the nuptials and a new story line begin … Spencer the cad time to rane and those that threw him to the wolves find many days behind bars.

Cannot stand Shiloh Soooooo glad he died!!! YAY!
Cannot believe producers are actually having Sonny have another child!!! Ridiculous!!!! Stupid storyline of Sonny and Carly redoing vows! Mike marrying Yvonne was dumb too! Thank goodness for fast-forward for those days!!
Pretty much agree with ALL that was posted above!! Olivia yells too much! She better not take Roco away from LuLu! Bring Franco back! Where’s Griffin? Where’s Nicholas? Make Ava happy and bring him back and let those two get together!!!
Make this show more exciting to watch before it gets taken off the air! I’ve been watching it from day 1!!!!!
Please!

Re: Valentin’s bachelor party. That karaoke song he did just about put me into hysterics. I know the man can sing, as I’ve heard him at the Nurse’s Ball, but today he sounded like his underwear was pulled up to his neck! I’m sure it was probably him, but the lip syncing just didn’t go with the music. Somehow made him appear ridiculous.

Valentin is an irritant, Miss Vi—-a Quasimoto facsimile.
He can sing, but I agree, that was dumb—-yuck!!
Not only that, but he butchers the French language—he keeps calling Charlotte “petit”… she’s a girl—-should be “petite”, where the last “t” is stressed.
I am done with him and fakeNina. Such a change in personality—-such forced acting on her part.

Can’t really tell if Michael is a Dr. Frankenstein yet……I could never picture him as a baddie…..but, associating with unsavory Nelle, does give me pause.
Oh, by the by….(aside)–I knew, even before she left, that Hayden had not lost Finn’s baby—-I mentioned that fact a few times—And, many of us expected her return.
What are the chances Finn and Hayden will get back together? What about Nikolas and Ava?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What’s Up With Elizabeth?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, finally moved the story of the haunting of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) along a bit, after it has been a very slow build for the audience. As it turns out, and with the new developments, it appears that Liz has been going in and out of a catatonic state, while sleeping walking.

With a tip from Violet (Jophielle Love), Finn (Michael Easton), who is chatting with Gregory (Gregory Harrison), recalls Liz was having trouble sleeping and was that she given a sleeping aid. He thinks he may be on to something so he decides to go to Liz’s house to talk to her.

Meanwhile, Liz comes to her house and tears Finn and Violet out of the picture that Violet drew, and then gets a scissors and starts cutting pieces off of the drawing, bit by bit.

Cameron (William Lipton) comes home and see his mother.  She does not respond to him and appears in a trance-like state. He is getting more upset by the moment, and then Finn arrives on the scene.

Finn is able to get the scissors from Liz, and also get her to snap out of her trance.  Liz talks with Finn and wonders what is happening? She doesn’t even remember how she got home.  When Cameron fills Liz in on what she was doing … cutting up the drawing and all … Finn tells Liz he believes she is the one who is haunting herself.

In tears, if what Finn is claiming is true, then it is she who is responsible for slashing her dress, setting fire to Franco’s studio, and hitting Chase over the head.  In that moment, a teary-eyed Liz recognizes that something is terribly wrong, saying, “What’s happening to me?”

Finn promises Liz they will get to the bottom of this as Cameron looks on.

So, what is happening to Liz and why? Is this just a case of another sleeping pill storyline on soaps, where someone does not recall their actions or where they are going in the middle of the night a la Nighttime Hope on DAYS? Is someone controlling Liz to make her do these things?  Is something else physically wrong with Liz causing her behavior? Share your thoughts on this storyline … and where you think this is all heading via the comment section below.

GH Alum Sydney Mikayla Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination, Decision To Exit & Her Former Co-Stars

It’s been quite the banner year for Sydney Mikayla (Ex-Trina Robinson, GH) thus far, and she topped it off with her second Daytime Emmy nomination, when a few weeks ago she landed in the Younger Performer in a Drama Series category.  That means, Mikayla will be vying for the gold statuette, but also against some of her dear friends and former co-stars from General Hospital.

Back in March, Mikayla revealed she was leaving the ABC daytime drama series to focus on college full-time where she is a freshman at UCLA. With Sydney’s departure came recasting the role of Trina and the part went in to the capable hands of Tabyana Ali, who is currently appearing on the soap and carrying on the Trina Robinson torch.

As the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are just around the corner (they air live next month on June 24th on CBS), Michael Fairman TV caught up with the very busy Mikayla, to get her take on all things Emmy including: the scenes she chose for her nominated reel, working alongside with Nicholas Alexander Chavez and creating what would become the popular “Sprina”, the factors that led to her departure and more. Here’s what Sydney shared below.

 

Your former co-stars and fellow ‘Younger Actor’ nominees, William Lipton (Cameron) and Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer) appeared on my Daytime Emmy Nominations livestream special, and both share how thrilled they were that that you got nominated.  I know you’re friends with them, but they just could not have spoken more highly of you.

SYDNEY:  That’s so sweet!  I’ve loved working with them for so long.  It just feels so great to know that they said that.

Photo: ABC

What was on your Emmy reel submission that landed you the nomination?

SYDNEY:  I was a little bit nervous this year, more than last year, because last year was the first time that I ever had a storyline.  So, for this year, I was definitely like, “I’m not really sure how this is going to go,” because there’s just so many new elements that were happening with everything that was going on, for example: Trina getting a more acclimated relationship with her mom, and then we had Cyrus (Jeff Kober) come in for a little bit.  I chose the best moments that really showcased my acting, even though it wasn’t a cohesive storyline from start to finish on my reel.  I’m really glad it worked!  I was a little more on pins and needles for this one, and ultimately, it turned out great.

Photo: IG

Was Nicholas Alexander Chavez in any of the scenes you submitted?

SYDNEY:  He was! I got to show that soft side of Trina, which I really didn’t think we got to see, especially in my first Emmy reel, and her being vulnerable.  We never see Trina really make a mistake, so that was really fun.  Not that her relationship was a mistake, but more that we never get to see her slip up or say the wrong thing, or just put herself out there, and put her heart on the line. I enjoyed being able to play that and then being able to put it in my reel.  Nicholas just made it so easy … what an amazing co-star.  He just made me feel so comfortable.  It was just really fun to do and to include.  I also had scenes with the teen scene …there’s five of us! Of course, I had to include Trina’s standoff with Esme (Avery Pohl).  I think, it was actually the last clip I put in on my reel.

Which was a great scene!

SYDNEY:  Yes, and Avery is so sweet, but she plays evil so well.  So, that was also so incredible to do, just that standoff of: ‘Who’s going to win!?  Trina?  Esme?  What’s going to happen?  What’s going to go down?’  No one knew, so that was really fun, too.

Photo: JPI

Did you include scenes between you and Eden McCoy (Joss) as bff’s Trina and Joss on your Emmy reel?

SYDNEY:  Oh, of course, of course! It was some of those heartfelt bestie moments of her just kind of consoling me, and making sure everything was okay between Trina and Esme. I like those heartfelt moments that Trina had with one of her closest friends on the show, and a great friend in real life, as well.

When you found out you were nominated, who was the first person you called … or was your phone blowing up and you were receiving lots of congrats?

SYDNEY:  This year, with being on a college campus and being in person for the first time, it’s really easy to get sick.  So, I was not feeling too great. I was sleeping in my dorm when the nominations came out.  I still keep in contact with my makeup artist from the show, Ali, and she’s so sweet.  We were texting, and she was like, “By the way, congrats”, and kind of kept texting me, and I’m like, “Congrats for what?” I looked, and I was like, “Oh my gosh!  I got nominated!”  So that was pretty funny, and I screamed through my whole dorm!  I posted a video on Instagram because I wanted to keep everyone in the loop, and I really do feel so grateful.  I feel all of the support from my friends, and family, and the fans of the show. I always try to make a video every year to try to just be grateful, or say ‘thank you’ because I really want to key everyone into this journey.  It was a little bit of a shock, but definitely in the midst of not feeling too well, it was the highlight of my day, for sure!  Now, I am feeling that heat of finals at school, but I am so excited. The Emmy definitely breaks up the stress a little bit, so I’m very grateful.

Photo: ABC

Was there somebody you called to let them know you were nominated, though?

SYDNEY:  I actually called Nicholas and William, first, to say congratulations.  William had called me before I had woken up, and then I called him back, and then of course, I called my mom and dad.  It was also a surprise to them.  I think it was just because I had been so laser-focused on school that looking at the Emmy nominations really wasn’t the priority this year.

Could you believe how popular ‘Sprina’ became so quickly?  They weren’t even a bonafide duo yet!

SYDNEY:  I could not!  I was really shocked, but I was excited to see how much the fans loved it, and how much the fans kind of lived through it. That in turn, gave us more of that ammo to really build that story and build that tension, and to always kind of play those moments in between.  Nicholas did a really great job of that, and of challenging me to always have that subtext, under the lines.  I was really shocked to see how quickly the popularity of Sprina blew up, but I’m grateful that the fans loved it for as long as they.  I hope that they continue to love it with Tabyana Ali playing the part.  She is such an incredible actress and powerhouse.

Photo: ABC

You were so popular in the role of Trina, and now Tabyana is bringing her take on the role.  Do you check in on GH? 

SYDNEY:  Don’t cancel me, but no! (Laughs) I don’t have time to watch TV!  I’m very serious.  I’ve just had so much going on here.  I’m also part of clubs, and leadership is also something that’s very important to me.  I love planning things, and when you’re planning things, that also takes up your time.  So, doing that along with school and just trying to keep my GPA up, I just don’t have the time to check in on it.  I think that was kind of part of it for me too.  On a spiritual level, I always believe that you can’t receive other things in your life, great things, acting or otherwise, until you are able to let things go, and so for me, I knew when I was leaving, I really would have to leave mentally and physically. As much as I love General Hospital (and I really cannot wait to see everyone in person, I really can’t wait to have that big reunion!), I really don’t feel like any part of me is still clinging on to General Hospital. I’m so grateful that the audience has also received Tabyana so well, because that’s exactly what I’ve always wanted.  So, I’m really happy for her, and I’m really happy for both of us.  I think we are both in a great place.

Was making the decision to leave GH a difficult one for you?

SYDNEY:  Honestly, no.  I always kind of knew in the back of my mind that it would have to come at some point because as much as I love General Hospital, I’d really been working for college for all of my life.  I wish someone had told me that colleges really don’t look at anything past high school because I was working really hard in elementary and middle school too!  But that’s my point, I’ve always had this dream of, “I’m going to go to college.  I’m going to get that second education.  I’m going to do really well.  I need to get my degree, and possibly even get my doctorate.”  We’ll see if I even want to go that far, but I know for sure that going to college and getting that bachelor’s was really important for me.  So, I knew that took precedence over anything else in my life.

Photo: ABC

What are you studying?

SYDNEY:  Right now, I’m studying sociology.  That might change.  Honestly, as a freshman it’s just been really general classes, still kind of general science, general math.  We’ll see as time goes on if I still want to stick with sociology. So, that’s also been really fun, and just meeting people, and experiencing the college life.

You’re in a gender-neutral acting category at the Daytime Emmys …   Outstanding Younger Performer. How do you feel about that because you’re actually competing against your former castmates, Nicholas and William, in the same category?

SYDNEY:  Coming to college, you meet a lot of people who are non-binary. I’ve always wondered how that would work when we are going to have more actors who identify as non-binary as our generation starts to get older and as we start getting cast in these movies. I actually think we are kind of moving towards the future and in the future, it will all be smooshed together for all of the categories.  We are going to eventually do away with the Best Actor and Actress because a lot of people don’t identify as either.  I think either way, whoever wins is going to win.  I’m just really glad to be nominated, and it works for me!

Courtesy/ABC

If a role came up in a movie or project that interested you, would you do it, or are you just only concentrating on your studies?

SYDNEY:  We’ll see kind of where life takes me.  It would definitely depend on so many things, of course, but if an opportunity were to present itself, it would definitely just be by a case-by-case basis.  Of course, I’m definitely open to doing things in summer too. During the school year, like I mentioned, it’s really important for me to get this degree.

Photo: SMikaylaIG/ABC

Is there any favorite moment you had from your time on General Hospital as Trina that you wish you could have included in your Emmy reel, but didn’t?

SYDNEY:  There were so many good moments!  If I could include any moment, I would include one of the blood scenes.  I had never worked with fake blood, and it was sticky, but ultimately a good experience.  I was acting, but there wasn’t much of me talking.  It was more everyone being concerned for me, like, “Why is she covered in blood?  What’s going on?”  So, I don’t think I included that as much, but if they just wanted me to include amazing makeup, then I could have put it in there!  So, it’ll always be in my heart.  It’ll always be in my personal reel, and I hope that counts for something!

Photo: TimSchaeffer

I’m assuming you like picking out a dress, and then walking the red carpet?

SYDNEY:  I do!  It’s actually funny because I don’t usually enjoy hair and makeup on a day-to-day basis, but I do think I enjoy the creativity of doing my own look for the Emmys.  I get to be somewhat a little different, like a super awesome version of myself.  I wonder, for celebrities who have to go to red carpets every week if they really like it, but for me to do it a few times a year, I really love it.  I love choosing the aesthetic that I’m going for.  This year, I’m definitely trying to do something classy and stylish.  I’m super excited for you guys to see because I’m beaming even as I talk about it now!

The Daytime Emmys are back to being in-person, after two years of being virtual.  Didn’t you have to tape an acceptance speech last year when you were nominated, in case your name was called?

SYDNEY:  Yes!  It was so funny, one of our producers, Nneka Garland, called me, and she was like, “Oh, it’s going to be in person,” and it just like, snapped for me: “Oh, this is going to be live!” I’m looking forward to that this year.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone, giving everyone real, in-person hugs!  I can’t wait!

So, are you rooting for Sydney to take home the gold in the Outstanding Younger Performer category at this year’s Daytime Emmys? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Courtesy/ABC

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

Photo: JPI

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

Photo: ABC

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.
