Cute promo, but it does not really tell us anything at all. Plus, Disney-ABC needs to release these new promos, because I am dying to see them!

Not sure what to make of the generic promo except how great Josh Swickard looks in that red pullover. Another tease about Michael and the baby? More Carly & Sonny? Woweeee. On the plus side there’s Drew & Kim, Monica, Franco (boy, he has awesome hair) and Elizabeth… and how great Josh looks in that red pullover.

I love reading your comments, Soaphound– It’s one AM on the east-coast and I can’t sleep…. so, here I am, LOL. AHHH, that red pullover!!
I’m somewhat disappointed ……Willow is not a good match for Chase. She’s cute…..Too cute. He needs someone spicy ( as I was typing ‘spicy’, a chili pepper emoji popped up– so apropos!!
Methinks Willow is Wiley’s mommy!! And, Nina’s daughter….considering Kiki is gone, I must continue with the fantasy somehow….
I am going downstairs for some hot chocolate–hope it does the trick. I have an early class….
Nite….❤️

I had to come back to this, Soaphound…..I replied to you in the middle of the night ( insomnia) —-I guess my post did not make it?!
I had said that Willow is Wiley’s ( or is it Whiley?) mommy……at least, she thinks she is. What a tangled web …etcetera!! And, a shame!! I do not like the path this story is taking.
Same theme over and over, in every soap. The writing’s on the wall….pardon the pun.
From what I’ve read, as I brought myself up to speed after I started watching GH; didn’t Jason think Michael was his?
So, are TPTB using some kind or ironic ploy here?

But Celia, what is the purpose of this except to expose the baby switch, which Liesl seems bent on doing all by herself? Willow will think Wiley is hers when her baby actually died, right? So she’s being set up for double disappointment. Not right! Just so Michael can have yet another lady to romance/disappoint? Give Chase someone worthy of his sweet goofiness, not some tragic damsel with no sense of humor.

Hey, Soaphound…..I don’t like Willow’s character. Not for Chase. She is as boring as puppy-eyed Michael. They belong together. They could stare into each other’s eyes for eons and see nothing.
I wish I could ken where all this is going……why so many characters? Why is Liesl back? Will she be Ryan’s next victim….I will not be happy if she were brought back just to fill the quota of his killing spree…..Ryan should get rid of Lulu instead, in one fell swoop. When will Ava figure him out?
When will Stella tell forgot-his-name ( her lover from her past) that Curtis is their son?
The best thing watching ( caught up with all my soapies today) was seeing Felicia….this woman never ages–so beautiful!!
What is the point of Shiloh? Of Christina? Of Sam and her lap-dog, Jason? Is Shiloh ( Hank? Or whatever his name is) the mystery person texting Sam? I bet he was never a whichamacallit in Drew’s past…..thing is, my interest was not piqued and I don’t care……DOOL is the soap to watch right now. Both GH and Y&R frustrate me.
Happy New Year, my friend.❤️

SINCE we all know… that Lucas and Brad are not mainstay… just give the damned brat to Michael… let Carly bury him

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
