General Hospital: Stalkers … Gawkers …Talkers … You Never Know Who's Watching!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

The action heats up for the rest of the week on General Hospital after Jason (Billy Miller) and Franco (Roger Howarth) get into a heated argument.

What follows in the latest promo from ABC is that someone is watching Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) tries to mount a defense for Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), Julian (William deVry) is in major hot water, and Andre (Anthony Montgomery) and Jordan  (Vinessa Antoine) have sex!

The new teaser has the voice-over saying:  “Stalkers … gawkers … talkers!” Butt he big question is … who is spying on Sam and Jason? From all accounts and previews it would seem that it will turn out to be Franco.

Meanwhile, are you hoping Andre and Jordan, or Andre and Anna (Finola Hughes) end up together …  or is neither the right lady for the GH shrink? Is Alexis’ marriage to Julian about to go bust, and could Nina (Michelle Stafford) actually end up having a fling with Julian, or help bring him down once and for all?  Share your thoughts and theories on the latest GH storylines in the comment section below, and check out the latest promo.

I think Jasam’s stalker will be the little girl that Sam and Jason took in after baby Lila passed. With Sorasing, Hope should be around 15 or 16 years old by now. Just an educated guess is all.

This show is a mess. There are an infinite amount of useless characters on GH right now, more than there ever have been. Jordan and Andre are both boring and have no ties to the canvas, they need to go. Carlos needs to escape and take Sabrina with him out of town, for good this time. Get rid of Valerie, Curtis, Kiki and Hayden.

Franco and Nina are getting more tolerable, but they better not go down the psycho-Franco road again with him and Jason. That storyline was terrible back when James Franco played the role, and even though I wish Roger Howarth was brought back in some other tole than Franco, the character is starting to find his footing (only took 3 years). But if he begins getting obsessed with Jason again, it will send viewers into a tailspin.

Couldn’t agree with you more on all your points with on exception. I’m liking the chemistry between Kiki and Dylan! Can’t wait for Morgan to get out of the asylum and get consumed with jealousy! Then there would be this intense rivalry between Dylan and Morgan with Michael caught in the middle. I’d be on Team Dylan!

OK… now I have “one” exception…. ie: MIchael

I’m so over.. when he plays the moral compass… with Morgan… especially when he has scenes as the dutiful older brother… and son…. with Carly

argh! Morgan has to be sick of these scenes. done

I like your one exception… I have really come to “adore” Kiki… she’s a starlet

I like how she seems “shy” and enamored with Dillan… and he’s definitely struck by her

I’ve posted how I’d love to see Kiki out of the Corinthos’ orbit…

BUT… Morgan always finds his way… interesting

I still wish they hadn’t of made this storyline… like father like son…

argh! the Corinthos are just not all their

Dillon is 1000 times the man Moron is!

The show IS a mess. Where is Laura? YES–please let Carlos take Sabrina away AGAIN–this time FOREVER–because it looks like TPTB are going to twist the storyline around and say it was NOT Carlos who shot Duke.(Did you notice that Carlos NEVER says he did it; he always evades. I’m suspicious. And I still say TPTB missed the boat by not keeping Carlos–the actor is perfect for daytime–has the fire necessary to sustain a character–a good one, with complications of course–lol.

One good thing happened today; it looks like (on the promi) that Tracy is going to get rid of DR.O FANTASTIC–stop that craziness now. She NEVER should have been made head of the hospital–laughable and plain CRAZY move. Made the whole show into a CARTOON.

Again, I say: WHERE IS LAURA AND WHERE IS HER STORY? SHE is NOT a cartoon character–no matter how they have attempted to slaughter her character. Yes, I said ‘SLAUGHTER!

It’s been horrid–I think the snowball effect of making those murderers, Sonny and Jason, the heroes of the show way back in Guza’s time, has created an avalanche of disastrous proportions with the two subsequent head writers following the bad example he set. Aside from the two aforementioned killers, you have Dr O, the psychopathic, sadistic shrew running the hospital, Franco, the raping, serial killing sociopath working at the hospital as an art therapist, Nina, the kidnapping mental case running Crimson, Ava, the murdering mobstress and her murdering brother running around enjoying their freedom and their children. Murderers never receive justice and their spouses sacrifice their sense of ethics and morals to be with them.
Yes, I know Luke Spencer was an anti-hero, and he was a deeply flawed character. But he externalized that internal battle between good and bad and viewers got to be part of it, rooting him on when the good triumphed over the bad.
Now, there is no sense of gratification which usually comes in the guise of second hand vindication and the murdering scum bags roam around as if they were the good guys.

I agree Nancy. I was so excited when I saw Laura together with Dr. Kevin. I think they make a good couple, and he could help her figure out Helena’s message. We haven’t seen them since?

I agree… about Laura… I was immediately… taken… when Dr. Kevin Collins
happened on the scene… giddy

I think he’d be a GOOD match for her

I like your prop of Carlos:

“…TPTB missed the boat by not keeping Carlos–the actor is perfect for daytime–has the fire necessary to sustain a character–a good one, with complications ”

IF GH insists that Sabrina is a MUST… ( I have learned to really like her)

surprisingly… she’s matured and is even too good for Michael… and I wanted them to be a couple… if it solidified Sabrina staying on the show

IF… and I hope GH just up and gives Carlos a life in Port Charles… with Sabrina… bring on the complications… he’s FUN to watch and REELS with the whole cast… OK.. we’ve all read this multiple times

the three couples that GH insists on featuring… is what’s throwing this show in a tailspin… spiraling

Sonny and Carly
Jason and Sam
Julian and Alexis

they trot out Carly to get in every ONE’s face… I think GH is going to try and force Carly on Dr. Finn… just like they forced her with Jason… HER “bff”

they show Jason one upping his bravado and manhood… all the time
I so agree with you tho… Billy Miller looks dumbstruck with his scripts.

the coupling these two “constantly” do … woah stop … watching Alexis brag to her daughters… oy! stop

thank the serial heavens for Tracy and the Quartermaine

they need to stop Dr. Griffin from going too far on the forgiveness thing… and MOVE his character … is he ??? in transition… that thread just had me rolling LOL
get him involved… with … Liz or Nathan… just delve in to what’s happening… this thing and or borderline thing with Anna… alright already… the whole town knows your Duke’s “son”… they need to capitalize on how quickly the audience took to him

OK big disgruntle… i’m “over” Sonny and his mobster manic … honestly ! it’s LOL to watch his character machismo… when he’s not being “respected”
rolling… especially when he’s in a tizzy about Julian and Carlos…

has any one ever noticed in his scenes with Kristina… it seems like he always has this “ready to laugh” when he plays out this is she or isn’t she a lesbian… I find that to be REALLY OFFPUTTING…

at least GH seems to be having Sonny “back off” of his kids relationships.. and they really have him lathered up back in the mob… theatrics indeed

that felt good.

BRING BACK :

Mac and Felicia
Brad and Lucas
Bobbie… just bring her back.. she should fight with Laura over Kevin
Heather Webber any one ?

GH ! do not lose momentum… lay off of this stupid Jason and Sam involved any where near Franco… Roger Howarth is just too good to waste… Liz is ON

Dr. O should have left with Faison and Britt. I cannot stand O! Steve Hardy is spinning in his grave!

I agree with most of your post except Nu Kiki has grown and her and Dillon have possibilities, for sure.

Franco and Jason will heat up and then Roger and Billy’s contracts will expire!

Absolutely agree, Jimmy. The show is in dire straits. It’s awful. I find it to be very boring and/or nauseating Most of the characters are awful, as are the storylines. Characters are seen and then not heard of/from again for weeks or months even and storylines are dropped. It’s a complete travesty.

Sam and Jason make me sick..
I hope whomever the stalker is has a bullet with Sam written on it ahaa!
I like Billy/Jason but when yuck Sam is in the frame with Jason I gotta FF, and that makes me really poed..

I hope Franco’s tumor has grown back and he will WOW me with his hidden darkside..

Julian, Sonny and Carlos– if they are going to portray them as mobsters then do it and stop making them pansies..

(( of course Alexis and Julian’s marriage will end.. the day they got married they have been written to part – soap writing 101 .. we all know that..

I like Jason and Franco getting ready to dance, that’s about it for now..

Julian IS in the mob. Surprised? NOT!

Alexis IS stupid. Surprised? NOT!

Right, Nancy. And now NLG is acting all shocked that Julian is a bad guy. She KNEW he ordered the hit on Duke before she married him.

yeah, it was only a matter of time… for NLG to pull out her supreme court Justice robe

I mean really… her daughters know she’s up to the gills in MOB…

for the first time… Molly has disappointed me… she just went way overboard the other day… her tirade even made me angered…

who speaks to their parents that way

which was all just a snowball affect to Alexis seeing her marriage crumble… so quickly

Notice when a “Mobster” kills a main character they are always written into redemption! Julian will kill this punk kid who witnessed Duke’s killing because the character is a no name and fell no remorse!

hey Timmm..
the ”punk kid” is probably a step in cameraman getting his 15 minutes of fame .. ahaa!
And– I spit on ”redemptions” ..

((if one is bad he is bad and needs no redemption for being whom he is))

We’ve just gone through a long, dreary winter in real life on many fronts, and it’s not over yet. So this is not the news I wanted to hear or look forward to. Hoped never to see a reboot of Franco/Sam/Jason story. Ugly story. And in general, not too warm and fuzzy about “stalkers, gawkers, talkers” scenarios.

Yeah, pretty silly promo!

“I’m NOT giving up on Roger Howarth”

totally agree… this PROMO just does not bode well… for his character

reads infantile immature dumbed down… to fit the characters of Jason and Sam

sigh

their matching leather jackets and longing looks are cutesy cutesy

so it looks like the eye witness to dukes shooting has been killed ………………wow!!

Surprised? NOT! lol!

Elm& Nancy D…Especially when MF didn’t announce a new character coming to GH. But gotta admit, he made the most of his brief chance.

Andre is ok but he hasnt much chemistry with Anna or Jordan…i actually like Anna and Paul…Andre and Jordan have sex-i find that laughable and not in a good way…like a couple in bed suppose to mean something-its only a filler moment-maybe if Andre and Anna were becoming a couple and she finds him in bed with Jordan(her friend) then that is a story but just showing a couple in bed isn’t… Andre and Jordan are barely together and already they are in bed?-again no romance there…it would be nice to have them go out-dinner? A movie? Dancing? but i guess that is impossible for todays writers to write…its lets just put them in bed and thats all they need to do to prove they are a couple?…Now ive seen many bedroom moments in my 50 plus years of soap watching but in the golden oldies days couples had their moments before ending up in bed but today its like no one would watch that-WRONG!!!…its Nathan and Maxie talking in bed or Jason and Sam and so on…good to see Jason and Franco in a fight but i find the confrontation scene a little weak-Billy Miller is a fine actor but he doesnt do toughness very well here..in any case GH is ok and i dont watch everyday but im like that with Days too but both shows could use a little humor every now and then but not too much campiness…hope thats Helena watching…bring back crazy Heather-she needs to knock off Nina-at least try to….jmho

Totally agree with everything you’ve said. What happened to anticipation and longing in love stories…I guess modern attention spans just don’t welcome that.. I do disagree about Billy’s angry scenes, though. He scares me a little, in the best way, that is. His anger turns me on. But I digress.

Agree, BUTT, I have a question for Mr Michael Fairman. Were you engaging in word play when you wrote “butt” in the above posted blog?

Take a look at the hands of the person in the hoodie. They don’t belong to Franco. They look feminine; and I know they could always do that to deliberately throw us off, but I think it’s that new character, Amy or Liz.

I hope Andre and Jordan end up together. I like seeing Anna in the cat-and-mouse game with Paul, not that I want them as the end-game.

As for Alexis and Julian, I hope that battle through this latest crisis. The same goes for Franco and Nina. Until there is concerted effort to resolve any problems, I’d be more interested in watching these couples try and work things through; not give up after one week of fighting.

I hope Alexis and Julian DO NOT battle through “this latest crisis.” Wasn’t their marriage in crisis? LOL!

love your first para… had me laughing… in a very good way

I do not want to see Franco with feminine hands… I am really excited about how the new station nurse… ala Amy Vining… WHAT A GREAT IDEA, GH ! I hope she can act her socks off… this should really be a big hit… if her acting chops trigger

I don’t think Anna is going to end up with either… Andre or Paul… love how she said… ??? how she abandoned her ethics… that she would never “murder” any one… and this went a long way… in helping me along… with this convoluted mess…

OK… I love that GH may be “redeeming” Carlos… because Jeffrey Vincent Parise.. is exceptional ACTING… he’s capable of mix and mingling with the whole cast… just turn the page… and get him back… I think he’d be a great love interest and potential…. with all the women… he has a dastardly charm… he has to be making people laugh….his thin swag is omnipresent…

thanks to Finola Hughes… acting tour de force to get out of this story and move on now… we know the pain she’s been in… and just as Carlos told her right out of the cellblock… Duke was no saint… he was in the mob… and it could have been either or… with the gun shots….

I read in a recent SOD issue…how Finola Hughes mentioned… what fun scenes she shared with JVP…

I will say… what is the point in featuring… Sonny and Anna ??? after this Carlos story wraps up… and Anna finding he way back to justice and right side of the law… she and Sonny have no reason to mix …. I saw this as just another reason GH continues to prop Sonny and Carly all over the canvas

as for Julian and Alexis… can we say… Nina… falls in love and passion ignites and affair ensues rightfully !

GH is in the right path tho… in trying with everything the writers can muster… to redeem the spiral… Franco and Nina have been in. two solid actors … for whatever reason…the audience jus hated… never took… I love Roger Howarth and Michelle Stafford…

answer: Julian and Nina…. Franco and Liz

as for your point….. wow this show has problems

in couples working things out…. that seems to be happening.. and will happen… for Maxie and Nathan… and Lulu and Dante.. which I’ve posted is fine.. by me… as GH needs some happy couples.. by the same token… this writing regime.. doesn’t know what to do with their couples

these writers are spinning and turning… so off chart… lost course… HELP!

Stalkers … Gawkers …Talkers and SNOOZE!

Now, Timm, be fair. It could be an exciting new character like….Andre…or…I see what you mean.

I know, I just HATE being teased! One thing for sure, you know the eyewitness to Duke’s murder will be the one killed and not Carrrrlos. It was stupid of the Jordan [Not too bright anyway!] to let the key witness wander off into the dark. Wouldnt you want to protect him? DUMB! If Julian had any balls he would kill Carlos AND Anna MAY just have an ounce of gratitude towards him. An OUNCE!

You got that right–SNOOZE!

Well, since GH is touting a couple of new characters coming on, I’ll take a wild guess that it’s one of them. I hope it’s not Franco..Isn’t there a middle ground between making him mischievous or a raving maniac? Doesn’t look like it so far.

Jordan has a thing for her ex brother in law Curtis, so the fact she has sex with Andre means nothing–I think her and Curtis will eventually be paired off. I don’t like Anna with any of the men mentioned, I think she had more chemistry with Faison- she is strong powerful woman and all these men seem like wimps next to her even Paul–now Anna with Sonny or Julien would be interesting, but I think hell would have to freeze over for either one of those pairing to fly. Don’t like dark Franco, nor did I like vanilla, Franco, there has to be something in the middle right? Jason was more interesting when he was Jake Doe- now that he is Jason he needs a story line other than sleeping with Sam all the time– new pairings that have possibility Kiki and Dylan; Tracy and Finn; Kristina and Griffin (if he is transgender and she is fluid they will make the most unique couple on daytime)

I really am so nonplussed… with Hayden… now… because of how disrespectful.. she’s been with Nicholas… OK.. Nicholas has a let in not thinking with his head

for that matter… Hayden… and it was going going HOT… and now… I don’t care if Nicholas and Hayden ever get back together

to do this… I truly thought… Hayden and Curtis have a sensual chemistry that could be worth exploring

but I also see Curtis involved with Jordan… this could be a triangle worth exploring

I hope someone agrees.. that it’s a little too late… for Nicholas to take Hayden back

move on my man…

what about… Nicholas Olivia and Ned… LOL

rambling… anything to get Hayden out of Nicholas life

Valerie needs to stay. Valerie needs a better storyline. I like Kiki and Dillon together. As long as they keep Valerie and Dillon stay out of Dante and Lulu orbit then they should be good to go. I just find Dante and Lulu and Nathan and Maxie boring.

I could not agree with you more. Lulu and Dante are a whiny couple. They need to take a trip around the world like forever.

I like Valerie… I think she’s CUTE as a button… especially when her hair is straightened out and when she’s gussied up… WOW

although… i’m always reminded… how it seems Brads ex-wife… Rosalie was passed over.. when Valerie happened on the scene…

which is neither here nor there.. but the actor who plays Rosalie… for me was a surefire hit

I don’t expect that Valerie.. well ever play center stage… but she has a presence that’s not offputting in any way… not “meh” either

when a character is intriguing…that should bode well for her character.. I like the thing she has … with Curtis

I sometimes find Dante and Lulu… and Maxie and Nathan… to be so bubblegum

that I’m even glad that Dillon is out of that scenery… so here’s hoping.. Dillon and Kiki spark

I know that the bread n butter of soaps is couples but omg can we please stop trying to pair Anna right now with anyone on the canvas, I don’t think any guy right for her is right and Andre is to boring, Paul is to weasel like, unless they bring back Robert or create a character similar to Robert then right now there’s no one, plus try to remember back in the Anna days, she’s a one women gal, she’s not into triangles or stealing some women’s men.. Anna always had one guy and the rest were either exes or just friends. She never gave Mac, frisco,or Sean any mix signals, they were just her guy friends so let’s keep it that way with her new guy friends like Dante, griffin, Nate, Andre and even sonny now. Bring Robert back or get some hot loyal kick ass wsb guy to come in.. Big no to Andre and Paul !

Aria, thats a great idea, if Tristan Rogers is not coming back, create an older “Robert Like” gentlemen from the WSB days to buddy up with her against Paul and then fall in love with him.

Ok my turn- I am a devoted GH fan, but the show is terrible right now. No intriguing storyline at all…
I like Sam and Jason but please spice it up some!!!
Valerie is useless, so is Sabrina and Carlos, and so is Nathan. I like the new doctor, looking forward to that story and finding out what is up with him. Lucas, Felix, and Christina are unnecessary. I love Dylan – he is hot! Maybe when he gets it on with Kiki that could be fun! I liked Nina and Franco, but I just wish he could be normal and not change again to being psycho as it looks like they are doing. Dr. O- go away, she is not needed anymore. Anna is pivotal but the DA is too much. Dante and Lulu need to move to a house and start a normal life and stop living in a studio with a kid. Julian and Alexis are great, why do we have to bring him back to the mob for her to have another heartache?
UGH!
Like someone else said- too many people on the show, you can ‘t get into any story, they are just all mediocre! Come on GH! Frankly I am still bitter we lost Patrick and Connie/Kate (she was a dynamite actress)!
Carly and Ava and Sonny and Maxie are fantastic talent- give them something good to work with!

Li, your right, too many characters! Scotty Baldwin has great chemistry with Franco, Laura and Kevin were intriguing and I love Ric Lansing. USE THEM!

I hope neither woman ends up with Andre — he’s a cardboard cutout of a character at best.

A Nina/Julian fling could HOT in the hands of the right writing team (unfortunately that team is not Jean and Shelly).

I think the person watching Jason and Sam is either Raymond Berlin, father of Rachel Berlin and master of the off-camera Ponzi scheme or green card cravin’ French-Canadian Claudette, ex-wife of Nathan. Whoever it is, I think they have a thermos full of strong coffee and a case of No-Doze within reach because they’ll need it if they’re watching that pair…

I guess GH is chickening out on Kristina’s storyline since they just introduced a new male character.
I cannot handle another screeching moment from Nina. Make it stop GH; she is NOT enjoyable to watch!
The last few episodes of the show have been pretty uneventful, I must say. Looks like Carlos will be let off the hook but hopefully Sonny will kill him off. Does anyone really need Sabrina back on the show?
There are so many damn characters on this show, I don’t even know who is coming or coming anymore! Seriously in need of some trimming.
Doesn’t even seem like anyone has a story…. just some scenes here & there to keep everyone active. Who are we rooting for?

I was completely thrown…. LOL

YES YES YES

a Ric Lansing…. sighting

va -va – voom

“Who are we rooting for? “

Guess I’m in the minority, but I’ve been enjoying the show lately. It’s not perfect by any means, and I agree with some of the points of several of the posters here, particularly about characters I can do without. But I’ll take what’s happening now over the cheesy cartoon that Ron Carlivati turned the show into any day of the week, with people pulling off masks like an episode of Scooby Doo, having sex in a mausoleum, characters falling off the roof of the hospital and getting barely a scratch, killing off beloved legacy characters for no reason, I could go on and on….

It’s abundantly clear that GH needs a new writing team. When the only things interesting to me, a longtime viewer, are Hayden and a potential Kiki/Dillon relationship, something is wrong. It’s like the writers really don’t know what to do with all of the characters and are constantly just marking time. Ugh.

I think the writing has been good its just there are too many characters and not enough focus!

If rumors are true they are cleaning house over there! Big problem they need a base to fall back on they need a total revamp hate to see a show get cancelled but they will if they don’t tighten the stories up. As for RH/Franco he actually acts opposite Becky I don’t feel like he is doing stand up comedy. But noooo I do not want a romance

Jean & Shelly are the Queens of Snooz ..
Y&R fired them putting 4.3 million people to sleep ..

J&S are the only writers to take Y&R down to it’s lowest numbers ever..

Anyways; I have said it numerous times;
Jean and Shelly are the wrong writers for GH..
They are not GH, not at all..
they should write for the Waltons and not for General Hospital ,,

“…J&S are the only writers to take Y&R down to it’s lowest numbers ever.. ”

so many posts called this

the dread ….slaughter

rankles plus

I hate that the show chickened out on the of fallout of a couple storylines. Like Liz lying to Monica and Jason and Sam for months on end and what Lulu and Johnny did to Valerie. Why was only Carly made at Sonny for lying to his family for weeks on end about being able to walk.

And speaking of “not knowing who’s watching”, how stupid is Alexis using home printers, et al, in dealing with the Carlos case? She gives new meaning to unethical. When that cute guy who came forward as the eyewitness ends up floating in the harbor, she can share the blame for it with Jordan. No police protection on a case of this magnitude? Jordan is starting to make Dante look like Sherlock Holmes! And is it just me or was she smirking all during that poor kid’s interview? I half expected her to say, “Don’t you know I have a nail appointment to keep?” Port Charles’ finest strikes again. I’m rooting for Carlos only because Mr. Parise is a wonderful actor that I’d like to see stick around and Julian (sexy or not) makes my skin crawl.

We need Liz back and Jason & Sam are boring, Jason was perverted today about their barn sex. Not liking that at all. Liz needs to get together with Griffin and then Jason will accuse her of neglecting Jake but it’s funny how he spending time with Sam during his own kids crisis as Franco nicely pointed out .

Jane, I get the feeling Billy was trying to inject some life or fun into the otherwise ponderous dialogue given to these two. We’ve seen that naughty, sexy humor when he played Billy Abbot. He’s only been able to display it sporadically as Jason. I hope the writers can add that sense of fun into nu-Jason and quickly. Otherwise, they’re only using part of one of their greatest assets’ charms and talents. At least they’re letting his hair grow back. Can’t stand that “new” look Michael and Julian are sporting.

In fairness, I do like Monica and Tracy bonding and Dr. O’s breakdown. But those are brief moments in a torrent of blah.

Shay if you are out there I have a masters in business an now in two weeks a bachelors the political science! I fear for this nation criminals socialist blowhards and yet the American people follow like sheep to a slaughter. Good luck to all of you soap fans I hope nothing but good things happen to all of you! God Bless!!!!

And if I ever insulted you take it as a brainless moment! All of you take care! And can’t believe I called the Sage story in Y &R mosst definitely losing my touch

Well done, k/kay!!!! Congratulations! An MBA….what an accomplishment! And a political science degree to top it off….that particular course of study must have been a truly wild ride given the massive dissention we are witnessing on “college campi” these days, although I’m sure you were more than up to the task! Needless to say, it’s a subject with which all Americans should have to be wholly acquainted before they are allowed to vote! (As a political junkie, I consider it a matter of continuing education, not to mention, a civic responsibility…..I would love to be able to discuss so much with you!) At any rate, I’ve never felt insulted by you—nor the vast majority of people here—so forget that notion! You’ve always been an absolute delight, and I send likewise best wishes to you! Oh, and yes, I’m still here….just been very busy and bored silly by GH as of late, so I’m basically keeping up with recaps and only the occasional peek at the few characters I really enjoy……which require little comment at this time. Still hoping things in Port Charles turn around for the better and soon! Later!

Never scared for a moment I have a way of saying do you really want to go there? Insults roll off my back I woul love to see this country get back to people working feeling good about themselves etc etc ! And please everybody listen to your heart not Hollywood or Washington they all need to spend hours in a shrink chair!

Shay I had to prove to myself I could do it I have now ordered a Spanish course and sitting on the fence on the other language got to work the brain! My sister has dementia and I hope to be able to be a advocate for helping others deal with it

Here, here, k/kay!!! Perhaps you should add a degree in psychology to your already impressive list of credentials….you’ve well-pegged the situation we’re currently facing, although I do think that there’s finally been a political wake-up call amongst quite a good portion of the population….and it’s about time! Perhaps your admirable “fearlessness” is spreading…hey, it’s now or never! All I can add is that it should be a very interesting run-up to November! As for your new course of study, muy bien and buena suerte! The study of languages is so very interesting and it’s always fun to expand one’s vocabulary and mind in a new direction. I like to watch “International Mysteries” primarily in Italian and French ( with English subtitles) to build upon my basic high school/college course understanding, but the sky’s the limit with all the programming “en espana” that’s around. My local PBS has an entire channel devoted to it along with those said captions, which really can enhance your learning experience. As for your sister’s unfortunate condition, I am so sorry to hear of it….I’ve never personally known anyone who has suffered from such cruel diseases as dementia/Alzheimer’s—yet they obviously are absolutely horrible for not just the person themselves, but their family members, as well. Hence you would clearly be a passionate—and compassionate—advocate for this cause……which apparently needs a lot more awareness and education given the wholly appalling project which Will Farrell seemed to find an amusing prospect. I was so gratified to see none other than Patti Davis herself set him straight on that notion….despite her past indiscretions, she finally did her parents proud with that right-on rebuke of the so-called comedian. At any rate, it’s wonderful to have you back here with a bit more regularity now….I always enjoy reading your comments, k/kay, even when I don’t have the time to respond. Take care, and hasta luego!

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Courtesy/ABC

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot? Comment below.

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”
