General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

Courtesy/ABC

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

I think its great I’ve been waiting and hoping the show would do a female centric episode and how fitting to do one w/ women right to vote. loving it, GH continues to stand out among the other soaps. I wish iTunes/ABC would make episodes of GH available again for purchase. they stop all of a sudden with the sept 11,2020 episode and ever since have not make new episodes available, this sucks, I loved being able to purchase GH episodes.

I’ll be watching and save it. When GH puts resources, it’s actors and minds to special stories, no one does it better.

A worthwhile message … but given all the methods of early voting this year (because of the pandemic & other reasons) maybe they should have aired it some time earlier than the day before the election?

If a person had not intended to vote and they are inspired (reminded, moved etc..) by this episode to stand in line on Tuesday with PPE in tow, it is 100% worth it and not too late.

Could be but-
It is mainly Boomers that watch GH..
they most likely have mailed in their ballads..
Not many Boomers are standing in line 3-6 hour to voe during a pandemic on Nov 3rd.

The passing of the right for women to vote might have been 100 yrs ago, but it is still a great reminder for everyone to continue to fight for their own right to vote. Especially when you see what’s happening this election year where there is voter suppression being waged which can make it more difficult to get to the polls or voting mailboxes. Then there’s even the even the threat of not counting legal votes.

JimL…Wouldn’t it be great if you could go back in time like Josslyn and Trina and meet your ancestor? Or maybe check Ancestry.Com.

Thank you for this GH. Thank you for airing such a momentous ( albeit the movement was considered extreme in 1888) and amazing period in our History. Thank you, Susan B. Anthony. Thank you, Elizabeth C. Stanton. Thank you, Amelia Bloomer ( you also gave women the privilege of wearing underwear; the bloomers–LOL). Thank you, Elizabeth S. Miller. Thank you, Anne C. Mattison—and so many more—-Thank you, Suffragettes for standing up to the establishment by fighting for women’s rights—civil and otherwise. Thank you for speaking up for all women—-for declaring us as human beings with equal rights and not just… Read more »

This episode has a FANTASTIC MESSAGE and provides a lot of historical information about women gaining the right to vote.

Upstate New York was key – Seneca Falls Susan B Anthony, Cady Stanton, and many many many more.

1920-2020

Port Charles is based in Upstate NY. The Suffragists should be very proud of this episode.

Go and VOTE! Whatever way you choose, but exercise your RIGHT. I will be wearing white, purple, and gold all day tomorrow, though I’ve already voted.

Excellent special today! General Hospital is more then a soap opera. The writers and actors are making a difference to educate viewers. I enjoy this show.

I think the Women’s Right To Vote special was very well done. And such an important, hard fought issue that we shouldn’t forget as time passes. I liked using the time machine to get us into the past. Carly may really frustrate me but Laura Wright is great when she plays these other cameo roles like Beatrice or Luke’s mom. But I really liked that the story focused on Josslyn (Eden) and Trina (Sydney) as they learned from their ancestors, and that Dr. Portia (Brook) was there with her own challenges in becoming a woman doctor. Kudos to them and… Read more »

The episode was written pretty well, outside of tying the idea of time travel into it. I kept expecting Al the hologram to pop out of a secret door in the middle of the scene to tell Joss & Trina what bad thing in history they were there to change.

(Yes, Quantum Leap reruns still air down here! It was a most unholy show.)

With all of the noise during this current election, bravo to GH for a wonderful episode. I had no idea it had been 100 years since women finally were able to vote. Great episode. Loved seeing all of the women actors!!

A 1st time;
GH had a 100% female episode.
All women, not one man..
That was awesome!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
