General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

Photo: IMDB/ABC

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.

I guess it’s a way to do a PSA, but I really couldn’t care about the GMA3 promo. These “news” and talk shows bore me terrifically stiff.

Well if i am the only who now wants more than anything for Sacha to be Jackie’s daughter…

That doesn’t seem likely, since Sasha would have to be older than Chase for that story to work. And that wouldn’t appear to be the case.

Presumably Robert would be Sasha’s father in this scenario, but I’m not really seeing that either.

I agree—not Robert’s daughter. But, it’s a soap—I’m sure ‘ye gods’ could think of something to accomodate the story, if they chose to go that way. How about Cyrus’ daughter? Oh, the irony….
There are many possibilities. Way back when, I had intimated Chase ( sp?) could be Finn’s son. Now, we know Jackie and Finn had a “one-night-stand”? What if they ‘met up’ several years later and “danced” again—another procreation? Vicious circle. Repetitive plots are the heartbeat of soaps.

Considering Cyrus seemed to have some sexual interest in Sasha when he was supplying her with drugs, I would certainly hope he’s not her father! It would only be slightly less creepy if he was her uncle, so that lets out Martin as well, I would suppose. If she had to be related to any existing families in Port Charles, I’d guess she’s a Quartermaine, from either the Celia or Jimmy Lee branches of the family tree. She actually has a resemblance to Celia (for those who can remember back that far). And at least that way, she and Mikey… Read more »

OK, Iam lost here. Where does this idea come from? Why would Jackie and Sasha be related? Help!

You are not—-I thought about it, myself, Bruni. However, my “farout” notions are mainly just that. So, it’s refreshing to see someone else think the same thought —at least, in this instance.

I love the creativity & cross promotion! GH is best soap going right now.

I can not get over Carly’s over the top interest in Nina’s finding out her daughter was Nel, other than the fact that she actually had something to do with Nel’s demise.
She used to accuse Nel with being obcessed with her, but it looks like the other way around now. If she had just told the truth from the beginning, it would not have blown over.

You know, Violet, whenever a movie becomes a hit, they say that executives then get together and try to mold every subsequent film the same way. I read that way back in 1970, any new ideas for plots were met with the question, “How can it be like “Love Story?”, the biggest movie back then. I think GH execs do something similar. They sit around thinking, “How can this storyline involve Carly and/or Sonny?”

You are so right! I forgot, this IS the Carly and Sonny show but try as hard as they can, somehow there is always some other characters that make it more interesting at least to me.

I watched before I read this and frankly, I had no idea it was a “cross-over” bit. So, I guess it wasn’t made very prominent.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
