On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, several stories are about to have a junping off point when they are revealed.

Unfortunately for fans of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers will need to wait till Monday to find out the ramifications since GH is preempted today.  In story, Dr. Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen) has come to see Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  He admits he has been following her.  After first being a little unnerved by it, Griffin asks Anna if they can meet publicly so he can tell her something.  But then he is called away to the hospital in the issue of Tracy’s (Jane Elliot) brain biopsy and condition, that he believes is not going to turn out to be Dr. Mayes (Matt Riedy) diagnosis of cancer, but something else.

Meanwhile, Anna calls Andre (Anthony Montgomery) asks him to meet with her.  She questions if he knows anything about Griffin, and why he might be following her.  Andre assures Anna to his best knowledge Griffin is a stand up guy.  Anna feels like she may have met Griffin somehow years ago, but can’t put her finger on it.

After Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) stands up to Dr. Mayes, he tells Griffin he wants him to figure out what is going on with his mother’s condition.  Griffin says he has seen something similar to this in Mexico.  Brad (Parry Shen) later happens by and tells Griffin he will help him gain access to the results of Dr. Mayes biopsy of Tracy.

Meanwhile at Wyndemere, Laura (Genie Francis) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) are preparing themselves for the reading of Helena’s will! Sam (Kelly Monaco) arrives for the reading as well, and after getting into a bitch fight with Hayden (Rebecca Budig) over her investigated the new Mrs. Cassadine’s background eventually speaks one on one to Laura.

It is in this scene that Laura apologizes to Sam for her part in covering up Jason’s (Billy Miller) identity.  After the women come to terms with that moment in time,  Sam reveals to Laura that Helena put a curse on her with her dying breath, something which Laura reveals she knows about all to well.   Laura reveals to Sam that Helena cursed her as well.   Later, when Sam meets up with Jason, and after he leaves, Sam realizes he left behind the plaque from the Quartermaine crypt with his name on it.  She touches it and Sam cuts her finger on it.  Is the Cassadine curse beginning to play out?

So, what do you think Griffin is about to tell Anna?  And while many have already read the previews that Helena leaves certain “gifts” behind for those attending her will reading, what would you have Helena leave behind for Sam, Laura, Nikolas, and others?   Share your thoughts and suggestions in the comment section below!

Griffin wants to tell Anna that he is her son, or her nephew. He is Leora’s twin, stolen at birth? Or, Alex’s child? Or Lindsey’s?
Baddie Charlotte absconded him and hid him somewhere, or gave him away.
Will David Hayward resurface? I may be way off base, but I know there is a connection between them….a familial connection. That’s why Dr. Munro is so familiar to Anna.

He could be Aiden Devane, having had facial reconstructive surgery. Yes, yes, yes…..rubbing my hands together, at the prospect/possibilities….doing a happy dance!!!!!! If some of the AMC’s beloved characters will return, whether recasts or not, would be my pleasure!

I’m really hoping griffin is related to Anna somehow Anna needs family in town.. Hope it’s not something dopey like duke incarnated or something like that, it’s not going to fly. I’m telling you griffin looks like a young Tristan Rogers. As for the other plots I hope Helena gives Liz some money for kidnapping little jake.

GH has become very transparent, and that means no suspense or mystery, just transparent..
Know what’s going to happen–
The second Anna said he looked familiar, I knew he was of Duke’s DNA..

0ooh when Tracy had her 1st sign of illness I said;
It was a parasitic brain infection, worms in the brain thing..
And, it will be, wait for it .. / too transparent..

You did, su. I remember…and so did I….as told by my husband. Malignant, benign or an infection. But, you were very sure it was an infection. You called it.
Timmm did suggest that Larry put something in Tracy’s drink….could have been some kind of fetid additive.

Hi, su,
I though that today’s episode held some suspense. Don’t you agree? Obviously, Griffin in a towel, sporting a scar on his lower left part of his abdomen was done for a reason. We were meant to see that…mystery and suspense.
I agree it is not the salivating suspense some of us expect, but I got to see Griffin’s exposed bod, again. Maybe next time he’ll be wearing just a loin cloth. ….KIDDING!!
Also, the name Griffin Fitzgerald Munro really seemed to have jarred Anna, albeit she made an Herculean effort to be impassive. That added a little suspense for me. So, Anna knows a Fitzgerald from her past. That interests me.
We were also treated to an innocent but charged interlude between Griffin and Maxie ( love her and those booties). Will something between them develop when Maxie finds out Nathan lied to her? ….waiting for Claudette!

Some reports are that he is Duke’s son, from another mother. If true, that’ll hurt!!!

Very interesting, Tristan….so many possibilities.

You called it, Tristan. You are right.
I must say, though, Anna seems to welcome these news, in a bittersweet way. I guess it hurts in a different way. She regrets neither father or son ever met. Sad.

Like i said under a different posting…he is her son or her sister’s son…

So did I, Jimmy. But, which sister? Anna had/has two. Alex and Lindsey, if I am not mistaken.

They cannot mention Anna’s family from AMC, because of the Prospect Park lawsuit.

ahhhh Anna has sisters.. I did not that..
hmmm then he may not be of Duke DNA ..
but geez how far back are they digging to grab a sister?
The doc. is about 30? so going back 30 years?

Didnt know there was two…thats interesting to know.

@jimh.
Hey, Jimmy.
I double checked with my Gran and she said that Anna had two half sisters; Alex and Lindsey (Aidan Devane Turner’s) mother. The sisters were borne of three different mothers but had the same father.
Charlotte Devane was Alex’s mother, and she was a witch, according to my grandmother. LOL.
Charlotte did so many despicable things; my Gran speculates that Charlotte could have kidnapped Griffin as a baby. So, he could be offspring to one/any of the sisters.

Thank you and your gran for that info about Anna’s sisters…i didnt watch much of AMC when Anna was there and barely remember much of her storyline-so unlike me…but yet i can remember stuff from the 60s and 70s when i was soooooooo young…lol

@Tristan.
Hey, Tristan,
Of course you are right….I forgot all about that, Tristan. It would have been an ok premise, though, no. ……and I would have absorbed every gripping moment if Lindsey were not dead after all.
This PROSPECT PARK thing will forever be looming over the soap to the end. Enervating!!Too bad TPTB cannot hand pick a few characters from Anna’s past on AMC.

@Tristan.
Again, Tristan, I must say how correct you were. I was way off base thinking it had to do with AMC.
I cannot remember who linked Griffin to Duke on these boards, but that person was on right on target. Fitzgerald is an Irish name…..was Duke Irish or Scottish?

Is Helene even dead…she could leave Laura her wardrobe, Sam her brain, Alexis a bra and Nik learns he is bankrupt and has to move in a trailer park with Hayden/Rachel?whoever-whatever she is, Liz learns Jake is a clone and Jason learns he isnt Jason….lol

LOL

especially the trailor Park Nicholas… this will really test the allegiance of Hayden, now wouldn’t it

it seems the griffin munro mystery has taken hold and eclipsed… every one else… that being Jason; Hayden/Rachel; and ???

I must say… i’m intrigued to know… who Claudette is… ??? I think it’s Kiki real name ??? finally… “they are” ? getting to the mystery of Nina possibly being Kiki long lost child?

Hi, Patrick.
At the risk of patting my own back, lol…..as soon as a fuss was made by bringing focus to that glove in Nathan’s tux-side-pocket, I posted the fact that there was a mystery woman behind that glove. Someone else, I think Rose, responded by saying that whoever it was, still held meaning to him for having had it and by putting it back in his pocket without disposing of it. Good call, Rose…it does have meaning for Nathan, which will open a nasty, smelly can of worms.
I took a wild guess and I was right. Yeayyy!! LOL.
Nathan and his mother, talked about Claudette briefly, I believe. From the little I understood, Claudette was not a nice girl snd broke Nathan’s heart. It was left at that.
However, I do believe Claudette will show up in PC trying to ‘revive’ what, I hope, was a torrid, tumultuous , but soooo destructive love affair. As I previously mentioned….there is a love triangle waiting in the wings….

I wanted to post this….

I was soooo taken… with ; Felicia… what a mother tigress

just being so… doggone cute and upfront… without being confrontational…

Felicia brought Nathan…. this black poodle… LOL here’s Claudette

Here’s my daughter Miaxie.. we’re on to you

buck up

LOL

Nathan.. he’s in for the log haul right… those looks just stifle any misgivings at time

loved how Maxie was right on point… LOL waking / shaking him… who is Claudette

I love women for their sixth sense and wherewithal

its about Timely for Nathan and Maxie to flex some muscle and wing

he’s earned his stripe… and Maxie gets to reign… with her man… and at Crimson

love all the other things about GH

outside of Jason and Sam… and Sonny and Carly ; i’ll throw in Julexis

there’s plenty that the GH headwriters need to catapult

Felicia is a DREAM… w/Big MAc

You’re welcome, Jimmy. My grandmother is 75, with a sharp wit and memory….sometimes better than mine. I loved AMC, but I can’t remember details as well as she. I was young and carefree, Lol…..I had never heard of Charlotte or Lindsey until Gran mentioned them.
I thought that the only link GH and AMC had was Anna, Alex, and Aidan. Was Aidan ever on GH? To be honest, I thought he was Alex’s son not Lindsey’s.

I TRULY – want – some thing… any-thing… to MOVE Laura !!!!

why shouldn’t Helena… in all her magnanimous fortitude… salute Laura… and bequeath Laura with POWER !!!!

Genie Francis NEEDS to focus on herself!!!

which is simply put : GH !!!! forever and day.. give Laura a storyline…
besides being the queen of virtue and if she eats one more candy bar…. I’ll shuck GH
again

I want that Helena has stipulated.. that Nicholas and Laura WORK together… and reign as mother and son… and fight for ELQ and fortress WindeMear… and catapult the Cassadine Dynasty

I’m already so over Jason and Sam; and Carly and Sonny

why shouldn’t GH give the Cassadine Dynasty some reign and Power… argh! Laura … if she continues to be mother Theresa… sexless… with no imagination… no pull…

hey Patrick..

The Cassadine Dynasty is a true sop power family and the Casidiones were/are the spark that started all the big fires, some a 5 alarm..

GH needs the Cassadines back, like yesterday..
I was more than disappointed when reading Easton will once again be a doctor when he would/could be an awesome Cassidine!

No, no, no monsieur Patrick! ELQ needs to get back to its rightful owners, the Q’s! That is THEIR company, it has always bern a part if their story and I wouldn’t want to see Laura pulled in yet again to anothet of Nic’s

i’m just impatiently waiting out… story time… for Genie Francis

what’s it going to be ?????

fans were clamoring for her return… and SHE IS GOLD !

that being said… I don’t want her to be just the token voice of reason… and a dutiful grandmother

was hoping Helena would bequeath …and stipulate that perhaps .. the Cassadine fortune is not as ailing as Nicholas stated… and that this gives Nicholas more power and reign at his disposal…

I certainly don’t think Laura would be globetrotting wonder woman espionage.. as long as it’s to Amsterdam to tell AG to forget about showing up to win his 8th emmy

this is Laura Time… just playing the waiting game… did J and S ?? write for Genie Francis when she was Genevieve ??? gosh darned it… I loved Genie Francis playing Genevieve… what verve get go and sure of her appeal

The last thing I want GH to do with Laura, after promising that Genie is going to have a big storyline, is to have Helena’s bequest to Laura to send her off on some “adventure” – meaning we don’t see her onscreen for 3 months. This woman is soap royalty and has been ignored and maligned enough by TPTB and, in my opinion, certain actors who would throw her under the bus rather than allow her to remind them of the glory of LnL. Give Genie her due and do right by her finally.

Yes, “do right” by Genie!

I think you may be right about this ‘adventure’ of Laura’s ….or a wild goose chase, Nancy.
I surely hope this ‘key’ will not take her search of ‘whatever’ too far. Maybe keep her within the confines/perimeters of PC.
But, as I understand it, Laura is no shrinking violet….would she embark for parts unknown in search of that which the key will unlock? Pandora’s box, mayhap?

I cant help but think Griffin may know something about Carlos.

Please just give Laura a story! A great story! Not coming back til this happens.

When I first saw Griffin in scenes with Anna I thought he could be a younger brother. I do not know off all Anna’s family connections. I know FH appeared on All My Children as Anna’s twin Alex. Thus a nephew may not be far off.

Today GH was perfectly decent today! Save for fast forwarding through the Sonny scenes, I actually found myself watching every scene with interest.
My favorite? Why that would be Laura educating Hayden on the dynamics of the Gatsby and Daisy romance.
Thank you, Laura. Because yesterday it was driving me crazy (and well all know that is a short drive for me) when Lizzy and others read Hayden’s inscription on the first edition of The Great Gatsby. Really, what kind of idiot would defile a first edition of an enduring classic such as The Great Gatsby with such a stupid and insipid inscription? Moreover, what kind of moron would write,”To my Gatsby from your Daisy” as if this was a wonderful romance? Either Hayden is a tone deaf idiot or she is engaging in Freudian slippery.
But dear, sweet, and insightful Laura admonished Hayden for her foolery and educated her on the nature of Daisy and Gatsby. Daisy, asserted Laura, is based on a common weed, the daisy, which stinks and dies quickly. The daisy does not contain the more transcendent qualities of other flowers such as the rose and thusforth, is not worthy of Gatsby’s love. Moreover, it is Gatsby’s obsessional love for Daisy (a love which cannot ever be quenched because it’s predicated upon imaginary pinions) which leads to Gatsby’s death.
Laura tells Hayden that she will not allow her to become her son’s “Daisy.”
These lines were beautifully written and reflected an understanding of The Great Gatsby. Finally, these lines were beautifully delivered by Genie Frances who was pitch perfect in her delivery.

The only thing that bothered me about Laura’s description of Daisy’s as being a “weed” is that daisies were always Laura’s favorite flower. There was talk in the 80s and 90s stating that. Fine analogy for Hayden, but Laura wouldn’t equate daisies to that. Oh well, another insignificant detail of rewrites that bothers me.

Harry 1, I, too, loved it that Laura put Hayden’s in her place. Wish she had gone on to quote the line from The Great Gatsby about “careless” people leaving their messes for other people to clean up.”

That line would have been perfect, Nancy. Maybe it’s coming?
I had forgotten that the daisy was Laura’s favorite flower. I never cared for daisies myself.

Well said Harry!

Continued…another of Nic’s wrongdoings. What I WOULD like to see is Jason aligning himself with the Quartermaine’s his real family…and help them to take back what was stolen.

I too want a great story for Laura, nut not at the expense of losing the woman she’s always been…loving, supportive, wise…at the same time action oriented when need be. They can make her dynamic withouy corrupting her.

As for the Cassadines, they alwayd been the evil yet mesmerizing clan. Unfortunately the writers killed them off. Hopefully some old and new sill start spfinging up to up the edge again.

I totally concur with you here, Rebecca and I think this might happen

hi rebecca1

Jason and Dillan will work together to get ELQ back..
It is inevitable that ELQ will be returned to the Q’s..

The cassidine are Aliens or something, they can not die they are immortal. lol
A Cassidine is never dead, as in dead … lol
I really would love a Cassadine invasion !

I totally agree… that ELQ will be back in it’s rightful place… at the “Q”

I just find it too .. ho hum… at every thing Jason does… spins or weaves in to gold… and he is merely toying with Nicholas… which bugs me

which simply put… all the story for Nicholas… will go by the wayside… as it has been

who doesn’t want good story for; Nicholas and mom Laura… I like the angst Hayden brings…

it just smarts that Liz is asking Sam to NOT stop her investigation in to Rachel… which is interesting to a point…

OK… I had wanted my new superman Nicholas to keep manning up… argh! Jason cant have it all

PS: I really was taken aback… when Carly and Jason were in the “Q” crypt right after the sublime Jane Elliott… magnified Tracy forge onward and upward

when Jason ripped out his ??? headstone… and Carly should never have even been in their…. knowing her history with the Q and her alliance with Sonny… it just reeked of tasteless… once again… she’s given the task of being all that and sharing with her bff his past.

altho… fans recall that neither Sonny or Carly have yet to tell Jason.. how AJ was murdered.

wow… lots going on

I have to give both of you…Harry and Su…exrra credit for deciphering my many typos! I’m constantly posting from ny phone and by the time I realize ny delicate lil fingers have hit the wrong key they’ve magically hit send!

And I agree with both of you…who agree with me. 😉

Doesn’t Anna have a twin sister? I thought she was married to Dimitri’s brother on AMC??

Yes, Nicky. Anna has a twin, Alex and another sister, Lindsey, who has died. Aidan Devane is Lindsey’s son.

Bryan Craig Teases ‘Who Could It Be’ in Response to General Hospital’s Returning Mystery Man

Since General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini dropped a major bombshell of what’s to come on the long-running daytime drama at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the guessing games have begun of just what former GH actor is returning to the cast this summer.

Speaking with ABC’s On The Red Carpet, as previously reported, Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

That has led to major online speculation that it could be anyone from: Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky), Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky), Ted King (ex-Lorenzo Alcazar), Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer), and Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) among others, that might be the gentlemen being referenced.

On Wednesday, responding to a post on the subject from Soap Opera Digest, Bryan Craig commented, “Who could it be ….”  Now, clearly he can just be having some fun with the situation to throw fans off-track, or he might be giving us a tease of what’s to come.

Before exiting GH, the actor won two Daytime Emmys for his performances as Morgan Corinthos in 2016 and 2017.  Craig appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared most recently in Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel, plus several independent films.

The character of Morgan was killed-off the show when Olivia Jerome set a bomb that exploded in the car that Morgan got into, but was meant to kill Olivia’s brother Julian Jerome. Morgan’s death caused a huge split in the relationship of Carly and Sonny.

So, do you think Bryan Craig is just having fun with the audience, or do you think it’s possible he is the big return Frank Valentini is talking about? Comment below.

General Hospital Daytime Emmy-Winning Directing Team Remembers Johnny Wactor: “He Came to Set Every Day with a Smile of Gratitude and a Love-Filled Hug for Everybody”

It has been a rough year and a half for the General Hospital family losing so many beloved cast members and producer, Nneka Garland.  Now, the Daytime Emmy-winning directing team has spoken out about the emotional toll it has taken on everyone associated with the show, and most recently, with the heartbreaking murder of Johnny Wactor (Ex-Brando Corbin).

The actor was shot back in the wee hours of the morning on May 25th by a masked gunman who was part of three car thieves trying to steal the catalytic converter from Wactor’s vehicle. Johnny came upon the scene after he finished his bartending shift in downtown Los Angeles and was walking a co-worker to their cars.

Last Friday at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, GH was named Outstanding Directing Team for a Daytime Drama Series. Following their on-stage victory, the group stopped by to chat with Michael Fairman TV on the Winners Walk.

Photo: NATAS

Directors Robert Markham, Tina Keller, Allison Reames and the rest of the award-wining directing team, shared in the joy of their victory, but it was not lost on them the seriousness of the moment as well.

Tina Keller expressed, “It’s been a rough year, and it’s been really rough for General Hospital recently with Johnny.” Keller, along with Robert Markham recalled what it was like working with Wactor.

“He came to set every day with a smile of gratitude and a love-filled hug for everybody,” shared Keller. “I’ve never worked with anyone who was so much light-filled and happy to be where he was. Just so much gratitude and joy and it’s a tremendous loss for his friends, his family, and anyone who loved him.” An emotional Robert Markham confirmed what Keller shared,  “Yeah, absolutely. He was a gentleman. He really was, and we’re going to miss him.”

GH paid tribute to Wactor in the final moments of the Tuesday, June 11th episode with a title card in remembrance of the slain actor. A march in Los Angeles is scheduled for this morning, Wednesday, June 12th, to City Hall for a call for change to clean up the streets of LA from crime, to help find Wactor’s killer.

The directing team took home the gold in the Directing for a Daytime Drama Series category, in part, due to the episode they submitted surrounding the memorial of Epiphany Johnson played by the late Sonya Eddy, who passed away back in December of 2022. The second episode they submitted was when Anna’s (Finola Hughes) house was set on fire.

Photo: ABC

Keller spoke to directing the memorial episode that was so heartfelt and raw as performed by the cast that knew and loved Sonya Eddy. “You know, it was a beautiful day to be able to pay tribute to Sonya and it was a rollercoaster all day,” shared Tina.

“We had our cast giving tributes to her and they all did such a beautiful job. It was well-written and a rough day emotionally, but it was an honor to be able to play a tribute to somebody who’s been such an important role in General Hospital throughout the history of the show,” Keller concluded.

You can check out the entire conversation with the Daytime Emmy-winning Directing team from General Hospital below. Make sure to visit the Michael Fairman Channel for full coverage of the red carpet and Winners Walk with interviews from daytime’s biggest night.
