GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Is Finn Shooting Up?



The new week is set to kick off with all new episodes of General Hospital,  and viewers are left pondering, yet again, just what is Dr. Hamilton Finn (Michael  Easton) shooting up?

On last Friday’s episode, Finn’s behavior was quite unusual when he screamed at Tracy (Jane Elliot) to wake up from her urgery that removed the larvae cyst and the infection form her brain.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Munro (Matt Cohen) with an assist from Finn.  When Tracy finally awakes, Finn is for the moment happy, and so too is Tracy who thanks Finn and touches his face.  However, as Finn heads to the elevators at GH, Griffin notices that Finn doesn’t seem to be looking well, and notes to Finn he should get some sleep.  He  has been up for the last 24 hours.   When Finn heads to the doctor’s locker room, he starts to seemingly go into withdrawal looking at himself in the mirror, looking at the bruises and track marks on his arm, and needing a fix of whatever he has been shooting up.   Finn has his paraphenilia in his locker, but as he finally gets to it he is interuppted by Griffin, who notes how off Finn seems to be, but blows it off to a long complicated surgery over Tracy’s case.   Later, a desperate Finn is sitting in the shower shooting up the drug.

Elsewhere in a touching moment, Tracy tells Monica (Leslie Charleson) she loves her and regrets not saying it before she went into surgery.  Nina (Michelle Stafford) gets upsetting news from Dr. Lee after she has sex with Franco (Roger Howarth) in hopes to become pregnant.  With Franco not wanting any biological children, and Nina’s baby obsession, the cracks are there for this relationship to tank!  Meanwhile, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Anna (Finola Hughes) set things in motion to nab Carlos  (Jeffrey Vincent Parise):  Anna chlorforms Paul (Richard Burgi), Sonny tells Michael (Chad Duell) to look after the family, while Carly (Laura Wright) worries Sonny could end up shot again if he finds Carlos. 

So, while Finn’s behavior is starting to emulate someone on heroin, doesn’t that seem too obvious?  Is he taking an experimental drug for research?  Is something medically wrong with him?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

        Rose, it’s from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” Su is quoting from the original soap writer… twins separated at birth, mistaken identities, unhappy marriages and murders galore from Mr. Shakespeare.

      That’s what I think as well. I believe that he contracted some kind of illness in the course of his work (he is, after all, an infectious disease specialist), and that some kind of secretion from Roxy is what keeps the illness at bay – hence, a “service lizard.”

      • CeeCee

        April 11, 2016 at 9:02 am

        Great minds think alike, Moviegal.LOL. That is exactly what I said from the very first scene we saw Finn shoot up. Roxie’s venom is keeping him in check.

      • Andrea

        April 11, 2016 at 9:15 am

        Definitely NOT heroine. He has a weird disease that uses something from that lizard

        Then why did he just have Felix help him get into the Closet O Drugapalooza?

    • CeeCee

      April 11, 2016 at 4:20 am

      Lol….we’re on the same ‘vein’, Shay. His malady has EVERYTHING to do with his strange ‘bedfella’. Unless I’m totally off the mark. Finn is a really sick, lonely guy. No time for relationships, no matter how much we want him to be paired with anyone.
      I also believe his work in this particular medical field became a necessity rather than an interest, as there is no cure. Now, it has become a need for survival? An addiction??
      Is Tracy following this path?

      • Moviegal

        April 11, 2016 at 9:50 am

        That’s a huge syringe he’s using – and I find it interesting that he never fills it, just uses what’s inside. That’s too big of a syringe (IMO) for a junkie. Diabetics usually administer into a muscle (like in the belly or in a thigh) – not directly into the vein. We did get a clue, though, when he was having trouble opening the locker – apparently some sort of partial paralysis affects the hand on that arm.

      • CeeCee

        April 11, 2016 at 10:23 am

        I did notice that, Moviegal. I actually have never seen such a big syringe, except in hospitals/doctors ( he is one, lol). And, I am not familiar with whatever paraphernalia junkies use, either. But, as yourself, I doubt such a huge syringe would be necessary.
        He did have difficulty opening the locker, as you observed; plus, I noticed the beads of sweat on his face, AND the frenetic, ‘irky’ behavior. Is that indicative of being in pain or going through withdrawal or both?
        I hope this will come to a head sooner than later. This suspension in mid air dissipates the interest if taken too far.

      • Shay

        April 11, 2016 at 8:32 pm

        I concur, CeeCeeGirl….This is not the tale of a filthy addict….we have a man with a genuine malady and it would seem his lady-lizard holds the only possibly curative elixir. Finn’s situation is totally gross, just as much as Tracy’s worms on the brain are….their mutual storyline is most definitely not a lunchtime delight!!! It absolutely turns my stomach, but if anyone can make it work, it’s Easton. Having said that, I can only hope he has no time for romance, since the only likely candidate at this point would seem to be the towel-bearing, maneating, one-woman “Welcome Wagon” committee otherwise known as Carly….and as a pair, I simply do not like them.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      April 11, 2016 at 5:46 am

      Hamilton Finn is really a lizard…he was turned into a human by those crazy Cassidines during a bizarre experiment to create a superior race…Hamilton who has super human abilities-extra strength and can catch flies with his tongue with lightening-like speed keeps his powers hidden as he is hiding from the Cassidines and also doesnt want anybody to know what he really is…he had escaped from the Cassidines 20 years ago but got a new face and new identity ect but to stay human he needs blood that is a mix of lizard blood and human blood-Tracys blood type is exactly what he needs and has been using her blood-this is why he was so desperate to become her doctor!!!…lol

        Thank you@Molly Gray! Who’d have thought that such an arcane phrase from “New Moon on Monday” could ever make sense…..especially when applied to a totally different situation three decades after the fact! Perhaps Finn—and Roxy!—–are closet Durannies! LOL….

      • Harry

        April 13, 2016 at 10:33 am

        Why can’t they write a decent story for Michael E? Again, they have him coupled with a female lizard.
        First there was Nina and now there is Roxy!

    • Shay

      April 13, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      Oh, thank you, Harry!!!! Once again, we see eye on to eye on that certain character I regard as “LaNinaPhyllina”….and by the way, I meant to tell you that I loved your reference to Sylvia Plath a few weeks back. Believe you me, there are quite a few females of GH that I should love to stash into a “bell jar!”

    April 10, 2016 at 11:30 pm

    Perhaps an experimental drug for some as of yet unknown illness he has. He was recently in Africa so perhaps he caught something there? Hmm.

      April 11, 2016 at 8:13 am

      I felt the same on having to be so visual about his shooting up, no matter what it was. It wasn’t really necessary and grossed me out. And it’s not just young people if you follow the news, also adults.

    • CeeCee

      April 11, 2016 at 9:11 am

      Yeah, john. I think once was enough. We got the point. But showing it multiple times is pushing it.

  4. Tammy

    April 11, 2016 at 12:57 am

    He’s definitely not an addict imo. I think he may have something & this is his treatment. I think the signs that mimic withdrawal is just whatever illness he has taking over & the meds are needed to feel better.
    I wanted him to be a cross between House (w/o the addiction) & Dr Hayward (AMC). Looks like I may have gotten it. But really much better. Great work by Michael Easton.

  5. Walter

    April 11, 2016 at 2:42 am

    It’s Caleb Morley, shooting up True Blood….

  6. Becca

    April 11, 2016 at 2:48 am

    First, Michael Easton is playing the hell out of these scenes. Amazing work! I definitely think he is using himself in research. One, because, like Mr Fairman said, heroin is too obvious. Two, what junkie makes notations in a book each time they shoot up?

    • CeeCee

      April 11, 2016 at 11:31 am

      Yup, Becca. jimh did say that he was using himself as the subject of an experiment.
      What puts these scenes under a negative light is some of the locations….like a sewer rat. On a bathroom floor; locker-room etc. Where next? Under the subway dark stairwell?
      it’s just gross. But, I would think he needs to inject whenever the need calls. This need also seems to be sporadic.
      As you just stated, Finn makes notations for each injection, which is a tell-tale sign that he is, indeed, timing each interval. Good catch, Becca.

      • Ces

        April 11, 2016 at 3:02 pm

        Well, damn, if Finn would stop interrupting him, he wouldn’t’ have to do it on the bathroom floor. Anyone else though maybe Finn would need that shower? hehehe And Carly …. knock!!! And seriously the whole premise of her delivering those cheap a** towels was ridiculous.

  7. Lisa

    April 11, 2016 at 3:30 am

    This storyline is very interesting. On the one hand, the size of the syringe and amount of drug he is injecting is way too large to be heroin. On the other hand, if it’s medication, why is it unlabeled and hidden in a leather pouch. Either was, Easton is intriguing and is portraying Finn beautifully. Love this story!

  8. Rose

    April 11, 2016 at 4:05 am

    I’m thinking Finn, being a bit of a rebel and independent person, was searching the “world’s pharmacy” for an eco-cure and by providence met up with Roxie. And now he’s using himself as a guinea pig. Wonder how Roxie got her name? Speaking of names…remember earlier when some were wondering where Finn’s name originated? It’s also the name of one of the new Star Wars stars…another Disney/ABC “placement” coincidence? Whatever, I like it. Why is he in Port a Charles? Because Monica called him because she remembered him from a med conference? Being a soap there has to be more.

  9. Anacarrie

    April 11, 2016 at 4:30 am

    Heroin does seem to be a bit obvious so I reserve judgment about whatever it is he’s shooting up. If it is heroin; I guess TPTB are trying to give Michael Easton some meaty material to work with. A quirky life saving doctor with a drug problem is quite different from his other roles. I’ll stay on board for now. I am a fan of Michael Easton’s so I certainly interested in how this character will be developed. I am also glad to see they are holding to their word so far by focusing on his character and not immediately connecting him with a love interest. I like getting to know the character before forming an attachment to a pairing.

  10. Melissa

    April 11, 2016 at 4:40 am

    I imagine it has something to do with the reason why Olbrecht was reluctant yo give him hospital privileges. She’s been hinting at knowing something about him. Hope they reveal it soon. Right now Finn is presenting as a bundle of anxieties and eccentricities. While it’s intriguing for now, if we don’t get an explanation soon it’s going to start to get annoying. I think GH has picked up the pace of storytelling in the last few weeks and I hope they continue to do so.

    The other thing I am wondering is if Griffin is too good to be true. He’s been presented to us as almost the perfect man in sharp contrast to Finn. Nathan had a little bit of that too until his recent Claudette revelation.

    Speaking of pacing, one thing I ask of the writers is that when (and if) Brad and Lucas finally marry, please tell us why Brad was forced to get married to R in the first place and how he extricated himself from the marriage. (It’s been so long since that storyline unfolded I can’t even remember R’s full name. Was it Rosalie?) I know the current writers inherited that story, but I really think they need to give it closure and tell us something — anything — about how it was resolved. Even if we have to go through some terrible exposition to find out!

    Hamilton Finn is Tracys son???

  13. Grace

    April 11, 2016 at 6:19 am

    Finn is going to have some odd rare disease and is using the Dragon/Lizzard blood or saliva or something to make some concoction that he needs. I for one am intrigued and looking forward to seeing where this story takes us.

  14. Ces

    April 11, 2016 at 6:31 am

    I bet he has what Tracy has and those drugs keep him alive. Maybe that’s why he told her family it isn’t over yet.

    • CeeCee

      April 11, 2016 at 1:20 pm

      There we go, Ces, thinking alike, again……Tracy and her ‘worms’ in the brain have had a link for me as soon as I saw Finn injecting himself, and feeling so strongly about what ailed her was a dead give-away.
      And, the emphasis/focus on Roxy says much.

      • Ces

        April 11, 2016 at 2:57 pm

        Heyyy CeeCee – lol!! I think lizard juice may be what keeps Finn alive. The antidote is in the juice and now Tracy will need it. I can’t imagine GH would bring ME back to play a druggie – where would that get them? Hopefully we will see much more of Finn & Tracy together! (not that like, haha!)

      • CeeCee

        April 11, 2016 at 3:43 pm

        Hi, Ces?…whatever that juice is goes straight into Finn.
        It looks like Tracy is on the mend. Does that mean Roxy’s ‘bad medicine’ got into her as well?….via Finn’s fat syringe.

      • CeeCee

        April 11, 2016 at 3:46 pm

        Yeah, Ces…why is Finn always interrupted at the most inopportune time? It’s as though TPTB want him to be found out by somebody.

  15. Sharon Howard Cloud

    April 11, 2016 at 7:06 am

    He’s shooting up a “life syrum” . I think he’s a character from the past that has returned to Port Charles. Dr Finn and the past character, with age,could pass for twins. That’s all I’m saying right now.

    • CeeCee

      April 11, 2016 at 9:12 am

      Hmmmm. Good premise. I like it, Sharon.

  16. JoanneG

    April 11, 2016 at 8:51 am

    I’m agreeing with Ces above. I think at some point he may end up having to inject Tracy with the same serum as he is using on himself.

    Think Roxy is keeping him in serum for whatever it is that is ailing the good Dr. Finn!

    • Ces

      April 11, 2016 at 2:58 pm

      yes JoanneG – I think so 🙂 Love Roxie!! And she eats organic … must need it for the serum. lol!! can’t shoot bad thing in your veins after all, right?

      • CeeCee

        April 11, 2016 at 6:28 pm

        Lol, Ces. You call it juice; I called it venom extracted from Roxy. I suspected it from the get-go. However, I like your word, ‘juice’ much better than venom. I am assuming Finn has to refine the liquid and sterilize it before injecting it. LOL.
        If you recall, Finn knew just from one examination that Tracy’s ‘problem’ showed symptoms in which he was well versed. Thus, the similarities.
        I wonder what Griffin has to do with this? He was so emphatic about Tracy not having cancer…..he was almost positive she had been mis-diagnosed. How did he know? He explained something about Mexico, and having seen these symptoms before….brain-matter-eating maggots, contracted by eating fetid food. Does that mean that there is a mysterious link between Finn and Griffin?

      • Ces

        April 12, 2016 at 3:56 pm

        haha, lizard juice! 😉
        Hmm… I think there is a lot more to Griffin then just being Duke’s son so time will tell if he knows more. I hope GH trims some of the dead weight cast so they can develop Finn & Griffin more; two characters I like and two actors I like. I’m all for seeing more Q time too and anytime Jane Elliot has a story, I’m happy.

    April 11, 2016 at 9:01 am

    Maybe Michael Easton got food poisoning when he and Frank Valenti were at the supermarket together?

    Tracy has ALWAYS loved Monica deep down!

    Michele FINALLY found herself and her character Nina should dump that loser Freako!


    • CeeCee

      April 12, 2016 at 7:29 pm

      Lol, Timmmy. I also suspect that as gruff as Tracy is, she loves Monica. How can anyone co-inhabit together, share the same space without developing loving feelings.
      Were the Quartermaines the first family in PC?
      Please, Timmm….no, no no…. NO SANNA!! We don’t want Anna defiled by being another notch on Sonny’s sullied belt, do we? Besides, think of Carly.

      • Timmm

        April 13, 2016 at 7:09 am

        Tracy and Monica were mega enemies when Monica’s husband Alan was alive. It was nasty but Alan is gone, they are each getting older and maybe realize that they dont have many left in their lives so, what the hell!

        We have mega GH aficionados on this site that may correct me but without googling, the Q’s were and are PC “First Family!” Now I know that when the show started the Hardys kicked off the show and the Baldwins were featured and there was a lady name Amanda Barrington who was very rich BUT to me, the Q’s were THE first rich, loving and back stabbing family on GH.

        Cee, Anna was a double agent back in her day. She is not so innocent. Remember more recently her and Robert threw Faison in a hole and left him for dead. Now, Sonny boy is just a thug with dimples BUT the two of them together, well it never happened so I guess I’m enjoying the freshness of it all but I dont see them as a couple. Carly might be to Sonny what Drinki is to Victor on Y&R!

      • CeeCee

        April 13, 2016 at 8:40 am

        Well, my Timmmy….when you put it that way….love it. Thank you.
        So, in other words, Sonny and Carly; ‘Drinki-Nikki and Victor are each other’s addiction? You’re right!!

      • Shay

        April 13, 2016 at 7:44 pm

        Hey, CeeCeeGIrl!!!….We are so on the same page when it comes to a possible pairing of Anna and Sonny….DO NOT GO THERE! Our Divine Devane has already suffered too many romantic indignities these past few years….first there was the Robin grief affair with that rickety roué, Luke, that was beyond questionable, then the Duke grief sex with the slimy Sloan (recast) which also made my skin crawl. Other than Robert, the only man to whom I could now even envision our Anna baring her soul—and all else—is the dreamy Griffin. I know that the verdict is still out on his real story, but there already is a chemistry and bond drawing these two together, and I shan’t expect that such a promising possible romance would be ignored for a cheap and tawdry hookup with the Latin Lover (Legend in his own mind….) Sonny. Just say no to that notion! As for the “towel-bearing” Carly, and her recent brushes with the mysterious, “have lizard, will travel,” Finn? I’m just as adamant that they not be joined in any sort of physical relationship….the Corinthi richly deserve each other, and now that they’ve made their “marital bed” for the umpteenth time, they should have to lie in it….together!!!!!

      • CeeCee

        April 13, 2016 at 9:51 pm

        Hi, Shay.
        The thought of Anna and Sonny falling for each other would cause my stomach to lurch, but, not as much as duplicating the scene in that Equadorian Church, to a scene from a Sicilian, Neopolitan or Calabrian mafia movie. To me, it was more of a satirical flop than anything else.
        It was laughable and sad at the same time, given the fact that Italian priests have been massacred so often by ‘La Cosa Nostra’. Meanwhile these souless men attend Mass every Sunday, baptize their children in the Church and ‘follow’ its dictates.
        Did you catch the irony, Shay? The ‘Padre’ was used as a patsy in that rustic, hovel of a Church….what gives?
        Italy is a world away from the bowels of South America. And, the symbolism did not wash with me. The town of Corleone is in Sicily, not in Equador. Sonny is not Italian. But, he is doggedly represented as one. It would have made a lot more sense if that Church scene had taken place in Sicily, Naples, or Calabria.

      • Shay

        April 14, 2016 at 9:00 pm

        As for suggesting that Sonny and Carlos should have taken their deadly games to beautiful “Italia” instead? I’m just as glad they didn’t go there….as of late, that blessed nation has been besieged by more than enough underserved trouble, not only due to the famous homegrown criminal element, but by courtesy of foreign invaders, so even if it’s only two less via GH storytelling, then I will consider it to be a small favor to the inspirational land that has contributed so much to mankind in terms of culture, cuisine, fashion, etc.

      • Shay

        April 18, 2016 at 8:34 pm

        Well, CeeCeeGirl, Sonny and Carly certainly do deserve each other…they’ve both done despicable, unspeakable deeds and broken their (oft-repeated) marital vows to one another over and over again, and yet, at the end of the day, all roads lead them back to Casa de Corinthos. As for the “Dimpled Don” himself and the constantly mixed messages on his heritage, I think there should a disclaimer crawl that reads “Sonny is not Italian….” every single time he appears in a GH scene to finally clear up that misconception.

        @CeeCee….I meant, “should be a disclaimer crawl across the bottom of the screen that reads “Sonny is not Italian…..”

      @Timmm…..Count me in with CeeCee on nixing a proposed Sonny-Anna tryst! To rephrase your clever portmanteau, let’s just say that it would be utter IN-SANNA-TY!

        Hi, ShayShay,
        True, Shay. Because of its vulnerable location; that is, encircled by the Thyrrenean, the Ionian and the Mediterranean, Italy is forced to ‘house’ unwanted visitors….and, invaders. And, lets not forget what is governing to its north….
        However, the scenery could have been faked as everything else. Or, continue with the South American theme. Why borrow scenes from what truly happens in many churches dpread throughout the ‘paesetti’ of southern Italy?
        I could understand a drug cartel involvement/imbroglio, but Sonny, as he is, does not have the physical, cultural nuances typical of a true member of COSA NOSTRA, which means OUR THING, literally. ITALIAN IS OUR THING. No one else, Shay. Perhaps ‘they’ should have recruited Michael Imperioli as Sonny’s buddy to take care of anything with a semblace of Italian ‘malavita’ for him. That would have worked for me.
        So, this is just my feeling….what makes Sonny tick, should be switched-up a bit ….have him take it home another way….Bernard is such a good actor…let him be himself and not a shadow of an Italian bandito. Bad representation because Sonny just does not have the right characteristics. It is not realistic, ….not to me . Later, cara.

        Lol, Shay. Let’s leave all Sonny’s portmanteaux (probably filled with weapons), for his clothes…ready to exit. I doubt the morpheme words would go right over Sonny’s head.
        I am starting to get used to Sonny and Carly. In their own twisted way, they do love each other….even at an impossible cost. And, I adore Laura Wright. I would not like another split just to repeat the same caca. They’d only end up marrying again, anyway. So let’s leave this couple be. YEAH!!

      • CeeCee

        April 15, 2016 at 4:25 pm

        Sorry, Shay. I meant to the north-east, as in Eastern Europe.

      April 18, 2016 at 8:27 pm

      Me thinks not, Timmmbo! Sonny has already had his hand in the knickers of far too many Port Charles females, and Anna—along with Laura—-need to remain off-limits to this Latin Lover with the uncanny knack to impregnate on the first tryst. Maybe instead he and “Rachel Berlin” can give it a spin, eh?????

        April 19, 2016 at 7:03 am

        In a perfect soap world Sonny would reunite with Lilly and Anna would cuddle back up with our favorite kangaroo, Robert! But either seem to be in the horizon. I would LOVE to know how much Tristan gets paid over at CBS to not appear on GH? Or Y&R? He is never on! Hayden is not Sonny’s type. I like HICK! I get screen burns on my TV when those two make love! By the way Shay, I would cast Don Johnson as Raymond Berlin.

    • Shay

      April 19, 2016 at 11:18 pm

      Au contraire, Timmbo! I’m one of those who consider the “click boom” moment to be the gift that keeps on giving to Port Charles! No Lilly again….ever! As for Anna being reunited with our favorite Aussie? Oh yes, GH can never have enough Robert Scorpio! In terms of Rachel and Sonny? He has the money, so she’d gladly give the honey…..that’s just how she operates! Don Johnson as Raymond Berlin? Would work for me, but I doubt he’d do daytime….but there are so many debonair males of a certain age who could play the role….jimh mentioned Charles Grant, and I also like Grant Show, and too many others to name now. It really depends upon the age of the guy….is he supposed to be a silver fox of retirement years or younger? I get the impression he is a contemporary of Tracy’s, which means the former.

    At least this character is interesting. He’s definitely NOT shooting heroine. I’m looking for him & Carly to get together

    ahhh what is in the serigine feeds a huge worm living inside him..

    • CeeCee

      April 12, 2016 at 7:20 pm

      Lol, su. So, Finn doesn’t want to destroy the worm; he wants to harvest it? Maybe his plan is to inject every patient in hospital with a worm? He will then cure everyone and come out the hero.

    I don’t know! I think he could actually be using heroin, but only because it’s so timely now. You can’t watch the news anymore without hearing about someone using heroin. I think that Michael Easton might’ve been attracted to the character of Finn because it’s totally different than anything we’ve seen him do — including the shooting up aspect.

    On the other hand, and the much safer bet, it probably is some kind of drug that he needs in order to keep him alive. He’s trying to cure something he has. I don’t think the lizard is involved in the cure, though. I just think the lizard is there to make Finn more quirky.

    I’m looking forward to learning more about Finn’s family life. Hopefully, he has one! I also want to see who he’ll be romantically linked to. I hope it’s someone good, and someone that I’ll like, and certainly not the same old-same old!

      Is Finn shooting up medicine or drugs? Playing a junkie would be a real meaty role for Michael, a story he would certainly deliver. I’m liking the role out of Finn, he seems like a real interesting character.

      I can’t wait to see who his romantic interest will be. I hope it’s someone new. I have no interest in seeing any of his ex’s on GH, except for one of his former leading ladies who is currently occupied with Hamilton. About that name Hamilton, I wonder ME had anything to do with picking his character’s first name

      • CeeCee

        April 13, 2016 at 7:56 am

        Your comment, Olivia, caught my eye. Soooo very meaningful. I remember writing an essay on Alexander Hamilton in High School where it was, much, much later, assumed that he had bipolar disorder.
        The disease was so misunderstood; the times did not steer towards such a diagnosis.
        Moreover, Hamilton contracted YELLOW FEVER and survived. So, kudos to you. Finn is Hamilton’s re-encarnation. He will survive and develop a cure for Tracy and the world.
        The Finn storyline has to be more sophisticated and dramatic, of course; but, there’s the link.
        Now, the name ‘Finn’ holds pride and altruism on itself……as in Irish lore, the name Finn is assimilated to Finn Mac Cumhail, a facsimile of Robin Hood……I just love this stuff!!

      Michael’s Facebook post he made today says it all. Renee Goldsberry has been nominated foe a Tony, congrats to her. Oh how I wish she could make a guest appearance on GH , as a lover from Finn’s past lover.

    There was a line about Finn doing research with Carbonic Snow so if Ron — or anyone else was writing — I would assume that was some foreshadowing to later tie the character to the Cassadines. Since it’s Jean and Shelly I can’t muster much interest since their last “big” reveal — after weeks of build-up — was that Hayden was Rachel Berlin (daughter of Raymond Berlin, master of the off-camera Ponzi scheme). Also, I’m not sure why the show thinks I should invest much concern for a character who has only been on screen for a couple of weeks…

    Finn has a rare disease and whatever he is shooting up comes from the lizard. Maybe the same thing as Tracy but worse.

    Been off the soap since last June – couldn’t take the writing anymore…. but I check this site on occasion to see if there’s anything worth returning for… so far, there hasn’t been but this sounds kind of interesting and I may look online for old eps and catch up.. Like Michael Easton and this sounds like a very interesting storyline – big thanks to whomever on the writing team named the lizard Roxie. 🙂 I love stuff like that.

    Maybe he’s a vampire who needs the drug so he can go out in day light and resist the urge to attack someone. He did react badly to Griffins comment about God. Just throwing that idea out there lol

    He obviously has a condition and Roxy or her venom or secretions are helping sustain him. I know Michael does dark well but it’s is hard to watch him like this.

    GH needs help. It is the worst of all possible things — boring. 🙁 The only interesting storyline right now is Hayden/Rachel.

    My thoughts lead to the idea again of a past character that’s also a unique “cross breed”.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
