GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Is Happening To Tracy? Who Is Hayden's Father?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, something is clearly going on with Tracy Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot) mind, or memory.

In another secret meeting with Hayden (Rebecca Budig), Tracy looks lost, confused, and disoriented, but then she is able to sort of snap herself back into the moment.  Hayden voices her concern for Tracy’s inablity to focus on their conversation. The meet-up is an update on how Hayden is working to double-cross her new husband, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) to help get ELQ back in the hands of the Quartermaines.

However, Tracy is holding another secret, which she sort of threatens Hayden with by bringing up the woman’s father. Hayden snaps back to never mention her father again which rankles her ire.  Tracy even calls Hayden, “Rachel”.  Later, Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins) sees Hayden and Tracy together, and is curious as to what is going on. Tracy covers, but then Hayden tells Dillon to get his mother to a doctor.  When Hayden exits Tracy assures Dillon there is nothing wrong with her, but clearly something is.

Meanwhile back at Wyndemere, an untrusting Nikolas is scouring the internet for information on his wife. He is able to look up and identify the man they saw in Las Vegas who called out to Hayden as “Rachel”.   Later, when Hayden returns to Wydemere and in a subsequent conversation, Hayden tells Nikolas both her parents are dead when he tries to pry into her background.

So, what do you think is happening to Tracy Quartermaine? Who do you think is Hayden’s biological father? Share your theories in the comment section below!

Brain tumor or aneurism. The new neurosurgeon needs a storyline.

Great theory.

some sort of brain problem. maybe a tumor or a stroke

Tracy was having a secure because of a brain tumor. Also Hayden is related to somebody from Port Charles or maybe sombody from Nikolas’ family killed her parents.

Seizure!

Yes I really do think Tracey had a seizure as I just retired from working with the best Neurosurgery ICU and it was real. If I’m wrong she should get the Oscar.

Is she losing weight? Is she ill? Her cheeks are sunken in and I am concerned.

Patrick
Patrick

I thought the same thing… about her sunken cheeks.

I thought she was having a mild heart attack

then… I was like… Traci , has always been … her own pillar of strength… how could this be happening

what a delay tactic for Hayden

back to Ms. Traci : she became so still… snapped too… ??? memory lapse ?

Hayden can tell any one… she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.. which will further frustrate Traci

any way… this our Ms. Q

good story coming

I really like Tracy; Hope she gets better. I don’t like how Nicolas has changed. He used to be a piller of strength for everyone. Now he can’t be trusted.

Its Holleywood! Any make-up artist can make someone perfectly healthy! Just my thought… I would hope Tracy is a great actress! As for her illness… I think a tumor. As for Hayden… I think its E.iley”s twin sister!

Amy
Amy

I’m assuming (and hoping) the sunken appearance was made possible by the make up department and that the fabulous Miss Jane Elliott is healthy as can be.

Patrick
Patrick

thanks Amy! I’m hoping that’s what it is

Richelle Y Ebert
Richelle Y Ebert

I agree! Good acting. I think as far as Hayden, I think she is Emily’s twin sister! I know this is my second reply because I messed up the first reply. Im worming on a cracked screen.

Before her little ‘episode’ (which I believe is a mini stroke) I had noticed that Tracey’s makeup was completely different. Her cheeks definitely more sunk in, but eye makeup was lighter as well. I thought she looked fabulous, and the makeup department was finally updated her look to go with her new hairdo. It would be wonderful to see Jane Elliott in a new storyline. She’ll act the crap out of it!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Her appearance, as someone already said is definitely the job of a good make-up artist. But, who really knows?

Timmm
Timmm

I hope its not Alzheimer? It will have to be something that she can recover from. Maybe a stroke where Jane can blow our minds with another amazing performance?

Like Jim said, Paul could be Hayden’s father but havent they already seen each other? Paul mentions Susan. This couldnt be Susan? Do you think Tracy had a daughter with Paul that he or we never knew about? I dont know but its intriguing. I always thought Hayden was a Q! Regardless, her and Tracy’s scene in the restaurant on Thursday was great! Tracy played it perfectly and Hayden’s timing asking Tracy what was wrong and giving her time to regroup was done perfectly! I really think they are mother and daughter, somehow!

Amy
Amy

I can see mother/daughter also. If Tracy gets sick I hope it doesn’t last too long. If she gets sick though I would like to see Laura involved in Tracy’s recovery somehow and I think it could be good material for both ladies. I would like to see these two characters as friends one day..or at least “reluctant” friends. Laura is such a nurturer and I could see her feeling bad for Tracy and trying to help her through a recovery. Laura is always able to give most people the benefit of the doubt and see the best in most people. I would also like to see the writers bring back the close friendship once shared between Laura and Monica. The Monica/Laura friendship was heavily portrayed in the 70’s and 80’s but then it dropped in the 90’s. Those two have a grandchild connection now and it seems weird to me the writers don’t have them communicating with each other much. There’s been a few scenes in 2015 where Monica and Laura were in the same room together to see the grandkids and the story really didn’t even have them saying hello to each other. Laura used to be more acquainted with the Quartermaines and it’s weird to me that they haven’t written her that way in decades.

Patrick
Patrick

Laura… it’s all good and well.. that she’s the nurturer… moral compass… but she looks like she’s ready to fart!

LOL… I was just sick… of this… when Nicholas and Hayden came to Windermear… and she could barely muster a congratulations.. and spouted cliché and resonated boredom

ugh! that hug from Hayden! drink more champagne

is this the Laura we get ?

let’s see her wild and abandon… total combustion of lust FEEL and surcharge… all the butterflies and chorus of good will… die

honest to godliness… seriously!

thank you Genie Francis… GH sucks!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe she changed her appearance and its been a long time since they had seen each other…when Dillion showed up i thought that was another clue…they would be siblings.

Timmm

Jim, I’m burnt out on rubber masks and facial bandages!

That’s what I thought, too, Timmm. But, as you do astutely point out, Alzheimer’s does not get better; but worse. So, it could be all the mishaps everyone is expressing, here. A series of strokes (TIAs); or experiencing mild symptoms of Angina approaching a heart attack, down the road.
I am assuming there must be a reason for this coming down. With Tracy having medical issues, her plans with Hayden ‘socking’ it to Nikolas will fall apart or put on hold. Then what?
Also, I had stated that Hayden could possibly be Paul’s daughter, Susan……but, I think a poster already suggested that Tracy knew Hayden’s father? If so, there goes that theory. Is Michael Easton part of this mystery, somehow? I like the mystery very much…..later.
Thank you for your salutations of a few days ago, Timmmy..luv-ya. HV to you, too.

Timmm
Timmm

Years ago Edward had a heart attack and Tracy famously withheld his meds. [Heres the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2SO8JAPqWo ] So there is heart issues in the family. Your right, she will be loaded with her ammo and right before she spills the beans she will go into cardiac arrest and be in a coma and someone will make sure she never wakes up and so it goes. Someone said Larry Ashton might have poisoned her and is up to something. Maybe? Larry is a sneak but I dont think he would try to kill Tracy. As for Hayden, I dont think she is Tracy’s daughter. [I wish] Tracy is gloating about her identity and Hayden’s father so I’m guessing maybe she is an offspring of Monica’s or Emily’s sister? I dont know but if she were Monica’s daughter maybe we would then see her once in a while? NOPE! remember we thought that what happen with Jason but it didnt and its a sin! Thats for another day. Later love!

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Timmm.
Thank you, my Timmm. I enjoyed that….Tracy was so pretty….and sooo wispy!!
Wow!! What a stab-you-in-the-back family!! I had no idea Tracy was so ‘molish’. It is a wonder Monica allowed her to remain in residence!
I still like Tracy. She has that certain Je ne sais quoi quality that attracts. Also, she has calmed down a bit, ehh? But, it seems that this family has always been steeped in intrigue, mystery and peccadilloes…..later, babes.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Anything is possible, Timmm. Maybe Tracy gave a baby up for adoption, in the name of Susan/Rachel/Hayden?…Or, Susan’s bio mother (Jenny?) remarried and Susan assumed her step-dad’s name? Could ‘Susan’ have later changed her name to Rachel?
Suddenly, I find this story interesting….wanting more…later.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

Paul Hornsby entered GH as a single father. Susan was off-screen when he got engaged to Tracy & revealed later. Susan’s mother has never been disclosed. But, the kid was elementary age when she was introduced to both Jenny Eckert & Tracy for the first time. So, neither is her mother.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@KansaGuest.
Hi, Kansas.
Thank you for that info. Lol. It goes to show you I know next to nothing of GH history. I suppose I should read before putting my two cents worth.
This mystery is truly piquing my interest….since a long while. Later.

Nikolas, it’s called an annulment. Mystery solved.

Joy

Hayden has no connection to Hornsby. There is no connection between them Tracy clearly has some neurological issues which would fit the new Doc’s storyline. Who ever Hayden really is is gonna be a shocker like Kristina Davis Corinthos’s lesbian relationship with Parker.

CeeCee
CeeCee

What a great point, Jake! Yes…I agree. Women’s heart health, whose symptoms are so different from those of the opposite sex, has made many strides. I am so glad for that…it has even infiltrated Fashion Week. What better way to attract the notice of women to pay close attention to their bodies.

I hope Jane Elliott isn’t leaving GH.

Robin

I think Tracey will be getting sick soon, and forget everything. I think Paul Hornsby is Haden’s Father? Just a guess.

Patrick
Patrick

Anna was w/Paul…. and said; “You never talk about your daughter?”

catching Paul in a vulnerable state… shares her name, Susan.

so… could Hayden, whos Rachel, really be Susan?

Paul may have made that name up… Susan, to throw Anna off track ?

Erick
Erick

It was mentioned back in the early ’90s that Paul’s daughter’s name was Susan. She was a preteen then. The age would fit without even SORASing her, name notwithstanding.

bonnie

Oh am thinking Tracy had a mini stroke otvTIA. Hayden is Sysant, Pauls daughter

Mary SF
Mary SF

Considering Tracy told Hayden she admired her father it is unlikely she was talking about Paul because Tracy thinks Paul’s a jacka** —- but with soaps you never know,

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I said previously it could be Paul…maybe Tracy is having stroke and not knowing what she is saying?

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

however, there are only two people i think Tracy ever admired-Alan and Edward…she could be a Q ? but i dont know why Hayden would hate either one unless it involved her mother.

Candy Lou
Candy Lou

Tracy had said that Hayden’s father was just an acquaintance so could she be the daughter of one of the Solese family or the daughter of Sonny’s enemy Joe Scully??? not sure what could be wrong with Tracy but I hope the actress is not leaving.

Amy
Amy

Joe Scully….now that’s a name from way back. Good theory. I had the same reaction as you: “Jane Elliott please don’t leave GH.” She’s been there for so long and she’s such an important character to the show. I know it’s silly but as I watched the character of Tracy losing focus yesterday, I became almost worried like I would for a relative. I know this is all make believe but I don’t know if I can stomach seeing Tracy get seriously ill. If she is about to get ill, I hope it doesn’t drag out the Nikolas/Hayden/ELQ drama for another 12 months. And I hope they don’t follow the traditional formula of Tracy losing her memory due to a stroke or alzheimers to allow the story to drag on. I would like to see this story on a fast track and I’m glad they are discussing a mysterious father right now. If Jane is about to get a major storyline, I’m happy for her because she deserves a fantastic storyline. I just hope her character isn’t sick for too long because, as a viewer, I like Tracy feisty and busting everyone’s chops.

Patrick
Patrick

in any event… I’m looking forward to the dynamic of Tracy and Monica

i’d rather watch Monica nurse her sister in law… as opposed to Laura.. continually expressing heart felt nauseate

I say this… duress

GH ! writers… Genie Francis is embolden rich with character

Emily
Emily

I thought maybe Tracy was having a stroke. Hmmm. I think Paul could be Hayden’s father since they brought up his daughter the other day and are now mentioning Hayden’s father.

aria

i’m love jane no matter what she’s doing she’s always electrifying and i’m also loving Rebecca Budig as Hayden, as to who is her father, i’m really stump here. Paul would be to obvious and their really isn’t any other guy in port charles who could of fathtered the character unless again julian the weasel was driving around boarding school impregnating teenage girls like he did with alexis hope not though we can’t have everyone in town be related to Sam. I’ve already put out there that anna and robert should have another offspring that they had when they went on the run because of cesar in the the 90’s but that offspring would be in their 20’s, so beyond that, i hope we find out soon because i’m really curious now. oh also the scene between the new doc grffin and liz was pure magic they are a really great match, it had me saying good bye jason, see you with sam when i drop of jake for you to babysit, these two where smoking hot, hope Rebecca sticks with GH this would be a real great lost.

Patrick
Patrick

“Aria”

“GREAT post” delish delight and done UP right

1. love your post that Hayden is NOT related to Sam… I’m sick of how she has the gall to treat (her cousin) Nicholas… like he’s the outsider… give me a break

2. I’m stumped, with; what is Hayden connect? if it’s Paul… OK.. but.. as another poster, alluded.. I’m intrigued by what … if she’s an ex to Michael Easton new character… No?

3. bye bye Jason… You … are not… good … enough… for Liz… stalemate and be boring… everlasting.. with Sam

4. YES YES and MORE… Liz and Griffin.. sizzle

I will damnation GH / DISNEY / and ABC… if they do not contract Rebecca Herbst

it’s all good

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Patrick…you think SAM has the gall to treat Nicolas like he’s an outsider…how about that he kept the love of her life Jason away from her and Danny…lied to her repeatedly…kept Jason’s identity… her HUSBAND’s identity…her son’s father, a secret. And you don’t like the way Sam treats Nicolas? Talk about being stumped! 🙂

Patrick
Patrick

Thanks ‘Beccs…. LOL you got me their… I was only thinking in terms… that it was all Liz lies . ie: with Sam

Nicholas played just as big a part

Patrick
Patrick

LOL… i’m so taken with Liz… that I was focusing solely on how dissed she’s been. be it fans or denizens of Port Charles

the alliance she had, or has, with Nicholas is not really focused on

I liked that Nicholas told Liz the other day… that she was his best friend and how he invited her and her sons to stay at Windemeare

rebecca1
rebecca1

Lol…Patrick…happy to remind u about Prince Nic’s unprincely behavior toward his cousin Sam! I notice you have a “crush” on Liz so I’ll let u slide for being blinded! 😉 I’ve always loved Liz AND Sam…but was completely on Sam’s side in the Jason files. I think Liz herself summed it up best recently when she explained to little Jake about her lie…and finally realized how she would feel if the tables were turned and Sam had kept Jason (had he been her husband) away from her and lil Jake.

I’ve loved Liz again lately. Taking responsibility, showing vulnerability, emotionally bereft…she’s at once poignant and stmpathetic. Not because Ive changed my mind..she was totally wrong. But I now feel her pain at all she’s lost, albeit at her own doing. My heart broke for her at the end of Friday’s episode. Excellent acting…anguish, despair…I hope we dont lose Rebecca Herbst…there’s a great redemption story here with a possible great romance with Dr. Gorgeous!

Hi, Patrick,
You and I have exchanged a few thoughts concerning Sam. For the longest time all I could see about this character was her one-faceted acting; her whispered, monotone conversations grating on the nerves.
Now, I find myself in a quandary because I am discovering a brand new Sam. I am actually starting to not only like her, but appreciate her as an actress. In her own quiet, subdued manner, she got under my skin. Go figure. Perhaps it is the fact that through my charities ( mainly dedicated to children) I have meet many people; and, lo and behold, Kelly Monaco is a steadfast advocate of children’s rights and supporter/activist of ‘ Feed the Children’.
Also, her extensive hearing loss does impair and affect her vocal tone. So, I feel like a foolish heel; to say the least.
I was impressed by this….she doesn’t just sit around looking pretty in her thigh-high boots. LOL.
I also like Miss Lizzie, always have, except when she was bitten by the devil and kept Jason to herself. Now, she is regretting her actions, and finally is acting as a mother should.
I must admit I feel a lot lighter of heart with my newfound feelings for Sam. Later.

Aria
Aria

Paul can’t be the father because I’m assuming the mother would be Jenny eckert and their offsprings would be younger then Dillon so if it’s Paul , whose the mom ? Let’s say they decided to go with Jenny being the mom and rewriting the timeline for the character then that would make Hayden related to all the Spencer’s & quatermaines ! Agian her being Jenny’s daughter wouldn’t add up.

Aria
Aria

Sorry she would only be related to Dillon not all the quatermaines but definitely the Spencer’s

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

Susan Hornsby was a sick 7 or 8-year-old little girl when she on GH back in the 90’s. She was introduced on-screen to both Jenny Eckert & Tracy Q at the time. So, neither is her mother. When Paul’s business dealings & schemes caused a lot of turmoil in his life, he sent Susan to live with his mother/her grandmother. Susan’s real mother was never revealed or seen onscreen.

Donna
Donna

Paul came to Port Charles in 1991. He already had a daughter abt 8 or 9 yrs old,her name was Susan. The Cartel poison Susan and held on to the antidote,so Paul would do their bidding. Jenny is not the mother of Susan..Susan’s mother is unknown..Tracy was Susan’s stepmother,when Paul was married to her..but Paul was cheating on Tracy with Jenny. Paul and Jenny only had 1 child,that’s Paul Jr.

Linda Anne
Linda Anne

Paul has mentioned Susan once before, so I don’t think he used a fake name.
I have no clue who Hayden may be but I do wish they would get Tracy a great guy who really cares about her. She’s really a caring person, who has been hurt so many times and buries her pain, taking it out on others. I think she deserves a good man!

Patrick
Patrick

“Tracy” … buries her pain, taking it out on others. I think she deserves a good man

it’s a cause celeb what Jane Elliott brings… LOL uproarious laud celebrate and cheer her Tracy

it’s always going to be heartbreak … that this … last of the Q empire offspring.. loads

loads implosion really is a heart on her sleeve steady gait fires her own will

what a conundrum she reels

I like Tracy too and she”s been carrying the Quartermaine story, whatevet’s left of it, for some time now. But I used to love to hate her character; she’s only become sympathetic in the last few years. There wad a time where she was just horrible to Emily, Jason and AJ. Hated how she demeaned AJ in particular…

I too am hoping whatever it is is temporary. We need her Q presence.

Wondering…maybe Larry Ashton…have something to do with Hayden…or even Tracy’s blackout? Helena?

Linda Anne

Years ago, I used to hate her too! I do like her now..and you are so right,
“we NEED her Q presence.”
Now that I think of it, you are probably correct about Larry Ashton.

@Rebecca, @ Linda

Yeah… as a newbie to GH… since 2011… I really have taken to Tracy.

LOL… it’s like… no matter how people are irritants to THEE Ms. Q

she has a soft spot left over for Our Tracy

whew!

I liked your read on her past transgressions … Oy! she’s a stern holds her heart at bay .. but… like Paul said… was it Anna… he can’t fault Traci on the one thing he missed out on… She , however, handily… put her children first.

I love the fabulous Jane Elliott Acting !

Hi Linda Anne…nice to meet you! Yes…let’s hope Tracy is about to begin an interesting story…and not end hers! Lol. Yea, it seemed odd to just throw Larry in for giggles. Maybe he learned some brainwashing techniques from Helena!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hi Patrick…

Tracy’s had some issues with Ned and Dylan but ultimately she loves them like a mama bear should. It’s other people’s children she’s never been too kind to! She really changed when she bonded with Lulu. I think that was the first time in a long time we’ve seen her maternal. In spite of her jealousy and resentment toward Laura, she took a much -in-need-of-a-mom Lulu and was there for her while Laura couldn’t be. Still wish she had been nicer to AJ…

Rodd

Do you think Larry has something to do with Tracy’s illness since they met up while she was on vacation and now, when she should be rested, she’s exhibiting these signs???

rebecca1
rebecca1

Hi Rodd…I hadn’t read your post yet…was responding to the one above you…and suggested the same thing. Maybe he’s behind it.. either alone or possibly with Helena IF she’s not really dead. Hope it’s not a tumor as some have suggested.

poo bear

Plutonium poisoning? That’s it! just like Luke had. Helena is alive i bet she won’t die.

Since GH is covering a couple of current news items (public breastfeeding, lesbian relationship) and Tracey did say she was on vacation in Mexico, my thought is that she contracted zika virus. ??

Dan
Dan

Maybe Lord Larry slipped Tracy something when they ran into each other a few weeks ago. I can’t imagine him showing up out of nowhere like that was an accident, and he’s always involved in some kind of scheme. Wouldn’t shock me to find out that he’s connected to Hayden in some way.

Could also be what others have mentioned, some sort of medical story, whether a stroke, a tumor, the onset of dementia or Alzheimer’s. Jane is 69 years old and I picture Tracy to be about the same age, so it would definitely be a realistic story to tell, and I’m sure she would do a wonderful job, as she always does. Definitely something to keep an eye on.

Shay
Shay

I was thinking the same thing, Dan…..could this strange, zoned-out behavior only be presenting itself now as a delayed side-effect to Lord Larry’s “wacky tobaccy???” It could have been laced with God only knows what, and even in its pure state, that stuff is known to kill the brain cells! To have the debauched aristo simply pop up in Tracy’s “South of the Border” sojourn made no sense otherwise….there must have been some method to his “reefer madness!” At any rate, I certainly hope this doesn’t portend the end of Jane Elliot’s iconic character when there are so many others that I endlessly wish would kick the bucket…..Tracy is not one of them!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, Shaybelle.
I sent you a reply about the upcoming nuptials, but, I don’t know what happened to it? Same old same old.
Anyway, I think you are so right…..Larry’s appearance was utterly out of place…..ergo, that scene where Larry nonchalantly sidled up to Tracy, smelled of rotten fish at the time. Now, the stench is getting worse.
I would not be too happy if Tracy became ill. I do agree with you; I, too, hope this is not a foreboding aimed at Tracy. I await this development with trepidation.
Love you much, carina.

Patrick
Patrick

oy! could this be something of the synthetic .. he may have added ?

I was so smitten just to see Lord Ashton

oy! charmer, dastardly

that selfish… even when he told Ms. Traci he’s been in err of his ways… and Traci is that gullible…

I’m inclined to believe that Traci could be

she some him not long ago… and had no reason not to trust

argh! I like the chemistry with these two

WHAT is it about seeing cheering and loving.. “our” Ms. Tracy in love ??? that’s a stretch… but when she gave up that full bodied laugh out loud giggling release

moment of silence

to see how enlivened
to see how short life calls you

from that to ( may as well be comatose) this stalwart figure still

this brings to the surface so much energies

As for those aforementioned forthcoming nuptials, I’m girding my loins and stocking up on plenty of barf bags in feigned anticipation of the big “event of the century” (NOT my words!…..)…At this late date, the only real question which remains for me is does Alexis have the nerve to wear white?…….My guess is, why, yes, of course, she does!!!!! Probably even a veil…LOL!…In terms of Tracy, I really don’t wish to see her portrayed as a victim hanging on for dear life either…..be it via illness or any more amores gone amok….she’s had beyond her share, that’s for sure! Quite frankly, the only lout yet to be present and accounted for amongst Ms. Quartermaine’s motley crew of misfit men past is Mitch Williams….a sleazy politico played by Dark Shadows’ Christopher Pennock! I’m waiting for him to materialize one of these days. He was her first onscreen mistake way back when a newly-introduced Tracy wore a boho chic look with her hair in an electrified frizzy blonde coiffure…sounds awful, but she was actually quite fabulous in that decadent disco-era sort of way! But before we revisit Mitch, we first must ascertain what not-so-pretty poison the louche Lord Larry imparted upon his ex-wife’s personage….not polonium, I hope! (Been there, done that, with Luke….) Still, there must have been something ghastly in that ganja that gave way to their goofy gigglefest in Mexico! ‘Twould be too much of a coincidence were that to have no bearing on Tracy’s present state of mind. Having said that, whatever is ailing this spaced-out society maven, may it be but a temporary affliction. Long live Queen Tracy Angelica of Quartermaine! P.S. A belated Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours!

@Shay.
If Alexis dares to wear a veil…symbol of youthful innocence ( which really is a mockery in this day and age, even for the young), I will be sick right along with you.
Check out Y&R ( the Mal Young; ‘steamy site’), you’ll get a kick out of Harry 1’s comments. Cracks me up. Later, babes.

Shay
Shay

Well, CeeCeeGirl, based upon the photo on the wedding thread, it would appear that (thankfully….) there is no veil, but I called the “white” thing right. And the style was completely what I’m sure both of us were anticipating………hardly much of a mystery on that count! LOL…Okay, I shall check on “Sir Harry’s” comments….Later!

CeeCee

Right on, Shaybelle. I would think that a stylish off-white, couture, two- piece would have been more the thing. At least, no virginal veil..HaHa. Later.

Mark my words. This is a soap opera family in the making (with Paul, Tracy, Dillon, and Hayden / Rachel)!!!!! 🙂

I’m not so sure Helena is really dead. Since I never tire of her “imagination” (even though I don’t like a lot of the stuff she puts in motion like Jake), and seeing that poison has been the choice of scheming women since forever…you never know. And I’m sure she or another Cassidine wants to fill the coffers again for a Nicholas and Spencer…especially with ELQ $’s.

On the other hand I don’t want Tracy out of action, and any more hospital bedside scenes for a while. So let’s just hope it’s the flu.

What if, Laura gave birth to twins and Hayden is Nic s sister.

Highly unlikely since soaps never do a story about incest and Nic sleeping with his half sister would be ick– I think we can definitely rule out her being the Prince’s sister.

There is still the missing Quartermain heir or heiress.

Wow ! you’re right ! imagine that

Hayden will get her money grubbing cashola

she’s redeamed herself in my eyes… because she truly loves … Nicholas

and now… hopefully ???? Hayden will be the deciding vote for ELQ ?

it still irks me… as she lords with Traci that she has some serious blackmail over her husband… in that yellow manila envelope she got from Curtis

it’s just a matter of time , before Nicholas finds out who “Rachel” is… so they both have something over each other… nullifying both their trust, marriage, and keeping the secret “again” of her identity… since Traci will be indisposed.

Stroke?

It looked like a mini-stroke to me. I hope it gives Jane Eliot something good to play, because just being snarky with Hayden is boring.

I think Tracy was confused the show was going to feature a scene with nary a Corinthos in sight…

A good new acting direction for JE. Instead of being fooled by yet another man, give her a health scare story. The Hayden father mystery is intriguing…

Paul, or someone else, could be drugging her to make her disoriented. I hope whatever drug it is makes her less snarky, less loud, less shrieking, and nicer, funnier, and more docile. She can still be Tracy without ALWAYS being a tyrannical bitch. No one is a bitch ALL the time unless they are plain psychotic. I will grant that the writing for this character has not been as grating as when Ron C. wrote for her, however.

I’m w/ Amy on this

you never imagine Tracy not in full charge of her faculties

tears unfold

what is she going through

Jane Elliott REELS constant

Is she Rebecca Shaw, Emily’s twin that was involved with Nicholas before. Maybe she had ano accident and had facial surgery and there changing hers and Emily’s Bio Dad to someone else!

Here’s a thought: Rachel related to Anthony Zacchara as illegitimate daughter? Tracy WISHES that she had only been an acquaintance of Rachel’s father, LOL…

I, too, thought she had a TIA. But a tumor would work as well. Something to to render her unable to communicate or to remember Hayden’s scheme & true identity for a while – ala Zechariah. And give Tracy a good story!

Oh, I hope TPTB don’t go that route–keep Tracy acerbic and vibrant–the show needs her character and energy. Enough lethargy going on!

Rose

Totally agree Nancy. I’m getting tired of the hospital, bedside stuff. So let’s just hope she ate the wrong something. I, too, want her part of the action.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Like i said before i still think its Paul…why bring in somebody else?

Rose

Where I get a little confused is that it was Rick who brought her to Port Charles. And in a town where everyone seems to bump into everyone at Kelly’s, GH or Metrocourt how could Hayden and Paul not have seen each other? Plus Paul seems more interested in the gunrunning business than ELQ. But soaps being what they are (thank goodness), there’s always the possibility of Paul and Hayden being related.

I am hoping they are not making her have Alzheimer’s. Soap characters can come back form the dead but not Alzheimer’s!

Well, what ever’s happening with Tracy, I feel pretty sure she’ll be sent to the Shriner’s Hospital for aging soap stars.

I think Tracy is ok she doing the same thing sonny did, and has a plan. I also think that Nicholas arranged for the marriage ceremony between himself and Hayden and in I doing so it is not legal. As for hayden I wonder if she is Paul’s long lost daughter. Due to that story line popping up here recently out of the blue. Or if Emily has been caught prisoner by Helena all these years. And I think Helena has a few big surprises for the folks in port Charles which may included Helena herself reappearancing . And with Jake in Therpy to remember his time on the island may be what starts the first domino to fall in the continued Helena saga.

So wow to many years of daytime soaps. I mean after all wasn’t it 30 + years ago that robert, Luke and crew saved the world from freezing Lol

I think they all are missing Spencer

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
