GH is smart. They let their actors be artists and do other projects. Over at Y&R they cuff them to that role. Ask Billy Miller! Hence, out with Billy, in with Burgess. BOOOOOO!

Not a fan, myself but I wonder if she watched HBO’s Going Clear? If you’re not familiar with it, it’s an indictment on the wrong doings and abuses conducted by The Church of Scientology. Stafford is a known Scientologist.
I would gain a whole lot of respect for Stafford is she left the church and publicly took a stand. They are really a creepy organization.

Oh wow. I didn’t know she was a scientologist. I like her on GH but I completely agree with you, Harry. Creepy…cult…group. Stories about their mindset and intimidation tactics are the common thread among those who’ve left.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
