First, Congrats and Best Wishes to Sofia and Thomas. I really like Sasha now and find her heroic in many ways. Sofia is a terrific actress and meshes well with the other actors/characters especially Chase, Willow, Michael, Nina, and even Cyrus. I look forward to seeing what’s next for her…besides Gladys’ selfish machinations. Talk about a monster-in-law!

Congrats to Sofia and Thomas on your pregnancy. Sofia you will be missed while you’re away – take your time and enjoy your new arrival soon. I kinda figured she was maybe pregnant. Sasha seemed to be showing rather quickly after doing it with Brando. Love Brando and Sasha together…. I hope GH can make them work, and be a new super couple on the show. Much luck and best wishes to you Sofia and Thomas.

Congratulations! This actress has really improved, and in accordance, Sasha has really grown on me. There is just an inherent sense of sweetness, genuineness, and humility which breathes through her character. I’ll take Sasha over that phony, insincere, poser, Willow. I love Brando and Sasha together but Michael and Willow? Suffice to say, Millow makes me Ill- low.

Thank you, Harry. I’m so tired of Michael getting all these women, when Chase is a far better person. Not to mention far more attractive. At least Chase isn’t a typical Corinthos hypocrite. I hate what they’ve done to Willow.

Soaphound, also Harry, SuOOO
Seems like we all agree on this Willow, Michael, Chase fiasco. They should have told Chase about Willow and Michael’s re-newed love, it certainly wouldn’t have killed him back then, but now we also all know that when Finn saves his life as we know now he will, Chase will believe it was all Willow’s love that did it. My God, it’s so predictable. Don’t get me started on Abby and her custom made baby and missing husband, yuk!!

Harry…I really like Willow, have since day one for the same reasons you like Sasha…who I also like. But add her integrity, caring for others, fighting for Wiley, and how she has stood up for herself in a quiet way compared to other ladies in GH since taking on Valentine and Nina when in defence of a student being bullied by their daughter when she was teaching.

Hey Rose! I agree with you. Willow was my favorite new character. The actress is damn good too. I loved her as the dedicated school teacher who was fighting to get her life back after suffering the tragic loss of her baby and her traumatic past with the sexually abusive cult leader Shiloh. And I really, really liked her with Chase. But her coupling with Michael is kind of nauseating to me. It didn’t help that the writers had to constantly have Willow remark on the power of Michael’s sexual prowess. I find Michael to be an incredibly dull character… Read more »

Harry…I don’t mind Michael, but I think he was better with Sasha. But that boat has sailed. Now I like her better with Brando. But his mom is going to be an expected soap problem. Another thing about Michael I don’t like is how he can be the sooo honorable Q, but at the same time seems okay with Sonny’s business. Big contradiction that even showed up again in his recent conversation with Carly about her holding the Corinthos business together until Jason can take over. But don’t let me get started on that. And I never would want to… Read more »

Hi Nancy! Let’s put Willow back in the classroom and back with Chase. Michael is the kids of death for this character.

I knew something was off–
The baby bump is way too big for her GH pregnancy.
And the pregnancy story was noticeably rushed, not a lot of sense to it-
And–
Too many dumb baby stories going on-
Maxie’s story seems to have the most oomph to it-
The barf-bag story is Y&R Abby– that story is sickening.
Y&R supposedly the #1 soap and that’s the best they have to offer, sigh.
((worse than the music box story lol))
Congrats to Sofia and Thomas !

You mean Abby and her invisible husband? I fully expect the Y&R’s casting department to purchase a male mannequin so we can watch Abby make out with it. That’s how bizarre, and yet dull, this whole storyline is. I fast forward through the Abby scenes.

I’m with you here, Su000. Other than some token scenes with Nina, the Abby story is unbearable and feels like it’s gone on longer than four pregnancies! Maxie’s tale (along with some BRILLIANT acting) is far more compelling.

I haven’t watched the soaps for as long as both of you- but
Abby’s baby story has to be the worst/fail soap story ever.
It’s total roadkill..
beyond stupid- it’s a brain bleed.
The writers of that story are chin deep in embarrassment and shame.

(((( It’s worse than Plan 9 from Outer Space LOL
I luv that movi e it’s so horribly bad that it’s totally Awesome! lol
but Abby’s baby story is 100% junk))))

Yay, Su000, I also LOVVVE “PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE”, such delightful fun! My favorite bits are the changes in night and day in the same scene. And Bela Lugosi’s “replacement double” is priceless. How about that makeshift shower curtain in the airplane cockpit? I also get a laugh when I watch “NORMA RAE”, one of my FAVORITE films, and see Gregory Walcott as Sheriff Lamar arresting Sally Field. What fun memories he must have had!

I also think between the three soaps there are too many baby stories going on. With Abby and Chance being the most boring. Sorta feel sorry for Abby starting with the Chance actor having to be switched around, to having a happy marriage but not able to have a baby, to Chance leaving right after the honeymoon and all of the filler space in between.

Best wishes for you, hubby and new baby.I am loving the SL with Sasha and Brando but we know Gladys will be the mother-in-law from hell. I thought Brando was good at reading his mother, but since she got shot, he’s kind of softened towards her.

You got that right, Violet? Did you see that look Gladys gave? She is a snake in the grass, all right!

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Courtesy/ABC

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?
