This week on General Hospital, Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) are set to tie the knot as Michael has fast-tracked their wedding date all part of his plan to bring down his fiancée!

Michael has now taken it upon himself to free his mom, Carly (Laura Wright) from Ferncliff and he wants to prove that his mother is innocent, is not insane, and did not cause Nelle’s fall down the stairs.  Will his plan work, or backfire?  That plan puts him in ca-hoots with another man, Chase (Josh Swickard), who wants payback for ‘Janelle’s’ attempt at ruining his career, and who is all too familiar with the drowning death of Nelle’s ex.

In story. Michael meets with his attorney with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and tells her: “After today … everything changes.”

But in this latest promo from ABC, dressed in her bridal gown, Nelle walks down the aisle as Jason (Steve Burton) disapproves.  “Til death do us part.” a conniving Nelle exclaims.

Now, what will actually go down? Will Michael fake his death and set Nelle up for it?  Will Nelle try to kill Michael?  Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below, but first check out this week’s promo.

You know it’s bad when all you can think of during all this is, “Wow, Michael looks good in a tux.” So far Nelle has outwitted everyone so I’m not sure this will be her comeuppance yet. At least we get to see more of Chase.

I know exactly the part you are talking about, she is an amazing actress. She knows how to use them eyes for sure!

She will probably go into labor…her water breaks and Micheal drowns in it-lol

Yeah, she pulls her own plug and her water breaks!

Very funny, but actually have read she goes out with a big bang, or explosion. I sure hope its after the baby is born.

Timmm

They wouldnt kill the baby. Its another murder mystery that I’m sure will suck! At least Carly will be locked away and not a suspect. The suspects will be Sonny, Michael, Ava, and Chase. All of which could go be with Blackie for all I care!

No doubt, Jimh! ..And why not? It will add the crowning touch to this marital circus since nothing is so classy as a heavily-pregnant bride!!!!

Im almost done with the show…only watch for this story!!!

Say what you will about Chloe Lanier and this storyline, but, she is a great actress! I think she is smart to jump ship. She has her Emmy and she has done an outstanding job delivering this material. I wish her well in her future endeavors. As far as this storyline, I hope there is a “catch”, a real surprise for us viewers. With Colonel Sanders visiting “Heiny’s Hospital” we are do for a soapy treat. The show has been unwatchable for the past few (if not more) months.

You know, dmr, I was watching Chloe the other day and couldn’t get over how great she is in this role. She said something to Michael that was sincere but, behind her eyes, I started thinking, “She’s on to him”. That’s what a multilayered performance should be and she truly deserved that Emmy. I hope she isn’t gone forever. Evil hasn’t been so well-acted since Maura West joined the show.

dmr

I think Nelle is on to Michael, too. Michael isn’t very smart, and Nelle is very devious and can outsmart them, all! She has street smarts!

Hi, dmr,
Could the big surprise be the baby is not Michael’s? Oh, how I wish that were the case!!!!…..I desperately hope Carly does not get her hands on another baby.
Somehow, I get this nagging feeling that Lucas and Brad will be involved in the baby-drama in a big way.
As far as Michael, I consider him a nonentity and waaaay toooo big for his britches…..he tries to do the Sonny-stare, which Is so annoyingly-Sonny; but works … yet, it is lost on Michael……not a charming guy….he does as much for me as Devon or Kyle….and now Nate ( Y&R).
I have missed a few eps…..still have not had the chance to catch-up….but, I sense that TPTB are trying to make it look like Sonny killed AJ in self defense?? Gimme a break–say it ain’t so!!
I will never forgive Michael’s betrayal–his best acting, I feel, was when he stood up to both his mother and Sonny and took Avery. I saw a man then….took the bull by the horns and ran with it.
This whole thing of ” let’s get Nelle” scheming is pathetic…..I’ve seen better sleuthing on Nickelodeon.

dmr
dmr

Celia,
I caught the show the other day, and “The Dimpled Don” mentioned killing AJ right in front of Jason and Michael, neither flinched. Now, I haven’t watched religiously, but, I don’t recall Jason knowing that Sonny killed AJ. Jason has returned, and is CarSon’s lapdog, and Michael thinks he is the next “Enforcer.” The kid has no brains.
I share the same opinion with you about Devon and Kyle on Y&R. Daytime TV is in the gutter.

Jimh

Josslyn setting up Nelle-Joss is part of plan to expose her…its why Oliver wearing that perfume!!!!

Celia
Celia

You are right, Jimmy. Joss caught on. What will happen is anyone’s guess. I’m stumped. I had ideas, but Carly’s charging-in like a bull…ummm…dozer ( clunky shoes or not), deflated my brainstorming and dimmed my lightbulb.

Nelle and Micheal in cae accident with Brad…Brad’s baby dies and Nelle goes into labor and switches her son with Brad’s dead one…Micheal and Brad unconcious in all this!!!

ConnieMac

I can’t figure out whether Michael of GH or Sonny of DOOL is the dumbest. Really? Marry a psycopathic killer to bring her down? What has marriage to do with it? All anyone has to do is ask the most important question. (pay attention Jason) Who went upstairs after the accident? If Carly is telling the truth, somebody took it. And Sonny? What numbnut CEO who is being accused of sexual harassment meet with the accuser? And who would cover up what was most definitely self defense? Good grief.

dmr
dmr

Sonny makes me laugh-especially when he tries to be all “gangstah” with his hair slicked by packing heat! HAHAHAHA! Seriously, Sonny, you don’t have what it takes to pull it off!
& in today’s world, what company doesn’t have an updated Harassment Policy/investigation practices?-so stupid!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Me thinks he’s been watching the other Sonny too much.

Celia
Celia

You are too funny, dmr….How many times have I said that Sonny has the Vito Corleone syndrome?
I guess Sonny has never been to Sicily….the mannerisms are waaaay off and Sonny’s affectation doesn’t even come close.
Doesn’t even look Italian—-he should probably mimic another bandido…..Italians have a distinct accent….regional, even in their own country.
So Carly got out of Hades…..did Kevin/Ryan facilitate her escape somehow. So bizarre…..as nutty as Mary Pat. She belongs there ….with the loonies.

Soaphound
Soaphound

I agree ConnieMac. It’s supposed to be Drew with the memory loss, not Jason. I mean, Nelle works with Ava and pals around with her on occasion, what else does he need to know? As far as Sonny on DAYS…it’s a good thing Freddie Smith is so handsome (though the chest hair is too much for my taste), because his character often elicits giggles. And not the intentional kind. But that smile and that gorgeous hair go a long way. And I’ll really miss one of my favorite daytime actors, Greg Rikaart. Hopefully GH can find a spot for him.

Celia
Celia

Thank you, ConnieMac….Exactly!! As I said, this is all child’s play.
The cover-up business is actully comedic…..this is drama??
You mention Sonny Kiriakis—-another dumb move ( I do Love Sonny K) , en par with “let’s get rid of the body in the rug” brainstorm—–self-defense on both counts.
If this new “plot” of marrying Nelle to “trap” her was designed to prop-up Michael; to give him the “jewels” to be a man? I don’t know what to say—-failing miserably. Michael is the ‘forever-boy’ for me.
Another thing? I am done with the Carly-Kevin sessions ( if he is, indeed, Kevin)……I will chalk them up as some of the most painful scenes I have ever seen—-does anyone really care about her nostalgic memories with Morgan?……or, coming to grips with his death so she could go on with her life?…..is it her own guilt of having been a non-existent, selfish mother?…..seems to me she was doing just fine appropriating another woman’s baby.
Good or bad, Ava is Avery’s mother…….and, what makes Carly a ‘better’ parent? Good grief is right!!! Right up my alley…..

Nelle is one of those soap opera characters who will never pay completely for her sins. She may be taken away but one day but she will escape only to come back and wreak havoc once again. Or… she will evade this trap, taking the baby (or perhaps leaving it in a safe place for Michael, thereby showing a shred of humanity), and the threat of her return will always remain hanging over Carly and Co.

Timmm
Timmm

This whole story and this sneak peak does NOTHING for me! I really dont care if Michael dies and Nelle takes Chase out as well! Who cares anymore? GH is a shell of itself and Frank has cheapened the show into a high school play!

Jillie
Jillie

Then why do you keep watching?

Timmm
Timmm

Because JILLIE, like some here who QUIT because of a story, a cast member being let go or a recast, Thats not me! I’m a fan until the end.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Well said, Timmm. Half the fun of daytime is making fun of the dumb stuff. For example, when have we EVER seen a soap detective as smart or diligent as Olivia Benson from SVU or any of the forensic folks from any CSI? Paul Williams is denser than concrete. And Dante? He spent more time on his hair than on any case.

dmr
dmr

& it’s like a train wreck, you just can’t take your eyes off of it.

Celia
Celia

Because that’s what we do, Jillie…..more out of loyalty….then we come on here, as warranted, and give out take on plots, situations, and whatnots.
It is a natural reaction…..those who love soaps, truly loooove soaps, become disenchanted and almost hurt by the nonsense that is taking place in practically all the shows. It seems they are copying each other….no variables. I think the PTB should hear this—-no effort or originality. Have they run-out of ideas? I hope not….the thought is funebral.

Stay well.

lol right I agree lol

Celia

True, right, GH fan?
We love our soaps….we do accept, grudgingly, what the ‘elders’ dish out, whether we agree or not. Thus, the ofttimes, verbal ‘rebellions’, LOL.

The bigger question… Will there be KFC extra crispy served at the reception?

I am being silly, but I had to really laugh,at that photo they took of Nelle and Michael after their wedding. She looked OK, but he looked stoned or something, and I am still laughing as I write this.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
