ABC has released a brand new General Hospital promo for this week and this summer; teasing the return of familiar faces and some brand new secrets!

The highly anticipated return of GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) kicks-off this Friday on the June 5th episode of the daytime drama series, and from the looks of it she is involved in some high stakes drama as Laura has a gun in tow in a scene with her former husband and partner Luke Spencer (Tony Geary)!  And then there is a the reveal of Holly Sutton (Emma Samms) holding a gun too! How does this all dovetail into Tony Geary’s exit storyline that will play out for the next few months on-air?

Then, there is the continued conspiring and secrets between Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and Rosalie (Linda Elena Tovar) and Nikolas and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), plus what is Lulu (Emme Rylan) so shocked about in her conversation with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna)?

Watch the exciting promo after the jump, and let us know what you think will happen with the big returns … and what are the big new secrets?

I don’t like the fact that GH wants to try and break up Dante and Lulu. I am not the only fan that is unhappy and I wish the word would get to Rom C

Patrick

I’m not feeling this either : Valerie….

she doesn’t have a lot of presence as it is… the camera does not love her

it seems to me… the writers are fettering out her character to see where she flies best… and that’s Dante or Nikolas

she doesn’t seem like a strong enough character

the one that ooh la la ‘ed me out yesterday… was the beautiful Rosalie !

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

yes, Patrick – that’s exactly it, the camera just doesn’t love the actress who plays Valerie. As for Elena Tova? who plays Rosalie, it still boggles my mind why she was never put on contract. This actress is skilled, she’s just that good. I hope she’s in scenes with Michelle Stafford once again. She is brilliant and I hope GH, smartens up, and offers her a contract. We just lost the brilliant actor who played Carlos, he was just recurring, too. As for Valerie, I hope her story concludes soon and she departs before Luke. The character didn’t take off.… Read more »

I agree with you , Patrick and Jeremy. Valerie is far from beautiful, (sorry Timmm). Beauty comes in many shades. The first time I saw her, she was pretty; no stunner, though. But, now? There is nothing there. She has no personality…she’s actually very annoying. Sometimes looks,or lack thereof, mean nothing. It depends if the physical appearance is accompanied by an effervescent personality.
The first thing that someone notices and is attracted to is someone’s good looks. But, if said someone’s personality is shot, then she/he becomes a bore.

Well put, Patrick, Jeremy and especially, CeeCee!….”Val-Chops” is giving me that dreaded feeling of deja-vu from what I first experienced with Sappy….a truly boring and unnecessary miss just taking up space for no good reason. How many more times must we go through this? I cannot understand why it is so difficult to find young actresses that are both attractive and engaging….the show runners struck gold with KT’s Britt…she was an absolute dynamo, and yet, they let her get away whilst stubbornly clinging to the Sapster and now Val-Chops. It rather beggars belief…..Britt needs to be brought back at all… Read more »

I don’t know…. (now) that Sloane told Anna… about Nikolas involvement in the riggged election !!!!!

dang it all …. does this mean that Anna is going after Nikolas… or

Nikolas with all his connections from a higher up… keep Anna at bay?

I don’t want this to bring “our” Nikolas CASSADINE down! he’s Too good

Why all of the guns all of the time in GH, and not just the criminals? Now it’s Holly and Laura as part of the Luke/Tony farewell tour. I’m so damn sick of how guns have infiltrated everyday real life…this is the last thing I watch soaps for. This promo totally turns me off.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

yeah…. ugh… me too… am sick of this

it’s the last gunslinger escapade for Luke and his starlets ? LOL

I didn’t mind seeing Holly… but why oh why do they denigrate Laura…

she’s a powerful woman ! LOL OK that’s how the audience would like to see her

a mature powerful woman making choices on her own…

I don’ know… 4 senseless “let go’s”

Ava shot Connie
Sonny shot AJ
Anna shot Carlos
Carlos shot Duke

the list is endless… 6 degrees of separation… etc

LOL… I don’t know about you… but i’d be enjoying GH that much more … if Connie, AJ, Carlos, and Duke, …. plus Britta, and Ned, were still lively denizens of PC

I watch 2 of 4… it’s all relative

That’s priceless, Harry, but alas, many of the clerks probably need it far more than you ever could. Case in point: A few weeks ago, I went into a popular local (chain) drugstore to purchase some giftcards. As the cashier rang up my purchase, she let out a huge sneeze and proceeded to spray said cards with God only knows what kind of germs, not expending any effort whatsoever to cover her mouth or shield my merchandise. I simply stared silent daggers at her, causing her to comment, “I’m finished now,” to which I replied, “So am I.” I turned… Read more »

Shay, that courtesy clerk must have been raised under a rock! If I might be indulged in conveying another pet peeve, I am so tired of folks using the grocery store isle to have very LOUD conversations on their cell phones. I really do not want to hear the mundane private details of their lives and yet they look at me with irritation as IF I am trying to eavesdrop when all I want to do is grab a carton of 2 % Milk. Now,to make this GH related–which GH characters do you think are most liable to be blabbing… Read more »

Yes, Harry, along with far too many other clueless ones in the current public service sector! I forgot to add that after I witheringly stared down said clerk, she just looked back at me in an utterly glazed over, deer-in-the-headlights manner before announcing her sneezing fit was dunzo. Sorry, but people contaminating any of my purchases with their germs is just a major no-no in my book, and when it involves foodstuffs, it especially drives me around the bend. (Etiquette 101, folks! LOL.) As for your GH query, I would choose the annoyance called nuKiki and/or Nina the Nutter for… Read more »

I wish they could bring back Liz Taylor as a hologram of sorts, but they have another Helena…meaning, seriously, they are bringing out the big guns (no pun) for Luke’s exit/Geary’s retirement…I do love the return of Laura and Holly, both Ms. Francis and Ms. Samms have a similar type of grounded class, I hope they are portrayed in a very posh yet down-to-earth storyline…and I just know that somehow,Tony Geary will see to it!

Genie Francis, Emma Samms and Tony Geary together again…I can’t wait! Tristan Rodgers hasn’t been seen in Genoa City in months. I thought he had a contract with Y&R, but he is MIA. Adding TR to the mix would be all kinds of awesome!

I agree Robert should have a part, Luke and Robert are BFF

nancy dillingham
Guest

I’d love to see Robert (Tristan Rogers) come back and trade zingers with Tony Geary–if Luke can get up the energy–Tony Geary seems totally drained after all those horrid, over-the-top histrionics he displayed as the so-called “Fluke” character.
Remember he won the Tony for that !!!!????
But I’d surely like to see the Tony Geary I know and love–humorous yet tender–and with a moral center–JUST ONCE BEFORE HE FADES INTO THE SUNSET.

Timmm

CBS worked with NBC in regards to Eileen Davidson. You never know, Tristan could make a surprise appearance?

That wasn’t difficult. Even though they’re on different networks, DAYS and Y&R are both Sony soaps.

Unfortunately for the fans it seems Y&R and GH have been embroiled in a “casting coup” war. Maybe that has died down a bit and they would consider sharing like good boys and girls. Fans seem to suffer to TPTB egos.

I have supported Valentini/Carlivati as they remade and saved GH; but they have really lost their way in the last year. I’m sad about that. Carlivati’s premise behind most stories is to take the action and characters to the Nth degree, to unbelievable, and irreparable places, then tell story around backing out, or undoing the action previously taken. The Ava story is a perfect example. He had her kill babies and adults and commit other heinous crimes until she had to be segregated from the rest of the canvas when all along the most gripping aspect of her story was… Read more »

I agree with you! I have loved this show for 25 years! Devoted fan. Now I go for a week and just think it is too ridiculous to enjoy. Ava is so great! Now what the heck is going on with “Denise”- dumb! I want to have a couple to root for, a couple who is in love and it is so fun and passionate. All these dumb adventures make the characters we have loved and known look stupid and unlike themselves. How long do we have to wait for jake to know he is Jason? Why can’t Carly and… Read more »

Elizabeth

Have to agree with about 98% of what you say Red, but unfortunately there is extremely little story to tell at this point if it has to revolve only around characters that haven’t been ruined by off the rails plots over the last two years. Who in your mind would that even include?

Also I agree with Li in that I SO hope the summer does not turn into a cartoon with Laura and Holly to see Luke off.

Timmm
Guest

Red, I’ve never heard it quite like that before but “Remade” is accurate. You made some really good points. I hate how Anna slept with “The Chin” three days after she laid Duke to rest. UnCHARACTERistic!

Maybe if they bring back the old luke/laura/emma/scorpio adventure TG will be inspired by the magic to stay on board a while..well, one can always hope..

Why is everyone so impatient. Stories take time to tell and a quick payoff is just about as disappointing as a guy in bed offering the same. I look forward to what Mr Carlivati has in store. He has made me a fan with his style of writing and broad sense of humor. I have to say that I don’t buy the transformation of Nikolas into Mr Bad Guy but hey he is worth looking at in any characterization. So go to town Nikolas, but please do it minimally dressed. =)

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

I agree Mateo BUT Jakeson for example, its gone on too long. Its not like they dont have many other stories to tell after the big reveal. And yes, I agree, if your going for the quick pay-off, there better be a good breakfast with mimosa’s!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

I agree, Timmm. I am generally not an impatient person, but, I think everyone’s patience is waning as we speak.
The Fluke failure completely mutilated my patience. Now, I am still waiting, not only for Jake to find his rightful place in PC, but also for Nina to get out of the depth and swim to shore.
Oh, BTW, Mateo? Don’t underestimate a quickie…LOL.

Fanny

Agreed this storyline is like a long drawn out sentence… When TPTB originally recast the role of JASON, I’d made peace with the knowledge that Steve B. wouldn’t be returning to GH. FV should have worked a little more diligently at keeping Steve around, it started out by Steve wanting additional time off so he could spend a good amount of un- interrupted time with his family in TN. Work for 2-3 weeks straight, w/ equal consecutive time off… Everyone on GH is currently working that schedule, where was the hardship there?? Finally playing the same character for 21 years… Read more »

Everyone wants Laura to straighten Nick out BUT what if Laura is in cahoots with Nick to take over ELQ? Silly? No more sillier than her toting a gun. What the hell happened at her check-up!

Well, Timm, we have to wait and see that scene in context. Remember Laura wearing a pink ball gown while holding the huge machine gun during the Cassadine freeze operation? Did she say,”Say hello to my little friend!”? I cannot remember.
And I like the idea of Laura running ELQ with Nikolas while butting heads with Traci.
That’s a great idea.

Well wouldn’t it be a great twist and really great intro for Laura’s return to Port Charles, if SHE has been off working with WSB all this time, and kicking ass Herself. She could have been working along with Lucky and Ethan, and having HER OWN adventures chasing criminals working in the WSB herself.. She and the Guys, could have been helping out Frisco and Scorpio. This would keep Laura in town after Luke, Lucky, Ethan, and Holly are off again, as an Agent, like Anna She would have that job, while still OUR LAURA, who is in some way… Read more »

While I cannot say it doesn’t make any difference who writes the stories, I don’t think everyone thinks the same thing about any writer. I have complained about writers having some characters do some things they have had happen, but no matter who writes, good, or bad, there will be people who don’t care for the writing. I just hope the few soaps left can persevere through some of the writing.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
