After the announcement of the casting news that General Hospital favorite Roger Howarth has nabbed a recurring role on the CW’s hit new series The Flash, many viewers and fans have posted comments on social media, and on this site, that they were concerned what that means for Roger’s role as Franco in Port Charles, and if that meant the Daytime Emmy winner was exiting the canvas?

To dispel any concerns or rumors, General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini, put out this statement on the status of Howarth with the ABC soap opera and his gig on The Flash: ” We are thrilled for Roger and this opportunity. Fans can rest assure he is not off the show, as the timing for this role worked out so that he can shoot during our current “GH” hiatus. ”  The show is currently on that hiatus.

So glad to hear there is more Roger as Franco to come?  Comment below!

With the way they film at GH it gives their actors a chance to do other things.

say what you will, but after being by far the most controversial of the Llanview 3 re-imaginings, Franco is the one who has now become the most vital to the canvas. I actually think he has a role within the fabric of the show, whereas when it comes to Kiki and now Silas, too (I liked him at first), I’m not entirely sure what function they fulfil, if any

Well,GB, if we are to believe that Kiki is Nina’s daughter and not Ava’s, there is an untold story in the works…that’s the reason for Kiki’s presence…the same could be said for Silas. He had no idea he had fathered a daughter in the first place…now, is he yet to be surprised by the fact that Kiki is his child by Nina? I can understand your frustration since I feel the same way, where it seems that these characters are just there taking up useless space. I do hope that we will see some action soon. Kiki seems to be… Read more »

i get that they’re teasing that and that may very well be the outcome (poor Kiki, she changes her parentage more often than others do their underwear), but once the reveal and the fall-out are played out, we’ll be back to Kiki being the daughter of a schemer torn between her mum and her love for golden boy. we’ve had that.

‘Tis I again, Patrick. I also think that Michael and Kiki are dull as a couple…I wonder what they’re like in real life….I would hope they’re more upbeat, for lack of a better word. I’ve said this before; Michael is so old for his age. Sadly, Kiki was better off with Morgan. I know she has it in her to excel in her role…I really think this character’s association with puppy-eyed Michael drags her down…down..down. Maura? There’s no question as to her grandeur as an actress. As far as I’m concerned, she, Michelle and Roger are the leaders of the… Read more »

So happy to hear that Roger isn’t leaving the role of Franco for now. I glad that he can film the Flash while GH is on hiatus. If an opportunity ever did a arise for another role for Roger in primetime or in movies and he had to leave GH to presume that opportunity, I would be sad to see him leave but thrilled that he had a chance to do other projects.

RH was superb today. We (I) want Franco and Nina to get rid of their ill-fitting significant others and move into a brownstone together and scheme and plot to their hearts content, w/Mama Madeline dropping by on occasion. Can you imagine? When MS joinied GH I immediately thought of those 2 together. They are the same. I’ve noticed many who don’t like either character much are cheering for them to be together. That says a lot. Roger Howarth’s scenes with Michelle Stafford’s scenes w/Donna Mills (who’s on FIRE!) today were sensational. They sizzled. Nina’s whisper in Franco’s ear and him… Read more »

@Laurie…I haven’t seen today’s show yet but the way you described Franco cocking his head like she was going in for a kiss…it’s just those subtle little things he does that I love. It’s a glance, an aside, a sneer…just little nuances that make him so fun to watch.

isn’t that what saves him…. our Roger Howarth

his mannerisms’

i adore his delivery

it’s so much more…

I wish so much more….

I never watched OLTL… I bought him as Paul on ATWT…. but his upheaval as nuTodd… and so much wasted time… as nuFranco
and I buy he’s Franco…. just not the way he’s written…. as the lachey for the character of Carly

I’d rather see Franco move on with Nina… to preserve history… if that’s what’s roiling fans of

Roger Howarth is so good at endearing and pulling fan in

Hi Patrick…

If you’re in the mood to check out RH on OLTL…look at youtube…1994/1995. He was soooo young, good-looking (still is) and had long hair. Kassie DePaiva is Blair, his wife.

Oh, yeah, Laurie. Nina and Franco !!!! …..that scene you describe was just rich….chock full of sexiness…Isn’t she the tease!? It looked to me as if Nina was giving Franco an offering….I could almost feel their mingling breaths…hear the beating of their hearts…I was absolutely captivated….enraptured….WOW…I was transported to nethernetherland.

So FV has no problem working with his favorites from OLTL like RHo but won’t work with Kimberly McCullough/Robin a GH VET who has said she would do both GH and direct if they work with her schedule. Seems FV has no problem working with RHo schedule and others. He even made a deal that Billy Miller and Michele Stafford couldn’t refuse. ALSO, FV had AS a DOOL actress direct . Yet he won’t do same for Kimberly McCullough. RHo isn’t GH history nor are the others and Kimberly is. I smell a skunk and that stinks.

Dan

They have worked with KMC and her schedule, that’s how she’s been able to make the appearances she’s made over the past year. FV has made it clear publicly on numerous occasions and KMC has as well, that she has an open door to come back to GH when it works out for her.

If you wanna know why she’s not back on the show full-time, I would take that up with her, not blame the people at GH, who have bent over backwards to accommodate her directing schedule and other projects.

Cathy – KM chose to leave. Period. She grew up on the show & wanted to try new things – as all adults do. Directing is what she wanted, so she left to do that. She comes back to help story. If she wanted to be here, she’d be here. Frank & Ron are not hurting her career or keeping her from her dreams.

Glad RH is staying: Wedding Day Prediction! Bobbi and Lucas were talking about Lucas becoming a doctor at GH…Lucas is reluctant…Lucas attends the wedding of sister Carly to Franco…someone gets shot, knifed or hurt in some way…Lucas medical knowledge kicks in and he saves that persons life…Lucas is a hero, and decides to become a doctor after all!!!

Perfect, jimh. Is Lucas already an authentic Laureate of Medicine, or was he just in the throes of becoming one? I’m confused. I love Lucas…he’s another hottie.

Franco is working for me because the character is developing some layers to him– if they don’t paint him in a corner by making him another “villain” on this show– he has the potential of being the next anti hero– much like Luke was. But I would prefer to find out Heather was lying and Franco is still a Quarterrmaine after all and still is Jason’s brother. Now that we have a nuJason– being played by Billy Miller it would be a shame not to have these two strong actors characters connected again. And since they had similar brain tumors… Read more »

RC

People seem to forget he was a donor match for Danny’s bone marrow transplant which would indicate to me that Franco was indeed a Quartermaine (but because of his brain tumor he couldn’t donate). The real twist would be if he was indeed Heather’s son, but with Alan or Edward being Franco’s father. Don’t know how exactly that could be explained but if Franco could be retconned into being Scott Baldwin’s son, then anything is possible (much as most matters on soaps typically are).

RC…i said a long time ago Franco couldve been Alans son… Heather was in love with another doctor(off camera) and secretly had an affair with him(because she was involved with Scott at the time) whom Heathers mother never approved of…that doctor decided to get Heather pregnant so her mother would agree to them getting married but because he couldnt have children of his own he stole a sperm sample of Dr. Alan and told Heather it was his own…but after Heather became preg the doctor became ill and on his death bed confessed all to Heathers mom…Alice Grant never told… Read more »

His genius? He’s Todd with another name. Acting genius is the ability to create a unique and memorable character. When you see the actor acting, when you see an actor playing a new role but see a previous role he played, it is not genius. Ty Burrell from Modern Family is in “The Skeleton Twins” and you don’t see Phil Dunphey. Josh Gad was recently in “Wish I was Here” and knocked it out of the park with no hint of his previous characters and in dramatic role. Those are two examples of great actors. That is genius, when you… Read more »

Well, I agree somewhat. Great acting is exactly what you said. However, great acting is also the ability to take a hated character, make him human, and get people to feel sorry for him. That’s what RH did with Franco. I love RH but absolutely could not imagine ever wanting Franco to stay. Now…. And I hate to admit this out loud…. I like his character. Is he like Todd? Yes. And I am just fine with that.

I was typing my first response so late I forgot the great example of Tony Geary and his Fluke. When I see Fluke on screen, I don’t see Tony Geary acting, I don’t see Luke Spencer, I see a totally different character and I believe it is that imposter Fluke. He looks like Luke obviously, it is the same actor, but he is able to make so many subtle changes, his voice, speech pattern, facial expressions, physical mannerisms, body language etc. That is acting. That is an actor who is doing his job, creating a new character under very challenging… Read more »

I think, ‘forte’ is a more fitting word than ‘genius’. Then again, acting SHOULD be every actor’s forte, n’est pas? I t does not take much of a genius to create a role, however, it does take the brilliance of a genius to make a character come to life and maintain that which enthralls the viewer. So, you both have a point. JMO.

GH50: I thought about what you wrote here and think you make some valid points. Roger really does seem like he’s always playing Todd Manning–only a lighter version. However, whether he’s Franco or GH’s version of Todd, he’s goofy, funny and not too deep. Gone is the darkly nuanced Todd from OLTL which is interesting considering he is now Franco, a performaning artist sociopathic murderer. Tony Geary really did morph into another man as Fluke. We the viewers could see that that wasn’t Luke just by his mannerisms and speaking style (which made it all the more distressing that the… Read more »

I’m a bit late to this comment but in case anyone stumbles upon it….I’ve been saying for months that Franco is Todd…I really do think that was done purposely to get around the legalities of not being able to continue the Todd character. They started off with Todd and Carly…then proceeded with Franco and Carly… They paired Kiki with Franco…even though they changed the story so that he wouldn’t be her father…they still kept them somewhat tied…as in Todd and Starr… Franco is lost; Todd was lost Franco is volatile; Todd was volatile Franco is sarcastic; Todd was sarcastic….

I don’t know…it may hurt Michael in the immediate but at the same time I want justice for AJ. I think it’s about time Michael turns away from Sonny. Knowing how Sonny stole Michael away from AJ, tortured AJ when he tried to get Michael back years ago, poisoned Michael against him when he was younger…then finally murdered AJ and had sex at his crypt… I’d say, yeah, let Michael know. It’s sickening to see his loyalty to Sonny knowing all he’d done to AJ. I want Michael to know the truth!

rebecca1,
AJ was a drunk, a bad man, real bad man, and a killer..
It was a good thing that Carly protected Michael from AJ and Michael had 2 parents that would die for him..
Sony has a great many faults but he has a father son great love for Michael. ..
Sonny and Carly did the right thing in taking Michale away from that horrible AJ he was not fit to be a father.

As far as I’m concerned, when Sonny had sex at AJ’s crypt (C-R-E-E-P-Y!!!!!), it proved (in terms of further proof and all) that Sonny has NO REGARD for human life AT ALL!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Sonny is nothing but a DISGUSTING DIRTBAG!!!!!!! Yep.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

Courtesy/ABC

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.
