No, she wasn’t there. Don’t recall an explanation, but that escaped my attention!

Love her as Diane…great character! But I think she’s a bit typecast…she’s always “upper crust”…even in True Blood she was an elite vampire with a haughty air.LOL. Still, always welcome on my screen! Love Gilmore Girls!

I love her, too, Rebecca. And, I have watched every single episode of GILMORE GIRLS. Plus reruns!!
I thought some segments of the original episodes ( at the time) were actually filmed in Hartford, Ct, as I am very familiar with the area. It looked like the business center of that city.

Hey CeeCee…Sunday morning…drinking tea and replying to you. But it’s 7am…my precious cat woke me up so here I am! LOL…of course now that she’s had her little breakfast she’s snoring away…and I can’t fall back to sleep! From what I read the pilot (of the original series) was shot in Ontario…the rest in the Burbank Ca studio. But!…it was based off a picturesque, idyllic town of Washington, Connecticut (so it was based on a town in Conn similar to what you indicated) where the writer visited and stayed in a beautiful inn. She said she was so taken by… Read more »

Hey, Rebecca. Yes, most towns north of Bridgeport– west of the river, ( Avon, West Hartford, Simsbury, Canton, Farmington; to name a few) in Ct are quaint. Some ‘cuter’ and more affluent than others. Hartford is the capital and a very urban city…..sort of lacks the special ‘serenity’ one assumes all towns and cities in Ct possess. But, overall, Ct is one of the wondrous states, for sure. Oh, I knew GILMORE GIRLS filmed mainly in California, and I am also very familiar with Markham, Ontario. Nonetheless, I was impressed how well Hartford was depicted—-when the residents of Stars Hollow… Read more »

This is great news! I’ve watched every episode of GILMORE GIRLS (like many others, I’m sure) and Carolyn will be a perfect addition. I can imagine the barbs flying between she and Kelly Bishop, who was criminally robbed of Emmy nominations year after year so that the SAME PEOPLE could win. Emily Gilmore was/is one of my favorite TV characters, so I can’t wait to revisit her and this wonderful show.

Diane is a defense attorney; not a prosecutor. She’s always on the side of the criminals.

Amen to that, Rose! Have you ever noticed that the good ones like Carolyn too often get away from Port Charles and we’re left with the same old characters played by those less in demand elsewhere????

If she had been at the trial for Julian on GH.. She would have stopped Alexis from testifying. That is why she was not written into that episode. I love her work on the show whenever she is on.. YES I agree.. she would be WONDERFUL on Kiefer Sutherland’s show.. Designated Survivor.

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.
