I think this is great news! That man knows more about how to write for a soap opera than those who have been writing for them for 30 years! The only thing I didnt like about his Night Shift was the gay storyline. it was awkward, out of left field, and completely out of place with all the GH veterans. GH achieved record viewership for Luke and Laura…all the soaps that have prominently attempted to showcase a gay abomination (romance) are now cancelled.

Mary, Dallas is a soap and aired one day a week… Revenge is a soap –

Michael Park as the President. That’s what I’m saying. Many great soap actresses to choose from for this part. Let’s just hope the people on this project reconizes our pool of talent and chooses from the soap world.

Capitol was a great soap so we shall see. Remember 9/11 today and keep those families who lost loved ones in your prayers!

He made NS2 so good, GH should have grab him immediately. But Guza was probably threatened when NS had better stories than GH at the time. NS was 100% Mob free. Used Jagger and Robert. Plus had a Gay Doctor! It was a shame ABC didn’t bring them to GH or do a 3rd season.

I agree!!!! I would LOVE to see what Sri could do with GH, minus the gay thing, of course. His writing had a heart and humanity almost reminiscent of the glory days of GH…under Claire Labine.

This week and in October, General Hospital looks to be ramping up some storylines that will have major consequences for the citizens of Port Charles.

Elsewhere, Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) wants Ava (Maura West), what will his next move be even if he is supposedly behind bars? Ava is frightened and says she is being stalked.  She also has been sipping one too many martinis lately to calm her nerves.  Will Halloween horrors come Ava’s way?

Meanwhile, the judge is ready to rule in the competency of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who has been mind-mapped with Drew’s memories.  How will the decision impact the lives of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Cameron (William Lipton), Kim (Tamara Braun) and more?

Watch the promo below  Then, let us know how you think these three storylines will play out via the comment section below by sharing your theories.

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”
