GH Poll: Who Is The Patient At Ferncliff In The Room Next To Carly?

Courtesy/CBS

On General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) has been hearing screaming and then morse code from the patient locked up next to her at Ferncliff!

While her therapist Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) brings up if the patient has been bothering her, she recently said, “no”.

Who is being held against their will, or are have they been committed to the state mental institution?

Here are some theories being tossed about:  Has their been a switch and Kevin’s twin brother, Ryan is actually posing as Kevin and treating her, while the real Kevin is locked up next to her?  Does Kevin know it’s his brother Ryan who is next to Carly, but will not tell her?  Could a very much alive Morgan Corinthos be next to his mom, Carly while he is having a manic episode and was put away for it?  Is it someone that no one is thinking of?

Take our latest GH Poll and cast your vote who you think is trying to communicate with Carly! Then, let us know via the comment section below, who it will be when it is finally revealed.

|It’s Frank Valentini. Somebody finally realized all the damage he’s done to the show since February 2012, and thought it was time he got locked up. Though I would have gone with the padded cell. That room that Carly is in has too many hard surfaces & sharp corners to be a “safe” place for anybody who is truly a danger to themselves or others.

Ha! Satan, I agree and if this is a damn red herring leading up to yet another new character, or worse yet, Morgan, I will be so damn mad.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! YES! Valentini has decimated our beloved show!

I think it’s the dead guy that Sonny buried, Mike unburied, and now Mike claims is under Julian’s bar. The guy just won’t stay dead! Sound stupid? Well, that’s how little I care about yet another Carly-centric tale. I guess it could be a seat, sorry, cell filler for Nelle until she arrives. Or for the fool who keeps chopping off Billy Miller’s beautiful hair and making sweet Detective Chase bury his handsome face under that silly beard.

When this whole idiocy of Croton-on-Hudson surfaced, I jokingly said the body was buried within the walls of Charlie’s.
The pub suddenly became the place to be. I questioned it……now, it seems to have become a reality.
Well, Soaphound, your idea is not so far-fetched that it could not be true.
The mystery person could be anyone. I am not familiar with all the past characters of GH.
My guess is Kevin or Laura. But, then, Morgan comes to mind, along with those Zaccara guys.
I think the fact that IT is so conveniently right next to Carly’s cell could be because it’s Morgan? He wasn’t that brainy.
Whoever is in there is a smart, benevolent ‘entity’…..Maybe? Duke? Is is malevolent? Alex? The Russian guy?
Of course!! Duh…..oh, those pesky Russians……it’s always the Russians.

Soaphound

Ooo, Celia, what if it IS that sexy Dr. Klein who held Jason in that Russian hospital? I really liked the actor, Gene Farber, who played him. He’s no Chase but he was memorable.

Celia
Celia

As we all know, Soaphound, anything can happen….and most-likely will. Yeah….Gene was hunky, albeit the hottest guy on soaps, today, is Matt ( Griffin)…. my cousin Daniel looks so much like him, it’s scary….especially the nose and jaw-line.
What do you think of this…… is it possible for Julian to suspect something? Does he know something Sonny or the viewer does not know? Is he onto Sonny about the buried guy? Is that the reason for the ‘expansion’?

Soaphound
Soaphound

Celia, I don’t think Julian knows, but it’s kind of fun watching Sonny squirm. Down side: yet more of Sonny and mob stories. Yes, Matt Cohen is insanely beautiful; I wish the character gave him more to work with. Of course you know my heart belongs to Billy M. There’s just something besides the blue eyes, blonde hair, and heart-melting smile. There seems to be, by all accounts, a really good person there, too, and that really turns me on. Probably true with Matt as well. And newbie Josh has the same, decent man quality I admire…and fantasize over.

Timmm

You are a smart women! I hope Julian makes Sonny crawl! Anyway, in the cell next to Carly, it has to be someone connected to Carly. Yeah, it could be Moron. I dont know who else it could be? Maybe its Uncle Luke? Ha Ha Ha!

Celia
Celia

Thanks, T……
A notice came up, in pink, LOL, telling me I am posting my comments too close together….in and out of the house, here.
I am so strapped for time I feel like FIGARO. Everybody wants me…nonstop….Mom, Mommy, Cee, Aunt CeeCee,Celia, Peanut, ….going nuts here. Ha!!
Too many people in one hang-out. I say!! My sisters and brothers are all here, but who do all the kids turn to?…..need freedom!! Even with four sitters and Nanny around….go figure.
Can’t seem to catch a breath…
Anyway….Julian looks like the Tomcat who just ate the canary. But, Soaphound does have a point. How would he know?…a little birdie could have told him? Mimicking the fowl jokes here. I hope I’m not plagiarizing,LOL. I found them THAT amusing.
Julian is expanding Charlie’s…..either he’s onto Sonny or he’s legitimaly looking for a bigger clientele. Perhaps he will turn the place into a pish-posh establishment?
Methinks there will definitely be a story here, Timmmy….hope it’s a worthwhile one.

I think this storyline is tied to Croton too.

I hope that it is Morgan.

Harry

WHY? Morgan was the most insidious, horrible little brat I ever had the misfortune of witnessing. He better damn well stay dead.
I hope it’s either Ryan or Kevin.

Celia
Celia

Yes, Harry….as you suggested I did a little reasearch….Ryan ‘was’ diabolical, and that’s the crux of this imbroglio. The more diabolical a person is, the more believable he/she becomes……too much of a sharp intellect goes hand in hand with the criminally insane. Kevin is Ryan and vice versa.
This is why I don’t think it’s Morgan….too much of an imbecile.
It is up to the writers to give this story credibility and dignity.

Celia
Celia

PS, Harry…..
Kevin, as the mystery “guest” does make the most sense, albeit, considering her past battle with mental health, Laura looks like a fab candidate…..I said as much days ago.
Yet, I also said that this would be the best opportunity for her to return, sane, trying to ‘decypher’ the change in “Kevin”.
Am I making any sense, at all? LOL.
Shay did say that Laura would see right through the charade.

Yes, me too!!!!!!!!!!

I thought of that, and somewhere I read, it could possibly be Laura, as she has been in an institution before. It sounds like a man’s voice, and somehow I can’t picture either of those women beating out an S.O.S on the wall.

Please, not The Moron Corinthos! Please! No! I think the character may have something to do with Charlie’s Pub/Croton “mystery.”

Maybe it’s the REAL Jason Morgan! Or the real Drew! And the Drew we have is really AJ and the Jason that’s been following around Carly like a puppy is…oh, wait! He must be the real Jason. Forget it.

Steve

Can’t be Morgan. He’s not smart enough to know Morse Code.

Don’t know how they could do a Kevin-centric storyline without Laura. If it were Ryan, we’d have more anvils dropping (especially from Felicia).

Who else? Nell’s presumed-dead boyfriend? Tommy Ashford? Bobby Martin (alive after all these years?)

It’s Kevin…remember, he is a cryptographer, so it would make sense that he would try to communicate with a “code”! Why doesn’t he give Carly his name in code?

Maybe this is Laura’s return? She figured out that her husband wasn’t her husband so Ryan locked her up. No matter who it turns out to be, if Ryan was dumb enough to lock that person up next door to Carly “Dog With a Bone” Corinthos, I don’t know what to say.

Lucy

I will say it is Olivia Jerome

Ellen

Whoever the person is they need to know morse code. Kevin might, Faison might, doubt if Morgan does. Maybe Anna but why would Kevin hide her. Here is a twist, what if it’s the real Drew??
My guess it is a Kevin/Ryan storyline and the truth will come to light when Laura returns.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.

Sean Kanan, Tristan Rogers & Timothy Woodward Jr. Talk On The Making Of New Digital Drama ‘Studio City’ & Respect For Soaps

Just as we closed out 2019, the world of digital dramas saw the debut of a riveting new show, Studio City.  The series initial season can be binged watched in its entirety on Amazon Prime, which follows the life of Hollywood actor Sam Stevens and the cast of “Hearts on Fire“, America’s number two daytime drama, as they navigate the chaotic world of soap operas and their own messy personal lives.

Studio City was co-created, executive produced, and stars longtime daytime favorite, Sean Kanan (Ex-AJ, General Hospital, Ex-Deacon, B&B).  In it, Kanan plays Sam, who plays a doctor on the soap-within-the show, and whose life off the set provides the back-drop for much of the drama and heart and soul of the series.

Kanan has surrounded himself with quite the acting company which includes: Carolyn Hennesy (Diane, GH), Sarah Brown (Ex-Carly and Claudia, GH, Julia, ATWT, Madison, DAYS and Agnes, B&B), Patrika Darbo (Ex-Nancy, DAYS and Ex-Shirley, B&B), Scott Turner Schofield (Ex-Nick, B&B) and the one and only, Tristan Rogers (Robert, GH, Colin, Y&R).   In addition, feature film director, Timothy Woodward Jr. (who turns out to be a soap fan and appreciates the genre), is the man behind the camera directing the story and the cast through the ups, downs, laughs and tears of the story in Studio City,

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Kanan, Tristan Rogers, and Woodward to find out: how Studio City all came together, what their hopes are for it in the future, and about the tears (those who have watched the series have shed in episode 6) and pivotal moments portrayed by Sean, Tristan, and Patrika Darbo that have helped create a buzz for the show.  Check out what these gents had to share below.

Sean, in the stellar cast are many daytime notables including: Carolyn Hennesy, Sarah Brown, Patrika Darbo and Tristan. Did you reach out to them individually… and tell them what you had cooking with Studio City?

SEAN:  (Laughs) Did I reach out to them?  I had to beg them.  When you do a project like this, nobody is getting rich yet.  This really was a favor and a labor of love.  Patrika and I have really worked on more projects together than I can count.  Carolyn was on my radio show.  There was nobody else I wanted for their parts then Carolyn, Patrika, and Sarah. The idea of Tristan came a little bit later because I had written the character, but the character was actually very different.  He was actually a homeless guy.  He was a guy who had been a doctor and had been strung out on Vicodin, and had had a mishap in the operating room, and lost his license and then became homeless, but he was sort of this homeless sage poet who was giving Sam these bits of wisdom.  Ultimately, through meetings and compromises, it evolved into what it is now, and then, once that happened, I was like, “There’s no reason Tristan can’t play that,” and everyone signed on after a lot of coaxing, but they all did it for me.  I’m so grateful for that because it wouldn’t be what it is without those wonderful people in the series.

TRISTAN:  What happened was he said, “Will you do this part?”  I said, “Yeah.”  Sight unseen.  I figured Sean is an actor with relatively good taste (laughs) so he’s not going to give me a piece of s**t to do.  (Laughs)   Then, he sends me over some copy, and the copy is really good.   So, we set the week up, and that week turned out to be three weeks from hell for me because of my schedule!  I was doing General Hospital.  Then, I had Young and the Restless come in on top of that.  Then, I was doing The Bay, and somewhere in all of this I was doing Studio City.  So, I’m trying to figure out how I am going to do all of this.  In the meantime, Studio City said, “No, we’ve got to do it at a particular time because of the location.  We can’t get it at any other time, but these times…”  I said, “Okay,” and I’m thinking to myself, “God, how the hell am I going to make this work,” because I wanted to do everything, and I didn’t want to have to cancel anything.  I wanted to do it all because all of the projects were so good.  The Young and the Restless project was just an absolute joy to do working with Jess Walton (Jill).  We got Y&R all done in one day   So, I liked that.  After I finished that, was the day I started Studio City, and we were shooting  in a high rise where Sean and his wife Michele were living at the time.  They shot in a vacant apartment next door.  Right away, I was totally impressed with what was going on.  The level of production was really high.  I got the dialogue as I walked on set, and I had to sit down quietly because it was about a page and a half monologue, and I had to think, “Okay, what am I going to do with this guy?  How am I going to play him?”  Timothy Woodward is just fantastic.  He came along, we had a chat together, and he sort of said, “What are you going to do?” and I told him how I was going to play it, and he said, “Okay, go.”  We got it all in one take.  Bang.  I love that.

Photo: Studio City

SEAN:  There was a lot to do obviously, but we shot Studio City over five days.  We literally shot this at almost a soap opera pace.   I don’t think too many other actors; except for daytime actors could have pulled this off.  So, we were really blessed to have a bunch of pros.

DAYS, GH and Y&R Receive WGA Award Nominations For A Daytime Drama

TIMOTHY: Every one of them were extremely talented in their roles.  Patrika blew my socks off.  Tristan did what he did, I mean, he’s amazing.  Sarah was great.  Carolyn Hennesy was great   I do a lot of feature stuff, and you know, we are shooting only 4 or 5 pages a day.  Sometimes 6.  So, it’s not often that I am handing someone a 7-page scene and saying, “Hey, go,” especially the day before, and they’re nailing it every single time and being able to deliver every single time, and hitting their marks, which makes the editing process so good.  They’re able to do it, especially when you keep the writing grounded on the side of it that’s about behind the show, but it still has dramatic moments.  You’re giving the actors a lot to chew on, but they all performed the material so well.

Tristan, in story, you play Sean and Sarah Brown’s step-father. There is a major scene in episode 6 between Patrika and Sean where Sam learns about his biological father, and then there is a scene with you and Sean in the aftermath of that.

TRISTAN:  Yes, they are my adopted kids.   Sam is going through a low part in his life, and my character has to kind of sit him down and go, “Listen, kid.  You’re a good guy.  Don’t ever be told that you’re not a good guy.  You’re my son, and I love you, and there’s not a day that goes past that I don’t love you.”  When you’re on the set at the time, it was an extremely emotional scene.  Very, very emotional, and the fact that we got it right the first time, made the intensity better.  If I had had to go back and do that again, it would have been slightly different. That’s the way I work.”

Photo: Studio City

Had you worked with Sarah Brown before; given you both have worked on General Hospital in your careers?

TRISTAN:  Never.  That was a great thing.  I had two scenes with her, and I loved them both, and I thought she was terrific,  What Sean and Timothy have done is  put together a really interesting bunch of people to totally dig and are part of the daytime scene, who are totally familiar with it, and know what it is all about, and make it different.  The only other show I can compare this to is GH: Night Shift.   We were never allowed to develop it, but that was where we were at.  I think we are making the same kind of broad steps here that we were doing back then.  Hopefully, we are given more of a chance to develop the concept of it. 

What can you say about working with Timothy? He obviously loves the soaps too!

TRISTAN:  He’s a good guy.  I mean, they couldn’t have gotten a better person to do the directing and put that side of it together.  He was the perfect choice: having an understanding of the background of daytime and basically liking it for what it is.  He was ideal!

Photo: Studio City

Timothy, you were a fan of The Bold and the Beautiful, correct? How did you come into Sean’s orbit?

TIMOTHY:  Yes … when Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) was with dad, Eric (John McCook), or something right before that. (Laughs)  That’s how long ago that was.  I started telling Sean all that stuff, and he sent this cookbook to my mom, and then, he called me.  We stayed in contact and started talking about a few things, and then he contacted me about being in the book he was doing, Success Factor X, and he wanted me to be in the book, so I said okay.  So, we just stayed in contact, and then, I called him about another project. Later, Sean said he had an idea for a show and he’s been working on it for a while, and said, “Here’s the idea.  What do you think?”  I said, “I think it’s something that I could be interested in,” (because I’d always watched soaps back in the day, and it’s something that my mom is a huge fan of) and you know, I could get down with doing it.”  So, we kind of met, shook hands, and said, “Let’s make it happen.”

Did you tell your mom you were working with Sean Kanan?

TIMOTHY:  I did!  She loved it.  Sean actually sent her a video to her phone wishing her a merry Christmas last year.

SEAN:  This guy is a feature-film director. Tim was like, “I think that would be a really interesting challenge.  I’d like to do a digital series,” and then it comes to pass that this sort of tough-guy film director from North Carolina, is a total closet soap freak! (Laughs)

Photo: Studio City

Timothy, in Studio City, when Patrika Darbo has this very emotional monologue about what happened to her and about Sam’s father.  Sean also delivered a powerful performance in the scenes, just through his reactions to her heartbreaking story. I just thought the way he played it was so moving.  You obviously did a great job directing that scene.

TIMOTHY: I said, “Sean, I’m seeing behind the camera.  I’m telling you man, you’re telling so much with your eyes.  You don’t have to say anything.  Don’t tell her it’s okay during the scene,” because his initial reaction was, “It’s my mom.  I want to tell her it’s alright.”  I was like, “No.  Don’t.  I don’t want you to do anything.  You need to absorb this; you need to be in that moment of where you just don’t even know what to say.   You feel for her, but you also have this self-inflicted pain yourself, and you just need to listen.  Just listen to her.  Zone out of everything else and listen to her.”  That’s what he did, and he did it really well.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman ... And Shiloh's Widow

SEAN:  I remember that Patrika was incredibly generous because once we got her take; she was willing to go through all of that pain again so that my reactions would be as informed as it was.  Honestly I would like to tell you that it was me reaching into my big bag of actor tricks, but all I had to do was shut up and listen.  How can you not be moved by hearing that?  So, I just sort of shut up, didn’t have to hit my mark because I was sitting, and listened, and she did all of the driving on that, and she was just terrific and Timothy captured it beautifully.

Sean, when you envisioned the part of Sam for yourself; were you pleased about how it came across on screen?

SEAN:  Listen, the character is very close to who I am.  This guy is sort of a heightened version of me, but I am very much playing myself in this.  I’m playing myself in some situations that I have never had to deal with.  I was like, “If this is going to succeed or fail, it’s going to happen with me being my most authentic self, and it’s not someone else’s idea of who I am.  I’m going to show you who I am in this.”

Photo: Studio City

Trans actor, Scott Turner Schofield also appears in Studio City.  In part of his story, you are tackling a timely social issue of the plight of African-American trans individuals who are being murdered.  How did you come to the decision to include this arc in the series?

SEAN:  I felt it was important that we told a story that was LGBTQ and trans-centric.  I wanted Scott to be a character on the show that everybody knew was trans.  I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but maybe the character Scott plays is going to have a conflict with production and say, “Listen, I’ve got to be a trans character on the show because I need to sort of be a beacon to all of those people out there.  I’m living that life off-camera. ”  When you see him in his group and everything, and I think he is going to kind of stand up for himself, and that’s going to probably alter his story.  I thought it was important to be like, “My character knows he’s trans.  He’s my buddy who happens to be trans,” you know what I mean…. rather than it being this huge big thing.”

Was the goal to get Studio City released right at the end of 2019 to quality for Daytime Emmy consideration in the Digital Drama categories? 

TIMOTHY:  It was definitely something we think could get more eyeballs on the show, more attention to it if you will, in order to get it to the next level.  So, I think that’s important. Do this and get it even bigger … make more episodes and make them longer.  Sean keeps saying this series, is a love letter to soaps, and that’s what he told me he wanted to do.  You know what Sean is talking about.  There is somewhat of a disrespect level in our industry of, “Well, he’s on a soap,” and these people are so talented.  I mean, some of these daytime soaps have better ratings than a lot of the primetime shows.  You just read mainstream media or something about soaps, and you may think, “What?  There’s nobody watching it,” and then, you start looking at ratings and two and a half million viewers during an episode?  This is every day.  That’s a fan base.  There are dedicated people watching it.

SEAN:  It always bothers me when I see that; treating soaps like that because we work really hard, and there’s a lot of talented people involved with it.  It doesn’t always need to always be that whenever you see soap operas represented in “main series” projects, that they’re kind of the butt of a joke.  I was like, “That’s not going to happen because that’s not what they’re about.”

Photo: Studio City

Sean, you make things happen for yourself doing various projects whether it be: stand-up comedy, acting, books, etc and are one of the hardest working guys I know. Why do you think you have continually come back around, and in front of the daytime soap community all of these years?

SEAN:  I envy guys who have been on daytime consistently for 10, 15, 20 years, and there are times that I wish I were there and doing that, but I don’t necessarily know that if I were that guy that I would have had the wherewithal to write the books I have written.  I think I may have gotten comfortable, and you know, God bless.  I am in no way disparaging that because there is a lot to be said for that longevity on a series. I feel like on daytime I have always been kind of a hired guy.  I get brought in, I get let go, I get brought in, I get let go.  I never sort of maintained a sense of terra firma.  I always felt that it was probably going to be temporary, and I’d better figure out what else I’m going to do, which has given me opportunities that I have created to do projects that I am really passionate about like this one.

GH’s Genie Francis Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This past Monday’s episode of General Hospital was one of the series best installmnets in recent months filled with long awaited confrontations and reveals.

The cast at the epicenter of it which included the talents of: James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Cynthia Watros (Nina), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava) all had stellar moments.

Courtesy/ABC

However, there is nothing like getting to see the icon herself, Genie Francis (Laura), do what she does best; the momma bear who is at once shocked and overjoyed that the son she grieved for over three years was very much alive, and the flip side of the anger over the fact that he let her, his sister, and most importantly his son, Spencer, continue to believe that he was dead, all for his vendetta and quest for revenge against Valentin Cassadine.

For it was Valentin who was the man who shot him and now is no longer the heir apparent to the Cassadine throne, now that the codicil said that it all belongs to Nikolas and Valentin was Helena’s son, not Mikkos’.

The thing of it is, everyone is great when Francis does her performances, and you could see that in the work of soap newcomer, Coloma, who you could just see through his eyes the disappointment and despair he caused his mother all these years, by Francis’ mesmerizing delivery.

Beat after beat in that episode, Genie brought the fire, the sorrow, and the wisdom, as Laura to every moment.  It was also well-written that Laura did not just have a happy reunion with her son, but a complex one fraught with issues to be ironed out.

Then, in the punctuation of that episode, was there anything better than watching Laura’s jaw-drop when Ava struts in telling Nikolas it’s time to tie-the-knot?

That is why Michael Fairman TV names Genie Francis “The Power Performance of the Week”.

Let us know in the comment section below, if you enjoyed Genie’s performances as much as we did.
