This week on General Hospital, it’s showdown time between Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Kim (Tamara Braun) over Julian William deVry).  Kim has been assuming the Alexis is the woman Julian slept with after he saw her kissing Drew (Billy Miller) on New Year’s Eve.

Even though Alexis denies it, Kim sees the exes lingering feelings for each other, every time she is the room with the both of them.  How will these two resolve this?  Will Alexis reunite with Julian?  Will Kim and Julian be able to overcome their trust issues?

Then, it’s election day in Port Charles!  Will Laura (Genie Francis) finally be voted-in as mayor of the town without tampering of the ballot box this time?  With serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) on the loose, could he do something to one of the candidates Laura, or Ned (Wally Kurth), or even Ned’s wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) to influence the outcome?

Sam (Kelly Monaco) continues her growing concern over Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) becoming part of the “cult” group led by Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin).  Will all roads lead back to Sam’s past with this story?

Check out the “New Year, New Drama” promo for GH below; then these additional teasers:

Lets get this baby swap out in the open. Brad is way too comfortable, no guilt. no shame & the show is aging Wylie way too fast. I thought it was so unfair for GH to let Michael spend Christmas without his son & GH isnt making it any easier for his unsuspecting adopted father. Its paat time but as usual this show milks stories until they become almost an afterthought. Also starting all these new stories while keeping this one open just hanging in the background. This is how shows loose veiwers.

I am really getting interested in this Shiloh, only because Sam and Jason think they have it all figured out. Too easy and too quick. I’ve been reading that he may be someone who raped Willow, and ultimately is her dead baby’s father. I also read that Drew is not Oscar’s real dad, so putting two and two together, I am thinking that maybe he is Oscar’s bio dad. I just don’t know why if they are going to kill this poor kid off, why they would go that route. Will have to wait and see.

I think Franco is going to find out that Ryan is the killer and Ava is going to finish him off. As far as the baby switch. That’s going to come to a halt pretty soon Lucas will leave that idiot he’s with

Please don’t put Jax and Carly back together again. Stop going backwards! Carly loves Sonny the bad boy and always will. Jax’s likes to keep Carly on the boring straight and narrow. If you must go backwards put him with his first wife Alexis Davis or move forward with DA Margaux she needs a man in her life. Please let’s breakaway from going backwards when in the end she will end up with the bad boy Sonny as it should be.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
