GH Promo: A Shocking Reunion, A Mystery Patient, A Legal Battle Heat Up The Summer!

Courtesy/GH

This week on General Hospital, who is the mystery patient next to Carly (Laura Wright) at Ferncliff? Now that Jason (Steve Burton) had been shown the front door thanks to Mary Pat (Patricia Bethune), Carly is going it alone.  Will the mystery patient be an ally, or someone that will throw Carly under the bus, too?

Meanwhile, Franco (Roger Howarth) has been wanting to give Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) a wonderful wedding and has been contacting her relatives, including her sister, Sarah to make it an extra special event for his bride-to-be.

Problem is: Liz hasn’t been too happy about it.  Franco made contact with Sarah via social media, and now someone shows up unexpectedly at Liz’s door, where she looks the person up and down and says, “Oh, my God!”  Is this a new Sarah Webber?  Is it her dad Jeff Webber, or someone else?

And, with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) in her corner as the legal eagle taking on her sexual harassment case against Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva), Kiki (Hayley Erin) feels confident in getting the justice she is seeking.  Only, it looks like Bensch has hired the wily Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) to rep him in court.  Who will ultimately win?

Watch the latest GH promo below.  Then weigh-in: Who is at Liz’s door? Who is the mystery patient? Will Kiki or Bensch win their court battle? Comment below.

The mystery patient is that damn Morgan! Y&R shoves Summer Newman DOWN OUR THROATS SO NOW GH HAS TO BRING BACK ONE OF THE MOST ANNOYING CHARACTERS EVER!

PS: Carly knocking on the cell wall next to hers, its as hollow as a Kardashian brain! Those walls would be made out of solid cement!

Liz’s shocker? Hayden.

I would be so happy if it was Hayden at Elizabeth’s door. That character never should have been taken off the canvas. If it can’t be hayden then i would hope it might be Liz’s dad Jeff. It could give Monica something to do if he were back in town and Monica is still my favorite character on the show after all these years.

Timmm
Guest

Well, if its Hayden, people will bitch because if ABC is paying Ms. Budig, why not Genie Francis? I hope it is Jeff. I to like Monica and would love to see her more on the show. She is connected to a lot of the characters.

Shay

You have that exactly right,, Timmm! Because if the money can be found to bring back a newbie character with limited appeal like Hayden, then it certainly should be available for a beloved legacy player Genie Francis’ Laura. And I will be the first to say so should this actually happen…

I can’t think of any character I’d rather NOT be brought back to GH. Couldn’t stand Hayden. Never saw her as a fit, as Liz’s sister, as Finn’s fiance. Bored the heck out of me. I certainly don’t want her back with Finn; he’s come alive since she left.

What I DO think is that Brad and Lucas are going to get Hayden/Finn’s baby until that is found out and they get the baby ripped from them as they feared.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Rebecca, I didn’t know we saw eye to eye on Hayden. I totally agree. I think the person who is going to be at Lizzy’s door (drum roll please) is Steven Lars, the miniature life size Ken doll (which seems like an oxymoron but works when you think about it). If I am correct then…..YAWN!!!

Roll back that drum, Harry. It wasn’t Steve (or Ken). 😉 Yep; never liked Hayden. Rebecca Budwig is a fine enough actress; just never watched the shows she was on so I’m “not a fan” per se. As for the character, as I said, just bugged me from the beginning and I never took to her. It’s not a “hate” like I feel for Carly, I just didn’t like her. Thought she and Finn were horrible together and I just have no desire to see the character back. It’s obvious, though, that the baby will be, either with her or… Read more »

You know, I was disappointed that it was just Katelyn Jenner. I am all for trans rights and all but damn it, it affords a boring plot twist and it’s been down to death.
I was hoping it would be Sara, or Jeff or Lucky–some character we know and love from the past.
Oh well, welcome to the 90s!

If the patient is Morgan it is either temporary or a recast. Bryan Craig is going to be on Grand Hotel this fall. Which is the GH he was referring to not General Hospital! Either way Sonny and Carly really need a few months off! Need a break!

Maybe, it’s Sarah Brown as Claudia? (Morgan killed her though, right?)

Michael was the one who struck Claudia with a crowbar. That sent him to Pentonville, where he was raped by Franco’s goon.

Um no. Michael as played by Drew Garrett whacked her.

Yes, Phil…..It’s presumably a recast. Thank the gods for that. Hopefully nuMorgan won’t whine.

Yes, CeeCee, that would be a welcome change, but then what other dramatic emotion has this character ever expressed? If he doesn’t whine, what will he do????

Celia

LOL. True that, Shay. What else? Morgan could just stomp his feet, jump up and down and be a brat….cry in mommy’s arms and/or pretend to go to College. Yet, It may not be Morgan, anyway……My sister-in-law had told me he was resurfacing….who knows?? It could be Kevin’s brother…..if you remember, I found it almost impossible for Kevin to have been in two places at once. I may be reading too much into it, but what a story would it make, especially if Laura came back ( as I suggested). Will she be able to tell the difference in bed?…..or… Read more »

You know what would be an absolute hoot??? If Carly’s mystery “neighbor” were AJ!!! That might just put her over the top for real!! As for Laura’s “romantic radar??” Since I have a feeling that Ryan would be the more “exciting” of the twins, perhaps she would simply think that her prolonged absence had a profoundly rejuvenating effect on her husband! Who knows? But I can tell you this much…she never would’ve fallen for Fluke’s nonsense! Laura would have seen right through that inane charade!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh….GOOD ONE, Shay!!!!! Yes, I am shouting ( in my head)….what a brilliant idea. AJ!! Yes!!
OOOOOO—too rich to even contemplate…..I would burst from the irony!!
I like the thought of Laura ( Love my Genie) coming back smack in the midst of all this (melo)drama. Yeah….I guess she would see right through the ‘mise en scene’!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

Thank you, CeeCee! Even though that particular return is probably a pipe dream that we’ll never see fulfilled in this lifetime, it is an intriguing thought. Actually, there is a plethora of tempting options for whom is behind “Door Number One!” Despite this latest scenario being rife with dramatic possibilities regarding a number of former GH characters we’d love to see resurface in Port Charles, I will maintain my skepticism that this person’s identity shall end up being a wonderful surprise when ultimately revealed…although it would be nice if my suspicions proved to the contrary….for once!

Satan
Guest

At this point, I’d actually let AJ out of Hell again, because I don’t like the way he was written out, just because ReRon had a temper tantrum and made it personal in the sloppy writing. I especially don’t like the way that Ava’s $1.98 WalMart gun jammed up, and then unjams the minute Sonny picke it up, allowing the Sonny haters to claim Sonny “killed him in cold blood” which was far from the truth. Even if Sonny had fired the gun intentionally, it would have been because he believed AJ had killed Connie Falconeri, because of what Connie… Read more »

Shay, that is a fabulous idea which is probably why it won’t happen.

AJ had crossed my mind, too, Harry. But I think that’s too much of a stretch to hope for. One would think Carly would see him in a vision due to her guilty conscience; you know, realizing that she accused him of pushing her like Nell accused Carly. But, we know Carly doesn’t do guilt so that won’t happen. Imagine the tangled web they’d weave with Jason, AJ, Franco and Drew. And WHY doesn’t anyone mention that Franco is Drew and Jason’s cousin!!!!! (Therefore a blood tie to Lil Jake, too, who he’s so close to!) And while I’m at… Read more »

Why would Scott take Bensch’s case? Would he risk angering his son and gal pal? The speculation is the mystery patient is actually Kevin and Ryan has been impersonating him. I could possibly see the patient being Ryan, but how would they do this story without Laura? If it is Ryan, then Felicia would have to play a part, as he was obsessed with her back in the day. Just don’t turn Kevin into a bad guy. Whomever is at Elizabeth’s door is a well-guarded secret as no casting news has leaked out. I’ve given up on a Jeff recast.… Read more »

You raise a valid question about Scotty defending Dr. Pervy…..

On the other horn, Scott IS just the kind of sleazebag (and I mean that as a compliment, since he’s good at it) that he actually would conspire with both Ava & Frodd to pose as Bench’s lawyer and set him up for a big fall.

As long as he gets paid in advance, of course…..

I love Scotty. He’s such an ambulance chaser and Kin brings much needed comedic value to the show.

Its just kind of hard to buy 25 years of revisionist history and character assassination. With no explanation. Scott changed when Dominique died. I wish the high paid writers who SHOULD track continuity actually do it.

DMR—I love Scotty too. He reminds me of Saul from Better Call Saul. He cracks me up with his wacky hair styles and stupid jokes. I also agree with you about Parking Lot Peter. How long do we have to endure this character strapped to a bed as DR O torments him? Why does Frank seem to enjoy seeing his favorite male characters strapped to a bed while wearing ripped shirts which reveal washboard abs? Seems I have seen this movie before. Once he is released, get ready for character redemption 101–something the GH EP and writers seems to really… Read more »

I say the mystery patient is Laura (Hey! Sorry, but I still want her back even if the groans sound like a man’s) or Kevin. The guy posing as Kevin is his evil twin…was it Ryan?…Why in the world would Scotty rep Dr. Bensch? Ugh! Hope Alexis and Kiki mop the floor with Bensch….Who needs a new love interest? Because whomever needs one will determine the sex and character Elizabeth greets at her door. I don’t know much of her family history, but have heard the most about her dad; so that would be cool.

Good one, Jovin. Lucifer was one of God’s favorite Angels. Lucifer= Light ( Italian–LUCE) . He was so beautiful, he emanated light…..
Lucifer was banished because he had been a naughty boy….was cursed and renamed Beelzebub, Satan, Dragon, Devil, Mephistopheles etc.

Laura what dumb dope.. ”is that morse code?” she asks.. Everyone with a working brain knows the knows the knocks were an SOS signal. And- whomever it is will be another nutter ahaa! Dr. Bensch and Kikki are stale, for a sexual abuse story, it has been empty, completely empty. A huge fail. Whoever is at Liz’s door will be a long-lost relative. however- I can only hope it will be a man to take Liz out of Franco’s life. I want Franco back! Liz has damned near killed the Franco character by turning him into a hubby/father type character.… Read more »

Su, I agree with you. I have never “got” the fandom about Elizabeth. I have always found her to be boring. & I didn’t watch during #Liason, so I don’t “get” that either.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Ok, then, su….you just made up my mind for me. It can’t be Morgan….hmmmm. He’s not smart enough to know the difference between SOS Morse code, and knock-knock-who’s there!?…. Like mother like son?….unless, wherever he’s been was on a ship?
Must be someone with a more sofisticated brain. There’s a big difference between cunning and brainy….yet, the combination is combustible.
Not Carly . Not Morgan.
Watch Morgan prove me wrong!

Shay
Guest
Shay

Excellent point, CeeCeeGirl! Lol…Morgan totally lacks the smarts to even find his way out of a paper bag, let alone signal an SOS via Morse Code in order to escape a Ferncliff incarceration…This has to be someone with at least a modicum of brains! Soooo….definitely NOT Morgan!

Harry
Guest
Harry

Celia, I am so hoping it is Kevin and Ryan switched places with him. Yeah, I know, I know, Ryan died on a merry-go-round which caught on fire but you know how those things go on soaps. Jon Lindstrom is an absolutely brilliant actor and he’s not used enough. If we see “Kevin” in a scene with Felicia soon, we will know that is really Ryan. Ryan, as you probably know, was obsessed with Felicia.

Celia

I agree, Harry….I did not ‘know’ Ryan, but I love the actor. Jon is supreme!! LOL…..I would love to see more of him, even if it means dealing with psycho Ryan.

Ryan was a brilliantly drawn and played sociopath and he was absolutely chilling. Look up Ryan and Kevin on Youtube.

The mystery person at the hospital is Luke who will save Carly…Terry is at Sarah’s door!!!

Maybe it’s Lucky!!!! Jonathan Jackson, of course…for a short visit. Elizabeth’s first flame. Maybe, Lucky has something to say about the soon-to-be nuptials with Franco. Wishful thinking,I know… but it would great if the show wasn’t so predictable and actually bringing back a Webber. If it turned out to be Lucky that would be a great twist. The look on Rebecca’s face tells me it’s a man. Jonathan Jackson, please!!!

If Elizabeth’s briefl phone call on Wednesday was a clue, she said “it was someone I thought I’d never hear from again”. If this is the same person, Rachel/Hayden is a possibility. Since Steven Lars was carted off to prison, that could work.

Imagine Steven Lars realizing his sister and brother are getting married.

Yes, Mary….I may have been wrong, but that’s exactly what I felt/saw when Alexis visited Kevin for her therapy consultation the first time, and I said so to Shay.
I think that would create the most compelling plot. But, true to the soap gods’ form, it could be anyone.

I think the mystery patient is Spinelli. Since that ridiculous escapade with Sam in Switzerland, he’s suddenly the man of a thousand faces (apologies to Lon Chaney). This story has gone waaayyy too long; now Nelle will turn on Josslyn and blah, blah. Let’s move it along! I like Elizabeth but not intrigued yet with her “surprise” story. The Kiki story could be good, if handled intelligently. It’s a hot, and necessary, topic that needs exploration and just renderings. People in power that take advantage of others need to be brought down and this unctuous doctor is prime for a… Read more »

Nancy Grahn is very outspoken politically. If they allow her to have any input, the story will be handled intelligently; Nancy’s completely about justice. HOW they handle it though is the question. If Kiki and Francesca win, it’s a “metoo” victory. If they don’t, it’ll exemplify how difficult it can be when up against powerful people with influence.

Store-wise, Kiki’s night with Griffin will probably be exposed which could ruin the case, Griffin’s standing and Ava will go beserk.

Oh rebecca1, I can barely tolerate wimpy Griff anymore. That same worried/afraid look on that beautiful face day after day is such a waste! And the overnighter with Kiki is unforgivable.

Hi, Soaphound (I must confess I always have the urge to just call you “soap”, but I resist. Not easy though… ) 🙂 Not sure if I mentioned this before but I’ve seen Matt Cohen on other shows and he’s such a good actor. Also watched a clip (I think on Youtube) just for the heck of it at one of those soap conventions they have. I think he and Laura Wright were hosting it. And, I’ve also watched some home videos he took of his gorgeous son (the kid is exquisite!) and Matt is brimming over with personality. He… Read more »

We all know Kiki’s going to turn up pregnant, right? I saw that coming from 666 miles away the moment she hooked up with the former Right Reverend Father Griffin.

And she’ll probably tell her mom that it’s Dr. Pervy’s kid. Not that they ever actually had sex, but who’s going to believe Dr. Pervy at this point??

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Doubt it, Satan. No way would she imply she was pregnant by Bensch. That’s when it’ll get interesting though; either the truth (that Griffin and Kiki slept together) will come out at the trial or maybe you’re right, Kiki will be pregnant by Griffin. That’ll probably be the tide that washes away Ava’s newfound right track and steers her down the wrong one again.

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL. Spinelli? He is a bunch of little thorns in my side, as his name suggests. I can’t watch that guy….creepy.
I am looking forward to savoring the satisfaction of watching Bensch’s feet held to the fire. Kiki and Francesca may not be the only two….perhaps more will step up.

Harry
Guest

Celia, for some reason your post about Spinelli really made me laugh aloud. Rebecca–Griffin’s character has been ruined. There’s nothing worse than a person who is always in a state of moral indignation and yet can’t keep his grubby hands off another man’s wife or his girl friend’s daughter. Yes, he says 100 Hail Marys and all is forgiven. I say, Hail Satan (no offense to you, Satan).

Oooohhh, yeah, Harry, right? …. ……I can’t figure Griffy out myself. TPTB haven’t really given him a tangible core. Man of the cloth? Lover? Sinner? Referee? Sonny’s confessor? Archie Bunker? I did comment on that fateful, deliciously sinful night of pleasure with Kiki. He marked her with indelible ink, Harry. I mentioned she would, indubitably, sprout a seedling. I had, also, mentioned that this ‘willingly’ unexpected, fruit of Griff’s loins may not be the thing……will it go against her case? It could be argued that Kiki is in the habit of sleeping with the medical staff. Nonetheless, there seems to… Read more »

Griffin was never the squeaky clean priest which is why he ultimately left “his calling.” Remember he cheated with Nathan’s wife, Claudette. It’s a shame they don’t dig deeper into Griffin’s psyche. There’s a real interesting story there if they choose to tell it. Who was his mother, how was he raised, why did he become a priest, his conflict over Duke’s involvement with the mob. Why does he make the choices he makes…great-looking guy, a doctor, could have a stable relationship and yet he’s slept with another man’s wife, his girlfriend’s daughter (his “girlfriend” who happens to be a… Read more »

However- there is a casting call for some that very well could be Morgans recast.
I’d guess- whoever is in the next cell is someone already with GH that we know.
And that gives us a couple to chose from.

I have always liked the character of Elizabeth. I think that her character’s benevolence is not a liability. In real life, there are good people. That doesn’t make them automatically boring… That population should be represented in soaps, too. Not every character needs to be villainous, duplicitous, mischievous.

But here’s the main reason I am invested in her character: she is the only true link to Steve and Audrey Hardy (as Steve’s granddaughter). Even though we don’t get to see Rachel Ames as Audrey, Elizabeth sometimes mentions her, keeping this iconic GH family alive.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

Photo: YouTube

On One Life to Live, Arlene mixed it up with Phillip Carey’s Asa Buchanan and Jeremy Slate’s Chuck Wilson.  Dahl is also well-known as one of the regular panelists on the game show, What’s My Line?

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

 

Photo: JPI

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.
