The episodes are written months before they film. Depending on how involved the character is in an ongoing plot determines if they can be written out. When they first returned from COVID, Amanda Setton announced she would be taking a break due to her pregnancy. Brook Lynn was crucial to the Nurses Ball/Wiley kidnapping, so a recast was needed. The Cyrus storyline was still simmering, so Laura wasn’t critical at that point. The show was able to write around her absence. As Taggert is likely needed to advance the Cyrus story now, a recast is needed until Real Andrews can… Read more »

I wonder what’s really going on behind the scenes. I was thrilled when he came back then he was off screen so long and now a recast. Very odd.

This is a very nice and realistic couple match. The new Taggart matches the family with Trina and Porches. He is very hot.!!!! The former looks old for the role like he could be her grandfather. I hope they keep this character. HE IS A KEEPER IN MY BOOK!!!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
