GH's Blockbuster Summer Promo from ABC – Romance, Revenge & Revelations! – Watch the Video!


Things heat up this summer on General Hospital as the lone ABC soap tries to get itself set for its new September time slot when it moves into the hour the used to be held by One Life to Live.  

In the ABC Summer Blockbuster promo, there looks to be plenty of romance, plenty of revenge, and some startling revelations!

In the romance department, there is Heather’s fixation with Luke, (if you call that romance!),  Starr and Michael, Todd and Blair ( with Kassie DePaiva returns!).  Then comes revenge department with Heather yielding a syringe and John and Sonny having a confrontation, and last the revelation department with Todd finding out it was Jason’s kid who he switched with Tea, the identify of who Trey really is, and Johnny admitting, “I’m guilty alright!”  But then at the end of the promo, comes Patrick seeing Robin!

Now with all the quick intercuts and edits, there is more to decipher and more going on.  See if you can weigh-in and let us know what you think is going to happen the rest of this summer on GH?   Watch the promo after the jump and follow along!

        DITTO! Their chemistry is undeniable. It’s still there from the Port Charles days of Caleb and Livvie. Hope the writers pull out all the stops and let them sizzle! I say let Liz have Jason. I always liked those two together. The way the story is unfolding, looks like Liz still has a thing for Jason. Not even the good doctor Keanan with his charm and MD after his name can take her mind off of Jason.

    heard that Olivia is being killed off, hope it aint true, not a fan of all these murder storylines.

      Really? I hope not, shes one of my favorites. I’m Not liking all the murders either.

        I do like Olivia, but could this be a “storyline dictated” murder plot trade off to have Heather ? Looks like a great storyline for Heather… and think that Olivia would /will give a remarkable fight before losing out to Heather.

    • Tali Smith

      July 14, 2012 at 10:35 am

      Hope Olivia stays – really like her!

    Todd and Blair!!!!! I can’t wait.

    • Judith Sekscenski

      July 14, 2012 at 12:55 pm

      Actually, as much as I always rooted for Todd and Blair, I’m thinking a Todd and Carly hook-up would work well. Does anyone else agree? Your thoughts guys?

      • Alley

        July 14, 2012 at 6:52 pm

        That wouldn’t work for me. Except for one time with Tea which he immediately regretted, Todd has only wanted and been with one woman, and that is Blair. If he hooked up with anyone else, the character Roger worked so hard to create would be compromised. Roger left OLTL a few times when they tried to make him some sort of romantic hero, and both he and Susan Haskell balked when the TBTB wanted Todd and Marty, the woman he raped, to have a relationship. As for Carly and Todd? I wouldn’t not want to see that and if it happens, I won’t watch.

        always like todd & blair, but i’ll watch him no matter who he ends up with!

    The Robin scene is Patrick hallucinating from the meds he is getting hooked on I think!!

    • barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1

      July 14, 2012 at 8:33 am

      I think so to, Would be so nice if Robin could come home.

      • Judith Sekscenski

        July 14, 2012 at 12:56 pm

        You guys could be right. I’m hoping that Robin does come back and we find out who’s behind her disappearance. Helena perhaps?????

      • Christy

        July 20, 2012 at 2:13 pm

        Hey Barbara T… I just read that GH is currently casting for a blonde, blue eyed little girl, in the 3-4 year old age range…. Do you think that is Hope???? I heard some old family faces were going to show up (again) I don’t know if they meant that forger, or Robin, or what. What do you think?

    • Christy

      July 16, 2012 at 2:32 pm

      I figure so as well… maybe she’ll tell him to knock off the drugs!

      • barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1

        July 20, 2012 at 2:47 pm

        It would be nice if Hope is alive, I know the One life to live fans are not happy about her death or Coles. I have no clue about the old family faces maybe the quartermaines that would be nice to spend time with them, They still are being ignored, their not on enough. I have no idea, cant wait to find out more.

    John belongs with Natalie! They barely got back together before OLTL ended, and they deserve to be happy for a while, especially since John has a beautiful baby son with her! It would be too heart-breaking for me if John moved on so quickly!

    • Tali Smith

      July 14, 2012 at 10:37 am

      That’s exactly my feelings and I want that little red headed girl that we were always teased with to be a part of the family also!

      • barbara t. Loves one life to live # 1

        July 14, 2012 at 11:40 am

        I agree with you Tali, I would also like to see john and Natalie have that little girl with the red hair, I never forgot that, and when Nat was pregnant I though she would have a girl and she didn’t, hopefully that will happen when General hospital goes to landview in the future or better yet when we get One life to live back.

    I’m assuming Jason Thompson is playing Patrick right (as you can tell, I don’t watch GH)? If so, wasn’t he supposed to leave the show and do some other projects? I did read that he was stepping away from GH to go some other stuff.

    • Christy

      July 16, 2012 at 2:36 pm

      the actor who played his brother Matt was going to leave for projects, then they just had his character go off to prison, so he’s off the show completely.

      hadn’t heard about jason leaving tho.

  11. Ray

    July 14, 2012 at 4:31 pm

    Robin I doubt is back so soon. Like someone said, Patrick is hallucinating or something. Also like McBam. Jason is boring WITH Sam. Also, some fan favs coming back I heard. Frisco? Duke? Can only hope..

    July 16, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    love the new promo! more todd, please! 😉

    • Christy

      July 16, 2012 at 2:39 pm

      I hope he figures out a way to make things right regarding the baby deal- – without getting himself in trouble. something airtight that will only have heather in trouble!

      laughed when he burst thru the door to fee Luke… dressed like Jason! That is like Jason, from Friday the 13th! that was so funny!

      • Christy

        July 16, 2012 at 2:40 pm

        that should read “burst thru the door to feed Luke”!

    I’m sorry One Life to Live was canceled But I think is best travesty That General Hospital characters are being pushed to the side. No one cares about Star cause if they did One Life to Live would still be on. Do us a favor before we lose General Hospital send them back to Landview and maybe you should have been more concerned about keeping Steve Burton in Port Charles than losing your best actor to The Yong and the Restless…

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
