courtesy/ABC

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.

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.

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

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… Read more »

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

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

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

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

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!

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!

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

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.

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..

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!

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…

Brown has appeared in numerous primetime television shows and motion pictures over the last few decades.

Now the question becomes, who will Kimberly play on GH? Share your theories via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
