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.

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.

Hope Olivia stays – really like her!

Todd and Blair!!!!! I can’t wait.

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
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 happens, I won’t watch.

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
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!

Tali Smith

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
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.

Ray

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..

Christy

love the new promo! more todd, please! 😉

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
Christy

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…

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
