So you think General Hospital’s Sonny and Brenda can finally seal the deal and make it to the altar and say their, “I do’s?”  Well, according to the man who pulls the creative strings in Port Charles, head writer, Bob Guza, viewers are in for some unexpected twist and turns, as he revealed to TV Guide.

Guza assures TVG that vows will be exchanged.  But according to his conversation that doesn’t mean those looming threats won’t get carried out.  The scribe explained, “Carly has the ammunition and the wherewithal to blow Brenda out of the water and she will use it. She will blow the secret, but not in the way you expect her to. And the Balkan is also going to make his move to grab Brenda. Something very, very big is going to occur that will turn our canvas upside down. What you think will happen is not what you get.”

Turns out the wedding and the events surrounding it, and the aftermath, will play out for six days, starting on the February 18th episode in which Guza says will be “epic”.   In addition, Guza teases that the return of “Franco” played by Oscar Nominee, James Franco could figure into this story.  On-Air On-Soaps also heard that Franco was on the set of GH today taping scenes for his upcoming appearances to air the Friday before the Academy Awards and the Monday following.

So, what do you think will happen at the wedding, and post-wedding.  Will the fated couple even make it to the honeymoon?  Stay tuned.

Wow. Not about a word about the characters who actually work inside the hospital — as in General Hospital. I know that Luke and Laura’s escapades took us out of the hospital, but now the show is turned into a bargain basement version of Goodfellas and the Hospital is a third rate prop. Shame on Guza for ruining what was once an American institution.

This show is getting so contrived. I don’t think that Sonny will get married, unles there is a fake minister or something. Carly maybe will not tell Sonny about Brenda and Dante. It’s enough already with the Balkan. I hope he will be exposed shortly. Also , Lisa is too darn conniving and dragging the new doctor from her past to join her plot of wooing Robin and away from Patrick. I don’t want to see Rebecca Herbst leave, either. What the heck is happening over at GH?

Im excited as well! mostly to get this bulkin storry over and on to the breakout stories instead of the brenda show. Also Ithink these people that think this is no longer about general hospital, you really cant have a whole show about a hospital. Times change and I think its a real good mix. The Mob/goodfellas in my opinion make things interesting and fun to watch. I think and from what I read the limo blows up so the question is, whos in it? I also herd that Brendas character goes missing for a while (think Venessa taking time… Read more »

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.
