GH's EP Frank Valentini On If Griffin Will Finally Get A Love Interest: "YES … And You'll NEVER Guess Who!"

General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini, participated on Tuesday in his first ever “#AskGH on social media, where fans of the series ask questions and get real-time answers from one of the cast, or behind the scened personnel of the ABC daytime drama series.

During Valentini’s #AskGH he fielded several questions, but one in particular had fans intrigued when the EP was asked: “Will Griffin be getting a love interest in the near future? Matt Cohen is so talented & handsome #AskGH #GriLiz”

To which, the EP answered: @Julie_foxy @mattcohen4real YES! … and you’ll NEVER guess who! #GH #AskGH”

For some time now since the release of GH’s sexy winter promo – which has Griffin in the forefront of the shot and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) behind him – speculation has run wild that Griffin might be a new love in Liz’s life.  Could Valentini be talking about Liz … or someone else on the canvas who will catch the eye of Dr. Munro ?  If it isn’t Liz, who might it be?

Let us know in the comment section below, who do you hope Griffin will be romantically involved with on GH?

Lucas. (Bet no one guessed him,)

Hmmm…sounds hot!

I thought when Griffen walked into apply for a job and met up with Lucus, I felt the chemistry they had….

OMG how hot would that be!

I don’t think Griffin is gay. I did not get that vibe. I’m pretty sure he likes girls. But, one never knows.

Griffin was in love with Claudette and very attracted to Maxie. He’s not gay.

CeeCee…Matt Cohen is fantastic! I’ve seen him on videos…his baby son…precious!!!…Matt’s personality is so much more vibrant than his on-screen character. He’s hilarious, deep, intelligent, perceptive…personable…looks AND personality. Oh, and he’s not as “soft” featured in that delicate way he comes across on GH. His hair is long, swept back, he’s got a little 5’oclock shadow…or he wears a cool knit cap…

He’s been in How To Get Away With Murder, Supernatural and now in the spin-off Criminal Mind show.

Believe it or not…he was thinking about going into boxing…and it’s a favorite pasttime of his (in addition to building things…he was a contractor during college.)

Funny and a tribute to an actor’s ability, to come off so “mellow” and almost meekish when in reality there’s a very strong, vibrant personality in the actor.

Just thought, in case you didn’t know much about him, that you’d be interested. I know you’re a fan of his as I am.

Ewwww.

What a rude response!

Any man would do!

Griffin and Lucas I would’ve bought it, definitely would’ve been more interesting than being a doctor/priest in love with some side character that no one ever wants to see again. His relationships with women seemed kind of forced to me, in particular Claudette and Maxie for a hot minute, abandoned for some reason, maybe because they couldn’t make it plausible. Griffin/Liz I can see because Liz has chemistry with an empty candy wrapper, so all of her pairings work, even when she’s dating two at the same time! So maybe Griffin can finally become as interesting as he should be., other than his looks.

He is not gay!

That’s what my ex wife used to say about my boyfriend!

I do believe you are right about this one, Timmm…Griffin really doesn’t “ping” for me on that level, either…especially when you consider his overwhelming passion for Claudette! Had he preferred men, he could have just as easily remained hidden behind the “cover of his cassock”—figuratively speaking—and secretly explored his sexuality if his proclivities were of that variety, yet he totally risked–and lost—his chosen vocation for the out-of-control love he possessed for a woman. I think that says it all despite the desired wish-fulfillment expressed by some here.

my guess is either Anna or Olivia J.

Is it not going to turn out that Griffin is Anna’s son?

Well, it would certainly seem so, Rhonda…then again, we were so convinced that there would be these great denouements regarding the true parentage of Kiki, Nathan, Brad, Nelle, etc., etc., etc, and we are either still waiting for or have been left terribly disappointed by the supposed outcomes of those wholly expected announcements, so I’m no longer holding my breath for Anna to be revealed as Griffin’s mother. At this point, I’m not even wanting that to happen anymore, because I do see such beautiful romantic possibilities for these two incredible people…chemistry is such a rare thing for GH couples these days, so if they can make it work between these characters, then I say go for it.

I was thinking Anna. How gross. And, I’m not talking about age difference here. I am talking about the fact that he could be her son or step-son.
By the same token, Olivia’s voodoo, black magic, witchcraft; whatever, worked ? In that case, Dukes’s essence, embodied in Griffin, has a choice to make…what to do, oh, what to do. Anna or Olivia? DOUBLE LOL.

Anna has been talking about the baby she miscarried after Olivia rigged the hospital elevator. That occurred about 27 years ago. The baby she “miscarried” very well could turn out to be Griffin. There have been so many bread crumbs leading up to this great reveal.

@Rhonda.
It sure seems to point in that direction, Rhonda. I didn’t know Anna had a presumed miscarriage with Duke’s baby. I was only aware of her losing Leora ( David’s baby with Anna), soon after birth.

Hey, CeeCee, that was moi who referred to “The Sonny and Carly Show!” I remember dedicating an entire post to all the alternative Sonny-centric titles I could propose for GH….Alas, I do believe it was moderated, but I can recall that two favorites were “The Sonny Also Rises,” and “It’s Always Sonny in Port Charles.” Oh, and of course, “Everybody Loves Sonny.” You get the idea….LOL!

Even though it has been campy, absurd, and over the top…..it is roping in GH vets, and mining history with awesome flashbacks. And ANY episode that does NOT feature Sonny or Carly gets a gold star from me! It is shocking how much I actually enjoy this show when they are not on screen! It is awesome to see Laura involved in story…ANY story! Great to see Nora….how about a Ladies who Lunch episode…..with all the mature women…Diane, Alexis, Tracy, Laura, Monica. I cannot be a card carrying fan of this show until the stain of Sonny Corinthos is gone from the show forever.

I sooo agree with you, Jenny. I am enjoying the show much more sans so much Sonny and Carly.
As someone called it, “The Sonny and Carly Show”.
But, sometimes I am so lost when the vets come on, or when ‘old’ storylines are revisited.
For example, I thought the custody hearing was a sham; a farce.
Didn’t Valentin steal the embryo? That’s kidnapping in itself. The fact that Lulu had no idea her embryo ( which she thought had perished in that explosion?) was in someone else’s grasp, should have been enough to take Charlotte away. Why was that not brought up?
Well, I still think Valentin is Stavros in Valentin mask-mode. LOL.
And, Nina has something up her sleeve. I am almost positive. It’s possible she’ll take Valentin to court for full custody, herself. LOL.

Thanks Celia!! And seriously……WHY is no one mentioning what NINA did to Ava??? Drugged her….forced her to deliver a baby, and then kidnapped her??How awesome would it have been to see Diane call in a witness…and Ava comes sauntering in? If that helped get Dante and Lulu custody…then sonny would owe Ava!! Not to mention that Nina was in a coma for 20 years and has Mental problems and NO clue how to raise a child!! Courts on soaps are farces and ridiculously one sided! Could Lulu have a story that does not involve an embryo and a custody fight??

I agree with all of that, love your Ladies who lunch idea, because the ladies are the strongest on this show, especially the ones you mentioned. I can’t stand Sonny and Carly, especially together, as a matter of fact, I can’t stand their family either. All that damn whining about Morgan when all they did was coddle him and inadvertently allow what happen to him. Sonny was dead to me after he killed A.J.

You are right, Jenny. Given Nina’s mental history ( albeit recoved), Diane should have brought that into question.
This is exactly what Allan, Shay, Steve and I were talking about. Too many allowances are made for the sake of convenience. You know…”It’s a soap”, and we should not question the writing.
I must confess, though…I am one of the few who is a true Michelle Stafford fan; so, I’m kind of soft on her…I can forgive. LOL
Later.

I really like Anna & Griffin together! I know, I know, Duke’s son and all but this would be a great story; Anna & Griffin’s guilt for falling in love. I’d go for it!

I like this idea. Anna and Griffin already have a very emotional connection.

Totally, hope they try it!

Watch it be evil Nelle

I’m thinking their going to write Griffin as Anna and Dukes son…that Olivia stole. They did it on AMC with Erika’s aborted son..

Yes, Yes, YES, Ces! I’ve long suggested that these two would make a spectacular couple…there is something so timeless and ageless about their connection, which was almost instantaneous when first they met….it’s a true, proper love. And given that Anna is a woman who seems far more youthful than her actual years, this pairing doesn’t inspire the same sort of pause (okay, revulsion….) that I get every time Julian and Alexis go at it with the horizontal rumpy-pumpy.

I can see that, my Shay. Age aside, they do have a connection. Nonetheless, this connection may be due to that mystifying bond between mother and child. Perhaps that is what we saw/sensed.
A good example is Lulu’s reaction when she first laid eyes on Charlotte.
Also, even if Griffin is not Anna’s son, there would always be that persistent elephant in the room: Duke. Would Anna’s love for Griffin be confused with her love for Duke? Would Griffin just be a substitute? A very thin line there.

lol on Julian & Alexis, is there an age difference there?
Anyway, Griffin really lights up with Anna and Anna is SO at ease with him. I think they have this combustive chemistry that is under the surface and needs to be tapped into. I really hope he doesn’t turn out to be Anna’s son because they have chemistry and Anna needs a love interest already.
I think there are so many levels here that GH can play.
The Anna/Andre (drip) story does not need to be revisited.
Griffin never knew Duke and Anna can fight her feelings for Griffin/Duke … hell, really, does it matter? Duke didn’t know Griffin either so he’s like a new man altogether. GH need to explore this!

I simply loved the elevator scene, today. Finola can bring every moment to life.
I felt the tension ( due to the bomb)….the suspense with Robin. Mother and daughter exchanging agonizingly long stares. Even Billy/Jason stepped up…literally, LOL.
Good show!!

Anna’s going to turn out to be his mother!!!

I agree that they have chemistry, but Anna is most likely his mother.

Oh, Ces…how I agree with you!!!!! I cringe each time I see Andre. He and Anna? So glad that ‘whatever it was’, was nipped in the bud.
Same goes for Jordan. Those two are hard to swallow, for me.
Oh, I think Shay was referring to Nancy Grahn’s age in real life. And, the over-the -top comportment.
I will admit that I truly like Nancy and have come to respect Alexis’ persona, sans Julian. I just do not like him ( not that it matters, LOL)…. I think Alexis can do better. He is just doom and gloom in her life. ….like standing at the edge of a steep, craggy cliff, ready to fall into the abyss.
She is, I think, ten years William’s senior….not that she looks it. I think she looks wonderful.
In the show, Alexis is younger than Julian.
I love the easiness between Anna and Griffin. Yet, I can’t see anything romantic, until everything is cleared up. Is she his mother? It’s weird thinking anything else, at this point.

PS….what well-trained cop goes after a dangerous murderer on her own, without back-up?
I am truly enjoying GH, but these writers need to think before applying ink to paper. They must know we, the viewers, can’t always accept these shortcomings.

Hey, hey Celia! I really hope that Griffin is not Anna’s son; what a waste of a good storyline. She doesn’t need another kid, she needs a lover. There isn’t anyone on the show they can currently pair Griffin with anyway! unless Roger Howarth is leaving, they won’t pair him with Liz anytime soon.
Griffin needs to walk around naked at Anna’s McMansion 🙂 lol….

I really had no clue of the age difference between Alexis & Julian. NLG looks terrific. Ha, I never did like him in this little panties and their sex romps though.. but I like their scenes together when their is tension.
Are you talking about Brilliant Jordan? I’m really surprised Curtis wasn’t around to assist, after all, it was Jason and him doing the investigating on Rudge. Another GH miss.

Thank you, Celia….Yes, I was referring to the oft-discussed discrepancies regarding the supposed ages of Alexis and Julian and how they don’t add up when you compare their storyline vs. the real-life years of their portrayers. However, to further clarify, I was also commenting on their overly-vigorous, adolescent-style acts of carpet-burning copulation that left me wanting to hurl. That is something I cannot imagine with the achingly romantic Anna and the gallant Griffin should they become a couple, provided, of course, that it is first conclusively proved they are NOT mother and son!!!!

Jordan is the WORST cop EVER on TV!

As we know real life age differences have no baring on acting or the relationships people play with one another. And, they shouldn’t. There are always characters in every genre…film, theatre, TV where one actor is older than another yet the opposite is true in the story. Who cares? Who analyzes it like that? Makes no difference. As Ces said, to top it off there’s no discernible difference in Nancy and William. I would never have guessed she was older than him in real life.

Where I do agree is the exaggerated sex life they gave them. And I don’t mean the lust or passion…I just mean it was over acted. I’d actually love to see them get back together and eventually have realistic love scenes…less frenzied. They need to tone down their acting in those scenes so that they don’t come across as farcical.

@Ces….I really appreciate your enthusiasm for the proposed pairing of Anna and Griffin…I can tell you have put a lot of thought into it! (Especially on the part of Griffin…LOL.)

Thank you very much Shay!! Lmao!! Just want our girl to get some lovin’ !!!

Understood, Ces, and you’re welcome! Yes, our “Lady Anna” deserves “some lovin”,” but she also needs a really good man and a stable, substantial relationship…for those of us who have watched her through the years, we know that she tends to lead with her heart and mind when it comes to romantic matters—not just her nether regions, like say, Alexis—so her recently past dalliances, especially with that slimy Sloan, really didn’t ring true for me…it actually utterly appalled and disgusted me in the manner their involvement was written. (And even the Luke fling was not a particularly high note in this character’s experience, although at least they did have some shared emotional history which resulted in their brief alliance….) I harbor much greater expectations for a more upstanding and storybook tale for this classy, sophisticated woman…I hope that this time will be the charm!

I believe he will be involved with Liz ! Griffin is nice guy and he will be great with her boys.

I like that, Sil. Both so gorgeous. Scraggly Franco sticks out like an unwashed, throbbing sore thumb. I love Roger, but please, get Franco out of his misery.

LOL. Poor Franco! He’s a great character and IS great with Liz’s boys. Lil Jake adores him. But, I agree, he’s not at his physical best in this role. He really is such a good-looking guy, but they’ve tried to replicate his Todd look and it doesn’t work here. I love longish hair…I think they should keep it…but they need to let him seem less “slumpish.”

I’m conflicted. I’m a big fan of Franco and Liz. I really do think they have great chemistry; they have a natural rapport and I think the diaglog between them is very realistic. I also like that they’re both artists and if they stay together there could be some really romantic scenes of them sharing a studio and painting together; inspiring each other. They just dropped Liz and her painting…it would bring her back to that passion.

Sigh. On the other hand…Griffin and Liz make such a fine-looking couple!!! And, he’d be so good for her.

Hmph. Dilemma!

I think Griffin will be paired with Anna. I think they have great chemistry and why can’t an older woman like Anna catch the eye of a younger man! They’re both georgeous and would make a great couple

Yes!!

That’s what I’m talking about! They genuinely like each other and look so pretty together plus so far, she’s the only one he’s had chemistry with.

Liz

Won’t be Liz. It’s clear they are invested in Liz and Franco, as the should be, the seriously hit gold with Roger and Becky. But I love MC so hopefully someone good. Ava? Lol

To you and some fans maybe, but not everyone loves them. And couples have an expiration date on soaps.

Carly…

Carly needs to go and come back with a lobotomy. LOL. No; not Carly.

I could see this one too, but not long-term.

I was right!!

I hope it’s Ava.

No, just no, to this maneater….#2.

That’s a good thing, Shay. LOL.

Not when she’s already “consumed” half the men in Port Charles, CeeCeeGirl! About the only suitable dude for Ava at this point is Franco…they truly deserve each other and since nobody in their right mind would want either of them, well, let’s just get them back together to create their own acid-washed version of “Happy Families,” whilst simultaneously putting to paid the truth that Kiki is really his daughter after all. Honestly, that whole Silas paternity thing never worked for me anyway….Oh, and the reason I referred to Ava as “Maneater #2” is because I called Carly “Maneater #1” in the same exact fashion on a previous post, yet the Carly comment didn’t make it online although the Ava one did…Hmmm…what gives????

Double LOL.
Who do you think had more men, Shay? Ava, Carly or Bobbi?
Franco and Ava? Ok. I can say that Franco has overstayed his welcome in the Webber household.
I just feel that Franvo and Lizzie are forced together. Liz was best with Jake. There was, at least, a scintilla of fire there, which is so lacking with Franco, for me.
Kidding aside, I love Ava and Scotty when together. Would a budding romance between them be so bad?

Ooooh….that’s really not a fair question, CeeCeeGirl, given Bobbie was once a, you know, “professional!” Keeping that in mind, I should certainly hope she would garner the “Top Tart” title in that hot-to-trot trio!!! As for first runner-up, that’s a true toss-up! However, my guess would be Ava, simply because she’s a NYC girl, and there’s a much larger pool of fish there, especially on the art/club scene she so favored…Moreover, even though Carly has clearly had more than her share of men, for sure, you do have to take into account that she’s pivoted back to her default “Sonny” setting so many times that it’s considerably cut into her stallion count …just saying! On the subject of Franco, I’d say he’s overstayed his not-so-welcome in Port Charles, period, but it seems he shan’t be going anywhere….even if Liz finally does give him the old heave-ho….So, what women would you propose for his next squeeze, if not Ava???? Who else would even have him? Liesl???? LOL…Lastly, Scotty…I’m sorry, but I just cannot take the dude seriously with anybody….it’s that comical coiffure….and to think I can recall a time when he was actually an in-demand dreamboat with an impressive mop of blond hair!!!

Ooooooooh, I like that idea, Lil’ Angel. If anybody could make Griffin interesting it’s Ava’s…

Ava’s my girl…said it a million times.
She’ll make Griffin come alive; make his head spin!!

I heard Ava was moving back to Oakdale and Franco and Finn are moving back to Allan view and Hayden back to Pine Valley and Jain and Nina back to Genoa City.

Oops Llanview and that’s Jason and Lulu is catching the bus also to Genoa City did I miss anybody?

I will guess Olivia or Robin.

Robin? A pregnant women is going to leave her husband?

Besides, Robin is going to turn out to be his half sister.
What about Nelle?

If Robin were to loose the baby (sad but soapy) i would love for her to be paired with Jason. There is something about Billy’s Jason that comes to life with Robin. The conection should not be ignored. If Robin could come back permanently, this would be a magical pairing

Is Kimberly pregnant in real life?

Celia – yes, Kimberly Mc., is pregnant in real life.

No, if Robin were to stay Patrick would be recasted.

please let it be liz, they look so great together, so thats who gets my vote.

I hope it’s Elizabeth. I love Griffin’s chemistry with her. It’s been there from day one.

Oh maybe Lulu trying to get Charlotte away from Valentine.

I guessed Lulu too.

God, I hope not. I can’t stand the insipid Lulu.

Yes, dmr!!! Besides, Emme is off having a baby.

I like Emme but I don’t like Lulu. I hope Valentin keeps custody of Charlotte!

I will guess Valerie since she is back in show.

How about Amy?? Ha!
Maybe Claudette will be back……could be Valentin erased her memory of what he did to her, having her remember everything else; especially her love for Griffin. It has always been clear, at least to me, that Griffin still has deep feelings for her.

As I suspected, KM is pregnant.

Send her far away! No offense to the actress…but the whole Valerie character was an unfortunate combination of bad writing, short term vision, and seriously limited acting ability. Nothing about this character has ever worked in any way. Every time she is on screen, it is painfully forced and awkward.

Send Franco away before Valerie!

This is true, Jenny. I still say this show needs a cast-cleaning natural disaster or epidemic to clear the decks of all the deadweight hampering the SSGH!

VERY good guess!

I hope they bring back Brook Lynn Ashton for the Quartermaine family especially Ned Ashton, also to sing on the show again and pair her with Dr. Griffin Munro. They would make a great pairing and if that happens and they get married, Griffin would have an amazing father in law since he doesn’t have Duke Lavery in his life.

Love that!!

Good idea but way too much work for JELLY!

I could go for Valerie and Griffin.

Not really. Valerie was, is, always will be a bust. Just my opinion.

And mine, as well, CeeCeeGirl….GH needs to stop with the habitual hook-ups of convenience and get down to some real old-fashioned relationships based upon out-of-this-world chemistry and mutual attraction, the way soap supercouples used to be created!

So agreed!!
Andre & Valerie should fall in love OFF screen and go bye-bye

Andre is too old for Valerie. Luckily a bunch of Valerie fans hope Brytni stays with the show.

Fabulous idea, Ces!!! Now can we also come up with an exit strategy for that eternal sourpuss, Jordan????

Yes but the writing for her was horrible! AND, I NEVER suggest cheating BUT married to Clulu, one might THINK of straying or hanging himself!

@Timmm.
LOL. poor Lulu. Poor Valerie….

I THINK IT WILL BE NINA……….BUT MUCH RATHER SEE HIM WITH ANNA….

YIKES! Please, for the love of all that is Holy, do not pair him up with that preying mantis!

Ha ha so true! Great characterization!

Excellent comparison, Rhonda! There is something truly insect-like about Nina…or even reptilian! (Which begs the question of why the Roxy-loving Finn didn’t go for her!)

Nina is a pit bull and Griff is a Yorkie!

Another LOL. Keep ’em coming, Timmmy.

Just as long as the love interest isnt Olivia Jerome!!!!

Griffen will be in love with himself or Roxie the Lizard-lol

Jimmy, I thought we had agreed Roxie was really Reiko, Finn’s wife, remember? LOL.

Yes…he had a secret affair with her years ago and they had a baby named Godzilla…lol

Baby Godzilla, LOL.

Nelle

I like that idea, Chris. I have come to really like Nelle, albeit her screwed up head. I think this girl is a good person, just misled and lost.
Griffin would be perfect for her….two lost souls. They are both still searching for something tangible to hold on to….something meaningful after all the disillusionment of life and loved ones….people, in general.

How would they connect? No natural love lines unless Nelle gets hired at GH?

How to connect? Hmmmm……
Nelle has an accident; cutting herself slicing bread for a sandwich.
She ends up in Emergency. Griffin’s eyes lock with hers across the nurses’ station.
Everything and everyone around them disappears….the world stands still….they run ( in slo mo) towards each other….her pony tail swinging this way and that….their fingertips brush in a whisper of a touch…as soft as a flutter of a bird’s wings…..
That’s how, my Timmmbo!!!! Ha!

Monica or epiphany

LOL.

Taking into consideration—
there are near 50ish women who should not be dating their son unless it’s going to be a hot lusty Cougar story..
outside of that- there are only so many younger women for the younger men at age 30-40..
And– there but a few who are younger and unmarried and a couple others who are married..
So– whom ever it will be more than likely will be a yawn and FF ..

Griff needs a New Young hot woman.
Of course , Charlotte’s mom could return ..

Anna is aged at Griffs moms age, so unless she can be tuned into a lusty cougar, they are not going to happen..

To mention;
Anna and Franco have Identical hair styles, yes they share the same hair…
look at them, ahaa factual..

” ….50ish women shoul not be dating their son…..”?
Women should not be dating their sons, PERIOD, su. No ‘unless’ about it. I honestly find a ‘lusty cougar’ affair between mother and son sickening.
I hope that’s not what you meant…just, inadvertently , worded wrong?
Yes, we do think alike in some aspects. I have already posted that Claudette, Griffin’s true love, may come back.

hi Celia 🙂
I meant ‘son’ as a age thing..
He is not Anna’s son.
Anyways, if he was tagged up with Anna it would be a Cougar story ..

LOL. Thank goodness, you cleared that up, su.
So, you don’t agree with most? That Griffin is Anna’s son? I still have misgivings that he’s Duke’s.
I don’t see the resemblance. I think the concept was put in the viewer’s head, thus the mind plays tricks.
Yes, it would make a great cougar story, but even so, I can’t see Anna or Griffin going that route. Anna sees him as Duke’s son, period.

I completely agree, Su & Celia.
When I see Anna with Griffin, I see a mother/son bond. To pair those two together would be so gross and disrespectful to Duke.!

Anna’s mansion is empty and she needs a hot lil lover in there. Why not Griffin? Makes for a great story — their passion but guilt.
What is Anna going to do with another kid? boring.

While Liz and Griffin look great together; they almost look like brother/sister to me…I think Liz and Franco (Becky and Roger) have great chemistry. Their interaction…diaglog…body language is very natural. FINALLY let Liz be loyal. She abandoned several boyfriends…AJ being the last one…as soon as he was in trouble; didn’t believe him when he claimed his innocence. Galled me!!! I LIKE how she’s given Franco the benefit of the doubt several times. So I’d like to see them stay together. (Unless they have plans to make Franco psycho again.)

I’m thinking Claudette will show up. Or, if Nathan (Ryan Paevy) decides to leave GH, Maxie. They had great chemistry, too.

I am thinking Maxie too. I agree with you about Franco and Lizzy.
They’re very sweet together.

I also hope it will be Claudette since Griffin truly loves her.

Oh god please no, we got rid of her, let it go!

ANNA….I think she could b a great “COUGAR”….and why not…they’re chemistry between them and he reminds her of Duke…If it’s Amy….shoot me now!!

I was kidding about Amy. She’ll talk him to death. LOL.

I’m not sold on Liz and Franco at all. But that’s not their fault…it’s the writers yet again trying to find a place for Franco. And fitting a square peg into a round hole. If anything right now I would like him to stumble onto Olivia and out manoeuvre her as only one crazy with experience could do.

But I don’t want to see Liz and Griffin either. Granted they would “look” good together, but their personalities would soon turn them into a boring couple. And anyway, what is it about Liz that she gets a chance with so many guys. The never work out for “sweet” Liz, or vs versa.

But a love interest for Griffin…really not much to pick from..unless Ron and writers might let him carry on Olivia’s “spell” for a while…at which point all bets are off. But please not Anna. And since Robin could be his sister and only in town for a while, not her. So I guess I’ll have to wait to be surprised.

Lets bring in a new a new character.

The never guess who… would seem to refer to Olivia. I would hope it would be Anna.

I don’t like any of the women on GH right now for Griffin. Bring on someone new for him.

My guess is Hayden! Her and Finn seem to be on the rocks and he isn’t trying to hard to kick his Zen Zen addiction! Just my thought!

I never thought of Hayden. Hmmmm. Not a bad idea.

I want her away from Finn!

On the contrary, mia amica….VERY bad idea! Both Hayden and Nina seem to be the kiss of romantic doom for any men they tend to fancy. Perhaps it’s because they go through them like Kleenex in tying to find one who helps to justify their otherwise dubious and precarious places/purposes in Port Charles!

@Shay.
Hey, ma belle,
You make me smile, whether we agree or disagree. I know exactly how you feel about Nina and Hayden. ‘Different Strokes For Different Folks’. Yet, we really like each other, don’t we?
How adult of us, yes? Refreshing!!

Absolutely, it’s a beautiful thing, CeeCeeGirl! Glad I make you smile,…I’ll tell you, you would have been absolutely guffawing if my response to your post ’bout Sonny’s “thang” had made its way online….it wasn’t really naughty, but apparently it didn’t pass muster. Maybe the moderator was of the male persuasion and the subject matter was just too painful to contemplate….Still, it was a bummer, just the same.

@Shay.
Well, Shay, I was kind of surprised seeing my remark posted. I guess it depends on the modertors’ sense of humor. More power to them.

Yeah, I would dump that druggie!

Or could it possibly be Nell or even Maxie!

Felix. (I can wish, right?)

Ewwwwww!

Franco.

Yes, I do want Liz with Griffin it’s time for her to be with a guy who is good and will be a family guy.I like their sparks when they are together where franco has to much bad blood for him to be with iiz.

He should reform Nell and marry her. She needs reforming and he needs a love interest with no romantic pasts

It’s Olivia J for sure. They were meant to be!

While I would prefer Maxie, I fear it will be Nina.

NO! Please not, Nina. That scene chewer chews up every scene and leading man with whom she is contact. Griffin deserves better!

Nina ughhhhhh!

He certainly does, Rhonda! If Anna is not “The One” for him, I hope it is at least Liz…I could picture them together despite the increasingly tarnished nature of Nurse Webber, which I blame solely on the writers. As for Nina, Carly, Hayden, etc……I am so tired of these bed-hopping tarts who change men like underwear….it’s boring and predictable!.

Maybe they are bringing someone over from AMC or OLTL to pair with him, though my money is on Anna. Or Carly.

Love that idea! Kyle maybe? David Vickers finally comes out of the closet. I could even see Dorian come to be a cougar.

Cougar?! LMAO! Dorian’s daughter Cassie would be a cougar now. I don’t know what Dorian would be labelled now…a billy goat?

@Jenny.
LOL, Jenny. What you said just hit me… too funny!!
So, if Cassie is a cougar; what does that make Dorian?

We’ll never guess who because the writers probably don’t know yet either….

lol, very good point!

How funny!

If you’re going to go cougar, go all the away — Audrey!

If they’re sticking in his age group, there’s not a lot of possibilities on the canvas. Lulu and Dante are endgame, Maxie and Nathan are in a holding pattern. Valerie was taken off contract because they couldn’t write for her. Elizabeth is rather obvious, so I guess he’ll be next on the “let’s see if anything sticks with Hayden” game.

could be nelle as she will find a way to remain in PC unless Sonny has her killed.

Well, someone should do a Bobbitt “procedure” on Sonny. Get that thaaang out of circulation.

Do you people watch the show and realize that Anna is Griffin’s stepmom and Robin is his sort-of sister who’s already married happily and not on the show enough to be a love interest?

Yuck.

That’s what I say, JMER. Not that I’m averse to Anna and Griffin, but let’s tie up the loose ends first. Who really are Griffin’s parents? Take it from there.

I agree, JMER! Yuck!!

I mean if you want that, head over to B&B. That’s their specialty! Duke being Griff’s dad is enough for me to veto the idea. Besides, Anna and Griff have the sweetest mom and son scenes ever and I love his bro vibe with Robin. Why ruin that for a quick fling? GH has always been about building families first.

Exactly, JMER! If that is what you are looking for then go watch B&B. You will love that show!

The scenes between Griff and Anna are loving mother-son scenes, and the brother vibe scenes with Robin are great. Like you said Anna is Griffin’s stepmom. Geez

No, that’s not what I want. LOL. The aversion is not for Griffin and Anna. It’s the idea.
There is too much were mystery. Even if Griffin turns out not to be Anna’s son….the fact that he is her ex’s son is kind of puky.
And, as I said, neither would go for it. But, the writers would.
I am never into sharing, or making the rounds between the sheets…you know ? Taking turns.
It’s the same people going around, playing musical beds. They run out of characters.

Exactly, Celia.

Like JMER & you have pointed out the fact that Duke is Griff’s dad is puky! I love both Finola and Matt, who are 57 and 31, respectively. Anna would never betray her love for Duke – she has too much integrity – to sleep with his son. She is NOT desperate, she can get plenty of men closer to her own age! LOL!

Hayden that’s who it’s understated but it’s there and I like. Hayden

Me too with him. Finn and Hayden have faded!

I think if he was with Liz it would be boring. They are both too good.
Maybe Hayden or someone new. Possibly Claudette isn’t dead and even if she is they could bring her back. The ex-priest with the horrible Claudette.

Liz and Franco do not work for me on any level!!

Hayden

I want Griffin and Elizabeth. I’ve loved Matt Cohen and Rebecca Herbst’s chemistry since Cohen started appearing on the show. I was already a fan of both performers before Cohen appeared and I think Griffin and Elizabeth would be fabulous together. A doctor and nurse, two characters with complex pasts, already existing chemistry…it’s just waiting to be written.

I got that feeling, too, Jen….and then, there’s Franco. Sweet at first….but, it seems to me that Lizzie has four sons, now. I find Franco to be needy and insecure.

How about something really novel and let the priest stay a priest– he ends up with God.

Hey, Mary,
Only in soaps, my dear lady, only in soaps…..in the real world, “Father” Griffin can never go back to the priesthood. As I said, he is a priest in name only, for “stepping” out; unless canon law is re-written.

In the real world he would still be a priest, Holy Orders cannot be undone– in God’s eyes he is a priest forever. But a priest can ask to be let out of practicing or they can be forced from practicing under certain circumstances.

When the character first came on the show, he said he was taking a leave of absence, which is different than formally asking Rome to release him from him from his vocation, which can take years — nor is a leave of absence the same as being “fired” for stepping out.

Priest do not automatically get defrocked for having sex– if they try to get marry they will be– if they live openly in a sexual relationship they will be– but for being weak and having a fling– no. If every priest whoever had sex was removed from practicing they would be even less priests than there are.

It is part of Church teaching that celibacy for anyone is an ongoing work, which means they expect priests to slip up now and then– so technically if Griffin was a real priest, if he wanted to go back he could.

But the show has made it seemed it was his choice not to practice his vocation because he felt unworthy of it because his sin, sleeping with a married woman, caused so much pain to all involved and he ended up being shot for it. But like you said it is a soap so they don’t bother with details like if he really wants to have a relationship with a woman or man, he should be asking to be released from priesthood before doing so.

@Mary SF.
Hi, and PS, Mary.
I know I have said this ad nauseam, and I apologize…….With ‘permission’ from the Vatican, a RC priest is allowed a leave of absence, up to three years ….with a plausible reason but, he is to remain celibate. Eastern Catholic priests are allowed martiage, and ‘other’ limited activities, but not those of the Roman Catholic persuasion.
If he has sex, he cannot, by canon law, do any ‘priestly things’, except hear confession. He cannot even give absolution becsuse he broke canon law.
So, TPTB take too many liberties…..such as getting married in the RC Church more than once. Only a widow/widower can fo that.

Matt’s too heartthrob good-looking to be wasted on that type of role. He needs to be in the action..an .exciting, charming, love interest. GH needs more leading men. It doesn’t need a priest.

This is a soap Mary!

Not to be a buzzkill but I don’t think Frank has any big love story planned for Griffin at this time. I think they inserted Griffin into the winter romance promo to test the fans reactions. Right now Friz is a fairly popular couple & maybe they didn’t get the reaction they were hoping for. As a huge fan of Griliz I don’t really like how the writers baited us with this idea, only to have zero follow through.

Griffin/Elizabeth as friends or lovers would be wonderful to me. Matt/Becky absolutely light up in their scenes, but the writers will write as they wish.

As for Griffin, I don’t think pairing him with a random newbie would be a good idea. if I can’t have Liz/Griffin, then I like his chemistry with Lucas, but he’s married, so that seems kind of iffy.

I think if the writers want a long term, viable & intriguing romance they will do a slow burn with Griffin & Elizabeth. That is what I would personally want!

I agree. I doubt FV has a pairing for Griff planned.

A slow burn would be fantastic. I already felt that they were building up to Griffin and Elizabeth then the winter promo came out and I was thrilled, but then there have been just a couple of scenes since December. I really want to see GH take advantage of the chemistry. It’s wonderful.

I wish the writers would give Griffin and Liz a chance to be love interests. The potential is there and amamzing chemistry is there! At least a deeper friendship should be happening. These two shine in scenes together!

Celia, Emme will not be leaving until June. Yes, Kimberly is also due in late Spring

Exactly, my point, Bonnie. How can there be room for a romance? They are hoth leaving….and Kim is only ‘visiting’.

I’d like to see Griffin with Kristina Davis Corinthos.

Yep, good call.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Adam J. Harrington Weighs-in On John and Carly, and How it’s ‘Starting to Get Very Complicated”

On recent episodes of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) came to John “Jagger” Cates (Adam Harrington) rescue as he was beaten down in an assault. Carly put on her “nurses cap,” sort of speak, and got John to his hotel room and watched over to him, to make sure he didn’t lose consciousness.

GH fans also got their first glimpse of what may be a new romance for Carly, if she and John continue to bond.  If John and Carly were to have a relationship, it would certainly have a ripple effect with Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard).

Adam J. Harrington shared his view on the scenes and what might be next between the two. Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Harrington shared, “I thought it was written in a way where there’s an understanding and a respect between them both. I don’t think there was any moment where she was not aware that he’s an FBI agent, and there was no moment that he wasn’t aware of her history and relationship to other people in the town. I really liked it. I was really looking forward to shooting it with Laura and we had a really nice time shooting it.”

When Carly and John part ways, it seems there were some romantic sparks, as Harrington puts it, “Isn’t that interesting that sometimes with people, the one moment they actually show how they feel is when they know there’s an escape hatch. They know they’re about to walk away. So, it’s almost safe in that moment to do it. I thought that was really special about how (the writers) handled John and Carly. Even the music in that scene was beautifully done.”

Where is this all heading? Conflict! Internally and professionally, and as Adam explains, “Who Carly was to John on paper as just a tool to be used as bait is starting to get very complicated.”

General Hospital’s Steve Burton Reveals the Emotional Scene He Almost Could Not Get Through

On a recent episode of General Hospital, Jason received a message from his mother, Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) via a note. The effect it had on Jason’s portrayer, Steve Burton turned out to be quite visceral.

As GH fans know, although Jason’s bio-mom was Susan Moore, he was raised and adopted by Monica. Speaking on his Daily Drama podcast with his co-host and GH co-star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Steve shared some insight on the difficulties he had getting through that scene.

Burton shared that in the key moment, “Brooklyn (played by Amanda Setton) came in and that’s where she gave me (Jason) the letter from Monica. That was a very hard scene for me to do. That was a tough one. That was the one time I was almost going to call ‘cut!’  It read ‘Jason, I believe in you.’ I was literally going to walk off the set.”

To clarify and in the story, Monica was saying “I believe in you” and that she knows Jason didn’t shoot Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). Steve added, “It was tough, man. Emotionally, it was a tough scene. It was overwhelming in the moment.”

Steve went on to detail to Anderson, “She (Brook Lynn) pushed it to me and I read it and she was walking out and I had to stop her, but I was so emotional I couldn’t even get it out.  And at that point, I’m like, ‘Do I just keep going … or do I just walk off the set right now?’ But, I knew just to stay, because it’s so hard to get back there, once you shut it down. I knew, the next take wasn’t going to be the same.”

Photo: JPI

It’s clear that Leslie Charleson is so missed on-screen as Monica by all of her castmates, and that Jason and Monica had a very special mother/son relationship throughout the decades on GH.

What did you think of the moment when Jason got a note from Monica that said, “I believe in you?” Were you touched as well? Let us know in the comment section. You can check out the latest episode of Steve and Bradford’s podcast below.
