Hot on the heels of the new of the dismissal of Rebecca Herbst as Elizabeth Webber on General Hospital, comes official word today out of ABC Soaps In Depth that actress, Erin Chambers who plays Siobhan has been put on contract by the series.

The actress tweeted last week that “I’ve been dying to tell everyone and today it is official. I was offered a contract on General Hospital and I couldn’t be more excited!!!” 

So does this mean it’s going to be a definite Siobhan/Lucky pairing in the offing?

GH fires Rebecca Herbst because they say her character has no storyline, and then announce that Erin has been put on contract. The character of Elizabeth has so much more connection and story possibilities (Jason and Elizabeth, Lucky and Elizabeth, Nikolas and Elizabeth, The Webbers) then Siobhan. Maybe if GH stop bring on new character that nobody cares about and focused more on the character they have Elizabeth could have a storyline. I honestly don’t care for the character of Siobhan and am so angry at the powers that be over at GH for firing Rebecca. As a long time fan of GH I will not be tuning in regularly anymore to watch pointless character brought on to the canvas!

I’m SO tired of Siobhan already! And they’re getting rid of Elizabeth Webber? She has 3 children, and 2 boys’ fathers very much around. (And one who thinks he IS a father)

This is ridiculous. I’m tired of Lucky running after Siobhan, send her home on the next boat to Dublin.
Jonathan Jackson is my favorite, dear boy. I always hoped Lucky and Elizabeth might find their way back. At the very least, he’s ‘daddy’ to two of the boys. He can’t lose them. It will break his heart.

While it is sad that Becky Herbst has lost her job, I’m a one viewer who will take Siobhan McKenna over Liz Webber any day of the week. I am a huge fan of Jonathan Jackson, on General Hospital and beyond the show, and the chemistry he has with Erin Chambers is phenomenal. TPTB struck paydirt when they put those two together and I’m not surprised that Erin was given contract. She’s talented. She’s beautiful and she has the soulful gravitas to go toe to toe with one of the best actors in the soap industry. Those two sizzle and pop together whenever they’re on my screen!

For all Liz Webber’s “ties” to the canvas, she has become a useless cariacature. I found her dull and exhausting. She literally sucked the life and soul out of Lucky and that was saddening to watch. With the introduction of Siobhan McKenna, Lucky Spencer has literally regained his mojo. He seems to have found his soul again, his sparkle…his Spenstincts. His eyes shine with devilish merriment again. He’s flirting and smiling and confident. He’s following his gut and leading with his heart and it’s hella sexy to see! Even with all the lies, mixed signals and confusion, Siobhan still manages to make Lucky smile. She presents a challenge and he’s more than eager to rise to meet it. Siobhan lights his fire when all Liz did was make him miserable and, as a long time fan of Jonathan Jackson’s Lucky, I very much prefer the former over the latter.

Yes, it is sad that Becky has to lose her job and I wish her and her family all the best, but Liz stopped being interesting for this fan YEARS ago so, for me, this was a foregone conclusion. In the meantime, I am beyond ecstatic that Erin Chambers has been put on contract. It was a smart move on the Network’s part to lock her in before someone else scooped her up. I can’t wait to watch what other unfolding tales Robert Guza has in store for Lucky and Siobhan.

I haven’t enjoyed General Hospital this much in years.

Thanks for the comments, but it’s obvious you’re on staff! (And if not, you should get a PR job for GH!) LOL

BH leaving bites! Much GOOD story potential gone. But given the financial crisis, I suppose GH going for the low brow stuff is what they have to do. 🙁

Nope. I’m not on staff. I’m simply a fan who has never been wowed by the character Liz Webber. She’s boring, two-dimensional and, did I mention mindnumbingly boring??? I don’t feel that Liz has contributed very much to the canvas in the last six years and, as Becky’s maternity leave demonstrated, her absence won’t be that big of a loss…not to me anyway.

Hopefully we will get rid of the fake accent and the story to come out so that we can maybe like her a bit more. I like her actually, just dont like the accent and I think once the whole Liz being gone and the story of her helping the balkin because they have her sister comes out, it will be ok.

I was interested to see what GH would do with Siobhan but not at the expense of Elizabeth. As pissed off as I’ve been at Elizabeith I never once wished her off the show.

I am as mad as I have ever been! Why did “GH” dump a long time character like Elizabeth for a short term one like SIobhan? Elizabeth is much better than Siobhan, I don’t see the point there.

Liz wasn’t “dumped” for Siobhan. Liz was “dumped” because the writers had nowhere to go with her. If they had, Siobhan would have never been conceived as a character in the first place.

I’d just like to reiterate…congratulations, Erin, and welcome to General Hospital!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
