Hate to see her leave but instead of gettung her own storyline she had to be part of Finn and Hayden’s who are a snooze and this final exit storyline is forgettable….anyway, Leslie C. as Monica should get more screen time now but i doubt it!!!

I agree, Jimh. I am not a fan of Finn or Hayden, at all. Way too much airtime is spent on trying to prop up Rebecca Budig. She just doesn’t fit in Port Charles, in my opinion.

“Thank You” JimH and @dmr. i’m not saying SOD is the bible… just saying that “respected’ reviews resonate. the very word that is spoken… “Isolated” pairing isolated… what’s the point in building Finn and Hayden when they do not interact with anyone on the canvass. case in point.. what an insult to Jane Elliott.. when she is propped to feature characters who are not resonating… Finn and Hayden are DOA. dead on arrival… what’s the point in featuring this pair? JE did this with Sabrina… I admit that. JE did this with nuLULU. JE even did this with, Luke. I… Read more »

Great post Haskel!

I do hope this gives more airtime to the beloved Leslie Charleston. Who apparently is the last man standing. (From the 70s.). I wish her luck but I don’t know that she has the stamina for s front burner story line.

Like many of the people here, I was a child when Jane came onto the GH canvas. I used to watch the show after school with my mom back in those days. It was such a fun time. The show was making history and setting records. My mother passed away a long time ago but her date of birth was May 4th. This episode is going to be bitter sweet for me for a few different reasons. I thank Jane and GH for the memories.

Thank you for posting this. I feel so strongly that we ‘of a certain age” were brought up by stay at home moms who shared their “stories” with us were very much influenced by this story telling.

My sister put it best , whenever I watch GH I think of sitting on the floor in front of my mother as we’re watched and she combed my hair. These soaps are a connection to those memories . I like many of you was missing my mom who has passed but loved Tracy!

God bless you all !

So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. Mine too passed away at way to young of an age (My mom was 49 years old when she passed away). It was her, too, that first introduced me to General Hospital, back when I was about probably twelve (12) years old, or so (I happen to be about 4 months away from turning 25 years old — as we here speak). My very first episode I saw with her was a pretty epic one. It was back when the character of Carly Corinthos (THEN played / portrayed by actress… Read more »

I first saw Jane on an ABC soap called “Flame in the Wind.” Since then, I’ve seen all roles on all the shows she has graced. This is without a doubt an actress who stands alone in exceptionall-ism. To say she will be sorely missed is an understatement. To Jane, to Tracy: “Have the best of everything in your life so far.”

Before I watched her in GH.I thought she was awesome on Guiding Light..I hadn’t seen her on G H then .Being a guiding Light fan, G H was not the show I watched. Jane is great. I was looking forward to coming back to watch her exit, now Tony Geary returning. I don’t know if I will bother. I have np respect for that guy the way he stuck it to his fans and Genie. Maybe I will dvr it so I can FF his face and voice. best to Jane. She seems to be a class act, even being… Read more »

Steve I went back today, because the news took over the show. I decided to see what was on, and it was nice to see young Ned, tracy and Monica ,not snipping. mutual respect. I saw the hair. What exactly does Tony do in Amsterdam? that is the worst Geary hair so far. It was a nice send off for Jane. She is one hell of an actress.

One word: Icon! They don’t make characters like Tracy Quartermaine anymore. Jane Elliot has always been the consummate professional, bringing her best to whatever she does, whether she was in a featured storyline or in the background. It’s amazing to me that she only has one Emmy win to her credit. But if there’s a reason, it’s because she hasn’t submitted her name many years, because she’s a classy lady that doesn’t believe in competition among peers. Unquestionably, one of the all-time greats in soap opera history. It’s sad to see another stalwart from GH’s glorious, rich history going away.… Read more »

It’s a shame because we have lost so many vets in the last few years. This one is particularly sad to me because I would love to see Tracy Quartermaine on the screen forever. She should be in that mansion playing with her great-grandchildren years from now! But Jane Elliot deserves to live her life. I wish her well!

UNIQUE. I have to use that word because there is absolutely nobody on daytime like Tracy. God, I’m going to miss her terribly and I will miss Jane playing her too. Thank you so much, Jane, for your always wonderful scenes as Tracy with her razor-sharp tongue. There will never be anyone like you on our soaps again. I love you!!!

OK so they brought ABC back to my network satellite I use last week so yes I got sucked in and tapering her last performances and surprise Thursday’s episode in the info does not say one word about Tracy oh no it’s all about Sonny and Carly blah blah blah! FV you and Jelly are really the worse just how much money did you slide under the table for that Emmy! Jane you deserved better!

So many things to say…
1) Do you think they control the episode description for the day?

4) Check for grammar & spelling before you post.

The word that comes to mind when I think of Jane Elliot is excellence. For almost 40 years there have been very few in the business to do it better. She has been part of the heart and soul of General Hospital for so long, it’s hard to imagine the show without her. But the wheel will keep on turning, just like it always has and always will. Thank you Jane for all the years of entertainment, you will be sorely missed!

It doesn’t get better than Jane Elliott. She is in the upper tier of her profession. I will miss seeing her on my TV screen as Tracy Wuatermaine. Decidedly, this last storyline was not the best, but I loved that it brought the Quartermaine’s to the fore with Monica, Ned, Dillon and even Laura. Jane and Genie paired nicely. I don’t care to see Luke again, but I am sure BFF Jane and Tony agreed to this last parting. Good luck to you Ms. Elliott.

Great episode! I was so moved by the events over at the Q’s and in some cases it felt like Wally, Leslie, and Genie were saying goodbye to Jane (vice versa) cause there were watery eyes in all four of them even before Tracy told everyone she was leaving. Very special moment! Wow! What an emotional powerful cliffhanger! Tracy telling everyone in the room that “she loves them and will hold all of them in her heart” and then revealing that she is leaving was the ultimate bittersweet moment. I was so happy for Tracy when she firmly said to… Read more »

Another great post, Jay Trotter. If it’s any consolation, she said in the complete Michael Logan interview that she could possibly visit down the road…no promises and waaaaay down the road it would seem if she did. Maybe she’ll surprise us. Leaving the door open always feels better!

YES! Ned is changing his last name to Quartermaine! What a incredible unexcepted surprise and what a heartwarming tearjerker moment! Ned’s speech was just so beautiful in explaining his own reasons and the legacy of carrying on the family name! I honestly thought that the opening scene would be about him adopting Leo, but this was so much better with him making a uplifting tribute to his Q legacy with a salute to Tracy and Edward. I was fighting back the waterworks and got choked up when Ned said to Tracy “that’s okay with you?” and she said back that… Read more »

Unquantifiable to give quantity to (something regarded as having only quality). I’m certain all superlatives will be used. I marvel at her energies.

I have a sneaky “feeling” that with Jane Elliot leaving her role, that this might lead to Leslie Charleson to decide to be the next one to retire her role of Monica.

If she is left with any role from which to retire, Ashland! In recent years, it’s been more like Monica left Leslie behind, and not vice versa!!!!

Well, when that sad day finally arrives, I hope Monica’s last frame will be one in which she is reunited with her son, AJ— you know, the only true Quartermaine heir—and we learn that he is alive and well after surviving a near-death experience and lengthy, deep coma that continued through these last two GH writing regimes!

So many words can be used to describe the incomparable Jane Elliot. Loved your portrayal of Tracy Quartermaine. The character of Tracy Angelica Quartermaine kind of reminds me of “The Dorian Lord” of Port Charles.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

Courtesy/ABC

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
