General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.

I love Olivia so who cares how or when she gets her kisses? Will love seeing more of her in the upcoming shows. Also think Wally/Ned has had a nice long rest, especially from crazy town, Salem. He looks rejuvenated, and younger. Love his haircut, he looks better all around.

Tptb should have kept her with Julian – she is just not a good fit for the Quartermaine clan…..

I don’t want her with Julian ; he and his former wife should reunite. They really are an item.

The short break in filming due to co vid 19, and now the return of GH… has made me realize that just how much I missed it. I hope viewership increases and ABC see the true value in their daytime shows. I did enjoy the mention of “Pine Valley and the Chancellors. Could it be… our other two very missed shows, All My Children and One Life to Live… might be making a comeback ??

This has nothing to do with Olivia but someone anyone needs to tell GH that they just did a mockery of Alzheimer’s you don’t just quit eating one day and then poof back sitting up talking!

Does every person have the same experiences? I know three people who dealt with Alzheimer’s ; two are dead and one is still enduring it. As far as I remember , they had the same basic symptoms ; however , there were differences.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
