Another daytime favorite is coming to General Hospital.  This time its Kimberly J. Brown (Ex-Marah) of Guiding Light fame.  She last appeared on the soaps during her from 1993-1998 and then a brief return in 2006

According to Soap Opera Digest, she will make her GH debut next week in a mystery role.

Kimberly worked with two GH powerhouse actresses during her tine on Guiding Light. 

She noted to SOD about her time in Springfield: Cynthia Watros (Nina, GH, Ex-Annie Dutton, GL) was my stepmom for a bit, and Laura Wright (Carly, Ex- Cassie, GL) played my aunt.”

Well…. she would have to bleach her hair to do it, but…. she’s about the right age for a LuLu recast. And it is about time she woke up from that coma, ain’t it?

I’d really rather see Julie Marie Berman come back, of course. But that’s the guess I’m going with. They sure as Hell don’t need any more new characters on an already crowded canvas.

I’m thinking she will be Maxie’s nanny.

Right you are, and looks like that A.H Peter killed the real nurse. The plot thickens!

Hmmmm. Who could she be? Not that we need any recasts right now, but she does look like she could play a number of current characters on screen. As for those currently not on screen… It’s too soon for Lulu to return, and I’d doubt they hire a brunette for the role. I’ll rule out Serena Baldwin or Lila Rae Alcazar because we can’t have good things and KJB might be a bit old for both roles. Conversely, she’s too young for Sarah Webber. Since we already know that John Reilly’s daughter will play Annie Donely, she’s probably not tied… Read more »

This is the second time in two weeks we’ve been “warned” about the imminent arrival of former soap vets. Why do we need them? Bring back characters we know and utilize the underseen.

Just what the show needs: more new cast members. NOT.

Well, being the age of 36, kind of puts her in an odd age group somewhere between Willow, Sasha, Brook Lyn, Sam and then Carly, Nina, Olivia, Ava, so this will be very interesting.

Um … Sam is in the Carly Ava Nina age group. She could be a mother to any of those younger girls.

Hi Violet..
yah she’s 36 but–
Height: 5′ 5½”
GH has a lot of miniature women.
I’m 5-7– with shoes higher..
It’s funny– I have a 5-3 friend and
I look down at her, she looks up..
Sam is miniature looks like
an 11yr old- girl, same for Liz and Maxie
and most all others. All wear 6-inch heels, every second possible in the shower too LOL
I’ve seen them wearing their tower heels on in/on bed, they are never without their 6-inch heels on, never..weird.
Why can’t they be natural wearing Nikies etc?

I think she’s going to be Maxie’s new nurse and be mixed up with Peter!

Kudos to you and Harry that guessed right. I never thought of that.

Violet, Violet, I HATE this story! Peter ALWAYS has the upper hand, over and over. Enough already! In what universe would Jason let this worm slither along like this? And his Snidely Whiplash performances are becoming laughable. S.O.S!

I’m not sure it’s the actor’s fault – I think he and everyone else in this dreadful storyline have done their best with some awful material, but I have definitely had enough of Peter! The longer this goes, the more good actors/characters are being dragged into it.
I feel so bad for Finola Hughes and James Patrick Stuart especially. They are great actors having to try to sell this day after day.
It is the storyline that ate the GH canvas at this point!

I completely disagree—he’s a horrible actor. He whispers his lines trying to sound evil and it only makes him seem laughable. It’s past time for him as his character to go.

Being somewhat an expert on all things “evil”, I would have to say that Whiny Heiny will be the butt of jokes for all eternity when he finally arrives in Hell. I can’t imagine Adolf Hitler or Joe Stalin inviting him over to any of their parties.

Also, it’s not a good idea to invite Joe & Adolf to the same party either, but that’s entirely another story….

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.
