General Hospital

Hallelujah! GH Welcomes Michael Easton Back To The Party: Watch The Promo!

Courtesy/ABC

The images you have been seeing on social media from a recent General Hospital promo shoot have all come together in a terrific new spot for the long-running ABC daytime drama series.

Set to Andy Grammer’s hit song, Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah) the cast of GH party on with balloons, smiles and sexy looks. But at the end of the promo, the series officially welcomes back Michael Easton and heralds his return on the upcoming Monday, March 21st episode!

During the video, the lyrics “I think I finally found my hallelujah. I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life. Now all my dreams are coming true, ya. I’ve been waiting for this moment,” are used over the cast images from the Grammer tune.  And when Easton arrives in the video, the song lyrics change to: “Good to be alive right about now.”

Watch the video featuring all of your GH favorites after the jump, and then let us know what you thought of it, and if you are looking forward to Easton’s arrival on March 21st!

Well from the promo, it doesnt look like ABC has ANY plans of canceling our beloved soap! Excellent!

I dunno for sure..
but when a soap gets canceled it happens with very little or no notice..

GH has good 4 years left ..

True to that..

At the rate GH is going, 4 years is way too generous..I was one to bitch and moan about Ron C. writing towards the end of his tenure, but the current writers are so worse for wear, that I prefer to tune in to a soap from Mexico instead of watching GH during my time off..I have life 4 episodes to see and have no interest..

I was SO wrong…Please bring Ron C. back…At least he was entertaining, cartoonish and all!!

ABC may not have any plans right now to cancel GH but if this promo is an indication of what TPTB think appeals to GH fans, they may not have a choice. Hallelujah, the whole cast dancing around, waiting for this moment all my life, all my dreams coming true, because Michael Easton is back? Lol! Either Frank is delusional, or he’s just using his OLTL actor to mess with fans, which actually means he is delusional thinking that’s a good strategy. Easton is someone of no consequence on GH. Silas was a flop and he was fired. He left… Read more »

This promo represents FV and NV’s “vision” for the show, and who it will feature: heavy on the Corinthi, “Julexis” and Jasam. Precisely the folks front and center for the last failed Sweeps period. “Julexis” wedding was a ratings dud, the Corinthi drive down ratings, Jasam are just a bore and have done nothing to spike ratings at all. This vision is a failed vision, which I note did not feature Genie Francis or Becky Herbst. Herbst was expected to take the low ball offer and be marginalized, or refuse it and be gone. Genie may have lost interest, and… Read more »

I’m not sure I can agree with assigning the blame to Valentini (I think all of this could just as well be ABC’s vision, with Frank and the writers left to execute it—but I’d love to know for sure, and if anybody has insider knowledge, please please please please PLEASE share it), but I do absolutely agree that this whole episode points loud and clear to what a mess this show has become and how screwed up they (whoever “they” is–FV, ABC execs, the writers, whoever) have made things. I have no particular objection to Mr. Easton’s return (provided they… Read more »

It is more laughable than even you imagined, AJQ. According to DC, the GH cast was NOT told it was filming a promo to welcome back ME. They all thought it was a promo for GH, and not for FV’s pet actor on his 4th GH role. Wow! Way to engender a lot of jealousy now that the promo is out. FV’s agenda is so transparent. He couldn’t care less about GH. I am kind of floored he pulled that on this cast, already swelled with useless newbies!

AJQ I think you’re reading way too much into one promo. Michael Easton may not be a GH vet but he’s a SOAP vet…and a very popular one. There was a huge petition to get him rehired on GH, it obviously worked and this promo addresses his return. For those of us who care…and I am one of those who do…the promo works just fine. Love Easton and am hoping for his sake as well as the fans that this time around is a charm.

AJQ

Tristan, I saw that. It was pretty obvious from just watching the promo that it was filmed as a general promo and then edited for Easton. Can you imagine the GH actors reaction now seeing it? They had them dancing around for Michael Easton? Lol! Like he’s anyone and he’s going to save them. Their lives must have been so empty with him gone, but HALLElUJAH! He’s back! They’re dreams are coming true! They’ve waited for this their whole lives!They have to be livid. And Rebecca1, you can like Michael and be glad he’s back. The promo can work just… Read more »

Well AJQ, I AM a GH fan. And there are many GH fans who were upset to see Michael go and are happy that he’s back. And if you want to talk ridiculous…as you say…I think it’s ridiculous to think ANY executive is going to bring back any actor because he “has an agenda” or because he’s a friend , etc. If there’s any “agenda” it’s to keep his own job secure by attempting to increase the fan base and kerp the show on the air. Whether he’s successful or not, or for how long, time will tell. Shows come… Read more »

Rebecca1 I’ve given it some more thought and you’re right. Michael Easton is a huge star. Huge. GH fans love him and are eagerly waiting for his return. Certainly the cast wouldn’t be dancing around all giddy if it weren’t true. When he comes back, GH will immediately hit 3.5 million viewers and a 650K demo rating minimum I think. That’s the kind of impact a major star like Easton will have, that’s why the cast is so giddy, he’s going to save them. And you’re right, Producers and executives never have favorites or personal agendas. That never plays into… Read more »

Michael needs a hot love story that will melt our TV’s. It’s been a long time since he’s had that kind of story. Not since his John and Evangeline days has he had love scenes that would make you want to turn on a fan. (Smile). I would love for Renee Goldberry to visit Port Charles as ME’s character’s long lost lover, one can always hope.

Olivia
Guest

I totally agree, he looks marvelous. He and Jordan would be a hot couple.

Trophy Lady
Guest
Trophy Lady

Of course, I absolutely agree with you, Olivia! I do wish Jordan would’ve been featured more in the promo. She was only shown once. Oh well, they can make up for that by putting Michael’s character and Jordan together on the show!

The Commissioner and the NEW HOT DOCTOR! Yeah, that sounds (and looks!) pretty good to me!

Olivia

Michael is heading east to the NYC area, I hope he takes time to see Hamilton and say hi to an old friend, Renee Goldsberry.

Jordan already has two men after her, she doesn’t need another. Save Griffin for Lizzy.
At least she and her massive hair extensions were in the promo. There was nary a sight of Laura or Lizzy.

Trophy Lady

Trophy Lady

Maybe “Lizzy” should just be single for a while. She hasn’t tried that before, and I think now just may be the time for her to try something new. She has THREE KIDS to care for. I think she should just focus on them for a while. As for Jordan, she has Andre after her — and he’s a BORE. Who is the other guy you speak of? But since you’ve mentioned that GORGEOUS Dr. Griffin, I think he’d look great with Jordan, too. But, let’s just be honest, Jordan is BEAUTIFUL and would look great on the arm of… Read more »

Harry…I think Andre and Anna are, and have been, interested in each other for a while. I’d be surprised if they dont explore that relationship. If they don’t, Easton with Anna would also be attractive.

Intersting how they threw Maxie and Griffin together today…another possible match.

Basically there’s no way of predicting because we’re just going on looks. It really depends on his personality and who his character REALLY is.

Trophy Lady

LOL, exactly, Cee Cee! EVERYONE knows who Renee Goldsberry is! If you’ve ever seen Michael Easton SHINE beyond belief, then you know EXACTLY who Renee Goldsberry is!

Port Charles is near nothing it’s a fictional town but Broadway is hor real. A superstar is what Michael calls Renee and think he would love to work with her again.

Oh, my gosh, Trophy Lady. I had completely forgotten about Renee as Evangeline. LOL. I did not put 2 and 2 together or assimilate the names…..my bad. NOOOOW, it makes sense.

CeeCee

I understand the chronological aspect on soaps….it is what it is.
But, as far as Curtis, I suppose it’s a matter of taste. I look at the whole body…facial features, shoulders, tapering waistline….Curtis is a good-looking guy!
Better looking than Dante; more appealing than Andre, who, may I add, all he has is an elegant wardrobe. This guy has no appeal, except for his medical degree? Tee-Hee.
Bye, love you guys.

Right, Tristan. Imagine that! Sam’s new leading man….about the same age as her daddy, Julian.

No corporate entity would embark on such a chaotic strategy purposefully. Like much if not most of GH planning in the years since FV was made executive producer, this looks like cleaning up the dung on the floor. Just like with Becky Herbst, just like with Luke/Fluke/Puke, just like with the story disaster turning into the casting disaster of the OLTL three. Not ONE exec that has anything to do with this classic and at one time, marquis daytime drama deserves to keep their jobs with the show. And once again, AJQ hits the nail on the head.

Happy for all the ME fans out there, and I certainly don’t object to his being back (he can act, and his exit interview when Silas was killed off showed what a truly classy and humble guy he is–a certain recently departed Big Star might take a lesson). But I’m struck, as I watch all this hoopla, with the observation that if I were compiling a list of actors GH has let go who absolutely needed to be brought back, he wouldn’t even make my top 10. At least if they’re going to do this, let’s all hope that they… Read more »

I’m delighted they’re bringing Michael back, and I agree with you about the Silas character. Michael’s interview in Soaps in Depth was very telling in this regard. He was very circumspect and diplomatic yet candid about why the Silas role was so uninspiring. I’ve been blogging about Silas’s death and Michael’s resurrection ever since last July.

Amy, and I do not care for the Rebecca bashing–it goes both ways. What these idiotic fans do not understand is that Rebecca and “Killy” are dear friends in real life. This is the most senseless and idiotic war between fan bases and neither actress enjoys it or participates it. The reason Rebecca Herbst as Lizzy is not in the promo is that it was filmed while contract negotiations were still pending. So you can stop rubbing your hands with malevolent glee over the fact that there is no Lizzy in the promo as it doesn’t mean anything. Our ethereally… Read more »

I find some of the combos interesting. Why is Franco dancing with Carly and not Nena? I didn’t see Elizabeth? Was this shot while they were in contract negotiations? What about Laura, Tracy, Monica, Hayden, Epiphany, Mac and Felicia, Ava or Andre? Dear heavens, they had more than enough shots of Sam. They could have replaced most to includes these other characters.

I know, gripe, gripe, gripe. But seriously, I am just happy to see ANY promo the network provides. This one was far better than some.

Great promo! GH really messed up when they brought on the 3 OLTL characters in 2013, and bringing the sexy Michael Easton back in a new character has set the ship straight again! Sam belonging with Jason, Sonny with Carly, etc. And Michael’s even wearing a color other than black!! Now that is a big step forward.

Looking forward to Michael’s new character unfold. Sure wish GH would bring on Melissa Archer though!

The cast looked great especially my new fave griffin and Nathan, Finola as well . But the promo is to welcome Michael back and it felt a bit to much if you ask me not because he’s not worth it but it looks like overkill something one would do out of guilt, for firing him in the first place . If the show was promoting something else then it would make more sense . Regardless, welcome back Michael, and hallelujah !!!

Honestly, I would like him to be paired up with Tracy. He reminds me so much of Edward the way he barks out orders and reams people a new one every time they so much as look at him the wrong way.
Tracy has always had a Daddy complex–why not marry the old bastard and they can have a new cantankerous grouch in the Q mansion?

Melissa
Guest
Melissa

I couldn’t agree more. If the production values of this promo could be brought to GH that would be amazing! I have no quibble with the wardrobe, but the sets are getting tired and boring. Give Griffin a home asap. Make sure Michael Easton’s new character has an apartment at the outset. Have Dante and Lulu move into a new space. Build a new home for Elizabeth with her insurance money. Not everyone can live at Wyndemere or Metro Court. Metro Court, in particular, has been used to DEATH as a residence. Who in the world has the money to… Read more »

That makes perfect sense, Melissa. Although, as co-owner of the MetroCourt, I can understand Olivia making the hotel her residence. As for Jordan, since she’s nearly always been on the government payroll, one way or another, she’s not footing the bill for her digs…..typical bureaucrat, making John Q. Public responsible for her living expenses. LOL.

Well, “everybody’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man,” CeeCee! It’s a multi-generational thing….I love it, too. The shorter coif and facial hair, not so much, though. I’ve always gone for ME’s unique signature look of the long locks and I do prefer him clean shaven…..he has such an interesting, timeless face, I rather appreciate him more when he has that “blank canvas” where I can imagine him from all sorts of various eras. Regardless, I welcome him back to GH!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

@Shay.
Hiya, Shay…
I know, and I agree. I loved Michael’s longer ‘locks’ myself….and I definitely do not like facial hair on him. Yes, I am glad he’s back as well, but as a much more sophisticated personality than Silas….with a dash of mystery.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Oh yes, CeeCee, it will be a delight to have a “sophisticated gent” on the GH canvas for a change….such characters were once a soap opera staple, and now all we seem to get in Port Charles are mobsters, thugs, some lame law enforcers and more mobsters….I’m hoping ME’s addition will portend a new direction toward a more elegant population of professional males.

Loved it! This is one of the better enjoyable GH promos in ages and features the majority of the cast mingling around but of course some only focus on the very end with Easton cause they have to put a negative spin on everything. I have really missed fun light promos like this from all soaps and the showcasing of so many actors out of character for a change. Easton appeared in the final few seconds of the video and it is good business sense on FV’s part cause he’s very well known to ABC daytime viewers. He is just… Read more »

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
