This week General Hospital viewers should be on the lookout for a heavenly visit, or vision of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), as her mother, Ava (Maura West) looks to finally make contact with the daughter she so desperately wants to make peace with from the great beyond!

And with that, Daytime Emmy-winner Hayley Erin will reprise her role and share scenes with her former on-screen mom, Maura West.

Erin exited GH in early 2019, when she joined the cast of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform in which she currently plays the role of Taylor Hotchkiss.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Are you glad to know that there will be some heavy emotional payoff and scenes between GH’s Ava and her late daughter Kiki? Comment below.

I hope this puts to rest Ava’s craving for Kiki’s forgiveness. Maura is being wasted on this story.

Good. I liked her. I hope she tells Ava to go to Hell!

I agree, maybe she and Satan could kick back with a couple of martinis every day.

Ain’t gonna happen. Besides, alcohol isn’t easy to come by down here. Storage problems, due to the flammability factor, naturally.

We got the taverns which serve beer on tap, but it’s warm, and it’s usually swill like Bud Light & Coors. Because it’s Hell, of course!

Being the Devil, I have an adequate supply of all the finer beverages myself, of course, since I have the air conditioning & refrigeration in my own residence to keep the alcohol from exploding.

Having said that though, I think it would be a snowy day down here before I’d be inviting Ava over for drinks.

Nothing against Haley, but, why, oh why, are the writers doling out this drivel? Parking Lot, psychics, memory mapping, cults..?? This show will be canceled.

Ava needs redeeming in more ways than one. Maybe Connie will forgive her for shooting her in cold blood, or one of her other victims. Ava couldn’t have been more at fault for Kiki’s death, if she had stabbed her, herself. Oh forgot, she already did that, in the back, how many times? Well, at least Hayley Erin gets to make some extra money to come back and forgive mommy dearest, which I’m sure will happen. People like Ava never suffer too long.

i thought i read Kristen? was returning for this as the original Kiki…but its still nice to see this one return….stories on GH so lame…too much with mind switches, psychics and the overplayed Shiloh and cult story and Lulu already movin on after being divorced two seconds from Dante…Dante may have been gone for some time now but it makes Lulu look overly desperate to have a man in her life like no woman cant survive without one!!!

As an avid fan of both Maura and Ava I will always welcome any scene with this superlative thespian—likewise feelings for Erin and Kiki.
Emotions will fly, definitely—it’s what defines a soap, whether we like the characters or not.
Will Kiki’s phantasmic appearance be chucked up as a dream? Illusion? Delusion? Whatever—I hope it will put her death and Ava’s guilt to rest. I personally feel Ava played a major catalystic role leading up Kiki’s murder. Nonetheless, the writers should “fix” Ava’s turmoil one way or another—I am not fond of prolonging matters—stirring the same stew becomes mush after a while———–
Which brings me to Shiloh’s prolonged sojourn. What is so intriguing about this “weasely” character? Can’t stant to look at him or Peter, who has now been linked to Shiloh, who in turn, is linked to Helena—C’mon—-the wheel keeps spinning–all this to give Peter relevance. He is nothing but a door-knob….an empty package put on the shelf, taken down when needed–what a waste of space.
Aside—-when Hayden left, I did say Finn’s and her baby never died—that she would return one day with a child—except that I thought it would be a boy, for some weird reason.
The story here is why did she leave in the first place?
Something else—Carly’s histrionics have reached the rafters of my brain—no patience for this shrew—-not good for the baby!! Shut up, Carly.
Sam? Oh, my!!

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
