Holy Vampires! General Hospital To Kick-Off Story Arc As Homage To PC's Livvie/Caleb/Lucy Slayer Story!

Courtesy/ABC

We had heard rumors of this and now it has been confirmed via Michael Logan at TV Guide Magazine today! General Hospital is about to kick-off a new story arc that is part homage, part outlandish, part new, when Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) spots John McBain (Michael Easton) on the Monday January 14th episode of the ABC soap opera.

According to the series head scribe, Ron Carlivati, when Lucy happens upon McBain and Kelly’s Diner she freaks out and screams, “Caleb!” Later Kelly Monaco’s character, Sam, comes out of the ladies room and Lucy think it’s Livvie.”   As it turns out, Lucy then goes into full vampire slayer mode and stabs John. He’s rushed to the hospital, and she ends up in lock-up!

Now as soapers know, Monaco played Livvie, Easton played her… lover vampire Caleb, and Herring crossed-over from GH as Lucy, and the trio were part of a television vampire saga that was ahead of its time on GH’s spinoff, Port Charles!

As for how far Carlivati and his writing team will go with this story, the scribe revealed, “The story does get pretty over-the-top yet it’s still rooted in a certain reality.  Lucy may be off-kilter but she’s certainly not in Heather Webber territory. Her belief in vampires will be very convincing.”

Could GH possibly being toying with the idea of making McBain, Caleb?  Especially if Prospect Park throws the usage of the character of John McBain on GH in question for its One Life reboot?  Just a thought!

So soapers, what do you think of this homage to Lucy the vampire slayer?  Will it explain why McBain and Sam feel this deep connection?  Weigh in!

I am beyond excited for this story. Loved PC. Calivia was a great love story and I’m sure Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco will bring it again this time. PC was very dry and witty in its writing style and I know that Ron will also do that justice with his own twist, of course.

I loved Port Charles and the chemistry between ME and KM. Thus news makes sense with the news that Erin Hershey would be appearing On GH – wasn’t Allison pregnant with Caleb’s baby on the PC finale? I like the idea of ME staying on GH and as Caleb he would be able to remain without PP recalling him. Love this!

I am BEYOND thrilled of Caleb and Olivia Morley re-surfacing in the town of Port Charles. I’ve been VERY disappointed that General Hospital hasn’t given more respect to the little soap that could (Port Charles — if it had been given a chance) and to the actors that helped “Bring It To Life”. I never bought into John Mcbain on OLTL, the character bored me but I got excited again when I heard ME and KM would be together. The chemistry is incredible and should be capitalized on, I would love to see them woven into the fabric of General… Read more »

I DEFINITELY DON’T LIKE THIS STORY LINE AT ALL. IT IS STUPID AND I HAVE ALREADY VOWED NOT TO WATCH IT AGAIN IF THEY DON’T STOP. ONE LIFE TO LIVE GOT CANCELED BECAUSE PEOPLE GOT TIRED OF WATCHING MUSICALS, SO IF GENERAL HOSPITAL KEEPS THIS UP THEY WILL LOSE RATINGS AND THERE WILL BE NO SOAPS ON ABC. IF ANYONE COULD GET INTOUCH WITH THE WRITERS OF GENERAL HOSPITAL, PLEASE TELL THEM TO KILL THIS STORYLINE NOW. A FAITHFUL GH FAN.

I don’t think so Particia. Bringing another exciting element into General Hospital and bringing back beloved characters for those that were devoted Port Charles fans, can only increase fan base. In addition, they are bringing back some of General Hospital older fan favorites as Laura (Genie Francis), who is the Luke and Laura love duo. As well as other characters and good storylines from the past who possed an interest to fans. So I say bravo. I think that the infusion of Port Charles into General Hospital, especially at this time when Vampire movies are scoring big, is one of… Read more »

This doesn’t sound good to me at all. I think they need to leave stupid vampire stories alone and didn’t PC fail anyway? I certainly never watched that show. Hope it’s a very, very short arc.

Christine

Ces, it sounds to me like it is going to be more in the line of when John McBain was introduced to GH and Luke kept calling him “Lestat.” I think it is cute. Kind of tongue-in-cheek and a joke for those that get it. That particular arc on Port Charles was what got me to start watching. It was very sexy and campy and different from the other soaps at the moment plus you were guaranteed a resolution in six months or less unlike the slow storytelling of some shows. I just hope it is a few episodes wherein… Read more »

I did enjoy the Lestat joke. I just don’t want GH to completely lose direction (they’re doing so well!!).

Yes true Ces. I hope they don’t try to make a logical reason to now prove that Caleb is just Steven Clay, a rock star who went mad and thinks he’s a vampire. They cannot erase the fact that all of us Port Charles fans, know that is not true and saw them portray this year after year on ch 7 right before G.H. So don’t go back and make believe there is another reality. That would make me dump the show. Weave it into the G.H. setting or better yet, revitalize Port Charles and spin it off again as… Read more »

and I see that Kevin is coming back too (jon lindstrorm) so perhaps this is for the anniversary coming up or for this short? storyline. i never watched PC either. John McBain was on OLTL for quite a while, so don’t know how they could turn him into someone else on GH when he’s been John on there too… I hope Prospect Park will allow the OLTL characters’ names/personas to remain on GH. I certainly wouldn’t mind crossovers too. That would be cheap advertising for both shows…. just have to pay for airfare from CA to CT. 🙂 and how… Read more »

“and how would OLTL explain John and Nat being separated, and all the other stuff that’s happened since last Jan?”

Um ,VERY easily …Clint Buchanan. Never watched OLTL have you? or if you did you’ve forgotten just how manipulative he is when it comes to his children and messing up their lives. Per story lines he has fabricated so called “proof” against people time & time again to get them to believe as he wishes, he could do it yet again with Natalie.

TRW – I agree that GH has been too serious – aka “too much mob” for me. And I remember Casey the alien and the Cassadines with winter in summer, but that was a different time for soaps; they were extremely popular back then and there were more than 15 soaps on the air. I just think at this time, with only 4 soaps on the air and all struggling for viewers, writers might not want to go too far off reality. Of course, DOOL did survive Satan – so who knows.

Ms. B.
Guest

That’s why I started to watch it again because it was serious over the last 2 decades. When the freeze the world plot came I left. It needs to stay based in reality. Bring Jason and Sam together or at least recast his part.

I agree. I am a new viewer to GH, was attracted to the classic soap opera story telling I was seeing, but was never a fan of the supernatural genre. I stopped watching Days during all the demon possession stuff and if GH goes down this route, well I won’t be watching it. It is not my cup of tea- but for those it is, I’m sure they will love it. Never watch Port Charles, didn’t watch Passions either for the same reason- just not my thing- too bad because I was just starting to really like GH.

Oh don’t give up yet, ladies! I feel the same way about DAYS and I never watched Passions either. I have to believe that this is just a little stint, not an arc in the sense that Robin being presumed dead is (i.e., MONTHS of story). I have a feeling this is the new springboard to launch Sam and John together, for Sam to see John in another light after Lucy stabs him or after they figure out why exactly they seem familiar to one another. Now that Steve Burton has moved on, I think it is only fair that… Read more »

I think it’s rating suicide…but that’s just me. I can understand them entertaining the idea because of Port Charles…but with the current trend of eliminating our beloved Soap Opera’s, this may need a re-think. Just look what it did to DOOL with Marlena being “possessed by the devil”! I know I stopped watching it after that. There is this typical fictional “I wish I had that life” theme that’s soaps are classic in relaying to it’s fans…and then there is this land of make believe that just doesn’t jive or you can’t even see yourself being because it doesn’t exist.… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more. We all know bringing back people from the dead is normal for soaps and I usually LIKE who they’re bringing back so.. but Vampires, possessions, aliens (GH did that too) are just too much and I won’t waste my time watching them.

I only saw a few episodes of PC, so I’m not sure how this will work in GH’s favor. I will say that IMO Cartini does “camp” very well. Also, I saw on SOAPnet’s homepage that through my wireless service provider I can apparently access reruns of Port Charles and thought I would check it out when I have some time. Could be fun.

Oh Lynn, I was a OLTL fan too and miss it to this day… But… I’m LOVING what GH has done with John McBain. I loved the actor on PC but never quite saw that spark in him on OLTL… Now that he’s on GH, I see his spark again…. I’m loving GH now!

Does this mean that Sam and John were Caleb and Livvie all along? Perhaps Faison had them under mind control and made them assume new identities? Are the Port Charles vampires tied to Planet Lumina?

If it gets the 3 of them in scenes together again and ignites the heat from Michael & Kelly I am all for it. If you think Steve B & Kelly had chemistry, you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen Michael & Kelly together. Crazy passion! I do think it will be a great wink to PC, and if it goes for a bit, that’s OK. Dont think I want a full blown vampire story but a little fun, light heartedness and Lucy being Lucy is ALWAYS a good thing. I agree though, I think PC was WAY ahead of… Read more »

Sounds like trash city for GH to me. This show may be jumping the shark as previously mentioned for some of us.

I was sick enough of the Todd and Starr overdose. OLTL was my favorite ABC soap, but a little moderation is needed in the use of these characters now. However, vampires is not what I was hoping would replace them in screen time.

I hate to hear this….. 🙁

Ahh then you were never a fan of; Dark Shadows’ the soap opera that to this day is still being watched and considered the best soap of all time.. Port charles’; ABC from June 2, 1997 to October 3, 2003 somewhat similar to the earlier series Dark Shadows; Each 13-week arc of the story was referred to as a “book”. There were a total of thirteen books after the series switched to that format. This type of storytelling is a staple of Latin telenovelas.

No, I was a fan of Dark Shadows, it was the first soap I really watched. And I enjoy watching it now as well. I just think that was a different animal from GH. Different, too, from AMC and OLTL. I loved DS because it was a gothic, supernatural story even before Barnabas and Co. arrived. The other soaps I mentioned, that I liked, didn’t go the supernatural route as a general rule, and for me personally, seeing it happen now would be jarring to say the least.

Not a vampire fan and didn’t see much of PC but do remember they did have great chemistry. They can easily have that great chemistry as Sam McCall/Morgan and John McBain! It’s fun to hear Lucy may get worked up about it but it is tooooooooooooo strange to have Sam be Livi and John be Caleb on GH.

We know the ”flash” of the vampire love of Livvi and Caleb will be nothing more than a dream or some sort of thing and will not even be a story, just a laugh and something different in GH for us all to get some humor relief and simply to have/enjoy a good time with it ..

I’m torn. The PC/Calivia fan in me appreciates the fun they are trying for, but the John McBain fan side of me absolutely hates it. Maybe if he had another storyline or something, but he’s barely on and when he is it is usually in the role of Sam’s sidekick or Cop #2. Lame. I am excited to see ME/KM/LH/(and hopefully)JL in scenes, but please…this is GH, not Port Charles. I guess I’ll have to see how it plays out?

Hoping this will prove the Vampire story was all a weird dream and Lucy, John, Sam will feel the deja Vu. Maybe Sam and John had the same dream.

I understand not liking the prospect of this storyline – I’m certainly more than leery – but one RC is NOT, is a hack. He misfires now and then, of course. But in a medium where mediocre has been the best we could hope for, for quite some time, RC has far more often than not delivered good story.

As far as I’m concerned, Michael Easton is so much more than “John McBain”. His talent as an actor has been wasted between OLTL and GH. Anyone who remembers his performance as Caleb on PC knows what I mean. He played a ficticious creature with such passion. You never got the feeling that he was playing it as “camp”. He gained quite a following. He and Kelly Monaco set the screen on fire during their love scenes. Very raw and intense, especially considering it was daytime television.

Judith, I do agree with that. I have never liked Michael Easton on OLTL. I tried to wrap my head around that character, but he was so boring. I thought Nathanial Marsten was much more entertaining than Easton on that show. Anyway, when he was on PC, you couldn’t take your eyes off the screen – he was that mesmerizing. His pairing with Kelly Monaco was insane. They had so much chemistry. But I did like John McBain paired with Tristan Rogers last month. When he messed with the thermostat and was tasting the fondue, he was funny. I would… Read more »

I caught up with P.C. on youtube recently and discovered ME. Wonderful acting. He just crackled onscreen. And between him and KM, the chemistry was absolutely off the charts. I tried to look at a few OLTL episodes with the McBain character but it was like watching paint dry! On GH ,McBain has more life in him and I for one was excited to see Caleb for a minute on yesterday’s episode though he appeared to be in full-blown evil mode.

Agreed! Loved Loved having ‘Port Charles’ as my guilty pleasure!! I liked laughing at Lucy’s antics, but always rooted against her even though she was one of the ‘heroes’ – – – I wanted my supernatural Power Couple of Livvie and Caleb to be left alone!!

This is gonna be fun!!!!!!!!!

Gotta say that as much as I loved Port Charles (and I really, really did) I’m not sure I want that story on GH….GH is just now getting back to it’s glory days and I can’t see how that could possibly fit in. That said, no particular storyline will make me stop watching GH. I’m a fan 4ever. But if this really is going to happen, I do hope that it has a very brief run (still love ya, Ron!)

I am so happy that GH is throwing this nod to the PC fans….I just hope they do not turn it into a slap in our faces. I would love to have Caleb, Livvie, and the whole Port Charles crew back, however I’d rather they be on their own how like they were before.

What if the whole vampire story line never happened,and it was all a dream/fantasy/hallucination etc of Lucy’s? That would explain why no one on GH ever talked about the vampires.

Good point. I always thought the writers made a tragic mistake by not acknowledging the storyline in general Hospital.

Sa,w the episode in question and I must say I enjoyed it. I was a faithful fan of Port Charles and was angry that it was cancelled. So what if Port Charles was far fetched. all soaps stretch the imagination, that’s what makes for exciting television.I just hope this is not the first step in the downfall of general Hospital. Innovative storylines are what keep a show fresh and exciting. and if they are provocative so much the better. So bring on Caleb/Livvie and their minions and we will soon realize that the whole show has been a dream induced… Read more »

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.
