GH fans were hoping that Ingo Rademacher’s return to the ABC daytime drama series would be a little longer, but news today from the fan favorite himself via his Instagram account, revealed he wrapped his return and is headed back to his home in Hawaii and to appear on the hit CBS series, Hawaii-Five-O.

Next week on the Monday August 1st episode of General Hospital, Jax will be on action on-screen as he comes into the Josslyn kidney donor storyline.  Over the last week, Ingo has been posting photos and videos from the set on his social media accounts, especially with his longtime cast mates, Laura Wright (Carly) and Maurice Benard (Sonny).

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Rademacher previews: “Carly has made this whole thing public. and Jax wants to keep a lid on it for many reasons.  One is that if something comes out that is bad news for Josslyn, he wants to protect her, and the other is that he knows Carly too well! He doesn’t believe she will give up the search after one conversation with their daughter.”

So, sad to hear Ingo is done at GH?  Excited to see though, on-screen starting next week?  How will Jax impact the Josslyn kidney donor storyline? Comment below!

i hear he loves living in hawaii, so hard for him to return full time if he doesn’t want to give that up, so i’m happy if we get him when he’s able to do it, its sure better then nothing. i just wish the character wasn’t tie to Carly, how next time he comes back he will inter act with more characters, although maybe he will in this run who knows. He’s so hot though, i can’t wait to see him onscreen.

The Josslyn donor story is a total fail..
It is empty, simply empty. I have not even been interested the BLAH ..
But— I am really looking forward to seeing Ingo/Jax !!!!
No matter how sloppy lame he will be written, I really am looking forward to his scenes!

A total fail is right, but YES we get to see Ingo/jax..This dude always has great screen presence regardless of the poor writing given his way.

Back in the day, I though he would have made a good recast of OO7, adjusting his accent to British.

Always though Laura’s Carly was best with him chemistry wise!

Christy
Christy

Goes right along with the failure of revealing what happened with little jakes time away with Helena. Why bother with that weird book Helena gave Elizabeth, and they brought in Kevin to help with Laura and Spenser but no one hypnotized jake to see what he remembers… just odd that that night he “died” and Jos got her mysterious kidney was the same and they choose the boring half of the story to delve into.

YAWN

Patrick

it really would have amped up the story… had the “last” Josslyn been a part of this

Hannah Nordberg… I miss you, bunches and bunches

Carly needs all the help she can

Shay

Agreed, Patrick! I really miss Hannah Nordberg’s “bad seed vibe” take on Joss! That girl was too much fun!

Yes Patrick. I miss “going as CORN for Halloween again this year”

I agree! Boring! Who cares! The Nathan/claudette crap is stupid too. Andre & Jordan are boring and mismatched! What us working is Laura & Kevin!

Rebecca1

They didn’t ever give Jordan and Andre a chance…they give Jordan much more screen time with Curtis who I think she’s REALlY into, which is awkward because he’s seeing her employee/friend Valerie…made all the more confusing because there’s always this undercurrent between
Curtis and Nina…and Curtis with Hayden (which they suddenly dropped). Curtis is the “man around town”…for a new guy he’s already been involved on some level with four ladies…

I think Andre and Jordan’s relationship was to set up a chemistry…push/pull between him and Anna.

Nathan and Claudette could get interesting once Nathan has possible renewed feelings for her…then Griffin finds out she’s in town, etc. I’m giving it a chance.

Making Griffin a priest does nothing for me other than show his inner turmoil. He should have been a Jewish doctor…his mom could have been Jewish and surprisingly there are no Jewish doctors working in the hospital.. Strange….Could have been a good guy but with a bit of a more dynanmic/wild streak like Patrick when he first arrived. As with above, I”m hoping Griffin will be fleshed out more. He’s gorgeous but a tad too mellow….

Ces

I think Jordan is too defensive with Andre. She always has to put up her dukes with him which doesnt come off very well. The elusive woman is ok to play but Jordan is just so exhausting! Now she probably wants Curtis because Valerie wants him. Breaking the friendship code. I think Andre & Anna have more chemistry but not sure if he’s enough for her to move past Duke.

I hate the ex returns to town story with Claudette. It’s more believable with Spinelli since we’re invested in him as a character. Also, as cute as Ryan is, he just cant make this story come alive. Griffin is also SO dull! Hope he’s the hospital killer! Happy that KS is back!!!

GH has too many stories that arent working…. Nina the dlut, Cassadine stupidity, MORGAN again! Make it stop.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

What if Ava, somehow unaware, is the donor??? …that would shock Carly and Sonny…i miss when this show was set in Port Charles…why did they have to change it to Sonnyville-lol

Christy
Christy

Or maybe Franco was a donor… and he gets along with jake because they share kidneys. Te he he

christy

I think Ava being the donor sounds too much like One Life to Live when Todd got Alex Olanov as a donor for Star… but they are similar. Both blonde, both mob involved. 🙂

Im ok with the short visit…just never was a Jax fan-character a bit overrated imho!!!

Triple ditto. Other than his good looks, I don’t get it. A pretty face can only take you so far! Uh-hum Nathan & Griffin! Dull.

I never thought Ingo would stick around. With his home in Hawaii, that’s pretty hard to do.
Maybe GH can come up with short arcs for Jax a little more often though.
I’m glad he’s continuing to do guest appearances on Hawaii Five-O.

christy
christy

Or how about Hawaii on location shots… remember those scenes GH had for puerto rico with Luke, Sonny & Brenda? They used that scene of jumping in the boat as part of the opening montage.

I don’t think that’s in their budget these days…

Once again you are spot on Geeze you are getting this wonderful sarcasm down pat you are almost as good at it as I am! Kudos once again!!!

I have to agree the writing is a bore on GH these days. What bores me: The donor story, Cassadine Island, Kristina’s sex life, Claudette, and Julian. Julian is creeping me out. So glad he is behind bars. I think they should trim the cast. I would have Julian and Ava in prison for many years to come. I love the actors, but their stories are done. I am not missing Olivia. She and Lucas were great confronting Julian.

The only story keeping my interest is the mention of Jeff Webber. The likelihood that Elizabeth and Hayden/Rachel are sisters could be interesting. Does Heather have control of the Raymond Berlin Ponzi scam millions? Will Jeff Webber be making an appearance? RDA that is.

Christy
Christy

I think Berlin paid Heather off to keep quite about the ponzi scheme AND about ElizAbeth and Haydens connection.

So do you think its like the parent trap where two (mrs berlin and rick webber) had an affair and each took a child. Or do you think it was another baby switch decades ago? Or maybe Elizabeth was adopted, and is really a berlin child given up?

So many choices!

christy
christy

Just thinking, elizabeth could be a result of mr berlin affair with her mother.

Elle

His life looks pretty good (via socia medis pics) in Hawaii…and I doubt he’d want to leave his wife and young kids for more than a short trip…so I never expected him to stick around too long. Hopefully his scenes will add some nice drama to this storyline.

Happy to see him AND Jax…not so thrilled to see “them” go but as Aria said it’s known he lives in Hawaii and loves it there. I do agree it’d be great if they could have him pop in more often!

If he is just about to appear on screen and has already finished taping in real life, how long will Jax be on GH?

With everything else going on, the boring stories, starting and dropping the stories, having too many stories, having too many new characters, having long-time actors off screen for a myriad of reasons for too long, I’m exhausted. That doesn’t translate into must-see TV for me.

I’ve not seen much of Jax on GH since I started watching so I don’t have a real investment in the character. However, if you’re bringing in someone like that, that I’ve read had a big following, then I hope it is worth it for the long-time fans.

Ces
Ces

Totally agree! When I’m multi-tasking while watching the GH there is a real problem! I was so busy not paying attention, I looked up to see that Kirsten was Maxie today!! That was a hilight; too bad the story blows!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

GH's Maurice Benard Memoir 'Nothing General About It' Goes Nationwide Today

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
