If you followed Kirsten Storms ( Maxie) of General Hospital last night on her fun twitter page, you may have gotten some clues as to whether or not Storms is getting set for her big return to the soapland!  As many know, the beloved and talented Storm, took a medical leave from the ABC soap several months ago and had been temporarily replaced by actress, Jen Lilley.

Now Kirsten tweeted, “Handled some bizzznaaas today. being a grown up is tiring…AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS!”

Then Storms fans and followers began to question what she meant by her tweet where she next indicated to them,  “You will be happy with this news. (and good guess btw) ….I ‘m trying to give you as many hints that I can without getting in trouble….sssshhhhh.”

Are you excited if Storms is finally on her way back into the action of Port Charles, just as new EP and headwriter, Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati are taking over the PC ship? Let us know!

I’m decdicated to Kristen and (Maxi) because of my commentment to the show. But I will tell you something, her replacement has had to be the one of the HARDEST and MOST SIGNIFICANT in daytime history, because of HOW the role is played. Actress, Jen Lilley. has been remarkable bringing the kind of energy to the character that Kristen does. In fact yesterday, I was on line and I had to STOP and look up to the T.V., because Jen Lilley soundes so much like Kristen. Dorothy Lyman was the 1st Opal on AMC and then Jill Larson took ovver… Read more »

I agree with everything you said. Jen is doing good but there no one like our Maxie. Hurry back Kirsten. You always crack me up.

I cannot wait for Kirsten to come back to GH. The story lines lately have been pretty bad. Kirsten is a great actress and she brings something to the show. Jen Lilley had some big shoes to fill and unfortunately she is no where near the level of Kirsten. She is quite annoying trying to act like Kirsten. It would have been better direction for her to bring her own to the role. I cannot even watch her scenes. As soon as she comes on, I have to fast forward through it. Which is too bad, because I really enjoy… Read more »

I think that Jen Lilley has done an OUTSTANDING job in portraying Kirsten’s, Maxie, as true to form as humanly possible– but we are all looking forward to the day that Kirsten reappears on our screen as Maxie Scorpio Jones!

I may be in the minority, but I prefer Jen Lilley in the part. Her chemistry with the rest of the cast is off the charts and she brings a vulnerability to Maxie that is both heartbreaking and a joy to watch. What she’s done with the character is taken her from ditzy ingenue to neurotic adult and I’ll miss her when she leaves 🙁

This NuMaxie did a great job. But its time for KS to come back and be written as a women with ‘issues’ not as such a scatter brain.

Lilly has done a good job replacing Kirsten, but I can’t wait for Kirsten to return, she is perfect for the role of Maxie.

And so is Lilly. That girl is so good that U can almost forget she isn’t Kristen if you are JUST listening and not watching. It happened to me. I had to STOP what I was doing and look at the televison screen. That has only happened to me once before with a replacement.

I would love it if Kristen can come back soon. She is one of my favorite GH characters. However, I have a feeling that the change in mangament and writers has caused issues,. That might be the reason for the absense of Lucky , Luke and Robin’s characters leaving GH. I hope that the writers will see that this is indeed a bad move as all of these actors have made the roles and characters who they are and NO other actor as been able to replace them.

General Hospital

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.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
