I think it’s great. Jack and Kristina are a rating goldmine that General Hospital missed out on. WCTH will a big following for these two.

The Hallmark Channel?

Yawn. Wake me when it’s over.

Well, it seems to me only fans of the actors of Hallmark shows are the ones who watch the channel. The content on the channel is pretty cheesy.

Jess..sometimes “cheesy’s” a nice and relaxing way to drop out of the real world once in a while, especially now..but not everyday.

Right. I like your “not everyday” take on reality. There are people who drop out of reality with their interests and never return. If I had cable I would watch, but only because Kristina Wagner joined and I have always liked Lori Loughlin and her work. I hope it gets picked up for another season.

I have liked her since the get go on General Hospital. I am glad she is starring in something other than GH, however I wish it was on something else and Jack Wagner was not associated. I always thought she would do great in primetime as a love interest for Danno on CBS’s Hawaii 5-0. Pretty weird huh? I know some people would be appalled at the mention of that but hey, why not?

I loved GH when F&F were portrayed by JW/ KW so brilliantly! I had returned to GH for the return of Frisco Jones in 2013 but was so disappointed by the terrible writing exit. So yes, I’m going to finding what channel is the Hallmark and watch my favorite duo/ they are just magical together, even if there characters won’t be together, I can’t way to see them on same show together. I’m thrilled for Kristina bc I feel the lack of s/ l for her character on GH had left so many fans disappointed and we can catch her… Read more »

I will watch anything with Jack Wagner and having Kristina there too now is an even better bonus. Is she staying at recurring status on GH?

This is the best news starting out a brand new year. Jack and Kristina are multitalented actors. They will add wonderful drama and humor on WCTH. I am a “Heartie”,and Jack and Kristina fan, so I will be happy to watch Season 2.

I am very excited about Kristina and Jack working on the same show together. I never really heard of WCTH till Jack came on the last 2 episodes of S1. I will definitely tune in she will make a great addition to the show. I switched to Dish Network just to get the Hallmark Channel because I did not have it with ATT U verse. I bet Kristina will come on as the secret in Bill’s past.

I love them together. There was a spark and chemistry mixed with danger and adventure when they were Felicia and Frisco that GH has really missed over the years. It was still there during their last reunion on GH, even though it was cut short in such an abrupt, unsatisfying way.

I enjoy any program featuring Jack Wagner, but I find it interesting that some 30 years after the initial phenomenon of “Frisco and Felicia” he still has to carry KW for her to be involved in any viable project. Without him by her side, she is just so diminished, despite all efforts to find another romantic, dramatic niche for her on GH. (Having said that, I am sincerely hoping that the idiotic mayoral contest storyline does not go in Felicia’s favor….of all the women in Port Charles, she is one of the last I would choose to run the PTA,… Read more »

While they’re at it, how about getting Lori’s former Edge of Night co-star Charles Flohe/Grant as a guest star???? Loved his Preacher and her Jody together….And if that’s not possible, well then, there’s always John Stamos from Loughlin’s “Full House” days to consider….

I want to encourage anyone who hasn’t to purchase the prize-winning documentary that Kristina Wagner conceived of and brought to fruition with her brother, Joe Crump (they financed this project themselves). Children of Internment is a significant historically driven/historically accurate work that is also beautifully filmed and edited. Watching this made me understand that her talents and gifts are varied and need to be shared on a grander scale. I hope she’s able to fit more movie-making into whatever else it is she chooses to do. sidebar: I am a bit baffled by how much touting of the “Bill/Abigail” pairing… Read more »

I am so excited about this news. I haven’t watched WCTH before, but since I’m a FriscoandFelicia fan since I was 10, I will now. Plus, I love Jack and Kristina together, so to have the opportunity to see them work together again is awesome. The fact that it’s 30 years after they debuted at FriscoandFelicia, and fans are so excited about them being on WCTH together, speaks to the timelessness of their pairing. They were magic together as FnF and that chemistry hadn’t missed a beat when they reunited on GH in 2013. As for Kristina, I’m excited to… Read more »

@JoAnna….I was actually referring to television projects, and I was certainly not discounting the laudable documentary activities of KW. What I meant is that unlike say, Genie Francis, who escaped the fabled “(Luke and) Laura” ingénue stereotype to go on to rack up countless acting credits in both primetime series and assorted soap opera roles, Wagner was primarily left languishing as GH’s Felicia, and no matter who she was paired with after her ex, it lacked the magic of her original coupling with Frisco. There was Colton Shore, Mac, and even a very ill-fated dalliance with Luke. None has ever… Read more »

Hi All…I found this story on an older MF page. Just wanted to add that I am now watching a rerun of the ‘When Calls the Heart’ series, originally on Hallmark 2016. It’s on in my market at 7am every morning as part of my cable package. No streaming. It’s great seeing the episodes with Kristina (Felicia) and Jack Wagner (Frisco) as part of the cast. And if you watch, it a little to close to home since recent events in their lives. Wish they were back on GH together. They represented the best in soaps…romance humor, and adventure in… Read more »

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.

Share your thoughts on the closing of the case on Harrison Wagner’s death, and send your continued condolences to Jack and Kristina via the comment section below.

The Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund notes that if you have a loved one that is in need of help with their substance abuse, please give them call at 888-977-4549 to learn more about the recovery options available.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

Photo: ABC

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Courtesy/ABC

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.
