General Hospital

James Franco returning to GH just as Jason & Sam are set to wed!

Courtesy/ABC

Breaking news this morning out of TV Guide! It appears that James Franco is on his way back to General Hospital, yet again!  This time the Oscar nominated motion picture star will be returning to Port Charles as serial killer, “Franco” starting on the September 20th episode, which will coincide with just about the time Jason and Sam are set to finally wed!

Will “Franco” be so jealous of Sam (since he is beyond obsessed with Jason Morgan) that he will do finally do away with one of the lovebirds?

Well, according to TVG, this time Franco’s return is “longterm”! And that means soap fans can see the character on through the fall and possibly longer.   As for James himself, we all know he loves to multi-task and take on so many projects that he can’t even count on two hands.  God knows where he will find the time to do it all,  especially in lieu of the fact that in addition to appearing on GH, he will be debuting on Broadway this fall in Sweet Birth of Youth. But with the magic of soaps, he could tape a week’s worth of episodes and they could be strung out for months!

An ABC rep stated to TVG, “This is the baddie’s “most twisted plan yet” and that he’ll likely be pulling other characters into his web, including ditzy heroine Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and bitch queen Carly Jacks (Laura Wright) and her baby Josslyn.

This will be Franco’s fourth trip to Port Charles.  So what do you think of this storyline development? Are you clamoring for more Franco, or no? Let us know.

I’m okay with Franco coming back but hoping he won’t do anything until after the wedding, Jason and Sam deserve a little time to be happy. Really not sure about “longterm”. So many of the storylines have gone on way too long and become stale and I can’t wait for them to end but maybe with Mr. Wolf now writing it will be different.

I hope Mr. Wolf will write that jason witness sam’s death. Just like Sonny did with Lilly. that will make jason change his life around the lost of his only son and his wife..

I am not looking forward to Franco, I think GH has enough “baddies” with Anthony Z, I was hoping with new writers GH would get back to “love in the afternoon” rather than focusing on the violence that seems to be the show’s focus point for last 10 years

i’m hoping he tries to go after jason’s othr love, Liz, how can franco not know about Liz? so i’m hoping its spread out more, instead of the usual people, so tire of every single plot revolving around Carly. A real good villian would stuff her in a basement somewhere not to be heard for , for months. now thats a real story there, lol

would of been a better plot if franco would reveal that claudia was alive, i miss sarah brown, she made claudia a complex villian who wasn’t appreciated till she was gone. but it wont happen since ms brown is heading to days. which sucks. she belongs at gh .

Welcome back, James Franco, I love it when you hit Port Charles. You always shake things up a lot and make General Hospital very exciting for the short time you are on the show. Can’t wait to see you – and those evil eyes of yours – always letting us know that you are getting ready to do something really evil!!! See you soon, my friend!!!!!

Please don’t bring him back! He is such a terrible actor. Did you not see his Oscars hosting???????

The last time he did anything good was on Freaks and Geeks and that was only good because of Linda Cardelini.

I’m ok with it seeing that Garin Wolf is in and Guza is out. I expect much better SL and material this go round. I don’t find a problem with Franco. James is a great actor. Love everything he’s been in. Past GH? Not so much. I am expecting good stuff from GW and the whole cast!

James Franco can do no harm, however bad. Just because he plays a baddie does not deter me from watchimg him spin his webs so brillliantly. He is fascinating to watch. So bring him on. I’ve been waiting to find out how his story plays out in the end.. Go Franco!…

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline?

Johnny Wactor on Brando’s GH Demise: “I Have Been Blown Away By The Reaction From The Fans, I Had No Idea That You Guys Cared So Much About My Character”

It’s been an emotional week for General Hospital viewers following the death of Brando Corbin; which meant that actor Johnny Wactor has wrapped his run on the ABC daytime drama series.

On Thursday, Wactor shared his ‘thanks’ to all the loyal GH fans who took the journey with him and his on-screen alter-ego via a video post on his Instagram account.

Johnny expressed: “It’s been a couple days since the demise of Brando Corbin in Port Charles as we know it.  And I have to tell ya, I have been so blown away by the reaction from the fans.  I had no idea that you guys cared so much about my character. I’m so grateful for the outpour of questions and support. I’ve always said, that the fans of General Hospital are the greatest fans in the world and I truly believe that and this is just further evidence of that.”

Social media was abuzz when Brando suddenly died following successful surgery after being attacked by the ‘hook’.  Some fans felt Wactor’s presence will be sorely missed; while others shared that they felt Brando was not a necessary character.

Wactor took all of the comments like a champ and in his video message added: “Whether you were excited to see Brando Corbin killed off, or outraged and have questions, man, I’m just so lucky to have been on this show, truly.”

As he concluded his ‘thank you’s’, Johnny let GH viewers know he does have some other projects that you will see him in very soon, sharing: “Thank you so much for letting me bring Brando Corbin to life.  Thank you for caring, and thank you for all the support and the well-wishes for my future endeavors, whether that’s back in Port Charles at some point, or another show, or other films … which there’s some coming.”

Lastly, Johnny added, “I’ll miss ya, and you enjoy the rest of the week.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Brando Dies … But Not From His Wounds

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, poor Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) was hit with yet another punch to the gut.  After losing her baby, Liam, back in December of 20201, she has now lost her husband, Brando (Johnny Wactor), in s shocking turn events that played out in Brando’s hospital room.

Finally coming to (following being ‘hooked’ by the mysterious figure) after surviving hours of surgery from his wounds, he goes coughs up blood and then goes into a massive seizure right in front of Sasha.

Panicked, Sasha calls for help, where Portia (Brook Kerr) and her team run in to try to save Brando.  Next, we get a montage of the love story of Brando and Sasha, which is never a good sign on soap operas – as it more often than not – signals the end of the line for a character.

After Portia is completely rattled by why Brando is dying when the surgery is a success, eventually he passes away.  Portia comes out of his hospital room and tells Sasha they did everything they could.  Just then, Brando’s mom, Gladys (Bonnie Burroughs) along with Nina (Cynthia Watros), come by and all the women are struck with heartbreaking grief.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) happens upon the scene and asks Portia what happened and she reveals there were sudden complications.

Wanting a moment alone to say goodbye to his cousin, Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Brando to take care of Liam and Mike when he sees them in heaven. Sonny also promises to take care of Sasha and Gladys. Next, Sasha wants Sonny to go into Brando’s room with her, and they are joined by Nina and Gladys, who all stand over his bedside in tears.

Elsewhere, Portia finds Finn (Michael Easton) to look over Brando’s medical reports and case, and relates that Brando’s symptoms don’t track with what happened to him when he was brought into the ER and what happened in surgery.  She ponders if there is a more sinister explanation for his death, hoping Finn (even though he is an infectious disease doc) can help shed some light.
