Jimmy Fallon Has Fun With GH Milking Character Reactions During Baby Connie Custody Hearing!

In a hilarious few minutes of Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue on last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host began a comedy bit by saying how upset he was over the online cancellation of All My Children the other week, and so he is now looking for a new soap opera to watch, but also how much he loves his General Hospital! Fallon then says that even on GH, they milk people’s reaction to big news and then launches into a clip from baby Connie’s custody hearing when Maxie is on the stand and Alexis brings up that she was a murderer!

And what ensued was the facial expressions and reactions, one after the other, of the characters in the courtroom without speaking, with the help of some clever editing!  Watch the reactions of Port Charles citizens: Lulu, Alexis, Maxie, Felicia, Spinelli and more! Three of our favorites were Franco and Carly, and Dante!

This was a very fun way for a late night show to pay homage to the soaps, and GH, and to take a look at one of the staples of soapdom  … those lingering prolonged looks and reaction shots!  Watch the Jimmy Fallon monologue that contains the GH courtroom custody drama after the jump at about 1:19 minutes into it! And then let us know, whose reaction gave you the best chuckle?

Missed opportunity… I would have made it even longer. We had the Maxie/Lulu court case one episode, and the AJ/Connie murder case the day after. They could have used courtroom staring from AJ, Monica, Michael, Kiki, Liz (who also testified against Maxie earlier, and came back for the AJ trial to testify against him), Diane appeared at both trials, Sonny appeared at both, Scott Baldwin…. Plenty of opportunity to stretch it out!

Can’t stand Jimmy Fallon and the bit wasn’t all that funny.
The saxophone was soooo lame and he laughs way too much at his own “jokes,” if you can call them that. I mean, Leno is lame too, but this guy will take the Tonight show off the air for good once he’s in charge.

Pure soap………I love it……….and the fact that he mentioned AMC too…….thanks Jimmy!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
