Details have emerged on the upcoming John Reilly tribute episode of General Hospital.  The popular star passed away back on January 21st and the ABC daytime drama series had promised they would deliver a special show dedicated to the man who played Sean Donely starting back in 1984.

According to Deadline look for GH enduring stars: Genie Francis, Kristina Wagner, Finola Hughes, Jon Lindstom and John J. York to all appear in the special episode, along with Reilly’s real-life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, which had been previously announced.

The story will involve the mourning of WSB agent Sean Donely, which will set Felicia Scorpio (Wagner), Malcolm “Mac” Scorpio (York), Anna Devane (Hughes), Laura Collins (Francis) and Kevin Collins (Lindstrom) into a mystery involving Sean’s daughter, Annie (Caitlin Reilly).

General Hospital EP Frank Valentini shared in a statement: “John Reilly was an incredible actor and a large part of the 58-plus-year legacy that is ‘GH’. This episode is meant to honor him and his contribution to the show’s rich history. With so many fan favorites returning, new and longtime viewers will enjoy it. We had a lot of fun filming and I am grateful that we were also able to include his daughter. Viewers will hopefully also enjoy one more surprise return – it is just too amazing to spoil.”

Mark your calendars for May 21st when the special episode is set to air.

So, looking forward to seeing the John Reilly tribute episode, and who do you think will be the big ‘surprise’ noted by Frank Valentini? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Glaringly missing from the character list – Robert Scorpio. Hope that’s an oversight in listing and not a retaliatory tactic for Tristan Rogers telling the truth about the Peter character.

Glad to see Kristina Wagner heading back after not appearing on screen for a year.

Robin has to be the surprise return Frank mentioned. Leslie Charleson should be included – having shared many scenes with Sean during his affair with Monica.

The air date (May 21) marks the one year anniversary of the airing of the final pre-Covid taped episode.

Steve, I agree with you on all counts! So glad that Wagner and York will be included, but Charleson should be there too.

I have been miserable waiting for Kristina Wagner to return for over a year now. Felicia’s business (the Floating Rib) was burned down, Maxie was kidnapped by Anna’s twin, held at gunpoint, she missed her daughters wedding to Peter, Maxie started a new business with Lucy, again and again….no Felicia, and she did not help Lucy with the Nurses Ball. Please powers that be, get Felicia back on screen, we miss her, greatly!!

This is only a partial list. We know Jackie Zeman and Kimberly McCullough are also returning.

Some good suggestions on who else should be around for this story so I am also throwing in Sharon Wyatt (Tiffany) and Jack Wagner (Frisco).

I hope Sharon Wyatt is well and has recovered from her ill health. She will be the beautiful and wonderful Tiffany.

Mr. Fairman, do you have any info that you provide ?

Robert was his best friend, so I’m hoping he’s included too, I don’t recall him being friends w/ Laura, like he was w/Anna, and Felicia and finally, an episode that won’t have nothing to do with Jason and Carly(person whose in everyone storyline). Or will they find a way to put her in the episode?

If Robert Scorpio is not in the episode they missed the boat. Bobbie and Monica should also be included along with Lucas because that is his nephew. Sadly, Tiffany will not be there.

Surprise? hmmm, Jack Wagner is a big name who could return since he shared so many scenes with Sean when teamed with Frisco & Felicia. Others…. Anthony Geary, Emma Samms, Sharon Wyatt, Ian Buchannan, Kimberly McCullough, Jacklyn Zeman, Michael Sutton etc. I wish and dream for Frisco & Felicia to return back on contract. F & F were such a huge part of GH, still friends in real life and raising their two sons, and looking amazingly gorgeous. Proof comes from watching them all these years later on the Hallmark cable channel, as different characters on the show When Calls… Read more »

That wedding scene was amazing. Must of been fun to be on set that day.

Sadly, I doubt we’ll see Jack Wagner anytime soon on GH. His last appearance apparently left a bad taste in his mouth. With Frisco being one of the founding members of the PC Deadbeat Dad Club (along with Jeff and Lucky), it’s kind of hard to work him back into story on a short arc like this.

Mac & Felicia seem end-game, which is alright with me (as long as they’re seen together occasionally).

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
