Fans who have been upset that One Life to Live favorite Kassie DePaiva (Blair) has not been on the Port Charles canvas, but her on-screen daughter, Starr (Kristen Alderson) and on and off again flame, Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) are, take note!   Kassie is set to make a return visit to General Hospital during the summer months.

General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini sent out an exclusive tweet today stating, “You’re hearing it here first… @KassieDePaiva‘s BLAIR will visit #GH this summer!”

So what do you think of a Blair return? Obviously, it’s a visit and not more long term.  Are you cool with that soapers? Let us know!

mixed feeling my foot, Cassie is an exceptional actress and can only make GH much better than it is. Show was ready to be axed until you started adding OLTL to the mix. I have watched all 3 ABC soaps for many many many years so don’t tell me that GH has been having good story lines until recently. I want the OLTL characters to intertwine with GH stories. Bring lots of the characters on intermitinently. Ron please bring closure to the Victor Lord Jr story line, it is cruel how you left all OLTL fans hanging and now bringing… Read more »

Your right Debbie, For many years general hospital had terrible stories, all of them mob related, I to watched all the abc soaps and one life to live was by far the best soap of all of them, I to can’t wait for Kassie Depava to show up on general hospital and I also would love to see the story of 2 todds continue. Ron left that story undone because we were suppose to go to the net and the story would continue there, to bad all p p was is a stall by abc to screw the fans. I… Read more »

Wow, Debbie
Tell us how you really feel. The OLTL characters do add some spice to the show however I’d prefer that the storylines stayed believable and not so much like the 1970’s (switching babies, dead people walking around talking etc.) You seem really angry.
Just saying.

This is exciting news for me, a general hospital and one life to live fan, Blair, Kassie depava belongs with Todd and Star, and this One life to live fan is happy that my Manning family stays together, at least I think todd and blair get together, who knows maybe the story of Two todds will continue, Tea, Blair, Todd, star and John have to find out at some time Victor is alive. She is a good actress and can’t wait for her to be in Port charles. Let the comments begin.

GH has became watchable again because of the OLTL characters! I stopped watching because of too much mob crap & now it’s getting better. Too bad it probably won’t last too long since ABC now has it eyes on killing GH too!

barbara t
Guest
barbara t

It is good again and we need for the ratings to up even higher.I feel like you do I am worried that abc is going to cancel general hospital I don’t trust them why did they replace the revolution with more garbage news show? That move makes no sense once Katie couric show starts where do they put general hospital?

Totally Cool! I don’t think all the great characters need to be on contract. I know they can be difficult to schedule if they aren’t on contract, but c’mon, with the industry being what it is, having them on short term as the storyline dictates is great for the fans. i’d rather see Kassie/Blair here and there than not at all. I’m a BIG fan.

WE NEED VICTOR/TREVOR STJOHN ,AND FOR TEA AND VICTOR’S BABY TO BE OK.

david
Guest

It’s always nice to have Kassie/Blair present, but I wonder how long we will be tortured over these babies. It’s depressing to think about Tea’s baby dying, especially after the deaths of Jake and Robin. Real life is bad enough with senseless killings, suicides, and unnecessary deaths. Can’t anyone on a soap give birth to a healthy baby and be happy? When was the last time viewers enjoyed happiness vicariously on GH?

Something is going to happen with these two babies, now that crazy Heather is involved she seems to get into everyones lives I don’t want to see her leave but she needs to go back to shaddy brook. I also wonder how did Anthony get that big smile on his face? the last time he was alive he was in shock not believing Johhny would kill him and it was far from a smile Even though I did like the weekend at the guartermaines, well, Maybe for a few hours, Then Somehow Heather takes him for a drive.

YES! I am SO thrilled that Kassie is coming back – Blair should have stayed when she arrived months ago! Excited to see Blair again, more Blair and Carly I hope and of course – Todd and Blair! Should be great. Hoping this turns into a long-term stay. Kassie will rock it – can’t wait to see her return to GH!

Debbie Harris

All I can say is YAY!!! Finally, Blair gets to come back to GH!! It is hard for me to watch Starr and Tea without having Blair there too. Especially with the storylines with Starr being in jail. We OLTL fans Know that Blair would ave been there with her daughter! Love Kassie Depaiva & her Blair character! Wish she would get put on contract but some Blair is lots better than no Blair!

Loved the Blair and Carly scenes and hope they will develop a friendship. Enjoying the visitors from Llanview, but do not want them to over-run Port Charles. Keep the integrity of GH and the characters while adding a little bit of OLTL on occasion.

great that she’s “visiting.” as far as I understand (not sure if this is so but it’s what I read) she didn’t want a contract because she didn’t want to relocate with her family to California.

I’m glad Kassie will be visiting…it would be wonderful if it was permanent ,but then Jack and Sam would have to come to Port Charles too.
It would only make sense.

We all love and miss our OLTL family terribly.
But in fairness the more OLTL characters that are brought on – the less the show is GH.

Just my own opinion.

GH needs Kassie/Blair badly. The show needs a center, she would be perfect.

VERY good news. I love Kassie and Blair. Ron & Frank have made me a true believer of their talents. I love how they picked this show up off the dusty floor, dusted it off, and made it great again. I hope they bring on more ONE LIFERS. Also, I’m loving how Sonny is being portrayed more like the selfish jackass he is. Long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE…….

OLTL has been cancelled! Do not continue to litter GH with that show’s leftovers.

I know many of you would like to see more and more OLTL characters on GH, but then it wouldn’t be GH any more, would it? I don’t mind an occasional visit, but that’s all that’s needed…as long as it is STORYLINE DICTATED.

And as far as CarTini is concerned, they are just doing re-runs of old shows with new characters. They haven’t had an original idea since they come to GH.

Scott

I agree with this post. GH’s quality is much improved since the new creative team took over. ABC cancelled the wrong show. At least a wrong is being partially corrected by merging One Life to Live with General Hospital. It seems they are focusing on the legacy GH characters more while integrating favorites from One Life to Live.

barbara t
Guest

Ok scott, I have to ask, Are you the old or the new Scott, I can’t believe you are saying this, the old scott hates one life to live and he would never, ever, says things are looking up in Port charles and the quality has improved on General hospital. I am in shock. But I will say I agree with your post, everything you are saying is true, General hospital is so good again, I enjoy watching and love the way the writers are integrating our wonderful characters from one life to live in Port charles.

love that they are bring Kassie back she is an incredible talent and I love the character of Blair. I hope they write for her. Starr needs her mom blair and I am looking forward to some todd and blair interaction who knows where it will lead but I have not been excited about General Hospital in a long time Bravo Ron and Frank and ABC for finally getting some brains and bringing the talented Kassie back to GH

It will be good to see Blair in action again. I think this is a smart way to handle things with some of the OLTL characters….short arcs that drive story. Have said before that bringing on familiar faces makes good sense as long as they work within the plot.

For a while I thought Natalie would be coming on but, now I don’t think that will be happening. Seems Melissa Archer is getting film work. I guess there will be an off-screen or telephone break-up of Natalie & John.

This isn’t so much a comment on Kassie Depaiva’s brief return as it is about a rumor I am hearing. I keep hearing about GH’s demise – this time set for the middle of January. But this bit is interesting in that it could be GH or THE CHEW. I think it is IMPERATIVE that all of us do NOT watch anything but GH on ABC daytime. Take it with a big boulder of salt, but if GH gets better ratings, than The Chew could be sold into syndication and GH could stay. Otherwise it is bye bye, GH and… Read more »

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

Courtesy/ABC

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Courtesy/ABC

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Charles Shaughnessy Takes Over the Role of GH’s Victor Cassadine

GH fans were in for a major surprise when on Thursday’s episode a kidnapped Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) got the shock of her life when her former lover, Victor Cassadine turned out to be alive and well and holding her hostage.

But there was another twist! DAYS favorite, Charles Shaughnessy (Shane), who previously was announced as coming to GH but in a mystery role, revealed himself to be … the new Victor Cassadine!  The former Mr. Sheffield of The Nanny has stepped into the role previously played by DAYS Thaao Penghlis (Tony).

Once the cat was out of the bag, in a tweet, Shaughnessy shared: “So excited to FINALLY be able to reveal details of my latest “gig”. 37 years on, I am back in the halls of @GeneralHospital, playing with the incredible @gatitweets. Having once been a vampire on @DisneyChannel, it’s not surprising I bring #VictorCassadine back from the dead!”

Shaughnessy is referring to the time he previously played Holly Sutton’s cousin, Alistair on the ABC daytime drama series back in 1984.

General Hospital viewers recall that Liesl shot and “killed” Victor back in 2014 then played by Penghlis.  In story, Victor believed he was the bio-dad of her son, Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). But a DNA test said that was not true, yet she shot him.  Leaving viewers wondering who is the dad? Hmmm.

So what did you think of the shocker? Shaughnessy as NuVictor Cassadine? Comment below.
