Agree with bringing Natalie & Liam. Unless GH becomes two hours long lets use our lodgic.

She doesn’t want to move to the West Coast because she’s not sure that GH will be around for very long time.

Heather-don’t be dense here. Family issues are what’s keeping Kassie from GH full time. I’m glad to see her anytime

SO TRUE HEATHER AND TROY!! SHE CN KEEP OUR OLTL FAVS GOING AND ADD SOME SPICE TO TODD’S LOVE LIFE TOO!! GH WAS RENEWED FOR ANOTHER YEAR.

Mixed feelings. Love Blair so much ad I’d like her back full time, but I fear RC will get this wrong.

Debbie

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 a few characters back without telling the correct story is cruel and just plain stupid.

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 watched general hospital for 49 years and there have been wonderful stories through the years when the gangster stuff started it all went to hell in a hand basket I am enjoying general hospital now,and the one life to live characters are doing beautifully blending in.

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.

I hope she stays to, maybe she is staying on the summer because her son is out of school, I don’t know all I know is I am looking forward to seeing her.

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
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?

MBmomof3

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
david

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?

barbara t
barbara t

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. Looking forward to seeing Kassie depava again miss her as Blair.

LOVE IT , LOVE IT , OVE IT now i’m doing the HAPPY DANCE . I we need Victor back too

Gwendolyn

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
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!

emtk

Yay! Yay! Yay! I hope she stays on GH! They still really need Natalie though! It seems crazy that she hasn’t shown up yet!

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.

We are glad to hear that Kassie is coming back but, what about Jack and Sam.

she will only be on gh for a short term so she will be coming alone…

Dorian or Vicki are taking care of them, We really need one life to live back. I want to see All my favorite characters from landview, in landview, on one life to live. It will be so good to see Kassie again and I hope she stays.

rebecca
rebecca

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.

Christy

well, I’ll take a visit from Kassie anytime! I hope she comes for a visit frequently! 😉

barbara t

I hope she stays this time around, looking forward to seeing her once again.

lisa

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.

mary

I hope I’m still watching GH to see her.If Tea and Victor’s baby dies,so does GH for me.

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

Marisa

I agree. Blair would be great at GH.

I love Blair. She’s probably one of my top two favorite OLTLers. Hopefully we’ll get at least a week of her in Port Chuck.

Jared

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…….

SZima

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
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
barbara t

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.

barbara t

Agree, Jared. Long live One life to live. And everything else you said.

love Kassie love the character blair now make her permanent

but she is still going to be their so i have to glad if I get anything

I have to believe that this will led to more but if I get a piece of chocolate

because i am hoping that once they have once piece of chocolate ( that talent kassie)

viewers will want more and they will drive abc and everyone insane until she is back again

ethel

i guess with this baby fiasco going down blair comes to be with her bbf tia & that makes me happy……………

Will be so glad to see her., wish it was permanent. Bring the whole One Life cast to GH or reserect One Life . This was so wrongly canceled. Any network would be so richly rewarded in airing One Life.

rose

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

Chaz
Chaz

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.

Christine

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 hello Good Afternoon America (or whatever the heck they call themselves) and The Chew. Who wants that?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Aiden Continues To Be A Target For Bullies; Oscar Receives His Death Sentence

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, the long-running ABC daytime drama series, is certainly taking a look at some key issues of our time in regards to young children and teens.

When Liz leaves to meet with Willow, about Aiden, Franco and Aiden bake some cookies, where Franco is impressed and surprised to find out how excellent Aiden is in the kitchen and baking assorted kinds of cookies. When Franco asks why Aiden never told anyone that he liked baking so much, Aiden said he just didn’t want to be laughed at again.

At Charlie’s, Liz meets up with Willow. The teacher informs Liz that Aiden still prefers to avoid the other students and may not feel safe around them for a very long time.  Liz questions and ponders why Aiden has a target target on his back. Willow explains how kids can be cruel in an understatement, she adds that Aiden needs to find his true identity.

After Cam’s emotional day surrounding Joss and Oscar, he heads home.  Liz and Cam get their around the same time and are astounded by Aiden’s cookies! Franco tells Liz they just need to let Aiden be Aiden. Then when Cam and Aiden hang out on the couch, and after asking for the password to the iPad, Cameron opens it, and there is a heartbreaking message that reads, “Get Lost Gayden.”   Cam immediately closes it and hugs his little brother.

What happens when you are a teenager who should be living life and having fun with years to look forward to?  That is the other storyline, GH has been taking at look at.  Kim tells Terry that Oscar has questions now that the medical trial has failed, and he needs the truth, no matter how difficult it may be to hear.  On is way to meet with Terry and his mom, Oscar runs into Alexis and tells her he needs to finish his will.  Alexis is heartbroken to hear this news.

Once with Terry and Kim, Oscar asks a few questions about the what to expect as his condition worsens before his death, how to prepare for it, and how long he has to live. Terry explains n some cases headaches get worse, and that he may have difficulty with his balance. Then, Terry delivers the devastating news, he could live as long as 6-7 months … or as little as 6 more weeks.  Oscar is shaken.

Kim hands him a bucket list to-do book and calendar to go to set up all the things he wants to do before he dies.  He heads to meet Josslyn in the hospital chapel, where they pen in things in the book to do together.  Monica and Kim share a moment about losing their children, before they pass away.  Kim does not know what to do next.  She decides to head to the “Charlie’s” to see Julian; while Alexis has already told Julian to help Kim through this tough time, no matter his feelings towards her kissing Drew on New Year’s Eve.

Finally, Griffin removes Anna’s bandages and her eyesight has returned following her surgery.  Finn tells Anna the virus that caused the blindness has never been seen in North America.  Anna wonders if it was given to her while abroad?  Could this be something Cassandra did to her, or something, or someone else?

So, if GH does this story right about Aiden being bullied for his differences, it could definitely send a powerful message to many in the viewing audience and bring attention to young LGBTQ youth who are trying to be their authentic selves, if this is the story.   What do you think of Aiden’s plight now?  What did you think of how Oscar’s death sentence was handled?  Who or what caused Anna’s temporary blindness?  Share your thoughts on these storylines via the comment section below.

Elsewhere, Franco is up to trying to figure out why “Kevin” suddenly dumped him as a patient, and if anyone can come across the lock box in “Kevin’s” office and open it up, therein lies clue to the serial killer’s movesand victims.

But will Port Charles continue to think that “Kevin” is having some sort of breakdown over the anniversary of his twin brother, Ryan’s “death” and heinous killing spree years ago? Will anyone figure out the real Kevin is locked up in a straight-jacket at Ferncliff?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Goes Blind … What Is The Cause? Franco Is Kicked To The Curb As “Kevin’s” Patient

Viewers of ABC’s General Hospital were in for a twist on Friday’s episode, when Anna Devane suddenly and inexplicably goes blind!  It is a terrifying moment for Anna and throughout the first part of this new arc, played beautifully by Finola Hughes.

But what is the cause of her sudden blindness? After Anna is brought to ‘General Hospital’ by her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Finn (Michael Easton) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) are there to try to calm her down and to try to figure out what is wrong with her, Griffin runs some tests.

Meanwhile, Griffin and Finn get into a tiff over Griffin’s lack of bedside manner and his losing his faith. Griffin says its all now about the data, as he is still reeling from Kiki’s murder.

Later, Griffin reveals to Finn and Anna that the tests show that she has experienced a vitreous hemorrhage.  However, he doesn’t know what caused this … or if her vision can be restored.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH co-head writer, Shelly Altman previews of this story for Anna, “What has happened to Anna will lead us to uncover a mystery that affects not only Anna, but several surprisingly unrelated people.”

Meanwhile, Peter meets up with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) at Kelly’s and tells him what happened to Anna and that she suddenly went blind, but to stay away from his mother.. He also has a warning for Valentin, that whatever Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) has on him will come back to bite him sooner than later, and we all know that Valentin hired Sasha to pose as Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) long-lost daughter, and Obrecht knows it!

Courtesy/ABC

And, Franco (Roger Howarth) just may trip upon the lock box in Kevin’s office, that holds the clues to everyone Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has murdered!  How does that come about? After, Franco runs into a gun-toting Ava (Maura West) on the pier, “Kevin” shows up.  He tells Franco he can no longer be his doctor and he will refer him to someone else.  Franco does not want to end his therapy with Dr. Collins, but it’s of no use in changing “Kevin’s” mind.

When Franco makes his exit, Ryan tells Ava that they should leave Port Charles together and never look back.  Then, Franco breaks in to Kevin’s office at GH, and goes looking for his patient file and that is where we see the lock box.  Will Franco figure out what is going down?

So, what do you think is happening to Anna and why?  Is Franco now in dire straits if Ryan finds him rummaging through “Kevin’s” office?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
