Kendrick Cross Debuts as GH’s Detective Bennett

If you caught yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, there was a new detective on the beat, when ‘The Hook’ tried to take out both Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud).

Enter former Ambitions star, Kendrick Cross. The actor most-known to soap fans for his role as Titus Hughes on the OWN soap opera, took to his Instagram to announce his gig in Port Charles.

Kendrick shared the casting news, expressing: “Welp I guess the news is out!!! Might as well let ya know that ya boy is on General Hospital.  Been holding on to this secret for weeks lol huge huge shout out to @entlab.la they saw the vision and hopped right on board!!! It’s only going up from here… New episodes coming soon…!!! #LetsGo”

Look for Cross to be recurring on the ABC daytime drama series.   In addition to his role on GH, look for Kendrick to make a guest-star turn in the upcoming January 17th episode of the new ABC crime drama Will Trent.

Now the question is, will Detective Bennett fare better than the other cops and investigators at the PCPD, where somehow criminals slip through their fingers every single time? Time will tell.

So, what did you think of Kendrick’s debut on GH?  Comment below.

I wonder if he’ll be coupled with Jordan? I think they’d look good together. Maybe it would be a secret romance in jeopardy because of them working at the police station.

Why do we need another detective? Put Chase back on the beat.

I agree, Jacqueline. Traditionally the PCPD is just there to provide unintentional laughs, particularly the denser- than-dirt Dante. This guy seems like another waste of space. Let’s have Chase back..at least he’s a good person.

Soaphound
I think they only reason they keep Dante is that he’s Sonny’s son and the friction their relationship causes. I can’t stand him and Sam together. I thought they might grow on me with time but still don’t see anything there. Yes, put Chsse back where he belongs, which certainly isn’t with that controlling Brook Lyn.

while I will agree that Brooklyn is controlling, I do really love Amanda Sellton in the role. She was also wonderful in her Gossip Girl role, back in the original series. I would love to see her and Tracy ( Jane Elliott ) have a big storyline together. It is very humorous when she refers to her as “granny”

HaHaHa—-unintentional laughs!! Good one, Soaphound. I consider Dante a marionette (and,anyone who says “should have “went” instead of should have “gone” is a goner to me) —then coupled with Sam?—- my-oh-my!! The most boring couple on TV—and her voice!! I don’t know which is more irritating —hers or nuTrina’s.

I am bored near to death with the hook story..
It was stupid from the git-go..
Whoever came up with that waste of air-time story should
be sent to Siberia..
A hook killer BWAA HAA for gawdsake–

LOL. Su—-it’s sort of twisted/ironic poetic justice because to me the hook symbolizes Ryan’s missing hand.

Hi Celia –Loooong time, hope all is well and happy in your life 🙂
The hook sucks LOL it’s not exciting, not suspenseful, no drama,
it’s just showing us a hook=lame.
a total snooze..
-it’s merely a way to get rid of characters..-

The show had a perfectly good policeman in Rory and I wish he could come back.

Well if Rory gets to come back from being dead… then so does Britt ? Unless the entire hook storyline is nothing more than a bad dream sequence… Dallas got away with eliminating an entire season doing this…so perhaps GH can too.

On a semi-related note, did I miss something regarding the poison Selina gave Victor? Talk about a nothing-burger!

Bill W
Don’t think it’s been mentioned since, gosh I hate that man

I know., Bill—What happened with that??

For real I was thinking the same thing.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spinelli Serenades Maxie Then They Kiss! Are you in Favor of a ‘Spixie’ Reunion?

Spixie fans finally got their wish, sort of, on Thursday’s February 22nd episode of ABC’s General Hospital.

While Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have been each others orbit and married to other people, have had children, and been each other’s best friends, it’s apparent that they belong together, or do they?

In story, Spinelli took to the stage on Karaoke night when he, Maxie, Cody (Josh Kelly) and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) went out together.  When Spinelli sang, it featured a touching solo performance by Bradford Anderson, where Spinelli wears his heart on his sleeve for Maxie.

Maxie is all smiles watching Spinelli sing, and afterwards he walks towards her. The two talk about his living situation and how he would do anything for her. Maxie says she always knows she can count on him. She admits she loves listening to him sing to her, and she loves having him around. Spinelli says he considers her more than a friend. The two eventually share a kiss, but Maxie runs away.

The pick-up of the story happens on next week’s Tuesday, February 27th episode when in teasers, Maxie and Spinelli get closer.

Looking at the history of Spixie: they first got together from 2008-2010 when they were engaged. Then, in 2013 the duo had a one night stand. Next, they dated again in 2015, and flash-forward to 2024, and it looks like Maxie and Spinelli might be willing to try their romantic relationship one more time.
