Kimberly McCullough and Brooklyn Rae Silzer Make A Return To GH!

Courtesy/ABC

Looky who was back on the set of General Hospital!

According to a tweet with a photo from executive producer, Frank Valentini, fan favorites Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) were back on set filming new episodes.  Could it be that Emma and Robin are back for the annual Nurses’ Ball?

Valentini tweeted, “Late night shenanigans with these two beauties. #GH #Wrappizza

Hopefully this means that Brooklyn will be performing in a new production number and Kimberly will be making a moving speech for the annual Port Charles gala.

So, glad to hear there will be some Robin and Emma on the way?  No dates yet as to when they will air, but we would expect its sometime in May.

Come on back–anytime! Always lovely to see them both.

Wish they would stay on GH both are great assets. Love ❤️

Indeed great to see them both, but they’re just part of the spinning revolving doors at GH, unfortunately. Hilary B. Smith came on the show, many of us hoping he’d be the new D.A. She played Valentin’s attorney for several days and that was it.

Now Jax it back, but he’s heading out the door again, too. Rather than having some talent and great characters roles like these two could play, ABC is paying the girl from Turkey and Amy the gossipy nurse and…. Good grief. Disappointing.

I look forward to seeing these two beauties. I am sad to lose Jane Elliott, but I am happy her exit story is moving along. I feel that the network serials (all 4) need to speed up their story telling to compete with steaming services I love that I can find so many favorite old shows to stream. I only watch GH and if story drags I can and do not watch for two weeks at times. I read the synopsis and decide what I want to watch.

Wouldn’t it be great if they would stream our serials episodes from years past. Someone run with this idea.

Great post. Would love to stream Port Charles, in particular. The book-format would make it the best candidate to stream

This is good news BUT…GH has been nearly unwatchable lately. I love GH; GH is my soap and I have watched for decades. They have the best cast in daytime. However the current writing team may be the worst in the history of the show. Poor Jane Elliot’s exit story as Tracy is a contrived abomination. The usual reliable casting director has bombed big time with the actress playing the Turkish woman. I have never seen such an abysmal performance on a soap. Practically all stories are re-written on the fly when major inconsistencies are revealed. Follow through on story arcs is willy-nilly. A lot of dialogue is just plain awful. Any time you write a scene where a major talent like Michael Easton talks to a lizard you should be embarrassed. So many painful non-stories are being dragged out that it is a trial to watch and endure. I tune in every day to see these amazing actors and also out of loyalty and habit. Mostly I do not enjoy what I am seeing. Again, I say all this because I am a major fan of the show and want it to thrive and continue into the future. Please somebody, step in and fix this mess!

Yeah, I basically agree. I have watched “GH” off and on since 1980. This current batch of writers just don’t have what it takes. Although there are some good individual moments here and there, overall the show is boring.

Completely agree Mister Media…. THE WRITING IS ATROCIOUS ‼️‼️‼️

Jane’s exit story is awful, unbearable to watch and I am sorry, the Turkish woman creeps me out. I can’t watch it! I don’t care about the woman, her child, etc. I care about the Quartermaine’s. The Q’s could banter and squabble for the next month, all during Jane’s exit, and I would enjoy that, welcome that, instead of this atrocious story arc.

Saaaaameeera has uncanny resemblance to Octomom, the personality of a dead log and only whispers her lines.

I’m all for more Qs. But she’s a Firm No.

“Contrived abomination ” pretty much says it all, Mister Media!!!! And that goes far beyond just Tracy’s swansong story! Quite honestly, watching Michael Easton’s Finn romancing his “service lizard” would be more exciting than most of the hum-drum happenings occurring in Port Charles these days….particularly the arrival of that not-so “Turkish Delight,” Samira, or as I prefer to call her, “Sabs the Second!”

I figured they would be back for the NB. If Kim wanted to return full time they should just recast Patrick. JT will NEVER leave Y&R for GH!

I love Jason Thompson on Y&R, major on-screen chemistry with Gina Tognoni (Phyllis). I only watch the show in anticipation of their scenes, and Eileen Davidson (Ashley).

Jason is fitting in well there. Not a fan of him and Phyllis, though.

Always welcome. Robin is the de facto heart and soul of the show.

This return has to be for the Ball. I have always loved watching that in the years they did it. All the performances are always so good and it brings a change of pace to the show which I also like. Looking forward to this year to see what Lucy puts together!!!

Been watching GH for years and I live the show. But I’ve been really disappointed lately. The Nelle kidney story was silly. Why would Jax go to Frank Benson for a kidney?? Crazy!!

Mary SF
Mary SF

And it still doesn’t explain why Jake was taken by Helena-or how- if they thought Jake was the donor all these years, why would Jax’s seek out Frank Benson– unless he sought him out before Jake die, yet when Jake died wouldn’t Jax’s say– hey I already got a kidney–how does Jake fit into the Jax’s buying a kidney story– the two story threads do not mesh– It would have made more sense if Jerry Jack’s was involved- that Jax’s went to him for a kidney– at least Jerry and Helena have a connection — they fake Jake’s death, kidnap him for whatever reason they still haven’t said– and substitute Nelle’s kidney for what everyone thought was Jake’s– but who were these doctors and how was this switch was made, is still unclear— as you said this story line is plain crazy

SO stupid and the whole rewrite of how Carly thought the kidney came from Jake Webber. Just SO stupid.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING BOTH OF THEM….GH NEEDS SOME NEW BETTER TALES SO LETS USE THESE TWO….

I’m happy to see that GH characters are being brought back…if not permanently then at least more so than we’ve had in recent years. Jax, Bobby, Scott, Lucy, Robin, Ned, Olivia Jerome…I’d like to see them all on contract but I know that’s not going to happen. So it’s fun and welcome whenever any of these “peeps” pop up in town. It adds to the continuity and just as in life, friends and family come and go. I love “returns”. I’d STILL like to see AJ brought back…I really don’t care what lame excuse they invent. Hmph! 🙂

Agreed, love little Emma Drake. Brooklyn could teach a few of the adult actors a few tricks of the trade; she’s got more talent than some of the adults on the show.

Watching a movie with Tyler Christopher /Nick I absolutely loathe what they have done to long time veterans not interested in this show do not care if our network ever picks abc up again ! FV treats the oldies like crap but we get non stop air time from his buddies who over act on every turn

Glad to hear that they are returning. I think everyone needs to lay off on the criticism of the writers. Great actors cannot just look at the screen and get nominated or even win an Emmy without the words of the writing team. And GH continues to dominate the top Emmy nominations with wins in the past few years. My Emmy picks:
Best Drama: B&B (will win) or GH (should win)
Best Actor: Senior Steal Peter Bergman (Y&R) or Scott Clifton (B&B)
Actress: Nancy Lee Grahn or Laura Wright from GH (toss it up) – Only Gina Tognoni (Y&R) could steal it.
Supporting Actor: Chad Duel (GH)
Supporting Actress: Finola Hughes (GH)
Younger Actor: Bryan Craig (GH)
Younger Actress: Chloe Lanier or Lexi Ainsworth (GH) toss it up
Writing: B&B or GH

All we have left of GH is a few good scenes here and there so I’m sure KMc and Brooklyn will supply us with some of those. The good part is I have lots of time on my hands to do other things besides trying to figure out what the story is that they’re trying to write on this show.

Off topic, but is Michael Fairman okay? There hasn’t been a new news post in six days. I hope he’s alright.

Haha…I was wondering what was going on, too! I was thinking he was concentrating on his newfound music career!

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Coinrthos) had been teasing on social media that he was about to debut on Sunday.  Well, it’s here! Benard has launched his brand new website, MB’s State of Mind (www.mbstateofmind.com).

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

Courtesy/ABC

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
