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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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

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… Read more »

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! 🙂

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… Read more »

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.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
