Great news this morning!  Fan favorite, Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine) who was dropped from the canvas is on her way back to the series.

Charleson last evening via sent out series of tweets from her twitter account which stated, “Monica’s back! Look for her to stir things up in July! For those of you who haven’t been watching, come back! AND she is MAD! Once again secrets have been kept from her. Remember all those things you all have been mad about her not knowing?? Well, NOW she KNOWS! Look for her to stir things up starting in July! SHE IS BACK!”
Could this be one of the first orders of business from new GH head writer Garin Wolf…. to return some of the old faves to the fold?  Stay tuned and welcome home Leslie! We have missed you.

I couldn’t be happier to have Leslie back. I’ve been calling GH comment line and begging for scenes with Jason and Monica for a long time. Sam’s character always encouraged their relationship and I’d hoped for more bonding between Jason & his mom every since Jason and Sam reunited. I sure hope this is a sign of more to come from Garin with our fav legacy characters! Leslie’s Monica adds a sense of much needed familial depth and history to the show. It just doesn’t feel like a true Quartermaine family scene without her.

I am thrilled Monica is going to be back on the canvas and involved in story. I do wonder if it has anything to do with the new head writer…when does his vision of GH begin to air?

If anything was going to get me to start watching gh when oltl ends….this could be it. I stopped watching after the Qs became supporting players. This is a step in the right direction. Now can we get Jason to be hit on the head and forget that he is mobster.

Is this the beginning of the end?? With AMC and OLTL going, are the fan favs returning to GH to possibly save it from the axe or is this a pre-emptive strike to say goodbye without giving fans notice? I hope it is the former. The writing needs to go back to be hospital centralized not mob centralized.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
