General Hospital

Luke to Tracy on Yesterday's GH: "Oh Tracy, Sadly One Life to Live Isn't On Anymore!"

If you were quick enough to pick up another “Carlivati” special on yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, you noticed that during a scene between Luke (Anthony Geary) and Tracy (Jane Eliot), over how Tracy will get ELQ back with the help of  “Pickled Lila,  she grabbed for the television remote in the Quartermaine living room.

When Tracy pressed it to surf the channels, Luke said, “Oh Tracy, sadly One Life to Live isn’t on anymore.”  To which Tracy responded, that she wasn’t looking for that, but for the financial channel to check ELQ stock prices.  Of course, Tracy did not get far, as when she turned on the TV, Luke learned that Anna had been held at gunpoint earlier in the day by vampire slayer, Lucy.

When we heard Luke calling out the cancellation of One Life to Live, we couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear, that leave it to the current GH regime, they are still paying homage to the beloved soaps and its fans, and the fact that it the series is gone from the ABC Daytime landscape.

If you missed yesterday’s episode, you can watch it here via ABC.com and check out around the 15:15 minute mark for the exchange between Tracy and Luke.

Did you notice Luke’s nod to One Life to Live?  Let us know your thoughts!

I called in on GH comment line and suggested that they offer Prospect Park free product placement for use of their characters to come back to GH…With the shout out about OLTL, I am thinking that ABC will be doing this.I suggested that The younger people talk about OLTL and being able to watch it online and see them watching it on their ipad, etc..

loved it. i enjoy those little things. i wished Luke said it louder so ABC heard it too. Frank and Ron better get an emmy for their work here, or somethings wrong. other shows could learn from them.

Since ABC is part owner of Hulu, maybe it it ABC that wants the crossovers. If more people watch PROSPECT PARK’S OLTL, they might also tune in to GH. No one is saying yet what exactly is happening to the characters.

I saw it and was kind of shocked! I couldn’t imagine why Luke would say it and why they would write it in. Just thought it was odd.

Had PP gotten all their ducks in a row in February 2012, FV/RC would be writing STILL for OLTL. It was when PP deal fell thru that ABC picked them up as producer and writer. They both get kudos for having OLTL as ABC #1 soap when it went off the air, so I’m sure they still believe OLTL is still partially their baby!

FV & RC were hired by GH long before the end of OLTL. How do you know they would have hired FV & RC? why would they want them they suck and you gh fans will fins that out soon enough!!

Loved it! Love how GH and OLTL are blending and sharing the best of both worlds. Keeping the craft alive….awesome! 🙂

I agree. Do you remember back in the day when they did cross-overs? They did it all the time………IT WAS GREAT! I can see Anna hot on the trail for an escaped Lucy heading for Llanview after Caleb, and Anna finding out that there have been mysterious deaths where the cause of death was “loss of blood” and there’s only 2 puncture wounds. Somehow, John is allowed bail and he is also heading for Llanview behind Anna…………..Oh, could be oh so good.

I love when RC treats us with his ”mentions” .. He has never forgotten ‘his’ OLTL ..
When I heard Luke say, “Oh Tracy, sadly One Life to Live isn’t on anymore.” that gave me my first chuckle of the day .. 🙂

Yes, I caught it, but was surprised Tracy comeback was about that she wasn’t looking for OLTL, and that if she was, she would have be grabbing her laptop since it was moving online !

Now that was be a great way to cross promote the shows in my opinion.

Shawn

I caught it too lol. Yeah it’s not on TV anymore it’s on Hulu and Hulu Plus! Watch out Port Charles because Llanview is coming back!

Actually, since OLTL happens in the universe of GH, Luke should have told Tracy that Fraternity Row was no longer on the air – but that might have been too inside.

Alan
Alan

that’s what i was thinking. In the General Hospital universe, Llanview is a real town with real people, three of which currently live in Port Charles. He should have said Fraternity Row was no longer on the air, to be more realistic. But i suspect this was a subtle dig at ABC for cancelling OLTL. I remember one episode of OLTL in the final months, Blair sang the 1980’s theme song and then at the end she pointed out how sad it was.

Oh I caught it alright! Do you think abc will run any ads for AMC & OLTL once they launch online?

Alan
Alan

Prospect Park will have to pay for the ads but if they are smart they will do just that. They should buy advertising time during all four remaining soaps and maybe the View.

caught it….loved it

Patrick

doesn’t it seem like it’s “Pickled Lila” that is the “missing” shares of ELQ?

I’m going to burst in to tears, when Tracy… realizes just how loved and as the last remaining sibling of Edward and Lila…. she is.

Caught it, loved it, rewound & played it again! Love the cross overs. Even way back when all the shows were on the air, someone from Llanview would mention Pine Valley or vice versa. But yeah, loved Luke saying that.

I caught it replayed it and then taped it on my iPhone and emailed it out to my sisters who used to watch theses shows in the 80’s.

I thought it was rather clever and funny! I still want Todd, John and Star to stay on GH, but I will check out OLTL out of curiosity… Just not sure I will stick with it….

I had the same grin and loved the way the shout-out was so seamlessly worked into the script! Kudos!

Had to rewind my DVR to see if I heard it correct! I did and I loved it! I think most of us fans will always enjoy those little nods…

Yes, absolutely loved the nod to OLTL.

Product placement for PP on GH is a great idea, but I still don’t know that I will pay to watch the PP shows online. This may well be the way future shows are made available to viewers, not via television but as online subscriptions.

Product placement is a great idea.. Desperate house wives did it with Nissan cars.. I will def pay to see oltl on Hulu

Dianne

yes. caught it and loved it. I am really enjoying the crossovers. my daughter and I love Starr on GH and that she is with Michael (though we were sad about Cole and Hope). I like Todd there too and was hoping he would reunite with Blair on GH. while here, I am LOVING all the returning loved characters. Frisco!!?? WOW. Heather, Felicia, Lucy, KEVIN!!, Laura, Robert, Holly, Anna, DUKE!!, AJ!!, Ned. The gang’s all here! Whose left? Scotty, Bobbie, Tiffany,, Sean. and I would love to see Ned, Lois & BrookeLynn together at the same time. One of the reasons I enjoyed GH in the 80s were all the power couples and how they were all friends and fought the bad guy together not each other. So sad Alan is gone.

Patrick
Patrick

of your list…. the one that took me by surprise…. and i didn’t expect it.

when Frisco walked in to the bar… and said hello to Felicia….

it was like going back in time…. the instant chemistry was there…. the way Felicia responded was priceless…. i was startled and stunned by the electricity, between these two.

—————-

and all this time… i was rooting for Mac and Felicia.

—————-

further in to the story…. Frisco tells Felicia he wants her back… and Felicia’s telling Frisco…. she wanted a reconcilliation with Maxie much sooner than it happened and told Frisco to not give up…. and with time…..??????

——————-

A new tryst and/or triangle…. with the past STARs… I was genuinely impressed.

Patrick
Patrick

oh, and another thing…

Ned and Lois.

Hot, Hot, Hot.

they’re on my wish list.

This show has just gotten stupid since the idiots from OLTL took over.

I normally like the little comments like when Todd said something about America not needing another daytime talk show, however I didn’t like this, considering that we have crossover characters and Llanview is often referred to as a real place they shouldn’t have mentioned OLTL.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
