Another newbie is coming to the younger hospital cast of characters when Marc Anthony Samuel joins General Hospital in the the contract role of Felix, a nursing student friend of Sabrina (Teresa Castillo).  Look for Samuel to first air on the Tuesday, December 4th episode!

From what he hear, Felix will be integral role in helping return the annual Nurse’s Ball charity event to General Hospital.   And, we have also heard some speculation and some rumblings that this new character may be part of an under-represented segment of characters on daytime, in more ways than one!

Primetime drama series fans may have caught Samuel this past week on NCIS on CBS as he appeared in two-part guest appearance of the popular police procedural drama!

So are you looking forward to seeing to hopefully getting the Nurses Ball on track and up and running?  Do you like Sabrina?  Even though Robin has Patrick’s heart, do you think Sabrina should get her chance on a date with Dr. Drake (Jason Thompson)? Do you hope Felix is a good guy, who helps Sabrina pull of the Nurses Ball? Let us know!

I like Sabrina a heck of a lot better than I like Britt, but no go on Patrick. I will forever love Robin and Patrick and want them to be together.

Do we think he is going to be gay???

He’s a male nurse. Probably gay.

Hopefully the new character is gay,something we haven’t seen on GH since Lucas left.

Is Lucas coming back?

Would love Lucas and BOBBIE!!!!! to come back. Please… Give me some Bobbie Spencer!

Makes sense with Nurses Ball and its role as an AIDS charity that Port Charles would have some gay people in the hospital halls.

Ugh. More newbies. Like there isn’t enough good stories to tell with the vets. Sanrina gets on my last nerve and Brit is just a jump magnet.

This is what frustrates me with Frank Valentini, he loves hiring newbies, nothing wrong with new characters, but the set he gets always cannot act, even since OLTL. He is doing good so far, why screw it up? Relax the budget with the current cast and vets we have.

SUSAN
SUSAN

agree need to focus on budget and vets we love to see

I wish shows would concentrate on the vets and quit bringing in random newbies. My god, GH brought in Britt, Sabrina AND Ellie all in the same frigging day and they equally all annoy me and I wish all three would leave. And no, they can’t act.

SUSAN
SUSAN

i agree they all 3 should leave asap

MOST newbies can’t act when they get a job on a soap. But, it’s great training ground for them. This is a job to them, usually their first. Give them a break (although Jack on OLTL’s acting WAS unbearable…)…

Is he an alien?

Must be, we haven’t had any of those since DOOL!

I’m wondering – with Edward’s passing ….if this young man Felix doesn’t turn out to be another Quartermaine relative via Edward’s relationship with Mary Mae Ward.
………hmmmmm ?

Excellent possibility Lisa! He could be Justice’s son???

I happen to love Sabrina & her interaction with Britt who is so mean. I thought it was really funny when Emma told Sabrina she didn’t like Britt! And of course we want Robin home with Patrick I would much rather have Patrick with Sabrina after a long slow sweet courtship than jumping in bed with shallow awful Britt.

Cindy
Cindy

I like Sabrina and Felix. Definitely can do without Brit! She is a two-faced witch! LOL I would rather see Patrick with Sabrina. We know Robin isn’t coming back anytime soon, because Kimberly is concentrating on her directing career. That’s why she left in the first place. So, as far as anyone currently on the canvas, I think Patrick and Sabrina, Liz and AJ… although they may hook up AJ with Sam… hmmmmm lots of possibilities!

Need more One Lifers on the show…Not new people..

Ditto.

Ces

would rather see more prominent OLTL characters than random newbies any day of the week — or hey, how about more airtime for vets we already care about?? It’s quite obvious the whole Christina/Trey thing didn’t work so why do they think we’ll care about another bad actor?

Robert
Robert

Agreed, more OLTL charachter, no more newbies!

Cindy

I agree, however, I can see them bringing in Sabrina and Felix to spearhead/launch the Nurses’ Ball storyline. And OLTL didn’t have any nurses. I would love to see Rex and Gigi back!!

Marisa
Marisa

I like Sabrina. She is real and down to earth. I like Brit. She adds some spice. I would love to see Sabrina stand up to aggressive Brit.

I am all for old, new, and OLTL characters! It make the show more interesting.

I am guessing that he might be gay, but we will see…I love Sabrina, she is the only new character that I actually enjoy. I have to say that I also love the OLTL characters considering that they are the ones who drew me to GH to begin with. As I have said, they can bring on new characters, bring back vets, bring on characters from OLTL, AMC, or even Loving as long as there is GOOD story I will be there!

gianluca

I absolutely agree!

I figure he is going to be gay. I wish he were actually a part of the Quartermaine/Ward clan. I love how they made Sabrina a relative of Juan’s (and how she said that to Liz – who happens to have married the actor who played Juan!) and wish she was tied to others. Sabrina is nice and sweet and deserves her own love story eventually – after her crush with Patrick runs its course. We are supposed to dislike Britt, so good job – can’t stand her! Hopefully this new character comes with GOOD STORY. I can stomach crappy characters and/or acting with good story lines.

This makes no sense. What’s with all the new characters. GH is starting to get overcrowded.

agree robert 100 why mess up a good thing with ratings getting better but
do wish steve burton would return it is not the same without jason and his
black t shirt and leather jacket and of course that perfect body of his i am just
saying

Can he be Tommmy Hardy? Simone and tom’s son?

I don’t know about another new character???????????? I rather see the charcters we know and loved , and haven’t seen for quite a while….Like Bobbie for example!

April Dawn

a) I like Sabrina, but would love to see what she looks like as a NON-nerd. b) Yes, would love to see her get a chance at Patrick,but only UNTIL Robin returns. c) Could care less about this new character!!!! Would love to see the return of Lucy Coe!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely worthless. More worthless than Sabrina and Britt, and Trey.

Why is everyone complaining about another newbie??? The Quartermaines are back on the screen weekly. Heather was responsible for how much this past summer? Anna has not one, not two, but three former love interests on screen. Mac and Felicia will probably get more time with the Maxie-Lulu pregnancy. Like why, is it never good enough? Why instead of being grateful, we have to find SOMETHING to complain about??? Sheesh.
The ratings are up. The storylines are moving along. We’ve seen almost every contracted character on a pretty regular basis. I welcome another character. Especially a character of color and possibly another person to represent the gay community. And hopefully give more opportunity for even more screen time from some of our favorites!

Mitchell1660

I agree.

i like Sabrina. she’s cute – much cuter than she appears, perhaps for the ball she’ll get a makeover, do something with tht hair and put some contacts in and then maybe Patrick will take more notice…. and how long do we have to wait to have him find out that gal who has the hots for him is not as great a catch as SHE thinks she is? what’s her name… the gal who wanted him to go to the hotel date with her. whatever. she’s not nice to Sabrina nor his daughter.

I don’t mind another new guy… Trey’s on his way out and they’ve got some new storyline coming up…. fine with me.

Robert
Robert

How about bring Natalie to deal with John McBain, only to have her fall for AJ!! Oh Niki Smith needs to come and help Sonny deal with Connie/Kate too!

Maggie

I’m assuming Felix is going to be gay…A storyline with Patrick/Sabrina would be them starting a relationship, and then Robin is found. But, unless Kimberley is going to be returning, they can’t put her and Patrick back together. But, there is no way she would be without Emma. I don’t know how that is going to get this worked out, unless Robin continues to be incarcerated indefinitely. I’m looking forward to the resurrection of the nurse’s ball. They were always fun episodes. Or maybe Felix is not gay? The he could hook up with Sabrina or that doctor; don’t know her name; don’t like her.

Mitchell1660

Oh, I’m sure Felix is definitely going to be gay…

i am getting to the point i dont want to watch they a bringing in to meany new characters. if i want to see Kelly Sullivan or anyone else i will just wait for spmepne to post them. i cant even keep track of what is going on with all the storylines and why are they fireing people who have been on fpr a while just to bring in a brand new character no one cares about. there are already way to meany story lines to keep track of and now they are adding yet another. this is way too much. the only story line that still makes sense to me is the Kate and Sonny one the rest are just plain all over the place if this keeps up i will walk away i have done it before and the only storyline i will be watching is Sonny/Kate. i like most of the chacters but this is just to much.

AHHH! This new Felix character makes me gag. Are there so few actors auditioning these days that you have to settle on those who cant act? Nothing that guy says is believable.

Dave Blackstone

Felix is awesome and as the show goes along he’s just getting better. Made me laugh and seems less self-absorbed as the other characters, M. Samuel is one of the better actors – I want to see more of him with Sabrina and hopefully others.

Looking forward to seeing more scenes of Sabrina and Patrick together; especially watching the transformation of “the dull and boring Sabrina” to the gorgeous eye-popping, jaw-dropping Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), who will leave Patrick (Jason Thompson)speechless and completely awe-struck with her beauty. Going to be such fun to watch the magical love develop between Patrick and Sabrina and spill over onto the precious little girl, Emma!
Perhaps the “NURSES’ BALL” will get things rolling…

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Courtesy/ABC

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
