In the final moments of Monday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers got their first glimpse of Michael Easton in his new role on the ABC soap as Dr. Hamilton Finn.

How did it all come about? Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson)!  Thanks to Monica’s concerns for Tracy’s (Jane Elliot) worsening medical condition she picks up her cell phone and dials up a medical expert she feels could really help figure out what on earth is going on with her sister-in-law.

When Monica launches into the phone exchange about how she met Hamilton and why she is calling him, fans of GH and Easton see him petting a very specific reptile, a bearded dragon!  Looks Like Dr. Finn has an intriguing taste in pets.

Watch the introduction of Easton’s new character after the jump.  Then let us know from the little you witnessed, how you surmise Hamilton to be?  The story continues with more with Easton on Today’s episode.  Share your thoughts below!

Lame! Hoping he turns out to have Cassidine connections after all.

Maybe he will be the male figure in the painting of Helena’s teapot

Perhaps he was the one who added a specific deleterious “ingredient” to Helena’s teapot, being the renowned “infectious disease specialist” that he is????” I certainly hope not, especially since I want to see the “Dragon Lady” alive and kicking for another of her cunning capers. And speaking of “dragons,” I wonder if Reptile Roxy secretes any poisonous substances????? (Would that qualify as a “service?”)

@Mary SF/ Shay.
We may joke about it, LOL…. But, I think you are both on the right track. I think there is an association between Finn snd Helena. The lizard is smack in the middle of it.
What if Helena took Silas’ body ( dead or otherwise) and created a monster?
Oh, Shay, as usual, you drew a chuckle from me. As yourself, I did liken Roxy, the Dragon to Helena, the Dragon. Are they sisters? Love your symbolism.
Then, there’s Griffin….a mind teaser….getting even weirder. Does Griffin know Claudette? Is he here for revenge? Is Griffin Nathan’s brother?

@Shay/ Mary.
I just wanted to say that I was watching ‘old’ movies on TCM, where Constance Towers was interviewed ( during the intermission) on her role in the movie SHOCK CORRIDOR (1963)…it will be shown tomorrow, if you have that network. I will DVR it….
She has such impeccable manners; is so intelligent and just beautiful inside and out ….WOW!!
Anyway, I wanted to let you know, since we share a common admiration for her.
HAPPY EASTER.

Sooooo thrilled Michael is back! I think he & his gal pal Roxy make a great couple so far. I’m just happy he’s on. Marie

I felt pretty confident that I had figured out the reason for Roxy, and the reason for Finn to keep her with him. That is until I read this thread. I began to doubt my concept due to some of the reasons posted here. Now, however I am holding to my original thoughts, and wondering only why I seem to be the only one who is thinking it. Currently I am holding back because if I post it, I may be the spoiler for those enjoying the question more than attempting a discovery of the answer, which now I believe to be correct. No hints. I will reply if I think someone is correct. We shall see.

I love it that Monica was in the center of this introduction. More Monica time!

The bearded dragon is disgusting! I thought if it were a chameleon it would symbol him not being who we thought he was and changing personalities or his identity!

Rumor has it the bearded dragon’s name is R.C.!

More Monica time, indeed. Loving all of the Monica w/Tracy scenes. I loved the look of delight on Tracy’s face when Dr. Finn made the remark about his bedside manner.

Is his pet named Frank…lol

Shay mentioned Hamilton Finns possible link to David Hamilton who Laura killed hundred years ago…maybe he will have a story with Laura…wanting revenge for Davids death…David might have been his father or whatever…

Joe
Joe

About 99% of today’s viewers have no clue who David Hamilton was…the sleeze bag who used Laura to get to Leslie before Laura cracked his head open on the fireplace. And the first man Laura dumped Scotty for! But I do like that idea! Hope he isn’t Laura’s long lost son.

Shay
Shay

@Joe…That storyline long preceded my viewing of GH, too….I just recalled the mention of it in later years, as when Laura told Luke of the incident, so the name, David Hamilton, stuck in my mind. (I had to look it up online for the details…..) As you have explained, he was the first of Laura’s many ill-fated mishaps with unsavory men through the years…..talk about setting the template for future failures!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I hope he isnt her son too…

Patricio

I am in the 1 %! That was the storyline that got me watching the “stories” after school with my mama, Tias and Abulas! It must have been 1975?

I remember the love letter written by Laura it was ripped up but the letter “L” was torn up thrown in the air and found in the chandelier. That was the proof they used to throw Leslie in the clink and she took the wrap! Laura had forgortten it!

This again was long befor Luke or Scotty !

Fabulous soap days- thanks for remembering!

Wil

I remember it well. I was home from school sick. David told Laura that he never loved her and some other nasty things. Laura cracked his head open–with a bookend? Leslie discovered her, and David’s dead body. Leslie took the blame and was in jail until the guilt caused Laura to almost break. I loved that storyline! I’ve loved Laura, Leslie and Rick ever since.

How could Michael Easton playe Genie Frances’s son when he is about her age, give or take a couple of years? It’s bad enough she is playing the mother of Nikolas when Tyler Christopher is only ten years younger than Genie (but looks her age at least).
I was thinking he could play a love interest for Laura–Good Lord, her son?
That would be ridiculous.

Justin
Justin

It’s most likely too much to ask that he would have some connection to the show’s history, but I love the idea.

Wil
Wil

Correction. David tore up her love letters and threw them into the air and laughed at her. She pushed him and he fell into the fireplace head first and died.

Joe
Joe

The old days, the late 70s and early 80s, were my favorite times. Love Rick and Leslie, Alan and Monica, Scotty and Laura. Of course, I loved Luke and Laura, too. When Laura killed David, she took off and Scotty went and saved her. Seems like he keeps saving her.

Peggy
Peggy

Those were the days. Monica Q deciding to have Leslie’s hubby Rick, Amy Vining and nurse Lucille. Aunt Ruby. Good times.

Monica, Tracy, and Dillon had some great scenes in this episode. Tracy asking Monica to be healthcare directive cause she won’t make sentimental decision like Ned/Dillon and Monica responded by saying if she thinks she doesn’t care about her she couldn’t be more wrong was such a powerful moment. Monica leaving the room and fighting back tears was another heartfelt moment and her talk with Dillon in the hallway was just great with him telling her that he knows his mom loves her. The hug that Monica and Dillon shared was touching. I also like Dillon on the phone with Ned and could feel the emotion. Excellent stuff in this storyline all day.

Finn appeared to be more stylish and a little dark based on a short first impression so nothing like Silas. I don’t know what to think about the reptile but it certainly intrigued me. I am sticking to my guns that he is going to end up being a Cassadine with the never seen but once discussed Valentin being the likely option. I just keep going back to last month when Nikolas told Hayden that Wyndemere would always be his cause he’s the oldest living Cassadine heir. This was major foreshadowing to me and around the time ME starting taping again so something has gotta come from that line. It would also give ME a new group to interact with (Nikolas, Hayden, Laura) cause Silas didn’t cross paths with those three characters. He may go by Finn for the time being but Stavros went by the name Lucien when he was introduced so he could be using an alias as well.

I am so glad that Griffin seems to be on the right track when it comes to Tracy and Mayes had egg on his face for being showed up by the younger doctor. I am pleased that Tracy doesn’t have cancer but Mayes was so rude to Griffin and so disrespectful to Dillon with him being certain it was cancer.

Go Nina! I loved the moment when our GH women (I wish Sexy Sam was there) took their shirts off in the courtroom to make a statement and finally I got some enjoyment out of this breastfeeding storyline. Diane admitting to Alexis she let her win was funny and glad she’s headed back to Team Corinthos.

Go Nina again! She hired Curtis to be her PI and find out who is sabotaging Crimson. He got the results for Hayden pretty quick so he should be able to nail Julian in due time.

Rose
Rose

Jay….Feel much the same about this episode for a change. Actually laughed when Carly opened the courtroom door, starting the nursing moms and the supportive black, lacy reveals.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Good post. But Diane didn’t really let Alexis win…just teased Alexis while saving face. Love their friendship which used to be so fun when Diane was on the show regularly. That’s another thing GH needs more of…friendships!

AJQ

Seriously, a fifty second clip of him sitting at a desk and what did we think? The attention being paid to this return, starting with the ridiculous promo that the rest of the cast was duped into doing is just ridiculous.

But what did I think, I think he has the same low, unexpressive voice and they have to give him a pet lizard to try and give him a personality which says a lot.

No matter how much anyone pretends that Michael Easton is a big deal, it’s not going to happen. This return also came at the end of an episode that is so telling of how GH is right back to the ridiculous camp and nonsense that had so many tune out. The courtroom scenes were an embarrassment.

We should all know by now that RC wasn’t solely responsible for the cartoonish and ridiculous tone the show took on. The women taking off their shirts, especially Nina with that awkward display, (which btw, why is Stafford playing Nina as mentally and physically challenged, it’s offensive) was just so embarrassing, I can’t imagine the mentality that it appeals to or that writes it. Then we top off the episode with try number five for the OLTL actor stroking a lizard. Yeah, those ratings are just going to go through the roof.

Sean
Sean

Obviously it appeals to your mentality since you watch and complain about it more than most people.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

I’m right there with her. GH was marvelous for decades. And now it might have a couple of good scenes a week. It’s easy to critique and complain about. And Michelle Stafford IS playing Nina in a really weird way.

I think the breast feeding story rivals the worst of RC’s terrible writing.
And I will KEEP complaining, as I imagine AJQ will. So get used to it.

Sean
Sean

So then there is a simple solution. If you go to a restaurant and you dont like the food, do you keep going there? You may post an online review saying how bad it was, then in most likelihood not go there again. Or you may at some point give it another try but if you still dont like it you stop going. You don’t post a daily review complaining about how bad it is do you?

But some people will watch a soap every day, then come here and complain. I’d ask why they watch every day but I think I just answered my questions, they want to be able to come on the internet and complain.

AJQ
AJQ

Well Sean, you’ve obviously given this a lot of thought and taken the time to express your thoughts so I’ll help you out.

First, your analogy of a restaurant is flawed. As opposed to a TV show, to go to a restaurant means exactly that, you physically go. So you take time, you travel and then you eat a meal and on top of that you pay money for it.

A soap on the other hand magically appears for free on your TV, you don’t have to move from your chair, you don’t have to physically consume anything, and you don’t pay for it.

That brings us to your point of watching every day and how people actually watch it. There always seems to be this idea from people, like you, that putting on a soap takes some massive commitment and demands a full hour of undivided attention.

I have a TV on in my office during the day. I like to have background noise while I’m working and distractions every now and then so that I can take short breaksfrom my work. During the day I’ll have on anything from MSNBC, CNN, Kelly & Michael, The local noon news, The View, The Michael Kay show on YES, and at 3pm, I’ll often flip to GH. Not every day, sometimes because I just don’t feel like watching it, sometimes I’m not in my office at that time or I have work I need to concentrate on, or a meeting etc.

The days I do have GH on, sometimes it is on for the hour, it’s in the background, Franco & Nina aren’t on that day stinking it up so might not be so offensive that I have to get it off my screen. A lot of times it isn’t on for the hour, I’ll tune out after a couple of segments because it’s pretty bad, sometimes I flip back and forth to news or sports and catch bits and pieces over the course of the hour. So it varies.

But your idea that everyone puts GH on every day, at the beginning and gives it their undivided attention for a full hour isn’t correct in my case and I would assume a lot of other people and your analogy to GOING to a restaurant and PAYING for a bad meal that you PHYSICALLY INGEST is not a logical one.

Sean
Sean

In that case if you don’t give it your full attention then you shouldn’t be complaing about it every day.

A soap does not “magically” appear on your screen. You have to chose to put that program on

I just don’t get it, for over years now you have been on various sites complaining about GH. If I dislike a show that much I do the simple thing turn the channel.

The show seems to make you so miserable, yet you still take the time to write about it every day which tells me that is your sole purpose of watching teh show.

My restaurant analogy is not flawed. It is the same of buying anything from a store, etc. If you dont like it you don’t buy it. If you dont like a tv program most people will not bother with it.

You say you dont pay attention but yet you point out every flaw in the show, so either you are making things up to complain about or you are paying attention to allow you to come here and complain every day

Sean
Sean

then if you dont give it your full attention then you cant give a critique that means anything because you yourself say yo don’t pay attention. But you obviously do since you point every little flaw the show us and have done so for 4 years now. there are plenty of other programs that you might enjoy that you could put on “in the background”but you chose GH for the specific point of come here to complain about the show that “magically”comes on for free. Umm yea last i checked you have to chose to put it on that channel

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I’m with you Sean…and your restaurant analogy was appropro.

AJQ…Nina is not “physically” or “mentally” challenged. Physically she’s able-bodied and stunning. Mentally she is coming off a 20-year coma. Caused by her mother. Lost two decades of her life. She’s since evolved into a strong woman with a creative mind, and has become an adept problem solver all while still dealing with the traumatic events of her life. Considering how disgruntled and angry some get over the fictitious world of GH, I thiink Nina is doing remarkably well comparativelly!

Harry
Harry

Sean and Rebecca, you’re both way off the mark here.
Listen up–those of us who complain about GH have been watching for years, and therefore, we have invested not only time into this show, we’ve invested our emotions. Yes, we get to complain and I do not abide by this love it or leave it mentality which some of you attempt to thrust down our throats.
It actually really pisses me off when you attempt to censor those who do not jump up and down with utter adulation for a show that we’ve watched for many many years. AJQ is spot on right here in my opinion and she/he does not deserve to be shut down for expressing his/her opinion.
And Rebecca, while I usually respect your opinion the simple truth is that Stafford has made some really puzzling acting choices in her portrayal of Nina. When she is not chewing up the scenery with her over acting, she is cowering in the corner like a scared child. In my opinion, Stafford is a colossal flop as Nina.

Harry
Harry

The breast feeding in public controversy seems very antiquated and totally ridiculous. They think they’re making the women look self actualized and strong but in reality they’re making them look just plain silly. Put a blanket over the baby’s face and the nursing breast when breastfeeding in public and there is no controversy. Yes, it’s that simple and yes, it’s a matter of social etiquette to adhere to the cultural climate.
If they really want this group of hens to address the sky which is falling, then address real issues which are equal pay for equal work and how women are shut out of the tech industry. The breast feeding issue is a non issue and makes me feel it is 1976, not 2016 and not in a good way.

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Likewise Harry, I usually respect your opinion…or at least the inoffensive way you express it. However, in this case, not so much. I don’t need to be reprimanded…I didn’t tell AJQ not to express her opinion or to turn GH off. But AJQ is extremely sarcastic on most of her replys to anyone who disagrees with her. Ironically, unbeknownst to her it seems, I defended her on another post weeks ago when she seemed under attack. However, I have since been on the receiving end of her snark on the thread about Eastman’s promo.

Sean IS right. He neither told AJQ to stop watching GH or to stop posting, but he did question why someone would continue to do both when every post is a complaint…and I thought his restaurant analogy fitting. If I had mixed feelins about something I might continue on with whatever it was; if I felt repeatedlty negative I’d let it go. Makes sense to me.

As for you, this may be our first spat but let me be clear…don’t insinuate something about me or put words in my mouth. A: I’ve been watching GH for years too. LOL…not that it matters in the scope of life and what’a really important, but for the purpose of this discussion don’t throw that in my direction. You don’t own the corner on being a GH fan. B: No one in the post, particularly me, tried to cram anything down anyone’s throat with a love it or leave it mentality. Actuually, it
s the other way around. If someone dares likes a character who isn’t a GH legacy character or comes from OLTL, we’re accuserd of not being true GH fans. It’s petty and juvenile. It’s a freaking show and anyone is entitled to like any actor, regardless of his/her roots…and doesn’t need to be condescended to. So…don’t. And AJQ isn’t “right” as youo say. You agree with her…and that’s fine. As I agreed with Sean.

As for Nina…I like her. She’s evolving and I’m curious to see where her character goes. Would I be upset if the character was booted from the show? Not so much. But I think there is a vast improvement in character growth and while she’s far from my favorite…I think Michelle is doing a fine job for the role of a woman lost…finding herself.

As for the breastfeeding story it is relevant today…not just 1976 as you say. It still makes the news…was a big thing recently between Adele and Jamie Oliver..and an issue for Trump too. May not make scintillating soap…but the GH bit was light, relevant and gave the women of GH a little moment of sisterly solidarity. It also set the stage for Alexis and perhaps future problems with Mayor Lomax…should that ever come to fruition.

In closing…we’ll always have AJ… :/

Hi Laura-

Do you think he has had any “help” getting a bit more handsome?

No judgement – he just didn’t need it!

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I don’t think Michael has had any “work”done. He doesn’t look like he did…and doesn’t seem like the kind of person who would do anything even if he did. He’s busted his nose three times and never fixed it…and if you look at him before so much damage you’ll see that even though he’s still very good-looking he was even more so. I think he just looks rested, cut his hair (I think it’s darker) and gained some weight. He looks great…has that sensual look as always.

I’m happy to see ME return but not as a quirky doctor. He had played a doctor previously so I would have preferred him in any other type role instead.

Jimmy
Jimmy

First of all, Hamilton Finn is a terrible name. I thought Silas Clay was bad, and I’m not sure who came up with this one, but it’s definitely worse.

Second, I’m not super impressed that Michael Easton is back in a totally new role. I would have preferred if he joined the cast as an already established character, like Thomas Hardy or Valentin Cassadine or heck, even a recast Steve Webber.

And third, what’s up with his pet lizard? I’m not sure where they’re going with this character but I really hope he doesn’t end up being a wash like Silas, and hopefully there will be a connection to the canvas that comes up, like how they tied Griffin to Duke as his son.

Patricio

You are hilarious! The names are ridiculous!

They are as fake as that facelift!

I’m looking forward to having ME back on screen..
I can only hope he will be written well and not stupidly (a whole lot of stupid scripts are being played out) and that this time around he will get some meaty drama the kind that makes me go WOW! .. Easton is at his best when he is a bit on the darkside ..
I can only wish his character as doctor Finn will be mysterious. exciting, intelligent and gripping..
bottom line; GH doesn’t need another boring saint..

Rose
Rose

Su…just a thought. Whose to say you can’t be a doctor and long lost Cassidine with an agenda?

Shay
Shay

Really, Rose!….I’m expecting the mysterious Dr. Finn to be a multi-layered character…..and not just a wonderfully weird and eccentric infectious disease specialist with a penchant for reptilian pets! There is definitely much more to him than meets the eye! (And speaking of that, what’s up with the Naomi Dreyfus-Berlin thing? Please tell me that Hayden, Rachel, whatever….is not related to that great GH legacy grifter galore, Holly Sutton Scorpio! Bilking people was her specialty. I realize that may be out-of-the-box thinking, but I’m racking my brain trying to decide who else from Port Charles past could have elicited such a shocked response from LIz when their identity was revealed online….are there any other formidable femmes from former days who could be a suitable suspect??? I was so focused upon whom was Hayden’s Daddy-O that I never considered her maternal origins.)

Dan
Dan

My initial gut reaction is it’s kind of disappointing that Michael is playing another doctor. I was hoping for something different. Like I know a lot of people were hoping he might be the often spoken about, but still yet unseen Valentin Cassadine, which would have been really fun.

But who knows, maybe he still could be. Hamilton Finn is such an over the top, almost fake sounding name, that I’m hoping it’s an alias, and over time we’re gonna find out he’s really someone else.

I know a lot of people will pass their judgment already after one scene, but like all new characters on the show, I’m gonna give it some time and see what develops. I don’t think Michael would have agreed to come back to play another boring doctor, so I have to think they have something good in mind. I like Michael, so I hope they actually write some interesting stories for him this time.

Rose
Rose

So far I’m liking GH right now. I’ll suspend reality about Silas Clay…just love Michael being back, and the Q’s, Griffin, and Brad in Drs. Mayes and O’s faces. Wonder what O’s problem is? Is it more that usurping her authority, or something else? I really had some comic relief with the breast feeding court case, and the Crimson comeback. Love to see Alexis and Diane in court. Have wanted Maxie and Crimson to help add a little glamor to Port Charles. And it gives something for Nina to do. And now with Val and the PI, Julian will get outed. All of these giving a lift to the otherwise serious Morgan/Kiki story. And Helena is still causing her havoc, maybe from the crypt, or not. Ahh…hopefully spring has come with some good, new stories that tie things together better. 🙂

Jay Trotter

Well said.

GH has been really good since the start of 2016.

Rebecca1

I’m enjoying GH more these days too Rose. I love Matt Cohen and am wondering if he’ll play the good doctor to balance out the good from the “evil” or not-so-upstanding characters…which is part of the role Patrick played. And the good guys ARE needed! Or, will he be involve in a total y different direction…

As you already know I’m completely happy Michael’s back and I feel from the little I’ve seen I’m going to love his character…

It’s been great having Monica back and her presence should be required!

The mystery oh Helena and Laura’s invovement ala the key has potential and plays into Cassadine craziness from days of yore. I hope they don’t screw it up.

I like how Nina’s evolving. Giving her Crimson was a great idea and it’s interesting to see how a woman deprived of so much of her life is taking it back. She’s on her way to becoming a strong character…

All in all…they’re on the right track if they can keep the momentum going before fan apathy causes GH to derail….

I’m going to wait n see, I’m not sure they should of made him another doctor but let’s see what happens. Maybe most of us are stuck thinking he’s better suited playing a cop but it’s not fair after only one episode .

There are still a lot of “conspiracy therys” floating around out there about who Hamilton Finn “really” is.
I hope he’s jus Hamilton Finn and NO ONE ELSE!
I don’t want another evil Cassadine who’s Nathan’s daddy or some other far-fetched character. Let him just be a doctor!

Shell

I know. I do not want him tied to Helena or Ashton or whoever. I hope he had nothing to do with Tracy’s illness in the first place. I’m hoping the lizard isn’t his own personal laboratory for evil serums. Please (writers) just let him be a cookie, quirky doctor and build new stories from that.

Michael

Mister Media

I’m happy to see Michael back on the show. I was not happy with the reptile gimmick because I don’t like “wacky” on the soaps. I was disappointed that the characters all referenced Finn’s resemblance to Silas. It would have been a cleaner entry to just let it go unremarked upon. If the other characters treat him like a brand new character with no baggage it’s easier for the audience to accept him – unless the resemblance comes into story play later. This quibbling aside, I think Easton is a valuable asset to the show and look forward to seeing what he’ll do with this role. Long live GH!

Jeremy
Jeremy

@ Mister Media, I too had hoped that the resemblance to Silas would have not been addressed by select characters, thus far. Like you said, perfectly, “it would have a cleaner entry to just let it go unremarked upon.” Oh well, what’s done is done. Happy ME is back, too!

Alan

I just can’t shake the feeling that the ridiculous name and the eccentric choice of pet was the sum total of the thought put into this character…

He is a Cassadine and love love love it!

Aside from the fact how silly it is when the other characters casually mention how identical he looks to Silas, who was told how identical he looked to McBain…, I just have to believe they’re breaking the wall to let us in on the joke. But!!! I absolutely LOVED seeing Michael and I totally believed him as this mysterious, dark-seeming doctor. I didnt get a sense of Silas. Michael looked great, seemed like he’d gained some weight (he seemed thinner than his usual thin self as Silas). He had swag…attitude…. love the new role and Easton. Soooo glad he’s back! He had me at hello!

Rose
Rose

Rebecca…If this is what it takes to get MIchael back on GH, I just decided to have fun with this, too. And when you look back at some of the other storylines and characters GH has given us over the years, the new Finn/Silas/vampire look-alike (with no explanation so far), fits right in with Casey the alien. I’m still holding out some hope he is a Cassidine who went to med school.

rebecca1

Lol…I’m open to all possibilities Rose. I really felt a rush when he appeared. Just something about this actor that evokes joy…even when he’s sullen, somber and dark! Go figure!

Well intriguing. .jean passanante has a strange knack of writing a well rounded doctor with a strange name. .i.e. reid Oliver who came between luke and noah on atwt..a smug smart-ass know it all. .and that will be Hamilton Finn this go round on gh so don’t be shocked when you like him/hate him. .lol

OK-
some are believing that Finn is a Cassidine..
I wish it were true but do not see how that could be now.

Finn’s backstory has been established by Monica.
Her knowing of him and meeting him. Finn is now established as an renowned expert on infectious diseases..
It is a long road in the medical field specializing to become a Doctor of his high stature..

That being, then his being a Cassidine is extremely farfetched.. lol
(( I mean–psssst what kinda Cassidine is that, anyways!

Is he from Shriner’s Childrens Hospital?

Amazing how he looks like the dead Doctor who looked like the vampire who looked like the detective from Llanview. I find it a bit amusing they would name that iguana Roxy (as in Foxy Roxy), and diagnose Tracy with brain worms on his first episode. Let’s blame the worms on Mexico! I’m already looking forward to Easton’s fifth character.

hey Joe..
wouldn’t it be 3 characters??

Easton; GH–
John McBain (short lived Prospect Park lawsuit..
then–
Caleb alter ego of Michael Morley (alternate identity)
Stephen Clay (alternate identity)
All ^^^^ the same 3 guys
Then Silas ..
LOL 🙂

He also started days of our lives in the 90s he was on it for about a year . I think he was twins? Tanner and Janner? Don’t really remember details?

Lol…agree Joe. I noted “Roxie” too…a nod to Foxy Roxy. Funny!

Hi Olivia…you might be right as to why they chose Hamilton. From what I recall Michael and Renee became good friends on OLTL. I mentioned this on another post but I met her in an organic marjet in Manhattan…she’s very nice.

For su0000: Easton played: 1) Caleb/Stephen Clay. 2) John McBain. 3) Silas Clay. 4) Hamilton Finn. When they kill off Ham Finn, he’ll probably come back for character #5. That’s what I was referring to. I think Easton may have a soap record for the most characters played on one soap opera.

I thought the first scene with the dragon was a it odd, but I liked his interactions with Tracy. He was confident, clear on his knowledge, and had sense of humor, unlike Silas. I’m just so glad that ME is back on screen… I will wait until his character is fleshed out before worrying too much.

Wouldn’t it have been cool if he was Dr. Rick Webber, Jr. That would’ve made more sense for Monica to call him. Or, he could have been a Hardy. Maybe he’s a Cassadine? I just want some tie to history. We have too many characters now that have no ties to the show (Nina, Liesel, Franco, Jordan, Curtis). History matters. It’s a great way for the audience to connect with the character even more.

I agree – history does matter! These are all great ideas; hopefully one is in the works.

Not watching, but my twitter feed was all about the lizard, not him. “Roxy” is the most-buzzed-about new character GH has had in years, lol

Now both GH and Y&R each have their eccentric, not-typical new doctors…and they are both Michael’s. Love Y&R’s Dr. Neville , especially with Ashley. And so far I’m liking Doc Finn. Hope GH and Y&R can keep up writing good stories for both of these talented actors.

I honestly cannot believe that I’m watching a show about a f*****g lizard. Such poor judgement; such a waste of time and talent. Long live….ahhh, screw it.

Oh Roxy is a service animal. That’s great. Of course we all want to know what service Roxy serves!

Well if you are going to have a Doctor with a lizard, love the fact they honored OLTL by naming her Roxy. Finn is definitely creepy so he just may last especially, if he’s really Valentin.

Sorry, but every time that I see Michael, all I can think of is John and how much I still miss JOLIE and OLTL. ABC, it’s ridiculous that you can’t get those rights back and resurrect the best soap ever. Still so disappointed. So missing JOLIE, Vicky, Bo & Nora, Blair and Todd, Roxy, Jessica and the list goes on. These are true characters that I loved and can root for.

My goodness Gentry, you are pulling at my heartstrings! Loved , loved Jolie on OLTL? Can we have Melissa Archer join Michael Easton on GH? I would be thrilled..

Heck yes those two are magic and need to be reunited again!

OLTL should be resurrected, it was the best soap on daytime. Somewhere along the line the writers and producers lost their way and forgot about the show’s ground breaking history.

Awesome to see the great Bearded Dragon pet lizard on TV! They make great pets and until you meet one it’s hard to understand. So easy to care for and so portable!
Roxy needs a Beardie Bag! Don’t be dragg’in that dragon…carry Roxy in style!!

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
