Michael Easton Reveals He Has Begun Taping At GH: First Episode Back To Air March 18th!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Michael Easton fans around the globe are very excited to welcome him back to General Hospital in his new role, which is still tightly under wraps.

After the bombshell a few weeks ago from GH executive producer Frank Valentini, complete with a little video ditty revealing Easton is on his way back to Port Charles, the exchange on-camera between the actor and the EP said they will see each other in a few weeks.

Looks like that turned out to be dead on! On Easton’s official facebook page on Friday, he shared the cover of his first script back: General Hospital show #13518 with its shoot date of February 26th. and its airdate of March 18th.  Easton added his own touch with the words: “And So It Begins …”

And so it does begin GH fans! Excited to know Michael’s debut is only a few weeks away? Who do you think will be his love interest?  Who will he be related to? Will he even be related to anyone?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I am beyond excited to have him back on GH! I’m sure whoever he portrays, he’ll do it brilliantly!

Laura
Laura

I’m beyond thrilled he’s back. I want his love interest to be Sam!
I’m not sure who I want him related to. Anyone bUT Sam!

Yvonne
Yvonne

Happy! Thank God they rectified the big mistake of letting him go. ..now pair him up with Sam, he’s the only one she has hot chemistry with.

Jen

Hopefully his love interest will be Anna Devane! I would also be happy with another Kelly Monaco pairing but I doubt they will go there again.

Buddy Brown

I hope that he is a good guy Cassadine, Valentin or perhaps a recast Stefan, or even another of Mikkos’ “bastards” as Helena always called Alexis; but a Cassadine. He would be the heir, that Nikolas assumes that he now is. Would also be a great set up for a potential love interest for Laura, as the two Actors’ gorgeous features, hair color, etc would make for a great combo, and definitely a pair that could be fiery and bring that needed passion for Laura, Genie and Micheal would completely tear up the screen together, and about time Laura was paired with someone her own age, I can see the ratings begin to soar already!!!

Shay
Shay

I share your sense of anticipation and excitement, Buddy Brown! At this point, if Easton is not a long-last Cassadine, I think I shall be more than a bit disappointed, because everything about him would certainly lend itself to being part of that legendary GH dynasty! Having said that, I’m just delighted to be welcoming him back to Port Charles in whatever way, shape or form that remains to be seen.

Timmm

Michael will be Valentin. He will show up mysteriously at the reading of Helena’s will and will get the bulk of her estate and Nick will end up shoveling the shat in the stables!

Well, Nathan was blabbering on about someone named Claudette but later claimed he was talking about the family poodle.
Maybe Claudette had a sex change operation and she is now known as Claude who will be played by Michael Easton.

Shay
Shay

@Timmm….I think it would be great if Nik, Hayden and Spence ended up penniless and had to live in one-room over Kelley’s! That would give a whole new meaning to the term “townie” for that smug little Cassadine!

Shay
Shay

@Harry….Or else, perhaps Nathan is an old movie buff, and he was having fantasies about Claudette Colbert!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Buddy.
Your name has a catchy ring to it. I like it.
So, did I get this wrong? Valentin is a good guy? Oops, I thought he was a baddie. I thought ALL Cassadine’s were demons; or morphed into one, as Nikolas has. Later.

G
G

Cee Cee congrats on your pregnancy.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Shay and Harry.
As I said on a previous comment, Claudette will most likely be a former, Haute Classe, lover who left a bitter taste in Nathan’s mouth. If this is the case, MadMaddie has had her hand in the cookie jar…LOL.

Tivette
Tivette

I agree…I hope he’s a lost Cassadine and emerges from the reading of Helena’s will with a title and a place of power. Wouldn’t that be juicy!

Shay
Shay

Yes, it would be quite juicy, Tivette! Especially if he supplants Nik from the lofty position—and all it entails—that he thinks is his birthright….what a splendid comeuppance that would be!

Pam

I’m so excited I can’t wait to see Michael Eastoin Back on GH. He should have never been left go in the first place. I’m Hoping Michael is put with Maura West as a Love interest. I was hoping they were going to go that Route before he left.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wish we didnt know-tptb should have kept it a big secret-miss being supprised…Valentin or a Quartimaine would be nice but i will wait and see who and if it works.

Melissa

TPTB built up suspense nicely. Here’s hoping they don’t blow it! Why they let ME go in the first place is beyond me.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

It might have been a publicity gimmick…make you think he left the show but really didnt…took time off to do an outside project then returns after a few months as a new character because the last one was too bland and didnt really work…just a thought.

Looking forward to seeing Easton on GH – again. Whoever and whatever his character will be, I hope he is not paired with Kelly. They are probably as over it as I am.

Jamie
Jamie

Agreed

Mari
Mari

I certainly hope so. Have tried over and over and that pairing did not work. Establish his character and then I say bring Melissa Archer onboard. She will definitely liven him up.

MissySnow
MissySnow

@Mari,,,so let’s bring on another newbie this time MA who I enjoyed on OLTL at the expense of not using our GH vets?! Really?

su0000
su0000

Easton’s characters needs to be free..
he does not have to be instantly coupled to anyone..(what’s wrong with you guys sheesh..

We need months before even considering pairing him off, after all he will be a Cassidine..
just let the poor man have a life before involving him in a boring love gone wrong pile-up..

I hope he is written as a wickedly dark cool guy, a bad boy we gotta luv..
(and not a priest of love and honey)..

Dylan
Dylan

We get it, Sir. You love evil and hate love. We know!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

I agree, su. I don’t understand why, each time a new character graces the stage, he or she needs to be set up with dome one. I think said character should find his sea legs first….especially, Michael Easton…..considering this his umpteenth attempt. Let’s give him some rope. Good post!

MissySnow
MissySnow

I am happy for ME fans that they love the actor, but I have to question why we need this guy back for the THIRD time! Really? The show is bloated as it is, and we’re now about to give ME his fourth or fifth character to play when the GH vets that spent years off the show can barely get a recurring scene once a month! Lucy/LH can’t even get a scene on the show. Scotty is barely on once every other month and he has two kids that should be part of the teen and young twentysomething set.

Tristan
Tristan

I agree. I am happy for Mr. Easton, but as a fan disappointed that we cannot get a contract for Tristan Rogers, or anything announced for 18-year vet Becky Herbst. Both are more important to GH, for me any way. And yes to Scotty. Also to Mac and Felicia!

Harry 1
Harry 1

Tristan, did you see Felicia today?
It’s almost scary how that woman just doesn’t age. She is every bit as fresh and lovely as the say she arrived in Port Charles thirty some years ago.

Tristan
Tristan

Hi Harry. Yes I did, and she looks wonderful. Just a breath of fresh air! And she arrived OVER 30 years ago, back in 1984. You know, when GH was great and #1.

Timmm
Timmm

I dont mind Michael returning. He is a great RE=edition but I do agree with you that there are so many characters now. Trim the fat and use our beloved vets! Roger Howarth and Kin Shriner are gold together! USE THEM!

Dylan
Dylan

What this show needs is a NEW EP who will NOT force the writers to write story for his pets. It’s not a sustainable way to produce a show. This show has a SEVERELY bloated cast with a bunch of newbies, Emmy winners from other shows who just do not belong and don’t work on the GH canvas, and beloved vets popping up once every couple months. Guaranteed…if this show started centering story around Robert, Anna, this new doctor who is hopefully their son, Mac, Felicia, the Q’s, etc, ratings would rise. Some scenes with Frank’s pets are SO forced, awkward, and out of place….you just know Jean and Shelly have been given a directive from above to write story for them. It’s a very thankless job to try and make some kind of cohesive narrative out of Ron Carlivati’s last work on GH, and although I don’t agree with all of their choices (still TOO MUCH MOB), I feel individual scenes are much better, people act like people, not everything is plot driven, the pacing is better, etc. Trim the fat is right! Valentini is often praised for bringing the show in on budget or under budget…think how happy the network suits would be if he got rid of about 10 salaries (at least 10)!! I don’t like to see people out of work, but this show needs to seriously clean house. These are actors, they rebound, they get other jobs and move on.

Shay
Shay

Exactly right, Dylan! I could not put it more succinctly myself….even though I have tried to send the same message on many an occasion!

Melissa
Melissa

Someone unrelated to anyone. Give him a completely new character and challenge. No pairing with with Sam please!

MissySnow
MissySnow

ME had a new character in Silas and that bombed, so why bring this dude back for his fourth or fifth character? GH has a rich 53 year history and there are characters that we need on the show like Scotty, Lucky, Serena Baldwin, Steven Lars Webber, Tommy and Simone Hardy, Tommy Hardy Jr., Mike Webber, Annie Logan, ec… GH, IMO, does NOT need ME!

Vet from the Get (abc soaps)

I love M.E. and am looking forward to his seeing him back on G.H. or anywhere for that matter.
JMHO. I think Michael had great chemistry with Erin Hershey Presley who played the now deceased Alison Barrington. I wish they would bring her back to GH in a new role . Erin was primarily in Port Charles but when she returned to GH with her son Rafe in 2013, where she was killed by Caleb Morely/Stephen Clay, M.E.’s sexy, sensual, vampire from Port Charles,( until GH writers revised history, demystified and relegated him to a plain old run of the mill psychopath).
Most fans of PC and Caleb/Livvie think Michael should be paired with Kelly Monaco when he returns to G.H. I thought they had something going on while PC was alive, but I mostly credit Michael with their chemistry because he infused his character with such unabashed,raw sexuality. one couldn’t get enough.
In the last chapter or arc of Port Charles a friendship of sorts had started to build between Stephen/Caleb and Alison and I thought they had good chemistry together. Later in the arc there was a scene in which Caleb and Alison made hot and i do mean scorching hot love, because of a love spell (on the same order of A Mid Summer Nightls Dream), that Livvie cast on Caleb via his own powered- by- the- supernatural, family heirloom ring which was temporarily in her possession. A wish that got fulfilled with the wrong girl and which resulted in her getting pregnant with “Rafe”.
After watching that scene I thought Alison should have been Caleb’s love interest all along. The other actress I thought Michael had great chemistry with was Kassie DePaiva (Blair) when Michael was John McB in OLTL. I never did think there was much cpmmection between Michael and Melissa Archer. Again, just the opinion of a devoted ABC soapster

Timmm
Timmm

I loved Erin Hershey Presley and they could bring her back in a different role. Maybe as Michael’s new characters ex or current girlfriend? NO SAM AND MICHAEL PAIRING. Thats old news and was done too many times! I always said Kassie should be rehired as Carly’s long lost sister.

Terri
Terri

I completely agree with you on your position about ME and Port Charles and that crazy hot sex in the barn scene between Caleb and Alison but I absolutely Loved him with Melissa Archer. I am so glad he is back on GH! Hope he is a Cassidine.

Stephanie
Stephanie

Terri,
Yes hot barn scene, however I too loved him with Melissa. I would love to see them paired together again.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, but I agree with Stephanie….Melissa and Michael were unstoppable hot, hot, hot. Their characters both came alive when together; in any scene. I was always in seventh heaven when they were on….

Stephanie
Stephanie

Seriously CeeCee, they did come alive together. Love, love, love them. Here is hoping…..

YES,YES YES,YES, MA IS COMING I FEEL IT SHE IS GOING TO BE CLAUDETTE!!!!!

Fanny
Fanny

Michael’s return is WELCOME indeed…

CeeCee
CeeCee

Welcoming Michael back….Hmmmm, now who could he be? Could he be Nathan’s father? Is Claudette somehow connected to him? Is he bringing her along?
In that case, he would have to be a baddie. I can still hear Dr. O saying that Nathan’s father was worse than Victor C? A few agree that it could be Valentin C. I’d love to meet him.

Timmm
Timmm

Son of a gun you could be right! He could be Nathan’s father. Oh god more Ryan! HELP ME!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Whatever will you do, My Timmmy? HaHa.
And, I bet Michael is also Munro’s father. …making Nathan and the pretty Doctor brothers.

Shay
Shay

Yes, CeeCee, YES! I’m at the point that if this turns out not to be Michael Easton’s new role, I’m going to be sorely disappointed!!! I’ll still be delighted to welcome back the actor, but this scenario just sounds so perfect for him….and such a huge departure from the placid, laid-back Silas! Fingers crossed we’ve called this one correctly……

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, baby, my Shay….
I am still in a quandary here: is Valentin a good Cassadine? Or your, typical, ‘run-of-the-mill-demonic’ Cassadine?
As I said earlier, if he is a good guy, then he could not be Nathan’s dad?
I’ll take him in any role….but, as you say, not as a passive character. Later, love.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, my gosh, Shay. I am watching right now…..did you see the scene between Anna and Griffin? You could have heard a pin drop. Time was suspended for a second. Some kind of something transmitted between the two. Could Anna be his mother? He acted kind of sheepish. Could it be he knows?

CeeCee
CeeCee

Shay, I am not pregnant, sweetie. That random ‘G’ person is someone who is trying to be cute and cruel.
I responded, but, the moderators decided not to post my reply.
Nonetheless, thanks for the sentiment…LOL. Love you, Shay.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I was wondering why the new Dr. guy was staring at Anna…maybe she is his mother?.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Lol, Jimmy. We do think alike. Read my post above. Later, my dear friend.

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee……I had the same notion last week when that mysterious someone was following Anna…..Griffin could be either the child she was expecting with Duke that she supposedly “miscarried” due to Julian’s violent actions or even better, as another Scorpio offspring.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, Shay…that makes a lot of sense. If you read Alan’s post, you will find that he makes a great argument, as well. There was much ado when the Devanes were also inhabiting Pine Valley. As Allen said, Griffin could be Alex’s ( Anna’s twin) son. My Gran agrees with him. She also thinks he could be Aiden’s brother….which would mean he is Lyndsey’s (another sister) son.
She Aldo said that Anna could have had Griffin during her amnesia travesty and just doesn’t remember.
This is actually the only plot-line which has my attention, in a long time.

Shay
Shay

@CeeCeeGirl….Well, by reputation, Valentin was supposed to be the worst of the worst Cassadine….the mere notion of him even gave Helena pause! Hence unless there is some sort of revisionism at play, if Easton is indeed this most dastardly of villains, then he shall be pure evil….which would work with his dark, brooding good looks. (Oh, speaking of babies, congratulations!!!! I sent you a separate post with my well wishes, but I’m not sure you received it!)

CeeCee
CeeCee

To the moderators.
Thank you for your kindness by printing my comment to Shay that I am not with child.
If you had not, I would have been inundated with congrats and questions. It would have been a nightmare on these boards. So, I appreciate it, more than you know.

Shay
Shay

I do find this latest Anna development totally intriguing, too….I first considered that Griffin could have something to do with her AMC storyline, but how do the writers get around the legal aspects of referencing her character(s) during their time in Pine Valley???? Hmmmm…..Between this arc and Michael Easton’s return, there’s finally something exciting to anticipate, although admittedl, what of our dear diva, Tracy? Oh, my…….

Rose
Rose

CeeCee…thanks for clarifying your “family Way” situation. I’m sure if you had news you wanted to share you would do,it in your own way. I must say we’ve had some not so funny type commenters lately…I really noticed it during the status of Rebecca/Liz resigning. And Emma. Sad, sad people.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you, Rose. I must also thank the moderators who saw right through this person, and stopped the rumor in its tracks.
Sad indeed. I have a pretty good idea ; please read my mind, if you wish.
The cruelty of it is the fact that when I joined these sites, I was convalescing after a difficult pregnancy and delivery. I tend to have large babies for my body….almost 2 years ago, I had explained my malady, after a few months of commenting. I had mentioned to Shay, I believe, that I would have a hard time conceiving again. This person took note of it.
So, the insensitive, purposely spiteful comment stung a bit.
Well, more power to this person. What can I say? No heart, no soul. I am fine.
These boards are supposed to be friendly, humaine places where we share thoughts. Sometimes it is hard to keep ‘personal things’ so personal. LOL.
I hope the Nina story (not being able to conceive) goes somewhere positive. I think Maxie is a good friend…very proud of her. I feel Nina’s pain…on a different level. I am a mother and know the joy of being one. So many women, couples who desperately want a child out there who cannot conceive…to make light of a serious situation and woeful subject, does not only affect me, but so many other women.
Peace, Rose.
P S. If I have not mentioned it before, Rose is my mother’s and my baby’s name.

Shay
Shay

@Rose….I’ve also noticed this recently disturbing trend on at least one other usually pleasant soap website, where I read spoilers/recaps, but don’t post. In that example, the remarks weren’t necessarily about the Sam vs. Liz diehards or reflective of any particular characters, but just personally rude to certain contributors. Perhaps people are just so frustrated with the state of GH that they are lashing out at the wrong people or it’s reflective of a generally nasty mood currently taking hold in this country, but whatever the case, it’s truly uncalled for! I really miss the fun and festive atmosphere that once pervaded these pages….even when I didn’t have the time to post, I would always check the threads just to see what my favorites had to say, and maybe have a few laughs. Now it is sometimes almost done by rote, although I stick with it, because I consider many of these individuals to be friends, and I want to keep up with them, plus support this website along with what I hope shall be better days ahead for GH.

Hi Rose…I noticed the negative Emma comments…I too was beyond surprised at the negative reaction. I didn’t notice anything negative about Rebecca H-Liz. I havent heard if she resigned.Hope so!

I’m thrilled Michael Easton is coming back it would be nice to see him as a Cassadine and the new heir to the Cassidine fortune

I’m thrilled Bmichael Easton is coming back to GH

YES!!! So excited!! Bring on Michael Easton!! 😀 Hoping for a reunion with Sam!! Of course!! Just happy to have him back!!

Been there done that with Sam unsuccessfully. Enough already.

There is a fiery redhead that needs to join him and with whom he works so well with and that is Melissa Archer. Long overdue.

Jamie

Agreed Steph. They have played other roles and been apart for a few years. Would love to see them together again. It is long overdue. Archer and Easton sizzle whether they argue, talk or love. Miss them

Stephanie

They were awesome together. Get them back please!

MissySnow

Sure, let’s bring on another newbie to a bloated cast and I happen to like MA, but NOT at the expense of GH vets that can’t even get a scene on the show but once or twice a year!

Jamie

Glad for Michael. Hope he does well.

March 18 is a Friday: sounds like a cliffhanger to me! Can’t wait to see what the scribes come up with. This guy has so much charisma and charm. Very wise to bring him back before he is snapped up elsewhere.

Kathy

I don’t like when they take a character back from the dead and make them out to be a completely new person. I find it insulting. They should never have let him go in the first place.

LRae
LRae

I hope it isn’t a short stay as his old character coming back to help Kiki
through her recovery.

Melissa

I hope the opposite. In fact I will be quite upset if they made such a fuss just to bring him back short term.

Debbie Berg
Debbie Berg

I can’t to see Michael makes his debut , this is going to great It hasn’t been the same without him, so welcome back

Rose
Rose

This time I can agree with you about leaving him single for a while, or two. And even then it would have to be someone as intelligent as Laura or Anna to turn his head. Plus both need to get out of their ruts. Would like him mysterious but not the mobster, bod boy kind of wicked.

pam

I’m so glad to see him back and I hope It is for a very long haul to see him again on the gh soap.

Olivia
Olivia

I can’t wait to see Michael, he’s my favorite daytime actor. I would love to see him paired with Jordan, or someone totally new. Under no circumstances do I want to see Melissa Archer on General Hospital, she and Michael were terrible as a couple.

Trophy Lady
Trophy Lady

I agree with you 1000%!!! Jordan and ME would look great together, and there simply is no need to pair ME with Melissa Archer again. They NEVER worked. And boy did they try, and try, and try, and try to make them work on OLTL. Not at all interested in that Merry-Go-Round.

Olivia
Olivia

Michael Easton and Renee Goldsberry raised the bar, when it comes to daytime couples. The pairings he’s had since Renee are dead on arrival. Jordan could bring a similar chemistry he had with Renee, she’s the only one I see in the cast that could work with ME. I’ve read suggestions like Laura, Nina, Ava, and I don’t see any of those characters real possibilities.

Shay
Shay

I definitely cannot see the wisdom in re-pairing ME with either Ava or Nina….neither worked well the last time around….they are both poison for him!!!!! Also not high on the Jordan suggestion…besides she seems to be stuck on Andre. Lastly, I would love to have Laura get a love interest, whether it be Easton or someone else. Same for Anna. Both are so lovely and deserve some romance!

Kathryndenise63@gmail.com

THAT IS SOOOOOOO NOT TRUE MELISSA&MICHAEL WERE THE ABSOLUTE THE BEST SUPERCOUPLE OF OLTL FOR SOOOOOOO LONG & AND HAS THE MOST PHENOMENAL,MAGNIFICENT,FANTASTIC OUT-OF-ORBIT CHEMISTRY I HAVE EVER SEEN BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY REPEAT ABSOLUTELY NOT TERRIBLE!!!!!!! OH MY GOD! THEY WERE PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!! AND WHY WANT THEM RE-UNITED BACK TOGETHER SOOOOOOO BADLY!!!!!! AND I BELIEVE SHE IS GOING TO BE PLAYING CLAUDETTE! THEY SAID SHE’S BEEN CAST BUT FV HAS NOT ANNOUNCED WHO IT IS & HE SAID IT IS A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT & WE ALL KNOW HIS LOVE OF OLTL! HE WOULD NOT DELAY IT IF IT WERE NOT A TOP SOAP ACTRESS MELISSA(MA)! EITHER WAYYYYY CLAUDETTE OR WHOEVER SHE WOULD PLAY MELISSA NEEDS TO BE ON GH ASAP SHE WOULD BE BEYOND PHENOMENAL, SOOOOOOO MANY POSSIBILITIES,FV PLEASSSSSE HEAR ME &.MAKE IT HAPPEN DO IT BRING HER ON, I SAY BRING HER ON. IT IS WAYYYYYYY PAST TIME FOR HER TO BE ON GH ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON GH IN THE FIRST PLACE AS NATALIE WITH JOHN WHEN OLTL ENDED!!!!!!

Jenna
Jenna

Yes she should have been on GH with Michael. I agree

Beverly

Welcome back Michael – you have been missed!

Terri

When I found out he was returning I started shouting with joy I have missed him on my screen ! Welcome back Michael!!!

Rose
Rose

Just hope the writers give him a strong storyline line that he can own, and that makes snse with GH history…somewhere along the line.

Jay Trotter
Jay Trotter

I really beleive he is playing Valentin Cassadine and will be paired with Laura and he will battle his nephew Nikolas for control of the castle since he’ll be the oldest living heir.

miketom765
miketom765

I hope he’s for Laura, or Ava

Timmm
Timmm

It will be Laura. Once again she will fall for a Cassadine BUT her and Michael should have great chemistry.

Melissa
Melissa

Guys I just don’t see the Laura / ME thing working. At this point it’s hard to see Laura with anyone because they’ve turned her into a moralizing matron. This actress has history and range. Give her something to do besides babysitting and giving advice.

Trophy Lady
Trophy Lady

I’m THRILLED to pieces that Michael is returning to GH! He has been missed so, so much.

I do hope that they pair him and his new character with someone worthy. Quite honestly, ME has NEVER has the connection and irresistible spark that he had with Renee Elise Goldsberry. They were so explosive on OLTL. Ideally, I’d LOVE for Valentini to beg and plead for her to come back to daytime and promise that she’d be paired with ME. She’s currently the star of Hamilton on Broadway. Once her run ends, Valentini should be busting down her door, begging her to come over to GH.

As for those currently on GH, I’d LOVE for ME’s new character to be paired with Jordan! They’d be hot! And it wouldn’t be a bad deal if Jordan and Renee Elise Goldsberry were actually sisters! That would be quite cool. I think ME would also be great with Rebecca Budig. She’s such a cutie and I love the spunk her character has!

There should be NO MORE pairings with Kelly Monaco. They should also avoid pairing him with Ava and Nina. All three of these ladies have been with ME before, and it didn’t work. Let’s avoid it again, please. I think they just need to start fresh with ME.

I vote for bringing over Renee Goldsberry for him! Problem solved!

Olivia
Olivia

I’d love ME to be paired with Renee Goldsberry , they were magic together. Jordan is a great possibility, ME and her could create sparks.

Matt

Hope he is portraying a better, livelier character this time. Silas was a dud and I like ME.

Jess

Good luck to him. Uphill battle

CeeCee
CeeCee

I agree, Jess. You have vision, here. Most of us love Michael E. But, he’s going to have to prove himself over and over. This is his 4th appearance as a new character in a new role? Tough, indeed. That’s why I am praying it works well for him.

Tam
Tam

He and Archer rocked it! Get her back!

Barbara Eisner
Barbara Eisner

I think I’ve figured who Michael Easton will portray! Hayden’s (Rachel’s) father!! Remember how she spoke of him? I do think that was an unintentional (?) hint!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, Barbara, in that case, then we shall be faced with another Julian/Sam father-daughter incredible scenario. Michael and Rebecca are only 7 years apart.
However, I will grant you that anything is made believable on soaps…so, it could turn out that way.
I know that what I have said earlier, and will repeat again sounds far-fetched, but I have this feeling that Hayden is Edward’s illegitimate daughter. If not, then she is somehow very closely related to the Quartermaines.
Hayden just seems to have too much of a vested interest in this family. Just a thought.

Pete
Pete

Easton and Archer were awesome and sizzled. Plain and simple.

Tam
Tam

Yes indeed they did Pete and they definitely have unfinished business….

Paula

Oh yes they do. Capitalizing on that could bring in more OLTL fans and viewers.

Tim

Melissa and Michael that is.

OH YOU GOT THAT SOOOOOOO RIGHT CHEMISTRY IS SOOOOOOO GREAT FABULOUS!!!! THEY NEED TO BE ON GH TOGETHER!!!!! CLAUDETTE, CLAUDETTE, CLAUDETTE!!!!!!

Expectations are high, I want him to do well. The character of Silas was a let down following McBain.

Valentin Cassidine? That’d be an interesting kink seeing as Dr Finn is (handsome but) mysterious. We’ll take Michael Easton doing whatever as long as he stays. Thank you “the powers that be”.

Im glad to see ME return to GH, I thnk the show will be explosive if they could get Renee Goldsberry to return as a doctor or a cop and the be paired together. They really had the screen steaming on OLTL, they were really hot together.

NOOOOOOO WAYYYYYYY ME&MA STEAMED UP THE SCREEN HOT,HOT,HOT, BEYOND PHENOMENAL JOVAN STUNK TO HIGH HEAVEN GOD I HATED THEM SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!

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.

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!”

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.
