Spoiler – if you have not watched then do not read further.

I was not happy with who the father is not of Scarlett’s baby.

The writers are not using Jonathan Jackson in the right way. He is not a prop for other characters. Avery won our dislike and now our hearts, do not waste the character.

Just love Daphne. She is a treasure and age appropriate. So believable.

Zach is simply not right for Will.

It was soap writing 101 to make him the father of Scarlett’s baby, though. That will make drama for sure.

Hm, I don’t see Avery as a “prop.” He and Juliette are equally important to that story of their relationship.

Yes, the actress playing Daphne is wonderful. They wrote Maddie a little callous about her mom’s death in that episode, I thought.

Just glad that Will has any sort of story and I like how they are playing it that Will is just kind of in awe of the fact he could land a boyfriend with Zach’s money, prestige, fame, etc. That’s believable. We’ll see what happens when that glow wears off!

I agree, Calie. I was disappointed, too, in the baby daddy reveal. But, as sonniorsolita says…it’s a soap.

Love Daphne, too. She’s adorable. Not only is she dealing with her mom’s death but her own dad, Teddy, is in jail. It’s natural that she feels like an outsider…although Deacon is trying so hard to make her feel loved and reassured that she’s like his own…the truth is that Maddie and him share that father/daughter bond. I’m also impressed by both sisters voices. They were always great but they sound even better!

I’m hating the gospel angle. And, I still miss Luke and Layla….

Oh! And they better not fire Rayna’s manager!!!

Oh, Calie, thanks for saying it. Will deserves so much better than Zach. Zach just seems superficial, at least so far. Will’s real chemistry is with Gunnar and I love the subtleties Chris Carmack reveals with little looks toward his “best friend” that show so much more. I’ve been in that position and the pain never goes away. Overall, I’m glad our show is staying put for a while. We need more Will, more live performances, less Maddie and some new eye candy for Will (and us) and some strong, talented ladies to add to the mix. Also, stop chopping off Sam Palladio’s hair!

haha…agree! I liked Gunnar’s look best the first season. So good-looking! I’ve gotten used to Charlotte’s shorn locks…she has beautiful hair and I missed it at first but now I can’t see her going back to it.

“We need more Will, more live performances, less Maddie and some new eye candy for Will (and us) and some strong, talented ladies to add to the mix. ”
Hear, hear, Soaphound!

Also, if Will and Gunnar “go there,” that would be a soapy plot twist for sure! Imagine the scrunched-up look on Scarlett’s face, lol!

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.

NASHVILLE To Become Broadway Musical

Looks like the Music City drama, Nashville, originally on ABC and then on CMT, has more than nine lives! Now the popular soap is headed to the stage and Broadway after six seasons on the small screen.

The show is set to have a musical adaptation with 10-time Tony Award winner Scott Delman (American IdiotRagtimeBook of MormonHello, Dolly!Fun HomeMean Girls) in charge.  In addition, Delman will serve as lead producer of the show and he has acquired the live theatrical rights from Lionsgate and ABC Studios.

Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material,” Delman said in a statement. “From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters.  We are particularly excited to deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music — a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years. Lionsgate has a treasure-trove of sterling IP, and I’m honored to be a part of this new phase of their live entertainment division.”

Additional information on the upcoming musical, including production dates and a creative team, is expected to be announced shortly.  Now the question becomes; will some of its beloved series stars be in the Broadway rendition of the series?
