New General Hospital Promo: Jake Says To Sam: "Can You Help Me Find Out Who I Really Am?"

ABC has released its latest promo for the action this week in Port Charles.

Top among the storyline themes finds Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) trying on her wedding headdress in her mirror and saying, “This is really happening!”  As Liz is psyched for her upcoming wedding to Jake (Billy Miller), it looks like it may set up a race against time.  That’s because from the the looks of the promo  Jake had now asked Sam (Kelly Monaco) to help him figure out who he truly is!  In it,  he phones Sam and asks for her help.

Will Sam ultimately be the person to out Elizabeth and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) for keeping the secret of his Jake’s true identity?  We know that it seems that Sam will enlist Spinelli to help her crack this mystery with the return of Bradford Anderson.

Meanwhile, Laura (Genie Francis) knows the truth about Jake,  and Hayden (Rebecca Budig)  is trying to piece together what happened before she was shot.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) is also featured in the promo yelling at his sons: Michael (Chad Duell) and Morgan (Bryan Craig) for getting involved in mob business with the five families.

Watch the latest promo from ABC.  Then tell us, how do you think the Jake will reveal will finally play itself out? Will Sam find out the truth and stop the wedding of Jake and Liz … or not?  Comment below!

Have always thought that Spinelli would have a hand in finding out, would really love for Sam , Spinelli and Jake to find out together.

I think Sam will find out who Jake really is just before his wedding with Liz . Or it could be right after the vows are spoken & than the wedding would be nulled because he is already married !!

aria

now we really know jake is jason with brain damage, i mean asking sam to help him solve or figure out who he is, Sam hasn’t ever solved any case, these two might just really belong together after all, liz deserves better. Lucky is worthless, Jason is well not so bright and nicolas, has been turned into his father, liz needs a completely new men.

Jason has had so many brain surgeries and brain injuries I’m surprised he isn’t played by Gary Busey, who’s career never recovered from the head trauma he sustained from a motor cycle accident.

For everyone’s sake I hope he doesn’t get another brain injury.

How many surgeons have stuck their hands under his skull. One more and he fills his punch card for a free surgery?

Dan
Dan

Lol, a free surgery and complimentary oil change while you wait, at GH Brain Surgery & Lube!

Torgumada! You have no idea how much your comment amused me. I loved it, loved it, I tell ya!
But remember, Gary Busey is busy preparing to be Donald Trump’s running mate.

It’s strange how Jake suddenly cares who he is. We’ve been told over and over again as the audience he doesn’t want to know lending me to believe it’s ok Liz kept the secret. Regardless, the reveal will happen and I’m hoping for well written chacter driven material over plot points.

Iakovos

I hope so, too. Maybe the perceived Jake turnaround is a quick new direction by the new writers to restore Jason to being Jason? I just hope Jason makes the most of this incredible new lease on life. To have him settle into the mob life again would be just plain stupid.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I think the reason Jake is anxious about finding out his true identity is because Laura put the thought in his head. Her words about not knowing if he has a family out there probably waiting for him, sitting in limbo, gave him pause. So, of course, Sam will be front and center helping him. This is as much about har as it is him. Did you doubt it for a minute that the writers would turn the focus on these two, Crystal? LOL…..at this point, I’ll take anything which could potentially speed the process of ‘finding’ Jason. And, it will take air time away from Sonny and company…two birds with one stone. Well, except for Michael…there is the prospect of him becoming a daddy.
I just wish Shay would check in, especially now….Sabrina is expecting. I want your take on this, Shay. Is it Michael’s? He’s the only one with whom she’s sleeping, right? Where are you, Shay? I miss you!

su0000
su0000

yah .. Sabrina’s baby will be Michaels..
She has only been with him. Even Though we have not even seem them getting all hot and doing the nasty, yup it’s Michales. or-
it could be an immaculate conception story ahaa!

and– Jason will go back to the mob in one way or another because that is who/what he is, a mobster.
‘sides, what else could he do lol be a waiter at the MC ..
even if a Q he knows zip about big business and he would never ever settle as being a desk jockey, no way.. not who he is..
Jason and Sonny will have a great reuniting, they are brothers in their own right.

Harry

I agree, Cee Cee, which gives us Laura fans yet another reason to love Laura.

I think Helena has captured Shay!

@su.
Hey, Su.
Jake could resume his profession of helping people, su. I thought Jason Q was a doctor? Or an intern? Well, before he was turned into the Frankenstein’s monster, anyway. Correct me if I’m wrong. Later.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@su.
PS.
Sorry, su, for being annoying. But, it just came to me that Valerie could also be pregnant. Now, Lulu and Dante will be going through the medical process of getting pregnant. What if the procedure goes awry? They only have one shot. Enter Dr. O. She will take the embryo from Val and put it into Lulu. Voila’?

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Timmm.
HaHa, Timmm… Oh, Shay can take care of Helena. Shay will just mesmerize her by giving Helena one her beautifully written pieces.
Actually, Timmm, I have received a post from her in my inbox. Glad to have heard from her.

Shay
Shay

@Timmm….No, Helena has NOT captured me,, but I strongly suspect she may be moonlighting as a moderator here at MFSoaps, because my posts are definitely being held hostage! All I have to do is make mention of “Sappy,” “Alexis” or a variety of other apparently controversial topics in my remarks and “POOF!”….they are gone!….I’ve lost count of how many replies to CeeCee, Harry and you have disappeared.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Shay.
So, you’ve been here all along. Unbelievable!!!!!! I told you, Shay. ‘Someone’ is a member of the moderating team. I just wonder if our posts are presented to Mr. Fairman before appearing on the boards. Probably not. The point of hiring moderators would be moot, yes? Well, I can kiss this comment goodbye! Lol.
If we could see Alexis in a different setting other than the one offered us….that is, in perpetual dishabille , we would not be tempted to comment on this oversexed matron.
It’s a shame, really, because I like her and the writers are doing her talent a disservice. They just keep on portraying both Alexis and Julian as teen angers whose hormones are running on a wild rampage….it makes them look like thieves in the night, sneaking around in search of a clandestine tryst.

Shay
Shay

Well, not exactly ALL along, CeeCeeGirl…I did take a brief “timeout” because trying to post here became a nearly complete exercise in futility. But since I’ve “returned,” I’ve sent about a half-dozen responses to your remarks alone—on various threads—and you have received, what, maybe half of them???? For example, I actually replied to your last post here immediately after my remarks to Timmm….that’s gone, and all I discussed were the topics you broached! (Oh, I did attempt a resend on that other thread as you’ve requested…fingers crossed!) Having said that, of course, I agree with your assessment of Alexis and Julian….they look like ridiculous, sex-crazed adolescents….their behavior is way past stale! We are not the only ones who have repeatedly made this pronouncement, yet, these two continue to be presented as such. How ludicrous! Ditto for the characters oft-named not just by me, but many different contributors here, that we wish to see less of, if not at all….again, no change in that situation either!!! I thought that in addition to sharing thoughts and having lighthearted fun with other daytime fans here at MFSoaps, the idea was to provide feedback to whomever from the prospective shows cares to take a looky-loo at our unvarnished, true reactions to the product(s) they are pushing. If we are not satisfied, and that would certainly appear to be the case for GH given the dismal ratings, then why wouldn’t our honestly-expressed reviews be taken for what they are? They are just opinions, after all, and many are absolutely fascinating to behold….why some of ours are seemingly considered so controversial as to be deemed unsuitable for inclusion online is beyond me. Oh well….onward and upward….I hope you get this latest effort of mine!…Later!!!!

Harry
Harry

SHAY! How utterly frustrating for you as well as for those of us who enjoy your snappy writing which makes some of us roar with ribald laughter. The very idea that your pearls of wisdom, gems of narrative prose and treasures of witticisms, disappeared is quite vexing to me.
I do not understand the filtering/moderation process of various sites.
For instance, I recently wrote a Yelp review which was put in the filter bin which Yelp calls “Reviews not Recommended.” It’s the pile of shame for Yelp reviewers. Allow me to brag–I write really good and somewhat funny reviews and they are predicated upon my real life experience with a business establishments. This review in particular was about a vacuum cleaner store and their repair service. I wrote that the vacuum which I purchased from this establishment ,and which they subsequently serviced, sucked big time. Now see? I explained that sucking in this case was a good thing and went on to say my vacuum sucked with amazing horsepower. But the word ‘suck’ just automatically kicked my review into the pile of Yelp shame. Perhaps something similar is being employed here.
Perhaps the following phrases and arrangement of words will automatically make comments go POOF! Consider the following: Sappy, Sparkle Pony, Val Chops, Princess Collection, cleavage as big as the Ritz, and finally, huffing and puffing like a couple of adolescent horn dogs in heat.
Let us see if this post even comes through. In any case, I think I may be on to something. And Shay? Unlike my vacuum, you do not SUCK!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, I hear you, ShayGirl. I will never understand why this couple has been targeted to act as High Schoolers playing hooky, and ending up, unfailingly, in bed. And, once again, I had to suffer a frontal view of Julian in his drawers. I find that particular picture offensive. One’s eyes can’t help going there. And if the moderators can’t see it’s not our words that are improper, but ‘that’ image, then, something’s rotten in Denmark. However, I do have confidence in the moderators who tediously ‘sift’ through our labor of ‘love’…lol. Perhaps it would not bother me so much had they been boxers, instead of extra-short jockeys. I don’t want to even see a hint of IT? Disgusto……and, their childish banter…..don’t get me started on that!
I think that the reason some of our posts don’t make it is because there are a few chosen words that make bells go off. Perhaps, it isn’t the moderators at all, but a machine set to smell and weed out certain words, such as Harry’s mot du jour; SUCK. LOL.
Nontheless, it’s baffling how some posters can attack fellow-posters by getting a free pass.meanwhile, we cannot express our feelings of certain characters. I ask; is that fair?
I do like Nancy, but, I must admit, Alexis gets on my nerves, albeit that’s not my fault. That moue meant to be cute and charming looks ridiculous on her. The lisp affectation, even worse. So, the character/actress would get a lot more respect if the writers would write the role in a more mature way…..in plain English. HAVE HER ACT HER AGE!! Her daughter Molly exudes more sofistication and maturity than she does. How did she manage to rear such a well-rounded young lady? Did she go to finishing school? I did. LOL.
It feels great doing this with you, again. But, I have not heard a peep out of you about Sam, Liz, Ava, Val, Sabrina…well, all the ladies, gracing the sinful ‘ Naked City’ (lol) of Port Charles, ShayShay. What say you? Buonanotte, cara.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Shay.
Now, Shay…that was a stupid thing for me to ask your opinion on the ladies of Port Charles.. But, you have given it….just didn’t make it. I DEMAND you do it again…LOL.
I am also curious to know what you think of Baby Boy Doll, Michael ( as Timmm describes him) suddenly becoming a turncoat by joining Sonny’s tainted camp. Michael’s ‘malvitoso’, seemingly tough exterior, just doesn’t cut it….not with those dufusy eyes and soft skin. Ridiculous. Here he is !!!! What are TPTB trying to make him do? Pick up the reins where Sonny, the fake ‘contrabbandiere’ left them?
Also, do you remember a while back when doe-eyed Dante and Lulu started talking about a second baby? I had said that I believed Emme to be pregnant, ergo the renewed talk about trying again. I also think that Valerie will be pregnant. That mix-up with the little white bags to either stir/start trouble or to deflect a true Valerie-pregnancy was stupid. So obvious!!!! I think she is pregnant with Dante’s baby. What a mess. There will be hell to pay..a mayhem of switching babies, dying babies, incubated babies…not looking forward to that!! …..who is the father, whose baby belongs to whom?? Three pregnancies, Shay. If I am completely off the mark, I will eat a few of my mother’s Borsalinos. A piu’ tardi, bella.

Shay
Shay

See???? It worked like a charm, CeeCeeGirl! Since you seem to be aware of my musings, does that mean you actually received them this time even though they didn’t make it online???? At least that’s progress….LOL. As for those further sentiments you requested….maybe later, mia amica. I’m just checking in right now, and I don’t have the inclination to add to the moderating garbage pile at the moment.

Shay
Shay

@Harry….Well, so much for that theory, but thank you just the same for your generous—and characteristically witty—words, Sir! I cannot tell you the number of occasions when I have so enjoyed one of your quick quips and have responded in kind, only to have my replies refused. (Just the ones about that verboten “Sparkle Pony” are pretty much countless!) Whilst I have never been prone to harboring feelings of persecution, it is rather dispiriting to so frequently not be allowed to join in the immense merriment that CeeCee, jimh, Timmm, and you, amongst many others, bring to this website. My firmly tongue-in-cheek remarks are always meant in jest….just a bit of fun. You definitely get that….perhaps you should apply for the position of “Chief Moderator” here….I would feel very safe entrusting my posts to your sense of judgment, not to mention, humor!!!! At any rate, thanks again for your support, and for sharing your hilarious suggestions and “Yelp” experience with all of us!!!! (Oh, and for the record, you certainly do not $#@% either!…..)

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

Jake has all these flashbacks about Sam, Danny runs to him, Spin calls him Stone Cold, Sonny calls him Jason, and he and no one else can put two and two together?…You would think someone with no past might wonder if he could be Jason, especially since he knew he and Robin were captives of Helene Cassidine!…and with Jasons body never found and Patrick knowing Jake and Jason had similiar brain surgery you would think others would wonder if he could be Jason?…Guess they all could use brain surgery!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

This show also has bad amnesia and has forgotten Monica, Mac and Felicia characters and Nathans who-ya-daddy plot!

You would think with all of the clues someone would figure Jake is Jason. But then the Port Charles PD never seems to solve cases either.

I am applauding your brilliance, Harry and jimh. Its bright light radiates though the air waves….

Mary SF

I don’t want Sam to be the one who figures out the truth– I mean the truth has been staring her in the face all this time and she hasn’t managed to put it together yet, so what fun will it be watching her get a clue now— Personally, I rather have Liz finally get a backbone and confess— at the altar, just as they about to exchange vows, when the part comes– does anyone know of any reason why these two cannot be join in marriage speak now or forever hold your peace– Liz speaks and spills her guts– that will be a very soapy way to make the reveal.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, I agree, Mary. I have said this from the get go. Liz coming forward with the truth is the only way she can be redeemed. I must say, she is such a good actress….as credible as she is beautiful. I beg for the writers not to let her plunge deeper and deeper in this black hole she has created for herself….please! So disappointed in this character. But, as I also said before….if the writers plan to couple Jake with Sam, then Liz must be the scapegoat to allow for that plan to be conceived and develop.

This story line needed to wrap up a year ago.

Remember when DAYS spent over a year with two dudes claiming to Roman Brady which set up the never ending so who is John Black, which has returned. Y&R strung out the it’s Adam story line for year.

These storylines are so uninteresting. Casting changes happen, audiences can keep up. END this never interesting story line.

Mister Media

This story has outlasted my interest in it. I just hope the aftermath is worth it.

I think Jake/Jason is going to crash Sam’s wedding. Emma maybe right…

ces

or someone crashes Jake/Jason & Elizabeth’s

su0000
su0000

I do not want Sam and Jason/Billy together..
Sam is a lackluster downer, Billy/Jason will be brought down to boring with her.
Jason and Sam are so over.
Sam is just not interesting no matter what she does who she is with it is always a big snore.

Billy has charisma, a lot of charisma.. the Sam character will kill it and drag Jason down into her lackluster void.

FREE JASON !!

Harry
Harry

I kind of agree with you, Su00. Sam is also dumb as a box of rocks.
Let’s see–Sonny, Spinelli, Danny, a blind old Chinese woman have all called Jake Jason. Jake reacted like a stone cold, professional hit man when he saved Sonny and finally, everyone knows he has a new face.
For a PI, Sam has terrible instincts as well as a lousy sense of style.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I agree, Su.. But billy needs to find out who he is for multiple reasons. Both he and Sam need closure. Danny needs to know his father as much as Jake needs to know his son.
I just don’t like to see Sam and Patrick to be torn apart, though…..just when I started to like them together….Patrick AND Emma will be so hurt. She already is experiencing her little girl fears…..poor kid.
Methinks you are right about Sam and Jake. I said this before. Jake needs to be free for a while….And, he will do that on his own when he realizes what Liz has done. He needs to take Port Charles in….breathe the newfound, yet familiar, salubrious air which can only heal him. But, on top of the list , he should STAY AWAY from Sonny and his contagion.

stacy williams
stacy williams

He got more chemistry with sam than lizabitch she is boring dont make jason boring with her gh forget lizabhitch she had her chance and decided she couldn’t be with jason cause of the danger she needs to take two seats now she wants jason well jason jake is boring with her he has too much time on his hands always at the hospital ugh thats a waste of good talent and I hope they find out before Patrick get hurt I heard hes leaving anyways when his contract up in october he wants to try different things instead of soaps

Harry

Sometimes, a period (.) can be your best friend.

Sam will find out swing open the church door wearing white go go boots and stop the wedding. Remember the snooze sisters are writing this as Suoo calls them so it is a repeat of Nick and Sharon on Y&R’s wedding.

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

At Sam and Patricks wedding with little Danny as ringbearer, Jake now Jason stands in the doorway…Danny turns, sees Jason and exclaims, “Daddy!” then in slow motion Danny runs into Jasons arms as a stunned Sam and Patrick look on…Patrick ,
exasperated, grumbles, “Damn, not again! This is just like when Robin appeared when i was to marry Emmas sappy nanny Sabrina!’…lol

Harry
Harry

HA! Kay, and as Nancy Sinatra sang,”These boots were made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do, one of these days these boots will walk all over Lizzy….ready boots? Start walking!”
Excuse the loose paraphrasing.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Didn’t the same thing happen when Patrick and Sabrina were at the altar? Robin opened that ‘infamous’ door too. Poor Emma….she’ll be disappointed and hurt tenfold. Just for that Harry, “….these boots are gonna walk all over Lizzie” would be so satisfying.

Fanny

Thank goodness Spin will be helping Sam put the pieces together, otherwise we
could be looking at the NEVER ending & borrrrrrrrrrrring “Who is Jake Doe” saga.

Harry
Harry

Fanny, did you know Sam has been reading “Where’s Waldo?” Not to her son Danny, mind you, but to herself. She’s been trying to find Waldo since she was about five years old! Sam still cannot find Waldo and she still cannot find the love of her life who might as well be wearing a T shirt which reads,”I am really Jason.”

Fanny
Fanny

@Harry…Hi Omar…
It’s really unfortunate but Sam comes across as a dodo bird,
her character had such potential. Yet she hasn’t really out
grown the younger version of herself and evolved into this
confident woman. Her facial expressions alone… drive me
NUTS…Has no one ever told her that excessive squinting,
closing her eyes and touching her forehead only makes
her look dazzzzed and confused. Hopefully Fiona’s acting
will rub off on Kelly.

Lucy D.
Lucy D.

Well they essentially had Emma be like the Oracle at Delphi today. Obviously someone is going to crash a wedding. The interesting part is Sam & Patrick said they’re not going to get married BEFORE Liz & Jake. So either Sam is going to crash Jake’s wedding (or Spinelli) or Robin comes back with the truth–not knowing Elizabeth knows.

Interesting that Hayden knows for sure now. (And they’ve never explained why no one has come looking for Hayden either).

Ces
Ces

lol, right?
But what if someone breaks up the wedding …. thanks for the heads up Emma!

I LIKE WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK, IT IS A GREAT BEGINNING FOR THE NEW WRITERS. I AM SURE THERE WILL BE MORE FAVORABLE COMMENTS FROM THE FANS. I HAVE BEEN WITH GH SINCE THE BEGINNING AND HAVE ALWAYS LOVED IT AND ALL OF THE CHARACTERS. I THINK YOU SHOULD KEEP SONNY AND HIS FAMILY, FOR A LONG TIME THEY SHARED THE SHOW, I AM NOT SURE IT WOULD BE THE SAME WITHOUT HIM. HE IS SUCH A GOOD ACTOR AND SO IS THE OTHER MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY. IT SEEMS WITH THE NEW WRITERS, THEY ARE SHOWING A BIT OF BOTH. I WOULD SAY, LET THEM SHARE, LIKE YOU ARE NOW DOING.

Timmm
Timmm

Too late! Even Y&R unmasked Gabe and they did it in the beginning of October! They have plenty to play off of Adam’s identity. Same with GH. Unmask Jake NOW and there is plenty to play out for November sweeps! But no, they constantly stall and rehash with flashbacks we had just seen FIVE minutes ago! Its bad. I will NOT stop watching but I’m afraid there will be nothing to watch soon! How many posts in the last year alone have fans vented about all the useless characters on this show and them not using the character we want! Nathan, Morgan, Michael, Valerie, Lulu, Maxie, Julian, Sabrina, Dante, CUT THEM! And if Laura mopes around from door to door interrupting hot sex and has nothing to add to the show, CUT HER TO! For god sakes, Billy Miller will be in primetime before we know it!

Harry
Harry

Timm, I agree. I am tired of some soaps waiting for sweep months for their great reveals.
Kudos the Y&R for not employing that same cheap and transparent tactic.

Timmm
Timmm

Billy Miller’s first year anniversary is this month and Justin’s is next month. We waited long enough for the reveal! Look how exciting Y&R is this week! GH is dismal!

Mary Ellen

No, Robin will be the one, she is the one who saved him to begin with, it makes sence for her to be the one to reveal Jason.

Timmm
Timmm

Thats a good theory but where the hell is Robin?

Torqumada
Torqumada

The actress ain’t coming back ever.

And die hard fans would claw the flesh off the poor soul tasked with the recast.

This role should have been recast. The actress is no longer an actress ( which is fine because she had the good sense to realize her true talent wasn’t in front of a camera).

The character needs to return, but not the very lovely and thoughtful person who originated the role at age six.

Timmm
Timmm

@Torqumada. I know, Kim has been there forever but they need the character and its not the “General Robin” show so recast and do it with Finola involved. I applaud Kim for moving on and fulfilling her dreams. If they can replace Steve Burton they can replace Kimberly McCullough!

Harry
Harry

Better yet, if the were able and willing to recast Lucky, not once but twice, then why can’t they recast Robin which is less than a formidable task?
I love KM’s Robin–I really do. I watched her grow up on screen. But I do feel she is replaceable and I do think she ought to be recast.
I am a fan but you will not see me, as Torgumada put it so well, “claw the flesh off the poor soul tasked with the recast.”
It’s time to recast Robin as she is vital to these stories.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you, 3-ems. Oh, yeah ! MR BLUE SKY…..love it!!!!! That and DON’T BRING ME DOWN, which is another song Jude ( my husband) sings to me, when I’m mad at him. Lol.
Who do you like better, Victor or Sonny? You better give me the right answer, or else.
Do you think, Eric is retiring? If so, is Justin being groomed to take his place? I would LOVE that. I’d like to see what Justin/Adam can do at his best….or worst ( as a ruthless spawn of Victor’s). Luv-ya.

I hope Spinelli figures it out. He’s the best choice. He can have his Stonecold back.

BTY, is it true that Jason Thompson (Patrick) is leaving GH?
Does anyone know?

Fanny

Really ???????

Harry
Harry

Fanny, Jason Patrick is allegedly frustrated with the writing afforded to Patrick. This brilliant and once arrogant doctor is now relegated to being Sam’s purse holder and he has to listen to her talk about Jason 24/7.
I swear she says Jason while in the throes of passion with Patrick. Patrick, Jason Thompson deserves better than this.

CeeCee

@Harry.
Now, now, Harry. There’s nothing wrong for a guy to hold his mate’s purse.

Timmm

Spin and Billy Miller should be good together. I would love it if Monica were the one to figure it out. Remember her?

As for JT, the only thing I’ve heard so far is he is unhappy the way his character has been written lately, ie, he has had very little to do! One soap is rumored to be interested in him as a recast. Speculation?

CeeCee
CeeCee

Monica should have been the first to have recognized her son, if she were around more than a second, Timmm. I guess they’ve all been reading WHERE’S WALDO? together. So funny, that Harry…HaHa.

True that, Ms. Cee Cee. Unfortunately, while Patrick is either holding Sabrina’s purse or Sam’s purse, he is unable to hold onto his balls.

Yes hes leaving so I know jasam getting bk together yes cant wait either and nic should be with hyden shes the one nic needs in his life

Dylan

How can people with no legal identity get married? They need blood tests…identification…signatures. Maybe if someone mentioned he had the same rare blood type as Jason…someone…maybe even the BRILLIANT P.I. Sam….might add that to the 473 other clues….and ask a question or 14!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

How? You ask, Dylan? Well, these are the same people who will have divorced couples remarry in the Catholic Church (Roman CC) over and over. Any Roman Catholic who went through religion class and THE CATECHISM, who knows the laws of said church, is aware that one cannot remarry in the church. It is a no-no. One would have to be a widow/widower, get an annulment from the Vatican, which is the same as a special dispensation. Some people will argue that fact/law. I don’t agree with it, but, until Canon Law changes, it is what it is. A body cannot even marry in the church without having received all the sacraments. ….very strict and restrictive.
So, Dylan …I said this before; soaps have their own set of laws/codes for everything. Sonny probably compiled those rules and regulations.

su0000
su0000

CeeCee..
that is why they get married by internet ordained ministers, friend or family member, and get married under trees., and it’s low budget, that is very good lol.

Soaps have no laws or rules with exception of great naked sex the way I see it it’s the only regulation LOL :)..

Shay

@CeeCee…..GH has been playing fast and loose with the rules of the RCC for quite some time. We had a huge discussion here about it during the Sappy and Patrick “wedding interruptus.” (Hat tip to Harry for the charming description…) During that nuptial farce, the writers had Lucy Coe officiating the vows with not a priest in sight….as if anybody could just traipse into a Catholic church and conduct a marriage ceremony! As far as I am aware, the only way even actual ordained clergy of other faiths can assist in a Catholic church service is as a concelebrant with a priest presiding….yet, there was “Floocy” in all of her scatterbrained glory running the show by her lonesome! (Like one could just rent the church for the atmosphere, with no rules to abide whatsoever!) I realize that all soaps take creative liberties, but there should be at least a modicum of respect for religious conventions when such a “holy” location is utilized.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Shay.
That is exactly my point, Shay. Not only is it disrespectful, it is sacrilegious to even contemplate “renting” the Church as one would a wedding reception. Yes, soaps are tantamount to fantasy, I will grant that. But, why not throw a little realism in there? It’s almost like making a mockery of what my Church and its convictions represent. There is a fine line here, Shay. One should tread easy in crossing it, poetic license or not. Later.

Shay
Shay

Very true, CeeCee! The last regime appeared to take a particular delight in offending those of the RC persuasion…between flaunting unheard of practices and that truly distasteful “crypt tryst,’ it was truly revolting. I simply don’t understand the intolerance….even if you don’t agree with the basic tenets of “The Church,” there are certainly enough others out there to provide a place of comfort and sanctuary for most any point of view, and in this country, one is free to go in search of what suits one. It’s rather puzzling to me why that is not enough for some people.

Timmm
Timmm

You are so smart CeeCee! BTW, ELO, “Mr. Blue Sky” best song ever!

Dan

I’m glad this storyline is finally moving towards a conclusion. It’s the story that would never end. If RC were still the head writer, we might not have seen the Jason reveal until the 2020 November sweeps. At least now it looks like we might see it by the end of the year. I honestly don’t even care about if Jason ends up with Sam, Elizabeth, or the waitress at Kelly’s. I just want this story to conclude, so everyone can move on.

Aside from the fact is TV fiction 1) I don’t think you need blood tests anymore to get married. 2) Jake obviously has been issued a state ID (driver’s license) so if the state accepts you’re Jake Doe and gives you a DL, he can get married

The new writers came in this week, and we are in full swing to reveal this Jake/Jason secret. Thank goodness Laura came back to drill this in his head to find out who he really is. I wonder why there wasn’t an announcement that the new writers showed up already. I had to read the GH credits to find out. P.S. Sonny in a wheelchair = meaty material.

Maybe Laura, Nicholas, Elizabeth and Hayden can all jump up and say “hey Jake, its you Jason!”
Seriously, the whole damn town knows but I’m sure Sweeps week will finally make the reveal. Should I even bother following it until then?
It’s gotten absurd.
Frankly, at this point, I like Sami with Patrick and their little family. She obviously ain’t feeling IT for Jake. This isn’t like John & Marlena where Marlena fell in love with John Black and it turned out to be Roman — Sam is not in love with Jake!
End the story.

Liz needs help, at first you think I like them together but then you know she’s wrong.
I think Liz is so far gone it’s just very sad now.

CeeCee

I got that impression, as well, Jane. Trying on the different styles of her crowning-wedding-glory; the veil (symbol of virginity—-guffaws), primping this way and that gave me pause….Well the woman is definitely disturbed. That’s what I used to do with my mother’s clothes/shoes at the age of six.
I think Miss Lizzie is in LaLaLand. Her reality is skewed with an altered mental state. I bet this is where the story will eventually go. The men in white will come collect her.
It takes either a screwed-up brain or courage to go on with everyday life like this.

CeeCee I totally agree, I think she has lost her mind, doesn’t she realize her wedding won’t even be real, Jake(Jason) is already married. Even if they do say I do it won’t be real. She’s completely in lalaland and her character becomes more pathetic every day

I am glad the great reveal which has taken al whole year to transpire has just about arrived, Now I know their are new writers I really hope they end this story right. Because this one right here could make or break General Hospital I hope GH is listening to the vast majority of the fans! Make Liz go away! Put Jason and Sam together! I personally think GH should allow Jason & Sam to kiss! And watch his entire memory come back! Do not make Jason change a lot! His edge is what makes him special! OK GH the ball is in your court! Play it right!

Somebody please save GH! It is unwatchable to this diehard, lifetime ABC soap fan. I’m roughly two weeks behind because I just can’t watch it. Last night I tried getting through the episode where Sam & Jakeson meet up at their restaurant, and Liz & Patrick drone on and on about I don’t even know or care what. It was dreadful. I want to love GH so much and would be so happy to invest 5 hours a week of my life in this show for just the bare minimum. I don’t want this show cancelled. It has a talented cast, years of history, and an audience who wants nothing more than to support it. But I tried so hard to think of just one character or storyline I love enough to watch this show on a regular basis and sadly couldn’t come up with even one. 🙁 At this point I’ve entered Guza Years apathy and that is when I stopped watching it last time. But then I still had my beloved OLTL.

When I pick watching B&B over GH, there is a problem.

“… I tried so hard to think of just one character or storyline I love enough to watch this show on a regular basis and sadly… ”

here, here

the one character, that comes to mind : as i’ve posted for eon; Tyler Christopher is LEADing the cast

the story potential for his character ; only if; Hayden just gives up, her , goes nowhere, blackmail… on Nicholas… it just aint happening… unless the love thing… takes over.

she simply must partner, pair, and pummel… any one… who dares to take ELQ from the nuERA… ELQ is helmed by the Cassadine… so be it

??? why not… the head writing team.. doesnt want to premiere and gala the Quartermaine… even if Billy Miller has the cajones to frontburner

I am really quite surprised at all the lovelorn and past tense… ??? of Jason and Sam… Hello? Steve Burton… kudos, to him… carried this pairing… Kelly Monaco did nothing but strut her stilletos and black clothing like… and sports bra’ed her team… LOL…. purred her hot kittens… ala Carly… and goes nowhere

her dead like eyes… with all characters on the canvas is reeling… ???? add her monotone …. argh! brain freeze!

Liz … has that it factor…. that daytime should throne pay bucku get out of the way this lady heralds

you know ??? I really will soapbox… just how much I love to laud… Amelia Heinle… 2 time emmy winner… and yes… !!!! her 2nd emmy win… was … in fact… without… Billy Miller… she’s not so bad after all… it’s taking Billy Miller… since his debut.. this long to catch fire ???? OK.. not his fault.. just saying… I loved him on Y&R with Victoria

dang… I am bamboozled at the fan must… that he’s holding court… with; Carly, Sam… and ugh! Sonny !

thanks for the let, venting

I am in contention… that at this point… (waiting for what the new head writing team will deliver, mid-october)

I haven’t been watching…

prop and celebrate the cast… ??? I take this to heart… it’s painstaking how Michelle Stafford, Roger Howarth, Maura West… Kathleen Gati, Billy Miller, Rebecca Herbst, Tyler Christopher, Rebecca Buddig, and many more plus… are wasting

it’s so much more about missing… what isn’t

I agree that this has gone on way too long. Perhaps all the characters left in the dark about Jason’s identity were secretly labotomized or subjected to some other weird mind altering. Kind of like Little Jake with his spooky children of the corn vibe. So disturbing.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart Talks on Valentin’s Downfall and Potential Rise to Power

After all his bravado, machinations and lies to keep the woman he loves, and believing he was the rightful heir to the Cassadine fortune, suddenly it all came crashing down for Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) on recent episodes of General Hospital.

Payback can be a bitch, but for Valentin; who’s past has been fraught with numerous physical and emotional tribulations since his childhood, he now finds himself at the lowest point in his life; losing Nina (Cynthia Watros) who’s now taken up with Jax (Ingo Rademacher), realizing he is the biological son of the evil Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), and not Mikkos, and having all his best laid plans and misdeeds backfire.  (Remember, he shot and “killed” Nikolas, and set up the ruse that led Sasha to pretend she was Nina’s bio-daughter.)  Now, enter Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), who could very well hold the ticket, to Valentin’s rise to wealth and power all over again.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with James Patrick Stuart to get the lowdown on: those heavy and emotional scenes opposite Constance Towers, working with Cynthia Watros as his newest Nina, if Valentin might really kill Jax the next time he thinks about it, and what about a potential relationship between Anna (Finola Hughes) and Valentin?

Not many can play bad as good as James in this industry.  He does it so effortlessly and still brings out the humanity in the guy that has t-r-o-u-b-l-e written all over him.  Here’s what James had to share about all of Valentin’s recent dramatic moments, a tease of what’s to come, and much more.

Photo: JPI

Valentin’s world has imploded at the moment.  When did you initially find out that he was going to turn out to not be a true Cassadine heir?

JAMES:  Well, there were some clues dropped by Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) back when we did the gallery auction where Helena’s portrait went up in flames.  Frank looked at me and goes, “Hey, Jack Nicholson it up.  Have some fun!  You’re not going to be feeling pretty good for a while.”  (Laughs)  I’m like, “Oh … what are the plans?”  He pulled me aside and goes, “Yeah, you’re going to lose Nina, but you’re going to try to take over ELQ.  That’s when I started to go, “Wait a minute!  That sounds to me like Valentin’s losing his money.”  (Laughs)  With the character of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) coming back; it’s pretty great.  I think the writing was on the wall there.  I put it out on twitter the other day.  I said, “Look what they’ve done to my boy.”  Somebody chimed in, “They gave him a storyline!” (Laughs)

Who doesn’t love to see you, James Patrick Stuart, play tortured soul?  They audience loves to see you get the opportunity to go to those depths in your performances.

JAMES:  It’s been really interesting for me.  I’ve had a lifetime of playing bad guys because the line was always shorter. (Laughs)  Everybody wants to be Tom Cruise, but the Alan Rickman’s of it all, to me, were what was so interesting.  Early on, you play one dimensional kind of twisting of the mustache, tying a woman to the train tracks.  After a while, you start to watch the truly great actors.  They start to take you on a ride.  If you’re paying attention, you start to feel what it would be like to be that damaged, and that’s why you do it.  Then you start to see the vulnerability. To me, I thought, “This is a great time in my life because I’m ready to do that.” A lot of people say, “I don’t understand.  I feel like that makes no sense. because why would I root for a person who behaves like this?” and that to me, I feel is the greatest compliment of all.

So much happened recently to Valentin in one fell swoop; he overhears Nina telling Ava (Maura West) she kissed Jax, then he envisions shooting Jax and then he is drinking himself into oblivion and he gets a “visit” from Helena!  But … the scenes between Valentin and Helena really summed up the bitter truth for him, wouldn’t you say?

JAMES:  Yes.  In the “Helena” scenes, it all basically is revealed.  It all comes down in a moment where he “sees” her.  I think he realizes with the DNA test; he’s not the person he thought he was, but he certainly had no idea that he had her blood in his veins.  The truly tragic moment of the evening is when it dawns on him that he has a daughter with Helena’s blood in her veins.  Now, he would kill her a thousand times over in that moment.  He can’t do it.  He’s fighting phantoms.  That’s the bottom below the bottom, and things got worse than he ever thought they would get.

Does Valentin have any idea then, who his biological father could be?

JAMES:  I don’t think so.  I don’t believe so.  I know I don’t.  I think once he realizes that Helena is in fact the mother, I think he’d rather just go into oblivion.  I think at that point, he’s out of answers.  Enter Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) …which is wonderful because I think the world of Nancy, and she saves the day.   Alexis basically talks him out of hurting himself, telling him to count his blessings that he is not a Cassadine, etc, which was a really sweet moment.

I assume, when you have this kind of material to play, it must be exhausting, but exhilarating at the same time?

JAMES:  I think that’s exactly right.  As an actor, I think you want to do this stuff.  Maura West and I compare notes all the time.  I think it can be kind of emotionally draining.  You do feel it, and I felt it when I had spent a lot of time with Nina and Valentin, and when the actresses changed, and we brought Cynthia Watros in.  I worked twice as hard to make sure that Cynthia’s landing was as easy as possible, and I really grew attached to the Nina and Valentin connection.  So, when Jax steps in, Cynthia’s love life means nothing to me, I don’t care about that, but Nina’s love life means a lot to me!  And it bums me out, and I don’t know that I’ll actually be watching any future love scenes between them as much as I love them both!  I have a deep attachment to the Valentin connection to Nina.  So, the lines get burred because we just play these characters so long.

What was it like sharing those tough scenes with Constance? No one can play icy, evil villainess like her … and yet in real life, she is such a gracious and kind-hearted woman.

JAMES:  In real life, Constance is such a sweetheart, and she’s so grateful to be there.  She was so ready to work, and rehearse, and play, and find the stuff, and she was great.  I’d been in scenes with her before.  Last time, we didn’t really talk to each other.  I was with the hump.  I was being Valentin pre-surgery.  It was some sort of moment in a graveyard, but this time we actually got to interact with each other.

You look at Valentin, and he’s not had the greatest life.  Do you bring his entire back-story into your performance; such as when he was deformed with the hump and how he had to literally reconstruct his life both in the physical and in emotional ways for many years?

JAMES:  Absolutely.  It’s the brokenness that he’s making choices from.  He was never truly and authentic person to begin with which is why his love fell apart.  He’s always been faking.  He’s always been putting on a show.  That’s not sustainable in matters of the heart.  It was unbelievably easy for Jax to swoop in, because it was inevitable that things were going to fall apart.  Of course, that anger and that brokenness were what lead him to want to kill Jax.  There’s no question.  He was prepared to do that.  If you look in the eyes in the fantasy sequence in the shooting, he just wanted to watch him die.  He wanted to watch the light go out in Jax’s eyes.  He was so furious … and even more tragic is … that was all he could think of, and somehow, he realized in that moment that wouldn’t work, because he’d lose his daughter.

Anna and Finn (Michael Easton) just kind of busted up.  Do you think Anna and Valentin will hookup? There is a connection and a history between the two of them whenever they seem to be in proximity of one another.

JAMES:  Personally, I’m waiting for that.  I hope so!  There is a finesse and elegance to that woman, and not only that, there is an effortless to the connection between Valentin and Anna, if one can say that about one’s own coupling.  I love to look at it!  I think we go together like a wink and a smile.  I just find that chemistry really great.  I think that’s mostly Finola, though.  She can probably have chemistry with most anything.

Valentin was going to leave Port Charles with Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez), after Nikolas revealed all and the fallout began.  Interestingly enough, it was Anna who came to Valentin’s side and tried to talk him down from fleeing with his daughter and showed such compassion for him!

JAMES:  Wasn’t that great?  She was the one who got him.  She was the one who was able to calm the beast.  There was no one else he would have listened to.  In the moment in the police station, after Charlotte had been kidnapped, and there is that moment where Anna has that bruise, I thought it was such a tender moment.  I just said, “If I kiss my finger and touch your wound?” and she’s like, “Do it.”  It was just this moment where we had been bitter rivals and enemies for so long, but he just adores her so much it’s undeniable that he sees her wounded and wants to make it better.  It’s floating out there waiting to be done.  I know that everybody knows it.  It’s just a matter of what the right away to go about in the writing would be.

Photo: JPI

So, you’ve worked opposite two acting dynamos in the role of Nina – Michelle Stafford and now, Cynthia Watros.  Was the transition difficult for you when Cynthia came to GH?

JAMES:  It wasn’t.  It was scary because Michelle Stafford wasn’t just one in a million, I mean, she is one of a kind.  The last thing in the world that I would ever want to consider doing myself was recast that actress.  So, my deal was (and I’ve said this to Cynthia) I said, “I have no control over this.  All I can do is make the landing as easy as possible for Cynthia.”  We did a lot of photoshoots together, and I had flowers waiting for her, and I did everything possible to make sure that she knew that she had a friend and that she had somebody that was going to make it as easy as possible.  It was rough because a lot of the trolls on social media were just awful to her… just brutal, and she goes, “I have thick skin.  I can take it,” and then a week later, she goes, “I’ve closed all my social media accounts!”  (Laughs)  It’s been fun to watch those guys turn around and go, “You have a really special person.”  That wedding stuff was just incredible!  She came so prepared and she knocked it out of the park.  Cynthia has been wonderful.  I love them both.  I love her the reddest, and I love Michelle the bluest, and together I love them the purplest.  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

It’s interesting that all the women in his life such as Anna and Nina, all have a soft-spot for Valentin; even though they don’t necessarily want to be with him.  These ladies are just drawn to this dysfunctional guy.

JAMES:  Don’t you think?  Is it that you want to help him, you want to fix him, you see the potential, you want to help him despite himself?  I think that’s what it is.

Courtesy/ABC

Do you think Valentin’s still going to try to win Nina back, or is that done? 

JAMES:  I don’t know.  I do know that the Valentin I know will never shake Nina, and when he loves, he loves forever.  He can be simultaneously in love with Anna whenever she’s near.  I don’t believe he ever truly got over Nina hearing his story and his brokenness and still loving him twice as hard.  Years ago, there was a moment where he said to her the stuff that he’s never said, and Michelle beautifully kissed my tears away and said, “You’re beautiful” to me.   I think in that moment his fate was sealed.  I think he knew that this was his woman forever.  So, I just don’t think that that goes away.  I think he will always carry a torch for Nina, for sure.

Do you see Valentin becoming darker and darker now that he had found out he is Helena’s offspring?

JAMES:  Well, yes and no.  I remember watching these scenes and we’ve done a lot of this stuff, and you know how easy it is to sort of go, “Let’s go dark, let’s go dark, let’s go more dark,” and after a while, I go, “You know, maybe he does learn something.  Maybe there’s hope for this guy after all.”  Of course, more bad stuff will happen to him, and he will do more bad stuff, because that’s just who he is.  A leopard can’t change his spots, and those are his survival instincts, but there are some new colors, and it’s all a direct result of all of just these horrible things that have happened to him… mostly learning that he is part Helena and he can’t undo that.

Photo: JPI

We saw that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) called and then goes to see Valentin, because she wants to sell her shares of ELQ.  So, obviously he has the potential to become really rich here which is what would give him his power back.  How do you think that will go over with the rest of the Quartermaines? (Laughs)

JAMES:  (Laughs) A lot of the Quartermaine actors have been asking me that in the hallways of General Hospital!  Isn’t that interesting how he’ll just sort of switch families? (Laughs)

Of all the people, just as Valentin’s life is in the gutter and he is at his lowest, who should show up with a sort of lifeline, Nelle! How will he go about attempting to gain control of ELQ?

JAMES:  Valentin knows he has to get the majority shares to gain a control of the company, and he has to do it fast before people see that he’s doing it.  So, that’s where Michael E. Knight (Martin Gray) has been.  He’s gallivanting the states rapidly accumulating shares.  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

It’s been so fun seeing you and Michael Knight on-screen and on a daytime soap together again, as so many remember you as Tad Martin and Will Cortlandt on All My Children.  How has it been getting the chance to work with Michael?

JAMES:  My God, are you kidding me?  He taught me!  He’s the guy who taught me.  I didn’t know how to do this.  Nobody instinctively knows… this is a very unique art form.  It’s more Jazz than anything else, and he showed me how to do it!  Walt Willey (Ex-Jack, AMC) showed me how to do my hair, and Michael Knight taught me how to break down a script!  And, what’s so funny is he is still doing it.  In a scene on GH, when he threw in that line, “From now on, you pay in advance,” I just about fell on the floor!  I thought, “There he is!  That’s the Michael I’ve always known and loved.”

Photo: JPI

Who would have thought that you guys would get to share scenes like that again on soaps?  You just never know in this life who may be wind up back in your orbit.

JAMES:  It’s incredible.  That’s what we say all of the time… “Who would have thought?”  You could never plan something like this and that we’d still be doing it at this point.

Now with Lulu (Emme Rylan) learning that Valentin is not a Cassadine, and Nina apparently moving on to a relationship with Jax, what do you think it will mean for their relationship in raising their daughter, Charlotte?

JAMES:  I think in the short-term, Valentin’s shelved any ideas of getting her out of Charlotte’s life.  He’s sort of putting out the fires in his own personal life.  Charlotte needs a mother in her life, and he’s quite willing to share custody as they always have been.  She seems to be looking at this as an opportunity to paint him as an unfit father, and she wants full-time custody.  So, we’re back to that again.  It looks to me like Lulu is kicking Valentin while he’s down.

It was so nice to see you, and some of your GH co-stars such as: Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny) show up for Y&R’s Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) 40th anniversary on set celebration at CBS.  It was quite the event; speakers galore, and so many from our industry and beyond in attendance.

JAMES:  It was pretty profound.  Eric has always been kind to me.  I only worked with him on one movie, a western, called The Man Who Came Back, and that was probably 12 years ago.  He has been so complimentary of me in interviews and in his book.  So, if he does that with me, I can only imagine how many dear, dear friendships he has.  So, the fact that everybody showed up like that from the president of CBS Entertainment to local councilmen, and that they were willing to do be there for 2 hours was really proof of how much they love him.  Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R), who I don’t even think was working that day, came in for it and spoke at the event. There was so much respect shown for Eric and what he has meant to this medium.

Photo: JPI

Your album The Apple Tree was so well-received, and everyone always loves seeing you get the opportunity to sing on General Hospital as well.  Will you continue to put out more music in 2020?

JAMES:  Yeah, that’s the plan.  I have another one that I’m working on.  I have a bunch of songs.  I’m in no rush to get it out.  Unfortunately, I lost Glen Roven, who wrote the cello part for Book of Love, passed away right after the Nurses’ Ball where I played Book of Love, which is really heartbreaking, and then, Michael Sherwood, who helped me with a number of songs on the record passed away right after The Apple Tree came out.  So, I’m a little gun-shy.  But, I’m planning on having something out by December for Christmas.

In closing, what would you say the fans should look forward to in the weeks ahead from Valentin?

JAMES: Look forward to that moment where Valentin is so low that there’s nowhere to go but up!  The comeback is going to be one for the books.

So, what do you think of how Valentin’s life hit rock bottom?  Do you think he will ever win Nina back? Do you think he will takeover ELQ? Share your thoughts on James’ recent performances and his thoughts contained in this interview via the comment section below.

General Hospital Delivers Super-Sized Promo: The Truth About Wiley To Be Revealed

This week, General Hospital is going full-tilt set to deliver the moment that fans of the show have been waiting for since back in September 2018, when on one fateful night  …

(Cliff Notes version here) Brad and Lucas’s adopted child dies, Nelle gives birth in the woods with an assist from Liesl. Brad and Nelle comes face to face on the road; the two switch babies and keep the long-held secret that Brad and Lucas are actually raising Nelle and Michael’s bio-son. Meanwhile, Willow thinks she is Wiley’s birth mother, having no idea, that her baby died with Brad.

Julian has been in on the secret, and when Brad finally revealed to Lucas the truth about Wiley, it caused their car to crash (Remember: Kendra who in the other car, who was trying to kill Alexis) which has left Lucas with only fragmented memories of that night.

Realizing everything is getting too close for comfort for the truth to come out; Brad accepts a job in Portland and is moving with Lucas and Wiley, while Nelle is selling her shares of ELQ to Valentin to get out of dodge too, so she can follow them, we think.

But in one of the best promo’s we have ever seen for a daytime drama series, as you see below; will Lucas remember and reveal the truth to Michael?
