Looks like an upcoming car crash will change the life of a major character involved in on the upcoming Monday, May 9th episode of General Hospital!

The fist clues of who it is comes in the form of the new promo for the Daytime Emmy Award-winning drama series. This bit of intel comes directly from GH’s ABC executive Nathan Varni, who teases on his facebook page:  “New promo for General Hospital is up for this week! And just a heads up, spread the word and make sure you watch or set your dvr’s for Monday May 9th’s game changing episode of General Hospital. It is definitely must see as everything will change forever for one major character. Don’t miss a very special episode of ABC’s General Hospital 5/9/16″

What viewers see in the promo is imprisoned Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) being transferred to a another facility with Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) in the backseat of a car, and Dante Falconeri  (Dominc Zamprogna) in the front seat and someone else driving.  Meanwhile, there looks to be another vehicle that is coming straight at them.

Watch the General Hospital game-changer after the jump!  Then let us know  … do you think Carlos, Nathan, Dante or someone else will meet their demise …  or perhaps be in peril with alife-changingmedical condition?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

LOL ..
I won’t hold my breath..
GH has become more than lame ..
No matter how much hype is spewed about a great exciting whatever it falls flat, every time.

The storyline with Anna trying to get justice for Duke is getting so old, I can’t stand to watch it anymore. I DVR and when that comes on I fast forward, they are dragging that out and I hate what the writers are doing to Franco, they made him nice and now they are making him dark again.

I am so not looking forward to Franco “spiral” it’s funny to root for an actor… who’s so good at layering his artistic impression he does comedic so well… with his facial expressions alone… LOL… OK he’s part Todd forever and batty Franco dang it! when RH first premiered on GH… as Todd with Connie… @Crimson… it roared… and I’m so glad the show is moving away from caustic and “over” with Nina once again… GH is showcasing and featuring “Jason” at the expense of Roger Howarth steer away from this… and do not let his character… ( who ,… Read more »

My guess is that Carlos will let escape and/or be rescued. I’m sorry, I know Carlos shot Duke, but that loathsome Julian is even more guilty and now also of Hale Garrett’s murder (unless they’re deliberately misleading us). Either way, Alexis needs to start putting what’s left of her conscience ahead of her heart…and her libido!

Right and don’t forget, Julian ordered the hit on Duke.
Alexis has always known this to be true and she married the slimy bastard anyway.

@Harry….That’s because Alexis has “mobster groupie-itis” If it’s not one thug, then it’s another….they seem to be the only type of guy that gets her juices flowing. (And they flow like the Amazon!)

We have holster sniffers, groupies and sports obsessed women [See Kardashians for any of the listed!] and then there is Alexis. It amazes me that Kristina is worried what Alexis or Sonny will think because she MIGHT be a lesbian. Really? Hey Krissy, loving another girl is NOTHING compared to what mommy and daddy did, done and do!

I so detest being redundant, but seems we all are since our opinions of characters don’t seem to change…but Alexis knowing what Julian did is no different than Sam or Elizabeth knowing what Jason did, Hayden/Rachel and Elizabeth knowing what Nicolas did or Rick did, Olivia knowing knowing what Johnny and Sonny did, Carly knowing what Sonny did, Diane knowing what Max did…Robin knowing what Jason and Sonny did…and in the words of Yul Brynner, excetera, excetera.

The Waltons have left the building…

Ain’t gonna happen, Soaphound! Just look at Exhibit A on today’s episode….as usual, Alexis took the low road and opted for a roll in the hay rather than face the truth about her duplicitous, devious dude. Talk about making the same mistakes over…and over….and over again!!!!! She’ll never change as long as that libido of hers reigns supreme!

I think it was way more than a “roll in the hay” and what happened with Alexis today. I hope she’s finally waking up. The range of emotions on her face was amazing from start to finish as she finally started to face the reality of Julian. Not saying it was pretty, but a final crash of her emotions…trying to blank out what she has suspected down deep since Julian asked her to help Carlos…her mind finally starting to put two and two together when she looked at her briefcase and Julian’s access to it…then asking him to tell her… Read more »

It’s hard to tell just from the short promo. Carlos isn’t really that major (he’s not in the opening credits), so that leads to believe it will be Dante or Nathan. Since Nathan has the whole “who is Claudette” story going and Dante’s “reunion” story with Lulu doesn’t seem to be picking up any speed, I lean more toward it being him. ~ Oh, who knows? There are so many avenues to go down. I’ll just have to watch and see…Which, I’m happy to do.

Rodd

OH, I do think that if Carlos was the one effected in the accident, it may give the writers a chance to keep JVP on the canvass as a reformed Carlos. LOL!

Dante needs to die and the beautiful and talented but uneeded Olivia needs to leave town along LuLu until she’s recasted. Laura has connections all over the canvas including her son, she doesn’t need Lulu tbh

I would rather have Carlo’s than either Nathan or Dante- they both bore me to stone.
The whoopie moment might be a thrill but as always what about after the after the moment, that is when it goes blah..
It’s going to need a really hard hitting plot line to not fail .

I hope it’s not Sabrina… returning “home” to Port Charles… as the newly married wife of Carlos… bringing their son home could it be Sabrina… i’ll be crushed if it is… after all this would be like the same thing that happened to Sage (@Y&R)… she crashed before she could tell Nick about their son now it’s Sabrina … returning to Port Charles with their son… I Loved it … when Carlos told Michael (ugh! he’s so dire) LOL when Carlos told Michael he’s married to Sabrina it just bites ! lame! as if Sonny is cohercing Jason….

This promo just highlights how out of touch ABC/GH are with viewers.
GH just did a van accident on the way to prison. That time it was Sonny/Ava/Julian.
I’m so fed up with all the criminals who populate GH.They never pay & the show tries and romanticize them. They’re murderers: Sonny, Jason,Julian,Carlos,Ava,Paul,etc…
GH needs to scrap all these thugs & get back to telling classic soap w/o guns & violence.
In 2016 with rampant gun violence in America it’s really in bad taste.

My guess is Sonny ordered someone to take out Carlos but told them to make it look like an accident and Dante will be the character affected — which means Sonny will have to live with the guilt of what ever happens to Dante– I don’t think they will kill Dante, but a life threatening injury seems the more likely scenario– they could go the route Days did in Jan and have Dante needing a transplant of some sort and Carlos is brain dead and his organ is harvested to save Dante, who after the transplant starts acting like Carlos–… Read more »

Based on hints I have heard elsewhere, I believe they are killing off Dante.

I have been so bored with GH lately that I will likely skip it. I have also been bored with Days. I have been loving B&B and Y&R, which is the exact opposite of where I was with my soaps last year at this time. (sigh)

Hi Shay, I totally agree, no matter what books he read on marriage his little “Dante” was a bad boy and Lulu should have moved on! Kill Dante and hopefully Michael and Morgan will be crossing the street the same time!

(And speaking of the “Mikester,” what’s the first thing he does after being handed back ELQ and its CEO position on a silver platter? Immediately go to work like any sane person? Nope.

Sonny was telling Jason… you wouldn’t even question your actions… or motivations… etc… I will give prop to Jason… when he responds to Sonny… I have too much to lose.

give some warmth and nurturing to Nina and her aunt

When Sonny and Carly had a little chat regarding JASON who is, but isn’t
last week….the disconnect was so evident between these characters who
were once so close…needs to be addressed and put to rest. Otherwise why
bring it up. Perfect segway…A Major car collision to restore Jason’s memories.
Okay not the most inventive way to go about it, since every time HE’S been in a
CAR it hasn’t gone so well for him. But alas for the fans, we’ll finally be able to
put this long winded storyline in our rear view.

I would like to see Julian with Alexis why do they always have to make him the bad guy let his past be his past. I hope Nathan survives but it doesn’t look good for him it seems like they are trying to replace him with Griffin. Duke wasn’t such a good person himself he had a hit on Jordan does anyone remember that.

Carlos is already dead, but I did hear that Lucas is going to be injured somehow, and Carly and Bobbi will have to make a “difficult decision.” Granted, this is from CDL, so I take it with a grain of salt. If they have Sonny and Carly split FOR ANY REASON I’M DONE WITH GH! Sonny and Carly are why I got into the show, why I keep watching the show, and I’ll keep watching as long as they’re together. I’ll come back when they reconcile again, because they always do. I know they have Avery’s custody issues coming up… Read more »

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

Courtesy/ABC

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
