On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, look for quite the meaty scene between female titans, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati)!

In this video preview, Obrecht is confronting Anna as to the whereabouts of Cesar Fasion (Anders Hove) and wants Anna to admit she killed him!  While Anna never does say what happened to the sociopath, she questions Obrecht’s motives  for coming to see her, which seem to be using her missing son, Nathan (Ryan Paevey) to get answers about Faison!

Anna admits she has grown very fond of Nathan, and lays into Obrecht for handing her son over to her sister Madeline (Donna Mills) so she could go be with Faison!

Watch the clip after the jump!  Let us know what you thought of seeing the showdown as played by Finola Hughes and Kathleen Gati?  And, the bigger questions … where is Faison?  Will it prove true that Nathan is the love-child of Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis) and Liesl?

When was the last time we saw Dr.O and Anna together. I can’t remember. Was it when Robin left? That was six months ago. Was that when Dr.O accused Anna of killing Faison? Has she waited six months to confront her again? Was that last conversation the same one when Dr.O suggested that she knew the reason Robin left and there was more to it than Anna knew? So Anna never followed up on that and Dr.O has waited all this time to try and get answers about Faison? This is a meaty scene. But that seems to be what… Read more »

Scooby Doobey Doo…GH needs you…come solve a case and help poor Anna…Scooby will fill right at home-like any cartoon character-since the show feels like its written by Hanna Barbera…just joking folks?…lol

GH50: I absolutely agree with you. Storylines are constantly “lost” because of the on-slaught of new, recurring, and useless characters. I forget about many of the storylines (for example, Carlos, Ava, Sabrina-the accident “cover-up,” etc) because there is no continuity. It’s very sad to see. The show does not appear to have much balance.

By now some probably forgot Ric Lansing was there…i know the writer has…lol…if the show would drop about 8 to ten characters and have more continuity it would be so much better and maybe climb even more in the ratings!!!

I so agree with this. It’s like rather than storylines, we have a constant parade of smoke and mirrors, blasts from the past. Tired of Obrech’s madman ex-boyfriend running around loose tinkering with lives in a health care facility. And then there’s pulling things out of the recycling bin – like the Carly and Sonny liaison… Sonny’s character burned out long ago. They need to bring some stabiity and realism to the storylines. Bring in Erika Slezak and some of the Buchanans from OLTL. The writers have basically shredded the Quartermains out of the picture. Bring in a new cornerstone… Read more »

Awesome!!
That is why GH is the true #1 soap!!
With great actors ; Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) facing-off on screen together their talent is explosive..
They are equal in giving powerful performances..

Same with Mura West/Ava facing-off with Michelle Stafford/Nina..
They are explosive, and even-up in giving powerful performances..

((and some believe Sharon and Cassi Y&R are giving great performance, in comparison to the above 4, they are weak/mediocre …. (cassi better than Sharon)

Gotta give credit where credit is due..
General Hospital=powerhouse !!…. GH is thee #1 soap!!! 🙂

I agree it is a meaty scene and i look forward to it…and there is a problem with continuity…this paticular scene should have been shown months ago…Dr.O wouldve never waited this long to confront Anna over her beloved Faison…maybe it has something to do with the availability of actors and how many scenes the can do( a show with a bloated cast like this would cost a fortune to produce if all were featured everyday…they need to drop several and focus more on continuity like the other shows do)…in spite of its flaws which i dont see corrected anytime soon,… Read more »

Exactly, jimh! It’s long past time for these two dynamic divas to once again lock horns…let battle commence!!!! Despite all the delirious declarations of devotion coming from fans of last week’s Phyllina/Ava verbal mash-up, this is the pairing for which I have been waiting….and…waiting….and waiting. Of course, Dr. O. with anybody is quite delicious and satisfying….ever since the Nurses’ Ball, her all-too-brief appearances have been doled out far too judiciously for my taste! Back to the frontburner for Mutter!!!!!!

Yes…more Mutter for me too…took forever for this Anna/Dr.Mutter showdown and hopefully it was worth the wait…Nina/Ava scenes was delicious drama but i’ve been starving so long for another juicy round between Anna/Mutter that i litterally lost ten pounds!!!…lol

Well, I don’t know about you, jimh, but yesterday’s episode was the first time in an absolute age that I actually felt as if I were watching the real GH. We had Spencers, Cassadines, Scorpios and Westbournes, who despite being the “new family” have ties that reach back to the show’s best days. I actually watched the entire program, beginning to end, with interest!!! Not only were the most fascinating characters and storylines featured, but it was more who we didn’t see that made the episode so enjoyable….no SAPPY, Felix, Sonny, Carly, Kiki, Jordan, TJ, Alexis, Molly, Julian, Ava, Grossalie,… Read more »

Same here…in my reply to CeeCee yesterday i mentioned it was a better show…its usually better with me favorite Dr. Mutter…hopefully, nuJason’s return will help bring the Quartimaines more airtime…and more Monica!!! But i wont hold my breath…those others you mention will unfortunately show up…GH needs a big disaster to trim the cast and get rid of the lot of them and hopefully in one episode…lol

Todays episode…was nearly as good as Mondays…Wed. not looking too good with a few boring characters in the preview but i’ll wait and see…my interest in the show has increased for the better(even with some flaws) since by REALLY BAD day from two weeks ago…

And you just knew it was too good to last, right jimh? Tuesday wasn’t as good as Monday, and Wednesday? Forget about it! Back to many of those boring, unnecessary filler castmates that have no place on the canvas! As for today, I see by the preview that we are again being forcefed “LaNina,” as if it would be too much to ask for a week’s relief without that show-eating albatross on wheels, and oh yes, Snippy is there as well, acting all “Mata Hari” with her juvenile revenge-capade. Oh spare me…..

I love the pace 🙂 the writing is awesome suspenseful and giving the actors great moments to perform.. GH is no longer a soap from the 80’s (thanky gawd!) The world has changed dramatically since the 80’s (another thanky gawd for the loss of the big head hairdos and polyesters) Since the ”old days” ya know the good ol’ days.. media has changed tremendously, so should the soaps.. GH is the ONLY soap going into 21st century production .. If the soaps don’t or can’t keep up with the 21st century they will die from 80’s syndrome… The now gen… Read more »

Its not fast when you have to wait for a nearly forgotten story to continue weeks to months later…yeah, thank God its not the 80s when soaps were still the rage with 3 times more soaps to choose from, highy rated with character driven stories with continuity and made sense…there is a reason they were called the Good Old Days…because they were GOOD…lol…actually soaps arent in the 21st…much of it has step backwards with far less location shootings and big production scenes…there was a lot more of those moments back then compared to today…soaps also didnt need fillers like they… Read more »

Jake…i agree…i woundnt want the Guzza years…i barely watched then…the current regime is somewhat better…however, as a longtime viewer of soaps ive seen even better and know GH could do better than it is doing now…if Y&R can attract over 4 million viewers why cant GH do the same…its the writing…i dont have great writing skills myself so its easy for me to tell when these shows writing isnt doing well…have you ever noticed when GH has some good moments the ratings rise then decrease when certain characters and their part of the story is featured…if the show would drop… Read more »

But complaining is half the fun of watching a soap. Why do sports fans yell at their television when their team fumbles a play? Why do they call into sports radio telling the host what they would do if they were the coach or management? Because it is fun and they are passionate about their team– and likewise for a soap fan with their soap— Yeah, I get there is difference between good nature complaining and constantly bitching, but for the most part die hard soap fans have been complaining about their soaps since the beginning, just now we can… Read more »

first and foremost, Anna needs to be on like 3 to 4 times a week, and not 1 time a week for several weeks, this is horrible that non contract players like DR.O gets more airtime. Second, they need her to solve some cases, and become more badass otherwise just give Mac back the commissioner job, at least we became use to him not solving any crimes, but to have Anna in the same boat is insulting. wheres the freaking balance. Third, it would be nice if Anna actually played a bigger role in raising Emma, after all that is… Read more »

Completely agree with everything you wrote. Anna should be the central character on GH. She has not had a s/l this year and it is ridiculous that she has not solve a case especially when it involves Emma (car accident). Additionally, where is her concern for Robin her one great love in life. That alone is an abomination. Meanwhile we have Nina who has been on the show for merely 3 mos and practically involved in every storyline. Michelle S. was terrific on YR as Phyllis. I find Nina to be too cartoonish and have no care for her. I… Read more »

This is exactly right. Watch that clip. Watch Anna Devane.Watch how commanding Finola Hughes is. Watch her timing, he range of emotion, her acting choices. Not OTT. Not chewing the scenery. Not coming up with little ticks and affectations. And it is more than Finola as an actress. It is about the character as well. A character that she has developed over the years with great acting but has also been developed through great writing, except for now when she is thrown by the wayside. How much better would GH be, if Anna Devane was taking down her long time… Read more »

Wow, I love reading the comments that come with these articles! I agree it is a shame we can’t see thee these two actresses every week. I believe it does have more to do with budgets, unfortunately. But anytime these two are in a scene together I dare anyone to look away from the screen! They are awesome!

GH has been better and at times, a lot worse. We as viewers see a couple problems that are talked about, quite often. Too many characters and not enough air time. I dont know who is to blame? Is it the money, the contracts, the writing? Anna is a hell of a character with connections to so many. She isnt on much, she isnt there for Patrick and Emma, never sees Mac, doesnt mention Robert, and who the hell knows where Duke is? Same with Laura. Her love of her life and her kids have or are going through hell… Read more »

Random thoughts… …some fans may be complaining but the ratings continue to be great. As long as ratings are solid, writers will not change. … I’ll take a little bit of Bobbie, Duke, etc over none at all. … no soap writer gets to write whatever he wants for whoever he wants. There are contracts, guarantees, etc that are taken into consideration which is why some characters seem to disappear for a while. Frustrating, yes but not necessarily a writer’s choice. … there’s a lot lot LOT more booing on these comment feeds than cheering. How about some of the… Read more »

Pacing & continuity are GH’s biggest problems. I liken it to a child with a new toy….it gets played with constantly for a while and then forgotten, only picked up again ever now & then. I believe a big part of the problem is the cast is just too big. It is almost impossible to play every character and story line with the same amount of air time when you are juggling 30+ of them. I also think that they only have Michelle Stafford for a limited time. It has never been said that she signed a 3 year contract.… Read more »

Maybe Victor will take Nathan fishing and to a ballgame or go camping drinking beer and eating hot dogs for some father/son bonding…lol…kidding aside, im replying here: yes, Anna did have a twin i believe when she was on All My Children…i also thought there was a cousin or a nephew…cant really remember…i only watched AMC briefly when she was there!…I thought GH was a lot better today!!!

I catch up with my soaps late at night when all is quiet. I am so loving GH right now… The suspense of finding out if Nathan truly is Bictor’s bio son is killing me…in a good way, lol.
I like Victor, so I wish TPTB will humanize him somewhat.

Why isn’t Finola Hughes on more often? Where’s Duke?? Too many cast members on this show are pushing out favorites like Anna Devane. SO not looking forward to the Jason Morgan show that will be coming up next either!

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Photo: ABC

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section
