Next week on General Hospital the wait is over, according to this just released new promo from ABC!  And if you are GH fan, it looks like the week of September 30th through October 4th will bring about reveals and revelations to two of the hottest storylines on soaps today!

First, Dante  (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan) confront Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) where it appears that Lulu has figured out that baby Connie is really Spixie’s!

Then, as Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castill0) seem to be getting closer, Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is seen, and she says, “I’m coming baby!  I swear it.”

How will this all unfold?  Are you excited for the truth to come out about baby Connie?  Are you excited to know that Kimberly McCullough will be on-screen next week?

Watch the new General Hospital promo after the jump! Then, let us know what you think will be the fallout when Dante and Lulu learn the truth? And, where is Robin  … and how do you think she will make her way back to Port Charles?

FINALLY!!!!!!!

Robin WILL NOT be reunited with Patrick and Emma the first week.

We weren’t born yesterday. Remember Maria on “All My Children”? Took her 18 months to get back to Edmund and Maddie.

But how did Robin get away…did Scorpio wake up and free her…or is this not the real Robin…is Dr.O near…and what about Dante, Lulu and the baby drama…Maxie and Spinneli finally exposed as Connie/Georgis real parents…seems too good to be true…and what about baby Ben and Britt…theres gotta be some shocking twist and turns…see you next week…lol

And that is why we love soaps– anticipation mixed with a dash of possibility makes everything sweeter. I just hope the reveal isn’t a dream– I hate it when soaps to do that, you think the truth is coming out, by the promo, just to find out the character is only dreaming what would happen if the truth came out— but they don’t show that part until Monday when you’re watching and realize you have been duped.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

So true…everything you said…and its the reason ive been a soap addict for almost 50 years…yet im only 35…yeah, right…lol

I THINK THAT BRITT’S BABY BEN IS REALLY DANTE AND LULU’S BABY. I THINK THAZT IS WHY BRITT ORIGINALLY DIDNT WANT MAXIE TO USE THE OTHER EGG WHEN SHE MISSED CARRIED.

Diane

I agree with Allison! But I think Britt may not know what the lab boss(Brad) has stolen

Angee

I think Britt’s baby is Donte and LuLu’s

I think Ben is Dante and Brit’s baby. I want Spixie to get their baby (georgie) back from shrewlu.

Cindy

My guess is that Robyn will be found by Luke….she’s the one behind the door!

As for Maxi’s baby………..FINALLY!!!! This storyline was getting really frustrating!

As for Britt’s baby….my guess is that she stole Dante’s and Lulu’s embryo…little Ben is Dante’s and Lulu’s!

Those are my predictions…. 🙂

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

There are many possibilities for baby Ben…Dante and Lulu seems to be a fan fevorite but that would give them a happy ending…my other choices are Patrick and Robins, Patrick and Britts, Dante and Britts, or even Nik and Britts…a Britt connection with any of the three men mention could keep Britt in major story involvement for years! Thanks 4 reply Cindy!!!

That is not ever going to happen if Tony Geary has anything to do about it. I for one think their chemistry is gone the age difference really shows now. Go back and check on you tube old footage of them compared to now it is gone. I do not think they really want to write for Genie she never got the strong story she wanted it was just more of the same.

Nuclear bombs will detonate on General Hospital and in lieu of radiation the fallout will bring turmoil and tugs of war the likes of which may have never before been seen in Port Charles! Tremulous triangles (Robin, Patrick, Sabrina) and quaking quandrangles (Dante & Lulu vs. Maxie & Spinelli, with baby “Connie” in the middle) will definitely ensue! Every thread of sanity may unravel for some of GH’s most beloved citizens!

Stephen Parker
Stephen Parker

Quaking QUADrangles….I am so excited I mistyped…and speaking of quadrangles, what about Robin, Patrick, Sabrina and her ex-beau mobster boyfriend??? And let’s not forget the residual repercussions for people such as Britt & Ellie, who knew some of the truths that will be disclosed.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

And baby Bens true identity?

Jared

How fun! Thank you, GH & RC/FV! I hope we get to see more Dr. O! Also, wouldn’t it be interesting if Britt is Duke and Anna’s daughter, making her Robin’s half sister? Maybe throw a pregnant Sabrina in the mix, and we’ll have quite the joyride! As for baby Connie, I’m hopeful she is returned to Maxie and Spinelli soon. Maybe Britt’s baby is Lulu and Dante’s? Loving the show right now, except for the Franco debacle and not digging the new Lulu, thought Ms. Rylan is a talented lovely, just different from how I envision the role, which is Luke’s young gritty female counterpart. More Laura please!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

You think like me…i once mentioned some time ago a possible ‘what if’ Britt was really Annas daughter and she actually carried her own half sisters baby Ben(with Patrick the father) but Robins return seems too good to be true…what if she is some lookalike sent by the evil Dr.O? Hope Dr.O is hiding in Windmere? What if Dr.O is disguised as Robin like when Faison was disguised as Duke? Stranger things have happened on soaps…lol

Cynthia
Cynthia

Wow never thought about Brit being Anna’s daughter. Would be interesting. I doubt it, but you never know. Brit’s baby may be Dante and Lulu’s, I just can’t see Brit wanting to give birth to someone else’s child. I think she’d want the baby to be hers biologically. Who knows when the truth about her baby will come out, but I sure don’t think Brad is the father.

Kara
Kara

I agree with you. My guess is Brit took D & L’s eggs. Or D’s sperm so it would be her baby with Dante. And I think that’s what Brad has been trying to hint at. I must say part of me is sad to see Robin come back. It seems to be her MO. Stay for a bit and leave to do something that does or doesn’t pan out. Then she comes back again. And while Patrick needs someone a love triangle is going to get boring real quick. So why bring her back?? Who missed her? And oh boy there is going to be tons of crying on GH by a lot of characters.

I’m excited for the baby truth to finally come out. Maxie finally gets her baby and D & L can stop acting like asses. I’m so over them. Boring, boring D & L are a waste of screen time. Moving onn

Angee

I with you not excited about Robin come back…lets move on the P & S

I do not see the big deal that Robin/Kimberly McCullough is returning..
Kimberly McCullough walked out of GH and now she is returning and we’re suppose to worship her lol no way..
She is a quitter .. … she walked the hell right out on her fans lol boooo!
oh well, anyways she is not all that great.. She is a long time cast member but ehh ..

I am much more interest in Spin being a real daddy/story .

Wendy
Wendy

Seriously? That woman has been acting the part of Robin most of her life. I think she is MORE than entitled to do whatever she wants with her life without being accused of “walking out” on her fans.

I find this entire line of reasoning ridiculous. I was not aware that playing a soap character requires indentured servitude. I’m thrilled that Kimberly has chosen to resume the role of Robin, for however long she chooses to play her.

Wow. Just… Wow.

Carm
Carm

Wow just wow ! Thank you Wendy!! So glad a wonderful dedicated actress is coming back to our screens to keep us awake from the boredom that we ve been subjected to with some of these “fairytales”

rebecca1
rebecca1

I agree…not necessarily for the same reasons but I didn’t really miss the character. I certainly don’t tune in or out for Kimber McCullough.

And now that Carlos is in the picture, I would rather have seen Patrick’s realization for how much he actually loves Sabrina…have Sabrina’s personality developed more so that we can see WHY he loves her (they really haven’t given “Sabrina” any personality beyond loyal and loving…). But agian, I ‘d like her to get some layers…maybe an evolution that comes about because of her past…and then the triangle between Carlos, Sabrina and Patrick. Obviously that would be intense since Carlos is in the mob…I just don’t see how Robin fits into all this…or the point of bringing Carlos in if Sabrina and Patrick are done.

rebecca1
rebecca1

By the way, I’m agreeing with su0000, not Wendy (though I do agree acting is a job and of course just like any job people can quit when and if they choose.)

Patrick
Patrick

I can’t believe the physical resemblance…. these two actors have.

when you look at Carlos… especially when he was in the drs. office…. shirt off… he was the spitting image of “puerto rican’ Patrick…

correct me if i’m wrong… ie: his and Sabrina’ nationality

but.. it’s ingenious of the GH production… to go this route… so as to make it easier to buy

course, if you look again… he also looks like a younger Benjamin Bratt

finally… Patrick has been naturally laughing, kidding, and seems more at ease… now that Carlos has happened on the scene… and it could also be that JT knows what’s down the pipeline…. KM is coming back… and his character is renewed… revitalized… JT is back on track.

Yippee!

I sooo agree…never liked Robin except when she was a little girl..& even then I dunno cuz she spoke like an adult..little kids that speak like adults are really bothersome to me ..kids should be kids..& when she got older too judgemental leaving only understanding for herself…& then she leaves a lot & for me I think soapfans like an actor to commit to the character..jmo..

I’m hoping that the Brit’s baby turns out to be Dante and Lulu’s. She did have access to the fertilized eggs. She could have lied about how many there actually were to begin with. I want them to get the baby they deserve and still get Maxie and Spenilli back together

i am glad that Maxie and Spinelli will get their baby girl back. Hopefully Dante and Lulu get their own baby boy (Ben, Britt’s baby) back too. But honestly, I am not happy at all about Robin’s return. And don’t get me wrong: i loved her while she was on the show and very sad when she left abruptly. The writers had to adjust the story to respond to her request to leave. Because of her leave, many story lines changed in the show… and now she wants to be back again! Perhaps, she wasn’t successful in what she wanted to do and came back to the show. I don’t like it that certain actors consider the show “their safe heaven” when they fail elsewhere. They think they can come and go as they please without thinking of how much they hurt the career of the new actors who replace them, take over the load of their work and then have to leave to allow them to take back the roles again. I am sure Kimberly will want to leave again soon… Just watch..

Wilda

Kimberly did not fail the last year. She was very successful in her internship for directing. This was something that she had to do in order to direct; whether it be in the soap field or in films. You just don’t wake up one day and say I’m going to be a brain surgeon and go to the hospital, she had schooling to complete. Hopefully she will be asked to direct at GH.

Paula

I wonder if she will come back just to die again, since she has AIDS. I hope not!! I used to want her back, but now I like Patrick and Sabrina. Hate her old boyfriend. Hate that Ava would sleep with her son in law. Why would the writers think that is a good story????

rebecca1
rebecca1

I think Ava and Morgan is a GREAT story! The possibilities are endless.

First, he’s of age. There are plenty of younger men/older women…and as for stories, they’ve been a part of literature, prime tiime TV and film dating back to The Graduate with Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft. No big deal…

The web between Morgan who is a Corinthos and Ava who is a Jerome…the divided loyalties…if they expand on this it’s a great story in the making!

Carm
Carm

Omg where are you children getting your info from. ” she has AIDS?” Maybe you need to rewatch real true soap writing at its best! Robin Scorpio doesn’t have Aids! She is HIV postive. Smh

Patrick
Patrick

that’s a little severe….

AIDS? she is HIV positive…

her medicines… were working….

there are some fans out their… who don’t like Robin’ demeanor… this is my opinion on what triggers Robin….

I honestly think …. the way she transformed… is indicative.. of having an illness… that changes your way of thinking…. and she can’t not help but… be the best person she can be…. and wary of the onset of her meds… not working

in some cases…. some patients… immune system… tolerates their meds for so long.. and their body starts rejecting… hence.. the onset of, perhaps… AIDs.

till another regiment comes along… that curtails her downward spiral

hiv – aids is across the board… makes no judgment on who is susceptible

I love that Robin’ character was given a life that is, to this day…. so important

her character has shared with the world… that said persons with hiv… can have a life

and… let it not be said… that this story… is

alleviating… fear
erasing stigma
lessening ignorance
and giving a healthy mind… healthy spirit, to channel good story… to share with others

I love the Drakes’

Cynthia

I hope Dante and Lulu do really find out about the baby and hope this isn’t a trick to make us think they will and then they don’t! Interested to see how this Robin story goes. I doubt if Kimberly is staying for too long and I also doubt that Robin will be home with Patrick and everyone will live happily ever after like fans hope. We will have to see how it goes. If Kimberly is just coming back to leave again, then it will be very unsatisfying. I sure hope Robert comes back as well and gets out of that coma. I wish he’d be in PC and help save Luke.

I am so happy that this baby story will be moving along. It was built on all sorts of plot points and stands to ruin my favorite female friendship between Maxie and Lulu.

FINALLY!!! It has been way to long without Robin. I hope they don’t make us wait to put this family back together, we have waited long enough!!!!! I want my SCRUBS!!!!!!!!!!

Mallory

I can’t wait!!! I love Kimberly and Jason together. I can’t wait to see her back on screen. Patrick is boring without Robin, and I love Patrick alot but to me he seems like he’s walking through this moving on and really truly loves Robin and can’t let her go.

I can’t wait for the moment they set eyes on each other and run to each, I know I will be a bundle of nerves for the next few weeks and I KNOW I will be crying when they do reunite! Hopefully its not too long

su0000

It will not be instant..
It will be months before they are reunited
and they may not be reunited, things will not be the same between them after all this time and Patrick has found another love… It will take time,,

Cathy

It will not be months nor will Patrick have to choose. ROBIN is his soulmate and love of his life, his WIFE AND he only moved on for Emma and even Emma wants her mommy Robin! No way does a forced propped nurse compare to a love of a supercouple SCRUBS with 7 years of history.

Soon as Robin appears Emma will whine and whine and whine!

I am beyond thrilled to watch GH again for Robin and Scrubs Couldn’t watch Pod Patrick with childish propped nurse. That’s is not Patrick who many of us knew from 2005.

Carm

@su0000 the only whining I’ve seen has come from Sabrina fans. Oh well I’m going to enjoy watching Robin Scorpio -Drake reconnect with her daughter. And maybe try to undo some of the damage done to the poor young impressionable child from incompetent glorified babysitters! 🙂

Shay
Shay

Amen to the ladies for their observations: SO right you are!!!!…..This past week was completely unbearable with Patrick and the twit nurse! Their little sofa scene (drinking wine) seemed plain creepy….like an older guy plying an “underage teen” with alcohol so as to take advantage of her….gross! Furthermore, pushing an alternative “backstory” at this late date for “Sappy” with the greasy old gangsta just added insult to injury in this warped, failed plotline…..”Car-LOS!” (Really sick of the over the top pronunciation of his name….how cheesy!) The entire scenario is reminiscent of a tacky, trashy telenovela replete with the overdone acting style of the two principal players. (Although “Car-LOS!” did get one thing correct….he really hit the nail on the head by calling his ex nothing more than a “glorified babysitter with benefits.” Perfect description! Finally someone said it….YES!) I truly hope that “Cartini” finally puts an end to the unmitigated disaster called “Sabrina” by either shipping her back to the PR with the “Operations Manager” (Another huge haha….) or by simply killing her off…the time has come….this character is unworkable!!!! JUST-DO-IT!!!! Lastly, I am so glad that there are others here who also find Emma to be a spoiled brat…cannot agree more…she’s beyond irritating, and it was made much worse in her being coddled by the insipid caretaker she has had over the past year! I suggest the first thing Robin does once she’s back and settled is to give that obnoxious kid a good dose of discipline!!!!

liz
liz

I have to say it too, AMEN!! I love Patrick from the first day on the show, but what they have done to him with that babysitter is wrong. He is trying but when you have someone who does not fit, what can you do. He needs Robin and we need our Scrub family back

Patrick
Patrick

high 5 Cathy!

I stand and shout from the mountain tops… the roof tops…

“Scrubs Lives”

LOL. thank you SuOOOO for bait and switch

triggers and endorphins beware

@Shay… I actually thought it was so out of character… but story driven… that out of the blue… ‘that’ Emma wanted her mommy… and that Sabrina was bowled over… LOL unglued.. when Emma said as much… it was priceless

ie: I definately agree with you, that… some kids need a swift kick in the rear… if nothing else… remind

Kiki – i’ve just had “enuf”… say what one will… Ava is still a parent… and letting Kiki… walk all over… and retarded she is – nevertheless… I’d be nonplussed and dissapointed with my child

it was so hilarious… when kiki and michael, walked in on Ava and Morgan…

kiki – “oh my god, oh my, what is happening?”

Morgan’ retort… “what does it look like… i’m bedding your mother”

LOL

that in itself saved the scene.

yikes… I, dont get Kiki and Michael.. they have no energy…

Carol

I’m so glad that Dante and Lulu will find out the truth. I like the characters, but this is such a sad and frustrating story to me. Maxie clearly doesn’t think out the consequences of her actions. I hope there is a happily ever after for Dante and Lulu if they find out Brit’s baby is theirs. And glad to see Robin come back as her loved ones have been so heartbroken without her. Hope that Robert not far behind.

As far as the baby goes Who cares? they beat this dead horse to death and now the end is near, I don’t care. I don’t like Dante the self righteous cop dirty money taker from the mob. Lying for his father. I will feel for Lulu, but Dante ??? I am looking forward to Robins return. KMC left to do other things. She has been on the show for most of her life and wants to direct. Good for her. GH is a soap to us, to her its a job. I heard she will be returning with her dad. Now that will be NOT Miss GH . Can’t wait to see Robert. Can’t wait to see Anna and Robert go after Faison and Jerry Jacks. NO MORE MOB .I have been a week without the show tooo much Scummy and now another mob? no thanks I’ll pass.

luane raudabaugh
luane raudabaugh

I can’t wait for Maxie and Spinelli to get there baby back! I hope it comes out that psycho Britt used a fertilized egg of Lulu’s and Dante’s and that they will get their own baby too! I know it does’nt seem like this may be the case, but Britt is so off the wall that I think she truely believes this is her child. As for Robin coming back, hmmmmmm, I don’t really know. I like Sabrina a lot and I don’t want to see her hurt. Carlos is no good- he has got to be out of the picture- Sabrina deserves better than him.

Barb Stiles
Barb Stiles

I agree I believe Britts baby is Dante and LuLu’s .. one reason because Britt didnt really want anything to do with it until she was talked into it.. and they have been saying the baby doesnt look like her or whoms he said was the baby daddy.. I hope Britt has a heart and when it comes out that the baby Dante and Lulu have now is Maxies I hope she tells them right away and gives them their real baby!!!!.. I did read somewhere though that Spenelli is going to go off contract and be on again off again and Maxie is going to run away for awhile.. I bet they take the baby and run together!!!.. however I just hope they get their baby back and Dante and LuLu get their baby back and that Britt straightens up!!!..

Fabia
Fabia

I have been saying that Ben is Lulu’s and Dante’s baby since Britt confessed the baby was not Patrick’s . It is the logical conclusion, right? But, with soaps, one never knows. Nonetheless, you are probably right about Maxie leaving for a while. She is pregnant in real life…have you noticed how “blousy” her clothes are?

aimie

I’ve been saying since the revelation that Jerry had a cute that he grabbed Robin to research for a cure. Must mean she’s on to one.

Seriously gotta laugh at some of these comments. Like Kimberly walked out on her fans when from the time she was shown alive, it was revealed she was ALWAYS COMING BACK. It was said in the mags from her and FV as well as JT. Just baiters Said she wouldnt come back even when FV and KMc said she would. it was FV decision when FV thought the time was right not Kimberly’s.. Robin is the GH legacy character not a propped nurse who couldn’t make it on her own. The STORY IS AND ALWAYS was SCRUBS and the nurse was just a place filled propped by a head writer given EVERYTHING of Robin’s life to make her work. WELCOME BACK KIMBERLY YOU WERE MISSED BY MANY! Can’t wait for Patrick to see Robin. No way would real Pateick have to choose between a childish nurse and the love of his life Robin.

su0000
su0000

There will be great drama with the triangle, no doubts..
I do not see Patrick and Robin getting together for months..
It is soap and this threesome story will be played to the umpth..

Also- Kimberly left GH to explore and direct etc..
She had no intentions of returning until she had achieved/done what she set out to do.

Her character was killed off, RC/FV decided to keep her alive in Sweden..
(Kimberly was not coming back..
FV got her back, thank him ..

Fabia

Linda

I think it needs to come out that the baby is Maxi and Spinelli’s. But it also need to come out tat Britt’s baby is Dante and Lulu’s. Because I am sure that is what she did. Nicholas could find that out after all he is Lulu’s brother. And I don’t care a thing about Robin coming back. I would much rather see Sabrina and Patrick work it out. And OMG can we now get rid of Morgan and Ava. Gross and sicking. But I would rather see Kiki eave too and Star come back to Michael. Always something with this show. And move on Sonny before someone take your terriroty.

Re reunion of Luke and Laura:
What’s age go to do with it? It’s chemistry–and good acting–plus good story.
As Genie and Tony have said many times–it’s the writing–without that you got nothing–but the chemistry that is always there. We longtime fans are awaiting the reunion–it’s inevitable. Don’t think the story ends when the couple are obviously together. A very good example–“McMillan and Wife” on tv with Susan Saint James and Rock Hudson–yes ROCK HUDSON. That’s chemistry, good acting, good writing.
PS See also “Rear Window” with Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly and Cary Grant and Grace Kelly (“To Catch a Thief”)–and Cary Grant and almost any other actress years younger–I repeat–it’s the writing and the chemistry plus good acting.
PS 2 I believe that Jonathan Frakes (Genie’s husband) is 9 years older than Genie–a lot of chemistry there, obviously.

jake r

I absolutely LOVE Luke & Laura, and tear up watching their old stuff online, like when Laura came back after being kidnapped by Stavros in the mid-80’s and they reunited at the Mayor’s Mansion. HOWEVER, that being said, I really don’t see the chemistry between them anymore. Their scenes together are sweet, but more melancholy to me than anything. They are co-parents together, and grandparents together, but I don’t think romance is in the cards for them anymore 🙁

nancy dillingham

Robin and Patrick–yes. I believe that KM in her interview said the audience wants to see a love story. Enough said. As I said in a post after that interview, KM “gets” it.

Patrick

her “gut” tells her

her intellect fires

she resonates for.. the audience and with; the audience

The only thing about the Maxie’s baby story that bothers me, or confuses me is, in real if I was pregnant and I miscarried there is no way I could conceive the same night. When you are pregnant your body produces hormones that prevent you from ovulating so there wouldn’t be an egg available right? This is nature’s way of making sure you don’t fertilized another egg when you are already pregnant. So I thought surrogates were suppose to get these hormones to suppress their cycles for the same reason So how could Maxie get pregnant on the same night she miscarried? Doesn’t anyone else find that strange?

Fabia
Fabia

Of course it is strange, Mary. We have already discussed the liberties that soaps take when writing a storyline. This is another perfect example. There would have to be an egg waiting to be fertilized. It does not seem feasible for one to be present at that particular time albeit anything is possible. But, realistically speaking, what woman wants to have sex soon after a miscarriage…bleeding and probably in pain???? C’mon, now, writers!!!!

tina
tina

Robin was boring,she needs to stay gone and let Patrick and sabrina be happy

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Chemistry and romance is always there between Luke and Laura–their love and romance is eternal; anyone saying the opposite just has to look at the scenes and feel the love. Sure, there is some melancholy there–they’ve been through a lot! But that makes the love shine brighter.
Contrary to one school of thought, the “story” is not over when two people who love as fiercely as Laura and Luke; what a rich history to draw upon. The are the BEST couple for exciting storylines bacause of their history–and their pain and sorry and–I could go on. Don’t you see the posssibility for so much story? Why are we fans begging for more? I rest my case.
PS I hope what I read is true–that Genie finished negotiations and will be back in Oct. (But keep Tracy and Stefan out of the real mix.) And I read that Genie’s pic will now be in opening credits. My question: why would Genie have had to negotiate for that? Shouldn’t TPTB have put her pic up just to honor her time and work at GH? Why does Genie have to fight so hard for what should rightfully be given to her with gratitude and love? We all love you, Genie! Brava!

I really think….

that… in order to cement the being…. that Luke and Laura are….

the writers’ need to give them position…. ie: a job… both of them with their own relevance…

ie: it’s not possible… to send them on escapades… at this “late” date.. ie: advanced age… LOL

it doesn’t ring true….

yes… the aura that was… and lives on…

is the two formidable pair… that… I believe as well… no longer fits…

ie; going from the epi that the two acknowledged that they are “finished”

ie: in Mylo’ apt?

anyway… get Luke back involved with Tracy… so what if they marry again… it was FUN to watch him at the Q mansion

Laura… I just don’t know… have her working at Carly’s hotel… or at the hospital… doing like Jenn… at DAYS… PR for General Hos

it’s unbelievable.. that the writers’ bring her back… and leave her hanging’

and we have to believe… that this is not what Genie Francis wants again

Thanks for the explanation, Patrick.
Re Laura and Luke: I know the writers had them say that they no longer “fit”–but their eyes, particularly Laura’s said something different.
Of course, they fit and they always will.
When they parted before Laura went to Paris for her checkup, did you hear Luke say to her that he was sorry because he hadn’t always been gracious–and thanked her properly?
And did you see their faces when the scene occurred–and did you see Laura’s (Genie’s) real tears and hear that old tenderness come back into Luke’s (Tony’s) voice?
More L and L definitely coming–it inevitable–and what the actors and viewers want, I really believe.

@Patrick…what in the world are you sputtering? Why can you not write in a manner which a reader can follow? You say a whole bunch of nothing. I speak as an English major and I can assure you that your writing, as such, is unintelligible. It is okay to use…, (dot dot dot) but, at the end of a sentence and not in mid-sentence….why would you chop up your sentences that way? Is that how you process your thoughts? You wrote…” …wary of the onset of her meds…”. Huh? Do you perchance mean “onslaught”? You could express your feelings much more meaningfully by simple and uncomplicated prose. I get that you are a thinker and “philosophe” at heart. Having said that, try to gather what you would like to impart before putting pen to paper, as it were. I beg your forgiveness for sounding harsh…..I do mean well.

Maybe when Britt finally gets found out about the true biological parents are, the Nikolas will break things off with Britt. Then maybe Robin will get tired of waiting on Patrick to make a decision and she will turn to her hero Nikolas for comfort possibly.

Breaking News

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!

Dominic Zamprogna Speaks Out On His Decision To Leave GH, His Final Scenes With Emme Rylan & How Dante Exited The Canvas

A few weeks ago, General Hospital fans watched as one of the series beloved stars, Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) exited the show in scenes opposite his longtime on-screen love interest, Emme Rylan (Lulu).  For nine years, Zamprogna brought authenticity, emotion, and heart to the son of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) to life.  While Dante’s journey started out with a bang, literally (thanks, Sonny!), over the years it appeared he was taking a backseat in meatier storylines.  All the while, Dante and Lulu remained one of the more popular duos with the viewers.

After much reflection, Zamprogna decided it was time for him to walk away from a place that became his second home.  His desire now shifted to play different characters in different projects, but it was not without taking many things into account with his life-changing decision.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Dominic to glean more insight into: if there was anything GH could have done to make him sign on the dotted line again, what went down to make those final scenes seem so rushed, how it was to say goodbye to his co-workers in front of the camera and behind the scenes, if he would consider a return at some point, and how would he feel if GH now planned on recasting Dante, and much more.

For us; we recall meeting Dominic for the first times just six months into his time at General Hospital for our first interview together.  We were instantly struck by his sincerity, humor, and his eagerness to learn from some of the best in the business.  Now exiting as a “soap vet“, per se, it is a full-circle moment that we had the time to conclude his GH journey with this conversation.  Here’s what Dom had to say about it all.

What were the factors that contributed to your decision to exit GH?  Was there a pivotal moment where you were feeling, and recognizing, that you were underutilized that you felt you needed to make a change? 

DOMINIC:  When you named me the “Most Underutilized Actor of 2017!” (Laughs) Well, my plan was never to stay forever.  But half-way through my second contract,  Emme Rylan (Lulu) and I were approached by our producer on set, who said words to the effect of: you guys have been on the sideline, time to get you into the game.  That led to the Dante cheating storyline, which gave us story for about a year … which was great!  But as that ended, so did any subsequent storylines, it seemed.  In the year that followed, I started entertaining thoughts of leaving.  By the next year, I started talking about it with my wife, Linda, who had started to notice that maybe I wasn’t happy anymore, and I wasn’t.  That’s not a good feeling, especially if you’re bringing that energy home with you.  Then, I made the mistake of going on social media, which is a terrible place to go sometimes.  But fans were saying the same sort of things I was feeling.  Was it all due to story or lack-thereof?  No.  I was starting to crave playing other roles, and that’s hard to do when you’re under contract.

Were discussions even had with Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and the powers-that-be about your feelings of dissatisfaction over not being utilized more in storylines?

DOMINIC:  The discussions happened late.  Not until the negotiation process, actually.  I’m no squeaky wheel I guess, but I also don’t feel it’s in my job description to be one.  I did put out a few ideas here and there, but they didn’t happen.  I know other actors have tried the same and it didn’t lead to anything for them, either.  I was a creation of Bob Guza (former head writer, GH), and maybe I was spoiled by the amount of great writing I received while he was there.

There had to be some sadness in walking away from GH.

DOMINIC:  Oh yeah… it was sad.  I built that character, and now here I was walking away from it, and essentially my second family.  That’s been the hardest part.  Lifelong friendships were made, and memories.  However, it’s been over a month and a half since I’ve been at GH and I feel happy.  I’ve been up in Canada shooting Tin Star, which has been a great experience.  I’ve stayed in touch with everybody and I miss everybody, in fact, I just spoke to Mo (Maurice Benard) yesterday, and I’m in class with Emme (she won’t leave me alone).  But, I feel like I made the right choice for me at this moment.

To clarify; were you actually trying to work out a deal to stay put, but both sides just could not hammer things out to a satisfactory conclusion?

DOMINIC:  We did try to work out a deal.  After more talks and conversations, I felt maybe we were going to get things done.  I was being told things would change and maybe shift things in the direction we wanted to go.  But at the end of the day, it’s gotta be in writing.  I feel like I’d been told similar things in the past which hadn’t come to fruition.  I was also reminded that it was me who needed to sign my name on that dotted line and live with that decision, and I chose not to do so.

If someone would have said to you: “We have an “A” story for you, and you are going to be driving it,” would you have been more apt to stay?   

DOMINIC:  There was talk about us sitting down and talking about storylines, but that didn’t end up happening, not sure why.  And even if it did, I don’t know that it would’ve changed my mind about leaving, anyway.   But just to be clear: I have no anger towards anybody.  It’s all a business at the end of the day.  Both sides did what they felt was right.  For me, I just felt this chapter had come to an end.

When, and how did you tell on-screen scene partner, Emme Rylan that you were leaving?  Was she happy for you and your decision?

DOMINIC:  Emme knew really early on.  Once January rolled around I was like: “I have been thinking for the last six to nine months that I am going to go.”   I wanted her to know, because we have been a couple for five years on the show.  Emme was very happy for me.  I went, “Wait a minute!  Don’t be this happy.  I’m leaving.” (Laughing)  

What happened when you told your on-screen mom, Lisa LoCicero ?

DOMINIC:  She was sad, but she is also said, “You’re in your prime, go see what’s out there!”   I wouldn’t have done this move if I did not get support at home.  My wife is the rock and the one that makes this household go.  Some things outside the show were starting to happen; I had a nice screen-test for a pilot, and then I booked these four episodes of Tin Star.  When you have choices in life; you have power and control over your future.  I think Emme and Lisa as actors realized that.  That’s what made them happy for me … for the future.  The last nine years were exciting.  However, when you can have a little bit more say in what you are doing on a day to day basis, that is empowering.  So, in saying, “no” to something, and saying, “Thank you, but that’s not what I am looking for right now,” that can feel good.

It was a shame that through all the regimes that they rarely wrote any scenes between Dante and his father, Sonny.  What was Maurice Benard’s reaction when you told him you were leaving?

DOMINIC:  It has been pretty publicized that he and I were dissatisfied at the lack of  storyline, or scenes together.  Maurice asked the powers-that-be, “Why aren’t we working together more?”  We never had a clear answer as to why.  He didn’t know from one day to the next what was happening with my contract talks.  Mo saw me smiling one day and asked, “So does that smile mean you’re staying?”  And I said, “No, that smile is because I’m leaving.” (Laughs)  I said that more to mess with him, and make him sad.  He said, “As long as you are good financially, then I am all for anybody getting out of here and seeing what else is out there.” Really, Mo talks people into leaving so he can get more screen-time. (Laughs)

Let’s talk about the final airshow, and the story that came out of left field to facilitate your exit.  Was that written quickly to accommodate a shooting schedule or contract completion?  It felt rushed to the viewing audience.

DOMINIC:  Left field is right!  I still had a week and a half left of work when they found out I wasn’t going to re-sign, and within twelve hours I had six exit scenes written.  So, it wasn’t done to facilitate anything but a set (Lante’s house), I think.  My final tape date was May 18th, and Emme and I had scenes on the Wednesday or Thursday before that.  I guess they wanted my last scenes that aired to be with Emme, and that might have been the only scheduling day that worked for the set and the actors, and maybe that’s also why it felt so rushed.  All I could assume is that they didn’t think I was really going to leave so they didn’t plan for it, or they chose to protect themselves in this way, by not making a big deal about it.  I had another week of scenes in the PCPD with Chase (Josh Swickard) and Michael (Chad Duell) that was shot afterward.  But they had nothing to do with Dante’s “secret mission!”

I thought, “Wait!  Is that it?  Is this Dominic’s final show?  Dante doesn’t say goodbye to his mother… his father … or his son, Rocco?

DOMINIC:  Yeah, that was tough for me.  After 9 years you think you’re going to get a little bit better of a send off.   You also, hope they’re going to honor the character.  Dante wouldn’t leave to go to the 7-eleven without saying goodbye to his mother and kids.   Maurice and I talked about that.  He said, “I guess, they don’t want people to feel really sad.  You and me doing some goodbye scenes, people are going to be devastated.”   I agree with that.  However, I also think it’s a soap and that’s what fans want … good, ole drama.  I would have loved to have had scenes with Sonny, Olivia, and Dante’s kids, but when you make a decision like this, how you leave on-air is not up to you.  Both parties are going to handle it how it’s best for them.   I was very grateful they gave Emme and I something to seek our teeth into. 

They were very sad scenes.  You are one of those actors that can take the material and connect with it while delivering it in a very subtle and heartfelt way.  How was Emme after your final scenes?

DOMINIC:  She was kind of crying the whole time, going “Damn you! Damn you.”   I was having fun with it, because I love making Emme cry.  It’s not a very difficult thing to do.  (Laughs).  We were both pretty teary-eyed, actually.  Then, when we finished the scenes and I looked over and I saw how upset the crew was, that’s what really got me.  Barbara, one of the camera operators actually jokingly apologized; suggesting that if my last shot was blurry it was my fault!  As an actor, when you make the crew feel something it kind of gives you some extra good feels. That was always the best feeling, talking to Craig (our stage manager), or Donna (head of makeup department) after a scene to get the honest truth on how you did.  I’ll miss them.

Viewers, watching Dante have this flashback about the guy who was responsible for Lulu going overboard the Haunted Star a few years ago, probably needed a moment to connect the dots.  Some viewers were going, “What?  Dante is going after the guy that tried to drown Lulu from two years ago?”

DOMINIC:  When I read that in the script even I went, “What?” Who’s that?”  I had no idea, either. (Laughs)

Then there was this:  Dante was so hard on Lulu for her pursuing her dream as a journalist and how it inadvertently got Nathan killed.  Then all of a sudden in your final scenes, Dante has a line to Lulu in which he says something to the effect of: I understand now – you got to do, what you got to do.  In story, prior to these scenes it was leaning more towards Dante and Lulu were going to break-up over what had recently transpired.

DOMINIC:  Which, who knows?  If Dante had stayed in Port Charles it could have been the direction they were going in.  It certainly looked like they were building toward conflict, conflict, conflict, but with me leaving it was much sweeter to leave on the note that we left on, instead of Dante leaving, because he can’t deal with being around Lulu. This all leads me to believe that they didn’t want to do anything too permanent to give them time to make the proper decisions.

What was the last day of shooting like for you?  Was it hard to get through?

DOMINIC:  It felt like a regular day, and my final scenes were up towards the end of the tape day. They had a cake afterwards.  Frank briefly spoke and introduced Maurice; who said a bunch of sweet words.  That meant a lot to me.  I said “goodbye” to everybody and took some photos, and that was it.  I already had my room packed up.  Once you’re ready to go, you’re ready to go.  Afterwards, I went out with Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) and Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Ex-Carlos) for some beers and wings at the bar down the street.  It wasn’t until everybody came back after a two-week break that it felt real, because then I was receiving text messages from people saying, “We’re back.  Why the hell aren’t you here?”

The door has been left open for Dante to return.  Would you ever come back?

DOMINIC:  Of course, at some point.  But it might not be my choice, they might recast.  They told me they won’t, but who knows what’ll be done.  Do I think you can just recast a role?  No, I think it’s always a tough sell, but they’ve done it with bigger names/characters than mine.  I would be a little surprised, only because there hasn’t been much story for Dante in the last three years.  For me, as of now, I’ve moved on, and I’m very happy with my decision and my life.  It’s sad in other respects, don’t get me wrong.  I’ve read things that people have said on Twitter, and I want everyone to know I’ve seen it all and it means a lot to me.  People have been beautiful to me.  I’m truly overwhelmed by the love.  I thought there would be more of, “Who cares?” when fans found out I left.   I must have done something right during the years I was at GH.

Did you think when you made the decision to leave they would kill-off Dante? 

DOMINIC:  No, not at all.  I don’t think killing off Dante would be a good idea, especially after they killed Nathan, and also because of the climate we live in with police involved shootings and violence, in general.  In a perfect world as an actor, you crave the opportunity to have one last moment with the other characters that have been important to your character over the years.  That’s all I would have wanted for myself, and Dante.  I’ll take what I got though.  It was extremely meaningful because of what Emme and I had and built.  I feel we got to the heart and soul of those two characters in a pretty short amount of time in our scenes.

Speaking of Nathan, I think thus far those funeral scenes, which you were wonderful in, and the story arc revolving around his death, are GH’s best bet for an Emmy in the Drama Series category next year. 

DOMINIC:  I agree.  It was so well-done.  We’d all would like to go out like that!  Tragic, but it made for great TV and great soap.  It was phenomenally well-acted across the board.  Lots of Emmy reel stuff for Michelle Stafford (Nina) and Kirsten Storms (Maxie), and Kathleen Gati (Liesl), and hopefully for our directors and crew, also.  They did an amazing job bringing that to life.

This now leaves Josh Swickard as the lone cop now by default on GH.   he PCPD is notorious for being the worst cop shop in the history of soaps! (Laughs) They can’t ever solve a crime.

DOMINIC: (Laughs) I know!  What is Josh is going to do?   Maybe between Chase and Jordan (Vienssa Antoine) they will solve crimes.  Maybe, they’ll bring on a new cop.  Josh is a great guy and I enjoyed working with him.  At the beginning, we had that contentious relationship between the two guys.  That would’ve been fun if it lasted longer, where they had this continual real dislike for one another.  Who knows?  With Dante gone, maybe they will start solving some crimes! (Laughs) Maybe now the PCPD will be the greatest police unit in the USA.

Over your nine years at GH, would you still consider that your best storyline was coming on to the show and then having Sonny shoot Dante, only for it to turn out that he just shot his own son?

DOMINIC:  Yes, I think you have to.  That was my intro.  They had this story planned eight months before they even cast the role.  To get to that moment, was a classic soap cliffhanger.  I grew up watching soap operas with my grandparents, and if they had been alive for that scene they would have lost it, because it was something that ‘old school’ soap fans would really dig.  For me, doing that story felt so special.  ABC also pumped it with the promotion, and the promos, and the TV spots, and amped it up.  I didn’t feel it disappointed.  It was actually the audition scene that I had to perform to get the part!  Then six months later you get to say these lines that got you the part, and you hope you don’t whiff on the softball.

While putting together and producing the GH 55th anniversary tribute package for this year’s Daytime Emmys, I included that moment between Sonny and Dante.  I remember watching the complete scene before editing it and the dialog was so good.  It still holds up to this day.

DOMINIC:  My manager was at the Emmys that night, and said what a great moment that was.  I meant to thank you for that, because I really appreciated it being in there.

Courtesy/ABC

Are there any other scenes that come to mind that you are most proud of?

DOMINIC:  I also really loved the scenes with Max Gail (Mike). He is a special guy.  There was so much in our scenes; where Dante finds him with Avery in the stables.  Those moments are going to stick with me for a long time.

On June 28th, the airdate of your last episode, you posted a tweet to the fans that read: “The love you guys have given me over the years and continue to give is overwhelming.  It is I that must thank YOU!”  I thought that was extremely touching and very appreciated by the fans.

DOMINIC:  I was thinking, “Man, I have to thank you, because I would not legitimately be here if you hadn’t liked this guy, Dante.”  It was bringing tears to my eyes reading what people were saying, and seeing how much love I was receiving.

Tell me about your role in the British-Canadian production of Tin Star?

DOMINIC:  It’s a recurring role,  I’ve been working on it since March.  It’s something very different from what I’ve been doing the last 9 years.  Can’t give much away, but I play a hired gun type of guy.  There are some great scenes and moments, and I was lucky enough to work with Christina Hendricks, John Lynch, and the legend, Tim Roth.

Do you feel now that you have had some time away now from GH, and have been playing another role, that the thought of playing Dante for you at this point is like: “Been there. Done that?”

DOMINIC:  I would never say Dante is done forever.  Right now for me, he is.  They left it open, hopefully they left it open for me, but every actor hopes that.  We want our cake and to eat it too!  I want to leave right now, but I want you to want me to come back some day.  No one wants their role to be recast.  But it’s an important character, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see.  Who knows what the future holds.  I left on good terms.  Just so everyone knows; I didn’t spring something on GH on the last day of my contract.  It’s important that I let people know that I didn’t just wake up one day and say, “See ya”.  This also wasn’t about money.  Sure, we want to be paid what we believe we’re worth.  But this in no way was about me asking for the moon, or I was going to leave.  It was a very, very difficult decision.

So, what do you think about how GH wrapped up Dante’s story for Dominic’s exit? Would you like him to return to GH sooner than later?  Do you think the role of Dante was problematic to write for?  What were your favorite scenes of Dom’s during his time at GH? Let us know via the comment section below.
