General Hospital is on the move this coming Monday September 10th to its new time slot of 2PM EST & 1PMPST/CST, which is one hour earlier than fans have been used to seeing the beloved citizens of Port Charles.  And now, these same citizens face life or death explosive drama at the hands of Jerry Jacks!

In the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the series EP Frank Valentini previews the drama in which we learn not everyone in town will survive the week! The episodes will include new insight into Jerry’s master plan, a shooting, and an explosion, in addition to the waterborne poison released on the town!

Valentini said he was thrilled with the outcome of  the location shoot that is the backdrop for next week noting:  “I’m really proud of the team and I am really proud of the actors.  I just think everybody really knocked it out of the park and the audience is going to be really thrilled with the performances from the actors and the story.  It’s really exciting stuff.”

Now after the jump, watch the just released extended General Hospital promo for next week ushering the show into its new time slot.  Then let us know if you are excited to see the story unfold?

Looks awesome! Can’t wait. But now I will have to choose between GH & DOOL :'(

There are always ways to watch both nowadays, between DVR, Tivo, or whatever recording device you have, and in the case of GH, you can always catch episodes on ABC.com or YouTube, I’m not sure about DOOL since I don’t watch it. But you don’t have to pick one or the other, you can still watch both.

I cannot wait until next week. I’m so anticipating what’s going to happen to the citizens of PC. It seems that Jerry is always up to no good so it’s just a matter of who’s going to get to him first and finish him off. I love everybody but I’m more anxious to see what’s gonna happen to my beloved John McBain. He’s my all time favorite and I just hope he comes out of this mess unscathed. Lovin me some McBain!!

GH rocks, pissed off about Steve leaving, hope before jason is gone for good he has a reunion with Elizabeth and leaves her pregnant, the storyline that would generate would be awesome, i can picture Sam and Elizabeth coming together for the sake of the baby, and wanting the babies to bond, this time around the baby should be a girl,Gh owes Laison fans this much.

Oh God, please. Hasn’t Elizabeth been pregnant often enough, with enough different men NOT her husband? And you want her left with another child to pawn off on Gran?

No we don’t need that but let’s see Carly has three kids by three different fathers and oh so does Alexis everyone seems to forget that. It seems every time RH was pregnant in real life they thought they had to write it in.

Now this looks like a quality soap! Still concerned on how Jason will be exited. Will some of us get what we have been waiting for……end of Jason and Sam (baby isn’t his or her’s?) Get some quality s/l of Liz, Jason and Jake being back??!!

I cannot believe how good GH has been lately. The team of Ron and Frank have done it again! Brought me back to GH, in front of the tv, not just leaving it on and going about my business. Whats funny is I had a dream, PC blew up and the survivors all moved to LLandview! lol How awesome. But alas, it was just a dream……

Frank and Ron… you have proven yourselves with OLTL, and again with this wonderful storyline with GH. Thank you guys for your hard work, your talents…Keep it going! We are watching! and ……. you ARE appreciated!

That is the most exciting promo I have ever seen for General Hospital. To bad ABC doesn’t pour some money into that promo and promote GH like they do some of their new loser program’s.

LOL.. I should have known they would make it all about Sonny. 🙂 I’ll be waiting to see how that ties in.

It will be nice to see a location shoot though.

I was excited until I saw that they pretty much made that promo ‘ALL’ about Sonny Corinthos, AGAIN. Seriously must 99.9% of the storylines revolve around or involve Sonny and or Jason? So sick of the mobsters at this point they should just rename the darn soap. 🙁

Brian

guess you’ll be happy once Jason leaves the show in roughly six weeks.

i am ok with that… provided we get some of the original cast back…

I’ve got to say that I can not for next week to start. I’ve got to say that I do agree with many I really hope McBain does not get hurt. I hope after this him and Sam have the talk and realize that they want to pursue the relationship. I also want my Liasion back before Steve leaves. So I again hope we see Mcbam finally turn into the wonderful couple that they are.

IMHO Sam and John are boring together! John is very quiet and needs the opposite. How about John and Carly?

Looks good to me! A good way to send some out in glory so some more OLTL characters can come over.

After a promo like that AND this storyline so far I ask: How can anyone complain about GH or Cartini? WOW!!!!

I wish they would show that promo in Primetime! We have to see Scandel and Revenge promos. The nightime people should get to see GH promos. Maybe they are showing it?? I do not watch primetime ABC

Christine

I know. When and where do they show the promo? I don’t watch ABC daytime other than GH and nor do I watch primetime, but I have to see Revenge, 666, and everything else promoted … including that G– awful CHEW!

No not necessarily happy. Happy that Steve Burton has found another venture that makes him happy. My issue isn’t with the characters it’s more so with having all roads lead back to mob ties, meaning Sonny and or Jason. It’s just to the point I’m like enough all ready. There are other awesome characters on this show, let’s give them something that has absolutely nothing at all to do with Sonny Corinthos, Jason Morgan, the mob. Then maybe I’ll start watching more, I only watch now for Todd.

Patrick

Carly! Carly. “Carly”

and, it’s ALL, because, of: Jax.

As soon as Carly saw Jax, walk in to the hospital room… She emodied… his wife. Radiant… Lovely… twosome. They inherently know they belong together! I love them.

all things considered… Ingo Rademacher… needs to return full-time… to replace Steve Burton… and be the perfect foible for Sonny.

I don’t understand what so many who complain about Sonny expect. It is quite apparent that Sonny is the face of GH now. Yes he gets a lot of screen time, but it is tapering. It takes time for the mob to go away. It’s kind of like pregnancy weight gain – you didn’t put it all on in one day and you can’t expect to lose it all in one day.

They have to clean up the Joe Scully mess which I heard might take several months as he has big plans to takeover Sonny’s territory or something. They need to slowly get Sonny out of the mob and give him a focus on something else. I think it would be good to see him teach boxing at the new ring (kind of like THE WIRE) and that way he could be on a few times a week, but not the majority.

I think the fact that he is sort of on the same side as McBain and his son shows that Sonny is not so much the hated mobster anymore. I see him cooperating more with law enforcement and possibly respected.

That being said, I am just fine with the promo being centered around Sonny because Maurice Benard is a very charismatic man and he gets one’s attention when he is on screen. Sonny has been the face of GH for quite some time now. Maybe if others (vets) had not left it would still be focused on them.

The promo looked so much better than any of the other stunts or effects that the previous regime did in the past. I just think GH is firing on all cylinders right now.

The bottom line is that you will never make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time. People are crying for their beloved One LIfe to Live and All My Children characters. Well what about the Loving/The City, Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Another World, Santa Barbara, Search for Tomorrow, Passions, Port Charles, and anyone else I forgot to mention? Is General Hospital just supposed to dump GH characters in favor of canceled soap characters? This isn’t a list for Santa Claus. Come on people. Just be happy with the turnaround that the new team has made and be happy your show is still on the air. Rejoice when a GH vet or an actor from a canceled show comes on. Stop being so greedy.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
