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’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!

The Port of Los Angeles is seeing a lot of action these days thanks to Y&R and GH.

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.

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.

LisaK

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 Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
