OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Photo: JPI

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.

I thought he looked familiar but couldn’t place him. I also hadn’t read this post before seeing him on GH. He had a lot of chemistry with Emme, so if they aren’t bringing Dominic back ~ which would be stupid ~ Mark might be fun…even with a character that isn’t already married.

It was Dom’s choice to leave; he’s said that while he might be open to making an occasional appearance he’s not ready to resume the role permanently…if ever. So, he wasn’t let go.

looking for delete option; this comment was originally to correct something I already wrote but I edited it. So..this is a filler since the site won’t let box be empty.

I was hoping he would join the show as a recast for Lucky. We need the character back in Port Charles, especially now that Chase seems to be the only detective at the PCPD. Valerie is barely on and I’m not sold on the new actress playing her. I’d take a recast Lucky over nuValerie any day. But, it will be interesting to see if Dustin has any connections to Port Charles already. Mark is a good actor, so hopefully GH uses his talents well.

Peter & Maxie are SO boring. Also boring, their third wheel, Lulu. It’s Summer, and there is no excitement, heat, or drama.

Couldn’t agree more! I do NOT see the appeal of Maxie and Peter! And Lulu is boring and annoying these days with her investigative reporting…lol. Its so ridiculous.

DMRR

AGREED!

Hey, DMRR—-I soooo agree with you—They’re young; yet their conversations are so wishy-washy—and they’re always sitting around, eating or talking about Lulu.
Lulu!! Mamma mia!! This stupid storyline must be the most nauseating one of all—-to catch a thief through pretend dating? Gimme a break!–what’s up with these writers?.
I am glad Hayden is back—a welcome distraction, at least.
I know many do not like her, but she’s, nonetheless, interesting.
As I said when she left; Hayden did not lose the baby–he/she is alive and well. I do believe this is a secret that is festering within her. She has tried telling Finn several times—but, as the soap gods would have it—-it is prolonged and prolonged and prolonged– we shall see.
No more Anna and Finn—PLEASE!!

DMRR

I can’t think of any couple that has chemistry.

Ciao, Bella! It’s been too long since we’ve crossed paths! Hope you had a memorable and enjoyable 4th! Other than taking the occasional peek at my old favorites, I haven’t been “hanging out” in Port Charles for awhile, but my word, when I read about the lackluster activities going on this summer, I feel as though I’m not missing a thing! (Although Dr. O and her latest antics may yet save the day….hope her drunken, foreshadowing? utterances bring some welcome drama back to this currently boring burg!) As for Hayden, I am sorry to see her return….I know you abhor Anna with Finn, but a simple breakup between them would have sufficed sans the mother and bambino scenario you suggest as their ultimate romance killer. Then again, it wouldn’t be GH if we didn’t have a few characters upon which to disagree….now that OldNina is gone—-YEA!—I suppose we will need another one for us to beg to differ….Hayden works for me in the short term! And then there’s always, always Ava….LOL.

Hi, Shaybelle…
Thank you—very busy summer—we’ve been taking, short, week-end vacays , here and there—the children wanted to go to Fire Island Saturday and Sunday…….of course, my son needed to investigate why it is called Fire Island—Who knows what was going on in his head, LOL. He expected to see fire everywhere. We had to explain that “Fire” was supposed to have been “Five”—-Oops, Shay—I guess “typos” existed since the Cuneiform script, LOL. We will go away for the month of August—won’t stop me from peeking in…..
I am questioning why Haden is back. To cause havoc? Is she Jax’s pawn?….or vice versa? I think she wants to get back with Finn and will use the baby to do so. Regardless, I love the actress and I am happy to see her. Anna is passe’. She does not have IT any more, which makes Finn even more stale and boring than he already is.
The same can be said about nuNina. All her attempts at coyness and try-as-she-might-attempts to parrot Michelle’s Nina ( both verbally and physically) are for naught. There is no “poetry in motion”– whatever nuNina wears appears lackluster–just my opinion, LOL….I do not like her–poor imitation. She should not try so hard. Keep it simple.
Ava? Indomitable –she is the queen of soapland, LOL.
So good to hear from you, amichetta–❤️

Shay
Shay

Well, CeeCeeGirl, color me amazed that “Five” or “Fire” Island is considered a family-friendly place to visit! Given its long-held reputation as a flamin’ hot spot of decadent adult activities, I never would have imagined that it was “kid-approved!” Lol….Then again, that’s what I love about your posts….not only are they highly-entertaining, but also extremely informative! Hope everyone had a wonderful time!!! (By the way, have you taken the kinder to Philly yet? Great things to see there…The Franklin Institute is absolutely amazing and of course, the “Old City” with Independence Hall, the Ross House, et al, really brings to life the details of the birth of our great nation…I still remember being in total awe as I stepped foot upon those historical sites.) Wish I could have the same reaction to this summer’s GH happenings! “Lackluster” is an understatement, indeed, mia amica!…I find NuNina no more appealing than the much-loathed 1.0 version…I still consider her to be an unnecessary character! As for Anna, lifting the incredible onus of Peter being her birth son would do a world of good for this once-dynamic woman…pawn him off as Alex’s mistake and let her noble sister move on to bigger and better things! (With the help of the gallant Robert Scorpio!) In terms of Hayden, the less time she spends in Port Charles, the better! I have no desire to see Finn (nor Michael Easton…) depart GH, so I hope his ex is only popping in to cause temporary trouble and then will be speedily sent on her way after she is once again revealed as perpetrating yet another scheme and scam on the local denizens! Lastly, regarding Ava? The less said, the better! I’m sick to the back teeth of her! Basta, basta! Whether we agree or not on the last one, it’s still always good to hear from you, CeeCee…….have a great week with the kiddos and stay cool! Later!

Celia

LOL, my Shay—-Fire Island and its fiery, dinful ( not a typo; den+sinful)—–reputation—not to worry–lots of security around.
Nico and cousins are going through the pirate phase (yet still holding on to his interest in ‘space’). They want to visit every island off NYC and beyond. Yeah–Right!! We would never stop feeding his imagination. He actually loves Chappy—-great for exploration.
You know what a nerd I am, Shay……I know things that normal, sane people would never even think of pursuing. Fire Island is fifth of the five islands–thus, “Five”— however there are ever so many ‘ifs’ and ‘ buts’—who really knows?
I have thought the same about Peter as Alex’s son since the onset of this inane mess…..could very well be that Anna only thinks she’s his mother due to Alex’s mind games. …not really capturing my interest. Peter is not the alluring type–booooriiiing!!
My love “affair” with Anna is over, LOL.
Furthermore, other than John McBain, Michael Easton has yet to land a fitting role—-especially not as Anna’s boy-toy…..
I am so enjoying the resurgence of Liesl—said she to weirdNuNina, ” dat Shiloh–vat a “shlime” ( paraphrasing). LOL.
There aren’t that many characters who are pulling me—the kids, yes—Sonny is still the hypocrite he always was; as is Carly. Crooks and manipulators to the roots.
I know you don’t want to hear this, mia bella, but I love Alexis’ new demeanor—I like the character and she looks great!! Jude remarked, “She got legs”— what can I say? He’s a leg guy, among other ” things”. Men!!
I must say we finally agree on Nina…..nuNina, that is. “I can see clearly now” Michelle is gone, what it was you were “seeing”. My adoration for MS blinded me from assessing the superfluousness of the character.
Plus, Michelle’s growth as Nina was stumped—she came off as either nuts, child-like and mindless, at times….gullible as Rose Nylund….or Alice—( In Wonderland).
I am waiting for her to pick up where she left off on Y&R by making her armor shine again….
What is it about Ava you don’t like, Shay? ….. beside her robbing the cradle; envy of her own daughter, voracious sexual appetite ( could be a good thing, LOL)…..and her overall “menefreghista” attitude? ( carefree)—which is just a facade, in my opinion.
That’s the appeal, Shay….she’s drop-dead fantabulously risque—and it fits her like a glive—the character you love to hate. I love Maura. I love Ava.
Ahh, to be in Port Charles…..!!!!
Ciao, mia cara….

Shay

I’ve never thought of you as a “nerd,” CeeCeeGirl! Just brilliant and inquisitive…seems you have passed on those qualities to Nico! (Seriously, why don’t you simply buy him his own island for Christmas? I know there are many private ones surrounding NYC..in fact, I recently saw one on the market with its own magnificent home…I loved it!) But really…he sounds like a great kiddo!!! No doubt down to fabulous parenting!…Now then, on to Port Charles! ‘Tis a true shame that you never had the opportunity to enjoy Michael Easton as both the vampire Caleb Morley—-and his alter ego(s)—-on the GH spinoff. He was fantastic in those versatile roles! Dark, mysterious, cool and frequently, evil personified! That’s totally this actor’s best milieu…the bespectacled, cerebral, quirky doctor mode is not. Twice GH has attempted to mold him into a less than dynamic, basically nice guy medico and it has not done Easton’s immense talents justice…he should have been a Cassadine! Now that would have been a perfect fit! (Preferably Valentin…as first described long before he entered the canvas…) Portraying Silas Clay and Finn as they were written hasn’t challenged Easton’s immense gift for the dramatic…which I have also witnessed in his numerous primetime appearances, and were, more often than not, of a highly nefarious nature….he always nailed them! Of course, that fact doesn’t diminish my admiration for Easton, because I like him, no matter the character he happens to be currently playing. I just wish there were more befitting material in to which he could sink his teeth! (No vampire pun intended…LOL!) As for your characterization of “NuNina” as “weird?” Good call, but I also think that label pretty suitably covers the former version as well….as you know, I just never took to MS or the role she inhabited….not sure which came first, the chicken or the egg??? Ditto for Ava….I simply do not care for her…period! Maybe it’s because both of those characters contributed to GH losing what I term its “true identity.” Every time one of those big soap “gets” showed up in Port Charles, it seemed the show departed further and further from its recognizable brand….and being a longtime viewer who loved the tried and true formula, I found that wholly unacceptable. (Sort of what Y&R fans have recently been facing with the past showrunner’s attempt to reinvent that soap…) All I know is that I have deeply resented the soap that GH has become over the last few years….it just doesn’t possess that reliably cozy, comfortable feel that it once did… do you get my drift??? In terms of Alexis, well, I was always rather indifferent to her, until she became so annoying and overbearing that she could no longer be ignored….especially given that too often one cannot discern between the fictional character and her portrayer with their socio-political screeds. Huge turn-off there! Having said that, despite our opposing opinions on the aforementioned particulars, I’m glad that our vehemently expressed points of view never seem to dim our… Read more »

Hey, Shaybelle,
Don’t give Jude any ideas of buying an island, LOL….father and son are two peas in a pod. Do you know that Nico is an inch aller than I?
He reminds me of that fact daily.
As far as Easton, I loved him on OLTL as John McBain. He and “Natalie” fit so well as a couple—loved those days–sigh!!
As you know, I have only been watching GH for five years—but, I must say I agree with you—the remaining soaps leave a bitter taste in my mouth—a steady progression to the summit only to dive into the dark waters of the abyss.
So disappointing–all of them, Shay. I know I sound like the “black bird of doom” and a Debbie Downer—-but, gee, Shay……what can I say?? It’s the writing!!!!! The actors are impeccable—well, most of them, LOL….
Thank you for your kind, complementary words, amica bella…..you give me too much credit, my love—great for the ego. HaHa!!
Ciao…❤️

Shay

You are always most welcome for the positive comments…I just call them as I see them, CeeCeeGirl! As for the disappointing current state of daytime drama, I hear you! In terms of GH, I’m quite pleased that Robert Scorpio looks to be back in Port Charles for the longterm, well, whatever that means in “soapspeak!” Beyond that, I remain wholly unimpressed! And speaking of that subject, I feel compelled to mention that things just keep getting uglier and uglier from that one particular aforementioned character/actress for whom I hold no regard! Now she’s online attacking the First Daughter’s choice of birthday present for her little girl! It’s a beautiful pet that was said to be much desired, but apparently the choice regarding breed/color/name? of the canine triggered said femme into a nasty, insane frenzy attacking both the family and the gift itself! As if!!!! Talk about overreaching…it’s patently absurd! Take a look if you don’t believe moi. And here we’ve been behaving ourselves minding our p’s and q’s whilst. assiduously avoiding politics at this site, although that obviously has not applied to everyone as of late. All I did was mention my staunch opposition to a GH storyline (Kim’s sick drugging of an unsuspecting Drew…) directed to a like-minded poster who had also stated their distaste for it, and I was hammered with an all-too-familiar uncalled for personally and politically-motivated attack from another party. I’m sure you can guess…Needless to add, “Fasten your seatbelts…2020 is going to be a very bumpy ride!” Later, mia amica!

Hi, Shay,
I don’t always go on all the sites; nor follow all the threads diligently…..I missed that particular one, I guess—which is a good thing.
I would not want to revisit those very dark, ourageously scathing days.
I would think we’ve all grown up and moved away from that neighborhood. I suppose irreverence is an inherent, natural parasite for some—-need to shake it off or ‘pass’ it. LOL.
None of us should give a hoot, Shay….bad for our health and our aura. We want to breathe in clean air, not fetid ‘vapors’…..Life is too short to waste one minute of it on banalities that mean squat…..
I don’t pay too much attention to the same ‘stuff’ day in and day out—they have nothing left to say, so anything makes the news—even the color of one’s panties….if more time were spent in solving issues instead of nit-picking everything from A to Z, this would be such a wunderbar world. Stupid, catty, demeaning and ungodly words and behavior(s).
I am at my wit’s end with Kim…..I won’t question her state of mind. She so craved a piece of her son. I guess that by creating even a small part of him would fulfil that which even herself cannot fathom. She wants to touch the intagible– It’s not real….but, having been there, there is a certain amount of desperation where one seems to exist in an alternate world.
But, that’s not why I don’t like the character…..she just comes off as strange to me. ….not appealing in any way, shape or form. I did not like her on Days either—–I think she’s done. Unless, Drew, Hank and she are ‘tied’ together somehow—-I can’t see this character moving forward—-the sky needs to falls, placing her smack in the middle of a diabolical plot.
What do we really know about her? Nothing with true substance. Oscar is gone—so, there’s nothing for her except Julian?…. another superfluous character…
Good night, amica cara❤️.

Well, CeeCeeGirl, in theory, I could not agree with you more…I had also hoped that “neighborhood” had been vacated, too…but apparently, not completely. You know that in the past, I ignored a lot of really appalling, nasty replies to my inbox without engaging and that remains my policy, but one shouldn’t have to resort to such lengths. Up until recently, it had been very pleasant to once again visit here to mix and mingle with a variety of posters sans the vitriol..it had been a long time since I even felt like doing so again, and I found the experience to be like a breath of fresh air. However, I noticed that the same signs of dissension had suddenly been starting up once more….badgering others because one simply stated their objection to a soap storyline or character, then being met with a highly-argumentative ongoing debate or, in my case, a completely disproportionate personal and/or political attack which had absolutely nothing to do with the subject matter at hand (and which, in fact, shouldn’t have even see the light of day on this website!) Yes, I voiced my disgust with the truly strange Dr. Zero’s antics, as did others….so what? How they could be defended by any individual is beyond me, and I feel the same disdain and squeamishness with the deplorable cult tale… just as we both did when a deranged Nina went after a heavily-pregnant Ava…Some things go against a person’s notion of human decency, and therefore, are considered lacking in any semblance of entertainment value. GH has been plumbing the depths of depravity for awhile now…and I don’t like it! (I prefer the comedically-dark, far-fetched escapades of traditionally colorful characters like Heather, Helena, Faison and Dr. O, as opposed to more “ripped from the headlines” type of storylines…the more hilariously escapist, the better!) As for reigniting the flames of political enmity here, given the lessons of how 2016 tore the preceding MFSoaps site apart, one would think that it would be an area of contention best left for those cyber venues specifically designated for that purpose…there are plenty from which to choose if that is so desired. Please go find them and have at it! Having said that, unless it is extremely germane to the thread’s flow of conversation, I have been doing my best to avoid wading back into those shark-infested waters, particularly since some of my favorite people here are of a different view when it comes to the affairs of this country. It doesn’t make me like or appreciate them any less because of that, and I have thoroughly enjoyed touching base with them on the things we do have in common. As for you, I treasure our conversations whatever the subject and whether or not we are in synch because I respect your ideas and the manner in which you express them. I only mentioned the character/actress in question (and not by name…) since she is a frequent, mutual source of discussion between the… Read more »

Hey, Shaybelle,
I am so glad I do not follow ANYTHING on Social Media…..MF sites are my only ‘outlet’.
I do exchange photos and ‘stuff’ with family and close friends on Instagram ( not for public consumption–private) —trust me, it’s healthier. LOL.
“They” have nothing left. I do not fall into propaganda or indoctrination. Our ancestors came here to get away from totalitarian oppression—to be independent from the clutches of greedy political power—socialism is not progression ( as these un-American idealists see themselves) –but, rather, regression. I do not want my blood, sweat and tears to be a free for all feast!! Bunch of pirañas….
The pontification of socialism, fascisms, marxism and finally communism ( the squad-4) is for the ignorant radicals—for those who have no clue of American or global history. Their pugilistic behavior towards capitalism ( which has sustained this country; making it THE world-power) will sink us all. From ehence will all this free money be coming; I ask?!?!
I base my ideals on independent, educated, and indiscriminate thought. What makes the shenanigans more insulting is the fact that THEY are cognizant of their bullcaca. THEY are very well-aware that their not-so-tacit revolutionary behavior to basically eradicate the fundamentality of our demicracy’s integrity, is to deviously attract bees to honey. Unfortunately, the unfed mind capitulates. Educating oneself…..availing oneself of, and understanding the true meaning of democracy ( DEMOKRATIA) would open minds to colors never before seen.
Anyway…LOL….Liesl is one character I will always welcome—why is it that Sonny is a trusted citizen and Liesl is considered a creepy crawler under one’s shoe? I hope all the bizarre goings-on hit the roof, fall heaving on the ground and go S P L A T!!.
Also, I don’t know how much more of nuNina I can take. What’s with her eyes? Not human–
Ciao, bella!❤️❤️

Shay
Shay

Of course, I take your eloquently worded point, CeeCeeGirl! But having said that, given all the venom and hatred currently being spewed in the world—which we already have no choice but to ignore on a daily basis—we should be able to come here to escape such realities by exchanging pleasantries and soap chat without being rudely badgered for voicing our viewpoints! Furthermore, it would seem that 99.9% of posters are of that same mind when sharing their opinions, opposing or otherwise, since the interactions at this website have vastly improved and had been extremely civilized for quite some time, which has been ever so nice. I actually enjoyed mixing and mingling again! What I am saying is that simply stating one’s objections to a character or storyline should NOT be utilized as an excuse to unleash a highly-disproportionate, immutably toxic outburst of childish personal and political attacks. That’s totally out of line, and should not have to be tolerated or overlooked, especially when I said absolutely nothing untoward…..my thoughts were in response to another contributor who found Kim’s bizarre antics to be as purely disgusting and unacceptable as did I…As far as I’m concerned, there is no reason suitable enough to justify her irresponsible behavior as both a doctor and a human being. It was just plain alarming and wrong….for me, her appalling actions certainly did not constitute entertaining drama, and others also concurred with that notion. Honestly, that sorry escapade was the last straw for me with this character, as well…I never really welcomed “Dr. Zero,” as I still had less than fond memories of the same actress and her previous stint as Carly, where she’d similarly displayed those same strangely fragile, nervous, manic qualities. Just not my cup of tea, I guess…….particularly since so much about Kim’s backstory remained undefined and muddled…was Oscar even her real son??? That question was never satisfactorily answered, and was just another instance when GH introduced an umpteenth newbie, yet never bothered to fill in the huge holes of their persona. Color me completely over that practice of producing conveyor belt characters….this soap cannot even properly honor the past of the majority of its most enduring players (think the once-dynamic Anna who has been put through the emotional wringer and has come out of the experience a tortured shadow of her former self due to the most inexplicable yarn of childbearing that one could possibly imagine ….) but they continue to crank out more deeply colorless creatures whose lives stay blank slates long after they’ve debuted in Port Charles. What more can I say? Summer ennui has arrived on schedule…..I’m officially bored!!! Later, mia amica! Have a great weekend….

How wonderful would it be to see Melissa Archer and Michael Easton reunited again. Damn but he needs his fiery redhead! Agree with you on Anna and Finn. They’ve been propped by everyone and their mother in Port Charles. She is better suited with Robert.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Marianne,
Believe me, my friend…..I was such a huge fan of Anna and Alex on AMC—
When I started watching GH, I maintained my fondness for Anna…..
However, something transformed the character along the way….the writers, in my opinion, slowly but surely, they did a number on her.
She was no longer the keen, sniffing hound(ette) of yore, hell-bent on finding baddies.
It seemed as though being paired with Finn regressed her into girlish-mode…..her investigations became game-like, with Finn in tow. Too much for me to handle—Frustration-City!!
Furthermore—one of the most mis-matched couples on soaps. I prefer a little balance and a fun couple—this couple was dead on ‘arrival’.
The same could be said about Peter and Maxie. Why are they so boring?? LOL. ❤️

Agreed. No more Anna and Finn! Forced and propped by everyone and their Mom in Port Charles! Enough please.

didn’t the character say he was a teacher? so yeah, he’ll be around as the high school teacher for the teens. he looks good still, and Lulu was giving him those I’m tempted looks, something will happen for sure even if Dante comes back, Lulu will still resent Dante for leaving there for she will be tempted.

I doubt if Dom is ever returning, at least full time, so it’s time he’s written out permanently.

Hi, denisefan,
Was Brody Lovett heroic? My memory is a little fuzzy. I know he was a Navy Seal and was well accepted in Llanview—I remember he was involved with multiple females ( was busy for a little guy, LOL…..specifically, Gigi, Jessica and Natalie, if I’m not mistaken. ….. but didn’t he turn “bad” later.
I truly am stumped now. Maybe I’m getting him confused with someone else?

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

I think you have the right guy, Celia. Brody took a partial turn for the worse toward the end; I’m fuzzy on the details, but didn’t he keep the secret that the baby he thought was his son was actually what’s his name’s (the guy Michael Easton played) son? I say “partial” because Brody could never be really bad, and he did it because he had already lost at least one child and couldn’t bear to lose another one (again, I’m foggy on some of those details, too, but I have the broad lines of that right). He had a breakdown when the truth came out, pretty much everybody forgave him fairly quickly, and I think the finale sort of left us with hope that he and Jessica might eventually reunite, since thankfully the chandelier took out that dreadful Ford dude Jess was involved with.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Michael,
Thank you for replying, my friend. You brought it all back. Yes, that baby mess was the catalyst for Brody’s mental state.
Oh, my gosh…I had forgotten about Ford…..WOW!! How I miss that show…..and AMC…and AW….so much!!

Loved Mark on OLTL so I was happy to hear he was coming to GH. When I heard he was “going to be in town” I thought he’d make a great Lucky recast but, since they didn’t go in that direction, he might be an interesting pairing with Lulu. They definitely had chemistry on screen.

General Hospital

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
