I wanted to comment on Becky Herbst- I am very angry as a fan that they let her go, and I also tune in for her and probably won’t be tuning back in, as far as the other 40 actors, some I do like some I do not, for me it is the stories. I am just not interested anymore, Becky/ Liz was like the last thread holding me on. So in essence you are right something is wrong and it is with the writing and whoever is making these bad decisions. If they want this show to succeed, they… Read more »

I got to tell you…I love Melissa Archer! She is such a sweetheart and a wonderful actress. I know Susan Haskell is a great actress too but I really think that Melissa deserves to get an emmy consideration this year. She has done fabulous work this past year, especially in her scenes with Susan and Michael.

Another fun podcast! Thanks Michael, Carolyn and Dillion! Loved the interviews with Melissa and Chad the most. It is always great to hear about the news and from your perspectives. GH is my favorite soap and yes… I am terribly saddened about Becky Herbst leaving, and there are issues with them writing out the core characters and older characters. However there are so many talented people on that show whith some stellar performances that I agree with Carolyn’s perspective. Becky will get on another show and will make that show very successful. Chad’s performances this week have been so fabulous… Read more »

Hey, Michael. This was another fun pod cast. I can always count on Carolyn to drop her subtle remarks and she is so sharp, plus talented in so many ways…her writing,etc. a very creative person. I thought your guests this month were just perfect. It was especially great to hear from A.Martinez,and to hear he will be back on B&B and as a doctor. I’m thinking maybe the Nick and Stephanie lung cancer story. Whatever it is he is welcome addition. Melissa is such a pretty girl and a terrific actress and I hope she gets an Emmy one day,… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
