Did anyone notice that when Robin was talking to Carly on the show,when she called Carly by her real name instead of Carly,Carly busted out laughing.

I just hope that Y&R will (wisely) SORAS (when the time is right) little Katie and cast Brooklyn in the role.

WOW what a way to reunite Jason and Brooklyn! That would be great!

A well-known soap journalist has already posted an article urging JFP to do this! That would be a coup for Y&R, and a real blow to GH.

I just watched the episode I thought it was well done with the time constraints that they had the flashbacks were a nice touch.

The flashbacks were terrific!

The flashbacks were the best part of it. Also loved the vows to Emma. Otherwise it was so brief and oddly edited with weird jumps to the Laura/Tracy/Nik/Hayden scenes. Robin had hardly any face time with Mac and Robert. Why? Poor Felicia got to say nothing. Why did they make Maxie “forget” the minister and the rings? That’s not like Maxie, the Super Wedding Planner. They could have simply said that she planned, with Mac, for Mac to get ordained online. That would have been a nice touch. Also, feel like Epiphany should gave been a wedding guest. She’s been… Read more »

Loved the flashbacks–wistful–to think we saw none of another legacy couple–throwing some shade at Tony Geary’s “misconduct.”

Where is Robert Scorpio?

I guess Robert must have taken the picture. Love the picture…yes, BRAVI and KUDOS but, shouldn’t have Tristan been included in the Scorpio-Drake family picture?

Timmm

He barely said goodbye to Robin. Odd.

I mean, in the picture? Shouldn’t Robert, the father, have been included in the picture?

Jason Thompson’s scene partners were primarily Kimberly, Brooklyn, and Finola (not including “non-family” members like Liz or Sam). He barely had any scenes with Tristan Rogers over the years, esp. since Tristan has barely been on the show over the years, sadly for us Robert Scorpio fans.

CeeCee

Well, Jake R. With all due respect, the ‘heading’ specifies, “Jason Thompson posts Scorpio-Drake family photo”. FAMILY photo. Robert Scorpio is, indeed, the Scorpio patriarch . Without him there would not have been Robin Scorpio. It makes no difference how long or how often Tristan has had contact with Jason. We are talking about the characters, not personal friendships. If it was not Jason’s intention to include Tristan, as Robert, then the wording should not have included ‘Scorpio-Drake family’, either. I am strictly talking about that….difference of opinion, I guess. Have a good day.

My sentiments exactly. Why no Robert in the pic.

Despite the title of the photo, the comment seems to reflect the professional relationships of the actors – and Robert just wasn’t in that sphere as often, unfortunately. I don’t think it was meant to slight him; just an actor’s photo of those closest on the set in his storylines & keeping it “all in the family.” Makes sense to me 🙂

Very sad Patrick, Robin and Emma will be missed. But, at least you can watch Patrick on Young & Restless. My very best to Patrick.

Just started recording Y&R since so many of my favorite soap actors have been cast there. I feel like I know the rudimentary back stories on most of the characters since I read the soap mags. Shouldn’t be too hard to catch up hopefully. Enjoying the show so far, though never liked those show runners when they were at GH.

I certainly hope we will see this family again. At least Kmberly and Brooklyn visiting. It sounds like definitely Brooklyn will visit.

Will truly miss Patrick,Robin, and Emma Drake. They were the ultimate supercouple of GH and were the reason I watched GH since they got together back in 2005. Can’t wait to see JT on Y & R it should be interesting. Hopefully when the timing is right for Robin,Patrick,& Emma to return to GH for a future storyline they could convince Y& R to let JT come back as Patrick even on a recurring basis. That would make the scrubs fans really happy . Wish they could have gotten Rick Springfield to come back for Jason and Kimberly’s final sendoff… Read more »

Thank your lucky stars Scrub Fans that these characters were not on Days, otherwise instead of a happy family reunion that leaves the door open for a return some day, they would have all died in a plane crash on the way to California —- so grateful for a happy ending for a change– it was cheesy and predictable but at least it ended on positive note — for now anyhow.

Well first, it was amazing to see Robert, Anna, Robin, Patrick, Emma, Mac and Felicia in the same room. It has got to be years since all the Scorpios have gathered at the same time. Now we only get to see Anna and maybe a little of Mac and there they go! Sad but happy to see them all together again. It was also nice to see Carly and Robin hug it out! They have a checkered history with lots of finger pointing but like Robin said today, she loves Sonny and Carly is good for Jason and those two… Read more »

I did think of her when I was thinking of Mac and Felicia but Maxie doesnt really have a strong connection to Robert and Anna.

Anna is Maxie’s godmother; this is a relationship that should be more often acknowledged.

What I loved was the genuine emotion we saw from all of the actors in the wedding scenes. You can tell that JT, KMc and BS will all be missed, and how much they will miss GH. These are the moments I live for on a soap and they’re very rare. It was a beautiful wedding and the right way to send off the Scorpio-Drakes. Well done, GH, and all the best to the three actors as they leave GH for greener pastures.

At least Patrick and Robin, with Emma in tow, got married again for the scrub fans, and the emphasis was all on them. But the rest of the wedding party seemed like window dressing except for a couple of wrap-up conversations between Robin, Carly, Liz, and Jason. I realize it was short notice, but no music, laughter, festivity to speak of…Maxie where were you? Robert barely had a line, looked like he was on a lunch break from Y&R, and only one daddy/daughter hug…sorta…and then folded chairs and pulled a luggage piece outside. Felicia warmed a seat…that was all. Nothing… Read more »

this is one of the best episodes i have seen in a very long time – it was so nice to see the scorpio brothers together & also great to finally see felicia – it was so sad to see the drake family walk off the screen for the last time but i am thrilled they got their happy ever after because after all they went thru they totally deserved it…………

The thing I like most about this interview is that young Brooklyn obviously does not have a psycho stage mom like Kris Kardashian! Brooklyn said that she is only allowed to watch Jason’s scenes on Y & R. She also said she doesnt have social media. It is very nice and rewarding to hear of a child being protected and loved rather than profited from and exploited!

I really thought the whole wedding thing was so fast without planning didn’t give it much of a wedding affect. More like a get together. Who ever said Robert was excluded from family photo was totally correct. Robert definitely should have been in that photo. Don’t understand why he was not included. Epaniphy should have been there for Drake Jr. It was nice but so unorganized. Needed much more planning and togetherness. Will miss little Brooklyn such a great little actress. Not much reason to watch anymore. Can’t wait to see how he does as Billy Abbott. Really liked Billy… Read more »

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
