PLL: The Perfectionists Canceled By Freeform; Could Emmy Winner Hayley Erin Return To GH?

After recently making a guest-star appearance and a brief return to her old stomping grounds at General Hospital, Daytime Emmy winner Hayley Erin’s primetime series, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists has been canceled by Freeform after only one season.

As GH fans know, Erin came back as the vision of Kiki in key scenes with her on-screen mother Ava Jerome (Maura West).  That episode aired on August 22nd. And earlier this year in late April, Erin won the Daytime Emmy for her work for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.

Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter on the cancellation of PLL: The Perfectionists; which was a spinoff of the hit Pretty Little Liars series which aired for seven seasons, never found the audience that made Pretty Little Liars a breakout.

The new version which along with Erin starred: Sofia Carson, Sydney Park, Eli Brown, Graeme Thomas King, Kelly Rutherford and centered around  series leads: Alison DiLaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal, averaged under 600,000 viewers after a week of delayed viewing; while the original series pulled in over 2 million per episode.

Now the question remains: would GH consider bringing the popular Erin back to Port Charles as a new character? A Kiki doppelgänger?  GH fans know that Kiki was brutally murdered by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and then her body identified in the memorable and emotional scene where Ava unzips the body bag containing Kiki.    Anything can happen in daytime though, right?

Maybe she can come back to y n r as the first adult Abby
Current Abby is not cutting it as the legacy character of Ashley Abbott and Victor Newmans daughter
Abby should be making power moves as a dbl agent for Newman and Jabot with the other bastard newman child Adam . Not opening restaurants with conartist Chelsea and Phyliss
Every love intrest she pairs with gets fired. Geez. Quickly pair Nate with Mishael Morgans new character!!

Best idea ever about her returning to Y&r as Abby! Would love that

Yes I think she is a terrific actress. I wish there was a clever way they could have her return as Kiki. They’ve done it before with other dead people

Resurrect Kiki.

Oh Lord, please no! Kiki needs to stay dead.

I wish!! “Calling Dr Rolf ….calling Dr Rolf…..”. There is always a method to resurrecting characters—it’s a soap.
By the same token, I like Damien’s idea,as well. We need a nuAbby—-this one has run her course, as far as I’m concerned. Abby needs vibrancy ; excitement—-qualities in which Abby should invest. So far, she seems to be getting into the same foreseeable predicament . Same old, same old—someone always coming to her rescue. Give the girl a life!! Set her table—-
I think Erin would bring a youthful and bright spin to such a dull, mediocre role.

she played a teenage Abby before Emme Rylan. Hard to beieve Lulu and Kiki both played Abby.

No more twins and doppelgangers and back from the dead. It lessens the emotional impact. Days of our Lives is just absurd right now. Its at the point where characters dont even bat an eyelash when someone from the dead returns. It almost felt like overkill when Adam and Chloe came back from the dead so close together on Y and R. At least characters acted appropriately, and commented on how strange it was. Hayler could play any new character. I would welcome her return. She grew phenomenally…into an Emmy winning actress!

Celia

That’s right, Colin!! I had completely forgotten Hayley was the original Abby, as a tween. As yourself, I would take her back as Abby, without batting an eyelash!!
I had reached such a place of contentment ( HaHa)!where Days is concerned, that these obtuse developments sort of breezed by me.
Absurd is a perfect description—so disappointing!! It’s an alternate world, at this point—amazing how Jack falls on his head and voila’…. miraculously, his memories are restored.
Then there’s GH. Doing her job or not, shouldn’t Jordan be happy to rid the town of Shiloh? Hmmmm. So, she arrests Sam for murder? Why? To give Sam more air time? To keep the character relevant?
Oh….yeah…Kim. The woman belongs in a mental facility. She’s a goner!!
I know it’s a soap, but golly gee, little Donna looks three months old. A newborn’s eyes do not focus on any given object. He/she can barely keep his/her eyes.
Thank goodness for C-sections, LOL. Only a cow ( literally) could give birth to such a huge baby. Seriously!!!! A modicum of reality goes a long way…

I d love to see her back. But not as KIKI OR A SISTER OF KIKI every one has a double in the world. Brand new character for ERIN

I don’t think KK should come back as a look-alike or return from the dead. I think that story is over. I love the character but she’s dead for real. One less dead person to come back as something else. I think Michael E knight will be a Cassadine LOL and I would love to see that. I can’t wait for him to be on the show. I think GH needs to pull the one life to live and all my children people into storylines as most of the viewers are very familiar with the actors. I think we should leave newbies alone at this point.

Yes please bring Kiki back. I miss her.

Would it be crazy for Hayley Erin to come back as another character….Possibly Star Manning? In my humble opinion, it would be a great twist. =)

Kim

I think she needs to come back as Kiki’s twin sister and I also think that she should be Nina’s real daughter. When Nina gave birth her mother separated them and sold them individually.

Please don’t! GH does not need a Kiki reboot. There are many more interesting characters on the canvas that I’d like to see. And while I’d like to see Mara West get a story line worthy of her talents, retreading her relationship with Kiki (however they’d make that happen) would be FF material for me.

Sorry PLL: The Perfectionist was cancelled. I liked it.

The character of Kiki never had any valid reason to exist in the first place. The whole thing started as a legal loophole to recover from the idiotic idea of merging OLTL into General Hospital, where “Kiki” was just a rebranded StarTwit.

Hayley certainly played the part better than the original untalented Disney princess did, but the character was brutally murdered, her ridiculous mother has whined about her death constantly for nearly a year, and nothing short of Dr. Rolf’s zombie serum could excuse her suddenly being up and walking around again. And this is Port Charles, not Salem, so Rolfie doesn’t have any jurisdiction here.

Best of luck to Hayley in her future acting endeavors, but there’s absolutely no point in resurrecting a garbage character.

I hope. Maybe she had a twin? Maybe she changes her look and is Nina’s daughter BUT Stafford is gone and the NuNina looks nothing like Erin.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
