New mother to baby boy, Emerson Truett Saucedo, Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) returned this past week to the set of General Hospital, from her very short maternity!

Herbst started taping new scenes as Liz on September 16th, and according to Soap Opera Weekly, fans can expect her to appear on-air sometime in mid-October.  New son Emerson was born in August, and he joins his siblings, Ethan and Ella, and their proud pop, Michael Saucedo (Ex-Juan, GH) to form one fantastic, busy and bustling family!

Really? I think this is the best story in months. What would you prefer? That he sit and wait around pining for Elizabeth? Hahahahaha

What do you care what I prefer?

You do you, and I’ll do me, sound good?

I think the accents are painful, and the dialogue is worse, don’t agree, oh well.

Actually, I don’t really care what you think. I was just expressing my shock over it. If you confused that with caring, I guess that’s your problem. Get it?

I’m excited that Becky is coming back. I wonder how she will play into this new story for Lucky. I really like it so far. GH has been pretty unbearable to watch, but Lucky’s story really has me glued. Hopefully Elizabeth comes back with her head on straight.

Finally. It feels like she’s been gone forever. I love the name Emerson! I want this paternity revealed already so hopefully she’ll come back refreshed and ready to fight for Lucky. It would be cool if she went to Ireland to check up on him! His Irish accent is so hot. Love Elizabeth, love the Irish story, and can’t wait to see JJ and BH on screen together again.

So glad that the beautiful and talented Rebecca Herbst will be gracing our screens soon. I hope TPTB will stop punishing the viewers and let Steve & Becky share some scenes together. They have an amazing connecting and the chemistry between the two of them is awesome. Jason & Elizabeth is what GH is missing. Welcome Back Becky, we hope Mr. Guza has a good s/l waiting for you. One that shows your strengths as a good mother, a hardworker and one that can do without the brothers grimm.. We want a independent strong woman to emerge in Ms. Elizabeth… Read more »

Can not wait to see rebecca back on tv. I wish and hope that she and jonathan will have many scenes together. I love elizabeth and lucky together!!!
I have never seen a relationship on GH that wrapped me up so much into the characters and the storyline than the ORIGINAL Lucky & Elizabeth. Rape, Tragedy, Beauty, Romance, and Love is what brought these two together.

I LOVE REBECCA HERBST A GREAT ACTRESS! GLAD SHE IS BACK!

“Lucky & Elizabeth” back in the late 90’s were the definition of TRUE LOVE!

They will always and forever be remembered at that time as the most genuine, passionate, and romantic couple on GH of the 20th century!

PLEASE GH BRING BACK LIZ AND LUCKY TOGETHER AGAIN! WE MISS THEM!

LOVE Becky, she is my favorite on the show. I just wish we’d see Elizabeth more on the screen. She has so many amazing pairings, LL2 and Liason to name a few that are just off the charts. She has chemistry with everyone, and her character has so much history that the writers have failed to delve into. I’m hoping they finally give her something unique for her b/c Becky can rock anything. Can’t believe we are still sitting on another paternity reveal for her character. Having loved LL2 with Jon and Becky back in the day…I just can’t grasp… Read more »

I hope for a Liason reunion one day, but I loved LL2 first..they have SO MUCH HISTORY. With Jonathan back the original permanent lock is complete and its time for the next chapter in their lovestory. Laura needs to come back, as do stories for these families. Tom has never returned to PC, what an amazing story for Becky that would be! Helena has yet to reveal Aiden’s true paternity. She needs to start painting again, maybe go back to medical school and become a doctor…anything..she’s a HARDY/Webber for crying out loud!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Family Says Their Goodbyes in Emotional Episode Filled With Touching Performances

For anyone who has been watching the emotional Alzheimer’s storyline play out on General Hospital, Wednesday’s episode was a key moment in the storytelling and for the Corinthos family.  To say that the cast delivered in this episode is an understatement; everyone had their moments, and of course, chief among them, Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Mike’s (Max Gail) life is coming to an end as his body is shutting down from the disease.  Stella (Vernee Watson) comes to Mike’s room at Turning Woods and tells Sonny that Mike is waiting for permission to let go.  She explains to Sonny that Mike is torn between this world and the afterlife.   Stella helps Sonny prepare for the final moments of Mike’s life, dimming the lights, giving Sonny ice chips to put on his father’s lips, and for Sonny to put on some of Mike’s favorite music – jazz.   She also gets Mike a blanket because he is getting cold.  Then in a touching moment played to perfection by Vernee Watson, Stella says her own goodbye to Mike and hugs Sonny and tells him how grateful she was to know Mike.

Carly (Laura Wright) had been by Sonny’s side every step of the way in the final days of Mike’s life.  At one point in Mike’s room with Sonny, she has a dream where Mike tells her she is his daughter.  It was another heartbreaking moment – this time played beautifully by Laura Wright.  Earlier, Michael (Chad Duell) said goodbye to his grandfather and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) had also come to Turning Woods, as has Brando (Johnny Wactor) to be there for the end of Mike’s life and to support Sonny

Sonny tells Mike, (who can hear, but cannot truly respond as the disease continues to shut down his body), that he has made peace with what went down between them when he was a child.  He tells Mike, “I just want you to go in peace and go with love.”  Later, Sonny had a recollection seeing his father pray in the back of the church when he was a child, which sparked an idea for him.   Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny know that Mike wants to be forgiven for his sins.

Then in the tearjerker, Father Ramos arrives to bless Mike and cleanse him from all of his sins, as Sonny, Carly, Michael and Josslyn witness it.

Afterwards, Jason realizes that Mike probably does not want to die in front of Sonny and tells Sonny to take a break, but Sonny does not want to – so Jason whispers to Mike that he should not worry that he will take care of Sonny. The two hope Mike will meet up with Morgan in heaven.

At the end of the episode, alone with his father, Sonny tells Mike not to be afraid, or to worry about him, and then remembers the night Mike walked out on him and his mother when he was a kid.  He says he knows his father always loved him … maybe too much.  We fade to black.  Maurice Benard’s work was again outstanding throughout these moments, making Sonny’s life-long pain, and love for this father, palpable.

As someone who went through this horrible disease with his mother, I can say, that GH played the beats of the story to perfection, honoring those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and the family members they leave behind.

So, what did you think of this emotional episode of GH and the performances by the cast? Comment below.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Let’s just make this official as we tweeted about it last week when these scenes aired on Tuesday.  And let’s just say, that Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) could very well receive another Daytime Emmy nomination next year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, if these moments are part of her reel.  LoCicero was previously nominated in 2015 in this category.

Now on to that performance that had everyone a-buzz on social media after it aired.  In the scenes, Robert (Tristan Rogers) has worked his WSB contacts to get Olivia to Geneva to secretly see her son, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), who is suffering from severe trauma and PTSD and is at this facility for treatment.  After traveling half way around the world to get there, with anticipation and wanting to hold her son and be there for him – when she arrives the doctor (Christopher Cousins) tells Dante his mother is here to see him, but Dante refuses to let that happen.

When the doctor tells Olivia that Dante will not open the door to his room to talk to his mom and come face-to-face with her, she goes into momma bear mode, releasing such heartache and anguish, just wanting to see Dante, but she is met with a steely shut door instead.  But as viewers saw, the scenes were made all the more poignant by the split screen; where Dante is on the other side of the door – heartbroken hearing his mother’s cries.  Dominic Zamprogna, who is always stellar, was also moving in these moments.

However, it was LoCicero’s ability to call up such deep rooted love and pain for her child, that any parent could relate to, which broke our hearts, rang so true, and showcased Lisa.

Later in the week, we also see how Liv was there for Robert in return  – and the two are now off on a mission of their own to find Holly (if she is indeed very much alive) which is sure to put a further wedge in her marriage to Ned (Wally Kurth).  That begs the questions, too.  How would you feel about a Robert and Olivia pairing…or would you be rooting for Olivia and Ned to work through their issues?

Through it all, it was Lisa LoCicero who grabbed our attention, brought out the hankies for all of us, and truly compelled the audience.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Lisa’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Lisa in these scenes with Dominic? In case you missed them, you can check them out below, then share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt is the New Chief of Staff; But Who is the New Head Nurse?

On Friday’s General Hospital, the staff at the hospital was in for a shock when none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) waltzed in and announced that she was in the new Chief of Staff.  That left Finn (Michael Easton), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) and Portia (Brook Kerr) reeling.

Apparently, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) believes in Britt, and since he is now running the hospital and already pink-slipped Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), putting someone with a sketchy past in that position, who might do his bidding for him, was the perfect move for the drug lord.

Britt tells the crew that she is horrified by the mismanagement that has been happening at GH.  She then tells Elizabeth and Epiphany to check their new schedules as outlined by the new head nurse.  When everyone fires back at Britt that Epiphany is the head nurse, Britt reveals that it is Cyrus’ decision since he is now Chairman of the Board at GH.

Then, in a shocking moment for each of them, Elizabeth finds out that Epiphany has been put into an administrative position, where she will not be with the patients, while Liz has been cut back to only two shifts a week demoted to the satellite crew.

Finn is also in hot water as Britt tells him they need to set up a meeting, while Portia’s fate seems to be that she is safe, when Britt says she believes in her, and so too, does Cyrus.

What did you think of Britt arriving on the scene as the new Chief of Staff?  Who do you think might be GH’s new head nurse? Share your thoughts on the staffing changes via the comment section below.
