This morning Soap Opera Digest broke the news that General Hosptial’s head scribe Bob Guza was on his way out at the number one ABC sudser, but now comes word from SOD that according to a GH spokesperson, Guza is NOT out and leaving the show.  ABC Soaps In Depth also learned through mutliple sources that Guza is not exiting the series. 

Many fans have been unhappy with the writing of General Hospital in recent years. So, could the powers-that-be been considering pulling the plug on Guza and starting fresh with a new leader?  We will keep you posted on this developing story.

Well, after this tragic and senseless story that is playing out right now with Jason and Elizabeth’s son, Jake, I won’t be shedding a tear with this GH decision.

I hope this is true because it would be one down and two to go!! I believe that Guza was forced to do some things because of Mr. Frons. Instead of stories flowing like they should, he was forced to write for characters that most of the viewers would rather not watch. Look at the ratings for the last couple of years. People left because of what I believe to be agenda dictated stories. Until agenda is forbidden at GH, it won’t matter whom is writing the stories.

I don’t for one second believe it was Guza with this Jake storyline. AMC sucks majorly, OLTL’s the only good one. Guza only affects GH. What the network SHOULD do is fire Frons.

My problem with Guza is he seems to have forgotten the issues of continuity and consistancy between character’s history and storyline. Right now., the characters and storylines are messed up and inconsistant. If the storylines are more consistant and complete, long time viewers may return.

I find it interesting that GH promotes its gotta watch moments, but then the actual script is so awful. Yesterday’s episode was nothing more than lead ins to moments that were not even filmed and we got told about later. And today, while I was involved with what was happening, I felt like the writer’s completely dropped the ball on what are gut wrenching storylines. I am super grateful that GH has such an extraordinary cast. For God’s sake! Use this magnificent cast and let everyone know that daytime serials are not dead.

Ok, now comes word Carly wants Sam to give Jason a son! Who did not see this one coming? So we have criminals having a baby, if you are not in Jason & Sonnys world you do not matter to this writing staff, after the scenes of Jakes death next week I will permantly dropped it from my DVR. Trying to force a pairing like Jason and Sam on us is too much why kill a child to do it. Liz an Jason had not shared a scene in how long?

Guza should have been gone long ago. The “Jake” story is the last straw for me, I can no longer watch this mess.

Killing off another Quartermaine and the potential for great storytelling for years ahead was very short sighted by the writers and PTB. In a year or so, Jake could have been aged enough to be a handful for Jason/Lucky and Liz and bound the Spencers, Webers and Quartermaines. The appeal of soaps is the families. GH has always had a mob or spy story, that makes it exciting. I’ve been a faithful viewer since day one. Killing off Jake has killed off my desire to continue to watch. Out of the blue Josyln has kidney cancer? Forget about it.

I would rather see Frons gone than Guza.

So, I started watching GH again 2 years ago, after dropping it when they started putting Jason and Elizabeth together. I could not stand those two! I have been really enjoying it. I can’t wait everyday to go home get my stuff done so I can climb in bed and watch GH!! I like the pace and although some of the storylines seem to be a retool of older plots I’m still really enjoying it! I can’t be the only one!!

GET RID OF GUZA!

Elsewhere, will Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) be hot on Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) trail and find out that she has been complicit in Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) kidnapping?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
