The Partridge Family mama, Shirley Jones has already taped her appearance on General Hospital, as had been previously announced.   When news circulated that Jones was making a guest stop in Port Charles, fans began speculating that Shirley would play a character perhaps in the Silas mystery storyline!

But today, according to an item from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, some new scoop has emerged at what the legendary Jones is doing on the 50-year-old soap opera!

Shirley will play the role of Mrs. McClain, “a lonely widow who sees something strange and disconcerting while visiting her husband’s grave.”  Mrs. McLain “comes across a suspicious gravedigger late one night at the cemetery and takes her suspicions to Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) at the PCPD, thinking this might have something to do with the fugitive the police are looking for.”

So this begs the question, will Mrs. Partridge err McClain be the key to solving where on earth is Carly (Laura Wright) thanks to loony tunes Heather Webber (Robin Mattson)?   Jones appears on the February 5th episode of the ABC soap opera!

What do you think of the role Shirley is playing on GH?  Last time Jones visited the world of daytime soaps, she played Collen Brady on Days of our Lives.

Heather most likely buried Carly(alive) in the same gravesite where Franco put Heather! Thought S.J. would be Ninas mother…how about Erika Slezak and Jerry ver Dorn guest staring as Nina’s parents then? (commenters be sure to get flu shot…i didnt and its horrible…one min. im fine and the next im misreable…ugh!!!)

Laura Wright must be on vacation if she’s going to be off screen for so long! Wish that meant less of Franco, but I’m afraid it means we’ll see more of him as he’s accused of her murder. I can do without the hysterical Michael screaming and yelling and accusing!

I love how RC gives us mystery writing, at times..
In an interview, RC once said;
His reading as a young man and I’d guess to date was mystery novels..
He mentioned Agatha Christie as a favorite ..
RC’s fav TV Show is Scandal ..

It somewhat shows in his writing.. in my opinion.

Nice to see Shirley Jones, however, it means that the Carly disappearing story will continue longer than hoped for. So boring. Heather is beyond ridiculous at this point.

Great to hear Carly will be gone a while (and hopefully Franco, too). Can’t wait to see Shirley Jones and I hope this is a recurring role.

So then she’s NOT going to be “Dusty Walker’s” mom….Wonder if she will have any future scenes with Anthony Geary? Would be the second time around for them, as he once played Laurie’s beau on the PF, and as a minister, no less!!!! (Too funny….) Speaking of the show, such sad news about Dave Madden…..R.I.P. Reuben Kincaid!!!

So…they can’t find the money to keep Genie Francis or Tristan Rogers. But there’s a few bucks for big ol Shirl. Neat.

Well we know Carly wasn’t buried and Luke just came upon Carly in the boathouse and in preview of Monday episode, she tells Luke that Heather kidnapped her.

Another bait and switch, Re-Ron does it again. next up Donna Mills. As someone else said. We can’t keep Genie or Tristan, but we get loads of OLTL on contract no less. I find myself watching less and less. I get the feeling Re-Ron is getting even with ABC for cancelling OLTL by turning it into OLTL2 Plus call it what you will, Franco is Todd even up to the make him a hero save kids and carley be a hero everyone forgets he was a serial killer, torturer. YUCK.

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.
