It is not Duke in the body bag..
The person on the body bag has black hair..

The nurses ball will be fun…
I like watching the actors strut their talents (dancing, singing)

The ball is a GH tradition and luv that FV and RC revived it, its fun, good time entertainment 🙂

((wonder who is in the body bag / better not be Carlos… oh I think Ric is going to kill the fake Billy, the blackmailer))

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Or Jordan

I love the Nurses Ball, too-I always have. I remember watching it in the 90’s every year!

Timmm

People think its Duke but Anna will cover so he can go into hiding.

Helen Conboy

Ric’s blackmailer Creepy Guy Pete has blonde hair. Not him! It might be Carlos or Duke.

Helen Conboy
Helen Conboy

Not Ric’s blackmailer like I said he has blonde hair but maybe Duke or Carlos. It was so fast it almost looked like Jordan but think it’s Duke. Emma wouldn’t be at Jordan’s service.

Jeremy
Jeremy

yeah if u pause it, it is Duke’s body guard guy.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I think you may be right, Jeremy. It’s probably someone who is superfluous to the plot….as fake Jake or the bodyguard.

Helen Conboy
Helen Conboy

His name is Pete and his hair is blonde not black also Rick has no reason to kill him since the jig is out and he doesn’t have to pay him anymore money. It’s probably Duke. The scenes for the live shows have Emma at the funeral and Sam and Patrick are there so has to be Duke.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Duke’s killer is Ron Carlivati…lol

Timmm

I like Ron but your right, Duke never really got a story after he was he was unmasked, kind of.

Michael

The man can’t seem to get a break from the people that post on this page. I’m sure it is not an easy job writing for a large cast of characters and being able to satisfy everyone.

Fanny
Fanny

Jimh, Can’t believe U pegged it with Michael & Saabrinnnna….
Please don’t look into UR crystal ball and tell us they R the next
couple to tie the knot. 4 a while there I thought she’d take her
leave with Carlos, Wishful thinking I guess.

Shay
Shay

Beyond wishful, Fanny!!!! It has been my greatest desire to be rid of this insipid character since the first day Sappy darkened Port Charles’ doorstep! She is definitely at the top of my “must go” list….along with Phyllina, BrazenHayden, ValChops, Grossalie, Jordan, Alexis, Carlos, TJ and Ric! A spring housecleaning is definitely in order, and a Nurses’ Ball massacre would do the trick quite nicely!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Im getting rid of that crystal ball…its scarey…now with my latest correct prediction i believe that thing is the tool of the Devil…lol

CeeCee

That’s a good guess too, jimh. I thought I saw Ron ‘flash’ through the milieu. LOL.

CeeCee

@Shay.
I will play the mischievous imp…LOL. I watched the latest episode of CRIMINAL MINDS the other night. Guess who was the guest-star? Your favorite, Rosalie.!!!!!
Linda Elena Tovar was actually excellent. ……credible, emotional, perfect facial expressions…I was impressed. Really !!!!!!

Melissa
Melissa

I’m not interested in any of this since I don’t understand why they are sidelining their Outstanding Lead Actress this way during Sweeps yet again. She’s so criminally under-used, hah pun not intended.

But I just can’t get excited about GH until Ava comes back. It’s just not as interesting or compelling a show to me without her.

su0000
su0000

Maura is busy with another project, her choice..
She will return..

Melissa
Melissa

And you know this, how? That’s just rumors and spec. There’s been nothing reported to say this is true from an official source.

su0000

read tweets, Melissa.. all is let loose in tweeter.. lol

dmr

I just assumed it was part of her current storyline, being in hiding-didn’t realize that she was working on another project! Come back, Maura! I love her too!

Lou Piikes

I hope it’s that money grubbing sex crazed Hayden that get killed. There are plenty of people on the list as suspects.

dmr

I know; I don’t like the character and I’ve never really cared for the actress-while on AMC.

I like Hayden. I would rather see Snorbrina in that body bag!

I can’t stand Hayden either. Not thrilled with the actress. Cannot stand the character.

Genie Francis back to GH :):):):):):):):):):)

Eddie Maine is back!

Breaking news from TV Guide off Twitter, Genie Francis is returning to GH! Could it be during May sweeps?

Lawrence

The first week is just a ratings ploy. Then back to the usual bs until the live episodes. Then back toboring stories as usual for the summer

Don’t punish yourself by watching GH, it is not for you.. (its for us cool peoples)
Books are still popular .. Perhaps a good book is where you will find your joy 🙂

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

How many books do you read when Y&R are on and tv guide doesnt count…lol…you know i wuv to tease ya’…lol

CeeCee

Lol, Su. Some of us do both.

Timmm
Timmm

You were probably the kid who wanted to leave the circus after the clowns were done!

Christy
Christy

Wally Kurth (NED) is leaving for Days in May…. I hope they aren’t killing New off! It needs to be someone that doesn’t need to come back… Ned needs to show up now and then (the longer the better), but to kill off yet another Quartermaine, that would terrible!

Christy
Christy

that should have read “I hope they aren’t killing Ned off!”

CeeCee
CeeCee

No, not Ned! I love Ned…I love Justin, too….albeit he’s been a bad boy. LOL.
Do you think he’ll go back to Days for good?
I do hope, as yourself, Christy, that he will keep doing both shows, as usual.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I think it’s either fake Jake (as Su says), or Rick. It’s over for him now, isn’t it? I mean, Carly is already on to Rick….all she needs is verification from the patsy he hired.
There will be a showdown….at noon…LOL.
Seriously, there are so many who are targeted….Jordan, Duke, fake Jake, Rick; even Hayden, which I doubt. Someone could even, inadvertently, get caught in the maelstrom.

Fanny
Fanny

It could even be Valerie… Who gets caught in the crossfire.
Lulu would be pained for all of five minutes and then feel relief,
guilt and relief again. Unlike Dante who would truly be saddened.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Fanny.
Yeah, I suppose it could be Valerie. But, I think the fact that she moved to Wyndemere Is very telling. You know what I mean, Fanny? Why go through all that trouble if she was going to be killed off. I could go a step further and propose that Valerie was specifically ‘placed’ at the mansion as Nik’s new love interest. Hayden is a passing fancy….I doubt anything serious will come out of it, albeit they are hot together.
Speaking of Hayden, what a mess! It will soon be known that she is not Rosalie…’gotta’ see this! How will Nik explain himself? LOL.

I’m in Lulu’s corner, as far as Valerie is concerned. Imagine crashing in your relative’s one-room apartment!….Especially with a stranger….cousin or not, they are basically strangers….very awkward and uncomfortable.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

No Valerie and Nikolous…Vikolous would be ridicolous…lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

@jimh.
Lol. You’re right, Jimh…Vikolous sounds like a disease…!!

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I think there could very well be a Valerie and Nicholas; I thought that from the beginning.

Christy, I didn’t know Wally Kurth’s was leaving! HVe to read up on that. Love the actors and Ned’s one of my favorites. Hopefully he’ll be back soon…

su0000
su0000

Nik and Valerie will never be couple..
She is going to be bad one.. A shedevil for sure, wait for it 😉
Valerie = trouble..

her and Nik will never fit, she will most likely blackmail Nic after she finds out what he’s up to, that is why she was sent to the castle..

ohh I love love bad boy Nik.. hot and sexy too!

CeeCee
CeeCee

@su. I don’t know, Su. Nik came clean. As we saw in the pre-view, he told Liz Jake is Jason. So, Valerie can’t hold that over his head. I do not think Valerie is a baddie.
As far as gaining control of ELQ, I still believe he has something up his sleeve wit Sloane, yes…..but, for the greater good. JMO.

Helen Conboy

I’m sorry but it’s Duke. Fake has blonde hair. Like I said before there is a funeral o the live shows. A picture was shown of Emma Patrick Sam Dante and Lulu.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Helen.
You are so right. I overlooked the hair color. It must be Duke. We’re there not rumors of his leaving a while back?

It was great to see ABC running this promo during prime time while DWTS was on. I hope that Anna gets more screen time in May.

I miss Ava as well but she is no GHs only Leading lady that can act.

I love what Frank and Ron have done with the show they have to give Finola some screen time and material, she is being wasted in a supporting role.

I cant wait for the nurses ball!! I quit watching GH for a few years but I don’t fee like I have missed a thing. I grew up watching all the daytime soaps and my favorite s been GH. I have always loved Carly’s role in the show and her relationship with Jason and Sonny. I can’t wait for Jakes real identity to be revealed and I can’t wait for Hayden and Rick to be exposed I’m not really crazy about Jake being with Elizabeth but anyone is better than Hayden.

Alan
Alan

I think it is Pete the Jake Doe impersonator in the body bag and the suspects will be Ric, Hayden, Carly, Jake, and Nikolas.

Andrew

It seems as though the FakeJake (Pete) is the guy in the body bag –

nope.. look again..
person being zipped up in the body bag had black hair..(or dk brown)

CeeCee

Then, I hope it’s Rick…he has dark hair.

I think Duke is going to get killed, but you wouldn’t think that’d be a murder mystery, right? More like Mob fallout.

Sure Fake Jake could die, but he’s in NYC right now–why would he come back to PC? I don’t think they’d kill Hayden so soon, do you?

Brad?

jeremy

On GH soapZone Hayden aka Rebecca Budig leaving GH!!!

I liked her and Nick together. Her and Carly were great, as well. Why not trim the fat elsewhere! Michelle Stafford was a bust. Rebecca was hot!

CeeCee
CeeCee

I like both actresses…Michelle, much more. But, Rebecca IS hot. It just annoys me to no end how these great actresses are fucilated, flagellated and pulverized by these below-their-standards roles.
How does one pick them up, in one piece, after that? Case in point…Cady McClain in the role of Kelly.

Timmm
Timmm

Just goes to show you how important writers are. Michelle, who I love was great on Y&R and terrible on GH. She didnt forget how to act she just got handed a terrible character to play. Even she and Franco, which I hate as well, not Roger, just the character, had a thing brewing and its lost its momentum!

Rebecca1

I hope that’s true, Jeremy. Couldn’t stand her at hello…

Patrick

“Ellie” from Spinelli / Portland is so refreshing.. and a natural in front of the camera… it’s good to see her back ! what if a coulda woulda shoulda should happen with Nathan ! ? LOL… I could just see Ellie and Spinelli’ verbage about Nathan’ bod… and their outright exclamation and befuddle… loss of words I wish she would return full time… and, as intimated in the past… that she’s Tracy’ long lost daughter… wouldn’t this be an opportune time… for Jane Elliott.. to act with a natural actor… since it would seem AG is on his way “out” for awhile… hopefully long while I saw some spark of ole… in manned up Billy Miller…. w/Sloane…. had me scared and nervosa… LOL… as Sloane was riding Jake Doe to come up with the goods on Julian the one thing is how irksome LW’ Carly is BFF’ing it with “Jake” : when did all this chummy get to know each other laugh out loud trusting energy happen? I so hope… that GF’ Laura is not returning to “right” Nikolas Cassadine…. he’s near perfect with Hayden… let’s see some dark turns and intrigue with these two… this pairing happened so quickly and, for ,”all” the RIGHT reason…. fans alike must be salivating Tyler Christopher is the best thing thats happening in GH I was SO hoping… Ned was going to get ELQ back from Michael…. AND… that the switch of Michael allergy medication was found out so quickly… ( yes, i know… fans… are not in tune with this serious turn) it was laugh out loud stuff … hide his emmy so he’s kissing Sabrina… I like these two together… but not at Carlos expense… I watched Carlos scenes with Hayden and Jake… and it was all so easy for these actors to assimilate with and for the good of the show… nothing stilted or lacking… by any means… when you’re in a scene… WITH Carlos… I have liked him from the get Franco and Nina : GH writers should get Franco back to owning the magazine or newspaper… and Nina.. should get her inheritance back (they co-own)… and these two… with jobs… would be funny and in your face Port Charles… no stone unturned for these two “hated” citizens of … to smolder their winsome personality all over GH… everyone hates them right? report everyone… keep every one guarded… god… I love RH…. hmmmm : I really do like that Ned is taken with Olivia… it was romantic… dang! he’s a keeper… husband material… a couple to root for…. I dont’ care about Alexis and Julian… and that’s due to the writing of frigidaire Alexis keep Sam with Patrick… it didn’t cut any thing more… for any thing to progress with Jake and Sam… the magic is just not their… KM’ Sam is not the right person for Jake Ric Lansing… unfortunately… will be found out… Ric and Liz are electric… perhaps it’s Ric himself… I keep pushing for his… Read more »

It looks like Duke’s bodyguard Bruce in the body bag.

Good guess Walter.

Jerry

I honestly believe that the body being secured is that of Julian Jerome. Whether or not he will actually be dead however remains to be seen. This is unrelated but I need to put it out there — characters on GH who are either underused or simply useless. Nina Clay has great potential but has been reduced to playing Franco’s footnote

Jerry
Jerry

As I was saying before technology prematurely posted my comment, Nina is incessantly displayed as a woman functioning at a level no higher than a preteen. Regardless of her twenty year lack of adult development it’s time for her full utilization. It’s Michelle Stafford for goodness sake. Frank Valentini is daytime perfection, approving great storylines, properly applying show history and nostalgia, and maintaining a can’t miss conviction in audiences, but Lucas and Brad? An utterly boring couple. I realize that neither of the actors is under contract and both are rarely seen but here’s an opportunity to expose gay men as an equally feeling part of humanity and explore the complexities of an “unconventional” relationship. Take a beat from ‘DOOL’ — they’ve got a gay love triangle with more extensions than a Real Housewife. And finally, although further unrelated, Sam and Patrick just don’t seem lovable as a couple. ~

Timmm

Frank fumbled the ball with Michelle. I dont know how you revive her? Maybe get her away from Franco, get here money back and oh I just dont know!

CeeCee

I think I love you, Jerry. Finally…YEEESSSS!! Give Michelle Stafford the superlative storyline she soooo deserves. You said it, baby….”It’s Michelle Stafford, for goodness sake”. Those words are music to my ears.

It amazes me how competent Carly is to go to NY and track down “Fake Jake” and Dante cannot even write a traffic ticket! Secondly, why doesnt Ric go to Sonny and have Hayden and Pete removed?

su0000
su0000

Ric could easily ”remove” Hayden and Pete all by himself, he is not beneath doing that..
hey! Carly is a bloodhound, she sniffs ’em all out, it’s her talent aha!

I like Hayden and Pete! they are chaos makers .. heh 🙂

Timmm

Speaking of Pete, I think its funny that GH finds a ringer for Billy Miller who also can act but Y&R could only find Burgess Jenkins to take Billy’s place. Someone in casting at Y&R should be fired!

All well and good. But, I want to know when we will be seeing Michael Easton in May. His lack of air time recently has been ridiculous and unacceptable. He needs to be on the show more.

Anthony

I haven’t read all the comments but I hope it is Sonny or Carly or Morgan in the body bag – hate those characters. Their mean, vile doings never get punished. And when they do, someone gets a pardon….what B.S. Hated the mob stuff from the beginning (1990s).

Sonny went to prison, actually …. and he got beat up there lol 🙂

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

'Another World' Stars Set For Online Reunion

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
