This Week On General Hospital: Will Franco Get Shot? Or, Will Someone Else Take The Hit?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Franco’s return in the form of Roger Howarth has twisted the citizens of Port Charles on General Hospital in quite the revengeful way!

So much so, that they are willing to shoot him dead! But who will do it? Sonny, Carly, Shawn, Sam? And, will Franco really get shot? Doesn’t seem like it from this ABC promo which relates that things take a tragic turn and then Shawn very upset slumping to the floor stating, “What have I done?”

Watch this week’s ABC promo of General Hospital after the jump! Then, let us know now what you think of Roger Howarth as Franco, and are you seeing it propel story forward?  Do you think this week’s event will give fans some excitement after many have related they have not been so happy with recent episodes?

If Franco gets shot- what’s Roger Howarth going to do then? Off the show or come back as a THIRD character?

There is NO actor in the world who could make the character of Franco acceptable to me. All the whitewashing being done is wasted — just as this character should be. I want him gone…NOW!

I think he can be partly redeemed (and still be a bad guy. We need a real bad guy on GH). He’ll do a few good things, still be scary and psycho, and hopefully we can all love him for it. After all, Todd at first, not a nice or good guy. Same with Luke. So, after he doesn’t get shot, I’m still for giving him a chance!

Please God don’t let this travesty continue. Let them blow his brains out . But I know RC and FV cannot let their pets go no matter how much they run GH into the ground. We MUST have our priorities !

Franco is awesome!!
If you pay attention Franco has been suspected of killings but he was never proven to be the killer, now or in the past of being a serial killer.
I think he killed maybe 2 or 3 people that were actually known to be killed by him
he was a kidnapper , not a killer..
Franco is going to have many fans 🙂

GMAB He Only killed 2 or three people????? If he ONLY killed 2 or three people he is a killer to me and being a kidnapper is not much better. How would you or anyone like a loved one or a child of theirs to be kidnapped by that bastard. I dont like the franco character never did and i am not alone. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Roger Howarth but i think it was a BIG BIG mistake to bring him on as Franco of all people. I dont find and never did find the franco character entertaining and that… Read more »

The Franco character by RH, is really great!!
It is shaking up PC and once again GH is full of high octane excitement!!
RH and Franco, this new Franco, are made for each other.
I really like this Franco..
I leave the past behind where it belongs, in the past..
A soap opera is stories for entertainment and I am being entertained by
Franco and all the new stories!!!
{{{{{{ I’m a New Franco fan!! }}}}}}}

I hope Shawn shoots RORH. dead. Franco is scum, and if frankenRon can’t let the OL characters go why don’t they just go back there. I do not want to watch the Todd smirk and see everyone cow tow to him the way they did to Sonny and Jason. I’M holding out for a hero, a real one not some whitwashed jerk, who did so many evil things most people were cheering when Jason shot him. I think that was the only time I rooted for Jason. hated him but when they got rid of Franco I was happy. We… Read more »

So Jason..the hitman, thug, mob enforcer who said once that ‘killing is the only thing I was ever good at” — who did the bidding of one Sonny Corinthos without question, beat people up, blackmailed, and engaged in numerous other criminal activitieis — that guy was a hero, then?

Yeah, no whitewashing there at all.

maybe Diane gets shot… or one of Alexis family (returning for Rafe’s guardian hearing results). That would be very upsetting to Shaun.

I do not think Franco will get shot. They didn’t go thru all this trouble of getting Roger in that new role to have him murdered right away.

Marcia
Guest

They won’t shoot Franco, he just started this role. Maybe it will be Molly or Alexis that gets in the line of fire instead.

That way itll cause Shaun regrets and problems in his relationship with Alexis thats been pretty boring.

It will be either Alexis or Olivia

I really like RH… and would loved to have seen him play anyone but Franco!!! Unfortunately they will not kill off the Franco character… as much as we wish! He deserves someone like Brit… hope they meet and she is intriqued by him. Has anyone noticed all of a sudden we have a plethera of mean…nasty… and annoying characters? We have Franco, Brit, Felix’s sister, Brad, Kiki, and Silas Clay. Every time we turn around someone is being mean or nasty or just plain annoying. It’s getting a bit much!

I loved Todd and Carly, they were a perfect match. I can’t imagine a scenario where Franko redeems himself, and I completely love the misguided bad guy/ good guy that RH played so well. Carly needs a new love she can truly go toe to toe with. Franko is story line I was never fond of, but the real Franko did it well. I have a hard time adjusting to recasting anyway, this just feels wrong.

I RC is great. I think Todd as Franco is okay for now, they need to change him too a different person let’s face it no one can play Franco like James Franco. he was the best. I thought the way they did Todd’s hair he was going to be Jason. but no one can play Jason as well as Steve himself. but we all have to move on I still think a replacement for Jason will help GH ratings, because we never finished the whole story line we had no happy ending. well Sam had no happy ending I… Read more »

I agree. And saying an actor ‘belongs’ on any show over another is patently ridiculous. Actors want to play characters. They can choose to go where they want in order to do so.

I’m guessing either Connie or Olivia will get shot but if I could wish it would be Rafe

Tristan
Guest

Down below I suggested Luke or Anna, but I hadn’t yet seen the whole week’s episodes. Having seen them, I now think Olivia will be the victim. She is going to push herself into Franco’s face again — like she did on Friday — just as Shawn is pulling the shot. It was set up, also, that she is apparently Connie’s ONLY source of support and stability, you know, with all those memories of what Olivia had done for lil’ cousin Connie, like working weekends to buy Connie a purse for her birthday. A purse that, it was conveniently mentioned,… Read more »

GH is heating up for summer! I’m all kinds of excited for this new Franc-Q storyline for Roger! Watching the reactions of PtCharles citizens and how this affects everyone has been great. GH took a big gamble with this, and for me it’s working. As to who gets shot…. I’m guessing maybe Olivia but I have no idea.

I like Roger but frankly not Franco. I also thought bringing back the 3 actors as 3 different characters on the same day was a terrible idea. Too much.

I have mixed feelings. My first is I’m a huge James Franco fan and I thought he was incredibly entertaining in his mad, diabolical portrayal of Franco. I also happen to think he’s gorgeous but that’s beside the point! As for Roger as Franco…after I get past my disappointment that James didn’t return in the role…I think Roger is doing a fantastic job. He’s hilarious…he makes hating him fun…and yet there’s always something likeable in the characters he portrays. And oh please…with everyone complaining how horrible Franco was/is… MOST ALL the characters started off evil: Luke a rapist Sonny a… Read more »

The show did go downhill after the nurses ball but with RH as Franco combined with the bickering Quartimaines is making the show fun to watch again. They still need to show more Anna, Duke, Laura, Scotty and Leslie. I like to think Laura and Scotty went on their honeymoon but wheres Leslie…she go with them? I like to see a scene where Monica is at Ricks grave and Leslie shows up.

rebecca
Guest

It’s weird…the vets are almost part of a different show for me. I’ve been watching for years…and I LOVED that so many came back. But Anna and Duke? Not the same. When they first brought Anna back she had a lot of air time; great chemistry with Patrick, Emma, Luke…but though I’d love to see her and Duke together, dunno know. Just something’s missing. Perhaps it’s air time! LOL…They just dropped the ball on that. Where IS Duke??? Love Laura and Scot. I actually like him; always have. I think he’s funny/charming/endearing/goofy/sincere…and genuine in his way. And I love the… Read more »

Thanks for reply…i havent seen Lucy so long i almost 4got about her. And what about Mac and Felicia…shouldnt they be planning their wedding? It does seem like 2 soaps…GH: The Next Generation when the show Sabrina, Felix, and Brett! Then when and if they show the vets its the GH i remember! I do like the newbies but RC needs to show more of the vets that got us hooked in the first place. All soaps need to connect newbies with the vets more…it makes them more acceptable to most fans.

LOL…spelling is fine…. You’re right…they do need to connect the vets with the newbies. That’s where the disconnect is. It’s not young vs old in terms of age…they just haven’t found a way to incorporate them on to the canvas together. It’s like they start something, ala Duke and Anna, Felicia and Mac, Robert’s coma, Lucy back in town…even the tease that Caleb is still alive when he walked out of the autopsy room…and then they just drop em! No mention…for weeks! I guess it’s to their credit that I like ALL the stories they’re doing so I seem to… Read more »

I think id like to see Josh Taylor leave Days and join GH as the new Jeff Webber…it would be nice to see Monicas ex back in PC. Then Monica could have renewed feelings for Jeff after he saves A.J.s life if A.J. had been the one shot but Jeff has feelings now for his ex sister in law Leslie!

Obviously Franco will be the bone marrow donor for Danny and that’s how they will redeem him so RH can remain on the show.

Franco’s arc may not be about redemption. At least not right now.

Not Kiki, I don’t think, because this is being hyped as a tragedy, and she isn’t yet tied to everyone in PC. I also don’t think it will be Connie or Olivia; not enough “weight” to them for it to be billed as a tragedy that affects the WHOLE town. Two possibles, because it would affect EVERYONE in PC: Anna or Luke. If Luke, it will especially be a blow to Carly, as he is her uncle, and she PUSHED for the hit to happen. As Sonny told her, if you go this route, it will be with you for… Read more »

Another reason I am leaning toward Luke as the victim. Ever since the “kiss,” after which Luke and Laura called it quits, Luke has turned back to drinking. He isn’t drinking because he lost his daughter. With Luke it is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS about Laura. She grounds him in decency and reality. He has quietly fallen apart since she married Scotty. And the ONLY person in PC who gets this is Tracy. She knows. I know lot of viewers seem to have “turned” on Luke, and on Tony Geary, but Tony’s subtle take on Luke’s slow decline, his loss of… Read more »

Tristan
Guest

Well, according to a spolier from another site, Tracy catches Luke drinking, so he isn’t the victim. I guess whomever it is must really die. Can’t for the life of me think who. Not Spinelli, is it, since the actor is no longer “on contract”?

Tristan, couldn’t agree with you more re Luke and Laura: You are right: no one moves me like Luke and Laura. I surely hope you are right also about Luke’s grieving for Laura. But, alas, Tony Geary is off on vacation and poor Genie Francis is stuck in ugly, ill-fitting clothes and mundane dialogue. Such a waste of her luminous presence. Such poor treatment of a great star.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
