THIS WEEK ON GH: Chillers, Thrillers, And One Wicked Watercooler Worthy Wedding!



It’s Halloween week 2014, and all roads to “fright night” lead to ABC’s General Hospital!

For weeks, the stories have been building, and the pieces have been placed, for major plot points to unfold causing havoc and repercussions for most of the citizens of Port Charles! First, there is Nina (Michelle Stafford) and Madeline (Donna Mills) who are scheming to take Ava’s  (Maura West) baby from her!  How will they do it?  Will they succeed?  Just how diabolical and twisted will their plot get? And,will the audience actually feel empathy for Ava in all of this?

Next, Franco (Roger Howarth) is out for revenge on Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) knowing that his bride-to-be cheated with her ex-hubby on more than one occasion! And, Franco knows that it was Sonny who killed Michael’s (Chad Duell) bio-father AJ Quartermaine! Will Michael finally learn all?

Additionally in the promo, Sam (Kelly Monaco) is seen reading a file and shocked at what she finds out! What is she discovering? How does this figure in to the equation?  Is it news about Jason (Billy Miller) … or Fluke (Tony Geary)?

Watch the GH Halloween spooktacular week promo after the jump! Then, let us know how you think these several storylines will play out in the days ahead … and, which are you looking forward to seeing the most?

Can’t see the promo in Canada 🙁

Yes lisa, you are right. I live in Vancouver Bc, Canada and cannot see the promo. That is really a bummer.

I already feel empathy for Ava. You know why? Because Maura is a fabulous actress and manages to make Ava sympathetic to me in spite of her misdeeds. Kudos to Maura!

I agree maura is such a great going from loving her to loathing her to feeling sympathetic. She shines with Morgan in storyline they have amazing chemistry.

I can’t say that I disagree with you! Maura is an unbelievable actress! She brings vulnerability to such a cold-hearted woman-especially in Ava’s scenes with Morgan. Ava seems to have deep regret over hurting him. Nevermind that Maura is gorgeous! I just love her style!

I actually like Ava…UNTIL…I remember she set up AJ on more than one occasion and had a hand in his death. (my loyalty’s always with AJ…LOL…and…not to mention .she was ready to kill Michael.) So it’s quite the conundrum!

If I HAD to make a choice I’m looking forward to Todd…I mean, Franco’s…revenge. I soooooo want Michael to find out!

lol goes to show; Ava is very versatile 🙂

when Ava is on screen, I can feel her … great actress!

You mean Maura is versatile, Su. Ava is as versatile as the writers want her to be. ….as every other role any character may play. The only versatility that is characteristically Ava? She’s extraordinarily resourceful.
I read the actor’s/actress’s face. Facial expressions mirror feelings, and Maura West is one of the few whose face tells a story….that is the reason why she is so great at her craft….among Michelle Stafford and Jenn Liley, to name a couple….

I still believe someone will get injured at the wedding, that Lucas will use his medical knowledge to save that persons life and it’ll convince Lucas to go for a medical position at GH…meanwhile, i believe RC is reworking his OLTL Victor/Todd plotline and that nuJason is really Mason…Jasons unknown twin brother who is programmed by the Cassidines to think he is the real Jason(Robin is convinced he is Jason) and the Cassidine will use Mason/Jason in their sinister plot against several PCs citizens!!!

I can’t wait for the Cassadines to return, they are immortal !!!

I am excited for this wedding!!
GH is so unique, gotta love it ..
The actors alone stamp it as awesome!!
… Nina (Michelle Stafford) and Madeline (Donna Mills) Ava (Maura West)
Franco (Roger Howarth) Jason (Billy Miller) F/luke (Tony Geary)
(Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard)
WOW !!!

The wedding will be thrilling, for sure!!

I cant wait for the wedding too…

su0000, I love all of the actors you listed above-very talented group!
I also love the Cassadines. Miss Victor and his scenes with Liesel and Spencer.

What if NuJason is really A.J. and not the twin i previously posted?

haha! I actually thought of that too! That would get Sonny off the hook…sorta. But, nahhhhhhh..

That right…Sonny would be free, and i sooooo much want Micheal to hate him and get his revenge…lol

agree jimh. can’t wait!

The wedding! I’ve NEVER liked Franco&Carly but this story is thrilling. I just hope they WONT end up married and that we will finally be heading to a Carly&Sonny reunion!

loving everything general in the hospital,,ninas a real kick,,love her and madeline…loving morgan in any scene shirtless,,,ava eats up every scene with that delicious smile that only maura west can deliver,,, billy miller is even bringing life to elizebeth….love love love general hospital…and dam young and restless i gave that show up last year now with the addition of kelly sullivan i have to tune in…..thats the only mistake general hospital has made this last year killing connie/ kate….just wish they would get rid of luke,,,havnt even noticed he was gone,,,maybe time to trade gearys demands and turmn them over to genie francis,,,,everyone still thinks of laura… last thing the cassidines without laura mean nothing,,get rid of em,,except nicholas,,,love my britnick…o,k im done

Same here, Randy. …GH is doing its thing…I thought today’s scene with Scotty and Franco sitting in bed together eating strawberries was exceptionally hilarious.

Although I have to say, CeeCee, that if I were never to see Scotty in that robe again, it would be toooo soon!

HI !!!!! Shay…..good to hear from you.
Yes, Scotty is not that easy on the eye. I mainly focus on his giant forehead….very distracting….when I see it, everything else seems to fade. That forehead surely takes precedence over all things….LOL

Hey Girl!!! Good to hear from you, too! Just wanted to wish you good luck on your imminent return to the classroom….it won’t be the same here without your copious, charm-filled comments to look forward to reading each and every day. Don’t forget about us, and do try to check in now and then….I know you will be super busy—I say after my own week-long+ absence—but I’ll be eagerly anticipating your glittering jewels of colossal wit!!!! Take care!!!! P.S. Um, yeah, Scotty’s expiration date on “stud muffin” status expired many moons ago!

oh girls…stop it! I LOVE Scott! He’s soooo much a part of GH history…and I always find him lovable even when he’s annoying! And I agree; the father/son bonding bed scene, LOL, was tres amuse…ANDDDDDDDD…I don’t think Scott’s bad looking at all…just needs to drop a few but I think he’s held up well.

Was looking at Michael Easton on youtube today…don’t know the year…but he was so incredibly good-looking and had a great body. When he took off his shirt he had ink and muscles. Not quite sure why he lost so much weight…still a looker though.

Hi Shay!!! Yes, was wondering where you were.

Hi CeeCee. Hope your school daze will still allow you to unwind with your soaps and partake in the ring here. 😉

I just read Shays reply…didnt know you’ll be off for awhile…i too wish you good luck in the classroom…i, unfortunately, will be leaving this site early next year and maybe for good…i need to make some cuts and it looks like im going to start with cable and internet…i was going to cut out food but according to my doctor i need to eat to live…lol…i’m going to stay on here for as long as i can…maybe by New Years things will change …ill keep my fingers crossed…but if not…well, you know the saying ‘All good things must come to an end’…if that happens i might try the computers at the library and check the site out once in awhile but they are usually full…i wont leave here until its definate!!!

Hello to you, too, rebecca1!!! Been awol for a bit…thanks for noticing….nothing serious, just too much to do and too little time! I tend to agree that Scott is not necessarily bad looking….he has potential, but it’s his buffoonish, boorish, blowhard behavior that is so off-putting to me, and also the electrified hedgehog coiffure. I just don’t get it….he has a good, full head of hair, he should grow it out more so that his face doesn’t look so full. I also would like him better with a different woman….I found his pairing with Lucy to be insufferable and now that he has “chosen” Bobbie, it’s all I can do to not look away in complete horror at the two of them. Even though I didn’t want to see him with Laura because of their history, he was far more bearable when they were together. As for ME….yep, he was quite the looker back in the day…always unique, and with the coolest vibe. I cannot tell you had many times I saw him on primetime episodes……they never failed to be a treat! I still find him to be very appealing most of the time….again, the hair is the key….when the style is a tad off he can look too gaunt facially, but regardless I do like our Silas!!!! (Great little mini-reunion with Sam, by the way….awwww.)

Ron tried the twin brother thing with Franco which wasn’t believable to the fans who know that Susan Moore had one 8lb baby boy back in the 80’s. Unless it is revealed that the detective who called Alan from NYC telling him of Jason’s birth was in on the cover up, I don’t see that happening.

What is Carly dressed up as/in? I am interested in seeing the aftermath once the truth is revealed. I am tired of the same conversations between Carly and Sonny. I was watching the scenes where Michael found Sonny in the Quartermaine Crypt and what ridiculous lines-Sonny dreaming of murdering Faison. What father says that to their son? I’ve always been a fan of Maurice’s-since his AMC days and his early days in PC with Brenda, Lois, and Ned. Nowadays, the writers give him the same lines to repeat-which are basically ridiculous-how Carly belongs with him, blah, blah. Seriously, how many women has he said that to? Grew tired of Carly’s obsession with Jason and Sonny a long time ago, too.
I am enjoying watching Donna Mills. Have always loved her. Have grown fond of Michelle Stafford. Always love Dr. O-comedic genius! Love and miss the Q’s.
Nice having a break from Sam.

I think Sam finds out that Danny is sick again & this time Julian’s bone marrow won’t be able to save him! Paging Mr. “Jake Doe”! 😉

That crossed my mind, too, don holley.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

Television legend, Norman Lear passed away on Wednesday at the age of 101 years old. The comedy genius who created, wrote and produced some of the greatest sitcoms of all time died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lear’s body of work included: All in the Family, One Day at a Time, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, Sanford & Son, plus the soapy, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has been working as a director in the television industry for years now and upon learning the news of Lear’s passing, shared a very touching moment via her Instagram that stayed with her through her directorial career. McCullough had been a director on the reboot of One Day at a Time that featured EGOT winner, Rita Moreno.

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What are Your First Impressions of Charles Mesure as ‘Mr. Brennan’?

There’s a new villain in town and things are about to get turned upside down for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) as General Hospital circles back around to the looming mysterious ‘Pikeman’ story and who was the target of the shooting at the Metro Court that put Curtis in a wheelchair.

Last Friday, and into yesterday’s Tuesday, December 5th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers were introduced to “Mr. Brennan” who has to turn out to be the dastardly “Pikeman.”

If his portrayer looks familiar, actor Charles Mesure has appeared in numerous television series and film roles including: Once Upon a Time, CastleThe MentalistDesperate HousewivesBones and more. Mesure is also British-born, but moved to Australia when he was younger, accounting for the fabulous accent “Mr Brennan” has on GH.


In story on GH, as Sonny was telling “Mr. Brennan’s” minion, Hume that he would no longer run Pikeman’s shipments through his territory, the guy showed up at Kelly’s Diner with an ominous message for Carly (Laura Wright), although she doesn’t know it.

On Tuesday, in his room at the Metro Court, Brennan is upset that Sonny won’t work with him and tells Hume he plans to stay in Port Charles to make sure the shipments to Canada are ready to go. We also learn that apparently the head of the WSB has taken a leave of absence. Brennan reveals that being the director has its benefits. He then says he got rid of Frisco and he can work remotely and now things are falling into place.

Hume asks Brennan who the intended target is in all of this, and he says both Sonny and Anna. “Brennan’s” goal is to force Sonny’s hand to continue the shipments and more. Meanwhile, Curtis on the case as to who is behind his shooting and more.

So, what has been your impressions thus far of GH’s newest baddie as played by Charles Mesure? Let us know in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Proposes to Brook Lynn; Kristina and Blaze Share a Kiss

Finally, many GH viewers got their wish, when on the Monday, December 4th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Chase (Josh Swickard) got down on one knee (a few times) and proposed to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton).

At first, Brook Lynn balked at his attempt as she believed Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois (Rena Sofer) were pressuring him to do so. When she tells Chase marriage is off the table he pulls out an engagement ring. Chase reveals he was planning on proposing at Christmas, so he had the ring ready to go. A romantic Chase shares that he doesn’t want to waste one more day as he clearly knows what matters now … her!  With that, Chase gets back down on his knees and proposes again, and this time Brook Lynn says, “yes!” The two seal the deal with a kiss!

Molly (Kristen Vaganos) breaks the news to TJ (Tajh Bellow), that she now wants to accept her sister, Kristina’s (Kate Mansi) offer to be their surrogate, after all the failures they have been through in trying to find a candidate that will stick.  While TJ voices his concerns, he eventually comes around and tells Molly, “Let’s have a baby,” and now seems excited about the prospect of Kristina being the answer to their prayers. They seal the deal with a kiss!

Kristina and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) get together with a bottle of champagne, since Blaze’s latest song just hit number one on the charts. During their conversation, Kristina asks what is Blaze’s real name? She reveals it’s “Alison”.


Later, Kristina opens up about her past and her abusive relationship with Keifer, her short marriage to Trey and then how she went away to college and fell for her professor Parker Forsythe (formerly Ashley Jones).  She then reveals Parker went back to her ex. However, Kristina’s takeaway was she realized she was clearly into women. That leaves the moment open for Blaze to make a move on Kristina and the two share a kiss.

So, three kisses moved the stories forward on this episode of GH. Which are you most happy about? Chase and Brook Lynn getting engaged? GH moving forward with a same-sex romance for Kristina and Blaze, or TJ and Molly coming together to agree to let Kristina be their surrogate? Three kisses, three different stories.  Let us know via the comment section below.
