THIS WEEK ON GH: Rivalries Are Rising, Tension Is Mounting … Summer In Port Charles Is About To Blow Up!



This week on ABC’s General Hospital look for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), Julian Jerome (William deVry) and then some … as the mob wars to heat up once again!

In this newly released on-air promo: Julian has a gun, so does Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and something is about to blow up!  From Ava (Maura West) to Carly (Laura Wright) to Shawn (Sean Blakemore) to Julian and Sonny these characters lives are now seemingly forever intertwined!

Watch the promo after the jump and then ponder these questions! Do you think Sonny and Carly will be finding their way back to each other soon?  How long can Ava’s lies go on without it catching it up with her and putting her behind bars?  Will Julian and Sonny work together to bring down the ultimate bad guy?  Do you want Jordan and Shawn to become a couple? And what about … Fluke (Tony Geary)?  What is blown-up? Share your thoughts on what you think will go down in Port Charles over the next few weeks and what you would like to see happen!

Is Tony Geary coming back to finish Fluke…rumors he will be leaving GH for good…is it because of his ‘back problems’ or his ‘life’ in Amesterdam that he perfers…will Sonny end up with Carly…or Ava who is NOT being killed off…Poor Morgan…he’s paired with Rosallee…Shawn and Jordan=Micheal and Kiki=BOARDOM!!!…and speaking of boring Scott, Bobbi and Lucy arent on enough and too boring for me to even care about this dull love triangle…and i said Maxi will marry Levi…dumb, dumb, ta’dumb!!!…sigh!!!

How come Dr. FrankenRobin cant bring Rafe back from the dead…he’d look neat with a bolt sticking out of each his neck…we already had a vampire on the show so why not?

each side…hate editing…lol

each side of his neck…dang…lol

Jim, I hear ya. Rafe does look a little like Eddie Munster

LOL, I’d honestly like for Rafe to return as a vampire. Not gonna happen, but I could dream… I’d love to see the vampires in Port Charles thing end for good. All the players are there… Lucy. Silas. Sam. Now, all we need is to bring back Rafe and his dad, Stephen Clay AKA Caleb Morely, and maybe the original angel Rafe, his adoptive father.

Actually… better not. LOL. RIP, Rafe. I’ll miss that kid. He was awkward and sweaty, and constantly eating. It was one of the truest portrayals of a teenager on television.

tony did an interview & said he will be back in october – he is recuperating from two serious back surgeries – he will be doing several phone scenes

I read Luke is off for a while. Anthony has had some severe back problems, and had back surgery and recovery to deal with, and has been resting at his home in Amsterdam.

I did read somewhere he might be leaving for good but i dont always believe everything i read so hopefully he will return and at least finish this storyline…now im hearing Levi may be flukes son?

You quote a lot of alleged rumors but where are you getting these from? I’ve never read anything about Geary leaving for good. In fact he said he was having the time of his life playing this story.

I thought i replied but i dont see it here unless it comes later: i dont see it as qouting alleged rumors but asking one plain and simple question from reading other sites and a mag from my doctors office…TG did say he enjoyed playing the fluke role but with his back problems and all i still wonder if he will definately return…i suffer from severe back problems so i know what thats like and ive given up on a lot i like to do…i was a little groggy from meds when i read those things so perhaps i misunderstood…i will wait and see what happens…i do hope he returns as plan…TG has done an amazing job in his dual role and should be an emmy winner next year!!!

From the Globe and Entertainment News…they hinted and thats why i asked…just to clear things up!!!

A possible Ned and Olivia pairing…

That’s what I read.

Don’t mess with Sonny. Jillian should keep a leach on Ava.

I love, love, love this show. I get so giddy with excitement when it comes on, that I start tap dancing in front of the television while screaming , ‘GH RULES! My neighbors in the apartment below know not to be home at two o’clock and my dog has run away.
Ron deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for soap opera writing. I find it appalling he hasn’t received one yet.

Jillian should keep a leach on Ava?

yes yes YES!!

…. Lights, camera, action !!!! …. bring it on!!!

The mob is exciting, daring, and I never even blink (might miss a good part)

GH = unique ..

I never blink while watching GH either. That is because I have been tied to a chair with my eye lids pried open ala Clockwork Orange.

Replying here…i too think Rafe resembles Eddie Munster now that you mentioned it…also love your replies to suOOO and sometimes i even enjoy suOOO as well but when its you two together i usually get a chuckle…kind of like the Odd Couple and i mean that in a good way…lol

yah know, Harry..
If some fans would loosen up lighten up and have fun with all the BS a soap has to offer they would have a good time watching..
Some go way over the limit with seriousness ..
I’m looking forward to a good shoot ’em up mod war!! May the best man win !!

(I hope they don’t shoot The Dunkleman! 🙂

@jimh…..I too, am a great fan of Harry’s rapier sharp wit….it is often far more entertaining than the topic at hand. However, I do wonder if he’s creating a monster in that sparring partner of his….she seems to feed off of all that brilliantly-put negative reinforcement that he is so good at dishing out on a daily basis! Plus, it’s just not a fair fight…he brings his clever, vocabulary-laden daisycutters and she a slingshot with platitudinal pebbles.

Unique????? Whats unique??? Give me ONE example pal!!

Su00, you want a mod war? Say it ain’t so, dear. Really, the idea of Julie, Pete and Link fighting it out breaks my heart.
I blame Dunkleman.

Jim! That is not a spoon! That is a ladle! Please tel Suoo.

I’ve been saying that Sabrina shouldn’t go back with Patrick because he left her literally at the alter…for Robin. Now that is NOTHING…compared to how pathetic it would be for Carly to go back to Sonny. The man literally threatened to kill her if Olivia died…and yet she’s been his loyal puppy dog as usual. I think if anything on the show bothers me that would be it. Sonny has fathered children with Olivia, Carly and Alexis. And yet Carly acts as if they have a special bond because of their children…don’t know why the writers have made it so.

The only way they can keep Maura West on the show is if they send her to jail for a limited time and then get her out on a loophole or something. We know Sonny won’t kill her.

I like Shawn and Jordan. I think they could make for a very interesting storyline…we still don’t know the truth about TJ’s dad…is he alive…does Shawn think he killed him..if so, what really happened.

I still love Scott and Lucy. Would like to see them have more airtime.

Still haven’t heard confirmation if Tony Geary’s leaving…so it should be interesting to see how it all plays out. I’d like to see him on the canvas as Luke a bit before he goes…I’d hate to have Fluke be his swan song…too eerie.

The only reason you would want to pair Sonny & Carly back together is if the wonderful Tamara Braun was still playing Carly. Off the charts chemistry between those two not been the same since she left.

I agree Tamara was amazing (though i do think Laura’s great in the role and made it her own). But I think regardless of who plays Carly that whole death threat from Sonny was pretty intense and totally out of character. I could see him scared out of his mind at losing Olivia…I could see him pissed and wanting revenge…but to Carly? One of the mother’s of his children who he’s had nothing on the show with other than love, lust, attachment and a get-on-each other’s-nerves but always have each other’s backs relationship? Didn’t make sense…and I think the aftermath of that threat should have been delved into more. He apologized, she accepted and they moved on. I don’t know, someone makes a threat like that…it’d kinda difficult to get past…

Uhh, Tamara had some unique qualities about her and definitely made the role of Carly her own- but no one can compare to the one and only original Carly, Sarah Brown! The best, the first, and the irreplaceable Brown who can absolutely chew up the scenery and spit it out is not only the best actress ever on GH, but one of the best actressess on the planet!

Hi Rebecca. I’m a pretty faithful watcher…and I don’t recall Sonny ever apologizing for threatening to murder Carly. What I find so gross and misogynistic about this is….Carly and Bobbie are mother and daughter. While talking to Ava recently, Carly actually bragged about Sonny threatening to murder her! What a brain dead moronic stupid trashy mob moll Carly is. She proudly said something like “He threatened to murder me….and I’m the mother of his child. What do you think he is going to do to you?”. And Bobbie….during a fight with Lucy the other day, she actually bragged about being a whore on the past!!! Really good writing there pals!!

Can we please have this greasy disgusting violent mobster thug stop threatening to murder a pregnant woman every day??????? I sincerely hope that is not going to go on for 9 months?? Where are the viewers who are normally screaming about violence and abuse towards women????? This is the worst!!

I hope it will bring some of the couples together…..I don’t like:

Sam and Patrick…wrong

Maxi and Levi….wrong

Nina and Silas…………WAY WRONG…

I Hope Roselie leave GH….

So yeah bring the explosion ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sam & NuJason

Maxi & The Nutcracker!

Nina & Franco PLEASE! [NANCO or FINA?]

Awww, I like Rosalie.

Wow- Nina and Franco! That never occurred to me. I can’t stand Carly and Franco (no chemistry whatsoever) and I’m a big Roger H. fan so perhaps Michelle the catalyst he needs.

I thought Todd & Carly had chemistry but Franco & Carly don’t. go figure — same actors ???

Agreed Todd & Carly great connection,Franko & Carly HUGE mistake,FLAT on screen.
Love Maxi but NOT with levy, he makes me physically sick!

Looks like the Metro Court dining room which is way overdue for a renovation.

Hmm I thought it looked like Alexis’ house… we shall see 🙂

I thought it looked like Alexis’ too; I think that’s her dining room set.

Stop the vid and you will see it is OUTDOORS..there is greenery and a BBQ and table and chairs there.. could be at Alexis’s house.. Not indoors..

If only it would actually BE Alexis!!!!

Well you can have an explosion to destroy a set or you could put Ava, Nina, Carly, Lucy in the room and they could chew the scenery!!!!

Hopefully its Maxie’s apartment with Levi in it!

Better yet, k/kay, combine those two elements! I wouldn’t miss any of those dames, and while you’re at it, make absolutely sure Alexis, Jordan, Bobbie, Sappy and Gross-alie are in there, too!!!! (I would consider that a total bonus!!!!) But seriously, the show needs a wholesale clear out, either by bombs-a-dropping or epidemic breakout…the cast is so laden with deadweight that it fails to even be interesting most days. Simply reading a recap generally suffices.

Also get rid of Lucas, Brad and Felix…the worse triangle ever going back and forth with each other: Brad and Felix, Brad and Lucas, Felix and Lucas, and so on…an uniteresting plot with three boring characters that goes nowhere…doesnt connect to other characters and plots…just a mindless filler and totally pointless!!!

@ Shay Just so you and everyone else on here who posts I am having fun with most of this but at the same point I am saddened by the quality of the last 4 remaining soaps! With that being said here is how I handle a stressful situation I find myself in when I am watching a soap that is driving me crazy. I handle it like my little female dog if she can not play with it or she can not eat it she pees on it and walks away. 🙂

@jimh…I don’t mind Brad and Lucas, as I think they could expand their mutual mob heritage and big bad babydaddies into an interesting storyline that would connect today’s canvas to some interesting characters and history of the past, but for the life of me, I cannot abide the presence of Felix. He is a third-wheel in that trio and an annoying busybody in all other aspects. Who died and made him social director for the nurses’ dating lives? It was bad enough (REALLY bad….) the way he obsessed on and constantly assisted Sappy in her non-stop pursuit of Patrick—-to the detriment of his own personal relationships, no less—-but there he was the other day acting in the exact same capacity for Liz at the kiddie camp during her petty little competition with Britt over Nik. It were as if they just substituted RH for Sobby to give the tiresome, one-note Mr. DuBois something to do. Well, those who can do and those who can’t, interfere in others’ business. I’ve had enough of this nosy, unappealing gadfly….wish they would send him off along with his sickening sidekick for a permanent vacay instead of bringing her back to drag down the show once again.!

“Laden with dead weight”. How completely accurate!!!!!!!!! There are at least 15 characters who could be written off tomorrow and no one would miss them or care. Say what you will about Jill Farren Phelps but she came onto Y and R and quickly got rid of a lot of characters that just weren’t working in pretty short order. None of them got s grand send off they just left town. Maria Bell bloated the cast with top flight talent from other shows but underdeveloped characters and bad writing will do in even the best of actors. Like…who the hell is this Rosalie person and why is she on every day and why does she threaten and bully teenagers and why are they bringing her into Morgan’s orbit??

@k/kay….Well, not being a pet person, I will have to take your word for doggie behavior, but I feel as though that is what has happened to our soaps, particularly GH, courtesy of Ron C. and company. Hence, one needs to find some humor (even dark…) in the situation, or else we’d simply cry!!!! (And for the record, I already have one foot out the door….my viewing is becoming more and more infrequent. I just keep hoping that improvement, no matter how minute, might still happen…..)

Shay, maybe Brad and Lucas would be ok if Felix was out of the picture but for now this tiresome triangle goes nowhere and has no real connection to the other storylines…now if Lucas had been bisexual and slept with Sabrina…just teasing, i wont go there…lol…anyway i did like Brad at one time and his performance at the nurses ball but having Brad fall for Felix then sleeping with Lucas and then Lucas with Felix and none of them knowing whom they really want to be with is just too much for me to stomach…if it comes to an end with just Brad and Lucas and move on…i might change my mind about them!!!

@jimh….Exactly! We are on the same page…..I find the insertion of Felix into this storyline too much to bear, too….it is yet another gratuitous waste of time. There was no mutual chemistry or compelling reason for it to happen, it was merely an exercise in futility to occupy the intrusive Mr. DuBois until his BFF Sappy (ICK!) returns so he can run her life again…..without her he is like a lost puppy with no other purpose in life. In general, I don’t like triangles, unless they have truly appealing parties with real conflicts and strong motivations for their existence…..not just petty revenge….I don’t see that here. It’s bed-hopping for the superficial sake of being provocative and expedient in the short-run, and that IS tedious. Hence, you are right that there should be some sort of tie-in to a greater means to an end here, but then again, that’s what I cannot abide in this show…we have too many useless freestanding filler “vignettes” that have nothing to do with anything other than wasting space….and with each added newbie there are more and more of them!!! When Brad and Lucas began their fling, there seemed to be a method to the madness of putting them together….they had some family dynamics in common and it appeared that they were going to draw upon that shared aspect, with a nod to GH’s historical crime clans….an interesting notion, indeed. Now that issue apparently has been discarded like so many other ideas that are bandied about with huge fanfare, then ultimately tossed away with the wind. It is not a good way to keep people engaged, that’s for sure. As for Lucas, I thought they initially brought him on to reconnect him with the hospital in a future employment capacity….so far nothing on that front either. It’s as if the fact that there is a medical facility that is supposed to be directly linked to the action of “GH” is often forgotten! It is now a minor backdrop to the glorious mob sagas we are treated to on a daily basis, only to be incorporated when triage for a casualty is required!

Anthony Geary is having the time of his life playing Fluke. He will be “Back” in October full time after recovering from two different back surgeries. Get well Tony!

So……..Ron and Frank are the equivalent of weathermen EVERYWHERE!!!!! Weathermen are the ONLY profession alive who can have 0% accuracy in their job…and still keep their job. And so are Ron and Frank!!!! They came on this show promising fans one thing…and have completely delivered another thing to fans. They said no more mob…they said rebuild the Quartermaines…..they promised more vets…they have completely shit on the fans who care about this show. I am paging Wendy Riche and Claire Labine!!!!!!! Hard!!!!!!¡

Johnny Johnny Johnny,
Ron and Frank never made any promises..
They never ever said no more mob, but perhaps a cut back, and there has been..
the Mob is a cornerstone of GH, and long it should live..
As for the Q’s they tried, it did not work out out.. the old Q’s did not want to return, were retired or dead.. can not have newbies as a core family.. sometimes things fade away..
Haha Ron and Frank shit on you ahha.. well, you had best stand back before the flies come and all that nasty business..
I’m a huge fan and Ron and Frank did not shit on me, you must have been one their chosen fans ahaa… that’s what happens when you dis GH..
I like the mob it makes GH unique and adventurous and great drama..

Actually, they did make promises, su000, and no more mob was one of them. However, I’ll say this much: it may not be their fault that the mob has come back so strongly. Everyone should keep in mind that although they undoubtedly do play a large part in the decision making, neither Ron nor Frank has the final word. ABC still owns the show, and though Brian Frons may be gone, I don’t see any evidence that his successors meddle less, or have better ideas about what the show should be, than he did. I’d lay money that both the mob resurgence and the “Hey! Let’s bring back Roger Howarth as FRANCO! What a great idea!” debacle are the result of network decisions; they both have network-think written all over them (i.e., what network suits who don’t have any idea what soap audiences really want would think would be a great idea, as opposed to what viewers really want to see). And if the ABC bosses say X, Ron and Frank get paid to make it happen.

I’d second Johnny’s page for Riche and Labine, except that they’re the ones that gave us Sonny in the first place. They did keep the mob elements in better balance with other aspects of the show, however, so on that count I’d like to see them back. But it’s not happening. Claire’s retired, don’t know what Riche is up to, but the ratings are in reasonably good shape (better than when Ron and Frank took over, for sure), and Frank is known for bringing his shows in under budget, so my bet is that they’re not going anywhere. And even if they did, whoever would be behind them would probably be even less satisfactory.

By the way, which old Qs were asked to return and did not want to? I hadn’t heard that bit of news.

Sonnys office and the rrt gallery, they were in both places ..

”art” gallery

What would I like to see happen in Port Charles? More friendships. More relationships develop. More romance.

In other words, what soaps are supposed to be all about, dmr!!!! I hear you! Unfortunately, it seems that on GH if you can’t hook it up, mess it up or blow it up, they don’t wanna know……

Its a cheap promo for ratings. There will be no conclusion to this storyline until Tony comes back in October.

What 60 year old women act like Lucy and Bobbie????? What a disgusting degrading portrayal of two women who were able to overcome an acrimonious past and bond through their shared tragedy of BJ’s death. And for Bobbie to proudly throw her hooker past in Lucy’s face as a form of bragging just about decimates every shred of dignity this character has earned over the past 36 years. Before they think about rolling on the floor fighting…they should be worried about breaking a hip. I wish Ron wrote characters instead of caricatures. I almost wish he would not have brought any of the vets at all as he has trashed all of them and ruined what was a glorious legacy…Scott…Felicia…Lucy…Anna…Duke…they are all written as complete morons…only on screen to prop whatever new creation they are trying to push. yesterday’s episode was absolutely painful to watch from start to finish!!

wait, is that Bobbie?? I can’t tell underneath that blown up face of hers. She looks AWFUL. I can’t even watch her anymore!

Ya….Bobbie….who tries so hard to shed her past as a hooker for 30 some years…now Ron has her bragging about being a whore and rolling on floors and beds with Lucy. Over Scott.

Amen to that, Johnny! I chose the wrong episode to actually watch for the first time in over a week…those distasteful, over-the-hill sexcapades made me want to hurl. Thankfully, I wasn’t having my lunch at the same time! Back to the online recaps…..

Johnny….I always enjoy your posts of moral indignation in regard to GH and its continual downhill trajectory in that respect, but on this particular thread you are on a right roll!!!! The revisionist aspects of every legacy character we have known and often loved in Port Charles over these lo so many decades is beyond reprehensible…it has left longtime favorites as nothing more than unrecognizable, inconsistent puppet-like figures prone to idiotic after idiotic action! Everyone, no matter their age or station in life, must now be a reprobate or deviant in some way…there are no adult role models, practically no two-parent nuclear families and the children often have more common sense than their fathers, or more precisely, their single mothers. (Of which a number have the glorious distinction of earning the 3X3 designation….three offspring via the same number of different babydaddies.) It seems that every form of dysfunction currently affecting society is being proudly and loudly proclaimed and represented on the GH canvas, and the only missing element is the one of normality and decency. Of course, I recognize that soaps have always been a breeding ground for unsavory behaviors and outre’ plot twists….that is their calling card! However, these undesirable, over-the-top antics were once judiciously doled out and exquisitely performed amongst the arch villain, town bad girl, society witch, ne’er do well rich kid, etc…..they were never the order of the day for the entire population of a given soap city! Where are the Steve and Audreys, the Lee and Gails—even the Edward and Lilas, Alan and Monicas, and Rick and Lesleys, albeit with personal shortcomings– providing a loving, stable atmosphere for their immediate and extended families???? It’s as if Port Charles is on one continual happy acid trip, and that those of us who utter dismay over this sick development are the odd men (and women) out!!!! At least it’s a joy and comfort to share these views with a few others like yourself who so eloquently express their disgust over the sorry, surreal state of this once-venerable show!!!! Keep up the good work, Johnny!!!! P.S. Yes, exactly who is this “Gross-alie” person, indeed, and why are we being subjected to her obnoxious presence and unnecessary mingling with the local denizens???? She is one of the most ill-bred, grating and appalling creatures to darken GH in recent years, and why???? At this point, it is obvious that Nina can now do her own dirty work…please let Silas kick this unappealing she-me to the curb and send her back from whence she came!!!!

Wow Shay!!!!!! What an awesome letter!! I love big words and correct grammar and punctuation. Couple that with someone who is as horrified with the writing as I am….well its utter perfection!!! Let’s be friends!!! 🙂

Absolutely, Johnny, and thank you for your complimentary reply! I also believe in giving credit where credit is due…..thus, your cogent, impassioned postings are always a treat and privilege to behold, not to mention, totally spot-on in content, as well! We kindred spirits must stick together in our desire to see GH improve and return to the show of excellence that it was for many of its 50+ year history. Until then, however….keep on critiquing!

Maybe we will all be lucky. They can have a big mob shootout and no ones left standing. All dead. Winners the viewers! They did say they were getting rid of the mob and bringing back the Q’s they just didn’t say they would all be in body bags.

I wish this mob shoot out will kill Sonny, Carly. Franco, Shawn, Jordan, Julian, Fluke, etc.

It is uncanny how in tune this current regime is with what the viewers want!!! We have been begging for at least 20 years to showcase more and heightened mob violence….more innocent women and teenagers being brutally murdered…more shootouts….am am so glad they are finally listening to what the majority of viewers want!!!

I’m for it!
GH has a mob.. I love it so do many others.. A soap like no others..
It rocks!!
I never seen anyone being ”’brutally” murdered.. just shot ..bang bang lol
nonetheless I could go for some brutality but GH has never offered it 🙁

The mob scenes are short lived, a scene or two of a shooting, I would like much more 🙂 The mob stuff is cool !! it is different, and that is good..

Forgive me for asking, su00000000000000000!, but are you this delusional 24/7 or just on weekdays between the hours of 2:00 and 3:00pm? I really have wondered……

It looks like Alexis house is being blown up. So HOPEFULLY she’ll revert back to being a Cassidine.

Ava may fake her death. Probably by the explosion.

And it seems like Sonny, Shawn and body guard walked into a trap.

Really don’t care that Sam and Silas are breaking up…

Well some people care…..this is a mistake to me..

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly… No matter what’s written,the writers will never be able to satisfy
all the FANS at same time, it’s an impossible feat.

I can’t stand Levi. I hope Maxi doesn’t marry him, it would be a big mistake. Plus he is using her so he won’t be deported. Don’t like his appearance at all. He is such a liar. He looks like milk toast and pasty face. Now Maxi doesn’t dress fashionably no more because she is with Levi. Not sophisticated anymore. Levi needs to go..

Susan…I (also) CANNOT STAND Levi!!!!! (1) Levi’s so-called hairstyle (or whatever) is BEYOND LAME. (2) Levi ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE he has a stupid-ass grin plastered on his face. (3) Most of all, the sound of Levi’s voice makes me wanna rip out my own damn voice!!!!! Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!! M-O-R-O-N!!!!!

Susan…take care, dear. XOXOXOXOXO

I agree, his hair style is awful. I hope Maxi see’s him for the fraud & liar he is.

Susan…as far as I’m concerned, that BLAND-AS-HELL character Levi adds NOTHING to GH. PERIOD!!!!!

Take care, Susan.

I agree 100%
