I’m hoping Sam stays with Jason, that her baby lives and doesn’t get switched, I would love for John and sam to be brother and sister. that tea has twins, and finds out victor is alive, for Blair, little sam (recast), Jack(also recast) and Viki come to PC and Blair gets back together with Todd, and stays with him this time, it’s about time that GH has a few couples who stay together like in the old days. the mob stories need to become back burnered.

I agree Sharon. GH stop trying to fabricate a connection between Sam and John. There is a reason why John and Natalie were popular on OLTL so bring Nat and Liam over to GH! Along a Nat and Jason pairing would serve John right for cheating with Sam.

i totally agfree with you hope sam stays with jason not john macbain i won’t be surpise if sam with john

Hi Michael. I know I keep asking same question. But, can u make my wish come true and tell me Jack Wagner is coming to GH as Frisco to reunite with,Felicia and his family please.
I hope he does return and Kimberly Mccullough as Robin to reunite with Jason Thompson Patrick and her daughter Emma.
I,know ur tired hearing from,me and im sorry. 🙁

Tash10204@aol.com

I soooo want JW to return to PC as Frisco! Come on Cartini, you guys have made a tremendous job with the show…now plz do us one little favour and bring JW back!

I heard that Jack and Kristen had a very bad divorce, and that Jack refuses to work with her.

that’s because Jack is a sex addicted phony asshole.

I have only this to say, “McBain, leave Sam alone! If you want to live and see your son, Liam, grow, leave Sam be!

Looks intense. I am glad to know Tea can’t stand the sight of Todd–I can’t either. If Jason doesn’t want McBain around Sam, maybe Jason should have treated her better. Ratings for GH can only improve.

Seriously, I can’t get over how terribly Jason is treating sam, Cant wait to see tea let Todd have it, Hopefully Victor is close by, May is going to be interesting for the characters of Port charles. Isn’t general hospital so good again, With the help of our One life to live cross overs.

I agree with Barbara t………………….. I agree with you totally.. We are on the same page…OLTL cross overs………………..

Yay!! Tea!!!
So glad Carly is being Carly. -Totally vicious once she’s been messed with. True to form!
Not sure about the Sam/Jason/McBain thing yet but I definitely think Jason is acting like an ass. I’m not digging him at all right now. Where is Natalie? John is not a cheat!
Poor Kate.

I hope John won’t cheat on Natalie……………Sam belongs with Jason…………….

GH has been THIS GOOD IN YEARS! I stopped watching a long time ago when it became the same tired retold mafia show. THe characters were boring,the stories were boring and it simply sucked. Since it has been in the hands of Ron and Frank it has become MUST SEE TV! LOVE IT!! And Kudos to the actress playing Kate/Connie. She is FANTASTIC! Megan Ward was not cast well…TOO stale white bread but this woman ROCKS! And John makes Sam interesting again! KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK and I’ll never miss a day again:)

Thats HASN’T been this good 🙂

Yes it is much better (GH)…………

I agree John makes Sam interesting, she was never interesting before. I think she should turn out to be his presumed dead little sister as that would explain their connection while paying fidelity to Natalie and John’s romance.

I agree Joe! I find myself looking forward to GH every day when up until just recently I only watched it to support our soaps. I genuinely look forward to it now. There has been a gradual turnaround-due to Ron & Frank & it is paying off. Loving it (still miss OLTL though, miss it bad)

Don’t want a McBain/Sam pairing or triangle. McBain loves Natalie & Liam. OLTL fans deserve their happy ending!

I’m w/u MBmomof3!!! I’m not getting the Jolie and Jasam dynamic. 1 day McBain seems like a devoted husband (that’s where they suedo left it, Natalie married a cop) and dad (w/the calls and trip back). Then another day there’s similar lines and plot points John and Natalie had, but using Sam in Nat’s place. I remember the John, Evang and Nat triangle–least they were all single and on the canvas. It was a good triangle, both women were good prospects. But this…It’s all frustrating. I’m a JOLIE fan so I know couples break up, etc…. But do something about the family already, make McBain’s intentions more clear and be more creative at least if they’re going the McBam route. I’m not a personal fan of McBam, but do it rgt and creative at least. Not to mention the whole Jasam, they tried for so long to have a baby and now this Franco mess. I would like to see Jason/SB step up and really work it. He re-newed his contract too I hear. When i was frustrated w/one couple on OLTL I bounced to another. Now I don’t have any on GH. Miss Robin and Pat. UGhh…I wonder and hope MA comes.

Who’s JOLIE???????????????I am a fan of John McBain & Natalie & many others from OLTL……………………..I like seeing them on GH…Because I miss my favorite soap(OLTL)………………

John and Nat’s fanbase combine the names and came up w/”JOLIE”. A short cut name for the couple. I had to get familiar w/some of the soap board terms. They’ve been referenced Jolie for a while now, as far as i know.

I agree COMPLETELY!

Yeah, it all seems so contrived–let’s show case what ME can do w/his words, gestures, etc.. no matter if i makes sense or not. So what if Sam is preggers and about to drop any day, let’s recycle the popular Jolie hightlighted stories. No 1 will notice……

wow tea back on screen looking foward to it she is great actress and guess carly will be getting revenge back on johnny just do not know what her plan is hmmm

are you nuts? She is a horrible actress–the only thing she knows how to do is to shriek.

She isn’t a terrible actress….And I don’t think she shrieks at all……..If Todd did something wrong, she let’s him know about it…That’s sticking up for yourself….

Well if kathy is nuts so am I, I cant wait to see tea, shes a great actress and will enjoy watching her in the courtroom up against diane or alexis.

Not gonna lie…I may of squeeled when I saw Tea! CAN’T WAIT!!

So did I, I hear she will be on wednesday. CANT WAIT EITHER.

I will be watching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tea will be so Good on GH! I would think Nat would have followed John to PC by now!

Can’t wait for Tea! Love John and Natalie together finally leave them alone bring Nat to GH! Jason and Sam need to work things out! Loving GH right now!

Tea is dreadful, dreadful–she is an assault on the audio processing system. She’s also a deplorable actress–please make her go away.

I agree with Mary H………….

I agree with you Mary H.

This week Tea & Todd??? LOVE it!!!

So am I !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It will be even better when Todd and Blair are together!

Looks great!!! Love that Tea is coming to PC!!! Wish TSJ as Victor would be coming too! This is looking great and the ratings should go up! McBain can be related to Sam. I can’t wait to see Carly and Tea together would loke to see them be mixed up together and eventualy become friends. Not as excited about RH coming back still wish it were TSJ coming on the GH canvas. Still want Kate/Connie to get committed and out of PC… just not liking that storyline. Can’t wait to see what else they throw at MB he handles it so well.

BORING! Nothing and nobody I care about.

Words cannot say how excited I am to see Tea and Todd returning. I miss OLTL more than any show I have ever watched on television. Thanks to the fantastic writers and Frank Valentini for bring Llanview to Port Charles. Next is going to be TSJ to finalize the OLTL storyline. All I can hope is that they stay on the show for good. Then they need to bring Vicki to help Kate. This is getting so good I can’t stand it. Thanks Ron and Frank, I have happiness again.

I look forward to that caterwauling shrew Tea to leave–why on earth would Ron bring back that obnoxious shrieking bitch when the fans detest her? I look forward to Blair coming back as well as Todd. I am enjoying John McBain on GH as he is making both Sonny and Jason look silly and small.

UMM the fans love Tea and the actress. If you dont like it then take ur (nobody asked or cares for your opinion) thought somewhere Ok PLZ AND DONT EVER COME BACK!!!

Think you’re in the minority when you say “fans detest her”. Besides you, who are you referring to? Kinda don’t think Ron & Frank would bring back a character that the fans hate, they’re better businessmen than that!

Your right fan.

Gosh, what did Tea ever do to you? She has always been a favorite-actress AND character. You are MOST definitely in the minority here. I love Blair too but she has certainly had her moments, as has Carly! Every girl on the soaps is shrieking & obnoxious once in a while, ha!

You are so wrong… your point of view, which you are entitled too, is certainly not mine. Tea is the best !!!

That’s not a very nice thing to say about tea…………………..I like both Tea & Blair…You are totally wrong about Tea……………………….I like John McBain a lot ….

I don’t think Tea is a B-t-h…That’s my opinion………………

Either do I.

I just know I could have done without the character of Starr coming over I am telling you and I hate being mean but her scenes are like nails going down a chalkboard. Her facial expressions everything for me personally I just mute the sound button or FF. A suggestion take acting classes please!! I felt the whole scenes with the gun and Sonny was cheesy. Just make it stop I hate she is getting so much air time and now with Tea and Todd coming to town that is all we will see. Concerning John McBain he even said ME that they did not really want to write for he and Natalie, personally I liked Natalie when she was with the character Christian.

I toally disagree with your comments about OLTL cross overs to GH……….Seems like you didn’t like OLTL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There’s nothing wrong with her acting………..I keep the sound button ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And she doesn’t need acting classes…And it wasn’t CHEESY when she had the gun on Sonny..Everyone get’s their turn on the air time comment…I don’t remember John saying that at all. And John belongs with Natalie.. They are soul mates & they have a baby boy together…Never liked Christian w./ Natalie….Natalie & john alway’s had that special connection… From day one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I miss OLTL & all the actors & actresses …And my favorites..I enjoy seeing them on GH………………… Aren’t you being a bit harsh………Did you like OLTL???

I don’t know where they found the baby who played Liam, but he looks so much like ME. The casting of John, Nat and then Liam, was through the roof!! The baby even connected so well w/ME, so comfortable w/each other. It was funny during the whole paternity thing at the time. I’m sitt’n there and thinking huh, not John’s, looks just like him:)

Michael Easton made a few comments about he and Melissa Archer taking so long to get back together in an interview with Michael Logan! Yes I did like OLTL but no I was never a big fan of Starr and I feel she is a weak actress everyone has their favorites she just was never one of mine.

I still don’t think so.. I don’t remember the comments about michael easton intterview…Don’t know who michael logan is….I have some that weren’t my faviortes either…Aren’t you being a bit harsh on Starr………..

So depressing that people in 2012 are praising a show like GH, where a man slept with a mentally ill woman; where an alleged rape victim has to worry about upsetting her HUSBAND; where weak, fragile, delicate wimmens cry and pray to be saved by their big, strong boyfriends; where mental illness is played for entertainment value and comedy; where mobsters still swallow up every single day and women fawn over them.

You people are setting back the women’s movement at least 40 years. And it really is very sad.

I wish Ken Corday had the insight/balls to hire Frank/Ron before GH did.They are the best producer, writer team since Paul Rauch and Harding Lemay during “Another World’s” Golden years. I can’t stop watching GH since they took over! Instead of DVRing GH and forcing myself to watch it (or skipping it altogether)- I can;t wait to see what the writers have come up with next.
Days, however, is in BIG trouble. I don’t understand why Corday, who owns his own show and does not have the same production limitations as other producers, can be so shortsighted. The only interesting storyline on Days was the gay /Will Horton coming out plot. If you don’t watch Days, words cannot describe how much that have screwed up that storyline. It’s like they came up with rich emotional circumstances with characters that we have loved for years- the very recipe for riveting, compelling soap opera. And then- they dropped the ball. Now Will comes on intermittently, and the whole story now seems just plain contrived. It is SO disappointing. Especially since they replaced the Will Horton story with BORING, UNWATCHABLE drivel. Believe or not, GH fans, Days actually has had a week long story arc, consisting of 5 MAIN character caught in a safe house before a bomb goes off. Well, since only one of the 5 has been fired from the show, and she just finished filming her final scenes now (the show tapes over 2 months in advance)- guess what happens? After 5 days of “suspense”- everyone is just fine. Do they think Days viewers are morons? I suppose they do. However, during this vital, important time for soap opera survival, I’m surprised Ken Corday is not more proactive and astute in his attempts to save his own show. The problem with Days is NOT the actors (even though they insist on hiring, firing, re-hiring, and then re-firing their veteran actors- I give poor Lisa Rinna another 2 months tops on this go round.)The problem with Days is that Corday needs to hire a producer and writing team with actual talent and soap opera instincts. Soap viewers want to watch emotional, and sometimes over-the-top stories with their favorite characters.
Sorry, I know this is a GH article I’m reacting to. But I’m jealous- I want Days to have the same shot at survival as GH is currently getting. However, that chance becomes increasingly remote the longer Days refuses tell authentic, compelling soap stories. Maybe, just maybe, Frank and Ron can spare a few hours during their workweek and offer some consulting services for the idiots that run Days. If not, that damn hourglass is gonna run out of sand in a hurry.

i was a huge g.l. fan and when the light went out i moved onto oltl. i moved onto g.h only because of the oltl crossover. i have been watching g.h since the day oltl went off the air. i must say when i first started watching the show i thought it was terrible and wondered why abc cancelled oltl instead of g.h. i kept watching because i knew it could only get better once the oltl people hit port charles. well i was right, i think the show is great and cant wait to watch the next episode. i am loving john mcbain and can’t wait for tea’ to arrive in p.c. keep carly with johnny, he is so fine. john mcbain is fine too and i like him with sam, they are good together and i don’t mean as brother and sister.
keep g.h alive its the best soap on tv.

Did anyone actually see this promo broadcast on ABC? I am wondering if ABC is doing anything to actively promote GH.

I am so sick and tired of people wanting Frisco and Felicia. That was from a long time ago and frankly Felicia is a terrible actress. Move forward people stop begging for the past to return. I love the show now but it was horrible before Frank and Ron took over. I wake up every day and can’t wait to see GH. That is a sign of a great show. To me it is the best show ABC has on the air. By the way, Felicia has not aged well, just saying. I want her to go away with Mac (unnecessary character). Anna can be the chief and Mcbain under her. Ha ha I am not a writer nor will I tell any of them what to do.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.

What do you think about the poignant statement offered up by the late David Gail’s mother, Mary Painter? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spinelli Serenades Maxie Then They Kiss! Are you in Favor of a ‘Spixie’ Reunion?

Spixie fans finally got their wish, sort of, on Thursday’s February 22nd episode of ABC’s General Hospital.

While Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have been each others orbit and married to other people, have had children, and been each other’s best friends, it’s apparent that they belong together, or do they?

In story, Spinelli took to the stage on Karaoke night when he, Maxie, Cody (Josh Kelly) and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) went out together.  When Spinelli sang, it featured a touching solo performance by Bradford Anderson, where Spinelli wears his heart on his sleeve for Maxie.

Maxie is all smiles watching Spinelli sing, and afterwards he walks towards her. The two talk about his living situation and how he would do anything for her. Maxie says she always knows she can count on him. She admits she loves listening to him sing to her, and she loves having him around. Spinelli says he considers her more than a friend. The two eventually share a kiss, but Maxie runs away.

The pick-up of the story happens on next week’s Tuesday, February 27th episode when in teasers, Maxie and Spinelli get closer.

Looking at the history of Spixie: they first got together from 2008-2010 when they were engaged. Then, in 2013 the duo had a one night stand. Next, they dated again in 2015, and flash-forward to 2024, and it looks like Maxie and Spinelli might be willing to try their romantic relationship one more time.

So, do you hope Spixie gets back together, or do you want Maxie and Spinelli with some other characters on the Port Charles canvas? Let us know. But first, check out the scene where Spinelli sings to Maxie below.
