This Week's GH Promo: "Guess Who's Back?" – Watch The Video!

Courtesy/ABC

ABC has released this week’s promo for General Hospital, and if you put the pieces together, you may figure out who the voice over narrator is talking about.  Or, is it just a red-herring to throw viewers off?  Time will only tell, but here’s what to look for as clues in the promo – the Jason/Bernie crime scene, coupled with Sam’s voice saying, “Don’t assume he is gone.” Next, we hear Monica saying, “If anyone should find out you’re alive ….”, and we see a man walking in the dark in what appears to be leather jacket! The promo ends with Patrick (who probably is talking about Robin at this point) stating, “People just don’t come back from the dead!”

So as we know, Sean Kanan is set to return to General Hospital next week!  Steve Burton’s last airshow was yesterday.  What do you think is going on here?  Is Kanan going to be a very much alive A.J.?  A replacement for Burton’s Jason? Are we talking about someone else completely showing up out of the blue?

Watch the General Hospital promo after the jump, and then weigh-in!

I think if Kanan were replacing Burton, Frank and ABC wouldn’t be so secretive about it. Plus, that move would be a horrible one. I’d rather him back as AJ because he wouldn’t fit as Jason. Plus, not a fan of SK anyway!

I think the “Return” is AJ and Robin, officially!

I was told when I left a comment on another website that no one other than Steve Burton could ever play his role.Couldn’t disagree more!But they’ll do what they want to do anyway regardless of what any fan might think!

Wishful thinking here but I wish they would surprise us again and bring back Tristan Rogers. This Duke storyline is ridiculous but makes even less sense with Luke involved and not Robert!

Patrick wouldn’t have that reaction to AJ as he wouldn’t even know who he is. We know it isn’t steve burton. Robin couldn’t just up and come back alone out of a coma. I am all for replacing Jason. Steve wasn’t fired. He was tired of playing Jason and he split so I have no problem with another playing his part. I am not going to sit and mourn a guy who didn’t want to be there and I really hate it when people write they aren’t watching the show anymore like he was forced out. If they mystery person… Read more »

as much as i have enjoyed watching Steve playing Jason all these years, i hate to say it, but you are right…he walked away from a role he has played many years…i can understand how sometimes you feel you need a change, i am working at my job 35 years, but i’m not walking away (even if many times i would love to)…it was his choice to leave and i would have no problem if they recast him as long as it was someone with the same dynamics and screen presence and connections with his co-stars…i just think if he… Read more »

Only Steve can play Jason. Although he was portrayed as a hit man, he came across as a caring and loving person. I for one would hate to see someone else play Jason,

Everyone knows it is AJ and looks like Monica has known all along he was alive was he not in some kind of trouble when he fell down the staircase of course that was Billy Warlock playing him then a total miscast. And people no one is mad at Seve Burton he sold his house chose to move on they left an opening for him if he wanted to come back. End of story and let the man have some peace the economy alone is making people move out of California plus he has stated he did not want to… Read more »

ITA, This is very likely. I remembered a scene where Monica was talking to AJ’s (Lifeless) Body. So she could have hidden AJ to keep him safe. That is her voice in the promo. The scene of Patrick aired Last week when Anna Told Patrick that she thought Robin was alive.

I agree. I hate Duke. What a has been!!!! He can not act because his face is so pumped up with botox and the eye lift was a botched job!!!!! Joe Scully was hot!!!! It was a shame to dump Joe Scully a mega hottie who can act for the expressionless, llifeless Duke!!!! Today, Joe Scully had more personality dead than Duke does alive!!!!! What a waste!!!!!! I love Steve Burton and I will miss him but I will miss Joe Scully just as much and he was on the Port Charles Landscape for such a short time!!!! I think… Read more »

This is Duke is not the same Duke I used to love. This Duke is more like Ian McAllister from Days and I didn’t like him. Is it possible that too much time has lapsed for his character to be significant in PC? Sean Kanan looks like Steve Burton so who knows if they recast? Like someone said before, GH has to scramble to fill this role since Steve vacated it. Can’t blame the actor though, he was over LA and can’t blame the show for wanting to continue with the character who still has more story to tell. We’ll… Read more »

I agree. New writers intrepretation. If they’re going to bring back a character from the dead then I wish they would at least respect the character’s personality traits. Who would want THIS guy to be with Anna??

Maybe it’s not really Duke? I didn’t watch when Duke was on before – but man, I can’t stand him now. I FF thru much of his stuff.

Ces
Guest

Why even bring him back if it’s not Duke? Honestlly, I think the character has been gone too long and now they’ve made him so nasty that he’s hard to care about.
I don’t remember this character being as bad as he is now, but it’s been awhile; perhaps I need a refresher on why Anna fell in love with him in the first place!

Trammell

I totally disagree, I think Duke being back is a stroke of genius, and I’m glad they are keeping him as a bad guy! I’ve been sick of Jason for years, glad to see the canvas open up and less of the Sonny/Jason show.

Ces
Guest

He just reminds me more of Ian McAllister on Days than he does of Duke Lavery; the Duke I remember anyway. I’d like to root for the ol Duke & Anna but the writers are making that impossible right now.

I do agree with you on not making it a Sonny/Jason show or a Carly show for that matter …. no one should hog up screen time unless it’s Tony Geary 🙂

Linda Dowell
Guest
Linda Dowell

Why can’t it be Steve Burton ? I read one time where he might fly into town to work – and they aren’t individually on enough now to have that be impossible.

I hope so, anyway…..sigh. I’m sure not crazy about the time being wasted on Duke, that evil incarnate, and RC has finally disappointed me with getting rid of Scully – when he was so great with Monica.

Sad – I thought I was on a great GH wonder experience lol!

Ces
Guest

well, he just left the show and sold his house in LA – why would he want to fly back & forth? He’ over it.

Linda Dowell

$$$$$. He left before for a couple of years – and then came back with long hair lol. I’m sure if he could fly into LA twice a month and do a bunch of scenes and then go back to Nashville he’d do it – unless he ends up with a new job – maybe he’s going to be with Jonathan on Nashville.

I’m very angry about the way Jason was written off. Steve/Jason deserved to be able to have air time with all the characters JAason interacts with. The fans deserved to have more time with the Jason’s new family- and for the baby to be found to be Jason’s before he left. And his leaving should have been something better written. A true story- like leaving the mob, or trying to find Robin or something where either Steve or someone else as Jason could come back- in a way that is not insulting to the viewer. Good bye GH, I’ve had… Read more »

I wanted Jason to know Danny was his baby too, and hate missing those scenes. However, I think your anger is misdirected. Steve chose to leave which I imagine was a surprise and created much work to be re-written and planned, and probably not enough time for what we wanted, before Steve left.

I’ll miss SB, but I’m more concerned about this ridiculous storyline of Duke Lavery’s return. 🙂

Why would they bother shooting Jason and throwing him in the water if they planned to recast him right away? It’s gotta be AJ.

The lady who dropped the cup is Monica and who she saw at her door was A.J, back from the dead..
It has nothing to with Jason ..
(and with Patrick it is about Robin ..

I agree. Plus AJ returning would definitely put Carly on edge so it makes sense to show her in the promo – be it Jason being presumed dead or AJ returning from the dead.

Well in OLTL one Todd was replaced with another Todd….Plus they haven’t found Jason’s body…Hmmmm!!!!!!! Don’t you find that an opening for something unexpected!!!!
The mystery where’s Jason’s body if they can’t find it???? My idea is his body drifted somewhere on land & someone found him & is taking care of him………It’s happen before on the soaps………….

I think Sean Kanan will be back as AJ, as it should be. There is only one Jason (imo), and that is most definitely Steve Burton. Good promo though – maybe misleading, but definitely intriguing.

I think they want to throw us on a little “wild duck hunt,” as Ricky Ricardo would say. The man in the dark is either Jason or AJ and the woman in the boots is trying to lead us to believe it is Robin.

I heard Robin calls the house and Emma answers, so she is adding to the mystery for the fall storylines.

I’m interested in who this Sabrina really is too. I have heard she could be a plant for Duke or Anna’s believed-to-be-dead daughter, Leora Hayward. It is all very interesting.

I think that Sean will be probably be coming back as ” JASON” and not as A.J…. but
how ever anybody’s guess is as good as mine.. anyways I’ll surely miss Steve Burton as Jason Morgan on the show.. and wish him the good luck !

they need to bring back emily!!! and ya know rember monicas daughter dawn? she was ALSO KILLED [another stupid move] ,a good story would be dawn wasnt realy her kid but a conwoman who came to care for the q”s wich would mean her REAL kid is alive!!! somewhere…..and bring on elizbeths dad jeff webber he and monica where married at one point…giving monica a story and a love interest…..

That’s be nice. I’ve always felt bad for Monica, because the previous regime killed off all her family. I also felt bad because Jason didn’t have much to do with her. I’m hoping that the show can finally move away from Sonny and the mob and find a new pulse, pun intended. Long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

A.J faked his death, monica knew, she calls him to tell him Jason is dead. He comes back to town, agianst her advice. she kept quite to keep her son alive.

Hopefully, today’s episode (with Monica looking at pictures of Jason and SK’s AJ in the family album) will finally put to rest all of the silly rumors about SK being a Jason recast. First of all, even though I’ve never been much of a fan of the character, Jason is too iconic a role to be recast and FV and RC know it. Secondly, it’s been repeatedly stated that the door is being left open for SBu to return if or when he chooses. I’m looking forward to AJ’s storyline.

I know Steve walked away. He was tired. He played Jason “on and off” , mostly on, for about 20 years. He said he loves the show, his co-workers, the entire staff and all his fans, but he needed a break. He has a couple of young kids to help raise and wanted to spend time with them. When you work on a daily soap, you often have to work late hours. He needs to be there for his kids. Maybe he’ll get tired of whatever he’s going to do in Tennessee and come back. I hope they don’t replace… Read more »

Glad abut afew things. Glad that Jason is dead, and hoes that he stays that way. Also glad that it is Monica Quartermaine that will expedite the return of her son Alan Jr. I always wished that Jason woulda died instead of AJ . With Jason and Edward dead the Quartermaines are facin extinction. With that, I am glad that AJ is coming back to have scenes with Monica, Tracy, Carly, Sonny, andmost importantly Michael. Jason and Robin should stay dead. That would be on my wishlist. Also I would let Heather eliminate Liv as well. That girl is just… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL 15000th Episode: Laura Faces Being Ousted as Mayor as Port Charles Bands Together in Support of Her

Finally, after many preemptions, General Hospital’s 15,000the episode aired on Wednesday. In it and front and center in the standalone episode was GH icon, Genie Francis (Laura).

In story, after a scathing op-ed is run in The Invader from a group of citizens called “The Friend of Port Charles”, they take aim at Mayor Laura Collins and want a recall to replace her. When trying to figure out who was behind the story, Laura’s friends and the citizens of the town, band together to keep her from being ousted and to figure out who would attack her in the press like this.

That sets up a few sentimental flashback clips featuring the three current longest-running members of the cast, Genie, Kin Shriner (Scott) and Jackie Zeman (Bobbie).  Viewers get a glimpse of Scotty and Laura’s wedding, and then Bobbie’s contentious and duplicitous side when she fought for the love of Scotty against a teenaged Laura.

As Laura tries to determine who is behind the op-ed, Curtis (Donnell Turner) gets a lead from Ms. Wu (Lydia Look) that Laura’s half-brother, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) is behind it.  Laura then heads to Pentonville to confront Cyrus.  She asks if he’s the brains behind “The Friends of Port Charles”.

Cyrus insists he is only an advisor. He goes on to say that this is a group of people who are disillusioned by the way she is running the town.  Cyrus gets angry and vengeful, and emotional, when saying the police department is corrupt and how ELQ and Cassadine Industries gets tax breaks at the expense of less fortunate people, etc.  Laura can’t figure out if these people in the ‘friends’ group have such high moral value why would they hire a criminal, like him, as an advisor?

Renault goes on to say that it’s up to God and preaches she needs to be less self-righteous.  Laura throws back to Cyrus that where was God in that scathing op-ed, that he did filled with such hate?  Laura then forgives him and walks out, which stuns Cyrus.

Later, Scotty in front of Laura, Bobbie, Anna (Finola Hughes), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Lucy (Lynn Herring), proposes to Liesl (Kathleen Gati), but she turns down his marriage proposal.  Liesl feels they have a good thing going , so why mess it up with a marriage at this point. The two kiss.

In addition, Laura meets up with Maxie (Kirsten Storms), who are visiting an institutionalized Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).  Maxie brings her some cosmetics from Deception because of the bad lighting in the facility.

The softball game was the throughline of the episode, and at the end, we saw the payoff, when all the characters converged on Charlie’s giving their support to Laura, who says she is ready to write her rebuttal.

Then in a voice-over from Laura, she speaks to the essence of Port Charles and its residents which included: that they have a strong community that she is proud to be a part of it and she speaks to her legacy over generations.  Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) proposes a toast to Laura, as she notes that if she loses the recall then so be it, adding that if the person who replaces her is a Port Charles lifer, like she is, then the town will continue to prosper.

So, what did you think of the 15,000 episode milestone episode? Did you enjoy the performance of Genie Francis? Did you like the way much of the cast was utilized, or did you feel otherwise? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH’s Finola Hughes, Marcus Coloma & Josh Swickard Talk On 15,000th Episode Milestone

The juggernaut that is ABC’s General Hospital, is marking yet another accomplishment in its storied 59-year-history.  The iconic soap opera is set to air on Wednesday, June 22nd (unless preempted), its 15,000th episode.

As part of the celebration, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna Devane), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas Cassadine) and Josh Swickard (Chase), who all appear in the standalone episode, chat with Michael Fairman to mark the occasion.

During the conversation now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Finola and Marcus, and later Josh, who logged on later while at Disneyland, discuss: their beginnings on GH from landing their respective roles, who in the cast perhaps most intimated them, at first, and what it has meant to be part of the legacy of General Hospital.  In addition, Finola, Marcus, and Josh reveal some of their more challenging storylines, and more.

Photo: ABC

Later, the trio each gives us a tease of what’s to come now that Nikolas has slept with Esme (Avery Pohl), what lies ahead for Anna and her love-interest Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and Josh talks on working with his on-screen love-interest, Amanda Setton (Brook Lynn Quartermaine).

Watch for a special appearance by GH’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) within the interview, as we do a deep-dive of being part of the ensemble cast.

We also take a moment to send out our condolences to Kristina (Felicia) and Jack Wagner (Ex-Frisco) on the passing of their son, Harrison, and how you can donate to the scholarship fund in his honor.

Check out our GH 15K interview with Finola, Marcus, and Josh below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more upcoming features, interviews, and upcoming Daytime Emmy red carpet coverage.

NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, Shares Insight Into 49th Annual Daytime Emmys Telecast

The Daytime Emmys are just three days away when the gold statuettes are handed out on the 49th Annual Awards Show telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th (9pm EST).

Ahead of the ceremonies, NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, spoke to Variety to give some details of what viewers may be on the lookout for when the broadcast returns, with an all-live presentation for the first time since 2019, and through the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused it to pivot to virtual ceremonies for the last two years.

Photo: NATAS

Now, Sharp shares that with the previously announced realignment that will see Children’s & Family programming having its own Emmy that, “The telecast will be very squarely focused on the dramas, talk shows and game shows.”  He also adds: “It will be a bit more focused.”

With an audience present this year, Sharp is counting on the live element to heighten the awards night fun and drama. expressing, “Hopefully that  excitement conveys to the viewers.  I think you’ll see us try to put a lot of that interaction on display.”

This year’s Daytime Emmys will feature 14 categories which Sharp hopes streamlines the broadcast and keeps it to a tight two-hour celebration of daytime.

Previously, NATAS and the TV Academy (which administers the Primetime Emmys), decided to move away from day part distinctions and focus more on genre. In addition, streaming series featuring soap notables, such as Studio City and The Bay, will be competing for nomination slots in September’s Primetime Emmys.

So, looking forward to this year’s Daytime Emmy telecast? Comment below.
