TODAY: General Hospital Marks Its 55th Anniversary With Special Episode!

While GH officially turns 55-years-young on Sunday April 1st, it is serving up its special anniversary today for fans of the ABC daytime drama series. General Hospital continues to be the longest running soap currently on television.

As for what’s on tap in today’s episode look for: walks down memory lane, nostalgia, a return from the one and only Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) and some more surprises, and a song from Ned (Wally Kurth),

The episode will not only honor the rich history of the show, but also will move current story forward, much of which centers around an event that Sonny (Maurice Benard) has planned for this father, Mike (Max Gail) in hopes of helping his dad, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, to recall some important memories.

How will all play out? Stay tuned.

Now in the comment section below, send your congratulations to the cast, crew, creatives, and behind the scenes personnel for this incredible accomplishment of five and a half decades of soapy entertainment on General Hospital.

Nothing Frank does honors the “rich history” of GH. he has decimated the show, kicked Vets to the curb, even am icon like Genie. Almost all the male leads are gone and replaced by Frank’s hires. Howarth, Easton, DeVry, James Patrick Stuart, Billy Miller, Matt Cohen, Wes Ramsey, now whoever this Chase guy is… I mean seriously, it’s a joke already.

It isn’t GH, hasn’t been since Frank took over. I won’t be watching the anniversary show as I rarely watch these days anyway.

I stopped at ‘much of which centers around an event that Sonny’. I just can’t with this show. The moral center of the show, the lead, is now a mobster who killed AJ Quartermaine. What happened to the show being about a hospital. Back in it’s glory days, GH, centered around the hospital. Even in the hey days of Luke and Robert and all of their crazy adventures, Steve Hardy and everyone that worked there, were still present, a lot. And also, the fact that Genie Francis was shoved out the door, still stings. I will not be watching this… Read more »

Congrats to GH–and keep on going. Hope the episode is something special, although a focus on Sonny is not encouraging. Lucy Coe and Ned Quartermaine are always fun.

I hope this episodes focuses on the history of the show and the characters who helped make the show great and keep it on air for all these years! Anna, Jason, Elizabeth, Scotty, Lucy, Bobbie, Monica and Ned should all be front and center! I am sick of Frank Valentini only using/catering to “his people”! Especially the overrated Kelly Monaco and all of Frank’s many, many, way too many new hires! This episode should be for the long time viewers – the ones Frank usually ignores! I hope today will be good! Under Frank’s tenure we see too many stories… Read more »

I really don’t like the dumb fact that Lulu was brainwashed into saying Franco was her attacker. Writers/Owners need to do better. No one is happy about this, you are screwing up a very good show with these stupid twist. Many viewers are already walking away and you all are pushing the rest away. Please fix this, leave Franco ALONE. And focus on all the clues and weirdness Kevin/Ryan is leaving behind. Thank you

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
