TODAY: John Reilly Tribute Episode Airs on General Hospital

Courtesy/ABC

Friday on General Hospital, it’s time for all of us to say goodbye to the beloved John Reilly and pay tribute to him and the character he portrayed for many years, Sean Donely.

In story, a mystery is woven into the episode, and the story, as Robert (Tristan Rogers), Anna (Finola Hughes), Robin (Kimberly McCullough), Mac (John J. York) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner) as well as Reilly’s real life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, appear.

John Reilly died at the age of 86 back in January of this year and since that time the ABC daytime drama series has promised this installment of the iconic soap opera to honor him, but in very “Sean Donely” style given the character’s history with the WSB and espionage.

The veteran actor appeared on GH in the show’s hey day of the 80’s debuting in 1984 and staying on till 1995 and then making two more appearances in 2008 and 2013.

Watch the promo for today’s GH below.

Now let us know in the comment section if you are looking forward to seeing it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the episode and seeing so many great GH vets. Loved the setting, the eerie hallways, and watching Anna and Felicia have some quality screen time together. The only downer was having Peter Puke scenes interspersed, though Bobbi’s arrival rescued us. A great reminder of GH’s halcyon days.

Only real complaint I have about the episode is the fact that Whiny Heiny was involved at all, even if only for a scene or two. Aside from that, it was very well done, and focused on classic GH characters who actually knew Sean. Didn’t expect to see Tiffany on screen, given her health issues, but it was great that they managed to bring her voice in by telephone. Wouldn’t have been right to not include her in some way. Minor complaints about the people who were NOT there, but should have been. Frisco Jones & Lucky Spencer come to… Read more »

Lucky was not close to Sean, neither was Laura actually but I’m sure she was there in support of Tiffany. Sean and Tiffany left town about a year and a half after Lucky arrived with his parents. Frisco was friends with Sean but given the fact he didn’t show up for his own brother’s (Tony) and daughter ‘s funerals (Georgie), why show up for Sean’s? He’s being consistent.

Dennis M… At first I was worried how GH would handle this. I didn’t want anymore sad goodbyes. So like you I enjoyed it as well. And Frisco is always missing in action. Wouldn’t mind seeing Annie /Caitlin make an entrance into Port Charles. Be definitely not as Lulu.

John Reilly was fantastic as Sean and I remember him a bit with Tiffany and I’m sorry to hear of his passing. And, I’m sorry but I was heavily disappointed in this tribute, the only thing I truly enjoyed the most was the various flashbacks especially at the end with Sean & Tiffany’s wedding! That was a hoot and a holler. The story where most of GH’s veterans hop-skip and jump to County Kerry, Ireland from New York in less than a day… really? (well, it is a 7+hour flight)… But, wouldn’t it have made more sense for the memorial… Read more »

Excellent show! GH always does these tribute episodes well. It was wonderful to see all the vets together, so much of GH’s rich history on the screen at the same time. And I got a kick out of the story they told. It was a nice tip of the cap to the old days of GH, and the type of stories that Sean was involved in for so many years. I’m glad Kristina Wagner decided to return. Felicia was conspicuous by her absence for Maxie’s wedding. She looked great. Loved her scenes with Finola. So much history there. It also… Read more »

I absolutely had no idea who those people were (outside of the regulars)
I had no idea as to what it was about-
It made no sense to me, none at all.

Same for me, but glad the others enjoyed it so much.I had seen J.R on other soaps but wasn’t watching GH at that time. Someone suggested his daughter for a Lulu replacement but I think they are poised for a Dante and Sam pair-up.

Oh, I forgot that Lulu and Dante are no longer married, so it wouldn’t make a difference.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
