Michael, is the event open to the public or was it something you had to purchase tickets to in advance?

I tried to log on to see the live stream and it says you have to purchase tickets. $15 for non members and $10 for members. If you want to purchase, it says tickets sales for the event is closed and check with the box office 🙁

I would mostly like to thank them for a job well done, and keep up the good work to the cast and crew! Then will Kristen be Serena or Kristina, Roger be Steve or a Cassadine, and will Micheal be Jimmy Lee and ELQ heir, or maybe play Jason so they can continue to pair him with Sam?

Michael do you know if they will have this on the Paley site to view in the future? I went on their site and they don’t say? I will be watching for as much as I can tonight. Love the Paley sessions with the shows!

This was an extra act of GH, and so much fun. When the host talked about all the actors who are not around any more, it was really touching how affected every one was. Just remembering Edward and Lila and their love, was so touching. The Paley center should do more of these get togethers from time to time. Many fans would appreciate hearing the actor tell his or her story. Frank and Ron have energized GH with their creativity. Bravo to them!…

Thanks, Michael, for sharing the link. I actually watched the live stream earlier. Very interesting indeed. RC mentioned about populating the Quartermaines and then at the end he said there is a new character in town that is related to one of these people here in the panel. Uhmm, makes me wonder whether he was referring to Roger Howarth being a Quartermaine. Crossing fingers.

I have watched many Paley events and yet of course… this was my favorite… because it was GH!!! Thank you for telling us about this one… Michael! It’s about time GH had one! OLTL, Y&R and Days have all had one or more in the past… along with other soaps no longer with us. The moderator, William Keck, did a great job and appeared to be a fan. What a treat… to see this and learn more about our show and cast and writers and crew!!! The questions were great and the answers/stories were such fun! Especially Jane and Tony’s stories! Loved hearing so much from Ron about the writing and a fun spoiler. The code names were fun… especially Bob for Faison! I hope that they capture this show and post it on their site and hopeully it will get to Hulu… would love to watch again! Too bad they couldn’t have had longer and more time with some of the cast that didn’t get to say as much and more time for the audience and socal media questions would have been great!!! The woman in the audience that has watched for 42 years every day through family illnesses and such was one of many of us who have shared years with these people and this show and yes… they do become something like an extended family… especially through the difficult times in our lives or when we are alone! Why ABCD and others don’t understand what it means to some of us to have and to continue to have these shows is beyond me. They have such an opportunity now especially to continue with 50 years and find ways to blend that with all the new social media and technologies, and platforms is beyond me. No other shows on TV share the consistent involvement with generations of fans… even if they had to miss out on chunks back when you couldn’t record or watch on demand or watch on-line.. we kept coming back and we kept being invested in these characters and their stories… through it all. I choose to hope that GH is with us for many many more years! GH is simply the best… better than all the rest and I am such a fan and will continue to be!!! I know for the cast, writers and crew that in the entertainment world that it has a less than respected image to be associated with this genre… but we are grateful and very apprecaitive of those that stay with it or come back to it… because we love it so much more than the prime time shows that come and go or the TV movies or the major movies… GH and the others are with us throughout so much and we are very thankful for them being with us and providing us with so much!!! Thank you to evryone at GH!!! Thank you especially to FV and RC for revitalizing GH… it really is must see… Read more »

GH Preview – Week of June 25, 2018

This week on General Hospital, after a rather unsettling sound is heard from another cell at Ferncliff, who could be in there? That is the question Jason (Steve Burton) asks Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) from last Friday’s cliffhanger. Will the mystery person be revealed?  Meanwhile, Jason’s janitorial gig may be up thanks to Mary Pat (Patricia Bethune).  Looks like Carly (Laura Wright) may have to go it alone.

Then, look for Michael (Chad Duell) to try to entrap Nelle (Chloe Lanier) at her own game as he finally comes to terms with that he must be the one to save his mother.

Elsewhere, will Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) be hot on Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) trail and find out that she has been complicit in Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) kidnapping?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
