Tyler expressed his enthusiasm for working with head honcho Frank Valentini and the entire GH team when he related to SOD: “It took us a few months to work out the details, but I signed last week. I’m really happy about it. I love the show and I’m having a great time.”

Actually, I think that Nicolas and Sabrina might make an interesting couple. I’m not really sold on her relationship with Patrick. Another possibility would be Britt. I know there are people who love his relationship with Elizabeth, but there’s a sense of entitlement with Nicolas and it comes out in a big way with Elizabeth. I’m also a little tired of women dating multiple men in one family.

great news! love him and as more leave…Steve Burton, Brandon Barash, Scott Reeves…Bradford Anderson going off contract…it’s nice to have a familiar great character come back on board!

I still kinda like the Liz/AJ pairing so I’m curious to see where that’ll go. Unless…they can find someone else great for AJ because I really want to see him treated fairly this time ’round.

Back to the question? Yay! for Tyler!

I would like Nikolas to be a handsome Casanova :).
He doesn’t need to be hooked to anyone, he should play the field and have great adventures with all types of women ..
GH needs one man, just one, who doesn’t tie up his life with one woman, and go through all the trauma of a love that will surely have tons of problems and end..(they all do)
I would like Nikolas to not get attached..

YAY!!! I cried when he appeared as a surprise a few weeks back – I’m so glad he’s back, he’s just one of the real ones.

Great news – thank you!

I’m so happy he signed! Love him! I hope they bring on someone new for a love interest!

Could NOT be more thrilled over this development! Tyler is a beautiful actor and Nikolas is a legacy character that can work in so many facets on the show. I am LOVING the Nik/Liz/AJ triangle and love how Ron Carlivati has written for and how Tyler and Becky have played this round of the Nikolas and Elizabeth relationship. If it had been done like this the first time around, it probably wouldn’t have offended so many fans. Also love how Nik has been interacting with his family like Laura, Alexis, and Lulu. Bravo GH, great job!

I couldn’t agree more. When they first hinted at a Liz/Nik pairing (when Lucky was still around) I could see the chemistry. They just went about it the wrong way. They ruined what could have been an awesome pairing. I hope they, the writers, will do it right this time. I like AJ & Liz, but I have a feeling they will do a Carly & AJ thing since Carly & Franco will not make sense at the moment. Now, if only they will break Sabrina & Patrick up. That pairing just feels icky.

Good news but now gh needs to show more of Laura, Scotty, Duke, Anna, Lucy, Kevin and Leslie! Then it will be great again! Would like to see Nik paired with Ava for awile…i feel they could have great chemistry…then maybe later he could hook up with Liz but i like Liz with A.J. at the moment!

BTripp

Never thought about him with Ava! Maybe an Ava/Nik/Liz/AJ foursome kinda thing.

You are spot on with that comment. Give us the characters we love.

I was thinking Tracy- she needs her great love and he is a handsome prince— and thought they worked well together during the whole relish thing. Know it is out there, but really like to see Tracy get her dream.

Ces

I agree!! GH brings Genie Francis back, the most beloved character on this show to do what exactly???

jimh
jimh

I know Laura is supposed to be on her honeymoon with Scotty but why cant they show them having romantic moments like Scotty wine and dine her, take her dancing or just walking along a moonlite beach? Im very much for romance…something lacking in all soaps including the two online reboots.

ces
ces

I agree Jim, if they were trying to sell Scotty & Laura again, at least SHOW why she fell in love with him again. Then again, I don’t believe she did fall in love, just felt convenience with him, but surely they didn’t bring her back for this.

There definitely has been a serious lack of romance on Days & GH both, agreed.

That’s great about Tyler staying on as Nicholas. He is very good at his job. Thank you to all the cast and crew and everyone else who are striving to keep General Hospital alive. I have been watching it since I was about 15.That’s about 40 years. It has always been a great show. Are they ever going to bring Robin back?

AJ
AJ

I think that decision is Kimberly McCollough’s. I think TPTB have said if she wants to come back, she can.

Anyone BUT Liz please!! There’s something really sleezy about taking up with the love of your brother’s life- Liz seems to know this as she pursues her relationship with AJ. There are a few single ladies such as Maxie, Samantha, & Christina- or maybe bring someone new & exciting to the show. But, leave the trainwreck that was Nik & Liz just where it is- a mistake in the past!!!

donna

christina would be related.maybe sam would work

If Patrick and Sabrina don’t work out she might be a good match for Nicolas. She’s got that pure-of-heart innocent thing that Emily had.

Thrilled to hear that Tyler (Nikolas) is staying in Port Charles. He has always been a favorite of mine. I like him with Elizabeth, and I do think they will probably have the Elizabeth/Nikolas/AJ triangle play out a bit, but whether or not they ultimately pair him with her, we shall see. I think he would work well romantically with most any one. I just hope he does not end up with Brit (aka Britch), although that could be an interesting move, as he certainly will not take her nonsense.

Great news, he was missed. I think him and Laura Wright have good chemistry; why not try him and Carly? BTW all, Sam and Nicholas are related!

I like Elizabeth with AJ, so personally I would like to see him with Tracy. She needs her great love and I think a handsome prince fits the bill. I know she is older, but I think there was some chemistry there– or am I way out on a limb here? Does anyone else think Nicholas and Tracy would be good match?

jimh

I think it could work with him and Tracy…i liked their scenes together…but id like to see him first with either Ava or Connie!

I love him and I wish the great couple of gh would come back. emily!!!!!!!!!!! I still wish emily and nik would somehow get together and somehow bring her back. I just loved them…..

Sally

I like Liz and AJ together – so maybe Carly – she is older but she needs a man right now!

I think Nikolas should be paired with a new character that has a familiar face. I thought he had a lot of chemistry with Sarah Brown when they shared a short storyline several years ago. Sarah is such a chameleon she could easily come back as a third character and possibly even play Claudia’s long lost sister. With so many high profile vacancies left at GH Sarah Brown is exactly what the show needs to fill the gaping whole it has on the powerhouse front and the chemistry between Sarah and Tyler is undeniable.

Hello….. Nikolas cannot be with Sam. They are cousins or something like that. Alexis is Sam’s Mother & is she is Nikolas’s cousin.. Creepy! Can’t stand Elizabeth, never have been able to stomach her. Sorry 🙁 I loved him with Emily & with Courtney. Carly, no way…. Nikolas is classy, even though she tries, Carly is not. Maxie is too young for him I think. Sabrina maybe. A real twist would be Brit since she is Faison’s daughter. Wow wouldn’t Helena have a royal cow with that???? Hmmmm, Sabrina, someone new or Brit would be my vote. This could be interesting. Have Brit straighten her crap out & start a relationship with someone besides Patrick. I think underneath her Mother’s Witchy influence, she might actually be decent. We’ll have to wait & see though.

They’ve never revealed the father of Britt’s baby. What if she and Nicolas had a one night stand and she has no idea who he is. I don’t think they’ve had scenes together yet. That would be a hoot.

Patrick
Patrick

before I read everyone’ post – I really like the triangle of Nicholas – Liz – AJ.

quite frankly… i like the big loveable Lug AJ…. I think he makes a great father, as well.

so… this will certainly heat things up for this threesome…. and honestly…

GH needs some passion, romance… and intrigue again.

C’mon GH… show us Anna and Duke… and…. Mac and Felicia… last i saw.. Mac was telling Felicia they didn’t need to get married to be married…. C’mon… this is love and romance.

Sue

Welcome back Tyler, but does that mean that Bunheads has been cancelled? 🙁 Loved you on that show too! I like Nik & Liz, but think AJ deserves a break. Now that Steve is gone, how about Olivia & Nik? She’d be a great mom to his son. Connie would be good too, like a second chance at motherhood, but Sonny needs a strong women in his life to ground him. Ava & Luke would be great too! Although I do like Luke w/ Tracy. Right now I see the direction of the writers is to get a younger audience to watch. Lots of teenage romance going on. 🙂

Cat

My first wish if for Elizabeth. No, way with Britt unless she REALLY cleaned her act up! I’m new to the show so I can’t say about any of his past romances. I know one thing for sure she needs to be special. It could be that girl next door scenario or somebody he just met that seems to give him grief.

When is Laura (Genie Francis) going to get a chance to ask her two children how they are both progressing????? Talk about a fractured show! Doesn’t matter who is supposedly on “contract” (as I understand Genie Francis is also), they have very precious screen time. It’s the tweens and teens that are hogging the air. Why???? They are NOT the ones that are watching the show. They are “otherwise engaged.” Why are TPTB so out of touch? Don’t they know their audience is the people who have watched for many years–and are looking–in vain–for the characters they love? Too simple for TPTB to understand that, I guess.

nancy dillingham

The show is no longer GH. It’s filled with characters from other shows whose just come on the show with no background or no connection–or a tenuous one at best– to the GH we have watched so many years. Nothing or no one of substance to identify with or feel empathy for or root for. Everyone of the “new” (from other shows) characters are distasteful, unlikable, or plain mean. That’s not what I tune in to see. We were all duped during the 50th anniversary happenings/bringbacks into believing that our favorite characters were going to be given something to do and be treated with dignity at least. Look what they have done to Laura’s character (dressed Genie Francis in appallingly unflattering clothes and made her empy-headed and dull–the cardinal sin. Pity poor Genie! Why is she always treated so shabbily after helping to save the show and giving so many years in service to the show. Shame! Shame!

please tell me this is true… and most off Tiffany and SEAN coming back would make it even BETTER… Rumorville: According to a tweet from @max_tuneage, John Reilly (Sean Donely) is taping two episodes for GH in mid-July. Apparently, this tidbit comes via Sharon Wyatt (Tiffany Hill). If you recall from our earlier Rumorville items, Sean and Tiffany’s daughter is due to arrive in Port Charles this summer.

This is great news. As a longtime TC fan, it’s gratifying to see him so valued by TPTB. As far as couplings go, I have no real preference. Having said that, though, I wouldn’t mind seeing what kind of chemistry Nikolas and Ava (Maura West) might have.

Love it! I was sad to see him go in the middle of a great story. This is out chance to see the Liz/Nick story play out the right way.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Four: Joss Sings For Oscar, Valentin Takes The Stage, Kevin In Dire ‘Straits’, Ava Waits For Ryan

The conclusion of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 episodes brought with it emotional moments and performances from the stage, and major drama with yet to come ramifications for several people of Port Charles.

After Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) knocked out Kevin and switched places with him, yet again, the serial killer is on the loose at the ball. Later, when Scott (Kin Shriner) is backstage and is upset about Ava’s (Maura West) relationship with Kevin, Scott comes face-to-face with “Kevin” and having enough, tries to grab Scott’s hand to stop him from leaving. But, lo and behold, off comes his prosthetic hand.  Next, Ryan clubs Scott over the head, who now is the only person that saw Ryan at the ball.

Elsewhere, Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) confronts Willow (Katelyn MacMullan), after overhearing her conversation with Diane that she has a child, and he asks here if she was pregnant when she left “Dawn of Day”.  She claims she miscarried their child, but he refuses to believe a word out of her mouth and becomes irate.

Courtesy/ABC

Michael (Chad Duell) saves Willow and warns Shiloh to stay away from her and his family. An out-of-sorts Shiloh heads back to his table where Sam (Kelly Monaco), Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and Brad (Parry Shen) are.  Shiloh informs Sam that he just found out someone had his baby and deceived him.  Lucas and Brad are both alarmed.

The first musical performance of the episode was Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) rendition of Seals & Crofts classic, “Get Closer”.  Wally Kurth and Lisa LoCicero remain one of the endearing duos on the show.

Meanwhile, the question. and of course. the big musical finale hinged on Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), and if she would perform the song she wrote with Oscar (Garren Stitt) at his request and in his honor.  In the best scene of all the ball episodes this year, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds a conflicted Joss outside the ballroom.  She says she thought she was stronger and could do this, but she isn’t.  An emotional Sonny shares with her how Oscar will always be with her, and be OK with whatever choice she makes. Sonny relates it back to Stone and his relationship with him while the young man was living and while he has been deceased.  Maurice Benard and Eden McCoy delivered in this tender scene.

Courtesy/ABC

In the next musical number, Valentin Cassasdine (James Patrick Stuart) attempts to calm down a drunken Nina (Michelle Stafford), who is all out of sorts due to her hatred of Willow.(and perhaps her lust for Jax?), by taking to the stage to perform his number.  This time, Stuart plays the piano and sings “Nothing without You” by Vienna Tang.  And once again, Valentin wowed the audience, and James sang beautifully, as he has each year at the ball.

Still undecided if she can perform, Josslyn worries she’s letting everyone down. Jax (Ingo Rademacher) comes to see her and reassures her, saying she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone, she just needs to follow her heart.

Finally, Josslyn makes the decision to perform, and that she does in the emotional high point of the episode.  As she performs this song about the list of things she and Oscar were planning to do together before the young man died, and how she will carry it with her, she sees Oscar in the back of the ballroom in his tux singing with her and rooting her on.  Kudos to Eden McCoy for being the heartbeat of this year’s ball, along with Lynn Herring, who the ‘ball’ would not be the ball without Lucy Coe,

Courtesy/ABC

As the Nurses’ Ball winds down, Shiloh is becoming unglued, and as Sam tries to calm him down, he tells her she needs to finish her initiation tonight.  He says he needs her to be in the ‘trust’ and he needs her strength.  Oh-oh!  Will Sam go through with this to trap the guy, or are we going to witness a major backfire?

A massive light bulb has gone off in Lucas’ head and he tells Brad he believes Willow and Shiloh are Wylie’s birth parents. Brad doesn’t know what to say, and we all know why!

As Lucy is instructing the clean up crew to take everything down on the stage, the curtains open and Kevin is suspended in midair hoisted up, knocked out, and trapped in a straight-jacket!  Everyone is horrified.  Cut to Ava who is at her safe house preparing to kill Ryan all by herself.  She gets everything in place, while she sips on some booze and waits for Ryan to arrive, and sure enough, we come to the cliffhanger.   Ryan sees Ava from outside the widow.  What will happen next?

So, what did you think of the final installment of this year’s Nurses Ball? What did you think of the performances from Joss, Valentin, and Ned and Olivia? Will Ava kill Ryan, or will someone else do it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first,check out Josslyn’s AKA Eden McCoy’s performance below.

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
