UPDATE on Frank Valentini's GH Casting News – "Crossing the T's and dotting the I's"

Courtesy/ABC

On-Air On-Soaps let our soapers know late last week that super exec, Frank Valentini, who brought so much life to Llanview and is now doing the same over at General Hospital, followed up today with another tweet regarding his mysterious bit of casting news he said was coming.

As many of you know, Soap Opera Digest then reported it could come as early as today.  We have been overwhelmed by your passionate responses to our post and thoughts on who could be coming on to the Port Charles canvas in the near future.

However, this afternoon there was an update from Valentini on his Twitter page when he tweeted, “Crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s, the casting news will have to wait for now… keep your fingers crossed!”

So we know everyone wants to know, but in the best interest of making sure the business end of things is sewn up, Valentini let everyone know the status.   So hold on GH fans!  Something clearly is in the works here!  But what?  That is the million dollar question!

IMO Ron and Frank OWE IT to all soap fans to wrap up the bombshell they droped on the very last minute of OLTL and tell us what happened to Victor before ABC axes GH for Katie. She needs more money. IMO They and TSJ lied to us when both said he would not return and its time to make it right.

Petra
Petra

yes, i agree. They left us hanging wanting more, and this is the perfect opportunity to wrap things up…but keep both Todd and Victor on so we can see them interact as brothers…i definitely think that TSJ is a good possibility

barbara t

The reason for the big bombshell was that everyone thought we were going to the net to continue with one life to live when they found out that pp/abc/disney,killed the net idea it was to late to change the story,and those Rats at abc/disney told everyone to get out of the studio to make way for another dopy show.Imho I dont think that Ron and Frank owe us anything they were deceived to and they are trying to put a few of my favorite characters on general hospital,I would love to see the story of 2 todds continue to find out what will happen. something has to be done because todd will be in port charles in may and a murderer cant be running around ,oops I take that back Killers have been walking around port charles for years poor matt couldnt keep them in jail,Thats ok John mcbain knows how to keep people locked up for good.I thought the ending of one life to live was well written, beautiful ,sad ,It was brilliant and ended with class .go to abc.com e mail and tell them you want general hospital to stay and to bring back one life to live or just give agnus nixon the rights to her shows back,Better to give them to her then just throw them in the trash thats what abc/disney did.So to say that ron and frank lied is wrong because they didnt they thought one life to live was to live on ,blame the rat channel there the ones that screwed our shows up and put those stupid shows on for dumb people and for them to line there pockets with more money.abc/disney killed our soaps because of greed nothing more nothing less.

Keith

I am going to have to disagree. I blame Ron & Frank for the lousy end to 43 years. They owe the fans an ending. The prospect park deal never came together and Ron & Frank have been in the business long enough to know what it takes to produce a soap. I wrote on this site back then that pp did not do the things necessary to get OLTL online. Ron & Frank had nine months to wrap things up and they failed. Actually, there was time to make an alternate ending and it was discussed. IMO they owe us and now they have one last chance to make it right before GH is cancelled.

I agree, Vincent Irizarry’s David bringing the “near dead” back to a full life again. He would be the perfect person behind the new “Robin” sighting!!!!

Vincent is not going to GH. I met him at a meet and greet recently and he was asked this and he IS NOT going to GH. He is doing other projects. I have other fans who were there that are on facebook who can confirm this.

Just want you to know that I answered your long standing weekend question this evening about 8pm, and LOST it…. It just clicked off, and went FADE to BLACK…! I was pissed bc I had put much thought into it. I was looking at a program and writing it at the same time between commercials., I couldn’t start it all over again. I will answer it again soon. Good Night. They talking its going to be 29 degree’s tonight, and 30 sumthing tomorrow. Oh well, the Bible says at the end of time we won’t be able to tell the season apart. The tree’s started blooming here in early March and flowers sprouting on March 12th. I took care special care to take notice. I will rewrite it tomorrow or Wednesday.

Its warm here in florida ,went in the pool yesterday,I wonder who our mystery person is ,Hope we find out soon,Im not good when it comes to waiting for something I want it to happen now,I wonder if you will get to read this post something is going on here ,wont let me submit anything I write ,had a hard time even getting to this sight kept saying ERROR.we will see now,here it goes.

barbara t

If helena has robin she could have deep fried her own daughter before the switch, she did kill her, remember that patrick left for a split second how could robin be taken in that short of a time ? who knows ,It will be interesting to find out who has her at least some one does and she is not dead ,Ron and frank must have listened to my pleas that robin cant die.hey if you do win the lottery we can have our own soapnet I will chip in if I win I play 2 times a week,we will show them how to keep a soap channel going .but first I would have to buy one life to live and all my children and give them back to agnus where the stories belong.I guess Frank is still crossing the t’s and dotting the I’s ,Waiting for our mystery soap star is making me nuts ,I hope we hear something soon.Good luck with your lottery ticket I dont play till tomorrow night.

So help me if it has something to do with Morgan Corinthos and a certain actor everyone has been speculating on…I won’t be happy. I love this actor, but I’ve got my reasons for not wanting him on another soap.

who? which actor are you talking about that has to do with the mob? only guy I can think of that would give all the mob guys a run for their money, would be Carlo Hesser!

Oh my I have practically lived on Twitter and Facebook waiting for word . I am so hoping that General Hospital will remain or better yet; AMC and OLTL and GH have been
bought by new network.I would so like to hear a definate ruling on all this. GH has really soared lately and I am, like glued to the television; I love it. My fingers and toes and eyes remain crossed for good news we are all longing for!!!

Please please let it be TSJ.

i just hope it is kassie depavia. she deserves a contract as much as roger howarth and what is todd without his true love blair!

Nikki
Nikki

I am still holding out hope for it to be Trevor St. John, but if it were Lexi Ainsworth, Rick Hearst, or someone like that, I would be thrilled! I rather it not be Vanessa Marcil simply because I don’t see a need for Brenda on the screen especially since Sonny has enough drama. I wouldn’t mind if it were Jonathan Jackson because he is very talented, but Greg Vaughn was my favorite Lucky so I’m not praying for it to be JJ.

Max

How about moving someone big like Erika Slezak over to GH, say as it’s new top administrator? Would love to see her in a soap again. She was such a big part of the backbone on OLTL. I miss seeing her and so many others. Like Rex and Gigi. I waited so long for them to get it together and get married and then the plug was pulled on us fans.

Max
Max

Something else I wanted to say – I have drifted away over the years from GH because of it’s heavy focus on violence as a way to make a living, guns, the mafia. Sonny’s storyline just keeps getting recycled under different names (one year this kid is shot, the next year, something happens to another kid because of his mob life and on and on). GH has lost it’s heart, love is not a primary theme of it anymore. GH needs some more humor (bring on Roxy from OLTL, let her move her hair shop there!), needs some forces of strength and integrity like Victoria Lord’s role had… Incorporate some of that into the story and that might help viewership increase.

david
david

I love all your suggestions. You are right about GH’s violence and repetitive storylines. I would love to see Roxy’s humor and Viki’s integrity integrated into GH. Most of the characters on GH seem ethically challenged or already compromised. I can barely remember that GH used to be about family drama and romance.

lipstickcat

So true! It’s the same old mob crap they had in the 1980s! I’m giving it a try because of the OLTL actors but it’s so boring! If they combine OLTL & GH it would be better.

Susan M.

I agree with you 100%…I miss Viki … She holds everything together……..She was the heart of the OLTL…

Here’s hoping it is a few actors and one of them is Melissa Archer and the other is Genie Francis!

Jackie Zeman??!!! Genie Francis!?

Jill
Jill

It’s not Genie. She signed a 3 year deal with Y&R. Which ABC don’t deserve her now anyway. They didn’t respect her enough to treat her the way they should have when they could have gotten her. I still can’t believe they used her to appear on Oprah when she wasn’t even working for ABC. Then when she said she wanted to basically play a stronger person, she wasn’t offered a job. Would you go back?

dg

ITA Jill. I spoke to Genie on Soap Central live. She said she would go back GH if it were cancelled for the finale if the Y+R brass would loan her out. But she said she was very happy at Y+R and she loves her new role. I love her new character as well despite the fact that I grew up watching her play Laura. ABC never truly respected her. Im glad she’s happy at CBS.

Scott
Scott

It wouldn’t be Genie. She’s in a multi-year contract with Y&R and I’m fairly certain she’s happy there. Plus, the Spencer clan is little to nothing.

at this point almost anyone is icing on the cake, and i’m loving it. Did anyone see GH today? omg, those seen between Liz and little Emma were so beautiful, I don’t know the little actress name who plays emma but WoW she’s turning into some little actress, I was very impress.

Hopefully it will be 2 more people one from the classic 70’s or 80’s GH era Kin Shriner as Scott Baldwin would be 1 I would like to see again. Trevor St John from OLTLwould be another great choice. In my opinion which other may not agree with but that is ok.

I hope so much that its Natalie.. John needs his family. I also would love so much to have Blair and Tomas. Maybe Tomas was undercover as Alcazar….

1oveabcsoaps
1oveabcsoaps

My wish is for it to be Trevor St. John, OR Venessa Marcil, OR Dr. David Haywood/ Vincent Irizarry, OR Roxy. That’s it….!! People are going to tune in for these folks with the QUICKNESS because they come STORYLINE READY, with drama left over from their last appearance, OR leftover from their former role. We know about Brenda and Victor’s STORYLINE READY ROLE, but the hospital would be a buzz when the doctor who has brought back the dead shows at up General Hospital, on a new lease on life in another town. Vincent Irizarry, would be EXCELLENT as an addition to General Hospital and all its dark character types.
I don’t think it will be any of the above, but it’s nice to wish. : )

Jill

I hope it is Trevor or Vincent.

barbara t

I like your wish list ,I would like to throw kassie depava in there to.I really liked her short visit ,blair and carly were good together they could be great friends or enemies .Dr david would be great they need someone like him at general hospital.I wonder who has Robin glad they didnt kill her off now she can come back if she wants or stay.If helena has her she put cassandra in Robins place there was a burnt up body hope we find out more today and also find out who our mystery soap star is.Almost forgot I would love it if finola hughs sticks around,Ive always loved anna.

Debi
Debi

Isn’t the person Robin?? By showing her yesterday confirms what most of us thought, she was still alive. Why else would she still be on set taping??

I took from the article casting is on hold for now. They to busy dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s of a new contract keeping GH on the air!!

I don’t see Trevor coming. I WISH. But I don’t see it. Would love to see Rick Herbst return as he is so talented, but something tells me it will be someone from AMC.

ricardo

we were waiting for the big news today. now we have to wait longer. i had a strange feeling in my stomach that the big news would be delayed. i was right. please just make the big annoucement tomorrow. i think its kin shriner as as scotty baldwin and faison. i think helena or fsison have robin.

Moviegal

Don’t automatically assume it’s a OLTL actor or actress – it could very possibly be a GH star from the past like Anders Hove, Rick Hearst, or Kim Shriner, Lynn Herring or Stuart Damon.

Robin
Robin

Someone “spoiled” on Twitter a little while go that it is someone from OLTL. Not sure how I feel about that. I LOVE OLTL, but I think who they brought over is enough for now. Someone from GH’s past might better serve the show right now! It is on fire!

1oveabcsoaps
1oveabcsoaps

DAVID HAYWOOD, let’s going something going for David Haywood on this site…… What a Hellava fine actor and character he is, and also give a SHOUT OUT to cast of AMC.

David Haywood…………………………. PLEASE!!!!

Scott
Scott

I swear if it is anyone OLTL related, I am boycotting. I think it’s unfair how FV/RC (as I said they would) just cater to their past cast/crew and put GH cast into a damn corner. If ABC knew what they were doing, they should have hired JC/LB from AMC to bring AMC’ers over. But they played favouritsm. Let the show die fellas.

Hopefully it’s a GH cast member, an actual good one. Or else I am boycotting the ABC soap. And no one can tell me otherwise. The show has been a disgrace since FV/RC came in. People whined and complained about the mob being the forefront and with fake Todd/McPain coming in it’s come back and yet people are loving it? That’s bull. If they had to come over, which none of them needed to, they should have been placed in as B-Listers, not A-Listers we should even pretend to care about. FACT.

Slam me all you want my normal slammers but when the cancellation comes next month, I reserve the right to laugh in your faces and say “I told you so!”

barbara t
barbara t

hey scott,Im not going to slam you <But I think that general hospital has been better then it has been in years and I love the way all the stories are playing out .Sonny cant just quit the mob over night I dont think its done that way and take my word for it I hate the mob stories but ron and frank have to fix that problem and it wont happen in 5or is it 6 weeks, john mcbain is there to find out who shot the tires out of anthonys car and killed hope and cole, new cops come and go in port charles all the time so what if he came from landview or buffalo ny.why is that annoying you ?Michael easton is a good actor And the one life to live characters have not taken over general hospital, and the one life to live characters will not be what kills general hospital , If its canceled It will happen because of the years of abuse it has taken from the use to be writers that turned it into the sonny, carly ,jason ,mob fest ,again, I am not slamming you for your opinion Im just telling you that I think general hospital is finally for me watchable again.Arent you happy that Robin is alive?

Scott
Scott

I’m sorry but I see nothing but the horrific trainwreck that OLTL was when it was on. Horrible writing and bad filming technique. Michael Easton is not a good actor, he cannot enunciate his words. It sounds like he had a stroke and can’t speak. I don’t get how people whined and complained about it being dark, Wolf made it lighter and now Carlivati is bringing it dark again and yet people are now praising it like it’s the best thing to happen to the show? That’s bull.

And I’m insulted the Robin storyline. As someone who lost their child at a young age, I think of Emma and what she now has to go through emotionally. GH is not watchable for me. I cannot stand anything happening right now, besides Kate. And it annoys me because FV/RC act like we care who they are. WE DON’T!!

1loveabcsoaps
1loveabcsoaps

SCOTT: I love you!!!!!!!! You are NOT AFRAID to speak your mind contrary to popular opinion on this board. U have a bit of OBJECTIVITY, and ” IS NOT EVERYTHING, OLTL. Yes, it’s you Scott (the other guy-when I posted earlier) I said, I would join in my venture of a new soap network if I hit the lottery tonight.
Ok, (reader’s) I loved, loved, OLTL, BUT I become annoyed when I see people write: Bring 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, people over to GH. (Why don’t ya just put the cast of GH out of work, why don’t you?) Just because I stick up for the cast of GH, doesn’t mean that I love OLTL anyless. We don’t need Blair, Carly is enough like Blair and the camera loves Carly. If GH is to accept any cast from OLTL or AMC, it should be a character of VAST difference UNLIKE any GH has on now. That would be Roxy, TSJ, Vicky (who don’t seem right in Port Charles (long term), David Haywood, David, or that BEAUTIFUL beautiful black cop woman police officer from AMC, that was involved with the War Hero (on the show) that won Dancing with the Stars’s, last season.
What I don’t understand though is this statement :
” If ABC knew what they were doing, they should have hired JC/LB from AMC to bring AMC’ers over. But they played favouritsm. ”

*Please explain why ABC didn’t know what they were doing by hiring FV/RC, when OLTL ended with such a HUGE following? That’s the 1st question.

2nd: What is the difference between ABC hiring FV/RC to bring OLTLiver’s over, oppose to your suggestion, “If ABC knew what they were doing, they should have hired JC/LB from AMC to bring AMC’ers over. ” Wouldn’t that be favoritisium either way? That’s the only thing that confused me… Please share.

And oh, yes, everybody complains about the mob, but it is ok now, bc Todd, and McBain are on Gh, thanks for pointing that out! Everything U said made sense bc U defended your position. I just don’t understand how bringing JC/LB from AMC and AMC’ers would of been any different, when calling out ‘ favoritisim ‘.

And yes, agreed, let OLTL move on! The show had it’s ‘movement in time’, and General Hospital STILL hasssssssssss THEIR’s, and I KNOW U have READ me POST this before.

barbara t

This is funny you and I leave a post for Scott,I hope he does not get mad at me.But I think general hospital is good again and There is nothing wrong with John Mcbain in port charles what if ron called him billie bob or something like that would he be acceptable then?and I agree about your 2: comment I didnt understand what he meant I was afraid to ask.And about moving on from one life to live your right its gone ,but not forgotten,The reason I bring it up all the time ,One life to live was my favorite soap of all the soaps Ive watched it was the one I loved the most . and If I had a choice of one show a day that I could watch,bring me all my favorite characters from landview they had more heart and soul and class unlike any other soap that I have watched and I dont see it In general hospital even though I am enjoying it once again.Thats why I get upset when I hear that the one life to live people are hurting g h and that is not happening,someone tell me that blair ,star todd and john have taken over all stories in port charles ,because there not .When was the last time starr was on?When I see pieces of one life to live on general hospital I will know it and now I dont see it .Characters come and go in soaps all the time ,there is nothing wrong with a little piece and I mean little,piece of landview in port charles.they will not be the reason the soap gets canceled ,If general hospital gets canceled that stinking rat channel has known one way or the other they are through with soaps they wanted to save money and now because of there greed there daytime programming is biting them in the ass ,hell even the business magazines are calling abc/disney stupid that they killed 2 classic soaps for dopy shows for idiots they lost a very huge fan base, oprah made it big because of the soaps katie wont if there is no soaps left for her lead in.good god am I rambling again?I just came here because I think its funny you and I have a few words to tell scott.O yeah I agree scott should join us in our soap adventure ,thats if he is not mad at me again,I hope not,But it keeps the conversations interesting.

Scott

To answer your questions:

1) If OLTL was such a ratings show, they would have kept it. But they didn’t. GH had the stronger history and cast. And hiring FV/RC destroyed that.

2) You’re not following my comments. In hiring FV/RC, they neglected AMC fans, which is insulting. Bring both shows in or let them die. I lost GL/ATWT and dealt with it, OLTL fans are being greedy to the core while ruining one of my soaps.

Please bring back nurse Bobbie!!!! Carly needs her desperately! Votes also for Vincent Irrizary and TSJ! OMO, but I think it’s a little strange that John has taken an extended trip to Port charles, after such a long separation from Nat and Liam. How about a visit?

Oh and btw, that little kid who plays Emma is fabulous. I swear I’ve never been mesmorized by any kiddie soap actor (they mostly just show up as scene candy after the parternity tests and before the trip to the magic boarding school) Twenty years from now we will be seeing her on the Oscar stage. Just saying.

Vanessa was on set last week. She and Kelly Sullivan were tweeting pics. Maybe he decided to bring her back and right the tragedy and joke, they made of her last return. What the did to the memory of Sonny and Brenda and the strong, vivacious character of Brenda Barrett was a CRIME. I’m still bitter.

lovelylake
lovelylake

The smartest move to make on Gh would be for them to bring Vanessa Marcil back with Sonny’s child. She’s a historical figure and GH . She’s the reason why Sonny is no longer sexy and charismatic. She puts the fire back into the men on GH and we need her pronto! If Brenda comes back Jax is sure to follow.

Loved reading all the comments and speculation on this page~
Who’s coming to GH? Now that my OLTL was been cancelled by that darned ex-ABC Daytime President Dennis Frons, who single handled promised to TRANSFORM ABC Daytime, and did by destroying 2hrs of it cancelling AMC & OLTL). I’ve been DVR’g GH everyday to watch every evening after a full day at work.

LLSinSCV
LLSinSCV

Is it one of the old star from back in the 70′[s when I was a frequent viewer of GH during the Luke & Laura days or a newer returnee?

Perhaps someone else from my beloved cancelled OLTL (ie: Kassie Wesley DePaiva / Blair… plusr Erika Slezak/ Victoria Lord or Téa Delgado Lord/ Florencia or David Vickers or fabulous Dorian Lord/ Robin Strasser? Someone mentioned Carlo Hesser.. Maybe?? )
Perhaps someone from cancelled AMC as well?

I want ABC to tell us the future of GH. Stringing us along is not welcomed here and it is really making me more mad at them. If they even think that the Revolution will improve they are very mistaken. GH has now become the best of all the soaps. I cannot wait to find out who else is coming and pray that it won’t be for the finale. I really don’t think I can handle another finale.

barbara t

I sent abc.com a email every day annoying them ,wanting to know one way or the other ,Is general hospital staying or is it gone ,They dont care they want to make us wait ,who knows maybe they dont want there daytime ratings to sink even lower then they are now,At this time they are canceling and renewing all there prime time crap there just playing head games with the soap fans the faithful fans who for decades watched and supported the abc soaps Im with you I want to know now one way or the other and I also dont want another finale.

I read that Katie Couric would rather take The Revolution’s time slot than GH’s for her show. Let’s hope she gets her wish.

david

OLTL and AMC were canceled on April 14, 2011. The decision will be announced shortly. The Revolution will be canceled because ABC cannot develop a show to replace it by the time Katie starts. Furthermore, if GH was canceled, the backlash against Katie and ABC would be bad and they know it after what happened with OLTL. GH will survive until ABC develops something less expensive as a replacement. GH will survive, or at least be broadcast, into 2013.

Dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s usually means they are finalizing the details of the contract – I don’t think anyone is “stringing us along” – just that they have to lock in the legal details.

I don’t know who it will be hopefully many, I just read a whole article about Faison and his connection and storyline to Anna; so it could definitely be him or is crazy Lisa still alive or Franco ? So many options and I like many of the suggestions on here.

Christine

To add my two cents, I think it is VincenT Irizarry. (T and I covered). I heard he was playing a new doctor.

However, and not meaning to hijack the thread, but since others have commented on Robin, was that Irene Manning’s voice in the scenes with Robin today? I know I recognize that voice from somewhere!

Cathy
Cathy

Considering Dr David was keeping other characters alive on AMC, that doesn’t sound unreasonable at all.

I also wanted to add, I have also heard other names as coming back:

Vanessa Marcil for a Nurses Ball in honor of Robin; Jonathan Jackson for Elizabeth and/or Luke; and Rick Hearst for Alexis, though I have to say it is too bad they wasted the time she had with Mac. They could have been something.

If it’s not Kassie I’ll continue my boycott of ABC and GH. Not interested in seeing Todd without Blair.

Debi
Debi

Yes but I want to see Todd with Carly!!! Anyway, it is a women, NOT a man. It could only be Blair or Jessie….Jessie was rumored to be coming to Pt Chuckles to take over Kates business.

I hope to God it’s not Vincent Irrizary ( David). That ridiculous Orpheus project story was a laughing stock on AMC and we dont need that drivel on GH. That would definite kill the show! I truly believe that Cartini will def hire Trevor St. John at some future point.
That also gets on my nerves because once again Cartini are abandoning GH history in favor of another gimmicky plot to continue the OLTL storyline.
Id much rather Cartini rehire Johnathan jackson, Kimberly McCollough, Stuart Damon or Sean Kanaan.

I agree with you. As much as I loved OLTL, they shouldn”t try to re-create the show at GH’s expense. GH has a great group of actors; they just need to be given good material to work with. Frank and Ron in a short amount of time, have improved GH and we should give them credit for that. Now is not the time to start the boycott chant. Do we want another CHEW or Revolution? I certainly don’t!

The orpheus project was stupid but it wasa good way to say goodbye to the characters from pine valley ,but keep in mind that they were going to freeze port charles years ago and wasnt there a alien from another planet on general hospital ?good grief I think marlena on days of our lives turned into satin.Sometimes the writers get desperate and I dont like when that happens but soaps do continue.I dont think that the writers are going to abandon the history of general hospital,and alot of times the soap fans dont want to come back so its not easy getting them to stay or come back they move on.

I just read at GH2 that the person is a female, and she is coming from OLTL.
My guess? Blair or Jessie.

General Hospital

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.
