Courtesy/IMDB

Reports are in that Van Hughes, who is currently on tour with the hit musical American Idiot is set to reprise the role of Cole Thornhart to help bring Kristen Alderson’s Starr Manning to General Hospital and the Port Charles canvas.

Alderson will make her GH debut the week of February 20. And the week of February 27th marks the arrivals into Port Chuck of Blair and Todd, played by Kassie DePaiva and Roger Howarth!

So how do you think they are going to explain Starr ending up in the mobster filled city? Why would Cole just leave her there, or would he?  Let us know, what you think new head writer, Ron Carlivati and his writing team may be setting up for the Llanview favorite on her new soap home!

I rather keep Starr with Cole then not with him at all. And what about Hope?

Well Cole is presumed dead, so if they thought someone was catching on to him being alive, they’d probably be on the move and leave LA. If it were me, I’d have Starr run into Dillon or Brook Lynn while in LA working on her music, and have one of them suggest Port Charles as a good place to lay low from the cops. I don’t think Cole would leave her, but they could be discovered by the cops, and Cole could be sent back to prison.

i’m excited for anything that keeps GH going. Any buzz is better then none, and if sister soap OLTL can help them the better. For me is a win win situation as I am both a GH and OLTL fan. I don’t know where i fall in the percentage. i.e fan of both shows vs fan of only one or the other show. So, i’m sure there will be those who will hate it, those who don’t care and those who are looking foward to whats going to develop. Hopefully it will all be Great.

Given ABC’s obsession with cutting costs to increase profits, GH fans needn’t worry that Van Hughes or any of the other OLTL cast will be in Port Charles any longer than is necessary to lure some OLTL fans to GH.

maybe she is on “tour” and cole is with her and then he mysteriously disappears in PC
– then Blair and Todd come to help and then John goes undercover to find him? lol

I don’t get it-Cole coming back on the convas but no Natalie for John? I thought GH wanted viewers. John and Natalie fans would come over for their story-RC should be picking the low hanging fruit-why worry about luring new viewers when you have an existing fan base looking for a reason to watch.

I am hoping that this storyline leads to many more actors coming from OLTL. ABC made a big mistake cancelling OLTL so right now I will take what I can get.

I never liked the character of, Cole. I don’t know why they didn’t just leave him to run off to his parents. I HATE the fact that the show was cancelled, but at least we get a small part of them on GH (which I am having a hard time getting into always found it boring). I will get hooked once my beloved OLTL characters make their appearance on GH. Thankful that I have that to look forward to after they took the only show I was dedicated to watching off the air for good.

I can see you’re young. Tantrum “don’t watch”…seriously?! Opinions were asked and people are giving them. There is always someone waiting to pounce and attack anyone who doesn’t share the same opinion as their own. If you don’t agree, write your opinion to the page owners instead of verbal attacks. Grow up!

Her being on the show is dumb and Cole is even dumber. They should should of introduced her as a new character. Now we have to hear her whine about Cole…UGH!

I refuse to watch Revolution too. Too upset by it replacing OLTL. I am hoping it will make them notice a loss in viewers in that time frame. If all fans did the same, I would hope it could make a difference, but with everyone finding new jobs, I guess it’s hopeless now.

ABC SID reported today that there are no plans to bring Melissa Archer to GH (yay!) – nothing against the actress, just no more Jolie, thank God! Now they can put him w/someone that actually shares chemistry w/him (KeMo?).

The one thing that annoys me about soap operas is recasts. I wish it was Brandon. Not only do you grow to the character after so many years, but the actor who protrays that character. Sole scenes are weird without Brandon. Van is okay and all but it’s not the same. I’ll still watch because of my love for OLTL, it just won’t be the same. Still very curious to see how this is all going to play out with OLTL characters coming to PC. I almost wish they were all playing new, fresh characters.

Long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Here’s hoping for the Llanview takeover of GH. That’s the only way I’ll tune in. They cancelled the wrong show. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

They did not canceled the wrong show. One Life to Live had performed poorly for more than 5 years. It’s only after One Life to Live got the axe that it started to gain viewers and be ahead of General Hospital. The last 8 months of One Life to Live, as good as they were, do not make up for the awful ratings the show had for past few years.

I personally prefer One Life to Live over General Hospital. But, I’m also capable accepting the facts when I see them .

Hi Heather, I like your thoughts in your post and I see you converse with one of my favorite people on here. I absolutely love One Life To Life, and the show has been VERY GOOD long……….before the cancelation (notice) last year, so I dont agree withg you there, ” that it only got good after it got the axe that”. OLTL was EXCELLENT way back and (before) they brought Brenda back to GH and made a mockery out of that..! So it’s been more than the last” 8 months”, that it’s been good. BUT, I have to agree with… Read more »

I didn’t say that One Life to Live wasn’t good before its last 8 months. I said that its ratings weren’t. There’s a difference.I never stopped enjoying OLTL. But its ratings in 2009 and 2010 didn’t left me any insurrance that OLTL would last very long, especially with the way CBS was canceling its soap operas at the time. If it was up to me One Life to Live would still be on the air as we speak. But, on the other hand, I find it wrong in every level for people to say that General Hospital should have canceled… Read more »

“whether one live to live had lower ratings then gh which I dont believe becacuse the over 49 werent counted taping wasnt counted and soapnet was not counted,and ABC LIES,and to believe that rating stuff ,well I dont buy it ”

But Barbara, if the over 49 years old and Soapnet viewers were not counted on One Life to Live’s ratings, that also means that they were not counted on General Hospital’s ratings as well.

I just lost everything I just wrote ,yes I do believe abc lied about the ratings the only ratings that are counted are at the time the show is on ,live,not taped,not on soapnet,and the 49 year olds are not counted look at the ages of the groups the 49ers are not there Its 49 and under,and there are alot of us who believe the wrong show got tossed ,one life to live is far better soap than general hospital it has rich history general hospital doesnt have that, there history is slowly getting killed off by the mob.and they… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
