General Hospital has the most vivid sensational characters, of all the soaps!!
It is a spellbinding on the edge soap yet has fun humorous stuff injected in for balance!!
I know General Hospital will take it all the way for our Halloween good time!!

Can hardly wait for Roger Howarth/Franco’s Halloween wedding!!
It’s gonna rock!!!

(when the soaps are not taken overly serious as if they are real and personal, they can be fun, really fun!! …
Especially General Hospital, always a good time on the cliffs edge dangling suspense!! !!!

I completely agree! Will never understand the criticism that GH is not “realistic” enough. Hello? It’s a tv show! Not even “reality” shows are realistic. They are scripted. Pro wrestling – scripted. And, when have soaps ever been “realistic?” I guess those critics only want dour, depressing sagas where everyone is drinking, having affairs & popping prescription drugs to deal with it all. I’d MUCH rather watch GH’s twisted, black humor any day! When you have a mobster like Sonny who has ruled the town, it makes sense to do GET SHORTY eventually.

Lately, we are seeing the real Roger Howarth; playing Franco far more delicious than he has since GH changed his character over from Todd. Looking forward to his Halloween surprise for Carly who deserves everything that is coming to her!

Actually, ces…I’ve been saying this for a while not..but we’re seeing the reall “Todd.” His personality is really emerging very close to Todd’s and I’m thinking this is the way Ron gets away with keeping Roger in his beloved role while staying within the legal boundaries. Either way I agree. Roger is baaaaaaaack!

You’re right Rebecca. I saw “Todd” in those scenes with Heather on Friday, not Franco. GH knows that turning Roger into Franco was dumb but their hands were tied if they wanted to keep Roger on the show. It sucks, because Todd & Carly used to have chemistry and then poof, PP came in and they lost it along the way. I’m really hoping Franco & Nina hook up together after all this is said & done. Love the stuff Roger is doing now 😉 Super tired of Carly needing to protect Michael all the time — it’s like “Cut… Read more »

su0000, I think something is going on with Franco off-screen. 1st I thought there were 2 of him (hear me out..lol), but now I wonder if he has a split personality.. Thursday when Franco & Michael were in the conferences room at GH his hair was combed down straight and dry (no product). He said he had an appointment & left. A bit later he shows up at Ferncliff to see mom. He had the same clothes on, added a jacket and some kind of hair oil. His hair was slicked back like John Travolta in Grease. Heather said “What… Read more »

Cant wait for ‘THE BRIDE OF FRANCOSTEIN’ episode…lol…this episode wouldve been a great time for Helene to pay a spooky visit to Jason in the hospital…Nina asking Silas to ‘Play Misty For Me'(with Donna Mills in that scene: she played in the movie with that title about a crazy woman-Jessica Walter- obsessed with Clint Eastwoods character and went all Ninalike crazy, though the much of the storyline is a different)…Faison suprising Liesal only its Victor in a mask…Lulu having a Rosemarys Baby nightmare as she is carrying Stravos’s child and all the Cassidines are there worhshiping the Devil(Stravos) as Lulu… Read more »

To honor Michelles big performance: Attack Of The 50ft Nina on the Halloween episode! Nina is touched by an alien on a long dark deserted road…within days she grows into a giant and goes on a rampage searching for Silas and Sam who briefly reunited and are having drinks at Ryans Bar in New York…Nina pulls off the roof and a beam falls on Sam crushing her to death! Nina reaches down and picks up Silas and carries him off only both are electricuited to death when giant Nina attempts to cross electrical lines…of course its just a fantasy episode… Read more »

I remember “Play Misty for Me-” a great movie! It used to be shown on television a lot when I was younger! I am really enjoying Nina Clay. Love Nina’s interactions with her mother and Rosalie. She’s hurt, sensitive, and vulnerable mixed with crazy, deceitful, and diabolical. With all of the talk about how close she was to her father-I am wondering if she was abused by him-which caused her to go crazy. It sounds like Franco will be showing quite the video at his wedding to Carly-much like what happened on Days at Brady and Kristen’s wedding. I just… Read more »

Did you have to remind me about the couch…lol…i bet if they took it out to burn it, the Sonny/Carly fumes would spread all over PC causing instant death to whom ever inhales it…lol…PMFM is one of my favorite thrillers of all time!!!

I know jimh-the couch-haha! Perhaps this storyline will make Michael a tad bit interesting. I have always been a fan of Sonny’s, but not lately-and Shawn as his “enforcer” is ridiculous. Waste of air-time-Shawn trying to pin Franco’s near-death on Maxie, etc.-when you know that was never going to happen. Sonny repeating the same lines about how Carly is making a mistake, how she doesn’t love Franco, how she belongs with Sonny, etc., etc.-just plain dumb and boring. I’ve lost count at how many women Sonny has said belonged with him. Anyhoo, I do like Franco-just not in this storyline.… Read more »

The last scene with Franco and Heather is an absolutely lip-smacking, delicious and frightening satirical feast. I’m sure they both had a lot of fun C U T T I N G it !!!!

Franco with Heather or Franco with Nina…Franco works best with these two characters and vice versa…imo…GH still has some flaws but lately the cast seems somewhat better balanced in recent weeks and the storylines are improving lately that now if my overgrown toenails need a trim they’ll just have to wait for the weekend…lol

I agree; Franco’s best scenes and most enjoyable scenes are with his mother, Heather and his friend, Nina.

Faison dressing up as Beetlejuice last year was the best. The great Anders Hove took the ball and ran with it. I always love seeing what costumes they come up with for the various characters. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us this year.

That was very funny-when he opened the door and Lesley Webber fainted. I love Faison and Dr. O’s scenes together, too.

I was glad to see Heather; I want Franco and Heather to confront Sonny and Shawn. I hope Franco becomes more combatant with Sonny. Just because he ‘s a mobster, the writers like to make other characters afraid of him. That’s how they wrote A. J.’s character.

Well, it’s quite obvious Franco’s from today’s episode. wedding gift to his bride will be a video of herself and a Sonny in bed…brought to us in technicolor …Boo, surprise, y’ll.

You’re right…crossed my mind too. I think the preview ,today, tried to throw us off, though. Didn’t Franco say to Carly that he knew what was going on between her and Sonny? Of course, it’ll be something completely different from what we’re thinking.

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Amanda opened up about expecting her third child and her decision to be safe during this time to Soap Opera Digest, stating:  “Despite being really excited and eager to jump back into GH, due to the many unknowns with Covid and expectant mothers, it was advised for us to wait it out.”

Meanwhile, Lane took to her Twitter account to express: “Honored to fill some big, wildly talented shoes and step in as the fierce and loving Brook Lynn Quartermaine. Working alongside such gifted actors and a kind=-hearted crew on such a legendary show has been a career milestone… So happy to be on board!!

Lane has appeared in American Horror Story, NCIS, All American, and 9-1-1 to name a few.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?
