Two major fan favorites are on their way back for visits on General Hospital.  Recurring stars Wally Kurth (Ned) and Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) are back this fall on the ABC soap opera.

Anderson will appear on the Friday, September 2nd episode, but it’s unclear if it will be for a story arc, or not.

Kurth, who also plays Justin Kiriakis on Days of our Lives, reveals he will be back next month as well in Port Charles.

Wally told SOD: “I’m excited that I get to do both shows. I love being able to do both characters, Ned and Justin.”

So, what stories will Ned and Spinelli find themselves enmeshed in Port Charles? Share your theories in the comment section below!

Spin tells Maxi that Ellie left him just as Maxi and Nate split up over Claudette and she invites Spin and their baby to move in with her-Spin is unaware Ellie left him because she is dieing but Spin finds out and miracle Dr. Finn saves the Trout…Ned is there to help Tracy and Sab locate the latter’s missing baby…at the same time whatshisface found a baby for mommy-wanna-be Nina seemingly unaware its Sabs missing child-ok, made it up-lol

Love Wally Kurth and his Ned. I wish GH would write for him and keep him around. He’s a great actor and Ned and his alter ego, Eddie Maine, are always good.

Hopefully Spinelli will save our Maxie from this tragic story and by tragic, I mean sucky, stupid & boring! Please can Nathan, Claudette and that drip Griffin!

For sure, Please! He’s a smart guy, certainly he can think of something to get those three on the road out of town! I’d even welcome a time machine storyline to send them (permanently) back or forward in time. The gentleman that portrays Nathan has such weak acting skills that a dramatic storyline with him in the center of it was doomed from the start.

Lol! these pretty faces Griffin & Nathan are about as exciting as a piece of log. Poor Kirsten stuck in the middle. They need to cut their losses with this group and get Bradford Anderson back permanently!

I don’t know much about either character….well, just the basics.
But, doesn’t Spinelli’s appearance always relate to some kind of issue involving Maxie, Jason/Sam or Sonny?
Three choices: look into the Claudette/Nathan/Griffin triangle; best man for Jason?; or investigating Nelle—as per Sonny’s orders.
Ned? Visits his mother? Too obvious.

Cee, dont scratch your head too hard, Spinelli is a goof that should have come and gone like Natalie on Y&R and Ned is awesome but they roll him in and out like Scorpio and leave us wanting more. Its stunt casting, is all!

Hi, Timmmy,
Thanks for the heads up. I don’t mind seeing Spinelli….he’s nerdy, but strangely funny. I can tolerate him. Actually, I like him. And, I like him with Maxie. But, you know more than I….as far as stunt casting.
So, I will follow your lead and not belabor his ‘homecoming’.
Ned is just a pleasant character to me. Nothing less, nothing more.

Spinelli has been written less hyper, the character has calmed down.
I Like Spin, he is different, and that is a good thing..

A lot of us LOVE Spinelli CeeCee and he was a very central character for years. I think he came to Port Charles ten years ago. He was always a computer genius/nerd…and arrived as a quirky character who we were all kinda amused by but not invested in and then bam! Many of us fell in love with this kid in-his-own- world! He was dragged into doing work for a criminal Alcazar (a really popular character too…played by Ted King who also played Tomas (Tea’s husband on OLTL). Anyway, Spinelli eventually tried to get away from the danger but was… Read more »

As for Ned, I think everyone loves Ned. He started out as a gorgeous “ladies man”. I remember filling you in way back when we first got friendly…he used to be a tennis instructor. He and Monica,,,many, many years ago, met and had an affair. They didn’t know who the other was a Quartermaine at the time. That was a good story…sigh…how I miss those Quartermaine days.nthere were so many of them and it was a great soap family…always funny and scandalous. Ned returned to the Q’s and instead of following in his grandfather (the patriarch of the Q’s) footsteps… Read more »

Yes, Rebecca. Thank you. I just got around reading my mail; after a much needed breather…..Vineyard time. At least the island is quiet, now!!!! Well, except for our passel of kids….nephews, nieces….sometimes I lose count, LOL. I think I have a better understanding of Spinelli…. thank you. I can identify with this guy….in his nerdy-kind- of-way. I was alays called a book worm and too old for my age….so, I can relate. I wish he could stay on….we need that kind of distraction here and there. Too many mundane stories going around in circles. But, as I always say….I am… Read more »

Vineyard time sounds good…and passels of kids do too! In a world full of negativity…innocence is still the epitome of joy. “Spinelli” was on contract for a long time; he chose to leave so it’s great that he makes these sporadic appearances. As for Wally Kurth, I’m catching a few of the remaining soaps (usually when an actor I like from another show heads over to it, etc) so I’ve only seen Wally once or twice in his other role. Lol; too weird. We KNOW it’s the same actor yet while obvious, it’s still amazing how we, as viewers, can… Read more »

I still say Wally needs to be back full time as Ned. Always liked that character. Also would like to see Spinelli around all the time too. That character is always fun to watch.

Yea!! Hope Wally stays for awhile with a good story.

I wish they had a real story for Spinelli this time too. He could work for the police department instead for thugs, maybe that way they could actually solve a crime.

hey Timmm..
Wally doesn’t seem to want a contract with either soap
”’Wally told SOD: “I’m excited that I get to do both shows. I love being able to do both characters, Ned and Justin.””’

Norther did Tristan, not until Y&R/CBS gave him a sweet deal he couldn’t walk away from..

Sometime the Vets do not want to be back in under contract.. They like ‘appearances’ it works out better for them..

nancy dillingham

I can’t believe that–especially the desparity in money. I really believe that Tristan Rogers wanted a contract with GH years ago–just went o Y & R because they did give him one–at that time.

There is no way to recast all the Q’s and have them accepted.
At the least, RC, gave us Dillion an active Q ..
And Ned shows up every blue moon..

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
