If these two brand new ABC promos don’t do the trick, nothing will!  General Hospital has revealed two of their biggest promos in the history of the show, which teases the long awaited Nurses’ Ball, which promises to be a night of drama, and a night of song and dance!

But while the Nurses’ Ball plays out, so will the exciting story of Luke and Laura on the hunt for their MIA daugther, Lulu and whom does it looks like the duo will cross paths with?  (SPOILER ALERT) Well, if you look at the promo, it’s none other than Helena Cassadine!  Will Dante and Anna get to Lulu on time?  Is this the ultimate Cassadine plan?

General Hospital’s head writer, Ron Carlivati led the charge this morning teasing the new GH 50th anniversary promos by tweeting first, “Our Nurses Have Ball” with a link to the first promo, followed by “When You’re About to Turn 50 …” with a link to the second promo, whose tag line is “Get Ready for a Wild Ride!”

Now after the jump, take a look at the previews of for General Hospital’s 50th, and oh yes, there is some Sonny/Brenda stuff going on too!  Let us know your thoughts,  and what you are looking forward to seeing play out the most, as GH rings in their historic golden anniversary!

Has anybody thought what this show is going to look like after the Anniversary week and the Nurse’s Ball? Do we just lose all of the past cast and the storylines settle down or does it go on for the whole month of April? Michael do you know anything? Not sure I want spoilers but have you heard is GH celebrating all of April or just the first week around the April 1st Anniversay? Hope they stagger the departures over days, weeks or never…

Thanks for the reply about my April fools day spoof! Sometimes i like to see a little humor in these threads to compenstate for all the rudeness and other negative stuff we sometimes read here. As for what i read from what youve asked…ive heared some vets are staying while some are just here for short story arcs. i did read the actress on her facebook claim she is leaving the show; let go? I hope RC has others good stuff planned after the nurses ball because after that and all the hoopla surrounding the vets return, anything else doesnt… Read more »

Agreed… we need more humor and light hearted posts… this is TV. What actress might have been let go? I trust that RC will have great stories to come just hope they transition people off over time and not all within a week or so.

I agree Heidi! Yeah, gotta wonder who will be on the show and who will be leaving after the 50th ?? They definitely can’t keep up with this pace of having that many cast members on the show — even though I love seeing past faves!

If i was writing GH ida done a special April 1st episode with mostly Sonny and the mob, the return of the Balkin, and feature Brenda in every scene. The last ten minutes we would see Patrick getting married to Sabrina with little Emma exclaiming ‘Sabrina, your the best mommie ever!’ Then cut to the Drake home Pactric would tell Sabrina he never loved a woman as much as he loves her as he throws pictures of Robin and other mementos of her in a large box marked Goodwill donations. And as Patrick and Sabrina are about to kiss passionately,… Read more »

I know, I believe so .. he is definitely coming back. It makes the most sense, especially after today’s episode with the guy they caught killing himself. (Sorry for the spoiler alert) — I smell a serious Cassadine curse coming along! Great work RC & FV, GH is unstoppable minus the mess that PP tried with Starr, Todd, & John we will survive!!

Btw this is my first time EVER posting on here, hope you guys take it easy with me 🙂

I am loving this show right now but just saw a very disgusting scene. With the embarrassment of riches the show currently has with its vets, WHY are they wasting airtime on Felix at all, and by extension…Felix‘s crush on Milo???? And why are they using an innocent child to prop this filth up? Little Emma just cheerfully chirped to TJ “No silly, Felix likes boys.“ Then Molly says “maybe he is gay and doesnt know it“ Haley Pullos is a child too. Why is this show using young children to push the gay agenda?? It is disturbing and disgusting!… Read more »

It is not an “agenda,” it is a storyline the message of which, perhaps, might be tolerance. Perhaps you can acquire some. If not, since gays and straights post here, take the hate elsewhere. The world is changing, my dear. A majority of Americans now support gay rights, which rights include loving who one wants to love. GH is only reflecting the changing attitudes of Americans, kind of like, some years ago, when soaps had interracial couples to acknowledge that that taboo had been overcome. You have a right to your opinion, but to cloak it in hate speech is… Read more »

I didnt hear any venom or hate speech in this post. This person was expressing an opinion which is perfectly within his/her rights. You don‘t have to agree with it but to accuse them of hate speech, venom, and intolerance is a bit radical. I happen to agree with him/her on many levels. Mostly though, that the character of Felix is a major waste of precious airtime with all of the awesome veterans back on the canvas. If you can list ONE purpose that the character serves, other than being an effeminate, shallow, token gay driven by lust for hunky… Read more »

I am 50 this year, too. GH has esactly four months one me. I may use for myself the tag line “When you’re about to turn 50, this no time to hold back.”

I have never been so excited about daytime drama in my 40 years of watching. And today Y&R is 40!

And AMC and OLTL are soon back from the dead!

Oh, how I miss my ATWT though.

Congrats to GH on turning 50! What a milestone and the show has never looked so good! I’m so excited for the Nurse’s Ball! Can wait for the tributes to Amy and Jessie! Looking forward to see Lucy in her full ball regalia! Can’t wait to see more from past faves like Anna, Duke, Bobbie, Leslie et al and am thrilled that the Ice Princess storyline will be revisited. Frank and Ron have done a great job bringing the romance and suspense back to GH. Thank you to all involved for an awesome celebration.

Britt’s mother is so vicious & has no feelings or emotions at all! Luke & Laura together
looking for their daughter together! Robin needs to appear at the nurses ball ASAP!
Everything would explode ! The shock on everyone’s faces seeing Robin is alive!

Love Stefan/Laura – SN/GF chemistry is magical. So over L/L & L/S. GF needs to go back to blonde as she looks too old with the darker hair and AG looks so much older then her every time I see them together he looks more like her grandfather more and more.Please save Genie from this mess of recycling the L/L/S triangle that’s older then time itself. Laura needs a real man and he’s Stefan Cassadine,together they can run the Cassadine empire with Nikolas at there side. Now that would have me watching. So sick of it being always about Luke,Laura… Read more »

Wow!

thank you.

they need to re-write this stuff immediately…. it’s the same ole same old… regurge… if you will….. they’re TOO old… and i mean this in a common sense. Oye! 100% agree about Luke…

this stuff in the hospital… with them making phone calls… ie: Nicholas has been shot… ???? that was poor writing…. and acting…

Stefan, is the answer to Genie Francis’ Laura.

Sexy… dark… electric… would give Laura… a big foundation… for being in Port CHarles…

it can’t be about “Luke and Laura”….

believe you me… i’m happy that these two characters are on GH.

gh is really old yet it still has no core families who are African american and Latino american and Asian american. gh has obviously failed w/ the aspect of racial diversity. Majority of hollywood tv shows don’t have racially diverse casts and personalities. Yet racially diverse tv shows are successful. A lot of day talk shows w/ only white hosts have been axed like blanderson cooper’s flop day talk show. Yet “the talk” is one of the higher rated day talk shows and it is the most racially diverse. Night soap scandal’s 18-49 demo is only .1 less than idol… Read more »

I think the hoopla will die down after the Nurses Ball, and the vets brought back will slowly dissapoear. Jack Wagner was only contracted for 10 episodes, it seems like it has been more now. I think that Genie might stick around for a while, if they write her stronger. I would like to see her and Connie/Kate work together and handling Crimson. As for Stefan he was the nicier ofr the Cassaines, so he would not be a surprise return. Would love to see Victor return with Thaoo playing him again. We also got a hint about Lucas Jones,… Read more »

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
