Who Is Oscar’s Father On General Hospital?

Courtesy/ABC

Josslyn’s (Eden McCoy) boyfriend, Oscar is a bit of mystery, and as all things are in Port Charles lives are often interconnected when you least expect it.

In story, Oscar played by Garren Stitt, has no idea who his bio-dad is.  Begging the question, who on the canvas is most likely to turn out to be the teenager’s father?

Many have speculated that the dad has to have ties to the mob, but it could be someone else on the canvas who works in the medical profession, law, or otherwise.

Make sure to watch Thursday’s GH, as Josslyn presses Oscar to investigate his past by imploring, “Wouldn’t you like to know who your father is?” 

So, post your theories in the comment section below.  Who do you think could turn out to be Oscar’s dad?

It could be Finn. He so desperately wants a child.

Honestly, who cares? Invest in the stories you have and stop creating endless new stories that never get resolved.

Celia
Celia

I know, right, David? But, like it or not, this will, indubitably, involve Sonny, one way or another.
Another out-of-the-woodwork, illegitimate son? Grandson? The sperm king strikes again?

I THINK SO TOO…HOPE IT WONT TURN OUT TO BE MORE MOB STORY LINE…

Jacob

Probably. Michael Easton had good chemistry with the kid who played Rafe and it was kind of dumb that they killed him off.. .perhaps this is a way to rectify that. Or if could give James DePaiva’s character an anchor to the show. Please don’t be Sonny’s!! 🙂

Celia
Celia

Yes, Jacob. I like that, too….DePaiva ( I keep forgetting the doc’s name) could be the father.
This kid just appeared out of the blue.
TPTB could be introducing younger characters; teens. Not much of a storyline if it does not involve teen stories. The same is going on with Y&R. These teens are introduced, “storyless”, where all the drama is about the adults, using the teens as a vessel.
We adults are not interested and the teen viewer, if any watches, will find it lame, in my opinion.

Alberto

Good guess, Francesca!

Francesca Bruno

I think it is Seth Meyer making Oscar, Oscar Meyer.

Celia

Hmmmm……that’s a good assumption, Francesca; it would give both Finn and Oscar a familial tie.

Shay

Ooooh, CeeCeeGirl!…That was a most excellent description regarding Sonny’s willy-nilly—yet albeit prolific—-sperm-casting activities across Port Charles, the continental USA and general globe-at-large! Couldn’t imagine a better way of calling a spade a spade! Kudos, mia amica! As for the actual man who sired junior gent, “Oscar Nero”–or whatever his real birthname happens to be?-It would seem the truth of that matter shall will out very soon. Whilst I would love a jaw-dropping denouement to that particularly perplexing puzzle, I guess we shall simply have to breathe a sigh of relief and thank our lucky stars if Sonny is not revealed to be the paternal DNA donor this time around! (And what a refreshing change of pace that would be, eh?)

Shay
Shay

Always welcome, CeeCee! Yes, the Oscar and Joss sweet-teen romance is a lovely little departure from all of the dark muck and mire of the current GH. (And the never-ending random assignations that have no real heart and soul whatsoever…) These sort of couplings used to be a soap staple and I miss them, along with the formerly-plentiful array of gorgeous, young romantic heartthrobs which once populated daytime! Not much to write home about these days! Having said that, I certainly hope that the forthcoming revelations regarding Oscar’s bio-daddy don’t split up this adorable junior twosome!

Shay
Shay

Or Silas Clay….Caleb….John McBain??? The possibilities are nearly endless when one considers Michael Easton’s many alter-egos whose characters have graced Post Charles in the past!

Celia
Celia

Thanks, Shaybelle. Likewise.
Yeah…let’s hope he is no relation to Sonny.
Oscar may have simply been introduced as a little teen-love for Joss. So cute!! Brings back memories, does it not, Shay?

Celia
Celia

I eat your words up, Shay, LOL. You always make sense to me—never bruising that sense or sendibility.
I consider Joss as a beatiful budding rose, and albeit I find this young, blooming love refreshing, Oscar is not the cutest boy in 9th grade. Yeah, I know …sono io–shallow and superficial.
Regardless of their looks, I guess it won’t be long before these kids are both sorased. Too bad…I really reject the idea of aging Joss. I really like her. Oscar? Not so much. Not doing it for me. I’d like to see a good kid, yes….but one who can “mildly” raise Cain. LOL. Oscar is truly blah! …or is he a wolf is sheep’s clothing? I always liked good/bad boys at that age. Go figure!!
Sigh….

Shay
Shay

Oh, yes, Francesca….Brenda is certainly a viable candidate as Oscar’s mother…particularly since she is known as having moved to Italy some years ago. (Yet, does that make her too obvious of a choice?) Of course, Nik also resided there for a time in a (Tuscan?) castle of which he had previously alluded. Both of these characters’ known past details could fit perfectly into the scenario of one or both being Oscar’s parents. Then again, we have such a full gallery of European dwelling former GH characters that specifically focusing upon these two could simply be wishful notions, as are most likely our looking for clues in the fascinating subject of Roman history, but it is a pleasant intellectual diversion to try to bring some meaning and insight into often baffling soap plotlines, even if our suppositions do become too fanciful when far more simple explanations often ultimately suffice! (Something to which I plead guilty and am frequently wont to do with CeeCee, another history/literature buff who also tends to read something deeper into everything! LOL.) Still, it is a harmless hobby and keeps “ze leetle grey cells”—ala Hercule Poirot!—working, no??? (Yes!) As for the surname “Nero?”….I was pondering whether anyone ever used “Mr. Black” as an alias on GH through the years, and I couldn’t come up with an answer….Even though Jerry was so extraordinarily fond of the “faux noms,” I didn’t find that particular one listed amongst his many phony monikers. As you so perhaps presciently suggested, maybe young Oscar even came up with this “red herring” of a colorfully-expressive and historically-loaded name himself, thus, is his actual endgame to bring down a certain “empire?” (Think Sonny’s? Wouldn’t that be rich?) Or more realistically speaking, we are probably simply too caught up in this brainteaser and it really just comes down to an individual on the GH writing team who has a thing for “Franco Nero” and decided to dub this pint-sized mystery man after the Italian acting legend! Hey, anything is possible!

Celia
Celia

You are right, of course, Shay…..”Much Ado About Nothing”. Oscar, more likely than not, is who he says he is, without heavy, innocuous baggage.
Just one thing; Sonny does not procreate….he propagates. Here, there snd everywhere.
A cornucopia, not of flowers, but of every specie of weeds.

Cj
Cj

It’s going to be Andrew, “Billy Miller”, Jason’s brother who used to look like Jason.

Linda
Linda

I think it could be Drew.

Celia
Celia

Of course, Linda. I like that, as well. Drew disappeared…has a new face…no memories….unrecognizable by his ‘son’, Oscar. Sounds good to me.

Melissa
Melissa

He does look like Finn, but he also looks like priest dr monroe?

Steve
Steve

I think we all can agree that Sonny has enough prodigy on the canvas, so not him. Probably not either of the Jasons. Z. Julian and Scott also have their share of long lost offspring. So that leaves:

Finn – but remember the last time they gave ME a long-lost relative. The Silas/Rafe relationship was snooze-worthy.

Valentin – but isn’t already in too many storylines already.

Griffin – that would really shoot the priest angle, plus now Deafd Duke would have a never met grandson

Ned – interesting, but they won’t write that much story for him.

Curtis – we don’t know his entire backstory. This would cause more drama for Jordan & he

Andre – would finally give him a purpose on this show.

My wildcard — Johnny Zachara. Oscar looks like he could be BB’s son

Celia
Celia

I don’t find any of Sonny’s offspring as prodigies. One of the reasons Morgan is dubbed “moron”. Then, there’s Kristina—no smarts there, either. Dante? How did he get that badge? Avery is a baby…will she be a prodigy? Maybe.
I do believe that therevmay be a few more of Sonny’s progeny spread around of whom we know nothing…..yet.

Shay
Shay

God help us, CeeCee, but I believe that you are most likely correct that Sonny’s procreation streak has not yet reached completion. Still, I’m hoping Oscar won’t turn out to be one of his unfortunate, intellect-challenged offspring….it’s become such a cliche’ to be an illegitimate “Corinthos Kid” in Port Charles!

sonniorsolita
sonniorsolita

I think Steve meant to say “progeny,” not “prodigy.” Because like Celia said, none of the Corinthos next generation seems to be packing too many brain cells!

Shay
Shay

Oh, CeeCee…When it comes to unraveling the puzzle of young Oscar’s parentage, how I wish the writers were purposely being too clever by half in tossing out all these tantalizingly brilliant, hidden little clues (and even some red herrings) like breadcrumbs for us to gather, savor and ultimately, analyze (ala Agatha Christie…) However, I suspect we are just prone to seriously overthinking things and searching for underlying meanings where none actually exists, as has happened so many times before with GH storylines that often ended either nowhere or in a highly unsatisfying manner. Most likely, the key to Oscar’s biological origins are staring us right in the face and we are making the obvious connection far more complicated than need be. In other words, the Occam’s Razor principle is probably being applied here. But I do still wonder why and how the “Nero” surname was chosen for this character’s cover, since it would be a real treat if there were an actual rhyme and reason for its curious selection…especially if we figured it out beforehand!

Celia
Celia

LOL, Shay….my middle name is ‘looking for problems that aren’t there”. PC and its environs must be chock-full with dimpled, swarthy “products” of that extraordinary paradigm, Suave, Saint Sonny. Mayhap, the world!!
He’s “like thunder….lightening….can’t lose a good thing…, knock on wood”. Ha.
Considering Sonny has sewn his seed internationally, would it be that much of a stretch to assume Oscar Black is his?
Footnote: Shaybelle….I think his name is really ‘Black’ and is using ( prodded by whomever his mother is ) the Italian translation as an alias. And, yes, the name may be directly linked to that crazy Claudian dynasty. HaHa.

Shay
Shay

I do believe you are right about that one, CeeCeeGirl! Might as well re-dub the town “Port Corinthos” in dubious honor of Sonny and his plentiful supply of progeny! Whilst this “Priapic Don’s” prodigious tendency to procreate would also make Oscar a prime candidate to join his “unlucky sperm club,” I am hoping that for the sake of that poor lad such is not the case…better his paterfamilia really is a Nero …or at least, a basic Black! I say anybody besides Slick Sonny would provide a more palatable choice of lineage for young Oscar….even one improbably linked to an ancient line of insane Roman rulers! Hmmmm…wonder if he plays the fiddle? (By the way, meant to say the key to Oscar’s origins IS staring us right in the face….my bad!)

Mary Anne Buckles
Mary Anne Buckles

I waiting to find out he is Valentin’s son. More tough times froths Cassadines!

Shay
Shay

For the love of God, please no more illegitimate issues for Sonny…enough is enough! To make Oscar’s pairing with Joss a true Romeo and Juliet storyline, his father needs to be someone who has a negative past history of being at odds with the Corinthos clan, so that would primarily mean Alcazars or Zaccaras, both tempting possibilities! The suggestion that the Wu family could be part of Oscar’s bloodline would also be a most interesting development, since I agree with the poster who says this kid has a vaguely Asian look about him. As for your other “Baby Daddy Candidates,” all I can add is I sincerely hope not, since none of these other characters really provides that much drama in terms of dealing with Carly—and by extension—-Sonny, were their son to be involved with Joss. Quite frankly, I’m not sure that I really care at this point who spawned this junior dude….especially if it means bringing on more newbies to expand his character’s actual purpose besides giving Jax’s daughter a beau.

Francesca Bruno
Francesca Bruno

I was struggling with myself trying to discern this child’s ethnicity.
I must agree with you. His face does have Asian characteristics and the Wu family tie makes the most sense.

Shay
Shay

And yet, Francesca, Oscar has an Italian surname which could possibly indicate a European background…perhaps even a royal one? (Not another Cassadine?) I have been wondering if the choice of “Nero” holds some sort of significant clue as to this character’s true identity? It’s probably just a false moniker intended to conceal his real parentage, but it does beg the question of whom is his “Aggripina the Younger?” Hmmm….the plot thickens! (As for this young actor’s physical appearance, Garren actually rather reminds me of the decidedly non-Asian Joseph Gordon-Levitt when he played Tommy Solomon on “Third Rock from the Sun!” Perhaps he was tapped to play Oscar because he has such an ethnically-ambiguous look and thus could convincingly be a Wu, Cassadine, Alcazar, Zaccara, Corinthos, etc.? )

Timmm
Timmm

Yeah, he could be related to Brad and then we MIGHT get to see him and Lucas? I think its Bensch’s kid. BUT, for Joss to like Oscar, Oscar has to be relted to a mob connection.

Francesca Bruno
Francesca Bruno

Hi #Shay. The ladies in my circle of friends who watch GH believe that Oscar’s Agrippina is Brenda. But I do not recall Brenda as being ruthless.

She could have married someone by the surname Nero, who adopted Oscar, but later left. It could also be a lie making Oscar not so innocent. Is he looking for revenge?
Some of my friends insist it will be Dante receiving the shock of his life.
Why the name Nero. It means black and it could be a symbol of evil.
A family trait?

Going back to Ancient Rome is brilliant. Nero was either mentally ill or a monster as he laughed playing his fiddle as Rome burned. He was the last of the “dinastia Giulio-Claudia”, as per, Giulio (Cesare) and Claudio.
The legend among us Italians ( those of us who were born there) is that Nero was renamed after he started showing signs of having a black temperament.

Oscar could be hiding a dark personality. This presents more and more reasons to believe he could be the spawn of all those men you have mentioned.
He may also be related to Ava, the arsonist.

Shay
Shay

Hmmmm….could that possibly mean “Cesare”=”Cesar?” (As in Faison????)The plot thickens….

Celia
Celia

I don’t know if Francesca is using the name in the literary device sense of play-on-words…….that’s a very clever technique….I love it, especially if it is meant in reference to Faison.
However, Giulio Cesare = Julius Caesar ( Anglicized, LOL). So, it could have been an accidental truth??
I wonder if the writers are keen enough to bring Roman symbolism into the equation. Claudius and Agrippina were, indeed, Nero’s parents, and Nero fits the countenance of being Faison’s issue. Great theory that, but is Oscar his real name?
I hope he is the product of one of Sonny’s enemies…..except, I’d not look forward watching Joss get hurt . Poor kid; her first puppy love? A puppy love which could turn into something more serious as they grow older? Sigh!! To be that young again!! Fresh, innocent love….
Still…who’s the Mom?

Jimh
Jimh

Dante…and Brenda is his mom!!!

Celia
Celia

Good one, Jimmy….all these guesses….it could be anyone. LOL.

Fanny
Fanny

OMG Jimh ‼️‼️ that’s been my thought from the beginning.

Celia
Celia

Miss Fanny!!!! There you are….ma chere amie! Bien sur, vous m’ avez manque’.
And, a good thought it is, Fanny. Yet, son or grandson, he would still have Sonny’s tainted blood.
Such a nice kid…he should be left ‘pure’.
A bientot, j’espere?

Celia
Celia

PS….Jimmy, I did say it could be Sonny’s grandson…who knows. I have no clue how many women with whom Sonny has dallied ( or still dallying off screen–LOL) in the past—just with those in the past three years:, which is one too many: Mamma mia and sacrebleu–Hugh Hefner in a Sonny mask?? Too short??

Shay
Shay

Oh, CeeCeeGirl!!!!…Sonny’s “tainted blood?” LOL! The depth of your derision for this polarizing character is an endless font of hilarity….my compliments! I realize you cannot help yourself from so colorfully composing such comedic commentary…it comes as naturally as breathing! (Much like my expressions of boundless disdain for Alexis! Hey, we all have our bête noirs!)

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee….Glad you liked the “slampuppy” reference.. I glommed onto that lovely little term via a college friend from the Midwest….thought it was a warm and fuzzy way to describe someone who’s known for something not-so-cute and charming! Don’t you just love regional-speak? By the way, I think my all-time favorite word for a female of “loose morals” came from some childhood pals who hailed from Hingham, Mass…I won’t spell it out, but it’s probably not unfamiliar to you and yours given your own geographical specifics….Hint: Nine letters….Begins with a “p” and ends with an “e”…..and is an integral part of a hydroelectricity installation!!!! Got it? Lol.

Shay
Shay

Hey, CeeCeeGirl….I gather your “risqué reply” that failed to pass the moderator’s muster was in reference to the above “slampuppy” post? Well, yes, I can certainly understand why….which is the reason I was so discreet when I initially described said Massachusetts lingo for a particular sort of gal. But can you at least tell me this: Did you get my drift and is that still a popularly-used term in “Kennedy Country?” Inquiring minds want to know!

Steve
Steve

Rocco is ok because he’s really young, but do you think Maurice Bernard would agree to play the grandfather of a teenager almost old enough to drive?

Celia
Celia

As you know, Jimmy, I have a lack of knowledge on most of GH history….So, why does everyone keep mentioning Dante? Was he involved with Brenda, too? I thought she was exclusively Sonny’s?
Holy moly……it’s so ridiculous!! PC residents are as inbred as Vineyarders. The offspring, by medical logic, should all be deficient.

Jimh
Jimh

I stopped watching years before Brenda was on but did tune in on occasion…i did not see the episodes but i did read somewhere i think in soap digest that they did have an affair!!!

Thanks, Jimmy.

@Shay.
Well, Shay…it’s like this…..I did get your drift. But, the word? I had to ask my husband. I made the mistake of elaborating. Ergo, the ‘deadbolt’ on my comment. LOL.

Shay
Shay

Well, CeeCeeGirl, I figured that even if you were not aware of that old chestnut of a term, your hubby had probably encountered it somewhere during the course of his life in the great state of Massachusetts….like a locker room, perhaps??? LOL. Keep in mind, it is certainly not in my usual arsenal of vocabulary words deployed to describe those femmes who are most prone to assuming the supine position! However, it is one deeply engrained in my memory due to the heady mix of great nostalgia for long ago summers and the immense shock that I still recall from being introduced to such a bold label at a rather impressionable age! (I practically gave my mother the vapors when I shared with her that little gem during what marked my tweener years!) Need I say more??? I think NOT!

Celia
Celia

@Shay.
Maura West is a Bostonian, as well….or from the immediate area. Once in a while I catch a very distinct Bostonian intonation…fleetingly, but there.
Massachusetts is known to have a language of its own—your word is not used as often; only one from Massachusetts would know….just as my husband and I are still dubbed “barneys” in Boston slang.

Tom

It could be the guy who tried to kill Sonny this last time. But watch it be Jax. It’s happened on soaps before. ‘Erica, no! He’s your brother!’

I think it will be Dr. Bensch. They look like they could be father and son.

Patrick
Patrick

I hope i’m imagining it – he’s kinda giving me the heebie jeebies

his direct approach and word play…

1. when he asked Jordan out… that was out of nowhere
2. his “relationship with Kiki. don’t get kinky… I like him too much
3. his asking Alexis out. for the love of god.. please… not with Alexis.. she’s so grandiose and nit picky. playing with her stiletto.

this is going to go some where… I just don’t know how. he’s a good actor.. I wonder what he looks like behind those glasses.

we haven’t even seen his bedside manner

yeah, they could easily be father/son. I hope he’s hanging around… wouldn’t he be a much better doc @GH – then Michael Easton ‘ Finn ? he just isn’t going any where… same could be said for Franco.

it was funny how Franco asked “Drew” if he remembered any thing from his childhood… and “drew” expression looked pensive .. that seizure did some thing

Patrick
Patrick

PS: @ the “ask Man Landers ” reveal partay or whatever it was

what a disappointment Jennifer Bassey “MUST” feel about daytime

” WHO was the HOTTEST ” – Felicia ! YIKES .. my lady is stunning us all

Celia
Celia

Yes, I like the idea of Alexis dating someone normal. I wonder if she’ll expect the good doctor ( that’s questionable….who is he, really!?) to prance around in his speedos underwear. Won’t compare to Julian’s backside, sigh!
But, there are breathable elephant shaped speedies available. Hmmmm.

Shay
Shay

Oh, but CeeCee, “Alexis” and “normal” are not compatible concepts….this is a woman who thrives on danger and drama, so she craves only the likes of men who bring both of these negative aspects to her life! That’s what really turns her on…sure, Julian may look like an underwear model, but it’s the lethal aura of criminality that really seals the deal for her each and every time….think Sonny, Shawn, Jerry and Ric! Unrepentant bad boys all….Unless this doctor is not so good—as we seem to suspect—-then his chances at sweeping this character off her famously rounded heels is next to nil!!!!

Celia
Celia

Lol….what a picturesque scene you paint, Shay. Shawn? I don’t know who he is. I know Jerry, but had no idea he was one of her ‘boys’. And, Ric, of course, is Molly’s father, yes?
I also know she had a thing going with Ned? ….or, was what I saw that fateful night when Julian and Olivia made Leo, a one-night stand?
You really think Alexis is destined to sit in a fetid state of felonious limbo forever, when it comes to choosing a man?
The good doc gives me the creeps. I may be wrong, but I smell a rat. I actually did smell two rats on Y&R instantly ( Zack and Graham)…… as it is wont to be the case, no one pays attention to my predictions. LOL.
Dr. Bensch ( sp.), intruded himself into Kiki’s life out of nowhere….bells went off in my head. I may be wrong….perhaps he saw the talent and proficiency in her and acted upon it.
Let’s just say I hope he’s a good guy and Alexis will prove to one and all, she’s on the road to salvation? Ha!!
Somewhere along the way, I have developed a sort of ‘simpatia’ for her. Can’t explain it.

Timmm
Timmm

Bensch is ONE of the only newer characters I am clinging to. I’m sure he will have skeletons BUT for now, I bet he is the one who called the dean and reported Parker. Alexis was happy they got caught and when she finds out Bensch was the caller, she will whip out one of her dresses from the eighties!

Shay
Shay

OMG, Timmmbo! You had my mouth all agape when I first read that Alexis “will whip out one of her….” Need I expound any further? I mean we are talking about a character well-known for her um, lack of modesty when it comes to displaying certain fulsome physical assets! Thank God you were only talking about vintage apparel! LOL. (Of course, I would expect nothing less, supreme gentleman that you are….)I don’t know though about Dr. Bensch….it seems like there may be a beast lurking behind those nerdy specs….and is it just me, or do I think his interest in the ladies may skew quite a bit younger, as in the fair and comely Kiki???

Celia
Celia

Odd, eh, Shay? I don’t see my post. ….glad you got it, though.
So, you agree about Dr. Bensch? As I said a few times, already; he rubs me the wrong way. That’s why I remarked Kiki should watch her back.
He is way over-his-head where Kiki is concerned….too solicitous. He’s a ‘big’ doctor with a ‘big’ name…and, she’s basically an underling.
Unless, ohhh, unless, he’s Silas Clay in disguise?? Maybe he is a vampire, related to Caleb, taking different human forms?
This would explain his fatherly protection. Do vampires love their kin?
I am glad you dispelled my concern for Timmm. LOL.

Celia
Celia

A dress from the ’80’s? That’s rich, LOL!

Shay
Shay

Hey there, CeeCee!…..Per your remarks which indeed reached my inbox? (Yay!)–LOL!!!–and I do so hope our dear Timmmy was not traumatized by my cheeky comments about my favorite “whipping post!’ (No pun intended!)….I think he knows us well-enough to realize we are just two (and too…) fun-loving girls who share the same sort of wicked wit and no offense to his personal character would ever be intended….his gallantry is already safely established and well-documented here! At any rate, I’m not so sure the same will be able to be said about Dr. Bensch when all is said and done….there is something oddly off-putting about him that is screaming “Svengali” to me! Beware, beware, clueless Kiki….me thinks there is a whole lotta protege’ grooming going on here for you to be his “Dr.Trilby…and maybe even the object of some “Bensch pressing?” (Perhaps the canny and crafty Ava will eventually sniff him out after she finishes aiding “Patient 6” and of course, devouring her latest prey, the fallen priest-boy!)

Shay
Shay

Yes, CeeCee….There is something about Dr. Bensch that gives me the heebie-jeebies…oh, it’s subtle, but it’s there, all right…..a rather crafty and cunning vibe lurking just below the surface masquerading in a supposedly benign, affable and well-meaning facade! Nope, I simply don’t trust him, either! The question is this MD’s motivation….is he merely a common, garden-variety letch or does he have a far more specific agenda beyond liking the girls young and pretty, as we both apparently suspect? Hard to say at this juncture, yet he most likely has some sinister connection to a previous Port Charles baddie! (But which one/s???? Back to the same old guessing games, at least for those of us who forever tend to make things nice and complicated! Hmmmmm….can you say Cassadines? That’s always the default GH “bensch”-mark for evildoing escapades, isn’t it mia amica????)

Celia
Celia

@Shay.
Yup, Shay….Dr. Bensch ( great display of play-on-words, there….”bensch”-mark…..you do have a way with words, Shaybelle.
Needless to say, we may be seeing something that isn’t there, as with Oscar.
However, my instinct are pretty sharp; and, unless the writers have yet to “assign” the doc to one specific role ( in their heads), which would not surprise me one bit, those instincts are screaming to scrutinize every aspect of this possible, semi-Dr. Frankenstein.
A Cassadine, say you? Hmmmmm…..haven’t they also sown very fertile seeds globally?

Shay
Shay

Just to clarify, CeeCee, I don’t necessarily think that Dr. Bensch is related by blood to the Cassadine clan….but given his professional background, I’m thinking he could definitely be a past associate…perhaps he was part of Victor’s creepy Crichton-Clark house of bio-medical horrors, or dealt with Helena in reference to her many mad scientific experiments of yore! It would have been a great notion to have him attached to Liesl and her demented Swiss clinic, but since she’s pretty much persona non-grata in Port Charles these days, I doubt her influence will have much of a role in any upcoming mayhem, although I certainly wish to the contrary! (She’s one of my all-time favorite GH characters…ever!) Of course, we both may be looking for links that don’t exist…wouldn’t be the first time, eh? Quite frankly, I must compare our inclinations for such fanciful ruminations to those of daydreaming in class during our school years. I don’t know about you, but whenever I wasn’t being properly challenged or engaged in the presented subject matter, my unfettered thoughts took flight near, far and everywhere in-between. I do believe the same can be said about those unfulfilling, dead-end plots that have too often been a GH trademark during these past few years…they have served to fuel our seemingly endless quests for underlying meaning and purpose in far too many less-than-satisfying storylines! Anyway, thank you for the lovely compliment! And speaking of “words,” I do have to ask if your twin (Elle) and you were ever prone to “idioglossia?” I have known many sets of identicals in my life—mostly male….and what fascinating subjects they were!…LOL—although I have yet to encounter any who engaged in this particular phenomenon.

Oscar, no excitement going on there..
there is zero build up to anything concerning him.
Who his father would be ehh who cores, there is absolutely no drama or anything interesting about it.

Stories should have build up and a ”personality” ..
these writers can not write good drama .. even the Ava and Steve break out was dull, no drama it had some little action but absolutely no Suspenseful drama.

These stories are lackluster fails.. soaps are drama and GH is empty of suspense, intrigue, there’s nothing intense not even a cliffhanger, no on the edge moments, GH is empty of excitement.

this twin story should be bursting with power drama and it’s been a sleeper..
Steve wrestling with a couple of guys is not drama..

No luster, su….someone needs to shine them up: oh, shed the light PTB!
Nevertheless, I think SB is bringing it. Watch him pulverize the guy on the ship ( holding a lead pipe, no less, LOL).

Celia

Oops…did that happen, already, su? As I said, I subbed yesterday and forgot to set dvr.
Oh, what did Sam and Billy’s Jason say as they entered their house, today? They could have been speaking Chinese ( or Russian)….. for all I know.

Lindsay
Lindsay

Who’s OScar’s mother?

Francesca Bruno
Francesca Bruno

I don’t think she has been introduced yet, Lindsay.
I may have missed that episode. I am not sure.

Shay
Shay

Well, well, Francesca, it seems that your ladies’ circle may have been on to something when they (and you) posited the character of Brenda as being Oscar’s mother…there are internet rumblings that Vanessa M.is about to make a return appearance in Port Charles, which is suspiciously convenient given this particular storyline. The rumors also suggest that little “Nero” may not have the exotic pedigree many of us dreamed up for him on this thread, but something much “closer to home,” although I sort of hope not. That would definitely “color me disappointed” after all the exciting speculation which has ensued here.

Jovin
Jovin

He is kind of quirky like Spinelli. That would make him like one of the family. Knowing this show, the father will be some mortal enemy of Sonny’s. I have heard rumblings that Oscar is Lucien, Brenda’s son. But that would make everyone look really stupid! Kids don’t change that much from youngster to teenager, and Sonny was the kids stepfather for about 7 minutes. Could be anyone…Franco, Finn, either Jason… possibilities are endless. Even AJ!

Satan
Satan

” Kids don’t change that much from youngster to teenager”…

Really?

How long have you been watching this show??

Remember that Josslyn herself should actually be about 3 years younger than Jason’s son Jake. Jake was about 4 years old when he supposedly “died” and Joss was still in diapers then. Now she’s 14 and he’s about 10.

Actually the kid that Brenda had with Balkan Jr. would be roughly the same age as Joss, so if they were both SORASed to be the same age, that would at least be somewhat “logical” in soap terms. It’s not likely though, because if Brenda was his mother, we would all know that by now.. and last I heard, Vanessa was working for the direct competition (or at least it is on HellCable)

Jovin
Jovin

Lol! I meant in real life!!! I still have elementary teachers who remember me from when Inwas like 8…and I am in my 30’s! If Sonny was stepfather to the kid at one point, he should remember him.

Shay
Shay

There is a certain physical resemblance between Spinelli and Oscar, but does this kiddo possess super cyber skills and a superior vocabulary? That would be a more conclusive proof of paternity than any DNA test could provide!

AmyLea

Franco

Grant Putnam
Grant Putnam

No I wouldn’t like to know but he will probably be the son of Drew and the girl that played Carly2 who is returning to GH this fall.

Andrew Hass
Andrew Hass

I also think Tamara Braun if she is returning to GH will be playing Oscar’s mom and that means her character will have scenes with Sonny and Carly.Also i’m wondering if Oscar’s mom has a history with Sonny and/or Carly and that’s why Oscar is reluctant for them to meet his mom.Plus i’m wondering if what Oscar’s mom told him about his father isn’t true and whoever Oscar’s father is never knew he had a son.As for who Oscar’s father is, maybe it could be AJ which could give Michael a half brother.Plus since Sonny is the one who killed AJ, Oscar could hate Sonny

Celia
Celia

I certainly like your premise, Andrew. Any enemy of Sonny is a friend of mine.

Meg
Meg

Sonny is Oscar’s dad and Brenda is his mother.

gwill

Anyone but the awful Brenda! Anyone!

Pat
Pat

My guess is Sonny. He seems to have had his share of women. Make a great storyline to find out they are brother and sister

Celia
Celia

Hi, Pat,
Joss and Oscar, whether he is Sonny’s son or not, are not siblings….no bloodline; no shared DNA. Sonny is not Joss’ bio dad.
So, nothing would impeded their attraction for each other, except Carly, Jax, Oscar’s mother, or Sonny himself.

Linda
Linda

Could be Jax? haha!

Celia
Celia

LOL, Linda. Now, THAT would present the problem Pat, above, is talking about.

jeanine girard

May as well be Sonny. He’s had a number of kids pop up over the years! About time for another one from the past to step in, LOL!

He’ll end up being Sonny’s son and Joss will hate him even more! But I hope I’m wrong 🙂

I’m not sure yet, just hope it’s not Sonny’s. This would most likely break them up n I like to see them together.

Mary SF

As long as it isn’t Sonny or someone related to Sonny or works for Sonny—get my drift

It could be the new doc in town played by Jame DePalva…he’s also a mystery and will be a ladies man or ???

It one of cassidanes or it could be a Spencers or jason Morgan’s kids or hell. Fantastics

Satan

When they had the original kid playing Oscar (he was only in about two episodes) I thought they were going to make him an Alcazar offspring – because we all know that Jason never killed Alcazar (a favor to his “sister” Skye) and just evicted his ass out of the country instead.

But then they did the quick recast to this kid, so they clearly abandoned the Alcazar idea. This kid does like he could be part Asian though, so possibly a tie to the Wu family from the old Asian quarter storyline.

Who is his mother, by the way? Have we seen her yet?

Mo
Mo

The original Oscar got another job so GH had to recast the role.

Harry
Harry

I think I heard a rumor that Tamara Braun (the second Carly) is going to play his mother.
I hope not, that would be rather stupid.

Moviegal

They had to replace the original Oscar, because he got a much better paying nighttime gig.

Timmm

I think the new Oscar looks like Joseph Gordon Levitt.

Satan

Now that you mention it, he actually does. I hope that’s not the direction they’re going…. they will bring in Joseph Gordon Levitt in his “Third Rock From the Sun” character and make them cousins of Casey the Alien.

Valentin

TMJ
TMJ

That was my guess too.

Shay
Shay

With Jessica Tuck’s character as Oscar’s mother??? She may be Helena’s daughter, but I doubt Mikkos’ was her father, so technically she would have no true blood ties to Valentin .

Celia
Celia

I thought about that, Shaybelle….Valentin or Sonny as the father is too easy. Then again, some of this writing isvso simplistic…no originality, no foresight.
Why is Tuck in the picture? Something’s a’brewing….and it “ain’t” good news for Valentin.
As I said, anyone is the possible father.

Shay
Shay

‘Tis true, CeeCeeGirl….Maybe even Fluke???? (Or Luke….both guys certainly sowed enough wild oats through the years to make it plausible and feasible….but fingers crossed such will not be the case!) As for Tuck, her reason for being “in the picture” could be as simple as her former status as a OLTL-er, but I should hope that this time there will be some sort of method to Frank’s madness of relocating ever more Llanviewers to Port Charles….it’s getting a bit crowded with so many ex-ABC soap interlopers crashing GH!

Joe Wells
Joe Wells

It’s gonna be Julian and they’ll do the whole mob-Romeo and Juliette (rival mob kingdoms) thing. I’ll hate it, but betcha I’m right.

Shay
Shay

Well, Julian is already on his way to rivaling Sonny’s propensity for unbridled out-of-wedlock procreation….and once with the same shared slampuppy, no less!

Shay
Shay

Ooops!…I stand corrected…make that twice! (Both Olivia and of course, Alexis “Backseat Baby” Davis!)

Celia
Celia

HaHahaHa…..’slampuppy’? How novel !! I love it !!
But, but, but, Shay…Everyone in PC is inbred. Reminds me of Martha’s Vineyard. The natives are all related to each other, and still mating and breeding.

k/kay
k/kay

Shay I know you are not a fan of Julian but William DeVry is a good looking man and a big dog lover so the actor can’t be all bad! Won’t be posting much going thru some trauma with my sis and I am not handling it well she is the one with dementia and it has gotten worse hopefully some day find a cure you and Cee and Timm etc keep up the good fight !!!

Shay
Shay

@k/kay….My less than favorable opinion of Julian has always come down to his endlessly OTT sexual escapades with Alexis, and not from the actor’s particular portrayal of the character. I know I would find him quite palatable were he paired with a different partner who creates a more compatible coupling….maybe Cassandra? Mr. DeVry and Jessica Tuck would certainly make for an appealing and attractive romantic duo, don’t you think? By the way, I left a more personal message for you on a direct link found at another thread….I hope it reaches your inbox!

fuzzytomato
fuzzytomato

I think its Billy Miller’s character/Drew’s/Jason 2.0…

Yes, fuzzytomato. Linda said that as well. And, if truth be told…..after all is said and done? Drew as the fsther is the most likely assumption.

Of course, su, LOL . Felix, yup.

Kevin O.

It would be great if he was Finn’s kid, but my money is his dad is Drew/Jason2 (Billy Miller).

Joanna
Joanna

Oscar’s Mother is Brenda who we haven’t seen in a very long time, and his father is Dante or at least that is what I believe. So if this is true Oscar is tied to Sonny and. Carly and a few others along the way in Port Charles. Let’s see what the writers end up doing.

Keri
Keri

I think it would be interesting for Marcus to be his Dad. Stella never said that Marcus was Black! Or have him be A. J’s and the mom kept him from him. So Micheal would be his brother! But not kin to Joss

Timmy
Timmy

Well Sonny never has mastered both control

Celia

Has Sonny mastered anything, T?

Shay

Just spreading his seed far and wide….please pray poor Oscar is not yet more living proof of his prodigious propensity for propagating progeny!

Celia
Celia

@Shay.
Well, Shay, “his propensity for propagating progeny” will be his downfall…I hope.
The family jewels must be dented and shriveled up by now. “Them gems don’t shine no mo”.
I think “The Sonny Sex Saga” is soooo puke-worthy and ridiculous. Look at him. Why do women find him sexy and attractive? It’s all in the writers’ minds.
I don’t find Jax hot, or good-looking, but he has presence….he has a very attractive aura….so, I could have believed it with a character such as he. But, Sonny??

Shay
Shay

Perhaps, but when, CeeCee, WHEN? We’ve been waiting…and waiting…and waiting for that moment to arrive, only to be disappointed time and time again! Seems no matter what transpires, “The Sonny Always Rises” to the occasion with yet another gullible femme and before you know it, out pops the next non-prodigious progeny to join that not-so-exclusive club of “Corinthos Kids!” Happens like clockwork….you could almost set your watch to Sonny’s reproductive results….which begs the question, shouldn’t a great with child Martina be crashing back to Port Charles about….NOW?

Dr Helen Ruth
Dr Helen Ruth

He looks just like Billy Flynn, who plays Chad DiMera on DOOL. The kid is his!

Celia

LOL.

Celia
Celia

…..Or Paul on Days.

Satan

Ironically, some on here are speculating the Jessica Tuck character could be Oscar’s mom. She previously played Chad’s mother on Days. So that would make them “brothers”, sort of…..

Chad is too young to have a 14 year old son though.

Celia
Celia

Lol, Satan. Chad and Oscar do look alike. Remember, anything is possible in soapland.
Look at Lily ( Y&R)… suddenly, she’s mother to 15-year old twins. She’s my age….thirty.
So……
I love the idea of having a fifteen year old daughter…..like sisters. Fun. LOL.

dmr
dmr

The more important question is, WHO CARES?

Celia
Celia

No one, I guess, dmr. But, isn’t it fun???? Some of these answers are very entertaining…good enough for me. LOL.
There really is no ‘gravitational’ factor about this kid’s character. Very blah—uninteresting, so far. That may change, depending who his parents are, and how he deals with it.

Shay
Shay

It reminds one of a party game, CeeCeeGirl! There are so many clever possibilities as to whom this kiddo could belong, however, I strongly suspect that the actual answer to the question will probably prove far less scintillating than all of the creative out-of-the-box guesses that have been posited on this page. Let’s just hope the big reveal leads to a good story. You know, like the one when we found out the true identity of Nathan’s bio-daddy…Ooops….we’re still waiting for that major mystery to be solved!

Rodd
Rodd

Brad or Lucas? A drunken one-night stand to see if he was straight? OMG! That might Brad and Lucas something to do, so that’s probably a dumb idea.

Max or Milo? – I’d like that. Dr. Bench? – Okay, but no real thrill there. We don’t know enough about him to care that much. Finn – Doesn’t make any sense. Griffin – Did the priest stray once too often? Dante – Seriously? That would be weird. Sonny – Oh, Hell to the NO! Franco, Ned or either Jason 1 or 2 – Hope not, though possible, I guess.

Until we know who the boy’s mother is, it could be anyone in PC.

MisterK
MisterK

Would be VERY interesting to find out he’s a Jax…maybe not Jasper, but his brother Jerry. Timing would be right since Valentine is about to have a happy reunion with some friends from his “dark” past. Anyway, enjoy the weekend!
PS: loving the Patient 6 plot right now. Almost wish he didn’t come back to Port Charles for a while and we get to see him in action a bit more. See ya!

Shay
Shay

I love Jerry, so that would be too much fun to find out Oscar is his son, except for the fact that he would be Joss’s kissin’ cousin….yuck!

Celia

Hi, Shay,
I did answer you, mon amie….but, my answer must have bruised the moderators’ sense and sensibility. Too risque’? Avant garde?
I will leave it alone and rely on their discretion….I appreciate that. It is their job to sift through our comments.

Oscar is so believably – cute , endearing, sensitive, romantic, AND that’s so nice . ugh! what starts a love story I am accepting Jocelyn WHATS ruining this – her mom and Sonny ! Carly does not have a sensitive bone in her body. even with Sonny , she’s a jack deer tractor. with a loud mouth she’s already run roughshod over Oscar…. and Sonny with his bodyguards… trying to get all cute as Oscar mistook him for a park perv. look at what is happening to Nelle… is this a rerun of “Carly” at that age ? god.. I can’t keep up with all of Nelle past now. Michael is the worst acted character, ever. if you look at Nelle.. she looks confused … as if even she doesn’t know what’s going on. ALL this for : the worst couple on the show ? what a distraction of what’s going on. Yeah… i’m biting Yeah, I’m biting : hold on… not because this is good… story or writing… it’s because of the three MEN as actors who are hopefully trying to make this work. Roger Howarth – try as I might… I still do not want him with Liz. it struck me yesterday when Franco and “Drew” struck a chord. “why is it that we do what we do.” it was affecting as for Steve Burton… I still think his eyes are ahead of his acting… pan back and let him speak.. intelligibly. it was thrill and chill some… when “Drew” picked up SAM PHONE !!!!! WOAH. with STEVEBURTON on the other end. OK … these three men…. not the writing or characters who are bringing their presence to the show. OK – here me out. Anna and Finn. it’s a waste of time to continue to give Michael Easton any further time. it’s actually a sad state for Anna… she hasn’t worked since Paul Hornsby was fired. this cute banter back and forth is just that… nothing more than propping and it’s painful watching Anna go thru this… and it’s not really about Valentin after all this time. they need to just let this go and write Anna a story of her own. this is too cutesy cutesy for ME Finn. I certainly HOPE that Oscar is not his. GH has plenty of male actors who can cover. Dr. Bensch is certainly intriguing… bye bye Finn. as I’ve posted.. he’s just not their. Griffin : they may as well go all the way… and see the outcome or downfall of Griffin and Ava. dag! she’s so good with all the men anyway.. I really thought I saw something with her doctor as well. I am certain the good majority of GH fans can take or leave his righteous behavior as PRIEST. over this and over him … if he doesn’t start acting… he’s perfect fodder, we know next to nothing about what animal instinct he desires. what drives . over here Steve burton has a run in with… Read more »

Michael : the worst actor; he’s telling Nelle before he leaves.. “you have to meet me 1/2 way. bullcrap ! it’s just another plot point to see Nelle cower with tail. it wasn’t even right that the “two” of them jokingly acting out about him being landlord and she as tenant. submissive aint it ? then we get thru the muck of trust issues again… ??? for Michael ? give me an effin break. for ALL the firings and newbies… this is one area… since GH continues to lord over the dullard corinthos’. at the very least.. and this is bottom dwelling… GET AN ACTOR who can act. I swear his facial expression .. he needs a good slap. heave ho him out Nelle. you are stuck in this .. being related to Carly. it’s a damn shame.. as i’m still loitering for Nelle to break out.

ONE – 1 – prop for Sam. when “Drew” went in to his seizures… dang ! I was caught up.. but… didn’t it surprise you and ME to see Sam panic, crying, and wailing about for her lover.

course it was ad nauseum watching Monica tell Sam… this is was all because of her ( Sam ) that Jason/Drew came back to us.

I still regard Billy Miller as our current hey day … George Peppard
I am now giving Griffin an homage… of Robert Forster.. can we say “Jackie Brown. ” w/ Pam Grier – one of my favorite love stories ever

The coolest thing about Oscar is you can look at him and imagine him bearing a resemblance to any number of prospective babydaddies in the past and present Port Charles sphere….At this point, the kiddo is a blank slate, and there are so many possibilities where you could conceivably go, yeah, I can see (__________________) as his father! Which makes one wonder if the actual man in question will end up having any striking similarities to Oscar or will we all just feel the typical GH letdown when the cat is finally out of the bag? I certainly hope not!

If many of us don’t like so much focus on Sonny/crimelord//guns I surely don’t like to see Laura pointing a gun on Valantine. Especially after what happened in Las Vegas and the overwhelming scourge of all kinds of guns, etc. in the US themselves.

As for Oscar, I don’t really care much about who his parents are. But I do like him with Josselyn. In fact I’m having a hard time being interested in any GH stories right now, if that’s what you want to call them. You know…a ittle bit of this, a little bit of that…most of which have no continuity, or nothing to do with legacy GH at all. But I will admit to not minding the ManLanders story as a bit of light hearted relief, and a chance to give other characters a place in Port Charles.

I’m still loyal to GH, and it has become an afternoon habit. But as I mentioned before I have been finding a bit of a substitute from our soaps, and certainly real life weather to politics drama by watching reruns of “Murder She Wrote.” Easy stories, which even feature a lot of our soap actors in guest appearances (even Helena), the same as Castle has done. And even other notable actors…Magnum PI, George Clooney.

Patrick

i’m not loyal @GH

Patrick… Too many other things that we have come to expect are disappearing way to quickly. The tv landscape is rapidly changing, as well as other industries, their budgets and jobs. And it is totally out of our control except to stay plugged in where we can. So I try to be loyal to GH because it still does have it’s moments, and it has become my go-to hour in the afternoon. Better even a diluted version than none at all.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Should Drew Get The Flash Drive Back, But Lose The Last Five Years Of His Life In Doing So?

On Friday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) is faced with a dilemma that could change the course of his life forever.  It all comes down to DA Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), and her vendetta against Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), and how she is leveraging her possession of the flash drive that holds all of Drew’s memories and the key to his past.

In a confrontation at the Metro Court, Drew comes over to talk to Margaux, where he says he is not sure why he hasn’t taken it upon himself to turn her into the cops.  She adamantly points out that she is an attorney, and that he has no evidence that could be used against her in a court of law.  While she goes on about making Sonny pay for what he did to her father, she tries to get Drew to come along with her in her vendetta.  Drew refuses, not because of Sonny or Jason (Steve Burton), but he does not want to do this to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and have Danny be without his father.

Drew then stands up to her and tells he he knows she has been manipulating him for months. Even knowing she has the key to his life with the flashdrive that hold all of his missing years, Drew tells Margaux that she can hold this over his head, but even if he had the flashdrive there is a chance that the procedure to restore his memories could go wrong, and the sad fact that in doing the procedure, he will definitely lose the last five years of his life and all of those memories with Sam and more.  He says to Margaux that those memories mean everything to him.

A confident and irritated Marqaux tells him she is sure he will want the flash drive one day and that he knows her terms if she was to give it to him – helping her bring down Sonny and Jason for the murder of her father.   Drew is left with a difficult decision, while Margaux gets into an elevator and begins to cry over wanting to avenge her father’s death.  But little does she know, that evidence could prove that he was not the man she thinks he was.

So this begs the question to GH fans: Would you like to see Drew retrieve all of his memories as Andrew Cain, at the cost of losing the last five year of his life since being in Port Charles …  or should Drew leave his mind and memories alone and just go forward keeping the last five years in tact, and foregoing what other important history in his life that he may need to know now, or in the future?

Dancing with the Stars Juniors

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!

For archived and past episodes of Soap Nation Live, you can go to the official show page on Spreaker.com here.
