Dateline Port Charles: Babies, Babies, Babies!

It's always about the babies. So sick of the little stink machines being the driving catalyst behind every single storyline. Enough already! Can we toss them all into Pier 54 and get on with the adult adventures?

Fake Nurse Chloe resembles Britt, could she be another Faison spawn?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 205/11/2021

Interesting theory, especially after seeing the evil look on her face when she was locking away the antidote vials. It's like she was in on that all along, too.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 305/11/2021

Fake Chloe is back from the dead Nelle with plastic surgery

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 405/11/2021

Or transgendered Morgan!

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 505/11/2021

I was not a big fan of the little After School Special they did. The dialogue was all boilerplate talking points and felt forced and unnatural. The conversation between Cam and Trina was a little better than the one between the women, it felt more organic and authentic. They should have left it at that.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 605/12/2021

And now another baby....AAARGH!!!

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 705/13/2021

Nikolas Cassadine, Prison Owner. LOL.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 805/13/2021

Talk about a double edged sword. On one side, Nik buying the prison was a brilliant strategy for getting the upper hand over Cyrus and his reign over all things Pentonville, but on the other, I think it's going to fuck Shawn over big time. The expressions on Nik's face when Alexis and Shawn were talking about his wrongful imprisonment and finding Hayden's real shooter didn't bode well. Could be a nice recipe for some interesting conflict, though.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 905/15/2021

Does this happen? Are prisons bought by billionaires?

Does Amazon count?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 1205/15/2021

There are private prisons owned by corporations, yes. However, they are becoming more controversial. Even red-states are realizing that they do not actually save money and many places are turning against them. However, Nicolas being able to do that in New York State is poetic license because it is against the the law in that state to privatize a prison.

So, Elijah's business is Llantano Properties. Wonder if Eterna is one of the properties he has in his portfolio?

According to the latest ratings report GH has seen an overall increase in the ratings especially in the total ratings,18-49, 25-54 has even tied with The View over last year. Even B&B and Y&R have seen an increase in their ratings compared to last year while Days ratings has.........đź’Ł

Cyrus looks like a child-molesting hobo.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 1705/16/2021

Quite a bit like a carny, actually.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 1805/16/2021

So we had a Cornith shoutout today. GH also visited Cornith in 2013 when Luke and Holly found Laura tied up in the Alden mansion basement.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 1905/17/2021

"How's the bidet situation in here?" Hilarious. I think JPS was channeling his Guy character from Frasier on that one.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2005/17/2021

They should have named Elijah, Brian Frons, because what Elijah did to Cornith is what Frons did to our beloved Llanview and Pine Valley.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2105/18/2021

Does “Mike” even try to learn his lines? Do the writers even write for him or just tell him to make it up as he goes?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2205/20/2021

Monica sucked Sean Donnelly’s dick back in the day.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2305/20/2021

I watched GH on Monday for the first time in years. May I saw that I don't know which is worse to watch: the actor playing Sonny or the actor playing Jason. They are both so mannered and wooden. I feel so sorry for the actresses who were playing opposite them. And Maurice Bernard is looking both haggard and paunchy. I realize he's playing barhand, but they could at least dress him to look better if he is (astonishingly) their "star."

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2405/20/2021

Nina looks like a crazed cult victim when she gets that wide-eyed goo-goo look for Sonny-Mike, like she is in his thrall.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2505/20/2021

Pleasantly surprised they've continued the Britt/Jason scenes. Not much of a difference, but it seems that SB is at least paying attention during those scenes

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2605/20/2021

Another good thing is that now they seem to be leaning towards Britt not having Huntington's, so that means she can stick around longer.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2705/20/2021

Britt is the first relationship I ever liked Jason in. She's one of those actors who brings out the best in everyone she works with. I still can't stand Sonny but I can stand him a bit more with Nina than with Carly. I still detest the teen group, Trina being the best of the 3 but that's not saying much. I just can't watch Jax knowing what kind of piece of shit the actor is. All in all though I'd say GH has improved quite a bit in the past few months. I'd say it's gone from a D- to a B. Don't shoot me but I miss Franco. At least Cam wasn't so repulsive in scenes with him.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2805/20/2021

Watros has the bug eyes.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 2905/20/2021

R28 Unless an actor is a child molester or rapist, I don't care about their personal life and can separate it from the character. I still like Jax and hope one day he and Carly will be together for good, because that is the pairing I prefer. Just like on Y&R, I've always preferred Nikki and Jack to Nikki and Victor, though I believe I'm in the minority.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3005/20/2021

Was that a big, fat anvil when Sasha screamed "You're not my father!" at Cyrus? I must say it felt like she just signed her own death warrant when she humiliated the fuck out of him with all that talk of how hot her studly young lover was and how he did things to her that Cyrus never could. Will we soon be looking at charges of Filicide with a side order of Feticide?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3105/20/2021

I will watch tomorrow's ep

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3205/20/2021

R31 Did Sasha's bump grow overnight? She just found out she was pregnant, now she has a bump.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3305/20/2021

If the rumored mandate that they could no longer do stories about rapists is true (suddenly killing off Franco and not bringing RH back as Todd) then it also seems that there was another mandate to start making the females smarter and no longer helpless victims.

Superspy Anna has been mostly portrayed as a bumbling fool for over a decade now, but in recent weeks, she's suddenly been making good choices again. That's also been a very recent switch for other females on the show. It's long overdue and we'll need to see how long it lasts.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3405/20/2021

So are they going with a Sam/Dante pairing and a Jason/Brit one? Because I like those couplings much better.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3505/20/2021

I find both Dante and Sam boring as can be but I'm glad if they're together so I can ff'd them at the same time the way I did Sam and Jason. The only one I found interesting was Drew. I actually liked him with Sam and as a Q and with Franco. He made characters I usually don't watch watchable.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3605/20/2021

OMG! I really enjoyed today's special episode. I really love that they managed to work Tiffany in. I wish we could have veteran centric episodes at least once a month, not just when one dies.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3705/21/2021

I take it Sharon Wyatt is using some kind of computerized voice assistance device? Her words had a very strange cadence and inflection, at times it sounded almost like a man's voice.

The mystery caper was reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3805/21/2021

Why didn’t they show Sharon Wyatt?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 3905/22/2021

R39, Sharon is very ill with osteonecrosis (bone death in jaw).

They still could have at least showed Sharon. So disrespectful toward her after so many years on the show.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4205/22/2021

[quote]They still could have at least showed Sharon. So disrespectful toward her after so many years on the show.

Maybe she preferred not to be shown as she is now, but rather remembered for the great beauty she was. Travel might not be so easy in her condition, either.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4305/23/2021

John Reilly's real life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, played Annie Donnelly on Friday's episode.

I thought she did a great job. When I heard they were casting her for the one-day roll, I dreaded she'd be awful and barely able to deliver a line. So, I was delighted to see Caitlin Reilly proved me wrong.

And the show certainly left the door open for Annie Donnelly to become a regular GH character down the line.

Offsite Link
by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4405/23/2021

R43 I would totally understand her not wanting to be seen on camera due to her condition. She was one of if not the most stunning women in the history of daytime, even if she isn’t vain there would undoubtedly be comments from “fans.” I love, however, that they still managed to work her into the show and she was able to not only pay tribute to her friend but to bring closure to what was to me one of the best love stories soaps have ever done. I would love it if they would occasionally work in more vets who maybe can’t be in the studio through phone calls or if they are up to it zoom.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4505/23/2021

Also door was left open for more. This was John/Sean tribute.

They can show Annie and Tiffany again and do a psa on Sharon’s condition/illness rather than use time in this tribute episode for that.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4605/23/2021

Not the best mystery storyline the show has ever done, but you can tell that the actors really loved working with JR and deeply miss him.

Hopefully, they can continue this with Sean's files containing evidence to send Peter away

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4705/23/2021

It was a wonderful tribute. Cute mystery that could be wrapped up in an hour and set up for future storylines.

Only vet missing in Friday show was Kin Shriner.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4805/23/2021

R48 and Lucy.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 4905/23/2021

R22 Dude, Benard's been ad-libbing for YEARS, Come on.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 5105/24/2021

Please let there be a serial killer storyline (ala DOOL) or have Cyrus get rid of Sasha, Willow, Finn's new son (a terrible actor with a single look of confusion in every scene), and the weird-looking Black chick from Passions. I would also like them to get Sean out of prison and have him working with Carly to replace Jason while Sonny is gone.

Three of the five nominations for the Daytime Emmy Lead Actress category are from GH: Genie Francis as Laura Collins, Nancy Lee Grahn as Alexis Davis, and Finola Hughes as Anna Devane/Alex Marick.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 5505/24/2021

The Metro Court is owned by two women, both of whom are depicted as millionaires, one of which is married to the mob and just became the mafia "godmother," yet it must have less security than that HoJo's where Connie Francis was raped.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 5605/24/2021

No nom for Maura West? She must be PISSED!!!!!

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 5705/24/2021

My guess is it will go to NLG because she seems to have something on some bigwigs for a woman her age to keep getting so much screen time for such an annoying character.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 5805/24/2021

R58 Genie could get it because she has never won a Lead Actress Emmy, and is one of the last daytime "superstars" left, that has any name recognition outside of the genre.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 5905/24/2021

What happened to the characters of Jackie and Gregory?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 6705/25/2021

Thank god no Eden McCoy or William Lipton. They didn’t do anything emmy worthy. GH got the most nominations of any soap. Yay!!

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 6805/25/2021

The Daytime Emmys changed their rules and processes. So as not to have another Patrika Darbo scandal.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 6905/25/2021

Alan Sarapa is a moron. Just because Eden McCoy and Lipton have been nice to him on twitter, he thinks they should automatically get an emmy nomination. The fact is, they are NOT good actors. They suck. They did not get nominated for emmys. Thank god. Justice.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7005/26/2021

Today's episode was a very traditional May Sweeps episode of the kind we rarely get anymore. Also, I like the Peter flashbacks we have been seeing all week leading up to hopefully his death on Friday. The British soaps I have been watching do that often for a special week when a villain is being killed off. Also, I know people on here tend to hate Jason, and I usually do as well, but I really like him and Britt and their love scene today was one of the better ones I've seen in awhile. 99% of the time he appears to be on acting autopilot, but in his Britt scenes. It's like he is trying for the first time in many, many years.

Also, the "nurse" really seems like a retread of Allison Perkins from OLTL, her devotion to Peter seems just like Perkins devotion to Mitch Laurence.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7105/26/2021

What was the Patrika Darbo scandal?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7205/26/2021

It was a mess in 2018, when they ended up not awarding the Emmy to anyone in the Outstanding Guest Performer in a Digital Drama category, because it was determined Darbo had appeared in the previous season of The Bay and submitted scenes from more than one episode, both of which was in violation of the rules. Thomas Calabro from The Bay was also disqualified. Jennifer Bassey, Chad Duell, and Mike E. Winfield, were also in the category and were not disqualified yet the Emmys decided to not award anyone rather than give it to one of the three non-disqualified actors.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7305/26/2021

Is Patrika Darbo related to Chrissy Metz?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7405/26/2021

She didn't come to visit her son Chase once since he was hospitalized.

RoHo still just being goofy RoHo. Not even a hair color change.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7605/27/2021

Is RoHo back on today's show? If so, who is he playing? That he will play whoever it is as a clown I have no doubt.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 7705/27/2021

Well if you insist:

Hiker in woods who comes across Maxie in labor, says he is a doctor and his name is Austin. I didn't catch if that was his first name or if he is Dr. Austin. Delivers her baby.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8105/27/2021

Thank you R78! I will have to check out today's show. I'm glad he didn't die his hair. It always looks awful. I was afraid this time he'd come back with frizzy bright red hair like Bozo The Clown. If he the same at the very least Liz and her kids and Scotty should make some reference to it. Not like with the very many characters the actor playing Finn where no one seemed to notice someone who looks exactly like 2 or 3 other people who lived in that town before came to PC.

Well, thanks again R78. It's appreciated.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8205/27/2021

Oh god! Poor RH, is first day back and he has to look up Maxie's snatch. Jesus! So he's finally playing a doctor.

What is it with GH and babies born in the woods!

Thanks R78. I love to be spoiled and I'm glad you told us.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8305/27/2021

thanks r81

and yet again we speculate on which legacy character RH or Kimberly Brown(or anyone else cast) and we are always let down...

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8405/27/2021

Sonny or Mike is now fucking Nina? I usually hate Sonny but don't mind him as Mike. I stopped watching GH months ago because I loathe that fucking cunt who plays Chase and have always hated Chad Duell. They are two of the worst "actors" I have ever seen and I bust a vein every time I see those two fuckers.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8505/27/2021

If RH is going to stay on the show, they're going to need to give him some ties to PC. Right now, it's pretty open ended. He could be Jimmy Lee Holt's son?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8605/27/2021

[quote]If RH is going to stay on the show, they're going to need to give him some ties to PC. Right now, it's pretty open ended. He could be Jimmy Lee Holt's son?

I'd say there's a very good chance that he is related to Jimmy Lee or Alan; either would make him part of the Qs. There was a JLH mention in the last week or two and I wondered if that was foreshadowing. Any chance "Austin's" last name is Gatlin? The amount of times they mentioned Pautuck I figured the town must be significant somehow so I looked it up:

Pautuck

Pautuck, New York is a fictional city located in New York.

Charity Gatlin was introduced as the widowed store owner of Gatlin's, in Pautuck. Alan Quartermaine stumbled upon her store in July of 1986 after he had faked his death and had amnesia.

Alan’s brother Jimmy Lee Holt faced a financial ruin when some of his waterfront properties collapsed. His wife Celia could not tolerate being destitute. She left Jimmy Lee and Port Charles for good. In a strange turn of events, Jimmy Lee married Charity Gatlin and moved to Pautuck to help her run Gatlin's.

In May 2021, Maxie is at GH with Dr. Navarro while Peter talks to Maxie’s live-in nurse Fake Chloe. He wants Maxie to grow to trust her new nurse before she is taken to Pautuck, New York to deliver the baby. Peter says that he will disappear with Maxie and the baby afterwards as a new family.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8705/27/2021

r87

that would be awesome but you are giving the writers too much credit

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8805/27/2021

Maybe Charity got pregnant from Alan and she and Jimmy Lee raised the child, without informing anyone, and he now Austin. Being Alan's son would give him part of the Q inheritance since Jimmy Lee and presumably any children of his were excluded.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 8905/27/2021

Great detective work r87 They could have just had Peter send them to an unnamed getaway, put they mentioned that town for a good reason. I'm now betting Alan's the father making Dr. Austin a legacy at GH.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9005/27/2021

It would also make sense because when Franco thought he was Drew, his scenes with Monica were great. RoHo is really good in scenes with an older woman. His best OLTL scenes were with Vikki, so to create a similar relationship with Monica would be great.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9105/27/2021

I loathe Sam. She never laughs or smiles. It might be the Botox, but she seems permanently miserable.

Cyrus is dreadful.

Cameron acts with his underbite. His anger comes across as that of a five-year-old.

Lots of shitty performers.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9205/27/2021

Whoever it was that was attacking Cameron's "acting" before is right. He is awful. I don't know if he was always awful or just became awful.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9305/27/2021

[quote]Being Alan's son would give him part of the Q inheritance since Jimmy Lee and presumably any children of his were excluded.

Not to mention those ever important ELQ voting shares!

Watch them keep us guessing by making Austin the last name, but then his first name will be Alan or James. LOL James could be for either one because it's also Alan's middle name.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9405/27/2021

Wondering if any long-term GH watchers can answer this question; How many times has Maxie been kidnapped and held hostage? Doesn't this happen to her like every 3 years?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9505/27/2021

Nixon Fails is so boring. Nina has no plan to use amnesiac Mike to get revenge on Carly? No subtle hints or screeching anvils that Nelle might still be alive? Multiple dangling OLTL carrots but not one character appearance? These writers suck.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 9605/28/2021

R96 = The OLTL Baiting is one of my biggest complaints too....Maybe the scripts were written when they thought they were bringing Roger Howarth back as Todd Manning?....Why can't they bring on Nikki Smith as a bar patron in Nixon Falls, boozing it up--even for one episode?

Is Peter really dead? They better not tease us like this.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10105/28/2021

This is my issue with the supposed ABC directive about Todd couldn’t come back because he was a rapist. Todd wasn’t Luke. While Luke was for the most part allowed to bury his act of rape, expect for that storyline about when Lucky found out, Todd was never allowed to forget. Todd went to jail and was constantly reminded of his rape of Marty. While never becoming fully good, the show showed that he rehabilitated and showed genuine remorse for his actions. I guess gray is dead and only black and white remains.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10205/28/2021

Ok, I totally was not expecting that those two would end up being the weekly cliffhanger.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10305/28/2021

I have not been a regular fan of GH for decades, but I watched the show today. There was a shootout. After the shootout, Carly, Jason, Nicolas, and some of the others were standing around talking. Is there a reason why they did not leave the scene of the shootout? Dante eventually stopped by and arrested Jason. That arrest could have been avoided if they had left the scene. I don't know anything about mob wars, but it made no sense. I think General Hospital needs to stop with all this mob madness. They have been doing this for years--and I am not impressed. They should bring in a new group of hospital interns and residents and create drama around them.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10405/28/2021

R104 I would love that too. However, I don't think that would ever happen until and unless MB retires. If it was up to me I'd split the show in two. Have a 30min soap called GH that focused on the hospital, and one called PC that focused on the mob, stuff, make it Edge of Night like. They could share cast members when needed.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10505/28/2021

R105, it is funny that you mention The Edge of Night because I was thinking that GH is reminiscent of EON, which was a soap centered around crime, criminals, police officers, and the like. For years, I have thought that GH's title card (with the dark skyline at night) looks like it would be more appropriate for a modern-day EON.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10605/28/2021

R106 Edge was a soap I really wish I'd had the chance to experience.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10705/28/2021

I don't think that will happen r104. Allegedly some years back ABC was thinking of pulling back on the mob stories or even eliminating it all together. Supposedly viewers in some large tv markets in New England told ABC to keep the Mob around because they loved it and wouldn't be as interested in hospital stories.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10805/29/2021

In Ron's first year at HW, he cut back on the mob stuff and focused more on the hospital. Reports at the time said viewers in NYC area and Northeast wanted more Sonny, so Ron had to up the mob stuff by his second year.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 10905/29/2021

So, let me get this straight -- characters like Franco and Todd Manning, both rapists, have to be put out to pasture, but mobsters like Sonny and Jason are the show's heroes. Sonny has pushed drugs, murdered people, harmed young women, and that's okay? Soap operas as a genre have made criminals the "anti-heroes" -- Luke, Marco Dane, Todd Manning. My recommendation is to put away all the criminals and stop encouraging people to romanticize them. Sonny is a punk -- making him more sympathetic than, say, Cyrus or another other baddie, doesn't make him good. Quality in soaps comes from making people complex and putting them in complex situations. The viewers have been fed "comic book" soaps for sometime now and they have forgotten that what made soaps great was people who were flawed, yes, but not competely morally deficient.

R108 They should do a new study.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11105/29/2021

Here’s hoping we find Peter dead on those stairs today.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11206/01/2021

It's more likely he sustains a head trauma that leaves him with amnesia. Fast forward- he heals, but fakes continued amnesia to avoid prosecution and milk sympathy and forgiveness because he's pretending to be "good" now.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11306/01/2021

R113 That is exactly what will happen. The writers have only about 3 or 4 go to stories. Especially on a shit show like GH.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11406/01/2021

Unfortunately, r113 is probably right as there is no way LW is going to let them can her younger bf, she needs him employed and in her sight at all times.. She will also continue to demand he be paired with non-threatening to her (aka chubby) partners.

I'm guessing Peter sold The Invader to Cameron Mathison?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11706/01/2021

Oh, shit, that's right. Real Chloe must be stinking up a storm by now. I'll bet even the rats are scared. Is there a garbage strike in Port Chuck? You would think someone would have noticed by now.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11806/01/2021

So Maxie and Brook Lynn don’t notice a resemblance between Franco and Austin?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 11906/01/2021

R119 I guess they are doing like the many Michael Easton characters.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12006/01/2021

Who really thought that having two of the black female characters, that you just had spend an episode talking about how hard it to be black, especially black females, be held hostage/terrorized by an old white man, was a smart move?

R115 I do suspect that Cameron Mathison's character will be the new owner of The Invader. They probably won't but he should be his AMC character, because he would be heavily connected to Anna. Ryan was a relative of Duke Lavery, his first wife was accidently killed in place of Anna, and Anna's nephew Aiden was his love rival on several occasions. He was also a morally gray character, who as Peter said would want such a property to appear as a standup citizen. He wasn't a rapist, so his character shouldn't be covered under the recent ABC directive.

I feel like the the first plan from the writers was to bring RH back as Todd, before ABC made their recent rapist decision. I mean why else would ABC need to make such a decision in the first place about characters that are no longer on canvas? I doubt it was only because of Franco, since it has been established he never ACTUALLY raped anyone. He caused Michael's rape and made Sam think that he raped her, but never actually did the deed.

So the writers quickly made Llanview into Nixon Falls. I even suspect that the Tan-O was originally going to be Roadies. Then they wrote Dr. Austin for RH, because they had committed to killing Franco. If they do as some suspects and makes him another Alan spawn or Jimmy Lee Holt's offspring, they are still going back into history and making him a tent pole character.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12106/01/2021

I feel like I've seen Maxie give that same goodbye speech to a sister, a husband, and a couple of babies. Storms must have a lifetime Disney contract- she is not needed on this show.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12206/02/2021

So...that was Peter at the bottom of the stars that Elizabeth found? So many characters have that neatly trimmed five o'clock shadow I couldn't make the person.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12306/02/2021

Yes, its Peter at the bottom of the stairs. I, too, had to look closely to make sure it was him.

Frankie still has a hard on for Roger.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12506/02/2021

How did Maxie know about the abandoned well? How close to P.C. is the town of Pautuk? Why would the ambulance take Maxie and old Franco to G.H. instead of a hospital closer? Why didn’t Trina pick up the gun and REALLY REALLY REALLY kill Cyrus when he passed out?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12606/02/2021

Did Jeff Kober get another job or has he become too expensive for GH?

They seem to be ushering him out quickly all of a sudden after setting up what seemed to be long term story lines for him, Laura, Martin, Nik, Sasha...

Or did Mo get jealous and demand JK be given the heave ho?

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12706/02/2021

Seems like JK suddenly got another job and they had to write him off quicker than expected.

Doubt they wanted this Cyrus story at the same time their carefully planned Peter exit story was also wrapping up. Plus, they needed to use the show's B-team to send him off when they probably wanted this as a Sonny/Carly/Jason story

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12806/02/2021

So, if JK is being written off for a job, does that mean that Cyrus trading Portia and Trina for Laura as a hostage will usher Genie off again?

It was nice to see John McBain on the roof of GH today. Valentini needs to right some wrongs, pronto.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 12906/02/2021

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 13206/02/2021

Maxie's take down of Peter today was actually pretty good. The best performance she has given in years. I'm guessing this will be her Emmy reel for next year.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 13306/02/2021

I applaud GH for making the full use of their studio, but whenever they go out it is so clear they are in CA and not NY. Y&R is the same. The only soap that it doesn't screw up is B&B because they are actually set in LA.

Genie has a break coming up.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 13506/02/2021

r133 Agreed. She was pretty good today.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 13606/02/2021

So this is how I think Peter is killed: He sees Austin in the stairwell, exclaims "Franco? I thought I killed you?" and is so shocked that he trips and falls down the stairs.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 13706/02/2021

But no one's mentioned the resemblance R137. Even Maxie who slept with him.

I've always liked Jeff Korber. I hope he's not leaving but looks like it.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 13906/03/2021

If Peter is dead, then that makes Brook Lynn passing the baby off as her own pointless. So sadly, I'm skeptical about Peter really being gone.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 14006/03/2021

Finn and Liz's decision is definitely going to come back to haunt. The helicopter flying above might report the presence of someone, and/or when Peter comes to, he'll hold it over their heads in exchange for something.

But they balked. The whole "we have a delay" thing seemed a tad flimsy since they were already overhead and there were no inclement weather conditions. Perhaps they sensed the deal stunk and didn't think it was worth aiding and abetting over.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 14606/03/2021

Finn and Elizabeth disposed of the body. Therefore, Peter will go missing. Only Finn and Liz will know he is actually dead. Maxie, and everyone else, will think Peter is still alive somewhere, so she will stick to her story about "Chloe" stealing the baby, for fear Peter will come back and kidnap them. Brook Lynn has to keep up the pretense and convince Valentin the baby is his. All will get attached. The only other person who might know or figure out is Britt. Unless the writers come up with something even dumber than what I'm speculating.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 16906/05/2021

Last fall, there was some point in Willow's storyline where Harmony's presence would have seemed natural.

One of the soap sites tracked the actress down and questioned her about it. She reported that GH had invited her to come back for few episodes. She was in Toronto filming something and fly to LA to film a few days would have meant 2 weeks of quarantine in LA and then 2 weeks of quarantine when she got back to Canada. She said it wasn't worth it.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 17006/05/2021

My how Coby has downgraded. Dynasty has something like 240,000 viewers. GH has over 2 million. Desperate actor.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 17106/06/2021

Coby should have been cast as NuNik. TPTB wasted a perfect opportunity to make Nik complex and interesting.

Current Nik actor doesn't have the demeanor for the role and I don't see the chemistry between him and Ava everyone raves about.

They could keep the character viable by having her participate in a clinical trial for gene therapy or stem cell therapy, this is really happening for Huntington's. In a super convenient coincidence, Finn apparently knows how to cook such concoctions right in the tiny GH lab! Alternately, some have speculated that the doctor in Canada may have been doing Cyrus' bidding and jiggered the results just to fuck with her.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 195Last Thursday at 9:29 PM

Re: Britt. If GH had good writers, (yeah, right!), her storyline would be how she and Jason try to stop her descent into madness caused by the disease, especially after she's done such a good job rehabilitating herself.

Even her mother, Lisa, is apparently rehabilitated.

I can't decide which is the more lame blackmail threat: Cyrus telling the feds about Dev, or Jax telling Chase about Millow. Are these writers even trying?

Any guesses who they'll pair Todd Manning 3.0 with? It can't be worse than Mike and Nina, or Finn and Liz. Brando and Sasha are pretty cute, though.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 206Last Friday at 11:38 AM

Well, if that's true for the first time ever I feel sorry for Howarth. He needs a very strong actor to work with, someone who will not put up with this clownish bullshit and who can act well him or herself. His best work was with very strong actors, female and male. He needs someone who won't let him get away with lazy work. The actress who plays Maxie usually sucks on her own, put her together with someone who also sucks and there is nothing but fast forward material. I actually can't think of anyone in the right age group on GH that is well suited for him. They should bring in the actress who played Tea or Blair, my preference, being Tea. Or don't put him in a romantic situation and let him work with Monica or Dr. O. Oh, or what about Ava, she can make a stale slice of bread come off good and Nick stinks. In RL he is mid 50s, so he doesn't need to be with a young person.

Maybe he can have a relationship with a slightly older woman like Anna.

No matter what, not fucking Maxie. Even one of the teens, Trina, is a better actress than what's her name who plays Maxie. Only Lulu was worse, and of course the other two teen.

Fuck ABC for not letting them let him be Todd. At least then there was built in possibilities if any of the better OLTL people were willing to come to GH.

However first they need to insist Howarth go to a good acting teacher, not some GH coach but someone really good, maybe in NYC since he lives there. I once read that he claimed he never went to an acting class. He should not brag about that because it shows.

by Hasta la vista, babiesreply 207Last Friday at 11:43 AM

Good catch, R201. Since when is GH a stickler about proper ages, though? Charity Gatlin also had an eight year old son from a previous marriage that Jimmy Lee could have adopted, still making him technically a Q. The boy's name was Jonah, but they could work around that by making Austin be the middle name or a nickname.

As far as who could they pair him with? A tryst with Dr. Terry could be um, interesting. But it could ruffle a lot of feathers if it wasn't handled just so.

Who's the daddy storylines are a staple for soaps. They've been a mainstay of soaps since the early days just like love triangles and sibling rivalries. As part of that, switching paternity results has been used on virtually every soap.

Days certainly makes good use of switching paternity results. And GH has as well. Even Y&R has done it, although not to the extent GH and Days have. B&B just got through with a paternity results test switch storyline that ended with the lab technician who switched the results getting killed in a hit and run with the person who was suspected of being the father being the person who drove the car that killed him.

If you want to hate somebody, hate Irna Phillips for introducing the who's daddy storyline decades ago. But even if she hadn't done it, another HW would have, maybe Agnes Nixon or Bill Bell. And if none of them had introduced it, Gloria Monty definitely would have.

R227 - Her father has since died, I don't really know the answer to the second part. I imagine that might be the case, though.

Regarding Kristina Wagner, I think recurring players are only allowed a certain number of days each month. Why wasn't Bobbie at the Sean memorial? Why are there so many events you'd expect to see Lucy but don't? Mac is the police commissioner but there were numerous crimes he wasn't present for.

I think there were a couple times Scotty showed up as someone's lawyer because Diane had already used up her quota of days.

r229 By that reasoning about limited budget for recurring players, is that why TJ wasn't there in the scenes with his stepfather Curtis in the hospital after being shot? The money they might have used for TJ was used for Aunt Stella instead?

Entertainment Weekly has a discussion of some of the LGBTQ characters on soaps over the decades.

While this story focuses largely on ABC gay characters, it ignores several ABC gay characters too:

Lucas, Felix and Brad (GH)

Oliver Fish and Kyle Lewis (OLTL)

Michael Delaney and Kevin Sheffield (AMC)

Yet they shove Carly down our throats almost every damn day r229. TPTB at GH suck rope.

GH’s gay characters are off screen because the old biddies in the bible belt threaten to stop watching and ABC buckles to them.
