General Hospital Spoilers!



Here's the Scoop! 01.08.09

ABC's official word on the stunt hitting GH:

NO ONE IS SAFE... THE CLOCK IS TICKING... A DISASTROUS CRISIS HITS ABC'S "GENERAL HOSPITAL"

Viewers Will Need to Watch Each Episode as Clues Are Revealed After Time Is Turned Back; Storyline Will Coincide with the Return of Emmy® Winner Natalia Livingston to Port Charles

On the Thursday, January 15 episode of ABC's award-winning "General Hospital," Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) will rush into the operating room yelling to colleagues Dr. Monica Quartermaine, Dr. Matt Hunter, Nurse Elizabeth Webber and Nurse Epiphany Johnson, among others, to stop a pending surgery with a mysterious patient. Without giving away much else, the clock will be turned back nine hours and each subsequent episode for the next nine days will begin with scenes that will reveal more clues to what is about to happen in the hospital. On Wednesday, January 28, the reason for Dr. Drake's ultimatum to his staff will be revealed and, from this point through February, medical staff, patients and visitors will be affected as a major disaster will strike the corridors of the hospital and make its way throughout Port Charles. In addition, this medical crisis storyline will coincide with the anticipated return of Emmy® winner Natalia Livingston as Rebecca, an entirely new role, on January 15. Both announcements were made by Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney-ABC Television Group.

"We are very excited to start off the New Year with an exciting and captivating storyline that will engage the audience with all of our main characters," says executive producer Jill Farren Phelps. "In addition, I am thrilled Natalia has returned home to our show to add a new dimension with an entirely new character that will certainly turn heads with the town's residents."

Back to our regularly scheduled programming... So Elizabeth is in the operating room when Patrick rushes in. Will she fall ill? One RUMOR has her unconscious as the biotoxin hits Nurse Webber. Another re-do in the reverse? Remember when Lucky was hurt and unconscious with Elizabeth willing him to wake up? It set up a reunion for the one-time loves. Is this how Liz and Lucky are brought back together? How will Elizabeth's role in this storyline affect the character and the men in her life?

I asked yesterday and no one took a stab at it, so I'll ask again. Why does it seem that Patrick is in charge when Monica is the Chief of Staff? Monica is in that same operating room as Elizabeth. The biotoxin is released in that operating room. A little confusion... When the biotoxin is released, all those exposed must be quarantined. Matt, Elizabeth, Epiphany and Monica are all quarantined. How do these character pop up in scenes if they are stuck in quarantine? Remember, we're going to have a flash forward and then flash backs to tell the story.

What about Monica? Fans are fearful of yet another Quartermaine being trashed by TPTB. With Monica exposed to the toxin, will we only have two Q's left on our screens? What about Rebecca? Surely having her dead daughter's dead ringer at GH is going to have an affect on Monica.



Matt and Maxie... Are they each other's date to the gala? That's a RUMOR out there. There's also that "trapped in the elevator" RUMOR where Maxie is not happy with Matt and his decision to perform a risky procedure on Lulu.

Patrick... He's got a lot going on with a new marriage, his baby girl and a wife suffering from Post Partum Depression. RUMORS have more troubles for the newlyweds as he MAY bench Dr. Scorpio during the crisis. The LATEST? Robin and Patrick are separated during the crisis. Not a marital separation, the couple is physically separated while the crisis is going on. Scrubs SHOULD not be apart the entire time. Remember, Patrick benches Robin. It APPEARS that both are set to attend the gala. Patrick is paged and must attend to doctor stuff while Robin heads to the benefit. So while they are separated, at some point they are back onscreen together.

Where's Emma? In the hospital daycare. Are any of the other children in the daycare? Is the "men in her life" drop for Elizabeth playing into this? Are Jake and Cameron in the daycare as well?

We told you that Leyla is most likely going to be a casualty of the crisis. Who else dies? Not sure but according to RUMORS, four people are kicking the bucket.

Sam wants to work the Z's next. That ZaCrazy is a smart psychopath. He wants to know what Sam McCall is up to.

Are TPTB trying to ruin Clic in favor of Sonny and Claudia? What has been a hot and organic pairing is taking a turn with Claudia seducing Ric to get information. Will she confront dear old dad with what she learns?

Did Luke (our Luke) get his wish? He wants Mark Pinter (Agent Rayner) to stick around and the LATEST is that he will be with us for a few months.

More Megan Ward RUMORS making the rounds. Again, these RUMORS have the actress leaving. NOW, we heard that while at some point there MAY have been some truth to those RUMBLINGS, changes have been made and Kate will have a story coming up. Is it possible things have once again changed? Anything is possible.

RANDOM and CRAZY RUMORS... Johnny and Matt get into it. Dr. Hunter is exposed to the biotoxin but he doesn't become ill. Lulu knows Johnny and Claudia have a secret. Speaking of secrets, with all those Port Chuck residents in one room, secrets are surely spilling.

Guza says... Morning of the crisis is in "real time"... the aftermath is "increasingly suspenseful"..."Patrick is the center of the crisis"...

Regan, here is my stab at it....I think the operating room scene is the last scene of the crisis and we will gradually spend weeks working back up to that scene. Once we hit it again, we will be back to real time and that is when the quarantines should hit. Just my thoughts, who the hell knows anymore?

Lucky and Liz - not again! If they want to bust up the quad bust them four different directions instead of musical partners - lather, rinse, repeat. Sick

Hi Regan,
On this website (http://en.wikipedia.org)they are reporting that Lisa Lo Cicero and Megan Ward are leaving. Do you know anything about it?

regan, sorry i missed yesterday, but thanks for the spoilers.

wow, gh thinks well of itself doesn't it?

i'm with you on the monica thing, but what should we expect? this show changes history and stories like the wind, the only problem is it's the same writers! at least other shows can say the writing teams changed and along with them the stories.

and answer me this? when did nl become this great actress and marvel to the soap world? she had a few interesting stories, this does not make her the best thing since sliced bread. actually i think the best thing she ever did in character was to die and give everyone else good story. i don't not like her, but from what regan wrote the show is treating her like a goddess. that is unnecessary. i for one do not "highly anticipate" her return.

hey, i don't really care what the story is, the fact that patrick and robin's names appear more in these spoilers than any mob related character makes me want to shout with joy from a mountaintop!!!!

megan - nooooooo!! don't leave me. but if you must go -take olivia with you and any mention of dante, hell, take sonny. but i would much rather prefer you stay.

Wait, Scraps wants to work with the Z's? Why is her mother dating him now? So Sam will have sex with papa Z now huh? Guess her 'hot tub o skank' is coming out of cobwebs again. Could they make this girl look any trashier? GH is so cancelled. If this is the best they can come up with, the show just needs to go. The Quad needs to go BUST big time. Jasam tanked sweeps, LL2 are beyond done.

I tried that link and it didn't take me to anything GH related.... caution on wiki entries, I've never made one myself and someone please correct me if I am wrong, but anyone can put something on wiki.

As far as Megan and Lisa are concerned.... Lisa is not on contract so she could be let go or leave at will. Megan is on contract and while there has been plenty of RUMORS that she is gone, I believe her current deal is through the spring. HOWEVER, they can let her go and pay out her deal. From what we heard, MW was almost out the door and a change in story has her sticking around. NOW, as I said, things COULD have changed again and I do find it interesting that Olivia seems to be the third wheel in CarJax's story and Kate is MIA. BUT, Kate has some things coming up. She is SUPPOSED to be the one spilling the Dante secret and Kate will walk in on Claudia watching another Jerry Jacks DVD. She'll not catch the whole show but Kate will want to know what Claudia is hiding.

The crisis sounds good on paper but the way they execute it is a different story

If Liz is in the hospital Jason better go visit his baby mama besides he is the only that can will her to live. Plucky better step aside because she just might go into the light.

I hope Zacrazy runs over Spam with his wheelchair

Sam thinks she can infiltrate the Z organization....

Natty... those are ABC's words, not mine. Glad I didn't post the rest of the release though as GH once again reminded us of their Daytime Emmy for best show. I have always liked Natalia, she was never my favorite, but I liked her and I am glad she is returning BUT I want her to be Emily Quartermaine. I HATE these returns as other characters. I HATE this one especially because GH needs more Q's and all this return is to me is a reminder of how badly TPTB have torn the Q family to shreds.

If Natalia is a long awaited return and they're anxious to have her back on screen, why did they even bother killing Emily off in the first place. You can't tell me that Nikolas' romance with his tumour was more exciting than an actual romance with the living girl, eh?

Let's just hope they don't off another Q.

Hey!!!! The Scrubs s/l is a TOTAL ripoff from GH:NS!! I don't know how many of you watched, but there was total Scrubs drama b/c pregnant Robin was in over her head, and acting Chief Patrick had to bench his then-girlfriend. Sigh.

Sweet Jeebus.

Why do TIIC insist on having Sam be this one-woman whateverthehelltheywannacallit? I hate what they are having her do in order to facilitate JaSam 2.0. This is no doubt another opportunity for her to look like a pathetic damsel-in-distress. I HATE FRONS! The only thing I can look forward to is maybe a run-in with Claudia... whee!

Why can't Jason die this time? I can name eleventy-billion reasons why he should. Leave Monica alone!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JASON CAN'T DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS - I was just thinking that if Monica and Elizabeth are both in the OR , maybe it will the best time to tell Monica that she has grandson!!!
she did tell Lura so why can't she tell it to Monica the real grandmother , if there is a fear of death , it will be the best!!!!!!!!

Ugh, but he is such a drag... and not the fun "queen" kind. I used to be a HUGE Jason fan, but he has become so one-dimensional. He's only entertaining as "Jason the hitman/kingpin"; alone and emotionally-detached.

He can take Sonny to the grave with him! They can go in each other's arms... a lovers' last embrace. Awwww.

Why do I have this sinking feeling that somehow one of the deaths will be Jake....thus leaving a smooth and clear path for JaSam 2.0. And we all know this show has never had a problem hurting a child, and God knows Liz is not one of Frons' favorite characters.

The only worse thing would be the mysterious pregnancy being Sam, thus making her numero uno in Jason's life.

Thanks for all the Updates Regan...

I think it makes sense that if Monica goes down, Patrick would take over, seeing that he used to hold the CoS position. With Elizabeth and Monica both exposed to the biotoxin, I would hope that some bonding (revealing Jake's paternity)ensues. Perhaps the quarantine will also spark a bond between Elizabeth and Matt (much like she did with Zander in the crypt), but I hope not. Liason is the only option for Elizabeth, period. LL2 is so done, too much cheating and distrust went on in that relationship.

Ravennite613, your comment made me laugh because I could totally see Guza & Co. doing something so out of left field. How sad.

Sam going after the Z's.....perhaps the reunion rumors were wrong. Maybe it isn't a Rexis (yep that one's been floating around) and JaSam reunion, maybe it's a RAM reunion. Where are their fans at? :jawdrop:

OK so there are these secrets lurking all over PC... which ones are coming out during the crisis? We know the Dante drop is coming courtesy of Kate. Liason fans want Elizabeth to tell Monica about Jake which MAY be happening if the LATEST SCOOP is correct. Claudia's role in Michael's shooting is RUMORED to be revealed but what COULD be saving the Mob Moll? How about Anthony and Ric's dirty little secret? The one where Anthony shot Kate and Ric knew about it... that MAY be coming out. Remember though, Ric is RUMORED to be among the injured/infected.

What about Rebecca? How is she a bad girl like all the mags are reporting? She MAY be revealed to be working for the bad guys. The originality is killing me... isn't this the same story they had us believing when Matt first hit town?

Sounds as if TPTB are trying to re-create the Metro Court fiasco to garner some much-needed ratings!

My truest hope is that this show will FINALLY return SOME of the storylines back to the hospital. It is past time for the mob to fade to black. After all isn't the name of this show "General Hospital"!!? It will be interesting to see who bites the bullet in order to accommodate Natalia's return; which I'm sure TPTB are hoping will be a ratings' coup for them. I personally fail to see it. While I like the actress very much, I hope she returns to a WELL WRITTEN and INTRIGUING storyline--one that will truly keep us intrested in her new character. Please apply the same technique to the Johnny/Lulu pairing.

The SADDEST part--NO LIASON! The adventures of Jasam does not turn me on one bit. Jason needs to be a part of his son's life that definitely includes the mother...period.

Unlike Sam who made attempts, Lizard has made ZERO effort to encourage Jason to find a place for the Qs in his life and specifically stopped Jason from telling Monica. So now that maybe monica is dying Buzzard will have the heart to tell her about Jake - hey you have a grandson that I never let you hold, just thought you should know. UGGGHH.

I hope there is just three doses of something to cure the bio-toxin related illness. She give a dose to Epiphany, one to Matt and just as she is about to sacrifice herself and give the last dose to Buzzard, Monica finds out what a deceptive witch she has been working beside and keeps the last dose for herself, thus leaving Buzz to die a quick but extremely painful death.

JASON--DIE?--ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! That would leave WHO to run the mob with integrity (believe it or not!)? It certainly isn't Sonny who is driven by his emotions. Nor does it leave anyTHING Zaccara since ALL of them are off their rockers!

Yes, again, it's past time that Monica knew about Jason. Just hope she doesn't go the "Edward" route and try to take control/possession of her "family"!

Jason is a grown, if brain dead, borg, it wasn't Liz's place to tell him how to feel about his family. Of course Spam wanted him to re-Q himself. More money for her to sit on the couch and complain about her mother, her dead brother, her dead womb and her lack of a post-middle school education for three more snoretastic years, save for Sweeps of course, when she grows a brain and battles swarthy foreign mobsters in tight, revealing attire as Brian Frons sits in his office drooling while watching the feeds.
