General Hospital Spoilers!





Here’s the Scoop! 04.20.09

Who thinks there’s some scrambling going on at GH? The ratings suck, the storylines aren’t much better and fans are probably the most unhappy they’ve been in a very long time. Is any of this registering with TPTB? Some are saying it is and re-writes are in the works but my question is: Will the re-writes be in the right direction? GH, Guza, Frons, Jill… do they know what the right direction is? Past experiences tell me that they got off track a long time ago.

What’s going on with NotEmily? Some say she was never supposed to be the RealEmily and that this Rebecca character was meant to stick. Stick to what? Will this be a re-write? There’s some Rebecca – Lucky stuff RUMORED to be coming with those Nikolas-Elizabeth RUMORS mixed in. HERE’S WHAT YOU DO… Make the decision to have NotEmily be the RealEmily. Helena’s in town, use her to your advantage. Have Hells play a role in Emily’s death, explain away Diego admitting to killing her and spin the story in the brainwash direction. I know I never endorse the recycling of old storylines, but in this case, it’s your only option. Do I want a quad with the four musketeers? Not really but I’d be all for a triangle with Lucky-Emily-Nikolas.



LL2 Re-do RUMORS getting resurgence. It SEEMS a personal appearance held by Greg Vaughan this weekend left a few fans with the feeling that LL2 MAY once again be reunited. Haven’t we been down this road already? A few times in fact? I loved LL2 in their heyday, even liked them when they reunited after Elizabeth had Cameron. Now is not the time to try them again. HERE’S WHAT YOU DO…If Lucky-NotEmily can’t happen (for whatever reason) try Lucky with Kelly Lee or recast the role of Sarah. What else did GV dish? Apparently he wants us to lay off Ethan. Sorry Greg, not happening. He also gave some fans the impression that the Nikolas-Elizabeth stuff goes a little too far when he SPOILED that two of the foursome are doing the deed. He also mentioned a letter from Tony Geary apologizing about the recent Luke-Lucky scenes. Also, he auditioned for Melrose Place.



The young adult set… Maxie, Spinelli, Johnny, Lulu, Ethan Matt and Winifred. Maxie is determined to get her Jackal back but is the Jackal going to be quick to forgive and forget? My favorite scenes last week were the Spixie “break-up.” Maxie has a plan which ultimately blows up in her face. Will it push Spinelli further away? Johnny is still RUMORED to bed an older lady and it looks like they’re going to give Ethan and Lulu a try. How does the “is Luke your father?” storyline fit in? Obviously there will be some concerns about Lulu getting involved with a boy who may or may not be her half-brother. Tracy will be the one who is most concerned. Helena tells Luke she thinks Ethan is a chip off the old block and when Holly arrives we SHOULD find out who really is Ethan’s father. RUMORS had Tony Geary pushing for Ethan to be a Spencer… did he get his wish? Some are reporting no. I say Thank God! What about Winnie? I love Senta Moses but I agree with most, one Spinelli is enough. HERE’S WHAT YOU DO… Make Ethan a Scorpio (if he must stay) and give him some stuff with Robin. Maybe Kimberly McCullough can help a brother out because Tony G. isn’t doing this kid any favors. Pair him with Lulu and let Johnny-Maxie-Spinelli have a triangle. If they go JoMax, bring on a Georgie type character for Spin, a young nurse at GH perhaps. If they go with Spixie, bring Nadine back and give us the Nohnny pairing.

What about Matt? A lot of fans want M&M to get some sort of a chance. We SHOULD see some Matt and Maxie stuff coming up and RUMORS have Matt laying down some roots. Uncle Matt helps out with Emma and I’m seeing reports of some funny moments. There are way too many young men in town, they really need to cast a young nurse or bring back Claire Coffee as Nadine.

Scrubs Stuff… They’ve seem to monopolize the SPOILERS lately but it APPEARS that Robin’s trip to treatment has them sidelined a bit. Patrick becomes a single father and comedy is said to be coming our way when it’s soon realized that taking care of a baby is overwhelming. I’m confused? Hasn’t Patrick been complaining about taking care of Emma since Robin won’t? Why is this all of the sudden such a revelation?



The explosion… SHOULD be this week. Jason is hurt with Carly RUMORED to be collapsing at the news. How hurt is he? It APPEARS that he’s not that badly injured as RUMORS have him leaving GH against medical advice. Remember, there are a few RUMORS associated with the explosion. JaSam moment, Claudia coming to Jason’s aid, Elizabeth hitting up Jake’s and the RUMOR that someone else MAY get caught in the explosion. Now, there is also a RUMOR that someone gets caught in the cross-fire. That COULD be the explosion meant to end Jerry’s life or in typical GH fashion, it MAY be another shoot out.

Jerry survives the explosion… he’s hurt but makes it out alive. What’s he doing back in PC? He wants to set things right and make sure those responsible pay. This is Jerry Jacks so the game playing is par for the course.

CRAZY and RANDOM RUMORS… Jax finds the pregnancy test. Alexis gets all the deets about her bad boy lover’s involvement. Claudia overhears Alexis and Jerry talking. Jason wants Jax to give up Jerry’s location. Dr. Lee almost tells Jax the truth. He finds out soon enough. Helena and Jerry drop out of sight and Port Chuck. Johnny’s worried that even a bun in the oven isn’t going to help Claudia. Jax and sonny come to blows. Are Rebecca and Alexis as well? Remember, Alexis sets out to show that Rebecca got a new face. Helena doesn’t want the painting; she wants what’s behind the art. Is someone dying? Did Guza sign on for six more months? Is Luke headed out of town in search of Robert?

RUMBLES of a Murder Mystery… Is this what GH needs? A classic tried and sometimes true good old fashion murder mystery? These RUMBLES have it involving the Scorpios and Drakes.



Will Kelly Monaco not be in the extended run of PeepShow? The TALK was that ABC would grant her the OK should she get picked up for the extension on the Vegas show. Recent CHATTER has her returnign to GH after her intial run and Lindsay Lohan as a POSSIBLE replacement.

Every one of these storylines(and possible storylines)suck so bad I don't know where to begin.You can pair Matt with whoever you want...I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE CHARACTER!!!I don't care who Nubecca,or Lucky end up with because these actors have been written SO many different ways I no longer find them believable or relevant.They can skirt the Liason issue all they want,but i'm still not even gonna entertain the notion of returning to this horrible show until they are reunited. I mean they don't don't really think ANOTHER car bomb was innovative writing,did they?Frons and Guza have insulted my intelligence for the last time....ALL of these storylines suck hard with a capital SUCK!!!!jmo.

Thank You Regan
I Think That the JaSam moment will be that Sam tell Spin that she cares for Jason in GH and Liz will listen and than go to Jake's.............
I am Sorry all LIASON fans and I am with you but I think that they decided that JaSam is on..........
in all the promos they show Jason and Sam not Liz so it is a done deal.
also lets not forget their scenes in the past months there is a feeling that they are bonding again , Jason confides with her about Michael and the Job , they are smiling at each other................
YEAA JASAM IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know what to feel about it I really didn't hate JaSam when they were together And I really want Jason to be with Jake and not Sucky, So I don't know what to say.
I am just happy that there is something for Jason's personal life and not him worrying about other people..........

Maxie goes to her tried and true method of trying to sleep with Spin to lure him back. It doesn't work. She'll also try her hand at making Spin jealous while she flirts with Matt. Which backfires as Spin doesn't get jealous, just sad over the fact that Maxie is interested in other guys.

Regan, from reading your spoilers/rumors it doesn't look like it, but any chance Liason might get a re-write? I know I'm a broken record, but I heard SB wasn't too thrilled with his character and wanted more of a s/l of him with Jake. Any truth to that? Also, did we hear whether he is staying or going yet?

I think Steve made his feelings known when they broke Liason up. It does not appear that Liason is one of the rewrites. Could that change? Yes. Likely? No. I have heard some RUMBLES that Frons's dictation of JaSam re-do and Liason break-up was not received well by those over Frons. Why? Well he gave the OK for Kelly Monaco to do the Vegas show which only makes her available to GH all day Weds and Thurs mornings. We've seen the decrease in airtime for Sam McCall due to the show. SUPPOSEDLY, those above Frons couldn't wrap their heads around breaking up a popular pairing to facilitate a reunion that wasn't really possible, at least not at this time.

Thanks Regan.

I want Spixie. They are magical. I think any triangle is too much at this point, they need to start resolving the angst that has already been created. I also want to see Maxie start to redeem herself. I don't want to see her descend further into enabled self-destruction. I like Matt although I find him annoying with Maxie. I agree with you, I would like him with Nadine and hope that they bring her back for him (if CC doesn't get the pilot).They had a cute dynamic.

Regan - Dogs don't care what happens to the tree after they pee on them. They only care to mark the tree.

Triangles are one of those tried and true soap elements. Now, obviously a show with all triangles wouldn't really work but in some storylines a triangle could help. I'm all for a happy, healthy relationship but for some reason the writers at GH don't seem to think that's a realty.

Silly me Sue... I always forget that one and the one where soap writers never think a storyline all the way through like a fan does. When will I ever learn?

I pretty much resolved to the fact of no Liason but I cannot accept that Jason would never be a part of Jake's life.

That is my biggest hang-up with this Fronz/Guza edict.

Fine they want to re-do JaSam go ahead it will have the same ending as last time. The same with LL2000

God I just want Fruza to accept one word in the english language - ORIGINALITY of which we all know they have none

Someone should give Fruza a clue! Since they are not getting fired, why don't they quit and show us they really care about GH?

Also, please consider signing this petition:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/save-gh-bring-back-genie-francis

On the Soap Opera Digest site, Greg Vaughn keep winning the poll about who is better looking. How can this idiots take him off contract and give Teethan one?

Question: Clawdia keep denying her culpability with such vehemence to Sonny and Jason. So, how are they gonna justify not killing her when the truth comes out?

Either the re-writes have yet to kick in or they are just as bad as the original s/l's. Could this show suck MORE?

IMO, there were *Two* popular pairings that were broken up (LuSam and Liason) supposedly for this reunion. But I guess TPTB above Frons are only concerned with Liason? Interesting...

LuSam was considered a fluke hit... TPTB never intended for them to go farther than the revenge phase of their relationship. But they did and they were popular so yes, two popular pairing were broken up to facilitate a reunion that only half of the pairing is available.

Thanks Regan. Its good to have that feedback. I remember some great triangles on GH. If they are played well and capture the essence of the characters then they can be good. My concern is that GH currently seems to like to play to perpetual angst with no resolution.

With Spixie, I still want to see a triangle avoided. Short term conflicted feelings I can see, a triangle, no. It is still my feeling that they need to work towards resolving the angst that has been created. This isn't to say that I want no angst in a story. Angst is required for a story to progress. I just that they need to resolve this angst first and then write for them (including angst) as a couple. IMO

You make a great comment about happy couples. GH needs to have happy couples and/or strong couples. Couples can be strong and happy and still have angst. Back when I was a kid, I remember Frisco and Felicia having tons of angst. It challenged them, it made them unhappy with each other, but didn't really rock their dedication to each other. I would love for GH to write angst for couples as couples, instead of repeatedly ripping couples apart. For me, this would increase a viewers investment in the show. They would see the character and couple they love being invested in and creatively written for, instead of being randomly ripped apart, written out of character, or being subjected to ongoing misery for plot points. Fans need rewards for their dedication to the show and to the characters and couples they love.

Please forgive my rant. I do appreciate your feedback. You make excellent points.

Thanks for the spoilers Regan. I hope tptb realizing the mistakes they made will try to fix what they broke but I will not hold my breath as long as Guza and Frons are still around.

I get what your saying Daisy, you are right Lusam were also broken up but I do not believe it had the impact on fans that Liason' breakup did. Lusam had fans and had chemistry but fans of Lusam were not as emotionally invested in that couple as the Liason fans were in their couple. When the couples broke up the fan backlash was bad for both couples but I dont beleive it was as loud and large as the Liason fans. Lusam was after all still a pretty new development and had not yet gained a big enough following. I think that the big breakups that hurt the show the most were Liason then Skate then Lusam.

Scrubs need to stay together against all odds like Frisco and Felicia.

Matt does need a romantic interest, but not boring hick Nadine. Bring back Brook Lyn. The Qs need an injection of youth.

I don't care about Liz as along as she stays away from Patrick. She, Rebemily, Nikolas and Lucky can have an orgy for all I care.

Teethan better not be a Scorpio. I don't want Robin or Robert stuck with him. I am also sure that Robert would not like having Luke as his son-in-law.

I agree with you FnG Suck
it does seem that the all LIASON thing hurt the show
I still don't get it way did they do that?????
I heard a rumor that Guza didn't want Jason to go to the all family man which is stupid LIASON family would have been such an interesting S/I for Jason's character see him face the problem, of being a mobster and have family facing dilemmas it would have bring GH such a fresh air................

LovesDog, I'm sure Robert would be thrilled to have a son with his beloved Holly. They talked about it often enough. Besides, maybe Robin's brother can snap her out of this PPD!
