General Hospital Spoilers!





Here’s the Scoop! 05.06.09

Nursing a Cinco de Mayo hangover? Be warned that this may make you nauseous. According to a report in this week’s TVGuide, Holly comes to town to tell Luke he is the father. Say it isn’t so! There is much more story potential if Robert Scorpio is the pops. Interesting tid bit… Nathan Parsons (Ethan) read for the role of Dante but didn’t fit the part because he is Australian despite most fans thinking his accent is a fake. TPTB - or TIIC as I like to call them - were so taken with Parsons, they created the role of Ethan for him. They should have stopped at him not being right for the role of Dante. CAUTION: Another interview with Emma Samms had her playing coy about Ethan’s paternity.

Speaking of yet another Corinthos child… lord there are way too many of them. Dante is still being cast according to sources. The original plan was to have Dante already in town when Michael woke up but the casting wasn’t going as planned. Do we really need more of Sonny’s offspring? Jason can’t be around the one child he has but Sonny has them literally coming out of the woodwork.

Kristina, Morgan and Michael all got new faces. What about Molly? They’re still casting the role of the SORAS’d Lansing-Davis offspring. With an older Kristina what’s coming up? We’ve already dished on the teenage rebel who isn’t too fond of her father. She’ll tie into Michael’s story as he gets better and some RUMORS have suggested that Helena MAY be involved. Kristina will definitely give her mother some grey hairs. Sisterly advice? SHOULD be happening. Sam has been RUMORED to step in a try to help a sister out. Kristina MAY be finding a confidante in her former step father.

Does anyone seriously believe that Elizabeth and Lucky won’t be backburnered? I don’t. Once their reunion serves its purpose, don’t expect to see them much. Is that why Greg Vaughan has been auditioning so much? Remember he revealed he auditioned for a role on the Melrose Place update.



Now I love my Liason but I am not so jaded to believe that the pair alone can give the ratings a saving boost. Will Liason fans that deserted the show come back? Most likely but I would never assume that one pairing could save the ratings. Help? Sure. Save? No way! Brian Frons however is putting all of his eggs in JaSam’s basket. When and IF he fails, who’s to blame then? Here’s a tip to Mr. Frons… TELL BETTER STORIES. The lack of unoriginal writing and lazy storytelling is what is killing your shows. That and your own personal need to meddle. If you wanted to be a soap writer, that’s the job you should have applied for.

Scrubs fans want a little love in the afternoon for their couple when Robin returns. Will they get it? Some say no, others say yes.

Is Kate Howard done in Port Chuck? RUMORS say she is. Spinelli uncovers a secret of Kate’s. Great! I love secrets, can’t get enough of them, especially ones that never come out yet most of the world knows.

RANDOM and CRAZY… Why is it always Lulu? REPORTS say that the actors auditioning for Dante have done so opposite Julie Marie Berman. There was also a mention that new Michael ran some scenes with potential Dantes. It APPEARS it is Olivia who Johnny takes to bed. Is there a reason for this? RUMORS have Johnny being moved towards the older set of characters and away from the young adults. Luke asks Lulu to do some digging.

Ewise. You like what you like and I like what I like it just happens that I am a Liason fan and I was also a Sonny fan and an Epiphany fan and many others but the show sucks period. And bring JaSam back is not helping. Sam in her underwear does not impress me, neither does her dangling from buildings for the umpteenth time. As I said before her character needs to grow.

Also the woman that she watched was not safe no matter how you try to spin it. Sam had no intentions of telling anyone anything had Jason and Amelia not found Jake he would still be missing. She saved Jake from the Russians goody for her she owed it to JAKE not Jason or Liz. Debt paid move on. I also said independent Sam would be great but we already see her relying on Jason too much and they are just friends if it goes romantic she would never leave the PH again.

I FF through most of GH because the stories suck no matter how much of a fan I am I refuse to watch crap and IMO you don't have to rewrite history to move a couple on. Jason loved Liz and he loved Sam hell he even loved Courtney. It doesnt mean he will be in love with either of them forever.

I absolutely loved Liz and Jason today, so emotional.Crying for both Michael and Jake

Talking about Jake and his birthday and hoping Michael wakes up on Jake's birthday.

Liz trying to comfort him. Jason still blaming himself.

It is not selfish to fall in love. My tourtured couple

I Hated the Liason scenes , hate that everytime they meet they are saying Jake is better of without Jason in his life and than seeing the loser and Liz talking about Jake and her saying that Jake is better of with the loser instead of a real guy makes me want to yell..............................
And wasn't she stupid asking him does he know what day it is of course he will know he was the one who brought her to GH he is the one who saved Jake and he is the one who is Jake's real father not the loser........

So I hated the liason scenes..........
At least with JaSam I don't need to hear the all not safe stupid speech,,.................

All you Liarson fans saying that JaSam is not helping the ratings.... They aren't even back together yet!! Hell, Sam is only on about once a week right now cuz of KM's Vegas show. I can guarantee that things will change once they actually put them back together and give them some good story lines. I agree with anyone that says Sam should stay independent and not rely on Jason so much. That would actually be really great because it would show her strength and growth. They should have them start over like a whole new relationship with them going on dates and stuff, since they never had a regular courtship. She was living with him already by the time they got together!! I think she should keep her apartment and stay out of the PH, at least for a while!! I understand why the Sam haters would be pissed about the scenes with Sam in her underwear, but as a JaSam fan, I saw it as a reminder of how close they were and how comfortable they are together. You can watch the whole scene and see that there was nothing sexual about it, since any couple that were together 3 years would not trip out about seeing the other person in their underwear. They were just really at ease with each other and Jason opened up to her because she's the only person he can open up to, plain and simple. Just like Carly needs to talk things over with Jason, Jason has to talk things over with Sam.

Since Frons is obessed with Sam, why did he try to develop the Lucky/Sam relationship more. Those two had me hooked. THey had amazing chemistry and just looked beautiful together.

Those two were on tv all the time together when channels would do stories on soaps.

Yeah I was a Liason fan but LuSam is the couple that had my heart. Why Lucky told Sam that he will always catch her Oups that stole my heart.

I am a JaSam and a LuSam fan, but the reality is that tptb simply dont want to write for Lucky. Look at them bringing in ethan as a faux son for Luke. PLEASE. And by pairing Sam with Lucky, instead of moving Lucky to the forefront, they slashed Sam's airtime. As a Sam fan, I hated that.

As for JaSam, I dont understand saying how all of the eggs are in the JaSam basket and what will they do if it flops and then turn around and say its the writing. Of course its the writing. And with all the things going on or possibly going on, it seems to me there are some pretty big non-JaSam oriented storylines coming up. Add to that the fact that Sam hasnt even been on - a fact that mayjador correctly points out - I dont see how anyone can tag JaSam as being responsible for either the low ratings now or even future bad ratings if thats what happens (any more than I will say oh see, its all about JaSam if they go up)

And on a final note, with all this talk about how Jason needs to be with Lizard because Jake is story and growth for Jason, but really there is NO reason Jason cant claim Jake down the line and go for visitation with Sam by his side. In fact, it would probably be MORE powerful if that choice comes about while he and Lizard are apart. That custody battle might just be a tear jerker, esp. if there was a good (or altruistic) reason for Jason to make the move. Maybe a year or so down the line, Sam has a miracle baby and drawing from the history with Alexis and Kristina, the baby needs a transplant. Would Jason allow his miracle child to die in order to protect Jake. And once the cat is out of the proverbial bag, then it would in fact make sense for Jason to be in Jakes life. I could see Kristina and Michael encouraging him to fight and if he is already raising one child safely, then he would obviously think Jake could be safe too. Or maybe Lizard gets sick - nothing fatal or even necessarily permanent (although I would love fatal) - but something where she couldnt give Jake 100% and Jason deciding he cant trust Lucky with the custody. What ever happened to the spoiler about Lizard getting amnesia. Could you imagine JaSam claiming Jake and totally getting settled in only for Lizard to make her way back to PC. Maybe Zander returns from the dead, that ric set it up, and he kidnaps Lizard and cam. Lucky has to go rescue Lizard and is forced to leave Jake with JaSam. Again, TONS of possible ways to give Jason a relationship with his son, without doing the no-chemistry pairing of Jiz.

ladyofthelake is right on the money about Holly and Ethan. The perfect fit would have been the "coma baby" scenario so that it doesn't compromise the character of Holly anymore than they've already done with the 2006 debacle. I kept thinking... how can they possibly make this Luke's child... they will have to completely trash history to do it: 1) Will they pull a stunt like AMC and the unabortion and have the 1983 miscarriage turn out to be a fetus spirited away and given up for adoption?? sheesh ... or, 2) will they rewrite the 1983 DVX storyline where Holly, Celia & Luke were being held hostage by the DVX on the Expo grounds? To do this, they would have to say that in desperation, Luke & Holly slept together while in captivity (even though in reality Holly realized it was Robert she was truly in love with now). Then they would have to totally forget the fact that Holly was always seen onscreen after that storyline and was never pregnant or off the canvas!! Once again, a ludicrous option! Option #3: After Robert & Holly moved to Australia in 1985, will they now say that Holly crossed paths with Luke (while Luke was living life around the world with Laura) and just for kicks they decided to have a roll in the hay for good times' sake! Guza would then be trashing both relationships of Holly/Robert and Luke/Laura. (Remember what he did to poor Rick Webber in 2002 by making the guy a serial cheater who screwed any nurse he could find during his marriage to Lesley when we KNOW his only affair was with Monica and that was because they shared a history). Sure it's fine for them to tease the audience that it might be Luke's as long as the end result isn't that. But in doing so and for Luke to even think it's plausible, that means they still have to change history that Holly and Luke cheated on their spouses with each other. Otherwise, Luke would be saying, "Hey the kid isn't mine because the last time I slept with Holly is before I headed up to the mountains and got hit with the avalanche in Jan. 1983!" The only plausible options are: 1) the kid is Robert's (the "coma baby' and Holly's family spirited the kid away); or 2) the baby is Bill Eckert's which could be possible since Holly wasn't heard from again when she left town in 1993... they would just have to have Ethan SORAS'd like Lulu, Lucky & Nikolas all were.

Jason doesn't need to be with Sam or with Liz. He needs to be out of the mob and back with the Quartermaines for the future. Let him battle Tracy for control of the family businesses, or let him go into medicine as he had planned to way back when. Just get him away from Sonny and company.

I HATE the rewriting of history with the insertion of characters who were conceived and born off-stage. That is sloppy storytelling on the part of the writers and powers that be. Ethan is a prime example of this sort of bullhockey. Not to be outdone Sonny is also going to be presented with another progeny, young Master Dante from Bensonhurst. This was done also to introduce Nicholas who Laura had off-stage.

How much history will Ethan's parentage change? Holly lost the child she was carrying when Luke was thought lost in the avalanche. She stayed with Robert for a long time. If Ethan is her son she wouldn't have sent him to PC to Luke if Luke were the father. That is NOT Holly. She runs a tight con. Miss Holly Sutton is a grifter from a long line of grifters. I could believe that she sent Ethan to PC and to Luke just to test out the waters again. Then again, Ethan just may be running his own con independent of anyone else.

I am not happy to see the Lucky Liz reunion because they are boring together. There is nothing smokin' about them as a couple. Nick and NotEm don't sizzle either. St. Emily was bad enough but this Emily lookalike is gawdawful.

I miss Kate. She added class to the show much like Lila did. Olivia is not a vital character but she is better than Claudia. I won't be sorry to see the back of Rick Lansing either. If the show is to continue it has to cut down on the cast and use them to tell stories that have been thought out and researched before they are delivered.

Just wondering. How can they have a teen romance when all of the teens on the show are related to Sonny.LOL

Spencer-Nephew
Kristina- Daughter
Morgan- Son
Michael- Son
Molly- Niece

Sam never, ever needs to be around Jake, and if Jason allows this, Liz should shot him herself....just sayin

I'm hoping Kelly Monaco gets a primetime gig or something and leaves GH. I used to like the character of Sam. Now I'm just annoyed by her. Actually I think I just started really disliking the character when she slept with her mother's husband and the whole "hot tub in my bikini trying to seduce Lucky thing and calling over Jason to tell him my seduction plan" thing. I don't care how upset or drunk you are, you should know not to sleep with your mom's hubby or not to use sex for revenge. Then I started to like her again with Lucky and she was redeeming herself. Now she's back to being a Barbie. I hope she just leaves Port Charles. Fronz is too much of a pig to allow the character any growth. I hope JaSam blows up in his face... LuSam and Liason had so much potential. But ofcourse, Fronz couldn't allow his beloved Sam to be with Lucky, and his beloved Jason to be with Liz.

And I'd rather have Steve Burton leave the show too if all he's gonna be is Sonny's enforcer and solve everyone else's family problems. Not interested in seeing another story where the superhero mobster saves the day with his bikini bandit sidekick tagging along. Pathetic...

Actually, as a KeMo fan, I would love that for her. I could have seen her in the role that went to ex-Amelia on 24. I could have imagined her in the Kate role on Lost. SVU is losing a cop at the end of this season - she would make a great replacement for whoever bites the dust. How about bringing her in as a love interest for SImon Baker's character on the Mentalist and then spin her off to her own show - she has the charisma. Kutner is gone on House. Would another brunette on his team be out of the question?

So yeah, I could imagine her in a lot of different places, but in the meantime, I want to see her with JASON on GH.

SVU is losing a cop??? WWhhhyy?? Who? I like that whole cast Sad

I though NBC or some major network had KeMo on contract promising her a role in their next pilot. Anyways, I liked her on Dancing With The Stars. I just don't like her as SAM. I don't like the character of Sam. She's ruined, in my opinion anyway. And I hate her with Jason...

oh and Amelia rocked it on 24. I don't think KeMo would have done the same. I see her in a different type of role, one that has her laughing and being silly more. She has a really cute smile and laugh. I don't like her serious/frustrated faces as much. Again, just my opinion.

I would love to be pleasantly surprised and find out that Kelly Monaco could play a smart, fiesty, strong, and hardnosed cop on another show but GH is the only thing I have ever seen her on and I have never seen her do anything on GH that shows she has any range.

LostHope4GH I just read that SVU said the show will be back with or without the 2 leads. Then I read that Mariska (Olivia) is in the process of signing a new contract. She said Chris (Elliot) is also. I'm wondering if its Ice-T because he hasn't talked contract with the show.. If so... Lord knows I will not watch cause I started watching due to him!

I can't see her playing a hardnosed anything. Too much eyes rolling/closing and hands flailing when she tries to the serious/concerned/frustrated looks. She's better off in a sexy comedy type show. She's adorable when she's being cute and funny and smiley.

Thanks Jillian. Ice-T is sooo funny, I don't want him to go. And I doubt NBC would let Mariska or Chris go. But I like Munch too. I don't care if any of the lawyers leave.

Sam spent the majority of her relationship with Jason bawling her eyes out. Kelly Monaco constantly had tears running down her face. Let's see, Sam's baby died...she cried. Jason lost his memory and needed surgery...she cried. Jason broke up with her after she was shot...she cried. During that entire breakup...she cried. Poor KeMo probably had to put ice on those little buggers because they were so swollen, lol. It's obivous the girl can cry, but KeMo also plays bitch very well. Hello Sam/Liz fights? In additon, she is fabulous when she plays fun, flirty and sweet. Also, someone mentioned it above but, I think she would be excellent as a cop in primetime. We have seen her portray the kick butt type on GH several times. Maybe some people don't see her range, but I can see it clearly.

Personally, I would love to see her leave daytime and move on to other projects. I think she would be amazing. But, I think she is happy with daytime right now, so I'm just going to enjoy whatever it is she is doing on GH. I seriously can't wait until Kelly is finished in Vegas because having Sam on only once a week just isn't cutting it for me, lol. Although, I guess I should be happy because whenever she is on, most of her scenes are with Jason. Muahhhahahahaaa!!

KeMo does the crying and sad thing really well, I agree. But being a cop doesn't involve crying, or being bitchy, or lauging, or being sweet, which are the things that she's good at. When was the last time you saw an SVU cop cry or be a bitch. Playing a bitch is not the same as playing a harda$$. Being a cop involves all the stuff that she's not good at, like making serious, hardnosed, frustrated faces. Doesn't anyone else notice that she only closes her eyes, or rolls her eyes, or makes weird hand gestures when she's trying to portray those emotions?

LostHope,

SVU needs to get rid of the new ADA the McManus chick, I'm sorry but I couldn't buy her as a kindergarten teacher much less an ADA that prosecutes sex crimes. Katie Holmes was much more believable in Batman Begins than that girl, do you think KeMo could pull off an ADA? Personally, I'd much rather Nancy Lee Grahn leave GH and be the SVU ADA.
