General Hospital Spoilers!





Here’s the Scoop! 10.02.09

I dropped a few comments on things this AM. One being that Rachel Ames aka Audrey Webber is set to come out of retirement to help her granddaughter Elizabeth out of jam. Is the jam Helena created? Was that the big return? No, Audrey has been living off camera ever since Ames retired. It’s been RUMORED a few times that Audrey would be popping back into PC with some fans even campaigning for the character’s death. A little morbid IMO to campaign for a longtime character’s death but hey to each their own. An Audrey appearance, Jonathan Jackson’s return and an affair with her ex’s brother… looks like Elizabeth Webber is off the backburner. Thankfully she wasn’t there too long. I know, I know, my fan affiliation is showing but then again, I’ve never tried to hide it.

Everyone wants to know more about James Franco. Most questions/comments are followed with a WTF? Not surprised with that question at all. But as mentioned yesterday and in countless reports on the casting, Franco contacted GH. Soap stars plow through ridiculous amounts of dialogue a day and many a past soap star have gone on record that it is some of the hardest work they’ve ever done. An avid student of acting and film making (he’s currently working on his graduate degree at NYU); the land of soaps is a genre Franco may just want to experience. Kudos to James for being willing to tackle something that gets ridiculed.

I asked which BIG return you’d like to see… in the comments we got the usual suspects of course. Is it possible that one of those usual suspects is actually in talks to reprise their role? RUMOR has it Genie Francis is once again discussing a return with the alphabet network. COULD the Spencer clan get a much needed reunion? I know we had one not too long ago but IMO that reunion was lackluster.

Another gala? There is some CHATTER about a Halloween party on the Haunted Star. Gala/Party + General Hospital writers = some sort of drama or death.

Secrets, Secrets, Secrets… avid readers of my blogs know I’m not a fan of the never ending, never revealed secrets on GH. We have Domte (whoever came up with that nickname, thank you) and his paternity not to mention his profession to be revealed. There is still something hanging over Kate’s head. Claudia’s role in Michael’s shooting (thankfully I won’t have to type those five words for much longer). The secret that Jax and Olivia know the truth. What am I missing? I know there are more. Anyways, the Claudia secret SHOULD come out and most likely will be the catalyst for her exit.

Kate fans… I’m wondering if her recent increased screen time should cause some worry. It’s not untypical of GH to use an actor more than usual right before they exit. That is my HUNCH based on past practices. I like Megan Ward; she’s been great with Kate’s over the top and completely out of character antics. Where does Kate’s story go from here? Does she blow the top off of Olivia’s secret and then head back to NYC? Sonny’s going to feel betrayed pretty soon and it’s coming at him from all sides. Olivia hiding his son, not to mention knowing the truth about his current wife, said current wife sitting on a major bombshell and once he learns about his latest and eldest child, the fact that Domte is an undercover cop is surely going to sting.

Is this too cliché? RUMOR has it that just as Domte gets the goods on Sonny; they learn they are father and son.

Speaking of betrayal… Sonny Corinthos’ favorite word. Nothing says betrayal like your brother bedding the love of your life. Is it betrayal or karma? Lucky nailed Sarah back in the day a character I’ve long said needs to return the canvas. Since JJ last stood in Lucky’s shoes the character has undergone a major change. We all know that regardless of the current Nikolas-Elizabeth story, the plan will be to reunite Herbst and Jackson. When JJ first hits town, I would ASSUME there will be some time for JJ to settle into who Lucky is now. I would expect to see NIZ getting outed. Lucky’s feeling of betrayal with Elizabeth and Nikolas’s guilt mixed in. RUMORS have Elizabeth realizing that Lucky is the guy for her but is it too late? Will Lucky do a little “soul searching” before heading back to Elizabeth? Will there be turmoil ahead for the new/original Lucky Spencer?

CRAZY and RANDOM RUMORS… Domte is pulled of the case. Will he be a cop no longer and turn into a renegade? Do the Cassadine’s and Spencer’s have a common enemy? Helena bends Luke’s ear. Can Alexis shed some light on the latest Cassadine drama? Luke hopes so. Carly isn’t happy that Alexis wants Michael to stay away from her daughters. Kristina is ready to go all the way and Sam is taking her little sis to get on the pill. I mentioned Sam and Jason getting busted. They’re looking into any evidence the PCPD had on Devlin that could link him to Claudia. Robin has some advice for Nikolas, forget about Elizabeth.

Thanks Regan! Smile

WRT "those five words," another site refers to it as "the Michaeling" or "the Danger," in case you want a shortcut in the future.

I could get into a Halloween gala if the guests are allowed to have some fun first - like they did at the wedding. Maybe it can be like a typical horror movie where everyone gets silly drunk before the drama starts...

Thanks Regan good to have you more ...........
Now I do think it will be great idea to have all the Spencers with Laura , that will be good
BUT my Q's love also wants them to have a big story , did someone forget that the Q's also have a big part in GH??
And I am happy for the Liz fans that she and the Spencers will be in a big S/I
BUT I don't want it to hurt my Mob especially Jason , I am big mob fan and I don't want it get reduce ....
Maybe they should ease on the mobster of the month and have them dealing with family and love stories ..
like now having Sonny dealing with his family , having Jason with Sam and with Michael ..
Please don't make the mob less I want to see Jason and Sam !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About JF I am happy for the show I think it s great and maybe more people will tune in and watch ....
I can't wait to see what nightmare he will be to my Jason ......

Love to have back more Regan , it is like back to normal for me

I do hope that Laura comes back soon, but as Laura BALDWIN and with husban Scott in tow.
Is it my idea or have the fans dropped LiAson now that JJ is back? Does this make JaSam OK now?

When my job gives me projects... I leave out important SCOOPS. Well important to me as I brought up the subject. Was it yesterday or the day before??? We we're talking JJ and how Lucky became a cop... well one of the possible, maybe FANFIC, RUMORS blah, blah, blah... floating out there is that Lucky MAY be quitting the force. We will see what happens but that would dash my dreams of Dante and Lucky being partners.

But Regan Dante can't be a cop when he will find out the truth ....
No one will let Sonny's son - the godfather a major criminal be a police officer ......

I have an ida that I don't like but maybe they will join Sam and Spinelli PI ... I don't like it but who knows ?
I don't want Lucky mobster for me Only Jason Sonny and Johnny can ...

I understand people being thrown off by Jonathan's youthful appearance but if he can play a resistance fighter against the machines I think he can play a cop.

I am hoping Lu-cha will be be a big fat breakout totally out of the blue hit. or that we see get Lumily. Or how about a Jason/Sam/Lucky triangle (I wanted that when GV was in the role, maybe it could work now.) Or bring back serena and give us Lurena or brookelynne and give us Looke. In other words, lets see them chem test JJ now that he is back. After all that Lizard has done to Lucky I dont want to see him just up and forgive her without a second thought. I also wouldnt mind some Lucky-Nik battles.

As for Lucky Sarah...Lucky was still suffering from post helena mind games. I think Kevin had repaired a lot of the damage but he was still unable to feel anything for Lizard if I am not mistaken. Being altered and hooking up with Sarah once is NOT the same and what LikNiz did.
Oh and I am with GHADDICT...she hasnt been on the backburner in more than 3 years.

From what I remember No Name was an exclusive restaurant that had no name.

Yes Sonny use to take his comfortable with the mob lady friends to the No Name back in the day, and he def. took Brenda there. I think the last time he was there Claudia was at another table. I love it!!

I don't think it's JJ's "youthful" face that has anyone questioning him as a cop. It's that he's Luke Spencer's son. That's always been an issue. I think it will be hard for fans to separate the Lucky JJ played in the past to who the character has become now.

Dante had no choice in the matter of his parents, so if Alexis and Ric can be DAs, and Sam can work in the PCPD, then he should be allowed to remain a cop. Alexis, Ric, and Sam (and probably others, too) all made a conscious decision to be involved in some aspect of the mob lifestyle, but the same cannot be said for Dante.

Season, I left a little something for you in Perkie's thread. Since it's the off-season for Lost, I figure we can be friends. Wink

I wonder though it Dante compromises the investigation, could we see his bosses cut him loose?

And that's what I'm genuinely confused about. Who has the character of Lucky become?

so the inevitable liz/lucky reunion makes me throw up in my mouth. in fact the whole thing is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

regan - so any chance sonny will turn to kate if he feels no one else has his back? remember he divorced carly for not coming clean about kristina for 2 years.

The idea of Dante going soft on Sonny when he finds out he's his son makes me want to vomit. I love Dante and am really enjoying him with LuLu but we all know his integrity will be sacrificed at the altar of the almighty Sonny just like the 20 previous characters we've seen fall at his feet. It makes me sick. I'd so love to see Dante really turn him in, force him to trial, something.

And I personally think the new storyline potential for Liz is great. Some might not think she's been a backburner character (though I think she gets put in the corner a lot) but there's no way people can say she's a show eater like Sonny, Jason and recently Olivia. Even when she's been frontburner she's not driving story. I for one welcome more of her, especially with Helena, nu-old Lucky and Audrey coming back.

curacaoman - NO! Liason fans have not given up just because JJ is coming back. Lucky is still the same guy that has treated Liz like crap for years. JJ coming back doesn't change that history. Liason belong together and their fans aren't backing down!

EET - Lucky has treated Liz far worse than she has treated him. She lied about Jake's paternity (I don't say that she cheated because the minute she found him in her bed with Maxie she had that marriage was over in my book) and now has slept with Nik. Lucky abandoned her to take Sarah to the dance, which resulted in Liz being raped. He then slept with Sarah when he came back. He then became hooked on pills, verbally/emotionally/physically abused Liz, and then slept with Maxie many times. He also accused her of having PPD and harming Jake when he was kidnapped (you know - the time Spam saw the little boy taken off by the nutjob and did nothing?). They are both to blame for their relationship for hurting eachother, but Lucky has been far more at fault.

Blackjack darling - ya know I luvs ya, but if Liz/Jason no good, and Lucky and Liz not good. Who would you like to see her with.

I would so love Sonny and Kate to rekindle what they had, but I am sure he won't forgive her for not telling him the truth about DOmte either

I'll enjoy any camaraderie while it lasts until January. Although, our issues over the Jack/Sawyer thing tickles me.

JS - ITA

This Liason fan has made a point of mentioning how much I loved original LnL, but my heart will always be about Liason. It's why I get so adament about them not changing Jake's paternity

Lucky abandoned her to take Sarah to the dance, which resulted in Liz being raped.

Hold up and wait a minute! WHA?! Lucky abandoning her is what led to her rape? I thought it was a sick perverted bastard's desire to jump out of bushes and rape children that resulted in Liz's rape.

I don't know about a GF return as much as I want to see her and I really do

I wasn't over the moon with the last two the Angel was well written until she descended back into herself showing reels her head of days gone by...that was sad.

but its good to know (even though dialog rarely mentions her) she's not sitting in a chair drooling with her hair uncombed she's now living in France with Scotty even though I didn't get much of her once she got out the hospital she was LuLu/Luke/Scotty which I liked but not on the entire canvas long enough.

I wonder would Scotty come back with her...I really liked tjeor
and dred a triangle in my opinion the execution is always off for me...so I don't like GH triangles...although the Olivia/Johnny relationship with Sonny and their son is intresting.....

I am a huge Webber Family fan because of Leslie Webber from back in the day..So Elizabeth and Jonathan's Lucky I'd like to see but I'm getting vested for 6 just months.... Eh....especially since their story won't have a positive focus with all this NIZ crap it cut down on the excitement for me.

I'm a huge huge Franco fan but not happy about what the rumor is his storyline may be even he can't get me to watch Jason right now..
I'll catch clips whenever...

I only watch scenes with Jason if he's with Jake as for Franco I'm debating if I'll watch this live or order clips for it and watch it later.

JS3557...I am SO mad at you for making me defend Lucky, but, here goes:

As far as "abandoning her...which resulted in Liz being raped," I'm gonna have to just agree with Season on that, because otherwise I may get unnecessarily angry. Wink

When Lucky came back, he was Helena's version of Lucky, so to argue that him sleeping with Sarah had *anything* to do with Liz, other than the fact that he, like Jason, seemed to reject everything from his past because he had been reprogrammed and couldn't remember, is unfair. (I can't believe I just used "reprogrammed" 1) in an argument, and 2) in reference to a person, LOL.)

All of his addiction-related actions were wrong, I'll give you that, but keep in mind the circumstances leading up to it. Jesse (the hottie) was dead, and he was injured. I won't minimize the severity of his actions - especially when he knocked her down, but this wasn't some after-school special where a kid tries pot and then decides he wants the hard stuff; Lucky's initial use was legitimate. (Please don't kill me, anyone - I'm not condoning drug use.)

If my husband was the last person with my child before she disappeared, then I might go a little ape-s**t and ask him WTF happened, too!

Love I am really excited about Jonathan Jackson taking up his role of Lucky Spencer. Lucky has never been the same since his departure. I believe the writers knew they wouldn't be able to recapture that same magic that Jonathan and Becky created. They both won awards that year for their stories. They were the reason I started watching General Hospital in the first place. I hope with the return of Audrey, and hopefully Genie that we get a REAL STORY. I know fans that did not watch during their infamous time together don't think it will make a difference, but I can only imagine what they will be like now.I hope Bobby gets some scenes. Bobby and elizabeth used to be so close, and unless you've watched for a good while, you wouldn't know that. I miss the kind of love that LnL2 shared being on GH. Everything's disaster, lies, affairs, angst, angst, and more angst. LnL2 used to make me swoon. I want to swoon again. We have a bonnie and clyde in JaSam, I want the writers to fix what they've broken with the rich history that the ORIGINAL core families brought to this soap. LnL2 were called a supercouple in 1998, they had interviews, public appearances and were loved by many various age groups. They were the last pure love of General Hospital. I'm also scared for the writers to mess this up. GH is but a shell of what it used to be. I may be getting excited over nothing, but I'd whether have six months of magic, then nothing. Becky deserves to shine, she's beautiful,and very adored by cast. She's given many years to this soap, and I would love to see LnL2 take off the way it did when they were kids. I hope the magic is still there...can't wait!!

now this is fun for me instead of all the bashing and hateration and name calling JJ's Lucky pre and post Guza.. it depends on if Frons and Guza like Jonathan if they do he'll get a good story with a positive focus.

If not they'll sign him up just to trash history so it really doesn't matter because IMO Lucky was watered down under the last two.

How (and if) can Jonathan repair the serious damage to the character of Lucky is is more my question.....I mean he has the acting chops to do it if "the writing" is there for him. But I have a feeling it won't be I'm hoping it will but I've been Fronsifried too many times by his hack Guza so I'm skeptical.

I thought greg rocked the addiction and jake storyline. I'm just ready for "cowboy" Lucky Spencer that JJ made so famous. I don't know how the writers would make it work, but I miss the spencers, hell, I miss all the original core families being used. The history of GH has been forgotten and drowned out by MOB. Don't misunderstand me I love the mob aspect of GH, but go back a few years and what made GH so great was that the mob was a PART of GH, not all of it. I miss the familial aspects, the romance, and when I say romance, go and look at classic LnL2 clips, and that's what I miss on GH. Granted elizabeth and lucky are adults now, but it's the ORIGINAL LnL2 who were labeled supercouple even as teenagers! I may be silly, but I bet they could recapture it. I would love for JJ and Genie to sign longterm contracts. Those at prospect need to recognize why Y&R do so well, they USE THEIR VETS young and older, they respect history. I choose to look at this as a sign of hopefully heartfelt stories making their way back to GH.
