Jaw Dropping Secrets Come Out on General Hospital (PROMO)


Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) confronts AJ (Sean Kanan) about cheating on her. Sonny (Maurice Benard) tells Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) details about her shooting. Meanwhile, based on SOAPnet's promo it looks like General Hospital fans wanting more Sonny will get their wish this summer. Watch two General Hospital promos after the jump!

    Elizabeth, I love you hon, but AJ did NOT cheat on you. You were not a couple. And you’d just told him that you wanted nothing to do with him. He had no idea when Nik answered your phone that you had just decided to give him another chance. So AJ could sleep with whomever he pleased at that moment. All of this to make AJ the bad guy in the relationship is on my nerves.

    Does anyone else think Sonny is talking to Franco when he warns that person not to go after him or his family?

    None of the stuff depicted matters to me a whole lot, but I am glad to see the story continues to move forward. I like the faster pace of storylines (as opposed to, say, taking weeks for many people to find out Kiki is Lauren).

    Oh please! I was doing just fine with his Guzaless appearances. I really hope Ron doesn’t write Anna the same way Guza wrote Mac in regards to Sonny’s mob bullcrap. Plus, I really would love to see Franco make Sonny and Carly’s life hell for a little bit.

    Angie Lucy, I agree. I actually thought the AJ/Carly hate sex scene moment was genius. I love Elizabeth but she needs to get over herself. Nicholas really isn’t that much better than AJ but hell, if Elizabeth wants to act up, then I’m okay with a AJ/Carly genuine paring.

    Well, it’s a sad day when you are more excited about a full-on Sonny promo, than anything with these new “characters”.

    I’ll honestly watch Sonny & Carly’s smug faces all day long instead of Frodd and Silas.

    I agree. Liz dear, it’s not cheating when you’re not a couple. Ugh, that whole thing drove me nuts on Friends with Rachel and Ross. They were on a break, he could do what he wanted. Maybe if Connie puts the moves on Sonny, we could have Olivia and AJ. I think she’d be good for him. Nothing like the lovin’ of an Italian woman.

    for the first time in a long time, I rolled my eyes. I was so hoping we were over the mob. I have the feeling it’s not Franco but the Jeromes, probably triggered by the whole gambling thing that Morgan didn’t learn from.

    I’m not convinced this is going to be a “mob” summer. Sonny is talking about threats to his family, not his business. I’ve enjoyed the dearth of Sonny this past year, but just because he’s in a storyline, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a mob storyline.

    I think its been so long since Niz/Liz/Quiz has been on screen, Ron forgot that AJ didn’t cheat on Liz, he just lied after Liz told him the truth about Nik. Sometimes writers forget what they write.

    Anyhoo, I hope Carly gets some of Liz’s wrath also, pretty pls.

    Then bring on Niz. I just hope they don’t resurrect 104 yr old mummy Helena to torture Niz.

    AJ didn’t cheat on Liz; hell he didn’t even really lie to her about sleeping with Carly since she never bothered to ask him if he did anything with anyone during their break-up.
    Sure she told him about kissing Prince Jackass but AJ was under no ibligation to share the intimate details of his tete-a-tete with Carly.
    Honestly I am so past caring about Liz and AJ as a couple since the writing for them has been so lackluster that I want it to end. I do think it would be nice if the two of them stayed friends though. AJ has no friends and if you look at the canvas as it is currently made up neither does Liz.
    Bring on AJ and Ava.

    SOOOO stoked that the promos did not have ONE BIT OF FRANCO… even in the background!!!

    Now, if the show could just move on from INSTA-couples like AJ and Liz or Patrick and BOREbrina, I will be happy.

    Pair them up but let’s see a fun date so that 6 months from now when one or the other is struck by a car, a stray bullet, an open elevator shaft, a tidal wave and they are lying dying with the other holding their heads we can see their “epic” love story in flashbacks. Of course they will survive cause we will need to see the flashbacks more!

    Build the story.

    If they stick to the promos and Sonny … anyone is central to the story… then I am there!

    I don’t think Ron and his writers forget what they write. In my opinion, the issue with AJ and Liz is that she told him specifically not to keep secrets from her because she’s had it up to here with lying men. Add to it her strenuous history with Carly and you’ve got a major issue. Its not “cheating” but AJ feels like it was wrong and it’s definitely a lie of omission.

    I would like an AJ/Liz friendship too, since it seems that Quiz isn’t gonna happen, and a good platonic relationship is better than nothing. I HATED Niz the first time, but under the new regime I’m liking it a lot better. (Probably because these writers don’t seem to hate everything Elizabeth.)

    AJ feels like the sex was wrong because (a) it was CARLY of all people and (b) he found out that Elizabeth wanted to give him another chance. His mistake is not coming clean when he could have, thereby making this snowball into a much bigger problem. If that’s what Elizabeth wants to yell at him for, that’s fine. But in the promo she specifically asked “Why did you cheat on me?” So yeah, it looks like RC is having convenient amnesia.

    It’s similar to all the times Sam complained that Jason cheated on her with Elizabeth. Sam and Jason had broken up (his choice, not hers), she was sleeping with her mother’s husband, so Jason slept with Elizabeth. But all the promos said “What would you do if your boyfriend cheated?” This show has a funny idea of what constitutes cheating.

    Unfortunately, it’s not just the writing for Liz and AJ. That’s bad in itself, but the writing for any General Hospital veterans has been terrible. The concentration for the OLTL old/new characters has just about wiped out any continuity of GH storylines. By the time they get back to the half stories that they were in the middle of telling before the “Charmed 3″ returned, nobody remembers what was happening. Or worse, nobody cares!

    These writers forget that they are now General Hospital writers.

    I am a relatively new fan of GH, and I have been thrilled with AJ’s drive and motivation to make a new name for himself. And to be quite honest, I HATED that he and Carly did what they did. It was too convenient and then Nikolas came back and now they have him as ‘the good guy’ while AJ is now ‘the bad guy’ and yet, I am feeling bad for AJ and hating Nikolas (who I LOVED with Emily as played by Natalia Livingston). It’s not working for me. I really like AJ and would like to see him win for a change without screwing up. But then again, maybe they are trying to tell us that AJ will always be ‘the screw up’. I don’t know. While I love Ron C’s work, this (amd the dreaded Brit/Patrick/Sabrina s/l) is one of the few things not working. Still love the show though.

    Thanks for typing up this post because it is spot on how I feel about Quiz at this point. Liz was honest about Nik kissing her and all AJ had to do was admit that he just had sex with Carly. The duo could have decided to either work things out or go their separate ways.

    Liz and AJ were doing a slow burn and I thoroughly enjoyed their scenes until RC had to shove Carly in the mix once RoHo left the show.

    The Nik factor is just plain icky, because sooner or later JJ’s Lucky will show up and we’ll see Liz torn between her idiot ex and his equally sleazy brother. Blech! :Sp

    AJ didn’t cheat at all.. That being said when Liz came to him opening up he didn’t do the same. In that light he did lie to her. More than that it is very complicated considering who he slept with.. On top of that and that AJ and Carly have mad chemistry. If there was a flipped script, (and I don’t really think there was) I think it could be because of the poaitive reaction to Carly and AJ. SK and LW clearly want to work together. Plus in all SK’s interviews he is always talking about LW and for a time KSull.. Maybe he was pushing an agenda. What ever it is though Carly and AJ are clearly it. Even though it shouldn’t work I just enjoy watching them..

    Im guessing that part of this is to open the door to a franco/carly/aj/ava quad. Liz makes more sense on the other side of the canvas.

    As for sabrina they should have her mixing it up with the younger set. Patrick IMHO is just too old for her, even if the actors are close in age IRL – its the way they have written sabrina. Im sorry but even when she said she was 27 I was like HUH?? because I thought she was closer to 23/24 maybe. Even maxie feels more worldly. THey ought to have patrick either mixing it up with liz in a patrick/liz/nik triangle or with sam in a patrick/sam/silas trio.

    If theres any bright side for the liz fans to niz, i dont see lucky coming back and that resulting in her being torn. With jj tied up and gv over at dool, i have to believe that if lucky came back it would be more to interact with his family and perhaps even to give his blessing to a nik/liz pairing.

    Oddly enough, this is sort of the storyline I want to see play out. Only this time Niz will become a full-fledged couple, about to say their ‘I do’s’ when Lucky shows up professing his love (and regret) to Elizabeth. And for the first time since her inception, Elizabeth will NOT choose Lucky.

    This is the story that should have played out for Liason. Liz chooses Jason and tells Lucky to go kick rocks! :)

    Oh, Liz. Still a self-righteous hypocrite after all these years. She should not have said “cheating,” after they went on ONE date. Liz screwed her husband’s brother behind his back, so… yeah. The only reason I like Liz being around is for people like Carly to tell her off (nothing against Becky Herbst – I was pissed when she got fired and I enjoy her acting).

    Carly/AJ is brilliant. Every scene they have together is solid gold. TPTB need to let go of the ridiculous RoHo/Laura Wright obsession because it was overrated from day one and now, with the reassignment of characters, makes no sense. If Carly EVER gets with Franco, her character will be forever ruined. I don’t care what kind of rewrites they do – Carly associates that man with her son being raped and she would NEVER spread her legs for that.

    The best thing that could happen for the show right now would be getting rid of Franco (sorry but it needs to happen) and Silas (Easton plays himself and without vampire teeth, any attempt to not be John McBain comes off as pretty shabby). Kiki is basically Starr without the goody-goody nonsense, so she can stay.

    As much as I can’t believe I’m saying this, I actually think the show needs to focus on the mob a little bit right now. Not forever, but a good storyline about the Jeromes and Duke is in order. Otherwise, get rid of Duke. Dressing up in drag once a month does not justify his presence.

    I’m pretty over GH these days, but I will admit that the Sean/Alexis scenes surprised me and really came off well. I have never had any use for Sean at all, and here I was pretty engrossed. For me, just turning off the mob element doesn’t work unless you get rid of the mob characters. The mob is too big a part of the show’s tapestry – even Tracy Q was in the mob. And I would love to see her involved in whatever Jerome story arises.

    I agree that I don’t mind the show focusing on the mob again – GIVEN that it means less time for notFranco. I would like a juicy storyline with the Jeromes, first Ava running the whole thing and revealing herself as a true mob vixen, then slowly they could reveal other Jeromes are still alive, slowly reveal that Sam’s father is a Jerome, and has things left unsettled with Alexis, then once upon a day a certain Lucas Jones – the biological son of Julian Jerome could pop up into town to trick his aunt/? Ava he’s on their side and help to bring them all down. And of course the continuation or part two od the infamous Anna & Duke vs. the Jeromes fight. And yes, there is also a place for Sonny and his new moll Olivia in all of this. Perhaps Connie could get killed in the crossfire! THAT is what I’m looking for.

    It’s a real shame about AJ & Liz – I really loved the beginning of their relationship, it was playful, realistic and on a slow burn. Very believable. I wanted them to become a long-term couple. I even imagined them getting married and that there would be an “Elizabeth Quartermaine” (Damn that sounds good). And I really also got the impression that Cartini planned to make it the long-haul couple.

    But obviously not. Since SK and LW clearly want to work together and TC has now been upgraded to contract status, I don’t see how they could ever become a real bonafide couple :( I’m bummed.

    That sure was a lot of bar ware Sonny sent flying in promo #2. It’s been a while, I guess he needed to make up for lost time. I hope the story is good for Sonny, Maurice looks so bored these days.

    Perhaps AJ and Carly are going to have more hate sex and that will be the “cheating” that Liz is referring to?

    If it plays out like it looks, then Liz is wrong to say that he cheated on her. I’m hoping that she hears they slept together, assumes that it was while they were together, then she is told when it happens, and it switches to her asking why he lied/kept it a secret when she told him she and Nik kissed. These promos are often misleading or out of context.

    I, for one, love Niz and look forward to their love story.

    Someone else posted that Liz should not be upset if she is cheated on because she cheated on Lucky. Yes, she cheated. SHe was berated and punished for it. SHe felt bad. She apologized. It was the only time she ever cheated on anyone. That does not mean that she should just accept someone cheating on her.

    I actually didn’t understand the comment Carly made recently about Liz not being the most faithful woman in PC. Liz only cheated on Lucky with Nik. She never cheated on him or anyone else with anyone. SOme may want to say she cheated on Lucky with Jason, but she only slept with Jason after she found Lucky in her own bed having sex with teenaged Maxie. At that point, IMHO, her marriage was over and she didn’t owe Lucky a thing.

    I am so over Liz and Nik. She needs someone new and AJ seems to be changing his ways. I like that he hasn’t come back all perfect. He’s a work in progress like most of us…LOL And technically, he didn’t cheat on her but it’s still not a classy move to jump into bed with an ex (especially Carly of all people!!) the second a romantic prospect cuts you loose. Hopefully, Liz will give him another chance. This is an interesting pairing…she had a child with his brother, the woman he cheated on her with is someone who she has a long history with, etc. I hope TPTB don’t drop the ball on this couple :)

    I notice that Laura Wright’s hair was much longer in one of the promo shots which makes me wonder just how far in advance does GH film?

    I would like to see someone react to the mob stories in an authentic manner. Sonny is a criminal and basically Alexis is too. She helps a criminal stay out of jail and continue to commit crimes. It would be interesting to see Sonny have a change of heart about what he’s done with his life and to other people and “leave” the mob life. That would make an interesting story and character development. He could get a job managing Kelly’s :)

    Frodd and Silas just aren’t working. It’s too bad they couldn’t have just kept them as their old characters. These new ones just aren’t working. The should let them go then when and if the new OLTL folds again, they could bring those characters back to GH. I watched GH yesterday with a friend who used to watch ATWT and had never seen OLTL and her response to Roger Howarth was that he was acting just like Paul on ATWT. It’s been noted many times, that RH’s acting range is just not that wide and it shows by how this character just isn’t working.

    I was so on board for a Liz/AJ pairing because it started out very sweet and genuine. I liked their friendship and I could actually see what they saw in one another. I also like the idea of a triangle with Nik but at the same time don’t know if I trust these writers to do it justice.

    I have such a love/hate relationship with GH right now. While Cartini is TONS better than the previous regime, there are still lame, one-dimensional characters, disregard for certain history, and probably the biggest stupid mistake that every soaprunner makes which is bringing in slews of new, un-related characters that dominate the airtime. I understand that new blood and younger generations need to be brought in but it should be done slowly, subtly and organically, ESPECIALLY when its characters that have no real connection or history on the canvas. There are lots of younger characters with real history and connections to the canvas that could be brought on instead of those that we see everyday. Dillon Quartermaine, Brooklyn Ashton, Tommy Hardy and a younger sister of his or Maya and some younger Wards, Sarah Webber and a younger Webber brother and Lucas Jones all could have easily taken the place of Spinelli, Ellie, Brit, Felix and his sister, Sabrina, TJ and Rafe. And we now have Ava Jerome?! What story can you tell with her that you can’t tell with Skye Quartermaine? And I would take Alexis with Ned or even Justus over Shawn any day of the week. And I think the real kicker for me is that we are stuck Kiki, Frodd and whatever Michael Easton’s new characters name is, all characters and actors aren’t that relevant to GH compared to characters like Alan, Bobbie and Laura who would probably come back full-time if given the opportunity and who have decades of history with the show, and tons of current connections on canvas yet they are nowhere to be found.

    My bottom line is I’m so tired of watching tons of characters I don’t care about just to get to the few that I do care about whose stories aren’t that great to begin with. I just wish Cartini had different priorities when it came to this show because I miss the characters and families I grew up with. But I guess if that is how I feel I dont have to watch.

    You’ve hit the nail on the head! I watched today just groaning and fast-forwarding patrick/sabrina (I’ve never been so over Patrick before… yikes), Taylor and Brit (two one-dimensional characters), Sean/TJ (mildly okay at best and definitely not Meryl Streeps), Ellie and Spinelli (two of the most annoying people ever on television), and everyone saying goodbye to Cole Thornhart… er, I mean, Rafe, for the thousandth time… always awkward watching people care about a character you don’t give a damn about. And there is poor Lynn Herring, not really rising above the lameness. Poor thing, she’s almost trying too hard at this point.

    All of that crap just to get the Luke/Tracey scenes. And even there, nothing happens.

    But heck, can’t wait to tune in tomorrow to watch a baby get chemotherapy.

    You know, this is a major red flag.

    I realized the same thing just the other day, that two years ago to last year I loved Patrick as a character, and loved how prominently he was showcased after Robin’s “death”. And now, I can’t stand the sight of him. This combined with JT giving statements that he is in support of a full on love story between him and TC, it’s downgraded the whole character to the pits for me. Too bad, too sad, to waste a good actor on that vapid non-character “Sabby” and this drivel of a storyline!

    About the smartest and succinct post i’ve read in weeks. EXACTLY! The “3 That Ate Port Charles” has ruined any momentum any other story had. Where in the hell is Maxie? I’d also argue that JMB leaving also poked a big hole in the GH balloon as well. I still find the show struggling to recover from the OLTL returns and the Lulu recast with the annoying WHINE of Emme Rylan. (I need to give a shout out to my soap friend who is irked by her pronunciation of “DON-tay” as opposed to the proper “Dän – tay”.) Maybe the smartest thing they can do at this point is having Lulu play sleuth for “Don-tay” LOL, maybe this can help to redeem the actress in my eyes.

    RC sees now that in the romance department Liz is a cold fish. Liz couldn’t add spark to a fire if they gave her a BIC!Its nothing there. Either out her with someone and move on. Only a few is interested in Liz trying to be paired. Hell they have given her many of men to pair with and none have but anything BUT Luckuy. Jizzers say Jason and they are the only ones. Sam had Jason nailed down and they were t he hottest, sexiest couples on GH for a while. Like to see Liz taken out the always WTBD storylines and trying to make it seem that a man was in love with her simply because she got pregnant. That’s so TPT thinking and degrading women who have sense.
