I remember when they had Jed Allan playing Edward Q. I didn't really like the fit b/c I thought he looked too young, but after seeing him on The Bay, he has gotten older & looks it, he might work for a re-recast. I just think that the CHARACTER needs to be on the show so that he can groom Michael to be the next Q heir just like he always should have. Now that Michael is going to be in a REAL relationship (with a girl his on damn age), he will want to impress her & I can see her guiding him to the 'respectable' Q's. SO, there NEEDS to be some damn Q's around!
And Dillon or some other similar in age Q needs to come back so that Michael can have a Q-business rival.
Didn't GH kill off Lila AFTER Anna Lee died? I thought it was eve over a year after she had passed away
there was something about how she was promised she would always have a job and then she didnt anymore - that she liked being able to go in for the occasional shoot. I got it a little backward in that they fired her, she died and then they did the onscreen death but it was the firing that her son claimed took away her will to go on
if you go to this page a little less than half way down theres some info about it
From Suzanne, webmaster of this site: I am very saddened by this news. Back in October when ABC fired Ms. Lee, her son Jeffrey predicted that this might happen because Anna Lee lived for her work. It was what kept her going, he said. ABC was terrible to this great lady. I realize they are a corporation and make decisions based on financial reasons, but the way they treated Ms. Lee, who was a great actress, and have treated other seniors such as John Ingle (Edward) and Rachel Ames (Audrey, the last original cast member) is horrible and heartless. Companies do not have to treat their employees in such a callous manner. I have not enjoyed seeing what NBC has done to many of their seniors on "Days of Our Lives", but at least they did not get rid of them all, for starters. They treated each one with respect, sitting them down and preparing them for the news, and giving them a good story before they wrote them off. They give every exiting cast member a party with a cake, and for Frances Reid they even gave her a very expensive diamond and sapphire ring. They hired John Ingle with a contract after ABC's callous treatment of him.
When Ms. Lee's contract was up in October, ABC did not even bother to phone her, let alone talk to her face-to-face, or give her any story to exit. After we went around publicizing what they did on the internet, ABC put out a press release, trying to say that they weren't firing her, just putting her on recurring status, and they planned to use her in the future. They were lying. They never planned to use her again and in fact didn't even bring her back for the usual Thanksgiving or Christmas episodes. They were trying to do damage control because they knew the fans were objecting to the way they treated Ms. Lee. Shame on ABC.
Ms. Lee was a dedicated actress who devoted her life to her work and to her family. She kept in touch with many fans who are pouring in their well-wishes and sad regards via email. She was loving and hard-working. Even after ABC's treatment of her, she was too much of a lady to complain to the press about ABC or being out of a job. I'm sure that she would have thought that was undignified. I know she was greatly hurt by what they did.
This website will stay up so that fans worldwide can learn about her great career and remember her through the pictures. We will continue to add information and pictures as we find them. Thank you!
Anna Lee and other veteran daytime actors will be receiving Lifetime Achievement awards at the Daytime Emmys to be held Friday, May 21, at NYC's Radio City Music Hall; last thing that I read was that she was too ill to attend the show; apparently that was true.
Anna Lee Older News (from before her passing)
Ms. Lee had been commissioned to write her life story and was hard at work on that.
Anna Lee's contract was not renewed; in effect that means she is fired; it is an insult to someone who has worked so hard since 1978 and is beloved by all. ABC wants to still use her occasionally but not pay her or give her medical benefits.
GO HERE to see how you can help!!
Note that this is NOT a rumor, it has nothing to do with Ms. Lee's health, and it is not a mutual agreement; these things have all been posted on other websites but they are wrong. I have spoken with Ms. Lee's son, soap actor Jeffrey Byron, and I have been in constant touch with her publicist. She is very upset about this turn of events and is hoping that ABC changes their minds.
Statement from Ms. Lee's publicist: Miss Lee appreciates the fans support that she has received over the years and especially over the past few days..... She is dealing with this situation the best way she can and we will not forget you. Right now she needs to rest and figure out where she will go from here with her life. Her career has been important to her for over 70 years now and unless she receives a reprieve she is lost and searching for other things. Please know that you fans have the power and can let ABC and the media know how you feel about this. She loves her GH family and considers the fans part of that. God Bless you, Tommy L M Garrett, press agent for Miss Anna Lee.
John Ingle (Edward) was fired from GH, then he was rehired as a recurring cast member, and now he is going to be working on Days of Our Lives playing Mickey (replacing John Clarke, who retired).
Please vote for Anna Lee as favorite actress, and for both Lila and Edward as Favorite Couple!
ABC lied to us; they put out a press release in November (after all of the fan uproar), saying that they had no plans to get rid of Anna Lee, she would be part of the GH family blah blah...but then they never ONCE contacted her. Not once since her contract expired has anyone from ABC phoned or visited her. They just didn't contact her, then also put John Ingle on contract (he was smart and went to Days), then recast with a much younger man to play Edward. Now we never see Lila (even during the holidays shows!) and I'm guessing we won't unless there is a major change in ABC's hierarchy. Both Edward and Lila are now out of the opening credits of the show. It's so sad how ABC is treating their older actors.
A list of all of the Walt Disney board of directors, compiled by fan Pichi, so that you can write to them to Save Anna Lee!
This story was covered in Soap Opera Digest, Soap Opera Weekly, and the National Examiner. Soaps In Depth barely (and misleadingly) covered it; the press is getting pressured by ABC not to cover Anna Lee's firing in a certain light.
From Variety.com: Army Archerd's column 1/29: Anna Lee sadly tells me she's not received a renewal of her stand on "General Hospital." She's played Lila Quartermaine for 25 years. Lee, 90, tells me, "They have been like my second family -- the show has been a reason for me to go on." She's been wheel-chaired since an auto accident five years ago. And that tragedy, plus the fact her house burned down seven years ago, have put an enormous financial burden on the vet thesp. "I don't really know what I'll do." She claims she was once told by one of the show's execs, "You'll be on the show for the rest of your life"
From TVGuide.com, 10/31:
Anna Lee, who has played General Hospital's matriarch Lila Quartermaine since 1978, will be taken off contract as of November. The news comes as a shock for the 90-year-old, wheelchair-bound actress, who states through her rep that she was promised a lifetime contract under the reign of GH's former executive producer, Wendy Riche. "There is no such thing as a lifetime contract with [GH]," clarifies an ABC executive. Although Lee will no longer be considered a contract player, ABC stresses, through an official announcement, that the 25-year vet will still be utilized. "Anna Lee has been a beloved cast member of General Hospital for many years, and it is our intent to continue to use her in a recurring role as Lila Quartermaine on the show as story needs may dictate."
@EET-Thanks for this info. I am sure it was time consuming to research this. Much appreciated.
Thanks for all that info EET! I just hope JI recovers from everything soon!!

GH Chosen for TCA!
According to Matt Mitovich, editor of TVLine.com, General Hospital is getting a panel later this month at the Television Critics Association conference.
TCA represents more than 200 journalists writing about television for print and online outlets in the United States and Canada. Frank Valentini and most likely Ron Carlivati as well, along with several actors from the show will be there to represent GH. Clips from the show will be shown, followed by a discussion period.
This is significant because the TCA Press Tour allows the major television networks, cable networks and the Public Broadcasting Service to present their slate of upcoming programs to a large group of press writers from different outlets all at once through panels and interviews. It has been quite some time since General Hospital got a panel. This could be a positive sign that ABC wants to promote GH, especially with their 50th anniversary approaching in April.
GH RUMORS ---
GH: Tangled Twisted Tales
Rumorville: Jason is told by Anna that Sam's baby is alive.
Anna questions Jason about what was going on in Robin's life before she "died". She is following up on what Heather told her.
Jason realizes his marriage is over and he turns to Liz. They will end up making love (possibly in September), as do Sam and John.
A devastated Tea eventually turns the baby over to John and Sam. All four return to Port Charles.
Todd announces to all that Jason is really the baby's father. Jaw drop for the mix-matched foursome of Liz/Jason/Sam/McBain. Now what?
It is possible that Robin is being held captive because she discovered that Ewan and a few others were running mind control experiments out of Ferncliffe (where Robin may be being held right now).
Ewan, Helena, Grant Putnam and possibly Irene Manning (an OLTL character) are supposedly involved in the story (and perhaps one or two others, Jerry Jacks?) involving Mind Control experiments. It is also possible that Johnny is a victim of that mind control as well, which would explain some of his recent actions.
Jason may believe that Sam and baby are better off without him.
As with everything in Rumorville, take with a heaping spoonful of salt!
GH: Ring Around the Acid Trip?
Rumorville: Sam returns Lila's ring to Jason.
Steve breaks things off with Olivia.
Luke is found unconscious. He will end up in the hospital.
Trey has picked the wrong time to start caring for Kristina, considering his father's plans for Sonny. Trey begins to experience pangs of guilt for his own actions.
Deja Vu for Heather? Of the LSD kind?
Grant Putnam!?!?!! That's a HUGE blast from the past! The mind control of Johnny would explain his OOC behavior. I am really going to love this storyline. It's a big, deceitful, and soapy! GH has been missing that for quite some time.
This mind control storyline sounds good! Would be great if they explain Johnny's behavior with it. And it'd be great if Helena is involved. I'm excited that this storyline finally seems to move forward.
Luke is faking memory loss??? And I guess that's how he gets blackmailed by Heather!? After TPTB tried to redeem Luke ... this is the wrong way.
Here's a few more spoilers from GH Happenings ---
Heather's reign of terror appears to be over when Anna has her cornered. But Heather has one more card to play, and it's a doozy: she tells Anna that Robin is alive! Of course, Anna doesn't believe her... at first. See if Anna decides to follow Heather's lead. And find out some pretty crucial info about who's keeping Robin captive.
Heather's big announcement only comes AFTER she's done some serious damage. She poisons Olivia with LSD and she shoots Luke! This week, both Luke and Olivia fight for their lives and their families hold on to hope.
Luke is close to dying in the fire he accidentally started when Anna arrives to the rescue! Their reunion is cut short by Heather. Luke puts his life in further jeopardy to save Anna.
Later, Anna pays Heather a visit and Heather completely disarms Anna with a shocking revelation. Later, Anna tells recuperating Luke about Heather's shocking claim.
Lulu and Dante bond over their fears for their parents.
Luke attempts to make things right with Tracy.
The cat and mouse game between Todd and Johnny escalates this week, but it's about to become a whole lot more serious. Coming off of Blair's rejection of his proposal, Todd is in slash-and-burn mode. Look for him to take action against John McBain, but the biggest bombshell comes when his surveillance of Johnny uncovers a revealing conversation between Johnny and Connie... about who caused the accident that killed Hope and Cole.
Todd takes revenge on John McBain and sends the photo of John and Sam kissing to Natalie, the mother of his child.
Johnny loses it and partially trashes the office and in doing so, makes a discovery.
Connie pays Johnny a visit and admits she's keeping Kate from being fully integrated.
The news about Robin couldn't come at a better time for Patrick, who is circling the drain. Too bad Patrick may be too far gone to hear it. After abusing pills again, and hallucinating about Robin, Patrick's given the choice to go to detox. Will he follow through?
Lulu confronts Patrick about his continued drug use. Patrick confesses that he's afraid to give up the pills because he'll have to deal with the reality that Robin is gone. Despite Lulu's attempts to convince Patrick to get detoxed, he continues to abuse pills and hallucinates.
Mac returns Emma home because she misses her father and tells Maxie she can't spend her life taking care of Patrick.
Later, Lulu delivers Patrick to the hospital to get detoxed and enlists Ewen's help. Patrick admits to Elizabeth that he's checking himself in so he can get in check with reality.
Patrick convinces Elizabeth to give Ewen another chance.
Carly and Spinelli try to get Jason and Sam to work things out with each other. While Jason doesn't think Sam will forgive him, Sam stays of the mind that Jason pushed her away -- and has a plan of her own.
Week of July 30th ---
Lulu and Dante have a difficult conversation about their marriage.
Is Elizabeth in danger?
John McBain makes a horrifying discovery.
Alexis and Sonny have a plan to save Jason and Sam's marriage.
From NLG's twitter:
Nancy Lee Grahn @NancyLeeGrahn
Finished work just now with old flame. enjoyed the kiss that wasnt in script, but our producer insisted. Thanks Frank
Sounds intriguing. Has to be Sonny doesn't it!? There is no other old flame of Alexis on the show. Well I don't count Mac to be an old flame.^^
I don't know if this is true or not, but I had read on another board that Sebastian Roche (Jerry Jax) had filmed some scenes with Ewen. So maybe they ran into one another and he was the ex she was talking about? I love SR, so I do hope he pops up! I would love for Ewen to turn out to be Jerry's son, or Stefan Cassadine's long lost son that he never knew about.
I don't picture Ewen to be a Cassadine. But he could be Jerry's son. Would make sense after Liz once mentioned Jax and Ewen had somewhat of an odd reaction to it.
But I'd like to see the Cassadines more in involved in this show again. I miss them very much!
If Alexis and Jerry would meet, I don't picture them kissing after a few scenes. I could be wrong though but Alexis and Sonny are friendly with each other ... so I guess something is most likely to happen with them. And I know that Nancy would love it. She always thought that the Alexis/Sonny "thing" was cut too short.^^
But who knows ... anyway I'm excited for Alexis to have some action. Doesn't matter if it's Jerry or Sonny.^^
Ewen was supposed to be connected to Helena when he originally came on with the Lady in white story. Frank and Ron redid it and now no one knows for sure who he is going to turn to be related to. But I think I heard that he will be tied to Helena and Robin's story.
Internet speculations/rumors for discussion .....
1. Ewen is either Jax's son, Jerry's son, or Jerry re-dux.
2. Heather/Ewen knows where Robin is. Although since Heather and Ewen didn't seem to know each other when he had his session with her, I'm not sure how both Ewen and Heather can be working together with Robin's disappearance (although the RC/FV may just skip over that bit of history).
2. Given FC/RV desire to merge OLTL and GH, expect Heather and Alison from OLTL to be BFFs. They will band together to disrupt Port Charles in November.
3. Expect McBam sex at exact time that Todd reveals little Jason Jr is Jason's seed. September or November.
4. Anna and Luke hunt down Heather's lead about Robin being alive. Expect them to be joined on the hunt by Jason, Patrick, Dante and Lulu
5. Whatever happened with the stolen organ ring? Ask yourself who could Johnny be trying to 'fix' with new organs.....
6. Why is Heather so convinced her and Luke belong together? Has someone been planting thoughts in her mind? Who would want to see Luke tormented so? HC of course.
This all could be explain by mind control.
Heather is totally unstable. A few meetings with Helena ... yeah, I could see that.
I'd be happy if Heather's obsession with Luke would finally be explained.
GENERAL HOSPITAL SPOILERS/CASTING CHANGES:
- Obviously it has been reported that Kirsten Storms is back as Maxie Jones. It's been reported Storms will be returning to the GH set, Monday, August 20, while Lilley taped her last scenes on Friday, July 21st. Lilley's final airdate will be August 10th. So, therefore, there will be at least a month to two months with no Maxie on GH.
- Apparently we can expect to see a Jason/Sam divorce in the near- see future. At the GH Fanclub Weekend event, Kelly Monaco (Sam) says the latter two characters would be divorcing.
- I hear Michael/Starr make love in the near- see future, and will be long term afterwards.
- Wishy-Washy on Steve Burton's possible departure with GH. Apparently his contract is up in September, and Steve is waiting for a new project OUTSIDE of ABC and GH. Take this with a heaping spoonful of salt, because we're not too sure.
- Lulu and Dante are NOT breaking up/divorcing.
- At the Fanclub Event, Valentini says, "I'll just say, I love music and I love nurses." This Clearly relates to the Nurses Ball returning sooner, rather than later. I'm hearing November.
- According to Rebecca Herbst, Frank Valentini plans to "pull as many people as he can" for GH's 50th anniversary in April 2013. My insider says that he's already contacted more than several actors to pursue a return.
- I hear Olivia will be forever changed after her LSD trip. Contrary to belief, Lisa Lo Cicero isn't leaving GH.
- You don't know anything about Ewen Keenan.
- Elizabeth is in danger.
- This comes from a recent interview with GH exec. producer, Valentini. Look closely at the last line, and Make what you will of it:
"No one will perish. Some people will come awfully close and there will be some wonderful surprises coming back -- some true fan favorites from a long time ago and from not so long ago. Between now and our 50th anniversary, which is April 1, I think everyone will be captivated and engaged in every episode because that's how hard we're working and how hard we're trying to please and excite, and most importantly, surprise the fans."
Best Wishes and Summers to all, Carson
Jason and Sam divorcing?
I really hope Steve Burton just rides it out and does not leave. My heart would be broken if he left this fall.
I cant see ewan being jerry - ewan seems considerably younger than jerry, more in the age range of liz and sam and jason age range where jerry is the older brother to jax putting him more in that sonny/alexis age range.
As for JaSam, I think the comment was jason and sam break up, not divorce. It could mean they officially split before the paternity reveal.
Thanks for all the spoilers everybody. On a personal note, having never been to the GHFCW before, I can honestly say it was well worth the investment and I've already set up my "fund raising jar" for next year. As with the Port Chuck concert earlier this past May, I had a blast!...
Swan, you have to be more specific. Did you attend full cast and/or individual/duo events?
of course, you dont have to but I am a nosey parker
maxsmom-For you (and others of course) I attended the cast luncheon as well as JMB/KSul and DZ/JT. Admitedly my two favorites but also two that I've grown to admire greatly. (FYI-KSul was also interesting for me because of her ballet/dance background and two of the kids from one of my studios are doing Summer Intensive sessions where she trained. Nice bit of trivia for me to share.) Would that there were funds for eveything. The cast luncheon whetted the appetite to do more for next year. Barring unforeseen circumstances, whatever happens on the "cancelation front", the 50th annual event should be fabulous...
Oh and RH was just lovely. She and I talked sewing when I met with her on the autograph line. Total sweetheart...
Swan, thank you.
1.) Why does everyone have to try to save Jasam's marriage? Just let that shyt go already!
2.) Why does ReRon have to keep killing off OLTL character's "dead weight" families?? First Starr, then Tea, & now John?? Enough already!! I was not the biggest Nat fan, but I do not want Viki to lose another kid!! Just have Nat dump John after seeing that pic that Todd sends her, and have her tell John to stay in PC & Liam can come visit, but that she doesn't want him in her town! I don't care how implausible it is, anything is better than killing off more OLTL characters!!
(Hell, have Liam get sick & they discover that Brody really IS his father, so that John is off the hook in that regard, and have him be soo devastated that once again that kid isn't his, that he gets an attachment to Sam's baby right off the bat, something that Jason didn't do; which would be yet another connection for McBam).
3.) I want ROBERT SCORPIO to be involved in the hunt to find his daughter!!! NO freakin WAY do I want Luke to be there in the thick of things and not Robert, Robin's DAD!! Bring him back, Show!
Miry - RE #1 Bwahahaha!
Swan - So glad you enjoyed yourself. It's fun to meet the actors in real life. I met Jason Thompson and Greg Vaughn 6 (?? - I need to look at the date on my pics) years ago at one of the last Fun in the Sun events that ABC did in Indianapolis. Greg Vaughn is SOOOOO hot IRL. Wow!
ahanshew-"Fun in the Sun" is now a thing of the past for TPTB who are running the show at this juncture. Sigh...Sad...
Ahanshew when i met GV at the GHFCW even a few years ago he actually gave me goosebumps he was so beautiful. He will always be my grown up lucky!
Miry I totally agree with you regarding liam and nat as well as robert (i want him to run in to alexis and we find out hes sams dad too!) I cant imagine cartini killing off liam and nat. she could just take the boy to London or maybe nat sees the photo and beds brody again and they reunite --- really anything but killing them off. we dont need another character grieving on gh.
EET - Seriously, Greg is beautiful. He's even more beautiful in person with no make up on. His eyes are amazing. I agree with you about the 'grown up' Lucky. I love JJ, but Greg was my favorite. I actually LOVED him with KeMo.
For those who love pics... Access Hollywood has pics of the GH panel of the TCA's yesterday... NLG and JE both look wonderful, and they put KeMo smack dab right in the middle of SB and ME of course, and AG has on some crazy yellow pants! There's also some regular cast pics...
The front page of yahoo this morning had a link to a GH article also... but I forgot to copy the link.
Haha, if there was ever any doubt of AG (Luke's) sexual orientation there surely isn't now. Those pants are screaming!
Oh & it must be said: JT, ME, & FV are super fine!! I mean, they are jaw-dropping handsome! Can FV get a cameo scene where he is in the locker room changing into a scrub top while Patrick & Ewen are talking?? I wouldn't know what the hell those 2 were talking about, but I think it would make for a good scene.
Miry, I totally agree!! We need more locker room scenes with lots of sweaty chests!
Just in case you all hadn't heard all the rumours swirling, Jerry Jax is due back on scene any time now. One rumor I heard is that he kills Ewen and acts as the hero so no one will know he is one of the puppet masters.
Also, Elizabeth will figure something out about Ewen and because of that, she gets kidnapped and held at Ferncliff as well. I can't remember who rescues her, but that is where Jerry pretends to be a hero.
Also rumors are resurfacing about something I dropped long ago - that Jason has been injected with a toxin and that Robin's protocol had been successful and they will tie together in some way. A rumor that ties into this story is that Jason gets arrested for Franco's murder, and tests show something wrong with his brain (again!!) and he ends up in Ferncliff.
Also, a fire erupts somewhere and Jerry gives Alexis a heads up on it.
The first episode to be shown when GH takes its new timeslot will take place in Llanview, presumably something to do with Sam's baby. September has to be a blockbuster month for GH. They need really good ratings to secure their existence. Some sort of umbrella story is launching in September that will carry forward for a while and cover the whole cast.
I heard that Sonny proposes to Kate again, and that he says he will leave the mob. Still hearing Kate is actually an alter and there will be a 3rd personality.
Todd and Carly are supposed to end up together but rumors are circulating that Ingo has been contacted again.
I mentioned long ago that even after Sam gets her baby back, he will be kidnapped multiple times. So it is possible he does come home in September and then goes missing again in November as there is a lot of dispute from several insiders which month he comes home.
Lulu is supposed to get sick and this might be an early symptom of pregnancy. But I think they will wait on the pregnancy story until they get their signing off papers.
I'm sorry I don't have any info on McBam/Jasam/Liason. There are so many rumors swirling on this quad that you can't tell who is baiting, who is guessing, who is lying and who is right. I think this story has been locked down tight and people are actually afraid to share on it.
Shirley over at GHH says John Ingle will be sighted soon, but I had heard that his health was so bad after the loss of his wife that we might not ever see him again. I hope we do!
Some fun scenes coming up with Shawn and Alexis.
And Todd vs Johnny is at an impasse as somehow Johnny figures out Todd switched the babies.
Thanks supramom. Ooh, IR! I always liked him with Carly. That was the most realistic match for her that worked for me. I also liked the fact that he always had a good relationship with all of the kids, even when Jr. was scratchy with him. I has thought that his twitter feed had cut all ties. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. 'Bout time Alexis had a love interest if that's where they plan to go. L pregnant? I'd love to see that but even a "false alarm" type of story would be dramatic and I'm thinking JMB/DZ would use their chops to great advantage on something like that. The baby switch? Too drawn out but what can you do? And I really wish Liz could catch a break in the romance department. Jeepers!...
@Supra-Thanks for the tidbits. Sounds so exciting. I hope Ingo does come back for Carly. I still hope Brandon is staying on the show. It will be interesting to possibly see Lulu expecting. If Ewan gets killed, then who does that leave Liz with? I agree Swan, they are extending this baby switch for far too long. Every other storyline is going at a fairly fast pace. By the time Sam get's her sone back he will be walking and talking and she would have missed all that time. I can't wait until she finds out about Todd's doings and has herself, Carly, Jason, McBain, and Alexis going after Todd. Now that is what I can't wait for!
Long before Carlivati, OLTL had the great baby switch of all time and it lasted years.
BTW, from NLG's twitter:
Alexis goes rogue tomorrow on General Hospital. She loses her mind... and her clothes!
Oops-a-daisy! Should be a bit of fun!...

Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine) will be used in a stronger way, according to Frank Valetini.
Thanks for the update, sassysdreams.
I can only hope that with the Joe Jr. storyline, Sonny's finished with the mob for good. And so should Jason. Besides that Ron Carlivati can't really write mob stories, it's gotten really tired too. There are such so many stories you can tell. It would be welcoming if Sonny choses to leave the mob behind him. For good!
I hope John Ingle is better then. I missed Edward. Will be great to see him again. Maybe now the way is free for some Q story.
So is Jax back in the picture? Josslyn being sick and Jerry supposedly back in town should make it possible.
I don't really want to see Lulu pregnant.
They are killing off Ewen after all? Didn't suspect that even though it's been out there for weeks.
Sam has feelings for McBain. Yay!
And Jason rescues Elizabeth!? I don't know how I feel about that.
Crazy Heather on the loose will be good! I'm happy that RC isn't done with her yet.
Thanks Sassy as always. Love the thought of seeing IR again! Wheee! I'm with soapjunkie88. I'm really missing JI and more Q material. I love the ideas that seem to be floating that Jr. wants to be involved with ELQ. I'm thinking L will just experience a pregnancy "scare" to jump start an exploration of whether a couple can be fulfilled without having a child in this day and age. Especially in light of having careers and if either or both are tied into the search for Robin/helping Patrick. The differences in how each was brought up could provide some interesting backstory to build on. Could be funny too, if they allow it...

Sebastian Roche TV Guide interview, for those of us who like Jerry Jax... lol!
I will be thrilled if Ingo comes back. I also feel Jax and Carly are soul mates. I will love it if Jerry and Alexis hit the sack!
I find it interesting that there are no drops on Maxie, Mac and Felicia. I figured with KS coming back, they would make Maxie and Felicia go a few rounds.
ahanshew-Like you I think that IR's Jax against LW's Carly is the best match for both characters and actors. Sebastian Roche always struck me as a "James Bond" type villian. JL's last air date as Maxie is, I believe, August 10th. It's kind of hard to see where they'll slot KS into the mix at this juncture...
Swan- Carly/Jax - Absolutely! I was so upset when he left. For me and Carly! So glad to hear the announcement has been made!
Things seem to be locked down tight in GH land...
