GH's Bob Guza Dishes Franco's Return and Sonny/Brenda's Wedding

Seems like Franco (James Franco) is also targeting mobster Sonny (Maurice Benard) and supermodel/philanthropist Brenda (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo)'s upcoming wedding. General Hospital head writer, Bob Guza, dished to TV Guide's Michael Logan the crazy serial killer and sometimes artist will make waves for Port Charles' "it" couple. Guza stated:
You'll know his character is somehow associated with what happens at the wedding, but just how he's connected won't be immediately revealed.


Will GH's Brenda Barrett Bring a Little, Dimpled Surprise Back to Port Charles With Her or Not?

TV Guide's  Michael Logan chatted with General Hospital's head writer Bob Guza about ABC daytime's most anticipated return, that of Vanessa Marcil. Guza gives the skinny on how long Brenda will hang her hat in Port Charles.

Let's clarify. You were quoted at the Daytime Emmys saying you have Vanessa for two years, but since then there's been conflicting word on that. What's the deal?

Bob Guza: We have Vanessa for at least a year and she and I have talked about going longer. I don't want people to think this is some six week in-and-out. Brenda will be heavily involved with all the characters she had important relationships with, especially Sonny [Maurice Benard], Jax [Ingo Rademacher], Jason [Steve Burton] and Robin [Kimberly McCullough]. I don't want people to think this is just a Brenda-Sonny story. If there was ever a time when Sonny really needs Brenda, this would be it, but all three of her romances will be revisited.


SCRUBS on the ROCKS: Guza Reveals Why Patrick is Going to CHEAT on Robin on GH!

When Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is away that old dog will play... TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan gets the skinny from General Hospital head writer Bob Guza on Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Lisa (Brianna Brown) playing 'Where do you want me to take your temperature?"

Lisa is going to get very obsessive with Patrick and we will go into a Fatal Attraction story," says the soap's Emmy-winning head writer Bob Guza. "This is not a Glenn Close sort of thing. Lisa is not a psycho. She won't be boiling bunnies. But that's not to say she won't be acting out in a big way.

Brown herself, later in the article, reveals what leads Patrick to go astray with her character. READ MORE

Was He, Or Wasn't He? GH's Bob Guza Speaks About "Rape" Storyline

In an interview with TV Guide's Michael Logan, General Hospital head writer Bob Guza spoke about the storyline that ABC has been tight lipped about. Was Michael (Chad Duell) raped or not? Why the veil of secrecy over this story line? Has Michael been raped or not?

Guza: I have never confirmed that he was and I'm not about to. Our focus right now is on the horrific experience of an 18- or 19-year-old who is thrown into a terrible situation like this. I just didn't want to make the story more specific at this point. However, that's not to say that I won't be getting very specific in three or four or five months down the line. This situation is going to rear its ugly head in a big way and Michael is going to have to deal with it. This is a story that needs to be parceled out.

Guza also confirms that Michael's stay in Pentonville is not for much longer and that his release comes "in a very interesting way." Are fans ready for the rollercoaster ride of "Was he?" or "Wasn't he?"
