So Ric Lansing is a goner… well MOST LIKELY he’ll be the murder victim in the big murder mystery for the summer. Rick Hearst will vacate his two time Emmy winning role in June. It’s a sad day, whether you loved or hated the character of Ric Lansing, Rick Hearst is a top notch actor who wasn’t used to his potential on General Hospital. What does that mean for all the Ric SPOILERS and RUMORS I already dropped? Rewrites most likely as WORD on the street is that Hearst was still in negotiations for another gig as early as last week.
Ric and Kristina… They were RUMORED to have a bonding time of sorts when the new Kristina hits the screen but with her step father not long for this Port Charles world that MAY not be happening.
Ric and Claudia… He wants a paternity test as soon as Claudia pops out that baby. Too bad he won’t be around to enforce his court order. Is Claudia the culprit? Her hits usually go wrong.
Ric and Sonny… Will the brothers make peace or will Sonny finally order a hit on his own flesh and blood.
Whatever it is, however it goes down… ABC Daytime is promising that Ric goes out with a bang. READ MORE

Dr. Patrick Drake as Mr. Mom… When Robin heads out of Port Chuck for treatment, Patrick takes on the role as single father. Who will pitch in to help him? RUMORS say Maxie and Matt MAY be providing assistance. While I love that Matt and Maxie MAY have some more scenes together, especially ones that have them helping out the fam, Maxie is spread all over the place and I think this would be the perfect opportunity to use Mac (John J. York) more. Let Uncle Mac help out, he did raise three girls. Throw a little comic relief into this PPD storyline cause I need something to chuckle at that isn’t the ridiculousness of this story. We SHOULD see some brotherly time but SPOILERS have Matt making some roots of his own in PC. Finally! Give Jason Cook something to do! We SHOULD still see Elizabeth helping out, maybe not as much, and mentions of Mercedes. READ MORE
