When is Robin coming back. Thought it was supposed to be at the Nurses’ Ball.
Sam’s father died. Robin isn’t coming back.
I’m still hoping GH comes back!! I don’t know what I’ve been watching but it’s more like General Mess than General Hospital. Todd is mystery man, McBain is nutty physician and Starr is .. Hmm, either a Quartermaine, hustler, Jerome or hoping to trade one brother for another. Speaking of which, could they have found a worse Morgan? I’m worried GH is not able to throw this all in the ring and come out with anything resembling our old soap.
I agree, the pits!!
What about Alcazar, heard he was due back too.
Patrick needs more backbone, silly story with Ms.Preggy
Bobby should come back and everyone else that made GH the success it was.
Where is Sean and Scorpio?
Pleased that the Cassadine’s are all killed off except Mr. nice Cassadine, Nicholas should always be in Port Charles.
LuLu storyline is good I think
I think the stories about Star, McBain and Todd are Stupid!! 1st of all why doesn’t Michael recognize Star she just changed her hair color? She should come back as Star not another character, same with the other 2 guys. I stopped watching! The story about Brit and her baby, she probably impregnated herself with lulu’s egg, it’s funny she seems to be further along than Maxie lol. Where do they get these writers?
Whoa BETTY! You might be on to something with Britch taking Lulu’s eggs….. Stranger things
I agree with the Brit storyline being dumb. However I hate the Lulu storyline. Put her back with Dante where she belongs. I also really don’t like the new Morgan.
How could Roger Howarth be the ” real James Franco”? The character was Robert Franks aka Franco or Bobby Franks. The actor is James Franco.
Also, we don’t know who Sam’s dad is…..the man that raised her is dead.
The other franco was a fraud, Roger is playing the real Franco. Also Britt used Lulu’s egg and I am starting to like the new lulu and dante story they are good together. starr is a slut going from one brother to another she should not have been cast to play lauren. people will always think of her sleeping with her cousin michael. I hate this new snotty morgan. morgan used to be a nice sweet young man. Also put laura, lucy, scotty, felix, mac and felicia in the opening credits please. nuff said.
have to do twice for my comment to show.
It doesn’t really matter who he’s playing…this show STINKS…the story lines are so BORING… PREDICTABLE …TYPICAL stupid soap story lines…CANCEL the show. I was curious to see the OLTL stars in their new roles..and they are a waste of story lines. Even the new Morgan is bad..he’s got an attitude that is enough to make me stop watching.There isn’t even one storyline that’s interesting enough to keep me interested in the show anymore.
Please,please,please give GH a chance. The writers are trying to salvage the show from the snafus that occurred with legal issues with PP & OLTL. It will take some time–if stories don’t work out– well, the writers will go back to the drawing board & correct it. Just be glad that we have GH doing well on ABC & OLTL on PP. Love it when beloved actors from years past come back–even temporarily. LOVE GH & OLTL! This time last year OLTL was gone & GH was about cancelled. Just give them a chance…it will get better.
I agree, the story line for Star, McBain and Todd are Stupid. General Hospital was so dull a year ago until they brought in those actors from One Life To Live, it was a great improvement. Now since they cannot get out of the contract the actors were brought back as nothing. It would have been better if they stayed off. General Hospital needs to get a life or just cancel the show. One Life To Live was cancelled so release the actor’s from their contract, no one wants to watch that show online.
The guessing game for RH character is getting really old really fast. What I get from this that writers don’t know who the heck they want him to be. BIG DUH! Such a waste of his talent. If he is recast as Franco or Jason it would totally make no sense. He knows Heather so my guess is he is perhaps a Franco sibling.
As for Britch–I need her character to move on. She is a doctor would should indicate she has 3/4 of a brain. Patrick too. NO ONE IN THE REAL WORLD OR PLAY PLAY WORLD WOULD LET THIS CAT AND MOUSE GAME GO ON WITH THIS BABY CRAP! Enough already! Storyline mot believable.
As for LULU sorry but the new actress is not cutting it. She does not gel with anyone she is suppose too.
MORGAN……character needs some work. He left an innocent gullable kid and returns as mob boss in training. Not that that can’t happen but much was invested in keeping his image polished.
The new Morgan may take some getting used to, but I like that he came back pissed off at Carly & Sonny. I’m so sick of Michael buying into everything they say, it’s nice to see one kid rebel. What are they doing about the character of Christina? It makes no sense for her to not be around right now.
The best thing so far about RH’s return to GH is that his character, whoever it is, was apparently responsible for poisoning the relish on The Chew, Obviously, a former OLTL or AMC character would consider that “payback”. Other than that, I’m finding it very weird to have the three back as new people. But, I WAS right about the hair color changes. Kristen Alderson looks like “Claudia 2.0″.
I don’t know why but I believe that Roger Howarth is playing Stefan Cassadine probably wrong but thats what I think. Whoever ihe is they need to let us know I hate when they drag stuff out.
If he’s playing Stefan, that’s one body I really can’t see coming back – I mean, Luke drove a stake through his heart to make sure he was really dead.
I think hes playing Todd with dyed hair
@chocdiva: Actually, his hair–in style AND color—does resemble Stefan Cassdine.
@trina: LMAO! Now, why didn’t I think of that?
I’m very much enjoying the show right now. I think the writers (for the most part) are doing a great job. I’m just hoping they keep my interest through the summer, when they typically hit us with some silly teen storyline. As long as they keep a decent balance like they have now, I think I’ll be pleased.
I like some of the ideas mentioned here today – Britt pregnant with Lante’s kid, RH being Stefan Cassidine or Alcazar. I do hope they tell us the next time we see him though, I’m already fed up with the guessing game, but I like the interactions he’s having with different characters. I’m thinking he’ll have to be some one Carly knows since KA and ME were put back with the same actors they were with before.
Roger Howarth is Jerry Jax and the Brit storyline is ridiculous we know she is a ruthless you know what but she is no Fiason who she is trying to be. Dr. Silas McCray is a good story line…Lauren Kiki Franks Jermone is a little farfetched….Sonny a good guy is a bad story line…Just kill off Sonny. Mac and Felica I like, Lulu memory loss but remembering and being scared of Dante old…Milo and Lulu I rather see Milo and Felix…Bring back Lucky, Robin and Robert…Have Sean and Tiffany make a guest appearance. AJ and panic attacks is getting old…
Oh come on, give the writers a break!! I am just happy to have the OLTL characters back!! I don’t like RH hair, looks like a wig, I too, wish they could of remained Todd, Starr and McBain but they can’t, due to ABC goof up with PP. Let’s wait and see where the new story lines go. I can’t stand Scotty, Laura scenes, she belongs with Luke, I find Scotty very boring and was hoping he would be leaving the show. Other then that I love GH best soap on TV!!!!
Sorry my comment was not a duplicate, sounds like you need some positive comments.
After seeing today’s episode I’m with CHOCDIVA. RH looks like an unthawed Stefan Cassadine.
@Reta: I had to look it up to refresh my memory, but Stefan had been burned and disfigured before dying in a knife fight with Luke Spencer. So, hey, a little plastic surgery and voila! You come back looking like Roger Howarth with surfer hair! lol My biggest concern is the speculation that RH could be Jason. That would be the only scenario that would really be unacceptable to me, but I’m waiting to see where this all ends up. Enough mystery man—let’s get the show on the road.
I miss Jason so much. The show is lopsided without him. And could Roger be Rick Lansing?
I’m willing to see where the new characters for the OLTL actors go, but when the online OLTL gets cancelled – and since they’ve already scaled back to 2 days/week, so it’s just a matter of time- can we kill off these “new” characters and have them go back to playing Todd, John and Starr please?
Maybe he is Jason with his memory restored and wants to apologize to everyone it will effect. Wants his chance to run ELQ as Jason Quartermaine.
As for robin. She would not have agreed to appear in paris and jerry if there wasnt a future plan. As to bettys point, betty font you read links to other soap sites. Kiki can not come back as starr. Prospect park sued abc for naming chracter rights for oltl. It was either let starr and thr others go back to oltl or create new rolls for them. I dont care for their new rolls either but it was not by choice…. I wish starr could have been serena scott and lucys daughter and her and michael b together
They need to bring back CLAUDIA ZACHARA; They need to bring back the story line with Robin; get RID OF SCOTTY; and bring back JASON MORGAN. I hate him on Young and Restless!
I concur as well!
They need to bring steve burton back, because GH really blows without him….
IRT SAMMI………well I think Jason maybe back. Former Todd reincarnated as Jason–WOW cliffhanger episode.
If he is Jason he is no longer thuggish–DOUBLE WOW! This means he may be going to claim ELQ.
Sam and Alexis watch out what you are talking to Dr. Silas Clay he might tell the judge what they are saying about him and taking Rafe. Sam met him at the hospital in NYC and give him attitude he is Stephen Clay but Dr. Silas Clay he is not like his brother as a lawyer Alexis you should not to say anything i think Dr. Silas Clay will get custody of his nephew. I do not like Michael Sonny and Carly’s attitude to Morgan’s girlfriend KiKi how they know about her what kind of a mother take Morgan to miltary school because his father Sonny’s reputation as mobster i hope Jacks will come back and adopting Morgan
I agree the 3 folks coming back as different people is hard to take. Just glad they are back. The writing is was better then it was under the last crew. They drove the show into the ground. This Steve Burton moved over to the other show with Jill. She was a horrible EP. They are headed in the right direction now. They need to move a little quicker with the story’s and kill britt. I thought RH would have been a fun recast for Jason. I agree that he is prob the “real franko” .
I hate that they recast Starr as Lauren. I am a big OLTL fan and will always think of her as Starr, I hate her new character talk about a snotty brat. I am not liking the storyline with Britt. I wish they would have brought back Ethan for longer LOVE him. Miss original LuLu.
i agree Ashley i miss the original Lulu..:) & Ethan? wished he would of stayed too..:( i do not like the new “Todd”..omg! i loved his old self. he was so funny & kept me constantly laughing. John seems to be the same though as far as his ‘ora’ lol…love him too. miss “starr” oh, where is this show going!!!!!!!…….
I think he’s the real or remade James Franco. I am not doubting that the actor who played him wasn’t him, but he had a plan as nefarious as Franco is to have plastic surgery to pull this off. I think it’s cool that Kristen Alderson and Roger Howarth will be in a daughter-father scenario just like the Todd-Starr scenario. This will put the whole 6% stock of Quartermaine fortune belonging to the daughter. This is how I see this thing going down. Franco gets with big bro AJ and they make a deal that the two of them run QE. He’ll give AJ a run for his money. After all both AJ and Franco have teenaged kids to think about. There will be room for Tracy in the long run….like making a fortune off of the relish.
General Hospital is so boring. I loved Todd Manning, he made me laugh all the time.The doctor that looks like John McBain is a little freaky and if he gets Rafe, I will definately stop watching it. I think Rafe is good with Sam.I cannot stand the way Lulu is acting. I feel bad that Julie Berman left the show but I can’t stand the role she is playing. I want her back with Dante. I cannot stand Scotty Baldwin and Luke and Laura will always be in love, just like peanut butter & jelly. I always loved Lucy and Kevin (doc). This thing with Tracy and A.J. is so boring. I want Robin back, she was supposed to be back with the nurses ball. Nicolas and Elizabeth belong together. I HATE Brit, it finally happened with Patrick and Sabrina. I can’t stand the role of Milo with Lulu. I like the fact that Carly and Sam are getting along. I can’t stand Morgan (too big for his britches) and Star is supposed to be with Michael. I want either Kate or Olivia with Sonny. I like Alexis and Sean together. Maxie should tell Spinelli that he is the father of her baby. Lulu’s got enough on her plate right now, to take care of a baby. I like Mac and Felicia together. I really miss Jason a lot. I don’t like Luke drinking again. Monica needs to find herself a man. A.J. is scum for cheating on Elizabeth. I really want Roger to be Todd again, he was so funny. If Jason isn’t coming back, I want Sam with John McBain. How does Roger (Todd) know Heather Webber. I want him back with Carly.
No one can replace Steve Burton as Jason
General Hospital is turning into a show that will be cancelled. Why did hey show Robin if she isn’t coming back? I hate that Jason left, I hate Todd Manning is back as someone else, and I hate John from OLTL is back as the vampire’s, who stole the ring off the vampire’s hand, and why are they dragging out Elizabeth finding out the AJ is still the same?
It’s all junk, and it’s not the same as it was, and they better put the breaks on before they get cancelled!
It doesn’t matter who he plays…the show stinks now. It was hot for a while with good story lines…now it’s so stupid ..I don’t waste my hour on that show anymore..I hope they cancel it real soon
I think I can accept almost any possibility except RH being Franco. I *hated* that storyline more than green beans.
Summerdancer’s suggestion of RH being Rick Lansing is AWESOME. I’ll take that in every color and in all sizes please.
I don’t think he is though, since he didn’t invite Alexis to the party, and I cannot figure what his tie to AJ would be.
Well according to the “spoilers” we find out tomorrow (Wed) who Roger is playing. The obvious choice is Franco but isn’t that TOO obvious? Carly didn’t look like she had anything but dislike in her face today when we were left with her expression when SHE finally saw his face so maybe it really IS Jerry Jacks.
Also……..all of you leaving negative comments like “you hope GH gets canceled…..”?????????????????????? Even if you are bored, unhappy or WHATEVER with the show why would you wish THAT??????? You are/were a fan of a show and because it no longer interests you then you wish it into cancellation??????? That makes NO SENSE!
And it’s just my opinion but I watch Y&R and Steve Burton DOES NOT suck on that show! If you want him to play a Jason-like character then you won’t enjoy it but the ONLY thing he lacks in Genoa City is a hot lady that he has real chemistry with.
Thank you Judy in SC…I was thinking the same thing about the haters. There are plenty of scripted shows I have no interest in but I don’t voice a wish of vehement cancellation (reality crap like Bridezillas and Bad Girls Club, Honey Boo Boo, etc….that’s another story). If you don’t like it, don’t watch it.
Jerry has crossed my mind; I’m hoping the Franco thing is too obvious. But what’s the connection to AJ…? I come up with exceptions for anyone who I think it might be. I’m just glad we’ll find out today…I was getting exasperated with the drag-out.
Well now we know. It is Franco. How ridiculous has this become? What happened to the GH we all loved?
So disappointed. Bringing the OLTL characters was a big mistake. Now I see why Berman left the show.
*bangs head against wall and curses Prospect Park fiasco* Of all the things they could have done… they bring back Franco. BLARF. *groan*
I am finished with GH with this reveal. Todd is Franco? What about the age difference? It makes no sense. Kinky KiKi makes no sense. Watching Michael watching his girlfriend Starr make out with his brat ofa brother is disgusting. I could maybe stand the third incarnation of John but then I just fast forward through it now anyway but now there’s no need to fast forward since I won’t be watching.
I thought Todd brought freshness to GH and they were doing so well. I feel GH made a horrible mistake bringing the OLTL characters back as newbies. I don’t care if Todd/Franco is the real Franco or not it’s just too much. For my Todd fix I’ll just watch Todd on OLTL. Unfortunately there’s no cure for the Jason fix since I refuse to watch YR, having no interest in it. The only reason kept watching when Jason left was because Todd came and I did like the Crazy Connie storyline and AJ. And now Todd is worse than gone. He’s Franco! What’s happened to these writers?
Well, that frees up a good 40-45 minutes of my day. GH is over for me. Prospect Park might’ve won this battle. Curious what others feel.
Just keeps getting worse. Franco aka Todd reverses his bad deeds, why? in order to be a good guy and be welcomed back in everyone’s life? I’m so sad it’s changed into a series I don’t recognize any longer.
Even the acting of the regular cast has declined.
Any way we can start over?
LOL I bet Roger H. plays his part to the fullest, if he has come back as Franco watch out, he will have alot in store for us viewers, don’t count him out, I too, loved him as Todd, he brought a smile to my face, he was so funny. I don’t care for the new Morgan and I really hate Starr (KiKi) acting like a slut, that was a switch, she belongs with Michael. I too miss Jason Steve Burton, GH you need to get him back!!
Will the real Jason Morgan(Steve Burton) please please come back!!!! First there is Todd. Then he comes back as Franco, no way!! Then he’s Jason, ridiculous!!! Please stop all the nonsense already!!!
When Jason left the show I stopped watching for a long while! When I tuned in to see what was going on…CRAZYNESS Todd Manning has turned into Franko? Star has died her hair, and is now KiKi married to Morgan, and last but not least, John Mc Bain is now a Dr. What’s going on. Did the wrighters jump through the RABBIT HOLE.
