Jeffrey Vincent Parise Returns to General Hospital

Welcome back to GH, Carlos Rivera! It has been a while since we have seen Carlos Rivera on our screens. Carlos has been locked up for taking the wrap for AJ’s murder. He was blackmailed to do so by Ava Jerome as she threatened to harm Sabrina and her baby.

Sabrina is on a quest to find out who made Rafe run her and Patrick off the road with little Emma in the car. Will Sabrina help Carlos go free as she tries to uncover who put the accident into motion?

Jeffrey Vincent Parise reprises his role as Carlos Rivera tomorrow on General Hospital.

Victor Cassadine Was the One Behind the Accident, Did He Have an Accomplice?

One General Hospital mystery finally solved! On yesterday’s (August 7th) episode of General Hospital, Victor Cassadine revealed to Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake that HE in deed was the person responsible for causing Patrick’s accident that ultimately killed baby Gabriel. His intention was to prove his authority to Robin and let her know that he has the power to hurt her family if she doesn’t follow his rules at the Crichton-Clark Clinic. He divulged almost all the information fans have been waiting to hear for months. He explained that it was he who set the accident in motion, and that he put Rafe up to driving Patrick, Sabrina and Emma off the road by telling Rafe there was a possibility his Mother Alison Barrington, was still alive. Robin asked him how he even knew “that poor boy” and he gave a sketchy response.

Soon after Robin and Victor’s conversation, the scene cut to Nina. It would make sense that Victor has an accomplice to explain how he got his hands on Rafe to talk him into doing something like that. It sure seems like Nina and Victor know one another since she was also at the Crichton-Clark Clinic when she was recovering from her supposed coma. Did Victor use Nina to get to Rafe? When Silas told Nina the news he had just heard from Molly, that Rafe told her someone put him up to it, Nina has a strange look on her face as if she were guilty.

Do you think Victor had an accomplice in this whole thing? SHARE if you think Nina is as guilty as she is crazy!





Teresa Castillo Talks About Her Return to GH After Baby

General Hospital’s Teresa Castillo originated the role of Sabrina Santiago almost two years ago. Sabrina came to Port Charles in September of 2012 as a student in the nursing program at General Hospital. She has had a rough go at her time in PC with work, love, and life in general. Sabrina has become a very well loved character among the fan bases.

Recently Teresa Castillo departed General Hospital for her maternity leave. In a recent Soaps Opera Digest interview, Castillo talks about her return to the set of General Hospital after the birth of her first baby. Teresa’s daughter Victoria Milani was born on May 29, 2014. “I’ve really enjoyed being home with my girl and just snuggling her all day.” Castillo discloses. She is also very excited to be back at work with her GH family. “I’m excited to see what Ron (Head Writer) has planned for the next chapter in Sabrina’s journey.”

So what’s in store for Sabrina after the loss of her baby boy Gabriel? Will she and Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) rekindle their love or will Sabrina find love with Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) or someone new?

Look for Sabrina to return to Port Charles in just a few weeks. Her first air date since maternity leave is scheduled for August 21, 2014.

The PCPD Has the Wrong Man… Free Carlos!

As usual, the cops and detectives over at the PCPD have arrested and jailed the wrong man. Carlos is strongly connected to the Jerome crime family members Ava and Julian. He took orders from Julian and his job was to act out on those orders. Somewhere along the way Ava got her grips on Carlos and he and Ava went behind Julian’s back. Ava had convinced Carlos to try and take care of AJ Quartermaine. Once night at the Quartermaine mansion, Carlos arrived in a mask and attempted to take AJ out. The attempt failed when Luke and Tracy walked in and interrupted the operation and put some attack moves on the intruder. Carlos fled the scene and AJ was left alive.

AJ was now still alive and Ava was very angry. AJ was about to tell Sonny that Ava killed Connie so she needed him dead. You now what they say, if you want something done right you better do it yourself! And that’s exactly what Ava was about to do. In a plot to end AJ, AJ and Ava were together at Julian’s apartment. Sonny strolled in and saw the two and immediately thought Ava was the damsel in distress. He got so angry with AJ about Connie, just as AJ was about to tell him Ava was the one who killed her, Sonny shot him!

To hide her involvement in AJ’s (and Connie’s) murder, Ava blackmailed Carlos into taking the wrap. Ava threatened Sabrina and her baby’s life if Carlos didn’t tell Anna that he was the one who killed AJ.

Now that it is know by a few Port Charles residents that Sonny is the actual killer, when will Carlos go free? Carly, Franco, and Sonny have all heard the recording on AJ’s phone of Sonny shooting AJ Ava’s involvement in it all. Once that recording gets out (and we know it will), will it be all over for Sonny? Can what happen to Carlos be rectified?

Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Carlos Rivera) is due to start filing episodes of GH late this Summer. Carlos is expected to arrive on screen in PC early September.


Will Patrick Fall for Sam and Still Keep the Secret About Jason?

Sam and Patrick have been friends for a long time. They have been there for each other through the hard times. Patrick was the one who operated on Jason when his life was hanging in the balance. He saved Jason for Sam and only Sam. At that time, Patrick blamed Jason for the death of Robin, as she was trying to come up with a cure for Jason in the lab when it blew up. Dr. Drake was hesitant to perform surgery on Jason to due the nature of his career. He felt that Jason’s life wasn’t worth saving until Sam stepped in and pleaded with him to save Jason so she wouldn’t be left without a husband.

Sam was there for Patrick when he needed a shoulder to lean on when he was trying to let go of Robin in order to move on with Sabrina. Patrick gave Sam advice when she was unsure about her relationship with Silas. Sam also was in Patrick’s corner when Robin decided to leave him and Emma shortly after finally being reunited with her family. Unknowingly to Sam, Robin is away trying to save Jason’s life and Patrick is keeping the secret from Sam.

Patrick has recently suffered the tragedy of losing his son in a car accident. His good friend and P.I. Sam, has been helping him through it all emotional as well as aiding in the investigation to find out who caused their car to run off the road. Through this journey together, Patrick and Sam have grown much closer. They found out that the car that ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road belonged to Silas, and the one driving the night of the accident was Rafe. Rafe is Silas’ nephew and Sam’s foster son. Sam is even standing by Patrick after the operation on Rafe took a turn for the worse which left her foster son brain dead.

As Sam and Patrick grow closer, they may even fall in love. However, Patrick is keeping a very large secret from Sam. Will Patrick’s guilt keep him from taking a step towards a romantic relationship with Sam? Or will Patrick fall in love with her just as Jason is due to return to Port Charles?

If Sam and Patrick begin a romantic relationship, when it comes out that Patrick has known this whole time that Jason could possibly be brought back to her, it is hard to believe that Sam would ever forgive him. Perhaps Patrick should come clean before they get involved romantically.

Teresa Castillo Tweets About Her Return to General Hospital

Teresa Castillo’s character Sabrina Santiago has had a lot of ups and downs in her seemingly short time living in Port Charles. She moved to Port Charles to begin her career in nursing as a way to follow in her Mother’s footsteps. Sabrina’s mother was also a nurse. She passed away some time ago and now that Sabrina is grown she wanted to become a nurse and take care of others just as her mother did.

Shortly after arriving in Port Charles and landing a job at GH, she set her sights on Dr. Patrick Drake. Not knowing he was the husband of the (then) late Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, she fell deeper and deeper for Patrick as time went on. She soon found out who he actually was, but she was battling with Dr. Britt Westbourne for his affections. Soon after Sabrina won her man, Robin turned up alive and made her debut at what was suppsoed to be Sabrina and Patrick’s wedding. After Patrick ultimately chose his wife Robin over Sabrina, Sabrina learned she was pregnant with Patrick’s baby. Robin left town at the request of Victor Cassadine in an atempt to being he rbest frined Jason Morgan back to life. Jason, along with a couple Cassadines, has been cryogenically frozen and only the skills of Dr. Robin Scorpio have the chance of bringing them back. Meanwhile, back in PC, Patrick, Sabrina, and Emma were involved in a serious car accident. The accident cause Sabrina to go into preterm labor. Shortly after she delivered baby Gabriel, he passed away. Patrick and Sabrina lost their child.

This all led up to the departure of Teresa Castillo’s character. Sabrina left Port Charles with her cousin Juan Santiago (Michael Saucedo) and went back to Puerto Rico to be with the rest of her family. The actress has been on maternity leave and is due to return to the set of General Hospital in just a few short weeks. She will begin taping scenes in about two weeks. Castillo sent out a tweet last week with her announcement of returning.

When Sabrina comes back to Port Charles after grieving for her boy in Puerto Rico, she will be facing a hard truth. Patrick and Sam are debating on whether or not it would help or hurt Sabrina, knowing who caused the accident and the events that unfolded before and after. Will learning that Rafe caused the accident give Sabrina closure? Knowing Patrick was the one to operate on Rafe and the outcome that resulted may have an effect on how Sabrina heals from the situation. Let us know what you think. Should Patrick tell Sabrina everything that has happened while she was away?

Sonny Sees Lily

There is never a dull moment in the life of a high powered mod boss. It seems like every time he turns around there is another threat, another mob family out to get revenge, or take his territory, steal his latest love interest, or kidnap his kids. Sonny can never turn his back because there is always someone behind him waiting for that one moment where he is vulnerable.

One of the earliest of Sonny’s enemies on GH was his own Father in law. Lily’s father was a dangerous Puerto Rican crime Lord who eventually made the biggest mistake of his life. A car bomb that was actually meant for Sonny, ended up killing his own daughter, Lily who was pregnant at the time. After the death of his wife and unborn child, Sonny never forgave himself and this traumatic incident would shape Sonny Corinthos into the man he is today. Sonny was highly effected by the death of his wife which was meant for him. From then on, he constantly lives in fear that the ones he loves will end up getting hurt. This is why he left Brenda at the altar. Even in more recent times, with Kate/Connie, Sonny feared that the ones closest to him always get hurt, and he is usually right.

After killing AJ, then finding out Ava was the one who actually killed Connie and not AJ, Sonny has been under a lot of stress. The last thing he needs before he is done dealing with Ava and her pregnancy is more complications in his life. Apparently, there is a rumor that Sonny comes across an old Port Charles newspaper featuring the story of Lily getting killed. Why is this coming to the surface now, about 20 years after her death? Could Lily still be alive? Her son Juan has been back and forth to Port Charles from Puerto Rico a few times since his cousin Sabrina arrived. Currently, the two are in Puerto Rico and Juan is supporting his cousin while she grieves the loss of her baby boy. When Sabrina returns, will Juan come along with her? He may have a reason, and an agenda that involves Sonny.

What’s to come of Sonny coming across this paper? Weigh in with your thoughts and theories by commenting below.

Executive Producer Frank Valentini Tells What’s in Store for Patrick Drake

We have been watching Jason Thompson play the role of Dr. Patrick Drake for 7 years now. Since 2007 we have been able to recognize and appreciate his abilities as an actor. It’s always great to hear what General Hospital co-workers and TPTB think of our favorite stars.

In a recent article from Michael Fairman, he explains that in an interview on the red carpet for the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Frank Valentini let him in on what Patrick Drake will be up to throughout this Summer. He gives kudos to Jason Thompson for his amazing portrayal of the talented, good looking, father of the year, Dr. Patrick Drake. Frank Valentini revealed, “A lot will happen with Patrick over the summer and into the Fall, and we also have Sabrina’s return.  Jason Thompson is a tremendous actor who is constantly refining and reworking his craft.  He’s always in class, and he is such a wonderful guy and amazing.”

Valentini also gave major props to other actors on General Hospital. He explain that when casting new actors, they do it very carefully in order to keep up with the incredible talent that already exists in Port Charles. He mentioned Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos), Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos Jacks), and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis). In response to a question asking about the casting of Maura West (Ava Jerome), Donna Mills (Madeline Reeves), and Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay), he stated, “We have a tremendous cast, and we choose everyone very carefully, because of the caliber of actors such as Maurice Benard (Sonny), Laura Wright (Carly,) and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) … you’ve got to bring in some pretty big guns to compete with them.  You will see Donna Mills (Madeline) again this summer.”

We Know Who Caused the Accident!

Sam the Private Investigator and friend Patrick Drake are on the case to find the individual responsible for Sabrina and Patrick’s accident. As a result of the accident, Sabrona went into very premature labor and baby Gabriel passed away just shortly after he was born. Sabrina left Port Charles to be with her cousin Juan Santiago and family in Puerto Rico in order to deal with the grief of her loss. Patrick, a distraught Father, is sticking around PC and is determined to find the person who did this to his family.

Lately there has been a lot of speculation on who could have caused the accident. The writers have been making it look a lot like it was Rafe, and some fans thought that it was too obvious. Others suspected Nina, since she can walk and all, why not drive too? They also suspected Levi because well, no one is really sure what that creep is up to and doing in Port Charles.

But according to an article in Soap Opera Digest, it has been revealed that the person who caused the accident is in deed Rafe! The writers wanted to incorporate the story with the drug trafficing that has been going on with Fluke and the Jerome family. Head Writer Ron Carlivati commented on the drug use in Port Charles, he said, “With the influx of drugs in town, we thought that someone should be doing them, and Rafe drew the short straw.”


General Hospital Casting Call

The Executives over at GH have put out a casting call for a new female character. Although the description of the new role sounds a lot like Sabrina Santiago (actress, Teresa Castillo), we have been assured that this is not to replace the actress.

Teresa Castillo is out on maternity leave but they will not be replacing the actress, however there may be a temporary recast for Sabrina while Castillo is away on leave.

They are looking for an actress to play the role of a young woman who is from Mexico (Sabrina is from Puerto Rico), and wants to build a foundation in Port Charles with a medical career.

What ties will the new young lady have with the current residents of Port Charles? Will she butt heads with Sabrina or become her BFF?
