Today is the day ex-OLTL script writer Scott Sickles debuts his General Hospital episode. He wrote for OLTL from 2009-2012, and since the cancellation of OLTL, he will now debut his first script for GH today. Congratulations to Sickles and to General Hospital! We look forward to seeing all the excitement and drama Port Charles and it’s residents have to offer!
From an ABC.com Q & A with head GH writer Ron Carlivati, I feel there may be hope for Jason and Sam and JaSam fans yet. Here is a quote on Jason and Sam and what his plans are for this couple. “We have this great couple who are very strong and very solid in a lot of ways, who recently got married and are about to have a baby, but my intention is to shake that up a little and test their love – which I think will be exciting and interesting for the audience, to watch them try to weather those storms.” My take on this is that, no, they are not going to be blissfully happy (which we have already seen) as Mommy, Daddy, and Baby Morgan, but it doesn’t mean they are over. I have faith that it is just what Ron Carlivati says it is. Jason and Sam’s relationship will be tested and we will have to watch them weather the storm. I do believe the outcome will be positive for Jason and Sam and for the fans. These two have been through it all together and have made it out alive. Let’s not forget that Jason fell in love with Sam when she was carrying Sonny’s baby. Although I would LOVE for the DNA results to have been tampered with, and for this baby to be Jason’s, but if it isn’t, I know they can still get through this and Jason can still love Sam and the baby. They are stronger than this, stronger than Franco, or anything else that could come their way. Though they are having difficult times, I do see this daytime super couple going strong for years to come. JaSam fans have something to hold onto here. Keep the faith JaSammers!
First I have to start off by stating that I am still saddened by the cancellation of AMC and OLTL. Just as GH, I grew up watching AMC and OLTL with my Mother. That being said, I for one was really excited to hear that some of the OLTL actors would be crossing over and taking up residence in Port Charles. Some viewers have been having mixed emotions on the news of One Life to Love characters coming over to General Hospital. For me, it is definitely a plus. I don’t understand what would possibly be bad about these interjections. I mean, Port Charles gets new residents all the time anyways, so why not have some be familiar faces from other fictional towns? I watched Starr Manning grow up on OLTL and am happy to see her make such a splash on General Hospital. She is doing a fantastic job. Her first few days in PC were very emotional and Kristen Alderson brought it! I felt her pain almost as if it were real. And I say “almost” because let’s be honest, no TV show can compare to the very human, very real feeling of personal loss. But she definitely got us as close as it can get. Every Mother’s worst nightmare was played out in those scenes and Kristen really knew how to bring it home. As the weeks have been going on Starr is mingling her way through the people of PC and establishing some important personal as well as business relationships. I can’t wait to see where they will take this character in the near and distant future. I am liking her with Michael right now, but I am also open to other options. Matt maybe? Please feel free to leave a comment below and let us know what you think! Congrats Ms. Alderson, and welcome to GH. You are doing a stellar job!
You’ve heard that Felicia Jones is coming back to Port Charles, and that the one and only Kristina Wagner, who originated the role in 1984, will be taking it on once again. I am excited to see this vet brought back to PC and for her to reunite with all of her long lost family and friends. What does this mean for everyone she left behind? Especially her daughter, Maxie. Should Maxie forgive her Mother for abandoning her when she needed her the most? Maybe Felicia will be the only one who will be able to get through to Maxie when it comes to he bogus murder confessions. I am interested to see how Mac, Luke, and Anna react to her return. You will first see Kristina Wagner aired on GH as Felicia Jones on April 27th, 2012.
JaSam fans have been through the ringer these last few months and today’s episode of GH wasn’t any lighter. The emotion in all of the JaSam scenes have been heartbreaking for the audience especially for true JaSam fans. DNA results state that Franco is the Father of Sam’s baby. Call it denial, or call it wishful thinking, but I don’t think the baby is really Franco’s. I am not sure what happened, there is always the possibility of Heather tampering with the results, but it seems like she hadn’t been around long enough to get her hands on information like that. I don’t know which way they will spin this. If the baby really isn’t Jason’s, will poor Jason once again raise his brother’s child just as he raised AJ’s biological son Michael? I feel like the character of Jason Morgan deserves more than that. He needs a family of his own. He is always taking care of other people. Even when he fell in love with Sam, he was taking care of her while she was carrying SONNY’S child. I really wish I could see one couple on GH become a family and JaSam would have been the perfect couple to do this with. They have such a huge fann base and all the fans have wanted for years has been for them to be married and have a baby. I am still holding out hope for this baby to be Jason’s even with the most recent DNA results claiming otherwise. So what will JaSam do next?
Last week we were informed that ABC would be renewing the 49 year old soap opera General Hospital and would cancel the OLTL replacement show, The Revolution. As a soap fan I want to say that I am extremely grateful, excited, and optimistic. However, there are many people that claim to be General Hospital fans, and join Facebook pages and other ‘Save Our Soap’ type groups, yet they do nothing but complain about the show! Expressing their disgust on Twitter, Facebook, and other forums, these “fans” are hypocrites. What General Hospital needs right now is 100% loyalty and support from the FANS. REAL fans, not band wagon fans that only support the show when their favorite couple is together or when their favorite character has the lead. Of course there are things about the show that really get to me in a negative way. But I am wise enough to realize that I am not in control, and there is a much larger audience out there than myself. If I am not that interested in a story line, I focus on all the others that I do. If my favorite character isn’t front and center, I will wait it out until they are. The thing that would effect me the most would be my favorite couple getting the big ax. Right now things are looking gloomy for my favorite super couple JaSam (Jason Morgan and Sam McCall). Although they are being written in a way that is not to my preference, it doesn’t mean I am going to bash the show or quit watching. When it comes twists and turns and obstacles do I think enough is enough at times? Absolutely. I am at that point with JaSam. Jason should just be the Father, and Jason and Sam should be having this baby happily. (In my opinion of course). Throwing John McBain into the mix is fine with me. SO far I think Sam has not cheated on Jason as other fans are stating. She is simply confiding in someone when she doesn’t know how to handle the situation. Does McBain’s interference get me irritated enough to give up on JaSam? Nope. Just like the other aspects of GH that I may not be the fondest of will not make me give up on GH. As a long time General Hospital fan, I am proud to be a REAL fan all the time. So please, if you want to ‘Save Our Soaps’ quit tweeting all the negativity and show your support like a true fan should.
Happy Birthday to James Franco! Thank you for taking and interest and being a part of the legendary soap opera, General Hospital. It was a pleasuring seeing you on my screen. I thought Franco was intense, mysterious, and kept me coming back for more. Thanks again for your GH support! Happy Birthday!

For the past few weeks, Lulu and Dante had been making it pretty clear that they think Delores Padilla’s husband, Eddie is responsible for the attacks on the Vaughn’s girls. Dante and Ronnie found evidence that points to him. But was that evidence planted? I really think it’s Ronnie Domestico! That guy has always been mixed up into some kind of shady business here and there and I think he is finally about to get caught. From falsifying evidence to keeping secrets about Franco, I think Ronnie will finally get what is coming to him. And who better to uncover the truth than his long time partner Dante? As of Friday’s episode 4/20/12, Lulu confided in Luke and expressed her thoughts about who she thinks is guilty. She told Luke she believes Ronnie, Dante’s long time friend and police partner is the real attacker. How will she break this news to Dante?
