52 Years of GH! General Hospital’s Time Warp Episode

You won’t want to miss this year’s General Hospital anniversary episode. April 1st , 2015 marks General Hospital’s 52nd year on the air. The daytime drama aired on April 1st, 1963 and is now more popular than ever. In the last couple of years, the writers and executives over at ABC’s General Hospital have made the anniversary of the show really something special. In 2013, General Hospital celebrated 50 years on the air. Flashbacks and cast come backs have been huge since GH’s 50th with many iconic vet actors coming back to reprise their roles.

Three very special actors have been chosen to carry the weight of this special 52nd anniversary episode. Jason Thompson (Dr. Patrick Drake), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber), and Ryan Carnes (Dr. Lucas Jones), will be leading the show with what has been called a time warp epsiode of General Hospital. This trio will be portraying the original characters that debuted in the first ever episode of General Hospital.

Jason Thompson will play the legendary Dr. Steven Hardy (John Beradino), Rebecca Herbst will take on the role of Nurse Jessie Brewer (Emily McLaughlin), while the role of Jessie’s husband, Phil (Roy Thinnes), will be played by Ryan Carnes. These scenes will all be in black and white to display the full effect of the original 1963 GH debut.

The three stars are extremely honored to have been chosen to make this extraordinary tribute come to life. Jason Thomson tells sources, “None of us took it lightly. It was a real honor to pay tribute to the cast that launched our show. Let’s face it: If they hadn’t done their jobs extremely well; if they hadn’t grabbed the attention of the audience right off the bat- none of us would be here today.” Thompson, Herbst, and Carnes studied the original episode in depth, and they are excited for the opportunity. “It was so much fun getting into such a different style of performance.” Everything was very serious and straightforward back then, almost formal but really cool. And no one was overacting.” Rebecca Herbst tells TV Insider.

In the episode, keep watch for the recreation of the original nurses station, with original props, costumes, and more.

It’s safe to say that if you are a fan with a real emotional attachment to this show, whether you have been with it since day one, or have been watching for only a short time, this will really be an amazingly emotional thing to see.

Check out a clip from ABC’s General Hospital in 1963 as the first air time debut on April 1st.

Jake Remembers He is Jason Morgan! Will He Live to Tell the Secret?

Ironically, with the help of Helena Cassadine, it has been proven that she has been controlling Jake Doe with mind conditioning and a microchip. Dr. Patrick Drake confirmed Helena’s claims with a brain scan, finding the microchip hidden deep within Jake’s brain. He is undergoing surgery to finally put an end to what Helena has done.

All of Jason’s leading ladies are right by his side. He has Elizabeth with him in the operating room as Sam and Carly stand by and pray that he survives. At this time, these women are there to support a friend. Liz has been by Jake’s side since he was first brought to GH, she let him into her home and life, and wants the best for him. Sam has felt some strange connections to Jake, as her son Danny mysteriously clung to his side when they first met. Carly also feels a familiar bond with Jake, and she and Sam also want him to pull through to over come the damage Helena has done.

On the operating table, just before he went under, Jake had flashbacks of Helena giving him orders, and explaining that he is in fact the one and only Jason Morgan. He is in the middle of an extremely risky surgery and even Dr. Drake doesn’t know if he will make it out alive.

Will Jake live to tell Helena’s secret and reunite with his wife, family, and friends? Check out GH at 2PM Eastern!

Teresa Castillo OUT?! Will Sabrina’s New Attitude Lead Her Right Out of Port Charles?

General Hospital’s Teresa Castillo (Sabrina Santiago) has recently returned to work after being on maternity leave this past Summer. She and her husband, Shane Aaron welcomed their first baby, Victoria, on May 29th, 2014. When her character Sabrina Santiago left Port Charles, she went to Puerto Rico to be with her cousin Juan Santiago (Michael Saucedo) and the rest of her family to aide in the grieving process after losing her infant son, Gabriel. While she was away, Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson), the father of Sabrina’s baby, did some investigating with P.I. pal, Samantha Morgan (Kelly Monaco). They set out to find answers to who drove the car off the road, causing Sabrina to go into premature labor and ultimately the death of her baby boy. When Sabrina returned, Patrick had some answers for her regarding the crash, as did her ex-fiance Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise). When Sabrina went to visit Carlos in jail, he revealed to her that he thinks Ava Jerome (Maura West) was the one who put Rafe (Jimmy Deshler) up to running them off the road.

Sabrina has a new personality since she has been back to Port Charles. After learning from Patrick that someone was deliberately trying to hurt them, and Carlos telling her that Ava was involved, Sabrina has a one track mind on revenge. Since she thinks that Ava is the one who told Rafe to cause the accident, Sabrina wants revenge on Ava and her unborn child. She is headed down a dark path, and acting like a completely different person. What does this mean for Sabrina’s future?

General Hospital Rumors say that this change in character is leading her right out of Port Charles. It has been rumored that actress Teresa Castillo will be leaving General Hospital, and this new story line with Sabrina is just the way the writers are going to prepare for her exit.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans updated with any information regarding the possible exit of Teresa Castillo. At this point there as been no confirmation of this news.
