Morgan Comes Back From the Dead!

This Summer, ABC launched a night time drama, Grand Hotel. Bryan Craig, along with co-stars Eva Longoria, and Roselyn Sanchez, to name a few, received some disappointing news regarding their career. Since the announcement of the cancellation of ABC’s Grand Hotel, rumors have been swirling around the idea of Morgan coming back from the dead.

Bryan Craig has been a hot topic lately in the ABC circuit. We all know and love him as son of mob boss, Sonny Corinthos, but more recently, his character, Javier Mendoza captured the interest of new viewers.

Morgan’s death took a toll on the city of Port Charles, and especially impacted the Corinthos clan. Sonny and Carly have been through the ringer when it comes to trials and tribulations surrounding family life, particularly their children. Most recently, although the birth of their new baby girl is a happy blessing, Sonny and Carly are still up against a difficult situation. Baby Donna has been diagnosed with Spina Bifida and will undergo major surgery.

The Corinthos family needs some light shed on all of the darkness that hangs over them like a storm cloud. Hoping that Donna’s surgery will be a success, there is also another thing to hope for.

General Hospital spoilers reveal ABC has cancelled Grand Hotel, which means Bryan Craig will be free to pursue work elsewhere. General Hospital rumors point directly to the obvious- a General Hospital return for Bryan Craig.

If Morgan Corinthos makes his way back to Port Charles, the Corinthos family will be whole again.

Will Julian Turn to the Dark Side?

Julian has come a long way for Kim. What he has become is something he could never do for any past love- including Alexis. Kim was the one woman who was able to get Julian to leave the mob life behind and do right by Kim.

Their relationship seems to be one sided. Kim even had to give Julian an entirely new persona in order to accept him. Julian changed his entire life for her, all while she has been pining for Drew. When referring to her encounter with Franco, Kim tells Julian, “It was like I was reconnecting with Oscar’s Father.” Julian knew right then and there that Drew has been what she has really wanted this entire time. He also came to the realization that he gave up his old life for her.  “Yeah of course you want that, you want him. Why would you want the guy who sold his restaurant to follow you to New York. Why would you want the guy who changed his life to become a better man for you? I mean, for us? Right?!” It looks as though there is no turning back for Julian “Charlie” and Kim. At this point, Kim is so far gone with her grief for Oscar, and her obsession with Drew, and Julian isn’t blind to the fact that he changed for Kim and now he isn’t what she wants.

Julian has nothing to lose in love and losing so much would be the perfect motivation to turn to his old ways. Is Julian a changed man forever, or will he always turn to the mob life when things fall apart?

General Hospital Spoilers: Ingo Rademacher Returns as Jax

kidneydramaYes, it’s true! General Hospital spoilers reveal that Ingo Rademacher will be back on set of General Hospital as Jasper Jax for Fall Sweeps.

Recently, Jax returned to Port Charles to deal with the drama of finding Josslyn’s kidney daughter, which his ex-wife Carly was eager to get answers regarding their daughter’s health. Ever since finding out that Elizabeth Webber’s son Jake, wasn’t the donor, for obvious reasons, (he turned up alive), Carly has been perplexed as to who could have given the kidney that saved Josslyn’s life.

The last time Jax was in Port Charles, he seemed very anxious and uneasy around Carly and Nelle. He discouraged the entire act of digging into Josslyn’s kidney donor situation from the very beginning. But why? Does Jax know something about Nelle that Carly, Sonny, Joss, and the rest of us are in the dark about? Since Nelle was a match for Joss’ kidney, General Hospital rumors have suggested that Nelle has to be related to Joss in some way, and that perhaps she is Jax’s daughter.

There is much more to this story which will unfold this coming Fall Sweeps, when Ingo Rademacher returns as Jax.

Nelle has an agenda that fans just cannot put their finger on. GH rumors have teased that she wants to move in on Sonny and get Carly out of the picture. Nelle has everyone in Port Charles fooled when it comes to her true intentions for hanging around the Corinthos family. She’s always up in their business and at the same time, she plays it off like she doesn’t want to get involved. She has made some shady comments, suggesting that what’s in her mind doesn’t match the actions she plays out toward Carly, Sonny, and the rest of the family. She mentioned in a disgruntled tone that it wasn’t her choice to give her kidney to Josslyn. We know it wasn’t out of the goodness of Nelle’s heart that Josslyn got her kidney.

What does she want and who is she? Based on the fact that Nelle told Sonny the story about her best friend and the car accident that is eerily familiar to that of Carly’s story back form her youth, has led to GH rumors that Nelle wants to take Carly’s place, she wants to BE CARLY. Whatever it is, Nelle has something to hide and we have just begun to see through her shady ways.

Watch General Hospital during Fall Sweeps to see this story unfold.

General Hospital Spoilers: Julian Set up Sonny with Car Bomb

julianThere is nothing new about plot twists and turns when it comes to Daytime TV, and this time around is no different, yet each twist and turn becomes a shock to fans. Right now, as we see it, Sonny wanted revenge on Julian for killing Duke, and trying to kill Alexis. The Sonny we know can’t be reasoned with when he has his mind set on doing something. Carly, Jason, and Michael all warned Sonny not to go after Julian. These events lead fans to believe that Sonny himself is responsible for the death of his own son, by putting a hit on Julian with that car bomb. Carly is beside herself, thinking that her own husband is the reason their child is dead.

General Hospital spoilers indicated that Sonny isn’t to blame. GH rumors indicate that is was Julian himself who placed the bomb on his own car in order to make it look like Sonny was trying to kill him. Was Julian planning to get into his car, no way. It looks as though it was all a set up, and he was willing to sacrifice his “employee” to accomplish this act.

What Julian didn’t expect was that his car would get stolen, and someone other than his employee would meet their demise. While Sonny and Carly now fight to get through their son’s death, and deal with the fact that they believe Sonny is to blame, Julian will sit back and let everything unfold while staying silent.

Who do you think set that car bomb in motion? Was it a set up for Sonny to take the fall, or did Sonny really kill his own son with his retaliation against Julian Jerome?

General Hospital Spoilers: Billy Miller’s GH Contract

BillySteveLast week, the shocking news broke out, confirming Steve Burton’s EXIT from The Young and the Restless after just three years as Dylan McAvoy. The time Burton spent at Y&R is merely a fraction of his 21 year performance on General Hospital as Jason Quartermaine/Morgan. Fans new and loved him as a resident of Port Charles for over 2 decades.

Last Fall, General Hospital news reports confirmed that GH newcomer, (Steve’s recast as Jason Morgan), Billy Miller had signed on a new contract with GH. However it has been reported that contract was a ONE YEAR contract, which would mean talk of contract negotiations with Miller should take place around this time. However, we are already into October, and Miller is still on screen as Jason Morgan. There has been no confirmation on whether or not Billy Miller has signed on yet again with ABC’s General Hospital. Fans of both Steve Burton and Billy Miller are scrambling to search for answers. The biggest question this news poses to fans is, “Will Steve Burton reprise his role as Jason Morgan?”

General Hospital Blog will keep fans notified of any contract information regarding GH’s current Jason Morgan, Billy Miller. So far, there isn’t a reason to believe he will be leaving the show, but on the other hand, there hasn’t been confirmation of a new contract deal either.

We want to know! Would you welcome Steve Burton back to GH with open arms as Jason Morgan once again?

Scarlett Fernandez Joins GH as Claudette’s Daughter. Is Nathan Really the Father?

charlotteClaudette (Bree Williamson) dropped a bomb on Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and Griffin (Matt Cohen), telling them she had a daughter and either Nathan or Griffin were the father. A DNA test revealed that Nathan West is Charlotte’s father, and Maxie broke into tears when discussing the outcome with Griffin.

Claudette isn’t known for her honesty, which leaves room for a tampered DNA test story.

Claudette is on the run from Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), and wants Nathan to protect “their” child, perhaps telling Nathan he is Charlotte’s father is her only way of getting him to help. GH rumors speculate that Claudette and Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) are working together in this baby drama.

If not Nathan, who? Claudette did say she was briefly involved with this dangerous man (Valentin). Could Charlotte be the newest Cassadine?

Scarlett Fernandez is set to make her General Hospital debut on October 13th.

Is Kelly Sullivan Leaving GH? Will Connie Die in the Jerome Family Mob War?

Ava Jerome is a new face around Port Charles, but in the 1980’s and early 1990’s the Jerome name was not an unfamiliar one. The Jerome’s were a mob family in Port Charles. In 1988, Anna DeVane was kidnapped and Duke Lavery joined the Jerome mob family in order to use their connections to find her. After Anna was found, (first by Robert Scorpio), Lavery wanted out of the mob. Ultimately, Duke ended up testifying against Victor Jerome, and Jerome was sent to prison. The other Jerome, Olivia (Victor’s daughter), ended up in a mental institution. The Jerome’s had connections with many PC residents. Victor was obsessed with Lucy Coe. Lucy did not return his affections which led to Victor swallowing a pendant he had engraved for her, killing him. Victor’s son Julian headed up the organization in 1990 after the death of his Father. He had his sights set on Duke. Julian ended up shooting and killing Olivia because she was going to warn Anna that her brother was coming after Duke.

It looks like the Jerome’s are back, and Ava is one devious woman. We know now that she was the one who shot Olivia Falconeri on the terrace of the Metro Court. However, what we don’t know is if she intended on killing Franco and missed, or if Olivia was her true target.

Here is where Connie comes in… there have been rumors circulating that Kelly Sullivan will be leaving General Hospital. Fans have speculated that the story will lead into the direction of the Falconeri cousins being the targets of this new mob war. Olivia was first but survived, and it has been said that Connie is next on the list and unfortunately does not make it.

This story is complete speculation from fans based on the rumor that Kelly Sullivan is leaving the show. No information has been confirmed on whether or not Ms. Sullivan will remain on GH as Connie Falconeri/Kate Howard. General Hospital Blog is a fan of Kelly and her work. We sincerely hope that she will remain at GH for the foreseeable future. We will keep fans updated with any concrete information that may arise on the status of Kelly Sullivan and GH.

Is Dr. Steven Webber (Scott Reeves) Leaving GH?

There has been a rumor that Scott Reeves who plays Dr. Steven Webber, aka Steven Lars, is leaving GH. Maybe all the hype is due to the rumor or Steve and Olivia’s split. Anyways, today on Twitter a fan tweeted to @Reevesforreal and asked about the rumor and if she could have a hint. Scott Reeves did not reply but he retweeted the fans tweet. Could this be the hint? Getting the word out on Twitter that he is leaving? What do you think? We fans sure hope this rumor does not come true!
