Find Out Why Next Week’s GH is MUST SEE!

CarSonweddingFans go back and forth with their opinion of the story lines and plots written for their favorite characters. General Hospital has recently announced that Head Writer, Ron Carlivati had been let go, and his place was taken by two Co-writers, Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman.

Help Bring Michael Easton (Silas) Back to GH

Who killed SilasWhen fans found out that Michael Easton’s character, Silas Clay had been written out of the show, GH executives received a lot of backlash from that decision. Easton is a long time ABC soap vet, gaining most of his popularity as John McBain from ABC’s One Life to Live.

When he joined the vast of General Hospital, Michael Easton reprised his role as John McBain from Llanview, only now then he resided in Port Charles. Due to legal issues between ABC and Prospect Park, GH was no longer allowed to use the name John McBain. Easton was then brought to the show, as the brother of Stephen Clay, from the GH spin off, Port Charles.

General Hospital rumor has it that co-stars such as Kelly Monaco (Sam Morgan), are very displeased with the way Easton and his character were written off the show. The buzz started at the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend in California, where people claim that Monaco expressed her dissatisfaction with losing Easton at GH.

It is now our chance to help get Michael Easton back to General Hospital as Silas. There is a petition with almost 8,000 signatures already. All we have to do is band together and sign, in hopes that TPTB will be able to bring this character back, despite the way the story for Silas was written under Ron Carlivati’s doings. Now that Carlivati has been let go from GH and Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman are taking over, there is possibility that we can get Silas back to Port Charles.

Please help us get Michael Easton back on General Hospital! CLICK HERE to sign the petition.

Share this post as many times as possible in order to maximize the potential of every signature to get Easton back.

GH Blog wants to thank you in advance for you support.

Breaking News! GH Head Writer, Ron Carlivati Let Go

RonCRumors have been spreading like wild fire in the last week regarding General Hospital’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati. The last few weeks, GH ratings have been low, but in the most recent week, ratings again began to rise. It truly is a roller coaster, the way these ratings go out of control. You know what they say, “you can’t please them all.” That’s quite accurate when it comes to General Hospital fans. No matter what is going on on the forefront, there will always be a group of fans who would rather complain and moan and groan, than to support the show that they choose to love. That being said, all the latest talk about the writing on GH brought about rumors that Carlivati was about to be let go.

General Hospital spoilers reveal breaking news, that in fact GH Head Writer, Ron Calivati has been let go and will be replace by two co-headwriters, Shelley Altman and Jean Passanante. According to Soaps in Depth, these changes will take place August 10th, 2015.

Here are some words from the executives: “We are pleased to welcome back two esteemed writers to our GH family,” said Vicki Dummer, Executive VP current series programming, regarding the announcement. “Shelley and Jean’s combined talents and experiences promise to continue the show’s legacy of compelling storytelling that will resonate with our impassioned viewers. We’re delighted with what they have in store for the show as they continue honoring the rich, diverse environs of Port Charles.”

GH social media, including Twitter, Facebook, fan groups, etc., will be buzzing after the confirmation of Carlivati’s exit. Please share this post in hope that we spread the truth, and facts, and less of the rumors and hearsay.

General Hospital Spoilers: Head Writer Explains Why He Decided to Resurrect Little Jake Webber

RonCIt all makes perfect sense really. It was nothing the General Hospital writing team had planned on doing, but to them, and now to the fans, it completely makes sense in regard to Luke Spencer’s (Tony Geary) exit story. However, the lasting impact on resurrecting Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) and Jason Morgan’s (Billy Miler) son, Jake, will have a lasting impact on the people of Port Charles as a whole.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, General Hospital Head Writer, Ron Carlivati explains why they decided to bring little Jake back from the dead. He said, “It really was not something we were planning to do.”

Luke Spencer’s exist story had to be one for the books. Since Luke was the one who actually hit little Jake and caused his “death,” the writing team felt this was the perfect way to make Luke and Laura’s (Genie Francis) adventure to be as memorable as possible, while also leaving a great story for the rest of the town, even after Luke leaves the canvas.With all that is going on with Sam and Jason, Elizabeth and Jason (Jake), and Liz and Nikolas, having Jake be alive will stir the pot for many story lines.

For all the fans that have questioned little Jake’s organ donation, Carlivati explains, “We had to pull out a bag of tricks, and go to our go-to person, Helena Cassadine, for help, and made it work.”

So what does this mean for Elizabeth and Jake Doe? Sam and Jake (Jason)?…

Elizabeth is still hiding Jake’s true identity from him. Knowing that he is actually Jason Morgan, Liz is depriving the man she claims to love of his real wife, Sam (Kelly Monaco), and his son, Danny Morgan. General Hospital rumors speculated that Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson), little Jake’s adoptive father, is on his way to inform Elizabeth of the news regarding their son. Once Liz finds out that Jake, her son with Jason is actually alive, will she finally tell Jake Doe that he is actually Jason? We think so. Judging from Liz’s past behaviors, it isn’t enough right now that Jason has a wife and son out there, but once she finds out THEIR son is alive, her whole tune is likely to change. In our opinion, we predict that Elizabeth will want the real Jason Morgan to get to know their son, little Jake and will ponder her decision to finally come clean, now that she too has a family again with Jason.

We want to know where you think this story will lead. Share this post and comment with your thoughts and theories.

What is Dillon Quartermaine Doing in Port Charles? A Possible Threat to Michael?

There is a new/old Quartermaine in town. None other than the son of Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot), Dillon. Originally played by Scott Clifton, Dillon Quartermaine will now be played by Robert Palmer Watkins.
Back in the day, Dillon was involved in a whole slew of things around Port Charles… including the late Georgie Jones (Lindsey Letherman), and Lulu Spencer Falconeri (Emme Rylan). Dillon will have a lot of connections to catch up with when he is settled back into PC.
What is Dillon’s reason for returning to Port Charles? A Quartermaine always has an agenda.

Right now Michael (Chad Duell) has completely changed his life. He has a new last name, claims a new family, has custody of a baby, and may have a budding romance with his sister’s nanny, Sabrina (Teresa Castillo). Michael has a lot going on including running the Quartermaine family business, ELQ.

Could Michael’s world start to rapidly unravel? According to General Hospital rumors, soon, the residents of Port Charles should be finding out that baby Avery is not in fact Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) daughter, but the daughter of Ava (Maura West) and Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig). If this is true, Michael will almost inevitable lose custody, and instead of being a brother to Avery, he will then be an uncle. General Hospital rumors also speculate that Dillon is out for the family business. With Michael in charge of ELQ as of right now, Dillon just may be out to take it right from under Michael.
Do you think Michael should be careful around Dillon? Let us know why you think the character Dillon Quartermaine is returning to General Hospital, in the comments below.

General Hospital Spoilers: Sonny Corinthos and Denise DeMuccio Showdown!

General Hospital Head Writer, Ron Carlivati loves to keep us on our toes and at the edge of our seats. He posts General Hospital spoilers with just enough information to keep us wanting more.

Via Twitter, Carlivati revealed a GH spoiler for today’s episode. Denise DeMuccio (Maura West) is the newest in town (or is she?), as she claims that she is just an uncanny look alike to Ava Jerome. Ava Jerome has been presumed dead by most of the residents of PC. Before her alleges death, she was wanted for the murder of Connie Falconeri, and since Ava is alive and well, this makes her a fugitive. Denise DeMuccio showed up at Julian Jerome’s (William DeVry) door, claiming to want to find out more about her look-alike, Ava. However, no one believes that she actually ISN’T Ava, not even the PCPD.

Ava has been trying to escape Sonny’s wrath ever since he found out that she murdered his fiance, Connie. Ava got pregnant with what we are lead to believe is Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) baby (but there will most likely be a plot twist). Odds are Ava’s baby is actually Morgan’s and she was only trying to pass Avery off as Sonny’s to keep herself alive.

Today on General Hospital, Sonny comes face to face with the women who may or may not be the one who killed Connie… Will Sonny believe that Denise is actually who she claims to be and not really Ava Jerome? Find out how it all goes down on today’s General Hospital at 2PM Eastern.
