General Hospital Executive Producer Frank Valentini Reveals the Return of Villains this Fall!

Executives over at General Hospital have just announced the time slot change for the 51 year old soap. After 2 years of airing at 2PM Eastern/1Pm Pacific, General Hospital will return to it’s long aired time of 3PM Eastern/2PM Pacific. General Hospital Executive Producer, Frank Valentini explains that in celebration of the time change, there are big stories and big characters promised for this coming Fall.

In regard to big stories, Valentini states, “We’re interested in pushing the envelope in a way that challenges the audience’s ability to accept, understand and be entertained by the show.” The story involving the evil Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis), the brilliant Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough), and the mob enforcer, Jason Morgan (Billy Miller), will play a big role in upcoming stories. Look out for more villains to return to the canvas. Valentini reveals, “Some favorite villains will be back in the fall.  I think the fans will be really excited to see what kind of trouble they will be causing.  There will be male and female villains returning, who are our fan favorites who will be causing problems for our friends in Port Charles.”

 

Are you happy about the new time change?

Do you think Stavros Cassadine (Robert Kelker-Kelly) and Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) will be “defrosted” so to speak by Victor? What other villains would you like to see resurface? May fans are at the edge of their seat with the assumption of Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roché) returning as either Fluke (Tony Geary), and/or Levi’s (Zachary Garred) father. What do you think?

Maxie and Lulu: What Will Happen with Levi’s Hostages?

At the end of a very dramatic episode of General Hospital on August 14th, it was revealed that Levi Dunkleman is indeed a dangerous conman. He has been working Maxie to get closer to Felicia’s priceless Aztec jewels. His Australian accent that he has been sporting since he arrived in Port Charles has been a fake this entire time. Just as Maxie and Levi were about to say I do, his plan was foiled when Dante and Nathan busted up the ceremony and exposed Dunkleman for the scheming slime he really is.

As much as Dante and Nathan tried, they just couldn’t diffuse the situation. Levi had Maxie at gunpoint, and just as Dante stepped in to aid Nathan in taking Dunkleman down, Levi’s immigration officer surprised us all as he grabbed Lulu at gunpoint. He and Levi are accomplices and managed leave with best friends, Maxie and Lulu as their hostages. Nathan said to Maxie, “I will find you!” Even though PCPD Detectives Falconeri and West were unable to get their ladies out of the hostage situation, they have every intention of doing whatever it takes to get them home to their families safely.

In recent General Hospital rumors, it has been said that Levi pays a visit to Victor Cassadine. Will Lulu be reacquainted with Stavros Cassadine? What business might Levi and Victor have together? Does this situation have a connection with the Fluke story? Levi is definitely in Port Charles for more than some Aztec jewels!

Leave a comment and let us know where you think this story will lead.

Who is Levi Dunkleman’s Father?

There has to be a deeper, more dramatic reason for Levi to be in Port Charles than Maxie and Felicia’s priceless Aztec jewels. Perhaps his extreme skills of manipulation and scheming is a lovely trait passed down from a previous generation.

In a recent interview with Michael Fairman, Zachary Garred touched on the possibility of being connected to Port Charles by his biological Father. Michael Fairman asked, “So, Mac Scorpio (John J. York) really despises Levi!  He has had him pegged from the beginning.  What if turns out that Mac is really Levi’s father?  Oh, the irony!” In response, actor Zachary Garred said, “Oh!  If I could wish to be the son of somebody it would be John J. York (Mac) who is wearing a white pink checkerboard sort of golf pants right in front of us! I love him.  Actually, that is the kind of guy I would like to have as my dad.” He later continued on to say that he is the son of someone in PC, but cannot say who.

Zachary warns that along with Levi’s new haircut also comes some new behavior.

The Most Hated Man on General Hospital

Throughout General Hospital’s 51 years of existence, there have been many types of characters to leave their mark in Port Charles and in the hearts and minds of the fans. Whether they have left lasting impressions or simply passed on through, there are definitely certain characters that can never be forgotten.

It’s actually difficult to remember the last time a fan reaction to a new character has been this strong. No matter which form of social media you have stumbled upon, the fans are all in an uproar about one thing. From Instagram to Facebook, from Twitter to Tumblr, fans across the board seem to share the same opinion on these two words… Levi Dunkleman. Dunkleman is being shredded to pieces by GH fans of all ages.

Look what the cat dragged in… Maxie Jones went on her self discovery retreat after she lost custody of her baby girl, Georgie. Maxie was broken. She had just lost her best friends Dante and Lulu after agreeing to be their surrogate and lying by letting them believe the baby she was carrying was actually theirs. It turned out that the baby girl Maxie was supposed to be carrying for Dante and Lulu was actually a precious miracle she and Spinelli created on New Years Eve. Maxie didn’t want to hurt her friends and tell them she wasn’t pregnant with their child. She decided to be selfless and give up her own daughter to give to her best friend. When her plan unfolded, Maxie was lost. She lost her great love Spinelli to Ellie, Dante and Lulu, and the custody of Georgie to Spinelli. She was in a dark place and when she left she was vulnerable and convinced that she needed to become a better person. She met Levi and let him into her life. He has basically brainwashed her into thinking exactly the way he does. He has manipulated her out of being with her daughter among other ways of life that the Maxie we used to know would never be a part of.

Recently, Michael Fairman interviewed Zachary Garred on “Playing the Most Despised Man on General Hospital…Levi Dunkleman.” In the interview Fairman caught up with the Australian-American actor and found out his thoughts on playing such a hated character and what he thinks of the negative feedback. Garred disclosed that when he was cast to play the role of Levi Dunkleman, executive producer Frank Valentini warned him not to play the “cliche hippie angle because it’s already there.”

Zachary had some great insight on fan reactions to Levi Dunkleman, he told Michael Fairman, ” When I started acting I think I was like 15 or 16 years old when I had just my first audition. The response you generally want to get is that you just want people to have an opinion on the character, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s good or bad.  If everyone liked the characters … you wouldn’t have some of the greatest movies in history!” Obviously Zachary Garred is portraying Levi Dunkleman EXACTLY as he should. We all love to hate this character which means the actor is going his job with passion, emotion, and putting his whole self into the role.

Garred also tells Michael Fairman that he was not told exactly what type of character he was going to be playing when he was cast in the role of Levi Dunkleman. He said that all Frank Valentini said to him was not to play cliche. He mentioned that Head Writer, Ron Carlivati gives him great material and that working opposite “the gorgeous genetically spectacular Nathan (Ryan Paevey),” really works for the character. Nathan is supposed to be this Knight in Shining Armor type while Levi is this underhanded manipulative snake. When these two are constantly being pinned against each other, it helps the Levi character’s true colors shine.

He also went on to joke about Maxie’s apartment being hashtag “shirt off apartment” and that his first scene was Levi coming out in a towel!

Zachary had great things to say about his co-star, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones). When Michael Fairman asked Garred how it is to work with Kirsten, Garred responded, “She is a gem! The thing about Kirsten is: for someone her age she has so much experience in this industry, and as actress so many mediums.  I am very lucky to have been paired up with Kirsten and Ryan in story, and Ryan was fairly new to the show when I came on too.  So we are so lucky because the fans love of Maxie, and Kirsten is such a beautiful, sweet, funny person. We all get along like a house on fire away from work.  We hang out at Kirsten’s place with her and Brandon Barash and their daughter Harper as well.   So to have the camaraderie as well off-screen it helps at work.”

We want to know what YOU think about Levi! Do you love to hate him, or just hate him? Regardless, it’s apparent that Zachary Garred is going is job due to the fact that fan reactions are pretty much unanimous. Will there ever be room for Levi in Port Charles or should he still be deported back to Australia?

Dunkleman’s Got a Gun!

 

 

 

 

 

Get ready for some crazy drama the day of Maxie and Levi’s wedding! Mac and Nathan both wish Levi would get deported and get as far away from Maxie as possible. Instead, they may have to stand there and watch as he and Maxie get married so that Levi doesn’t have to leave the country.

Shots are fired the day of Maxie and Levi’s wedding. Will Maxie see Levi for the manipulative slime ball he really is?

Who do you think will be at the receiving end of that gun? Is Levi aiming at Mac, Nathan, or someone else entirely?

Hidden Spoiler Behind Fluke’s Contact Number

 

Well, well, well, what do we have here? It’s been quite a while since we have seen Luke Spencer’s face on our TV screens. Although, we know the man behind our beloved Luke’s face isn’t actually Luke. This ongoing mystery is probably the biggest and most suspenseful piece of information to be withheld from the audience. General Hospital fans are just dying to know the true identify of the fake Luke Spencer, AKA, Fluke. On Thursday’s episode of GH, Julian Jerome had a video chat conversation with his boss. The recent “message” that was sent to Julian in the form of a bomb has Julian out for blood. Julian wants nothing more to be out of the mob business and to start a life with Alexis. Fluke told Julian that if he can give him the information he needs on Sonny, they will have a truce.

Did anyone notice how a lot of attention was placed on Fluke’s video chat contact number? That number read 13-107. Could this be a secret code to Fluke’s true identity? Apparently the word out on the street (in our case it’s GH fan sites and Facebook groups), is that 13-107 (that’s Fluke’s contact number), will lead you straight to …

 

 

 

Jerry Jacks!

Try typing General Hospital 1-31-07 into YouTube and you will see what shows up. You will discover a huge clue in the GH episode regarding Fluke’s identity.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, and we won’t actually find out who is behind the Fluke identity until at least October, when Tony Geary returns from his medical leave. We strongly believe that Fluke could be Jerry Jacks. Please refer to our previous article involving the potential connection between Jerry Jacks, Luke Spencer, and Levi Dunkleman. You can find that article by clicking HERE.

 

In the words of Julian Jerome to Fluke, “Peace out, bitch!”

Who Called Immigration on Dunkleman?

It would be Mac and Nathan’s wildest dream for the Department of Immigration to come knocking on Levi Dunkleman’s (Zachary Garred) door to whisk him away to a land far, far away. Levi Dunkleman is from Australia and came to Port Charles with Maxie after they met on her personal eat, pray, love retreat. After losing custody of her baby girl, Georgie, Maxie felt she needed time to heal. It’s clear to those around her that Levi found Maxie at a vulnerable state and is manipulating and taking advantage of her. She defends him to Mac, Nathan, Lulu and anyone else that is trying to get her to see the light.

Levi is in the US on an expired Visa and he, Maxie, Nathan, and since Nathan told Dante, the four of them are the only ones who know this information. So who called immigration and is Dunkleman really getting deported? It doesn’t seem like Nathan because he told Maxie he would keep their secret, and we all know how he feels about Maxie.  It technically could have been Dante, since Nathan disclosed the situation to him at the PCPD, but it’s doubtful. It has been rumored that Levi called immigration on himself in order for Maxie to blame Nathan. Upcoming spoilers reveal that there is strong evidence against Nathan regarding Levi’s visa.  It’s obvious that Levi is trying to drive a wedge between Maxie and Nathan and what a better way to do it other than making Maxie think Nathan went against his word? Perhaps this will persuade Maxie into marrying Levi in order to keep him in the country.

Do you think Maxie will go through with marrying Levi in order to keep him in the US?

Will There Be Wedding Bells in Port Charles?

It seems like it’s been a while since anyone has gotten married in the busy town of Port Charles. Patrick and Sabrina may be the latest wedding but they technically didn’t even get married. Timing is a bit overdue and fans are looking forward to seeing their favorite couples dive in to wedded bliss. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case when in Port Charles. People marry for all sorts of reasons, including protection against the law, like when Jason married Brenda in order to avoid testifying in court. Or when Jax married Alexis and Ned married Chloe just to name a few.

So what will it be this time? Will Maxie Jones marry Aussie Levi Dunkleman? Rumor has it that Levi will be facing deportation due to an expired or non existent visa. Maxie is hell bent on blaming Nathan for setting the deportation in motion. Will she self destruct and choose to blindly disregard Nathan’s concerns? Perhaps she will marry Levi in order to keep him in the country. Levi seems to have quite a hold on Maxie’s thought process. It is very possible that he will play his little mind games and convince her that the two should wed.

We all hope Maxie wakes up and sees Levi for the deceitful, manipulative little control freak he really is. She really needs to surrender to her knight in shining armor, aka, Detective Nathan West.

Share this post if you don’t want Maxie to marry Levi Dunkleman. We don’t want a Maxie Dunkleman!

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.”
