Couples Cornered: GH

The moment that JaSam fans have been waiting for, and Liason fans have been dreading, finally arrived on Monday's GH. Of course I am talking about the kiss that was shared between Jason and Sam at the end of the episode. I have to say that I was somewhat surprised by the way the kiss happened. Even though everyone knew for weeks this was coming, it still seemed to come out of nowhere. I think that GH could have used another day or two of awkward JaSam moments before the kiss finally happened, at the very least that would have given Jason more time to heal. This storyline portrayed him as being far too injured for him to heal that fast and I thought his speedy recovery took away some of the realism of the scenes. Perhaps that is the reason why the JaSam kiss felt a little too rushed. I was prepared for a longer build up than what was presented. Having said that, the JaSam reunion itself was long overdue, especially given the fact that the Liason saga failed to deliver any real storyline for any of the actors involved.

One potential couple we won't have to worry about delivering storyline is Nikolas and Elizabeth, who just can't seem to stay away from each other. This was paricularly clear on Monday when they started kissing on Elizabeth's porch, giving no thought to what would happen if Lucky returned with the boys, or if the neighbors saw what they were doing. I am sure it is only a matter of time before something more happens between the two, and Lucky finds out, but in the meantime Rebecca is still in the picture. After Nikolas left Elizabeth's he went to see Rebecca, seemingly offering her a chance at reconciliation. It is difficult to say whether Nikolas was being sincere about this possibilty or if he is just using that as a way of getting revenge for the way she hurt him. Then there is a third possibility that he is simply using Rebecca because he cannot have Elizabeth. No matter what his intentions are, Rebecca will inevitably get hurt.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic.
