On Target: GH

Everything seemed to start coming together on Friday's General Hospital. Jax finally did something right when he told Carly he knew where Michael and Kristina were and was flying to Mexico to bring them home. He even managed to leave Spinelli's name out of this conversation. Meanwhile Jason and Sam had already found Michael and Kristina, who were in the middle of trying to defend themselves against the obnoxious customers that had shown up at the resort. Michael had already been punched because he pawned a watch that belonged to one of these customers in order to pay for Kristina's plane ticket. When Jason arrived he was forced to pull out his gun to keep the fight from escalating and to allow Michael a chance to explain what happened. When Michael told him how he had pawned the watch Jason reimbursed the customer and let him and his girlfriend go. He and Sam then proceeded to make arrangements to bring Michael and Kristina home, but Michael had other plans.

While Jax and Carly were at the country club preparing for Jax to leave, Carly received a phone call from Jason informing her that he had found Michael. Unfortunately Carly's good news was overshadowed by the fact that Kiefer was nearby taking in everything that was happening. He even managed to pull an unsuspecting Molly aside to question her about what was going on with Kristina. Morgan pulled her away before she could answer any of his questions, which obviously did not deter Kiefer because he showed up later at Jax and Carly's house. While there he learned that Kristina was on her way home, which prompted him to call her and leave a message on her cell phone.

Kiefer's behavior throughout this storyline has been inconsistent to say the least. I know he is an unbalanced character, but it seems to me that if he was going to be written as the abusive, controlling boyfriend, he would have been more determined to find Kristina as soon as she left. I just do not buy the fact that he would be sitting at home all summer, periodically bullying Kristina's siblings about her return. If GH really wanted to play him up as the abuser I believe him to be I think he would have not only been bullying Morgan and Molly, but other family members as well, and on a much more regular basis. I also think he would have been traveling around actually looking for Kristina instead of lounging by the pool.

Unfortunately now that Kristina is coming home she is going to have a lot more to deal with than Kiefer because Claudia overheard Alexis and Sonny talking about Kristina being responsible for her accident. After Claudia called Jerry to track down Michael when she thought he caused her accident, I do not foresee her cutting Kristina any slack. This may very well be foreshadowing the Carnival tragedy that is supposed to begin next month where someone in Port Charles is apparently killed. On the other hand, Andrea Floyd seems to be plotting murder of a different kind. She overheard Robin and Alexis talking about the possibility of her guilt in the death of Brianna Hughes, the mayor's mistress. Patrick caught her listening to this conversation outside Alexis's office, forcing her to make her presence known. She then confronted Robin about her constant allegations toward her, and left the room with an ominous warning for her to back off. She was later seen at her computer researching poisons, then returned to Alexis's empty office.

Friday's GH certainly seemed to provide a frame for upcoming events. Many of the storylines that have been building for months seem to be unraveling. Viewers are likely to find out soon what Andrea Floyd is really up to, especially since portrayer Martha Byrne is about to finish her stint on the show. Then there is the mystery of who ran Claudia off the road. This may also be solved soon, but I think it will take a bit longer to straighten out than the Brianna Hughes case. I am beginning to think that Kiefer is somehow involved in Claudia's accident. If I am right it may take a while to prove that because both Kristina and Molly are enamored by him.

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.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

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. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
