Fun at the Carnival: GH

The much anticipated carnival finally got underway on Friday's General Hospital and a good time was had by all, despite the proverbial dark cloud overhead. Spinelli continued to face his fears by showing up at the carnival dressed as a clown, hoping to bring happiness to those around him. And considering that he somehow managed to bring a smile to Sonny's face I would say his fear is all but conquered.

Aside from clowns, the carnival also featured what they referred to as a dunk-a-hunk, more commonly known as a dunking booth. Some of the best scenes of Friday's episode took place inside the tent of the dunk-a-hunk, where Patrick, Dante, Johnny, and Ethan took turns inside the booth. As it turned out Molly was the only one able to dunk any of them after several failed attempts by Robin, Lulu, Matt, the ADA, and Max. Speaking of Max, I noticed a little spark between him and the ADA, who of course is Diane's presumably unfashionable arch nemesis. This leads me to wonder if Diane is going to receive a little competition for Max now, especially considering that he just told her he doesn't feel like she values him anymore.

Another common attraction at the carnival was the fortune teller, who predicted danger for Kristina. This served as an ominous, yet vague warning to her considering that danger could come into her life from any direction at this point. Obviously there are several things that are going to happen at this carnival which could pose a threat to her, but there are other things more specific to her own life that may pose an even greater threat. First of all there is Kiefer, who she secretly met up with at the carnival. He is the easiest threat to see because he is abusive and has been able to hide this from those closest to Kristina. Then there is Claudia, who I still do not trust. Maybe it is just me but I still think she is trying to come up with a way of paying Kristina back for her baby's death. What is so ironic about this is that Claudia is probably the best person Kristina could talk to about abuse, given the environment she grew up in.

Outside of the carnival, at the Metro Court's carnival kick-off party, Andrea made several failed attempts at poisoning Edward, until she was finally successful by the end of the episode. Robin, who already suspected that Andrea might try to harm Edward, planned to talk to him about the possibility that he witnessed something the day Brianna Hughes died. Unfortunately for Edward, Patrick insisted on spending some alone time with Robin which kept her from getting to the Metro Court before Edward drank his poison cocktail. To this I just have to quote Sam when she said, in reference to her investigations, "Why does everything always have to be about sex?"


  1. Thanks for the recap on Friday's episode. I tried to watch it on Soapnet after work, but fell asleep. Can't wait till Tuesday!

  2. Hi Paula! You are most definitely welcome for the recap and thanks for commenting. I am also excited to see how this will all unfold. Very few soaps do suspense the way that GH does!

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

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.
