In the Air: GH

Port Charles's fun-filled day at the carnival came to an abrupt end on Tuesday's General Hospital. For weeks viewers have been waiting for September 8th, in anticipation of this highly promoted carnival event. And in those last few nail-biting moments of Tuesday's episode, it is unlikely that any GH fan was disappointed.

On Friday, viewers watched as Edward drank a tainted martini, provided by Andrea Floyd. And on Tuesday Robin and Patrick showed up at the Metro Court just in time to see him finish it. Once there, Robin tried unsuccessfully to warn Edward about Andrea, unaware that the damage had already been done.

Meanwhile at the carnival, most people were so preoccupied that they could not foresee the danger that was about to befall them. In fact, much of this episode contained many of the light-hearted elements that existed in Friday's episode. Sam decided to drop her investigation after finding out that the woman she was investigating was meeting Edward. As a result she and Jason decided to attend the carnival together after all. While there, she asked Jason to win her a stuffed animal at Coleman's presumably rigged shooting booth. After several failed attempts at hitting the target with the fake carnival guns, Jason pulled out his real gun, prompting Coleman to just give them the prize. Elsewhere, Olivia and Sonny were sharing some nice couple moments of their own as they walked around the carnival, reminiscing about their days at Coney Island. Even Dante and Lulu seemed to be hitting it off as they made small talk amidst all the festivities. But as the saying goes "all good things must come to an end." And come to an end they did as Dante received a phone call ordering him to go to the warehouse, and Anthony's plans for a takeover were set into motion.

Moments after Dante's phone rang, Johnny walked up to Lulu to say hello. He then offered to go to the warehouse in Dante's place so that Lulu's impromptu date would not have to be interrupted. Elsewhere, Maxie was busy taking off Spinelli's clown makeup, acting as though she had fallen in love with him all over again, when he receives a call from Bernie directing him to the warehouse. Meanwhile Edward had just gotten in his car to drive to the carnival, but it was clear that the drug Andrea supplied him with was already taking its toll, making it impossible for him to drive safely. What happened next was a sea of chaos as a perfect storm of events collided, with the potential to affect everyone in Port Charles.

While Johnny was presumably making his way to the warehouse, Spinelli had already arrived and was met with an army of Anthony's gunmen. At this point the paperwork that Spinelli was carrying went flying through the air just as these gunmen opened fire. It would appear from watching this scene that either Spinelli was shot or fell backward in an amply timed moment of clumsiness. However, I choose to believe that Johnny pulled Spinelli directly out of the line of fire, causing the papers to go flying through the air just prior to the eruption of gunfire. If this is true one can only hope that Johnny somehow managed to get them both to safety.

Back at the carnival, Jake wandered away from Elizabeth's watchful eye as Jason looked on. This happened just as Edward lost consciousness, causing his car to go barrelling down the carnival midway. Several passersby, including Max, who was trying to push the ADA out of the way, appeared to either get hit or narrowly escape getting hit by Edward's car. Moments later, with Dante standing nearby, Edward's car seemed to be headed in Morgan's immediate direction.

I think it could be considered common knowledge at this point that Dante gets hit while trying to save Morgan, causing him to need a kidney transplant. This will undoubtedly force Olivia to finally open up to Sonny about their son, as he is likely the best donor match for Dante. What is not yet clear is what happens to Jake at the carnival or what becomes of Johnny and Spinelli at the warehouse, or if there are still unforeseen dangers lurking just around the corner.

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.
