In the Open: GH

After watching Thursday's General Hospital it is clear that the lives of those in Port Charles will never be the same. This show is taking so many twists and turns right now that literally anything can happen. And Thursday's episode provided the perfect example of this as one by one everyone's secrets were exposed.


At the carnival, Claudia continued to look for Kristina, who had apparently lost consciousness when the ride fell apart. At one point she managed to regain consciousness in time to see someone in heels walking away from her, unaware that it was Claudia. Then Michael showed up to try to find her himself while Claudia went to the hospital to let everyone know that she still had not been found. Moments later Michael arrived with Kristina, whose only injury was a mild sprain. After she was examined she told Michael that she thought someone else had found her before he did, but they walked away. This piece of information may ultimately mean the difference between life and death for Claudia, because earlier that night Michael started remembering Claudia apologizing to him while he was in the coma. Furthermore, Kristina spotted Claudia's shoes as she was leaving the hospital and recognized them as the same pair she saw while she was trapped under the ride. Ironically enough Claudia may not have intentionally walked away from Kristina at the carnival, but once Michael puts the pieces of his shooting together it may not matter.


Meanwhile, other secrets were making their way out into the open. Olivia found out that Dante might need a kidney transplant, prompting her to sneak into his room to see him. While she was in there, Patrick overheard her refer to Dante as her son, a pivotal moment considering that he and Sonny had been trying to track down family members who could donate a kidney. And by the end of the episode it looked as though Olivia might finally tell Sonny the truth. And while it is certainly time for the truth to come out something will likely happen to interrupt Olivia before that can happen. I just cannot imagine Sonny finding out about Dante this easily after months of Olivia keeping that information from him. Instead, I think the truth will likely stay hidden until Dante is in critical condition.

Elsewhere in the hospital, Mac was trying to figure out why Edward drove through the carnival. Apparently no one gave much thought to the fact that he had had a heart attack, causing him to lose control of the car. Even Jason was quick to assume that Edward had been drinking and the heart attack likely happened later on. And while I understand this assumption given the Quartermaine history, it would have certainly been more beneficial to look at all the facts before reaching this conclusion. And considering that Mac is a detective he should know that. Fortunately Robin thought to look in Andrea's purse, something that was in Mac's possession the day before. I guess in Port Charles it is not procedure to examine the personal effects of the deceased. Had Mac taken a moment to do this, he might have discovered what Robin did, the drug that was used to poison Edward just before his accident.

Meanwhile, Nikolas had just been informed about Jake, prompting him to rush to Elizabeth's side where the two starting kissing outside Jake's hospital room. And as this area undoubtedly offers little privacy, Jason spotted them as he was coming around the corner. While I hate that Elizabeth is going to break Lucky's heart again, I think this plot twist is just what the show needed. Elizabeth and Lucky became kind of boring after they reunited, and were rarely ever seen by viewers. And Nikolas has been fixated on Emily for far too long, so this storyline gives him a chance to move on and provides more opportunities for viewers to see Lucky and Elizabeth.

  1. I was just curious as to why they played "Moonlight Sonata" at the beginning of the show when they did a montage of the previous two days. Perhaps something by Mozart would have been more appropriate? It was a tad bit distracting (and sad) for me because this was the one song my late dad was forever trying to teach me on the piano.

  2. Hi garbskye! First of all let me say that I am sorry for your loss and for the fact that you had to be reminded of that loss while watching GH. Soaps should be an escape, but when they are not they become difficult to watch.

    I am not sure why they chose that particular song for the opening montage. For me the montage itself was a bit long. The editing was creative and for someone who perhaps wasn't caught up it provided a nice recap so that everyone could be on the same page. However, I am sure most people, like me, who had been watching all week were just ready to get on with the storyline at that point.

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.
