What Love Is: GH

The wait was finally over on Monday's General Hospital as Spixie fans finally got to see what happened after Spinelli told Maxie that he could not marry her. After Friday's episode, many fans, including myself, speculated that Maxie had changed her mind about marrying Spinelli and that the couple might actually tie the knot after all. This, however, did not happen. Instead the two declared their love for one another but concluded that this was not the right time for them to get married. This was a little disappointing, but in retrospect it was for the best because they would not have been getting married for the right reasons. Obviously they love each other, but this was not the primary motivation for their trip down the aisle. It was the fact that they were afraid of losing each other.

The failed nuptials came as a relief for Mac who passed out with a smile on his face upon realizing that the wedding had indeed been called off. And while Spixie may not have actually gotten married, they still exchanged vows and celebrated many other traditions usually reserved for successful weddings. They even received congratulations from their guests as they were pelted with bird seed. The celebration continued at the "non-wedding" reception at Jake's, where Robin arranged for Spixie to be serenaded by the wedding guests to Foreigner's ballad "I Want to Know What Love Is."

As it turned out Spixie's serenade was only the beginning of the celebration as many of the guests decided to take turns onstage for the second round of karaoke at Jake's. Ethan got things started by performing INXS's "I Need You Tonight." And while he received a lot of attention for his rendition, no one was more mesmerized than Kristina, who clearly has a crush on him, despite her controlling boyfriend Kiefer.

Later on Molly convinced Morgan to join her onstage to sing the classic Jackson 5 song "ABC." Their performance inspired the entire audience to join in dancing, including Alexis who allowed herself to have fun for the first time the entire night. Surprisingly, the one person who never had any trouble having fun at the reception was Mac, who performed The Village People's "Macho Man" with Patrick and Coleman. This performance even managed to win Coleman an unlikely admirer in Kate Howard, who had been the target of Coleman's advances all night. Spixie's 'non-wedding' certainly seemed to bring out a different side of Kate's personality because she was relaxed from the moment she arrived at the reception. It will be interesting to see if this new persona continues and if it will involve more interactions with Coleman.

While Spixie may not have pulled off a successful wedding, no one can argue with the success of their reception. In fact I have never seen wedding guests so happy about a wedding being cancelled. Spixie's happiness did not even seem to be hindered by the day's events as their reception came to a close and they shared a 'non-wedding' dance the moment everyone left. Spinelli even serenaded his fair Maximista with "I Want to Know What Love Is," the song that has somehow become their song.

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.
