In Too Deep: GH

I am beginning to have serious doubts about Dante's abilities as a detective. In fact I am beginning to think that the only reason he was ever promoted to detective is because his superior, Ronnie, is actually a criminal and knew Dante would never suspect criminal activity. Not only has Dante not been able to figure out that his boss is obviously a crook, but he blindly accepted orders from him to blame the leak in the Corinthos organization on an innocent person. I understand that Ronnie alluded to the fact that Olivia could be in danger if Dante did not do this, but does Dante not find it the least bit suspicious that Ronnie is so careless when it comes to protecting his identity? Moreover, when Ronnie told him to blame the leak on someone else, Dante should have known how Sonny would want to handle that situation. Instead, Dante actually looked shocked that Sonny ordered him to kill Tommy, the person "responsible" for the leak. One would think that since Dante is investigating Sonny this type of order would not come as a complete surprise to him. One would also think that Dante would have a back-up plan already in place for situations where he might be given this type of order. After all he did infiltrate the mob, shouldn't he better equipped to deal with criminal activity? It should have been obvious to him that if he ever gained Sonny's trust, he would eventually be asked to kill someone.


As a detective, Dante just seems a little ill-prepared for this assignment. This was made even more evident on Monday's General Hospital when he frantically searched for excuses not to kill Tommy. This is where a good back-up plan would have been useful. Instead Dante agreed to do what he was asked, but at that point he had already raised Sonny's suspicions. As a result, Sonny told Jason to follow Dante to make sure he followed through with his orders to kill Tommy. This is also something that should have come as no surprise to Dante. He is a new employee in the Corinthos organization and he did come over from a rival family. Why wouldn't Sonny instruct Jason to keep an eye on him? Apparently this never occurred to Dante either because when he took Tommy out in the middle of nowhere to "kill" him, he told him that he was an undercover cop and wanted him to testify against the Corinthos and Zacchara organizations. Of course Tommy didn't believe him. And as Monday's episode ended it looked as though Dante might have to pull out his badge to provide proof, which may not have been a problem if Jason wasn't nearby. Hmmm, so Dante trusts the wrong people, acts on impulse, and never has a plan B. I am amazed that it took Claudia this long to discover that Dante is Sonny and Olivia's son!

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.
