Nature vs. Nurture: GH

On Monday's General Hospital Olivia finally tried to tell Sonny the truth about Dante. And of course Sonny thought she was just trying to complain about Claudia, which prompted Michael to interrupt and come to Claudia's defense. I have to say that this was the first day that one of Michael's outbursts actually annoyed me. He has already been having memories of Claudia admitting to being responsible for his shooting and I cannot believe that he would be so easily manipulated by her that he would completely disregard all of that. Perhaps Alexis and Olivia have been right all of these years in keeping their kids away from Sonny because it seems like his naiveté has transferred to Michael. Meanwhile, Claudia was in her hotel room trying to force Dante into sleeping with her by threatening Olivia. Surprisingly enough Dante turned her down and walked out of the room, making another sound argument for nurture over nature.

Later on Olivia was summoned by Anthony so he could determine whether he should have her killed for her involvement with Johnny. Anthony thought that perhaps Olivia was too much of a distraction for Johnny...as if Claudia isn't a bigger distraction. The Zacchara family has started creeping me out, even more so than usual, with their unwillingness to let Johnny have a girlfriend. It is as if Johnny is the only mobster in town to be involved in a relationship that didn't require a contract or an arranged marriage. This is just one more reason he and Olivia should continue their relationship in private because as long as he has family nearby he will never be able to be involved with anyone.

Elsewhere in Port Charles, Helena continued her mind games from her hospital bed, as Elizabeth and Nikolas contemplated their next move. Ultimately Elizabeth decided that she could no longer lie to Lucky about wanting to marry him, but determined that she could not be with Nikolas either. This decision was obviously made in an effort to avoid actually dealing with the fact that she slept with Nikolas. If Elizabeth simply cancels her wedding she can just tell Lucky that she is not ready to marry him again after everything that has happened between them. Then there are no hard feelings, they can each go their separate ways, and she never has to tell him about Nikolas. And of course at some point this would leave Elizabeth and Nikolas free to resume their affair without worrying so much about hurting Lucky. Unfortunately for Elizabeth things are about to become much more complicated than that because in the same moment she decided to talk to Lucky about cancelling their wedding, he surprised her with an engagment party.

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. 

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.
