CO77X Revisited: GH

In the weeks leading up to the introduction of the Franco character on General Hospital, viewers were treated to countless montages featuring the mysterious CO77X graffiti. Since then there has been non-stop speculation about the meaning behind this tag and how it may affect the course of the show. Recently there have been fewer CO77X sightings, but there have been several episodes featuring Franco so I thought it would be a good time to revisit CO77X in an effort to unlock this mystery.

This week Jason received a painting from Franco listing the seven deadly sins of vanity, envy, gluttony, lust, wrath, greed, and sloth. Seeing this made me wonder if one of the "7's" in CO77X represents these seven deadly sins. This may seem a bit obvious, but looking back on the scene where Franco is shooting red paint balls at the pictures of people close to Jason, there are seven people on the canvas besides Jason. Taking this one step further it seems logical to assume that Franco's agenda may include manipulating the people in Jason's life to represent these seven sins, with Maxie clearly representing lust.

  1. Paula,

    Good analogy but who do you think would represent gluttony? Carly and her cheese puffs?

  2. Hi Peggy!

    LOL! Could be! I wondered if maybe he might work a different angle with gluttony and perhaps sloth. Like maybe someone could be considered a glutton for things other than food.Just a thought, I'm still trying to figure out what possible sin everyone could represent and how Franco might make them exhibit that. Any thoughts?

  3. I could only pick out Sam, Sonny, Carly, Spinelli and Maxie.

    Based on Franco's interaction with everyone so far, I can see

    Sonny = wrath
    Carly = gluttony
    Spinelli = envy
    Maxie = lust
    Sam = vanity
    ? = greed
    ? = sloth

    Sorry can't be more illuminating here.

  4. Hi Peggy!

    Michael could be wrath because of Claudia and Sonny could be greed. I'm not sure about sloth though. I'm actually not sure how I would categorize Morgan at all because he isn't on enough for me to know much about his personality. Michael could also fall under the category of envy because he idolizes Sonny. This is fun, kind of like a puzzle. lol!

  5. Paula,

    Yes, I thought of Michael as wrath when I was removing cat from lap so I could turn off the p.c. and go to bed. I've got the claw marks to prove it, too.

    So then
    Michael - Wrath
    Sonny - Greed
    Claudia - Envy
    Carly - Gluttony
    Maxie - Lust
    Sam - Vanity
    Spinelli - Sloth? Because when he wears his hair in his eyes he looks like one (and when I say that I mean in a cute, attractive, cuddly way)

  6. Hi Peggy!

    Ouch! :) LOL! I love Spinelli, but I totally get what you are saying about the sloth thing. Also if you didn't know anything about his personality and just saw him, his personal style would immediately make you think "slacker" because he has that just-rolled-out-of-bed look. lol! I also thought that Carly might fall under the sloth category too because she is so dependent on Jason. I'm still having trouble with categorizing Morgan though. Like I said they don't show him enough for me to have a firm handle on his personality. Of course I guess it depends on how someone like Franco might perceive him.

  7. Hi Paula,

    I read this post last Thursday and I thought back to it again today while watching GH when Spinelli & Maxie were looking at the painting.
    I think you're theory is really interesting and very creative. I vote Nikolas as the sloth!

  8. Hi Michele!

    Thanks for commenting and for the compliment!Yeah we should see very soon whether my theory has any merit, or if it is just the product of an overactive imagination! lol! And you are right, out of all the people in Port Charles Nikolas would definitely be considered the sloth! :)

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.
