Time Away: GH

Well, it was another successful karaoke night at Jake's on Wednesday's General Hospital. And it provided a much needed break from all the intensity that Franco has brought to the show the past few weeks. I am pleased to see that GH seems to be making this a regular event. I do not really mind the darker moments on this soap because quite frankly that is where most of the interesting storylines come from, but it is nice to have balance and the karaoke episodes do a good job of maintaining that balance without making the show boring. I especially like the way these episodes tend to highlight and accentuate some of the back-burner storylines and romances, like Max and Diane's reunion or Alexis's budding romance with Mac. And let's not forget about Spinelli's unforgettable rendition of "I Want to Know What Love Is" when he was attempting to woo his fair Maximista with courtly love. After all it was Spinelli's courtly love phase that seemed to kick-start the entire karaoke movement in Port Charles. I also like the way that General Hospital seems to be using these episodes as a way to incorporate actors who are rarely seen because of their lack of storyline, like Tracy or Ethan. Although it seems fairly obvious that something may happen between Ethan and Kristina down the road. It is a good thing soap operas like to rapidly age their young because if things keep going the way I think they are going Kristina is bound to be eighteen in a few short months. Speaking of Kristina I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge Carly coming to her rescue when Kiefer was scolding her for talking to Ethan. I am glad that someone other than Michael finally saw firsthand how Kiefer is with Kristina, it is just too bad that person wasn't Alexis. And I have to say that as much as I like the fact that Alexis finally went on a date with a decent guy it might behoove her to spend at least some of her free time with Kristina because she could clearly use some parental guidance.

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.
