Miss Diagnosis: GH

Like many of you I have thoroughly enjoyed Lisa's descent into madness. Of course now that Patrick has found Robin, and Lisa has essentially laid all her cards on the table, this storyline will have to come to some sort of conclusion. First of all, someone will likely get shot so hopefully Steve will make his way to the cabin where he can help out the injured party, assuming no one gets killed. If, in fact, someone does get shot I hope it is Lisa, but not for the reasons you might think.





If Lisa gets shot, accidentally of course while she and Patrick are fighting over the gun, the bullet may hit her in the head. Since she is a soap character a bullet in the head will not necessarily be fatal, just ask DOOL's E.J. Dimera. If he can be shot in the head and make it through a whole night without medical attention, then Lisa should be fine with three doctors surrounding her immediately after it happens. Of course Lisa's subsequent surgery to remove the bullet will be a tricky one and will require the best possible neurosurgeon to perform it, which is where Patrick comes in. Patrick will be forced to perform the surgery to save her life, but in the process learns the reason behind her instability, a tumor or some sort of growth located on her frontal lobe. This would explain all of Lisa's bizarre behavior, including why she waited so many years to reveal her obsession for Patrick. In addition it would keep Brianna Brown on the show for the foreseeable future and by extension keep Lisa in Patrick and Robin's orbit for a while longer. Not to mention it may create a plausible excuse for a trip back to crazy town later on. That would certainly be preferable to Lisa being thrown in jail, sent to a mental institution, or worst of all...killed.

    Okay I didn't have time to watch GH yesterday but after reading your post I got right back to kitty and t.v. Sure, a tumor would explain things but I hope that Lisa doesn't shoot Patrick because like hey is anyone noticing Robin hasn't taken her HIV meds? Shouldn't he have grabbed some just in case before he started looking for her? Come on writers. Lisa having a tumor would be a little more creative than the regular loony-tune mental institution path that's been done too many times on GH.

    Personally, I just can't wait until Claire Walsh gets pregnant and drops Sonny. That is the purpose, right?

  2. Hi Peggy!

    Honestly I don't know what the deal is with Claire and Sonny. To me they're just icky together and I hate seeing them on my screen. I don't know if she still has baby fever or if she really has some formed some sort of attachment with him. It baffles me that he knew she wanted to get pregnant in the beginning though and he slept with her anyway. I'm sure they're using protection, but so were he and Claudia when she decided to poke holes in the condoms!

  3. Paula,

    It would have been nice if they had showed a scene where we could see how Patrick got Robin out of the well, and there seems to be some sort of continuity issue with Lisa's arrival but anyway I can't wait for Monday's episode.

    I've been slow-forwarding through Sonny/Claire just in case I like miss anything. Nice to know that Claire can spell, eh?

  4. Hi Peggy!

    Yeah I wondered about how Patrick got her out of the well too. I guess they couldn't figure out a way to shoot that scene. Maybe Robin was able to climb halfway up, then Patrick leaned down and pulled her the rest of the way up. That's how I pictured it anyway.

    LOL, about the Claire thing. When she typed that stuff in on the computer and Sonny was like how did you do that, I thought doesn't anyone besides Spinelli know how to use the computer? For crying out loud they call him everytime they need to do a simple google search! lol!

  5. Paula,

    Have we ever seen Sonny use anything technological other than his cellphone? Other than that, we all know how difficult it is to chew gum and google at the same time so this rules out a lot of characters on GH, eh? With all due respect, of course ;)

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.
