The First Step: GH

Ever since Michael got attacked in prison there was little doubt that he was actually raped. The only uncertainty, it seemed, was whether this would ever be acknowledged by any of the characters. Now that Michael has taken the brave first step of letting people know what happened to him, the question now is what effect will this have on the rest of the characters and storylines? This revelation is most certainly a pivotal moment for GH because the fallout has the potential to either make or break the show.


Fellow soap blogger Silas Kain at Soapbox1 discusses the possible ways in which GH could address Michael's rape in a new blog post titled "This is your moment, Michael Corinthos." In this post Silas also discusses what the possible ramifications could be for other core characters if this storyline unfolds the way it should.

  1. Paula,

    Let's hope, now that this storyline is so important and way more exciting than Brenda and Sonny's wedding, that GH writers don't just let it die an unnatural death.

    It would be nice if Carly would like, grow up or something.

  2. Silas Kain's blog was absolutely stellar. It was so of staggering remembering the connection Michael has to so many characters on GH. The potential to bring them all into play is mind bending, but who's in charge? not likely.
    We will probably see only the main characters who were responsible for Michael being placed on the road that culminated here. Carly, Sonny and Jason. I refuse to list Dante as responsible, because he IS NOT. We have seen Jason Morgan's agony & feeling of helplessness because he knows how his actions led here. Silas Kain said the love he and Michael have is "pure" and I agree. There is nothing he won't do for this young man and Michael trusts him implicitly. Watching them talk about his assault has been amazing & has burnt out my tear ducts. Watching Dante's devastating just about killed me. But there goes Carly, she had me initially while comforting her son. But then she attacks Dante. No significant responsibility taken by her for what SHE has done with Michael's life. I cannot wait to see Sonny's response.

  3. Hi Peggy!

    I'm afraid to get my hopes up that this storyline could turn out to be anything other than an offensive disappointment after what happened with the Kristina abuse storyline.

    And yes Carly needs to take it down a notch. I fear she is starting to lose her mind.

  4. Hi flacaa6!

    I completely agree. Dante is just the scapegoat for all of this. The cover-up started all of this. The show is just using the Dante character as another prop for the mob. I knew that they would never let him be Mr. all-around good guy for long. And I know that this storyline is going to turn out to be such a huge disappointment. Franco will be back at the end of the month so all the focus will probably be, like Silas said, on getting revenge on him. And it would be fine if part of the show focused on that, but that doesn't need to take center stage.

  5. Loved Silas' take on the ripple affect this storyline could have onGH. Sadly think Guza will be the one to slam the oar into the ripples like driving a speed boat in a no wake zone. Dante is def blame for sending micheal to prison everything Carly said was true he should have known. He could have had him confess through proper channels protecting micheal legally. Carly has taken blame for her part as has jason. I loved everything silas said about sonny. In my opinion Guza has fallen short even portraying mob related stories sonny and jason are too wussy real mob wouldhave just killed people like claudia.anthony franco even johnny. This could also help with budget cuts lol jus kill the ones you fire lol

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.
