Great Cesar's Ghost: GH

I think we all knew after last Friday's episode that Duke was really Cesar Faison, even those of us who weren't watching GH the last time he wreaked havoc in Port Charles. It made perfect sense that a supervillain would be holding Robin captive. How else would one explain her surviving that explosion? Only a supervillain could pull that off; and only a supervillain could make the idea of someone passing themselves off as someone else by wearing a latex mask seem plausible. I'm a little irritated that Anna didn't pick up on the fact that she was kissing someone with a rubber face, but I'm willing to let go of that for now because this reveal answered a lot of lingering questions about why "Duke" would be holding Robin captive. I had all but resigned myself to the fact that the writers must have been making things up as they went along, with little or no regard for the show's history. I am pleased that was not the case and that GH's history is actually being honored, respected, and in a sense, celebrated. I'm also excited that GH finally has a story involving a supervillain (and no, rival mobsters and Lisa Niles don't count) because this opens up the whole canvas to a multitude of possibilities, particularly since we know the real Duke is actually alive. It makes me wonder who else Faison might be holding in his makeshift mental hospital...Georgie? Emily? Claudia? A not so baby Jake? The possibilities are endless and I for one hope the writers really make the most out of Faison's return. In some ways I actually find this storyline more believable than Patrick showing any interest at all in Dr. Britt, especially after seeing how horribly she treats Sabrina and how snarky she was about the Nurses' Ball. Prior to Lisa Niles, this is exactly the type of woman Patrick would have gone for, but I like to think he has learned a little something since then. I guess I'm giving him too much credit though because it would not surprise me at all if Lisa had purchased herself a Britt mask in order to have another shot at Patrick. For all we know she may be working for Faison so she can keep Patrick from finding out the truth about Robin.

  1. I thought the EXACT same thing about Anna and the rubber mask!! Haha! How we think alike, Paula! I also totally agree about Patrick with Britt. He saw how rude she was to Sabrina. I just don't believe Patrick post-Robin would be with someone like Britt. I like the Lisa Niles in a mask theory, though. That's out-of-the-box thinking! Good post!

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!

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.
