Pregnant Pause: GH

Well, I was hoping GH wouldn't go there, but unfortunately they did. Of course I'm talking about Maxie being pregnant with Spinelli's baby. It's not that I'm against the idea of a Spixie baby, I just wish it had been a more plausible conception. The idea that Maxie would even sleep with anyone a few hours after miscarrying is unbelievable enough, but her getting pregnant as a result is just ludicrous! This almost makes Lucy's vampire story seem believable! I can't wait to see how Dr. Britt explains this. Speaking of Britt, is she some sort of jack-of-all-trades type physician? She's like in her 30's and not only specializes as a pediatrician, but an OBGYN, and a fertility expert - quite an overachiever!

Obviously now that Spinelli has broken Maxie's heart she will use this opportunity to try to pass off her own baby as Lulu and Dante's, which is not something Maxie would do. The old Maxie probably would have just to save her own skin, but I like to think she has grown somewhat. I'm not looking forward to how all this is going to play out, or how long it will take for everything to be resolved. I just don't think I have the patience for this particular storyline. Even the triangle between Maxie, Spinelli, and Ellie is irritating to me. Ellie has the potential to be likable and I could even see myself rooting for her and Spinelli. The problem with Ellie is that she is another one of these new, one dimensional characters GH has been forcing on us the past few months. Like Sabrina, Britt, and Felix, it's hard to care about Ellie because she lacks complexity. These are just not well-established characters and it doesn't seem like the writers are in any hurry to make them that way. Sure they have been getting a lot of screen time lately, but that just makes it all the more frustrating that we still don't really know who these people are supposed to be. At this point, we should know something about their pasts, what brought them to Port Charles, what makes them tick, and what their flaws are, but unfortunately they remain one very large question mark.

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.
