"It always hurts to say good-bye," he posted. "The sting is lessened because of the time I was able to spend with all of you. Not sure when our paths will cross again, but in the meantime, my family and I extend our heartfelt thanks and blessings for all the support and kindness you showed us over the past three years.

GH Friday Recap: Silas Is Murdered!


Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL was a doozy!

Denise was still shaking from her encounter with Silas when Morgan returned. She told her boy toy that Silas threatened to tell Kiki the truth about finding them in bed together, and she was certain he'd make good on that threat. Morgan flew into a rage. Before Denise could stop him, Morgan rushed out, intent on stopping him!

Meanwhile, Nina was pleasantly surprised to see Franco in Shadybrook. He said he came because he never stopped loving her. She felt the same. Thrilled to be together again, they kissed. Franco was intent on getting her out of Shadybrook and was shocked to learn that Nina committed herself. She believed that Franco was right; that she kidnapped Avery. In fact, she was convinced that she had lost her mind because of her guilty conscience. Franco insisted that she was not the kidnapper because he knew who was -- Silas!

Franco told Nina the whole truth, everything from Silas kidnapping Avery to the fact that Ava has alive and trying to pull herself off as her long-lost look alike sister, Denise. Nina pretty much freaked out. She was furious that she continued to go to Silas for comfort, and he continued to lie to her so she'd go down for a crime that he committed! She tore out of the room in a furry.

Shortly thereafter, Franco arrived at Silas' apartment looking for Nina. The door was ajar. Franco slowly pushed it open. There, on the floor, he saw Silas in a pool of blood... and Nina kneeling above him with a giant knife in her hand!

Over at the Webber house, Elizabeth couldn't believe her ears. Laura revealed that she knew Jake was Jason and, after seeing how thrilled Monica was to realize her grandson was still alive, she deserved to know that her son was alive, too. And, as a mother, Laura was compelled to tell her! Liz begged her not to, at first just saying that Jake/Jason didn't remember anyone anyway; in the long-run it would just cause more confusion and pain for everyone.

Laura was unconvinced until Liz pulled out the heavy armor by saying that Nikolas could wind up in prison. Liz told her about Hayden and how all evidence pointed to Nikolas trying to kill her to keep her from revealing Jake's true identity. The news that her son would do that devastated Laura, but she wanted to hear it from Nikolas' lips that he had something to do with Hayden taking a bullet to the head. Again, Liz pleaded with her to not mention a word to Nik about their conversation. Moments later, Nikolas showed up at Liz's door. Laura took a deep breath and assured them both that she had decided to keep the information about Jason to herself.

Patrick told Sam the good news that Liz had decided to allow Danny and Jake to get together. Sam was, of course, thrilled. Just as she was leaving the hospital, she bumped into Jake. He told her Michael's theory that Hayden Barnes must have learned the truth about Jake from Nikolas. Sam was intrigued by the idea but wasn't sure how to prove it. Just then, Patrick stepped in with news: Hayden was awake!

Monday on GH, Morgan opens up to Sonny, Laura makes a surprising decision and Franco deals with Nina's latest conundrum! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Kin Shriner Unplugged!

KinShrinerGal.jpg This week marks a big day for GH's Kin Shriner (Scotty). Four decades in daytime is a reason to celebrate, don't you think? For the current issue of Soaps In Depth, we sat down with the fan fave and talked about his rascally alter ego's past (and future) in Port Charles... and how he still keeps Scotty fun and fresh after all these years!

"Every time you leave, you do some other new stuff, because all actors shoot for the moon," Shriner admits. "Then, when they want you to come back and be that character again, you think, 'Sure, I can pump him back to life again.' When you get there, you gotta bring it. I come to the table with game. Those actors that I work with on GH, they all have game. They sometimes don't know what to make of my game, so they're on high alert," he jokes.

"They step up to bat and go, 'I don't know what Kin's gonna do, but I'm gonna have game, too!' There's nobody on GH that's not good. It's just how you rile them up at the time. If I stick my finger out at Maurice Benard (Sonny), believe me, he's going to bite it off! My game and his game. That makes the scene interesting."

In the 10-page special dedicated to Shriner, he shares his hilarious childhood connection to the legendary Lucille Ball, memories of those iconic early years on GH, and the person to whom he attributes the show's success. We also opened our files to find some old photos of Shriner that will surely put a smile on your face!

Budig's Back On GH!


Ever since Hayden was shot and put in a coma before she could reveal that Jake was really Jason, GENERAL HOSPITAL fans have been wondering when portrayer Rebecca Budig would be back on the soap so her alter ego could wake up and put things right.

"Finally!" Budig posted to Twitter. "I can now say I'm so excited to be at GH! Thank you all for your support!"

We'll let you know as soon as we have more details of her return, such as how long this stint will be, but for now, it looks like Liz and Nikolas might be in trouble! Hit the comments to share your thoughts on how you'd like to see the storyline go!

New Twist In Prospect Park Lawsuit!


In a new court motion, Prospect Park Networks has asked to convert its Chapter 11 bankruptcy plan to a Chapter 7 because they have been unable to pay the fees owed to their legal counsel, Jones Day, in the breach of contract suit against Disney/ABC over ONE LIFE TO LIVE. PPN had hoped that selling $6 million in tax credits it had received for filming the OLTL and ALL MY CHILDREN reboots in Connecticut would pay for the law firm to represent them in the $95 million lawsuit, but the proceeds weren't enough to keep Jones Day as their counsel or find a suitable replacement once PPN had paid off their largest claim holder.

"The best hope for a meaningful recovery to creditors is successful prosecution or settlement of the ABC litigation," reads the motion. "The debtor and the debtor's counsel have done everything to keep the ABC litigation alive for the benefits of creditors."

Under the Chapter 11 filing, PPN would have liquidated the estate, but the company's creditors bashed that plan, claiming that the disclosure statement failed to provide information about how the production company valued the contract suit with ABC (its primary asset) or how that litigation would be handled under the plan. Switching to Chapter 7 bankruptcy would effectively allow PPN to have their debts canceled. (However, PPN is requesting that a trustee be appointed as quickly as possible to oversee the ongoing ABC litigation.) Explaining in the motion that their revenue stream from Hulu is set to expire on July 31, rendering the estate "administratively insolvent because the outstanding and unpaid fees awarded to estate professional exceeds the amount of cash the Debtor has on hand."
