GH Friday Recap: Dillon's Secret Is Out!


Dillon and Maxie's attempt at making a movie opened a whole can of worms that he never expected. His inability to shoot a love scene because Lulu invaded his thoughts led to him confessing to Maxie that he had feelings for her BFF. You'd think that tensions would be eased now that the secret was out there, but no. In fact just the opposite!

Maxie thought it would be best to unwind so she sought out Nathan for lunch. He could see that something was up, but she wasn't talking. In fact, she was kind of cagey. When she finally admitted things got "intense" with Dillon, Nathan misinterpreted and assumed that Maxie had developed feelings for Dillon. That got a big old "No!" from Maxie, who corrected him, saying that she and Dillon ended up talking about something personal to him and that she was keeping his confidence.

Back on the Haunted Star, Valerie pretty much threw herself at Dillon, only for Andy the intern to interrupt, asking if he could charge his camera in the office. Dillon agreed. Andy plugged in his camera and made a swift exit. Valerie was mortified for jumping Dillon, confessing that she was using him to forget someone else. Dillon asked if that someone was Dante. She admitted that it was, prompting Dillon to admit that he was using her for the same reason! His "someone" was Lulu. Valerie countered that she had done something far worse: namely, sleep with Dante! Dillon promised to keep her confidence and she agreed to keep his. But that digital video camera of Andy's? Nope it was not keeping their secrets!

Meanwhile, Franco and Nina were surprised to walk into Silas' old apartment to find Kiki still living there. They assumed she moved out after listing the apartment for sale, but Kiki informed them that since the murder, the place hadn't had too many takers. Franco apologized to Kiki for not keeping in better touch, but when she didn't return his phone calls, he decided not to push. Kiki claimed she had been busy working nights at a new job in finance and told him there was no need to worry about her. But she, too, had a secret -- she had become a frequent visitor to the Floating Rib, where she had been spending her nights getting toasted!

At least Sam and Patrick were happy! She spread rose petals all over the house, and whipped out a sign for him that read, "Yes, Patrick, I'll marry you." They celebrated with a kiss (or five) and a bottle of bubbly. Their love fest was moving along nicely... until there was a knock at the door. Laura -- the woman who knew that Jake was Jason -- was back in town and paying Sam a visit? Uh oh!

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Sabrina wants to talk with Anna about Carlos, Michael's behavior scares Tracy, and Liz receives a disturbing phone call! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

If there's been a John Stamos-sized hole in your heart, you're going to want to tune into tonight's premiere of GRANDFATHERED at 9:00 p.m. ET on FOX! GENERAL HOSPITAL's Blackie is back on network TV starring in this new sitcom as Jimmy Martino, a recently-divorced bachelor and restaurant owner who suddenly discovers that he's got a son.

Of course, that would just make the show called FATHERED. Turns out that the son, played by Josh Peck, has a daughter, making Stamos' eligible bachelor a granddad! (Naturally, that development makes Jimmy fear he'll be perceived as a lot less eligible...)

So tune in tonight at 9:00 p.m. on FOX for this GH alum's latest series, but before you do, check out the hilarious sneak peek below!

GH Friday Recap: "Marry Me. Right Now."


Carly, Michael and Morgan agreed that Ava was getting away with killing Connie, and now she was going to drag Sonny down further by going after Avery? Yep. That would be correct. Carly called Ric, hoping to form a strategy to keep the baby. His plan -- or at least the plan he told Michael and Morgan -- was to file a motion with the court in the morning. In the mean time, Ric wanted to make Sonny aware that there was a meeting of the Five Families in the works, and Ric thought it was important that he attend. Michael and Morgan objected. It would be Michael who'd grab the family reigns; not Ric.

Someone had to break the news to Sonny that Ava was free (thanks to missing evidence) and she was now determined to get custody of Avery. That "someone" was Carly. But in true Carly fashion, she had a plan. As she saw it, there was one thing they could do that might help solidify Sonny's hold on the baby. With that in mind, Carly asked Sonny to marry her, ilke, now!

Meanwhile, Paul summoned Ava to the docks. He informed her that she would be representing the Jerome Organization at the meeting of the Five Families. Under different circumstance, she'd be thrilled. But, for personal reasons, the timing was very bad. If she went public as the head of the Jerome crime family, Sonny would undoubtedly use it against her in a custody fight. Not that Paul cared, because he most certainly did not. He ordered her to tell the families that Julian was behind Sonny's shooting! She said no. But Paul wasn't asking her; he was telling her.

At least there was one person in town that was happy -- Elizabeth. She had a wedding to plan! Patrick overheard her tell her grandma Audrey that she and Jake had set November 6 as a wedding date, and subsequently, he mentioned how he proposed to Sam. Liz nearly jumped out of her skin with delight... until Patrick went on to mention that Sam said no because of her lingering hold on Jason!

Wanting to shake her feelings for Jason once and for all, Sam packed up the tiny porcelain phoenix and dragon and headed to the Chinese restaurant where she and Jason were married. As fate would have it, Jake was there, too. He wanted to give the Corinthos family a break from hospital food and what better way to get your mind off an assassination of someone you love than with a cream cheese Rangoon?

Jake sat beside a pensive Sam in the restaurant's patio area where she and Jason exchanged vows four years earlier. She admitted to Jake that she came to the restaurant hoping to be able to let Jason go, because Patrick asked her to marry him. She wanted to move on with Patrick but couldn't. She told him the story of how and why they were married there. While doing so, Jake flashed back to Sam getting on his bike. But was he having a Jake memory or a Jason one? Finally, Sam confessed to Patrick that deep down inside, she didn't really believe that Jason was dead!

Monday on GH, Sam makes a confession to Jake, Carly convinces Sonny to move forward and Michael gives Ava a stern warning! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Anderson Is Future-Bound!


Fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL's Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), you're in for a great surprise! If you're interested in seeing him in a role that he describes as "a character that people don't normally cast me in," set your DVRs for the Monday, September 28 episode of MINORITY REPORT airing on Fox at 9:00 p.m. ET

The sci-fi crime series first brought to life with the 2002 Tom Cruise film of the same name, is a look into a future where law enforcement has the ability to predict crimes (and, therefore, stop them) before they're committed. Anderson plays a man named Harlan, who is a bartender in a trendy pick-up club.

"I feel so lucky and thrilled to do have done it," Anderson says of the show set in 2065 Washington D.C. "It was such a fun show to work on. Not only does the futuristic world look so cool, but I think many folks might be surprised to see me as this kind of character. There may be a twist or two!"

GH's Willis Loses Her Mind!


Alicia Leigh Willis (ex-Courtney, GENERAL HOSPITAL) fans will not want to miss her tour de force performance in Dangerous Company. "It was the biggest film role that I've done, for sure," she offers. In it, Willis plays a successful businesswoman whose greedy husband (played by Rick Ravanello) conspires to make her think that she's suffering from early onset Alzheimer's disease.

Might her sister (played by Susan Sloan) throw her a lifeline? "She's so talented," Willis says of her co-star. "We had a really heavy scene, and I don't think I would ever reached the place I got to emotionally without her help." Catch the film on Lifetime Movie Network tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET and tomorrow at 12:00 a.m., and also on Amazon Video. And see Willis next in the fall season of The Bay.

Ava's Next Move

MauraWestGal.jpg Audiences were thrilled when at long last, GH's Ava picked up that box of hair coloring and washed the remnants of Denise right out of her hair. And, if she's being honest, so was her portrayer, Maura West! "I love Ava with all my heart," she admits. "She's such an incredible character, and I feel lucky that I get to play her!

If there's one thing missing from Ava's life, it would be love. And while she thought she had it with Morgan, that proved to be an epic mistake with far-reaching consequences. "She desperately wants to love and be loved," muses West. "But is she even capable of allowing herself to let down her guard? She did that, to a certain extent, with Morgan. But whenever she thinks that she's being seen as vulnerable, the protective barriers go right back up."

What else does West love about her complicated alter ego? Well, you'll have to pick up the latest ABC issue of Soaps In Depth to find out!

The Truth About Those Rumors!


Despite published reports on several Web sites claiming that GENERAL HOSPITAL's Nancy Lee Grahn was being fired or suspended because of remarks she made during Sunday night's Emmy telecast, we're here to tell you she's not going anywhere. A source confirms that the reports are "absolutely not true."

In the days since the Emmy telecast, Grahn and the soap have gotten more than a little negative publicity, a fact that led to the speculation about the actress being punished. Given that this is not the first time a member of the GH cast has stirred up a little controversy via social media, it seems likely that some sort of guidelines will be handed down in the not-too-distant future. Not surprisingly, Grahn has gone radio silent on Twitter since her attempts to apologize to those she'd offended seemed to make a bad situation worse. Her last tweet to her followers, posted on September 21, reads, "I apologize for my earlier tweets and now realize I need to check my own privilege. My intention was not to take this historic and important moment from Viola Davis or other women of color, but I realize that my intention doesn't matter here because that is what I ended up doing. I learned a lot tonight and I admit that there are still some things I don't understand, but I am trying to and will let this be a learning experience for me."

Parise Gets "Real"


GENERAL HOSPITAL fans remember Jeffrey Vincent Parise (ex-Carlos) as a deadly mobster; however, the man behind the mischief is much more light-hearted. In TV One's new original movie, Welcome To The Family, he'll get to show that side of himself while playing an outrageous Internet reality series producer.

"When the host of my best show goes out on early maternity leave, I'm convinced to give one of my producers, played by Kali Hawk, a chance to [replace her] and we have to find a story," he reveals. "Knowing that she's heading home soon [to announce her engagement] to her very lively and colorful family, she thinks it's a good idea to make the show about them."

But when the cameras get switched on, unexpected secrets get broadcast, leaving Hawk's character in quite the pickle. "As most reality TV producers probably do, my character sort of fudges [the truth] and tries to set the sails in the direction that he wants them set," Parise teases of the hilarity that ensues. "We get into a lot of slapstick, and Kali Hawk — whom most of my scenes are with — is incredible at improvisation. It's really funny."

Welcome To The Family, which also stars Valarie Pettiford (Sheila, ONE LIFE TO LIVE), premieres Saturday, September 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET. For more details about Parise's post-GH career, check out his Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth.
