Rebecca Budig Joins GH!

As part of Fan February, GENERAL HOSPITAL is going to be full of surprises, and executive producer Frank Valentini and headwriter Ron Carlivati kicked things off by taking to Twitter to announce (with no small amount of teasing for the eager fans) that Rebecca Budig would be joining the show!

No stranger to daytime, after failing to land the role of Kelsey Jefferson on ALL MY CHILDREN, Budig went on to nab a three-year gig on GUIDING LIGHT as the second of four Michelle Bauers. But it was her 1999 debut as Greenlee Smythe that catapulted her to stardom. Teamed with Josh Duhamel as Leo, they soon became one of the soap's biggest supercouples. When she left AMC six years later to relocate from New York to Los Angeles, she had two Daytime Emmy nominations on her resume. After returning to the show for a year in 2008, she later signed on when production was moved to L.A. and remained until the series went off the air in September of 2011.

Budig is set to play a new character who Carlivati describes as "a real spitfire" and Valentini as a "Killer role." (Whether she'll turn out to be an actual killer isn't clear, but hey, this is GH after all!) "I can't wait to be a part of GH and to work with a group of very talented people!" Budig tweeted. We'll update you with more details on the character, when she's set to debut, and how long she'll be in Port Charles as soon as we get them!

What are your reactions to this surprise casting announcement? Who do you think she should play? Sound off in the comments!

OLTL's Williamson Lights A FIRE!

BreeWilliamsonHdshot.jpg

Things are about to get even hotter on NBC's CHICAGO FIRE thanks to ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Bree Williamson (Jessica), who will begin a two-episode guest arc Tuesday, February 10, at 10:00 p.m. EST. Look for her to play Beth, a potential new love interest for Lieutenant Matt Casey (played by Jesse Spencer).

Much like OLTL's Jessica, Beth is said to be a beautiful, easygoing woman who's got some hidden baggage that could cause trouble for the hunky firefighter. "Everybody there — the cast and the crew — was so much fun. I loved it. What a great place to work!" enthuses the actress, who shot her scenes just weeks ago. "And I loved being in Chicago because BethAnn Bonner (Talia, OLTL) lives there, so I got to go and see her."

Next, Williamson will star opposite Jason Dohring (VERONICA MARS, RINGER) and Corbin Bernsen (ex-Durant, GENERAL HOSPITAL) in the Hallmark Channel Original, Portrait Of Love when it airs on Saturday, March 14, at 9:00 p.m. EST. For details about the romantic drama and everything else that's happening for the talented actress, check out her Keeping Track feature in the Soaps In Depth issue on sale Monday, March 2!

GH Recap: Sonny Gets Away With Murder!

MichaelCarlySonnyDocks.jpg

Bombs blew up all over Port Charles, and not only was Sonny in no way responsible for them, he risked his life to save the lives of others. He was a hero, a label Michael was conflicted to acknowledge. Dante encouraged him to do what any other decent human being would do: tell Sonny "thank you"!

Sonny was recovering from the blast in a hospital bed, as Carly, Morgan and Shawn stood vigil. Morgan couldn't hide his anger that his father almost died and Michael was nowhere to be seen. Still weak from the happenings of the night before, Sonny tried to get Morgan to cool his jets and not judge his brother.

Across the bay on Spoon Island, Ivy walked in on Nikolas, and she was ready for a fight. Not only did he stand her up at the Haunted Star party, it was his grandmother who was to blame for the whole nightmare. As she stormed out, Lulu stormed in with a similar rant. Thanks to some poorly chosen words on Nikolas' part, her voice raised even louder when he let it slip that he knew of the bomb before it blew. "You're not the brother I thought you were!" she shouted.

Meanwhile, Helena and Fluke were in adjacent jail cells, looking to blame someone for their fate. Helena, however, had a "get out of jail free card" in the form of Sloane, who, along with Mayor Lomax , was in her back pocket. Sloane drove home the point that if he released them, suspicion would fall on him, which would cause a domino affect that would obliterate their plans. Fluke agreed. The only way for Sloane not to blow his cover was to let the investigation play out as it normally would... with the discovery of who Fluke really was!

Back at GH, Obrecht told Nathan she'd gladly assist in the investigation. "All the answers you seek about Luke Spencer will be found here," she said, whipping back a sheet to reveal charred bones. "Among his remains." After getting the okay from Sloane to continue with the investigation, she tested the bones to determine their age and Nathan ran Fluke's fingerprints through the police database. Shortly afterwards, she informed Tracy and Lulu that the bones had been decaying at least 20 years, so the corpse couldn't be Luke's. Nathan rushed in with news of his own. "The fingerprints of the man we have in custody are a match..." he said. "... for Luke Spencer."

While Kiki was getting word from Sloane that they called off the search for Ava and she was presumed dead, Dante paid Sonny a visit. "What you did, took that bomb from Michael and jumped in the water with it. Pretty impressive there, old man," Dante said. "I'm glad you're alive." He gave his father a long, tight hug, bringing tears to Sonny's eyes. Cops interrupted the moment to escort Sonny back to Pentonville. As he was being wheeled out, Michael arrived to see him, as did Ivy. She towed along with her her father, the governor of New York. "You acted selflessly and with great heroism," the governor said. "And because of your courage, I don't think you should spend another day behind bars."

Monday on GH, Sam loses sleep over Jake, Helena tries to swing a deal with Tracy and Michael reacts to the news that A.J.'s killer is going free! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

At Long Last, We Know Who Fluke Is!

FlukeIsLuke.jpg

Over the past year, GENERAL HOSPITAL fans have been trying to figure out the identity of the man we dubbed "Fluke." Who has been impersonating Luke and terrorizing the people of Port Charles? Theories ran the gamut from the believable ("Bill Eckert never really died!") to the outlandish ("Brenda is wearing a Luke mask... and, um, lifts!"). But as of today, we know the truth: Fluke is really... Luke?

Warning: Stop reading now if you don't want to know the answer!

Last week, the pieces began falling in place when Dante was trapped in the Elm Street basement with what viewers believed to be a captive Luke. Yet when the cop woke up with the prisoner, what he actually saw was a rotting corpse! Today, it was determined that the body in question most likely belonged to the long-dead Bill.

But the truth came in the final moments. As "Fluke" languished in his cell, he admitted, "The answer's been staring them in the face the whole time. And not one of them cared to see it." Meanwhile, Nathan -- aka Detective Sexypants -- got the results of a finger print test which proved that the man in custody, the one who'd been dubbed Fluke, was in fact Luke!

What the... ?!? Next week, the show will begin to examine exactly how Luke became Fluke... and why! But in the meantime, we want your thoughts on the shocking twist! Hit the comments and let us know if you were blown away, disappointed, more confused than ever... or a combination of all three!
