The Secrets Of Helena's Return!

Constance_Towers-B.jpg

Who out there really thought that GENERAL HOSPITAL's Helena was dead? Anyone? Bueller? If mere mortals like Jason, Robin and Duke can come back from the dead, surely the Dragon Lady of Port Charles wouldn't find death anything more than a temporary inconvenience.

"I'm just so happy to be back," Constance Towers (Helena) tells Soaps In Depth exclusively. "[Headwriter] Ron Carlivati and [executive producer] Frank Valentini are both wonderful. They've said if they could ever find a way to bring her back, they would. But I thought, 'They shot me through the heart!' There was blood on that beautiful jacket. They ruined it. When your wardrobe goes, you think, 'Maybe they're really serious this time!'"

Firearms And Choke Chains And Syringes... Oh My!

LuluStavros.jpg

On Friday's action-packed GENERAL HOSPITAL... 

Just an hour outside of Port Charles in what seemed to be the epicenter of everything that was evil, Crichton-Clark Clinic, Stavros burst into Victor's office with a "someone just keyed my car" look on his face. In his best imitation of a hissing Lord Voldemort, Stavros wanted to know if it was true that Lulu's embryo "implantation wouldn't bear fruit" unless she was administered hormones. Just a teeny weeny detail Victor left out. Smoke was all but coming out of Stavros' ears, and he went ballistic. After cooling his jets, he realized it was just a minor setback in his plan for Lulu to have his baby. Nothing he couldn't handle... immediately!

Stavros confidently waltzed into the room where Lulu and Dante were chained. This time, Stavros brought someone with him -- a doctor to administer hormones! Lulu called him a "psycho freak," to which he replied, "You really do not... want... to fight me on this. If you do... your husband will receive an injection... (whispered) of the bullet variety." Dante didn't want her to do it. She, however, caved to save her husband's life. They brought Lulu to a bed, as Stavros smiled, "One little prick and my little Lulu will be filled with everlasting joy." (Showtime "at night" dialogue, yes?) Lulu cried and Dante screamed! Stavros had one more surprise -- Lula was leaving with him!

Levi paid Nathan a visit and saw that Maxie was gone. He pointed a gun at Nathan's chest and demanded to know where she was. As if Nathan would tattle on Maxie. Levi left and, instead, went in search of her. Moments later, a guard came in. Rephrase, a stupid guard came in. Nathan got the best of the guy, choked him with his chain, took his door access card and used his keys to take off his handcuffs. Nathan then picked up the guard's gun and headed out to find his damsel in distress!

Maxie found her way to a patient's room. He stared at her with creepy eyes and whispered, "Felicia," and then he grabbed her arm! Needless to say, she was freaked. She ran for the door, and ran smack into Levi! He introduced her to his father, Peter Harrell Sr. The bedridden man said, "Thank you, son, for bringing her to me. Now it's time for her to die."

Anna planted a listening device on Obrecht and told her to get info about the hostages' location from Victor. When Dr. O arrived to see Victor, she told him what he wanted to hear, that Nathan was his son. Nathan burst in and pointed the gun at Victor, demanding to know where Maxie was. Victor calmly said, "Oh come now, Nathan. You're not going to kill your own father."

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Anna comes in with guns blazing, things heat up between Sam and Patrick, and Maxie and Nathan are reunited! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH's Monaco Meets BABY DADDY!

KellyMonacoGal.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL is going to get a little silly! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the ABC Daytime soap will be crossing over with ABC Family comedy BABY DADDY, with Kelly Monaco (Sam) playing an exaggerated version of herself.

In the episode currently slated to air at the beginning of season four in 2015, BABY DADDY character Danny lands a role on GH and enlists best friend (and crush) Riley to help him prepare. But when they get on set, GH superfan Riley loses it and starts to drive Monaco (as herself) up the wall!

We'll let you know when Monaco's episode of BABY DADDY is set to air!

AntonioDancingGal.jpg

Antonio Sabáto Jr. (ex-Jagger, GENERAL HOSPITAL) has taken on two highly demanding jobs — he's the host and active participant of the makeover show FIX IT & FINISH IT and he's learning to dance as a member of the celebrity cast of the new season of DANCING WITH THE STARS. Soaps In Depth couldn't resist asking the fan favorite hunk if, schedules permitting, he'd make time on his dance card (pun intended) for a return visit to Port Charles?

GH's Christopher Explores His Heritage

TylerChristopherGal.jpg

Shouting Secrets, a film starring GENERAL HOSPITAL's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) as a former football player who finds himself trapped in his Native American community while his estranged brother (The Twilight Saga's Chaske Spencer) finds success outside, is debuting Friday, September 5, at The Autry National Center in Los Angeles.

The screening will also mark the picture's official DVD and VOD release. The slice-of-life drama is centered on the failing health of the brothers' mother, which forces them to reconnect. "Tyler's character resented his brother for writing a supposedly fictional book about them," explains director Korinna Sehringer. "He also deals with some marriage troubles because he's having an affair with a minor."

For a soap star like Christopher, playing that kind of intense family drama in the film festival winner came easily. "[My character] struggles with [the affair] and the legal implications it comes with, as well as the embarrassment and shame to his wife and to his child," the actor offers. "He's trying to find ways to forgive himself and to get the relationship back with his wife he once had."

The film also features Christopher's former GH castmate, Ted King (ex-Alcazar). "Ted plays Dr. Matthews [the physician treating the brothers' mother]," Sehringer reveals. "He's in love with Caitlyn (Tonantzin Carmelo), the Native American doctor at the hospital." Visit the film's official site for more information or to order your copy.

SabatoBennett.jpg

The new celebrity contestants of DANCING WITH THE STARS were announced this morning, and there are two ABC Daytime alums competing for the Mirrorball trophy this season!

Antonio Sabáto Jr., best known to soap fans as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Jagger, will be performing with professional partner Cheryl Burke. She helped her partners Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith come in first place in two consecutive seasons, so will she do the same for Sabáto?

ALL MY CHILDREN alum Jonathan Bennett (JR) is also one of the 13 celebrities hitting the dance floor, and he's partnered with professional hoofer Allison Holker. This is the first season of DWTS for Holker, but she's been an All-Star on FOX's SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE for years.

Sabáto and Bennett will be joined by fellow contestants Tommy Chong, Randy Couture, Betsey Johnson, Lolo Jones, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, Tavis Smiley, Lea Thompson and Michael Waltrip. Watch and see how they do when the 19th season of DANCING WITH THE STARS premieres on Monday, September 15, at 8:00 p.m. EST. (And be sure to tune in on the following Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. EST to see who goes home!)

Billy Miller Is GH's New Jason!

MillerBurton.jpg

It turns out that the rumor was true: Billy Miller is about to join GENERAL HOSPITAL in the role of Jason Morgan! The buzz has been building for a while now that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum (he played Billy) would be assuming the role vacated by Steve Burton (now Y&R's Dylan). The soap's executive producer, Frank Valentini revealed the news today on Twitter after a playful banter with headwriter Ron Carlivati about some "big" GH news.

"I am really excited to be working with such a talented and acclaimed actor as Billy," Valentini said in a statement. "Our cast is thrilled that he will be joining the GH family, and I know that he will be an amazing addition to our talented cast."

With the presumed-dead Jason's wife, Sam, currently getting involved with Patrick (who wasn't crazy about his own wife, Robin, leaving her family behind to go bring Jason back to life) let's just say that the character's return is going to turn Port Charles upside-down!

Valentini hasn't released details of when we can expect to see Miller first air, but we'll definitely keep you up to date as more information is announced. How do you feel about this casting?
