GH's Castillo Expecting Again!


Some eagle-eyed GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers noticed that actress Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) spent most of an episode last week sitting on the back porch of the Quartermaine mansion holding a pillow in her lap. And when Sabrina and Michael went swimming in the lake, she was reluctant to take off her cover-up and go swimming. And their suspicions were confirmed today when Castillo posted on Instagram a photo of the entire happy family, including husband Shane Aaron carrying daughter Victoria, and her carrying her baby bump! "Someone's getting a little brother..." she wrote in the photo's caption.

There's no word yet whether this pregnancy will be written into Sabrina's storyline on GH as it was with her first child. Would you like to see Michael and Sabrina start a family? Sound off in the comments with your thoughts and your best wishes for the expectant mother!

GH Friday Recap: Luke And Bobbie Share Goodbyes!


A soft, wistful smile still lingered on Luke's face from his otherworldly chat with his dearly departed mother, Lena, when Bobbie walked in the old Spencer house on Elm Street. The gun on the table immediately concerned her, but Luke set her at ease. Although he had considered ending his life, he instead decided to leave Port Charles in search of his future. Bobbie agree that he needed to "find himself," but couldn't he do that without leaving town? The thought of not seeing him again brought her to tears. After they agreed to not say goodbye, but merely arrivederci, he kissed her on her cheek and she left. Luke turned back into the room and saw a young man. They sat and talk for a while, then Luke patted his teenage self on the shoulder and said, "Are you ready to hit the road? With that, together, they exited the Spencer house for the last time.

Laura ran into Scotty at the Metro Court and told him that she didn't run off on a romantic adventure with Luke, but rather they were rescuing Lucky, Ethan from Frank and Jennifer Smith. Scotty was thrilled that they also found Little Jake alive and well, but he was surprised to hear that Lucky left town, considering his son wasn't dead! Laura confessed that there was more to the story. And it was evident that she was itching to tell someone the secret. Scotty offered to let Laura unburden herself, and, boy, was she tempted to do just that! But before she could reveal what she knew, Bobbie interrupted and announced that Luke was leaving town.

Nathan and Maxie were just about to enjoy dinner when Madeline joined them at their table. Nathan introduced his "mother" to his girlfriend, which did not go well. Madeline felt the need to needle Maxie about tripping in front of the cameras on the Nurses Ball red carpet and how she must learn to make graceful entrances. Nathan was about to escort Maxie away when Madeline explained that she was worried about his sister. She detailed Nina's hallucinations and expressed her concern that Nina really did kidnap Avery. Madeline begged Nathan to keep an eye on her.

Meanwhile, Nina was in shock to find a crib in her hotel room. Upon closer inspection, there was a creepy doll covered with Avery's monogrammed blanket inside! Panicked, Nina ran into the bedroom just as Ric was in the hall, paying off a hotel employee to remove the crib. When Ric walked in the suite, music was blaring. Nina came out of the other room and was stunned to see the crib gone. Ric reached into his pocket, switched on the recorder with the baby crying and pretended he didn't hear it. Nina freaked and sank to her knees. After Ric calmed her, Nathan arrived to check on her. He didn't just see Nina; he also saw the blanket that Avery was supposedly found in when she was kidnapped!

Franco's arrival had Ava hopeful that he had found the taped of her confession in Scotty's office, but her partner in crime admitted that the D.A.'s office was surrounded by security. After prodding, he finally got her to admit that she had been hooking up with Morgan. A lot. "What kind of mother would sleep with her daughter's boyfriend?" Franco shouted. Yes, she hated lying to her daughter, but she and Morgan had an unbreakable connection. Franco had an easy solution: He would tell Kiki the truth!

Monday on GH, Luke says one final farewell, Franco makes a not-so idle threat, and Madeline tells Maxie exactly what she thinks of her! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH Headwriter Out!


GENERAL HOSPITAL headwriter Ron Carlivati has been let go from the ABC soap. The scribe had moved to GH, along with executive producer Frank Valentini, upon the cancelation of ONE LIFE TO LIVE in January 2012. During his tenure at OLTL, Carlivati's team won the 2008 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team.

Daytime veterans Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante have been named co-headwriters, effective August 10. "We are pleased to welcome back two esteemed writers to our GH family," said Vicki Dummer, executive vice president current series programming, in the announcement. "Shelly and Jean's combined talents and experiences promise to continue the show's legacy of compelling storytelling that will resonate with our impassioned viewers. We're delighted with what they have in store for the show as they continue honoring the rich, diverse environs of Port Charles."

Both scribes come to Port Charles with plenty of soap experience -- and Daytime Emmy Awards. Altman's writing credits include OLTL, ANOTHER WORLD and headwriter at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. She was previously co-headwriter for GH back in 2012. Passanante, who joined the GH writing staff a few months back, has held the headwriter or co-headwriter position at AS THE WORLD TURNS, Y&R, ALL MY CHILDREN and AW, and also served on the OLTL writing staff.
