Farewell To The Britch!

Parry Shen (Brad) posted this tribute video to his departing GENERAL HOSPITAL co-star Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) with highlights from Brad and Britt's unique friendship. (And a cameo appearance from the original Brad!)

The actress posted a farewell message of her own to Instagram that read: "Hey you beautiful, awesome people! It's been so hard reading all your tweets about me leaving the show and not being able to respond! I wanted to wait till my last episode aired to say my good-byes. And here we are... What a fun and challenging adventure this has been! It went by too fast. I decided not to re-sign my contract because I would like to book other roles on primetime shows and film. You have to follow your dreams, right? Thank you for all the love and support. I hope you will continue to follow me on to the next adventure! I love you all! - Britch"

GH headwriter Ron Carlivati responded by tweeting: "We are going to miss The Britch, but we are going to miss Kelly Thiebaud even more! Best of luck with your next chapter, Kelly!"

GH Recap: Faison Busts Patrick!

FaisonPatrickSam.jpg

Faison looked pleased with himself for causing trouble for Sam and Patrick. The revelation that Jason survived the gunshot and that Patrick knew about it not only shocked Sam but it also infuriated her. Patrick tried to catch up with her as she ran out of the PCPD interrogation room crying. He explained that Victor forced Robin to do research for him or he was going to let Jason die. Jason did, however, die anyway. Sam pushed Patrick around as she yelled and screamed. She argued that maybe she could've done something or, at the very least, tell Jason that Danny was his son. Patrick begged for her forgiveness but that wasn't going to happen anytime soon.

Helena approached Jake on the pier with surprising news for him. She began with telling him how Patrick's wife, Robin, saved his life. Jake didn't remember it, of course. "You don't remember a great many things," Helena was happy to say. Then she dropped the bomb: he was Jason Morgan and during his stay at Crichton-Clark, he was conditioned to take her orders. And now, she had a job for him!

Back at the PCPD, Anna grilled Faison. She had her fill of him and told him so much. "No amount of torture or manipulation or lies you tell or people you kill, it's never gonna make me love you," she said. Oddly enough, he seemed to be okay with that, saying, "You should rejoice. The spell is broken." Anna was confused. He made himself clearer, adding, "There's no challenge to you anymore. You're not worthy of my love."

Shortly thereafter, Anna and a couple of officers escorted Faison out the PCPD's back door as Sam watched. Then, suddenly, a masked man grabbed her from behind!

Fluke toyed with Luke, who was tied to a chair and unable to fight back. "Unfortunately, the PCPD has already apprehended your imposter. And, typically for them and unfortunately for you, they got the wrong man," Fluke grinned triumphantly. If Fluke wasn't Larry Ashton and he wasn't Faison, Luke wondered who the heck he was! Fluke tugged at his own cheek, proving there was no mask. "I suppose extensive plastic surgery could explain it. Or maybe it's something more complex, something less scientific, something more... mysterious," Fluke said cryptically. Luke had plenty of time to figure it out while Fluke was busy living Luke's life!

In the prison weight room, Sonny was haunted by Michael's hate-filled words of rejection. Carlos approached him, laughing at the fact that Sonny was finally a caged animal. Although he was furious that he went to prison for a crime Sonny committed, Carlos was also a very happy man because he was getting out of that hellhole... today! But Carlos wasn't the only familiar face in Pentonville. Johnny was there, too! While Obrecht was convincing Britt to leave town with her and Faison, Sabrina was apologizing to Michael for telling him of her suspicion that Ava killed A.J. She also mentioned that she got fired from GH!

Monday on GH, shots are fired, Patrick has a heart-to-heart with Carly, and Sonny learns a thing or two about who's in charge at Pentonville! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Mathison Returns to TVLAND!

Cameron Mathison.jpg

Earlier this year, ALL MY CHILDREN's Cameron Mathison (Ryan) got the laughs as Joy's boyfriend on TV Land's HOT IN CLEVELAND. But when he returns to the network for a guest appearance in the Wednesday, December 3 episode of THE EXES, he won't be making friends. Rather, he's there to make a deal! "I'm definitely the straight guy [in this comedy]," Mathison acknowledges of his role as Haskell's lousy, long-lost brother. "He comes back seemingly to get close again, but ultimately needing a kidney!"

The former soap star says that working with the talented cast of comics, including SEINFELD icon Wayne Knight as Haskell, was the best part of the experience. "It was a whole week! We rehearsed for four days and then shot [live] it in a day," he relates. "It was so fun to watch these incredibly funny guys go through their own processes, and it was a very cool schedule. I loved it." Might Mathison turn up on the show again? "Yeah, anytime you're playing family of the regular cast there's always a possibility," he says. "Working for TV Land has been pretty good!"

The episode airs at 10:30 on Wednesday, December 3, on TV Land, but you can watch a sneak peek right here!

Spend Christmas With The Bay!

MartinezDaviesBay.jpg

Throughout December, the award-winning Web drama THE BAY will return with two more exciting chapters of story which will be told weekly over the course of eight 20-minute episodes. The chapters will feature another tragic death, as well as address last summer's cliffhangers. Will Lianna (Jade Harlow, ex-Sheryl, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) find out about Janice's (Lilly Melgar, ex-Lily, GENERAL HOSPTIAL) scintillating affair with young Peter? Will Lex (Tristan Rogers, Colin, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) reveal the identity of the person that he thinks Peter's socialite mom, Sara (Mary Beth Evans, Kayla, DAYS) killed? And how might the return of Liza (ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Ilene Kristen, Roxy) affect his recent efforts to revive his relationship with Sara?

To help play out all of these storylines and more, a host of new faces will be joining the cast. "Alicia Leigh Willis (ex-Courtney, GH) and Eric Nelsen (A.J., ALL MY CHILDREN) will play Sara's niece and nephew, Avery and Daniel, respectively," series creator Gregori J. Martin reveals. "Lindsay Hartley (Cara, AMC; ex-Arianna, DAYS) is coming in as a woman from Marly's (Martha Madison, ex-Belle, DAYS) past, Eric Martsolf (Brady, DAYS) will appear in flashback as a younger Lee Nelson, and Judith McConnell (Sophia, SANTA BARBARA) will bring to life a role that fans have been anticipating for years!"

However, the news that has the Internet buzzing is that soap opera veteran A Martinez (best known as SB's Cruz) reunited with former castmates Lane Davies (Mackenzie; Mason, SB) and Nicolas Coster (Jack; Lionel, SB) on set when he taped his December 16 appearance on the show. "I'm playing Janice's father, Nardo. I'm trying to get information out of Lane's [police detective] character, whom the family thinks is not being forthcoming," Martinez offers. "And I got to be the voice of reason with Janice, as is a father's wont to do." Tune in to catch the first two new episodes, which will be released back to back, on Thursday, December 4, at 3 p.m. EST.

GH Recap: What's Helena Got Up Her Sleeve NOW?

LukeHelena.jpg

Thanksgiving brings with it family reunions, lurking villains and, of course, pizza with the Quartermaines!

Julian made good on his promise to Alexis and brought her to Miscavige to see Luke. When the door was opened to his padded room, she was shocked to see her old friend drugged and constrained in a straightjacket. She took a good chunk of the hour-long show to unbuckle and free him while he told her of his doppelganger. Seeing Julian in the doorway, Luke chewed him out for being in on the plot and shouted, "Run, Jerome. Run like a rat!"

Helena showed up at Liz's but it was Jake who greeted her. Her face was familiar but he didn't know why. He stepped into the kitchen to retrieve Liz and tell her about the visitor who remained nameless to him. But when they returned to the living room, Helena had disappeared. Shortly thereafter, Sam and Emma arrived with Patrick and Danny following closely behind. Danny and Jake seemed to instantly connect, much to Liz's delight. Sam, on the other hand, looked a little uncomfortable. Or maybe she was just afraid of Liz's cooking.

Obrecht showed up at Wyndemere with "a noodle dish" and a chip on her shoulder about Anna. Little did she know that Faison was spying on her and Britt from a nearby window. As Nathan arrived to join the holiday celebration, Helena caught Faison lurking outside. She bossed him around, he bit her head off, and she went off on her merry way. Moments later, Obrecht was alone in the room when she turned and saw her beloved Faison in the flesh!

The whole Agent Sloane/Faison/hole in the ground thing had given Anna quite a nasty headache, which only got worse when Duke walked in her office. His release from prison didn't change anything between them. He had found out via a rambling message from Obrecht what Anna and Robert had done to Faison. Duke likened his lying about Sonny to her lying to him about Faison. Although the word "poppycock" didn't come out of Anna's mouth, that's what her response summed up to be. For the sake of their relationship, Duke could forgive her, but she still couldn't forgive him. They were over.

Carly didn't want Sonny to spend Thanksgiving alone so she paid him a visit at Pentonville. He assured her that the guards and the prisoners hadn't messed with him so his name must still hold weight. Even though she was conflicted about giving him bad news, she broke it to him that Michael moved into the Quartermaine mansion and legally changed his last name. Emotionally hitting bottom, Sonny told her to go be with her family and then, after sharing one last glance, he left.

Thanksgiving at the Quartermaine's was kicked off with Olivia cheerfully arriving with a humongous box of cannoli. Monica joined the party with the announcement that Cook 2 was hit with food poisoning so the entire dinner had to be thrown out. That meant one thing: pizza! After everyone began to chow down, Alexis showed up and announced that there was someone they'd all want to see... and Luke walked in behind her!

Monday on GH, Luke's family reunion kicks off, Obrecht reacts to seeing Faison and Julian tells Jordan who's in charge! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
