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.

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.

Cheetwood Is Moving!


Magic Milo is about to add "disappearing act" to his repertoire. Drew Cheetwood, who plays Sonny's bodyguard/Epiphany's main squeeze, Milo Giambetti, is packing up his family and moving to Michigan.

"The game change was starting a family and having kids," says Cheetwood, who joined his real-life and reel-life brother, Derk Cheetwood (Max) on GH in 2006. "I'm in full support of how I was brought up — the values, the mentality. I thought somewhere in the Midwest would make sense one day. And all the things that I am, I can do there, too."

But all hope is not lost for Milo fans. Cheetwood is very happy to say that there is a good possibility that after his November move, you'll still see Milo around! "I gave [executive producer] Frank Valentini the rundown of where my heart was," Cheetwood says. "He said that he understood 100 percent because he has a ton of family on the East Coast that he misses every day. I said, 'I hope it doesn't mean that Milo can never be a part of the show again. If you guys can group some shows together, maybe I can fly out.'" Valentini let Cheetwood know there was a very good chance that could happen.

Meanwhile, let's all wish Cheetwood luck in his new home and his continued success in both the health/fitness world and with acting! "It's interesting that you can act anywhere, really," he points out. "They just shot Batman Vs. Superman in Detroit. You don't necessarily have to be in L.A. or New York to make this thing work. Sometimes getting out of that element, getting out of the belly of the beast can be more beneficial."

GH Friday Recap: Morgan's Killer Instinct!


Miss Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL? We'll fill you in!

Sonny couldn't risk getting upset in his fragile state, but he was. He remembered very clearly that while he was unconscious, Morgan told him that he was going to kill Julian Jerome. Michael and Carly took that news very seriously. Upon learned from Milo that Morgan had a gun and was going after Julian, Michael and Magic M hopped into action to track him down.

Meanwhile, Morgan walked into Julian's apartment with his gun drawn, but no one was there. Julian was, actually, at Alexis' place. Aware that he was a marked man, Julian knew he had to get out of town fast! Alexis had an idea. She had rented a lakehouse for the fall, so they could spend weekends away. She handed Julian the key, suggested their love nest be his safehouse for the time being. He agreed, and off they went. What they didn't know was that T.J. overheard their entire conversation!

Later, when Morgan showed up at Alexis' place, he instead found T.J. Morgan worked the teen until he convinced him to reveal Julian's whereabouts. Morgan dashed out of there and headed to Julian's hideout. When he arrived, he interrupted Julian and Alexis in mid-kiss... and greeted them with a loaded gun!

Scotty and Ava's deal was simple: he'd get the Connie murder charges against her dropped and she'd give him $5 million. Good plan, but it wasn't going to happen quite that easily. After the judge dismissed the charges without prejudice, Ava followed Scotty back to his room to retrieve the flash drive that contained the incriminating evidence. But when he opened the door, they saw that the room had been ransacked... and the flash drive had been stolen.

Ava had a hissy fit. As long as that flash drive was out there, there was always the chance she could end up in prison. Ava went home and declared, "Time to say goodbye to Denise DeMuccio." Translated: goodbye dark hair!

Paul was feeling particularly melancholy. He put his signed divorce papers in the mail, ending his marriage to Jenny. He and Tracy were having a rather intimate moment discussing it, when Dillon and Maxie stormed in and announced that the movie they were shooting was off. Mayor Lomax had issued a "cease and desists" order, saying they didn't have the proper permits.

As Paul looked over the legal document, he noticed that the mayor's name was Janice Lomax. Small world. He knew Lomax in law school, and she had quite a thing for him! Paul called Lomax and used his charm to get the movie shoot back on!

Meanwhile, Patrick opened his front door and got quite a shock. "Surprise!" Sam, Anna, Danny and Emma shouted. It was Patrick's birthday and a celebration was needed. After he opened his presents (including a guitar from Sam), Anna left with the kids for the night. Patrick held Sam and told her what a very happy man he was. Then he added softly, "I want to marry you."

Monday on GH, Julian finds himself in a rather precarious situation, Sam mourns Jason on their wedding anniversary, and Maxie asks Tracy about her history with Paul. Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Need A Kristina Refresher?


On today's episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL, Lexi Ainsworth brought Kristina Corinthos Davis back home to visit her father, Sonny, as he recovers from the gunshot wound that nearly killed him. Since it's been a few years since the character was last on the canvas, Soaps In Depth is here to provide you with a refresher on the storyline that led Alexis and Sonny's child out of town to begin with!

Yale brought out the worst in Kristina. When she returned to Port Charles two years ago, it was bitter and resentful that her father had pulled a few strings to get her into the prestigious university. She also returned with a boy named Trey. He was a budding filmmaker who followed Kristina home to produce their reality show, MOB PRINCESS. Small world that it is, Trey turned out to be Connie Falconeri's son, who was conceived during rape and later abandoned.

Even though Kristina was conned into marrying Trey (she demanded an annulment upon realizing that he was the son of her dad's mortal enemy, Joe Scully), the young couple eventually realized that they wanted to be together as a bona fide couple and decided to move to California for a fresh start. But while Trey said an emotional good-bye to his mother before moving across the country, Kristina became distracted by a rumbling in the trunk of Connie's car, unaware that Johnny was tied up inside! When Kristina pointed out the mysterious ruckus, Connie got in the car and peeled out! Concerned that something very weird was going on, Trey, Kristina, and their pals Michael and Starr hopped into a car and followed Connie in close pursuit. As a result of the car crash that occurred when Connie slammed on the brakes, Trey suffered a serious brain injury.

When Trey was declared brain dead, Connie ultimately agreed to take her son off life support. But Kristina blamed her father's ex for Trey's death and smashed Connie's computer with a bat, threatening that she would be next to die! Connie called the police and had her arrested, but during Kristina's arraignment, changed her tune and dropped the charges. Nevertheless, the judge sentenced Kristina to community service at Pentonville.

Kristina later left Port Charles and returned to college, this time at Wesleyan University in Connecticut.

GH Friday Recap: Sonny's On The Brink Of Death!


The gunshot wound Sonny received to the chest caused him to lose a lot of blood, and his condition wasn't looking good. Patrick carefully and quietly broke it to Carly, Michael and T.J. that although Sonny was in need of surgery, he was far too weak to survive it. And, with the bullet so perilously close to his spine, one wrong move could paralyze him for life. For the time being, they had to wait and see if he improved.

Michael stepped into the E.R. room for alone time with the man that raised him. "You are my father, and as long as I live, I will be your son," Michael assured an unconscious Sonny. Carly went in next. Trying to remain strong, she spoke of her undying love. "We're going to get through this the way we've gotten through everything, and that's together," she cried. T.J. went in last. He thanked Sonny for saving his life, adding, "I owe you."

Lulu arrived at the PCPD and told Dante that Olivia saw Julian on the pier right around the time Sonny was shot in his nearby warehouse. Of course, an already fired up Morgan walked in just in time to hear that. Morgan grabbed Julian by the collar and threatened to annihilate him on the spot. Julian adamantly denied having anything to do with Sonny's shooting and went so far as to suggest that Olivia had a motive for shooting Sonny because he cheated on her. "I hope Dante didn't inherit his father's wandering eye," Julian said, laughing at Lulu. With that, Dante slugged him! Dante was a bundle of nerves. "I gotta go see my father," he told Lulu. "If something where to happen to him, I don't know what I'd do."

Patrick looked over the latest test results. "By the looks of these, the odds aren't great," he told Sam. Morgan, meanwhile, returned to the hospital and filled in Carly and Michael about Julian being held for questioning at the PCPD. He then went in to see his father. "Julian's gonna pay for what he's done," Morgan said, leaning in close to Sonny. "I'm gonna kill him."

Liz freaked out when she saw Jake's shirt covered in blood. He told her about Sonny's shooting, and then confided in her that Sonny said something puzzling to him as he was sprawled out on the warehouse floor, bleeding out: "I knew you'd come. You always do." Liz knew it was only a matter of time before Jake would learn he was Jason, and that worried her to no end. She was on the verge of telling him the whole truth!

Hayden began asking Nikolas questions about Helena and Jake that he did not want to answer. Lucky for him, Sloane's arrival saved Nik from digging a deeper hole. Now that Sloane sacrificed a future with Anna, he demanded Nikolas make good on his promises, but Nik all but laughed in his face. Meanwhile, Jordan filled in Anna about what went down with Sonny and T.J., and Anna broke the bad news to Jordan that Sloane double-crossed her. Although Jordan was determined to build cases against Lomax and Sloane, Anna (protecting herself against Sloane's reprisal) convinces Jordan to back off.

Monday on GH, Liz makes a confession, Nina and Franco pull a fast one on Ric, Dante learns that Sonny might not make it, and Morgan vows to kill Julian! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Ramirez Protects And Serves


As GENERAL HOSPITAL's young Gia, Marisa Ramirez had a way of finding trouble. Now the current cast member of CBS' cop drama, BLUE BLOODS, is working to help others get out of trouble in the city where the show is produced.

"Trying to provide affordable and safe housing in New York City is not easy," she says.

GH Friday Recap: A Heart-Wrenching Corinthos Moment!


Ava was already down in the dumps when Morgan visited her in the PCPD jail. He didn't come bearing words of support, though. Nope. He told her it was over between them! She was, understandably, hurt but wasn't convinced he was following his heart. "Say it!" she demanded. "Say that never hearing my voice, never feeling my touch, turning your back on me forever is what you want!" He didn't say those words exactly but he meant them when he said he wanted a fresh life with Kiki. Ava's heart broke as she told him that she wanted them both to be happy, so she promised that her daughter would never know what happened about their fling. After Morgan left, Ava collapsed in tears on her bed. Julian showed up and broke the news to her that he couldn't get the flash drive with her recorded confession that she killed Connie. Hopeless and emotionally exhausted, Ava accepted her presumed fate.

Morgan's roller coaster ride of emotions looked far too familiar to Sonny and Carly. Their son was in crisis mode and on the brink of crashing. He was in need of help, not just from them, but also from a doctor. Sonny was concerned how Morgan was going to react to what they had to say but agreed that he needed talking to. They were going to call Morgan, but he unexpectedly stormed in, hyper, happy and hopeful now that he officially broke up with Ava. "I finally feel free!" he cheered. Morgan's manic state had his parents very worried.

Carly carefully suggested he see a doctor because of everything he'd been through lately. "You think I'm crazy?" he asked. Sonny answered, "Bi-polar." Morgan fought their every word, insisting that now that Ava was out of his life, he didn't need a doctor; he only needed Kiki. Sonny laid out the hard and painful truth as a man who had been through every emotional swing Morgan was going through. Still, Morgan wouldn't hear it. "Everything is fine. I'm good," he smiled and left in a hurry.

Meanwhile, Franco gently told Kiki what Silas was going to tell her the day he was murdered. As Franco put it, "Morgan and Denise/Ava, they were doin' the deed behind your back." Kiki refused to believe it, that is, until Franco said that Ava admitted it to him. Kiki blamed Franco for not telling her, and then she had a light bulb moment: "Morgan slept with my mother and killed my father to cover it up." She stormed out and went back to Silas' apartment for the first time. There was a cheerful knock on the door. It was Morgan... and Kiki was not happy to see him!

Arraignment or not, Nina was still on a high after exchanging "I love you's" with Franco. Alexis told her that all she had to do was say two words to the judge: not guilty. Nina did do as Alexis asked, but then added enthusiastically, "Franco's not guilty either!" Alexis, the judge and even Madeline tried to get her to shut up and sit down. But Nina insisted, "You're prosecuting the wrong man!" And Ric entered as if on cue!

Nina's bail was denied and her case not dismissed. After she was taken to lockup, Ric told Madeline that he was arrested and that he had the document she wanted so desperately. But he had one question. He wanted her to explain, how did she get Silas' signature on it? Gotcha, Madeline!

Monday on GH, Kiki has a few choice words for Morgan, Maxie considers Dillon's interesting career offer, and Madeline's got some explaining to do! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH's Delia Sings!


"Singing" on GENERAL HOSPITAL can sometimes mean ratting out the mob, but that's not the kind of tunes that Ilene Kristen (Delia) has been working on. The Emmy-nominated actress has completed her first CD titled I'm Not Done With U, now available on iTunes and

"It's a collection of my own original songs, and I'm really excited to share this more personal side of myself with my friends and fans who've been with me through my career," Kristen says. "Of course, I love acting and soaps and stage, but music is where it all began for me, dancing backup starting at the age of 9 at the beach clubs in Long Beach."

Kristen adds that it was in Southern California where she was "bitten by the Latin groove, and over the years, jazz, rock and blues melded in, and the result is a sound and style that I feel truly represents me.

"I hope you'll listen to some of the tunes and decide to buy the album," she adds. "I'm really proud of it, and so delighted to give you the opportunity to share in my perhaps lesser-known but equally fervent passion for music."

You can check out Kristen's music on iTunes and!

GH Friday Recap: Brad and Rosalie Cooper? Huh?


Lucas was clearly furious with Brad after learning he was already married. Brad wanted to work through it, but that wasn't going to happen if Lucas wouldn't even talk to him. A little later, Rosalie met Lucas and thought he was quite the looker. Who doesn't think that? Any way, she hit on him and his was response was, "Uh. Um." She asked, "What? Engaged? Gay?" Actually, all of the above, Rosalie. She was a wee bit surprised and made a hasty retreat. After she stepped out of the room, Brad stepped in. Then Rosalie returned. She looked at Brad; Brad looked at her. "Brad?" "Rosalie?" Yes, Brad was married to, of all people, Rosalie!

Hayden's condition improved enough that Patrick released her from GH. He asked her if someone would be taking care of her. Cue Nikolas and the ominous, foreboding music! Nik invited her to recoup at Wyndemere, which was an offer she couldn't refuse for many reasons. "If you can't trust a prince, who can you trust, right?" she asked. Oh Hayden, you can't trust a prince either, my dear. She smiled at Nik and thanked him, saying, "As soon as I get my memory back, I will not be your problem anymore." That might be true because, at that point, Nikolas will probably have her killed!

Valerie had Dillon helped her move out of Wyndemere so Hayden could move in. Dillon wasn't much of a Nik fan. He didn't understand how the man that once loved Emily so deeply could spit on her grave by seizing her family's company. It's okay, Dillon. GH viewers don't understand that either. Meanwhile, Lulu gave Dante the good news and the bad news. The good news was that she was going to be bringing in some extra income. The bad news was that she was going to be working with Dillon. After exchanging "I trust you" with each other, there was a knock at the door. Behind it: Olivia. She was back!

Jake stopped by Sonny's place and told Carly how he and Sam were working for Michael to find leverage to blackmail Nik into returning ELQ. "Excellent!" Carly said, flashing her pearly whites. But what really made her day was when Jake said that she was his best friend. That elicited a giant hug, at which time, of course, Sonny walked in. He warned her that Jake's mysterious past would inevitably spell danger down the road, and he didn't want her to get caught in the blowback.

Sam interrupted Liz's pensive state by bringing Danny over to meet Little Jake, a visit that gave Liz that "just sucked on a lemon" look. Sam and Liz introduced the tykes to each other, saying they were brothers because they had the same Daddy. Liz mentioned to Sam that she accepted Jake's marriage proposal, prompting a forced smile from Sam and a turn away while biting her lip. Definitely not a "woo HOO!" When Jake returned and after Sam left, Jake got down on bended knee and presented Liz with an engagement ring. She was thrilled, and he happily slipped it on her finger. Little did she know, their happiness was being threatened back at Wyndemere, where Hayden's memory was beginning to return!

Monday on GH, Brad explains his past to Lucas, Olivia updates Dante and Lulu about her baby, and Jordan interrogates Sonny about the increasing Mob violence! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

On The Road To Recovery!


After seriously injuring his hand in a motorcycle accident (just as GENERAL HOSPITAL's recent three-week hiatus had commenced), Ryan Paevey (Nathan) tells Soaps In Depth that he's well on his way to a full recovery. "My doc is impressed with how quickly my tissue has mended," the actor reports. "All the 'road rash' is gone. The bones have fused, and my body's not fighting the metal. The surgical side is fine."

However, there are still a few obstacles to overcome. "My range of motion is still really limited," he confides. "It'll probably be a while before I'm on the bike or in the gym again."

Paevey credits his pal Mike Viruet, a trainer/nutritionist, with helping him heal. "He came over and totally re-hauled my refrigerator and prepared all these meals for me. He designed a plan especially engineered to aid in the recovery process. So it's pretty cool — I had three microwavable meals from a buddy for a while!"

The GH hunk is right-handed — which is the one he injured — so his life has gotten a little more complicated. "Elastic and I have become good friends," quips the performer. "Buttons are a nightmare!" The good news is that because Paevey's injury occurred at the beginning of GH's hiatus and his recovery has been going so well, the accident didn't have to be written into Nathan's storyline. "[GH executive producer] Frank Valentini was really supportive when I called him both after the accident and surgery. I told him I can't pick anybody up or punch anybody. But that's it."

The actor hasn't had to call in sick a single day of taping because of his rough spill, either. "If I miss a day of work then something is terribly wrong," he quips. "It's because I either don't know that I'm working or I'm dead!"

GH Friday Recap: Silas Is Murdered!


Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL was a doozy!

Denise was still shaking from her encounter with Silas when Morgan returned. She told her boy toy that Silas threatened to tell Kiki the truth about finding them in bed together, and she was certain he'd make good on that threat. Morgan flew into a rage. Before Denise could stop him, Morgan rushed out, intent on stopping him!

Meanwhile, Nina was pleasantly surprised to see Franco in Shadybrook. He said he came because he never stopped loving her. She felt the same. Thrilled to be together again, they kissed. Franco was intent on getting her out of Shadybrook and was shocked to learn that Nina committed herself. She believed that Franco was right; that she kidnapped Avery. In fact, she was convinced that she had lost her mind because of her guilty conscience. Franco insisted that she was not the kidnapper because he knew who was -- Silas!

Franco told Nina the whole truth, everything from Silas kidnapping Avery to the fact that Ava has alive and trying to pull herself off as her long-lost look alike sister, Denise. Nina pretty much freaked out. She was furious that she continued to go to Silas for comfort, and he continued to lie to her so she'd go down for a crime that he committed! She tore out of the room in a furry.

Shortly thereafter, Franco arrived at Silas' apartment looking for Nina. The door was ajar. Franco slowly pushed it open. There, on the floor, he saw Silas in a pool of blood... and Nina kneeling above him with a giant knife in her hand!

Over at the Webber house, Elizabeth couldn't believe her ears. Laura revealed that she knew Jake was Jason and, after seeing how thrilled Monica was to realize her grandson was still alive, she deserved to know that her son was alive, too. And, as a mother, Laura was compelled to tell her! Liz begged her not to, at first just saying that Jake/Jason didn't remember anyone anyway; in the long-run it would just cause more confusion and pain for everyone.

Laura was unconvinced until Liz pulled out the heavy armor by saying that Nikolas could wind up in prison. Liz told her about Hayden and how all evidence pointed to Nikolas trying to kill her to keep her from revealing Jake's true identity. The news that her son would do that devastated Laura, but she wanted to hear it from Nikolas' lips that he had something to do with Hayden taking a bullet to the head. Again, Liz pleaded with her to not mention a word to Nik about their conversation. Moments later, Nikolas showed up at Liz's door. Laura took a deep breath and assured them both that she had decided to keep the information about Jason to herself.

Patrick told Sam the good news that Liz had decided to allow Danny and Jake to get together. Sam was, of course, thrilled. Just as she was leaving the hospital, she bumped into Jake. He told her Michael's theory that Hayden Barnes must have learned the truth about Jake from Nikolas. Sam was intrigued by the idea but wasn't sure how to prove it. Just then, Patrick stepped in with news: Hayden was awake!

Monday on GH, Morgan opens up to Sonny, Laura makes a surprising decision and Franco deals with Nina's latest conundrum! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Budig's Back On GH!


Ever since Hayden was shot and put in a coma before she could reveal that Jake was really Jason, GENERAL HOSPITAL fans have been wondering when portrayer Rebecca Budig would be back on the soap so her alter ego could wake up and put things right. A while back, new co-headwriter of the soap Jean Passanante seemed to leak news of the actress' return, but now we've heard straight from the source!

"Finally!" Budig posted to Twitter. "I can now say I'm so excited to be at GH! Thank you all for your support!"

We'll let you know as soon as we have more details of her return, such as how long this stint will be, but for now, it looks like Liz and Nikolas might be in trouble! Hit the comments to share your thoughts on how you'd like to see the storyline go!

New Twist In Prospect Park Lawsuit!


In a new court motion, Prospect Park Networks has asked to convert its Chapter 11 bankruptcy plan to a Chapter 7 because they have been unable to pay the fees owed to their legal counsel, Jones Day, in the breach of contract suit against Disney/ABC over ONE LIFE TO LIVE. PPN had hoped that selling $6 million in tax credits it had received for filming the OLTL and ALL MY CHILDREN reboots in Connecticut would pay for the law firm to represent them in the $95 million lawsuit, but the proceeds weren't enough to keep Jones Day as their counsel or find a suitable replacement once PPN had paid off their largest claim holder.

"The best hope for a meaningful recovery to creditors is successful prosecution or settlement of the ABC litigation," reads the motion. "The debtor and the debtor's counsel have done everything to keep the ABC litigation alive for the benefits of creditors."

Under the Chapter 11 filing, PPN would have liquidated the estate, but the company's creditors bashed that plan, claiming that the disclosure statement failed to provide information about how the production company valued the contract suit with ABC (its primary asset) or how that litigation would be handled under the plan. Switching to Chapter 7 bankruptcy would effectively allow PPN to have their debts canceled. (However, PPN is requesting that a trustee be appointed as quickly as possible to oversee the ongoing ABC litigation.) Explaining in the motion that their revenue stream from Hulu is set to expire on July 31, rendering the estate "administratively insolvent because the outstanding and unpaid fees awarded to estate professional exceeds the amount of cash the Debtor has on hand."

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.

"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 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.

Joy For GH's Benard?


We don't usually pat ourselves on the back here at Soaps In Depth, but in this case, we might just have to. Being the eagle-eyed soap viewers that we are, we noticed a little something interesting while watching the trailer for the upcoming movie Joy, based on the life of housewife-turned-inventor Joy Mangano. During a shot in which Joy (played by Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence) is scrubbing the floor, there is a man on her television who looks remarkably like GENERAL HOSPITAL superstar Maurice Benard (Sonny)!

The movie, directed by David O. Russell and starring Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro, was shot in the Boston area, so that could tie into those tweets that Benard posted back in March about how he flew from Los Angeles to the East Coast for the first time in 10 years. We're thrilled to see the Emmy Award winner making his mark on the big screen, especially after his star turn in the critically-acclaimed The Ghost And The Whale.

You can see the trailer, which features Benard in two scenes, for yourself by clicking here. We'll share more information as we can dig it up before Joy's Christmas 2015 release date.

GH Friday Recap: Lucky's Reunited With His "Dead" Son!


Finally, some good news on GENERAL HOSPITAL! Little Jake, the tow-headed, all-American nine-year-old boy that Lucky raised as his own with Elizabeth and was long believed to be dead was actually alive!

Luke wasn't sure what to make of Helena's story about Jake being snatched after he was supposedly run down in the middle of the street. All these years, Luke placed the blame square on his own shoulders as the man who killed his own "grandson" while driving intoxicated. But none of that was true. When Luke saw the boy playing in the main mansion on Cassadine Island, he wasn't sure what to believe. Was Helena just weaving a tale... or was it really Jake?

When Lucky arrived, all it took was one look to confirm the boy was who Helena said he was. Lucky was overcome with emotions and a little uncertain about what to do next. While Laura took Jake for a walk to tell him that they were heading back to Port Charles, where he was born, Luke and Lucky had a heart-to-heart. They shared their mutual admiration, respect and love for each other, as father and son who had been through it all. When Laura and Little Jake returned, they realized that the next step was to reunite Elizabeth with her son.

That day had already been a heartbreaking one for Elizabeth. Patrick gave Josslyn a clean bill of health, prompting a grateful Carly to embrace Liz and thank her for donating her son Jake's kidney that, ultimately, saved Joss' life years earlier. Although it was far from Carly's intention, Liz relived that horrible day when she had to turn off her son's life support.

When Liz got home, she was an emotional wreck. Big Jake (aka Jason) tried to easy her stress with a shoulder massage, but Liz's poignant cross with Carly at the hospital was something she just couldn't shake. Liz tried to camouflage her pain by telling [Big] Jake she loved him... and he responded in kind. Liz sat alone for a few minutes, allowing herself to cry. Then there was a knock at the door. It was Lucky... and she'd soon find out that their "dead" son was with him!

Carly stopped in to see Lulu and brought Rocco with her. Too many days had passed since Lulu had held her baby son in her arms, and she was thrilled that they were together again. Lulu set Carly straight about her non-affair with Dillon, the one that Dante erroneously told Sonny about. Lulu told Carly that she hadn't been screwing around with Dillon, she was off saving her brother's life! But in the midst of their conversation, Carly let slip that Dante kissed Valerie.

At the same time, Dante was filling Valerie in on the truth about Lulu's trip with Dillon and that her "affair" with her old flame was nothing of the sort. It was all a big, unfortunate misunderstanding. Dante wanted to make things work with his wife... and never let her know that he slept with her cousin. Valerie covered her pain and acceded to his request to keep their night together to herself, but it was more than obvious that she had fallen in love with him. When Dante returned home, he was completely unaware that he was walking right into a confrontation with his wife!

Monday on GH, Elizabeth receives some mindboggling news, Lulu has a few choice words for Dante and Monica has a reunion... with "Jason"! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
