Finn_Wittrock5408.jpg

While creator Ryan Murphy is remaining tight-lipped about the characters and story details surrounding the upcoming AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW, he did recently tweet that a daytime alum would be joining the cast of the FX series.

"Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of FREAK SHOW!" he posted on-line.

ALL MY CHILDREN fans will remember Wittrock from his stint as Tad's son, Damon. The actor has also made a name for himself on stage with a critically-acclaimed turn in Death Of A Salesman on Broadway. Wittrock has worked with producer Murphy before, in the recent HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart.

EXCLUSIVE: GH Star Swaps His Wife!

ChristopherFamilySwap.jpg

Tonight's episode of CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP features a soap-star switcheroo, with GENERAL HOSPITAL's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) swapping spouses with THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's ex-Ridge, Ronn Moss. For a preview of the drama, we went straight to Christopher himself to see how the week went!

"I had a blast," the actor reports to Soaps In Depth. "I just tried to be as zany and funny as I possibly could. I poked fun at myself the whole time and never took any part of it seriously. That was my approach to it, so I hope that comes across."

Although before this experience with the reality series, Christopher didn't know fellow soap star Moss well, he had five full days to really get to know his wife, Devin DeVasquez, who tried to loosen up some of his more rigid habits about fitness and diet. "Nothing goes in my mouth before I think about what it's going to do to me," he admits. "I tried to get the point across to her that it's more than about looks and my job — it's about living a longer life and having more energy and being around for [my son] Greysun.

"She tried to get me to 'live' a little bit," he adds. "It's not like I'm so rigid about it that I'm a 'no fun' person!"

And while his wife, Brienne, was living with Moss, Christopher learned to appreciate his spouse even more. "Sometimes you love each other but you can't stand to live with the other person because you have different habits," he says with a laugh. "We're not cut from the same cloth. We're two completely different people and we were raised different ways. Thankfully, for us, it works!"

Watch Christopher and Moss' episode of CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP airing Tuesday, July 22, at 10:00 p.m. EST on ABC or on ABC.com beginning the following day!

Nina Sets Her Scheme In Motion!

SilasNina(2).jpg

As if GENERAL HOSPITAL's Patrick hasn't been through enough, Nina poking her nose in his business is not what he needed... but that is what he got!

When Silas gets wound up, he's a testosterone-filled terror! He placed all blame of Rafe's death on Patrick and Obrecht, and he was going to make them pay! Spotting Obrecht in the hospital corridor, he went right at her, saying, "You and Drake are gonna answer for the blood on your hands!" You've never seen the usually high-strung Obrecht so cool, calm and collected, responding, "You failed your nephew. That's the simple truth." Ouch.

With the news that Rafe was the driver that ran Patrick's car off the road, Anna had some apologizing to do. The PCPD dropped the ball and that was inexcusable. He filled her in on the sordid detail of what was transpiring with Silas, only for the point to be driven home by Obrecht interrupting, saying that Clay was going public with accusations of malpractice. In order to soften the blow, Obrecht said that they had to get out there ahead of him and establish their own narrative to claim their innocence before Silas insisted on their guilt.

The wheels were spinning in the mischievous mind of the malevolent Nina. How could she get Sam out of Silas' life? When she saw Sam giving a comforting hug to Patrick, Nina knew the answer! First order of business was to listen in on a private conversation between Sam and Silas on the hospital roof. That, however, required her climbing out of her wheelchair and onto the stairs to eavesdrop in the doorway. And that she did.

Sam tried to calm down Silas, asking if going to war with Obrecht was worth having his and Rafe's name dragged through the mud. He snickered, "Are you worried about me going to war with Obrecht or that I'll make trouble for Patrick?" On the brink of tears, Sam went on to say that Patrick admitted to her that he thought about hurting Rafe on the table but that he didn't go through with it. Bingo! That's just what Nina needed! If she leaked that to the press, Sam would think that Silas was the culprit and that would be the nail in their romantic coffin!

There was a whole lot of commotion at Nathan and Maxie's apartment. When he arrived at his front door, the lock had been changed and his clothes were in a Hefty bag in the hall. No matter how insistently he denied calling immigration on Levi, she didn't believe him, so OUT you go Nathan. Evicted! But Maxie was blind to the truth -- Nathan didn't call the ICE, Levi did!

Meanwhile across toss, Spencer had this brilliant idea that his father, Nikolas, would reconcile with Britt if she were proven to be a "better specimen" than Liz. To that end, the lad organized a campers versus counselors competition. Sack race, three-legged race, tug-o'-war. His idea, though, was an epic fail when Liz got Nikolas' sympathy vote after it aggravated her gunshot wound. But Spencer had a new plan -- he'd run away!

On Monday's GH, Maxie has a shocking announcement, a reporter catches Silas off guard and Spencer's fate is terrifies Nikolas! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH Star Gets Scary!

MauraWestGal.jpg

Maura West (Ava, GENERAL HOSPITAL) is featured in a new horror movie called Come Back To Me, but she may not make it to the end credits alive! The film tells the story of a woman who begins suffering memory lapses and blackouts, then discovers that she's pregnant — but her husband is sterile! She sets up a hidden camera to keep track of what she's doing during her fugue states, and is shocked by what she discovers!

From the trailer, which you can see here, it seems that West's character, Eileen, has some kind of psychic abilities. Not that they seem to help save her life, if these clips are any indication! The film is adapted from the book The Resurrectionist by Matthew Guinn, and is written and directed by West's former AS THE WORLD TURNS co-star, Paul Leyden (Simon). Look for it in theaters, on iTunes, DirecTV and iN-Demand starting Friday, July 25... if you dare!

GH's deVry Takes On Primetime!

devry.jpg

While some of William deVry's GENERAL HOSPITAL co-stars are spending their three-week summer break touring Europe or Africa or just hanging out on a sandy beach, he's spending it working! The actor has left behind GH's Julian Jerome just long enough to travel to Vancouver, Canada, and film a two-episode arc for the Hallmark Channel drama CEDAR COVE, starring Andie MacDowell and Dylan Neal (ex-Dylan, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL). A Hallmark rep tells Soaps In Depth that deVry will play the boss of villain Warren Saget when his episodes air on Saturday, September 27, and Saturday, October 4.

DAYS' Sweeney Heads To GH!

AlisonSweeneyGal.jpg

DAYS OF OUR LIVES star Alison Sweeney (Sami) is heading to GENERAL HOSPITAL... to direct! Stepping behind the camera is nothing new for the fan favorite, who has directed many episodes of the NBC soap since 2011. "I'm really excited," Sweeney tells Soaps In Depth exclusively. "I've been 'shadowing' some of the directors there."

And while the episode she's slated to direct won't feature former DAYS co-star Kirsten Storms (ex-Belle; now GH's Maxie), the actress is excited to work with some new faces. "I get to direct Michelle Stafford (Nina), which I'm really looking forward to," she enthuses. "I'm really excited to work with like Roger Howarth (Franco). I've just admired him from afar so I'm looking forward to working with him."

Sweeney is also exploring producing, acting as executive producer as well as star of the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie Radio Hype. "It's about a woman who is getting into being a female talk radio DJ," she previews.

Although ABC hasn't announced an airdate for Sweeney's GH episode yet, we'll be sure to keep you in the loop. Same with her Hallmark Channel movie as co-stars and an airdate are revealed!

Off The Market!

ThompsonPaloma.jpg

Patrick's marriage may be falling apart on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but his portrayer, Jason Thompson, is having much better luck in the romance department, because he's now an engaged man! The actor popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Valentine lingerie designer Paloma Jonas. "An ocean beneath us, an endless sky in front of us, I asked her and she said YES," Thompson tweeted earlier this morning, along with a photo of him on bended knee before Jonas.

Check out the adorable photo here, on Thompson's Instagram.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Rafe Did "What" Because Of "Who"?

RafeNina.jpg

Rafe gives teenagers a bad name. Not because he's a belligerent, brazen bad boy. No. It's because he's a good kid who does stupid things!

Let's start from the beginning. Dante, Sam and Silas deduced that Rafe was driving the car that ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road, an event that lead to the premature birth and tragic death of teeny tiny baby Gabriel. Hoping to find the troubled teen before he did something else stupid, the trio raced to his and Silas' apartment and kicked in the door. But Rafe wasn't there. Instead, they found Nina lying on the floor with a bloodied face. She claimed that Rafe did it and then fled!

That, of course, was nowhere near the truth. What really happened was that Nina paid Rafe to leave town and to keep his mouth shut about her being able to walk. And that cut on her cheek? She wanted to make it look good so she told Rosalie to punch her, to which the sassy RN replied, "I thought you'd never ask!"

While Nina soaked in the pity from Silas, Molly cornered Rafe in the parking garage and said that she knew he was doing drugs. He wanted to run away; she didn't want him to, so she climbed in the car. When Dante and Sam showed up, Rafe sped off with Molly riding shotgun. While on the road, he confessed that he killed Dr. Drake's little boy. Molly got that, "whaaaaattt?" look on her face then told him that the only way he'd find peace was to turn himself in. Cue the wailing police siren, as Dante and Sam were in close pursuit!

The more Molly talked, the more anxious Rafe got. Finally, he blurted the truth about the car accident: "Someone put me up to it, all right? They told me to do it!" The next thing you know, Molly screamed, tires screeched and the kids ran head on into a roadblock!

Meanwhile, everyone in town was heading to the park to see fireworks. There was Patrick and Emma, who asked her Daddy if she and Mommy were getting a divorce. Patrick said solemnly, "I think so," and they cried together. Nathan and Maxie passed through the park on the way home. Still attached at the wrist with police handcuffs, their playful bickering ended when skyrockets went off -- both literally and figuratively.

Britt pulled a fast one, getting Liz assigned to work the late shift. With Spencer's help, Britt got invited to watch fireworks with Nikolas. While Spencer was off flirting with Emma, Britt recalled how she met Nikolas last year on July 4th and poured it on with the "I wanted to become an honest, good person because of you" spiel. Spencer came to her aid yet again, telling his Pops that Britt looked cold. Nikolas, being the prince and all, put his arm around her. Score one for the Britch!

On Monday's show, Delia and Ava put their heads together, Michael questions Tracy about Alice and a nasty car accident sends Rafe and Molly to GH! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH's Serricchio Gets A Witchy Woman!

IgnacioSerricchioGal.jpg

On Lifetime's WITCHES OF EAST END, Ignacio Serricchio (ex-Diego, GENERAL HOSPITAL) could be just the thing to make Wendy's ninth and final life count... if she lets him! "She meets him in the [season premiere] episode," offers Executive Producer Maggie Friedman. "He's just a regular, salt of the earth guy, but he totally challenges her." Look for the duo to share sparks from the start, but can she get over her fear of mortality enough to enjoy it?

If the hot EMT can't heal what ails her, at a minimum, he could be quite the distraction! "He's so good and so sexy!" Friedman enthuses of the former soap star. "Mädchen Amick (Wendy) was kind enough to come in and read with different actors who were auditioning for the role, and she and Ignacio just had so much chemistry that we had to snatch him up. They're great together!"

Serricchio will appear for a multi-episode arc beginning Sunday, July 6, at 9:00 p.m. EST. There's a wickedly fun season ahead on WITCHES OF EAST END — for more details, catch Friedman's upcoming Primetime Preview interview in the ABC Soaps In Depth issue that goes on sale Monday, August 8.

Franco Threatens To Reveal Sonny's Big Secret!

SonnyCarlyFranco.jpg

When a Mob godfather and a known serial killer face-off over a woman, you know it's going to get ugly. But when Carly is that coveted woman, you can bet that those idle threats being bandied about won't stay idle for very long!

Much to Sonny's disapproval, Carly had it bad for Franco. She did, however, assure her ex that her current beau could never disrupt their friendship and that she would always be there for Sonny whenever he needed her. That warm-fuzzy sentiment evoked a warm-fuzzy hug, which, of course, Franco appeared just in time to see. He wrinkled his brow, scowled and told Sonny, "I know your secret, too, so maybe I'm somebody you shouldn't mess with!"

Franco's "me cavemen, Carly my woman" tone left her speechless, a feat that doesn't happen all that often! Sonny pretty much told Franco what he could do with his threat, as if pushing him would make him back off. Never! Instead, Franco beelined it to the one person who'd have a teensy problem with the news that Sonny killed A.J. That's right. Hello, Michael!

Sam and Patrick found black paint on a twisted piece of guard railing at the sight of the car accident, scraped it off and brought it to the nearest garage. The mechanic remembered a black sports car coming in the day of the crash but was uncomfortable with giving them the name of the vehicle's owner. It wasn't until Patrick pled with the man, telling him that his premature son died because of the crash that the mechanic relented. He pulled the data up on the computer and walked away so Sam could take a peak at it. When she saw the name the car was registered to, her mouth dropped open and the only words that escaped were, "Oh... my... God."

Michael's ELQ project to turn the old, rundown waterfront buildings into high-end apartments, boutiques and cafes enraged Levi. "We need to fight for the little guy that can't fight for himself! We need to put a stop to this project!" he told Maxie, who was on the fence about his mission. Shortly thereafter, Levi and Maxie showed up at the brownstone and Levi announced to Morgan and Kiki, "We read about your so-called revitalization project in the paper, and we're here to shut it down!"

Monday, Franco is poised to tell Michael the truth about A.J.'s murder, Sam and Patrick discover who owned the car involved in the accident, and Ava enlists Delia in her crazy scheme! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH's "Historical" Guest Star!

DuncanHursleyGH.jpg

If you want a quick glimpse at GENERAL HOSPITAL history, keep your eyes peeled today when Sam and Patrick meet up with a mechanic who has some vital info for the duo. Duncan Hursley, the grandson of GH creators, Frank and Doris Hursley, will be playing the role!

"With the 50th anniversary, I felt a lot of pride in, 'Wow. My [grandparents] created this iconic soap opera,'" Hursley says. "So I reached out to [executive producer] Frank Valentini. He had me come to the studio and said I needed to come back again and he'd get me on the show. I'm a product specialist for Mazda and because of my automotive background, they wanted me to play this mechanic. I had a blast!"

Hursley grew up watching GH, although, at the time, he had no idea of his family connection. "Before I had a consciousness of who my grandfather was, I would come home from kindergarten early and my mom's mom would fix me tea and a sandwich and I'd sit on the floor in the den in front of the TV. My grandmother got very concerned that my mother was going to be so upset because she was discovering that I was starting to follow all of the connections on the soap opera. She was watching GH."

Fast forward to 1990, when he was given a small role with less than five lines of dialogue in a scene with Decker and Dawn. "I didn't realize until I got to the set that they were taping the 7,000th episode," Hursley remembers. "They had a big cake, and the whole cast and crew was assembled. The producer at the time was Joe Hardy. He called me up to do a toast and cut the cake with Emily McLaughlin (ex-Jessie) and John Beradino (ex-Steve). It was so surreal."

Returning to GH after all these years touches Hursley deeply. "When I was at the studio that day," he says wistfully, "I saw my father and grandfather doing a jig."

Robin's Coming Back!

McCulloughShortHair.jpg

Is Kimberly McCullough bringing Robin back to GENERAL HOSPITAL? The fan favorite tweeted a photo last night of a stack of script pages with the note, "A day in the life of a soap actor. Say 'soap-y' I dare you. #notthewholescript #onlymyscenes."

While McCullough didn't specifically say that the script was for GH, the show's executive producer, Frank Valentini, has confirmed to Soaps In Depth that Robin will indeed be back in Port Charles this summer!

Will Patrick and Robin kiss and make up... or actually bring their marriage to an end? Be sure to pick up the next ABC issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale July 7, for more!

Maxie's Custody Heartbreak Continues!

Maxie(2).jpg

That Eat/Pray/Love voyage of self-discovery GENERAL HOSPITAL's Maxie went on obviously didn't include a single seminar called "How To Spot A Manipulator In The Crowd." Levi pulled the wool right down over her eyes to get Nathan in trouble with the court, and she was none the wiser. "How did Judge Walters even find out you lied to him?" she asked Nathan. Well, DUH! Levi's the only other person living in the apartment, Maxie! Was that a blonde moment or what?

Anyway, after reviewing the documents and considering Maxie's heartfelt plea to be a part of her daughter's life, the judge came back and said that her character had not fundamentally improved, therefore, he was returning to his original ruling of not allowing her to see baby Georgie. "She's not ready to be a mother," he said coldly, adding that they'd revisit the matter again in six months.

"I lost Georgie again," Maxie moaned. Levi said the first thing that came to his mind, which was, of course, something stupid: "You need to center yourself and breathe. Breathe." Maxie pulled away and shouted, "I don't want to breathe! I want to scream!" and she ran out. Levi was going to follow her, but Nathan stopped him. "Not so fast, Dunkleman," Nathan McMuscles said. "You're the one responsible for what happened here today."

Sam confessed to Molly that she was kind of ashamed to admit that she was suspicious of Nina. "It was almost like she was too understanding," Sam was embarrassed to note. She didn't want to sound like a monster. Criticizing a wheelchair-bound woman who just woke from a 20-year-coma can leave one with that impression, but Sam's intuition was right on the mark.

At that very moment, Nina was skillfully planting the seed in Silas' head that maybe the fact that Sam was still wearing her wedding ring was a sign that she wasn't over her dead husband. After Nina gave him her blessing to enjoy an evening on the town with his girlfriend, the sadness in Nina's eyes turned to outright evil! She raised herself out of her wheelchair and kicked it across the room! She flashed back to a few months earlier, sneaking into Silas' pitch-black apartment and smashing it to smithereens!

Jordan, meanwhile, demanded to talk to Julian's boss, like, now! "Give me the goods on our boss and we'll protect each other," she said convincingly. Julian was just about to do that when they were interrupted by a rather shady dude named Mickey Diamond, who said, "Our boss sent me." His job was to "make sure the business was running smoothly." And then he sent Julian out of town for a few days. At least he didn't give him a one-way ticket to the Pine Barrens!

Monday, Carly confronts Ava about moving in with Sonny, Maxie turns to her BFF for comfort, Nathan call Levi on his lies and Nina's plotting continues! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Daytime Emmy Awards Preview!

GrahnDiamontEmmyShow.jpg

Fans have lots of questions now that it's been announced that the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are going to be broadcast not on a network or cable outlet, but rather streamed via the Internet at www.daytimeemmys.net beginning at 5:00 p.m. PST on Sunday, June 22. Soaps In Depth spoke to David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards for The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences, about what viewers can expect on the big day!

Soaps In Depth: Will the format be different? Will the show have a time limit?
David Michaels: As I understand it, the plan is for the show to go straight through — there will be no commercial breaks. We're treating it like a live show. It'll run for two hours.

In Depth: There tend to be fewer rules on the Internet about what people can do. Might we see more of a party atmosphere for this show?
Michaels: I'm not sure. It's the same setting room and people, the same party. I don't know if people will feel that they can take advantage of the "no-holds-barred" rules of the Internet or not.

Is Donna Mills Back On GH?

DonnaMillsGH.jpg

Could Donna Mills already be back at GENERAL HOSPITAL taping as Madeline? Yesterday, television personality Sandie Newton, who contributes to Hallmark's HOME & FAMILY, tweeted a photo of herself with good friend Ilene Kristen (Delia) and Mills. Since we already know that Kristen has been taping some GH appearances, Mills' Madeline might be back in town, too! And with daughter Nina out of her coma, it's the perfect time for Madeline to return to the canvas... we're sure Nina has some choice words for the woman who killed her baby and put her in a coma!

We're investigating and will let you know as soon as we uncover any details!

"Dead" Ric Is Alive!

RicIsAlive.jpg

It was a ten-tissue day on Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL, with more tears falling in Port Charles than on Wall Street circa 2008!

Elizabeth and Molly were hit hard by the news of Ric's death. Or, should we say, the kind of death that people on soaps succumb to, which is more like a playing possum, "just kidding!" kind of death. Understandably, Molly was a wreck. "My Dad is dead!" she screamed, throwing herself into Momma Alexis, who matched her daughter tear for tear.

Truth be told, Anna's idea for Ric to fake his death and go into witness protection until they found Julian's boss was really the only thing they could do to protect the people Ric loved. Not that Ric was happy with the plan. In fact, he was fighting mad that it was their only option. When Anna unzipped the body bag and he jumped out, he was one mad hombre. It was torture for him to lay there motionless while his daughter and the woman he loved wept in agony over losing him.

Part of Molly's grief was that she didn't get to say goodbye to him, so Alexis reluctantly brought her to the morgue to say a final farewell. Anna used the old "she shouldn't see her father in that condition" speech on Alexis to keep the teen from seeing that he wasn't dead at all. But, just like any/every wily teenager, Molly snuck in. Hidden behind a door, the very much alive Ric had to listen once again to his little girl fall to pieces. This time, it was he who couldn't stop crying! After everyone turned off the waterworks, he slipped on some scrubs, put on a surgical cap and mask and left, not to be seen or heard from again until... well, until storyline dictates!

Meanwhile, Liz was in her own fog, unable to shake her grief. She had vanished from her shift at the hospital, which threw Obrecht into a tizzy. Obrecht chewed Liz a new one, Liz sassed Dr. O back and when all was said and done, Liz got fired. Nikolas having seen on the TV at The Floating Rib that Ric was shot and killed, raced to GH to comfort and support Liz. Their warm, fuzzy interaction was spotted from afar by Britt, who got "that" look on her face with "that" wicked eyebrow. When Obrecht saw her daughter looking troubled, she asked if she could do something to help. Britt thought a moment and said, "Help me get Nikolas back." Uh oh.

Felix was drippy-eyed, too. Not because of Ric, but because of Sabrina, whose pain over her newborn son's death caused her to go a little bonkers the day before. What a good friend that Felix is. He cried for his BFF's heartache and was rewarded for his sympathetic soul with a bear hug from Lucas in a hospital gown.

Monday, Sonny learns of Ric's death and confronts Anna, Duke has it out with Julian, Rafe is caught in the act, and Patrick -- hold onto your seats Scrubs fans -- admits he thinks his marriage is over! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Oprah Checks In With Benard!

MauriceBenardGal.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL star Maurice Benard (Sonny) will be appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Network series, OPRAH: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?, later this summer!

Back in 2007, Benard and his wife, Paula, were guests on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW in an episode featuring the topic of bipolar disorder. Although the Emmy winner has been outspoken about the mental illness that both he and his character share, Benard rarely appears on talk shows... but who could say no to Oprah?

Now, Soaps In Depth has learned, OWN caught up with the Benards for a segment on WHERE ARE THEY NOW?, the popular series that tracks down the most memorable OPRAH SHOW guests for updates on their lives today.

We will let you know as soon as we get a date confirmed for the Benard family, but in the meantime, all new episodes of OPRAH: WHERE ARE THEY NOW? air every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

Is Miller GH's New Jason?

MillerBurton.jpg

Ever since Billy Miller left the role of Billy at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, there has been speculation that the fan favorite would be snatched up by GENERAL HOSPITAL to take over the part of Jason (previously played by Steve Burton, who is now Y&R's Dylan!). And last night, TV Guide's Michael Logan added some fuel to that particular fire by posting to Twitter: "Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I'm hearing."

When contacted for comment on the possible casting coup, a rep for GH replied simply, "We don't have any info on that." Could the rumor be true? Is Robin going to succeed in saving Jason and bring him back to Port Charles with a slightly different face? Or could Miller be playing someone else? What do you think?

Nina Makes Herself At Home!

SilasNina.jpg

Oh, Nina, Nina, Nina. You're projecting this "sugar and spice and everything nice" kind of air but -- we add with a single raised eyebrow -- we have this sneaking suspicion that there's a little vinegar running through those veins.

Awkward! That's the feeling of every moment alone between Silas and his "not as dead as he thought she was" wife, Nina, on GENERAL HOSPITAL. He's sleeping on the sofa while she snuggles up in his bed. Alone. A fact she attributes to his romantic, gentlemanly nature of wanting to get to know her again after her being in a 20-year coma. Ha! She is either as naïve as a Disney princess or as manipulative as that princess' evil stepmom.

Silas has to fess up about his loving and rather healthy relationship with Sam sooner rather than later. If he's as chicken as all that, maybe something will bring up the topic in a more indirect way. There is one thing that ties him and Sam together that doesn't involve the need for contraception and that is Rafe. Could Rafe's newly discovered addiction to drugs be the catalyst for Silas' truth coming out?

Also on the unhappy home front, there's Ava. Sonny insisted she move into his spacious place until she has her baby... and then he's going to kill her. At least he gave her fair warning, right? And there's no way she can escape, considering he's got Max shadowing her like he was secret service on the POTUS. That might solve one problem for Sonny but it is creating another giant one. Olivia.

Olivia approached Sonny with hopes that they could get along because of their grandchild. And, frankly, she was slowly softening to his charms. Then the door to his house flew open and in walked Ava, shouting, "Honey! I'm home!" For a minute there, Olivia went silent. Yes, she did. If the news that Ava was moving in wasn't twisted enough for Olivia, then the other shoe dropped and she learned Ava was pregnant. Ava kinda got a kick out of the idea of ripping apart this once happy relationship. In fact, she looked rather pleased with herself. Olivia's reaction to Sonny's begging wasn't nearly as happy. "You go to hell!" were her exact words.

Three was most definitely a crowd in Maxie's apartment, too. When Nathan rushed out to answer his phone wearing nothing but water drops and a towel, all was fine. And we do mean fine! Maxie resisted all humanly temptation by keeping her eyes on him above the neck and expressed her supreme gratitude for the way he went out on a limb for her with the judge. Their eyes locked. And they stayed locked. Until Levi interrupted with a "What's going on here?"

After Nathan stepped out of the room to put on some clothes (bummer), Maxie told Levi how Det. Sexypants-less did her a huge favor. Not what Levi wanted to hear. She told him she decided she wanted to see her daughter and how Nathan, basically, lied to the judge to hopefully make that happen. Levi sensed there was something going on between his girlfriend and their other roomie. Although Maxie denied it, Levi was undoubtedly right.

Monday on GH, Nathan reacts to news that his sister/cousin is alive, Nina learns the truth about Rafe and a confrontive Morgan has it out with Sonny and Ava! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

"Fluke" Visits... Luke? Uh Huh!

FlukeVisitsLuke.jpg

Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit, you cannot take your eyes off of Anthony Geary in GENERAL HOSPITAL's Fluke story. And when "fake Luke" came face-to-face with a stoned, cross-eyed, drooling, straightjacketed "real Luke," it was just about as creepy and bizarre as creepy and bizarre gets!

"It's hard to believe that the drugged-out, wasted, broken weakling I see before me is Lucas Lorenzo Spencer... and I'm not," Fluke said, squatting to get eye-to-eye with his buzz-scalped look-alike on the floor of a padded cell. Fluke laid it all out for Luke, telling him how he planned and studied him for years, waiting for the right moment for the switcheroo. But it wasn't until Fluke announced that he had married Tracy and was taking "care of her in the sack" that Luke spoke, stumbling over and salivating as he forced out the words, "You keep your filthy hands off Tracy!"

The more Fluke shared what Spencer was missing in Port Charles, the more Luke teared up. Fluke finally verbalized his objective -- to take over Port Charles and obliterate "that son of a bitch" Sonny Corinthos. As Fluke was about to step out of the cell, Luke asked who he was. With that, Fluke got right in his face and said, "That's the million dollar question."

South of the border down Puerto Rico way, Sonny was holding a gun on Ava, itching to pull the trigger. She grabbed the hand holding the weapon and lowered it to point at her belly. "I'm having your baby, Sonny," she said calmly. She pulled out a pregnancy stick to prove it. Was it his or Morgan's? Not that it mattered. Either way, she was as good as dead. "Listen, you bitch," he shouted ("bitch" was the hot word Friday), "if you're lying, you are dead!" And if she was telling the truth? "You're still dead... nine months from now!" There was only one way to know for sure -- a trip back to PC and a visit to GH!

Ric's hope of having a red hot night in bed with Elizabeth went up in flames when Anna and a few PCPD officers stormed into his Metro Court suite with a warrant to search his room. While he was pleading his case to a shaken and speechless Liz, swearing that he was being framed, one of the cops found a gun. Ric was carted off to jail and Liz rushed to Alexis for help. But when Liz got to the lake house, Alexis wasn't alone. Julian was there; the man that sealed Ric's fate by falsely naming him as the Big Kahuna of the Jerome crime family. After Liz greeted him with a well-deserved "you bastard!" she was rattled to discover that Alexis believed her new boyfriend over her ex-husband and the father of her child. Bummer.

Oh, and there was that little thing about a drunken and depressed Morgan pulling Olivia into a kiss and suggesting they sleep together. He likes older women; she likes younger men. What harm could it do? Olivia was a bit of a party pooper and turned him down. She might want to rethink that!

Next week, Alexis breaks the news to Molly, Sonny begs Morgan for forgiveness and Maxie meets with a judge about her daughter. Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

AMC's Chabert Takes On Real-Life Tale

ChabertColorOfRain.jpg

Lacey Chabert — the actress who, as a 10-year-old, got her television start playing Erica Kane's daughter, Bianca, on ALL MY CHILDREN — takes on the challenging role of a grieving single mother in Hallmark Movie Channel's new feature, The Color Of Rain.

Based on the true events described in Michael and Gina Spehn's best-selling book of the same name, the touching film is about a man and a woman who find new love — and a whole host of other challenges — upon connecting following the tragic deaths of their respective spouses. Chabert was excited by the opportunity to play Gina (opposite MOTIVE's Warren Christie as Michael) in the film. "It came with a great responsibility because I wanted to make them proud of what we were doing," she says of the inspirational story. "I thought it would be something that people could relate to and hopefully also learn from. I was really honored to be a part of it."

Chabert, who happened to be preparing for her own wedding during filming, couldn't help but take a few lessons from the relationship of the couple that the movie is based on. "In getting to know them, I think I've learned that it's important to find the levity in life and situations," the actress concludes. "I was inspired by how they truly live their faith, and the hope and peace that that brings to their life."

Tune in to catch the world premiere of The Color Of Rain on Saturday, May 31, at 9 p.m. EST on Hallmark Movie Channel.

The Jig Is Up, Ava!

FrancoCarlyPhone.jpg

Attention, Ava Jerome! You might want to slip off those sexy sling back sandals and lace up your running shoes because Sonny is coming after you and he is not happy!

The arrest of Julian Jerome for drug trafficking and racketeering was all over the news. With him locked up behind bars, Ava was out of harm's way and safe to return to Port Charles. At least, that's the way her day began!

Franco and Carly returned from their visit to see Spinelli in Portland with a cleaned up recording from A.J.'s phone that yielded Ava's confession that she killed Connie. Franco wanted to edit out the portion of the recording of Sonny screaming at A.J. and then shooting him before handing it over to the police. Carly, however, made it abundantly clear that was a really bad idea. She reasoned that Ava would no doubt want to swing a deal for her release, so there was nothing to stop her from turning Sonny in for A.J.'s murder.

"Going to the police, that's not our only option. I could give it to Sonny," Carly smirked as she told Shawn. Sure, she'd be handing Ava a death sentence but, eh, who cares? Carly sure didn't. Before day's end, Carly marched into Sonny's office with the thumb drive containing the recording, placed it in his computer and told him to listen to it himself! Oh, next week is gonna be a doozy!

Meanwhile, Julian and Jordan were in adjacent jail cells and good roommates they most definitely were not. He was both fighting mad for being dragged back into the Mob chaos and worried sick about Lucas' condition after being shot in the chest. Julian kicked and screamed and finally was given the right to make a phone call to check on his son. After Anna gave him an update on Lucas, Julian confronted Scotty. Julian got Scotty elected as D.A., and now he was in his pocket. Scotty refused to drop the charges, but Julian begged to differ. "You can..." he said, "and you will!"

Julian was looking for "an out" while Luke was looking for a way to suck him back in! Luke slipped into Lucas' room, where his unconscious nephew was fresh from surgery and hooked up to a respirator. Luke hovered and paced the hospital room and then, finally, walked up to the bed. He grabbed the breathing tube, bent it in half, cutting off Lucas' air and said grimly, "You're going to have to be dead to make the message clear."

Friday's episode wasn't just about people looking to kill other people. T.J. also rejected his mother in a bold, cold manner, and Kevin told Lucy he was divorcing her. Not a happy moment to be seen!

Monday's Memorial Day preemption takes viewers back to the day A.J. was shot, Obrecht had it out with Anna about Faison's disappearance and, yes, a bittersweet Robin montage you cannot miss! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Luke? Luke who?

JulianLuke.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Fake Luke, as we've come to know him, is a creepy, duplicitous, money-hungry, immoral power-loving pervert. But now he's also got murder in mind!

The morning after his wedding night, he's anything but madly in love with his new bride, Tracy. In fact, he was on full-throttle avoidance! His mind was elsewhere, like the drug shipment coming in that night. When Julian called a face-to-face meeting with him, Luke assumed he had news about Ava's whereabouts. Julian did not nor did he want any part if killing her once she was found or the incoming drug shipment. "I quit," he said pointedly. Luke's reaction? "What the hell?"

Julian explained that he now had something to lose and a family to consider. He wants to stand on his own, go legit, as they say. But Luke told him he wasn't going anywhere! Julian stepped in close, got nose-to-nose with him and said that if he wanted to walk, he was going to walk. Period. He wouldn't stand in his way of taking out Sonny and everything he knew about him and his plans would stay between them. Julian asked to shake on it, and they did. But after Julian stepped away, Luke had the look of a murderer in his eye. It was downright scary!

Around the same time, Alexis was with Ric in the lakehous. She had summoned him there to beg him to let Julian out of the organization. Ric insistsed over and over and over again that he wasn't Julian's boss, and it wasn't until he swore on Molly's life that he wasn't working for the Jeromes that Alexis finally believed him! Their heated discussion when she got all soft and girlie-like, admitted that she cares about Julian and hasn't felt that way since... well... since Ric. Aww. After they shared a bear hug and Ric left, there was a knock on the door. It was Luke. There was a load gun in his pocket and his "Hello, Natasha" took on an especially ominous tone.

He wouldn't really kill her to prove a point to Julian, would he? It looks like he might!

Meanwhile, Liz told Nikolas she was moving out of Wyndemere, and that shee was giving Ric another chance. Nik fought her tooth and nail on that brilliant move, but she Liz was adamant that she and Nik had no future. Like, ever. Not even a kiss from the handsome Prince woke her up from her Ric dream!

Next week, Julian calls a family dinner for a big announcement, Maxie receives a court order and Carly and Franco uncover some pretty big news thanks to the help of an old friend. Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Let's Get This Party Started!

LucyNursesBall2014.jpg

A little song, a little dance, sexy young men in their underpants. What more could you want from a charity gala?

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Nurses Ball got underway with a spectacular opening number courtesy of none other than Liesl Obrecht. Surrounded by scantily clad "nurses," she welcomed attendees with her version of "Willkommen" from Cabaret. She deserved a standing ovation but the poor dear got nothing but blank stares and the sound of crickets from the shocked audience.

Brad and Britt were watching the televised show from his apartment while swallowing spoonfuls of vanilla ice cream. It's no surprise that didn't help with their depression. Everyone knows that requires Rocky Road! Anyway, Brad was upset that Felix and Brad arrived together and he wasn't about ready to sit there and pout. He wanted to throw on a tux and head to the ball. Britt was not in the mood to join him but Brad talked her into it.

Meanwhile, Kiki tackled Pink's "Raise Your Glass," surrounded by mirrors, a gazillion balloons plus Liz, T.J., Lucas and Felix, who had some serious moves! Eddie Maine (aka Ned Ashton) then performed Meatloaf's "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth" like a bad boy of rock 'n' roll. If he had worn Eddie Maine's signature black leather pants he would have been badder but, cest le vie.

Amidst all of the musical whoopla, there were lots of awkward moments. Like when Nathan and Maxie locked eyes, he told her she was beautiful, she grinned sheepishly... and then Levi showed up in his flip flops to rain on their parade. Or when Ric told Liz that maybe their date didn't have to be "a one-time thing" and she shot him a "think again" look.

The most unexpected moment came when Lucy introduced the next performer -- Luke Spencer! The lights went down and a profiled silloutte appeared on stage. "I am what I am. I am my own special creation," he sang. There was something both ironic and spooky about the lyrics of the song from La Cage aux Folles as sung by the man who viewers have no idea really is! But the surprise wasn't just Luke's performance. It's what came after it -- he asked Tracy to marry him right there, on the spot. With Lucy officiating, she pronounced them husband and wife, to which Luke thought to himself, "Easy, big guy. Forget these delicious babes for now. You're this close to getting ELQ. Just kiss the damn bride!"

After the bridal bouquet was tossed (and caught by Liz), it was time for a little eye candy. Make that, a lot of eye candy. It was time for Magic Milo And The Magic Wands! Milo, Felix, Lucas, Michael, T.J. and Nathan all shook their bon bons, unbuttoned this and ripped off that until they were in nothing but their skivvies!

Up next, Sonny reaches out to Olivia, Spencer sings for Emma, Luke be working at ELQ after all and... Blackie Parish performs? Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Emmy Nominees React!

thompson.jpg

How did GENERAL HOSPITAL's Daytime Emmy nominees find out that they'd made the final cut? What episode did they submit? Read on to find out!

Jason Thompson (Patrick): "I had a hockey game [the night before]; I got home at 12:30 [a.m.]; I was restless once I got home and I stayed up and did some work. I went to bed at 2:30. I woke up to a bunch of text messages from friends, family and colleagues. It was very nice. It was definitely a nice way to wake up.

"I submitted the episode where Patrick tells Sabrina that he's going to go back to Robin, and then he goes back to his home and tells Robin he's home. It told its own story within the episode. It represents me and the show well. It's always interesting trying to go through those episodes and find the one to send in... I was very comfortable with the one I chose."

Bradford5.jpg

Bradford Anderson (ex-Spinelli): "I was still in bed when I got the news. I set my phone to airplane mode when we go to sleep; have a 2 ½ year old daughter who likes to wake up (early) and a Yorkshire terrier that loves to run around. When I took my phone off airplane mode it was lit up.

"I submitted the day Ellie told Spinelli that he was the father of the baby outside the nursery. It's not every day that you get a circumstance like that. One show does not a year make. Some years you don't get those heightened scenarios. You take the best work that you can think of. I think the Emmy shows that win have to be a combination of a good actor doing good work with heightened material; what sets this day apart from every other day? That was the most dramatic moment I had."

B&B Star Checks In To GH!

RonnMoss.jpg

Daytime vet Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) confirms to Soaps In Depth that he'll be appearing on at least one upcoming episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL (like, maybe today)! He's keeping mum on exactly who he'll be playing and what he'll be doing in Port Charles, but the actor/musician (Moss is a member of the band Player) will be airing during the Nurses Ball so there's speculation that he'll be not just acting on the show, but singing, too!

How'd it all come about? "[GH's headwriter] Ron Carlivati came up with the concept," Moss reveals to In Depth. "He ran it by Frank [Valentini, executive producer]. Everybody loved it!"

The former CBS Daytime star admits that an offer from a rival network surprised him, but adds, "It shows me how savvy the guys are who are running [GH]. I think it's going to be a good payoff for them."

Moss and his new pals at ABC agreed to keep the casting coup under wraps for as long as possible. "We all chose collectively to keep it a secret," he says. "That was kind of the point of it."

It's a bit serendipitous that Moss has landed back at ABC. The actor started out his acting career there in a talent development program prior to landing on B&B. "It was myself, Robin Wright (Kelly, SANTA BARBARA), Arsenio Hall, Emmanuel Lewis (WEBSTER), Emma Samms (ex-Holly, GH), and Gordon Thomson (Mason, SB). We all started out together and then went our separate ways."

Moss didn't feel like a stranger in Port Charles. While he says Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH; ex-Phyllis, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) hadn't started there yet when he shot his scenes, he did see on set many of his former B&B co-stars. "I saw Ian Buchanan (Duke; ex-James, B&B), William deVry (Julian; ex-Storm, B&B), Rick Hearst (Ric; ex-Whip, B&B) and other people I've known for years like Anthony Geary (Luke) and Finola Hughes (Anna)."

Although GH is only a brief appearance, Moss wants his fans to know that he loves being a part of the soap opera world and has no ill will towards the genre. "To blatantly say 'I would never go back to daytime' would be a slap," he declares. "I never said that. But people will read into things what they want to."

Bradford's Back!

Bradford_Anderson64.jpg

Ever since Bradford Anderson's Spinelli left GENERAL HOSPITAL, fans have been hoping for his return, and Soaps In Depth has learned that he willl soon be back! A show rep had no comment, but it's likely that Anderson's return will be a relatively brief one. Now that Maxie's back in town, it's about time for the Port Charles family court to revisit the judge's decision to grant Spinelli sole custody of daughter Georgie. So Anderson will probably appear only long enough to settle that issue once and for all.

We'll keep you updated on further details regarding dates and storyline as we get them!

Michelle Stafford Is GH's Nina!

MichelleStaffordGal.jpg

The casting had been rumored for a while now, but at the end of today's episode it was revealed that Michelle Stafford is playing GENERAL HOSPITAL's Nina! The actress, best known to daytime fans as THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Phyllis, left that role last year and as soon as the character of Nina was mentioned on GH, rumors began flying fast and furious. They were denied on all sides, but clearly that was just in the interest of keeping the secret until Nina could awaken from her coma for an end-of-episode cliffhanger!

With Nina alive, it looks like Madeline isn't a murderer after all, and her eventual appearance in Port Charles will certainly throw quite a monkey wrench into hubby Silas' relationship with Sam! What do you think of the revelation of Nina's true fate and the casting of Emmy winner Stafford in the role?

We'll keep you updated as to his actual airdate and the length of his stint, but look for Juan to pop back into Port Charles sometime in June!

Sex Among The Dead?

CryptSex.jpg

Sex in a dark and dank crypt surrounded by dead bodies and *gasp* spiders is unthinkably creepy, right? If you're leaning in that direction and didn't see Friday's episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL, you might want to head over to ABC.com and check it out. Sonny and Ava made the heinous really hot!

While Sonny and Ava were doing the horizontal tango in the Quartermaine tomb, Patrick, Sabrina and Emma were recovering from their car accident. The father and daughter were pretty shaken up and only had a few contusions to show for it. Sabrina wasn't so lucky. The pain was serious and a sign that something was very wrong with the baby she was carrying. Patrick helped her from the car and to lie down on the side of the road. Moments later, Britt arrived. Although it was way too early for Sabrina to give birth, Britt insisted.

Anna and Nathan were alerted about the accident and rushed to the scene. Once there, Nathan told Anna that judging by the tire marks on the road, it looked like the other vehicle swerved into Patrick's lane and then drove away. Anna tended to her granddaughter, who said nonchalantly, "After the accident, Britt appeared out of nowhere, like magic." Both cops had that "hmm" look on their face. Something was rotten in Denmark, or so it seemed!

While Britt was telling Sabrina to push, Sonny was... well, you know. He and Ava collapsed exhausted onto the cold dirty cement floor, both regretting what they just did. "How could I do it to my son?!" he shouted. Yes, he just schtupped the woman his son loved. It was a mistake, not a proud moment for either him or Ava. As they got dressed, she voiced her concern that there were others that would be hurt if they found out, which they wouldn't because it would never, ever, ever happen again. Sonny agreed.

Just then, from outside the crypt, they heard, "Ava! You out here?!" It was Morgan. Ava and Sonny looked panicked. When Morgan walked in and saw Sonny looking as guilty as can be and Ava wearing a fake smile, he figured out what was going on. Ava began to ramble until Morgan told her rather vociferously to shut up. She denied up and down that nothing happened, while Sonny remained silent. It wasn't until Morgan called his father a pig (oh, yes he did!) that Sonny spoke up. "All right! We slept together! Is that what you want to hear?!" Sonny barked. He is not scoring points with his kids these days!

Next week, Morgan presses Sonny to tell Olivia what he did, Carlos makes a staggering confession and Britt has news about Patrick and Sabrina's baby. Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Interview: Nathan Parsons Leads THE ORIGINALS Pack

Parsons7.jpg

To say that the past few months have been busy ones for beloved GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Nathan Parsons (ex-Ethan) is an understatement. After all, the in-demand actor was recently cast in two red-hot primetime dramas, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES spin-off, THE ORIGINALS, and TRUE BLOOD! On The CW series (which wraps its first season on Tuesday, May 6), he plays Jackson, the leader of the Crescent werewolf pack -- but the versatile thespian will be playing a different kind of beast when he takes over as hunky vampire James when the HBO hit returns on Sunday, June 22, for its final season.

"I got THE ORIGINALS first and actually shot an episode back in December," he tells Soaps In Depth. "I was home on vacation in Texas and thought I was going to stay there and fly out to Atlanta whenever I needed to."

But the universe had other plans for the rising star! "Then I was getting phone calls to fly out to L.A., and suddenly I had the job on TRUE BLOOD," he recalls with a laugh. "I had to fly back to Texas, get my car, get my dog, drive to L.A., start work on TRUE BLOOD, fly to Atlanta for THE ORIGINALS. It's been that way ever since! Both taped simultaneously, so I was flying back and forth."
