AMC Legend Passes Away


The daytime world has lost one of its true legends. David Canary (Adam/Stuart, ALL MY CHILDREN) passed away of natural causes at the age of 77 on November 16 at The Greens at Cannondale in Wilton, Connecticut.

Canary had a career that spanned stage and screen, but daytime audiences remember him best as Pine Valley twins Adam and Stuart Chandler, roles he played for over a quarter of a century. Over those years, the actor earned 16 Daytime Emmy nominations and took home five for Outstanding Actor.

A private funeral service is being held for immediate family, but a memorial tribute is planned for a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the David Canary Memorial Fund at the Alzheimer's Association. You can find that link by clicking here.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.

GH Star's New Movie!


Ryan Paevey (Nathan) is doing a little moonlighting from GENERAL HOSPITAL in the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy! Naturally the actor will be playing another dashing romantic lead, but this time instead of a cop, Paevey will be portraying a billionaire dog breeder!

Based on the book by Teri Wilson, Unleashing Mr. Darcy is the story of a young woman who thinks the only companion she needs is her dog, but then she meets the charming dog breeder Donovan Darcy. Will he be the man to change her mind?

Actress Frances Fisher (Suzette, GUIDING LIGHT) posted a photo of herself and on-screen "nephew" Paevey on Twitter, and the author herself has taken to social media herself to sing the actor's praises. "Wait until you see Mr. Darcy in his tuxedo!" Wilson tweeted. "Oh my gosh, melt."

The film was shooting in Canada last week, and seems likely to air around Valentine's Day, which would be appropriate. And if you need any more incentive to check it out, author Wilson also tweeted: "I'm watching them shoot the wet Mr. Darcy scene, in which he climbs out of the pool. (Just about every woman on set has thanked me for writing it.) So things are going pretty great here..."

Thompson Says Good-Bye To GH


While we still don't know the airdate for the episode in which Jason will bid farewell to Port Charles, portrayer Jason Thompson has revealed that last Friday, November 20, was his last day on the GENERAL HOSPITAL set.

"Yesterday morning. Nov 20th. 5:55 am," he posted on Instagram alongside a video of a peaceful sunrise. "It was my birthday and also my last day of playing Patrick Drake on GH after 10 years. It was a long, emotional, exhausting, thrilling at time overwhelming day, and I am so grateful for every one of those moments.

"Change can be exciting and scary all at once," he continued. "Shake it up... see what comes out. Thank you for the birthday wishes. Thank you for the well wishes. See you soon."

Whether we'll see him soon on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS if the rumor he's the new Billy Abbott pans out, or if we'll see him on another soap or primetime series, only time will tell. One thing's for sure, we'll let you know what's next for the actor as soon as we know!

GH's New Mystery Man!


UPDATE: Soaps In Depth has learned that Turner will be playing the role of Curtis, a shady character who interacts with Hayden and has an equally sketchy past. Look for the newcomer to make his debut on Monday, November 30!

Donnell Turner's Twitter page has revealed that he's signed a contract with GENERAL HOSPITAL, though not who is is playing. The actor has some daytime experience, with brief stints as doctors on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and DAYS OF OUR LIVES in addition to his primetime appearances on shows like HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER and REVENGE.

At this time there is no additional information about the character or when Turner is scheduled to start appearing on screen, but as soon as we know anything, we'll share the news with you! Feel free to speculate who this mystery man is and who he might be involved with in the comments!

Nathaniel Marston Passes Away


Nathaniel Marston (Al, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) has passed away at the age of 40 from injuries suffered during an automobile accident. His mother, Elizabeth Jackson, broke the news on Facebook.

"Dear family and friends," she wrote, "it is with a heavy heart that I share this devastating news. My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night, was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries. Nathaniel passed away peacefully as I held him in my arms."

If Marston had survived the surgeries, his quality of life would have drastically changed. "He would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic," Jackson wrote. "A condition that Nate would never have been able to tolerate. By God's love and mercy, Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished grandmother Mary Jackson, grandfather John Jackson and my sister, his Aunt Nora."

Memorial services are planned for New York City, Kauai, Hawaii, and Gerlach, Nevada. Our thoughts are with his loved ones as this difficult time.

Marston Scheduled For Another Surgery Today


According to his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is scheduled for another surgery later today, pending the results of a brain scan. There is a fluid build-up in his skull due to the brain shearing injury, and his doctors want to alleviate the pressure by drilling two small holes in his skull. Yet because Marston has been much more alert the past few days than he had been, "[the doctors] will perform a brain scan on Wednesday prior to surgery to see if the fluid has begun to dissipate on its own," wrote Jackson. "If, in fact, the fluid is dissipating on its own, surgery will be cancelled... So let's continue to pray that this surgery will not be necessary."

Jackson went on to detail several other "miracles" that the family has been given in the days since her son's accident, starting with how having been thrown from the cab of his pickup truck actually saved Marston's life. "Had he stayed inside, he would have been taken out in a million pieces," she explained. "The truck looks like it went through a crusher. This did not happen, and Nathaniel does not have a visible cut or bruise on his face, hands or feet. He has a few minor abrasions on his legs. How does this happen to a man who went through a windshield? God's will and love, that's how."

Thompson Confirms GH Exit!


After weeks of speculation, Jason Thompson (Patrick) took to Instagram Friday to finally confirm his exit from GENERAL HOSPITAL.

"I have made the difficult decision to bid farewell to a character I love playing for over 10 years," Thompson posted late Friday afternoon. "It was not an easy decision but I felt like it's time to hang up Doctor Drake's white coat and scrubs.

"I want to thank [executive producer] Frank Valentini, [ABC executive vice-president] Vicki Dummer and [ABC president] Paul Lee for their support and appreciate their understanding," he continued. "To everyone at ABC, the GH crew, producers, writers, directors, my beloved classmates and those in my home away from home, the makeup room, I can't possibly begin to tell you what you mean to me.

"Most importantly I would like to thank the fans," he concluded. "GH changed my life and I have you to thank for that. I am forever grateful for your love and support and for embracing me and this character all these years. I mean these words from the bottom of my heart: GH is family to me, and I'll miss all of you dearly."

Speculation was already flying fast and furious when news broke that Kimberly McCullough (Robin) was returning to GH, leading fans to suspect she was being used to usher Thompson's character off the canvas. And now, the actor has made it official.

"So grateful for all your love," Thompson added via twitter. "It's a crazy thing, believe me. But truly... Thank you! And we still have great story to tell...hold on!"

More Kevin, Please!


Dr. Kevin Collins, you're a sight for sore eyes, and it's so very nice to see you! GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers may have been wondering were the heck Kevin has been, because if there's one place in the good old U.S. of A. that needs a qualified psychiatrist, it's Port Charles, NY! Anna's session with him today was a good start, but fans are dying to know: Is Kevin here to stay?

"There is a second meeting that we have scheduled, where Anna shows up and I throw her a curve ball, which is pretty significant, I have to say," Jon Lindstrom teases. "I catch her at a moment when she can't help but go along with it. I believe that she's really too far gone to deal with this with a simple conversation."

Lindstrom is well aware of the fans' support and would like to continue to make them happy by popping in and out GH more often. "To be honest, I have no idea [if that's the plan]," he confesses. "We'll just have to see."

Meet GH's New Josslyn!


Carly's daughter, Josslyn, returns to GENERAL HOSPITAL today after an extended vacation visiting her father Jax -- with daytime newcomer Eden McCoy taking over the role from Hannah Nordberg.

"I still can't believe it but please watch me as Josslyn Jacks in my first episode of General Hospital on ABC Wednesday," the teenager announced in a Facebook post on Monday night. "Very grateful to be a part of this amazing cast and show. Much more to come -- I love my GH family already."

Although there's been no comment from GH regarding the recast, Nordberg has been quite busy in the months that she's been absent from the soap. She'll be playing Dolly Parton's best friend in the upcoming NBC movie Coat Of Many Colors (airing in early December) and has a meaty role in the HBO Salem witch trial pilot, THE DEVIL YOU MAY KNOW, where she plays Betty Parris, one of the young girls who accused other villagers of witchcraft.

As for McCoy, she began her career as a model in national commercials and print campaign -- she can currently be seen in the back-to-school campaign for STAPLES -- and has performed in two productions with the Los Angeles Opera. This summer, the 12-year-old appeared in a print ad celebrating Disneyland's 60th anniversary. Welcome to the GH family, Eden!

Look for Ahlberg to make her daytime debut in the episode airing Monday, October 19.

GH Friday Recap: Trapped At Wyndemere!


Hayden recalled overhearing Nikolas say that he tried to have her killed. The odd thing was, it didn't evoke a worried frown on her pretty little face; she smirked! When Nikolas asked what was up, she answered, "I've got big plans for you." Uh, huh. Hey, Nik, if you know what's good for you, call your guards!

Jake and Sam spent time hanging out at Kelly's, talking about his desire to find out his true identity as a wedding gift for Liz. They concluded that their best leads were Nikolas and Hayden, who, as luck would have it, walked into the diner carrying numerous bags after an apparent shopping spree. Sam pointed out to Jake that since Hayden and Nikolas were at Kelly's, that meant they weren't at Wyndemere. Now was the perfect time to for them to snoop through the gothic castle for clues, Scooby and Shaggy-like!

After Jake and Sam left, Hayden revealed to Nik that she couldn't resist wearing a sexy teddy out of the store. After one quick flash of Hayden's cleavage and her signature "if you want this, come and get it" look, Nik paid the check, and they were out the door faster than you can say, "What's for dessert?"

Like the two super sleuths they are, Sam and Jake dodged the Wyndemere security system, guards and house staff to sneak into the main house. They were successfully downloading the contents of Nikolas' computer onto a flash drive when they heard commotion outside in the corridor. It was Nikolas and Hayden, who were feeling frisky. Scrambling for a place to hide, Jake and Sam, climbed out the window and onto a second floor balcony. While Nikolas and Hayden shared a hot kiss and prepared to do the deed on a vacant desktop, Jake and Sam were trapped outside!

Liz was counting the days till she was a bride. As she slipped on a wedding veil, she looked in the mirror and said in disbelief, "This is really happening. Jason and I are getting married." That peaceful smile was about to be wiped off her face because there was a knock at the door. It was Laura. "As somebody who cares about you, I think you're making a terrible mistake," she told her former daughter-in-law. Laura urged Liz to come clean about the secret of Jake's identity, but Liz had her own logic that also had some validity. Laura suggested a psychiatrist for Little Jake, who must be traumatized after being held captive for four years. "Jake is Little Jake's father, and I am his mother, and we are giving our son everything he needs," Liz said firmly... unaware that her young son heard every word!

Assuming that the pregnancy test Nathan found was Valerie's, Dante came down hard on her. She, like the Spencer she is, fought back, blasting him for the accusation. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Dillon heard the conversation. Meanwhile on the Haunted Star, Maxie told Lulu that Dillon was in love with her. Just then, Dillon arrived, armed with what he believed to be the possibility that Valerie was pregnant with Dante's child. He planned on making Lulu aware of her husband's infidelity but, before he could say anything, Lulu told him that she knew he was in love with her. He wanted to prove to her that he -- not Dante -- was the man she deserved. To do so, he pulled her into a passionate kiss!

Monday on GH, Lulu reacts to Dillon's pass, Nina shows Franco a side of her he's never seen, and Jake and Sam attempt an escape from Wyndemere? ! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

John Stamos & Julianne Moore In A New Soap?


When CBS late night talk show host James Corden had two of daytime television's most famous graduates -- John Stamos and Julianne Moore -- as guests on the October 5 episode of THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN, the comedian acted out a hysterical sketch with the man who broke plenty of hearts as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Blackie and the actress who played AS THE WORLD TURNS' Frannie and Sabrina. But what made the bit even funnier is that the dialogue of the break-up scene were all lyrics from Taylor Swift songs!

Check out "James Cardone" and "Juliette Moore" and "John Stamosa" in THE BOLD & THE LYRICAL below!

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!

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!
