All Roads Lead To Fluke!

TracyDante.jpg

Thirty-seven hundred miles away and Luke Spencer was still the talk of the town... but not in a good way!

Relieved that Lulu was safely home, Tracy threw her arms around her and then almost immediately asked if she had seen Luke. Lulu saw right through Tracy's claim that she and Luke were "better than okay." If that was true, why didn't she know where he was? The more Tracy said, the less Lulu believed. Finally, Tracy admitted the truth -- she hadn't seen Luke since their honeymoon. "It's as if he's become a complete stranger," she mourned.

Dante stepped in, saying he might know what's going on with Luke. "Anna thinks Luke could be the head of the Jerome crime family," he revealed. Tracy was stunned. Then, she was hit with a memory. The night of Nikolas and Britt's engagement party, she saw Julian and Luke together in the Wyndemere stables.

Meanwhile, Patrick and Sam told Alexis they were following a lead about the person who might have put Rafe up to running Patrick's car off the road. They told her their theory about Luke and how Spencer's story fit in. Like Tracy, Alexis remembered something the night of the Wyndemere party. Julian had gotten a text from someone who wanted to meet him right there and then. An hour later, she ran into Tracy looking for Luke, who, like Julian, was nowhere to be found.

Julian was worried sick about Ava, unaware that was hiding out with Morgan at the brownstone. Morgan couldn't wrap his head around the idea that Sonny would kidnap her, drag her off somewhere to have the baby and then kill her. "He can and he will," she shuddered. Although she was determined to get out of town as quickly as possible, she had no plan. Morgan, however, did. "Stay with me! I don't want you to go, Ava!"

Before answering the knock at his door, Julian grabbed a gun. It was a big bruiser of a guy named Kobe, who was sent by Fluke to find Ava. Kobe tried to intimidate Julian into revealing Ava's whereabouts, but Julian really didn't know. He ordered Julian to sweep up after his sister and not only get the goods on Sonny, but also kill Michael! Kobe flashed his brass knuckles like he was going to punch Julian's lights out. Julian, however, was the smarter of the two and got the upper hand!

Jordan marched right past Kobe and into Julian's apartment like she owned the place. Kobe recognized her as the woman who killed Mickey Diamond and, after a rather unpleased exchange of words, he left. Once alone, Julian asked Jordan about Ava. She filled him in on what happened the night before, and he filled her in on what happened with Kobe. "He was here for my sister," Julian began. "Ava was supposed to take out Michael Corinthos and she refused. Now I think he might be on his way there to do it himself."

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Kiki learns that someone wants her mother dead, Michael's life is in danger, and Olivia has a close encounter with Ned! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Is Victor Really Dead?

ThaaoPenghlisWarren.jpg

We saw Obrecht shoot Victor dead at nearly point-blank range. We saw him fall to the floor, only to later regain consciousness long enough to discuss their relationship and -- lest we forget -- detonate the explosives that destroyed Crichton-Clark. What we didn't see was a body, and you know what that means!

The Clock Is Ticking For Ava!

AvaSabrina.jpg

Can you believe Ava Jerome has only been in Port Charles 16 months? That's a mind-blowing fact, considering all the damage she's done to so many. Now, with Sonny's armed henchmen heading in her direction and Sabrina cursing the blonde baddie's unborn baby, it looks as if karma is sneaking up on her fast!

Ava was already on edge when her guard warned her that they caught someone trying to sneak in. Thinking that Sonny was testing their security, she insisted on seeing the intruder. When they ushered in Morgan, a cautious smile crossed her face. Although his tone was nonconfrontive, the conversation quickly got serious. In the end, she assured him that she and Sonny never had "those feelings" and never would. But why all the questions? Was he wondering if there was still a chance for them?

Morgan gently told her that there was no going back. "But," he added quietly, "there may be a way to go forward for me and the baby." He didn't want to get in Dad mode if he wasn't the father so he asked her to consider a paternity test. The fact was, she would not consider it. It was an evasive procedure that she didn't want to risk taking. For what it was worth, she wanted it be his and she wanted him to be a part of its life. "I hope that my mistake won't make you stop loving this baby the way it made you stop loving me," she said tearing up.

Meanwhile, Sabrina was lighting candles, praying to her dead infant son and remembering switching Ava's meds for those that would cause premature labor. "I don't want to sacrifice [Ava's] baby," she said, kneeling in the hospital chapel. "I don't want it to feel pain or never know a mother's love. I know that it's innocent. But so was Gabriel. I'm sorry, my son, but I had to do this. You deserve retribution. And so does Ava."

Franco was basking in the afterglow of a great morning with Carly that left him feeling loved and appreciated. He went on and on, telling Nina that he was never, ever going to doubt Carly again. Armed with knowledge that would have him thinking quite the contrary, Nina was bursting at the seams until she finally jumped out of her wheelchair. "I have something to tell you, and you're not going to like it," she squirmed.

Nina danced around the truth until she couldn't not tell him. "The thing that Rosalie overheard was Kiki tell Morgan that the last thing they needed was for you to find out..." she hedged, "that... Carly and Sonny slept together." Vowing to never be a victim of his paranoia again, Franco insisted that Rosalie misunderstood Kiki. Nina pointed out there was only one way to find out -- ask Kiki for himself!

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Franco forces the truth out of Kiki, Lucy forces Scotty to make a choice, and Robin and Jason head to Port Charles! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH's Parsons Goes To War!

Parsons7.jpg

Fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL's Nathan Parsons (ex-Ethan) may have been disappointed when his role as James on TRUE BLOOD came to an end with the finale of the HBO series. But the talented actor is set to be the lead in POINT OF HONOR, a new family drama pilot for Amazon set during the Civil War from LOST producer Carlton Cuse, reports Deadline.

But that may not be the in-demand actor's only project! Judging from his comments during a podcast interview with E.J. Scott, Parsons may also be returning for Season 2 of The CW's THE ORIGINALS, where he recurred as Jackson, a brooding werewolf. "After my couple days in New Orleans, I'm going through Atlanta to Virginia," he says. (THE ORIGINALS is filmed in Atlanta, and POINT OF HONOR shoots in Virginia.)

As soon as more details on either are released, of course we'll let you know when you'll be able to see him on your televisions again!

The Secrets Of Helena's Return!

Constance_Towers-B.jpg

Who out there really thought that GENERAL HOSPITAL's Helena was dead? Anyone? Bueller? If mere mortals like Jason, Robin and Duke can come back from the dead, surely the Dragon Lady of Port Charles wouldn't find death anything more than a temporary inconvenience.

"I'm just so happy to be back," Constance Towers (Helena) tells Soaps In Depth exclusively. "[Headwriter] Ron Carlivati and [executive producer] Frank Valentini are both wonderful. They've said if they could ever find a way to bring her back, they would. But I thought, 'They shot me through the heart!' There was blood on that beautiful jacket. They ruined it. When your wardrobe goes, you think, 'Maybe they're really serious this time!'"

Firearms And Choke Chains And Syringes... Oh My!

LuluStavros.jpg

On Friday's action-packed GENERAL HOSPITAL... 

Just an hour outside of Port Charles in what seemed to be the epicenter of everything that was evil, Crichton-Clark Clinic, Stavros burst into Victor's office with a "someone just keyed my car" look on his face. In his best imitation of a hissing Lord Voldemort, Stavros wanted to know if it was true that Lulu's embryo "implantation wouldn't bear fruit" unless she was administered hormones. Just a teeny weeny detail Victor left out. Smoke was all but coming out of Stavros' ears, and he went ballistic. After cooling his jets, he realized it was just a minor setback in his plan for Lulu to have his baby. Nothing he couldn't handle... immediately!

Stavros confidently waltzed into the room where Lulu and Dante were chained. This time, Stavros brought someone with him -- a doctor to administer hormones! Lulu called him a "psycho freak," to which he replied, "You really do not... want... to fight me on this. If you do... your husband will receive an injection... (whispered) of the bullet variety." Dante didn't want her to do it. She, however, caved to save her husband's life. They brought Lulu to a bed, as Stavros smiled, "One little prick and my little Lulu will be filled with everlasting joy." (Showtime "at night" dialogue, yes?) Lulu cried and Dante screamed! Stavros had one more surprise -- Lula was leaving with him!

Levi paid Nathan a visit and saw that Maxie was gone. He pointed a gun at Nathan's chest and demanded to know where she was. As if Nathan would tattle on Maxie. Levi left and, instead, went in search of her. Moments later, a guard came in. Rephrase, a stupid guard came in. Nathan got the best of the guy, choked him with his chain, took his door access card and used his keys to take off his handcuffs. Nathan then picked up the guard's gun and headed out to find his damsel in distress!

Maxie found her way to a patient's room. He stared at her with creepy eyes and whispered, "Felicia," and then he grabbed her arm! Needless to say, she was freaked. She ran for the door, and ran smack into Levi! He introduced her to his father, Peter Harrell Sr. The bedridden man said, "Thank you, son, for bringing her to me. Now it's time for her to die."

Anna planted a listening device on Obrecht and told her to get info about the hostages' location from Victor. When Dr. O arrived to see Victor, she told him what he wanted to hear, that Nathan was his son. Nathan burst in and pointed the gun at Victor, demanding to know where Maxie was. Victor calmly said, "Oh come now, Nathan. You're not going to kill your own father."

Monday on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Anna comes in with guns blazing, things heat up between Sam and Patrick, and Maxie and Nathan are reunited! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

GH's Monaco Meets BABY DADDY!

KellyMonacoGal.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL is going to get a little silly! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the ABC Daytime soap will be crossing over with ABC Family comedy BABY DADDY, with Kelly Monaco (Sam) playing an exaggerated version of herself.

In the episode currently slated to air at the beginning of season four in 2015, BABY DADDY character Danny lands a role on GH and enlists best friend (and crush) Riley to help him prepare. But when they get on set, GH superfan Riley loses it and starts to drive Monaco (as herself) up the wall!

We'll let you know when Monaco's episode of BABY DADDY is set to air!

AntonioDancingGal.jpg

Antonio Sabáto Jr. (ex-Jagger, GENERAL HOSPITAL) has taken on two highly demanding jobs — he's the host and active participant of the makeover show FIX IT & FINISH IT and he's learning to dance as a member of the celebrity cast of the new season of DANCING WITH THE STARS.

GH's Christopher Explores His Heritage

TylerChristopherGal.jpg

Shouting Secrets, a film starring GENERAL HOSPITAL's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) as a former football player who finds himself trapped in his Native American community while his estranged brother (The Twilight Saga's Chaske Spencer) finds success outside, is debuting Friday, September 5, at The Autry National Center in Los Angeles.

The screening will also mark the picture's official DVD and VOD release. The slice-of-life drama is centered on the failing health of the brothers' mother, which forces them to reconnect. "Tyler's character resented his brother for writing a supposedly fictional book about them," explains director Korinna Sehringer. "He also deals with some marriage troubles because he's having an affair with a minor."

For a soap star like Christopher, playing that kind of intense family drama in the film festival winner came easily. "[My character] struggles with [the affair] and the legal implications it comes with, as well as the embarrassment and shame to his wife and to his child," the actor offers. "He's trying to find ways to forgive himself and to get the relationship back with his wife he once had."

The film also features Christopher's former GH castmate, Ted King (ex-Alcazar). "Ted plays Dr. Matthews [the physician treating the brothers' mother]," Sehringer reveals. "He's in love with Caitlyn (Tonantzin Carmelo), the Native American doctor at the hospital." Visit the film's official site for more information or to order your copy.

Antonio Sabáto Jr., best known to soap fans as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Jagger, will be performing with professional partner Cheryl Burke. She helped her partners Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith come in first place in two consecutive seasons, so will she do the same for Sabáto?

Billy Miller Is GH's New Jason!

MillerBurton.jpg

It turns out that the rumor was true: Billy Miller is about to join GENERAL HOSPITAL in the role of Jason Morgan! The buzz has been building for a while now that THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum (he played Billy) would be assuming the role vacated by Steve Burton (now Y&R's Dylan). The soap's executive producer, Frank Valentini revealed the news today on Twitter after a playful banter with headwriter Ron Carlivati about some "big" GH news.

"I am really excited to be working with such a talented and acclaimed actor as Billy," Valentini said in a statement. "Our cast is thrilled that he will be joining the GH family, and I know that he will be an amazing addition to our talented cast."

With the presumed-dead Jason's wife, Sam, currently getting involved with Patrick (who wasn't crazy about his own wife, Robin, leaving her family behind to go bring Jason back to life) let's just say that the character's return is going to turn Port Charles upside-down!

Valentini hasn't released details of when we can expect to see Miller first air, but we'll definitely keep you up to date as more information is announced. How do you feel about this casting?

Who Is GH's Peter Harrell?

JudsonScott.jpg

Even the most schooled GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers may have heard the name Peter Harrell on today's episode and thought, "Who?" If that was your reaction to the man from Felicia's past, we're here to fill you in!

Thirty years ago, Frisco came across a ring at a charity auction. Thinking it simply a piece of costume jewelry, he purchased it... only to have Felicia Jones (dressed as a boy, by the way!) try to steal it from beneath his mattress! Almost immediately, sparks flew between the pair. When she injured herself after attempting to flee with the purloined ring, he took her to General Hospital and, thanks to some lurking thugs, realized that the blonde beauty was in danger! Eventually, between bouts of bickering, Felicia revealed that she was an honest-to-gosh Princess, and that the ring was part of a collection. In fact, when paired with a scepter, the ring would reveal the location of the entire treasure trove!

So where, exactly, was the scepter? In the possession of Felicia's ex-fiance, Peter Harrell! It also happened that former WSB big wig Sean Donely and his mistress, Cruz, were hot on the trail of the treasure, too. Turned out that not only was Sean a former WSB leader, he just happened to have an extensive knowledge of Aztec culture! Having been framed (by Peter) for a murder he didn't commit, Luke was laying low at Sean's hacienda while his good pal Robert Scorpio helped clear his name. Cruz eventually left to "care for her ailing mom"... but in reality, she was teaming up with Peter!

Eventually, Peter tricked Felicia into handing over the ring. For those keeping track, this meant the sceptor-bearing baddie was now in possession of everything he needed to claim the treasure! Peter and Donely managed to open the vault and find the treasure. Sean was all set to double-cross Peter. But in the resulting chase through the jungle, Peter fell to his death over a waterfall. Ever the sly fox, Sean made sure the hiding place was secure and acted like he'd never found anything. "Treasure?" he basically asked. "What treasure?"

Except, of course, this being Port Charles... well, who really thinks Peter died from the tumble? I'm gonna guess you're new around these parts...

Before long, Peter showed up in Port Charles again, luring Felicia to an abandoned railroad car. Despite being in love with Frisco and having no interest in her ex, Felicia couldn't resist going to his side after he promised that the treasure could be hers! Felicia called Tony to treat Peter, who revealed to his doc that Sean had the treasure. Unfortunately, before Tony could share this bit of news, he was shot in the head! As for Peter, he managed to escape, fleeing to Brazil!

Maybe Just One More Time!

SonnyCarlyBed.jpg

Oh, that Carly. She's one smart cookie... unless it has to do with Sonny, and then she's deaf, dumb and just about as blind as one woman can be.

That passion-filled night Carly and Sonny spent together doing "you know what" felt all too comfortable for both of them. While Sonny was clear about their special connection, Carly was sailing down that long, wide river known as "De-Nile." She showed up at his office the next day to nip their affair in the bud. In that nonchalant, charmingly cocky way of his he said, "I figured you'd come by eventually." In other words, "You want a second helping of Sonny love? Not a problem, baby."

Carly threw a notepad at him at the mere suggestion that she (*gasp*) liked making love with him. In the bright light of day, she wanted to tell him that she is in love with Franco and she will never sleep with Sonny again. Uh huh. It didn't take much but for Sonny to get up from behind his desk, lock the door, stroll over to her and gaze longingly at her lips for the clothes to start coming off again! Yes, in his office, they got "down to business"!

Nina was wired in that crazy-eyed kind of way. She had been shooed out of the apartment she shares with Silas so he could have a private conversation with Sam and she was fighting mad! Plus, news that Ava was expecting baby number two when Nina had zero young'uns was unthinkable! "Ava has a daughter, and now she has another baby! Me, I don't have any! No babies! Do you get it?!" she asked her bewildered nurse. Nina's baby obsession was off the charts. "If Silas won't give me a baby, I'm gonna find somebody else who will," Nina said confidently. "I don't have to cheat on Silas. There are other ways to get a baby." Someone needs to be very afraid!

While Patrick filled in Sabrina on the truth behind Robin's absence and their split, Sam (who must have gotten the same memo Sabrina did about it being royal blue day in Port Charles) uncovered some important info about the car accident from Rafe's things. She and Silas found amongst the teen's belongings $500 cash and his cell phone. Going through his call long, they spotted a mysterious entry labeled as "D." Conversation led to her growing friendship with Patrick and Silas' commitment to Nina. The chat did not end well, and she left with both of them feeling not so good. When she was gone, Silas found one more item in Rafe's things: a Crichton-Clark business card.

Meanwhile, Ava told Julian that Luke wants her to kill Michael because he ruined Luke's plan to take over ELQ. She couldn't do that because it would devastate Kiki! She didn't understand how Luke could have become such a ruthless criminal. Julian explained it succinctly, "He isn't Luke Spencer."

Monday, Ava vows to keep Kiki safe and word spreads about Maxie and Lulu's kidnapping! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

If you've been online recently (like you are right now!), you might have seen some of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenges that people have been posting, and now GENERAL HOSPITAL's Maurice Benard (Sonny) has joined them!

The viral videos are meant to raise awareness of ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) while also raising money to research a cure, and plenty of famous faces have had a bucket of ice water dumped over their heads for a good cause.

Below you can watch Benard take one for the team with the help of his kids... who chide their pop for halfway chickening out!

Nina Tells Franco About Sonny And Carly's Kiss!

StuckInAnElevator.jpg

A reformed serial killer turned art therapist and a revived coma victim pretending to be wheelchair confined get stuck in an elevator and...

Although that intro sounds like a scene from a Coen Brothers film, it was Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL. Franco and Nina, two of the most unstable people in Port Charles -- and that's saying a lot -- happened to get in the elevator at the same time. And it happened to break down. If you're familiar with GH, you know that it's best to avoid elevators and moving vehicles at all costs.

Anyway, Nina was sugar and spice and everything nice when talking with Silas on her cell phone, but the minute she hung up, she got all Naomi Campbell on Franco and hurled it into the wall. "You don't understand. I was supposed to get pregnant tonight!" she screamed. Ostensibly every day since she woke up from her 20-year coma she thinks, "I should have a baby."

Conversation with Franco led to them talking about Kiki, which led to them talking about Ava, which led to Nina saying, "She's going to get what's coming to her," which led to Franco insinuating that Sonny would "take care of Ava," which (breath) led to Franco mentioning that Ava was pregnant by either Morgan or Sonny! Nina laughed, "Ava sure gets around, doesn't she? So does Sonny, apparently." Franco didn't know what that meant but he sure wanted to find out! He pushed and she finally confessed that she saw Sonny and Carly kissing. Uh... oh...

Meanwhile, Carly answered her front door and there stood Sonny. Smiling. Holding a pizza. What woman could resist that, right? Carly paid for the pizza and gave Sonny what she deemed a very respectable tip. But that's not how he was looking to get paid! He tried to convince her to let him stay, but she dragged him to the door. It was raining and he was going to get all wet and drippy and, well, he talked his way in. No surprise there.

Carly grabbed a bottle of wine and mentioned Olivia. He countered with, "She decided to move on... and that I should, too." Then he shot her one of those, "Hey baby, how you doin'?" looks. She responded with a "Don't even think about going there" look. He smiled. Although she melted a tiny bit, she read his mind like Madame Cleo on the PSYCHIC HOTLINE and said, "Don't even start with the dimples!" Not only did he start, he wanted to finish, too!

Sonny's confidence with women was a complete antithesis of what was going on in Milo's world. He had a heart-to-heart with Felix about someone he was crazy about. An African-American nurse. Poor Felix erroneously thought he was the object of Milo's desire. Not so. It was Epiphany! Little did Milo know, she was crushin' on him, too! Milo got up the guts, went up to Epiph and asked her out. She, of course, said yes. They could not have been cuter!

On Monday's GH, Franco's jealousy reaches an epic level, Nikolas is more confused than ever about his feelings for Britt and Liz, and can/will Carly resist her feelings for Sonny? Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Deshler Opens Up About Shocking GH Exit!

Jimmy_Deshler37509.jpg

Rafe's death may have been a bit of a shock for GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers, but it turns out that it was also a surprise for portrayer Jimmy Deshler, who learned of his character's tragic fate only a few days before they taped the episode! "I guess it was just confidential and they didn't want any of the story getting out," he tells Soaps In Depth, "so I found out the Monday of the week it was happening. I guess it was a surprise to all of us."

Though his time with the soap was brief, the young actor is grateful for the experience. "It's good to have something on your resumé like GH and I did a year and a half of it," he says. "I learned a lot from it. I've been on a set as a guest star, but I've never been a regular part of a show. It was a very good experience."

Deshler admits that he's next considering attending college, possibly at the University Of Southern California, but also auditioning with a focus on hitting the big screen. "I've done guest stars and little roles in films," he muses. "I've kind of set it as my goal to get a feature film and have that be my next project that I work on."

Maxie's Wedding Day Is Here: Will She Or Won't She?

MaxieLevi.jpg

When it comes to love, GENERAL HOSPITAL's Nathan West is like a lava lamp -- he's pretty to look at but he moves kinda slow!

After just about everybody over the age of 12 had been telling him all along, Nathan finally admitted to himself (and to Mac) that he had feelings for Maxie. Wouldn't ya know, he came to this realization on her wedding day to another man! Nathan, being the gentleman that he is, believed it was too late, that Maxie had already made up her mind to marry Levi and that was that. What he didn't know was that the bride's feet were ice cold because her groom was not the man she was pining for!

With the nuptials on the Haunted Star just hours away, Maxie changed into her wedding gown and modeled for her proud mother. There was a knock on the door, and in walked Levi. Felicia quickly covered up Maxie because, you know, it's bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her dress before the ceremony. In this case, oh boy, is it ever! Anyway, Levi reached for Felicia's hand and kissed it, noting the Aztec heirloom on her finger. Felicia mentioned where the remaining treasure was, adding that she traded the necklace with a photographer at the Nurses Ball.

After Levi left, Felicia could tell Maxie wasn't happy and spoke up. When Mac showed up and said he wanted some alone time with Maxie, she made it clear she wasn't in the mood for yet another lecture about Levi. Mac promised there would be no lecture and that he'd give his blessing if that's what she really wanted, but only if she heard him out first. With that, Nathan's secret affection for her was no longer a secret!

Meanwhile, a man walked into the PCPD demanding to see the commissioner, but Nathan was the only one around. The man identified himself as a reporter and said someone broke into his house, hit him over his head and stole his Aztec necklace. Was it a coincidence that just that morning Mac pointed out that Levi kept pandering to Felicia's Aztec heritage? Nathan thought not!

Sonny had a very difficult time forgetting the kiss he planted on Carly the day before, as did Nina, who witnessed it from a distance. As Sonny and Franco argued about Franco keeping his mouth shut about Sonny's secret and Sonny keeping his distance from Carly, Nina rolled up behind them and not-so nonchalantly listened in. After Sonny stepped away, Nina passively but masterfully planted the seed in Franco's head that Sonny and Carly were still "involved." When Franco eventually finds out about that Sonny/Carly smooch, it will not be pretty!

Monday, Levi is caught red-handed, Silas tells Sam about a clue in regards to Patrick's accident and Maxie has an opportunity to admit that she shares Nathan's feelings! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

"We just want to say thanks to all the fans and GH cast/crew for an amazing two years," the twins' mom tweeted. "Unfortunately, the boys have been recasted. We are very thankful for the time we had and wish the new Danny much success and luck."

The show's casting call was for 3- or small 4-year-old twins; the Krings will celebrate their third birthday in January. As for the 3 1/2-year-old Rothweiler brothers, they appeared in a 2013 episode of DISNEY XD's KICKIN' IT.

An Unholy Alliance Gets Ugly!

MickeyJulianAva.jpg

Ava is delusional. She somehow thought that being "rescued" from Sonny by Julian and Mickey would score her a martini and a quiet evening with Mr. Bubble. Oh boy, was she wrong! Mickey pulled a gun on her and threatened to pop her on the spot unless she told him what she had on Sonny. Julian played along with Mickey but then faster than you can say, "fuhgetaboutit," he got the upper hand and got control of the gun.

Mickey admitted that the cocaine they were dealing was laced with heroine to get the druggies hooked quicker. Julian wanted out and Mickey was, like, "yeah, right. Ha. As if." Mickey was shooed away, leaving the Jerome siblings toasting their success. Little did they know that Shawn had obtained security footage from GH's roof, which showed Julian and Mickey helping Ava escaped via a helicopter!

When Shawn left Sonny's office, Olivia walked in... and evicted him! "Good for her!" you say? Darn right! He fought her decision tooth and nail, until she finally admitted (rather loudly) that seeing his lying, cheating face every day was killing her. He said if he could take back that mistake, he would, only for Liv to come back with "you can't unscrew Ava!" Best response ever, right?

Jordan, meanwhile, snuck into Mickey's Metro Court room to search it at the same exact time Shawn had the same idea. They bickered. He pulled her into a toe-curling kiss. She slapped him. He went in for a second helping. And it was hot, folks. Meanwhile, Mickey was, of course, just steps away from the door, telling someone on the phone that he arranged to send Julian a message he wouldn't forget. Mickey then opened the door and... tune in Monday!

Patrick walked into a conversation between Sam and Silas and brought a polar vortex with him. Silas vehemently denied leaking private info to the reporter, which of course, Patrick didn't believe. Sam wondered if, maybe, Nina was behind that exposition. But how? Their private conversation was on the roof, which was only accessible by stairs. And Nina was confined to a wheelchair. There was only one way to find out -- security footage of the roof. After learning from a hospital employee that one of Sonny's associates had it, Sam knew it was time to ask Sonny for help.

Back in Silas' apartment, Nina was doing a happy dance (literally) now that her hubby and Sam split up. It was clear that her twisted mind was cooking up something nasty for Silas when she told Rosalie, "He owes me a baby." Later, Rosalie left and returned with a bottle of pills. Nina squished a tablet and mixed it in Silas' scotch and soda... and down his hatch it went!

Monday, Julian wants to collect from Ava, the effects of Silas' spiked drink hit and Olivia tells Carly in front of Franco that she will always have a thing for Sonny! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

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!

Patrick's Shocking Confession To Sam!

RafeIsBrainDead.jpg

Revenge and guilt trips were the theme of the day on Friday's emotionally charged GENERAL HOSPITAL!

Looking into Sam's big, brown sympathetic eyes, a guilt-ridden Patrick confessed that his darker side tried to lead him into temptation! Locked away in a vacant exam room at GH, he admitted to Sam that although he was focusing on the patient on his operating table -- that would be Rafe, who was suffering from a traumatic brain injury -- there was a voice inside his head telling him that Rafe's life was in his hands. All it would take was one small slip of his hand, one tiny "accidental" cut would cause a blood vessel to burst and Rafe would be gone, just like his little boy, Gabriel. Patrick would have his justice... if he listened to that voice.

Patrick told Sam that he searched his soul and he didn't do it. The blood vessel burst on its own. Rafe's "death" wasn't Patrick's fault. "I didn't falter, Sam. You have to believe me. Tell me you believe me," he pleaded. A tear ran down her face. She believed him, but convincing Silas was a whole other ball game. Patrick cried. Sam cried. They cried together. And they hugged. Tightly. Really tightly.

Silas, meanwhile, was at Rafe's bedside, crushed by both sorrow and rage. "I saw the look in [Patrick's] eyes. At some point in that operation, Drake wanted revenge," he told Nina. She, of course, was there to comfort him and use his time of vulnerability for her own selfish purpose -- to get Sam out of his life! All she had to do was ask one simple question to set the ticking time bomb on Silas and Sam's relationship. "I'm sure [Sam] agrees with your theories regarding Dr. Drake, right?" Nina asked nonchalantly. The answer was most definitely "no" and that lengthy hug in the adjacent room was proof!

While Rafe's condition devastated his family, it gave Tracy, Michael and Morgan hope that, possibly, Rafe's young, healthy heart could be transplanted in the not all that young and not very healthy Alice. As uncomfortable and awkward as it was, Kiki broached the subject with Silas, who confirmed that his nephew's blood type was B-positive, the same as Alice's.

At the same time, Nina sat quietly with Rafe, holding his hand. "What's bad for you is good for me," she said with a satisfied tone. "You're helping me drive a wedge in between Silas and his trailer-trash girlfriend. And you're not going to be able to tell anybody what I'm doing." Suddenly, the supposedly brain-dead teen grabbed her hand forcefully and his eyes opened to stare into hers!

On Monday's GH, Maxie confronts Nathan about the deportation threat against Levi, happy news sends Olivia over the moon and what, if anything, is Rafe's "message" for Nina? Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

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!
