"GENERAL HOSPITAL" HOT SHEET SPOILER FOR WK OF OCTOBER 29, 2012

This week on General Hospital, family secrets crawl back from the grave. On Friday, we found out the secret that Monica had been hiding: A.J. is alive! But how? And why is he back now? Can Monica keep him hidden from the rest of the family, particularly a snooping Tracy? Don't expect A.J. to want to stay hidden, either. In fact, a Halloween costume party might be the prime opportunity to re-acquaint himself with Port Charles

With A.J. back in town, all eyes will naturally go to Michael, A.J.'s biological son. Will A.J. go right for Michael and try to start up a relationship again? It's not like Michael and A.J. had the closest relationship when A.J. "died," after all. Get ready for the father-son reunion!

As ever, Todd is tap-dancing as fast as he can, trying to deflect any and all connections to Heather Webber. It's not working so well, and this week, look for Luke to confront Todd. But it's not all bad news for Mr. Manning, as he spends a quiet Halloween evening at home with Carly ... and things get romantic.

The Haunted Star Halloween Party promises to be a source of much drama this week, particularly when Luke accompanies Tracy, and Anna agrees to meet Duke there. Look for Luke and Tracy to continue to snoop into Duke's business, while Anna has no idea that the man she's investigating for Jason's shooting is the man she thinks she's in love with.

All this, plus Patrick gets some unexpected advice from his daughter about his dating prospects, and Maxie's moving out!

Sam Learns the Truth

In the November 5th issue of Soap Opera Digest, it features an article titled, "Sam Learns the Truth about Dan’s Paternity."

On the heels of Jason’s apparent demise, Sam discovers this week that Dan is Jason’s son. “It seemed sort of unnecessarily cruel for Todd to hold back this information with the baby switch all out in the open.” So he finds a way to get the information into Sam’s hands and hope it does not lead back to him. Sam deserves some good news even though it’s bittersweet for her. Steve is present at the moment of the revelation and worries when Sam expresses her conviction that Jason will return to her. Carly and Michael are also holding out hope of Jason’s return but deep down they fear he’s dead. However, Sam feels in her heart that he is alive and is not letting go of that. She’s not going to give up hope until she sees a body.

For more pick up the latest issue of SOD.



Wally Kurth and Robin Christopher Return for Edwards Memorial

Sean Kanan won't be the only familiar face soon traipsing around the Quartermaine living room set on General Hospital. I'm hearing Wally Kurth and Robin Christopher will be reprising their respective roles as Ned Ashton and Skye Chandler Quartermaine for episodes honoring the passing of Edward Quartermaine (the late John Ingle).

Look for Skye to mix things up with Todd (Roger Howarth), Blair (Kassie DePaiva) and Tea (Florencia Lozano) during her visit. What will these past and current residents of Llanview, PA have to talk about?

I was hoping Sean Kanan was returning as AJ! Didn't watch the show when he was on but I read AJ's history on Soap Central and he sounds like a real piece of work!

While watching Heather Webber scenes on youtube last night, I came across a scene with the original Edward Quartermaine, David Lewis. Stuart Damon looked so young! I knew John Ingle had passed but didn't realize the character was still alive on-screen.

Thanks for the spoilers! This is definitly the soap to watch right now. The pace is just right and the stories continue to spin off of each other with ease. Can't wait to hear where AJ has been all these years and why Monica decided to keep it a secret...

The A. J. Games Begin

This week A. J. encounters his now grown son, according to the November 13th issue of Soap Opera Digest. Kanan says we are seeing a guy who is a decade older and ready to except responsibility for his mistakes. He’s also going to go after what he feels is his birthright and building a relationship with Michael is key to his mission. Part of AJ’s motivation is he feels he was deprived of his parental rights by Sonny and Carly. He wants Michael to understand that maybe Sonny and Carly didn’t tell him how things really were. It will create drama with Carly. When Carly sees A. J. for the first time, she hits her head and when she awakes she sees Sonny. Immediately she tells him she saw A J. She heads to docks to think and Michael is there. When Michael begins to question her about AJ she freaks and calls Todd. Carly says she would normally call Jason but he’s not there. RH says he added in the lines, “I have a black shirt on!” which he thought was funny.

For more pick up the latest Soap Opera Digest.

Soaptown Loose Lips 11/4

It's official Helena Cassadine IS returning and has a huge surprise for Luke when she comes back. Helena is a big part of the story connected to Duke. Or is it Duke? While I can not give out details at this time I can say Anders Hove was on the set of GH saying hello to old friends and in town promoting his new series "Sub Species". But it is more? Think "Mission Impossible"......If you are a long time fan of GH then you have realized that Sean Kanan has not skipped a beat. Unfortunately for Monica she may regret the day she helped her son. Is AJ involved with Duke? I will tell you that this is not the old AJ who was spoiled and a drunk. AJ has secrets, lots of them. What I can tell you is to pay attention and follow the money trail. Don't take for granted that all the villains and there are quite a few of them share the same goals. There are some that have memory manipulation and this will be a huge part of the umbrella story, confusing yes, but from what I am being told this storyline will prove a link to GH and tie into the story with spies, memory manipulation experiments and mental patients, the FBI, WSB, DVX, OLTL's rogue and the CIA. Holy Cow Batman!!!! Insiders say when it all comes to a head it will make sense....Lynn Herring coming back to Port Charles is like a heart beat bringing life back. Sabrina and Elizabeth team up to find ways to resurrect the Nurse's Ball and it involves Lucy Coe a very wealthy benefactor. Herring will first air Friday, December 14. Held from 1994-2001, the Nurses' Ball was used as a fundraiser for HIV/AIDS awareness in the fictional city of Port Charles as well in real life. For those viewers who are not familiar with the Nurse's Ball just check out yahoo or Youtube.com for information and clips from those days......The holidays are not far off and once again the Quartermaine's will have a day that will rock their world as well as the viewers......Will it be the end of Sonny? Benard's negotiations appear to be going down to the wire as all negotiations do. I can only say under FV the budget will rule all decisions, so only time will tell.....Coleman on Young and The Restless? Yep Blake Gibbons has gone over to CBS, with no contracts for either network, Gibbons has the luxury to cross back and forth.

http://soaptownusa.com/Loose.html



There have been quite a few familiar faces returning to Port Charles, but this one might not be as welcome as say, AJ, or Robert... That's right, Helena Cassadine is on her way back! Soaps In Depth has learned that Constance Towers is reporting back to work at the GENERAL HOSPITAL set this morning!

Towers isn't talking yet, so we can't do more than speculate about what brings Helena back to the canvas, but rest assured that as soon as we can get any scoop out of her, we'll bring it to you! So stay tuned!

http://abc.soapsindepth.com/2012/10/helenas-back.html



With the return of AJ Quartermaine (Sean Kanan) this past week and the fact that Monica knew all along (did Alan know too?) Port Charles welcomes back another to the fold, Kimberly McCullough is back soon but does she remember anything? On top of that return Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) comes back to Port Charles. Will Robert help find Robin or is he back to give Luke a piece of his mind? Look for Robert and Robin to appear during BIG Novemeber sweeps month!!!

http://soaptownusa.com/index.html



The resurrection of the Nurses' Ball prompts another fan fave return! Lynn Herring will return on December 14 as Lucy Coe, who is sought out for her expertise on the big event. Herring originated the role in 1986 and told Digest recently that she'd "love to slip on Lucy's clothes one more time."

Yes, AJ's return has gotten me sucked into the show. And as you mentioned in the October thread, jbrr, it's moving right along. I'm surprised he's revealed himself to Michael and been seen by Carly already, as I expected him for lurk for at least a week or two. I'm liking the actor who plays Michael. He did a good job in those scenes in which AJ revealed himself. If only Kristin Alderson didn't annoy me in the ways that she does, I might even enjoy the Michael/Starr pairing.

Really cool to see that "shirt off your back" scene of Monica and Alan's. I don't know when that happened but it reminded me of when I watched the show back in the early 80s. Oh, how I miss the 80s!!!

The Kate/Connie stuff has become groan-worthy. I feel like she's been saying the same thing since I started tuning in a few weeks ago. Always something about being committed! Knowing this is being written by Ron Carlivati, I was hoping it'd be fun like the Jessica/Tess story when I last watched OLTL but it feels a little silly.

Looking forward to Heather coming out of her coma but I'm guessing it's going to be awhile.

I'm still waiting to decide on the AJ story -- since I didn't watch in the 80's, I'm not familiar with his background. The actor playing Michael is doing an excellent job.

I have grown a little tired of entire Maxie/Spinelli -- I prefer him with Ellie.

I agree Kate/Connie is groan worthy!! Johnny is being dragged even further into a black hole with her!!

It is ridiculous that they are having Elizabeth mourn over Jason for this long.

Good Wednesday show! Really enjoyed the Michael/Carly scenes. The kid playing Michael continues to impress me. AJ and Monica were pretty good, too. A nice mother/son chemistry between the two actors.

I don't know much of what's going on with Robin but I was getting close to the edge of my seat with the back and forth of Patrick going to get on that phone. I'm guessing Duke is holding her there against her will.

And while I'm usually annoyed with the OLTL characters on this show, I liked the Todd/Starr scenes.

Tracy walking in to find AJ in the room was good for a chuckle.

I'm loving the AJ return stuff. Its been well done by everyone. They've given us plenty of catch-up dialogue so they've covered all the major points in his backstory. From causing Jasons brain damage, to Carlys shenanigans, to the custody fight, to the meat hook, to the eventual kidnapping of the kids and his "death". I loved that Carly told Michael the truth and then found a sympathetic ear in Todd. Its probably one of the most well executed back from the dead stories I've seen at least in recent history. And as much as Billy Warlock defined the role of AJ, Kanans AJ is definately a more formidable foe for Sonny/Carly. Warlock was forced to play AJ as almost a wimp/victim so seeing a stronger AJ is fun.

Chad Duell is a very talented young actor, hes had quite a few impressive moments since he took over the role of Michael. I think this could end up being some of his best work yet.

Its so nice to see Leslie Charleson getting some work finally. Poor Monica has been on the backburner so long i think she got pushed clear off the stove at some point.

Yes Duke has Robin. Those scenes were very good even my hubby who hates soaps and tries very hard to ignore them, turned from the computer and started watching and asking questions about what was going on. I think I read somewhere that she will "escape" soon but really Duke decides to let her escape. It bothers me that Duke would hurt Robin given the fact they were close when she was little. Love seeing the old Robin flashbacks she was fantastic even back then. I do hope they get her back on canvas for Edwards memorial, their bond was sweet and his last scene was giving Emma the antidote for the toxin.

The Kate stuff is horrible. I skip most of that. Even Johnny who I like is just unappealing now.

I dont like the new doctor lady or the babysitter/whackadoo. I havent bothered to learn their names but they can both exit stage left. I dont mind Ellie but now that KS is back I want Spin/Maxie.

If I had to grade the show right now I think I'd give it a solid B+ maybe even an A-
