HOLLYWOOD—The soap arena has trouble introducing new characters into the mix, especially enemies, but ABC’s “General Hospital” is doing a stellar job as it sets itself up for the impending November sweeps with the addition of several new and returning faces to the canvas. The entire battle for ELQ is finally coming to a head between Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliott) and A.J. Quartermaine (Sean Kanan) with the bombshell that Kiki (Kristen Alderson) is not Franco’s (Roger Howarth) daughter!
No one knows Derek’s true identity except for Ava, but his former lover Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) knows the face. Surprise, he’s the biological father of Sam (Kelly Monaco). Sam is in a dire situation to find a bone marrow transplant to save her son Danny who is seriously ill. The bombshell has not yet come out of the bag, but the audience is well aware of things.
This forces me to think that Connie/Kate will have a terrible demise, news has already leaked that Sullivan is leaving the “GH” canvas and there’s no better way to eliminate a character than with an explosive death. Which means murder mystery! Kiki will have a difficult choice to make with brothers Michael and Morgan (Bryan Craig) seeking her affections so who will she choose and how exactly will the other brother react to the decision? We all know things won’t be good.
Speaking of villains this is the perfect setting for a mob boss fiasco involving Sonny Corinthos and the Jerome family. Corinthos has controlled Port Charles for quite some time so for that power to be up for grabs may place many lives in peril including Anna (Finola Hughes) and Duke (Ian Buchanan) who are way too familiar with the violent dealings of the family. Audiences should expect plenty of gunfire and dramatic reveals in the coming weeks, like when will Robin (Kimberly McCullough) return to the canvas?
Only her father and Jerry Jacks are aware of her survival, but Luke (Anthony Geary) and Holly (Emma Samms) could be close to discovering the truth thanks to the fact that he’s searching for a cure to his ailment. Luke and Holly were shocked to discover that Jerry Jacks' money for the cure was deposited to the account of Sean Donely (John Reilly) who is expected back on the canvas in the coming weeks. This web of deception is expanding and I can only imagine what will happen next.
