Get a Peek at Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton in Their New General Hospital Roles! (VIDEO)By Jillian Bowe on May 06, 2013
Say goodbye to the so-called Llanview Three and hello to Port Charles' newest residents! Sort of.
In this week’s SOAPnet promo for General Hospital, Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton return to PC as new characters with new looks. Meanwhile, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) turn Crimson's offices into the O.K. Corral.
Viki (Erika Slezak) woke Todd (Roger Howarth) up in the hospital waiting room to let her brother know Dani (Kelley Missal) had come to. She insisted Todd be prepared to tread softly with Dani. Todd tried to change the topic, by congratulating her on sticking it to Dorian (Robin Strasser).
Viki attempted to stop Todd from bursting in on Victor and Dani’s reunion. She told him to think of someone beside himself. It didn’t work. Todd stormed in demanding to see his daughter.
After Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Victor (Trevor St. John) left, Todd asked Dani why she was taking drugs. Dani promptly blamed Todd for everything. She threw what he did to Tea in Port Charles back in his face, along with a slew of other things. READ MORE
Episode 2 of TOLN's One Life to Live picked right up with all the juicy drama from the previous day. Dani’s (Kelley Missal) family and friends rushed to the hospital to check on her status. While they were out in the hall, Victor (Trevor St. John) snuck into her room to be by his "daughters" bedside.
Tea (Florencia Lozano) was shocked to find out from Matthew (Robert Gorrie) that Dani had been doing drugs. Todd (Roger Howarth) lashed out at Tea for her parenting skills. As Todd continued to rip into Tea, Victor burst into the room and threw his brother against the wall.
Victor and Tea’s reunion was incredible. They haven't lost an ounce of their TV magic. However, the rest of the Manning-Lords barely reacted to Victor coming back from the dead. You'd think Viki (Erika Slezak) would have been more concerned with figuring out how her baby brother survived, than having an impromptu editorial meeting with Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu)! READ MORE
Maybe it isn't such a good thing that the mainstream entertainment press is so temporarily enamored by behind-the-scenes soap drama? Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter ran an article chock full of inaccuracies concerning the latest leg in the ABC vs. Prospect Park battle.
For starters, THR's report claims in its subhead that ABC filed a lawsuit over an advertising spot for the new One Life to Live and All My Children. The actual text of the article doesn't say anything about a lawsuit filed by ABC, it instead states:
ABC sources say the network was willing to accept ads within GH because of the licensing relationship, but on April 17 when Prospect submitted an ad for OLTL that included Howarth prominently. ABC refused it -- on the grounds that it would confuse the audience. READ MORE
Despite all the behind-the-scenes, legal cray-cray, it's nice to remember that in 10 days two of our beloved stories are coming back to us. While we let ABC and Prospect Park duke it out, I think it's perfectly okay to celebrate pics like the one above of Roger Howarth and Kassie DePaiva reprising the roles of Todd Manning and Blair Cramer on the new One Life to Live. Did I mention OLTL and All My Children will be back in 10 days???
