It's a Liason Day! Today is when Jason lays it all out on the table for Elizabeth. I love that he picked her over the biz! If I didn't already love Spinelli, I want to marry him now! There SHOULD be more nods to their history then just Italy. Pay close attention to their dialogue.

More Secrets... well more on Patrick learning that Sonny has a secret son. What's he to do with that information? He has his own family drama to deal with. It looks like Kate thinks she's dying and tells Patrick that she's been keeping this HUGE secret from the man she loves. RUMORS broke that the son MAY NOT be Olivia's child. Who's is it? It APPEARS that he does have a name though. RUMOR has it, Sonny's son is named Dante.
CRAZY CRAZY RUMOR ALERT... and it very well COULD BE fanfic. There is a RUMOR that Bradford Anderson will be in a dual role. These RUMORS say he'll be Dante. Get a salt boulder and check your blood pressure.
We haven't seen the last of him. Olivia's brother SHOULD be coming to Port Chuck. READ MORE

I'm still giddy with the news that Tiffany and Sean are headed back via Night Shift! And the latest word is that Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) will be beamed back to the Mother Ship for Robin and Patrick's wedding! Here's to hoping that Robin's godfather, Sean, makes his way back as well!

Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, General Hospital: Night Shift) has taken to his blog once again. Tristan is giving fans the lowdown on the differences between Night Shift and your typical Daytime Drama while suggesting that the Night Shift format may work for other soaps such as All My Children and One Life to Live as a way to sustain the genre.
Here's a glimpse:
This means that any of the ABC soaps, AMC, OLTL and GH could foster new offspring by using the same formula and format that created NS. By reaching into to the rich historical vaults all of these shows have, and bringing in a familiar face or two to anchor them, a whole new generation of soaps could evolve. NS, although an offspring of GH hasn't paid it any attention at all. And it doesn't need to. GH is the parent but its child can do its own thing. It's not bound by the weight of history created by its parent. Because the most important asset a daytime soap has ……….is its history.
With what NS has demonstrated so far, we maybe looking at a whole new way to save daytime without actually "saving the show".
When thinking of some classic Sean and Tiffany moments for a "Best Of" Blog, how can we not start with their crazy, yet oh so classic Sean and Tiff Nuptials! For this longtime General Hospital fan, I'll never forget the day these two said "I Do."
UPDATE: It looks like Tiffany and Sean will pop in just in time for Night Shift's Second Season Finale. Remember it was said to be so good they had to break it up in two parts! Look for Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) to be reunited with his friends on the finale as well!
ORIGINAL STORY: Don't be surprised if you see General Hospital supercouple Sean and Tiffany Donely (John Reilly and Sharon Wyatt) returning to Port Charles via Night Shift. Strong RUMORS have them coming back to check in on their old pal Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) who is battling colon cancer.
For longtime General Hospital fans this is huge-yet-bittersweet news. One would hope a reunion of this magnitude would play out on the mother-ship and not on the spin-off. Especially when you factor in a significant number of fans who do not get SOAPnet.
Here's hoping Sean and Tiffany get abducted by the mother-ship and return home.
RUMORS of their return have the Donely's returning with their son in tow.
Robert Scorpio has colon cancer and Tristan Rogers has shaved his head to show the effects of his character's treatments. Entertainment Tonight is reporting that the actor decided to take the more "real route" rather than a fake bald head. This storyline hits close to home for Tristan Rogers who lost his father to the same disease his character now has.
Even though Tristan volunteered to go completely bald, storyline needs dictated otherwise. He explains: "There was a problem going completely bald. No one had taken into account that there has to be an appliance put on the back of my head to look like a cut with staples in it, so we couldn't actually shave my head as we had originally thought. I have less than a quarter inch of hair which is close to bald."
