General Hospital: Night Shift
Here's the Scoop! 09.19.08
Remember to check the comments, I dropped a lot in there yesterday. Here's what you may have missed.
Re: Steve Burton...No real news, he MAY pop up in a mag commenting on his contract. Nothing seems to match up though. He supposedly told fans his contract was up in Oct '09, the media reported this October and this interview that he SUPPOSEDLY gave says next summer.
Everything that I've seen says that Robert is not being killed off. One thing to note about Sri, he gets the history of GH and I don't see him killing off a legacy character.
Lucky MAY be telling Johnny to stay away, even Lainey told him to back off...that doesn't mean he'll listen. Johnny has be RUMORED to be sneaking Lulu out of Shadybrook and the LATEST says, he sneaks her out to take her to SKate's wedding.
Is Lulu gettting worse? She MAY be, especially when she questions if her mother was ever really there. Also, Laura's own illness has Lulu terrified.
Kate's secrets are coming out and no one will be more pleased than Carly. What about when she finds out that Jax knew all along?
Olivia's RUMORED brother... IF it's her brother coming, I hear he's not a mobbie (color me surprised) but he is a bad dude. 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!
How about a little more Night Shift Scoop? It's the show to watch! Old school 90210 fans might get a kick out of this casting. Remember Brandon's girlfriend Emiy Valentine? The actress' name is Christine Elise and she has been cast as Chad Allen's character's sister. READ MORE
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.
