( — “General Hospital” Episode Recap – Monday, January 17, 2011.


Lucky is blindsided by Siobhan’s break up wish and demands an explanation.

Instead of short-term vindication, Carly opts for her information bomb to come out publicly – at the wedding. Jason tries to call off the wedding since the Balkan is not dead, but Brenda and Sonny push plans forward. Brenda and Dante continue to discuss the civil case with Theo. The Balkan discovers how his son Aleksander died – and exactly who is responsible. He squeezes his leverage to exert further force on our traitor.

Abby is intercepted by Brandon, who solicits her and taunts her for the recent prostitution bust – just as Carly walks by overhearing. Carly again challenges Abby to do the right thing and stay away from Michael. Abby tells Michael she is in fact a hooker (a lie) in hopes he will stay away for his own good, and Carly confronts Sam for introducing Michael to a stripper.

Sam discusses the fertility procedure with Dr. Kelli Lee.

Johnny warns Lisa that Patrick is onto her regarding the syringe.

On the Next General Hospital…

  • Will Lulu break up with Dante?
  • Michael lashes out at Carly.
  • Molly has an emotional hissy fit, shocking Kristina with behavior so unlike her.

Morgan and Kane Leave ‘AMC’

( – “All My Children’s” Hubbard clan set to lose a few good women.

Debbi Morgan’s on-screen personal leave from “All My Children” began last Friday with Dr. Angela “Angie” Hubbard making plans to visit her daughter, Cassandra, in California. On that same day, the Emmy winning took to the radio waves on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to discuss when she would be back at “AMC.”  Morgan announced that she’s slated to return to tape at “AMC” on February 2. When Soap Opera Network contacted “AMC” earlier this week, a spokesperson concurred Morgan’s statement adding that the actress “will be [back] on air [regularly] in March.” Look for Jesse and Angie’s baby daughter to be born in Hubbard style when Angie returns to our screens.

The forever youthful appearing 54-year old actress also announced to Joyner that her personal leave is due to health issues. The actress revealed that she has been suffering from Lyme disease for sixteen years. Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease usually initially  spread through a tick bite. The most prominent features of the disease are a persistent lethargic feeling and muscle pains. Complications that can arise from the disease include memory and sleep disorders, nerve damage, Lyme arthritis, as well as heart rhythm and vision problems.

Morgan began her daytime career on “AMC” in 1982 and quickly became one half of one of “AMC’s” most popular couples ever & also daytime’s first African-American super couple, Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie. Her daytime career would take her to five other daytime dramas including NBC’s “Generations,” ABC’s “Loving,” “The City,” and “Port Charles,” as well as CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Included in Morgan’s impressive body of work on television and film was a starring role along side Samuel L. Jackson and Lynn Whitfield in the film “Eve’s Bayou” in 1997.

SON wishes Morgan the best as she faces the challenges of her current health status.

Dr. Hubbard’s step-daughter, Natalia, is going away, too. Shannon Kane joined the cast of the ABC daytime drama as Jesse Hubbard’s surprise daughter in October 2008 and will last air on-contract on February 4. The talented actress who seems to be on the cusp of film stardom recently enjoyed a critically acclaimed turn as a prostitute in the Richard Gere vehicle “Brooklyn’s Finest.” As for Natalia’s departure, look for Brot (JR Martinez) and Natalia’s romance to continue long-distance for the time being. Natalia will be moving to a neighboring police department. “AMC” writers are hoping Kane will return for visits so they can keep Natalia’s presence alive in both Brot and the Hubbard’s stories.

    ( — Unlike most former daytime actors, Nathan Fillion is embracing his daytime roots, which is good news for fans of ABC daytime and primetime.

    At least twice in recent weeks, the long-running ABC daytime sudser has paid homage to its former star, who played Joey Buchanan from 1994-97 (and again briefly in 2007), by alluding to his hit primetime show “Castle” in different lines of dialouge.

    In December, it was abusive father Eddie Ford (John Wesley Shipp) who told cops after being arrested that “No, no! This isn’t ‘Traffic.’ I know how this goes, I watch ‘Castle!’” Then there was last week when Fillion’s former on-screen love interest Kelly Cramer (Gina Tognoni) picked up a copy of his primetime alter ego Richard Castle’s book “Naked Heat” (which had his picture on the back of it) at a newsstand, and asked the cashier if he looked familiar to him.

    Now it’s “Castle’s” turn to give a shout out to the show’s loyal daytime fanbase. The show’s Executive Producer Laurie Zaks tells Entertainment Weekly that “OLTL” fans can look forward to a March episode of “Castle” titled “One Life to Lose,” which will feature the murder of a very prominent fictional soap star.

    As for Fillion, he claims in a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter that “I would also love to go back to ‘One Life,’” despite the fact that the soap recently recast the role with Tom Degnan. “They just got a new Joey, the character I played, so I would love to go back and just do a walk-on where Joey’s in the middle of something super-serious, [acts out bumping into him] and says, ‘Oh, hey. Sorry,’ and then just keep waking. I would love to do that… Not even say anything, just an ‘Excuse me.’ And then him go, ‘Wait, was that? No…’ I always think those are hoots.” It is unknown, however, if “One Life to Live” will grant his request.

    ABC announced on January 11 that they were renewing “Castle” for a fourth season, which will begin this fall. Debuting in March 2009, “Castle” also stars Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever, Tamala Jones, and Rueben Santiago-Hudson. It airs Monday nights at 10:01 PM ET/9:01 PM CT on ABC.
