      I very much agree with you Enrique, I have to wonder which one the 3 will be the first to go.

      • lulu

        you are so bitter guys, OLTL will work without them..it is not the first time and it will certainly not be the last time and maybe in a few years if OLTL is still on air they will return as Todd, Starr, John now it is a new adventure for them.

          GH was doing just fine without those three

          if OLTL is still on the air???? huh??? OLTL will survive BECAUSE it is NOT on the air(controlled by ABC/D) OLTL is an internet drama AWAY from ABC/D’s control(thank god). GH is the one who has to worry about its future. Now as long as RH is on OLTL as todd i am happy. I really dont care who the heck he plays on GH so long as i see him on both shows. As for KA and ME well when GH does get cancelled by ABC i hope they OLTL has recasted and doesnt want them. All they had to agree to was tape 4 weeks in their spare time on OLTL and they could have been back on both shows. RH is one SMART businessman He has the best of both worlds AND pleases his fanbase. WAY TO GO MR HOWARTH!!!

      I agree Enrique!!

    I AM HAPPIER THAT TREVOR ST JOHN IS RETURNING TO OLTL HE WAS WHY I STARTED WATCHING GH ,IN HOPES VICTOR WOULD GO AFTER TODD,BUT I’D RATHER SEE HIM WITH TEA ON THE REBOOT OF OLTL. .I WISH KRISTEN N MICHAEL WELL. .RON N FRANK HAVE MADE GH BETTER THAN IT WAS IN YEARS.AND KRIS N MIKE HELPED. AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED RH WASN’T PLAYING TODD ON GH ,SO ,HE IS BETTER OFF PLAYING SOMEONE NEW .BEST TO ALL.

    I am glad that they are coming back! They belong on GH, not a dinky little web series (that films in Connecticut, for God’s sake!). I just hope they pair Kristen’s new character with Michael. She and Chad Duell have hot chemistry.

      How about you do some research before running your mouth with false statements. Clearly you haven’t seen any of OLTL’s new footage, because then you would realize that the production quality is even better than GH. I don’t care where the actors go, but for you to call it a “dinky little web series” is completely insulting, and more importantly it is false. If OLTL is a dinky web series, what does that say about GH since OLTL has better production, more compelling scenes, and actual care and support put into them by Prospect Park rather than GH which is a ticking time bomb on ABC

        i root for BOTH soaps but if these actors want to be on GH i am happy for them now we will see if their new characters will work on the GH canvas..time will tell..that is all.

        • Zach Fisher

          I also root for both. OLTL is always going to be my number 1 show, but I’ve grown really fond of GH this past year and I want to see them succeed too. My point was that OLTL is not going to be some “dinky little” web series, and it will be detrimental to the show to spread such negative and false information.

          • lulu

            I totally agree with you.

      • NanJm

        You know all this from the sneak preview? Anyway there not going to cancel G H if that was the case they would have already done it when they cancelled the others, And even if they did I guess they’d have to start an online soap as well! Don’t be bitter that the best characters from OLTL have gone to GH!!!

  • lulu

    Wow RH is a very busy..between planes, different set, different characters..lucky actor..ha..and by the way i was SO SO sure these actors wanted to stay on GH and they got what they wanted..

  • vicki ross

    To be honest I don’t care where they show up so long as we can see Michael act!

  • TC

    Find a way to bring them back as Starr, John and Todd instead.
