Before Margo can tell everyone what has happened, Casey begins to trash talk about Adam, which sets Margo off. Upset and struck hard with grief, Margo tells Casey that his brother was killed in an explosion in Afghanistan. Giving the family space, Hunter, Jade and Alison all take leave while the Hughes family try to come to terms on their loss. Casey unable to deal with the news goes up to the hospital roof to think when Alison shows up to comfort him. Back home Tom and Margo decide to hold a memorial service to pay their respects to their son. Luke, Noah and Alison all go to offer support to Casey. As the service is going on, someone by the name of Sgt. Riley Morgan appears and lets the family know that he met Adam while in Afghanistan.

When she ducks down to spy on him she too wonders if Brad is cheating on Katie, especially when she witnesses Brad leaning in to kiss Gina. The minute Katie gets the news, she refuses to tell Brad about being pregnant. Vienna suggests they get away and as Vienna is at home packing, she spill the beans to Henry about Brad straying.. Henry, angry at how Brad is treating Katie heads over and slugs him. After realizing what is going on Brad tells everyone that Gina is a young mother that is looking for potential parents for her baby.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Claudia Zacchara (Sarah Joy Brown) is trying to cover her *** and protect her baby from impending danger from the likes of Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), so she’s looking for someone to help her with her scheming ways. Welcome to Port Charles Dominic Zamprogna.

According to SOAPnet.com, beginning Monday, June 22, viewers can look for Zamprogna to make his “General Hospital” debut as a new character named “____.” What does that blank mean? Well, SOAPnet’s wise writers used two names for the character Mr. Zamprogna will be playing. Is he playing Dominic (named after himself) or is he playing Chris? Either way, look for Zamprogna to mix things up all over the canvas, especially where one Kristina Corinthos (newcomer Lexi Ainsworth) is concerned.

With a career dating back to 1991, 30 year-old Zamprogna is best known for his role as Artreyu in “The Never Ending Story” TV Series. He’s also had number of story arcs on such series as “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues,” “Edgemont,” “Battlestar Galactica,” and “The L Word.” Recently, he appeared in an episode of The CW’s “Smallville” as Bruno Mannheim.

“General Hospital” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet.
