Soap Opera Mystery Theatre to include HELENA!

Looks like Jacob Young still remembers what it's like to work with the great Connie Towers!

Soap Fan Mystery Theatre will offer "The Unexpected Guest" on Saturday, February 20th at 8PM and Sunday, February 21st at 2PM and 7PM. Jacob's AMC costar Vincent Irizarry (David) will star as Michael Starkwedder -- the unexpected guest in question -- who accidentally drives his car into a ditch on a foggy night and wanders into a nearby house to use the phone. While there, he discovers a woman (legendary actress Stefanie Powers) standing over her dead husband's body
holding a smoking gun ... did she really do it? The Unexpected Guest's reading will also feature Jacob along with longtime Guiding Light star Robert Newman (Josh), AMC's Adam Mayfield (Scott), Constance Towers (Helena, General Hospital), and other special appearances to be announced.

TODAY'S GH: Well, color me surprised. Press releases said ol' Luke would be back Monday. Silly me. Or maybe his HAIR just came back early. ;) He did say BAT!! :me doing the bat dance:
JJ and TG...magic. *Sigh* "Let's just sit here and drink"... Oh, Lucky gets the "dangerous" guy connection with Laura/Luke and Liz/Nik/Jason.

Good for Lulu for laying into NIZ a bit. They need it. Nice scene on the docks with DOMte but the payphone? Really? hmmm.

Michael says he's AJ Son. heh. wow. Did you hear that scream from the inside of a GH storage closet?


GREAT ACTING TODAY!!
Olivia screams "You shot your son"!! in the promos! I do think that we've been predicting that for EONS!!

Anyone else want ZombieClaudia and ZombieAJ to come back to eat up Port Charles?  Heh. It's my dream.

I'll be on later this weekend. Must go decorate my friend's house.  They are bringing baby JANE back from CHINA tonight!! How joyful is that? She's 2 years old and just wonderful.

Congratulations to your friends on their baby Jane. That's wonderful!
Wow. I loved JJ today and he and Tony Geary were just great together. They seemed so natural together and the dialogue was just perfect. And the end of today's show was fabu!!
Good acting all around today.

You know i am sitting here thinking to myself there is a whole lotta hatin on Liz lately. YES rightfully so but also no one ever comments how flipping hateful Sam or especially Carly has been her etire run on the show! Somehow she is redeemed after sleeping with her mothers husband (sam did too) and keeping Aj from Michael all those years was just terrible! And let's not forget the adored characters jason and Sonny are KILLERS. Seriously disgusting.

Jamie said...

The only reason I watch is to watch some JJ. He has been amazing. I love that guy. *sigh*

More Lucky scenes please.

As someone on this site has said before, I think Guza is wanting viewers to not like Liz as much. Helps them get over the Liason fiasco and makes Liz not so perfect....Also makes Sam look a lot better.

I wanted to just smack Michael yesterday! Just in love with Dominic Z's Dominic/Dante and him w/ Lulu. They are fun together.

Just watched the promo for next week. So, Sonny got one son shot and shot the son he didn't know about.....well nominate him for Father of the Year!!!!

And Olivia...I like her but really...keeping your mouth shut to protect your kid gets him close to dead. ARGH!!!

DZ has been hit by a car and shot twice and he hasn't even been in Port Charles a year. Mommy/Daddy I'm home!

AntJoan said...

OK, all you PC folks, didn't you listen to me, I TOLD you to stop spillin' your guts on those docks!! HELLO, it's not a private location, there is ALWAYS someone eavesdropping, anyone in PC longer than about 10 minutes knows that! How stupid is Dante, blowing his own cover!

mosbp2003 said...

AntJoan, I was thinking the same thing! Let's see, Lulu and Johnny both learned he was a cop listening to him on the docks...STOP TALKING ON THE DOCKS ALREADY! I love Domte, but come on, learn from your mistakes...

Karen I don't know if you spoiled this or not yet, but soap opera source is saying its official that Franco will be back for may sweeps

Patti said...

Sporry, karen I think you're by yourself in hoping Claudia comes back! That character was plain awful. Kudos to the actress, as always but the character, stay dead please! I would however, like to see AJ.

Patti said...

Oops,meant sorry!

JJ should be lead actor. all they need is amber tamblin and the 4 musketeers together again. as far as sam and carly have never liked these 2. and I did love lulu's handbag.

Erica said...

Well I think ALL the Spencers did a very good job today.. Luke, Lucky & Lulu were incredible!!!!!
I WISH LAURA WAS THERE!!! It would of made it more complete!!!!
I hope Lucky rips into Nikolas & Liz next week cause even though I love Liz..I think Lucky is right when he says she doesn't know what she wants and Nik dragging the whole Emily death thing is just an excuse because sleeping with your man's brother is just WRONG!!!!!

Re: "I think Guza is wanting viewers to not like Liz as much." ICAM! I think that I had read somewhere that Guza didn't care for RH/Liz too much. I don't know why! I can't believe they are trashing her! I loved her with JJ in the beginning years ago. I stopped watching after Lucky "died" and the new Lucky JY took over the part.

I never saw Liz and Jason's friendship/relationship from years ago, but after I started watching again, when they reintroduced Liason, I LOVED them together. The only person I can see her with if not Jason, is JJ's Lucky.

I just find it strange how the how town is supposed top humiliate and judge Liz. Like the whole town has never cheated before... hell half of em kill people but apparently that's ok. Nik is revolting, don't get me wrong. But things Carly have done in the past far out weight this. Yet she will be all high and mighty towards Luz and urge Jason to seek custody of baby Jake. AJ Quartermaine ring a bell you idiot writers?

I think someone posted a long time ago that Guza didn't find BH Pretty enough to be a lead on a soap. While I find her lovely, she doesn't have that sex apeal Sam may attract. Then again when Becky first joined the show she was a hot little naughty number. U Tube it, the scenes were fantastic. You will find yourself rooting for L&L again I promise.

Anonymous said...

Cat I think that was Frons that didn't find Becky pretty. He much prefers KeMo and her girls.

I'm just happy to see Becky get some airtime. I'm just afraid of the damage they are doing to character. Is Guza going to completely destroy her then send her back to the nurse's station to collect dust. I wonder if this storyline is hurting the actress with her fans. I hope not, because she is really hitting it out of the park IMO.

I loved what you had to say in an earlier post about why isn't the Lisa character Sarah Webber. I think it would have been better. As much as I HATE the Elizabeth/Nikolas storyline, it would have been a good way to connect history. Remember, Lucky (when played by Jacob Young, I believe) fooled around with Elizabeth's sister, just like she's fooling around with his brother. Until you mentioned Sarah, I'd forgotten about that.

The hair isn't Sonny's...it's Dante's!! All that hair talk and DNA talk and father talk Friday, it has to be, 'cause we know it isn't Michael's!

Billo said...

Well maybe someone should mention to Lucky that he slept with Liz's sister so what the hell... even stephen?

Sorry I ain't given up on my girl homegirl Elizabeth (and Lucky too for that matter).

jen said...

If this is true then there really is a god (read on soapzones gossip):

Head writer Bob Guza Jr. meant for Elizabeth to suffer the way she has (through Lucky and Nikolas) so she can be ripe for the plucking with Jason. Guza—in all his infinite self-centeredness—is ignoring their previous time together (under the writers’ strike), and starting fresh by the end of summer.

if guza likes kelly because of her girls, she has been looking for months like she had her implants removed.

PATTI said...

love those rumors jen!
