As 2013 comes to a close and we are just a week away from the New Year, ABC has released a brand new promo for General Hospital that informs the viewer that there is plenty of drama ahead!

First, Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) are seen cozy in bed, what does the future hold for this reunited couple?   The mob war continues as Sonny (Maurice Benard) warns his son Morgan (Bryan Craig) that a target is on his back as Julian (William deVry) continues his plans to take down the Corinthos clan by any means possible!

And look for catfights galore as Ava (Maura West) gives a very stern warning to Carly (Laura Wright) stating: “I will make it a mission in my life to wipe you off the planet!”  Oh my!  Nothing like seeing two of daytime’s strongest female characters and performers going at it in the New Year!

Watch the latest promo for General Hospital! Then, our very insightful soap fans whom we love, look into your crystal ball and tell us what you think will go down in Port Charles in 2014?

    Y-e-s…the VERY AWESOME Rebecca Herbst in a brand-new storyline for 2014 would be very nice. And, it’s something that is LONG OVERDUE.

    I think Rebecca will be getting a story line as soon as Britt lies come tumbling down on her. Can’t wait.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !! My big wish – is that they make Julian emotionally review his life as he falls for Alexis and his kids. Please, Please, don’t make Alexis like another bad guy. I can’t take that anymore! It’s SO annoying and demeans her intelligence. Very misogynistic. Pass the word lol………..please.

    Reply

    Patrick replied

    LOL. OK

    you got your turn.

    Alexis can advertise frigid dare

    and we’ll look the other way… LOL

    isn’t she the type of character… and god love her… so do I… tough as nails.. smart as a whip… but… when it comes to lovelorn….

    she flies the coop faster then the menfolk

    you know.. honestly… the last “man” on GH to stir desire… lust.. and abandon?

    Joe Scully, 3rd

    LOL… I was so ooh la la.. for him and the women in port charles… I was giddy over the top.. the moon as it were.. that Traci coulda woulda shoulda fallen in LOVE.

    why not make him alive again… and dreamboat hisself to port charles… and snare love and trappings

    LOL

    Alexis can stare down at and god her steely resolve… and pattern her alone for the millionth time… and we’ll never stop rooting for her to get some

    Reply

    Linda Dowell replied

    I loved Joe Scully too – I was so sad when they offed him. And he was great w/Traci, you are correct.

    Yes, they should bring him back!!!

    Sigh.

    The young kids fall immediately – the older people don’t – and don’t succeed (unless Luke’s involved lol) what’s up with that?

    Patrick replied

    some one… please agree with me….

    that.. it’s rather embarrassing… to watch Sonny any more… not for lack of trying… they steered away from mob story… and it was even more painful to watch Sonny… cringe worthy… he’s become filler… it’s back to the mob.

    it’s painfully obvious… that they go this route.. to give Maurice Benard, Sonny, something to act… i’m as tired as Sonny after he machismo’ his mob boss tough guy routine

    oye! vexed at how lame and dull this part of the GH canvas has been

    Reply

    Elizabeth replied

    I wish Sonny would go back to the cool persona he had in his hey day of the mid 1990′s…. remember after the war with Joe Scully Sr. was won and Sonny guaranteed that Luke’s club was no longer in danger because he was going to run his territory with “brains, not guns.” He was totally mellow and sexy, somehow now he is so often a parody of himself. Sad really.

    Patrick replied

    “…he is so often a parody of himself.”

    you said it perfectly. unfortunately, for his fan base… and I’m still hanging in

    He really needs a good woman by his side.

    the letting go of Kelly Sullivan has left a gaping “whole” for the show in itself… and for the actor Maurice Benard. She did it all.

    the only other actress that comes to mind… and no… it’s not Brenda… but…
    Dahlia Salem, ex-Claire Walsh,GH… she was excellent as a Carlino in Another World…

    Sonny needs to romance a lucky Lady

    I don’t see it with Olivia.

    Shay replied

    “Sonny needs to romance a lucky Lady”……Perhaps a jailhouse fling?????? (You know who I mean…what better way to shake that decades-long Faison obsession than with a spicy prison romp ala Mr. Corinthos?) Could be “vundabar!” LOL….

    Charday replied

    Can’t stand the Sonny character. Ready for him to leave GH.

    why not? he was in hiding… as it were… witness protection program’ming… the WSB gives him a face lift… and he works his bodacious bod out…

    and so what… if he’s kissed Carly…

    Carly wants adulation… and promiscuity from every one… Julian is bigger than her.

    so her sired a kid a million years ago….

    stretch your wings… big hot Julian… we love you

    Shay replied

    Well, I suppose Julian could always just “straddle the fence” and keep everyone wondering…..including himself perhaps?????

    kaffe replied

    I think it is a good ideal to make him gay. Will he the first father to be gay on
    A soap??

    And how will Alexis react to this?
    What will Sam and Lucas say?

    I think RC miss the mark with that sceniro…..
    He still can make the character gay if he wanted too!!!

    But I think he kissed Carly and+ he had a baby with Luas mother and Alexis!!

    But I don’t care for Sonny!!!

    But do he have a girlfriend now…no

    That will be interesting!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
    Best wishes for a great 2014, Michael and ALL..

    Looking forward to Carly and Ava facing off!!

    Like the mob action is back, even tho there really is no longer mobs, just two gansta families fighting for territory..

    The Corinthos clan and the Jerome clan fighting much like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s.. (not mobs)

    Looking forward to Patrick and Sabrina reuniting..

    A great 2014 coming our way from GH !!!!

    Harry replied

    Ewww…..Patrick and Sparkle Pony were an un mitigated disaster. Patrick always looked like the trapped wild animal willing to chew off a limb in order to get away from that perky little trap. They has no chemistry, there was no build up to their “romance” and subsequent heart break thus forth most fans are really rooting for Patrick and Robin to stay together. Of course, TM is pregnant in real life and knowing how creatively limited Ron is, he will probably not only have Patrick torn between two women, but torn between two children–oh yawn.

    “Like that the mob action is back, even tho there really is no mobs; just two gangsta families fighting for territory.” Then, “The Corinthos clan and the Jerome clan fighting much like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s (not mob). ” Are you listening to yourself? Your self cancelling, oxymoronic phrasing is ridiculous. If it walks like a mobster, acts like a mobster, then it is a MOBSTER! Yes, Virginia, there is a mob in Port Charles and the ghost of Christmas past (Guza) is back.

    janet replied

    Harry you hit the nail on the head twice. the mobs times 2. and Right now I dislike Patrick so much for watching Robin fight her way back to her family tortures pain needles and threats, when he didn’t stay with his wife , He was torn,the man who couldn’t get the words I DO out of his mouth YUCK.I don’t care if he is in the middle of the Hatfields and the Mc Coys mob war. Re-Ron does it again. makes it sound like Patprick was torn about going home to Robin, and leaving the sparkle pony .I don’t dislike Suebrina, but I want Robin to win. I didn’t hear him say he loved Robin just that he wanted his family back.! I didn’t watch all the Robin gets saved and the Scorpios get their family fight up. to see this garbage they are giving us.Plus losing Tristan. Franken Ron can think what they like but, those ratings didn’t go up because sparkle pony and her lap dog Felix were on, and it wasn’t his wonderful writing. It was Anna , Robert, Robin, Sean we never got to see get his cure. I will give Ron this ,he did let the super spies win. He also made Luke watchable lately I see his face and FF.I was SOOO looking forward to seeing Robin give her godfather Sean Donnely the cure to save him now that would have been something they could advertise.
    Happy Holidays everyone.

    su0000 replied

    I see 3 men in the Corinthos mob, 3 is not a mob..
    Same goes for the Jerome’s ..
    Just near retired leftovers of a GH mob from back in day..

    The 2 fighting families are more like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s than a mob lol ..
    the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s had enough men to be a mob, way more than the Corinthos 3 and the Jerome 3, actually ..

    Anyways! loved the shoot out and looking forward to more from the 6 mobsters lol ..

    Dan replied

    This is the first time in months that I recall the mob being featured front and center on the show, and I don’t mind it at all. When it was featured all day every day back in the Phelps/Guza era, that I didn’t like. But I think the current regime has found a nice balance. I’m enjoying the show more now than I have in years. Hope Frank, Ron and company keep up the great work in 2014!

    Patrick replied

    The “Hatfield & McCoys”

    had… Kevin Costner, Tom Berenger, and thee ultra-fine Mr. Big Love hisself… Bill Paxton…. hows that for spurs and riding the saddle

    umh… GH has little itty bitty Sonny… and on par hot Julian

    Maura VS. Laura is one battle I’ve been dying to see on this show. Two of the show’s strongest actresses and two of the strongest in the whole medium. I am so Team Ava, though!

    Reply

    Paul replied

    I agree Scott, this should be a great battle. I was never familiar with Maura other than reading about her. I liked her almost immediately on GH. She seems to be enjoying playing her character also which makes it more fun for the audience.

    Patrick replied

    Maura West; on General Hospital, has finally caught my attention.

    #1. As the world Turns… Carly… 2 time emmy winner… deserved those accolades… I just had a hard time.. with Carly and Rosanna… debut on the show… as the Snyder farm family was disintegrating and obliterated.. so.. hence.. I didn’t take a true liking to her… be that as it may… I watched ATWT to the very last day…

    #2. Dianne… on Y&R. Nothing to say… even she will admit… it’s all a blur… and not worth the effort… she was wasted and coulda woulda shoulda had something with Nick. she was killed off… Y&R’ fault.

    #3. Ava Jerome… slithered, sauntered, and sensual’ her steamy seduction… OK… exaggeration… but.. she’s relevant… and I, for one.. like the underlying current with Ava and Julian… Ava and Franco… Ava and Morgan… Ava and the Quartermaines… Ava and Silas… Ava and cat on a hot tin roof.. best Carly

    AND: wrtiers! I’m over Kiki! I’m over how dull KA’ Kiki is… get it? to this day… Kiki… has dissed her mother… for the last time… Ava doesn’t need her… yet.. she’ll continue to reach out to her… as this fleshes out evenmoreso her character… it’s KA who needs her… she and dull Michael are window dressing and filler… with Sonny

    Ava adds mystique and tittilation

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    I think her enjoying Ava is what makes her so intriguing to watch. You’re watching an actress excel in her craft in a role she loves playing. Ava is the boss bitch in Port Charles, and I can’t wait to see everyone bowing down to her power.

    Gina replied

    Same here! I wasn’t sure about Ava at first but Maura has made me a believer. She and Julian are a fantastic duo and an epic showdown with Carly is just what the doctor ordered. These two women will kill it!!

    I couldn’t stand Maura’s version of Carley on world turns.hated her she ate the show. Ava she is ok I would love to see her win over Carley. actually she already has. Carley got Franco that’s a lose lose situation/. He set her son up to get raped.Of course Carley also set her other kids to get hurt by Sonny so she is batting a thousand.

    Patrick replied

    for the love of god… for how revered.. “carly” is… she’s not batting a thousand… in my book…

    yes.. I whole heartedly agree with you… with regard to her children… she’s in a losing battle.

    when was the last time.. Carly did any thing ???? of interest.. besides hit the sheets in all the room of the metro court? she uses that room key.. more than her guests… she declares it’s her right… well piss off Carly

    Plus, Carly’s just plain bigger….”Valkyrie” indeed!!!! Someone needs to kick Ava’s butt to the curb……her lack of social graces and just plain bad manners are annoying, like the other day when she traipsed (uninvited) into the Quartermaine mansion, poured herself a drink and made herself to home. Soooo unattractive!

    Nemi Denise R replied

    I like the original Caroline Leigh Benson portrayed by Sarah Joy Brown, LW over acts the role IMO.

    Phil replied

    I disagree about overacting! I cannot comment on the original Carly as I didn’t watch GH at the time that she was on the show. I was an avid GL fan and liked Laura Wright as Cassie, but love her even more here as Carly in GH! Easily one of my favorites…and her chemistry with Roger Howarth is unmatched by anyone except maybe Kelly Monaco and Michael Easton! I will say that I like Sarah Brown as an actress though, but since I did not see the show with her on it, I simply cannot imagine anyone else playing the role. Being that Laura Wright just signed a multi-year contract that will make her the actress who has played the role the longest, I doubt that you will get your wish! Sorry to disappoint… Overacting by the way is the guy who plays Morgan and even worse TJ!

    Linda Dowell replied

    Yes, I love Sarah Joy Brown – will love her forever as Carly. It was her role, genuinely and completely hers.

    Elizabeth replied

    I don’t have anything against Laura Wright – I can see that she is a good actor. I just think she is SO miscast for the role of Carly. Not right physically, no chemistry or believability in any scenes with Jackie Zeman. And the crap with Franco is just appalling.

    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    Sorry, but Laura IS Carly. I’d rather see SJB back as Claudia if anything. But I don’t see a GH return for her, nor do I see Laura leaving a role that is rightfully her’s. She has portrayed it the longest and strongest.

That’s not to say that Brad can’t still be part of the picture: he can move in and play “manny” then they can all be the GH version of “Modern Family!” Seriously, no other guy (especially sweet Milo!) on that show deserves to be dragged down by Sobby….just look at how she ruined poor Patrick…it will only be the same thing all over again no matter who they pair her up with….she’s an absolute albatross! As I said before, even the slovenly Car-LOS! is looking too good for her at this point…

    I am not looking forward to anything mob related, especially with Sonny Corinthos front and center.

    I also think the show is missing a great story opportunity by reuniting Patrick and Robin. I think viewers, myself included naturally, would rather see Robin struggle to move on with her life than see Sabrina move forward without her prince charming. No matter how many scenes Sabrina is featured in, she is NOT central to the show. Robin is a heritage character who grew up on the show and deserves A-Line stories, especially after her resurrection. Sabrina, from her first appearance, was molded into a perfect heroine, in other words, a boring character without sufficient flaws for dramatic tension. It’s too bad because the show needs cultural diversity.

    What am I looking forward to? How about more Cassadines? More Spencers? More hospital drama? I am all for that.

    Sabrina is not key to the central show yet…but will be if her pregnancy story line plays out with Patrick as the father. I think he will go back with Sabrina and raise their baby together. Currently, I don’t think there are an “stable” couples on the show. Patrick and Sabrina have potential to be a couple of stability. To me, there should be at least one couple on the show that would be considered stable. Sabrina was having a sobering and maturing impact on Patrick before Robin came back.

    We’ll see happens….
