Oh dear! More exclusive scoop today from TV Guide as we have learned that General Hospital plans to kick off the New Year with a kiddie bus disaster with CGI effects and more!
According to Michael Logan, “Ranging in age from tots to teenagers, on a Christmas vacation bus trip to snow country, the bus is forced to take an unplanned route due to weather trouble and will skid on black ice and flip over during the December 29 cliffhanger. When the show returns January 3, the bus will plummet down a steep ravine!”
But just who is on board? On the adult side, Dr. Steven Webber (Scott Reeves) and Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero), plus Matt Hunter (Jason Cook) and Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms). The kids include Michael, Kristina, Molly, Morgan, Hunter and Cameron. GH’s EP, Jill Farren Phelps had this to say about the next disaster to hit Port Chuck, “This is simply nature taking its course — a chance to give the show a bigger sense of life and death. And there will be death. In fact, two people die — one immediately and one later on as a result of an injury.” The crash is made worse because the kids aren’t wearing seatbelts. “In many states there’s no law requiring them,” Phelps says. “We’ll look at that controversy.” One couple will get closer and one couple gets started,” hints Phelps.
Well, we know for sure that Steve and Olivia have been headed for a romance for awhile….so who do you think dies? Let us know!
