    It is not Duke in the body bag..
    The person on the body bag has black hair..

    The nurses ball will be fun…
    I like watching the actors strut their talents (dancing, singing)

    The ball is a GH tradition and luv that FV and RC revived it, its fun, good time entertainment :)

    ((wonder who is in the body bag / better not be Carlos… oh I think Ric is going to kill the fake Billy, the blackmailer))

    People think its Duke but Anna will cover so he can go into hiding.

    Ric’s blackmailer Creepy Guy Pete has blonde hair. Not him! It might be Carlos or Duke.

    Helen Conboy replied

    Not Ric’s blackmailer like I said he has blonde hair but maybe Duke or Carlos. It was so fast it almost looked like Jordan but think it’s Duke. Emma wouldn’t be at Jordan’s service.

    Jeremy replied

    yeah if u pause it, it is Duke’s body guard guy.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    I think you may be right, Jeremy. It’s probably someone who is superfluous to the plot….as fake Jake or the bodyguard.

    Helen Conboy replied

    His name is Pete and his hair is blonde not black also Rick has no reason to kill him since the jig is out and he doesn’t have to pay him anymore money. It’s probably Duke. The scenes for the live shows have Emma at the funeral and Sam and Patrick are there so has to be Duke.

    The man can’t seem to get a break from the people that post on this page. I’m sure it is not an easy job writing for a large cast of characters and being able to satisfy everyone.

    Fanny replied

    Jimh, Can’t believe U pegged it with Michael & Saabrinnnna….
    Please don’t look into UR crystal ball and tell us they R the next
    couple to tie the knot. 4 a while there I thought she’d take her
    leave with Carlos, Wishful thinking I guess.

    Shay replied

    Beyond wishful, Fanny!!!! It has been my greatest desire to be rid of this insipid character since the first day Sappy darkened Port Charles’ doorstep! She is definitely at the top of my “must go” list….along with Phyllina, BrazenHayden, ValChops, Grossalie, Jordan, Alexis, Carlos, TJ and Ric! A spring housecleaning is definitely in order, and a Nurses’ Ball massacre would do the trick quite nicely!

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Im getting rid of that crystal ball…its scarey…now with my latest correct prediction i believe that thing is the tool of the Devil…lol

    CeeCee replied

    That’s a good guess too, jimh. I thought I saw Ron ‘flash’ through the milieu. LOL.

    Linda Elena Tovar was actually excellent. ……credible, emotional, perfect facial expressions…I was impressed. Really !!!!!!

    I’m not interested in any of this since I don’t understand why they are sidelining their Outstanding Lead Actress this way during Sweeps yet again. She’s so criminally under-used, hah pun not intended.

    But I just can’t get excited about GH until Ava comes back. It’s just not as interesting or compelling a show to me without her.

    Wally Kurth (NED) is leaving for Days in May…. I hope they aren’t killing New off! It needs to be someone that doesn’t need to come back… Ned needs to show up now and then (the longer the better), but to kill off yet another Quartermaine, that would terrible!

    Christy replied

    that should have read “I hope they aren’t killing Ned off!”

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    No, not Ned! I love Ned…I love Justin, too….albeit he’s been a bad boy. LOL.
    Do you think he’ll go back to Days for good?
    I do hope, as yourself, Christy, that he will keep doing both shows, as usual.

    CeeCee replied

    I think it’s either fake Jake (as Su says), or Rick. It’s over for him now, isn’t it? I mean, Carly is already on to Rick….all she needs is verification from the patsy he hired.
    There will be a showdown….at noon…LOL.
    Seriously, there are so many who are targeted….Jordan, Duke, fake Jake, Rick; even Hayden, which I doubt. Someone could even, inadvertently, get caught in the maelstrom.

    Reply

    Fanny replied

    It could even be Valerie… Who gets caught in the crossfire.
    Lulu would be pained for all of five minutes and then feel relief,
    guilt and relief again. Unlike Dante who would truly be saddened.

    CeeCee replied

    @Fanny.
    Yeah, I suppose it could be Valerie. But, I think the fact that she moved to Wyndemere Is very telling. You know what I mean, Fanny? Why go through all that trouble if she was going to be killed off. I could go a step further and propose that Valerie was specifically ‘placed’ at the mansion as Nik’s new love interest. Hayden is a passing fancy….I doubt anything serious will come out of it, albeit they are hot together.
    Speaking of Hayden, what a mess! It will soon be known that she is not Rosalie…’gotta’ see this! How will Nik explain himself? LOL.

    I’m in Lulu’s corner, as far as Valerie is concerned. Imagine crashing in your relative’s one-room apartment!….Especially with a stranger….cousin or not, they are basically strangers….very awkward and uncomfortable.

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    No Valerie and Nikolous…Vikolous would be ridicolous…lol

    CeeCee replied

    @jimh.
    Lol. You’re right, Jimh…Vikolous sounds like a disease…!!

    Rebecca1 replied

    I think there could very well be a Valerie and Nicholas; I thought that from the beginning.

    Christy, I didn’t know Wally Kurth’s was leaving! HVe to read up on that. Love the actors and Ned’s one of my favorites. Hopefully he’ll be back soon…

    su0000 replied

    Nik and Valerie will never be couple..
    She is going to be bad one.. A shedevil for sure, wait for it ;)
    Valerie = trouble..

    her and Nik will never fit, she will most likely blackmail Nic after she finds out what he’s up to, that is why she was sent to the castle..

    ohh I love love bad boy Nik.. hot and sexy too!

    CeeCee replied

    @su. I don’t know, Su. Nik came clean. As we saw in the pre-view, he told Liz Jake is Jason. So, Valerie can’t hold that over his head. I do not think Valerie is a baddie.
    As far as gaining control of ELQ, I still believe he has something up his sleeve wit Sloane, yes…..but, for the greater good. JMO.

    Helen Conboy replied

    I’m sorry but it’s Duke. Fake has blonde hair. Like I said before there is a funeral o the live shows. A picture was shown of Emma Patrick Sam Dante and Lulu.

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Helen.
    You are so right. I overlooked the hair color. It must be Duke. We’re there not rumors of his leaving a while back?

    It was great to see ABC running this promo during prime time while DWTS was on. I hope that Anna gets more screen time in May.

    I miss Ava as well but she is no GHs only Leading lady that can act.

    I love what Frank and Ron have done with the show they have to give Finola some screen time and material, she is being wasted in a supporting role.

    I cant wait for the nurses ball!! I quit watching GH for a few years but I don’t fee like I have missed a thing. I grew up watching all the daytime soaps and my favorite s been GH. I have always loved Carly’s role in the show and her relationship with Jason and Sonny. I can’t wait for Jakes real identity to be revealed and I can’t wait for Hayden and Rick to be exposed I’m not really crazy about Jake being with Elizabeth but anyone is better than Hayden.

  14. Lucy D. says:

    I think Duke is going to get killed, but you wouldn’t think that’d be a murder mystery, right? More like Mob fallout.

    Sure Fake Jake could die, but he’s in NYC right now–why would he come back to PC? I don’t think they’d kill Hayden so soon, do you?

    Brad?

    CeeCee replied

    I like both actresses…Michelle, much more. But, Rebecca IS hot. It just annoys me to no end how these great actresses are fucilated, flagellated and pulverized by these below-their-standards roles.
    How does one pick them up, in one piece, after that? Case in point…Cady McClain in the role of Kelly.

    Timmm replied

    Just goes to show you how important writers are. Michelle, who I love was great on Y&R and terrible on GH. She didnt forget how to act she just got handed a terrible character to play. Even she and Franco, which I hate as well, not Roger, just the character, had a thing brewing and its lost its momentum!

    I hope that’s true, Jeremy. Couldn’t stand her at hello…

    “Ellie” from Spinelli / Portland is so refreshing.. and a natural in front of the camera… it’s good to see her back ! what if a coulda woulda shoulda should happen with Nathan ! ?

    LOL… I could just see Ellie and Spinelli’ verbage about Nathan’ bod… and their outright exclamation and befuddle… loss of words

    I wish she would return full time… and, as intimated in the past… that she’s Tracy’ long lost daughter… wouldn’t this be an opportune time… for Jane Elliott.. to act with a natural actor… since it would seem AG is on his way “out” for awhile… hopefully long while

    I saw some spark of ole… in manned up Billy Miller…. w/Sloane…. had me scared and nervosa… LOL… as Sloane was riding Jake Doe to come up with the goods on Julian

    the one thing is how irksome LW’ Carly is BFF’ing it with “Jake” : when did all this chummy get to know each other laugh out loud trusting energy happen?

    I so hope… that GF’ Laura is not returning to “right” Nikolas Cassadine…. he’s near perfect with Hayden… let’s see some dark turns and intrigue with these two… this pairing happened so quickly and, for ,”all” the RIGHT reason…. fans alike must be salivating

    Tyler Christopher is the best thing thats happening in GH

    I was SO hoping… Ned was going to get ELQ back from Michael…. AND… that the switch of Michael allergy medication was found out so quickly… ( yes, i know… fans… are not in tune with this serious turn) it was laugh out loud stuff … hide his emmy

    so he’s kissing Sabrina… I like these two together… but not at Carlos expense… I watched Carlos scenes with Hayden and Jake… and it was all so easy for these actors to assimilate with and for the good of the show… nothing stilted or lacking… by any means… when you’re in a scene… WITH Carlos… I have liked him from the get

    Franco and Nina : GH writers should get Franco back to owning the magazine or newspaper… and Nina.. should get her inheritance back (they co-own)… and these two… with jobs… would be funny and in your face Port Charles… no stone unturned for these two “hated” citizens of … to smolder their winsome personality all over GH… everyone hates them right? report everyone… keep every one guarded… god… I love RH….

    hmmmm : I really do like that Ned is taken with Olivia… it was romantic… dang! he’s a keeper… husband material… a couple to root for…. I dont’ care about Alexis and Julian… and that’s due to the writing of frigidaire Alexis

    keep Sam with Patrick… it didn’t cut any thing more… for any thing to progress with Jake and Sam… the magic is just not their… KM’ Sam is not the right person for Jake

    Ric Lansing… unfortunately… will be found out… Ric and Liz are electric… perhaps it’s Ric himself… I keep pushing for his equal… and that’s… yikes! i’m saying it… Laura Wright could actually find her way back! only… if it’s with Rick Hearst

    i’d be even happier if GH production would feature Brad and Lucas

    I love Bobbi

    I miss Felicia and Mac

    Kevin (Jon Lindsrom) is so sexy

    I honestly believe that the body being secured is that of Julian Jerome. Whether or not he will actually be dead however remains to be seen. This is unrelated but I need to put it out there — characters on GH who are either underused or simply useless. Nina Clay has great potential but has been reduced to playing Franco’s footnote

    Reply

    Jerry replied

    As I was saying before technology prematurely posted my comment, Nina is incessantly displayed as a woman functioning at a level no higher than a preteen. Regardless of her twenty year lack of adult development it’s time for her full utilization. It’s Michelle Stafford for goodness sake. Frank Valentini is daytime perfection, approving great storylines, properly applying show history and nostalgia, and maintaining a can’t miss conviction in audiences, but Lucas and Brad? An utterly boring couple. I realize that neither of the actors is under contract and both are rarely seen but here’s an opportunity to expose gay men as an equally feeling part of humanity and explore the complexities of an “unconventional” relationship. Take a beat from ‘DOOL’ — they’ve got a gay love triangle with more extensions than a Real Housewife. And finally, although further unrelated, Sam and Patrick just don’t seem lovable as a couple. ~
