Courtesy/ABC

GH Fans will finally get to see Sean Kanan (AJ Quartermaine) back on the screen again as AJ’s trial finally begins for being the accused in the murder of Connie Falconeri (Kelly Sullivan)!

In this week’s new promo from ABC, the last few weeks of November will really heat up with newly “elected” D.A. Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) trying to put AJ behind bars for good!  But did he really do the crime as new evidence come to light? Or, did Connie write the initials,”AJ” in her blood to indicate that it was Ava Jerome (Maura West) who did the deed?

Elsewhere, Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) in a knock-out wedding dress heads town the aisle to marry Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson)? Will Robin (Kimberly McCullough) get to her beloved hubby in time before the couple say their, “I do’s?”  It’s  a race against time!

So, do you think is the really murderer of Connie Falconeri? Do you think Robin will be able to stop the nuptials of Patrick and Sabrina?  Are you happy to see the murder trial finally begin? Watch the promo after the jump and then weigh-in!

    They have dragged this Robin storyline out so long who cares anymore. My question is will Patrick recognize her the actress has really put on the weight I am not trying to be cruel I took a double take today and filming her from the back is not doing her any favors.

    Saying, “I’m not trying to be rude” doesn’t absolve you from being rude. She’s probably like a size 4 as opposed to the 2 she was before. Don’t be ridiculous.

    From 2 to 4? OH MY GOD.. SHE HAS DOUBLED IN SIZE!!

    I was shocked if it to you guys was being rude so be it!

    The person who killed Connie is the murderer…Seriously, it wont be Ava or A.J….it was the maid Alice(but it was an accident: she grabbed the gun from A.J.and it went off then she blocked it out of her mamory after loosing the gun on the Quartimaine estate where she intended to put it back in the safe! Once A.J. is sentenced to die she’ll suddenly remember and rush to the prison just as A.J. is about to be executed…imo)…whoever it is, its been so long my interest in it is was almost gone!!!

    Wow! Jim you are totally onto something! I am a VERY savvy soap viewer and can pic out twists from miles away. But Alice’s loyalty to AJ at the stockholders meeting…there has to be something to that. We all know that Ron never writes a single scene that doesn’t somehow come into play weeks or months later. The A could very well be Alice. I don’t know her last name or if she even has one. I have been going overall the A names wracking my brain and never even thought of Alice. If that turns out correct…you deserve applause. Lol

    K replied

    Yes, Alice….That would be a twist that only you saw coming.. I like it!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    i type to fast…lol…my second guess would be Jerry Jax…Connie couldve seen him lurking around Port Chuck(even if ill he seemed to get around just fine)recognized him and was goin to report him moments before her A.J. confrontation…Jerry got the gun after A.J. dropped it and left, shot Connie before she could call anyone about seeing him, tossed the gun in the Quartimaine yard and then fled town…AJ initials could be Jax backwards but Connie died b4 she could finish with the X! However, i like my first guess that it was Alice the best since it makes the best sense but AJ as Jax spelled backwards could be a clever twist too! Plus he’s a villian who’ll most likely go to prison anyway for Robins kidnapping exct. and a good way to tie both Robins and Connies stories together!!!

    Sounds good to me also..

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Jerry Jax is my longshot second guess…maybe AJ could be the start of Jax spelled backwards…Connie might have recognized him earlier as he was lurking around Port Chuck.(4 some reason)…he showed up and took the gun after a drunken A.J. dropped it and left…he shot Connie…tossed the gun in the Quartimaine yard…then fled town. But Alice…loyal to A.J…remains my no.1 suspect! and the one that makes sense! It cant be Ava because she is in the middle of the Morgan/Sonny/Julian Story!!!

    Yes jimh brilliant idea that Alice is the killer, I wish I had thought of that— oh wait– I did. LOL. So if anyone is interested how he came up that idea please check out August 26, 2013 :Kelly Sullivan says Farewell to General Hospital and “RIP Connie” for the answer. Look for jimh 3:04 pm comment and then my reply.

    PS adding some of your ideas from your Monica killed AJ theory to my theory that Alice is the killer doesn’t make it cool for you take credit for the idea. Ever since I shared my theory with you I have you seen you bit by bit begin to pass it off as your idea when this topic comes up– so in case you forgot how you got the idea, just consider this a friendly reminder– but fingers crossed RC will think of someone even more unlikely than Alice so we will both be wrong. That would be great, for I love a good surprise ending to a classic — who done it. But like you said it has been so long it was beginning to turn into a classic who cares–

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Yep…you are right Mary SF…you get the credit for the Alice killed Connie…and i hope you accept my sincere apology…when i wrote that i kept hearing Alice in my head and i kinda thought someone mentioned her name long time back but couldnt remember if it was this plot or for something else and didnt look it up like i should have…not to make excuses but iv recently been ill which the doctor claims my medical condition can sometimes cause me some memory lapses which im currently in treatment for…but once you mention the date i checked it out and read our conversation over and realize now someone did mention Alice’s possible involvement in Connies death and it was MARY SF…i even totally forgot about Monica as well and everything i said but im grateful you cleared it up)…my other guess was Jerry Jax now because AJ could be jax backwards but Connie was dieing and didnt write it correctly…she might have seen Jerry lurking in Port Chuck, recognized him and was going to report it but was confronted by A.J.(now i wonder if someone said that too) However, i want it to be Alice…and i want you to recieve the credit for the guess and if it turns out to be Alice and its under another post i will mention you and only you who guessed Alice correctly…again i sincerly apologize and hope you understand i didnt intentionally try to take someone else’s credit for something they thought of first…i might add some of my own ideas but i usually make certain credit goes to that person who mentioned it first. And if you really knew me im the most honest person you’d ever meet(its why i could never be a politician…lol)

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I also dont recall this coming up afterwards…were you say i was taking bit by bit to pass this as my own…where was that at? So i can clear that up)…like ive said i have some medical problems that have caused me some memory lapses…ive had these problems for decades but a recent illness made it all the worse…i dont like to use that as an excuse but my dr. told me that it happens to many people who have the problems like mine can have occasional memory lapses…so if you have the dates of the other times the subject came up again were you said i added bits to it i would like to reread them again…i talked to my dr and he said refreshing my memory could be helpful. i also dont recall the Monica killed A.J. theory…i checked back to Aug. 26th as you mention all i did was add Monica to the suspect list…also what i mention about Alice in this weeks comments is about the same as i mention in response to you in Aug…so i dont see where i added anything new…Also someone below mention Connie killed Kate which was something similar to what i had mention last summer that same month in Aug. were i mention Kate killed Connie(she killed herself) i dont know if the person saw it or not but im going to let that pass. Anyway, i dont know if you were trying to embarrass and humiliate me or not by the way you responded there…i might have felt the same way…All you had to say did you 4get Jimh ect and point the date out because…yes…i actually did…i can maybe remember incidents in my life 40 to 50 yers ago and even a soap plot on some days and completely forget the next…same with writing here…i even 4got i mention id like to see Faison play Santa and wrote it twice until someone pointed it out…Well, i have no hard feelings…i apologized and wrote that you were the one who mentioned Alice first…

    Apology accepted.

    Mary SF replied

    I don’t understand why you are getting so defensive. All I did was point out the idea that Alice might be killer was my idea not yours. Can you imagine how I felt seeing both Johnny and K praising you for your wonderful idea, when I knew it was mine. I did give you the benefit of the doubt and I flat out said if my post if you forgot then to consider my post as a reminder. I am sorry you felt embarrassed by the your error, it was not my intention to embarrassed you.
    However, unaware of your medical issues i could not understand why you wouldn’t correct Johnny or K, and tell them the idea was not originally yours. I was deeply hurt by that omission because you have been one of my favorite people to talk to you on this site and I didn’t want to believe you would try to take credit for my idea—but just in case you were I felt I should let you know I wasn’t cool with it in the kindest way possible.
    I said in my post, I did notice on that August 26 thread when you responded to others you were quick to say you agree with Mary F that it was Alice, however by August 30 under the Thread Good Week for GH and Days, you said ” I originally thought Ava, but I think RC is going to put a twist and make it Alice or Monica”– no mention of it being my idea.
    Again without knowing your medical history I found it hard to believe that you forgot in a span in 4 days whose idea it was. And since prior to that you did give me credit, it made me suspicious, not at the time, but when you didn’t correct Johnny or K and accepted their comments without mentioning me. I had to consider the possibility you might be doing it on purpose.
    So I tired to craft a response that gave you the benefit of the doubt, but also in case you were doing it on purpose to find a kind way of letting you know that I wasn’t cool with it. If I didn’t succeed and I was hurtful. I am sorry for that.
    As for your Monica theory I think it would be under August 27 under the Thread of 4 Fathers Bombshell.
    Again, I regret if you felt I humiliated you, it was no my intention anymore it was your intention to take credit for my idea. You apologized. I accepted, so why don’t we just leave at that.

    Im deeply sorry Mary SF…i wasnt trying to sound defensive…i was…like you said…was trying in a kind way letting you know that i would probably feel the same way if someone did something similiar to me…and seriously i had no intention of taking your Alice idea and making it my own(i only tried to add to it) when anyone can easily go back and check it out and see it wasnt mine…as for your name ommission last summer that was something i agree i shouldve gave you credit for too…like i said i do have medical problems that can cause occasional memory lapses which i had for years but a recent illness in July has caused me an increase in the problem…thats why sometimes i write additional comments to some of my posts or omit peoples names like yours because i sometimes forget what im writing when im writing and i hope meds and other treatments will help fight that problem. Now i didnt mean to sound defensive…i apologize if it came out that way…i never intended to make it sound like your idea or someone else’s was mine…i apologize for ommitting your name last summer… u dont need to apologize to me when cleary im the one in the wrong, and you had no idea of my medical problems, and so i should apologize to you…believe it or not you have been one of my top 5 commenters on this message board and i always enjoy reading your posts…and believe it or not im grateful you corrected me. The second reply was b4 you accepted my apology and i thought your apology came after you read both…i hope in the future we both dont misunderstand each other and we will continue to reply to each other in some of our comments and if i make a mistake or forget to give you or someone else credit feel free to correct me because believe me or not you are helping out with my medical problems and lapses of forgetfulness. and if the killer turns out to be Alice ill make it clear that it was your idea and not mine. I do feel bad if i upset you and i apologize for that…now i can let go and move on.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Alice was Mary SFs guess…i was only adding a few of my ideas of how it might have happen…i apologize for the omission…credit goes to Mary SF…

    jimh…Just wanted to say that I not only enjoy your inventive and creative imaginings for GH storylines, but your encyclopedic knowledge of soaps past and present. You are a treasure, and an asset to this website. It’s always a treat to read your posts and replies. I especially like your fanciful thoughts regarding our mutual favorite, Dr. O. and her equally evil frenemy, Faison…my mild ribbing about the “Christmas scenario” was all in good fun from one fan to another!

    Connie should never have been killed. I’ll go with 90% of what RC/FV do, but I did not like this at all. The fact that the story has been delayed for so long sort of, for me, disrespects the actress and the character.

    “…for me, disrespects the actress and the character.”

    and, me.

    Kelly Sullivan is intelligent… layers… and multi-facets her character….

    A complexity of SMART acting.

    I just love what she did for GH…

    and now… we’re left with dull Sonny and his sons… with trampolina carly… and sorry to see Olivia in the state she’s in…

    Mary SF replied

    How would you feel if they couldn’t get ED for Kristen Dimera again if they went with Kelly? I think she might do justice to that role— or maybe Phyllis on Y&R– just a thought

    Patrick replied

    If you look at the canvas… as a whole: for DAYS

    easy way to say this: ALL good versus evil… as it were…

    The DiMera’s are pivotal in moving story…
    with no Kristen and no Chad… lord knows I still miss Lexie.

    what if they trot out the Kiriakis’ and have Victor and Justin… warlord Salem… with and against Stefano and EJ…

    I doubt this would happen…

    it’s fun to watch EJ and Justin conspire… overthrow… share wit… aplomb for the Serial.

    Kelly Sullivan as a DiMera… heck as Kristen… would work…

    she fascinates me… like no other… with regard to newbies…. Intelligent, smart choices, and sexy without trying.

    if Kelly Sullivan went to Y&R to rescue: Lord, that’s a whole nother can of worms…

    she would fascinate with Jack… and bring back intrigue with Victor…

    dye her hair…

    the one transformation that boggles the mind… and I uproariously soapbox… and cheer to the gills.

    is Jenn Lilly as Jeanne Theresa Donovan’… man! it’s stellar right now in Salem.. with her parents: Shane and Kimberly home… Oye! the rapport with this new family… is through the roof!

    anyway.. she was mousy blond with too bright red lipstick… and still firing her guns ablaze.. otherwise … why all the hoopla and fireworks… she stoked

    watching her now… as the stunning luminous vixen… is laugh out loud… triggers – I love her new LOOK. and she’s on FIYAH

    Hope Sabrina gets her man, Patrick. Good to see the Quartermaines back on GH (hopefully, Mother Monica, too). I hope Lulu loses her baby and also goes to prison (my dream storyline, anyway). I also want Sonny, Carly, Franco, and Kiki to go on a three-hour tour and be lost at sea forever! :-)

    There are too many characters on the canvas and Ron drops the ball because he can’t juggle. He goes off on tangents with cutesy stuff that goes nowhere. He simply doesn’t know how to write for women and when he does it comes off forced and contrived.

    I Think Connie killed kate. Kate Killed herself… Kate hadn’t fully integrated and might have had a final altercation with Connie in the Office.. the gun shot did occur where Kate was shot during her wedding to Sonny. I the D.I.D storyline is just to exotic to not somehow fold into that Characters demise. She was broken over the idea of losing Trey… Connie was upset that kate went back to Sonny…what if Connie accidentally shot Kate in a demonstration to recall to Kate the hurt Sonny put her through. Not a solid theory but i personally bet that the twist will involve that… or be somewhere in that vicinity.

    I agree with some of the comments…………… really who cares now who killed Connie. As for Robyn ….. yes I agree she has pit on some weight and a size 4 highly doubt it. I don’t like Robyn wish she never came back! But I am looking forward to the wedding and Robyn showing up….. which will suck. I really like Patrick and Sabrina together! Also does Sabrina and Carlos really have to throw the accent in when they are calling eachothers names? That’s soooo gay. Cheers!

    that’s so gay? wow, you managed to offend hispanics and homosexuals in a short sentence. kudos! it takes someone special to manage that.

    Reply

    Judy replied

    number 1 “manage to offend Hispanics”. If they were using there accents through out the show that’s a different story throwing in the heritage on just the name doesn’t make sense!
    Number 2 “managed to offend homosexuals” didn’t do that…. when I said “that’s gay” meaning that’s not right, not necessary. Here in Canada we use that word once in a while. For you INFORMATION, I don not have a problem with homosexuals and have many friends that are. So before you criticize maybe ask what I mean before attacking someone when I didn’t mean what you thought I meant. Cheers hey! Something else we say in CANADA!

    su0000 replied

    lol not liking an accent is not offending..
    I have an accent, some like it some don’t, but they all love me!! lol..

    the use of “gay” to mean “sillly” or “stupid” or “lame” is first of all not just Canadian, and, secondly, nowhere near as innocent as you make it out. Would it be the same if I said that’s so “Jewish” or that’s so “black”? (fyi, “some of my best friends are Jewish” – that doesn’t give me a pass) – thought so. What if I said “that’s so straight” – wait, no, that doesn’t work because “straight” means “honest”, “correct” etc. and gay means “lame” and “stupid” – you think that’s just a coincidence or just Canadian?

    But seeing as I’m only an individual and obviously as a gay person I have no say in what is offensive and what isn’t, whereas you do because you have gay friends.

    And if you won’t believe me, ask Michael Fairman directly. See how he feels about this use of the word “gay”.

    And as to the accent, I’m Italian and I can assure you that when I speak to fellow Italians, even when we talk in English, if we use Italian words or say Italian names, we say them with an Italian accent. It’s normal, it’s what you would do. It’s a way of asserting your common identity and background. Also, it would feel silly (or should i say it would feel so “g…” to anglicise the pronunciation of an Italian (Spanish/what have you…) name with someone who was raised speaking that language. You’d feel fake.

    SUSAN M. replied

    I am not sure if I like Carlos or not . Time will tell…He might get Sabrina after all.I think they will not be husband and wife(Patrick & Sabrina)..Robin will come just about when is there anyone here know why these two shouldn’t be married and Robin will say: “I Do!”

    Mary SF replied

    I honestly don’t think you meant to offend but often we grow up in a culture where certain phrases are used in a context that the origins of such phrases are forgotten. Trust me, I am from Canada too, and that phrase, sooo gay offensive. Why? You stated you meant it as way of saying that is so not right— but where do you think that phrase and that meaning came together– because it implies that being gay is associated with not being right, meaning it is wrong to be gay. You may think it is harmless slang but I am sure for a young gay person coming to terms with their sexuality, messages like that one, even done without intention to be harmful could still cause harm, if a person is struggling to accept their sexuality.
    As for the accent thing– often went those whose first language is not English are with those whose first language is, their English is very good and they have little of no accent because they are trying get their English sound like those who first language is English. However when speaking English within their own ethnic group I have seen them developed some really thick accents especially if they are going between their first language and English.
    So, I think it is realistic that when alone Sabrina and Carlos English would have more of an accent to it, better yet they should speak Spanish and use sub titles– because that might make more sense to viewers.
    Anyway I don’t know if adding my thoughts helped, but I hope it did.

    All I know is when the actress who played Tea on OLTL would speak Spanish it was music to my ears because she speaks it so beautiful. If RC needed to bring an actress over from OLTL why could it have not been her? And the gay subject I will lay low on that one leave that conversation for a lot more savy people then I. Try my best to stay away from politics, religion and sexual orientation a good way to stir the old pot.

    It just seems utterly ridiculous that two people who are otherwise fluent in English suddenly turn on the foreign tongue when they address each other by name….it comes off as completely phony and put on, not to mention melodramatic. To me, this would be the same issue if for some reason Dr. O. and Faison spoke completely accent free then turned on a dime by reverting to their European voices when they referred to each other. At least they are consistent….they speak a very erudite version of English, yet it is in their “native” inflections. Much more realistic and sophisticated! That is something I so love about GH…its international cast: Brits, Scots, Danes, Aussies and Swiss-Germans!

    Shay replied

    Don’t really get the “gay” reference….it’s not as if Brad and Felix are the ones rolling the rrrrr’s in such an over-the-top fashion! But this is a very annoying affectation in dialogue between Sappy and the greasy gansta that you write of, and I found it to be most off-putting from the first! I made mention of it before in that I thought it turned the show into a parody of a trashy, over-dramatic telenovela. It really seemed unnecessary, and now it’s almost like one big joke….as soon as those two characters show up, you just know what’s coming! Certainly feeds into the whole stereotypical thing….and it probably is even more ridiculous given that both roles seemed so extremely useless anyway, although Car-LOS! may actually prove to be of some worth if he can throw a monkey-wrench into that complete farce of a wedding. Hoping that the misery of Putrina is soon put to an abrupt end….cannot wait. Been far tooooo long in coming!!!!

    The killer put the letters in blood AJ.. So the real killer can get away with it. Is it Ava Jerome or who else could it be? Who else would want to kill and get Connie out of the way? I can’t seem to come up with anyone yet.. Could it be Ava’s brother Julian?

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    Sorry– I just check the clip on YouTube and when Sonny came in the paper was blank. And when Sonny went to the phone to call 911 he clearly asks Connie who did that to her and we see her on camera starting to write out the A. So unless the killer was Connie your theory doesn’t work.
    I thought Ava was too obvious, but based on what we saw on the show today, the Jerome’s are definitely mixed up in the murder. They are at least covering up something by stealing the tapes of who was there that night. Whether she is the real killer and Connie was trying to Ava Jerome is yet to be seen.
    It is obvious RC does want us to believe Ava did it but when he wants to believe one thing he usually has something else plan and wants us to sidetrack so we don’t guess the real killer

    Glad they are finally getting back to this storyline. I hope this trial brings AJ and Elizabeth closer once AJ goes free. AJ the perpetual screwup has dramatic storyline potential for many years to come. I would like to see him receive some level redemption and happiness. I really like Sean Kanan too.
