finn’s ready to build a life with anna!

The In Depth Story: There was a time when Hamilton Finn wanted nothing more than to wall himself off emotionally. He didn’t need anyone or anything, with the possible exception of Roxy, his emotional-support bearded dragon. Sure, the quirky doc allowed himself to fall — hard — for Hayden, but he went right back into his shell when she left him broken-hearted. And then, he crossed paths — and began having adventures — with Anna. Although Finn tried to resist the Brit’s charms, it was clear pretty early on that she had managed to get under his skin. So much so that this week, he’s ready to take their relationship to the next level! “Anna doesn’t like being at the center of a mystery!” According to co-headwriter Shelly Altman, this development doesn’t catch…

emmy details!

Playing it Cool Maurice Benard (Sonny), who submitted emotional scenes tied to Mike’s Alzheimer’s, had a different outlook on the game this year. “I used to get real crazy. If I didn’t get nominated, it hurt a lot. And if I did get nominated, maybe I was just too high about it. This year, I’m just appreciative. The bottom line is, it’s always nice to be invited to the party.” Gone But Not Forgotten Last year’s Outstanding Younger Actress, Chloe Lanier (ex-Nelle), confesses that she wasn’t expecting a nomination again “because I’m not on the show anymore. I would be more than delighted to win again, but if things don’t go my way, I’ll just be happy to see everybody.” Tough Competition With more than one GH player in many of the performer categories, some…

soap’s farewell to co-star

The In Depth Story: As first reported by EW.com, Genoa City will learn of Neil’s unexpected passing on Tuesday, April 23. As the story continues throughout the week, Moore will bring the character’s brother home for two episodes (Thursday, April 25, and Friday, April 26).

shotgun wedding!

The In Depth Story: Eve’s announcement of her intention to remarry Jack took some by surprise, but no one more than his other, ex, Jennifer. She thought that she’d have more time for their own lost love to reignite. How far will Jennifer go to put a stop to the couple’s plans? As it turns out, Jen will go pretty far when it comes to protecting the father of her children (whom she’d already lost years with while believing him dead). However in situations like these, two heads are better than one, and the person who offers to assist her in putting a stop to the wedding is the last person Jennifer would ever expect: her last love, Eric! So while Eve’s distracted trying to help Claire prevent Tripp from marrying undocumented…

IN An “All-New” Jax! At long last, Ingo Rademacher is back at the GENERAL HOSPITAL studio, taping scenes as Jax! So when will we see him on screen? The In Depth Story: Rademacher reported to work the last week of March. “Won’t be long now,” the ac-tor teased on March 20 via Instagram, posting a photo of himself standing in front of the famed GH entry. “Just had my fitting. All-new look for Jax. Start shooting next week.” While the actor didn’t have an air date to share, he did note that he “can’t wait” to be back in the mix. Rademacher’s return was announced back in February, shortly after he’d finished his run as THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Thorne. While it’s not clear what brings Jax back to town or how long he’ll…
