One of the reasons we heart "General Hospital" is because they LOVE to do big stories that use everyone on the canvas and tie them all together with some big disaster -- be it physical, emotional, or both. It's like an Irwin Allen movie. But better. And without Shelley Winters.
Anyway, previous events have centered on the Port Charles Hotel (remember the fire?), the Metro Court (a hostage crisis), and even a locomotive (the big train wreck). Now, the setting is going to be General Hospital itself!
And inside the hospital, during all the ensuing insanity (because things get totally nuts; we mean this in the best way possible), you can expect:
* The entire cast to be present and accounted for, thanks to a big fundraiser that Carly is throwing at GH.
* The doctors and nurses of GH taking center stage, most especially Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson).
* A big return in the form of Natalia Livingston, who played Emily Quartermaine from 2003 'til 2008. Natalia's playing a character named Rebecca. Is she Emily in disguise? Connected to the late Ms. Q? Find out. Oh yeah, and wait until Nikolas sees her for the first time ...
* Death. Yep, the population of Port Charles will be less when this thing is over. You've seen the commercials saying the characters have got to live every moment as if it were their last. Well, it's true!
Mark your calendars: January 15, it begins!
