April and General Hospital's 50th Anniversary begins.
I'm looking forward to the Nurses Ball. I think it will be enjoyable and I am expecting it to have the complex storylines associated with most GH events. The ball will no doubt be a 2 week event by the time it unfolds.
I'm also looking forward to the end of the Nurses's Ball and the Anniversary as a time to get rid of some characters and silliness that has endured in the spirit of honoring history. Characters I'm hoping will go away asap are Scotty, Lucy, Frisco, Felicia and Duke. I hope to never hear the word 'vampire' again.
Scotty and Lucy are virtually the same characters the same actors played on ATWT years ago. They were beyond annoying then and have not improved. Frisco and Felicia might have been must see in their day but they are beyond boring now. Same with Duke. Actually it is hard to believe this character was ever interesting. Anna definitely deserves better. Laura could stay around and she is one of the most appealing female characters I've seen on GH.
Sabrina has surprised me. There is a lot more to her than first met the eye. It's still a Cinderella story yet Patrick has already fallen for her even without a pending makeover.
I've most loved the conversations between characters you wouldn't expect to advise one another: Carly and Sam; AJ and Spinelli; Tracy and Ellie; Shawn and Rafe. I'm also delighted that Milo finally has a storyline though the idea that he has so much trouble finding a woman is surprising.
Sabrina was wrong to go out with him without at least talking to Felix about it. While Felix is dreaming, Milo is not gay. Felix and Sabrina are friends, good friends and she just brushed aside Felix's feelings and went on.
Of course, everyone wonders if Robin will come back for the ball. The biggest surprise of the year was the reveal that Britt is the Swiss doctor's daughter. What does Britt know about Robin's situation? Does she know Dr. Scorpio-Drake is still alive?
The biggest question is what the writers are going to do with the actors formally playing John McBain, Todd Manning and Starr Manning.
