Doped martini has Edward Quartermaine shaken on GENERAL HOSPITAL
Andrea's attempts to silence Edward Quartermaine have deadly consequences next week on GENERAL HOSPITAL.

"Andrea tries to get him to drink a martini laced with digitalis to make him have a heart attack," says Edward's longtime portrayer, John Ingle.

Andrea, who is married to the mayor, is trying to kill Edward because he saw her leaving the Metro Court the day her husband's mistress was murdered.

"Edward has had a relationship with a very attractive blond and has a suite reserved on the same floor as the mayor's suite. He saw the mayor's wife leaving the hotel room carrying a rather large, unattractive handbag."

With the murder weapon in it.

Daytime Emmys 2009: The Beginning of the End?
Ed Martin writes: "What a depressing experience overall for fans of daytime drama, those devout enthusiasts at whom the Daytime Emmy telecast is supposedly targeted. (Let's face it: Talk shows, news shows and children's programming basically come along for the ride. Viewers tune in to see soap stars.) The soaps are already contending with questionable audience measurement, ever-increasing media competition, industry executives who seem to be not particularly invested in ensuring their survival, threats of impending cancellation and, most egregiously, a pool of writing talent that can best be described as stagnant."
