Thursday's 'General Hospital' Spoilers: Franco's Transformation With Drew's Memories Rattles Elizabeth And Kim

Stacy Carey

Viewers got their first taste of Franco trying to live with Drew's memories on Wednesday's General Hospital and spoilers suggest that this will get even more intense during Thursday's episode. "Drew" wasted no time in making a romantic move on a very confused Kim and Elizabeth was left stunned as she saw it happen. Where does this all head next?

From the sounds of things, this may take a while to play out. Co-head writer Shelly Altman teased a few General Hospital spoilers about this twist via Soap Opera Digest. Even though the fans are skeptical, those with the show seem to see this as an intriguing challenge.

Altman teased that they decided that Franco was the perfect person to transfer Drew's memories to, as it gave them a lot of story going forward that impacted many different Port Charles residents. From the sounds of things, Roger Howarth, who plays Franco, was up for this, as was Rebecca Herbst, who plays Elizabeth.

Howarth teased that he thought this offered up a valuable challenge for newlyweds Franco and Elizabeth.

"It presents a really good obstacle for the Franco/Elizabeth relationship and I think obstacles are really important and in the end, really rewarding."

"I'm excited! I think it's really great [story] for Elizabeth to have this man she loves not be there and just be a shell."

Not much is known yet about how long this will take to play out or how it will be resolved. As The Inquisitr recently noted, Billy Miller is leaving his role as Drew later this month and it seems likely his departure will tie into this latest twist somehow.

At this point, it doesn't look as if fans are terribly excited about seeing another angle of this memory swatch story dominate the upcoming episodes. Will the writers and actors involved be able to draw viewers in and will there be a worthwhile payoff ahead?

Additional General Hospital spoilers about what comes next should emerge soon and everybody will be anxious to get a sense of where this is headed.
