Clues about the GH Biotoxin Crisis:

Soapdish/BuB's speculated timeline using SB spoilers, CGS, SOW, SOD spoilers of the "flashback" episodes
Accumulation of facts surrounding the hospital crisis (Scrubs board)

:: Pretty Reliable::
AIG none at the time of this post
TMI none at the time of this post

:: Could be Complete Fiction::
Daytime Dish/Backup Board (source and source):
Be grateful if your favorites are not sick from the toxins because that means you will be seeing a lot of them. The sick ones are a way for RG, to not do much with those characters. Monica, Liz, Leyla, Trevor and Kate.

People just haven't been paying attention, instead think these are testings between new couples, etc. Everyone Patrick is having "poignant" scenes may be WTF, but these are all the characters who will most be affected during the toxin arc.

Next on General Hospital:
Patrick tries to stop a catastrophe at the hospital.

Ohhh do scrubs, please !!
" I need to know if Robin and Emma are ok"

This is all I know. I won't answer any follow ups. I'm posting against my better judgement.
1. Guza was in the office today.
2. CC's downgrade came from NL's the contract was up Feb. 8.
3. Olivia will be a contract role soon.
4. Sonya Eddy will likely be back on recurring within 6 months.
5. Those about to enter contract negotiations are going to have a much more difficult go of it than those that just re-signed.
6. Monthly minimums are going over better than initially believed.
7. My supervisor was on the phone with Sweeney today for about half an hour. May have been about the restructure that was announced a few hours later.
8. Frons is very pleased with this crisis storyline.
9. Talks with Rao are at a stalemate.
10. I am the best insider you have.
[the media release about the merging of ABC's division/units] It means Sweeney is much more involved in the television unit of Disney and they will do anything to save money. Control of ABCD could easily be taken.
Guza will get a CO-HW before he his let go.
High ups are waiting to see how the ratings for phase II of the crisis goes before acting.
Will there be any other actors let go?
I don't know of any confirmations, but payroll for Feb is smaller, than Jan, and Mar. is forecasted to be smaller than Feb. April forecasts aren't due until Jan 30.
Thanks. And would you attribute this to not working the performers so far beyond their minimums or contract roles being released?
All of the above, plus they are using less and less of their recurring characters.
I don't have storyline info, but everyone is talking about how great the performances are during Phase II. Frons is very happy with those episodes and sees this week as a solid build up.
