  • Yes! Hopefully the new season will introduce some interesting plotlines. Last year was incredibly awful and ridiculous.

  • Wow that photo makes him look insufferably conceited.

    • He’s in character. It’s a GH promo shot and his character is insufferably arrogant.

    • Totally disagree. Hotness personified!
      Though, “Eugene Thompsen”? What an un-hot name to associate with such a hot man!

  • Jesus, you’re an idiot. It’s a headshot. He looks like a hot guy in a headshot. Not insufferably anything, and his character is hardly insufferably anything. Watch the show or stfu.

    • Well, that was a mature response. What are you, 15 years old?

  • If Jason Thompson is only appearing in one episode as a detective..then the top secret mystery must not be that big of a storyline.

  • I only watch for Teddy. He better be back with a worthy storyline and sexy hotness

  • I guess he must have something to do with this:

    “90210 spoilers: ….two of our favorites find themselves hitchhiking through the desert. Luckily, someone picks them up and gives them a ride. Not-so-luckily … he stops to rob a few gas stations on the way.”

    Who are those two? Max-Naomi?
