Will Jonathan Jackson, Nathan Parsons & Other Notables Return To GH For Tony Geary's Final Farewell As Luke Spencer?



It would seem that General Hospital has been crafting and taping the final ten weeks of story that viewers will see on upcoming episodes of the long running ABC soap opera to usher out the one and only soap opera icon, Anthony Geary.  The legend is now set to finish up his fantastic 37-year-run playing Lucas Lorenzo Spencer.

With Geary recently revealing his imminent departure, and Genie Francis already back on board as Laura Spencer, it would seem natural for Luke’s son, the beloved Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) and the wayward Ethan (Nathan Parsons) to come back  and have some final scenes with their on-screen dad.

While Luke’s final storyline has been under wraps,  GH head writer  Ron Carlivati recently alluded to Soap Opera Digest that he was looking for a way to incorporate adventure into Geary’s final GH story.

Since action-adventure has been a staple of Luke’s storylines of the past that would make sense. In addition, Daytime Confidential is reporting today that they are hearing rumblings about Jackson and Parson’s return, plus an additional former leading lady other than Francis and Jane Elliot (Tracy).

So this begs the question: Who do you want to see be part of Luke Spencer’s and Tony Geary’s final storyline this summer? Share your thoughts below!

      I find your dip wits comment uncalled for. These comments were posted before the news was released on June 1st that she was returning.

    I first watched GH when Luke met Holly on top of the mountain. I would love to see Holly again for a few episodes. Will really miss Anthony Geary.

    Robert, Holly, and Helena with that DNA test proving that Ethan is Robert’s and NOT Luke’s.

    Also, Connie Townley, Luke’s 1983 WSB-agent-lover.

    I hope its Lucky, Robert, Holly, Sean and Tiffany.

    I dont want to see Ethan. I didnt like the character, the actor or the story in which he was eventually connected to Luke.

      I loved Ethsn…exuded the cool/edgy vibe…not to mention he’s gorgeous, his accent and charm. Would love to see robert…just want him back full time!…Sean and Tiffany. But as you probably know she was very ill…not quite sure what her status is now.

      Tristen is under contract to Y and R as Colin. Dont see how he could appear as Robert.

      • Harry

        May 29, 2015 at 10:05 am

        Rebecca, I love Ethan too. Eileen, Tristan is nowhere to be seen on Y&R and if Eileen Davidson can jump from Days to Y&R in front burner stories, why can’t Tristan make a couple of cameos?
        That’s not a rhetorical question, I earnestly want an answer.

      • davidevansmith

        May 29, 2015 at 11:40 pm

        The difference is that Y&R and DAYS both are owned (? or produced, or invested in) by SONY, so they can have a say in creative decisions that would be profitable to both soaps. Y&R and GH have no such ties, and are more clear-cut competitors, where there is no legitimate reason for either soap to concede favors to the other for the sake of the story or the fans. In fact those two soaps have been stealing actors from each other for years.

        However, I don’t see Y&R investing in Tristan Rogers anymore, he hasn’t really been seen since Pratt’s plane crash debut storyline, so I can’t imagine there are big plans for Colin. I personally don’t think they’ll keep him on contract for too many more cycles, so maybe he could return to GH more permanently for Anna once Finola returns from her hiatus.

      Tiffany has an illness and said she can never go back to GH because she is not well

  5. Helen

    May 28, 2015 at 12:03 pm

    Please bring back Jonathan Jackson and Emma Samms, that would be terrific.

    • Bridgette

      June 4, 2015 at 3:58 pm

      Jonathan Jackson is coming back so is Ethan – Emma was announced last week as a yes. I want Robert Scorpio back that would be an ideal thing to do

  6. horselover

    May 28, 2015 at 12:04 pm

    Can Ethan please be revealed as Robert Scorpio’s son instead of Luke’s? Please?

  7. Jeremy

    May 28, 2015 at 12:41 pm

    Very cool, if it can happen, especially for it be worked out with Jonathan Jackson, and his Nashville schedule, etc. I love Nathan Parsons, too. Other leading lady? Emma Samms? and, could they briefly pop Julie Marie Berman into the mix, somehow, a flashback scene or something with Genie, Anthony, Jonathan, and Julie?

  8. Laura G

    May 28, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    Holly and Scorpio!

    I would love to see the return of Lucky and Ethan (as brilliantly played by Jonathan Jackson and Nathan Parsons) to help wrap up Luke’s (Tony Geary’s) storyline. That would be a wonderful personal touch. JJ spent many years with Tony Geary and Genie Francis, so that would be fitting, and I so enjoyed the relationship between Luke and Ethan. As for the other leading lady that could be brought back, I am so hoping that it is “NOT” Helena Cassadine, as I am so over her. I think his romantic relationships with Laura and Tracy are the most heartfelt and genuine, and are the ones that deserve the fanfare at the end of this long, wonderful ride we were fortunate enough to share with Luke/Tony Geary!

    • Mrs B

      Just PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT kill Luke off. We have to see him again.

    Emma Sams!! It will be Luke and Holly at the end

    May 28, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    I don’t want Tony to leave!
    However, the final scenes will be the best they can be..
    I have no doubt that RC and all the staff of GH are doing their very best to give Tony/Luke his due with a great exit..
    (All are working hard on the farewell..

    (I’m sure Tony will some input also…

  12. Jake from NJ

    Maybe Skye….Holly?

  13. Jimh(leave it to beaver)

    May 28, 2015 at 1:42 pm

    Holly is the other woman……so who does Helene get to terrorize once Luke isgone……also, there is rumor Liz leaves with Lucky because RHdoesnt lik workin with Billy Miller—is this true?

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

        May 28, 2015 at 7:14 pm

        Don’t be sorry! Hope you feel better soon! I would hope that if Helena is involved at all, that they use it as a chance to end the ridiculous Lulu/Stavros embryo in a thermos story!
        As to Liz, would someone actually quit their job just because they don’t like a co-worker? Not many of us have that option, so I would doubt it.

        Wonder if it’s true???

    • David

      May 28, 2015 at 7:29 pm

      Not true at all apparently there were Some nasty rumors, that not only involved the characters of General Hospital, but the actors who play those parts hit social media after a certain gossip website posted that Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) and Billy Miller (Jake Doe/Jason Morgan) strongly disliked one another on the set of GH, and that Herbst was on her way out because of Billy Miller. These rumors are completely UNTRUE. There is absolutely no animosity between Becky and Bill, and Becky herself said she is staying with GH. So hopefully we can put crap like this aside this why i hate the internet rumors start taking on a life of their own

      • Fanny

        May 29, 2015 at 4:38 am

        Thanks for the update.

        I kind of thought it was stupid gossip….i knd of stumbled upon it on the internet……i believe if it were true ew here it here!

      • Harry

        May 29, 2015 at 10:08 am

        David, where do this insane rumors come from?
        In interviews Billy Miller has positively waxed poetic about Rebecca’s beauty and talent.
        I think these mean spirited rumors came from a rabid pack of JaSam fans who harbor a puzzling hatred toward Lizzy, a fictional character.
        That is my theory anyway.

  14. KansasGuest

    If Ethan returns, I wouldn’t be surprised if his mum, Holly Sutton Scorpio, also makes an appearance. It would also be nice for her ex & Luke’s BFF, Robert, to make an appearance. But, I don’t know what Tristan Rogers’ status is over at CBS.

  15. David

    May 28, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    I am guessing the other leading lady would be Emma Samms. I wish Tristain Rogers was available as he should really be a part of Luke’s departure but alas not meant to be. Really looking forward to seeing how they send him off.

  16. Jimmy

    May 28, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    I hope they can both return, especially Lucky. I’ve wanted JJ to come back to GH for so long now, and with Laura coming back, it makes sense that Lucky comes back too.

    As for the other former leading lady, I think this one is obvious: Emma Samms. She’s been back to GH a few times in the last few years, so it would make sense.

  17. Taylor

    May 28, 2015 at 3:17 pm

    Will we see Emma Samms’ Holly Sutton return to Port Charles? Please let that be the case.

  18. Allen saint james

    May 28, 2015 at 3:17 pm

    Action adventure is the only way to end Luke’s story on gh! Luke Laura Lucky Ethan and Holly and wish fully Robert Scorpio should be a big part of his exit. Perhaps Luke will be presumed Dead. LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN. YAY!

  19. Joanne

    May 28, 2015 at 3:56 pm

    All I can say is yes,yes, yes to Jonathan and Nathan returning for a few episodes to help usher Luke out.

  20. Dan

    May 28, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    Would love to see Jonathan Jackson back as Lucky, so he, Tony and Genie can share the screen together one last time. Hopefully they’re able to make that happen. The adventures of Luke and Laura and Lucky were such a big part of what drew me to GH when I first started watching the show in 1993, so I would really enjoy that. Jonathan literally grew up on the show, and in interviews even today always gives Tony Geary a lot of credit for him becoming the accomplished actor he became. I’m sure he’ll want to come back and say goodbye.

    I personally never cared for the character of Ethan, rewriting history and making him Luke and Holly’s son was one of the many stupid Guza storyline mis-steps. But it would be cool to see Emma Samms again, who is I assume the other leading lady from Luke’s past referred to here.

    It’s a shame Tristan Rogers won’t be able to be there, to give Luke and Scorpio a proper conclusion, especially since he’s not really doing much of anything at all on Y&R these days, from what I understand from my friends that watch the show. If they’re not gonna use him, they should cut him free, so he can return home to Port Charles where he belongs.

    • Kelly

      May 28, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      I agree, They should let Tristan come back! It would be one heck of a send off if Tristan, Sean Donley, Sharon Wyatt, and even Jack Wagner come back to the show. That would be so awesome!

  21. Aria

    May 28, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    I hope he gets to say goodbye to finola hughes, I’m sure the other leading lady is Emma samms, Tito bad he won’t get to share the screen one last time with Tristan Rogers Scorpio. I can’t wait to see how they do it, I hope they give us a happy ending and no cliffhanger, because once Geary is out the door who knows if he’ll ever make an appearance on GH agian.

  22. Kelly

    May 28, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    I would have to say Emma Samms that played Holly. And please bring back Tristan Rogers, John Reilly(who played Sean)and Sharon Wyatt. I know Tristan is on Y&R, but they should allow him to come back for that farewell.

  27. Karin

    May 28, 2015 at 8:23 pm

      • shauna

        May 29, 2015 at 2:06 pm

        Would love to see all of them as well! I mean, Robert and Luke were BFFs in the 80’s. Sonny and Luke were the BFFs of the 90’s. I would love to see the incorporate all of his children, his sister, and his women(Laura, Tracy and Holly) and his 2 BFFs! Plus, if possible, Sean and Tiffany! But that’s a stretch to get all of them! Luke Spencer deserves to out with a bang!

      • Mrs B

        May 31, 2015 at 1:49 pm

        Yes to all the above.

  28. Vicki

    May 29, 2015 at 4:37 am

    I have also heard ABC will have JJ return to help usher AG out. It will be nice to see The Spencer’s reunite. As far as Ethan goes, hope Luke doesn’t turn out to be his daddy. Emma coming back would answer those questions possibly. I hope they allow The Spencer’s to leave town like they came back in 1993-With a mystery but with some Spencer type style.

  29. Timmm

    May 29, 2015 at 4:38 am

    This is why its so great to be a fan of GH. This summer is going to be awesome. We have no idea how Luke will leave and thats exciting in this day and age of spoilers through social media. He is at peace with leaving and has a great deal of respect for his chacter and his first love. Whatever he chooses to do will be okay by me. Love you Tony!

    • Desiree Aiello

    It would be nice to see Tiffany, Sean, Robert, Holly, and Ethan but mostly I would like to see Lucky come back and entice Elizabeth to ride off into the sunset with him.

  32. Eileen Hargis

    May 29, 2015 at 10:42 am

    Harry, Tristan might not be seen but he is under contract. When Eileen and Wally Kurth both bounced between Days and GH, they werent under contract and could do both shows. Wally signed a contract for Days and had to exit GH.

    Love to see The one and only Lucky, JJ return. Ethan I liked ,the actor can act. Emma Sands and Sean . Tiff had a lot of medical problems so maybe not. The best thing is, whomever returns to escort Luke off won’t be staying long so TIIC won’t be able to destroy the characters. I just hope they don’t ruin the Laura return.

    I loved the friendship between Luke & Robert from the beginning. I want Robert to be a part of Luke’s storyline–one that doesn’t end and allows for Anthony Geary to return as Luke from time to time! I would also like to see Luke’s other best friend, Roy DiLucca return if A Martinez is available. They also have great chemistry as friends and we’ve never had a Luke, Robert and Roy scene together. That would be awesome! Perhaps best friends Robert & Roy could help send Luke off somewhere and then share some scenes of their own together!

  45. Christi

    June 4, 2015 at 5:14 am

    Would love for JJ to return with Laura! Emma too! Just don’t know how they’d have Lucky return after he abandoned his sons. I hated that story and what Elizabeth and Nikolas did but NEVER saw Lucky as repeating his fathers mistakes. Was such a huge fan of GH in the 90’s and Luke & Laura as well as the Four Muskeeters ( Nik, Lucky, Elizabeth, Emily) were a big part of that. Would be grateful to RC if he fixed what Guza broke.

    With that said I will miss Anthony Geary as Luke Spencer. I hope he makes guest returns!

  46. Skahn

    June 10, 2015 at 8:03 am

    So awesome to see Genie and Tony back on screen again…but sad that Tony is leaving…Although I’m glad they will not kill of his character & to leave an open door for him to return later on…I wish Tony the best of health and glad he’s putting that first…Very excited to see Jackson and Parson returning as well…I hope some more veterans return this summer for Tony’s farewell…

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Part Three: Heartbreak, Revelations, A Surprise Guest!

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, it was the third installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018, which featured: three musical performances, a reveal to Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) that Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is Henrik Faison, Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) water breaking as she is in a car with Peter, and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) trying to cope with overhearing that Finn (Michael Easton) has deep feelings for Anna (Finola Hughes).

During the festivities, Ned (Wally Kurth) and his wife, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), take the stage and perform (What’s So Funny) Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, originally made famous by Elvis Costello. Later, in a tender performance Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Oscar (Garren Stitt) bring down the house performing, “I Never Knew” the most moving moment thus far at this year’s ball as Oscar’s parents, Kim (Tamara Braun) and Drew (Billy Miller) look on with pride.

While the performances are happening onstage, backstage the drama heats up after Finn admits to Anna that he has feelings for her and how he has never stopped thinking about her. Alexis overhears this whole confession to Anna.

Upset, Alexis heads out of the ball and past the stage, even though she was supposed to receive the Pioneer Award. She heads to the bar. Finn finds her, but Alexis would prefer to be alone. He leaves. Enter Julian (William deVry)! Will Julexis finally get back together, or will Alexis push Julian away? Elsewhere, Sam tells Jason about the lighter of Cesar Faison’s she found in Peter’s office and the P.K. Sinclair book. Jason realizes that Peter is Henrik. Meanwhile, Anna has texted Peter again to meet her. But Maxie. who is with Peter, tells him she wants him to take her home, because she isn’t feeling well. Later, her water breaks while driving in the car with Peter, and she urges him to pull over.
