A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

Courtesy/ABC

ABC and General Hospital released a promo for the week of December 9th which features Franco (Roger Howarth) undergoing the mind-mapping reversal procedure that would restore his memory from that of Drew Cain’s back to Franco Baldwin.

But, as viewers saw on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Peter (Wes Ramsey) is trying to stop Dr. Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) from performing the procedure on Franco by ordering a hit on him.

In the promo, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hersbt) waits by her husband’s side hoping he will return to her and remember the love they share.  As well,  Cameron (William Lipton) prays with her that Franco will come back to them so they can be a family again in time for the holiday season.

Watch the teaser below.

Then, let us know if you are hoping Franco returns and that he is no longer Drew Cain in the comment section, or are you hoping for a different procedural outcome when he wakes up?

I am SO ready for Franco to be back. Franco is a unique character on GH and the show is missing his humour and emotionality in a land of macho, subdued men.

Beyond that, the Franco/Elizabeth relationship and their dysfunctional but loving little family has been painstakingly built over the years. I can’t wait for the romantic pay off to Franco’s sacrifice and Elizabeth’s unshakeable faith. I also hope that Franco and Cam can become true family now that Franco has proven himself to Cam through a father’s love & sacrifice. Finally, Scotty has emerged as the curmudgeonly patriarch of the legacy Webber-Baldwin clan. I hope to see this family unit root the stories on GH for years to come!

I agree with everything Shan B. said. Franco is a very unique character who has been completely transformed with credit to the writers, Roger Howarth, and his costars. Franco has become a wonderful man and amazing stepfather. He was protective of his loved ones when he was young and he still is. His true character has been shown to be self-sacrificial. I would love for Cameron to ask Franco to adopt him.

I also hope that Franco has no memories of his time as Drew. We need to see HIS reaction to the apparent loss of Drew. They chose to be brothers and it was a beautiful story. We need to see Franco’s reaction to the sexual encounter with Kim where he had no autonomy over his body or what was done. Not one character got to call Kim out as the sexual predator she was. It was vastly disturbing to see her behavior consistently excused as grieving. It has been very underwhelming that what should have been a Franco/Elizabeth story was primarily a Kim story—and a repulsive one at that.

No, it was no ‘miracle’..
99% of fans knew Franco would revert to Franco from day one of the lacklustre story..
‘good’ writers would have written this story very intriguing and suspenseful, but it wasn’t written by good writers so be got a lot of Blah..

GH needs to clean house and bring in talented writers.
It’s sad to see GH fall from it’s once glory..
The writers of long past were great soap writers, an abundance of talent.
These writers should be writing for Hallmark Cards..

An interesting twist would be for Franco to come back as the old evil Franco and have Elizabeth wishing she had left well enough alone.

That would be the best thing that could happen to GH.
give us suspense and chills and thrills !!
At the least for a couple of months
(wouldn’t expect any more from the writers than 3 months of an exciting story)

So happy Franco is coming back!

I suppose it will be a slight improvement to be done with the stupid Drodd brain mapped dragonshit, but unfortunately he’ll still be Frodd again.

Can we hope for “Option 4” where he becomes a complete vegetable? Which also means his soul will be trapped in his body and NOT here in Hell!

WHY, is Peter involved in nearly EVERY storyline? The propping of this flop is NOT working.

Yes, please return Franco and end this super bad storyline already.

I am hoping that Franco comes back. I want to see Franco deal with Drew’s death. I love Franco and Elizabeth’s relationship and the whole Baldwin-Webber family. I am looking forward to Cam and Franco’s first conversation after he wakes up and want an adoption of Cam for the holidays

I love Franco, I’m so ready for him to be back to Elizabeth and their boys. They are just the best couple in daytime. Franco has turned into such a humorous and loveable character. I have missed him on my screen for the last four months.

Franco needs to return to his family and to us viewers. I miss his humor and the sweet family him and Elizabeth have made. One brain damaged emotionless male lead is enough for one show, I can’t wait for Franco to come back.

Love Franco and Elizabeth. Can’t wait for Franco to finally be back with his family.

GH ha finally hit gold with the Franco & Elizabeth pairing. It comes around rarely that you connect a couple with longevity. This couple with it’s diverse histories and the opportunity for quirky and wonderful stories connected to so many other characters on the canvas makes them a joy to watch. It’s been a long time since I’ve rushed home to see a show or stayed up late to watch online because I missed it. This is the pair that’s making me do those things and I don’t want it to end and am looking forward to them for a long time to come.

I love Franco and I love Franco & Elizabeth. Can’t to have Franco back.

The only reason I cared at all about this story was the 2 characters that it SHOULD’VE been about..Fans have invested nearly 4 years into seeing Franco and Elizabeth establish a family and bond worthy of their legacy status..To make this storyline nearly completely about a character that a lot of fans felt no connection to or was largely unliked to begin with, completely excusing her predatory behavior on grief, was gross. I’m happy my faves got to play something completely different from their norm, but I’m also ecstatic that this mess of a story is coming to an end. Can’t wait to watch my faves shine as they forge into the future of rebuilding and solidifying their family, hopefully with the adoption of Cameron on the way..

So ready to have Franco back. His quirky personality, combined with his proven readiness to do whatever is needed, include sacrifice himself body and soul, to protect the ones he loves has been sorely missed.

I haven’t watched in months. I decided to watch an episode this weekend. Hard to find an episode that doesn’t prop-up The Permed Parking Lot Poet, or mention Moron Morgan. NuNik is awful. Who is in charge of casting? Yikes.

DMRR, I do not like the new Nickolas either. He’s kind of smarmy, no?

KMB

A totally ridiculous story. How many times are the writers going to create new characters for Roger Howarth? Todd…Franco….Drew and now back to Franco again? I can’t keep up. This whole “Drew’s memories” storyline should have gone to the real Drew, Billy Miller a long time ago. Why the writers didn’t do this I will never know….

I think it’s a shame they’re bringing Franco back. I’d take Roger Howarth’s Drew over tired Franco any day. This arc gave a great actor something interesting to work with. Also I didn’t think they could find a convincing Nikolas, but I love how he’s a little smarmy. The sudden shift to bad guy just before TC left made no sense, but this version of Nik does. Since they bothered to bring him back, the dark side of the prince will be more fun to explore than same old Nik pining over annoying, one-dimensional Elizabeth.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.
