Adam Huss Makes Another Return to General Hospital as Nikolas Cassadine

Nikolas Cassadine will be back on your screens next week but now via Pentonville. That means, that actor Adam Huss is back for a visit for all-new episodes of General Hospital.

In story, Ava (Maura West) comes to visit her ex in the slammer. So, just what does Ava want now? She clearly has been working an agenda on Sonny (Maurice Benard). Is she working with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart)? What will she tell Nikiolas? stay tuned.

Meanwhile, once news of Huss’ return broke earlier on Friday via Soap Opera Digest, he also announced his return on his Instagram expressing, “For all those who’ve been asking, cat’s out of the bag;) Thank you to all my #Nikolas #GH fans for your unwavering support. I don’t take it for granted for a second! (Even when I can’t answer 😊) #generalhospital”

Huss took over the role of Nikolas back in January of 2023, after Marcus Coloma left the soap opera. Previous to that, Huss filed in for Coloma in September of 2021 and November of 2022. Fast-forward to January of 2024, Nikolas gave Ace to Laura and Kevin to raise, while he eventually turned himself into the police for kidnapping Esme and keeping her hostage while she was pregnant and Wyndemere.

The return of Huss comes on the heels of multiple reports that his on-screen son, Nicholas Chavez is not returning to the show as Spencer Cassadine, while in story Spencer is believed to have drowned int the Seine River after falling off a boat in France, when drugged by Esme.

So, looking forward to seeing Adam Huss back as Nikolas? Do you think GH will eventually have him more full-time? Comment below.

It’s dumb; just let Nikolas go free. All the actual criminal on GH are walking free for decades, including Ava who thought she killed him and left him to rot, but Nikolas is locked up? Laura now has three kids gone; Lulu in a coma, Nikolas in jail, Lucky living his best life whatever country he landed in, and Spencer, to her mind, dead. The show is doing a great job, not, of eliminating another legacy family. Just bring back Nikola and Spencer with good actors and get these legacy families going again. So sick of them wiping out GH characters to bring on new ones with no ties to the show’s history.

Still hoping for an edit option. Criminals, not criminal. Lucky living his best life IN whichever country… Nikolas, not Nikola

Exactly!! It’s so ridiculous!

Bring back Spencer, even if he has to be ReCast!…

If Cyrus can claim a “religious” exemption to prison, and Frodd & Heather – two serial killers – can get pardoned for “medical” reasons, then whatever Nikolas did pales in comparison. What was he charged with anyway? Locking Psycho Esme up in his castle, when all the evidence pointed to her being the Hooker killer?

On the other horn Drew got locked up for a “crime” that wasn’t even a crime (merger of two family companies that went south??) and Michael was tried & convicted as an adult when he was 17 and barely recovered from a coma, for the NON-crime of defending his mother & newborn sister from a total psychopath. And, of course, we know what happened to both Drew & Mikey while in prison. We also know the judges in both of those cases were paid off.

Yep; and I’d be fine if they never locked any of our main cast up, with the exception of Carly. How many decades will she get away with all the crimes she’s pulled? (One of my fondest GH memories was when she was put in the mental ward for being accused of “pushing Nelle down the stairs.”) But why wasn’t she arrested for kidnapping Martin Grey’s mother! How is kidnapping Esme more of a crime than taking an old, sick, lady from her nursing home to use as leverage? And why didn’t Martin press charges against Carly? We know why; let’s all say it together: “Carly gets away with everything. She never pays.” And what’s with Laura? Ava asked her if she speaks to Nikolas and she’s like, “meh, not too much but sometimes.” OK; not verbatim but what kind of an answer was that???

The BEST move GH could do.. give Adam Huss a real change to let him be “Nicholas”. He proved himself with the baby Ace and Laura scenes.

Welcome back Adam, locking forward to seeing on GH.

As much as I enjoy GH, I don’t understand why they keep bringing him back for a few days and then…nothing. He is a great actor, chemistry with Laura, Ava, Ace and being a legacy character, keep him on the show. I love Jason being back, but we need Nic, Lulu and Brennon on the show. Get rid of a few dead weight characters. Also, why does every man have to be in love with Carly. Let’s show some love for Ava, Alexis and Jordan.

Given the timing I’m thinking this sudden transfer of Nikolas to an “out of state prison” is a plot point to provide the excuse for Laura to eventually leave town for her annual summer vacation.

Last year she was looking for him in vain. At least this time she will know where he is.

Laura’s got to be up for re-election soon. Be fun to have her opponent ask what kind of mayor disappears every summer for about 3 months?

I will be glad to see Adam back on the show as Nikolas! He’s great! Hope this means he’ll be back on full time soon.

Seems as if they just used him for Ava to have someone to confide in, now that she’s lost Nina whose busy with Drew. I’d love to see Nikolas being able to be with Leo again, now that we know Spencer will not be returning to PC. I suppose Trina will not be responsible enough to watch Leo, which makes sense, she’s such an air-head, I couldn’t believe Laura just handed that baby over to her.

Always happy to see Adam Huss on the show! They really should recast Lucky and then have an epic brotherly feud between the two with Laura as peacemaker.

Adam Huss should return on regular basis with Spencer gone from the canvas. No Spencer recast please…

Spencer is the new generation of the Cassadines, a legacy family. If Chavez is not coming back, they should absolutely recast. They also need to bring back Nikolas and a few other Cassadines. What I don’t want to happen is for Spencer to get so under the thumb of Trina’s family that the Cassadine stories come to an end.

I agree with the majority of fans here. I’m happy to see Adam reprise the role of Nicholas, but I wish it was on a long term basis. I keep hoping these new writers will bring back Nicholas, Lucky and Lulu full-time. Yes, recast the roles if the needed. We need more of the legacy families back on the show. I would also like to see some Hardys/Webbers return to the show.

OMG, if they can’t give us the real thing, which is impossible, a new charactor is better than a new face with an old name. Would you really welcome Steve Hardy with a new actor’s face? Bad enough we are getting a new and improved Heather Webber. Unless she reverts back to her old ways, she will be a new character.Lulu can stay gone, she’ll just be trouble for Dante and Sam. Thankfully, Val shipped the bratty Charlotte back to boarding school. Sorry, guess I’m more interested in the present and upcoming story-lines.

It would be nice to see “Steven Lars” return; Liz’s brother. I personally would like to see them try to get actors back who played legacy characters: Dillon Q, Skye, I’d love them to bring back AJ without killing him off again!!!!, and yes, we need Nikolas and Spencer. If not, the Cassadines will be done. As for “the present,” so many characters have nothing to do with GH’s history; and the daytime soap genre has always been about continuity of legacy families and multi-generations. I’m sick of the writers trying to wipe out what GH has always been as they bring on new, unrelated, characters. It’s like watching a schizophrenic show…one foot in the past and then a different show with no connection to it.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Confronts Finn On His Drinking After Gregory’s Death

The saga of the aftermath of Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) death continuesdon the Thursday May 23rd episode of General Hospital. At Finn’s (Michael Easton), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who knows he has lost his sobriety and has been drinking, attempts to tell the good doctor that she cares about him too much to let him throw away seven years sober.

Finn lashes out at Liz and tells her she doesn’t get to tell him when he is allowed to drink. Liz says she’s looking out for Violet (Jophielle Love) as he in turns looks out for her boys. Finn announces that Liz can stay here and make bracelets with Violet or leave. Next, he opens the door, and she walks out.

Immediately, Liz calls Chase (Josh Swickard) telling him to get over to Finn’s as his brother really needs him.  Meanwhile at the Q’s, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) gives a tender hug to her dad, Ned (Wally Kurth) because she can’t bear the thought of losing him.

Now back at Finn’s, he takes another drink and Violet emerges with the friendship bracelet and inquires where did Aunt Elizabeth go? Finn covers for the situation and says Liz got called back to the hospital, but she can show the bracelet she made to her later.

Just then, Chase and Brook Lynn finally show up. Surveying the situation, Brook Lynn can see that Finn has been drinking. She takes Violet for a walk so the two brothers can be alone.

Chase wants to know what happened, “step by step.” He shoots a look at the bottle of booze and says to Finn, “I mean everything that happened.” Finn tells him that Violet was at school and he came upon their father, dead in his bed.  At the point, Finn also admits he had a drink, maybe more than one, although it’s been such an emotional day he is not sure how many he has had. In addition, Finn did not cop to taking a sip of champagne at his brother’s wedding reception, which started this downfall.

Now the question becomes, what will Finn ask Chase to do? Cover for him? Help him to a meeting? Will he get rid of his brother quickly so he can continue his downward spiral? Weigh-in and share your theory via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Finn Tells Violet That Gregory Passed, While Elizabeth Sees He Has Been Drinking

The raw emotions continued on the Wednesday, May 22nd episode of General Hospital as Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase (Josh Swickard) try to come to grips with the death of their father, Gregory (Gregory Harrison).

In story, Gregory passed away in his sleep and his battle with ALS came to its conclusion. In the pick-up, Finn now has to tell his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) that her grandfather had passed when she returned home from school.

Gingerly, Finn does his best to explain to Violet what happened. Finn tells her that her grandfather’s heart stopped beating, and he wasn’t in pain. Violet bursts into tears saying that she wants Grandpa to still be here and runs into his room calling out for him. Then, in very touching scenes, Finn follows Violet. She asks her dad where her Grandpa is. Finn explains the paramedics took him away. She cries that she didn’t get the chance to even say goodbye.

Next, Finn hugs Violet and tells his little girl that life is so beautiful, but sometimes it’s unfair. He carries Violet back to the living room, but passes by the bottle of booze. He sits her down on the couch and tells her there will be a funeral in a few days so they will get to say goodbye to Grandpa together. When Violet asks where her Grandpa is now, Finn says he is in heaven.

Later, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) shows up and hugs Violet and Finn. She can see right away that Finn has been drinking, especially after eyeing the glass, and the bottle on the counter. Getting Violet out of the room for a moment, Liz tells Finn she can’t even imagine the pain he must be in right now. So, he should go to a meeting and Violet will come home with her for the night.

Finn puts his foot down that Violet will stay with him. He just watched two total stranger, the paramedics, take his dad away. He says he took one drink to ease his pain. Finn stands up to Liz and says he thinks given the circumstances he has a right to do whatever it takes to get through the day. Next, Liz says she can’t stop him, but she will not have him get drunk with his daughter in the apartment, and so, she is taking Violet with her.

Elsewhere, Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) decide at the airport to head back to the Quartermaines, and not take off for their honeymoon, since Gregory died. When they show up at the Q’s, Chase says he wants to be with his brother, but he is giving him time to tell Violet. Next, the newlyweds are greeted by Ned (Wally Kurth) and Lois (Rena Sofer). They tell the two the truth, leaving everyone stunned or in tears. Chase heads out to find Tracy.

Meanwhile, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is holding on to her good luck charm from Gregory as her reinstatement hearing begins. Little does she know, he has passed away. Alexis finds out she is in a court battle with Fergus Byrne (Lane Davies), the brother of the late Neil Byrne.

So, what did you think of the performances of Jophielle Love and Michael Easton in the touching scenes between Violet and Finn? Will Finn end up on a complete bender? Will his brother Chase show up in time to help him? Comment below.
