The news comes in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands everywhere on Friday.

According to SOD, Mills will be playing a mystery role and will first appear later this month on GH.

Esme’s mother

Or the nanny?

Elizabeth’s mother?

Three possibilities here… 1) We know that Holly is going to appear later this month. As far as we know, she’s still being held prisoner on Cassadine Island. Somebody has to be in charge of her there, and the guards who were holding Drew prisoner are all dead, aren’t they? 2) Now that Esme has resurfaced, it’s a probability that somebody has helped her to stay hidden all this time. Possibly this “Maggie” person who she had the box full of letters from, who apparently was a nanny who helped raise Esme. 3) Elizabeth Webber’s mother Carolyn…. a woman who… Read more »

While many of us have been clamoring for Elizabeth to have more family around (and my first guess went to Mills as Carolyn), Maggie or Virginia seem more likely. Perhaps even Charity Gatlin-Holt.

I forgot all about Charity. I could have sworn that Austin said both of his parents were dead, but that creepy skinhead cousin of his has made several references to a female “boss”, in a business that is apparently “family owned & operated”, so that does leave an opening for Charity…or some other previously unknown family member.

Given a choice, I’d say Elizabeth needs family more than any of the newbies do.

I’m sure she will have something to do with the Carly/Florida storyline

Oh Nancy, I’m getting so confused trying to connect all these stories. I guess I’m gonna have to start listening more closely, which will be hard since I normally fast-forward Drew and Carly together.

I Bet it’s Virginia Benson

Only if they’re doing flashback scenes. There’s no need to bring her back from the dead. If it’s flashbacks they will probably have Joss playing the teen Carly again, like they did when they created the backstory for Psycho Nelle out of thin air.

Absolutely delighted by this!!! She’s such a lovely lady and a great talent.

She was actually in at least one episode of B&B this year 2022. This past summer after Quinn and Eric broke up Quinn confronted Donna at Forrester and Charlie and Pam were there.

Elena Cassidine

The only way that works is if the actual Helena made a clone of herself that was 30 years younger than the original.

A Helena recast would be a waste of time. An age inappropriate recast would be cause to fire a head writer (like when “Frank Smith” last appeared and he looked younger than Luke Spencer… the writer responsible for that mess was dismissed shortly after… and is now wrecking Days of Our Lives)

I think she will turn out to be Esmes nanny that she’s been corresponding with.

Miss seeing her on B&B. Glad to see she’s getting out there after the death of her husband.

Good for Ms. Mills. She is good in everything. As we never see Pam or have her integrated in story, the actress needs a new gig. Looking forward!

Heather Webber!?!?!? Nobody had that one in mind. Since Robin Mattson couldn’t return, Mills might be a good choice. Time will tell.

As a longtime viewer, I’m flabbergasted that both Jeff and Heather return on the same episode (albeit in separate?) storylines.

Steven Lars, where are you?

This is why I hate it when they recast “long gone” characters. No judgements on NuJeff yet, since he’s only managed to say one word. But that ain’t Heather Webber. Heather never had a New York accent…. let alone a really BAD one. I’m sure this is some sort of Halloween gimmick and she’ll be gone by Tuesday, but I’m not sure why they even bothered.

Well, if they’re going to bring back Jeff after 40 years, they better have him interact with Heather.

There’s a mention in the previews for the week ahead of Scotty having an unexpected encounter. Sure that will be Heather deriding him for Franco’s death.

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.

Share your thoughts on the closing of the case on Harrison Wagner’s death, and send your continued condolences to Jack and Kristina via the comment section below.

The Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund notes that if you have a loved one that is in need of help with their substance abuse, please give them call at 888-977-4549 to learn more about the recovery options available.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.
