Courtesy: BradMauleTwitter

There is official confirmation today that Brad Maule is returning to General Hospital in his signature soap role as Dr. Tony Jones.  The event will take place sometime in November when Tony appears to his adopted son, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in a pivotal moment.

The character of Tony was killed-off the Port Charles canvas back in 2006 when he died of encephalitis.

Brad lives in Austin tx he is a super guy great actor can’t believe Frank would use him I think he use to be a conservative radio host ! Lordy those flaming liberals can’t allow that ! Great to see you Brad show those idiots how to act on that show ! Bravo! You got robbed of a Emmy for the BJ story those were the days

Frankly, I blame Obama for killing off Tony Jones. I also blame him for the deaths of Alan and AJ Quartmermaine.

That’s hilarious Harry. Yes, I read Kay’s comments and thought why is she injecting flaming Liberals into the return Tony Jones. Nice way to handle it!

I know you are just attempting to take a stab at humor there, Harry, but even those of us who don’t like “your president” realize that Tony Jones was killed off during “George W’s” administration…hence you missed a great Bush-bashing opportunity there, since as I recall, everything was 43’s fault according to the left! Having said that, I don’t think it would be far-fetched to suggest that AJ’s abrupt death—- and particularly his seemingly highly-unlikely resurrection—-have some connection to Sean Kanan’s stated political beliefs and appearances on conservative talk shows. Despite remaining one of GH’s most popular legacy characters who certainly would be welcomed back to Port Charles with open arms by many, many viewers, Kanan is still apparently non-persona grata on the GH soundstage…a status he currently shares with not only Jack Wagner, but a few other past leading men from the show’s glory days who have either implied or outright expressed their support for Republicans. Coincidence??? I think NOT!

Hollywood is a liberal love fest! Their mob-like president is De Niro and his right hand man is Baldwin.

Also, it was Obama in the grassy knoll. Sure, he was in diapers and sure, he lived in Kenya, and yet, there he was.

@Kay….God Bless You!….Although I have no particular devotion to either Tony Jones or Brad Maule, you certainly have the guts to say out loud what a lot of us think in reference to the casting decisions made at GH….It’s pretty obvious that Republican-leaning actors are considered undesirables in the Port Charles sphere, and the few current/recently departed players that I suspect of harboring such political views have out of necessity kept a very dignified silence regarding their opinions for the sake of self-preservation.

GH is making casting decisions based on people’s political beliefs? Sorry, that is one of the most ridiculous, asinine things I’ve ever heard in my life. They currently employ numerous people both in front of and behind the camera who would identify as Republican or conservative, and you don’t have to look very hard to know who they are, either. So honestly, stop with this made up conspiracy theory nonsense.

Brian, how dare you come in here and make perfect sense!?

I never heard of this man, not a clue to him.
Apparently he will be a ghost just in time for Halloween LOL..
Anyways..
Don’t anyone put blame on Julian, Brad lied to him, also.
As for Julian;
He’s not Blackmailing Brad, he simply threatened him..
Bard could have come forth at any time with the truth, Julian is not to blame for Brad’s cowardness and deceit.

If I were writing the story;’
Julian would have punched him upside the head and forced Brad to tell Lucas the truth a long time ago.
Have you ever noticed;
most soap characters are weak and suckers, well they are. lol

So- it’s still better than watching Carly and all talking about Donna;
(a brain-draining boring story from the git-go.)

I agree with you, Suoo. That mouth breather Brad pulled Julian into his scheme. I cannot stand Brad–Lucas is way too good for that creep. And I will never be able to erase the sight of mouth breathing Brad in his black, bikini underwear.

Harry and suOOO
You are so right. I hate that little slimy Brad and have since he and the britch did what they did to Lulu. How much you wanna bet, she will come out of the woodwork to help him out when everything falls around his ears? I could never understand the coupling of he and Lucas, who is such a great guy, though naive and seems to live in a cocoon.

They make Julian into a pansy. Why? He can be out of the mob but still be a hard ass! He should have slapped Brad a long time ago!

Classic GH! Kill off a long timer unnecessarily, and then toss long time fans a scrap with a ghost. Its not enough.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been so angry about a television spoiler because after having watched GH religiously for decades, I permanently turned it off in disgust when in 2013, Frisco Jones and Robin Scorpio were trashed by TPTB. Since then, I’ve seen news about the show on social media, but this tidbit has me triggered. I do NOT want Tony Jones to come back to a show run by people who have no problem destroying returning vets for the fun of it and using them to prop their OLTL pets. Tony Jones belongs to the Golden Era of GH and I want to cry that he’s now going to be at the mercy of a regime that has long ago destroyed what made this show #1 and so special.

Shay

I could not agree with you more, Lillian! What was done to besmirch and belittle the character of Frisco Jones was especially revolting! (And it continues to this day with the snarky little offhanded remarks by Mac, Felicia, et al…) Jack Wagner’s star-making role was one of GH’s finest and most popular during the heyday of the soap, and it was extremely offensive to see both the actor and his singing secret agent treated with such utter disrespect during his much anticipated and far-too-brief return. As far as Tony Jones goes, I say let the dead rest in peace and bring back to Port Charles his very alive brother in order to rectify the slights brought against his character time and time again!

Thank you for the reply and support of my comment. With all due respect, while I understand your desire to see Frisco Jones redeemed through another return to GH, I would not hold my breath for a number of reasons. First, this regime had every opportunity to honor Frisco Jones (and his fans) when they managed to get him to agree to return for a short visit after an 18 year absence. They chose instead to denigrate, disparage, mock, and humiliate him in order to make the lacklustre Mac Scorpio appear to be a viable alternative for Felicia when all previous writers had failed to do so in 20 something years. What makes you think they would change course if they ever had another chance especially given that Frisco is still living the exciting life of running a covert operations agency while Felicia’s bff Mac is probably at Target excitedly purchasing new barware for The Floating Rib’s next senior citizen Bingo Night as I write this? Second, I think it highly unlikely that Jack Wagner would ever agree to return to this cesspool again after making it absolutely clear how disgusted he was by how his iconic character was depicted in 2013. The man left GH in 1991 and went on to have a successful career on other shows, both daytime and primetime, as well as in the theatre and on stage playing his music. He has never needed GH like others have for a paycheck and only came back in 2013 to honor the show that kickstarted his career. Most recently, he has been on contract with Crown Media as an Executive Producer and main character in his own tv movie series and is a lead character on the Hallmark Network’s hit show When Calls The Heart. I really don’t think Jack will ever agree to come back to GH unless he had control of the story they wrote for Frisco, and given that Frank Valentini likes to control every single aspect of the show, that would never happen. Sooo, my suggestion would be to content yourself with your memories of how beautiful the show used to be when characters like Frisco and Felicia were a centrepiece supercouple instead of the “couplings” of today like Micheal and Sasha, quit the show, and watch youtube. That’s what I do 🙂

And thank you for your very eloquent response, Lillian! Once again, we are on the exact same page, as I do realize that my wish for the triumphant return of Frisco Jones to Port Charles is more than likely just a pipedream. As you have pointed out, not only does Jack Wagner have a multitude of better things to do than come back to daytime, but the current GH regime has made their negative feelings toward the character and the actor abundantly clear with their snotty little asides that have been tossed into the show’s dialogue for some time now. Having said that, I do believe had the conditions been right, Wagner would have been willing to do another appearance simply to correct the damage done to Frisco’s image and as a courtesy to his loyal fans who still regard that character as one of GH’s best ever! Of course, we will probably never experience that reality…thus, as you have stated, we must simply make do with the magic of the past on You Tube where Frisco and his music are just as enjoyable now as back in the day!

YES!!! I am excited to hear this bit of news!!! I always thought it was bogus when they killed off Tony and never understood how his death could move story forward So glad we get to see the character again even if it’s a ghostly type of visit.

It will be wonderful to see Brad Maule on screen again. GH does the “dead character appears as a ghost” bit a lot, but it’s been 13 years since Brad last appeared, so it will be meaningful, particularly for longtime fans.

Tony was one of my favorite characters when I started watching GH in the early 90s. All these years later, I still get emotional when I think of that scene with Tony putting his head on Maxie’s chest to hear BJ’s heart beating after the heart transplant. You know something was well done when it still touches you 25 years later. They simply don’t write them like that anymore. God bless you, Claire Labine!

I remember Tony’s death scene being particularly sad as well, when he was dying in the hospital bed, and saw a vision of BJ and said “She said it’s time to go.” right before he passed. One of the best soap death scenes ever. I remember that was during the time when the Phelps/Guza regime were not writing for the vets at all, and Brad said if you’re not gonna write for Tony, kill him off. I always respected him for taking that stand, even though it was a shame to lose him from the show.

Hopefully Ghost Tony can put an end to this baby switch dragonshit storyline. Tony’s not down here in Hell, but if we keep track of things in Port Charles, you can bet they know about it upstairs as well.

I figured it out.
Brad is an awsome actor, he’s coming back because he owes a favor or he needs money.

The creepy mongers, are so desparite to make ratings or money, that they think each infomercial scene, will keep people caring. Stupid stories, sucking depth of story, hoping to catch the ADDT
generation….but they are mostly on Pharmas, that prevent them from giving attention to a storey…or following one.

Let’s face it folks, Storey telling gone from our world atleast from TV, and the stupid attempts these stupid producers are using to ‘last another week’ LAME.

Lets hope THEY give BRAD mucho moulah, and enough work to stay on the show, til it eventually ends. By then most of the world will be on pharma anyway, thank you Obama. Lots will remain slaves Hillary, and most of the rest will be Zombies, thank you Oprah.

Gays will always be gay, even thought GH made them look like morons @ drag bingo.

ABC, goodbye

I loved Tony and Tonya. What a great era. BUT, Tony, like Tonya are gone. I hate that he is being brought back as a ghost. It is cheap and quite frankly a slap in the face! But, its Brad’s choice. He knows what he is doing. Maybe its just a little gift for us long time fans? I just wish he would have come back permanently as Tony’s never mentioned older brother who ALSO is a doctor. Can you imagine him at GH at the nurses station and Bobbi gets off the elevator and she sees him? Oh wait, that would mean focusing on veteran GH actors! AND, we would push Valenti’s AMC and OLTL actors into the background!

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Courtesy/ABC

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

Brooklyn Rae Silzer Making A Return To General Hospital

As General Hospital continues to surprise its viewers with some notables from the show’s history, look for another fan favorite, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) to make her way back to Port Charles for an appearance coming up next month.

Excited to finally be able to announce she will reappear on GH, Silzer tweeted: “Dreams come true! Thank you so much @GeneralHospital @valentinifrank for having me back!”

Emma Scorpio Drake’s return is scheduled for Thursday, February 6th, but due to coverage of the President Donald Trump impeachment trial and current episodes being pushed back, this date may change.

The last time viewers saw Emma was back in 2018, when she came to town to visit her grandmother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) for Christmas.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas & Spencer’s Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated reunion of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and his son, Spencer aired on Monday’s episode of General Hospital.  And it reminded us all how much we love Nicolas Bechtel as the young Cassadine.

While Ava (Maura West) first talks with Spencer in order to prepare him for his father’s appearance and that he is alive; when Nikolas shows up and receives a hug from Spencer, it appeared all might be OK between them, but how could it be? Nikolas let his son believe he was dead for over three years!

Next, Spencer lays into his father for choosing claiming the Cassadine fortune and keeping hidden over telling him that he was alive; leaving Spencer alone with two broken legs, in a boarding school in Europe, and grief-stricken.

The best scenes were actually shared by Maura West and Bechtel, when Ava tries to reason with the disappointed and disillusioned young man over his father’s return, which has a double meaning for her.  She says, “The person you love most in the world just came back to you. That makes you the luckiest boy on the planet. Can’t you see that?”  For Ava, she is obviously drawing a parallel to her losing her daughter, Kiki and wishing she was alive.
