Great news Spinelli fans! Soap Opera Digest is hearing that fan favorite Bradford Anderson is being set to reprise his role of the computer nerd we all know and love on General Hospital!

Fans last saw Anderson, it was around May during the Nurses Ball where after leaving Ellie (Emily Wilson) to try to rekindle something with long time love and mother to his daughter, Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), eventually he reunited with Ellie and left Port Charles, again.

Now with the new writing regime’s scripts about to take hold in the very near future, it looks like Spinelli is being written back into the canvas.

But what will bring Spinelli back?  Will he finally hold an important clue so that “Jake” remembers he is Jason (Billy Miller) in time for November Sweeps? 

Share your thoughts below, and if you are glad Bradford will be making another return to the ABC daytime drama series!

I’m a fan of Spinelli so I think it’s great news this character is back! But, nooooooo…let’s hope Jake realizes he’s Jason before November! It’s beyond ridiculous at this point…

I so agree…do the Jason reveal sooner…dragging it out is why there is a ratings decline!!!

Perhaps, Spinelli will be the catalyst to break through Jake’s buried memories. Could it be that is the reason he’s back? Hmmmmm.

I know…they better get their act together before GH becomes just another memory.

Spinelli looked at Jake’s butt and thought Jason immediately..don’t know what that was about..so he’ll probably be the one to dig up truth with Carly and Sam harping in his ear like the two shrews they are written as…lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

That is hilarious,davlestev. I missed that. Jake’s butt brought memories of Jason to Spinelli’s mind? Perhaps, Jake’s gait….his mode of walking will do the trick.
But, seriously. I agree with you, as I stated above……what other reason would there be for bringing Spin back? It must be to help reveal Jake’s true identity….it could only mean that time is nigh….yes?

)ooh goodie!
Spinelli’s back!
I like him 🙂

((wonder what happend to Port Chuck))

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeayyyyy, su….same here….his brainiac disposition and that certain bashfulness/humility endears him to me…..I dig that. I had a physics teacher who would say, “I can dig that…” whenever I gave him my version of the answer…LOL. Spinelli reminds me of him. So out-there-smart.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I hope his return is better than his last visit which was just to drag out the Maxi/Nathan pairing which is a snooze…i might watch some eps as soon as the new writing team take over…i only watch the last five minutes and previews now!!!

CeeCee

@jimh.
Hey, Jimh. I can understand what you’re saying….I suppose you can only take Spinelli in small doses. But, I’d rather be amused by him than wanting to punch Morgan and Sonny out…LOL.

I hear you, CeeCee!!!! How can one not LOVE Spinelli’s use of unique verbiage, extremely descriptive vocabulary and clever nicknames for Port Charles’ denizens???? His idiosyncratic speech tendencies are what always grabbed me about this most special of characters! Plus, it’s nice to have someone of far above average intelligence (as opposed to the often subpar….) turning up on the GH canvas….let’s face it, Dr. O. can’t pull all the intellectual weight to compensate for the immense number of dullards that populate Port Chuck! (That would be the town, not the band! LOL.)

Yay! I love Spinelli and I hope he and Maxie reunite!

I hope Jake remembers he’s Jason before November but I’ve said this before, maybe Spinelli can come to Sonny and Carly’s wedding and say something that triggers Jake/Jason’s memories that Jake searches out Spinelli and discusses whatever Spinelli had said. Jake has been having flashbacks already and he is right on the verge of remembering. It would only take someone like Spinelli who was Jason’s friend to help open up the flood gates. I love Sonny/Jason/Spinelli interactions. Bring Spinelli home to Port Charles.

Who cares? This character is useless. nerdy guy bad actor. ABC just pull the plug and cancel Gh. Bring back one Life To Live.

Anthony

From your lips to God’s ear! I agree 100%!! GH out – OLTL in!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, now, Erin. I will always mourn OLTL, and hope against hope it could return, but, realistically, it’s not going to happen. I am a relatively new fan of GH….I love it……I critique many of the characters and storylines, as I do my other two remaining soaps…..but, I do not want GH gone from the soap world or the land of television.
I understand we all get frustrated, believe me, most storylines move as slow as molasses, but I do enjoy GH. Hang in there. LOL.

Hey Erin FrankenRon tried their damndest to turn GH into OLTL . Look at the ratings.

There’s no way oltl can return and be that show you loved so it’s pointless to want it to come back, even the online version was bad.

I adore bradford and his character. however, what started bothering me, is when they started writing him as a lead character, rather than as a supporting character. when, they started giving him as much screen time as jason, i started getting very bored. i love this character, but sparilngly and in a supportive role. and when they started to write him, even as a hunk i thought that was odd. i have no prob admitting that i don’t watch an entire soap for a character like spinelli. he adds to the humor and wit. however, i have no prob admitting that i would never tune into a whole show to watch spinelli. i want to see him in a fun loving supportive role, the way he was originally written. not as a lead 🙂

Very good point. Maybe thats the key to digesting his antics.

I think Spinelli is an integral part of the Jake/Jason reveal.
It would only make sense.

So glad to hear he’s coming back.

He plays a really good nerdy guy.

I hope he brings Jason back to us.

Spinelli makes me SMILE.

SOOOO glad Brad’s coming back (let’s hope for good). Sam, the PCPD, organized crime, you name ’em…all need the Jackal’s mad skills. Maybe things will actually get resolved with his help. Maybe he came come back and identify Jake/Jason’s behind again.

Lets just hope he is the toned down Spin. That mouth , like the old Maxie’s made my FF finger itch. I like the actor , but if he is coming back to kiss Jason’s butt. fergetaboutit. Guza is gone let it stay that way.

Timmm

Spinelli was to me, a one trick pony. Too much! However, if you bring him in and use him in small doses and have him be part of the Jason reveal, okay. Plus, I would like to see Hayden get a hold of the Jackyl and use him as her chew toy!

su0000

hey Timmm..
did you not notice how RC had calmed down Spin? Looks like a turn for him..
RC also took away Olivia’s strong bronx accent, she is more sophisticated now.
RC has mellowled and softened Dr. O .. her accent is no longer as prominent.

I am looking forward to a calmer Spin..

Aria

So is he coming back full time or just another guest appearance?

Derek

Guest appearance Aria, I hope Spinelli gets shot and dies. He is very annoying and I hope Dr. O shoots him or give the sob an injection. Lol. Calling Heather Webber where is my BLT sandwich Lol.

I’m a huge Spinelli fan, and I’m glad he’s coming back! But hopefully this return isn’t like his most recent one. Spinelli as a vindictive, manipulative person is NOT the real Spinelli. Now that new writers are on board, maybe they’ll redeem his character after all the trouble he caused for Maxie and Nathan, and even his relationship with Ellie. My bet is that he’ll be back for when Jake is FINALLY revealed as Jason, which will hopefully happen before November Sweeps.

Kay

I like Spinelli I’m glad he is coming back, I’m with a lot of others why wait until the Nov sweep for the reveal of Jason. why drag it out

dee

I love BA and his character, Spinnelli. Unfortunately, this is just a short visit to help with the Jason reveal. RC sucks. They brought back Spin just to mess with the Spixie fans and the Spixie lovestory. His last on screen appearance was ridiculous. Nathan is growing on me but he’s just too perfect and Maxie is boring with him. My hope for the Jason reveal was for Sam and “Jake” somehow both end up at the Chinese restaurant that they got married at on their Wedding Anniversary and the memories just flood back to Jake to where he passes out, Sam rushes him to GH and Liz has to hear him asking for Sam as he is waking up. But that aint happening.

GH needs someone like spinilli to give the show the humor and action this show has been lacking. Please replace Valerie and Kiki neither does anything for the show. Get some real acting going. Give spin a bar so he can sing I miss the entertainment. Not interested in discussing yet another social issue with bipolar sorry. Seen enough of Sonny and Carly’s weddings. There’s so much unused talent here remember the old GH? Utilize the seasons, don’t worry about offending someone.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
