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.

Glad to hear this

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.

His late return was terrible. Hoping this time it’s better!

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.

So hAppy you are bringing Bradford back he is very good at acting and so funny and smart!! Can’t wait!!

Yeah!!!!!!!!! Love Spinelli. I hope he gets a contract and stays. Let the fun begin

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

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: Max Gail Turns In Another Emmy-Worthy Performance As Mike’s Battle With Alzheimer’s Takes Its Toll

For any of us who have seen our loved ones deteriorate right before our eyes, due to the horrific affects of Alzheimer’s, and have been witness to their confusion, dementia, angry outbursts, frightened looks, and uncontrollable tears, yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a stark reminder of how this disease is a gut-punch to those afflicted and their family members.

For several months, GH viewers saw a bit less of Mike; played brilliantly by recent Daytime Emmy Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, Max Gail.  And smartly, the writers have taken the time to advance Mike’s condition …. as at this point he doesn’t recognize his son, his family, his friends, and more.  For Mike, he is living in the past spirally backward and downward.

When Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) go to visit Mike at Turning Woods, it’s clear  how much he is suffering.  When Dev plays a checkers game with Mike it seems to calm him down, but when Sonny (Maurice Benard) enters, all hell breaks loose.  Mike thinks his son is actually one of their mortal enemies Joe Scully.

Earlier, at the Corinthos home, Michael (Chad Duell) sees that Sonny is considering entering his father in a clinical trial. Sonny says he knows it won’t cure the disease, but hopes the drugs in the trial can slow its progression.  In a key question, any family member needs to ask themselves, Michael asks Sonny to think first, if this is the man Mike would want to be?  Michael shares that Mike is no longer himself and sadly, there is no coming back from that.

All this becomes more poignant when Sonny sees first-hand how far Mike has slid.  Will Sonny be able to come to terms with losing Mike to Alzheimer’s?  How will he deal with it?  Gail’s partner in this entire storyline has been GH icon, Maurice Benard, who delivers poignant work throughout this story in very contained, emotional moments of deep hurt and pain, as Sonny watches the father he knew become lost in himself and to others.

Watch the key scenes below from yesterday’s GH below featuring Gail.  Then, let us know, do you think Max could end up in the running for another Daytime Emmy for his work?  Comment below.

A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

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?

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
