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

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))

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.

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!!!

@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.

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

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… Read more »

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

He plays a really good nerdy guy.

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.

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!

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..

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

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.

GH’s Holly Set Ablaze; Show Reveals Stunt Double For Emma Samms From Major Cliffhanger

If you caught the end of Tuesday’s fiery episode of General Hospital, you know that Holly (Emma Samms) who was cornered by the PCPD, ended up on fire when the cabin she was in went up in flames!

In the cliffhanger, Holly was seen on fire coming out of the cabin.  Of course, viewers knew that a stunt double would have to be called in to tape such a moment, and that is exactly what the ABC daytime drama series did.

On Wednesday, GH’s official Instagram released a photo of Samms and stunt performer Colby Lemmo stating: “We’re seeing double! 🔥 Let’s give stunt performer @colby_lemmo a hand for helping bring yesterday’s explosive finale to life. 👏👏👏 ”

Lemmo has performed stunts for major motion pictures and TV shows  including: The Mandalorian, Westworld, Criminal Minds, 9-1-1. and many others.

Now the question becomes, what will happen to Holly? We know that Emma Samms only returned to GH for a limited-run to reprise her signature GH role.

Does this mean that Holly might be recast with a new face, if she is badly burned and disfigured … or is this just an exit strategy where the character gets sent away to heal from her burns … or was that not really Holly who came out of the cabin?  Three possible theories that fans are pondering.

So, what did you think of the fiery conclusion of yesterday’s GH? What do you think will happen to Holly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
