Brandon Barash On His Way Back To General Hospital?

Over the weekend, rumors escalated via a report from Daytime Confidential that none other than fan favorite, Brandon Barash is set for a return to General Hospital as Johnny Zacchara for a short story arc!

With Port Charles riddled with crime, and the reveal to D.A Baldwin (Kin Shriner) and police commissioner Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) that Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) killed AJ Quartermaine, could Sonny end up behind bars and at Pentonville alongside his arch enemy Johnny Z.?

That would seem to be intriguing, since Connie (formerly played by Kelly Sullivan) set-up Sonny to walk in on her and Johnny which inflamed the already bitter rivalry!  Or, could Johnny’s short story arc have to do with just who is “Fluke”?

Barash is married to GH star Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and the duo share a baby girl together, Harper.

Would you like to see Johnny Zacchara back on the canvas? If so,  how do you think he will be brought into the story? Comment below!

STILL think Fluke is Anthony Zacchara, so this would fit in nicely, hmmmmm?

I said it from the FIRST…and STILL believe FLUKE is AZ…From Heather to Jocelyn…he’s got it in for that ENTIRE group of characters tied to Sonny!!! What if Connie was secretly his niece???

Awesome! It will be nice to have Johnny Z back on screen even if it is only for a short time.

It would be awesome to have Brandon Barash /Johnny back!!!
I know he wouldn’t resign back on but it would be fun to see him again..
IF Sonny gets incarcerated, then Maurice is going on vacation..
But– he would be gone for a short while, Sonny/Maurice is not leaving GH, so no problem.. He will be set free..
Brandon Barash will have a good time, I’d bet..
I really like how FV&RC brings in missed vets… its always fun!

I agree, bring him back and pair him up with his real life lady love, Kristin Storms.
Then hand this talented man some decent material.
Make him play “Moonlight Sonata” on the piano while he dreamily stares off into space trying to chase those demons away.

Forget the mobsters! We want him back as a Maxie love interest.

Not only would I like to see him return, NO ONE I know ever wanted him gone. I have literally never seen a bad word said about Brandon, and the only thing bad I have read about Johnny Zacchara is that the WRITERS destroyed his character, and we were all pretty upset about it.

I’m thrilled he’s returning, but disappointed it’s only for a short arc. I hope they’ll see the error of their ways and bring him back – to stay!

Brando, he is daddy and I assume wanted out of the soaps..
I’m sure RC and FV would love to have Brandon back, thing is-
he might not want to come back ..

Some believe it is the producers who let sonso go, when it was the actor who wanted out and doesn’t want to return, outside of an appearance stay..

I’d love it Brandon wanted to return but doubt it 🙁 ”never say never”!

If he does come back long term or short term, that would be great..The character of Johnny was such a tortured soul and Brandon Barash played him to the hilt…This great talent will always be welcome back!!!

You’re right, Omar. Johnny was so torn from the beginning over his mom’s life and death, his father’s cold hand and “profession”…yet he tended to Anthony and his “garden.” He had that final showdown with his father which was full of conflict…and then his despair/guilt over being responsible for Starr’s boyfriend and daughter’s death..Great story lines…great acting. Looking forward to his return; just anticipating hating to see him go again.

Yes bring Johnny Back! Maybe have him and Sonny break out of prison together! That would be a very exciting story line! The both of them previously enemies working together to escape prison! OR The Governor is visiting the prison. While he is there a full blown riot occurs and the prison is taken over by the prisoners! They take the Governor hostageThey are threatening to kill the Governor and all of the guards unless they are given money and transportation out of prison. Sonny and Johnny work together to overthrow the prisoners in charge and get the others to… Read more »

That is wonderful news, I love Brandon he is a terrific actor. Brandon is very hot, yum yum eye candy lol. On the weekend celebrity dirty laundry on line said, Brandon will be back for a short term arc storyline. I want Brandon back on contract, I missed him so much. Maybe Carly and Johnny can get back together, I would love that so much.

So many great storyline possibilities. I’ve missed Johnny Z. Even a short story arc would be welcome.

This show is dumb.Johnny is in jail for killing ColeandHope who are not characters and haven’t ever been. he killed a man who killed a lot of people and should have gotten a medal. His father..BB was one of the actors on the show I enjoyed watching. will his arc be in jail with Sonny. can johnny please shank Sonny in the prison yard.?please !.Love to see him back with Olivia. keep him and dump sonny.

LOL, Janet. It’d be a crime to hit and run anyone…even if the characters were never onscreen. Johnny killing Sonny’s not going to happen…but I think it’ll be interesting to see if these two clash or bond in the clink!

Brandon Barash is a fantastic actor and Johnny has been sorely missed on GH! I really hope this will lead into Brandon returning full time because I love the character. If GH can bring people back from the dead and find loopholes for so many characters to get out of their crimes, they can find a way to bring Johnny back permanently! In terms of story, I don’t think his return will have to do with the Fluke reveal. I think either Sonny or Carly or whoever ends up in jail will see him. Hopefully it’s Sonny so that Johnny… Read more »

Rebecca its not a crime to hit and run someone who never was PP made sure these characters plus Starr and Todd were never here. They owned them and they took them back. If they were ever there don’t you think the actress who looks like Starr would at least mention them. You cannot kill someone who never was. Johnny killed his father in self defense. The man was a murderering pig. he could be funny but Johnny being in jail for coleandhope is stupid.

Janet…all the characters from OLTL who came as their characters, Starr, Todd and John were there. It is acknowledged that they were there…and that they all left. GH didn’t pretend that those characters never existed…they just had to get rid of them…so they kept the actors, gave them all new names/identities…and we, the fans, had to REALLY suspend our disbelief and ignore the fact that they were all carbon copies of the OLTL three. Which we did. After a while we just accepted that these three are new characters. No reference is made (at least not serioiusly) to their resemblance… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
