And the big returns keep a-coming under the new regime of Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati as they try and breathe some life and ratings into the ailing General Hospital!

Word today out exclusively from EW.com is that popular 80’s icon and fan favorite, Rick Springfield is checking back into General Hospital for a few episodes to see his son, Dr. Patrick Drake, played by Jason Thompson.  Springfield will return to the set in February.  From the looks off this, it would seem with the upcoming departure of Kimberly McCullough (Robin) from the canvas, the older Dr. Drake may be needed to help his family!

General Hospital fans will recall that the last time Noah was in PC he had a drinking problem and needed help, which lead him off the canvas.  So now with Tristan Rogers, Finola Hughes, Emma Samms and Rick Springfield making visits or staying longer term, there should be plenty of drama to tune-in to GH come mid-February through March for starters!

What do you think of Rick’s return to GH?

I AM a loyal soap fan!!! I’ve been through both AMC & OLTL being cancelled! Open your eyes! The same thing happened with them! They brought back all the old characters to say goodbye! And the time slot is already been given away to Katie Couric! Face the facts! We shouldn’t get fooled like last time by false hope & false promises! Don’t be so stupid!

Well the ratings for GH have gone up since your last comment were posted…… You say you are a loyal soap fan and so am I… But I have a different feelings abot gh being cancelled or not…The Revolution ratings are horrid… There’s at least a good chance GH could take The revolution’s time slot at 2:00pm this coming fall..We can’t give up…. I try to have a positive attitude… Maybe GH will pull threw and surprise everyone… It’s not over till it’s over…I hope we are not dissappointed for a third time…I e-maile a lot of the big wigs of abc disney today. .. See what happens with that.. I think they are afraid to answer, because they know I am right.. Or they simply don’t care…They better care abc because they will have a riot on their hands if they don’t keep GH on ABC….The saying goes: THREE STRIKES AND YOUR OUT!!!!!!!!! Do they really want this to happen????? I guees they don’t mind losing MILLIONS of VIEWERS…. They are soooooooo foolish & they are clueless… They are having(ABC) many blonde moments!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO excited for Rick’s return! I want Noah to meet Emma, and I’m thrilled Patrick will have the support of his father around during such a difficult time. It’s only for two episodes (per RS’s twitter account) but I’m hoping he could squeeze in some time for Matt while he’s at it. Noah has been sorely missed and though he should have been invited back a long time ago, I’m super pumped for his return to GH.

On a side note, the last time Noah left he did NOT have a drinking problem. SOD also said that on their site and it’s WRONG. Last time (2008) we saw him, Matt was revealed to be his son and he and Anna were starting a tryst. We didn’t hear from him again until just recently when Matt got his journal and a phone call from him. Even at Scrubs’ wedding in Dec 2008 (and Nov 2008, for the first one) there was barely a mention of him. But it was NOT because of alcohol, as far as we know. Just thought I’d clear that up.

Frank’s work started to air this past Monday. Ron’s work will air later this month.

I know that Days reboot was largely a failure. But I’m hopeful that GH’s reboot will be more successful.

I love that Rick Springfield is back on GH as Noah Drake. I hope he stays for awhile if not FOREVER! Even if he’s only on once in awhile,it would be better than not having him on at all. Patrick needs him now.

In story, Octavia Spencer stars as Poppy Parnell, a relentless investigative reporter who looks to uncover the truth behind a decades-old questionable murder verdict through her new podcast. Caplan plays twin sisters Josie and Lanie, whose father’s murder decades ago is examined on the podcast. Paul plays convicted murderer Warren Cave, whose guilt or innocence has remained a question in many people’s minds for the past 20 years.

Miller will play the role of Lanie’s husband, Alex Dunn.

Elizabeth Perkins, Mekhi Phifer, Michael Beach, Tracie Thoms, Haneefah Wood and Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) also co-star in the series.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
