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 haven’t watched in years mid 90’s, but what about Bobbie? What has become of her?
Since Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati have taken over and OLTL is gone.. I started back to GH today.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Absolutely thrilled!!! I love, love, love Rick Springfield. Wish he would stay longer or recur more often! I wish everyone would be more positive about gh staying on the air. It has not been cancelled yet so keep hope alive! Bringing back beloved characters both from the past and from oltl is a step in the right direction!

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.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
