Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the sad and gory death of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) after he was shot in a struggle for a gun with Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

While we now know that actor Roger Howarth will be taking a break from the ABC daytime drama series, but will be continuing on the show (in what role remains to be seen), fans have also been aware of the previously announced return of Chad Brannon, who played Zander Smith (before that character also died), and when the actor made a previous return in the role of Aaron.

A first look photo was posted earlier today by TV Insider which showed Brannon in a scene with William Lipton (Cameron).  In story, Zander is the biological father of Cameron.  Circle the week of March 15th (next week) when Brannon is back on-screen on GH.


In a post on his Instagram, Brannon shared on his return: “Excited for this! Had an incredible time working with @williamlipton ! Watch out for this kind and talented guy…His future is bright! Proud of my “son”! Thanks @generalhospitalabc ! News to come…!”

All of this begs the question, does Zander’s ghost return to help Cameron through the death of Franco? Is Zander alive? What’s going on in this scene?

Especially with the shorter, darker hair, Lipton looks like he could be Brannon’s son.

Mark Teschner (as he almost always does) nailed it in casting Lipton. Appearance and acting.


Not really. Totally different face. I do, however, think William Lipton and Becky Herbst look incredibly alike. She could absolutely be his mom in real life. She still looks so young she could pass for his sister.


I can’t wait to see this beautiful, talented guy back onscreen. For me, he’s like an anti-Peter. And a few years of age have only made him more handsome, as is true with most actors (and non-actors too).

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.


When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
