Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Photo: JPI

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I think it was all done for the departure of Billy Miller as Drew Cain. I for one will not be looking for a replacement.

I also am happy to see her she is a beautiful great actress n maybe this flash back will finally let the fans see that Drew was not involved in with Faison in the memory mapping that he was a victim n that it was Shiloh that drugged Drew n brought him to Helena n Faison in order to get money for bring them Jason’s twin n that it was also away to have Drew not be able to report Shiloh n also to have Drew forget all about Shiloh n what he did

Billy Miller should not go. What a vital character he is. Give him a stronger story line!

Definitely a flashback. I can certify for a fact that Helena has NOT escaped Hell again any time in the recent past!

Helena Cassadine:
”Oh, go ahead. Defy my wishes.
Embrace happiness when and where you can because your joy is fleeting. My curse is upon you, Nikolas and Emily. Your joy will bring nothing but pain and sorrow to you and yours for as long as you both shall live.”

Helena has Nikolas,,
He will return.
He has to live his curse!!

Satan

Helena doesn’t have Nikolas, because I have Helena, and Nik ain’t down here. Now I suppose there’s always the chance he made it into Heaven, but given his turn toward genetic Cassadine darkness in the last couple years of his life, it’s not likely he would get a free pass upstairs. So as the psychics have seemed to confirm, Nikolas is running around somewhere on Earth. His grandma isn’t the one who’s after him, but there are always other Cassadines running around who might want to challenge his claim to be the head of the family, as the last legitimate heir of Mikkos & Helena.

Victor Cassadine probably survived the Crichton Clark fireworks show, but don’t expect to see him anytime soon, as he also survived a nearly identical event in Salem, and is now appearing as Tony DiMera over there.

So what other Cassadines could be out there?? Well, there’s always Nik’s daddy Stavros. Didn’t care much for his last go-round on the show, as ReRon wrote him just a little too cartoonish. But if he returns to the menacing evil presence he was back in 2001, that could be entertaining.

You mentioning Crichton Clark reminds me that Robin had found, who we all thought was Jason , brought there by Helena.who actually had Drew Cain’s brain remapped, into thinking he was Jason.Help me here! Didn’t Jake say he saw Jason on the island with Some men, who locked him up in a shed? I am assuming that’s what happened to Drew after he was kidnapped.As she said, she was turning him into a killing machine with Jason’s memories.How did Jason turn up in Russua, as patient #??, with Faison being the brains behind all this, but was Helena in cahoots with him? I am SO confused!

Satan
Satan

They never have bothered to explain all of that. Perhaps this will be done in this upcoming round of Helena flashbacks.

Whatever Jake saw, remember that Drew still had the same face as Jason at the time. He didn’t actually look like Billy Miller until Ava ran over him with a stolen SUV about 5 minutes after Robin brought him to Port Charles. So if the brain mapping took place on Cassadine Island, it’s possible that Jake could have seen Jason, Drew, or both.

Apparently once Helena got the re-programmed Drew, she thought that a trained Navy SEAL, combined with the infused memories of a mob enforcer would be her “ultimate soldier”, so she had no use for the real Jason, who couldn’t be programmed and obviously wouldn’t be taking Helena’s orders. And this is apparently when Faison turned him over to his kid Whiny Heiny who locked him up in Russia and kept him in a drug induced haze & Hannibal Lecter mask for 5 years.

Thanks for your very precise explanation.Separating these three has made me nuts. Reminds me of the old shell game.I am now reading spoilers that Shiloh is mixed up with Helena. God, could it get any worse?

Now Satan seriously–and I say this with the utmost respect for your, ummm, abilities–but how can you certify anything remotely like that with this particular group of writers and PTB? ANYTHING can happen (currently, in the future, retroactively) with this crew. Minds get swapped, twins get swapped (hell–if you’ll pardon the pun–even people’s personalities get swapped if the story dictates); what’s another back-from-the-totally-dead scenario or two?

If I were you I’d keep an eye on that Helena: she’s slippery even in theoretical-death.

Satan

Helena’s escaped from Hell many times. But that’s because the demon guarding the gate was sleeping on the job. Wasn’t really his fault, he had a blood sugar issue that would cause him to nod off after a high carb meal. He sticks to Keto now during working hours, and we have far less security issues.

”They don’t keep people like us in hell, dear, we’d end up running the place.”

I am so excited for this! Welcome back Constance Towers! Helena is super creepy but the actress is amazing. I will miss Billy Miller deeply but hopefully he can come back one day. I want to know about Andrew Cain’s past.

Violet Lemm2

There is a lot to learn about A.C’s past from the time Betsy Frank dumped him at the orphanage.

Linda

agree hopefully we will get all the answers n Drew will finally thru Franco know about his past n then hopefully Franco helps Jason take down Shiloh n Franco finally returns to being Franco n everyone finally sees how much due to Elizabeth n her love he has changed for the best n it would be great if Cam due to his real dad being dead that he asked Franco to adopt him – that would be great love Roger he is a handsome awesome actor

Linda
Linda

I said it before n I will say it again Shiloh was the one who kidnapped Drew to bring to Faison n he may have brought Drew to Helena first that was why Drew/Jason was on the island where her henchmen beat Drew/Jason n that was when Jake saw him with the men n Helena

Kay

Let’s get this straight Constance towers is pure class but she is showing her age let’s move on has she been dead 26 times????

Violet Lemm2

She will probably haunt the hell out Heyden when she goes back alone to Windemere to do some more snooping.

Claudio

Helena will appear as a ghost she is still dead. I read it on tv line website. According to soap central, ABC is in talks to bring back OLTL And AMC, the timing right now is the factor. If they cancel Sara and Michael, this season. This rumour could be a reality. Read it on soap central.

Jimh
Jimh

i heard about it too…

Claudio
Claudio

Yes Jim let’s hope AMC and OLTL come back, I believe in good karma, versus bad karma. If they come back it better be good. Miracles do happen.

Linda
Linda

as for Sara n Michael being canceled haven’t hear anything about it in Sept at 10am another talk show in place of Racheal Ray n Rachael Ray’s new show time is abc at 2pm so unless AMC & OLTL are going to be half hour shows if they are to go on n take Sara n Michaels place n iam sure it will be a whole new cast unless there are a few of the regulars coming back kind of think it wont be the same AMC & OLTL that we all knew n love with a different cast they did that with OLTL with Prospect Park they had a few regulars n a lot of new people n it just didn’t seem the same they had Victor Jr Tea n Todd n it was a little crazy Victor had just come back from being held prisoner by crazy Alice Perkerson n he went to see Tea n then he told her that he had to leave cause the cult was after him n once he left Tea pleaded with Todd to go find him she had just found out she was pregnant with Victor’s baby -it didn’t last long

She’s only in a flashback? Someone want to explain to me how seeing a great actress who plays a deliciously evil character appear only in a flashback can be great news? Constance/Helena should be back to drive alot of story and conjure up more evil things!!! This is just ok news for me.

Did you read that in Dr. ROLFE’S diary?Ha!

Satan

Considering the whole Dr. Rolf “secret medical facility which brought people back from the dead, and then suddenly blew up” storyline was a virtual copy of the Crichton Clark thing (both stories written by ReRon, naturally) I wouldn’t be surprised if Helena & Rolfie had crossed paths somewhere.

Possibly even here in Hell! Both have definitely been here more than once.

Mary
Mary

I don’t suppose Helena could bring back Stavros (Robert Kelker-Kelly) for a visit

Satan
Satan

Contrary to popular belief, Stavros is NOT here in Hell. Yes, he has a habit of falling into supposedly “bottomless” holes (that’s how he’s left the show twice now) but not every such hole is a direct portal to Hell!

As far as I know, Stavros is keeping himself well hidden up there on Earth. He might well have been the person who helped whatsherface escape from WSB custody – all we saw was a man’s hand with a Cassadine ring on it – and since she has since resurfaced long enough to poison Mikey’s girlfriend, you might very well see Stavros show up. And if the psychic was right about Nikolas (also not down here) being “in danger”…. well, he & his daddy never really got along, so that would answer that question as well.

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

NATAS Launches New Streaming Service App As Destination To Watch Daytime Emmys and More

Looks like the place to view the Daytime Emmy ceremonies continue to change, and now evolve with the times, with news on Wednesday from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

While the annual kudofest used to be on major network television, the last several years have found the Emmys not having a broadcast outlet and having to be creative.  As fans of the daytime community know, most recently that show has been able to seen on You Tube, Twitter, and the like, via social media.

Now comes word that NATAS has launched its very own streaming service app to be the epicenter for all of its award shows.  According to Variety: “The service, which doesn’t yet have a name (but will likely include “Emmy” in its title), will be unveiled in time for the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards in April, and the Sports Emmys in May, both of which are administered by NATAS.”

With the introduction of the new OTT app, NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp shared that viewers will know where to go instead of  how it went down in the recent previous years.“We were making it available on PCs and mobile in a clunky way. But with the Emmys OTT app available on any platform, if you want to watch on your phone you can watch on your phone. You want to watch on your TV, you can watch on your TV. And really be accessible to the audience. Wherever they are consuming the shows, we’re on it.”

NATAS is reportedly building out the OTT app  be available on web, mobile, and major settop platforms including Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Fire stick and Android TV.   The new app is said to be free, at least for now, and without commercials.

One more important note is that Sharp says to be on the lookout for more content to enhance the Emmy and award show experiences delivered from NATAS that will include: past awards ceremonies, as well as clips from the NATAS archives,.

In addition to that, looks like there will be some original short form content as well; including its first one “Behind the Emmy” that will combine backstage interviews, onstage acceptance speeches and some of the actual submitted content to really tell the story of the excellent creativity and production work that goes into winning that most coveted honor of excellence in television,” Sharp said.

So, what do you think about the upcoming launch of NATAS’ new app and the place to watch this year’s Daytime Emmys? Comment below.
