When On-Air On-Soaps spoke with now Daytime Emmy winner, Ray Wise (Ex-Ian Ward, Y&R) on the red carpet at the 42nd Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards about if he would be reprising his role as Leland Palmer/Killer BOB on the iconic series reboot of Twin Peaks, Ray said it he could not confirm or deny at the time, but it was more than 50/50, and it that he hoped that David Lynch and Showtime’s disagreement would be worked out, so production could continue to move forward! Well, it has!

Fantastic news this afternoon from Twin Peaks creator David Lynch is that the bizarre soapy drama that first aired on ABC more than 25 years ago is coming back, and that Lynch is back on board the project too! Lynch announced via Twitter stating: “Dear Twitter Friends, the rumors are not what they seem ….. It is !!! Happening again. #TwinPeaks returns on @SHO_Network

That was followed up by statement from Showtime’s David Nevins: “This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark (Frost) and David tastes more delicious than ever. Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Pre production starts now!!” From the reports today, it looks like there will be more than the original 9 episodes being filed in the limited series revival!

Next series star, Kyle MacLachlan got in on the news tweeting a pic of some of the more familiar characters of Twin Peaks surrounding him in his role as Agent Dale Cooper in a nod to Wizard Of Oz,  “But it wasn’t a dream. It was a place. And you and you and you…and you were there… Good to be home.

Could this mean that just killed-off General Hospital star Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke Lavery) can return to the revival of Peaks as Dick Tremayne?  We hope so!

Watch the interview with Ray Wise below where we touch upon the Twin Peaks reboot! Then let us know if you are excited to know that Log Lady and all the rest of the clan will soon be back on TV!

He was wasted on Y&R a great actor a stupid storyline. The best guest appearance should have been Shemar Moore/Malcom’s return only two days but a character we all loved and he had some great scenes with KSJ!

LOVED seeing Ray at the Creative Emmys and chatting with him and his wife!! (To me, I vaguely remember his stint as Jamie Rawlins (1970-76) on LOVE OF LIFE!) His win was MOST-deserved as the evil Ian Ward on #YR!!

Expect to see Ray Wise in many genres because he’s been there. I met him at a sci-fi convention last fall where he was most gracious. This was during the time he was being his most wicked as Ian Ward on Y&R, followed more recently with appearances on Mad Men. Coincidentally Nathan Fillion/Castle/Joey on OLTL was also at the show. Going to check out Twin Peaks to get reacquainted with the story.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.
