He should be back as Lucky

I stopped watching GH several years ago; but, I saw Greg as the adult Lucky. He did a terrific job with the character. He was Lucky the man with man sized problems. I really enjoyed him.

From a story and character perspective, this makes sense, because Eric used to be a kindhearted person, and was railroaded by the previous writing regime. After being sent to prison, one could only imagine the state he will be in. But I don’t think DAYS needs more dark and depressing stories, after the first half of 2016 was filled to the brim with that kind of dread and despair. Hopefully there is light at the end of Eric’s tunnel.

That’s what I thought!!!!! Ha Ha

I don’t want Greg as Eric to return. I never liked him before. We don’t need darker. I don’t see the point in Eric returning.

Neither do I – I didn’t care for his character nor his boring interpretation, no one has any HUMOR on this show (with the exception of Jon Aniston as Victor) – it’s really true they do not understand or comprehend how to intermingle some humor into these lackluster scripts.

We don’t need a dark Eric!!!! Why do today’s soap writers insist on making everything dark where there once was such light?? We need a hero to come in and help Nicole raise her baby!! Leave the darkness to Deimos and Andre.

Dark Eric I would definitely love to see! I bet he’s hot playing a bad boy like his brother Brady was.

I hate the hair cut and the beard– but I guess they have to show his “darker” side– no doubt he has a tattoo— personally I miss Fr. Eric– whose idea of being “dark” was to drink milk straight from the carton– sigh

Yeah I loved the show, when he was Father Eric. I too hope there is some light for him, he deserves some happiness.

He’ll be a “darker” Eric for a while, to give the impression that Prison “changed” him – but after a short while he will probably revert back to the same old boring Eric. I’m sorry that I found his character uninteresting but this show needs some humor interjected once in a while and it is totally lacking in any whatsoever. If anyone remembers shows like “all my children” with Michael Knight as Tad Martin, the character had a sarcastic wit – this show has NOTHING like that – each character is either 100% Saint or 100% Evil incarnate – it’s ridiculous, the writing is terrible, show is very poorly balanced.
