Denise Alexander Returns to General Hospital

Look who’s coming back to Port Charles! Now that Laura (Genie Francis) is delving into her past after realizing she has two half-brothers (Cyrus and Martin) she never knew she had, look for her mother and longtime GH favorite, Denise Alexander to return to her signature role as Lesley Webber.

Denise last reprised her role of Lesley back in 2019 and had visited a few other times in 2017 and 2013.  Laura’s mom  was first on the daytime scene back in 1973 and Alexander played the role till 1984.  She was recurring from 1996-2009.

Will Lesley have ammo on Gordon Gray to help Laura bring down Cyrus?  Soap Opera Digest reported the nwws.

No word yet on Alexander’s first airdate, but stay tuned.

Excited that now Lesley will be back on GH and part of the story with Laura? Comment below.

Best casting news to start the new year!

While in town, Lesley needs to give a smack down to Nikolas for faking his death (they were always close). She also must have some witty repartee with Monica. Hopefully they give her some lines to indicate she’s been in frequent contact with Lucky since both are supposed to be in Europe.

Will they further dive into the David Hamilton murder, or is that subplot being dropped?

At 81, Denise deserves kudos for braving the Covid protocols to return right now.

Well of course she’s back. It would be impossible to tell this “ancient history” back story of Gordon Gray being Laura’s father without Lesley’s input. I don’t expect Cyrus the Virus to treat her very well, obviously. Probably will blame her for whatever his daddy did.

I’m SO glad! I’d stopped watching years ago but I was a devout GH fan as a kid and into the 90’s when Laura and Luke returned. I don’t know who these men are but it’s good to see Michael E. Knight. It’s difficult to understand where the characters I like are, but for Denise I’ll definitely tune back in!

This excites me. I hope they do it justice. Denise Alexander as Lesley has always been my favorite character on GH.

Great to see Dr. Lesley Webber returning to GH! Hope she makes it over to the Quartermaines for a run-in (or two) with Monica Q!

Ok everyone, I haven’t watched it in years, but have decided to join in again as I’m retired and have the time, but I haven’t been able to find it. I do not have cable. What station is it on?

Will look forward to her return. I’m going to guess that she’ll be in peril from Cyrus since he blames Laura for his own mother’s kidnapping.

It would be wonderful for Leslie, Monica and Audrey to have some scenes together!

Denise Alexander may have gained some years, now at 81 but she sure hasn’t lost any of her acting abilities. She’s still as sharp as ever. I don’t remember her having such a good sense of humour but she was incredible with Cyrus. That tiny woman going toe to toe with this big man was a treat for sure with Laura looking on so afraid for her mom.

She is as beautiful as ever, noticed her speech is giving her some issues. Is her disease progressing?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
