Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Knots Landing favorite, Donna Mills (Ex-Abby) is on her way back to Port Charles.

Donna will reappear on General Hospital this month as Madeline Reeves, the murderess sister of Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), and mother to Nina (Michelle Stafford), and the woman who was the legal mother to the late Nathan West (Ryan Paevey).

According to EW. Mills will appear briefly. Donna last appeared on GH in September of 2015, when GH fans saw that Madeline was sent to prison for the murder of Silas Clay (Michael Easton).  Donna first appeared in the role back in March of 2014.

So, how do you think Madeline will pop back up on the canvas, especially given the latest developments of Obrecht and Nina? Share your theories in the comment section below,.

I have always thought that Nina’s child is alive, hidden away by Madeline.

Oh, mike….you have no idea how I second that! ….Or, maybe you do…..I still maintain Kiki is Nina’s child. …..I never stopped saying it!!!!….inserting it here and there.
However, your point ( that MadMaddie has him/her) would make as good a story line as Kiki’/.

I always thought Nelle looked more like Nina’s daughter…maybe it is Kiki and their will be a custody battle for her-why not-lol

Celia
Guest

Oh, Jimmy, my friend….we could belabor this until two Sundays come together. Just as agreeing with Lynn, earlier today…..the baby looking like a Corinthos? That is impossible, but looking like Morgan who is a Corinthos makes sense in the soap world. Do the PTB think anything out? So I put their thinking cap on and thought….ok, it can be. As far as a custody battle…hmmm…Kiki is too old: she’s her own custodian. I still believe she is Nina’s. If I say it long enough; they will listen. LOL….look at them; tall and reedy…..Silas not tall enough; unless one of the… Read more »

Well,her character is still in prison, so perhaps Nina goes to visit her mom. Or,Obrecht is caught&sent to the same prison as Donna Mills’character is in.Remember,they are sisters.

Or she is questioned about her whereabouts, or where she might go.Don’t forget Madeline still has family there, her niece Britt, who would know more about dear old mutter.

Good to have Donna Mills back.. I desperately need something new and different. GH has be singing one note, a monotone note, same ol’ same ol’.. GH needs to SPEED UP.. 6 months-year long stories are overkill of boring. The writers are not qualified to write intruding Shorter stories, they don’t have the talent nor the imagination to create stories of shorter length because that would mean instead of boring us with One looooong store they would have need to write perhaps 4 shorter stories and they are not capable to do so. Hope Donna Mills brings something NEW ,… Read more »

You know su000, I’ve loved Donna Mills since LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING, the 60s/70s soap she starred in with Leslie Charleson. And, of course, PLAY MISTY FOR ME and her fantastic Abby Ewing on KNOTS LANDING. Madeline may be wicked but Donna makes her a guilty pleasure. I’m looking forward to her return.

Uuuuu….Soaphound….I love that…”guilty pleasure”. Must use that line. I thought it was only used for Swiss chocolate???? HaHa and LOL.

She will be in the same prison with her own sister Dr. Lisel…still wish she would turn out to have a fraternal twin and its Monica…Monica would be related to them both..this would also be a nod to when they played sisters on LIAMST…

That would be too much fun, Jimh! I do so hope “Mutter” and “Magda” meet up behind bars…toss The Britch in the mix and you will have a Westbourne Family reunion truly worthy of the word! (Though no Nina, please…enough of her already!)

Celia
Guest

Hi, Shaybelle,
Has Liesl been apprehended? I must have missed that episode.
Imagine them all together in prison.
But, without Nina, the ‘Coven’ would not be complete. I love these ‘witches’…LOL.
I LOVE my Nina as much as I love Drew…..and a few more worthy choices….

Shay
Guest

To the best of my knowledge, Liesl is still “at-large,” CeeCee, but in my fondest wish that she somehow remains on the GH canvas, I am concocting any necessary scenario in order to achieve that end. Given that DM’s “Magda” is making a return appearance, it would seem such a waste were the “Swiss Sisses” not to be reunited for another catty round of “happy family,” albeit temporarily so…Perhaps Obrecht will spring Maddie from prison, along with Britt??? ‘Twould be great fun to see them all together again “on the lam” from the law!!! P.S. Nina not required…sorry, mia amica,… Read more »

Imagine if Liesl comes back in a Laura mask…..nah; ‘they’ wouldn’t dare, would they?

Shay
Guest
Shay

@CeeCee…I think Liesl has been permanently put off faux facades since her “Anna antics”….Faison saw to that with his kinky request for her “wear the mask” during their much-anticipated, yet ultimately-unfilled, whoopie session at Windemere….Lol! P.S. Replied to your lovely comments at the “Laura thread” and it actually posted!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Ahh, I see, Shay…..she finds fakeness distasteful? LOL…I guess she’s authentic despite her ‘antics’.
It makes no difference to me, or you, for that matter…mais oui? We love her anywhichway.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Yes, CeeCeeGirl…we do love our Liesl! In our eyes, she can do no wrong…especially when she is wrongdoing! After all, that is her forte’…

Celia
Guest
Celia

I will never understand how the comings and goings work, Shaybelle…..
Who or what determines the ‘fate’ of characters?……with the exception of those actors/actresses who want to terminate their tenure, of course.
Kathleen’s personification of Liesl is and has everything…..a personality that made me both laugh and cry. Why allow her to slip through their fingers?
If this show is as moribund as many have said; shouldn’t TPTB try their best to feed it in order to sustain it?

Shay
Guest

In the current state of GH, I would say a great deal comes down to money, CeeCee. When one considers how much it takes to keep the “favored few,” fat and happy, not to mention the continual funding of Frank’s penchant for an endless parade of newbies and “intersoapers,” there is little left to offer a contract to someone as supremely talented and beloved as Kathleen Gati…and her magnificently monstrous creation of Liesl Obrecht! More’s the pity! This amazing actress takes whatever too-occasional scraps are provided to her flamboyant femme of a character and spins them into gold! Whether in… Read more »

Again, you have slain me….your post is unreal, Shay. Perfect writing …succint, yet tells a story.
I guess I hadn’t thought of ‘budget’….of course, money, or lack thereof, impinges upon whom stays and whom goes…..but, I can thing of a couple or threevwith whom I could part without sorrow…..and it wouldn’t be sweet. HaHa….❤️

Shay
Guest
Shay

You and me both, CeeCeeGirl! We all have our favorites and bete noirs amongst the denizens of Port Charles…and I suspect most of ours wouldn’t necessarily comport in relation to the current GH cast, but I do celebrate the fact that we, along with many others, agree upon and applaud Kathleen Gati’s exceptional efforts as Liesl…she is a shining example of creating a full-fledged soap character from an initial showstring showing as a fleeting one-off….this used to be how iconic daytimers initially made their mark and entered the eventual pantheon of legends…I hope that Dr. O. is well on her… Read more »

it would be fun if they have a prison story with the sisters together if written right and a touch of comedy!!!

A campy “Women in Chains”-style storyline ala Ron C could be great fun!

Hi, Jimmy,
Yeah, but only if they find Liesl.
I wish I knew more about what you and Soaphound are talking about…..Must be a really fantastic feeling to have been part of that era.
I envy you guys!!

It leaves me with fond memories of the greatest soap opera era…i am also watching vintage episodes of The Doctors serial which i watched when it originally aired…if only all soaps survived the wiping process and being shown-you could had seen how great the soaps once were…but having come from that era always makes me an old-which i am…lol

Hopefully we will see about 5 seconds of her as her sister’s cellmate and then be rid of both of them forever. One of Re-Ron’s useless creations.

Oh come on now, Satan. Liesl suffered terribly from overuse and overexposure during the Carlivati era, especially at the very end, and some of the story nonsense that was contrived in order to keep her front and center was utterly preposterous (I’m thinking especially of the way she ended up as the head of the hospital), but she was hardly “useless” given her connections to others formerly on the canvas. With less screen time, she’d have been fine; Kathleen Gati has always been fun to watch, even if I sometimes wished she was on my screen less. Madeline, I’d agree,… Read more »

Hi, T,
It’s not that I don’t like Kim..”.Actually, I do.
I simply do not trust her. Don’t ask me why, LOL….I do not even know….a visceral feeling.
There’s more to her past with Drew in which she is not divulging. For good reason or not? Who knows!!

I got ya babe! Now, it seems like Liz Hendrickson’s character has a past with Drew. TRIANGLE!

Yes, T….I got that same vibe….
I think there is a story there between Drew and Margaux.
I hope so…..nothing dark, though. I’m done with the GH macabre.

Kathleen Gati is the best casting find during Frank’s run. She’s embodied Liesl with equal parts evil and fun. Who else could call Elizabeth “mousy Nurse Webber”, Anna “that twit” and Felicia “the Aztec”?

I can’t believe they are letting that murderous old bat out, after killing Silas and helping Rick swindle money from her own daughter. I loved Donna on Knott’s Landing, etc.but I can not stand her character on GH.
