In time for the holidays, looks like Emily Wilson will be reprising her role of GH’s Ellie, which means Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) will have some companionship!

General Hospital is on board again this year doing something very special to benefit Toys for Tots. so they will be  throwing an on-screen “Nutcracker Gala”!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Ellie’s singing and dancing skills may be needed for this one, with Bradford Anderson, who we all know can also belt out a tune, to appear in this on-screen event.

So, glad to have Ellie back for a visit on GH? What do you think about the upcoming “Nutcracker gala”? Comment below!

If Emily Q hadn’t really died, Emily Wilson, who seems to resemble EQ, could have been a good recast for her if she was found “miraculously” alive…which isn’t a stretch for GH. She could have straightened Nicholas out. Another cautionary tale about not killing off characters in case you need them later.

She wouldve made a perfect recast as Emily!

Good call Rose. I can defintely see her as an Emily recast…although I don’t think Natalie Livingston…lol…was that her name?…quit. So in actuality, she could reprise her own role. Unless she was fired. Which I don’t remember. Lol. Still…good call!

Wow, you are right, Rose. I had not thought of that possibility.
I love Ellie? Why? Because she is a damn smart girl who does not have to pretend to be stupid in order to nab a man. Moreover, she believes sisterhood is powerful and she doesn’t turn catty and take out her claws when there is female competition in her sphere. Moreover, she is quite lovely to look upon.
I don’t know if young girls use soap opera characters as role models anymore but if they still do, Ellie provides a good one.

I like Emily and her character. I think the event will be enjoyable – and it’s for a good cause.

I agree. I like the Ellie Trout. I’d love if both she and Spinelli returned full time.

Me too! Bradford Anderson Can ACT! Like really act!
And I’ve loved Ellie from day one. They would make the young adult cast rich and full of substance

A Nutcracker Gala? Does that mean we get to see Nathan West at his finest, playing a wooden soldier! [Thats for you my Ceecee!] No, thats great, kind of like a second Nurses Ball type event for the Holidays. Great cause, hats off GH!

Lol, my Timmm, my love. As long as Nathan can generate as much money as he generates heat for all us girls, he can prance around in a burlap sac. I give my all to my charities….lots going on right now….later.

Somehow i knew you would mention Nathan…he would be perfect as a wooden soldier-i just hope there are no wooden soldiers who might feel offended…some are so easily offended by others remarks…lol

She is a good “other half” for Spinelli. She’ll probably add a little fun to the holidays events and then go off into the background again when it’s over.

Kudos to GH for this worthy cause….doing our best here, as we speak. Also give whatever you can to Children Charities ( pediatrics…your local Children’s Hospital). Every penny counts.
I am looking forward to seeing Emily….especially for this heart-giving and noble undertaking. Thank you.

Thank you, Fanny, sweet lady. There is a heartfelt fulfillment helping others, for me. Every altruistic gesture is a great personal reward. Fanny, there are children who have never seen the outside…have never had a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner at home, have never seen the inside of a toy store. Some will never see tomorrow. To see their happy faces when receiving such a small gift as a matchbox car or a Barbie is so bittersweet. These beautiful kids enjoy anyone who will entertain them with a song, or a good storyteller, who can bring characters to life. The stars in… Read more »

@CeeCee.. Hope Helena has a little more to impart on the ‘Tweedlee Twins’…
Watching her put on a ‘show’ for her impromptu guests, should be the highlight
of Friday’s show… Helena will say juuuussst enough so as not to implicate Nick..
She has to clue Jason in on Robin somehow.. So Jason can find her. Robin can
then in turn help him fill in the blanks. Oh! What fun!!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

Hey, CeeCeeGirl! Was Helena not just the most elegant woman on her deathbed ever??? Even the oxygen tube didn’t mar her icy beauty—or white hot mojo— and that sassy silk pajamas ensemble?..Fierce and fabulous!!!! I loved her “dumb and dumber ” quip, too! Me thinks this is going to be one wonderful tour de force by Miss Constance Towers! Finally, something intelligent to sink our teeth into….about time!!!!

CeeCee
Guest

How a propos was Helena pegging Miss Lizzie ‘insipid’ and Mrs. Morgan ‘guttersnipe’, my ShayGirl?
The fear on Liz’s face was palpable. Is there something more to Liz of which we are not aware? Perhaps she had Jason ingest some drug to impede him from remembering who he was. Could she have been working with Helena all along? Too many furtive looks being thrown between them.
Why does Helena do these things? For sport? Ha!

CeeCee

Absolutely, ShayGirl. Helena can surely make even a cannula look like a priceless gem.

CeeCee

@Fanny.
Hey, Fanny.
The only way Helena will clue in Jason as to Robin’s whereabouts would be how sincere this ‘tell-all’ regurgitation of hers is.
I think you’re on to something,Fanny. Jason truly needs to find Robin. I did not put two and two together until you mentioned her. Makes sense. He will save her and himself. Again, Jason the hero?
Later, my friend.

Shay
Guest

@CeeCee!!!!….Helena and I do share a great love of that delightfully descriptive word, “guttersnipe!” LOL. (I also quite like “insipid”, as well!) Oh, that woman is simply an inspiration! When she is featured, it feels like GH has regained its identity! Having said that, I doubt the mighty Helena would lower herself to be in cahoots with Little Ol’ Liz….but she is undoubtedly privy to Nik’s alliance with Nurse Webber on all nefarious things Jason, and as such, Liz is terrified of having her duplicity revealed there to one and all. This is finally getting good! As for WHY Helena… Read more »

I liked Ellie. will they be changing her name to Corinthous ? seems the whole show is about Sonnys lives , wives and brain dead kids. no thanks I will pass. Evil rules on GH.

hi JANET..
Same as Victor Newman, the /newman family.. (and the Abbotts)
Y&R, near the whole soap revolves around the Newmans & Abbotts, all others are disposable..
The Y&R screen are the Newmans the Abbotts in every scene every single day, every episode, without fail.
(GH has much variety of characters and their stories, too– Anna, Jason, Patrick, Nik & Hayden, Franco & Nina, Liz, Tracy, Ava, Julian, Alexis, and others /variety of stories)

I, as others, luv Sonny and the Corinthos family..
I like Ellie, also.. But still want Maxie and Spin together.

I go wack if GH brought on — Port Chuck —
It would be sooo fine to hear/see the guys together again.
Port Chuck in a GH episode playing for whatever occasion!!

hi Fanny.
yes, I know..
But perhaps it could be worked out because he would be in the band not actually in a GH story..The band would be a guest appearance, but doubt it will ever happen..
I do miss Port Chuck 🙁

Maybe “Ronn Moss” could fill in for him since he seems so at home on the Port Charles stage! (I’m sure Spencer could facilitate the details….)

I think they should revisit a return with Ellie and Nathan!

??? what is going on or what isn’t… with Maxie and Nathan…

I too hope that her working with Nina… will , “finally” up the ante on the acting firepower… we know Kirsten Storms to be

she’s been doa for so long… that it may not even matter

I love Ellie… her presence is so interesting… I have always wished… I think JimH brought it up first… that she could woulda shoulda been Tracy long lost daughter!

I’d welcome her back full time

she’s always a return treat!

I love Emily and most especially Brad. I wish they would both come back permanently. Have them move home and be part of Port Charles again. Now that Jason is back, they’ll be plenty for Brad to do and Emily can go back to the hospital, which needs some staff and some storyline.

I love gh

So very happy to hear this news. I have always loved Ellie and Spin as a couple and really enjoyed them at last year’s Nurses Ball. Bradford did such a good job in singing “It might be you” and that lead to them getting back together. Ellie also really cracked me up when she was dancing up a storm around Nathan during the Magic Milo performance. I want them both back in PC for good. Ellie can get her job back at the hospital as lab manager and Spin can work his hacking magic for Sonny/Jason and uncover Paul Hornsby… Read more »

Emily and Bradford are always welcome faces on my TV screen. I, too, wish TPTB would bring them back permanently, but the cast already is quite large. And now they’re bringing on yet another new face (character)! What’s wrong with the older faces, on the characters we’ve loved watching for decades?! Another reason to bring Ellie and Damien back to Port Chuckles is that little Georgie will be able to be with her mom on a regular basis. That’s a win-win situation, if there ever was one. I think the co-head writers are heading in the right direction. I would… Read more »

Would also be a great time for a Dr. Noah Drake Christmas visit—his son and granddaughter need him—or at least a Rick Springfield appearance at the gala. Ditto for Jack Wagner’s “Frisco!” After the debacle of his last storyline, it would be a much-appreciated gesture for a do-over on his character’s hasty—and ultimately unsatisfying—exit! Bring him back!

Emily is SUCH a breath of fresh air every time she returns! And I’m absolutely thrilled anytime a Colorado kid does well…

Toys for Tots is a worthy organization that GH is getting behind, but as long as the Nutcracker Ball doesn’t replace The Nurse’s Ball, I’m good…
