Tomorrow is a big day for General Hospital! As it nears its 50th Anniversary in April, the show is bringing in the big guns! And perhaps none bigger than soap icon, Genie Francis who returns as Laura on Monday’s episode.

And it looks like it will be old times when the following week on February 19th, fan favorite Kin Shriner returns as Scotty Baldwin.  Just what will happen when long time nemesis’ Luke (Anthony Geary) and Scotty meet up again? What will Laura do?  What has happened to Laura while she was away in Europe?

While we will have to wait for all the answers to unfold over the next few months on General Hospital, EW.com has released some exclusive photos of Genie and Kin’s return and one of GH’s 50th Anniversary logo! 

After you check out the images, let us know what you think is the back-story to explain where Laura has been? What mystery does she bring with her?  Do you think she might have re-married Scotty while she was away from Port Charles? Let us know your thoughts!

Love the logo! Very classy. Can’t wait to see Genie back in PC along with Luke and Scotty and what story has been written for them.
I hope ABC fills the airways with 50th anniversary promos. I’m watching the Valentines’ Day GH marathon on Soapnet right now and they are starting.
We need to build up GH all we can. I could only hope that someday they will take the No. 1 spot from Y & R.

Although I am a life-long Luke and Laura fan and think it is a travesty that Genie has not been used all these years (JFP)… I hope Laura an Scotty ARE married… oh the storyline, humor, drama…you name it… potential! I cannot wait…

I agree – I am looking forward to a Laura / Scotty pairing and the fallout instead of a Laura / Luke pairing. Genie needs a meaty storyline and with Scotty she could get that!

Laura and Luke were good the first couple of years and there after I could take them or leave them, ehh ..
Their wedding made them more recognized then the couple themselves imo..

When it comes to love triangles and their problems or Caleb; I want Caleb 🙂 !!!

I see GH is going back into the 12980’s. Remember Scotty Baldwin got on the same jet as Laura did when she left for Europe. I hope she and Scotty are married, that way, Luke and Tracy can get back together.

Monday is FINALLY here. What a great day for all the “newer” members of “the club.” And FINALLY having a fantastic story teller writing this chapter of the LnL story, I for one am beyond excited. TG and GF are so fantastic, they have the ability to tell the story without saying a word…….their looks are great. My only concern is making the reason for Laura staying away from Nicholas, Lucky and Lulu believable. But I have faith in FV and RC. And to all the fans of Luke and Tracy…….you are about to understand why us LnL club members have stayed strong all these years. Is it 2PM yet?

Luke remarried while Laura was away, Laura should too.But married to Scotty or not, its thrilling just to see them back on the show. It just wasnt the same without them. Im curious to know whatever happened to the original Laura played be Stacey Baldwin? I think thats her name. and i know Scotty was originally played by Johnny Whitaker plus a few others before Kin. But Genie and Kin will always be Laura and Scotty to me.

I can’t wait!!! Looks great! I think she has married Scotty… but I want her back with Luke in the end! Nice to see she is going to see her grandson! Hope to see Lucky and Nicholas back soon! I am sure we will be seeing much more of Helena as she is never done with Laura!

When you “Think Of Laura”, laugh, dont cry, i know she’d want it that way.

Laura deserves so much better than either one. But if she HAS to choose between the two, then it should be Scotty. Luke has become such a complete ego- bloated scuzzball, with all the charm of a guy coming off a three week drunk that all he deserves is a shower, a scrubdown, and a hot meal at the local men’s shelter.
PEEE YEWWW.

Laura and Scotty are Married and either have a child or have adopted a child.

Scott

Will Bobbie be coming back for the 50th??….she is Carly’s mom and Luke’s sister and was a big part of the 80s storylines….and Bobbie’s gay son, Lucas (i think was his name)….maybe John Stamos can make a cameo return and get Blackie out of prison…he sure has been there a loooonnnngggg time for daytime…LOL

I never got over Scotty losing Laura. Lucky and Lulu made Luke and Laura bearable for me but I hope Luke and Laura do not get back together.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
