Not a fan of either the NB or the character of Lucy. I guess I’ll be ff’ng a lot during those episodes.

Miss having Lucy as a recurring character. With Kevin potentially getting involved with Laura it would be fun to see a jealous Lucy responding to their budding relationship.

Mine too! So refreshing to see grownups and hear substantive dialogue. And Genie looked so great in her tailored suit! Suave Jon! An inspired pairing. Timing impeccable.

I would love to have Lucy Coe be a staple in Port Charles. She is a fantastic actress and always a joy to watch.

I love Lucy!! Cannot wait to see her back in Port Charles. Lucy is one of my favorite characters. I would like something to become of that spa her and Laura had started. Looking forward to the Nurses Ball.

I also love Lucy too! I hope the rumors are true that LH will be staying on as Lucy for awhile after the NB ends. Hopefully, now that GF is on contract, we will finally get to see the spa that Lucy and Laura were planning long ago!

Lynn Herring should return to GH full time. She is missed and a lifer. It is upsetting the way the character was treated and Ms. Herring.

Nice dress. Was so happy to see LH back as LC today. That short scene with Laura and “Doc” spoke more than a five minute scene could have because of the pros who were in it. Love them all. So, yeah, it would be great to have Lucy back in PC more often. I remember back around the 50th anniversary, Lucy and Laura were going to start a business together and were recruiting people like Felix. Why couldn’t they pick up on that? Lord only knows, Laura’s story line is moving at a snail’s pace. I think only Lucas’ and… Read more »

Lucas and Brad got a story…what story…i just said more than they even get too!!

I agree, Jimh. It’s terribly irritating.

And someone just wrote that they’re killing Lucas off. I hope that’s untrue. If so, I have to wonder if the writers are looking for the same out-crying from the GH fans as they had over at DOOL when they killed off Will. What the heck is wrong with these soap writers? Can they think of nothing else to do than kill off the gays? Ugh!

Amen to your comment that “that short scene with Laura and ‘Doc’ spoke more than a five minute scen could have because of the pros….” And Genie’s dialogue was TRUE to the storyline and characters of Luke and Laura at the time. And Genie was glowing through it all. Kudos to both actors! And guess everyone has heard the spoiler by now that Tony Geary is returning because Lucas will become a victim of the violence between Sonny’s and Julian’s factions. And, supposedly, TG (“Luke”) will return to help his sister “Barbara Jean” through the grief of losing her son.… Read more »

Nancy…Time has passed, there has been some time to heal from Fluke and retirement, plus any “slights” Tony may have had towards Genie. So I’ll him another chance, because if he’s a good boy his dropping in could be like the good old days.

I really love Lucy’s dress! Lucy taught me how to get ready to go out in less than 20 minutes when she would go from mousy librarian to glamour girl.

I can’t wait to see what happens!

Yes we need Lucy to have a storyline an a contract…

Loved seeing Lynn/Lucy back…except that I have to use the words “back again.” Wish she was more permanent. PC can use a bit if her zaniness, along with her kind of smarts. It can be such a dull, dark town. Like others, liked the possibility for more of a Doc, Laura and Lucy triangle.

I read that she said she is willing to come back IF they give her a storyline–not just for “drop-ins.”

Rose, I’m with you on your post re giving TG another chance. It was painful to hear the words “Lucy and Lloyd Johnson”–brought up such wonderful memories justaposed with the TG “slights’ of Genie. I felt for her–and for us, the viewers. But maybe “time does heal all wounds”–would be lovely to see TG more gracious and giving in a scene with Genie at Beecher’s Corner–or at Lucas’s funeral–if they kill off Lucas as gossip says they are planning to do. I’m with you on hoping for the best–always.

She looks like she could be Nina’s mom, and Kiki’s grandmother. Imo.

I love Lucy, grew up watching her an her antics. She is a huge part of GH history. Unfortunately, I almost dread seeing the vets come back. As GH is now, if you’re not a Corinthos or involved in the Mob business, you’re just filler. Case in point, the Laura/Kevin/Lucy scene yesterday. It was too short. It almost feels like Frank V. just brings these people back to shut us longtime viewers up.

Lucy being back is the best thing to happen to GH in a long time. Fave character ever. Nina is a 2nd place Lucy wannabe.

I’ve been a fan of Lynn Herring’s since the first time she appeared on my TV screen as Lucy, at that time a mousy librarian. Her transformation into the sexy slinky woman she’s been ever since was spell-binding, and she did it in one scene! Lynn has been underused by GH for so long, and it’s a shame she’s only asked back for the not-even-annual Nurses Balls. I hope the writers have found a way of keeping Lynn/Lucy on our screens for the foreseeable future, and give her a new best girlfriend to pal around and get into some trouble… Read more »

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
