GENERAL HOSPITAL: Cameron Gets a Gravesite Visit From Zander; A Very Preggers Brook Lynn Returns

Photo: ABC

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital revealed the return of Chad Brannon as Cameron Webber’s deceased father, Zander Smith, as well as the return of Amanda Setton in the role of Brook Lynn.

In story, an emotional Cameron (William Lipton) is overcome by all the loss in his life as he visits the gravesite of his biological father, Zander Smith, on the heels of losing his stepfather, Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth).  As Cameron looks at his father’s grave he goes on to say that he finally had a complete family unit for it to be taken away like everything else and everyone else he has cared about in his life including his friends, Dev and Oscar.

Cameron begins to lament what would life would be like for him, if Zander would have stuck around, instead of getting himself shot at such a young age.

 

Then, Zander appears to Cameron stating, “I get it, it’s all my fault.”  Cameron goes on to tear into Zander about the way his life ended, while Zander thinks he can still teach his son a thing or two, but Cam says he had the chance to be his dad and really blew it.  No matter what, Zander explains, “I will always be your dad.”  Zander understands that Cameron is angry and feeling all hope is lost, but tries to rally his son to not give in to that way of thinking, because he has so much potential.

Zander truly does not want to see his son give in to the same impulses that he did when he was young and that he wants Cameron to make the right decisions while at this crossroads in his young life.  As Joss (Eden McCoy) and Trina  (Sydney Mikala) show up at the cemetery, the ghost of Zander disappears.  Joss wants Cameron to stop the pity party as they all have been there, and all have lost people they love, but shares that they will get through it together. Cameron looks back and sees his father as he says he is loser just like his dad.  But, Trina and Joss tell Cam they don’t hang out with losers as Zander looks on.

Elsewhere, Brook Lynn, who is hiding outside the Q mansion, comes inside once alone with Michael (Chad Duell) and reveals she is pregnant.  Michael figures out the baby daddy is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), but Brook Lynn is not sure if she will even tell Valentin.  Michael warns her that she will be playing with fire with Valentin if she is not truthful.

Finally, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) has realized she is in a bad, bad way with all the creepy vibes she is now getting from Peter (Wes Ramsey).  She knows she has to protect her unborn child any way she can.

So, what did you think of the scenes between William Lipton and Chad Brannon? Are you happy to see Amanda Setton back as Brook Lynn? How will Maxie get away once and for all from Peter?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Excited for Brook Lynn to come back. Hope Amanda does well, but she’s only there because Frank wanted to give his old friend from OLTL a job instead of contacting Adrianne Leon in 2019 when she was talking about coming back.

You don’t know that. And, in no offense to Adrianne León, she never lasts long in the role. I do feel as if recasting was a solid way to ensure a potential long-term return of Brook Lynn. Admittedly, however, I slightly preferred Brianna Lane in the role, so it’ll be an adjust to seeing Amanda Setton again.

Fair points. I have seen lots of evidence that Adrianne wanted to come back and was never contacted. Two of the three times she left a soap role, it wasn’t her choice. Briana was awesome as well and hopefully Amanda can do well.

Cameron (William Lipton) is an excellent actor–
He needs to pull out of GH and fly!
He can be among all the great actors if he doesn’t
fade away stereotyped in a soap opera..
And happy that Valentin will be upfront in a story, hopefully.
GH is really going onward with great stories.
Looking forward to upcoming episodes.
And–
Y&R is bad, really bad, it stinks of bad..
GH puts Y&R to shame–

I guess. Cameron seems a bit overwrought and cheesy to me.

Sorry SuOOO, but I think Days takes the prize on bad. If you don’t watch it, you aren’t missing a show that used to be really good. Very sad.I agree about Y&R. I wish I could just pull the plug on that one, but sadly haven’t got the strength.

I think Cameron “seeing” his dad was just the excuse he will use when and if he starts acting out to say like father like son. With Franco gone from his life, I expect to see a big change in Cam, and it won’t be a good one. Hope I am wrong.

The highlight of Wednesday’s memorial show was seeing Luke Spencer’s grandson (Aiden) call Scott Baldwin grandpa.

Well played by all. Kevin, Terry and Epiphany should’ve been at the memorial, but otherwise nicely done.

Actually that made me want to vomit harder than my demon employee made Linda Blair do in “The Exorcist”.

Laura sitting right next to the kid on the couch, as he calls that serial killer Frodd his “dad”??

I think it’s great that Laura & Scotty are friends, given all the history, but the total erasing of Lucky from that family is 666% dragonshit. He’s the one who should have been talking to Cameron, not the ghost of his bio-dad who was in Hell before Cam was even born.

Why should Lucky be talking to Cam, whether dead or alive? They aren’t related. I did not see Zandor, so no nothing about him, but if you say he’s in hell, must have been a bad, bad person.
I hope Iam wrong but I think they are paving the way for Cam to start acting like his dad did. I also read somewhere that he’s leaving GH, which I’d rather have than him stop being the good, loving kid we know.

Zander wasn’t a bad guy but, Jason, Sonny and Skippy (Courtney )are. Skippy killed someone and Jason framed Zander for her crime in order to save Sonny’s little sister. Zander had no money, no legal
representation or parents to defend him, so when the police zeroed in on him, he felt helpless and committed suicide by cop. I liked Zander.

Lucky was the only father Cameron ever knew from birth up until the time he was SORASed to be a member of the Frodd Fan Club.

When Aiden was born, Lucky told Cam, that while Aiden was his biological son, he would always consider Cameron to be his “first born”.

The Valentini regime has trashed Lucky’s character to prop their pet serial killer. Who is now dead, thank all that’s unholy. Time for Cam to get a visit from his real father (DNA not withstanding)

Lucky was trashed long before Frank Valentini came along.

That’s true. Garin Wolf, who was the short term head writer between Guza & the OLTL regime was the one who had a sick mission to destroy the entire Spencer family. Wolf is the one who made Lucky a crybaby who literally abandoned his family on Xmas Eve. Valentini & his former sidekick ReRon only made that worse by bringing back Lucky as part of that ridiculous exit story they wrote for Luke. The only good thing that came out of that story, is that Lucky was the one who found his son Jake and was able to bring him… Read more »

I thought it very appropriate seeing as how the kid had a no-show father and grandfather.
He was lucky, no pun intended, to have Franco and Scott, who lovingly played those parts.

Chad Brannon has aged beautifully! He’s a solid actor and when I heard he was coming back, I was hoping he was playing Zander’s long lost brother. Remember, that horrible Courtney killed her sleazy strip club boss and Jason framed Zander in order to protect Skippy. Courtney willfully went along with it. This is what led Zander to commit suicide by cop. Another reminder of why I always hated that twit Courtney (Skippy) and why I continue to hate Jason and yes, Sonny. And now Jason is now being blamed for Franco’s murder?
Good.

Welcome Back! Welcome Back! Welcome Back Zander!! Like Father Like Son! Great Job Zander and Cam.

Nice to see Zander. He was good with Cam. Wish they had more for the actor to do to stay. Speaking of, good to see Brooke back. The girl who subbed for her did a really good job. I was hoping they could bring her back as a different character?

I do concur, Timmm. I also thought replacement Briana Lane had a nice friendship vibe with Chase. Wouldn’t mind seeing her again.

Brook Lynn seems to be putting it all out there(pun intended) to anyone who’ll listen to her pregnancy news. Also, are we sure it isn’t Julian that’s the dad?

Harry

I don’t know,Violet. But why did the prop department put an exercise bouncy- ball in Brook Lynn’s shirt? I fully expect her to give birth to a hundred pound baby.

Harry, thanks, I can always count on you for a big “belly laugh” and yes, I expect her to go into labor on the spot.

Yeah, I’m guessing they’re going to write in a “twins” storyline here. She’s way too big for that to be one kid.

How long before the brain mapping mad scientists kidnap the babies so they can see how well their procedures work on a fresh new set of identical baby brains?

I hope one of the babies will be disposable if that obnoxious brat Charlotte has any say about it. That selfish kid keeps getting worse every time we see her. First she had to share Lulu with Rocco, now God forbid, Papa will give some attention to someone other than herself.

After today, I don’t think there are ANY babies. Not the way she was being so evasive when Maxie & Britch were asking her who her OB was. What visibly pregnant woman would NOT want a doctor for her baby? Probably one who’s hiding some sort of a pillow or beach ball under her shirt, which wouldn’t give a very good ultrasound reading!

So Charlotte will probably be happy in the long run…. that is unless Brooklynn ends up stealing Maxie’s baby. Which is the type of thing that usually happens on this show (and has already happened to Maxie before.)

Amen, Violet. I’ve never liked that character. She’s been trouble from day one. My quandary over her custody would be who gets stuck with her!

Soaphound, probably a new Lulu by then or Nina, if her bad luck holds out, ha.

Now they have poor Cameron writing love songs to dead serial killers… while failing to acknowledge the fact that any musical talent he has, probably came from the only TRUE father he ever knew. And his name was not Frodd. Or Zander.

For the love of all that’s unholy, it’s time to bring back Lucky Spencer to rescue his family from the remains of Frodd Madness. If that means they have to fire every post 2012 newbie to pay Jonathan Jackson’s salary, so be it.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
