GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Is Named Police Commissioner In Port Charles; But They Say It’s Temporary

Courtesy/ABC

In a cool move, the powers-that-be at ABC’s General Hospital, had Laura (Genie Francis), the now mayor of Port Charles, name none other than former commish, Mac Scorpio (John J, York) as interim police commissioner while Jordan (Brian Nicole Henry) recovers from her kidney transplant and needs some time to recover from her medical ordeal.

Now while the show is making sure in story it is stated that Mac is the temporary person in charge of the PCPD, for many longtime fans of the series, they remember fondly when Mac held down the position for years.

In the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, York said on the surprise story turn: “I was thrilled when Frank Valentini (EP, GH) told me!” He added that he was advised there was great story coming up, and added, “That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to see what is going on.  However long it lasts, I’ll take whatever I can get and I’m really looking forward to being back in there.  There is a whole nee squad. a whole new group of people. I don’t even know who these cops are anymore!”

Shortly after being named commissioner on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Mac is already getting wind of some criminal activities and things that seem way off; from Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) new assignment with The Intruder, to his brother Robert (Tristan Rogers), being pushed out of the WSB and forced to retire, and much more.   Can Mac get the police department to solve some crimes ..> for once?

So, what do you think of John J. York getting to be back in action at the PCPD? Do you hope somehow the story turns and remains in the position even after Jordan is well, or are you hoping Jordan can get back into the swing of things fast and return to her job?

As Felicia said a few weeks ago, “the Scorpio Brothers Ride Again!” Jordan will have some conflict if it comes out in public what Curtis’ role was in the kidney-napping. Perhaps this delays or cancels her return as commissioner. I like the character of Jordan, and BNH has totally claimed the role. However, something needs to be done to spice up her character a bit. As for Mac, and JJY, it’s finally his turn to be a vet of focus. Hopefully the writers saw how JL mesmerized in every scene, once he was treated as a lead, and will give… Read more »

Love Mac. Love Felicia. Miss Frisco. Of course, Mac & Felicia were on to prop up “The Boyfriend.” We needed to see “Bootleg Juilliard” celebrate his birthday? Who cares? Useless character, horrible actor.

I love Mac (and John J. York) and I love seeing him back in action. What concerns me is pushing Jordan aside if he remains in the position. If Briana is leaving it would make sense to me. But other than being the Commissioner, what other storyline have they given her. Of course, what story have they given to John in recent years? It would be wonderful if they could give them BOTH something to do without pushing one or the other off screen.

GH FINALLY gets it! WE want the veterans on our screens and not the Amys, Valentins, Peters, Jordans, Stellas, DOD crap and the new god awful Valerie!

YES, Timmm. Who is in charge of hiring recasts, and Bootlegs from Juilliard? Valerie is awful. Jordan, as boring as can be, and Peter, unwatchable.

Robert was commish when I was a kid. When his character announced he’d been forced into WSB retirement I thought Hmmmm for a second.

Robert (Tristan Rogers) has NOT lost his mojo; he’s always working it. Come back home, Robert, and work with your “little brother,” with Laura the Mayor (remember when you and she went on a date during “classic GH?), Anna (so good with Finola), all ALL the cast. You’re at home there, and your acting skills are primo, of course! GH needs your moxie, good-natured sarcasm, and your well-honed wit. Always has!

Mac needs to get things right in PC. Jordan can be a “Special Advisor” or something. I took a break from GH when Genie was fired, but when Vinessa was playing Jordan, the incompetence was laughable. It’s fine that Sonny/Jason always win, but it was just played so poorly. Mac needs to bring accountability and competence back. Hopefully Frank/Shelley (for now)/Chris can write it properly.

Why temporary? Mac is a natural as the police commissioner. It’s good to see him again–he’s aged beautifully and yet still seems youthful.

I so agree, Harry! And don’t you think Robert should work with Mac, his little brother?

Happy to see Mac back. Sorry to say, but I wouldn’t miss Jordan and Curtis if they exited Pt. Charles.

Yes, Please let him be the PERMANENT commissioner; Jordan can continue to work also but with a reduced load–since she just had a kidney transplant. And PLEASE let Robert work with him; Tristan needs a CONTRACT; after all, he is free from the WSB since they forced his retirement. Come on home, Tristan and “Robert.” Just seeing his face and hearing that distinctive voice is a joy! Love him–and he makes one sit up and listen–he “commmands” attentions. And did I say he is a great and fun actor and character?! I’d love to see Laura interact with him (it… Read more »

Leave Mac as the commissioner. This way, we might get to see more of the vets like him and Felicia, and Lucy, and Robert. Yes, we do need the new generation to carry stories but I think I speak for many of us older folk that we need our vets too. They were the ones we idolized back in the day and even though they don’t get the juicy stories they did when they were younger, just knowing they’re still around gives us comfort because we still love them no matter what.

GH has become staler and more stupid. The Oliver stuff is dull boring filler; nothing but empty. It’s become dumbcrap. Carly and baby is ho-hum and the once fiery Chorinthois family has been reduced to empty can state. Lulu and her dingbat stuff make a brain bleed- as does Maxie’s nonsense. They are true valley girl mall rats, for sure. I wait for them to giggly yell; AWESOME-SAUCE ! !! The cult stuff is Lame .. Scorpio finally got canned and so should Anna.. they are elders, grandparents of a teenager, and to mention- The FBI-CIA-Military-etc do Not take you… Read more »

HEy su, bite that (sharp) tongue! 🙂 Robert Scorpio (what a great name, don’t you agree?) has NOT been canned–he was just on. Anna is great with Robert–and will return after summer vacation. And Scorpio does NOT sing lullabies! (But, I’m sure he COULD–and I’d listen. In fact, I’d listen to him read the menu or the rap sheets or the hospital charts. That man can ACT.). And he’s available to work with his “little” brother, Mac! He’s not getting older; he’s getting better! Come on, su! Join us in welcoming Robert back to GH PERMANENTLY! Will you?

Love it! I remember when he lost his job and Anna took over. After 21 years at GH he was taken off contract. It’s nice that he has this opportunity! It’s almost like traveling back in time.

Sorry to disagree with you, Violet, but I just wrote a post stating that Mac’s facial fuzz doesn’t work for me….even though it is neatly kept, it conceals his ageless face too much for my druthers! Why mess with perfection????

Yea for the return of Mac. And hopefully Robert as his unofficial sidekick. But I do hope they can find something for Jordan. I like her and Curtis on GH. Maybe they can be a investigative team like Sam and Jason?

As Celia said, she looks a little old for him, more like a sister. 4 Everything you said about Lulu, but I wish Sonny had told her to get a blow-up doll! 5 I had hoped maybe Drew and Kim might get together, but now it looks like he may be leaving GH. 6 Love Jax and his contempt of Ava.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
