GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nathan Parsons Returns As Luke Saves Ethan!

On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Nathan Parsons made his on-screen return as Luke (Tony Geary) and Holly’s (Emma Samms) son, Ethan Lovett.

Parsons, who has been making a name for himself in primetime since exiting GH, re-entered the canvas in high stakes moment when Luke found Ethan with his leg chained to a device, exhausted and ready to pass out.   If Ethan moved ever so slightly his foot would set off what would seem to be a bomb.

In a touching moment, Ethan told Luke he was happy to see him, and the two bonded as the two always do in their own unique way.  After Luke saved Ethan by freeing him and pushing him out of the way of the device his foot was locked on there turned out to be no explosion.  Enter Lulu (Emme Rylan), Dillon (Robert Palmer Watkins), Laura (Genie Francis) and Holly all held captive, and at the end of the episode, whoever is behind this caper seemed to be revealed.   As for Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) going into Friday’s episode, Ethan explained he got away, but was not sure where Lucky was or if he was captured.

What did you think of the scenes between Luke and Ethan? Happy to see Nathan Parsons back on GH for this short arc? Comment below!

Loved their scene. Wish NP was back at GH full time, however, glad he’s doing so well in other areas.

They were some sweet scenes I’m newer to GH and don’t find Luke all that great personally, however I enjoyed him and Ethan. They are both obviously good actors and deserve their props for yesterday’s episode.

Luke and Tracy will happen, but wow, you really haven’t watched long if you ‘ve never seen or heard of Ethan. You really don’t know Luke at all.

Love the reunion scenes between Ethan and Luke!!! Nathan Parsons is a great actor and gives off such natural charm, energy, and charisma; wish he could stay on GH longer! And he’s so hot and sexy !!

Heather…you wrote exactly my sentiments. I’ll add that I love the relationship between Luke and Ethan…they had a natural rapport from the start and picked up where they left off without skipping a beat. Thought it ridiculous though how quickly thepey whisked Holly and Ethan off the scene…for all they knew when they left Luke was about to be killed. The writing is laughable…the scene with Lulu, Dillon and the bodyguards couldn’t have been more absurd…and Holly, as well as Ethan…wouldn’t have left Luke to die without plotting to rescue him… With that said…Nathan Parsons is for me, the hottest… Read more »

I sure am happy to have Nathan back on GH even if just for a couple of scenes. I wish he was back on GH but know he has a great prime time part so we’re lucky he could make it back at all. Good luck on your new TV show, Nathan, but really do miss you on GH!!!!

I enjoy Ethan ,but Tony has turned me against Luke with his big mouth.I just saw the part where he opened the door, At the gym I saw Ethan get shot on the leg but missed the rest.

It was great to see them both together! Yes, they are natural and sincere. The entire “sendoff” for Luke is dumb! He was just in a mental hospital for carrying out horrible things and now we are on another random adventure. The writing is absurd! I wonder if that is the end of Holly and Ethan for this arc? Ethan is a cutie! I am just ready for the Lulu stuff and Dante stuff to be over and I truly hope the last days of Luke are special and heart warming, not ridiculous and unmemorable…

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
