GENERAL HOSPITAL: Tracy Leaves for Amsterdam to Put Luke’s Affairs in Order with Bobbie; “Eddie” Takes a Leap of Faith

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Jane Elliot wrapped her recent return to the ABC daytime drama series in her signature role of Tracy Quartermaine.

In story, Tracy announced she has packed her bags and is leaving to join Bobbie in Amsterdam to help her put Luke’s affairs in order. Before she makes her exits, she, of course, has some choice words for Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) to get Ned (Wally Kurth) to snap out of his current state as “Eddie Maine.”

Tracy wants Olivia to move things along to get Ned back to being a “Q”.  Olivia thinks she shouldn’t push him.  Meanwhile, “Eddie” is struggling to finish his song about the ‘siren’, the ‘girl’ he can’t quite envision.  While he is getting frustrated, Lois (Rena Sofer) comes upon the scene.


Lois gives “Eddie” some advice on how to finish the song, and tells him he has to ‘take a leap of faith’.  Inspired by Lois’ words, Eddie heads out to the boathouse to try to finish his lyrics.

Olivia believes she is doing right by ‘Eddie’ by giving him some space, but then confronts Lois and says because of it, there’s room for someone else to slip in, alluding to Lois making a play for Ned/Eddie, her ex-husband. Knowing Tracy put a bug in her ear about this, Lois tells Olivia to go to the boathouse and help Eddie, after all she is his wife.

Brook Lynn arrives home home to see her grandmother leaving town.  Sadly, Tracy informs her she’s going to Amsterdam to deal with Luke’s affairs. Before she goes, Tracy brings up Deception to Brook Lynn and how she can have it and run it. However, Brook Lynn flatly turns down her offer, which Lois comes upon and tells her daughter to think about the offer before just throwing it away. Before she leaves, Tracy and Brook Lynn share a hug.

Meanwhile, at the boathouse, “Eddie” is hearing voices and jumps into the water. Olivia comes looking for him only to find his shirt, and no “Eddie”.

So, are you sad to see Jane Elliot end her most recent run on GH? Do you think the show will incorporate how Tracy is meeting Bobbie in Amsterdam as a way to also write-off the character of Bobbie to address the death of Jackie Zeman? What do you think about “Eddie” jumping into the water? Will he finally become Ned again? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

If “Eddie” jumping into the water somehow magically turns him back into Ned, it will be even stupider than “pinecone-gate” on B&B.

Also, I’m sad to see Tracy leave town again – I was hoping she would have more sparring sessions with Lois. Hopefully she will be back for the holidays, with news of Bobbie’s passing, so they can give the character a proper exit.

Tracy will be missed.

Not in my opinion. I’m glad to see her go, also I don’t care how Ned gets his memory back, just do it. Also clean up his face.

Tracy will be missed and what happen to Monica.? Sounds like Luke is going to be killed off. What an awesome actor he is

I am glad to see Tracy leave. I just wish she would have taken Austin, Mason, Nina, Adam, Cyrus with her and that they would not return. Need some interesting but not drug out storylines. Put Anna with Sonny, Cody with Sasha, leave dex and Joss alone to be happy, find someone better for Carley. Make Chase and Brooklyn more exciting. Give Michael back his backbone. Split Dante and Sam up or make them more exciting. Let Spencer crawl to Esme and let Trina find someone better. Get rid of Portia since her role is not good. Give Curtis his legs back and let him go back to his first wife. End the Ned/Eddie saga. Enough is enough. Stop dragging the plots. It takes forever to get through one and by the time it’s over, we are bored with it.

Who’s Adam? I don’t know Adam and I’ve been watching for about 40 years. I know no Adam

Adam is Joss’ class mate who it appears is having emotional issues caused by pressure from parents that expects 100% from him. A 98% passing grade was not enough

The Adam character is the son of Maurice Bernard

Adam is Joss’ friend (played by MB’s son)

Adam is Joss’ study partner who is studying to be a doctor.

I tjought the same thing never heard of an adam on GH

Dorm mate of Joss. They have been studying together and he has a crush on her. He seems depressed.

Adam (Maurice Bernard’s son, Joshua) is the student at PCU studying with Joss.

Adam is the college student and he’s Maurice’ real life son.

Adam is the kid “stalking” Joss….Maurice Bernard’s real-life son…

Adam has bad things in his mind for Josselyn

I believe he’s Josses study buddy, lol

Are we talking about gh don’t know any Adam I have been watching this show since fresco ,Tony and Bobby

He goes to college with joss they study together he is Sonny’s son in real life

The thought of Anna and Sonny together is detestable. Almost as bad as her with Luke or Sonny with Emily.

Sonny and Ana are friends and nice he is friends with Laura
and alexis and goood and bad with Ava .but Nina how could he marry her .if he doesn’t want Carly back in his life then bring back brenda to bounce on Nina. Ha aha

That really would be interesting. Sony and Brenda were so good together

Yes.! Brenda and Sonny!

I agree

Agreed! What’s wrong with Anna and Sonny being great friends! Not everyone has to have nooky! Lol! Their friendship has never been forced and it flows naturally. And I happen to love Valentin with Anna!

I agree with Sher!

FINALLY!! You nailed it!!! Although, I’ve always wanted to get rid of Elizabeth too. I can’t stand her…but I’m sure the only one that feels.that way.

I agree about getting rid of Elizabeth and that Dr. boyfriend too, who keeps doing weird things with his lips. Really annoying…

Liz is a staple on G. H. Never get rid of her. I’ll have to watch his lips.

I agree. He’s always smiling even when scenes are sad. Why?

Elizabeth need a better storyline.

I have to agree with most of what u r saying. Things drag on TOO long!!!!


Why would you even suggest something like getting rid of those actors. They’re ALL doing excellent jobs My advice to you, join the writers team or just watching the GH. PERIOD!!

Agreed, if you don’t like the way the writers are writing, don’t watch!

Haha. Portia is great with Curtis. Sam and Dante are good. Carley and drew are good together. I agree with the rest.

Yes I agree I thought finally put to end on this false Nina good person she is nit and what Michael trag on and don’t tell all ready and now back with calentine and let them suffer and go away ,and should give award for the actress who plays Charlotte but then send away too. Tired of it all Michael and sonny back together now is sad and don’t like this new Kristina and Molly is boring and why can’t Alexis get some returns helping drew out of prison and give her law license back and let her have fun romance make love with some One.

I agree send off Nina valentine off some where and let sonny know in a note out all the lies and will Michael get some bravery in him say something always a chicken and make Curtis well all ready and this stupid story line with the two women wants Curtis who cares all ready .

Who is Adam? And I love the actor who plays Austin I loved him since one life to live and likes him to stink around and hope they don’t screwy with him on gh nice an actor ,not with Ava .I wish they bring back Ava brother she would take care of them

I totally agree

My sentiments exactly
Get rid of all of them.

Sonny needs to be with Carlie, he is a mob boss. He and Anna not a good match. He needs a loyal wife he can trust and who can stand up to the 5 families to protect her family. Lulu needs to wake up and get back with Dante, And Sam needs to be back with Drew.

I’m not bored with it, so please don’t speak for me.

Wow! I couldn’t have said it better. I agree with everything you said, except I don’t want Esme with Spencer, but I also don’t like his pairing with Trina. I still want Jason back.


So basically you just don’t want a show that doesn’t center around Carly. The Narly fans are the worst things about GH. They think that the show is made exclusively for her character and no one else. They make it so unpleasant to be apart of any groups dealing with GH

About time Ned starts to remember his wife

Hey it’s a soap …lol….and Ned getting his memory back is fine with me…this has been one dragging storyline with this amnesia…we had one with Sonny and that was hard enough to watch…bring back Ned so we can wrap up the Nina blowup please…as for Tracy leaving again I’m bummed ..I love Tracy who brings that much needed spark to The Qs since Monica is off the scenes now except for in voice…I too hope she will return for the holidays which will be a sad time because i too think she will bring the news of Bobbys passing. When that happens I would like to have Tracy meet with Carly to personally tell Carly and I’m sure both actors will showcase their wonderful acting skills …I can see Tracy being her empathetic caring self towards Carly ..I think it will be worthwhile to see.

Would be interesting if Carly and Tracey be came friends to get even with people that were stupid evil.but don’t know if they liked each other

If Tracy is not planning on any more reoccurring rolls. They could kill both her and Bobby off in Amsterdam, or on in a plane crash.

I agree with each of you❤️❤️❤️

I love Jane as (Tracy ). She is such a great actress. I do hope she comes back soon. I love her character.

They have gotten rid of Al the powerful families . Bring the Quartermains back and add the Casadeines. Glad Sonny is still on set. He should be back with Carly. Bringing in new powerful families would make for new storylines.

Never was so thrilled to see someone leave! That witch was a thorn in everyone’s side.

Me too, I can’t stand her. Brooklyn should take the 51 percent, keep one 1 percent and give the rest back to Deception. It would make things a lot better with her friends..

Feel bad for Brooklyn in all this mess she got her self into ,she should make up her mind all ready

That’s why I love the Tracy character so much!

Violet – you’re fighting City Hall on this one.

Safe assumption that most loyal viewers treasure any moments we get with Tracy. With Leslie Charleson not appearing, Scotty, Laura and Tracy are the only characters from the 1970s still on the active canvas (Robert joined in 1980).

Just sad they couldn’t figure out a way to have Tracy do a voiceover call or overheard through the door conversation with Monica.

Wouldn’t be surprised if this is a temporary departure and she’s back in a few months. It’s definitely the start of Bobbie’s exit story.

Yes, I know I would get all kinds of flack from my statement, I’ve always been a minority here, but my joy got the better of me. She’s a hateful old woman that I’ve never been able to take. I know she has a back-handed way of doing good things but I cant always see it as others do.

Tracy is a wonderful, very intelligent and talented, crafted character not to many women can play that type of character, many, many to her as a professional, and to the writers too. If you hate her that much is because she is excellent at her job.

So you’re one of those who only likes very one dimensional characters, huh?

That’s what makes her character so great! I wish she’d never leave again.

Hmm Ttacy? People cry to have legacy characters BACK… not gone.

Amen to that. Good riddance to the wicked witch of the West!!

It really looked to this Devil like Jane was having a hard time getting through these scenes, so I suspect this is somehow leading up to how they’re going to write Bobbie’s death into the show. I really hope they don’t go with the plane crash cliche, since that’s how they wrote Victor Kiriakis out on Days… and then followed it up with some cheesy sub plots that made no sense at all.

Using the Fuzzy Devil Math calculator in my brain, I don’t think GH could be back on the scripts written by the “real” writers yet, but maybe the scabs were told to write it this way as a prelude to the actual Bobbie storyline, which would be written by the real writers upon their return.

As for Ned’s memories coming back just because he jumped in the water? I only WISH it were that easy, but somehow I doubt it. I do believe that Lois’s presence is somehow thawing out his brain, even if only on the subconscious level for now, so hopefully the process won’t take too much longer.

I love Tracy’s character… she plays it so well! Love her hair

BLQ and Chase need to end she should get Tom Hardy Jr as her love interest played by Lamon Archey.

Was so disappointed to see Jane Elliot leave again as our beloved “Tracy.” Her departure was handled very poorly IMO. She never said goodbye to her friends Finn and Gregory…. didn’t even have her bod her son goodbye. Very poor writing for such an iconic character. Quite disgusted actually. Makes me not even feel like watching a show with such bad writing…

Tracy definitely belongs in General Hospital and an icon for so many years! Plays her part so well, will miss her and hope she returns soon, and yes give Bobbie her perfect send off for another icon of GH! Rest in peace Jackie and Tyler Christopher

Well said thanks

Yes she does

Tracy helping Bobby is their way of them to conclude Barbara, character and Ned/Eddie ,is his way of recapturing Ned memories.

I love Tracy she makes the show interesting and funny. A typical rich grandma.
I don’t understand are they writing out bobby as dead or just ???.
Ned,good old Ned. Sometimes in life as a business owner myself you just want to be someone else,but reality kicks in. He needs to get his memory and still do both as a musician and a business man.

Keep the actress on the show!!! She is one of the best the show has to offer!!! Don’t lose her again! Long live, Tracy! Well, at least with Jane Elliott!

I agree thst Tracy should stay on GH. We need another older actress on the show.

I’m not a soap writer – but it would have been so easy – have Bobbi visiting her son, the remaining Spencer’s fly to be with her after a sudden hospitalization…. and she passes with her family.

Or, Bobbi was seldom seen the past year…. one day Bobbi does not show up for work – very odd- Michael is contacted to check on his grandmother… finds her passed away….

At least don’t have her killed off by Cyris….

I think Ned will come back because he was having flashes and remembering moments with his daughter and Olivia. Maybe they’re going to do what they did with Sonny and blend Ned and Eddie into “Neddie”.

Why is Tracy leaving town with Bobby when she passed away months ago?
That was disturbing to say the least.

Reality vs Story.

The actress who plays Bobbie passed away. The show has not addressed her character’s fate. Huge difference.

Love Jane. Love Tracy. It must be a blast for Jane to portray Tracy. I will miss Tracy. I have good laughs whenever there’s a Tracy episode.

I think Tracy must be in GH because she brings in a very dynamic character in GH, she’s a very strong and ambitious character, an actress that knows her craft well, and she does an excellent job . The Jackie Z/ Bobbie is another story, she was an actresses that played a character that evolved into someone else so many times that people adored, she needs more respect and love when she’s send off, beautiful woman, mother and actress.

Charlotte is really bad she needs to get caught, enough she’s a child. Please don’t make her a criminal, she’s such a smart,talented actress …

I hate to see Tracy go, but I think it will be used to facilitate the exit of the Bobby Spencer.
It will be a really heartbreaking storyline, but I hope they give it as much justice as they did with Epiphany’s exit.
Jacky Zeman was an icon of GH and deserves a glorious send off.

All signs point to a return of character Luke Spencer returning to general hospital

Yes I do think this is a time that he’s going to remember that he is Ned

Why Tracey to leave I thought she was going to take quartermain business person .and see if Ned came back .and hope that Olivia get to keep Ned or Eddie .it is nice to see Lois again ,

She sure has such gorgeous blue eyes.

It wa# nice that Tracey messaged Bobbie but was sad because was past tense now because she is gone and never got her tribute of who she was and can’t do a scene with anyone again ,I think that actress got cheated ,she is gone now and was a main character that show have have something of tribute with passing of her story line a little about Bobby spencer passing to as much as the lady actress her self not fair disappointment in abc /gh.I loved Tracey came back and also like the only leader of the family left since they put Monica on a stupid business trip never to return and makes her look bad as she cares for her family and makes her look like she has not and should give her some respectful lending if she is not returning and if in real life some thing bad happened to her and how she left good or bad is sad and thiught abc was better then that and gh should give long time respect to there actor and give some to her fans complete.Tracey was great .sorry to see her go but was a nice visit and a great actress always and they should get special awards to Tracey ,Bobby ,Monica for all done and sorry thiught was waste to bring up Luke why not included Laura to in this trip

Is so sad of the person who plays Mac I thiught he finally have a chance of having a story line and find out he has a child all these years .and why don’t Robert and him ever work together anymore and help him with the true a happy ending for the actor playing Mac and hope he comes back he is truly a good guy thankful all these years and hope gets better soon

I hope Olivia finds Eddie/Ned .but what does the actor who plays him I wonder want character he likes more does he have a say in this .

I am mad why is the writers ruins Anna history ha ,why not pick on valentine and Nina history is babe all she has done is very bad ,poor Anna ,she need some love

I think that Eddie will come back as Ned.

Somehow, the Eddie story line must end. That’s all I have to say about that.
Tracy is a classic stable of GH, she is one of the reasons I watch. She deserves a visible ongoing storyline, even from Amsterdam.

I think the Jackie Zeman’s memorial celebration is way overdue and deserves stand alone attention. There is no need to tie anyone to Jackie but Jackie, If there is a tie-in it should be Carley reflecting on Luke and Jackie.

I can’t wait for JASON return, his contract is almost over at B&B AND I heard BRENDA AS Well Bye NINA

I think putting lukes affairs in order are a waste of time. He is still alive snd so is jason and that will come to light sometime in the future.

Yup, yup!

I think it’s about time that GH says good bye to jackie( bobby, after all she’s been on so long . I’ve watched GH from the very first day , got my mother and also my grandmother hooked on it. Grandmother thought how foolish this program was but it didn’t take her long before she was a fan, loving everyday to watch it ( only on for 30 min back then) she would tell how she thought it should be ( she had all planned out her story ways Haa bless her!
I’m with her the writers seem to drag the story lines way to long, sometimes get bored while waiting for them to end them!!!
Let’s give Jackie a honorable good bye! With love & respect, she deserved it

Knowing that the writer’s strike delayed many of these storylines for months, I’m glad to see things moving along now. Bobbie has been in Amsterdam sorting out Luke’s affairs for months and months. (How complicated can it be?) But I imagine that Tracy will be the one returning to PC to let folks know Bobbie passed away over there. (At least, I hope they finally can get to the tribute for Jackie.)

As for Eddie/Ned…if Bobbie can take months to sort out her brother’s affairs, how long can Ned/Eddie hold his breath in the frigid Fall waters of upstate NY? Let’s see…Anything just so I don’t have to hear that damn song again.

Of course I’m sad to see Tracy leave. Jane Elliot is one of the most talented and compelling actresses in GH history. Every time she returns, it’s a gift to viewers. As for the Bobbie twist, yes, I’m sure this is how they’ll finally pay tribute to Jaclyn Zeman. I hope it’s an amazing tribute worthy of her.

The Eddie jumping into the water stuff was one of the dumbest things on GH in a long time. Clearly the scab writers had no idea how to wrap that storyline up. I LOVE seeing Lois back, but I hope it’s done soon.

Bring back Tracy

Love General Hospital.

I’m so sick of all the negativity towards Nina. The woman has been through hell created by her own mother, husband and best friend When she came to PC it was just to start her life over. Any women that wants to be a mother and be denied that or have it taken from them. Would be reasonably upset being betrayed by your mother, husband Clay and best friend Ava. Hearing that the person who caused your accident while you were pregnant is expecting. After you spent 20 in a coma awaking still to yet another nightmare. To discover that those same persons who caused your accident had a child together. It sent her over the edge she lost complete touch with reality. She had no one to pull her off the edge. She went to jail and than discovered afterwards that her mother lied about the death of her baby. She hasn’t known not one day of peace. Her mother continued to lie to her by telling her that their was only one baby. When in fact there were twins. One baby was given away and the other stolen. Than others find out the identity of her children and proceed to keep it from her because they don’t like her or the daughter. I understand being angry at her lack of judgement by reacting inappropriately according to them. She couldn’t make him do anything that he didn’t want to do. He didn’t want to deal with his past life. Everyone attempted to get him to do so. She tried to tell Carly about finding Mikeson. Carly went for her jugular without even trying to listen to anything that she had to say. The sting of her words made her shutdown. How do you keep saying that she should have tried again. How much more pain was she supposed too accept from Carly and her family. She finally helped Sonny see the truth he needed to face his past. So, those that don’t like her it was okay for them to withhold information from her. She didn’t withhold information, she just gave in to Carly meanness and just let Sonny find out the truth on his own. She’s not perfect and she’s not worse than Carly. These two women are two sides of the same coin. They both made numerous mistakes their mistakes are done out of love and fear. Nina has apologized for her mistakes. Her pain always causes her to react. That’s what she needs to control.

The current writers are boring. Every scene plays just a tiny part and they move onto the next story line without completing the whole scene. I been watching GH for 50 years and it get more stupid.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Proposes to Brook Lynn; Kristina and Blaze Share a Kiss

Finally, many GH viewers got their wish, when on the Monday, December 4th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Chase (Josh Swickard) got down on one knee (a few times) and proposed to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton).

At first, Brook Lynn balked at his attempt as she believed Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois (Rena Sofer) were pressuring him to do so. When she tells Chase marriage is off the table he pulls out an engagement ring. Chase reveals he was planning on proposing at Christmas, so he had the ring ready to go. A romantic Chase shares that he doesn’t want to waste one more day as he clearly knows what matters now … her!  With that, Chase gets back down on his knees and proposes again, and this time Brook Lynn says, “yes!” The two seal the deal with a kiss!

Molly (Kristen Vaganos) breaks the news to TJ (Tajh Bellow), that she now wants to accept her sister, Kristina’s (Kate Mansi) offer to be their surrogate, after all the failures they have been through in trying to find a candidate that will stick.  While TJ voices his concerns, he eventually comes around and tells Molly, “Let’s have a baby,” and now seems excited about the prospect of Kristina being the answer to their prayers. They seal the deal with a kiss!

Kristina and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) get together with a bottle of champagne, since Blaze’s latest song just hit number one on the charts. During their conversation, Kristina asks what is Blaze’s real name? She reveals it’s “Alison”.


Later, Kristina opens up about her past and her abusive relationship with Keifer, her short marriage to Trey and then how she went away to college and fell for her professor Parker Forsythe (formerly Ashley Jones).  She then reveals Parker went back to her ex. However, Kristina’s takeaway was she realized she was clearly into women. That leaves the moment open for Blaze to make a move on Kristina and the two share a kiss.

Photo: JPI

So, three kisses moved the stories forward on this episode of GH. Which are you most happy about? Chase and Brook Lynn getting engaged? GH moving forward with a same-sex romance for Kristina and Blaze, or TJ and Molly coming together to agree to let Kristina be their surrogate? Three kisses, three different stories.  Let us know via the comment section below.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Photo: JPI

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

Share your congrats and well-wishes to Jon for 30 years as GH’s Dr. Kevin Collins via the comment section below.
