Longtime GH viewers will recall that Lois’ (Rena Sofer) dad, Carmine, was previously showed up in Port Charles on and off from 1994 to 1996 and was played by John Capudice.

Who else would you like to see attend the nuptials? Gloria Cerullo (Ellen Travolta), any other blasts from the pasts who should be present? Let us know in the comment section.

Gloria HAS to attend! PLEASE!!!

Anthoni Gear Luke Spencer for Tracy

Where’s the father of the bride Ned been? Haven’t seen him in months! Is he not walking his daughter down the aisle? Seems a bit strange.

Who is Gloria???

A simple Google search of “Gloria gh” tells you she is Lois’ mother.

Why do you have to constantly be snarky? She wasn’t on Google when she asked the question, she’s “here.” So if you’re going to take the time to reply, just tell her who “Gloria” is. Reminds me of when I was wondering if a particular story was written by the new writers or the ones recently fired. Your reply (not verbatim) “a simple look at the credits” will tell you.

I was wondering if Ned would ever appear again, especially to marry off his daughter, looks like Brooke’s Nonno may be doing the honors.

Wally posted he’ll be back soon. Yes, he’s been MIA for a bit, but he was on the front burner for much of 2023 with the return of Eddie Maine.

Many, including myself, have been wondering. Usually I look for info on “X” (Twitter) but haven’t been on in a while. He was barely on before he got the Eddie Maine story, and then he just disappeared again. It’s glaring and all wrong. There are barely any real Quartermaines left; and all we get is a scene with Lois and Olivia or Lois and Brook Lynn, or Brook Lynn and Tracy. Gone are the family scenes which could have been somewhat revived now that Tracy’s back; Ned, Tracy, Brook Lynn, Lois, should have all been planning her wedding, Ned should be interacting with Gregory (two fathers who’s children are marrying), Michael & Drew (even though this Drew being a Quartermaine still doesn’t work) with Ned AND Tracy over ELQ. They should bring Dillon back too and bring AJ back again and make it stick this time (Carlivati should never have killed him off.) There’s so much opportunity to bring this family back and it’s constantly ignored and reduced to Olivia scenes. Before Tracy came back she was the “force” in this Quartermaine 2.0 attempt at a revival.

Yes, Gloria should be there. The big question is Jackie. Will they get Kim Delaney back or bring in a recast. Otherwise, it already seems rather odd that “Harry” hasn’t mentioned his mother at all during the planning process. Also, it was never mentioned of her divorce with Gregory was ever finalized.

Exactly she is a huge fan favorite And I would love to see her! It is crazy getting all these new assistants and managers when we would love to see more nurses and drs… felix, dr o? And yes Harry’s Mom should be there…

All very valid points. Makes me wonder how many “writers ago” wrote these parts of the story. I also wondering how us fans recall all this yet it can appear the writers do not.

Perhaps one of us could be hired as storyline historians. Haha.

And the thing is all it takes is a “throw away line” such as “Jackie’s covering the conflict overseas” or Gregory asking Alexis to review his divorce papers.

All is forgiven if Frank pulls a major surprise and gets Demi Moore for 2 episodes. I know, I’m dreaming on that one.

I thought I’d already posted but I guess not, so I’ll say it again. Haven’t seen Ned in weeks so I’m thinking it will be nice for Brooke to have her Nonno give her away. I’m not too crazy about Gloria, so doesn’t matter to me if she comes or not. Tracy makes up for two grandmothers.

Where is Ned?

How about Chase’s mother?? No mention of her at all. Did she die and we didn’t hear about it?

Yes she should be

Luke spencer should show up because he is still alive!

Anthony Geary is nearly 77 and comfortably retired in The Netherlands. Despite the poorly written offscreen departure, Luke will remain dead.

When Lulu eventually wakes up she’ll have a laundry list of people she knew who died during her coma.

“Anthony Geary is nearly 77” oh dear ! Don’t even go there… how old are many of us, ( reading the comments by many of the usual posters ) are near that age ourselves!!??

If he’s 77 he could come back to the US and run for President, and be the youngest candidate on the ballot.

Anthony Geary retired long ago and lives in Amsterdam; he has no plans to ever return. And even if “Luke” retured? If the actor just made an appearance and left again, we’d lose Jane Elliott (Tracy) too. With all the love Tracy has for Luke, she’d obviously leave with him. So let’s be thankful we have the wonderful Jane Elliott back on the show. Long may she stay…

Just curious how you know Anthony Geary’s thoughts or plans for his life and actions.

I doubt Luke will show up for the wedding, but it is interesting how he somehow became “the love of Tracy’s life”, based on the talk she had with BrookLynn the other day.

Luke’s still alive out there somewhere. Believe me, I would be the first one to know if he wasn’t. I mean, let’s face it, his chances of going the other direction are very slim.

I can’t think of any other characters I’d like to see return other than Ned. Oh wait, I lied. It would be fun to see Lois’ best friend, Brenda Barrett return for the wedding. I’m sure it’ll be an even filled with unexpected turns, laughs and drama. I like Brook Lynn and Chase together, and hope they do get married. But I wish the writers would end the train wreck that is Finn and Elizabeth already. Sorry, I will beat that dead horse until it happens. That unofficial poll on Daily Drama (Finn & Liz Hot or Not?) proved overwhelmingly that most fans find this couple are NOT a good match.

Ugh; I used to love “Brenda.” But after reading Vanessa Marcils’ Instagram posts if I never see her on any TV show again it’ll be too soon. I’ll leave it at that, other than to say sometimes it’s better not to “know” the actor who plays a character you like.

Hilarious! I feel the same when I read your posts ! Again no offense…

Finn has been fired so I hear.

The actual rumor from a rarely credible online source is that Easton told GH that he’d finish out his contract but not renew.

Brenda was a great character in her original run, but her returns have been a disaster. First time, she brought Luis Alcazar with her. Second time, it was Teddy Balkan. Third time, there wasn’t any cartoonish villains tagging along, but she kinda became one herself, faking a drunken hookup with teenage Michael, just to piss off Carly.

If she wanted to return long term, they might be able to salvage the character again. Certainly would be an upgrade for Sonny over the recent trainwreck he’s getting himself out of after the last 3 years.

Hey, at this point, anyone would be an upgrade for Sonny. Carly, Nina, Ava, which one is the worst? I was wondering about Blaze’s mother, she and Sonny seem simpatico, if that’s the right word. How many women would want to be with a man who makes his living like he does?

Seeing as how I’m not too crazy about either character, I can not think of any other character for either one of them that is as equally boring.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Confronts Finn On His Drinking After Gregory’s Death

The saga of the aftermath of Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) death continuesdon the Thursday May 23rd episode of General Hospital. At Finn’s (Michael Easton), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who knows he has lost his sobriety and has been drinking, attempts to tell the good doctor that she cares about him too much to let him throw away seven years sober.

Finn lashes out at Liz and tells her she doesn’t get to tell him when he is allowed to drink. Liz says she’s looking out for Violet (Jophielle Love) as he in turns looks out for her boys. Finn announces that Liz can stay here and make bracelets with Violet or leave. Next, he opens the door, and she walks out.

Immediately, Liz calls Chase (Josh Swickard) telling him to get over to Finn’s as his brother really needs him.  Meanwhile at the Q’s, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) gives a tender hug to her dad, Ned (Wally Kurth) because she can’t bear the thought of losing him.

Now back at Finn’s, he takes another drink and Violet emerges with the friendship bracelet and inquires where did Aunt Elizabeth go? Finn covers for the situation and says Liz got called back to the hospital, but she can show the bracelet she made to her later.

Just then, Chase and Brook Lynn finally show up. Surveying the situation, Brook Lynn can see that Finn has been drinking. She takes Violet for a walk so the two brothers can be alone.


Chase wants to know what happened, “step by step.” He shoots a look at the bottle of booze and says to Finn, “I mean everything that happened.” Finn tells him that Violet was at school and he came upon their father, dead in his bed.  At the point, Finn also admits he had a drink, maybe more than one, although it’s been such an emotional day he is not sure how many he has had. In addition, Finn did not cop to taking a sip of champagne at his brother’s wedding reception, which started this downfall.


Now the question becomes, what will Finn ask Chase to do? Cover for him? Help him to a meeting? Will he get rid of his brother quickly so he can continue his downward spiral? Weigh-in and share your theory via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Finn Tells Violet That Gregory Passed, While Elizabeth Sees He Has Been Drinking

The raw emotions continued on the Wednesday, May 22nd episode of General Hospital as Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase (Josh Swickard) try to come to grips with the death of their father, Gregory (Gregory Harrison).

In story, Gregory passed away in his sleep and his battle with ALS came to its conclusion. In the pick-up, Finn now has to tell his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) that her grandfather had passed when she returned home from school.

Gingerly, Finn does his best to explain to Violet what happened. Finn tells her that her grandfather’s heart stopped beating, and he wasn’t in pain. Violet bursts into tears saying that she wants Grandpa to still be here and runs into his room calling out for him. Then, in very touching scenes, Finn follows Violet. She asks her dad where her Grandpa is. Finn explains the paramedics took him away. She cries that she didn’t get the chance to even say goodbye.


Next, Finn hugs Violet and tells his little girl that life is so beautiful, but sometimes it’s unfair. He carries Violet back to the living room, but passes by the bottle of booze. He sits her down on the couch and tells her there will be a funeral in a few days so they will get to say goodbye to Grandpa together. When Violet asks where her Grandpa is now, Finn says he is in heaven.

Later, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) shows up and hugs Violet and Finn. She can see right away that Finn has been drinking, especially after eyeing the glass, and the bottle on the counter. Getting Violet out of the room for a moment, Liz tells Finn she can’t even imagine the pain he must be in right now. So, he should go to a meeting and Violet will come home with her for the night.


Finn puts his foot down that Violet will stay with him. He just watched two total stranger, the paramedics, take his dad away. He says he took one drink to ease his pain. Finn stands up to Liz and says he thinks given the circumstances he has a right to do whatever it takes to get through the day. Next, Liz says she can’t stop him, but she will not have him get drunk with his daughter in the apartment, and so, she is taking Violet with her.

Elsewhere, Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) decide at the airport to head back to the Quartermaines, and not take off for their honeymoon, since Gregory died. When they show up at the Q’s, Chase says he wants to be with his brother, but he is giving him time to tell Violet. Next, the newlyweds are greeted by Ned (Wally Kurth) and Lois (Rena Sofer). They tell the two the truth, leaving everyone stunned or in tears. Chase heads out to find Tracy.

Meanwhile, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is holding on to her good luck charm from Gregory as her reinstatement hearing begins. Little does she know, he has passed away. Alexis finds out she is in a court battle with Fergus Byrne (Lane Davies), the brother of the late Neil Byrne.

So, what did you think of the performances of Jophielle Love and Michael Easton in the touching scenes between Violet and Finn? Will Finn end up on a complete bender? Will his brother Chase show up in time to help him? Comment below.
