Jerry Jacks and Batwoman on the same screen?  Well, not exactly, but good news for talented actor Sebastian Roché and his fans.  The former evil Jacks of Port Charles has landed a recurring role on the new CW series.

According to Deadline, in Batwoman, Roché, is set to play Dr. Campbell, one of Gotham’s most well-respected plastic surgeons and philanthropists.

Sebastian is no stranger to the CW having previously appeared in both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals for the network.

Roché shared his enthusiasm of his new gig sharing on Twitter: “I’m heading to Gotham”

The DC standalone series starring Ruby Rose and it premieres tomorrow night (Sunday) at 8 PM EST.

The log line for the new series shares: “Based on the DC character, Kate Kane (Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. In a city desperate for a savior, she must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Will you be checking out Sebastian on Batwoman? Think Jerry Jacks might somehow turn up in Port Charles again someday?  Back in June of 2019, during a chat between Robert and Jax, it was revealed that Jerry had escaped from Steinmauer! So, anything is possible. Comment below.

I have seen him in other things other than GH and he really is fun to watch in anything he does. I am very happy for him and hope this series has a good run.

Well that pretty much rules out any chance of him showing up in Port Charles anytime soon.

Plastic surgeon & philanthropist?? Yeah, that might be his “cover gig”. But when has Sebastian ever NOT been the bad guy?? Hell, in his last gig (Man in the High Castle) he actually poisoned Adolf Hitler, because he didn’t think he was evil enough anymore!!

I am happy for him and his future recurring run in Batwoman but I hope one day he can come back to GH as Jerry Jacks. They did say he escaped from Steinmauer and I want to see Jerry Jacks again. Maybe someday they will bring him back and hopefully he can come back for an extended period of time. Maybe do an extended arc with him in it? I want to see him again.

Agreed! Roche’ is extremely talented and never disappoints, no matter the role he is playing! However, his many continuing non-GH acting triumphs mean that Jerry Jacks will most likely not be visiting Port Charles for the foreseeable future, and that is indeed a crying shame! For me, Helena and he are the “real deals” when speaking of the soap’s top-tier villains…all other recent substitutes are only a pale imitation of the treachery and chaos they embody!!! (Except for Dr. O….but there is only so much evil-doing she can accomplish by her lonesome!) Short of Helena (or perhaps, Victor) Cassadine’s return(s) from the dead, I cannot imagine any other GH antagonist of yore who can compare with the terror a Jerry Jacks sighting in Port Charles brings! Please come back soon, Sebastian!

I hope he does. I even have an idea for a story they could do if he ever returns.

Sebastian’s Jerry Jacks always makes any GH storyline better simply by his mere presence! His gleefully naughty, roguish demeanor just thrills me to no end…I love that no matter how evil his plans, he never fails to have that twinkle in his eye as he merrily implements them!

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
