Many will say Stefan but i want Mike to return…then they can have Ava’s mom Delia also appear…Delia agrees to perform a song at the nurse ball…at the last moment Dee’s piano player is replaced and its Mike(does he even play piano…id’tk…lol) and what a hilarious wtf look there will be on Dee’s face when she see’s Mike and mistakes him for her husband Roger…GH could use more humor…i’d love it!!!

Ditto! I loved Mike and it was nice to have Sonny have a normal father. Now Mike would have a new granddaughter, and maybe he could help Michael too. Or Morgan.

Stefan Cassadine

I still want JVP : Carlos

Jimmy

Personally, I would like to see Serena return full time! And now that Kim Matula is no longer part of B&B, I think she would make a good Serena.

For a brief return, however, I want to see Courtney come back as a vision for Jake. If he doesn’t have his memory (and true identity) back by the Nurses’ Ball, I think it would be great for him to get a visit from his sister. Plus, having Alicia Leigh Willis back for an episode or two would be spectacular.

Courtney wasn’t Jason’s sister. She’s Sonnys sister, which is why sonny is Spencer’s uncle.

Jimmy

Yes, that makes sense, I confused her with Emily.

Isn’t Courtney Sonny’s sister? Am I remembeting correctly? Weren’t she and Jason a couple?

Courtney wasn’t Jake aka Jason’s sister…they were involved. Emily was his sister. Speaking of Emily I wish she would come back and be with Nikolas!! I think the choices kind of suck, but I would choose Mike or Serena. The original actress is still working and acting so they could cast her!

Jimmy
Guest

You’re right, I confused the characters. But yes, I would love to see Emily back! We need more Q’s!

I agree with you about Serena, but I would like to see Carly Schroeder return if possible.

Courtney is not Jason’s sister. She was Jason’s ex-wife and is Sonny’s half-sister. You must be thinking of Jason’s adopted sister, Emily Quartermaine instead, played by Natalia Livingston. I myself don’t care to ever see Courtney, aka Kung-Fu Barbie again. She can remain dead and buried.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Yes, you are right, I was not a regular GH viewer back then so I only vaguely remember the character, but I liked her. And I would love to see Emily back, I really miss her. She’s much better for Nikolas than Liz or Britt or this new Ivy chick IMO

OMG please bring back Stefan Cassadine!!!!!! But he might be limited on story since Laura isn’t in town, so I will say bring back Serena Baldwin. That will have Scotty on screen more and she would be a good love interest for Michael and Morgan!!

Lucy D.

I voted for Serena Baldwin, since I think that character has great long term possibilities. I wouldn’t mind Stefan, but NO NO NO to Courtney

Love all of these characters, wish they could all come back, lol. But if I had to pick one, I would go with Courtney and the lovely Alicia Leigh Willis. Don’t know if they would be bringing her back from the dead, or if she would appear as a ghost, but I would love to see Courtney get a chance to meet and interact with her son Spencer. There’s so much material there, since she’s been gone for 9 years now. Would really like to see how they played that story. Loved Stephen Nichols as Stefan, of course Ron Hale… Read more »

Lemme get this straight. 2 of them are Cassadine related and 2 of them are Corinthos related. And then the wild card thrown in is Serena.

I wouldn’t mind a flash back moment with Courtney, just for the sake of her son. But I think it would be better to bring back Mike. Just to have closure for his storyline and move on.

Christy
Guest
Christy

1 cassadine, 1 matthews (step sister to sonny), 1 corbin (step father to sonny), and 1 baldwin. Courtney had an adulterous affair with Nicholas and a baby, but no she’s not a cassadine either.

I don’t see the point in bringing a character back just for a short lived buzz then crickets with such a bloated cast there are so many characters jockeying for a real storyline. Howe about stopping the GH variety show and write good storylines for the cast they already have .. All of a sudden Sabrina and Carlos popped back up… I haven’t been all that happy with these parade of characters returning anyway. I waited for Felicia and Maxi to have a meaningful story, its like they barely know each ohter…where is Max Scorpio they put him on recurring,… Read more »

Isn’t it amazing that TPTB couch rewarding the fans’ loyalty by allowing us to choose from 4 characters to return for the Nurses Ball and Laura Spencer is conveniently left out of the choices? These people infuriate me. I hope Tony realizes that even theaters crumble and fall .

OneQuill
Guest
OneQuill

I will not be voting, as I don’t really think any of the 4 offered could carry a story line. The closest one to doing that would be Stefan Cassadine, and Helena is already back, so it would just be more of the same, and going after Lulu again. That cards played out already. The character(s) I would like to see brought back to the show go back a long time. I’d like to see Richard Dean Anderson return as Jeff Webber, having put his demon drug problem long behind him. It would be interesting to see the interaction with… Read more »

CTwildheart

I could see Helena having Courtney all this time, and I can see her in many storylines. Serena would have many storyline options also. I’d rather we meet a new Cassadine, unless they bring back Laura also. Would love to see Mike, but not with a new actor. So I hope it’s one of the ladies.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

I want Stephan BUT I’m not voting for him because its a one day shot at the Nurses Ball. I want Stephan back FULL TIME! And really, I could see all these characters coming back full time so I wouldnt vote for any of them.

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

Yeah Timmm, I get what you’re saying, and I too, would want Stephen Nichols back to GH full-time. Though, from what I’ve read in various websites, the actor may not want to return to DAYS or GH full-time. So, I’ll take what I can get, you know? …a few days of Stefan or recurring, works for me. Yes, I’d prefer him full-time, if Stephen is open to that.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Wow, wouldnt it be nice to turn down work! Stefan must be comfortable. Good for him. I dont see him doing any other acting? Regardless, your right, something is better than nothing but I hate when you get a small taste of a recurring like Duke, Lucy, Scott, Mac and Felicia and then you dont see them for weeks.

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

I know, yeah, I’m so grateful to have Lucy, Scotty, Bobbie, Duke, Mac & Felicia, and… sporadically Kevin. Though, I agree it is frustrating to see some of these believed characters and actors just here and there. I wish some of them were on a solid contract, like Lucy Coe! 🙂

Cat

Bring back Stefan! He was a tolerable Cassadine. With them there is always suspense and drama

Jeremy

It would be great if Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans returned to GH. I know Catherine Bell, died, or maybe she had a twin.

Timmm

OMG, yes, everyone lives in the end on GH and for those two to walk back into Port Charles would be great! I dont think either of their bodies were recovered?

Jeremy

Totally, everyone seems to live on GH. Yeah, I don’t recall what went down with Stefan and Catherine.

Carolinagirl
Guest
Carolinagirl

Why do I have a feeling it won’t matter what the fans really think with this “poll”? The GH website does not show a running talley of which character is getting the most votes so we’ll have no way of knowing if who we voted for actually is the one that’s shown. Seems to me that “Fan February” may turn out to be “who the TPTB want and we’ll say it was the fans’ choice regardless of the actual votes.” Some transparency in the polling would be nice.

Jimmy

Truth be told, there are so many GH characters I want back. First and foremost, Lucky and Laura should have been back for this whole Fluke/Luke story. Laura would be able to see right through the imposter, and I still really hope she comes back at some point for the story. Same with Lucky, he should have been told about what happened to his father, and I would love for him to come back so they can work through their issues (after Luke killed his son). I also want to see more of Liz’s family back on screen and that’s… Read more »

Stefan , will bring a whole lot of surprises and suspenses with him !!
He is needed.. 🙂

Jeremy

Yeah! Stefan does have the most to offer on the canvas. He’s got rich history, and it would be a hoot for Spencer to meet his (great) Uncle Stefan. I would love to see those scenes, Stephen has a great smile, and I can only envision their chemistry, too. Lots of good story if Stefan is brought back by fans.

I would say I want Courtney and Serena back .

But if I had to really think about it I want Jake Spencer back from the dead. GH was wrong for killing him off , so I want him to return for Elizabeth & Jason. Let Jason get a Chance to know his son and be apart of his life. Danny needs his big brother , gh can do it they bring others back from the dead why not him .

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Courtesy/ABC

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
