This week, All My Children fans will get a glimpse of one of their longtime favorites when Walt Willy reprises his role as Jackson Montgomery, but this time on General Hospital.

Willey will join GH in a short arc, that according to a tweet from the actor himself will begin to air this Wednesday, July 10th, with two more episodes next week on July 17th and 18th.

In story, we know that Felicia (Kristina Wagner) has tracked down some information on Martin (Michael E. Knight) for Lucy (Lynn Herring). Felicia revealed that Martin has been receiving $50,000 deposits every month this quarter from a bank in Pine Valley. Lucy knows Marty doesn’t have a law license in Pennsylvania, so she is worried something fishy is going on. Felicia says she needs to go to Pine Valley and investigate and it looks like Lucy is going along with her.  So, will Lucy and Felicia cross paths with Jack in Pine Valley … or Port Charles? Will Michael Knight shares scenes with his old Pine Valley castmate? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Herring said of getting the opportunity to work with Walt, “He’s so good! There is such a twinkle in his eye. He was just so sparkly! We had a lot of fun working together.” Willey shared: “Everyone I met was so welcoming and kind. It was a great experience.”

Walt last appeared on an ABC soap opera back in 2011 when All My Children was cancelled by the network causing a ripple effect on daytime soaps that is still felt today.

Looking forward to seeing Lynn, Kristina and Jack share scenes together on General Hospital? Comment below.

Hoping this could lead to further appearances. Having an attorney, like Jackson Montgomery, on the canvas would be so excellent. Excited to see him!

Lucy and Jackson could be hot

So happy to see Walt again!! Now, all we need is Susan Lucci—Reaching for the stars much? Pardon the pun.


O that would be so good!!! Erica Kane could be going after Lucy company!!!

This is out of left field but wouldn’t it be great if somehow, Tad martin was tied up somehow in this…allowing Michael E. Knight to play a dual role?. I’m just so glad that GH finally made use of a character from AMC in the role he was in when AMC was still with us. I’m still waiting for Roger Howarth to morph back into Todd Manning and for the same thing for Michael Easton to become John McBain again.

Hey James
It would be fun to see MEK do both Tad & Martin.

The network put the kibosh on Todd returning when they killed off Franco resulting in the mess that is Austin.

Two of my favorite characters together. Thank you for whatever amount of time we get to see Walt Wiley again. He is very much missed!

Glad he and Michael Knight will be on together at some point

I can’t wait to see Diane’s face when she gets a look at Jack! Smokin’ hot

Diane and Jack would be a perfect couple!

To those who complain from time to time about vets not being featured, Lucy has been front and center for close to a year now. I look forward to seeing Lucy & Jack interact. Now, Lucy & Erica would be mind blowing!

I really miss Pine Valley and its residents

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if Vincent Irizarri came to General Hospital from Pine Valley and brought along some of his doctor friends, after all General Hospital started as a hospital based show. We have run out of doctors and nurses on GH! And please please please update the hospital and equipment being used, it’s not the mid 80’s anymore!! I’d be happy to be an advisor (I’m serious, because I’ve been a part of EMS/Nursing for over 40 years). Lastly knock off the archaic heart monitor beep beep beep sound, nobody does that anymore, especially on patients who aren’t critical. it’s all monitored at the nursing station which look nothing like what GH has. Okay one more…..patient charts are all computerized with mobile terminals, those patient binder charts also disappeared in the early 90’s. It’s 2023 so you are pretty much 25 years behind the times!

The last major redo of the hospital “hub” was in 2010 (after the bio-toxin explosion). The new set was optimized for high-def cameras. It’s had minor touch ups over the past 13 years.

It takes them a while to catch up, as I remember them overusing the public address system to page doctors well after that went out of vogue.

As for running out of doctors, we’ve got Finn, Portia, TJ, Austin and an occasionally seen Kevin. I’d suggest expanding Dr. Navarro’s role, bring Liesl back on staff and turn up the rock wherever they have Lucas before bringing on those from another show.

Kelly Monaco Celebrates 20 Years on GH and Sam’s Evolution: “All the Pieces Don’t Fit Perfectly Yet, But It’s Certainly Not Broken Anymore!”

Sunday, October 1st will mark the 20th anniversary of Kelly Monaco’s debut on General Hospital as Sam McCall.  And as the story goes, when Kelly finished her run on Port Charles as Livvie Locke (2000-2003), and the show had been canceled, the three major networks were all interested in her to join their soaps.

In the end, GH won out and fans of the ABC daytime drama series have been the lucky ones to have Monaco join the A-list cast of the iconic soap. Throughout Sam’s journey in Port Charles, viewers have seen quite the character growth. Sam started on the show as a con and hustler, and bloomed into a bonafide heroine and a private investigator.

Kelly shared with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue, how she viewed the Sam of old, to the Sam of today: “Sam came on to the canvas only having herself and her brother, always taking care of someone, and never being taken care of.  I think the biggest evolution for her is starting from being a really lonely, scared woman and becoming a woman who is still really independent, but is protected by family and friends and love and relationships and loyalty, and she never had that before.”

In a very poetic way, Monaco added on her character’s development: “She came in bent and broken, and I feel like there’s a lot of her that’s still broken, but she’s constantly sort of putting the Rubik’s Cube together. All the pieces don’t fit perfectly, yet, but it’s certainly not broken anymore.”

Throughout Sam’s two decades in Port Charles she has been in love, suffered terrible lost, found family members, had children, and has been involved in some of the most dangerous and criminal cases involving many a villain as she tried to help bring them to justice.

Currently, Sam is involved in a romance with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).  Viewers wonder if Lulu ever wakes up out of her coma, would that spell trouble for their relationship, and in turn, give Kelly some great meaty story to work with?

Now, in the comment section below, share your congrats to Kelly for her 20-year-run on GH. Then let us know, what has been your favorite Sam story over the years?

On Howarth’s Instagram account, the talented actor shared some photos from opening night of the film with his co-stars and said: “What Doesn’t Float has conquered lower manhattan!! Thanks to these amazing creatives. Next is Los Angeles! They are beautiful talents and cool sweet people.”
