When we ran our interview with Jane Elliot (Tracy) last week, and teased what General Hospital executive producer, Frank Valentini said in Soap Opera Digest about the return of John Ingle as Edward Quartermaine for a key scene on today’s episode of the ABC soap, we expected some heart-tugging moments, and boy, did GH deliver!

In what could be the ailing Ingle’s last appearance on GH,  series head writer, Ron Carlivati tweeted, ” Don’t miss the return of the one and only #johningle AKA Edward Quartermaine today on General Hospital!”  The scribe also tweeted an image from the episode here! pic.twitter.com/tpl9BWvo

However after the episode aired, Carlivati took to twitter again and stated, “Okay, who cried when Edward Q gave Patrick & Emma the thumbs up today on General Hospital? I’m man enough to admit I did!”

The scenes in question involved the amazing Jason Thompson, Jane Elliot, Leslie Charleson, as Patrick, Tracy, and Monica,  and of course there was little Emma, who along with Edward, were integral to the hankie-filled moments.

After the jump, watch today’s emotional scene from General Hospital with John Ingle and let us know your thoughts!

I don’t watch the soaps anymore since OLTL was cancelled. But when I saw this article pop up on facebook I had to take look. I love JOhn ENgle, he reminds me of my own grandfather. Makes me so sad to see him so frail. Wishing him all the best. Soaps brought joy to my life from my childhood, so to see them end and to see my favorite characters leave reminds me of the years passing me by.

God bless him!

You don’t know what you are missing. The dream team has done it again at GH! I liked FV and RC alot at OLTL, but loving them at GH, and I being a former GL fan didn’t watch and vowed never to watch GH! The show is simply incredible

John’s appearance on that show was the most emotionally stirring moment, I have seen, on any soap, in many years!

General Hospital is truly coming back! It was a long time coming.

God Bess John Ingle.

Loved this scene and love what Jason Thompson had to say about it on Twitter.
He said when he looked at John Ingle he was not acting –his expression was real life and you could see the emotion on his face. BEST SCENE EVER. Little Emma was adorable when she asked if they would get to see Mommy. Congrats to GH for more must see TV. Thanks

I adore John Ingle and it breaks my heart to think of General Hospital without him. He brought a warmth and comforting presence to GH. He is like the grandfather I never had. *sob*!

They played the emotional angle really well. And it had great impact. If John is retiring I will miss him. But unfortunately none of this makes up for the shameful way the quartermaines and all the other older,established vets have been treated on this show.
As a 42 yr viewer this isnt enough to make me forget that over the last 12 yrs or so the core families and history have been gutted from this show.
It started with the Guza/Phelps regime when they decided to worship Maurice Bernard and the Sonny character.
The Quartermaine’s were killed off and those characters that remained were written horribly like Billy Warlock’s AJ. It was all done to exalt Sonny and to turn the show into a Sopranosesque serial.
Under Cartini the Qs have remained nothing but older window dressing. They have no significant story, their history is not mined and there have been no new younger generation of this core family written back into the show. Cartini have done nothing but give us lip service where they are concerned. They rehired Leslie Charleson and we see her once in a blue moon. Instead of writing a new younger generation of Qs ( perhaps cousins or whatever) they continue to harangue us with talentless younger actors playing Sonny’s children ( hello new Christina) and the children of his never ending stream of insipid enemies (paging Trey, the son of Joe Skully Jr.)
I cant let Cartini off the hook for ignoring the Qs just like the Guza regime. It obvious that their true allegiance lies with their one life to live actors, and truly expounding on GH history is not a priority for them.
I wish our beloved John Ingle peace and prosperity for the rest of his days upon this earth.

OK…. here we go. CARLIVATI is in the process of returning GH to his heyday. I posted on here yesterday I believe, the GH of today, is more like Gloria Monty’s GH than anytime since she left. It is not going to happen overnight. I have the patience to watch what transpires…I do not want to see GH go the way of OLTO. Already there have been returns of the past, both storylines and characters. JMO… Also, my anniversary will be April 1, fifty years ago I started watching.

As I replied during the night, it was a short answer. For those that have watched since day one, we have seen so many ups and downs with GH. I recall in the late 70’s “Luke” got so much hate from a certain group because it was called the Luke and Laura show., Everyone cannot be happy all the time. Guza and Phelps killed the Qs. But then again, did they really, as Jason is in fact a Quartermaine. EVERYONE has a right to their favorites and those they could so without. That being said, as Maurice B said last week, the new “in command” have returned the show to an ensemble show. This from the person that the show had been focused on for years. In the interview he did state that it was great; as far as he was concerned. If in fact the show was so darn awful, why did it again win the Emmy. The show has won more that any othr show. All the neysayers need to sit back and watch. I have been on this ride since day one, and I can tell you that Gloria Monty is in heaven with a huge smile right now. GM saved GH in the late 70’s as FV/RC has in 2012. Just sit back and enjoy.

Oh please! The new regime has had nothing to do with the decimation of the Q’s! They are doing a wonderful job bringing GH back to where it once was! This is the summer, which means the teenagers get big stories so the show can hopefully gain new viewers for generations to come! Yes it was the Sonny show for many years, but many great storylines have come from all of that! Please don’t forget! It wasn’t just Sonny all the time! If we didn’t have Sonny, we wouldn’t have Alexis, Carly still in the mix as she is, wouldn’t have Kate, Olivia, Dante, the list goes on and on! Stop your bitching and enjoy the fact that we still have our GH!!

I read about this on another site. Boy does he look thin. He reminds me of my deceased grandpa with that hat on. 🙂

I sure hope it is not the last we see of him. It must be so hard for him at 84 and having had his wife pass away earlier this year. What an amazing man and career he has had.

Wonderful scene.. It was very heartfelt..
GH has become so awesome with so many emotions.
There are tears, laughs, thrills, surprises and heartfelt touching moments / true soap writing/story telling, a mixture of lives and happenings..
All presented with great suspense that keeps me on the edge.
John Ingle, while retired, will live on. He has brought us many years of greatness.

then on the GH Facebook page, someone said that Ingle died already. Hello he still lives. step back!

But if this his last scene it goes back to the final scene of Steve Hardy, he looked so frail and thin with a raspy voice. It was with Sarah Brown’s Carly. Ruby’s last scene was with Bobbie and Kelly’s and she looked bloated and only a had a few lines. Mary Mae’s final scene was brief and her voice was raspy. A few months before she talked to Stone about Death and was memorable.

I thought the same when Edward was on today. Tracy needed to hear those words from him and GG
needed for him to be a hero once again. THANK YOU John Engle for superb acting. You carried out your “wizardrey “this from the start. God Bless you! !!!

Mr,. Ingle is a trooper and immensely taltented. What he tells in such few words and motions! It will be sad to see Edward go whern that time comes, and I hope GH marks that occasion and allows us to grieve the loss and to celebrate Mr. Ingle’s contributions.

I can’t stop thinking about John Ingle… Edward has been one of my very favorite characters for so many years. The way he comes off so ornery, but really has a soft and loving heart. I’ll miss how he calls the women he cares about “Dear” and how he always kept the people we’ve lost with us. He always spoke of Lila and her roses, Emily and their memories, Allan, even old Jason. He had a love of family and wanted to so badly to keep the Quartermaine’s together… No matter how ch they fought. What’s Thanksgiving on GH without Edward and pizza? I’m so very sad…

This sequence remains one of the most profoundly touching things I have ever seen – anywhere. Not just on daytime TV. I will miss seeing John Engle tremendously, but know he is with his wife now, and Edward and Lila are up in the stars, together, where they belong. RIP John, you are TERRIBLY missed down here.

Passions Alum Brook Kerr Joins The Cast Of General Hospital

Casting news today has that none other than former Passions star, Brooke Kerr (Ex-Whitney Russell-Harris Crane) is set to debut in a new role on General Hospital.

According to EW.com, look for Kerr to make her first Port Charles appearance on the upcoming Thursday, March 5th installment.

Kerr will be playing a doctor, not much else is being shared as to what kind and who she may be involved with on the ABC daytime drama series.

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

Photo: ABC

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

Photo: JPI

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Photo: JPI

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
