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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Seeing John Ingle, et all ,during this scene was wonderful and heartwarming. Hoping he is feeling better soon, and that we won’t be losing him for long. Besides, GH needs Edward and Monica.

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… Read more »

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.

ABC Previews General Hospital’s Halloween Episode

Fight Night will definitely have an impact on the lives of the citizens of Port Charles, on the upcoming Thursday, October 29th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Announced by ABC today, along with primetime’s Dancing with the Stars, The Conners, Supermarket Sweep, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, GH is having some ghoulish goings-on for the trick or treat holiday.

According to the GH preview: “As an impending storm approaches Port Charles, Trina and Joss decide to meet up with Cameron and Dev at Charlies before heading off to a Halloween party for the night. Unbeknownst to them, Julian notices the kids are being watched a little too closely by a masked individual. Uneasy and unable to shake the feeling that something is off, Julian confronts the man. Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
