Can General Hospital get any more delicious right now?  Yeah, it can!  News out this morning from ABC Soaps In Depth has that “Evilene” herself, Helena Cassadine is going to cause more havoc for her enemies from Port Charles very soon!

Constance Towers (Helena) is reporting back to work today on the set of the ABC soap opera!  Towers isn’t revealing anything storywise, or even a tease at this time as to what brings Helena back to the GH canvas, so we will all just have to put on our thinking caps or wait for more details to be revealed!

What do you think of Helena returning?  We know that this week it was just announced that Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) is on his way back to GH in mid-November.  So could Helena be wrapped into this?   Weigh-in!

I’m kind of over Helena. She’s grown so boring over the years, and her appearances are starting to make no sense. I bet she’s connected to Duke and everything else.

I tired of Helena years ago. Her storylines are all so redundant. Smitten with Luke, but yet doesn’t hesitate to torment him, terrorizes everyone else by nature. Anything having to do with Helena has gotten old. Look forward to seeing Tristan back. And the plot with Robin definitely needs to start unfolding.

Pulling out all the stops to those ratings up

YES!!!

Was not expecting this. I’ll reserve judgement to see how the story goes. Could be great or a waste of airtime. We’ll see.

I’m looking forward to Tristan Rodger’s return, but would have preferred Laura or Holly over Helena. Maybe we’ll get them all as part of the big 5-0!

Helena probably found out about Danny,and will try to take him from Sam,since the kid is part Cassadine.

More proof to me that this Duke is really Faison. Refresh my memory but weren’t they the ones behind Lucky’s kidnapping in 1999?

Yes they were behind Lucky’s kidnapping!

Thanks Lynn but my theory about Duke really being Faison may be all wrong supposedly they are trying to bring back Ander Hovers.

Perhaps Helena Programed Duke to be a Killer. She did the same for Lucky. Remember Duke has targeted Robin, Kristina, Jason, Anna, etc. Of course Helena’s main target is Luke and Alexis.

WOOO HOOOO I LOVE Helena she is my all time favorite soap villianess. I would love to see her involved in a story with Todd. Now that would be some great scenes!!!!!

I love Constance Towers and welcome her back to GH. Will see how all this plays out, I guess!

yipee…………..more Casadine’s stat!!! Faison and Helena both were a part of the Lucky kidnapping in 1999.

yes Faison and Helena had both been a part of the Lucky kidnapping in 1999.
so glad she is coming backkkkkkkkkkk.,more Casadine please…..stat..

I love this.. her character can go anywhere.. and I love the love fans have for Todd.. he really does belong in Port Charles

I bet she is pulling Duke’s strings. I have thought this all along that she and Faison were behind Jerry and the one behind Jerry was behind someone else … ultimately Helena.

RC and FV have done really great work by bring back so many of the all time favorites!!
It is exciting to see all of them once again!!
Thanks to RC & FV for moving forward and including our long gone favorites!!!

She’s my girl! Hope she brings an ice pick!!

Duke is Duke, but Duke the Killer is pure Helena.

Good news- but please bring back Jackie Zeman as Bobbie!!!

finally! i really think she is controlling duke the way she did lucky……

Happy Robert is coming back..He will put Duke in his place & open Anna’s eyes to his
lies..And Duke has Robin…Anna will never forgive Duke when the truth comes out about
Robin being alive ……Anna & Robert will put their heads together and figure this out for
sure….

geez! has me welling up with emotion….

I’ve grown to love Finola Hughes… and this would make up for the 1-2 day stint Robert did… leaving before Robins’ funeral….

this is the one story… that has me grounded to GH… the return of Robin… to her husband and daughter…. with mom and dad…. and this includes all that Mac has done for Robin…. and notwithstanding… Maxie!

I think the character of Helena is refreshingly evil and fnny. Shetells it like it is and I like that. If written rght this could be fun! Love having Robert back.

Constance Towers is back! YaHoo!!

i hate constance towers . recast her with kim zimmer. ex reva would rule and kick ass as helena.

Robert Scorpio !!!!!!! Can’t wait…

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
