Ian Buchanan To Make Appearances on General Hospital

Photo: JPI

Now that the cat is out of the bag from Daytime Emmy winner, Ian Buchanan, himself, General Hospital fans should be on the lookout for some ghostly Duke Lavery sightings.

According to the actor on a recent Cameo video to a fan, Buchanan shared: “I’m gonna be there on Monday or Tuesday this coming week. Just appearing… ghosting. But I don’t think anybody knows it. You may be the first. Well, I knew it, and people there knew it, but I haven’t heard about it anywhere else. So you may want to watch it.”

Ian became wildly popular as GH’s Duke, having first appeared on the scene in the summer of 1986 till the character “died” in 1989.  However, Buchanan returned as Duke in 2012 until 2015 when Duke died once again, this time apparently forever.  Enter the ghostly visits!

In story, Anna (Finola Hughes) and Duke were a GH super couple back in the 80’s, and in 2015, Duke was shot and killed by Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise)..

So how will Duke re-appear on GH? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.

Duke is likely to appear as a ghost/vision to Julian as he finally exits the canvas. Wouldn’t be surprised if Carlos, Connie or (gasp) Morgan also reappear.

Morgan didn’t appear, because he’s not a ghost!

Well OK, neither is Alexis, but she probably got drunk and accidentally left her body or something.

LOL!! Don’t yell at me, but ICH for Duke. Can’t stand this guy, dead or alive. His voice drives me to….never mind. Merry Christmas, Satan.
Oops—-no festivities in HELL?? Doom and gloom forevermore….

Connie’s white blood stained dress has to by one of the most iconic (and I hate that term) outfits in Port Charles history.

Not sure I like this. First off, why the hell did they have to kill off the character again in 2015? i loved the character of Carlos even if he wasn’t a good guy but when he killed duke, the story became jumbled to me and i really thought the writers bombed big time. Now, they’ll bring Ian back but he will be playing Duke as a ghost? It’s going to be tough for me to take interest here.

Duke was somewhat of a legendary character in GH history, though his origins weren’t really that original, as his story was essentially a rewrite of Luke Spencer, only with a Scottish accent. Club owner doing money laundering for the mob, suddenly drafted by the mob to be more involved in the “family business”, etc. Only in his case the mob wasn’t Frank Smith, but the OG version of the Jerome family. He supposedly died in a warehouse explosion in the early 1990s, but that was shown at the time to be a faked death. He was “disappeared” into witness protection.… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
