Ingo Rademacher Makes Another Return To General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is back, yet again, and the timing could not be more perfect!

With Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) marriage imploding over the sudden death of their son, Morgan (Bryan Craig), and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) ingratiating herself into the Corinthos household, look for Jax to return to Port Charles hopefully with more info in the role he played in securing Josslyn’s kidney donor from the black market ring then he previously let on.

Ingo Rademacher let the cat out of the bag on his exciting return to the ABC daytime drama series via his Instagram account where he wrote, “Back! @generalhospital”

The popular actor’s return will be just in time for the all-important November sweeps ratings period of stories.

So, happy to hear Jax will be back? What information will he have on Nelle? His part in Josslyn receiving a kidney?  What will he do when he sees Sonny and Carly ripped apart? Share your theories below!

The character of Nelle isnt working as i originally hoped…i found Carly too accepting of Nelle into her home just because she gave kidney to Josslyn…and at first it seems she was forced to give the kidney…who lets someone into their home they barely know-i dont want blood relatives in my home as it is-lol…Nelle maybe Nina’s daughter…at first i thought maybe she was Carly’s with Tony Jones but then she should be older than Micheal?…Jax i can take him or leave him-i know he is popular but i never cared for the character…i always felt he and Linda Dano… Read more »

Felicia was too campy…and Linda was often side glancing like she was reading cue cards…people would talk as if she was the best thing to hit AW…ratings really werent that great when she was on and AW wasnt the top soap it once was…its the 70s era when Beverly Mckensie played the scheming Iris who was obsessed with daddy Mac and hated his young wife Rachel when the show was at its best and was hugely popular…When Bev left the show lost one mllion viewers…she was the actress here to remember as well as vicki Wyndam and Jackie Courtney who… Read more »

you had me roaring with laughter…. “thank you” “…who lets someone into their home they barely know-i dont want blood relatives in my home as it is ” right ? I agree with you … that Nelle is losing track; steam ; edge ; mystique at least thus far.. she isn’t smothering Michael… like Carly she’d mow him down. Please soap gods… do not pair her with she’s gotten in too fast… with ; Sonny and Carly business… to even make it interesting… down the road… right ? it’s beddie bed time… and see the fallout is this going to… Read more »

Jimh I also have to throw in Jennifer Leak as Olive Gordon. I loved that character almost as much as I loved Barbara Rodell as Joyce Coleman on ATWT. GOTTA get rid of Jacquie Courtney’s alice..once the actress moved to llanview as Pat Ashley/maggie that’s when I liked Jacquie Courtney…as well as the actor who played Steven..not until he became Tony Lord on OLTL

Yes…she was another great actress from the show…and there were many back then…i did hate it when they had her kill off John Randolph-dont recall if the actor wanted to leave or not …also enjoyed Roberts Blossom as the evil Cory servant Sven…and the late Barry Jenner who played Olive’s lover Evan Webster!!!

LOL, Jimmy….please, soap gods; let Nelle be Nina’s. Give this woman a break. I have this ominous premonition that Nina will be ‘searching’ for a baby, in every ‘way’ possible!!!!
It would be some twist, as I mentioned weeks ago, if Nelle and Kiki were twins. MadMaddie gave one baby to Ava and the other to an ‘adoptive’ mother. I do realize that the twin-stories on any soap has been played out….but….
I think it falls into the category of very soapy and bubbly. Don’t you think? Too stagnant? LOL.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Nelle and Kiki-faternal twins separated at birth…Yes, The Stagnate Twins do belong to their Stagnate(no dna needed there-lol) Mom Napni(means Nina puts me to sleep-lol)…Sorry, C-i know you like Michelle(Nina) and i tried to at least tolerate her but to me she is like nails on the chalkboard!!!

@Jimh(leave it to beaver). Hey, there, my friend, I will admit, that’s too funny, Jimmy. Kiki did very well this past week. Nelle? I keep liking her less and less. She’s always an ear-shot away….looming. She just appears out of nowhere. Sonny has had multiple nightmares–what follows? There’s instant-Nelle right behind the door. Isn’t she supposed to be upstairs tending to Avery? But, that’s ok, say what you feel…I like that…. just too funny. Yes, I love Michelle, but Nina needs to go on Morgan’s meds ( sans Ava’s placebos), LOL. Yet, I do love Nina, as well…I love her… Read more »

Hello Celia ^ Funnnny ! about “instant-Nelle within ear-shot – looming -” if only the Corinthos could be as funny ——— yeah, shucks… ie: Nina character… I was / am actually interested in Curtis… helping Nina… regardless if it’s “against” the law… and even if it works against him wanting on the Port Charles PD… so what… this is Curtis.. and his chemistry with Nina… works i’m hoping that the writers get Nina character all fired up and in charge.. when Valentin gets back… as these two are stratosphere bigger than life. ahem GH ! get Nina out of the… Read more »

Agree with you–character of Nelle is not working–she’s a cold fish, introduced poorly.
Any character who comes on and tells the story that her parents sold one of her kidneys is doomed. No prep, hazy background story, muddled storyline, etc. It’s a shame.

Nelle WILL sleep with Sonny. Either he will be drunk or he will be drugged. She is creepy! Mr. Corintos! Mr. Corinthos! WHAT!

We agree, Timmmy. That has been my impression of Nelle from the onset.

Jimh agree…as for John Randolph Harding Lemay who over saw and wrote AW’s greatest era back then was irritated by certain actors and stories and pushed back against P&G hard to get his vision of Bay City on air. He couldn’t stand the two actors who were most popular as Steve and Alice which is how they ended up at OLTL. He said Jacquie Courtney once became so hysterical in a scene she mumbled all his good lines because she couldn’t bring the meaning across. George rheinholdt was a beast to work with and he didn’t like pat Randolph encumbered… Read more »

No big surprise here. I think we all expected a return as his association (‘underground’, LOL) with Nelle is not over.

You’re right, Celia. More in the ongoing saga of ho-hum. I thought maybe Jax was returning to comfort Joss or even Carly, but I’m sure there’ll be a bigger plot (plop?) here. Stay tuned.

I agree. There seemed to be unfinished business and secrets when Jax left the last time. He had a “look” on his face, and he just acquiesced to Nelle being there too easily. Wonder what he’s been up to since he left? He has the resources and contacts to find out more. Or maybe he already knew things about Nelle??? Anyway the Morgan story has been a showcase of great acting on the part of Carly, Sonny, Ava, Michael and Nelle. And even the Charlotte story has finally given Maxie a chance to show her stuff, especially in scenes with… Read more »

Everything you said, Rose. I can’t add anything to your concise and complete account. I think Jax knows Nelle….and knows her well. How? Maybe he was the one who ‘bought’ her kidney? Obviously, there’s a history between them. Good, bad or a conspiracy? As far as the actors/ actresses—-superlative work by them all. And, yes, I loved Maxie’s spunk. So feisty, LOL. can’t kick her around. My son was so upset to see her being thrown around, as he has a crush on Maxie ( he’s seven, lol).

I wish they would throw us for a loop and reveal that she’s AJ’s daughter out for revenge. As it stands, I’m still betting that she turns out to be Carly’s daughter.

I think she’s Carly’s daughter too but I love the idea of her being AJ’s! As it stands now though looks to me like she’s trying to seduce Sonny…much as Carly did to her mothers’s ( Bobby) husband Tony.

What a great idea, Jason. Nelle and Michael; AJ’s children. The more I think about it, the more I like it.

This is the right thing to do! In the past, GH would tell stories and important people in character lives would be absent when the story demanded they be there. In other words, at Morgans funeral, Jax should and will be there! Nelle is another story Jax disappeared from. I hope he stays long enough to at least explain how he knows her. Welcome back Ingo!

I wish they could keep Jax around long term, he’s such a great character and the show is in need of more leading men than just Sonny, Jason and Julian. The newbies aren’t cutting it – Nathan, Andre, Curtis and Griffin aren’t exactly leading men material. Plus, Jax has a long history with the show and chemistry with many leading ladies. And Ingo Rademacher is such a natural performer, he immediately draws you in. I’m still hoping Nelle turns out to be the daughter of Jax and Nina. The writers are so determined to give Nina a child, and this… Read more »

Hmmmm, Patrick. Curtis is H O T !!!! From the beginning I found such a steamy, spicy and scalding current flowing between him and Nina. Valerie does not have that erotically, titillating substance to sustain Curtis for too long….didn’t work with Dante….short stint; and, it won’t last with Curtis….she just does not possess the IT-sultry facor. If I’m wrong, I’ll…I’ll…I don’t know what I’ll do…LOL. Hayden is veeeery sexy….but, I don’t see her and Curtis going anywhere ‘exotic’. As far as Nelle and Michael. You are right, in my opinion.

I think Carly/Laura can stand on her own. She is one of the most expressive thespians on soaps ( other than Maura West, that is, LOL).
Laura has the power to communicate heart-rending emotions from the most icy person….she’s that good. Her piteous rendering of the grieving mother was too much for me to bear—I had to FF. Her scenes reached deeply, within my being that much!!!!

jax is needed full time, w/ all the drama of morgans death, i would think jax would not want his daughter anywhere near sonny, plus add into the mix his ex carly and bff Alexis, theres enough drama there to keep jax around for a while.

Much like Kimberly McCullough, Ingo is another one I’m always glad to see whenever he comes back. Like others, I wish he could be on more often, but I’m glad to take whatever I can get. I’d rather he drop it every now and then as opposed to not seeing Jax at all.

I think Nelle could be Carly’s biological father, John Durant’s daughter, making her Carly’s half sister. When he got killed in 2006, Nelle would have been probably 12 or 13. Maybe she got put in foster care and adopted out. Perhaps, Jax discovered Carly’s Dad had another daughter and paid Nelle’s adoptive parents a large sum of money for her kidney. Nelle has made comments that she admires Carly for making it to the top and she also keeps looking at their large family. That would be something an orphaned child would long for. Just a thought.

You have better ideas than the writers! The whole Charlotte paternity thing was a HUGE bust. But, this sounds good. Much better than Nelle being Carly’s daughter. Like Carly wouldn’t remember having a child the same age as Morgan! And, if she did, that meant Morgan tried to make out with his half-sister. GROSS!

Celia
Guest

Hi, Kansas,
Please don’t laugh if I am off, here. I am not familiar with Carly’s story as I should be…..I have only been watching for a couple of years.
I know absolutely nothing of Carly and Sonny snd their child, Morgan, together.
I like what many fans are saying regarding Nelle and her ‘origin’; but, is it possible that Nelle was replaced by Morgan, at birth?
Ho, the possibilities!!! All these ideas are swirling in my brain. LOL. I’ll stop now, while I’m ahead.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

Still, if Carly and Nelle being sisters would mean Morgan kissed his aunt. That’s equally as gross, but he didn’t know that at the time. And Nelle stopped it from progressing, maybe because she knows they are related in some way?

Jimmy
Guest

I haven’t heard this idea before but I love it! It explains why she is a match for Josslyn, it explains her interest in Carly, but it also closes the door on a possible Michael/Nelle pairing, which I am intrigued by. Another interesting idea I’ve heard is Nelle being AJ’s daughter, and seeking revenge on the people who hurt him. I think that has possibilities too, but it would work better if somehow AJ was alive and they were working together. It would be a cool way to reintroduce him into the canvas and right a wrong that Ron C… Read more »

Hey, Jimmy ( not Jimh? LOL), I can’t tell if you are referring to me about the ‘novel idea’, LOL. If you are? Thank you. It is a soap, afterall….so, replacing Nelle with Morgan is plausible. He doesn’t look like anybody. And, although it is a soap, genetically, Morgan does not have a fraction of Sonny’s ‘look’. Nelle, at least, looks familiar…..falls more in the genetic pool. But, I am, once more, stretching, LOL. I don’t want to erase Morgan’s memory. I think it would intrinsically essential when/if Morgan comes back and a story evolves around this very subject.

one. that’s a beautiful thought… as you said… in all likelihood .. an orphan want(s)

yet will exact , revenge?

a mixed up child ? would explain a lot … yet give Carly a lot from which to work

which would help in explaining … Nelle action (s)

dang… there are a lot of possibilities swirling.. this is going to play out

for me selfishly… I hope it’s the “all about Eve ” angle… and she and Sonny, against his better judgment .. beds… Nelle.. and it’s all crosses to bear… for struggling Sonny and Carly.

GH might be turning Nell into an old school Carly type character. Would not come as a surprise to me if Nell has sex with Sonny. Nell is too goody goody two shoes. I am basing this on previous conversations of Carly”s past

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
