Ingo Rademacher Returns As GH’s Jax Beginning In May

Things will get more interesting in the lives of Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Carly (Laura Wright), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and many others on the GH canvas with the arrival back in Port Charles of Jasper Jacks.  That’s because as previously announced, Ingo Rademacher is headed back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise his signature role.

Circle May 7th for when you will see Jax back in action.  According to EW.com. “He’s back to see his daughter Josslyn and ex-wife Carly”   Jax will also share scenes with Steve Burton (Jason) and of course Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Looks like Jax may be back to help out Josslyn in her time of need as her boyfriend Oscar’s (Garren Stitt) final days seem to be drawing near, or does something else also bring his attention back to Port Charles?

It’s been a bit since Ingo played Jax on GH having last appeared on the soap in April of 2017.  Ingo eventually landed the role as the recast Thorne Forrester on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, a part he played till December of 2018.

Back in March, the actor originally from down under shared on his Instagram account: “Won’t be long now.  Just had my fitting. All new look for Jax. Start shooting next week. No air date yet. Stay tuned. Can’t wait!”

So, excited for some Jax on GH? What do you think will bring him back? What do you think will keep him in town? Comment below.

I always liked Jax I thought he was a breath of fresh air but still will not bring me back still the Sonny shiw

Goody !
I luv change-up, it keeps things rolling fresh.

I’m used to high octane dilemmas and challenges so anything that will bring something new my way is appreciated.
I can only hope Jax will be bringing some dark excitement with him..

If Jax is in town, can Jerry be too far behind? Seems like they usually show up around the same time, in recent years.

Sebastian Roche was busy for a while being a vampire, poisoning Hitler, and other fun things like that, but I don’t think he’s got any prime time gigs at the moment, so hopefully both of the Jacks brothers will stick around for the summer storylines?

Ingo should be on full time contract instead of Howarth and Easton (Frank’s OLTL pets) but Jax will only be back for one month like all core GH vets. Jax is needed. Franco and Finn are worthless. Liz and Anna are being wasted on Franco and Finn. Both are being misused to create a place for these two dud characters.

^^^^^ “… Franco and Finn are worthless ”

two pieces of good for nothing

each of them have been given the yellow brick road to .. daresay I… STARdumb

I have never seen a show give opportunity to so few who would have been canned / fired / let go LONG AGO

Michael Easton :

Role from: March 13, 2012 to March 20, 2013 his claim to fame as McBain.
Role from: May 13, 2013 to August 5, 2015 Dr. Silas Clay
Role from March 21, 2016 to present Dr. Finn

THAT IS 6 FULL Years to have solidified anything !!!! zip zilch nada… he’s especially obvious with Finola Hughes. they look more like much younger brother AND sister. COME On Shelly AND Chris… how staid unimportant and boring this pairing

Roger Howarth :

May 2013 : Franco… Yawn… Frank / Shelly / Chris are idolizing Roger Howarth, to no end. he’s a stifling bore… his histrionics with facial tick AND childlike demeanor… WITH Abstract intent… OKAY Roger. to this day… he still has no connect with any one in the canvas… just like Finn. no one on the cast seeks either of them out. unless its for a miracle cure AND or a substantial donation from Franco to either the city of or general hospital. otherwise these two are ho hum bores.

just not worth mentioning every reason under the sun how much Finola Hughes and Rebecca Herbst are continually CARRYING both Michael and Roger.

very much like Sonny AND Carly… just do not deserve all the airtime . Frank Valentini is killing this show

Hi Patrick, how yah doing?
OK-
We’ll have fisticuffs round LOL
I luv Franco and Finn.. Manly Franco.

Anna is Kook.. she has been suntable for a while now..
If she were in my platoon I’d send her to the infirmary for a mental work up for discharge.

And there is no other more Bland and boring than Elizebeth total wallpaper.

Hey!
if I were writing I’d bring the original Franco back/grow his tumor back, for sure.
And- I’d bring back Silas, a mystery as to/which he really is. ..

SuOOO
I agree with just about all of your comments. I love Franco, and I loved Silas. He was hot and spicy, whereas Finn is just nice, somewhat boring and Anna makes him even worse. I have to disagree with what you said about Liz. There is someone else that fits your description of her. Laura! She is nice but that’s all. Maybe Kevin will really fall for Ava, and Laura and Finn can get together, two peas in a boring pod, right?

hi Violet..
Imagine how exciting and intriguing it would be if all the goody-goody boring guys became gray and a delightful nasty!
I love a bad boy LOL
Franco/Roger plays a bad boy with zest and he loves playing the intriguing bad boy.. GH turned the once vibrant Franco into a powder puff.

And Finn needs to do a 180 and go back to being Silas!

GH has horrible couples, they are all stale, blahhh and dull..
not one, not one couple has an ounce of worth.

Don’t break up Carly and Sonny. They are last good couple from the last good era of GH. Jax should be brought back for good and paired romantically with Ava.

Jax’s appearance is necessary for Josslyn’s sake, Carly’s character was so much more tolerable in relation to Jax.
He kept her real… Their relationship was good when she wasn’t pinning over U know who!! Never understood her
blind devotion to Sonny..
Jax owes Sonny for keeping him out of the country for so long, & not in a good way..

Violet Lemm

I agree with you. I like Jax, but with Ava? I never thought about them as a pair. He always had the hots for Brenda too, and yes, Carly has this blind devotion to St.Benard, whose bite scares everyone in PC.

Fanny

Violet
Ava is too much for any man long term…bright, beautiful, independent, majorly insecure, manipulative, cunning, devious and ALL ABOUT AVA, ALL THE TIME… Wouldn’t it be a cruel twist of fate… if Kevin & Ava fell for one another during their sting Op to catch Ryan. Where’s that going to leave Laura??? Shouldn’t she be getting a mayor’s office soon???So we can see her working from behind a desk, instead of meandering around town aimlessly.
As for Sonny & Carly’s future we’re probably in for more of the same… boring, repetitive dialogue.
If Jax is here to stay.. and that’s a BIG
if, I hope they do his character justice.

There is one bright spot in the Corinthos house. Their new kitchen! So sick of Sonny’s dark, dreary LR or whatever that room is supposed to be . So masculine. Would think once Carly moved in, they would have redecorated. I know this has nothing to do with SLs, just making an observation.

Fanny
Fanny

Violet,
I hear you and raise you one…regarding the “new kitchen”
Where they will no doubt converge
regularly, until it seems like the only
room in the house. The remaining rooms are dark and equally need to be updated, like you mentioned it would definitely benefit from a woman’s touch.

aria

is this a short visit? or is he back on contract? I hope its the ladder, we need Jax back on full time, Ingo deserves it as much as Steve Burton, so I hope he stays, and has someone w/ him, and he’s not panning for boring Carly.

He will play Ryan Chamberlain wearing a Jax mask-ok kiddidng -lol

If ReRon were still writing this show, that is exactly what would happen!

I can’t blame Ingo for taking a job that’s offered to him, but it can’t be very satisfying to have Jax be shuffled in and out of town and relegated to being Sonny’s punching bag–because as we all know, Sonny Must Never Lose or Be Allowed to Suffer Any Lasting Consequences; that’s on the law books in Port Charles. I always liked Jax, and if his relationships (particularly with Sonny) were allowed to evolve at all, it might be good to have him around again. But I know that won’t be allowed to happen, and he’s just going to be Sonny’s whipping boy once more; Jax will attempt to bring rationality to some situation or make some perfectly reasonable request, and it will be written as Jax attempting to destroy Sonny’s world because Sonny isn’t getting exactly what he wants, exactly when and how he wants it–Sonny Good, Jax Bad. It’s boring as heck.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Photo: ABC

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Oscar’s Memorial Brings With It Remembrances By Those Who Loved Him

On Monday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) summoned family, friends, and loved ones to honor Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt), since he just past away due to his battle with brain cancer.  Oscar had his own way he wanted everyone to mourn his death and Ned and Olivia carried out his wishes.

When everyone gathers together, Ned and Olivia announce that Oscar wanted this to be a celebration.  After everyone arrives they sit picnic-style and some get up to speak to remember the amazing young man that Oscar was.  It turns out to be Michael (Chad Duell) who starts the tribute by saying that Oscar was brave to date his intimidating sister.  Next, Cameron (William Lipton) touches on his journey to friendship with Oscar.  Joss (Eden McCoy) finds the courage to go next and remembers how she had a crush on Oscar and how he wasn’t easy to talk to but how she was intrigued because he was mysterious. She then tells show she eventually fell in love with Oscar, and how she will never forget him.  When Drew (Billy Miller) gets up next, he breaks everyone’s heart by stating that he will be eternally grateful to have known his son and will always carry him in his heart.

Next, Ned asks everyone to follow him to the meadow.  Once there, Ned and Olivia hand out seeds to the attendees.  Then, Ned and Olivia reveal a plaque dedicated to Oscar, as everyone throw up seeds that land in the grass for it to grow.

Finally, Kim (Tamara Braun) speaks. She talks about how she raised Oscar on her own, and how after she learned he was sick, she brought him to Port Charles so he could meet his true family.  And with the analogy of the seeds, she says it helped Oscar blossom and how it enriched his young life.  In a heartbreaking moment, she thanks Drew for giving her son courage and being his dad when he needed it, and to Joss for being her son’s first love.  Kim hopes that Joss will come back to the meadow often and think of him.  They share an emotional hug.

Later, after Drew thanks Ned and Olivia for putting this all together for his son, Sam (Kelly Monaco) finds him and tells him he was a great father … and is a great father.  He wants to make sure that Scout knows he loves her.

Back at the meadow, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds Kim in tears alone at Oscar’s plaque. He tells her he understands the deep pain and void she is going through, but she has to hold on to how Oscar touched so many lives.   Once Sonny leaves, Kim in tears looks up to the sky and says she’ll always love her baby boy.

The episode featured touching performances by Tamara Braun, Billy Miller, Eden McCoy, and William Lipton, who all carried the Oscar dying storyline so beautifully along with Garren Sttit.  Additional kudos go to Lisa LoCicero and Wally Kurth, who as Olivia and Ned, kept Oscar’s memorial moving forward, and were also emotional throughout.

So, what did you think of the episode and the performances? Are you sad Oscar is gone?  Comment below.
