GH fans were hoping that Ingo Rademacher’s return to the ABC daytime drama series would be a little longer, but news today from the fan favorite himself via his Instagram account, revealed he wrapped his return and is headed back to his home in Hawaii and to appear on the hit CBS series, Hawaii-Five-O.

Next week on the Monday August 1st episode of General Hospital, Jax will be on action on-screen as he comes into the Josslyn kidney donor storyline.  Over the last week, Ingo has been posting photos and videos from the set on his social media accounts, especially with his longtime cast mates, Laura Wright (Carly) and Maurice Benard (Sonny).

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Rademacher previews: “Carly has made this whole thing public. and Jax wants to keep a lid on it for many reasons.  One is that if something comes out that is bad news for Josslyn, he wants to protect her, and the other is that he knows Carly too well! He doesn’t believe she will give up the search after one conversation with their daughter.”

So, sad to hear Ingo is done at GH?  Excited to see though, on-screen starting next week?  How will Jax impact the Josslyn kidney donor storyline? Comment below!

i hear he loves living in hawaii, so hard for him to return full time if he doesn’t want to give that up, so i’m happy if we get him when he’s able to do it, its sure better then nothing. i just wish the character wasn’t tie to Carly, how next time he comes back he will inter act with more characters, although maybe he will in this run who knows. He’s so hot though, i can’t wait to see him onscreen.

Did I miss it? LOL!

The Josslyn donor story is a total fail..
It is empty, simply empty. I have not even been interested the BLAH ..
But— I am really looking forward to seeing Ingo/Jax !!!!
No matter how sloppy lame he will be written, I really am looking forward to his scenes!

A total fail is right, but YES we get to see Ingo/jax..This dude always has great screen presence regardless of the poor writing given his way.

Back in the day, I though he would have made a good recast of OO7, adjusting his accent to British.

Always though Laura’s Carly was best with him chemistry wise!

Goes right along with the failure of revealing what happened with little jakes time away with Helena. Why bother with that weird book Helena gave Elizabeth, and they brought in Kevin to help with Laura and Spenser but no one hypnotized jake to see what he remembers… just odd that that night he “died” and Jos got her mysterious kidney was the same and they choose the boring half of the story to delve into.

YAWN

it really would have amped up the story… had the “last” Josslyn been a part of this

Hannah Nordberg… I miss you, bunches and bunches

Carly needs all the help she can

Agreed, Patrick! I really miss Hannah Nordberg’s “bad seed vibe” take on Joss! That girl was too much fun!

Yes Patrick. I miss “going as CORN for Halloween again this year”

I agree! Boring! Who cares! The Nathan/claudette crap is stupid too. Andre & Jordan are boring and mismatched! What us working is Laura & Kevin!

They didn’t ever give Jordan and Andre a chance…they give Jordan much more screen time with Curtis who I think she’s REALlY into, which is awkward because he’s seeing her employee/friend Valerie…made all the more confusing because there’s always this undercurrent between
Curtis and Nina…and Curtis with Hayden (which they suddenly dropped). Curtis is the “man around town”…for a new guy he’s already been involved on some level with four ladies…

I think Andre and Jordan’s relationship was to set up a chemistry…push/pull between him and Anna.

Nathan and Claudette could get interesting once Nathan has possible renewed feelings for her…then Griffin finds out she’s in town, etc. I’m giving it a chance.

Making Griffin a priest does nothing for me other than show his inner turmoil. He should have been a Jewish doctor…his mom could have been Jewish and surprisingly there are no Jewish doctors working in the hospital.. Strange….Could have been a good guy but with a bit of a more dynanmic/wild streak like Patrick when he first arrived. As with above, I”m hoping Griffin will be fleshed out more. He’s gorgeous but a tad too mellow….

I think Jordan is too defensive with Andre. She always has to put up her dukes with him which doesnt come off very well. The elusive woman is ok to play but Jordan is just so exhausting! Now she probably wants Curtis because Valerie wants him. Breaking the friendship code. I think Andre & Anna have more chemistry but not sure if he’s enough for her to move past Duke.

I hate the ex returns to town story with Claudette. It’s more believable with Spinelli since we’re invested in him as a character. Also, as cute as Ryan is, he just cant make this story come alive. Griffin is also SO dull! Hope he’s the hospital killer! Happy that KS is back!!!

GH has too many stories that arent working…. Nina the dlut, Cassadine stupidity, MORGAN again! Make it stop.

What if Ava, somehow unaware, is the donor??? …that would shock Carly and Sonny…i miss when this show was set in Port Charles…why did they have to change it to Sonnyville-lol

Or maybe Franco was a donor… and he gets along with jake because they share kidneys. Te he he

I think Ava being the donor sounds too much like One Life to Live when Todd got Alex Olanov as a donor for Star… but they are similar. Both blonde, both mob involved. 🙂

Im ok with the short visit…just never was a Jax fan-character a bit overrated imho!!!

Ditto! And double ditto!!

Triple ditto. Other than his good looks, I don’t get it. A pretty face can only take you so far! Uh-hum Nathan & Griffin! Dull.

I never thought Ingo would stick around. With his home in Hawaii, that’s pretty hard to do.
Maybe GH can come up with short arcs for Jax a little more often though.
I’m glad he’s continuing to do guest appearances on Hawaii Five-O.

Or how about Hawaii on location shots… remember those scenes GH had for puerto rico with Luke, Sonny & Brenda? They used that scene of jumping in the boat as part of the opening montage.

I don’t think that’s in their budget these days…

He probably wanted to stay longer but after reading the scripts, SURFS UP, I’m out of here!

:):)

your comment gave me a good chuckle ! Thanks

Once again you are spot on Geeze you are getting this wonderful sarcasm down pat you are almost as good at it as I am! Kudos once again!!!

I have to agree the writing is a bore on GH these days. What bores me: The donor story, Cassadine Island, Kristina’s sex life, Claudette, and Julian. Julian is creeping me out. So glad he is behind bars. I think they should trim the cast. I would have Julian and Ava in prison for many years to come. I love the actors, but their stories are done. I am not missing Olivia. She and Lucas were great confronting Julian.

The only story keeping my interest is the mention of Jeff Webber. The likelihood that Elizabeth and Hayden/Rachel are sisters could be interesting. Does Heather have control of the Raymond Berlin Ponzi scam millions? Will Jeff Webber be making an appearance? RDA that is.

I think Berlin paid Heather off to keep quite about the ponzi scheme AND about ElizAbeth and Haydens connection.

So do you think its like the parent trap where two (mrs berlin and rick webber) had an affair and each took a child. Or do you think it was another baby switch decades ago? Or maybe Elizabeth was adopted, and is really a berlin child given up?

So many choices!

Just thinking, elizabeth could be a result of mr berlin affair with her mother.

His life looks pretty good (via socia medis pics) in Hawaii…and I doubt he’d want to leave his wife and young kids for more than a short trip…so I never expected him to stick around too long. Hopefully his scenes will add some nice drama to this storyline.

Happy to see him AND Jax…not so thrilled to see “them” go but as Aria said it’s known he lives in Hawaii and loves it there. I do agree it’d be great if they could have him pop in more often!

If he is just about to appear on screen and has already finished taping in real life, how long will Jax be on GH?

With everything else going on, the boring stories, starting and dropping the stories, having too many stories, having too many new characters, having long-time actors off screen for a myriad of reasons for too long, I’m exhausted. That doesn’t translate into must-see TV for me.

I’ve not seen much of Jax on GH since I started watching so I don’t have a real investment in the character. However, if you’re bringing in someone like that, that I’ve read had a big following, then I hope it is worth it for the long-time fans.

Totally agree! When I’m multi-tasking while watching the GH there is a real problem! I was so busy not paying attention, I looked up to see that Kirsten was Maxie today!! That was a hilight; too bad the story blows!

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.
