Jackie Zeman Set To Return To General Hospital! Why Do You Think Bobbie Will Be Back in Port Charles?

Fantastic news this past week for long time General Hospital fans.  ABC confirmed that fan favorite Jacklyn Zeman is on her way back to GH to reprise the role of Bobbie Spencer.  Viewers last saw Bobbie when she appeared on episodes surrounding the Nurses Ball in April of this year.

On Friday, Zeman tweeted: “Just received my scripts 4 Bobbie’s return to #GH. Riveting!!! @valentinifrank @carlivatiron Thank you, Thank you. Am excited, very happy.”

So what could be bringing Bobbie back into the fold in Port Charles?  For starters, we think it has to be to do with the fact that the Julian Jerome (William deVry) story is about to explode.  And remember, Bobbie is the adopted mother of Lucas Jones who is the bio-son of Julian Jerome and Cheryl Stansbury!   Is Lucas not far behind?  Lucas was recently contacted by Carly on behalf of Alexis Davis to get DNA evidence that he and Sam Morgan share the same biological father!

Fans have also been hoping another gay character might be on the canvas soon, and after all, Lucas is a doctor!  Or, are we completely off base …  and there is another reason Bobbie is back?  What are your thoughts on it? Whatever the case, its always great to welcome back Zeman!  Comment below!

Hopefully she’s ushering Luke off the canvas.

What’s wrong with Luke? I still like him on Gh. And after all Luke and Bobbie are brother and sister and will want to see it other..

No, Luke is a very important character on GH, Barbara Jean isn’t ushering him off anywhere, he stays in PORT CHARLES.

I hate luke spencer. i hope they kill him off the show soon.

Luke Spencer is an iconic soap opera character, and Tony Geary isn’t going anywhere.

That’s the best reason you could come up with? LOL

great to see Jacke Zieman back, just sad to see that actors need to go the rought of plastic surgery, to the point that they don’t look authentic or real, I’m not opposed to tweeking things, but when too much is done….sorry you just look like your trying to recapture something that no one can, without looking like I don’t know what, but just not natural…..cuz the aging process is a natural thing, unfortunutly not in hollywood…. to bad for them, like I said i’m not a prude when it comes to making ones self look better, ie;refressed, but sadly they go too far 🙁

Jackie. zeman is back baby. i hope they sign her to a contract. I missed bobbie spencer so much. now get rid of franco. and aj. we don’t need them. they put me to sleep.

Jp

I agree. Keep Jackie zeman around at least on a recurring basis. Gh as too many characters. But Ron n frank know how to integrate storyline n characters like no other.

Sarah

I agree they need to get rid of Franco and aj!!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

totally disagree Lorenzo. Love Roger…and his take on Franco…while in my opinion written like Todd (OLTL) with just a name change works for me. As for Sean Kanan’s AJ…love him! Waited a long “soap” time for AJ to get some respect and love. So glad they’ve developed a relationship between him and Michael and I’m hoping they aren’t firing Kanan or discontinuing the AJ storyline. I’ve missed him!

SZima
SZima

I agree that Franco can go, and the sooner the better!
However, I really want AJ, who is a long-time legacy character, to stick around. I’m kinda worried though since it’s been weeks since AJ’s story has been dropped.

Engrady Pind
Engrady Pind

Same here. Franco is not needed at all one the show, even if he were totally redeemed and found to be Heather’s son. AJ on the other hand is a legacy character and welcome on the show. I just wish AJ’s reappearance didn’t usher in the same ole crap with Sonny and everyone treating AJ as though he were incapable of growth and change.

JEFF

I don’t understand the Tony Geary bashing lately? The man has won 7 EMMYS and can act his way around anyone on the show!! Besides he has great chemistry with Jane Elliot. They should get a romance storyline; not Genie Francis and him! That ship has sailed folks, get over it!!

Becky
Becky

Couldn’t agree more Jeff. Love Luke, especially whenever he’s with Tracy. The return of Laura was a real snooze; hoping they’ll find something that works for her if/when she returns. Luke and Tracy forever! Wish that had found a different way to bring back Roger Howarth.

KatieK
KatieK

Agreed 100% percent!!

Why do you keep knocking Luke.. He oviously got those emmy’s because he earned it. I think he has done a good acting job on GH for years.

lol some people are unhappy people and like to bash poor Luke just to be pissy … lol

LOVE Tony Geary and Luke!!! Iconic character, awesome actor!! Wish he was around more but I realize Tony goes off to Amsterdam a lot. Still, he needs to be there front & center!!

SUSAN M.
SUSAN M.

I agree..

Elizabeth

Tony has no romantic chemistry with Jane no matter how much he enjoys working with her. Yes they are funny in their little pranks, but no more so than Tony has been many, many times in scenes with Genie. Luke and Tracy haven’t done one thing that wasn’t done earlier by Luke and Laura, and as well if not better. They need to get both Genie and Tony back. Not saying they need to be reunited but they both need to be on this show. They’re the reason the show has even made it this long.

Elizabeth, how right you are!

Pat

I love Luke, please leave him alone. As for Bobbie, glad she’s back but she does seem to over act sometimes and that plastic surgery she had , well not so good. Loved our old Bobbie.

Shay
Shay

Well, Pat, we certainly agree on JZ’s shortcomings….I find her very hard to watch for the reasons you listed!!! She falls into the category of those who belong in one-and-done episodes, in that would be more than enough to satisfy me….of course, Scotty, Lucy, and Doc are also in that group, and yet they remain lurking about! Then again, I was never an original Bobbie fan, and do not miss her presence. She is one of those “oldies” whose occasional visits definitely do not gladden my heart….there are still so many other vets who have yet to make a “50th Anniversary” appearance, or those that did that had far TOO brief ones…. mainly Frisco and Noah! As for other legacy characters, how about Jeff Webber, Celia Q., Jimmy Lee Holt, Blackie, Victor Cassadine, Stefan, Laura T., Claudia, Jade, Yank, etc. There’s quite an endless list from which to choose.

Erick
Erick

Same with Monica… Leslie Charleson went to the plastic surgery well with her face maybe three too many times….

KatieK
KatieK

So glad Bobbie is back! Just hope she actually sticks around. Id love to see her be there for Morgan. I wish they would bring Grandpa Mike back for Morgan as well. I also wish people would leave AG alone. Just cause Gossip sites are saying he makes so much money & does not want a pay cut, does NOT make it true. Just look at all the vet actors leaving GH lately, that speaks volumes.

Erick
Erick

Agree about “Grandpa Mike,” unfortunately they’d have to recast since Ron Hale retired….

aria

katie your totally right, ever since this rumor about pay cut on Anthony geary came out its like all the hate started its so unfair. no one knows the truth and its not right that he’s being attacked.

k/kay
k/kay

The rumor was just that a rumor TG will leave when he wants to as far as he and Genie my only problem with him has been disrespect in interviews I agree that the chemistry is gone and maybe Genie’s time has come and gone she has been off the canvas for a long time. Concerning he and Jane Elliott when you want to address the elephant in the room then go for it personally I could care less about either character I think the show does fine without either of them. They have simply been fillers or as I say guest appearances over the years.

A possible Bobbie and Scott pairing, a return of Lucas Jones who will be in a love triangle with Felix and Brad, and involvement with the Jeromes, especially Julian, Lucas’s daddy…

Tori

I am glad to see Bobbie is back and everyone knows Carly need some serious guidance considering she is still attracted to dangerous men. I also think she will be there to protect Lucas from the Jerome family because enough people know who they are now so the secret is coming out soon. I heard a rumour that they have an actor whose name would be familiar to daytime audience. If the rumour is true there is no one I can think of that fit the role, people on other forums are hoping it’s Van but I do not think he would step in to another high profile gay role anytime soon. I personally would go with a newcomer but by now they must have an actor, I do not understand the long wait to send a press release now that they have Bobbie back.

I hope tony geary gets fired on general hospital. he is getting old and looks old now. bring back alan quartermaine from the dead. that would be wonderful. tony geary had his spotlight. now we need more lucy coe robert scorpio anna devane and monica.

rebecca1
rebecca1

You don’t fire people because they’re getting old or “look old.” Jeez! First off…it’s just an insensitive, shallow thing to say. But on another note, some of the older actors are the ones who have been on our shows forever and sadly pass are much admired like the actors who played Edward and Lila Quatermaine. And fyi, “Alan Quatermaine” is almost ten years older than Luke/Tony Geary. And he looks it too…but still love him!

I agree with you maria. luke spencer needs to go now.

Love me some Bobbie Spencer! Would love to see her on canvas full time… with son Lucas. So sure it will happen. Makes sense if we are reviving Jeromes and giving them a prominent place on the storyboard. (Even though I am no fan of mob plots!)

And everyone stop the Luke Spencer bashing. GH needs that core actor and character.

Why is everyone downing Luke????? He is a very important part of GH, and how many Emmys has he won, NO LUKE has to stay, I for one will miss him terribly if he goes on one of his adventures and doesn’t come back.

dmr

I love Luke most when he is sharing scenes with Tracy, not when he is drunk or sick from poisoning. I love Luke as a legacy, comedic character. Tony Geary is amazing.

Patrick

i’ll billboard once again.

bringing back Bobbi…. will lighten the load… uplifting our hearts of ole.

she would steer with ‘so’ many on the canvas…

with luke
with carly
with Scotty
with all the talent mac/felicia/anna/robert/duke/lucy/kevin
WITH General Hospital

AND, if her son comes back…. YAY! MORE Brad… and why not Felix

as for Jackie Zeaman… The world who knows her… has neve abandoned her… and she owns a part of our Serial

Writers…. give her witty snappy dialogue… upfront no holds barred script for the other cast to support… and not give her those long camera shots…

her voice alone… her presence… god love her… she deserves a shot and time on

notwithstanding…. this would be a good time… for something to go wrong with Carly… she needs something very personal to catapult the Carly of ole as well…. screaming about her “lackluster” sons… (Morgan is more on than offput by Michael)… and her character always winning the menfolk….

give her an internal scare – medically – speaking… for these two to renew their presence

Hello Jackie Zemon… we’re home with you

Am I the only one that remembers that Julian Jerome was really not supposed to be Lucas’s father – that it was originally supposed to be Robert Scorpio? TPTB at the time were building up to a big reveal, and then completely dropped the story, saying instead that it was Julian. This would have been fine, except that Cheryl was not involved with Julian at all at the time.

Tori
Tori

I do not remember but if it comes up most likely they will say Cheryl may been with Julian once in secret because that is all it would take. I am guessing they will stick to Lucas being part of the Jerome bloodline because there is more drama from that story for the audience.

Edward

It was shown on screen with Cheryl and Julian,,,,,

Time for tony geary to retire. fire him or recast the role of luke

Barbara t loves One life to live

WHY, He has a major role in GH, Whether you like him or not he has a family in Port Charles and that is what is important family, Barbara Jean is coming back, He has LULU and LUCKY and ETHAN , And I like him with Tracy they are cute together the way they go back and forth with insults, NO Unless the rumors are true and he is pissed off about a pay cut, money changes everything, Luke has to STAY RIGHT WHERE HE IS .

SUSAN M.

Great to have Bobbie back. She always brings heart to the show. Lucas should have been robert’s all along. But now I don’t care. When they made the character gay it kind of ruined things. No offense meant and no need for gays to get all agitated and attack me. I don’t like many types of stories…I don’t like mob stories, I am not insulting mobsters. I don’t like rape stories. I don’t like gay stories. Just my preference. I am not intolerant or close minded lol I just don’t like gay stories on soaps, that’s all. Welcome back Jackie Z and Bobbie.

Hurray! Not sure who I love more- Jackie Zeman or Frank and Ron for bringing her back! Frank and Ron are the hottest show runners. They are so Hot- I hope they’re gay! -:)

Johnny

Of course they are gay! That’s why it is so easy for them to bring true accurate portrayals of gay men like Brad and Felix.

dmr

I just hope that we don’t see her as randomly as we do our other veterans: We see Scotty maybe once every couple of weeks, along with Lucy, Laura is off canvas, etc. As much as I love having the vets return, it’s sad when I forget that they have returned. Then all of the sudden they are on-screen as fillers on a Wednesday episode. (This past week with Scotty outside of Kelly’s, running into Heather. I loved their scenes; but, I forgot all about Scotty returning to Port Charles)! On another note, I would have loved to have seen Carlos or Derek end nuMorgan’s ridiculous ranting over the other village idiot Kiki. Michael, when did you get so boring to watch? UGH.

Engrady Pind

I watched Bobbi Spencer for years and found her entertaining. Then, once Carly came and destroyed the Jones’ marriage I have found Zeeman’s delivery of lines to be patronizing to the point of grating on the ears. Bobbi talks to other characters as though they were 2 year olds.

Johnny
Johnny

Probably because most of the people in her immediate orbit act like it. How would you talk to a daughter like Carly?? “Sweetie,..see…this is why we don’t sleep around…bad things happen when we are promiscuous…do you undersgabd?”. Lol. It is partially the writing and partially the poor woman’s face has been pulled and stretched tighter than a bongo drum. Her lips don’t even touch anymore…so delivery of lines can come off as over enunciation or over acting but its actually just her being valiant at being able to say the lines.

I’m not picking on her, but I saw her recently on an interview and she was almost unrecognizable ~ if she’s returning to General Hospital, I hope it’s not to have
any cosmetic procedures done. I am not faulting an actress (or anyone) for holding
onto youth as long as possible, but some of them start to get that real paralized frozen face look, as if they were stuck in a freezer for a month.

I was just watching Some Stefan and Bobbie scenes on YouTube last night. Boy I have to say that the chemistry was through the roof between them! Shame they broke them up just because they wanted to pair Stefan with Katherine. Best wishes Jackie. 🙂

Can anyone tell me when Genie Francis is returning?

k/kay

I would say no time soon! I would have liked a storyline for her but I guess we have decided to do the Scotty is Franco’ father bit. I am not shocked however poor Genie can’t catch a break when you have actors on the set that do not want her back. I think Bobbie’s whole reason for being back is to prop up the character of Carly who I am sooooo over!

Bring her back and give her something to work with–like dialogue that is not contrary to her well-established character.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

Breaking News

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
