Tracy Quartermaine is coming home for the holidays when Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Jane Elliot reprises her signature role on General Hospital.

According to the very latest Soap Opera Digest, look for Monica (Leslie Charleson) to summon Tracy back to Port Charles to deal with the trouble Tracy’s son, Ned (Wally Kurth) is finding himself in.

How will Tracy’s return effect what’s been going down with ELQ?  Stay tuned.

Elliot, was last seen on the show in 2019 during holiday time, after she had exited the series for her retirement back in 2017.  Jane began portraying the one and only Tracy back in 1978

During her last visit, Jane also participated in the GH version of A Christmas Carol, which was one of GH’s Emmy-nominated drama episodes in the running for the Outstanding Drama Series prize this past June.

So, excited to see Jane back on your screens very shortly? Comment below.

Hi Jimh–
I’m more than tired of seeing the heart necklace, 4 times a day..
It becomes like the Y&R Music Box story lol
Carly is now a Kook, and Nina lost her, wow, being with Jax.
I’m looking forward to Lulu and Julian death scenes.
0ooo and Donte being a robot nutcase is not entertaining.
Cyrus stuff is about all that’s holding my attention.

Always a good day when Jane is on the screen. Just wait until Tracy finds out she’s going to be a great granny.

Hope she’s home only for Thanksgiving and not because one of the Qs died in the bombing and that would only be Jason and Danny. I can’t believe Jason will be killed off nor hopefully his son.

luv tracy her dad emotionally scarred her that’s why her character endures the fight between good and evil… Nietzsche , Camu etc…

He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.

There are no facts, only interpretations.

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

I will be glad to see Tracy back, so she can get things straightened out, especially her son Ned, she didn’t think Michael was good being in control of ELQ, but he thought Ned would be able to handle things in his absence, even though it was the ones fault that sold their shares to Valentin, but some kind of way I think Tracy or Michael will get it back.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
