Jane Elliot Returns to General Hospital This April

Courtesy/ABC

Although it was previously announced back in January (during ABC’s TCA Winter Press Tour) that Jane Elliot would be returning to General Hospital, the soap opera and Soap Opera Digest have confirmed that Jane’s first episode back will air next month on April 17th.

While Elliot won’t be a part of the Nurses’ Ball which airs the week of April 3rd, as part of the show’s 60th anniversary episodes, the Daytime Emmy-winning fan favorite will be back in action during the anniversary month and beyond.

As viewers know, Jane originally decided to retire back in 2017, and so Tracy was written off to join Luke Spencer in Europe.  Since that time, Elliot has come back to the show for a few appearances.

The last time we saw Tracy was at the beginning of 2022, when she came home to Port Charles to give the shocking and tragic news that Luke had been killed in a cable car crash.  Tracy eventually went back to Amsterdam, where they had been living, to settle his affairs following his death.

Will Tracy’s return help bring down Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) who is believed to be behind Luke’s death? Could Tracy learn Luke is really alive after all? Stay tuned.

So, excited that Jane Elliot’s return to GH is just around the corner? Comment below.

Always great to see Jane Elliot back on screen, in whatever scheme Tracy has gotten herself involved with this time.

I sincerely hope that this story is leading to the reveal that Luke isn’t really dead. You have to acknowledge the good and bad with the character of Luke Spencer over the years, but the bottom line is he was one of the most iconic characters in soap history. For him to die off screen like that never seemed like an appropriate way for the character to go out.

I agree with you, Dan. Completely.

Anthony
Geary retired from Soap & is living happily in Amsterdam Holland. He refuses to return to the set. He loved his care free lifestyle there. Given the $$ he earned & wisely invested ,why not live healthy & happily there. I love Holland & Belgium, life is much slower & simpler with all the modern conveniences

happy she’s back along w/ Emma samms,

Wow, do I miss Tracy. The once-dominant Quartermaines are barely a shadow anymore. The Corinthos clan just isn’t a proper replacement.

I’d like Tracy to come back and kick that squatter Carly out of her family mansion. She’s always there marching around like she owns the joint.

Oh Harry, Missy Carly thinks she’s entitled to anything she wants — men, revenge, “justified” lying. She still hates Brad for concealing Wiley’s parentage but has NO QUALMS about lying to Willow, Nina, and Drew about Willow’s maternal history. And her “marching around” (great description) is always so loud! Those shoes must have tiny weights in them.

I’d say Carly was justified in hating Brad. His deception in the Wiley clusterf**k hurt both her son Mikey and her brother Lucas. Not to mention aided & abetted the insane schemes of Psycho Nelle against her entire family. That’s a lot to forgive.

As far as Willow goes… she told Carly she didn’t really want to know who her birth mother was. Obviously Carly didn’t owe Nina a damn thing, although she probably should have been honest with Drew once he started investigating Willow’s parentage.

Yes; Carly DID owe Nina. Carly started this whole thing by not telling her that Nelle had been her daughter, and by default, was never going to tell her that Wiley was her grandson! He’s every bit Nina’s grandchild as Carly’s, but I guess taking Michael away from AJ, and raising Ava’s daughter as if she was her own, raising Avery to call her “mommy” wasn’t enough for Carly. She has Joss, Michael, Donna, Avery, Wiley, the new grandchild, and Nina’s daughter…and she thought nothing of letting Nina go through the rest of her life childless, never to know that Wiley was her grandchild. As is her M.O. Carly never apologized to Nina, just got on her high horse and wailed about what Nina did to her. And, then, instead of trying to make it right, she does it all over again except this time it’s worse; she goes behind Nina’s back, takes an illegal DNA test, and then continues to rant and rave about what Nina did to her as she once again keeps Nina’s child from her and an upcoming grandchild. Carly’s truly despicable.

Rebecca1,
My problem is I agree with what you say, can’ t stand Carly, but than why is it I can’t stand nosy, obnoxious Nina either?

Violet; hi.:) Don’t know. I like Nina; I don’t find her nosy or obnoxious. I feel empathy for her. She was in a coma half of her life, had both babies stolen, was conned to believe Sasha was her daughter, was betrayed by Jax when he kept the secret with Carly, her other child was kept by Harmony, Carly not only kept that from her but once again is a “mother figure” to another enemy’s child (Ava/Avery) and her daughter is dying. Has a hatred for her that is completely absurd and unwarranted, and once again Nina is for the most part childless, as if having her children stolen from her wasn’t enough. And yet she carries on, her affection for Donna is very touching. Nina’s always on the outside looking in, while Carly skates through her life. It’s cringe-worthy.

Do not care for busy body Nina.

The fact that Carly took such umbrage with Brad for concealing Wiley’s parentage when she’s done the same thing to Nina two times was a connection that slipped my mind. Thank you, Soaphound for pointing that out. And it becomes increasingly vexing that Carly never receives her comeuppance- never! Instead, this morally challenged creep is constantly elevated to heroine status. It’s just piss poor writing that yields zero viewer satisfaction. The writers fail to adhere to the basic story board arc when it comes to Carly. And yes, Carly walks hard like an aggressive clod hopper living on the apartment above you.

Harry,
Have not been able to like Brad from the very beginning of all his antics in the lab, helping Britt “steal” Dante and Lulu’s baby from egg to birth and everything else crooked and scheming in between. They brought back a new and improved Britt and Brad just rode in on her coattails.

Soaphound…I can hear the click, click, click of Carly’s heals.

Hey Harry! Oh; I so agree! The “squatter Carly.” LOL! That’s exactly how I feel. I can’t stand seeing her there. These writers and their fake Quartemaine family. Bring back AJ, Dillon, Skye, and her daughter who I believe was named Lila Rae??? More Ned, please. He’s barely on and is treated like a cow put out to pasture in-story. That’s not the Ned we know. And if they’re not going to tell us where Monica is, maybe they can at least have a family game night where they all play, “Where’ Monica?”

Tracy is not the owner of the mansion. Monica is !

Oh, Soaphound—love Jane—she’s got that “stay on your side of the line” thing going—don’t mess with her. Is she Scottish, by any chance? LOL.
Aside—I just wanted to kiss and hug little “Ace”—something or someone had caught his attention and happy side back there—Mommy, perhaps? I was chuckling right along with him. So cute!! Big boy at what, six weeks old?
BTW—the word for ‘ace’ in Italian is ” Asso”. Oh, Lordy Lord!!
A presto–

I hope Luke stays dead tbh. There was minimal good about him. He is no better than any other rapist. And he didn’t learn his lesson. In 2014 he was groping young women again. Kiki for one. Laura should be ashamed of herself for leaving one of her children with one rapist so she could get away without having to worry about her child, then marrying another. Luke was no better than Stavros.

I think you’re confusing Luke with Fluke. Yeah, physically they were the same person – or at least they were after ReRon backed away from the obvious “Bill Eckert is Fluke” plotline, because GH viewers (led by this Devil) figured it out months ahead of time – but, under the terms of conventional soap writing, you don’t hold a person responsible for what their imaginary friends in their head/alternate personalities have done.

So yeah, we all know what happened at the disco in 1979. But that had nothing to with what happened in 2014. Even when not in Fluke mode, Luke had his flaws, but he had about as much in common with Stavros as I do with the angel Gabriel.

Can’t wait!

Ladies. Hide your husbands…and Sons!!

I hope they bring Luke back, he has been missed.

Love Jane Elliott. One of the few outstanding actresses of our time

Love Tracy!! Much needed return!
Hope she stays a long while

I look forward to whenever Jane Elliot returns to GH. She is such an amazing actress & literally a fan favorite for getting into or causing trouble. But she is fiercely loyal about family & I think all fans love whenever Jane returns every year. God Bless her

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.

Many of Johnny’s former GH castmates took to social media in the last several hours with heartbreaking and touching words on the loss of Wactor. Here are just some below, and Michael Fairman TV will continue to update these remembrances as they are posted.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Maurice Benard (Sonny): “What can I say about something so senseless? Johnny was the sweetest guy coolest dude and just a great soul. This is beyond words you will be missed my friend.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description.

Lydia Look (Selina): “Johnny, I’m crying and will be for a bit. I knew you were talented when you simply just took your shirt off when the rest of us were trying to outdo each other with our skits. I also knew there & then that you were fine as wine 😻 I also saw how you’d let others take the spotlight whilst confident & loving in your own space. Most of all, I learnt what a magnificent human you were in our long car rides between fan events. I will cherish our chats. Thank you.”

The official General Hospital social media accounts on X and Instagram shared: “The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of Johnny Wactor’s untimely passing.
