While Ingo Rademacher has already wrapped his visit back to Port Charles, viewers of the ABC soap opera will begin to see new episodes featuring the star tomorrow on the Monday, August 1st episode of the long-running daytime drama series.

In story, Jax return figures into the mystery of just who is Josslyn’s kidney donor, something that his ex-wife Carly (Laura Wright) has been trying to unravel.  Does Jax have the answers? Does he hold some clues? Can he direct Carly in the right direction, or will he try to block her from investigating the truth?  Obviously, if that is the case that would put Jax once again pitted against his long-time rival Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).  For Sonny has been helping Carly get to the bottom of it.

ABC released a short promo over the weekend to usher in the return of Ingo as Jasper Jacks,. You can watch it after the jump. Then weigh-in: Do you think Jax holds intel that will reveal the truth of Josslyn’s kidney donor … or … is he in the dark like everyone else seems to be? Comment below!

He’s so handsome !

Yes he is..

Would somebody tell me what is with all these good looking men with these awful haircuts? Or am I just out of touch I feel like half the men on daytime have a three year old cutting their hair. That being said I have always liked the character of Jax.

I guess if you are good looking you can do what you want! I remember David Beckham had some kind of Mohawk thing going on and looked like a goof BUT a handsome goof!

k/kay, please accept my profound thank you for saying it also. I’ve been complaining about this for ages. And it’s a cross-soap problem. These guys with great hair, like Ingo R., Billy Miller, Chad Duell, Casey Moss, all have these “practice day at the local cosmetology school ” chop jobs. What gives? I want hair I can fantasize about, not want to fix with a pair of shears! Anyway, thanks for the shout out, k/kay!

Oh, I hear you, Soaphound!!!! There’s nothing like a well-coiffed (and finely dressed!) man to grab my attention!!!! I cannot imagine not being able to run my fingers though a guy’s hair…..dealing with those cropped cuts are the equivalent to rubbing your face up against razor stubble….ugh! What can I say? I’ve always gone for the smooth and groomed “metrosexual” types who are as into beauty products as I am…even if they don’t always admit it without a bit of prodding! LOL. (You mentioned Robert Redford….yes! He was sheer perfection in “The Way We Were!” Or even the original Thorne and Ridge on the early days of B&B….I loved their respective styles! Soaps used to be the absolute best when it came to male eye candy! Now? Not so much for me…..I find that European tv shows—British, Scandinavian, French, Italian….—give me the fix I’m craving!!!!) Oh, aren’t we sooo bad!

Rose

I miss the blond locks Jax used to sport. But maybe with him living in Hawaii and water sports there, the shorter hair is just easier…if this is what you are talking about.

Shay
Shay

Me too, Rose!!! Have you ever noticed that when any formerly blond guy goes dark he somehow loses his looks??? There’s just something about that “golden boy” look that is soooo enticing! LOL….

Shay
Shay

Oh, yes, Rose…..I hear you about those hipster beards, not to mention, “manbuns,” pajama boy wardrobes…really anything that captures the current “Casual Friday” techie ethos that has been unleashed upon the public!!!! (And ditto for multiple tats and body piercings, too…..) I grew up in an age when the guys were just as, if not more often, fussy about their hair and attire than the girls….they certainly spent the time and money on clothes, and hair styling products, and it showed!!!! I’ll often be channel chasing and come upon a tv show or movie from the ’80’s or maybe even early pre-grunge ’90’s and I cannot get over how clean, well-dressed and presentable people looked….in comparison, today it often seems that half the population considers basic hygiene to be “optional!” As for “Nurse Amy II” she gives me the willies….there is definitely a sinister vibe radiating from beneath her “everywoman” exterior…..whether it’s the evil soul of a killer, I cannot be say, but surely something is amiss with her. From the beginning, I found her supposed presence as an “homage” to the late Shell Kepler’s character to be a bit of a backhanded compliment, since her Amy—whilst being a really intrusive, and often annoying, busybody—never truly meant harm to anyone…she simply couldn’t contain her overwhelming curiosity about others’ lives, usually to the point of distraction during her shifts at the “Nurses’ Station!”

Shay
Shay

Thank you, k/kay!!! The cropped hair look on men has been a real bugaboo of mine for a long, long awhile….both onscreen and in real life!!! Not only can I not stand it, but I just don’t get it, especially on young guys. It’s quite one thing when the oldsters think this type of tonsorial subterfuge camouflages the fact their hair is thinning—and by the way, it doesn’t!!!!!—- but for teenagers and other youthful males, I say, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, and enjoy it whilst you can!!!

Rose
Rose

Not that it applies here, but I think all the facial hair, especially bushy, longer beards, has gotten a little out of hand. There are exceptions when they are worn well and neat…like our “friend” Carlos/Joe?

Rose
Rose

Shay…P.S. They really have made Nurse Amy beyond irritating right from the beginning. I don’t remember the original Amy that well, but I don’t think she was ever such a mouthy, busybody.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Shay, you’re awesome! Absolutely! Let’s start a campaign to bring back one of nature’s wonders: great hair. Starting with GH’ERS Ingo, Billy, Chad, then let’s head over to DAYS. At least Y&R lets Greg R. & Joshua M leave the longer locks. Think back to our great male idols…didn’t many of them have great hair? Robert Redford, James Dean, Brad Pitt, Warren Beatty, today’s Jeremy Renner. There’s a pattern.

Celia
Celia

Agreed, Shay.
Worst hair: Morgan–GH; Jax–GH; Billy–Y&R.
Now, some men look luscious in cropped hair….ummm; say, Curtis?
Wasn’t there a name for that in the 40’s-50’s era? Brush cut? Or is this new trend the ‘army’ look?
But, personally, I like longer hair on guys…I don’t even mind shoulder-length.
The same comments have been posted on Y&R. I know that the 30’s revival ( on men’s styles) is en vogue, as we speak. Nick Newman (Y&R) presently sports such style. He’s another hottie.

Ahh, yes! Nurse Amy. I had actually googled the ‘original’ GH Amy. I think I saw her on a couple of THREE’S COMPANY reruns.
But, this girl’s personality is as achromatic as the color gray. What goes on in that mind of hers?
Rose called it right; nosy. But, is there a reason for her prying into every aspect of GH, including patients and staff? As Gran says; ‘What gives’? But, this meddling is going to give her away….if she is the killer.
Funny how she is always at the ready to throw suspicion elsewhere….away from her. At the same time, she is omnipresent.

Timmm

I would like Jax to date Kristina and watch the grease drip out of Sonny’s hair!

James R. Poissant
James R. Poissant

i think he knows a few things but he’ll fight to keep Carly from finding out so that this deepens the hatred Sonny and Jax have for each other. Gotta make this as juicy as possible because Ingo is back for a short amount of time I’m sure.

Celia
Celia

I think Jax knows exactly who the kidney donor is.
Let’s just hope Joss doesn’t end up in hospital…not safe there.
It’s Amy….the nurse from hell. She is everywhere, anytime, everytime. She’s the psycho.
Am I barking up the wrong tree?

James R. Poissant
James R. Poissant

Hahaha—it would be the best twist in a long time if the writers went there since she is supposed to be modeled after Amy Vining the ditzy nurse from the Luke and Laura heyday.

Shay
Shay

Nope, CeeCeeGirl…..I posited the same notion about that insufferable Nurse Amy….what’s her beef with GH???? It had better be a good explanation!!!!

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I!m starting to think it’s Amy too CeeCee. She’s a character no one cares about so it wouldn’t be a loss. I know you weren’t viewing when the original Amy Vining was on years ago, but she was a beloved little busybody nurse…Laura’s sister (though not biological). Whenever they showed the nurses station there was Amy, listening in and spreading the word, lol…but she was GH “family.”

When this Amy suddenly appeared it seems like the writers were trying to recreate that character in a similar way, complete with name. Given that she!s barely on, has no connections or interactions with anyone they either brought her on to throw us off the trail and think it was Dr. Maze, cause Elizabeth to mistrust Franco…or maybe they changed gears and made her the culprit when they realized they had nowhere to go with her.

Or, maybe we’re both wrong! 🙂 we shall see… (Loving Franco and Liz.)

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

Oh! Lol…just realized we’re talking about the kidney caper!!! So, actually, I don’t agree! I think Amy’s the hospital killer…but wait! (Free associating…) maybe she’s killing people and somehow they’re all on a kidney doner list…or in another scenario their kidneys are being removed on the autopsy table!

Though Jax wouldn’t be involved in that…he’s a “hero” not a villain in our GH world…

Celia
Celia

@Rebecca 1.
LOL. that’s what I meant. Joss better not end up in hospital for any kidney issue….Amy will do her in. I believe she’s the serial killer. I want to smack her!!

Soaphound
Soaphound

Celia, we need to rid this show of the problem known as Nurse Amy. Honestly, I’ve known horse flies that were less annoying! If she’s not the killer, let’s hope she becomes a victim. And the worst part is Miss Jordan will now pursue Franco with the same myopia she has for Jason. Maybe she can establish a rotating warrant — arrest Jason on the first week of the month, Franco the second, and on and on until Anna returns and kicks her snarky butt out of her job!

Shay
Shay

Hey, CeeCeeGirl! I do believe something is awry with Nurse Amy….it seems she should have another actual purpose to her presence than to just be annoying beyond distraction! Whilst I can definitely envision her sneaky demeanor as being indicative of a serial killer’s behavior, it never occurred to me that she might have something to do with the kidney storyline….hmmmmm???? Could there be a Jacks link to her, as in an illegitimate sister/daughter to Jerry or Jax???? That could have made her a compatible donor for Joss. (Then again, with her oddly psychotic-seeming tendencies, she could be yet another Heather Webber spawn! Just kidding…..I think! LOL…..) Whatever her connection to the GH canvas, it ain’t an upstanding one, that’s for sure! As for our discussion of men’s hairstyles, I agree with your take on liking some length, not to mention, effort required for whatever look they choose! (Definitely clean and well-kempt!) Since I watch a lot of period movies and tv shows, I see many different looks from various eras that appeal to me….it’s not any single cut, per se, but just a certain quality that’s both classic and meticulous! (I know you know what I’m saying!!!!!) However, what I simply cannot abide are those nasty buzzed to the scalp looks that scream militant—not military—-in my opinion. I’ve known enough guys from both the service and academies that have had that clean-cut, All-American, man in a uniform thing going….and what I’m speaking against ain’t that!!!!

Timmm
Timmm

BTW C, the original Amy used to act like Maxie when Maxie was younger. A good heart who always flubbed things up! Nurse Amy worked in the hospital and so did a young Maxie I believe as a candy striper? But anyway, their ears and mouth would often get them in trouble but they were never vicious. This new Amy is a viper! .

Ahh, luisa…. in my opinion Nina and Curtis would combust. I feel the electricity in the air when these two are close to each other.Two sexy beings. Imagine if they touch. Caramba!!
Valerie is too mousy….too inconsequential; too tamed for him. And, he is too much man for her.
Nina is so alluring and he is so sexy; so good-looking; sooo much man….he oozes with manly ‘musk’.
Curtis has striking facial features…his profile perfectly sculpted.

They have tried everybody opposite Stafford they all feel forced these days she is trying to hard chemistry just has to happen you can’t force it.

Soaphound

You’re on again, Celia. LOVE Nina & Curtis together. And if Franco can move on that quickly, he doesn’t deserve her. And Valerie? Let’s run her outta town on the same rail as Nurse Amy, Aaron, Jordan, T. J., Rachel, Parker, Andre, and toss in Julian (and his hairdo meant for a much younger man) while we’re…tossing.

Celia
Celia

@Soaphound.
I am so glad someone else sees the potential between Nina and Curtis, my friend.
I must say, though, Nina disappointed me somewhat, yesterday. I wonder why TPTB are going this way ?
Poor Nina must feel so dejected and rejected to attach herself to a man who pays her the slightest attention.
But, she can certainly turn it on….She tumbled way too low with Valentin, a complete stranger. Now, I have to worry about her getting an STD. LOL. Later.

Celia
Celia

@K/Kay.
I know, Kay, I know. You’re right. Will the right guy ever suit Nina to satisfaction? TPTB better not turn her into a you-know-what.
If only Jeff Branson (Ronan; Y&R), as a new character, would walk into Nina’s life….all would be well with me. They certainly had it going on Y&R. ” I felt the earth move under my feet”.

Oh no CeeCee..Google Jax (Ingo Rademacher) 1996…around there…when he first appeared on GH. He was THE Nathan and Griffin. Still very good-looking but back in the day???? Unbelievably stunning!

I’ve always liked Jax, since the ’90’s; however, I could care less for the new Joss and this storyline. Did anyone else find it ridiculous that the first kidney transplant prospect that Carly met, she was ready to except-without even a medical test to confirm? I just think it’s a dumb storyline-another storyline to introduce some cartoonish plot that has to do with the Cassadines or Jerry Jax.

Celia

So, Jax and Finn know each other! Wow. Coincidence? Well, Finn did do extensive travel ……the wilds of down-under?
Doesn’t Roxie look different? The original ‘actress’, LOL, was greener and larger. I guess she broke up with Finn.

Celia

I erred…too ahead of myself. Finn and Jax are so at ease with each other, at first meeting, I got the impression the knew each other.

They don’t know each other. They met for the first time at the metro court on Monday’s episode.

ive actually heard him say on occassion that if the show offered him full time he would move his family back. however, the show rejected him years ago, and that was why he moved away. i think he knows he still has some years in him left and is willing to go back full time if asked.

Rebecca1

I think you’re right jlov. After I posted that I read he said he wouldn’t close the door to coming back to GH…or even another soap…

I’m happy for the many Jax fans. It’s always fun when an old favorite returns. I don’t really dislike him, but yesterday’s encounter with Dr. Finn is a classic example of what bothers me about him. He just meets the guy and new immediately starts barking orders at him. It’s the same arrogance he displays way too often for me. Unless it’s about St. Brenda, who can do no wrong. But, live and let live. I hope the fans enjoy his return. I’ll just sit here and wait for the return of Billy Miller’s hair.

Lol! I’m waiting for Dr. Monroe’s! Looks like he just cut it again! Gorgeous, silky black locks…what is he thinking!!!

Soaphound

Oh, Rebecca, I’m afraid some goofball producer is instituting this “military” look. It just doesn’t work on most men. And if they wanna cut somebody’s hair, have a whack at Franco. He looks like a refugee from the 60s. Fortunately, nothing they can do can make Griffin anything but stunning. Keep your fingers crossed that the shears have been retired for the rest of summer!

I would love for Jax (Ingo) to be back. However I don’t think Becky or Ingo would not want to be paired.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
