Jax Is Back On Monday's General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

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!

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… Read more »

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.

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
Guest

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… Read more »

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

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?

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.

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

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… Read more »

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

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
Guest

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
Guest
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

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
Guest

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… Read more »

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

@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
Guest
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
Guest
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… Read more »

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.

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
Guest
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
Guest
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”.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
