Jax Is Coming Back As Ingo Rademacher Returns To GH!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

GH fans were rejoicing after executive producer, Frank Valentini, answered a question from longtime General Hospital fan Nicholas Bloom during this week’s #AskGH on social media.

Bloom asked if Jax would be returning anytime soon, to which Valentini replied  “YES! And it will be a HUGE payoff for Nelle, Carly, and Sonny.”    That means, popular star Ingo Rademacher (Jax) is set for a return on the ABC daytime drama series.

Viewers last saw Jax in Port Charles when he spent the Thanksgiving holiday with Carly (Laura Wright) to help through her son Morgan’d death.  They kissed when Carly had moved out of Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) after blaming him for the car bomb explosion that killed their son. However, Jax left to return to Australia after his mother, Lady Jane, became ill.

With Jax coming back on to the scene, will he finally divulge what he knows in the Josslyn kidney donor mystery that will have huge ramifications for Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Carly?  Will Carly, now believing Sonny cheated on her with Nelle, fall back into the arms of the dashing Jasper Jacks?  Stay tuned.

So, are you glad there is more Jax on the way? Comment below!

He’s as much at fault as Nelle for what happened! Max j
Knew all along, but kept him mouth shut! What
kind of a man (former husband, friend) does that? Why couldn’t he just be honest with Carly?
Nelle was a pawn in her father’s schemes.,,he was a money hungry SOB and he didn’t care how he got or who he had to use to get it !! He was a liar and a user too! I hope Jax tells the truth so Sonny and Carly could be happy again !!

PLEASE..no more musical men for Carly. Put her back with Sonny and then they can attack the world together…There are other things to write about, situations to attack. You do not have to constantly break them up.

I suspected Jax would make an appearance. It was inevitable….he holds the key to something….to the kidney mystery, I think. This story is so discombobulated….. Will his presence/explanation enlighten us? Did he seek Nelle out? But, why her, specifically? The greatest twist in this imbroglio would be if Jax has a secret concerning Nelle’s true paternity, or maternity. Perhaps, Benson is not her bio dad? Is Jax her father? There is a big age difference between Carly and Nelle. Is it possible Nelle is her daughter? Is it plausible to say Carly was pregnant as a teen giving birth to… Read more »

I originally thought she was Carlys daughter but now i cant see how…she seems younger than Micheal but maybe she is Jax’s daughter and he is the one who paid Benson to get the kidney to save Josslyn…Benson knew Jax was the father but kept it quiet…Nelle is really Jax;s daughter ,Jumpin’ Jax-lol

Celia

You’re right, Jimmy. The timeline for Carly doesn’t stand up. But, it could for Jax. I just want this story to be done, already.

Shay

Or Jerry’s daughter, jimh! That would certainly explain her peculiar psyche….and her suitability as a kidney donor for Josslyn.

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

I don’t think Jax would ever give up his daughter…not knowingly. Maybe some fling of his had her and he never knew she was his daughter. That would explain how she was a match for Jocelyn…and still keep her unrelated to Michael if they’re going the relationship route.

I also was waiting for Jax to come back and hopefully explain this kidney, or pancreas or lower intestine problem I’m so confused that story at this point! I’m mashugana already enough!

Celia

@Shay.
Yes, Shay. Jerry is also a contender. I do not know Jerry well, but from the little I’ve gleaned, he is evil.
I cannot equate Nelle’s psyche to his. Somehow, I think Nelle is a good girl…just messed up!
We shall see. Let’s hope Jax has something of import to reveal. Soooo tired of this story, Shaybelle.

@CeeCee….I was thinking back to the early days when Nelle seemed to be rocking that whole “Bad Seed” vibe, which would jive quite nicely with Jerry Jack’s “gleevil” (That would be “gleefully evil!”…..) persona.

Celia
Guest
Celia

@Shay.
Hey, Shay,
I was wondering; as inimical and pernicious Jerry is, does he have any friends? Did he ever? Does he even have a relationship with Jax?
For some reason I was not repulsed either by him, or Faison….I know I should be. I suppose Roche’s superlative ( and the fact that he is part Scottish) acting and Hove’s (who is part Dutch) hilarious ‘pazzia’ enthrall me, regardless their virulent personae.

PLEASE LET THIS STORY BE OVER SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Celia
Guest

@Shay.
Hey, Shay,
I answer you on both counts, my love; but, I see neither of my replies to you….Ahhh, well!!
I had just said that Nelle cried ‘telling’ tears….something which Jerry, I presume, never did. No human emotion or sympathy .
She must have feeling to do that.
However, that fact does not take the possibility off the table. Nelle showed compassion and love (for both Joss and Avery….and, of course, capable of loving a man ( Michael)…so, she may have inherited her mother’s ‘heart’, whoever she is.

Shay
Guest
Shay

To which I cry foul, CeeCeeGirl! LOL….But seriously, even though I would certainly not describe Jerry as one of those “touchy-feeling” sort of beta males, he is capable of certain depths of human emotion. When Sebastian Roche took over the role, he had some excellent scenes with his mother during which the long thought dead man’s identity was initially revealed and his much-changed appearance and subsequent change of name explained with a very intriguing storyline….yes, GH once actually had those, mia amica!…He also has demonstrated a protective, soft-spot for Joss….and has revealed that on a few various occasions, hence I… Read more »

Celia

@Shay.
Yes, of course, Shaybelle. What I’ve seen of Jerry was very limited….that time with Robin while she was held captive.
Therefore, my concept of him was not an honorable one, to say the least. Yet, even the worst miscreant can demonstrate some humanity.
You have a point.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Just to clarify, CeeCee….I was “crying foul” for the notion that your previous replies to me weren’t posted, not your thoughts or impressions of Jerry based upon your limited exposure to the character! Now that I know exactly just how little you’ve actually seen of Mr. Jacks, I can certainly understand why you would consider him as a solely unsavory sort of sod with more than a scoche of sociopathy….However, if you ever get the chance, go back to the earlier episodes and check out some of Sebastian’s more brilliant and emotionally-expansive performances from his past GH stints…some are downright… Read more »

Jerry had a kind streak back in the day when he dated Bobbi. I believe it was a different actor? GH tends to turn all their villains into cartoon characters!

@CeeCee…I’ve not been repulsed by Jerry or Faison, either! I think they are absolute laugh riots, although the notion that the clearly-obsessed Liesl worshipped her “Cesar” as some sort of sexual demigod to be admired with breathless adoration has always been a source of both amusement and puzzlement for me. However, Sebastian Roche’s Jerry is very much an attractive, sophisticated gent with a continental bent and naughty glint in his eye, who—under the proper circumstances—-could be considered quite swoonworthy and desirable, albeit a seriously dangerous liaison, just the same! As for Jerry’s “friendships?” For all the time I’ve known of… Read more »

@Timmm.
Hey, Timmmy,
Don’t get me wrong, I like Jerry, in a weird way. His and Faison’s malevolent escapades hit my funny bone.
Then, again, my sense of humor goes against the grain. I find some situations hilariously funny. Eg. The scene on the bridge with Rudge and Sonny. He was soooo dwarfed by Rudge–just struck me, as it probably would not others. LOL.
So, please pray tell, did Bobbi date the entire football team, all the townsmen, and then some?? HaHa!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

@CeeCee….Per your query to Timmm about Bobbie’s “antics” back in the day? I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the entire town (or football team, for that matter…shades of Clara Bow, who, incidentally, also never did the deed for which she was famously accused….) made it on her “been there, done that,” list, but yes, she did cut quite a sexual swathe during her earlier years in Port Charles. Of course, she had an impressive(?) head start pre-GH, which is frequently alluded to regarding her past as a prostitute before she segued from the world’s “oldest profession” to… Read more »

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Timmm….You are correct, although I watched very little of the pre-Sebastian Roche version of the Jerry Jacks character. As I mentioned to CeeCee, “Jerry the First” was nowhere near as smooth a criminal as what we see today….he was often betrayed in his schemes by his own general lack of savvy and smarts….much unlike today’s too-clever-by-half archvillain. Basically, he was just one big screw-up….

Roche could play Daniel Craig’s’ [James Bond] older brother. Both handsome BUT did not like Craig as Bond. Looking for a refreshing reboot.

Shay

Timmm….I agree with you about Craig’s Bond…although I’m not a fan of the franchise, in general….I did enjoy the actor in a very absorbing British mystery from earlier in his career….It was called “The Ice House.” Sebastian Roche is a most versatile actor….I have seen him appear in numerous guest spots, and he is always excellent….his performances never fail to feature that European mystique and saucy twinkle in his eye….love him! Oh….and long live Jerry Jacks!

Hopefully these writers don’t ruin his character at the altar of Saint Sonny. We need some good guys on this show. If they have it turn out that Jax knew Jake wasn’t dead and kept that secret from Elizabeth, we can add Jax to the list (Nikolas, Elizabeth) of good characters that are tarnished because of a dumb plot point. Someone said it here recently, bringing Jake back from the dead really wasn’t necessary. It gave us a few moving scenes with Lucky, who quickly returned to being a deadbeat dad. Since Jake’s return, it seems like Elizabeth only has… Read more »

Agreed, Steve. As usual, you have a knack of putting things in perspective….as Alan, as Shay …without boring me.
Another point I’d like to make is….May ‘ye gods’ keep us from enduring more of Carly. ( Egads!!!!!). The back and forth between these guys is soooooo not enticing. I beg the forces to send her to a spa far, far away, for a prolonged period of time. She needs a cleansing, in more ways than one.

@rebecca. LOL.I want to clarify….when I speak of ‘imposing’ figure, I do not necessarily mean size or height. Members of l’organizzazione Calabrese Ndrangheta, specifically Condello (and others) did, in fact, pose a “heightened” figure, albeit they are short in stature. Sonny looked ridiculous next ro Rudge, that’s all, rebecca. I thought they looked hilarious next to each other. Sonny does not have a scary presence…..no aura of any kind….benign or otherwise. He is a pompous blank, with temper tantrums, baying at the moon. And, I truly find the writers’s complete and utter dismissal of AJ irreverent; not to mention the… Read more »

I think, today, Ava let Sonny have it. He seems to hold himself to a higher level/standard from the rest of the lowly ‘commoners’.

And of course, the self-deluded Sonny is a legend in his own mind, too, just as was Napoleon, CeeCeeGirl! Now if we could only banish “Crime Emperor Corinthos” to his own version of Elba…LOL! .As for the big secret that Olivia is harboring??? If it is that Griffin is the son of Anna and Duke, it certainly won’t come as any big shock to most. I should think that Olivia being Duke’s babymama, aka Griff’s bio-mommy, would be a more surprising result. Hey, with these writers, anything’s possible!

Celia
Guest

@Shay.
Mais oui, ma chere.
There is always a remote spot on the Corinth Canal waiting for Sonny–exiled within the bones of a long gone warrior ghost ship, inhabited by mighty Spartan spirits. Lol. N’est-ce pas? I do believe he expects everyone’s subservience by kissing his uhmmm, ring.
Yes! Absolutely, Shay. Olivia as Griffin’s bio mom? That would be a killer impact, albeit a tragic one. Poor Griffin. And, Poor Anna. It would be such an affront; the most stinging slap in the face, ever.
Would the writers go there?

Shay
Guest

Don’t you mean “The Corinthos Canal?” Just joshing, CeeCeeGirl…)Of course, I get your drift! But I truly could envision Sonny “in exile,” his innate madness there to serve as his only companion…’twould make for a compelling–and well-deserved—fate for old SonnyBoy! So, this, ahem, discussion of the Mafiosi and their supposedly shared slight statures begs the question, are there trading cards for followers of these underworld luminaries, complete with height and weight data???? There seems to be an audience for this riveting sort of info, rather the equivalent of sports fans who recite baseball stats!!!! Just had to ask…LOL!….Anyway, I agree… Read more »

@Shay. E’ vero, Shay. That’s why I brought up the potential drama and controversy: Olivia and Griffin; mother and son. Of course, it would be a blow to Anna…especially to her heart. But, this is what gives a good dramatic and drastic twist to any soapy storyline. I would absorb it; relish it, in a NY minute. Now, I purposely chose the Corinth Canal amidst thousands because of the Corinthos name; which is Greek, by the by. So, how does Sonny get a Greek name? I thought he was Irish/Hispanic? Anyhoo, my Shay….I am finally unfettered!!!! No cast. Weirdly enough,… Read more »

Sonny is also partially Greek, CeeCeeGirl! His bio-daddy, Mike Corbin, has both Irish AND Greek extraction…his late mama was full-on Cuban. Yes, I’m always up for a fine storyline for Anna, too…and I’m very pleased that Finola’s exquisitely understated performances of the past year have garnered her an Emmy nomination…I so want for her to win! At any rate, it is indeed good news that you’ve finally been released from your cast-laden state….just in time for spring…like a butterfly emerging from their cocoon! Perhaps a bit of muscle-atrophy is to blame for your post-injury difference in leg dimension???

You’re just as obnoxious as ever, Shay. Your obvious references to my reply, as well as Rose, to CeeCee’s observations about Sonny’s height…to which you, too, mentioned Napoleon for his short stature…is…well..obnoxious! Everyone was kinda gettin’ along well in your absence. But you like “teaming” up. So be it. Who am I to deprive you of making fun of everyone and everything?

CeeCee…just so you know…I, too, was (not in a cast) but in a walking boot for four months! Broke my entire foot…ankle, heel, tibia, etc, etc. Just started walking again about six months ago.

Jasper Jax is such a wonderful character and man; yet, he is constantly dumped (lack of a better term) in order to prop up Sonny. It’s just awful. Why do such nice guys have to finish last? I don’t care about Nelle or her backstory. I care about romance. It’s daytime and yet we do not receive any daytime “delight” in forms of healthy relationships or romance. What do we get?

Thanks. For writing great well thought out post. Sonnyis a great character played by a great actor but relying on him too much hurts the show as a whole.

Speaking of Sonny, Tea….I thought that scene on the bridge with Rudge looked so ridiculously misplaced. Rudge dwarfed him….the image just didn’t compute . Sonny, the imperious mafioso did not an imposing figure cut. Au contraire, the parable “The Lion And The Mouse” came to mind; except that without a gun, Rudge would have swatted him in a single swoop.

No, I don’t want Jax toget her with Carly because Sonny is the only man for her. I want Jax to come clean about his role in Josslyn’S donor because he was so adamant about Carly dropping the search for the donor.

I really like Ingo Rademacher (Jax).. but I don’t believe he has any intentions of returning to GH outside of the short term stints he seems to be fine with doing every now and then when needed..

And, the total whitewashing of Nell ..

I lack enthusiasm for his return. During the last several years, it’s always been very short-term. And always very predictable. Doesn’t really serve much purpose for the show overall when they bring back characters who’d been regulars for years just for a few weeks here and there.

While I totally buy the idea of Jax doing whatever it took to get a kidney for his daughter, it is a stretch that with all his money and the immediate fear of losing his child Jax would think “hey, I should waste precious time looking up Carly’s estranged adoptive father she hasn’t seen in over two decades and see if he’s fathered any non-biological siblings during that time that could be a possible donor match.” To sell this story I’m assuming Jean and Shelly will go with a retconned memory of Jax remembering that he saw one of the… Read more »

Good questions, Alan, but let’s wait and see if any of those are answered when Jax gets back to town. We know he can be ruthless in business; that’s how he was portrayed when he was introduced years ago. So, he probably dug up whatever he could…perhaps there’s a secret that hasn’t been revealed. Either way he probably used Carly’s name or forged a letter…something…without Carly’s knowledge.

As for Benson not showing up…Jax is way wealthier than Carly/Sonny. I’m sure Jax compensated him quite well for his silence/absence.

Rebecca….Thought I would add to your list of two “little Napolean” gangsters from film who possibly played the roles better than the real ones…Edward G. Robinson and James Cagney. Or at least made them more entertaining than real life. And “Oh,” I am so, so ready for the Morgan story from Carly and Sonny to be over. I feel bad for Morgan, and for Carly and Sonny’s pain and mourning. But enough is enough is enough from both of the latter. Especially since they had him farmed out to private school for much of his younger life.

I’ll trade you one Morgan for one Carly. I actually find her more grating than Sonny. Not Laura Wright; great actress. But I just can’t stand Carly. Wanna slap the smug off of her.

Let’s hope our PBS shows won’t go the way of decency, compassion, meals on wheels, normalcy, healthcare…basic human values, on and on and on. We NEED culture to escape this madness, n’est pas?

This entire Nelle story has been a total flop. Aside from the performances by Chloe Lanier and Laura Wright this week, there has been nothing interesting about this story. Months of Nelle staring at letters, playing with that damn baby rattle, and giving Carly side-eye behind her back was becoming intolerable. And the reveal doesn’t even make sense! Frank Benson was not Carly’s biological father, so why would Carly reach out to him for Nelle’s kidney? How would she know it could be a match when Nelle and Joss aren’t blood related?

Yes, I love that idea….Nina and Jax with a jarring past. But, Nina was dormant for most of her life. And, from what we were led to believe, she was madly in love with her husband….her world revolved around him and she climbed mountains to be with him.
Actually, I still believe Kiki is hers. If TPTB can incorporate that with Jimmy’s theory, then I’ll buy the the story.
The timeline needs to fit. When and how did Jax and Nina meet? And, most importantly, WHY!!

Jax and Nina would make a striking couple visually…but as I’ve said many times, I think it would be totally out of character for Jax to abandon any child of his. I don’t think he’d stay away, and I think if he found out Nell was his he’d seek her out, talk to her and explain the situation…that she could save her sister’s life. I’m not saying the writers couldn’t write it the way you described but I’d find fault for the reasons I just cited. Good post, though and if Jax were a different type of man I think… Read more »

I’m not looking forward to Jax accepting the entire blame for the entire Nell situation.

Let’s hope that his return is permanent, and a reunion between Jax and Carly (Laura Wright) immediately happens!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
