Jeffrey Vincent Parise Makes Another Return To General Hospital!

Great news Carrrlos fans!  Fan favorite baddie, Jeffrey Vincent Parise will appear on-screen in Port Charles next week on General Hospital!

According to the news on Friday from ABC Soaps In Depth, while viewers last saw Carlos taunting Julian (William deVry) as a vision or figment of his imagination, this time the series is being tight-lipped as to just why Carlos is back on-screen.

Could it be Carlos comes back to haunt Julian yet again? Perhaps it will be Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) who gave birth to his child that Carlos will pop up for? Or, could it be Sonny (Maurice Benard) he has some choice words for from the great beyond, or perhaps Griffin (Matt Cohen) who gave the murderer last rites?  Many options!

In the future, many GH fans have hoped that Parise’s Carlos might actually have a never-heard-of-before twin that the powers-that-be could bring in to Port Charles, so the actor could have new life on the long-running series.  Time will tell.

So, what do you think Carlos will be mixed-up in next week on air?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

BRING HIM BACK–he is Carlos’ brother–the good one (!) with MORE passion–maybe he is a PRIEST?–LOL! But he can leave priest hood, fall for Sabrina, have a torrid love affair, get her pregnant again, rock the town! 🙂

Which begs the question as to why writers needed to kill him off twice…. or why they needed to kill off Michael Easton’s character so he could have a fourth one in the course of less than two years.

I like Jeffrey very much. But this is truly getting ridiculous. If he must appear for more scenes keep him as a ghost. Then, move on. Let him find a great role elsewhere where we can all enjoy his talents.

JVP like Duke should have never been killed! Duke is dead but Carlos’s brother that ONLY the sneaky ex Ugly Betty nurse knew existed shows up in town as a clean shaven good guy out to heighten the family name and make sure Julian rots in a jail cell! He drops a bomb on PC about Sabrina’s secret life that will eventually end in a jail cell OR a mental facility! Rejoice! Carson Rivera is in town and Sabrina is heading out!

Glad he’s getting extra work but they never should have killed him in the first place. So much excess baggage needed disposing of instead (Aaron, Nurse Amy, Andre, Jordan, Rachel’s mother, T. J., Claudette, Officer Valerie) . Mr. Parise is a wonderful actor and deserves more than ghost stories. So do we.

Please, I have repeatedly asked Frank to bring Jeffrey back as his twin brother (his good twin) or cousin or look-alike or whoever! Just bring Jeffrey back any way except dead! He’s too one note when he’s dead. Let him be the good brother looking for explanations for his brother’s death or looking for his nephew. You guys are good at making stuff up, that’s your job.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

yeah, I cheerlead for his return

but… if you think to all the cast changes… returns newbies vets

can’t lie… JVP’ Carlos stands out

I marvel at how an actor can enervate other cast members and REEL

JVP work… with the likes of the much lauded STARS

only got that much better : Anna, Julian, Ava, Sonny, YES even Sabrina lit, Paul

this show is only as good as it’s STAR turns… Carlos … contributes and belongs

I love the idea that he’s Carlos twin… all spruced trimmed updo.. and not missing a beat and swag on

Patrick, let’s hope Frank actually reads these things and brings Jeffrey back!

Trish…Like your idea. Plus he would also want to finally see his nephew. But he can’t be too good…he’s got to have an edge so Jeffrey can show his stuff.

You and me both, Ces!!!! This is but another example of how one of “Frank’s Favorites” keeps coming back like a bad penny “just because” he likes them so much….the fact the character has more than run his course and worn out his welcome be damned! And, no, this isn’t a slam against JVP….he did a fine job as far a portraying a completely revolting, irredeemable dirtbag of an assassin, but enough is enough. Just let him gooooooo and be gone……please! (And no twin either…..unless he briefly pops up to for the sole purpose of spiriting away Sabs and “Teduardo”… Read more »

Teduardo!!! lmao!!! Love it! God, I wish they’d send Sabrina and that Crystal Gale hair off the canvas … she has about as much chemistry with Michael as Morgan does with Kiki the 2nd time around. None.
I think JVP is a capable actor but enough is enough. If you wanted to keep an actor around, then don’t kill them off every chance you get. I don’t want a twin, or a ghost, I want him gone off the show for good.
GH doesn’t seem to know how to move on.

Is it any wonder why GH hit an all time low? Enough already. Either leave him in the show or write him out. But this switching back and forth, we the views are sick of it already. Years ago, when they wrote someone out, due to death, they stayed dead. Now you just never know if they really died or not. I am waiting for the return of Helena once again. Boooooooooooring.

I can’t believe how GH still has the residents of Port Charles moaning and groaning about the deaths of two criminals — Duke and Carlos — but continues to sweep AJ’s murder by leading man Sonny under the rug. Disgusting.

I loved Carlos and JVP is such a fine actor. As usual GH had to go and ruin the character. He is handsome, sexy and actually had chemistry with Sabrina. I was shocked that they had him killed . Here is hoping he was NOT dead and Dr Munro somehow let him live. Come back my handsome Carlos.

Bring him back as a new character. It’s been done before anyone remember Marco Dane/Dr. Mario Corelli : Stephen Clay/Silas Clay? I say sure, give him a chance

Alan
Guest

The difference in the examples you cited is that there were strong head writers telling the Marco/Mario and Stephen/Silas stories. Jean and Shelly haven’t even developed the characters they’ve introduced (Darby, Andre, Parker, Curtis, Amy, Finn, that boy with Christina) into anyone worth investing in. GH needs to be trimming its insanely huge cast, not adding to it.

I’ve heard that the actor is well loved by his costar and obviously the show runner but enough already with the character, this is so tirering. Move on . Carlos just like Julian are weasels!

Written as weasels–difference is that the actor playing Carlos connected with the audience while Julian did not–he’s just an impassive mask–an automaton–no connection with the audience–just a cardboard cutout.

I’m completely mystified as to what it is people like about this character. Nothing against the actor, but the character of Carlos is a scumbag and has never been anything but. He’s way too old to be believable as Sabrina’s first love, and there’s never been a time when he wasn’t pushing himself on her, using her, and endangering her in some way. Pushing a woman all the time isn’t romantic; it’s sleazy. And don’t even get me started on how he killed Duke and then taunted Anna into shooting him! Gotta love his holier-than-thou act when Anna’s crime was… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
