Jeffrey Vincent Parise Returns To General Hospital As Dr. Joe Rivera!

Courtesy/ABC

On-Air On-Soaps along with many General Hospital fans were hoping that the powers-that-be at the ABC daytime drama series would find a way to keep fan favorite Jeffrey Vincent Parise alive and kicking on our screens after finally killing-off his alter-ego, Carlos Rivera.

First, we had Carlos back in visions taunting Anna (Finola Hughes) and Julian (William deVry), but this week fans learned the ultimate plan.  Pull out the old twin plot device and bring Parise back as Carlos’ brother, and that is what they did!

Viewers were introduced to Parise’s new incarnation as Dr. Joe Rivera as he comes to the door at the Quartermaines and reconnects with Sabrina (Teresa Santiago).  It is clear from Sabrina’s introduction of him to a leery Michael (Chad Duell) that she knew Joe way back when  confirming the twin story is true.   She also dated the guy.  And to boot, what is Joe by profession? A pediatric surgeon!  He could definitely help in the care of baby Teddy.  Thus, throwing a wrench in the burgeoning romance of Michael and Sabrina.

Upon his re-emergence on to the Port Charles canvas, Parise was flooded by GH fans thrilled to have him back via social media.  Jeffrey sent out this tweet in acknowledgement:  “Once again I’m blown away by the kindness of @GeneralHospital fans. Thank U 4 the warm welcome back! Gonna B a fun ride!

So, what do you think about GH playing the twin card and bringing Parise back to the show? Are you hoping Joe sways Sabrina away from Michael?  Are you excited to have the actor back on the show in a new role?  Are you perhaps a naysayer, who thinks that somehow down the line this could all be a twist, and Joe is really Carlos?

I’m thrilled to have Jeffrey back as a new character. He is a stellar actor and brings a great energy to the show whenever he is on. Welcome back, JVP!

OMG, I didn’t know he was coming back until I saw the episode. I wasn’t a huge Carlos fan, but I LOVE me some Jeffrey. Is he like, the best looking guy ever or is it just me? I’m excited to see him back on screen!!

We’ve had so many “long-lost twins” in the past, some good, others not. Any way we can keep an outstanding actor like Jeffrey is just fine with me. Welcome back, JVP, glad you are (hopefully) here to stay for a very long time to come.

Yeah…i agree…no real shocker here…i also seen twin switches on Dark Shadows, Return To Peyton Place, and Days Of Our Lives-all those shows were better at it!!

That’s what I said on another post Jim…it would be too ridiculous, and it wouldn’t get Julian out of a murder charge. I had hoped that Sabrina and Michael would have a shot…which we now know WON’T be happening since enter “the twin” just as Sabrina says she’s “finally getting her happy ending.” “Joe’s presence should send Julian straight to the psych ward…lol, that’ll get him out of jail! Maybe he’ll have an affair with Heather! I see BLT’s in his future…

I like them too Phil. Michael deserves to be happy…which is how I felt toward Sabrina too after being ditched by Patrick and losing her baby. I was surprised though when, upon her return, she made it seem like she went with Carlos because she loved him. My recollection was she went under duress…not threat of physical harm…but felt pressured. Also seemed like she loved Michael and didn’t want to leave him. There was no mention of this when she returned, which would have made their “live story” stronger. Seems now like Michael’s feelings are stronger for her than hers for him.

Love, not live, story

Patrick
Patrick

really, “strong” post

I will reiterate…. I have grown to adore Sabrina

first and foremost… I will always want more people of color
2ndly… I wanted a relationship with Michael… if this solidified her belong

I’ve made no bones about how uninterested I think the character Michael

lightning struck… not as strong as heat induced or come hither

but a chord of semblance… a chemistry WITH two characters

so yes… for all it’s worth… I like these two characters together…

where else could either of these two go ?

it would seem… and I’m still interested that she and Dr. John could… flirt with togetherness… I LOVED CARLOS passion and love for “his” son and sublime believe in his love for his lady love Sabrina

I know it worked

Sabrina has grown on me
Nathan has grown
Michael is much more interesting with finally at last a pairing that is a sensitive portrayal that he the actor can work with… I buy it

pairing Sabrina with Tracy always helps… anyone

I don’t know… I sometimes think.. the actor who portraits Sabrina… is doing a bang up job

a “Latina” and/or Puerto Rican who is finding her way… I root for her

she has a strong back up going for her… and I do not see it as trying tiresome or lack

so… for all it’s worth… Sabrina w/Michael… just like : dante/lulu, maxie/Nathan

go their

Thanks Patrick. i always liked Sabrina. She was sort of like Emily. Sincerely sweet; no ulterior motive which some had accused her of when she was with Patrick. She was supposed to be a stark contrast to Britt who was the gorgeous bitch…Sabrina the mousey nurse with a heart of gold. The problem is even though I like her they STILL haven’t evolved her into someone I feel connected to or look forward to seeing in an episode. On the other hand the show needs balance and it has very few truly good people. Michael and Sabrina, IF allowed to develop, could be a hot chocolate on a cold, winter day. Lol…a comfort couple. Home and hearth couple with baby makes three. They could continue living with Tracy and Monica, Dylan…and start bringing people to the house again. Sabrina, like Emily before her and Lila before her could be the ” heart” of the Q house if Michael took his rightful place in the Q family and they got married.

I always liked Michael. The original, adorable little red-headed actor who was the Spencer of his day…to this adult Michael. First, I think he’s good looking. And honest, sincere, compassionate, loyal. He’s just one of the good guys, untainted, miraculously considering his manipulative mom and mob “dad.” Of course I’m beyond pissed that he forgave Sonny AND Carly with what they did to AJ…the murder of course but EVERY rotten thing they did to him. There should still be some visible conflict in Michael even as he continues a relationship with Carly and Sonny. There should still be inner turmoil…

I agree about Ryan Paevy/Nathan. I think his acting has improved tremendously. I like the actor and the character.

I am thinking that he is Carlos. Kevin Collins, Grant (can’t remember his name), were twins posing as each other in the past on GH. No one stats dead on GH!

Patrick

I am stunned at this turn

a revelation of cast aplomb and let the show begin

he’s so much FUN
he’s so intriguing
he’s so dashing
he’s so sense of humor

he will go wherever he should

he melds that well with the whole cast

what a dream

Thank “you” General Hospital / ABC / Disney

He is a keeper! He’s a fabulous actor. He could be paired with anyone on the show & make the scene better. That’s a rare quality for any actor, so kudos to GH for figuring out what a loss they had with Carrrrrrrlos’s demise.

Patrick…Love having Jeffrey back. Yea! As a paediatric doctor maybe he can also help Carly on her search for Joss’s donor. BUT…I couldn’t help sense an undercurrent about him. We don’t want “John” to be too squeaky clean , do we?

Patrick
Patrick

LOL

absolutely

there has to be some menace to machismo his MOVE

i’m giddy reading all the posts

whenever I’ve read his stuff in SOD… or whathaveyou

it’s really endearing to read how .. he genuinely cares about this craft as an art form

I’m happy he’s happy to be in this genre

Celia
Celia

Hey, Rose.
You’re such a nice person. I really don’t care about the Joss kidney story. Proverbial needle in a haystack?
The only way this story would turn my head would have to be something astronomically out of this hemisphere. Who is the donor….someone we could never have imagined? Let’s see; Sonny? Another gold medal to add to his lapel and more fodder for his already swelled head.
As far as Joe, I agree. He has that aura of mystery which is so typical and ‘familiar’ to soaps. I think he is still in love with Sabrina. Carlos ‘stole’ her from him. Now, there is another obstacle…Michael.
But, I think jimh may have a great point; that is, Joe was Carlos and vice versa.

rose
rose

Celia I see merit in Jimh’s suggestion as well. Maybe thats why I sensed something under that calm demeanor. No one can account for all of Carlos time, where he’s been, and who he saw. So a real cameleon?

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

I’m back to take credit again…hey, we all do it! 🙂 I said on a previous post Joe might be Carlos! Not sure what I believe which is half the fun, but the thought immediately came to mind. Either way he’s probably trouble.

Celia
Celia

I know you always make sense, Rose. And, if truth be known, I felt the same undercurrent. But, not in a bad way…only that he wants Sabrina.
Then, again….the possibility that Joe and Carlos are one and the same, is the elephant in the room. There is that!!!

And, Rebecca. I see nothing wrong in taking credit. You did say this first. It is what it is.
Just as I will, eventually, take credit if Naomi is, indeed, Liz’s mother. I said it first. LOL.

Sorry but, this was pointless. Especially since Dr. Joe just doesn’t make any sense. There was never any kind of mention of him existing, and it doesn’t paint Sabrina is a good light. And if you’re going to create secondary characters for people like JVP or third/fourth ones for ME, then how about other former cast members who fans loved? Why aren’t they being offered new roles?

Shay
Shay

It was one thing to do it for ME….people clamored for his return from an abrupt, unjust dismissal and the actor was already known for his chameleon-like array of characters from Port Charles past. But this instance is just gratuitous….more about the showrunner’s desire to bring back a favored actor than for the purpose of a justifiable storyline. Given GH’s propensity for look-alikes, perhaps it should be redubbed “Doppelganger Hospital!”

Celia
Celia

Very well phrased, Shaybelle. I like what you say about the probable reason for bringing Parise back. Not because he fits in a pertaining storyline, but because he is a fan-fave.
I wish it could always be thus….what fans want, fans get.

Jason Loves GH

I wasn’t particularly fond of Carlos but I have to say that I very much like this insanely handsome man being back on the show. If our first glance at him in his new role is an indicator of things to come…keep it coming, Mr. Valentini. Bravo! Welcome back to the show, Mr. Parise!

JK
JK

SO HAPPY TO SEE THIS GREAT ACTOR BACK ON GH…..NICE SURPRISE!!! HOPE HE HAS A GOOD STORYLINE….

Jimmy
Jimmy

There are 3 reasons why I can immediately get behind this new character.

First, Jeffrey is back! He’s a fantastic actor and the show made a real blunder when they killed him off – twice. The only other alternative for Carlos was prison, since the writers seemed so intent on painting him into a corner time and time again, so he would have been off screen anyway.

Second, he’s not a total newbie because he has ties to the canvas, and a history with Sabrina, meaning he’s not some never before heard of long-lost relative. Even though GH used the tired twin plot device, this one works.

And third, he’s a doctor. The hospital staff needs to be boosted now that a serial killer is on the loose, and not with characters like Andre, Amy and Dr. Mayes who no one cares about. Plus, because he’s a pediatric surgeon, I have a strong feeling he’ll somehow be connected to the Josslyn kidney donor story.

This is one of GH’s best casting decisions lately, so I hope things work out better for Joe than they did for Carlos.

Melissa

As much as I hate the tired twin trope, I too am glad JVP is back! I’m willing it go for the ride on this one n

I do miss all of Carlos’ wild hair, but this guy is the real deal as an actor, so I’m thrilled anyway. NOW can we get rid of Aaron, Andre, Jordan, Naomi, T. J., Parker and her undoubtedly on-the-horizon wife, and especially Claudette? Pretty please.

Timmm

I support all of your dismissals!

That list should include Hate-den-lol

Shay

Me three, Timmm!!!!….Plus Sabs, Teduardo, Nina, Alexis and Hayden!

Celia
Celia

Yes, yes, and more yes, Soaphound. But, can we wait and see what happens with the Hayden-Lizzie ‘intrigue’ first, before getting rid of Naomi? She’s smack in the middle of this ‘smelly’ storyline.

Shay
Shay

The only question is just how did she land in the middle???? Did she buy “Baby Rachel” from the almost supernaturally fertile Heather, unbeknowst to Papa Jeff????? (Meaning did Ms. Webber have another child or children under the radar just like with Franco? She supposedly suffered a miscarriage during her second pregnancy with Jeff.) It would seem that twins with Liz being the other child isn’t the answer, or this nuttier than fruitcake character would have been raising the red flag when her son expressed a romantic interest in Elizabeth…..so maybe there is only a half-sisterly link between Hayden and Nurse Webber? Or Naomi had Jeff’s twins and these two are full-on siblings, but then how does Heather enter into the equation??? Perhaps whilst she was participating in her own maternity ward hijinks during the Jason and Franco births, she happened upon Naomi’s own “special deliveries????” It still doesn’t explain Jeff’s past in the equation….when first he left Port Charles, he headed for Nevada, then overseas. Did he meet Naomi in Vegas??? I’m sure whatever scenario is conjured to set up this storyline, it will be as full of holes as most others!

Celia
Celia

@Shay.
Hey, babes….,
Well, now; this ‘Jeff-business’, as you know, is virgin territory for me. I am assuming Jeff is Lizzie’s Daddy?
LOL, Shay, as soon as Heather entered the ‘equation’, a few thoughts entered my mind….not as sophisticated as yours due to the fact of my limited knowledge……I find myself quite handicapped when many of you get nostalgic and take a trip down memory lane…… yet, I wondered.
If Nutty Hetty did not react to the news that her son is interested in Lizzie is perhaps for the simple reason she had not borne Hayden or Liz. Just speculating here. It is impossible to give a judicious guess on these soaps……so, ultimately we accept whatever is served on our plates.
So many scenatios: Liz and Hayden could be twins, fathered by this Jeff person, as I said. Naomi kept Hayden and gave Liz to the Webers. Daddy Ray was cockooled, and was never the wiser. As the Italians say; he is “cornuto”…. Wearing horns ( when a wife cheats on her spouse).
OR: the women are half-sisters, which would have no bearing on Franco doing the no-no with Liz.
On the other hand, if they are hanf sisters, and Heather did give birth to Hayden ( the father being Ray), then Franco and Hayden are half siblings.
Is it possible Heather ‘gave’ the baby to Ray and Naomi?A reverse situation could be applicable here. HaHaHaHaHa. Now, I am taking this to the utmost extreme……the imagination gallops, Shay. I hope you are following me because I can’t seem to follow myself, LOL.
Nonetheless, there is a definite ‘something’ between Naomi and Heather. Undoubtedly, the storytellers don’t have the plot within their grasp yet. Will it fizzle out like Fluke’s?
Whatever happens, I am just glad to see Heather. She is simply and indubitably a riot to watch.
Accidental pun. Later.

Timmm
Timmm

We should wait a minute because you are correct sweetie, Hayden is FINALLY getting interesting courtesy of Liz’s suggested mother. Hayden and Liz can scratch their eyes out and then Sarah Webber rolls into town to put BOTH of them in their places and THEN Richard Dean Anderson reprises his role as Jeff Webber AND HE is connected to Laura. GH is back!!!

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee…..Well, one can never underestimate Heather’s powers of duplicity….she is a seasoned pro nonpareil! You know, I had another thought about her lack of concern for a Liz and Franco physical pairing….just suppose she really isn’t the Franckenbirth mama after all….since she’s lied about nearly everything else when it suits her purpose, why not the truth regarding this mad artiste’s real origins??? That would clear the way for her to have produced baby Liz (and/or Hayden)…..just a notion! (I’m hoping against that first suggestion….I mean the lovely Liz as Heather’s daughter???? Ohhhh nooooo! Now Hayden, I would believe as this shedevil’s spawn, given she definitely has exhibited similar tendencies!) Honestly, even though I was pretty much privy to all of Ms. Webber’s inspired lunacy during the ’80’s when her antics were heavily featured onscreen, the modern day regimes have already so incorporated major revisionism into the past lives of all our beloved legacy characters that anything is now possible!!!! It seems as though Heather has lived most of her life in the shadows, and has plenty of skeletons in her closet left to unearth! As for the details of Jeff and his Heathers I/II, I had to check online for details, because I never really “knew” them…..perhaps I briefly saw them through some flashbacks, which soaps once heavily utilized—and would be an excellent means of bringing people up to speed today—but I still needed to fact check on specifics about these characters. Even with such information at hand, there are still plenty of major loopholes and lapses left open to interpretation…..and you can bet the showrunners will shamelessly exploit them! Let’s just pray this twisted family tree tale isn’t as convoluted as the “Clusterfluke!”

Becky
Becky

I guess they thought it would be too soon to bring him back from the dead a second time. So they used the tired twin storyline. Too much! This show is getting ludicrous and I wanted to throw something at the tv when he walked in. Love the actor but enough is enough already. I may have to move on.

Alan
Alan

How inspired to make him a pediatric surgeon since all the kids on this show are either SORAS-ed or rarely (if ever) shown.

At this point I just hope the show will just keeps adding more and more new characters every week until the credits take up the entire hour (that would be more entertaining than anything Jean and Shelly have on screen these days).

This actor can say more with his eyes than many can say with pages of lines. He proved that yet again when he stepped thru the door as Joe.

I have a funny feeling they’re just recycling the Ava/Denise storyline from last year. I feel Carlos somehow paid one of doctors to make it look like he was dead, and then said he came back as his “twin brother” so he can get the upper hand on Julian.

So many things can be done here. Number 1: reveal that Carlos and Jienare lily’s Rivera’s brothers and let Sonny feel terrible about how he treated Carlos.
Number 2: have Joe ask Sonny to seek revenge on Julian. Sonny agrees due to guilt even though he knows this will anger Micheal.
Number3: John and Alexis. I know seems off, but i dunno i think it could work. If not Alexis, have him paired with Claudette!!
Any other ideas out there?

With a bit of luck, maybe Dr. Joe will “surgically remove” Sabs and son by taking them all back from whence they came…..she always wanted to snag a doctor, so now here’s her chance!

Best news of the week! Handsome, excellent acting skills, charisma galore! What a treat to see him when he was at the door!
Really don’t care what plot device would have been used to bring him back, just glad they had the sense to not let this talented guy get away!
Would be neat to see if he has a little bit (just a teeny bit) of a darkside to contend with.
Bravo GH executives!!

I am so glad GH found a way to bring Jeffrey Vincent Parise back. I think he’s an awesome actor and he’s quite good-looking, as well. I’m not bothered by the ‘unknown twin’ storyline – it’s no more unbelievable than a lot of other storylines on all the daytime ‘dramas’. I loved the character of Carlos with Sabrina, so I’m hoping that chemistry continues with Joe and Sabrina. I find Sabrina to be a bit boring, but she came to life when she was with Carlos. I’m not a fan of her and Michael together, so bring on Sabrina and Joe!

edith

I am THRILLED to have Jeffrey Vincent Parise back! I screamed out loud when Joe came to Sabrina’s door! I really had to do a double take when he came on to see if it was the same actor! His whole aura had changed! But where did he go? What a tease!

Christy

I was pleasantly surprised. It was a surprise when Carlos’ ghost popped up in Julians room, and then to see jefferey again when sabrina opened the door. Great they brought him back, and loved they voice, look change too.

Never been in love with Michael and Sabrina tho… not even a like.

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

WATCH THE REPLAY: GH Facebook Live With Maurice Benard & Laura Wright
