John Stamos Visited General Hospital Yesterday! Is The Return Of Blackie Parrish Imminent?

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

As General Hospital keeps bringing back the oldies but goodies of its 80’s hey day, another major star was apparently spotted at the set of the ABC soap yesterday and it was none other than John Stamos!

Stamos who got his start on GH as Blackie Parrish, was seen in this very cute picture with long time pal Kin Shriner, who is already back to work on GH as Scotty Baldwin! When Stamos posted the Instagram photo he related, “Visiting my buddy kin shriner (scotty baldwin) at my old stomping grounds –GH.”

In light of Jack Wagner’s (Frisco) return interview yesterday on Access Hollywood Live, where he admits he would love it if it can be worked out that he as Frisco could sing at the shows 50th Anniversary on-screen event, The Nurses’ Ball, it was Frisco who sang with Blackie’s band, where Blackie was the drummer!

Would you be thrilled if John Stamos could make a brief guest appearance for GH’s 50th on-screen shindig?  Let us know!

Yes… she started her career here as Jackie Templeton !!! This was just after Luke & Laura’s wedding, and Genie Frances left the show for the first time, disappearing off “The Haunted Star” and Jackie’s sister, Laura Templeton was the “new fake Laura”

I remember this like yesterday.

I could be wrong but wasnt Blackie Parrish serving time for a crime he didnt commit.? I dont recall him being released. How could he preform at nurses ball if still in prison?

Blackie was sentence to two years for second degree manslaughter in 1984. In 1987 when Dusty came on the show played by Shaun Cassidy, he mentioned meeting Blackie in prison and Blackie was released. Blackie has not been mention since.

Thanks Jenni. I didnt wach much of GH when Shaun Cassidy was on. I kinda remember him now that you mentioned. In the late 80s to late last year i watched off and on if certain stories interest me. Now im a regular viewer again who hates to miss an episode.

Gees…. I forgot all about Shaun Cassidy being on the show ! Bring him back with Rick Springfield, then Jack Wagner and John Stamos would have one hell-of-a teen bop band !

Jenni

Would Love that. I was a huge Shaun Cassidy fan growing up and was over the moon when he joined GH for his short story. Also I am a huge fan of Jack Wagner, Rick Springfield and John Stamos and would be a dream come true to see them on camera at the same time.

It was actually only susposed to be 6 mo and then to a half-way house. In 1987, Blackie’s cell mate, Dusty Walker (Shaun Cassidy) looked up Frisco and that was the only mention. In 1992, John Stamos played John Stamos.

Even if he’s just visiting, it’s nice. Nice he’s still friends with Kin and remembers where he got his start.

I do seem to recall Blackie’s wrongful imprisonment and writers seemed to drop the ball. What is difficult is there are very few characters around with whom he had interaction 25 or so years ago and… well… do we care? As much as I like John Stamos and eat Greek yogurt hoping to conjure him, if there is a return, I would want it to be meaningful to story, not just an odd insertion of something of long ago. Guess we shall see, huh?

jim

What about Jeff Webber, Noah Drake, Joe Kelly, Sean and Tiffany?

nope to anything from john stamos. he guested on glee w/c is 1 of the most racist tv shows towards Asian americans. they named both the Asian chars as chang bec it’s some kinda racist joke where all Asian americans are monolithic. like they couldn’t use some other name. then the racist coach character used to call them Asian and other Asian to further degrade them bec not calling the Asian american chars by their names is a form of humor for glee. then they had cohen chang mention that she didn’t wanna eat a chinese salas w/ chicken feet but would rather eat a “normal” salad. how racist was that joke? would the glee writers ever have a char say they would prefer something “normal” and imply that anything lgbt related is abnormal? of course not bec that would be homophobic. glee loves to lecture people on homophobia and lgbt bullying and gay suicide. and yet the huffington post has reported that more than 50% of Asian american students are bullied w/c makes them the most bullied group. while the Office of Minority Health (OMH) and National Asian Women’s Health Organization (NAWHO) has reported that suicide is the fifth leading cause of death among Asian americans compared to the ninth leading cause of death for white americans and that 16% of Asian american women have contemplated suicide compared with 13% of other Americans and that Asian American girls ages 15 to early 20s die from suicide at a higher rate than all other groups. but hollywood wouldn’t care abt creating storylines abt suicide among Asian americans and bullying Asian american students bec they’re too busy bashing Asian americans thru their portrayals and lacjk of representation. it took glee until season 3 to create an episode for the Asian american male char portrayed by harry shum and the female Asian american char portrayed by ushkowitz. and yet the episode for ushkowitz had her char bump her head and think she was white rachel! the only way glee would have an episode around ushkowitz is if her char thought she was a white woman! how racist was that episode? but nothing is worse than what glee did when matt bomer guested. blayne is portrayed by darren who is a part Asian american actor. but they cast his brother w/ matt bomer who is white. could glee not have cast a part Asian american actor considering how they get very little opportunities and there are very little Asian american representations? glee proclaims to be abt diveristy and tolerance and against gay bullying. yet glee bashes Asian americans thru whitewashing a char! and of course stamos guests on “the new normal” w/c is portrays ellen barkin’s char as someone backwards and yet “tolerant” hollywood is completely racist towards Asian americans.

I tweeted Frank Valentini on Twitter for Blackie Parrish aka John Stamos to come back to the show! I’ve followed John’s career since 1982 on General Hospital till now on The New Normal. John Stamos playing drums, guitar or singing would be heaven in my ears on GH!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
