Jon Lindstrom Returning To General Hospital!

Courtesy/MPRM Comm.

Looks like everyone loves Lucy Coe on General Hospital? Or, do they?  News this morning out of ABC Soaps In Depth has another fan favorite returning to the ABC soap! Jon Lindstrom is on his way back as Kevin Collins just in time for February Sweeps!

GH headwriter Ron Carlivati revealed what brings Kevin back to the series, and what has happened with Lucy and Kevin’s relationship:  “The last we knew, it was implied at Lila’s memorial that Lucy had reconciled with Kevin, and that they were together.  And we did see a picture of him on her desk at CoeCoe Cosmetics.  So the big question is, where is he and why hasn’t she mentioned him? Lucy gets herself into a pretty major jam during February sweeps and, when that happens, she receives a surprise visitor. That is Kevin. When he arrives, you’ll find out why you haven’t seen him yet, why she hasn’t mentioned him and what is the status of their relationship.”

For those wondering just how long Lindstrom will be a part of the General Hospital canvas this time, apparently, mum’s  the word from ABC at this point in time.  

What do you think of Lindstrom heading back to GH? Would you like to see lots of Kevin and Lucy antics and romance?  Let us know!

Um… more actors coming to GH? It’s been like 2 weeks since we’ve seen Anna & Robert. There is such a thing is an overinflated cast! I love them all but ..

It is almost an embarassment of riches. I too am concerned about the size of the cast and the fact that we haven’t seen Anna, Robert & Luke, in how long? But I do love my vets!

Yep. I love the cast and there are only a few actors I’d let go (Britt, Sabrina, Kate/Connie, maybe Johnny, Molly, Christina) but there are just SO many on there that are awesome! I think Luke will finalllly be on today’s episode. I’m just loving this show though..

EXACTLY my problem. Great so beloved characters are returning. It means NOTHING when the show is so heavily bloated with so many others and so much else that after the allure of the return happens, they just mysteriously vanish for weeks on end before their disappearance is explained by another character. What good will the characters returning be when other “big returns” are sacrificed because of it, ones we were supposed to be super excited about when they were announced as returning? Too many eggs in the basket won’t make a meal, it will just mean lots of broken eggs.

Very well said. It breaks up the continuity of the storyline to have weeks in between before we get back to them. Anna is supposed to be a Police Commissioner and yet she never even shows up for work. Has time stood still? Will Robert still be in the same state of mind? Will Anna still be wearing the same clothing?
Like I’ve said before, just because an actor is available doesn’t mean we should bring em’ all to GH. Of course, I’d be willing to lose a few for Genie Francis 🙂

Characters don’t have to be on every single day! Anna just had a HUGE storyline. And with the return of Robin, we know she has another HUGE storyline coming up. Finola was probably on set filming a lot the last few months. Maybe they’ve written her so little recently to keep the actor from feeling overworked. And I think sometimes we choose to blame the writers and producers, but we have to keep in mind, the actors, especially the veterans, have certain things they ask for. And time off they request every so often. I’ve seen people complain about Luke… Read more »

All well said Hugo Boss! Amazing how some fans are so quick to point fingers at the writers and producers. I agree. We should be grateful GH has been rejuvinated. It’s been years since I watched on a daily basis and can’t wait for the next day’s episode. The show is so far removed from the old Sonny/Jason/Sam show with all of the dark, violent storylines and I for one am so happy! I don’t even miss “Jason” and I agree with a previous blogger, I can do without, Britt, Christina, Connie/Kate and who’s Sabrina?

I undertand that Tony goes to Amsterdam most of the year so I get that, but the cast is still HUGE and needs to be downsized a wee bit. When I see an entire episode surrounding Ellie, Sabrina, Britt and Christina I cringe. Why are these people getting so much airtime? That’s basically my point .. I know they need to move story along, esp Ellie, but the others to me are filler.

I don’t blame the writers but I do blame whoever keeps bringing more characters on.

I would love to see more Lucy and Kevin. The gear up to the big 5-0 has been nothing short of amazing to this long-time soap fan! Nice that ABC/D finally got a clue about how to treat their fanbase.

I’m so excited that Kevin is coming back. Goodness knows that Kate/Connie needs a decent shrink since Ewen turned out to be a sort of bad guy. Perhaps Todd, Starr, Johnny, Carly, Maxie and Patrick could also end up on the good doctor’s couch.

It would be fun to see Jon play both Kevin and Ryan again.If I remember right,Ryan’s body was never recovered from the fire,and with Felecia back together with Mack,it would make for interesting story lines.

You would never see these vets with the train wreck that Bob Guza and Jill Phelps turned General Hospital into when they were in charge.

I’m glad Kevin Lindstrom and “Doc” are coming back.

Who says new and old can’t mix and play together? I just love that the veterans are being incorporated whether it is for a short time or contract.

If Jill Farren Phelps were still producing, we would forget what the word vet means. Be grateful that there are major returns for the big anniversary.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section
