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 still being gone, but that’s not on GH. That’s on Tony. And his yearly vacations. When they brought Robert back to help Anna, he even mentioned in an interview on here with Michael how his initial scripts said “Luke”. And they went back and changed scenes to make them work for Robert.

I think we as fans just sometimes need to remember we don’t always know the entire story of goings on behind the scenes. And should just be grateful the show’s ratings are going up. The show is flowing better. We are getting returns that people have wished for for years now. It’s not the Sonny/Carly/Jason/Sam show featuring a bunch of other talented actors as extras every day. And that if they want the show to remain entertaining, they probably have to pace out certain ideas for characters as to help them not become boring or even moreso, so they don’t feel forced down our throats everyday.

I think GH currently needs to take the title of #1 Soap from Y&R as of lately. lol. Or either Ron and Frank should just be put in charge of ALL daytime dramas. ;-p

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?

Ces

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.

Great news but the show is getting way overcrowded. Time for a spin-off.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Courtesy/ABC

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

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.

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?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
