Hot on the heels of the news this morning, TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan released an interview with incoming GH returnee, Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin)!

The word is that Shriner will begin taping next Tuesday, January 22nd and will first air on February 19th.  While Shriner is sworn to secrecy and does not know to much about what will go down, everyone is speculating that it will involve the reigniting of the Luke/Laura/Scotty triangle and feud.  According to TVG, all ABC would say on Shriner’s return thus far is: “Scotty’s arrival in town will have a ripple effect on the Spencer family!”   Here is an except from the interview below:

Shriner on when Scott returns how it will not sit well with Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) one bit!: “Yeah, I don’t think he’ll be throwing Scotty a party. If my character showed up and was involved with Laura (Genie Francis) it would really chap Luke’s hide. He would want to try and win her back, even if he has moved on with his life. This competition between them goes back 35 years so Ron Carlivati (GH, head writer) has so much story to pull from.  We thought the ’80s at GH were wild, well, this could be even wilder.  I can’t wait to get my grubby hands on that script.  I don’t know what they’ve got planned for me.  It’s very hush-hush-sweet-charlotte down there at ABC these days. Back in the old days we didn’t have all this texting and googling and tweeting to spoil storylines but, still, at the Luke and Laura wedding, Gloria Monty kept me locked in a trailer so the secret wouldn’t get out that Scotty was there to catch the bouquet. So, really, nothing’s changed!”

So soapers would you like to see Scott and Luke head to head for the love of Laura, one mo’ time?  Let us know!

Oh yeah…Scottie is always fun and Luke would be jealous.

But, really Laura deserves better–perhaps Robert Scorpio?

Don’t want Laura back with Luke at all. AG is ancient next to the young and vibrant Francis. He looks like her grandfather. Luke & Laura were good in there heyday but not today,it’s old news and Laura may love Scotty but she’s no longer in love with him so I don’t see that lasting either. Bring back Stephen Nichols and Stefan Cassadine as Genie/Stephens chemistry was off the charts and have them rekindle their love affair. The Luke/Scotty/Laura triangle has been done to death and frankly I’m over it and could care less. Being that Luke stayed with Tracey… Read more »

I always wanted Scotty and Laura Back together in a Mature relationship (Not a revisit of their youth, like in 2001) . I hope the big secret is scotty and laura are married and have a child. Luke will go nuts and Laura will be more responsible and stronger.

My first introduction to SOLAR (Scott and Laura) was 12 years ago. I loved them together then and I am looking so foward to seeing them now. And as pointed out, Scott, like Laura, has a lot of history with Port Charles, including Lucy Coe, Kevin, Bobby, the Qs … the “Scotty Baldwin” character has been on General Hospital almost from the beginning and no GH reboot could be complete without including him.

I see that according to IMDB, Peter Hansen and Susan Brown are still around as well. Would be nice to see Scotty visit mom and dad, even maybe just once!

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
