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 and didn’t go with Laura even though she told him he didn’t have to doesn’t say much for their love. Stefan would of gone to the ends of the earth for his Lasha. Please no to Luke/Scotty. Laura needs her Cassadine or maybe a man like Mac. She needs to stand on her own without these too losers. Keep Luke with Tracy, Laura’s days of whining after him are long gone and I hope the writers give her something of her own without having to share it with Luke for once! AG has gotten away with murder having all the best stories written for him over the years and getting the longest vacation time over every other actor while GF has been thrown under the bus over and over. Now it’s time to let Genie shine!

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!

The series loglines from ABC reveal: “Grand Hotel is a bold provocative drama set at the last family-owned hotel in multicultural Miami Beach.
