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!”

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!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
