Recently on her Instagram story, Daytime Emmy-winner, Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina), revealed she is back at work at General Hospital.

The actress who debuted as Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) daughter back in 2009 has been on and off the series through the years, and fans have wanted to see Ainsworth back with more story on the Port Charles canvas.

Ainsworth tagged General Hospital in her IG story post and noted Prospect Studios were the show is taped along with a call sheet.

Lexi was last seen in September of this year, when Kristina was reunited with her very-much-alive father, Sonny Corinthos.

Kristina’s last few storylines involved becoming involved in the Dawn of Day cult and falling in love with her professor, Parker, played by Ashley Jones.

No word yet on when Ainsworth will be back on air on GH, but stay tuned!

Do you hope Lexi is back for a run of story? What would you like to see happen to Kristina next? Comment below.

Given the timing, I’m guessing Kristina will show up for a few episodes over the Hellidays and then (sadly) disappear for several months again.

It’s really sad that they can’t write for her. If all the recent Corinthos family drama didn’t get her any extra airtime, maybe the recent resurgence of all things Cassadine might require her presence?

I always find it odd when characters are written off because of lack of story. Christina is a Corinthos and a Cassadine and gets less screen time than her 1/2 sister Donna? Creativity is lacking when you can’t write for a character – especially on a soap where ANYTHING can happen!

And how about the problem that General Hospital has ALWAYS had finding scenes for the police commissioner and chief of police? 90% of the airtime is given over to a crime family, and there’s nothing for Mac Scorpio to do. As lame as Commissioner Ashford was, at least she had some story. I remember the same fate befalling the wonderful John Reilly when Sean Donely succeeded Anna as the PC of PC.

I only wish this meant General Hospital realized their mistake in not continuing the #Pristina S/L & gets Ashley Jones! Those 2 were dynamite & told a realistic story of what these couples face in trying to live with their choices. Those fans pleaded with #GH to keep the story going & fans worldwide started watching #GH. Ashley was the best thing that happened to GH, she & Lexi are made to work together! Undeniable chemistry Ashley was outstanding as Parker yet treated poorly by the lack of screen time I would watch again if Ashley went back to resume… Read more »

Mary,
Sorry, but I disagree. While Ashley is great as Bridget on B&B, I felt she was way too old for Christina. Where Chrissy is younger and tiny, Ashley toward over her,more like the professor and mentor she was.Even Alexis said something to that effect.Also it made Allison look unattractive with that age and size difference.

Good to have her back. Hopefully they have a story. Why not pair her with Terri?

That would be most interesting! I would to learn more of Terri’s life. GH could do a lot of positive insight with this.

I’m with Brian. I think Terri is a kick, with a goofy sense of humor and I love her girl power get-togethers with Portia and Elizabeth. I smile whenever Terri is on, as opposed to wincing as I do with Michael.

Friday’s show was kind of interesting with Alex wanting to take Harmony home with her, than remembering the woman had made Krissi’s life hell while at Dawn Of Day.
I thought they seemed interested in each other before Alex was released and I think this meeting yesterday will not be the last

Violet, we’re in synch AGAIN. I’m really starting to like Harmony and Alexis needs a friend since Diane is only on a few days per year. I’m sure bossy, judgmental hypocrite Carly will object to Harmony visiting Wiley. She’s gotten rid of grandma Nina, so now she can eliminate Wiley’s adopted grandma too. That leaves her free to corrupt Wiley and turn him into Michael II — a repulsive, selfish, serial womanizer with no access to shampoo.

There’s also the fact that the Alexis & Diane friendship seemed to be centered around lawyering & drinking, and Alexis isn’t doing either of those anymore.

Though she really should go back to the lawyering part. Whomever sends Heiny back to Hell is going to need a good lawyer right away.

You never know. With so many people having motives, it may never be revealed who did him in. A lot will love to take credit. Iam sick of waiting , they have dragged this out way too long.

I think it will be more than friendship, they are both off men for now anyway. Can’t wait for Nina’s trial. I think some good stuff will come out about Sonny and Nina. Everyone seems to know the truth about those two, except Carly that is. Hopefully she will be enlightened at long last. I think she deserves the truth, ha, ha.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

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.
