Love Crimes- Lucky finds out and Jonathan Jackson delivers!

We all knew with the return of General Hospital’s Jonathan Jackson after the sad dismissal of Greg Vaughan in the role of Lucky Spencer, that for this Daytime Emmy winner to come  back to the daytime fold, that he would have to have major story fireworks.  Since October of last year, with Jackson’s return, we have witnessed the set-up of the dreamer Lucky pursuing his fair Elizabeth to once again marry him and make a family for the boys.   We have witnessed Luke finding out about the clandestine affair between Elizabeth and Lucky’s half-brother, Nikolas, and we have watched Liz and Nikolas unable to control themselves, even thought they say their affair has to stop.   Well finally on yesterday’s air show, a blind-sided Lucky walks in on his gal Liz and bro’ Nik, half-naked and in the throes of passion.   So what does he do?  He leaves the scene…site unseen! Then, goes back to the Spencer house and demolishes the place!  Liz walks in and Lucky feigns that Luke must have gone on a tirade.   And so it begins…

GH has wisely tantalized viewers with the shift in Lucky (a vengeful one), and Jonathan Jackson is and will play this for all it’s worth.  Jackson’s performance resonated with hurt, portrayal, and that  everything and everyone he believed in shattered in just that one sickening moment.   The fact that Lucky is not letting on to Liz and Nikolas that he knows they have been mutually carrying on an illicit affair and lying to him for months, is a great twist.

High Five to Jackson for today’s airport scene where he asks his brother, Nikolas to stay in Port Charles, all the while hating his guts!   Remember,  Lucky packed his pistol, and then went to Luke’s club, and alone recalled the moment that rocked his world…Nikolas and Elizabeth “doing it”….and what comes next for a recovering addict? Drowning your pain in booze. Kudos to Jackson for showing us the complexities of a man whose entire foundation has come tumbling down around him.   Soap fans and pundits, I am sure will agree, that you can’t wait to see Jackson’s upcoming performances as Lucky hits rock bottom and then has to crawl all the way back to the top.   And, of course, and more delicious then all of that is that we can’t wait to see how Lucky is going to make his brother and his lady love pay for their love crimes.

I had no doubts that Jonathan would be anything but fabulous! He has rejuvenated Lucky Spencer and I’m so glad he has come “home”. He truly has a gift and I can’t wait to see what he does next!!

Lucky Spencer is back folks! JJ is absolutely great and his ability to layer the complexities of who Lucky Spencer is, is just fascinating to watch. We are very “lucky” (pun intended) to have him back. Watch out Elizabeth and Nikolas, Lucky isa comin’! JJ will rock those scenes as well!

Bravo Jonathan! You are showing once again how talented an actor you are. The emotional range shown this week by you had me in tears. I was feeling everything you were feeling as Lucky. Welcome back to the role that is exclusively yours. Can’t wait to see how you get your revenge on Liz and Nicolas……

This is Monday’s take on Jonathan Jackson. He absolutely kicked it out of the park with a performance unlike anything I have ever seen over the years. He ran the gamut of emotions and revealed everything I would have said and more to Elisabeth. I hope he can get custody of his boys. That depends how low he goes into despair. As an actor there is no one who can touch him right now. Great writing and even greater performance Bravo! Bravo!

Welcome back, Jonathan! There can be absolutely no question that he has rejuvenated the ailing Lucky Spencer. The character had all but disappeared from our screens except in name only and then on October 27, 2009, he returned in full glory. Jonathan hasn’t missed a beat. He slipped back into this role easily because it was, quite simply, made for him. He has re-affirmed with each new performance that he IS Lucky Spencer. No one gets this character like he does. No one can bring this character to life like he does! Thank God, he’s home. May he NEVER leave… Read more »

Kimberly McCullough Gives Clues That Have GH Fans Suspecting She Was Back for John Reilly’s Tribute Episode: “Saw Some Old Friends and Reminisced about an Absent Dear One…”

General Hospital fans began taking note of a couple of tweets sent out by beloved longtime cast member, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), over the last 24 hours on the actress-director’s Twitter feed.

First, Kimberly shared: “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for.”

After that she followed it up with, “Here’s a clue – saw some old friends and reminisced about a dear absent one ….”

If you combine that with the fact that Jackie Zeman also tweeted: “Good day shooting @GeneralHospital I was invited back for a special episode today. As Y’all know I rarely post a selfie but it’s been awhile since I’ve had ‘Bobbie’ hair and makeup done. Thank you Karen, Carl, and Ari. Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone,” it would appear that both McCullough and Zeman were back for the upcoming tribute episode to the late John Reilly, who for many years played Sean Donely.

In story, Robin’s parents, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) were very close with Sean, as well.  So it all makes sense that Robin would be part of this as well.

So, if this is proven to be true, are you excited to see Kimberly back on a special episode of GH?  Comment below.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.
