Circle next Friday December 14th for the return of Lynn Herring as the one and only Lucy Coe to General Hospital!  Herring’s last visit to Port Charles was over eight and half years ago when Lucy attended Lila Quartermaine’s funeral.  This time, Lucy is summoned to town for her expertise on the Nurses Ball!

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Herring reveals her shock and the happy surprise that she was asked back to General Hospital at this time.  She also noted how many great things she had been told about GH’s latest creative team of executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati, especially from her long time friends and GH co-stars Tony Geary (Luke) and Jane Elliot (Tracy)!

Lynn admitted she was completely blown away by the handle the writing team has on her one of a kind character stating: “The voice the writers gave Lucy in the 90’s was pretty specific.  Frank Valentini said ‘I know you haven’t done this in awhile but you have to understand, Ron Carlivati is truly a fans of that time period and those characters and he really does get it!’Of course, until you see it on the page, you’re never sure, but when I read the first show, I was in awe. The script writers and the outline writers and Ron, obviously, all got it, which is a gift in itself – not just to get to go back, but to have some funny oneliners and the reactions of the other characters to Lucy!”

So are you excited for the return of Lynn Herring?  And how the writers look to be treating her like the Lucy of old? Let us know!

SO excited for Lucy’s return! 😀 😀 😀 She is one of my all time faves & if she’s written like she was in the 90’s, even better! Looking forward to seeing her get mixed up with the Nurses Ball again & it’ll be interesting to see how she reconnects with some longtime characters & how the newer characters to the canvas will react to her. Another good decision by Frank Valentini & Ron Carlivati.

I’ve loved all the returns, especially Anna and Robert, but I’m surprised to find that I’m more excited about Lucy returning than even them. l’m so glad Lynn is coming back with Ron writing for her character.

So glad that GH is bringing back our favorite characters of the 80’s and 90’s. Anna and Robert were always a favorite of mine. I want to see the Scorpios reunited and hope that Anna falls back in love with Robert. Duke is a nice guy, but have always felt the chemistry between Robert and Anna. Also glad to have Lucy back. She is a lot of fun and should bring more vitality back to the show.

I’m so ecstatic right now. I’ve waited a decade for GH to be at least watchable again. Frank and Ron have made GH exceed my expectations….it’s that good! The previous regime had no regard for GH history OR its beloved and iconic characters. To have Felicia back, the Q’s a major force again, juicy Lucy returning, and miracle of miracles, I actually love the character of Michael. It looks like ABC is taking notice. Sure, what has replaced the soaps are ratings bombs but GH has actually increased its once anemic ratings. I’m so proud of everybody at GH. I’m back to watching everyday and you can’t get a better compliment than that!

It would be nice if Lucy addressed her absence during Tony’s funeral.

I met Lynn Herring at a Soap Event back in 2003.She was one of the nicest soap stars Iever met. Actually she was THE NICEST! while the handlers of the event tried to move things along she was patient and genuinely expressed interest in all her fans. I LOVE LUCY (and Lynn)

Definitely looking forward to the return of Lucy Coe, and the humor she brings, as well as the sweet, tender side of her, both of which are played briilliantly by Lynn Herring. I have no doubt that Frank, Ron and all other writers will have her fittng right in.

I’ve always loved Lucy and thought her character was a big part of the General Hospital family. Good to see her coming back, now let’s work on letting her stay!

Happy for her return and how refreshing that Ron Carlivati “gets” her character. I wish more writers stayed true to form. I would love to see her mix it up with Roger Howarth who I think is just brilliant! 🙂

Sadly I started watching GH only after Sonny and Brenda were being put together. I did, however, watch PORT CHARLES when the show was facing the ax and they did the arcs (I think I started right before Tainted Love). I remember Sigmund, Lucy’s duck or goose. Whatever happened to him? What happened to Lucy and Doc? I remember Lucy was with someone else and Doc was with the other woman (Julie Pinson). I guess I only remember Rafe and Allison riding off together, but nothing else.

I remember the 90s Lucy too. Very flighty, but a great heart.

Like everyone else,I am absolutely THRILLED not only about Lynn Herring’s reurn,but the return of the Nurses Ball! I only hope that Lucy will be hosting the event again,not just consulting-it would be hilarious if she ended up in her underwear onstage again!!

I am thrilled she’s back! I hope Kevin is not too far behind her, because Jon was wonderful on this show as well.

I hope Lucy will recognize John and Sam as Caleb and Livvie, otherwise the continuity’s all screwed up. Besides, them feeling such a connection is totally tied into the characters they played on Port Charles.

HURRAY!!!!!!!!! I am soooooooo excited to learn that Lynn Herrring is returning to GH – I’ve been waiting since Port Chuck went off the air – now we’ll REALLY have some fun. Lynn is a fabulous actor – her comedic timing is flawless. I’m so happy, I could jump for joy-
Thank you, Frank and Ron, I know you’ll give her a great storyline – it’s just wonderful thank you, thank you, thank you! Oh, and did I remember to say thank you??

Bringing Lynn Herring back is a good step in the right direction for the series. Since seeing her, she’s already a nice light and joy to have on the series. I hope she sticks around.

I am happy about her return, but a little confuused as to what happened to the person who played Kevin and how they will explain about him not returning. I think I heard on of the characters saying that Kevin got an aneyrism after hitting his head on the faucet in the bathtub and that he died, and maybe that is why Lucy is going nuts and hallucinating and that the other soap opera was part of her hallucination, is that how they are explaining his abscence. Maybe he planned to come back, but because of living in New York and disaster funds for Hurricane Sandy had not been decided, maybe he could not come back?

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?
