Lynn Herring Returning To General Hospital!

Well word on the street was out that General Hospital was looking to resurrect its classic Nurses Ball, especially with Robin believed to be “dead”, that event would become all the more meaningful and drama-filled.  And with that came speculation that Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) would be making a return also! And now via Soap Opera Digest it has been confirmed!

Fan favorite Herring will be reprising her delicious role of Lucy on December 14th, when Lucy is sought out to lend her expertise with the event!  Remember all the wacky episodes where Lucy was in charge and running around trying to keep the Nurses Ball together? Or, from falling apart? Or, from all the last minute emergencies?

Herring’s return is just another fantastic blast from the past, that executive producer Frank Valentini, and head writer, Ron Carlivati, are delivering to long time fans of GH by bringing back some of the beloved vets!

So, are you excited to see Lynn again as Lucy Coe?  Do you like the idea of GH bringing back the Nurses Ball?  Let us know!

Great news! Lynn is greatly missed, she’d be a great addition. However, this sounds very temporary. Hopefully she’ll be asked to stay.

Wow!! Wonder if these are short term stints for Tristan, Sean and Lynn? Big canvas over there GH! Hope there is storytelling for everyone and not just fixtures in PC. Nice to see her back though!!

Yes yes yes!! Nurses Ball… when Sabrina asked why it had been discontinued, I shouted out “because it was too much fun for the regime that took over and ruined this show!” Sorry, my mob-hate knows no end. Anyway, LOVE Lynn Herring… she represents some of the best that this show has ever had to offer. Is she short term or open ended? Not to be a downer, but I hope the presence of so many beloved GH vets isn’t a ‘last hurrah’ for the show. Now that the show is once again watchable, it would be great to enjoy… Read more »

Yes, Andrew. I wonder the same about the “last hurrah”. I’m almost nervous to be excited for vets to return for this reason. I want them back soooooo badly and not just for a 1-7 day brief visit. More Qs! Bobbie! Laura! Robert!

Shut the front door. I could not be more estactic! Now just bring back Jackie Zeaman. Her character, Bobbi, and Lucy duke it out a few times in the past. We need a classic cat fight.

Emily
Guest

Yes, and I would love to see how they would explain Bobbi’s absence during Joslyns illness, Luke’s intervention, the water contamination, etc… Because she just left her shift one day & was (to the best of my memory) never scene or mentioned again.

I love that FV and RC are bring back in so many of the loved vets, even if for a limited time, it is awesome to see them again..
I wish there were a list of all the appearance and or longer term favorites vets that have been brought back since FV and RC took over., there are many. also the new characters created this past year.
And keeping with GH tradition the Nurses Ball will once again be enjoyed!!
I am totally loving GH It truly is alive and thriving under the new team of FV and RC!!

YEAH TO BOTH! I was wondering if the Nurses Ball would come back, especially after Emma brought out the photo album. I just went ‘ahhh. i miss Lucy…’ when they showed her photo.

would be great if Robin crawled in at the Ball… or even if she showed up backstage and Lucy could scream and think she was seeing Robin’s ghost rather than the real thing! 😀

This is AWESOME news!!! I always felt that the JFP regime gave Lynn the shaft. It was widely reported in the soap press that if spin-off Port Charles failed, that Lynn Herring and Jon Lindstrom would have guaranteed jobs back at the mother ship, GH. That was not honoured when PC was cancelled. I never liked or “got” the character of Lucy until Claire Labine wrote the show, and scripted the best storyline possibly in all of soap history…BJ’s heart transplant into Maxie. Lucy Coe, for the first time in her cartoonish existence, became a real flesh and blood character.… Read more »

Wondering if she’s on contract, or recurring, or just a one or two episode deal. I hope she’s back for a long term story line. Also, for the love of soaps, bring back Jackie Zeman!! Can’t get over how good GH has been since Frank & Ron took over. They really know how to put together a good soap.

I hate to be a party pooper because I love me some Lynn Herring but December? Wasn’t this held every year for about six or seven years in a row in June?

The Nurses Ball was centered around the Day of Compassion.

the Day of Compassion was an annual tv event from 93-98 – that started on OLTL with the Billy Douglas storyline. The creator of the Day was so moved by that OLTL storyline, that he contacted the producers of all ten daytime dramas, suggesting that on June 21, their shows mention AIDS and HIV in some way.

World’s Aids Day is December 1 – that is global and started in 1988.

Hey, I’ll take The Nurses Ball in any month I can get it! December, June, August, March, whatever. I used to love watching them so much. There was an awful lot of hidden talent on that show that shined during The Ball.

I definitely can empathize with how you feel. I’m not quiet ready to tell Frank Valentini thank you yet, but I’m able to tweet him without telling him I can’t stand him, so I guess I’m on my way, LOL baby steps, right? It will be great to have Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) back on. She is truly one of a kind.

I didn’t watch GH with her on it before, but I did catch a few episodes of PC and liked her there. GH is so good right now it’s crazy! I am sure this will only add more dynamic to an already great show. How long is she staying?

This is awesome news and hopefully another step in thr right direction! GH is getting as good as ever; have missed the Nurse’s Ball along with the Christmas story that Steve, and then Allen, read to the children every year That too would be a great addition/comeback!

This is the best GH news ever. Lucy Coe is my have GH character ever, and I can’t wait to have her back. The only thing to top it is if she stays on the show for a while. Lynn Herring as Lucy Coe always gave the show comedy, sex and sparkle, and GH could use that. (I even named one of my cats after Lucy.)

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alex Is ‘Wicked’ To Anna; Franco Receives Devastating Diagnosis

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a clever play on the Broadway smash hit musical, Wicked, but no there was no singing, instead we had the always brilliant Finola Hughes, playing the good witch and the bad witch, in the form of portraying twin sisters, Anna and Alex as Halloween night comes to Port Charles.

In story, Anna, who is dressed for Halloween in white as a good witch, reads the report in front of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that proves that Faison did not have the marker for RA (rheumatoid arthritis) which then proves that since she did not have it, nor Faison, that Alex is the biological mother of Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

All this time, as Anna says, she blamed herself for being with Faison only to find out that was a complete lie.  Anna becomes so incensed by all of Alex’s machinations that she smashes a glass just as the power goes out.  Valentin tells Anna he was also used by her sister where Peter was concerned.  Anna questions whether she should warn Peter, that Alex might be after him and his unborn child with Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Valentin is convinced they need to get rid of Alex, before she does something to them.

 

Anna does decide Peter should show know the truth, as Valentin leaves to find out Alex’s whereabouts.  When the lights come back on at Anna’s, she is clubbed over the head by Alex who is dressed in black as a bad witch. Later, when kids come to trick-or-treat at Anna’s, she has switched places with her sister offering the kid’s candy after stashing Anna away in the basement and most-likely locking her in there.

Peter is in a whole heap of trouble as he keeps getting creepy phone calls from Helena saying they have “unfinished business”.  We later see a trap is being set by Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) in a secret location.  Sam is using a voice-alternating ‘Pro Tools’ like audio software program to simulate Helena’s voice to spook Peter and to set him up!

Back at the hospital, Terry (Cassandra James) delivers terrible news to Franco (Roger Howarth). His test results show he has a malignant tumor again on the front lobe of his brain, and that it is inoperable and cannot be removed through surgery.  She tells him she wants to run more tests to see what options they have.

When she asks Franco if he has developed any symptoms, he flashes back to the night at Wyndemere when Ava’s (Maura West) painting was revealed and ruined with C077x spray-painted across it and a haunting dream he had, but denies to Terry that he has had any problems as of now.  When she tells him they need to tell Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Franco says he does not want to tell her, or the boys, about this.  When Liz enters the room, Terry and Franco keep mum as to his condition, for now.

Roger Howarth showed once again why he can always be counted on to bring poignant moments to his scenes as Franco.  Be on the lookout for what happens with this story.  In a November sweeps preview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased about the medical crisis that it “may hold the key to unlocking one of the biggest mysteries in Port Charles – something that has been in the works for years.”

So, what did you think will happen next in the Anna/Alex saga?  What do you think will ultimately happen to Franco? Will he become the ‘killer’ Franco again? What could be the mystery the co-head writers are referring to? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

What do you think of GH producing and airing this special episode? Comment below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
