Well I hope it’s a real return and not just a guest shot. I’d like to see his great actors’ chemistry with Michelle Stafford again and, maybe, a renewed flirtation with Lily, who needs to ditch that albatross called Billy. I hope Michael will ditch that facial hair also. Why so many great-looking men want to hide their faces or look prematurely gray is a mystery to me. Just because it worked for Clooney doesn’t mean everyone needs to do it.

Losing the beard will make Me. G look younger next to the ever youthful Ms. Stafford. It will be good for Daniel to return. I am hoping for some solid storytelling now that families are being restored.

Soaphound…So glad you mentioned men and facial hair. Way too much of it going on. Everywhere. Especially the big, scruffy beards a lot of guys are wearing. Also, I’m not familiar with Michael as Daniel. But anything to distract Phyllis from the Diane obsession would be welcome. She should have never sold the hotel.

Put him with Cassi’ s twin Mariah! Messa need a serious story push. I ve been ffwd them for a years now.

Still waiting for Josh Griffith to be put to pasture. Geez. What does it take to get a writer fired. Mal Young lasted a year and I comparison he was light years ahead the current crap

So he is coming to the wedding, maybe he will have four or five lines of dialog at the wedding. Bet his daughter won’t appear…

I love Michael and have been hoping for a return. I wonder how old his daughter Lucy will be upon re-entry to GC. It would be nice to have Lily and him reconnect, especially since it looks like they are developing a triangle with Chelsea and Victoria for Billy and his two biological children. Speaking of triangles, how many women have Nick and Adam now shared???

I’m with you on this, Margherita. And I’ve now lost all lingering respect for Nick Newman. How low can you sink? I could (though I’m not sure I do) forgive Sally for being vulnerable and/or on the rebound; Nick has no such excuse. And Adam has been reaching out to him in such a touching way. And still, this will be ANOTHER case of Adam being held to one standard and Nick another, namely instant absolution. I’m disgusted by this predictable, sordid turn of events because the current storytelling is of such “quick thrill”, no imagination lack of quality. But I am UP TO HERE with Nick and supercilious Victoria trashing Adam. I say check your own trash before dumping on your brother again!

Yes! Such poor storytelling
Nick and Adam since Josh ‘ the hack’ Griffith took over have been on a personality merrigoround
Nick has done a 180 and turned into a slick business tycoon who ruthlessly sleeps with his bros ex and his daughters archenemies! Where is Summer in this equation?!
Sharon , inwhich we were teased a reunion?!
I thought Nick was done with Newman and he and Adam made ammends?!
I d much rather see Adam and Nick team up against ol mustache
But Josh Griffith is hopeless here asusual
Garbage turn of events

Glad he’s coming back. Maybe when Billy hooks up with Chelsea,Daniel will be around to pick up the pieces with Lily.


Hope he comes back and takes his horrible mother back with him. Diane will probably turn out as bad as everyone thinks she is, but I hope she really takes down RED before she goes.That woman has got to be the nastiest thing that ever hit Y&R.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Adam J. Harrington Weighs-in On John and Carly, and How it’s ‘Starting to Get Very Complicated”

On recent episodes of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) came to John “Jagger” Cates (Adam Harrington) rescue as he was beaten down in an assault. Carly put on her “nurses cap,” sort of speak, and got John to his hotel room and watched over to him, to make sure he didn’t lose consciousness.

GH fans also got their first glimpse of what may be a new romance for Carly, if she and John continue to bond.  If John and Carly were to have a relationship, it would certainly have a ripple effect with Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny (Maurice Benard).

Adam J. Harrington shared his view on the scenes and what might be next between the two. Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Harrington shared, “I thought it was written in a way where there’s an understanding and a respect between them both. I don’t think there was any moment where she was not aware that he’s an FBI agent, and there was no moment that he wasn’t aware of her history and relationship to other people in the town. I really liked it. I was really looking forward to shooting it with Laura and we had a really nice time shooting it.”

When Carly and John part ways, it seems there were some romantic sparks, as Harrington puts it, “Isn’t that interesting that sometimes with people, the one moment they actually show how they feel is when they know there’s an escape hatch. They know they’re about to walk away. So, it’s almost safe in that moment to do it. I thought that was really special about how (the writers) handled John and Carly. Even the music in that scene was beautifully done.”

Where is this all heading? Conflict! Internally and professionally, and as Adam explains, “Who Carly was to John on paper as just a tool to be used as bait is starting to get very complicated.”

What would you think of a John and Carly pairing? Would you prefer him with Anna, or neither of them? Let us know via the comment section and take our poll below.
