Michael Saucedo (pictured here with wife, Rebecca Herbst), who ABC confirmed is heading back to General Hospital has been overwhelmed by the response from fans on the return of his character of Juan Santiago who has been off the canvas for almost 13 years!

To acknowledge all of the love and show of support from GH fans, Saucedo took to his Twitter account where he related:  “WOW! Thank you, thank you for all of the wonderfully kind comments I have received about my return to General Hospital. It has been torture sitting on this secret for the last few weeks. To say I’m excited would be an understatement. @valentinifrank and @carlivatiron – it’s an honor to be a part of a show that means so much to so many. Thank you for thinking of me. #GH50 #Gratitude

Look for Saucedo show up on the canvas sometime in November!  We have an idea of what brings him back to the show, do you?  And, what about pairing Juan with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)?  Let us know your thoughts!

Maybe for Sabrina’s wedding? Which hopefully in true soap fashion will be interrupted by Robin!!

An interrupted wedding is too predictable…i want Robin to show up but before she can reveal herself she is captured by Faison and Dr.O and returned to Cassidine Island…I want Patrick and Sabrina to wed without any interuption…they go on a honeymoon…Patrick and Sabrina are on a boat that becomes shipwrecked and the newlyweds find they are on what they first believe is a deserted island but it turns out to be Cassidine Island where they then finally come face-to-face with Robin and Jerry Jaxs other hostages…this would be more exciting and suspenseful than another predictable wedding interuption…of course they’ll… Read more »

I think his response was great and so appreciative of the fans! Glad to see him back!!! Would love to see him with Liz if the story line makes sense!

Juan with Elizabeth was my first thought! Will be so cool for their children to see them on screen together!

Other than a momentary “Hi” scene I’m sure we won’t see Becky. This writing regime has little use for the character of Liz and can’t stop talking about her “baggage” as an excuse. Liz has no more baggage than any other character on the screen and yet she is the only one they can’t seem to write a story for. I’m glad that Michael is back. But I am sure that since Juan is connected with Sabrina, I’m sure he will get way more airtime than his extremely popular, yet constantly undervalued wife.

Liz has become todays version of Jessie Brewer…stands behind a nurses counter with very little to do but listen to other peoples problems and give advice…i really liked her with A.J.

i agree with you about this regime, i’m so dissappointed that liz isn’t a major character, actress Rebeca Herbts is so beautifull, you would think all the men on the show would be falling for her or something yet, nothing. i’m hoping she get put with Nicolas, and i don’t mind her with a.j but this regime needs to stop with the lame excuses and put her front and center.

This 70 year old Grandma is thrilled to have Michael back on the show. Now is the time for the writers to get their act together and spin a compelling storyline for Elizabeth and Juan. Becky has many frustrated fans who are tired of her being put on the backburner, and what better way to correct this than to put her front and center with her handsome real life hubby!

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Meanwhile, Lane took to her Twitter account to express: “Honored to fill some big, wildly talented shoes and step in as the fierce and loving Brook Lynn Quartermaine.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?
