Looks like the beloved Emily Quartermaine is coming back in ghost form to General Hospital, which means Daytime Emmy winner Natalia Livingston will be making a return to the ABC soap opera!

According to the news from Soaps She Knows.com, A rep for Livingston reported  today that the actress will be returning and will be seen in two upcoming episodes!

Emily was last seen during General Hospital’s 50th anniversary celebration episode in early April of 2013, when Tracy (Jane Elliot) and Monica (Leslie Charleson) were both seeing the deceased Alan (Stuart Damon) and Emily!

So, who will have visions of Emily this time? How will her return be worked in the story? Do you wish GH had never killed off the character of Emily?  Let us know!

They definitely should not have killed her, or Alan, or Georgie, or Tony Jones or…the list goes on. GH has never really recovered for me.

NL’s Emily was not a favorite character of mine by a long shot–the Sonny/Emily pairing turned my stomach–but IMO it was a huge mistake killing her off. The Qs are such a sad shadow of what they once were, which was a truly classic soap family.

ITA, and the pairing with her and Sonny was gross. Sonny is half her age, when her character was 11 he was in his late 20s- early 30s and Jason’s kid sister. I’m glad after they broke them up it was never discussed again as if it didn’t happen. The writes at that time needed to be slapped in the face for that mess!

Love her – NO they should have never killed her off.

Let her come back as Nina…who is later revealed as Emilys long lost twin sister…maybe she appears to Tracy to help her find Luke or to A.J. and Monica to help prove he is innocent in Connies death(i heared Connie is coming back somehow)

Same here Louisa I don’t know what the writers or big wigs at GH were thinking when they killed off legacy characters (yes I include Georgie and Emily since they are legacy children albeit Emily was adopted) you just don’t kill off that many characters in a “forever” way. Sure there are ways to bring them back from the dead and soap opera fans will bat a few eyes but I prefer the way Jason died with no body easier to bring a character back from the dead that way.

Im not a huge fan of coming back from the dead stories.. but as always there are exceptions.. one would be Emily..I feel Elizabeth and Nicholas need her back.

Emily and Nicholas were in love; Elizabeth and Nicholas were in love. Don’t see the ol’ threesome working…as just a friendship anymore.

They should have never killed her off and maybe they could find some way to bring her back from the dead. If they can’t then she could come back as a different person just like Roger, Michael, and Kristen.

Yes, GH should never have offed such an important character. She was the new heart of the Quartermaine family and they just tossed her aside. Sad. Wish they would just say Helena has had her locked up some where all these years.

maybe she comes back to give Nicolas advice when he’s torn over Brit lying about the baby…or…he talks to her in his grief/angst. or, maybe…to comfort AJ or give him clues to the truth.

as for Emily…I liked her but didn’t like the way she favored Jason over AJ. Aj’s a sore topic for me; I always felt frustration at the way they treat this particular character.

rebecca1

aha! maybe Franco dies…and Roger comes back as the new Jason! it turns out that he and Jason really are twins…and whoever gives him a new face decides to make him a Franco-lookalike. (Maybe Emily comes back for Jason.)

huh!

totally agree with Louisa. There are so many characters that they kill off and bring back. But certain characters like Emily and Alan were final. They should not have been killed off.

Sharonda

Didn’t AJ die at the hospital…we all thought that was final, and we were wrong. I say kill off Kiki, Silas, Rafe, Franco, Sabrina. They are not needed and their deaths should be FINAL. 🙂

Aw c’mon….Silas and Franco aren’t THAT bad! As for the others….yes, yes, and MOST DEFINITELY, YES!!!!! (Although I really feel for KA for having such a dud character to portray….)

I am so excited to see NL(Emily) return even if it is brief… GH should have never killed the character and it seems as if they regret it or they wouldn’t be bringing her back again.. Hopefully this is the start of a is Emily really “dead” story…

Natalia has returned to GH as Emily’s ghost and as Emily’s long, lost, unknown twin sister, Rebecca. Neither return was successful. I liked Emily altho she suffered from soap saintdom syndrome. It’s too bad. The Quartermaine family needs some strength and warm bodies. Don’t take that to be a desire for the return of Ned and Dillon. I’d rather have a recast Jason than have more people around to do Tracy’s dirty work.

Shay

Well, they can begin by strengthening AJ’s character and presence! He’s ready and available….use him!!!! Then delve into the Quartermaine family vault….where’s Celia and her Grant? And Jimmy Lee Holt???? They were a huge part of GH history and yet there is never any mention of them????

I have been very disappointed in what has been AJ’s return. He should have learned something in the years that he was gone, but so far there hasn’t been any indication that he has. I want a strengthening of the Quartermaine family and like you I see no reason why AJ cannot be the beginning of it. I am really tired of Tracy’s acid tongue. It is a wonder someone hasn’t put a period to her existence. Why not bring back Jimmy Lee? He would be middle-aged now but that doesn’t mean he can’t bring the drama. He and AJ… Read more »

Excellent points, EP….I, too, have been dismayed at AJ’s treatment since his return…there was an excellent opportunity for him to be a better, wiser man this time around, and that chance was quickly squandered for some cheap thrill storylines that led SK almost to the point of no return for his character….I find this particularly disappointing since he is such a fine example of that traditional type of leading man soap star…classically handsome and aristocratic in bearing. I know I am probably in the minority, but all these scruffy new guys and their constant shirtless scenes that they feature on… Read more »

Glad to see her back on the show although briefly..I am super excited that Connie/Kate, the talented Kelly Sullivan, will also be coming back and make some ghostly appearances with AJ Q. Since the show is SOO over the top, why not bring back these two lovely and talented actresses back, and NOT ghosts, especially Ms Sullivan!!!

When Sparkle Pony and Emily meet, they will eye ball each other up and down like when Hayley Mills played twins.

Funny, I was just thinking that the last thing we need is to get this one back, since her saccharin-sweet Emily was formerly the most annoying sanguine character that GH had….until Soppy came on the scene, that is! She definitely makes NL almost bearable by comparison….thankfully, they won’t be scene-sharing, as it could possibly send the viewers into sugar-shock. That being said, I shed no tears for Emily when she was killed off, and thus her repeated ghostly visits have not been a welcome sight for me.

I loved her and nikolas! They were adorable and a sweet couple. I remember crying when she got killed off, and balling as nikolas mourned her. Then they tried the Rebecca thing and that sucked! I hope it’s a special return! She’s a great actress and I read that she’d love to come back in one of those 50th anniversary articles… If others can be resurrected why not her? GH stinks right now nd with Robin leaving/ gone we need a sincere love story! There’s not one special , loving couple right now that we can root for and feel… Read more »

I miss emily so much. There were rumors 2 months ago, that emily and Alan Quartermaine are alive. I hope stuart damon is coming back to gh, as alan. maybe Jerry jax has alan and emily locked in a room. At least, we get to see emily’s ghost. Natalia is a wonderful actress, and she is a pretty woman too.

As a MASSIVE Nikolas & Emily fan this is the best news I have heard in what seems like forever!! Still disgusted over GH killing off Emily! There has been NO comparison whatsoevet since NL left the show. GH needs to get it together. They bring others back from the dead MULTIPLE times so what are they waiting for? Bringing her back could totally renew faith in the show. Quit bringing her back as a ghost and make it the real thing!!!

The death of Emily never paid off in story and to have her back as some other chick was disrespectful. So no she Should have never been killed her off!

I loved the character of Emily. When they killed her off the show I lost interest and stopped watching all together. Natalia brought such beauty and innocents to the show with a touch of class. Something that the soaps are definitely lacking now days. The character needs to be brought back on a permanent basis so it can regain the innocents and class she brought to the show.

Loved the Emily character. Should never have taken her off.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
