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.

Why can’t Helena have her frozen?

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)

emily’s long lost twin has come and gone.

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.

Run NL! Run! Stay away from the hot mess that is GH!

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.

rebecca1
rebecca1

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
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!

Debbie

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
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. 🙂

Shay

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….)

Kim
Kim

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
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????

Engrady Pind

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 could contrive to oust Tracy from ELQ.

Shay
Shay

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 “Cartini’s” watch just don’t impress me…they look interchangeable and most have no personality and little in the way of acting skills….simply boring!!! As for the Quartermaine clan, I totally agree with you about Tracy….her bitter banter wore thin eons ago….she has no class or oomph anymore, just the same old, same old taunts for her favorite punching bags. And her so-called romance with Luke is simply pathetic…as if he is such a prize! Jimmy Lee Holt could provide a real shot of adrenaline to the old Q homestead, and even if Steve Bond is not available, a recast could work…there are plenty of soap vets in his age category that are ready and available to fill the role. I would love to see Celia again, too. And what ever happened to Grant? Was he ultimately redeemed or did he return to his native-born evil self? Good question…..

Love her!!! Happy to have her back on for however long she will be on! Of course I wish they had not killed Emily off!!!

I’ll take her back even as Rebecca !

Omar

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!!!

Harry

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

Shay

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 good about.
I’d like to see Sam with Patrick!,

Sharonda

Nicholas and Gia were better as a couple I thought. They should bring Gia back-the original one.

I want all the Quartermaines back, including the much-too-frequently MIA Monica Quartermaine!

Yeah, I though she would have been freeze dried and Jason would have rescued her down the road and brought her back to PC.

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!

of course I wish they had never killed her off…she was the best, next to Jason

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.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Courtesy/ABC

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

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.

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
