Next Week Jon Lindstrom Returns To GH! How Will Kevin React When He Sees The Peeps From "Port Charles"?

And as the big returns keep coming to General Hospital, looks like there is more in store paying homage and somehow connecting the stories of the characters and actors currently on the GH canvas that were once part of the vampire saga of its spin-off Port Charles!  Next week Jon Lindstrom makes his return to the ABC soap as Kevin Collins to help his troubled estranged wife Lucy Coe! And according to this week’s issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Lindstrom relates that they are going to address the history that he and Kelly Monaco’s Sam (who was Kevin’s daughter Livvie  on PC) have and Michael Easton, presently John (who was Caleb the Vampire on PC) have somehow!

Lindstrom stated, “We can”t say that General Hospital and Port Charles become overwhelmed with vampires, because they don’t.  But there is some real concern and some questions and confusion and mistaken identity and all those things make for good plotting.  It’s really how does the story fit that story and all the baggage that comes back with people like Lynn Herring (Lucy) and me and Michael Easton and Kelly?”

In addition, Jimmy Deshler is coming to General Hospital on January 30th in the new role of Rafe who is rumored to wind up being revealed as the son of PC’s Alison Barrington and Caleb Morley!  However, the character of Rafe could be a spoiler in the romance of Molly (Haley Pullos) and TJ (Tequan Richmond), according to SOD!

So soapers, what do you think should be done with the characters of Lucy, Kevin, Sam and John in regards to their real and mistaken identities? If Michael Easton could no longer play John McBain, because McBain belongs to One Life to Live, would GH dare make him Caleb?  And what do you think about the edition of Deshler to the mix? Weigh-in!

I agree Paula.
I only watched Port Charles a handful of times – I just couldn’t get into the whole vampire storyline.
I can buy John and Sam feeling a certain “comfortable familiarity” with each other – but lets not revisit the vampire years of PC.
Personally I think it would be a ratings disaster.

There were vampires in Port Charles. Its a fact. Lucy isn’t crazy. She is a vampire slayer, like her cousin Rafe Covich who also died and came back as an angel. Kevin knows this. Sam looks like Livvie, John looks like Caleb and Duke looks like Joshua Temple (and Greg Madden). Kevin can come back to Port Charles and convince Lucy that its a case of mistaken identity but he can’t deny what actually happened and i hope that’s not what’s going to happen. My understanding is that ABC is trying to work out a deal where Todd, Starr and… Read more »

Do you know how silly that sounds. Permanently Cure him of Vampire ism????? Correct me if I am wrong but the only “cure” is a stake thru the heart…..There is an article out about ME and the others are going back to OLTL as their characters, PP does not have to work with ABC and let them characters go back, and i hope they don’t! Let’s go with your theory, Caleb masqueraded as John, so what then Natalie fell in love with a Vampire? How did John and Natalie have Little Liam then? He is a Vampire but for years… Read more »

OK clearly you never watched Port Charles or you wouldn’t have posted this reply to me. Caleb was CURED OF VAMPIRISM at one point. There was a hot spring under the city that cured not only caleb but some other vampires as well. So according to Port Charles Vampire Lore, yes Caleb can be cured and become human again. and no I’m not saying that John McBain on One Life to Live was Caleb, I’m saying that if Michael Easton wants to stay on GH and Prospect Park won’t let him be McBain there anymore, then they could say he… Read more »

First of all, yes soaps are not real but come on now at least be some what accurate in your writing! A Vampire can not be “cured with a dip in a hot spring under the city”. Let’s go with your theory, Where has John McBain been all this time then? Starr was John’s step daughter I am sure she would know that John was not himself, since to impersonate someone you have to know that person, But let me guess they can say that the hot spring that “cured” him gave him powers of being able to masquerade as… Read more »

It doesn’t matter how it sounds to you – Alan is right – this is how the storyline was written on PC and since you didn’t watch the show, it doesn’t make sense that you would say someone who watched it is in accurate. PC has been off the air for at least 10 years. If Caleb was cured, then he moved to Llanview to become John McBain which is when the actor first went to OLTL. Very simple. As far as vampires not having kids, well Caleb made one with Allison so he could definitely have one with Natalie.… Read more »

also I am VERY happy to see the show list on the right and next to AMC and OLTL it doesn’t say RIP anymore 🙂 I’m not a Guiding Light or As the World Turns fan myself but for those who are i hope Prospect Park revives them too in time if everything works out. lol i wouldn’t mind seeing Loving, Ryan’s Hope or Dark Shadows come back as well!! or Port Charles with ALL of the vampires very very real!!!!

I agree with johanna! I want my Jolie back, hate the fact that ME is contracted to ABC but looks like John McBain will go back to Llanview to Natalie. I never watched Port Charles except on you tube to see why everyone liked ME and KM together-NOT IMPRESSED! I’m probably just to use to ME & MA as my favorite soap couple (John/Natalie) since 2003. Lots of history there. Will miss him on OLTL, but GH has nothing for me now so looking forward to PP version. Wouldn’t watch GH for sure if they went back to vampires!

I too want my Jolie back maybe ME can do double duty/bicoastal work…John on the East coast and Caleb on the West. Never liked him wiith KM but at least we woud have our Jolie back.

I’m with the both of you’s! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE MY JOLIE! I read an article that ME & KA are going back to OLTL as John and Starr and that RH is the hold out because he wants to come back but for a shorter time than planned, and since Todd is owned by PP he will not be leaving OLTL as Todd. I can not wait to see my ALL TIME FAV Soap couple Jolie!!!!

Oh God I hope the vampire story was all a dream and a psychic experience of Lucys

I am not a vampire fan… but nods back to PC and deja vue type moments are great… if handled well. See the opportunity around John Mcabain if Eason’s McBain character has to be OLTL exclusively.

I loved this storyline back when it was on PC. However, I am quite upset to hear they are having another actor come in to play Rafe. Why not have Brian Gaskill, the original Rafe?

i think this is Rafe Jr. Allison Barrington’s son that they are bringing to GH.

I have no problem with Michael staying on as Caleb, because I loved the vampire story on PC. I’ve wanted Allison Barrington on the show for awhile too, so having her son on will hopeful bring her to town…And I sort of like the idea of Molly having choices.

I love GH, but if this vampire storyline keeps going, I’m done watching it. I hated Port Charles because of that storyline. We’re adults (most of us), not preteens – we don’t need vampire stories.

I really hope they do not start with all the vampire stories.GH is my favorite but I cannot stand this vampire thing now.So please stop already.Only adult story lines please!

I never watched GH regularly. However I watched Port Charles religiously. I’m extremely happy that PC characters are coming to GH. I’ve been watching GH purely for the Caleb/vampire storyline. Thank you Cartini for partly reviving one of my favorite soap.

ABC Previews General Hospital’s Halloween Episode

Fight Night will definitely have an impact on the lives of the citizens of Port Charles, on the upcoming Thursday, October 29th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Announced by ABC today, along with primetime’s Dancing with the Stars, The Conners, Supermarket Sweep, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, GH is having some ghoulish goings-on for the trick or treat holiday.

Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”
