Is there a doctor in the house?  How about two of them?  On their way back to Port Charles are two characters fans love.

First up, returning on the December 27th episodes is Ryan Carnes as Dr. Lucas Jones,  and on the December 28th episode, Kimberly McCullough is back as Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake for another guest appearance.

In addition, as viewers have seen this week Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) has come back to Port Charles to visit Grandma Anna Devane!

Now according to a rep for the series who spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth, both Robin and Emma will be in and out of Port Charles over the next few months.  McCullough tapes these new episodes back in early Decemver.

As for Lucas, shortly after marrying Brad (Parry Shen), he has been gone from the canvas, but since Ryan Carnes is recurring with the show, he can pop up at any time, but he is definitely home for the holidays on the ABC soap opera?

So, are you glad to see Robin, Lucas, and Emma for the holidays on GH? Comment below!

Sadly, I assume Ryan/Lucas’ appearance will be a simple family Xmas appearance and then he’ll disappear again. Hope I’m wrong…

Yes l am truly miss Robin and her hubby and child. Robin would be absolutely good to save Sonny from a lieing Nell so Carly and Sonny can keep their love alive they too are fantastic for each other as their Son Morgan comes home . Nell needs to be caught her cell smashed to pieces so she can’t hurt Sonny and Carly.Bring back all the fantastic couples again. Keep them l miss the original Jason too. Sam and Jason are perfect living family. Alexas needs to pull her shit together and get Julien out of her life. She belongs with Jax

It’ll be great to see both characters back. Ryan has been gone too long.
Can’t wait to see them back.

I do like seeing the characters return every so often. It was good to see Maxies mom this week.. I don’t see her too often and forget her name…. but still good to see her

Her name is Felicia (Kristina Wagner). She and Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) were a huge phenomena years ago.

Where is Mac…

I know, Jim. Mac (and his portrayer John York) were just tossed aside. Horrible. I LOVE Anna (and Finola) but as soon as she became police commissioner they demoted Mac and basically left him in the dust. Totally disrespectful to a charming actor/ character sho was on the show consistently for so many years.

Felicia Scorpio (Mac’s wife). Formerly Felicia Jones (Frisco (Jack Wagner)’s wife and the bio parents of Maxie)

I’ve been wondering that too! Mac was gone for a good while, but then resurfaced to team up with Anna when she was investigating Paul Hornsby. Mac then disappeared when his brother, Robert, made a guest appearance to assist Anna. Then Robert left town, and Mac hasn’t been seen for what seems like a year! Felicia pops up occasionally, but it would be nice to see Mac back in action! Mac was a cop and Felicia a private eye! The possibilities are endless!

I like Lucus..

The 3 (Brad, Felix and Lucus) were really great together.

0OOOH NO..

The writers sole focus are on a handful of characters and not a town full of citizens we all know and love..this is the Altman Passanante soap curse..write the show into a ditch..it’s what they do.

Everytime the writers put more people on the canvas at one time, all you hear is people complaing that there are too many story lines to follow. It doesn’t matter WHO is writing GH, they wrong, no matter what they do.
The constant whining and complaining gets old real fast.

I’m always up for a Robin appearance/return, but Lucas…heck yeah! Hope the writers actually utilize the character. He should be a mainstay in Port Chuck.

Michael Sutton would make an awesome Patrick Drake recast, just sayin’. We do know he has chemistry with Kimberly

Lucas? Never heard of him!

Kill Brad and let Lucas turn to Felix in his grief. Lucas and Felix would make a great couple, then give them some stories. (Maybe Lucas turning to Sonny to find Brad’s killer, against Carly’s advice.)

i hope theres a scene where lucas and carly talk, surely lucas must feel guilty by the fact that his nephew was killed for a bomb meant for his dad? he must have some kind of weird feelings about that if anything…

Always glad when Robin and Emma come for a visit.

I hope Ryan pops up more often. I miss him as Lucas. Lucas should have been at Morgan’s funeral or at Julian’s bedside to shew him out. Dare I hope we see more of Lucas and Brad in 2017?

For that matter, the entire nursing staff has been MIA since GH closed its doors. Only Liz shows up regularly and Amy showed up once. What about Epiphany and Felix? Oh, golly! They were the soul of the 10th floor nurses’ station for so long and now not to see them at all is like gutting the set.

Would to see Lucas anytime, but in an actual storyline. Brad was far more interesting when he was a bad boy creepin’ on straight guys. Let him revert to that, and then the gay guys would all have story possibilities. Gay or straight, happy marriages on soaps are boring.

I miss Epiphany! She was always on everyones butt, including Drake Jr. as she called Patrick. I really miss both characters, although I do see the good Dr. as Billy Abbott on Y&R, but I still miss him as Dr. DRAKE.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
