According to a tweet from his on-screen grandmother, Genie Francis (Laura), fan favorite scene-stealer Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer) is making a return to GH.  While we don’t know if its a short return, or an appearance. or a lengthier stay, it’s always great when Spencer Cassadine shakes up the canvas.

Francis went public with the intel with her tweet that said: “@NicolasJBechtel A little bird told me I might be seeing u soon, well actually a big bird, a really big bird…”

Bechtel had been busy appearingon the Disney Channel series, Stuck in the Middle playing the role of Lewie Diaz, while away from Port Charles.  When we last heard of Spencer, grandma Laura had him sent away to boarding school in Europe following the “death” of his father, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher and last played by Nick Stabile).

Excited to know a Nicolas Bechtel sighting is on its way to your TV screens? Comment below!

His acting really stands out. Nicolas is a true performer.

So happy to hear this! I miss this little big ball of fire. I hope this means the Nicolas isn’t far behind. Anyway, screen time with Spencer’s wise-cracking is always a delight.

Personally, I’d love to see Britt come back all by her lonesome…or btter yet, with “Daddy Faison” in tow! Perhaps Liesl has a birthday coming up and could do with a special surprise visit???

Celia

Oh, yes, Shay! That would be a dream come true….Britt and my hilarious Faison.

Where is the actor who played Nicholas? And the great actor who portrayed him? I thought he was leaving for a short term ?

Glad he’s returning. I like the little guy, he has spunk, is funny and can stir things up. Let’s hope he’s worked into a significant plot, not just in the background.

LOVE this kid! Adorable and talented; hope he returns as many times as his schedule allows.

I want to see little Nick take Charlotte under his wing. She is such a cutey and really has done a good job. I thought I read somewhere that this was her first acting job? Those two would be adorable. Oh, and Spencer will match wits with Valentine, for sure!

Celia
Celia

I like that, Timmmy. I can see Charlotte and Spencer forming a friendship.
I just wonder where Spencer will be living and with whom? With Lulu?
He is the rightful heir of Wyndemere, as far as I am concerned. Nina and Valentin just don’t belong there.

rebecca1

I don’t think he’s coming back full time, CeeCee. But, if he did, until and if a recast Nicolas comes back, he’d probably live with Lulu or Laura.

Timmm

Spencer will probably live in grandma Laura’s car with her!

Probably Laura….if she ever makes it out of that car trunk….perhaps Spencer could join here there!

Dancing with the Stars Juniors

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!

Look for naughty Nelle to be back on all-new episodes of GH, and that means fans will get to see more of Daytime Emmy-winner, Chloe Lanier!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Lanier will be back on-screen after leaving the show In August after two years with the daytime drama series.

When Chloe left the series, Nelle was carted off to prison for her deceptions and crimes, but according to her chat with SOD, she is back because she ‘has some unfinished business with some people.”  Lanier’s return stint starts next week.
