Fans have been asking for this, and now they will finally get to see one of the those most beloved characters of all-time on General Hospital again, when Jackie Zeman returns in the role of Bobbie Spencer!

With Laura, Scotty, Luke and everyone else from the past on the canvas shortly, this is a perfect time for Nurse Bobbie to make an appearance.   The big question is; will we finally get to see some more scenes between Bobbie and her daughter, Carly played by Laura Wright?

Zeman posted a message to her fans on her facebook page just an hour ago about her comeback stating:  “Bobbie Spencer is coming back to GH soon.  I am very happy to be invited and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead.  Thank you so much to all of you for your good wishes and positive thoughts. xoxox”

So what do you think about the news of Jackie returning to GH?  Let us know!

She should come back and have Bobbi in scenes with Carly. I also like to see her and Luke talk fond memories about their late Aunt Ruby. Also i hope the 50th anniversary pays tribute to the late John Bernidino(Steve Hardy)and the late Emily MCloughin
(Jessie Brewer) who were so much part of GH’s rich history.

Amen to that!!! I love that idea! I am so happy she is coming back. WOO-HOO!!

I agree also. I miss all the characters that were on GH in 1970 when I started watching. I’m enjoying seeing some of them again. I can’t wait to see Bobby’s return.

I remember when Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame played on GH as Jessie Brewer’s nephew. It would have been a nice touch to the 50th anniversary show if they were to play tribute to Jessie(played by the late Emily) if they could get Mark to reprise his role of Jessie’s nephew for a least a couple scenes. It would be fun to see a few long forgotten characters that predate the Luke and Laura era for some of old geezers who fondly remember them.

Yes. I agree. John Beradino and Emily McLaughlin need to be recognized as they were on GH from Day 1.

HAHAHAHAHA…She’s always been big busted but I never was sure if they real or not. I am looking forward to Bobbi/Carly, Bobbi/Felcia and Bobbi/Luke scenes!!

Christy

um yeah, they were always there that I remember! ha!

She was a Playboy Bunny at the Playboy Club in early 70’s… they had to fill out those costumes you know! 🙂

Ha Ha Maybe pushup. But they don’t look completely natural at any rate.

gloria

She has had WAAAY too much work done on her face & her chest. She didn’t need to do all that. Glad she is coming back though. I have always thought GH dropped the ball by not developing a relationship between her & Carly & Carly’s kids-along with Luke & his kids. I love the Spencers!

Lynn

I remember Bobbie always being voluptuous. as she was a regular cast member on GH in the early 80’s She might have a push up on nonetheless, she’s a very striking woman.

Patrick

Now GH is Complete…. Scotty and Bobbie….. YUM!

I have missed Bobbie and Carly scenes for so long! It was a big mistake for past regimes to write Bobbie off of the canvas. She was the one that grounded Carly, who always saw through Carly’s bs. Yes, Carly had Jason but I always missed Bobbie’s influence, especially when Carly ended her marriage to Jax. And her scenes with Luke were always poignant.

Brian Tripp

I have no idea why Bobbie has not been in PC. Are they going to tell us where she has been? She has grandchildren in town and her daughter needs her. I hope that her son Lucas comes home too.

mo

Nice. I think GH treated her shabbily.

GH, if it continues to rebuild its core characters and legacy families, Port Charles could become like a real soap town again… like Oakdale (ATWT). Those connections, histories, and today’s issues befalling us from economy to social justice to war, make for good drama and creat the solid foundation for the sotrytelling we love so much.

Welcome home, Bobbie!

Nice!

Great news!!! Let’s get her in scenes with Luke and Carly for sure along with Scottie and Laura! Oh.. and Lucy and Michael too!

Shelly

Yay!!! She definately needs to interact with Carly. Carly has no direction and focus. Maybe Mom can smack some sense into her.

Now I love it that GH is bringing back the vets. But I hope ABC isn’t setting us up for disappointment, waiting for Katie to establish more of a foot hold on the afternoon lineup (still overhyped!!).

I love and miss the character of Bobbie Spencer. However I do not like what Jackie Zeman has done to her body and her face. It wasn’t necessary and makes her look like a clown.

i hope they don’t make it look like she’s been in town all this time, because if she has, then why hasn’t she been seen. no one ever said she moved? so i hope its explained.

Never liked Bobby and instead of hiring these Seniors, how about hiring some young folks. The NB is bullshit.

Another storyline for Carly? Hmmm… No thanks. Let her have her own storyline.

And whatever you do, DON’T kill off the character. Like the way Alison returned just to be killed 2 episodes later.

WTG GH! Do you realize how many of us baby boomers watched GH in the 70’s 80’s even into the 90’s before internet & work took over. We are coming back and so are you! Bringing back all those loved ones will help us pick up the show and start watching again during either over the internet or when we retire! Thank you for making this happen! GH ratings are going to shoot thru the roof again! Good job! Can’t wait to see them all back on the screen!

This is how it should play out: Bobbie visits from Seattle where she has been living. Reuinites with Luke and Carly (in separate scenes) updates us on Lucas. He’s now a nurse as well working in Seattle. She must visit BJ and Tony (this is where we can find out about Lucas) at the cemetary and maybe bump into Felicia so they can reminisce about the BJ/Maxie heart transplant story. Bobbie will also have a run in with Laura who is also returning to discuss Amy, Laura’s sister who has since died offscreen. I’m mean who could forget hospital gossip Amy Vining? Especially since Amy was so important in the Nurse’s Ball as Lucy’s dresser. Shell Kepler deserves some kind of tribute. Bobbie also has alot of unfinished business with Monica. Monica’s grandson Jake died and saved the life of Bobbie’s granddaughter Joslyn. Both characters were not around when this lightning fast tale was told so they both need to talk about it.

gloria

Excellent ideas Martin. I would love to see all of this play out. And remember when Michael was in the coma, his blood grandmothers are Monica & Bobbie & neither one of them was at his bedside. They were not involved at all. It drove me crazy. They are so connected by history & family & this relationship has been totally ignored! I didn’t even THINK about the Jake/Joslyn connection. WOW.

martin RN

Unfortunately this is how it will play out: Bobbie does a walk on in her own clothes and hospital badge at the hospital where it appears she has never left Port Charles at all and has always “been there.” She has two lines, her pager goes off and she says, “I have to take this” and exits stage left. Never to be seen again. I hate was GH has done to Bobbie Spencer.

Violet
Violet

Unfortunately, I think it will play out to be something like that. My thought was that she shows up for the Nurses Ball for hugs and smiles with other characters while saying a few lines, then she just magically poofs again into thin air never to be seen from, spoken about, or heard from again as she has been for years.

I want her back to say. She doesn’t have to be on everyday, but she NEEDS to be part of the hospital staff and to act like Carly’s mother. Michael needs a grandma. Well, so do Carly’s other kids except we haven’t seen them in around lately. (They need to recast that horrible actress playing Jocelyn. )

Welcome back, Jackie!

I am so thrilled to see all of the wonderful characters I have loved and was saddened to see either fazed out or eliminated altogether. GH has such a rich history of wonderful characters, it’s great to see them all coming back. Especially Barbara Jean Spencer!

GH Preview – Week of March 25, 2019

All roads lead to Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and you can put Willow (Kaetlyn MacMullen) in the mix now that it has been revealed she used to be in Dawn of Day and as she confesses to Chase (Josh Swickard), that she had Shiloh’s baby.

That would mean that Willow believes the baby Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are raising is hers with Shiloh! Willow finally admits the truth to Chase, but says that she must leave town as to not jeopardize the safety of her baby.  Chase tells her he will keep her safe and to stay in town.  Will she give their romance a fighting chance?

Meanwhile, all of Port Charles is reeling from the news that Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) knew that his serial killer twin brother, Ryan was alive and that he was treating him before his escape from Ferncliff and trading places with him.  Will Laura (Genie Francis) ever take Kevin back?  Will Ava (Maura West) continue to hope that she can end Ryan’s life herself, if he survived the fall from the bridge in Niagara Falls?

And ,something is not right with Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) homecoming.  We saw that he has scars and marks all over his back, which leads one to believe he was tortured while in captivity and on his mission.  Will anyone see that Dante needs help desperately?

Check out these teasers for this week’s GH’s and the latest promo for the soap below.  Then, let us know what storypoint you are looking forward to seeing the most via the comment section below.

MONDAY MARCH 25

Shiloh pushes his limits.

TUESDAY MARCH 26

GENERAL HOSPITAL Dante Comes Home; But He’s Tortured In More Ways Than One

Lante fans got their long-awaited reunion, of sorts, on Friday’s episode of General Hospital which also leaves viewers with a major cliffhanger as to what has happened to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) since his time away from his wife, family and friends.

In story, Lulu (Emme Rylan) goes into panic mode when it appears someone is breaking into her home.  When Dante walks through the door her shock turns to happiness.  She runs into his arms and they kiss.  Dante feel guilty for not being there for his wife, when she needed him most – after she was attacked by Ryan – and apologizes for leaving her and not being there to protect her.  Then, Dante gets a call from Frisco, who congratulates Dante on a job well done in terms of his assignment to bring down Raj and his undercover work.

After escaping Turkey with his father, Sonny (Maurice Benard), and heading home to Lulu, something seems off.  While they have a happy reunion, complete with making love, there is clearly a sadness in Dante’s eyes.  We get a glimpse as to why, when in bed with Lulu, the camera pans to his back and we see multiple scars on his back, which would indicate he may have been beaten while being held in captivity during his mission.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Zamprogna reveals what’s to come this week on all-new episodes of GH, which will illustrate how troubled Dante has become: “He’s trying to hide how disturbed he, in fact, is from his experience (abroad).  He’s so happy to be with his family. He missed them. He wants to be with them.  But as happy as he is to be back, there is something wrong that needs to be addressed.”

In the Sneak Peek for Monday’s episode, General Hospital released a clip, where Dante is seen and heard repeating, “I will complete the mission” and then appears to have shot Lulu.  But is this all in his head?

As viewers know, Zamprogna is back for a short run on the show, and not back full-time.  This week, also saw the talented and popular actor receiving another Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category.

So, what have you thought of Dante’s return thus far? Do you think he is suffering from PTSD … or something else? Are you happy Dom received an Emmy nod for his performances in 2018? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.   First, watch the sneak peek for tomorrow’s GH.
