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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!!).

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… Read more »

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
Guest

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
Guest
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… Read more »

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Do you want Trina to end up with Spencer or Rory? Will the jury exonerate Trina? What was your favorite part of the conversation with Brook and Tabyana? Let us know in the comment section.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Photo: ABC

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
