Ryan Carnes Returning To General Hospital as Lucas Jones!

With all the chatter about Lucas Jones over the last week or so on General Hospital, we knew that the adopted son of Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman) and Tony Jones (Brad Maule), would not be far behind!  Especially since he is the bio-son of Julian Jerome (William deVry) who just discovered that there is a guy named, “Lucas”, who people have bantered about before him!

Now today comes confirmation, which began last week with an elusive tweet from none other than the first older version of Lucas Jones himself, sexy Ryan Carnes!  The actor tweeted on December 4th, “Like a ship lost in the night at sea, wondering where my next port will be…”  Obviously, the port is none other than Port Charles!

ABC Soaps In Depth  spoke with GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini on the return of Carnes, where he stated, “Yes, he’s coming back.  I got to meet him the other day. I like him a lot.”

Carnes last appeared on GH in 2004-2005.  After Carnes left the show the soap opera brought back the character played by Days of our Lives Drake Hogestyn’s son, Ben.  It was then that the character came out to his family and friends.

Recently on GH, Bobbie revealed that Lucas was living in Seattle, Washington and was still looking for the perfect man!   So does this mean Lucas will become part of a triangle with Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) and Brad (Parry Shen)?  No word on whether Lucas is coming back as a recurring or contract player at this point in time.  On-Air On-Soaps will keep you posted as more details come to light!

As for Ryan Carnes, viewers not only remember him from General Hospital, but as the boyfriend of Bree Van de Kamp’s son Andrew’s  on Desperate Housewives.  He is also remembered for the cult film, Eating Out!

So, what do you think about the return of Ryan Carnes as Lucas?  Do you think he is coming back for a major storyline? What do you think will happen when Lucas sets foot in Port Charles?  Comment below!

Great news. With Julian back from the dead and Bobbie also making appearances, it’s a good time to bring Lucas back. He will connect Luke, Sam, Carly, Kiki in a very interesting way.

Johnny

I hope Lucas and Kiki hook up!

Lucas is gay, and he is also kiki’s cousin after what was revealed about him being Julian’s son.

I have to say I am surprise, I honestly thought they would go with a unknown but I am a fan of Ryan Carnes and he is definitely not afraid to play a gay character. It will be interesting to see how Julian will react to having a gay son.

((an awesome cast and ‘new’ stories FV, RC, and writers are giving us!!

@su000 Thank you! I had no idea TP was coming back as Victor! I have Tweeted the writers numerous times and even messaged FV/RC on Facebook to remind them that VIctor Cassadine didn’t die on Ice Princess Island. I am beyond psyched! My only regret is that Tristan Rogers aka “Robert Scorpio” won’t be a part of this unholy reunion. I guess that’s the big Feb. Sweeps they were talking about!

Perfect choice.

I hope they give him a real love life and not just some woman’s “gay best friend.”

why would he have to have a love interest?
He will have much drama in his life and will be fine without a partner ..

Harry

I am hoping they will pair him up with Felix who can do so much better than Brad.

I hope he is not paired up for a very long time!!!
whats so terrible about being free..

And what’s wrong with being involved with someone? Isn’t that what most people want?

Shay

Sorry, Harry…RC’s way toooo cute for either Felix or Brad!!!!!! He will also no doubt be a far more well-defined character due to his history, heritage and upcoming storyline, so I should hope he will have much more to do than just hang around gossiping, scheming and interfering in other people’s lives the way those two stereotypes do. Brad and Felix deserve each other because both of them are really nasty….it took a bit longer to see it in Mr. DuBois, but his behavior with Sappy, especially since the non-wedding really showed his true self. He could have been a fun character had he been attached to Epiphany as a relative or given another role in life other than as “Princess Sparkle’s” matchmaker, but that train has left the station, and there’s no reversing the terrible impression he has left on the audience.

Harry
Harry

Mitchell, SuSuSu has issues with ahem, certain couples. Shay, you’re right. I don’t know what I was thinking. I loved Felix once upon a time but he has become a nosy little busy body and acts like Sparkle Pony’s personal assistant. I have lost all respect for Squealix.
I remember Tony on his death bed telling Lucas to be proud of who he is and not to allow anyone to make him feel ashamed of who he is because he’s perfect.

brian

I am really starting to like Brad with Felix

LOL poor Felix has haters because he helps Sabrina and doesn’t kiss Robins azz ,,, lol ..

Harry
Harry

Haters? So tired of that overused and misused term. I have lost respect for Felix because of the way he is written. He’s a complete stereotype calling Sparkle Pony, “Girl Friend.” Moreover, he acts like her personal bitch as if he has no life of his own. No, he doesn’t kiss Robin’s butt but he sure kisses Sparkle Pony’s haunches.

Shay
Shay

Love your use of equestrian vernacular, Harry! Would love to know who began that “Sparkle Pony” business. It really does work…..

Harry
Harry

Honestly, I cannot take the credit (or the blame) for the Sparkle Pony nickname. A friend of mine used it and when I gave her credit for it, she said she saw it on a soap forum somewhere. So, who ever started Sparkle Pony, please step up and let us saddle you with glory.
And yes, Shay, it fits like, well, like a saddle.

he is perfect

He looks like William D.(Julian Jerome Sam Mcall ,Carly C.)

GH is getting better and better!

Wow. he is very cute. Ryan is 31 years old? I just googled. him, he looks way younger. Bye the way, ryan is straight. but loves playing gay roles. Good for him, i love him already. i am gay, cute adorable but i have a nice boyfriend. i am a model, partime and i do acting as well.

Harry

Good to know, Ricardo–thanks!

He left GH because he didn’t want to be typecast as gay but every time I see him he’s playing a gay man.

jbj
jbj

Technically, he’s only played one gay role (on DH), whereas in Eating Out he was heteroflexible. When he originally left the role of Lucas, it was specifically because the rumors were out about his character’s new direction and he was afraid of being typecast. That said, he was the best ex-Lucas and it will be nice to have him back.

JLH
JLH

Wow that was unexpected. Can’t wait to see Ryan again on GH! And yes, he is super sexy–and if he’s still around come summer we’re bound to see lots of shirtless scenes with him lol!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

well, i said they should bring him back…maybe now Felix can have a story of his own without always sniffing up Sabrina’s arse like a heated puppy…Lucas, Felix and Brad love triangle…maybe itll make Felix a more fun, likeable character like he shouldve been in the first place!!!

su0000
su0000

Lucas will not be having anything to do with Felix and Brad, no way..
RC will give Lucas a great story and not highlight his love preference..

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

You could be right…but id like to see Felix in a storyline of his own away from Sabrina(but remain friends)…im still hoping he and Epiphany find out they are related

Harry

You know this how? GH needs to get with the times and showcase a realistic and gay relationship.

Johnny

At the very least Lucas has historical ties. Felix and Brad are dead weight and their salaries could be used to pay for fan faves.

Great choice gh! Frank and Ron knows what makes a soap roll. They have proven themselves time and time again from their years at OLTL and now turning 50 years of GH into pure gold. Last week hitting 3.3 total viewers in 6 years. Congrats GH. I hope we are gearing up for our annual nurses ball to keep the rich history alive and growing.

Johnny

Ya…going gay is just the thing to spike the ratings! Look what prominent gay storylines did for All My Children, As The World Turns, Guiding Light, One Life to Live…

What happened to Felix’s sister??? This show has gone in the dumps!

Jimmy
Jimmy

Just because Felix’s sister isn’t on screen as much anymore? She was annoying and bratty anyway, and quite honestly, Taylor doesn’t contribute much to story at all.

Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati have brought GH back to it’s glory days and there’s no good reason why the show is “in the dumps” right now. The stories are awesome and all of these fan-fave returns, like Ryan Carnes and Thaao Penghlis are amazing!

Johnny
Johnny

Lol. Ryan Carnes and Thaao Penghlis are GH fan faves? Since when?

Chance Van Pelt
Chance Van Pelt

I woulddn’t call Valentini and Carlivati GH run so far a golden age but they did do the impossible made a unwatchable badly destoryed soap watchable again. I so happy Lucas is coming back he is way too hot for Felix and Brad those two bitches wouldn’t know what to do with a man like Lucas anyway.

Seattle

The return of Dr. Lucas Spencer ( as he is now known-he supposedly took his mothers name out of respect to her) will sent shock waves throughout Port Charles! Not only is he an attractive, out and proud gay man, but he is related to half the town-both biologically and by adoption- but ties the two big story lines of the last year together….the arrival of the Jerome Family and the revelation of Sam’s parentage AND the continuation of the extended Spencer clan.. Carly,Michael,Morgan, Lulu and Maxie…all half-siblings or cousins..stories could , should and will go off in interesting ways!! Is he more of a “Spencer” or does he have some “Jerome” waiting to appear? Bobbie has already said that he is a “bit of a “player” the the Seattle gay community. Still looking to the “perfect guy””…..Time will tell!! We can’t wait!!

Patrick
Patrick

Spot on, Seattle.

#1… first and foremost… I’m ecstatic, over the moon… that Serials are giving credence… to the LGBT community… AND, the world over… that this is REAL.

before, you and me… this has been an innate sensibility… that belongs!

Man! this is the coup… that we have been waiting… for… and… I herald… your post… this is more than likely… thee event… that RC and FV… have been waiting for.

to triumph… and I’ll grandstand and soapbox… this is all our time.

if I was still in my 20’s and 30’s… I’d have taken Felix with a grain of salt…
I accept and relish… that Brad is (definitely CUTE!) intriguing.. because.. he’s not stereotypical… and I’ll wait out this… triad… trio… if it’s written

you nailed it!

Johnny

I too love that the show has done such an accurate portrayal of gays through Felix and Brad. Although I am not gay myself

I love Ryan as an actor, and hope it’s excellent to see him in the role again. Though, hope they do find someone else for him other than Felix or Brad.

Yea. Like Kiki or that cute nurse Penny!

Why bother? They will bring him back, and the religious NUTS will complain and he will be shipped off like all the other daytime Gays are!!!!

Johnny

I know. The religious nuts and the normal people who like normal couples will complain fiercely!

Donna

Heterosexuality is not “normal”- it is merely “common”… Please do not confuse the two….

Johnny

Donna…you completely misread my post. I said yes…religious people will complain, as will normal people…meaning normal heterosexual people. I in no way meant to infer thatgay is normal. I could have worded it better.

What daytime shows are you watching? Because within the past 5+ years, gay characters have been very well portrayed on daytime serials. I mean, AMC had Bianca for 10+ years.

Marie
Marie

When some people were speculating that Van Hansis would be cast as Lucas, I said it would not happen because he is too well-known in the soap world as Luke Snyder. There is no way GH would want people constantly bringing that up and fans making comparisons. Plus, who knows if Van wants to play gay again (yes, I know he is gay) on a daytime soap, he’s already doing so on his web series.

@Shay: Ummm RC too cute for Felix? I think not. Felix is a beautiful man. RC should be so lucky. ..

Shay

Felix’s attitude and behavior of late has made him VERY unattractive……

Awesome, I want to see a fight for him between Felix and Brad.

Johnny

Gross! Lucas is Michael’s adoptive uncle. Brad tried to blackmail Michael into being sodomized after Michael had been raped in jail. Gee..there’s a nice intro to a potential relationship. But they’re gay so its okay.

Johnny
Johnny

I wish the show would tell a topical tale and make it that Lucas was just going through an experimentation phase and is now straight. It would be a much better story.

Donna
Donna

Keep wishing, “Johnny”… What will be even MORE interesting will be the supposedly “straight” characters on the show that will “come out” when presented with an honest, realistic portrayal of a gay adult! I’ve always questioned the sexuality of “Morgan ” ( Ava? REALLY?!!), Milo ( gaydar PINGS off the wall) and , well…an “easy” solution to the “Robin/Sabrina” problem for Patrick!! I guess the good people of Port Charles will just have more fun in their lives!! Bigotry in Port Chuck is SO 70’s… Ignorance is lame and juvenile and not tolerated anymore and homophobes would be laughed out of town!

Johnny
Johnny

I find it interesting that gay people would accept ANY straight character turning gay. But if a character who was confused, tried the gay thing, and decided it was not for them…the gay community would be up in arms. I know many people who tried, experimented, whatever…it was not their thing. They are not deluded, they are not denying themselves,or any other labels that gays attach to them. I think specifically of the character Olivia on the lamented Guiding Light. After sleeping through half the town of men, she ran out and then embarked on an affair with a woman. The gay community praised that story. Put the shoe on the other foot. If lucas came back to town sleeping with and sodomizing half the town of eligible young men…and then decided he wanted to settle down with a girl….the gay community would cry bloody murder and protest and picket and rally and boycott. Pardon the appropriate pun…gays want it both ways. Personally…I think it would be a very interesting, controversial and brave story to tell. Its certainly somehing that’s never been done in the entertainment medium before!

Johnny
Johnny

And another thing…why would you question the sexuality of these two characters? Neither has made any type of gay action or statement or hint. Morgan has been happily banging Ava for months, and poor gentle Milo pines away for girls who just arent that into him. But….that’s okay for you to question their sexuality…so why can’t I question Lucas’? Do you see the double standard I am getting at here? The hypocrisy?

Johnny
Johnny

Donna… I need you to explain each use of your quotes in that post. LMAO. You put air quotes around my name, around Morgan’s name, around the word straight, around the phrase “come out”, and around the word “easy”. You have apparent different uses and meanings for each of the quotes.

Chance Van Pelt

Johnny Lucas is is a gay man he is sexually attracted to men is that so hard for you to understand? Years ago as a teen he came out to his friends and family.

Lynn

I think he resembles Julian. Good addition!

Johnny
Johnny

To clarify, I am not homophobic or prejudiced or closed minded. I sound off on ALL types of stories I don’t like. I don’t like mob stories, I don’t like violent stories, I don’t like rewritten history storylines, I don’t generally like teen stories because most soapshave no clue how to write a realistic and entertaining teen scene. There are lots of stories I don’t like. Its not me being rude. Its my opinion. That’s the great thing about opinions…we are all entitled to them. And no one’s opinion or like or dislike is any more valid or correct than anyone else’s. So if you consider me homophobic, then I consider you heterophobic. What’s the difference? Who cares really. Lol.

Christy

I think it’s great that they are bringing him back to play Lucas. When he left the show and they brought in Ben I thought “why would they bring in someone, who to me was not attractive to play the role of a gay man” I think they should bring him in as who he is gay. I’ve seen a few posts here saying to make him straight and hook him up with Kiki. Really? That’s his cousin by blood. A gay man is way way better then an incestuous one. Gross. I do think they should play the gay roles realistically. FYI Felix is being played in a realistic way. He is the quintessential girl gay man. He just needs a life of his own. I think Milo should come back bi-sexual, sure of who he is and bi. Now that is realistic as well.(and would make great GH drama) You would be surprised at the supposedly straight men/women you know who are willing to experiment, or are Bi-sexual.

Wil

@ Johnny: “sodomize”?? Really?

I think it will be interesting to see Lucas on his ex. Bro in-law Sonny side n see how Julian will take to that.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Courtesy/ABC

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
