On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers saw the highly-awaited return of Ryan Carnes in the role of Lucas Jones, the adopted son of Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman) and Tony Jones, and the biological son of Julian Jerome (William deVry) and Cheryl Stansbury!

When Carnes as Lucas, made his re-entrance on to the canvas, he first met with Bobbie and Luke (Tony Geary), where Bobbie was already lamenting about telling Lucas the truth … that Julian is alive!  This comes along with her worries that daughter Carly (Laura Wright) is missing!  When the door bell rings at Carly’s, it’s none other than Lucas!

Ryan Carnes has some exchanges with GH vets Tony Geary and Jackie Zeman, where Bobbie almost spills the beans to Lucas, but he does notice that Bobbie is not eating and heads to none other than Kelly’s to get some food for his mom, where he runs into Sam (Kelly Monaco), who at first does not realize who he is!  The kicker:  Sam just walked out of the diner on Julian, who came to quiz her about Lucas!  Will Julian and Lucas meet face to face on Monday’s episode? Stay tuned!

So, what were your first impressions of Ryan Carnes return as Lucas! We came away with a high-five for Mr. Carnes!  Weigh-in below!

He was always my favorite Lucas so I’m glad they got him back. I enjoyed his scenes Friday and look forward to seeing him interact with Sam and Julian. I also look forward to scenes with Kirsten Storms’ Maxie when she returns, I always liked their relationship.

So glad he is back. I always thought he was the best Lucas.

Ryan’s time on the show was actually the brief period of time (over the last 25 years) that I didn’t watch GH… so I don’t really have a frame of reference for him or his approach to this character. When they first started talking about “Lucas” I was hoping someone from one of the axed shows would get a chance at this role, so I was a little disappointed when I heard Ryan was taking the role. But I can’t give an accurate answer until I’ve seen more of him. So far, he seems ok.

He looks more like he’d be Silas’s son than Julians…imo…he fits right in…like he’s always been there!

Was that the real Dr.O named Chief of Staff or her twin…also will it be Luke buried alive in that grave Shirley Jones stumbles upon?

Excellent question, jimh! I asked the same one on a more recent thread! It’s funny because I was just thinking last week how wacky and wonderful it would be for “Dr. O.” to run GH, never thinking that it could actually happen! But given her rather “prim and proper” exterior on yesterday’s episode, it does make me surmise that this is another entirely different character, or at the very least another identity that our beloved mutter has adopted to “hide” in plain sight???? Although if that is really the original “O’ then who is locked up in the pokey? There… Read more »

Might his bio Mom be in tow? Perhaps that is the role Donna Mills has been tapped to play?

The character was killed off in the 1990’s. Donna Mills is 73. Far to old to play Cheryl Stansbury. I am betting Donna Mills will play the mother of Julian Jerome.

First impression that he looked hot as hell hope he doesn’t hook up with brad like I heard, Lucas is way to hot for brad especially if it’s true that Lucas chases after brad instead of the other way around.

I was so glad to see Lucas!!!!…GH did a good job casting Kelly Monaco, Ryan Carnes

and William DeFry, they all look like family!!!!!

I also enjoyed Sam and Silas banter when they was at Kelly!!!!

Also Come On Sam!!!! I would love for Daughter & Father to bond!!

I agree about the family resemblance factor & the need for more Jerome bonding. Julian needs to be seen playing w/Danny again! Those two were adorable together. But, I also liked Danny w/Faison…so what do I know?

He fits in perfect and is a wonderful actor and looks like he could be related to Sam and Julian!

HOTTIE! Loved him! I remember him on the show years ago and he seems a lot hotter and sexier this time around. I am hoping his triangle with Felix and Brad is quite temporary.

It was alright, though, not the Lucas I would’ve preferred to come back. Hopefully they pair him with someone who isn’t Brad or Felix, though. Or that he isn’t written as a cliche.

It’s great seeing RC back in the role of Lucas, and he looks fantastic. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him. Hope he sticks around Port Chuck for a while–I loved his interaction with Luke!

Hope he gets a good story line. Good to see Bobbie on the front burner. Lucas and Luke hit it off immediately. Lucas and Julian do look like father and son. Good choice.

He slipped right back in easily. Seemed very natural. I was happy to see a familiar face at the door. 🙂

Seems OK. But way too good for either Brad or Felix. Would hate to see him date either. Can’t we dump both Brad and Felix and find another guy for Lucas? (Although Brad did raise quite high in my estimation when he told off Felix last Friday. Even so, he’s still shady and Felix is still Gladys Kravitz…)

I remember when he was on before… and now he’s a man (yeah baby) so it makes the related to Julian better.. they have similar builds too.

and they’re both easy on the eyes! 🙂

welcome back!

I don’t like him. Send him back to Seattle.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
