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?

Well, he totally outshined Tony Geary in their scenes together on Friday IMO

I immediately like him, just something appealing about him. Can’t wait to see what is to come.

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…)

Christy

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.

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
