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 has to be a twist there to explain this delightful surprise! All I can say is that this has been the best development in a painfully boring year so far!!!!!

Very impressed. He seems relaxed and his acting style was very real. He is def more handsome to me this time around!!

Glad they brought back Ryan Carnes instead of anyone else,good choice.

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.

It’s like he’s always been there, good casting choice.

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!

Tim

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.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
