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

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
