Sean Blakemore Returns to General Hospital

Photo: ABC

Daytime Emmy winner, Sean Blakemore is heading back to Port Charles!  News today has Blakemore being back at General Hospital in his role of Shawn Butler.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Blakemore had inked a deal with the ABC daytime drama series.  No first airdate back has been given at this time.

With Shawn back on the canvas it could certainly stir things up romantically for his ex Jordan as well as reconnect him with his biological son ,TJ.

In story, Shawn was sent to Pentonville prison for a crime he did not commit; shooting Hayden Barnes.

Blakemore took home the Supporting Actor Daytime Emmy back in 2016.

So, excited to learn Sean Blakemore is heading back to GH? Comment below.

Sounds like this return was a long-time in-the-making, as fans kept asking for Sean Blakemore to return as Shawn Butler. If I am being honest, I am indifferent to it.

this is great news, and while your at it, also bring back Hayden.

It is incredibly vexing that Hayden would just abandon her daughter and never come back. No one even mentions her anymore. I get her life was threatened with one of Nikolas’s idiotic ruses but by now, Hayden would have checked in to see if the coast is clear. Besides, she had great chemistry with Finn.

I agree with you completely. They are good at doing this type of thing as I mentioned about Sean Butler.Once the character is gone, it’s bye, bye until we need you again someday. Heyden’s been gone so long, I can barely remember the circumstances of her leaving. Hope things are well with you.

Well, it’s about time he got out of prison. Considering he didn’t even commit the crime he was accused of.

Now if I were writing this show, I would have Shawn get out of Pentonville, and not go to Port Charles immediately, but rather to visit some family members who own a bar in “Nixon Falls PA”.

Where he would unexpectedly run into his former boss, Sonny Corinthos…. who for some reason, doesn’t seem to remember him. Or anything else.

And Shawn can be the one who brings Sonny back home… since Nina clearly has no interest in doing so.

You are spot on! Sean will have ties to the folks that run The Tan-o.

The Shawn guy- just getting out of prison will have no money to speak of.
Someone will need to care for him money-wise.
He will need shelter, clothing, work, food.
But it’s a soap– He could be a prisoner millionaire lol.
Shawn will most likely go into the bar business with Curtis.

Curtis and Shawn are far from friends. That would be quite a stretch.

The sooner the better as far as I’m concerned, S. Watching Sonny/Mike make eyes at Nina is making me nauseous.

hi Soaphound-
good for Sonny/Mike to be making in on with someone other than Carly.
Sonny and Carly have been making me nauseous for years lol
I hope Sonny and Nina do the nasty, but the writers will never have that happen.
(it would be fun to watch, for sure..
Sonny and Carly haven’t had a hot kiss in years let alone
a hot bumping in bed = boring, sigh no blue pills LOL
total Grandpa and Grandpa with those two.

I think it would have to be as friends,because Phyllis came to Port Charles and would have visited TJ who is family. Being friends she may not know TJ existed but even that’s hard to believe as a friend.

Would like to bet you a few hot brimstone or whatever you use for betting that Nina will indeed waltz Sonny back into town on her arm,as her latest conquest, right in Carly’s shocked face.

Seems like there is some good reconnections coming in the near future. I love him in this role, though it will be interesting to see him interact with both Jordan and TJ since the actors portraying both of these characters have been recast since the last time that Shawn was on screen. And yes, it might be a good time for Hayden to return, especially since Finn and Liz have been sharing scenes of support for one another. Looking forward to this return:)

Also, I’m liking the pairing of Leisl Obreakt and Scottie Baldwin. They both loved Franco and may be instrumental in the return of Roger later this year.

I enjoyed watching Scott and Leisl. Also like them as a couple.

Oh Margherita, Liesl and Scotty — WOW! Who knew? I love them together and the actors seem to enjoy it also. I hope Liesl is instrumental in bringing down Peter Puke. Let’s just hope they don’t screw that up and make it all about Carly.

I love Scotty and Liesel apart and together. I hope while they are cooking the Snitzsel, they can keep the big prize in mind,getting Peter,as you say.

I am so glad he’s returning. He was a stand up guy.

This is good news. Blakemore has great onscreen presence.

I agree, Drake. Sean had great chemistry with Carly, too, and was a good friend to Molly during her PTSD issues. Beating up Franco at Sonny’s behest…not so great but I’ll forgive him that infraction. While we’re bringing people back, please get Billy Miller back. I’d be willing to lose T.J., Jordan, Gladys, Martin, Charlotte, Brook Lyn….

Shawn’s return is pretty much a guarantee that TJ and Jordan aren’t going anywhere. Though he may not recognize them, as they both look a lot different than they did when he went to prison.

About time he is going to be involved with the curtis and Jordan story I bet

It’s about time. They just locked him up and threw away the key. He was innocent and no one even fought for his release. Where was Alexas? If they meet up before he leaves Pentonville, will she say anything of importance? They were together, if only for a short time.

I hated when Sean was nolonger on the show. I can’t tell you how good it is to see him back. I hope its for a while.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
