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: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
