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: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.
