Last Friday, General Hospital viewers were given a quite a jolt when the presumed dead Jerry Jacks showed up very much alive and in ca-hoots with none other than, Dr. Ewen Keenan (Nathin Butler).  So what is going on?  How and why is Jerry involved and responsible for the plot to kidnap Robin, and make all of her loved ones believe she is “dead”?

TV Guide spoke to the Evil Mr. Jacks portrayer, the talented Sebastian Roche to get the scoops.  And in their chat, much more is revealed including another sinister plot this week putting another favorite or two lives in danger!   Here are a few excerpts below!

Sebastian on what Jerry’s plan of revenge exactly is: “He intends to terrorize Port Charles on a massive scale and it’s going to affect every character on the show. It’s very deadly. I’m quite interested to see how he’s going to pull this off!”

Sebastian on how Jerry pulled all the strings to orchestrate the faux-death of Robin, starting with the lab explosion: “ Basically it was an elaborate concealment. Ewen found an anonymous corpse and switched it with Robin’s body, did a little DNA tampering, and that’s how he managed to make everyone believe Robin died. Jerry was only peripherally on the scene but he was manipulating Ewen, operating the puppet strings.”

Sebastian on how is Jerry manipulating Ewen to do his dirty work: “I don’t know that I can reveal it yet but Jerry has a pretty big piece of news about Ewen — a piece of personal news. So we’re talking strong blackmail. Jerry is manipulating quite a few people, Ewen being the main one.”

So what do you think about the return of Jerry Jacks?  Do you like the idea of him being behind Robin’s kidnapping and the elaborate plan to make her family and loved ones think she is dead? Do you still think there is another twist coming and perhaps Jerry is working for someone else from Anna, Patrick and Robin’s past? Who do you now think Ewen is related?  Weigh-in!

I guess it’s OK to have Jerry back but he never truly seemed like a really EVIL guy until they made him one. I remember when Jerry was just screwed up and trying to marry Bobbie so when he became an evil genius never fully sat with me. Now, Helena, Faison…THAT’S evil genius…thats evil to be evil. But, like I said, it’s ok…a little bit of a let down. Let’s hope that he’s working with of of the 2 forementioned or even someone else from the past. I trust Ron and Frank vision and they haven’t let me down yet:)

ITA, Faison was sinister from day one and Jerry was just someone over his head. Even Roy Delucca was smarter than Jerry. It would have been better if Roche would have been a new character. It never click for me.

So Jerry is kind of like an upscale version of the Joker from Nolans Batman trilogy?

Wonderful twist!! Thanks to RC & FV!!!

I think Ewen is either in co-hoots with Lisa Niles (yes Lisa) and Jerry . Jerry was behind the so-called “death” of Lisa. Lisa escaped through Ewen and Jerry.
That’s my theory on this storyline.
BTW, thank God the Chew is headed for primetime.
Susan
Also, Ewen is Jerry Jack’s son.

I was actually hoping the kidnapper was Grant Putnam or Ceasar Faison. They make more sense than Jerry Jaxs and Ewen Kenan. Ewan didn’t even know Robin. Jerry is more of a sick gameplayer. Neither man should be involved with this ill advised story line.

I agree !!!!!!!

Here my two cents..I think Jerry Jax/Sebastian Roche is the ultimate soap villain..He is such a good actor..I luv watching him…just like I luv watching Anthony Hopkins when he is being evil..I think Ewen is Jerry’s son & that is why he can be manipulated cuz it seems as though Ewen is a good guy but we all know that the characters on GH have major “daddy” issues..

A good villain is part of good storytelling. I am glad to see Roche back on GH and hope for compelling plots in the months ahead.

Do we really have to go through all this again? Once was enough with the Metro Court hostage situation. What reason does he have for wanting to terrorize everyone in Port Charles? It makes no sense.

Jerry is back on a temp placement. He is dying. FINALLY!
He either has lung cancer or he has a dreadful disease that he is going to inpact upon gh before he dies.. jmo

I think there is someone else involved giving Jerry the orders….

Two words about Sebastian Roche’s fan-freaking-tastic return – WOO HOO!!!!

Agree!

I hope that Anna Hurry up & finds Robin and brings her home,even if she has to kill the people that are behind all of this,Like Jerrt and Ewen.I do think that either Helena or Faison is behind this somehow and I want them brought down & Robin back home with her family where she belongs.

Bryan Craig Teases ‘Who Could It Be’ in Response to General Hospital’s Returning Mystery Man

Since General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini dropped a major bombshell of what’s to come on the long-running daytime drama at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the guessing games have begun of just what former GH actor is returning to the cast this summer.

Speaking with ABC’s On The Red Carpet, as previously reported, Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

That has led to major online speculation that it could be anyone from: Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky), Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky), Ted King (ex-Lorenzo Alcazar), Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer), and Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) among others, that might be the gentlemen being referenced.

On Wednesday, responding to a post on the subject from Soap Opera Digest, Bryan Craig commented, “Who could it be ….”  Now, clearly he can just be having some fun with the situation to throw fans off-track, or he might be giving us a tease of what’s to come.

Before exiting GH, the actor won two Daytime Emmys for his performances as Morgan Corinthos in 2016 and 2017.  Craig appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared most recently in Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel, plus several independent films.

The character of Morgan was killed-off the show when Olivia Jerome set a bomb that exploded in the car that Morgan got into, but was meant to kill Olivia’s brother Julian Jerome. Morgan’s death caused a huge split in the relationship of Carly and Sonny.

So, do you think Bryan Craig is just having fun with the audience, or do you think it’s possible he is the big return Frank Valentini is talking about? Comment below.

General Hospital Daytime Emmy-Winning Directing Team Remembers Johnny Wactor: “He Came to Set Every Day with a Smile of Gratitude and a Love-Filled Hug for Everybody”

It has been a rough year and a half for the General Hospital family losing so many beloved cast members and producer, Nneka Garland.  Now, the Daytime Emmy-winning directing team has spoken out about the emotional toll it has taken on everyone associated with the show, and most recently, with the heartbreaking murder of Johnny Wactor (Ex-Brando Corbin).

The actor was shot back in the wee hours of the morning on May 25th by a masked gunman who was part of three car thieves trying to steal the catalytic converter from Wactor’s vehicle. Johnny came upon the scene after he finished his bartending shift in downtown Los Angeles and was walking a co-worker to their cars.

Last Friday at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, GH was named Outstanding Directing Team for a Daytime Drama Series. Following their on-stage victory, the group stopped by to chat with Michael Fairman TV on the Winners Walk.

Directors Robert Markham, Tina Keller, Allison Reames and the rest of the award-wining directing team, shared in the joy of their victory, but it was not lost on them the seriousness of the moment as well.

Tina Keller expressed, “It’s been a rough year, and it’s been really rough for General Hospital recently with Johnny.” Keller, along with Robert Markham recalled what it was like working with Wactor.

“He came to set every day with a smile of gratitude and a love-filled hug for everybody,” shared Keller. “I’ve never worked with anyone who was so much light-filled and happy to be where he was. Just so much gratitude and joy and it’s a tremendous loss for his friends, his family, and anyone who loved him.” An emotional Robert Markham confirmed what Keller shared,  “Yeah, absolutely. He was a gentleman. He really was, and we’re going to miss him.”

GH paid tribute to Wactor in the final moments of the Tuesday, June 11th episode with a title card in remembrance of the slain actor. A march in Los Angeles is scheduled for this morning, Wednesday, June 12th, to City Hall for a call for change to clean up the streets of LA from crime, to help find Wactor’s killer.

The directing team took home the gold in the Directing for a Daytime Drama Series category, in part, due to the episode they submitted surrounding the memorial of Epiphany Johnson played by the late Sonya Eddy, who passed away back in December of 2022. The second episode they submitted was when Anna’s (Finola Hughes) house was set on fire.

Keller spoke to directing the memorial episode that was so heartfelt and raw as performed by the cast that knew and loved Sonya Eddy. “You know, it was a beautiful day to be able to pay tribute to Sonya and it was a rollercoaster all day,” shared Tina.

“We had our cast giving tributes to her and they all did such a beautiful job. It was well-written and a rough day emotionally, but it was an honor to be able to play a tribute to somebody who’s been such an important role in General Hospital throughout the history of the show,” Keller concluded.
