Hot on the heels of the news that Chris Robinson is on his way back to General Hospital in some form as Rick Webber, so now is Stuart Damon as the deceased Alan Quartermaine!

Both Stuart and Chris were involved in one of General Hospital’s most enduring an classic quandrangles along with Leslie Charleson’s Monica, and Denise Alexander’s Lesley Webber!  Will Alexander be the next to be announced for a return?

Damon’s return was confirmed via @generalhospital Twitter page this morning when the image seen here to the right was posted on their Twitterfeed.

From what we can deduce it is clear that Stuart Damon will return on the March 29th episode which leads into the Nurses’ Ball.   How do you think GH is weaving Alan and Rick back into the story?  Let us know your thoughts!

I don’t care how they do it…just do it. Killing Alan (and firing Stuart Damon) ranks as one of the most boneheaded decisions…and certainly doesn’t endear Jill Farren Phelps to me at all. Sure, you can blame Bob Guza but Phelps had to have OK’d it. GH has never been the same and it had to take Frons of all people, to hire 2 guys who were at OLTL forever to bring the love, laughter, adventure, AND HEART back to GH. We can never get those awful 10 years back from Phelps but I admire greatly how Frank & Ron are trying.

We love you Stuart!

Frons killed OLTL for no reason other than it was taped in NY..The least he could’ve done was give frank and Ron new jobs…

maybe the mystery ingredient in Pickle Lila is LSD which they serve at the nurses ball- and everyone ends up tripping, seeing the dearly departed dead roam around town LOL.

Perhaps Alan really isn’t dead but has been kidnapped and being held in Switzerland. He could be taking care of Robin!

That’s what I hope , He needs to be somewhere alive and well, He needs to be the head of the Quartermaine family, If Ron and Frank can bring back Aj and Duke, Our Alan could be the next one to come back home to Port Charles.

Wonderful Tracey could use her conscience right about now!

Wow I can ‘t. Believe this is happening I have goose bumps just thinking about Alan’s return
And how he’ll fit into the nurses ball. Maybe a masquerade nurses ball ? Creepy !

Please bring him back alive! Tracey, Monica, and AJ need him now that Edward is gone. Bring Denise Alexander back as well. She is needed for the 50th too!

I second this! It was such a huge mistake for previous regimes to decimate the Quartermaines by killing Alan, Emily, AJ and Justice. I’m so grateful for the new regime since they rectified the AJ error and wish they could being back Alan alive. Could Jerry have kept Alan alive? Heck Helena could be behind Emily’s “death” even. I love the new GH and will take Stuart Damon in any form.

Like i posted previously, i hope they both come back alive. Rick everyone thought dead was a trick by the Cassidines and the alive Rick was held captive by the Cassidines til he managed to escape. Now he’s back with Monica. Alan was in a coma after being shot and his late father Edward kept it a secret. Alan is the missing ELQ shareholder. Alan finally wakes up from his coma and returns to Port Charles with the help of Ricks former wife Leslie Webber. Both Alan and Leslie return to Port Charles just in time to catch Monica in Ricks arms. That would be a great nod to the shows rich history.

jim

P.S. if all this was true who should Alan give his ELQ shares to: his manipultive, spiteful sister Tracy or A.J.,the son who shot him?

Rodd

Jim,
AJ did shoot Alan, but he didn’t die from the gun shot. I think MK is right in saying he died of a heat attack; just not the gun shot.

MK

Alan was NOT shot, he had a Heart attack. They never actually show his death on screen.

jim
jim

I thought he was shot…but i guess i was wrong…only watched on and off during that time. But Edward still couldv’e kept it a secret that Alan never died, and he’s well enough now to return to P.C. Thanks 4 the reply.

ok i’m beginning to see a picture here, this is the part where we see the dead return, like stuart, and chris robinson ect. wel i’m game but still i have a list of charaters i want to see and to top it of why not have Stone their too in spirit. woulld love to see Michael Sutton back after all the nurses ball was started because of his character. and his brother Jagger needs to come back to honor his brother. then theirs other characters that i haven’t heard mention that also hope are coming back like tiffany, sean, lesly, and i hope just in general not just for the 50 anniversary that they bring back Sarah Brown and Tamara BRAUN AS SISTER OR SOMETHING THEY WOULD BE GREAT

aria the actress Sharon Wyatt who played Tiffiany has been battling some kind of bone disfiguring disease since 2011.

It would be the ultimate snub if they don’t bring in Ms. Alexander! I can’t imagine that RC and FV have shown such great reverence for history and would rob Denise Alexander her due and in the process rob Rick and Lesley fans of a reunion AGAIN!

I’m beyond excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely thrilled! Remember when Luke told Anna nobody really dies in Port Charles? Let’s hope FV & RC found a way to bring Alan back alive!

There’s going to be 3 nurses ball one for the currently living and then one in heaven with the not so alive, like Stone, Rick, Alan, Emily, tony jones and one in hell with Claudia, faith, Anthony z ect.

Ive seen over the last week a lot of people inquiring about Denise Alexander. I know when she last appeared I believe in 2009 or so she was not in good health. Believe it or not she was born in 1939 which would make her 73 years of age. maybe her health will not allow her to return. I don’t know this as fact but just remembering that she was in tough shape during her last appearance.

Tracy
Tracy

I can’t speak for Denise, but I did hear an interview via RHeartNetwork back in February and she was asked if she had been contacted. She had not and it was evident she might be a bit hurt they hadn’t at that point. I also know she is appearing on a great web series right now (wearing a gray wig) called The Inn (check it out on YT) and she is fabulous and looks great! As a matter of fact, she was voted in the top 5 actresses for web series poll for last week! No, I don’t think her health is an issue and she is a year younger than Chris Robinson. She looks fab and has still got her acting chops!

Denise Alexander is appearing in a new web series with another former daytimer Crystal Chappell(?) . Micheal had that on here for discussion a short time ago. Hopefully she is okay enough to do both…at least a guest appearance.

That’s it. I’m officially staying off soap sites until after the 50th anniversary….. I’m already spoiled by knowing about too many returns! (But am glad to know that Alan will be a part of it one way or another!… and am casting my vote for an Alive Alan.. the show needs him… AJs return showed that the fans want more Qs and hospital staff.. and Alan is both!)

Patrick

Great point! I’m on all these sites and I’m never surprised when I watch! Enjoy!

I hover on here, TWOP and Soaptown and have been amazed at the things that slip by (like when Alan and Robin appeared in the same week last autumn). I love reading and making commentaries but really want to enjoy these next three weeks to their fullest. 🙂

Christy

Monica was involved with Jeff Weber too… bring back Richard Dean Anderson! 😀

Richard Dean Anderson, he can Mac Guyver his way in how he wants……mmmm

Allan is really not dead. Dr David in Pine Valley saved him.

They had Alan appear as a ghost last year, and this was after Valentini and Carlivati took over. So if they didn’t bring him back from the dead then, I don’t see it happening now.

While I would love it if they could take an eraser and wipe away the awful decision that Phelps, Guza and company made in killing off the character in 2007, and bring Alan back alive, he’ll probably be appearing as a ghost to Monica and Tracy again.

But hey, Stuart Damon playing a ghost is better than no Stuart Damon at all. He was always one of my favorites. They’re really doing a wonderful job honoring the history of GH, and bringing back all of the favorites you would expect to see for a big milestone anniversary like this. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out on screen!

Rodd

I love Stuart Damon and would love to see Alan back alive. But, I will settle for ghostly visits as often as I can get them. The past ghost scenes have been very moving. As a more recent viewer, I can tell that Alan was an intrinsic part of the GH canvas.

Its more anniversary gimmicks! Im so sick of Cartini and this dumb game they play where they get naive fans hopes up and then they ruin everything like theyve done with Lynne Herring and John Lindstrom as Kevin and Lucy. What an ignorant waste.
And dont get me started on the cartoon caricature they turned Heather into. Stuart Damon should have been rehired and Alan Q resurrected the week Cartini took control of GH. The ghost BS is just that BS. There was no good reason to fire Stuart. Just ageism.
I feel so sorry for all the naive fans who’s hopes will all be crushed once the anniversary is over and the majority of these vets are shuttled back to oblivion from whence they came. Its ridiculous.
Id lay odds that the majority of all these peeps are gone before summers end. Jack Wagner’s run is almost up. Robin Mattson has been written into a corner and out again. Im sure Lynne Herring and John Lindstrom are on borrowed time. It was reported that Lynne would be out in March. And I highly doubt Genie Francis and Kin Shriner will last either. Its all a big publicity stunt. Cartini are masters at manipulating the audience but they suck and creating consistent, compelling, intelligent story. SMH.
I will love seeing both Chris Robinson and Stuart back on screen, but I almost want to pass it up just not to be manipulated any more by this cheap regime.

dg

I really feel sorry for all the desperate fans out there who are like poor starving depression era citizens standing in the soup line for a thimble of soup and a crust of bread.
I’ve tuned out GH for the majority of Cartini’s run so far. Ive watched a few scenes with Genie Francis since she came. But I havent watched a full episode of this show since 2013 began. Thank you Cartini for ruining a 4 decade tradition in my life and my family. SMH.

If GH is bringing back Rick,and Alan,they may as well bring back,Tony,and Georgie,and Emily.

If the show can bring back AJ, they certainly can figure a way to bring back Alan. Since Edward died the Quartermaines need Alan. There are so many people who miss Alan and Monica’s love/hate relationship and Alan and Tracy’s sibling rivalry. Now that Steve is leaving they need a new head of the hospital. It would just be so poetic if Alan came back in time for the Nurse’s Ball. It would make so many fans happy and the ratings would go up. So writers, bring Alan back as a real live person and not a ghost.

I want to see Alan and Robert Scorpio come back. Robert is in some dumb coma. I would love to see Chris Robinson and Denise Alexander, I cant stand the Scotty character he is always around, They keep Luke around for years why not Scorpio. Anna is coming nack.Someone doesnt like Tristan Rogers, fans have been screaming for his full-time return for years. I dont think the show can make it on all these young characters. There are so many veterans that could return but Alan Scorpio,Laura.Luke and Anna and Robin. I hope the producers of GH read these comments get tristan back and keep him.

To let Alan die was the biggest mistake they could make. I’ve always watched GH since I was a young girl and GH without Alan and Monica it is not the same anymore. It is like watching Gone with the wind without Rhett Buttler. Alan have to return and not just for short time.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
