Stuart Damon to Return for General Hospital's 50th Anniversary!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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?

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
Guest

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

jim
Guest

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.

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!

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

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… Read more »

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!)

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. 🙂

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
