Thaao Penghlis apparently isn’t done at General Hospital!  The actor who recently reprised his role of Victor Cassadine and helped usher out of  story, Kimberly McCullough’s Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, tweeted there is so more Vic to come!

According to Penghlis, he will be taping again on March 31st and the actor offered up a little tease too!

Thaao tweeted, “I just was asked back on GH on the 31st.  So happy to announce. Oh what disturbances & romance will be taking place. Hullo Spencer!”

So is Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Brenchel) going to enlist Victor to help him win Emma’s (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) heart once and for all?  Is Victor going to try to rekindle his former romance with Dr. O (Kathleen Gati)? Is he coming back to do work with some other nefarious criminals in Port Chuck?  Is he going to pay Patrick (Jason Thompson) a visit and update him on Robin?  Let us know what will bring Victor back to GH?

Just so happy he is coming back… and if Sharon Wyatt is also missed, and I wish her all the best, and hope she will act again.

Victor is wealthy and could be behind the Jeromes…maybe its Victor and not Jerry posing as Luke?(or was Vic on at the same time as weird Luke)…Luke acts more like Victor than Jerry…i would love a Victor and Dr.O pairing, and i still think Victor is Nathans real father…perhaps Victor will run into Madeline?

Characters on this show disappear for weeks…Mac and Felicia for example(hope Maxis return changes that)…so i just assume Victor was still part of the show anyway!!!

There are too many recurring characters, the core, legacy characters and families get lost in the shuffle. Instead of bringing on even more recurring, useless characters, the writers should focus on the history of the show. I love having the Cassadines back. Love Victor and his scenes with Dr. Obrecht sp). Characters I could do without-Kiki, Brad, Carlos, to name a few.

dmr…i agree with most you said…however, Lauren(hate Kiki) was a little interesting with fake Luke hitting on her!!!

Don’t see how “Luke” is acting like Victor in any way, shape or form. Mr. Cassadine is refined, erudite and a total class act, despite being a dangerous villain!!!! Whoever is portraying Spencer is such a reprobate that he cannot contain his own vile impulses to even protect his ruse….it’s almost as if he doesn’t want to be convincing as the real Luke, unless he also intends to destroy Spencer’s reputation once and for all, in addition to vanquishing Sonny. For supposedly spending 20 some years on this revenge project, faux Luke has done precious little homework when it comes… Read more »

I actually hope Luke is really Luke…just a brainwashed puppet being used by whoever is really funding the Jeromes…the Cassidines…imo…or no better than the mob so maybe Victor is using mind control and behind the funding or even Jerry!!!

But if Luke has been programmed for evil doing, why is he so out of character when it comes to personal info, like details of loved ones and recognition of Port Charles citizens that he already knows? Even taking into account that drugs or whatever messed up his mind, there is still something missing…his basic essence, or “Lukeness.” This guy is just plain mean and nasty….there is no levity, devil may care attitude or roguish charm….hypnosis shouldn’t take away his true personality….and I don’t see the endgame with brainwashing…if he is to do a successful scam, he needs to be… Read more »

Thank God! Great actor! So much story that could be told with Victor. I only wish Tristan didnt run off to Y&R. He is being wasted over there was a stupid story line! Hopefully Victor will bring news, or better yet, Stephan with him!

Tristian is boring on Y&R…i thought he’d make the show more interesting but he was better on GH even if recurring!!!

so Alexis has an Uncle named “Victor” and Derek (Julian J) has a papi named “Victor”….interesting.

Can someone confirm if Tom Jr (TJ Ashford) is related to Dr Tom Hardy?

No, different parents altogether. T.J., or Tom Jr., is the son of Thomas “Tommy” Ashford (hence the Tom Jr. name) His father was killed by Shawn. Dr. Thomas “Tom” Hardy Sr. is Audrey’s son with Tom Baldwin (adopted by Steve Hardy) Dr. Tom had a son, Tom Hardy Jr., with Simone Ravelle. He’s older than T.J. as he was born in 1989 and soaps always will age a kid to be older, not younger…. Last known as Dr. Thomas Steven “Tommy” Hardy, Jr., MD, , he left town with his mother in 1997. Dr. Tom Hardy Sr. has been portrayed… Read more »

Welcome back, Victor! Was disappointed that his initial stint was so brief….think that this Cassadine has a lot more secrets that are yet to be discovered….not so much with the Jerome family muddle (which really does not get more interesting, although the “Luke-a-Like” reveal has been fun….just sick of all the mob stuff….) but with more links to Dr. O., Jerry Jacks, Faison, etc….and of course, Madeline! I believe his story about getting Robin to restore Helena and Stavros to their former existence is but a smokescreen and that Dr. Scorpio-Drake’s real mission will be to first and foremost bring… Read more »

He doesn’t want to come back; hence renewing his contract at Y&R.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.

GH’s Holly Set Ablaze; Show Reveals Stunt Double For Emma Samms From Major Cliffhanger

If you caught the end of Tuesday’s fiery episode of General Hospital, you know that Holly (Emma Samms) who was cornered by the PCPD, ended up on fire when the cabin she was in went up in flames!

In the cliffhanger, Holly was seen on fire coming out of the cabin.  Of course, viewers knew that a stunt double would have to be called in to tape such a moment, and that is exactly what the ABC daytime drama series did.

On Wednesday, GH’s official Instagram released a photo of Samms and stunt performer Colby Lemmo stating: “We’re seeing double! 🔥 Let’s give stunt performer @colby_lemmo a hand for helping bring yesterday’s explosive finale to life. 👏👏👏 ”

Lemmo has performed stunts for major motion pictures and TV shows  including: The Mandalorian, Westworld, Criminal Minds, 9-1-1. and many others.

Now the question becomes, what will happen to Holly? We know that Emma Samms only returned to GH for a limited-run to reprise her signature GH role.

Does this mean that Holly might be recast with a new face, if she is badly burned and disfigured … or is this just an exit strategy where the character gets sent away to heal from her burns … or was that not really Holly who came out of the cabin?  Three possible theories that fans are pondering.

So, what did you think of the fiery conclusion of yesterday’s GH? What do you think will happen to Holly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
