The GH Stavros Shocker! Robert Kelker Kelly Returns As Stavros Cassadine!

In one of the biggest surprises of them all, General Hospital pulled off a shocker at the end of today’s episode!  Many fans had been speculating that Thaao Penghlis was perhaps on his way back as Victor Cassadine, and that he would be revealed as the one who was ultimately holding Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) hostage, but we were all dead wrong!

On today’s GH, it was revealed that Stavros Cassadine played by Robert Kelker Kelly is indeed alive! He survived that fall years ago to the bottomless pit in his epic battle with Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary)!  Just how did GH pull this off and get Kelker Kelly out of acting retirement?  What is the future of Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) ? Is she dead-dead?  To the answers to these burning questions, TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan got the skinny from GH head scribe, Ron Carlivati!  Here are a few excerpts below!

Carlivati on the decision to resurrect Stavros Cassadine:  “We really wanted to revive the Spencer-Cassadine feud in a big, surprising way for the 50th anniversary. It’s been Luke versus Helena for so long that we needed an additional twist, and since Stavros was never found in that bottomless pit, we don’t know what really happened. [Laughs] For all we know, he went all the way through and ended up in China! It seemed so fitting to bring him back, since he had that relationship with Laura and is the father of her son, Nikolas. That’s still such a sticking point for Luke.”

Carlivati if Helena has truly drawn her last breath:  “Obviously with the Cassadines you never really know. But the idea is that Helena is dead-dead. A major turning point in the Spencer-Cassadine rivalry needed to happen. After 30-plus years of this we needed to give Luke that moment of triumph, so he plugged her. Point blank. And he checked her pulse. So, yeah, she’s pretty dead.”

So GH fans, what do you think of the shocking twist? Were you surprised? Are you glad to see Robert Kelker Kelly back for a bit?  Share your thoughts!

Gag. He’s nasty.

LOL .. yah! I like some good nasty 😉

Dont care about that just want to see if Dante and LuLu are ok

me too!!! hahahaha 😀

like me some nasty that is Su0000

i never watched his first turn… on GH.

however!

when he was on DAYS as Bo…. he was smokin’ HOT.

this should be interesting…. should he reel all that…

DAYS should bring him in…

Seriously – there’s no other way to ressurect… Hope and Jenn…

it’s gotta be some one – viable.. w/ enuf heat to be their own show and enuf sensuals to stir up Hope and/or Jenn. kinda like Todd….

why do you like bad guys

I know that

Yay! Was hoping for this, but didn’t think it would happen.

yes there well

Yes,I’m sooo excited to have Robert Kelker-Kelly back but sad to see Helena actually dead !

ME TOO!!!!! Wish Days would have brought him back to play Bo

who is Bo

Glad. He is back on soaps and days needs to snag him to play bo

None of the Cassidines ever die! I’m so glad Robert Kelker Kelly is back! I remember him from Another World-an incredible actor!

yes I ‘am happy she is gone. I liked him

Not a surprise at all. i heard the rumours that robert was coming back to general hospital. Welcome back robert. he is a good actor. i hope they sign robert to a vo contract.

Me to

Double Ditto! Is this the orginal Starvos?

awesome surprise! welcome back stavros!

Preferrred Stefan

Me too

Omg, today’s episode was GREAT! awesome job gh, i hope he’s around for awhile

He can play a very convincing villain like Stefan. I think this will be fun.

I am excited to see how this all plays out. The last time he was there the storyline got tanked by the network, due to what happened on 9/11.

FV is running GH sky high with excitement..
It is always moving backwards and forwards!

FV and RC are orchestrating all for the fans, we are #1 !!!

FV&RC are resurrection Suppermen; hardly ever a dull moment……. lol :),

ITA- never a dull moment– surprises galore– every day is like sweeps week on other shows. I don’t know how they hope to keep up this pace of story telling, but I admit next to GH, other shows seemed to be going at a snail pace. It has been a long time since I watched a soap that when it ends I can’t wait for the next day to find out how that scene is going to play out. I tried watching GH many times before over the years, never got into it, until now– it is slowly becoming my new favorite.

I agree. Years ago, like 46, when I started watching GH and soaps, we ran home from school to get there in time to “tune in” to see what will happen today.

(y) for me it always was GH than OLTL did not like all that mop stuff . F,V you got me hooked ones more 🙂 thanks

I was shocked when I heard Laura say that is Stavros. Love the twist and the awesome job the entire cast and crew are doing. Thank you for an awesome 50th and assuring a great 51 years and more.

Not too suprised but i actually thought it would be Helene! No one really dies on soaps and Luke is no medical expert so he could have been wrong on Helene being dead! Sometimes when i end up in the hospital or doctor visits they dont always feel my pulse! lol. I actually thought RKK was going back to Days to replace Peter Reckal as Bo Brady like he done 20 years ago! Having it be Niks daddy instead of Victor, who could always show up later too, makes more sense to me!

Thought he be on Days as Bo!

they should still bring him back.

I wish he would and need him more

Cool! Loved the sinisterness of Stavros. It would be way cool though if Thaao Penghlis resurrected Victor.

LOVE Thaao and would have lovvved for him to return to GH.. what a treat that would have been!!!

I couldn’t agree more about Victor Cassadine coming back. I really hoped Cartini would have brought Thaao Penghlis back, but I guess not. So many people think Victor Cassadine died back on “Ice Princess Island” (not to be confused with Cassadine Island or Spoon Island), but only Tony and MIkkos died; Victor was arrested by WSB soldiers/agents and presumedly sent to prison for a very long time.

Yep, there was never any mention that Victor died, in fact, didn’t he help Luke shut down the ice monitors for PC not to freeze? So, Thaao would have been a welcome return! Who knows, maybe GH still has another Cassadine surprise. I sure hope so, Thaao is a fave!

Was totally surprised, didn’t think they’d want to remind us of that awful cryogenic-biotoxin story that was halted when 9/11 happened. Really hoped it would be Stefan; Stephen Nichols isn’t on a show and if they can bring A.J. and Duke back from the dead, they could do Stefan.
But if anybody could get that bad taste out of our mouths from that bad story, it’s Cartini.

I see FV&RC righting a wrong of past regimes killing off so many talented actors and their great characters..
It is justice to bring them back..

Stefan would have no reason to get even with Laura by taking her daughter Stravos would. I knew it was going to be him when she told Luke that was their bedroom. Flying airplanes must agree with him he still looks good. I like him he was very good on AW and I thought he was a good recast on Days. I agree that was a stupid storyline but freezing the world was goofy too.

Plus Stefan wouldn’t go after Nikolas. (You wouldn’t think Stavros would, either)
Would like to like R-K-K, but my only experience with him was on GH, never saw him on AW or DAYS.
Was also kind of hoping it would be that mentioned character Valentin Cassadine, someone who hates Spencers and Cassadines.

Kelker Kelly is not a strong, compelling actor. Didn’t buy is attempt at heroic lead on Another World either.

He was very compelling on Days – the best Bo!

Days needs. To bring. Him back

He is Truely Awesome!

Handsome. Quite a surprise!

So glad he is back! The storyline needed to move forward and, though I love Helene, bringing her evil Son back into the mix is brilliant. Cartini keeps me guessing!

I was VERY surprised to see RKK back on daytime, and very pleased. Loved him on DOOL as Bo many years ago. Am glad he came to GH rather than reprising Bo Brady. He’s a good looking man and I’m tickled with his return.

I wouldn’t mind if Days brought him back as BO. I think he did a great job — not like Peter Reckell but he had his own version of the character and was sexy as all HELL!!!

Always preferred RKK’s version of Bo – he and Billie were the best!

Well, to me, Peter Reckell is and will always be Bo but when Peter left, I did like RKK’s version with Lisa Rinna most. They had awesome chemistry! Unfortunately, he didn’t hold the same chemistry with Crystal but sorta had a little bit with Kristian. I still wouldn’t mind if he came back though..

Awesome !!!!!

He was amazing on Another World as Sam and Bobby! He worked beautifully with Jensen Buchanan (who also was on GH circa 2001) and He is great as Stavros! Very exited … Now maybe a Brita and Nikolas pairing with daddy acting as Helena would

I believe that FV&RC did actually kill off Helena ..

It was pure justice for Luke & Laura to finally rid of the terrible woman who caused them much pain, it was befitting that they together killed Helena (applause)

*and the woman is not a spring flower and she will most likely retire and that was her last scene, forever..

I never liked this actress as Helena — always loved Liz Taylor in the role so I hope Helena is really dead. I’d rather see what Stavros can do or maybe my favorite Victor Cassadine, most notably Thaao Penghlis resurfacing again and wreaking havoc instead.

I too liked Liz Taylor, but I also liked Constance Towers. She is a classy lady.

I’ve watched GH for about 40 years and I loved the 50th anniversary Nurses Ball.

I don’t know if you are current on the episodes, but I will say with Helene’s death, Victor could come back for revenge. I am also surprised that Stefan hasn’t come back from the dead.

Loved seeing RKK! He looks great.

I would have liked to have seen Richard Dean Anderson back as Dr Jeff Webber.

I am current on episodes and I hope Helena stays dead but I would love for either Stephen Nichols to return, Thaao Penghlis to make a comeback and hopefully RKK stays on.. he does look great!!! I hope his stint wasn’t too short since he ended up in the ice room.

Or he can go over to DAYS which is in need of Bo Brady.

I always liked Richard Dean Anderson too 🙂

Wow was I surprised. Welcome back Robert. I remember Luke dancing on his grave. That was a laugh. This was a nice surprise and now Kick has a father.

Stavros Cassadine = Sabrina’s Dad ! Im telling ya …. Faison’s girl vs Cassadine girl…. Ohhh the possibilities!!!!!’

what a great idea!

Very interesting idea… Sabrina is so good though… maybe?

Perhaps he PLAYING (KELLY MONACO FATHER)

Ron is the best!!!

The show is awesome!!!!!

BUT I THINK SOMEBODY ELESE IS SAM MCALL FATHER

Well that would be gross cuz Stavros is Alexis’s half-brother….

Well Luke did call them “inbreeds” so who knows….LOL

alexis is suppose to be his half sister, that would be really gross.

well you’re right!!

He can’t be Sam’s father

But he knows who is!!!

Aonther intersting idea… that would make Sam a double dipped Cassadine and she is too nice for that much… Cassadine evil.

First, let me just say that Robert Kelker-Kelly looks terrific! And, is a welcome return to daytime. Congrats to the powers-that-be at GH for wooing him out of retirement. He’s a wonderful actor and still the best recast (as Bo Brady on Days of Our Lives) in the history of daytime television. Looking forward to some great Stavros/Laura/Luke scenes.

DITTO!

I was thinking the same thing on how they got him out of retirement! I love RKK and he was on GH too short last time.

Figured they would bring back a Cassidine just was hoping he was Britts daddy!

I like it!! plus he’s cute..even if he’s supposed to be evil….I’d rather look at him than Helena…though I am a fan…of hers too..& the relationship with Nik could be interesting..& Laura..

I knew it was one of the Cassadines that came back from the grave just didn’t know which one it was going to be but I knew it had to be between Stavros and Stephan. Great surprise!! I don’t think Helena is dead either she always comes back!!

This General Hospital episode I have to see. I got hooked on General Hospital watching the former actors return. I enjoyed R.K.K. when he was “Bo Brady” on Days of Our Lives and we all were wondering if he would return to Days, but now we know. Surprise, he is on General Hospital. Better watch on ABC website tomorrow. General Hospital is so much better than Days Of Our Lives right now.

Bring back Stephen Nichols as Stepan Cassadine and Mary Beth Evans as Katherine Bell!!! Watch the sparks fly and let the games begin once more!

TWO: HOT actors….

I just love them both…. LOVE Kayla…. and/or Katherine.

they both have that twinkle in their eyes in spades….

Darn! Would’ve much rather it be Stefan! Of course, if he’s only back for Luke to kill him again, I’m glad it’s NOT Stefan! LOL Still hoping Stephen Nichols returns long term as Stefan!

Going to miss ole evil Helena – If she is really dead!

i was shocked to find out that at the end of today’s episode of general hospital not only was starvos cassadine alive but he is being played by the handsome robert kelker-kelly. i can’t believe gh lured him out of retirement i was really hoping it would be days. i read he is supposed to do a bunch of episodes i’m hoping after he leaves gh he can play bo brady on days again i really loved when he played him

What a great twist! I’ve always been a Robert Kelker Kelley fan since his AW and DOOL days, wept when he went down the GH bottomless pit, and jumped for joy when he appeared at the end of today’s show. He’s an excellent actor and had been gone too long from our soap screens. Thanks to FV/RC for the resurrection. Wonder if they’re holding Stephen Nichols in a secret room to complete the Cassadine family? LOL

Wow! This is awesome news. Kelker Kelly is HOT. Days treated him poorly when they kicked him out to bring back Reckell. I always thought Kelker Kelly was waaaaaay hotter. It would be great if they brought back Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans.

it’d be better to imagine…

RKK as Bo for Hope.

and SN as Patch for Kayla.

my DAYS needs some serious action.

Not only did Days dump fan fave RKK to bring back Peter but since then Days insiders have constantly trashed him for acting too sexy during love scenes or whatever. Get a grip Days – we like our love scenes sexy. And your loss is GH’s gain!

as much as I love Peter Reckell, RKK definitely got the shaft from Days!!

okay, lol, omg, here is all i got to say,if starvos is alive then so should stephan, omg, this one was a good one. i can’t wait to see it play out.

I’m soo glad that he’s back!!!! I’ve been a huge fan of RKK, since his days on Another World…Good job GH

I thought that it was told that Stephan was Nicolas father not Stavros . Does anyone remember this?

I thought the same?! I must have forgot?
Did the switch it back?

I can’t remember the exact storyline, but it ended up that Stefan was NOT Nicholas’s father, Stavros was. I think Helena or Katherine or someone else pulled some blood test switheroo to embarrass Laura into admitting she had had sex not only with Stavros when she was held captive on Cassadine Island but also with Stefan. This revelation during some trial or another was the straw that broke the camel’s back in Luke & Laura’s marriage that lead to their divorce.

Thanks, not sure how I forgot all that!

Whatcha bet that the Helena that died was a clone or a double that the real Helena created–perhaps Britt and her evil Mother were in on creating the clone???

i love robert as stavros. good actor and very very sexy lol. i hope they give him a contract on general hospital. trust me helena is not dead. that was a clone. helena will be back very soon.

I never thought of a clone…hmmm, sounds interesting.

PLEASE! let it be….. DAYS!!!!!! TPTB…..

what an opportune time… to watch RKK on GH…

and simply put: HIRE HIM! Pronto!

for Hope….. A new BO.

I think that with starvos back,it will be interesting to see if they get Lulu back without either of them got killed.

yes i am happy hes back.but also bring back robin.i like to see a happy ending once in awhile

Nice twist GH

i’m in shock to see stavros alive how did he survive from the fall? it pretty shocking to me i still don’t know how he come back alive i’ve thought it would be mikkos but i guess i was wrong. its great to see robert keller kelly come back to soap i’m glad to see him what a surprise !

Love it! Also still hoping that Sabrina is Franco’s baby & the missing Q heir! <3

I knew it was Stavros…so glad to see him. I think Helena’s death was an anti-climax. After all those years, to just unceremoniously just plug her. It happened so fast, I had to replay it to see it. Hope they keep the feud going for a long time.

I think they put the wrong Cassadine here- the writers should have made Victor Cassadine responsible for EVERYTHING- the abductions of Robin, Lulu, and even some of the ELQ financial mess as part of payback against PC in the downfall of the three original Cassadine brothers back in 1981. It makes more sense to bring Thaao Penghlis back as Victor and use extensive use of 1981 flashbacks, and that would be in keeping with the whole 50th Anniversary. There is a ray of hope, though- according to that TV Guide piece, the writers are very much aware of Victor, and perhaps they are going to use him in the near future…..

General Hospital Co-Stars Share Their Grief and Mourn the Loss of Johnny Wactor

There has been an outpouring of grief, sadness and remembrances for former General Hospital actor, Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin 2020-2022), who the world learned was shot and killed on Saturday in a senseless theft and act of gun violence.

As previously reported, Wactor was only 37-years-old. The incident, as told by Wactor’s mother to TMZ, which ultimately took his life, occurred when three individuals attempted to steal the catalytic converter from Johnny’s car. Once alerted to the situation. Wactor did not try to stop or interfere in the theft but the unidentified suspects shot him anyway and then got a way.

Many of Johnny’s former GH castmates took to social media in the last several hours with heartbreaking and touching words on the loss of Wactor. Here are just some below, and Michael Fairman TV will continue to update these remembrances as they are posted.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Photo: ABC

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Finola Hughes (Anna): “Gutted…. 🕊️ sending my deepest condolences to his family 🤍 I feel I must add to this post. The shock is so terrible, for such a genuine young man to be taken so violently. I am incredibly sad for his family. He was a very hardworking person, kind and extremely respectful to his fellow cast members. I am so sorry for his loss 🤍 Johnny Wactor xxx”

Photo: ABC

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Ashton Arbab (ex-Dev): “Absolutely heartbroken while typing this. Johnny Wactor was not only my tv dad for more than 25 episodes on General Hospital but he was a great human, a kind soul, an inspiration and a one of a kind actor. May your soul rest in peace. Heaven gained an Angel.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

Photo: ABC

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description. Johnny was such a good guy. Really horrible. RIP Johnny Wactor & much love & comfort to those who loved him.”

Laura Wright (Carly): “In shock. My heart breaks for Johnny’s family. You were an incredible man.”

General Hospital’s Michael Easton Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Last week over several episodes, General Hospital, handed the ball to one of their longstanding MVP’s Michael Easton (Finn), and he took it all the way in for a touchdown. The backdrop was the lead up to, and then the heartbreaking death of Finn’s father, Gregory Chase (played by Gregory Harrison), and its aftermath.

Through it all, Easton gave every scene its weight, made every scene compelling, and brought us, and we are certain many viewers, to tears throughout it. There is no question come Emmy-time 2025, this is one of the performances that must be remembered, and Michael has the scenes for his reel to back that up.

The set-up was coming off of Finn’s brother, Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding to Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton). Gregory asked the nuptials be a bit fast-tracked to ensure he could be present for it, for he was suffering from the illness for which there is no cure, ALS.  At the wedding reception, Finn slipped and took a sip of a glass of champagne, which began to break his seven years of sobriety.

Once back from the reception, Finn and his dad, have the ultimate father/son talk, knowing they are on borrowed time. Finn and Gregory have also had a very strained relationship at one point; due to both’s involvement with Jackie Templeton. But with all that behind them, and in the present, Gregory was able to tell Finn how proud he was of him, and Finn said the same to his dad. There were tears, we all bawled, and then it was time to get Gregory ready for bed. Due to his symptoms from ALS, Gregory needs help getting undressed. Finn helps out his dad, before telling him goodnight. Gregory flashes back to his life and seemingly falls asleep, but he never wakes up.

Courtesy/ABC

The next morning, Finn finds him cold and dead in his bed and sits on the floor at his dad’s bedside and weeps. Overwhelmed and alone, Finn pours himself a drink from the bottle left as a gift by the Cerullos. He has now lost his sobriety, completely. Things get even tougher for Finn when his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) comes home from school and he has to tell her that her grandfather died. He also had to call his brother, who was about to leave on his honeymoon, and tell him the bad news.

Courtesy/ABC

After having a bit more to drink, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) stops by and they have an argument over his drinking and his unwillingness to let her take Violet with her for the night, which puts a strain in their relationship. Later, when Chase and Brook Lynn show up they can both see that Finn hit the bottle. When Chase finally gets some one-on-one time with his brother, he is able to get through to him.

While mourning the loss of his father, Finn realizes he needs to get cleaned up and get to a meeting. For Finn, as he recounted, having to witness the paramedics taking Gregory’s lifeless body with them was something no son wants to see and was more they could bear.

It was all heart-wrenching, beat by beat. Easton gave us all the layers and complexities and took us inside what Finn was feeling and how he was trying to cope with this terrible loss and tragedy. For all of these reasons, and those cited above, Michael Fairman TV names Michael Easton’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, do you agree with our pick of Michael Easton for his work on GH for ‘Power Performance’ honors? And what moment from the episodes discussed above really brought you to tears the most? Comment below.
