Courtesy/ABC

In a brand new General Hospital promo released today, multiple Daytime Emmy winner and a current star on ABC’s Nashville, Jonathan Jackson makes his heralded return to the soap opera that gave him his start this summer.

As previously announced, Jackson is returning this summer for a short story arc along with his on-screen half brother Nathan Parsons (Ethan) as the duo are in story that ties up Luke Spencer’s last storyline before the iconic Anthony Geary (Luke) departs the series for the final time.

The ABC summer promo features many of your favorites from Port Charles, and if you look closely there is a major reunion moment when Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) opens her front door and Lucky is standing there! Could Lucky get through to Liz to make her stop her deceitful ways on keeping Jake’s (Billy Miller) true identity a secret? Will he even know what she has been doing?  Will the two have heart-tugging scenes about how their relationship fell apart even though they deep down love each other?  Stay tuned!

Watch the return of Jonathan Jackson and some sizzling summer heat moments after the jump! Then weigh-in on what you hope happens when Lucky and Elizabeth see each other again!

All I want to say is…..Jonathan Jackson is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Yeah, pretty shallow of me, I know. But, WOW!!!!

@CeeCee… Ditto.. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing JJ in the
role of Lucky, UR in for a treat.. He lights up the screen❗️

gosh, Jonathan looks so good. I’m so happy he’s coming back for a brief stint, as much as I loved Liz & Lucky back in the day, I’m excited to see them reunited. I’m a Liz & Jason fan, now, but how cool is it that Liz & Lucky will have scenes, too. I hope we see some flashbacks from their days past. Jonathan is super great on Nashville, and I’m grateful the beloved star is making his way back to Port Charles. So classy. Welcome, Jonathan!

Tony has a twitter? I know he did but I thought he dumped it. Trying to pull up youtube but something’s up with my computer. I’ll catch it shortly-I saw all of GH at this time-was addicted big time. As sick as this sounds, my fav scenes from GH were when Liz was raped (you absolutely did not see it coming) & Lucky finding her in the weeds after. You had so many things going on there-esp since Lucky did not know of his dad, aka his best friend, raping his mom. It was the beginning of Lucky & Liz’s… Read more »

I hope i get ‘LUCKY’ and he takes Liz away…used to like her but she just irritates now…NoNo Clay, Stanco, (K)icki, Stale Val, Jorden and TJ cause me Boredom can leave as well as Sappy Santiago and Grossalee…Val might have been more interesting had Momma Pat been around and we learned more about their lives and relationship…now Val seems like she is just there to split Dante and Lulu….all characters ive mentioned just feel like pointless filler moments with barely any connections to the show…Sap and Tracy as bffs…is that a joke???

Shay

“Pointless filler moments,” indeed, jimh!!!! It’s been especially noticeable this week with the way Luke and Laura’s story was just wedged in between all these needless characters! It’s like a tale of two soaps…..one, the GH we know and love, and this other, an alien group of interlopers with no palpable links to the heart and history of the show. This “split personality” approach simply doesn’t work. As for new “besties” Tracy and Sappy, the concept is so utterly ridiculous, I can’t fathom it! If the show runners had wanted to go with an upstairs/downstairs” friendship like Anna and Lady… Read more »

@Shay… That scenario would truly be delicious, exactly what Tracy needs.

sorrows and play a little pool…

I so agree with all you said…it should have been Monica and not that interloper who had overstayed her welcome months ago…it wouldve been nice seeing Monica and Tracy bonding after all these years and having a girls night out!!!

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Fanny…..Yep, a “Girls’ Night Out” would be too much fun….although I’m not sure if I could envision the soigne’ Magda getting down n’ dirty playing pool! More likely she’d be sitting in the corner with her champers making prickly pronouncements about the rest of the lot! LOL….

No such luck!! ….have you noticed that two certain posters disappeared for days and then came back at the same time? Get my drift? Two names, one person. I need to mind what I write about Alexis, again! Also, I forgot to mention on my last reply about Franco and Dr.O. I had been thinking what you wrote for a while now. I am glad… Read more »

Jimh, you had me all the way until Sabrina! And even with that character, I see where you’re coming from. I’m actually hooked on the instant friendship between Tracy and Sabrina. It’s daunting, yet refreshing, for Tracy to have an actual friend. I’d get rid of a few other main characters, too, but I won’t go there today… 🙂

@Shay I have decided that maybe Leslie Charleson is ill and can’t work right now why else have we not seen her since last year. She was every bit as good of an actress as anyone on that show now her scenes with Stuart Damon etc and the breast cancer storyline wonderful acting. I miss her I really do.

Jeremy
Guest

I don’t think this instant “I’ll be your friend, Tracy” thing works for me. For me, a friendship between Sabrina and Tracy feels forced and awkward, same with the Michael & Sabrina pairing. I would prefer to see Tracy remain with her original givens, it’s very much her character to be strong enough to live life friendless, she’s consistently been family oriented, sure she had issues with Edward. Anyways, if Sabrina is going to be nanny for the months to come, she should be just that, nanny to AJ, nothing more to Michael and to Tracy. I would love to… Read more »

James i kind of agree…it would be refreshing seeing Tracy with a female friend but it shouldv’e been with her sister-in-law Monica…they have never really been close and often at each others throats over the years…it wouldv’e been truly refreshing to see Monica and Tracy as bffs and bonding after all these years…its Monica’s house and we never see her…her son Jason is alive with a front-and-center storyline and all we see is Monica’s picture?…Monica should be in these stories…it wouldv’e made more sense with her and Tracy…and we should be seeing her in occasional scenes with Jake too…she’d get… Read more »

@jimh….Oh yes, we are of one mind when it comes to all the “Sappy-centric” tosh…we don’t need it….we don’t like it….we don’t want it!!!!!!….Got it????? I’ve already skipped numerous episodes these past few weeks because I simply cannot suffer through that upstart’s increasingly unwarranted, contrived presence and gross imposition into the most unlikely GH characters’ lives and scenarios. I swear, the “Sapster” has practically become the “Forrest Gump” of Port Charles!

Sappy is taking over the show like Summer on Y&R! I cannot stand either one of them. Jane Elliot probably wishes she would have announced HER retirement after seeing that she has to chew scenes with “Scene Slicer Sappy!”

I just don’t get why all the long-time greats of GH have been forced to share the spotlight with this inane nobody….Anna, Tracy, Sam, Patrick, even Sonny and Carly. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason for this mediocre miss being accorded so much exposure on the Port Charles canvas, and yet, many, many far more talented individuals and favorite characters have been relocated to the backburner whilst she continues to be shoved down the viewers’ throats.

Oh, I agree with everything you stated, Jimh, except for Sabrina. I have a weak spot for her. LOL. I do not even recognize Liz anymore. ….or, was she always a double-crosser?

LOL… Now that she has a paying job (literally, lol) she could get invisalign braces. Oh, and I find Tracy’s off-the-wall-friendship with Tracy a bit out of place, myself. What do they have in common?

@jimh.
You’re right about keeping Pat alive. So many questions would have been answered. But, yes, that would have been too easy.
I do wonder, though, why Valerie has her mother’s surname, Spencer. Was she born out of wedlock? Was Pat raped? Did her father abandon both her and her mother? Was Pat purposely keeping her child’s paternity a secret? If so, why? I think Valerie is here to stay because of all these ‘mysteries’. We shall see!!

It shall really be interesting to see where Ms. Jerome’s insatiable libido leads her…she’s wantonly wading into Alexis territory, where she’s just “gotta have it,” come h#ll or high water! Speaking of the “bust-baring one,” has it gone unnoticed that despite Denise’s totally trashy tartwear, she’s still showing off far less cleavage than the uppity Alexis?

And, yes, Shay, I did notice that Ava , regardless her less-than-savory conduct and forced, ditsy demeanor, she has class. That’s what separates her from from low-rated Alexis. Ava is not an exhibitionist. She needs not display her wares….we all know they’re there!!! LOL, still at… Read more »

Having said that, as long as neither of us emulates Denise or Alexis in the respective attire to which they currently adhere, we should remain in good seasonal style stead….LOL!

His hair was so dark and shiny, it resembled patent leather! So much for GH’s small screen version of Valentino…LOL.

Yes, CeeCee, Ric and Maddie are, for lack of a better word, “icky!” Of course, he is so reptilian, I cannot understand any woman going for him, most particularly the lovely Liz!

I guess they deserve each other—like two slithering snakes in the grass—yet, I wish that Madeline had found a more appropriate “mark” for her money-making efforts.

I wish GH would moved forward once an for all and leave lucky in good standing with Liz, I’m sure the show is hoping he’ll come back for good( so am I) but why leave the character in such bad standing? We all know jj is ion Nashville and also has a band so knowing that why can’t lucky still at least be a good parent and see his kid offscreen?

@The Substitute….In reference to your speculation regarding why Monica, aka Leslie Charleson, has disappeared from the GH canvas: you very well may be correct, although I certainly hope to the contrary!

Truly, Fanny! I’ve been appalled at the lackluster storylines and the worthless characters at the forefront of the summer season. I guess it’s my own fault for expecting something special with Luke’s last hurrah, and Laura’s arrival, but mercy, the past few weeks have been insufferable! I barely watched an entire episode in that time, save for yesterday. What a slice of heaven that far-too-brief moment of nostalgia with L&L@The Triple L was!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, ladies! However, if CeeCee and I were to be in charge of female (and why not the male, too?) casting, would anyone ever pass muster with our super high standards?

That’s the $64,000 question! LOL!

GL Alum Kimberly J. Brown Joins the Cast of General Hospital

Another daytime favorite is coming to General Hospital.  This time its Kimberly J. Brown (Ex-Marah) of Guiding Light fame.  She last appeared on the soaps during her from 1993-1998 and then a brief return in 2006

According to Soap Opera Digest, she will make her GH debut next week in a mystery role.

Kimberly worked with two GH powerhouse actresses during her tine on Guiding Light. 

She noted to SOD about her time in Springfield: Cynthia Watros (Nina, GH, Ex-Annie Dutton, GL) was my stepmom for a bit, and Laura Wright (Carly, Ex- Cassie, GL) played my aunt.”

Brown has appeared in numerous primetime television shows and motion pictures over the last few decades.

Now the question becomes, who will Kimberly play on GH? Share your theories via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

Photo:ABC

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Photo: JPI

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.

John Reilly ‘General Hospital’ Tribute Episode Set to Air May 21st

Details have emerged on the upcoming John Reilly tribute episode of General Hospital.  The popular star passed away back on January 21st and the ABC daytime drama series had promised they would deliver a special show dedicated to the man who played Sean Donely starting back in 1984.

According to Deadline look for GH enduring stars: Genie Francis, Kristina Wagner, Finola Hughes, Jon Lindstom and John J. York to all appear in the special episode, along with Reilly’s real-life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, which had been previously announced.

The story will involve the mourning of WSB agent Sean Donely, which will set Felicia Scorpio (Wagner), Malcolm “Mac” Scorpio (York), Anna Devane (Hughes), Laura Collins (Francis) and Kevin Collins (Lindstrom) into a mystery involving Sean’s daughter, Annie (Caitlin Reilly).

General Hospital EP Frank Valentini shared in a statement: “John Reilly was an incredible actor and a large part of the 58-plus-year legacy that is ‘GH’. This episode is meant to honor him and his contribution to the show’s rich history. With so many fan favorites returning, new and longtime viewers will enjoy it. We had a lot of fun filming and I am grateful that we were also able to include his daughter. Viewers will hopefully also enjoy one more surprise return – it is just too amazing to spoil.”

Mark your calendars for May 21st when the special episode is set to air.
