General Hospital fans were hoping to see Denise Alexander return for the GH 50 celebration in April, but instead of that she is returning to be part of an important moment in a major story for May Sweeps!  Watch this week as Denise makes her return as Laura’s (Genie Francis) mother!

With Laura and Scotty (Kin Shriner) looking as if they might be making it official … the question, is will they even make it to their “I do’s”?  We have heard previously from Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) that Lesley had been in Europe taking care of his son, Spencer!

Denise Alexander has been a favorite for General Hospital fans since the 70’s were she was part of the torrid, Rick/Lesley/Monica/Alan quandrangle, which included the heartbreaking search for her daughter, a young Laura!

What do you think will happen when Lesley return to Port Charles? Are you excited to see Denise again on GH? Let us know!

I always loved Denise Alexander as Lesley. A real class act. I start watching back in the day of the triangle. Have always hoped she’d return at length and get involved in a plot with substance, rather than just passing thru. I hope it happens this time!

Ditto welcome home Denise..stay for awhile..

I was hoping LuLu would “snap” out of it, when Gramma Leslie hugged her at Windamere. After all, Gramma Leslie raised her, and it would be so appropriate!

LOVE Denise and I always have! Hope Lesley will stick around for awhile. And STILL hope to see Peter Hansen and/or Susan Brown appear as Scotty’s parents.

Peter Hansen is now 91 ..i dont think that he will be back..but it sure would be nice to see..

I am happy to see her but I am wondering were Luke and Laura joking about Leslie’s relationship with Monica. I thought that was all water under the bridge?

Don

I was always a fan of Susan Brown. I think I remember her from another soap. “Bright Promise” on NBC in the late 60’s or early 70’s. I like to see her come back for the wedding.

Yep, it was water under the bridge. They said their peace at Emily’s funeral. BUT………..I will love ANY scenes they have together and a little argument or two would be fun to watch. They are friends in real life and I think they would enjoy some friction on screen!

@DSM0805 can you please elaborate on the patching up scene between Leslie and Monica? I must have missed Emily’s funeral and not seen that. Thanks!

There is no reply button for me to send this to Jake R directly but here is the link. Lesley/Monica scene starts at 7:17.

@DSM0805-THANK YOU for sending that link. Unfortunately I didn’t get an email saying you replied to me; I just happened to revisit this page and saw your link.

I must not have watched Emily’s funeral because NONE of that looked familiar to me. I wasn’t that steady a viewer during the Julie Farren Phelps era. It was a touching scene though between Leslie and Monica.

It was also nice to see that even with all the budget cuts in those dark days, a funeral with multiple regular cast members in attendance; even Dillon Q. made an appearance. I remember Robin’s funeral from last year and there were all these extras in the church pews-it was embarrassing to watch!

Now i really wish Alan and Rick showed up alive…with them alive and Leslie returning wouldve gave great balance to the show. There arent any men in PC in their age group!

FINALLY!!!!!!! Over the moon about this one and hope she has a bit of a storyline on her own besides just being Laura’s mom, although they are the best mother daughter team ever! Would like to see the rivalry between Lesley and Monica heat up and then perhaps even a Thelma and Louise type adventure for the two of them. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

dsm0805
dsm0805

Oh yes………I am over the moon as well (GHRickLesley) I have been waiting a long time for this and I want Rick back ALIVE! I do want some Monica/Lesley scenes and as you can see she is feisty as ever, LOVE IT!!

Soap royalty – she carried General Hospital before Luke and Laura in the 70,s and early 80,s. SHe was missed during the 50h celebration. Welcome back Ms. Alexander!

Yay! Hoping that the story will address that throw-away line that Ghost Rick had when Tracy accused him of what went down with the mistress and Scott in the attic– “That’s not what happened!”

Karen

That whole story was a bogus bunch of poo. Rick would have never ever been in that situation – bringing back a favorite vet to screw up history like that – those writers of that mess should be brought up on charges!

dsm0805
dsm0805

You said it! A whole lot of damage was done when they ruined him in 2002 and everything his character stood for! I was hoping for better from these writers and I hope they still find a way to pull it off! I need a Rick/Lesley happy ending. My favorite couple of all time.

Jake R.

I honestly thought when I had heard “Rick” was coming back to “GH” for the Fiftieth Anniversary that Luke & Laura were going to find him on “The Haunted Star” or on Cassadine Island. It would turn out he had been kidnapped by the Cassadines and replaced with a lookalike double and that it was the double who got into that trouble in the attic with Laura whom Scott ended up killing. Then Laura’s whole breakdown and comatose state could be blamed on Helena’s curse. Unfortunately none of that happened-it was just a throwaway scene with Chris Robinson.

Great. About time someone on this show was over 50 or at least admits to it.. We need some parents on the show,I guess they think these kids were grown in a cabbage patch..I can only remember seeing laura interact with her grandchildren once. Anna never goes near Emma.Tracy sees more of Michael than his grandmother does,as when will Monica see Danny. Families are where its at. welcome back to Denise and lets hope it doesn’t last for just a week,

Karen

Awesome – I may actually watch the episodes she is part of. I am still pissed that she and Rick never ever got closure. When Rick came back a decade ago for that STUPID storyline with Scott, he was more concerned with Monica and again with the 50th anniversary again with Monica – Lesley was supposedly the love of his life! No fair! He married that vomitous Ginny Blake and went off into the sunset and Lesley returned from the dead and no one bothered to call Rick and tell him his wife was alive! Then he comes back and they don’t even spend a nano second together – UNFAIR!! Give us an “angel” Rick visiting Lesley and give us LONG suffering Rick and Lesley fans our closure!!

Larry

Could not agree more with EVERYTHING you just said!!!

Yep Karen, I have many posts on here already. My favorite daytime actress ever. The Rick/Lesley love story was my favorite. I cannot believe the disrespect GH writers have shown to Rick & Lesley fans. There are obviously a lot of them and they haven’t been a couple for almost 30 years……….just goes to show you how much of an impact they did have! Pleading with GH writers to give us Rick/Lesley fans a happy ending!

I love this page. Everyone is so happy, excited and not constantly PICKING at GH like so many others. GH is in a great place right now thanks to Frank and Ron. I can’t wait to see more from this year on GH! 🙂 YAY!

Lesley’s return could play quite well into the A.J./Elizabeth/Nikolas triangle! With the longtime rivalry with Monica, we can easily see Lesley supporting her grandson while Monica supports her son! For longtime GH viewers like me, what makes it more amazing is that the guys are fighting over the daughter of Jeff Webber, whose brother Rick was married to Lesley, while Jeff’s first wife was none other than….. Monica!!!!

Larry

Been loving all the returning classic characters but THIS is one of the ones I have been waiting for the most!! Love Lesley Webber. Was always one of my favorite characters. And Miss Alexander Is one of my favorite daytime actresses. Loved her on GH and on Another World as Mary!!!

Elated to see her-would love for Rick to come back too

Nancy

Donna, you sound just like me. I too have watched her since I was 10 years old and she instantly became my favorite. She will always be my favorite too.

I am soooooooo glad she is back! I wanted her back for the 50th but I will take her any day! Love her and you said it, the best quadrangle in soap history Lesley./Rick/Monica/Alan! It is what drew me in and I was hooked before the Luke & Laura hype. Today was a great day on GH, Laura, Scotty, Lucy, Luke & Lesley now that is the GH I want to see more of! Would really like some closure with the Rick situation, somehow that has got to be corrected. I don’t care if he is a ghost he needs to visit Lesley! My favorite couple in daytime and I watched all 3 networks at one time or another.

Love that so many others have posted the same thing I have been thinking. So, so happy to see Denise Alexander back on GH as the wonderful, feisty Lesley Webber. Hoping she stays around a long time, and that the debacle with Rick can be rewritten. Also looking for great scenes with Monica. Love the comment above about a “Thelma & Louise” story for them – maybe Lesley & Monica learn that Rick really is alive and team up to go find him and rescue him. THAT would be a story I would watch every day!

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
