Great news out of Port Charles!  Longtime General Hospital fan favorite, Tristan Rogers is reprising his role as Robert Scorpio.

Rogers himself confirmed the news that originated during a Daytime After Dark podcast with ABC executive Nathan Varni.

Varni had mentioned that it was in the plans to bring Scorpio back, adding, “We actually have an interesting story that the writers are working on. ”

Now Tristan took to his Twitter account and tweeted,”I’m coming back. Start work on March 19.”

Will Robert be back to help Anna (Finola Hughes) solve the mystery of the whereabouts of the child she had who’s bio-dad was recently revealed to be the evil Cesar Faison (Anders Hove)? Stay tuned!

So, excited to hear Tristan is on his way back to GH? Comment below!

Looking forward to seeing you, I was not watching when you were on before but I know you were great. The story lines need a bit of a lift and you’ll help a LOT.

i’m pretty sure… “don’t quote me on this ” READ in SOD – soap opera digest Tristan lamented.. he would not return to GH.. unless it was for more than what has been. especially for better story. and of a longer duration for it to mean any thing. sounds logical , right ? I never truly got in to Robert and Holly… I never warmed to Emma Sams I LOVE LOVE LOVE – Robert and Anna… now this is hot I always thought it so “marvel” how Tristan played Robert so … easy going about his relationship WITH Anna.. how… Read more »

Patrick…I’m with you re Robert and Holly. Never got into them as a couple either, or the Holly character for that matter. Hopefully Robert will help shake Anna out of this funk she seems to be in.

Well, Frank probably had to apologize to Tristan for the way Robert was written the past few times. The character is not filler, so Robert must be playing a key role in upcoming story.

Sorry, not even Tristan can make this ugly story watchable. And a promised “big story” means he’s in and out for a few weeks with a few lines at the very best.

Likely in and out. And I am no fan of the lost child story Anna has. Too many lost children in Port Charles. I would accept a recast of Robin and allow Anna to have the family she already has.

nancy dillingham
Guest
nancy dillingham

Neither am I–stretches credulity–and violates Anna’s legacy. Way too far out (like all the other storylines). Not helping with viewership. I’m no longer watching but will come back to GH for Tristan AND Genie. Let’s go, already!

Shay

In the meantime, you are truly not missing much, Nancy…I am also none too thrilled with the Anna lost child storyline…I could have bought it if she had been hypnotized or brainwashed by Faison and the pregnancy occured without her knowledge or consent, but the way it has been written really does beggar belief for those of us who recall Anna as an intrepid WSB agent extraordinaire.

aria
Guest

yes, i’m happy Tristan is coming back, hopefully a better story would be if Robert and Anna had another child together, when they were on the run back in 92, Anna could of been pregnant, in back story, anna and robert were separated after some explosion took place in some boat/ship back in Venezuela and were then presumed dead along w/ Faison if memory serves me right , of course their death took place when both Tristan and finola left GH so this is what happened offscreen, we were just told they died along w/Faison, and why Anna and Robert… Read more »

Oh me too! I still remember the very first time I ever saw him on GH in what late ’79 or ’80? He had on a trenchcoat & it was foggy outside . . . I have loved him ever since even on Y&R where is character is such a jerk. Still love my Tristan!

Welcome back old chap. It’s been a while since you rescued Robin from Jerry Jax and saw her remarry Patrick Drake. I don’t really count the brief stint where you came to Perks with a binder that had pictures of LuLu’s fertilized eggs from Crichton-Clarke.

this Huntington’ disease… is throwing me for a loop. especially on how it’s dealt with Peter August. NOW … Anna is petrified… ( she screwed every thing up ) making sure there were no loopholes… in keeping her daughter with Faison hidden. she’s alarmed about Faison being diagnosed with Huntington disease. so time is off the essence… seeing as how Felicia ( god, she’s so beautiful ) went right over to see Maxie. naturally, I don’t want this passed down to Maxie child. this scare is keeping this story lit. WHO is Anna missing daughter. WOW she’s playing all the… Read more »

Patrick; I haven’t been getting much sleep lately so just in case I misinterpreted you apologies in advance but:

Anna doesn’t have a daughter. Her child is Peter/Henrik. Valentin lied to her when he told her she had a daughter…

I would agree. He is sending her on a wild goose chase. Hopefully he comes clean when he hears about the Huntington’s.

Hi Rebecca…Where did I miss that Valentin had lied to Anna about having a girl instead of a boy? If indeed even the latter is true. There were so many Cassadins, over the years,Anna, Robert, Luke, Robin, etc. in and out of clinics, disguises, in “suspended animation” in the past. Anything could be true or false. Then there is still her own twin sister. Complicated. Regardless, I’m still liking Peter August/Hendrick. Don’t know how he feels about Lulu, but I feel he’s genuine in his concern for Maxie. Loving having Triston/Robert back. He belongs along side of Anna one way… Read more »

Hey Rose… It seemed to me that after Valentin told Anna she had a girl he called Peter and told him he’d thrown Anna off the track and that he (Peter) should stay in town. So, we know Peter is Faison’s son (or at least we and Peter/Henrik, himself) believe him to be… Unless it was purposely written to throw viewers off the track as well, it seemed to me that Valentin has known what happened to Anna’s child all along, never lost track of that child (Peter) and is keeping him a secret from Anna for some reason.

Well, hip. hip hooray! I am a huge fan of the one and only Robert Scorpio, who is cooler than the other side of the pillow.
I am no fan, however, of this dreary, depressing story which has Anna having a baby with her own personal Devil–Faison. I wish they had not gone there.
But if it brings Robert Scorpio back I shall be more forgiving of the bad writing they are affording to Finola Hughes.
Now, give Robert his own intriguing storyline–make it a good one.

Shay
Guest
Shay

And make it last for more than five minutes! The past few times Robert has landed in Port Charles the parting has not been a sweet sorrow, but a doubletake….as in what just happened? One moment Scorpio was there and the next he was gone in the blink of an eye! This charming guy is one of the most popular GH legacy characters ever and he, along with Genie’s Laura and Finola’s Anna, deserves to be feted and honored with storylines that are both substantial and respectful of their Port Charles past.

Del
Guest

Scorpio should never, EVER be used as filler or background, that’s an insult to what this ACTOR & CHARACTER was and brought to GH..he’s still generate to much excitement and still very popular to be used in anything then 1 of the center character, he could definitely filled the void left by Tony Geary, Tristan and Robert Scorpio should’ve filled that void when Tony retired in 2015.

Luckily we havent seen or heard of Colin so maybe he is done with Y&R and GH can use him for a while.

Exactly, Del!…Instead the GH torch was passed from Luke to Sonny….and we know how well the “All Sonny all the time” format has been received!

This show has been so haphazard, and poorly written for decades now, … If they couldn’t build Laura (Genie) back, what hope is there for Scorpio. Soaps in the US these days aren’t about structured story telling, they’re more like an adrenaline rush for folks on valium. I mean no offence to my fellow fans, the only reason I still watch is for the actors, it’s TPTB and the writers who continuously offend.

OMG, Harry! You’ve done it again…Hah! (Even if it was a case of wrong soap, wrong actor, unless you know something about Tristan that we don’t??? Do tell….)

@Harry…The very notion that Faison fathered at least three children of which we are now aware rather sounds as if he were running his own version of the “Lebensborn Program!” (Especially with the compliant Obrecht as his willing babymama twice over….)

I’ll say yes, but I’m still smarting over the Genie Francis debacle. Hopefully, I’ll be able to enjoy this… Love the show, but HATE their decision regarding her. It colors everything about GH right now and I don’t see it subsiding anytime soon. ..Just feel so disrespected… I bet not half as much as Genie, though.

Not a big fan of this stupid story line. Which it would turn out to be a falsehood and they find another reason to have Robert return.

Welcome back Tristan!

“…It colors everything about GH right now and I don’t see it subsiding anytime soon ” so agree… it’s like you start thinking of GH and you draw a blank.. because of knowing that Genie Francis was fired so handily and just so dissed the audience that you can gloss over… and TPTB can wait this out… but it’s THEIR. a gaping hole bringing Tristan Rogers… a male veteran… who is unlike any other. by GOD yes. the Jason / Sam / Drew triangle has already tanked.

hi Grant ..
at least 80% of the characters are crying, truth..
GH has become morbid, tears and tears ..

It is crying soap..
Anna is Jittery Twitching teared up mess .. she no longer roars she lost her strong womanhood, sigh ..

rebecca1

Hello Ms. su0000…

Having emotions, being all misty/weepy has nothing to do with being a strong woman. Anna can kick just as much as as she always did and when she needs to. That has nothing to do with her having emotions. She’s brains, brawn and heart. Those are good things!

What I will grant you is the show in general has focused on a lot of sad stories simultaneously which has no doubt increased the stock to rise in Kleenex as characters and viewers alike are having one group cry after another! 😉

@su…..I agree GH has turned into one big, unnecessary weepfest! Talk about a bunch of over-emoting crybabies…soooo overdone! Of course, I have remained tear-free because I find it impossible to emotionally-invest in most of these inane characters currently inhabiting Port Charles…the majority of the time I just wish they would be sucked up by some big hole in the old terrafirma! Other than some residual fondness for a few legacy players, I simply don’t give a fig what happens to any of these people!.

Robert Scorpio rules Port Charles its just no way that he should only be with Anna, Scorpio should be all over canvas..Consultant the police Dept, checking on the secret WSB recruits in place of PC, visiting family, meeting new folks and just knowing everything that going on..That’s how he always was.Scorpio loom over over where.

I love Robert Scorpio, and I hope he has a successful return. I also hope the love of his life, ‘Holly” is with him. I never could get into Anna. For those who resent the s/l of Anna having a child with Faison, do you all know Anna’s history? She was a double agent, a traitor to her country. When Robert asked her why she betrayed her country, she stated it was for the money. She also lied about meeting Faison when she entered the DVX. Faison’s mother, who was Anna’s nanny, (Nanny McTavish), stated that Anna had been knowing… Read more »

I am super excited for Robert Scorpio’s return. He is my all time favorite GH character. I hope they spark something with Anna and Robert again, it would be fun to watch. Can not wait for Tristan Rogers to grace the screen again. GH just needs to write a story worthy of RXS and Tristan will breathe new life into Port Charles again. Hope they give him quality air time and keep him back for awhile!

I am so thrilled Robert is coming back! But please pleaee please GH dont just use him to pop in and pop out….he is a legacy character and arguably the greatest character on GH ever. Tristan does such a phenomenal job as RXS and deserves to be wrote into a big storyline. The fans want it and it is looooong overdue. We want Robert Scorpio back full time to work next to another legacy character, Anna. These two together, no matter what dynamic, are incredible. Please give us Scorpio amd Devane back!

Beyond excited that Tristan will be back on GH. He has legions of fans…30 years worth and we love Robert. No matter the story he is always

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
