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!

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

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!

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.

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 »

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

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.

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.

@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!

hi Grant ..
at least 80% of the characters are crying, truth..

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! 😉

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!

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (the late Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
