The hits keep a-coming from the powers-that-be at GH! Exciting news today is that Tristan Rogers is set for a major return as Robert Scorpio on General Hospital!  With November Sweeps upon us, look for the return of Scorpio to have significant importance.

Rogers told Soap Opera Digest, “I am feeling really good right now! My connection to GH and to this character is so strong. I think the fans will see a Robert who is the same, but also different … and there’s a reason for that difference. I was very excited about the story when it was explained to me.”

Look for Tristan to first be seen back on the PC canvas on the Thursday, November 15th episode!

So soapers, what brings Robert back to town?  Does he know that Anna is in danger from this “Duke” character?  Or, does he know where Robin is being held against her will?  So many questions! Let us know your thoughts!

GH needs Robert Scorpio and Laura Spencer/Alan Q and Lucky/Scotty Baldwin/Lucy Coe and GH is basically complete. How could the ratings not go up.

Lets hope Tristán gets a contract. I doubt it though. Valentini is a budget nazi and he uses all his spare money for the One lifers and cheap newbies . Robert will be used for the sweeps robin tease. Cartini will continúe to string naive viewers with the unrealistic
promise of a permanent return of Kim mccollough. We need Long term story for Tristán. Cartini need to concentrate more on Gh legacy characters and stories instead of the new junk theyve concocted like kate/connie and trey.

I totally disagree that FV & RC uses the budget on the crossovers whom have been with GH for near a year now..
And during that year, perhaps you should count ,all the old time favorite vets brought back to GH and also the new characters he has brought on ..
Then see how the budget has spent on vets returning and new characters before pointing to the crosser-overs.
I do not understand the bitterness some have toward FV and RC for bringing talent over from OLwhen they are so minor in compassion to the vets brought back and new characters..

The One lifers are far from minor. Roger Howarth literally eats the show. And iris alderson got a contract by simply calling Valentíni to congratulate him on getting the Gh job. Roger , kris and micheal easton got contracts before finola hughes. Jerry ver dorn is also on his way. Also like i sai before he wastes so much money on lackluster actors like Richard steinmetz, Eric Valdez, lindsey Morgan and Kelly Sullivan. They are all horrible. And I dont buy the vet smoke screen. Kristina Wagner does zip. John York nothing but window dressing. Robin mattson has been turned… Read more »

Well he obviously has faith in them, that’s quite clear. But he also has encountered 4 soap regimes in the past 4 years and has voiced his displeasure about 3 of them (Guza/Phelps, MAB and FV/RC; the fourth being Sri Rao on NS2 which he raved about). Moreover, fans have been equally unhappy with his stints on those same three (the last on GH with him missing Robin’s funeral to go after a son that’s not even his! I saw the message boards there, the hate was palpable). I’m not sure what GH has done this time to get into… Read more »

GH of old were his Glory Days…he just wants to relive them. And I want him to!!
I just hope that CarTini are respectful of him (unlike they are of Duke) and don’t turn him into some psycho killer.

Guest

So far Cartini have been completely disrespectful to GH’s glory days. Heather is a Carrión caricature, Anna has been stuck with geriátric luke, Robert has been on screen as much as epiphany or the Qs, felecia is barely window dressing . And now Duke is a a power mad killer. This is not the gh I watched for 4 decades. I too have grown to hate gh over the last decade. Besides marginalizing and bastardizing the rich history Cartini has filled the show with useless posees like Kate, connie, trey and Christina. I still find myself ffing most of the… Read more »

Thanks, I certainly agree with you too.

It’s wonderful they’re bringing back familiar faces. But when you have too many eggs in your basket, eggs crack. You can reel some viewers back in just by telling them their favourite will return, but when the lack of airtime or the horrible storyline inevitably befall said favourite, you curse TPTB and wonder why they were ever brought on in the first place. Everyone else will feel this way in a few weeks. We just got there before them ;).

.Patrick Jackie Zemen said in an interview in SOD that they said they did not have the money in their budget to bring her back I find that quite amusing since we pay big bucks to OLTL characters go figure. And as far as the rumor about too much plastic surgery I can name several on that show right now who look worse then she ever thought of.

He has come back to pull Duke’s eyebrows to the back of his head! Just kick Duke off this show or whoever he is. Just please tell me he is not involved with Todd Manning. Welcome back Tristan someone finally figured out you were the one we all watched in the 80’s.

Oh I love it when the “perfect storm” happens to take care of unfinished business, in this case…Robert, Luke, Duke and Anna. Looking forward to great fun, dark corners and drama. I’m really glad GH is bringing back some of the more “mature” characters in a bigger way, including Monica, Tracy, and even Heather. Their talent shines through, and I’m sure the newer, younger actors have things to learn from them.

FINALLY!!!! Welcome Back Tristan Rogers! I’ve been hoping for month’s that you would be brought back to GH. I never missed any of the storylines during the time you where on. Those storylines with you interacting with Luke and Laura, Sean and Tiffany and most importantly the fantastic WSB , Frisco Jones, and your beloved Robin and the love of your life Anna DeVane. You are the man to get to the bottom of whatever sleazy motives this Duke imposter has. Also, you will be the one to find Robin! They have to keep you on for a long, long… Read more »

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE him. Hope he stays on GH forever. The chemistry with him, Anna, Luke-oh it is ALL GOOD. Can’t wait.

I must say (even though I detest Duke for what he did to Jason) Duke sure looked unusually sexy & gorgeous today. He did not look so great on DAYS recently. He looked way younger today or something. Anway, CANNOT believe all the awful things he has done-will he get away with it like Jerry always does?

THIS is a reason to go back to GH. I was so disappointed in how FV sent Robert away and gave us a convoluted and goofy reason why. Big fail there, RC. But they might just redeem themselves by bringing us our soap god, Tristan Rogers. Robert Scorpio makes PC a better place.

Were CarTini in charge when that horrible story line happened? I thought it was before they came on board.
If they DID write that drivel, they have a lot of making-up to do!

The Robin/K-Mac death story was essentially “in the can” when Cartini arrived. In fact, it was Frank that convinced K-Mac to do the short stints we’ve already seen.. They will work around her schedule-and hopefully Tristan’s stint is the beginning of Robin’s resolution.

Jules
Guest

^ Troy is right, but they were in charge of Robert’s arrival and his contributions then. RC wrote him off in that uncharacteristic, pathetic way before his daughter’s funeral. TR was quoted as saying he would have stayed a little longer. It was so badly handled! They should be ashamed of themselves. They aren’t, but they should!

jenny

Here’s hoping he’s back for a long haul this time. And let Robert be the one who rescues Robin. It would redeem greatly his not being at the funeral and it would help Robert feel he didn’t fail his daughter. That morgue scene and the bridge after showed how Robert was in pain feeling he failed his little girl. By being the one to bring her home would not only bring joy to her family having her back but lift the guilt off his back he mistakenly put there.

ok Now Cartini has a chance to right the wrong of Luke with Anna.. I am so happy that Robert will return,and I want him to stay. .Duke also gets a by .he put the death bullet in Jason.Zombie is dead hooray. Could he also please take out Sonny. If not Duke let it be AJ he deserves some revenge. he did nothing to Sonny,and Sonny stole his child. But now Michael is such a useless piece who cares if he ever remembers just how much AJ sacrificed to get his son back.Michael doesn’t have a clue what AJ went… Read more »

Love Tristan Rogers as Robert Scorpio. So glad he is coming back. Just finished watching all of his storyline on youtube from the time he arrived in Port Charles in 1980 until he left in 1992. The way he was written after finding out about Robin’s death was terrible. Robert would never have acted that way. He would never have let Anna go throgh that alone. Even when he was with Holly and Katherine he always was there for Anna and Robin. That’s what upset Holly and Katherine. By the way I loved the story line with Katherine. I think… Read more »

Right where he belongs! Tristan Rogers brings all his magic back to GH. How great to see the characters of Robert and Anna back with that old ease and chemistry. Now, that’s a GH storyline we have longed for.
Now we need Genie Francis to complete the GH canvas. Wouldn’t Laura love to be a surrogate for Lulu and Dante? What a storyline that would be for the 50th anniversary and to complete the Spencer circle!

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

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.

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.
