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
Guest

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!

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
