Tristan Rogers Teases His Return To General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

Great news for longtime General Hospital fans, Robert Scorpio is on the way and will be on the canvas in Port Charles soon!  His portrayer, Tristan Rogers teased his return to his popular role on the ABC daytime drama series tweeting:  “Alert: Robert Scorpio sighted in Port Charles.”

Now ABC Soaps In Depth also reports that Rogers will be back for a short story arc.  Tristan explained while he doesn’t want to say too much, he can reveal that: “There are three distinct stories I seem to be involved in. And that’s okay because that’s the way the character always was.”

Just because Rogers is doing a short GH stint, does not mean he won’t also be appearing on his role as Colin Atkinson on The Young and the Restless.   Depending on the timing of the airing episodes, Rogers just might be on two major network soaps at the same time.

So, excited to hear that Tristan is back to GH for a bit?  Will Scorpio be on the case and help resolve some of the major mysteries engulfing Port Charles right now? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

yes, I crazy excited about it. Finally, some soap news I’m actually really happy about.

Yes, yes, great news to me also–anytime when Scorpio is in the mix is a good time–that twinkle in the eye and the sarcastic barb is always welcoming. Come home, Tristan and Scorpio!

I think it has something to do with Laura???

Wouldn’t that be nice? Genie and Tristan had great chemistry when Scorpio “romanced” Laura on a date–and Luke got jealous!
And Genie can match Tristan with the improv/barbs!

Wanted to say also that I loved what Genie made of her scene with Jane today. Genie seems to be at peace with the debacle that Tony Geary made of the Luke and Laura iconic love story. She looked lovely and serene in the scene. She grounds GH and gives it a sensibility sorely needed. I look forward to her romantic story line with Jon Lindstom as Laura and Kevin find their way together.

Love Tristan coming back. But he belongs to Anna…”it’s always been Anna.” Love Genie with Kevin. They could have a great double date. But first let’s solve Laura/Helena will and the Cassadine/Nik mysteries together.

Nancy, that was when Robert Scorpio mysteriously erupted out of the fog on the docks wearing his London Fog.
Really, even back then I wanted Laura to forget the hysterical blond Afro and go on a plane with Robert leaving Luke alone with his ego.

It would be nice if he could share a scene or two with Laura for old times sake. I was hoping it would happen when he was on set last time, but it didn’t. Remember when Mack told Robert: “Did you know Laura was back in town?” I was hoping it was a tease that Robert and Laura would run into each other at the Metro Court or something. Didn’t happen. Sigh.

I wish he would come home for good. The temporary stints leave me deeply unsatisfied. I hate the Colin character on Y&R, but love Robert Scorpio, the super WSB Spymaster! Tristan come home!

I like him much better as Robert than I do as Colin.
Look forward to the storylines he will be involved in.

I thought Tristan was on contract at Y&R—doesn’t matter because I’ll take Robert Scorpio any way I can even if he is just on loan from Y&R. I like him as Colin but Scorpio will always be the guy I remember him for the most. I miss his adventures with Luke and Laura.

Nope recurring. Love both characters so as long as he is recurring on both, I can watch him on both. Win, win.

It’s because, back then, it was clear they were having fun together and were friends. Viewers can always sense it and it is so much fun to go along for the ride. And Gloria Monty welcomed and encouraged ad libbing. I think, out of respect, the veterans are still allowed to ad lib but the younger actors are expected to stay on script at all times. If what Tony Geary said in one of his interviews is true, the scripts today tell the actors when they are supposed to begin crying and when they are supposed to laugh, etc. He… Read more »

dmr: Your statement reminds me of something I was complaining to my husband about the other day. Soaps used to have A LOT of comedy in them back in the day, and it was great. Watching DOOL in 2016 feels like a descent into madness sometimes. Thank goodness GH has some comedy with Franco and Dr. Finn, respectively. Ava and Scottie make me laugh when they share scenes. Diane makes me laugh. I’m grateful there is some humor. I would love some more. Maybe viewership would go up if there were more laughs. There is never a shortage of tears… Read more »

And since DROOL doesn’t know what to do with Wally K, can we get another Quartermain for Momma Tracy?

I knew it would happen and I heard it would be in October? Glad to hear, they waste him over at Y&R and he is rarely on! Sign him to a full time contract ABC! I hope he either is involved in the Valentin story or the Hornsby story. Either way, Robert and Anna live happily ever after! PLEASE!

Yes, sign him pronto–and do let Robert and Anna have a story–and live happily ever after, of course. 🙂

Oh, su0000, I always enjoy your comments and you often make me laugh, but there was some great stuff between Jill and Colin at Y&R. Jean & Shelly gave us some great stuff, Mariah, Sage, Ian Ward and the very clever way they redeemed Sharon by having her ECT wipe her memory of changing Summer’s DNA results and Phyllis on the staircase. We really don’t know what happened during their time at Y&R and it’s possible the story pace and lack of follow through on stories during their time there was the Executive Producer’s influence or the network’s doing.

GH needs Tristan Rogers much more than Y&R does right now. Robert Scorpio is a staple character on the show, and they should consider putting him back on contract and pairing him with Anna when she returns. I’m not feeling Anna/Andre at all.

ill take Robert Scorpio any day back on GH. Collin on YR is boring and always causing trouble.Unlike Robert Scorpio who is exiting and always takes care of everything.

Weve all watch RobertScorpio team up with Luke and Laura,Holly Sutton,Anna Devane,and several countless stars on GH. When a character like Robert has as many years countless story lines. You never get board when Robert or Anna,Or Luke team up. Its one adventure after the other.Please bring him back full time Anna and Laura need him.

Does anyone have any idea what number FV is aiming for as far as cast expansion? I think he’s aiming for the thousands, lol!!!!
Seriously anyone have an educated, or otherwise guess as to why he keeps making the cast so large? I’m a Scorpio fan so that’s great, but why is the cast so big????? Anyone?

nancy dillingham
Guest
nancy dillingham

I believe that he thinks he is “pacifying” the longstanding, loyal fans by “dropping in” a character they love all the while going stubbornly forward with his own selfish agenda–to cast his “pets” and “favorites” and “slyly” (NOT!) cram them down our throats! You think???? 🙂 He and Tony Geary seem to have one thing in common: they don’t care about the fans at all. Ego for sale, anyone?

Rebecca1
Guest

Sorry but I think that’s a ridiculous statement. GH is a business. Frank’s not running community theatre. Whatever his reasons are and no matter how many individuals are annoyed, IF the goal is to keep the show going than he’s casting the way he believes will do so. If there!s some corporate plan to sabatage the show and justify it with low ratings than that’s the deal. I would think Frank wants GH to be a success; it’s the genre he knows and I doubt, unless ABC’s offered him a sweet deal when GH kicks the bucket, that he’d purposely… Read more »

This is great news! Tristan as Scorpio really adds that certain something to the GH canvas that is greatly needed. Too bad it is only a short story arc but maybe impactful enough to get TPTB into gear and making it more permanent. I would love to see him interact with Laura and of course Anna. And…I really hope the stories are strongly character driven. Too tall an order?

I wonder if Robert’s return has anything to do with the Luke new storyline. Maybe Luke is in Greece with Robert, tracking Valentin.
Wouldn’t it just be rich, if Robert and Luke saved Nik?

CeeCee…Back in the day Scorpio and Luke were practically best friends and had a lot of adventures together. So perhaps Anthony Geary is stepping out of retirement again??? Great GH days! I’m still a Luke fan (even with the Fluke fiasco…there were pieces of that story that were great soapy fun and Anthony Geary was phenomenal in his dual role…but I digress). Love Scorpio and am thrilled he’s back. Hoping he actually he gets to act, lol. His last visit they cast him as wallpaper..just hung at the back of the room at his daughter’s wedding and barely said a… Read more »

One of my favorite actors on G.H. The show always the best when he is on.

Welcome back! Wish he could stay longer.

I love Robert Scorpio. So glad he’s making an appearance. GH should give him a contract because Y&R does not use him. He’s only on once in a blue moon. And as much as Anna loved Duke, I always wanted her back with Robert. They are one of my favorite couples. And Tristin is much more interesting as Robert than he is as Colin.

He isn’t on contract with either show. He’s on recurring status with both shows, which is how he’s able to appear on Y&R and GH. If he was on contract with one show, he could not appear on the other. Same goes for Wally Kurth on DOOL and GH.

Maybe the skeleton was Ethan. Not surprising for a son to have a few pieces of Dad’s jewelry if that is the correct word for the stuff Luke wore. And if so, maybe the reason the DNA didn’t match is because he is really Robert’s son.

I cannot wait for Robert’s return. I just hope Holly is with him. They are the epitome of class, romance, and they sizzle. Robert and Anna only were together for Robin, and because Duke and Holly were supposedly dead. All Robert and Anna did was argue. Please let Robert and Holly have their HEA! This is what both actors want!

You cannot just bring someone back. Holly needs a purpose and that wouldnt entail a long stay for Tristan and it is only a drop by. Maybe next time?

Always nice to see Tristan back but since I’m sure it is only for a few episodes, it’s hard to get real into whatever story he’ll be involved in. GH should dump 20 characters and hite him bk permanently.

They use to show kids playing at the house while the grown ups were having conversations. Monica has been on the show the longest, when are they… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

Courtesy/ABC

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
