Ah, Dixon! Just who is this guy?  That’s what fans of the ABC soap opera General Hospital have been hoping to find out. Well, it looks like they are about to get some answers when Dixon first appears on the Port Charles canvas on the Thursday, February 18th episode.

Actor Troy Ruptash has been as Dixon, the man Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi) has been reporting to during his mysterious phone calls.  One thing is for sure, Dixon is a bad guy.  His timing for arriving on the GH canvas looks to tie-in to some major story devlopments that kick-off this week.  But, just how long Dixon sticks around remains to be seen.

A Canadian-born actor, Ruptash’s other TV credits include: Maron, Chuck, NCIS: Los Angeles, Justified, and The Mentalist to name just a few.

So, what do you think of Troy Ruptash taking on the role of Dixon?  Is Dixon going to be one helluva badass mobster, or something else? What do you think will go down when Dixon appears? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

All the mob bad-guy stuff is too convoluted to capture my interest. This character is just another in a never ending series of baddies who come on to challenge the Corinthos business and attempt to make Sonny and his mob business look sympathetic in comparison. At this point it’s all tedious. No matter how much Sonny loves his family he is an underworld criminal. GH is my soap and I love it, but why is it so boring, tedious and slow these days? The show has the best cast in daytime and the least interesting story lines. Long live GH!

He is not of the mob, he is Cartel which will have WSB involved, of course..
Dixon has nothing to with Sonny, Sonny will be shown as the good guy by stopping the Cartel gun running..

Thanks for the clarification. I’m sure you’re correct, but those distinctions don’t really change my sense that the story is convoluted and tedious. I appreciate you weighing in with the details. I’ll have to get up to speed with the Cartel before all heck breaks loose!

I agree. The mob stuff, sleazy Paul, and Ava with the Raj guns are not interesting stories. . It is more like a cheap version of a Mission Impossible movie that I can never understand. Really, I just don’t care to understand. Unlike the article says, I didn’t even realize or CARE about some Dixon character.
I am much more interested in what is going on with Tracy.

Ahh, Mister Media.
As I keep repeating….almost verbatim to what you said….it is a ploy, contrived to make us ‘accept’ Sonny…embrace him even, as the all-American mob boss, family man. He is ensconced in his own world of coffee beans and a fleet of brigands working with and for him.
As yourself, I love all my soaps…lol, all three of them. So, no matter the slowness, no matter the tedium, I’ll stay put.
Great post. Mister M.

So agree with folks on this about Sonny and his morals. So, what is he selling? Drugs? We got to see people say oh I draw the line at guns. BS. GH hints at his nefarious deeds but what are they? Drugs or prostitution or extortion or illegal gambling or arson for hire or?

I’m so sick of Sonny and the mob. Now Morgan is Guido Jr….. ugh

I agree that the show has terribly boring. At this point I don’t know what they could do to make it better. I know that the new writers had to finish some of the old story lines and also wanted a chance to make these storylines their own. Unfortunately I think most are fast forwarding or simply not tuning in as much they used to.The simply fact that they post spoilers daily and you know who is going to be on the next day doesn’t help much.

I know they need more in the mob than just Sonny. Who knows what they are doing with Julian these days. I believe he needs to be more than just the other half of Julexis. Every week they seem to add an additional cast member or two. Which means we hardly see those that we really want to see. How many cast members are too many cast members? There have been so many really great cast members that have been killed off or just written off that this all just doesn’t make sense. We have Ian Buchanan that could quite… Read more »

As far as Rebecca Herbst leaving on GH, going to Days, make a brand new character for her. If Michael Easton is coming back, make him a new character.

@Layla Kalich….Very well put! The last thing this show needs is another generic baddie….especially if Julian would simply abandon his full-time job of sexing up Alexis, then he might actually have something to contribute to the present-day GH mobwar! You are exactly right about needing Tristan Rogers back……pronto! Making him central to the plot along with Anna can maybe save the day for both Port Charles and this hideously overcrowded, underwhelming soap. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….there is absolutely too much deadweight associated with today’s GH….most of us skip through entire episodes because the characters—mainly those… Read more »

Generic baddies are usually brought in to prop up the baddies that are on contract! Also, generic baddies are used to help the PCPD actually make an arrest or kill someone! Robert Scorpio should be signed to a lifetime contract!

Today, after Paul left Anna’s house, she picked up Susan’s picture to look at it; the scene automatically changed to Hayden……is that a sign? Oh, well. We shall see.

@jimh.
I tend to agree with you, on all counts, Jimmy. I must admit I’m sort of stumped on this one. Paul seemed so sincere today. He is hard to read. He’s got that kind of face that scrambles my brain….is he? Or is he not?
Anna, also gave the impression she believed him. But, things may change in a New York. It is Port Charles, NY, afterall. Lol

Hi Ceec:

Nice read, on Paul… is he? or is he not?

@CeeCeeGirl….It would be a refreshing development were Paul to be revealed as an actual good guy, although his behavior up until now has been so sleazy, that it may truly beggar belief to suggest we could forgive and forget his already sullied reputation were it to be revealed as a mere cover for infiltrating the underbelly of Port Charles and its criminal element. I’m particularly loathe to see him permanently attached to the likes of Hayden as her father….they have been trying every which way to concoct a palatable scenario to logically justify this guttersnipe’s ongoing existence and ingratiate her… Read more »

So, you think Paul as a henchman? In that case, he must be working for someone above him in the mob hierarchy, if he is, indeed, a baddie. You don’t think he is the top cat? Hmmmmm. Food for thought, my friend.

Honestly, General Hospital has an already bloated cast. They shouldn’t be creating new characters when they should be focused on the veterans and the heart of the show. They should be focused on keeping veterans, in fact. I’m beyond tired of mob characters and how new ones are constantly introduced. It’s a joke at this point.

hi Samantha..
during the past 6ish months, Jean and Shelly have not written mob anything to mention..
They have fully focused on couples/love in the afternoon..
They have given a great amount time writing their version of romance/couples, that was their goal..
To say you’re tired of the mob when there has been no mob anything, then you are stuck in the Guza era..
I would be so dang happy if during the past 5 months there had been one, just one mob story, there has not..
mob talk of nothing much or an incident, but no real mob stuff..
I want the high drama back..

I respectfully disagree. Everything having to do with Paul Hornsby is mob related. Everything having to do with Carlos is mob related. Ava’s story line is mob related. Julian’s story line is mob related. Ana’s story line is mob related. Morgan’s story is mob related. Johnny’s appearance was mob related. Sonny’s motivation for hiding his condition is mob related. The gun running story is mob related. I agree that there have been no “mob war” outbreaks of violence and that there has been a greater emphasis on couples, but the mob theme permeates the show.

Right, Mister Media.
Moreover, Sonny has made it clear again and again that he cannot get out–he will always be a Kingpin.
The other day I almost blew a gasket when Michael spoke glowingly of how Sonny was pardoned for murdering his father in cold blood. Then he apologized again for doing the right thing by taking Avery away from him.
We wait for Sonny to get his comeuppance for so long–we wait for justice and then we finally get it only to have it snatched away. It was nice having Michael Quartermaine back for two minutes. I miss him.

Phil, GH may have a mob history, however, since Sonny started dominating GH under Bob Guza, the mob has become centric, hence, mobcentric and worse yet, Sonnycentric. And it just keeps getting worse. Mobsters used to play the good guys and gave the good guys someone to fight. Now we have killers such as Sonny, Julian and Ava leading the good life while the bodies of their victims grow cold in their graves.

The best couple on GH is Julian and Alexis right now. Also, I love my Sonny & Carly back together. Sonny is a veteran, as is Carly. Jason and Sam too; their chemistry is great. Brad’s Asian mob family would be a great addition. The mob is a GH staple, and has been for 30 years. GH practically invented action storylines on soaps. Long live GH organized crime!

I agree. The show was going well, but suddenly the crime stuff is taking over again. I don’t care about the Hornsby’s or Jeromes or other new families. The show is called “General Hospital”, with an emphasis on Hospital. The previous core families like the Quartermaines, Cassadines, Hardy-Webbers should be focused on, not treated as side characters. The one new character I’m interested in is Griffin Munro, but that’s because he’s a doctor.

Thats a tall order you have there Cee. I was thinking good/evil because Michael was on the show as other types of characters and I was thinking it would be a change up for him.

@Timmm.
Yes, ‘they ‘ are trying to enhance Paul’s ‘goodness’. I said as much. It is so typical, such standard fare for GH to do this…..For whatever reason, TPTB changed their minds mid-way, making Paul the good guy.
Needless to say, I hope, Anna stays out of his orbit, romantically. Inasmuch as I, also, enjoyed his painfully personal tete-a-tete with her, I do not really like Paul; that’s not to say I do not admire Richard….he is a creditable thespian.

@CeeCee….I agree we are most fortunate to be welcoming Michael Easton back to Port Charles—in any way, shape or form—but if he is indeed to be the most formidable of all Cassadines, the infamous Valentin, then he shall be undeniably evil….unless there is going to be yet another case of revisionist history perpetrated by the writers. Never say never…..

As a long time viewer of GH I am finding it more and more difficult to watch the show. Sonny is not sympathetic. The mob stories have ruined General HOSPITAL!!! I fear it will be canceled soon. It is boring with many unlikable characters. Jason and Sam have ZERO chemistry. Sam is on way too much as is Sonny. Sonny and Carly reuniting was a huge mistake. Carly was so much better without him. They have no chemistry!! Numerous cast members we go weeks without seeing and storylines are dropped out of nowhere. It’s a hot mess.

Awww…so sorry to hear that, jimh! Do feel better soon.

As for Britt, I miss her, too. She and her “mutter” were the best remaining remnants of the Ron C regime, and substituting Hayden for the wildly wicked Dr. Westbourne in Nik’s bed and affections is but a pale imitation of the original’s chemistry with the Cassadine heir.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”
