Fantastic news today via Soap Opera Digest!  Fan favorite, Tyler Christopher the dashing dark prince of the Cassadine clan, has signed a new contract with General Hospital to stay put as Nikolas!

Tyler expressed his enthusiasm for working with head honcho Frank Valentini and the entire GH team when he related to SOD: “It took us a few months to work out the details, but I signed last week. I’m really happy about it. I love the show and I’m having a great time.”

So that means Nikolas will be sticking around in Port Charles! Who then should Nikolas be paired up with romantically? Elizabeth, or someone new?  Share your thoughts!

Actually, I think that Nicolas and Sabrina might make an interesting couple. I’m not really sold on her relationship with Patrick. Another possibility would be Britt. I know there are people who love his relationship with Elizabeth, but there’s a sense of entitlement with Nicolas and it comes out in a big way with Elizabeth. I’m also a little tired of women dating multiple men in one family.

great news! love him and as more leave…Steve Burton, Brandon Barash, Scott Reeves…Bradford Anderson going off contract…it’s nice to have a familiar great character come back on board!

I still kinda like the Liz/AJ pairing so I’m curious to see where that’ll go. Unless…they can find someone else great for AJ because I really want to see him treated fairly this time ’round.

Back to the question? Yay! for Tyler!

I would like Nikolas to be a handsome Casanova :).
He doesn’t need to be hooked to anyone, he should play the field and have great adventures with all types of women ..
GH needs one man, just one, who doesn’t tie up his life with one woman, and go through all the trauma of a love that will surely have tons of problems and end..(they all do)
I would like Nikolas to not get attached..

YAY!!! I cried when he appeared as a surprise a few weeks back – I’m so glad he’s back, he’s just one of the real ones.

Great news – thank you!

I’m so happy he signed! Love him! I hope they bring on someone new for a love interest!

Could NOT be more thrilled over this development! Tyler is a beautiful actor and Nikolas is a legacy character that can work in so many facets on the show. I am LOVING the Nik/Liz/AJ triangle and love how Ron Carlivati has written for and how Tyler and Becky have played this round of the Nikolas and Elizabeth relationship. If it had been done like this the first time around, it probably wouldn’t have offended so many fans. Also love how Nik has been interacting with his family like Laura, Alexis, and Lulu. Bravo GH, great job!

I couldn’t agree more. When they first hinted at a Liz/Nik pairing (when Lucky was still around) I could see the chemistry. They just went about it the wrong way. They ruined what could have been an awesome pairing. I hope they, the writers, will do it right this time. I like AJ & Liz, but I have a feeling they will do a Carly & AJ thing since Carly & Franco will not make sense at the moment. Now, if only they will break Sabrina & Patrick up. That pairing just feels icky.

Thank God..He Is Much Needed..Love him!!

Good news but now gh needs to show more of Laura, Scotty, Duke, Anna, Lucy, Kevin and Leslie! Then it will be great again! Would like to see Nik paired with Ava for awile…i feel they could have great chemistry…then maybe later he could hook up with Liz but i like Liz with A.J. at the moment!

BTripp

Never thought about him with Ava! Maybe an Ava/Nik/Liz/AJ foursome kinda thing.

You are spot on with that comment. Give us the characters we love.

Now i think id like to see him with Connie…

I was thinking Tracy- she needs her great love and he is a handsome prince— and thought they worked well together during the whole relish thing. Know it is out there, but really like to see Tracy get her dream.

Ces

I agree!! GH brings Genie Francis back, the most beloved character on this show to do what exactly???

jimh
jimh

I know Laura is supposed to be on her honeymoon with Scotty but why cant they show them having romantic moments like Scotty wine and dine her, take her dancing or just walking along a moonlite beach? Im very much for romance…something lacking in all soaps including the two online reboots.

ces
ces

I agree Jim, if they were trying to sell Scotty & Laura again, at least SHOW why she fell in love with him again. Then again, I don’t believe she did fall in love, just felt convenience with him, but surely they didn’t bring her back for this.

There definitely has been a serious lack of romance on Days & GH both, agreed.

That’s great about Tyler staying on as Nicholas. He is very good at his job. Thank you to all the cast and crew and everyone else who are striving to keep General Hospital alive. I have been watching it since I was about 15.That’s about 40 years. It has always been a great show. Are they ever going to bring Robin back?

AJ
AJ

I think that decision is Kimberly McCollough’s. I think TPTB have said if she wants to come back, she can.

Anyone BUT Liz please!! There’s something really sleezy about taking up with the love of your brother’s life- Liz seems to know this as she pursues her relationship with AJ. There are a few single ladies such as Maxie, Samantha, & Christina- or maybe bring someone new & exciting to the show. But, leave the trainwreck that was Nik & Liz just where it is- a mistake in the past!!!

donna

christina would be related.maybe sam would work

Lynn A

Sam & Christina are both his cousins! So that’s a big NO!

If Patrick and Sabrina don’t work out she might be a good match for Nicolas. She’s got that pure-of-heart innocent thing that Emily had.

Nicholas and SAM — oh yeah !! Not Elizabeth – she’s his brother’s ex — they already went down that road — and they shouldn’t have !!! Leave it in the past !!! thanks!

Thrilled to hear that Tyler (Nikolas) is staying in Port Charles. He has always been a favorite of mine. I like him with Elizabeth, and I do think they will probably have the Elizabeth/Nikolas/AJ triangle play out a bit, but whether or not they ultimately pair him with her, we shall see. I think he would work well romantically with most any one. I just hope he does not end up with Brit (aka Britch), although that could be an interesting move, as he certainly will not take her nonsense.

I am just so happy he signed!!! If he can’t be with Elizabeth… how about a fling with Carly? I always thought that might be interesting. Glad he is sticking around!

that would be interesting. i was thinking since michelle stafford as left y&r they could hire her for a love interest for nickolas

Great news, he was missed. I think him and Laura Wright have good chemistry; why not try him and Carly? BTW all, Sam and Nicholas are related!

l am really enjoying Nicholas and Liz this time around!

Mary SF

I like Elizabeth with AJ, so personally I would like to see him with Tracy. She needs her great love and I think a handsome prince fits the bill. I know she is older, but I think there was some chemistry there– or am I way out on a limb here? Does anyone else think Nicholas and Tracy would be good match?

jimh

I think it could work with him and Tracy…i liked their scenes together…but id like to see him first with either Ava or Connie!

I love him and I wish the great couple of gh would come back. emily!!!!!!!!!!! I still wish emily and nik would somehow get together and somehow bring her back. I just loved them…..

Sally

I like Liz and AJ together – so maybe Carly – she is older but she needs a man right now!

I think Nikolas should be paired with a new character that has a familiar face. I thought he had a lot of chemistry with Sarah Brown when they shared a short storyline several years ago. Sarah is such a chameleon she could easily come back as a third character and possibly even play Claudia’s long lost sister. With so many high profile vacancies left at GH Sarah Brown is exactly what the show needs to fill the gaping whole it has on the powerhouse front and the chemistry between Sarah and Tyler is undeniable.

Hello….. Nikolas cannot be with Sam. They are cousins or something like that. Alexis is Sam’s Mother & is she is Nikolas’s cousin.. Creepy! Can’t stand Elizabeth, never have been able to stomach her. Sorry 🙁 I loved him with Emily & with Courtney. Carly, no way…. Nikolas is classy, even though she tries, Carly is not. Maxie is too young for him I think. Sabrina maybe. A real twist would be Brit since she is Faison’s daughter. Wow wouldn’t Helena have a royal cow with that???? Hmmmm, Sabrina, someone new or Brit would be my vote. This could be interesting. Have Brit straighten her crap out & start a relationship with someone besides Patrick. I think underneath her Mother’s Witchy influence, she might actually be decent. We’ll have to wait & see though.

They’ve never revealed the father of Britt’s baby. What if she and Nicolas had a one night stand and she has no idea who he is. I don’t think they’ve had scenes together yet. That would be a hoot.

Patrick
Patrick

before I read everyone’ post – I really like the triangle of Nicholas – Liz – AJ.

quite frankly… i like the big loveable Lug AJ…. I think he makes a great father, as well.

so… this will certainly heat things up for this threesome…. and honestly…

GH needs some passion, romance… and intrigue again.

C’mon GH… show us Anna and Duke… and…. Mac and Felicia… last i saw.. Mac was telling Felicia they didn’t need to get married to be married…. C’mon… this is love and romance.

Sue

Welcome back Tyler, but does that mean that Bunheads has been cancelled? 🙁 Loved you on that show too! I like Nik & Liz, but think AJ deserves a break. Now that Steve is gone, how about Olivia & Nik? She’d be a great mom to his son. Connie would be good too, like a second chance at motherhood, but Sonny needs a strong women in his life to ground him. Ava & Luke would be great too! Although I do like Luke w/ Tracy. Right now I see the direction of the writers is to get a younger audience to watch. Lots of teenage romance going on. 🙂

stay away from Elizabeth 🙁

Cat

My first wish if for Elizabeth. No, way with Britt unless she REALLY cleaned her act up! I’m new to the show so I can’t say about any of his past romances. I know one thing for sure she needs to be special. It could be that girl next door scenario or somebody he just met that seems to give him grief.

When is Laura (Genie Francis) going to get a chance to ask her two children how they are both progressing????? Talk about a fractured show! Doesn’t matter who is supposedly on “contract” (as I understand Genie Francis is also), they have very precious screen time. It’s the tweens and teens that are hogging the air. Why???? They are NOT the ones that are watching the show. They are “otherwise engaged.” Why are TPTB so out of touch? Don’t they know their audience is the people who have watched for many years–and are looking–in vain–for the characters they love? Too simple for TPTB to understand that, I guess.

nancy dillingham

The show is no longer GH. It’s filled with characters from other shows whose just come on the show with no background or no connection–or a tenuous one at best– to the GH we have watched so many years. Nothing or no one of substance to identify with or feel empathy for or root for. Everyone of the “new” (from other shows) characters are distasteful, unlikable, or plain mean. That’s not what I tune in to see. We were all duped during the 50th anniversary happenings/bringbacks into believing that our favorite characters were going to be given something to do and be treated with dignity at least. Look what they have done to Laura’s character (dressed Genie Francis in appallingly unflattering clothes and made her empy-headed and dull–the cardinal sin. Pity poor Genie! Why is she always treated so shabbily after helping to save the show and giving so many years in service to the show. Shame! Shame!

please tell me this is true… and most off Tiffany and SEAN coming back would make it even BETTER… Rumorville: According to a tweet from @max_tuneage, John Reilly (Sean Donely) is taping two episodes for GH in mid-July. Apparently, this tidbit comes via Sharon Wyatt (Tiffany Hill). If you recall from our earlier Rumorville items, Sean and Tiffany’s daughter is due to arrive in Port Charles this summer.

This is great news. As a longtime TC fan, it’s gratifying to see him so valued by TPTB. As far as couplings go, I have no real preference. Having said that, though, I wouldn’t mind seeing what kind of chemistry Nikolas and Ava (Maura West) might have.

Love it! I was sad to see him go in the middle of a great story. This is out chance to see the Liz/Nick story play out the right way.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
