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!

what wonderful news…so happy for us and for Christopher…

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

God, he’s so good looking.

This is good news I have missed him.

someone new.

Very good news today tyler is staying on general hospital. tyler is a terrific actor. maybe nikolas can come out of the closet. please make him gay. pair him with felix. that would be great.

i agree with you billy. nikolas should come out of the closet. that would be a very intresting storyline indeed. tyler is one hot stud billy. you probably agree with me. he is so buff and

Awesome news!!!!! Nicholas and Elizabeth….HOT!!!!

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?

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!!!

christina would be related.maybe sam would work

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.

Yaaaayyyyyyyy that is all I have to say Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Sam is his first cousin so no thank you.

great idea….sam and nick…yea!!

please let the love afair be with Elizabeth there great together and i think she shold have a baby along with carly and aj

This is great news. He’s SO Hot!!

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.

ilove nikolous

I hope Elizabeth and Nicolas get back together! Bring Robin back! And get rid of Franco! I want Julie Bermain back also as LuLu!!

Yes!! Now bring back Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans as Stepan Cassadine and Katherine Bell!!!!

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

Was wishing his return would be temporary, but we cannot all get what we want now, can we?

So happy he is back. He is my favorite hunk.Love his acting also. I thought about the Carly thing, too.

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!

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?

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…..

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.

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.

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 🙁

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.

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!

Totally agree! GH is a mess!

Gosh almighty Nancy you mean there are other people out there that think like me. Thank you!

I’m sooooooo happy Nicolas is going to stay!!! Love him! Finally one of our own GH
heartthribs will be on regularly. GH needs him!! Now bring back Jason & Lucky!! Then
GH would be fantastic again!!! Wish Emily was still alive held captive for Nicholas to find!

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: ‘Sprina’ in New York Part One

Thursday’s episode of General Hospital kicked-off with Trina (Tabyana Ali) and Spencer’s (Nicholas Chavez) adventures in New York City, where finally the fan favorite couple are getting some much needed, and waaaayyyyy overdue, alone time.

In story, Sprina arrive to their hotel room which has, thank God, one bed! Spencer heads out to get some theater tickets, leaving Trina enough time to video call her bff, Josslyn (Eden McCoy), and fill her in on how her first time alone with Spencer is going.

Trina, now in her nightgown, awaits Spencer’s return. When he does, Spencer tells Trina that everything is running on schedule. He won’t divulge what he has planned, but he has a surprise for her.  When Spencer asks what Trina wants to see on their trip, she lists all the museums she wants to go to.

After a knock on the door, champagne arrive. Getting flirty and romantic with one another, Spencer calls for a toast to the woman he loves, and Trina toasts to the both of them together.

Spencer realizes he needs to take a quick shower and heads to the bathroom, so they won’t be late for their dinner.  Later, we see Spencer in his fine blue suit while Trina is a vision in her fuscia-colored dress.

Overcome, Spencer tells Trina just how beautiful she is, and gifts her with a necklace so she remembers this weekend between them forever.  After they kiss again, it’s time for them to head out to dinner.  That’s the end of part one of Sprina’s trip to the Big Apple.

So, what did you think about the highly-anticipated Spencer and Trina scenes in New York City thus far? Were you all smiles? Are you looking forward to Friday, where many are hoping it’s the episode in which the lovebirds finally hit the sheets? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
