Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Great news General Hospital fans!  Those who have been hoping that Wally Kurth will be making another return to the ABC soap opera as Ned Ashton will be getting their wish soon!

According to a tweet from Kurth himself today, “Well, I had nice day in Port Charles yesterday. Yes, Ned will be arriving in town soon.  Stay tuned.  Thanks for waiting!”

Wally is currently recurring on Days of our Lives in the role of Justin Kiriakis, and last made an appearance in Port Charles in January of 2013.   In addition, the fan favorite landed in the Supporting Actor Pre-Nomination field vying for this year’s Daytime Emmy!

Upon getting into the next round, Kurth also tweeted, “Very excited to be on the Pre-Nomination list for the Emmys this year. Looks to be a crowded field.”

So what do you think will bring Ned back to Port Charles? Are you happy to hear Wally will be making a visit? Let us know! And as soon as we know an update of his airdate, we will announce it.

Tracy may need Ned to help her solve Lukes strange behavior or to help fight Donna Mills character who is plotting a takeover of ELQ?

jimh, I trust you to give an honest answer. Knowing that I only watch DAYS and you watch DAYS and GH, which soap should have Wally full time if he wanted full time?

I see Justin as a viable character whom should be used more with Adrienne and Sonny and also Victor. I want Wally on DAYS full time!!!

How much is he wanted and needed on GH?

I actually dont mind him doing both shows like Eilen Davison does Days and Y&R but i do like him better as Justin on Days…however, both shows dont seem to have…imo…interesting long term plans for either of his characters to warrant him full time on either show at the moment!!!

LOVE him on GH as well as Days. I think I like him better on GH, though. He seems to have a stronger character / story line on GH. He does a GREAT JOB on both soaps but I would have to say I’d vote for him on GH. I don’t think Days is as riveting since Allison Sweeney and the actor who played EJ were written out of DAYS !! I switched back to DOOL after All My Children was replaced with The Chew. I NEVER EVER watch the CHEW…boycotting it still B/C they have a ton of cooking… Read more »

Looking forward to seeing Wally/Ned. Sometimes they make Ned too rough around the edges. I hope he is the nicer Ned. I hope whatever the mystery is with Luke will be over with by then, but i doubt it. Very mysterious. Maybe Ned will be there due to that. ?? Would love him to come back. There are too few Qs.

If he could only do one soap full time, which soap should he do; DAYS or GH?

I wouldve had him stay at Days and involved him with Hope instead of her with Aiden…wouldve loved seeing a jilted Adrienne starting to have mental issues and going after Hope!!!

Wally Kurth is a pleasure to watch on DOOL and a real breath of fresh air – and talent – on GH.

4everDAYS

If he had only one soap to pick full time, should he choose DAYS or GH?

boes

He should choose Days, without a doubt. It’s the far superior show.

He should choose the show that offers him a contract since those are a rarity these days.

Wally Kurth is a “dreamboat”

I love his looks… his dimples… his looks… his acting… his looks… his presence…

He deserves to be a finalist as an Emmy list nominee

He’s at his best on both shows… but.. DAYS is all the better for featuring… him… and it should be more frequent

I agree; he always has been, gets better with age! I welcome him back to Port Charles, always!

Ned is in town as Julian’s secret partner. The show is hiding who the partner is by making viewers assume it’s Ric. Ned is not only rich enough, but also he had history with Julia Barrett; that she would sell her company to him. Which we no the owner of Barrett is Julian’s backer and Ric has never had that type of money.

Helen Conboy

I do believe that Ned is Jillian’s backer. Now that would be a great storyline for GH. Ned was involved with Julia and has always hated Sonny! That would be so much fun and unexpected.

Janie

@Nick…..I don’t believe Ned is Fluke or Julian’s partner. I read a few weeks ago that the unidentified partner to Fluke is a woman. I believe that it is Julia Barrett. We know that Luke is still alive and locked up…they have shown that much. The only person Fluke could possibly be is his cousin Bill Eckert. He had a thing going with Julia Barrett during that time. Don’t recall how either of them felt about Sonny since this was decades ago, but its the only scenario that makes any sense to me. But with this head writer who the… Read more »

We do need more Q’s back in Port Charles, but not the same old, same old ones. Was never a Ned fan….. what about Celia and Jimmy Lee? And her hubby “Grant?” Whatever, hope Kurth’s return does not portend an AJ exit….love SK and very tired of his character being mistreated and tortured. The only way I could see him leaving is if he is later returning in the role of Jason, although to be honest AJ was always much more appealing to me than “Stonecold” ever was or could be…..Kanan’s stint on the show has been really squandered over… Read more »

I do agree with you about Sean Kanan-AJ. Sean is an amazing actor, and I’d like to see AJ really clean-up his act and finally become successful with a beautiful woman on his arm! Love when he barbs with Tracy!

Sean is wonderful addition to the show and I love his chemistry with Maura West.

Wish he’d be on Days again. I don’t know why Days made Aiden a lawyer when we already have Justin. Doesn’t bode well for airtime for Justin.

With Peter R.(Bo) obviously not returning and no recast as Bo, i wouldve liked to had seen a Hope and Justin pairing…they couldve become close if Bo had been killed off (off camera) and Justin was helping Hope with legal issues involving Bo’s estate or if Hope was divorcing Bo and Justin was handling that…he himself having marital issues with Adrienne at the time as well…i predicted an obvious Aiden and Hope pairing a long time ago and suggested ‘Days’ needs to bring in a new family(without diminishing the Horton and Bradys importance) to refreshen the show but i still… Read more »

I’m thrilled! I absolutely love Wally, on both DAYS and GH; but, my all-time favorite will always be him as Ned Ashton (AKA Eddie Maine) on GH! Bring it, Wally! Love the Q’s!

Janie

I totally agree. I would love to see Wally back on GH full time. He has so much history with the show it would be such a welcome relief from all these newbies that they have brought to the show. My top two picks would be to get rid of AVA and LEVI. When they are on its like nails on a blackboard to me. Can’t STAND either one of them.

DMR

I completely agree about Levi. Add Kiki to that list!
I completely agree 1,000x over about the recurring “newbies.”
With such a big cast, takes away from the core, historic characters.

As long as they have a story for him. I dont want Tracey to cry on his shoulder and then he is back in Salem the following week! Make him head of ELQ. Cast Dylan, sober up AJ. Tracy can referee the boys! Do you realize the only business that they show on a regular basis other than the hospital is Kellys. Make ELQ relevant again. See: Newman, Jabot, and Chancellor.

Ned and Alexis need to be back together romantically. Their couple name should be Nexis! Heard it here first.

I would love it if Ned is Julians secret partner. he could take down Sonny. he could find out Sonny shot his cousin, of course Ned is dumb enough to not care. lets face it , its just FranknRon’ s bait and switch. He will be here a week stretched into two months, and be gone.

I think Sean Kanan’s character of AJ is being written off. He is supposed to be returning to BB next month. Good to see Wally back in town.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.

Now let us know, are you glad that DAYS is honoring James with this special 40th anniversary episode? What has been your favorite James Reynolds performance as Abe through the years? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Photo: NBC

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
