Two major fan favorites are on their way back for visits on General Hospital.  Recurring stars Wally Kurth (Ned) and Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) are back this fall on the ABC soap opera.

Anderson will appear on the Friday, September 2nd episode, but it’s unclear if it will be for a story arc, or not.

Kurth, who also plays Justin Kiriakis on Days of our Lives, reveals he will be back next month as well in Port Charles.

Wally told SOD: “I’m excited that I get to do both shows. I love being able to do both characters, Ned and Justin.”

So, what stories will Ned and Spinelli find themselves enmeshed in Port Charles? Share your theories in the comment section below!

Spin tells Maxi that Ellie left him just as Maxi and Nate split up over Claudette and she invites Spin and their baby to move in with her-Spin is unaware Ellie left him because she is dieing but Spin finds out and miracle Dr. Finn saves the Trout…Ned is there to help Tracy and Sab locate the latter’s missing baby…at the same time whatshisface found a baby for mommy-wanna-be Nina seemingly unaware its Sabs missing child-ok, made it up-lol

Love Wally Kurth and his Ned. I wish GH would write for him and keep him around. He’s a great actor and Ned and his alter ego, Eddie Maine, are always good.

Hopefully Spinelli will save our Maxie from this tragic story and by tragic, I mean sucky, stupid & boring! Please can Nathan, Claudette and that drip Griffin!

For sure, Please! He’s a smart guy, certainly he can think of something to get those three on the road out of town! I’d even welcome a time machine storyline to send them (permanently) back or forward in time. The gentleman that portrays Nathan has such weak acting skills that a dramatic storyline with him in the center of it was doomed from the start.

Lol! these pretty faces Griffin & Nathan are about as exciting as a piece of log. Poor Kirsten stuck in the middle. They need to cut their losses with this group and get Bradford Anderson back permanently!

I don’t know much about either character….well, just the basics.
But, doesn’t Spinelli’s appearance always relate to some kind of issue involving Maxie, Jason/Sam or Sonny?
Three choices: look into the Claudette/Nathan/Griffin triangle; best man for Jason?; or investigating Nelle—as per Sonny’s orders.
Ned? Visits his mother? Too obvious.

Cee, dont scratch your head too hard, Spinelli is a goof that should have come and gone like Natalie on Y&R and Ned is awesome but they roll him in and out like Scorpio and leave us wanting more. Its stunt casting, is all!

Hi, Timmmy,
Thanks for the heads up. I don’t mind seeing Spinelli….he’s nerdy, but strangely funny. I can tolerate him. Actually, I like him. And, I like him with Maxie. But, you know more than I….as far as stunt casting.
So, I will follow your lead and not belabor his ‘homecoming’.
Ned is just a pleasant character to me. Nothing less, nothing more.

Spinelli has been written less hyper, the character has calmed down.
I Like Spin, he is different, and that is a good thing..

A lot of us LOVE Spinelli CeeCee and he was a very central character for years. I think he came to Port Charles ten years ago. He was always a computer genius/nerd…and arrived as a quirky character who we were all kinda amused by but not invested in and then bam! Many of us fell in love with this kid in-his-own- world! He was dragged into doing work for a criminal Alcazar (a really popular character too…played by Ted King who also played Tomas (Tea’s husband on OLTL). Anyway, Spinelli eventually tried to get away from the danger but was… Read more »

As for Ned, I think everyone loves Ned. He started out as a gorgeous “ladies man”. I remember filling you in way back when we first got friendly…he used to be a tennis instructor. He and Monica,,,many, many years ago, met and had an affair. They didn’t know who the other was a Quartermaine at the time. That was a good story…sigh…how I miss those Quartermaine days.nthere were so many of them and it was a great soap family…always funny and scandalous. Ned returned to the Q’s and instead of following in his grandfather (the patriarch of the Q’s) footsteps… Read more »

Yes, Rebecca. Thank you. I just got around reading my mail; after a much needed breather…..Vineyard time. At least the island is quiet, now!!!! Well, except for our passel of kids….nephews, nieces….sometimes I lose count, LOL. I think I have a better understanding of Spinelli…. thank you. I can identify with this guy….in his nerdy-kind- of-way. I was alays called a book worm and too old for my age….so, I can relate. I wish he could stay on….we need that kind of distraction here and there. Too many mundane stories going around in circles. But, as I always say….I am… Read more »

Vineyard time sounds good…and passels of kids do too! In a world full of negativity…innocence is still the epitome of joy. “Spinelli” was on contract for a long time; he chose to leave so it’s great that he makes these sporadic appearances. As for Wally Kurth, I’m catching a few of the remaining soaps (usually when an actor I like from another show heads over to it, etc) so I’ve only seen Wally once or twice in his other role. Lol; too weird. We KNOW it’s the same actor yet while obvious, it’s still amazing how we, as viewers, can… Read more »

I still say Wally needs to be back full time as Ned. Always liked that character. Also would like to see Spinelli around all the time too. That character is always fun to watch.

Yea!! Hope Wally stays for awhile with a good story.

I wish they had a real story for Spinelli this time too. He could work for the police department instead for thugs, maybe that way they could actually solve a crime.

hey Timmm..
Wally doesn’t seem to want a contract with either soap
”’Wally told SOD: “I’m excited that I get to do both shows. I love being able to do both characters, Ned and Justin.””’

Norther did Tristan, not until Y&R/CBS gave him a sweet deal he couldn’t walk away from..

Sometime the Vets do not want to be back in under contract.. They like ‘appearances’ it works out better for them..

I can’t believe that–especially the desparity in money. I really believe that Tristan Rogers wanted a contract with GH years ago–just went o Y & R because they did give him one–at that time.

Me too!
There is no way to recast all the Q’s and have them accepted.
At the least, RC, gave us Dillion an active Q ..
And Ned shows up every blue moon..

GH’s Avery Pohl on Esme’s Return: “She’s Using Her Time Wisely and Waiting For The Right Moment to Strike”

Next week, Esme Prince (Avery Pohl) is back lurking around Port Charles.  When viewers last saw Esme, she went over the parapet at Wyndemere during a showdown with Ava (Maura West).

For months, GH fans have been eagerly awaiting to see just how and when Esme would return to get revenge, or find out what she is after.  From the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it looks like the wait is over.

In dishing with SOD on her on-screen return, Pohl shared that Esme is, “essentially on the run.”  However, she adds, “Esme is aware of the circumstances she’s put herself in.  She is aware that people are going to to be after her.  She’s not dumb.”

Just what’s in store for Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Ava, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) now that Esme is back?

As Esme’s plan begins to reveal itself, Pohl shares: “Before she goes right back into the thick of it, she scopes things out.  She’s using her time wisely and waiting for the right moment to strike.”

So, are you glad that finally Avery Pohl is back on GH as Esme? What do you hope happens next? Who do you think is Esme’s biological mother? Do you want her to get her comeuppance from the Cassadine clan and Trina? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Courtesy/ABC

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?
