ahhhaa!
Tony’s Back” and I believe a pic of a spine on tee’s ..
Tony’s back pun !!!

It’s going to be sooooo great to have the story continue!!

RC/team kept the story alive while Tony was recovering and not beating us with it..
just keepin it alive..
Luke/Fluke will bring many great performances!!,,, can hardly wait !!!
There are great actors in this one, too ..

GH is bursting with emmy performances and they keep coming!!!

Salute’ welcome home Anthony!! Real Luke!! Where is your Bro Mo?

What I hope to see at the “DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS” this YEARS, is for GH to receive
the respect and acknowledgement it so richly deserves.
I’d like EP Frank V. to take no prisoners and submit as many scenes and episodes possible,
Roger,Maura,Michelle,Laura,Kathleen……….to name a few. And that’s just for this weeks
performances!!! Ron C and his writing team, R giving ABC the BEST Nov SWEEPS in
years. Last time I checked, EXCELLENCE reaped rewards.

I like the pun…i suffer severe near crippling back pain so i understand how Tony felt…glad he is ok and back on the show…finally Fluke’s storyline!!!

That was nice of Frank/cast/crew

Royalty has returned! As if GH hasnt been good enough! Tony will be the icing on the cake! Please GH/ABC release these t-shirts to the general public for sale!

They should sell the shirts and copies of Carlys necklace and other soap related items…its a good way for networks to make some money off these shows!!!

Exactly. These soaps still get millions of viewers and some of us want to express our love for a semi-lost art! My favorite comments about soaps is when people say “Do you still watch those Things?” as they continue on a bout the Kardashians or Atlanta Housewives! Soaps are TEN times better than that crap!

I get your point, jimh, but WHO on earth would want a replica of that totally hideous necklace that Franco gifted Carly???? (And would the secret “Sonny Cam” be included???? Haha…just asking…..)

Welcome back, Tony. Let’s get this story wrapped up so we can see (real) Luke and Tracy reunite and have some laughter in the Quartermaine mansion with Alice and Ned!

I’d like to suggest a love interest for Fluke: The character must be named “Flora” and I have a particular actress (familiar to the GH audience) in mind to play her . . .

Laura(Genie Francis)…i just dont see her and Luke together anymore..it would be nice if Genie returned but it just didnt work the last time she was on…i dont think TG wants to revisit the storyline…been there, done that…he wants to move away from that and do stuff that challenges him like Fluke’s done…he also hinted about retiring…i wouldve liked to have seen Luke and Laura reunited one last time and involved in a big storyline with the Cassidines before departing PC for good!!!

Well, it didn’t work for Luke and Laura because the writing wasn’t there.
There’s no way that Fluke and Luke should be on the canvas without Luke’s angel.
And for the life of me, I will never understand how a smart and savvy woman like Traci didn’t notice that that man was not her husband.

So great to see how much Tony is loved and respected among his peers…lest we forget he has been through some serious health concerns with his back… and he is not 25 anymore…

SO happy to see him back!!

Happy to have Tony back. A “fluke” story without Tony isn’t much of a story. Also, I’d like to see a new love interest for him because Tracy & Luke, well ….. isn’t terribly interesting to me.

Aww, that was sweet. Now, let’s wrap-up the Fluke storyline!! Great to see TG back.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.
