Tonight soap fans caught Jack Wagner on an episode of the hit ABC primetime series Castle guest-starring along with General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn!

However, the big question on GH fans minds is whether or not Wagner will finally reprise his role of Frisco Jones?   Rumors began swirling of an imminent return to Port Charles after Jack left The Bold and the Beautiful and his ex-wife Kristina Wagner reprised her role of Felicia Jones Scorpio on the ABC soap.

In an interview with Huffington Post out today, Wagner responded candidly to reporter, Jaimie Etkin when she asked the question if he would return to GH?  Jack then stated,  “That 50th anniversary I think is coming up, right? But I have nothing to say about it. They have called, but there’s nothing in ink or anything like that. I know it would be pretty special to work with Kristina, my ex-wife again so we’ll see what happens. I know it’s around the corner here and if I go back, it would only be for a very short story arc. But I might do it just to honor that show and what it’s meant to my career and the fans and to Kristina’s career.”

So what do you think soapers? Sounds like Jack would be willing to create some Frisco/Felicia magic in time for GH’s landmark anniversary!  Would you like to see Jack return to Port Charles for a short visit? Let us know!

If the story line works…I’d be happy to see Frisco again. If only to have Maxie give him whats what!

Michael, I love how you say “create some Frisco and Felicia magic”. That is exactly what they will do if/when Jack comes back. I hope that very soon something is signed and he will come back, though hope it’s for longer than a “short story arc”. Frisco and Felicia are an epic couple and I can’t wait to see them light up my screen again!

This would be the best news ever. I have been a Frisco and Felicia fan since the 80’s. I hope GH can write a story where they are respectful of Jack and Kristina’s current relationship off screen. I don’t think fans understand that Frisco and Felicia are fictional, but Jack and Kristina are not. They both have history. With that said, bring it on.

Salimah

You say this as though you know exactly what their offscreen relationship is. For the record, Jack consistently describes them as close, on great terms, friends, etc. He also consistenly indicates how much he’d love to work with her again. Most Frisco and Felicia fans I know are quite aware of the distinction between these couples, and since Frisco and Felicia are characters and Jack and Kristina are *actors*, I’d expect them to be able to rise to the challenge of a story that makes sense for those characters, which would necessarily be fraught with all of the passion, angst, and deep love that has always been there. Else, why do it?

I am so tired of people immediately assuming what can or cannot happen because these actors were together in realy life for nearly 20 years (married for 13) and have two children. I think F&F fans are taking their cues from what one half of this couple communicates about *his* excitement to work with the other half of his most epic onscreen pairing again.

Seriously? You have misinterpreted my comment. There are some fans that can not distinguish between the two relationships and will not except anything but the 2 of them together. I am not interested in a debate about Jack and Kristina. I don’t know them. I am not interested in a debate about the characters of Frisco and Felicia. They are fictional. What I am interested in, is a story that will excite the fans and remain true to the characters. A short term stint is not going to satisfy diehards.

Jack said himself in the article above ” It would be pretty special to work with Kristina” so obviously there will be no problem with them working together

Jack’s return is practically a mandate. At this point, Frisco is coveted so I’m happy to see it under almost any circumstances, but I don’t know that a “short arc” can accomplish all the character’s return needs to. The story potential is abundant and the character exploration and evolution would pay off in huge emotional and career dividends for both Jack and F&F fans who deserve a lot after the amount of time we’ve had to wait. We’ve gotten short shrift long enough.

If the story is there, even for a short time it would be GREAT! Having the amazing rich pot of characters to go back into is a wonderful gift for #Cartini to give to the fans and I hope they continue to do so.

I would love it if he came back but less for Felicia and more for Maxie. Love to see him explain how he was never in Georgie’s life and missed her funeral. Frisco and Felicia can reflect on their failures as parents. Would also love to see him mixed up in a new adventure with Luke, Anna, Duke, Robert etc. Perhaps finally reuniting Robin with Patrick and them taking Emma and moving out of town. Frisco can wish Maxie well and then go back to the WSB.

How cool would it be if Frisco came back and sang a song at Lulu’s club? It may not be “Duke’s Place” or “Delafield’s” but it would be cool nonetheless!

Frisco needs to come back within a story arc that does justice to years of injustice done to the iconic love of Frisco & Felicia. Jack and Kristina Wagner together were magic and are forever sealed within the annals of GH’s storied 50 year history. Reintroducing legacy characters worked well for the ratings in 2012-this couple represented the 80’s-how could they not entice viewers to tune in looking to recapture the memories?

Salimah

Lisa, perfectly stated. Flawless.

I would love to see Frisco back! But I agree with some of the others in that we need him back for more than a short story arc. I have been a Frisco and Felicia fan since the beginning along with many others! We deserve a lot more than Frisco coming to town wishing Maxie well and then leaving again. The potential is there for so much more and we definitely deserve more. We have waited way long enough.

A Jack return would be long awaited and extremely welcomed by all who experienced the “Frisco & Felicia Magic” of the 80’s and 90’s. Frisco & Felicia were a major part of GH in it’s heyday. There is so much story to be told with a Frisco return and my only hope is that it would be for longer than that of a “short arc”.

I think that it would be cool to bring back frisco, but make it so he is explaning why he stayed away solong and why he was not there for toney and geogies funerals, but make it so there some closure for the charcters. I think jack and kristina can work togther and still be friends, because jack is dating Ashley Jones and i think they can be perfesional.

Cindy

What in the world does Jack’s current dating life have to do with this?

Cindy, what a great question.

Christy

be interesting to see Frisco again, but not with Felicia. I like Felicia with Mac, and Felicia had to make up for not being around, but Frisco was worse. Would have been logical for him to have shown up during that Faison deal. Be kind of odd for him to just show up for the heck of it… maybe later if Maxie gives birth? have to wait and see I guess.

I would absolutely love a Frisco return! It would be wonderful to see the love of Frisco & Felicia given the justice it deserves. To repair the damage done by writers who did not honor the characters would be phenomenal. Neither would have deserted their family. It’s too bad a more creative way couldn’t have been found to explain their absences, especially Felicia who was a very devoted mother until TPTB decided they couldn’t use her any more. Mac always knew Frisco & Felicia were soulmates. He deserves better than being written as the “guy who’s always there” and long-time fans deserve to have this couple reunited. GH received some of the highest ratings in recent history with the return of epic characters from the 80s. Perhaps the “younger viewers” need not always be the target audience.

love this!

I agree with many here. A story arc that honors the characters’ relationship is needed and wanted. The fans of both Frisco and Felicia deserve no less than to have the damage that previous writers forced on both characters due to writing or the actors needing to leave. I am one older viewer who will tune in avidly to see Frisco come home….

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
