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!

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,… Read more »

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?

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.

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… Read more »

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….

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Courtesy/ABC

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Charles Shaughnessy Takes Over the Role of GH’s Victor Cassadine

GH fans were in for a major surprise when on Thursday’s episode a kidnapped Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) got the shock of her life when her former lover, Victor Cassadine turned out to be alive and well and holding her hostage.

But there was another twist! DAYS favorite, Charles Shaughnessy (Shane), who previously was announced as coming to GH but in a mystery role, revealed himself to be … the new Victor Cassadine!  The former Mr. Sheffield of The Nanny has stepped into the role previously played by DAYS Thaao Penghlis (Tony).

Once the cat was out of the bag, in a tweet, Shaughnessy shared: “So excited to FINALLY be able to reveal details of my latest “gig”. 37 years on, I am back in the halls of @GeneralHospital, playing with the incredible @gatitweets. Having once been a vampire on @DisneyChannel, it’s not surprising I bring #VictorCassadine back from the dead!”

Shaughnessy is referring to the time he previously played Holly Sutton’s cousin, Alistair on the ABC daytime drama series back in 1984.

General Hospital viewers recall that Liesl shot and “killed” Victor back in 2014 then played by Penghlis.  In story, Victor believed he was the bio-dad of her son, Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). But a DNA test said that was not true, yet she shot him.  Leaving viewers wondering who is the dad? Hmmm.

So what did you think of the shocker? Shaughnessy as NuVictor Cassadine? Comment below.
