Will Jonathan Jackson, Nathan Parsons & Other Notables Return To GH For Tony Geary's Final Farewell As Luke Spencer?

It would seem that General Hospital has been crafting and taping the final ten weeks of story that viewers will see on upcoming episodes of the long running ABC soap opera to usher out the one and only soap opera icon, Anthony Geary.  The legend is now set to finish up his fantastic 37-year-run playing Lucas Lorenzo Spencer.

With Geary recently revealing his imminent departure, and Genie Francis already back on board as Laura Spencer, it would seem natural for Luke’s son, the beloved Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) and the wayward Ethan (Nathan Parsons) to come back  and have some final scenes with their on-screen dad.

While Luke’s final storyline has been under wraps,  GH head writer  Ron Carlivati recently alluded to Soap Opera Digest that he was looking for a way to incorporate adventure into Geary’s final GH story.

Since action-adventure has been a staple of Luke’s storylines of the past that would make sense. In addition, Daytime Confidential is reporting today that they are hearing rumblings about Jackson and Parson’s return, plus an additional former leading lady other than Francis and Jane Elliot (Tracy).

So this begs the question: Who do you want to see be part of Luke Spencer’s and Tony Geary’s final storyline this summer? Share your thoughts below!

I find your dip wits comment uncalled for. These comments were posted before the news was released on June 1st that she was returning.

I first watched GH when Luke met Holly on top of the mountain. I would love to see Holly again for a few episodes. Will really miss Anthony Geary.

Michele

Robert, Holly, and Helena with that DNA test proving that Ethan is Robert’s and NOT Luke’s.

Also, Connie Townley, Luke’s 1983 WSB-agent-lover.

I hope its Lucky, Robert, Holly, Sean and Tiffany.

I dont want to see Ethan. I didnt like the character, the actor or the story in which he was eventually connected to Luke.

I loved Ethsn…exuded the cool/edgy vibe…not to mention he’s gorgeous, his accent and charm. Would love to see robert…just want him back full time!…Sean and Tiffany. But as you probably know she was very ill…not quite sure what her status is now.

Tristen is under contract to Y and R as Colin. Dont see how he could appear as Robert.

Harry
Harry

Rebecca, I love Ethan too. Eileen, Tristan is nowhere to be seen on Y&R and if Eileen Davidson can jump from Days to Y&R in front burner stories, why can’t Tristan make a couple of cameos?
That’s not a rhetorical question, I earnestly want an answer.

davidevansmith
davidevansmith

The difference is that Y&R and DAYS both are owned (? or produced, or invested in) by SONY, so they can have a say in creative decisions that would be profitable to both soaps. Y&R and GH have no such ties, and are more clear-cut competitors, where there is no legitimate reason for either soap to concede favors to the other for the sake of the story or the fans. In fact those two soaps have been stealing actors from each other for years.

However, I don’t see Y&R investing in Tristan Rogers anymore, he hasn’t really been seen since Pratt’s plane crash debut storyline, so I can’t imagine there are big plans for Colin. I personally don’t think they’ll keep him on contract for too many more cycles, so maybe he could return to GH more permanently for Anna once Finola returns from her hiatus.

Tiffany has an illness and said she can never go back to GH because she is not well

Please bring back Jonathan Jackson and Emma Samms, that would be terrific.

Jonathan Jackson is coming back so is Ethan – Emma was announced last week as a yes. I want Robert Scorpio back that would be an ideal thing to do

Can Ethan please be revealed as Robert Scorpio’s son instead of Luke’s? Please?

Jeremy

Very cool, if it can happen, especially for it be worked out with Jonathan Jackson, and his Nashville schedule, etc. I love Nathan Parsons, too. Other leading lady? Emma Samms? and, could they briefly pop Julie Marie Berman into the mix, somehow, a flashback scene or something with Genie, Anthony, Jonathan, and Julie?

Laura G

Holly and Scorpio!

I would love to see the return of Lucky and Ethan (as brilliantly played by Jonathan Jackson and Nathan Parsons) to help wrap up Luke’s (Tony Geary’s) storyline. That would be a wonderful personal touch. JJ spent many years with Tony Geary and Genie Francis, so that would be fitting, and I so enjoyed the relationship between Luke and Ethan. As for the other leading lady that could be brought back, I am so hoping that it is “NOT” Helena Cassadine, as I am so over her. I think his romantic relationships with Laura and Tracy are the most heartfelt and genuine, and are the ones that deserve the fanfare at the end of this long, wonderful ride we were fortunate enough to share with Luke/Tony Geary!

Mrs B

Just PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT kill Luke off. We have to see him again.

I don’t want Tony to leave!
However, the final scenes will be the best they can be..
I have no doubt that RC and all the staff of GH are doing their very best to give Tony/Luke his due with a great exit..
(All are working hard on the farewell..

(I’m sure Tony will some input also…

Jake from NJ

Maybe Skye….Holly?

Holly is the other woman……so who does Helene get to terrorize once Luke isgone……also, there is rumor Liz leaves with Lucky because RHdoesnt lik workin with Billy Miller—is this true?

Jenny Brooks

Don’t be sorry! Hope you feel better soon! I would hope that if Helena is involved at all, that they use it as a chance to end the ridiculous Lulu/Stavros embryo in a thermos story!
As to Liz, would someone actually quit their job just because they don’t like a co-worker? Not many of us have that option, so I would doubt it.

I love gh

Where did U here this juicy little tidbit on RH???
Wonder if it’s true???

David
David

Not true at all apparently there were Some nasty rumors, that not only involved the characters of General Hospital, but the actors who play those parts hit social media after a certain gossip website posted that Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) and Billy Miller (Jake Doe/Jason Morgan) strongly disliked one another on the set of GH, and that Herbst was on her way out because of Billy Miller. These rumors are completely UNTRUE. There is absolutely no animosity between Becky and Bill, and Becky herself said she is staying with GH. So hopefully we can put crap like this aside this why i hate the internet rumors start taking on a life of their own

Fanny
Fanny

Thanks for the update.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I kind of thought it was stupid gossip….i knd of stumbled upon it on the internet……i believe if it were true ew here it here!

Harry
Harry

David, where do this insane rumors come from?
In interviews Billy Miller has positively waxed poetic about Rebecca’s beauty and talent.
I think these mean spirited rumors came from a rabid pack of JaSam fans who harbor a puzzling hatred toward Lizzy, a fictional character.
That is my theory anyway.

If Ethan returns, I wouldn’t be surprised if his mum, Holly Sutton Scorpio, also makes an appearance. It would also be nice for her ex & Luke’s BFF, Robert, to make an appearance. But, I don’t know what Tristan Rogers’ status is over at CBS.

David
David

I am guessing the other leading lady would be Emma Samms. I wish Tristain Rogers was available as he should really be a part of Luke’s departure but alas not meant to be. Really looking forward to seeing how they send him off.

Jimmy

I hope they can both return, especially Lucky. I’ve wanted JJ to come back to GH for so long now, and with Laura coming back, it makes sense that Lucky comes back too.

As for the other former leading lady, I think this one is obvious: Emma Samms. She’s been back to GH a few times in the last few years, so it would make sense.

Taylor
Taylor

Will we see Emma Samms’ Holly Sutton return to Port Charles? Please let that be the case.

Allen saint james

Action adventure is the only way to end Luke’s story on gh! Luke Laura Lucky Ethan and Holly and wish fully Robert Scorpio should be a big part of his exit. Perhaps Luke will be presumed Dead. LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN. YAY!

Joanne
Joanne

All I can say is yes,yes, yes to Jonathan and Nathan returning for a few episodes to help usher Luke out.

Dan

Would love to see Jonathan Jackson back as Lucky, so he, Tony and Genie can share the screen together one last time. Hopefully they’re able to make that happen. The adventures of Luke and Laura and Lucky were such a big part of what drew me to GH when I first started watching the show in 1993, so I would really enjoy that. Jonathan literally grew up on the show, and in interviews even today always gives Tony Geary a lot of credit for him becoming the accomplished actor he became. I’m sure he’ll want to come back and say goodbye.

I personally never cared for the character of Ethan, rewriting history and making him Luke and Holly’s son was one of the many stupid Guza storyline mis-steps. But it would be cool to see Emma Samms again, who is I assume the other leading lady from Luke’s past referred to here.

It’s a shame Tristan Rogers won’t be able to be there, to give Luke and Scorpio a proper conclusion, especially since he’s not really doing much of anything at all on Y&R these days, from what I understand from my friends that watch the show. If they’re not gonna use him, they should cut him free, so he can return home to Port Charles where he belongs.

Kelly

I agree, They should let Tristan come back! It would be one heck of a send off if Tristan, Sean Donley, Sharon Wyatt, and even Jack Wagner come back to the show. That would be so awesome!

Aria
Aria

I hope he gets to say goodbye to finola hughes, I’m sure the other leading lady is Emma samms, Tito bad he won’t get to share the screen one last time with Tristan Rogers Scorpio. I can’t wait to see how they do it, I hope they give us a happy ending and no cliffhanger, because once Geary is out the door who knows if he’ll ever make an appearance on GH agian.

Kelly
Kelly

I would have to say Emma Samms that played Holly. And please bring back Tristan Rogers, John Reilly(who played Sean)and Sharon Wyatt. I know Tristan is on Y&R, but they should allow him to come back for that farewell.

Would love to see all of them as well! I mean, Robert and Luke were BFFs in the 80’s. Sonny and Luke were the BFFs of the 90’s. I would love to see the incorporate all of his children, his sister, and his women(Laura, Tracy and Holly) and his 2 BFFs! Plus, if possible, Sean and Tiffany! But that’s a stretch to get all of them! Luke Spencer deserves to out with a bang!

Mrs B

Yes to all the above.

Vicki

I have also heard ABC will have JJ return to help usher AG out. It will be nice to see The Spencer’s reunite. As far as Ethan goes, hope Luke doesn’t turn out to be his daddy. Emma coming back would answer those questions possibly. I hope they allow The Spencer’s to leave town like they came back in 1993-With a mystery but with some Spencer type style.

Timmm

This is why its so great to be a fan of GH. This summer is going to be awesome. We have no idea how Luke will leave and thats exciting in this day and age of spoilers through social media. He is at peace with leaving and has a great deal of respect for his chacter and his first love. Whatever he chooses to do will be okay by me. Love you Tony!

It would be nice to see Tiffany, Sean, Robert, Holly, and Ethan but mostly I would like to see Lucky come back and entice Elizabeth to ride off into the sunset with him.

Eileen Hargis

Harry, Tristan might not be seen but he is under contract. When Eileen and Wally Kurth both bounced between Days and GH, they werent under contract and could do both shows. Wally signed a contract for Days and had to exit GH.

Love to see The one and only Lucky, JJ return. Ethan I liked ,the actor can act. Emma Sands and Sean . Tiff had a lot of medical problems so maybe not. The best thing is, whomever returns to escort Luke off won’t be staying long so TIIC won’t be able to destroy the characters. I just hope they don’t ruin the Laura return.

I loved the friendship between Luke & Robert from the beginning. I want Robert to be a part of Luke’s storyline–one that doesn’t end and allows for Anthony Geary to return as Luke from time to time! I would also like to see Luke’s other best friend, Roy DiLucca return if A Martinez is available. They also have great chemistry as friends and we’ve never had a Luke, Robert and Roy scene together. That would be awesome! Perhaps best friends Robert & Roy could help send Luke off somewhere and then share some scenes of their own together!

Christi

Would love for JJ to return with Laura! Emma too! Just don’t know how they’d have Lucky return after he abandoned his sons. I hated that story and what Elizabeth and Nikolas did but NEVER saw Lucky as repeating his fathers mistakes. Was such a huge fan of GH in the 90’s and Luke & Laura as well as the Four Muskeeters ( Nik, Lucky, Elizabeth, Emily) were a big part of that. Would be grateful to RC if he fixed what Guza broke.

With that said I will miss Anthony Geary as Luke Spencer. I hope he makes guest returns!

So awesome to see Genie and Tony back on screen again…but sad that Tony is leaving…Although I’m glad they will not kill of his character & to leave an open door for him to return later on…I wish Tony the best of health and glad he’s putting that first…Very excited to see Jackson and Parson returning as well…I hope some more veterans return this summer for Tony’s farewell…

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

CourtesyABC

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Courtesy/ABC

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?

So, were you upset that Alexis drank? Do you like Britt and Julian hooking-up? Will Carly get Nelle to sign the consent forms  for Wiley’s surgery? And, are you intrigued by a redux of a Liz and Nikolas romance? Comment below.
