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.

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
Guest

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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?

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… Read more »

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…

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.

David
Guest

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… Read more »

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
Guest

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
Guest

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

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

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!

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… Read more »

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

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
Guest

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!

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.

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!

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!

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… Read more »

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

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

On Friday, ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital has now determined to push back their production restart date given the escalating number of cases of the coronavirus as the pandemic has worsened in Los Angles County.

According to Deadline: “GH is now targeting the week of July 20 to resume taping. The situation remains fluid as new infections have been soaring in Los Angeles.”

General Hospital was previously eyeing a return to production this coming Monday on July 13th, before the COVID-19 outbreak saw a spike in numbers.

While GH is pushing itself back another week, The Young and the Restless is at this moment preparing to start taping new episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 14th.

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

So, glad that GH is holding off a little bit longer to ensure safety first for all involved from cast, and crew? Comment below.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
