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?

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

You haven’t done anything you need to apologize for….
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

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.

I would really love to see Jonathan Jackson return. Also Nathan Parson, Tristan Rogers and Robin Christopher.

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!

Desiree Aiello

They both should come back for Tonys bon voyage. I will always b a loyal fan.

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.

OH, that Nathan Parsons is a doll! Please, bring him back!!

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…

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Three: Trouble Looms For Ava, Cameron’s Heartfelt Song, A Liesl & Franco Duet

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the third installment of the Nurses’ Ball 2019 and this time there were several musical numbers to discuss, as well as story points moving forward.

Obrecht was back and in her full glory and that meant great news to GH fans to see Kathleen Gati appear on the Nurses’ Ball stage again.  However, Dr. O brought with her a friend, none other than Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who joined Frau Liesl in a rendition of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet “Guilty”.   The combo, obviously a play on how they do bad things to others (or have), and they have nothing to feel guilty about!  Then, there was that drop the mic moment, literally!

Cameron (William Lipton) has shown up at the Corinthos’ home to give Josslyn (Eden McCoy) a video message from Oscar (Garren Stitt) that he was holding on to per Oscar’s dying request to give to Joss.  Before he leaves, she asks Cameron to stay and watch it with her, but he tells her she should do this alone.  Later, Josslyn watches the video on her laptop.  Contained in the video is Oscar saying how grateful he was for their time together and that he hopes she will lives life to the fullest, starting with singing their song at the Nurses’ Ball.   Next, Josslyn comes down the stairs of the house in her gown ready to honor Oscar and she heads out to the ball.

Courtesy/ABC

When Joss arrives, Cameron is now taking the stage.  William Lipton performs a song he wrote called “North Star” against the backdrop of emotional images of the friendship between Cameron, Josslyn, and the late Oscar.  (You can watch it below.  It was one of the highlights of the ball thus far)

Lipton took to his Twitter account after the outpouring of kudos and support after his performance aired expressing: “Thank you so much for all your kind words for the song Cam was singing at The spotlight should be at the GH writers who inspired me to write this song. Their words in the script were so beautiful.”

Ava Jerome also took to the stage as the marvelous Maura West performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” as only Ava J. would do! A sultry chanteuse is this Port Charles bad girl, whose night may go from a cool performance to a nightmare now that a gloved figure has knocked out Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), which only leads to one conclusion .. serial killer Ryan is back.  Will Ava get her vengeance and kill the guy, or will someone else?

Courtesy/ABC

Elsewhere in story, Finn (Michael Easton) proposed to Anna (Finola Hughes) on-stage at the ball, and though it was a typical bumbling clumsy moment from Finn, it was all the same endearing, especially when Anna says “yes” to his proposal.  Later, the two spend some alone time where Finn explains why he chose the ring he did; harkening back to when she was blackmailing him in Europe (It was a Monaco blue sapphire he chose, and Monaco was the place where they started their unlikely pairing).

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) tries to warn Sam (Kelly Monaco) about Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but her parents Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) come to her aid, and then Sonny once again threatens Shiloh.  Later, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) gets a call from Diane Miller that Nina (Michelle Stafford) overhears.  On the call, Willow mentions her baby’s father is in Port Charles.  Nina learns Willow had a baby, and Shiloh looks at Willow.

Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) are rescued in Canada, and Laura calls Kevin’s cellphone but it goes to voice message to warn him about Ryan heading to Port Charles.   Meanwhile, Curtis calls Chase (Josh Swickard) and tells him that Ryan Chamberlain is alive. and on his way to most probably the Nurses’ Ball.

So, what musical number did you enjoy the most on Tuesday’s Nurses’ Ball?  What did you think of Anna and Finn getting engaged?  Shiloh overhearing the news about Willow?  Josslyn receiving the video message from Oscar to perform at the ball? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Two: Cameron and the Llama, Anna’s Speech, Chase Dazzles

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, it was day two of the annual Nurses’ Ball, and things kicked-off with the opening number by the GH nursing staff, (except Elizabeth) performing the classic hit “Best of My Love” by the Emotions.   After the number, the drama started to unfold as the GH Nurses’ Ball always intersects storylines with the event.

Scott’s (Kin Shriner) plan goes awry when he opens Lucy’s (Lynn Herring) hotel room door hoping to find her making out with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), but only Kevin is there, as Ava (Maura West) figures out what Scott has been up to.  Kevin and Ava are continuing their ruse to try to lure Ryan out of hiding, but seem to be enjoying each others company more than they admit.

When Mike (Max Gail)  and Yvonne (Janet Hubert) arrive. they show off the engagement ring that Mike gave to Yvonne, which Finn (Michael Easton) sees and realizes that is his engagement ring to Anna (Finola Hughes) that he has been looking for.  Finn talks to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and they come up with an emergency plan to get the ring back, which goes off without hitch by Finn giving Mike the fake one Robert (Tristan Rogers) had.

Courtesy/ABC

Watching the ball at home, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) is with Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth), and Kris flips out when she sees Sam (Kelly Monaco) with Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) at the festivities.  Meanwhile, Peter (Wes Ramsey) lowers the boom on Shiloh telling him that Molly (Haley Pullos) will be doing an expose on “Dawn of Day”.  At the same time Jason (Steve Burton) and Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) hatch their own plot to nab Shiloh, and are setting up surveillance cameras at DOD.

Backstage, Cameron (William Lipton), who is ready to perform solo finds Lucy’s llama. and in the most touching moment of the episode has a heart-to-heart with the animal about losing Oscar.  William Lipton throughout the episode was terrific.

Now we come to Anna and Robert.  Anna wants to set her ex straight by telling him that she will always love him, but she wants to marry Finn, and she doesn’t know what he is up to … but to stop it – since it appears Robert is trying to be the interloper in Anna’s romance with Finn.  Later, Finn tells Robert he has his ring back and will propose to Anna

Courtesy/ABC

Next, after a rousing intro by Lucy, Chase (Josh Swickard) performs “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay and brings the house down and brings his gal, Willow (Katelyn MacMullan) to the stage with him to dance and finish the musical number.

As the episode comes to its conclusion, three plot points emerge:  Kristina shows up at the ball ready to confront Shiloh, as Sam looks horrified.

Cameron shows up to the Corinthos’ home to talk to Josslyn and convince her to come to the ball with him and perform, because the song is a duet, and he says to her that he has a message from Oscar to give her.

Lastly, Robin could not make it to the Nurses’ Ball this year. The annual moving speech falls to her mother, Anna to deliver about surviving and living with HIV (touchingly delivered by Finola Hughes).  Robert says he will join her on stage, because Robin is his daughter too.  From the sidelines, Robert and Finn start to watch Anna’s emotional speech,  Robert finally tells Finn he better make Anna happy. but knocks him in the arm in the process.  Finn drops the engagement ring and it ends up at Anna’s feet onstage.  She looks to the sidelines and sees both men.  Can she figure out who just proposed?

So, what was your favorite moment from the second installment of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019? Comment below.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Photo: ABC

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Photo: ABC

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Photo: ABC

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

Photo: ABC

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below
