HomeTagsComings & GoingsCrime Fighter: Rebeka Montoya Joins General Hospital Luke Kerr August 23, 2011 Comings & Goings, General Hospital 27 Comments It looks like one of soap’s most incompetent police departments is about to get a little backup. According to Soap Opera Network, General Hospital has cast Rebeka Montoya as Delores Padilla; a recurring character who “will be working heavily with PCPD’s finest in solving the crimes of Port Charles.” I’m not sure how another body is going to help solve Port Charles’ crime infestation–when Mac (John J. York), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) and countless detectives, officers and DA’s before them have pretty much failed–but it can’t hurt can it? Reportedly, Montoya's first episode airs September 27. 27 Responses soapfan616 August 23, 2011 I so hope she can be a kick ass female character this show desperately needs. And it wouldn’t hurt if anyone at the PCPD had an IQ higher than a box of hair.

Log in to Reply Luke Kerr August 23, 2011 @podcastjunkie LOL that was the first thing I thought. We should really start a pool to see how long it will take Sonny to get her on his couch. LOL Log in to Reply mipeony August 23, 2011 OOh… maybe Johnny will finally get a love interest? Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 23, 2011 If she f***s greasy ass Sonny, I will stop watching. But yeah, she probably will. And get pregnant. Can somebody save this show? Log in to Reply kerimack August 23, 2011 Sadly she has ‘Sonny bait’ writen all over her Log in to Reply angrierblackerman August 23, 2011 The latest Brenda-Bot…the B1000? Log in to Reply jphelps August 23, 2011 I thought they were going back to writing for core characters and families. First her, then a recast Kate, and then a new mob family. Log in to Reply emsnana August 23, 2011 I wont mind her if they have her be an HONEST cop and keep her from sleeping with the mob. That is when I started hating Claire when they cheapened her by having her have the hots for Sonny Log in to Reply Angie Lucy August 23, 2011 Why can’t she be a recast Emily? She looks like a good combo of Amber Tamblyn and Natalia Livingston. Log in to Reply aramis270 August 24, 2011 She seems pretty… Perhaps she can be the one who will turn Johnny out of the mob to be a successful piano player? Honestly don’t see how difficult it will be for her to prime “PCPD’s finest” as the “finest” combined seem to have the IQ of my dog and the lethargy of my potato couch Uncle… Time out for the rotten cops Dante and Ronnie and druggie Lucky… As much as I don’t want any newbie on and I am not interested in the Soleitos, I will welcome a strong honest female officer as long as she doesn’t fall in Sonny’s bed… Log in to Reply GHFan777 August 24, 2011 Who knows she may actually be for Jason. Forget Sonny …they brought in NuKate, for him anyway. How many women does he need. Maybe sparks will fly with Jason instead. Log in to Reply liason4real August 24, 2011 Six months from now she will be throwing it in Liz’s face that she killed Jake and is using her son’s death to get back together with Lucky. Her next act will be to stalk Liz all over town and then act all BSC before falling down the stairs at the docks while arguing with Liz who is holding onto a bag with Lucky’s shoes and cell phone. :Sp Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 24, 2011 Why do they need ANOTHER new character? If they want to show more of the police department, most of us would rather see more of Mac, as opposed to this new chick, who is certainly lovely, but seemingly unnecessary. I hope she can at least act…………. Log in to Reply tealita August 24, 2011 No, six months from now she’ll be ordering Dante (who I feel would respond well to being subordinated) to get her coffee, take her uniforms to the dry cleaners, spit shine her shoes, keep her desk in order, and get her lunch. He’ll be only too happy to cut the crust off her sandwhiches, after she yells at him for gettintg her order mixed up. She’ll threaten to have him fired everytime he looks cross-eyed, AND she’ll openly flirt with Lulu every chance she gets! *sigh* Nice dream, aint it? Log in to Reply cokeyloveshersoaps August 24, 2011 Y do they need a new cop when Jason solves all the crimes in Port Charles with the help of Luckless and Dante. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 24, 2011 With a quick glance, I had the thought that she resembles Andrea Bogart, who plays Abby. Gee whiz…first a new Kate(which I’m not thrilled about and very wary of) and even though I knew they had the casting call out for this character, I’m thinking, “Why? With budgets as tight as they are (supposedly), who’s leaving that they can afford another new cast member?” I guess it’s wait and see… 0:) Log in to Reply GHvetfan August 24, 2011 What accent will she have? Swedish? Appalachian? Na’vi? Seriously, I would like the PCPD to just buy a clue. If this chick ends up flirting it up with Lucky or Johnny, OK. If she ends up with Sonny, I am out. Log in to Reply pumpkin August 24, 2011 gh just doesn’t learn. I read the posts and why do the fans know what is wrong with this show but they still do it over and over. They will keep bringing all the same types on. I think the show is too far gone. I just cannot comment further. Log in to Reply keanna August 24, 2011 She’s pretty, but you guys are right, I thought Garin was bringing back core characters, not new ones. Maybe she’ll be a legit cop. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 24, 2011 I dont know why they didnt just make her serena baldwin esp. if she is for lucky? Arent there historical characters like that that could have been an option rather than making her someone random. Log in to Reply got2luvmel August 24, 2011 IDC if she’s on the canvas so long as she’s given to Lucky…anything to keep that whinny baby away from Liz. Maybe then TPTB will give her a love interest worth shipping. Hell, I’ll take Liz as a lesbian (bi-curious or whatever) over her being with Lucky again, hook her up with this chick. I’m still wishing on a never-gonna-happen star for a Liz/Sam pairing LOL Log in to Reply AlexB August 24, 2011 [quote=tealita]No, six months from now she’ll be ordering Dante (who I feel would respond well to being subordinated) to get her coffee, take her uniforms to the dry cleaners, spit shine her shoes, keep her desk in order, and get her lunch.

I would love it if she were an honest cop…MY STARS a woman at that. Please, jesus…JJ didn’t get me to come back…thought that he would. They’re doing a number on my girl Liz…per the usual. Yeah, Garin’s a the helm, but I still find myself watching some scenes online after reading Perkie’s recaps…so not how I wanted it to be, but there you have it. I would love for this chick to come to PC look Sonny in the eye and spit in it. (Does he really need another female to drive crazy?)Drive a dirt bike through both them dimples! (they’re a trap…don’t look at ‘em! don’t look at ‘em!) And be a cop, if that who her charater is, have her actual BE a cop…maybe the only one besides Mac who isn’t bending over for Sonny and Jason. I would love her to show the menz how it’s done (wishful thinking I know)….and if she makes Lulu’s head pop off her neck…all for it. Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 24, 2011 @ tealita–they need to hire you to write your scenario. I’d PAY to see those scenes! Log in to Reply tealita August 24, 2011 @soapfan–I had fun with that one! Hey Alex, check in more often, why don’t ya?!! Log in to Reply marknsprmo August 25, 2011 hey if she cleans up the lame PCPD send her to Salem to fix that God awful dept. We have the keystone cops Bo and Hope and suddenly stupid big bro Roman (who used to be a very smart clever international spy/agent/bad guy getter/ undercover agent) and the totally useless Abe running the department with mayor de jur ruining whatever progress one of them might make. Not to mention ANYONE can walk into the jail and commit a crime and NOONE ever notices. Oops I made this about Days of our lives lol. But I am sure the same thing applies to the duds at PCPD because they have the mob running around them too.
