Should be interesting, can’t wait!!! Log in to Reply soapbaby January 12, 2012 I hope she drops by to reveal that Ethan is not the son of Luke but rather Robert. And, more importantly, to usher Ethan out of Port Charles. Log in to Reply mipeony January 12, 2012 I too hope Ethan will turn out to really be Robert’s son. I would love to see Robin gain a brother, and Luke lose a son.

I hope she is more like the Holly of the 80s. I can’t wait to see her, Robert and Anna mix it up. And Ethan better be a Scorpio!! Log in to Reply SavePortChuck January 12, 2012 Great news… but I’m still waiting for the headline “Stuart Damon returns to General Hospital!” I don’t care how Frank and Ron do it but just make Alan undead and get that Quartermaine family back on the air! Log in to Reply Frozeninthepast January 12, 2012 Fabulous news! Please let this be the Holly I remember, and not the very strange woman she became under Bob Guza’s pen. And please make Ethan a Scorpio. That is the way it should be! Log in to Reply Terry_Gyimah January 12, 2012 I hope this means Holly and Ethan will interact as mother and son, and they will actually have a relationship this time around Log in to Reply katehhoward January 12, 2012 ETHAN NEEDS TO BE A SCORPIO….THAT WHOLE LUKE SON CRAP FEST WAS RIDICULOUS. PLEASE LET EMMA SAMMS HAVE A GREAT STORY LINE. THEY ARE BRING BACK THE KGB AND I LOVE THIS SO FAR. NOW BRING BACK MEGAN WARDS AS THE REAL KATE HOWARD AND THERE COULD BE A CHANCE FOR GH.

Ethan’s leaving the show, no? Why would they bother changing the paternity of a characer that’s being written out? Anyhow, it’s nice for GH fans that Holly’s returning. Myself, I’d like to see Tiffany, Sean, Cheryl, Katherine Delafield, Lucy, Scott, Colton Shore, RealFelicia, RealAJ (Kanan), and Jagger Cates return. All or any of them, certainly before Holly. Log in to Reply soapfan616 January 12, 2012 Please soap goddesses: Let the writers review tapes from the mid-eighties as they write for Holly. Remember Holly and Robert in the bath tub together? Smokin’…. The woman who was in town under Guza’s sexist and violent and stupid pen needs to turn out to have been Holly’s look alike…what was her name…Paloma? Log in to Reply GHFan777 January 12, 2012 I always loved Holly…I am very happy to hear this news…I figure it wont be a long stay…but hopefully they will correct the mistake of making Ethan a Spencer…From Ethan’s dialogue today….I think the story line may be headed in that direction.

They were my all time favorite GH couple. This news has me excited and may start watching again. I have not tuned in for about 2 years. I am keeping my fingers crossed! Log in to Reply samIShot January 12, 2012 Great news… but I’m still waiting for the headline “Stuart Damon returns to General Hospital!” I don’t care how Frank and Ron do it but just make Alan undead and get that Quartermaine family back on the air! ___ Not JUST alan, but also Emily and AJ. The Q’s need to be the central focus. Have Helena holding ALL THREE. OLTL writers have plenty of experience bringing back the clesrly dead (gigi and todd #1). This show can thrive on the upper cast and leave the lower cast off. Obviously Sonny/Carly and Jason All major Qs (even bring back Dillon (Rex), Ned, and the dead Qs, Alexis and family, bring back original Kristina, Luke, Anna, Robert, Holly, etc… One thing OLTL was good at was family… I hope for good things for the Quartermaines.. Log in to Reply SoapyBitch January 13, 2012 Emma Samms was always Fallon to me and then I ended up getting Dynasty – the early seasons on dvd and Pamela Martin totally did the spoiled daddy’s girl really well. It’s super superficial, but I am glad she grew her hair out. I didn’t recognize her with the short hair the last time she was on. She gives good hair tho. Log in to Reply mafelix86 January 13, 2012 Wow!! With the return of Hughes, Rogers and Samms, it looks like GH will once again be the soap I once knew and loved. I haven’t watched GH in years, but with the firing of JFP and the hiring of Frank and Ron, I’m gonna be cautiously optimistic about this. I’ll tune into GH once Ron’s material starts airing, whenever that’ll be. Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 January 13, 2012 Here’s also hoping Miss Bobbie Spencer comes back as well….want to see her on the show again. And Lucy Coe too!!! Log in to Reply ahanshew January 13, 2012 Holy hell! This is awesome! Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones January 13, 2012 Where the hell is Jessie Brewer? And where is Gee Sung? And what about Casey! I WANT CASEY BACK! Log in to Reply DisillusionedGHfan January 13, 2012 I guess when you only have to budget one soap, you can pull all the big names out of your derriere in the hopes people will watch. …and they will with the returns of Anna, Robert, Holly and whoever else comes down the pike. Getting viewers to stay however, will depend on content. Heres hoping! I really would LOVE to see GH recapture its glory, but seriously, it means backburnering the Sonny-Jason kill a thug a day hour! Log in to Reply appleridge January 13, 2012 Helena coulda faked Alan’s death to get back at Edward For the Ice Princess Caper. He started that whole drama in 1980 Log in to Reply soapfan616 January 13, 2012 [quote=DonnyA2001]Here’s also hoping Miss Bobbie Spencer comes back as well….want to see her on the show again.

It is “Abtastic Ewen” the nudoc on GH. I am quite taken with him lol. I find him to be the first major “eye candy”,the show has brought on in a very long time….And he can act…I just hope they make him a good and interesting character now.[/quote] ***** He certainly makes me moist in places I didn’t know I had. Eye candy never hurt, especially if they can’t act in a great story line.

I get so frustrated when people talk about balance. How can there be balance when your two lead characters are killers. How do you tell a heartfelt story of lost love or loss then go watch Jason shoot someone? How do you have a romantic or funny story and then turn our attentions to Sonny’s latest revenge plot? You can’t balance good melodrama soap opera with daily talks of killing. And you can’t have a good story of romance and hope when the lead actor portrays a serial killer. SORRY. Just can’t be done! I too am happy to see the favs return. But I also remember what Guza did to them several times over the past decade. A return doesn’t equal a good story I want to see. Good writing is the most important. Log in to Reply alexisfan January 13, 2012 Finally, I get a Cassadine adventure again after 30 yrs! Happy Emma S is returning but sad that GH has yet to bring back Lexi Ainsworth. Since the first time I saw Ethan and Kristina together on screen, I’ve been hoping someone would finally remember she is a Cassadine and we would have an old fashioned Spencer/Cassie adventure with Ethan and Kristina as the new Luke and Laura. Emma was the actress that endeared me to GH in the early 80’s and it is bittersweet for me to finally get her back only to not be sure if I can bring myself to watch since it is such a hollow victory. I would pay money to see Luke and Holly take on Helena with Ethan and Kristina! If it is not too late, please Ron and Frank fix the travesty of Lexi’s firing and make this my dream storyline come true!!

Log in to Reply sallyv January 13, 2012 I’m probably the only one that doesn’t want to change the fact that Ethan is Luke’s son. I feel it’s too late at this point. Ethan has developed a nice relationship with his sister, brother and Luke, so the time has long past to change that relationship IMHO. I am glad that Holly is coming back and I agree with alexisfan…it would be fun to see Holly, Luke, Ethan and Kristina battle Helena. But they should also briefly bring back Nicholas for that story. Log in to Reply js3557 January 13, 2012 I didn’t like that Ethan was Luke’s son, but I think it is too late to change this…especially since Robin is leaving. What would be the point of making him a Scorpio if Robin is gone? Log in to Reply OldGHFan January 13, 2012 Oh, it’s never too late to change things on a soap. That why they call it a soap. Things shouldn’t stay the same. GH needs a shake-up. Besides, I think it would create some great scenes for Tristan and Tony.
