Tristan Rogers Headed Back to The Young and the Restless





Tristan Rogers isn't letting any grass grow under his feet. On the heels of reprising the role of Robert Scorpio on General Hospital, the soap vet is headed back to The Young and the Restless, reports Soap Opera Weekly. Look for Genevieve's (Genie Francis) ex-husband—and Jill's (Jess Walton) on again/off again beau— Colin Ashby to be back in Genoa City "indefinitely."

    GOOD!

    I liked him with Jill, but the writers kept ruining him by throwing every evil thing they could think.

    hopefully he’ll get a good redemption storyline and be back with Jill for good.

    I read on Michael Fairman’s website that Tristan Rodgers said that Colin will only be on for only a few episodes of Y&R in April, and then dissapear! He will not be on “indefinitley”!

    Stupid!

    First of all, MAB needs to stop letting people go only to bring them back six months later – sometimes even with the same story. We’ve seen enough of this. It doesn’t do the actors or characters any favors.
    Ronan, Chance, Patty, Daisy and now Colin … it just shows what a bad writer MAB is. There is no consistency, no real character development – nothing.

    Second, after the way Colin was written and Tristan left Y&R, I can’t believe he’s signing up for this crap again. At one point he seems angry that GH only signed him on for seven episodes but then Maria can pull shit like this.

    Third. I really wished Tristan would have stayed tuned for his role on GH. I’d wish that Ron and Frank would have talked to him from the beginning. Because clearly there is more to Robert’s role in this storyline … the ending was very open and we all thought that he would be back eventually. It’s sad that this might not be happening now – at least not for another six months before Maria let’s him go again – because I’d take Robert Scorpio over Colin Atkinson every single day!!!!!

    Good – But I’m not sure how MAB is going to pull Colin coming back to GC, off? He left the most hated man in town. But, bringing Colin shows how dedicated to Jess Walton that MAB is, so bring him back, because we all like Jill. As long as you don’t mess it up, MAB.

    YES!!!!!!!!!!

    Only my opinion, but I just loved him on Y&R….was GREAT with Jess Walton….but he played a character that was created a bit….oddly? (Australian Cattle Mob?? Whaaaaa???) and wasn’t all Over the Top (Angelo) or too seriouso (Tucker….)

    Again, somewhere I read that Tristen was axed to bring a new side to Genevieve (She started out HOOORRRRRIBLE!) and I kind of always expected him back. Again, only my opinion, but I DID like Tristen in Genoa City.

    Well, now I have to start watching Y&R again because I’ll watch anything with Tristan. However, GH really needed Robert Scorpio, he was the only guest so far that actually got GH in the 2 on their first airdate, actually, the week of Tristan’s comeback Feb, 27 was a great week in demos for GH too and they let him go? And the rating being declining every since he left..I don’t understand the thinking over at GH.

    RC/FV are the ones who let him go.Tristan came onto his FB and said it was not his idea to leave GH and that he wanted to stay and go to the funeral.So the people to blame are RC/FV NOT Tristian.

    I do blame Ron/Frank for this because Tristan wanted to be at GH, he was excited to go back to GH and GH had him and look how Ron’s wrote him? and then they sent him away. How do you sens away the 3rd most popular character in GH history? Ron/Frank should have known a whole lot of old time viewers would tuned back in to see him and they did..Ron/Frank made a huge mistake in this situation..Well,since TR time is brief on Y&R, I certainly hope Ron/Frank grab him and give proper closure to Robert/R/H and the Scorpios viewers..Ron/Frank really alienating a lot of viewers with the way they handle Robert Scorpio return. IMO

    Where did I blame Tristan??? I did no such thing. I even said that Ron and Frank should have talk to him.
    I know that it wasn’t Tristan’s idea to leave GH or do just such a short stint. Didn’t say that either. -.-

    I said that Y&R handled him badly and that he was in for a big disappointment there. And he probably will be in for another disappointment again – no difference to GH. Look at what they did with Stacy Haiduk. Believe me Tristan will end up in a similar situation. That’s how MAB rules these days.

    His short term gimmick return to GH gave us long time GH vets emotional whiplash. He proved he can bring new emotional depths to Robert (despite the silliness of his exit storyline) and that viewers will tune back in to see him, and tune out when he’s not on.

    So of course, GH choses to bring on another killer/criminal and lets Robert Scorpio go…it’s tough being a GH fan but I wish TR the best. Always appreciated him as an actor and nearly 100% agree with him when he makes comments about the state of soap opera and specifically how GH has been dying a slow death for a decade.

    I wish he would have stayed on GH and been BFF’s with Luke. GH doesn’t have enough BFF’s going on. They could have thrown Coleman in the mix. He looks like he would be a good third wheel with those guys.

    I liked him on Y/R when he first came on I had very high hopes even when they wrote him with Lame & Silly. I kept hoping then came the Genevieve shenanigans & then they wrote him under with the stealing the babies.

    I enjoyed the chemistry he had with Jess Walton’s Jill but it seems many times when soaps have a winning team (esp Y/R) they break them up in short order. I realize couples in soaps do not (nor should not) stay together forever but within a few months Y/R break up to make up then the cycle starts all over again …same w/redemption…they successfully spend a lot of time to redeem characters only to throw them under quickerthanthis e.g. Adam…how are they going to fix Colin?

    After what GH did to Robert Scrorpio with him running after Ethan I’m in no hurry to see him there…he was written terribly. Then at a blink of an eye shipped off…since Robin is alive I could be down with him getting a clue or something that caused him to take off re: that …but Helena & Ethan?s Especially after dumb Luke chose to save her life in a storyline a few years ago. He should have offed her when he had the chance.

    I don’t get the Robert Scorpio love. I was not familiar with him when he was younger so maybe that is where it started. I have only seen him in last two years or so in roles and I just don’t get him.

    I really thought the story he got on GH was terrible. Even though I could care less about Holly, Luke, Scorpio stuff, and add Ethen it was still dumb to me. Him left chasing after Ethan. Dumb. Then daytime wonders why it is in trouble. Why couldn’t they just have him be Ethan”s father and the three leave together? Then Luke would have the reality of breaking the news to his other children that Ethan was not their brother….a few good scenes where it didn’t matter to LuLu and that she would always still think of him as her brother. So much more soapy than the stupid story they gave the three of them.

    Even if the decision was to keep Anna and Luke, it still would have been better the way I described. Current fans are not that into the Scorpio stuff. At least I am not.

    I dont’ care for him as Colin either. I did in some scenes but not the overall character.

    I guess this is good for Tristan fans.. Just hope he gets better story and writing and than I will be open to his character.

    Well I’m happy as a clam. I loved Tristan on Y&R, and his chemistry with Jess, and was FLOORED when they gave him the boot. Who breaks up chemistry like that? (MAB, that’s who).

    I never saw TR on GH, but he’s one *transplant from another soap* I can live with. Here’s hoping he’s returning to plug some BULLETS into Genevieve’s empty head. Not to mention LILY’S.

    I hope not. I don’t wanna see Colin as Victor’s subordinate, because you know that’s how it would go down.

    I’m happy TR is going to a show (Y&R) that may appreciate him. It’s hard to believe that the 3rd most popular character in GH history gets spit upon when he returns to his old stomping ground. I agree with another poster that Robert, Holly and Ethan should have left together as a family if they just wanted to do Luke & Anna. TPTB at GH are idiots.

    THIS, THIS, THIS!

    GH totally blew it with their writing and treatment of Robert. Why did they send him away so quickly? And why with such a lame plot? They practically destroyed the beloved character and left former die-hard fans like me bewildered & pissed.

    The way RC/FV treated him, MAB must look like a freaking genius right now. Yeah, no kidding, I’m standing by that one.

    Well, at least Tristan is going somewhere he’s appreciated. I hope it’s only short term. “Indefinitely” scares me. I want RC and FV to beg him back to GH. If they’re smart, they will.

    We are used to the highly lauded recent returns of many former Y&R alumni. How long do they stay? Hours? One Day? One Week?

    But honestly … I just don’t get how that man could have fathered that uber wimp of a son of his. Maybe he should join forces with his ex and be that rival that Victor (and Jack) so richly deserves.

    Don’t feel bad I didn’t care about him the way Guza & RC wrote Robert Scorpio and I have loved this character when he was younger & Started on GH in the 80s…These writers act like they’re truly terrified to write Robert Scorpio, this awesome character in character, my guess if they did write him in character he’ll be16 a force to be reckon with.
