The Brothers Jacks Return to Port Charles on General Hospital!






If you read my cryptic, General Hospital spoilers on Friday, you've likely already guessed a couple of my riddles. The dastardly villain I alluded to was of course Jerry Jacks, played once again by Sebastian Roche. Meanwhile, the baby daddy back to complicate his ex's love life, is Jerry's kid brother, Jasper "Jax" Jacks (Ingo Rademacher), who is also returning to the ABC serial.

Roche gave an interview with TV Guide's Michael Logan previewing the havoc his character plans to wreak on Port Charles this time around. Rademacher has been tweeting his excitement over the returns as well. Are you pumped to see the brothers Jacks back in Port Charles? Sound off in the comments!

If we can add Ewan into that shot - I can die a happy woman. Now that is all kinds of pretty and those accents.

I'm happy they are back!

I take Sebastian Roché wherever I can get him. This man is so good playing evil. Love My only hope is that Jerry isn't working alone. Somehow I don't see him making an operation like this work. Not without help from some other infamous villain.

I was sad to see Jax go in the first place and how the character was written out was poorly done on Garin Wolf's part. I'm happy he's back. But for how long?
I'm excited to see what Jax has to say about Carly's relationship to Johnny. And as long as they keep Jax away from Sonny I'm fine. I'm so over this feud.

Wonderful news! Love Jax and Ingo Rademacher - hope to see him for as long as possible!

And I agree, keep him away from Sonny, or at least no battles! Have him concentrate on Carly and Josslyn.

I hate ewan's accent! I can barely understand him! love Jax/hate Jerry!
what in the world could they possibly have against Robin? makes no sense!
and Patrick needs to put his big boy pants on! stop that whining and help your little girl cope! I enjoyed the new Kate's acting skills at first but I am now SO tired of her & Sonny rehashing it! omg! Lulu in business w/Johnny, who she used to sleep with, should make Dante MAD! this is her passion? a nightclcub? oh please! I hope Sean and Alexis get together but that boy and Molly are a disaster in the making! he has no respect! and Sean appears to have no clue how to raise a teenager! a 3 line lecture is not gonna get it...Poor Mac..always a bridesmaid, never a bride! although I hate Todd, as Todd, on GH he is a really GOOD Todd! he's evil..I enjoy it. He has a sense of humor about it...unlike Sonny, who's so busy threatening everyone and never doing anything, to anyone! Im not enjoying Johnny at all anymore! he was so cute! now even his voice is stupidish! as for Trey? ugh as for Trey's dad? ugh as for the new Kristina? ugh she looks like she escaped from a mexican t.v.telenovela! and she looks about 25 years old!
Liz is just sad...cant keep Lucky..cant get Jason...used by Ewan..and way
too SKINNY! she doesnt seem to have chemistry with anyone, ever! I know they want us to "see" it, but I never do, with her~
crazy Heather!~ what a hoot! feel bad for Olivia...but Steve? no way! he got just what he asked for...a nutty mother who should never have been released! but she IS funny! and her and Todd play off one another perfectly!
so all in all, OLTL and G"H...pretty good match....with the exception of naive, wide eyed Starr....omg girl..wake up!
jmo, liz, out

I'm glad Jax is back, but not Jerry. We have one irredeemable character (Heather) already, we don't need another one. Oh well, if Jerry gets too bad I can always FF him, but I can't afford another FF-able character...there are too many already.

I enjoy SR coming back (even if not for the long term), as Jerry Jacks. His character is a combination of suave and diabolical, in the mold of a "James Bond" type villain. As for IR, they ill-advisedly wrote him off and his Jax was, for my taste, the best match for LW's Carly. Where I hope thge writers don't drop the ball on his return is there being another bitter custody war for Josslyn. That was exhausting as well as maddening to watch... Innocent

The Australian I'd love to see back is Robert Scorpio, the original, super spy Aussie of Port Charles. I would tuned back into GH almost immediately if he came back!! but, Anyway, I'm happy for the Jack fans, to see their favorites again is thrilling.. I just only wish I could get back my favorite (Robert Scorpio) However, I do love, love the Australians and their sexy, accent..

So excited! I love Jax and always have. I was actually hoping that they would do a Liz/Jax pairing after Jake's death. It would have been so soapy! Oh well.....hope Jax is back for a long time.

I'm not happy about Jerry Jacks being back. He's all kinds of evil and Heather provides enough of that already! And they haven't explained how he survived the boat explosion. Plus, whenever Jerry appears people get hurt and people die. Haven't we had enough of that with Heather and Anthony's escapades?

As for Jax... if they write him the way he used to be written when he first came to GH then great. If they write him the way he was written during his last year on the soap, then no thank you. The original Jax was fun to watch, had great chemistry with Carly and lots of women and was full of adventure and charm. The Jax that left was bitter and vengeful and downright mean. I don't care to watch that Jax again!

Not for nothing Sassy but I think bitter ,vengeful, and mean is exactly how I would be if I had to deal with Sonny.,

GHvetfan - I don't disagree with that. I just don't want to see it all over again.

I wouldnt want to see it either unless Jax was allowed to squash Sonny like a bug under his shoe.

I am so happy to have Jax/Ingo back, I was upset when they let him go. They need to put him back on contract. I loved him and Carly together. Now have them bring back Nickolas and Lucky! With those 3 plus Steve, Dante & Patrick...great story lines. Also bring back Robin!!

Jax is another great character that was criminally misused by the former regime. If we can get the swashbuckling corporate raider back, then I'm all for it. And I agree that I don't want him consumed with Sonny. I actually want him squared off against Todd, and not over a woman either (although that could be interesting). Todd is the illegitimate son trying to wear a crown that was withheld from him. Jax is the golden boy who's had everything handed to him. I can see Todd hating that about Jax, even if he wouldn't admit it, and trying to take him down in order to feel better. Jax would take Todd down because it would be yet another empire he could grab and make a killing off of, plus he just plain wouldn't like the guy.

Love Jax and like Jerry too, Jerry is a great bad guy. Jax and Carly love them together. I hope Jax is back to stay, miss him. Please come back with longer hair, I don't like the short hair look on him.

I haven't missed Jax one bit and I can see them dusting off the old "I need to keep Josslyn safe" scripts." Ugh. That was totally tedious. I would rather see those two though than the new crop - McBain, Starrrrrrrrrrrr, Tea, etc. They can keep Todd. He is actually entertaining.

Sebastian Roche has popped up on a few of my nighttime shows so seeing him on Friday was a great surprise, I have always felt that making Mr. Craig Jerry was a mistake because Mr. Craig was irredeemable. I think TPTB fell in love with Mr. Roche and wanted him on contract and so a decision was made.

I can understand the desire to get SR on contract, heck, I dont understand why he isnt a movie star, that said, I wish he wasnt playing Jerry Jacks. BTW, I also feel like his accent is more British than Australian.

Yay! I have really missed Jax and I cannot wait for him to reconnect with his baby! She is his first and only kid (that we know of-- have always hoped that Brenda's son was his), and it doesn't make sense that he would leave her for all this time. I hope he bankrupts Sonny. And I hope that "Jerry" (have never liked that they made Mr. Craig fun-loving con Jerry Jax), is all up in Sonny's ass for trying to kill his brother.

Also wish that Jax would come back with Brenda, his wife, and their son... So that I could watch both Carly and Sonny's heads explode.

I always thought it was very weak when Jerry had the hostage crisis in the Metro Court and got away it. I mean, really?? You do something like that and you dont spend anytime in the slammer??
