Log in to Reply stefanstavros February 6, 2013 It’s about time! RESPECT for Barbara Jean! Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. February 6, 2013 Yayyyy! I’ve always loved Bobbie. Bobbie was GH for many years. I started watching when she would always tell Carly how she was trash and was going to be a bad mother. That was great stuff. Log in to Reply cord2012 February 6, 2013 Wow. The GH cast must be huge right now! It seems like there are two or three cast return notices a week. Log in to Reply strawberrygurl22 February 6, 2013 Yesssss! The only Spencer I actually like! Log in to Reply Yoryla February 6, 2013 THIS. IS. AMAZING. ! Bobbie Spencer, R.N. is my absolutely third most-anticipated return to the show, right after Laura (check!) and Audrey (here’s hoping!). And for some reason I thought this was the one return we wouldn’t be able to see. Luckily I was wrong! Everytime I think Frank and Ron can’t possibly do anything MORE to amaze me, nope – I’m wrong! Wow! Log in to Reply nysam February 6, 2013 I wonder whose face she will return with????? I don’t mean Duke’s or Faison’s. Log in to Reply No Daisy February 6, 2013 I’m hap to hear this. Bobbie/Scottie/Laura was my first soap triangle and I’ve never looked back since. Then add Liuke and the hatred he and Scottie have-I hope that’s where this sstory goes- I’d love to see that dynamic again. Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 February 6, 2013 I am SOOO very excited about this. I think we can now settle down when it comes to bringing back the big popular characters we all know and love (characters who have died don’t count!) All is right in PC! BTW, Hasn’t Bobbie supposedly always been in Port Charles this entire time? She never really left town right? Log in to Reply sweetiepie February 6, 2013 Can Jax please come back now?? I want Carly back with Jax. Log in to Reply Jeff February 6, 2013 I read it’s just 3 shows. WAKE UP FRANK AND RON. The fans want Bobbie back all the time. Carly needs a momma, Luke needs a sister, Felicia needs a friend, Laura needs a nemisis, Scotty needs a love interest when he gets back, Felix needs her son Lucas as a boyfriend, and Epiphany needs to go and make room for the real head nurse at GH. Maybe Ephiphany can be the next victim of Caleb. Keep Jackie around for the long haul! Log in to Reply bobbyew February 6, 2013 Caleb moves like Bill! Thought I was watching True Blood today. Go GH can’t wait to see all of our faves. Welcome back Genie, Jackie, and all of our classic faves.

Log in to Reply tealita February 6, 2013 OMG! I can’t believe it’s really happening. Her limited return makes me wonder if there’s any truth to the rumors that Anthony Geary is retiring. I do wish Zeman could stay longer, though. I adore Bobbie. Oh…and she looks FINE, btw. Let’s have none of THAT! Log in to Reply katehhoward February 6, 2013 darling that is a very interesting flag picture. Log in to Reply Angie Lucy February 6, 2013 It’s about time! Log in to Reply Jeff February 6, 2013 Read the info on Soap Opera Digest.com Log in to Reply MysteryStory February 6, 2013 Caleb shouldn’t kill Epiphany. I like her character but wish they would show get more. Honestly, GH needs some color! Log in to Reply samIShot February 6, 2013 You ever consider the possibility that maybe it is her decision to come back for a short stint and not Cartini? Also, yes the cast is HUGE, but it keeps a good pace. We don’t get overwhelmed with one storyline like the old days with Sonny/Jason/Carly. So the Nurses Ball is the first week of April and Lucy is still yelling about vampires and they have no funding…. Im actually intrigued to see how they pull this off. I also assume Robin will be back and that means Jerry and Faison too….. Can we get the cast to 100? Log in to Reply Soap_Stud February 6, 2013 THree episodes is a start, guys. I believe Robin Mattson’s stint was expected to be a lot shorter and she is still on! If she clicks and it works and there is story, she will be back. Log in to Reply katehhoward February 6, 2013 A lot of the returns are just for short stays which I like. We do not really know who is on contract. I think the list of actors on contract at GH has gotten small. Carly, Sonny, Connie, Michael, Sam, Lulu, Maxie, Michael, Alexis, Patrick, Brit, Sabrina, Spin, Elizabeth, Olivia, Todd, McBain, Anna, Luke, Tracy, Dante, Todd, Johnny, AJ, Laura and I think Kristina. That is all. Some of the characters need to be taken off contract. The rest of the characters are just recurring and off contract so with that the show is saving a bundle. Please do not forget that FV and RC did an amazing job budgeting OLTL. Plus with all those other shows flopping on ABC daytime more funds are going into GH. Log in to Reply appleridge February 7, 2013 Im sure she will be on more than 3 shows. So happy Log in to Reply iowaninmn February 7, 2013 34 years ago … I remember Laura knocking on Scotty’s apartment door only to have Bobbie open the door implying that she had been in bed with Scotty. Laura was so hurt and Bobbie just laughed. She was so bad!!! At 7 years old, I loved her! I’m as happy about this return as any other. Ever day I check online, THIS is the story I hope to find!!! Hope Bobbie gets to stay long term. And please … don’t make her return focus on Carly. Have her bring back Lucas. Make it about anything else. Don’t bring her back just to prop up the harpy Carly. Maybe at the Nurse’s Ball, Bobbie could MC a tribute to all the nurses at GH over the years … nurses like Amy Vining and Jessie Brewer, who never got a proper farewell. Log in to Reply Cyberologist February 7, 2013 Even though its another vet driving by it’ll be great to see her again and great buzz for the show…I’m sure she’ll help not hinder their ratings surge and will have a plethoria of scenes with the sainted one (Sabrina) probably her daughter too. Log in to Reply Peterascal February 7, 2013 So awesome Bobbie’s back! Log in to Reply SteveHardy February 7, 2013 [quote=nysam]I wonder whose face she will return with????? I don’t mean Duke’s or Faison’s.[/quote] Ah, leave the poor woman alone. Who cares about the work she’s done. At least we have her to come back. Log in to Reply TomZulawski February 7, 2013 I agree, I think she looks fantastic. So happy for Jackie and Bobbie to return home to General Hospital where she belongs. Bobbie Spencer is an incredible part of the 50 years that makes up General Hospital and is largely responsible for the success of the show. Its great to have Bobbie back where she belongs. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 February 7, 2013 So happy Bobbie is coming back!!You have to love Frank V for making all these returns possible. Now give her some good scenes, with Luke and Scotty and Carly. Would love to see her and Luke hit the dance floor at the Nurses Ball like they did years ago.
