Chris Robinson Returns as General Hospital's Dr. Rick Webber?!






Forget The Sopranos; the new cable hit General Hospital appears to be aping is The Walking Dead! TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan is reporting Chris Robinson is returning as Dr. Rick Webber, just in time for the sudser's 50th Anniversary.

Fans will recall Rick died in 2002, with his stepdaughter Laura (Genie Francis) believing she'd done the deed. As it turned out, it was ex-hubby Scotty (Kin Shriner) who ended the life of the man Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Lesley (Denise Alexander) spent the late 70's and early 80's fighting over. According to Robinson:

I could never have predicted I'd be rejoining the group but I guess anything is possible on a soap, even when you've been dead 10 years!

I like what Ron Carlivati has to say about the character of Rick. And if Rick's alive ... well maybe Monica is in for some romance again as well!? Anyway we'll see how this all works out. Smile

That was the storyline that ended my 20+ years of watching GH. I've hated Guza and Phelps ever since then... and always will.

If Rick Webber can come back from the dead after being gone for ten years, then so can Jacob Martin Morgan!

I'm so happy to hear this ... and it's a real surprise! I grew up watching the evil Monica trying to break up good docs Rick and Lesley Webber. Classic daytime TV.

I tuned out for about 10 years after Rick was killed. If Scotty killed him, does Laura know that? Does she still blame herself for his death? How can Laura be ok with Scott if she knows he killed her stepfather?

Here's hoping the other Dr. Webber's -- Lesley and Jeff -- come back too!!!

This is GREAT news! I have faith that Frank and Ron will do justice to Rick this time around. I hope that he will share scenes Denise Alexander and Leslie Charleson.

Happy to see Rick will be back, would be happier if he were returning with Lesley. Monica lived and loved Alan for a LOT of years so honor that! Give Rick and Lesley fans a happy ending and there are A LOT of us, just go check out all of the You Tube channels dedicated to them.

Happy to see him back and the rewriting of history. But I will hold out hope that it's not an evil twin hired by Helena to ruin Laura OR Monica had him at the same hospital as AJ or that he faked his own death to get away with murder

Or any other simple silly revelation.

But fingers crossed because I love the return of this star.

Please clean up that crap Guza & Co. shoveled over Rick Webber. I'm not much for holding grudges, but I hold a big one over that.

Monica and the Q Mansion need a man.....maybe Rick can fulfill that - I'd love to see Tracy's reaction to Monica and Rick getting back together -

Does anyone know how long Chris Robinson is back for? I thought I read somewhere that he was just appearing on April 1, with Monica. Does anyone have any additional information?
