    I think she looks better than the last time she was on. I think her “work” has settled in a bit. Her lips aren’t as poofy.

    And who the hell cares anyway, Bobbie is back!

    I paused my DVR at the same exact spot as the at first shot! They were avoiding close-ups of her til the very end.

    She looks soooo much better than the last time she was on AND in some of the pictures kicking around the internet of her extreme plastic surgery. I think she’s had some things corrected. But like diremommy said… who cares, Bobbie is back!

    I love her. Her acting was spot on. Loved the tears in her eyes when she saw Luke. I almost cried myself. They must be good friends in real life. Loved her and Scotty.

    Jackie Zeman’s Bobbie is so important to GH’s history. I am so glad she is back, even if it is just for a handful of episodes. I think she looks much better than she did on her list stint. I look forward to seeing more of Bobbie.

    What I don’t understand is why they don’t write her plastic surgery into the show. It is obvious to the audience that Jackie has had work done so why not have one line where Luke says “Bobbie, you look great. Seattle suits you.” Bobbie replies “Big brother, Seattle is wonderful but I had a bit of nip and tuck.”

    Jackie can’t know that the audience doesn’t notice the difference so simply address the elephant in the room and make it part of the story.

    I was thrilled to once again see Laura, Bobbie, and Scotty all together. They were the original love triangle that I got me watching General Hospital.

    I was tearing up throughout both Thursdays and Friday’s episodes. So much good stuff!

    So great to have Bobbie back on screen and sharing dialogue with Luke, Laura and Scotty. Lots of great history back together again. I thought she fell right back into the Bobbie I loved and remembered from the 90s. I also thought her hair color and length looked really good on her. Most of all I was happy not to hear her talking in little kiddie voice like the her last time on GH with Ethan at the hospital. VAST improvement!

    Great to have Jackie Z. back on the show.

    I use to LOVE Bobbie. I still recall those scenes with the real Carly (SJB) told Bobbie she was her daughter.

    That being said, I did miss her all these years. I’m glad her face didn’t look like it did the last time she was on.

    I must say though, I wish these women in daytime would call the doctor who does Tracy B. (Lauren from Y&R) face. You can tell she has had surgery but it looks so flawless. She’s still beautiful.

    It was great!

    She still has the best relationship with both Luke and Scotty.

    And she looked much, much better than I expected. I had seen some pictures of her from the last couple of years, and in comparison she looked very nice!

    and @nysam: Why on earth should they write it into the script, when it has absolutely NO bearing on her character or storyline whatsoever.

    She does look a lot better then the last time she was on. I like her so much better with the reddish hair then when she wore it very dark. It made her look older. She did over-due the lips, she should just leave everything alone because she looks good. Women have to accept when they are getting older. Look at Tracy and Lucy. They are both attractive middle-age women who haven’t touched their faces. Anyway, love having Bobbie back and looking forward to more scenes with her and Luke and Scotty and I hope with Noah when he returns.

    If I’m not mistaken, Jacklyn is like many actresses who do not speak about any alleged plastic surgery, despite the evidence. Isn’t her ex-husband a surgeon?

    Jackie looked great and her acting didn’t miss a beat. Sure, she’s had a few alterations, but they have gelled, and I’m glad to have her back in Port Charles as Bobbie, where she belongs!

    I wouldn’t care if she had a third eye put on, Bobbie’s back! Luke has missed his sister and Carly sorely needs her mother. Now bring Lucas back to pair with Felix and you’d have some good story!

    As for JZ’s plastic surgery, why is it an issue? No one said a thing about JR Martinez and he’s clearly had work done! Yes, I know, it’s for totally different reasons, but for me, he was much more jarring to look at, although eventually I got used to it. For me, it’s more about JZ’s acting and how she fits into the story, and I’m very happy to have her back, even if it is only short-term.

    First I love Jackie and Bobbie Spencer however, something was off the first day. Reunion with Luke was pretty good however scene with Laura lacking something. That may be coming from Genie Francis though and she is not acting like our Laura. I know Genie wants Laura to be strong but she has lost something in the process. Laura is not right… Please fix!

    Are we going to actually get scenes with Bobbie and Carly though? I certainly hope so! Too bad it won’t be the realistic scenes of Carly going off on Bobbie for not coming to her grandson’s trial, her granddaughter’s cancer ordeal or her nephew getting killed, etc but comes back the second Lulu, her niece, disappeared. BTW I hope we see scenes of Carly handing out flyers on Monday. I blame those things on the old regime so it’s ok for me the viewer to forgive but not the characters. When events like that happen, all the characters need to say I that Bobbie was in the other room, much like DOOL did when Alice or Mickey died. It at least softens the blow of characters’ children and loved ones not coming back for big events.

    I agree with Blinkfm about Laura, she’s acting like she’s in a fog or something. Laura lite. She hasn’t shown much real emotion in any scene so far. It’s like Scotty has her scared to speak out or something, she doesn’t act like a woman in love and excited to get married, or even like her daughter is missing.

    I agree, who cares what she’s done to herself? ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ have done worse and people love them. I also suggested a Lucas/Felix pairing. I’m hoping that Felix might have a greater tie to GH, maybe he’s actually Tom Hardy Jr’s son with Simone Ravelle. Maybe he’s even Tom Hardy III, aka Tommy. This would also make Felix and Scott Baldwin cousins since Tom Baldwin (Tom Hardy’s bio father) and Scott’s adoptive father Lee Baldwin were brothers.

    I agree with early posters, JZ brought back Bobbie instantly, she was standing up to and poo pooing Luke in about a hot minute, it was great. I was emotional the entire episode! Did anyone notice the constant finger rubbing of Genie and Jackie? THESE are the special things about soaps, my friends! I was a sucker, i loved the entire Friday episode!

    Love Bobbie and so glad she’s back. Was hoping she would say Lucas was a doctor like his father Tony. I hope he comes back too. Keep Bobbie on the show though.
