HomeTVGeneral HospitalSHOCKER: Robert Kelker Kelly Brings Stavros Cassadine Back From The Dead on General Hospital! Jamey Giddens April 10, 2013 General Hospital, General Hospital Spoilers 95 Comments General Hospital pulled off one doozy of a surprise at the end of today's episode. Stavros Cassadine, the maniacal son of the late Mikkos (John Colicos) and Helena (Constance Towers) is alive, well and once again being played by the best looking man to ever star on a daytime soap, Robert Kelker Kelly! TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan got the exclusive scoop from head writer Ron Carlivati. Here's an excerpt: TV Guide Magazine: Stavros, eh? Another brilliantly kept secret! Carlivati: We really wanted to revive the Spencer-Cassadine feud in a big, surprising way for the 50th anniversary. It's been Luke versus Helena for so long that we needed an additional twist, and since Stavros was never found in that bottomless pit, we don't know what really happened. [Laughs] For all we know, he went all the way through and ended up in China! It seemed so fitting to bring him back, since he had that relationship with Laura and is the father of her son, Nikolas. That's still such a sticking point for Luke. Were you as stunned as we were to see Stavros at the end of today's show? Sound off in the comments! 95 Responses GHvetfan April 10, 2013 Good looking but not the BEST looking!! Log in to Reply samIShot April 10, 2013 GH managed to keep this one under wraps from everything I could find. Log in to Reply No Daisy April 10, 2013 Too bad DC didn’t keep this under wraps or at least out of their headlines until I could get home to watch the episode Log in to Reply nysam April 10, 2013 Not much of a surprise since from the ABC promo released a couple days ago it was obvious it was Stavros and as No Daisy said above since I’m at work this was just spoiled for me and now don’t have to watch the show tonight. Log in to Reply stefanstavros April 10, 2013 I’m THRILLLLLEEDDDD!!!! My namesake is back! I was REALLY hoping either he or Stefan (SN) would be back. I can’t wait. I hope he takes out Luke permanently. Stavros needs to avenge his mother’s death, even though she probably isn’t gone. So Happy!

I am so friggin’ excited!!! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 April 10, 2013 Yes. Yes. Yes. People who don’t want to be spoiled: DON’T read soap blogs, Twitter or anything until you get home. Of course it’s out there when the episode aired. Com’on! Especially if you aren’t east coast based. Anyway, I’m excited that Stavros is alive and well. This is gonna be good. Log in to Reply nysam April 10, 2013 I’m the East Coast and it was ruined because I’m at work. Not sure why everyone has to break the story first. I doubt people are flocking to TVGuide.com to read abotu Stavros or any soap sotry for that matter. Would have been nice to wait till later. Log in to Reply jcmellencamp78 April 10, 2013 I agree that it is out there but his return could have been highlighted in the daily recap. Just marking the headline “SPOILER: RKK brings Stavros back from the dead” doesn’t really help. You put the spoiler in the headline. Might as well have just left the SPOILER word out! Log in to Reply DisillusionedGHfan April 10, 2013 Remember Bumbles from Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer? You could toss him off a cliff and apparently, all he does is bounce?!? Is that what Cassadines do when you throw them off a cliff?!? How many times has Stavros died and come back now? Is this round 3, or round 4? That man’s got stamina! Log in to Reply Richard April 10, 2013 Thanks but couldn’t you have put “spoiler alert” before revealing this? At least give us a chance to get home from work to see it.

I don’t think he would ever be asked back because of that incident. I hear you on Daniel, though…ugh. Log in to Reply Scooter Smith April 10, 2013 I’m sorry, but putting the entire spoiler in the header makes it hard to avoid seeing it when it shows up on your email feed. Perhaps “SHOCKER: GH Brings *SPOILER* back from the dead!” Just something so people like me who are at work, and see it in their email feeds don’t get spoiled without a chance to avoid it. Just kinda frustrating. Log in to Reply Scooter Smith April 10, 2013 [quote=DisillusionedGHfan]Is this round 3, or round 4? That man’s got stamina![/quote] That’s what she said!! Log in to Reply Marcelle April 10, 2013 In these days of social media, twitter, tumblr, blogs, etc, you basically have to treat television shows the way live sports events are treated. Headlines about who won a game go up immediately following the event’s ending, and no one expects anything different. Log in to Reply prettyflower April 10, 2013 THANKS FOR THE DAMN SPOILERS FOR US ON THE WEST COAST. Would expect you to know better!!!! Log in to Reply jcmellencamp78 April 10, 2013 Glad I am not the only one a bit annoyed with this being leaked. I have been on the edge of my seat for most of GH these past weeks because I didn’t know what was going to happen. Today is basically ruined. Log in to Reply dannyro April 10, 2013 Would have been nice if the spoiler hadn’t been in such a prominent place. There’s a huge difference between breaking a story and spoiling a story. You guys spoiled this and made sure every single person who came here couldn’t avoid being spoiled. Well done.

If you are at work, work instead of reading a soap blog who lives from things like this. If you haven’t watched the episode and want to be surprised than don’t look at sites like this or any social media that could ruin it for you. Some really should stop to complain about others and instead look at themselves. But I guess it’s easier the other way… Gee! Log in to Reply thecourt99 April 10, 2013 This kind of stuff isn’t limited to daytime, though. Try being on twitter or FB when Scandal comes on on the east coast. As soon as it airs, the concern about items being spoiled is less of a concern in this digital age. Regarding the show…I am actually intrigued and excited by this.

IS. AMAZING. What an awesome surprise. For some reason I never ever in a million years thought they could pull of the return of Robert Kelker Kelly. For some reason I thought he wouldn’t be offered a return or wouldn’t be interested himself. I thought it was much more likely to get Stephen Nichols back as Stefan (can we still get him too??? Pretty please! lol). So yes, I was VERY surprised. And pleasantly, might I add! What a COUP! :crown: Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 April 10, 2013 I’m glad that Mr. Kelker-Kelly’s return will refresh the Spencer-Cassadine feud. (And I’m pretty sure we haven’t seen the end of Helena.) But I also have to wonder, will this be something that brings him back as a recurring character or, as alluded to in the TV Guide article, a JW “handful of episodes, spread out over a period of time” type of arrangement? And what will TC’s amount of participation be? It strikes me that Nikolas’ involvement would need to be addressed with some sort of longer contract, especially given his characters’ ties with Laura, Luke, L, D, Stavros, Liz, Alexis, etc. Much more than just recurring… 0:) Log in to Reply K8LVR April 10, 2013 I agree with the ones that said don’t read DC until after you watch the show! I don’t care about spoilers, I will still watch my soap regardless – but if I did, I sure as hell wouldn’t be logging onto DC! That’s what I come here for – breaking news in the soap world!

Log in to Reply No Daisy April 10, 2013 To all those judging those that are disgruntled about being spoiled, I would normally agree with your arguement that if I didn’t want to be spoiled I should not look at DC until after watching. I am by no means spoiler free. But then, let me ask…when was the last time DC was “shocked” by what was on the show and had an opportunity to reveal something immediately after watching(or reading it on another site)? It doesn’t happen anymore. There is never a post about the show until Perkie does the recap(which I know not to read until watching) so I didn’t expect one today. I enjoy reading spoilers as much as the next person, but when a soap in this day and age works this hard to keep something under wraps, I’d like the opportunity to be surprised myself when I watch. Pardon me for expressing my disappointment. Log in to Reply smellykellyjay April 10, 2013 I am LIVID! LIVID, I say, because y’all greedy, eager rat bastards at DC and TVG completely, totally, absolutely RUNED this for me. . . This, the ultimate surprising shock! HOW COULD YOU?!?!? Don’t you know?! Don’t you understand?! I am a very busy, important person and will not be able to watch this episode until this weekend because of my very busy, important schedule. You are so selfish, thinking only of yourselves. If you had ANY decency and respect for your readers, of which I am one, you would have waited at least a week to post this information so that I could watch the episode all lean, clean, and pristine, as God herself intended. And what about the people who will watch this episode on YouTube on GH’s 75th anniversary? You’ve runed it for them too. Way to go, DC. Way to go. Now, there’s just no use, no need for me to watch it. I’m devastated. I hope you are happy! You got the scoop but you lost me, the most important thing. It’s ALL about ME and what I want and what I need. WWWWAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens April 10, 2013 So you couldn’t wait a couple of hours until after it airs on the West Coast to post the story??? *** Yeah, because that’s exactly how blogs stay competitive. The majority of our readers are diehard soap fans. They follow soap blogs. They follow the soaps on Twitter, Facebook. After TV Guide ran an interview about today’s reveal, after the East Coast air show, how exactly was this supposed to remain a secret? We didn’t break the story, and it wasn’t our spoiler. We are aggregating content, just like each and every other site that will run this story. Had we not run this story, someone would have posted it in our comments section.

Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens April 11, 2013 I just went over to the actual article that broke this story on TV Guide, and not a one reader is tearing their sack cloth gown over it being spoiled. We’ve spoiled things like this, weeks in advance. The one time, we wait and let someone else spoil something AFTER the episode aired, we catch hell. Log in to Reply logan_echolls April 11, 2013 That man is beautiful. He was fine on DOOL but with that gray hair, he is beautiful looking. Thank goodness GH brought him back. That man is too fine to let waste. GAWD that man is fine. When he appeared on screen, my mouth dropped. Loved today’s episode. First I get Liz and Nik’s exchange. When Liz asked Nik who she was and he was like Hi Elizabeth..swoon… and the way he kept looking at Liz. Niz has so much chemistry. Please Ron, give me my Niz back. Please. Then seeing that fine Stravos. Log in to Reply tmac April 11, 2013 I think the point people are trying to make is don’t reveal the spoiler information in the headline. Make it clear in the headline that the article contains spoiler information and let people decide for themselves if they want to then read the article and get the information. But it is rather useless to lead the headline with “Spoiler” and then divulge the secret information in the same headline. Go ahead and post all the spoilers you want, I enjoy reading them and knowing things in advance. As someone else said, I am more entertained by how the writers craft the return or shocker than by the actual surprise of it. But have some consideration for those people who do want to be surprised. Log in to Reply JasamForever April 11, 2013 I am excited about this although I really have no idea who Stavros is. He is a nice looking man. @logan_echolls- I agree that nikolas and Liz have chemistry. More so than she has had with most other males. But I do think her and A.J. are cute.

I wouldn’t have felt a bit guilty about it, either. I live on the east coast, and I don’t care that people on the west coast have a three hour delay. I don’t have the power to to control time zones or schedule television program. Several weeks ago, people tried to run up Ron Carlivati’s behind about this very same thing on Twitter. His response (paraphrased) was to say that if he doesn’t want to know what happens on Survivor, he stays off Twitter until the show is over. Log in to Reply acespencer April 11, 2013 I am intrigued to see where they are going to go with this story. I am pissed that of all the reveals of who is alive and never perished it had to be Starvros and not Alan and Emily. For the love of GOD please give us back a much alive Alan and Emily. We will buy whatever craptastic storyline you shove at us just to restore the Q’s! Sadly it is a little too late but oh well I know for myself I will take it! I loved the reveal of Brenda and Michael but think there is more to that story and have a feeling no romp was done! I think it would have been a better shock to see him with Liz but we know that won’t happen as she is mixing it up with AJ. I just ask what is Laura’s big secret? Did she know Starvros is alive?

And RC’s interview with TV Guide left me to believe that this might be it. Interview king Michael Logan is asking about Victor but not about Stefan!? Something has to be up with that. Log in to Reply TV Gord April 11, 2013 So, let me get this straight. A bunch of people are upset because DC and other sites “spoiled” today’s show, but if they announced WEEKS AGO that he was coming back, it would have been okay? I don’t get the logic in that at all. I understand the people who say they could have kept his name out of the headline, but every site I’ve been to today has blared his name in the headline, too. Why is this site getting most of the flack? (I know the answer, but people are tired of me pointing it out. ) In the end, the responsibility is yours. If you don’t want to risk bring spoiled, just stay off these sites for a few hours. A FEW HOURS. You can’t blame this website for doing it’s job. Your job–if you want to avoid being spoiled–is to watch the show first, and then go surfing. Log in to Reply SteveHardy April 11, 2013 You gotta be out of your fucking mind to blame soap journalists for breaking news that you seek out by actively visiting the site. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, soap fans aren’t exactly known for being rational… unfortunately they give a bad rep to those of us that are. Log in to Reply smellykellyjay April 11, 2013 Perhaps the DC crew could avoid similar travesties in the future by asking yourselves the following question before posting *anything*. . . WHAT WOULD NANCY LEE GRAHN DO? Log in to Reply Secrets and Lies April 11, 2013 Gotta agree that this was a minor bummer. Part of staying competitive is understanding and respecting that your loyal readers who love your site normally would not expect a big headline about today’s shocking episode at this time of day. Many/most of us watch in the evening but still check the site during the day for our fix of soap news cause y’all do such a great job covering it. Next time just put “*******” for the name and a “?” graphic over the face – it’s win/win cause then people need to click through to the story so you get more page views Log in to Reply DanRyb April 11, 2013 Unfortunately not all of us actually VISIT this site for news. I subscribe via an RSS feed and it showed up in my feed name with the big spoiler-filled headline as I was scrolling through. Couldn’t help but see it! I can see why people would prefer the headline to be “spoiler” instead of the whole shabang in the headline though. I won’t bash the site for breaking news though – that’s what they’re here to do. But I can see where people are coming from, especially anyone in a situation like mine where I was spoiled without even trying to be. Anyway, as others as said, it’s not like I’m NOT going to watch today’s episode. If anything, I’m more excited now to get home and watch how it all plays out. But I’ll definitely say it would’ve been even better had I not known before watching. Log in to Reply robertscorpio April 11, 2013 I just watched the episode on DVR about a hour ago which would have been 6:00pm east coast time and I was shocked by the revelation. The reason why I was shocked by today’s episode is because while at work today or any day I refrain from getting on any soap sites or blogs. I don’t register for any soap opera site alerts to be sent to my email. In other words, I make myself responsible for staying spoiler free, I don’t depend on sites like DC to do it for me. @smellykellyjay…..That post was hilarious!!

Were you all bothered when Stuart Damon, Rachel Ames, Constance Towers, Jackie Zeman, Rick Springfield, his goofy ass son, Kin Shriner, Chris Robinson, ETC. were announced ahead of time?? At least this time you found out on the day of. Trust me, this SHOCKER article does not ruin the story. Your initial shock might be gone, but maybe when Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini are teasing surprises every day you should know not to check around for soap news before you watch the soap. More importantly now I am excited for all of the GH stories that started today. Today was an EPIC episode. I am getting greedy, but I hope either Stefan is trapped with Lulu or Laura already knows that Stefan is alive and she had Lesley or someone else taking care of him. I need Stefan now that I have Stavros! Too excited for to see where this story goes. Log in to Reply LeiLei April 11, 2013 Funny, as soon as TV Guide spoiled it (west coaster) I came to DC to find out what they had to say. Spoilers don’t bother me, I’ve always been a spoiler slut for tv shows as well as books but on the rare occasion when I don’t want to know what’s going to happen, I avoid my FB because I know someone is going to post there about it. It’s the nature of the time we live in. BTW, am thrilled to have Stavros and RKK back! FYI, I’ve been reading this blog for years and had to finally jump in to show my support for DC.

Log in to Reply rlshel1015 April 11, 2013 maybe everybody can do what Jason tells Carly to do and take a breath and count to 10. i live on the west coast and yes i made a comment that it was ruined for me when i read the post. however, i still tuned in to GH and loved the build up that they had leading up until we saw Stavros face. i thought that these boards were for . people to post on with how they felt without being “called out” or put down. people who had it spoiled for them have every right to be disappointed that the cat was let out of the bag. as far as no one saying anything to TV Guide maybe DC should be flattered that apparently no one went to TV Guide to get their soap fix, they came to DC and that’s why they got the comments. these things become hard to read sometimes because they do get so negative and adversarial. i haven’t seen conflict like this on here since Melissa Reeves went to Chick-fil-a, but i will keep reading DC and still watching GH because it has been that good lately. both sides should calm down and ride the ride of where this huge developement will lead. that’s all folks!

Heck, this isn’t the first time, it was spoiled about a shocking return, if you don’t want to know don’t read it. Which with social media and other stuff,it would be hard so you probably would have to turn off your computer. You guys know this is a site, right, no one makes a big deal, when other spoilers are written. Come on, heck Frank was going to give everybody the evil eye if this had been spoiled. Since RKK was returning today, it was safe for it to come out. RKK looks great, I read an interview that he’s a pilot now, and has retired from acting, but when Frank and Ron approached him about bringing back Stavros, he couldn’t pass it up. BTW, he looks fantastic!! Can’t wait to see what happens.

It would have made more sense to bring Thaao Penghlis back as Victor Cassadine as he was one the original Cassadine brothers and they could’ve used all those wonderful 1981 flashbacks!! As far as I know his fate is uncertain (is he in prison or presumed dead?) At least I know from the Logan piece that the GH writers are very aware of Victor’s existence, so perhaps we may see him sooner than we think as part of the continuing 50th Anniversary celebrations.

Neither of you have to defend posting this information, even if you had chosen to post it, say yesterday, the purpose of this site to to get the scoops and get em’ out there first! If I had read this yesterday, I simply would have squealed w/ joy like a hooker passing her STD test! So, please don’t apologize! If people want to b*tch, buy ‘em some bitter cheese to go with their *whine and move along!

LOVED Brenda today. And we need Bobbie back on recurring at least. Log in to Reply rozzberry April 11, 2013 [quote=alstonboy4315]Robert Kelker Kelly is sex! Sex, I tell you…….. I wish he could do both GH and DAYS. DAYS could bring Bo Brady back now….I am sick of seeing Narcolepsy Doctor Daniel as the only “leading” man on this show. [/quote][/quote] Indeed he is ;). I’m quite envious of GH fans right now. I absolutely adored him as Sam on AW. I’d <3 to have him on Days too, although I must say my patience with Days is running out. Log in to Reply Yoryla April 11, 2013 It is ridiculous to blame DC for running this information. It’s a fresh, hot piece of news, and it is their prerogative to print it if they run across it. That is why this site exists in the first place. The point of “news” is not to print it two days later when everyone already knows about it, but when it is indeed brand new and fresh. Personally, I also came in here before watching the show, and did see the headline. But I just wiped it out of my mind, pretended like I had never seen it and enjoyed the show like crazy. It most certainly did not ruin anything for me. As many others have said, if you do not want to be spoiled, don’t go online and don’t go on Twitter. But if you happen to accidentally be spoiled, CERTAINLY don’t let it ruin your viewing pleasure. Log in to Reply Fashionista April 11, 2013 seriously? he looks to be 20 years younger then Laura, he could be Nic’s brother … even with the ‘grey’ bread … Log in to Reply Ravennite613 April 11, 2013 Praise the Lord Praise Allah Praise Moses SAM FOWLER is back on my TV set I have to admit I was not pleased at first to wander on to DC late yesterday and see that RKK was back but after that faded I was more impressed with the fact that this was kept a secret until the day of the show. That never happens anymore so BRAVO Cartini & Co. Log in to Reply mfarris70 April 11, 2013 I got to meet RKK years ago when he performed in a Shakespeare production at my university. Not only is he sex on a stick but he’s funny and very smart about the business, too. Hope he sticks around for a while! Log in to Reply mfarris70 April 11, 2013 I like the idea that Stavros could actually be Britta’s father, I was all in favor of that from the beginning. You might remember that Britt(le) said to Dr. O about her pregnancy “You did the same thing to my father and that didn’t work out” or something to that effect. So if this isn’t really Patrick’s child, is Britt not really a Faison? Log in to Reply TV Gord April 11, 2013 [quote=Scooter Smith]Jamey the reason no one bitched about it on TVGuide is that page is something people go to for news and tv listings. DC is a community, and we love you guys. So when you do something we think is boneheaded, we feel like we can say it to you and not be insulted or attacked.[/quote] You say you don’t want to be insulted or attacked…in the same breath that you call Jamey a bonehead. Nice double-standard. Regardless of how you see this site, it is every bit as much a news site at TV Guide, so they are essentially the same thing. Log in to Reply bobbyew April 11, 2013 Didn’t his cryogenically frozen body give out. Sex on Stilts though good to see him back. Log in to Reply bobbyew April 11, 2013 Jamey, Jillian all I have to say is, thank you. This site is the best site I have ever had the pleasure to be apart of. It is Perez Hilton for soaps. Without your contribution to the internet World. The way you guys present it to us is great. We would have to wait for crappy sites to put out this information or wait for Soaps in Depth. And they don’t get to the nitty gritty like ya’ll do. So thankyou. To all ya’ll who were upset don’t read this site till the evening or the next day if you don’t want to know about yo soaps. Log in to Reply Cornfed April 11, 2013 I’m with Alstonboy and several others here. DON’T READ THE SOAP BOARDS AND THEN VENT YOUR FAUX OUTRAGE upon reading spoilers. If i’m behind on GH on my dvr, common sense dictates i not read Perkie’s thread or any comments until i’m caught up… That being said, this was a HUGE SHOCKER, as by all accounts RKK had *retired* from acting and was now supposedly an aviation mechanic in MA or somewhere here in the East. Imo he’s a tad bit too young for the role, and i would’ve preferred seeing Stephen Nicols back as Stefan (tho Stefan wasn’t ever EVIL enough to kidnap Lulu or any of Laura’s kids), but other than that this is really good. RKK is probably 15 years younger than Luke, so not exactly a peer, but closer to Genie in age. Let the games begin! Bonus: nice sets on Cassadine Island, and i LOVE seeing Scotty and Bobbie every day. Vanessa played Brenda a bit too demurely imo yesterday, but overall really enjoying GH these days! Edit: A friend reminded me RKK played this role previously, so it’s all good! I do recall that now… Log in to Reply Scooter Smith April 11, 2013 I did not call Jamey a bonehead. I said that I thought putting the spoiler in the headline was a boneheaded idea. BIG Difference. Its the same thing when your little brother or sister does something you think “Oh my God, how could you have been so braindead to do that” but you don’t think they are a stupid person, just that one thing. I like Jamey, alot. He is one of my favorite bloggers of any subject. And I am not upset about the spoiler being posted on the site. Just that the huge shocking spoiler was right in the headline, so unless you had completely turned off any connection to any social media and email, you would see the spoiler without trying. I love getting spoilers from DC, but if its happening today, I usually will say “You know what, I think I will be surprised” and then let the suspense build and try to figure out what is going to happen before it happens. But I was checking my email boxes and there was a post that said “RKK brings Stavros back from the dead”. I didn’t have a chance to skip over it, it was RIGHT THERE. All I am asking is try and keep the ACTUAL spoiler out of the headlines.

Your main goal on most of these posts is to stir shit up. Silly me for trying to clarify my point like a rational adult. Log in to Reply TV Gord April 12, 2013 Right. It couldn’t be that I believe what I write. Keep telling yourself that. Log in to Reply westvirginiafan April 12, 2013 All the people who are complaining about having the surprise spoiled are kidding right? If you live on the west coast, or if you tape your show and watch it later on there is a real simple solution–don’t go to internet sites that have information on soaps until after you have watched your show. Their job is to get people the news and provide a forum for people to discuss soaps. You obviously enjoy what they do or you wouldn’t check out their sites–you can’t expect them to not post a scoop (particularly after it has already happened) because of your schedules Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
