    Another Quartermaine returns in ghost form, ground breaking concept. Is this what Frank and Ron meant when they said they were rebuilding the Quartermaine family? Ghosts? Let me know when something worthwhile is written.

    Ahhh. I miss Liz and Emily’s BFF relationship, and it would make sure that Niz never saw the light of day!

    Franco and Kiki were the ONLY two Q’s that mattered for RC/FV, RME.

    Yes!! It should be Emily at that clinic NOT Jason.

    It would be so good if Victor stole Emily that night she “died” and is using her right now to work experiments. She is a doctor.

    I wonder if she will be appearing AJ to let him know Ava is lying. Maybe her and Connie are ghost BFFs.

    Or she could appear to Nikolas telling him Bugs is lying to him and using him.

    I want to see her appear to her BFF Liz. Liz needs a friend right now since right now all Liz is doing is babysitting RC’s pets.

    Natalia Livingston should return to GH alive and well. Her romance with Nicholas was one of the greatest love stories on daytime. Their chemistry leapt off the screen. If Daytime Confidential rates Nicholas and Brit as a “hot” couple, it’s because of Tyler Christopher, who is magnificent. Emily and Nicholas together again is just the shot in the arm that GH needs right now. That, and of course, recasting the role of Jason with someone spectacular, like Billy Miller!

    I dont mind this because Emily and Alan should have never been killed in the first place. If anything place more emphasis on the ghost of Emily because having her written off and then that terrible Rebecca Shaw stuff, was wrong on so many levels.

    the ghost thing is done to death. I also think this clinic thing is a bad idea. Characters are dead, some shouldn’t be but they are so leave them dead. And stop with the ghost, its cheap story telling.

    I agree with some of the posters above; the ghost thing is lame and done to death. At this point with the Quartermaines I feel like seeing the dead ones as ghosts for 5 seconds is a cruel joke. For me seeing ghost-Alan especially really pours salt in the wound because I feel like he NEVER should have been killed off. And while Natalia Livingston was not my favorite, the Emily character never should have been killed off either.

    I know the return from the dead stuff has been way overdone too but TPTB ruined GH for me when they killed off Alan, Emily, and Justus (most of all Alan)so I would accept anything short of them being abducted by aliens if it meant they were alive and brought back.

    You know I’m thankful for the good stuff FranknRon have done for the show but I still don’t understand their priorities regarding the returns. Had it been me my first order of business would have been to bring back Laura and Bobbie, signing them to multi-year contracts followed by getting work on undoing the damage done to the Quartermaines by writing a big old return from the dead story for the dead Quartermaines in order of importance: Alan, AJ, Justus and Emily. I feel like having characters like Anna, Duke, Heather, Lucy, Kevin, Scott and Felicia back has been great but the importance of having them around pales in comparison to having Alan, Laura and Bobbie back in main roles.

    And don’t get me started on the fact that Franco, Kiki and Silas (and their actors, along with Felix and Sabrina) have gotten the royal treatment while characters important to the shows core families are nowhere to be found. Ridiculous! At least AJ, Bobbie and Nikolas are on screen right now so I will try and stay positive :)

    I wish Emily was at the clinic instead of Jason as well. Some of the deaths which should have never happened were Alan’s, Emily’s, Justus’ and Georgie’s. All the deaths were just ratings grabbers by the previous regime and all were unnecessary and hurt the heart of the show and future storyline potential. I wish somehow all these folks are at the clinic waiting to be sprung back to life, again just not Jason. Or if it is Jason let it be Jason Quartermaine and not Jason Morgan.

    I am so thankful however for the current regime at GH. I feel they are doing great at bringing heart and depth back to the show. With the old regime I fast forwarded through most of the show. Now I never fast forward except through the commericals.

    please bring emily back from the dead!!! she’s my favorite character….. she died on spoon island, helena could have faked her death and brainwashed her into believe she was rebecca, i don’t care how you do it but BRING HER BACK! i miss her…….

    I know some writers and viewers think that returns from the dead are overrated or are too unrealistic to write but come on now Jason and Helena are on ice somewhere I think the writers could swing Emily and even Alan not being dead actually they could probably fix Justus up to. The problem is they aren’t priority, the writers think having AJ, Michael and Tracy around on occasion is enough Q presence and don’t even get me started on the lack of Monica. I would MUCH rather see Emily running around than Kiki or Sabrina hell Sabrina has many of Emily’s qualities they could just be switched. When you look at the Q family and that empty mansion its just a damn shame that nobody really cares that much to fill it……Skye could always be brought back with an aged daughter this stuff isn’t rocket science.

    @Katiebugs9624 I don’t want Helena, Jason, Stavros, Alan, Georgie, Emily or anyone brought back. GH did so many since RC took over its a joke. It also hurts the impact of deaths on show. GH shouldn’t have killed all these characters but they did so they need to stay dead. Especially with all the back from the dead stories we have gotten. GH has more dead people then the walking dead.

    Also if they want more Qs that isn’t hard there are alive ones. Ned, Brooklyn, Dillion, Maya, TJ could easily be Keesha and AJ’s child.

    Ned is on Days of our lives now, Dillion would need to be recast, nobody cares about Maya and TJ (sorry but its true)

    Welcome to the wonderful world of soaps where people are brought back from the dead on a daily basis thankfully its not like reality.

    If they are going to bring people back from the dead (and they are constantly) I’d rather it be legacy characters

    Ned is not on contract with Days, they could offer him one see TR and Y&R. They could also RECAST!! Novel thought. I know a lot of people that care about TJ and Maya. You DON’T speak for all fans. Why couldn’t they recast Dillion and Brook? THey are viable characters who could drive story, which really what story is ALan driving, and I love Alan but honestly?

    I have been watching soaps for a long time no need for you to be rude because I don’t want to disrespect the history of a soap by rewriting history and bringing back dead people we saw dead WITH BODIES! I’d rather they focus on the missing live characters and drive stories from that.

    GH at its best was during the 90s and was highly cemented in realism, and deep human stories. Death’s weren’t done without consequence they meant something its one of the reasons they are still talked about today as GH’s best stories.

    BTW I see most people don’t want back from the dead stories, they don’t want more cast they want stories written for the cast they have.

    I would rather see Brooklynn, Maya or even Kiki turned back into a Q before I would want to see the return of that vacuous bore Emily. The worst thing Alan and Monica ever did in their lives was adopting her. She was the absolute worst.

    I disagree with this, because even though there have been a lot of “backs from the dead”, it doesn’t matter because these people should have never been killed in the first place and were killed out of all the wrong reasons, not to mention that the people who were responsible for those killings are long gone. These people are incredibly valuable and anyone of them being brought back could cause enormous buzz for the show and get some people who left throughout the horrible travesty that were the Guza years to tune back in. To put in other words, the power and importance of these characters is more valuable to the show than counting how many backs from the dead there have been.

    It’s not the same as the deaths in the 90’s that were actually done well and meant something, like BJ, Stone or Lily Rivera. That is why *those* deaths are something that should not be undone.

    I wouldn’t mind if every bad deed that the show made during the JFP/Fruza era would be undone and/or never be talked about again.

    Ok but there are people that believe BJ should never have been killed, or how about the 3 people that think Lily shouldn’t have been. Just because it was a mistake doesn’t mean its right to undo that history. If RC truly respects GH history like he claims then he needs to write within the bounds of that history. Also with all these people you have to ask could they drive story? I mean really what story is Alan going to drive? He’d be like Monica so why undo that history and impact of his stupidly done death for him to pop in on occasion. RC has proven he has no interest in the Qs.

    I hated a lot of what Guza did, but it doesn’t change he did it and we have to acknowledge that history as much as we have to acknowledge the good parts of GH history.

    There are plenty of not dead legacy core family members out there that could be added. Ned, Dillion, Brooklyn, Tom Hardy Sr, Tom Hardy Jr, SWL, heck how about laura (whom I hate but she isn’t’ dead). They could have offered TR a contract, they could have taken KMc up on her offer to stay past her contract.

    They chose not too. They disrespect cannon write people out of character and then undo deaths because they wan to use that character for a minute like AJ. No sorry frankly after how OOC, against history RC wrote Brenda, Jax, Frisco (he’d never have broken Brit’s leg), Robin. No they are better off dead.

    THANK YOU TSJ! :beer: Livingston has got to be one of THE most annoying actresses to ever appear on GH, ugh. I have ZERO interest in this. Can this show get any worse?

    Now you have to say Amber was amazing. I LOVED her Emily. NT was an awful actress but she actually did have chemistry with the people she was suppose to Liz and Nik. I think she only had chemistry with TC because she was attracted to him IRL and they got together because after NL and TC broke up, that chemistry was GONE.

    Like others have said, there is no need for bringing anyone back from the dead. Last time they showed Alan, the actor looked very sickly.

    We have Ned (get him on contract!!)Dillon (can easily be recast), Maya (a better actress can bring life to this role), Brooklyn (can be recast), Maya’s mother who was Justus’ sister, Edward’s other son Jimmy Lee Holt may have some kids somewhere pissed they were screwed out of an inheritance. Tracy has a whole family out there than needs to be in that Quatermaine mansion. Maybe Monica’s long lost daughter Dawn had a kid somewhere.

    [quote=TV Gord]I wonder how Stuart Damon is. He didn’t look well the last time he was on.[/quote]

    I was wondering the same thing. I remember how James Mitchell looked as Palmer Cortlandt on AMC towards the end. Or John Ingle during the poisoned water storyline on GH. Both seemed to have trouble speaking. I hope Mr. Damon is well.

    “I would rather see Brooklynn, Maya or even Kiki turned back into a Q before I would want to see the return of that vacuous bore Emily.”

    THANK YOU. Emily Quartermaine is the worst character EVER (as played by Natalia Livingston, whose acting style might be described as “half-assed whispering and pouting.”)

    KEEP. HER. DEAD.

    I would bring back Emily, Alan etc. Even though you can make a good argument about bringing people back from the dead, they shouldnt have died in the first place. Remember when Robin “died” a few yrs. ago in the lab? Why did she have to die? If anything Ron and Frank are trying to right the wrongs previous regimes (Guza, Wolf) made and if that means coming back from the dead, why not?
