The last time General Hospital viewers saw Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) in Port Charles, the lovable WBS agent/singer was helping Felicia (Kristina Wagner) as their daughter Maxie (then played by Robyn Richards) battled Kawasaki syndrome. Eighteen years later, Wagner has returned home to the show that made him a household name. Access Hollywood was on the GH set to get the details on Frisco's return. Wagner revealed:
When I talked to Frank [Valentini], the [executive] producer, and we decided that Frisco would come back it’s like, ‘Is he coming back [with the] ‘out of the Turkish prison look,’ with a little gruffy beard and Harrison Ford in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ or, is going to be more Michael Douglas ‘Wall Street’? So he said, ‘Let’s make it Turkish prison.’ So, I’ve cleaned up since I’ve been back.

Jack Wagner on Possible General Hospital 50th Anniversary Return: “They Have Called, But There's Nothing in Ink”By Luke Kerr on January 07, 2013
As General Hospital begins to ramp for its 50th Anniversary celebration this spring, we’re beginning to get a hint of the possible stars Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati are exploring for return visits to Port Charles. In an interview with The Huffington Post, Jack Wagner discusses the likelihood of a reunion between his character Frisco and Kristina Wagner’s Felicia.
At the risk of bringing up the soap hype, is there any chance you would return to "General Hospital"?
That 50th anniversary I think is coming up, right? But I have nothing to say about it. They have called, but there's nothing in ink or anything like that. I know it would be pretty special to work with Kristina, my ex-wife, again so we'll see what happens. I know it's around the corner here and if I go back, it would only be for a very short story arc. But I might do it just to honor that show and what it's meant to my career and the fans and to Kristina's career.
Could soap icon Jack Wagner return to General Hospital after all? ABC Soaps In Depth spoke with the actor after he burned up the dance floor on Dancing With The Stars Monday night.
I'm prohibited from doing anything but dancing with [Anna] right now at all. Except maybe for going to the grocery store and feeding my kids!" And what about his rumored return to GH? "No Port Charles updates," he shared. "I'm actually under contract to ABC so if [GH] wants to call then they can call."
Here's hoping Mickey Mouse and the Soap Gods make this happen!

Tweeted Hinsey:
Hey GH fans! They're clearing the decks for Kristina Wagner. Sssshhh... you heard it here first. #soapsstillmatter
On February 24th, General Hospital is revisiting one of its most memorable and literally heart breaking storylines ever penned. Maxie's dream will ask the question how life in Port Charles would have turned out if it had been Maxie Jones (then portrayed by Robyn Richards) who died that fateful day rather than her cousin Barbara Jean (BJ). Above is a clip of that great storyline that got Frisco's (Jack Wagner) butt back in PC at his daughter's side. More clips after the jump. READ MORE
