Do not toy with us General Hospital! For years Quartermaine family fans have begged and pleaded for the return of the Quartermaine heir to the family fold. Today, Carly (Laura Wright) returned to the Quartermaine mansion, in need of–and asking for–help. Later–in one of those rare moments–the Quartermaine's prodigal son, Jason (Steve Burton), stopped by and Edward (John Ingle) asked him to return too.
The Quartermaines have been one of my favorite ABC soap families, since the day I started watching soaps. Unfortunately, over the past few years, we watched as Emily, Alan, Justice and AJ were killed off. Ned, Dillon and Brook Lynn were written off. Meanwhile, the Quartermaine and Spencer families merged–thanks to Luke's marriage to Tracy–while Edward and Monica were seen less and less.
Over the last few months, the Quartermaines have seemed to make a comeback, even if it is an illusion. I can't believe I'm saying this, but the one good thing about the Ethan and Luke storyline has been how much Tracy has been onscreen. At the same time, Michael (Drew Garrett) coming out of his coma and Rebecca's connection to Emily have provided Edward and Monica with more airtime. As Carly seeks the Quartermaine family's help, is it too much to hope that if Michael returns to the Quartermaine mansion, the family can be saved?
