General Hospital Ins and Outs and Summer Recast!

There will be a lot of characters walking in and out of Port Charles this Summer on General Hospital. General Hospital Blog has previously reported that Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Carlos Rivera) is OUT, and it doesn’t look like he will be returning. Sean Blakemore is also on his way out at GH as Sonny’s enforcer, Shawn Butler. In the midst of his legal troubles, and baby mama drama with Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), Shawn will be leaving Port Charles, will he take his son TJ with him?

Finola Hughes will be off for the Summer as Anna Devane will leave Port Charles since the death of Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan). Ian Buchanan has been out at GH since early May.

Lisa LoCicero will be on maternity leave for the majority of this Summer. Olivia and Ned will exit PC, as Wally Kurth has landed a role on Days of Our Lives.

Tony Geary is set to return to GH this Summer so that Luke Spencer can say goodbye to his loved ones in Port Charles. Geary is retiring for good, but we have good news that has confirmed Genie Francis will return as Laura Spencer for Geary’s exit. GH rumors have speculated that more GH alum will be returning to the canvas for Luke’s big goodbye. Jonathan Jackson who has played Lucky Spencer on GH, is currently on ABC’s Nashville. While Nashville is on Summer hiatus, it is highly possible that we will see Lucky return to Port Charles to see his dad, Luke, off.

General Hospital rumors have teased with one particular possibility for quite a while. Fans have been up in arms when it comes to Robin Scorpio Drake. Some want her back, some want her to stay gone, and others are willing to accept a recast. Although a recast of a fan favorite has been done in the past (Billy Miller taking Stave Burton’s place as Jason Morgan), it’s highly unlikely that Kimberly McCullough, who originated the character Robin will be recast. McCullough’s status with General Hospital remains unknown. However, there are a couple other possibilities for a Summer recast. Some claim that bringing Liz Webber’s sister, Sarah back to Port Charles is in the works, and since ABC’s fan February contest, social media has been buzzing that Serena Baldwin will make a return.

General Hospital Chaos! Characters Acting Out Of Character

If you have been watching General Hospital lately, the same things have been running through the minds of fans across the board. It seems as the something has been off with the residents of Port Charles. Many of the people, who have distinct personality traits and almost predictable behaviors have been acting out of character recently. Or have they?

Let’s start with Elizabeth. The sweet, do-gooder, Nurse Webber has crossed a line with fans (and haters) that she may never be able to come back from. Liz has just lied about the biggest story in Port Charles. So that Liz can have Jason Morgan all to herself, she is concealing the information she knows about his true identity. She is lying to keep a man for herself, when he has a wife and son right under his nose. This seems very extreme and out of character, but at the same time, is it, really? Liz has lied in the past to get what she wants, especially when it comes to a man. She has even lied about the paternity of her child, making Lucky believe Jake was his for so long, knowing that Jason was his father. And that was just one example. She and Sam have always had a battle over Jason Morgan, a battle that Sam won. Now Elizabeth feels that it’s her turn for happiness, and she doesn’t care that she is leaving Sam and Danny without a husband and father.

Anna just shot and killed Carlos in cold blood (or so they say). Her actions were not out of self defense, but out of revenge. Anna was hurting, and she killed the man who killed the love of her life, Duke Lavery. Anna is a cop, she is a special agent, a mother, and grandmother. It’s easy to see her as someone who wouldn’t just shoot a man point blank, but in actuality, Anna has done more than some fans realize. When is came to Faison, she locked him in Wyndemere without any expectation that he could escape. She has protected those she loves and is never afraid to use force. She loved Duke so much that she felt his death had to be avenged, which led her to kill Carlos Rivera on Pier 54.

Then there is Nikolas. The Cassadine outcast. The one member of the Cassadine family who isn’t violent or ruthless. Nik suddenly made a move that shocked General Hospital fans. When it was revealed that Nikolas put out the hit on Hayden Barnes, we couldn’t believe that the one sane Cassadine had become so completely detached. HOwever, we have always known that Nik would go to extreme lengths to protect those he loves and those in which he is loyal. Elizabeth obviously falls into that category. As Nik explained to Valerie, he was protecting Elizabeth from Hayden’s truth. Although everyone knows that Liz is wrong for keeping this secret about Jake/Jason, Nik will still protect her at all costs.

As we see some of these characters shock us with their recent behaviors, we wonder why all of a sudden are they making these bold moves? Perhaps if we look at their past, we can see that they have had it in them all along.

General Hospital Spoilers: Ian Buchanan OUT, But Will Duke Lavery Die?

Previously, General Hospital Blog reported that long time GH vet, Ian Buchanan is leaving General Hospital. Ian Buchanan made the annoucement to fans through social media. GH fans, especially fans od Duke and Anna are saddened by the news of his departure.

General Hospital spoilers reveal that during the Nurses Ball, a mob war is going to break out, and Duke is caught in the crossfire. It has been rumored that this mob hit is an attempted hit, but also that Sonny wonders who is responsible for the death of his friend and business man. With that information, GH rumors have surfaced, claiming that the “attempted” mob hit will be Duke’s and everyone will think he has died. We can hope right?

As the Nurses Ball comes to a close, and the drama is about to go down with the Jerome and Corinthos organizations, what do you think will happen to Duke Lavery?

General Hospital spoilers and rumors have been weighing heavily on one particular rumor. It has been said that Ian Buchanan, (Duke Lavery) is leaving General Hospital. It started with a tweet by TV Guide’s Michael Logan, and fans immediately reacted to the “news.”
