Fans have been up and down in regard to this news, some reluctant to embrace change, and others very excited to see what fresh writing will bring for their favorite General Hospital Characters.

According to the latest addition of Soap Opera Digest, Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman reveal their plans for Genie Francis’ return to General Hospital.

General Hospital Blog previously reported that Genie Francis will be back to the canvas this coming Fall. Francis mentioned that she is hopeful for her character Laura, that there will be much in store for her when she returns to Port Charles.

Liz and Jake’s Wedding Disaster

LiasonproposeOne of the most controversial fan base wars has just taken the drama to an entirely new level. The Liason vs. JaSam wars date back to practically a decade, and it doesn’t look like there will be an end to all the chaos any time soon. General Hospital fans have been waiting for what seems like forever for the big Jason Morgan reveal. Ever since Billy Miller took over the role of Jason Morgan, and stepped into Steve Burton’s shoes, true Jason and Sam fans have been waiting (im)patiently for their great love to be reunited. All the while, Elizabeth and Jason fans have been in their glory during the current story line involving the love between Jake Doe (Jason) and Liz.

We all know that Elizabeth and Nikolas are keeping an enormous secret from the rest of Port Charles. Aside from Laura and Lucky Spencer, they have told no one of Jake’s true identity. Helena knows that Jake is really Jason because she is the reason Jason “died” in the first place. Hayden Barnes is well aware of Jake’s true identity, but since she is having trouble with her memory after waking up from a coma, the threat she poses has been put on the back burner. Nikolas however, isn’t taking any chances, and he has proposed to Hayden, that she live at Wyndemere.

This story line just crossed a new level of drama, as Jake asked Elizabeth to marry him. Unsure of what to do, Elizabeth turned to God for a sign. Although she knows Jake really is married to Sam, and Sam walked into the chapel as Liz was asking for a sign from above, she still, despite everything she knows about Jake and his loved ones, told him yes to marriage.

In General Hospital spoilers and news, recently GH’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati was let go and replaced by two co-writers, Jean Passanante and Shelly Altman. Currently, the show is still airing episodes written by Carlivati, but soon enough, that will all change.┬áIt goes without saying that this wedding will ultimately end in disaster, if Liz and Jake even make it to the altar. General Hospital rumors have been speculating, that the big Jason reveal is going to happen sooner rather than later. The current changes with the GH writing team gives fans hope that this story will be moving along more quickly now, and that Jake will soon find out he is Jason Morgan. More importantly, Sam and Jason will be reunited as husband and wife. For the time being, Liason fans are enjoying the ride, however, Jason and Sam will inevitably be reunited. That will make for one disastrous wedding indeed.

How will it all go down? Give us your thoughts and theories revolving around Liz and Jake’s demise, in preparation for the JaSam reunion. Will they make it down the aisle before Sam finds out that Jason is alive, and Elizabeth is marrying her husband and the father of her son, Danny?

Rebecca Budig Returns to GH with a Contract

RebeccaBudigThe ABC soap vet and All My Children alum, Rebecca Budig, joined the cast of General Hospital back in March of this year. She was brought on as her character was part of the Jason Morgan/Jake Doe story line. As of right now, in Port Charles, Hayden Barnes, played by Budig, holds the key to Jason’s true identity.

Sure, other people are aware that Jake Doe (Billy Miller) is actually Jason. Those people include, Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher), Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst), Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson), and Laura Spencer (Genie Francis). Well since Nikolas is the original person to harbor this secret and let Liz in on it because she is in love with Jake/Jason, and since Nik is now acting like a full blown Cassadine, there’s no chance of him or Liz coming clean. Nikolas told Lucky about this so that Lucky could have peace of mind if he decided to leave town. Knowing that Jason Morgan was caring for his children, Lucky felt it was right for him to leave and let Liz be happy. Therefore, Lucky has skipped town, and won’t be back to tell for the foreseeable future. Laura Spencer overheard a conversation Nikolas was having that she obviously was never meant to hear. Although she doesn’t agree with what Nikolas and Liz are doing, she feels that it isn’t her place to reveal the truth and expose their lies.

This leaves Hayden Barnes. Hayden is the woman that Nikolas out a hit out on in order to keep her quiet. Recently, Patrick has been receiving reports of her condition, that she is waking up.

General Hospital spoilers have revealed that Rebecca Budig has already started taping for GH, and her character will return this Fall. According to Soap Opera Digest, Budig has signed a contract with General Hospital and is here to stay… well at least she’s here until her contract is up.

General Hospital Blog will keep fans updated on any news related to Rebecca’s status with GH.
