GH Spoilers: Michael Easton Returns! Will He Rush to Kiki’s Side?

KikishotEarlier this month, General Hospital spoilers revealed, and GH Executives confirmed the return of fan favorite actor, Michael Easton. However, although fans really love Silas Clay, father of Kiki Jerome, GH rumors have been swirling, claiming that Easton may not return as Silas CLay, but as another character.

In regard to the recent tragedy with Kiki, it’s highly possible that Easton will make his return debut during this story line. Kiki (Hayley Erin) was shot on Pier 54 as she was trying to get Morgan to come to his senses and leave the scene of an arms deal that was supposed to go down on his dad, Sonny’s territory.

What are your thoughts on Michael Easton’s return? Will he come back as Kiki’s dad Silas, and rush to her aid in her time of need? Or will he return as possibly his strange brother Stephen? He could be someone else entirely…

Steve Burton and Billy Miller Drama Continues

General Hospital and The Young and the Restless fans have been in a tizzy since seeing the recent articles circling, regarding Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott Y&R, currently Jason Morgan GH), and Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan GH, currently Dylan McAvoy Y&R).

General Hospital rumors spread like wild fire, but when Steve Burton and Billy Miller are involved, they spread like wild fire on speed. We use the term “rumors” heavily in this particular situation. It’s apparent that the topic of Jason Morgan and Billy Abbot is a sizzling and sensitive subject for General Hospital and Y&R fans… and it’s even more obvious that many fan sites and news pages tend to embellish the truth when it comes to what is actually going on with the actor swapping, feuding, and contract statuses involving these actors and their corresponding daytime dramas.

The latest rumor circulating social media claims that Billy Miller is leaving General Hospital and going back to Y&R to reprise his role as Billy Abbot. These rumors have even gone as far as claiming that Steve Burton will be leaving his role as Dylan McAvoy on Y&R, and returning to GH as Jason Morgan. Some sites even claim that this news has been CONFIRMED in their title, yet there is absolutely no source to back up these claims.

General Hospital Blog would like to set this huge rumor straight, hopefully being able to clear things up for fans once and for all. The RUMORS that Billy Miller is leaving GH is JUST a RUMOR. As for Steve Burton leaving Y&R to return to GH as Jason Morgan, that alleged confirmation is also falsified.

Billy Miller is still under contract with General Hospital, as is Steve Burton with The Young and the Restless. Please keep checking back with us to find out more about the never ending drama. Let us know what you think regarding this Billy Miller/Steve Burton frenzy, leave your comments below. Please do daytime fans a service, and share this article to clear the air and inform them that the claims regarding these two actors are false.

Which One of These 90’s Fan Favorites is Headed to Port Charles?

There have been a lot of fans asking about one particular character that has been a fan favorite since the 90s. Social media sites are flooded with fans assuming that the return of one of their favorite characters is now underway.

General Hospital in the 90s was one of the greatest times in the show’s history. There was Robin and Stone, Jason, AJ, Karen and Jagger, Sonny and Brenda, Lily, Miguel, and more. It was an exciting time for the youth because a lot of the main focus were on the high school aged teens like Brenda, Karen, Robin, Stone, and Jason.

So which fan favorite of the 90s is said to be making a comeback?

Now there hasn’t been any confirmation from ABC or the Executives over at General Hospital, but there has been a lot of talk that Vanessa Marcil will be headed back to Port Charles this Summer to reprise her role as the beautiful Brenda Barrett.

Fans are already speculating and romanticizing a story for their beloved Brenda. Many want her to claim her man (Sonny), while teaming up with Carly to take Ava down. Now wouldn’t that be interesting?! Carly and Brenda on the same side! Others want Jax to make a come back as well.  With all the talk of Fluke being Harlan Barrett, fans have also theorized that Brenda will make her comeback when the identity of Fluke is revealed. If you are ready for Brenda to return to Port Charles, comment below with your perfect scenario story line involving Brenda!

Bradford Anderson Returning to General Hospital Full Time?

Last week General Hospital brought back one of the fan’s most favorite characters, Damien Spinelli and his counterpart Ellie Trout (Emily Wilson). Good friend Carly really needed Spinelli’s help to solve the mystery that involved Ava, AJ, and Sonny. Spinelli’s tech support never falls short when his friends are in need.

Spinelli and Ellie left Port Charles to move to Portland Oregon to chase Ellie’s dream job, running her own lab. However, they didn’t move to Portland alone. Since Spinelli was granted custody of baby Georgie, his and Maxie’s baby girl, the three of them said goodbye to their loved ones in Port Charles and started a new life. The court had ordered that Maxie be reevaluated in 6 months, with the potential of getting custody of her daughter. Now that those 6 months are up, we may be seeing a lot more of Spinelli.

With the Maxie/Georgie custody story line in the works, Spinelli may just have to be front and center for again for a while. Not only does the story seem to be leading towards a Spinelli return, but the actor himself has divulged his thoughts on the idea. Ina  recent interview for Soaps in Depth, actor Bradford Anderson made it clear that we would want nothing more than for his character of 8 years Damien Spinelli, to return to the GH canvas. Bradford Anderson told Soaps in Depth about the arrangement that he has with the show, “I think [what just aired] was to establish Spinelli and Ellie in the reality of living in Portland and keeping us on the canvas [in some way]. I think that’s nice! When I left, they very clearly said there was an open door. So by establishing us where we are and having people still use Spinelli for things, that means they can call me any time.”

Fans have been giving positive feedback ever since Spinelli and Ellie were brought back to the screen last week. If you would like to see Bradford Anderson/Damien Spinelli return to General Hospital full time, please let us know by commenting below and sharing this post.

A New Man for Sabrina! Just in Time for Robin’s Return

This may be the answer to the fan’s questions regarding what will happen with Patrick’s love life when Robin returns. Here’s the scoop, Soap Opera Digest just revealed that General Hospital has hired a new actor to portray a man from Sabrina’s past that will drive a wedge between her and Patrick. Word out on the street is he is a trouble maker.

Assuming that this newcomer, Carlos, played by Jeffrey Vincent Parise, will want to be romantically involved with Sabrina, this could be the solution to the Robin, Patrick, Sabrina triangle. Fans have been waiting and waiting for the return of Robin Scorpio Drake, all the while some fans have grown to love Patrick with Sabrina. If Carlos (from Sabrina’s past) is out to win her heart, Patrick and Robin will have an open opportunity to pick up where they left off as husband and wife and parents to Emma.
