157 May 13th, 2013 Easton, Alderson & Howarth Make Their GH Return! Kiki And The Mystery Man Promo Unveiled!

Courtesy/ABC

At the end of Monday’s episode of General Hospital, fans finally saw the first sightings of the new roles that will be inhabited by Michael Easton, Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson!

Some things to take note of:  all three characters were first seen in New York City not Port Charles!

SPOILER ALERT: If you do not want to know how they first showed up on screen, do not read any further!

Michael Easton’s character came face-to-face with Sam at the hospital she was searching for Morgan in.   Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) went to the penthouse apartment that Morgan was presumabably at, and this time found Kristen Alderson with darker hair, the one who answered the door to him!  Finally, Roger Howarth’s character appeared backstage in the green room of The Chew, where it appears The Chew hosts and Elizabeth have been poisoned by the Quartermaine condiments! Is Roger Howarth’s (with blonde tinged hair) mystery man behind the poisoning?

In addition, SOAPnet/ABC has released this week’s promo heralding in the character of “Kiki” played by Alderson and that Howarth’s character “will blindside the entire town”.  Watch the promo below!  Then let us know, what you think is going on with the new characters?  Who are they really?  Is Alderson really “Kiki”?  Are you intrigued?  Are you “over it”?  Share your thoughts!

    So is the Todd lookalike really Franco back from the dead wit a new face job? I mean, I don’t get his interest in bringing down the Quartermaines… LOL Maybe he just DOESN’T like relish???

    J_G replied

    Ooops just noticed that Roger Howarth’s new face has NO scar. Gotta be Franco. Look out Quartermaines!!!!!!!

    Well I think Kiki could be Franko’s daughter. Maybe Todd’s character is Franko too.
    As for Michael Easton’s character, I have no idea! ;)

    Why do I not remember Mark? I was actually hoping Michael would come back as Caleb. He is, after all, alive.

    Donna replied

    Caleb doesn’t have a brother!

    Mackenzie replied

    Caleb doesn’t have a brother, but Stephen Clay does & Michael Easton’s character is Stephen Clay’s brother.

    Totally agree. i saw a photo of Kristen with awesome makeup and interesting clothes and some kind of usual scarf. I thought it was for the character. She looked more different than Starr than she did on the show today. They should have made KA and ME look more diifferent.

    RH and ME will rock GH, they are great no matter who they play..
    I am sure FV and RC will give them both great characters that fit their acting talents, It will be a good 3 weeks, or more before they will fit in.
    As for KA, she will be for the first time in her life out of her safety zone of OLTL character Starr..
    So, I will give a lot of space to KA to develop and I hope she does well on her first outing as someone other than her life long Starr character, it must be frightening for her, in more than one way.. I will support her..
    I am looking forward to the 3 to bring it to GH and ALL the characters together will knock it out of the park..

    Liked KA’s darker hair; hate RH’s lighter hair. Can’t they come up with something else? And the hair cut accentuates his ears sticking out. What a horrible thing to do to him.

    I thought the same thing about his ears :-/

    rebecca replied

    his ears have always sticked out…that’s why I loved his look in the early days of OLTL…when he rocked that long hair. however, I actually think he looks great with his new blond locks…now if he could grow them long again…

    Tonya replied

    I think Roger Howarth looks amazing with the blonde hair..I just wish I knew who the HELL he is!!! Lol. Today he says he wants to reintroduce himself to everyone..I am sitting on the edge of my seat. Thanks General Hospital!!!

    Jessie replied

    Tonya, I TOTALLY agree with you!! I LOVE the blond hair and RH is an excellent actor anyway!! I am SO excited to see what the storyline is and how they work in as Port Charles members! RH is for SURE the “REAL Franco” and the “Psycho Franco” was a fake!!

    haha…his ears have always “stuck” out…not sticked! LOL.

    I’m over it. Too much hoopla about 3 “stars” who we could have gotten along without. Now they’ve sora’d Morgan and lost the 7 year age gap between him and his brother and completely changed his personality so that they can work in Kiki. I’m not happy.

    And it’s a little difficult to think of these 3 people as other characters when it’s been very little time since we last saw them and there’s been very little change of appearance.

    Lin replied

    Totally agree with everything you said. Do not like that Morgan looks almost as old or maybe even the same age as Michael. Agree with what you said about the “new” characters.

    matthew replied

    I think they should have moved on from the 3 one lifers as well. Its ridiculous to have all of them walking around as new characters at the same time and especially as you said bj, with such a short amount of time that has passed since their departures. It’s hard enough to accept one actor that returns even after a substantial amount of time in a different role than the one they originally portrayed so these three should have been cut loose no question. The money spent on these actors contacts could have served a much better purpose toward bringing back more GH favorites such as Sarah Brownand a long term Vanessa Marcil return. Bring back Stephen Nichols or Rena Sofer. These 3 transplants are a waste of resources especially under the circumstances!

    These 3 people are ACTORS!!! I know that I will be able to see them as new characters. Because they all are AMAZING!!! Give them a chance for Pete’s sake!!! And Sam looked beautiful today. I want her beauty supplies, lol.

    WOW &OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!! Great promo ! KIKI Or should we say Aka Lauren Frank!!!!!!!!!! And as for Roger And his new roll and Poisoning the Q”s He has to be the New Franko!!! Nobody else would do it… And as for Micheal I have a funny his new roll is Calbe ! remember Sam felt like someone was watching her at the church, and when the vampier story was on for a short time and when they thought it was Steven clay was dead?! And when Lucy saw what she thought was a dead Steven Clay and asked where the ring was and the dude say he didn’t have a ring on!!!!!!! But he put it back on him and he jumped right off the table and walked away!!! i feel like he is going to play Calbe But pose as someone else!!! IMO This is who I think they are playing !!!!!!!!

    Good thinking Laurie! ;)

    Melody replied

    He didn’t jump off the table? The ME who said “there was no ring” turned into him as he walked away, right? Or did I not see that right? Anyways, I just don’t know yet what I think about this all. I will wait to make my decision. But I do miss Michael/Starr, I liked them then she *poof* disappeared with a mysterious phone call, *sigh* poor Michael, can’t keep a girl.

    I can’t wait to see all three. I hope their writing gets better now. The writing since the nurses ball has been a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10. This show was really jumping for a while but it needs serious help at this point.

    Sheri replied

    OMG YES!! After the nurses ball the writing went totally downhill!! It has been a snoozefest literally i have fallen asleep on it numerous times. I really hope these three give GH a much needed jolt but I dont know i really feel most viewers are sick of all the behind the scenes drama they hear about AND too put all your eggs in one basket like they are doing with these three actors may backfire.

    Ces replied

    I agree, what on earth has gone on with the writing since the 50th show? Once all my faves left like Jack Wagner, we’re stuck with Pickle Lila, crappy new LULU and this stupid Sabrina/Patrick/Britt mess. Praying for more RH & LW again!! They were awesome together. Hopefully the pickle story is done — btw, who puts relish on crackers?

    Reply

    Jake R. replied

    HAHA “Who puts relish on crackers” is so true! I was watching Anna Devane do it last week at Kelly’s and was like “WTF-maybe it’s a British thing?” Relish in my mind goes on/in three things: hot dogs, hamburgers, and if you’re from the South, tuna fish.

    And I agree, the writing and sense of excitement I got from the 50th Anniversary lead-up episodes and The Nurses’ Ball eps has disappeared. I don’t think anything will top Luke & Laura taking off to find Lulu in the helicopter and Anna running around with a walkie talkie!

    Ces replied

    Haha…. right? :)
    What was Anna eating anyway? Lettuce & relish? Oh Yum!! I guess it’s true what they say about British food being bland.

    Hopefully they start picking up the pace again here real soon!!

    Jessie replied

    He will be Franco, but, he will play the “real Franco” the “Franco” James Franco played will turn out to have been an Imposter, Heather knwoing about it also, will paly into storyline, hence clearing RH return and explaining it somewhat palusibly and KiKi “Lauren” being his daughter also.

    Jessie replied

    Sorry about the quick typo on knowing
    Also, possible, they were switched at birth, Cause, Heather and Susan didn’t want the Quatermaine family to know he was out there.

  15. Kahuna says:

    Franco is dead, Jason shot him several times close up, even Jason could not miss at that close range, Kiki COULD be a nickname for Lauren Frank, although i always thought Kristen was coming back as an older Serena Baldwin.

    I think Roger is Franco also. This is a soap you can be shot in the head at point blank range and one year later come back alive. If stavros cassadine can survive falling into a bottomless pit and live then Roger can be reincarnated into Franco no problem.

    Laurie Dansby replied

    It is just a soap, which means Franco could very much be alive. No one ever really dies…

    he’s the Real franco, so he’s really jasons twin, the other franco was an imposter. thats what i think, so he’s franco n therefore lauren franks real father and their both Quatermaines.

    Completely, AGREE!!

    What would you have ABC do, they wanted to please the fans and return the actors who alot of us really enjoy, but, legally, they could not. Just give it some time, everything else has been GREAT, I think, except for the Vampire storyline and the Pickle Lilia stuff.

  18. danny says:

    IMO, and we all know what they say about opinions, GH has way too many actors on their roster, and though they brag and get praise for their veterans being on, how often has Finola Hughes been featured recently? Like all soap writers and exec producers seem to do, Carlavatti and Valentini (spelled incorrectly, I’m sure) fill the screen with new creations they prefer to write for and throw certain characters the occasional bone by featuring them with a newbie. I have no doubt this pair cares for the soap they run, but we could do with a little less Sabrina, a little less relish, a little less former OLTL actors and a lot more Anna, (I NEVER thought I would be saying this) Sonny, and, though it’s too late and who can blame him for leaving, Johnny.

    Reply

    Ces replied

    I agree with this. Duke & Anna haven’t even had time to develop at all because they’ve been tossed aside with a romantic moment here & there; not even enough to get into their storyline. I do like Nicholas/AJ/Elizabeth but not the pickle story at all . Any chemistry that Patrick & Sabrina had has suddenly vanished once they “got together” are they really technically together? Doesn’t even seem like it.. I actually miss Sonny too! :)

  19. Patti says:

    No offense to OLTL fans, but I would be perfectly happy if none of those characters came back, haven’t missed them at all. GH has plenty of characters, too many in fact, with tons of story lines going on. It’s one of the reasons Lulu (Julie Marie Berman) left! It’s going to be really hard to see them and to see them as entirely different people.

    Beyond over it. Could care less anymore. Llanview and Pine Valley are back. GH is back to grocery line time waster in a rag mag for me. ABC used these three actors as bait to calm the angered masses and get them over to Port Chuck – I didn’t fall for it. I watched the 50th anniversary and that was all – Starr, Todd and John BELONG in Llanview, regardless of who is playing them. They had no business killing off Cole and Hope – ABC sucks as far as I am concerned.

    People trashing this when none of the characters have spoken a word is laughable. Unless you can’t stretch your imagination at all, in which case, how the heck are you a soap fan?

    The show has probably had to make several last minute changes when the characters were yanked due to the legal issues, so we got 10x more relish and Britt BS then we probably would have. Now things are going to get back on track and I can’t wait! I’m excited to see how these talented actors will take on this challenge (change of character in a short period). I’m going along for the ride!

    Sorry, but the actors who were got in the middle of the ridiculousness of PP and ABC power struggle are the losers here. ABC should give them a release from their contracts so they can go back to OLTL since they can not be the characters we loved on GH. ABC you are truly a crappy network who knows you screwed up by cancelling two great shows in the first !

    I am looking forward to seeing it all unfold. Kristen A. has been wonderful as Starr, and I miss that character a lot, but she will now get the chance to stretch her wings a bit, and play someone edgier. That’s a good thing for her. As for Roger H. well, he has always been great no matter what the role is. He acts every single second of his characters and I find that really impressive! I think Michael E. will continue an already rich storyline, and the chemistry between he and Kelly Monaco is so much fun! But I do agree with a previous commenter… I wish ABC and Prospect Park would play nice, and not put the fans in the middle. I watch General Hospital because I stand by the actors… all the actors… but ABC Daytime continues to let us down with the shenanigans. General Hospital is the only ABC daytime show I watch!

    wow people say they are over it and in next breath say they will go back to watch OLTl, sorry but Prospect Park caused this problem with the “loaning” of the characters and without stipulating how they can used them caused the problem, people need to stop blaming ABC/Disney for everything, if you think they are the devil and PP is the saviour you are quite naive, ive seen the other online shows and they do NOT compare at all to a show on televison, im glad the three former OLTl crew is back cannot wait to see what happens next, as for all the negativity about GH people need to give it a chance, but it seems its those same folks who are still bitching about the 2 shows back online, seems you cannot please people at all!!!

    Reply

    CTwildheart replied

    Actually, PP DID stipulate they were to be consulted on story line and how the characters can be used….which abc/d ignored.

    PP are not without flaws in this mess, correct; but I would trust them over abc/d at this point.

    I don’t know your standards – but the reboots I have seen online ARE FANTASTIC and do look like some prime time shows.

    I still love GH and will support it always. That support extends to OLTL and AMC and all the actors/crew involved. I will support PP because they actually listened to the fans and were able to do what abc/d said they could not. I will only watch GH on abc/d because they lied to and manipulated their own employees and tried to do the same to the fans.

ME doesn’t look so great… but I like that he appears to be a doctor! KA looks better as a blonde but understand they had to do something with her hair to not have her look like Starr. The other big surprise was the gray haired goon going after Connie and Olivia… no spoliers there! Maurice must be happy that he is getting some mob action again. Of course… I would love Brit to live anywhere else but with Patrick. Sabrina should move in too!!!

    I love it and hate it!! I love it because I just love GH no matter what! and I hate it because I want to know who they are now!! I’m impatient, lol I just really hope that Kristen is not Lauren Frank her & Chad are too cute together….. but I’m wondering if Rodger is a Jerome and maybe Kristen is his daughter, and Ava Jerome is her Aunt…. that would be interesting…

    Theresa… that’s an interesting idea about RH being a Jerome! Not sure he would be at The Chew if he was? If he were a Jerome hew would be fascinating playing against Maurice/Sonny… and the relationship between RH and Laura (if she would be lucky to play with him) and Maurice would be stellar! I was hoping RH would be a Q and be just a bit bad like Q’s are but basically good and he would end up with Carly.

    I thought about that too why would he be at the Chew but then I remembered that Tracy had ties to the mob, …. I did read one rumor that said he was going to be Alexander Quartermaine maybe that will end up being true, although, I don’t care who he plays as long as they pair him with Carly(Laura), love them together! :)

    i heard that RH is the real Franco hence he is Jason’s twin and lauren franks father.. So we will get two new Quatermaine and RH and Ka will still be playing father and daughter.

    I really hope that’s not true….I don’t want him to be Franco…. anyone but Franco…..

    Frankly my dear I don’t give a d***m. Powers that be have ruined both OLTL and GH by reinventing characters. Have stopped watching OLTL on line and may soon give up on GH as well.

    Another poster said it first and most likely true…when the legal teams got involved and three characters were not allowed to be used on GH any longer – story lines most likely had to be rewritten and tweaked. I hadn’t thought about that, but that is probably why we have more of the relish, NuLulu and Patrina stories. I will give them the time they need to introduce these new characters and see what these actors can do with them. Happy for the actors. They got the shaft in this whole debacle just like us fans.

    I’m very interested to see how the new characters play out. Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson are all talented actors, so they will make it work.

    It’s not surprising to me that there are people complaining already. There are some people that are never happy, and just live to complain. How about actually giving the new characters a chance before you pass judgment? Just a thought.

    I do not want Kristen to be Lauren Frank – for 2 reasons – I think Ellie should be Lauren – just adds more surprise. Second Michael would not be able to have a relationship with her becuase they would both be Quartermaines – no kissing cousins please.

    I agree they can make her anybody but Lauren Frank!

    I think she will be Lauren Frank, but, Michael will turn out to be really Sonny’s bio-son and that’s how they will get them together.

    again trusting a company that is still new and does NOT have the money Disney does is foolish, PP will lose the court battle and the price will be the 2 shows budgets, I just find it ironic how most are so quick to jumping top the defence of PP and say Disney/ABC should not be trust nor should we watch any shows dusing the day except GH, I for one love The chew, sorry but AMC and OLTL are back the anger so many people still have is pathetic again get over it more then one show has been cancelled this weekend, its the way it is if they do not have an audience they will be cancelled its business!!

    The point is that GH/ABC had no right to those characters. They would not have hired Kristen, Michael, or Roger to star on GH if PP wasn’t kind enough to let them “use” their characters. It’s just plain wrong and GH/ABC should give PP whatever they want. GH/ABC is in the wrong and I’m thrilled to have stopped watching the mess they’re making!

    But why would Franco return from the dead. Jason did kill him right? I was thinking maybe RH is returning as Jerry Jax, it’s a long shot.

    Reply

    Jessie replied

    He will be Franco, but, he will play the “real Franco” the “Franco” James Franco played will turn out to have been an Imposter, Heather knwoing about it also, will paly into storyline, hence clearing RH return and explaining it somewhat palusibly and KiKi “Lauren” being his daughter also.

    Why do I see many people bashing ABC for using the “Llanview 3″ on General Hospital? I think people are rewriting history (like the soaps) like AMC and OLTL was a total go from the start. Don’t forget that Valenti/Carlivati was supposed to join the the OLTL/PP reboot but things at PP didn’t go as planned and the show was put on hiatus indefinitely. So Valenti/Carlivati joined GH and brought some OLTL characters with them in order to alleviate some anxiety over OLTL’s cancellation and PP’s failed (although temporary) attempt to bring the show back. Now more than a year later, PP’s efforts are finally succesfull but time has passed and the characters on GH has moved on. Also most of ABC’s daytime damage had been done by Brian Frons…who is no longer employed by ABC. I don’t see why fans are passing a bad aura to GH, one of the last surviving network soaps. Plus ABC are not the ones that started the cancellations, it was CBS started the chain with Guiding Light and As The World Turns. NBC before them with Another World…cut the soaps some slack and enjoy what we have left. I’m enjoying GH and happy that it’s still on the air. I’m also glad that AMC and OLTL are given a second life…I’m also looking forward to see what V/C are cooking up next…enjoy it people!!!

    SN: Hoping that the rumors are true that RH will be a Q/Cassadine…but I trust Carlivati to respect the shows history while entertaining us. Peace!!!

    Why is there no recognition of the fact that kiki looks exactly like Starr? Only a slight acknowledgement that stephen clay looks just like john mcbain. at least make some reference/acknowledge these facts GH people in charge! Why can’t everyone play nice for the benefit of the fans without whom neither ABC/GH or Prospect park/OLTL would be here at all!!!!!!!!!!!!Share the original characters!!!

    I guess they can’t even use the “Llanview 3″ characters’ names for fear of legal recriminations BUT Michael could have at least said to ‘Kiki’ “Hey, you look exactly like a girl I used to date.” To completely ignore these similarities is silly; but then again, as soap fans we are often asked to suspend all belief in things. I mean has Anna Devane even once asked “So who WAS that Jonathan Padgett guy that said he was really Duke Lavery” and why did Julian Jerome kill him if he was working with him?” or something to that effect?

    I just had a thought as too Roger’s character is… seeing that he’ll be involved with Heather, and her glee in reading Edward Q’s will about all heirs, known or unknown…

    I’m going to take a wild guess that he is the child of Heather & Jimmy Lee Holt. They were involved briefly in 1983 – trying to con someone, and Jimmy Lee was known for, well, being with many women.

    If you go by real time, that would make the child about 30 years old.

    Heather seduced Edward in 2004, but if that had produced an unknown child, they would only be 8 or so years old.

    but any child of Heather’s always has a chance of being deceptive and manipulating … something in that family gene pool there – her cousin Susan’s 2nd son was coo-coo.

    Over it !! Don’t like these characters at all don’t like the fact that they are having Roger Howarth play someone else . Is he Franco is he Stefan Casadine ??? I don’t think he is Jason to ugly for that…. lol !! Kiki is freaking annoying and Star belongs with Michael not this goofy girl with Morgan . The show has gone down hill since the nurses ball.
