Just how are they going to pull off this one, folks?
In an amazing shocking exclusive this morning from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, long time heartthrob of the GH 70′s and 80′s, Chris Robinson is returning to the ABC soap for its 50th anniversary, even though when we last saw Rick Webber he had done some terrible things and wound up dead. First we thought the deed was done thanks to Laura (Genie Francis), and then we came to find out it was Scott (Kin Shriner)!
Now according to TVG, “That hot mess won’t stop Robinson from hitting the air April 1 in scenes with Rick’s former love Monica (Leslie Charleson). Just how GH will pull off the trick is hush-hush.”
General Hospital’s head writer, Ron Carlivati related about Robinson aka Rick Webber’s return: “I grew up loving Rick and Monica — to me, as a young fan, they were what GH was all about — and I really wanted to find a way to bring Rick back despite his death. I also couldn’t imagine Rick would do some of the horrible hings he did in his last appearance. That wasn’t the Rick Webber I remembered! … we did figure out a very surprising and appropriate way to incorporate him into the anniversary. There will be a nice, emotional payoff for the audience.”
So soapers, are you shocked that Chris Robinson is returning? How do you think Carlivati and his writing team will weave Rick Webber into the story? Weigh-in!
