Coming up on General Hospital: Kristina Wagner heads back to Port Charles as Felicia Jones Scorpio to help her daughter Maxie in her greatest time of need. But how will Felicia’s re-emergence on the canvas go down with the citizens of Port Charles and Maxie, herself? Well, in the new issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH head scribe, Ron Carlivati fills us in on how Wagner’s return will shake-up the canvas.
Carlivati stated, “Felicia’s return just fit nicely into the story of her daughter, Maxie, who dug herself into a pretty deep hole in the story we’ve been unfolding, in which she’s confessed to the murder of Lisa Niles. As she gets deeper and deeper into that, it made sense to me that her mother might show up- even though we know she hasn’t always been there in the past! We are tremendously lucky that Kristina was amenable to coming back, and we’re excited about it. Getting into the writing of it, you want to play Felicia’s history with Mac and Anna Devane now that we have her back on the canvas. There are so many people she has ties with. I think people are anxious to see her cross paths with those people and to see how everyone is going to react to having her back in town. I think especially, Mac because the relationship between Mac and Felicia was so big and it is their daughter, quote, unquote, because he has been Maxie’s step-father for so long.”
Ron also stressed that regardless of Maxie’s initial reaction to Felicia, that Wagner will be sticking around long enough for their relationship to evolve on-screen. “At the moment, it’s open ended. I don’t believe we have set an end date for Kristina.” Carlivati revealed they are writing scripts at this time well into June and added, “I can tell you, I am still writing for her.”
So soapers, are you excited to finally see Kristina Wagner back on GH …. and how Felicia’s return will impact her family? Let us know!
