GH fans were hoping that Ingo Rademacher’s return to the ABC daytime drama series would be a little longer, but news today from the fan favorite himself via his Instagram account, revealed he wrapped his return and is headed back to his home in Hawaii and to appear on the hit CBS series, Hawaii-Five-O.

Next week on the Monday August 1st episode of General Hospital, Jax will be on action on-screen as he comes into the Josslyn kidney donor storyline.  Over the last week, Ingo has been posting photos and videos from the set on his social media accounts, especially with his longtime cast mates, Laura Wright (Carly) and Maurice Benard (Sonny).

In this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Rademacher previews: “Carly has made this whole thing public. and Jax wants to keep a lid on it for many reasons.  One is that if something comes out that is bad news for Josslyn, he wants to protect her, and the other is that he knows Carly too well! He doesn’t believe she will give up the search after one conversation with their daughter.”

So, sad to hear Ingo is done at GH?  Excited to see though, on-screen starting next week?  How will Jax impact the Josslyn kidney donor storyline? Comment below!

    i hear he loves living in hawaii, so hard for him to return full time if he doesn’t want to give that up, so i’m happy if we get him when he’s able to do it, its sure better then nothing. i just wish the character wasn’t tie to Carly, how next time he comes back he will inter act with more characters, although maybe he will in this run who knows. He’s so hot though, i can’t wait to see him onscreen.

    The Josslyn donor story is a total fail..
    It is empty, simply empty. I have not even been interested the BLAH ..
    But— I am really looking forward to seeing Ingo/Jax !!!!
    No matter how sloppy lame he will be written, I really am looking forward to his scenes!

    A total fail is right, but YES we get to see Ingo/jax..This dude always has great screen presence regardless of the poor writing given his way.

    Back in the day, I though he would have made a good recast of OO7, adjusting his accent to British.

    Always though Laura’s Carly was best with him chemistry wise!

    Goes right along with the failure of revealing what happened with little jakes time away with Helena. Why bother with that weird book Helena gave Elizabeth, and they brought in Kevin to help with Laura and Spenser but no one hypnotized jake to see what he remembers… just odd that that night he “died” and Jos got her mysterious kidney was the same and they choose the boring half of the story to delve into.

    YAWN

    it really would have amped up the story… had the “last” Josslyn been a part of this

    Hannah Nordberg… I miss you, bunches and bunches

    Carly needs all the help she can

    Shay replied

    Agreed, Patrick! I really miss Hannah Nordberg’s “bad seed vibe” take on Joss! That girl was too much fun!

    christy replied

    Yes Patrick. I miss “going as CORN for Halloween again this year”

    Ces replied

    I agree! Boring! Who cares! The Nathan/claudette crap is stupid too. Andre & Jordan are boring and mismatched! What us working is Laura & Kevin!

    They didn’t ever give Jordan and Andre a chance…they give Jordan much more screen time with Curtis who I think she’s REALlY into, which is awkward because he’s seeing her employee/friend Valerie…made all the more confusing because there’s always this undercurrent between
    Curtis and Nina…and Curtis with Hayden (which they suddenly dropped). Curtis is the “man around town”…for a new guy he’s already been involved on some level with four ladies…

    I think Andre and Jordan’s relationship was to set up a chemistry…push/pull between him and Anna.

    Nathan and Claudette could get interesting once Nathan has possible renewed feelings for her…then Griffin finds out she’s in town, etc. I’m giving it a chance.

    Making Griffin a priest does nothing for me other than show his inner turmoil. He should have been a Jewish doctor…his mom could have been Jewish and surprisingly there are no Jewish doctors working in the hospital.. Strange….Could have been a good guy but with a bit of a more dynanmic/wild streak like Patrick when he first arrived. As with above, I”m hoping Griffin will be fleshed out more. He’s gorgeous but a tad too mellow….

    Ces replied

    I think Jordan is too defensive with Andre. She always has to put up her dukes with him which doesnt come off very well. The elusive woman is ok to play but Jordan is just so exhausting! Now she probably wants Curtis because Valerie wants him. Breaking the friendship code. I think Andre & Anna have more chemistry but not sure if he’s enough for her to move past Duke.

    I hate the ex returns to town story with Claudette. It’s more believable with Spinelli since we’re invested in him as a character. Also, as cute as Ryan is, he just cant make this story come alive. Griffin is also SO dull! Hope he’s the hospital killer! Happy that KS is back!!!

    GH has too many stories that arent working…. Nina the dlut, Cassadine stupidity, MORGAN again! Make it stop.

    What if Ava, somehow unaware, is the donor??? …that would shock Carly and Sonny…i miss when this show was set in Port Charles…why did they have to change it to Sonnyville-lol

    Christy replied

    Or maybe Franco was a donor… and he gets along with jake because they share kidneys. Te he he

    I think Ava being the donor sounds too much like One Life to Live when Todd got Alex Olanov as a donor for Star… but they are similar. Both blonde, both mob involved. :-)

    Ditto! And double ditto!!

    Triple ditto. Other than his good looks, I don’t get it. A pretty face can only take you so far! Uh-hum Nathan & Griffin! Dull.

  5. SZima says:

    I never thought Ingo would stick around. With his home in Hawaii, that’s pretty hard to do.
    Maybe GH can come up with short arcs for Jax a little more often though.
    I’m glad he’s continuing to do guest appearances on Hawaii Five-O.

    Or how about Hawaii on location shots… remember those scenes GH had for puerto rico with Luke, Sonny & Brenda? They used that scene of jumping in the boat as part of the opening montage.

    I don’t think that’s in their budget these days…

    Once again you are spot on Geeze you are getting this wonderful sarcasm down pat you are almost as good at it as I am! Kudos once again!!!

    I have to agree the writing is a bore on GH these days. What bores me: The donor story, Cassadine Island, Kristina’s sex life, Claudette, and Julian. Julian is creeping me out. So glad he is behind bars. I think they should trim the cast. I would have Julian and Ava in prison for many years to come. I love the actors, but their stories are done. I am not missing Olivia. She and Lucas were great confronting Julian.

    The only story keeping my interest is the mention of Jeff Webber. The likelihood that Elizabeth and Hayden/Rachel are sisters could be interesting. Does Heather have control of the Raymond Berlin Ponzi scam millions? Will Jeff Webber be making an appearance? RDA that is.

    Christy replied

    I think Berlin paid Heather off to keep quite about the ponzi scheme AND about ElizAbeth and Haydens connection.

    So do you think its like the parent trap where two (mrs berlin and rick webber) had an affair and each took a child. Or do you think it was another baby switch decades ago? Or maybe Elizabeth was adopted, and is really a berlin child given up?

    So many choices!

    Just thinking, elizabeth could be a result of mr berlin affair with her mother.

    His life looks pretty good (via socia medis pics) in Hawaii…and I doubt he’d want to leave his wife and young kids for more than a short trip…so I never expected him to stick around too long. Hopefully his scenes will add some nice drama to this storyline.

    Happy to see him AND Jax…not so thrilled to see “them” go but as Aria said it’s known he lives in Hawaii and loves it there. I do agree it’d be great if they could have him pop in more often!

    If he is just about to appear on screen and has already finished taping in real life, how long will Jax be on GH?

    With everything else going on, the boring stories, starting and dropping the stories, having too many stories, having too many new characters, having long-time actors off screen for a myriad of reasons for too long, I’m exhausted. That doesn’t translate into must-see TV for me.

    I’ve not seen much of Jax on GH since I started watching so I don’t have a real investment in the character. However, if you’re bringing in someone like that, that I’ve read had a big following, then I hope it is worth it for the long-time fans.

    Totally agree! When I’m multi-tasking while watching the GH there is a real problem! I was so busy not paying attention, I looked up to see that Kirsten was Maxie today!! That was a hilight; too bad the story blows!
