Savvy General Hospital viewers got a bit of unexpected intel during Friday’s credits of the ABC daytime drama series.
As the show rolled the credits of the cast in the lower-third of viewers TV or computer screens, Michael Easton was credited as appearing in the episode as “Hamilton Finn”, even though he was not in it.
Thus, viewers learned an episode early that Hamilton Finn is the name of Easton’s highly-anticipated character. The popular actor, who is returning in a new incarnation following being killed off as Dr. Silas Clay, will make his official return on Monday’s March 21st installment of GH. It had been previously reported that Easton will play another doctor. Fans should find out soon just what type of doctor Hamilton Finn is!
Speculation making the rounds is that because all GH episodes got pushed back one today from their original airdate, starting with the March 11th episode due to ABC’s preemption for the funeral of former first lady Nancy Reagan, that perhaps the credits did not get switched to match it.
Meanwhile, as soon as social media got wind that Easton’s new character would be named “Hamilton Finn”, even a new Twitter page for the character went up under the handle @DrFinnGH
On Michael Easton’s official facebook page it reveals the the fan favorite’s first three episodes back to the General Hospital will air March 21, 22, and 23.
