Juan is on his way back to Port Charles and that mean’s a return visit for Michael Saucedo (Juan)!

With Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) not in the best of shape following the car crash and the health of her little baby boy in question, could Juan be coming back to lend support to Sabrina? Or, perhaps does he pave the way for taking Teresa Castillo off the canvas for her real-life maternity leave?

A GH rep told ABC Soaps In Depth that the airdate is yet to be determined, but SID reports to look for Juan to pop up in Port Charles sometime in June,

Saucedo told SID, “I’m excited to be returning”.  Michael is the real-life hubby of Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) of GH.

So, do you think will bring Juan back to Port Charles?  Weigh-in!

    Not a surprise he should have been there sooner to walk her down the aisle n support her when Robin returned. Always ♥ the character!

    Juan’s return is probably to help Sabrina leave when Teresa Castillo goes on maternity leave.Teresa’s last tape date before she temporarily leaves is May 24th and that episode would air sometime in June when Juan’s return is supposed to happen.Maybe the baby dies and Juan takes Sabrina back to Puerto Rico to mourn and recover.

    Her last tape date is a week prior to her due date (May 24th), so that would make it May 17th … Assuming she does not deliver early. One never knows when a baby will decide to make its grand entrance …

    I thought i read it somewhere that her last tape date is May 24th but Teresa’s due is in the later half of May for sure.However babies can come earlier or later than their due date.I’m sure GH has a plan in place just in case Teresa gives birth early.Also Kirsten Storms was still pregnant a few months ago she wanted to work until the very last minute but GH nixed that idea.As for Juan his return might be to help Sabrina leave and/or maybe he has a connection to Carlos.I know the show said Carlos and Lily weren’t siblings but that doesn’t mean they aren’t related some other way.

    The way GH writes some of its characters its hard to predict if Juan’s return will be worth it or not!!!

    What a waste to bring Juan back! I would rather see Lucky, Laura, Ethan OR some of the Quartermines like Brook, Maya back.

    I never cared for Juan but since Juan is coming back, he should take Liz with him when he leaves.

    if Sabrina is staying, why don’t they move Juan into the picture too. Kellys upstairs would make a place to rent. She goes home to recover from the trauma and then he comes back to keep an eye on her.

    Juan has a wife (Becky) and children … I doubt GH would relocate the entire family to Port Charles, just to support one expendable character …

    Errrrrrr….Becky and her husband live in Los Angeles where GH is shot.

    rebecca1 replied

    Hahahhaha…so sorry pumpkanpie! Just realized you were talking about Juan and his FICTIONAL wife Becky! Thought you were referring to Rebecca and THEIR children…and was wondering why you were referring to Port Charles as if it were a real place! LOL. “My bad…”

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    They are casting a young lady Dr. or nurse some thought was a Sabrina temp so maybe Juans wife is that Dr. or nurse and they are moving to PC?

    Shay replied

    Long day there, rebecca1????? LOL…..Happens to us all! ; )

    rebecca1 replied

    LOL…I guess so Shay. Or brain freeze. Sigh…I can’t help it if fact meets fiction and confuses the weary mind… ;) …ESPECIALLY after all our hard-core analysis!

    Shay replied

    Yes. we are rather intense, aren’t we???? LOL. ; )

    Shay replied

    (Per your suggestion below….) Oh, my dear rebecca1, nice try, but I think NOT! Why on earth would you wish to deprive me of my sublimely (non-)guilty pleasure of dishing those derisive declarations that so delight my (otherwise supremely civilized) soul? As you have precisely pointed out, the sainted Sappy, your ideal of a heavenly heroine, isn’t real….she is in fact, quite UNREAL….merely the frothy figment of Ron. C.’s fevered fantasies put to paper then projected in “personification,” no more resembling true life than that ridiculously rubberized runt re-creation upon which she has been (egregiously) emoting this past week! Such insufferable scenes as that actually serve to increase my antipathy toward this insipid character, as they always seem to possess a particularly apparent air of artifice, so much contrivance to force the audience to care about this silly girl, and now her ill-conceived infant, too….my exasperations expand with each and every appearance! In my experience, the only effective “elixir” is when we enjoy a “time-out” from this over-exposed creature ….as you may have noticed, my cutting critiques of the subject were comparatively curtailed during those blissful weeks of her much-appreciated absence, replaced by my rousing remarks regarding AJ’s atrocious au revoir and Ava’s appallingly arrogant acts, including her contemptible burial chamber chacha with Sonny! Hence, it would be an immense understatement to say that I am actually extremely enthused over the prospect of a Sobby-free summer ….sweet relief indeed from both the viewing fatigue aspect, as well as the barf-inducing, over-the-top sweetness of this truly grating presence! I can only hope the blessed break extends into autumn and finally, permanence! (But don’t worry, should that most desired outcome ever come to fruition, we’ll still have “Revenge’s” blandly benign Margaux to deconstruct! LOL.) Having said that, thank you for your “efforts,” just the same….I guess we shall simply have to remain sparring partners and polar opposites in the previously established roles so beautifully identified by our already much-missed mutual friend, FAS….with you cast as the kind heart with the highly-honed handle on humanity and me, the waggish wordsmith with the wicked wit and tongue firmly planted in cheek. Works for me! ; )

    rebecca1 replied

    Shay…you had me at “rubberized runt.” :/

    Alak and alas, I must now recover from your dastardly diatribe aimed at the gentle Sabrina and her precious preemie. You’ve exhausted me. If only Sabrina and Margaux were real; we’d all go to a lovely cafe, have a spot o’ tea or a cuppa cappuccino (maybe even have a calorie meltdown and gorge on cannolis, cheesecake, and cupcakes galore). And, as if those delectable edibles weren’t sweet enough…Sabrina and Margaux would be the icing on the cake! (so to speak…) At which point, you, my dear Michael Fairman soap site friend, would be so deliriously sugar rushed that ALLLLLL the hate in your heart would evaporate. Just. Like. That! :/

    Just what we have all been waiting for wih bated breath!!!!! How are we going to contain our excitement until June? We are jumping for joy over Juan’!!!!! I have no idea how they they will be able to top his last epic visit when he heroically and triumphantly delivered Sabrina’s dress!. I am farklempt!

    Ole’, Johnny!!!!! Thank you for today’s LOL moment!!!!

    Johnny replied

    Glad to oblige Shay! It was hard to type it through the laughter. Lol. I sincerely mean no ill will towards Michael…him and Becky look like a nice happy family. But that character is very unnecessary to say the least.

    Shay replied

    This is true, Johnny! I also have nothing against MS or “Juan!” for that matter….he seems like a very sweet guy, and I admire his wife. I just think it’s such a shame that his appearance will probably once again consist of a second banana cameo to that dud of a babymama, whose character is so widely loathed and mocked…..could he not be given a more dignified purpose?

    rebecca1 replied

    I’ve decided that you need an intervention Shay! Somehow you always come back to your contempt for Sabrina! I’m worried about you…

    Repeat after me. Sabrina is not real. Sabrina is a fictional character. Sabrina is a fictional character who HAPPENS TO BE A SWEETHEART! I must exorcise the wrath I feel for this fictional nurse who I repeat IS A SWEETHEART!

    Now…breathe…breathe…in/out, in/out. Chant…Nice Sabrina, Good Sabrina, Nice Sabrina, Good Sabrina.

    There. Feel better?
    ;)

    Yet another prop for Sabrina. What a waste. Any chance he can take her away and never bring her back?

    Word Noelle. Takes a village to prop the Disney princess. Another character
    Juan who is not needed. Nor was he needed the first time.

    Shay replied

    More like an entire network working overtime to try to make this completely failed character viable, Cathy! It’s not working, and nobody will change that fact, not even the magical Juan!!!!

    Shay replied

    Oh, if only, Noelle! Juan may indeed have awesome powers….remember he located Sobby’s “lucky” er, not so lucky…..wedding dress, but he cannot perform miracles. I suspect even moving heaven and earth wouldn’t be enough to permanently extricate that worthless nitwit nurse from Port Charles’ landscape. But we girls can still dream….. ; )

    Of all the people from GH’s History, they decided to bring Juan back. SMH! Please tell me Juan is making a very short appearance.

    Given the fact that he’s height challenged, I would surmise that his appearance would indeed be short.

    LOL. I’m surprised SID has not offered Michael Saucedo a job with their magazine. I would rather see Michael Saucedo and Rebecca Herbst working for a magazine then on screen. “Juan” and “Elizabeth” are far too dull on screen.

    I agree. I don’t dislike Elizabeth; but, I find her a bit dull and boring.

    Cathy replied

    Since SIDS Richard favors BH Liz, I am surprised he didn’t work to get Juan to come back to GH as a regular.
    Tied of the mags pushing their agendas and their pets. What happened to their unbiased reporting.

    I was on a General Hospital hiatus when Juan was originally on. I stopped watching after Sonny left Brenda at the altar in the 90′s, Maurice left the show, and she had her breakdown. I only began watching again when Vanessa Marcil returned in 2010. I’ve watched it again ever since.

    He should return as a regular. I would like to see Juan and Elizabeth as a couple.
