And as the big returns keep coming to General Hospital, looks like there is more in store paying homage and somehow connecting the stories of the characters and actors currently on the GH canvas that were once part of the vampire saga of its spin-off Port Charles! Next week Jon Lindstrom makes his return to the ABC soap as Kevin Collins to help his troubled estranged wife Lucy Coe! And according to this week’s issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Lindstrom relates that they are going to address the history that he and Kelly Monaco’s Sam (who was Kevin’s daughter Livvie on PC) have and Michael Easton, presently John (who was Caleb the Vampire on PC) have somehow!
Lindstrom stated, “We can”t say that General Hospital and Port Charles become overwhelmed with vampires, because they don’t. But there is some real concern and some questions and confusion and mistaken identity and all those things make for good plotting. It’s really how does the story fit that story and all the baggage that comes back with people like Lynn Herring (Lucy) and me and Michael Easton and Kelly?”
In addition, Jimmy Deshler is coming to General Hospital on January 30th in the new role of Rafe who is rumored to wind up being revealed as the son of PC’s Alison Barrington and Caleb Morley! However, the character of Rafe could be a spoiler in the romance of Molly (Haley Pullos) and TJ (Tequan Richmond), according to SOD!
So soapers, what do you think should be done with the characters of Lucy, Kevin, Sam and John in regards to their real and mistaken identities? If Michael Easton could no longer play John McBain, because McBain belongs to One Life to Live, would GH dare make him Caleb? And what do you think about the edition of Deshler to the mix? Weigh-in!
