Fans have been asking for this, and now they will finally get to see one of the those most beloved characters of all-time on General Hospital again, when Jackie Zeman returns in the role of Bobbie Spencer!

With Laura, Scotty, Luke and everyone else from the past on the canvas shortly, this is a perfect time for Nurse Bobbie to make an appearance.   The big question is; will we finally get to see some more scenes between Bobbie and her daughter, Carly played by Laura Wright?

Zeman posted a message to her fans on her facebook page just an hour ago about her comeback stating:  “Bobbie Spencer is coming back to GH soon.  I am very happy to be invited and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead.  Thank you so much to all of you for your good wishes and positive thoughts. xoxox”

So what do you think about the news of Jackie returning to GH?  Let us know!

    She should come back and have Bobbi in scenes with Carly. I also like to see her and Luke talk fond memories about their late Aunt Ruby. Also i hope the 50th anniversary pays tribute to the late John Bernidino(Steve Hardy)and the late Emily MCloughin
    (Jessie Brewer) who were so much part of GH’s rich history.

    I agree also. I miss all the characters that were on GH in 1970 when I started watching. I’m enjoying seeing some of them again. I can’t wait to see Bobby’s return.

    I remember when Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame played on GH as Jessie Brewer’s nephew. It would have been a nice touch to the 50th anniversary show if they were to play tribute to Jessie(played by the late Emily) if they could get Mark to reprise his role of Jessie’s nephew for a least a couple scenes. It would be fun to see a few long forgotten characters that predate the Luke and Laura era for some of old geezers who fondly remember them.

    Judith replied

    Yes. I agree. John Beradino and Emily McLaughlin need to be recognized as they were on GH from Day 1.

    um yeah, they were always there that I remember! ha!

    She was a Playboy Bunny at the Playboy Club in early 70′s… they had to fill out those costumes you know! :-)

    She has had WAAAY too much work done on her face & her chest. She didn’t need to do all that. Glad she is coming back though. I have always thought GH dropped the ball by not developing a relationship between her & Carly & Carly’s kids-along with Luke & his kids. I love the Spencers!

    Lynn replied

    I remember Bobbie always being voluptuous. as she was a regular cast member on GH in the early 80′s She might have a push up on nonetheless, she’s a very striking woman.

    I have missed Bobbie and Carly scenes for so long! It was a big mistake for past regimes to write Bobbie off of the canvas. She was the one that grounded Carly, who always saw through Carly’s bs. Yes, Carly had Jason but I always missed Bobbie’s influence, especially when Carly ended her marriage to Jax. And her scenes with Luke were always poignant.

    I have no idea why Bobbie has not been in PC. Are they going to tell us where she has been? She has grandchildren in town and her daughter needs her. I hope that her son Lucas comes home too.

    GH, if it continues to rebuild its core characters and legacy families, Port Charles could become like a real soap town again… like Oakdale (ATWT). Those connections, histories, and today’s issues befalling us from economy to social justice to war, make for good drama and creat the solid foundation for the sotrytelling we love so much.

    Welcome home, Bobbie!

  11. Shelly says:

    Yay!!! She definately needs to interact with Carly. Carly has no direction and focus. Maybe Mom can smack some sense into her.

    Now I love it that GH is bringing back the vets. But I hope ABC isn’t setting us up for disappointment, waiting for Katie to establish more of a foot hold on the afternoon lineup (still overhyped!!).

    Another storyline for Carly? Hmmm… No thanks. Let her have her own storyline.

    And whatever you do, DON’T kill off the character. Like the way Alison returned just to be killed 2 episodes later.

    WTG GH! Do you realize how many of us baby boomers watched GH in the 70′s 80′s even into the 90′s before internet & work took over. We are coming back and so are you! Bringing back all those loved ones will help us pick up the show and start watching again during either over the internet or when we retire! Thank you for making this happen! GH ratings are going to shoot thru the roof again! Good job! Can’t wait to see them all back on the screen!

    This is how it should play out: Bobbie visits from Seattle where she has been living. Reuinites with Luke and Carly (in separate scenes) updates us on Lucas. He’s now a nurse as well working in Seattle. She must visit BJ and Tony (this is where we can find out about Lucas) at the cemetary and maybe bump into Felicia so they can reminisce about the BJ/Maxie heart transplant story. Bobbie will also have a run in with Laura who is also returning to discuss Amy, Laura’s sister who has since died offscreen. I’m mean who could forget hospital gossip Amy Vining? Especially since Amy was so important in the Nurse’s Ball as Lucy’s dresser. Shell Kepler deserves some kind of tribute. Bobbie also has alot of unfinished business with Monica. Monica’s grandson Jake died and saved the life of Bobbie’s granddaughter Joslyn. Both characters were not around when this lightning fast tale was told so they both need to talk about it.

    Excellent ideas Martin. I would love to see all of this play out. And remember when Michael was in the coma, his blood grandmothers are Monica & Bobbie & neither one of them was at his bedside. They were not involved at all. It drove me crazy. They are so connected by history & family & this relationship has been totally ignored! I didn’t even THINK about the Jake/Joslyn connection. WOW.

    Reply

  41. martin RN says:

    Unfortunately this is how it will play out: Bobbie does a walk on in her own clothes and hospital badge at the hospital where it appears she has never left Port Charles at all and has always “been there.” She has two lines, her pager goes off and she says, “I have to take this” and exits stage left. Never to be seen again. I hate was GH has done to Bobbie Spencer.

    Reply

    Violet replied

    Unfortunately, I think it will play out to be something like that. My thought was that she shows up for the Nurses Ball for hugs and smiles with other characters while saying a few lines, then she just magically poofs again into thin air never to be seen from, spoken about, or heard from again as she has been for years.

    I want her back to say. She doesn’t have to be on everyday, but she NEEDS to be part of the hospital staff and to act like Carly’s mother. Michael needs a grandma. Well, so do Carly’s other kids except we haven’t seen them in around lately. (They need to recast that horrible actress playing Jocelyn. )

    Welcome back, Jackie!

    My guess is that Bobbi may have given another child up for adoption (a Quartermaine child) in the past and that is the heir that Tracy is looking for! That is why Carly would know about this “heir”. Glad to see all of the core GH characters returning to the show…with the exception of the vampire storyline, it has been the best I have seen the show in years. Very excited that they are rebuilding the historical families on GH!

It would be nice to see Steve, Lucy, Jessie and all the orginals if only for a few days. Let;s remember where it all started.

    By all accounts, Bobbie has not even met her granddaughter Joslyn. Soaps need to pay more attention to family ties in order to make the stories more realistic. In real life, grandma would’ve come for many visits by now. I wonder how old Joslyn will be the next time they show her, thanks to SORAS.

    A great way to celebrate GH’s 50th anniversary. There are just some characters we never want to let go, the Spencer clan being one for sure and especially some of the originals from way back. Paying tribute to those who have passed would be most acceptable. :)
