27 January 18th, 2014 Ryan Carnes Returns As Lucas To General Hospital! What Were Your First Impressions!


On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers saw the highly-awaited return of Ryan Carnes in the role of Lucas Jones, the adopted son of Bobbie Spencer (Jackie Zeman) and Tony Jones, and the biological son of Julian Jerome (William deVry) and Cheryl Stansbury!

When Carnes as Lucas, made his re-entrance on to the canvas, he first met with Bobbie and Luke (Tony Geary), where Bobbie was already lamenting about telling Lucas the truth … that Julian is alive!  This comes along with her worries that daughter Carly (Laura Wright) is missing!  When the door bell rings at Carly’s, it’s none other than Lucas!

Ryan Carnes has some exchanges with GH vets Tony Geary and Jackie Zeman, where Bobbie almost spills the beans to Lucas, but he does notice that Bobbie is not eating and heads to none other than Kelly’s to get some food for his mom, where he runs into Sam (Kelly Monaco), who at first does not realize who he is!  The kicker:  Sam just walked out of the diner on Julian, who came to quiz her about Lucas!  Will Julian and Lucas meet face to face on Monday’s episode? Stay tuned!

So, what were your first impressions of Ryan Carnes return as Lucas! We came away with a high-five for Mr. Carnes!  Weigh-in below!

  1. Michele says:

    Loving him!


  2. Greta says:

    He was always my favorite Lucas so I’m glad they got him back. I enjoyed his scenes Friday and look forward to seeing him interact with Sam and Julian. I also look forward to scenes with Kirsten Storms’ Maxie when she returns, I always liked their relationship.


  3. Deb says:

    So glad he is back. I always thought he was the best Lucas.


  4. Reagan says:

    Ryan’s time on the show was actually the brief period of time (over the last 25 years) that I didn’t watch GH… so I don’t really have a frame of reference for him or his approach to this character. When they first started talking about “Lucas” I was hoping someone from one of the axed shows would get a chance at this role, so I was a little disappointed when I heard Ryan was taking the role. But I can’t give an accurate answer until I’ve seen more of him. So far, he seems ok.


  5. jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    He looks more like he’d be Silas’s son than Julians…imo…he fits right in…like he’s always been there!


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Was that the real Dr.O named Chief of Staff or her twin…also will it be Luke buried alive in that grave Shirley Jones stumbles upon?


    Shay replied

    Excellent question, jimh! I asked the same one on a more recent thread! It’s funny because I was just thinking last week how wacky and wonderful it would be for “Dr. O.” to run GH, never thinking that it could actually happen! But given her rather “prim and proper” exterior on yesterday’s episode, it does make me surmise that this is another entirely different character, or at the very least another identity that our beloved mutter has adopted to “hide” in plain sight???? Although if that is really the original “O’ then who is locked up in the pokey? There has to be a twist there to explain this delightful surprise! All I can say is that this has been the best development in a painfully boring year so far!!!!!

  6. MJ says:

    Very impressed. He seems relaxed and his acting style was very real. He is def more handsome to me this time around!!


  7. Annette P says:

    Glad they brought back Ryan Carnes instead of anyone else,good choice.


  8. Phil says:

    Might his bio Mom be in tow? Perhaps that is the role Donna Mills has been tapped to play?


    Sharla replied

    The character was killed off in the 1990′s. Donna Mills is 73. Far to old to play Cheryl Stansbury. I am betting Donna Mills will play the mother of Julian Jerome.


  9. Aria says:

    First impression that he looked hot as hell hope he doesn’t hook up with brad like I heard, Lucas is way to hot for brad especially if it’s true that Lucas chases after brad instead of the other way around.


  10. Kaffen says:

    I was so glad to see Lucas!!!!…GH did a good job casting Kelly Monaco, Ryan Carnes

    and William DeFry, they all look like family!!!!!

    I also enjoyed Sam and Silas banter when they was at Kelly!!!!

    Also Come On Sam!!!! I would love for Daughter & Father to bond!!


    KansasGuest replied

    I agree about the family resemblance factor & the need for more Jerome bonding. Julian needs to be seen playing w/Danny again! Those two were adorable together. But, I also liked Danny w/Faison…so what do I know?


  11. Elizabeth says:

    Well, he totally outshined Tony Geary in their scenes together on Friday IMO


  12. Rose says:

    I immediately like him, just something appealing about him. Can’t wait to see what is to come.


  13. CJ says:

    Loved him. He was very natural, relaxed & looked fantastic!


  14. mike says:

    It’s like he’s always been there, good casting choice.


  15. BTripp says:

    He fits in perfect and is a wonderful actor and looks like he could be related to Sam and Julian!


  16. Stylish says:

    HOTTIE! Loved him! I remember him on the show years ago and he seems a lot hotter and sexier this time around. I am hoping his triangle with Felix and Brad is quite temporary.


  17. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    It was alright, though, not the Lucas I would’ve preferred to come back. Hopefully they pair him with someone who isn’t Brad or Felix, though. Or that he isn’t written as a cliche.


  18. JLH says:

    It’s great seeing RC back in the role of Lucas, and he looks fantastic. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him. Hope he sticks around Port Chuck for a while–I loved his interaction with Luke!


  19. Tim says:

    Hope he gets a good story line. Good to see Bobbie on the front burner. Lucas and Luke hit it off immediately. Lucas and Julian do look like father and son. Good choice.


  20. CTwildheart says:

    He slipped right back in easily. Seemed very natural. I was happy to see a familiar face at the door. :)


  21. Andrew says:

    Seems OK. But way too good for either Brad or Felix. Would hate to see him date either. Can’t we dump both Brad and Felix and find another guy for Lucas? (Although Brad did raise quite high in my estimation when he told off Felix last Friday. Even so, he’s still shady and Felix is still Gladys Kravitz…)


  22. Christy says:

    I remember when he was on before… and now he’s a man (yeah baby) so it makes the related to Julian better.. they have similar builds too.

    and they’re both easy on the eyes! :-)

    welcome back!


  23. Lia says:

    I don’t like him. Send him back to Seattle.
