And if you didn't read the TV Guide interview with Sebastion Roche here is a small part of it ---
Why is Jerry Jacks Back?
Sebastion Roche explains:
He intends to terrorize Port Charles on a massive scale and it's going to affect every character on the show. It's very deadly. I'm quite interested to see how he's going to pull this off!
Regarding Robin's death: Basically it was an elaborate concealment. Ewen [Nathin Butler] found an anonymous corpse and switched it with Robin's body, did a little DNA tampering, and that's how he managed to make everyone believe Robin died. Jerry was only peripherally on the scene but he was manipulating Ewen, operating the puppet strings.
What does Jerry have on Ewen? Are they related?
Jerry has a pretty big piece of news about Ewen — a piece of personal news. So we're talking strong blackmail. Jerry is manipulating quite a few people, Ewen being the main one.
I really don't know all of [Jerry's] evil motivations but there is a monetary compensation involved here. He really enjoys being the criminal mastermind. His ego rejuvenates at the very idea. Money, power, ego. Same as all villains, right? [Laughs] He's like the head of a Wall Street bank!
When Nancy Grahn [Alexis] saw me on the set she said, "I haven't had sex on the show since you left!" I think Jerry would love to rekindle that.
Coming up, Jerry injects Alexis with some sort of serum and he does the same to his little niece Josslyn and they both end up in the hospital looking like they might die.
I guess I should say that Jerry is looking to rekindle the romance with Alexis in a rather, uh, forceful way. He's not asking for permission. He may be terrifying but she's always had a soft spot for Jerry Jacks! And there are very few people he cares about. There's Alexis. And Josslyn. And his brother and mother. That's pretty much it.
[Jerry] always had a sort of calmness, a rather gentlemanly approach to his dastardly acts. He's always a cool cucumber. He never got too mean. He was always in control.
Why kidnap Robin and stage her death?
Again, I think it's money. He knows Robin is a well-loved member of Port Charles society, and he knows people will do anything to get her back. [Laughs] Plus, I think he loves driving a stake through her husband Patrick's heart because Patrick is just too good-looking to be true. He needs to be punished!
[Jerry has] never had financial issues, but he does spend a lot. He enjoys life. He enjoys his epicurean pleasures, his dramatic destinations, his gadgets. Ever wonder why billionaires always need more and more money? It's a power trip. And, of course, he wants to make Port Charles pay for the attempt on his life. Someone put a wrench in his machinations and he's not a happy camper about that. The guy wants payback.
Regarding the length of Roche's return: For the moment its a few weeks... but we'll see.
Perhaps it is because I simply cannot imagine another dead baby, I think Clint Buchanon, Natalie's father may be faking her and Liam's deaths to punish John McBain whose attention always wanders to a woman in distress, it just happens to have been Natalie on many occassions over the last several years.
Thanks for all the "goodies" Sassy...

And from Soaptown USA ---
GENERAL HOSPITAL: If you haven't heard by now Ingo Rademacher tweeted his return to Port Charles and he thanks Frank Valentini for bringing him back home. It is being reported that Jerry is attempting to get rid of all of his enemies, which is just about everyone in Port Charles. It would be a good idea if no one in town drank the water. Jax will also put Jason in the position of having to save Liz's life, as he puts his own life in danger. This begins the mystery of a man made toxin and who will be the victims of this war against the folks of Port Charles. Look for Alexis Davis to be one of the victims along with Jossylyn Jax. What does Jerry have to do with Joe Scully as well as Todd Manning and will they be friend or foe?..... John tells Alexis about his sister, and not wanting to repeat his father's mistake. Alexis then admits to John that she had an affair with a married man in her youth as they discuss Sam and John relationship. Could we finally be learning who Sam's father really is?.... Scully, will soon be out in the open and will be settting up business in Port Charles he will be moving full scale on Sonny's territory. Johnny Zaccarra may be involved with Joe and perhaps his ally...... Some storyline changes are being made now that Kristen Storms returns as Maxie. The question is, will Spinelli and Maxie get back together? Wouldn't surprise me one bit. But first she would have to divorce Matt....... The baby alive story will start to come together when Todd gets out of control. It is being speculated that Todd confesses about the baby switch, first to Starr who insists he tell Sam and Tea which Todd agrees but makes Starr promise not tell Michael because he doesn't want Carly to know. Michael and Starr are facing Starr's betrayal by Johnny and her father, while Trey deals with Kristina and Kate...... Kassie DePaiva is returning for a longer stint this fall and The Tale of Two Todds will take a twist when we find out that Todd did not kill his brother Victor. (But we knew that already) “We have all these great surprises to play out,” Valentini teased....... What if Olivia's LSD trip turns her into the mother-in-law from hell?.... What if Heather knows Victor is being kept at Ferncliff and blackmails Ewen into letting her go?
More "goodies" to sift through, I see. Thanks Sassy!...
***Here's a few things from the rumorville section on GHH. ( I have found her to be pretty accurate in the past)
Rumorville: Olivia becomes the mother in law from hell.
Connie betrays Sonny.
Jason can't let go of his suspicions regarding Ewen.
After a time, Patrick notes some issues with Ewen as well.
Jax is clued into Ewen and shares what he knows with Jason, who in turn informs Liz.
Scott Baldwin is (finally) on his way back to Port Charles. (Expect him to be involved with Heather Webber.)
Trey fears Sonny's suspicions.
Against all odds, Johnny keeps Todd's secret.
Jason and John have no choice but to work together.
Robert Scorpio may pop up again this fall to aid Anna and Luke in dealing with an old enemy and in their search for Robin.
***Can I just say "Squeeeeeee!" to Scott Baldwin returning!!!
I have always liked Scotty.
Thanks ahanshew. Glad to see that KiSh and TR will be back. Putting Scott Baldwin with Heather is gonna be interesting. They messed up letting TR go off canvas in such a sloppy manner. Hopefully they will rectify that slip shod exit...
And Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee to Robert returning!
Some very cool drops from DD:
I bet heather working with AJ to ruin Jason's life!
aJ could be like a son for a son
That would be awesome!
A son for a son, a wife for a wife. You are too smart for this place TF. And because you are Tracy's connection to Joe Jr. Is through the Soleitos
I think a bunch of villains are working together Helena Kerry some old enemy of Anna and Robert
Heather and Alison
Add in Alcazar, AJ and Faison and you are correct
BTW Lucky and Robert are already well infiltrated in this story, just off screen
How is Franco messing over Jerry when Jerry is the one who injects Joss and Alexis? Jerry seems to know exactly what he's giving them and doing to them.
Because he thinks he is giving them an immunization which he is not. Damn.
I am not sure Franco would have anything to do with this. It seems they have forgotten Franco.
Because it is not really FRANCO. Franco is dead. Franco was a puppet. Does not mean they don't use his dead ass to mislead the residents. What is so hard to grasp about what I am saying. If I tell you Jason has a threesome with samizdat will some pay attention.
They will be onscreen I am just telling you both are already woven in
Laugh away but it is obvious this board only wants info on couples when this story has zip to do with couples. HNY spilled the whole thing gor those smart enough to figure it out. When "Franco" sends his message in two weeks laugh away and remember why you have no insiders any longer.
Can you share info on any other stories?
It is all one big fucking story. There are no separate little stories coming up. They are all connected, all related and all interwoven.
Fine Liason picnic in the park while McBam decorate the nursery and Skate argue over lilacs or roses on the altar and Lante fight about baby names. I know that seems to be what needs to be spoiled here.
Thanks Supramom. Really would love to see Lucky back in some capacity, even without a "romance" factor. And if he's got a connection with Robert coming on again, even better! Bummed about Jerry injecting Josslyn. She's his niece for cryin' out loud! Whether or not it's an "immunization". Sometimes, as with the baby switch, I wish they wouldn't use the children (especially the youngest), as interchangeble pawns...
Nancy Lee Grahn @NancyLeeGrahn
The minute I return I go on location for GH. with just me and 5 hot hunks. Who died and went to heaven. I guess it's me!
Ooh, sounds intriguing! Maybe when we see her on screen, she'll have sprouted wings! Should we try to guess who the hunks are? Random or current cast members? LOL! Thanks maxsmom...
Swan, I just cant imagine the scenario other than a fantasy but I am intrigued.
GENERAL HOSPITAL SPOILERS/CASTING CHANGES:
- Don't think Jerry is the 'Mastermind.' Far from it. Think Villains, good evil soapy villains.
- Franco is used as a facade for something so much larger later fall.
- Contrary to rumors/spoilers, Melissa Archer isn't a part of GH. Story drops for Fall/early Winter show no immediate sign of a Natalie sighting.
- John's MAJOR story this fall revolves mainly around Tea and Sam. After the baby is found alive and well, McBain starts sniffing around "FRANCO's" Resurfacing. Heavy on the " " marks.
- Apparently, from what I hear, McBain/Sam go nowhere. Not hearing the same for Liz/Jason. No word on whether JaSam divorce is final. Hearing yes, and then possible reunion later.
- Nathin Butler out. Almost confirmed.. leaves in a body bag September/ October/November. Elizabeth definitely finding out about Ewen/Jerry and kidnapped.
- Elizabeth injected with a different drug of choice by Jerry
- Scully story extending indefinitely. Jan-March end?
- The Nurses Ball moved back.
- Someone is rescued later in the fall from a dangerous plot.
- Robin Mattson (Heather) NOT leaving GH. I've got story drops for Nov-Dec
- Anna and Luke run into trouble soon, putting both of their lives in danger. Apparently, both get close to finding Robin, but never do.
- Story drops for Robin rescue in December.
- Rumors float around JT (Patrick) leaving after Robin is rescued.Both ride away into the sunset together. We forget easily Kimberly McCullough LEFT GH to do OTHER things. Not for a Publicity stunt. She was lured back JUST for this inevitable story.
- Story locked down tight for Sonny/Kate wedding. Just too many twisted stories. Hearing Brenda, Kate's possible 3rd personality, Joe Jr. threaten to ruin the wedding. It's been confirmed that the wedding is AFTER Kate learns Trey is her son.
- Referred to Above Mentioned: Stories change. Hearing a lot of rewritten story telling with Trey/Kate/Joe/Sonny and co.
- Alexis/Shawn pairing after Alexis' current dilemma.
- Honestly have NOT heard anything on Maxie, Spinelli. Except that they are paired once more when KS returns.
- No drops on Kristina Wagner (Felicia) or John York (Mac.) Wagner already left GH, is what I've heard. Needed a filler story to block out Mac/Felicia.
- Merry Band of Vets returning before Holiday Season. I've heard everyone from Robert, to Scott, to Edward, and to Ned.
- Currently working on Genie Francis' return to GH before April Anniversary. Valentini plans on pulling as MANY as he can before the Anniversary. Unclear, however, Carlivati has stated that he writes the stories and depends on Frank to get the actors.
- I do know the Quartermaine story arch for Fall-Winter was/is currently been/being reworked. Apparently, major Monica story was being written. Although rumored, unsure of when/if Edward will even fit in.
That's it folks! Happy rest of the Summer to all, enjoy! ~ Carson
Thanks CarsonGH. Not thrilled about the "Scully story extending indefintely". Nothing against RS, EV et al. Just. Enough. It's old. Keeping my fingers crossed for GF to get back where she belongs...
Agreed!! Swan! I want Luke & Laura and Robert & Anna!!
And I am glad that Alexis is going to get her some, but Sean?? He is sooo boring! Now bring back Ric or Ned and we've got ourselves a ballgame!
Part of the reason I want GF back is the curiosity factor that involves how RC/FV will rectify (if possible), the horrendous writing that had Luke rejecting an entire segment of his life with Laura. (Not to mention Jake's death.) Sure that gave AG some majorly dramatic material to chew on but at what cost to the charcters that "lived" that particular history? Same goes for JJ coming back, even if it's only to "close" the loop of his relationship with Liz so that she can move on to a new pairing, if that's what is in the cards, or if it turns into a full blown reconciliation. As for Robert and Anna, absolutely but they're gonna have to get past the deception about Ethan which will be quite "soapy". Getting RiHe back as Ric would be an added bonus too as there's a lot of story for them to explore with Molly, to say nothing about unfinished business with Alexis...
Once again, AGREED!!
I'm not interesting in an extended Joe Scully storyline. I haven't heard a soul who likes that story. Don't know why they have to keep him around. There are other characters they can focus on.
I really hope that Genie Francis is coming back to "GH". It would be exciting how Ron would write her. And right, there are so many unresolved things between Laura & Luke. This is just something the show can't pass on.
Doesn't Genie have like a three year contract with Y&R though?
Even if she does, that doesn't mean anything in this day and age. There are loopholes in contracts, if TPTB wants someone out they can get it done.
If the tiic at Y&R want her out, sure they can do that. But why would they release her from her contract, in order to go back to GH?
It may not be that cut and dry. Frank Valentini has stated he isn't interested in bringing Genie back to GH, saying that "their cast is solid at the moment". Of course, that was before the announcement of JFP coming to Y&R. GH's 50th anniversary is coming up and I am hoping they will get Genie back for at least that.
At Y&R's end, Sony is the one who ultimately decides who stays and who goes. I'm not really sure how Sony feels about GF. I know MAB loved her and lobbied to get her in, and on the other hand, JFP hates her and vice-versa.
Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see GF on GH. I've only recently started watching GH, within the last year or two, so I'd love to see the legendary Laura on the show, especially with the way things have been going as of late.
I just don't see how it makes sense from Sony's business POV to let one of their actors go to a rival show, helping to boost that show's ratings.
Well, I agree, but at the same time, from a SOAP business standpoint, I wouldn't want ANY MORE soaps to die, b/c that's one step closer to MY soap dying. And if I am not going to utilize an actress/a character, then I would let him/her go.
Don't shoot the messenger for this somewhat 'surprising' spoiler. My sources tell me that the 'GIGANTIC surprise' that Frank Valentini has been teasing us with is Vanessa Marcil- soon to be not- Giovanazzo's return on the Monday, August 27th episode of GH as Brenda Barrett. Although nothing is 100% confirmed...
Thanks CarsonGH. Count me as one who, if this comes to pass, will not be thrilled if she returns. Like MB's bully I've never been enamored of her character. VM(soon to be minus the G), is an attractive woman but that's about where it ends for me. I've never thought that her Brenda would have inspired any man to throw himself at her feet. Honestly, she's always struck me as a silly adolescent. Finding her son, Alec, forced her to grow up to an extent. We shall see...
That WOULD be a pretty bad-ass get on Cartini's part!!
I have been wanting them to bring her back to rectify the pure CRAP! that Guza did to the character her last visit.
My wish: I want her & JAX to be together, MARRIED (though not really since Carly never signed the divorce papers!), and raising Alec together (turns out Alec is really his son). So both Sonny & Carly's heads would explode!!!!
Would also explain his absence from his daughter's life. And it would ensure that Sonny would never try to kill Jax again (b/c he wouldn't want to hurt Brenda like that again).
So, will the surprise return actually stay?? My guess is that clinic is holding a lot of 'dead' people. That's what makes me think this is NOT Brenda.
I will never understand why Guza did not capitalize on Sonny/Brenda/Jax triangle with Carly's head spinning like Linda Blair. Alec still could have been Brenda/Jax's son without pulling the Balkan or Dante into the story.
Agreed Laison4real, the same way I could never understand why Guza didn't do a PROPER love triangle with liason & jasam. Ratings gold both of those triangles would have been!
Jake is dead, Liz have 2 other kids also. Jiz is one of the most weird looking couples in daytime soaps. They have nothing. Mcsam is the hotest thing and just like LuSam,McSam will make Jiz look like they already do, weird. Jiz failed before and they will again, simply because Liz can't do couples. Actually she should have been gone and they should have kept Shovon and Lucky. Actually Liz and Jason need to go whereever their fangurl is, and take the bais and chaeting with them. GH will be a better soap to watch.
Miry,,,RC has managed to give the men and women on GH pairing options without ignoring the other fan bases. For example, Carly/Jax/Johnny/Todd, Liz/Jason/Ewen, Sam/Jason/John, Lulu/Dante/Johnny, Starr/Michael/Trey, Tracy/Joe Jr/Luke, Luke/Anna/Tracy, and has finally matured Sonny/Carly to the point where they have moved on from their habitual ONS!
As Jamey stated on the DC pod casts, it made absolutely no sense in the world to make Liz and Sam's friends after the Jakenapping stuff, because soaps are made of rivals and frenemies. Instead of capitalizing on Liason vs JaSam from 2008 onward, GH just shut it all down with a big ass whimper.
One of my favorite all time rivals/frenemies is Dorian and Viki on OLTL.
Liason - I could not have said it better. I have really enjoyed how RC has really catered to all of the fan bases. Instead of once a year, the Liason fans are enjoying weekly encounters! I'm just biding my time until Jason and Liz hit the sack again. LOL
I remember reading about a joint PA with SBu and RH, where SBu talked about bringing on Liason NOP 2, NOP3, NOP4, etc!
Yes, I really love what Ron is doing in that regard as well!!
You really have to try to cater to ALL the fanbases for a little bit of time at least.
When RC wrote for OLTL, we always saw John sharing scenes with one of his exes (Blair, Marty, Kelly, Natalie, Vangie, Mo, Curly, Larry,,,)etc, and the same for Clint with Viki, Dorian, Echo and Nora. Bo shared scenes with Nora, and whatever ex happened to be on the show at the time (Lyndsay, Alex, etc). There is no reason why exes can't share scenes even IF the pairing is no longer romantic.
EXACTLY!! That is definitely where Guza dropped the ball/failed miserably!
I mean, that is why we freakin' watch soaps!! To see the characters interact with each other, ESPECIALLY the ones that already have a history!
There should have been scenes of Jason through the years with his exes Robin and Liz, because he was always around Carly and Sam. There are still JnR fans out there, who would have liked seeing Jason and Robin share more than one scene a year.
Sonny should not be limited to sharing scenes with Kate, but with Alexis, Carly, Olivia, Sam, Brenda, etc, because the man does have a ton of history with those women, and shared a baby with most of them! Has Sonny spoken to Sam about their baby that died eight years ago? Does he even remember getting Sam pregnant?
Patrick is sitting around waiting on Robin to come back permanently into his life, when the man should have had at least one or two exes (not crazy ass Lisa) that he's sharing benefits with and then wham! along comes Robin and he's caught between his future and his past. Now that is soapy!
Spinelli has had one love interest in six years! WTH? Liz has not had sex since RH was pregnant two years ago! Alexis has not had sex since she was paired with Jerry back in 2008. Jeez. Guza really dropped the ball.
Oh, I know about those JnR fans (J&R 4EVA!!!!!!!), hehe, I am one of them!
I always hoped that SHE would be his end-game. She IS the only one that he has EVER left the mob for!!
But yeah, once again we are on the same page. All these ex's should have been allowed to interact more than a couple of times a year!
Have folks seen this?
Exclusive: Steve Burton Quits General Hospital
The article was taken down. I just don't like this...
Here it is
Copy & paste plz, b/c the links do not work.
Here are a few things from GHH on the rumorville page:
Rumorville: Jerry faked Robin's death per Duke's request.
Duke and Jerry aren't the real perpetrators.
Alexis kills Jerry to save Shawn.
Kate remembers more about Connie and Johnny's conversation.
Joe Jr does something heroic.
Trey has another secret.
Molly thinks her world is ending..
Rumorville: Was that an anvil dropping the other day when Lulu said she was relieved with everything going on that she was not really pregnant? And if she does later discover that she has been pregnant all along, what effect would the exposure to the pathogen and its cure have on the developing fetus? Would Dante and Lulu see eye to eye on how to proceed?
John and Sam's past connection may be related to a very early storyline of Sam's.
Maxie may not be too pleased when Patrick and Emma become fond of the new "nanny".
Will Robin have reason to deliberately stay away from her family?
The newest addition to the PCPD will have Jason in his sights.
Jason may be set up to pay the piper for Franco's murder.
Who took the pictures of John and Sam kissing on the docks in July? Its not who you think.
When Sam's baby is returned...will all be revealed to all parties involved?
Thanks ahanshew. Lots of "goodies" to sift through. And a very realistic item for D&L should they bring it to pass. Something that touches/has touched many lives in the real world. Should they go with it, my hope is that they will approach the situation with balance and sensitivity as they did with L's abortion story previously. That had me bawling buckets. (Grain of salt as per usual.) Alexis killing Jerry? Sounds pretty Cassadine if they have her go through with it. I'm a little bothered by a new cop coming. It's been such a relief not to hear the name Franco for awhile. Is this to help usher SBu off the canvas? Sounds a bit lame but that's me. Enjoy what's left of your holiday, all...
Speaking of Lulu's abortion, did she ever tell Dante? I remember them approaching the topic, but I just can't remember the outcome. (I bawled buckets too!!)
Sending Jason to jail honestly makes the most sense. I would rather him regain his Q memories and ride off on his bike in to the sunset, but I am fairly certain I won't get that wish. I DO NOT want him killed off.
