The last time General Hospital viewers saw Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner) in Port Charles, the lovable WBS agent/singer was helping Felicia (Kristina Wagner) as their daughter Maxie (then played by Robyn Richards) battled Kawasaki syndrome. Eighteen years later, Wagner has returned home to the show that made him a household name. Access Hollywood was on the GH set to get the details on Frisco's return. Wagner revealed:

So he said, ‘Let’s make it Turkish prison.’ So, I’ve cleaned up since I’ve been back.
