Where Has Laura Been?

PartyCrasher.jpg

Genie Francis made her long-awaited return to GENERAL HOSPITAL today when her alter ego, Laura, crashed Luke and Tracy's engagement party. Laura's return to Port Charles is a big deal, not only forGH fans, but also for those in the former Mrs. Spencer's life. We'll help you catch up on what led to her exit two years ago and where she has been since!

Back in 2013, Laura and Scotty were newlyweds of only a month when a hospitalized Luke received a mysterious package containing a DVD. It featured a frightening message from the grave: Helena Cassadine had been poisoning him with a deadly toxin (discovered later to be Polonium 210), and there was a shrinking window of time to save his life! The year before, Jerry Jacks had poisoned the Port Charles water supply with the toxin and was in possession of the counteragent at the time of his presumed death in an explosion on the docks. Luke was convinced that Jerry was still alive and vowed to track him down.

Scott begged Laura to drop her concerns for Luke, which led to a major a blow-out between the couple. Tracy finally caved and admitted everything to Laura, and the women discussed how they would find Luke... and how Scotty would feel about it! Scotty, ultimately, gave Laura his blessing to go search for Luke. Laura's plan to revive Deception Cosmetics with Lucy was put on the back burner while Laura ran off to find her ex.

But upon Luke and Laura's return to Port Charles, her short marriage to Scotty was beyond repair. Although she promised that she was 100 percent in their marriage, he begged to differ, and wanted a divorce. As he saw it, Luke would always come first with her. "I can't be that guy going 15 rounds to get you to love me the way I love you, and I think that you are also tired of me being that guy," he told her.

Moments later, Laura got a call from her doctors in Paris, who wanted her to return for her yearly wellness evaluation. Laura wanted to stay with Lulu to help with her newborn baby, but Lulu insisted her mother take care of herself first. With that, Laura kissed her family good-bye and left.

Erin Opens Up About Her Crazy Past!

HayleyErin.jpg GENERAL HOSPITAL is just what the doctor ordered for Hayley Erin! She was at a time and place in her life when she was questioning her future, wondering what path she should take. Then, like a gift from above, she got the answer she was looking for when she booked the role of Kiki Jerome on the ABC soap.

Erin sat down with Soaps In Depth and opened up about her string of bad luck before getting her GH gig. Thankfully, her luck turned around with GH, and she's as happy as a clam, not just with Kiki but also with the direction the character's love life is taking!

"Kiki has rediscovered her feelings for Morgan, for sure," she tells In Depth. "When she was with Michael, I don't think she was thinking about Michael. My personal take on it was she was fully invested in her relationship with Michael at that point because there were still feelings there for Morgan. Now that she's been able to clear her mind and things have settled down, she's where she belongs. Michael wouldn't be good for her now. He's not good for himself. Morgan has stepped up to the plate."

Luke's Sons Are Coming Home!

JacksonGearyParsons.jpg

The familiar faces continue to roll on in, as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Anthony Geary prepares to exit his iconic role of Luke Spencer! Following the announcements that two of Luke's past loves, Laura (Genie Francis) and Holly (Emma Samms), will be returning to help Geary wrap up his 37-year run comes confirmation from ABC that Luke's sons will also be stopping by! Jonathan Jackson's Lucky and Nathan Parsons' Ethan are set to be a part of the story that will, undoubtedly, go down in soap history!

"When I left the first time in 1999, I was always completely open to coming back because it's like a family," Jackson recently told Soaps In Depth while on hiatus from his hot primetime show, NASHVILLE, and as he prepares for a concert tour. "Even when I left a few years ago, it was never something that I felt I was closing the door on. It's never been a negative thing, either. Both times I left was just to do some other things."

Parsons, meanwhile, told In Depth a few months ago about a promise he had made to fans that if Luke were to leave, he'd love to return as Ethan to send Geary off. "I've talked to Tony about that," Parsons shared at the time. "I think that would be an almost perfect ending. There's no perfect way to end such a legacy, but I think it would be nice to sort of symbolically kind of welcome him on and usher him onto the next thing."

Keep an eye open in an upcoming ABC issue of In Depth for further details!

New On-Line Soap Network Coming Soon!

SudsvilleLogo.jpg

Later this fall, there will be a new Web site completely dedicated to daytime fans! Veteran soap scribe Meg Kelly (who has written for AS THE WORLD TURNS and DAYS OF OUR LIVES) and entertainment marketing pro Joseph Craig have partnered with Conklin-Intracom to create SudsvilleTV.com.

Kelly tells Soaps In Depth that both she and Craig believe "that you can deliver a strong production for not a ton of money. If it's well-written, well-acted and smartly produced, you can deliver high-end entertainment."

To that end, SudsvilleTV plans to offer more than a dozen shows when the channel launches in late October. "I've created 16 shows for our new network, all 10 episodes each and a lot of fun," shares Craig, who has experience as both a movie and Broadway producer. "We have two game shows, a talk show called A.M. SUDSVILLE that will be three times a week, and then a mix of reality and improv shows. They are all themed around things that our soap audience really loves."

Craig adds that they are in the midst of casting all of the shows now, including a 40-episode series that Kelly is penning. Starting today, fans can sign up at www.sudsvilletv.com to get alerts about the upcoming programs -- including exclusive casting news and previews! "We're very excited about it," says Kelly, promising that there will be some familiar faces from the world of daytime attached to the SudsvilleTV shows, like GUIDING LIGHT fan favorite Michael O'Leary (Rick), who will be hosting THE AMAZING SOAP TRIVIA CHALLENGE game show! "We want to take soap operas to the next place."

Once fans have signed up, they will get alerts to all new Sudsville developments, as they happen: casting, special previews, interviews from the sets, behind the scenes footage. And fans will also be able to enter contests to win great prizes! You can also follow SudsvilleTV on Facebook and Twitter.

Who Is Dillon?

DillonTracy.jpg

Tracy's son, Dillon, returned to GENERAL HOSPITAL today! Need a refresher course on the character's history? Read on.

Dillon's childhood was anything but ordinary. He spent a large chunk of those early years gallivanting the globe with his mom. Tracy's relationship with her wealthy family was never warm and fuzzy, so Dillon became her mischievous travelling companion. Many years later, when he was a teenager, she dropped him off at the Quartermaine's door and let him fend for himself!

Dillon's devil-may-care attitude and zany sense of humor was endearing to some (like Georgie) and annoying to others, like his grandfather Edward, who threatened to ship him off to military school if he didn't shape up! Dillon and Georgie quickly became a couple, a notion that his mother Tracy and her Uncle Mac abhorred. It didn't help much when the teen started doing odd jobs for one of PC's known mobsters, Lorenzo Alcazar. Tracy found a way to kill two birds with one stone -- she'd see to it that Dillon quit his job if (and only if) Georgie broke up with him.

Heartbroken by Georgie's rejection, Dillon lost his virginity to Alcazar's niece, Sage... which Georgie, naturally, walked in on! Eventually, the young lovers reunited and, after a series of humorous mishaps, Dillon and Georgie finally consummated their relationship.

Together, they survived Georgie's near-fatal fall, a campus stalker and a deadly virus that came very close to taking Dillon's life. As he lay weak and presumably dying in a hospital bed, he and Georgie were married. Their love led to his recovery. But there was still the threat of Tracy. She was not thrilled with her son's choice of brides, so she cut him off financially. The newlyweds were forced to move into a cheap room above Kelly's... next door to the town thug, Diego Alcazar.

Meanwhile, Lulu had developed feelings for her stepbrother and made it her mission to break up his marriage. She told Dillon that she had seen Georgie and Diego having sex in the Quartermaine boathouse. (Shocker: Lulu lied!) Acting out, Dillon impulsively slept with Lulu. Although Dillon and Georgie were still madly in love and married, they were both so badly hurt and angry that they divorced. Just as they began to find their way back to each other, Lulu found out she was pregnant with Dillon's child. Lulu was ecstatic; Dillon, not so much. She ended up having an abortion.

Dillon confessed his feelings for Lulu, but he wasn't the only young gentleman after her affection. Among her suitors were Spinelli, Milo, and Scotty's son, Logan. Around that time, Ned told his kid brother that he had arranged for him to assist his favorite director on a movie shooting in Hollywood. It was Dillon's dream job, but he didn't want to leave behind his mother or Lulu. Dillon's heart was again left broke when Lulu said that she and Logan were dating. With that, Dillon packed up and headed for Tinseltown. When he later returned, he learned that Georgie had been murdered at the hands of the Text Message Killer, the man both he and Georgie knew as Diego.

GH's Ainsworth Goes Back To School!

LexiAinsworthHS.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Lexi Ainsworth (ex-Kristina) is headed back to high school for her appearance in The CW's drama, iZOMBIE. "I play this girl named Tate," Ainsworth says of the Tuesday, June 2, episode titled "Dead Rat Live Rat Brown Rat White Rat." "My friend gets eaten by a zombie, but I don't really know what happened."

Look for the actress to share scenes with the lead character, Liv Moore (Rose McIver), a medical resident who's hiding that she's become a zombie by working in the coroner's office and solving murders. "I'm this ditzy cheerleader, and she interviews me and asks questions about my friend," Ainsworth reveals. "It's supposed to be that I'm serious, but it comes across as being funny."

The actress had such a great time on the set that she's eager to find out whether her character can return. "That's what they are discussing," Ainsworth confides. "The show definitely wants to bring me back, so they just have to figure out how and when."
