The Nurses Ball is wrapping up this week on “General Hospital.” Fans are upset that Blackie Parrish will be making an appearance, but it won't be John Stamos on the stage. Last year when Stamos was approached to make a possible return as Blackie Parrish, he declined because he didn't feel like the offer would do the character justice. According to a May 9 report from We Love Soaps, when Lucy Coe introduces the character, Ronn Moss will be playing the role. Many long-time fans are disappointed that the writers would bring back the character but recast it.
On a more promising note, "Julexis" (Julian and Alexis) fans will get some pretty heavy scenes in the upcoming week. This couple has become a fan-favorite. Julian Jerome and Alexis Davis are the biological parents of Samantha Morgan, which makes their story even more appealing. Alexis hasn't been given a decent story line in quite some time, and now the writers have brought her back to the front with the Julian romance. Fans are excited about the possibilities with this couple.
Twitter has been buzzing with comments about everything from the performances at the Nurses Ball to the Blackie Parrish controversy. Many of the “General Hospital” actors have been commenting along with the fans. The performances have been spectacular. Several of the actors are great performers all the way around, including Kristen Alderson (Kiki) and Ryan Carnes (Lucas).
The upcoming week on “General Hospital” is going to be packed full of interesting events. Fans are looking forward to seeing Alexis' bedroom and more "Julexis" scenes. It will be interesting to see how Ronn Moss does in the role of Blackie Parrish and how much backlash it will cause. There will be some more scenes with Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) and Sean Blakemore (Shawn).
