Per the promo on Friday, soap vet Ilene Kristen will appear on ‘General Hospital’ this week. Longtime fans of the actress loved her as Delia Ryan on ‘Ryan’s Hope.’ And since Sam and Dr. Clay are headed to a bar called ‘Ryan’s’ odds are Kristen is reprising that role.
Also coming up – the return of Jacklyn Zeman as Bobbie Spencer. Zeman shared the news last week on Twitter –
'Just received my scripts 4 Bobbie’s return to GH Thank you, Thank you. Am excited, very happy,’ the actress tweeted.
Fans are buzzing about the possible upcoming story involving Bobbie. Some wonder if it somehow relates to Alexis’ recent request for Lucas’ DNA. We know by now that Lucas and Sam are siblings fathered by Julian Jerome.
There is no official first air date for Zeman, but word is that she will return soon.
Speaking of returns, Kin Shriner (Scott) is back and he recently spoke with TV Guide’s Michael Logan about his upcoming story.
On his character’s recent divorce from his long-time love Laura (Genie Francis), Shriner said:
‘It's too painful for him to constantly be 'the other guy.' That breakup scene with Genie was probably the hardest one I've ever played. Scott has been obsessed with that woman since he was 16. I guess he just gave up.’

Finally, Michael Saucedo will reprise the role of Juan Santiago. Fans remember Juan as Emily’s first love and the son of Lily and Miguel. Word is that Juan is also the cousin of Nurse Sabrina Santiago. Saucedo is the husband of ‘GH’ vet and fan favorite Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth).
‘General Hospital’ airs weekdays at 2pm on Detroit’s local ABC affiliate WXYZ Channel 7.
