It’s been months since we last saw The Jackal aka Damien Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) in Port Charles, but new “General Hospital” spoilers reveal that The Jackal will be back this fall. Here’s what you need to know about this juicy return of one of GH fans’ favorite characters.
#1 Spinelli won’t be back to stay
Bradford Anderson has other obligations so he’s back as The Jackal for just a week or so. He just landed a plum role on the new FOX series Minority Report (based on the Tom Cruise movie of the same name). Plus he’s busy being a husband and dad and playing in his band Port Chuck.
#2 Spinelli is back for a purpose
Spinelli’s return is all about the Jake Doe (Billy Miller) reveal. Rumors have swirled for months that Spinelli would reveal Jason Morgan’s identity at the Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) wedding, but that was not accurate. The Jackal will be involved with the reveal, though.
#3 Spinelli will be back for sweeps
Soaps typically tape six to eight weeks in advance, so that puts Spinelli on schedule for a November sweeps appearance which will coincide with the slated reveal of Jake as Jason Morgan at long, long last. The reveal, though, will be a fait accompli for many Port Charles residents that already know.
#4 Spinelli is back to help Jason
Rumor has it that Damien Spinelli’s role in the big Jason reveal is to help the Quartermaine turned killer to recover some of his memories. Jake will have known for weeks, at that point, that he’s really Jason but didn’t reveal that he knew to others. The Jackal will help Jake remember his life as Jason.
#5 Spinelli may not bring the baby
Of course when we see Spinelli in Port Charles, we expect him to have baby Georgie Spinelli (Harper Rose Barash) with him, but this time he may come solo without the baby and Ellie Trout (Emily Wilson). This visit is all about The Jackal reuniting and bonding with Stone Cold. Woo hoo!
For those who can’t wait for November to see Bradford Anderson, check him out on FOX’s Minority Report on Monday, September 21 at 9 pm. Also, check out the adorable video below of Bradford Anderson promoting the Port Chuck Fantasy Weekend on October 27 in New York. Look for one of Bradford’s baby daughters bounding around the background while her dad makes the video.
If you haven’t seen them yet, Port Chuck is a sexy boy band comprised of ex-Ghers and includes Steve Burton (the former Jason Morgan), Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara), Scott Reeves (Steven Webber) and, of course, Bradford Anderson (Damien Spinelli).
