General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that more cast changes are in the works. We’ll be seeing a few new faces in Port Charles, but could we see the return of a fan favorite as well? An intriguing blind item has GH fans excited about that possibility.
According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, one show plans on asking a soap vet to go back on contract. This could be about any of the four daytime dramas, so there are certainly some options here. However, Genie Francis (Laura) is the vet that General Hospital viewers are hoping for. Her abrupt firing left many GH watchers outraged.
Ever since Francis was bumped to recurring and written out, fans have been tweeting plenty of support for her. Frank Valentini, GH’s executive producer, has definitely been getting his fair share of angry messages. Some of these messages have hundreds of retweets. It’s clear that fans weren’t happy with the news and the fury hasn’t died truly died down.
Some viewers have even vowed to boycott the ABC soap until GH fixes their mistake. Could General Hospital indeed correct this major blunder? It wouldn’t be the first time fan pressure changed the minds of execs. Letting Francis go was a bad move anyway, but the fact that they didn’t in the middle of her big story made it even worse.
General Hospital spoilers say Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Ned (Wally Kurth) will get the results of the election soon, so it sounds like the show wants to hurry this storyline along. The election serves as a grim reminder of how Francis was treated. Port Charles will get another mayor for now, but they could always make changes if Francis returns.
Laura would arguably make a much better mayor than either of the current candidates. Ned’s too full of himself and doesn’t seem to care enough about the people of PC. As for Alexis, she’s got so many skeletons in her closet that it’s tough to believe she’s even running. Laura is the leader that Port Charles needs!
GH could always use another scandal to force the newly elected mayor out and ultimately put Laura in office. Of course, they’ve got to put her back on canvas first! Do you think the blind item we mentioned is a good sign? We’ll give you updates as other details emerge.
