General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that GH fans are very worked up about the possibility of a big Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil) return to the show. It all started on Twitter very recently, when Vanessa Marcil, who portrayed Brenda Barrett on the ABC soap, responded to a disparaging tweet that someone made about the character of Brenda.
Brenda last appeared on GH in a guest role in April 2013 when her character returned to Rome after attempting to get back together with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).
Well, in response to a nostalgia tweet about Brenda’s 2010-2011 run on GH, a fan replied by saying: “I love Maurice…never was a fan of Brenda. I was glad to see her go.”
The fan tagged both Vanessa and Maurice in the tweet, and in response, Vanessa retweeted the remark about her character with the following reply: “I’ve got some bad news for ya,” along with a smiley face.
Vanessa’s reply has caused a firestorm on Twitter, with loads of fans retweeting, liking, and commenting on her response to the fan. Many have taken her comment as an indication that the character of Brenda Barrett may be returning to GH.
One person replied excitedly: “OMG Vanessa, I hope that means you’re coming back. Been waiting for so long.”
And someone else commented: “Wait what? I would 1000% watch again for Brenda. Time to come home #BringBrendaBack.” Finally, someone said: “I sure hope you have bad news for them, and terrific news for us Brenda fans. I would love to see you back at GH, to stay, showing them what Brenda is all about. Taking what belongs to you, you bring excitement when you come. You and Sonny can set the world on fire.”
We should note that Vanessa Marcil’s statement comes right about the same time that GH’s Executive Producer Frank Valentini promised a big surprise that will occur in the first few moments of GH’s episode to air on Monday, August 3rd, which is GH’s first episode back after the coronavirus shutdown.
In fact, GH even put out a promo with showing Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and Donnell Turner (Curtis Ashford) speaking briefly about the big surprise.
“Don’t DVR it, don’t wait for later. Watch it live, or risk being spoiled,” Steve says in the promo, with Donnell chiming in, “Can’t say we didn’t warn you!”
So clearly, something big is going to go down early on during Monday’s GH episode – could Vanessa have been signaling that it could be Brenda’s return? Monday’s official spoilers don’t give any indication that this will be the case, but clearly something’s up, so viewers will have to watch and see.
Given the enormous response that Vanessa’s tweet got from excited fans, we suspect there will be a lot of people tuning in tomorrow for GH’s first episode back after the break.
