  • So glad Lucy is returning. She was always a lot of fun to watch. Same with the Nurses’ Ball. Wonder if tradition will stand and Lucy will end the ball in her underwear?

    • I watched Port Charles before I started watching GH. Can someone tell me if those stories will be part of, for example, Lucy’s history? I like both shows and I’m willing to accept it as two separate entities as long as I don’t have to wonder if anyone is turning into a vampire. Lol

      • When PC first started there was more cohesion between storylines on each soap. But the vampire/werewolf storylines have never translated over to GH. The only thing that will probably carry over are her relationships with Kevin, Serena, and Christina.

  • I love how they reintroduced the Nurses’ Ball through Emma and yay Lucy is back.

  • Yay!! Kiefer and Anne together again! Can’t wait, only hope that maybe she can be recurring character. Her and Martin would make great couple, I know that’s not where they are taking Martin right now but it wuld be great fun if they did.

  • Would it be neat,if they actually bring back Jimmy Lee Holt, you know,Edward’s bastard son, and Monica’s love interest? Or better still why not, Grant and Cecilla Andrews, or even Grant Putman???Remember them???
