( — As we previously reported, TV Guide Magazine is confirming that Erin Torpey will be making a final guest appearance in Llanview this fall, in an unknown role.

General HospitalJuly PreVUE
It was June 8 when newly appointed "General Hospital" head writer Garin Wolf previewed to TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan that "sometimes they come back" in reference to what fans can expect from his tenure as the shows top scribe. Since then word broke that Leslie Charleson would be returning to the soap as Dr. Monica Quartermaine nearly a year after being placed on recurring status, but never seen or used since. Also expected to return in recurring capacities are Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine) and Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks), who were both fired while under the Robert Guza Jr. dictated writing regime. Also showing their face for a lengthier stay than originally thought, and in a recurring capacity, is Constance Towers whose Helena Cassadine is finding herself a new boy toy after many years of lacking a 3 dimensional personality, the return of Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) and more Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliott).
"What Are You Talking About?" has been a running joke with fans of "General Hospital," who have noticed Brenda Barrett Corinthos saying this exact line to a character in nearly every episode, but now we'll soon never have to hear it again (at least for now) as portrayer Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo's final airdate has been set after it was finally confirmed on Tuesday, June 7 that the actress would be departing the ABC daytime drama series after months of rumors. Marcil Giovinazzo filmed her last scenes on Thursday, June 9.
