Earlier today a fan tweeted, "@JohnStamos @carlivatiron @valentinifrank #BringBlackieBack #GH," which attracted the attention of the intended parties, but the responses themselves were the least expected of all. Stamos, who portrayed Blackie Parrish on ABC's "General Hospital" in the 1980's replied to the tweet and said, "Sociopathic! You don't remember [the] phone call in @valentinifrank office?" As confusing as the tweet appeared, it became less confusing when "GH" head writer Ron Carlivati responded to Stamos' tweet with, "Yes, I remember it well. But for some reason you seem determined to rewrite the narrative."
