When news first hit the web in August 2012 of Duke Lavery being very much alive on ABC’s “General Hospital,” it not only became a trending topic in the United States on Twitter, but also worldwide. Nearly three years later, it looks like the character will be heading back to the grave as portrayer Ian Buchanan is said to have recently learned that the writers have plans to off the character once more. It would be a huge mistake on their part as it would defeat the entire purpose of resurrecting the character in the first place.
When history is re-created to tell a new tale on a daytime soap opera some of us can’t help but groan at the mere thought, especially when history is mined by use of re-created flashback scenes. Sure, we love that stories continue day-to-day, but ultimately we don’t expect it to truly have much impact in today’s storied world. As “General Hospital” celebrated its 52nd anniversary earlier today, with re-created flashback scenes with several of its current cast playing yesterday’s important characters, one can’t help but be amazed at how far we’ve come in our quest for drama on screen, be it scripted or reality. The lack of shootouts, sex scenes, romantic triangles, catfights, or whatever passes for drama today, took a back seat to character driven story.
Actress and author Dee Wallace has joined the cast of ABC’s “General Hospital” as Patricia Spencer, the long-lost older sister of Luke and Bobbie Spencer (Anthony Geary and Jacklyn Zeman), Soap Opera Network has confirmed.

What? Johnny’s back this week?!” tweeted Barash shortly after the promo was released.
