Lorenzo Alcazar is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital, originated by actor Ted King, who previously played Lorenzo's deceased brother Luis Alcazar.

Lorenzo Alcazar was an International Arms Dealer, an intelligent and powerful man with ties to mob families and high-ranking government agencies that made him a formidable force in the town of Port Charles. Prior to joining the family business, arms-dealing, he was a History professor at Oxford University. Lorenzo originally entered Oxford as a student of law, until he became involved with an idealistic French woman named Sophie Germaine who wanted to save the world, and was tragically killed in a village by rebels while Lorenzo was helping his older brother Luis out after a deal went wrong. Lorenzo blamed himself for what transpired to Sophie, and abandoned his life in England to become part of the Alcazar family business.

Years later, Lorenzo came to Port Charles to avenge the death of his older brother, Luis Alcazar. Although he learned that Alexis Davis was the person responsible for his brother's death, he did not take revenge on her because she was a civilian. Rather, knowing that his brother's presence in Port Charles was due in part to resident mob boss Sonny Corinthos, he became a thorn in Corinthos’ side, trying to get Corinthos’ half-brother Ric Lansing to usurp the organization from his brother. Ric kidnapped Carly Corinthos before Courtney and Jason's wedding and held her in a panic room at his house. Alcazar found out about it and helped Ric conceal Carly for a while. Alcazar held her hostage himself for weeks as leverage over Sonny, whose pier he wanted to use to ship cocaine into Port Charles. While holding Carly, Lorenzo fell in love with her and began to undermine her marriage to Sonny wherever possible. Months later, Lorenzo was also in charge of raising his niece, Sage Alcazar, who came to Port Charles to avenge her father’s death. She moved to Port Charles permanently, but was later murdered at the Quartermaine mansion by Mary Bishop.

Lorenzo was once married to Carly Corinthos. Their romance began after she suffered a severe brain injury. This brain injury was due to a gunshot wound to the head caused by her husband Sonny Corinthos when Lorenzo Alcazar was helping her give birth to Morgan Stone Corinthos. The gunshot wound Sonny caused a rift in her relationship with Sonny Corinthos. While Carly was in a coma, Lorenzo gave her subliminal suggestions that she should love him and not Sonny. When Carly came out of her coma, she did not care about anything or anyone except Lorenzo. When Sonny saw her kissing Lorenzo, he left her. Subsequently, Sonny would take her sons away from her while she sought solace with Lorenzo, but she would return to Sonny for the sake of her children. After her divorce from Sonny, Carly later married Lorenzo. They divorced because of her obsession with Sonny, which caused her to have a mental breakdown and be committed to a resident mental hospital. He was later involved with Lois Cerullo Ashton, but this was a brief affair.

After Sage's death in 2005, Lorenzo found out that he had a son, Diego Alcazar by former lover Maria Sanchez, who originally thought Lorenzo died protecting her from would-be assassins in a dark alley. Despite Maria keeping the truth from him after learning that he was alive, he offered Maria and Diego a home, and wanted to be a part of his son’s life. Maria left amidst the murders of the Sandoval family by the Corinthos crime organization, where she witnessed Jason Morgan fleeing from the scene and Morgan discovering that she’d seen him. During this time, Lorenzo and Skye Chandler Quartermaine became involved when Lorenzo realized that his love for Carly would never be returned. After they spent one night together, she became pregnant, something she thought would never happened since she was told that she could not have children after a horrible car accident. They saw the child as a miracle.

Lorenzo tried to sway his son from a life of crime, but Diego's upbringing left him too emotionally damaged to be dissuaded away from the life his father tried to protect him from. Lorenzo had gone legit to give his family some semblance of a normal life and keep the dangerous lifestyle from everyone’s life, but his son’s troubles changed all that. Lorenzo went back to delivering weapon shipments to the U.S. government to protect his son from going back to prison, where he would have been killed by Manny’s people. Having been parolled from a ten-year sentence after ratting out a member of the Ruiz crime family, Diego's life was in danger, especially with Manny Ruiz still loose and gunning for the people who Lorenzo loved.

The war between Lorenzo and the Corinthos crime family began when Sonny and Jason took shipments that Alcazar was delivering to his government handlers to secure his son's freedom, despite knowing that Lorenzo only entered into the life to keep his son safe from the Ruiz organization. Despite Lorenzo's attempts to protect his son, Diego was apparently killed in 2006 by Sam McCall in a shoot-out between Alcazar's men and Jason Morgan, who was on the run with Sam when Ric and Lorenzo hired Damien Spinelli to cybernetically frame Sam for a crime she didn't commit. Many fans pointed out the similarity to when Jason Morgan framed Zander Smith for a crime Courtney Matthews committed and got away with, where Morgan and Matthews were treated like heroes while Alcazar was villainized for performing the same actions (GH fan correction: this was actually Brian Beck that framed Zander for shooting him, and not Jason. Brian did it to protect Courtney who he was in love with. However, both Jason and Ric agreed to depict Detective Capelli as Zander's murderer after the Port Charles Hotel fire—since Zander was supposedly already dead, at the hands of Elizabeth Webber, then married to Ric Lansing. Jason was very reluctant to do so with Ric as the DA, but Jason agreed because his sister Emily asked him). The apparent death of his son left Lorenzo heart-broken and he realized how dangerous "the business" could be, determined to make sure Lila Rae would never suffer the same fate as Diego. He was determined to end his association in arms-dealing for the government and return to a life of normalcy. (Despite his on-screen death, in November 2006, it was revealed that Diego was still alive and terrorizing Port Charles as the Text Message Killer, but it’s speculated that another villain, Ian, may have contributed to the loss of Diego’s sanity after his near-death experience.)

After the loss of several shipments he was handling from the U.S. government, Lorenzo went to Sonny's office (with a gun in hand) to prevent him from seizing an important shipment that would allow him to be free of his deal with the government, but Carly walked in allowing Sonny enough of a distraction to pull out a gun and shoot. Lorenzo was shot in the head and lived, but he suffered temporary selective amnesia. He had a couple of surgeries to correct the problems. As a result of his brain injury, he acted uncharacteristically, faking his amnesia to gain an advantage over his enemies, Sonny Corinthos (who he blamed for the death of his brother Luis Ramon Alcazar and Jason Morgan (who be cast blame for his part in the death of his son Diego Alcazar.) Corinthos, aided by Skye, sent Jason Morgan to kill Alcazar and was successful. Later episodes would bring up the possibility that Morgan doubted whether Alcazar was truly dead, implying that he may have set it up to have his enemies think they killed him.

Many fans feel that the past several months showed Alcazar acting uncharacteristically, with little to no emphasis given on Alcazar’s sudden change of focus (originally, he made a deal to protect his son knowing the dangers of the life of an arms-dealer, and suddenly it changed to wanting to use it to protect his family with no reason given). Like A.J. Quartermaine, Stefan Cassadine, and many other characters who preceded him, Alcazar became a victim of the plot, where his personality became a victim of retroactive continuity to allow for Corinthos and Morgan to be portrayed as heroes, followed by a storyline where the “heroic” Jason Morgan got away with the execution of Alcazar by trying to cover up his ex-wife's crimes. Jason and Ric both covered this up by saying that Capelli told Jason he had killed Zander. Courtney shot Detective Brian Beck to stop him from killing her husband Jason. Later, Brian blamed his shooting on Zander to protect Courtney because he was in love with her. Jason didn't have anything to do with Brian's coverup of his own shooting, although he did ask Courtney not to confess and got rid of the gun she used)

Lorenzo Alcazar was (apparently) assassinated on May 23, 2007 by the Corinthos enforcer Morgan, who got away with the murder because of fabricated evidence produced by the MetroCourt terrorist Jerry Jacks and Corinthos' ex-wife Carly Corinthos Jacks.

On the episode of General Hospital that aired August 9, 2007, Carly and Jerry Jacks were in Venezuela on business allegedly related to both stealing the presently-deceased Alcazar's financial assets and fabricating evidence that could help exonerate Jason Morgan of Lorenzo's murder. In a scene, with a Venezuelan banking official as well as Carly and Jerry, related to having Lorenzo's assets released, Jerry called someone that sounded identical to Lorenzo Alcazar. The person on the phone fooled the banking official and his ex-wife, Carly. Afterward, Jerry told Carly that it was not really Lorenzo on the phone, but rather it was an operative trained to impersonate others. Part of the evidence included someone who had been withdrawing money from Lorenzo's accounts. This person was revealed to be Lorenzo's son Diego, who was very much alive, in a storyline that made little sense and was ridiculed by many fans as absurd.

On August 14, 2007, it was revealed that photos of Lorenzo indicating he's still alive were, indeed, "doctored" by associates of Jerry Jacks. Notwithstanding the August 9, 2007, episode that had Carly on the phone speaking to someone that sounded exactly like Lorenzo Alcazar, Jerry has since declared the man on the phone to be an impostor and admitted to fabricating the photographic evidence presented during Jason Morgan's trial for Lorenzo's murder.

According to ABC and SoapNet, Ted King is planning on returning to the soap within this year.[1]

General Hospital's focus on Sonny Corinthos, Jason Morgan, and the mob (to the detriment of exploring other story lines) has been criticized by many fans.[2]

Further, in a Soap Dish article by Carolyn Hinsey, Ted King stated his frustration with the direction of Lorenzo Alcazar on the show, stating that "Sonny didn't kill his brother [Luis] or his son [Diego] or his niece [Sage]. He's lost three people, and Sonny didn't kill any of them. Yet he's always angry at Sonny. It doesn't make any sense to me."[3] On his official website, TedKing.com, King said, "I think Lorenzo is a beautifully complex man with numerous flaws whose heart contains a romantic soul. I have loved playing this man over the years, but feel at this time that the role has become simply villainous. I am ready for a fresh opportunity, and long for a project that continues to challenge me the way playing a South American arms dealer who was a former professor of history at Oxford University once did."[4]

Ruby befriended Nurse Jessie Brewer who helped her get a job at General Hospital. Ruby then eventually became owner of Kelly's Diner and began dating Dan Rooney, a General Hospital administrator.

In 1983, after finding out that Scott Baldwin was threatening to expose Bobbie's past as a former prostitute in order to keep Luke from being elected Mayor of Port Charles, Ruby paid a visit to Scotty's father, Lee Baldwin. Ruby told Lee of Scott's threats, resulting in his being fired from Lee's legal practice.

Ruby met young Jagger Cates in 1992 when Jagger and his friends broke into Kelly's Diner. During the robbery, Ruby was assaulted and Jagger was shot by the police while trying to escape. Ruby forgave Jagger for his role in the break-in and assault and gave him a room above Kelly's and a job.

In 1997, Ruby met Elizabeth Webber. Liz asked for a beer and didn't have identification. Suspecting the teen was underage, Ruby served her a root beer instead. Eventually Ruby would warm to Elizabeth and give her a job at Kelly's.

In 1999 Ruby died while asleep. She left Kelly's to her niece and nephew, Luke and Bobbie.

Lee Baldwin is a fictional character on the popular ABC daytime dramas General Hospital, and the now canceled Port Charles. Peter Hansen originated the role in 1965. Lee Baldwin is the adoptive father of Scott Baldwin. A recovering alcoholic, Lee is a pillar in the community and has a thriving law practice. Scott has sometimes been a disappointment to Lee over the years but these days, Lee couldn't be more proud of Scott and the way he turned his life around. In 1964, as the painful memories of her past marriage to notorious Phil Brewer subsided, Jessie Brewer began to go out on tentative dates with her lawyer, Lee Baldwin. A lifelong bachelor and recovering alcoholic, Lee was a fixture on the seventh floor of General Hospital where he volunteered as an addiction counselor.

When Jessie discovered she was pregnant by Phil after Phil left town, Lee offered to marry Jessie in order to give her baby a name. Once Jessie's divorce from Phil was finalized, she would become Mrs. Lee Baldwin. Unfortunately, before they could wed, Phil found out about Jessie's pregnancy and returned to Port Charles. Phil pled for one month's time to make it up to Jessie, but Jessie was afraid that if she left Lee, he'd be devastated and return to drinking. Jessie went forth with her plans to marry Lee, but on the eve of their wedding, Jessie went into labor! Phil was thrilled, since the divorce wasn't finalized, and the baby would be born with his name! Jessie gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Nancy Brewer, and Lee gallantly released Jessie from the "burden" of their engagement. Unfortunately, Nancy Brewer died of a heart condition in July 1966.

Lee was delighted by the arrival of nurse Meg Bentley that same year. Meg was a widow with a young son Scotty and teenage stepdaughter Brooke. Lee was forced to maintain a platonic relationship with Meg, since she was already engaged to Dr. Noel Clinton. Meg was devastated when Noel announced that he was leaving her for her stepdaughter Brooke! Meg turned to Lee, who helped her through the shocking crisis. The situation was difficult for young Scotty Bentley, who lost both his sister and the man he hoped would become his father, when Noel and Brooke ran off to get married. Lee became a surrogate father to Scotty, and Meg happily wed Lee in late 1966. Lee adopted Scotty shortly thereafter. Lee defended Jessie when she faced murder charges over her dead husband, Dr. John Prentice. Lee lost the case, and Jessie was sent to jail, but an eleventh hour confession by her stepdaughter Polly set her free.

In 1969, Lee and Meg's marriage began to come apart when Meg's old nursing school friend, Iris Fairchild, came to Port Charles and used alcohol to solve her life's problems. Lee intervened and counseled her, giving her a job as his secretary and a reason to go on. Meg grew jealous of Lee's friendship with Iris, and accused them of having an affair. Lee and Meg separated for a while over Meg's unfounded accusations, but came together again when Lee donated his kidney to save Scotty's life.

The following year, Brooke's marriage to Noel had fallen apart and Brooke returned to live with Meg and Lee. Meg was diagnosed with breast cancer, and after a radical mastectomy, Meg's insecurities about her appearance were magnified by the presence of sexy Brooke. Meg suffered a nervous breakdown from her jealousy and depression, and Lee was regrettably forced to institutionalize his wife. By 1971, Lee was thrilled to welcome Meg back from the mental institution, supposedly recovered from her mental breakdown. Now, Meg suffered from a severe case of hypertension. Dr. Lesley Williams, a strikingly beautiful doctor, was assigned to her case at General Hospital. The jealous Meg began to suspect—wrongly—that Lesley was trying to work her way into Lee's bed! During an argument with Lee, Meg suddenly died of a fatal stroke. Lee was devastated, but remained strong for Scotty.

Lee defended Jessie against murder charges again in 1974, when Jessie stood accused of her ex-husband Dr. Phil Brewer's murder. Jessie saddened Lee when she refused to cooperate in her own defense. Lee urged Jessie to fight the charges, letting his emotions run away with him and kissing her passionately! Lee proved Jessie's innocence, but they couldn't rekindle their old relationship. To Scotty's delight, Lee Baldwin found a soulmate in adoption agent Caroline Chandler. After a marriage and a short honeymoon, the newlyweds returned to town to face the disastrous news that Caroline's son, Bobby, an energetic med student, was suffering from an incurable case of Melenkoff's disease. Miraculously, Bobby's certain fate was reversed when Steve discovered that Bobby's fatal diagnosis was wrong! Rejoicing from the welcome news, Lee and Caroline joined Bobby in New York where he received treatment.

Lee Baldwin returned to Port Charles in 1977 after his wife died in an accident. Lee found comfort in long, warm and platonic evenings with Dr. Gail Adamson. Lee and Gail were good company for each other. Sensing his devastation, Gail secretly contacted Scotty Baldwin, Lee's stepson, urging the young law student to get in touch with the only father he'd ever known. Scotty had left Port Charles several years earlier and was now living in New York's Greenwich Village. Gail's mission worked when Scotty showed up in town. She smiled with satisfaction as father and son reunited. Scotty, agreeing to join the "establishment," accepted a clerking job at General Hospital, where he met and became instantly captivated by young Laura Webber.

In the spring of 1979, Scotty kept assuring Laura that he was doing everything in his power to bring a June wedding about, but she lost confidence that they would ever be together. Disillusioned, Laura returned her ring and set out to make new friends. Laura's disregard for his feelings sent Scotty into a tailspin. In despair, Scotty turned to drink. Thankfully, Lee, a recovering alcoholic, pulled his son out of the trap. Married to Lee by 1980, Gail and Lee were constantly wrapped up in Scotty's personal troubles. They stood by him through all the tumultuous twists and turns in Scotty's marriage to Laura Webber. When Laura tried to divorce Scotty the next year, Lee burned the divorce papers, embittered over Laura's betrayal of his son.

Lee Baldwin ran for Mayor in 1983, and his opponent was Luke Spencer, the man who ruined Scotty and Laura's marriage! Scotty was managing Lee's campaign and using smear tactics to discredit Luke. Scotty even threatened to expose Luke's sister's past as a prostitute to get him to drop out of the race! When Lee found out what Scotty was up to, Lee fired Scotty and Scotty left town. Luke won the election. Lee and Gail were surprised to learn they were grandparents, when it was revealed in 1994 that Scott fathered high school graduate Karen Wexler with his secretary Rhonda Wexler when he was a law student.

After several ups and downs with Scotty, Lee and Gail were thrilled when he returned to Port Charles in 1997 with his young daughter Serena. Dr. Julie Devlin called on Lee's legal services in 1998 when she stood accused of the General Homicide serial killings. Julie's murder trial began and Lee set out to make Dr. Eve Lambert look like the guilty party. Lee was successful in his defense of Julie, who was acquitted of all the charges against her. The killer was still at large, but the authorities now had a clue to go on as someone who resembled Eve was caught on tape by the surveillance camera on the roof of the hospital. At that same time, a woman wearing a very Eve-like wig was seen looking at herself in the mirror. When the woman turned around, it was revealed that Julie was the General Homicide killer!

As it turned out, Julie was really being controlled by evil Dr. Greg Cooper, and was doing his bidding. When Julie was finally caught, Lee Baldwin was appointed as her legal guardian, and Gail helped see to it that Julie was committed to Ferncliff psychiatric facility to get the therapy she needed. Chris and Julie schemed to have Lee replaced as Julie's guardian to further their plan to get Julie acquitted of the murder charges and released from Ferncliff.

Lee worried his loved ones in 1999 when he suffered a Pulmonary Embolism that nearly claimed his life, but with the love and support of his family rallying around him, Lee pulled through and is back to being a vital part of Port Charles. For months, DV Bordisso had made life a living hell for Scott and Lucy Coe. As it turned out, DV claimed to be Scott's biological father and he wanted to get revenge on Scott for what his mother, Meg, had done to him before Scott was even born! Scott, Lucy, Kevin, Eve and Victor all teamed up to beat DV at his own game and emerged victorious in the end. DV, however, managed to frame Scott for attempted murder, but an innocent Scott beat the charges. Scott faced some inner demons upon learning that DV was his biological father, but Lee helped Scott to see that no matter what Scott's biology, he was Lee's son, and was a good person.

Lee and Gail were devastated by the July 2003 death of their eldest granddaughter Karen, when she was hit by a car. Though Lee and Gail mourned her passing, they took comfort in the fact that Karen's blood helped save Lucy's life. Lila Quartermaine quietly died in her sleep on the evening of Tuesday, July 13, 2004, and Lee and Gail paid their respects to the Quartermaines at the funeral that Friday. The sources of joy for Lee are his beloved wife Gail and granddaughter, Serena. Highly respected by everyone in the community, Lee always comes down on the right side of the law.

Scott Baldwin is a fictional character from the ABC soap operas, General Hospital and its now-defunct spinoff Port Charles. He is often remembered as the "odd man out" in GH's well-known love story of Luke and Laura Spencer. The character debuted on GH as a child in the 1960s. He grew up to be an upstanding young attorney, and then fell in love with and married the young Laura Webber. However, soon after their marriage, she began her legendary romance with Luke Spencer. Scott was devastated by Laura's betrayal, and this led to a drastic personality change in the character, who became one of General Hospital's most memorable and longest running villains. This portrayal stands in stark contrast to his depiction on Port Charles, where he was always considered one of the series' heroic characters.

The character was originated as a child in the 1960s, played by the famous child actor Johnny Whitaker. Several other actors have played the role over the years, though the most commonly associated name is that of Kin Shriner, who played the character both on General Hospital and its spinoff Port Charles. With the departure of actress Rachel Ames as Audrey Hardy, Scott became the oldest character (in real time) appearing on General Hospital, having been introduced in 1965. However, he has not appeared on the series since November 2008.

The young Scotty Baldwin first came to Port Charles with his mother Meg Bentley and half-sister Brooke, after the death of his father Lloyd. There was a lot of family strife in the first couple of years as Meg became engaged to the dashing Dr. Noel Clinton, sending Brooke into a tail-spin. Brooke never liked her stepmother Meg and felt that the engagement to Noel was a slap in the face to her dead father. In retaliation, Brooke seduced Noel and the two left town and wed. Meg was devastated. A short time later, she met and married Lee Baldwin. Lee adopted Scotty and the three became a family. Unfortunately, Meg developed breast cancer and had to have a radical mastectomy. The illness caused Meg to have a mental breakdown and Lee had no choice but to put her in a sanitarium where she soon after died. Lee now had to raise Scotty on his own. Scotty eventually left the show (went away to law school) for a time. When he returned, he obtained a job at the hospital, where he met the young Laura Webber. They married, but then she fell in love with Luke Spencer due to his free spirit and naughty charm in contrast with the more conservative and uptight Scotty and she divorced Scotty after less than two years of marriage.

In 1981 at Luke and Laura's wedding, Scotty showed a darker side, as he caught the bridal bouquet and announced he was contesting his divorce from Laura. Since then, while Scott's more scrupulous side has re-emerged more than once, he always returned to engaging in underhanded and often illegal activities, even as district attorney of Port Charles. He has had several brief relationships, and in 1982 married Susan Moore, supposedly for financial reasons. Susan was the mistress of the wealthy Alan Quartermaine and they had had a son, Jason Morgan, with a considerable trust fund. Susan was murdered, and Jason was then raised by Alan and his wife Monica. Scott left Port Charles soon afterward.

Scott returned in 1987 and helped to destroy Bobbie's marriage to Jake Meyer, before becoming involved in an off-on relationship with Lucy Coe. The two remained good friends, even after Scott married Dominique Stanton and Lucy offered to be a surrogate mother for Dominique when Dominique learned that she was dying. Sometime after Dominique died, Lucy gave birth to their child, whom Scott named Serena, after Dominique's beloved childhood home Serenity. After an ill advised engagement to Katherine Bell, Scotty left town once again, returning to Port Charles in 1997.

Scotty has a seat on the board of General Hospital, which he received after negotiating a solution to a nurses strike. He was also Luke's attorney during the murder trial of Stefan Cassadine, though they fought constantly about how to handle the case, and as a result of Felicia's testimony, the case caused great strain in Luke and Laura's relationship. Scotty used this as an opportunity to continue manipulation of all things Laura, and they eventually started dating again. Luke was still in the picture though, which caused extreme jealousy on Scott's part. He pushed Laura to finalize her divorce with Luke, and then Scotty and Laura traveled to Hollywood together. Much of the storyline revolved around Scotty's struggle to suppress his jealousy of Luke, out of his genuine desire that Laura return to him willingly. Scotty did eventually blurt out a marriage proposal to Laura, but she ended up choosing Luke instead of him. Scotty couldn't talk her out of it, and eventually turned to his ex-girlfriend, Bobbie Spencer.

When Luke and Laura were planning their new wedding, Laura's adopted father, Dr. Rick Webber, returned to town. Scott and Rick had some kind of shared secret, and Rick pulled strings to help Scott get elected to a position as District Attorney. It seemed that Laura was starting to remember something, and Scott and Rick went to the Scorpio's yard, where they dug up the human skeleton of Rick's old mistress, who had been killed (accidentally) by Laura. When Laura remembered and tried to confront Rick, he died from a blow to the head. Scott tried to pin the blame on Luke (supposedly because he feared that Laura had done it), and played on Luke's guilt that he may have caused Laura's mental breakdown by pushing her to remember. Luke was sentenced to life in prison, but escaped and left town.

Bobbie eventually broke up with Scott, because of his dirty tactics against Alexis in the run for D.A. Later, Luke returned to town and was arrested again. But Nikolas Cassadine had obtained tapes of Laura confessing to Rick Webber's murder, and Alexis used the tapes to force Scott to drop the charges against Luke, in return for Alexis dropping out of the election. Scotty then had Luke committed to an asylum, for what he had done to Laura. Scott was an extremely corrupt DA, frequently using his position to take action against his enemies, at one point even ordering Luke arrested by his own son, Lucky.

During the storyline with the Port Charles Hotel fire, Scotty faked his own death in order to steal a treasure from Skye. He was faced with an investigation by Internal Affairs and fled the city with the money, presumably leaving with his daughter Serena. From an offshore tropical beach paradise he sent Luke a farewell videotape, taunting him.

In 2007, Scott returned, and it was revealed that he had frequently been visiting the comatose Laura in the hospital. On March 5, Luke's daughter Lulu and stepson Dillon Quartermaine intercepted a letter that Alan Quartermaine had sent to Luke in the event of his death. In the letter, Alan identifies Scott as Rick's killer. Soon afterwards, Scott visited Laura at Shadybrook again and confessed to her himself that he indeed killed Rick Webber. He had gone to the Scorpio's that night to see Laura and heard screaming and noise coming from the attic. When he got there he saw Rick trying to inject Laura with a mysterious drug so that she would again forget that she had killed Theresa Carter, Rick's old mistress. He stopped Rick by grabbing a candlestick and hitting him over the head, unintentionally killing him. He left and by the time Luke got there he saw Rick dead on the floor, the candlestick on the floor, Laura was so far gone that she didn't remember Scott being there. Dillon Quartermaine, Lulu Spencer, and Damien Spinelli now know the truth, along with Monica and Tracy Quartermaine. Lulu has since told her mother the truth, part of her hoping that it would bring Laura out of her catatonic state, but of course it didn't work. Lulu wants to tell her father the truth, but is afraid that Luke will either kill Scott and be arrested for it, or he'll leave town because he would feel so guilty because he pushed Laura to remember the truth about her killing her stepfather which caused her to be in a catatonic state

Also in 2007, an ex Iraqi soldier, Logan Hayes, came to Port Charles to find his biological father, Scott Baldwin. Through some investigation,Lulu Spencer discovered that Scott had fathered a son in Texas around the same time that Logan was born. Logan later admitted he had known Scott was his father since he was 10 or 12 because he discovered some letters Scott had written to his mother. He also said that Scott had ruined his family with a bad business deal years before. Because of this when Logan met Scott he took an automatic dislike to him and they fought constantly whenever they saw each other. Scott denied for a while that he was Logan's father until September when they agreed to take a DNA test. On October 3, 2007 it was revealed that Scott was, indeed, Logan's father. Since then, Logan and Scott have started to develop a slightly better relationship.

In the very beginning of 2008, Scott and Logan's relationship seemed to be on good terms when Logan asked Scott for help in getting a job. However, all too soon the relationship became sense again when the file containing the DNA results for Georgie Jones' murder was stolen right off the police commissoner's desk. Logan had been there that day so Scott asked him if he took the file to use as blackmail to keep Johnny Zacchara away from Lulu, since he was one of the people suspected for her murder. Logan denied taking it and was angry that Scott would accuse him of doing such a thing. He stormed off telling Scott not to bother him again and was glad that he had stayed out of his life as a child. He has been lately pursuing Alexis Davis to hand over her job as District Attorney to him.

When Logan was killed July 8, 2008 in self defense by Lulu Spencer, Scott was devastated and is now out for blood. Scott was the prosecutor in Johnny Zacchara's trial despite being the murder victim's father. He used several dirty tricks to get Johnny the death penalty including fraud by forging papers stating his son was working undercover for the police and calling an unstable Lulu to the stand. When Johnny was acquitted of his son's murder Scott went ballistic at the jury and has taken his failure hard ever since and has harassed Johnny several times.

In late November 2008, after kidnapping a newly-reawakened Laura to Los Angeles, Scott returns with Laura to Port Charles. After returning to France to seek further treatment, Scott secretly boards her plane with her and heads to Paris with Laura and to presumably be with her and live near his daughters.

Serena Lee Baldwin is a fictional character (born onscreen on December 7, 1993) from the ABC soap opera General Hospital, and its now-defunct spinoff Port Charles.

Serena was born via surrogate mother Lucy Coe when it was discovered that her mother Dominique Stanton Baldwin was dying, but wanted to leave her husband Scott Baldwin with a child. Lucy made this dream possible by carrying Serena until birth. Shortly after Serena's birth, Scott took her to Canada to hide from the mob, who was trying to steal the fortune that Dominique Stanton left them both.

In 1997, Scott returned to Port Charles, without Serena. At first, Scott accused Lucy of kidnapping her, but soon realized he was wrong. Scott was run down by a car but that didn't stop him from finding his daughter. It turns out that Danielle Ashley and Rex Stanton had abducted Serena hoping to bilk Scott out of Serena's trust fund. Danielle told Scott the truth and he reunited with Serena. Rex then made Scott appear unfit and gained custody of Serena. Lucy married Rex to keep an eye on Serena. Rex was forced to come clean and he was arrested for his crimes. Serena again reunited with her father, this time for good. Lucy was growing extremely jealous over Eve Lambert spending time with Scott and Serena, so Lucy siphoned the gas out of Eve's car so she could be the big hero for Serena and rescue them when their car ran out of gas. However, they were in an accident and Serena lost her eyesight. Following surgery, she regained her sight and Serena was ecstatic when her parents eventually got married and then adopted a baby girl they named Christina. Sadly, Christina was taken by her biological mother and her loss prompted the end of Scott and Lucy's marriage. Soon there after, Serena was thrilled when Julie returned Christina to her adoptive parents and when Lucy and Kevin got married on Christmas Eve. A few years later, Serena packed up her things and left with Lucy, Kevin, and Christina for Paris.

It was mentioned in late July 2008 that Scott and Serena had taken a long vaction on his sailboat in the Caribbean. Upon his return, he learned that his son, Serena's half brother, Logan Hayes, had been murdered by Lulu Spencer.

Serena was mentioned in the episode that aired September 10, 2008. Anthony Zacchara threatened to kill her if Scott continued his case against Johnny Zacchara. Scott remarked that Serena was somewhere Anthony couldn't find her, leading Anthony to reveal that Serena was still living in Paris, France.

Serena was last mentioned on October 30, 2008. After Laura Spencer was kidnapped by Scott, Lulu Spencer called Serena in Paris to see if by chance Scott had taken her there. Serena said she'd try to call Scott, but wanted to get off the phone.

Brenda Veronica Barrett (formerly Morgan and Jacks) is a fictional character from the popular ABC soap opera, General Hospital, portrayed by Vanessa Marcil from 1992 to 1998 and again from September 2002 to February 2003. Her most notable storyline involved a love triangle between her, mobster Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and corporate raider Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher). Brenda was portrayed byVanessa Marcil from September 1992 to 1998 and again from September 2002 to February 2003. Marcil was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Brenda in 1997 and 1998, and she won in that category in 2003.[6]

In 1992, 17 year-old Brenda moved to Port Charles to live with her sister Julia after she dropped out of boarding school. She lived with Jagger Cates for a while and became very good friends with Robin Scorpio. Brenda developed a rivalry with Karen Wexler due to Karen's relationship with Jagger. Brenda eventually moved into the Quartermaine mansion, where she was much beloved.

Brenda and mobster Sonny Corinthos shared an instant attraction when they met in 1993. She helped Sonny after he was shot breaking Frank Smith out of jail. Brenda's friends told her Sonny was in the mob, but she didn't believe them. She wore a wire to prove otherwise. Lily Rivera told Sonny what Brenda was doing. He and Brenda had a very angry, emotional split, which devastated her. Although Sonny was angry at her, she was eventually able to convince him to leave his wife Lily for her. When Sonny tried to end his marriage, Lily told him she was pregnant. Brenda knew she had lost him. Brenda moved on by marrying a widower, Jasper Jacks. However, the marriage proved to be invalid when Jax's previous wife, Miranda, turned out to be alive. Lily was killed in a car explosion, but Brenda remained with Jax. After she was kidnapped to draw Sonny into a trap, she and Sonny were trapped together in a cave. They expressed their feelings and made love, which Brenda later admitted to Jax. They ended their relationship because Brenda could not decide between he and Sonny. When Brenda reunited with Sonny, Lily's father, Rivera, attempted to frame Brenda for the murder of Dr. Pierce Dorman. Rivera had been believed dead. Sonny eventually killed him in self defense, clearing Brenda of all charges.

Brenda was ecstatic when Sonny asked her to marry him and leave Port Charles and the mob behind. On their wedding day, Brenda walked down the aisle with no groom at the end. Sonny, believing he could not protect her, sent Jason Morgan to the church to tell Brenda that he had left without her. Brenda was deeply hurt and hated Jason for agreeing to do this for Sonny. She moved back in with the Quartermaines for a period and then lived with Jax as friends while he helped her deal with Sonny's betrayal. Brenda's mental state deteriorated, and she was institutionalized. She regained her strength and decided she wanted to be with Jax, not Sonny. She and Jax planned to marry, and upon Sonny's return, he realized she had moved on. When Brenda's mother, Veronica, showed up in Port Charles, Brenda was tested for a hereditary mental illness that Veronica had. Veronica drove Brenda and herself over a cliff, and they were presumed dead. After Brenda's "death," Jax burned the test results without reading them.

Brenda returned to Port Charles in September 2002. She was staying with an arms dealer named Luis Alcazar who had rescued her from the water after her accident with Veronica. Alcazar told Brenda she had Veronica's mental condition and that he would care for her during the remainder of her life. Jealous of her past relationships, Alcazar planned the murders of Sonny and Jax. Brenda discovered Alcazar's murderous intentions and escaped from him. She had someone call Sonny to a meeting at St. Timothy's without telling him it was she who he was to meet there. Brenda stepped out of the church and into the rain, coming face to face with a shocked Sonny. She then watched in horror as Sonny was shot multiple times. Jason arrived to find Brenda crying next to Sonny, who ordered Jason to take her to safety. Brenda blamed herself for Sonny's "death" and tried to escape the house Jason took her to so she could warn Jax. When Jason left Sonny's accountant to watch her, Brenda escaped and went to Jax's wedding to Skye Quartermaine. Jax was shocked to see Brenda, who warned him about Alcazar's plan. Alcazar was able to find them and shoot Jax. Jax survived, and Sonny arrived and shot Alcazar. He explained to Brenda that he faked his death in order to get to Alcazar.

Jax was paralyzed, and Brenda decided to help him in his recovery while telling his new wife that she was dying and would not interfere with their marriage. However, Jax and Brenda grew closer, and Skye discovered that Brenda did not have her mother's fatal mental illness. Brenda became worried about her closeness with Jax and blackmailed Jason into marrying her. Jason agreed only to prevent Brenda from reuniting with Sonny, who was married to Carly. Alcazar, who also survived his bullet wound, convinced Skye to help him kidnap Brenda. He took Brenda away on a plane with Sonny hidden onboard. The plane crashed, and they all survived but were stranded in the jungle. Jason and Carly rescued Sonny and Brenda, and Jax discovered Alcazar's lie. Jax left Skye because she kept the truth about Brenda's illness, and he soon found Brenda to tell her she was not dying and profess his love for her.

When Alcazar was murdered, an angry Skye lied that Brenda killed him. Jason and Brenda were arrested, and although Jax attempted to take the fall, charges against him were dropped. Although Brenda and Jason constantly bickered and fought, they decided not to get an annulment so that they would not be forced to testify against each other during the murder trial. Jax wanted Brenda to flee, but she refused to let Jason face the charges alone. When seemingly damning evidence surfaced against Brenda, she pleaded with Jason to leave the country with her, but they ultimately decided to stay. New evidence kept Brenda and Jason from being convicted and sent to jail.

Brenda and Jason left the country to have their marriage annulled. However, Brenda convinced Jason to get the annulment back in Port Charles where it would take longer because she was not ready to marry Jax. When she felt she was ready, Brenda and Jason, with a new understanding of each other, had their marriage annulled.

Brenda ran into Sonny on the docks the night before her wedding to Jax. She forgave him for leaving her at the altar years before and told him she understood why before they shared a steamy goodbye kiss. Sonny's wife Carly witnessed the kiss. At the altar with Jax the next day, he responded "I don't" when prompted by the priest to say "I do." Brenda was confused, but Jax explained that he knew about her kiss and that he did not trust her not to cheat on him with Sonny. Brenda ran into Sonny after Jax left her and told him of her breakup. He revealed that Carly had also left him.

Upon returning to his penthouse, Jason found a crying Brenda with all her things packed. She decided to leave Port Charles, and Jason took her to the airport. Before Jason left her there, Brenda told him that he deserved to be happy more than anyone she knew.[7] While waiting alone for her flight, Brenda reminisced with a smile about her time with Sonny and Jax.

During the first few episodes of General Hospital's spinoff series General Hospital: Night Shift, one major storyline surrounded a woman who was hinted to be Brenda. In the plot, a brunette woman was visiting New York from Europe when she had an accident at her hotel. A gas leak in the ambulance caused an explosion at the hospital, giving her third degree burns. After her heart stopped, she was taken to the morgue falsely. After raising her head while on the autopsy table, she was rushed back upstairs, where she remained until the season finale. In the finale episode, the character, while never showing her face or speaking, flirts with Damian Spinelli. After watching Robin and Jason embrace, she gets on the hospital elevator and is never again mentioned after that point.

In late 2007, after a nasty fight with Carly, Jax disappeared to Europe. Carly did some snooping and discovered that Jax had flown to Rome to see Brenda. In July 2009, while Jason was attempting to talk Spinelli out of proposing to his girlfriend, he mentioned his annulled marriage to Brenda while reviewing his various relationships. Again in August of that year, Spinelli was doing a rundown of Carly and Jax's previous marriages, wherein Brenda was again mentioned.


In 2010, Brenda Barrett will return to Port Charles.

Kristina Cassadine (previously Carter) was a fictional character on the popular ABC soap opera, General Hospital. She was portrayed by Jamie Ray Newman.

Kristina Cassadine is the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and Kristen Bergman, an opera singer. She is the sister of Alexis Davis. Her mother was killed by Helena Cassadine, Mikkos' wife. At the behest of Kristin, Alexis hid Kristina in the stables when Helena came to see her mother with the intention of killing her. Alexis came back and saw as Helena slit her mother's throat. When she went back to get her sister, the baby was gone. Mikkos had taken her and left her to be raised by the Carter family in order to protect her from Helena.

A grown-up Kristina set out to look for her sister, Alexis, and hired Angel Sorel Ellis, who Jasper Jacks had also hired to search for Brenda. Angel Sorel Ellis introduced her to Jax and when she realized who she was. After investigating her story, Jax brought her to Port Charles to meet her sister, Alexis. On August 31, 2001, Jax approached Alexis and showed that he had found her mother's necklace. The necklace had been stolen by Helena Cassadine when she killed Alexis' mother and later it had been stolen at an auction which took place at the Haunted Star when Alexis tried to recover it. The necklace was composed of two halves, one belonging to Alexis and another that was supposed to belong to Kristina. He also questioned her about the other half of the necklace and about Kristina. Alexis, who had never told anyone about Kristina, refused to talk about it until Jax revealed that Kristina was in fact alive. When they were about to leave to meet Kristina, Alexis received a call from Alan Quartermaine inquiring about a missing Chloe Morgan. Jax and Alexis went to Wyndemere and found Chloe dead (killed by Stavros Cassadine).Alexis stepped in to act as Stefan's lawyer, who had been arrested for Chloe's murder.

Tired of waiting, Kristina put on a man's jacket and hat to disguise herself and went to Luke's. She met Ned Ashton there for the first time. They started to flirt but Ned received a call from Jax informing him about Chloe and asking him to come to the Police Department. Kristina followed Ned to the Police Department, and watched as Alexis broke down in his arms. When Ned left to inform the Quartermaine's of Chloe's death, Kristina approached Alexis and started to introduce herself. Alexis, not knowing who she was and upset about Chloe, interrupted her and told her she did not have time to talk so Kristina left.

Kristina came back to Jax's hotel room and told him that she had met Alexis and that she was a stuffy corporate lawyer, that she no longer wanted to meet her and that she wanted to leave town. Jax informed her about their friend's death and Kristina apologized. When a weeping Alexis came to Jax's hotel room, Kristina hid. Alexis told Jax that the meeting between her and Kristina should wait until she was in better shape. Instead, Kristina came out of her room and introduced herself. They hugged and Alexis later told Kristina the truth about how she was lost to her.

Kristina later changed her name from Carter to Cassadine. Kristina decided to stay in Port Charles and lived with Alexis at the penthouse located next to Sonny's penthouse. She worked as Ned Ashton's assistant at L&B Records. She and Ned got engaged. Alexis later became pregnant with Sonny Corinthos' child and Ned stepped in as the father in an attempt to keep the baby away from Sonny's dangerous business. Feeling betrayed and believing that Ned and Alexis had slept together, she decided to leave town but didn't. Instead, she talked to Alexis and they resolved their differences. She later found a piece of a burned letter which informed her that Sonny was the father of Alexis' baby. She set out to find Sonny to tell him the truth. She called him to meet him at his warehouse but a bomb exploded and she was injured. In the hospital, Alexis' begged her not to say anything and she didn't when Sonny questioned her regarding what she wanted to say to him.

Kristina died on August 6, 2002, when a bomb set by Luis Alcazar was detonated. The bomb was meant for Sonny Corinthos. Alexis named her daughter Kristina in memory of her sister. After baby Kristina was born, dead Kristina appeared in a dream of Alexis', in which dead Kristina's spirit was taking baby Kristina away with her. Days later, Alcazar was pushed from his balcony, and the killer is eventually revealed to be Alexis. Alexis faked DID, saying that her other personality was Kristina, and she was who killed Alcazar. This forced Alexis to don a red wig, and people believed her story for a while.

Prince Stavros Nikolai Mikkosovich Cassadine[8] is a fictional character on the American soap opera General Hospital. John Martinuzzi originated the role in 1983, while Robert Kelker-Kelly played the evil Cassadine prince on and off from 2001 to 2003.

In 2001, the long-running Spencer-Cassadine feud formed the basis of one of the major story arcs on General Hospital, with the character of Stavros having been recently reintroduced. A plot involving bioterrorism was beginning to unfold, with Stavros and his mother Helena as the primary antagonists. However, following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the producers quickly altered the storyline, and Stavros was written out of the series.[9]

In 1983, Stavros was originally introduced as the cousin of the late Mikkos Cassadine, who tried to freeze the world with a weather machine, but in 1996 his history was retconned so that he was the firstborn son of Mikkos and his evil wife Helena Cassadine. He abducted Laura Spencer, told her Luke Spencer was dead and persuaded her to marry him. He fathered her son Nikolas Cassadine. When Laura learned that Luke was alive, she returned to Port Charles, intending to just look at him from afar and then return to Greece. Obsessed with Laura (whom he called Lasha), Stavros followed her and was believed to have died at General Hospital shortly after falling down a flight of stairs while attempting to shoot Luke and "reclaim" his wife. However, in 2001 it was revealed that his mother Helena Cassadine had arranged to have him placed in cryonic suspension in a secret room underneath General Hospital. Stavros was revived and came back for another round of murder (Chloe Morgan, who had discovered he was not "Lucien Cane" as he'd been claiming) and mayhem before he was again presumed killed in another fight with Luke---falling into a deep shaft, laughing all the way down. After his apparent death, Stavros continued to "appear" to his son Nikolas in 2002 and in a Christmas Carol-like dream of Luke Spencer in 2003.

Stefan Darius Mikkosovich Cassadine[10] is a fictional character played by actor Stephen Nichols from July 1996 until October 16, 2003 on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.

Stefan is the second son of villain Mikkos Cassadine — who once attempted to freeze the world with a weather machine in the an infamous 1980s Luke and Laura storyline — and his equally evil wife Helena. The complex and often dark character alternated between playing protective uncle to nephew Nikolas Cassadine and tender would-be lover of Laura Spencer, and his obsessive vendetta against Luke Spencer, whom he blamed for the death of his brother Stavros Cassadine and for his own loss of Laura.

Stefan first came to Port Charles in 1996 with his teenage nephew Nikolas Cassadine, the secret son of Laura Spencer and Stefan's older brother Stavros. The Cassadines are descended from a titled, aristocratic Russian family who fled to Greece following the 1917 Russian Revolution. Stefan had raised Nikolas since infancy after Laura had escaped the captivity of Stavros and been forced to leave Nikolas behind, after Helena murdered Laura's mother when she tried to contact him.

Stefan battled his mother Helena Cassadine for control of Nikolas and control of the family company and was official head of the family by the time Nikolas was seven. His mother, emotionally abusive to him during his childhood, viewed him as weak and soft, which he was only in comparison to the more homicidal members of the Cassadine family. Helena strongly favored his older brother Stavros and alternately ignored and belittled the more sensitive Stefan. Stefan loved and protected Alexis Davis, who was raised as his first cousin but later turned out to be his half-sister, both children of Mikkos. He paid for her to attend boarding school in the United States as a teenager and encouraged her to go into the legal profession. However, he also dominated her and expected complete loyalty and obedience from her. Alexis was charged with doing much of the legwork for "Timoria", Stefan's planned vendetta against the Spencer family and General Hospital, both of which Stefan blamed for the presumed death of his brother Stavros. In their first years on the show, fans detected romantic chemistry in Stefan's scenes with Alexis. Stefan expressed disapproval of Alexis's relationship with Ned Ashton and she later went to great lengths to break up his engagement to Katherine Bell, whom she disapproved of. Fans of the romantic pairing called themselves the "Gutter Rats", though no actual romantic relationship was ever alluded to in their scenes together.

Laura Spencer contacted Stefan after her baby daughter Lulu Spencer was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and was in need of a bone marrow transplant from a matched donor. Nikolas turned out to be a match. True to the love-hate relationship Stefan always had with Laura, Stefan forced Laura to beg for her daughter's life. He then allowed Nikolas to donate the life-saving bone marrow to his sister. At the same time, Stefan launched his Timoria plot, to exact revenge on Luke and Laura for (presumably) killing his brother, Stavros, while he was attempted to rape Laura Spencer fifteen years prior. Stefan later married Luke's sister Bobbie Spencer as part of his revenge plot against the Spencers. The marriage ended in divorce after Stefan caught Bobbie investigating his actions against the Spencers.

In the intervening years, Stefan had an affair with and later became engaged to Katherine Bell. This relationship was derailed for a time after his "cousin" Alexis produced proof that Katherine was Stefan's half-sister Natasha. This was eventually exposed as a falsehood, when it turned out that Alexis was the real Natasha. This revelation rocked Stefan and he reacted as a true Cassadine. Stefan banished Alexis, but eventually forgave her. Katherine fell off a parapet during her engagement party to Stefan, the victim of a failed attempt to murder Helena by Luke and Alexis. Katherine was rescued by Helena Cassadine and restored to health, but died in a second fall from the parapet (this time assisted by Helena) soon after her return.

Meanwhile, Laura was harboring a secret about Nikolas, which strained her relationship with her husband and family. Eventually, Luke discovered that she had slept with Stefan and believed that Stefan, not Stavros, was Nikolas' father, and had lied to him about it. Meanwhile, Stefan had to face Nikolas about the secret that Stefan, too, had kept. Nikolas lashed out at Stefan, moving out and depending heavily on his brother, Lucky Spencer, and his friend, Emily Quartermaine, for support. Stefan did not approve of Nikolas's choices for companions, feeling that they were below his stature as a Cassadine. In particular, Stefan felt that Nikolas should always be wary of Spencers, and not trust them as he had come to trust Lucky. Eventually the two reconciled. Nikolas had always loved Stefan like a father, after all.

DNA testing later proved that Stavros was actually Nikolas's father, much to Stefan's bitter disappointment. The damage was already done to Luke and Laura, however, and they divorced. Shortly before Luke and Laura divorced, Stefan and Laura began a relationship, and Stefan felt hopeful that he could regain his relationship with Laura, the woman he had so loved and hated over the years. Unfortunately, their relationship ended bitterly, after Stefan learned that Laura's presumed dead son, Lucky, was alive, and temporarily withheld the information from her. Laura eventually learned about this from Luke, and violently confronted Stefan. Laura could not forgive him for the lie, and Stefan finally accepted that he and Laura had no future.

Stefan later fell in love with Quartermaine cousin Chloe Morgan and was framed for her murder when his back-from-the-dead brother, Stavros, killed her. The plot was eventually revealed and Stefan was cleared.

He appeared more aggressive and continually more deranged and desperate in his final year on the show. Stefan returned to the show after an absence. He had plotted an arranged marriage for Nikolas with Lydia Karenin, a wealthy Russian heiress, to restore the Cassadine family's wealth. He ordered Nikolas to marry Lydia, but Nikolas was reluctant to follow through. Stefan attempted to kill Nikolas's real love, Emily Bowen-Quartermaine, but pushed Lucky's girlfriend Summer (a Laura look-alike), off the cliff by mistake. His secret was well hidden, though, he thought. Stefan's loan from Lorenzo Alcazar was due (this loan transpired as Stefan re-entered the show); Stefan and Lorenzo's henchmen fought quite a bit with him in his final weeks. At this time as well, Luke Spencer kidnapped and put Stefan on "trial" in front of the entire Port Charles television audience, taped by Dillon Quartermaine. Luke intended for Stefan to admit to the attempted murder of Emily Bowen-Quartermaine and actual murder of Summer Holloway. Stefan apparently died after he was burned (and disfigured) and later stabbed in a knife fight with Luke Spencer.

Luke was arrested for Stefan's murder but was released when Stefan's suicide note was found, where Stefan admitted that he had set Luke up for his staged "murder."

John "Jagger" Cates is a fictional character on the popular ABC soap opera, General Hospital. The role was originated in 1992 by Antonio Sabàto, Jr., who portrayed him until 1994, and again briefly in the fall of 1995. It was announced in June 2008 that Sabato would reprise the role for the second season of General Hospital: Night Shift.[12]

John Cates was separated from his siblings Michael and Gina after they were orphaned as children. John assumed the edgier name of Jagger, and fell in with a rough crowd. But Jagger's heart was still good—all it took to bring that out of him was some tender loving care from young Karen Wexler. In 1992, thugs broke into Kelly's Diner and roughed up owner Ruby Anderson and attempted to rob the place. One of them, a homeless hooligan named Jagger Cates, was shot trying to protect Ruby. Ruby not only forgave him, she gave him a job and a place to live.

Wealthy teen Jason Quartermaine started working on Dr. Tom Hardy's new volunteer "Teen Hot Line." Along with freshman Robin Scorpio and fellow junior Karen Wexler, Jason had a place on the crisis line to help teens in trouble. Karen and Jason grew close, but before long Karen got involved with Jagger Cates, a drop-out with a sweet disposition.

After a storm, Jason, Jagger and Karen were stranded on an island. On the island, they encountered Cal Atkins and his convict brother, Joseph Atkins, who had broken out of jail. Cal dragged Karen to the top of a cliff and tried to rape her. Jagger saved her. Jason got there in time to see Cal plummet to the shore below! Convinced that Cal was dead, the teens made a pact to keep what had happened a secret. Cal was actually alive and well with his brother. Back home, a shoot-out occurred. Jagger suffered a minor wound. Cal was arrested. Atkins escaped and sought out Bobbie, who had befriended him in letters to his jail cell. The escaped convict took her hostage and tried to rape her. Atkins was caught when he tried to escape in a police helicopter flown by Mac Scorpio.

Teenage spitfire Brenda Barrett turned up on her big sister Julia's doorstep. Julia persuaded Brenda to move in with her and enroll in Port Charles High. Jagger Cates also enrolled at PC High. Brenda was instantly attracted to him. She could tell he liked Karen, who Brenda instantly disliked. Neither Jagger nor Brenda liked school. But Jagger liked Brenda's style and they fell into each others' arms and made love.

For good reason, Brenda Barrett was insecure about her relationship with Jagger Cates. Jagger and Karen had fallen in love. Karen began having disturbing flashbacks. An old boyfriend of Karen's mother, Rhonda, came to stay with her and Karen. Soon after seeing her mother's old boyfriend Ray Conway, long repressed memories flooded back to Karen because he had abused her when she was a child!

Jagger located his sister, Gina, and hired Felicia Jones and Mac Scorpio to find his 16-year-old brother. At a wild party, someone slipped "ecstasy" into Karen's drink. A kid named Stone came to her aid. He turned out to be Jagger's brother, Mike. Karen felt unworthy of Jagger, who had started to box with Marco Dane as his manager. She broke up with Jagger who was comforted by Brenda Barrett.

A troubled Karen went to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge, run by Sonny Corinthos. Stone lived in Sonny's apartment above the club. Soon, Karen was addicted to stripping, Sonny, and pills! Karen kept her new life a secret while she worked at Kelly's and the hospital and went to class at Port Charles University. Jagger and "Stone" were reunited.

After Jagger and Stone argued over Stone's going back to school, Jagger followed Stone to the Paradise Lounge. He saw Karen stripping! Later, a stunned Jagger found Karen in bed with Sonny and beat Sonny up. Sonny put a hit out on Jagger. Marco promised Sonny a piece of Jagger's boxing action in exchange for Jagger's life. Sonny liked the idea of "owning" Jagger and agreed.

Slipping into the strip joint, Brenda's eyes popped when she saw a drugged-out Karen taking her clothes off. Brenda saw it all, and told everyone. Karen's friends and family rallied around her during her recovery. In his next fight, Jagger refused to follow Sonny's orders to take a dive. Jagger and Karen ran away and finally made love.

By 1994, Stone and Jagger finally rekindled the warm relationship they'd had as kids. Jagger stopped boxing and decided to become a cop. He and Karen, who had received a scholarship to study medicine at Northwestern University, got engaged.

Before Jagger and Karen's wedding day, a suicidal patient at the hospital almost plunged out a window with Karen! A new orderly, Miguel Morez, saved them both. Miguel saw how Jagger felt about Karen and had a pang. He had once been in love like that with a girl named Lily.

Jagger stopped his brother Stone from driving the getaway van that would carry Frank Smith out of jail. Tragedy struck when the bike Jagger was riding crashed and he was knocked out! Jagger recuperated from his motorcycle spill in time to marry Karen in a touching wedding ceremony. It was a day filled with love—and surprises. Karen's mother revealed to Karen that Scott Baldwin was her father. Karen, overjoyed by the news, happily hopped on the back of her new husband's motorcycle and sped off to a new life in San Francisco, where Karen would attend medical school to become a doctor and Jagger would become a police officer.

In 1995, Stone Cates had come down with the flu. As his girlfriend Robin Scorpio nursed him with chicken soup, he convinced her she should go to Yale. Stone assured Robin he'd been tested and was HIV negative. They made love for the first time. Mac was furious when he found out, but he came to realize he had to let Robin grow up. When Stone could not shake the flu, tests revealed the worst possible news. Stone was HIV positive. Stone couldn't bring himself to reveal the deeply tragic news to Robin.

Jagger returned to Port Charles to visit with Stone, luckily getting the chance to spend a little time with his brother before Stone died later that year.

Karen returned to Port Charles in 1997 as a young doctor in General Hospital's intern program, where she discovered she was going to be working closely with Dr. Joe Scanlon. Karen and Joe had been childhood friends in Port Charles. Although Karen was now married to Jagger Cates, a police officer stationed in San Francisco, she was still attracted to Joe. And Joe was attracted to Karen!

Karen's marriage to Jagger was on shaky ground but she wanted to make it work. Although they constantly found themselves in close situations, Karen and Joe resisted their impulses as Karen tried to stay faithful to her husband. Afraid of her feelings for Joe and needing to see Jagger, Karen went to San Francisco. While there, Karen learned that Jagger had been having an affair and that their marriage was truly over. Karen returned to Port Charles and her friendship with Joe grew deeper and the two began dating.

In 2008 Jagger returned to Port Charles with his son Stone, named after his deceased brother. It is revealed that Stone's mother is suing for custody of their son and probably would get him.

Michael "Stone" Cates is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. Michael Sutton portrayed him from 1993 to 1995. The character died of AIDS-related illness in 1995.[13] Sutton was nominated for a 1996 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for the role.

Stone and his sister Gina Williams were raised by their older brother Jagger Cates after their parents abandoned them. Jagger wasn't able to take care of them and they became separated and entered the foster parent rut. Stone met Karen Wexler at a party. Someone slipped something into her drink and Stone helped her. Stone did not know that she was dating his older brother Jagger. Karen felt she wasn't good enough for Jagger so she ended their relationship.

Stone was living with Sonny Corinthos. Sonny was seeing Karen and got her hooked on drugs. Jagger found his little brother at his girlfriend Krystal's grave site and they began to build a relationship. Jagger became a cop and became engaged to Karen. Jagger saved his brother when he was supposed to drive the get away car to break Frank Smith out of prison. Jagger had a motorcycle accident but recovered and married Karen.

Stone started to date Robin Scorpio. He came down with the flu and Robin took care of him. He told her that he had been test for HIV and they made love for the first time. Stone had the flu for a while and decided to get test for HIV again. The test came back positive. He did not know how to tell Robin.

Stone was shot and his blood got on Robin. He ran away from her. She found him in the same motel where they made love. Stone told Robin that he was HIV positive. Dr. Alan Quartermaine ordered that they both be tested. Stone's test revealed that he now had AIDS. Robin's test came back negative. Alan started Stone on drug therapy. Mac Scorpio, Robin's uncle was furious when he found out, but he cared for Stone and even saved his life during a seizure, and later bonded with the kid. Robin later tested positive for HIV.

Towards the end of his life, Stone was cared for by Robin and Sonny Corinthos at Robin's safehouse. Stone's eyesight started to fail due to CMV retinitis worsened by his illness. Right before he died he was able to focus on Robin and see her for one last time. His last word were, "I see you...Oh, Robin, I see you." Stone was like a brother to Sonny and Sonny took his death very hard. Brenda Barrett took his death hard as well, and the two comforted each other. Sonny, Brenda, and Robin had Stone cremated and threw his ashes over a bridge where he had gone bungee jumping to fulfill one of the wishes on his "wish list," which he made once he knew he would not live many more months. That same year Sonny lost his wife Lily Rivera Corinthos. He donated her inheritance to General Hospital to open the Stone Cates Memorial AIDS Wing. Sonny later named his son Morgan Stone Corinthos, after Jason Morgan and Stone.

Stone's name comes up regularly on the show, unlike most soap opera characters who are quickly forgotten after being killed off. The annual Nurses Ball, ceased in 2001 for some unexplained reason, was always dedicated to Stone and featured his NAMES Project AIDS Memorial quilt, a robin on a bridge (to commemorate not only his life, but the love he shared with Robin Scorpio) created by Mac Scorpio, at the entrance. Robin tells many characters how she contracted HIV from Stone, and even did this when she discovered her mother Anna Devane was alive on All My Children in 2001. Sometimes, Stone, or a great coincidence, messes with the lights after blackouts whenever Stone's name is mentioned, leaving Sonny and Robin to often wonder if Stone's spirit checks in on them from time to time.

In 2008, Jagger returns to Port Charles in General Hospital: Night Shift. He visits Robin and later introduces her to his son, Stone, who later is determined to be autistic.

Lois Cerullo (formerly Ashton) is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. Rena Sofer portrayed the role from 1994 to 1996, and again briefly in 1997. Lesli Kay stepped into the role briefly from 2004 to 2005.

Lois first appeared on General Hospital in 1994 when she saw Eddie Maine perform at a New York concert, Lois was a band manager and quickly hired "Eddie". Unbeknownst to her, Eddie Maine's real name was Ned Ashton. She believed that he was a singer by night and a traveling pharmaceutical salesman by day, and Ned let her. They soon fell in love and got married. After their wedding, Ned moved them to his hometown, Port Charles. There she was re-introduced to her old friend, Sonny Corinthos, whom she had known since their childhood in Bensonhurst. She also quickly became friends with Sonny's girlfriend, Brenda Barrett, and the two opened their own recording company, L&B Records.

Lois was still in the dark about Ned's true identity. Meanwhile, Ned was being forced to marry Katherine Bell, who was blackmailing his family, the Quartermaines. Ned refused to tell Lois the truth because he didn't want to hurt her. She found out anyway, while watching TV, and saw that Eddie Maine was actually Ned Ashton, and that he was married to Katherine. During Katherine's birthday party, she popped out of cake, saying "Happy Birthday to Mrs. Ned Ashton, from the other Mrs. Ned Ashton!" Soon after, Lois left Ned.

Ned wasn't ready to give up on Lois, and persistently pursued her. Eventually, Lois accepted his marriage proposal - under one condition - no more lies. He agreed and they married again. Their marriage went through tough times, starting with Ned telling Mac Scorpio that Sonny was a mobster, after Lois confided this to him. It was Ned's family, however that put strain on their union. Lois wanted Ned to distance himself from the dysfunctional Quartermaines. His mother, Tracy Quartermaine, hated Lois from the first moment they met.

After Tracy put ELQ in financial jeopardy, she left town, but Ned was left to clean up the mess. Lois asked Ned to choose either his job or her and their unborn daughter. Ned chose ELQ. Hurt, Lois left Ned and returned to Bensonhurst. Lois later gave birth to a baby girl, who she named Brook Lynn after her favorite city.

A year later, Lois returned to Port Charles, feeling guilty for keeping Ned away from his daughter. During this time, it was revealed that Ned had had an affair with his uncle's wife, Monica Quartermaine. She then overheard him blackmailing his cousin, Justus Ward. Lois couldn't handle it, and again left town. She returned briefly in 1997, to comfort Brenda, after Sonny left her at the altar.

Lois next returned to Port Charles to look for her and Ned's now teenage daughter, Brook Lynn, after she ran away. After Lois and Ned located Brook Lynn, Lois decided to return to Port Charles. Not long after her return, Lila Quartermaine died. Soon there after, Lois began dating Lorenzo Alcazar. Brook Lynn was very upset about this, and decided to start a girl band at Lois' request. Brook Lynn, Sage Alcazar, Georgie Jones, and Maxie Jones were going to fake the audition. But after Maxie was no where to be found, Dillon was forced to dress in drag and pose as a woman. Things got a bit out of control whenever Simon, the record procucer, began hitting on Dillon at The Cellar. Those plans failed as the storyline ended, especially after Sage was murdered by Mary Bishop. Lois continued to date Alcazar. Alcazar's feelings for Carly Corinthos began to return, and Lois began to fade into the background. After actress Lesli Kay was placed from contract to recurring status in March 2005, it had been as if Lois vanished. Same happened with Brook Lynn whenever Adrianne Leon left nearly a year later. But not long after Leon's departure was it explained that Ned, Brook Lynn, and Lois went back to Manhattan to continue on in the music industry.

They were most recently mentioned by Sonny Corinthos who referred to her and her sister. On August 25, he called her mother Gloria, and asked her how to get a hold of Olivia Falconeri. Olivia later references the two as "tearing it up in L.A. And they always visit Gloria, that's Lois' mother, whenever they're in Bensonhurst."

Lucy Coe is a fictional character from the ABC daytime drama General Hospital and its now-defunct spinoff Port Charles. Originating on General Hospital, Lucy came to Port Charles in 1986, and she was a mousy librarian. She was involved with Kevin O'Connor, and she was an alibi in his murder case. After she was duped by him, she wrote a tell all book to make some money. The mousy Lucy was now gone forever. She had an affair with Bobbie Spencer's then-husband Jake Meyer and then miscarried his child. After that, her Aunt Charlene managed to set her up with Tony Jones, whom she eventually married. After Tony, she married Alan Quartermaine wearing a red dress, thus angering the Quartermaines. While married to Alan, she had an affair with Scotty Baldwin and became pregnant. She also miscarried that child. After her marriage to Alan, she ended up with Scotty, but she ended up leaving for New York with Greg Bennett.

When she returned to Port Charles, Scotty had fallen in love with Dominique Taub. Dom was diagnosed with a fatal brain cancer, and she saw a kinder, gentler Lucy and convinced Scotty to let Lucy be the surrogate mother for their child. Lucy gave birth to the child, Serena, in a cabin during a blizzard. Soon after, Scott was forced to flee town after being pressured by the mob. Lucy took this very hard. She ended up meeting Damian Smith, and she reverted to her scheming ways temporarily. She made a bet with Damian that he could not bed Bobbie, which eventually led to the beginning of the break up of Tony and Bobbie's marriage. She met Kevin during this time, and he helped her return to the considerate Lucy she had become because of Dominique's influence.

They faced a very rocky road to get where they are today, though. Despite her fledgling psychic powers that helped in the capture of Damian Smith, Lucy's brief marriage to evil Rex Stanton to keep an eye on Serena, and Kevin's mental breakdown, they managed to stay together. However, when she tampered with Eve's car during their engagement, it caused Eve's car to have an accident while Serena was in it. Serena lost her eye sight but regained it afterwards. Kevin called off the wedding when they were about to say their vows.

Around this time Lucy was trapped in a cabin with brisk Dr. Ellen Burgess, and a strong friendship began, lasting with ups and downs until Ellen vanished in 1999. After their plane crashed, Lucy and Scott found love again and eventually married. A baby girl, Christina, came into their lives after Lucy found her at the Nurses' Ball. Unbeknownst to them, Julie Devlin was Christina's mother, and a bitter custody fight ensued. Lucy reacted angrily to Julie's visitation rights, Frank's visitation rights, and the news that Scott had adopted Christina under his name, and couldn't under hers. When Julie kidnapped Christina and fled town, Lucy irrationally blamed Scott, and ended their relationship. They eventually divorced amicably, and she sees Serena regularly.

After working together to sort out the machinations of Dr. Rachel Locke, and uncovering the identity of Kevin's daughter Livvie, Lucy and Kevin realized their love for each other had never died. They reunited, with Lucy moving back into the Lighthouse she loved. The duo depended on each other more than ever at this time, with Livvie constantly in danger and enthralled by unknown forces, and the town under a dark cloud. As the few months went by, Lucy pieced together the clues and discovered Port Charles had a vampire. In spite of his rationally-trained mind, Kevin put aside his doubts and believed her. Not only was she right, a trip to Transylvania brought news that she was one of the last in a line of vampire slayers dating back centuries (not related to Buffy). She also gained a cousin, Rafe.

Lucy, Kevin, and several others managed to vanquish Caleb, but only temporarily. He returned weak, slowly gaining power by tapping into their fears and weaknesses. He planted seeds in Lucy's head to make her think Kevin wanted to resume his relationship with Eve. With help from Rafe, Lucy and most of the other victims escaped his duping, but he is now using their children as weapons, making Lucy think Christina has contacted her. In the midst of the constant chaos, Lucy has been the major force behind the Nurses Ball since 1994, and takes great pride in its success. Through a series of misunderstandings and Caleb and Livvie's manipulations, a needy Lucy had a one-night stand with Eve's estranged husband Ian. Caleb was destroyed for good, and with the help of Lucy's cousin Rafe, Kevin/Lucy and Eve/Ian were able to patch up their differences.

Lucy then became suspicious of Kevin's meetings with a mysterious veiled woman, but that was resolved when Kevin threw a surprise wedding for Lucy, with Christina as a surprise guest! Finally, after nearly a decade, Lucy was Mrs. Kevin Collins. After the wedding, Lucy learned Julie (Kevin's mystery friend) had returned to town to give Christina to her other mother, because Julie had a terminal illness. Lucy tearfully agreed and promised that Christina would learn how much Julie loved her.

With her new family together in the lighthouse, Lucy had to contend with an old friend of Kevin's, Paige, showing up on his doorstep and moving in. Considering that she was supposed to be Kevin's age, Lucy was amazed by the quality of her skin. As Paige grew closer to Kevin, asking him to paint her portrait, she claimed her husband had been killed in a car accident. What they didn't realize was that Paige was also killed in that accident, and back on Earth only to resolve her relationship with Kevin. Paige got other ideas, and began plotting to take him and Christina from Lucy, seeing them as her family. When Kevin was electrocuted, Paige appeared in her angelic form and nearly pulled him into death.

Lucy, already suspicious of Paige, left Christina with her and went upstairs to find Paige gone and Christina alone (Paige had been beamed up to Heaven for a reprimand). Lucy was outraged and threw Paige out of the house as soon as she returned. Soon, Kevin was similarly disenchanted, and cut her out of his life. He did agree to paint her portrait. At this time he finally managed to piece together her identity as an angel. Lucy walked in on him and Paige in a private moment, and he told Lucy about Paige's real persona. Since Paige had said her few months on Earth were supposed to be spent exploring why she was brought, Lucy bought 3 plane tickets to London, making Kevin and Paige go along. They visited Paige's family's mansion, to put her portrait on the wall. Only a portrait of ancestor Rebecca Barrington was missing. Paige realized she must be related to the Barringtons, and after sharing a tearful goodbye with Kevin, saved Alison's life, then vanished.

Lucy's peace of mind was shattered within a day. Kevin's former wife and Lucy's former rival, Eve Lambert, was killed in a car accident. Lucy had grown to become friendly with her, and was devastated by the loss. She then managed to help Kevin come to terms with his grief, as well as Ian.

Victor and Mary were turned on by a scented candle, which Lucy realized. She soon discovered Alison was responsible for the candles being passed around, and funded a candle business for Alison. Her good idea hit a rough patch when her stepdaughter, Livvie, vehemently opposed this "witchcraft". Kevin took her side, opposing Lucy. Within a few weeks, he had vanished after making contact with the spirit of Rebecca in the candle shop. Lucy lashed out when many assumed Kevin was dead, and tried to help Alison after she was arrested for Kevin's murder. With the support of Ian, Victor, and others, she kept a rein on her emotions and began trying to bring Kevin back. She got clues from the other side which she could tell were from Kevin. They led her to Rebecca's portrait, which had been slashed by Livvie. Lucy and Ian began repairing the portrait, hoping to bring her beloved "Doc" back to her. Kevin shows up in the "nowhere world" of Barnadoon with Rebecca. He tries to call out to Lucy, who vaguely hears him, and she and Ian channel Kevin several times over the next few weeks. It works, but leaves Ian more and more debilitated each time afterwards. Lucy refuses to continue to put Ian at risk, as she cares for him too much to lose him, too.

Lucy eventually realizes that if she and Alison can clear Rebecca's name, maybe it will let her rest in peace and return Lucy's husband. Lucy, Alison, Ian, Kate, Jack and Jamal all work on it, and a judge overturns Rebecca's conviction. In Barnadoon, Rebecca fades away to heaven right in front of Kevin. Before vanishing completely and leaving Kevin alone, she tells him that someone on Earth has to light the special candle for him to return.

Back in PC, Victor informs Lucy that "Kevin's" remains (really ashes from the urn of Kevin's twin brother Ryan) are found, and Lucy loses all hope of finding her husband. Just then, a sketchpad appears in front of Kevin and he draws a sketch of Lucy (adding the date), which floats its way down to her, restoring her faith. Days later, at the hospital chapel, Rafe pulls the magic candle out of his backpack and lights it. Kevin appears in front of Lucy and the two share a wonderful reunion.

With Kevin back, and Rafe revealed to be back as well, Lucy turns her energy to helping Rafe realize that (despite his amnesia) Alison, not Livvie, is his true love. This drives a little wedge between Lucy and Kevin, since Kevin naturally takes his daughter's side. Lucy does not back off though, and (with some help from above) realizes that Rafe sold his soul and that if he doesn't fall back in love with Alison, he'll lose it forever. Eventually, even Kevin admits that Livvie is acting very odd, and when he checks her medical records, he notices some records are missing. He gets the young assistant that Livvie blackmailed to admit that she changed the paternity results. Kevin tells this to Lucy, then prepares to go talk to Livvie. When he enters her apartment however, she takes him for Frank and injects him with a psychotropic drug....making him crazy.

Kevin assumes the personality of his dead twin Ryan, and seduces Lucy then tries to kill her. It is also revealed that a young prostitute on Jasmine Island (where Kevin retreated to after being injected) was murdered. After he tries to hurt Alison, Lucy has Kevin committed to a psychiatric center. In pain, Lucy grows closer to Ian who is still suffering from the pain of losing Eve. Kevin does not seem to be getting any better, in fact he is getting more angry by the day, and is particularly agitated by the connection between his wife and Ian. That connection grows stronger and stronger, and as it becomes increasingly clear that Kevin will not be returning to his normal self, Lucy and Ian begin to admit that they are falling in love.

About this time, the band The Stephen Clay Experience comes to town. They release a song that everybody seems mesmerized by... everybody but slayers Lucy and Rafe. When eventually Stephen Clay is revealed, he looks exactly like Caleb, and Rafe and Lucy go into Slayer mode to protect the town from the vampire. Alas, Elizabeth Barrington is turned into a vampire, and she turns Ian. Lucy comforts him, and the two realize that her slayer powers lessen his need to feed when they make love.

Lucy, Rafe, Alison and Ian devise a plan to rid the town of vampires: there is a healing spring that runs below Port Charles. When submerged in the water, any vampire who has fed will be "healed" and returned to their human selves. The group plans to toss all the vampires in. Unfortunately, the plan does not go off as well as hoped (Joshua tries to blow the spring up): people are hurt, and Lucy also falls in the water. Also, since Ian has not fed, he cannot be healed. After the explosion, Lucy begins not feeling well. She is anemic, tired and her hair has been falling out. Ian soon discovers that she has a disorder in which her own blood is poisoning her. Lucy also realizes that she has lost her slayer powers. But this does not deter Lucy, as she is still determined to save Port Charles from Joshua and his vampire clan.

She was last seen in July 2004 when she and Kevin came back to town to attend Lila's funeral. It's later mentioned that her and Kevin had reconciled and moved to Paris with Serena and Christina.

Dr. Kevin Collins arrived in Port Charles in the early part of 1994, in an attempt to rehabilitate his twin brother, serial killer Ryan Chamberlain. Kevin believed his brother was as much as a victim as the women he had murdered, and thought his own therapeutic methods could help him. Kevin had a difficult time gaining acceptance by the people of Port Charles, due largely to the fact that he was the spitting image of a man that everyone hated and feared. Though it took a while, they came to accept Kevin's presence in their lives, including Felicia Jones, who was Ryan's primary victim for nearly two years. The same could not be said for Felicia's fiancee, Mac Scorpio, who was instantly suspicious and hostile towards Kevin. Though he thought he was making progress with Ryan, Kevin failed to realize that his brother was simply using him to escape from the mental hospital.

One night, Kevin visited Ryan in his room alone. Ryan found out enough about Kevin to knock him out and impersonated him back in Port Charles. Kevin eventually managed to prove to authorities and hospital personnel that he was indeed Kevin and not Ryan. He raced to the church to stop Ryan from ruining Felicia's wedding to Mac. After that ordeal was over and Ryan was apprehended, Kevin saw him at the prison and confronted him. Kevin wiped his hands of Ryan again. However, Ryan wasn't through with Kevin. He managed to escape the prison and impersonate Kevin briefly in order to kidnap Felicia's baby at General Hospital. Kevin helped Mac and Felicia find Ryan and the baby in 1995. Ryan killed himself instead of being apprehended. Kevin still felt some guilt about Ryan's fate.

Starting in 1994, on a more romantic note, Kevin found himself befriending and counseling Lucy Coe. Lucy came to Kevin with a moral dilemma. He helped her as best as he could, but found himself attracted to her at the same time as he was exasperated with her. They started dating soon after. They got closer when Kevin found himself haunted by the death of his former lover, Grace. Kevin confided in Lucy that Grace had drowned in a car he was in and that he was to blame for her death. Lucy helped him work through the past and got him to see a psychiatrist. Kevin went under hypnosis and came to the conclusion that Grace was driving the car when it went into the lake and that he was unconscious in the car and couldn't save her in time, only himself.

Lucy moved in with Kevin and they started a strong, loving relationship. However, Kevin couldn't continue moving forward until he dealt with his whole history. In 1995, he helped a young man named Stone Cates with dyslexia, and then helped him out emotionally when Stone was diagnosed with AIDS. Kevin was profoundly affected by Stone's eventual death. He also found himself becoming very close friends with a former foe, Mac Scorpio. The two men buried the hatchet. They even dressed in drag to help expose a fraud, named Madame Mia.

However, by 1996, things began to unravel for him. Kevin found himself having blackouts, where he couldn't account for certain times of the day. He also started acting erratically while teaching a psychology class at PCU. Mac's niece, Robin, who was taking his class, noticed it and called him on it when he mistreated a student. Kevin started to lose more time he couldn't account for. He started stalking Felicia Jones like his brother Ryan had. He tricked her and kidnapped her. He held her captive at knifepoint at the summer home of his childhood, called Jasmine Island. Lucy found him and talked him into letting Felicia go.

Lucy talked to him and got him to tell her what happened to him and Ryan as children. It turned out that Kevin and Ryan's mother had been molesting Ryan, and Kevin found out when he was 4 years old by pretending to be his twin to find out what his mother did with Ryan in the bathtub. Lucy stood by him after he was charged with kidnapping and stalking Felicia. Felicia was angry and pressed charges against him, but eventually dropped them when she realized he didn't intentionally try to hurt her. Kevin began treatment with Dr. Gail Baldwin and had his medical license suspended.

He decided to write a fictional murder mystery novel called General Homicide. The novel was a bestseller and the characters were based on people who worked at General Hospital that he knew. However, the book caught the attention of a real psychotic killer. The killer started copying the style of the murders and killed several doctors and nurses at GH. Kevin enlisted the help of his friend Mac, the Police Commissioner, to help solve the murders. Kevin ended up stabbed when he got close to solving the crimes. The killer turned out to be Greg Cooper, a doctor who was kicked out of his internship because the Quartermaines gave the intern position to Karen Wexler after Greg was found to be unstable, according to his files.

When things got back to normal, Kevin proposed to Lucy and she accepted. Lucy was also thrilled to learn she was pregnant. However, tragedy struck when, several months in her pregnancy, she miscarried. Their double wedding with Felicia and Mac also took a different turn when Kevin learned that Lucy had lied to him about her indirect involvement in the car accident that left Lucy's surrogate daughter, Serena, blind. Kevin called off the wedding to Lucy. He was in for a shock, however, when he went to tell Lucy he wanted her back and found her in Florida with Scott in a hotel room. He was devastated and turned to his friend, Dr. Eve Lambert for comfort.

Kevin found himself falling for Eve and they started dating. They eventually fell in love, and got married. They were happy for a while, until a new doctor named Ian Thornhart came to town and got Eve's attention. Kevin didn't realize that Eve was falling for Ian, because an explosion outside of a club was presumed to have "killed" Eve and Ian in a car. Kevin was devastated and leaned on his friend, Lucy, for support. Shortly before the explosion, Kevin had to deal with his past again, when his ex-lover Grace's sister, Rachel Locke, got a job at GH as a psychiatrist, and tried to get revenge on him by trying to ruin him. Kevin also was treating a young girl, named Livvie who Lucy met and tried to help. Kevin helped her through hypnosis to find out about recurring nightmares where she was drowning. Kevin started to see parallels between Livvie's dreams and his past history with Grace.

With Lucy's interference, Kevin learned that Livvie's biological mother was not Rachel, but Grace. Lucy used Kevin's hair as a sample for a DNA test to match with Livvie's hair sample. The DNA test proved that Kevin was Livvie's father. Kevin was happy with the news, since he was growing quite fond of Livvie as her therapist but found they had a deep connection from the get-go. Livvie's adjustment was rough, with Rachel losing her mind and ending up in a mental hospital, but Livvie eventually accepted Kevin as her father.

Kevin started leaning on Lucy more and more and they eventually became lovers again. Eve and Ian returned alive and well. Eve lost her memory for a time but eventually told Kevin she was in love with Ian. Kevin realized he still loved Lucy. He and Lucy got engaged again but dark forces, specifically vampire Caleb Morley, caused them to drift apart.

He was last seen when him and Lucy returned to town to attend Lila Quartermaine's funeral. It's later mentioned that him and Lucy had reconciled and moved to Paris with Serena and Christina.

Nadine Crowell is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. She was portrayed by Claire Coffee from October 5, 2007 to March 3, 2009.

Nadine, who is a nurse, shows up at GH requesting to see her comatose sister Jolene. Spinelli then fills her in on all of Jolene's nefarious activities at GH. Nadine is shocked at her sister's behavior, and explains why the two decided to become nurses and that their father died on the operating table during a routine surgery.

She has become friends with Spinelli, and accompanied him to Nikolas Cassadine's Black & White Ball. At the ball Nadine and Lulu are wearing the same gown and Nadine is mistaken for Lulu by Logan Hayes and Johnny Zacchara. Nadine later agrees to pretend to be Lulu so that Lulu can go face Johnny's deranged father, Anthony, who mistakes Nadine for Lulu and captures her. He tosses her into a room threatening to kill her and saying how all women are the same. Spinelli comes to her rescue, throwing a vase at Zacchara so they could run. They are found by Jason Morgan who takes them to the barn so they can remain safe. Spinelli starts putting himself down because Jason didn't want his help and she comforts him by telling him how great he really is and how the Jackal saved her. She also tells him the only good thing about Jason is that he has Spinelli as a friend. When one of Zacchara's men dies, Nadine runs off to another part of the barn pondering how people could hurt each other like that, obviously thinking of her sister. Spinelli and Elizabeth Webber give her words of comfort.

Apparently, she and Spinelli still keep in contact via the phone. Nadine works with Nikolas Cassadine on his brain tumor. She is also the only one who knows that Nikolas sees Emily's ghost. She provides a unique understanding on his situation and offers him someone to talk to about what he is going through. Nadine was drugged and kidnapped by Diego Alcazar after she saw who he was while at his warehouse but she survived. After learning that someone in Port Charles has been messing with the prescription drugs, Nadine, Nikolas, Lucky Spencer, and Sam McCall begin to investigate who is behind the counterfeit drug ring. Nadine believes that new doctor Matt Hunter is behind the counterfeit drug ring since she's overheard many suspicious phone calls made by Matt. Nikolas thinks otherwise and believes Nadine is going to end up getting hurt.

After many warnings by Nikolas, Nadine storms off and confides in friend Leyla Mir about what's happening between her and Nikolas. Leyla gives her some advice but she misunderstands and storms off to see Nikolas and kisses him. Afterwards, she's embarrassed and tells Nikolas she doesn't want to hear the "friend" speech out of him. Then, Elizabeth walks in and gives Nikolas advice regarding his love life. Nikolas admits he's attracted to Nadine but if he were to date Nadine he would feel like he was going to somehow ruin Emily's memory but also thanks Elizabeth for helping him clear everything out. As Elizabeth and Nikolas give each other a friendly kiss, Nadine walks in and misinterprets the situation thinking that Nikolas does want to move on from what happened to Emily, just not with her.

When she first meets Nikolas Cassadine he is coming onto the ER. She helps him throghout his tough times and ends up falling for him.. Nikolas finally realizes that she has feelings for him and he has feelings for her as well but is afraid to act on them. Elizabeth talks to Nikolas and says Emily would have wanted him to move on and fall in love again. Prior to this development, Nikolas and Nadine have kissed in total, twice, once per Nadine and the other sparked by Nikolas. Afterwards, Nikolas turned her down, giving Nadine the idea that Nik would never be compatible with anyone else since Emily had died. However on August 21, Nikolas invited Nadine over to the castle and they have a beautiful dinner together, as his way of apologizing for his earlier lapse of manners. They sum up the evening with a clumsy but loving waltz around the grounds. When Nikolas reels in to kiss Nadine, she is paged by the GH operating room when Damien Spinelli was the victim of a near-deadly hit and run accident. He offers her a ride to the hospital, but Nadine frantically rushes off without hearing what Nikolas said, leaving Nikolas with a mounting sense of frustration.

Nikolas seems to be leaning more towards the lovely nurse. Nikolas however has started to fall in love with Nurse Crowell, which is obvious when he becomes worried for her health. In September 2008, when the Emily Quartermaine ward is burned down by Jerry Jacks, leaving Nadine and the intended victim Matt Hunter, he is vigil by her side until she wakes up. Although Nadine swears that she is fine and just suffers from smoke inhalation, he insists that she should come to Wyndemere Castle to recuperate fully. It is there that Nikolas tells Nadine, in not so many words, that he starts to fall in love with her. To finish off the evening, he kisses her. After Kate's shooting, Nikolas takes Nadine back to Wyndermere. They start to kiss but Nik freaks out a bit and leaves. Nadine waits. He comes back and they make love for the first time.

Now knowing that being with Nadine made him feel better, they started spending more time together, and seemed to be heading towards a relationship. However, Nadine's insecure rambling often ruined the mood or ended with her walking out on Nikolas. After this, Nik and Nadine were somewhat of a couple. When Nikolas was caught by the police while chasing after his mother Laura with his brother and sister, he was told he would be deported soon. Nadine offered to marry him and started to make arrangements, until Nik revealed that his lawyers had already done their job and Nik could stay in Port Charles. Then Nadine got the news that her Aunt Rayleen was very ill and she only had a short time to live. Nadine and Nik went to visit Rayleen, and her last wish was for Nadine and Nik to get married. The couple pretended to be, so that Rayleen could die in peace, which she did.

However, things weren't over yet. After Rayleen's death, Nadine received an envelope which contained the possessions Rayleen left to her. At first, Nadine was disappointed that the rest of her family was getting millions, and she would get a small envelope. When she opened it, however it turned out she was now the new liaison with the PC Government, who were doing business with weapon dealers. They needed a crucial piece of information from Rayleen, now Nadine, in order to finish their job. Nadine refused to do so, fearing it would lead to a disaster. Eventually, Nik offered to take over her share and once again let his lawyers handle everything. Afterwards, they returned home. Not much later, they were both invited to the fundraiser of Michael Corinthos, organized by Carly Corinthos. Unfortunately, earlier that night, a man was brought into the hospital with complains about a sharp pain in his stomach. While operating on him, it was revealed he had 5 spheres of bio toxin in his body, and one of them burst, causing the entire OR team to go down, and since the toxin was airborne, it spread itself through the ventilating system into the board room of the hospital, where the fundraiser was being held. Nadine was stuck inside the room with other people in order to avoid any more spreadings, while Nik was outside of the room, demanding Jason to get Nadine out of there. Eventually, Nadine was released and seemed to be okay. However, her heart was broken when she heard Nikolas tell Monica he would never love anyone the way he loved Emily. When later Rebecca Shaw showed up, a young woman who is a deadringer of Emily, Nikolas became obsessed with her, and didn't look back to Nadine once, who was still in the hospital when it collapsed. After this, Nadine realized Nik had never been in love with her the way she thought he was, and heartbroken, she broke up with him. Nik wished her "the best of luck" and bravely, Nadine did the same. However she later broke down in front of her friend Matt.

Andrea Floyd debuted on June 17, 2009, in Patrick Drake's office to talk about the malpractice suit against him and his brother Matt Hunter due to the death of Brianna Hughes during surgery. However, Robin Scorpio believes that Brianna was actually murdered, and starts her own investigation. After Andrea hears about Robin's suspicions, she gets the lawsuit dropped so that Robin would not have any excuse to dig any further. Robin still continues digging, and eventually accuses Andrea's husband, Mayor Garrett Floyd, of murdering his mistress Brianna. Andrea is very vocal in both her defense of her husband and verbal attacks against Robin, and orders her husband to keep quiet in order to protect both his job and their reputation.

Alexis Davis as the prosecuting DA soon gets into many heated arguments with Andrea. In order to throw suspicion off of the Floyds, Andrea plants incriminating emails on Alexis' computer, making it seem like the DA was stalking Mayor Floyd because she could not get over a one-night stand that they had had. Andrea succeeds in making Alexis look like a vengeful, scorned woman, and Alexis goes over to the Floyds' mansion one night in a futile attempt to talk privately with Garrett. Instead, she is met by Andrea, they get into another heated argument, and Alexis drives off in a highly emotional state in the same direction where Claudia Zacchara's car accident occurs.

Later that evening Max ends up drowning his sorrows at the Metro Court alongside Diane Miller, who just had a frustrating exchange with Sonny over attorney/client privilege, among other things.

But Max couldn't bring himself to "cheat on Mrs. C" and left.

Alexis Davis walked in on him and Diane and she has not approved of their relationship. When Sonny found out he forbade Diane to see Max, going so far as to threaten to send Max to Puerto Rico permanently. After that Max finally stood up to Sonny and told him to stay out of his personal life.

Jason told Max that he did not care if Diane and him saw each other after he took over the mob for Sonny as long as it did not affect their jobs or waste his time and he did not catch them making out in his office ever again which greatly pleased Max.

Logan Houston Hayes [15] is a fictional character on the popular ABC soap opera, General Hospital. He was portrayed by Josh Duhon from March 7, 2007 to September 2, 2008.

Logan Hayes was an ex-army buddy of Coop Barrett from Hollingsbeck, Texas. Soon after Logan's arrival in Port Charles, he and Coop became involved in a plan hatched by Maxie Jones to blackmail Scott Baldwin. The three had information that showed that Scott is the one who really killed Rick Webber almost five years ago and let ex-wife and Rick's daughter Laura Spencer take the fall for it. The three of them made it seem to Scott as though Laura's daughter, Lulu Spencer, was behind the scheme, although Logan's developing feelings for Lulu had him second-guessing the plan. Lulu discovered their racket when Scott confronted her.

Lulu saved Logan from harm in a shootout with Alcazar's men. In turn, he has tried to protect her on multiple occasions, defending her against threatening characters like Scott Baldwin.In early June 2007, Logan forcefully kissed Lulu in Sonny's coffee shop; she did not reciprocate, and he was forced to apologize profusely for his actions. Since the kiss, the two of them have grown closer. Lulu took care of Logan in July 2007 after he was shot, and during that time, she admitted that she cared about him. The two of them shared a mutual kiss. Lulu and Logan have began a forbidden relationship. Logan surprised her with balloons and a cake, the two made love together for the first time. Lulu moved in with Logan in early September 2007. Soon after, Maxie revealed the bet to Lulu, shattering her trust in Logan. After storming out of Logan's apartment, Lulu hitched a ride with Johnny Zacchara. When Lulu returned, she decided to forgive Logan, but it has not been a blissful reunion. Lulu and Logan struggled to learn to trust each other and appeared to slowly be drifting apart.

Logan's paternity has become a central part of his storyline; Lulu suspected that his father was Scott Baldwin, who was revealed to have fathered a son in Texas around the time that Logan was born. Baldwin and Logan had a contentious relationship even before they were revealed to be father and son; Logan hates Baldwin not only because he needles Lulu but also because Baldwin ruined Logan's family with a bad business deal years before. On June 29, 2007, Logan confirmed that Baldwin is indeed his biological father, and on July 3, he admitted that he'd come to Port Charles to find him. Logan has known that Scott is his father since he was ten or twelve.

Scott continued to deny that Logan is his son but has agreed to take a DNA test to prove it. Logan had doubts about the test at first, but in early September 2007, he finally agreed to go through with it. The test came back on October 3, 2007 and proved that Scott and Logan are father and son; since then, Scott has begun to try to establish a relationship with his son. On April 24, 2007, Logan took over Coop's old job as a security guard at the Metro Court hotel, though he considers the position temporary.[16] Sonny Corinthos secured the job for him.

Logan has been pushing Sonny Corinthos to give him a job with his mob organization since he arrived in Port Charles. Logan's even gone so far as to try to extract information from Alcazar's men to try to impress Sonny, and he has got into some violent altercations as a result. Logan's continuing efforts to be hired by Sonny's organization have got him on the mobster's bad side. After learning that Lulu had been present for some of the violence involving Logan and Lorenzo Alcazar's organization, Sonny threatened that if anything happened to Lulu because of Logan, Logan would be killed. He also vowed never to hire Logan. However, after Logan provided Sonny with information that prevented him from being killed, as well as information about the whereabouts of James Craig, Sonny went back on his previous word and hired Logan to work with the organization. When Jason Morgan was arrested for Alcazar's murder, Logan was put "in charge" at the coffeehouse. Sonny has assigned him to supervise some shipments as well; on July 11, 2007, he was shot by his friend (and police cadet) Coop while watching a shipment at the pier.[17] In early 2008, Lulu mistook Logan for the Text Message Killer and hit him in the head with a wrench, putting him in a coma. Soon after Logan woke up he took a job as a bodyguard for Sonny's rival, mobster Anthony Zacchara.

Logan's career aspirations may be more varied than just mafia work, however. During a hospital stay after the gunfight at The Cellar, Coop revealed that Logan once aspired to be a doctor. He originally joined the military to help pay for medical school. Logan has appeared interested in medicine in many of his scenes. In his first meeting with Lulu, he advised her on caring for the stitches from the injuries she sustained during the Metro Court hostage situation. While a patient at General Hospital, Logan asked Maxie, a hospital volunteer, for a medical journal to read.

Logan served in the same army platoon in Iraq with Coop Barrett. On April 30, 2007, he mentioned that he had served two tours of duty in Iraq, meaning that he probably spent at least two years in the Middle East. He sold illegal merchandise while in the army, and in his very first episode, he was shown to carry both a gun and a propensity for doing things the easy way even if they aren't right. After a gunfight in The Cellar, Coop told Mac Scorpio that he and Logan were both MPs and that Logan is licensed to carry a gun. Logan's military service record has prompted Damian Spinelli to dub him, among other things, "the Crabby Commando."

Due to Logan's association with the Zacchara family, he'd seen Lulu and Johnny together a few times, growing jealous. Although Logan had not been featured prominently since his break up with Lulu, he still had strong feelings for her and longed to get back together with her. Logan held a grudge against Maxie, due to the bet, and how it led to his breakup with Lulu. Logan attempted many times to get back together with Lulu and "rebuild what Maxie destroyed", only to be turned down. Lulu even said she was grateful to Logan for sleeping with Maxie, for if he hadn't, she wouldn't have run away and met Johnny. Logan finally snapped and headed to Kate Howard's office to confront Maxie, who he blamed for losing Lulu. He physically assaulted her, then noticed that Lulu was watching, and made a desperate plea for her to stay so he could talk to her. Upon his arrival at Johnny Zacchara's penthouse, Lulu wouldn't let Logan in, forcing him to chop down the door with an axe. Logan entered the penthouse, but Lulu was hiding behind the couch, holding a knife. After disarming Lulu, Logan begged for her to take him back. When she refused, Logan threw her to the ground. As he ran after her, Lulu picked up the knife in which Logan accidentally shoved himself into the knife. He haunts Lulu in her mind for months until Laura finally gives her the strength to move on. He permanently departed on September 2, 2008.

Matt arrived in Port Charles as a resident doctor at General Hospital under a fellowship sponsored by Nikolas Cassadine. He was initially suspected by nurse Nadine Crowell of being involved in a counterfeit drug ring, but later teams up with her to uncover the real criminals. During the course of the investigation, he is trapped in a fire and is hospitalized, where he is visited by Noah Drake. Their conversation is overheard by Patrick Drake, Noah's son, who is shocked to discover that Noah is Matt's father as well. Patrick works on developing a relationship with him, and convinces Matt to be his best man at his wedding to Robin Scorpio. With Robin's help the brothers succeed in bonding, even though they remain very competitive especially in the operating room. This has led Matt into some predicaments: he was poisoned as a result of operating on a man that no one knew was transporting poison capsules in his stomach; and he was sued for malpractice after the mayor's mistress died during "routine surgery". Patrick and Robin were able to prove his innocence in the latter case by proving the death was actually a homicide, and with the help of Andrea Floyd, the mayor's wife, the malpractice suit was dropped.

Matt is single despite his numerous attempts at flirting with various young women, most notably Maxie Jones. Most recently he has been trying to charm Dr. Lisa Niles, Patrick's ex-girlfriend who came to town to consult on a case. Matt urges Lisa to apply for an open position at General Hospital, after which Lisa asks Patrick what he would think of her living in Port Charles. Matt also brings her to Thanksgiving dinner at Patrick and Robin's house, much to the surprise of his hosts, who nonetheless welcome the unexpected guest. Matt later tells Robin to be careful around Lisa as he suspects something's not completely right about her. He becomes more cautious when he hears and sees Lisa continuely force herself into Robin and Patrick's life, trying to plant seeds of doubt in Patrick's mind about Robin.

She is a dedicated nurse who doesn't tolerate anyone giving less than 110%. She will call out doctors and nurses alike, when she feels that they are being less than professional. She has a strong moral compass that was never tested more than when her only son, Stan Johnson, decided to go to work for mob boss Sonny Corinthos.

Dr. Anthony "Tony" Jones was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. He was the steadier brother of fictional WSB spy Andrew "Frisco" Jones. Tony Jones was portrayed by Brad Maule from 1984–1999, with appearances in 200-2006 until the character's death.

Dr. Tony Jones' early years on the show included a number of typical soap opera tragedies, including temporary blindness, being shot by Jack Slater, his wife Tania Roskov's death in a car accident soon after the birth of their daughter, and the marital infidelity of his second wife, Lucy Coe. Tony later married his friend Bobbie Spencer, who adopted his daughter Barbara Jean "BJ" Jones, who had been named in her honor after Bobbie helped deliver BJ. Tony and Bobbie adopted Lucas together. They had to return him to his birth mother, Cheryl Stansbury, when it turned out he had been illegally adopted, but they were granted guardianship of Lucas a year later when Cheryl was killed in a car accident. Tony and Bobbie successfully fought for custody of Lucas against his maternal aunt, Tiffany Donely.

Tony's most memorable story came in 1994, when his young daughter BJ was killed in a school van accident and he made the decision to allow BJ's heart to be transplanted into her ailing cousin, Maxie. One of the most heart-breaking scenes ever seen on General Hospital showed Tony laying his head on Maxie's chest and listening to his daughter's heart beat within his niece. It was a storyline that won much acclaim and several awards for writing and for acting.

Later, after his marriage to Bobbie broke up under the stress of her infidelity with Damian Smith and the loss of BJ, he became romantically involved with Carly Benson, the daughter Bobbie gave up for adoption as a teenager. When Carly became pregnant by Alan "AJ" Quartermaine Jr., she was initially uncertain whether Tony or AJ had fathered her son Michael. When the baby was born, his blood type proved that he could not be Tony's son, but Tony still felt like the father because he had cared for him during the months of Carly's pregnancy. He kidnapped baby Michael from Carly for a time. Michael was recovered and Tony was put on trial, but was found not guilty by reason of temporary insanity. Carly then shot and seriously wounded him in open court.

Tony eventually rehabilitated himself and returned to his practice as a neurosurgeon. In recent years, he has been largely a recurring character. He was supportive when his adopted son, Lucas Jones, told his parents he was gay. Tony died in February 2006 during an encephalitis epidemic at General Hospital. Tony told those at his bedside that BJ was there waiting for him and that he was dying happy.

Trevor Lansing is a fictional character that appeared on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. He is the father of Ric Lansing, and former fiance of Adela Corinthos. Stephen Macht joined the cast of General Hospital as Trevor Lansing, on August 22, 2007.

The character of Trevor Richardson Lansing was first introduced to the audience in 2003 through his son Ric Lansing, when Ric revealed to Sonny Corinthos that he and Sonny are half-brothers. After Sonny's father Mike walked out on Sonny and his mother Adela, Adela began an affair with Trevor, who was married at the time, and became pregnant with Ric. She was his secretary.[19] He sent her to live in his vacation home in Martha's Vineyard.[19] Sometime during the pregnancy, Adela fell down the stairs while trying to get little Sonny to wear a jacket. Trevor blames Sonny for the accident and told Ric that Sonny was so jealous that he pushed his mother down the stairs. Soon after Adela gave birth to Ric, Trevor gave Adela an ultimatum: put Sonny up for adoption or give up Trevor and the new baby. Adela chose Sonny and walked out on both Trevor and Ric's lives. Adela was later killed by her future abusive husband Deke Woods.

On August 22, 2007 Trevor arrived in Port Charles. He is an attorney and the former lover of fashion mogul Kate Howard. After Kate told Trevor about her pending legal woes, Trevor revealed that Ric, the prosecutor pursuing the case against Kate, is his son and promised Kate that he will get Ric off her back. He called his son "a disappointment"[20].

Sonny, who is now Kate's lover, sees Trevor as a major threat in light of Trevor's connections to Ric and Kate as well as with Anthony Zacchara, who is ostensibly the most powerful mob boss in Manhattan. Indeed, on October 22, 2007 it came out that Anthony Zacchara has been insane for years and that it is Trevor who has secretly been the actual head of the organization. Trevor put a hit on Sonny but it failed. He is still very much in love with Kate Howard and hates her being with Sonny.

Trevor now works for crazy man Anthony Zacchara and is keeping a wary watch over his children Johnny Zacchara and Claudia Zacchara. Johnny and Claudia hate Trevor and blame him for a lot of their pain and anger towards their father. Trevor has always had a pained relationship with his son, Ric. On March 22, 2008, Ric confronted his father about all the pain that he had caused him in the past years when Trevor came for the deeds to the waterfront. Trevor just ignored Ric's pain and asked for the waterfront deeds again. Ric gave them to him, walked over to the fireplace and broke down. Trevor silently exited with Ric watching him leave.

It was revealed on July 7, 2008 that he raped, seduced, slept with Claudia Zacchara when she was a teenager. When Anthony walked in, he then shipped Claudia away for sleeping with him. Trevor and Sonny were injured in the explosion of February 9, 2009. Sonny was going to shoot Trevor after he threatens to drop the biotoxin which will cause everyone in Port Charles to get sick. In a confrontation with Sam McCall on the roof, Trevor tossed the toxin and Sam tried to catch it.

Courtney Matthews (formerly Quartermaine, Morgan, and Jacks) was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. She was the daughter of Mike Corbin and Janine Matthews, and the half sister of mobster, Sonny Corinthos. Courtney was portrayed by Alicia Leigh Willis from December 20, 2001 until February 21, 2006. Willis received two consecutive Emmy nominations for her portrayal of Courtney.

Soon after her arrival in Port Charles, she fell in love with and married A.J. Quartermaine, who used her to get to his biological son Michael Corinthos III, the illegally adopted child of Courtney's half-brother Sonny. However, when Courtney defended AJ to his family, he realized that he truly loved her. AJ ceased trying to trade Courtney for Michael and the Quartermaines froze AJ's bank account, leading him further into his alcoholism. After being blackmailed into stripping due to AJ's drunk driving accident, AJ became verbally abusive and had Courtney purposely stalked by Coleman Ratcliffe, the strip club owner.

Courtney's husband always lost to Sonny and Jason and for once AJ wanted to be the hero. She found out about the stalking and his original intentions, and they divorced. Before the stalker was revealed, Courtney turned to Sonny's enforcer for help and developed feelings for him. The guilt now gone due to AJ's involvement, Courtney fell in love with Jason Morgan (who happened to be AJ's brother and Sonny's best friend), and caused tension between Sonny and Jason. After many trials, including the miscarriage of their child, they finally married in a private ceremony in France. However, the miscarriage haunted her. She eventually decided that, due to the nature of Jason's Mob organization, she could not bear to lose him. She'd rather leave him than watch him die for the mob. Also, Jason's lifestyle made Courtney act in ways she never had before, including shooting officer Brian Beck. Although Brian knew Courtney had shot him, he framed Zander Smith for the incident, because he had fallen in love with Courtney. During a fire at the Port Charles Hotel, Detective Capelli mortally wounded Brian and he died in the hospital with Courtney at his side. This incident was part of a string of events that lead to the death of Zander Smith. Shortly, Courtney and Jason parted ways, despite the fact that they still loved each other.

After months of grieving the failed relationship, Courtney declared her independence and began a foundation for needy and troubled kids. Jasper "Jax" Jacks signed on to lend credibility to her new endeavor and the two formed a tight bond. Always looking for a fresh challenge, Jax bet Courtney $10 million that he could seduce her in 3 months and Courtney gleefully accepted. The pretty blonde believed beating Jax at his own game would be a breeze. Unfortunately for her, Jax proved far more difficult to resist than she bargained for and the two slowly fell in love. The bet a playful part of their past, Jax proposed to Courtney and she tearfully agreed to become his wife. The two married on June 3, 2005 in a beautiful ceremony in the park that took them full circle. The only thing missing from their blissful lives was the baby that Courtney had long yearned for - and desperately wanted to give her eager hubby.

The newlyweds decided to have a surrogate child (Courtney was left barren from her first pregnancy) which led to the demise of their relationship as Jax had begun bonding with their surrogate mother, Elizabeth Spencer. During this time, Courtney found friendship and solace in Nikolas Cassadine, which quickly blossomed into a forbidden attraction. Courtney miraculously became pregnant with his child, although Jax changed the DNA results to say that he was the father. In early January 2006, Courtney left town to have her baby in peace. She returned in February 2006 stricken with the disease that was plaguing Port Charles. Faced with the impossible choice between her life or her baby's, Courtney fearlessly chose to give her baby boy the chance to live. After the birth, Courtney told Jax she suggested naming the baby John, after his father. Jax finally admitted to Courtney that Nikolas was the father. Though she was upset with him for lying, she forgave him, and asked to see Nikolas. However, Nikolas arrived too late. The childbirth had greatly weakened Courtney, though with her last breath she told Nikolas she loved him, and died a few moments later.

Courtney didn't get the chance to tell Nikolas he was the father, and Jax hid this fact after her death and raised her baby as his own, naming him John Michael Jacks. The truth was eventually revealed to Nikolas a few months later by Dr. Robin Scorpio, and Nikolas subsequently changed John's name to Spencer Cassadine.

Originally, the role of Courtney was going to be recast, but Willis hinted on Soap Talk that she didn't want her character being played by someone else, so Courtney was eventually killed off. However, in typical soap fashion, the gaping hole in her "death" leaves the possibility of a return, this seems unlikely since Courtney was cremated after her death.

Willis has garnered two Daytime Emmy nominations for "Outstanding Younger Actress", in 2003 and 2004.

Dr. Alan Quartermaine is a fictional soap opera character appearing on General Hospital. He has been portrayed continuously by actor Stuart Damon since the character was first introduced in 1977.

Awards And Nominations

  • Daytime Emmys Winner, Outstanding Supporting Actor (1999)
  • Daytime Emmys Nomination, Outstanding Supporting Actor (1982, 1983, 1984, 1991, 1996, 1997)

Came to Port Charles from Southampton at the request of Dr. Steve Hardy. Throughout the late 1970s and 1980s, Alan's multiple affairs and quarrels with his wife, Dr. Monica Quartermaine were a major storyline. Alan attempted to kill Monica and one of her lovers, Dr. Rick Webber, more than once after he learned there was a chance that Rick might have fathered Alan "AJ" Quartermaine Jr. However, the plot was foiled and AJ turned out to be Alan's son. Alan later fathered a son, Jason, with his mistress Susan Moore. Alan eventually reunited with Monica, who legally adopted Jason when Susan died.

Years later, Alan and Monica adopted Emily, the 11-year-old daughter of Monica's friend Paige Bowen, who lost her battle against breast cancer. Over the past three decades, Alan has also battled drug addiction. Stories in recent years have centered over AJ's alcoholism and later his death; the Quartermaine family's battle for custody or contact with AJ's son Michael; and their loss of Jason, who lost the memory of his life as a Quartermaine after he was injured in a drunk driving accident when half-brother A.J. was at the wheel and turned to a life of crime as a mafia hitman. Alan was largely a back burner character through 2006, though has had a larger part during the Sweeps period of February 2007, where his character was forced to suffer through the effects of a major heart attack while being held hostage. On February 26, Alan died of heart failure at General Hospital. His memorial service was held on March 5 with nephew Ned Ashton delivering a touching eulogy.

In December 2006, it was reported that Stuart Damon had been fired from his role as Dr. Alan Quartermaine on General Hospital,[22] with his last air date scheduled for February 2007.[23]

Despite his death, Alan will remain on General Hospital for the foreseeable future, as Alan's ghost will be haunting his sister Tracy after she tampers with his last will and testament (or, at the very least, Tracy will believe that she is being haunted by Alan's ghost).

On November 26, 2008, Robin Scorpio and Patrick Drake visualize an alternate universe of their relationship. As part of this alternate reality, Alan is still alive, and was responsible for hiring Patrick's brother Matt Hunter.

Alan's last will and testament stated that he wished to leave a quarter of his fortune to the first child of his son, Jason. Tracy and her husband, Luke stole his will and made many changes in which were very far from Alan's wishes. Since then, Alan has haunted his sister as a more mellow, humorous spirit wearing a black jogging suit. His haunting has caused the Quartermaines to think Tracy has gone insane. No one other than Tracy can see him, although Luke will often acknowledge Alan's presence. Alan has cast lightning bolts and refuses to leave unless Tracy admits she forged his will. It has been recently revealed that Alan is not actually a ghost but a manifestation of Tracy's conscience. Alan still frequently reappears, most notably on Christmas Eve 2008 to tell Monica that he loves her through Tracy.

Mitchell "Coleman" Ratcliffe is a fictional character on the popular ABC daytime drama, General Hospital. He originally had just been simply referred to as Coleman since his debut, but on one occasion he revealed to Lila Quartermaine that his full name was Coleman Ratcliffe (December 2, 2002). Other times his name was stated to be "Mitchell Coleman." He runs a bar in town known as Jake's. The character of Coleman has been played by Blake Gibbons since July 2002.

Viewers of General Hospital first encountered Coleman in 2002 when he was introduced as the owner of the strip club that Courtney Matthews was working in. When Courtney faced trouble from a stalker, it was Coleman who revealed that Courtney's husband AJ Quartermaine was behind the stalking as he had set the whole thing up so he could come to Courtney's rescue and thus look good in her eyes. Over the years Coleman became somewhat protective of Courtney although Courtney still felt uncomfortable around him.

Coleman later slept with Skye Quartermaine and was present on the night that Carly Corinthos was slipped with date rape drugs. When Carly believed that Ric Lansing had raped her (as Ric said that they had had a one night stand and Carly believed that she had been too drugged to consent to sex), it was Coleman who revealed that he saw Ric with Carly that night. Coleman told Carly that he was ready to intervene when Ric looked set to take advantage of her, but that Ric had left her alone and hadn't raped her as Carly previously thought. A pregnant Carly was relieved as it meant that her husband Sonny Corinthos was definitely the father of her unborn child Morgan Corinthos.

In 2005, Helena Cassadine hired Coleman as one of her henchmen but turned on her when Helena kidnapped Emily Quartermaine. Coleman helped Emily escape. A few months later Courtney and Coleman were stuck in an elevator together on Courtney's wedding day to Jasper Jacks. Soon after this, Luke Spencer hired Coleman to seduce his wife Tracy Quartermaine as he wanted a divorce. Surprisingly, Tracy enjoyed having Coleman in her bed, but the relationship was short lived as Tracy still refused to grant Luke a divorce. In 2006 Coleman was seen at Courtney's funeral service.

Coleman is most often seen at Jake's, his place of business and has been present during all of the Girls Night Out episodes as well as the Boys Night Out episode. Recently Coleman intervened during an argument between Robin Scorpio and Patrick Drake and he and Patrick ended up in a physical fight. As a result, Patrick's hand was injured, thus threatening Patrick's surgical career.

Coleman was called upon to be Patrick's best man at his first attempt at marrying Robin. The ceremony was unexpectedly interrupted when a very pregnant Robin went into labor, and when Patrick and Robin finally did get married several weeks later, Patrick called upon his half-brother Matt Hunter to be the best man. In an attempt to jazz up his club he hosted the first ever Karaoke Night which was very successful and featured the talents of Patrick Drake, Robin Scorpio, Maxie Jones, Lulu Spencer, Damian Spinelli, Rebecca Shaw, and Diane Miller.

Coleman attended Maxie Jones and Damian Spinelli's wedding, but they didn't get married. The reception was held at Jake's and hosted by Coleman. There was karaoke again, which had all the guests singing to Maxie and Spinelli, and then Ethan Lovett singing, Molly and Morgan singing, and Mac, Patrick and Coleman singing. Coleman also flirted with and kissed Kate Howard. Throughout Carly's third pregnancy, Coleman would give her french fries before a checkup, and then he and Johnny Zacchara took her to the hospital and coached her through false labor.

Faith Rosco (née Flynn) was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. Cynthia Preston originated the role in December 2002 and portrayed the mafia princess until the character's death in 2005.

Faith Rosco arrived in Port Charles in late 2002 to take down rival mobster, Sonny Corinthos. She partnered up with Ned Ashton, who blamed Sonny for the death of Kristina Cassadine. However, Ned soon became fed up with her, and ended their partnership.

Rosco found a new partner in Sonny's new lawyer Ric Lansing. But when Ric attempted to end his partnership with Faith, she didn't want to let him go. Encouraged by their one night stand, Faith continued to pursue Ric, though he to rejected her advances at every turn. After realizing that Ric had fallen in love and eloped with Elizabeth Webber, Faith tried to run her off. When she found out that Elizabeth was pregnant, she tricked Elizabeth into a supposed meeting with Sonny, and when Liz's back was turned she pushed her down the stairs. Elizabeth had a miscarriage, and Ric blamed Sonny.

Rosco continually tried to convince Ric that he wouldn't be happy with Elizabeth. She went as far breaking into Ric and Liz's home to poison Liz. Elizabeth survived, and when Ric found out about what she did, he set her up to confess while the PCPD listened in. To avoid going to prison, Faith made a deal with the FBI to bring down Lorenzo Alcazar. Part of the deal was to pose as Sonny's mistress.

She turned on Sonny, and teamed up with Alcazar. The two planned to bring Sonny's ex-wife, Lily Rivera Corinthos, "back from the dead" to haunt him. The plan fell through. Faith begun working on her own plan, and at the next meeting of the five families, Faith had them all killed. She gloated about her accomplishment to Sonny, until Sonny informed her that Jason survived the shooting. Faith panicked and offered to work with him against Alcazar, Sonny refused and pulled out his gun - but he couldn't seem to pull the trigger.

Faith, next became involved with Luke Spencer, Skye Chandler, and their casino, The Haunted Star. After she won a poker game against Luke, she became a partner in the casino. Worried, Skye hired Justus Ward to protect Luke's ownership rights while he was out of town. It was revealed that Justus and Faith had a past together. Justus had represented Faith's ex-boyfriend, and they had an affair. Faith's ex was convicted and killed in prison. She believed that Justus intentionally sent her boyfriend to jail so that he could be with her. Justus denied this.

Rosco realizing that she was at the end of her rope, went to Sonny to beg for her life. Through eavesdropping she found that he was the real father of Sam McCall's baby and planned to use it to her advantage. Sonny eventually came clean to his wife, Carly, and Faith lost her leverage.

Rosco went to Alcazar to help her leave town, but Alcazar secretly planned to blow up the yacht she was on and frame Jason and Sonny for her murder. Alcazar's plan failed when the PCPD found Faith alive in the harbor. She was arrested once again, and begged Justus to help her. Justus agreed, feeling the need to make up for their past. When a prison inmate stabbed Faith, she was rushed to General Hospital, and from their escaped. Justus hid her in the basement of the Quartermaine mansion. There, she confessed her love for Justus and they made love. Soon Faith met her end in March 2005 where she was shot and killed by an assassin hired by AJ Quartermaine.

Malcolm "Mac" Scorpio is a fictional character on the ABC soap operas General Hospital and Port Charles. He is played by actor John J. York, who originated the role in 1991. "Mac" has also appeared on All My Children in 2001 and General Hospital: Night Shift in 2007.

Mac, an Australian, is the brother of Robert Scorpio. The brothers were estranged when Mac first came to Port Charles, as Robert blamed Mac for the death of their parents. Eventually they patched up their differences and Mac was given guardianship of Robert's daughter Robin Scorpio when her parents were presumed dead. Mac had an adventurous past, but he became a solid citizen when he had the responsibility of raising his niece. Mac first ran a night club called The Outback and later became police commissioner in Port Charles, his brother's old job. He raised Robin, fighting her choice of boyfriends and then later helping her get through the crisis when she was diagnosed with HIV. Mac married Felicia Cummings Jones and raised her two daughters, Maxie Jones and Georgie Jones, as his own. As Felicia slept with both ex-husband Frisco Jones and fiance Mac at about the same time, she wasn't sure which of the two men fathered Georgie. When the biological father turned out to be Frisco, Mac still cared for the child as his own. Although they've kept "Jones" as their last name, Mac is the only father Maxie and Georgie have ever known. He is devastated when Georgie is murdered. In recent years, Mac would pop up only occasionally on the Port Charles canvas in his role as a dad and police commissioner. But he begins to get more screen time in late 2009. A now married Robin hosts Thanksgiving dinner for the family at her new house, partaking in a plot with Kristina Davis and Molly Lansing to set up their mother, Alexis Davis, with her uncle Mac. Robin tells a skeptical Sam McCall that the two guests of honor had very obvious chemistry at the "nonwedding" of Maxie and Damian Spinelli. But Alexis and Mac realize something is afoot and tell the girls it is a waste of time. They are thrown together several times over the next few weeks, with Mac clearly enjoying her company despite her protests that they should remain just friends. He invites her out for New Year's Eve and, after her hybrid car breaks down on the way to the Metro Court, they end up dancing under the stars on a snow-covered roadside.

Barbara Jean "Bobbie" Spencer (previously Brock, Meyer, Jones, and Cassadine) is a fictional character on the popular ABC soap opera, General Hospital. She has been portrayed by actress Jacklyn Zeman on a contract basis from 1978 to 2007, and on a recurring basis from 2007 to present.Through behind the scenes production changes Bobbie, who is still extremely popular among fans, has largely become a non-existent character, popping in only a few times a year to visit her family in Port Charles.

Bobbie is the sister of Port Charles's central figure, Luke Spencer. As a child she grew up in a poor family near the docks. Her biggest hero was her older brother, Luke, who always protected her and stuck up for her. Once he beat up the McCarthy kids who lived across the street from them because they were stealing her milk money. From that day on she vowed that one day she would be able to help Luke as much as he helped her. However as a teenager she became a prostitute and became pregnant with her daughter Carly by John Durant, one of her regular Johns, and gave the baby up for adoption. A few years later, she straightened out her life and became a nurse, but she continued to lie and scheme her way into romantic entanglements. She came to Port Charles wanting to marry Scott Baldwin. Although they slept together Scott was in love with Laura Webber and wanted to marry her. Bobbie asked her brother Luke Spencer to help her in breaking up Laura and Scott. When the plan didn't work she faked a pregnancy in an attempt to keep him, but Scott still married Laura. She then fell in love with her brother's business partner Roy DiLucca. They planned on getting married but he died in her arms after an assassination attempt on a prominent politician. After Roy's death she fell in love with Dr. Noah Drake, in order to keep him she pretended to be blind, but Noah had no interest. She then married D. L. Brock in 1983. She was battered by husband D.L. Brock and had to have a hysterectomy after being beaten up by him. When he was murdered Bobbie became the main suspect, but was found not guilty when Robert Scorpio proved Ginny Blake killed him.

In 1986 she married lawyer Jake Meyer. Jake had a one night stand with Lucy Coe and Lucy became pregnant because of it. Lucy and Jake would come to an agreement to allow Bobbie and Jake to raise the baby, but Lucy had a miscarriage. During her recovery from a stab wound, Bobbie met a woman named Martha McKee. Martha had to move to Colorado, so she allowed Bobbie and Jake to raise her two children. The teenage daughter Melissa was rebellious, she hung out with a the wrong crowd and got involved in prostitution. Bobbie flew to Miami where she posed as a call girl to disclose the pimp's activities, but Bobbie was arrested after calling the police. Her ex Scott Baldwin bailed her out of jail and her children were taken away. Jake left Bobbie soon after.

In 1989 she married Dr. Tony Jones. Bobbie desperately wanted a baby and purchased one on the black market and later discovered that the baby belonged to Cheryl Stansbury. When Tony discovered the truth he forced Bobbie to give the baby back to Cheryl. When Cheryl died Bobbie eventually won custody of the baby boy which they named Lucas Jones.

While spying for her brother Luke, Bobbie met Damian Smith. Tony caught them in a stairwell at the hospital the day of B.J, their daughter, died after the school bus she was in was hit by a drunk driver. Bobbie was devastated but felt better when she knew B.J.'s heart would be going to her cousin Maxie Jones, who needed a heart transplant.

Bobbie's marriage broke up under the stress of B.J.'s death and under Tony's reaction to seeing her kiss mobster Damian Smith. They separated but after counseling they got back together. They befriended a new resident of Port Charles, Carly Benson. Carly was actually Bobbie's biological child who had been given up for adoption, and had come to find Bobbie and exact revenge. Using a fake last name, she befriended Bobbie, Tony and Lucas, and solicited Bobbie's help as a mentor at GH...all the while deliberately seducing Tony. On Bobbie & Tony's wedding anniversary, Bobbie caught Carly and Tony in bed together, but Carly still didn't reveal her true identity. After catching Carly and Tony together, Bobbie ran to Stefan Cassadine. After marrying him, Bobbie realized all the bad things she heard about him were true. She decided to help her brother, Luke, expose Stefan for who he is. She drugged a glass of wine meant for him, later she removed a medallion that unlocked a secret box. Stefan did not actually drink it, he caught Bobbie and threw her out, they later divorced.

Bobbie finally learned the truth about Carly, who was now engaged to Tony and pretending that he was the father of her unborn child the actual father was A.J. Quartermaine. Bobbie found out that Luke had known the truth about Carly and hadn't told her. Eventually, Bobbie and Carly formed a tentative mother-daughter relationship. The birth of her first grandson, Michael helped the relationship. Bobbie then fell for Jerry Jacks. Jerry, a convict, jumped bail and left town. Before Jerry's arrest Bobbie learned that her old lover Roy DiLucca was alive and responsible for Jerry's arrest. They soon began a relationship again.

In 2002, Bobbie and Scott Baldwin rekindled their relationship. Scott started to use unfavorable tactics to win the election for District Attorney, his opponent was Alexis Davis. He began to question Carly about Alexis, trying to dig up dirt on her. The relationship between Scott and Bobbie ended and later Lucas was diagnosed with dyslexia.

During the Port Charles hotel fire, many loved ones were caught inside. Bobbie was happy when Carly and Luke made it out. Carly began questioning her mother about her biological father, but Bobbie was uninterested. Carly though persisted, she stole a diary from Bobbie that referenced "J.D." When Bobbie realized that the diary was gone, she went to Sonny and told him to tell Carly to leave it alone. Carly discovered a prosecutor in New York named John Durant. Durant would later prove to be J.D—Carly's father. Bobbie's grandson, Michael, was presumed dead but actually was kidnapped by his biological father A.J. Quartermaine. Durant became paralyzed and sued the hospital, but later dropped the lawsuit. Bobbie's son, Lucas, decided to tell his family and friends that he was gay and Bobbie, after some initial denial, accepted him for who he is.

During the encephalitis outbreak in 2006, her ex-husband Tony became sick and later died while she was on duty at the hospital.

Lately, Bobbie has been a background character. Her activities and whereabouts are rarely mentioned, although she still lives at the brownstone, still works at GH as a nurse, and occasionally babysits Carly's son, Morgan. She attends family occasions such as funerals, weddings and holidays, but sometimes without ever uttering any dialogue on screen. As the character grows older, she has retained her warm and feisty personality, with her former bad-girl days lending spice to her down-to-earth advice.

She seems destined to be without a significant other. After Noah Drake resurfaced in 2005, and began making occasional appearances in the ensuing years, the two were given a renewed friendship/flirtation, almost all offscreen, which nothing came of. When Jerry Jacks (then played by Sebastian Roche) returned to Port Charles in April 2007, he never saw Bobbie and their romance was never mentioned.

But aside from her past experiences as a GH mainstay, Bobbie is still important through her connections to her daughter Carly Corinthos, her brother Luke Spencer and her good friend Monica Quartermaine. She helped Monica through the death of husband Alan Quartermaine. She also was seen comforting Monica after the death of her daughter Emily and visiting her brother Luke during his heart attack storyline.

Bobbie's main function these days is that of maternal advice-giver to daughter Carly. When Carly's marriage proved to be in utter turmoil, Bobbie told Carly that in order for her to save her marriage, she would have to come to an agreement with Jax and show him that he is her best friend, not Jason and certainly not Sonny Corinthos. She visited Michael in the hospital on May 13, 2009 and, while comforting Carly, she looked over his chart, implying that she's still on staff with General Hospital.

In the fall of 2009, she was seen at the "nonwedding" of Maxie Jones and Damian Spinelli, who ended up declaring their love without getting married. She also made an appearance at a surprise engagement party that Lucky Spencer threw for Elizabeth Webber and exchanged small talk with Luke there. But much to the chagrin of longtime General Hospital fans, she did not pay a visit in the weeks after Carly gave birth to Josslyn (her daughter with Jax); another character mentioned that Bobbie was out of town. She also skipped Thanksgiving dinner; Luke told the Quartermaines that his sister was in Seattle visiting with her son (marking the first mention of Lucas on the show in years). Not only did Bobbie visit Lucas for Thanksgiving, but she also went there on Christmas as well.

Bobbie did however appear in early 2010, when she attended the christening of her granddaughter Josslyn.

Ultimately, Nurse Spencer may not ever return to the front burner of General Hospital.

Anthony Zacchara is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. In the series, Zacchara is a well-known, maniacal mob boss from New York City. He was played by Bruce Weitz from 2007 to 2009.

Anthony Zacchara, a mob boss known for attacking rival's families, is first introduced as a client of corrupt lawyer Trevor Lansing. He becomes a suspect in the murder of nanny Leticia Juarez, who is employed by Sonny Corinthos and his ex-wife Carly. Anthony is also obsessed with his son Johnny, who arrives in town and forms a bond with Lulu Spencer. This leads to Anthony stalking Lulu, in addition to threatening Jason Morgan and Sonny's family. Sonny goes on to discover that Anthony is insane, and that Trevor has been running the mob organization for years, controlling Anthony's son Johnny.

Anthony crashes a ball held by Nikolas Cassadine to celebrate his engagement to Emily Quartermaine. He stabs Trevor's son Ric Lansing, and he briefly abducts nurse Nadine Crowell, who is saved by her date Damian Spinelli. After causing Luke Spencer to have a heart attack, he finds nurse Leyla Mir, who looks exactly like his late wife Maria that he murdered in front of his son Johnny. He attempts to shoot Dr. Patrick Drake, but is thwarted by Leyla. He goes on to force Elizabeth Webber and Jason Morgan to choose which of the two would die by jumping off of a balcony, but they were able to gain an advantage and force him over the ledge. Anthony is left a quadriplegic and is confined to a mental institution.

Anthony returns again, and to his chagrin, his daughter Claudia came to town and reunited with her half-brother Johnny. Anthony is able to recover movement above his waist, and because of his reaction to medication, Ric Lansing is able to have him released from the institution. Currently, Anthony is in a power struggle with Claudia and Trevor, and he is forcing Lulu Spencer to date his son Johnny, though the two are plotting his downfall. In September 2008, unbeknownst to anyone in Port Charles, Anthony regains the use of his legs and goes to the church where Sonny Corinthos and Kate Howard are getting married and shoots Kate in the chest using a rifle and bullet from Russia, to shift the blame onto Andrei Karpov. Ric catches Anthony out of his wheelchair, putting the rifle into its case. Anthony tells Ric that he shot Kate as part of a plot to eliminate the Corinthos organization by turning Sonny and Jason against each other, since Anthony knows Jason won't retaliate against Karpov like Sonny wants him to.

An actual moment is seen between Anthony and Johnny on October 6, 2008, when Johnny is broken hearted over Lulu and believes it was all his fault Lulu went nuts. He says to Anthony that he will accept his fate and become a full fledged mobster. Johnny breaks down in tears in front of Anthony then. Anthony is actually moved by his son's tears and comforts him in his own way. On October 28, Anthony suffered an aneurysm while arguing with Claudia, who was going to let him lay there and die. Johnny busted in and rushed him to General Hospital where he offered Patrick extra money to save Anthony. Anthony is responsible for the shooting of Kate Howard. He plans to silence his daughter after she learns it and plans to expose him for the shooting. Anthony knows that Claudia hired the gunman who shot Michael Corinthos.

Anthony is among the group of benefactors at the Michael Corinthos III Pediatric Head Trauma Wing fundraiser party in the boardroom at General Hospital when an airborne bio-toxin was released into the air. After being evacuated, Jason tied Anthony to a hospital bed for his own protection. After a gas leak set the hospital on fire, the area around Anthony began to creep up with flames. When Jason came back for him awhile later, he was gone from his bed. Moments later, that floor exploded, leading everyone to assume that he was dead. But Jason, Sonny, Sam and Claudia knew better, and they managed to track Anthony to Miami, Florida. Upon learning that his accounts had been frozen, he returned to Port Charles, and held Claudia hostage in Kate's house, asking for $20 million for Claudia's life. When Sonny shows up to the warehouse, Anthony gives him an ultimatum: let Claudia die, and capture Anthony, or let Anthony escape, and save Claudia, who is trapped on a roof with a bomb tied to her. Sonny was able to accomplish both, with Jason's help, and Anthony was sent to federal prison. Anthony has re-appeared on several occasionas, occasionally making multiple appearances a week.

He recently sent an associate, Joey Limbo, after Sonny, telling him not to worry if Claudia ended up dead, but to make sure Johnny did not get hurt. But after later hearing from Johnny that Claudia had been killed, most likely by Sonny, in retaliation for Michael's shooting, Anthony vowed revenge on Sonny.
