Isn't "Sometimes They Come Back" a Stephen King book? Will we see demon Foster and Annabelle devouring Luke and Monica?

These have been a prominent part of the show in the last few years, but that doesn't matter if the stories aren't there. What can you do with the Spencer family now? Guza has spent a decade telling viewers that Luke's biggest regret was having kids. Lulu is a self-righteous shrieker who has no relationship with anyone in her family beyond a daddy fixation on Luke. Lucky is a crybaby doormat who only perks up when he can tell a rape victim she is only worthwhile when she's bleeding in the snow. Ethan is a bastard in several sense of the word. And Luke is toxic waste. Carly is not a Spencer in anything but blood ties through a mother who no longer exists.

I wish the show would have the guts to write them all out.

The Spencers are worthless. I can't stand any of the characters. At least with the Quartermaines they continued to bring in and give story to younger generations to try and keep the family fresh. There are no more Spencers.. I think this Lucky and Lulu are 2 of the most unlikable characters on GH now. THis family certainly doesn't warrant the amount of story and attention they are getting and while I know ratings stink for everyone, while the mob side has always been dark and depressing,there has always been an element of surprise or events or action tied to it as lame as they were. TG and JJ may be great actors but watching a non stop character study on a soap is not worth anything if the story doesn';t entertain. IA also but writing them out leaves GH with what? Sonny and his kids and thats basically it.

As for the interview, there is no plan as I can see other than better balance which will help things. But stories? Where are they? SSDD

While I don't doubt that this show is probably gone by Sept. 2012, its kind of nice that GH has more than a year to wrap things up in a meaningful way. I just might have to start watching again once AMC goes off the air just to see if this lip service translates on screen. It's hard to remember a GH without Guza influence.

Was Scott Clifton really a fan fave?

Wally Kurth isn't doing much at DAYS (is he still there?), although to be honest I was never a fan of Ned, but it would give Tracy some story.

Yes he was. Scott and Georgie were a pretty popular couple when they were on and Scott C was definetly a fan fave.

I think Wally is recurring on Days. I think he fits good in the small supporting role they have for him, but like you said, he doesnt do a whole lot. I wouldnt be against a Ned recast. I always thought William deVry would be a good choice

Whats the point in bringing back a fan fave with a recast. Anything I guess that would warrant the Q's getting some MEANINGFUL story I am all for.

Having a character back that can give story to Tracy and Edward and bring a new generation of the Q's on. Plenty of popular actors have been recast. The character is needed, I don't care who plays him as long as he's cute and can act. It's not as if we have a ton of Q's to pick from at this point. Most of them are in the crypt.

Funny Dillon is mentioned bc Scott Clifton just weighed in on that

I’d be hunted down and murdered by GH fans if I didn’t ask Clifton if he would ever consider returning to the ABC soap if anything – God forbid! – happened to his B&B job.

“I don’t think I would go back,” he asserts. “Certainly, (not) as long as I am on B&B. If I were fired, and needed work, yes, I would come back to GH if they wanted me. But I don’t feel any desire to return to GH because I feel proud of what I was able to do over there at that point in my career. At this point, it would be hard and confusing for me to reprise Dillon at this stage. I’m having way too much fun here on B&B as Liam. Having said that, I think GH is a great show to work on but I prefer B&B, which may be selfish.”

THey already have a carbon copy of who Dillon was in a way in Spinelli. If they get rid of that clown I am all for Dillon coming back but this show already has too man men in that age bracket. And NO NO JPL from OLTL.

I guess I remembered Dillon pretty much being ruined to prop Lulu and then not doing much in his last year or two.

I'd love to see William DeVry on soaps again.

I don't think of Dillon as a big deal if they get rid of that awful Spinelli. It was his entrance to the canvas and GH's hard on for that actor that led to Dillon being written off. They no longer needed the quirky guy Dillon portrayed with Spinelli the clown
