GH: Edward's funeral


Recommended Posts

My expectation is that Edward receives as great a send-off as Asa got on OLTL and what Palmer got on AMC.

Asa I agree with, awesome send-off, it was very much Ron and Frank's opening salvo at OLTL. It was so well plotted, especially in a case where the actor, Phil Carey, was still very much alive and open to do recurring appearences.

Palmer's on the other hand, it was good for AMC in it's last incarnations, but still lacking. I do not believe Nina and Daisy would have just slummed it up at Tad's house. His children and grand children were missing: Ross, Andrew, Petey, Mickey, Bobby. Even his only remaining kin in PV, JR, was not at the memorial!

I know Rena and Wally have some rough personal history which may have prevented her from returning in the past but I believe she would do it in this case.

I think that Rena implied in SOD only a few years ago that Wally had a hand in GH not even extending her the invitation to reprise Lois when they cast Lesli Kay.

I loved Rena, but I thought Lesli was awesome with the material she got. I would love to see her back full time on GH.

yeah it's not going to be this month, Jason's last day is the 22nd

You mean potentially, GH will not make this funeral all about the Mob hitman? One can only hope.

A recast CAN work, they recast Bill Horton on DOOL for Alice's funeral, he fit so perfectly that everyone has wanted him back full time as Bill since.

I have to admit, I do not know if I got lost in the awesome writing and charactrization for the three weeks in honor of Ms. Reid, or he was truly as captivating as I rememember, but John Martin rocked as Dr. Bill Spencer. I would love to see him on the show full time and reign in the Horton clan. Maybe compete against the big man Mr. DiMera himself for the love of Kate Roberts.

I don't see why they should recast Audrey, who was never especially close with Edward anyway. I have no desire to see Audrey with a recast.

ditto.

Of course I'd love to see Gail and Lee back, but we can't diminish Bobbie and Monica's friendship. They've been best friends for many years, many of which Gail wasn't around. It wouldn't make sense for a woman's father-in-law to die and her best friend not be there to comfort her.

I thought Bobbie/Monica had a rocky relationship. Wasn't there a time Monica thought Bobbie was interested in Alan? Am I remembering things wrong?

I have to wonder if Jacklyn would return for but a cameo at this point.

There was a very, very brief time in 1995 when Monica thought Bobbie was having an affair with Alan. But no, they did not have a rocky relationship. In fact, when Emily died, Bobbie was the only person Monica would open up to.

I don't understand why they don't bring Tracy's sons back... the funeral seems like a great opportunity to re-introduce Ned or Dillon. And Jane was off the GH canvas for long stretches at a time over the years... how great would it be to see Tracy trying to get on with a daughter she gave up for adoption many years earlier? Tracy has always had an unexpectedly tender relationship with Lulu.. I think it would be a great treat.

As for who is coming back, I agree that it makes no sense to recast a character who will only be on screen for a few days at most. I also agree it makes no sense to bring back characters who had no real connection to Edward (or the Quartermaines). In cases like this, I always wonder whether the show will err on the side of pleasing the fans or goosing the ratings

Yeah, but Gail is Monica's adopted mother, and Lee is Edward's best friend.

Is or was? Ive been watching GH regularly for 15 years and this is new to me. I cant recall them interacting at all last time Lee was around

They were best friends the entire duration they were on together. Towards the end of Peter Hansen's run as Lee, you never saw them together because he was mainly on PC, but they were probably one of GH's longest friendships. Lee was Edward's right hand man for around 25 years.

Yeah they were definitely best friends and I was always surprised Edward didn't mention him much in the last few years.

Thats why I said was and not is. They havent been portrayed as best friends or even friends in at least 15 years. Lee would qualify as an old friend, not his current best friend

15 years is an exaggeration. More like 8 years. Lee & Gail's last appearance was at Lila's funeral. And even at that, Lee & Gail were always more like family to the Q's given that Gail is Monica's adopted mother.

I did not know that Lee was close to Edward. When I really started getting into GH, both the Baldwins were recurring characters. Gail was on a lot, and Lee was more more mentoned but not seen. This only emphasizes more the need for the Baldwins to make a cameo.
