‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Laura Spencer Back to Port Charles – Genie Francis Hot Plot Ahead

General Hospital spoilers reveal that Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) is back to Port Charles soon. Fans last saw Laura in January after she wed Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom). She suddenly dropped out of the race for mayor of Port Charles to go to Europe and take care of her grandson Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel).

Genie told TV Insider in July, “I’m headed to Maine for the next month and then, after that, I’m back at General Hospital. I’m looking forward to coming home and I am really excited about this new invigorating storyline they have for Laura — I look forward to the next chapter of this prolific and historic character.”

GH – Laura unwittingly returns to Ryan Chamberlain

GH spoilers reveal that when Laura returns she will not come back to a loving reception from her husband. And there is a very good reason. Ryan Chamberlain recently knocked out his twin brother Kevin and switched places.

Everyone in Port Charles, including Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner), thought Ryan died 25 years ago. Ryan first appeared in Port Charles in 1992 as a pediatrician at General Hospital. Jon Lindstrom played both brothers when Kevin came the next year.

Ryan’s evil past on General Hospital

General Hospital spoilers history reminds that Felicia knew him in Texas as Todd Wilson, but did not recognize him due to amnesia after seeing him murder his wife. However, Ryan remembered her and became obsessed with her and even held her hostage in a cabin.

After his arrest for attempted murder, Ryan switched places with Kevin and escaped from a mental hospital. He came to Felicia and Mac Scorpio’s (John J. York) wedding with a bomb as a gift.

After another arrest, Ryan escaped and kidnapped Georgie, Felicia’s infant daughter. Kevin, Mac, and Felicia found him at a fun house and rescued Georgie. Ryan supposedly died in an explosion there but now we know Kevin saved his twin.

General Hospital showrunner excited about return

“We’re very excited, and we’ve got a big story for Genie,” Frank Valentini, GH‘s executive producer, told TV Insider. “On her first day back, she jumps right in. I can’t tease it more than that, but it’s a Genie Francis story. That’s all anyone needs to know. It’s going to be awesome.”

Perhaps that amazing story has something to do with her former lover, Stefan Cassadine (Stephen Nichols). General Hospital spoilers say a Cassadine is returning to Port Charles and viewers recently saw the hand of a man who sported a ring with the Cassadine crest.

Stefan Cassadine coming back for Laura’s story?

General Hospital spoilers tease the mystery man just might be Stefan. Although he died in 2003, soap fans know that this favorite character may not stay dead. A leaked spoiler indicates that Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Laura are involved in a storyline with the mysterious Cassadine.

Plus, Stephen Nichols is free to return to General Hospital. He recently posted on Instagram this summer about leaving Days of Our Lives after portraying Steve “Patch” Johnson for many years so stay tuned to GH to find out what happens with Laura.
