General Hospital actor Tristan Rogers, who portrays iconic Robert Scorpio, now wants fan voices heard as GH resumes shooting new episodes. Should the ABC soap pick up where they left off? Or, they could jump ahead and assume current stories were resolved and play them out in flashbacks. Fans weigh in on what Tristan asked about the return to filming.
Tristan Rogers Reaches Out to General Hospital Fans
GH veteran Tristan Rogers, AKA Robert Scorpio, wants to hear fans’ opinion. Recently, he asked GH devotees if they would prefer the writers to jump forward and wrap up the stories already in progress. That way, they could move on to new material while providing closure through flashbacks.
No doubt, there are a few General Hospital plots that have been dragging for quite some time now. And, some viewers would like them closed. Check out what the loyal GH fanbase has to say about how things should play out moving forward on the daytime sudsfest.
GH Fans Speak Their Minds
General Hospital viewers don’t hold back when it comes to expressing how they feel about this. Many viewers are on “Team Time Jump” and want a reset for the soap. They urge the writers to take this time away to refresh themselves on GH history that fans know well. Also, many people would like to see some current storylines wrapped up and done.
Two stories some fans are tired of are Peter August (Wes Ramsey) and Nelle Hayes (Chloe Lanier) plots. They want fresh new stories that don’t drag for six months or longer on General Hospital. Plus, a lot of folks prefer plots focused on soap veterans rather than newer characters.
Besides that, one fun suggestion was a murder-mystery focused on Peter — simply because there would be so many suspects. The same goes for Nelle. While people surely have a lot to say, they fear the powers that be won’t listen. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what they think is best for the future of General Hospital. But Robert Scorpio’s alter-ego Tristan Rogers is at least encouraging them to speak up.
Which Way Will General Hospital Go?
Of course, there’s no way to be sure exactly what the GH writers will do once production is up and running. Hopefully, they’ll take into consideration what the people would like to see happen. Clearly, that would be what’s best because the viewers are the heart of the show.
If General Hospital does consider a fast-forward in time, they could look to Days of our Lives. That soap did a one-year time leap and then peeped back with flashbacks to unfold facts. It sounds a lot like what the Robert Scorpio actor suggested. Maybe Tristan Rogers is a DOOL fan…
Either way, there’s sure to be loads of drama and suspense in store. Tune in to GH as soon as all-new episodes return to see Tristan Rogers in action as Robert Scorpio. And, if the ABC sudser will continue where it left off or jump ahead.
