General Hospital Revisits Port Charles’ Vampire Storyline.
In 1997, the “General Hospital” spin-off “Port Charles” debuted. “GH” characters crossing over to the half hour soap opera included Lucy (Lynn Herring) and Kevin (Jon Lindstrom). And while their current “GH” characters weren’t part of the canvas, actors Kelly Monaco (Sam) and Michael Easton (John) played lovers Livvie and vampire Caleb, when things took a supernatural turn. Per TV Guide, that history will be mined in current day Port Charles when Lucy runs into John and Sam at Kelly’s and thinks they are Caleb and Livvie.
Since Lucy was a vampire slayer on “Port Charles,” she acts on instinct and stabs John. He heads to the hospital, as she is hauled down to the PCPD. While in jail, Lucy is paid a visit by Duke Lavery, played by Ian Buchanan, who played vampire king Joshua Temple on “Port Charles.”
The storyline will kick off on January 14. It will remain to be seen if Lucy is going crazy or if the vampire storyline is actually crossing over to “General Hospital” ten years after “Port Charles” was cancelled.
Will Lucy’s reminder of her vampire slaying days be the thing that brings Kevin back to Port Charles? Keep watching to find out.
