Hot Topic: Ryan’s Return
From the moment GEN- ERAL HOSPITAL let us glimpse the person in the padded room next to the one occupied by Carly, it was basically inevitable that Ryan would wind up wandering the streets of Port Charles. And on a certain level, that predictability is problematic. Yet as soon as Jon Lindstrom’s Ryan was unleashed to interact with the locals, the situation got interesting. Would Lucy, Felicia and others notice the difference? And of course, the wild card waiting to be played was Kevin’s missing wife Laura. What better time to bring Genie Fran- cis back to the canvas than after replacing her alter ego’s husband with his evil twin, thus assuring that the beloved veteran would immediately be involved in big story? Truth be told, we can’t help hoping that the writers will take advantage of the fact they have a killer on the loose by allowing him to cull the overcrowded cast. Otherwise, what’s the point, seeing as Ryan has clearly not changed during his years of incarceration. Who should fall victim to Ryan’s wicked ways? That depends on who you ask and which characters they favor. Only time will tell, but until then… let the games begin!
