Brook Lynn Ashton is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. On the series, she is the daughter of Ned Ashton and Lois Cerullo, and was named after her mother's hometown of Brooklyn.

León is also of Italian descent, similar to the character of Brook Lynn.

Originally played by actress Brooke Radding in 1996, the character was last portrayed by actress Adrianne León when her birth date was revised to 1987 starting in 2004. Leon was nominated for two awards for the role in 2005: the Soap Opera Digest "Outstanding Female Newcomer Award", and "Outstanding Younger Actress" in the Daytime Emmy Awards. Leon continued to play the character until 2006. It was announced in 2010 that Leon would return to the show as Brook Lynn that May.[1] She left the series again in 2011.[2]

Brook Lynn is raised by her mother after her parents' divorce, but lives with her father as a teenager. She is a talented song writer and singer and her mother, a band manager and record company executive, often pressures her to pursue a singing career. Brook dates Diego Alcazar for a time, but they later break up. She is also involved in adventures with Georgie Jones, her uncle Dillon Quartermaine, and Sage Alcazar, who competes with her for a recording contract. The obnoxious Sage is murdered by serial killer Mary Bishop after she is locked in the Quartermaine freezer by a fed-up Georgie. Sage is a sitting duck for the killer, who mistakes her for Brook's adopted cousin Emily Quartermaine. After her death, Brook puts a poignant song written by Sage to music and records it. Sage's uncle Lorenzo Alcazar blames Brook and the other teens for her death, but is brought to tears when he hears Brook perform the song. The following year, Brook is a victim of the Port Charles Stalker, who drugs girls and takes pictures of them. The stalker later turns out to be Sage's cousin Diego, who had read her journals and decided to get revenge on Brook and the others on her behalf. Soon after, Brook decided to leave Port Charles and return to New York to pursue her music career.

Brook Lynn was convinced to return to town in 2010 by Carly Corinthos Jacks, who promised to pay Brook if she came between Dante Falconeri, whom Brook grew up with in Brooklyn, and his girlfriend, Lulu Spencer. Carly hired Brook Lynn to sing at the Metro Court and purchased her an apartment across from Dante's. Brook succeeds in drugging Dante at a bar and attempts to have sex with him in his apartment, but Lulu arrives to stop this and blames Brook entirely. Feeling guilty, Brook later tells Lulu that she had been working for Carly, but Carly lies and claims she was only trying to test Dante to see if he was worthy of Lulu. Lulu believes Carly, and continues to blame Brook. Finding Brook in a state of devastation, the wealthy Nikolas Cassadine invites her into his castle and hires her to be his escort for a formal dinner in France. While he teaches her etiquette, the two begin a flirtation, and then a romance. Brook eventually moves into the Cassadine castle and continues to work as Nikolas' escort at formal events. She is soon at odds with Elizabeth Webber, who previously cheated with Nikolas while engaged to his brother Lucky Spencer and believes along with Nikolas that he is the father of her infant son Aiden (Lucky is the true father). Elizabeth accuses Brook of using Nikolas for his wealth, and Brook in turn claims Elizabeth is using Aiden as an excuse to get back with Nikolas.

Dominique Baldwin (née Stanton; formerly Taub) is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. She was portrayed by Tawny Fere Ellis from June 4 to November 14, 1991 and Shell Danielson from December 3, 1991 to May 5, 1993. Danielson reprised the role on Port Charles, GH's spinoff, from December 9, 1997 to January 2, 1998.

Storylines[edit]

Dominique arrived on the show, deaf and unhappily married to Leopold Taub. She and her husband lived in a loveless marriage on the Stanton estate named Serenity. Her misfortunes changed when she fell in love with Mac Scorpio who had accidentally wandered onto the grounds of her family's estate. After falling in love with Mac, Dominique divorced her husband and went to Port Charles to find Mac. When she found Mac, she convinced him that she needed protection and asked for his help in keeping Leopold away. Leopold came to town after Dominique and he and Mac fought over her. During a gunfight, the loud shots restored Dominique's hearing, but Leopold had her committed to Shadybrook Sanitarium after becoming her guardian. He was later killed when he became involved in a cartel to take over global business, and in his will he left Dominique a large sum of money. After his death, Dominique was able to leave Shadybrook and resumed her relationship with Mac. She later broke up with Mac after she became jealous of his relationship with his ex-sister-in-law Holly Sutton. Dominique then moved on with her life and became partners with Julia Barrett and Scott Baldwin in Deception perfume. Connor Olivera, the son of Sean Donely, pursued Dominique and the two had a brief relationship. Dominique later joined Scott for a weekend in Vegas, and when she woke up from a hangover a few days later, she was shocked to learn that she and Scott were married. After getting the news, Connor ended his relationship with Dominique and left town. After returning to Port Charles, Scott and Dominique filed divorce papers and decided that they would call off the divorce if they enjoyed being married to each other. The two ended up falling in love and decided to stay married.

In 1993, Dominique began to suffer from severe headaches and dizzy spells and she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and only months to live. Scott was devastated by the news but he and Dominique decided to have a second lavish wedding where all their friends and family could attend. Dominique wanted to give Scotty a child before she died and that became possible when Lucy Coe agreed to become a surrogate for them. Lucy successfully carried Dominique's fertilized egg, and Dominique lived to hear the heartbeat of her child, but sadly did not live long enough to see the baby be born. After hearing the baby's heartbeat, Dominique died in Scott's arms on a beautiful fall day overlooking the trees. In her will, Dominique left Scott a large amount of money for him and their child. Months later, Lucy gave birth to Dominique and Scott's daughter, and Lucy and Scott decided to name the baby Serena after Dominique's family's estate Serenity.

Dominique's spirit returned in 1997 on the soap opera Port Charles, to comfort her daughter Serena who was in the middle of an ugly custody battle started by Dominique's uncle Rex Stanton, who only wanted all of Dominique's money. Dominique also appeared to Scott and took him on a Christmas Carol type journey by showing him his past, present, and future. She showed him the consequences that he would face if he did not open up his heart to love again, and with Dominique's help, Scott was finally able to let her go and move on with his life.

Serena Lee Baldwin is a fictional character (born onscreen on December 7, 1993) from the ABC soap opera General Hospital, and its now-defunct spin-off Port Charles. She was portrayed by Carly Schroeder. Serena's wealthy mother, Dominique Stanton Baldwin, was dying and wanted to leave a child for her husband Scott Baldwin. As a consequence, Serena was born via a surrogate mother, Lucy Coe.

Storylines[edit]

Serena was born via surrogate mother Lucy Coe when it was discovered that her mother Dominique Stanton Baldwin was dying, but wanted to leave her husband Scott Baldwin with a child. Lucy made Scott and Dominique's dream possible by carrying Serena until birth. Scott and Lucy named her Serena, after the Stanton family estate named Serenity. Soon after Serena's birth, Scott took her and fled to Canada to hide from the mob that was trying to steal the fortune that was left to him and Serena.

In 1997, Scott returned to Port Charles without Serena and at first believed that Lucy had kidnapped her. However, he soon realized he was wrong and not long after was hit by a car, but that did not deter his search for his missing daughter. It was later revealed that Danielle Ashley, Dominique's half-sister and Rex Stanton, their uncle had taken Serena and planned to use her to gain access to her trust fund. A worn down Danielle ended up admitting the truth to Scott and he was reunited with his daughter. Rex however pushed forward and made Scott look like an unfit father. His plan worked and he gained custody of Serena, but Lucy married Rex in order to keep an eye on the little girl that she had carried and loved. Rex was eventually forced to come clean with his deception and he was arrested for his crimes.

Serena was again reunited with Scott and this time for good. Serena and Scott began to spend time with Eve Lambert, which caused Lucy to become extremely jealous. Lucy came up with a plan to gain back their attention by looking like a hero and siphoned the gas out of Eve's car, so she could rescue them when their car ran out of gas. Her plan backfired however when they were in an accident and Serena lost her eyesight. After a successful surgery, she regained her sight and Serena was ecstatic when her parents, Scott and Lucy eventually got married and adopted a baby girl they named Christina Baldwin. Unfortunately Christina, was taken by her biological mother and her loss caused the end of Scott and Lucy's marriage. The tide turned and Serena was thrilled when Christina's biological mother Julie Devlin returned her to Scott and Lucy, after she found out that she was dying and could no longer care for Christina. Later that year on Christmas Eve, Lucy married Kevin Collins and Serena was happy to gain an older sister named Olivia Locke. A few years later, Serena packed up her things and left with Lucy, Kevin, and Christina for Paris, France.

Mentions[edit]

It was mentioned in late July 2008 that Scott and Serena had taken a long vacation on his sailboat in the Caribbean. Upon his return, Scott learned that his son, Serena's half brother, Logan Hayes, had been murdered by Lulu Spencer. On September 10, 2008, Serena was mentioned again when maniacal mob boss Anthony Zacchara threatened to kill her if Scott continued his case against Johnny Zacchara for the murder of his son, Logan. Scott remarked that Serena was somewhere Anthony couldn't find her, leading Anthony to reveal that Serena was still living in Paris, France with Lucy and Kevin. Serena was last mentioned on October 30, 2008. After Laura Spencer was kidnapped by Scott, Lulu called Serena in Paris to see if by chance Scott had taken her there. Serena said she'd try to call Scott, but wanted to get off the phone, leading some to believe that Scott and Laura had joined Serena, Christina, Lucy and Kevin in Paris.

Stefan Darius Mikkosovich Cassadine[4] is a fictional character played by actor Stephen Nichols from June 28, 1996 to January 16, 2002 and June 2, 2003 to October 16, 2003 on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.

Stefan is the second son of villain Mikkos Cassadine — who once attempted to freeze the world with a weather machine in the an infamous 1980s Luke and Laura storyline — and his equally evil wife Helena. The complex and often dark character alternated between playing protective uncle to nephew Nikolas Cassadine and tender would-be lover of Laura Spencer, and his obsessive vendetta against Luke Spencer, whom he blamed for the death of his brother Stavros Cassadine and for his own loss of Laura.

Stefan first came to Port Charles in 1996 with his teenage nephew Nikolas Cassadine, the secret son of Laura Spencer and Stefan's older brother Stavros. The Cassadines are descended from a titled, aristocratic Russian family who fled to Greece following the 1917 Russian Revolution. Stefan had raised Nikolas since infancy after Laura had escaped the captivity of Stavros and been forced to leave Nikolas behind, after Helena "murdered" Laura's mother, Lesley Webber, when she tried to contact him.

Stefan battled his mother Helena Cassadine for control of Nikolas and control of the family company and was official head of the family by the time Nikolas was seven. His mother, emotionally abusive to him during his childhood, viewed him as weak and soft, which he was only in comparison to the more homicidal members of the Cassadine family. Helena strongly favored his older brother Stavros and alternately ignored and belittled the more sensitive Stefan. Stefan loved and protected Alexis Davis, who was raised as his first cousin but later turned out to be his half-sister, both children of Mikkos. He paid for her to attend boarding school in the United States as a teenager and encouraged her to go into the legal profession. However, he also dominated her and expected complete loyalty and obedience from her. Alexis was charged with doing much of the legwork for "Timoria", Stefan's planned vendetta against the Spencer family and General Hospital, both of which Stefan blamed for the presumed death of his brother Stavros. In their first years on the show, fans detected romantic chemistry in Stefan's scenes with Alexis. Stefan expressed disapproval of Alexis's relationship with Ned Ashton and she later went to great lengths to break up his engagement to Katherine Bell, whom she disapproved of. Fans of the romantic pairing called themselves the "Gutter Rats", though no actual romantic relationship was ever alluded to in their scenes together.

Laura Spencer contacted Stefan after her baby daughter Lulu Spencer was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and was in need of a bone marrow transplant from a matched donor. Nikolas turned out to be a match. True to the love-hate relationship Stefan always had with Laura, Stefan forced Laura to beg for her daughter's life. He then allowed Nikolas to donate the life-saving bone marrow to his sister. At the same time, Stefan launched his Timoria plot, to exact revenge on Luke and Laura for (presumably) killing his brother, Stavros, while he was attempted to rape Laura Spencer fifteen years prior. Stefan later married Luke's sister Bobbie Spencer as part of his revenge plot against the Spencers. The marriage ended in divorce after Stefan caught Bobbie investigating his actions against the Spencers.

In the intervening years, Stefan had an affair with and later became engaged to Katherine Bell. This relationship was derailed for a time after his "cousin" Alexis produced proof that Katherine was Stefan's half-sister Natasha. This was eventually exposed as a falsehood, when it turned out that Alexis was the real Natasha. This revelation rocked Stefan and he reacted as a true Cassadine. Stefan banished Alexis, but eventually forgave her. During the grand Bacchanalia on Spoon Island, a ball celebrating her engagement to Stefan, Katherine fell off a parapet at the mansion, the victim of a failed attempt to murder Helena by Luke and Alexis. Katherine was rescued by Helena Cassadine and restored to health, but died in a second fall from the parapet (this time assisted by Helena) soon after her return.

Meanwhile, Laura was harboring a secret about Nikolas, which strained her relationship with her husband and family. Eventually, Luke discovered that she had slept with Stefan and believed that Stefan, not Stavros, was Nikolas' father, and had lied to him about it. Meanwhile, Stefan had to face Nikolas about the secret that Stefan, too, had kept. Nikolas lashed out at Stefan, moving out and depending heavily on his brother, Lucky Spencer, and his friend, Emily Quartermaine, for support. Stefan did not approve of Nikolas's choices for companions, feeling that they were below his stature as a Cassadine. In particular, Stefan felt that Nikolas should always be wary of Spencers, and not trust them as he had come to trust Lucky. Eventually the two reconciled. Nikolas had always loved Stefan like a father, after all.

DNA testing later proved that Stavros was actually Nikolas's father, much to Stefan's bitter disappointment. The damage was already done to Luke and Laura, however, and they divorced. Shortly before Luke and Laura divorced, Stefan and Laura began a relationship, and Stefan felt hopeful that he could regain his relationship with Laura, the woman he had so loved and hated over the years. Unfortunately, their relationship ended bitterly, after Stefan learned that Laura's presumed dead son, Lucky, was alive, and temporarily withheld the information from her. Laura eventually learned about this from Luke, and violently confronted Stefan. Laura could not forgive him for the lie, and Stefan finally accepted that he and Laura had no future.

Stefan later fell in love with Quartermaine cousin Chloe Morgan and was framed for her murder when his back-from-the-dead brother, Stavros, killed her. The plot was eventually revealed and Stefan was cleared.

He appeared more aggressive and continually more deranged and desperate in his final year on the show. Stefan returned to the show after an absence. He had plotted an arranged marriage for Nikolas with Lydia Karenin, a wealthy Russian heiress, to restore the Cassadine family's wealth. He ordered Nikolas to marry Lydia, but Nikolas was reluctant to follow through. Stefan attempted to kill Nikolas's real love, Emily Quartermaine, but pushed Lucky's girlfriend Summer (a Laura look-alike), off the cliff by mistake. His secret was well hidden, though, he thought. Stefan's loan from Lorenzo Alcazar was due (this loan transpired as Stefan re-entered the show); Stefan and Lorenzo's henchmen fought quite a bit with him in his final weeks. At this time as well, Luke Spencer kidnapped and put Stefan on "trial" in front of the entire Port Charles television audience, taped by Dillon Quartermaine. Luke intended for Stefan to admit to the attempted murder of Emily Bowen-Quartermaine and actual murder of Summer Holloway. Stefan apparently died after he was burned (and disfigured) and later stabbed in a knife fight with Luke Spencer.

Luke was arrested for Stefan's murder but was released when Stefan's suicide note was found, where Stefan admitted that he had set Luke up for his staged "murder."

John "Jagger" Cates is a fictional character on the popular ABC soap opera General Hospital. The role was originated on April 8, 1992 by Antonio Sabàto, Jr., who portrayed him until 1994, and again briefly in the fall of 1995. In 2008 Sabato would reprised the role during the second season of General Hospital: Night Shift.[5][6]

1990s[edit]

Sabàto starred alongside former 90s co-stars in the summer of 2008 when he appeared on Night Shift.

John Cates was separated from his siblings Michael and Gina after they were orphaned as children. John assumed the edgier name of Jagger, and fell in with a rough crowd. But Jagger's heart was still good—all it took to bring that out of him was some tender loving care from young Karen Wexler. In 1992, thugs broke into Kelly's Diner and roughed up owner Ruby Anderson and attempted to rob the place. One of them, a homeless hooligan named Jagger Cates, was shot trying to protect Ruby. Ruby not only forgave him, she gave him a job and a place to live.

Wealthy teen Jason Quartermaine started working on Dr. Tom Hardy's new volunteer "Teen Hot Line." Along with freshman Robin Scorpio and fellow junior Karen Wexler, Jason had a place on the crisis line to help teens in trouble. Karen and Jason grew close, but before long Karen got involved with Jagger Cates, a drop-out with a sweet disposition.

After a storm, Jason, Jagger and Karen were stranded on an island. On the island, they encountered Cal Atkins and his convict brother, Joseph Atkins, who had broken out of jail. Cal dragged Karen to the top of a cliff and tried to rape her. Jagger saved her. Jason got there in time to see Cal plummet to the shore below! Convinced that Cal was dead, the teens made a pact to keep what had happened a secret. Cal was actually alive and well with his brother. Back home, a shoot-out occurred. Jagger suffered a minor wound. Cal was arrested. Atkins escaped and sought out Bobbie, who had befriended him in letters to his jail cell. The escaped convict took her hostage and tried to rape her. Atkins was caught when he tried to escape in a police helicopter flown by Mac Scorpio.

Teenager Brenda Barrett turned up on her big sister Julia's doorstep. Julia persuaded Brenda to move in with her and enroll in Port Charles High. Jagger Cates also enrolled at PC High. Brenda was instantly attracted to him. She could tell he liked Karen, who Brenda instantly disliked. Neither Jagger nor Brenda liked school. But Jagger liked Brenda's style and they fell into each other's arms and made love. For good reason, Brenda Barrett was insecure about her relationship with Jagger Cates. Jagger and Karen had fallen in love. Karen began having disturbing flashbacks. An old boyfriend of Karen's mother, Rhonda, came to stay with her and Karen. Soon after seeing her mother's old boyfriend Ray Conway, long repressed memories flooded back to Karen because he had abused her when she was a child!

Jagger located his sister, Gina, and hired Felicia Jones and Mac Scorpio to find his 16-year-old brother. At a wild party, someone slipped "ecstasy" into Karen's drink. A kid named Stone came to her aid. He turned out to be Jagger's brother, Mike. Karen felt unworthy of Jagger, who had started to box with Marco Dane as his manager. She broke up with Jagger who was comforted by Brenda Barrett. A troubled Karen went to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge, run by Sonny Corinthos. Stone lived in Sonny's apartment above the club. Soon, Karen was addicted to stripping, Sonny, and pills! Karen kept her new life a secret while she worked at Kelly's and the hospital and went to class at Port Charles University. Jagger and "Stone" were reunited.

After Jagger and Stone argued over Stone's going back to school, Jagger followed Stone to the Paradise Lounge. He saw Karen stripping! Later, a stunned Jagger found Karen in bed with Sonny and beat Sonny up. Sonny put a hit out on Jagger. Marco promised Sonny a piece of Jagger's boxing action in exchange for Jagger's life. Sonny liked the idea of "owning" Jagger and agreed. Slipping into the strip joint, Brenda's eyes popped when she saw a drugged-out Karen taking her clothes off. Brenda saw it all, and told everyone. Karen's friends and family rallied around her during her recovery. In his next fight, Jagger refused to follow Sonny's orders to take a dive. Jagger and Karen ran away and finally made love.

By 1994, Stone and Jagger finally rekindled the warm relationship they'd had as kids. Jagger stopped boxing and decided to become a cop. He and Karen, who had received a scholarship to study medicine at Northwestern University, got engaged. Before Jagger and Karen's wedding day, a suicidal patient at the hospital almost plunged out a window with Karen! A new orderly, Miguel Morez, saved them both. Miguel saw how Jagger felt about Karen and had a pang. He had once been in love like that with a girl named Lily.

Jagger stopped his brother Stone from driving the getaway van that would carry Frank Smith out of jail. Tragedy struck when the bike Jagger was riding crashed and he was knocked out! Jagger recuperated from his motorcycle spill in time to marry Karen in a touching wedding ceremony. It was a day filled with love—and surprises. Karen's mother revealed to Karen that Scott Baldwin was her father. Karen, overjoyed by the news, happily hopped on the back of her new husband's motorcycle and sped off to a new life in San Francisco, where Karen would attend medical school to become a doctor and Jagger would become a police officer.

In 1995, Stone Cates had come down with the flu. As his girlfriend Robin Scorpio nursed him with chicken soup, he convinced her she should go to Yale. Stone assured Robin he'd been tested and was HIV negative. They made love for the first time. Mac was furious when he found out, but he came to realize he had to let Robin grow up. When Stone could not shake the flu, tests revealed the worst possible news. Stone was HIV positive. Stone could not bring himself to reveal the deeply tragic news to Robin.

Jagger returned to Port Charles to visit with Stone, luckily getting the chance to spend a little time with his brother before Stone died later that year.

Karen returned to Port Charles in 1997 as a young doctor in General Hospital's intern program, where she discovered she was going to be working closely with Dr. Joe Scanlon. Karen and Joe had been childhood friends in Port Charles. Although Karen was now married to Jagger Cates, a police officer stationed in San Francisco, she was still attracted to Joe, and Joe was attracted to Karen.

Karen's marriage to Jagger was on shaky ground but she wanted to make it work. Although they constantly found themselves in close situations, Karen and Joe resisted their impulses as Karen tried to stay faithful to her husband. Afraid of her feelings for Joe and needing to see Jagger, Karen went to San Francisco. While there, Karen learned that Jagger had been having an affair and that their marriage was truly over. Karen returned to Port Charles and her friendship with Joe grew deeper and the two began dating.

2008: General Hospital: Night Shift[edit]

In 2008 Jagger returns to Port Charles with his five-year-old son Stone, named after his deceased brother.[6] It is revealed that Stone's mother is suing for custody of their son. While in Port Charles, Stone is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder; at first, Jagger is in denial about it.[7] Writer Sri Rao explained the effect on Jagger he wanted to portray, stating "The focus of our story is mostly on how it affects Jagger as a parent. ... It's a very overwhelming and complicated emotional journey that a parent goes on when their child is diagnosed with autism. It starts with denial, embarrassment, confusion, sadness, and ultimately, acceptance. That's the arc we'll see Jagger go through over the course of this season."[7] Rao reached out to Autism Speaks to make sure he told the story "authentically, responsibly and realistically".[7] Throughout the show, the audience sees Jagger slowly come to terms with Stone's illness. At the end of season, both characters Jagger and Stone return to San Francisco.

Their marriage went through tough times, starting with Ned telling Mac Scorpio that Sonny was a mobster, after Lois confided this to him. It was Ned's family, however that put strain on their union. Lois wanted Ned to distance himself from the dysfunctional Quartermaines. His mother, Tracy Quartermaine, hated Lois from the first moment they met.

After Tracy put ELQ in financial jeopardy, she left town, but Ned was left to clean up the mess. Lois asked Ned to choose either his job or her and their unborn daughter. Ned chose ELQ. Hurt, Lois left Ned and returned to Bensonhurst. Lois later gave birth to a baby girl, who she named Brook Lynn after her favorite city.

Sometime later, Lois returned to Port Charles, feeling guilty for keeping Ned away from his daughter. During this time, it was revealed that Ned had had an affair with his uncle's wife, Monica Quartermaine. She then overheard him blackmailing his cousin, Justus Ward. Lois could not handle it, and again left town. It was at this time that she also help comfort Brenda, after Sonny left her at the altar.

Years later, Lois returned to Port Charles to look for her and Ned's now teenage daughter, Brook Lynn, after she ran away. After Lois and Ned located Brook Lynn, Lois decided to return to Port Charles. Not long after her return, Lila Quartermaine died. Soon afterwards, Lois began dating Lorenzo Alcazar. Brook Lynn was very upset about this, and decided to start a girl band at Lois' request. Brook Lynn, Sage Alcazar, Georgie Jones, and Maxie Jones were going to fake the audition. But after Maxie was nowhere to be found, Dillon was forced to dress in drag and pose as a woman. Things got a bit out of control when Simon, the record producer, began hitting on Dillon at The Cellar. Those plans failed as the storyline ended, especially after Sage was murdered by Mary Bishop. Lois continued to date Alcazar. Alcazar's feelings for Carly Corinthos began to return, and Lois began to fade into the background. After actress Lesli Kay was placed from contract to recurring status in March 2005, Lois dropped off canvas. Much later, it was explained that Ned, Lois and Brook Lynn had gone back to Manhattan to continue in the music industry.

They were mentioned by Sonny Corinthos who referred to her and her sister. On August 25, he called her mother Gloria, and asked her how to get a hold of Olivia Falconeri. Olivia later references the two as "tearing it up in L.A. and they always visit Gloria, that's Lois's mother, whenever they're in Bensonhurst."

On May 25, 2010, it is was mentioned by Carly that Lois is managing several bands in Europe and currently lives in London.

Dr. Kevin Collins arrived in Port Charles on General Hospital in the early part of 1994. He came to town to help rehabilitate his identifical twin brother, serial killer Ryan Chamberlain, who was in a mental hospital. Kevin felt his brother was as much a victim as the women he killed and thought he could help his brother get well with his own therapeutic methods. He had a hard time being accepted by the citizens of Port Charles because he had looked identical to a man everyone feared and hated. Eventually, everyone came around, including Felicia Jones, who was terrorized by Ryan for almost two years. However, her fiance, Mac Scorpio, was instantly suspicious and hostile to Kevin. Kevin visited his brother, Ryan, several times and thought he was making progress. However, he was unaware Ryan was using him to escape the mental hospital.

One night, Kevin visited Ryan in his room alone. Ryan found out enough about Kevin to knock him out and impersonated him back in Port Charles. Kevin eventually managed to prove to authorities and hospital personnel he was indeed Kevin and not Ryan. He raced to the church to stop Ryan from ruining Felicia's wedding to Mac. After that ordeal was over and Ryan was apprehended, Kevin saw him at the prison and confronted him. Kevin wiped his hands of Ryan again. However, Ryan wasn't through with Kevin. He managed to escape the prison and impersonate Kevin to keep Felicia's baby, Georgie Jones, at General Hospital. Kevin helped Mac and Felicia find Ryan and Georgie in 1995. Ryan killed himself instead of being apprehended. Kevin still felt some guilt by some Ryan's fate.

Kevin found himself befriending and counseling Lucy Coe. Lucy came to Kevin with a moral dilemma. He helped her as best he could, but found himself attracted to her while at the same time as he was exasperated with her. They started dating soon after. They got closer when Kevin found himself haunted by the death of his former lover, Grace. Kevin confided in Lucy that Grace had drowned in a car he was in and he was to blame for her death. Lucy helped him work through the past. On June 2, 1997, Lindstrom brought the character to spin-off Port Charles, where he remained until the final episode on October 3, 2003. On July 16, 2004, Kevin and Lucy return to Port Charles to attend the funeral of Lila Quartermaine.

On January 30, 2013, Kevin returns again and visits Lucy in Ferncliff after she stabbed John McBain, believing him to be Caleb Morley. Later, he uses his psychiatric skills to aid Lulu Spencer-Falconeri when she has amnesia after being kidnapped by Stavros Cassadine.

William "Bill" Eckert is a fictional character on ABC soap opera General Hospital. He was the redheaded Spencer family cousin that was a dead ringer for Luke Spencer. He was portrayed by longtime General Hospital favorite, Anthony Geary from 1991 to 1993.

Bill Eckert was a member of the crew on the SS Tracy. The Greenbelts, an environmental safety organization, protested the arrival of the Quartermaine boat. It had just exploded and sank in Port Charles harbor. Harlan Barrett of Barrett Enterprises came to Port Charles to salvage the SS Tracy. He was impressed with Bill Eckert, who invented a unique machine which raised the ship. Harlan hired Bill as chief engineer with the promise of upward advancement in the company.

Bill is the cousin of the Spencer family who had just come to town with his young son, Sly Eckert, and recently divorced form his mother, Nancy. Bill's father died of a heart attack and Bill and his sister, Jenny Eckert, came into a large inheritance. Bill, now a wealthy man, moved into an abandoned lighthouse with his son Sly and Finian O'Toole, whom Bill had hired as a housekeeper. Bill was now dating Harlan's marketing genius daughter, Julia Barrett.Harlan brought her to Port Charles to run the cannery with ace in command, Bill Eckert.

Harlan Barrett, Leopold Taub, Cesar Faison, and Larry Ashton formed a cartel to control global business via the use of a toxic substance, carbon disulfide, manufactured at a cannery they purchased as a clever ruse for their operations and a place to brew the drug with which they intended to rule the world. Bill and Jenny were both kept in the dark about the cannery's real intentions.

Meanwhile, Nancy having heard about Bill's newfound wealth, promptly wanted custody of Sly. Bill saw the dollar signs in her eyes and would not give in to her blackmail. Nancy began spying on operations at the cannery and discovered the carbon disulfide. She used it to make Bill appear inebriated at Sly's custody hearing. The Cartel was worried with Nancy poking around and they wanted to make a still clueless Bill their newest member. The cartel then decided to eliminate Nancy.

Faison tried to use mind control to program Anna Scorpio to kill Nancy, but Anna and Robert Scorpio were on to Faison's plan. With the aid of a psychiatrist, she become immune to it. The Cartel's goal was attained anyway as Nancy was mysteriously murdered and Bill was the prime suspect! The real killer turned out to Bill's housekeeper and Sly's baby-sitter, Finian, who had a heated argument with Nancy and accidentally killed her.

Bill was brought into the Cartel, but a deliriously wicked Faison wanted Bill to prove himself before he was completely accepted. Bill's assignment was to kill Faison's nemesis, Robert Scorpio. By this time, Bill and Robert were good friends, so a "faux death" was arranged. Bill shot Robert on the waterfront, but Harlan was not fooled, so he decided to shoot Robert again. Bill shot and killed Harlan to protect his pal. A grief-stricken Julia promptly ended her relationship with Bill.

On Founder's Day, the Cartel was apprehended. Taub was killed and Faison escaped yet again. After Robert and Anna's presumed death Bill started dating Robert's widow Holly Scorpio. Scott Baldwin came across information that pointed to Lucy Coe in a Port Charles art heist. He told Bill and Holly who concluded that Lucy had fed information about the local paintings to the wealthy Richard Halifax. When Halifax realized Bill and Holly were on his trail, he returned of all the art...except Bill Eckert's painting, "Summer in Provence." This was the only painting Lucy did not know about. Halifax professed his innocence but Bill knew he was lying! Then Bill goes to Paris where he reclaimed his artwork and had a fling on the side behind Holly's back, with his old flame, Victoria. When Bill returned to Port Charles, Holly walked in on Bill and Victoria making love at his lighthouse. The spurned Holly was hell-bent on making the womanizing Bill pay! She smashed all the rare wines in his wine cellar, then left town.

In 1993, Bill and his cousin Luke Spencer came face to face when Lucky Spencer was sent back to Port Charles as his parents were still on the run from notorious mobster Frank Smith. Frank's men found Lucky staying with his friend/cousin Sly Eckert. They also found Sly's father Bill Eckert, who was the spitting image of Luke.

Cesar Faison is a fictional character from the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. The role has been portrayed off and on by Anders Hove since 1990, and by Ian Buchanan since 2012 while Faison is disguised as Duke Lavery.

Anders Hove as Cesar Faison

Cesar Faison first surfaces in Paris, France in 1990, under the alias P.K. Sinclair, an adventure novelist with a penchant for cigars. In reality, Faison is the former employer of Anna Devane during her days with the World Security Bureau (WSB)'s rival agency, DVX. Also during this time, Faison often makes illicit deals with WSB head, Sean Donely, including one to destroy Anna's marriage to Robert Scorpio.

Faison arranges for Felicia Scorpio-Jones to be abducted, in an effort to distract her husband, Frisco Jones. Faison, with assistance from henchmen Desiree and Jacquess, leads Frisco and Sean on a wild goose chase through his Parisian winery before allowing them to rescue Felicia. Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Robin Scorpio finds part of a crystal that Faison had been searching for, prompting him to trick Scott Baldwin into selling him Wyndemere Manor. Upon learning that Robin's mother is Anna, whom Faison has long been obsessed with, Faison tosses aside Desiree in order to pursue Anna.

Faison's pursuit of the crystals soon becomes an afterthought as he becomes fixated on marrying Anna. She is reluctant to do so, until Faison threatens to expose her past to Robin. However, Anna is secretly conspiring with Sean, Frisco and Robert to bring Faison down, and they arrange for a man named Remundo to drive Faison away from Port Charles.

A short time later, Anna and Robert about to remarry when Faison resurfaces and is revealed to be a member of the mysterious Cartel. In an effort to keep Sean and Paul Hornsby in line, Faison poisones Tiffany Hill and Susan Hornsby, while hypnotizing Robert and Anna. Along with Mac Scorpio and Bill Eckert, Robert, Anna, Sean, and Paul join forces to bring the Cartel down, while Faison escapes. Faison responds by sending his enemies threatening messages and abducting Anna, attempting to fool everyone into believing she had left of her own free will.

Faison soon realizes that Anna will never be happy without Robin, and uses his mother, Sybil "Nanny" McTavish,[10] to infiltrate the security that Robert has placed around his daughter. However, Faison's efforts are foiled by Robert and Holly Sutton, and he ends up accidentally shooting his mother while she attempts to protect Robert and Holly. Fleeing the country with Robert and Anna in pursuit, Faison is believed to have died in an explosion off the coast of Venezuela.

In the summer of 1993, Faison appears on the ABC daytime soap opera Loving. Faison pursues Ava Rescott, who is in possession of a rare stamp that Faison covets. His ultimate pursuit ends at Universal Studios Florida where Ava is rescued by a mechanical King Kong.

In 1999, Faison resurfaces in Switzerland under the alias of Herr Krieg, a jewel thief that Luke Spencer has been in cahoots with for years. Though Luke is aware of Faison's existence due to his involvement in Robert and Anna's presumed deaths, he had never seen a photo of him. After joining forces with Helena Cassadine, Faison spends nearly a year tormenting the Spencer family, as well as Felicia, and Mac Scorpio, Robert's brother. After abducting Lucky Spencer on Helena's orders, Faison allows Lucky's parents to believe he had died in a fire. After a failed attempt to murder Luke and Felicia, Faison is presumed dead when Helena arranges for an explosion on his boat.

Faison resurfaces almost 12 years later alive, and is revealed to be the mastermind behind the abduction of Robin, as well as other heinous crimes earlier that year, including the presumed death of Jason Morgan. Faison has disguised himself as Anna's husband, Duke Lavery, in an effort to win her affection once more. It's also revealed that he also has Duke where he is holding Robin. Faison is unmasked by Robert, and taken into custody by Interpol. His accomplice, Dr. Liesl Obrecht, however, tries to kill Robin to cover for Faison, but ends putting Robert into a coma when he discovers his daughter alive. Dr. Obrecht later hands Robin over to Jerry Jacks, Faison's accomplice.

In spring 2013, Dr. Obrecht comes to Port Charles, and is revealed to be the mother of Dr. Britt Westbourne. Soon after, it's revealed that Faison is Britt's father. It's later revealed by Britt that her mother was in love with Faison to the point of obsession, but he never cared about her or Britt when she was growing up because of his obsession with Anna. After the Nurses' Ball, his younger counterpart Brad Cooper comes to General Hospital as lab manager replacing Robin. Not even Damian Spinelli could investigate about him.

In Fall 2013, Faison and Obrecht are tasked by Jerry to watch Robin, Nikolas, and Britt while a cure to his poisoning is developed. Faison ends up taking Duke, Obrecht, Luke, and Robin prisoner, but in the end is defeated by Anna and Robert. Anna decides enough is enough, and she and Robert presumably kill Faison once and for all.

Of course, it was later revealed in November 2014 that Faison had escaped death yet again. Anna and Robert had merely trapped him in a small dungeon hidden in Wyndemere, and he escaped nearly a year ago without either of them knowing. Faison is currently in cahoots with Helena, Jerry, Larry Ashton, and the fake Luke Spencer.

After seeing how happy he is, Lily decides to leave the boy with his adopted family.

Casey Rogers, (commonly referred to as "Casey the Alien"), is a fictional character on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. He was portrayed by Bradley Lockerman in 1990, who also played identical character Shep Casey upon Casey Rogers' departure.

Casting[edit]

Lockerman originally auditioned for the role of Jonathon Paget (a.k.a. Duke Lavery). Instead, General Hospital producers created the entirely new character Casey Rogers specifically for Lockerman, who took it as a blessing in disguise. Lockerman stated, "In real terms, it is kind of off the wall, I never in my life thought I'd have this kind of part, but I love it.[11]

Storylines[edit]

Casey Rogers, an alien from the planet Lumina,[12] arrives in Port Charles to be found and befriended by Robin Scorpio. He is searching for the missing part of a crystal that will send him back home.[13] The crystal is discovered to be on Spoon Island with enemy Cesar Faison, who is using the pseudonym P.K. Sinclair. Robin convinces Frisco Jones and her mother Anna Devane that Casey is an alien and together they recover the crystal and Casey is able to return home. That same night, Anna meets Casey's doppelganger Shep Casey, and the two have a brief fling before Shep leaves town.

Audience reception[edit]

The "Casey the Alien" storyline was met with very mixed reviews. It received criticism for its implausibility, but was able to keep some level of fan interest due to the popular actors involved in the storyline.[11]

Adela had gone to the hospital with injuries before, but this time, she was unconscious, her face was unrecognizable. An unscrupulous coward, Deke put the blame on her teenage son Michael Corinthos Jr., and sent Marcus Taggert, a new Brooklyn PD recruit whom he was training after him. This set the wheels in motion for years of misplaced animosity, pitting Taggert against Sonny. Later Sonny confided in Scully about what his stepfather, had done to Adela.

The next day, Scully decided to "take care of" Deke, making sure Sonny had an alibi. On Scully's orders, Vince had arranged for Officer Deke Woods to be in an alley beside a nightclub when he went off duty. The club was owned by a lady friend of Scully's, who was not in the mob, but was obviously connected. Scully told her to go out of town for a couple of days so that she would not be an accessory to what went down. And Scully knew that Sonny was at his friend Louie Cerullo's birthday party in Bensonhurst, so he would not be suspected of killing Deke.

Deke was in an alley in Bensonhurst investigating an anonymous tip from an informant about a string of burglaries. Scully put a gun to his head and took Deke's gun from the holster. Deke identified himself as a cop. Scully pressed the gun to the back of Deke's scull. Scully finally spoke, "I know who you are, and I know what you are." Joe then attached the silencer to his own gun. He stepped closer to Deke. "You're a pig, and I don't just mean a cop. You're a coward passing for a man." Deke was now nervous. Vince knocked Deke to his knees and Scully shot Deke in the forehead. Scully then fired one more shot into Deke's chest. When Sonny went to visit his mother in the hospital the following morning, she told him the news about Deke's murder in the line of duty. Sonny instinctively knew that was not true. He knew Scully had killed Deke Woods, to protect him and his mother.

Years later, Scully arrives in Port Charles at the grand opening of Luke and Sonny's blues club. Luke hired Mike Corbin, unaware that he is Sonny's biological father, as Maître d'. Katherine Bell, Lucy Coe's archrival had teamed up with Damian Smith to enact a revenge plot. Damian asked Scully to use his connections to sabotage Lucy's cosmetics company, Deception, by stealing Lucy's supplies and products from the warehouse. In February 1995, Luke's club was firebombed, and Sonny found out that Frank Smith's lawyer, Phil Cusack was trying to move in on Sonny's action. Sonny non-violently dealt with the goons who bombed Luke's, and Cusack was found dead. Sonny's friend and confidante, Harry Silver, informed him that Scully, who had been like a father to Sonny, had ordered the hit on Cusack. Lucy, now working with Luke and Sonny to scam Scully, acts as bait to get back at Damian and Scully. Mike and Luke pull off the heist, leaving Scully agitated. Mike and Luke continue with the scheme and Lucy get Kevin Collins to body slide. While waiting for Kevin to pick her up to take her away for the weekend, Lucy is kidnapped by Scully from the Outback parking lot. Luke and Sonny save her with help from Damian. Scully fires his gun, misses Sonny and the bullet hits Mike instead. Scully is about to shoot him again when Sonny shoots Scully, killing him.

Marcus Taggert is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. The character was portrayed by Reál Andrews from December 17, 1996 to April 1997 and from February 1998 to May 2003. Mathew St. Patrick portrayed him from April 1997 to November 1997.

As a youngster, Marcus met Deke Woods, Sonny Corinthos's stepfather and a police officer in Brooklyn. Deke became Marcus' mentor, inspiring the young man to become a police officer himself. Deke was killed by Joe Scully in an alley. Marcus decided to seek revenge. He moved to Port Charles and harassed Sonny every chance he got. His vendetta with Sonny got him into trouble on the job on more than one occasion. He gained a soft spot for Sonny's first wife Lily Rivera Corinthos. When she was killed in a car bombing meant for Sonny, he hated him even more.

In 1998, Taggert began dating Assistant District Attorney Dara Jensen after pursuing her for quite some time. Taggert could not shake the feeling something more was going on between Dara and Justus Ward than Dara let on.

Taggert and Justus had previously butted heads. Taggert had a prime opportunity to get Justus Ward out of his life for good when a tape came into his possession. On the tape was a confession from Justus, to the murder of Damian Smith, a crime he had committed in 1996, when he caught Damian trying to burn down Ward House, an orphanage founded by Justus' grandmother, Mary Mae Ward.

Taggert brought the tape to Dara's attention. Out of concern for Justus, she asked Taggert to compromise his principles and burn the tape. Because Taggert truly cared about Dara, he complied.

Within a year, Taggert and Dara's relationship came to an end—not because of Justus Ward, but because of Dara's devotion to her job. Taggert felt there was not enough room in Dara's life for both him and her job. When Taggert asked if Dara could devote any more time to making their relationship work, Dara made her choice. She had put as much as she could into their relationship. They parted ways.

Taggert soon took on a new role when he volunteered to look after Juan Santiago after his father, Armando agreed to allow Juan to remain in Port Charles.

In 2000, Taggert was surprised when his maternal half-sister, Gia Campbell, arrived in Port Charles, with Taggert furious to learn she had taken time off from school. Taggert and Gia had a strained relationship at best. Gia even hid her presence from him when she first arrived in town. Shortly thereafter, Taggert's mother, Florence Campbell, also came to Port Charles to be near her children.

Taggert and FBI agent Hannah Scott continued to grow closer and became lovers, despite Dara's warning the trouble she brought the FBI was trouble that followed Hannah everywhere. Taggert, however, continued to enjoy his newfound relationship, and continued to be annoyed by Hannah's friendship with A. J. Quartermaine. Hannah had made it clear to AJ she was involved with Taggert. They would never share more than just friendship. AJ clearly wanted more with Hannah. Hannah's friendship with AJ strained her relationship with Taggert, who reached his breaking point and ended things with her.

Soon the following year, Taggert was shocked to come upon a car accident involving Elizabeth Webber, Courtney Matthews and his sister Gia. Liz's life was threatened by the crash, and Gia was at fault, but Liz had no memory of it.

Taggert became suspicious about his sister's involvement in the car accident, and was certain Nikolas Cassadine was the true guilty party. Gia was an unwitting accomplice. Taggert placed an undercover officer, Sharifa, in Wyndemere to uncover proof of Nikolas's dealings.

At this time, Nikolas' grandmother, Helena Cassadine managed to escape from police custody. Helena took refuge in the tunnels of Wyndemere, where she overheard Nikolas and Gia discussing their cover-up of the automobile accident. Helena blackmailed Gia into helping her escape.

Taggert was shocked when Sharifa uncovered proof Gia was responsible for the accident, as well as helping the fugitive Helena evade the authorities. Taggert confronted Gia and Nikolas with the video evidence, but could not bring himself to arrest his little sister.

By 2003, Taggert was frustrated over the way Scott Baldwin was abusing his power as District Attorney to push his own agenda against Sonny. Taggert wanted to take Sonny down as much as Scott did, but could not agree with Scott's illegal methods. Scott, not wanting Taggert to get in his way, set Taggert up as a scapegoat in Scott's sudden campaign to do away with "dirty cops". Offering Taggert no other choice, Scott forced Taggert to take a job on the police force in Portland, Oregon.
