Wvith the news out in the soap world that Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has ousted Greg Vaughan as Eric Brady, speculation is everywhere that he may return to General Hospital and bring back Lucky Spencer.
The story would fit perfectly at the moment and Vaughan could seamlessly move back into the role he played from 2003-2009.
When Jonathan Jackson had the role this past summer it was clear he was still in love with Elizabeth, but after Nikolas made it clear she loved Jake and that Jake was actually Jason, he decided to make a clean break and leave town again. His mother supposedly joined him, but Laura has since decided to make Port Charles home again? Why not have Lucky follow? Jackson isn’t available to work on General Hospital due to his role on primetime’s Nashville, but other actors have played the role (including The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacob Young).
Vaughan had quite the fan following when he played Lucky in the past and made the role his own and he and Herbst had a chemistry and fan following. It doesn’t look like Liz is going to get her happy ending with Jason and the character needs redemption somehow. Why not give her redemption with the ONLY man who’s been able to redeem her in the past? After all, he was the one who found that scheming little girl crying in the park after a brutal rape and helped her turn her life around.
