Pack Your General Hospital Bags: Should Jennifer Smith Move To PC?

Jennifer Smith on General HospitalJennifer Smith on General Hospital

Jennifer Smith has been through multiple personalities on General Hospital. She started off as a sweet, innocent, cosseted mafia princess unaware of what her daddy, Frank Smith, did for a living…or that he was forcing Luke Spencer to marry her…by threatening Laura Webber Baldwin’s life.

Jennifer Smith’s General Hospital Return

Later, she was a boozy slattern played by Roseanne Barr, hanging out in Vegas with a husband played by Barr’s then-husband, Tom Arnold. (Genie Francis and Anthony Geary also appeared in character on Roseanne, talking about the “evil weather machine.)

The same personality popped up again almost a decade later, this time played by Sally Struthers. Finally, in 2015, ex-Days of our Lives actress Holly Gagnier played a Jennifer who only wanted to sleep with Luke. For “closure.”

Now, Gagnier’s Jennifer is back, wearing widow’s weeds and seemingly in her daddy’s family business for good. Should she stick around Port Charles for a while? What the fans had to say about that possibility:

Unwanted, Unneeded

Nope, 75% of the audience dismisses out of hand. We’re full on mobsters at the moment, thank you very much. Besides, Jennifer might remind longtime viewers that we once cheered for Luke and Laura to get rid of the criminal element…not prop them up as the heroes.

Little General Hospital Woman

Jennifer should only return with her boss in tow, 13% of fans advise. What we’re interested in is who’s pulling Jennifer’s strings. Since she is obviously not up to being the Big Bad.

The More the Merrier

A slightly smaller 12% believes that Port Charles needs even more mobsters, to really get that Godfather feel. We all know Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) will triumph in the end, but there needs to be some tension in who will win the silver medal. Right now, it’s Ms. Wu’s (Lydia Look) to lose, and we’d like a little more unpredictabilty.
