Social media is buzzing about whether or not Tyler Christopher is considering a move back to General hospital.
That’s because the actor took to Twitter Wednesday to thank his fans for their continued support. He also teased that one should never say never.
So in the infamous words uttered by Jim Carrey’s Dumb and Dumber character Lloyd Christmas to Lauren Holly’s Mary, so you’re telling us there’s a chance… And that chance would mean Nikolas could be resurrected from the dead yet again — making the dreams of thousands of Christopher’s fans around the country finally come true.
There is a definite hole in the fabric of Port Charles with the absence of Nikolas, and his return would certainly be welcomed by his family — at least most of them.
Chances are it would displease his never-before-known-until-he killed-him Uncle Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), who has already taken Nik’s house, his assets, and caused us to never see Spencer, who had to go into hiding at boarding school for his own safety.
Yet it would thrill sister Lulu (Emme Rylan), mom Laura (Genie Francis), and BFF Liz (Rebecca Herbst). It could also throw a monkey wrench in the budding relationship of Nik’s “widow” Hayden (Rebecca Budig) and her doctor/savior, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton).
But it would give him a chance to possibly pursue things with his most recent sorta squeeze, Ava Jerome (Maura West), who is in dire need of a love life again.
Rumors were swirling over the summer that the actor was this close to coming back to General Hospital in the fall, but contract negotiations fell through and poor Nikolas stayed most sincerely dead. Could the actor’s tweet mean that negotiations are back on? We can only hope so!
