|OT - Stone coming back to GH!

So this has nothing to do with Spinelli, but it looks like Stone is coming back for a couple of episodes to help out Robin.|
Exclusive: Michael Sutton Goes Back to General Hospital
Here's an unexpected blast from the past! Michael Sutton, whose General Hospital character, Stone Cates, died of AIDS in a landmark 1995 storyline, will return to the ABC soap on September 28 for a two-episode appearance. Stone won't be coming back as a ghost or spirit. Rather, he'll appear to his one-time girlfriend Robin (Kimberly McCullough) when she finds herself in a physically perilous situation and becomes delirious. (ABC has asked us not to reveal the exact circumstances).
The visitation occurs at an emotionally vulnerable time for Robin — she and hubby Patrick (Jason Thompson) have split up due to his liaison with Lisa (Brianna Brown). A GH rep tells TV Guide Magazine that "Stone will give Robin the will to live, not only for herself but, more importantly, her daughter Emma." The rep adds that the duo will also talk about their past together, and bring closure to what happened to them years ago. (As a result of her sexual relationship with Stone, Robin is HIV-positive). Sutton, who was Emmy-nominated for his final year on GH, hasn't done much acting since his exit from the soap. These days, he's a highly successful L.A. nightclub promoter and restaurateur.
Sounds kind of familiar doesn't it? Dead loved one comes back to give someone on the brink of death hope to live. Let's just hope that Stone coming back actually turns out to be more than a plot point to nowhere like Georgie's retrun to help Maxie decide to live.
I might have to watch for a couple of days.
So I'm guessing this happens after she doesn't get her medication because of Lisa?
LOL, I actually said "STONE?!?" out loud. Woooow, it's going to be mind-boggling to see Stone on screen, if even for 2 days. I mean, Chad and Lindze came back very briefly, but it's been 15 years since we've seen Michael Sutton!
Wow. This actually scares me because I don't want GH to mess up another good memory from past days of GH, you know? I like that he's going to encourage her to live for her daughter because, well, Robin's love for her daughter hasn't been talked about a lot... she wanted a baby, had a baby, go post-partum and stuck baby in a tree and .... well, you know. LOL.
But seriously, this BETTER be BETTER than Georgie's return to encourage Maxie to live or whatever. Maxie's behavior since that point makes me think Georgie should come back down and smack Maxie or at least Georgie should be sitting on a cloud somewhere and be thinking, WHY did I have to die again?
Sounds more and more like Kim is going to leave GH at some point in time to pursue other areas of the industry, else why bring up the Stone stuff 15 years after the fact so many times lately???
IDK...sounds like character closure to me for Robin.
I do hope Stone's return is more effective than Georgie's has been so far for Maxie. Maybe Georgie should come back and smack Guza in the head so that he will let Maxie find her brain again.
