Bradford Anderson is reprising his role as Damien Spinelli on General Hospital this week and fans are excited to have him back. Although his return is expected to be just temporary, it looks like it will be well worth the short visit. What brings this fan-favorite back to Port Charles? According to the daytime drama, brawn just isn’t enough, so the brains is brought in to help solve a mystery.
General Hospital had posted a preview clip on Monday revealing tidbits of why Spinelli is back in town, and it has to do with his BFF, Jason Morgan. The two men have been friends for years and have worked together in the past to bring the bad guys down. Now Jason is expected to beckon the computer nerd to help him out once again.
This week on General Hospital will have the dynamic duo reconnecting. Spin will be helping Jason locate the person who he thinks sent that magic set to Jake. While rumors were swirling that Helena Cassadine may still be alive, that doesn’t seem to be the case. However, there is someone else who is out there causing his family trouble.
In the preview clip, Jason is seen struggling with Costa, Helena’s henchman. It is looking like he is the one who has set Helena’s plan in motion since she is supposedly not around to do it. Spinelli is called in to help Jason find him. His computer skills are extraordinary, despite the fact that it borders on being illegal.

Jason wants to put this whole Chimera project behind him. According to General Hospital spoilers by SheKnows Soaps, he will find the truth that he is seeking this week. Unfortunately, Sam wants him to stop what he is doing right now. Previews reveal that she begs her husband to leave it alone. She is having some bad vibes in the form of visions and they disturb her enough to confront him about it. However, he won’t listen and will continue to search for answers with the help of Spinelli.
Everyone in Port Charles will be happy to have this guy back. The last time this character was seen was in January for Nathan and Maxie’s wedding. However, he had a different face. Actor Blake Berris swooped in to replace Bradford Anderson in his longtime role because of scheduling conflicts. Now that the original actor is returning, it will seem like old times.
Anderson is on a recurring status on the ABC soap. When the time is right, he returns for a short stint for a particular storyline. He could be invited back once Kirsten Storms returns to her role as Maxie as well. She has been on a medical leave, but she is back filming on set and it can’t be soon enough to see her on screen again. Spinelli and his Maximista share a special history, and they also have a daughter that is not seen often enough. It is always fun to see those two on screen together.
On a side note: General Hospital is being preempted by news coverage on Tuesday, so Bradford Anderson’s return will have to wait an extra day. Look for him on Wednesday’s episode. Are you happy to see Bradford Anderson back on General Hospital?
