Tristan Rogers checks back into 'General Hospital'

Another soap veteran is returning to “General Hospital.” Fan favorite Tristan Rogers is returning to Port Charles as Robert Scorpio this November.

Soaps In Depth tweeted the good news this morning that Rogers would be back beginning on Thursday, Nov. 16. It seems like a pretty crucial time for Robert to return to the canvas, considering Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) has risen from the dead and is holding his daughter Robin (Kimberly McCullough) hostage. It’ll be interesting to see how Anna (Finola Hughes) reacts to another one of her men coming back into town.

Then there’s that little (huge) lie Luke (Anthony Geary) told his best friend before he left town. Luke let Robert believe that Ethan was his son and Robert took off after Ethan to keep him out of trouble. Could Robert have figured out the truth? We can’t imagine he’s too happy with Luke if he has and what will Anna think? For that matter, what will Robert say when he finds out just how close Luke and Anna have gotten in his absence?

“General Hospital” airs weekdays at 2:00 p.m. EST on ABC.
