Hints of a Lulu Spencer Comeback on General Hospital
General Hospital (GH) fans are abuzz with excitement as rumors circulate about the possible return of Lulu Spencer to Port Charles. During the recent episode on July 28th, Dante Falconeri took Charlotte Cassadine, portrayed by Scarlett Fernandez, to visit Lulu, who remains in a coma.
Lulu Spencer’s Coma and the Explosive Incident at the Floating Rib
In December 2020, Lulu suffered severe injuries from an explosion at the Floating Rib, orchestrated by Cyrus Renault. As a result, she fell into a coma, and her condition was deemed indefinite. This left fans devastated as Lulu’s storyline was abruptly put on hold just when she and Dante were on the verge of reuniting. Additionally, Lulu’s then-boyfriend, Dustin Phillips, tragically passed away in the same explosion.
Speculations on Lulu Spencer’s Return
The recent scene featuring Charlotte and Dante’s visit has sparked speculations of Lulu’s potential return. Firstly, the decision to bring back Scarlett Fernandez, the original actress who played Charlotte, holds significant meaning. Charlotte’s character has undergone several recasts, with different actresses portraying her. However, bringing back the original Charlotte suggests a possible reconnection between Lulu and her daughter, offering an opportunity to reintroduce Lulu’s character into the storyline.
Moreover, Dante claimed to have moved on from his relationship with Lulu before she fell into a coma. Yet, his reaction upon seeing her again tells a different tale. Could this be a sign of hidden emotions resurfacing?
The Actress to Portray Lulu – Emme Rylan or a New Recast?
The question remains: who will take on the role of Lulu when she awakens from her coma? Emme Rylan, who previously portrayed Lulu, made it clear on her Instagram that she did not voluntarily leave the show but was let go. However, there is also the possibility of recasting the character with a new actress. Notably, Julie Marie Berman, a fan-favorite who portrayed Lulu from 2005 to 2013, captured three Daytime Emmys during her tenure.
The return of the original Charlotte hints at a strategy to ease the introduction of a new actress into the storyline, providing familiarity and support alongside Dante.
