This week on General Hospital
Jax (Ingo Rademacher
) experiences more than fond memories of Brenda, a role originated by Vanessa Marcil
. Just as Jax seems content to find happiness with Chloe, he spots someone who looks a lot like Brenda in the villa garden. This brief glimpse leads Jax to believe that his beloved Brenda may still be alive.
It's been almost two years since Jax watched in horror as Brenda's mentally unstable mother made Brenda swerve the car off that cliff. Could the shadowy figure Jax sees around every corner be a prelude to Marcil (who most recently played Gina on Beverly Hills 90210) returning to daytime?
Fans have clamored for Marcil's return to the breakout role that rocketed her to stardom. The fact that Brenda's body was never found has always left the doors open for her return, and the timing couldn't be more perfect. Marcil could be reunited with Maurice Benard (Sonny), a romantic link that would create some major complications for Carly (Sarah Brown), who has her own rocky relationship with the intense mobster. If Marcil does return, it could help Benard, whose contract is up in November, decide whether or not to stay with the show.
