Original post, February 11:
If you recall, Daytime Emmy-award winner Chad Brannon played the ex-drug dealer and mob goon, Alexander (Zander) Smith on ABC’s General Hospital from September 2000 to March of 2004. He died in Emily Quartermaine’s (Natalia Livingston) arms after being shot in the chest. He returned in 2009 for a brief time as Aaron, and unfortunately, Soaps Spoilers isn’t positive who he’ll be returning as this time around.

Soaps being soaps, this means we’re never 100% positive that characters who are killed off in front of our eyes are ever truly dead. General Hospital is keeping quiet about who Brannon returning as, so we can only speculate who he’ll portray. Will Zander return from the dead, or will he return as the ghost of Zander? Does this have anything to do with Sonny’s  (Maurice Benard) storyline? Perhaps he’ll reprise that role of Aaron or someone else? There’s always room for a twin brother. It’s not as though GH hasn’t gone down that road before, most recently with Jon Lindstrom portraying Dr. Kevin Collins and his evil twin brother Ryan Chamberlain.

For those who can’t recall, he’s the father of Cameron Webber (William Lipton), with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst). Possibly his return will bring Cameron and Liz a new storyline. Viewers have been complaining that there hasn’t been one for them in a while.

According to EW, Brannon begins taping February 12 for a return in March.
