UPDATE: James DePaiva Mysterious Role Now Set to Air On This Day

James DePaiva, in his mysterious GH role.

Don’t worry, General Hospital and James DePaiva fans–it’s this week!

Breathe In and Out For Me

This is a big deal for OLTL and DePaiva fans. One of our favorite handsome, dashing, sweep-me-off-my-feet Llanview hunks is back on our screens! This time he’s wearing a white coat. And we’ll first see him Wednesday, July 5th, according to a the show’s teaser for next week. See that video below.

New episodes of the ABC sudser will be preempted Monday the 3rd and Tuesday the 4th for reruns.

We’ll know the full story, so to speak, about who DePaiva is playing on Wednesday then.

In a teaser video posted to General Hospital‘s official Facebook page, DePaiva was seen only for a split second. It’s amazing how all that charm rushed back at us from his Llanview heyday in that one moment! See a DePaiva in a preview video for next week’s episodes, also from GH‘s official Facebook page..

Tears and Tantalizing Tidbits

In the new video, Kelly Monaco as Sam continued her moving, even disturbing, job of portraying a woman tortured by hallucinations, fearing for her husband’s safety–and fearing she’s losing her mind.

Also: GH Co-Head Writer Jean Passanante recently announced her retirement.

On an examining table, a tearful Sam sat in front of DePaiva in his lab coat, glasses perched on the bridge of his nose.

“You OK?” he asked. We almost fan-girl-ed out when we heard his voice, and you will too, dear Soap Cities readers.

But Is There More

But who is this doctor? Could it be GH classic and legacy character Jeff Webber? A brand new face at GH? Is the role short-lived, as Jennifer Bassey’s (Quinn) seems it may be, or long-term?

Don’t Miss: Jennifer Bassey plays a glamorous book agent in Port Charles.
