General Hospital spoilers reveal some fans are worried that the current storyline taking Carly Spencer (Laura Wright) through a bit of a transformation will parlay into her transforming Kelly’s into something unrecognizable. Will the classic diner lose all of its hometown appeal and charm as Carly tries to breathe new life into it?
It’s not an unfounded concern, given that Carly’s professional expertise and experience in this industry have been in more upscale establishments. But fans don’t want another Metro Court to dine in. They want an unchanged BLT recipe and checkered curtains with that St Patty’s Day neon green sign.
General Hospital Spoilers — Preconceived Plans
Although this storyline seems like a nod to Jaclyn Zeman and a way for the show to write off the character of Bobbie Spencer (Jaclyn Zeman), Laura Wright put the kibosh on any such theories when she revealed that this plotline was developed long before Jackie’s death.
Conveniently, it’s going to work in Carly’s favor anyway if the show decides to mirror her untimely demise with Bobbie’s. Could Carly end up losing her mom just as Bobbie came through and saved her in the biggest way?
GH Spoilers – Warn Changing Kelly’s Could Spark Backlash
If Bobbie’s death is on the horizon, then we can probably expect even more rebuttals from fans if Carly spruces Kelly’s up just a bit too much. Longtime fans of the show want things to stay the same. That’s part of the appeal of soaps.
The cast becomes a family, and even when there are periods of disappointing writing or storylines that never end, our investment in the characters we’ve grown up and grown old with keeps us coming back for more. Part of that charm is due to places like Kelly’s, which feel like a place we would all know in our own hometowns.
General Hospital Spoilers — We Trust GH to Do Right By Bobbie Spencer
This dining establishment has a special place in the hearts of the Spencer family. Though not its original owner, Carly’s aunt, Ruby Anderson (Norma Connolly), took over in 1984.
From then on, it has been a beloved establishment, run by Bobbie for years without much demand for her time because the customer base has never wavered.
According to GH spoilers, Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was her go-to guy behind the counter for years before Cameron ‘Cam’ Webber (William Lipton) stepped up to the pie plate.
Now, the question is whether Carly will find someone as suitable as Mike or Cam to manage the place.
One thing is for sure; whoever takes on the role will be part of the Spencer family legacy, and the love will continue to churn out of this cherished dining spot.
