Character arrivals and departures are a common occurrence on General Hospital. However, occasionally they surprise you by coming back. The original plan was for Bonnie Burroughs (Gladys Corbin) to visit for a few days at most, but things didn’t work out that way. But in the episode on October 5, 2023, she bid farewell.
This is where things become intriguing, though: unlike many soap opera characters, Gladys’ story didn’t end dramatically. Her terrible death did not write her off, opening the door to countless opportunities. Fans of General Hospital are wondering if she would return at some point because she was spared from death. It resembles a mystery that has to be unlocked. What’s the scoop, then? Would Gladys come back?
Will Gladys Make A Comeback? Bonnie Burroughs Weighs In
When Bonnie Burroughs took on the role of Gladys Corbin on General Hospital, she didn’t expect the character’s journey to extend beyond a few days. Nevertheless, Gladys’s existence in Port Charles turned into a multi-year rollercoaster. She made her exit in the October 5, 2023, episode. But the question on fans’ minds is whether Gladys could stage a return in the future. After all, she wasn’t killed off.
In a recent interview with Soap Opera Digest, Bonnie Burroughs teased the possibility of Gladys sneaking back into Port Charles at some point. She shared a humorous exchange with her co-star Cynthia Watros (Nina), who commented, “At least you’re not getting decapitated!” Gladys may not be meeting a cruel end, which leaves the door open for her return. General Hospital is known for its wild storylines, and as Burroughs noted, “anything can happen.”
Burroughs also showed her admiration for the clumsy Gladys, a chronic liar who was never able to get her act together. She did a fantastic job portraying Gladys, particularly in the darker parts of the role. The actress gave an explanation of how wanting to play a role similar to Gladys on General Hospital came from her own experience as a “good-girl Girl Scout.”
Although Gladys Corbin’s future is still unknown, Bonnie Burroughs would be delighted to take over the job. Fans of General Hospital will still have to wait to see if Gladys makes a comeback to Port Charles. Do you think she will eventually come back? Post your ideas in the comments area.
