The Daytime Emmy winner teased on Twitter that she may soon be home in Port Charles.

When a fan of General Hospital and Maurice Benard (Sonny) took to Twitter to ensure that Vanessa Marcil knew that she loved him but never much cared for Brenda — in fact, “I was glad to see her go,” the poster noted — the actress’ response was short, sweet… and hopefully telling!

“I’ve got some bad news for ya,” Marcil replied, adding a blushing emoji. The implication, obviously, was that she would soon be reprising the role that she’s played off and on since 1992 — the role in which everyone loves her except, apparently, for this viewer.

Chiming in, Benard came to his longtime leading lady’s defense. “Why wouldn’t you like Vanessa?” he tweeted before adding, tongue in cheek, “Of course [she] can’t compare to me, but she’s pretty good, and she’s kind of nice, too.”

Immediately, GH-ers — well, except for the one who said she was “never a fan of Brenda” — went wild. “Brenda needs to come home and get her son, Alec, back in line,” suggested one. “That’s got to be Dev!” (You have to admit — see photo below — there’s more than a passing resemblance between Marcil and Ashton Arbab, who plays Brando’s “son.”)
