Can Noah and Bobbie rekindle? (ABC)

Now that Dr. Noah Drake (Rick Springfield) has fallen off the (vodka) wagon while flirting with the partying lifestyle of rocker Eli Love, will General Hospital pursue a public service storyline about the hazards of drinking after a liver transplant? Nope. The current TV Guide says that an ABC rep confirms that any such story has been “shelved”.

It could be because Rick Springfield’s much anticipated Working Class Tour takes him and his band to Australia through September 5 and then coming back to the good old U.S.A. through February. (You can see the cities and dates of his tour at Daytime GHs Rick Springfield to Perform!.)
