  2. Jerome...haven't heard that name in a long time. They were a crime family before the Corinthos's showed up. Julian Jerome is Bobbie's gay son Lucas' father. Should be interesting

  4. I'm so excited for this! When ATWT really hit the skids, it was West who kept me watching. She's one of those rare actors who can really elevate material, a la Erika Slezak. She'll be a huge asset to GH.
