In a clip shared with TVLine, viewers can tell that Lois’ return catches her daughter, Brook Lynn, played by Amanda Setton, and her ex-mother-in-law Tracy (Jane Elliott) by surprise. After all, they haven’t seen her in decades.

Following a number of insults being hurled at her, Lois explains why she left Bensonhurst to begin with. After hearing what she had to say, Brook Lynn informs her that her evil grandmother, Tracy, was the entire reason any of it happened.

Lois’ return to General Hospital coincides with her ex-husband Ned dealing with amnesia. Ned is actually played by Rena Sofer’s real-life ex-husband Wally Kurth.

His memory loss has Ned thinking that he is his 90s rockstar alter ego, Eddie Maine. Long-time GH viewers will know that Lois initially fell in love with Eddie, not Ned. At the time, she wasn’t aware of his real identity. They got married in 1995, but their first marriage was short-lived after Lois discovered Ned was already married to Mary Beth Evans’ Katherine Bell.

Ned eventually won Lois back and the couple wed once again, only to be divorced a second time. After they split, Lois left town to give birth to their daughter, Brook Lynn.

While Lois’ character resurfaced on General Hospital again in 2005, she was played by Lesli Kay. So, this is a true return of Lois Cerullo to Port Charles.

How Long Will Lois Be Back On The Show?

Right now, it isn’t clear how long Rena Sofer will be back in Port Charles. A source revealed to TVLine that she will return for a “nice run” though. So it’s safe to say that viewers will be able to see her on more than one episode.
