Chase on GENERAL HOSPITAL — Everything You Need to Know


Port Charles got a new top cop when Josh Swickard made his debut as Detective Harrison Chase on GENERAL HOSPITAL in February of 2018. He started off as Dante’s new partner at the PCPD but has cemented his place in Port Charles and even expanded his family!

Following the tragic death of Nathan West, police commissioner Jordan Ashford brought Detective Chase to partner with Dante Falconeri at the PCPD, and the two cops immediately rubbed each other the wrong way.  Chase agreed to join Dante and the other cops on stage performing at the Nurses Ball benefit, but it was just a trick to strand him on stage by himself. But Chase performed solo and Dante eventually came to respect the guy. It also turned out that Chase is Dr. Hamilton Finn’s half brother, although the two siblings didn’t get along at all. Eventually, however, Chase was able to get Finn to let down some of his defenses and work on repairing their relationship.

Things got complicated when it turned out he was an ex-boyfriend of Nelle Benson and he agreed to help Michael set her up in a sting to confess to her multiple crimes. Unfortunately, their plan resulted in a car crash that gave Nelle the opportunity to give birth and swap her baby with Brad’s dead child, leaving everyone else in the dark. Chase felt terrible, but he and Michael have continued to have a strong friendship.

Chase grew smitten with schoolteacher Willow Tait, and they started a relationship that soon became serious. She confided to him that she had escaped the Dawn of Day, and the cop stood up to protect her from the cult and its leader, Shiloh. And when the opportunity arose to issue an arrest warrant, Chase was more than happy to announce the news to Shiloh face-to-face. 

With all the crime in Port Charles, Chase should be kept pretty busy, so stay tuned to see how his story continues. And for more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
