General Hospital


Emma Samms Returning To General Hospital!



As had been predicted, and had been teased that another lady love from Luke’s past will be back on the scene for the final exit storyline for Anthony Geary (Luke) on General Hospital, today GH executive producer, Frank Valentini revealed via his Twitter account that it is indeed, Emma Samms (Holly).

Pictured with Samms, Valentini tweeted, .@EmmaSamms1 is coming back to @GeneralHospital !! Very excited!! #GH” Meanwhile Emma tweeted,  “Hooray! I don’t have to keep the secret anymore.”  And GH head writer, Ron Carlivati added, “Fire up the spaceship! #GH #HollyIsBack @EmmaSamms1

The character of Holly Sutton first appeared on on General Hospital back in 1982!  She returned for a year stint in 1992-1993, and then on and off again for several years in 2006, 2009, and most recently 2012 and 2013.

Just how will Holly figure into Luke’s final story?  Are you glad to hear that Emma is back? Will Nathan Parsons who plays Ethan Lovett be far behind? Comment below!

    I love Emma ! This send off for Luke is turning into something, that I have a feeling I am going to need a room full of boxes of tissues. I hope both of Luke’s sons are going to be there as well,darn forget the tissues, I will probably use a mop to wipe up the tears.

      Would that that were so! The writers seem incapable of writing really heartfelt scenes between the character and certainly no sustained, emotional scenes that we used to see and love.

        Agreed. Saw Anna today and she just took her clothes off and had sex on the couch. Not sure why except she and the guy were drunk. No attraction needed

        OMG : a desecration of all that is true… Duke and Anna

        say it isn’t true

        i feel like tearing up

        i’m 3 eps behind

        she really is off her rocker… what with the ghost of Carlos and the death of Duke on her mind… she really needs that rest and respite…

        OH no…
        this isn’t good

      You mean Pigpen.

      • harry

        What? Pigpen? I love Ethan! He’s not your perfect, cookie cutter soap opera male specimen, however, his off beat good looks, charm and natural personality make him just shine on the screen. Maybe he is an acquired taste.
        I don’t understand the Pigpen comment but Pigpen happens to be one of my favorite characters from the Peanut cartoon series. Pigpen clearly was a neglected child and needed a lot of love–so does Ethan.

    The two great loves of Luke’s life make perfect sense to aide him in his final adventure. Maybe we will finally get a real scene between Laura and Holly as they process Luke’s infidelity.

    • nancy dillingham

      June 1, 2015 at 4:03 pm

      I seriously doubt that–would have been nice–but they’ll probably bring the lagacy characters like Holly back for one brief scene with Luke. Oh, well, what might have been!

      • lellingw

        June 1, 2015 at 8:27 pm

        Holly was horrible with Luke, just awful. With Robert, she was fine. Robert and Hutch would be my choices to come back as well. Hutch got the short shift.

    Wonderful news, I love Emma Samms.

    I am so happy that Holly will be back. Too bad Robert won’t be there. I hope they correct the Ethan parentage mess…one of the worst s/,’s of all times. Either way, Holly should be there.

    • nancy dillingham

      June 3, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      Agreed. Hope it is revealed that Luke is not Nathan’s father. But . . . I’m not holding my breath.

    Wow!!! I did not know Emma Samms was once part of GH. But, I am familiar with a few of her movies….gorgeous!!!

    • su0000

      June 1, 2015 at 9:24 pm

      Hi CeeCee ..
      Both Holly and Laura are new characters, to me .
      And I am far from the only one that will see them as ”who?” and new..

      • CeeCee

        June 2, 2015 at 5:12 am

        Sam here, Su. I only know Genie from Y&R….Emma from a couple of movies. But, as yourself, their characters are new to me as well.

      • CeeCee

        June 2, 2015 at 5:42 am

        To add to what I wrote, SU. I do watch past episodes on UTUBE….I have a sleeping disorder….sometimes I stay up all night…, I have watched many, but not with Emma Samms, yet.
        I love the ‘oldies, but goodies’……I really enjoy past episodes so much more than the present. But, that’s probably just myself. I love ANYTHING from the past.
        I do agree with you, though, that only the older fans, and only a handful, such as myself, appreciate the return of vets……especially those I know. I wasn’t even born in 1982 yet, but it’s good to see all these past characters tie in comfortably with the present.

      • harry

        June 2, 2015 at 11:17 am

        Cee Cee and Su000, Holly was one of the best dressed, most beautiful soap characters in daytime history. That girl had style–she wore hats, suits and gloves just to lunch and shop with the ladies.
        She was truly just fun to watch.
        Now that my beloved and stylin Duke of Bloomingdale’s is gone, perhaps Holly Sutton can give all the women of Port Charles lessons on how to dress and accessorize. I swear, GH has some of the worst dressed females I have ever seen on television.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      June 2, 2015 at 7:34 am

      She did briefly appear in 2013 on GH……but for you ‘newbie viewers’ GH would be smart to show flashbacks of Holly to help you youngsters…lol…become more familiar with these vets when they return after lengthy times off the show……Luke should have been injured and falls into a coma showing highlights of his arrival in PC, his love life with Laura, Holly, ect., and other past to present storylines! Luke reliving his past while in a temporary coma would make great storytelling as part of his exit!!!

    • Timmm

      June 2, 2015 at 9:49 am

      In the 80’s Luke, Laura, Holly and Robert were just great! You can watch their work on Youtube. Its dated but you will get the gist of it. I always liked Holly with Robert but then Anna came along and now I prefer her with Robert. Luke and Holly could go off and live happily ever after because shes a lot like Luke where she likes adventure and she can play both sides of the law. She still looks great! Cannot wait for her arrival.

      • harry

        June 2, 2015 at 11:23 am

        Timm and Jimh are absolutely right. Look up Holly and Robert on Youtube. For me, Holly never quite jived with Luke, but she ignited some amazing chemistry with Robert Scorpio. I believe that after Luke and Laura, Holly and Robert were the next supercouple of the 80’s.
        By the way, Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms had a torrid affair while they were playing husband wife on GH. She left Tristan when she left GH for The Colby. Please know I am not blowing a long held secret. It was in all of the rags and Tristan spoke openly about it in interviews. It seems Emma broke Robert’s heart. This is a case of mimesis in reversal.

        Wow…sounds like you guys were really taken with Holly. I look forward to seeing on GH.
        Thanks, Timmm and jimh.

    • CeeCee

      June 2, 2015 at 5:04 pm

      Thanks, Harry. I can just picture Holly in my mind’s eye. Eloquent description of this fab lady.
      Her mode of dress and the way she carries herself makes me think of my mother…..sophisticated.

    • Shay

      June 4, 2015 at 3:05 am

      Amen to that, Harry! By the way, who the heck is responsible for putting the increasingly-naif-like Nina in those teeny-tiny sheaths of late? She looks like a praying mantis in a mini-dress!!!

    • CeeCee

      June 4, 2015 at 8:43 pm

      I must agree with you. Harry. With the exception of Days, none of the remaining soaps’ clothing style stirs the olfactory, for me. DOOL’s Lauren/Kate fashion sense, however, among other women on the soap, surpasses any sartorial aspiration any of the female cast on GH, and Y&R may have.
      Sharon Case is chic….but, did you take a gander at Eileen’s/Ashley’s dress the other day? She was wearing this golden dress…….well, she looked like a bronze statue embellished with fish scales.

    Good news indeed!

    And props to Ron Carlivati for the Dynasty II: Colbys reference: “Fire up the spaceship!”

  8. nancy dillingham

    June 1, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    Well, here we go again. TPTB trotting out legacy characters that they have already ruined and violated. Probably just for a scene or so. And, yes, I would like to see Nathan Parsons back–but only to reveal that he is NOT Luke’s son!
    BTW, where is Robert Scorpio in all this? Won’t be a real goodbye to Luke character without his old pal Robert and his fellow improv partner Tristan Rogers. Alas, the “goodbye” to Luke character will not have the impact it should have had because of the whole so-called Fluke debacle and complete violation of the character of Luke done in the 52nd anniv. show. I’m going to see it through just to see how badly they write the exit of TG. And, most especially, to see how they treat the scenes between Genie Francis/Laura and TG/Luke. Goodbye to what might have been! I’m expecting nothing much.

    • Rebecca1

      June 1, 2015 at 6:50 pm

      I know there are many that agree with you, Nancy, but I found Luke’s childhood trauma plausible and tied nicely in with what I knew of Luke…his inability to be domestic, his need to always be on the run, his conflict between loving Laura and his children but pushing away from them at times…and his “aggression’ “rape” of Laura.

      And I would be disappointed if they suddenly revealed Nathan…who I ‘d love to come back, wasn’t Luke’s. Luke and Nathan formed a very strong father/ son love…bond. I’d hate for Luke to suffer that loss….

      • Rodd

        June 2, 2015 at 5:09 am

        I agree with you, Rebecca1.

      • rebecca1

        June 2, 2015 at 10:38 am

        Thanks, Rodd. Good to hear from those with similar points of view!

      • harry

        June 2, 2015 at 11:27 am

        Rebecca, you know I agree with Nancy but see your point too. I am all talked out on what I thought was the Luke debacle and I am sure folks are tired of my belly aching about it.
        I am going to try and remain positive and hope they handle both Holly and Laura’s return well. I also harbor hope that Robert Scorpio will come back for a few cameos. I hope not to be disappointed yet again.
        Hope springs eternal and all that.

      • Ghlover

        June 2, 2015 at 3:30 pm

        I agree Rebecca. So many people complain, but realy Luke’s story was very authentic. I applaud Ron, Frank and Tony for their work.

      • rebecca1

        June 3, 2015 at 1:01 am

        Harry…I’m not sure Scorpio will be “allowed” back due to his other obligations…but it would be great on two levels…to usher off Luke but perhaps to help Anna through her grief over Duke and pts re Carlos.

      • rebecca1

        June 3, 2015 at 1:01 am

        Thanks, Ghlover…agree!

    • lellingw

      June 1, 2015 at 8:31 pm

      Tristan Rogers would be great but he is supposedly working on The Young and the Restless. Rick Moses as Hutch would be great. He never got his due. And yes, Leslie Charleston should always be around. She’s as iconic as Luke. Under appreciated and under used.

      • Timmm

        June 2, 2015 at 9:52 am

        Y&R should lone him to GH since Colin hasnt been on screen in weeks!

        I hear you, Su.
        As your neighbor, both my Grans are ‘soap Gurus’……especially, my maternal grandmother. She has a way about telling any story that compels one to listen. I think it’s that Scottish accent spoken almost sotto voce.
        I could actually see Ada, in her kitchen, dish towel slung over her shoulder, as she once again puts Rachel in her place….LOL (ANOTHER WORLD). I could listen to her forever.

        Between having a passel of kids and law-school, my mother hardly had time to breathe. So, no, she did not dedicate much time watching soaps.

    ”1982” that’s a long time back ..
    People were born went through college got a masters/phd and probably are your doctor LOL
    I do not know of her..
    I see the vet watchers are very excited, have fun enjoy her return..

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      June 1, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      Well, i have a neice who was born in ‘1982’……lets see if you’re right about people born then…..she got caught shoplifting, ended up in foster care, dropped out of school, and does internet porn……you were close but yet suuuuuu far……lol……p.s. you were watching in 2013……Holly was on then……too bad you werent around in 1982…….you missed great moments in GH history(check utube)……and you are right… so excited about Holly making a brief appearance i wet myself……thank God for depends…

      • CeeCee

        June 2, 2015 at 5:28 am

        Yeayyyy….Jimh is back….missed that great, in-your-face-humor…love-ya, jimh. So glad to hear from you….keep it up and I hope you feel 100%…later.

      su0000, if you have time, check out Emma’s film titled “Delirious” co-starring John Candy. The movie involves the soap world. You might like it. I think it was released in 1992.

      • Mollie

        June 1, 2015 at 10:25 pm

        Delirious is one of the funniest movies ever…definitely a sleeper hit! Emma was great and GODS do I miss John Candy!!

      • CeeCee

        June 2, 2015 at 5:24 am

        I agree. Watch DELIRIOUS; THE LADY AND THE HIGHWAYMAN; THE SHRIMP ON THE BARBIE……just to name a few. 4ever is right, you would enjoy them, su. She can play both ‘funny’ or ‘I think I shall swoon’-kind-of scenes.

    • Rebecca1

      June 1, 2015 at 7:07 pm

      Su…you bring up the same point about Laura and some of the other vets over and over again. We get it…you aren’t familiar with her. Younger viewers were either too young to watch or perhaps not born yet. So what. Who cares. Not the fans who DID watch back then. The vets…the legacy characters..go way back. Again…what’s your point? This is GH. The show that you love…that many of us loved way before you started watching. These characters still exist off screen…they’re still referred to and related to the families on the show. This is Lulu, Nicola and Lucky’s mom. Luke’s then love. Scott’s love. She needs no excuse to come back. She’s loved by many viewers. Period.

      Our GH included Laura…not every character has to be new or appeal to the demographic you keep dancing around.

      Soaps are based on continual stories, characters, families, friends, continuity. They don’t abruptly cut out half the town because they go too far back. The crux…part of the fun…is the fact that still exist and they DO, can come back…like a long lost relative….

      • Justin

        June 2, 2015 at 6:40 am

        Thank you Rebecca1. I do not know why this Su person has to make a point of complaining about how they don’t know Laura, Holly, or other vets. Geez, we get it. If Su only would realize, this show wouldn’t be on today without the veterans that she easily dismisses. GH was about to be canceled in 1978. Actors like Genie, Tony, Leslie, Jane, and Stuart are what helped save it.

      • Rose

        June 2, 2015 at 10:37 am

        Well said Rebecca. I also remember the Holly, Robert, Luke days seemed more fun and carefree compared to the dark, intense, sometimes very ugly stories they are doing now. And they still had their fare share of bad guys and fantastical along with adventures, love stories, and mysteries, sometimes filmed in great locations.

      • rebecca1

        June 2, 2015 at 10:52 am

        Thanks, Justin. As for Emma/Holly….(she was so beyond gorgeous back then. Loved her/) I agree with what you said and more…my thing is it doesn’t matter how far back a character goes unless that info is being stated for historical/factual reference…to bring the newer viewers up to date……the longer back the better because as I said that helps maintain the continuity from beginning to present. Each time a character from the past comes back…whether it’s the more recent Spinelli or Britt…or Laura, Bobby, Felicia, Lucy, Scott…and now only enhances the “realism” of the show. Just as in life people come and go within a community, a circle of friends, family, etc. Love seeing the original “regime!”

        I do agree with others though that these short stays are annoying and a tease. If you’re going to bring somone back bring them back! Not just for a few day ratings boost.

      • rebecca1

        June 2, 2015 at 11:24 am

        oh, thanks, Rose. just saw your post. yep. though I still love today’s GH those “old” ahem, lol…shows,,, really were great. I think there was more of a sense of “belonging.” Characters on the show had groups of friends…whether it was the teens who gathered at Ruby’s…the great dances at Wyndemere, the escapades and friendships between Anna, Robert, Tiffany, Sean…the real old days when Scottie’s relationship with Lee and Gail….Lucky and Luke…There was more of an emotional realism intermixed with fantastical stories and adventures. But everything changes…even when these characters return, they’ll never be the same. The writers aren’t and we’re not…so they’re seen and drawn with different eyes. But still… anticipated.

        June 2, 2015 at 11:52 am

        As a PS to my earlier comment, I also don’t want to live in the past. Vets were once newbie characters. Some took, some didn’t. We need both. Just want there to be continuity of storyline and character…past, present and future…and a little more fun and originality in Port Charles. And keep some Sonny and crime for su0000.

    • lellingw

      June 1, 2015 at 8:33 pm

      The episodes are on youtube and I recommend trying GH 1978-1981. GH was never better. 1982 was a really bad year for GH but 1983 was pretty great. Try them and you’ll get addicted.

      Hi rebecca1 🙂
      I myself just heard Holly was returning. no idea who she is..(so 1 time)
      and no, I have never noticed hearing it before, just from you lol thanks for noticing me 🙂

      I politely listen to rants about how much better GH was ‘back when Nixon was President .
      Always, how much better it was, if people only watched back then, how it was about families, how nobody can write a soap like they did in the 80’s, it was so much better in the 70-80-90’s and on and on about the good ol’ days.
      (said politely.. not grouchy ”sternly ” 🙂 lol
      A pleaser exchanging you, it is always fun.. the best posters are here! 🙂

      again; all I said was—-
      ”1982” that’s a long time back ..
      People were born went through college got a masters/phd and probably are your doctor LOL
      I do not know of her..
      I see the vet watchers are very excited, have fun enjoy her return..

      that was all I said ^^^ the truth sheesh nothing to get excited over 🙂

        Hi, Su…you’re right……nothing to lose sleep over…HaHa.
        I can understand what you are saying and what everyone else is saying, also.
        I enjoy your posts, so keep writing. Sparring with you is a pleasure. And, you are a true GH fan, in the present.
        I am used to listening to both my grandmothers discuss the good ole days and their favorite soaps….mostly ANOTHER WORLD, THE DOCTORS, OLTL, and AMC….Thing is, I love it…it has rubbed off on me.
        Just think, Su, girl….thirty years from now, we will be lamenting …..ahem, who? No one comes to mind… Who? Maura, for sure. Oh, yeah…Nathan’s abs? LOL.
        Seriously, though…..We will reminisce….except, there probably will not be any soaps to watch. What a depressing thought.

        My neighbor is a soap Guru ..
        She has been watching since day one, I’d bet..
        My grandparents/ mother, sister, aunts none have watched soaps, just me..
        G’ma would say why do you watch that tripe/nonsense.. .. LOL

      • rebecca1

        June 3, 2015 at 1:15 am

        Hey Su…

        I pointed Laura out more specifically because I believe you said the same thing about her return; lol…I think you’ve said the same thing for every vet that was before your time. And THAT…was my point when I “sternly” mentioned to you that you say it over and over again…

        These characters, like I and others have said, are part of the GH canvas. Past, present…they’re all inhabitants of that world. So, really, it doesn’t have to be mentioned that “since then people have gone to college, gotten their masters.”..etc…

        A different approach might be for you to say…”This character was on before I started watching. How does she relate to Luke? Should be interesting to watch…” (or not, for you.) But, see the difference?

        I enjoy your posts…you know I give you a thumbs up when a comment amuses me…so I think it only fair during our little group’s “intellectual debates” over the lives of our peeps in the soap hood to call out points that irk us as well!

        And I do agree…”shhhhhhhhh” on the soaps vanishing thing…

      • Harry

        June 4, 2015 at 9:46 am

        Su000, I was kidding when I said you have not been clear on the subject of Holly and Laura and whether you were watching back in the 80’s.

    When I heard “lady love from Luke’s past” I was kind of hoping for Skye. I love Emma Samms, but don’t love what they’ve done with Holly.

    I love Emma, she is a wonderful actress. I also loved her as Fallon Colby on Dynasty.

    • Harry

      June 2, 2015 at 1:23 pm

      Me too, Ricardo but wasn’t it odd that the American born Fallon suddenly had a British accent? I haven’t seen a British accent overtake someone’s speech that fast since Madonna suddenly spoke with a British accent.

      • CeeCee

        June 2, 2015 at 5:51 pm

        LOL, Harry. I remember that….Madonna and her affectation of a British accent, which lasted for a nanosecond.
        My grandmother has been in this country for sixty years….she still has a very tight and distinct Scottish accent.

      Haha, Harry! I remember that, too. Madonna…sorta like my NY friend who moved to California. Suddenly, she was valley girl personified! Made me cringe…

      I do love Luke’s nick names—English, Blaze, Spanky Buns and Angel.
      He also called Mac Scorpio “Bubu “which I didn’t appreciate because at the time Luke was having an affair with Mac’s wife, Felicia. That was possibly one of the worst couplings in daytime history.

    if genie francis comes back for one short stint to send off geary ill lose all respect for the actress,,,if this is the case she deserves to be treated the way they have treated her,,after her last big disappointing return i woild have thought she had had enough slap in the the powers at g,h…for daytime television for that matter..young and restless treated her no better,,frickin phelps,,,i just hope genie gets a contract and good story telling for the charater of laura,,,,fooled once by you g,h shame on you,,,fooled twice by you g,h shame on me….folled 3 times im done as most genie francis fans will be,,with her and general hospital..

    • Patrick

      June 1, 2015 at 10:20 pm

      I think .. we all.. will be getting our wish… in that… Genie Francis will be long term… and that it will be Holly.. who will leave with Luke

      and he will bequeath an empire… if you will… that Laura can continue on with the Spencer legacy

      seems appropriate

      LOL… i’d hate to spend my time… watching Emma Samms… holding up her false eyelashes

      • Fanny

        June 2, 2015 at 1:45 am

        I hope your right, where Genie Francis is concerned.

      • Timmm

        June 2, 2015 at 9:56 am

        I said the same thing Patrick, Luke leaves with Holly. They are better suited for each other.

      • Ghlover

        June 2, 2015 at 3:37 pm

        Hmmm i got to thinking….Laura and Sloan???

      • rebecca1

        June 3, 2015 at 1:25 am

        Timmm…I believe you may be right that Holly will be on for a short stay, although I’d personally love it if she were back on full time! But leaving with Luke…as in the two being a couple again, would seem strange to me. Holly may be a part of his exit but Luke is, and should be, still very in love with Tracy. I’d be surprised if he leaves her for another woman…or WITH another woman in a romantic sense.

      • Fanny

        June 3, 2015 at 3:21 pm

        I realize that Luke and Tracy have loved one another for a long time,
        We’ve all enjoyed their story, the high jinx, shenanigans, laughter, love,
        mutual respect, multiple “weddings”… He’s also injured her in ways
        that are not obviously seen, she’s still carrying the hurt inside… Does
        she believe this go around will be different? Or finally understand that
        loving him means letting go…

    I really liked the Holly character – but paired with Robert Scorpio. Too bad Robert is not part of Luke’s send off.

    As for Laura, I was initially excited to hear the character would be returning to GH but now am feeling quite ambivalent about it all. How many times have we been let down over the years regarding a Luke and Laura storyline? Not sure if I am going along for the ride….

    • Lellingw

      June 2, 2015 at 7:25 am

      I understand and I will bail if I have to endure that. The old episodes are too great to be muddied with crap. So far I see stupid stuff like Luke getting a tattoo and explaining it in a flat tone of voice.

      • nancy dillingham

        June 3, 2015 at 2:51 pm

        Yes, stupid stuff; now his is wanting an engagement party! Say what???????????

      • lellingw

        June 3, 2015 at 3:13 pm

        On The Haunted Star no less where Laura disappeared for two years and was held hostage in a very abusive way. Luke didn’t only not have search for her body but didn’t bother to have a memorial service for her if he thought she was dead. Tracy has never been a very nice person herself. What’s up with the lousy music on the modern show? They don’t bother to hire someone to write music?

    • Timmm

      My expectations are very low. I’ve accepted that L&L was a young romance that sputtered as do real life romances at times. Lets move on. Godspeed Anthony.

      • Les

        June 2, 2015 at 5:16 pm

        I am not sure L&L could adequately be described as a”young romance that sputtered as do real life romances at times,” so forgive me if I expect more than an “old sweatshirt” of an ending. As for moving on, I am happy to do so and wish Mr. Geary well.

    • CeeCee

      June 3, 2015 at 6:51 pm

      Hi, Les.
      I am no expert on Luke and Laura, but I don’t think the writers’ intention is to give these two a storyline, since Luke is leaving. I believe Laura is staying? Her presence is one of many to rally around Luke/Tony as he exits the GH stage.
      Then again, who can really guess!!

    I remember when I was little-watching Emma Samms and thinking how beautiful she was back in the 80’s-I still think that. I loved Holly and Robert. I always look forward to her returns. On another note, does anyone else find nuLulu incredibly annoying? I hope that Luke takes nuLulu with him when he (sadly) leaves Port Charles. Does she work? Does Kiki work? Does Morgan? Good grief-these “kids.”

    • Ghlover

      June 2, 2015 at 3:38 pm

      The fact that we still refer to new Lulu as NEW Lulu says it all….. Gh should take the opportunity tonsend Lulu packing as well, at least the timw for a quick sawo back to Original Lulu

    • su0000

      June 2, 2015 at 4:37 pm

      dmr, hi
      Kiki, Morgan, Lulu kids LOL
      Didn’t Sonny give Morgan a restaurant? Perhaps Kiki is the cook .. aaaha!
      What was Holly’s job/career??

    • Charday

      June 2, 2015 at 5:07 pm

      Yes, nuLulu very annoying. I hope Dante has an affair with Valerie Spencer (played by Brytni Sarpy—love her she spells her first name)!

      • su0000

        June 2, 2015 at 11:05 pm

        ohh no..
        …. both.. Lulu and Valerie are bad, real bad,,
        Lulu is still a good length behind Val she is the worst of the two..
        Poor Dante he could do much much better than either of them, but he will be stuck with one of them..

    Sadly, I have heard that the story of Luke is over. TG has made it clear that he is retiring and he would like to see Luke go out with a bang….

    So for those of us that know and love the era…. enjoy the farewell and thank you TG for great story!

    • nancy dillingham

      June 3, 2015 at 2:54 pm

      I’m not banking on his going out with a “bang”; I think it will be more like a “whimper” after all the crazy stuff that went down with the “Fluke” character. Alas, too bad to see such an ignominious end to a career.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
