BREAKING NEWS: Emma Samms returns to General Hospital!

Hot on the heels of the recent announcements of the big returns of Tristan Rogers and Finola Hughes as Robert and Anna Scorpio to General Hospital, now comes word they will be followed into Port Charles later in February by none other than Holly Sutton Scorpio, played by the beguiling Emma Samms!

TV Line once again broke this GH scoop citing this info: “While Tristan Rogers and Finola Hughes are both returning to GH as part of Kimberly McCullough’s (Robin) exit storyline, Samms will resurface in late February for the purpose of helping Luke and the Spencer clan — including her own son Ethan — deal with the always-scheming, always-present Helena Cassadine.”

Looks like there may be plenty to take a look at and bring some much needed eyeballs  back to the lone ABC soap, with the arrival of the old fab guard of the 80’s and the news of the move of the Mannings and John McBain from Llanview to Port Charles.

Who knows who else might appear from who knows where? What do you think of Emma coming back to her old stomping grounds for another dose of drama? Let us know!

They say that they are going to cut costs to make GH profitable but all they’re doing is increasing costs by increasing the cast of GH (which is already big as it is).

Umm no. That is just wrong. Plain wrong. Besides they stuck Holly with a rapist once, two would be a bit much. Robert and Holly Scorpio were made for each other. They belong together.

GH – Luke raped Laura
OLTL – Todd raped Marty.

I dont think they are going to make heros out of rapists any more ,its just wrong ,even though I forgave luke and todd.Only because they are characters in a story.if this was the real world, i say ,lock them up and throw away the key,and never ,ever, let them out.

lol, i agree w/ ou for th most part, but i’m curious about the cassadine castle storyline now that its finally airing, they teased us so long that Garin Wolf lost any hope and his position as head writer (for taking an eternity to deliver) I hope at least the storyline plays out.

GH cannot but improve with the return of these veterans and the additions from OLTL. Its ratings should improve to at least that of OLTL. Ratings for the week of December 26-30, 2011 (Compared to Last Week/Compared to Last Year):
Total Viewers
1. Y&R 5,085,000 (+158,000/-201,000)
2. B&B 3,416,000 (+64,000/+138,000)

Does this bother anyone else that we are bringing back oldies which don’t get me wrong I enjoy, but this looks like a sinking ship. Maybe I am wrong. I liked Emma Samms but only with Robert.

don’t be negative yet, let be positive, if we all want GH to stay on the air lets watch and stay hopeful .

Yes, I did prefer Robert with Holly. But Emma Samms left and never came back and it was fitting for Robert to be with Anna, being Robins mother, PLUS they did have good SB arg chemistry/ like the husband wife ole show, Hart to Hart. Robert and Holly was just like a Prince and Princess together.

I always thought Robert & Holly were very Thin Man, personally. Perfectly matched, totally in love, and made marriage fun and interesting. Plus, they really knew how to bring the sexy and romance!

I’m more excited to hear she will be coming back than I am about all the OLTL characters coming aboard (there’s even a rumor that 2 more will be announced soon). Instead of all the OLTL actors I would have rather seen the return of Jaxs, Nikolas, Lucky, and Robin staying put. Are the new writers really so lazy they have to import characters they know instead of writing for the wonderful actors that are already on GH?

Exactly.
Especially Howarth, who walked away from the role more times than people can count, and everyone is on the unemployement line, including (Victor) Trevor St. John, EXCEPT Roger Howarth (Todd).

im not crazy about brenda,there were times I like her and times I didnt ,the last time she came back was waisted,and her coming back did nothing to boost the ratings.I think the brenda,sonny, story died a long time ago ,I do like sonny with carly.and I agree with you liz has become very boring ,thats why general hospital needs a big change and new writers, I hope ron and frank can save our characters that have been ignored by the last writers ,I would like to see brenda come back but forget about her and sonny.Im starting to like… Read more »

I love Emma Samms. If they can find room to bring all these people back, ALONG with OLTL players, and couldn’t fnd room to bring back Laura, I am sure it must be a cool slap in the face to Genie Frances….

I agree.I wonder why general hospital never brought her back to stay,she was always one of my favorites ,there are so many times she was free to go back and they never asked ,all the interesting people in port charles were either killed or put on the back burner ,way back .and the show continued to have stories surround the mob and thats why alot of fans just said bye, bye .I dont know how many times I ve said that im done, but always stayed tune.laura didnt have to be with luke .there were all different directions they could… Read more »

It’s not so much of the mob stuff, in moderation it would be fine since this is Sonny’s and Jason’s life, but in moderation while other stories continue to be told. This hasn’t quite happened and is the result of fan upset. And the bodged/horrible story with Brenda when Maurice and Venessa had such a beautfiul love story they could of told and played out in the 1 year she was on. Sonny and Brenda was GH best love story, BESIDES Luke and Laura, and Sonny and Brenda ended up being GH’s worst story (the Becan) or whoever that guy… Read more »

your right about the mob stuff,we just dont want to see or hear it 5 hours every week,and they did waste 1 year with brenda and sonny,however ,brenda was never a favorite of mine since she left years ago.I dont want to see this happen again,but I always liked sonny and carly,kate is getting interesting ,wonder what her problem is ,dont like her with sonny either.I really dont know who should be with him,at this time I cant come up with anyone,he gets on my nerves and he pisses me off every time I see him which is quite alot,and… Read more »

You dont know who could be with Sonny, I can. LOL But yes? , he has been over used and doesn’t allow the audience to miss him when he gone a fews days. The over kill has robbed him of some of the sex appeal he had. Why don’t you like Brenda? Are you saying you haven’t like Brenda since she left last time, OR you have never liked Brenda? I wasn’t happy with her protrayal this time, but I adore Venesa Marcil as Brenda. I just opened a email post from you in my inbox you asking me why… Read more »

To answer one question is they have sit down with Kimberly to convince her to stay and she still does not want to this is why I am concerned this is their swan song I think ABC has given up on soaps I hope I am wrong. Katie Couric Not!!!!

I’m excited about seeing Emma return to GH. I’m crossing my fingers that this time the writers actually fix the crap from 06/09, especially since this looks to me like the beginning of the end. I don’t give a rats behind how it’s done, let it be that Helena & Luke brainwashed Holly into thinking she messed around with Luke & to think that Ethan is his. Hell they can even be in cahoots with her crazy cousin Basil for all I care just as long as it’s corrected. Then Robert/Holly/Ethan can all leave together heading for Australia and a… Read more »

Not interested in the OLTL characters. They had their show and their ending. THis is GH and they shouldn’t come to GH.
I like that FH and TR are coming but sad it is for Robin’s exit. I just hope RC and FV leave the door open for a Scrubs happy ending with Emma. I rather Robin, Patrick and Emma leave together.

Michael, It’s Anna Devane. Not Anna Scorpio. She hasn’t been married to Robert for a couple decades now. Let’s get our GH history right. I’m excited to hear that Emma will reprise her role as Holly. She’s always been a fave since day one when Luke saw her skinnydipping in the woods. Hoping for great scenes with Ethan and Robert.

He also called Holly Sutton Scorpio, she has not been married to Robert for years either.

Why not? There was never a divorce. Holly tore those papers up and threw them in the river. So technically aren’t they still married? Or is a divorce something we’re supposed to assume happened off screen? Grant it I could’ve missed something. I’m just sayin’.

Holly did indeed tear the divorce papers once she learned of Robert’s death.

pris ruth

Holly and Robert were legally married, and they never were legally divorced…Anna and Robert were legally divorced. When they remarried, Holly was presumed dead, but she was actually alive, which made Anna and Robert’s second marriage null and void.

Best thing FV & RC did was bring these two back.

Anna couldn’t do that when she was Police Commissioner why would she be able to do that now? The mob moved in hot and heavy under her watch.

Anna couldn’t do it, she was a horrible police chief, Robert had to come all the way from Australia to fixed the mess Anna made, the whole police dept were in bed with the mob under Anna’s watch, still love her tho, but fact is fact. lol Robert was the best police commissioner bar none. In a league of his own.

I have been watching old GH videos, and one thought keep coming to my mind. When Holly returned in 2009, and the scene in which Anna jumped out of an airplane or a helicopter, and proceeded to fight with Robert, she showed no surprise at Holly being alive. However, the last she knew when Faison supposedly kidnapped her, Holly was dead……yet she never blinked when she saw Holly. She just began to tear into her, yet she asked Luke if he were Luke Spencer. Could Anna have known that Holly were alive the entire time? Faison did..as he set Holly… Read more »

I am so excited about this because at last the horrible regime is gone and GH has great new people in charge. I have every faith that Holly will finally be in character for the first time since 1993 ! I cannot wait to see Emma Samms and Tristan Rogers light up the screen again ! Robert and Holly are GH’s best love story of all time. I really hope Ron fixes the mess that is Ethan and makes him the Scorpio he always should’ve been !
