Well, we heard the rumors that since General Hospital’s Kimberly McCullough will be exiting her role as Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake in the not-to-distant future, that the powers that be were planning on bringing back her on-screen parents for the sad scenario and more!

First, GH announced the Daytime Emmy winner, Finola Hughes would be reprising her role as Anna Devane.  But this afternoon TV Line exclusively has learned that Tristan Rogers is returning as well as papa Robert Scorpio!

According to TV Line’s Matt Mitovich, “Rogers is due back on our screens in mid-February, and not for a short stint but “the foreseeable future,” I am told. And though a GH rep declines to confirm Robert is returning for Robin’s exit story… that’s where the smart money is at, amiright?”

It will be great to have Tristan back where he belongs after he was recently ushered off The Young and the Restless!

We don’t know about you guys, but we think the Scorpio drama( if handled and written well), could give the ailing GH a boost, plus the arrival of Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati who officially started yesterday steering the ship in Port Chuck!

I would love to see a Robert/Luke adventure. I think Tristan & Anthony have some serious talent. Maybe with Robert back, Mac can get a real storyline?

Tristan had awesome chemistry with Geary. My God. And he looks so like a brother to Mac Scorpio. I would like to see a brother relationship with those two. Brother issues, and crime problem solving together, but then with Robert, back sliding as a Law abiding citizen bc of his friendship and THICK as THIVES relationship with Luke. Geary has awesome chemistry with Sonny, but they never utilized it much. They should of been best friends in the show, and been more partner’s in crime, so all the wait wouldn’t of been on Maurice (sonny) in terms of going home and studying long pages of script. They were best friends in the show at one time but the show changed the direction of that. Even Geary has said when accepting Emmy’s, he has thanked Benard (sonny) for being such a FORCE when they work together. Geary needs to be challenged with the BEST, and although Benard is excellent, he needs a break in memorizing so many lines. Sonny can have a life/problems that isn’t ALWAYS about the mob,

It’s not too many that Tristan Rogers doesn’t have chemistry with, honestly, he even have chemistry with babies/children and pets. The guy is a chemistry magnet and so charismatic. I am so glad he’s back on GH.

DAMN! I wish he had more sense then to return to the show willing to kill off his beloved (on-screen) daughter (which, come on, they so are!). Though I think he, Ron and Frank will gel really well, I didn’t want him to return now as a show of support for what they’re doing to Robin.

GH didn’t have a choice. Sadly, Kimberly McCullough (Robin) chose to leave the show and pursue her dream of directing (or producing) films. With her not planning on coming back, and Patrick not leaving the show (thank God)… It seems the way to go. I don’t like it… But understand it.

Jules
Jules

Oh I understand GH had a choice. GH was absolutely right to! I just wish TR said not at this time, and wait until the tragedy of Robin’s death died down (forgive the pun). TR isn’t shy about speaking his mind. A boycott and a statement from TR explaining why he refused to return would have been enough for me to email him a kiss from me.

……Though if, (and it’s a small if), they really aren’t killing Robin off, then I stand by TR and his decision to return and wait for it on pins and needles.

Sadly, Kmc is leaving on her own and the show must go on without her. I don’t want her to leave but what can they do? I am hoping for the Scorpio’s to become prominent in the city again, lord knows the port charles police Dept need Robert Xavier Scorpio!!

Sassy

Well, it’s about time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gosh, I am soooooooo excitied.Robert X.Scorpio is back!! Now I have to start watching GH.

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about! Bringing back the big guns…first Anna, now Robert. To the soap gods that are listening–please make Laura next!!!!

That’s great for him and GH.

A Y&R viewers loss for sure, Thanks for nothing MAB! I guess we have Jack/Genvieve and Kevin/Snookiegirl who needed a couple with awesome chemistry like Jill/Colin.

You never know, it may benefit Y&R viewers. MAB may see him on GH and want him. LOL She seems to value the popular veteran actors working on other soaps and now TR is one of those once again.

Congratulations to him hopefully they will treat him better than the Y&R writers did. If GH or Scorpio’s run ends I sure hope Y&R scoops him up. Let’s hope there’s new leadership and writing at Y&R before that happens so we can see a true romance for Jill and Colin.

You are so right, Liza!

Tristan Rogers had so much heat in his scenes with Jess Walton (Jill). It is a shame they had to make his Colin a complete monster just to make Cane look like the good guy.

I’m so exited about Tristan & Finola returning, its about damn time, hope more legacy characters are coming home.

Legacy characters are def the way to go. Look at what they did for DOOL. It’s time for GH to be where they belong… On top!

I am so happy about this …To see both Finola and Robert back on GH is the best news I have had about my soaps …in months..only thing that would be better is to find out that AMC and OLTL had been saved!!

BTW, I like Y&R but they just did not utilize Tristan’s Talent effectively..imho..and I named my 2nd son after Tristan…hehe

Anne

Now bring back frisco and felicia, and sean, and tiffany.

Anna and Robert, but not Frisco and Felicia, nor Sean and tiffany. Frisco was ok, but Felicia, I hated a baby voice that NEVER grew up. Sean was fine, and Tiffany was mature BUT she never brought anything UNIQUELY her own to the role. Even her glamour seemed phony. It all 4 of them were brought back, along with Anna and Robert, makes 6., it would be TRYING TO RE-CREATE THE PAST, and that can not be done!!!!! Some of these people are not on screen anymore and therefore haven’t kept themselves up and screen ready. 2 out of those 6, Anna and Robert, only. That SB ige BS was just that BS.

I am mixed on this. I don’t want Robert and Anna back to kill off Robin. I want to see scenes with Robin and her parents with Patrick and Emma. Really hope FV and RC can convince Kimberly to stay or find a way to give Scrubs and Emma a happy ending.

General Hospital and Anna are waiting for you baby.

Hope you stay on the show for for a while even after Robin dies.

Robin and Patrick are the reason i’m watching GH. fav. supercouple… i’m sorry she’s leaving the show… however, soap fan that i am… i was surprised to see Patrick’s chemistry with Sam… when he went back to the coffee house looking for his daughters doll… and they got to talking… drinking coffee together… it was touching. it would give her that long sought child she’s always wanted…. duh… i just forgot, she may be pregnant by “franko” that being said… it would make it easier… to see patrick with some one… and give robins little girl a mother.

Val

It is about time for this to happen. I quit GH many years ago, due to the imbalance of the mob and their “heroic” ways. I peeked in every now & then to check it, and came away with “good riddance” each time. But now, with Carlivati and Tristan & Finola, it looks like a new day may be dawning. I absolutely will be returning to GH to see what they put together. No matter what happens I will boycott Katie Couric’s show. Sick to death of more talk/cooking/reality clone shows clogging up the airwaves. Thrilled that GH at least has a shot at surviving.

Excited about seeing TR and ES back on GH. Hopefully this time, it will be written right putting Robert and Holly back together. Otherwise, this will just be one more major disappointment. These returns always seem like a roll of the dice, you never know what you’ll get. Well I’m hoping this time the dice comes up Robert and Holly together.

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
