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

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!

Anna and Robert back… woohoo!

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.

Heather

General Hospital and Anna are waiting for you baby.

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

Patrick

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.

Robert Xavier Scorpio is back—The coolest character ever..GH is about to get real interesting…BTW The PCPD definitely need him..

Welcome back, Tristan! Since Emma Samms is also returning, I cannot wait to start watching GH again!

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
