Emma Samms Returns To General Hospital!

Courtesy/FVTwitter

Big news was first heard at the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend main event Saturday, from none other than Emma Samms (Holly)!

Emma was on hand at the event and took to the stage with the other GH cast members and confirmed her return to the ABC soap, when a fan asked what she was doing there?  However Emma revealed, she could not say anything more!  No storyline info was divulged!

However now that the news is out, General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini, who also made an appearance at the main event GH luncheon Saturday, tweeted another confirmation of the return of Samms on his Twitter account this morning.

Valentini related, “Guess the secret’s out!!”  He also shared a pic from the green room at GH’s ABC studios with he and Emma!

So what do you think about the return of Holly?  How will she play into the storyline?  Are you happy about Emma returning to GH?  Share your thoughts below!

Love Holly, SO happy Emma’s back for a bit. I hope Cartini can start to fix the damage Guza did to this beloved 80s heroine!

I’m trilled! I hope Tristen Rogers is coming back, too. Last we heard Robert Scorpio was in a coma and Holly was with him.

Totally agree with you! Tristan Roberts a/k/a Robert Scorpio should have stayed on all along. I feel there is so much for him to interact with Anna and Duke. Also, we should find out what condition he’s in regarding his coma. More than anything, I’m hoping he can help rescue Robin so that she can return even if it’s only for a short time because of how busy she is now that she is directing. Hopefully, he can also help Luke find Jerry Jax and get the help he needs before it’s too late. Then of course, they both could… Read more »

I love the way you blended “Robin’s” life with “Kimberly’s” life. (Is Robin off directing ?)

Ii’ll be happy to have Emma back if she can accomplish three things: 1) to undo this Ethan crap that she and Luke slept together which resulted in Ethan; 2) explain convincingly to Laura that it was a con that had to perpetrated to save Luke and his family; 3) find Robert and bring him out of the coma either by her wiles or by getting him medical attention

LOVE that Holly is back. Holly is my fave female character ever on GH. My favorite male character just happens to be her son Ethan so if Nathan could come back for awhile, I’d be very happy! I hope Robert comes out if his coma, too!

Ethan/Nathan just may be back soon…his prime time show was recently cancelled, so he could possibly be available again for GH! Really enjoyed his last too-brief appearance…..

Yep, Bunheads got cancelled. He recently did a Lifetime Channel movie so he’s been doing other things. Just hope it works to be back on GH for at least a little while.

According to GHNewsAndScoops on Twitter, you may get your wish….it indicates that” Ethan Lovett” shall indeed be returning. These tweets have proven to be a pretty reliable source…up until a week or so ago, they were supposedly “authored” by “Heather Webber”…and it was insanely demented and funny. They just switched over to Ava Jerome as its “host” now, and while the info still seems to be as accurate, it’s not nearly as entertaining….but worth a look each day, though! P.S. It would seem that “Julian” is definitely going to be Sam’s daddy…soooooo disappointing!!! Cannot stand the guy playing him….he just… Read more »

This will hopefully bring Robert back as well. And end this horrific Robin storyline that’s been drug on for too long. What the photo doesn’t show was a man in a bloody shirt, who is likely Anthony Geary.

I agreee totally with Scott—-END the “Story line” with Robin & Robert & Dr Olbrect—Bring back Robin on a reoccuring basis that or recast Robin…

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

The show wouldn’t recast Robin. They tried that once and Finola Hughes nearly s–t herself and stopped it. Just work around Kim’s schedule. She’s stated she’s willing if the work schedule was decent for her. Either end the horrific storyline or kill her off for real.

Mary

I agree…I want Robin back…Holly was with Robert, he wakes up, tells Anna that Robin is alive…they find her and bring her home!!! Patrick and Sabrina storyline is soooo boring, I actually fast forward when they are on.

I love Emma Samms. First boyhood crush. She’s amazing and is a great beautiful person outside the cameras in everything she does for children charities. She has deep roots in the #GH history and deserves to be back in the 50th anniversary. I wish she was back permanently but she family back in England. Also she is the best GH twitterer and is totally worth the follow. She’s hilarious and has great tweets: @emmasamms1

My mother loves Holly and returned to GH when she returned to the show last year…it has been nice watching with Mom again in the months since. She hasn’t been overly critical of the various returns and has embraced the new characters as well, mostly just happy to see multigenerational stories return to GH and soaps in general. I am following her lead and just enjoying every time a classic character pops up in any capacity. My 20-year old sister is all Sabrina/Britt/Patrick/Felix/Maxie/Lulu all the time, as I remember being about the teens/young people in the 90s, so the beat… Read more »

Glad Emma Samms is returning, hope this mean they’re tying up some loose ends The whole storyline with Faison/Duke, Robert and Anna working together again, Robert finding Robin and all that, was so well done for 95% of it, but the way they ended it, leaving Robert in a coma never to be seen or heard from again, that was terrible, so I hope this is their way of addressing that.

Jake R.
Guest
Jake R.

Kimberly McCullough is trying to direct feature films. She is not available to GH at this time. Because Robert knows Robin is still alive, he can’t come out of the coma unless 1) KM is coming back to the show as a regular or to tie up her storyline or 2) Robert comes out of the coma with no memory of seeing Robin.

I am the biggest Robert Scorpio fan so believe me, I want him back, I just don’t think its possible right now.

I think it’s great news that Emma Samms is returning to GH as Holly. I have always loved her in that role. Would be nice when she returns if Tristan Rogers as Robert recovers from his coma and returns also. I think Holly and Robert make a great couple!!!!! Would love to have them involved in a storyline together!!!!!

Cheryl D.

I hope they fix the character assination that has been done to Holly over the years. I loved Holly in the 80’s but not the Holly that they turned her into in the times she has come back. Hope this time is different.

Tristan
Guest
Tristan

Thrilled!!!! Clearly if Emma is returning, Tristan Rogers will not be far behind. Great news. Some have speculated that Robert/Holly, Anna/Duke will team to find Robin and end that story. Bringing Luke (and Laura) into the mix would make it SHEER HEAVEN for this fan. Here’s hoping.

Nice to have her back ,I’m assuming her return will tie in with Luke.
It would be nice to have Robert back too ! And Robin….oh where for art tho Robin ?

Wow.. guess Ron and Frank are continuing to play the what veteran character to ruin game. Since Holly was ruined by the previous regime, wonder if they might actually repair the character.

Personally, it’s good that a veteran from the heyday is back.

janet

I liked Holly, I thought she was great with Robin, and when I read she used blackmail to not automatically help Robin I was disgusted. I had shut the show off at that time, So I was surprised. Guess I shouldn’t have been with Guza at the helm destroying all the characters. I hope she brings back Robert , he is the one character I never FF no matter who”s in a scean with him. and gets to interact with Emma. A vet is always better than the scummy show.

I’m so glad she’s coming back too. I love her. I just hope it’s not another case of a brief pop up to appease the old GH fans and then she’s gone again. I’d love her to be involved in a decent storyline, hopefully with Robert and Anna, and maybe even Shawn.

I’d also like to find out that she lied and Ethan is not Luke’s son.

And I agree Scott. They need to end this Robin storyline sometime this century!

Jake R.
Guest
Jake R.

Even if they were to rewrite history and say Ethan is NOT Luke’s son, he still admitted to going off and sleeping with Holly while married to Laura; so regardless of whether or not a child was borne from that, Luke still cheated on Laura 🙁

Had to reply here Shay…somehow i missed that part with Ava and Tracy at Kellys(tip to Heather) ill have to rewatch that scene. Also about Patrick, Sabrina, and Sam…Sabrinas problem is she isnt strong enough…seems insecure…and mostly its the actress’s voice…i cant describe it at the moment but when she talks she doesnt sound right…maybe its the dialouge given her…not certain but i like the actress and felt she, Micheal, Starr/Kiki/Lauren wouldve made a better love triangle. And i noticed better chemistry between Patrick and Sam…in some ways Sam closely resembles Robin…Patrick shouldve fell for Sam instead.

I absolutely love Emma. She is a big part of GH. I was so sorry that she was not around for GH’s 50th Anniversary. I hope Tristan will follow shortly. Robert and Holly was GH’s best couple ever!

That’s 100% true. My mom has been watching GH since the very first episode in 1963 and loved Holly in the 80s. I was born in 1984, and she named me after her.

Would have preferred the Cassadine story with Stefan!
Sorry guys Nikolas alone is barely a Cassadine. He is frankly rather dull without the family.

But then this is now a cartoon seemingly so Luke can return and gloat I guess UGH

I would be thrilled if GH could reunite Holly with Robert, the true love of her life. They shared such magic back during their marriage . I never thought he and Anna were such a great couple together. I preferred her with Duke.

Don’t fall for this stunt. They’ll bring her in for 2 wks to jump ratings then back to OLTL. Cartini does not like GH. It’s a platform they hijacked.

Having Holly back would be nice, great even—BUT so far when people return they make them out to be wrong or bad or rediculous–something is always “off” with them. (it is like they have set out to make GH charecters silly so they can change it to be OLTL-Port Charles. Like when they made fun of Anna & Robert for being spies & all that they have done–this is a soap opera–NOTHING is stupid—we are supposed to swallow it alll-so those kiinds of comments ???? And then to make Luke & Laura—-NOT be Luke & Laura….Really ?????

Holly without Robert would be a non story. Especially since they made a point of leaving Robert with Holly. Also, Sean is back in mid to late August for a few days. Again, without Robert this would make no sense. With these people, though, nothing would surprise me.

Well considering how much RC has effed up the other returns, I’m not holding out much hope for a coherent storyline that make even a modicum of sense. Why he still has a job in daytime completely mystifies me.

Love the idea of Holly, but wish her and Robert Scorpio would come together too. Great back story there. Always wanted Anna and Robert actually back together.

Emma Samms was missed during anniversary time, and this is welcome news. I want some closure, though, with loose ends, particularly Robin. I have always loathed the off-canvas plots of kept prisoner in a foreign country, or comatose for years. If no one wants recasts, then please, just give the characters a happy ending and send them off. Then if we want them back, bring them back broken and ready for repair with new drama. I hope Holly can ignite some middle-aged to now-senior heat for Luke, Laura, Scotty, Tracy, Robert, Anna and Duke. And be akey to ending this… Read more »

Hmmm…never heard that he failed to pay his child support, which is what a true deadbeat dad is…..but he was an absent father, so that is all the more reason he needs to come back and try to make amends. Maxi’s delivery of his first grandchild could be sooo perfect if only Frisco could show up as a surprise. Then he could also try again to throw a monkeywrench into the ridiculous Mac/Felicia nups….not that I care about him getting back together with his ex. I think they need to give Mr. Jones a nice, fresh start, and his former… Read more »

Robert could be coming back…i hope he is and TPTB are keeping it hushed to suprise fans…i think it really depends on the right moment. Maybe Patrick and Sabrina are getting married and he shows up at the church with Robin. That’ll also depend on K.M. avaiability!

Shay
Guest

Oh God forbid we are subjected to an actual marriage between the doctor and the babysitter! Just having to see them together at all is an absolute pukefest!!!! Yesterday’s episode was totally ruined by their scenes together….it just totally defies reason that someone like Drake Jr. would be with that silly, clingy little thing…the other day when he comforted Sam, it revealed more chemistry between those two characters than the entire contrived romance with “Nurse Santiago!” How can the ptb’s not see what a dreadful mistake this whole storyline has been? And no, I am not that pro-Robin…other than wanting… Read more »

The BLT/LSD thing was quite subtle…it was after Tracy’s failed attempt to win back control of ELQ, and Ava and she were at Kelley’s. Ava said she heard they had great BLT sandwiches, or something to that effect. And Tracy uttered a quick line about LSD….it was very rapid!!!! But you knew that Cartini was doing some clever homage to Heather….as for “Sabrina,” I just could never abide the actress playing her, not from day one. I had a visceral dislike for her, and I don’t think anything, a different storyline or look, would have changed that…just being honest. You… Read more »

GH Double Wedding Promo: Who Will Tie the Knot? Maxie and Peter? Anna and Finn? Neither Couple?

This week’s it’s the highly-anticipated double wedding of Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) on General Hospital, but already things look pretty dismal that any nuptials will take place, or will they?

We already know that Anna and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) have figured out Peter is a very bad guy, Maxie is having second doubts of marrying the guy, someone enters the picture unexpected from the latest promo and the end of last Friday’s cliffhanger, Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) got some motherly news for Peter,  and Finn is on a mission to find out if he is the bio-son of Chase (Josh Swickard), and not his father Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and more!

On Monday, ABC released its promo for the nuptials, which does have guests seated at the wedding, but who will show up to say their “I do’s”?

 

In the latest issue of SOD on newsstands now, GH co head-writer, Chris Van Etten shared what fans should expect, revealing: “The double wedding is the crescendo and climax of years of stories, secrets and lies – and by the time it’s over, the lives of everybody involved will have been changed forever.”

Watch the teaser below.

Now, let us know: Do you think either couple, Maxie and Peter, or Anna and Finn ,will actually get hitched? How do you think the drama will go down on Port Charles? Weigh-in via the comment section.
