Big news today out of General Hospital!  Daytime Emmy winner, Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) is returning to the soap as part of Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) exit storyline.

According to Soap Opera Digest, “Insiders say that Hughes’s trip won’t be a just a layover, either. “She will be back in the canvas for a while,” shares a setsider.   Though the show won’t confirm, we’ve heard rumblings that Robin’s father,  Robert Scorpio, otherwise know as Tristan Rogers (last seen as Y&R’s Colin), may not be far behind!”

This could be a five hankie moment if both Anna and Robert return to either usher Robin off the canvas, or if the character gets “killed-off”.    We shall see!

Are you excited about Finola returning to GH, and Tristan possibly set for a return too?  Let us know!

Oh, my goodness!!! love, love Robert and Anna..They rock on all levels, I hope TR is not far behind..To finally have all the Scorpios together again would be a dream come true. However losing Robin would be devastating.

Having Anna and Robert back would be a kick! I don’t like the way they’re killing Robin off. But it is true about the med’s. I hope it sends a message to the youth of today who don’t take safe sex and HIV serious.

This has been what I as a long time GH fan have been dreaming of, finally, someone is getting a clear picture that when we say we want old faves back, we really mean that. if frank and ron (GH new Dual) is responsible for this then i’m an instant fan. Hope its true she’s sticking around longer, and would love her to be back on contract. Finola Hughes is awesome and i never understood why GH never got her back full time sooner. oh wait i know, its because they had these idiots who didn’t see pass The sonny… Read more »

Regardless of how Kimberley /Robin exits the show ,Finola AND Tristan need to be part of this story line.

Would love to see them both, but not at the expense of Robin’s exit…another one of GH’s returns that I would LOVE to see is Richard Dean Anderson as JEFF WEBBER…I think Monica could use an old flame to ignite under her again…Someone should consider asking Rick IF he would be interested in coming back…extra weight and all the gray hair! Elizabeth and Steven needs to have their father in their lives right now…some guidance and support is needed really bad! ALL of his fans would love to see him back on the tube in that role…All that work he… Read more »

I certainly don’t want to see Robin (Kimberly) leave the show, but she really has been on GH most of her life. So, I can see her moving on to better things. I hope she isn’t going to just disappear like she wanted Jason to help her do. But, is she going to die from the injection Lisa gave her or is it with the AIDS combination? And if she is going to die, I’m glad the writers are bringing back her parents, Anna and Scorpio…..

I really wish FH wasn’t coming back because I wish she was boycotting the plan to kill off Robin (come on, we all know it’s coming). For the same reason, I hope TR doesn’t come back either. He is someone who won’t pussyfoot the issue and won’t just sign on because of the paycheck. Truth be told, under normal circumstance, what I would PAY to see TR and FH back on GH again. I was looking at pictures from a recent Habitat for Humanity build with the cast of GH, and if I told you I knew who HALF the… Read more »

I don’t know if I can deal with Robin dying of HIV or dying for any reason. We keep getting hit with one set of bad news blows after another. Losing Robin but gaining FH…gah, just such a bitter pill. It’s the sadness I don’t think I can deal with. I love Robin, maybe more than I should love a fictional character, but I bonded to her character when I was only 7 or 8, just a kid. We’ve grown up together in a way, or I’ve grown up watching her grow up. When I was having issues with clothes… Read more »

“… it’s the sadness i don’t think I can deal with” i’m a true soap fan…. over 30 years…. have lived with all of them…. robins one of my favorite characters as well… she played and acted top notch her character having hiv/aids. to see her get married and most of all having her own child… it is possible with hiv. i just watched wednesday, 12-14-11 episode… when she told jason… that Lisa may have or was giving her placebo’s…. switched her meds…. i cried for her. she has the life she’s always wanted and her dream realized… so… i’m… Read more »

The story that is going around is Robin convinces her mother to help her disappear after she first approched Jason and Brenda and that Finola Hughes is going to stay on for a while. Therefore if GH makes it Robin can always come back.

I could not care less about traitor Anna returning. If the new PTB wanna knock the ratings off the charts, it will take two moves, kill Sonny, ending the mob and make Ethan a Scorpio. I’d love to have it revealed that Ethan was stolen from Holly while she was in the coma and that once she found out about him she was being threatened with his death all these years and then have Robert discover the culprits behind the threats were none other than Anna and Faison with Luke in on it. The reason? Anna jealous that Robert never… Read more »

Could not care less about traitor Anna returning. Am excited though to know that Holly/Robert will be back. Even if the writing turns out to be poor and R/H fans don’t get to see what we want…Ethan revealed to be Robert’s son…at least we get to see Emma Samms & Tristan Rogers for a short time. We can only cross our fingers that they’ll have some scenes together.

I DON.T THINK THEY SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT ANYONE BACK ON THE EXPENSE OF KILLING ROBIN OFF. THERE COULD HAVE BEEN ANOTHER WAY INSTEAD OF ALL THE SADNESS THAT IS FOLLOWING. THE WORLD HAS ENOUGH SADNESS THEN TO GIVE US MORE SADNESS AND GRIEF. YOU KILLED OFF COLE HOPE AND ROBIN. WHY? I CAN’t EVEN WATCH THE PROGRAM RIGHT NOW. BARBARA

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
