GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Comes Face To Face With Robin In An Episode Filled With Great Performances!



Monday’s episode of General Hospital was well worth the wait, after our reported review of last Friday’s cliffhanger!

There were some tender moments, and some wonderfully performed scenes from the ensemble cast of the ABC soap opera as Robin finally came face to face and had some words with her beloved father, Robert and then the capper …  at the end of the episode the hankie-filled moment when Anna lays eyes on Robin for the first time in almost two years!

Kimberly McCullough (Robin) showed us why she is still, and will always be that beloved gal that we watched grow up on GH when she uttered, “Daddy!” upon seeing Robert (Tristan Rogers)!  It was a very touching moment for long time GH fans.

We have to give kudos again to the amazing Kathleen Gati  (Dr. Obrecht) who is able to deliver some pretty outrageous dialog, and wonderful one-liners, as she spewing her venom at Anna (Finola Hughes) and Duke (Ian Buchanan) over Faison’s (Anders Hove) obsession with Anna.  And yet we feel and understand in a twisted way, Liesl’s emotional pain!

And how great was Finola Hughes! You got to love Anna Devane and how she undermines the criminals.  It is great to see a woman of such power on soap operas!  In another hankie-filled moment, Anna tells Duke, after they have finally got Dr. O tied up and out of the way, that Robin is alive.   Duke tells Anna to go find her, which sets up the final moments of the episode when Anna sees Robin!

Anthony Geary (Luke) showed why he once again is one of the finest actors, if not the finest in the genre!  In his showdown scene with Faison, Luke recalled the horror and pain that Faison caused his family by brainwashing Lucky and turning him against him and Laura  …  and for what he has done to Robert, Anna and Robin.  Geary said it all in his eyes, before he attempted to shoot Faison.

A couple of our favorite lines of the day: Anna calling Obrecht, in a turn of the tables, “You stupid cow” and when Michael Saucedo, who returned as Juan Santiago,  told Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that he married a wonderful woman named, “Becky!”  That was a very cute nod by the writing team on Michael and Becky’s real life relationship.

Patrick (Jason Thompson) got an earful from Ava Jerome played by the electric Maura West.  Ava tells him that Robin is alive, and Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) also had a nice moment when Juan showed up with her mother’s wedding dress which meant so much to Sabrina.  And … there’s still more drama to come in the days ahead!

So, what was your favorite moment from yesterday’s episode of GH? Was it Robin coming face to face with Anna?  What performance stood out to you?  Let us know!

Haven’t watched yet. Am still on the 11/21 show on OnDemand. Looks excellent, though.

Not a spoiler if the episode has already aired. This discusses Monday’s episode. If you don’t want to know plot points, why seek out articles discussing future episodes beyond what you’ve seen?

I agree Kansas, can’t expect people to pause and wait for those behind to catch up…. with the exception of weekends and holidays, GH airs daily….so oh well. I agree those individuals behind in viewing shouldn’t be online spoiling our discussion.

Anyway, it was a beautiful reunion with Anna,Robert and even Duke. I liked how they kept Duke (hopeless romantic) behind to coach Robin into following her heart and trying to stop that wedding.

Credit goes to everyone involved, especially the writers Jean Passanante and Suzanne Flynn. They really wrote to the core strengths of the actors and should be commended. I have no doubt this week will elevate GH to ratings gold. Kathleen Gati is enormously talented. I wish she could stick around in PC forever.

Simple put the look on Anna’s face when she first sees Robin. Finola Hughes does not need to speak a word her facial expressions do all the talking. Tuesday’s episode even better than what I expected. Anna & Robin reunited how can it get any better than that on GH!

Would love to see Kathleen Gati paired with Robin Mattson..It will be hysterical and delicious to watch..Like a Thelma and Louise kind of thing.

Agree completely… would be interesting to see Heather, Dr. O and Faison in the same mental ward sort of like when Lucy, Heather and Todd were in ther together. Heather could show Dr. O and Faison how she breaks out and the three could have adventures in PC regularly… that would be fun!!!

Shay and i were discussing the same thing a few threads ago…happy others want the same thing!!!

Great minds think alike, Heidi and Omar….just discussed this very idea with jimh on the previous post. What endless opportunities there would be for the “Demented Duo” to get into all sorts of unsavory situations with the “BLT Queen!” Although Faison will most likely have to come and go from the GH canvas, given Anders Hove’s foreign base of operation, the “Glorious Gati” as “Dr. O.” is the real (and most realistic) keeper. No matter the circumstances, that glittering gem of criminality, corruption and cold-hearted calculation MUST remain in Port Charles. Karaoke night at the Miscavage anyone????

Agree great minds think alike… and if we are lucky maybe RC and/or his writing team will read this and other threads and get some great ideas!!! Jimh and Shay and others have had some very clever story line ideas! The possibilities are endless. Anders did say in his interview… that he would welcome coming back for more fun!

One can certainly hope that those in charge have read our suggestions and (in response to our clamorous requests) will devise a clever ploy to make Kathleen Gati a permanent Port Charles fixture. Her brilliantly brutal “Mutta” has won her the most loyal and enthusiastic following that has been seen on GH in many moons! I cannot fathom a future without at least the promise of her character on the canvas, such has been her incredibly indelible impression as GH’s fiercely flawed, yet beloved, supervillain, “Dr. O.!” Along with Anders Hove, she has created the most crazy-creepy couple ever! Long live this deeply dysfunctional duo of doom!

GH has been really good whenever the Scorpios are on, Carlivati has done a great job. That flashback of Anna&Robin’s reunion in the Asian Quarter, just as Robin&Anna see each other again, WOW, RC really seems to have his pulse on what the fans want to see. I’m a blubbering wreck after today’s show, Scorpio family group hug? What a moment! I was even happy to see Duke enter the scene, ’80s nostalgia. GH is the best it’s been since its ’80s heyday. Loving it.

Agree completely… Maddie Hayes… love the Scorpios!!!

i cried so much yesterday, with robert and robin scorpio. i had a lump on my throat. this was worth the wait. general hospital sure did a wonderful job with the storyline. i will watch todays episode with robin and anna. just to mention no general hospital thursday or friday, due to the holiday thanksgiving. i hope they keep dr. o. i love her so much. i want her to sing again. she is a terrific actress, and the lady can sing. lol.

Phenomenal…Tristan…Finola…Kimberly…Ian…Katleen…love GH it has been so good!!!!!

There’s no better duo on all of daytime than Anna and Robin. So happy that Tristan Rogers and Kimberly were both able to come back to do this story which was well-done and emotional but never over the top. Finola is the Queen. Nothing else to be said!

What could get better than an Anna and Robin reunion is the mother daughter reunion with Robin and Emma and when Patrick sees her!

I loved it all!!! My favorites were of course with Robin and Robert… Robin, Robert and Anna… Anna and Dr. O and Duke… Luke and Faison… Where is Nickolas and will somebody please get him back upstairs!!! I too liked the line that Juan said to Liz about his wife Becky. I liked that at the end of Ava and Patrick’s conversation he was looking at his wedding picture and thinking could Robin really be alive… YES!!! Lots of great moments but the ending was the very best!!! Can’t wait to see Robin and Anna… hope they sort of run or walk fast to get to that hug that reminds you so much of when Anna and Robin ran to each other in the chinese corner after her kidnapping.

Loved Friday and Monday!!! Can’t get enough of Robert, Anna, Robin, Luke, Faison, Dr O, and Duke in those scenes. It must be said I was so happy to see that Faison was wearing a bullet proof vest and will hopefully be able to be back to reek havoc again… please!!!

Well done again GH!!! Best Cast!!! Best story!!! Best Crew!!! Wish every day could be like Friday and Monday!!! Best cliff hangers!!! LOVE GH!!! THANK YOU!!!

F Hughes should absolutely win an emmy this year!

i agree finola should win this year. she wasnt nominated last year, that was not right. she is a wonderful actress.

Michael Fairman, do you know why you’re a genius? Because after watching a show like today’s, there’s nothing better than reading about it and reliving it again with others that love it as much as we do!

Yes, completely agree with Jenny, well said.

Well said and totally agree Jenny!!!

Everyone you mention in this article is why I watch and enjoy GH. So please, more of this bunch, and less of Kiki, Franco, Sonny, and Carly.

I wholeheartedly agree with you!

Absolute perfection, that’s Finola Hughes. Where else can a soap fan watch two actresses who have the kind of relationship Finola and Kimberly have get to work such great scenes? Kudos to GH for getting Kimberly and Tristan back for this really amazing story.

Today was simply amazing with the Anna-Robin reunion….totally heartwarming, as was the special moment when Duke arrived. Just wonderful. Also must give credit to Britt for her strong performance with both Brad and Patrick….how torturous it was that she could not reveal the truth to Drake Jr. about his wife! You know she desperately wanted to spill…I know I desperately wanted her to spill! This silly Sappy stuff just has to be scrapped…it has gotten beyond stupifying!!! The past few days all of her prenuptial nonsense has been laid on so thick you could cut it with a knife. Enough of the boring babysitter and her “Cinderella” scenario, “magic wedding dress,” and the possessive motherly behavior with Emma….she’s NOT your daughter! (Maybe they should start a support group for ShrewLu and Sappy….they both covet other people’s children….) Please just FINALLY put everyone out of this moronic Disney-propelled misery and get the Scorpio-Drakes back to their realistic, adult romance…they’ve earned it. We’ve earned it!!!! And leave “Sobby” stuck at the altar right where she belongs: to suffer in a permanent “Patrick-less” state.

I’ve said it before and I will keep sayin it. When the show can be this good by focusing in beloved characters….when will this show end its fascination with Sonny?? When sonny is not on…I lovw he show. When he is on, his misogynistic, self-pityong, hypocritical, greasy murdering thug persona just drains the show of life and ruins it for me. This is a character who has been responsible for countless deaths, has shot his own son at point blank range, threatened to murder the mother of his child, and countless other crimes. He recently also begrudgingly agreed not to kill Julian because he might have the bone marow to save a kid. How about not killing someone because basic morality says that murder is wrong?? Villains like Obrecht and Faison and jerry et al don’t offend me so much because they are villains…presented and played as evil. But Sonnys reign of terror has been relentless and unabated since 1993….and he is continuously portrayed as a hero. It is disgusting and through several regimes and vocal fan discontent this shows no sign of changing. I so wish Sonny would die a violent death…and rid the show of this blight. And to show that when you choose to live your life as a career criminal…there are consequeces. Or let Sonny and his caterwauling mob moll Olivia leave town happy together…that would make so many viewers happy. Okay…my weekly Sonny rant is over.

I really like Sonny..
He is part of the cornerstone of GH, and MB is a great actor and owns the complicated Sonny character..
MB has put half his life or more into Sonny/GH and he has many fans, I’m one!!!
I hope Sonny goes out when GH goes out, that they go out together!!
Sonny is a character that brings in the dark side and yet is a family pansy, and when he loves he loves fully!!


and the pining for Jason needs to stop, too. He was reduced to a henchman with a heart of gold. Please.

I thought it was well done.

Favorite moment. Hands down. Anna seeing Robin. Finola once again knocked it out of the park with her stellar acting. Finola and Kimberly are the best together. They don’t even have to speak. Everything is seen in their eyes!

You are spot on about Finola Hughes, she in incomparable! What she does with words written on a page is just amazing.

love the entire episode everyone was awesome!

Just thinking about it I start to cry. OMG I can not wait for Patrick and Emma to see her and Mac and I could go on and on . What a great day for GH

Yep, Robin and Robert and Anna – simply superb. GH doesn’t get any better than that.

This show is so good when the vets are on I can’t say it enough. I love the show but somedays I want to hit the ff button.

GH is such an excellent show with an embarrassment of talent both in front of and behind the scenes. I am often swept away by what they manage to accomplish on that show day after day. No one will even put down the actors and production talent on a soap to me because I’ve witnessed their efforts for decades. No movie actor or prime time actor or production team comes close to producing what daytime does. I am proud to be a soap fan and to watch GH!

Amazing scenes Monday and Tuesday. Finola Hughes is the finest actress on daytime. She can do so much with one look. She elevates all her scenes. Her reunion with Robin was perfection. I wish we could keep TR because the Scorpio-Devane family, although small is a classic in daytime.

So much I loved-Anna’s look when she saw Robin, Duke seeing Robin all grown up and alive,..but if I had to pick my fav moment it was Robin and Robert’s reunion…

Her calling him Daddy and “my hero” got me specially the my hero because when I heard those words my mind flashed back to that heart-wrenching morgue scene where Robert broke down, hallucinating Robin saying to him “Where were you Daddy? You were my hero!…..”

Of all the moments of Robin’s “death” that got to me more than any and hearing Robin call Robert “Daddy” and “my hero” was like healing an ugly wound that ripped my heart out almost 2 years ago. Whether it was intentional or not, I say thanks GH for those words.

And the floodgate of joyful tears keeps flowing as we still have to see Robin with Patrick and Emma! I can’t wait!

Just watched Tuesday’s episode… and the scenes with Anna… Robin… Robert and Duke were perfection! At the beginning with Anna and Robin and Robert… I would have liked to not have the interruptions of the other storylines until they were in each other arms… but when we had those three on the screen… it was gold!!! The expressions were sheer perfection! I will be watching that over and over! Well done Finola, Kimberly and Tristan!!! Well done everyone at GH!!! The Scorpio’s are the best!!!

General Hospital’s John J. York On His Health Battle & Living Life While Waiting for Bone Marrow Transplant: “Let’s Just Go One Day At a Time”

John J. York’s positive outlook on his current medical diagnosis is quite remarkable, as his approach might be one many facing the same circumstances might consider.  The beloved General Hospital vet, where he has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years, revealed last week that he is battling cancer.

The popular soap star shared that he has been fighting myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, and multiple smoldering myeloma: two blood and bone marrow disorders.

York spoke with PEOPLE about how he found out about his diagnosis, the support his wife Vicki has shown throughout, and how he lives life day to day, while he waits for an all-important bone marrow transplant.

The actor shared what happened the moment he learned of his diagnosis: “(The doctor) was explaining all these different things and cells and all different levels and words that had, you know, 25 letters in them. And I didn’t understand. And Vicki finally came out and said, ‘Does John have cancer?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ And I’m sitting there, I’m really just like a fly on the wall, listening to him talk to Vicki because she was the one asking all the questions.  At the end of his doctor’s conversation with Vicki, York’s one question was simple: ‘Why do I feel so good?’”

Vicki and John were in the process of moving to Tennessee to be closer to their daughter, Skyler, but considering UCLA in Los Angeles as John’s treatment center.  In the end, Skyler’s husband suggested Vanderbilt University for John’s cancer center so he did not have to travel back and forth to the west coast.

Since March of this year, John has had IV chemo treatments every month, with another one coming up in September. On that, John expressed: “It is what it’s, you know what I mean? And then everybody’s gotta get their treatment. And then you go home, go about your life and you play with the kids. And here we are.”

Currently, York is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. He has been moved up the donor priority list. If anyone is interested, and you are between 18-40, you can join the registry here

York shared how Vicki is coping with what’s ahead: “Yeah, she’s scared, but believe it or not, I really kinda wasn’t because I feel great. Personally, I feel like it’s in God’s hands. God’s will be done. It’s gonna work out okay, one way or another. I’m either gonna survive or I’m not. And life goes on and things are gonna be okay for everybody… Let’s just go one day at a time.”

Share your well-wishes, and support and love to John, as he goes through the next phase of his health battle and let’s hope a bone marrow transplant donor is found for him soon. After all, we all want to see Mac Scorpio return to Port Charles, but more importantly, we all want John to feel better and beat this.Comment below.

Billy Miller’s Mother Issues Statement On His Passing

Patricia Miller, the mother of the late Billy Miller, has come forward and issued a touching statement on the tragic death of her beloved son at age 43.  The statement was shared by Billy’s longtime manager, Marnie Sparer, via social media.

Billy was best-known for his performances as Richie Nowack on All My Children, Billy Abbott of The Young and the Restless and Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital, as well as countless primetime roles.  Throughout his career, Miller took home three Daytime Emmys for his work.

“I would like to share the following thoughts,” Patricia began. “I want to personally thank the many fans & personal friends for the overwhelming amount of love, prayers & condolences sent to me and my family on the devastating death of my beautiful son BJ – Billy Miller.”

Patricia continued with these sentiments, as she wanted to clear up any misinterpretations on this death: “He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years. He did everything he could to control the disease. He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life. The other causes of death being told are not true. I wish they were but they just aren’t. We all loved him so much and are desperately trying to deal with our loss. I will have nothing further to say. Thanks for the love and support.”

The soap world as well as Billy’s family, friends, loved ones, and colleagues are in deep mourning for this talented man, who was gone too soon.

Billy Miller Remembered by His GH and Y&R Co-Stars As They Share Grief on His Passing

UPDATED: On Sunday, longtime friends and co-stars of actor Billy Miller took to social media to share their remembrances and sorrow on the passing of the three-time Daytime Emmy-winning star.

Miller passed away on Friday, September 15th as first reported and confirmed by Michael Fairman TV.  While the official cause of death has not been revealed, it has been related to the press by his management that Billy was suffering from manic depression.

Billy played Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital from 2014-2019, and prior to that won 3 Daytime Emmys for his role as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless from 2008-2014.  He started his soap career on All My Children in the role of Richie Novack back in 2007-2008.

Below are just some of the tributes pouring in for Billy:

Eric Braeden: “We lost BILLY MILLER! It saddens me deeply! He was a very gifted actor! Amelia(Victoria) and I took him to dinner one evening while he was in tough negotiations, and I remember telling him to reconsider, because rarely is an actor given a part that describes him almost perfectly, and to not make the mistake I had seen some actors make over my 60’years in the business, that they are indispensable! Once an actor thinks that or is told that by some sycophants, they step onto a slippery road…usually to oblivion! “BILLY BOY” was not only a damn good actor but a nice man! May he rest in peace and meet up with KRISTOFF in the BEYOND, ‘the undiscovered country from whose bourn no Traveller returns “ and tell each other jokes! They were both loved by their colleagues!”

Melissa Claire Egan: “My beautiful friend. I love you. I’m so sad. And I’m so sorry.”

Chrishell Stause: “Still processing this. Too many feelings, but you are gone too soon and I’m so happy I got to work with you all those years, but also call you a friend. I hope you are at peace now ”

Jess Walton:RIP to my precious Billy Miller. You were and ARE  much loved by all of us who knew you”

Daniel Goddard: “The world is going to be just that little bit more dull without you in it… you had that “it” factor that lit up every room you were in. Rest In Peace Mate ”

Nancy Lee Grahn: “So very sorry to hear this very sad and unexpected news. I would like very much for my beloved General Hospital to have no more of it. #RIPBillyMiller

Eileen Davidson: “I’m so sad to hear of Billy Miller’s passing. His infectious charm and warmth left lasting impressions on all of us who were lucky enough to have him in our lives. I’m gonna miss that mischievous smile. Love you Billy.”

Jason Thompson” “I’m so sorry and saddened to hear about my friend, Billy Miller. Heartbreaking. He was funny, had a great laugh and very talented. Light and love to his family and friends.”

Brad Bell: “Billy Miller was a great man and a gifted actor. Billy left an indelible mark on The Young and the Restless with his brilliant portrayal of Billy Abbott. He will be sorely missed.”

Stephen Nichols: “Sure gonna miss you, man.”

Finola Hughes: “Billy … far too soon … peace be with you”

Kin Shriner: “Very sad to hear about Billy Miller I so enjoyed his time on @GeneralHospital He was a really good guy and funny and kind to all !RIP Billy”

Jon Lindstrom: “Billy was gifted. He was also good-natured, smart, funny, and always impressed me as a great friend to those close to him. He didn’t blink when I asked him to put on this shirt to help raise up the marginalized artists in our industry. He always seemed to have his heart in the right place and I always laughed when I was around him. #FlightOfAngels#RIP #BillyMiller #bereft”

Frank Valentini: “I am devastated to hear news of the incredibly talented Billy Miller’s passing. On behalf of the entire (General Hospital) family, our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Elizabeth Hendrickson: “Today I should have been sending you a Happy Birthday text BJ. Truth be told i hated calling you BJ but that’s what your closest friends /family called you. I eventually caved. The last couple years we kept in touch through birthdays and monumental moments or when we wanted to vent about “ work”. You gave me a lot of advise. When i understood it always mumbling your words. We always joked about that.
We didn’t text or talk often. But I’m glad the last couple times we did, we had a great banter like we used to. I knew that we always held a special place in each others hearts, no matter what. You were such an amazing friend to your inner circle. They were your family. You would do ANYTHING for them. That’s who really were. As loyal as they came. I’m sad and yes, mad at myself that I wasn’t being a better friend, checking in more often because I was thinking of you recently. I was. I hope you know that we are all here now texting each other, sending pictures and sharing memories of how fucking AWESOME you were. This hole in my heart will never be filled. Goodnight, sweet Billy.”

Scott Clifton: “This is not fair. We deserved so much more of him. Rest in peace, Billy. You’re immortal now.”

Coby Ryan McLaughlin (ex-Shiloh, GH): “Man… this sucks. Billy and I played on GH together for nearly a year. He was intense, focused, cool and kind. He knew the hamster wheel that I was about to start spinning on all too well, and always made himself available to help the new guy….. Rest easy, man…

Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R):  “Billy, My fellow Texas brother. You lit up every room with your smile. Your quiet intensity onscreen was second only to your gentle kindness and genuine care in private. We recently shared work on an Apple series, and your encouragements during and after that process, and your kindness over the years are now but a few of the things I’ll hold on to as warm memories of you. What a big heart you had. You were bigger and braver and bolder than this life. You were legend. There is no landing to this final cliffhanger, the wings you’ve spent your lifetime earning have carried you up to that wonderful place in the sky. Happy Birthday Billy Miller.”

The Young and the Restless:The daytime community mourns the loss of Billy Miller who graced Y&R with his talent for many years as Billy Abbott. Our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.”

Kathleen Gati: “I am beyond sad to hear this tragic news.#BillyMiller was always so kind, professional and a wonderfully talented colleague  @GeneralHospital Deepest condolences to his family, friends and fans.”

TK Weaver: “Devastated. Hard to find words. You always gave me such good advice. You were always there for me. You were an amazing person. #BillyMiller I’ll never forget you. Please join me in praying for his family and loved ones.”

Greg Rikaart: Generous, passionate, fun, soulful and brilliant Billy. Can you just imagine the reunion between him and Jeanne? I can. Rest well, dear Billy

Sean Kanan: “Shocked and saddened to hear that Billy Miller is no longer with us. He was a terrific actor and always kind when we would see each other. I pray that his family and friends find comfort and peace during this unimaginably difficult time. #BillyMiller #YR”
