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!

SPOILER MUCH?

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!!!

Shay
Guest

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????

heidi
Guest
heidi

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!

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!!

LOVE SONNY !!!!

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… Read more »

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!!!

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
