GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Is Heartbroken As Robin Informs Her She Is Leaving Port Charles!

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Robin finally told her mother, Anna that she is leaving Port Charles.  And that set the stage for the final goodbye scene … for now … between the remarkable on-screen mother/daughter duo played by Finola Hughes  (Anna) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin).

And while many in the audience are having a difficult time swallowing Robin’s exit storyline with good reason, Anna asked the questions anyone would have about Robin’s decision to depart her home, especially since she just got back after two years of being tortured:  “What about Emma, Patrick, and me?” asked Anna.  Robin stands by her decision.  She asks her mother to trust her that this is something she just has to do.

However, that being said, we couldn’t help but marvel at the beautiful performance by Finola Hughes, whose sadness and heartbreak registered throughout Anna’s face, body, and soul.  She once again had to say goodbye to Robin.  And once again to drive home the emotional throughline of the situation, Robin tells Anna she always finds her way back to her. Cue the always classic and moving clip of little Robin running into the arms of Anna, after her kidnapping as a child.

So, what do you think of the scene and the performances by Finola Hughes and Kimberly McCullough?  Did you reach for the hankies?  Or, were you just so mad at the story that you couldn’t go there?  After the jump, watch a clip of the final moments of the scene between Robin and Anna. Then, share your thoughts below!

It was everything you would expect from these actresses…the fact that they have actually been connected by story all these years made this good-bye even more poignant.

I think they should have killed her off. Let Patrick move on. He had good story and then they bring back her. Long time fans are more invested in her than I am.

Robin was killed off, first time around..
KMc wanted to be killed off, she had no intentions of returning..
RC stupidly kept her alive when her fans became upset that poor Robin was killed (even tho she wanted it..
So– this time around Robin should have been killed off not be be brought brought back, ever again..

I think Carlivati/Valentini decided–wisely–that there had been enough killing off of legacy characters and that Robin was worth saving. And I say that even though I think the storyline contrivances have just been awful; I hated the dragged-out Robin-in-captivity storyline, and I think this exit story is incredibly dumb and lacks believability. But I’m still glad we didn’t lose yet another character with ties and history.

I still think Robin shouldve left for another country to help solve and cure a mysterious illness that has sicken thousands including Robert Scorpio…it would have made a little more sense imo, and lot more acceptable to Patrick and Anna…lets also not forget Robins parents werent always around for her when she was a child!

I agree. The idea that Robin is leaving her daughter to grow up without her mother so her mobster friend’s son doesn’t have to grow up without a father that he would be watching kill people for a living and get shot at daily is ridiculous.

I have to agree that just about any storyline that involved Robert in some kind of peril, with Robin making the agonizing sacrifice to leave to try to save him, would have been so much more believable than Robin leaving to “save” Jason. And it’s such a natural follow-on from the fact that Tristan Rogers is on another show and unavailable. But I guess it would also have left Patrick in limbo again, which is a problem if you’re trying to keep him in some kind of viable storyline. You can’t divorce your wife who has gone off to save… Read more »

I hope they leave the status of Patrick and Robin’s marriage up the in air for the time being….first for the sake of the family, but also so that Dr. Drake remains officially unavailable in the near future to you-know-who…thus she will rate no more than a former mistress with a baby on the way.

Finola Hughes’ performance is always superb in emotional scenes. But, I just don’t buy Robin’s reasons. It is out of character and she would not leave Emma even for Jason after being away for so long.

The powers that be had to do what they had to do. Kimberly choose to leave, because she has other career goals to conquer. If they killed Robin off again, we would have been upset. If they had Patrick choose Sabrina, we wouldn’t have liked that. So, they chose something that is totally Robin. To sacrifice her happiness for someone she loves. I wish much success to Kimberly and hope to see her on GH again in the future.

Robins parents always left to save the world. Not a killer for hire borg,already dead above the eyes. FrankenRon ,will NOT make me hate Kim for leaving only them . She bent over backwards to do what they asked and they sent her to bring back to life three degenerates. killers and complete nuts. Finola and Kim are two actresses who showed what soaps can do if they would actually watch. What do they give us, mobs and molls and stories that make you shake your head at the stupidity of it.I haven’t watched this mess in a while. The… Read more »

The actresses are simply fabulous!! They make the best out of a terrible storyline and Jason Thompson is no slouch himself!! Kudos to Kim, Finola., and Jason for making this all work to the best of their abilities!! It’s their talents that keep me watching! I can’t think of a more talented daytime cast!

Finola was perfect, she gets me every time. But at the same time did anyone else feel like Anna telling Robin not to leave was a bit hypocritical? I’ve only been watching the past few years so I don’t have all the history. But from what I understand wasn’t Anna not around when Robin was growing up, that’s why she is so close to Mac right…? So I did like that they had Anna support her in the end.

With these 2 people its always very real. So very good. The scene should have been much longer. A chance to build, they both deserved more, so good….the flashback its become a bit over-used.

Kimberly’s return to the show was stunt casting. Unfortunately Ron Carlivati has no idea how to write characters in the long-term, and this is what we get. He would introduce characters on OLTL, have zero idea where to go with them, then the characters would get axed. Sure, the ratings have gone up, but by this time next year or 18 months, they’ll be talking cancelation rumors again. Ron has dropped more balls on storylines than Captain Kangaroo dropped ping-pong balls.

I so love Anna and her beloved daughter Robin, and if anyone should understand the ‘angst ‘ Robin is going through in leaving her daughter to save a beloved friend it would be her mom… the scenes between Anna and her daughter were right on.. it is an emotional time and a time that even if we disagree…. we are happy that soon they will be together again. Sigh…

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.
