GENERAL HOSPITAL: Anna Reveals Faison Is Alive!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Anna (Finola Hughes) is blindsided at her office by her arch-nemesis Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and Agent Sloane (Robb Derringer)!

Yes, Dr O’s blackmail attempts worked once again and this time on her daughter Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who changed her mind and decided to help Agent Sloane nab Anna for her “rogue tactics” with Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) for supposedly killing her father, the notorious Cesar Faison (Anders Hove)!

Agent Sloane, who has come to Commissioner Devane’s office, reveals that Faison isn’t at Steinmauer Maximum Security Prison, and firmly lets her know, no one, including her, is above the law!

After Anna is apparently cornered by Obrecht and Sloane, and after she is handed a a subpoena and is told to get a lawyer, Anna says that none of this is necessary because …  Faison is alive!  And … the episode fades to black!

So, how many of you knew that Faison was truly alive?  Where do you think Anna and Robert put the treacherous man?  Does this mean a return visit to Port Charles for Faison could be on the way … or in the works?  Share your thoughts below!

Not another Faison arc….ugggghh

well, unless Faison grew a few inches, doubt he’s Fluke.
I’m with you on yet another Faison arc though. As much as I love the actor who portrays him, it lacks originality to bring him back over & over & over again!

Faison was wearing lifts in his shoes, because you know it’s all about the base.

This whole “Get Anna Devane ” story is just stupid. She may be the head of the worst police department in TV history but now they paint her as a criminal?!?!?

GH is a criminals paradise, Im really starting to tire of all the violence and fake deaths.

I’m with you, Rob. The Faizon “It’s alive !!!” revelation is no surprise. I think we all sort of suspected that this weirdo just won’t die, as so many others on GH. Could he be Fluke? Is that why he is missing from the dungeon?….or whatever those fallacious catacombs are supposed to be. Or is it that Ashton bloke? Regardless, as you say, This storyline is stupid. Anna is the criminal? The concept is so infantile, perfect child-play. Inasmuch as I am entertained by both Liesl and her ‘soul mate’, all their past and present crimes will be perpetually swept… Read more »

Terming Faison as the “weirdo that just won’t die” is stunningly accurate, CeeCee! I really couldn’t stand that fearsome-faced freak until he was paired with the outrageous Obrecht….together their “Bickersons” act was an absolutely raucous laugh-riot. Hence, if the demented Dane’s return to Port Charles allows Liesl to once again pine for this proverbial perp in person, then it should provoke just as many pleasing departures into the altogether absurd as the first time around. However, I, too, am less than impressed with the notion of “Anna as the criminal,” although since it currently provides a means for Dr. O.… Read more »

Well I knew. Anna wouldn’t do that. I think that’s partly why she’s so unsympathetic to Duke and his claims that his hatred for the Jeromes was enough justification for him to lie for Sonny.

I think their shooting him was to knock him out and he’s with Robert in “Wisconsin” 🙂

Will I hope once Anna revealed what she had done with faison I hope this agent try to nab in for all the criminal acts faison has put Anna through plus crazy liesel, how could GH make Anna criminal when she was the one been violated plus her kid all her life from faison and making him look like he his a victim, that be pour bull if this happen, they better not!!

Never thought Anna and robert killed him, would be too much out of Character. She may have wanted to and he certainly deserved it. He’s in Duke’s Turkish prison cell

Do FrankenRon really think we want to watch Faison return to destroy Anna again. ? They have beat this dead horse one to many times for me. First they turn Anna”s police into the keystone cops again. Carley goes free and WE KNOW Sonny will not be in jail long, and Faison returns. Obrecht wins again. Re-Ron rides again. Wash, rinse and repeat.I am sorry but this is not the GH I had watched for yeeaars.

In your ”we”–
I am a Faison fan and I would love for him to return and have him and anna go at it again..
Anna and Faison are arch enemies, they never die.. their purpose is to face off..
Which one will win is always exciting..

and–
Anna has never been ”destroyed” she is strong and prevails as the heroine she is 🙂

Erick
Guest

su0000 you are so right… Anna and Faison are great. Finola Hughes and Anders Hove have had precious few scenes together, all told. I could watch Hove read the phone book (or listen, I guess) but I much prefer him going at it with her than with Luke as Herr Krieg or whoever.
The problem is they can’t have many scenes together because Anna wants to kill him so badly, although that hasn’t stopped Obrecht from staying in town. So they could solve that problem easily.

I didn’t think they killed Faison off; he’s a fun/crazy villain like Helena. If they start killing everyone off there’ll be nothing left of GH as we knew it. However, they’ve got to come up with something pretty horrendous that they DID do to him…since Robert and Anna insinuated numerous times they had to make sure he was gone once and for all and it was this big, bad, shared secret.

And so Britt’s recurring status begins…

I don’t think anyone thought that Anna and Duke killed Faison..
Really, who would even believe that?? ..

I hope anna gets in serious trouble, it is her turn to be in hot seat..
and- it would be great opportunity for Finola Hughes to shine ..

I don’t want to see her in the hot seat…not after Dr. O (though I do love her!) got off for holding Robin captive, stealing Ben/Rocco and assorted other crimes. Anna is the victim…over and over and over by Faison and Dr. O…I’m rooting for Anna for the win. As for the missing Faison…I must admit I can’t figure out the connection between Jerry, Fluke and Faison. I’d have thought maybe they did the ridiculous and Faison was Fluke…but that would be one mask too many. And, supposedly Robert (did she say Robert?) has been checking sporadically to make sure… Read more »

Of course, Faison is alive. *sigh* I respect all the GH team is doing to keep daytime vital in the yes of corporate boradcasters, and the talent on said team is amazing. Truly!

Still, I can no longer engage in the current run of outlandish tales. It’s just not for me right now. This longtime fan will tune in from time to time to catch my favorites among the actors and enjoy those performances, surely, but I need a good break from the depths of madness in Port Charles.

Obvious that RC is going to make Fake Luke really Faison and here is the kicker Ander Hover/Faison is 5 ft 9 TG is 6ft 1. So using a mask or plastic surgery is just blatantly stupid.

I prefer good storytelling to all of the madness lately. A little madness is okay, but lately it’s gotten a bit overwhelming. Reminds me of all the effects studios are now jamming into movies because they either don’t know how to tell a good story anymore, or don’t trust a good story to hold an audience’s interest or build box office anymore. Especially with the younger demo they are looking for.

I hope Anders Hove comes back as Faison. Faison is creepy, funny and wonderful to watch. He is a terrific actor.

After forty plus years of watching soaps I stopped believing anyone is truly dead on a soap a long time ago– they could have shot him with a thousand bullets, blown him up to kingdom come, or put him in a bat of boiling acid– and I wouldn’t believed he was dead— so no this is no shock to me—the only mystery is where and what did they did to him— in my fantasies he would have been stranded on a island with hundreds of Dr. O androids tormenting him day and night a la Star Trek’s I Mudd episode… Read more »

Never saw the Star Trek you’re referring to but your visual alone is hilarious. I’m hoping the never say dead applies to Sean Kanan/AJ one day…

Mary SF
Guest

I don’t know about SK coming back, but if AJ was still alive it would solve most of Sonny’s problems if the man he “murdered” wasn’t dead— so I wouldn’t put it out of the realm of possibility as the means the writers will use to get Sonny out of jail.

LOL ,,
the ”Mudd” episode, was great!! Faison would far well, no doubt!

soap people do not die, never..
They can be cremated and yet live..
It is not about just bringing them back, it is the journey of how they do it..
It is the story that raises the dead and the twists and turns that brings them back that is genius….
and that is what it is about, the resurrection journey !
I’m a fan of raising the dead… great stories!!

However some do stay dead if they passed in real life, if not they are not dead just absent ..

I did think that Anna might have reached a breaking point with Faison after years of torture, and had actually killed him. It would have been a stretch for Anna to have done so, and if she is telling the truth that he is alive, I am happy that her core principles prevailed. I think Anders Hove is a great actor. Loved him as Beetlejuice, but I’m not aching to see him back creating havoc for Anna just yet.

Jimmy
Guest

I knew they wouldn’t kill Faison off. He’s one of GH’s best and purely evil villains, I knew they would bring him back eventually. I think he’s also in cahoots with Helena and Jerry, and might be responsible for holding Robin captive again.

What would have been a great comeback for him is if, when Robin and Jason were escaping Creighton-Clark, Faison walked through the door instead of Helena. That would have been awesome.

Ok… first I love my GH… and I get we have to “expand our minds a bit” as viewers but to have to believe that Anna and Robert has Faison in a dungeon in the floor of a barn is absolutely ridiculous… like they left him in the Cassadine barn? What now the servants have to feed and bathe this prisoner? WHHATTT? LOL….

Dan
Guest

Anything that potentially brings Anders Hove as Faison back to GH is a positive to me. He’s one of the best villains in soap opera history, and the good ones never die. So I knew he was never really dead. The battles between Anna and Faison are timeless. It’s just a shame that Robert is still stuck in “Wisconsin” and won’t be able to join in on whatever the next adventures might be. I’d love to see Faison get involved with Helena Cassadine and Jerry Jacks again, the possibilities are endless!

Carlee

All I have to say is as usual Tristan Rogers is sorely missed here. TPTB screwed up in not securing him long term. With that being said, most likely they stashed him locally, Catacombs most likely. But no doubt when they get there he’s gone, but will resurface soon. Hopefully when TR can return, both Anna and Robert will kill him in self defense and will end the nightmare he has brought upon their lives.

I didn’t think Anna and Robin had killed Faison, but I DID think this was going to be a long, drawn-out story in which this agent tried to pin murder on Anna and we were “treated” to weeks or months of Anna being tormented, her reputation attacked/assassinated, etc. I am glad we were spared that. I did think the scene in which Anna taunted Liesl by pretending to be Faison in an Anna mask was hilarious—but other than that, this storyline has been a total bust in my book. So this agent found a file belonging to Victor saying Anna… Read more »

I think this is a fantastic story. Finola Hughes is getting in some brilliant performances and a lot more air time ~ something everyone was clamoring for, BTW. I find nothing wrong with bringing Faison in and out of the story line as need dictates. Andres Hove is a great actor and plays to history with Finola’s character. Ron and Frank have continued to draw from the show’s history; this is certainly a continuation of that. Like I said, I think this story ~ in fact, all of them ~ are firing on all cylinders. GH has me sitting on… Read more »

I agree, Rod. It’s always fun, if nothing else. And having these familiar faces still part of daytime…which is a clock-ticking bomb waiting to explode…is what fans of soaps need to keep in mind. One day the genre will be put in a historic time capsule for future generations who will view soaps like we view silent movies…as an interesting bygone era….

I complain lovingly, as I’ve finally learned how to read the current writers. I’m pretty much used to them now. I don’t love all the villains on the show at the same time, but I don’t totally hate them, but if they’re going to be there it must be RC writing them. I also like the way he writes The Q’s. I’ve always felt his style would fit great in that mansion & it seems to be working great. Finally some airtime for Monica! It’s a fun show. They excel at cliff-hangers, and shocking twists & they do them constantly,… Read more »

Im starting to think that Faison, Jerry Jax, and Helena were cats in a past life although I think they are all individually past 9 already. Even though I just want to slap her, I find Nina and franco to actually be a breath of fresh air. Am I the only one who feels that bringing back those three over and over and over again is getting really old, really fast?

For whatever reason viewers never want to accept that someone died. Being surrounded by Jimmy Deshler fans that wanted to bring him back and being convinced that if they tweeted to Frank and Ron enough if would happen, was just crazy. Although I did not mind Jimmy, I can’t say that I miss him on the show. The viewers didn’t know how or where to take his story, so they just killed him off. He could of admitted to having a drug problem and then he could of went off to rehab, until more story in their eyes opened up.… Read more »

General Hospital

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
