GENERAL HOSPITAL Delivers One-Two Punch with Robin's Return & The Truth About Dante & Lulu's Baby!



Over the past few days General Hospital has delivered a feast for its fans where several long standing stories have exploded wide open!  The Monday and Tuesday GH offered up so much, but top on the list was the return of Kimberly McCullough and the whereabouts of the believed-to-be-dead Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake!  Plus, the long awaited reveal that Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) baby is really the biological daughter of Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Spinelli’s (Bradford Anderson), and that the couple has been duped by Maxie for months!

Here is how it all came about: when dying Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) meets up with the heinous Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roche) on Cassadine Island, we come to find out that Jerry also needs the cure from the toxin he used to poison Port Charles, and his connection to Faison and Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).   It seems Dr O  found a doctor to make the cure, but there is only enough to save one person, and that is going to be him!  Next, Jerry enters the highly top secret area of the Cassadine compound where lo and behold there is Robin alive and working on the cure!  Jerry really ramps up what he thinks is an incentive for Robin to work faster to find the cure, when she shows her a DVD from the Nurses Ball.  In a heartbreaking moment played beautifully by Kimberly McCullough, she sees Patrick (Jason Thompson), Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) and oh yes, Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) for the first time and vows she will find her way back to them.

Additional wallop to this story was played in masterful scenes featuring Jason Thompson and Finola Hughes (Anna) where Patrick admits to Anna that he is still wearing his wedding ring because a part of him believes Robin is still out there somewhere, although illogical.   Anna does her best through her own pain of missing her daughter to tell Patrick to move on with his life, or he will lose Sabrina.  Later, Anna meets with Duke (Ian Buchanan)  heartbroken.  She admits she has been thinking about Robin and can’t let her go.  And that she feels like a hypocrite for telling Patrick to take off his wedding ring and move on, because she feels Robin is still alive somewhere too!  Patrick in emotional moment, finally takes off his wedding ring after admitting to Sabrina it’s just not fair to her.  He says he will always love Robin, but he is ready to move on with her.


Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) comes to the christening of baby Connie to do the right thing and tells Dante and Lulu that their baby is really the bio-daughter of Maxie and Spinelli and then leaves!  While Maxie and Spinelli try to deny  it, Dante won’t let it go so easy and is beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle together, and so is Lulu!  Next, Dante and Lulu unleashed their frustration, heartache, and their betrayal all over Maxie, as Maxie hones up the story of her miscarriage and getting pregnant by Spinelli!  Maxie tries to explain she was giving the couple her baby, but Dante says kids are not interchangeable.  However, no matter how much Maxie protests, and after Lulu slaps her, it’s apparent the couples wil be at war and their friendship is over.   Dante and Lulu leave the scene leaving a shattered Maxie in the arms of Spinelli!  Kudos to the performances of Emme Rylan, Dominic Zamprogna, Kirsten Storms and Bradford Anderson!

And if that wasn’t enough? Dr. Obrecht came back to see her daughter Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), then knocked her out, and kidnapped her baby, Ben!  What is Dr. O going to do with Ben?  Is she going to use the boy on Robin?  Is there some other masterplan?

So, what did you think about the way Lulu and Maxie tore into Maxie?  What did you think about how GH weaved in the return of Robin to the existing storyline?  Let us know your thoughts on how the key storypoints played out?  Did you think the one-two punch of the first two episodes this week were great soap opera?  Comment below!

    What actually surprised me about these episodes, since we knew Robin was coming back and that Jerry had her, was that Jerry was the anonymous benefactor for the Nurses’ Ball! Great writing to soften the villain’s sharp edges.

      I was surprised that Jerry Jax was the benefactor of the Nurse’s Ball, too!

    LOL !


    Mutter…. (Dr. O) to Britt

    “you should have been happy to hear my voice….

    LOL…. yikes…

    and… this is, after, Britt walks in on her mother… holding Ben

    she’s a keeper…. aren’t they all.

    GH… it’s time to listen…. KEEP KEEP KEEP

      My favorite Dr. O moment was upon learning the baby’s name she said

      “Ben, that is what you call a rat.”

      That was hilarious, if you understood the reference.

        Our favorite fierce, fabulous fraulein, that “mother of all glammutters,”Dr. O.” has been pure perfection since her much-anticipated arrival in PC (and subsequent “Schnitzel” snatching)… Absolutely adored her acerbic, acidic “Ben-slamming” of Babymama Britta’s choice of name, not to mention her absurdly amusing aside to an angered Jerry that she had “liberated” her little “Cesar”….it was high-camp hilarity, indeed, as she proudly presented her precious progeny in his prince-worthy pram: positively priceless! Seamlessly securing her sublimely sinister scheme (while still showing her softer side) made today’s Obrecht sighting a stunning scene….especially as the shady scientista began to spin her sordid story of Cesar’s conception to Robin…she even eventually expressed admiration for and acknowledged her daughter’s striking beautyl!!!! (At last!….Absolutely appreciated her snippy slam to Sappy, too!!!) However, on a less approving note…an O.-worthy diss to ABC for suddenly breaking the bliss with yet another of their rude intrusions…alas, that is all I saw of the divine and devious doctor in my time zone. The last ten minutes or so of the program were pre-empted….thus, I am presently perusing the online synopses to see what sarcastic specifics I missed….anyone???? That being said, still wanting and wishing for that long-awaited musical encore ala lullaby by the “Great Gati!” P.S. @Patrick: KEEP, KEEP, KEEP!!!!! I second that motion!!!!!! : )

        October 6, 2013 at 12:29 am

        she even eventually expressed admiration for and acknowledged her daughter’s striking beautyl!!!!

        which is further acknowledgment… Britt is becoming a prodigy

        a thwart on her own

        she’s captivating an audience that rears… reals… it’s head in unison… LOL we should


        be damned

        it’s “on” sometimes… and it squirts and doesn’t hurt…

        LOL Britt and Nicholas are islanding it and you can watch if you want

        OK and you had me laughing @

        I am presently perusing the online synopses to see what sarcastic specifics I missed….

        you know… when Britt declared; she was done….. getting hit
        and you saw her eyes speak for her… Dr. O… it was riveting and riveting stuff to watch new scenerie… such as… ‘newbies” take up screen time that’s worth it.

        this is culminating in the reverie that is: these two gals : can act


        so… i’ts take them when I get them

        lovely ladies

    I feel like what Maxie did was selfless. She gave up her happiness for Lulu’s. That should mean something. Lante is annoying me. And the way they’ve treated Maxie since the baby was born hasn’t helped either. I hope Maxie gets her baby back soon. Also, I’m so happy to see Robin.

      I think Maxie definitely had good intentions, but went about it the wrong way. Lulu was right; she should’ve told them about the miscarriage so they could’ve mourned the death of their real baby.

    great episode I always love seeing J Jacks. He never disappoints. it was nice seeing robin again. Finallly the secret is out, of course Shrewlu was like a bitch. I hope Spixie gets her baby back. thanks Ron

    October 2, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    Ha…i predicted Dr.O would kidnap the baby…i hope the baby is actually Patrick and Robins…then if Anna catches Dr.O she can bargain the baby in exchange for her freedom or to keep Robin from escaping…Jerry Jacks,…imo…looks like Gordon Ramsey…Maxi shouldve slapped Lulu who i believe will run off with baby Connie and spent time in a mental hospital…hope Ben isnt hers…Luke needs Laura in this adventure…Genie Francis sorely wasted as was Kin Shriner…both returns pointless…hope that changes!!!

      I have ALWAYS saw the facial similarities between Sebastian Roche and Gordon Ramsey! They have such a close resemblance….and the accent helps too.

      I’d also love it if that baby really were my second Scrubslet, but alas, I don’t think TPTB will be THAT generous to me.

      • Shay

        October 8, 2013 at 1:41 am

        Love the Roche-Ramsey (physical) comparison, although I cannot imagine the suave, erudite Sebastian going off on a Gordon-style expletive-laden rant… me such a display indicates a lack of intelligence, not to mention class, and Mr. Roche seems to possess both of those admirable qualities in spades!!!!

    Unfortunately, I feel nothing for Lulu due to the new actress playing this part. I cannot connect with her. On the other hand, I am loving the performances of KS, BA, and DZ.

    • Jules

      October 2, 2013 at 4:53 pm

      I youtubed the clips of this reveal, and having watched not a millisecond of this secret prior to yesterday, I have to agree with you too. I like Emme, I do. I thought her choice for replacement was inspired. I haven’t seen what she’s brought to the role, but I really felt she could and maybe was working. And yet, I have to agree. I felt completely disconnected from her character, and not because of the storyline. I felt it with KS and DZ but ER’s performance didn’t seem grounded enough. It just didn’t feel genuine in the way a satisfying reveal should feel.

    • Patrick

      October 3, 2013 at 11:32 am

      1. one can’t help but not feel for the two pair – Dante/Lulu & Maxie/Spinelli.

      that being said….

      i think across the board… it wasn’t fairly well acted… save for Maxie.

      the scene in the church…. just wasn’t ON…. no spark… no believability

      it wasn’t just Emme’ – altho… of the 3 in question… she needs to mother up.. or something.

      Spinelli was too quiet… which isn’t like him… to stand their.. and NOT speak his mind.

      Dante wasn’t feeling it either… I don’t know.. It crossed my mind.. that perhaps he, the actor.. like JT-Patrick… isn’t chemistry’ing with his new partner.

      I don’t know…

      however… it was still a 3-4 hankie days… in Port Charles

      1. Patrick and Anna bar none… are always on target with theirs lives with and without Robin

      2. Maxie… at least I think… she’s on the cusp of adulthood… crossing over in to life outside of just Maxie

      3. Britt’ baby kidnapped… yikes! good on JimH… I didn’t expect that… what is Mutter going to do with that baby? geez! it’s her daughters… at least I want to think that… this one really had me hanky’ing

      4. and… just seeing Robin… and her seeing Emma

      altho.. I don’t know that it was a good idea.. that jerry jax showed Robin… Sabrina

      I had hoped for a more tumultuous, fallout, reveal… between Robin and Patrick… that they both face each other… and all that’s happened in their lives.. be revealed face to face… in person…

      3-4 hanky day

        Patrick Emme Rylan is good playing the spoiled little rich girl Lizzie Spaulding and Abby Newman but she just does not fit this part. I think they may have jumped the gun with recasting this role. What few times I have watched since she took over I just keep wondering who is the stranger in the room.

    We are not waiting a year or more for something to happen to move it along or end it.
    GH is half soap and half Telenovela ..
    The Telenovela is fast paced drama filled soaps, and GH is going that way of Telenovela
    LOVE IT!!

    Start a story and move it along/end it and start something new, love it!!

    I loved all of yesterday’s episode but especially Robin. I also love how she is not afraid of Jerry as she showed when she spit in his face!

    And it keeps better cause Robert, her daddy wakes up in 2 days! GH is red hot right now!

    Oh and I hear Stephen Nichols is returning in November as Stefan Cassadine! Take that DOOL for firing him and disrespecting all your vets!

        no but I heard GH is going to bring on a teenage girl as Stefan’s daughter! Wonder who her mommy is if this is true?

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      October 3, 2013 at 10:42 am

      I hope if Stephan had a daughter…he had an affair with Dr.O who is the girls mutter which would make her Britts younger half sister…

    Two great episodes!!! I really did not like how Dante and LuLu laid into Maxie and basically cut her out of their lives. It was an unfortunate… even untenable situation that Maxie created… but she did it for them. It has been the hardest thing she has done… and Spinelli’s to give up their child… but Maxie and Spinelli did it because they did not want to hurt LuLu and Dante!!! My heart went out to Maxie and Spinelli. I understand RC and FV were going for high and huge drama… but I thought it was too severe and too hurtful. I understand their pain… but I understand Maxie and Spinell’s more. I only hope that this might bring Maxie and Spinelli together to share their loss of their daughter and their friends and the ability to be in their daughter’s life as god parents. Both episodes were jam packed and well done!

    I love that Robin is back and I am glad she got to see the DVD of the Nurse’s Ball. My heart is going out to Luke and hope that he gets to Robin.

    Well done everyone at GH!!! You continue to be on fire with the best soap!!! Can’t wait for the next episode!!!

      I really did not like how Dante and LuLu laid into Maxie

      I too… thought it was overwrought…

      altho… I was impressed with watching Maxie

      like she was the Maxie of old… it’s all about Maxie… however.. young and outlandish she is…

      and.. watching the Maxie… on the cusp of realizing there is a life that she is a part of and needs her…

      it was heartwrenching.. when she spoke to Spinelli and even Anna… about abandonment…

      ie: no frisco and felicia….

      that she would sacrifice her child…..

      watching Kirsten Storms’ Maxie grow and mature is going to be FUN

      have to agree…. “well done everyone at GH”

        Frisco, Frisco, Frisco….WTF(risco?) Today’s big (and repeated) mention of the man was either a huge foreshadowing of his much desired return or a major slam to the actor and his legion of fans who are still fuming about his much-abbreviated appearance and insulting send-off earlier this year. Was particularly put-off by the passionate p*$$yfit of his ex-wife!!!! Classy it was NOT!!!! At least “Maxinista” saved the day with her mature reaction….you go, Girl! (And get that baby back….)

        I have to say KIrsten is knocking it out of the park with her powerful performances as Maxie!!! Maxie is and always will be one of my favorite characters and Kirsten’s heart wrenching portrayl is sheer perfection!!! Let’s hope we get to see some happiness for Maxie very soon!!! Well done Kirsten!!!

    I am glad the baby secret came out but wasn’t impressed that is was Brad to spill the beans– thought that was lame. He said he was doing the right thing, but all he was doing was telling a secret that wasn’t his to tell. Why doesn’t come clean that he isn’t bio daddy to Britt’s baby that would score him more points with Felix than ratting out Maxie.

    I am still confused and no one’s explained to me yet, how it was possible for Maxie to miscarry and get pregnant in the same night? Aren’t surrogates pumped with hormones to suppress their natural cycles, so they don’t get pregnant while carrying another’s baby? How did she ovulate and have an egg available if she carrying Lulu’s and Dante’s baby? If anyone has a plausible answer to explain how it is possible to miscarry and get pregnant on the same night, please let me know it?

    • Boheme

      October 2, 2013 at 10:13 pm

      Mary the only thing I do know for sure is that it is plausible, based on the fact that women are extremely ripe/fertile for pregnancy right after they give birth, and the same applies to someone who stops taking their birth control pills and has (unprotected)sex

    • su0000

      October 2, 2013 at 11:43 pm

      I will ”explain” it to;
      It is soap opera, a soap opera is to entertain us with BS make believe fantasy..
      A soap is not a documentary on anything, just made up stories to entertain us..
      IF, you over think the stories you destroy the cornerstone of a soap opera; entertainment fantasy..
      Everybody knows soaps are far out BS, don’t try to find logic, just enjoy the stories “)

      • Mary SF

        October 3, 2013 at 12:29 pm

        You’re right– it makes great drama although not sure it is possible, but a lot stuff happens on soaps that aren’t really possible– LOL. Thanks for reminding me it is the story that counts. I guess part of me was hoping that Maxie never miscarried Dante’s and Lulu’s baby, so if it wasn’t possible to get pregnant on the same night she miscarried maybe that meant she never really miscarried– or it meant Maxie was never really pregnant in the first place, and Britt implanted that egg in herself, gave something to Maxie that would mimic a miscarriage, as a way to cover the theft of the egg.

    A bit of topic but has realized that Carlos Rivera is probably LiLy’s brother … her last name was Rivera. Her father was in the mob. Carlos works for the mob and not only is it the mob, it is for a family that wants to destroy Sonny Corinthos! On top of that Sabrina’s cousin is Juan Santiago who is Lyli’s son with Living la vida loca Miguel lol ! For sure Carlos Rivera is in Port Charles to get back at Sonny and that is why he is working for Julian Jerome. God i love Gh

    • dmr

      October 3, 2013 at 9:03 am

      I thought the same thing; that Carlos was definitely related to Lily somehow. Another one that will try to enact revenge on Sonny, for the car bomb was meant for Sonny, not Lily.

    • Boheme

      October 6, 2013 at 2:35 pm

      Wow I forgot Lily’s last name was Rivera and didn’t make that connection to Carlos. Nor did I know that Sabrina had a cousin Juan Santiago who is Lily’s son. Thanks for that information and yes the writers are creating a magnificent web . Great pick-up GhLover, from another long standing G H Lover

    • Johnny

      October 6, 2013 at 9:27 pm

      Tangled web indeed. I am usually very savvy but I didn’t even make that connection. LOL. Maybe it’s because I HATE mob stories and suddenly it seemed like the show was being overrun once again by mobsters and molls. I loathe the character of Sonny so anyone who comes along to take him down is in my good books.

      My question is…why does Sabrina’s accent only appear when she says the words CARLOS, RIVERA, and PUERTO RICO? She rolls her r’s almost stereotypically on those words. LOL. There was a Saturday Night Live skit many years ago like that where a bunch of white people in an office did that with all their r’s, while the only Puerto Rican in the office didn’t even have an a ccent. That’s what it reminds me of. It is annoying and distracting. I wonder if her accent will pop out when Rrrrobin comes back. LOL.

    October 2, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    The scenes of the baby reveal should have left one feeling eviscerated, torn from top to bottom, but with this young woman in the part of L, it felt like nothing more than a flesh wound, a graze if you will. The words were all there, the writing for the scenes from Kate Hall was top notch. And yet, I was again disappointed that given another chance, she just hasn’t delivered. There didn’t seem to be an ability to vary her volume which stayed basically the same from start to finish.Her facial expression also didn’t seem to change with each passing line of dialogue. I was wanting to hear different levels and layers of hurt and heartbreak, grieff ,that a trust hard won was now broken, possibly never to be repaired. I’ve sincerely tried not to compare her work to Julie Marie Berman, but having seen the “dream reveal” from March with Kirsten Storms, there was in that clip, for me, this sense of being drained by both women, seeing L’s initial fury and anger seguing into her complete devastation, the guilt and embarassment from Maxie, knowing that she couldn’t take back what she’d done. Maybe I’m expecting too much. On the other hand, Dominic Zamprogna has gone above and beyond and for his being blindsided by the truth was the emotional gut punch that I was “rewarded” with. Excellent work there. Bradford Anderson and Miss Storms, seemed to be holding back a bit, letting the other two have the floor, so to speak. That didn’t necessarily lessen their contribution to these scenes, but there seemed to be something off balance. Maybe RC was aiming for Lante to gain the upper hand in the sympathy tally. At this point, I’m thinking he didn’t succeed. But that’s me…

      Well, I loved Duke and Anna back in the day…they were a hot super couple then, and even though I was thrilled when it was discovered that he was alive and truly enjoyed his reunion with Ms. Devane, their romance since then has just sort of died. Dare I say that they now seem mismatched???? Forgive me, but Mr. Lavery seems so old compared to the lovely and glowing Anna….I really think she needs a younger man…however, NOT one in the “Ava Jerome Younger” category! Maybe just someone less dour and more contemporary? Have always felt she would have made a good pairing with Frisco (Oh yeah….since we repeatedly heard about him today, how about an encore for Jack Wagner, please?) Another good prospect for her was Noah Drake….I thought that the brief fling Anna had with him was fun, since Rick Springfield (despite his actual age….) also belongs to that same healthy and fit-club of which Finola Hughes obviously is a member…they both give off such a youthful vibe….and the family tie with their offspring also made their coupling quite charming. (While we’re speaking of RS, could we have a return visit from the foxy doc, too???? Without “Plastic Fantastic Bobbie” in tow though…..) At any rate, as much as I adore Robert, I just don’t picture him reunited with his ex-wife….at least not for a long time. But welcome back, Scorpio….you have been missed!!!!

  20. Boheme

    October 3, 2013 at 12:15 am

    I sympathize with both couples and their respective families re the reveal of the true bio of baby Connie but didn’t like how Dante and Lulu tore into Maxi, especially Lulu. Lulu supposedly knows Maxi inside and out, which would make her more understanding of why her truest friend lied-(albeit shouldn’t have, but making bad choices are historically Maxi’s mo),just to unselfishly sacrifice her own happiness/child for her most cherished friend’s wish fulfillment- it was even harder to take because I have ambivalent feelings about the new Lulu. Spinelli was too annoyingly passive in light of how Lulu bashed Maxi- He should have been more protective of her-and I didn’t like that Brad spilled the beans either.
    IMO the exposition was too dragged out , and I know the story line is far from over. I have a feeling Lulu is going to run away with the baby, if faced with having to give her back to Maxi and I am of the opinion that the Britch’s son belongs to Dante and Lulu. I do wonder if Kirsten is going to take maternity leave and how it will be used in this story-line.
    And is it just me, or wasn’t Olivia’s response upon hearing the word Jackal connecting the animal in her vision to Spinelli , kind of a weak, throwaway-
    I wonder why she never googled her description of the “wolf that wasn’t” to quickly find the answer to that mystery that so gnawed at her brain for months and months and months.

    Robert Scorpio is back, that’s the best part of this whole story for me. Why they don’t keep him permanently is beyond me. One of the best characters (in my opinion the best character) this show ever had.

      I agree; love Robert! Not sure it is the actor or the show. If it’s the money, let’s get rid of some of the newbies or non-contract players. I vote to ship Kristen Alderson back to Llanview, take nuMorgan with her!

    It’s a good start just hope it doesnt take another year to get robin home. the thing that aggravates me is GH has an exciting day then follows up with a show that puts u to sleep. who wants to watch a drawn out episode like oct.2nd boring! Lulu and Dante had a point but how much more unselfish can u be than give up your own baby to make your best friend happy I wouldn’t do it especially the way lulu was acting toward Maxi after she almost died giving birth how cold can u get. I cant stand this Lulu. What a performance for dominic [Dante] he seems so for real great job!

    I had thought that this business with Maxie miscarrying, then getting impregnated the same night, was beyond ridiculous; however, the scenes between Maxie and nuLulu were beyond amazing, well-acted by both actresses. I think this was the first time that I accepted nuLulu. It seems as though the new actress made this part her own, in these scenes.

    I posted earlier about my take on the baby story-line but forgot to give my opinion about the return of Robin, so here goes. I have loved Kim’s Robin since she was first painted onto the GH canvas. The character’s integrity has been pretty much left intact throughout the years with a few exceptions e.g. I don’t think Robin would have entertained the thought to leave Emma motherless even if it meant saving her beloved Jason. I am so happy to have her come back for many reasons, especially to end the suffering her supposed death has caused Anna, Patrick and Emma. Whether or not Robin’s return was always in the works, it’s a great bit of writing keeping Robin alive through the hearts and minds of those who love her- they could still feel her, psychically. I am not a fan of Sabrina/Theresa ,have never understood that casting choice to play against Jason Thompson/Patrick (who I think is one of the best looking men and actors in soaps and the most under-rated) certainly have never see, any chemistry between them- but the casting department could have done better in their choice for Sabrina’s ex boyfriend. The actor kind of put me off from his very first appearance. Even though I don’t care for Sabrina, she isn’t written as a Florence Nightingale with a dark past ,and certainly not as one who would be in a long-term relationship with this Garrrrlos whose first impression was that of a degenerated, hard looking,scruffy guy whose could use a bath kind (who shouldn’t take his shirt off). Definitely not one I would imagine to be the boyfriend of an even younger Sabrina. It also ticked me off that Felix who is supposed to be looking out for his best friend, and so street-smart with practically x-ray vision (pun intended) to see through people up to no good, was written so gullible- taken in by a total stranger who claims to a friend of Sabrina’s, taking him to where she works and giving out Patrick’s address without contention- without checking with Patrick or Sabrina first about making known such personal information.

    I can’t stand LULU . The way she treated Maxie. I think she layed into her too hard. And Dante to. Maxie was willing to give up her baby . Maxie sacrificed a lot by keeping a secret. I feel sorry for Maxie.. She kept everything bottled up inside. I want her to get her baby back. Mack & Felicia were so supportive of Maxie when she told them the truth about Connie being her baby and Spinell’s. They didn’t chew her head off like LULU & Dante did..LULU seems like she wants to keep the baby anyway even though she knows now that it isn’t hers. Tired of LuLu’s winning how Maxie lied to her and Dante. Happy to see Robin! And what happen to Luke he was talking to Jerry Jaxs & then Jerry went back in the secret room where Robin is. Where did Luke go after his conversation with Jerry?

    I have a question, At one point wasn’t Duke also held by Faison, and didn’t Duke know that Robin was alive.????????

      There was a scene when Duke walk into Robin’s hospital room, but it turned out to be Faison wearing his Duke mask– on his way to PC to impersonate him and get Anna. I don’t believe the real Duke ever saw Robin there.

  28. JOANN

    October 3, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    if so, Anna is going tor really HURT him, for not telling her Robin was alive, just saying. Because Duke look a little weird when Anna told him, she felt Robin was alive somewhere.

    Loving the story now, moving at a quicker pace. Want Maxie and Spinelli to get their baby back,. Britt should come clean about Ben being Dantes baby. Patrick should have followed his gut and kept his ring on, for he too felt that Robin was out there somewhere. I am glad Robert is awake.

    So happy to see Robert Scorpio on Fri. And Dr.O said even if Robert came out of the coma that he wouldn’t remember anything. WRONG! He remembers seeing Robin & every thing else. Dr. O saying that Britt’s baby is Patrick’s but we all know she is not telling the truth.. Robin hit Dr.O over the head with a glass bottle and attempted to escape. But in the coming attractions Jerry stops her from escaping. I hope she gets away some how from Jerry… Will Robin find the cure? In time to save Luke which is being captive by Jerry..But Robin doesn’t know that…I can’t wait for Robin to be reunited with Patrick and Emma. And then it looks like Sabrina will be out of the picture. Patrick still loves Robin very much and that never will stop.. I think Patrick will drop Sabrina for Robin for sure….

    I think when they find Britts baby they should do a DNA test t make sure it’s him and the DNA test come out to be Dante and lulus

    My complaint about Dante and LuLu is their hypocracy. They only wanted “their” baby, so they turned on Maxie. Now, they want to take Maxie and Spinellies baby from them. They complained, yet they want a baby that they know isn’t theirs, and was never agreed to be theirs. Maxie, thinking it was the only way to not hurt LuLu and Dante, mistakenly took things too far, but it is her baby as her mother said.
    I have wondered who Ben’s real father is, and I don’t think it is Brad. Is it even Britt’s baby? I am glad Britt finally has a real friend. I love Nicholas. Britt did a lot of horrible things, but I truely think she did a lot at her mother’s demands required. Her parents never loved her, and what was normal for her is what most people would find appalling. I even find myself liking her, as she is now.
    While I am at it, I think the relationship between Nick and Elizabeth was messed up by her ignorance. How could anyone want a known jerk/Narcissistic character over Nick..

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
