GENERAL HOSPITAL: Emma Returns To Visit Anna and Meets Griffin!

In a nice surprise for many GH fans, Daytime Emmy nominee Brooklyn Rae Silzer  (Emma) appeared on Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

While it had been revealed that Emma would make a return visit to GH during an upcoming episode, yesterday proved to be the day.  On her spring break from school, Emma returns to Port Charles to spend some time with her grandmother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).

While the two have lunch at Kelly’s Diner, Griffin (Matt Cohen) shows up and hands over the DNA test results Anna had run on him confirming he is indeed Duke’s son.  Emma, who loved Duke and misses him, chats with Griffin as he explains how he never got to know his dad.  Emma says she doesn’t know what she would do if she ever lost her father, Patrick.  Emma feels very sad for Griffin that he never got to know Duke, and upon his request, she fills him on what Duke was like.

The episode clearly anchored Griffin further into the Scorpio-Drake family, now that Emma is accepting and likes Griffin.  Anna watched how the two interact and is very touched.   Watch the scene between Emma and Grifin after the jump and then weigh-in!

Did  you enjoy seeing Brooklyn Rae Silzer return to GH for a visit?  Do you hope there are more episodes in the future for her? Do you like how GH is integrating Matt Cohen further into story, and weaving him into the lives of the characters of Port Charles?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

The scene with Anna, Emma and griffin was great because of the actors, yet I still feel this would’ve played out better if griffin was Anna offspring.

You’re right, Aria. I think the story would have been so much more meaningful for both the characters and the fans.

I agree and what is the weird scar or thing on his stomach that we all saw- have they revealed what it is or the meaning of it? I find it strange and suspicious and something is amiss. Call me paranoid delusional- which seems to be the case of a few of us- but is this nice new Dr. a not nice man- or that what I suspect is a port- like something you plug a computer into or oh my am I losing more than my hair or is this suspect- why did we get a peek at it-… Read more »

No, Dave, you are not paranoid. You are so like myself and Shay, and a handful of others who notice trivial, seemingly insignificant ‘things’.
I made a comment as soon as a close-up of that scar came into view. Someone close to Anna may have inflicted that wound (or Anna herself); which may have healed outwardly, yet not inwardly.
I felt the same “something’s amiss” pang….so, YOU ARE NOT ALONE…….LOL.

I totally disagree about Griffin being Anna’s son.

There is no way we would NEVER have heard that Anna had another child!
Him being Duke’s son, however, is completely plausible and makes much more sense.
It would have been nice if he had come on the scene before Duke died, but this scenario works…at least for me!

I completely melted when I saw Emma. And, what a sweet, beautiful scene between her and Griffin. I also loves how on ease this little girl is with everyone….classic reunion with both Anna and Sonny.
May I say( out of context) that i really liked the outdoor scenes. ….I could have sworn it was upstate, New York. Lol. I’m serious!!

@Fanny.
My lovely Fanny,
That scene warmed my heart, as well. What would top it, would be that Griffin is really Anna’s son, and Emma’s uncle. Imagine that. Robin’s twin who was kidnapped at birth.
It could happen, right? Those GH magicians can make anything materialize…LOL.

I was disturbed to see her with Sonny, frankly and was going to ask about that but then they do have a history as Robin’s boyfriend was Sonny’s nephew or cousin- and he Stone was his name he had HIV and died? Something along those lines?

CeeCee, I thought we were back in the 80’s, the soap heydays when Julian and Alexis were on location in the park. Just so refreshing and the actors probably like it to.

I agree, Timmmy, the scenery was beautiful…I looked past what was in front of me and enjoyed the greenery and sunshine. Any scene outdoors is welcomed and relished.
You’re so sentimental, my Timmmbo. I hope your girl appreciates you. LOL. much love….

This was an all-around very good episode and Emma’s appearance was the icing on the cake. I wish she could be on every day.

I love that little girl and see an Emmy in her very near future. Exceptional. I am warming to Duke’s son but ok Robin and Patrick quit or went on to other shows or projects- is it unthinkable to recast them? If it is, then skip that question and go directly into attack mode. I had hoped to see Anna really – such a great actress and a rich character – a real friendship with Jordan where they drink and talk and Mac and Felicia- or for her to snap and be hospitalized. If that happened to be where Heather… Read more »

She seems like a pint-sized powerhouse to me and when she gets older she is going to really take that town over! And until then just love her and wish she would live there all the time and I think she would like that as well- her leaving was not her choice I don’t think. I would like to see more of Anna like you say -it seems instead of delving or building on existing they just send out a casting call.

Brooklyn will one day be on “Jimmy Kimmel” and she will be a mega star, for sure. She will boast being on GH and I hope they show the scene in the park where Britt throws the baby on the grill. Classic! [It was on “Talk Soup.”]

I enjoyed Emma and Griffin. There was a sweetness about it. But being a soap, I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop re: Griffin. It just can’t be all smooth sailing. Just hope the writers don’t mess this storyline up. There aren’t enough nice guys.

Little Sweetie is back and seems like she is melting Griff”s heart just like she did with Patrick. Great job! IF Duke is truly dead and I dont think he is, Anna and Emma should gravitate towards Griff because he is the last connection to their favorite Scotsman!

I was hoping Emma’s visit would bring back the real Anna DeVane instead of the Anna who sat with Sonny on Tuesday and absolved him of any guilt regarding Duke’s death. Sadly, it looks as though that Anna won’t be back any time soon as the current writers have the character sipping the Corinthos Kool-aid like everyone else in Port Charles.

Maybe Anna is just using Sonny to get to Carlos.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.
