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.

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
