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.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
