GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Courtesy/ABC

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.

I had read that Emma Sam’s would be doing only a short run but the conclusion was a real surprise. Hopefully the stuff Holly gave Selena Woo incapacitates him for a while. I’m so sick of seeing his evil face every day. I think I could tolerate Peter better.

Oh Violet -how quickly we forget! The Peter Problem was far worse than Victor. Charles Shaughnessy at least has a charm factor that the unmentionable one never had. As for the Holly storyline wrap up – kudos to the writers who SHOWED us the details and didn’t just tell. Based on the Q Thanksgiving timing, the show is likely still airing 2 days behind (due to recent preemptions). This means the explosion and “Holly on fire” episode was supposed to air the day before Thanksgiving with the reveal on this past Monday – giving the audience a long weekend to… Read more »

OG Steve,
I do like Charles but can’t stand his character, as played he thinks he’s God and not just evil but moves all these people around like he’s playing Chess. Now he’s taken the gift Cyrus gave Spencer for Trina, wonder what plans he has for that?
Aside, we finally know who spawned Esme, poor girl, didn’t have a chance in life and poor grandchild, if it makes it. Liz has sure got herself involved in a mess helping her and Nick with all the deception.

What a geological line for little “Ace”:

Great grandparents: Mikkos & Helena
Grandparents: Ryan, Heather & Stavros
Mother: Esme

Overall, I guess I’m okay with Heather as Esme’s mother (better than the initial plan of Felicia). Just weird that Heather has two sons in their 50s and 20 year old Esme. Not bad for a woman who had a hysterectomy after Steven Lars!

Well…at least his other grandmother is sane and mentally healthy…apart from those few years where she was a blonde wig propped up on top of a rocking chair at Shady Brook Mental Hospital.

OG Steve,
Yes, very interesting and stranger yet is Heather doesn’t act any crazier than anyone else!

Great storyline! Finally – Holly was in character! And both Tristan and Emma brought their A game! As a long time Robert and Holly fan, I was happy. Kudos to everyone.

I have been watching GH for over 40 years. As a long time fan, yesterday’s episode was EPIC. NOBODY in daytime television plays “Agnst” better than Emma Sam’s. Back in the day when Luke met Holly in the woods… she had twisted her ankle. Luke was out finding himself … wanting to die, as he had thought he lost the love of his life, Laura. Holly and Luke fell in love. Then, when everyone thought Luke had died… Holly moved in with Robert. Slowly, Holly and Robert fell in love. Then Luke came back… Holly bolted and the saga continued.… Read more »

N.W…For some reason I missed the Holly/Luke/Robert story from earlier days. So I really enjoyed your recap of it.

Except it’s a bit off. Holly wasn’t pining for Luke particularly after Laura returned from captivity (presumed dead). Viewers were lead to believe Holly was unable to carry a child (after she miscarried after becoming pregnant by Luke – after he was presumed dead). It was Anthony Geary’s insistence that Ethan be made Luke’s that altered the story a bit. Luke was said to cheat on Laura conceiving Ethan with a fertile Holly. As they discussed Robert & Holly’s timing always seems off…. First – Holly “dies” in an Australian plane crash. Robert finds love with Cheryl Stansbury, Katherine Delafield… Read more »

OG Steve…Oh my gosh…based on your update looks like we can expect more. I’m still for Robert and Anna, but it wouldn’t surprise me If Holly comes back into the story.

I felt no heart-tugging whatsoever—-so glad Samms is gone. Nonetheless , it seems she was popular back in the day? I hope she was more inspiring, as a character and an actress, as she has been for me.

Gotta say I’ve been loving the last couple of weeks of GH! It’s wonderful to see Tristan Rogers, Emma Samms, Kristina Wagner, Genie Francis and John York front-and-center on a big storyline, and each of these vets have delivered the goods. Soaps are and always shall be a youth-centered industry, but it’s nice to give some veteran players something substantial to do to remind us of the talent that made them veterans! Kudos to the writers and the actors who really delivered on this story … and are continuing to do so.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
