GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robert Is Shocked When He Sees Holly as Emma Samms Returns

Courtesy/ABC

It’s been a long time coming and on today’s Thursday October 20th, GH fans welcomed back fan favorite Emma Samms in her role as Holly Sutton.

Samms, who is battling Long Covid, recent it to the U.S from the UK to film all-new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama.

In story, as Lucy (Lynn Herring) has now gone missing, Anna (Finola Hughes) is desperately trying to break Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).  Meanwhile, we see a woman face down near the rocks and a body of water.  Suddenly, she begins to have some movement in her hands.  The woman gets up and walks through some other rocks and heads off.

Later, the woman makes her way to the Quartermaine boathouse.  Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who just had to get away from the unpleasant argument at the Q’s and is not feeling well, heads to the boathouse after seeing traces of wet footprints. Once inside, she lets out a scream.

Next thing you know, Michael (Chad Duell) runs to her as Willow is thinking the woman could be the ‘hook’ killer who ended Brando’s life. At the PCPD, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) informs everyone that a woman just showed up at the Q’s estate after receiving a call from Ned (Wally Kurth).  Anna is hoping it’s Lucy!

Dante and Robert (Tristan Rogers) hightail to the Quartermaines.  Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) gets a lead about a registered drone that surveyed the lake the previous night. When she obtains the footage from the drone, Martin (Michael E. Knight), and Anna look on. They watch someone supposedly shooting Lucy and her falling into the steely waters off the pier.  Once they see the face of the shooter, Martin and Jordan turn and look at Anna and want answers.

Dante and Robert arrive at the Q’s and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), who has seen the woman inside the boathouse, tells Robert to prepare himself before he goes in.  Once inside, Robert sees a a very much alive Holly Sutton!

So are you glad to see Emma back on GH? How do you think Holly’s story will play out? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Emma Samm’s, despite the trespass of time and despite her illness, looks radiantly beautiful- even soaking wet. I loved the way she said,” Hello Robert.” I wish Emma Samms could stay and hope she find the road to wellbille.

Not a fan of Holly or Lucy, but I hope that old creep didn’t kill her. I’m really getting sick and tired of the Victor show, way too much of him lately.

I’ve never been a Holly fan either. I did like Robert with Anna best. Always like Lucy. She brings energy to GH since her time as a librarian. But it is still nice to see Emma again, and that she is recovering from yet another bad virus that’s associated with covid.

I only know Lucy from past few years with her numerous gentleman friends, Kevin, Scotty, Martin now and of course the horrible old Uncle Victor.Ive read her history which is extensive and crazy to say the least.I only know of Holly from what I’ve read about her, and don’t Luke her.I would much rather see Robert with Diane, which looked promising after his visit to her at G.H.

Violet, YES! Robert & Diane are looking very hopeful to me, too. Emma Samms is beautiful and brings a nice presence to the show…but her acting has only ever been average. She’s no Maura West or Laura Wright, that’s for certain. I still wince from the 80s when Emma replaced the vivid, unique Pamela Sue Martin as Fallon on DYNASTY. It got so bad that when Fallon was abducted by aliens in that ridiculous UFO story, I was praying she’d stay gone. I’d much rather they bring back Nathan Parsons’ sexy Ethan (Holly’s son). But it’s nice to have a… Read more »

Yes, Emma is beautiful but it’s only skin deep right? I do not remember her on DYNASTY, only Pamela Sue Martin, funny! In the hospital.she did not call her son when Robt.tried to get her to do so??

I personally can’t stand Diane. I used to like her; thought her snark was amusing. Now she’s just judgmental 24/7, and way too aligned with Carly. Her attitude toward Nina even in the nail salon days before the trial even began made me want to slap her through the screen. She represents criminals, she supposedly knows the horrid history of Carly, but like all the other characters who are written to die on their sword for Carly, she ignores all of it and goes straight for the most hurtful parts of Nina’s life. With that said, I love Robert and… Read more »

I do not want Diane with Robert. She reminds me of Edward G Robinson in a pantsuit.

Violet…Lucy also handled putting together the annual Nurses Ball when it really was a “ball.” I also prefer The possibility of Robert with Diane right now. But has she broken up with one of Sonny’s henchmen? I know Epifanny (sp.?) has.

The real life brothers who portrayed Max and Milo both moved to Tennessee a few years ago. Max hasn’t been mentioned in a few years. Sonny’s current main bodyguard Frank has been on for about 2 years.

It’s been great seeing Lucy and Robert driving story recently. With Holly back for a month or so, we’re guaranteed to see a lot of TR. There’s little chance that Lucy is actually dead. Most likely scenario is that Victor rescued Alex Marrick after she went overboard and “programmed” her to shoot Lucy. Victor’s goons grabbed Lucy and are holding her wherever Holly was. They released Holly to distract Robert. Holly’s appearance brings back memories of her first return from the dead in the early 90s just before Robert & Anna were presumed dead in the boat explosion with Faison.… Read more »

Sounds good to me, OG Steve.

PS—-I think you may have solved the mystery, OG Steve. The shooter looks like Anna because it’s actually Alex.
Lew, also, made a good point——the shooter could be this Holly person?

Satan
Guest
Satan

Given Holly’s memory gaps, and the fact that her last known location was the dungeon on Cassadine Island, it’s certainly possible that Victor may have brainwashed her, much like he did Drew at the time. Somebody break out the Tarot cards and deprogram her already, if that’s the case. Doesn’t mean she’s the shooter though. The shooter had Anna’s face, and there wasn’t time to do a proper “deep fake” with the video. ReRon isn’t writing the show anymore, so I doubt they would go back to the stupid latex mask gimmick, so that means the shooter is most likely… Read more »

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, I think so, too, Satan. Alex, as the shooter, makes the most sense. Also, the shocked look on Lucy as she came face to face with the shooter, speaks volumes. She recognized “her” as Anna!! What an imbroglio—devised by a Greek with a British accent—kind of unrealistic, wouldn’t you say?—-and, the fact that his physiognomy (such an Anglo-looking dude) goes against all that is Grecian—-all for Victor’s pernicious quest? I am completely confused. Is Victor after something unique? Is it tangible?—-or is he just a mean, old son of a “cagna”?

Satan
Guest
Satan

Yeah… the original Victor had an Australian accent, but actually looked Greek. I still see Shane Donovan when I look at the current “Victor”. Or at least Shane’s evil twin Andrew. As far as what his agenda is? I’ll be eternally damned if I know. He’s talked at great length about unifying all the remaining Cassadines (under his leadership, of course) and at some point he mentioned this unity was going to be required for some sort of “threat” coming against the family, but I don’t remember any follow up on what this alleged threat might have been. Whatever it… Read more »

LOL. Satan—-I see Mistah Sheffield; Mistah Sheffield, when I see “Victor”. Your eloquent writing truly makes this unbodied plot/scheme border on the absurd. Victor does not seem to have a plan—-it’s like following the yellow brick road which veers everywhichway, leading nowhere. Victor wants to unify the family—right!! Let’s see—great way to start is by taking Charlotte away from her father—the only parent she has, at this point. That makes so much sense. The writers have no clue where this storyline is going, making Victor actually appear off his rocker— I don’t know where this idiot plot is going, but… Read more »

PS, Satan—I forgot to mention that Victor’s Hocus Pocus is always conducted on the phone. To whom is he speaking? Is it someone we know? Someone who is supposedly dead?
(Correction–idiotic plot)

Satan
Guest
Satan

As far as I know, all the Cassadines who are supposed to be dead & in Hell are still here. Most of Victor’s phone calls have either been to his main henchman, Johan, or to others who we already knew were on his payroll, like the deputy mayor. There’s been some speculation that he might have messed with Holly’s brain while she was a prisoner on Cassadine Island, but she didn’t seem to recognize him when she slapped him upside the head the other day, so if she’s been programmed, either he didn’t do it himself, or he made sure… Read more »

I barely met Holly, Satan, but I don’t like her already.
Well, if she were brainwashed by Victor ( which happens to be the common-denominator-name for bad boys in many a soap), perhaps he programmed her in such a way that she would not recognize him—to his advantage, of course. —Holly is another one of his minions—and, she will soon cause havoc. If more time had gone by, I would have thought this is actually Lucy in Holly-mode.
Nonetheless, some hanky-panky is certainly going on which involves both women, somehow—‘kinda’ dumb on the part of the writers, I would say—too coincidental??

Celia, Celia, I hate to wish bad on ANYONE. I take it back; in this case I look forward to wishing ill on TWO someones. I’ll explain: during those “oh so romantic (of the Pepto Bismol variety)” beach scenes with Carly and Drip, sorry, Drew, I kept looking in the distance, hoping for a rogue tsunami to end my suffering. Still waiting. WHO wants these scenes? What torture! Across the country, I’m enjoying Charles Shaughnessy’s Victor, but the character is playing like a schoolyard bully, not a brilliant nemesis. His lines can be reduced to, “Screw me over and I’ll… Read more »

Isn’t it wondrous how he never fails to have something magically land in his lap, to use as a weapon against someone? Mamma mia!!

Aside–Brook Lynn and Chase—What a waste of mannhood and virility—a sculped body to boot!!…I don’t even have an appropriate name for her. Lot’s daughters come to mind: Rebekah, Rachel and Tamar–Good old Catholic School Catechism.
She hears her own discordant drum, not Chase’s. She does not deserve Adonis in her bed. And, he does not deserve such a deceitful lover. Apate personified!!

PS–as you know, I don’t know much about Carly—I was never interested enough to research—How many times has she been married? I know that she was a bad, bad girl—as far as shooting someone? Was that Sonny or AJ?.

Also, I can’t believe Heather is not Robin —this nuHeather-woman looks like that person, called “Queen Consort”,–RIP, sweet, beautiful Queen Diana!!

Another corpse come to life is overdue—it’s been a while. Helena? Peter? Is Faison dead? Can’t remember—I miss him.
I’m pretty sure “Amazon” (pardon the pun) offers a few of GH’s walking dead (women) available.

Celia

I have no idea who Holly is–I wonder if this is all related to Victor. Is the hooded “woman” who shot Lucy the “Hook”? Has Victor been behind all the stabbings and Brando’s death? So, is Esme “innocent”?

Satan

Holly was Robert’s second wife. She was also Luke’s second wife, though that was only a green card marriage to keep her from being deported, and would have eventually been invalid anyway as Laura turned out not to be dead. Holly was first presumed dead in a late 80s plane crash, but has returned a few times since then. She’s also the mother of Ethan, and they claim that Luke is his father, but that was a rewrite that never made any sense at all. Considering Holly was pregnant with Robert’s child when she “died” in the plane crash, it… Read more »

Celia
Guest

WOW–Thank you for that very enlightening synopsis, Satan!! A true soap opera “melodrama”—I’m going to search the internet for some of these scenes— Holly seems too young to have been married to both Luke and Robert—and an adult son to boot?
Emma is awesome looking—one thing: I found it difficult to understand what she was saying, mainly because she barely opens her mouth when speaking—does not enunciate her words.
Again, thank you for taking the time….❤️

Minor correction- Holly and Luke were never married. After Luke was presumed dead in a plane crash, Robert, being the gentleman that he is, offered to marry her so she could stay in the states and raise Luke’s child. Sadly, Holly suffered a miscarriage but she and Robert eventually fell in love.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Actually Luke was presumed dead in an avalanche at a ski resort, but other than that you are correct, and my aging Devil memory betrayed me again.

The one weird thing about that is… how could Robert give Holly a green card marriage, when he wasn’t a US citizen himself at the time? I don’t remember how they got around that one… unless he got a shortcut to citenship by having so many friends in law enforcement, both locally & world wide.

Oh Celia, what a mess of quandaries. I gather the “hooded woman” was meant to resemble Anna as a setup, which implicates Victor. The real “hooker”? Who knows? I don’t think it’s Esme. On other topics, how adorable was Chase today, not wanting to disappoint Brook Lynn? What a guy.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Poor Anna!! She’s been had—the plot thickens….. Yes, on other topics…. ….A rarity, Soaphound—Chase, that is. At the risk of sounding patronizing, when reaching a certain age, men revert to childhood—very dependent and self-centered. Chase is still too young, but I hope his dignity and altruistic nature/gestures never go out of style. I’m not there yet, albeit my mother-in-law tells me that Italian mothers love spoiling their sons—especially first-born sons—glad mine isn’t the first-born son.LOL. I tell you, Soaphound–not liking Brook-Lynn right now. She did a complete reversal–Sooo typically Quartermainish, don’t you think?She does not love Chase–he does because he’s… Read more »

I know, Celia. I was really high on them until this rock star thing started. Now she seems obsessed with burning Linc. I mean if Chase was my guy, he’d be “off his feet” most of the time, not singing. Maybe they can be salvaged. The only other available gal that I like is Sasha and it’s too soon for her to move on.

You are so naughty, Soaphound—very bad influence on my virgin eyes/ears. HaHaHa and LOL..

100 percent perfect! Anna had mentioned to Robert recently that Robert should find a “New” someone. Well, he has. Not so new but very much alive and its time for a love reunion! This gives Tristan the out if he wants to leave and ride off into the sun with his dear Holly!

Could it be she is working with Victor? Strange that she shows up when Lucy disappears. With no signs of trauma?

This is all a set up. No blood on the docks and a bullet casing with one shoe left behind as “evidence” and perfectly filmed by that drone which coincidentally happened to be in just the right place at the right time. I don’t know where Lucy is but I will bet Holly does.

Celia
Guest

A set-up. Hmmm—I like it, Jo. Too easy, too neat not to have been a well-thought- out plan—-—all to frame Anna and get her off Victor’s back. He knows she’s on his case of discovery—- kudos to the writers for deftly diverting Anna’s course—not that I like it, but it does give credence to the plot.

Look at it this way, Celia… this police tale will give Jordan more chances to pose and look “tough”, while Dante will inevitably suspect and arrest the wrong people. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has Leo or Wiley in the interrogation room next week.

LOL—you got that right, Soaphound. Funny how I really didn’t like nuJordan ( I took to second-Jordan immediately; more so than the original) so much. I thought she didn’t fit the role —but, now? Her sort of quiet, unassuming persona is very enigmatic. I love her, sort-of-detached, snobby ‘tude, yet she does not give herself airs, Dante? Double LOL. He’s sooo scary!! Does he know which way is in or out? He doesn’t even lighten up coupled with Sam. What a mismatched couple—she is the most morose character ( almost Goth-like) on soaps. What a bore—as my grandmother would say,… Read more »

After today’s show there is good reason to believe she’s up to her British neck in all this. I just hope it’s someone we’d never think of that’s pulling her strings and not the old Scrooge Victor. I’m so sick of him, in everyone’s lives.

Loving Robert’s screen time, but hate, hate, HATE the Diane pairing. No!!! I know that Holly is only on short-term, but I’d been hoping that Kim Delaney would come back as Jackie and that she and Robert would have another go!

Bill
I must say your thoughts are out of left field. I think as well as some others that Robt. and Diane together would be great. As far as Kim Delaney, she was quite boring last time as Chases mother, with not much added to the story, only to show she and Finn had a one nighter which they thought produced Chase, and then she was gone!

Celia
Guest

Bill, I’ll take Kim Delaney in any role—-better she with Robert than “Diane”. The woman feels too entitled, and I do not like anyone who root-root-roots for any criminal.
I wish she would make a come-back and be paired with Michael Knight!!

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.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

Photo: KThiebaudIG

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Photo: ABC

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Photo: ABC

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
