GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robert Remembers Robin Is Alive! Will Anna Finally Rescue Her Daughter?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

If ever there was a moment in soap opera history that we, the viewers, were just agonizing along with the character to get out the words that hold the key to further a story, it was on Friday’s fantastic episode of General Hospital ... and talk about your “Cliffhanger Fridays”?

On Friday’s episode, Tristan Rogers finally returned on-screen as Robert Scorpio, who came out of his coma that he has been in for so, so long!  When he wakes up, Robert is disoriented and struggling to remember what happened the night he got the syringe, thanks to Dr. Obrecht, that landed him comatose in this hospital room in Switzerland.  With Anna (Finola Hughes) by his side, he starts to remember the key missing bit of information from that fateful day, in an unbelievable performance by Rogers!  He tells Anna, “Obrecht was there alright.  But she wasn’t alone.”  Anna asks, “Alright, who was she with?”  Robert in near tears and hysterics bursts out with, “She was with our daughter! She was with Robin, Anna!”   And then we fade to black till Monday!

But what made this all the more delicious was that in scenes prior, Dr Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), who is basically tormenting her captor, Robin Scorpio Drake (Kimberly McCullough), all but said to her that Robert will never remember that he saw Robin, even if he wakes up!  But he did, Dr  O!

What has made this story so sensational to watch unfold is that instead of making the audience suffer along with the character of Robin of her finding out bit by bit what went on in Port Charles with Patrick, while she has been held against her will for over a year, Robin has been filled in by Jerry Jacks, Dr O, and the DVD of the Nurses Ball!  So, Robin knows about Sabrina, and knows about Britt! Even, though Dr O has skewered the facts for her own malicious intent, such as kidnapping baby Ben bringing him to Robin and telling the long-suffering heroine that this is Patrick and her daughter, “Britta’s” baby!

And there was more drama filled moments on Friday’s episode! How about when Patrick (Jason Thompson), alone after his talk with Sam (Kelly Monaco), recalled scenes from his wedding to Robin?  The footage itself was such a wonderful moment for long time fans of the series who have rooted and wanted Patrick and Robin back together!  But that was actually slightly topped in emotional impact, when on Thursday’s episode, after Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) is out of her mind with worry about where her evil mother took her son, Anna remember saving a kidnapped Robin as a child in the historic and heartbreaking scenes of little Robin running into the arms of her mother ! And that was shown as Robin was lamenting in the present day that she wishes that Anna would rescue her as she has always done.

There is still one big fact that has not been revealed to key people in the storyline:  “Britta” is the daughter of Cesar Faison (Anders Hove) and Dr. Obrecht!  Robin does not know, and Anna does not know, but Britt knew and did not tell Anna, which could have been the key to where Dr. O was going to eventually take her baby.

In addition, Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) is turning up the pressure and the heat on Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) constantly undermining her relationship with Patrick and re-emphasizing that the good doc is not over his “dead” wife!  Luke (Anthony Geary) is held up on Cassadine Island with Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roche), where Jerry wants to give a dying Luke a sample of the anti-toxin that Robin made to test it, and to make sure Robin is not trying to kill Jerry! Meanwhile, a very clever Robin gets Dr. O to come look at her finding in her microscope pretending she has found the cure that could save Jerry’s life   Robin next smashes a vase over Dr. O’s head and she knocks her out! Next Robin says, “Now who’s the ‘stupid girl’?  Sweet dreams Frau Doctor!  Now it’s time for my dreams to come true! I am going home to my husband and my daughter.  I’m going home to my family!”  We wanted to yell, “Run, Robin, run!”

Friday’s GH moved along as such a crisp pace, as it had all week long, that it reminded us of how very successful primetime shows make every scene count in telling story within an hour time block to move the story forward.  Kudos to GH executive producer, Frank Valentini and head writer, Ron Carlivati for an amazing string of episodes with Friday’s at the top of the list for excitement!  This is what masterful soap opera storytelling is all about.

So the questions remain: Will Anna finally be able to put all the pieces together of the puzzle and figure out where Robin is?  Will Patrick move forward with his relationship with Sabrina even faster in trying to move on from Robin? Or, will he put on the brakes?   Is Cesar Faison going to pop up anytime soon?  Where you blown away by the performances of Tristan Rogers, Finola Hughes, Kimberly McCullough and Jason Thompson?  What were your favorite parts of Friday’s episode? What do you think will happen next?   Comment below!

Not to mention his accent! Love him and hope they keep him this time but if we go by the writer’s pattern…doubtful.

Would like for him to find out Ethan isn’t really his son and for Nathan Parsons) to return now that Helena is “supposedly” dead. Which I doubt…that she’s dead!

Tristan back on our screen was pure heaven. Now I hope they are not making Anna the sole hero in this rescue. It has to be Robert and Anna as a team. I loved that My favorite hero is back. The only thing that I did not like was his wakeup was off camera and Holly was not there. I really hope there’s more to the story on why Holly was not there. With this rubbish still being there that Ethan is a result of an “affair” that Holly and Luke had and any fan knows that was written in… Read more »

Once Mr. Spencer’s grave condition was revealed, I was sort of hoping for a “Luke’s Angels” type of rescue team comprised of all his lovely ladies of yesteryear : English/Holly, Blaze/Skye, his original “Angel”/Laura and maybe even “Slim”/Anna, although her plate is obviously full at the moment. But at least “Spanky”/Tracy has already made it to his side. Still looking for some additional reinforcements though….can’t believe they are too far behind!

The powers to be need to put Tristan Rogers on contract. Do they not notice the ratings spike whenever they bring him back? Viewers love Robert Scorpio and GH needs more legacy characters to appear on a regular basis not just during sweeps. Bring back Sean and Tiffany too!

Was a great week and Friday was incredible! With Robin, Jerry, Dr. O, Ben, Luke and soon (from the previews) Tracy and the inevitable arrival of Robert, Mac, Anna, Britt, Nick and the fallout affecting Patrick, Sabrina, Carlos, Maxie, Lulu, Spinelli, Dante and probably Olivia…. this is top notch storytelling. A stupid move by the previous writing regime (killing off Robin) has turned into a really great set of stories for the show… and the best is I’m sure yet to come – including, hopefully an appearance by Faison and untangling how Julian Jerome is involved in all of this… Read more »

It was an amazing week on GH! Seeing Robert, Anna, and Mac in the same room was a long time coming. Robin is a feisty bad ass and I loved when she clocked Dr. O on the head! The only thing that would’ve made the week better was Julie playing Lulu. To me, those scenes weren’t as emotional as they should’ve been because JMB wasn’t in them.

Yes the pace is wonderful— but just a reminder, after November sweeps into the holiday season and January- expect a slowdown. As much as some want daytime to be like prime time, it can’t– a prime time drama is max 20 shows a season– not the over two hundred shows per year for a soap on daytime. Enjoy the ride while it lasts– but don’t expect it to last forever. I recall plenty of complaints about the slowdown after the Nurses Ball, and while they were setting up the Jerome family to come to town. Soaps are all about ebbs… Read more »

Let’s be happy with what we are getting and I agree they can’t keep up the pace and the incrediblly jam packed stories but let’s embrace it and enjoy everything they give us. Mary is right about the ebbs and flows and the building of intricate story-lines and that takes time and layering and it can’t all flow like it is right now!!!

I really appreciate RC and FV and the love and care they’re putting into Robin’s return. Do I like every factor? No. But I truly get the feeling that they want this reunion between Robin and Patrick to be everything they’ve built it up to be. I see them believing Robin and Patrick are the winning duo in all of this, and as a big fan of theirs, I sincerely appreciate it and can therefore look forward to the story unfold. I know some parts of this will still be stomach churning, but if the end result is as bright… Read more »

Wish I could clarify but I’ve kind of let it all wash over me and am trying not to think about all the ins and outs too much. I don’t think that all pieces are supposed to fit together.. I’ve been watching soaps for 40 years and I’ve yet to see a story on any show be completely coherent and without plot holes.

Also: I totally forgot all about Ewen altogether.. and since no one on screen has even mentioned him in well over a year, I doubt his involvement will even come up.

Mary SF

This is the way i understood it– Jerry is dying from radiation poison but Faison says he can provide a cure for Jerry if he coughs up millions of dollars. In order to get that money Jerry poisons PC’s water supply and ransoms off the antidote. He gets the money, then fakes his death. I believe Robin was at first being used as someone to experiment on in order to find the cure, which would explain why Ewen was there overseeing Dr. O work for Jerry, since it was Jerry’s money going toward the cure Faison said he could produce… Read more »

Thanks for taking the time and typing it out though. I think at least I have a *better* idea…maybe….(by “John”, did you mean “Luke”?) but if someone were to just tune in now, when the show is on such a supposed high, I don’t know how they could follow this tale. I’d be so lost if I didn’t know as little as I do. Deep and layered is good,… Read more »

From what I can remember, Ewen first appears (or his body does) rescuing Elizabeth after she is pushed off (the haunted star?) by Lisa Niles (the first wacko Dr. who had to have Patrick).We soon discover that Ewen is a Dr. who is actually is staying at Wyndemere where he treating a young woman he calls”Cassandra”( who turns out to be Irina Cassadine, Helena’ daughter). Elizabeth and we the audience actually “meet” Ewen at Shady Brook (where she is staying for a time) soon to find out that he is the newly hired psychiatrist at G H.

Mary SF here– by John I meant that guy who is playing Silias now— he came from OLTL as John McBain and he worked with Anna and he was the one who exposed fake Duke (Faison in disguise) by pouring hot cheese on the mask and it melted. Later on PP and ABC had their spat about copyright and the character John McBain was written off GH and the guy who played John McBain came back on the show as Silias. But I do get how twisted this story is and I can’t even guarantee my understanding is correct— because… Read more »

Ah yes. I remember now there was a John character brought on the show recently. Thanks for clarifying.

(I’m not so much doubting you right now, but “hot cheese”?? SERIOUSLY? *sigh*. I couldn’t take it if I watched that with my own eyes. There’s only so much ridiculous I can take and that just sounds like it far exceeds my limits.)

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

It wasn’t as “cheesy” as it sounds. The confrontation was taking place in a hotel room. Fake Duke (Faison) had arranged for this dinner for Anna in the suite, so there was a fondue in room, which I assume was cheese since most fondues are. When John saw Anna didn’t know who was who anymore, or who to believe, Fake Duke or Robert, he observed Fake Duke sweating, I guess he noticed the mask then, so he grabbed the fondue and threw into Fake Duke’s face and the scalding liquid cause Faison to rip off the mask that half melted… Read more »

I actually watched most episodes of GH this week primarily bc it had the Scorpio and Jones- many of the vets on! I loved Robert in the 80s and hope the vets go find Robin- a Gh mini “Red” team. Though I really find the constant bringing up of Frisco lately and often in a negative manner ridiculous. Move on ! Robert and Frisco were friends and we saw more of that brotherhood than Mac and Robert so bs on him saying some of that stuff. Either bring JW back or leave it to rest.

Shay
Guest
Shay

So right you are!…The constant Frisco bashing of this past week was beyond distasteful….it was insulting not only to Jack Wagner, but to all of his fans who would like nothing better than to see him back in Port Charles….and without his insipid ex-wife, at that!!!! The petty vendetta the ptb’s seem to have with this actor and his character is really off-putting and immature, and it is spoiling the nostalgic euphoria that many of us from the glory days of the ’80’s are otherwise enjoying…..either put up or shut up where Frisco is concerned!!!!!

udhoop

I agree with both of you. I especially thought Robert’s comments to Mac were a little strange. I know Robert and Mac grew close eventually but Robert & Frisco had an incredible friendship for way more years.

Very true! I’ll give the “Adorable Aussie” the benefit of the doubt….we can blame the propofol overdose for his memory lapse…..LOL. However, there is simply no acceptable excuse for the writers’ and producers’ obviously intentional and regrettable use of revisionism to perform character assassination on our beloved “Frisco.” Now THAT’S just plain “nasty!” ; )

It’s been great but I think part of the reason for faster resolutions is because of the cancelled shows. The OLTL team knows that too many loose threads and stories that drag on cannot be tied up quickly should the worst happen…it’s a win/win.

Totally agree. Friday’s episode was awesome! Now I want Britt’s baby given to Dante and LuLu because we all know she had to have used one of their remaining embryos to get pregnant. I don’t like that she is so attached to Ben when she knows he’s not her son, and it will help ease the pain Dante and LuLu are feeing over having to give Connie to her real parents. Please lets not drag this storyline on much longer. It’s been long enough and Britt does not deserve that baby. Kudos to GH for finally bringing the Robin storyline… Read more »

Last Week, Frank Valentini, Exec VP & Ron Carlavati , Head Writer proved once again why they are the leaders of this exciting soap. The episodes moved along smoothly and the actors had outstanding performances, especially Robert, Robin, Anna, Luke, Mac, Dr. O, Britt, Jerry Jacks, Patrick……and Tracy should be on an episode soon, looking for her lover man, Luke.

I am in total sync with you re Maura West /Ava J. I vented about it in the article on Sept 26th ( or 25th ) that shows a pic of Ava /Morgan caught in bed using just about the same words as you,with the exception that even though I knew of her being in other soaps, I never saw her act. I somehow imagine that she plays every role the same way.

Shay
Guest

Totally agree with you about “Ava J.” West is becoming so over-the-top and one-note in her portrayal, it’s difficult to see how it can continue on for the long-term. However, I must admit that despite not being a fan of Ms. Jerome, there was an enjoyable moment of levity in yesterday’s episode when she made a literary reference to her youthful paramour, and it obviously went right over his pretty little head…did you catch the stunned, eyes glazed-over look of her “Aha moment” as she realized what an intellectual lightweight her lunk of a hunk was? “Read a book!” she… Read more »

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
