GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robert Returns To Warn Laura, Liz and Hayden On A Collision Course!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought some major developments in key storylines.  First, how nice it was so see Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) back reprising his role of Robert Scorpio!  And how much nicer still that he came back to Port Charles, and shared scenes with his longtime friend, Laura (Genie Francis)!

However, Scorpio comes back to give Laura a message from Luke, who Robert says he heard from thus assuring Laura that her ex is alive.  Laura tells Robert about the skeleton Lulu (Emme Rylan) found on Cassadine Island, which had some of Luke’s belongings on it.  She then tells him that Luke needs to reach out to Lulu!  Then the conversation turns to the real purpose of Robert’s in-person visit.  Luke wants to warn Laura that Valentin Cassasdine (James Patrick Stuart) is not done with seeking revenge, even though he is supposedly locked-up in Greece. Laura admits that Valentin went after Spencer (Nicolas Bechtel) as he is the one heir standing in his way of the Cassadine Fortune.  Robert tells her to increase security around Spencer.  She then decides she will send Spencer to boarding school.  Then, Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) sents a text to Laura asking her for another chance, after their night together and Laura finding  the paper he was writing about her, which caused Laura to make a quick exit.

Later when Kevin shows up at Wyndemere to see Laura, he sees her bags are packed. She reveals she is leaving to take Spencer to boarding school.  But she will return after Spencer is situated.  Kevin wants Laura to promise that she will give him another chance.  She refuses to commit to that.  All of this to say, this will mark Genie Francis’ summer exit as she will be off-screen till the end of September, while taking her hiatus from the series.  Looks like when Laura returns we will see if she and Kevin stand a chance at a long romance, or not.

Meanwhile, diamonds aren’t always a girls best friend!  In this instance, they could be downright deadly!  Hayden’s (Rebecca Budig) conniving mother Naomi (Robin Riker), wants the two of them to get out of Port Charles ASAP.  In the middle of this discussion, Naomi gets a phone call and privately takes it.  It’s Heather Webber (Robin Mattson) on the other end from prison, demanding her hush money payment from Naomi that she has not received for three months.  Naomi needs an extension, but Heather has something big on her and will spill the beans if no payment is forthcoming.

Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) are both in their own ways, exciting for their date, but Franco is short on cash.  He visits his mother in prison to ask for some moolah, and she reveals her cash flow has been interuppted thanks to Naomi! Franco says he will get the money for her in an effort to find out what Heather is up to.  Then Heather slips out a connection between Naomi’s past, Jeff Webber, and “the brat”.

Meanwhile, Hayden has run into Ava (Maura West).  And it was not good news for Hayden!  Ava admits that Elizabeth has her diamonds and is planning on turning into the feds.  Just then, Elizabeth calls Jordan Ashford (Vinessa Antoine) to let her know she has evidence to use against Hayden!

In the best scene of the episode:  Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina) gave an emotional turn with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) as they commiserate over their love lives, since Parker (Ashley Jones) informed Kristina she is returning to her wife, and Alexis is still reeling from her messed-up relationship with Julian (William deVry) .

Now, watch a preview of the catfight and bitchslap between Hayden and Liz on Monday’s episode below!  Then weigh-in:  What will Hayden and Liz do when they find out what looks to be the truth …  that they are sisters?  What did you think of Robert coming to warn Laura?  Do you hope Genie is back on the canvas soon? Did you enjoy the Kristina and Alexis scene? Share your thoughts on Friday’s episode in the comment section below!

I seem to remember reading on another site that he was due to be back on the GH set at the end of August, which if true, would mean we should see him back on screen towards the end of September.

I wish Robert and Laura scene had been longer, its been over 30 yrs since they shared scenes and they barely got 2 mins, disgrace..Robert Scorpio is always a great sight for sore eyes..He’s as handsome and always..I think Frank/Nathan need to signed Tristan and not let him leave, Robert Scorpio can filled the void left by Luke and he also can bring the WSB back and recruit some of the young guys as agents Curtis, Dante, Nathan, etc, etc,..So much can be done if Robert stick around. Sign him Frank!!

Dan
Guest

I would love to see Robert back in Port Charles permanently, but I don’t think Tristan wants to sign a contract. He seems happy being able to float back and forth between GH and Y&R, and I’m glad ABC and CBS, and whomever else is involved, have a working agreement that allows him to do that. I’ll take Robert popping in every now and then over not seeing him at all.

“Laura, Laura, Laura, it’s been too long, my dear.” Indeed and right back at you Scorpio, the Cary Grant of daytime.

Awwww 🙁 the vid took me to Hulu and wanted me to sign up to get a free whatever/week, so I didn’t see the vid.. I don’t like Hulu and didn’t want to mess with it so I skipped it.. But- it read like it will be inester and hopefully will give some drama .. I hope Liz gets the slap and— I want more Heather!! I like Heather and Franco scenes! Looking forward to Tyler/Nikolas return.. hope he gets the diamonds back.. I believe he is being cared for by that woman on the Island that brought the medical… Read more »

Su..I also love Heather and Franco scenes. Now there is chemistry! But not so much for Franco and Liz. Still like him with Nina. Hope they make up but don”t get too “normalized.” Think the idea of Nik and that woman makes sense. Wonder when Valentin breaks out of maximum security. Need his villanous presence back, especially since Robert now aware of him. Would also be fun if Heather gets a hankering for a BLT and takes a little stroll out of prison for a while.

Well, “the brat” story is so painfully obvious. I am pretty confident that I was right. Hayden is the brat and she’s Liz’s full or half sister. I just don’t know how Heather fits into all of this. I have nothing to go on to even form an opinion….you all do, I’m sure….as you know the history between Heather and the Webers. What’s the premise? Heather helped Naomi get rid of Liz? Is Liz “the brat”? Now, why does a grown man depend on Mommy for money? This is so outrageous ….why are TPTB doing this to Franco? Better yet,… Read more »

Heather got pregnant by Jeff Webber who refused to divorce his first wife Monica …Heather gave birth to their son Steven Lars but told Jeff the child was stillborn and she sold the baby for $10,000 with the help of her landlady while living in New York where Heather left to become a model…the baby was sold to Peter and Diana Taylor whom Heather once worked for as a nanny…Diana’s daughter Martha died making Peter and Diana childless so they adopted the child…too much story to continue so im keeping it brief…Heather returned to PC and she did marry Jeff…well,… Read more »

Wow!! Thank you, Jimmy. Finally….I Can See!!!! LOL. It feels good having guessed right without a clue for once. I know I said this before…..but, even before all the speculation a mystery started, I knew Naomi was Liz’s mother. When Hayden and Liz said, “Mother” in unison; I just knew. At the time my comment was lame, at best, since I was just throwing ideas out there…. But, soon enough, most picked up on it. You were right there behind me, ,Jimmy….we probably wrote the same thing at the same time, my friend….As I keep saying, Jimmy, we read each… Read more »

Jimh: I was a kid at the time but I have re-watched a lot of it on youtube. Admittedly, most of what I see is vintage LnL stuff. Can you help me fill in some of the Jeff Webber pieces please? Who was the little boy named P.J.? Is he actually Steven Lars? Did the P.J. stand for Peter, Jr.? There is a scene where Leslie asks LnL to come babysit P.J. after Diana’s murder. Then later there is another scene where LnL and many other characters go over to Leslie’s house to tell Jeff and P.J. goodbye when they… Read more »

Jimh, excellent analysis and synopsis, Friend! I saw your post after I wrote a reply to Celia, in which I also mentioned Heather’s connection to Diana Taylor. Your memory of those storylines involving Heather and Diana mirror mine. And it’s so refreshing to see someone other than me writing about storylines from the 70s! Of course, I know you and I have discussed our mutual admiration for Valerie Starrett, the original Diana Taylor. Anyway, your synopsis presented all the highlights. I will just add the following for our fellow friends here who might not have been watching back then (or… Read more »

Thanks so much, Jimh! I could go on and on about my fandom of Valerie Starrett — and I believe I have done so on these pages! 🙂 I have to say I really like your idea of Starrett playing Diana when Diana was pursing Jeff Webber (I wish I could have seen that, no slight to Brooke Bundy), and linking that to Jesse Brewer’s pursuit of Phil Brewer. Although Diana, as played by Starrett, was the good-girl heroine, she had plenty of her own desperate, neurotic moments: (1) her attempt to induce labor a couple of months early so… Read more »

Hello again, Jimh! I’m glad that what I wrote might have sparked some memories for you. I also fondly remember Lucille Wall as Lucille Marsh. She was quite the character. There were so many wonderful characters and storylines in the early and mid-70s when the hospital was still at the forefront. It’s been so nice to reminisce (again) with you about them.

More importantly, I hope you are feeling better. My thoughts are with you, Friend!

Wow! Valerie Starrett… those were the days! Like Jacquie Courtney’s Alice on Another World, Valerie infused Diana with a mix of fragility and ferociousness. And I LOVED Laura Campbell as Pat Lambert. I remember she was an artist hired by General Hospital at Peter Taylor’s recommendation to paint murals in the children’s ward. She was a fascinating actress and went toe-to-toe with Valerie Starrett beautifully (after Diana’s involvement with Augusta McLeod, she was better equipped to handle Pat). I think we are one of the few who watched the show during this period. Why Valerie was replaced with the blonde… Read more »

yep., still think Kiki and Nina are daughter and mommy unless Nelle is-right now i dont trust Nelle-i wonder what she is hiding?

Celia

LOL, Jimmy. Whoever Nina’s offspring is, she/he is alive. Sooner or later the mystery will be solved. Pipe dream? Maybe, but I like that dream.
I am pretty sure you read my posts (lol), so, you know I suspected Nelle from day one. Perhaps it’s because Nell is spelled ‘Nelle’? LOL…Even my iPad complains because whenever I type ‘Nelle’, the word is underlined in red, but ‘Nell’ is not.

I dont think Nina will adopt a kid based on past history. She will be at her lowest, maybe even suicidal and her daughter, Kiki or whomever, will appear and save Nina’s life.

James and Jimmy, you two ought to collaborate on a book about GH history. How on earth do you know all this? What amazing memory retention you both have. Incidentally, when I was a kid and heard Heather going on and on about her son, I heard her saying, “Steve and Lars.” I thought she had two sons and did not know at the time that it was one kid named Steven Lars.
It’s one of those misunderstood lyrics kind of thing.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Where to start? Roger is being wasted as Franco. Like you said, borrowing money off mommy is silly! I like Heather but if they are trying to clean up Franco for Liz, Heather is not a good family member to have floating around! Scotty as Franco’s dad is gold but they don’t have them in many scenes together! I always said screen gold would be Scotty and Franco sharing an apartment together. Liz should run as fast as she can! She will have her hands full with her sister Hayden!

Celia
Guest
Celia

I cannot wait for that, my Timmmy. Hayden and Miss Lizzie in complete shock of finding out they’re sisters…..Awwwe-some!!!!
As ridiculous as it is, I like Scotty’s and Franco’s ‘banterish’ relationship. Scotty looks so much younger than Franco, albeit I know he is not.
I beg TPTB to clean Franco up; not just his persona, but also, his physical appearance. He looks more and more scraggly and non-descript. Is he supposedly the epitome of what a starving ‘artiste’ looks like?
I love Franco, but I want all of him….not this panting dreamer sniffing Liz’s skirts.

Well, Celia, you hit one out of the park, as usual (although I’m not here often enough to see all your at-bats)! Brilliant writing and analysis, Friend! I can only offer up these views: As someone who used to watch GH regularly, long ago and far away, I am always thrilled by a return by Heather because: (1) Robin Mattson is a great actress; and (2) she is the sole link (along with son Steven Lars) to my favorite character, Diana Taylor (Heather sold her baby Steven Lars to Diana and Peter Taylor; the Taylors called him “P.J.” for Peter… Read more »

Thank you, my dear friend. You’re too kind. As yourself, I love Heather. Hmmmm; a thought just came to me….I seem to be attracted to weirdos: Heather, Faison, Liesl, Nina….LOL. I like all of the above. What does that say about me? But, Heather is a treat, for sure!! She seems to have perfected the crazed woman from ‘another planet’. Robin also was part of the AMC cast. I am sure you know that. I remember (I was still at University) watching her cooky rendition of “Mirror Janet”. What a hoot. So, James, I eat-up every second she’s on air.… Read more »

James excellent posts and thanks for the additions to mine explaining more of the Heather/Taylor storyline that i left out…not well lately so i keep my posts short…wow, you made me travel back in time even more to a much better GH…i liked Brooke Bundy since she appeared on Days as Rebecca North where she was involved with baby drama before joining GH but Valerie Starret was so cool and beautiful as Diana they should have kept her…she could had an affair with the much younger Jeff just like Jesse had down decade earlier with Phil Brewer!!!

@Rebecca1,
You’re probably right, Rebecca. Weeks ago, I did say that Hayden and Liz were either full or half sisters. While I thought both ‘girls’ were borne of Naomi; could very well be that, as I said also weeks ago, Naomi stepped out on Raymond Berlin with Jeff.
For once, I take credit of being the first to post the ‘girls’ were sisters….followed closely by Jimh. LOL.

As a huge fan of GH in the eighties, I am thrilled anytime I see any of the “vets” together. I hope his stay isn’t to brief. It was nice seeing him with Ms Francis, even if it was only for that brief scene. Just hearing that wonderful Australian accent makes me all warm and woozy inside. I got double douses oof Tristan, since he was also back on Y&R with Jill and Cane as well. Two Aussie accents for the price of one. LOVE IT!!

Liz and Hayden are sisters-Haydens mom drugged Jeff and raped him resulting in Hayden…Liz will be found unconcious and the diamonds missing-one diamond will be found on Franco and Liz will suspect he knocked her out and stole the diamonds,especially when unemployed Franco comes into money-the money is from Heather’s secret stash but Francoweenie cant tell her that..Kevin will be with Lucy when Laura returns just as Laura says she forgives Kevin…Kevin will help Laura search for Spenser who was kidnapped from boarding school and they suspect Valentin is responsible unaware it was his own father the thought dead Nik… Read more »

This show is a complete mess. Ava just happens to have pills that look exactly like Morgan’s bi-polar meds so that he won’t notice the switch? No one thinks it a bit odd that Avery’s nanny Deirdre has the kid at the library when it’s pitch dark in the middle of summer? Anyone with half a brain would know that means it is waaaaaaay past the kid’s bedtime. Nicholas’ funeral is held off-camera and the writers make a point of mentioning that Lucky was there but nothing is said of Lesley being there for her grandson’s funeral?

Oh, Alan…thanks for putting ‘things’ in perspective. I did think of the outrageousness of the ‘incidents’ you bring to the fore….little Avery out at a late hour etc. But, the most incredible and so far out of the realm of reality is Laura’s behavior. This is the second time the writers have made Laura look like a stooge….a sort-of detached mother. First was her lack of emotion the “first” time Nik died. Yeah, yeah, many balked at this….excusing her by saying she was keeping strong for Spencer……Or, that she was in a state of shock. But, the second time around… Read more »

You’re right on all points, Celia. I do have to say that they are at least giving Laura some decent dialogue. A few weeks ago, she was poignant and realistic when she told Traci that she has used men to define her and as long she did this, she was unable to truly grow up. Laura said,”I discovered that as long as someone treats you like a child, you keep acting like a child.” The conversation between Traci and Laura was character driven, real and wise in its way. I am not sure who is writing the dialogue but for… Read more »

@Harry.
Very true, Harry. Laura should have continued in this vein, but, typically, the writers swerve by minimizing her sense of self.
Genie Francis is possibly the best talent on GH. She has honed her craft and owned every word in thar conversation with Tracy.
Nonetheless, a couple of days later, the writers decided for her to take two steps back.

Yeah, Marie. What Allen said about the pill…..Ava must have a stockpile in her ‘Pharmacy’. Why don’t TPTB just divide Morgan: half to Ava and half to Kiki. Ava still has the hots for him. Well, for all of ‘her’ men, actually. Alley. Purr. I am so sick of Morgan and his bipolar issues. This is a real malady, with many who suffer from this disorder. But, TPTB have taken it so far, it is becoming a joke. It is not fair to represent all peoples with this medical issue to be presented as such. Morgan is so fragile….as far… Read more »

I hate to see Laura leave the canvas just as she was getting more story and more air time. Oh well, I guess it’s written in her contract that she gets this time off each year. I look forward to her return. I look forward to all of Tristan’s stories. I wish their scenes were longer and I wish they had had more of a warm reunion. Given the stories their characters brought to the canvas 35 years ago (the Ice Princess/Cassadines/Haunted Star), it would seem like they would have hugged longer and maybe spent some more time giving condolences… Read more »

Tristan was smooth baby!

Laura hasn’t been laid in years and you can tell by her school girl reaction to Kevin’s notes! First’ JELLY screwed this up by having them sleep together too soon! Secondly, too early to throw a wrench into their new relationship!

Roger Howarth should be embarrassed to cash his check! Complete garbage!

Sending Spencer away is stupid! Why would a mother who just “Buried” her son ship away her grandson so far away if he is in such huge danger? I guess Spencer will be off camera for a while and come back as a teen! Dumb!

That’s because they aged Josselyn ! Spencer is gone he will come back as a teenager but Liz’s kids will stay the same the nightmare goes on and on!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Courtesy/ABC

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
