GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Finds Out Jason Is Dead Courtesy Of Faison!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

In another heart-stopping Friday cliffhanger episode of General Hospital, two major stories had some dynamic moments and they intensified.

First, alone with Faison (Anders Hove), Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is lamenting that her dear friend Jason (formerly Steve Burton) will come save her once he realizes she is alive and at Wyndemere!  Since Anna (Finola Hughes) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) are captive in the lab at Cassadine Island, Jason will eventually come and kill Faison and bring her back to Port Charles!

Only Faison hurts Robin in the worst possible way, revealing he shot Jason in the back and pushed into the pier and he is dead! Not believing him, Robin looks it up online that verifies that Jason is presumed dead.  Heartbroken and devastated over the loss of Jason, who willed her to live and move on with her life and towards the arms of Patrick (Jason Thompson), Faison and Robin have an emotional showdown.   Later, Robin is hit with another low blow when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) return from a visit for Ben to General Hospital and Britt reveals that Patrick is engaged to be married to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo)! Big kudos to the performance of Kimberly McCullough for making us recall the deep relationship Robin shared with Jason.  Now we ask, how much can Robin take before she will just break?  It’s bad news after bad news for the young heroine!

Elsewhere, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds out with conclusive evidence that Derek Wells (William deVry) is indeed Julian Jerome! And we also learn in a conversation between a locked-up Anna and Robert, that Robert knew and had a hand in Julian Jerome cutting a deal with the WSB to save his life.  Julian AKA Derek plans on killing Morgan (Bryan Craig) since he knows who he really is, but after Morgan gets riled up after seeing Sonny and Michael (Chad Duell) together as father and son, he tells Julian that he wants to bring down his father and he wants “in” on the destruction of Sonny!

So, what did you think of Robin learning the news of Jason’s death?  Did you expect that the powers-that-be would address it as this point in the storyline?  And, what of Sonny learning the identify of Derek Wells?  What will happen next?  Comment below?

I recognize Robin, I recognize Faison, I recognize Anna but sorry I still don’t recognize Robert. I don’t think anyone has been able to write for this great character since the late Gloria Monty may she rest in peace.

Hi, I’m curious what aspects of Robert you’re citing from the past. I agree that he was written as a buffoon when he and Luke went on those adventures to the Markham Islands with the monkey. But I recognize this Robert, especially Friday when he was calling Duke “Lavery” like he always did and not believing that he had gone straight, and lamenting how a guy with the name “Jerry Jacks” got the best of them. If you were going to mention that he’s not romancing Anna like he used to (personally I liked his romance of Katherine Delafield more,… Read more »

Well I recognize Robert and happy he is back and out of his coma. Anna & Robert aren’t going to die soon at anytime. They will get out of the lab soon.

How much am i loving GH right now?? … VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brit and Robin as friends? Oh yeah !!!! Take that Sabwwwina 🙂 Love love love all of GH right now .. Robin, Ava, Morgan,Julian, Lucy, Anna, Luke and Tracy, all of it ! well except Sabrina.. she can go click boom

Right on, GhLover…..I also believe that Britt and Robin could become fast friends, as they share the same derision for Obrecht and Faison, not to mention what is obviously going to be the mutual goal for Patrick to reunite with his true love…..me thinks that this would be an especially beneficial way to rehabilitate and redeem Britt in the eyes of the viewers, not to mention the proper Prince Nicky!!! And it would be ever so delicious if the divine Dr. Westbourne were the one to put the tko on the GBWB’s barmy bethrothal!!! Poetic…..even Dear Mutta would be proud… Read more »

The writing has been seamless and the acting flawless. Kudos to all involved for dignifying the soap opera genre so superlatively! I have believed and maintain my belief that Robin’s efforts to reunite with Patrick may circuitously ebb and flow until the actual nuptials between Patrick and Sabrina. Given the underlying tenacity of Corinthos allegiance to family, I believe Morgan will travel a deadly course with Julian/Derek yet ultimately defer to blood allegiances and try and deter Sonny’s destruction.

I thought the writing for all the characters has been good not great but close enough to how I think of them … I’m very fond of Anna / Robert they feel real .you know I was probably supposed to be sad for Robin learning about Jason but I found it rather compelling and exciting …Robin could have acted more convincing ly…….. By the way please keep Tony Geary in your arsenal of actors …..

Another great week of GH!! I usually get caught up on an entire week’s worth of shows on the weekend, and usually I watch one or two episodes, then go do something else, and come back and finish later. Today, I started with Monday and I was glued to the TV, and before I knew it, I was finished with the entire week in one sitting, lol. Excellent storytelling, I love when they bring a lot of characters together under one big umbrella storyline. And needless to say, brilliant acting from Kimberly McCullough, Anders Hove, Sebastian Roche, Finola Hughes, Tristan… Read more »

Loved Friday’s episode!!! Faison and Dr. O were fabulous as cranky… almost child like… relatives! Loved Faison with Robin… sorry to have her hear about Jason that way! Then about Patrick’s engagement… she is just not getting any good news! She’s so close to home and yet so far away! Can’t wait to get Anna and Robert out of the lab and back in PC. Looking forward to seeing Sonny and Julian’s showdown. GH is doing great!!!

Aren’t “Faibrecht” just the most delightfully dysfunctional duo of doom ever??? As the pompous Pied Piper of Perfidy to the Machiavellian Mutta, Cesar is one twisted and temperamental mister…what unmitigated gall he demonstrated by demanding his spurned suitor and co-conspirator “cook” him one of his favorite German delicacies….apparently he liked Liesl’s recipes in the kitchen, if not the insane inamorata’s “maskless” affections in the boudoir!!! And giving as good as she got, the steely superwoman responded with a requisitely ruthless retort! Oh well, you know how it is ladies….can’t live with them, can’t live without them!!!

Well I did like the scene between Faison and Robin. The minute I heard Faison say Robin reminds him of her mother I got a chill up my spine, just thinking this guy might transfer his obsession for Anna to Robin. As for Morgan, one has to wonder if the gun in his back was the reason for asking Julian if he could join them. My guess, Morgan is only pretending to join them to save his neck and to find a way to save his father Sonny– but even I am wrong and he is really joining forces it… Read more »

Let me preface this by saying I LOVE GH and I hope it continues for many years to come. And I find EACH storyline compelling….I do like the Jeromes a lot…and I’m looking forward to how they work Morgan into the plot; I love Lucy 😉 and Scot…ISam/Derek/Alexis…Nicolas/Britt…Anna, Robert, Duke.etc, etc…BUT! I miss AJ…I don’t like how they built up his story and then dropped it/him out of existence…I don’t like how they’ve underused Duke, Mac, Felicia., Lucy…all four get just a few lines every few weeks…it’s insulting to them and disappointing to those of us who looked forward to… Read more »

A.J. is supposed to be back for Nov. sweeps…i too would like to see them interwoven more, especially Luke who should be showing Lulu some support during the baby custody storyline…Duke and Anna should be more romantic…currently they just seem like friends…Robert, Duke, Anna triangle would be nice…id like to see Duke and Alexis as a couple!!!

Guest

Reallly? I was hoping for Alexis and Julian…though she did dump Sean because of his mob involvement…but if I remember correctly was dumped by Sonny or she would have stayed with him. As for Duke…I’d like to see them give him much more story…and to amp up the Anna/Duke love affair…

Shay
Guest
Shay

It would seem in terms of “maturity” that Duke and Alexis would make an appropriate couple…he just isn’t quite matched in the “youth genes” department for the “Divine Devane” at this point! Anna and a revitalized Robert (aka, “The Silver Fox!”) have such cool chemistry this time around, so a rekindled romance should not be out of the question for them, particularly if they are trapped in “captivity” for very long!!! On the other hand, locating the right man for Ms. Davis is quite honestly an almost impossible task….NLG has never found another one like Lane Davies as Mason Capwell… Read more »

I see good chemistry between Duke and Alexis…it seems there might be a Carly, Franco and Julian triangle…maybe? Alexis could still be paired with Duke but have feelings for Julian who she’ll probably end up with eventually!!!

Unless Julian “falls”…he’s only using Carly to get to Sonny.

By the way, Julian Jerome is actually only eight years older than his “daughter” Sam. (in real life.) Gotta love soaps…

I absolutely love the character of Robin, having watched her grow up from a smart, strong-willed, resilient little girl to a smart, strong-willed, resilient woman. Kimberly does a superb job! Her acting on this episode was especially great. The death of Jason was one blow and then she was hit with Patrick’s engagement. Bam! I can’t wait to see how she reacts next week.

Love that Britt is supporting Robin. Most unlikly friends but it makes sense cause she hates Sabrina. I like that Brit may help bring robin back to Patrick. Crazy twist!

Kimberly McCullough is a fantastic actress: very real and very natural. She killed those scenes — and even made me remember that time (a year ago?) when Jason was “killed”. As for Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini, or “Cartini”, I have mixed feelings about them. Surely, they’re a vast improvement on the last regime. They’ve brought more balance to storylines and arranged for the return of some beloved vets. However, they are ignoring couples with real chemistry like Franco & Ava, Nikolas & Elizabeth and Sonny & Brenda. (Brenda’s not on canvas, of course, but when she was it was… Read more »

Wow………………….As a 50+ yr vet, I can honestly say the team of Carlivati and Valentini is the BEST thing to happen to GH since the irreplaceable Gloria Monty. What they have done in a year, is leaps and bounds over what JFP did in a decade. The way they have brought back characters from years past, is sheer genius, and the future looks nothing but promising. I have not enjoyed this GH for years. And for those trained actors pointing out the negative aspects of Kimberley McCullough’s Robin, obviously have not watched “Robin” grow up. The character has never been… Read more »

Amen. Gh is the best its been since GLoria Monty! Its a magical time 🙂 New and old characters being developped in such a rich way, like Britta being Faison’s daugther! Congratulations Ron and Frank, i simply cant say it enough. Thank you for Robin’s return, the casting of the divine Maura West and Britta of course!! Loving Gh its no longer a guilty pleasure, its a must watch pleasure 😉

DAYS had a fantastic week with Nicole/Eric, Kristen/Brady and Theresa/Jennifer/JJ. How come they don’t get a page dedicated to that great work? Why must GH get one after nearly every episode? I’m starting to watch GH again, and yes, the direction is good (obvious, frustrating, but good) but it feels like there is favouritism. Not a mention for some outstanding work by DAYS? How could that possibly be? And frankly, I was hoping Robin was talking about Duke. When I started to realize she was glorifying Jason I did what I always did when she sang the praises of Jaseface… Read more »

Hey Shay! My brother’s name is Jason, and he once had a girl come over. Being the absolute twit that she was, she called him “Jaseface”. To this day, many years later, I still tease him with the name and will use it against him when I want to torture him even more. Works everytime :).

It’s my little soap too. I know many consider GH to be because it’s been on the brink of cancellation and “needs the love”, but DAYS is in just as much peril! It’s now being renewed year to year, and those years go by fast. I hope after ED exits they can keep the momentum going. The writers seem to be doing a good job with almost every story on canvas- making them interesting, connecting many characters, giving great hooks and allowing them to organically spawn other stories. So I have hope it will continue. But if it doesn’t, then… Read more »

Great story behind the “Jaceface,” Jules! (Guess your mom liked names that started with a “J” then?) I simply surmised that you came up with it to dead-right describe the single stony expression that SB wore throughout his stint as Mr. Morgan….little did I know! Thanks for sharing…. ; )

I hope that bringing back the dynamic of Duke & Anna with Robert via the Derek Wells reveal is used as major story. There is nothing that would make me happy to tune in more. So much history there and Friday’s ep was all the more captivating due to that thread tying the ep together.

Okay here’s where I have a gaping plot hole question. If Robin can get online, why the heck can’t she send an email to um… I don’t know… her hubby? Was that explained earlier or is RC just being his usual sloppy self?

Robin could not send an e-mail with Faison watching.. He was watching her, ya know..
and it would take Robin a bit of time to create an e-mail account or accesses one and Faison would not allow that to happen, we all know that.

I love the days on GH when I do NOT have to see Sonny or Carly or Franco on my screen. The Dimpled Don and Company make it a chore to stay tuned in. In terms of the Jeromes, I’d rather see the Alexis and Sam side of the potential story than anything to do with Sonny, Morgan, Michael and Kiki. I just don’t care enough about them to follow what they know or do.

Let’s get back to the Robin story and all it entails, even if it means Sabrina and Felix on my screen.

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

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.
