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.

Exec Prod Frank Valentini On GH’s Return with New Episodes: “There is a Bang and a Surprise and a Twist”

Monday, General Hospital will finally be airing a new episode – the first in months due to COVID-19 – which had previously shut down production of the show.  Now with safety protocols in place, GH will become the first ABC network show back on TV with original installments.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to ABC 7 Los Angeles’ entertainment guru George Pennacchio on the legacy soap opera’s return and picking up the story where things left off.

Valentini offered up for Monday’s episode: “The very first few seconds of the show, I think, will blow a lot of the audience’s mind because there’s a big surprise that we inserted in.”

Meanwhile, viewers know that their is a major custody case going on for Wiley/Jonah, and that Mike’s (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s could wrap in the coming months if the story continues as it had before the shut down.

However, Valentini shared that fans have some very exciting things to look forward to on GH: “There is a bang and a surprise and a twist and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

In addition, Pennacchio reports that the GH Nurses’ Ball will return sometime in August, which usually airs in May, but didn’t, because of COVID-19 this past spring.

As to how GH will handle the love scenes, the kisses, and the intimate moments between characters which are a staple of the genre during the health crisis, Frank expressed:”Physical intimacy is limited.  We’re going to leave a lot more to the imagination.”

So, what surprises do you think are in store as previewed by Valentini when GH returns with new episodes? Comment below.

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.
