GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Hugs Emma As Two Day Halloween Episodes Unfold!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

We think General Hospital out did themselves with their Halloween Spooktacular episodes this past Thursday and Friday!  The writers must have had a field day and plenty of fun, concocting what each character/actor would wear for the Halloween party at GH.  In addition, figuring out what evil baddies Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and Faison (Anders Hove) would wear while stuck at Wyndemere supposedly watching Robin (Kimberly McCullough)!  And of course, we knew somewhere in here the “Anna” or “Duke” prosthetic mask had to make its re-emergence on to the scene!

But the big story continues to be, and was, Robin escaping Wyndemere in costume and mask and heading to General Hospital in disguise.  She first bumps into Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) and pretends she is Spanish, but is overwhelmed by hearing and seeing her dear friend.   Epiphany decides to introduce Robin to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), because she too speaks Spanish!  Once inside the party,  Robin see Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer)  and that Emma’s new suitors,  Spencer and Cameron spill juice all over Emma’s costume as Dyna Girl.  Ever the mother, Robin decides to grab some water to help get the stain out off Emma’s costume!  After she does that, Emma hugs her in an emotional moment.    Next, Emma introduces Sabrina to Robin, and says Sabrina is her new mommy!   That is too much for Robin to handle, and she runs off.     Patrick (Jason Thompson) decides to go after her.   Will he finally see Robin?  That was the Friday cliffhanger!

Meanwhile, as we suspected, Obrecht donned her “Anna” mask when Duke (Ian Buchanan) stumbled upon her when coming to Wyndemere to speak with Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) in search for clues as to what has happened to Anna.   Faux “Anna” claims to be on Faison and Obrecht’s trail.  Duke (Ian Buchanan)  figures out that Faison and Obrecht could be hiding in the space in the wall and in the tunnel at Wyndemere, and falls into the trap! He is confronted by Beetlejuice Faison with gun!

There were so many great costumes as part of the Halloween storylines:  Carly (Laura Wright) as the Alley Cat, Sabrina as Electra Woman, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) as Snow White, and let’s not forget about Heather Webber (Robin Mattson), Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), or Obrecht’s get-ups either!  And the guys … well we loved Franco’s (Roger Howarth) Andy Warhol, Brad’s (Parry Shen) Cereal Killer, Patrick’s Indiana Jones, Faison’s Beetlejuice, Derek Wells (William deVry) as Zorro, and Nikolas’ (Tyler Christopher) gothic prince.  There were also plenty of sub-plots and snappy dialog and repartee throughout the two days Halloween episodes.

So, did GH deliver one of the better Halloween-themed soap episodes in recent memory?   What did you think of the moment when Robin hugged Emma?  Do you think there is any chance Robin will see Patrick on Monday’s episode?  What did you think of Carly and Franco?  Are you rooting for these two to give into their passion for each other?  Is Derek just a red-herring romance for Carly?  Is Heather being motherly to Franco, or twisted?  Will Nikolas soon figure out that his sister Lulu’s bio-baby is probably in the hands of Britt?   Weigh-in!

I will put up with a lot of things that don’t make sense on soaps. But I can’t stand when writers drag out a story for Sweeps. This story is so badly written, even this longterm soap watcher rolls my eyes.

Ron Carlivati needs to learn to stop making all characters stupid to drag out stories. I do not believe Anna & Robert are being written as so incompetent. Those 2 would have been out of that lab in 10 minutes if this was a writer who knew Robert or Anna.

Sorry to disagree with you…this show keeps many of us tuning in tomorrow…I like that Anna and Robert arent perfect…if they got out in 10 min. there wouldnt be any suspense and no reason for Robin not to reveal herself…and im sure this is a good way for them to rekindle the old flame…everything cant happen over night…what takes weeks for us viewers to watch unfold is often just a few days for soap characters…anyway this is what soap operas were meant to be…stories that take time to unfold…you have a right to your opinion and i respect that but… Read more »

jimh (leave it to beaver), I so agree with you and couldn’t have put it better myself. I agree also that everyone is entitled to his/her opinion but my goodness, GH has been 1000% than it has been just a year ago and when you consider that it was on the cusp on cancellation….sigh…some people don’t remember that. By having said that, viewers are always going to like/hate/love what is on screen and you shouldn’t have to settle if you don’t like something. I just think that some of the criticism that Frank and Ron get is just extreme. GH… Read more »

I agree with you jimh(leave it to beaver).. I totally disagree w/Emma. If you fell this way don’t watch it. It is as simple as that. I enjoy watching GH each day and find it exciting & entertaining !

I’ve thought for a long time that the PCPD is written as incompentent. I was hoping this would change with Anna being the Commissioner. Robert is no where near incompentent. Dante comes off as a doofys. I wish the PCPD and WSB solved more cases, myself. Other than that, I loved the Halloween scenes at Wyndemere. Love Derek/Julian, Franco, and Nik. The only storyline that I cringe at is the ridiculous “triangle” between the two village idiots, nu Morgan and Kiki, and Michael. BORING and no electricity whatsoever.

Carly should keep that hairstyle…she looked sexy as a cat, MEOW! Heather’s makeup in some scenes…imo…made her look like Bette Davis in ‘Whatever Happened To Baby Jane’…with that knife i would have dressed her as the ‘mother’ in Psycho! I liked Sabrina as a blonde…she kinda reminded me of Amy Vining! Faison and Dr.O …i liked there costumes but id made them Boris and Natasha, or Gomez and Morticia, or Herman and Lily, or as a nod to former abc soaps Barnabas Collins and Dr. Julia Hoffman or someone really scary like JFP and Brian Frons…lol! Suprisingly, teens Molly, Rafe,… Read more »

Especially Dr. O.! I cannot imagine that Anders will stick around indefinitely, but good golly, Ms. Gati MUST stay!!!! She is such an absolute treasure….one thing that would make a fab and funny storyline development would be for Faison (before he escapes or is recaptured) to have to marry Liesl so that she can’t testify against him in the future! Right now, she is so loaded for bear after his rude, ruthless rejection, that if anyone would have the (documented) goods on all his years of evil doing, it would be her!!! Can you just imagine such a wedding taking… Read more »

I did miss ME (Silas) as a vampire and KM (Sam) as his bride! But I guess that already has been done “to death”….LOL! As for Faison and Dr. O…..they are so talented and versatile, they could have been any number of characters and done them all justice, a sign of true professionals!!!! Those two have raised the bar of excellence for each and every GH cast member with their acting abilities and can-do attitudes!!! Love, love, LOVE them!!!!!

I LOVED the two Halloween shows!!! Well done GH!!! Thank you!!! I have to say… I know the Robin story line was and is compelling and should be the front runner… but I was overcome with how much I loved Anders/Faison as Beetlejuice!!! It was genius and inspired and I just reveled in the antics between Faison and Dr. O and whoever they came in orbit with!!! I actually liked Thursday’s show best because of them. I have watched their scenes over and over and just can’t stop laughing and loving the subtlety of their delightful perfomances!!! I sooooooooooooo want… Read more »

Really enjoyed the Halloween episodes. Faison as Beetlejuice was a highlight. Anders Hove is so awesome, I really hope they find a way to keep him on the show after this storyline concludes.

Every successful soap needs some comedy and light-hearted stuff mixed in with the drama, which is something that the previous regime on GH always seemed to forget.

Port Charles – Trick or “TREAT” Carly – “Purring ‘her’ “HOT” kitten(s) LOL she gets them all.

The actress who plays little Emma (Scorpio) Drake is just as talented as she is adorable! I love her scenes with Patrick as her father. She has more talent than some of the adult actors on the show (nuMorgan, Kiki-double ugh)! I absolutely adore this little actress and her scenes. Faison as Beetlejuice made me laugh out loud, as did Obrecht’s comment about dressing up Baby Ben as Rosemary’s Baby and wanting Faison to dress up as The Hoff. I love this pair. Great comedic team with great comedic timing! Loved Carly’s cat suit, too, and her chemistry with both… Read more »

It was the extremely high arching of Holly’s brows that I found to be most shocking….they served up an expression of constant surprise!

Been loving GH the last several days (Patrick, Sabrina, Emma, Robin, Dr. O, Cesar, Luke, Tracy). Loved the Elektra Woman and Dyna Girl costumes on Sabrina and Emma. But soon enough Kiki, Sonny, and Franco will be back! (Yuck!!!)

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
