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!

Faison — Richard Simmons— both are scary and a little deranged— I can see why you got them confused. LOL.

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 »

it’s “sssooo” much FUN to read and share… our commitment to Serial day in & day out year after year decades plus I can’t celebrate enough – GH and DAYS “FANS” heck… CBS is in the fold it’s awestruck to real… with how producers, writers, directors’, cast employees… jive, mix, stir, collaborate… Leslie Webber starts it off we’re treated to shakespearian, he can do anything… Faison and lo and behold… Snow white capers and dons Rebecca Herbst and this was just the start of the show… i’m starstruck at how complete and pulled together… GH production encompassed “their” intent… kudos… 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. Franco/Julian Franco – “Andy Warhol” – Perplexing “Know Me” Heather – “Little Red Riding Hood meets ‘who’s the Big Bad Wolf” NOW ?!?! as she ensnares ‘her’ Treats Sabrina – “earth girls are easy” “shazaam” click-boom dizzy confection Julian – “Zorro” what a conundrum! “whipped Up Frenzy!” to Savor – wet Patrick – “to the rescue” Indiana Jones – in more ways than one….(Scrubs!) hallelujah! you look at him… and he’s husband material… what can you say… and he’s Robins’ Brad – Felix:… Read more »

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!!!)

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
