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’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 »

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!!!)

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Photo: ABC

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
