GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Tells Anna She Is Moving To California Along With Patrick & Emma!

Courtesy/ABC

We were wondering when this scene between the all-time best mother/daughter duo in soaps, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin), would come to fruition.  That moment happened on Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital.  After Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin break the news to their daughter Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) that they are all moving to California, because mommy and daddy got new jobs, it then falls upon Robin to in turn break the news to Anna.

In a scene alone with her mother, Robin informs Anna of the big move and her plans.  With tears streaming down her face, Anna realizes she must let Robin go make a new start with her family after so much time has elapsed that the Drake family have all been together.  As much as this hurts Anna so much to have to let Robin go, and to say goodbye to her granddaughter, Robin explains they are only an airflight away.    Anna says she will visit.   Then Robin asks Anna to come with her!  Anna says she can’t.  She has business in Port Charles she must take care of.   This also plays into Anna’s sorrow over losing Duke, and now having to say goodbye to the Drake clan.

When Patrick and Emma join the scene and the conversation, the viewers and Anna learn at the same time that Robin, Patrick, amd Emma must leave tomorrow for Berkeley.  They even have temporary housing already lined-up for them.   Emma puts her foot down and says they are not leaving Port Charles until Patrick and Robin have a wedding!  We fade to black.

So, what did you think of the heart-tugging performances of Finola Hughes along with Kimberly McCullough?  Are you ready for the Drake grand finale? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

It’s been so long since Patrick and Robin have been together that their reunion and move seem like a blur. We knew it was coming; Finola Hughes’ performance with Robin today was excellent. Sorry to see the Drakes go, but the door is open to their returning with the way they’re exiting. Glad little Emma put her foot down about the wedding!

They absolutely are the all-time best mother/daughter duo in soap history. It is amazing to think that when they first started working together, Kim was all of seven and, now, thirty years later is still playing the part. That is why their scenes are so powerful, have so much resonance, so much subtext, so much realness: this relationship on-screen has been a crucial one in daytime for three decades! The accretion of history and memories deeply infuses, and makes poignant, not only their scenes together, but deeply infuses, and makes poignant, our responses as viewers to those scenes. Layers of… Read more »

Their scenes seemed more real then written . The same feeling came from scenes with Robert and Robin. All of these scenes touched my heart as this family was the reason I watched years ago. I continued watching because the show is great. (I never lost hope that Robert and Anna would come back to us when they were presumed dead so long ago. When Anna finally walks off into the sunset many years from now I hope it will be with her resl love, Robert.

Maybe it’s just me but it always seems the Scorpios, since Robert and Anna, always have a reason for not staying together for long as a family. Other priorities take precidence. I realize why GH has to put Patrick, Robin and Emma in another city due to Kim and Jason leaving. Because Robin and Patrick could have even started up Michael Q’s clinic where the old Spencer home used to be, for instance. And yet again, something is always more important for Anna than moving to be with her daughter after she’s been away for four years…mainly due to the… Read more »

I’m going to hold back and be as nice as possible. Today’s show was total conversation, just conversations.. A lot of lengthy talking, saying nothing. Patrick’s exit with Robin is horribly dull. There is not one memorable moment. I checked boards, I was bored, and they are absent of most anything Patrick & Robin, that is how completely spiritless it was and is. GH has become a shell of itself, it is sluggish and total lethargic. If GH were blood it would be deathly anemic. GH will soon be on a respirator if it continues as it is. It is… Read more »

You may be right, su. But, we can make an exception today, as TPTB surely did. This was a send-off day for long-time characters we may never again see. So, I didn’t mind. Nonetheless, the ‘conversations’ and the just milling around confirmed, for the umpteenth time, how classy both Anna and Robin are. We did get a glimpse of what Nik has planned for Jason, though. So obvious. Nik will propose to forget the criminal assault charges, if Jason gives him his ELQ shares. I hope Jason had an inkling when Nik called him, and came prepared; hidden wires and… Read more »

It was perfect. It sets up Emma coming back to PC to visit grandma and if Anna wants to go off camera for a break or Finola leaves, they can write her off moving to Berkeley. No more ridiculous “Dead” stories with legendary characters! Duke Lavery [Cough cough!]

At least the SCRUBS fans are getting what they hoped for—how many times on one hand can we count the number of times our favorites have gotten the “happily-ever-after” ending?

Agreed, terrific scene between Anna and Robin. Brought home my own memories of moving away from home and saying goodbye to my mother. And these two have always been so special. But…Robin and Patrick BOTH get new jobs AND housing in ONE day!!! Just as Robin rediscovers her family and friends after a forced, multi-year absence she wants to move away just because Olbrecht won’t give her her old job back at the same pay? There is another hospital in Port Charles, right? As well as a big university. Robin couldn’t find a way to practice and do research in… Read more »

Good episode. I am gonna miss Emma so much and hope she returns to visit Anna during spring/summer break. They didn’t give Anna that big new house for nothing so my guess is Emma will have her own room there. I am glad that Emma pointed out how them moving away would effect her Grandma. Finola Hughes was once was amazing in her scenes with Kim McCullough. Loving the Crimson storyline with Nina, Maxie, Dillon, and Julian. Stafford and Storms play off each other so well. I like that Nina is so hell bent on making the magazine a success… Read more »

Agreed. Pleased to see a happy ending for the Drakes (and one that seems more reality based than over-the-top capers and sci-fi shenanigans) but it does seem all so rushed and quick, almost without enough time to savor this reunion. But, yes, doors do remain open, and I bet we do see Robin and Emma, at least, return for visits.

I appreciate GH providing a happy ending for Robin and Patrick, but I’ll miss having them onscreen. I wish their new town was a lot closer to Port Charles so that Emma could spend weekends with Anna, lots and lots of weekends. In fact, why couldn’t they go to Mercy Hospital in PC or the newly “discovered” PCU Medical Center, so that Emma and Robin could pop up often? Yes to the best family in soaps – all of them. The acting skills in that foursome are off the charts. Finola and Kimberly have always been magic together. Jason and… Read more »

Just saw Jason saying goodbye to Patrick. It’s like seeing the old Billy saying goodbye to the new Billy.

I am so sad with all the changes. Was hoping Sam and Jason would finally get back together. Is Jason going to be replaced with the original one that plays in the young and the restless?

Anna/Robin’s goodbye is unbarable to watch, it reminds me of having to say goodbye with my beloved mentor, once a year, not knowing when I am going to see her again. I thought maybe it will get easier when we are used to saying goodbye, but it didn’t, I don’t know why we have to go through this over and over, we are twenty thousand miles away from each other. Without her, I wouldn’t even get into university or having a career as an artist. Miss her so much, and will miss this GH family so much too.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
