GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Did You Think Of Robin’s Reaction To Finding Out Anna Had A Secret Son?

Courtesy/ABC

How was Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) going to tell her daughter, Robin (Kimberly McCullough) that she had a child with the notorious Cesar Faison?  After all, he was the madman that kidnapped Robin, and played havoc with the lives of Patrick and Emma, not to mention all of the horrible things he did to her mother!

The scenes played out on Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, when Anna came to Berkeley to tell Robin the truth, but now Finn (Michael Easton) has also come along for emotional support, and to be there for the woman he has fallen in love with.

When Robin shows up at Anna’s hotel room, she is surprised, but pleased to see Finn is tow as well.  He leaves to give Anna some time alone to deliver the bombshell to Robin, that she has a brother … Peter August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey).

Anna is direct and admits to Robin that Peter is her son with Faison.  Robin is shocked and heartbroken.  Anna goes on to tell Robin that Faison did not rape her when Robin asks her, but says she got tangled up in a situation due to her early career as a spy.  She tells Robin she had the child, but gave it away, and kept this secret buried, and never told anyone till recently.

Robin is trying to process what her mother is telling her.  Concerned about her family’s safety, Anna assures her that Peter only has a grudge against his mother, An emotional Anna says that she never wanted her daughter to look at her the way she’s looking at her now.  Robin realizes when she gave birth that Anna was also overcome thinking about the son she gave away, but hid it from her.

Robin says she understands all of this rationally, but tells Anna that her mom isn’t the person she thought she was.  Anna insists that what they have had together as this tight bond between mother and daughter has always been real. An upset Robin, listens to Anna tell her that she is the same person she always was. That is a hard pill for Robin to swallow, and she tells her mother she needs to leave and have some time to digest all of this.  Anna tells Robin she loves her.  Robin also tells Anna that in return, but exits anyway.

So, what did you think of Robin’s reaction to the news that she has a half-brother … and that Anna had a secret son with Faison? Comment below.

Well in my opinion nothing should surprise Robin when it comes to Anna and secrets she faked her death along with Robert for most of Robins teen years. Oh and yes Robin did’t know Anna was her real mother until age 6 and Mac raised Robin to be the woman she is today. Speaking of JY/Mac another misused actor and character.

Love John York. The way they literally dumped him from the show was disgusting. One minute he’s a constant presence; police chief, gets thrown out when Finola came back, they give him a bar which we barely see, then quietly goes into the night…

Beloved character and actor. Didn’t deserve that and I can’t imagine with his looks, charm, likability, history, relationships that they couldn’t do anything more with “Mac.”

I couldn’t agree more, Rebecca. John York’s Mac comes off as warm and affable. I know when he comes on the screen, I am always happy to see him. Saying that he’s a sight for sore eyes would be an understatement. We had Robert Scorpio, Mac’s big brother, on for an entire week and yet those two brothers never crossed paths? And on a shallow note, York has aged beautifully. I love that he allowed his hair to grow white–he actually looks younger for allowing it.

Hey, Harr…always loved John York and his Mac character. Can’t say there was ever a scene or story he was in that I didn’t like. He exuded warmth, hearth, family; a constant loving presence for Maxi and Georgie, great brother, fantastic comraderie with Kevin; his days “waiting for Felicia” to return. He, like a few others, IS GH! Unfortunately, when on the very few moments they “grant” him a walk-on, (because that’s all it really seems to me) he gets what? One line? Two? A hug? I can’t even imagine the anger, hurt to be cast aside like that with… Read more »

Bec–I have been greatly disappointed that we have yet to hear Carly say,”Now I have a whole new respect and understanding of what I put AJ though.” I actually thought they had come up with this storyline on purpose–as if to echo the whole AJ-pushed-Carly-down-the-stairs allegation but only in reverse. BUT NO! No one has mentioned it. Not Carly, not Jason.
Disappointed!

Give them time. I am sure the writers have read your comment and said to themselves “She’s right”.

OK, Carly was a terror when she first came to the show but she has received payback more than she deserves.

In all honesty, I am not liking this story only because we have known Anna for over 30 years and to be hit with this is a little overwhelming. I know the character needed something to do but I wish they could have figured out a different story for her to be in. If they were going to play this card, it should have been done years ago.I will still watch because the scenes are good but if i had my way, the story would have gone in a different direction.

Anna telling Robin the hidden family dark secret of her life was void of emotions.
And, it was void of drama, expressionless, actually.
Telling a daughter that her brother is of Faison seed there would have been way-way-way more emotion and not looking like doorknobs.

GH can’t even create high intensity personal drama, a really tight WHOOOOA WOW moment.
It was dull and a big eehhhh.

What do I think: that these two actresses are so MeToo, so strong, vulnerable and attractive on screen as mother and daughter and I wish they had even a half decent story. It’s what fans deserve and what the rest of the entertainment industry (films, PT) is desperatley trying to serve up to audiences while GH’s PTB are stuck in the 2000s with their misogyny and mistreatment of a women’s genre.

.Anna needs a good story and this isnt it..i hope Anna was brainwashed into thinking she is Peter’s mom but it turns out he is the son of her twin sister..that would help but not much…also im tired of expanded families for certain characters…too many newbies are taking over the show which is why i barely watch…Finn was better as a single character without family which makes him more interesting even if all he has is that silly Lizard-almost mysterious when you dont know much about him…i miss brooding John McBain…anyway we have Maxi…and Mac and Felicia arent really around-two… Read more »

Heard Dominic (Dante) may be leaving. First it was implied he was, then wasn’t, now yes…I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Hope not but I think it might be so. They’ve underutilized him for years.

Anna Devane, the Emma Peel of daytime is one of my five favorite soap characters of all time. I will put her up there with Adam Chandler, Victoria Lord, Laura Spencer and Robert Scorpio. So it’s telling that I am fast forwarding through her scenes including this one described above. I just cannot watch the writers play fast and loose with this iconic character’s history in order to force feed viewers a new character. And now we have to endure yet another character redemption storyline which seems to be GH’s formula now days. I just can’t with this story. This… Read more »

The reveal to Robin was;
Emotion-less .. Drama-less .. it was a fail.
It came off as if they both were recovering from a lobotomy.

Oh my gosh, su….too funny. A lobotomy and castration would be perfect for Perv Bensch. Considering the gravitas of this situation, TPTB should not have been so tempted as to have a steamy, sexual interlude between Griffin and Kiki….yet, perhaps, this was their intention….they purposely chose this opportune time to make Kiki the scapegoat, whose reputation will be besmirched….splattered on every hospital wall. There will be a baby coming—what say you, su? A baby!! The issue of a deliriously delicious, drunken, one-nighter? Well, not so drunk he….Griffin, who recalls every minute detail…his mind can’t help re-playing that reel. Heads will… Read more »

Hey there, CeeCeeGirl! I agreed with your prescription for what ails Bensch and suggested that the phenomenal Dr. O. and her trusty knife were just the things for the job on another thread, but the post didn’t make it online! Still, it is a far more palatable—and expedient—-scenario than another boring Alexis storyline centering around so-called female empowerment…..As far as Griffin and Kiki’s bambino shock around the corner? I’m all for it! I’m sooo tired of Ava and her toyboys….time for one of them to find an age-appropriate female with which to build a future! (And yes, along with Alexis,… Read more »

Hey, Shay, My comment to you did not post either…..perhaps, it will later on. Anyway…..I am not affected by age differences on soaps any longer, considering it is becoming the norm even in real life. I wish Kiki were Liesl’s great niece, Shaybelle…..the fact would compel her to make a eunuch out of Bensch. Ava was good with Paul, but the ‘great ones’ ran through that character with a well-honed sword!! As far as Alexis? I do hope TPTB do not disappoint. She has reached a level of self-respect…..an introspective examination, if you will. Her emotional state is not so… Read more »

“Recovering from a lobotomy”? HA!Suoo, this actually made me laugh aloud. Why is it that such comments as this one used to make me so angry and now it just makes me laugh? Maybe I have mellowed in my old age. I thought the acting was just fine but I hate this story with the heat of a thousand suns. How many times do we have to endure Anna tearfully explaining the unexplainable? If Anna had to have had a grown child suddenly pop up, why couldn’t Griffin turn out to be her son with Duke? That would have been… Read more »

Other than Kimberly delivering another fab performance, this story is useless. Can’t wait for Anna to find out it was all a mistake. Make Griffin her son and, definitely, not by Faison. …. Sooooo mismatched……Faison was puny, Anna is very petite…from whence did Peter hail? Brings to mind “Blue Bloods”, where the Commish ( the father–Tom Selleck) is huge, almost brutish looking, and his sons are no taller than 5’5″….but, the daughter towers over her brothers. Gee….how do they pick and choose?? I have not been watching GH for long, but this must be one of the most nauseatingly, stupid… Read more »

They’ve taken away Anna’s character–and made her something she is not. Not believable for one moment. Violating iconic characters is NOT the way to win fans. 🙁

I thought it was quietly effective. Robin has always been calm. She shows her emotions but in a subdued, thoughtful way; which is what she did. Out of respect for Anna, she listened, tried to understand, rationalized why Anna got in that situation and wasn’t accusatory. But the hurt, shock, sense of betrayal and confusion was all there. She was thoughtful as always, assuring Anna that she loved her but obviously in need of space and distance. I thought Anna’s reaction was well done, too. Hurt, fear that she’s lost her daughters’ trust..the bond they have. This wasn’t going to… Read more »

giving up her baby, and never mentioning him to anyone… was the only way for Anna to believe that he would be safe (from Faison),… she could not tell anyone.

about the only time I took notice – was when Robin was asking Anna… when you were holding my babies ( Emma & Noah ) were you thinking of your son? and I didn’t know about it ? were the GH writers – trying _ to nail this.. as in forget about it and move on? no womans intuition? the look on Anna face was dead pan any way. from DEAD PAN to ( well; gee ; Finola Hughes sure smiles a lot ) Anna has never looked so giddy, fresh, alive down under, AND it’s ALL for Michael Easton..… Read more »

I love her reaction, Anna has turned into a mess and Valentin has enjoyed every minute. Peter is filled with so much hate. I wish he would turn on Valentin and give him his just desserts.

Finola is ALWAYS superb, always subtle. Her scenes with Kimberly are a treat to watch. The storyline is heartbreaking, for fans, for the actors who are obviously not thrilled with it. Finola’s making the best of it, she is a consumate professional. The writers should have had Robin come back to the hotel the next day, and the day after that, share her feelings with Anna and hash it out. Robin may have been shocked but she would never just walk away from Anna. The mean too much to each other. Its unbelievable how the writers disrespect these two characters.… Read more »
