GH 50 Plans: A Luke & Laura Adventure, Rick Springfield Rocking & A Robin Return Surprise?

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital has  been building towards April’s  50th anniversary of the legendary soap with blast from the past returns, bringing back the once staple of the series, The Nurses’ Ball, and setting the stage for the big “What if?”

What if, Patrick (Jason Thompson) finally declares his love for Ugly Betty Port Charles Style-possibly-blossoming-swan Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), just as “dead” wife Robin (Kimberly McCullough) walks through the doors? Will it happen? What will go down when GH finally stages the Nurses’ Ball on the April 5, 8, and 9 episodes? One thing is for sure Dr. Noah Drake (Patrick’s dad) will be rocking the house when Rick Springfield performs “Jessie’s Girl” at the soiree’!

TV Guide some inside scoop from General Hospital head writer, Ron Carlivati and seven time Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary (Luke) on the big plans.   Here are some excerpts!

Carlivati on if a Robin sighting is possible at the Nurses’ Ball:  “This would in so many ways be the ideal time for Robin to walk through the door. It would be a total game-changer but, while I’m promising a whole lot of surprises at the Nurses Ball, I’m not promising what they’ll be.”

Carlivati on Luke and Laura’s (Genie Francis) adventure, as they hunt to find their daughter Lulu, which leads them to Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), plus there is the disappearance of the Haunted Star:  “We couldn’t celebrate the 50th without another epic Luke and Laura adventure. They’re no longer a couple, and they may never again be a couple, but their love for each other — like GH itself — is still going strong.”

Geary on getting to play high-action adventure one more time:  “These episodes are pure nostalgia — the kind of high-stakes, high-energy, really well-conceived plotting that’s reminiscent of the Luke and Laura glory days!”

So GH fans, what part of the upcoming General Hospital 50th plans are you looking forward to seeing the most?   Do you think Robin will make a return at the Nurses’  Ball?  Weigh-in!

I actually like Patrick & Sabrina together. If Robin comes back she probably wont stick around for long, so why not have Sabrina & Patrick end up together.

Maybe because she too young for him, she acts like a HS girl around him and he looks like a total perv, who looks like he cuold be her father. Its stupid. I’m sorry but I would NEVER EVER accept her with him, NEVER. IF I had to see him with someone else then I would want it to be someone that it is his equal, sadly this character isn’t and his equal is ROBIN!!

I totally agree with you here! If Robin is coming around for a short stint then vanishing again, it really messes up Patrick & Jason Thompson to move on…

Cathy
Guest

Because ROBIN is alive and his wife. No one can take her place. Robin suffered enough and should come home to her husband and daughter waiting for her. Besides Sabrina doesn’t fit with Patrick. FV said that Kimberly was DOING both. So I don’t see robin going anywhere. If she did i actually want to see Robin Patrick and Emma on her birthday trips. Student nurse needs to be with someone her age. Patrick is too old and he looks like a perv. Already sad that NB which was to be about Robjn and her involvement HIVAIDS which is reason… Read more »

I agree and disagree with you here. I would like to see Robin back with Patrick and believe their suprise reunion will be at the nurses ball…perfect place because of her involvement with HIVAIDS. RC has been gradually given us back our GH which doesnt seem possible under anyone else. I like Sabrina, and i too dont feel shes not right 4 Patrick but because they lack chemistry, and not for the age difference. Heck, Laura was nineteen and Luke was in his thirties(plus he raped her!) when they became a couple. Age shouldnt be a problem as long as… Read more »

I agree. I can’t picture Patrick with Sabrina, she is to young for him and I do have a problem with them being together if that is truly the plan. Every time I see her with cute little Emma Robin’s daughter I want to scream, This is so wrong. Put her with her own age group because Patrick is to mature for her. For me I’m sick and tired of everyone propping her on the show, and since she is a character created by the new writer of GH they have worked really hard to make us like her and… Read more »

I do not watch GH but I am a OLTL fan and I can tell you’s right off RC does not and will not Follow the history of the Show, and that is what makes his writing so bad. He has got everyone gripped right now with all these innuendos about Robin coming back, if he does anything he will have someone that looks like her from Behind at the Ball and have Patrick real close to turning her around and poof she will be gone and then the Story line of whether or not she is alive and where… Read more »

She better end up at the Ball to be reuinted with her husband. I’m sorry but Patrick is no way ready to declare his love for anyone else. But that doesn’t fly with this fan, and if they want to stay true to Patrick’s character that won’t happen and the only other person he’s says those words to his father, his daughter and his wife. THAT”S IT!! No way in Hell will I be watching him doing that. If that happens then this viewer who has watched through the thick and thin with Patrick and Robin won’t be watching anymore… Read more »

Then you don’t really respect Kim’s choice, do you? Listen, I would LOVE to have Robin back for the Ball-and I believe she is holding GH hostage to a degree; but real-life issues are just that. It’s got to be HER choice to return, noone else’s. Quit screaming and crying like a three year old not getting your way, these shows are about more than one couple or character. Stop being selfish…

I can’t answer that, I know I’m being selfish but really then all the fans of Patrick/Robin Jason/Sam and even Lulu/Dante don’t want their favs to be without each other. I can be selfless, I do it on a daily basis, I can let people be happy and I can be happy for others, but when it comes to this couple, I love thta KMC is doing her thing, doing what she loves. She loves to direct, but the fact that she told Frank and they convinced to not let Robin die means something. It means that she would return… Read more »

And by the way… if she didn’t want to return Troy that why has she been on? And why did we see her with Faison… and with Robert along with Dr. O? Because FV and RC have enough respect for what Robin Scorpio-Drake means to the GH landscape. They’re working around her schedule. Mallory is by no means selfish. She wants what EVERY Scrubs fan has wanted since the day we saw her alive; for Robin to come home and be with his family. Any Scrubs fan has supported her choice to be a director, myself included. But the fact… Read more »

Kimberly is not holding GH hostage. She wasn’t killed because the story is still being told. It is to tie into other stories. The stalling had to do NOT with Kimberly but with TG being ill, FH directing and IB being on Broadway. Add to that OLTL people with Prospect Park problems and the story got stalled again. Robin was always coming back and FV said so. Both he and Kimberly agreed to work with her schedule and do both. Kimberly even said she misses GH. As for Sabrina, I have no interest in a propped character that Gh had… Read more »

Mallory you have a right to express how you feel about the character of Robin. I’m surprise that someone would call you selfish for expressing your opinion, that is what this board is about “OPINIONS”. As far Kimberly holding Gh hostage with the character of Robins, it was their choice to keep her character alive. I find it insulting that someone would tell you to stop acting like a three year old. We all have our favorites on Soaps, some or couples and single characters. I don’t think you said Robin and Partrick was the show. You expressed they was… Read more »

You are absolutely correct. If Kimberly is pursuing other career options her fans should wish her luck and success. Remember, she has spent virtually her WHOLE LIFE at GH. It would be unnatural if a young woman with this level of intelligence and talent did not try to spread her wings and fly solo for awhile. She has earned the right. Jason Thompson’s career should not be “held hostage” to Kimberly’s dreams. His character should not be put on hold and allowed to fade away because his acting partner has left the show. As an actor he deserves the right… Read more »

I feel Robin is returning for the nurses ball…it would be perfecting timing. I like Sabrina but she and Patrick do lack chemistry…otherwise age difference dont bother me. Luke and Laure are 15 years apart. I feel Patrick would turn to Sabrina out of loneliness and nothing more. Sabrina is just a filler in the Patrick storyline until our Robin comes home.

I’m selfish too. this story… on so many levels…. has ripped out my heart…and then some. the history and “significance” alone… has upped the ante on how I feel.

KM is in a director program? I wonder when she’ll be done… i’ve posted before….

FV & RC don’t care about the fans or what they want, they will tell you whatever they feel they need to in order to appease the fans for the moment.

I’m with you on that but you do have to remember some of these actors are now in their 80s. They may not be willing or able to make an appearance. I started watching the show in 1970 so seeing these actors/characters again would be great. Realistically it just may not be possible. Having them honored, especially those who have died, would be satisifying for me as long as it’s not just a few seconds, blink and it’s over. Hopefully there’ll be a long montage of these people so us “older” folks can reminisce the good old days. Let’s enjoy… Read more »

And you can prove that how? KMc is back for the Nurses ball and her character for all intent and purposes is on recurring status. When she was back full time, Scrubs hardly got any screen time to begin with…
Besides, James Franco can shoot multiple episodes when he popped into town, why couldn’t KMc?

GH has a lot going on I’m just hoping they stay on track and consistent, it’s understandable that they are going all out for their 50 th but I want storylines that make sense, there’s to many cliffhangers right now, like where or how long will they keep Robert in a coma? Since they barely show Mac why not say he’s taking care of his brother, or even have Robert recuperating at GH instead of some Swiss hospital where he got poisoned to begin with. I want storylines more grounded in reality with meaning and conclusions. I’m hoping since Brandon… Read more »

There is a good chance one of the NBs suprises could be Robert returning with Robin and then his return could come between Anna and Duke. I hope. My biggest problem with GH is they’re always rushing patients to the tenth floor instead of the emergency room first.

I just want to see Robin and Patrick together with Emma. I don’t buy Patrick loving anyone but Robin. Where did this so called LOVE that RC say come from with this nurse. I don’t see it in screen nor do I see chemistry. If there was the head writer wouldn’t have needed EVERYONE to prop this nurse from Britt being so evil & to Emma of all people. Anyone with a brain would then accept the nurse after Britt. Then we had some heavy slanted writing with RC using Robin & her daughter so this nurse would be acceptable… Read more »

If Sabrina gets her Cinderella makeover, and Robin does return for good, this would make a great twist where the fairytale ending is an unhappy one, for Sabrina that is. You cant help but feel sorry 4 her if Robin returns.

I wish John Bernadino(Steve Hardy) & Emily Mcloughlin(Jessie Brewer) were still with us. If these two, with Audrey, who started it all were at a table together reminiscng while Rick Springfield sings ‘Jessie’s Girl’ and Jessie glances around the room and sees a man who looked like her long dead ex Phil Brewer(Roy Thinnes who was the original) that would have been an awesome nod to the shows past.

Ah, set them at the table with Audrey, of course as ghosts………………AWESOME

Jim, I feel sorry for ROBIN kept hostage and from her husband and child. Robin lost a year of her life. I feel for her no one else.

NB was to be about ROBIN not a makeover for Ugly Betty. That is insulting to even think the NB is about a makeover when it was about HIV/AIDS for which Robin played a huge part

If Robin’s not going to stick around- then I don’t want her back.It would be better for her to be just a memory. Much as I love Kimberly McCullough and wish her the very best, she should not be cause for heartbreak for Sabrina if she’s leaving again. I don’t know why they killed her and then un-killed Robin. If Kimberly never plans on returning- I guess they should replace her at some point. but it would really be unfair to have the Sabrina character devastated. If Robin would come back to stay- that’s another story.

I could care less if Sabrina is heartbroken if Robin return. She the one who confessed her feeling for Patrick and clinging to Emma like she was her family member. She set her sights on him from day one, all that silly day dreaming, running over to his house(to baby sit) putting herself into position for a little girl who was missing her mother and being lonely to cling to her. I believe Patrick needs a more mature woman to date, not some silly acting college girl if the writer are going to have Patrick dating at all. Put Sabrina… Read more »

If they seriously want Patrick and Sabrina to be a couple then I say it way too soon for either one of them to be declaring they love the other. Sabrina is attracted to him, which at her age feels like love, but is not- and she should, like we all did in our lives, learn the difference between immature infatuated love, and the real thing. As for Patrick, he lost his soul mate, not that long ago, so he shouldn’t be declaring love for anyone right now. Yet I do see the potential for romance between the two, just… Read more »

Robin is the only one for Patrick. You can’t force anything and Robin and Patrick belong together and always will. This is not even Patrick as the writers don’t know his character at all. Patrick doesn’t fall in love easily and he loved Robin beyond reason.

Cathy- when I said I saw potential for a romance between the Patrick and Sabrina that was based on the assumption that Robin would be out of the picture. Of course, while Robin is alive her and Patrick are end game for each other. I was merely speculating if the actress playing Robin doesn’t come back and the character is killed off-then Patrick could move on with Sabrina- but she would have to grow as a character, have a romance of her own before that could happen; that is why I said IF they did it –it should be done… Read more »

The only real big makeover is about GH, and not Sabrinas. I like Robin and belive the nb is her big story where she finally returns.

I agree Robin and Patrick belong together. But Kimberly McCullough is not interested in acting. She does it for a few minutes when she has time. How would they explain Robin being back in PC for a day and then leaving. If Kimberly is not going to be on GH full time, then they need to put Patrick with someone else (I’m not saying now..) or replace Kimberly. She left not for other acting goals but to pursue a career as a director. While I wish Kimberly would return full time, she goal is to be a full time director-… Read more »

If they were really moving Patrick on to a new relationship they would have already had him take his wedding ring off and put it away. Don’t believe it’s JT’s choice to still be wearing it and he’ll take it off when he’s ready. Jason once said in a PA the perfect time for Robin to return and would make the most impact would be just as he was ready to move on.

The 2 women he was paired with acted like HS girls both fighting over the boy who was interested.

In hindsight, I agree with that. I understand why it’s being done the way it is-but I think that is where the majority of the anger towards Patrick/Sabrina lies-the fact that we all know that Robin is ALIVE. But until Kim decides not to hold GH hostage-nothing’s going to change. Before people start yelling at me again, I respect her choice-I just think she’s taking advantage of the situation.

I agree with Troy. Kimberly is pursuing her dream. Kimberly McCullough’s dream is to become a director. I don’t understand why they killed Robin and then “Unkilled ” her. They keep showing Kimberly/robin every so often, but she does not want to return to full time acting. What good does it do to show her every so often? Even if she comes back to PC she will leave in a short time and that would ruin the story line. I don’t want she and Patrick to break up. Unless they replace KM we will not have Robin back full time.… Read more »

Much as I loved Jason/Steve he lied to the fans and said he was leaving to have his family live in Tennessee. He told some media that GH refused to let him work part time. He is working full time on another soap on the saem coast. He lied to us and so I am done with him. They need to find another good looking blond actor.

General Hospital

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
