Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Photo: JPI

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.

Great to see her, and to have Tristan Rogers front and center for a while.

As much as some of us criticize Frank and the writers for certain things, the showcasing of veterans over the past few years has definitely improved. First Jon Lindstrom, and now both Tristan and Wally Kurth driving story. 10 years ago, producers would never let recurring actors lead storylines. It’s refreshing nowadays since that rule no longer applies.

Not sure if Emma filmed that scene in LA or back in England. Glad to see she’s recovering from Covid and eager to see more.

Holly is a great character. I hope she gets a front burner long term story that really explores all the layers of the character and redeems her from the previous short and clunky stories she’s had over the last 10 years

I think maybe Peter’s stooges may have her and am also wondering if the body they found might be Cassandra’s?

Given her recent disclosures that she’s still dealing with COVID 19 for several months, I didn’t think there was a snowball’s chance in my back yard that we would be seeing her anytime soon.

Could be that all we get is this 2 second appearance for now, and that any further Holly sightings will have to wait until she’s healthy. If that’s the case, I’m OK with it, since it establishes that 1) Holly actually is alive and 2)rumors of a recast were unfounded, thank all that’s unholy!!

Emma Samms – She’s 60 yrs old.. How do all these older people, Anna included, even work in these power spy/whatever agencies? There are age limits – 23 to 36 years of age for special agents enlistment and required to retire at age 50 I believe and before that time no longer active field agents. But, then again, Soaps are crazy stuff- they have their own unreality wonderland.. gotta love it.. At least now Scorpio has an age-appropriate side. It will be good to have him upfront even tho there will be a twist that will un-couple them, for sure.… Read more »

I was laughing so hard at BLQ’s miraculous and extra speedy recovery from having her throat slashed! Hours later her makeup was flawless and she had virtually no medical devices hooked up to her. The outrageousness is part of the fun! If only the world was really like that! lol

1. I’m 60. 2. 60 isn’t “older”. 3. Robert, Anna, Holly and I would kick any young person’s a$$ before they knew what happened. LOL. I know you weren’t serious, but I am.

I’d like to know something , I was thinking about this Liv knew who Ethan was. I’m not sure but I don’t recall those two ever seeing each other in as Luck calls it…..Port Chuck. Maybe she saw pics of him but there’s no connection between them …or at least I don’t think so.?

They probably didn’t share a lot of scenes back in the day, but the irony here is……

Nathan Parsons originally auditioned for the role of Dante… so his audition he was actually reading with Sonny & Olivia.

Powers that be didn’t think he was right for the character, but they liked him well enough to write the new character of Ethan specifically for him.

So in other words, Olivia knows him… whether she really should or not. But I’m sure their paths must have crossed somewhere in the past being as the Corinthos/Spencer/Quartermaine/Falconeri clans all intersect 666 different ways.

As Ethan is Lulu’s half-brother and she was married to Olivia’s son, that was one path.

Also, Olivia dated Johnny for a while, who could-owned the Haunted Star, this mingling with Luke and associated crowd.

I was thrilled to see Holly/Emma Samms, wow, she’s so beautiful, she really looked great. I’m so glad they are playing this spy caper, its fun and distraction from Mikes dying on GH,but also where Is Genie Francis? she appeared in the first episodes after the Covid hiatus and haven’t seen her since?? and where’s is Finola Hughes? every time Alex is mentioned and Anna sets to go look for her that only mean Finola Hughes is going on extended leave ala Luke style or Anthony Geary “vacation”. wish is annoying since they’re so long and the show just got… Read more »

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
