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.

Anna & Finn are good, Anna & Duke were amazing, just don’t mess with my Robert & Holly, please!!

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 »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
