Maybe Robin had a patient who reminded her of Stone and he also died…maybe its Patrick Drake!!!

I know. I don’t want Robin coming back because the writers do something terrible to Anna!

Oh, I see. I think Finola is signed up for a couple years so I doubt she will get hurt.

I think she’s coming back for the memorial for Morgan and hopefully she’ll help Finn.

My family is real, this is a soap. Pointless for the character to even be there.

What a silly comment. People will literally find anything to complain about these days. Robin has ties to many people in town, including Sonny who just lost his son. He was there for her when she lost Stone many years ago, so it makes sense Robin would return to be there for Sonny at his time of need.

Always great to see Kimberly back on GH, whether it’s a short visit or a long visit. Don’t know how anyone could view that as a negative. She’s moved on in her life and become a successful director, but it’s nice that she never forgets where she came from, and comes back from time to time.

Hate that they killed off Morgan . The young man that played him. I really like.

Maybe she is dropping off Jason Thompson in Port Charles and then running Billy Miller over to the Y&R set!

I think she’s coming to take care of Anna and Sonny . They are both feeling down , for different reasons of course but they need her.

It’s great to see Robin from time to time, and it’s a shame that she and Patrick are no longer on the canvas. They were easily one of the show’s best couples, and GH is in desperate need of more doctors with ties to the canvas already. Get Steve and Matt out of jail, bring back Sarah Webber, and utilize Brad and Lucas more.

I’m also hoping Anna turns out to be Griffin’s mother, because I think the relationship between Robin and Griffin would be interesting to see play out, after all these years. I already love the connection Anna and Griffin have, and I hope Robin gets to spend some time with Robert, provided he’s still in town. The real question is, will she be bringing Emma with her?

Could this be the characters swan song?

from what I’ve read … ie: Anna on another trip of doldrums wracked with guilt, denial, enough already… Duke is gone

yikes… once again… griffin.. is their to sprinkle holy water console and lead a path of righteousness

HOTTEST Claudette , whatever her angle… agenda.. is smoldering

unhinge “father” Griffin… you have experience… LIVE “a little”

LOL Patrick.. I think it was ridiculous to make him a priest in the first place. Too much of a leading man…

I just hopened she coming back not just to visit but to help Dr Finn with his research to find a cure for his illness, that is what Robin does for a living, find impossible cures, but when it comes to Robin it’s never impossible

I’m hoping Robin is not coming just for a visit I’m hoping that she is going to help dr. Finn find a cure for his illness, that’s what Robin does she does the impossible

I been watching GH since the early 80’s when I was a pre teen..And I never care for the character of Robin..Found the character to be an annoying kid..As an adult , i found her boring and even more annoying..Am I the only one who feels this way about such an iconic GH character?

Hope her visit is quick!!

WendyQ

I feel the same. Didn’t care for her as a kid, and as a teen and adult she was annoying and so self-righteous. I’m never thrilled to see her back on canvas.

I really hope she will get to see Robert and Anna we know it will only a short time for seeing Robert. I really hope she can see him. Bring Brad an Lucas to the front line they would make the show a bit more fun. I really want her to bring Emma witth her so she can Grams and Gramps .
I really hope it has something to do with Stone.

rebecca1

She’s not a dynamic must-see character but she’s one of the few emotionally stable, grounded characters. She adds a “homey, cozy” feel for me. The loving daughter, wife…loyal friend…and of course being Robert and Anna’s daughter gives her bonus points!

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
