There you go Jim, Nina should wrestle Crimson away from Julian and her and Maxie and Lucy would be a riot together!

RRRRRRRobin! Love it! It is all about her love for Stone and AIDS itself. Why not? I cannot wait to see the scenes where Robin meets Griff AND I bet Griff and Emma will perform together at the Ball. Welcome back Kim!

Yes, my Timmmy. It would be out of this world if Robin and Griffin were twins separated at birth. Picture this: they see each other from across the room; their eyes lock; speaking without words; something otherworldly, bigger than they …..a force pulls them together. Then, they remember their time in-utero together. LOL.

In – our – ideally perfect soapie land… this would be one of the biggies danged it tho… fans were so pulling… for Griffin to be Anna’ biological LOL… your post just brings tears all for Anna… I was watching Tuesday ep last night… when Griffin and Emma .. looked like they were play acting in Anna living room… it just looked SO RIGHT Anna and her two pups… so… i’m happy with that… BUT… Grifin is still THAT mystery i’m gonna hope with you… that the GH writers… just bring it HOME… and since Griffin is still a newbie…… Read more »

I’ll watch GH again just to see Kimberly McCullough/Robin (the only Robin ) back on GH with her daughter Emma. It will be GH again with them and other Vets. The characters like Ava, Hayden, Sabrina, and Nina (nor do the actors who play them) belong on GH. In fact, it doesn’t look like my GH anymore with these Chara a

Glad to see Robin. Perhaps she can talk Sonny out of using Corleonish stunts/warnings to scare Ava from taking her baby back.

I do not Robin, never have never will..
I can not give a ”WHOOPIE!

Sonny should never be made into a monk, he is the badazz Sonny Corinthos!!
I want to see the man do his Sonny stuff and burry this saint routine that does not fit him.. LOL 🙂

ummm I’m going to invite the Sonny character to your house for dinner !! ahaa!

Lol, SuzieQ.
I am not very familiar with Robin, but I like her….I watched past episodes, as she aged on GH. So sweet.
Sonny will have a long way to go to get to my house, su.
So, you want Sonny to get his mojo back, is that it? Hmmmmm. I’m not into the mob or killing. You know that, right? However, “cosa nostra” doesn’t seem to be moving from GH.
Futhermore, Julian is still soooo deep into the muck, the ‘malavita’ is here to stay.
Do you think Sonny or Anna will kill Carlos? We shall see.

Absolutely excited! The NB would not be the same without Lucy and Kimberly (Robin) has always been the heart of the NB and it is a shame that it took this long to bring her back.

I am so happy to hear of these two actresses returning for the Nurses’ Ball. It is this kind of “guest star” that I want to see; not some “celebrity” with no link to the GH canvas. Returning GH stars will attract me more than anything else, so for that, I say Thank You to TPTB for pulling this off.

I was never a BIG fan of Robin, though I didn’t dislike her either. But when she had that deeply moving scene last year with Jason on the bridge, I began to appreciate her more. Of all the women in Jason’s “new” life, she was the only one other than Carly that immediately touched me. That was a beautifully underplayed scene by Kimberly & Billy, proving again that less can really be more. So I will enjoy her return to the ball. And it’s worth having Lucy at the ball just for the costume changes. That is one gal who… Read more »

That was it, those scenes on the bridge were great. In those few short moments it seemed as though Kim and Billy bonded better than Sam or Liz? Not as a pair but as friends and actors.

Good news indeed that Robin will be back for the NB in a normal capacity for the first time in an age….however, since we already know that her spouse, Patrick, shall be otherwise engaged in Genoa City, would it be too much to hope that perhaps her father-in-law, Dr. Noah Drake, could accompany her instead? What a welcome sight Rick Springfield would be! Having said that, I’m none too pleased that we are in for the umpteenth installment of “I Loathe Lucy” to endure. Whilst I adore tradition, there is also something to be said for providing a fresh spin… Read more »

Sweet Shay, you hit it out of the park AGAIN! Rick subbing for Jason! That would be cool and Rick is always promoting his music! Its a win win. I have to say, Jason is doing well as Billy Abbott BUT not as well as I thought. I would rather see them shelve the character after this whole PASSKEY story is over! Billy Miller could return in a year and blow the place up! ANOTHER point we agree on, NO Lucy! She isnt on the show currently and I dont need another wardrobe malfunction. Mudder and Finn could have Lucy… Read more »

@Timmm….I agree it would be so great to see Rick back at the NB, be it as Noah Drake, Eli Love….or himself!!! Any of the three—or combination thereof—would be fine by me! As for my disappointment about the hosting arrangements, yes, I was truly hoping for a more original choice this time around….I simply don’t get the desire for the same old, same old act in that respect when there are other capable options already present on the GH canvas. Lastly, I did reply to your thoughtful post on the previous thread, although not directly to your inbox due to… Read more »

Agreed, guys. I like Lucy Coe, but, I find her a little too neurotic….she gets so excited when speaking, I feel I can’t catch my own breath.
Jason Thompson is a big disappointment for me as Billy A; as much as Billy M is as Jason. He needs to go back to being Jake. That demon-like stare into nothingness, as he was chocking the life out of Nikolas, made him look like a psychopath.
Nah; me no like.

Glad to see Lucy’s back to oversee the Nurses Ball. It’s her baby, it just seems right. She’s helped put Humpty Dumpty together on many occasions in her own inimitable style, along with the inspiration and help of Sabrina, Felix, Laura, and almost Tracy in other years. Even some of Lucy’s predictable mis-calculations lend a kinda of charm for me. Except last year. But we’ve been promised way better this year.

I do love Kimberly’s Robin, but I admit that I get somewhat annoyed with how she just pops in and out. I prefer stories that I can get invested in. With that said, Robin is such an important part of the Nurse’s Ball and it makes sense she would return. 🙂

You know what? I’m ready to let go of Robin. Especially now that there’s no hope she’ll ever return with Patrick. I’m happy they got their happy ending and I’m just as happy to hear about their lives off camera. Anna can reference visiting them from time to time; and Emma can come back for breaks and summers until they rapid age her into being a doctor at GH.

GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Addresses Why She Was Not a Part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s ‘Alexis-Centric’ 25th Anniversary Episode

For the past several weeks, savvy General Hospital fans were wondering why on earth was Alexis’ best friend, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), was not a part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s (Alexis) 25th anniversary episode of the ABC daytime drama series, which centered around Alexis saying goodbye to those near and dear before she goes to Pentonville to serve a prison sentence.

After all, Diane and Alexis have been through so much together, that it seemed like a glaring omission. Was Hennesy not asked back for the episode?  The answer came in the form of Hennesy herself via in a response to a fan’s tweet on her being MIA from the episode.

As it turns out, the ever-busy Hennesy was shooting a film in Atlanta and was not available at the time of the tape date of Grahn’s special episode.

 

Carolyn tweeted: “Not their fault, my dear. I was off filming on Atlanta!!! Cuz you know Diane wouldn’t have missed it!”  That came in response to this: “Watched the big @NancyLeeGrahn ep of #GH and I’m perplexed that there was no Diane! @carolynhennesy One of the most fun TV female friendships and she wasn’t there to send her off? Come on you guys @GeneralHospital”

Mystery solved! Carolyn would have gladly been at the GH set that day in a heartbeat, if she could have.

So, happy to know that GH did not forget about Diane for the Alexis-Centric episode, but had to work around it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Stars Participate in GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’, Asking You To Do The Same

General Hospital’s Sofia Mattsson, Cynthia Watros, Kathleen Gati, Brook Kerr and Johnny Wactor appear in a video released this morning, where the actors look to camera and remain silent.

It’s all a part of the ongoing initiative from GLSEN and their “Day of Silence” campaign which is  a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.  Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

This year the day is this coming Friday April 23rd.  General Hospital is showing their support of LGBTQ+students and their right to be safe at school and free of verbal harassment, as well.  The video released today supports the organizations action.

 

Now they ask you to support it as well and make your own, ‘Day of Silence’ video and share it on social media.  Watch General Hospital’s below.

Then let us know, if you stand with GH and their support of GLSEN’s Day of Silence via the comment section.

Kimberly McCullough Gives Clues That Have GH Fans Suspecting She Was Back for John Reilly’s Tribute Episode: “Saw Some Old Friends and Reminisced about an Absent Dear One…”

General Hospital fans began taking note of a couple of tweets sent out by beloved longtime cast member, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), over the last 24 hours on the actress-director’s Twitter feed.

First, Kimberly shared: “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for.”

After that she followed it up with, “Here’s a clue – saw some old friends and reminisced about a dear absent one ….”

If you combine that with the fact that Jackie Zeman also tweeted: “Good day shooting @GeneralHospital I was invited back for a special episode today. As Y’all know I rarely post a selfie but it’s been awhile since I’ve had ‘Bobbie’ hair and makeup done. Thank you Karen, Carl, and Ari. Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone,” it would appear that both McCullough and Zeman were back for the upcoming tribute episode to the late John Reilly, who for many years played Sean Donely.

In story, Robin’s parents, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) were very close with Sean, as well.  So it all makes sense that Robin would be part of this as well.

So, if this is proven to be true, are you excited to see Kimberly back on a special episode of GH?  Comment below.
