Robin Mattson Returning To General Hospital As Heather Webber!

She’s baaaaack!  As previously reported, General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini revealed that this fall several male and female villains will be returning to the ABC soap opera, leading to much speculation that perhaps one of the lady baddies was going to be loony tunes Heather Webber!

And as it turns out …. that is the case …  as GH long time fan favorite Robin Mattson (Heather) revealed on her facebook that she is indeed returning for another round of causing chaos in Port Charles! Mattson posted: “Heather is returning to GH soon!”

So what will happen this time?  Will Heather be mixed up with son Franco (Roger Howarth)?  Will she help him seek revenge on Sonny (Maurice Benard) for sleeping with Carly (Laura Wright)?  Will she get mixed back up with Fluke/Luke (Tony Geary)?   When we last saw Heather, she was going for a stay behind bars!

Share your thoughts on Robin as Heather returning to GH one mo’ time below!

Yes. What a great actress Robin is, and Heather over the years was such a complex character. This regime has absolutely ruined her, turned her into a total joke. The term villain is so overused on GH because everything is black and white and it is one big, campy cartoon. Now Heather is just one more victim of extraordinarily unsophisticated, immature, thin writing that is played for laughs, but isn’t funny. A great actress like Robin needs great material to exhibit her fine talents and used to have that at GH. Now Heather is just a silly mess, as GH… Read more »

I love Robin also. Maybe she has had an exorcism or brain surgery ,just like Franco, and voila’, a brand new Heather. …no more craziness ….the devil/tumor made her do it.

GH50…I agree!!!!! Yes. IMO, Robin Mattson has ALWAYS BEEN such a wonderful actress!!!!! But, in the current sense, those current GH writers have written RM’s character of Heather Webber into such a CONTRIVED CORNER…YIKES!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Robin Mattson deserves W-A-Y BETTER MATERIAL…ASAP!!!!!!!

Of course I agree with you, GH50. For a villain to be scary they have to have a degree of realism in them–you have to believe this person could really be out there interacting with others while repressing their insane and dark thoughts. Fatal Attraction’s Alex Forrester ceased being scary when she leaped out of the bathtub brandishing a knife and became Freddy Kruger. As you state, Heather became ridiculous and once that happens the fear factor is erased. I do not blame Robin, I blame the writing. Once upon a time I loved this character and found her fascinating… Read more »

What a surprise GH50 is upset about something at GH AGAIN! I enjoy Robin Mattsona and she portrays her character greatly. I’d imagine since the real Luke is locked up the same place as her that it will probably have something to do with that. So glad that Robin Mattson will be back on screen. For those complaining I hope you complained when she was on back in the early 2000’s and trying to marry Edward because thats when she became the character she is. My advice to those unhappy about her return you have a remote control I am… Read more »

Chris, it’s not surprising that I don’t like something about the show and it’s certainly not surprising that what I am once again commenting on here is the writing. I love Robin and loved Heather, but the awful writing has ruined her as it has everything on GH. If one’s position is that the writing on the show is terrible, then it would be hard to like anything about the show because everything stems from the writing. Add very poor pacing, dialogue, continuity (all writing related) as well as poor production/direction and GH is a mess these days and has… Read more »

hope its very short term, she’s just too much of the same thing all the time, nothing changes, and its played out way too long and very redundant.

Also T.J. has mixed feelings when Jordan and Shaun become engaged…T.J.s father shows up alive just as Jordan is about to tell the truth about herself that Suan is his real dad…editted out by mistake…also mispelled some words…my bad…lol

Yes, Harry…these were wishful spoilers…some good, some?…it was my way of showing they could write for Monica too…the original was twice as long with more detail and story but i heavily editted it…a few mistakes remain…i just wanted to write how id like some of the story turn out…all harmless fun!!!

I figure she’ll find the real luke in her current residence.

whoopie!!
Robin Mattson (Heather) is a dark yet fun character..
We have not seen her fully interact in a story with Franco and Scotty…
I am looking forward to see how Heather will be written this time .. 🙂

She must be mixed up with Fluke since her or his goons got real Luke to Miscarviage when he came upon her in the boathouse. Most likely will be a part of that story line and finding out who Fluke is.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Yeah, good thought, Mary. Perhaps she’s the one who is giving Levi his orders, as per Fluke. Is she back because she is meeting with Levi? I really think there is more to the Aztec jewels story.

Love Robin Mattson, she’s one of the best. Always glad to have her back on GH, raising some hell. I just hope they involve her in some different stories this time. Heather trying to kill Carly is played out. Hopefully she gets to work with Tony Geary some more, because those two always have a great chemistry. Would also love to see her and Michelle Stafford share the screen together, and see who can out crazy the other, lol.

I think she’ll be the one to save Luke…I’m thinking she wasn’t aware of the switch, somehow finds out and schemes to get him out. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem since she waltzed in and out of there like a cuckoo clock…ahem. If she can just get his brain cells back to working order should be a done deal!

Shay
Guest
Shay

I’ve proposed the same notion, rebecca1. I think it would be rather awesome if (for once) Heather became a bit of a heroine, particularly after her last dud of a “Carly Caper.” That was the first time I could honestly say that the BLT Queen’s antics just did not thrill me to no end!!! (P.S. Maybe she’ll try to convince RealLuke that they actually are married and spring him from the nuthouse for a riotous roadtrip!)

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I want a kick ass Heather Webber…no one messes around with her man or her BLT’s…Heather needs to somehow rescue RealLuke and have Fluke take his place at MisCavige where all kinds of horrible experiments are performed on Fluke and drugs given to him that Fluke ordered to be done with RealLuke…KARMA!…i can see Heather keeping RealLuke in hiding to protect him and nursing him back to health with BLT’s from Kelly’s…lol

That’s the problem, how on EARTH was Heather able to escape Miscavige time and time again with such ease?! It’s supposed to be maximum security, and yet, she walks in and out as if it’s Kelly’s and she’s ordering a damn BLT!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Thats what i’d like to know too, Jimmy…how did Heather get out of a mental hospital under tight security…when i was in a nut house years ago it was impossible to escape…i had to pretend i was sane before they let me out…and that wasnt very easy for me to do…lol

rebecca1

Well, she could have been friends with the same guard that was holding Luke captive (not knowing that he’s a slime that was also helping Fluke). Maybe somehow she paid him off (oh paleeeez let it not have been with sexual favors).

Thank the soap gods! I know she is over the top but people, she can act! Watch her act! Speaking of acting, how about Levi’s partner in crime, Scribner. He was on the show for like 5 minutes and him lying there gasping for air after he was shot was 10 times better acting than Ryan/James/Tinman! My point, GH has way too many people who cannot act. Lets enjoy Robin!

Jimmy
Guest

I agree, if they plan to keep Nathan around as a long-term character, they need to do 2 things – first, pick a name and stick with it. Either Nathan or James, because this back and forth with Nina and Liesl calling him James and everyone else calling him Nathan is annoying. Second, they need to recast the role and hire an actor who can actually act, like maybe Mark Lawson or John-Paul Lavoisier from OLTL? Either way, Ryan Paevey has to go.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Yes. This character has scenes with heavyweights and its annoying to watch him read his lines like he is in a school play! Yes he is handsome but who cares, even women will admit that they want actors who can act. Plus this character is going to be a Cassadine and anyone of the Cassadines, take your pick, are awesome actors. He will fail miserably up against Helena, Victor, Starvos, or Stephan.

CeeCee

Lavoisier is too old to play this role. Protagonist is supposedly in his late twenties, as is Ryan/Nathan.

aww c’mon..
Nathan/Ryan is doing a good job… he is better in some scenes than others..
Not everyone can be a great actor..
ie( Robin/Kim is a bad actor but a good director..
So, Nathan/Ryan is OK too ..
(and a hunk lol ..

So agree with you Timmm. Jamil Walker Smith aka Scribner was part of the TV series “SGU Stargate Universe”…. Also directed and starred in ” The American Dream”. –incredibly gifted actor from Nyawk (NYC)… Yeah !!!

That’s what some of us are discussing and would like to see a phenomenon happening……..the emergence of a cured, reborn and conformed Heather. Lol. As Shay suggested; it would be great if Heather were applauded as the heroine and save the day. I, for one, would love to see Robin dressed in full acting regalia as a normal person. Maybe they’ll keep her on a permanent basis. It was done with Dr. O, …so, why not Heather?

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I agree with you and Shay…would love to see Heather change for the better and save the day…hope she is the one who rescues Luke and takes Fluke down…maybe she’ll give Fluke a taste of his own medicine…drug Fluke and have him take Lukes place at MisCavige…she’ll keep the real Luke in hiding to protect him and nurse him back to health…no one messes with Heather’s man or her BLTs or they’ll be sorry…lol

I am hoping the fact that heather is so in love with Luke that she HELPS him in some way. What concerns me is that TG is tired of the Luke character and has asked for hi to be killed off last year. I realize this crazy character of Fluke is much more fun to play, but maybe they will find some way to re-energize both Luke and the actor. We have all watched Luke grow to a likeable human being, flawed but likeable. Over the years, he has become a HO HUM …I welcome some changes…he deserves it….TG and… Read more »

I look forward to her scenes with Franco as well as Nina…. they each have that crazy comedic edge to them that could be dynamic….Imagine Nina meeting Heather…LOL! usually we can send the “end game” when it comes to the pairings of certain characters…. but right now all these couples seem to be in limbo…..seems as though the writers are testing the chemistry of certain characters…. The big question is what happens if GH gains the rights, once again, to the characters of John McBain, Todd ( I only pray he comes back) , and Starr who really is the… Read more »

Word is Billy Miller will not be playing Jason, or any other character for that matter. He wants to branch out of soaps and, while he was apparently courted by GH, he isn’t signing a contract as Jason. This is disappointing because I love Billy Miller, he’s a fantastic actor and he is so deeply missed on Y&R. I think he’d make a great Jason. Also, I agree with you about Carly and Franco, I’m really not feeling it, mostly because Roger Howarth as Franco just doesn’t work for me. It’s really awkward seeing him call Kin Shriner “dad.” When… Read more »

Carly and Franco worked for about three seconds when he was having his issues with his tumor, having attacks of conscience along with doubts that this amazing woman would be attracted to him, while she felt she could love him into being this great guy. But once they got together and he became this immature, insecure jealous jerk and she didn’t need to “heal” him anymore their chemistry fizzled big time. Let Carly go back to Sonny and let Franco find out he was brainwashed by the real Franco into thinking he Franco and let’s find another character for Roger… Read more »

I love Robin Mattson but Heather’s last visit in Port Charles was a complete joke, she has become the epitome of cartoon villains. I really hope she’s back for the Fluke/Luke story, but seriously, if she’s the same over-the-top-crazy as she was last time, then she’s already overstayed her welcome. I used to love Heather as a villain but the writing for her has becomes so thin and weak, she comes off as a total cartoon and the whole thing becomes a joke. Hopefully that isn’t the case this time. One thing I would love to see though is some… Read more »

Cannot wait for Franco to have a family picnic with Heather and Scott! What I see happening is Heather will discover Luke and Fluke before anyone and try and tell anyone who listens but they will dismiss her discovery because of her craziness. I do hope they lighten up her character a bit and she is ultimately responsible for saving her Lukey Pie!

Whenever Heather comes back, there is such excitement. I have a feeling she is going to find Luke and elude to them he is there. I feel that Anna owes Heather, because Heather tried to tell Anna Robin was alive in Ferncliffe, but Anna refused to believe her. SO I am hoping there is a connection to that this time, with Anna believing her. And yes———Heather was RIGHT that Carly would hurt Franco someday. Free Heather, cure her, have her run Kelly’s and be the center of all things Port Charles, like Ruby, Rose, Bobbie, etc.. If there is ever… Read more »

When Heather returned in 2012, the baby switch storyline with the One Life To Live characters was brilliant, classic soap opera storytelling at it’s best. After that, Heather should have left, because the recent returns have been nothing but foolery. Here’s hoping that they redeem Heather this go around

Wish Heather was back to the 80’s version. Guza ruined her with her obsessed with Luke and a crazy murderer. The 80’s Heather was misunderstood and tried to kill Diana, Susan etc, but in a comedy of errors was unable to achieve. Hoping she will be cured and go back to Scotty and compete with Lucy and mentor Nina!

I agree with mk.The writers need to cut down on the lunacy where Heather’s concerned but keep her as the manipulative,conniving vixen she’s always been.It seems unlikely that she and Scotty would rekindle what they had back in the day.It seems like Scotty has washed his hands of her(unfortunately).

General Hospital

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
