Today's Brilliant GH! Anders Hove Returns As Faison Is Revealed & Another Shocking Twist!

General Hospital‘s Monday episode has now aired in all parts of the country, and all we can say is “Wow!”

Although it had been highly suspected that Anders Hove was returning to GH and reprising his role of uber-villain Cesar Faison (which from the get-go made the most sense on who on earth would do such harm to Robin and Anna) seeing Faison again as he revealed himself to Robin  as the man behind the “Duke” mask was just delicious drama!

How great though were Anders Hove and Kimberly McCullough (Robin)?  The scenes between the two were played brilliantly reminding us again of the power of these two actors,  especially since its been decades since Hove was on GH!

The entire episode of the show was great, which included some major developments in the other highly emotional  story which had Monica hauling off and slapping Carly as A.J/Michael/Monica and Carly all had a showdown which led to the arrest of A. J via Dante! But as you can tell, Michael is really pissed at his mom for that one.

However, there was another HUGE twist to the Faison story at the end of the episode, when Faison tells Robin, he has one more loose end to tie up.   NOTE:  If you have not seen GH today you may want to wait till reading further)

Next, we see Faison entering a room, very angry, and then we see strapped to a bed the real Duke! (Ian Buchanan) OMG, the real Duke is alive too!

So soapers, what do you think of today’s General Hospital and the storyline with Faison being revealed as the person behind all the torment that has gone on since Robin blew up in the lab at GH many months ago?  Weigh-in! And take a look at the moments today when Faison revealed himself to Robin, as well when viewers saw that Faison has the real Duke in the clip belows!

I said for weeks, maybe it was Faison..oh how delicious! Anders is the best, up there with Helena..as far as villans go..can’t wait for this story line to play out! Brillian GH!! and the real Duke is alive..icing on the cake..I would hate to see Duke not alive after all this..let Luke go back to Tracy or Laura come back and let them rekindle their love..ground up..and let Anna & Duke light up the screen..these are my views..

Totally agree! It’s like reliving my childhood as a kid. Anders Hove is so compelling and fascinating as Fiason. A classic villian! Bravo GH.

What a fantastic storyline twist! Faison is one of the best villains in GH history, and even though I kind of had an idea all along that he would be the person behind all of this, it didn’t make the scene when he revealed his face to Robin any less chilling. This show has been on fire!

And kudos to them for managing to keep some of these returns quiet, so we can actually have some surprises again. Never saw Ian Buchanan’s return coming, had no idea Stuart Damon was making an appearance last week, and they kept Anders Hove’s return under wraps as well. Great job, Frank and Ron! Thank you for making GH must see again!

The Ian and Stuart returns were spoiled weeks before they came back. Anders Hove’s was talked about, but always with the caveat that his green card had elapsed, and no one reported that he had come back. No “sightings” at the GH studios reported, no tweets by cast members, nothing at all…that I saw anyway.

So this was a very well kept secret and I LIKED IT THAT WAY. Sometimes I really miss the “good ‘ol days” (pre-internet) when everything was a surprise. It made soaps much more fun to watch and the Friday cliffhangers were really that…cliffhangers!

There was that thing back in the spring, maybe, where Anders Hove and Kassie DePaiva were photographed together. That’s when I first got the idea he was coming back as Faison.

Simply delicious! Today I felt giddy watching the developments, caliber of acting, and spectacular dialogue. GH is at the top of its game right now, and I am loving every second of it! Kudos to the team.

I loved GH in the 80’s and grew crazy frustrated and stopped watching when it was all about Sonny. GH is on fire again. I’m seriously hooked. The Quatermaines (wha’ts left of them) getting air-time again, the veterans of GH are back, the action and different storylines have me hooked. The only storyline that is getting real old is Connie/IKate….which of course involves Sonny. Regardless, Loving my GH again!

GH is just awesome right now. I loved all these characters! I feel like I am getting the best of then and now all in one show..every day is something new and always a twist. I cant believe how great its become and I am glad all these actors come back and give us a chance to revisit some great characters..THANK YOU Ron, Frank and to all these great actors for making GH be #1!

Today was one of the best shows in years really. At least since the Luke intervention episode. I was secretly thinking they might fake us all out and go with having it be David Hayward but Faison is a great reveal. Who wants to take bets that Maurice Benard is playing a mobster on Young and the Restless in a year?

Sue

You’re on – and he can take that slutty tramp Kate/Connie w/him – the first actress who played Kate was totally believable as a classy high fashion maven & probably could have played the tougher part of the alter as well – don’t care for the new one, just not polished enough

Joe

WRONG! Megan Ward was a stiff and totally out of place. Kelly Sullivan ROCKS!!!

Sue

Well, since we can’t have my all-time very most favorite character, the inimitable BILLY CLYDE TUGGLE, Cesar FAISON is such a close second!!! Agree with the person above who hates the new doc chasing Patrick – but don’t you just love that dear little nurse Sabrina – Emma likes her & can’t stand the other one – kids always know…

The element of surprise is back in soap operas and it is to be found in full florish on GH! This is the way to make watching your favorite soap “can’t miss TV”. Too many spoilers make missing an episode alright; you know what’s going to happen and can fill in the gaps later. Not knowing exactly what’s going to happen is thrilling, especially when it is as well done as GH has been serving up.! Kudos to all at GH!!!

ITA, Rodd: The ratings went way down when the Promos showed all the spoilers and the Soap Magazines revealed too much. The Soaps were the best when they had the element of surprise.

everyone take note: there is collective excitement when mobsters are not running the show. veterans, both heroic and villainous, are the heart of GH. anna devane is one of ron & frank’s very best returns. i’m glad she’s central to the canvas. anders hove, i hope, stays a long while; he’s a great talent and a villain we all love to hate. robin is probably one of the most favorite characters on GH of all time; too bad she stays for guest sints only. finally, although not new, todd manning has become a new GH favorite. i hope the love of his life, blair, can join him. its easy to fall in love with her character as well…

i am on the edge of my seat everyday when watching gh – this show is just awesome right now – my hat goes off to ron carlivati!

My beloved GH is BACK baby! With budgets the way they are, for Frank & Ron to be able to pull all this off, is simply outstanding. They are mining the rich history of the show which was decimated during JFP and Guza’s reign. Seeing Leslie Charleson back on almost every day is golden. Sean Kanan hasn’t lost a beat as AJ. I now have a new respect for Michael, a character that I couldn’t stand barely a year ago. The Nurses Ball is being resurrected again with Juicy Lucy Coe in charge again. Can’t wait until she sees her best girlfriend Felicia and trade barbs with Tracy. Minor quibbles like Kate/Connie aside, I’m finally back to watching GH again after a decade of not tuning in. Can’t have much better praise than that.

There are only a handful of iconic villains in soap. Sheila Carter, James Stenbeck and undoubtedly Cesar Faison. They are more than just exceptional, they are inspired and exquisite in making these characters three dimensional. So good to have Faison back!

You forgot Mitch Laurence and Helena Cassadine.

I think Faison is as vicious as was years ago as I rememeber… The wsb days with Robert & Anna, Shawn Donnelly…………………………..And what will happen to Duke? I think Anna will figure it out he isn’t Duke. Anna is a smart lady…Her instincts are alway’s right on!!!!! Deep down I thing Anna knows there is something off about Duke (Faison)…………………….

susan M.

I still like Robert Scorpio with Anna…Duke came in second for me…

Violet

I completely agree. Even when Duke and Anna were at their height of romance and popularity, I always wanted Anna with Robert. The two just seem like they know each other better than themselves and have stunning chemistry. Well, when Robert is being written well, that is. 😉

So glad that ABC has finally found a team that is not lazy, complacent and indifferent to GH’s legacy. Frank and Ron have been so respectful of GH’s rich history and wonderful characters. Sure, there are some inconsistencies and annoying characters, but Duke, Faison, Anna, Luke, Heather, Tracy, AJ — all wonderful. Can’t wait to see Robert and Lucy again. Hopefully they can phase out Sonny/Connie/Johnny/Olivia so that they can afford a real kick ass Nurse’s Ball!

I am ECXTATIC after watching yesterdays GH!!! Faison and Robin were beyond great acting! The performance was rivetting. I cannot wait to see todays ep. I feel like its 1981 all over again!! The only thing missing is Robert Scorpio. I am sure he will be along shortly. I would LOVE to see him solve this mess with Luke at his side once again like in the old days. And wouldn’t it just be icing on the cake if Jason shows up at the appopriate moment since we now know that it was Faison who shot him before he disappeared!!!!

Not that shocking and not that interesting to me. This character is boring as hell, and the storyline is boring. Move on and just either bring Robin back or don’t!

Mary

Without a doubt one of my favorite episodes…………….glad real Duke is back….now want Robin to be re-united with Patrick fast…….super fast…I love the shock of seeing Faison again great actor….good job Cartini and entire cast,crew,etc………….

I agree with you Mary!

It’s such sweet timing that Faison’s return and Anna Duke Robert back in the fray coincides with the release of the new Bond movie, don’t you think? Spy espionage is BACK!!!!!

Violet

I hadn’t thought about that, but you’re right! However, the NEED to go on a huge spy adventure to show off their mad sleuthing skills!

Teresa

Absolutely wonderful. I told my husband back when we found out Robin was kidnapped that it had to be Faison and was totally shocked when it was actually Duke’s face behind it all. It really made no sense that he would do that to Anna. Terrific twist of events. Congratulations.

OK…LOVING GH so much right now…BUT…why is everyone dumping on Kate/Connie?? I LOVE Connie! Kelly Sullivan is knocking out of the park in EVERY scene! YES I love the returns as much as everyone,,,and now they need to just add Laura, Scotty, Bobbie and Robert Scorpio permanently and we’re golden, but, Connie is the BEST! She’s a riot and Kelly Sullivan Rocks!
BTW, wouldn’t Dorian Lord be a great addition to Port Charles?? Imagine her and Tracey at each others throats!?!

susan M.
susan M.

I like the storyline about Faison & Duke…It is keeping my interest. Can’t wait to see what happens each day. Faison will be found out for sure…Betweeen Anna & Luke one of them will figure out he isn’t Duke but Faison. And Robin will get back with Patrick and
Emma…..

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
