What Did You Think Of GH's Anna & Duke's Reunion? – Watch The Key Scenes!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Leave it to one of the best actresses on daytime, Finola Hughes (Anna) to make any storyline plausible!  In riveting scenes on yesterday’s General Hospital, Anna is reunited with her former flame, Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan).

While the explanation from Duke of where he was all these years, and just who the “Duke”  imposter Jonathan Padget (then played by Greg Beecroft) was discussed, it all still begs the question, is this really Duke?  And why is he holding Robin and keeping her away from Anna?

So soapers, did you like the reunion scenes between Anna and Duke? Are you buying the explanation from the writers and from Duke?  Or, do you think there are more twists on a twist coming?  And, what did you think of Anthony Geary returning as Luke at the end of the episode catching “Slim” with Duke?

In case you missed the key scenes, watch it after the jump!

So he’s lost the Scottish accent?

Well…..that was fast. Todd’s reveal to his family, then to figure out who he was and what happened to him took months to figure out. Most of Duke’s mystery is out in the open within 2 episodes of his arrival. I don’t know if it’s a good thing (not a lot of unnecessary teasing of the audience back and forth) or a bad thing (a sign of how much FV/RC actually care about Duke/Anna/their amazing history together).

I will always applaud FV/RC since they are TRYING to save ABC lone soap, and I wonder how all the nay sayers will feel if GH goes off the air

TBH, the past 2 clips of Duke’s return have been more GH I’ve watched than in the past 6 months combined. And I do mean that. I can also honestly tell you how I, a nay sayer AND (previous) 23 year viewer, will feel when GH goes off the air, because it’s a point that will one day become a reality so I have been working on making peace with it. The jobs and history lost will probably still upset me, but my personal enjoyment for the show has not been present for at least 7 years now (Scrubs –… Read more »

Finola is going to win the Lead Actress Emmy next year. I swear to god, the woman is such a pioneer and a powerhouse. What her character has done for women’s empowerment all over the world I cannot even BEGIN to stress highly enough.

Finola, you are THE greatest there ever was.

I loved it especially the flashback scenes from what they used to look like back in the 80’s! As for where he’s been all of this time needs to be explained more because he said that his life was stolen away from him, but it was never revealed how and what happened to him, so hopefully when he and Anna have that “talk” he can explain himself and why he has Robin in which I think she won’t forgive him for making her believe that she was dead all of this time when he had her!

i liked seeing the old clips, but i’m not sold on them being back together… i mean gees if someone I cared deeply had died some twenty years back and broke into my house, I’d still think of getting to know them all over again – in other words I’d be leery of them much longer than 5 minutes and rush into their arms. And gees when he finally reveals that he had Robin , i’d think that would seal the deal, that you are not the Duke I loved!

Never liked Duke. There’s something snake oil salesman about him. I’d rather see Alan back, but don’t know how they’d do that. There is no one except Monica and tracy. No Q. man. I hope Sean Kanan is not going to be A.J. Let’s make it somewhat real at least.

Why would Duke be so cruel to Anna and Robin?

susan M.
Guest
susan M.

That’s the question………………Why???????????????? He is being very cruel & mean in having Robin…And he doesn’t care that Anna is still grieving for Robin…. He claims to love Anna…..It’s more like obsession to me…..Not love….What has he up his sleeve?????????????????? Hmmmmmmmmm…………..

I was never a big Duke Lavery fan….he always seemed so cold and aloof compared to Robert & Luke. Not very interested at all….especially because he is acting like he didn’t know about Robin’s “death” and made Anna go through that again telling him. I’m not a fan at all and I don’t trust what he’s saying to Anna!!!

ITA, I was always rooting for Anna and Robert. Duke always lied to her and made Anna Weak. David Haywood was like that.

I always appreciate seeing new stories enhanced by classic soap clips, but this is the first story of the new regime that I’m not feeling – granted, I didn’t see the original Anna/Duke story so it has no resonance for me.

I was in college back when Duke was on GH and it aired while I was in class.
I don’t remember much about him and Anna.
So it will be interesting.

Finola knocked it out of the park yesterday. So far I like what I’m seeing. Glad they explain right away the whole Jonathan Paget thing. Looking forward to how this storyline unfolds. Bravo Finola and Ian! The has me excited to tune in again!!!

Since I started watching because of OLTL I have absolutely no interest in this Duke character. I watched Anna Devane on AMC and remember Ian Buchanan on AMC and then whoever he played on Days. I actually find him quite creepy. Seems to me if GH wanted more viewers they would not go so far back in the archives for a storyline.

Actually when Duke died, it was the time Y and R took over the the #1 spot and stayed. I feel Duke had his fans out there.

Loved it!!! She is so great and it’s great to see them together again. Not loving that he is involved with keeping Robin locked up. Would rather see a reunion of Robert and Anna… but it was still great! Can’t wait to see what they have going for Anna Luke and Duke. GH is rocking it!

TBH, the return is boring and fizzled when he wasn’t on for a month or so. Sure, it’s a nice change for Anna, but I just don’t get the return of Duke Lavery. Plus, I haven’t been much of an Ian Buchanan fan and he just is not working within the series for me.

I have always loved the Scorpio story but I can’t stomach anything RC and FV have pulled with this. The Luke & Anna stuff was nauseating and sending Robert away on such a idiotic premise was a slap in the face of the fans. Bringing Duke back and ignoring Robert is just too sad. And this is why I can’t bear to watch GH anymore. No trust in the creators of the new soap OLTLatGH. I imagine they’ll bring in Bo Buchanan before Robert. Big fail here.

MK

My only concern was the re-write of History. Jonathan Paget was not working with Julian Jerome. Julian made it look like Paget killed Duke and Olivia’s dying breath told Anna to go to Duke (Jonathan) in Jail. Anna and Paget made plans to run away together. Paget confronted Julian and fought over the gun. Later Julian is found dead and Paget shows up at Anna’s and dies. So How could Paget and Julian be in co-hoots?

It’s like they made Heather with susan during Jason’s birth (But it was actually Heather’s Mom who was there).

I’m really hating Duke. I wasn’t watching GH back when Duke was on, so I have no history there. (I only know Ian Buchanan from his short stints on AMC and DOOL…neither of which characters I liked.) To have him come back as Duke, knowing that he’s holding Robin hostage, isn’t endearing him to me either. He’s still a scumbag! And creepy looking to boot!! He may have been handsome back in the day, but he has NOT aged well.

It appears looking at this that Ian Buchanan has had an eyelift/he looks like Tony Curtis use to after all his face lifts and trust me in person they look even creepier.

Never cared for Duke much now & all those years ago…How could he say he loves Anna & is holding Robin captive…………..He is sly & sneaky to me…I don’t trust him at all……When Anna finds out that Robin is alive & well . And Duke had her all this time & saw Anna at the place he is keeping her….What a slap in the face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or if Luke doesn’t find out first……………………….

Well, it looks like Ian Buchanan had some plastic surgery. Ugh! He now looks like the devil. I have never cared for his acting and don’t know what the writers hope to accomplish. Let Anna be with Luke and let him be the one to find Robin. That is more plausible.

Duke and Anna were great back in the day. We have to give it time for this story to unfold. Yah, it takes a little getting used to, but hey its a soap. I am just happy they are back on together. I personally loved Duke on GH, but hated him especially on Days. Terrible storyline. I would tell the haters to jump on you tube and watch some old GH’s. Duke and Anna have an absolute amazing chemistry.

The writer would do anything to keep from Robert back. Robert and Anna may general hospital in the 80th. Their love far each others were above the greatest love that is.And to put Anna with Robert best friend wasn’t the beast thing to do.Anna you are above that you never did go with any of Robert friends before . Anna what happen to your moral.

Duke does not love anna if he could keep Robin away from her. He is weird and I never liked them together. In real life he is nice and they are like best friends…but on the show they have no chemistry. I like her with Robert and I love Luke with Tracy! Period! Duke and Joe have been ruined for me because they are heartless and cruel. Please don’t make John McBain leave the show. How stupid for them to make John leave when Jason is leaving the show. Though I love Jason and Sam together….I think Sam and John… Read more »

I AMOST agree with all the opinions. I started watching GH in 1978. I quit watching here and there, in collage, jobs, etc. I didn’t watch the vast majority with ANNA AND DUKE. They had a wonderful love, relationship. GOD, OR GODDESS…WHOEVER…THANK YOU FRANK AND RON for turning best soap around with their UNDENIABLE chemistry and love. RC and FV have more than proven themselves! Brilliant?? and FOR REAL!!!!!? sad but true??

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

Courtesy/ABC

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Courtesy/ABC

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Charles Shaughnessy Takes Over the Role of GH’s Victor Cassadine

GH fans were in for a major surprise when on Thursday’s episode a kidnapped Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) got the shock of her life when her former lover, Victor Cassadine turned out to be alive and well and holding her hostage.

But there was another twist! DAYS favorite, Charles Shaughnessy (Shane), who previously was announced as coming to GH but in a mystery role, revealed himself to be … the new Victor Cassadine!  The former Mr. Sheffield of The Nanny has stepped into the role previously played by DAYS Thaao Penghlis (Tony).

Once the cat was out of the bag, in a tweet, Shaughnessy shared: “So excited to FINALLY be able to reveal details of my latest “gig”. 37 years on, I am back in the halls of @GeneralHospital, playing with the incredible @gatitweets. Having once been a vampire on @DisneyChannel, it’s not surprising I bring #VictorCassadine back from the dead!”

Shaughnessy is referring to the time he previously played Holly Sutton’s cousin, Alistair on the ABC daytime drama series back in 1984.

General Hospital viewers recall that Liesl shot and “killed” Victor back in 2014 then played by Penghlis.  In story, Victor believed he was the bio-dad of her son, Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). But a DNA test said that was not true, yet she shot him.  Leaving viewers wondering who is the dad? Hmmm.

So what did you think of the shocker? Shaughnessy as NuVictor Cassadine? Comment below.
