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

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 – Robin & Patrick – not included, I still love them, and a few storylines here and there like the MC crisis), so GH going off the air will make no more an impact or leave no bigger imprint on my life than right now that it’s still airing.

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.

with J. Travolta…….She played a real witch…She was the best dancer (professional) and she knew it……..A real perfectionist at that……She dumps him in this movie…………………Good actress…………….

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!

susan M.

I’m sure Anna won’t forgive Duke…

I don’t like Duke…He doesn’t add up … He’s very sneaky & a shady character..

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!

susan M.

He is weird ….I get an uneasy feeling about him……

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.

stephie

Why would Duke be so cruel to Anna and Robin?

susan M.
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!!!

MK

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

I like Robert & Luke better than Duke also !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

MK

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.

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).

Didn’t like the actor on Days and don’t like him on GH. Get rid of him fast!

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.

susan M.

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.

OK…He does look weird!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

maxine

Don’t like Anna and Duke, Didn’t like them in the 80th and don;t like them now.Will the soap let the dead stay dead,thank you very much.

Linda

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 are HOT! Please make John stay on the show and be with Sam.
More Maxie and make her be with Spinelli. More Felisha and Mac. So glad that Alexis is with Shawn. So happy Diane is back.
Get rid of that creepy nurse that Patrick dated. She is a phoney No good creepy creep!!! LOL….. I like Sabrina but she is too young for Patrick. Bring Robin Back already!
I could go on and on….LOL

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?? Ia n Buchannan has done NOTHING to himself in a negative way, except HAVING HIS EYES LIFTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He DOES kinda look like the devil! Here;s hoping it’s a relatively :new: prwill…um…mellow, or calm down…

Stupid, the new writers are killing GH. I am just sick about it. Who cares for Duke, by the way the plastic surgery have his eye brows so high up that looks like he is always surprised about something.
The soap is done with.

General Hospital

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.
