Is there any villain in the daytime soaps quite as spectacular as Cesar Faison (Anders Hove)? In deliciously intense scenes on Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, it was one of the showdowns, or shall we call them “face-off’s” (so many prothestic masks, ya know) that fans have been waiting for.
After capturing the “Flukealike”, who has a gun held on Julian (William deVry), Anna (Finola Hughes) rips the mask off the imposter, and lo and behold behind it was none other than Anna’s number one enemy, Faison! Horrified and shocked, Anna with tears of rage, upset, and fear rolling down her face cannot believe that Faison is in front of her … although she was aware he was on the loose somewhere!
However, the clever Dane twists the scene and places the blame on the situation on Anna for having him held captive for over a year on Spoon Island, something he begins to tell to Detective Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna)! Faison goes on to say how the police commish faked his transfer to Steinmauer Maximum Security Prison. He then confronts Anna in front of Dante, and says, “Don’t you lie to that boy, don’t you lie, after all we’ve been through!”
Anna has Faison taken away as her cover-ups begin to unravel! Later still, Anna has to finally tell Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), after having Julian arrested as well, that Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) is very much alive too!
And in the end of the episode, as we know, the Fluke story continues, with another intriguing twist, and we will leave that, at that.
Kudos to the amazing scene partnership between Finola Hughes and Anders Hove who truly make Anna and Faison one of the most twisted and greatest rivalries of the soaps of all-time!
