Monday’s episode of General Hospital was well worth the wait, after our reported review of last Friday’s cliffhanger!
There were some tender moments, and some wonderfully performed scenes from the ensemble cast of the ABC soap opera as Robin finally came face to face and had some words with her beloved father, Robert and then the capper … at the end of the episode the hankie-filled moment when Anna lays eyes on Robin for the first time in almost two years!
Kimberly McCullough (Robin) showed us why she is still, and will always be that beloved gal that we watched grow up on GH when she uttered, “Daddy!” upon seeing Robert (Tristan Rogers)! It was a very touching moment for long time GH fans.
We have to give kudos again to the amazing Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht) who is able to deliver some pretty outrageous dialog, and wonderful one-liners, as she spewing her venom at Anna (Finola Hughes) and Duke (Ian Buchanan) over Faison’s (Anders Hove) obsession with Anna. And yet we feel and understand in a twisted way, Liesl’s emotional pain!
And how great was Finola Hughes! You got to love Anna Devane and how she undermines the criminals. It is great to see a woman of such power on soap operas! In another hankie-filled moment, Anna tells Duke, after they have finally got Dr. O tied up and out of the way, that Robin is alive. Duke tells Anna to go find her, which sets up the final moments of the episode when Anna sees Robin!
Anthony Geary (Luke) showed why he once again is one of the finest actors, if not the finest in the genre! In his showdown scene with Faison, Luke recalled the horror and pain that Faison caused his family by brainwashing Lucky and turning him against him and Laura … and for what he has done to Robert, Anna and Robin. Geary said it all in his eyes, before he attempted to shoot Faison.
A couple of our favorite lines of the day: Anna calling Obrecht, in a turn of the tables, “You stupid cow” and when Michael Saucedo, who returned as Juan Santiago, told Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that he married a wonderful woman named, “Becky!” That was a very cute nod by the writing team on Michael and Becky’s real life relationship.
Patrick (Jason Thompson) got an earful from Ava Jerome played by the electric Maura West. Ava tells him that Robin is alive, and Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) also had a nice moment when Juan showed up with her mother’s wedding dress which meant so much to Sabrina. And … there’s still more drama to come in the days ahead!
So, what was your favorite moment from yesterday’s episode of GH? Was it Robin coming face to face with Anna? What performance stood out to you? Let us know!
