On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Robin finally told her mother, Anna that she is leaving Port Charles. And that set the stage for the final goodbye scene … for now … between the remarkable on-screen mother/daughter duo played by Finola Hughes (Anna) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin).
And while many in the audience are having a difficult time swallowing Robin’s exit storyline with good reason, Anna asked the questions anyone would have about Robin’s decision to depart her home, especially since she just got back after two years of being tortured: “What about Emma, Patrick, and me?” asked Anna. Robin stands by her decision. She asks her mother to trust her that this is something she just has to do.
However, that being said, we couldn’t help but marvel at the beautiful performance by Finola Hughes, whose sadness and heartbreak registered throughout Anna’s face, body, and soul. She once again had to say goodbye to Robin. And once again to drive home the emotional throughline of the situation, Robin tells Anna she always finds her way back to her. Cue the always classic and moving clip of little Robin running into the arms of Anna, after her kidnapping as a child.
So, what do you think of the scene and the performances by Finola Hughes and Kimberly McCullough? Did you reach for the hankies? Or, were you just so mad at the story that you couldn’t go there?
