In a nice surprise for many GH fans, Daytime Emmy nominee Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) appeared on Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series.
While it had been revealed that Emma would make a return visit to GH during an upcoming episode, yesterday proved to be the day. On her spring break from school, Emma returns to Port Charles to spend some time with her grandmother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).
While the two have lunch at Kelly’s Diner, Griffin (Matt Cohen) shows up and hands over the DNA test results Anna had run on him confirming he is indeed Duke’s son. Emma, who loved Duke and misses him, chats with Griffin as he explains how he never got to know his dad. Emma says she doesn’t know what she would do if she ever lost her father, Patrick. Emma feels very sad for Griffin that he never got to know Duke, and upon his request, she fills him on what Duke was like.
The episode clearly anchored Griffin further into the Scorpio-Drake family, now that Emma is accepting and likes Griffin. Anna watched how the two interact and is very touched. Watch the scene between Emma and Grifin after the jump and then weigh-in!
