Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital will be remembered for one of the long-awaited moments that fans of the series have been waiting for since the announced return of Kimberly McCullough (Robin)!
Playing these high stakes, important to the audience, emotional moments, can be a quite daunting task for the actors involved, because they hope not to disappoint their legions of fans who have stuck through the storyline waiting for the payoffs!
Yesterday, after almost two years of torture at the hands of the super-villains of the series, Robin was finally reunited with her mother, Anna Devane. First, we must give Kimberly McCullough a huge round of applause and major kudos. The moment where she sees her mother for the first time, and goes in for the clinch and in the loving arms of Anna for the first time in what seemed like an eternitym was so beautifully played by McCullough that we bought every single moment of it. With tears streaming down her face, McCullough was able to play the anguish and horror of what she had been through, and the closure of finally being in the safe arms of her mother! It was major hankie moments for the audience and for Robin, who finally had some relief that her ordeal has almost come to an end!
And what can we say about Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) that has not been said? The set-up of the reunion scenes harkened back to the old days 0f GH with the classic moment of when little Robin was reunited with Robin the last time she was kidnapped and taken from her mother. History had repeated itself, and Robin and Anna triumphed over evil again! Hughes was exquisite as well! Add to that, the emotions of Robin’s father, Robert (Tristan Rogers) watching the moment go down, and the Devane/Scorpio’s were once again … at least for the time being … a united front … and a family again!
Later in the episode, McCullough as Robin continues to bring us to tears, when she was reunited with Duke (Ian Buchanan), the real Duke for the first time in decades! And, the story continues today… will Robin get to Patrick (Jason Thompson) in time to stop his wedding to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo)?
