75 October 20th, 2013 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas Finds Robin! Britt Comes Face to Face with Faison! Patrick Asks Sabrina To Marry Him! Dr. Obrecht is Humiliated!

Courtesy/ABC

That’ some headline, eh?  Well, it was another, BAM, BAM, BAM, Friday cliffhanger over at General Hospital leaving us breathless for what will happen next!

In a stunning sequence in the last few minutes of the episode, as each of these key scenes were inter-cut and juxtaposed against each other, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) stumbled upon Robin (Kimberly McCullough) in the lab on Cassadine Island!  The shock on Robin’s face gave us true hope that she finally may get out of captivity! Does the Prince save her?  Meanwhile, just as Robin sees a friendly and familiar face, Patrick (Jason Thompson), after watching the DVD from Robin that she left him a long time ago, urging him to move on with his life, find a woman to love, and be a family again, says to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), “Marry me!”

And while all that was playing out, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) finally comes face to face with her psycho father, Faison (Anders Hove) who has baby Ben with him!  Britt had just knocked out her mother, Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), before finding Faison with her son!  What will happen when the father/daughter showdown begins?

However, the best performance of the entire episode has to go to Kathleen Gati!  For in scenes where she wants to seduce Faison (since she is fixated, obsessed, and longs for the man), he trashes her advances.  In fact, he asks her to wear the “Anna” mask if she truly will do anything for him!  In tears and devastated by his humiliating request, Liesl hauls off and slaps Faison  … damn hard might we add!   She then threatens him that she is now the one with the most power and storms out!   This cannot be good for what could be in store for the real Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)!

We have to give kudos to General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini, and head writer Ron Carlivati, for having so many characters on Cassadine Island, or about to descend on Cassadine Island (as will be the case with Robert and Anna).  It reminds us of the good old days of classic GH, where everyone got mixed up in the big mystery … somehow!

So, what did you think of the ending of Friday’s General Hospital?  (You can watch the final minutes in the clip below) What was your favorite part?  What did you think of the twisted scene between Faison and Dr. O?  Comment below!

    yaaaaa!!

    Dr. Obrecht and Faison!
    They are the best of the best!!
    I can’t get enough of them, they are dynamite together!!

    Dr. O has some of the best humor lines I’ve ever head on a soap yet she is a #1 villain!!
    And Faison! WOW I do not have a word befitting of praise for him!!

    I can only hope both will be a fixture of GH for a very very long time!!!!

    (this Robin story fails in comparison to Faison and Dr. O …….

    FANS

    We All have to rally around Kathleen Gati…

    Dr Mean THE QUEEN O.

    I Love You…. We Love You….

    GH- Production

    right the wrongs… and find a way to Keep Dr. O on the canvas… and trot out the Shakespearean “Othello” Faison -

    who would have thought… all the drama that ensued with Britt’a and beloved “her” beloved Ben

    I applaud Britt’a for – it had to be quaking in her boots – courageous
    to stand up against her showstopping parents…

    the world is opening up for Britt

    and I love it….

    love her and Nicholas

    Shay replied

    Although I am not a Faison fan, per se, I do have to admit the crotchety criminal creaming Dr. O with his torrent of tart Teutonic taunts yesterday was truly a treat. Those two terrifying treasures working together is going to make for one tension-tinged trip!!!! It seems as though the frisky frau has finally “faced” the future…there will be no “Cesar” dynasty of which she will be evil empress, and now she’ll be even more wicked and wretched in her retribution. Can’t wait!!!! Whatever it takes, the love-scorned Liesl must remain indefinitely on the GH radar so as to exact her revenge for being wronged.

    LOL…. high 5

    I say… whatever it takes to further the ensuing flight of Serial…. this story has wings of it’s own…. and has catapulted to the TOP.

    Britt, Dr. O, Faison, Ben, Nicholas, Patrick, Anna, Robin, Emma, Robert, Mac

    I loved it!! When I saw Faison with the Anna Mask I just knew he would ask her to put it on!!! LOL!! I really liked how everything worked well together. From when Nicholas found Robin to where Patrick proposed to Sabrina. Great, great writing!! I also liked when Britt ran into her mother and pushed her aside as she crumpled to the floor! Now we get to see Scorpio and Anna come upon her. I just don’t know how Britt will be against papa Faison! Just really enjoying this storyline!

    Shay replied

    The most delightful detail was when the vanquished vixen “unmasked” her horrible humiliation at the hands of her haggard honey to Anna and Robert. Scorpio’s snarky show of schadenfreude was simply scrumptious….he is such a sexy scamp!!!!

    This was a fantastic episode! I was very pleasantly surprised that NICKOLAS is the one to find Robin! That was awesome! Nikolas and Robin were friends for a long time, and I am so glad he finds her first! I felt bad for Dr. O because she did everything she could to make Fiason want her in his life, but he is just totally fixated on Anna and I knew he wanted Dr. O to put on that Anna mask. Poor woman, shot down again for Anna Devane.

    Shay replied

    I’ll forgive you, jimh, as long as your only future “Sappy” wedding fantasies include her being dumped at the altar as Robin magically reappears to reclaim her family…if we are even forced to see this ludicrous love farce proceed up to that ridiculous point. I’m hoping the “fairytale” will all crash and burn before then….with the GBWB to be thereafter and forever known as “Sobby.”

    SUSAN M. replied

    I agree! Patrick will never marry Sabrina. He will see Robin and won’t rememeber
    Sabrina..He doesn’t love Sabrina the way he has always loved Robin(he’s one true love )! Soul Mates (Robin & Patrick)!!!!

    Robin/Kimberly McCullough is on GH to give closure to her story then she is gone..
    Don’t count on a happy ever after for her and Patrick..

    Never forget her character was killed off because she had no plans of returning, but RC appeased fans and kept her alive, now is the wrap up/closure, then bye bye Kimberly McCullough..

    Reply

    KansasGuest replied

    McCullough is not doing a cameo for a couple of weeks on GH. She signed an actual contract, which is never done unless the term is for at least 6 months. You never know what goes on behind-the-scenes. Jason Thompson may well have other ambitions like a primetime acting gig, & they could write off the entire family into the sunset.

    CTwildheart replied

    One of the rare times I disagree with you Su, Kansas has it correct. Even though we don’t know the length…she has signed a contract, no short term wrap up and bye bye. (Maybe a long term wrap up and then goodbye?!)

    su0000 replied

    ohhh crips she is such a terrible actor, that is bad news ..
    I could only hope the contract is for free coffee, only ..

    well, she will pale in the presence of the great ones, for sure..

    (she walked out now she comes begging back ahhaa)

  16. Sally says:

    I don’t understand why everyone is down on sabrina. She hung in there through all Patrick’s crap. At least let her go out gracefully if robin and Patrick go back. Not a fan of robins anymore and I’ve been watching g for 40 years. I liked Patrick snd sabrina. I think they’re doing a lousy job with her with this storyline.

    Reply

    CTwildheart replied

    Still a fan of Robins…but I also really like Sabrina. She has done nothing to earn anyone’s ire or hate and when Robin is known to be alive, she will step aside graciously. Of course she will still be hurt and devastated, but it’s great story for her to play.

    Troy Turner replied

    I love Sabrina as well, but I’m afraid of what this storyline will be-and it won’t end well for her; all because the Prodigal Princess decided to deem us worthy of her presence. Ugh

    CTwildheart replied

    I am very happy that Kimberly has returned as Robin. Don’t consider her the prodigal princess. Say what you want character wise all day long, but no need to bash any actor.

  17. heidi says:

    Loved it all!!! But the reactions on Nik and Robin’s faces were fabulous!!! I loved seeing Faison with Britt and I loved Tracy’s one way discussion with Luke!!! Actually seeing Patrick ask Sabrina to marry him after what we had been seeing was maddening and I hope it was a dream on his part and that he never actually uttered those words to her.

    Loving GH and can’t wait for everyone to converge on Cassadine Island!!! I would love to see Laura and Stephan be there too!!!

    Unrequited love– any woman who has been there felt Dr. O’s pain in those scenes. I still would love to see a back story on that couple with the actress who plays Britt as the young Dr. O and the guy who plays Silias as a young Faison— at least he has the hair for it. LOL.

    Patrick replied

    believe you me…. male or female: “…Unrequited love– any woman who has been there felt Dr. O’s pain in those scenes.”

    it was heartbreaking…. gut-wrenching… oh man: love is

    Kathleen Gati is a show unto herself. She captures my attention…. I watch her every move… her delivery… I liken her to shakespearean…. highly anticipated performance and baited

    ————-

    she’s going out in a blaze of glory…. if this is the last we’ll see of her…

    I sincerely hope not… her presence alone.. and with Britt’a and Ben… sans Faison and “cesar”… dang! isn’t that dreamed up drama… she immersed herself in…. to the gills

    Dr. O… you have FANS

    anyway… realism… I know quite well what that was like. i’ll simply say…. it is:

    mine: “The one that got away”

    Ms. Gati – geez every gamut of delivery…. A to Z is smolder… anger, sadness, hurt, pangs of Love bursting…. she has an heir of elegance

    she’s sodiered on for “the cause”

    to see her break that mold…. and see her heart open… along with her Daughter… for the love of themselves and Ben

    What a great couple of days on Cassadine Island and in Port Charles, tying up so many loose ends with so many great characters-Anna, Britt, Faison, Dr. O, Robin, Patrick, etc.! Oh, and I absolutely love Derek Wells/Julian Jerome! The actor has chemistry with everyone on the show. These are the type of characters and great storylines we love to see, not the ridiculous “love” triangle between Michael, Kiki, and nuMorgan. Please send Kristen Alderson back to Llanview, nuMorgan back to elementary school, and give the talented Chad Duell a good storyline to show his acting chops! Please do not waste air-time on this bunch. Oh, and what has happened to AJ Quartermaine? Still in jail? I haven’t seen him.

    The thing I like best about Faison is that his evilness does not seem to have been diluted by the writers as so many other villians have over time. While I love Sonny, he has become completely impotent as a mob lord. Helena comes across as an old guard dog -all bark, no bite. And I roll my eyes whenever Heather is on screen. I usually just skip those scenes altogether. I hope the writers keep Faison as sick and twisted as always and never turn him into milktoast like they did with Stavros and Stefan.

    All the Sabrina haters…Come on, guys! I’m sure most of you would like her if Robin had indeed passed away, and thus not view Sabrina as an interloper. She doesn’t deserve all the scorn from the GH fans. I realize that KMc is a fan favorite, as she has been on the show since she was a child. But just as Patrick’s character evolved once he became involved with Robin, I believe his character has evolved again once becoming involved with Sabrina. He used to be a shallow man interested in one-night stands. The fact that he fell for a character like Sabrina, who was initially a plain Jane, proves that he was drawn to her inner beauty, her warm spirit, and her caring attitude towards him and Emma. I love watching the tender scenes between Sabrina and Emma. As a nurse, Sabrina is a natural caregiver, which is clearly evident when she interacts with Emma. Plus, she is physically beautiful. Why wouldn’t Patrick want to be with her? She was willing to walk away and date Milo when Patrick brushed her off after she told him the way she felt. It was Patrick who came back to her, expressed that he was interested in her, and wanted a second chance. She was completely supportive and nonjudgmental when she believed Patrick was the father of Britt’s baby, and she has tolerated his frequent musings about Robin, even though she is now the woman in his life. She even informed Patrick that he could take back his marriage proposal when she felt that he may have proposed hastily. By the way, in an era of over-the-top proposals (see Kanye and Kim marriage proposal), Patrick’s proposal to Sabrina was heartfelt, sincere, and beautiful. Sabrina clearly has a backbone, and fights for what she believes in, as demonstrated when she berated Britt after she learned that Britt had falsely named Patrick as her baby daddy. I’ve loved watching the relationship between Patrick and Sabrina evolve. She would make a lovely addition to the Drake family! I fear her fate once Robin returns…

    I have a feeling Sabrina and Patrick may still get married even after Robin returns.Time will tell.I believe Sabrinas ex boyfriend is going to cause alot of problem in the future.I agree with Eden’s comment.
    I actually felt sorry for LuLu and Maxi in court for custody.Giving Spinelli custody was a surprise.I believe he will be a good father.I think he is going to ask Elli to marry him and that is going to cause alot of problems with the baby raising with Maxi.I doubt he will marry Maxi.I think Ellie will be the mother figure coming up in this story line with the baby.We will see.
