On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, the very clever team of executive producer Frank Valentini, and head writer Ron Carlivati, came up with a unique twist that brought several stories together, and also paid an homage to the ABC Daytime soaps of the past!
While Holly (Emma Samms) and Luke (Anthony Geary) were hot on the trail of Jerry Jacks, they landed in the Pennsylvania in the town of Corinth, and the house they came upon for their search, Luke recalled was the same place where the notorious “Loving Murders” took place years ago, to which Holly held up a picture of the murderess Gwyneth Alden (Christine L. Tudor) who was the Corinth Serial Killer. Holly related the story of why Gwyneth went on a killing spree, “She wiped out pretty much all of her friends and family in some twisted attempt to wipe away their pain.” Luke then said how the survivors moved to The City (which was Loving’s spin-off when ABC tried to salvage the show).
But this all dovetailed into the major story of the MIA and believed dead Robin Scorpio Drake (Kimberly McCullough), when Dr. Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) recalled to her daughter, Britt something she had done. Next, we see a flashback of Robin in a wheelchair with her wrists tied to it, being wheeled into the same abandoned mansion that Holly and Luke are at now by Dr. O. Then, Dr. O asked someone , “What should they do with Robin now?”
Luke and Holly also found a locked closet door behind a bookcase that Luke was determined to open! The duo also found pictures of Cabot Alden (Wesley Addy) and Tricia Alden (Noelle Beck) ! So now the question is who, or what, is on the other side of the secret door? As ABC Daytime fans recall, Faison (Anders Hove) made an appearance and crossed over to Loving in 1993. Has GH come up with a shocker to propel the story of Jerry/Faison/Dr Olbrecht/Luke/Holly/ and Robin?
What did you think of the nod to Loving today? And where things will lead now that we know Robin was in Corinth? Comment below!
