55 October 26th, 2013 GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Finds Out Jason Is Dead Courtesy Of Faison!

Courtesy/ABC

In another heart-stopping Friday cliffhanger episode of General Hospital, two major stories had some dynamic moments and they intensified.

First, alone with Faison (Anders Hove), Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is lamenting that her dear friend Jason (formerly Steve Burton) will come save her once he realizes she is alive and at Wyndemere!  Since Anna (Finola Hughes) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) are captive in the lab at Cassadine Island, Jason will eventually come and kill Faison and bring her back to Port Charles!

Only Faison hurts Robin in the worst possible way, revealing he shot Jason in the back and pushed into the pier and he is dead! Not believing him, Robin looks it up online that verifies that Jason is presumed dead.  Heartbroken and devastated over the loss of Jason, who willed her to live and move on with her life and towards the arms of Patrick (Jason Thompson), Faison and Robin have an emotional showdown.   Later, Robin is hit with another low blow when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) and Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) return from a visit for Ben to General Hospital and Britt reveals that Patrick is engaged to be married to Sabrina (Teresa Castillo)! Big kudos to the performance of Kimberly McCullough for making us recall the deep relationship Robin shared with Jason.  Now we ask, how much can Robin take before she will just break?  It’s bad news after bad news for the young heroine!

Elsewhere, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds out with conclusive evidence that Derek Wells (William deVry) is indeed Julian Jerome! And we also learn in a conversation between a locked-up Anna and Robert, that Robert knew and had a hand in Julian Jerome cutting a deal with the WSB to save his life.  Julian AKA Derek plans on killing Morgan (Bryan Craig) since he knows who he really is, but after Morgan gets riled up after seeing Sonny and Michael (Chad Duell) together as father and son, he tells Julian that he wants to bring down his father and he wants “in” on the destruction of Sonny!

So, what did you think of Robin learning the news of Jason’s death?  Did you expect that the powers-that-be would address it as this point in the storyline?  And, what of Sonny learning the identify of Derek Wells?  What will happen next?  Comment below?

    I recognize Robin, I recognize Faison, I recognize Anna but sorry I still don’t recognize Robert. I don’t think anyone has been able to write for this great character since the late Gloria Monty may she rest in peace.

    Hi, I’m curious what aspects of Robert you’re citing from the past. I agree that he was written as a buffoon when he and Luke went on those adventures to the Markham Islands with the monkey. But I recognize this Robert, especially Friday when he was calling Duke “Lavery” like he always did and not believing that he had gone straight, and lamenting how a guy with the name “Jerry Jacks” got the best of them.
    If you were going to mention that he’s not romancing Anna like he used to (personally I liked his romance of Katherine Delafield more, but I digress), well wait until they’re short on food and water and think they’re going to die soon….

    Well I recognize Robert and happy he is back and out of his coma. Anna & Robert aren’t going to die soon at anytime. They will get out of the lab soon.

    Shay replied

    Right on, GhLover…..I also believe that Britt and Robin could become fast friends, as they share the same derision for Obrecht and Faison, not to mention what is obviously going to be the mutual goal for Patrick to reunite with his true love…..me thinks that this would be an especially beneficial way to rehabilitate and redeem Britt in the eyes of the viewers, not to mention the proper Prince Nicky!!! And it would be ever so delicious if the divine Dr. Westbourne were the one to put the tko on the GBWB’s barmy bethrothal!!! Poetic…..even Dear Mutta would be proud of her daughter for that fine feat! Go Britta!!!!!

    Britts still a lair her baby is really Lulu’s & Dante’s watch what I say. Robin needs a friend right now but she needs Emma & Patrick more. ..

  3. Stephen Parker says:

    The writing has been seamless and the acting flawless. Kudos to all involved for dignifying the soap opera genre so superlatively! I have believed and maintain my belief that Robin’s efforts to reunite with Patrick may circuitously ebb and flow until the actual nuptials between Patrick and Sabrina. Given the underlying tenacity of Corinthos allegiance to family, I believe Morgan will travel a deadly course with Julian/Derek yet ultimately defer to blood allegiances and try and deter Sonny’s destruction.

    I thought the writing for all the characters has been good not great but close enough to how I think of them … I’m very fond of Anna / Robert they feel real .you know I was probably supposed to be sad for Robin learning about Jason but I found it rather compelling and exciting …Robin could have acted more convincing ly…….. By the way please keep Tony Geary in your arsenal of actors …..

    Another great week of GH!! I usually get caught up on an entire week’s worth of shows on the weekend, and usually I watch one or two episodes, then go do something else, and come back and finish later. Today, I started with Monday and I was glued to the TV, and before I knew it, I was finished with the entire week in one sitting, lol.

    Excellent storytelling, I love when they bring a lot of characters together under one big umbrella storyline. And needless to say, brilliant acting from Kimberly McCullough, Anders Hove, Sebastian Roche, Finola Hughes, Tristan Rodgers, Kathleen Gati, Tyler Christopher, and Kelly Thiebaud, among others.

    Between that storyline and everything with the Jerome’s and Sonny finding out that Derek Wells is really Julian Jerome, and the drama with Morgan and him offering to turn on his father to work with the enemy, everything on the show is coming together at the same time perfectly.

    Loved Friday’s episode!!! Faison and Dr. O were fabulous as cranky… almost child like… relatives! Loved Faison with Robin… sorry to have her hear about Jason that way! Then about Patrick’s engagement… she is just not getting any good news! She’s so close to home and yet so far away! Can’t wait to get Anna and Robert out of the lab and back in PC. Looking forward to seeing Sonny and Julian’s showdown. GH is doing great!!!

    Aren’t “Faibrecht” just the most delightfully dysfunctional duo of doom ever??? As the pompous Pied Piper of Perfidy to the Machiavellian Mutta, Cesar is one twisted and temperamental mister…what unmitigated gall he demonstrated by demanding his spurned suitor and co-conspirator “cook” him one of his favorite German delicacies….apparently he liked Liesl’s recipes in the kitchen, if not the insane inamorata’s “maskless” affections in the boudoir!!! And giving as good as she got, the steely superwoman responded with a requisitely ruthless retort! Oh well, you know how it is ladies….can’t live with them, can’t live without them!!!

    Well I did like the scene between Faison and Robin. The minute I heard Faison say Robin reminds him of her mother I got a chill up my spine, just thinking this guy might transfer his obsession for Anna to Robin. As for Morgan, one has to wonder if the gun in his back was the reason for asking Julian if he could join them. My guess, Morgan is only pretending to join them to save his neck and to find a way to save his father Sonny– but even I am wrong and he is really joining forces it should make for an interesting story, one I am willing to invest my time into watching.

    Let me preface this by saying I LOVE GH and I hope it continues for many years to come. And I find EACH storyline compelling….I do like the Jeromes a lot…and I’m looking forward to how they work Morgan into the plot; I love Lucy ;) and Scot…ISam/Derek/Alexis…Nicolas/Britt…Anna, Robert, Duke.etc, etc…BUT!

    I miss AJ…I don’t like how they built up his story and then dropped it/him out of existence…I don’t like how they’ve underused Duke, Mac, Felicia., Lucy…all four get just a few lines every few weeks…it’s insulting to them and disappointing to those of us who looked forward to their return.

    I don’t like how they underplay the romance between Duke and Anna…if they’re truly back together let’s see it. Give them passion…adventure…something! Nor do I like how Robert lay in a coma for a year and was never mentioned.

    As for Robin…I tend to think that she underacts. She just learned that her first love and one of her best friends is gone…I didn’t “feel” the devastation…especially after all she’s been through.

    I think that the characters need to be interwoven more…I’d like to see more people running into each other at the old diner…Kelly’s which is now run by Sean…more Quartermaine gatherings…which is why I thought the latest escapade that had Nicolas, Brit, Faison, Anna, Robert, Robin, Dr. O…worked so well!! It was great seeing an ensemble together!

    As for Sonny, he’s going to be walking a fine line between the Jerome’s and Morgan…and as for Ava…I always suspected she had affection for Morgan. Not necessarily in a romantic sense…but I was glad to see her protective side come out.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    A.J. is supposed to be back for Nov. sweeps…i too would like to see them interwoven more, especially Luke who should be showing Lulu some support during the baby custody storyline…Duke and Anna should be more romantic…currently they just seem like friends…Robert, Duke, Anna triangle would be nice…id like to see Duke and Alexis as a couple!!!

    Reply

    rebecca1 replied

    Reallly? I was hoping for Alexis and Julian…though she did dump Sean because of his mob involvement…but if I remember correctly was dumped by Sonny or she would have stayed with him. As for Duke…I’d like to see them give him much more story…and to amp up the Anna/Duke love affair…

    Shay replied

    It would seem in terms of “maturity” that Duke and Alexis would make an appropriate couple…he just isn’t quite matched in the “youth genes” department for the “Divine Devane” at this point! Anna and a revitalized Robert (aka, “The Silver Fox!”) have such cool chemistry this time around, so a rekindled romance should not be out of the question for them, particularly if they are trapped in “captivity” for very long!!! On the other hand, locating the right man for Ms. Davis is quite honestly an almost impossible task….NLG has never found another one like Lane Davies as Mason Capwell when they were paired to perfection on Santa Barbara….I think now she needs an older, well-established multi-millionaire gentleman to sweep her off her feet…you know, one of those old-fashioned, conservative business types, like a Donald Trump….definitely a “Republican!!!!” That would provide a real acting challenge for the uber-lib, Grahn….I think her head would actually explode with a storyline like THAT! LOL…..

    Patrick replied

    @shay

    LOL

    great write up of the lovelorn within reach but too laden with tantalizations she’d quip and whip in to a frenzy

    honest to god Alexis – it doesnt ‘hurt’

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I see good chemistry between Duke and Alexis…it seems there might be a Carly, Franco and Julian triangle…maybe? Alexis could still be paired with Duke but have feelings for Julian who she’ll probably end up with eventually!!!

    Reply

    rebecca1 replied

    Unless Julian “falls”…he’s only using Carly to get to Sonny.

    By the way, Julian Jerome is actually only eight years older than his “daughter” Sam. (in real life.) Gotta love soaps…

    I absolutely love the character of Robin, having watched her grow up from a smart, strong-willed, resilient little girl to a smart, strong-willed, resilient woman. Kimberly does a superb job! Her acting on this episode was especially great. The death of Jason was one blow and then she was hit with Patrick’s engagement. Bam! I can’t wait to see how she reacts next week.

    Kimberly McCullough is a fantastic actress: very real and very natural. She killed those scenes — and even made me remember that time (a year ago?) when Jason was “killed”.

    As for Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini, or “Cartini”, I have mixed feelings about them. Surely, they’re a vast improvement on the last regime. They’ve brought more balance to storylines and arranged for the return of some beloved vets. However, they are ignoring couples with real chemistry like Franco & Ava, Nikolas & Elizabeth and Sonny & Brenda. (Brenda’s not on canvas, of course, but when she was it was a complete waste of Vanessa Marcil’s considerable talent and chemistry with Maurice Benard.) Also, I’m not sure Cartini corrected fully the deeply misogynist streak of the last regime. Why can’t Ava have equal footing in the Jerome crime family? Why is so many female characters still focused on getting men, rather than having individual story lines? Finally, Ron Carlivati demands so much suspension of belief in his writing that it’s distracting me from really getting into the story lines, e.g. time jumps, smart characters spilling their secrets without caution etc etc.

    Yay to Robin’s return; it’s truly the most exciting story of the last couple of years. But I do wish Cartini would ramp up their game!

    Wow………………….As a 50+ yr vet, I can honestly say the team of Carlivati and Valentini is the BEST thing to happen to GH since the irreplaceable Gloria Monty. What they have done in a year, is leaps and bounds over what JFP did in a decade. The way they have brought back characters from years past, is sheer genius, and the future looks nothing but promising. I have not enjoyed this GH for years. And for those trained actors pointing out the negative aspects of Kimberley McCullough’s Robin, obviously have not watched “Robin” grow up. The character has never been a highly emotional character. Robin has always had a serious side to her, and KM has always told the story through her face, and that being said, she has not missed a beat with the story of Robin, as KM is the only person to have told the story. Thank you RC and FV for bringing back the General Hospital that I have been obsessed with for fifty years.

    Amen. Gh is the best its been since GLoria Monty! Its a magical time :) New and old characters being developped in such a rich way, like Britta being Faison’s daugther! Congratulations Ron and Frank, i simply cant say it enough. Thank you for Robin’s return, the casting of the divine Maura West and Britta of course!! Loving Gh its no longer a guilty pleasure, its a must watch pleasure ;)

    DAYS had a fantastic week with Nicole/Eric, Kristen/Brady and Theresa/Jennifer/JJ. How come they don’t get a page dedicated to that great work? Why must GH get one after nearly every episode? I’m starting to watch GH again, and yes, the direction is good (obvious, frustrating, but good) but it feels like there is favouritism. Not a mention for some outstanding work by DAYS? How could that possibly be?

    And frankly, I was hoping Robin was talking about Duke. When I started to realize she was glorifying Jason I did what I always did when she sang the praises of Jaseface during the Guza years, I rolled my eyes and let my mind wander.

    Hey Shay! My brother’s name is Jason, and he once had a girl come over. Being the absolute twit that she was, she called him “Jaseface”. To this day, many years later, I still tease him with the name and will use it against him when I want to torture him even more. Works everytime :) .

    I know, right ?!?!

    I liken it to…. the little engine that could. Leave well enuf alone… NBC/Sony/DAYS

    it’s fine where it’s at…. I guess, cause, if it’s not lauded…. near enuf… I’ll take over the soap box

    1. I’m dreading the eventual exit: The much deserved, lauded Eileen Davidson
    2. where is Blake Berris… need ME so much Nick.

    soap box chatter

    sometimes, I wish evil deeds, bad behaviours ‘should’ WIN

    you can see the writing on the wall… as it were… and yet… I continue to root for Kristen, Theresa, the DiMera’s… LOVE Nick. hell… bring back Vargas

    I was nonplussed… Livid… blindly flailing about… when Jenn light in to Theresa.. and vented her holistic rant at Theresa… telling her to stay away from her son. dang! I so wish Abbi had in fact just moved out of Jenn’s house as well… Abbi telling her mom as did JJ they would never speak to her again…. Oh Jenn was Haggie Maggied out… forlorn and askance… clearly unable to deal with… let alone ACT her way out of ALL her broods hormonal rages

    oh… it’s draining to go there…. don’t get me started … it’s daniel

    saint… the pillar of the earth… supercharged with goodness… the superhero who will right the wrongs of “his” friends… ALL his friends…. Daniel cares about everyone… all the women are at his feet and all the men are appreciative of his godlike …. OH…. forget it

    course the writers can’t seem to

    daniel has the: kristens “infamous BLUE flash drive” drool – it’s Father Eric… and Kristen/Nicole…

    I just didn’t appreciate that it seems like Theresa is taking all the “blame” for daniel and Jenn’s mt. Sinai, bible thumping, virtuous, sainthood… yawn

    the writers’ need to clip their wings… banish them

    I don’t know… what do you think?

    currently… on DAYS…. it’s high stakes drama unfolding…. and one can’t help but know the outcome… yet reel your gut for fun… otherworldly shenanigans forthright to camp it up… and see the righteous flail about

    and toast the artists’ who we revel in… that drive how good DAYS continues to be

    Reply

    Jules replied

    It’s my little soap too. I know many consider GH to be because it’s been on the brink of cancellation and “needs the love”, but DAYS is in just as much peril! It’s now being renewed year to year, and those years go by fast.

    I hope after ED exits they can keep the momentum going. The writers seem to be doing a good job with almost every story on canvas- making them interesting, connecting many characters, giving great hooks and allowing them to organically spawn other stories. So I have hope it will continue. But if it doesn’t, then it stinks even more if DAYS isn’t receiving the love it so richly deserves when they ARE doing amazing work. I mean the stuff this past week with Ari and Greg were as perfect as it comes.

    I hope they give Blake Berris more to do. He’s more than proven what an asset he is. And he can do so much.

    Thanks for your thoughts Patrick.

    Justin Kiriakis’ uber talent Wally Kurth

    could this be THE ‘time’ to trot out the turbulence that Justin could reel… and bring to the forefront intelligence, hard knocks delivery we know he’s capable.

    it was intriguing to see Justin and EJ side by side and once at odds… to revel in… the Kiriakis and DiMera Empires going at it….

    the eventual exits of Kristen and Chandler Massey hasten their heed (days production) to further along… how much the cast currently has….

    I hope the story with Kate, Jordan, and Rafe… (yes, Rafe is TOTAL EYE candy.. but worthwhile) i still hope… but… I like what someone else who posted… Jordan could be the offspring of John Black and possibly Kristen…. hopefully this avenue will lead… as jordan can… and keep Kate and Rafe on their ‘big’ toes

    better late than never… it totally nonplussed me… why did they so diss Jack… ie: with the 18-20 years ago… jack sexually assaulted Kayla… which pissed me off that once again.. Daniel was in the mix… god… doesn’t he lack the vitality to contribute… anyway… it seemed unnecessary to bring up past fault/hurt to give JJ his comeuppance and make it seem like this will boost overkill Daniel image.

    Great story behind the “Jaceface,” Jules! (Guess your mom liked names that started with a “J” then?) I simply surmised that you came up with it to dead-right describe the single stony expression that SB wore throughout his stint as Mr. Morgan….little did I know! Thanks for sharing…. ; )

    I hope that bringing back the dynamic of Duke & Anna with Robert via the Derek Wells reveal is used as major story. There is nothing that would make me happy to tune in more. So much history there and Friday’s ep was all the more captivating due to that thread tying the ep together.

    I love the days on GH when I do NOT have to see Sonny or Carly or Franco on my screen. The Dimpled Don and Company make it a chore to stay tuned in. In terms of the Jeromes, I’d rather see the Alexis and Sam side of the potential story than anything to do with Sonny, Morgan, Michael and Kiki. I just don’t care enough about them to follow what they know or do.

    Let’s get back to the Robin story and all it entails, even if it means Sabrina and Felix on my screen.
