We were wondering when this scene between the all-time best mother/daughter duo in soaps, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin), would come to fruition. That moment happened on Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital. After Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin break the news to their daughter Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) that they are all moving to California, because mommy and daddy got new jobs, it then falls upon Robin to in turn break the news to Anna.
In a scene alone with her mother, Robin informs Anna of the big move and her plans. With tears streaming down her face, Anna realizes she must let Robin go make a new start with her family after so much time has elapsed that the Drake family have all been together. As much as this hurts Anna so much to have to let Robin go, and to say goodbye to her granddaughter, Robin explains they are only an airflight away. Anna says she will visit. Then Robin asks Anna to come with her! Anna says she can’t. She has business in Port Charles she must take care of. This also plays into Anna’s sorrow over losing Duke, and now having to say goodbye to the Drake clan.
When Patrick and Emma join the scene and the conversation, the viewers and Anna learn at the same time that Robin, Patrick, amd Emma must leave tomorrow for Berkeley. They even have temporary housing already lined-up for them. Emma puts her foot down and says they are not leaving Port Charles until Patrick and Robin have a wedding! We fade to black.
