69 July 29th, 2012 GH’s Robin’s Electro-Shock! Dr. Ewen Keenan revealed as a Pawn? Who is behind the sinister Plot to Destroy the Drakes & Anna?

Courtesy/ABC

This past week on General Hospital saw spine-tingling drama unfold with the return of Kimberly McCullough (Robin) in key scenes that keeps the Robin Scorpio Drake kidnapping moving forward, without the beloved McCullough returning to the series in any full time capacity as of now.

What we saw and what we learned:  Robin was given a cruel dose of electro-shock therapy while being held against her will at Ferncliff!  The doctor who shows up in charge of her case turns out to be none other than, wait for it, Dr. Ewen Keenan! (Nathin Butler)  Ewen reveals he cannot let anyone know Robin is alive and then tells her she is going to be transported to Switzerland.   The now seemingly dastardly doc then has a phone call with someone who is clearly masterminding the plot against Robin, Patrick, and Anna from a far ….   but, just who is it?  Is Ewen just a pawn in this vendetta?  So many questions!

Meanwhile, with some shocking news from Heather, that Robin is alive, Anna frantically goes to search Ferncliff in heartbreaking scenes, while in other heartbreaking scenes, Patrick decides to seek help from his drug addiction under the care of Dr. Ewen Keenan, who he thinks is a good man, and whom he also tells his friend, Elizabeth to consider giving another chance at romance!

Amazing performances once again by Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jason Thompson (Patrick) and who of us in the viewing audience was not upset to see our Robin in this kind of horrific danger!

So soapers, who do you think is behind the plot to take Robin from her loved ones? Faison? A Cassadine? A relative of Lisa Niles?  Someone else from Anna, Robin’s or Patrick’s past?  Let us know your thoughts and what you thought of the episodes!

    I am in love with this show thanks to the brilliance of Ron and Frank who are the best in the business. How lucky are we to have them? This show is so amazing with every twist and turn new stories. Really I hope we find out who is behind Keenan. It seems like it can only be Faison but with the writers, I have no idea. Never in a million years thought than Dr Keenan was involved.

    I hope it’s Faison! But, I have a feeling they’ll connect it with OLTL – because that seems to be Ron’s pattern. Would it if it was Grant Putnam too!

    very true.. but wouldn’t it be great if it was the evil Ivan Kippling?

    LOVE IT. i THINK IT IS fAISON OR hELENA. THEY DID THIS TO lUCKY.

    Christy replied

    oh! I remember him! he was on Spiderman too. Any time I see him, on any show, I say “Dr. Ivan Kippling!”

    yeah, I figure it’s Helena, or possibly Faison too.

  4. Ruth says:

    I think it’s Faison…He’s out to get Anna, and what better way than to take her daughter. Anna is already planning on going to Switzerland based on what Heather told her, he’s drawing her out..

    Its not Faison – he would of done it himself. That is not Faison’s style. He is dead and not coming back. I think it’s Lisa’s brother.

    Oh, and I think the good doctor Keenan is Faison’s son!!!!!

    Ruth, I think you are right because Faison helped Helena kidnap Lucky and Keenan was working for Helena when he first came on.

    It’s not Faison – he does his work himself

    Now that sounds like a good possibility!

    If I’m remembering correctly didn’t the doc come in contact with Helena? Maybe they are going to pull out yet another retread with Helena being the person pulling the strings. Ewen was hot for Helena’s daughter, (can’t remember her name which shows how much that story interested me), so could be she has him convinced the daughter is alive after all and is holding it over his head. As to why she is picking on the Scorpio’s this time around….well, it’s Helena, does she even need a real reason? If KM is not interested in coming back I wish they’d just go on and leave her dead. There are plenty of people in the cast to write a decent story for.

    It’s probably someone lame like Jerry Jacks. Don’t get me wrong, Jerry is an evil mofo fully capable of something as diabolical as this. It’s just there is no logic for why he’d target Robin like this. The first time he targeted Robin it was random so unless they come up with some other story of how he’s been after her all along, it makes no damn sense. Faison makes sense but I feel like he wouldn’t be this cruel to Robin.

    I want to give a shout out to Kimberly McCullough. She may have had to film these scenes in a rush but I thought she was excellent too. There were two distinct moments when she killed it and Robin’s anguish made my heart hurt for hours afterward. 1. When she was restrained to the bed and willed Patrick to come find her as the tears rolled down her face. 2. Right before she was shocked, she called out to all her loved ones and promised she wouldn’t forget them. Absolutely heartbreaking scenes.

    Robin’s life is like a Shakespearean tragedy, always. I can’t think of a GH character who deserves happiness and a good life more than she does, but danger and physical/emotional pain always courts her. Sad.

    Finola Hugues was also excellent as Anna this week. I cried as she became determined to find Robin. The character has never been more compelling.

    Jason Thompson gave another great week of performances but I will have to see Patrick be the stupid clueless dolt again and he’s in for plenty of that.

    Veronica -

    Beautiful read. So well said. I too… was in tears… LOL. Oye! This is one of the best written storylines.

    Quality stuff done with excellence… Anna, Patrick, Robin….even, Matt.

    This story above all else going on in Port Charles… has my attention span.

    So much debate going on about Sam and Jason, and Sam and McBain…

    Robin’s tragic “death”

    Patrick’s aftermath….

    has me reeling.

    watching Anna- get her due… A lioness fighting for her cub… is top drawer… it’s so heartfelt, gut-wrenching to watch her loving Robin… her daughter… after not being on the show for years… what with Mac looking after Robin…. it’s like Anna was never gone… so, we’re witnessing “Shakespeare”.

    It has got to be Faison he has had it in for Robin’s parents for years, He’s obsessed w/Anna hate Robert, w a passion he was even obsessed w/Felicia he doesn’t like Mac either..Plus, he tried to kidnapped Robin before.

    It would be nice to have something new. Even though this story is pretty good, it’s been done before. CarTini, when are you going to start writing original stories for GH and not re-treds of OLTL stories?

  10. Terri says:

    I agree with the idea that it might connect back to OLTL and that the one who is holding Victor is involved somehow and also working for someone higher up. It could be Faison with connections out side of Port Charles that expands to Llanview. GH has been the best it’s been in many many years thanks to Ron and Frank and the crossovers from OLTL. I am looking forward to the show every day, this is the first time in years. Hopefully Robins kidnapping won’t go on too long and we will see her back on GH in a full-time capacity! Her husband and daughter need her as well as the rest of the family.

    I think it’s either Jerry Jax. He always shows up & does something terrible. Faison is a blast from the past. What if it is Duke? Or someone trying to avenge Lisa Niles? Maybe it is Lisa Niles & she never died. Oh boy!

    Patrick replied

    Wow. imagine…. Anna having a chance for payback…. A mother bear… fighting for her cub… at long last… Robin.

    Anna, has me in tears… for her child. Finola lovingly portrays such LOVE for Robin.

    I loved the character, Lisa Niles… Brianna Brown. She had all the makings of a true soap villain. however, they really wrote her out… ie: the syringe with hiv blood… intended for patrick, was over the top. no redemption value.

    This is must watch mode… for Anna…. Finola Hughes is on fire…. you don’t mess with a mother, with-out…her child.

    Wasn’t he already involved w/Helena? The show seems so different now I’m having a hard time remembering the past lol – I would imagine that whoever has Robin also has Trevor St. John’s Todd :D . I sure hope so anyway !!

    The show has me gripped – I don’t fast forward – I just enjoy it…what a new thing. I think Jason Thompson is SO good that he could win an Oscar, he amazes me with the depth of his emotions – the whole spectrum, good and bad. I love that Robin is showing up – I miss her and hope she comes back. The other good thing about Ron’s version of GH is that anyone in the cast could do something else, too – because no one is the primary focus.

    If Keenan ended up being Faison’s son – I could deal with that – that would be SO much fun, as long as Faison showed up too, rather than just being implied. Can’t wait to see how this unfolds.

    I really think its Robert. They way he vanished during Robins memorial never really made much sense to me. Also Ewen is Australian, he culd easily be a contact of Roberts, and it makes sense Robert would want to bring Robin back from the dead. My grandma thinks maybe Ewen is trying to cure AIDS because hes a doctor LOL. As long as she isnt a clone I’ll be happy lol

    Why would Robert want to hurt his own daughter with shock therapy. Could be an enemy of Roberts. Robert vanished to go after his so called son that Luke told him was his. Guess you missed that part.

  16. Mike Dubin says:

    If they can, get the mastermind to be none other than Dr. David Hayward! Would be a great way to tie AMC legacy to GH in some way, he has ties to Anna, and.. he kidnapped her and is using as a guinea pig for his continued Orpheus project, this time using it to hopefully cure HIV. It can be further revealed that Lisa Niles never switched Robin’s meds as she thought, it was David. He needed her counts to go as low as they could before he could do his testing…. then she went and got on a new protocol and messed it all up, so he had to isolate her.. the explosion was the perfect opportunity.

    Oh yeah I forgot about Robert and Anna until now, but the rest of what you are suggesting, why would he do this to Robin purposely killing her. His other patients died from mishaps…

    I love Robin since the beginning, I love Robert, Anna, Patrick, and I was chock all the way that it was Dr. Keenan! The 3 actors before & since have done A plus job on this story line and A plus to the new staff producer, director’s, writing team etc. Its just AWESOME!!!

    And another story line I love and can’t wait for Sam to finally get proof for what she’s know all alone that her baby is a live and is Jason!!! And that this will bring her & Jason back together and to know what I’ve thought alone that his brother is not dead and solely impossible for destroying & picking apart his marriage & life!!!

    I know it has been awhile since Lisa Niles met her maker, but was the body they found truly identifiable as Lisa? Because I can’t think of anyone who has ever had a bigger vendetta against Robin than her.

    The show is on fire! It was “Mobs R Us” for so long I’m still stunned. With the return of Anna and resuming some of the back stories and history of the show has added not only a continuity to the story lines, but given the buffs a much needed break from all the violence. The writers floored me with Ewen being the Dr. I believe he is being forced somehow to do this…but my jaw dropped when I saw his face. Thank you for bringing Luke out of his hateful stupor. The additions of Todd and J. McBain are AWESOME and I wasn’t a OLTL watcher. Todd is awesome and JM is so alluring is sinful… he and same are simply steamy. Still have my wish list…miss Alan, Nikolas, Lucky. Can’t wait for K. Storms to return and PS love Spinelli.

    My guess it’s a combination of Cesar Faison, Helena Cassadine and Grant Putnam, but I see a connection with Allison Perkins and the late Mitch Laurence and the late Irene Manning.

    I was just reading about Anders Hove – seems he made his first US appearance in 15 years, at Monster Mania Con in March. He was on a show called SubSpecies. I believe Kassie DePaivia was there too for her role in Evil Dead.. … I suppose he went back to Denmark afterwards.

    I believe it’s Faison behind Robin’s kidnapping, he did it once before when she was a little girl.
    It just makes perfect sense to me.
    I wish however that it wasn’t Ewan Keenan in the mix – I like(d) him…..so I hope wherever they’re going with this story that ultimately he turns out to be a good guy.
    Maybe he’s a double agent ?

    Helena and Faison are working together with another partner that links in the OLTL deaths and they must have more than just Victor. Don’t think it is Mitch. Allison is just a pawn like Ewen. Ewen could be Faison’s son but he is most likely a pawn being used. He is still not a good guy. Faison wants Robin because of Anna and Max and Robert. It is a great storyline and bringing back days of old… love it!

    I heard a rumour that Stavros might be involved. I think it would be great if RKK came back as the once frozen head of the Cassadine family. His arc was fabulous and he was a very sexy and compelling evil doer. I would also love to see squeeky from uh I mean Allision Perkins come back and be involved somehow. That would give us a chance to see TSJ return as Victor. I think the most likely scenario is Helena and Jerry Jax. I can’t wait to see who our master villain is!

    Either way, I am loving GH right now and hope to have it around for many years to come. I miss Pine Valley and Llanview so much. I hope that someday we will get to see them back in some fashion.

  33. CTwildheart says:

    Faison is the first to come to mind…but Ewen is already ‘connected’ to the Cassadines, and Faison has worked with Helena before. Maybe another Cassadine…Valentin? Maybe Valentin and Irene Manning know each other and that is how the OLTL connection will fit.
    ALL I know for sure is that I am LOVING GH right now!! Great stories, good characters, fantastic interactions…WOO HOO!!!!

    For once i wish daytime would address mental illnesses on a more serious notes there are people whose lives have been ruined from misdiagnosis and quacks it would be nice that if GH would take this Robin story further and where she was refusing consent to the procedure is a good starting point. So Good for them for that one!

    oh GH has done serious crazy before, with Meg Bentley-Baldwin (Scotty’s mom) that was way back – like ’69-’71, and more “recently” with the Chamberlain twins, can’t remember which was which…. there was many scenes where Lucy Coe was trying to cox out whatever happened in the past that made him or them, crazy… and there was the whole Putnam ordeal…. just more fun to watch the kind of crazy like Heather is.

    Reply

    Christy replied

    I keep thinking of more crazy people on GH. there have been many! ha! Mary Bishop (that kept Nikolas), Meg Baldwin, Laura Spencer, Heather Webber, Grant Putnam, Ryan Chamberlain, James Franco (don’t tell Heather I put her and her nephew on the crazy list! ha!), most of the Cassadines!, Anthony Zacchara and Faison are even listed as insane villians,…. and many others could be placed in a teetering column like Lisa Niles, Helena Cassadine, even Tony Jones went off the deep end when he kidnapped Robin and a baby Michael.

  39. Trammell says:

    I would LOVE to see the Cassadines back on the canvas. Frankly, my biggest criticism of GH is how Guza and Phelps made it the “Corinthos” show. I prefer a Spencer/Cassadine orbit I suppose, probably because that’s when I started watching, like back when I was twelve. ;-) I must say though, Valentini has mad Sonny interesting again, barely. Never loved Faison, but after watching some old clips, it’s true. The creepy chemistry with Anna is undeniable. Bring back the WSB, and Tiffany!

    After now learning that, Jerry Jax is coming back. I think the people, behind this are. From Anna and Roberts past, with JERRY’s help. By using Ewen as a pawn, in a trade off of paying him, off to keep Robin alive. To lure Anna to rescue, her daughter. This will shock the whole town. If Jerry is involved there is Defentley, bloodshed involved. And a shooting involved. I think it will revealed as DUKE, OR FAISON. WITH JERRY JAX’s help. And Ewen will fall victim , for falling in love with Elizabeth. In the past Jerry has tendicy for everything that Ewen is not. A KILLER. AND A SLY FOR DISAPPEARING.
