    RRRRRRRobin! Love it! It is all about her love for Stone and AIDS itself. Why not? I cannot wait to see the scenes where Robin meets Griff AND I bet Griff and Emma will perform together at the Ball. Welcome back Kim!

    Yes, my Timmmy. It would be out of this world if Robin and Griffin were twins separated at birth. Picture this: they see each other from across the room; their eyes lock; speaking without words; something otherworldly, bigger than they …..a force pulls them together. Then, they remember their time in-utero together. LOL.

    In – our – ideally perfect soapie land… this would be one of the biggies

    danged it tho… fans were so pulling… for Griffin to be Anna’ biological

    LOL… your post just brings tears

    all for Anna…

    I was watching Tuesday ep last night… when Griffin and Emma .. looked like they were play acting in Anna living room… it just looked SO RIGHT

    Anna and her two pups… so… i’m happy with that…

    BUT… Grifin is still THAT mystery

    i’m gonna hope with you… that the GH writers… just bring it HOME… and since Griffin is still a newbie… and from the get go is certifiably a rousing keeper…

    I’ll watch GH again just to see Kimberly McCullough/Robin (the only Robin ) back on GH with her daughter Emma. It will be GH again with them and other Vets. The characters like Ava, Hayden, Sabrina, and Nina (nor do the actors who play them) belong on GH. In fact, it doesn’t look like my GH anymore with these Chara a

    Glad to see Robin. Perhaps she can talk Sonny out of using Corleonish stunts/warnings to scare Ava from taking her baby back.

    heeeyyy CeeCee :)
    I do not Robin, never have never will..
    I can not give a ”WHOOPIE!

    Sonny should never be made into a monk, he is the badazz Sonny Corinthos!!
    I want to see the man do his Sonny stuff and burry this saint routine that does not fit him.. LOL :)

    ummm I’m going to invite the Sonny character to your house for dinner !! ahaa!

    CeeCee replied

    Lol, SuzieQ.
    I am not very familiar with Robin, but I like her….I watched past episodes, as she aged on GH. So sweet.
    Sonny will have a long way to go to get to my house, su.
    So, you want Sonny to get his mojo back, is that it? Hmmmmm. I’m not into the mob or killing. You know that, right? However, “cosa nostra” doesn’t seem to be moving from GH.
    Futhermore, Julian is still soooo deep into the muck, the ‘malavita’ is here to stay.
    Do you think Sonny or Anna will kill Carlos? We shall see.

    Absolutely excited! The NB would not be the same without Lucy and Kimberly (Robin) has always been the heart of the NB and it is a shame that it took this long to bring her back.

    Notice you skipped the ball on the inappropriate comments page. Now all happy and kind til the next racist homophobic rant or abusing some other poster on here with your demands to explain themselves. Twisted.

    I am very happy about the Nurses Ball!

    I am so happy to hear of these two actresses returning for the Nurses’ Ball. It is this kind of “guest star” that I want to see; not some “celebrity” with no link to the GH canvas. Returning GH stars will attract me more than anything else, so for that, I say Thank You to TPTB for pulling this off.

    I was never a BIG fan of Robin, though I didn’t dislike her either. But when she had that deeply moving scene last year with Jason on the bridge, I began to appreciate her more. Of all the women in Jason’s “new” life, she was the only one other than Carly that immediately touched me. That was a beautifully underplayed scene by Kimberly & Billy, proving again that less can really be more. So I will enjoy her return to the ball. And it’s worth having Lucy at the ball just for the costume changes. That is one gal who REALLY knows how to wear clothes!

    That was it, those scenes on the bridge were great. In those few short moments it seemed as though Kim and Billy bonded better than Sam or Liz? Not as a pair but as friends and actors.

    Good news indeed that Robin will be back for the NB in a normal capacity for the first time in an age….however, since we already know that her spouse, Patrick, shall be otherwise engaged in Genoa City, would it be too much to hope that perhaps her father-in-law, Dr. Noah Drake, could accompany her instead? What a welcome sight Rick Springfield would be! Having said that, I’m none too pleased that we are in for the umpteenth installment of “I Loathe Lucy” to endure. Whilst I adore tradition, there is also something to be said for providing a fresh spin on certain aspects of the now-annual GH event, and I truly hoped that Dr. O. would bring Kathleen Gati’s immense talents to the role of hostess this year….especially since her repertoire consists of far more substantial performance skills than just hyperkinetic hijinks and stripping down to her underwear after parading around in numerous examples of evening wear like a perpetual beauty pageant contestant.

    Sweet Shay, you hit it out of the park AGAIN! Rick subbing for Jason! That would be cool and Rick is always promoting his music! Its a win win. I have to say, Jason is doing well as Billy Abbott BUT not as well as I thought. I would rather see them shelve the character after this whole PASSKEY story is over! Billy Miller could return in a year and blow the place up!

    ANOTHER point we agree on, NO Lucy! She isnt on the show currently and I dont need another wardrobe malfunction. Mudder and Finn could have Lucy CO-hosted together!

    @Timmm….I agree it would be so great to see Rick back at the NB, be it as Noah Drake, Eli Love….or himself!!! Any of the three—or combination thereof—would be fine by me! As for my disappointment about the hosting arrangements, yes, I was truly hoping for a more original choice this time around….I simply don’t get the desire for the same old, same old act in that respect when there are other capable options already present on the GH canvas. Lastly, I did reply to your thoughtful post on the previous thread, although not directly to your inbox due to lack of a link. Hope you saw it.

    CeeCee replied

    Agreed, guys. I like Lucy Coe, but, I find her a little too neurotic….she gets so excited when speaking, I feel I can’t catch my own breath.
    Jason Thompson is a big disappointment for me as Billy A; as much as Billy M is as Jason. He needs to go back to being Jake. That demon-like stare into nothingness, as he was chocking the life out of Nikolas, made him look like a psychopath.
    Nah; me no like.

    Glad to see Lucy’s back to oversee the Nurses Ball. It’s her baby, it just seems right. She’s helped put Humpty Dumpty together on many occasions in her own inimitable style, along with the inspiration and help of Sabrina, Felix, Laura, and almost Tracy in other years. Even some of Lucy’s predictable mis-calculations lend a kinda of charm for me. Except last year. But we’ve been promised way better this year.

    I do love Kimberly’s Robin, but I admit that I get somewhat annoyed with how she just pops in and out. I prefer stories that I can get invested in. With that said, Robin is such an important part of the Nurse’s Ball and it makes sense she would return. :)

    You know what? I’m ready to let go of Robin. Especially now that there’s no hope she’ll ever return with Patrick. I’m happy they got their happy ending and I’m just as happy to hear about their lives off camera. Anna can reference visiting them from time to time; and Emma can come back for breaks and summers until they rapid age her into being a doctor at GH.
