HomeTVGeneral HospitalBREAKING NEWS: Emma Samms Returns to General Hospital For May Sweeps! Jamey Giddens March 11, 2009 General Hospital, General Hospital Spoilers 32 Comments Could a mother/son reunion be in the works at General Hospital? EW.com is reporting that Emma Samms is reprising the role of Holly Sutton just in time for May Sweeps. This will no doubt increase talk that Ethan is the son of Holly and either Luke (Anthony Geary) or Robert (Tristan Rogers). 32 Responses ladyofthelake March 11, 2009 Awesome. I have a theroy that when Holly was presumed dead, when she was married to Robert and her plane crashed, before she came back and was alive and well when Anna and Robert got married, 80’s throw back, or early 90’s. I got off track, but basically I think Ethan is Holly and RObert’s son. Holly and Robert were happpily married when Holly’s plane crashed and everyone thought she was dead, the timeline would fit. Didn’t that happen in the late 80’s, I think that’s the most logical way of writing Ethan as Holly and RObert’s kid. Not that I would wish that horriable Ethan on them, but oh well. Log in to Reply JasonMorganIsAHottie March 11, 2009 Well, this is interesting! Now the question is, is Teethan Holly and Robert’s or Holly and Luke’s son? Will they bring Tristan Rogers back for May sweeps too? I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out on the canvas. And just look at Emma, va va va voom….Emma and the girls still bring it! Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 March 11, 2009 Ah…suddenly the possible “bloodbath” at GH makes sense. While I’m thrilled at the idea of Holly and Helena coming back for a bit, it’s upsetting to think it means we *might* lose some of our other faves Log in to Reply ashlovesgh March 11, 2009 Daisy, love the pic I, as well, am very excited for Helena and Emma to return, but I can’t help but feel sad that it could be at a price. I would be completely crushed if any of the actors whose names were mentioned with the “bloodbath” were dropped. I just wish those rumors are false…I don’t think I could bare it if they turned out to be true. Log in to Reply OldGHFan March 11, 2009 Yea! I’m so excited Emma Samms (Holly Scorpio) is returning to GH. I hope Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) is not far behind. This can only mean Ethan is the son of Robert and Holly. Yea! Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 March 11, 2009 Thanks ashlovesgh! And yeah, that’s exactly how I feel too Log in to Reply ashlovesgh March 11, 2009 Lol daisy, great minds. I love the name as well- Samabeth McWebber…it fits perfectly haha. Log in to Reply disillusioned GH fan March 11, 2009 I’m stunned…. I hope the storyline compliments the talents of Emma Samms!! If we are about to enter an age of GH recognizing it’s star power potential (past/present), there may be some hope after all! First Constance Towers, now Emma Samms… interesting to say the least. ((Nevermind the fact that ALL the former Cassadines(Stephan, Stavros, Victor and Katherine Bell) are looking for work these days)) I tend to wonder if the TPTB are slowly moving Patrick and Robin to the front and center by rebuilding the Scorpio brand and adding some offspring, how great would that be? It could mean less mob, more hospital!! I should say that if I had the choice between dropping Ric Hearst and Maurice Bernard, I’d drop Maurice and keep Ric in this bloodbath. I also wonder if dropping Greg Vaughn to recurring allows TPTB more leverage in attracting Jonathan Jackson back as the -real- Lucky! …one can only hope!!! Log in to Reply dsrbroadway March 11, 2009 At least she has time to visit the Botox fairy before she begins shooting. Or sucking the blood of infants. Or whatever she’s doing to keep that body going at her age. Log in to Reply Revafan001 March 11, 2009 I love that she is back! But will it make a differnce if the writing is still crap!!? Log in to Reply JasonMorganIsAHottie March 11, 2009 Didn’t Holly get arrested at the end of the monkey virus/antidote selling storyline? I wonder how that will get ‘resolved’? Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin March 11, 2009 Oh boy…its bittersweet for me. I love Emma and Holly but I hate the idea of her having had a child with Robert. That place in his life is reserved for the love of his life, ANNA DEVANE. If they are bringing someone back, I would rather it be Robert and ANNA. Good gravy, if Steve B. leaves and the rumors are true, that this means Lizard will be written out for a Jiz happy ending on top of Holly and Robert procreating…..I think I may have to go swallow some toxic balls LOL. I just wonder if Jamey will be in agreement with me this time, since I demand that he say that Frons is only pimping Holly over Anna because of Emma’s breasts. LOL. Log in to Reply OldGHFan March 11, 2009 Oh, spare me EricaEvilTwin. Robert and Holly were the #1 couple on the #1 soap for almost 3 years long before anyone ever heard of Anna Devane. When Robert and Anna got remarried, GH fell to #7 in the ratings. As many times as Robert and Holly climbed the stairs of their infamous townhouse, they deserve a kid. Robert and Anna were together for 7 months MAX! Robert and Holly so deserve this kid because Holly is the love of Robert’s life. He said it on the air. “Holly, Holly, Holly. The love of my life!” Robert never once said that about Anna. And I hope Anna stays away this time. And you’re acting like a 12 year old when you make breast comments like that!

LOL. *** Both are too old for Frons to care about. He likes ‘em young and fresh from Playboy, er the farm. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 11, 2009 I prefer Anna over Holly, but then I have no connection with Holly since I didn’t start watching until the early 90’s. Holly seemed like a cartoonish vamp when she appeared for the Monkey Flu storyline, plus I didn’t like Emma Samms on Models, Inc. or Dynasty (Where she RUINED the once fabulous Fallon Carrington Colby), so I guess I will have to tune in to try to see what made her so popular. Log in to Reply txriotgrrl March 11, 2009 they can bring back all the vets they want, but if the writing doesn’t improve it doesn’t matter. nothing will get me watching GH again except for reports that the storytelling has improved. stunt casting ain’t gonna save this show. REAL stories will. Log in to Reply season1217 March 11, 2009 Didn’t Robert chose Anna over Holly? Log in to Reply OldGHFan March 11, 2009 When did Robert choose Anna over Holly? 1992? He went to go find the mother of his child because he “wouldn’t be a person” if he didn’t. Log in to Reply season1217 March 11, 2009 I don’t know when. That’s why I asked. LOL! Log in to Reply THEBEST March 11, 2009 I love Emma and the character of Holly is cool, but I never understood why these soaps bring back faves for sweeps to get ratings. Why not bring them back on recurring to secure any ratings boosts all year around? Log in to Reply OldGHFan March 11, 2009 Nope. Robert never chose Anna over Holly. He never had the chance. That’s why these Holly/Anna wars have been going on for 20+ years because it was never resolved. It would nice if GH would finally resolve the triangle. But for now, I’m just happy Emma Samms is returning and it’s looking like Ethan is Robert and Holly’s son. BTW, it looks like Tristan may be returning soon as well: http://twitter.com/tristanrogers Log in to Reply sueboo54321 March 11, 2009 This is my timeline – Robert and Holly were together and in love. Robin showed up and was followed by Anna. Something happened and Holly and Robert left town? Was Holly presumed dead? Robert left Frisco and Sean as Godfathers for Robin. Anna married Duke. Duke croaked. Robert came back and he and Anna got back together after she tied him to a pole. Anna disappeared with Faison and Holly came back. Faison tried to kidnap Robin in an elevator and Holly saved her. Robert went after Anna to rescue her but a ship blew up and Robin was told both of her parents were dead. Mac stepped up as uncle / father. Robin got infected with HIV. I have some holes in my timeline. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura March 11, 2009 Well there were RUMORS back when Ethan pulled that picture out that Robert and/or Holly COULD be returning. Log in to Reply OldGHFan March 11, 2009 Sueboo – your timeline is pretty accurate. Holly was presumed dead in a plane crash in 1987. Tristan came back to GH full-time but Emma was still on Dynasty so they needed to “kill” Holly. In reality, Holly was in a car crash that put Holly in a coma for 2 years (hence the coma baby Ethan!) In 1992, Finola left GH (Faison kidnapped Anna) and Emma came back to GH (Faison had it orchestrated to bring back Holly to distract Robert from finding Anna). Robert left to go get Anna. The boat exploded and both Robert and Anna were “dead” although they really weren’t. 2006 GH resurrects everyone but the storyline was awful. Hopefully, GH can rectify some of it’s mistakes this time – especially Holly. Out of all the 80’s vets that were butchered, Holly’s character was the worst. Here’s to seeing the REAL Holly Scorpio! Log in to Reply tim March 11, 2009 as a guy watcher for the last 15 yrs…Emma’s breasts are way out there…can’t wait to see her again on GH Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 March 11, 2009 And you’re acting like a 12 year old when you make breast comments like that! OldGHFan: You misunderstood EET’s comment. She wasn’t serious. It was a *joke* A few times Jamey has made comments about Sam/KeMo’s breasts/”Playboy” figure, claiming that’s why she’s preferred by Frons. Both EET and I have argued that that’s obviously not true. EET was poking fun at Jamey’s comments and our past arguments about it. Log in to Reply ahanshew March 11, 2009 When the 2006 storyline happened, Anna was alive. At that time, Robert was the only parent presumed dead. Robin was in contact with Anna when she was living in Paris. When did Robin find out her mother didn’t die in the explosion? Log in to Reply season1217 March 11, 2009 When did Robin find out her mother didn’t die in the explosion? I forget the exact year but it was no later than 2003. They reunited on AMC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pF_ZIBOLgD8 Log in to Reply OldGHFan March 11, 2009 Thanks for the clarification, Daisy. However, I still take issue with EricasEvilTwin’s comment, “hate the idea of her having had a child with Robert. That place in his life is reserved for the love of his life, ANNA DEVANE.” – Spare me! Some Robert and Anna fans have a very hard time accepting that Robert was wildly in love with Holly before anyone ever heard of Anna Devane. Log in to Reply soapoperafan March 12, 2009 I love Emma Samms and hope she gets some screen time with Finola Hughes! That would be great! Log in to Reply mellene March 14, 2009 I couldn’t be happier to see Emma Samms back on GH. I’d also love to see John Reilly and Sharon Wyatt back on, too. Log in to Reply MandaPanda1331 March 11, 2009 Now the question is, is Teethan Holly and Robert’s or Holly and Luke’s son? Haha that is hilarious…. I should have thought of it before!! I’m not sure how I feel about the character. I thought he was trying too hard to sound Australian but then I found out the actor really is from Australia so I guess I’m way off on him. Anything to get Robert back and the Scorpios in the front makes me happy! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
