Perkie's Observations: Robert Scorpio is Back on General Hospital!



Anna calls Duke with an update then checks in on Robert, who’s awake from his coma.  Robert wonders how long he’s been out. Anna tells him that it’s been almost a year.  She’s angry with Dr. Olbrecht and realizes Robert doesn’t remember who poisoned him. 

Robin wants to know why Dr. Olbrecht has Patrick’s son and accuses her of kidnapping the baby.  Dr. O is annoyed that she wasn’t able to get rid of Robin, since Jerry wanted her to find the cure.   Robin brings up her father. However, Liesl warns that he won’t remember anything even if he wakes up from his coma. 

Alexis meets with Duke to ask about Julian Jerome.  Duke shows her a photo of a young Julian, but Alexis doesn’t remember what he looked like.  She wants a way to find out if Julian was Sam’s father. Duke tells her about Lucas, being Julian’s biological son.  Duke tells her to have Lucas agree to a DNA test.

Sabrina and Patrick discuss Ben’s kidnapping when Sabrina gets another bunch of flowers. She decides she needs to deal with Carlos and heads off.  Sam stops by to thank Patrick for everything he’s done for Danny and wants to give him something.  Patrick wants her to get rid of Carlos. 

Jerry brings food to an ailing Luke, who wonders why Jerry hasn’t killed him yet.  Jerry tells him that he’s going to use Luke as a guinea pig once his doctor perfects the cure. 

Julian complains to Carlos that Alexis is digging into Julian’s past and worries that it will mess with his plans.  Sabrina arrives, angry with Carlos and tells him to back off.  Carlos tells her that he loves her more than Patrick does and mentions the ring.  Sabrina tells him that Patrick took off the ring because he’s ready for a future with her. 

Dr. Olbrecht explains how Sabrina wormed her way into Patrick's heart by using Robin’s memory.  Robin objects, saying she told Patrick to move on.  Liesl says Sabrina has taken over Robin’s life, leaving nothing for her to go home to but Robin accuses her of stealing her life. 

Patrick explains to Sam about Carlos and that it bothers him  Sam asks why Patrick took off his ring and he says it wasn’t fair to Sabrina.  Sam points out that Robin wouldn’t want him to sit back and that he should let go.   Patrick admits that it’s hard to move on.  Sam tells him about her date with Silas and admits she’ll never stop loving Jason.  She thinks they should both be happy. 

Robin pretends to show Dr. Olbrecht something on the microscope but then knocks her out, determined to get back home to Emma and Patrick.

Anna explains to Robert about Dr. Olbrecht and how they were at the clinic to find Duke.  Robert remembers everything until he ran off after Dr. O.  Mac tells him that he’s back with Felicia and Robert is happy to hear it.  Robert continues to try and remember but Anna tells him to rest.  Finally Robert remembers and tells Anna that Dr. Olbrecht was with Robin.

Ah Robert Scorpio, how I love thee!!

Loved the Anna/Robert/MAc scenes.

Robin, good of you to find your inner Scorpio and get the drop on DR. O. Although I did laugh because that looked like a tiny little bottle that somehow managed to knock her out cold.

Love Alexis getting info from Duke and him leading her to Lucas.

Love Sam and Patrick together. The show missed the boat with these two.

Carlos and Sabrina: I don't care.

Perkie, I totally agree with your whole post. The only thing I would add is besides Sam, Liz always had great chemistry with Patrick. They didn't go there with them either, and I was ok with that. Which ever woman Patrick moved on to, was going to get dumped on. I didn't want that to be Liz.

I say this for two reasons...

The Scrub fan base is a mighty strong, loyal and vocal one....They would have hated any new woman in his life. I loved Scrubs so that makes me kind of one myself, but I keep in mind that KMc left because she wanted to, and I want JT to stay. So I would have been ok with a new woman for Patrick...just not Sabrina.

The second reason and main one is that Robin IS still alive. No way Patrick would stay with any woman once this information came to light. So whomever it was, would have been dropped. Liz has had enough bad luck in this department, and I would hate for Sam to have gone through this after losing Jason. Better it was someone no one liked or cared about.

IMO, Robin should have never been shown alive until after Patrick had moved on with Dr. Sarah Webber and not Sabrina! When Lucky was shown alive in 1999, we watched Liz grieve his death and finally come to terms with her first love being dead. Liz and Jason became friends and something more, before SBu left the show.

By the way, where is Liz?

Robin. Ugh. I hate when a character gets the drop on a bad guy and then run their mouths off until the person wakes up! Run! Grab baby Ben "the rat" and take off before Dr. O wakes up or Jerry comes back to the lab.

Lawd. Spixie and Britta's babies are huge!

I don't agree with that whoever Patrick would have been paired with would have gotten dumped on. The reason this Sabrina chick and Patrick didn't work is because she came on acting like a tween who never combed her hair and wore clothes even Punky Brewster would have said "Chile please!" Patrick was an adult and they should have paired him with an adult. They turned Patrick into this Prince Charming to fit their Disney Princess. It didn't work because that's not Patrick. Robin/Patrick was so good because of all their flaws. Also Sabrina/Patrick have NO chemistry.

I so agree that it should have been Sarah Webber! Liz would have a sibling who she doesn't really get along with and Sarah is part of a legacy family. She has history and she's a doctor.

I don't care about Sabrina and Carlos. Sabrina's "accent" is horrible and Carlos old behind looks like a child molester stalking Sabrina. His midwest accent is also distracting.

LOVE LOVE LOVE everything Robert. "Hey Sweetheart" then the way Anna just smiles at him, swooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!!

It was funny seeing Robin hit Dr. O with that glass sippy cup. I love that.

I LOVE that Duke is helping Alexis with the Julian Jerome thing. I LOVE that Duke told her about doing a DNA test on Lucas. What I didn't like is that Alexis seemed surprised hearing about Lucas like she didn't really know who is was. These writers must didn't research the character of Alexis. Alexis knows all about Lucas. She knows he was adopted. Her being shocked that Julian is his birth father is cool but she knows Lucas very well. Didn't like that. When Tony was going crazy and working with Helena, Alexis was right there. First they have Alexis telling all her business to a stranger. Telling the stranger that Kristina's father is Sonny a mob boss. This is the same Alexis who hid her real identity cause she didn't want anyone to know Sonny was her father to protect her. I also don't buy ALexis basically telling everyone she was a ho and got pregnant in the back of a car. Alexis will NEVER tell her business like that.

I just started back to watching GH last week and I couldn't had picked a better week to start back since it was Scorpios week and watchable, first Robin now Robert..Can't get any better than that. Oh, how I missed the Robert Scorpio!! I hated him being put in a lame coma and left there by his friends. Robert was too awesome for that..Please tell me that he's here to stay for a good while? His presence just make the show #MustseeTV for me. .

What is going on with GH lately? The show has been so good and I am amazed how fast stories are moving suddenly (The reveal that Maxie and Spinelli are really Lante's baby's parents, and now Robin, and Scorpio remembering she is alive). Loved Friday's episode. Reminded me of the old days of soaps in the 80's with the cliff-hanger Friday's. Watching Soapnet, with GH episodes from 2009 and 2010, the show was just terrible. Everything revolved around Sonny and Jason and that stupid Lisa's fatal attraction after Patrick. The show may not be perfect but it is SOOO much better then it was.
Loved seeing Scorpio and the Mac/Anna scenes. Finola Hughes is my favorite actress on the show. When she gets those tears in her eyes, they are so real that I tear up. She is such a beautiful, classy lady! Even though Tristian Rogers is a lot older looking, still find him sexy.
Wonder if they are testing the Sam/ Patrick chemistry. Not sure how long Robin will be on the show and somehow I have a feeling if they are reunited, there will be problems. It's too obvious to have Sam with Silas (and he also has something bad in his background), so I could see a Patrick/Sam /Silas triangle eventually.
Really liking GH lately! Ava, the sexy cougar, Derek, the smooth criminal, and I even like Carlos, the sexy Latin. My only complaint is that Cartini tends to leave stories hanging for weeks, like who killed Connie, where is AJ, and when will we see Lucy, Laura and Scotty again, and Milo, with that Deception spa they were suppose to open??? Other then that, enjoying the show. Think Cartini listens to the fans. Have been hearing fans talking about Lucas Jones, and now Duke brought up his name on Friday's show. If Lucas returns, so may Bobbie, and perhaps a love interest for Felix?

Robert! It's really Robert! I don't watch the show much these days, not since the Nurse's Ball buzz wore off, so it was just a fluke that I was flipping thru channels! Serendipity, baby, lol. I watched the whole ep. Ok, I only paid attention during the Scorpio and Jerry Jax scenes but still. That's more than I've sat thru for months!

Now...get him out of the bed and into action! Don't use the amazing Tristan Rogers and his iconic character as a plot device.

And Robin bashed Obrecht over the head, finally stopping that endless stream of cartoonish drivel they had the woman spewing. The thing about OTT characters is that they need to be used *sparingly* or the much needed shot of campy adrenalin they infuse the scene with quickly becomes an overdose. If I want to see Natasha Fatale, I'll watch "Bullwinkle and Rocky".

I enjoyed the Jerry and Luke scenes, although TG's heavy-handed delivery was pretty blatant when put up against his scene partner's smooth and witty approach. And, while I won't spoil, the scenes for next week showing who is coming to Luke's rescue indicates that this storyline is about to jump the nearest shark. Perhaps this absurd choice will reach Cassadine Island by borrowing Jason's jet-ski from the Black and White Ball murder plot, lol!

Lynn H. mentioned on her Facebook page that the Deception spa and all new sets were dumped due to budgetary reasons which probably explains why there is no Liz, AJ, Lucy, Kevin, etc.,,in the last few weeks.

The Robert scenes were great! Loved how he reacted to Mac marrying Felicia! Now with this info about Robin, she can't just dismiss it. Not when she, Robert, Duke, Faison have all come back from the dead. Same way she can't dismiss the Julian Jerome talk.

Scorpio is back! Sad that we didn't see Holly. Anyway his scenes were amazing! I'm happy he's back just in time for Robin's return.

I like that we got the link that Julian is Lucas' father and that this isn't being ignored. Guess we'll see him soon!?

I enjoyed Jerry's scenes with Luke. Jerry is a villain I could take any day. He's so unapologetic about all what he's done, has that sense of humor to lighten up a scene but also this psychotic side that Sebastian Roche portrays so damn good. I love that he comes back every time there is an opportunity. Roche - for me - is for the longest time a face of primetime television. Good that he still visits "GH" whenever he can.

I like so much about "GH" these days but the Sabrina/Carols story is one big fail. I still don't believe one word about their past together and find them absolutely irritating with what else is going on. And can someone please steal an R from Teresa Castillo. Just say Carlos girl. Doesn't have to be Ca-RRR-los.

Yay! Robert, Mac, and Anna! Glad he remembered Robin at the end, I hope Anna believes him! I love Jerry, as I love SR and his accent, but I'd rather have him dealing with Jax, Alexis, Robin, Sam... anyone but boring old Luke.

I've said lots of times Patrick could've been with Liz or Sam and it would've worked til Robin got back, and then it would've been a helluva a story! I honestly wouldn't know who to root for if they would've gone with either of those girls, the way they went I'll only root for Robin. The question is, since she's not back forever, will Patrick leave when Robin leaves again?

I would love to see the actor who plays Carlos clean shaven. I think the color of his shirt in this episode was very complimentary to him. I don't mind how Sabrina pronounces his name. I dated a man who was originally from Honduras for a while, and his name had a H(silent) and a R (exaggerated) in it, and he would get irate if I didn't pronounce his name exactly right.

I would've rather seen a Deception set rather than a set for Ava's new apartment.

Hopefully we'll see Lucas. Lucas would be so much better for Felix than Brad, and it would be nice to see Sam interacting with her half brother. I hope we see more Duke/Alexis also, I don't want them romantically involved, but it would be nice to see them working together more!

Well J Bernard we are all entitled to like or not like a character....and of course you will always find people who like something or someone the majority does not. In other words I believe you are in the minority, in this case.... AND I am not saying there is anything wrong in this...It is just my understanding that Sabrina has had a lot more negative feedback than positive. You would have to agree that Sam and Liz both have their detractors, but they each have much bigger fan bases that support these characters...That is all I was saying. I am glad it wasn't either one of these two ladies that were used as the sacrificial lamb...as I happen to like both characters.

SO HAPPY TO SEE ROBERT!! Duke who?? bring on robert and anna scorpio.

I have to say i totally did not want to see sam with patrick after jason died because i know the scrubs fans would have been all over the character and the actress and honestly as a sam ff I felt that really could do without another one of those set ups. Now now having really witnessed scenes between the two I have to agree that gh missed the boat (we have had some interactions but the only really positive one where jason wasnt a part of the equation was the day he lost emmas toy and ended up having coffee with sam.)

I would have been interested to see patrick and liz but a lot of my interest in that is what would robin do if she realized that she was the instrument for those two getting together setting up more heartbreak for someone she really loved. Robin has always been fairly self sacrificing and liz is someone she might feel some obligation too in that sort of scenario. But when i really think about it, my interest in Piz was way more about robin and liz than it was about patrick and liz. piz does have some chemistry but not compared to scrubs.

Now having watched patrick and sam, i think there would have been something interesting there. those two have SERIOUS chemistry and she represents an interesting choice - she matches robin in terms of determination but the rest of her attitude is much more fun loving than it is cerebral. Robin worries and contemplates, sam is more of a doer and makes choices based on instinct. sam is more sexual and a big risk taker and i see the sexual stuff being appealing but the risk taking being a big issue. I think to even the playing field they would have had to really have shown sam bonding with emma (and emma maybe growing close to molly) and patrick really being a part of the danny situation so that it would feel to him like he was losing a son in going back to robin. And the way you salvage it all is to have SAM make the noble choice so that she isnt necessarily the sacrificial lamb.

Too i think jason will eventually come back and if that happens maybe they bring back kim again heavily as part of that story - i think thats how we will see heronce scrubs unites - only here and there. I would be very interested to see what jason would do if sam rebounded with silas at that point, liz was involved with aj and carly was with franco (i really really REALLY hate that pairing but i dont think im going to get a choice on that front). Might nujason turn to robin as the one person who might understand what coming back after all that time might be like? And if sam ditched silas feeling compelled to choose jason and it didnt work, might she find herself wondering if she shouldnt have given up patrick so easily. Teasing patrick/sam and jason/robin might make people rethink which pairing they preferred if kim shared chem with the recast.

Dont get me wrong - I am finally really enjoying siam but for awhile it really wasnt making any sense post the pp3 shuffle. Kelly has chemistry with everyone. I just hate that JT was wasted for the better part of the last year. Im completely with 777 here. I loathe sabrina. I kept thinking if she was put in a younger story i might warm up but honestly i not only hate sabrina i seem to hate everyone when they share scenes. Love felix/carly, but put him in scenes with sabrina and i find him grating. Love patrick, hate him with sabrina. Beyond in love with emma but watching her interact with sabrina and she comes across as suddenly kind of bratty. Even warming up to liz with jason gone and then she is giggling with sabrina and im back to having my hate on. I even hate her interactions with carlos (who really i should be rooting for if for no other reason than getting her out of patricks orbit.) I think they really need to stop trying to force this character on us. if you cant get fans without having basically every character singing your praises then its time to call it quits (I cringed when anna kept saying that patrick couldnt risk losing) sabbbbrrrrina)/ JBJ i respect your opinion and i know that the character does have some fans but I think the hatred is way more widespread. I would say too I like robin, but i am not a robin ff. usually when a character faces that kind of backlash it comes from the fans of an alternative pairing or because the character does something absolutely horrible ie: Liz fans hated sam, sam fans hated liz you take away jason and they hate drops dramatically. I could see robin ffs hating sabrina. But when it spreads to viewers that dont have the proverbial dog in that fight i think that is really telling.

on a separate note, im loving the connie aka georgie story but i totally miss jmb. ER is decent but i just dont feel the layers that i did with jmb. JMBs lulu would be furious with maxie but she would have also shown through her delivery that a big part of her anger was that she loved maxie so much making the betrayal so much deeper. with ER all I am getting is how could i have been so stupid as to have trusted you. I think the former sentiment is way deeper and way more interesting to me as a viewer than the latter. I dont think er really gets the complexity of the maxie/lulu relationship. betrayal from a friend doesnt compare to betrayal from a sister. In fact, i think the good comparison was lulus scenes with liz after the niz relationship came out. she wasnt just angry she also showed us that liz wasnt just anyone to her and thats why it cut so deep - her sister had just driven a knife through the heart of their family. She showed us that it was more than just what we would have seen if say the woman in the middle was siobhan because she wouldnt have expected anything of or felt betrayed herself by siobhan. I dont know if the right actress for this part exists so i cant say they should recast but should julie ever decide she wanted to return, they would be fools not to move heaven and earth to rehire her.

These are the reasons Patrick should have been paired with Liz not some 12 yr old babysitter! Robin and Liz both have huge fanbases so it would be hard to root for one over the other. Robin wanted Patrick with Liz if something happened to her so when Robin comes back, she can't get mad because she wanted Patrick to move on with Liz. So this would create a great dynamic in the Robin/Liz friendship. This could have been a great story but SUCKBRINA ruined it since Ron had to have his minion take over GH

How can a Hispanic actress have a terrible accent? Regardless, I like Sabrina too, but to each their own. Solid episode all around.

Logan honestly i would have preferred carly liz sam or even maxie over sabrina. im not sure what the drama is with sabrina. she isnt robins enemy, she isnt robins friend, and she isnt robins family. none of the characters will be torn so there really isnt any drama there either. Hell sabrina isnt even that much different than robin in many ways - a poor mans version of robin no doubt, but in many ways not all that different. Even the relationship with emma is short lived vs. say someone like liz or maxie who she knew from birth. I could see emma being conflicted if choosing mom also meant giving up living with joss or living with jake and aidan after the families blended. With sabrina, the minute mom returns, she isnt going to give one thought to sabrina as anything more than that woman that use to babysit. The only question patrina raises in all this is how guilty patrick feels when he tosses her over and whether he feels that he should burn the bed after sabrina leaves. (I wouldnt want to go home and sleep in the bed my husband slept with sabrina in during my absence lol).

Are you serious? Sounds kind of racist. Not every Hispanic will have an accent especially if they don't speak the language. You can tell the actress doesn't speak Spanish by the way she rolls her r's. My brother in law is Puerto Rican, his mother was born in Puerto Rico and she speaks Spanish but she raised her kids to only speak English. Therefore, my brother in law doesn't have a Spanish accent when he talks. I roll my r's better than him since I took Spanish for 7 years. So not every Hispanic will have an accent. As someone who took Spanish for 7 yrs and works part time at a clinic primary for Spanish patients, I can tell.

I agree EET--there's no drama with Sabrina. Though I'm not sure there really would have been drama with anyone else. As much as we fans like Sam (you) or Liz (me) I cannot imagine rooting against Patrick and Robin.

As a long-time Scorpio fan I so want to see Robert and Anna (and Mac)descend on Cassadine Island and rescue Robin. Will Tracy find her first (assuming that is Tracy come to rescue Luke)? Isn't there Cassadine staff who would warn Nik there's a lot of activity on the Island?

The ratings are skyrocketing. ABC should stop cutting the budget and give us Deception. I want Laura & Scotty back together.

I don't want to carp because I am mostly loving the show these days. But Carlos looks way too old to be with Sabrina. And why are they on my screen so much? I want Liz. Not Sabrina. Not Carlos. Liz. (Wouldn't mind some AJ either).

Britt cannot think Nik is not going to explode when he finds out she's been lying. About her baby daddy & about her own daddy.

WOW! These episodes keep getting better and better! Cartini, you've found the GH rhythm, yer not missing a beat! It's nice to watch the show and actually see the writers invested in legacy characters and their history. When Guza and Phelps were dismantling this show, they were very disrespectful to it, the characters and the shows history... it's nice to see it appreciated again!

ps: I like Sabrina as well, I'll be sad for her when Robin returns, although Robin trumps here by leaps and bounds. That Carlos is no conciliatory prize.

GH is killing it!! I have been loving so much on my screen with the exception of Kiki/Mikey and Sabrina... At this point for me Kiki and Sabrina are done. I don't think I can watch them in any story. However it doesn't sour the show for me to much. At any given time there has always been one or two stories I didn't like. I suffered them to get to the awesome ones..

Can't wait for Robert to convince Anna.. Can't wait for them to find her. Her getting her family back.

Loving Sam/Silas/Julian/Alexis... Can't wait for the Daddy story to come out..

Needing Maxie to get Georgie back!!!

Thank you EET! This analysis expands on my brief comment last week about how I felt Julie's Lulu's pain and heartbreak beneath her anger. You have added the element of "motivation" - the hurt and loss that happens when someone you love does huge damage to you and your loved ones. I just don't feel those layers with ER's Lulu. Nor do I feel she has any connection to Lulu's past. I continue to feel as if I'm watching a completely new character.

Now back to regularly scheduled programming and Friday's episode:

Loved, loved, loved seeing Robert Scorpio - and with Anna and Mac - a huge bonus. Enjoy all three characters and actors!

I enjoyed Jerry and Luke as well and have always found Jerry to be an enjoyable villain.

I liked seeing Robin being a Scorpio. I enjoyed the Duke/Alexis scenes and hope to see more of them working together. And I do hope the Lucas mentions means he might actually return.

And Sam and Patrick - a missed opportunity indeed. I would love to have seen EET's scenario play out with them, Robin and Jason.

As for Sabrina, I still have no words.

I finished mourning the death of Connie. I loved Friday's episode. I am one of many who happens to like Sabrina. I have said this repeatedly that I think Sabrina needs more development. I would like it if Sabrina were Sonny's sister.

I wonder if the scenes between Duke and Alexis will open the door for Lucas' return?

And...the shark is jumped. lol. No, they didn't jump it, they did a spectacular and acrobatic *leap* over the poor critter. Not only did atotally ridiculous person show up to rescue Luke, this person walked right past Jerry, our favorite criminal genius, and he didn't notice, lol!

Why didn't they just hold this story til Genie got back? Oh, I remember...they never wait til Genie gets back, g.

I am LOVING the show right now! SO happy Robert remembered seeing Robin, now he and Anna can go get her.
I personally am a fan of Sabrina and have no problem with her and Patrick being together. I am hoping they will develop her character more as well - can we see her cousin Juan back in town? I also don't understand the hate toward the character OR the actor. Teresa Castillo does not deserve the bashing some of you are giving her.

Why is it when we hate a fictional character, someone comes along and wants to say we're bashing the actor/actress smh

I could care less about Teresa Castillo. I don't like Sabrina. It's not her fault the writers brought her on one way and then tried to switch up the character now bringing on some old man as her ex. Her character is all over the place and instead of developing the character into an actually viable character, they just have everyone and random patients propping her. Let us root for her based on her personality. But since she has no personality, it's hard to root for her.
