Perkie’s Observations: Will The Real Anna Devane Please Come Forward on General Hospital?





Anna pays Faison a visit, where she asks about Robin. Faison tells her Robin is alive.

Mac questions where Anna has taken off to and reminds Robert it’s Robin’s birthday. Robert wants to tell Mac the truth, but remembers Anna telling him not to give anyone false hope.

Robert is upset he missed all the important dates in Robin’s life and couldn’t make it to her funeral. He wishes he could have been stronger for everyone. Mac assures him the family understood. 

Robin wonders where Dr. Obrecht has gone and why she didn’t take Ben with her. Jerry wants Robin to concentrate on finding the cure. He gives Robin a muffin with a candle for her birthday in hopes of giving her incentive. He reminds Robin if he dies on the island, so does she. 

Liz meets with Patrick and Emma, who’s making a birthday card for Robin. She's is surprised to hear Patrick has taken off his ring.

Patrick admits it wasn’t fair to Sabrina. He loves her and wants a future with her. 

Patrick tells Liz how strange it felt to remove the ring. He thought it would help to let Robin go, but instead he feels a stronger connection.  Patrick continues to find it hard to believe Robin is really gone. 

Duke informs Olivia that Anna is visiting an awake Robert.  He’s worried Robert may want Anna back. Olivia reassures him Anna loves him. Then she remembers how dreamy Robert was. Olivia explains how she had a vision of Faison and worked with Robert in helping to get Duke back. 

Duke remembers it’s Robin’s birthday and feels he should treasure the memories he has of her.  Olivia has a vision of Faison and Anna kissing. 

Patrick remembers Robin’s last birthday, upset that he thought they had lots of time.  Liz tells him to remember all the good times and not to regret that Robin loved him. Liz tells him it’s time to let Robin go. 

Robin is determined to finish the cure so she can go home today. Later on, she calls Jerry in and tells him that she’s found the cure.   

Mac shows Robert a recording of Robin’s funeral, then admits he didn’t realize how hard it would be to see the love for Robin.  Robert says they should think of Robin as she was and not the funeral.  He looks to the heavens and wishes Robin a happy birthday. 

Anna is shocked to hear Faison tell her he kept Robin alive for her. He says he was working with Jerry, Ewen and Dr. Obrecht.  He explains Dr. Obrecht is in love with him, but swears to “Anna” he never returned the feelings. Faison says he only has love for Anna and kisses her. 

Faison is thrilled Anna kissed him back and wonders if it’s possible she loves him. The real Anna arrives for her meeting with Faison.  Dr. Obrecht angrily removes her mask to show she is not Anna.

    Cartoony has really reached a creative low. It was funny and over the top to play the fake mask with Faison a year ago, but to bring it back as a device now is stupid. So Olbrecht had the time to create an Anna mask while she has been on the run for months and perfect her voice??! Was she wearing a body mask as well??? How did Olbrecht hide her extra 100 pounds that she has on Anna? She should sell that technology to Spank and make zillions.

    Queen Elizabeth looks so good. Love hearing (no longer a brat since she’s not around Suckbrina) Emma calling Liz Auntie Liz. Love seeing Patrick and Liz talk and how she kissed him bye and told him she loved him.

    Then the scenes when Patrick and Robin where shown together and how they both had muffins…..

    The Robert/Mac stuff. Mac’s tears.

    Olivia/Duke. Hearing Olivia call Robert Robbie. Get Olivia/Robert together STAT! But I am sick of her visions.

    Thank you Ron, period point blank!

    Awesome episode. Teared up many times.
    Loved that Elizabeth was FINALLY back in Patrick & Emma’s orbit. Loved the flashbacks and the integration of Robin, Emma and Patrick.

    Thought there was something off about Anna, but chalked it up to nerves. LOVED that it was Dr. O. Don’t care that it was a repeat. It was unexpected and fun.

    Almost a perfect episode. Too much Olivia. At least she didn’t shriek during her vision.

    I FF through everything accept for Anna, Faison, Duke and Olivia. It was an amazing episode. I knew something was up with Anna. It was no shock once the mask came off. Dr. O will shoot Faison and Anna will have to wait to find out about Robin. I am also anticipating the reveal of Britt’s father to Anna. Today I believe will be the day Patrick gets the call from RObin. So far I must admit that they have me more hooked on Anna, Robert, Faison, Jerry than anyone else. I love Robin but KM is not the prettiest thing. I mean Robin is no Sabrina, no Britt, no Lisa Niles, I mean really Robin was never really a gorgeous character. She has always been cute. KM needs to lose about 15 lbs and get a make over. I am being honest, Kimberly needs a make over. She has been very busy working behind the scenes but she needs to do something about her looks!

    Great episode; I was surprised it was Dr. O and then disappointed that it wasn’t Anna; I thought she was faking a kiss with him to get more info on Robin.

    Everytime I see Emma I want to put the brat in time out; I know it’s late but why didn’t Patrick put Emma in her place for calling Britt the britch; basically she just called Britt a bitch and Patrick did nothing; then the bomb drops, her baby was kidnapped. Suck it Emma. Sabrina and Emma are ruined for me for the foreseeable future.

    Glad Liz is back, not sure what the big deal of giving Olivia a vision of Anna and Faison kissing; when it doesn’t really help anyone to know since it was Dr. O.

    I really hope they are not going to try and put Olivia and Robert together. He’s just too old; I know she and Sonny have no chemistry but I’m sure there’s someone on the canvas she can work with.

    Patrick and Liz’s talk was nice. It was nice to see them interacting again. Emma’s hair (I forget the name of the little actress who plays her) is getting so long!

    I had read spoilers on another site, so I knew about the mask scene happening, and knowing that while I was watching, it was odd to me to see “Anna” cry when Faison mentioned Robin being alive. Dr O doesn’t look capable of real tears. If I hadn’t have read the spoilers, the scene would have surprised me I think. The scarf around her neck was a huge giveaway though.

    I hope they keep SR as Jerry around for a while. I’d love to see him pop up in Port Charles again!

    Great stuff. When that tear came out of Anna’s eye it was such great acting. Dr O is one wacky person. She might kill Faison. Anna better get in there fast.

    That was definitely a great episode. I love how Dr. O totally gives me 60’s Mission Impossible flashback. I can see her as a villain in one their made up eastern bloc countries that had to tussle with Cinnamon Carter.

    Faison was terrifying. I haven’t gotten that before, but I got it yesterday. I hope that GH will revisit Kevin / Ryan at some point.

    Personally I thought this episode was epic. The mask thing didn’t bother me. I had not heard/read any spoilers concerning this redo “mask” scene, but I did feel that Anna was off the whole time she was talking to Faison. In other words I wasn’t really surprised when she started to pull off her face. I actually like the idea that Faison got played the same way he fooled Anna for all those months. Anyway….

    I loved this episode for a few reasons. Very happy to see Elizabeth is still breathing for one…AND I have always loved the friendship between Patrick and Elizabeth. I thought the scenes in Kelly’s were wonderful. I especially loved the Scrubs montage. I loved how Emma and Robin made the same wish and blew out the candle at the same time.

    I loved the Mac and Robert scenes with him viewing Robin’s funeral. I teared up many times through out this episode…I thought it was very touching and well done.

    I am glad they had Duke reminisce and talk of Robin…even if it was with Olivia of all people.

    FH was just wonderful yesterday. Her scenes with AH were intense. I actually had to re-watch all of these scenes after the reveal, to catch all the differences she put into playing herself as Obrecht. Yes I agree Obrecht and Anna aren’t even close in size, but I think they had to play that down for the shock value at the end. It’s a soap LOL….things aren’t always realistic.

    For me this was an excellent episode. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    This is how you do a soap! Can’t ask for much better than this. All week has been excellent – Sonny threatening Ava, Heather/Franco/Diane, Olivia/Robert/Duke, Spixie vs. Lante, Robin/Patrick/Emma, Alexis/Julian/Carly, Sam + Silas, Ana/Faison/Dr. O, heck even the silly teens were used well in their episode. Great balance.

    PS with Halloween coming up I’d like to know where Olbrecht and Faison do their mask shopping LOL.

    I’m glad to see that the majority of the people on here were like me and thought this was an excellent episode. FH played those scenes perfectly and managed to bring across to the audience that something was off with Anna without being obvious. Cartini have definitely not been at their low in the last few weeks of GH, quite the opposite.

    KateHoward- Sorry but KM most certainly doesn’t need to loose weight and is very beautiful.. She is awesome and loved on this show. I try to ignore your constant referances to Megan Ward/Kate but this is to far. Maybe you are bitter that your character can’t hold a candle to KM/Robin, or maybe you are just trying to start an arguement. But trust me- for me and many others seeing KM back is a breath of fresh air. She and her family are part of the epic Scorpios. She has carried her portion of memorable stories on this show.. It’s one thing to knock a character but please leave the actress alone.. It’s very petty!

    Thanks JASAMMABBY. I wanted to say something to KateHoward’s igonorant post but I didn’t find the right words (and I agree with what Logan said). You said it perfectly.

    I am way behind so I haven’t seen this eppy yet but am glad to hear of the scene between Liz and Patrick. I LOVED the scene quite a while back where Liz was in the mental hospital and Patrick went to visit her and she was sitting on the floor and Patrick sat down on the floor beside her to talk to her. I have said all along that I think the writers dropped the ball when Kimberly left. They should’ve played on the friendship between Patrick and Liz and had them fall in love and then bring Robin back when her husband is in love with her friend. That would’ve been much better than the Britt/Sabrina stuff and would’ve given great storyline to Jason and Rebecca. I don’t dislike Sabrina or the storyline but it would’ve really played more into the core characters and been a true who to root for story if Liz was the other woman. Liz is a legacy character, Robin’s dear friend and a character/actress that is very popular. It would’ve been a much more intense story with fans truly torn over who to root for. This storyline is good but its a no brainer, of course we are gonna want him with Robin.

    Just a fantastic episode all round. The show has been great lately — a good mix of stories, no outright clinkers, and really good pacing. I think they’re handling Robin’s return beautifully.

    Dr. O pulling off her Anna mask was epic!!!! Faison getting a latex taste of his own medicine! Loved the Patrick/Liz scenes! Plus Robert and Mac. And LOVE Robin being back.

    Yes, another fake mask reveal, but I loved it. Kudos to Finola H. for the slow transformation, from Anna into Dr O, the eyes, the voice. Great acting, as did Ian B did with Duke /Faison mask. I know it’s bizarre, in real-life thinking, but I enjoyed the whole thing, better then the usual soap stories going on with the soaps right now. Ron C is very creative, I give him that thru good and bad stories.
    Faison is always amazing to watching and Dr. O, my all-time favorite villian! The actress playing the part is amazing!

    Having just skimmed the first 2 comments before writing, i gotta co-sign 150% with GHFan777, i even used these same words to a friend — EPIC. My pulse was racing the entire episode, seeing all these ICONIC characters in the same episode, with NO FILLER OR FLUFF (except for Olivia lol), and at the SAME TIME, celebrating Robin’s birthday. I personally thought it was a GENIUS piece of work, but you can’t please everyone all the time! 2 thumbs way up! The f-ing trenchcoat and scarf on “faux” Anna/Finola gets a shout out, could she even look better as REAL Anna? Loved the European vibe of the facility that Faison is at, the lighting, sets, everything rocked imo.

    Excuse me!!! I was watching GH when little KM came on the show. I was there for many of the Scorpio story arks. Don’t you dare try to give me a history lesson on GH! Further more KM is NOT DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!! She is not, its a fact and one I suggest you get use to. I am being honest just like any movie casting agent would be. I am positive that one of the hindrances of KM transitioning unto the big screen was because of her looks. KM was on Legally Blonde with Reese Witherspoon, but she never could find any other major roles. She wants to be behind the screen because of the demand Hollywood has for women to look a certain way.

    I was not being mean or vile, I made it clear that KM is a pretty girl just not leading lady material. by the way I am over the fact that Megan is no longer on GH, but guess what sweets, that type of character does exist and I am a good example of the Kate Howard persona. Deal with it!!!!
