HomeTVGeneral HospitalPerkie’s Observations: The Mother of All Reunions Finally Happens on General Hospital! Perkie November 26, 2013 General Hospital, TV Recap 32 Comments Robert and Robin hug. Robert apologizes for failing her, by allowing himself to get stuck by Dr. O’s needle. Robin says he saved her life. The needle was meant for her and would have killed her. Robin tells him she saw Patrick and Emma. She’s worried about Faison and his obsession with Anna. Luke demands to know where Robin and Duke are, but Faison plays coy. Luke complains about Faison’s role in Lucky’s kidnapping, though Faison puts the blame on Helena. Faison taunts Luke about shooting him, so Luke does, only to find out Faison was wearing a vest. Faison gets the best of Luke. Dr. Obrecht decides she’s going to kill Duke in front of Anna. She feels Faison only sees Anna, no matter what Liesl does for him. Anna says she despises Faison, but wants Dr. O to leave Duke alone and kill her instead. Anna puts her gun down, but Liesl doesn’t trust her. Dr. Obrecht decides she won’t shoot Anna, because Faison would never forgive her. She sets her sights on Duke again, only to have him catch her off guard and get the best of her. Duke and Anna reunite and she tells him Robin is alive and on Spoon Island. Duke stands guard over Dr. O and sends Anna to find Robin. Brad catches Britt in the lab getting Luke’s sample. Britt complains he was supposed to keep an eye on Nik’s scientist. Brad questions who the woman was. Brad tells her he thinks it was Robin — based on what Carlos told him. Brad demands to know the truth, or he’ll reveal he isn't Ben’s father. Patrick isn't happy to see Ava at his door. She tells him he shouldn’t be going through with the wedding, because his wife is alive. Patrick accuses Ava of being the one who called him pretending to be Robin. Ava tells him Carlos saw Robin at the lab. Patrick doesn’t believe Robin would be in the lab if she were alive and not with him and Emma. Ava thinks there’s a small part of Patrick that believes his wife is alive. She encourages him to learn the truth. Sabrina is thrilled to have Juan at her door. Her cousin reveals he brought her mother’s wedding dress. Sabrina always dreamed of getting married in the dress and feels she’ll have a part of her mother at her wedding. Liz and Juan make small talk before he leaves. He tells her he married a girl named Becky. Sabrina thanks Felix and Liz for being friends and feels the best is yet to come. Robert stops Faison from shooting Luke and ties him up. Anna comes out of tunnels and is reunited with Robin. 32 Responses soapjunkie88 November 26, 2013 So amazing! Anna finally has her girl back. I’m so happy. It was a great episode seeing everyone facing off with each other on Wyndemere. But when it Robin find out that Duke is alive? Didn’t she think that Faison just faked that? If soaps – and horror movies for that matter – tell you something, it’s always to shoot the villain in the head. Yeah it’s messy but you can actually assume that he’s dead for real. JUAN! How gorgeous Michael looks. Becky is one lucky woman and he only lucky man. Gorgeous looking couple! I smiled when Juan said that he has this wonderful wife named Becky. Didn’t care about Sabrina. This was all about Juan/Liz. :love: I LOVED seeing bitchy Britt talking to Brad. And yeah, Ava is right. Patrick shouldn’t even think about to get married. Dead or not, he’s still in love with another woman and that’s not his wife-to-be. I’m so happy that someone finally called him out on it instead of wishing Sabrina and him good luck.

Get that Becky, lol Excellent episode. Faison wearing the bullet proof vest only in soap to keep him alive. The mother daughter reunion did not disappoint. Neither did the father daughter reunion. Ava to Patrick, robin is alive was outstanding. Best soap on American TV.

LOL I’m sorry but I for one always hated the AMC reunion. It wasn’t theirs to do. This Robin/Anna reunion had no impact whatsoever. Robin was there for one hot second and then she was gone again. And I remember later when they were reunited on GH, people asking how Robin even knows that her mother is alive. LOL Not to mention that their reunion on GH just started and is under much different circumstances. We just saw them seeing each other at the end of yesterday’s episode. Nothing more. So it’s even a big quick to judge IMO. Log in to Reply giogio November 26, 2013 Does anyone know if Juan is here to stay or it was just this once? I loved the spark in Becky’s eyes just looking at her man. I loved the reunion with Robin but I am not liking this backburning. Dont like it. GH was never like that. They better think again about continuing with that. Log in to Reply heatherwebber10010 November 26, 2013 [quote=bobbyew]Juan married to a Becky, Lmao!

Log in to Reply rlshel1015 November 26, 2013 clearly we are going to get these little nuggets and reunions until Robin interrupts the wedding on Wednesday at the end of the show and we will be forced to wait until Monday to see the follow through. knowing RC though it will be epic and make it a loooooong five days to wait. Log in to Reply sweetiepie November 26, 2013 I guess I am the only one, but Juan was just meh, for me. I got the inside joke about being married to Becky, it was cute and Liz was just beaming, but I never found him to be that exciting. Now the actor who plays Carlos brings the heat. If he and Sabrina would just stop rolling their Rs, I might be able to stand them as a couple. Log in to Reply stefanstavros November 26, 2013 The time when Juan was on GH the first time was during one of my gaps in watching the show, from like ’98-’01 when I was living out of the country. But, boy, that guy is CUTE! And one source said he’s like 43?! Damn, if that’s true he must’ve taken a dip in the fountain of youth. I think he and RH do make a great couple, if nothing more because they’re both short. One of RH’s leading men who I thought looked particularly awkward with her was Rick Hearst. The height was too disparate and he looked too slimy for her. Don’t get me wrong, I think Rick is a great actor and good looking, but Becky looks better with a cuter-type guy who wouldn’t play “menacing”, IMO.

And you did not talk to her while it was on. Everyone else in the room had to watch it to. Log in to Reply tmac November 26, 2013 The rescues and reunions were great, but there is one person still missing…where’s Nik? Last we saw Faison had knocked him out and was dragging him into the tunnels.

Without spoiling anything, they get around to addressing Nik’s disappearance today nand leading into tomorrow…. 0:) Log in to Reply nysam November 26, 2013 The writing, directing and acting was a bit off on an episode that should have been GREAT. The Robert/Robin reunion quickly went from shock & awe (no tears) to resetting story from the past year. Yet neither uttered a line about needing to find Anna, Luke or being concerned that crazy Faison or Olbrecht could hurt them or their loved ones. Let’s just stand around talking about nothing when Anna and our friends are in danger. Weird that Robert didn’t want Robin to hideaway so that she wouldn’t get hurt. The Anna/Olbrecht/Duke scenes were comedic rather than dramatic. We have a super spy and a super villain yet they stand there talking forever calling each other “cow”. Olbrecht calling Anna a cow made sense, but didn’t sound right coming out of Anna’s mouth. The dance of who is going to shoot whom started out tense but quickly became laughable. Robert and Robin barging into the living room to save Luke was odd. The way Kimberly uttered “it’s over Faison” seemed like it was the end of a long work day rather than the end of her 2 year captivity. Why bring Juan back if he served no purpose? The dress could have easily been sent through the mail or Felix could have gotten a photo of it and with the help of Lucy pulled strings to have it redesigned for Sabrina. I was never a Juan fan and this little inside nod seemed a waste of time. Agree that AMC did that Anna/Robin reunion better as did GH back in 1985 when Anna and Robin were reunited in the Asian quarter.

When Anna said that, it REALLY stuck out to me as ??????….It almost seemed like Anna just said it cause she had just recently heard the words. I also think the AMC reunion was a lot better. I thought this reunion needed to take place in a more dramatic setting.

More dramatic & heartfelt Log in to Reply bobbyew November 26, 2013 Great GH Flashback and beautiful reunion. Of course Faison get away again. The rest of the show was ok. Log in to Reply Perkie November 26, 2013 [quote] I also think the AMC reunion was a lot better[/quote] I haven’t seen today (Tuesday’s) episode yet and I’ve only seen the AMC clip online as I didn’t watch AMC, but I think the difference would be that Robin had no idea Anna was alive, so to have her open the door was shocking. Here, Anna has felt for awhile that somehting was off with Robin’s “death” and has known for a few weeks that she’s alive. So it wasn’t shock as much as relief when she saw her standing there. But there better be boatloads of crying today!!! Log in to Reply bobbyew November 26, 2013 AMC is where? Off the air and computer screens. They may have done it better but I’m thankful for what we got with what little coins they have. Log in to Reply Daniel St. John November 26, 2013 Never was a big Juan fan and am happy it looks like he won’t be sticking around…he and Rebecca Herbst had less than zero chemistry in their scenes together despite being married in real life. Those “action” scenes between Luke and Faison were hysterical. Yay! Anna finally gets to see Robin in the flesh! It’s been long overdue. Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. November 27, 2013 I didn’t like Juan then and I don’t now. It was just stupid but the Robin, Robert and Anna reunion was fantastic. Log in to Reply Lindiana Jones November 27, 2013 Kimberly McCullough aka Robin Scorpio Drake needs to get in gear and stop that wedding. Rebecca Herbst new haircut is cute although it is very similar to Laura Wrights. I was happy to see Michael Saucedo as Juan but I do wish they could have kept him on a bit longer. It’s funny how Maxie’s family is all about supporting her as Felicia and Mac have shown up twice. However poor Lulu’s father only managed a phone call and her mother is MIA as usual. Log in to Reply heatherwebber10010 November 27, 2013 I just watched the AMC reunion on YouTube and I think GH did the better job. Just my opinion. AMC depended on synthesized music and slow motion photography. In my opinion the actors are more than capable of carry this off on their own with out the extra production values. GH let the actors’ faces tell all and that was great. Log in to Reply nysam November 27, 2013 @heatherwebber10010…I think the actors are capable as well, BUT what carried today’s scene was the emotional reunion from 28 years ago. I would say the 1985 scene from the Asian Quarter storyline was the best Robin/Anna reunion followed by “Angel” Anna who visited Robin when she found out she was HIV+, Anna/Robin reunite on AMC and last would be today’s. Log in to Reply stefanstavros November 27, 2013 I forgot about the “angel” Anna reunion scene with Robin! That was soooo good and awwwww-worthy! Nysam I agree with your order of the reunions.

The Juan part served no purpose at all. This man in on tour and yet he leaves tour just to prop….sorry bring Sabrina her wedding dress??? That was stupid and made no sense. Although RH did glow in her scenes with him it served no purpose to bring him back. He didn’t share a scene with the man who he thought was his father. He didn’t say hello to Nik who he use to hang with. There was no real emotion when they talked about his first love Emily. He only came to prop Sabrina and that is why it sucked. Although I liked this reunion, I do believe AMC was a little better because of how it was set up. Anna hearing Robin’s voice and the memory of Robin as a child came to her. Then she ran out to get Robin and I love how Robin fainted and Anna grabbed her. Faison wearing a bullet proof vest? Okay. Then the way Luke kicked him over and Faison fell like that. Campy campy campy. Robert looked good. I wish there was more emotion in their scenes but I thought about it and Robert knew Robin was alive but when Robin last saw her daddy, he had a needle sticking out his chest so I thought she would be more shocked. **Random thought, I wonder once Sabrina sees that Robin is alive, will she go from Disney Princess Sabrina to Sharkeisha! Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 November 27, 2013 Loved the Anna/Robin reunion, they had me in tears. And the Robin,Anna, Robert, and Duke scene with their arms around each other-AWWW! It makes me even sadder that Tristan is leaving. Scorpio is so much more exciting then the character of Colin on Y &R. I hope someday he returns again but I’m so glad he was involved in the whole Robin rescue. He has a smile that lights up the room! Finola continues to amaze me. Does anyone know how old she is? She looks fantastic, and doesn’t need a lot of make-up. She deserves an Emmy nod! That Dr O., what a great villian, thanks to some great acting by the actress. You almost feel sorry for her, that the man she is so obsessed with is in love with Anna (“the stupid cow” as she always calls her-Ha!) Micheal Easton was “Looking Good” dressed up in that suit. I like his shorter hair. I am really starting to like Silas. I think ME is bringing more of his own personality into the role with his dry humor. Silas and Sam make such an attractive couple. I love how she looks at him with those flirty eyes. That was so cute when Juan said he is married to a special girl named Becky. She just glowed looking at him. They both are so youthful looking, they never seem to age. I don’t think he’s staying with the show. He is more into music now ( notice how they mentioned Juan being in a band?) and I read he and Scott Reeves are working together on music. I wonder who Liz’s new love will be?
