Anna A To Z
A review of the WSB agent’s alphabet reveals why the superspy is a true GENERAL HOSPITAL hero
Washether facing off with the latest Big Bad to hit Port Charles
the PCPD commissioner, a special agent or a civilian, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Anna always seems to come out on top. Of course, there was that dark period when she worked for the wrong side. But, hey, not even death could keep her down for long! So to help familiarize yourself with one of the world’s best agents, take a gander at our top-secret file on her, from A to Z!
AAlex: Anna’s identical twin who was discovered late in life. Alex was once programmed to have her sister’s memories and has twice assumed her identity — this last time, after kidnapping her!
BBart: The man who found and cared for an amnesiac Anna for almost a decade after the boat explosion that nearly took her life.
CCasey: The alien — as in “from outer space”! — that Anna helped find the crystals he needed to return to his home planet, Lumina.
DDuke: Arguably Anna’s true love, this Scotsman was impersonated by two different men and returned from the grave twice (though the first time turned out to be imposter Jonathan Paget) to reunite with his lady love. Alas, on his last return, Duke was shot and killed by Mob enforcer Carlos!
EEmma: Robin and Patrick’s daughter and Anna’s granddaughter. Though she relocated to California with her parents, Emma still visits her grandmother from time to time and is already showing signs that she’s inherited her supersleuth gene.
FFaison: This criminal mastermind had been obsessed with Anna ever since hiring her to be part of his evil cartel, DVX. Before (finally!) being killed, he showed his twisted love by stalking her, tormenting her, kidnapping her, blowing her up and impersonating Duke!
GGriffin: Speaking of Duke, this is his long-lost son. While the Scotsman never knew of his existence, since coming to Port Charles and introducing himself, he has become like a surrogate son to Anna.
HHolly: Anna’s first friend upon coming to Port Charles — at least until Holly learned that Anna and her husband, Robert, were once WSB partners and married on top of it!
IIncurable: Anna was forced to face her mortality last year when she was diagnosed with polycythemia vera, a rare but treatable cancer.
The last name of the woman who was so consumed by jealousy when she couldn’t have Duke that she rigged an elevator to take him out. Olivia failed, but the stunt cost Anna the baby she was carrying. Olivia eventually “died,” only to return gunning for Griffin!
KKiller: While Anna has killed plenty of people in her years in law enforcement, playing judge, jury and executioner by killing Duke’s murderer plagued her. Luckily, Carlos had faked his death, and when he was killed for real, Anna’s hands were clean!
LLuke: The rogue with whom Anna almost began a relationship after Robin was believed dead. Their romance slowed to a crawl when Heather kidnapped Luke, then hit the skids completely after Duke turned up alive.
MMac: Thanks to Anna and Robert Scorpio’s presumed deaths in the ‘90s, a young Robin was adopted by her uncle, who still serves as a father figure.
NNoah: The reformed playboy with whom Anna shared a brief fling — until Patrick and Robin stepped in and made it clear they weren’t comfortable with their parents becoming an item!
OObrecht: The now (mostly) reformed doc who poisoned both Robert and Duke in her desperate quest to win Faison’s love and approval. While Duke’s neardeath experience led Anna to realize the depth of her love, that didn’t stop her from bringing the villainous doctor to justice!
PPine Valley: After being found alive years after Faison’s boat explosion, Anna was taken to this Philadelphia suburb to be treated for seizures, temporarily relocating her to ALL MY CHILDREN.
QQuartermaines: The family that opened up its Shakespearean garden for Robert and Anna’s wedding never dreamt that the bride would find a “deceased” Edward alive and well while on her honeymoon in Bermuda!
RRobin: After spending much of her childhood in danger and without her parents, Anna and Robert’s daughter grew up to be one of Port Charles’ (and now Berkeley’s) most talented docs — which only increased her appeal to evildoers like Helena!
SScorpio: Anna and her former husband (twice over) and WSB partner, Robert, have survived decades of a roller-coaster relationship that’s been filled with adventures, double-crosses, love, lust, betrayal and a secret daughter! (See above.)
TTango: After Anna taught Duke the dance of love in 1986, their tangos became a special thing for the couple and their fans. They even shared one last, fantasy dance after his death.
UUnstoppable: Anna’s been frostbitten, whacked over the head, kidnapped, strangled, locked in a meat locker, presumed dead and even diagnosed with cancer… and she always pulls through.
VValentin: This bastard Cassadine was Anna’s WSB training pal — until her sister pretended to be her and seduced him into stealing the chimera! He harbored a grudge until Alex’s double-cross was exposed. But even with the truth out there, Anna’s feelings for the killer have shifted only slightly.
WWorld Security Bureau: This international spy agency has kept Anna busy for decades and is now run by former Port Charles operative/pop star Frisco Jones.
XXenophile: The Brit isn’t just an international spy living in the States — her great love stories have been with a Scotsman, an Aussie and an American. She certainly seems to be attracted to all things foreign!
YYang: The identity a presumed-dead Robert assumed to get close to Mob boss Mr. Wu in order to steal the infamous Aztec treasure back from the doublecrossing Sean Donely!
ZZipped: No one can keep her lips sealed better than Anna, who hid a marriage to Robert, her daughter’s maternity and paternity, and more than a few of her professional partnerships over the years!
“You don’t have to try too hard to save her.”
“Your Netflix password or your life!”
“Wonder Twin powers… activate!”
“I get it already — they were hitched!”
“I got Carlos’ Netflix password. Shall we
order in and watch Staying Alive?”
“There’s no more champagne? See ya, Pine Valley!”
“What’s Anna got that you don’t, Leisl? Well, for starters, my undying affection.”
“Man, we coulda bopped
till we dropped, too.”
“No, dear, I wasn’t asking you to dip me. I made guac.”
Anna had Robin’s back… when she was around.
“I’ve got my eye on you. Both eyes, actually.”
