Robert's grumpy, and it doesn't help that he
seems to be on the outs with everyone- Sean, Anna, Frisco, Bobbie, Cheryl, even
Robin. Cheryl begs him to them another chance, but he refuses to
forgive her for her past betrayal (when she let Anna go to trail for shooting
Olivia despite the fact she knew Anna didn't do it). Frisco begs him for
his job back, and only manages to get back to doing the waterfront beat (a
demotion from his previous post as detective) after taking a bullet in the arm
for Robert during a hostage crisis. Sean's angry at Robert's treatment of
Cheryl and avoids him. Robin's are upset that Lucas could have been
Robert's son (which he wasn't after blood tests proved that Julian Jerome was
the father) while Anna's upset over the fight she had with him.
The Valentine's Day Massacre
After a few failed attempts, Robin finally makes her parents call a truce by
sending them invitations to her valentine dance recital. Robert calls a
truce for one night, but Anna decides it would be a perfect time to get even
with her ex. Donning a gorgeous, tight red dress and her hair all curled up,
Anna interrupts Cheryl's last plea to reconcil, telling a stunned Robert that
"I'll wait in the bar". Cheryl, humiliated that Robert can't take his
eyes off his ex, tells him he'll never have to worry about her again and rushes
off. Robert immediately rushes off to the bar (the duo have a history of
meeting up in bars), only to find Anna gone, and swears in frustration.
However, Anna soon returns and sparks fly as the two take tentative steps toward
a reconciliation, particularly when he pins the bouquet to her dress and the two
stare into each others eyes. At the recital, Anna plays footsies with Robert
(which is seen by Steve and Audrey who are sitting behind them), and when she grabs
his leg during a charged moment during Robin's dance, Robert ends up holding
hands with her. The two are pleased Robin's staying in the dorm overnight
and rush off to have dinner. Before they leave to have a night cap at Robert's,
they feed each other heart candies, he replying "Mine says Kiss Me"
and she responding "Mine says Beware!"
At the penthouse, the duo start
to dance, but when a sore Scorpio flinches in pain (from overexerting himself that morning
with the police karate class), Anna insists she'll massage the kinks out and orders a
weary Robert to lie on the floor. Course, she can't bend in her tight dress, so she'll
have to take it off she tells an astonished Robert. Sitting on his back, she seductively
messages. Then she uses her black stockings (with little red hearts on them) to tie him up
to a pillar, and whispers "You are so hot" as the two begin kissing. Just as
she's got him into a lather, Robert's caught completely off guard when Anna quickly gags
him and dumps a glass of ice water over his head. "It's time for you to shut up".
She then proceeds to rail at him for his poor treatment of her, his refusal to completely
forgive her, and calling her ugly. "I am sexy! I know how to turn a man on, obviously
(pointing to him)", she vehments. Finished, she grabs his white shirt, puts it on,
grabs her dress off the floor, and tells a speechless (and still gagged) Robert, "The gag's on you. So, I'm a sexless old nag. Well, the old nag is leaving!"
The Revenge Backfires
The next morning, Anna awakes and is horrified when she remembers
what happened the night before. Rushing back to Robert's, she finds her furious
ex still tied up, realizes he's going to kill her as soon as he gets free, and
proceeds to beg for forgiveness, claiming she thought he'd be able to untie
himself. When he makes it obvious he's not buying her act, she flees to
find someone who'll release him. Everyone she comes across won't check on him,
so she returns and begs him to let her untie him without killing her, to which
he shouts "Dismember Anna!"
So off she goes again, finally locating Frisco
at Kelly's, and in probably one the most hilarious scene on GH, proceeds to ask him to
Anna: "He may
not have been able to come to the phone because.." (whispering)
"...well, he's tied up."
Frisco mumbles about how busy Robert is.
Anna: "No, I mean he's really
tied up..." (pause) "...You know, bound and gagged." She
then proceeds to tell him that she was the one to tie Robert up.
Frisco (highly amused and astonished): "You
tied him up?"
Anna (embarassed and trying to avoid his questions):
"Will you go over there and untie him?"
Frisco: "You tied Robert up? This is
a whole new side to you...."
Anna: "Yes, this is private Frisco!"
Frisco (rolling his eyes): "Sounds
Anna (gritting her teeth): "Yes, please
keep all your smary little school boy comments to yourself. Will you go and
untie the man? Is there a problem?!"
A highly amused Frisco finishes his
lunch, goes to the penthouse to untie an embarrassed Robert, and oddly steals
Anna's stockings. Freed, Robert puts his revenge in action by breaking into
Anna's waiting for her to return. Arriving home, Anna hears noises and
thinking its an intruder, pulls out her gun at him. Robert, playing it suave,
pulls out champagne and wine glasses and lies that he's not angry. Pulling
her into an embrace, he says that he was thinking about their old ways while
confined and asks if she misses them too. Then abruptly, he pushes her onto
the couch and smirkingly remarks "I guess you've just plain lost it"
as he leaves. Anna's kicking herself afterwards, because she realizes that
both of them weren't acting valentine's night, but were actually really
attracted to one another.
Robert joins the police on the docks, where a protest is to occur
later that afternoon. Walking away, Frisco teases Robert by saying, "Last
Night Looked Like Fun", and Robert smiles recalling the Valentine tie-me up
incident. The Greenbelts, an environmental group, use Kelly's dinner to
prepare for a protest against the docking of the ELQ Tracy ship. Their leader,
Jenny Eckert, is unsuccessful in taking away Robin's table, so she gets Robin to
fold flyers. Unfortunately for Robin, her dad shows up, hoping to stop the
upcoming protest on the docks. Threatening to arrest everyone, he loses it when
he finds Robin there, and the two argue after he orders her home. Robin runs
home and squeals all to mum, who uses the incident as an excuse to confront
Robert. She goes to Kelly's, grabs a sign, and joins the march to the docks.
Arriving, the duo exchange words,
but it's obvious their flirting. When she refuses to leave, Anna gets him to
confess he's afraid she might get hurt. Their conversation's cut short when
Jenny steals a boat and causes the ELQ Tracy to shipwreck. The police work to
help the wounded, and Anna witnesses a stunned Robert throw a man back into the
water after pulling him out. A dazed Robert admits it was his brother, then
rushes off not wanting to talk about it. A curious Anna and Frisco help Mac into
a vehicle that's taking the waterlogged seamen to Kelly's. There, Mac
makes a mysterious call to report the ship's sinking and that he'd "enjoy
being paid in full." Shortly after, Robert arrives and the duo get
into a brawl, with Mac being arrested for decking intervening policemen. Robert
leaves without saying a word to Anna, who's speechless at Robert's sudden
violent outburst. Though Robert fights it, Mac's only given thirty days
community service at the local morgue. He then steals the keys to Robert's
office, scribbles in Robert's scrapbook, and finds an abordiginal puzzlebox.
After having flashbacks to their dad giving them matching bracelets with the
names "Robert" and "Mac", he puts Robert's bracelet back and
replaces a piece of paper in a sealed envelope instead. Robert's furious
when he realizes Mac's been in his office, but doesn't realize he took the
