C'mon, you knew Eli's eyes would open at the end of last season, didn't you? Of course, what kind of condition he's in remains to be seen, though Nate said the aneurysm was gone and, in tonight's second season premiere, so are Eli's visions — at least for the last six months.

Complications from his latest surgery, coupled with the existing trauma caused by chemotherapy, have sent General Hospital: Night Shift's Robert Scorpio into a coma. As things look dire, the resilient former superspy is visited on the SOAPnet spin-off's Oct. 14 season finale by a bevy of buds, Luke (Anthony Geary), Anna (Finola Hughes) and brother Mac (John J. York) included.
TVGuide.com welcomed the opportunity to catch up with two of Robbie's visitors, John Reilly and Sharon Wyatt, who back in GH's globe-trotting days played former WSB boss Sean Donnelly and his starlet-turned-newswoman wife, Tiffany.
See what the two actors had to say, after the jump.
SOAPnet's General Hospital: Night Shift had an overload of material for its season finale, so the wrap-up is now being presented as a two-parter that ends Oct 21. The plot: Patrick's actions with a patient culminate in an explosion that rocks Port Charles. The finale also boasts a class reunion of GH '80s greats, including Robert (Tristan Rogers), Anna (Finola Hughes), Luke (Tony Geary) and — this is so cool! — Sean (John Reilly) and Tiffany (Sharon Wyatt). — Michael Logan
