Now, we love to see when soap operas get mentioned on late night talk shows or in mainstream pop culture! And once again, it’s General Hospital that is the talk of the town!

This week on Arsenio Hall’s talker, the host sets up a shot clock and issued a challenge to ESPN columnist/analyst/radio host Stephen A. Smith! Smith had 24 seconds on the clock to weigh-in on some of the hottest topics in sports and television including the Miami Dolphins Richie Incognito saga, Lamar Odom, Scandal’s Kerry Washington, and General Hospital’s Robin/Patrick/Sabrina dilemma!  And let us tell you this, Stephen A. watches the ABC soap!

When the shot clock began, regarding General Hospital and who Patrick should choose, Smith said:  “Robin! Listen, I am partial to a honey that can speak Spanish and is bilingual. Sabrina’s nice, but Robin’s the wife.  She is gorgeous in her own right.  They got a kid together.  And, it wasn’t like you lost interest in her, you were in love her, but you thought she died, but she ends up alive.  So it’s a touchy situation for Patrick. BUT, in the end, who did your little baby girl run to when she was her mama?”

Watch Stephen A. Smith discuss what Dr. Patrick Drake should do and why Stephen picked Robin after the jump! Then, let us know if you agree with assessment of the situation?

Because Patrick cant figure out which one he wants, i say Robin and Sabrina should just dump him and move on!

I don’t see a video??? I hope Patrick chooses Robin. But I don’t see a good ending in the long run. Kimberly McCullough is only on the show temporarily. So what happens when she leaves? Robin is either going to die again, for their going to get a divorce. Or she will leave to do research and while she’s gone one of them will cheat. I don’t know why they killed her off to begin with and then made her “undead.” Or back to the same problems as we had before because Kimberly does not want to be an actress she wants to be a director. It would not be fair to have her die again. I don’t see the point, as much as I’ve loved Kimberly since she was a little girl and still love her now, and love the character, of having her come back only to leave again. I would love for her to stay as Robin, and just take the leaves once in a while and have Robin be her main focus. But from everything I’ve read that’s not the case. I read somewhere maybe here in an interview on Michael Fairman’s page to Kimberly said that there is no way that you’re going to recast Robin. I feel that’s not fair if she just wants to be Robin once in a while or if this is her last time and she’s leaving soon. Robin is a part of the fabric of General Hospital and needs to be there.

It wouldn’t matter if KM stay or not because on soaps there is no such thing as a happily married couple for very long– eventually something would break them apart. The only way these two could have a happy ending is if Robin, Patrick and Emma leave town together, never to be seen again on screen. This is the double edge sword of being a soap super couple– if the stay happy on screen they are considered boring, so the writers will have the inevitable break up and if the writers want them to live happily ever after it is usually at the expense of losing the characters altogether because they are written off the show. So as a fan of any couple on any soap, a viewer has enjoy the moment, and not think too much of the future because most soap couples don’t have futures, just now.

So funny, now Skip Bayless just needs to weigh in on who Patrick should pick. LOL

I have no idea who this guy is, but he’s very wise lol I like him! #TeamScrubs!

As for Kimberly’s future on the show, it hasn’t been released, but no one can say for sure. Finola just directed a movie and is still acting, so who’s to say Kimberly can’t do the same? Tony Geary had been taking extended breaks for years. Kimberly has been on this show for 28 years and has literally been loyal to it her whole life. She’s won two Emmy’s as Robin, and was the center of one of soap’s most groundbreaking stories. Hasn’t she earned the right to spread her wings, while also being given a safe place to call home? It’s evident she loves what she’s doing.

Most soap charcters can be recast, but there are some that are just unimaginable with anyone else playing them. I’d put Robin Scorpio in that category.

c’mon, Patrick and Robin became stagnate years ago and it would best if they both moved on and had new love interests, great stories for them..
Together they are a snooozz fest, it is true..
I want Sabrina, Carlos, Patrick and throw Ava in for some great suspense stories and Ava and Carlos would be out to take Patrick out!
I really believe RC will go the high drama way for great suspense stories!

That is much better than watching Patrick and Robin watching tv and spoiling Emma… lol
Patrick and Robin may be together for a week for us to watch Patrick forced to pretend he still loves Robin..
We’ll see …

I love guys that watch soaps. Just passing through a room they size situations up quickly and are quick in speaking up. My brother is hilarious when doing that. The GH writers are whack. They have wasted a lot of story by choosing to go in this unnecessary direction. They should have asked the audience which way to go. Starting back when the had Robin’s parents decide not to tell Patrick and Mac about Robin possibly being alive. They took a lot of exciting, adrenalin producing drama out of the story. Weird. It’s like the don’t want this story to succeed or something. I’ve not now or since Robin died almost 2 years ago bought what the writers are constantly cramming down my throat about Patrick. Especially his whole deal with “moving on” or rather the whole town’s pushing him to do so. The better story, until Robin returned, would have been the widower committed/ to weathering the storm and raising his daughter, alone. Patrick, even in his pod form, over the last 8 months of this fake feeling relationship has been all about Robin. So dead or alive his choice is his true love – Robin!

Patrick and Sabrina!!!!!!
Patrick will eventually pick Sabrina, no doubt of that..

Patrick may return to Robin out of guilt,
and then realize what was no longer is..
and then he will beg for Sabrina to take him back..

My guess, if Kimberly contract is as rumored to be for six month.

Partick chooses Robin. Sabrina will be pregant and they will lie to Robin and claim it’s a Carlos’s kid. Robin gets a amazing job offer but Patrick will not want to leave PC. She figures it out and leaves town with Emma for the Job offer.

However it could be different if Kimberly contract is longer

Patrick will be Sabrina because he has put Robin in a special place in his heart and has moved on. You can’t turn back. If Sabrina is pregnant that would be so typical soap writers to add it to the storyline and then say it was Carlos when it was Patrick all along and Patrick doesn’t find out until the baby is born and they need a blood transfusion or something that only Patrick can provide. Sound familiar? Instead of dragging the fans down this all too familiar highway, why can’t the writers just let Patrick choose Sabrina NOW and move on to another storyline?? Robin WAS good, but lately she just do it anymore for the role. I think she outgrew the Robin character that we all knew. Sabrina is good for Patrick and they should be allowed to continue the storyline as it was meant to be…and get rid of Carlos – don’t like him at all.
Writers are you reading this??? IF you want ratings — Patrick should pick Sabrina and take it from there — With custody and visitations, Robin leaving for a dream job, etc. It could make a good story.

Patrick should definitely pick Robin. He might love Sabrina but he’s in love with Robin always was and always will be. He never took his engagement ring off until Carlos noticed it. He even hesitated when he was to say his I do’s. Robin all the way. Sabrina is too needy. I liked her over Britt but Robin and Patrick belong together. Let’s just hope Ron thinks so too.

I think his will choose Robin because of history and child

Robin Robin Robin!!!!! I love Robin, and Patrick and Robin were so in love with each other…I saw Robin grow up on General Hospital and I hate it when she leaves!! To have her die was horrific for all fans! Sabrina is a nice girl, but not for Patrick. He should have been left a widower for longer, not a couple so soon. But we want Patrick to choose Robin!!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
