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: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
