GENERAL HOSPITAL: On The Bridge, Robin Explains To Jason Their Past!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital it was Kimberly McCullough (Robin) front and center stage alongside Billy Miller as Jason, as Robin finally meets up with her friend, and on the same bridge no less, which has been such a vital and key part to both their pasts and ultimately their futures.

In an extremely touching performance by McCullough, Robin explains to Jason, who can’t recall any part of their past, how they fell in love, how they broke-up, and how without Jason she would not have become a doctor, had a family, and became the woman she is today.   Robin even recounted her love story with Stone, and that she contracted HIV, and did not know whether she wanted a life on the then cocktail protocol.

She goes to say that Jason was the boy with no past when she met him.  Robin knew him originally as Jason Quartermaine, and not Jason Morgan.  But after his original accident, and he became Jason M, the two connected.   Ultimately, his choosing to continue to work for Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Robin not wanting to be a part of that world, ended their romantic time together.

As Robin explains theit past, Jason seems to begin to muster up some deep emotion for her and feels comfortable the way she seems to be willing to accept him as he is, which is something he did for her many years ago.   As the conversation ends,  Robin says she still has faith in Jason and kisses him on the cheek and leaves.  Later, Jason  has a sudden fragment of a memory of a young Robin (complete with old GH clip) talking to him on the bridge.

What did you think of the scenes on the bridge between Jason and Robin?  The performance of Kimberly McCullough? Will Robin’s chat get through to the memories of Jason? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

It felt genuine and natural….not contrived, Robin simply stating facts.
Had she come across Steve Burton/Jason on that bridge…it would
have been perfection.

Hi, Fanny.
Hope you had a great Christmas with your loved ones.
I said something to that effect, also. Robin and this Jason were so at ease with each other, it was impressive considering they never worked together before. I loved it! Later, my lady.

Most the scenes were a talking repeat of what we had already known or seen/ a rerun thing..

Hi, su, That is true to a certain extend, su….only because it is a soap and we expect movement. Yes, I understand. But, we can also equate this to real life. It is a very natural and normal happening that when friends and family get together, we tend to repeat the same stories, no matter how many times we have heard or said them before. With my family it’s usually poking fun of everyone for having done something stupid or having made a faux pas, in the past. I especially enjoyed Robin and Jason as they sort of ‘reminisced’.

Hey CeeCee, I am really glad you got a “taste” of the Scorpios. They are wonderful and my favorite GH family. And Robin and Jason…aaah. Someday when you have time you should go to “that site” and access the first scenes where Robin is introduced. Kim was only seven. She is special to a lot of us because we got to see her grow up on screen, absolutely a unique occurrence in daytime. She made her debut 30 years ago, dropped off at Robert’s doorstep. She did not know he was her dad, and she called him “Robbie.” It was… Read more »

@Tristan. Hi, Tristan. I can certainly identify. I started watching OLTL when I was only ten years old. I loved the show because Kristen Alderson was a kid herself….only six….and, grew up on set just like Kimberly. It was heartbreaking for me when the show was cancelled. No, I wasn’t disappointed. I was truly moved, Tristan. Thank you for caring. I actually did catch a couple of early episodes with Robin as a child. Her nanny, Filomena, I think, reminded me of my own nanny. I was familiar with Finola since she also appeared on AMC, in which my Gran… Read more »

CeeCee, I know exactly what you mean about OLTL being cancelled. I watched As the World Turns from when I was six years old until it was cancelled and I bawled my eyes out. My mom and I used to be able to turn it on in the radio in our car and we’d listen and guess what was happening when suspenseful music was playing with no dialog. Now my mom and ATWT are both gone, but I’ll treasure those memories forever. Also, I hope your family is kind when they poke fun about past mistakes. My husband’s fam has… Read more »

The scenes on the bridge were beautifully well written and acted. Kimberly was really present and committed in these scenes and Billy Miller showed what he is capable of. The one thing that distracted me is that after a year of absolutely nobody recognizing Jake as Jason, Robin immediately knew who he was when he said hello. This was the first time she had seen him with his new face! It gave me a chuckle…thankfully the ensuing scenes drew me in 100%. Long live GH! P.S. – I also found it funny that Paul Hornsby texted the evil Raj, whose… Read more »

I, too, made the assumption that Jason had ample opportunity to see Robin’s picture in town to recognize him. Her recognition of him, I think, just naturally flowed from being called by name by the man on the bridge she had been talking about with Elizabeth, as well as the significance of the location to both of them through the years. I liked the scene & rehash of history, finding it appropriate for this new Jason without a memory of his past – yet.

I can’t like this enough.

Speaking of Snarly Carly and Groundhogs Day with Sonny, where did her erstwhile brother Lucas go?! We get 3,000 scenes with Sonny and Carly until I want to stab my tv. But Lucas doesn’t get so much as a under five once a month. Sheesh.

The Jason stuff took waaaay too long to reveal. Can we pick up the pace already.

Teenage Kimberly did not age into a credible adult actor. Her decision to take up directing is wise and I wish her every great success.

Dylan, i i’m not picking on you since your not the only person who always brings up wanting jason to be or want to be a doctor again but tell me, is he suppose to become one within a few months? i just think at this point in the characters history, that dream is long gone.

Ashleigh
Guest
Ashleigh

If the guy can get shot, be brought back to life, have his face totally reconstructed, lose his entire memory, end up just happening to fall in love with his past love, be subjected to mind control, etc….I think they could possibly find a way to turn him into a doctor. I mean….they’ve explained Robin repeatedly leaving her beloved daughter and we bought it. Just saying, soap fans are pretty forgiving. That being said, I wouldn’t want him working on me.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Robin came as close to anyone intimating as such, Dylan. I think that is as close as we are going to get.
But here is what I am wondering–is there going to be a scene in which Jason, who now seems to abhor violence while fearing his own proclivity for violence, finds out that his BFF Sonny murdered his brother in cold blood and got away with it?

Tristan
Guest
Tristan

Dylan, I hate to say it but you called Jason what he is, “a brain damaged murderer.” He would never get into med school, let alone have the smarts to become a dr., because of all that brain damage. He needs to find something legal and moral that doesn’t tax too much of what IS left of his brain.

KM did a great job, but the scenes were a let down for me. I wish someone would just say to Jason it is ok to be who you are now. A third incarnation. Monica, Robin and Liz accept him as is. Sam has accepted him as her friend. Jason should realize he belongs with Liz or no one for awhile.

Harry
Guest
Harry

I love Lizzy and so it pains me to say this, but she accepts Jason for who he is because the Jason who embraces Sonny’s world cannot embrace her simultaneously.
Her reasons are selfish and I think she even admits it.

“Ultimately, his choosing to work for Sonny and Robin not wanting to be a part of that world, ended their romantic time together.”

I think GH might want to check their history because while Jason and Robin did initially break up because his involvement with the mob they ended up reconciling and their “romantic time” REALLY ended because Robin told AJ that Jason was a lying liar for claiming to be Michael’s father and Jason got all mad for being called out.

Oh wait — we can’t let something like facts paint St. Jason in an unfavorable light…

Fanny
Guest
Fanny

Alan, your right…FACT CHECK!!!

KP
Guest
KP

Wrong. They had broken up a day or two before she told AJ. Robin and Jason were NOT together when she went to Carly’s house to tell Jason that she told AJ about Michael to protect Michael and Jason from Carly. You can see the video on Youtube of when she tells AJ. AJ says ” I heard you and Jason broke up”, Robin says “Jason told you?” and AJ says “no, Carly”.. Robin then tells AJ about Michael.. perhaps in some small way as a payback to Carly.. but moreso to get Jason back from Carly. It backfired.

clh

Exactly! But it wasn’t her place to tell either. She did it for selfish reasons, of not wanting Jason to be the father.

Harry
Guest

Robin was not being selfish and Jason, Sonny and Carly were horrid to her after she did the right thing by both Michael and AJ. Not allowing AJ to be a father to his own child was a heinous thing to do. Robin always knew that Carly was and is a destructive, possessive and controlling force. This was the first time I hated that unholy trinity that is Sonny, Carly and Jason. Sonny was especially disappointing because he loved Robin like a daughter after Stone died. Both Sonny and Jason owed Robin better. She did the right thing and it… Read more »

I am at a serious loss here. Really??? Any of you are attempting to show how bad AJ was, as compared to Sonny?? Rack up a list of how many characters who have been shot, maimed, injured, and murdered directly because of Sonny. All AJ ever did was try to be a better person and a better father, and continually had to use underhanded means to do that. Sonny hung the guy on a freakin’ meat hook, and forced him to sign away his parental rights!! That does NOT make him Michael’s father, that makes him Michael’s kidnapper!! Even though… Read more »

I liked the bridge story with Robin and Jason. Thought Kim and Billy really pulled it off, especially since I don’t think they’ve ever done scenes with each other before. Simple, no distraction, like climbing to the top of the mountain and experiencing time out of time for a few minutes for those of us who remember Robin and Jason back when.

The actors were outstanding , but the writers did not do ther due diligence. They didn’t break up because of Jason working for So my, they broke up because Robin spilled the beans about Michael being AJ’s. As far as Robin recognizing him, I wa bothered at first but the. I remembered thy she saw him before he was hit by the car.

When I saw Robin and Jason on the bridge I thought of CeeCee. She had stated that she wasnt to familiar with Robin and Jason and their history. Well C, THAT was it in a nutshell. Two people who loved and supported each other and never had nothing but respect and supported each other. People seem to have a problem with Robin nowadays but this was a scene to remind fans that Robin was a sweet sweet girl who held many hands back in the nineties. The 2000’s, she just hasnt been on a lot to solidify her legacy. I… Read more »

I truly enjoyed their scenes so much more than any scenes to date with Sam, Liz, or Carly they came across as genuine pure and unassuming that’s how real love is. Sam is to pushy and Carly is desperate and Liz urgh… I felt the two actors had real chemistry its to bad Robyn has to go but if Sam and Jason are going to work she has to lose the desperation and start over from scratch and fall in love all over again with who he is now.

“Coffee importer” is his cover business. Until it’s specifically stated, I continue to assume that Sonny controls the Five Families with counterfeit designer goods. Fake Manolos & Birkin bags are what keep those crooks in line. 😉

Yeah, I think the writers won’t ever let on what it is he really does. They want to keep Sonny (and Jason) as bad asses but they still want them to be “good guys”. Drugs and guns are bad so they don’t deal with that. I told my girlfriend, it’s either knock off Louis Vuitton stuff or diamonds, ha ha.

From history, we know for a fact that Sonny delights in exploiting teenage strippers. We know that he emotionally and physically abuses women he claims to love. We know that he is a child kidnapper. We know that he is a cold blooded serial murderer, who feels no remorse other than getting caught. We know he is a man who would viciously shoot a cop with NO plan as to who would clean up the body…..of the carcass that was his SON. We know that he threatened to murder Carly SEVERAL times, he woman he currently claims to love. Huh?… Read more »

Even when we disagree, this GH group here on Michael’s site is THE best around: intelligent, passionate, quirky, controversial.

Most “rare,” to be sure, Tristan! (Well put!) I think the main difference between other “GH group sites” and the one here at MFSoaps is that no matter how—as you point out—“passionate” we may be in stating our assertions, we genuinely like most of the other posters, respect their opinions…..and often even admire them as friends of comparable intellect, interest and imagination….and it shows. As the majority demonstrates, that ethos permeates these threads, as we somehow manage to strike the perfect balance of being extremely topical, yet also going off on some highly entertaining and edifying tangents, so that one… Read more »

Robin tried to save Jason from Carly using Michael to control him. Robin was leaving for Paris to become a doctor. She thought AJ deserved to be a father to his son. She didn’t know her father until she was seven, . She was leaving the show so no matter that what she did was right, she was made the goat for Scummy , Jason and Snarly the unholy three.
