GENERAL HOSPITAL: Patrick and Robin Remarry & Leave Port Charles! What Did You Think Of The Episode?

It was a very emotional day for not only the fictional characters of the Scorpio-Drake family and their beloved friends, but also for the actors who were watching viewers reactions unfold on social media, while also sharing some heartfelt behind-the-scenes photos from the taping of their final episode together.  Of course, we are talking about Jason Thompson (Patrick) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin), who off and on for ten years created screen magic together as one of the most memorable couples in soap history, Patrick and Robin.

Now on to their grand finale on Thursday’s episode of General Hospital.  As they prepare to start life anew in California, Patrick and Robin at the urging of their daughter Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) get remarried in Port Charles in front of their family and friends.  This tearjerker unfolded and provided Scrubs fans with plenty of hankie-filled moments.   Chief among them was the wedding.  As Mac (John J. York) presided over the ceremony, Patrick and Robin renewed their vows, but not before each of them said their own vows to Emma.  Patrick vowing to make sure Emma’s life in California is just as special as it was in Port Charles, and Robin vowing to never leave Emma’s side ever again.   Moment by moment throughout the episode it became harder to distinguish where the story was unfolding and the real-life goodbyes were happening, because this was indeed Thompson’s last scenes.

After the nuptials, Carly (Laura Wright) finally thanked Robin for bringing Jason Morgan home!  A storypoint that needed to be addressed, because as you recall, Carly and Robin got into a major spat at the hospital shortly before Robin up and left her family to find Jason.  Best friends Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  and Patrick shared an emotional and heartfelt goodbye.  Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) and Robin also shared some special moments before the ceremony and after.   We also noted the moment where the old Billy Abbott ( Miller) wished the new Y&R Billy Abbott (Thompson) well in a scene between Jason and Patrick.

In a touching moment, Sonny (Maurice Benard) thanked Patrick for all of his support and help in getting him this far in his recovery.  Since Sonny’s legs started to move, Patrick told Sonny this is all very encouraging, and he is left in the care of wonderful doctors who will oversee his case.

In a another heart-tugger, Anna (Finola Hughes) gives Emma an airline ticket.  She tells her granddaughter she can come to visit anytime she wants.   Later, when it’s time to say goodbye, we noticed a very special hug between longtime scene partners, Finola Hughes and Jason Thompson as Anna and Patrick said farewell.  Of course, there was also the scene where Anna and Robin said another heartfelt and heartbreaking goodbye – the best mother/daughter on-screen duo on the planet.  Mac also gives his love to Robin as well in another heart-tugger as does her father, Robert (Tristan Rogers), who also tells Patrick to look after his daughter.

In one final moment as she looks around at the Drake home, Robin flashes back and remembers moments of her life with Patrick in a montage.

Finally, the time has come.  Anna tells Patrick and Robin they better leave if they plan on catching their plane.  In this bittersweet moment, they say their final goodbyes and walk out the front door with Emma between them … off to their new life and to their new adventures together as one united family.   They get their happy ending.

Watch the Scrubs montage that aired on yesterday’s episode below.  Then let us know:  What did you think of the episode?  Did you reach for the hankies?  Which moment got to you the most?   Share your sentiments in the comment section below – one last time for the love story of Patrick and Robin.

The show needs another doctor…bring back Steve Webber even if recast…don’t pair him back with Olivia…have him paired with Sam…this way Liz and Jason who should be paired can invite Steve over for dinner and he can bring Sam as his supprise date!!!!…lol

What struck me the most is that more legacy characters have been ushered off canvas, another core/historical family gone. I understand KMC isn’t a full time working actress, but JT left because he was underutilized, Mac & Felicia are basically not on the show anymore and I doubt there are big long term plans for Robert. So when I see Frank & Varni giddy over the exit of these characters, it turns my stomach. Why aren’t Mac & Felica on GH? Two iconic figures on the show and on soaps. John J York has built something on GH, he is… Read more »

You realize now, of course, that the ONLY two families left on GH are the dark, immoral mob families: the Jerome/Davis clan and the Corinthos clan. When the Scorpio-Drakes left, they took with them what is left of GH’s light and moral center. They cannot be replaced. And won’t be. A big gaping hole is left in the show’s fabric: the hole where its heart used to be.

They need to shore up the Quartermaine family and bring back Lucky and, now that Genie Francis is under contract (at long last and long overdue!!!), let the Spencer family be front and center–(if they can redeem Nikolas)–and, for heaven’s sake, let Laura be the titular head–and moral center–of the show. And——how about some levity in the program? We’re overdue for some humor, aren’t we? That could easily be accomplished by giving Laura a passionate love story and love interest.

I think unfortunately the direction GH is headed in, dropping very likable, long-term characters, coincides with their overall programming philosophy. Look at their nightime linup – it’s comprised of flashy, cheap thrill stuff, sex and violence. Look at how little they invest in scenes with Anna and Robert, like the rescue of Robin. It was quick, little money spent on it, no suspenseful outdoors stuff and far from the quallity adventures Anna, Robert, Luke, etc. went on years ago. Crime is “in” at ABC, heart-centered drama and good acting doesn’t mean much to them anymore, day or night.

CeeCee

Ugh…I know, Tristan. Don’t remind me, Lol. Dealing with Sonny and his cohorts day in and day out is not too appealing.
Nancy has good ideas; especially about Mac and Anna…..which reminds me. I never realized what a good looking guy John York is. He’s hardly ever on, so I hadn’t really gotten a good look (unintentional pun, lol). He and Felicia are stunning together. Did I mention how beautiful Christina Malandro Wagner is?

I enjoy the Alexis & daughters clan interaction. They are not dark – and not boring either. The conversation about sex in Kelley’s was good, I thought. I liked how the writers generalized the dialogue to touch on several storylines on the show.

Every comment you make is SO spot on AJQ. The waste that this show and this production team have made with all their new characters is just a tragedy. Nina and Franco first and foremost. Ava Jerome as well, along with Paul Hornsby (whom I was excited for until he turned into YET another DA but secretly a mob criminal.) They just don’t get it, at all.

Much of the poignancy I felt watching Robin and Patrick leave is for the loss of what they represented for the show.

Well, about the best that can be said is Patrick and Robin finally “got there” in the end…and not a moment too soon!!! But what a colorless, nearly joyless ride they took us on to arrive there! First of all, the talents of phenomenal Finola Hughes, Tristan Rogers and Sebastian Roche’ were totally underutilized….the latter two especially seemed merely placed as props to further the very basic plot points required to reunite the Drakes and send them off on their way. I could not have been more disappointed!!! Ditto for the absence of Rick Springfield as Noah….although I could certainly… Read more »

Hi Melissa… You will find on these boards a select few who feel sex over a certain age uncomfortable to watch, inappropriate, not realistic, laughable. The comments directed at Alexis by a few people are repetitive, and continually aimed at Alexis and most definitely because of her age: she should no longer show her cleavage (at “her age” it’s no longer attractive”) and related comments. Her sexual relationship is continually mocked…because she’s so crazy about Julian sexually…”at her age”…even though it’s behind closed doors. It’s continully been pointed out by same few, very few, but frequent poster (s) that Julian… Read more »

It was beautifully done. All the scenes were raw and real. Nothing felt “acted”. The very last scene with Anna, Robert, Patrick, Robin and Emma was extremely hard to watch. There is such a love and respect between them that can never be replaced. This was a magic group of people that fought through the last couple years of story and acted their butts off. No matter what they were given each scene felt real. A huge, huge thank you to the writers and producers for giving “scrubs” a wonderful send off. We can all imagine happier simpler times for… Read more »

A little underwhelmed. At least Patrick and Robin, with Emma in tow, got married again. But the rest of the wedding party seemed like window dressing except for a couple of wrap-up conversations between Robin, Carly, Liz, and Jason. I realize it was short notice, but no music, laughter, festivity to speak of…Maxie where were you? Robert barely had a line, looked like he was on a lunch break from Y&R, and only one daddy/daughter hug…sorta…and then folded chairs and pulled a luggage piece outside. Felicia warmed a seat…that was all. Nothing between Anna and Robert…no meaningful glances, smiles, hugs,… Read more »

I thought it odd that Felicia & Robert weren’t used as well as they could have been. At one point, pulling luggage, I was worried the only dialogue Robert was going to have was to echo what (Emma?) had said. Glad that they could be on the set – special people in the lives of Robin on the show – & agreed to be there, even if not given their moments in the sun that day themselves. Maybe next time!

Sometimes simple ceremonies like this one, without gowns and special sets, are the best. The attendees were the people who meant the most to Patrick and Robin and their family, and they also happen to be longtime vets on GH. I was happy with how the wedding was done and what was said and the true emotion on the set. That said, I do think it’s a shame that a lot of these characters are not featured more on the show, like Mac, Felicia and even Robert. I know TR is on Y&R but he’s recurring there and could be… Read more »

I loved it. Both Kimberly and Jason wore their hearts on their sleeves in the episode. While the entire story wrap up seemed rushed at times, the actors never let the lack of material diminish their efforts in giving the audience their all. I loved watching this family unit over the years and it felt as if a little bit of the heart of the show left with them yesterday. I will miss them.

I haven’t yet seen the episode, as I will binge the week’s shows over the weekend. And really, I am kind of putting it off because I cannot bear the loss of this family! But from all reports, GH did the little family justice in the send-off.

There is a rumour afoot that 10 minutes were edited out of the show, which Nathan Varni claims will be put on ABC.com. Would these minutes include lines spoken by Felicia and Robert, who were both reportedly reduced to props in the episode?

So beautiful. I especially loved when Patrick gave Emma a hug and kiss when she walked down the aisle, because you could really tell it was Jason and Brooklyn in that moment, not just Patrick and Emma. Robin and Patrick’s words to each other felt more like Jason and Kimberly than just Robin and Patrick, and the vows to Emma were fabulous, too, and the montage was wonderful. You could so tell Jason was saying goodbye to family on the show: Finola, Laura, Becky, Maurice, and especially Brooklyn and Kimberly. I did love his scene with Billy Miller, because it… Read more »

Here’s something to think about GH fans…the oldest male contract character (not actor) age-wise on GH is likely Julian or Sonny with Sonny being the longest male character/actor consistently on contract (since 1993) from the 90’s – I guess you could count Jason and Julian as characters from the 80’s, but obviously not same actors who are still relatively new. Sonny would be followed by Nicholas (TC off an on) from 1996. Sure, there are others who are recurring – Scotty (off and on since 1977) and Mac (1991) are still around but rarely seen with even less screen time… Read more »

The character of Robin should have been recast or killed long time ago if Kimberly didn’t want to stay on the showt. That way Jason would have had better story and Brooklyn would still be on the show. Quite often I am sad when an actor chooses to leave but is just that, their choice. And sometimes the character needs to still be on the show. In this case the part should be recast and, in my opinion, the GH casting director does a great job. I quit watching Y&R when Billy Milller and Michael Muney left and really have… Read more »

Well at least they had the decency to let these characters ride off in the sunset together as a family– leaving the door open for future returns. If this was another soap, the dark one, then they would of all died in a plane crash or if Ron was still writing it, I’m sure masked men would have barged into the wedding and whisked little Emma away, so Robin and Patrick had to leave town to search for their missing kid. Sometimes sweet and simple works the best, so kudos to GH for being brave enough to usher them off… Read more »

Best episode I’ve seen since the last time the Scorpios were front-and-center, two years ago! The only thing holding me to GH now is Tristan is coming back as Robert soon. I love the Jones family too, but where is Nathan?! I get the feeling a Maxie/Dillon pairing is in the works, and I cannot watch that. Can’t watch Jasam, not after Jake has been so much in love with Elizabeth this past year! I WAS interested in seeing Jason reconnect with Sam UNTIL Liason won me over.

Hearing that Robert and Felicia were under utilized seems disrespectful so km not sure I’m raging to see the episode anymore. I’d like to see Robert and Anna have a real conversation about their past and what happened when they dissapeared.

Melissa
Guest
Melissa

Agreed. I kept waiting for those meaningful conversations to happen between Anna and Robert; and for Felicia to comfort Mac as he had to say goodbye to Robin – again. For that matter I was expecting a nice exchange between Robert and Mac. We got none of it. Just weird jumps to other stories that jolted us out of the wedding scenes.

And btw, how amateur hour was it that the cast had to pull the folding chairs out of the way while a scene was playing! All I could hear was the scraping of chairs.

It was really good. They didnt have much time but this exit was done so much better than Luke’s.

Now lets restock the hospital with hunky doctors, sexy nurses and what about an x-ray tech or a nutritionist? They do work IN hospitals!

Melissa
Guest

I guess I’m one of the few that likes Franco, but mostly because of RH and mostly because they are morphing him into a good guy. Once they lost the rights to Todd Manning, GH should have brought back RH as an entirely new character. Instead they saddled him with a creepy character everyone hated and I think that is the #1 reason fans still can’t accept Franco, despite RH’s considerable charm, humor and skill as an actor.

Elizabeth
Guest
Elizabeth

I liked Todd Manning on GH. I despise Franco. RH could have been Jimmy Lee Holt’s son (thus a Quartermaine). He could have been a Cassadine. Heck, he even could have been a Jerome.

The fact that he was cast as Franco simply illustrates the poor business judgement of Frank Valentini and the over-the-top cartoon orientation, coupled with the over-the-top ego of the former writer.

I should add: Thank you to GH for giving the viewers what they wanted for Robin and Patrick. If Jason Thompson had to go, then this was the way to do it. I so appreciate that no one interrupted the ceremony; no one kidnapped Robin or anyone else before the ceremony; no one came in guns blazing to take out Sonny. A simple episode with love, family, friends, and joy. What a concept!

A rushed mess from start to finish.

No Robin/Robert scene. No good-byes between Emma and Cameron and Spencer. No Epiphany and Drake Jr. scene. No lines for Felicia.

But let’s be honest — would we really have wanted to see any of that if it had meant not having Sonny and Carly at the wedding stealing screen time from the Drakes and their loved ones on their final episode…?

It would have been worse not to have Sonny & Carly there, I think. Considering the history they all shared with Robin. It was nice to see Carly & Robin close that loose thread. Sorry it wasn’t your cup of tea, though. I understand the passion behind your sarcasm!

The only saving grace this episode was the flashbacks. THOSE brought a nostalgic tear to my eyes. Other than that, it couldnt have worked less for me. First, after all the buildup, devote the entire episode to the wedding! They could have included Ephiphany, Spencer, Cameron, Nicolas and the obgyn (cant remember her name) if they hadn’t incorporated other actors/storylines into the same show. Robert Scorpio. He barely spoke a line at the wedding let alone the entire few days he was back. They’ve completely neutered his personality. As for Felica, they might as well have put her picture on… Read more »

Hi Elm…lol….you never know…There’s a few possibilities concerning Little Jake…

He’s not really Little Jake…though I doubt that because there would probably be too much anger from the fans…

He was, and I agree with what you suggested, programmed to some degree…

He’s just psychologically effected and in need of therapy which should have been offered right away if for no other reason than to assess him…

Or, he’s miraculously okay..,but just acting out.

Dunno but I think there’s bound to be some trouble with him down rhe road…

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
