GENERAL HOSPITAL: Patrick and Sabrina Say Goodbye!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

On yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital following the funeral for baby Gabriel, Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) said a heartfelt goodbye for now.  Sabrina as expected is heading back to San Juan to get some perspective and to have some space from being in her apartment, and in Port Charles, a sad reminder of the death of her son.

Sabrina’s exit began to be crafted for Teresa Castillo’s maternity leave, and as fans know, the actress recently gave birth in real-life to her little girl, Victoria.

For many GH fans with Robin and now Sabrina off the canvas  for now, this paves the way for what many hope will open up story possibilities for Lead Actor Daytime Emmy nominee, Jason Thompson.

As has been teased, Patrick will join forces with Sam (Kelly Monaco) to try to find the culprit of who caused the car accident that put Sabrina into premature labor which resulted in the death of Gabriel.

After the jump, watch Patrick and Sabrina’s goodbye scene!   Then weigh-in … what are your thoughts on the departure scenes?  What do you hope will happen next for Patrick?

Well, it opens doors for Briit, Liz, Sam, Olivia, but its Sam for the pairing, imo.

I believe Patrick and Sam(who in a way resembles Robin) will become an item once Nina…who isnt so goody goody as she pretends…will find a way to break up Silas and Sam!

I think Patrick has chemistry with both Sam and Lizzy. I can go for either pairing.
With Duke fawning all over Sonny and with his choosing Sonny over Anna, I think the next superbromance couple should be Duke and Sonny. Remember Jason and Sonny of Brokeback Mountain? Jason just couldn’t quit Sonny.

Whatever Patrick ends up doing next, I hope his tear ducts are allowed to dry up for the next few months. The actor is probably the prettiest male crier on tv. But, he & we need a break from his constant misery.

I really like Patrick and Sabrina together, more so than Patrick and Robin at this point. Well… maybe that’s because Robin keeps leaving, lol. You can’t recast Robin. You CAN, however, recast Jason in my eyes. But Robin IS Kimberly McCullough. You ask what’s next for Patrick. I see a potential adventure with Sam, and I sincerely hope beyond all hope that they don’t make Rafe the driver of that car that drove them off the road and led to the death of Baby Gabriel. I sincerely like Rafe, he’s a sweet kid, confused and mixed up, but now they… Read more »

I can deal with a recast for Robin. If the character is still part of the story and people want Patrick and Robin to be together then I expect the actor to be there. If not, recast and we will have to deal with it. And I can. For me, Patrick is the new Steve Hardy and I do not want him gone.

I want Patrick and Sabrina to be over. Hopefully this is it.

I like Sabrina as I’ve said on many posts…and I like Patrick and Sabrina together. I just don’t see how she’d go back to him after he left her for Robin.

As for Sam…I like the pairing, but she’d first have to get over her feelings for Silas, then her feelings for Jason if he comes back…and then the knowledge that Patrick KNEW Jason was alive and didn’t tell her. Seems like a long road…

She stalked Patrick until he gave in….Chemistry, what Chemistry? NEVER got the pairing. Jason/Patrick deserved a better pairing/storyline than with the ugly duckling retread story. Sabrina doesn’t deserve to be in a central romantic storyline.

You have put into words what I have been thinking and feeling for so long. My fondest wish is the actress falls in love with motherhood and decides her child’s formative years are more important that her job. We can now finally relish in the wonderful and underused talents of Jason Thompson. Lets explore who he is and what he is made of. Given the right material this story could be one for the record books. But for now Champagne has been popped and glasses raised in a thank heavens this nightmare is over alas temporarily unless my fondest wish… Read more »

My fondest wish is the that “Sappy Express” departs and never comes up, It is not needed or by the majority wanted. Patrick’s Caboose is fine without her.

I would love to see a battle for the COS position between Fräulein Obrecht and him now that would be must watch TV. enough with the crying and moping time to step it up.

Oh the burden of being the lone wolf. Sigh…Dearest Shay and Shay fans… 😉 I soooooooooo disagree with your glee! Sabrina adds warmth, humanity, innocence and a refreshing “niceness” that so many of you seem to detest. What does that say about us as people? LOL! We love the gangstas, bed-hoppers, cheaters, manipulators…but along comes an actual sincere human being and it’s a massacre on the poor girl’s character and sensibility. C’est dommage.

I’d like to see Patrick more involved with the hospital and bumping heads with Dr. O, especially with her daughter there to look on. I also want to see Patrick having scenes with Nina. I do think Patrick and Olivia might be a good match too. I can’t see Patrick involved romantically with Sam; they and their partners, Robin and Jason, have too much history together. I do think Patrick needs to distance himself from Robin. Since KMcC doesn’t want to play Robin on a consistent basis, why not free up Patrick totally and let him play a bit. I… Read more »

I don’t see him with Olivia at all. Though she’s only about 7 years older than him (and yes she was with Johnny) I don’t see them as peers or lovers. She also has a history of gangsters…Patrick is a doctor who is married to a brilliant researcher/doctor and his other serious involvements have been with nurses. Olivia is more street-wise, street savvy but not someone I see him having anything in common with. Same with Carly. Love her…but she’s just trouble on every level. As was Britt…and he dumped her for that. Patrick needs, good/kind/stable…as are both Robin and… Read more »

Agreed….quite frankly, I’m not sure who Olivia could be paired with at this point. She’s one tough cookie and doesn’t suffer fools gladly, so that really dwindles the dating pool prospects for her. You know, one really interesting possibility for Ms. Falconeri (in terms of a storyline) would be for her to serve as the surrogate mother for Dante and Lulu’s last precious shot for a bio-sib for Rocco!

It will be good to see Patrick in another storyline, especially with Sam…i nearly forgot what she does for a living…if she is a P.I. why didnt she help with the Connie murder case or does she only investigate once ever other year…lol…Meanwhile, does Nathan and Levi secretly have the hots for each other…in some scenes youd think they do by the way they look at each other but i know they arent going there…lol

Jim, I just want Patrick to stop crying. He cried when he told Sparkle Pony he loved her, he cried at the Disney on Ice show (Nurse’s Ball) he cried at his wedding to Sparkles, and he has been crying ever since. I am sure he is also crying at those AT&T commercials.
Call me an overly critical, cantankerous cynic, but to me, all that crying is a real buzz kill and extinguishes any chemistry which might have existed between these two.
Goodbye, Sparkle Pony, don’t let the door hit you in the tail.

I think he’s always crying because he was stuck in this mistake of a relationship story way too long…it might have worked the way you said and if the relationship developed much slower…Sabrina came on too fast in the storyline and her relationship with Patrick way too quick for it to even remotely work and be accepted by some…Sabrina shouldve been developed more slowly as a backburner character to give most viewers the chance to warm up to her…however, i still think this shouldve been Patrick and Liz’s storyline and Sabrina paired with someone else like Morgan or Micheal even… Read more »

A relapse may work, Patrick. But, I sense that Sam may be digging her own grave. The little visit she paid Nina? ( what nerve). Well, I do not think that sat too well with Silas. I also think that Silas’ feelings for Nina are simply dormant, not stagnant. Sooner or later, they will awaken. I just cannot imagine Michelle Stafford in the role of a wishy-washy, whatever-you-say submissive type. Her true self will eventually emerge. Sam is swimming in deep water. Nina will rise to the occasion, she is just patiently waiting– we shall see if Sam is ready… Read more »

Nina will blow up and loosen up and GH fans will lover her. Matt wasnt a popular character but I see your point and its a good one in regards to bringing in Billy Miller. Billy playing Jason would have a huge target on his chest. Dillon, he could pull that off because its been so long since the character has been on the show. Matt though, as long as they make him interesting, that would be a good character to play and it would give Patrick someone to bounce off of. Emma is all he has right now and… Read more »

@Patrick…thanks! LOL…Though I’m on the verge of hanging up a poster of Detective West on my wall…(okay, not really. but he is too good-looking!) I actually like Levi. If they’d tone down his rabbit eyes/mouth…are they coloring him pink??? I think he’s verrrrry easy on the eyes as well. And there’s some vulnerability there…unless they turn him to the dark side. Hope he’s not just a stepping stone to a Maxi/Nathan pairing…

There seems to be some truly nefarious undercurrents to his persona, but I cannot yet get a handle on from whom, what or whence they emanate….I wonder if he is being written as he goes…so much about him reads “winging it!” That being said, even though… Read more »

it’s interesting you ask the question of Nathan and Levi secretly having the hots for each other. I too, noted, well feel that the actor who plays Nathan actually has better chemistry with the actor who plays Levi than he does with Kristen (Maxie). And, I think that the actor who plays Levi, is very talented, he is a gem. I hope GH keeps him around.

I think you’re in the minority in that thought Jeremy. Seems from what I read Levi is not a very popular character. But I’d like to see him stick around too. I think he adds a bit of hip…albeit a guru/space cadet hipness to the show. They could expand on his background as well…maybe he too had some crisis in his past that led him on his spiritual journey…maybe he’s Richard Simmon’s son…THAT could certainly explain his break from reality!

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Jeremy, et al….I totally agree that Levi and Nathan push each others’ buttons, but I don’t envision it in a romantic way. I view these two as the embodiment of the current socio-political divide in the country. Nathan is the “red state” and Levi is the “blue state.” Just think about it: Nathan represents the traditional, masculine, meat-eating, red-blooded, John Wayne hero type of American male while Levi is the hippy-dippy, touchy-feely, Kumbaya-loving granola guy who wants to make love, not war (or so he says….) Never shall the twain meet…..

Nonna
Guest
Nonna

Yes, Shay–these two do bounce off each other. I believe that Nathan will probably be a major player and he needs a foil to boost his character. And in walks Levi. As you so eloquently described, these characters could not be more different– I wonder, Shay– have you read Moliere’s, “Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme”?– not quite as comedic, but there is a whisp of likeness with the characters. I do not sense any sexual tension between them, though. These boys both ooze he-man characteristics, albeit it would have been interesting to see love in bloom between them. They are just the… Read more »

In the real world Elizabeth and Patrick would make a good couple, but as much as I think they are a good match, with lots in common– as a soap couple that might be tad too normal. Usually on soaps couples are the opposite– good girl/bad boy combo, or hero and troublemaker duo— Personally since he so darn nice and understanding, and been walked over by all these women who loved him– I want Patrick to get bitter and become a bit of a jerk– be a playboy, gamble, have mid life crisis something— I know, I know he is… Read more »

Stupid face? Exactly what does that mean, I beg you? She is a darn good actress–watch her in action–watch her work–Nina, the demure, no longer exists. Do you notice her play-on-words?

Too bad it’s not a permanent goodbye, as Teresa Castillo will be back when her maternity leave ends… bummer. I never really liked the character of Sabrina, and truth be told, what’s the point of keeping her around? She doesn’t better the show, she’s not even close to being a core character, and there are plenty of other options for Patrick. Personally I think it’d be better for the show to write Sabrina out and have her stay out, it’s one less character to write story for.

Sabrina and Patrick are over, done, no longer..
It is more than obvious the there no longer will be a love connection with Patrick and Sabrina..
Sabrina will be written to be Carlos after her return..

Sabrina and Patrick will always have love for eachother, but RC has ended them..
That was obvious by the hug and cheek kiss good-bye..
That was a good bye of two madly in love people, but of friends ..

So true, Jimmy!

One day, a great gust of wind will suddenly carry off “Sister Sappy” and she will never be heard of again.

Loved their good-bye… so well played and so sad. Love or hate Sabrina you gotta admit that girl has been through a lot. First she puts herself out there to a guy she has no chance of getting and… she gets him. Then just when her dream is about to come true – his dead wife shows up. And now this, with the baby. So so sad. Can’t wait to Sabrina back when she returns from Puerto Rico. Hate to see that girl sad.

Funny, but Robin was a do-gooder, Laura too. Not to mention Emily. And let’s not forget dear Lila…though she certainly knew how to gently put Edward in his place.

Carlos’ love for Sabrina is so intense/so poignant…I think they could actually become a super couple if given the chance…

While glad that TeCa has had a safe and happy real life pregnancy and delivery, I am looking forward to Sabrina being gone from the canvas for the foreseesble future. The character is superfluous, annoying, and not necessary. Her portrayer is merely competent and now that RC has a shiny new toy named Nina/MS to play with, I’m going to guess that when she comes back, her presence could very well turn into an afterthought.

I would like to see Patrick (JT) with Elizabeth (EH) even though I think he has great chemistry with KS and KM also. Patrick works well with Sam, but I think of their pairing as more like brother/sister soul mates. Patrick is not her type given her character’s history, she is a bad girl (now with a good heart) a doting Mother who has soft spot for children in general as well as her siblings- but she still likes living on the edge and is most attracted to bad boys.

Hopefully Patrick is free of Sabrina forever. I love the chemistry he has with Elizabeth but it wouldn’t feel right for them to be together since Liz is friends with the much alive Robin. When Robin “died”, Patrick/Liz is where the s/l should have went. Sabrina has been a big waste of almost 2 yrs. She adds nothing to the canvas and should not come back as she plays no part in any of the other story lines. Case in point, with the exception of Felix, everyone at the funeral was there for Patrick. They only brought Juan back to… Read more »

And where were Felicia and Mac? They too are close to Patrick, and it’s Emma’s baby brother. Would have thought they’d have them there as well.

to be clear…Tiffany and Elizabeth, along with Felix and Juan….

I don’t get it, there’s nothing sexy or attractive about Patrick, but he seems to get the ladies to fall in love with him, oh well, that’s just my opinion.

I’m sure TC is a lovely person and I wish her all the best with her new baby. That said, Sabrina is a boring, unnecessary character and we don’t need her or her BFF Felix hogging up precious airtime on GH. If she MUST return, please limit her screen time and storyline. I don’t mind her with Carlos. In very small doses.

Exactly. She became the Poorly Written Newbie Who Ate the Show within a month of airing. And while I’m sure TC is a lovely person, she really needs to find another day job. She’s just no good at the dramatic, emotional scenes Ron Carlivati clearly wants his precious little Disney princess heroine to have.

Totally agree with you. As a person I am sure TC is a nice, with that said as Sabrina that character has sucked the life out of Patrick. She is not on the same footing as Jason Thompson and others, if she comes back she needs to stand on her own away from Patrick & TIIC need to allow her to stand of her own, that will be the true test for the actress. All of the propping that has taken place is unfair to all of the other castmates. She either sinks or swims on her own. Patrick needs… Read more »

Sabrina should have been introduced slowly from the start and helped Liz / Patrick plan the nurses ball instead of the other way around. Sabrina could have developed her crush on Patrick only for him to still be in love with Robin.

Shay
Guest

I’ve often thought that if the showrunners had simply made Sobby a more grounded, realistic and acceptable character, they would have had her develop an unrequited crush on Felix, since they hit it off so famously from Day One. Perhaps he could have kept his real preference a bit more private—maybe even felt somewhat conflicted since he obviously cared waay too much for his sidekick to the detriment of his personal life—and then made his big “reveal,” which would have created a whole different kind of drama, but a much more true-to-life one. It was all the Disney-inspired, fantasy-based bunk… Read more »

Ooo la la Shay! I could not disagree with you more on this post either! First, Sob…I mean Sabrina 😉 is one of the only grounded, realistic characters. She’s not a Carly who slept then stole her mom’s husband, or Olivia, who has visions, a scheming, lying, vindictive Tracy…a baby-stealing Brit, a woman who sleeps with and falls in love with her ex-husband/fiance’s brother…a crazed, psychopath Helena…need I say more? My point is I LOVE all the aforementioned characters, but it’s certainly not for their grounded ways or realism. Sabrina was just a young woman with a very real crush.… Read more »

rebecca1,,,Lucky Spencer, a serial cheater had no problem having an affair behind Liz’s back with Sarah and Maxie, and he slept with Sam out of spite, came home and proceeded to throw it in his wife’s face.

I don’t dislike Sabrina but I just never got behind her story and I wanted more for Patrick. I love Kimberly but if she has not interest in coming back I want them to recast Robin. It wouldn’t be as rewarding but the way they had her leave the last time was the worst. The Robin that I love would never leave her daughter! It actually makes it hard for me to watch the show now and Patrick’s story. I don’t want him with Sabrina, I want him to find happiness with someone else. If not Robin, then Liz or… Read more »

Not a fan of Levi either. Always felt he had a hidden agenda. I think he’s after Felecia’s Aztec jewelry. He was reading a book about her heritage when Mac stopped over. Coincidence??

Robin is like a soap opera boomerang – you throw her off the canvas and she keeps coming back. How can you develop a story with inconsistency? Patrick and Sabrina are great together but I think that the shy ugly girl gets quarterback story-line has played out. Jason Thompson is the most deserving to get the Daytime Emmy and I pick him to win. But I think the Academy may go for one of the other nominees. Ugh!

Levi is a cool one. And, wily. He put the wheels in motion by snitching on Nathan to ease his manipulation of the judge and particularly Maxie. So now, he is the hero. I have known many snakes as he in my lifetime. GH is making discerning storyline plots too easy .
I agree with you, Charles. How tiring! Sam and Silas are also really becoming a bore. Insipid as all heck–

You always manage to make my day, Shay. Your writing, whether I agree or not, is such an entertaining read, I gush with pleasure. I may not have commented on it before ( I had Alida for that), but I did read every single one of your posts– always with a chuckle and a whoop. What a great idea! Olivia, whom I am yet to place in the right spot on this soap ( am I making sense?), is still in her child-bearing years, and could very well carry Dante’s and Lulu’s baby. Wow, that was a true run-on sentence.… Read more »

How right you are. I left Italy at the age of five. I visit every year and each time something else is taken away from the town I once cherished. Yet, I faithfully return.

Hi Nonna…Shay has directed me your way. Say hi to Fas for me! 😉

I agree with your post and wrote something similar regarding Carly and particularly Todd…errrr…Franco. He’s being wasted…and in so doing being reduced to infantile standards. I’m afraid if he speaks up about the hideous caricature they’ve made him into he’ll be forced to take Sean Kanan’s exit route.

Hi Rebecca. It truly is a waste–to have reduced such a great actor as he to such low standards. I miss Todd, scar and all (lol, Shay)
Alide ( FAS ) wants to save the world one day and cure babies of diseases. Her aspirations are Herculean and seemingly insurmountable. But, her head is firmly set on her shapely shoulders and she will do what she has set out to do. I always relay what is current on the soaps, time permitting.
She is still determined to meet Mr. Fairman, — silly girl–knowing her she will !

Rebecca, as you can see, FAS are my daughter’s initials (Alida’s mother). Both my granddaughter and I use my daughter’s iPad. I simply forgot to change the name. That is the reason it is posted as FAS. I am sure it will happen again. Sorry,

You must be so confused, Rebacca. I previously answered your post as FAS . I am visiting my daughter and using her iPad as Alida did as well. I never carry mine.
I do agree that the writers are doing Roger a disservice by parading him as a clown. Unfortunately DePaiva is now on DOOL. It would have been a treat for us if she could have been given a new identity and be Franco’s love interest. Carly and he just don’t jive for me.

Only caught a glimpse of it but it was verrrry interesting to watch the real Sean battle his demons…cocky, defensive and extremely well-spoken/intelligent. He was also very thin…in a good way.

Props to TC for being able to do this story being pregnant in real life herself but grateful that it is over and Sabrina has left the building for a while. While I was relieved for her role in Patrick’s life ridding him of the “Britch”, that relief ended long before the rush to the altar between Patrick and Sabrina. It all happened way too fast and that coupled with a propped relationship with no chemistry and knowing Robin was alive made it more difficult to bear.

I think there have been a few couples where we’ve suspected or knew that the presumed dead one was alive. Case in point…Jason. I think it’s safe to say that he is alive, yet there are still plenty of Silas/Sam fans. At some point we knew Nina was alive…and many of us were/are still rooting for Silas/Sam. So I’m not sure if knowing Robin was alive would be a compelling reason for people who are Sabrina fans…and we do exist! 😉 I don’t think any of the scenarios were in place during Robin’s exit…as in I think the writers felt… Read more »

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
