GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Asks Sabrina To Let Patrick Go! Franco Shoves A Knife In Mama Heather!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Did Monday’s episode seem like a weird dream … and we will all wake up and find that the characters did not do what they just did?  We had Robin (Kimberly McCullough) asking Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) to let Patrick (Jason Thompson) go, Franco (Roger Howarth) shoving a knife in his crazy mother Heather (Robin Mattson), and for all intent and purposes killing her, and AJ (Sean Kanan) firing his attorney, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) and taking the stand in his own defense in the murder trial of Connie Falconeri!

Let’s begin with what may be a story point which could eventually seal the fate of who Patrick will choose to be with.  Robin comes to Sabrina to first, thank her for being there for Patrick and Emma during her absence!  However, Robin continues and tells Sabrina that Patrick is confused at what to do being the good man he is.  She wants Sabrina to let him go.  Robin comes out and says, “Sabrina, I know I have no right to ask you this. But I need you to help me get my husband back.”    When Sabrina says it’s Patrick’s decision’s, not hers,  Robin stands firm.  She  says Sabrina needs to make it easy for Patrick to let her go.  Robin tells Sabrina that thinking of being with her family again, while she was away against her own will, helped her get through those incredibly trying times.  She wants Sabrina to let Robin be with her family again.   What will happen if Patrick finds out that Robin went to Sabrina to ask her to give him a push in her direction?  It might not be such a wise move!

Meanwhile, is Franco still a murdering psychopath after all, just like his insane mother Heather Webber?  Well, from a gruesome scene on yesterday’s episode, when Heather comes loaded with a knife in her hand to chop Franco’s lady love Carly (Laura Wright) to bits in the shower, Franco intercedes!  He figures out his mother faked his job interview in order for Heather to be alone with Carly so she could kill her.  Franco turns the table and stabs his mother in the gut!  He then puts her body in  a housekeeping cart and is trying to push it into the elevator when Diane stumbles upon him!   Is Franco, the Franco we knew before, and the brain tumor not a by-product of his insanity?  Or, did he rid the earth, or think he did, of Heather once and for all to protect Carly?  And will Carly now become a freaky obsession for Franco …  or a true love?

So, what did you think of Robin’s chat with Sabrina?  Do you think Robin did the right thing?  What did you think of Franco “murdering” Heather?   Is Robin Mattson gone for good?   Or, do you think this whole episode will eventually reveal itself that it was a bad dream/nightmare, and none of this really happened? Just sayin’!  Weigh-in!

I really hope they did not kill off our favorite whack job ! I actually thought to myself after the show ended that maybe it was all just a bad dream !

I have to think this is some kind of dream or psychotic episode. You would think Franco needs *more* redemption, not another murder on his hands. I can’t see the point in making Franco Heather’s son just to kill off Heather. It was very gruesome — and then was it supposed to be funny with Diane in the hall? I’m always asking myself when this version of Franco is onscreen, “Is he a wacky character now?” “Is this supposed to be funny?” “Am I supposed to feel sorry for him?”

First RC utilizes a fast food approach to the Franco’s redemption, blaming all his sociopathic behavior on the all convenient brain tumor defense, while also rewriting history (we did see Franco, then played by, well Franco, admit he orchestrated the rape of Michael, his now lover’s son–sickening!). So now we’re back to thinking Franco is a sociopath again. This beyond being plot driven writing–it’s deplorable, puzzling writing. But Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care because I never invested any feeling into the Franco character as he was a result of James Franco slumming it up in the soap genre… Read more »

Exactly my sentiments about Robin vs. this unsubstantial, inconsequential, “all dressed up and nowhere to go”, plot point character that is Sabrina. For crying out loud, Robin is Anna Freakin’ Devane and Robert Scorpio’s daughter. She’s no whimpering, apologetic, shrinking volet. Oy!

I am disgusted with the writing of Patrick, Sabrina & Robin. Is there a grown up in the room? Is no one concerned about where and what had been going on for two years with Robin? Patrick goes to work the next day say what! Please quit all the advice from these other characters mind your own business and is there no one around with the guts to slap Felix to the ground.

Brian, that song always cracked me up. Beth, you’re spot on here. Robin is her mother’s daughter and Anna would never have taken that approach with any of her men.

@Harry: “…The Robin whom we have come to know would NEVER have asked the simpering, insipid, little Sparkle Pony to give up” @BethCP: “…For crying out loud, Robin is Anna Freakin’ Devane and Robert Scorpio’s daughter.” Loud echo: dumbfounded… that the story is steering this way still… no conversations with the two that matter…. Patrick and Robin. as I posted… writing and EP – production come and go… along with actors but…. this is thee time… I’m really watching the fallout and progression… of said story… that – RATINGS wise… is bigger than the 50th… and everything else this past… Read more »

Well done, Patrick. I thought this would be a no game changer, Robin’s return. I am as shocked as Robin was.
Patrick (not you) has changed since Felix and Sparkle Pony started swirling around him. He acts as though everyone else is supposed to be the boss of him. So not only has Robin’s character changed, Patrick’s has as well. These are not the two people we have come to know and love.

Wow, so well said, all of you! “Jimmy crack corn and I don’t care.”…that was funny! I too am very upset at what the writers have done so far with the Robin and Patrick reunion. They built up the suspense and anticipation so wonderfully, only to drop the ball immediately after! Yes…he sees Robin for the first time, realizing his real wife who he loves with his whole heart & soul is actually alive, their initial scenes with Emma running to her Mom right before Lucy pronounced he and Sabrina married, and the scenes between Patrick and Robin when they… Read more »

Ah, thank you for the compliment, I really appreciate that. I love writing, and I love GH!! This is the first time I actually posted a comment because I felt so compelled, especially since Patrick found out that Robin was alive, and feeling disappointed that the writers appear to be focusing this storyline around Sabrina, and not around what this has ALL been about (the Patrick and Robin love story saga, continued).

Better not have killed off Heather. Robin is one of the best actresses that show has and they would be biting their own asses if the got rid of her.

I doubt Heather is gone–she keeps escaping from the psych ward and she will keep rising from the dead. She’s like a psychotic Durracell Bunny.

Just as i started to accept RH as Franco, he stabbed Heather when he didnt have to…thats no way to redeem him. Hope ABC wins lawsuit against PP, regains control of OLTL and change him back to Todd! Robin shouldve confronted Sabrina and said ‘Patrick is still my husband and Emma will always be my daughter…they’re my family and i want them back! Im not trying to be mean or hurtful but you need to do the right thing and step back and let them go…i want my life back and they are it!!!

Very good point. And don’t forget, she wasn’t fired after it came to be known that she’d broken about every law imaginable when she ‘faked’ AJ’s death back in the day and falsified death records. So, why would she have been fired over this?

this isn’t scoring any points for the cute…. ok they have screen presence.. but… is seriously, as a couple… lacking… any story…. Carly and Franco.

he can’t just off “his” mother… just because… it’s doing nothing to further along… what are they suppposed to be about? I don’t get it yet… this rebirth of – oh god… another round of Roger/Todd/Franco….. and dim bulbing it for what seems like eons… now.. Carly

It was a weird episode, for sure. I guess I’ve given Robin the benefit of the doubt because she’s been held prisoner and basically tortured by the likes of Obrecht, Faison and Jerry Jax for two years! Of course, she’s not going to immediately be the same person she used to be. I’d like her and Patrick to reunite, but for God’s sake, first I’d like him to just show a little interest in the plight his wife and the mother of his child has gone through for the past two years. I never saw a whole lot in his… Read more »

Heather better not be dead.

I want the show to find some way to redeem the character, put Robin Mattson on contract and just have Heather be evil, not necessarily deranged. Robin Mattson has been amazing since Heather returned last year.

I’ve never watched this show until, I had seen Robin the lab and the nurses ball, ever since then I was hooked. I dont what the writers are thinking, but the character of Robin is what drew me and a whole new crowd to watch this show and Ive never been hooked to soapies till now. For goodness sake I even ordered the soap channel cause I work in the day time. But enough with Sabrina, we the crew would love Robin and Patrick to get back together. Sabrina was a phase. We are not into Sabrina and Patrick. Its… Read more »

I had stop watching the show since Robin left in 2012, I’ve watched her when she came back to GH in 2005, just cause I grew up watching her on the show…but I’ve always love Patrick and Robin together, their love comes so naturally on screen, I love it…I will also stop watching the show if they don’t end up together. ..

Franco stabbed his mother? Yeah, this is what turns me off to GH. Michael F has done such a great job of promoting GH’s 50th and they’ve done a great job paying homage to its history – but there’s just too much killing on this show. I keep trying but I just cant.

Franco should have been fried by the corrections authority months ago. I feel bad that Roger Howarth has to play this crap. It’s one of the non-entertaining parts of an otherwise very good show.

I LOVE FRANCO!
He never bores me and always has a twist..
RH was made to play Franco, no other could pull it off..
RH is awesome! I love RC’s twists turns and the shockers..
I hope Franco is a killer I hope he is a Priest ,as long as RH plays the character I’m happy!!
RH is an outstanding actor!!
Franco is an exciting character!!!!!!

I figure Heather staged that whole thing… trick knife, fake blood, playing possum while he dumped her body around… she’ll be back soon by the looks of that moving dirt and hand out of the dirt… same as in the old “Carrie” movie… but totally expected this time around!

How could you have Robin practically begging Patrick to come back to her, she’s the one who was kidnapped and lost 2 years of her life. On the day that Patrick was to marry sabrina, he went to the hospital lab to make sure no one could have seen Robin, but now he can’t decide whether he wants to be with Robin or sabrina!? Give me a break. Robin and Patrick BELONG TOGETHER. I’ve been a long time fan of General Hospital, but I’m starting to have second thoughts. If I were Robin, and I had gone through ALL that… Read more »

I completely agree. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I mean, I can understand Patrick being in shock, but he’s been looking for Robin and waiting for her to come back all this time. Now that she’s back, he can’t decide between her and Sabrina?!?!? Give me a break. The Patrick/Sabrina thing never really worked. They have terrible chemistry. I think we all put up with it because we were waiting for Robin to return and put an end to the foolishness.

I am truly disgusted at the writing quality right now. I was loving the writing during the Todd and John McBain period, but it has taken a blatantly obvious turn for the worst. There’s nothing worse than writers who come in and completely butcher a character’s personality. Words can’t even express the horribly inauthentic script they’ve given Kimberly (Robin). Having her go to Sabrina and practically force her to let Patrick go? They seem to be purposely positioning Robin as the loser in this. It’s such a huge letdown so early on in this temporary storyline. Everything about it rings… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
