GENERAL HOSPITAL: Robin Pops Up As Jake's Conscience As Samtrick Hits The Sheets!

Courtesy/ABC

Kimberly McCullough (Robin) made a return to General Hospital on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama.  But this time, it wasn’t Robin in reality real time, or Robin MIA somewhere in “Paris” in the clutches of Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), but in the mind of Jason AKA Jake (Billy Miller)!

As Jake is doing the bidding for Helena as her “Soldier Boy” and is set to kill Sam (Kelly Monaco) … his wife his upstairs having sex in the bed they once shared for the first time with Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson!

After seeing a picture of Sam, Jason (an image of Steve Burton) and Danny altogether, Jake starts to have some memories, but can’t put his finger on them.  All of a sudden Robin is in the room with him!  But as she explains to the lost man, she is in his mind and not really there with him.   Robin clearly gives Jake some clues as to who he is, and his relationship to Sam and her little boy.  Jake explains that he has been programmed by Helena.  Robin tries her best to steer him in the right direction, before she vanishes.  Jake is caught off guard when Helena interrupts their  “conversation” and then tells him to kill both Sam and Patrick!

Meanwhile after making love, and making a pact to be open with each other if they need to talk about Robin or Jason, Patrick says sweetly to Sam: “We’re not blank slates, but that’s OK.  Jason and Robin made us who we are, and to be honest, I like this place where we are now.”   To which Sam replies, “Me, too.”

So, what did you think of Robin popping up to guide Jason AKA Jake?  Were you surprised or frustrated by it?  What did you think of Billy Miller’s emotional performance in the episode?  And, what did you think of the sex scenes of Samtrick? Glad they have taken their relationship to the next level?  Weigh-in below!

Nooooooooo!!! Not her. Go back to your “directing classes,” Kimberly McCullough. You know the ones you’ve been taking for the past 17 years.

17 years? ?

Yep. She left “General Hospital” at the end of 1998 to begin some directing classes at some esteemed directing academy.

And it’s now 2015 and she is still using that damned excuse. She better be one heck of a director if/when she graduates.

Nooooooo you are mistaken….Kimberly is a great actress, it’s the writer that sux.

Just to clarify Kimberly left in 1996 to go to college, took time off a few years later and came back to the show before leaving in 1999 and returning full-time in 2005. At some point she became interested in directing and left GH in 2012 to pursue it. She’s currently doing a directing fellowship with ABC.

Hate the writing, dislike Robin, the actress, whatever; but don’t mock someone for studying something they have a passion and talent for. She’s a good director, you should check out some of her work.

I don’t think she has vCard wanted to direct that long. She went to AFI for a while, has directed some shorts, and is now in the Disney program. Just directed some eousodes of one of the teen shows. I love having her back, they just are not writing her well

I hate smoosh names or whatever they are called and “Samtrick” has got to be the worst. It sounds like a hockey term or something.

I hate those squished names too..
Sounds like senile grownups talking like kindergarten kids in on the playground say neener neeres.. ahaa.
(grown ups talking like that is so not right) no adult should ever use those neener terms they are for preschool children, oh well lol

I mean no disrespect but I can’t help but think Sam would make a great sex surrogate.
I just hope Robin doesn’t decide to haunt Patrick’s conscience right as he hits the sheet with his sex surrogate.

Well, guys, anything with the word ‘Sam’ cheapens things for me. To me, “Samtrick” evokes images of Sam ‘turning tricks’…. Is that ok to say, or did I just commit a ‘my bad’?

Shay

Oh CeeCee, have at it! Although Ms. Morgan is alright by me, I understand that Sam is to you as Sappy and Grossalie (okay, and Alexis….) are to me. We all have those characters who serve as irksome inspirations for our catty comments. Nothing wrong with that!!!!

“The Samtrick”….sounds like an exotic bedroom maneuver. I suppose given their vast range of experience, if anyone could come up with something new and original, it would be Sam and Patrick!

We could call them Pam. Or not.

Shay
Guest

@rebecca1….I considered “Pamantha,” but decided it rather conjured up images of a feral creature who roams the Serengeti! Then, I also thought for a moment about mashing surnames: perhaps “Mordrake” or “Dragan?” However, I soon realized those combos sounded too akin to members of a Medieval cult! Soooo….I guess Sam and Patrick, it is!!!!

Domino
Guest

Rebecca1, as much as I detest the squish names (as I previously stated), YOUR suggestion makes the most sense especially in light of the fact that it is the shortest and, isn’t what this smooshing them together is supposed to be about? Too lazy to write out the whole name so we can say one word. “Pam” is short and sweet. I remember when there were rumors of Liz and Patrick getting together they were calling them “Piz.”

Notwithstanding, I hate those lazy names and how lazy this country has become. 🙁

Shay
Guest

Touche’, Domino!….I’ve never been a fan of those “shipper” names, either, although they do admittedly come in handy here at MFSoaps when referring to a couple….I only grudgingly accept them for the sake of expediency in certain situations, despite the fact they sound so juvenile,. Having said that, “Pam” may be short and sweet, but it also reminds me of that greasy cooking spray….ick! Not exactly a romantic connotation for one of GH’s hottest couples. (However, I shall concede it is better than “Piz”…..which is too too close to an unmentionable word….or those retro candies that are fed to us… Read more »

Robin has always befriended Jason and why shouldn’t she be in his subconscious to help him along the way. Billy Miller ‘s actions during the scenes were an emotional panorama. I have never been a fan of Sam and Patrick together but their sex scenes were pretty hot but as far as a lasting relationship for them I don’t think it will ever work. Sam is hiding the fact she is continuing her investigation but telling Patrick she is letting it go. But her driving need to find the answers isn’t something Patrick will be happy with when she finds… Read more »

Right dawnhaze, Connie talks to Sonny, Alan used to talk to AJ, and Robin has always been a smart (well, before the writers made her stupid & getting kidnapped every month), do-gooder (no insult intended). She is a moral person & a good person to be Jason’s conscious. I loved, loved, loved Billy Miller’s acting in those scenes and today’s with him taking Sam’s ring out of the box and his memories. Just great. I loved her scenes because I didn’t expect it. Poor Robin stuck in those scrubs for life! She didn’t look pregnant as some have guessed she… Read more »

we’ve all had the opportunity to watch nuJake w/all three of his leading ladies Liz, then Sam, then Carly I think it’s a clear winner…. if Ric wasn’t in the picture Liz by a long shot… stratosphere… even if she belongs with Ric… it’s like new… isn’t forced… raw steamy and love I think GH has a dilemma here…. Liz and Ric should not break up GH should thank it’s stars… they do have potential… in what to do withs… Sam and Patrick…. if they didn’t have alternatives… nuJake/Jason … Daniel is still his child… even if it’s better suited… Read more »

Two thoughts here, Patrick….First, magnificent appraisal of Carly! I thought CeeCee and I were the only ones who saw Ms. Jacks in this particular light, but you nailed her essence!!!! However, as for “Sappy”…..no, it’s NOT okay to bring her along to the clinic…let’s just leave her on the shelf or in the broom closet—wherever—as long as she remains off screen (or preferably, off canvas…….LOL!!!!) Brad is a definite thumbs-ups, though…. ; )

CeeCee

LOL, Patrick…we do agree on Carly’s carnal expanse, don’t we? Beautiful liner, the Titanic, she was!!!! However, if she didn’t crush tiny, little Sonny; chances are she won’t maim Jake either. Let’s hope she’s never given the chance.
But, oh! Wouldn’t Lizzie look great decorating Jake’s arm?

I WAS HAPPY TO SEE ROBIN IN JAKE’S MIND AND HAVING HER TO PUT HIM IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. LOOKS QUICTE INTERESTING. AS FOR JAKE, HELENA IS GIVING HIM A HARD TIME AND NOW HE SEEMS TO LET HER KNOW HIS FEELINGS AT THIS TIME. I HONESTLY LOVE BILL/ JAKE, AND JASON ALL ROLLED INTO TO WIN. SO HAPPY FOR BILLY, AND JUST LOVE LISTENIING AND WATCHING HIM EVERY SECOND THAT HIS ON.

I agree Mary Ditanna Pendrak, Billy is doing fantastic and he has actually only just got started on the drama. Very interested in this storyline. I never miss a scene. Robin was great and fun. Made sense. I noticed some whiners regarding his smiling and joking scenes (give me a break. Jason Morgan smiles!) are mostly silent right now. I guess if they don’t have anything to criticize from his last week of scenes. Maybe they insult the writing, but not the actor. No comments on his personality shift. He has gained a good amount of fans though. I love… Read more »

Im not a big Robin fan…im ok with her but not her returns and kidnapping exits…however, i thought this was a nice unexpected suprise…i guess Patrick didnt see her because he doesnt have a conscience…his mind is more on his other ‘C’ and he now has SAM to take care of that for him…lol

Maybe Robin was aware of what they were doing to Jason at the clinic, perhaps she added some counter messages in his brain in case Helena ever ordered him to do something she knew Jason wouldn’t want to do— seeing the picture might have triggered one of those messages and we saw it on scene as Jake seeing Robin. I thought it was a nice touch— but I have a question– I wasn’t watching when Jason (SB) was around, but I thought Jason didn’t know Danny was his son– I thought Elizabeth had Danny, and Sam only found out the… Read more »

Domino
Guest

The way I remember it, Mary SF, was that Jason accepted Danny as his son, even if he was not his biologically, in part because of Monica’s acceptance of him. And, yes. Elizabeth switched the results, but it was “Todd Manning” who switched baby Danny with Tea’s baby that died in childbirth. Todd was so racked with guilt over taking away her husband and couldn’t bare to see her lose anything else because of him that she put the baby in Tea’s arms even though he was thisclose to telling her the truth about her baby. Then Heather Webber wanted… Read more »

Thanks– had my time line confused– still think the picture of Danny is of a child too old be that age when Jason was alive, but it is a soap and GH so I guess that doesn’t matter LOL.

The best I remember Sam got the baby back, Jason moved them in to his home. & was going to raise Danny as his own. That why they have photo of them all together. That’s why Jake’s memory flash yesterday was of him telling Sam “welcome home”, “this is your home” and Sam saying “Hope is a powerful thing. I’m glad you had enough for the both of us.” I believe that’s when they got their wedding bands out of the box by her bed and pledged to never take them off again. Jake remembered that today. That’s why he… Read more »

No your post wasn’t too long, very informative- thanks, I was just beginning to watch GH when Jason was killed, but not every day, so I got the timeline scrambled, your post put everything in order for me. It made those flashbacks Jake had yesterday make sense to me now– not doubt the family will reunite in time for February sweeps– looking forward to it.

I was never a huge Robin fan, especially as of late with all her coming and going. But I liked the scenes between Robin and Jason, and I really loved Billy Miller in these scenes. He can truly play anything and everything, and it goes to show how Y&R really lost out on this talent (of which they have not reclaimed in either of their recasts, especially Burgess Jenkins) and how GH scored big time. Billy Miller is phenomenal and I can’t wait for the truth about who he really is to be revealed. Big time drama for February Sweeps!

Loved seeing her. Think its great for her to come back once in a while. It ties things together for Jason. And I really hate to hear negative comments like this first one here about an actor. Especially one who grew up on the show and dedicated a good amount of her life to GH. If you don’t like the character you are entitled to your opinion. But comments about an actor are really in poor taste Leo!

Laurie
Guest

Well I don’t really know a lot about KM, but she is directing projects. Many of the GH actors are working in her projects and they discuss all over twitter. So no doubt she is directing. She seems like a great person and I like Robin. I do think they should recast, not to be nasty. Just because I think she’s an important part of GH. We’ll see. My comment about SBurton not being able to pull of what BMiller did the past 2 days is just a comment on their acting styles. I prefer Burton as romantic lead more… Read more »

Kimberly/Robin can do nothing but come and go quickly..
she has a career directing and is no longer a soap actress, she put that behind her..

RC and FV should have left robin dead as she wanted..
she wanted to go out in bang and she did, she was done/out and wanted her death..
since she was kept alive coming and going, it has accomplished nothing but a lot of upset fans … bad move/ a mistake ..

Timmm
Guest

Thats a great point BUT Robin is a legacy character and, in the past, killing off a legend haunts the show and hurts the fans. Look no further than Alan, Emily, and A.J. They should have left her in the lab until she wanted to come back or recast with a new face since it could have been easily explained because of the explosion.

@Harry. LOL. …Little confused here….I know there’s an innuendo somewhere in there, Harry. You would not miss the chance to entertain us with your so-awaited-for sarcasm (which I love). Do you mean that Sam is a blow up doll? And, if so….who is deflating; the doll, Sam’s silicone twins, or Patrick?……oops. Again, is this a faux pas, on my part?….oh, well….LOL.

CeeCee….Believe it or not, there is an actual occupation featuring real live people under the title that Harry stated…it has nothing to do with those freaky “dolls.” And I only know this because there was an episode of Boston Legal that featured such a character…if memory serves, she was portrayed by the pre-Glee “Sue Sylvester” herself, Jane Lynch. And by the way, I agree with Harry….Sam would probably do very well in that field! She really does have a way with the opposite sex….and I say that with admiration.

We ALL still have a lot to learn, CeeCee, but thankfully, through the media we can do it vicariously….which is a very fortunate thing when you consider some of life’s more unsavory aspects!!! LOL. I was a Boston Legal fan because of James Spader….what an awesome actor!!!! Plus, he was an absolute preppy Adonis in his earlier years!!! Alas, I’ve finally abandoned him…I simply cannot bear to watch him now that he has sunk into that disturbing middle-aged creepiness on “The Blacklist.”

CeeCee

CeeCee

Did you ever see the movie WHITE PALACE? My mother fell for Spader after watching that movie. He was hot, albeit he did let himself go.
I watched BOSTON LEGAL because of the great camaraderie and rapport among the players. I was never a fan of William Shatner, but, he was fascinating as Denny Crane….he nailed the role. Plus, I went to school in Cambridge, Mass., and I found the concept of a show within the Boston environs appealing, albeit I knew the episodes were filmed in California. …sorry, got a little carried away. LOL.

Oh yes, CeeCee, I saw “White Palace” more than once, although it was certainly not a favorite of mine….Susan Sarandon spoiled it for me…I’ve never cared for her. (She’s another one like Alexis who has to constantly flaunt her cleavage…LOL.) I actually made it a point to see as many of Spader’s movies as possible, and there were quite a few!!!! The man worked in a lot of films, even if they weren’t all big budget. In addition to loving his patrician pretty boy “look,” I found him to be just so versatile and talented. However, after his lengthy BL… Read more »

As much as I love Kimberly as Robin, I think the role should be recast because she is an important character in the storytelling. Emma needs her mom and Anna needs her only daughter and Robin can help Jake/Jason free himself from Helena’s control. Anna and Robin should get rid of Helena and straighten up Nikolas. And Patrick can romp with his little Boo thing all he wants.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
