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



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.

Like Dorothy said in OZ..people come and go so quickly here…

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.

ditto, I feel the same, Samtrick definitely doesn’t sound pleasant to me. I was just thinking that, too.

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.
I mean, Holy Deflation Batman!

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’?

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!!!!

Sounds like a razor…’Try the new Samtrick for a close shave’…lol

I prefer;
Patrick and Sam ..
( name squishing is juvenile, really it is …. just look at how stupid squishing names looks/sounds lol ..

“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.

@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!!!!

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. 🙁

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 from bizarre dispensers!) Lastly, your observation about the laziness that pervades this country is spot on…and it only keeps getting worse, because it has become so profitable for those who participate!!! (That last comment of yours sounds like something my favorite character, Dr. O. would have said….I just love when she prefaces one of her cultural slams at us with “You Americans….” Perhaps because she is usually right!!!)

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 them because it will, hopefully, lead her back to her soul mate…Jason.

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 will be on her return. We’ll see.

I liked the idea of Sam & Patrick, but I didn’t like them together in Amsterdam. It was so boring. I like them when they hang & talk, but I didn’t feel the sex scenes, although they were quite decent for GH. They don’t specialize in love scenes. I just think she will have more passion w/Jason. I feel Patrick was into it more than she was. I don’t give her 48 hours until she starts researching Jake again. She’s obsessed.

1 more thing, Billy sweating, shaking, tearing up looking around his apartment & at the photo, the torture on his face, the fainting & hitting his head, the reflexes when he pulled a gun on Robin..altogether as a whole, Burton would not have been able to pull that off IMO. Billy all the way!!

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 for Sam and Patrick to MOVE on

have you seen Carly next to Billy Miller ? she looks gargantuan… nothing feminine going on here… just sniveling ONCE AGAIN about her sons… and moving in and around… you remind me of someone… we were once besties…. huh? commit a crime and head to pentonville… Carly…. thank goodness Bobbie is around to move you some

wouldn’t it be something… to flesh out some… and in equal measure… that Nikolas and “Jake” are brainwashed…. let them wreak havoc on PCPD…. WSB…LOL the FBI… CIA… whoever… just show us your manups…. these guys are HOT ! in the know their stuff… and riveting reel for the audience…. I LOVE em’

GH ! you do not… DO NOT, have to pit nuJake with either or…. let his memory come back with his Qurantermaine past

therein he can focus on humane reason… affect and effect… and find his way back to us…. as a person… ala! his career as a hospital doctor ????

altho: off track here… I loved seeing Lucas JONES , as a resident doctor doing his internship…. HOT HOT HOT…. I hope he accepts Michael Q offer to intern and manage the brownstone waterfront area for the free medical clinic…. OK bring Sabrina… as long as Brad is along for HIS ride

I have to 100% agree with one poster who said… for all the press Billy Miller has gotten… at the very minimum… not one fan seems dissastisfied…. Steve Burton who?

they need to get him interacting with Nina and Franco…. pronto…

I certertainly don’t see him as a recast… I love that he’s back on our screens period

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”…, 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…. ; )

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?

on the cover , this week…. ABC soaps… or whatever it’s called

splashed on the front page :

Will Carly and nuJason have sex

i’m like just NO

no no no

@Patrick….Make that a resounding NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!


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 it all!! I don’t hate SBurton but I didn’t care for his Jason near the end especially. I feel he may have been trying to do all of the amazing things Billy pulled off today as Jason: shaking, crying, sweating, fainting, the tortured face. Burton couldn’t have pulled that off IMO.

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 Danny was hers and that Franco switched the babies after Jason died— so how can there a picture of three of them together? Or did I misunderstood the sequence of events.

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 the baby for herself which eventually resulted in Sam getting the baby back on the roof of the hospital.

I think I recall that Sam later got the actual DNA results that proved Jason was Danny’s biological father, but Jason was no longer around to see them.

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 opened the box & saw only Sam’s ring.

Jason didn’t live long after they all moved in together. He didn’t know Danny was his before he died, but Robin found out before she left to go to the clinic to try her protocol on Jason. He did wake up and they escaped. He had his regular memory, but no voice. They stole a car and drove back to Port Charles. Robin’s big mouth told him at that time that Danny is his. Sam has no idea he found out. Of course that’s when he got run over & lost his memory. When he gets all of has memory back he will remember what Robin said about Danny.
My posts are sooo long!

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!

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 than a tough guy and his love scenes w/Kelly Monaco were sensational.

The scenes w/Miller were really good. Great idea. Nice acting. Ratings rise when Robin pops in folks. Just check past ratings over the years. LOL

I agree with you Dan BUT I really think Robin needs to do more than come back once in awhile.

hey Timmm..
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..
so, all she do is a quickie … lol

they should just let her go and have done with it .

KMc & BM jived well together but all I cared about was Sam & Patrick lol

I love Kim but here she is again, on for one day and gone. They need to recast the role. She is an important cog in the wheel of GH!

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 ..

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.

Hey, Shay.
I used to watch BOSTON LEGAL…loved that show. I vaguely seem to remember Jane L. in an episode.
Thanks for the info…I still have a lot to learn…LOL. later.

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.”

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 stint, I threw in the towel on my fandom. I simply couldn’t abide how he let himself slide into “character actor” territory when he could have remained more of a leading man type with just a bit of effort. It was too sad for me after so enjoying his handsome Hollywood heyday. (Speaking of Mass…..Did you know that is James’ home state? He grew up near and attended Andover Prep….his parents taught there, I think. They were both teachers. I could go on, but won’t. Needless to say, I know my Spader trivia…used to read his rare interviews with great interest….)

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.

I really miss Robin and had heard rumors that she might be replaced with Elizabeth Hendrickson from Y&R

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Photo: JPI

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

Share your congrats and well-wishes to Jon for 30 years as GH’s Dr. Kevin Collins via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Are You For or Against Kristina Being the Surrogate for TJ & Molly’s Baby Knowing the Storyline Implications Down the Road?

As many GH viewers have predicted, things have swung back around to Kristina (Kate Mansi) seemingly being the most viable option in Molly’s (Kristen Vaganos) mind to carry her and TJ’s (Tajh Bellow) baby as their surrogate.

If you recall, Kristina offered a few months back and was shut down by Molly, and then TJ, as the couple then went looking through agencies to find a surrogate to carry their baby to term. The surrogate they found, Andrea, told TJ she lost the baby in a miscarriage, which was confirmed by a doctor at Mercy Hospital, and she won’t go through trying to have a baby again. Leaving the couple devastated. But, is her story suspicious?

Last week on General Hospital, Molly was overwhelmed when having to look through a file to start the process of finding a surrogate and identifying the right candidate all over again and it brought her to tears. Kristina found her in the park, and that led the two to have a heart-to-heart conversation. While the two sisters have come to an agreement, now it comes to convincing TJ that this is the right move.


However, fans of the show can see how complex this will be for everyone down the line. If Kristina’s relationship with Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) moves further down the line, will she be so willing to give her sister the baby? Could there be an ugly court battle for the little one between two moms vs. TJ and Molly?  Will Kristina having their child, bring TJ and Kristina actually closer together, and cause rifts in Molly’s relationship with her man and her sister? What does the long-running soap opera have in store in the storyline by making Kristina the ultimate surrogate? Or, could Kristina lose the baby, only to find out that Andrea, the original surrogate has TJ and Molly’s child? So many possibilities.

Photo: ABC

Soap Opera Digest spoke to Kristen Vaganos on where Molly’s head is at with the situation. Vaganos shared, “I think there’s a little bit of desperation there, wanting to take a route that might be more trustworthy. (Surrogacy is) such a hard process to put trust and hope into because anything can happen. And Molly is a control freak! She wants to control as much as she can, so having a relative involved is, I think, comforting in a way.”

In terms of how Molly will re-approach TJ with Kristina being the prospective surrogate, Vaganos added, “Molly knows that it’s going to be an uphill battle, convincing him. Kristina’s track record with TJ is what it is. But it’s another leap of faith that Molly wants to take, and she just wants TJ to be on board with her. Plus, I think that TJ will really trust Molly’s opinion because Molly knows her better than anybody, and Molly would be the first person to doubt Kristina, to make sure to double-check her work. So if Molly says that she really feels strongly about this and thinks it’s the right decision, I think that’ll go a long way. I think TJ will take that to heart. But unless he’s on board with it, too, it’s a nonstarter.”

So, how do you see this playing out and what do you want to see? Are you in favor of Kristina being the surrogate for Molly and TJ’s baby? Are you for or against it, and what it could mean for long-term story implications? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
