Hard to believe, but Kimberly McCullough’s return to General Hospital is coming to an end, and with that, fans of Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake are trying to put the pieces together to figure out how she will leave the canvas, especially because she just was reunited with her beloved husband, Patrick!  No matter how she leaves Port Charles, Robin’s return was one of the most dramatic journey’s ever witnessed in the soap genre, which kept viewers glued to their set to see when on earth she would return to those she loves!

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with McCullough at the ABC TCA (Television Critics Association) Cocktail Party this past weekend, which was our first opportunity in awhile to talk to the beloved actress about what she thought of some of the emotional story beats that played out on-air!  And of course to find out: is she ready to walk away from GH again when she wraps very shortly?

During our conversation, a candid Kimberly revealed that with her real-life father’s passing during her return to GH, there were some pretty difficult tape days as well, but with the love and support of her co-stars and more, she was able to continue to deliver one of the most heartfelt performances of the past year.  For fans who watched all the emotional re-connections of Robin’s, we think you will learn some interesting nuggets and behind the scenes bits you may have not known before! Here’s our chat with Kimberly!

Robin’s return was filled with so many story points on her journey to get home that viewers were taken on a roller-coaster ride!  What did you think of how it all played out, where Robin met up with each key person in her life separately?  It certainly delivered emotional reunion after emotional reunion.

KIMBERLY: I think that was very smart, because it gave each character a chance to reunite, instead of all at once.  I liked it and thought it was great.

One of the most memorable moments was the scene in the church were Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) sees Robin and runs into her arms!  Do you recall doing that scene … and what you thought of it?

KIMBERLY: What I remember, to be completely honest, is being so proud of Brooklyn.  That was a moment that I felt proud.  It was like a generational thing, that only soaps can do.  Finola was there for me when I was a kid, teaching me and making me feel safe, and now I was just trying to do that with Brooklyn.  It was a really cool moment.  I think it was easy for both of us to do that scene.  I think we bonded.  I am so proud of her.

The line Robin says to Emma is “Mommy’s here!”  And it was one of the most poignant moments in the entire story.

KIMBERLY:  That wasn’t written that way.  It just came out that way.  Personally, I want a daughter so badly.  I want a kid, and so that is what came out of me and my fantasy of having a little girl, and to be able to comfort and make sure everything is OK.  It was a very personal moment and satisfying.

After the wedding shocker where Robin see Patrick again, and Sabrina is devastated in her wedding dress, Robin tells him to go talk to her, hoping that he told Sabrina, that now that Robin’s back, it’s over between them, but he didn’t do that. When he comes back to talk to Robin, she realizes she can’t go home with him, after she worked for two years to get back to the man she loves.   I re-watched those scenes and I thought it was some of your strongest work … you just felt so badly for Robin!  What did you think of that scene?

Courtesy/ABC

KIMBERLY:   I think that I really committed to the scene.  I loved the way that they wrote it!  I was impressed and surprised.  They did not pick the typical, “I am going to go home with you, anyway.”  I knew for them to get to that moment of “no”, there had to be a moment of “Oh, my God.  I can’t believe what was happening.”   I have had moments in my life as well, where it’s been like I feel I am watching a movie.  For instance, a situation where you’re talking to me, but what you’re saying to me is so devastating. And then, everything slows down.  That is what I remember looking at Jason Thompson (Patrick) and his voice sounded like “Waaa-Waaa” (Laughs).   It’s a moment as it was for Robin, where everything slows down and you think, “This is not my life!  This is not happening.”

And as for Jason Thompson, what a performance he gave when he sees his believed-to-be-dead wife for the first time!

KIMBERLY:  Jason is great in everything.  I tried not to think about the pressure of the reunion scenes.   But the great thing is, we can always rely on our relationship off-screen, no matter what.  We know that we trust each other, and it’s never a competition.  It’s never, ever been about, “I am going to be great in this scene”.  We are there for each other, whatever the expectation are, and this is about us always being there for each other in that scene.

You have built this very unique connection with Jason Thompson. And it’s nice to know that in this genre, people can work together and become very good friends.

Courtesy/Twitter

KIMBERLY:  It’s my way of giving back.  As you know, I had so many people teach me and make me feel comfortable growing up at GH.  They would come from a place of, “I don’t care that your seven years old. You are an equal.”  So when Jason came on to GH, I tried to make him feel like that.  Jason can be super shy, as a person.   So we were able to build something, because if I am working with an actor at the beginning that is cocky, they are not allowing themselves to trust me.  So he allowed himself to trust me, and I trusted him.  It was awesome and that is why we are such good friends now.

There was such expectation of the reunion scenes between Patrick and Robin.   I remember Jason saying to me, he just had to try and keep that out of his mind.  I can only imagine for you, the actress who made the choice to leave the show in the first place, there would have been added pressure for those scenes to be the best they can be.

KIMBERLY:  I always go back to, why is there expectation? Why is there pressure? Well, there is pressure because people love Robin and Patrick.  So, what is that love? That love is just support.   You need to keep going back to … the fans wanted it to be good, because they support us, and you just remember that.  Someone told me once, “Don’t be scared when you walk into an audition.”  When you walk into an audition, they want you to be what they are looking for in the role they are casting. They are not sitting there trying to discredit you.  They are going, “Please just be the part! We want to go home.”   I did not get that until I was on the other side of the camera.

Another exceptional scene was when Robin and Anna (Finola Hughes) saw each other again for the first time since her kidnapping at Wyndemere!

KIMBERLY:  I don’t know if you are aware of this, but we taped the first moment when Anna and Robin saw each other, and then we took two weeks off!  I’m not kidding. (Laughs).   So two weeks later, we do a direct pick-up where we see each other and then we run to each other’s arms.  Finola was great; she was like, “Seriously? Alright. Well, see you in two weeks.”  So on-air, you saw Robin look at Anna, and Anna look at Robin.  That it was “cut”.   Then two weeks later, we had to try to match that, and as an actor that is a very hard acting exercise.

That was another big pay-off moment for the audience. They wanted Anna to see Robin with her own eyes.  Was there any trepidation filming that long-awaited moment?

KIMBERLY:  Again, I would look at Finola, and tell myself,”OK. What do I know, right now?    I know Finola is always there for me.   I can always trust Finola.   She is going to pull it out, and Finola is going to be great.”  So, when she is great, it has the potential of making me great and so it’s fine.

I honestly don’t recall a time on GH, where Robin cried so much like through her ordeal, and rightfully so.  But in the past, sometimes Robin would keep her emotions more close to the vest.

Courtesy/ABC

KIMBERLY:  Well, as you know, my father died the second week I was back at GH.   I had a lot of tears to get rid of, and I had no time to go away, and hide, and grieve.  I have always felt control of my life as an actor, but this last time when I was on the show, I did not feel as in control at all.   If you have seen me cry more that is why.  It was very traumatic, but I had the support of people from GH.  Actually, not that many people knew about it.  I didn’t really talk about it, but they knew something was up.  Finola didn’t really say much of anything, but she would look at me, and go, “You’re good”  And by her doing that, it kept me strong during that time.  I love the people I work with, and even our executive producer Frank Valentini had a moment where he would go up to me and say, “You’re good … you’re cool.”

What did you think of the scene, when after Patrick came home to Robin and Emma, he asked Robin to have another baby with him?  I thought it was odd, and too soon to say something like that, after all the woman just got back to the Drake house from being held captive! (Laughs)

KIMBERLY:  I actually thought Patrick asking Robin to have another child with him was very sweet, and an anxious sort of things that boys do.  I think Patrick was so excited to have Robin back; he was like, “Let’s get this going!”  At the same time though, I really liked Robin’s response which was, “Hey, I just got back. I just want to be with my family.  Maybe we will have another child someday, but just not right now.”  It was a cool pseudo-real life conversation.

Courtesy/ABC

Speaking of babies, some fans are continuing to backlash the character of Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), and especially now with the pregnancy story, since she is having Patrick’s child!   And of course in true soapy fashion, Sabrina realizes she is pregnant two minutes after Robin and Patrick just found happiness again with each other!

KIMBERLY: Well, they won’t now.  When they see how I leave GH, they will be all about Sabrina.   I only have this week and next week left to tape, and then I am done.

How do you feel now that your time is wrapping up on GH?

KIMBERLY:  It feels like it went by really fast.  I am kind of sad, but I am excited because I just got my next directing shadowing project, which is on Grey’s Anatomy, so I will be right next door to GH!  I am really not going anywhere! (Laughs)

I assume when GH writes Robin off the canvas, they will leave it open for her to return?

Courtesy/Twitter

KIMBERLY:  I hope so.  It’s really up to the bosses, but I am always open to coming back. I am doing the Grey’s Anatomy assignment and then I am shooting my film in May.  I do have a lot going on in the next few months.

So GH fans, how do you think Robin will be written off the canvas?  Are you sad to know Kimberly’s time back on GH has come to end for now?

What did you think about Kimberly’s comments on some of the major reunion moments for Robin that we asked to her about in the interview? Were they some of your favorites too?  Let us know!

I wish you weren’t leaving GH. I love watching you have watched since you were little. But I understand why you are leaving and I am happy for you.
I watch Grey’s anatomy so I can’t wait to see you. And your movie I know will be great. Good luck. Maybe one day you will be back on GH.

I am 68 years old and that will tell you how long I have watched General Hospital. I am sorry to see her go and I have a feeling that the story line is going to put Patrick and Sabrina back together and the reason they have Robin leaving is frustrating and crazy. At this point I don’t really care to watch anything that has to do with Patrick and Robin. I wonder how long they will drag this out.

Watching GH since I was a kid now senior. Wish they could have Robin come and go not ended for good. Hate seeing Sabina with Patrick she seem not good
enough for him. Like to see Robin return when her assignment is finish.
If not my GH days will end its now longer worth watching. Sorry, Robin

GH needs to bring kimberly back permanently because she has been the since she was a child. I get tired of the producers of GH taking away the main characters. Keep them.

MaryAnn

I think Robin leaving GH is ridiculous. Why have her come back at all.
She is the FACE of GH, has practically been on the show her entire life.
When she exits this time, hopefully it will be for good.
She is perhaps my favorite character on GH, and honestly without her I don’t have same interest in the soap.
Robin, leaving her daughter, just awful………
Make a decision Robin, acting or directing, This story of coming and going is getting old now……..SORRY GH, but I am done with you. No wonder SOAPS are almost a thing of the past………

EllenMarie
EllenMarie

I’m with you MaryAnn. When she was told that Jason is alive and just knew they had a tentative date for Robin’s return. I guess not. And is Jason Thompson coming back to GH. I’m still mad at him for leaving under the auspices of more time with his family and “plop” he’s on the B&B or the Y&R in a very stupid kind of ignorant character. I would love to see him come back, but I’m still disappointed that he lied to us when he left.

I hate that she is leaving. It makes me sad for Emma and Dr. Drake. Are the writers going to do the obvious and have him rejoin Sabrina? I hope not. Will we see Robin bring Jason back.
I am so dedicated to this show.

I think it is totally unfair to have Robin walk off again like that. It makes you not like her as a person. To me it iscold. Who does that!!! You have little Emma, needing mommy very much and Patrick finding happiness from a really nice woman and then here she comes to claim him only to leave him again. Enough already. She should not be allowed back. Patrick and Sabrina needs to get together and She can go the other way. Let Sabrina be mommy to Emma. She’d make a much better one that Robin. Robin is to selfish and never seemed right for Patrick anyway.

Lisa Meyer
Lisa Meyer

I agree in many ways. The fact that Patrick and Emma were moving on and really very happy with Sabrina-just to have Robin come back and take that all away-then just leave them by choice… That is just a total mind screw for anyone! But a little girl… “Mommy was forced to be gone and we thought she was dead for two years. She swears she never stopped fighting to get back to me/us. But now she’s CHOOSING to ditch us??! I could have had Sabrina for a mommy! Someone who actually would stick around and choose me and daddy over some mostly dead people!!” Come on writers! And having a character like Sabrina try and keep Patrick from knowing he was going to be a father again? That particular character would NEVER have dreamt of doing such a thing, especially to a man she loved so much and believed to be such a great father. Moreover, she certainly wouldn’t have done that to Patrick after what Britt had pulled on him. Come on writers! Pay attention to your character designs! You can’t just suddenly have them be the opposite of what makes them be who they’ve been all along.

Beverly

I don’t like the way writers are doing the character of Robin, since she wasn’t coming back to stay I wish they would have just left the character as dead. Really, Patrick was standing at the door of the lab when it blew up and Robin at the door. I feel the writers are messing with our intelligence. I am so over all this with Helena and family dying and then coming back, again messing with our intelligence . If story line doesn’t change soon I am not watching anymore. I loved Patrick and Sabrina together.

i hope it makes sense, wish she could stay but not be seen, its to soon for the character to leave and have it make sense. this really sucks!

What she’s leaving already? When they said she signed a contract I thought that meant it would be at least a one year gig if not more. Now I just feel played– bringing her back just to jack up the ratings in November and then having her written off again. But since I started watching after she left the last time, I am not that invested in her character, but still, thought she would stick around longer than this.

Patrick

I kinda, backburnered… this: Scrubs

didn’t want to go their…. the love story… prior to this regime… new production… writing team (s)

didn’t have the same efffect….
my heart and mind… knew it wasn’t the same….

now, I have my answer…. short lived
so… no expectations… other than… the one lasting image…

Robin’ seeing her daughter again…. and vice versa… that will be my saving grace

i hope the writers… just leave well enough alone… and give Sabrina and Carlos a chance….

why shouldn’t Patrick be a playa….??? the resident bad boy…

he could certainly charm Elizabeth…

steer trouble for Silas and Sam

Britt certainly could have some residual… affect

so… it’s not lost

quell my sentiment…

still well up on the emotional level…

this was all the trappings of LOVE

Jason Thompson. U & Jason. make
a great pair &. in real life I would

I think she signed a recurring contract, not a permanent one. A recurring contract means she would get paid for her actual time on set as opposed to a straight salary, like Tony Geary, Nancy Grahn, etc. who get paid whether or not they are onscreen.

Mary SF
Mary SF

I maybe wrong but I thought recurring actors don’t have contracts, you are either on recurring status, where you get paid per show or contract, where you are salaried– not both. But then I reread Michael’s interview with her in the interview section of this site, and she said she signed an contract, but the length of which she could not comment on– so I guess they knew from the beginning she would only be short term— but you could be right she might have gotten some kind of deal which was like a recurring player but with some added perks given to contract players. But obviously they didn’t want people knowing she wouldn’t be on long, otherwise her return might not have gone over as well.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

I think anyone who appears on a soap has to sign some kind of agreement/contract. So, in that sense, everyone you see on GH has a contract. But, it’s their employment status that is different. IIRC, Bradford Anderson changed his status from permanent to recurring when his contract ended. “Recurring” status enabled him to still appear on GH & get paid, but not have that yearly commitment over his head that would tie him to the soap if he wanted to leave. Ultimately, he chose to leave.

It’s probably the same with McCullough. She did indeed sign a contract. But, her status is probably as a recurring player; not a permanent cast member.

Jenn

Glad she came back but I dread the exit. I have a feeling Robin’s character will be destroyed so people will accept Patrick and Sabrina.

Harry

I would say you’re right and it’s going to back fire big time. All Frank and Ron are doing is making people detest their Disney like creation more than ever. They need to stop trying so hard.

pat

Well we all know it is a soap opera and robin do not write the s/l so why would anyone be pissed at her. I still love robin. she left because she was threaten. But she should have tell her mother or Patrick someone what’s going on. I will not except Sabrina. Her and Carlos need to be together.

gjb

I agree 100%. and for that reason alone I say FU to GH and I refuse to give there sorry asses more ratings by watching them completely DESTROY Robin to pimp the annoying twit and the pairing of Patrick and the twit. what these idiot writers can’t seem to understand is that the twit and Patrick NEVER worked and the main reason for that is the actors don’t have the “it” chemistry. I love Jason and he’s pretty much great with everyone onscreen EXCEPT no offense to the actress who plays Sab but her and Jason don’t have the it factor and the fact that this stupid show felt the only way they could make that pairing work is by destroying a legendary character is a huge slap in the face to us fans of Robin, Scrubs and GH. Its completely uncalled for and ugghhhhhh I HATE GH now. HATE. I still can’t believe Kimberly came back for this sh*t. UGH

Gemma

Can’t believe you are still watching. I love Sabrina. Robin and Patrick just seem ‘so not into each other’ this time around, just my opinion!!!

Maureen l

I say why bother to come back. Disappointed that she is leaving so soon. I think it was a waste of time.

M,
M,

I feel the same way. She came, destroyed some more lives and now is leaving again. It’s been a very long time since we had seen some really happy couple in GH and I was hoping we would be able to see some smiles with Patrick and Sabrina’s marriage, but no luck. In addition to all those psychos and crazy people populating GH this past year, here comes no other but Robin and destroys the future of a very happy couple and family. I still am mad at her pointless show up at the show. Glad Kim is having a lot of success elsewhere, but Robin is unbearable any more in GH. I also think she came off as very selfish, cold, and demanding this time. It was not that Robin we were used to watching for years. Glad she is leaving. Good luck to her.

gjb
gjb

I can’t STAND the character of suckbrina and they have zero chemistry. the fact that this stupid show felt the only way to make that pairing work is to destroy a legendary character is beyond messed up. I will NEVER route for that character and patrick. NEVER. no matter how much they DESTROY Robin.

Harry
Harry

M. I understand what you’re saying and despite loving Robin since seeing her as the impish little 7 year old Robert discovers in his penthouse apartment, I agree with you. What you’re saying, what so many of us have been crying from the rafters is we want CHARACTER DRIVEN stories. We especially want it for our veteran actors. The writing for Robin has been completely out of character and as many others have said, they have sacrificed her character to the Sabrina gods.It’s not going to work.

kimmy
kimmy

I absolutely agree with you and she came back even more judgmental than ever like demanding Sabrina stay away from Patrick to me that was really low what she asked Sabrina to do

Natasha Jax
Natasha Jax

Agree with “M.” This was not the Robin we knew & have loved since we’ve watched her grow up on the show. As the story line goes, I would expect Robin to return with a slightly hardened personality and definitely some degree of PTSD. That said, I think the WORST thing the writers can do is re-pair Patrick & Sabrina. As far as chemistry goes, I’m sorry but theirs was a Code Blue … Total flat line. I’d rather see Patrick with Elizabeth.

Tom
Tom

That is on the writers since they knew her schedule and should have and could have written a better way for her to be gone for awhile and then she can come back. They do it for others on GH and since ratings went up with Robin’s return and continued with the reveal with Emma and Patrick and then continued to when Scrubs renewed their vows , you would think they would use their brains.

gjb

I agree 100%

If the writers are unable to come up with a creative good exit for Robin that doesn’t ruin the character they shouldn’t be writing for GH. Robin has been a great character on this show for years and they should respect the history & the character. Nothing will make me side with Sabrina because I just don’t like the character at all. She is childish and weak and has been propped more than any character I’ve ever seen. It’s sad to see Kim leave again but her directing should come first after giving a good part of her life off and on to this show and still willing to return in the future. Thanks for the memories Kim and thanks for the interview, enjoyed reading it!

vee

I just think the soap should not be written around an actors coming and going. She has other plans for future. Let her move forward and fill her dream. GH can survive without Robin altho i loved the character. Yes, Patrick chose the wrong one because he was supposed to be in love with sabrina enough to want to marry her and then he turns around with little angst to forget her and move on. Main point is: No one is so important that they should just come and go as they please and stories have to be written around their whelms. That is selfish! Its also selfih to me, if we refuse to accept that its time for a character to move on and grow and allow another character to develop. Just my opinion!

Mike

What the hell are you guys talking about? Kimberly left on her own accord, and returned because of the offer that they extended to her! I am glad that she is once again leaving on her on accord. Good luck K Mc. I truly can’t stand Robin, will not miss her at all. No offense K Mc. Reallly love Sabrina, a sweet breath of fresh air!

Glad Kim confirms that they make Robin look bad in her exit to prop Sabrina. Won’t work for this fan! Will probably just make me turn off GH

May quit watching now, frank & ron are good at destroying characters and having them do things that are not in character. Sabrina doesn’t do it for me! Good Luck Kimberly until we see you again on GH – will tune back in then!!

Tom

Right there with you. I won’t watch Robin destroyed and for a pet of the head writer. If a character doesn’t work that is on them and no writer should ruin a legacy character in this case Robin to garner sympathy for someone who doesn’t work. Tired of being forced into liking a character.

kimmy

actually she is leaving because of obrecht and because she sees that Patrick and Sabrina are meant to be and Patrick learns of the paternity of the baby when he and Sabrina are in hospital lock up because of liesl I hope robin leaves and never comes back

vee

what am i missing here? I thought robin was leaving because she has plans. Robin has grown. She has other dreams. Why are we blaming sabrina? Did I miss something? Robin said she has other plans and wants to fulfill them. She is going to do greys and she wants to produce.. whats wrong with that?

Dori

I cannot believe you are leaving again so soon. I loved it when you came back and that Patrick chose you as he should have. Emma has her mommie back. Now you are leaving. Patrick will be devastated and Emma too. Even if they make Robin look bad in her leaving, that will not make me like Patrick and Sabrina together. You are the only one for him. Guess I will be ff thru scenes of Patrick and Sabrina. Sorry but I don’t want anyone with Patrick but you. I will miss you so much. I have watched you since you came on. I wish you all the luck in what you do, but will miss you. Love you Kim.

Tom

ITA Dori!

kimmy ONLY one meant to be is Scrubs and thatis why Patrick chose his wife and soulmate, loveof his life Robin. as he told Sam, he knew it was ALWAYS Robin, there was no choice and told Sam, he felt sorry for Sabrina and don’t want ot hurt her.

pat

Me too.

Its hard to say exactly how she’ll leave…maybe she goes to some country suffering from some sort of epidemic and works on a cure? In any case im certain some fans wont accept any reason…but Kim seems to want to continue her directing career…her choice…however, she seems willing for return appearances…if some cant accept this, DONT WATCH!!!

angie

I think it sucks. They are going to decimate a 20 year character to prop some worthless pet. It has been this way since Sabrina showed up. If KMc thinks her exit will make me all about Sabrina she would be wrong. If they throw Robin under the bus to make me accept a character that doesn’t work I quit and I hope others do too.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

There have been characters on soaps ive disliked over the years but i can ignore them and continue to watch as long as the rest of the show holds my interest…the door will remain open for Robins return…

Angie, I won’t stop watching but if they pair Patrick with Sabrina I will have to ff thru all scenes of those two together. Sorry. To me she still is the “babysitter”. She just seems so young and immature. I liked her in the beginning and all was well with her being a babysitter because I knew eventually will be back. But now, I do not want them together. He can be a dad and not marry her. I know she will be going to do the research for Jason and that is how they are having her exit but I think they should keep Patrick alone for when she comes back. Don’t put us thru that again.

Seems they watched during her absence and now that she is leaving again, some wont watch..
That is too stupid to even make logical sense of ..

She/KMc will never be staying with GH for the long run, not now with her happily living her chosen career choice, directing.. ..
I think Robin should be killed off and stay dead so there will be no need to go through this again.. ..

this is too much…. for ALL the scrub fans

they had better just leave well enough alone… and let sleeping dogs lie

maybe, she’ll do like Maxie… a retreat… to find herself…

honestly, tho… I wonder what.. fans think…. yes, the writing wasn’t the same… but… can two years.. apart.. even as actors… screened that much apart… see my post above… I just wasn’t feeling these, two… this time around…

the chemistry… the first time around… was pure magical… what went wrong?

I knew in my mind… from the outset… so… I can let go… but… LOVE for real… is subliminal… out their… and capable…

heck… I love these two… plus Emm

Bonnie

totally agree. I am thinking they will find out the baby is Patricks and she will not be able to accept this and leave to do some aids research or something. I feel bad for Emma, and hope they just do not put Patrick back with Sabrina. I hope she falls in love with Carlos who is standing by her.

Patrick

at the very least….. and, i honestly, feel, as fans outcry, and bemoan, a story line… its wasted energy….

but, I hope the writers… respect how much Scrubs were loved… and give us that lasting impression that this couple did have that LOVE.

give us the respect and DO NOT Pair Patrick and Sabrina… PLEASE!

she’s good with Carlos….. I really do like them together.

and, lastly, as a gay man…. even, I’m tired of busybody Felix…. I so agree with Brad… he needs to get a life.

ditto: I feel bad for Emm

No Kimberly, you’re right on every point, but not when you say viewers will be rooting for Sabrina when Robin leaves. Here’s why–Ron somehow believes that for viewers to like Sabrina he must tear down Robin. Viewers don’t like Sabrina not because they’re Scrub fans or on Team Robin, we don’t care for the character because she has been rammed down our throats. Clearly, she is Ron and Frank’s creation and hence, Sparkle Pony is their pet. And I’m sorry, I am sure the actress who plays her is a fine person, but she just doesn’t have the acting chops to be front and center twenty four seven. She’s just not that good and anyone who knows anything about acting can attest to that fact. We’ve watched Robin grow up–watched her grieve her parents’ death, her first lovers’ death, deal with her HIV status and finally, watched her fight tooth and nail to come back to her family. Giving her an exit un worthy of her so we can root for Sabrina is not only a mistake, it will backfire big time. Viewers aren’t stupid and will resent being manipulated. Viewers deserve better, and so does Robin

Shay

Here, here, Harry! You have perfectly encapsulated the problem right there….our loathing of Sabzilla has NOTHING to do with the character of Robin, and everything to do with the role, storyline and poor acting of Sobby herself! Even if they had sent the Drakes riding off together into the sunset as one happy family and left the nurse in the Port Charles dust, we still wouldn’t want to put up with her! Sadly, “Cartini” just refuses to get it…I don’t know if they are tragically thick or just so contemptuous of the loyal fan base who has tried every which way to communicate to them that their “prized filly” is an unwanted dud. It’s as if it simply won’t compute…..delusional, completely delusional they are

You people are living in the past. Robin and Patrick no longer have the chemistry they once had. The writers don’t have to make us root for Patrick and Sabrina, there are a lot of us already rooting for them. From what I am seeing, probably more of us (Patrick/Sabrina) than there are of you (Patrick/Robin). I think Kimberly thinks she is entitled to come back anytime and ruin the newer characters just because she is “Robin” and it is “her” home and not theirs. I think the fans have had enough of her. I have watched for thirty-five years. I for one am tired of Robin.

Gemma
Gemma

Really not blaming Kim for this one; she wanted them to kill her off the show, but really hating the way she came back, and now she is exiting again. Once again, good luck KMc. Did I say I love Sabrina, yep, that’s right, and gonna keep right on loving her no matter what anybody says, not so sure if I want her with Patrick now.

Shay

I have never asserted that “everyone” despises your “girl.” But I do believe that the vast majority of the viewing audience finds her to be totally insufferable…simply witness the feedback (not just here) but in many other soap forums. “Sobby’s” so-called appeal is limited to an extremely small “fringe” demographic, and that is not going to change, no matter how much her little fanclub tries to make it appear otherwise.

Sigh…where to begin? Yes, we knew her return was temporary. I guess I just conveniently forgot about that when I cheered on the Robin and Patrick reunion. I guess I tried to block it from my mind, but I can’t do that any longer after reading this! She’s leaving…again. (I don’t mean that sarcastically even though it sounds as though I do~!)

I am not a fan of the pairing of Patrick and Sabrina. I can’t stand those two together. (I need to stress that I’m referring to the characters and NOT the real life actors!) I was never a Sabrina fan. She seemed to be immature for him. (I’m not quite sure that is the correct word I want to use…but I can’t think of the right word) Quite honestly, I never expected to like the Sabrina character BUT that changed when Carlos rolled into town! I VERY much enjoy the Sabrina we get when she’s with Carlos. She speaks up for herself, she doesn’t give in to whatever he wants like she does with Patrick. I’d love to see that relationship develop romantically and give Patrick someone else after Robin is gone…and speaking of Robin, time to get back to her…
I can see Robin up and leaving Patrick for whatever reason…the baby, the marriage just isn’t working, he has lingering feelings for Sabrina, etc. but I CANNOT imagine any acceptable scenario of Robin leaving Emma. Perhaps that is what KM means when she said the fans will be rooting for Sabrina when Robin exits?

I do not understand why people are shocked she’s leaving so soon. When it was announced that KM was coming back and “signed a contract”…..and NO ONE from GH, ABC Daytime or Kimberly herself would comment on the length of the contract, you HAD to know it was for 6 months, or a tad longer to finish the story. I really became a #Patrina fan during her absence. I will stand by GH regardless of who is or isn’t on the show any more. #LoyalFan

Hi Harry – I read what KM said; “people are going to be all about Sabrina”. The writers had a 6 month window to tell a story, and honestly, I don’t think any story line, knowing “Robin” was staying for such a short time would have made SCRUBS fans happy, period. As I stated, I’ve come to like Patrina and find myself caring more about them then Scrubs. I have really enjoyed the journey Jason has taken us on these last almost 2 years as “Patrick” tried to recover from his wife’s “death”. Bottom line: FV and RC will never, ever, never please all the fans. It is impossible and honestly, the way people act, seems like a thankless job. Thanks for your reply Harry, we don’t have to agree, its ok, makes the world go round! Grace

I do not consider myself a GH fan anymore. I haven’t considered myself a GH fan since the 1990s ended. I literally watch this show for a few characters which are Robert, Robin and Brenda. So, I will watch Robin’s scenes and then move on from GH. I don’t think RC and FV have been some kind of saving grace to GH at all. I hate Sabrina, Felix, Brad, Kiki, Franco etc…I even hate Patrick without Robin, he is of no interest to me.

I do worry that Ron and Frank do not take the responsibility of Robin being an HIV+ character seriously enough and will concoct some exit that does not pay tribute to the incredible gift Robin knows life is and the fact that she treasures her child and being a mother more than anything. However, I can’t get angry at what I won’t see and I won’t see any of it.

I’m really upset about robins exiting:/ I think it’s messed up that they make her return, get all her fans excited to just have her leave within a month or so later . I’m scared to see how they make her leave ! I hope it’s not anything too out there. I also hope Patrick doesn’t end up back with Sabrina because that would just be redundant.

“Well, they won’t now. When they see how I leave GH, they will be all about Sabrina.”

Sorry Kimberly, but just no. As a Robin/Scrubs and in general GH fan I will never ever be all about Sabrina. The character is awful in every sense of the word. The more she gets propped by everyone, and I do mean everyone, the more I dislike her. Thanks for the heads up though. GH is already off the DVR.

That being said, good luck and kick some ass with your directing career. Spread your wings and fly girl. You are so much more than this current joke of a version of GH.

I saw Robin and Patrick as a big fail..
They have gone beyond their time, heyday, and are empty..

I personally do not feel that Robin should have been brought back, it just messed up too many things and they and she knew it would be a short stay..

This time around there was none of their old fire, their reuniting was lackluster ..

I give it an F ..

That F you’re giving Robin and Patrick should go to your beloved Frank and Ron. The reunion was a failure due to piss poor writing designed to prop up Sappy.

Perfectly stated…. KMc was selfish for coming back, she didn’t like all the attention the actress playing Sabrina was getting, and then when Teresa found out she was pg and the writers decided to include it, KMc was probably like ” I am out of here”. Only problem is not many people care anymore. KMc coming and going is ridiculous, Kill her off, NOW.

I like Sabrina and Patrick together. Robin and Patrick have become too boring and predictable. It mystifies me how people can actually say they “hate” someone just because they interfere with what they think the story line should be. You people that keep calling her the Disney Princess are being ridiculous. You don’t even know her but yet you call her names and put her down.

As a fan of KMC from childhood on its nice to hear she will get do what her passion is directing. I’ve been a fan of GH for more years than I like to count. I never really got Into the Scrubs pairing. Never really noticed Patrick until Robin was “dead” maybe because JT scenes were so heavy he got to spread his wings. I was anxious to see what TPAB would have Robin do when she came back. I guess I have to reserve judgement till the SL plays out. Not a big fan of the character Robin since the baby Michael SL but I have enjoyed watching KMC grow up and see what her career has lead her. I totally loved her reunion scenes with Emma, Anna, Robert, Duke and of course uncle Mac. Even with Nicholas. The play on history with Anna reunion scenes with Emma and Robin was heart wrenching . Some of the best in daytime ever IMO. Best of luck Kim and I’m sure will see u back on GH someday.

Lets just remember that this ending whatever it turns out to be isn’t Kim or Robin’s fault. RC is the writer afterall, if he really wanted to he wouldn’t write it so bad that fans would be pissed at Robin but he’s not shy about ruining one character to prop another. I think it will backfire and ratings will dip, I’ve heard several people already say they are done with Gh. They knew from day 1 Kim was short term so its not like RC didn’t have time to give her a good exit.

IA!. Patrick was having a baby with Britt a few months ago-and now with Sabrinella. It’s lazy writing. Robin should have returned to him and Emma the day at the Halloween party. And her and Patrick should have gotten together and/or broken up when she found out Sabrinella was pregnant. Or Patrick should have hooked up with Elizabeth when they went out to celebrate for his upcoming nauseating nuptials, and realizing afterwards his true feelings for Elizabeth who has always been there for him and Robin should take Emma and go back to Paris or move to Italy to be with Brenda and Jason (because he’s in witness protection there and he’s Brenda’s roommate).

I think it tried into TR exit.

It pretty clear that Patrick is almost too happy. I mean asking everyone if they want to have coffee together yesterday was just weird.

I wonder if he secertly upset Robin was back on the Island for weeks but did not have Nic tell him what was up and allow himself to almost marry Sarbrina and possible knock her up before he had to dump her.

Kimberly said long before she returned that when she returned it would be for a short time. I really worried, though I have loved her and Robin since she was a child, that this story would be in the end a big tease for fans. There is no way that Robin could be on the show for a short time and her leaving make sense. Though the first days of the story were great, since then we’re just at the hospital running into Sabrina all the time. From the interview it sounds like they will make us mad at Robin for leaving. I read somewhere else she leaves to help or find another loved one. ??? Will Robert go missing and she goes to find him? She’s not a PI. I see no possible way she can leave and the story be sensible, especially considering Emma. Much as I love Robin/Kimberly, I think she needs to be replaced, until such time she wants to return for at least long periods of time, though I wish her the very best.

I hope they kill her off and never bring her back. I am sick of her revolving door…she comes and goes as she pleases. When she first came back this time, she said she was BACK. This is not “back.,” this is a whim. They should have left her dead.

I think they should kill off Sabrina as her character is underdeveloped and I just don’t care whether she bit the apple and died or some other wicked stepmother killed her off. Maybe she should have a run in with Dr. Obrecht. They should have hurried up her return to her family and dissolved her relationship with Patrick. I honestly think he and Robin can still stay married. Why can’t he have an off screen wife that he visits from time to time and cheat on-if he needs to have a love scene, and just focus on his career and Emma if she stays or goes with her mom.

Please remember, Robin came back because the show was celebrating the show 50th year of the show…and most of the old character came back for that, i read also that kimberly was willing to extend her contract…and i will voice my opinion also i hat patrick with sabrina…..liz all the way.

Elle

Honestly, I don’t understand the positive implication from Kimberly how the fans will be all about Sabrina after Robin leaves. I started watching GH again less than two months ago and also some old clips from 2013 including the Nurses Ball. I find the Sabrina character to be one noted and propped. Her interactions with Patrick are awkward, almost like she’s intimidated by him and not as an equal.

That being said, I hope Robin’s exit stays true to how her character was portrayed/evolved on the show over the last 25+ years. It would be very difficult to accept to see anything remotely uncharacteristic especially for a legacy character.

RHONDA
RHONDA

Kimberly has ruined her “legacy character”. She knows coming back for this short time was not good for her “legacy character”. She just thinks she’s entitled. Tons of us are already rooting for Sabrina and will continue to do so. Robin and Patrick are boring and the past. Don’t blame the writers. Some of us had already moved on.

Elle
Elle

I am going to see how Robin’s exit all plays out and try to make a fair assessment. But as Kimberly implied, her fans and the fans of Scrubs will be p*ssed as she pointed out on another interview. Then yes I agree KMc is probably not happy with the way Robin’s storyline is be written out. Keep in mind, Frank and Ron are the ones who are in charge and not Kimberly and will write the story lines (good or bad) that they feel best suited for the show.

I would love to know why people like the Sabrina character. To me she brings nothing to the show and has zero chemistry with Patrick and the rest of the cast. If anything the writers should explore a Patrick/Liz coupling or bring in another actress that is engaging and can go toe to toe with JT/Patrick once Robin is off the canvas. JMO

Rocky

I feel we were cheated and lied to. All for the sake of ratings. Her return was a big build up, then a disappointment just to find out she’s leaving? Her fans (me) will miss her but don’t count on any excitement if or when you have time to return. Such a let down. But it won’t stop me from watching. Love GH!

Tom

The writers knew the extent of her contract and wasted time with the stupidity of not having her reunite with Patrick and Emma sooner. Then they added another stupid pregnancy story when they just did one with Patrick and Britt. They could work with her contract like they did with others. Kimberly already stated she is willing. Robinncould leave to work on research but destroying Robin for anyone including the pet of RC is wrong. No way would Robinm leave her husband and child after trying to get back to them. Should have known RC was about his pet not Robin since he didn’t think people would want to see Patrick learn what she went through. Nunt wvery atupidity of his ot nurse he showed on screen. Hope this backfires big time on GH and the ratings. NOT watching Robin be destroyed a vet for a pet of the head writer.

ALSO has anyone mentioned what Kimberly/Robin getting attacked on twitter with vile nonsense from Sabrina and Purina fans yet they mention only Sabrine getting backlash. Works both ways and ALL actors get backlash not sure why this actress and Sabrina attacks are the only ones garnering sympathy. Where is the respect for ALL actors not just the pets.

Blame her for leaving again. I only returned to Gh since last year with vet returns but I keep feeling mislead with how it seemed that some of these actors returns would be longer? Today’s episode with Dr. O being named chief of staff, really how could Robin not be arrested for attacking her? I know it’s a soap but now with her soon departure, I’m with her! Kimberly is too talented to be utilized in such far fetched plots- it’s like Casey the Alien all over . Best of luck KM- best is yet to come!

I don’t understand this at all. Why come back unless you can stay and have a real story? So Patrick and Emma, Mac, Anna & Robert can see you and then have to say goodbye again a few weeks later? This makes zero sense and is insulting to the fans. Unless Patrick and Emma are going to be written off with her for awhile, it’s not fair.

Enough of this yo-yoing.

I am heartbroken that Robin is leaving – Patrick and Robin are my favorite soap couple EVER!!! They are soulmates. That being said, I wish Kimberly all the best in her directing career. I honestly can’t imagine being all about Sabrina, I do not see any chemistry with her and Patrick. If they are going to ruin the character of Robin, I do not have any interest in continuing to watch. That is not fair to the fans who have watched and loved SCRUBS for all these years. So, I guess I will not be watching GH anymore. I just can not stand to watch Patrick with Sabrina.

Robin has been my favorite character on the show for 30 years. She is often times the only reason I watch and the only reason I take breaks and come back to the show – when I know she is coming back. To think that the writers are going to destroy a legacy character (with legacy parents) and a legacy couple so that fans accept Sabrina and her pairing with Patrick — makes me nauseous. I know I do not want to see that and I will stop watching before that happens. It would break my heart to see people (Patrick, Liz, Nicholas, Emma or whomever) say negative things about Robin.

I am a fan of Kimberly and wish her all the success that she desires — but I would hate to see something that she has created for over 30 years that is so beloved by many — destroyed for acceptance of another character. I will never be able to support Sabrina!!!

The propping of Pricess Sabrina will go on. They made the Nurses Ball all about Sobrina & Britch instead of about Robin. They made Robin’s return mostly about Sobrina. Robin came home and Patrick never even asked her about her experience. Robin came home and went off on her own, not even staying with her child. Yes, there were some nice moments, but overall I found the entire story disappointing. I wish Kimberly all the best and will miss Robin. I feel the GH I have loved for 50 yrs is slipping away and morphing into a show I can no longer relate to. Having Robin back, even for a little while, brought MY GH back.

I think it really takes some of the relevance and emotion out of Robin’s return to see her just turn around and leave again. I mean, what was the point?

She ain’t the only one to get flack over a character . Robin could throw Sabrina down the stairs and I still would not hate her. The only way I will like Sabrina if she leaves Port Charles and take Felix with her. Sad to see KMC leave but she didn’t deserve the crappy storyline she got

Watching GH for 50 years. The old timer coming back is why I keep watching. Kimberly is the reason I watch, she is GH. I wish she was staying. Her and Steve where the best. Her leaving is best for her. She is going to make it big and we will see her name a lot.

GH50

Her comments about it being all about Sabrina after they see how she leaves is very ominous. Her character will be destroyed and her exit will leave a bad taste in fans mouths.

I just don’t understand why Cartini feels the need to constantly destroy legacy characters and crap on the show’s history and fans. It’s their show now. We get it. Why the insecurity on their part?

If KMC does leave in that way, and if AJ is on his way to being destroyed and out the door, I think they’re playing with fire.

And KMC is wrong, it will not be all about Sabrina. Her one dimensional, passive aggressive character and the sobby, over dramatic acting that accompanies it, has not gone over with the majority of fans. No matter how much they prop her, and no matter how much the writing will favor her and depict her as the most wonderful, bestest ever person ever, it is not believable. Yes she will be crammed down our throats, but the character and the actress have neither the depth or skill, to have us buy it.

If they show a 30 year veteran and beloved legacy character the door by destroying her and making her the bad guy, the fans will revolt. Are Cartini that dumb to think that we just believe what they tell us?

I respect her right to do what he wants, but I don’t think you can continue a “great love story” when one of the actors is always on and off the canvas.
