General Hospital's Patrick and Sam Bond On Dating Again After Your Spouse Has Died! – Watch The Scenes!



On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, many fans have commented on the well-written and heartfelt scenes between Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) and Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco).  What made these scenes carry some emotional weight was that each of these characters had lost the love of their lives.  Patrick has lost Robin,  and Sam lost Jason. The parallels don’t stop there.  When Robin “died”, Patrick and her were very much in love, and she was taken from him way to soon.  Same for Sam! When Jason was killed he left a newborn son and a wife, and the couple finally reconciled and were happy again.  So the question is, how does one move on with their life and open their heart to a possible new romantic adventure or potential partner?

Sensing Sam is holding herself back from wanting to go on a date with Silas (Michael Easton), and meet him and Kiki and Morgan’s party,  Patrick sees that Sam might just be using her son Danny being hospitalized from meeting up with Silas.  Sam says, “Moving on is hard, and every time I take a step toward with  someone else, …”  Patrick finishes her thoughts and says, “… feels like you are moving away … ”  And at that point the two bond over  the excuses they would use to not to go out on a date, so they did not feel like they were betraying their “dead” spouses!

Watch the scenes after the jump of Patrick and Sam commiserating over a bag of Cheese Puffs, and let us know what you thought of them!

This is what I’ve wanted ALL – along – I think these two have so much in common… shared

single parenthood.

imagine the drama, if only.. GH had traversed… this twosome.

not to mention… “romance”‘ – ing….

this would have been a spectacular way for Kimberly McCullough to return.

“Why don’t you explain to Sabrina how we’d all be better off if Jason died months ago” – Patrick Drake

I love the chemistry between KM and JT. SamTrick is so pretty. I wish the writers would go there.

I would love to see SamTrick together. They have fantastic chemistry. Even one date to see where it goes.

I loved the scenes! Jason Thompson and Kelly Monaco have fantastic chemistry! All along I have wanted Patrick and Sam to connect and bond because they have so much in common. It would have been great for their friendship to develop sooner and I would have preferred for them to be romantic partners, but now that Robin is coming back, I prefer just a friendship. Glad the scenes are getting the incredible attention they deserve because those two really have it together!

As nice as those scenes were, I just can’t see Sam & Patrick together. He was so against everything Jason did for a living & told anyone who would listen that Jason was the devil & should have been arrested & put away forever…Jason wasn’t just Sam’s husband, he was the love of her life & her soulmate. I just can’t see her getting with someone who had such a hate on for her husband. Not that I want her to get with Silas either…but that’s another rant… 🙂

The scene was about 2 friends and nothing more than friends.
There no was no intention of Patrick and Sam as a couple LOL ..

They share the same sorrow.. I thought it very touching.

Sam also knows that at one time Jason thought thought Robin was the love of his life. They both had to accept the other’s spouse as important people in their partner’s lives.


When is Robin returning???

We should see her in early October

Beautiful scenes, Sam/Patrick have always been friends and it was wonderful to have Patrick being further down the road help Sam to see she can move on without betraying Jason. I loved the scene and hopefully they remain good friends.

When were Patrick & Sam friends? I can’t remember them even speaking unless you count when Sam was yelling at him to operate on Jason right after he thought Robin died.

They sat in a cafe one time having tea and talking when Patrick came back to find Emma’s doll. He also talked to Sam about Robin when she was having problems after Emma was born. At one time when she was in the hospital when she was attacked, Patrick hugged her and was on her side when no one else believed her, well except Jason. He also was with her when Danny had his tests done. He also told Silas that Sam trusted him about Danny. Those are a few of the times.

So not until after Jason had died. That’s my point. Patrick hated everything that Jason stood for and Sam defended on many occasions. And now they are supposed to be pouring their hearts out to each other. In the context of the characters it doesn’t make sense. But there’s a lot of that going around on GH lately. Franco/Carly, Michael betraying his brother when loyalty was the most important thing that Jason/Sonny ever taught them.

Patrick and Sam go way back. When Patrick was a ladies man then, he flirted with Sam. Besides that, Patrick has always been respectful to Sam and vice versa. Patrick and Sam has a good friendship and you can check out their clips via youtube.


I LOVED that cafe scene… even way back then… I was like… Woah… this could WORK… BIG.

and GH coulda woulda shoulda had this twosome…. to story….

your other points are well taken…

dag! proof that these two potential… life… romance… love… all the triggers essential

ie: isn’t this nice…. further proof… that good actors and writing… hand in hand… deliver memorable serial…

I’m sorry about Sabrina…. geez! not since… Jenn Lilly as temp recast… ie: Maxie..

has it been sorry for…

They have friendship vibe just as she had with Jax/Sonny. I remember some of Sam and Jax talking when she was with Jason, those two also had a great friendship vibe. Sonny really has been more of a father figure but that has stopped now. I loved Sam/Ric and thought they would have been great trouble makers but the writers ruined that. My point is I see Patrick/Sam as another Jason/Carly and hope that possibly they may go with that. I love Sam/Silas together, they have passion even when they argue – same as she had with SB, they also were great when they were arguing.

They have great chemistry, and wouldve been a better coupling….maybe they can comfort each other in the future after Ava breaks up Sam and Silas and the love of Patricks life…Robin…returns but turns out to be an imposter who kidnaps baby Ben…

I want to see Robin back with Patrick. No one has the chemistry that Kimberly and JT have. NO ONE!


This was a great scene!!! Well done too!!!

Beautiful scenes between Sam and Patrick. I would like to see more friendship interaction between them.

Kelly and Jason are fantastic together. I’ve always felt they had great chemistry. It’s too bad she doesn’t have that kind of chemistry with Michael Easton since the writers are he’ll bent on forcing them together. Sam and Silas will never have that kind of chemistry not matter what lines they deliver, it’s just not there for me. I agree with so many others, the writers should have listened to the fans when they were begging for a Samtrick pairing. I too feel its too late since we now know Kimberly is returning. We can always hope the writers will wake up and realize Easton is not the end all and find another actor for Kelly to be with. I won’t hold my breath, as we all know RC has told the fans many times he doesn’t care what they think or want. So just give us some more Sam and Patrick scenes as friends, I’ll take it any day over Silas!

ICAM with you.

I agree as well. Sam and Silas are contrived. Nothing organic and fresh about the pairing.

This was the story waiting to be told. The chemistry was definitely there. They just needed a story. le sigh…

These were some of the best scenes I’ve seen in a long time. Patrick and Sam have so much in common and a fairly long history even though their interactions over the years have always been sporadic. I would’ve much rather watched the two of them move on together, then when Robin came back the triangle would be more compelling IMO cause they[dd all be long term characters. with Sabrina, i really don’t care about her so this triangle will fall flat for most long time GH fns who will automatically want Patrick and Robin.

Samtrick is pwetty.

Kelly and Jason have chemistry while Kelly and Easton don’t. It’s very obvious when you watch their scenes. Kelly and Jason are close friends off screen and it shows in their scenes. Kelly and Easton aren’t close off screen and it sure shows in their scenes.

Agreed. There is just something missing from Kelly and Michael. They may have had it 10 years ago. Not seeing it now at all don’t care what the Siam fan girls say. The spark is NOT there.

I am so tired of seeing those “muted” scenes with Kelly and Michael. No surprise or intrigue. So darn forced. I love Easton but the spark is gone from his eyes. Kelly and Jason would have been intriguing to say the least.

Honestly I find Silas kind of creepy and I am an ME fan. His character just doesn’t sit we’ll with me.

The have wonderful chemistry….

They could have been a item

SamTrick….I like them…..

Sam and Patrick would be a hot couple. I am over Patrick and Robin…..not the same upon her return….Silas and Sam are forced.

General Hospital’s John J. York On His Health Battle & Living Life While Waiting for Bone Marrow Transplant: “Let’s Just Go One Day At a Time”

John J. York’s positive outlook on his current medical diagnosis is quite remarkable, as his approach might be one many facing the same circumstances might consider.  The beloved General Hospital vet, where he has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years, revealed last week that he is battling cancer.

The popular soap star shared that he has been fighting myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, and multiple smoldering myeloma: two blood and bone marrow disorders.

York spoke with PEOPLE about how he found out about his diagnosis, the support his wife Vicki has shown throughout, and how he lives life day to day, while he waits for an all-important bone marrow transplant.

The actor shared what happened the moment he learned of his diagnosis: “(The doctor) was explaining all these different things and cells and all different levels and words that had, you know, 25 letters in them. And I didn’t understand. And Vicki finally came out and said, ‘Does John have cancer?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ And I’m sitting there, I’m really just like a fly on the wall, listening to him talk to Vicki because she was the one asking all the questions.  At the end of his doctor’s conversation with Vicki, York’s one question was simple: ‘Why do I feel so good?’”

Vicki and John were in the process of moving to Tennessee to be closer to their daughter, Skyler, but considering UCLA in Los Angeles as John’s treatment center.  In the end, Skyler’s husband suggested Vanderbilt University for John’s cancer center so he did not have to travel back and forth to the west coast.

Since March of this year, John has had IV chemo treatments every month, with another one coming up in September. On that, John expressed: “It is what it’s, you know what I mean? And then everybody’s gotta get their treatment. And then you go home, go about your life and you play with the kids. And here we are.”

Currently, York is waiting for a bone marrow transplant. He has been moved up the donor priority list. If anyone is interested, and you are between 18-40, you can join the registry here

York shared how Vicki is coping with what’s ahead: “Yeah, she’s scared, but believe it or not, I really kinda wasn’t because I feel great. Personally, I feel like it’s in God’s hands. God’s will be done. It’s gonna work out okay, one way or another. I’m either gonna survive or I’m not. And life goes on and things are gonna be okay for everybody… Let’s just go one day at a time.”

Share your well-wishes, and support and love to John, as he goes through the next phase of his health battle and let’s hope a bone marrow transplant donor is found for him soon. After all, we all want to see Mac Scorpio return to Port Charles, but more importantly, we all want John to feel better and beat this.Comment below.

Patricia continued with these sentiments, as she wanted to clear up any misinterpretations on this death: “He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years. He did everything he could to control the disease. He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life. The other causes of death being told are not true. I wish they were but they just aren’t. We all loved him so much and are desperately trying to deal with our loss. I will have nothing further to say. Thanks for the love and support.”

The soap world as well as Billy’s family, friends, loved ones, and colleagues are in deep mourning for this talented man, who was gone too soon.

Billy Miller Remembered by His GH and Y&R Co-Stars As They Share Grief on His Passing

UPDATED: On Sunday, longtime friends and co-stars of actor Billy Miller took to social media to share their remembrances and sorrow on the passing of the three-time Daytime Emmy-winning star.

Miller passed away on Friday, September 15th as first reported and confirmed by Michael Fairman TV.  While the official cause of death has not been revealed, it has been related to the press by his management that Billy was suffering from manic depression.

Billy played Jason Morgan/Drew Cain on General Hospital from 2014-2019, and prior to that won 3 Daytime Emmys for his role as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless from 2008-2014.  He started his soap career on All My Children in the role of Richie Novack back in 2007-2008.

Below are just some of the tributes pouring in for Billy:

Eric Braeden: “We lost BILLY MILLER! It saddens me deeply! He was a very gifted actor! Amelia(Victoria) and I took him to dinner one evening while he was in tough negotiations, and I remember telling him to reconsider, because rarely is an actor given a part that describes him almost perfectly, and to not make the mistake I had seen some actors make over my 60’years in the business, that they are indispensable! Once an actor thinks that or is told that by some sycophants, they step onto a slippery road…usually to oblivion! “BILLY BOY” was not only a damn good actor but a nice man! May he rest in peace and meet up with KRISTOFF in the BEYOND, ‘the undiscovered country from whose bourn no Traveller returns “ and tell each other jokes! They were both loved by their colleagues!”

Melissa Claire Egan: “My beautiful friend. I love you. I’m so sad. And I’m so sorry.”

Chrishell Stause: “Still processing this. Too many feelings, but you are gone too soon and I’m so happy I got to work with you all those years, but also call you a friend. I hope you are at peace now ”

Jess Walton:RIP to my precious Billy Miller. You were and ARE  much loved by all of us who knew you”

Daniel Goddard: “The world is going to be just that little bit more dull without you in it… you had that “it” factor that lit up every room you were in. Rest In Peace Mate ”

He always seemed to have his heart in the right place and I always laughed when I was around him. #FlightOfAngels#RIP #BillyMiller #bereft”

Frank Valentini: “I am devastated to hear news of the incredibly talented Billy Miller’s passing. On behalf of the entire (General Hospital) family, our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Elizabeth Hendrickson: “Today I should have been sending you a Happy Birthday text BJ. Truth be told i hated calling you BJ but that’s what your closest friends /family called you. I eventually caved. The last couple years we kept in touch through birthdays and monumental moments or when we wanted to vent about “ work”. You gave me a lot of advise. When i understood it always mumbling your words. We always joked about that.
We didn’t text or talk often. But I’m glad the last couple times we did, we had a great banter like we used to. I knew that we always held a special place in each others hearts, no matter what. You were such an amazing friend to your inner circle. They were your family. You would do ANYTHING for them. That’s who really were. As loyal as they came. I’m sad and yes, mad at myself that I wasn’t being a better friend, checking in more often because I was thinking of you recently. I was. I hope you know that we are all here now texting each other, sending pictures and sharing memories of how fucking AWESOME you were. This hole in my heart will never be filled. Goodnight, sweet Billy.”

Scott Clifton: “This is not fair. We deserved so much more of him. Rest in peace, Billy. You’re immortal now.”

Coby Ryan McLaughlin (ex-Shiloh, GH): “Man… this sucks. Billy and I played on GH together for nearly a year. He was intense, focused, cool and kind. He knew the hamster wheel that I was about to start spinning on all too well, and always made himself available to help the new guy….. Rest easy, man…

Michael Muhney (ex-Adam, Y&R):  “Billy, My fellow Texas brother. You lit up every room with your smile. Your quiet intensity onscreen was second only to your gentle kindness and genuine care in private. We recently shared work on an Apple series, and your encouragements during and after that process, and your kindness over the years are now but a few of the things I’ll hold on to as warm memories of you. What a big heart you had. You were bigger and braver and bolder than this life. You were legend. There is no landing to this final cliffhanger, the wings you’ve spent your lifetime earning have carried you up to that wonderful place in the sky. Happy Birthday Billy Miller.”

The Young and the Restless:The daytime community mourns the loss of Billy Miller who graced Y&R with his talent for many years as Billy Abbott. Our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.”

Kathleen Gati: “I am beyond sad to hear this tragic news.#BillyMiller was always so kind, professional and a wonderfully talented colleague  @GeneralHospital Deepest condolences to his family, friends and fans.”

TK Weaver: “Devastated. Hard to find words. You always gave me such good advice. You were always there for me. You were an amazing person. #BillyMiller I’ll never forget you. Please join me in praying for his family and loved ones.”

Greg Rikaart: Generous, passionate, fun, soulful and brilliant Billy. Can you just imagine the reunion between him and Jeanne? I can. Rest well, dear Billy

Sean Kanan: “Shocked and saddened to hear that Billy Miller is no longer with us. He was a terrific actor and always kind when we would see each other. I pray that his family and friends find comfort and peace during this unimaginably difficult time. #BillyMiller #YR”
