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

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

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.

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.

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.

@Georgia.

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…

Georgia

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… Read more »

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…

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

Now comes word from Lauren to ABC7 in Los Angeles, that her husband is still breathing, but is in hospice care in their home.  She admitted that based on some health issues that happened overnight, she inferred that Tony had passed away when she informed people close to her and the family.
