GH Executive Producer Frank Valentini On What's Next In Story For Jason Thompson: "A Lot Will Happen With Patrick Over The Summer & Into The Fall!"

This week on General Hospital fans of the ABC soap opera are seeing Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) a bit more in the swing of things and into action.

Patrick and his friend, Sam (Kelly Monaco) identify and confront the person the evidence seems to reveal is responsible for causing the car accident that eventually claimed the life of Patrick and Sabrina’s premature born son, Gabriel.

During the red carpet at the recent 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, On-Air On-Soaps caught up with GH executive producer Frank Valentini for just a few moments, during the fast and furious arrivals of his cast to ask him what the future holds for four-time Daytime Emmy nominee and GH stalwart Jason Thompson in story.

Valentini revealed, “A lot will happen with Patrick over the summer and into the fall, and we also have Sabrina’s return.  Jason Thompson is a tremendous actor who is constantly refining and reworking his craft.  He’s always in class, and he is such a wonderful guy and amazing.”

In addition, when asked about his ability to cast the likes of soap superstars such as: Maura West (Ava), Michelle Stafford (Nina,) and Donna Mills and bring them to GH, Valentini responded, “We have a tremendous cast, and we choose everyone very carefully, because of the caliber of actors such as Maurice Benard (Sonny), Laura Wright (Carly,) and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) … you’ve got to bring in some pretty big guns to compete with them.  You will see Donna Mills (Madeline) again this summer.

Watch our “quickie” video interview with Valentini after the jump from Emmy night!  Then weigh-in, what do you think will happen next for Jason Thompson’s Patrick Drake?  What do you want to see happen?  We know that Kimberly McCullough (Robin) is due back, and according to Valentini … so is Sabrina!

I want Patrick to end up with Sabrina because we know Robin’s return is temporary. He is a great actor!

Jennifer

Yes I hope that Patrick end up with Sabrina to give them a real chance to be a family and to see Patrick choose Sabrina over Robin this time because Patrick hurt Sabrina last time by picking Robin and I would love to see what is going to happen with Robin when he be with Sabrina and Emma

Why would you wish Sappy on Patrick? Hasn’t he cried enough? If he doesn’t stop crying the Port Charles Levees are going to burst.

Patrick belongs with robin plain and simple

The only thing that would make me happy is if Sabrina died or stayed away. I don’t get her appeal. She is one of the most annoying characters ever. Pabrina was horrid, had no chem, was rushed, and Sabrina was shoved down everyone’s throats. I don’t need characters constantly telling me how great someone is…blah blah. I hate her more than Sam and that’s not saying much. I still don’t understand why they didn’t go with Patrick/Liz after Robin died. Would have been so much better of a storyline. Although I enjoyed Patrick dumping Sappy on their wedding day. Newsflash, when a guy is still hung up on his dead wife. You don’t rush to marry him. Idiot.

Can we completely erase the memory of Robin from his mind?

I wish I could from mine!

I would like to erase the hacks like RC that ruined characters like Robin for their pets. So glad many stopped watching and didn’t drink RC kool aid.

Um…you realize the actress who plays Robin chose to leave on her own accord, right? What were/are the writers supposed to do? I guess they could recast her, but then everyone who is determined to hate RC and FV will just find something else to complain about.

And for all those who supposedly stopped watching, there are a ton more who have taken their place, as the ratings have reflected.

First of all Kim was planning to leave GH before Frank and Ron took over…and Kim is a smart woman who i believe wouldnt agree to make these appearances if she believed Ron ruined her character…yes, i agree the writing should and could be better…and speaking of better there were far better GH couples than scrubs whom i wish were still around: Leslie and Rick, Monica and Alan, Luke and Laura, Frisco and Felicia, Bobbi and Tony, and Lucy and her duck…lol

@jimh: Yes, exactly. 🙂

Robin and Patrick took time to grow and became so ingrained in each other’s hearts…nothing will ever compare. Kim M / Robin has been a key character for over a quarter century. KM has other explorations in her life but wants to work out a recurring type situation. If the writers could step out of their “let’s give Sonny his 45th nervous breakdown” comfort zone, they could write Patrick and Emma a story line that worked around her schedule and still be very interesting. Sam, no. Sabrina, ugh no chemistry. Just make Scrubs work.

Tina
Tina

So, Jason would only work when Kim is available? And if she needed months off. Then Jason would not work?

I am a Scrubs fan and I get your point. But, Jason should not have to leave or just go recurring cause Kim cannot commit fulltime. I admire Kim for following her dreams and I am happy for her.

But, Jason is on the show full time and deserves a story, not just to wait until Kim is available.

sirfirchick
sirfirchick

@tina
If you read my comment clearly you would see that I wrote “have the writers step out of their comfort zones and write a story that is interesting.” With HER being recurring and theirs continues. Veterans leave and their counterparts go on. Robin’s character could be saving her dad, sick, in other words, “not a choice to go, but had to go.” that way Patrick isn’t taking it personally. Therefore, Patrick and Emma miss mommy openly, chat etc. There are plenty of fun and exciting things they could do while Robin is “off screen.” I wouldn’t sacrifice one character/actor for another. But I think they could work around it and be successful.

You and me both, Harry! However, it would sadly seem that Sobby has left an indelible taint over these past few years…and what a summer bummer that she is returning so soon. I had at least hoped for a blessedly Sappy-free summer.

Robins return is short so i believe the Drakes will divorce as Sam and Patrick become a couple…because of Nina and Rafe, Sam and Silas do the splits but when you add Jason(Billy Miller) to the mix will Sam dump Patrick and return to him?…Meanwhile, Nina stalks Ava with a knife…she breaks into Sonnys home to kill Ava but my mistake she stabs Carly…Ava finds Carly with a knife in her back that is missing from Francos collection…Ava wonders if Franco or Sonny meant the knife for her…without thinking Ava pulls the knife out of Carlys back just as Sonny walks in…an enraged Sonny nearly strangles Ava but she reminds him she is still pregnant…Carly is rushed to GH where her life is saved by Dr.Jason Quartimain who went to the Evelyn Wood Medical School where you can learn to become a doctor in less than 2 months…lol…Anna questions both Ava and Franco about Carlys stabbing and they throw accusations back and forth…Kiki finds Ninas notes wanting revenge on Silas, Sam, Ava and Kiki…Kiki is confronted by Nina and is shocked to see Nina can walk…Nina decides the best way to get even with Ava is to kill her daughter by forcing Kiki to jump out the window but Ava burst in and shocks both Nina and Kiki when she exclaims,’Nina, you cant kill your own daughter!'(we also will learn Nina had her own affair with Franco and Kiki is his daughter after all which wouldve been wonder had Kassie Depaiva played Nina and Michelle Stafford went to Days as Eve)…Nina breaks down and confesses to everything from trashing Silas’ apartment to stabbing Carly whom she mistook for Ava…Nina is sent to MsCavige where she meets Heather Webber…Nina and Heather realize they have a lot in common and become new bff’s plus make numerous unsuccessful escape attempts…lol

Patrick and Robin are soul mates okay? Nothing and no one can get in the way of that. People need to realize it will always be Scrubs! GH even said there not over and wont be over. So give it a rest!

Cathy

Exactly! You cannot even try and compare the propped princess who was handed Robin’s life to the supercouple Acrubs who have over 9 yrs of history and chemistry to the forced pairing using Emma, Britt and Robin to make it work. It still didn’t work for many and they tuned out.

Johnny

I can’t get past his arrogance and ego!

harry

Johnny, if only!! I want Patrick to go back to being arrogant. Since Sabrina’s make over during the Disney on Ice performance (Nurse’s ball) Patrick seems passive and emasculated. And yes, it seems as though he is always crying. Robin took him on and made him take a look at himself while he took her on about her being a control freak. That’s why they worked as a couple–they were flawed characters with oppositional traits.
Having said that, I accept that Patrick and Robin are over. I’d like to see Patrick with anyone who brings out his spirit. Sabrina merely submerged it and I never saw those two ever ignite any chemistry. I thought Patrick had chemistry with Lizzy, Sam, Britt and even Maxie. I’d like to see Patrick return to being that charismatic, arrogant and handsome devil again. Let this character have some fun!

Patrick

“… I’d like to see Patrick return to being that charismatic, arrogant and handsome devil again”

GH really needs to showcase a male character in this manner … again.. and to the delight of

clearly the women… have a ball…. in this manner… Ava, Carly, Nina, … all with twofold cojones…

let’s see some man…. NOW … unfold, unleash, have at em’… what ever his penchant

it’s something to wish for…. and I digress.. as it would seem the writing may not be up to par

they certainly didn’t live up to the Scrubs of past regime

Oye !

the one character that could have oodles of a good time…. not to mention hottie… but just never prevailed… and I have to wonder… what the actor must think…. but… it’s Roger Howarth… HE has all the elements of smolder, personality, and onward and upwards… and lead the show….

alas, to this day… Franco is nowhere…. I couldn’t believe… he’d get jealous of Sonny ? that was lame… and embarrassing… not to mention… he’s still the butt of jokes in Port Charles… even Jocelyn is ridiculing…

Everyone is so positive Billy Miller is going to GH to play Jason. He also might be playing Lucky. Anything is possible, u know,

The latest rumor is Billy Miller will be the new Lucky Spencer, thats what they are saying. Frank Valentini is so handsome, he is just fine, one hot hot man. Lol. Frank is very tall and we should bow and bow to Frank, for saving General Hospital from cancellation. Ron too.

SCRUBS ONLY! I want to see Patrick wake up and smell the coffee. Sick of how they wrote Patrick the last two years like a idiot. He listened to a nurse instead Of his heart and was talked out of both of Robins phone calls. Patrick belongs with Robin and only Robin not some pet of the head writer and ex producer. I want Scrubs back where they belong. And for the record Robins return is short THIS time but longer later on. Blame FV because ALL this time KIMBERLY HAS BEEN AVAILABLE.
Kimberly can come and go all she wants she earned it unlike the nurse and others who get time off and haven’t earned anything. ALSO IF THEY WORK WITH MS from Y/R Make a DEAL WITH KIMBERLY. KIMBERLY said she WOULD do BOTH. She is GH unlike FV other pet MS. Hope the Disney princess nurse goes away and stays away, been great with her gone. if GH wants viewers back they need to get the viewers they lost trying to ruin Robin. So many left and said they won’t watch Robin be destroyed. Sad the amount of disrespect for viewers who know the characters better than the writers who haven’t done their research, BRING BACK ROBIN/ KIMBERLY and PUT HER WITH HER HUSBAND AND CHILD. FIX and STOP RUNING ROBIN FOR ANYONE INCLUDING PATRICK. Robin and Kimberly are GH history and heart.

Dan
Dan

Teresa Castillo aka “The Nurse” has the right to take time off, it’s called maternity leave, it’s a federal law called the Family and Medical Leave Act. So to say that she hasn’t earned the right to take time off is a really silly statement on your part. You act like she took a vacation to the Bahamas. Get a grip. Just because you don’t like the character she plays doesn’t mean you need to disrespect the actress.

Cathy

Sorry FV, Like it or not GH DIDNT deserve to win any Emmys this time. This past year was bad. Still don’t know how make up won an Emmy since it a so bad. You shouldn’t see the bags under some of the actors and actresses eyes. So glad the Emmy people didn’t fall for stunts under FV and RC. NB used Robin’s name and history when it was about the coming out of a nurse who has NO history and forced on viewers.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Not sure if you really are asking why they won, but I believe,the make up work they won for was for the whole Faison in a Duke’s mask, and when the mask melted off his face and not for the day in and day out make up.

Most make up wins in movies and television are for special effect make up, aging people, wounds, monsters, aliens, that kind of work. Those mask might be silly to watch, but a lot time and effort by creative make up artists goes into making them– I think they deserved that Emmy. Masks might a cheesy story, but making them takes skill–

I know because I had a roommate who was a make up artist and I was her guinea pig– I lost count the number of wounds, scars, aging techniques she put on me, and she did a mask of my face — hours of work.

I know it is not easy when a show you love goes in a direction that ruins the whole thing for you—so I get why you are venting, but I hope you will keep an open mind and realize the effort the behind the scenes people aren’t to blame for RC decisions about stories

And Y&R deserved to win instead? This past year on Y&R has been one of the slowest and most boring years in recent history. The writing has been and still is pretty bad, whereas GH’s writing was so much better than Y&R’s. I still don’t get how Y&R won for writing and drama series, and GH was completely shut out, without even a nomination – it makes no sense

Lora

I absolutely love Robin and Patrick together. Their chemistry together was extraordinary and I could look at the two of them together all day long. I don’t like Patrick with Sabrina…no chemistry at all. Sabrina is a sweet girl, but she is not the right match for Patrick. I’ve been watching older GH episodes of Robin and Patrick and oh my goodness their chemistry is off the charts. It’s rare you see a chemistry like they shared and how natural and comfortable they were with each other. I am glad the character Robin is coming back to GH (for a short stint) but heartbroken that this will probably be the end of Robin and Patrick. Thank goodness for YouTube where I can watch older clips of them together.

Jewel

Agree with u 1000%. The story lines they had were sometimes a bit far fetched but they were real. They always worked it out because of that chemistry they had. I just wish there can be one happy couple in daytime. It will be hatd to accept what is going to happen, but as long as he doesn’t move on with sabrina it will be ok (not ok but u get it)

See the little X on your computer screen, mfarrs? You can ex out this blog and not be subjected to comments which disparage your beloved show. It works both ways and what a boring world it would be if we all conformed to each other’s view points. We watch soaps for escapism, and commenting about those soaps, be they negative or positive, are part of that escapism. Why you and Su000/Gslam fail to understand this despite being educated to this end again and again is just mind boggling.

mfarrs70

I’m not suggesting people don’t share their opinions, but the haters always seem to think that’s what this is about. And what you fail to understand is that criticism works both ways. I criticized you, you criticized me. Fair play. What I’m questioning is why people who hate GH pop up here day after day spreading their messages. Watch something else, it would be a much better use of an hour a day.

I can’t invest anymore into this show, although I’m always tempted to return and see the magic happen on screen with Jason T. and Kimberly M. I have the ultimate respect for Kimberly for leaving the show to pursue a dream, but miss the days when actors (and the show producers and writers too for that matter) would not return to a show when they can clearly see how their character has been compromised. Robin would NEVER leave Patrick and Emma especially after they thought she was dead for so long – and not even for the Saintly (not) Jason Morgan. I feel for Jason T. because he only gets good material to play when Kimberly stops by the show, but part of me wishes that the character of Robin died than to see them drag Robin though this. And Patrick has never been the same since she “died” in the first place. I don’t even recognize him anymore, especially when he was with that Sabrina child. Glad to see that JT is getting airtime and a story for a change though. Good for him! Such a good actor! Sorry, GH. I won’t be watching.

I think the Robin/Patrick fans are a tad over invested. It’s a TV show! You liked them as a couple? Great. They might be splitting up…just like couples do every day in “real” life. Patrick will move on, Robin will move on, Emma will survive…and only you, dear fans…can save yourself from this self-inflicted tragedy.

Soaps unravel lives. That’s why they’re soaps. They twist and turn and spin new stories…new alliances, new romances…resurrect and destroy. Go with the flow…enjoy the show…and chillax……………..

Id like to see Patrick away from both Robin and Sabrina and once in awile have some dark and menacing mood swings from a head injury like i posted with suOOOO below…away from love triangles at least for awhile!!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

I don’t know jimh…I like Patrick’s stability and charm. He plays “poignant” very well…I don’t see him going over to the dark as in criminal side…especially with Emma. He does need an interesting storyline though, be it romance or other. Maybe he’ll become unhinged…revert back to drug use…he’s been under a lot of stress to say the least. Though I’m hoping not. I like the steady Patrick.

Out of all the soaps GH has the most powerful actors, no doubt of that..
Having JT/Patrick up front will be a treat!!!

Looks like were are in for a great summer/fall ..

Hope Robbins gets killed again, her too many in and out returns should end .. 🙂
If they don’t kill Robin then she’s back for the divorce / whichever keeps her gone will do

I would like to see the squeaking clean doctor having some deep dark secret.. Was he involved in the organ donor ring along with Dr Webber?? Something other then him being in a love triangle when Robin comes back.. Been there done that. Frank, Ron, Please Give JT a meaty s/l worthy of an Emmy.

Suprise! Suprise! Im agreeing with you here…i too would like to see Patrick move away from both Robin and Sabrina, and have some dark and crazy moments…Ive been watching Britains Coronation Street where the character of Nick suffered a head injury and has some dark and crazy even menacing moments that frightens members of his own family…GH should do the same with Patrick…sudden unexplained mood swings and then we learn later he had kept secret a head injury he had from the car accident…id love it!!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

I think the head trauma/evil deeds was already covered by Franco. LOL…

I’m thinking what I posted earlier. IF they have Patrick spiral down…it just might be from addiction. From there he loses custody of Emma…where does she wind up? With Anna? Does a newly cast Robin come back and take full custody?

Does Patrick let Rafe die on the table? I’m so hoping not…or…is he responsible for some permanent disability which haunts him and adds to his stress…thus his drug use?

Something’s bound to shift with him…but if so I hope he eventually reverts to “good” Patrick. I love that guy!

I volunteer you to tell RC that we want a darker menacing Patrick by whatever means-

At certain times he did seem to lose focus, and he was a bit arrogant when he was talking about the recent casting additions like MS, MW, etc. But when you’re in charge of a show like GH and have such a talented, star-studded cast, I think you have some bragging rights lol

GH has been good of late, but whatever happened to Monica Quartermaine? I don’t think we’ve seen her since April at AJ’s funeral (and we barely saw her then). I just hope when it comes out that Sonny murdered AJ, that one–Sonny goes to prison permanently, and two–that we see Monica confront Sonny.

Is FC just as dense as RC or does he just think we are.I don’t drink Kool-Aid, I knew Kim wants t direct, and has acted on this show her whole life and is tired. Suebrinna has no on screen chemistry with Patrick the one she did have chemistry with they sent to jail carlos.What do we get, Phyllis. MS chewing scenery and playing the same old same old. Right down to the jazz hands and repeating her lines three times in a row. We mant no mob. we get more mobsters killing ,in cold blood mind you the character we enjoyed return and we get new jasbot, killer for hire??? They send Rafe off screen ,the kid was dragged around by his mother, and then a lunatic for a father. bring him back make him a druggie, and a murderer. Funny a troubled kid does stupid things and dies, and sonny just kills AJ and goes free. Ava also . TG is not Luke he’s a ??? who cares. he killed his grandson and he never payed. I like Patrick, I did like ME until he became Silas, .I have watched a total of maybe an hour since the last scene SK had as Ghost AJ..FC gets no pat on the back for the things he is allowing Re-Ron to do, can’t pat him on the back, his hands in the way. I might return to see Robin come back but I won’t be surprised to see her wearing horns. Sick a fork in this show its done, the emmy’s knew that.

smoochie
smoochie

after 40 plus years I sadly agree with most of what you just said especially regarding MS and ME. and I’ve always been an avid ME admirer. He just isn’t up to par as Silas. Seems like he’s going through the motions. Regarding the possibility of a Robin with horns, that’s funny. One never knows, especially after she’s supposedly been hanging out in a nether world with all kinds of dead or alive ? peeps ie Cassadingos and quartamain/morgan . whodothatvoodoothatheydoosowell.

smoochie
smoochie

btw I just might have to stop watching altogether because of MS. Couldn’t stand her on the other show, same exact process on GH. Plus there is no happiness or love to be found anywhere on this show right now-its soo dark there should be some comic relief, which I thought would be brought about by Ilene Kristin-she is injecting some Roxie into Delia’s character (funny word and name aberrations or poetic license take your pick) All the characters are involved in some kind of devious dark plot right down to little Spence working it out with the Britch who is baaack.

Shay

I hear you, janet! The show has been pretty unwatchable as of late….a LOT of ff material! As for “Stafford,” you are right on the mark. I was not thrilled that she came on board to GH and as the fabled Nina, no less….it simply doesn’t work for me. However, my greatest gripe about that mess of a storyline is the totally obnoxious, big-mouthed broad of a nurse that they have doing Ms. Clay’s bidding…what a vile, vituperative, abrasive shrew she is….greedy and evil! I had her pegged as such at first sight and immediately couldn’t stand her! Every time she is on displaying her bad manners and arrogant attitude to a thus-far dumbfounded Silas, I just want him to kick her ignorant butt to the curb. To speak to a man in his own home that way is beyond rude and ill-bred….it’s completely unacceptable. I truly hope that we will not be subjected to this nasty piece of work much longer!!!!! She’s as impossible to tolerate as her flip side, the saccharin sobbing nurse. Why is it so few of the characters have no nuances? They are very simplistic in either their goodness or badness, and their one-dimensional aspects make them really boring, intolerable and tedious.

Granted Patrick needs to resolve and move on beyond Robin, at this point. (Make peace w/ it !)
However Sabrina is not the answer, he needs someone fresh, INTERESTING and intellectually
stimulating. I’m sure Frank V can find a suitable match.

Dee Dee

Sabrina is the answer she is good for Patrick and Emma. They need a women in ther life that will put them first.

Ang

Sabrina is boring and a ‘yes woman’ to Patrick. She puts him on a pedestal. It’s like she’s a different woman when she’s with Carlos. If she could be that person with Patrick they might work.

Patrick needs a woman that challenges him and has her own mind. That is not Sabrina.

I think Jason Thompson has done some of his best work with Teresa/ Sabrina .

I’ve always loved JT. He does cry a lot but very effectively and appropriately for whatever/wherever his storyline dictates/take him. But enough already. As much as I have and always will a soft spot for Kimberly McCullough and her Robin because I watched her grow up on GH from day one, it’s time for JT/ Patrick to move on to a new and exciting chapter in his life. And as much as I don’t want to see yet another new actress come to GH, I’ve looked more closely as to the possibilities with the existing available ish females on the show, and no pairings would work in my opinion. I thought I’d like him with Elizabeth or Sam, and even Maxie who I think has real great chemistry with Patrick. But that was all a long time ago, and for JT the bloom has come off the rose a bit, same for RH, KS and KM. JT needs someone that sparks go off with on camera and the other three just fit the bill as bff/sis/bro karmic attraction. I think JT is a great actor but he needs some inspired writing. I hope his future will finally be bright. Emma who I think I adore most on the show,deserves to be happy in a complete family.

Jason is a top-notch lead actor, deserving of an Emmy. I love his scenes with the actress who plays little Emma Scorpio Drake. They really seem to have bonded as co-stars. Their scenes are so heart-felt.

Scrubs need to end Patrick and Sabrina belong together

Sabrina will look like a desperate idiot if she takes Patrick back. He chose Robin and left her at the altar on her wedding day. Definitely not the picture of true love.

Since Robin’s been gone and the few scenes that we have seen of Patrick and Sabrina together, they were not playing any “We’re in love” vibes. It was mostly like Sabrina was Emma’s friend and Patrick’s baby mama.

I never watched the show when Robin and Patrick were together. I just want to say Patrick is a very awesome actor and so is Sabrina. I really want Patrick and Sabrina back together i think they are awesome couple. I also want to say another super couple is Nathan and Maxie. There is a lot of talent on GH Carly Sam,Sonny,Britt,Felix,Julian,Kiki and i am excited for Billy Miller. I watched him on Young and Restless he was one of my favorite.

I adore Robin but Kim can’t commit and it’s unfair to make Patrick linger waiting for her. I don’t get the Sabrina- hate but I’m kind of neutral to her character. I think there’s a better match for her out there (either in the current cast or someone new) than Patrick.

I have high hopes that Patrick and Sam will drift into each others’ lives romantically but that Elizabeth will also be an option. I’d rather see those relationships develop esp if there’s a Jason return in the future – having either Sam or Liz fall for Patrick and then the eventual truth coming out that he knew that there was a possibility of Jason being alive … well, it’s just too good to pass up so I hope RC go that direction.

I do not think Kim M should return. I do not think that it is fair to the fans or the crappy storylines that are a result of her short term returns. If she comes back as a guest for nostalgia purposes that is one thing but to put her in a major story line…..

Also the hype about the woman that is playing Nina was over done! She needs to tone it down she over acts!

I agree. The same happened when Vanessa Marcil, who I absolutely adore and love, returned in 2010. The writing was beyond dreadful and the storyline was incredibly boring. Characters with such history and ties to Port Charles should be honored. Don’t allow them to return on such short terms with awful storylines.

I love the Sabrina character. Can not wait until Theresa returns! Hope she finally marries Patrick!

I agree , but based on Patrick’s comment to Emma it may not happen.

There are great stories ahead for GH it seems..It was Nina who ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road and killed their baby ( I am guessing here after watching the last couple of episodes) , so that alone will bring a big storyline for Patrick, Sam, Silas and Nina..Also with Robin’s return, it will usher in Jason recast and different possibilities, so more storyline for Patrick

I like the chemistry between Sam and Patrick…They can make a great and sexy couple…Is it just me?

Jason Thompson is the leading actor in this new generation of soaps, and he WILL eventually get his Emmy.

GH is so over the top and crazy and messy and I LOVE IT.

Patrick and Sam pairing will lead me to watch Steve Harvey show at that time slot.
GH can do better.

A week plus of Kelly Monaco on-air everyday as Sam-monotone was extremely boring. The only time she raised her voice to show any type of emotion was when she told Molly to get out of the car. Ugh. I love Donna Mills, Michelle Stafford, and Maura West. Three top-notch lead actresses. Love Maura’s facial expressions when doing scenes. She’s incredible. Please send Kiki, Levi, and the on-slaught of newbies and recurring characters out of town. Such a waste of air-time and their storylines are beyond boring and dreadful.

Could Jason Thompson leave GH and Robyn and Patrick get the happy ending?
Pair him with Sam because it’s going nowhere, because of Jason return.
Also Jason Thompson is engaged!

This Sam thing is wrong!!!!…why all of sudden she’s taken Patrick side?
Why is Silas all of sudden getting close to his wife…I USE THIS WORD LOOSELY..
I’m trying to hold on to Sam and Silas, but its becoming difficult

Back in 2005-06, I Would have wanted Samtrick, But I wanted them AS FRIENDS ONLY…

I Got use to Sam and Silas or John and Sam, but now they want to change the script

I bet RC, got plans for the other demented one Roselie, she’s will be related to Robin or Sabrina….What’s does he have instore for Kelly?

Will they cast EH for Robin
Will the cast BM for Jason Morgan

But I know one thing they should have kept MS where she was at…….Its too many 40 AND 50 somethings…..

And for the record KM, don’t talk in a monotone voice…

I’m fed with the show……
