GH's Jason Thompson talks, "Is there hope for Scrubs?"

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with General Hospital’s, Jason Thompson (Patrick) at yesterday’s GH Fan Club Weekend Main Event 2010, to ask him, what he feels about his alter-ego’s slip up by hitting the sheets with ex-gal pal Lisa (Brianna Brown) while his wife, the loyal Robin, (Kimberly McCullough) was out of town.  And, what could be the possible fallout from long time Scrubs fans, and where the story is heading.  Here is what Jason had to say!

Is there plenty to be worried about here for Patrick and Robin?   This does not bode well that Patrick strayed from his devoted wife!

JASON: “I think there is enough to be worried about.  You know what?  I think, and I have said it before, it’s a lot if you are a scrubs fan, and it’s a little difficult, but at the end of the day, its story. We have not done much in this last little bit besides the postpartum depression material, and it’s a big change and a good change. I think its going to make them, Robin and Patrick, stronger in the end.”

How is working with Brianna Brown (Lisa)?

JASON: “She is great, and she works really hard. It’s the first time she has done the soaps, and we all are kind of working together on a story that is difficult to tell.”

Are you worried it’s going to be a difficult story for Scrubs fans to swallow, and of the pushback?

JASON: “I hope it’s difficult for them and there is some pushback.  We have our fan event Sunday, and I don’t look at anything on the internet, so I am kind of excited to see how people are responding…negatively or positively, or right down the middle.  If I get heckled I am ready for it, and I am good with it! “(Laughs) 

Is Kimberly McCullough OK with the story?

JASON: “Yeah I think she feels the same kind of thing. It’s story and it’s something to play. You know we were both saying that we can only go so long doing what we were doing for awhile, and that is there is nothing behind what we were portraying on screen for a good amount of time.  Now there is something behind every single scene we have, and it does not matter what we are taking about… there is something underneath it.”

You’re really involved in what looks to be a quadrangle with Steven, Lisa, you, Robin , and I am wondering where Olivia is going to fit into this? (A romance with Steven?)  There is going to be more fallout.

JASON: “Yeah, there is a lot more to every single scene now and a lot of people involved. Robin does not know, but Carly knows. Laura Wright (Carly) is so great to work with, and I love being on screen with her, and the process of working with her.  I am glad she knows, and the way she feels about Robin, and their history, it certainly adds another wrinkle to the story.”

Will Patrick sleep with Lisa again? What if she psychotically blackmails him to do so, or something like that?

JASON: “No. I don’t think so.  Even if she were to somehow try to blackmail Patrick, he would basically do anything to NOT sleep with her again.  I think the word “mistake” is maybe not the right word for it, but it’s the worst mistake he has ever made. I truly think he is sorry for it.”

Cool interview. I am interested in how this storyline will play out. As long as the usually male slanted writing doesn’t have Patrick blaming Robin for his cheating (her being in Africa, her issues, competing with her old and dead loves,etc) and Robin apologizing then I’ll remain a Scrubs fan.

Good interview! My favorite part the picture of Jason and Kimberly! As for the article itself my favorite parts are him saying Robin and Patrick will be stronger in the end (heck yeah they will be) and “No. I don’t think so. Even if she were to somehow try to blackmail Patrick, he would basically do anything to NOT sleep with her again.” I also agree with him about finally getting a story. I may not like how this all started but I am interested to see the fall out and the ultimate rebuild/reunion!

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
