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!

Genie Francis: “God bless sweet Donna Messina. A great friend and mother hen of us all. We went to her with our feelings, we could speak freely & we knew we were safe..and when we needed it, she would give us a stern no bull talking to, to set us straight. There was no better friend. Godspeed.

Maurice Benard:  “Sometimes you meet someone in life you connect with and unfortunately life just takes that person away.  And no matter how much your heart breaks you want to remember the good times.  My best friend, my sister, Donna used to hate taking pictures.. I used to have to grab her and hold her. And we would laugh and laugh.  I will never forget this memory, and I will never forget what you meant in my life.”

Jean Passassante: “I’m devastated about Donna. I’ll always remember her kindness in trying to glitz me up for parties, and how she was everyone’s wise pal. Or Mom. Thinking of you, Mo, and the rest of the GH family.”
