Kimberly McCullough Returning To General Hospital!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Here comes Robin!  Yup, great news today first via Kimberly McCullough herself!  After departing General Hospital over four months ago, the fan favorite is now returning to her old stomping grounds to reprise the role of Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake!

McCullough tweeted a picture of a stack of pages from a script and then  noted: “A day in the life of a soap actor. Say ‘soap-y’ I dare you. #notthewholescript #onlymyscenes.”

Later ABC Soaps In Depth confirmed via General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini that Robin is returning to the series this summer!

But the questions remain!  Is Kimberly just returning to officially play out the end of the Scrubs romance with long-time scene partner Jason Thompson (Patrick) on a short-term basis?  Or, will they reconcile, so therefore Kimberly stays on the show more long term?  Or, is something else at play here?  Will Robin bring Jason home to PC? Indications are thus far that McCullough’s return is for a shorter stint, not a long one.

So, what do you think of the news of Kimberly returning again to GH?  What do you hope happens to the relationship of Patrick and Robin?  Let us know!

I am so happy for gear quick returns usher in Billy Miller!

I do not see Billy Miller being cast as hit man Jason lol ..
I believe If, again, IF, Billy Miller were to come to GH he would not be cast as Jason, no way..

jOHNNY
jOHNNY

Are you on drugs. lol. Billy Miller would rock as Jason Quartermaine. Mark my words , Billy will be the new Jaon. Suoooo go make trouble on another site. LOL.

William

We all know Kimberly won’t be back longer than a month.

Her No. 1 goal is to be a movie director. This won’t be long at all, peeps.

Mika

The latest rumors are that Billy would be nuLucky! Much more age appropriate.

I think that when Jason was “lost” he might have changed and no longer feels the need to kick ass and take names later.

Su00, at least you didn’t say,”if that happens, I will eat my hat” as I don’t think straw is easily digested.

Patrick

as good and superb an actor as Billy Miller is….

he’s only as good as the cast around him.

ie: when Y&R was in it’s hey day….

he had Adam, Victoria, Jack, Ashley, Jill, and so on and so on

if he is cast as Jason Q…. and which one? the Q doctor or Sonny’ henchman

I so hope he’s not saddled with Sonny’ lot…. it’s not good enough

Sonny, Michael, Kiki, Carly, Olivia, Franco, Morgan….

you can see the difference…. it’s NOT going to work

even with the likes of Sam… who’s barely pulsating any thing… I don’t know… I get that she was magic with Steve Burton… but come on…. look alive

if he’s the Q doctor…. I can guarantee … the writing team… only bring on Tracy and Monica enough… when it’s bait hook… and switch… to highlight and bring vets on to assuage the long time audience

I really and truly want him back as Matt….

the acting troupe this would bring… is serious big time stuff… to savor

Patrick, Matt, Britt, Nina, Kevin, Dr.O, Madeleine, Nathan….

just suround him with quality like

and it’ll pay off in spades

one would hope…

the writing on GH is better than Y&R

Nonna

I agree.

I see him as Dylan Q.

Steve Burton will always be Jason to me, but since that is not an option now, I truly see Billy Miller playing the part very well, and think he will join the GH cast in that capacity.

William

Why is this conversation about Billy Miller and Steve Burton?

Nobody notice it’s about Kimberly McCullough coming back (when she’s so obviously not wanted!)?

I always want robin home ………ALWAYS,
I LOVE ROBIN,

elhu

As a lonnnnng time GH fan, I love Robin (and Kimberly too), but the leaving and returning is getting old, and temporarily forces changes to the direction of the story line to accommodate the return, and then the exit.

Cathy

Love Robin and welcome Kimberly back home any time she can. I believe in the fall for ratings she will be back LONG term.

Anna

If it frees Patrick from land of the Fairytale Princess Unicorns I am good with it!

It is more than obvious there will be no Sabrina and Patrick, when she returns..
RC pulled out of that couple..
When she left she got a cheeky kiss bye from Patrick, friendly but not a love couple..

so no worries of Patrick and Sabrina..
what will happen is;
Robin will return and Patrick will divorcee her..
it is written so shall it be.. 🙂

Cathy
Cathy

SO SHALL IT NOT BE! Scrubs are the story even when Sabrina was in the picture. I don’t think divorce since he will look stupid as she isn’t vacationing instead she is saving a person who saved her. She forgave him for lisa and even though she doesn’t need forgiveness for ANYTHING let alone saving a person that saved her, he can man up and support Robin. Be sides, if Robin didn’t save Jason people would be complaining and now she saves him and people complain. I just am waiting for Scrubs to reunite they re the Supercouple and SCRUBS will ALWAYS BELONG TOGETHER.

Anita Pinser

I’m ecstatic that Kimberly is returning but since her main interest is directing I think it’s time for closure for her character with Patrick. I wish she would have a longer stint on GH but it’s not fair to her fans. I do wish she would return for good, but at least we will see her this summer

Wilda Kerney
Wilda Kerney

I think you are right! I have watched her grow up on the show and would really miss her; but it is time to let Patrick go and come back for christening; weddings; funerals; unforeseen medical complications etc LOL

Aaron

I love Kim as Robin, but enough’s enough with this leaving/returning/leaving/returning game she’s playing. She’s a life long soap actor who’s acting career never took off for the most part. We all know the soap genre might not be around forever. Why not just ride it out with GH and enjoy the nice payday while it’s still there and then try the directing route? Sometimes I feel as if these artists don’t think logically when it comes to financial matters.

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

I think she IS thinking logically in transitioning to directing right now. If KM can give some closure to Robin’s relationships in PC while getting paid for it, that’s good financial planning. Better for her to depart on good terms with the cast & crew, & start her directing career when she wants to than to have to rely on directing as a fall back position. I get the feeling when watching her, too, that she’s had enough of acting. She started so young. If being behind the camera is more interesting for her, there’s no reason to not take the leap now when her career momentum is in that direction.

Rosanna
Rosanna

she is not TIRED of acting she simply wants to do other things such as directing, her leaving and coming back is no big deal, it`s funny when Tony Geary is off for 3 months NOBODY says anything but yet Kimberly is called selfish etc etc, it`s life people change all the time and this is NO different!

janice
janice

I agree…I adore KM, but the last couple of time (just in my opinion), her heart was not in her acting. All good things must come to an end and it sucks, but I wish her the best what ever she does. Will be glad to see her back and I hate it when she leaves, but I guess we don’t have any control over that

Aaron
Aaron

Good point. Guess I never thought of it in those terms. I just figured she’ can make way more full time at GH over the next few years than she can directing .

brzz

When Kimberly reprised her role back in 2005 or 06, she said ABC agreed to help her with her directing career. So I think the return stints are beneficial to all parties. Her fans are happy, the execs are happy with ratings bump and Kimberly is happy. I love seeing Robin on my screen

Nonna
Nonna

You are so right. I realize this is a soap, but the writers should try and make these stories as realistic as possible. The damage ( if it were real life ) of what this ” now I’m here now I’m not ” can potentially do to a child emotionally, is downright cruel and often irreparable. This behaviour, from a paren, is a detriment and can really play havoc with a child’s psyche. Robin should just disappear completely, and never come back. As much as I like her, I neither anticipate nor savour her reappearance with bated breath as I did in the past. I guess the thrill is gone, as it were. I just cannot get into her or the storyline she may bring to the table any longer.

Timmm
Timmm

Your right. Her and Patrick are adults. Whatever happens, happens. They need to write a story with Emma and the trauma of having her mom here and then gone and then here. The actress who plays Emma is great and she could handle the drama.

dee

It is not fair for Jason T if they keep them together, have them get a divorce, so It will give Jason a story line which he has not hardly had ,a day or two every other week is not fair imo. PlusI would think it would be fun to watch them get back together later on if they actually write a sl that is good, so far that is not been done. Of course we have Lante, and luv luv DomZ but they hardly put him on either. But again, for know lets split them up and see if they have the magic they once had if she decides to stay for longer than a month.

dee
dee

Btw I forgot I do luv scrubs, but I do hate how they do not write for Jason T ,again he has hardly been on since Kim Left, and Teresa being pregnant in real life. I wish she would be on fo a good 6 months or longer but I know she will not, she other plans for hersef which is good, again I hate what been happening to JasonT.

Joanne
Joanne

I think she is returning to bring back Jason which will be played by Billy Miller ex Y&R. also to reconcile with her family. I hope Robin realizes what she left behind because it is easy to replace a man but not your child. I would love to see them get back together the scrubs couple but Dr Drake he is so torn now with a lot of emotion. lets just say he has a lot of anger in him right know he might just turn away from Robin. you know how soaps are. Lol love them together been a fan since the day he started on GH.

su0000

.. Billy Miller will not be Jason..

Billy Miller will not be Jason.. lol

Billy Miller will not be Jason.. .. :):) you will see..
RC would never replace a 22 year vet with another high power soap star, it just would not work..
IF Billy Miller would come to GH, it would never be as Jason, Jason is a stereotyped GH character and not reparable by another stereotyped character, Billy Abbott, nope..

KansasGuest
KansasGuest

In addition, Billy Miller left Y&R because they were unwilling to give him time off to do other projects. Whatever role he ends up playing will allow him more time off than what he did on Y&R. I can’t imagine he would leave one soap to sign with another that demanded as much time. GH’s rotating storylines seem to let actors take more time off.

Rosanna
Rosanna

im happy she is return, if it is short term ill take that, I know she loves directing, cannot fault that, now if she returns with Michael Muhney, he is a wonderful actor who deserves better then what he got.

Rose
Rose

I’m going to reserve my opinion until we find out if her return is short or long term.

Dan
Dan

I’m always glad to have Kimberly back for as long as she’s able to stay. I’m sure some people will blame GH for her not staying long-term, when it’s pretty obvious they are working based on her schedule and her availability. She has a myriad of other projects she’s involved in. But I would rather have her drop in when she’s able than not at all, or with a different actress playing the role.

The speculation seems to be that her return this time will be to help bring in Billy Miller as the new Jason. Time will tell. Will definitely be interesting to watch how it all unfolds.

Mark

Wrap up Scrubs and leave Patrick free and clear to pursue Sabrina . . . or someone else . . .

Emma

Nah. Patrick has suffered enough with Sabrina propping. Have Patrick leave with Robin.

I totally agree. Poor Patrick!

I’m with you Mark!! Enough is enough!! It’s not fair to JT or the fans….

I agree with this.
I hope Sabrina’s baby dying didn’t have something to do with Robin’s return.
Sucks, because you know it will most likely be a short stint!

natalie

I am thrilled now maybe we can have a favorable result after she was torn to shreds and thrown under the bus to prop others. The characters of Robin & Patrick deserve to reunite and have a happy conclusion and the fans deserve nothing less, they have suffered long enough. It is about time!

tali

I agree – hope she comes back with a baby boy or pregnant! I’ll start watching again when she comes back!

Patrick

after she was torn to shreds

let alone… Scrubs was torn to shreds

you said it better…. I exclaimed : I dont know if I can stomach another go round.

the writing was a big omission a glaring setback for the audience

I have some reservations… but if this go round… will free Dr. Patrick Drake… then so be it

she’s already left her daughter… so this time around may be an easier transition to further orbit from : sigh! Scrubs

sign of

have to detach from Scrubs and Emma
now, I’m just happy for mother daughter scenes with Anna and Robin

Ricardo

I heard on the weekend, that Kimberly is coming back. That is wonderful news, it looks like Robin and Patrick will get divorced. I love Kimberly, but Patrick and Robin need to move on. Kimberly is doing her directing, and she is enjoying it. Good for her.

Jeremy
Jeremy

I’m actually okay with Kimberly coming back, short-term to finalize a divorce with Patrick. It’s time to wrap up their relationship. It’s not working. And, I remain a fan of Patrick and Sabrina. I agree, it’s time to conclude the Patrick and Robin marriage, and hopefully they are bringing in Robin to begin to dissolve the marriage, and they need to figure out how Emma factors into it all. I’m missing the Emma/Cameron/Spencer love triangle.
Also, I do admit that I’d like Robin to bring Billy Miller as Jason Quartermaine (not Jason Morgan) back to the canvas, or Billy as a Cassidine. Nicholas and Spencer need some family. Actually, I’d definitely welcome the return of Helena. GH bring back Constance Towers!

su0000
su0000

Kim is returning as Robin so Patrick can divorcee her..
then her fans will be crying and pissoff again when she leaves..
sometimes well enough should be left alone, let her go..

It is known that there is no longer a Patrick and robin.. why upset their fan by having Kim come and go..
Nothing good will come from it..

so here we again, millions of posts all out for blood, sigh (what a circus….

Anna

Not what I heard. Much to your chagrin JT will leave with her in the fall. Scrubs get their HEA.

Patrick

thats funny

perhaps MF should do a count, if you will… on rabid and obsessive fan direct

I think OLTL fans rank right up their
Scrubs is really up their

Michael Muhney major props

there you have it…. top 5 ?

Recast Robin with Elizabeth Hendrickson ex Chloe y&R. She would make a great Robin.

Ive said that myself several times in the past…E.H. is the only actress who i feel could successfully play a recast Robin!

Great idea Maria!

Nonna

Actually jimh introduced that thought way back. Yes, jimh, Elizabeth H. would be the best replacement for Robin–much , much prettier, too. And, a lot more spice and spunk.
As long as we do not end up with another Sam–so lackluster !

Tima
Tima

After her last time around I’m not all that fond of the character and don’t believe she’ll be staying too long. I’m going to assume for now that she’s coming back to end Robin’s relationship with Patrick. I don’t see her bringing back Jason right now since that will end most of the drama between Sam, Silas, and Nina since Sam wouldn’t even think twice about picking Jason over Silas.

Wendy
Wendy

Right you are , agree 100 %

Dana
Dana

I really wish the character of Robin would return for the long term. This is out of character for Robin for Robin to abandon her family. I am also at he point if she is only coming back for a short time write her out for good.

Anna

Of course it is out of character. Cartini did it intentionally to prop their pet.

Ces

ditto.

Wendy

Totally agree !!

Alisha

Excited to see Robin. As long as they repair her relationship with Emma, I will be happy. Patrick has lost any fun in his personality since RC started writing anyway

Cynthia

Thy only way this is great news for me is if she is coming back to give Patrick a divorce so he can move on. Tired of all the coming and going. Hope she stays gone this time at least until she can concentrate on #GH.

Wendy
Wendy

As I always say either break them up , or recast robin

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Long term Robin and Patrick would reunite but i feel this is short term and to bring back Jason(Billy Miller)! Sam and Silas will hit splitsville because of Nina…Meanwhile, Nina sneaks into Sonnys house to kill Ava but by mistake she stabs Carly…Ava finds the stabbed Carly who is still alive but unconcious…Ava pulls the knife out of Carlys back just as Sonny walks in…an enraged Sonny attempts to strangle Ava but she reminds him she is still pregnant and he releases her…Carly is rushed to hospital and her life is saved by Dr.Jason Quartimaine(Billy Miller) who has no memory of his mob years! Carly believes Ava is the person who stabbed her and Ava is arrested but Ava threatens to tell Micheal that Sonny killed A.J., so Sonny gets Ava released from jail! Kiki finds Ninas diary that reveals her plans to get even with Sam, Silas, Ava, and Kiki! Kiki hears someone enter the room and is shocked to see Nina can walk! Nina admits everything to Kiki including trashing Silas apartment! Just as Nina attempts to harm Kiki, Ava appears and shouts’You cant kill your daughter! which we finally learn that Nina did give birth to a baby girl(Kiki) but her mother gave the infant to Ava to raise after Ava miscarried her own child with Silas! Nina has a breakdown and sent to sanitarium where she is befriended by Heather Webber and together make several escape attempts…lol

Timmm

I thought I had too much time on my hands! Good stuff.

FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rather watch your version of GH , then the crap I’m seeing on GH these days.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Thanks Wendy…sometimes while watching GH i often get ideas how some storylines could be much better! Wish tptb read this and use it on the show!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Franco would be a suspect in Carlys stabbing because some believe he is jealous of her relationship with Sonny…4got to add this…at least i hope this happens!

mary
mary

Great ideas. I really hope Jason comes back as a Quartermaine and not a Morgan . I think he was only a medical student when the car accident happened. But on a soap anything is possible. What will happen to Shawn if Jason comes back as Sonny’s head henchman.? Sam and Jason could still reunite because they have Danny.

lizzy
lizzy

just as i said yesterday – you are good – – when you write your first book choose a name that will wind up alphabetically on the shelf right next to Stephen King or a similarly sought after author – – people will find you while looking for them.

joe

Who cares. Robin is one of the most annoying, selfish and self righteous people in GH history. If the actress doesn’t want to be on it anymore they should recast or kill her off. End of story. I won’t miss her because the writers ruined her believability the last time around. Same for Laura. Recast or kill her and shut the door on them!

mary
mary

I agree Robin has been annoying, selfish, and seil-righteous since she was a teenager. Perhaps because her parents abandoned her as a child, just like she has done to Emma. At least, Emma has her father.

shrona
shrona

She is a legacy character but these short, quick comings and goings mess up the story flow and make no sense. If you’re going to go and direct, Kim, then go and direct. Let’s get a great recast who will stay a few years PLEASE!

Timmm
Timmm

Thats it, your right, the stories fall flat after an actor leaves for whatever reason. GH losing Jason and Y&R losing Phyllis has caused problems on these two shows because the characters are still relevant to all the characters who are still on the show.

Wendy
Wendy

Totally agree!!!

Jessica Bennett
Jessica Bennett

KMC keeps returning because frank and Ron ask her to come back. She isn’t begging them to return. If you have a problem with her comings and goings then you should take it up with the head writer and EP.

Rod

DO NOT PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT BRING BILLY MILLER
Robin needs to stay for a while 🙁 miss her & love her on GH HUGE FAN

Timmm

They should have had Sean Kannan play Jason and brought back Billy Warlock to play AJ.

Wendy
Wendy

I never liked billy warlock as A.J. . ALWAYS THOUGHT HE WAS MISCAST . STILL MAD THAT SEAN LEFT GH FOR B&B , BUT TOTALLY UNDERSTAND WHY.

Omar
Omar

Ok..Let the actress come back and close out the storyline of Robin/Patrick. or usher in a recast for Jason..Either way kind of tired of this merry go round with Ms McCulloung..Wrap up the story and move on…She brings huge ratings, so hopefully, there will be a great story to tell , to help the show move and give it closure storyline dictated!!

Patty
Patty

I wish Kimberly was returning for a longer stint, but that’s not fair to her. She has other aspirations and I fully support her lifelong goals and career endeavors! She has always been very generous in returning for the fans and the storyline when it works with her schedule.

If the reason is for closure to the Scrubs love story, I will be very sad, but also know that Kimberly and Jason will knock it out of the park like they always do. They are wonderful acting partners and true friends. Selfishly, I wish Kimberly was coming back to reunite with Patrick, tell him she is pregnant with their child, and take Emma and move away and live happily ever after. I know that would take Jason Thompson off the canvas and away from all the fans that love watching him, myself included. But I just don’t know that I can get behind his character with anyone other than Robin …. certainly not Sabrina.

Either way … welcome home Kimberly! You have been missed as always.

rebecca1
rebecca1

I think her return heralds Jason’s …and possibly the suspended-in-animation Cassadines. I’m wondering if she asked to return to the character once more…to repair whatever damage was done with some of the fans. I’ve stated numerous times that I thought they gave her a plausible, understandable reason to leave…to save the life of a man she once loved deeply and still cherishes. Made sense to me.

So, I think it could go one of two ways. They stay together and after Kimberly’s exit again…they recast. Or, they write her off forever… Not sure which way they’ll go.

Wendy
Wendy

I hopes she returns with JASON !!!!!!!!!

As long as Victor C is coming back with her, I’m fine with it, now if they’ll just give him a story of his own, I’ll be overjoyed!!!

Wendy

Absolutely love Thaao penghlis !!!

David
David

The problem with this is again its for a short term stint. BY Kim’s choice yet when her summer stint with the show is up people will be upset with the shows producers/writers for her departure.

I get the feeling it will be to usher Billy Miller in as Jason and to probably resolve the Robin-Patrick situation. I guess we shall see

Wendy
Wendy

I hope u r right !!! I miss Jason . But I HATE LEVI !!!!!!!!

Tina Gray
Tina Gray

Obviously she won’t be staying long. I think they have to end Robin and Patrick. When she comes back for visits, they can play that they still love each other but Patrick can’t forgive her. This story can last forever.

Rachel
Rachel

Anytime Robin can resurface works for me. If I was writing Patrick and Robin’s story I would have them divorced before she returns. That would allow them to play the Robin and Patrick that I enjoy the most – the bantering, the friction, the I can’t live with you/I can’t live without you storyline. They fabricated this oh so familiar, but still entertaining, storyline better than any other couple on GH. Patrick will still be seething whenever she returns and she’ll probably play up the self-righteousness that she pulls off so well – I’m looking forward to it!

madluv4u
madluv4u

OMG!!! I am so sick of this character! There is nothing, absolutely nothing appealing about Robin. Her acting is flat and stale. Just because you originated a character and have been on a show for many years doesn’t mean squat! Robin comes and she goes within these ridiculous storylines. Kill her off already!!!!! I’m so sick of Patrick being sad and miserable and crying all the d**n time!
I’m willing to give Billy Miller a chance as Jason. He can’t be any worse than Steve Burton. I guess I’m done with my rant for now..

Luke SIperly
Luke SIperly

The thing is her appearances bring the numbers up ratings wise which is another reason they bring her back when they can. While some don’t like her there is obviously an audience that does, probably because they watched her grow up on GH

Wendy
Wendy

Ok I’ll meet u half way when it comes to robin, BUT WHAT DO U HAVE AGAINST STEVE BURTON ?????????????? I am keeping an open mind about billy miller , cuz a recast was inevitable any way.

madluv4u
madluv4u

Dont get me wrong I’m actually an SB fan, but his acting is static. When you play a new character they should have their own movements and style. He’s playing Dillon the way he played Jason. I’m a fan of “acting”. This may be the wrong genre to expect great artistic work but there have been some who have risen above the pack (Robin Wright Penn) comes to mind. She is awesome as an actress now and she was back then on Another World. Like I stated I like Steve though.

Patrick
Patrick

exclaim : “Oh, Lordy”

I don’t know if I can stomach another go around

but it’s Kimberly McCullough

so I’ll go their

Shirley A Miller
Shirley A Miller

I really like Robin (Kimberly McCullough) a lot but if she is just returning for a short stay, that does not make me very happy. I was hoping she would find and heal Jason (whoever might play the part) and stay with her family for more than a short stint. If not, then when she returns, it would probably be best if she broke up with Patrick, leave again, and give Patrick the freedom to find a new partner and stepmother to take care of Emma. I really don’t want Sabrina in the role – I just don’t see chemistry between her and Patrick. But regardless of what I want, it will be what RC and FV decide to do………what will be will be!!!!!

Mike
Mike

Please just stay gone! I cannot stand this annoying whiny entitled character for one more stint!

Cathy
Cathy

As long as the character is true to the Robin I am looking forward to Kimberly’s return! She would never leave her family…GH can make her recurrent n give her outs similar to Tony Geary. Her character is a core family member!

Andrew
Andrew

Jason’s been mentioned a lot lately and so it seems entirely probable that Robin will bring Jason with her upon her return. Wish Robin would stay longer but I’ll take short stints a couple times a year than DeadRobin or RecastRobin.

Marisa
Marisa

Scrubs is all soaped out. No bubbles left with this match! Boring!

Pat
Pat

I know Robin left to save her friend Jason which he has done for her in the past. Yes it was wrong to leave her family again but she is doing it for the right reason. I like the character, I just hope she stays this time or finally ends it for good. I was all for replacing Robin but would rather the one we’ve known forever.

Nancy
Nancy

She needs to make her one last appearance and end it with Patrick.

playagrandma
playagrandma

Oh stop it already-this show keeps getting worse. Why keep bringing her back? Please Billy Miller cannot be Jason-I love him but not as Jason. the writers should have kept Jason. I have all but stopped watching this show. Ome big reason-Michelle Staffords acting has gone down the tubes

jen

I hope robin returns pregnant with their son and they can reconcile and try to move on as a family

sharon

Enough of the swinging door, either stay or go

Timmm
Timmm

Long term or short term, its okay, she is a legacy character and I dont have a problem with her leaving again. She is young and wants to explore other things. Give her credit for doing that. If she comes in with new Jason for the summer, works things out with Patrick, is a mother to her daughter, who cares. She can come and go. They just have to decide what her and Patrick’s relationship will be. If she leaves and is gone next time for a year, you cannot expect Patrick to sit around and wait. He needs a story and a women!

Keri
Keri

Here we go again….if she not staying please put an end to her marriage! I hate seeing Patrick in limbo and JT for that matter. It be such a nice and much needed change for Patrick/JT to smile! That character has been put through the wringer. It is amazing that KMC is getting the chance to live out her dreams of being a director. But all this popping in and out is annoying when it affects the SL and the cast members that are there FT. IMO

Debbie O'Neill
Debbie O'Neill

I would love to she Robin come back BUT not for a short stint again!! It’s too hard to see her leave every time!!!! Bringing back and then her leaving again the last time was AWFUL!!! Totally awful!!!! Bring her back and keep her there or don’t bring her back!!!! PERIOD!!!! Kimberly/Robin has been one of the best actors/character on the show for so many years it’s just not good for the fans to have her come and go all the time!!! BRING HER BACK and KEEP HER!!!

Rob
Rob

If its for the short term, let Robin divorce Patrick and give him something other to do than cry, I read he becomes Nina’s primary care doc so Im looking forward to him with Michelle Stafford….

dmr
dmr

Michelle Stafford has been incredible! I wasn’t sure if I would care for her in this role; but, she is a powerhouse performer! I find Sam and Silas incredibly boring. Thank goodness Michelle is there to liven things up and not speak in a monotone like mono-Sam does. Ugh.

Lisa Wheelet

Keep Robin and Patrick together and bring Jason back for Sam….for a long term they help make the show spark…

This might not be the popular opinion, but I am getting tired of Kimberly McCullough’s short returns. Do not get me wrong, I am a long time GH fan, and love the character, as well as Kimberly in that role, but IMO, I think the short returns end up having to change the direction of the storylines, to accommodate the return, only to have her leave shortly thereafter. To me, this is getting old now.

I respect the fact that Kimberly has been part of the General Hospital family for many years; but, the character of Robin is not my favorite. I don’t care how they wrote Kimberly’s exit, her leaving her family to unfreeze Jason. It’s just ridiculous. It was a terrible storyline, one of which I know is not Kimberly’s fault.

OMG so tired of her revolving door. How can you write story of any substance for someone you never know when they will be there or for how long. With Tony they know when he is going every year and are able to make it work with the story, even sometimes he does extra taping before he goes so he’s not even off screen very long.

Love Kimberly, but for the sake of the show it’s time to recast. Dye Melissa Archers hair brown and bring her in.

As far as Billy Miller goes I don’t care who he as coming as, just glad he’s joining GH!

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
