Did anyone notice that when Robin was talking to Carly on the show,when she called Carly by her real name instead of Carly,Carly busted out laughing.

I liked it, Xai. That was the cutest faux pas. Lol.

I just hope that Y&R will (wisely) SORAS (when the time is right) little Katie and cast Brooklyn in the role.

WOW what a way to reunite Jason and Brooklyn! That would be great!

A well-known soap journalist has already posted an article urging JFP to do this! That would be a coup for Y&R, and a real blow to GH.

I think a Delia Miracle recast!

I just watched the episode I thought it was well done with the time constraints that they had the flashbacks were a nice touch.

The flashbacks were terrific!

The flashbacks were the best part of it. Also loved the vows to Emma. Otherwise it was so brief and oddly edited with weird jumps to the Laura/Tracy/Nik/Hayden scenes. Robin had hardly any face time with Mac and Robert. Why? Poor Felicia got to say nothing. Why did they make Maxie “forget” the minister and the rings? That’s not like Maxie, the Super Wedding Planner. They could have simply said that she planned, with Mac, for Mac to get ordained online. That would have been a nice touch. Also, feel like Epiphany should gave been a wedding guest. She’s been a big part of Drake Jr’s life!

Loved the flashbacks–wistful–to think we saw none of another legacy couple–throwing some shade at Tony Geary’s “misconduct.”

Where is Robert Scorpio?

I guess Robert must have taken the picture. Love the picture…yes, BRAVI and KUDOS but, shouldn’t have Tristan been included in the Scorpio-Drake family picture?

Timmm

He barely said goodbye to Robin. Odd.

He gave her away. Mac officiated.

I mean, in the picture? Shouldn’t Robert, the father, have been included in the picture?

Jason Thompson’s scene partners were primarily Kimberly, Brooklyn, and Finola (not including “non-family” members like Liz or Sam). He barely had any scenes with Tristan Rogers over the years, esp. since Tristan has barely been on the show over the years, sadly for us Robert Scorpio fans.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, Jake R. With all due respect, the ‘heading’ specifies, “Jason Thompson posts Scorpio-Drake family photo”. FAMILY photo. Robert Scorpio is, indeed, the Scorpio patriarch . Without him there would not have been Robin Scorpio. It makes no difference how long or how often Tristan has had contact with Jason. We are talking about the characters, not personal friendships. If it was not Jason’s intention to include Tristan, as Robert, then the wording should not have included ‘Scorpio-Drake family’, either. I am strictly talking about that….difference of opinion, I guess. Have a good day.

Elizabeth

My sentiments exactly. Why no Robert in the pic.

Kevin

Despite the title of the photo, the comment seems to reflect the professional relationships of the actors – and Robert just wasn’t in that sphere as often, unfortunately. I don’t think it was meant to slight him; just an actor’s photo of those closest on the set in his storylines & keeping it “all in the family.” Makes sense to me 🙂

What a beautiful send off for Patrick, Robin and Emma Drake. I loved their story line and I will miss them on GH. Wishing them all much success in their future endeavors.

Very sad Patrick, Robin and Emma will be missed. But, at least you can watch Patrick on Young & Restless. My very best to Patrick.

Just started recording Y&R since so many of my favorite soap actors have been cast there. I feel like I know the rudimentary back stories on most of the characters since I read the soap mags. Shouldn’t be too hard to catch up hopefully. Enjoying the show so far, though never liked those show runners when they were at GH.

Lin

I certainly hope we will see this family again. At least Kmberly and Brooklyn visiting. It sounds like definitely Brooklyn will visit.

Will truly miss Patrick,Robin, and Emma Drake. They were the ultimate supercouple of GH and were the reason I watched GH since they got together back in 2005. Can’t wait to see JT on Y & R it should be interesting. Hopefully when the timing is right for Robin,Patrick,& Emma to return to GH for a future storyline they could convince Y& R to let JT come back as Patrick even on a recurring basis. That would make the scrubs fans really happy . Wish they could have gotten Rick Springfield to come back for Jason and Kimberly’s final sendoff that would have been awesome. Love the family photo.

Thank your lucky stars Scrub Fans that these characters were not on Days, otherwise instead of a happy family reunion that leaves the door open for a return some day, they would have all died in a plane crash on the way to California —- so grateful for a happy ending for a change– it was cheesy and predictable but at least it ended on positive note — for now anyhow.

Timmm

Well first, it was amazing to see Robert, Anna, Robin, Patrick, Emma, Mac and Felicia in the same room. It has got to be years since all the Scorpios have gathered at the same time. Now we only get to see Anna and maybe a little of Mac and there they go! Sad but happy to see them all together again. It was also nice to see Carly and Robin hug it out! They have a checkered history with lots of finger pointing but like Robin said today, she loves Sonny and Carly is good for Jason and those two men mean the world to Robin so why not Carly and Robin be friends. Bury the hatchet because they have two things in common! Second thing, on these shoe string budgets its tough to make weddings grand. well, this being in the Drakes household would be nothing spectacular BUT Patrick and Robin exchanged their vows to Emma and I thought that was really cool and different. Too me, another positive notch in the new writers belts. Thank you!

Elizabeth

I would also include Maxie in that group.

Timmm

I did think of her when I was thinking of Mac and Felicia but Maxie doesnt really have a strong connection to Robert and Anna.

Tristan

Anna is Maxie’s godmother; this is a relationship that should be more often acknowledged.

What I loved was the genuine emotion we saw from all of the actors in the wedding scenes. You can tell that JT, KMc and BS will all be missed, and how much they will miss GH. These are the moments I live for on a soap and they’re very rare. It was a beautiful wedding and the right way to send off the Scorpio-Drakes. Well done, GH, and all the best to the three actors as they leave GH for greener pastures.

I really hate to see these guys go! I loved the story line of Robin, Patrick, & Emma! I hope they can come back on GH sometime, & do visits. Best of luck to all. Love to all. 🙂 A devoted GH fan.

At least Patrick and Robin, with Emma in tow, got married again for the scrub fans, and the emphasis was all on them. But the rest of the wedding party seemed like window dressing except for a couple of wrap-up conversations between Robin, Carly, Liz, and Jason. I realize it was short notice, but no music, laughter, festivity to speak of…Maxie where were you? Robert barely had a line, looked like he was on a lunch break from Y&R, and only one daddy/daughter hug…sorta…and then folded chairs and pulled a luggage piece outside. Felicia warmed a seat…that was all. Nothing between Anna and Robert…no glances, smiles, hugs, hand-holding for this occasion or each other. Where was Ephiany (sp?) for Young Dr. Drake? And I don’t think inviting Sam would have been such a bad idea since she helped hold the fort down while Robin was gone, and between her and Patrick formed at least a friendship and bond when both realized how they felt about Jason and Robin at about the same time.

this is one of the best episodes i have seen in a very long time – it was so nice to see the scorpio brothers together & also great to finally see felicia – it was so sad to see the drake family walk off the screen for the last time but i am thrilled they got their happy ever after because after all they went thru they totally deserved it…………
i will keep this episode on my dvr

i forgot to say that epiphany should have been included because she loved her some “drake jr” and robin…………………..

The thing I like most about this interview is that young Brooklyn obviously does not have a psycho stage mom like Kris Kardashian! Brooklyn said that she is only allowed to watch Jason’s scenes on Y & R. She also said she doesnt have social media. It is very nice and rewarding to hear of a child being protected and loved rather than profited from and exploited!

Agreed Dylan…. you watch and see… she will be cast in many things, she is so adorable and obviously a major talent.

Thanks, Kimberly–for remember us fans–we love your class. Hope next year is a good one for you. Godspeed and take good care.

I really thought the whole wedding thing was so fast without planning didn’t give it much of a wedding affect. More like a get together. Who ever said Robert was excluded from family photo was totally correct. Robert definitely should have been in that photo. Don’t understand why he was not included. Epaniphy should have been there for Drake Jr. It was nice but so unorganized. Needed much more planning and togetherness. Will miss little Brooklyn such a great little actress. Not much reason to watch anymore. Can’t wait to see how he does as Billy Abbott. Really liked Billy Abbott when it was Billy Miller. This is a big character change for Jason Thompson. I’m sure he will do great but it is so hard to get used to anyone playing Billy Abbott but Billy Miller. Good luck Jason. Just one question though Why would you leave such a good show as General Hospital to go to boring Young and Restless?????

Breaking News

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.

Nina attempts to stop her, but it’s too late,  Next thing you know the cabin is engulfed in flames? Who will get out of there alive?

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
