Oh boy!  Does this mean we need to get out the hankies soon?  Probably, since Kimberly McCullough (Robin)  is set to leave GH in the very near future!

In honor of Scrubs, (the very popular duo of  Doctors Robin and Patrick Drake), SOAPnet will make it a Valentine’s Day to remember as they celebrate the February holiday with a General Hospital marathon featuring beloved couple Robin and Patrick in four special one-hour episodes.  The marathon airs Sunday, February 12, from 3:00-7:00 p.m., ET/PT.

The following episodes will air (all times Eastern and Pacific):

3:00 p.m. — Episode 11170 – A determined Patrick shows up outside of Robin’s window and declares his love. She finally succumbs and admits she loves him too. Original airdate: November 7, 2006.

4:00 p.m. – Episode 11677 – Robin and Patrick’s daughter, Emma, is born and they introduce her to the family. Original airdate: November 4, 2008.

5:00 p.m. – Episode 11712 – In front of their family and friends, Robin and Patrick are married. Original airdate: December 29, 2008.

6:00 p.m. – Episode 11961 – Robin and Patrick share a special celebration in honor of their first anniversary. Original airdate: December 29, 2009.

Absolutely love the choices, but had there been room for one more episode, I would have loved May 29, 2006, the first time they made love.

The night they were together when Robin was grieving for Georgie was a good one too.

I will miss their love story. They give it their all.

I love that they’re having a Robin & Patrick marathon, especially in light of Kimberly leaving GH. However why is it only 3-7? They could have included the first time they met or some other influential pieces in their relationship. I really hope as Soapnet slowly disappears, they continue to have more marathons with episodes from years past. 🙂

I would have preferred a full-on Robin marathon. McCullough had some rich stories worth revisiting prior to Patrick’s arrival in Port Charles. As she makes an exit, it would be nice to see this legacy character’s evolution from an earlier point in time.

This is music to my ears. GH has not been known in recent years for their romance, but one couple has managed to shine brightly through the darkness, and that is Scrubs. I am excited to see that Kimson and Scrubs are getting much deserved attention.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
