The Internet has been a buzz since last evening after long time General Hospital viewers witnessed the story point where a whack-job Lisa (Brianna Brown) had Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) tied up inside a cabin on a boat as part of her twisted revenge plot. Then, in the unthinkable, Lisa turns the tables, and instead of injecting some drug concoction with her usual syringe happy habits, she instead draws blood out of the arm of Robin. Now as we all know, Robin has been HIV positive for many decades, and that the show has responsibly told the story of living with HIV.
However, in this beat of the story, Lisa’s new rationalization is that since she can’t have Patrick, and since he loves Robin so much, she will inject him with her blood, thus infecting him with the HIV virus. Now, of course, at the end of the episode there was a fight for the syringe. So we don’t know who is going to be injected; Lisa herself, Patrick, or perhaps a drunken Matt who is stumbling around the boat, or none of the above.
Whatever the case, many viewers have found this tasteless and cause for pause to use Robin’s HIV status and the issue of blood as a weapon against someone, namely the man she loves. So what are your thoughts on the story point? Let us know!
