    I guess you were right because they named the baby Gabriel Drake Santiago on today’s episode.

    You were so close— it was Gabriel Drake Santiago– good use of deductive reasoning on your part—

    I swear I honestly expected the name “Je-SUS!” to be selected, given Ron’s extreme reverence for this character and her kiddo. But the one he chose came darn close in religious imagery….angels and all that.

    Boy that clip is pretty gross. There they are, one big happy family. Emma’s doing just fine with her mother gone. She’s so happy to see Sabrina and misses “HER” so much. It’s so funny to read RC’s interview where he says that people are “irrational” to think that he is putting Patrick and Sabrina together and then watch a scene like that.

    But the best part is watching Emma with Sabrina; an 8 year old who seems to care so much more about her father’s baby momma and their son then she does that her mother is gone. What is the point of those scenes if not to eventually put these three together? The writing on GH is all about plot, it isn’t about relationships and personal dynamics, so this is the movement towards this family, even if it takes a few months after she’s back from maternity leave. If it’s not about plot, what is the point? To irritate Robin fans? I certainly wouldn’t dismiss that as an option.

    Patrick & Emma are ROBIN’s family. Let this whiny, immature twit nurse raise her son with his real daddy Carlos. She has NO business acting like she is Emma’s mom. I will be glad when the blanket baby dies. I don’t want her having ANY kind of connection to Patrick & Emma. Robin loves her family and will be back for them. She fought almost 2 years to return to them and she will be back. It is Robin’s nature to help people and she should not be faulted for wanting Sam & Danny to have Jason back too. Patrick is being selfish not understanding why Robin is doing this. He should be grateful Robin came back to him & Emma and want Sam to have that same happiness.

    I totally agree with Debbie. and I think we are eventually supposed to not like Robin or Kimberly either one. RC will say that this is what the fans wanted–yea right…..

    andrew hass replied

    The baby is Patrick’s and i don’t think that’s going to change ever whether the baby lives or dies.As for Patrick i don’t see him been selfish.As you point out Robin fought for 2 years to get back to Patrick and Emma and then she immediately leaves again.Plus to Patrick Robin’s once again putting her life on the line for Jason.Plus i’m sure Robin will be back one day but that doesn’t mean Patrick and Emma have to freeze their lives until them.Their lives have to move on without RobinAs for Sam and Danny i’m sure Patrick will want them to have Jason back but since Sam is Jason’s wife and Robin isn’t maybe she should have the final say about how to help Jason.

    andrew hass replied

    I had no problem with Emma been concerned for the baby because he’s her half-brother.Plus i don’t see Sabrina and Patrick getting back together unless i missed a scene in which Sabrina has said she wants Patrick back.As for Robin as far as Emma knows it was her mom’s own decision to leave again and hasn’t called her as far as i know.

    ok, let us put aside our feelings regarding the actors playing Robin and Sabrina for a minute and try to see it from the story standpoint. Emma is 8 years old, her mother was gone for 1/4 of her entire life (not that it was Robin’s fault, granted) and during that time Sabrina was there to nurture and comfort her. Of course she has strong feelings for Sabrina. Now her mother (this time due to her own choosing) has chosen to put Jason ahead of her daughter and husband, even when they were in a horrific accident. That is from the story standpoint.

    Now in defense of the storyline, what would you expect the writers to do? They are abiding by Kimberly’s wishes to leave to pursue other projects. Would you have her family pine away for the next year or two until or if she returns? I actually like that someone is showing love and affection for a little girl, who really needs her mother.

    I just don’t understand the constant Sabrina bashing.

    Conniemac: I agree with the sentiment expressed in your first paragraph. Honestly, I don’t blame Patrick for being infuriated with Robin for leaving after being out of his life, and his young daughter’s life for a long stretch of time. As much as I love Robin, I honestly wish she had not come back only to leave again. This was the woman we saw fighting and clawing her way back to her family and when she finally attains her goal, she picks up and leaves? I don’t buy it. I suppose the writers did the best they could given what they were handed. However, the Robin we know and love, the Robin we watched growing up, would never willfully abandon her family. Moreover, the idea that she would go by the word of a Cassadine and not discuss this with her mother who is not only incredibly savvy, she is an expert on matters related to Cassadine, is also not something the very intelligent Robin would do.
    As far as the Sabrina bashing? First, I am so happy you wrote the name of the character and not the name of the actress. Second, the reason so many of us do not like this character is that she was not properly introduced to us before we were expected to care about her. We were supposed to fall in love with her as fast as Patrick did. There was no conflict, build up, no rising action finally leading to a climax (not that kind, the story board kind! ). It was instant romance, instant family. Finally, the character of Sabrina is one dimensional and as perfect as Snow White. Character flaws are inherent to good character driven storylines because it breeds conflict. Without conflict you have no story. Robin certainly was not perfect–she can be a control freak and has a temper. Those imperfections are what made her interesting and what her interesting with Patrick. She was constantly challenging him. Since Patrick met Sabrina he has cried 96 tears. Too many tear drops.

    Harry replied

    I haven’t the stomach to watch these scenes. It’s not just that insipid character which I find so nauseating, it’s that utterly hapless, emotionally wrought look on Patrick’s face. I swear, since he met Sappy he’s cried more tears than all of Barbara Walters’ interview subjects put together.

    Since RC is awfull at coming up with more plausible plot point I made my own up, and in mine robin is still helping out the wsb defrost 3 characters we don’t really need back(Helena , starvos n Jason ). But she skypes with Emma and talks regularly with Mac and Anna, and yes Emma misses her mom but all over this country alone we have people men & women who serve this country were one parent and sometimes both serve overseas and their families are left behind. So that’s what robin is doing and like in real life some families manage and others don’t. We will see how robin comes out of this.

    This is only not about relationships in your point of view because you don’t approve or like of this particular point of view.

    Personal relationships? Patrick was destroyed when Robin was supposedly killed. We witnessed months of Patrick’s spiraling depression.

    We witnessed Emma lose her mother…her frequent heartbreaking questions as to when her mommy was coming home…was she in Heaven, etc.

    We then witnessed Britt and Emma’s fear and well-deserved resentment/dislike of her.

    We were also part of Sabrina’s loving, nurturing nature at a time when Emma needed it most. Not because she was trying to get to Patrick through his daughter…but because she actually loved/loves this little girl.

    Anyone who doubts that can see thru the recent depiction that though Patrick left Sabrina and chose Robin…Sabrina still loved Emma…and Emma her.

    Whether Robin stayed on the canvas or not…comes back or not, Emma will still love Sabrina. Just because she has her mom back doesn’t mean her feelings for Sabrina would end.

    It also makes sense that since she loves her daddy, and Sabrina…and her new baby brother..that that’s where the focus is in the present moment.

    Who knows what the writers will do moving forward. Recast Robin? Perhaps. But for now, due solely to the Kimberly’s decision to leave, they are continuing with story.

    I think it was a warm, loving scene. All three of these characters deserve to be happy and have a family nucleus. Whether Patrick and Sabrina reunite or whether they remain parents to a little boy (should he survive) they’re all connected. And that’s what RELATIONSHIPS are about. There are all types. Patrick and Sabrina…whether romantic or just loving friends…have parented a child. Emma is the sibling This is relationship driven. I think some fans need to get over the thought that the writers write for revenge against the fans. Yeah, a dig or two…like I felt and still feel about the unnecessary murder of AJ. I hated it. Still do. I also don’t like the constant jabs at AJ even though he’s gone. If there is a vengeful motive on that one…I’d tend to think that’s more about Sean Kanan and Ron C’s feud. Immature, but that’s a whole ‘nother story…

    I do not see this scene as gross…Patrick and Sabrina may not have chemistry together but showing them as ‘One Big Happy Family’ as you call them sure beats seeing some character getting shot, stabbed or strangled nearly ever other week…i feel Sabrina was made the star of the show too quickly and not a right match for Patrick(id like to have seen her with Morgan) but its a nice welcome break to see a warm moment like this than a bleak violent episode GH has become well known for…jmo!!!

    Kimberly McCullough left the show, and life goes on. Think about it logically, what are the characters of Patrick and Emma supposed to do, sit in the living room staring at pics of Robin every day, waiting for the day when Robin opens the door and returns home, cause KMC decided to come back to the show?

    Whether they told the story that they did, or wrote another one to explain her leaving, the bottom line is she’s gone. The story and the show has to move on, and I for one have absolutely no problem with it. Love Robin, love Kimberly as an actress, and I hope she’s able to return full-time one of these days. But until then, I don’t blame them for moving forward.

    Reply

    andrew hass replied

    I agree.Yeah the show could have Patrick and Emma waiting for Robin to return but that limits their story options.Plus no matter how the show wrote Robin off she still would have been leaving her husband and daughter alone again.When KMC is ready to return i’m sure the show will write Robin back in but until then the show has to move forward and having Patrick and Emma live their lives without Robin.Plus even if Patrick and Sabrina don’t get back together romantically they share a child.Now the baby could die but that would just mean Patrick and Sabrina will share that loss for the rest of their lives even if they’re not together.

    Mary SF replied

    So true life does go on, however the show shot themselves in the foot sort to speak when decided to undo Robin’s death in the first place. Ratings aside– the story would have been better serve if they left Robin dead or missing until they either knew that could have KMC back for a long term contract or until someone on the show had the balls to recast the role. Now they have to come up with a plausible reason to break this couple up when the characters as they were originally created would never do so, which is why I think some viewers are angry about the way it unfolded. But like you said what is done is done and now it is time to move on.

    @shay…have you “seen” Fas? I was thinking about what she wrote to the two of us…that she learned a lot from what we posted…and then something like goodbye or a bientot? Do you recall?

    Reply

    Shay replied

    No, rebecca1, sadly no sign of FAS….but of course, I recall all her lovely words of farewell. (I keep my best MF postings and replies in a folder, so I can reference them.) It seems that once our friend left for Italy she was truly as crazybusy as she expected to be with her schooling….I’m sure when time permits she will again be online here though! I was even hoping her beloved “Nonna” would visit and give us an update! At any rate, if you are reading this, FAS, you are missed!!!!! Drop us a quick line, okay????

    rebecca1 replied

    Shay…I didn’t know any of this! You must have been on more posts with her…either here or on another site. I don’t know who “Nonna” is…I don’t know anything about FAS…school, Italy, or that she was leaving. That’s why I’d asked if you’d seen her around this board. My only interaction with her was her responses and posts to me.

    Shay replied

    @rebecca1….FAS left for medical school at the University of Milan late last month….she posted on here quite heavily immediately prior to her departure…you must have missed a lot because she was all over the GH threads and on a few other topics, too… we corresponded almost constantly here during May, but this is the only website where I post, so whatever we shared was available for all to see, hence, I assumed you were as up-to-date on her info as I was. She hails from Toronto but her family lives in Connecticut and she has extended family in Canada and Italy….which is why I sometimes added an Italian greeting for her, as well as her grandmother (“Nonna”) who is also a GH fan from way back and would fill FAS in on its history. We sort of hit it off because of our love of in-depth character analyses and the English language, but she was also very much taken with your views on humanity. I truly miss her observations and input, although to be honest, the past month has been so crazy for me that I have not been posting much here at all in comparison to before….I didn’t even watch GH over the last few weeks, save for today’s freaky Luke/Fluke reveal. (And I honestly haven’t missed the daily grind….I’ve been catching up via online recaps, and that was more than sufficient for my taste….) However, I’m glad that I have the chance to touch base with you, to tell you that I’m sorry I haven’t responded more to your recent replies….it was only a time thing for me….I didn’t want you to think that I was at all offended by some of the posts directed at me that were diametrically opposed to my views….I love passionate debate and we do that very well!!!! I still hope to get back to them when the opportunity permits. At any rate, that is the FAS update in a nutshell…I really hope she pops online one of these days to let us know how she is doing, or at least her “Nonna” does likewise. It certainly isn’t the same here without her!!!! P.S. FAS…..we miss you!!!!! ; )

    It is a soap opera story..
    Babies usually die, they are not needed and it is never about the baby it is the drama that comes from them, a story, for the parents..
    He will be given a name to be remembered/spoken of in upcoming stories..
    The baby will die ..

    ((It will be highly wrenching drama!!

    andrew hass replied

    I also think the baby will die for a couple of reasons.Teresa Castillo is on maternity leave for a few weeks and the show will have to come up with a reason for Sabrina to leave town.I don’t think Sabrina would leave her son even if he improves.So if the baby dies then Sabrina can go back to her family in Puerto Rico to grieve for a bit.Plus having the baby die raises the stakes for the driver of the other car.Plus with the baby dying if Patrick and Sabrina reunite one day no one can say they are only doing it for their son.

    In the Twilight Saga, the daughter was named “Renesmee” (combining the name of Bella’s mother, Renee, and her mother-in-law, Esme). So in General Hospital, we could combine the name of Sabrina’s father = ? and the name of the father’s father = Noah . . . but playing around, all I could come up with is: “NoJuan” (just guessing) as in (NoOne, perhaps = Sorry) !!!

    Just name that baby boy, “FELIX” and be done with it, please !!!
