On Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, Jason Thompson (Patrick) delivered an extremely touching performance, in the highly anticipated reunion of one of soap operas legendary couples, when Dr. Patrick Drake in complete shock and at first disbelief, laid eyes on his “deceased” wife Robin (Kimberly McCullough)! And who could forget that first kiss between the duo! Only there was one problem, Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) was having her heartbroken as a overcome Patrick forgets for a time that he had just “married” another woman, who he is in love with too, apparently!
As far as performances, it was a big hankie-filled moment when Thompson’s Patrick, with tear upon tear streaming down his face, was reunited with the woman whom he grieved over for two years! Our chief complaint with this episode, was that the show cutaway to other storylines in moments that many fans have been begging for and waiting for … for months!
Kudos to Thompson and McCullough for finally bringing the long-awaited moment across the plate! Elsewhere, Teresa Castillo as the devastated bride, also turned in a solid performance when alone with Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Sabrina was just destroyed and so much despair over how she and Patrick overcame everything and then … POW!…. in walk’s his “dead” wife. At the end of the episode, Patrick comes to see Sabrina! And the story continues today!
In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Ian Buchanan (Duke) shared some very emotionally charged scenes when Anna told Duke that Derek Wells is Julian Jerome (William deVry), and the pain and devastation the Jerome family caused the couple decades ago reared its ugly head! Anna and Duke discuss the baby they lost at the hands of this crime clan! Anna tells Duke she loves him and doesn’t want to lose anyone else she loves ever again! Anna also admits, she has been where Robin is right now … walking back into people’s lives after much time away and everyone has moved on! The question is, how do you reclaim your life?
