Hard to believe, but Kimberly McCullough’s return to General Hospital is coming to an end, and with that, fans of Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake are trying to put the pieces together to figure out how she will leave the canvas, especially because she just was reunited with her beloved husband, Patrick!  No matter how she leaves Port Charles, Robin’s return was one of the most dramatic journey’s ever witnessed in the soap genre, which kept viewers glued to their set to see when on earth she would return to those she loves!

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with McCullough at the ABC TCA (Television Critics Association) Cocktail Party this past weekend, which was our first opportunity in awhile to talk to the beloved actress about what she thought of some of the emotional story beats that played out on-air!  And of course to find out: is she ready to walk away from GH again when she wraps very shortly?

During our conversation, a candid Kimberly revealed that with her real-life father’s passing during her return to GH, there were some pretty difficult tape days as well, but with the love and support of her co-stars and more, she was able to continue to deliver one of the most heartfelt performances of the past year.  For fans who watched all the emotional re-connections of Robin’s, we think you will learn some interesting nuggets and behind the scenes bits you may have not known before! Here’s our chat with Kimberly!

Robin’s return was filled with so many story points on her journey to get home that viewers were taken on a roller-coaster ride!  What did you think of how it all played out, where Robin met up with each key person in her life separately?  It certainly delivered emotional reunion after emotional reunion.

KIMBERLY: I think that was very smart, because it gave each character a chance to reunite, instead of all at once.  I liked it and thought it was great.

One of the most memorable moments was the scene in the church were Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) sees Robin and runs into her arms!  Do you recall doing that scene … and what you thought of it?

KIMBERLY: What I remember, to be completely honest, is being so proud of Brooklyn.  That was a moment that I felt proud.  It was like a generational thing, that only soaps can do.  Finola was there for me when I was a kid, teaching me and making me feel safe, and now I was just trying to do that with Brooklyn.  It was a really cool moment.  I think it was easy for both of us to do that scene.  I think we bonded.  I am so proud of her.

The line Robin says to Emma is “Mommy’s here!”  And it was one of the most poignant moments in the entire story.

KIMBERLY:  That wasn’t written that way.  It just came out that way.  Personally, I want a daughter so badly.  I want a kid, and so that is what came out of me and my fantasy of having a little girl, and to be able to comfort and make sure everything is OK.  It was a very personal moment and satisfying.

After the wedding shocker where Robin see Patrick again, and Sabrina is devastated in her wedding dress, Robin tells him to go talk to her, hoping that he told Sabrina, that now that Robin’s back, it’s over between them, but he didn’t do that. When he comes back to talk to Robin, she realizes she can’t go home with him, after she worked for two years to get back to the man she loves.   I re-watched those scenes and I thought it was some of your strongest work … you just felt so badly for Robin!  What did you think of that scene?

Courtesy/ABC

KIMBERLY:   I think that I really committed to the scene.  I loved the way that they wrote it!  I was impressed and surprised.  They did not pick the typical, “I am going to go home with you, anyway.”  I knew for them to get to that moment of “no”, there had to be a moment of “Oh, my God.  I can’t believe what was happening.”   I have had moments in my life as well, where it’s been like I feel I am watching a movie.  For instance, a situation where you’re talking to me, but what you’re saying to me is so devastating. And then, everything slows down.  That is what I remember looking at Jason Thompson (Patrick) and his voice sounded like “Waaa-Waaa” (Laughs).   It’s a moment as it was for Robin, where everything slows down and you think, “This is not my life!  This is not happening.”

And as for Jason Thompson, what a performance he gave when he sees his believed-to-be-dead wife for the first time!

KIMBERLY:  Jason is great in everything.  I tried not to think about the pressure of the reunion scenes.   But the great thing is, we can always rely on our relationship off-screen, no matter what.  We know that we trust each other, and it’s never a competition.  It’s never, ever been about, “I am going to be great in this scene”.  We are there for each other, whatever the expectation are, and this is about us always being there for each other in that scene.

You have built this very unique connection with Jason Thompson. And it’s nice to know that in this genre, people can work together and become very good friends.

KIMBERLY:  It’s my way of giving back.  As you know, I had so many people teach me and make me feel comfortable growing up at GH.  They would come from a place of, “I don’t care that your seven years old. You are an equal.”  So when Jason came on to GH, I tried to make him feel like that.  Jason can be super shy, as a person.   So we were able to build something, because if I am working with an actor at the beginning that is cocky, they are not allowing themselves to trust me.  So he allowed himself to trust me, and I trusted him.  It was awesome and that is why we are such good friends now.

There was such expectation of the reunion scenes between Patrick and Robin.   I remember Jason saying to me, he just had to try and keep that out of his mind.  I can only imagine for you, the actress who made the choice to leave the show in the first place, there would have been added pressure for those scenes to be the best they can be.

KIMBERLY:  I always go back to, why is there expectation? Why is there pressure? Well, there is pressure because people love Robin and Patrick.  So, what is that love? That love is just support.   You need to keep going back to … the fans wanted it to be good, because they support us, and you just remember that.  Someone told me once, “Don’t be scared when you walk into an audition.”  When you walk into an audition, they want you to be what they are looking for in the role they are casting. They are not sitting there trying to discredit you.  They are going, “Please just be the part! We want to go home.”   I did not get that until I was on the other side of the camera.

Another exceptional scene was when Robin and Anna (Finola Hughes) saw each other again for the first time since her kidnapping at Wyndemere!

KIMBERLY:  I don’t know if you are aware of this, but we taped the first moment when Anna and Robin saw each other, and then we took two weeks off!  I’m not kidding. (Laughs).   So two weeks later, we do a direct pick-up where we see each other and then we run to each other’s arms.  Finola was great; she was like, “Seriously? Alright. Well, see you in two weeks.”  So on-air, you saw Robin look at Anna, and Anna look at Robin.  That it was “cut”.   Then two weeks later, we had to try to match that, and as an actor that is a very hard acting exercise.

That was another big pay-off moment for the audience. They wanted Anna to see Robin with her own eyes.  Was there any trepidation filming that long-awaited moment?

KIMBERLY:  Again, I would look at Finola, and tell myself,”OK. What do I know, right now?    I know Finola is always there for me.   I can always trust Finola.   She is going to pull it out, and Finola is going to be great.”  So, when she is great, it has the potential of making me great and so it’s fine.

I honestly don’t recall a time on GH, where Robin cried so much like through her ordeal, and rightfully so.  But in the past, sometimes Robin would keep her emotions more close to the vest.

Courtesy/ABC

KIMBERLY:  Well, as you know, my father died the second week I was back at GH.   I had a lot of tears to get rid of, and I had no time to go away, and hide, and grieve.  I have always felt control of my life as an actor, but this last time when I was on the show, I did not feel as in control at all.   If you have seen me cry more that is why.  It was very traumatic, but I had the support of people from GH.  Actually, not that many people knew about it.  I didn’t really talk about it, but they knew something was up.  Finola didn’t really say much of anything, but she would look at me, and go, “You’re good”  And by her doing that, it kept me strong during that time.  I love the people I work with, and even our executive producer Frank Valentini had a moment where he would go up to me and say, “You’re good … you’re cool.”

What did you think of the scene, when after Patrick came home to Robin and Emma, he asked Robin to have another baby with him?  I thought it was odd, and too soon to say something like that, after all the woman just got back to the Drake house from being held captive! (Laughs)

KIMBERLY:  I actually thought Patrick asking Robin to have another child with him was very sweet, and an anxious sort of things that boys do.  I think Patrick was so excited to have Robin back; he was like, “Let’s get this going!”  At the same time though, I really liked Robin’s response which was, “Hey, I just got back. I just want to be with my family.  Maybe we will have another child someday, but just not right now.”  It was a cool pseudo-real life conversation.

Courtesy/ABC

Speaking of babies, some fans are continuing to backlash the character of Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), and especially now with the pregnancy story, since she is having Patrick’s child!   And of course in true soapy fashion, Sabrina realizes she is pregnant two minutes after Robin and Patrick just found happiness again with each other!

KIMBERLY: Well, they won’t now.  When they see how I leave GH, they will be all about Sabrina.   I only have this week and next week left to tape, and then I am done.

How do you feel now that your time is wrapping up on GH?

KIMBERLY:  It feels like it went by really fast.  I am kind of sad, but I am excited because I just got my next directing shadowing project, which is on Grey’s Anatomy, so I will be right next door to GH!  I am really not going anywhere! (Laughs)

I assume when GH writes Robin off the canvas, they will leave it open for her to return?

Courtesy/Twitter

KIMBERLY:  I hope so.  It’s really up to the bosses, but I am always open to coming back. I am doing the Grey’s Anatomy assignment and then I am shooting my film in May.  I do have a lot going on in the next few months.

So GH fans, how do you think Robin will be written off the canvas?  Are you sad to know Kimberly’s time back on GH has come to end for now?

What did you think about Kimberly’s comments on some of the major reunion moments for Robin that we asked to her about in the interview? Were they some of your favorites too?  Let us know!

    I am 68 years old and that will tell you how long I have watched General Hospital. I am sorry to see her go and I have a feeling that the story line is going to put Patrick and Sabrina back together and the reason they have Robin leaving is frustrating and crazy. At this point I don’t really care to watch anything that has to do with Patrick and Robin. I wonder how long they will drag this out.

    I think Robin leaving GH is ridiculous. Why have her come back at all.
    She is the FACE of GH, has practically been on the show her entire life.
    When she exits this time, hopefully it will be for good.
    She is perhaps my favorite character on GH, and honestly without her I don’t have same interest in the soap.
    Robin, leaving her daughter, just awful………
    Make a decision Robin, acting or directing, This story of coming and going is getting old now……..SORRY GH, but I am done with you. No wonder SOAPS are almost a thing of the past………

    I’m with you MaryAnn. When she was told that Jason is alive and just knew they had a tentative date for Robin’s return. I guess not. And is Jason Thompson coming back to GH. I’m still mad at him for leaving under the auspices of more time with his family and “plop” he’s on the B&B or the Y&R in a very stupid kind of ignorant character. I would love to see him come back, but I’m still disappointed that he lied to us when he left.

    Lisa Meyer replied

    Ellen Marie:

    Steve Button played Jason Morgan. Jason Thompson plays Patrick Drake.

    Julie replied

    I hate that she is leaving. It makes me sad for Emma and Dr. Drake. Are the writers going to do the obvious and have him rejoin Sabrina? I hope not. Will we see Robin bring Jason back.
    I am so dedicated to this show.

    I think it is totally unfair to have Robin walk off again like that. It makes you not like her as a person. To me it iscold. Who does that!!! You have little Emma, needing mommy very much and Patrick finding happiness from a really nice woman and then here she comes to claim him only to leave him again. Enough already. She should not be allowed back. Patrick and Sabrina needs to get together and She can go the other way. Let Sabrina be mommy to Emma. She’d make a much better one that Robin. Robin is to selfish and never seemed right for Patrick anyway.

    Reply

    Lisa Meyer replied

    I agree in many ways. The fact that Patrick and Emma were moving on and really very happy with Sabrina-just to have Robin come back and take that all away-then just leave them by choice… That is just a total mind screw for anyone! But a little girl… “Mommy was forced to be gone and we thought she was dead for two years. She swears she never stopped fighting to get back to me/us. But now she’s CHOOSING to ditch us??! I could have had Sabrina for a mommy! Someone who actually would stick around and choose me and daddy over some mostly dead people!!” Come on writers! And having a character like Sabrina try and keep Patrick from knowing he was going to be a father again? That particular character would NEVER have dreamt of doing such a thing, especially to a man she loved so much and believed to be such a great father. Moreover, she certainly wouldn’t have done that to Patrick after what Britt had pulled on him. Come on writers! Pay attention to your character designs! You can’t just suddenly have them be the opposite of what makes them be who they’ve been all along.

    Beverly replied

    I don’t like the way writers are doing the character of Robin, since she wasn’t coming back to stay I wish they would have just left the character as dead. Really, Patrick was standing at the door of the lab when it blew up and Robin at the door. I feel the writers are messing with our intelligence. I am so over all this with Helena and family dying and then coming back, again messing with our intelligence . If story line doesn’t change soon I am not watching anymore. I loved Patrick and Sabrina together.

    What she’s leaving already? When they said she signed a contract I thought that meant it would be at least a one year gig if not more. Now I just feel played– bringing her back just to jack up the ratings in November and then having her written off again. But since I started watching after she left the last time, I am not that invested in her character, but still, thought she would stick around longer than this.

    didn’t have the same efffect….

    now, I have my answer…. short lived
    so… no expectations… other than… the one lasting image…

    Robin’ seeing her daughter again…. and vice versa… that will be my saving grace

    i hope the writers… just leave well enough alone… and give Sabrina and Carlos a chance….

    why shouldn’t Patrick be a playa….??? the resident bad boy…

    he could certainly charm Elizabeth…

    steer trouble for Silas and Sam

    Britt certainly could have some residual… affect

    so… it’s not lost

    quell my sentiment…

    still well up on the emotional level…

    I think she signed a recurring contract, not a permanent one. A recurring contract means she would get paid for her actual time on set as opposed to a straight salary, like Tony Geary, Nancy Grahn, etc. who get paid whether or not they are onscreen.

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    I maybe wrong but I thought recurring actors don’t have contracts, you are either on recurring status, where you get paid per show or contract, where you are salaried– not both. But then I reread Michael’s interview with her in the interview section of this site, and she said she signed an contract, but the length of which she could not comment on– so I guess they knew from the beginning she would only be short term— but you could be right she might have gotten some kind of deal which was like a recurring player but with some added perks given to contract players. But obviously they didn’t want people knowing she wouldn’t be on long, otherwise her return might not have gone over as well.

    KansasGuest replied

    I think anyone who appears on a soap has to sign some kind of agreement/contract. So, in that sense, everyone you see on GH has a contract. But, it’s their employment status that is different. IIRC, Bradford Anderson changed his status from permanent to recurring when his contract ended. “Recurring” status enabled him to still appear on GH & get paid, but not have that yearly commitment over his head that would tie him to the soap if he wanted to leave. Ultimately, he chose to leave.

    It’s probably the same with McCullough. She did indeed sign a contract. But, her status is probably as a recurring player; not a permanent cast member.

    Well we all know it is a soap opera and robin do not write the s/l so why would anyone be pissed at her. I still love robin. she left because she was threaten. But she should have tell her mother or Patrick someone what’s going on. I will not except Sabrina. Her and Carlos need to be together.

    I agree 100%. and for that reason alone I say FU to GH and I refuse to give there sorry asses more ratings by watching them completely DESTROY Robin to pimp the annoying twit and the pairing of Patrick and the twit. what these idiot writers can’t seem to understand is that the twit and Patrick NEVER worked and the main reason for that is the actors don’t have the “it” chemistry. I love Jason and he’s pretty much great with everyone onscreen EXCEPT no offense to the actress who plays Sab but her and Jason don’t have the it factor and the fact that this stupid show felt the only way they could make that pairing work is by destroying a legendary character is a huge slap in the face to us fans of Robin, Scrubs and GH. Its completely uncalled for and ugghhhhhh I HATE GH now. HATE. I still can’t believe Kimberly came back for this sh*t. UGH

    I feel the same way. She came, destroyed some more lives and now is leaving again. It’s been a very long time since we had seen some really happy couple in GH and I was hoping we would be able to see some smiles with Patrick and Sabrina’s marriage, but no luck. In addition to all those psychos and crazy people populating GH this past year, here comes no other but Robin and destroys the future of a very happy couple and family. I still am mad at her pointless show up at the show. Glad Kim is having a lot of success elsewhere, but Robin is unbearable any more in GH. I also think she came off as very selfish, cold, and demanding this time. It was not that Robin we were used to watching for years. Glad she is leaving. Good luck to her.

    Harry replied

    M. I understand what you’re saying and despite loving Robin since seeing her as the impish little 7 year old Robert discovers in his penthouse apartment, I agree with you. What you’re saying, what so many of us have been crying from the rafters is we want CHARACTER DRIVEN stories. We especially want it for our veteran actors. The writing for Robin has been completely out of character and as many others have said, they have sacrificed her character to the Sabrina gods.It’s not going to work.

    kimmy replied

    I absolutely agree with you and she came back even more judgmental than ever like demanding Sabrina stay away from Patrick to me that was really low what she asked Sabrina to do

    Natasha Jax replied

    Agree with “M.” This was not the Robin we knew & have loved since we’ve watched her grow up on the show. As the story line goes, I would expect Robin to return with a slightly hardened personality and definitely some degree of PTSD. That said, I think the WORST thing the writers can do is re-pair Patrick & Sabrina. As far as chemistry goes, I’m sorry but theirs was a Code Blue … Total flat line. I’d rather see Patrick with Elizabeth.

    Tom replied

    That is on the writers since they knew her schedule and should have and could have written a better way for her to be gone for awhile and then she can come back. They do it for others on GH and since ratings went up with Robin’s return and continued with the reveal with Emma and Patrick and then continued to when Scrubs renewed their vows , you would think they would use their brains.

    If the writers are unable to come up with a creative good exit for Robin that doesn’t ruin the character they shouldn’t be writing for GH. Robin has been a great character on this show for years and they should respect the history & the character. Nothing will make me side with Sabrina because I just don’t like the character at all. She is childish and weak and has been propped more than any character I’ve ever seen. It’s sad to see Kim leave again but her directing should come first after giving a good part of her life off and on to this show and still willing to return in the future. Thanks for the memories Kim and thanks for the interview, enjoyed reading it!

    vee replied

    I just think the soap should not be written around an actors coming and going. She has other plans for future. Let her move forward and fill her dream. GH can survive without Robin altho i loved the character. Yes, Patrick chose the wrong one because he was supposed to be in love with sabrina enough to want to marry her and then he turns around with little angst to forget her and move on. Main point is: No one is so important that they should just come and go as they please and stories have to be written around their whelms. That is selfish! Its also selfih to me, if we refuse to accept that its time for a character to move on and grow and allow another character to develop. Just my opinion!

    Right there with you. I won’t watch Robin destroyed and for a pet of the head writer. If a character doesn’t work that is on them and no writer should ruin a legacy character in this case Robin to garner sympathy for someone who doesn’t work. Tired of being forced into liking a character.

    what am i missing here? I thought robin was leaving because she has plans. Robin has grown. She has other dreams. Why are we blaming sabrina? Did I miss something? Robin said she has other plans and wants to fulfill them. She is going to do greys and she wants to produce.. whats wrong with that?

    I cannot believe you are leaving again so soon. I loved it when you came back and that Patrick chose you as he should have. Emma has her mommie back. Now you are leaving. Patrick will be devastated and Emma too. Even if they make Robin look bad in her leaving, that will not make me like Patrick and Sabrina together. You are the only one for him. Guess I will be ff thru scenes of Patrick and Sabrina. Sorry but I don’t want anyone with Patrick but you. I will miss you so much. I have watched you since you came on. I wish you all the luck in what you do, but will miss you. Love you Kim.

    Its hard to say exactly how she’ll leave…maybe she goes to some country suffering from some sort of epidemic and works on a cure? In any case im certain some fans wont accept any reason…but Kim seems to want to continue her directing career…her choice…however, she seems willing for return appearances…if some cant accept this, DONT WATCH!!!

    I think it sucks. They are going to decimate a 20 year character to prop some worthless pet. It has been this way since Sabrina showed up. If KMc thinks her exit will make me all about Sabrina she would be wrong. If they throw Robin under the bus to make me accept a character that doesn’t work I quit and I hope others do too.

    Dori Weiler replied

    Angie, I won’t stop watching but if they pair Patrick with Sabrina I will have to ff thru all scenes of those two together. Sorry. To me she still is the “babysitter”. She just seems so young and immature. I liked her in the beginning and all was well with her being a babysitter because I knew eventually will be back. But now, I do not want them together. He can be a dad and not marry her. I know she will be going to do the research for Jason and that is how they are having her exit but I think they should keep Patrick alone for when she comes back. Don’t put us thru that again.

    Seems they watched during her absence and now that she is leaving again, some wont watch..
    That is too stupid to even make logical sense of ..

    She/KMc will never be staying with GH for the long run, not now with her happily living her chosen career choice, directing.. ..
    I think Robin should be killed off and stay dead so there will be no need to go through this again.. ..

    give us the respect and DO NOT Pair Patrick and Sabrina… PLEASE!

    she’s good with Carlos….. I really do like them together.

    and, lastly, as a gay man…. even, I’m tired of busybody Felix…. I so agree with Brad… he needs to get a life.

  9. Harry says:

    No Kimberly, you’re right on every point, but not when you say viewers will be rooting for Sabrina when Robin leaves. Here’s why–Ron somehow believes that for viewers to like Sabrina he must tear down Robin. Viewers don’t like Sabrina not because they’re Scrub fans or on Team Robin, we don’t care for the character because she has been rammed down our throats. Clearly, she is Ron and Frank’s creation and hence, Sparkle Pony is their pet. And I’m sorry, I am sure the actress who plays her is a fine person, but she just doesn’t have the acting chops to be front and center twenty four seven. She’s just not that good and anyone who knows anything about acting can attest to that fact. We’ve watched Robin grow up–watched her grieve her parents’ death, her first lovers’ death, deal with her HIV status and finally, watched her fight tooth and nail to come back to her family. Giving her an exit un worthy of her so we can root for Sabrina is not only a mistake, it will backfire big time. Viewers aren’t stupid and will resent being manipulated. Viewers deserve better, and so does Robin

    Here, here, Harry! You have perfectly encapsulated the problem right there….our loathing of Sabzilla has NOTHING to do with the character of Robin, and everything to do with the role, storyline and poor acting of Sobby herself! Even if they had sent the Drakes riding off together into the sunset as one happy family and left the nurse in the Port Charles dust, we still wouldn’t want to put up with her! Sadly, “Cartini” just refuses to get it…I don’t know if they are tragically thick or just so contemptuous of the loyal fan base who has tried every which way to communicate to them that their “prized filly” is an unwanted dud. It’s as if it simply won’t compute…..delusional, completely delusional they are

    You people are living in the past. Robin and Patrick no longer have the chemistry they once had. The writers don’t have to make us root for Patrick and Sabrina, there are a lot of us already rooting for them. From what I am seeing, probably more of us (Patrick/Sabrina) than there are of you (Patrick/Robin). I think Kimberly thinks she is entitled to come back anytime and ruin the newer characters just because she is “Robin” and it is “her” home and not theirs. I think the fans have had enough of her. I have watched for thirty-five years. I for one am tired of Robin.

    I have never asserted that “everyone” despises your “girl.” But I do believe that the vast majority of the viewing audience finds her to be totally insufferable…simply witness the feedback (not just here) but in many other soap forums. “Sobby’s” so-called appeal is limited to an extremely small “fringe” demographic, and that is not going to change, no matter how much her little fanclub tries to make it appear otherwise.

    Sigh…where to begin? Yes, we knew her return was temporary. I guess I just conveniently forgot about that when I cheered on the Robin and Patrick reunion. I guess I tried to block it from my mind, but I can’t do that any longer after reading this! She’s leaving…again. (I don’t mean that sarcastically even though it sounds as though I do~!)

    I am not a fan of the pairing of Patrick and Sabrina. I can’t stand those two together. (I need to stress that I’m referring to the characters and NOT the real life actors!) I was never a Sabrina fan. She seemed to be immature for him. (I’m not quite sure that is the correct word I want to use…but I can’t think of the right word) Quite honestly, I never expected to like the Sabrina character BUT that changed when Carlos rolled into town! I VERY much enjoy the Sabrina we get when she’s with Carlos. She speaks up for herself, she doesn’t give in to whatever he wants like she does with Patrick. I’d love to see that relationship develop romantically and give Patrick someone else after Robin is gone…and speaking of Robin, time to get back to her…
    I can see Robin up and leaving Patrick for whatever reason…the baby, the marriage just isn’t working, he has lingering feelings for Sabrina, etc. but I CANNOT imagine any acceptable scenario of Robin leaving Emma. Perhaps that is what KM means when she said the fans will be rooting for Sabrina when Robin exits?

    Hi Harry – I read what KM said; “people are going to be all about Sabrina”. The writers had a 6 month window to tell a story, and honestly, I don’t think any story line, knowing “Robin” was staying for such a short time would have made SCRUBS fans happy, period. As I stated, I’ve come to like Patrina and find myself caring more about them then Scrubs. I have really enjoyed the journey Jason has taken us on these last almost 2 years as “Patrick” tried to recover from his wife’s “death”. Bottom line: FV and RC will never, ever, never please all the fans. It is impossible and honestly, the way people act, seems like a thankless job. Thanks for your reply Harry, we don’t have to agree, its ok, makes the world go round! Grace

    I do not consider myself a GH fan anymore. I haven’t considered myself a GH fan since the 1990s ended. I literally watch this show for a few characters which are Robert, Robin and Brenda. So, I will watch Robin’s scenes and then move on from GH. I don’t think RC and FV have been some kind of saving grace to GH at all. I hate Sabrina, Felix, Brad, Kiki, Franco etc…I even hate Patrick without Robin, he is of no interest to me.

    I do worry that Ron and Frank do not take the responsibility of Robin being an HIV+ character seriously enough and will concoct some exit that does not pay tribute to the incredible gift Robin knows life is and the fact that she treasures her child and being a mother more than anything. However, I can’t get angry at what I won’t see and I won’t see any of it.

    As a fan of KMC from childhood on its nice to hear she will get do what her passion is directing. I’ve been a fan of GH for more years than I like to count. I never really got Into the Scrubs pairing. Never really noticed Patrick until Robin was “dead” maybe because JT scenes were so heavy he got to spread his wings. I was anxious to see what TPAB would have Robin do when she came back. I guess I have to reserve judgement till the SL plays out. Not a big fan of the character Robin since the baby Michael SL but I have enjoyed watching KMC grow up and see what her career has lead her. I totally loved her reunion scenes with Emma, Anna, Robert, Duke and of course uncle Mac. Even with Nicholas. The play on history with Anna reunion scenes with Emma and Robin was heart wrenching . Some of the best in daytime ever IMO. Best of luck Kim and I’m sure will see u back on GH someday.

I think it will backfire and ratings will dip, I’ve heard several people already say they are done with Gh.

    IA!. Patrick was having a baby with Britt a few months ago-and now with Sabrinella. It’s lazy writing. Robin should have returned to him and Emma the day at the Halloween party. And her and Patrick should have gotten together and/or broken up when she found out Sabrinella was pregnant. Or Patrick should have hooked up with Elizabeth when they went out to celebrate for his upcoming nauseating nuptials, and realizing afterwards his true feelings for Elizabeth who has always been there for him and Robin should take Emma and go back to Paris or move to Italy to be with Brenda and Jason (because he’s in witness protection there and he’s Brenda’s roommate).

    Kimberly said long before she returned that when she returned it would be for a short time. I really worried, though I have loved her and Robin since she was a child, that this story would be in the end a big tease for fans. There is no way that Robin could be on the show for a short time and her leaving make sense. Though the first days of the story were great, since then we’re just at the hospital running into Sabrina all the time. From the interview it sounds like they will make us mad at Robin for leaving. I read somewhere else she leaves to help or find another loved one. ??? Will Robert go missing and she goes to find him? She’s not a PI. I see no possible way she can leave and the story be sensible, especially considering Emma. Much as I love Robin/Kimberly, I think she needs to be replaced, until such time she wants to return for at least long periods of time, though I wish her the very best.

    I think they should kill off Sabrina as her character is underdeveloped and I just don’t care whether she bit the apple and died or some other wicked stepmother killed her off. Maybe she should have a run in with Dr. Obrecht. They should have hurried up her return to her family and dissolved her relationship with Patrick. I honestly think he and Robin can still stay married. Why can’t he have an off screen wife that he visits from time to time and cheat on-if he needs to have a love scene, and just focus on his career and Emma if she stays or goes with her mom.

    Honestly, I don’t understand the positive implication from Kimberly how the fans will be all about Sabrina after Robin leaves. I started watching GH again less than two months ago and also some old clips from 2013 including the Nurses Ball. I find the Sabrina character to be one noted and propped. Her interactions with Patrick are awkward, almost like she’s intimidated by him and not as an equal.

    That being said, I hope Robin’s exit stays true to how her character was portrayed/evolved on the show over the last 25+ years. It would be very difficult to accept to see anything remotely uncharacteristic especially for a legacy character.

    I am going to see how Robin’s exit all plays out and try to make a fair assessment. But as Kimberly implied, her fans and the fans of Scrubs will be p*ssed as she pointed out on another interview. Then yes I agree KMc is probably not happy with the way Robin’s storyline is be written out. Keep in mind, Frank and Ron are the ones who are in charge and not Kimberly and will write the story lines (good or bad) that they feel best suited for the show.

    I would love to know why people like the Sabrina character. To me she brings nothing to the show and has zero chemistry with Patrick and the rest of the cast. If anything the writers should explore a Patrick/Liz coupling or bring in another actress that is engaging and can go toe to toe with JT/Patrick once Robin is off the canvas. JMO

    The writers knew the extent of her contract and wasted time with the stupidity of not having her reunite with Patrick and Emma sooner. Then they added another stupid pregnancy story when they just did one with Patrick and Britt. They could work with her contract like they did with others. Kimberly already stated she is willing. Robinncould leave to work on research but destroying Robin for anyone including the pet of RC is wrong. No way would Robinm leave her husband and child after trying to get back to them. Should have known RC was about his pet not Robin since he didn’t think people would want to see Patrick learn what she went through. Nunt wvery atupidity of his ot nurse he showed on screen. Hope this backfires big time on GH and the ratings. NOT watching Robin be destroyed a vet for a pet of the head writer.

    ALSO has anyone mentioned what Kimberly/Robin getting attacked on twitter with vile nonsense from Sabrina and Purina fans yet they mention only Sabrine getting backlash. Works both ways and ALL actors get backlash not sure why this actress and Sabrina attacks are the only ones garnering sympathy. Where is the respect for ALL actors not just the pets.

    Robin has been my favorite character on the show for 30 years. She is often times the only reason I watch and the only reason I take breaks and come back to the show – when I know she is coming back. To think that the writers are going to destroy a legacy character (with legacy parents) and a legacy couple so that fans accept Sabrina and her pairing with Patrick — makes me nauseous. I know I do not want to see that and I will stop watching before that happens. It would break my heart to see people (Patrick, Liz, Nicholas, Emma or whomever) say negative things about Robin.

    I am a fan of Kimberly and wish her all the success that she desires — but I would hate to see something that she has created for over 30 years that is so beloved by many — destroyed for acceptance of another character. I will never be able to support Sabrina!!!

    The propping of Pricess Sabrina will go on. They made the Nurses Ball all about Sobrina & Britch instead of about Robin. They made Robin’s return mostly about Sobrina. Robin came home and Patrick never even asked her about her experience. Robin came home and went off on her own, not even staying with her child. Yes, there were some nice moments, but overall I found the entire story disappointing. I wish Kimberly all the best and will miss Robin. I feel the GH I have loved for 50 yrs is slipping away and morphing into a show I can no longer relate to. Having Robin back, even for a little while, brought MY GH back.

    Sorry, Kimberly, but you are wrong. I will NEVER be all about Sabrina (unlike the Nurses Ball, Robin’s return, and the show in general). I won’t be watching anymore, anyway. Really disappointed in the whole storyline.

    I think it really takes some of the relevance and emotion out of Robin’s return to see her just turn around and leave again. I mean, what was the point? I’m a longtime fan and viewer of the show and it kills me to see my favorites like Robert and Robin and Felecia come back and basically be given very little story line.

She ain’t the only one to get flack over a character . Robin could throw Sabrina down the stairs and I still would not hate her. The only way I will like Sabrina if she leaves Port Charles and take Felix with her. Sad to see KMC leave but she didn’t deserve the crappy storyline she got

    Her comments about it being all about Sabrina after they see how she leaves is very ominous. Her character will be destroyed and her exit will leave a bad taste in fans mouths.

    I just don’t understand why Cartini feels the need to constantly destroy legacy characters and crap on the show’s history and fans. It’s their show now. We get it. Why the insecurity on their part?

    If KMC does leave in that way, and if AJ is on his way to being destroyed and out the door, I think they’re playing with fire.

    And KMC is wrong, it will not be all about Sabrina. Her one dimensional, passive aggressive character and the sobby, over dramatic acting that accompanies it, has not gone over with the majority of fans. No matter how much they prop her, and no matter how much the writing will favor her and depict her as the most wonderful, bestest ever person ever, it is not believable. Yes she will be crammed down our throats, but the character and the actress have neither the depth or skill, to have us buy it.

    If they show a 30 year veteran and beloved legacy character the door by destroying her and making her the bad guy, the fans will revolt. Are Cartini that dumb to think that we just believe what they tell us?

    I wish they would just have Robin go on a medical comference to teach other Doctors about her cure. I am not happy to hear that we are going to be mad. I don’t wsbt to see the character of Emma suffer time away from her Mother, again. If Kimberly is going to be taping “right next door”, then why can’t they continue to bulk tape episodes with her as they do with Tony? I was hoping she would be at the mext Nurse’s Ball, too. The Nurse’s ball is about Robin and I don’t want to see it suddenly become about Sabrina, just because she revitalized it last year.

    It doesn’t matter how she is written off the show, she will always be an amazing actress. From my understanding GHs rating have gone sky high since Kimberley has returned to GH. There is just a chemistry there that she has with the other actors and a story line that people relate to. She will definately be missed and I certainly wish she wasn’t departing, however I do hope the writers keep the door open for her. I love the actress that plays Sabrina as well, but Patrick and Robin are meant to be, just like Jason and Sam. I love watching and (looking) at Silas, but GH isn’t the same without Jason and Sam

    If they plan on having Patrick & Sabrina being able to marry Robin has to exit in a way that her marriage is broken apart.

Especially since her 2 years of captivity have been glossed over.

    I saw Robin the first day she aired as a little girl, so I’ve watched her grow up on the show. As good as it was so see her come back, it still needs to make sense, and to have her come back, just to leave doesn’t. She has a daughter who accepted that she was dead. Now her daughter has to grieve all over again…as do the fans. Either have her come back, recast the part or leave her dead. It was the same with Genie Francis and it was just as frustrating and made for very bad story telling in both cases because stories had to be contrived to fit the actor’s schedules. The fan adjust when an actor leaves, and we do, after a fashion, adjust to a recast…but we or at least I, don’t adjust to bad storytelling that makes no sense…and making Dr.Obrecht the head of GH to fit the story Robin leaving is beyond bad storytelling that really insults our intelligence because it is so obviously written just to fit Kimberly’s departure.

    A departure should have been written better that the way it was written. Like some people said she could have gone a conference, family take a trip. Patrick comes back to work and Emma comes back to go to school. Robin stay a few month and return to here family. Robin was thrown under the bus. I love Robin
    and always will. This bad exit will not make me dislike Robin. Will not work with me. I love you Patrick ,Emma and Robin.

    I’m glad she’s leaving her being there probably caused a lot of stress for Teresa. Since the fans have a lot of hate towards her it’s probably best if she never comes back. Teresa Castillo is a fine actress who has to put up with the crap that is Kimberly McCullough and her fans who r completely crazy to wish that Teresa lose her baby in real life. That and the fact that they are blaming Teresa for Kimberly leaving how ridiculous,. Kimberly only signed a contract that lasted five months. Teresa is pregnant and doesn’t need bashing comments. Kimberly’s character is complex, judgemental and immature insecure woman who acts like a 5 year old toddler and they say Sabrina is childish hoho robin is the childish one whilst Sabrina is the adult. Oh what if Patrick doesn’t love me anymore what if Emma doesn’t love me anymore. U know what hit the road robin and don’t u come back no more no more no more hit the road robin and don’t u come back no more

    I think they will have her exit be tied into Robert. There is no other reason she would leave her family again unless it had to do with her parents. I also think this was a short term return to wrap up the Robin story. There was never any intention of her staying longer. They just had to do something with the story before it became boring and monotonous to fans. Plus I think the Patrick and Sabrina love story is over. Way over. Time to move on.

    Robin’s felt like a visitor this entire time anyway. Honestly, if someone like ME, a big Scrubs fan, was having trouble seeing the connection between Robin and Patrick (post reveal that is), then there was a big problem with the writing. Patrick was off with Robin (which made absolutely no sense given, well, EVERYTHING), Robin felt off in her reintegration in the canvas, and this whole pregnancy mess is just one humungous flop of a choice.

    I’d say I was let down, but I’d have to be emotionally invested and care about GH in any way in order to be. Yes I’m a fan of the couple, and do feel a little used. But my life will continue to go on as usual, mercifully without GH or any feelings of attachment to it.

    I am glad Kimberly came back for just a little while, I just wish the writers didn’t have to ruin the character with the exit (as it seems the bad exit is to prop the other nonsense). I did love all of the reunions, especially with Emma (which I can’t see Robin leaving for anything), and wish we could have gotten a little more Scrubs spotlight instead of the five seconds we got- so much wasted time during Robin’s return. For me, the show has gone in a direction I don’t like, so once Kimberly is gone again, I will be too. I also wish we could have the old GH back – miss it terribly. I do wish Kimberly all the best in her endeavors and hope to see her soon again on GH.

    **Although Michael, I wish you would have asked Kim her thoughts on the writers blantantly ignoring any conversation between Robin & Patrick about the torture she endured during those two years. Those would have been some great, emotional scenes. The writers screwed up there.

    It is pretty obvious that Robin’s return & exit story has been one big propping for Ron C.’s pet, Sabrina. I don’t blame Kimberly for leaving again. And when she leaves, this longtime GH fan will leave with her.

    Sorry to see her go so soon after returning, but I’m glad she was able to return and give a proper conclusion to the storyline. Those scenes with her reuniting with Emma, and Anna and Robert, were some of the most emotional monents I can remember in years. I’m so glad they got a chance to do those scenes. The acting from everyone involved was fantastic.

    This interview should clear up whether it was Kimberly’s choice to leave the show or not, cause I’ve already seen a lot of people here and on other forums blaming GH, like they let her go cause they don’t want her on the show, or something. Which is just silly nonsense. It’s her choice and we should respect her choice. I wish her the best with Grey’s Anatomy and her other projects. Meanwhile, the show goes on….

    Sorry, Kimberly, but WHATEVER Robin does, we will NEVER be “all about Sabrina!” That would be “Cartini”…they are the ones so creepily obsessed with their sainted little unwed babymama that far too much time and energy has been expended to revolve around her, when it would have been just as easy to write her out or at the very least send her away for awhile to give us a break from her relentless sobbing, shrieking and squeaking! I realize Ms. McCulloch is trying to be professional and a good sport about the material to which we are about to be subjected, but even she has admitted in another public forum that we are going to be “really mad.” (My words, not hers, as she was much more colorful…just saying…..) At any rate, hoping to see Dr. Scorpio-Drake again one day, sending best wishes to KMc in her upcoming endeavors and thanking her for rising above a lot of the utter tripe her character was handed…we had some lovely moments with Robin this time around…just far too few!!!!

    Hey Shay!

    I don’t know why I got an email with your response to my post, but I can’t seem to see it posted….???? Do you see it there?

    Anyway, I was going to say I missed you too, and then you made a crack (mind the pun!) about me and Rob Ford and all of a sudden any such feelings melted away :P (though I do believe it’s a bobble head, not an action figure…good heavens the image of that man molded into a superhero of some sort, we may have voted the dufus in, but we’re not that stupid!).

    But back to the topic at hand, I did watch Patrick’s insta-addiction, and even insta-er-detox/recovery. But as soon I heard news of casting two female hospital staff members, I shut off completely. So, in my view, Patrick has been not himself really since RC began his tenure. Patrick shutting down post loss made sense, given his father’s history and even Patrick’s own admission in the past that he would be no different. Even his addiction aligned with what we know of him and his history- to an extent, if it wouldn’t have happened I don’t think anyone would have said it should have been a key part to the story/Patrick. But by the tail end there, it was all jumbled and worse yet, everything miraculously came back together so easily and quickly with hardly any consideration. I do believe you though about what happened to Patrick post Sept 2012. I’ve seen many others say the same. I’m just sorry you had to sit through it and watch. Are you glutton for a certain punishment?

    As for your post above, I’m with you all the way sister! Please join me, save your sanity and just quit. Will the show bring you any pleasure any more?

    Jules….You know my Rob Ford “crack” was only good-natured and affectionate ribbing for my favorite Canadian, right???? As for the “man” himself, I keep up on all his adventures via the UK DailyMailOnline, including his latest elevator escapade and chicken takeaway tearup…and yes, believe it or not, there was a real, full-fledged action figure of “Mr. Mayor.” It was featured around Christmas time in an article in said British publication…do a search, it was an actual fact!!!! Anyway, perhaps all this political chitchat got my last post moderated out of existence or maybe it was the more topical content at hand, although I don’t see that there was anything that offensive about it, or…..it could be that there were SO many negative posts about this particular subject that mine was just skipped over…whatever! As long as you received it, that’s all that matters. But I do follow your logic regarding Patrick’s, ahem, “evolution” into the spineless character he has now become….quite frankly I lost my patience with him during all the addiction stuff, and then when that finally passed and he became shipped with the dreadful “Disney Creature That Ate GH” I just sort of tuned him out for good, and thought how very pathetic. (Little did I know then that he would seemingly never snap out of his stupidity…such a pity!!!) As for why I continue to “torture” myself with this show…well, it does retain some good points! I absolutely adore Dr. O., and her new storyline is going to be such fun, plus I am quite anticipating Thaao Penghlis’ return as Victor Cassadine, not to mention the appearances of Shirley Jones and Donna Mills. Say what you will, but there still are some blessedly talented people featured on the Port Charles canvas, so I simply try to grit my teeth and/or tune out on the days when it all becomes too much mediocrity to bear….but one should not have to do that, now should one?

    That’s favoUrite Canadian ;) .

    No kidding! An action figure? Eeesh. My last hope is that it wasn’t Canadian manufactured. Bobble heads sold out like hot cakes, but portions of those sales went to charity so that worked out.

    Well I’m glad to hear you do still have some bright spots with the show. You haven’t lost your mind…..you just love the characters that have! I know there are many talented actors on GH (I may hate the show with the fire of a thousand suns but I can still be somewhat objective. DAYS and ATWT are my favourite soaps of all-time and I would still argue GH has the best cast of talent of any show) but they don’t make it worth it for me to watch. Alas, I’m not going to add a show that gives me so much grief and frustration and very little to no return when my precious time is stretched thin as it is.

    I stand corrected, my “favourite” Canadian…my bad! (And yes, I should have known better, given all my British reading material….LOL.) Just found your response, so sorry it took so long to reply, better late than never….eh???? (A bit of “north of the border” lingo there…..) Anyway, cannot speak as to the origins of the “Rob Ford Action Figure,” but I do know that we have these dolls for a number of our political figures here in the States, too…probably made in China!!!! At any rate, I am still gritting my teeth during certain GH scenes (and I know you know of which I am referring….) but I must say the return of the deliciously diabolical Thaao Penghlis has been a delight worth beholding, so it has not been a total wash for me….and there are some other good storylines coming to fore, as well. Hence,…..for me the positives are still outweighing the one VERY big negative…thus far. Ever so good to hear from you, too, Jules…keep in touch, even if you have no time to waste on the show anymore….I do understand where you are coming from on that front….I’ve been enjoying “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock” much more than the PC goings-on these days….that quality fix in the evening seems to get me through the afternoon mediocrity for now. Take care! ; )

    It’s hard to believe that ABC or the GH PTB would risk the ratings bump that Robin brought with her. Her popularity & goodwill w/fans was proved with actual numbers that have lasted more than a few days. But, that’s the risk they took bringing an actress back who didn’t want a long-term commitment.

    It will be interesting to watch because Thaao Penghlis, Donna Mills, Shirley Jones & Ilene Kirsten scheduled to appear in the near future. Is that enough to sustain viewers? Or will the double whammy of Robin leaving plus Dr. O being C.O.S. @ GH (pushing the Quartemaines more off the canvas – the opposite of what was supposed to happen) alienate fans to the point ratings take a serious dive to the bottom?

    While I would obviously love for Kimberly to stay at GH..esp since we haven’t really seen much of Robin & Patrick together since her return, but I get she’s going after her passion of directing, which I think is awesome for her! What I really don’t like/understand is why do the writer & director have to make her exit this time be something the fans will probably be pissed about? It seems to me this “love” she goes after comes out of nowhere..& why would she have fought so hard to get back to her family for 2 years if there was someone else? Why make Patrick suffer the loss..in a different way..of his wife again? It would make more sense to me if she went & worked somewhere helping people with HIV/AIDS.. People are always going to want Patrick and Robin together regardless of how they write the exit, but at least make it something a little but more realistic for the character & for the fans watching.
    Also, my mother..who doesn’t ever watch GH watched a little but with me on Monday & it happened to be a part with Sabrina & Felix & without me ever saying that she’s not the best actress, my mom says “wow, that is pretty terrible acting!” So, my thing is, is if an “outsider” of the show can pick up on that, then why can’t the director?! I guess it’s just frustrating that they “baby” the character of Sabrina & want to make her look good with her stories & all, but they are trying to ruin the character of Robin & her relationship she has built..not just with Patrick, but everyone.

    As much as I enjoyed the last year and the Robin Return plot, I find this news upsetting and disappointing. Why come together only to be apart? Why so dramas do this (B&B’s Ridge and Brooke is another example.)? Look, don’t give me a false happy ending. You bring the couple (and the family) together over extreme conditions and within weeks, it’s done? Really? GH could use a solid couple — and it does not have to be boring — and Patrick and Robin and the hospital at the center of the day-to-day, GH has it made! I am not all about the Patrick/Sabrina baby storyline, to be honest. Maybe Robin will leave for awhile and she can come back in the guise of anew actor. Recasts are difficult but this character is a legacy character. And I do believe her future is with Patrick and their commitment to medicine and healing. This and not the mob, as entertaining as it can be (especially with Maura West and Wililam deVry present), should be the the fulcrum of GENERAL HOSPITAL.

    Sabrina needs to die or have that baby be Carlos.Patrick and Elizabeth should be together now. It is what Robin wanted when she thought she was going to die.

In my opinion it’s a slap in the face to be such a major character and leave and then come back long enough for people to remember how they loved the character and then leave again. I love her and I understand she has dreams and that’s great but if she cannot commit 100% to Robin then I hope they keep gone instead of showing back up for a couple months and then taking off again

    No offense to Kimberly I respect her as a actress and a person but I will NEVER be in favor of that stupid twit suckbrina. One of the main reasons for that is no matter how Robin leaves, the fact that the show is more than willing to DESTROY her character of Robin who has been on/off the show for like 30 YEARS is the reason I will NEVER like the twit and specially will NEVER like her with Patrick. NEVER. The fact that they felt the need to do the bait and switch on us fans and make scrubs “reunion” all about the twit and how she felt, make Patrick be her baby daddy and so much more ALL AT THE EXPENSE OF ROBIN, is NOT COOL. I honestly say FU to GH and I wish Kimberly all the luck in the world in her directing career but if I was her I wouldn’t go back to GH ever. They are choosing to destroy a legendary character to pimp a useless character with ZERO HISTORY on the show. That’s IMO a HUGE slap in the face to the history of Robin and to us fans of both Robin and Patrick. Good luck Kimberly but I for one refuse to give GH more ratings and watch how they go about destroying a legendary character for a plot driven annoying, no history at all character like sabriana. I am DONE with GH. DONE.

    I really like Sabrina. She got hosed. I’ve only been watching for maybe 3 years, so I am not as invested in Robin as most viewers, but I can imagine it’s like having Martha Byrne from ATWT leave as Lily. And my heart always broke when the actor who played Simon left Katie on ATWT. I feel bad for the fans. I wish her well! I do want to see Patrick and Sabrina get a chance at happiness. Poor Emma though. As a woman, that writing will be hard to swallow.

    its so disappointing how the show spent and invested so much airtime to tell a storyline thats not going to have a satisfactory conclusion. two years into RC and FV regime and they can’t even give Rebecca Herbst a storyline, thats the twisted sick part, here they have a popular actress on the show and all she’s done for the past two years is played second banana to the likes of Sabrina.

    Since Kimberly is leaving GH again. I really don’t want Patrick teamed up with Sabrina again just because she is having his baby..

And Patrick should be with someone different and I don’t mean Sabrina..

    That would have been better if after Robin had “died” Patrick got involved with Maxi or Liz. That would’ve created tons of drama after robin’s return, and then us scrubs fans wouldn’t be so upset after she left. Because at least Patrick would have someone that Robin thought highly of.

    I haven’t been watching GH, but I tuned in for Kimberly’s return because I like Scrubs alot and hoped GH would do the story justice. I thought Kimberly and Jason were great, all I could have hoped for, and Brooklyn, Finola, Tristan and John York were also great. But the story let me down and alot of fans have already commented on that, so I’ll leave that alone for now. The fact that she’s leaving again is tough to hear, and I can’t say I’m interested in GH with this new pregnancy storyline or with Robin exiting, so for now, GH has lost me again. I just wish Kimberly all the best and hope I’ll see her again soon, and I’m also very sorry for her loss. That couldn’t have been easy for her to work while grieving so soon after her father’s death. If and when GH brings Robin back and writes a story that respects Robin and Patrick’s legacy and their fans, I’ll be back.

    Sheesh…some of you are just out of control. First, yes, I’m sad that Kim is leaving again. If one goes on soap sites or reads the magazines, you would have been aware (I think) that Kim was only back for a short time. This is NOT diminish any of the story that was told. The previous regime was really going to kill of Robin and be done with it. Ok, soap deaths can be reborn too. However, I loved the suspense of everything and how everybody’s performances set the canvas on fire! I don’t feel cheated whatsoever. GH has been on the air for 50+ years and fingers crossed will continue to do so. Many actors have come and gone…Anthony Geary, Genie Francis, Kin Shriner, Vanessa Marcil, Lynn Herring, Kristina Wagner, etc. Yes, I’m upset that Patrick wont fully reunite with Robin but I’m watching GH for the long haul…ever since 1984! The only time I didn’t watch was mainly during the decade Jill Farren Phelps ran the show. I couldn’t take so much darkness, gloom and beloved characters being killed off for cheap plots and to make room nothing else except to prop up Jason/Carly/Sonny. What brought me to GH was when they paired Frisco & Felicia and I loved the show ever since. The essence of GH. No other soap does it for me. I just feel comfortable watching the show. I’ll live that Robn is leaving. I don’t watch the show for just one character. The wealth has been spread around more and no one character is the star anymore. I wish Kimberly luck and look forward to any return she wants. Sorry, but I’m not going to blame her or the bigwigs at GH for ruining my life or the fictional characters on the show. Some of you take this way too seriously.

    At first Kimberly had obviously signed something but it sure wasn’t a contract. I believe Kimberly had a falling out with Ron from the start. Kimberly is not coming back. She was given her walking papers back in October. GH films 3-4 weeks in advance so when Kimberly aired, she probably had already been told what was up before hand. Ron has stated that Robin will not be reliving the trials and tribulations of Robin’s kidnapping and that it will happen off screen. Fans are now starting to blame Teresa for Kimberly being fired and it is wrong. I wish Kimberly all the best of luck in her directing career.

    I think it’s a great testament to Kimberly that ratings shoot up when she returns, and that so many comments some flooding in every time you, Michael, interview her!! From my point of view, Robin is one of the most natural and believable actors on GH. She’s a legacy character with ties across the canvas. I’m truly sorry to see her leave.

    It must be said that Ron Carlivati did not maximize the story potential with her return. I was disappointed, similar to the last SEVERAL returns of Vanessa Marcil. I must conclude that Ron just doesn’t get couples right!

    Back to Kimberly, I’m thrilled at her burgeoning directing career! More power to her and her talent. I will follow her wherever she goes.

    Finally, about Jason Thompson, I’ve seen him really grow as an actor during his first 6 years acting alongside Kimberly. HOWEVER, this past year without her has been surprisingly boring. I really started the year wanting to see how he would do and follow his story lines. But by the time just before Kimberly returned, I had tuned out of his scenes. Jason’s a good actor, no doubt, but his chemistry seems limited to Kimberly. She, on the other hand, had very popular story lines with Robin-Stone, Robin-Brenda, Robin-Sonny, Robin-Patrick, Robin-Sonny, Robin-Anna and Robin-Robert.

    Completely agree with you. Kimberly doesn’t get the credit she deserves. To me, when an actor has chemistry/is engaging with everyone their paired with whether romantically or not, it shows that the actor is very generous/collaborative in their work.

  103. GH Viewer says:

    What I’ve seen in most of these comments is the viewers discontent for Sabrina. These feelings of discontent seem to come mostly from long time viewers who are all about the history. They hate the propping of Sabrina using a vet like Robin, which I get but do not necessarily agree with. I am not a long time viewer, on and off for like 9 years now. I can stopped watching GH for years, but happened to catch a random moment with Sabrina and Patrick and I was enthralled by them. Just like that I was hooked back onto GH, but for their and Maxie’s scenes only. Chemistry is all subjective, so while some think Patrina have it, some don’t. Sometimes I see more people are vocal about one particular pairing over another, which I noticed has only been happening in the past 7 or so years. The level in which people express their disgust of a character is astounding to me. Even if they are just characters on a screen, must viewers will such ill feelings. Like sometimes it takes awhile for characters to grow on you, and not meant like a fungus, because guess what Rome wasn’t built in a day. It may take years and a variety of wonky storylines for viewers to get on board with a particular character, but maybe just maybe people should simply ride the wave instead of wishing that the boat will roll over and everyone will drown.

    Okay rant over.

    Speaking only for myself, I totally resent the propping of this character (especially) on Robin’s back since day one. I have never seen anything like it and I have watched this General Hospital since the days of Steve and Jessie sitting on my grandma’s knee. Now, from the exit interviews, they are going to destroy Robin so Sabrina looks like Mother Teresa (no pun intended). I wish KMc all the success in the world, but I care about Robin, the character. There is no way Sabrina will ever “grow on me” because she has been rammed down my throat for a year.

    I’d be fine with Robin leaving if I knew we’d trade it for more vet front-and-center time with Anna and Duke, et al, but it’s gonna be more newbie and twentysomething heaven for those who like that instead and gobs of Sonny/Carly/Franco, the new dream team which isn’t enough of a change from the Guza days for me. It feels so much like a little bit of this and a little bit of that goodness tossed in with the above elements. How about some Real Change from this new-ish regime? How about taking the most compelling, mature elements of the show and really striving to please the 40-50 something fans who’ve taken the time to pop back into the show. Cause the younger fans seem to like the mature characters quite a bit on social media just like I did at their age. And please stop trying to make the villains the forefront of the show like the Jeromes and Dr. O. They have their place but don’t make them the POV of the show. If we had one great storyline I would shut up too but it all seems to be shallow in the end.

It’s tired and played out and the whole cast needs to move on. I was no fan of Patrina but I quickly became one when Robin returned! We need to get back to the excitement that GH lost w/ the return of that character. Overrrr it.

    I think the only logical thing to do is have Robin go do some research in regards to her cure for Luke’s disease. Maybe Victor Cassadine can fund it or something like that.

Patrick needs to stay married to Robin.

    This show has literally jumped the shark for good. When did all the psychos and mobsters take over the storylines? Why can’t they have good character plots that actually MAKE SENSE?…I mean, I know it’s a soap, but seriously, they have turned it into a freak show, bordering on the absurd. There are way too many peripheral characters that don’t add any value to the show, like Sabrina, Felix, Carlos, Britt, Franco, Obrecht, and so many others who have monopolized air time at the expense of more veteran characters. The Patrick/Robin relationship was/is the last true love story on the show and I wish the writers had enough sense to give Robin an exit worthy of the incredible legacy she is leaving. Love KM and JT together; their chemistry is so natural and effortless. Oh well, we will always have the Scrubs archives…been re-watching all the Patrick and Robin episodes since they first got together…magic:) As for GH, I spent the last 20 years being a devoted fan, but I think they’ve lost me now that they have completely destroyed the best modern day love story on daytime television.

I sometimes get sooo caught up, that I have to remember this is only TV…but that being said, I think they GH should keep the story line of Patrick and Robin going by bringing in a replacement Robin! Although it wouldn’t be the same as Kimberly,but it would make more sense to the fans being that Robin just returned after 2 years in captivity! What makes people love the soaps is when they make SENSE, and who would actually leave their family after just returning? I would prefer to see Patrick with Robin, but I didn’t mind the idea of him and Sabrina, being that he thought Robin was dead…at least Sabrina was a better choice than Britt! Although I Love Kimberly, and I hate to say this, but I don’t like it all of the back and forth. People had gotten used to Robin not being there anymore, and then she comes back only to leave again…..Either STAY or GO…but stop flip flopping….that does nothing for the ratings!!! How about I just play the part of Robin until Kimberly returns, at least that would keep Patrick and Robin TOGETHER!!! :-)

    What a waste ….. I have been watching GH for 30 something years and Im sure I hated a story line before but this one has made me write about it … so what about Patrick he needs to date… Sabrina and Carlos need to give it a try. The worst and the reason why they should have never brought Robin back if she wasnt going to stay is EMMA!!! what kind of mother is away from her daughter for 2 years and then leaves again.. I have no respect for her character at all now. This is 2 mothers taken away from Emma now….. I hope Robin never comes back. And while Im on it give LULU back her baby Seriously!!

    Robin is one of the best Actresses on GH. Her connection to Patrick is heartwarming, and looks so sincere, loving, and very authentic. Emma’s acting as Robin and Patrick’s daughter is excellent. They really seem like a very happy Family. I also love Robin’s relationship with her Mum, Anna. I hope Robin does return to GH in the Future. Dee O’Donoghue. Washington, DC.

    I wish they didn’t let her return to just have her leave. The storyline is awful and makes no sense, How many times can she leave and come back? It is a bit stupid now. If she wants to move on, then do it and move on. GH will survive without her, it has all the other times.

    I love the character of Dr Robin Scorpio Drake. I am very sad to see her leave the show thinking we will never see her on GH again. I am 62 years old then watch GH for at least 35 or 40 years. Use to run off the school bus so we could watch GH at 3 o’clock p.m. Then. obviously
    ..after watching GH for that long, I can do nothing but
    ..wish her the very best. And pray for blessiings that she can have the little girl that she wants and de.serves. God bless you Kimberly

    I have been watching Kimberly since she first appeared on GH as Robin. I was so glad when she had returned to GH to be with her husband and daughter. I don’t want Patrick and Sabrina to gather even if she is having his baby. The writers should write in that she lose the baby. I mean I know that she is having a baby in real life, that means that she will be leaving soon anyway. Then what is Patrick going to do then. I really think that it is unfair that Robin is going to leave her husband and her daughter to going off to save Jason who may not even be alive. SHE NEED TO STAY WITH HER HUSBAND AND DAUGTHER.

    I have Watch Kimberly (Robin) Since the day she came on, while I will miss her being on GH I am tired of her coming and going so much. Perhaps it is they way she comes and goes I do not like, which I guess would be the writers fault. I hate the fact that Emma is the one who gets hurt the most in this but Sabrina is great with her and I think this is where the storyline should go. It would be nice if just ONE family on a soap is normaly happy, lol

Thanks for the clips of her as a little girls… you have come a long way superstar. I hope you make it back to GH even once a year for a month or two… as long as GH is on the air. Long live Robin… Long live Kimberly and long live GH. One of the best show ever.

    Well…I have some definite feelings, here. I have loved seeing Kimberly grow up on television and I love Robin with Patrick. However! As the audience, we were so glad to see her character return and reconcile with her family. That was a lot of extreme drama to go through. And now, after a few months, she leaves again? Why did she bother to return? It does smack of a back-handed ratings sweep. While I wish Kimberly nothing but the best, I would rather see her character replaced, after a while, with another actress. This is like Genie Francis all over again. Now you see her; now you don’t. No thanks, I’d rather not go through that again.

    It’s sad that Kimberly is leaving once again. I think she should chose which career she wants, directing or acting. Sometimes you can have both but it leaves the role of Robin teetering back and forth. Perhaps it is now time for GH to recast the role of Robin as they will be doing for Jason. Eventually, the fans buy into the new person and as we all know, everyone is expendable.

    I grew up watching General Hospital and recall when Robin first came on the show. My all time favorite, and most emotional moment on all Soaps is when we thought Duke blew up and watched little Robin scream in anguish. I contined to watch GH through the mid 90s and over the past 15-20 years, I catch up during holidays and vacations. Although I an now a 6 weeks a year fan, I appreciate how GH is able to attract new loyal fans and still keep the occasional “old head” watcher interested enough to spend an hour watching.

    I was actually happy to see Robin return even though I barely knew she was gone. I enjoyed her emotional scenes with Patrick during the holidays. I’ve enjoyed watching them during my unexpected snow days (like yesterday and today) and think they have the making of the top iconic couples in Soap history. Sabrina doesn’t appear to have the maturity in her actions or appearance to create the same kind of chemistry as Robin. Thus, the story line doesn’t have the same fire as Luke-Laura-Holly or Holly-Robert-Anna. It would be unbelievable for Patrick to go from the heartbreak of Robin leaving back to Sabrina. And, since he picked Robin over her, Sabrina knows forever that he doesn’t have the “I can’t live without you” kinda of love for her that great soaps are made of. In the 80s, you knew that Luke and Laura were going to be legendary (even if GH ruined it). Holly and Robert were amazing together. Brenda and Sonny initially had a fire about them. And, Robin and Patrick have chemistry. Sabrina is sweet but doesn’t have the depth of the “best soap couples”. The solution is to have a heart breaking miscarriage that makes her a little crazy then introduce a handsome, hunky young actor to mend her broken heart and nurses her back to mental health. Keep her sweet, but give her a little edge because of the experience of losing her first love and a miscarriage.

    As for Robin and Patrick, let him be the devasted father committed to his daughter that he needs to be. Kim McLaughlin is a director, which means her character can come back again in the summer and GH can write a story line that has her leaving periodically as she has projects. All My Children did it for years for Susan Lucci when she went off to do plays, TV movies and Dallas. As long as she can tape scenes for November and March sweeps and occassionally through the summer, all will be good.It’s TV they can make it work and they will. And, Kim can have it all. She can stay on GH and be a director/producer behind the camera.
