On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, many fans have commented on the well-written and heartfelt scenes between Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) and Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco). What made these scenes carry some emotional weight was that each of these characters had lost the love of their lives. Patrick has lost Robin, and Sam lost Jason. The parallels don’t stop there. When Robin “died”, Patrick and her were very much in love, and she was taken from him way to soon. Same for Sam! When Jason was killed he left a newborn son and a wife, and the couple finally reconciled and were happy again. So the question is, how does one move on with their life and open their heart to a possible new romantic adventure or potential partner?
Sensing Sam is holding herself back from wanting to go on a date with Silas (Michael Easton), and meet him and Kiki and Morgan’s party, Patrick sees that Sam might just be using her son Danny being hospitalized from meeting up with Silas. Sam says, “Moving on is hard, and every time I take a step toward with someone else, …” Patrick finishes her thoughts and says, “… feels like you are moving away … “ And at that point the two bond over the excuses they would use to not to go out on a date, so they did not feel like they were betraying their “dead” spouses!
