As we count down the days till it’s time for us to say farewell to Kimberly McCullough (Robin) for now on General Hospital, (never say never in the world of soaps) the beloved actress took a moment to reflect on her working relationship and professional friendship with her on-screen husband and scene partner, Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) in a new blog post on her website!

In it, Kimberly who titles her blog, “How I love Jason Thompson (let me count the ways)” does give her top ten reasons for why she is so fond of her long time co-star, but also shares sentiments and some insight on some of the elements that help shape Patrick and Robin into one of the most popular couples in soaps of all-time!

Here is an excerpt from Kimberly’s blog on working with Jason Thompson:  “We tease each other a lot. We are both good at that. He’s better. He’s better because he’s  such an amazing observer. To this day, he still teases me about my fake yawn. Apparently, I yawn when I’m nervous or afraid of conflict. I yawn to get out of the situation. How passive aggressive of me, right? Anyway, I notice myself doing it sometimes and have to laugh because he’s so right. Our banter has always been top notch. But in the case of bantering, I’m not sure which came first, Robin and Patrick or Kimberly and Jason. Onscreen and off, it seems like our favorite thing to do. People in the make-up room always say we argue like a divorced couple who are still friends. I’d say that’s accurate.

I’ve seen Jason grow as an actor over the years and cried like his mom when I saw him in his first play. He’s pushed me when I’ve been lazy, which can be a lot of the time. We’ve had to pull off some of the toughest scenes, sometimes we failed miserably but that didn’t keep us from trying again the next day. Together, we built the Robin and Patrick couple that so many fans have grown to love. We have our own convictions about our characters and our characters relationship and have tried to carry that on with our onscreen daughter, Emma. It’s been quite a ride.”

So, what do you think of what Kimberly said and shared about her bond with Jason Thompson? How the duo built the relationship of Patrick and Robin?  Are you sad to know that Kimberly’s final episodes are coming up? Comment below!

    I am really sad that kimberly is leaving gh. By far robin and patrick are the best couple on daytime tv ever. They were the reason i started to watch gh again. I just hope they don’t put patrick with sabrina now that robin’s left if they do i will be really upset. I would just like to wish Kimberly a Happy 36th Birthday today !! and hope that she is enjoying it with family and friends but especially with her sexy bff “Jason Thompson”. If there is anybody you could celebrate your birthday with it would be JT. If any of us had our wish for a birthday present it would be him. He is a hunk and you should hook up with him.

    I totally agree, they are so perfect for each other. You have to wonder why some do hook up in real life and some keep it professional.

    Who would ever think Britt and Morgan would be boyfriend and girlfriend? Go figure.

    I love their relationship!!! Their chemistry is undeniable and unbeatable! I cannot imagine anyone having the chemistry they do – I will so miss Patrick and Robin – they are my favorite couple of all time! Patrick and Robin are soulmates – they belong together, and I HATE the way Robin is being written off the show. Robin would not leave her beloved husband and the child she fought to have for any reason – unless they were threatened! I just don’t buy this crappy storyline that she would leave them for Jason – especially after she fought to get back to them for 2 years.

    I love what Kimberly wrote about Jason – and I am glad that she shared this with her fans.

    Rae replied

    Yes, I do realize that Kimberly is leaving to direct, and I certainly wish her all the best in her endeavors. I just think that there could have been a more believable way to explain Robin leaving – I just don’t buy her going to save Jason over being with her family, whom she has not been with for two years. I hope she comes back eventually and returns to Patrick and Emma. They belong together! No one can fill Robin’s shoes, in my opinion.

    Rebecca replied

    I understand that Kimberly wants to follow her life’s passion to be a director but what I don’t understand is why even come back to the show at all? Why couldn’t you have just left Patrick, Sabrina and Emma to be a happy family? Yes Patrick and Robin have a special bond that comes through to the fans when they are together and that’s why I say “WHY DID YOU DISRUPT THAT?!” You bring her back and then take her away…THAT’S ANNOYING! Any special feelings for Robin & Patrick’s fans have had will leave now because your playing with the fans of this super couples emotions.

    Andrea replied

    She is leaving so she can start directing. Of course, this being a soap opera, they have left it open for her character to return. And in regards to the way they have her character leaving, she is going so she can try and save her longtime friend Jason’s life. I for one like the way this is going because it also gives the writers time to figure out if they will recast Jason or if they will wait for Steve Burton’s contract to be up on the Young and The Restless.

    Jen Lilly successfully…imo…filled in for Kristen Storms as Maxie…so why not have another actress play Robin until KM returns…or do the same for her as the show does for Tony Geary: write stories for Robin that allows her to come and go the way they do for Luke, if KM wants to of course but if not then hire a new Robin!!!

    Her blog was so sweet but heartbreaking at the same time. I hate that she is leaving! Why couldn’t she just film her movie and be offscreen and then come back afterwards! JT and KMC have something magical. They are so good together as Patrick and Robin and I have seen every single Scrubs scene that has aired over the past 8 years. I love them and will always love them. I will never be able to believe Patrick loves anyone like he loves Robin. I hope this really isn’t goodbye. I don’t think I will be able to watch their last scenes.

    Can’t say enough good things about Kimson or Scrubs. Love their deep friendship which comes across on screen.

    I will always want Scrubs even with the hack job being done, purposely, to Robin. Today’s scenes were amazing and Kimberly made me feel for her even with the ridiculous dialogue she had to spew. At least JT got better dialogue which made Patrick look good.

    This couple is amazing and what a loss that they couldn’t share enough scenes or dialogue like today, in the oast when she first showed up on-screen. No one does it better than Kimberly and JT and today they kncked it out of the park.

    Robin would NOT leave Patrick or Emma and definitely NOT after just fighting to get back to them, especially Emma. These writers are a disgrace and I hope GH suffers for it. L. They could have made Robin recurring and be able to do both GH and her ABC directing. Other GH actors and actresses do it. I never did drink t he kool aid with the nurse being given Robin’s life and I won’t buy this is Robin now.

    Even the dialogue was laughable today, Robin was doing this for Jason to be with his son and wife yet she didn’t think of her husband and daughter. Ridiculous even having to type it. ROBIN GETS A FREE PASS FROM ME for the ridiculous disgusting out of character writing by the GH writing team who needs to learn the characters not just write for their pets. They made Anna make an excuse for Franco, another pet, being a victim and then for the nurse, another pet, keeping the pregnancy from Patrick when we all knew in dialogue that she could have told and even Carlos told her she could have told Patrick. Yet Patrick excused that too. Seems only Robin, a GH vet and legacy, doesn’t get a free pass and has to be made to look foolish when anyone knows that is not a Robin. .

    GH has such terrible writing at this point its hard to envision the show lasting beyond its most recently granted extension. Having loved it for decades I wish it weren’t true, but every comment board is filled with complaints from viewers who feel insulted from the stupid writing. Many have wondered if it isn’t being done on purpose so that ABC minimizes the blowback when it finally is cancelled. Robin’s entire storyline (coming back and staying hidden, propping up Sabrina’s POV, now leaving to save Jason instead of staying with her own family) just illustrates the whole mess.

    My do I love my scrubs fans.They are trying to kill us.But I grew up with Kim on screen.Meaning watching her on t.v.She was the only one with some Morals.They didn’t need Maury to open the baby daddy envelope.Robin can be credited for those free paternity test.Loved every minute of it.She also did’nt sleep with all of the men in town.I always respected her character for that.

    jes replied

    It is a soap opera. A daytime drama. Always with the twists and turns. They come and go. The dead rise, children age quickly or they never live or they get cancer or something life threatening . One childs death always means that another child will live. The enitre thing is predictable…
    Kimberly cannot be replaced. Just like Lucy, Scott, Luke, Monica, Tracey, Anna, Robert, Sonny etc. cannot be replaced. They have been around too long.
    GH is a TV show, no different than any other show on TV… Reality TV? A soap opera, Prime time TV has turned into Soap operas, we just have to wait a week to see the next installment.
    I hope Kimberly returns also but she has other plans and if and when she does, it will only be for a short time unless her directing dreams go bad.
    I was mad when Maurice Bernard left the show, He returned shortly then quite awhile later has been back ever since. Same with Anthony Geary, a 10 week hiatis was the driving point of him returning.
    I do have an issue with the writers also. They should watch the past 25 years and should write accordingly.
    Point is, It is a TV show, they cannot please everyone but the writers need to get on track,
    How was Alexis named Alexis when she was 16 and Luke called her Natahsa for years because that was her given name until she was old enough to change it to get away from the venom of the Cassidines? Carly was Caroline and Sonny Michael Corinthos is a junior? His dad’s name is Micheal Corbin.Huh?? It was stated years ago that Sonny changed his name to get away from his father, They dont call him Sonny Michael Corbin Corinthos jr.
    Bitch about the inconsistancies but remember it is a SOAP OPERA. A TV show. Have any of you been watching that long? Port Chuckles?

    I never ever saw adult Robin as anything to get excited over..
    even now, her last days her acting is monotone, very little emotion, and simply bland..
    Patrick and Robin have seen their best days and they are in the past..
    Time changes everything changes even Patrick and Robin..

    ((she is less than emotional enthusiastic in her parting scenes..
    I just do not see her heart in it any longer she has moved on into a different life for her..

    I agree, her acting is bad. She has moved on to a different life and if they don’t want to recast her..then Robin & Patrick must end. Patrick can move on with Emma & Sabrina will be a great mother to Emma AND her and Patrick’s baby…I bet you all thought that Patrick & Sabrina were a great couple too…until Robin came back. Well, Robin does not deserve her family anymore, she didn’t even want to expand it and have another child when Patrick asked her…she doesn’t really love Patrick and Emma is only her daughter when it suits her. Patrick & Sabrina (and I hope they don’t say it’s not Patrick’s baby) need to be THE COUPLE that stays together forever…when and if Robin comes back…Patrick needs to stay with Sabrina have full custody of Emma and divorce Robin !

    There was never a Patrick and Sabrina.He was always grieving is wife.But their will always be a Patrick and Dr.Robin Scorpio-Drake.

    you realize this is a soap opera, how would you like that someone tell you, you do not deserve your family anymore…she only came back for the 50th anniversary of the show…..people do leave shows are presue their dreams just like everyone else …..i’m sure sabrina is a good person but her chemistry with patrick is boooooooooooooooring…..with robin we see a lot of chemistry and fire sabrina….yawnsville….find someone else with the same kind of fire like robin did and can bring out the best in patrick not boring ….

    Joyce replied

    Yes, I do KNOW that this is a soap opera…do you? I have an opinion about the story of Patrick & Robin…and I believe that Robin should have never come back if she was going to leave so soon. I liked them as a couple but I don’t like the STORY of her choosing to leave her family for the reason she did. I learned to like Sabrina with Patrick as a couple more…and they DID bring out the best in each other. I also like Sabrina’s personality better than Robin’s….

    It is their personal relationship that is what makes Scrubs so believable. Too bad Cartini wasted WEEKS of KMc return keeping her away from her family and then making the reunion ask about Sabrina. Stupid.

    So sad that Kimberly is going off the show. I have been watching her since she premiered on the show as a little girl. I wish her and well hope that she comes back real soon. I think the storyline that she is leaving behind will be a good one to come back to!

    I love Robin and Patrick and Emma. And I love the three actors. I’ve loved Kimberly since she was a little girl on the show. But I don’t think it’s fair to the characters or fans that Kim came back for such a short time. The way she is leaving is not fair or true to Robin or fair to the fans. I’m so sorry to say this: But since Kimberly wants to be a director (and I wish her every success in the world, truly) they need to recast Robin.

    Sorry to see KMc departing, but for me, it’s really not the what but the how that is so disturbing….this whole Jason excuse is quite unnecessary, and not one bit believable. How anyone could put a friend’s interest, even a dear friend, over one’s own young child, their flesh and blood, is simply too hard to swallow, not to mention willingly leaving the love of one’s life, particularly after a forced separation of years. This entire scenario has been solely created to make Robin’s character unsympathetic so that Patrick will gravitate back to the insufferable unwed babymama in his wife’s absence. At least that’s what it seems….please prove me wrong, “Cartini,” PLEASE! It has been so wonderful not having to deal on a daily basis with that whining, weeping interloper….she has definitely not been missed, although Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake will most assuredly be!!!!!

    The writers are desperately thinking of any and every gimmick they can to make people tune in – except to improve the writing itself. Showing Steve Burton’s picture as Jason when everyone knows he isn’t returning is just ridiculous.

    I wish Robin had left for another country to solve a mysterious illness that has stricken hundreds including Robert Scorpio…having Robert ill again(with something unrelated to the Cassidines or being drugged ect.) imo wouldve been a more acceptible reason for Robin to leave…even Anna would approve, id think?

    Reply

    Shay replied

    I totally agree, jimh…..in fact before we were “treated” to the idiotic Jason excuse for Robin’s departure, I thought for certain she would be leaving to rescue Robert. It would have been sad to see her go nonetheless, but at least it would have been for the right reason. Speaking of Scorpio, I am still missing him….was a huge mistake to let TR slip away….we had a mostly bland and boring February without him. Other than the occasional bright spots with Victor, Liesl and Delia, the thrills were very few and far between!

  16. Jeff says:

    Kimberly was short-term and it’s still a mystery why she was brought back at all. I don’t get how they’ve made Robin being just a doctor at GH to almost a Nobel Prize winning doctor. Did she study at Cassadine U or something? I mean, come on. I know things aren’t supposed to be plausible when it comes to Soaps, but at least be in the ballpark.

    During her 4 months she was not that actively seen..

    All of her scenes were shot in a months time, or so ..

    She most certainly did NOT shoot 6 months worth of scenes in one month!! She signed a 6 month contract and fulfilled it for that time.

    Robin…Kimberly. I have been watching you since you were a munchkin. I vividly remember some of your first scenes on the show. You were right at the age of my Daughter, Nieces and God Daughters…so I couldn’t help but want to hold you, squeeze you, put ponytails, pinch your cute little cheeks and take you with the girls to their 5th N’Sync concert….lol. Your relationships with Jason–Steve Burton, Tristan and Finola are some of my favorite scenes. You KNOW you will be back. This is your family away from home!!! You really need to get Steve to come back home with you for your re-debut…. While you are gone again, I will daily pray for your return to excite us, root for you, and jump up and down that you came bak home where you belong…with us.
    Cordially YOUR FANS FOREVER. XOXOXOXOXO!!!!

    By the time N Sync was around Robin was about 20 years old. Pinching her cheeks at that point would have been annoying.

    Dear Shay, You need to go back and find the first few years…at least…of Robin, Jason, Sonny and Stone and you will understand. I would do anything for any of my friends and my bff and family and my husband would understand…….not be happy I am gone, but know how I am with people in my life for even more than a day, week, year, or 40 years long. Robin and I are kindred souls and in real life—this does happen and will continue to happen forever. That is the main thing I love about GH…They are real, they deal with society’s true actions and relationships. I have been watching them since I was 8 and I am only 2 months older than GH. They Rock and they have fans regardless of what the characters portray…true feelings…true life. It isn’t just a script……

    Carolyn….As much as I can appreciate your point of view, I still cannot abide the notion of not putting family first. When it comes to parents, spouses, and yes, particularly children, they are paramount in importance to me. How can a mother tell a child “Mommy’s here,” one day, and a few short months later simply say goodbye, gotta go now? I would venture to say for most women, nothing in their power could make them leave their precious ones. If Robin’s situation dealt with rescuing Robert or Anna, then yes, I could completely believe her reaction, but this contrived excuse for her departure is still hard for me to buy. As for her previous storylines with Sonny, Jason, et al in the ’90′s, I was not taken with them at all…that was actually the first time I quit watching the show on a daily basis after being a loyal fan during the entire fabulous 1980′s. (I did love Sean Kanan’s “AJ,” though….) Although I kept up with storylines via synopses and such, and would sometimes still view the program, I missed the fun, adventure, romance, musical tie-ins and sumptuous production values that we were the landmarks of the previous decade….I was really not interested in heavy social issues and their corresponding dramas, not to mention Sonny’s mob stuff that for me took away the magic of GH. (If memory serves, I was much more into “Santa Barbara” at the time….) At any rate, I do not have the same warm recollections that you do of that period in Port Charles, so revisiting it via yet another “Do it for Jason” rescue effort just doesn’t work for me. But I can certainly understand why you feel the way you do about it….thank you for responding and sharing another perspective on Robin’s sad departure.

    I hope the best for Kimberly, but not on GH anymore unless she’s long term. And even then I liked her character better when she was younger. Right now she’s just to holier-thn-thou, and the storyline that she would give up on her family to save Jason is just too altruistic, self-serving for me. And I can’t get excited about her and Patrick…never could.

    It’s hard to move but, it’s time. KMC hasn’t seemed as connected this time around. She & JT always knock the dramatic scenes out of the park, as they did today, but other scenes have felt a little hollow & forced. KMC’s creative energy is about directing now & she should go for it, 100%! She’ll be awesome! As for Robin, it’s hard to believe she’d leave her family for anything after what she survived, but, IMO Jason is her TRUE soul mate & I think she would do this for him or @ least feel the need to try as she does now. Some relationships forged from traumatic stressful times can run deeper than other relationships. They’re not more important, they just can’t be broken. When she told Patrick that Jason saved her life, she really meant it. Jason came into her life @ a pivotal time, after losing Stone & her HIV+ diag. she was very depressed about her future. Robin always credits Jason for putting her back together. She’s always been loyal & defended him, no matter what. She’ll never forsake Jason, so it’s not completely out of character for her to consider VC’s proposal. Her devotion to Jason is why the lab explosion kidnapping worked. They knew she’d risk her life for Jason’s meds. Before she knew she was pg w/Patrick’s baby, she asked Jason to be the sperm donor! W/her PPD & HIV meds issues she went to Jason 1st. It’s not a romantic love Robin feels for Jason anymore; they’ve both moved on. Robin truly loves Patrick & Emma very much & the last thing she wants to do is leave them & hurt them so terribly, but Jason will always have a special place in her heart. They have a bond that runs deep and she would do this for him & he for her.

    I read somewhere that when KM first came back she was going through mourning her dad who had passed away, I imagine that might have had something to do with her disconnect. I’m just thinking that might be some of what was happening. Because I noticed the disconnect with them in the beginning and it was coming back slowly and now she’s gone. Its a shame because I think JT shines when she is around. jmo

    KIM AND JASON are the best couple I have watched next to ROBERT AND ANNA ! It seems at times the stories are so close. Robert leaves robin and Anna raises Robin. Now it is Robin that leave Patrick to raise Emma! But , they are wonderful actors and they both have done a great job in acting. Since Robert and Anna are no longer together please KEEP OUR SCRUBS TOGETHER!! It does not feel right with them 2 apart from each other for to long! GH you have to fix your stories a little bit better!

    My Robin! My Scrubs! Many thanks to Kimberly McCullough for coming back. Good luck in all of your endeavors! But still please come back to daytime soon. Hopefully the GH writers will craft better storylines for Robin & Scrubs that better explain absences. This viewer will be very sad to see Robin (Scrubs) go off-screen for a while. I have to be honest, I only watch GH when Robin, my Scrubs, ScrubsEmma or my Scorpio family are on. When I heard Kimberly McCullough was coming back I marked my calendar and set my phone alarm to come back to being a GH viewer again! So when KMc (Robin) goes…

This is really going to hurt Emma but maybe she can go to Sabrinna and know she is really loved. Robin did not spend much time with her anyway. She was always doing something else. And I would like to know when she learned how to bring people out of a cryominic state. She needs to go teach at some Medical University if she can do all that. HAHAHAHA. will not miss her at all. gld she is leaving.

    I feel the same way. Patrick & Robin always fought over Jason. She is putting Jason above her husband & her daughter once again. What husband would put up with that.
    Just because he was grieiving his wife doesn’t mean he did not love Sabrina. The writers made this story real…I lost my first husband over 20 years ago and I still love him, but, I moved on and remarried (after a while)…what made the story unreal is that Robin came back from the dead. Patrick should move on and BE with Sabrina and their baby along with Emma.

    I am not quite sure where you would have been watching her since she was younger than Emma. Kimberly started on GH when she was 7. The little actress who plays Emma is not quite 6.

    Sorry about the mix up in age. I have been watching Gh for 50 years! Have you been with Gh for 50 years? I was just remarking on how sad I was for her leaving and how sad the story line is going to be for Patrick and Emma and robin. I will miss her.

    What a lovely thing to write. It makes me as a viewer feel better about the show when the actors are so supportive and caring of each other.

    I’ve watched Robin since Kimberly McCullough first came on the show (what a great time that was), and she has been a part of some great stories. A few years ago my teenage daughter walked by during a Robin/Patrick scene, and she started watching for them.

    It’s a pity that the current writers had to trash the character of Robin in these last days. Ruining Robin is not going to make Patrick’s next relationship any more acceptable, less in fact because the bitterness I feel toward the show is going to carry over.

    I LOVE “Scrubs” and always will:) They had me at their 1st scene when Robin caught “player” Patrick doing some nurse or some1 at the hospital. It’s nice and great to hear when a on screen couple are friends in real life. For me as a long time soap fan, it adds a special element in the “super couple” dynamic. Anyway, I didn’t have high hopes for KM’s return, but looked forward to it regardless. For me, I knew the writing of that arc wouldn’t be great and more so since they didn’t say how long she’d stay. Anyway, I get the growth and opportunity for these actors and hope during the next visit she’ll stay for a good while, great story or a happy ending, who knows? Just hoping for the best for her and for next time if she returns. I also love the branched out characters of Anna, Robert, Mac and not to mention Emma.

    I’ve enjoyed since the 80′s the quality and charm of the actors that play Robert and Anna and judging by interviews have passed it down to Kim and then from her to Jason, etc….Not to mention the chemistry between the actors.

    Wishing Kim Mc well, come back soon and make it count:)

    Robin was always better with Jason..

    KMc will not return, she is being polite to say she might..
    She wanted out/killed off her first time out..
    She has moved on from GH and it shows..

    people gotta move on with KMc and leave her with her good bye ..
    her return was bland and her and Patrick are not what they once were..

    I love you Patrick and Robin together. Best chemistry ever. You can’t guess how many times I have watched you guys on You tube. From the first moment together until now. It breaks my heart that you are leaving again, I understand why but it still breaks my heart. I wished you hadn’t return until you was really able to return. Don’t get mad about what I’m about to say I think that maybe they should have recast you until you could return. I know their is only 1 of you but I really don’t want them to put Patrick and Sabrina together. I’m afraid why you are gone they will get closer. I can’t watch it anymore until you return. Poor Emma I know she will be sad, no I can’t watch that. I read what you wrote about Jason that was sweet and he just like I’d imagine to be. Please, Please return back soon and good luck to you.

    Robin promised to keep in touch with Patrick. Will this happen and will the storyline continue with her trying to get Jason back in the story? Or is this not a “real event” happening in the story. Just made up by Victor C.? I see Sabrina being much happier with Carlos whom she really loved at one time. I hope in her inebriation that night, that Carlos really slept with her and she is having his baby. Hardly think so though or he would have told the truth the next day. I have not been a longtime fan of GH. Only since last summer, when believe it or not, my 12 year old great granddaughter got me hooked on it while I was taking care of her. Now I hate to miss an episode. I think the best part of last week was AJ remembering he did not kill Connie. Ava Jerome should get what is coming to her. I never really got to know Robin too well, so I don’t have any opinions on her and Patrick. I love Emma though. Keep the story going with her and her two little boy admirers. Soon they will be teenage. Don’t much care for the part of Molly and her new friend. Rafe is better suited. Now Rick will enter the picture and spoil it for Alexis and Julian. Hope Julian sends him packing back to wherever he came from.

    I enjoy Robin and Patrick as a couple and they really seem like a family with their daughter, Emma. I feel Sabrina, who is pregnant on and off screen, should turn out to be carrying Carlos’ baby. Then let them get married and go back to where they came from. Patrick can surely wait another few months while Robin does her directing and then she will return, hopefully bringing a replacement Jason for Steve Burton, either Michael Muhney or Billy Miller would be my choice. Anyone agree with me???

    I see your point but it really isn’t fair to JT as an actor to have him wait around for something that may never happen. KMC passion is directing so if she comes I can’t see her staying much longer than she just did. If Patrick moves on and she does come back the drama is amp up big time. JT has grown so much as an actor I’m excited to see what happens next. I truly respect KMC but I’m GH died hard long time fan. I loved the drama of Robin returning so I guess we have to wait and see what happens. As for Sabrina I love the character and not fond of Carlos. TC has grown as actress as well. So what ever happens I hope the writing stays good and GH stays on the air…

    Not a fan of Robin much as I was back in the day. I find Patrick and Robin boring now. Some how the chemistry changed since she came back this time. I never really got into the Scrubs pairing and never really took to Patrick until Robin “died”. I’m so happy JT isn’t leaving and excited to see what story unfolds for him. Its nice to see KMC go after her dream as a director that is her passion. I’m sure she will come back which is unfortunate for the long term SL. Only because her true passion is directing. She has said as much in every interview she has given in past years. She growing away from GH which is amazing. I’m sure we all would love the chance to have the opportunity to that for a living. Good for her and I can see her making impact as she does this. She put 25 years on and off of her life into GH. Not many can say that in this industry. So as KMC departs again I hope Patrick spreads his wings a way from Scrubs SL. I just don’t want see JT in a holding pattern again unitil she returns if she every does. There are no guarantees in life. Soaps are all about drama so bring on the drama of him moving on with his life and if she comes back Robin can stir the pot. Any true fan of hers should love to see her fulfill her dreams and any true fan of JT wouldn’t want to seem him wasted on GH just because KMC isn’t there. I feel for Scrubs fans but the show must go on…….

I agree with the person GH writers have developed thru out the yrs, this is in her carachater to save Jason, but if she was fighting so hard to be home for the last few yrs, it should of been about her saving Robert or something. Thought the Frog necklace was gonna be about that when Mac gave it to her from Robert. Anyways hope her real life is successful for her, but we have known her since she was little as Robin and will miss her so much.
