It was not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Well, its finally going to happen on July 2! That is when, according to TV Guide Magazine, General Hospital surgeons, Lisa Niles and Patrick Drake, played by Brianna Brown and Jason Thompson, will proceed to get drunk and have sex, while Patrick’s wifey, Robin, played by Kimberly McCullough, is away in Africa working with AIDS patients.
But, according to GH head writer, Bob Guza this is one plot point in a long arc that will see Lisa becoming quite obsessive over the dashing doctor Drake.
Guza stated, “Lisa is going to get very obsessive with Patrick and we will go into a Fatal Attraction story. This is not a Glenn Close sort of thing. Lisa is not a psycho. She won’t be boiling bunnies. But that’s not to say she won’t be acting out in a big way. Lisa was never able to emotionally let go of that connection she had with Patrick back in school. When that is resurrected for one night — and Patrick says it can never happen again — she tries very hard to accept that. And she fails. Miserably. We have a good long way to go with this story — in fact, we might easily get another year out of it. Patrick’s refusal to continue [having sex] is not what sets Lisa off. Rather, there’s a very small psychological event that will happen some weeks later. It gets her very perturbed.”
The item also reminds viewers that Dr Steven Webber (Scott Reeves) recently took a fancy to Lisa, and Robin’s failure to let go of her first live, Stone, can make this a very complex story. Stay tuned!
