132 June 23rd, 2014 Kimberly McCullough Returning To General Hospital!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Here comes Robin!  Yup, great news today first via Kimberly McCullough herself!  After departing General Hospital over four months ago, the fan favorite is now returning to her old stomping grounds to reprise the role of Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake!

McCullough tweeted a picture of a stack of pages from a script and then  noted: “A day in the life of a soap actor. Say ‘soap-y’ I dare you. #notthewholescript #onlymyscenes.”

Later ABC Soaps In Depth confirmed via General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini that Robin is returning to the series this summer!

But the questions remain!  Is Kimberly just returning to officially play out the end of the Scrubs romance with long-time scene partner Jason Thompson (Patrick) on a short-term basis?  Or, will they reconcile, so therefore Kimberly stays on the show more long term?  Or, is something else at play here?  Will Robin bring Jason home to PC? Indications are thus far that McCullough’s return is for a shorter stint, not a long one.

So, what do you think of the news of Kimberly returning again to GH?  What do you hope happens to the relationship of Patrick and Robin?  Let us know!

    I do not see Billy Miller being cast as hit man Jason lol ..
    I believe If, again, IF, Billy Miller were to come to GH he would not be cast as Jason, no way..

    Are you on drugs. lol. Billy Miller would rock as Jason Quartermaine. Mark my words , Billy will be the new Jaon. Suoooo go make trouble on another site. LOL.

    William replied

    We all know Kimberly won’t be back longer than a month.

    Her No. 1 goal is to be a movie director. This won’t be long at all, peeps.

    Mika replied

    The latest rumors are that Billy would be nuLucky! Much more age appropriate.

    Wilda Kerney replied

    I think that when Jason was “lost” he might have changed and no longer feels the need to kick ass and take names later.

    harry replied

    Su00, at least you didn’t say,”if that happens, I will eat my hat” as I don’t think straw is easily digested.

    Patrick replied

    as good and superb an actor as Billy Miller is….

    he’s only as good as the cast around him.

    ie: when Y&R was in it’s hey day….

    he had Adam, Victoria, Jack, Ashley, Jill, and so on and so on

    if he is cast as Jason Q…. and which one? the Q doctor or Sonny’ henchman

    I so hope he’s not saddled with Sonny’ lot…. it’s not good enough

    Sonny, Michael, Kiki, Carly, Olivia, Franco, Morgan….

    you can see the difference…. it’s NOT going to work

    even with the likes of Sam… who’s barely pulsating any thing… I don’t know… I get that she was magic with Steve Burton… but come on…. look alive

    if he’s the Q doctor…. I can guarantee … the writing team… only bring on Tracy and Monica enough… when it’s bait hook… and switch… to highlight and bring vets on to assuage the long time audience

    I really and truly want him back as Matt….

    the acting troupe this would bring… is serious big time stuff… to savor

    Patrick, Matt, Britt, Nina, Kevin, Dr.O, Madeleine, Nathan….

    just suround him with quality like

    and it’ll pay off in spades

    one would hope…

    the writing on GH is better than Y&R

    Nonna replied

    I agree.

    Timmm replied

    I see him as Dylan Q.

    Elhu replied

    Steve Burton will always be Jason to me, but since that is not an option now, I truly see Billy Miller playing the part very well, and think he will join the GH cast in that capacity.

    Why is this conversation about Billy Miller and Steve Burton?

    Nobody notice it’s about Kimberly McCullough coming back (when she’s so obviously not wanted!)?

    elhu replied

    As a lonnnnng time GH fan, I love Robin (and Kimberly too), but the leaving and returning is getting old, and temporarily forces changes to the direction of the story line to accommodate the return, and then the exit.

    Cathy replied

    Love Robin and welcome Kimberly back home any time she can. I believe in the fall for ratings she will be back LONG term.

    It is more than obvious there will be no Sabrina and Patrick, when she returns..
    RC pulled out of that couple..
    When she left she got a cheeky kiss bye from Patrick, friendly but not a love couple..

    so no worries of Patrick and Sabrina..
    what will happen is;
    Robin will return and Patrick will divorcee her..
    it is written so shall it be.. :)

    Reply

    Cathy replied

    SO SHALL IT NOT BE! Scrubs are the story even when Sabrina was in the picture. I don’t think divorce since he will look stupid as she isn’t vacationing instead she is saving a person who saved her. She forgave him for lisa and even though she doesn’t need forgiveness for ANYTHING let alone saving a person that saved her, he can man up and support Robin. Be sides, if Robin didn’t save Jason people would be complaining and now she saves him and people complain. I just am waiting for Scrubs to reunite they re the Supercouple and SCRUBS will ALWAYS BELONG TOGETHER.

  3. Anita Pinser says:

    I’m ecstatic that Kimberly is returning but since her main interest is directing I think it’s time for closure for her character with Patrick. I wish she would have a longer stint on GH but it’s not fair to her fans. I do wish she would return for good, but at least we will see her this summer

    Reply

    Wilda Kerney replied

    I think you are right! I have watched her grow up on the show and would really miss her; but it is time to let Patrick go and come back for christening; weddings; funerals; unforeseen medical complications etc LOL

    I love Kim as Robin, but enough’s enough with this leaving/returning/leaving/returning game she’s playing. She’s a life long soap actor who’s acting career never took off for the most part. We all know the soap genre might not be around forever. Why not just ride it out with GH and enjoy the nice payday while it’s still there and then try the directing route? Sometimes I feel as if these artists don’t think logically when it comes to financial matters.

    Reply

    KansasGuest replied

    I think she IS thinking logically in transitioning to directing right now. If KM can give some closure to Robin’s relationships in PC while getting paid for it, that’s good financial planning. Better for her to depart on good terms with the cast & crew, & start her directing career when she wants to than to have to rely on directing as a fall back position. I get the feeling when watching her, too, that she’s had enough of acting. She started so young. If being behind the camera is more interesting for her, there’s no reason to not take the leap now when her career momentum is in that direction.

    Rosanna replied

    she is not TIRED of acting she simply wants to do other things such as directing, her leaving and coming back is no big deal, it`s funny when Tony Geary is off for 3 months NOBODY says anything but yet Kimberly is called selfish etc etc, it`s life people change all the time and this is NO different!

    janice replied

    I agree…I adore KM, but the last couple of time (just in my opinion), her heart was not in her acting. All good things must come to an end and it sucks, but I wish her the best what ever she does. Will be glad to see her back and I hate it when she leaves, but I guess we don’t have any control over that

    Aaron replied

    Good point. Guess I never thought of it in those terms. I just figured she’ can make way more full time at GH over the next few years than she can directing .

    brzz replied

    When Kimberly reprised her role back in 2005 or 06, she said ABC agreed to help her with her directing career. So I think the return stints are beneficial to all parties. Her fans are happy, the execs are happy with ratings bump and Kimberly is happy. I love seeing Robin on my screen

    Reply

    Nonna replied

    You are so right. I realize this is a soap, but the writers should try and make these stories as realistic as possible. The damage ( if it were real life ) of what this ” now I’m here now I’m not ” can potentially do to a child emotionally, is downright cruel and often irreparable. This behaviour, from a paren, is a detriment and can really play havoc with a child’s psyche. Robin should just disappear completely, and never come back. As much as I like her, I neither anticipate nor savour her reappearance with bated breath as I did in the past. I guess the thrill is gone, as it were. I just cannot get into her or the storyline she may bring to the table any longer.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    Your right. Her and Patrick are adults. Whatever happens, happens. They need to write a story with Emma and the trauma of having her mom here and then gone and then here. The actress who plays Emma is great and she could handle the drama.

    dee replied

    It is not fair for Jason T if they keep them together, have them get a divorce, so It will give Jason a story line which he has not hardly had ,a day or two every other week is not fair imo. PlusI would think it would be fun to watch them get back together later on if they actually write a sl that is good, so far that is not been done. Of course we have Lante, and luv luv DomZ but they hardly put him on either. But again, for know lets split them up and see if they have the magic they once had if she decides to stay for longer than a month.

    Reply

    dee replied

    Btw I forgot I do luv scrubs, but I do hate how they do not write for Jason T ,again he has hardly been on since Kim Left, and Teresa being pregnant in real life. I wish she would be on fo a good 6 months or longer but I know she will not, she other plans for hersef which is good, again I hate what been happening to JasonT.

  5. Joanne says:

    I think she is returning to bring back Jason which will be played by Billy Miller ex Y&R. also to reconcile with her family. I hope Robin realizes what she left behind because it is easy to replace a man but not your child. I would love to see them get back together the scrubs couple but Dr Drake he is so torn now with a lot of emotion. lets just say he has a lot of anger in him right know he might just turn away from Robin. you know how soaps are. Lol love them together been a fan since the day he started on GH.

    Billy Miller will not be Jason.. .. :) :) you will see..
    RC would never replace a 22 year vet with another high power soap star, it just would not work..
    IF Billy Miller would come to GH, it would never be as Jason, Jason is a stereotyped GH character and not reparable by another stereotyped character, Billy Abbott, nope..

    Reply

    KansasGuest replied

    In addition, Billy Miller left Y&R because they were unwilling to give him time off to do other projects. Whatever role he ends up playing will allow him more time off than what he did on Y&R. I can’t imagine he would leave one soap to sign with another that demanded as much time. GH’s rotating storylines seem to let actors take more time off.

    im happy she is return, if it is short term ill take that, I know she loves directing, cannot fault that, now if she returns with Michael Muhney, he is a wonderful actor who deserves better then what he got.

    I’m always glad to have Kimberly back for as long as she’s able to stay. I’m sure some people will blame GH for her not staying long-term, when it’s pretty obvious they are working based on her schedule and her availability. She has a myriad of other projects she’s involved in. But I would rather have her drop in when she’s able than not at all, or with a different actress playing the role.

    The speculation seems to be that her return this time will be to help bring in Billy Miller as the new Jason. Time will tell. Will definitely be interesting to watch how it all unfolds.

    the writing was a big omission a glaring setback for the audience

    I have some reservations… but if this go round… will free Dr. Patrick Drake… then so be it

    she’s already left her daughter… so this time around may be an easier transition to further orbit from : sigh! Scrubs

    I heard on the weekend, that Kimberly is coming back. That is wonderful news, it looks like Robin and Patrick will get divorced. I love Kimberly, but Patrick and Robin need to move on. Kimberly is doing her directing, and she is enjoying it. Good for her.

    Reply

    Jeremy replied

    I’m actually okay with Kimberly coming back, short-term to finalize a divorce with Patrick. It’s time to wrap up their relationship. It’s not working. And, I remain a fan of Patrick and Sabrina. I agree, it’s time to conclude the Patrick and Robin marriage, and hopefully they are bringing in Robin to begin to dissolve the marriage, and they need to figure out how Emma factors into it all. I’m missing the Emma/Cameron/Spencer love triangle.
    Also, I do admit that I’d like Robin to bring Billy Miller as Jason Quartermaine (not Jason Morgan) back to the canvas, or Billy as a Cassidine. Nicholas and Spencer need some family. Actually, I’d definitely welcome the return of Helena. GH bring back Constance Towers!

  14. Tima says:

    After her last time around I’m not all that fond of the character and don’t believe she’ll be staying too long. I’m going to assume for now that she’s coming back to end Robin’s relationship with Patrick. I don’t see her bringing back Jason right now since that will end most of the drama between Sam, Silas, and Nina since Sam wouldn’t even think twice about picking Jason over Silas.

    Long term Robin and Patrick would reunite but i feel this is short term and to bring back Jason(Billy Miller)! Sam and Silas will hit splitsville because of Nina…Meanwhile, Nina sneaks into Sonnys house to kill Ava but by mistake she stabs Carly…Ava finds the stabbed Carly who is still alive but unconcious…Ava pulls the knife out of Carlys back just as Sonny walks in…an enraged Sonny attempts to strangle Ava but she reminds him she is still pregnant and he releases her…Carly is rushed to hospital and her life is saved by Dr.Jason Quartimaine(Billy Miller) who has no memory of his mob years! Carly believes Ava is the person who stabbed her and Ava is arrested but Ava threatens to tell Micheal that Sonny killed A.J., so Sonny gets Ava released from jail! Kiki finds Ninas diary that reveals her plans to get even with Sam, Silas, Ava, and Kiki! Kiki hears someone enter the room and is shocked to see Nina can walk! Nina admits everything to Kiki including trashing Silas apartment! Just as Nina attempts to harm Kiki, Ava appears and shouts’You cant kill your daughter! which we finally learn that Nina did give birth to a baby girl(Kiki) but her mother gave the infant to Ava to raise after Ava miscarried her own child with Silas! Nina has a breakdown and sent to sanitarium where she is befriended by Heather Webber and together make several escape attempts…lol

    Great ideas. I really hope Jason comes back as a Quartermaine and not a Morgan . I think he was only a medical student when the car accident happened. But on a soap anything is possible. What will happen to Shawn if Jason comes back as Sonny’s head henchman.? Sam and Jason could still reunite because they have Danny.

    Who cares. Robin is one of the most annoying, selfish and self righteous people in GH history. If the actress doesn’t want to be on it anymore they should recast or kill her off. End of story. I won’t miss her because the writers ruined her believability the last time around. Same for Laura. Recast or kill her and shut the door on them!

    I agree Robin has been annoying, selfish, and seil-righteous since she was a teenager. Perhaps because her parents abandoned her as a child, just like she has done to Emma. At least, Emma has her father.

    Thats it, your right, the stories fall flat after an actor leaves for whatever reason. GH losing Jason and Y&R losing Phyllis has caused problems on these two shows because the characters are still relevant to all the characters who are still on the show.

    I wish Kimberly was returning for a longer stint, but that’s not fair to her. She has other aspirations and I fully support her lifelong goals and career endeavors! She has always been very generous in returning for the fans and the storyline when it works with her schedule.

    If the reason is for closure to the Scrubs love story, I will be very sad, but also know that Kimberly and Jason will knock it out of the park like they always do. They are wonderful acting partners and true friends. Selfishly, I wish Kimberly was coming back to reunite with Patrick, tell him she is pregnant with their child, and take Emma and move away and live happily ever after. I know that would take Jason Thompson off the canvas and away from all the fans that love watching him, myself included. But I just don’t know that I can get behind his character with anyone other than Robin …. certainly not Sabrina.

    Either way … welcome home Kimberly! You have been missed as always.

    I think her return heralds Jason’s …and possibly the suspended-in-animation Cassadines. I’m wondering if she asked to return to the character once more…to repair whatever damage was done with some of the fans. I’ve stated numerous times that I thought they gave her a plausible, understandable reason to leave…to save the life of a man she once loved deeply and still cherishes. Made sense to me.

    So, I think it could go one of two ways. They stay together and after Kimberly’s exit again…they recast. Or, they write her off forever… Not sure which way they’ll go.

    Anytime Robin can resurface works for me. If I was writing Patrick and Robin’s story I would have them divorced before she returns. That would allow them to play the Robin and Patrick that I enjoy the most – the bantering, the friction, the I can’t live with you/I can’t live without you storyline. They fabricated this oh so familiar, but still entertaining, storyline better than any other couple on GH. Patrick will still be seething whenever she returns and she’ll probably play up the self-righteousness that she pulls off so well – I’m looking forward to it!

I’m so sick of Patrick being sad and miserable and crying all the d**n time!

    The thing is her appearances bring the numbers up ratings wise which is another reason they bring her back when they can. While some don’t like her there is obviously an audience that does, probably because they watched her grow up on GH

    Dont get me wrong I’m actually an SB fan, but his acting is static. When you play a new character they should have their own movements and style. He’s playing Dillon the way he played Jason. I’m a fan of “acting”. This may be the wrong genre to expect great artistic work but there have been some who have risen above the pack (Robin Wright Penn) comes to mind. She is awesome as an actress now and she was back then on Another World. Like I stated I like Steve though.

    I really like Robin (Kimberly McCullough) a lot but if she is just returning for a short stay, that does not make me very happy. I was hoping she would find and heal Jason (whoever might play the part) and stay with her family for more than a short stint. If not, then when she returns, it would probably be best if she broke up with Patrick, leave again, and give Patrick the freedom to find a new partner and stepmother to take care of Emma. I really don’t want Sabrina in the role – I just don’t see chemistry between her and Patrick. But regardless of what I want, it will be what RC and FV decide to do………what will be will be!!!!!

    As long as the character is true to the Robin I am looking forward to Kimberly’s return! She would never leave her family…GH can make her recurrent n give her outs similar to Tony Geary. Her character is a core family member!

    Jason’s been mentioned a lot lately and so it seems entirely probable that Robin will bring Jason with her upon her return. Wish Robin would stay longer but I’ll take short stints a couple times a year than DeadRobin or RecastRobin.

    I know Robin left to save her friend Jason which he has done for her in the past. Yes it was wrong to leave her family again but she is doing it for the right reason. I like the character, I just hope she stays this time or finally ends it for good. I was all for replacing Robin but would rather the one we’ve known forever.

    She needs to make her one last appearance and end it with Patrick.

    Oh stop it already-this show keeps getting worse. Why keep bringing her back? Please Billy Miller cannot be Jason-I love him but not as Jason. the writers should have kept Jason. I have all but stopped watching this show. Ome big reason-Michelle Staffords acting has gone down the tubes

    Long term or short term, its okay, she is a legacy character and I dont have a problem with her leaving again. She is young and wants to explore other things. Give her credit for doing that. If she comes in with new Jason for the summer, works things out with Patrick, is a mother to her daughter, who cares. She can come and go. They just have to decide what her and Patrick’s relationship will be. If she leaves and is gone next time for a year, you cannot expect Patrick to sit around and wait. He needs a story and a women!

    Here we go again….if she not staying please put an end to her marriage! I hate seeing Patrick in limbo and JT for that matter. It be such a nice and much needed change for Patrick/JT to smile! That character has been put through the wringer. It is amazing that KMC is getting the chance to live out her dreams of being a director. But all this popping in and out is annoying when it affects the SL and the cast members that are there FT. IMO

    I would love to she Robin come back BUT not for a short stint again!! It’s too hard to see her leave every time!!!! Bringing back and then her leaving again the last time was AWFUL!!! Totally awful!!!! Bring her back and keep her there or don’t bring her back!!!! PERIOD!!!! Kimberly/Robin has been one of the best actors/character on the show for so many years it’s just not good for the fans to have her come and go all the time!!! BRING HER BACK and KEEP HER!!!

    If its for the short term, let Robin divorce Patrick and give him something other to do than cry, I read he becomes Nina’s primary care doc so Im looking forward to him with Michelle Stafford….

    Michelle Stafford has been incredible! I wasn’t sure if I would care for her in this role; but, she is a powerhouse performer! I find Sam and Silas incredibly boring. Thank goodness Michelle is there to liven things up and not speak in a monotone like mono-Sam does. Ugh.

    This might not be the popular opinion, but I am getting tired of Kimberly McCullough’s short returns. Do not get me wrong, I am a long time GH fan, and love the character, as well as Kimberly in that role, but IMO, I think the short returns end up having to change the direction of the storylines, to accommodate the return, only to have her leave shortly thereafter. To me, this is getting old now.

    I respect the fact that Kimberly has been part of the General Hospital family for many years; but, the character of Robin is not my favorite. I don’t care how they wrote Kimberly’s exit, her leaving her family to unfreeze Jason. It’s just ridiculous. It was a terrible storyline, one of which I know is not Kimberly’s fault.

    OMG so tired of her revolving door. How can you write story of any substance for someone you never know when they will be there or for how long. With Tony they know when he is going every year and are able to make it work with the story, even sometimes he does extra taping before he goes so he’s not even off screen very long.

    Love Kimberly, but for the sake of the show it’s time to recast. Dye Melissa Archers hair brown and bring her in.

    As far as Billy Miller goes I don’t care who he as coming as, just glad he’s joining GH!

    Heres the other thing with Kim/Robin. If she doesnt want to stay long term, break them up. Patrick would be great with Nina. They come from different worlds and she would be a challenge for him. Robin, I would pair her with a new man. Left field. Robin and Ned. He doesnt stick around either so if you paired them they could be written in and out of the show as more of a couple. Thats the big deal with Robin, she comes back and then leaves and leaves her family behind. With Ned, it would be easier for him even if he stuck around to see Robin off screen and deal with the Q drama on screen.

    Anytime Robin can resurface works for me. If I was writing Patrck and Robin’s story I would have them divorced before she returns. That would allow them to play the Robin and Patrick that I enjoy the most – the bantering, the friction, the I can’t live with you/I can’t live without you storyline. They fabricated this oh so familiar, but still entertaining, storyline better than any other couple on GH. Patrick will still be seething whenever she returns and she’ll probably play up the self-rightousness that she pulls off so well – I’m looking forward to it!

    Leave her go. Their story is over. Patrick is looking like a weak man and if he takes her back he’s gonna look like a wuss. If he goes back to Sabrina, she’ll look like she’s taking left-overs after being dumped, but Patrick & Sam are looking good together.

    You have all said it…not again! Kimberley needs to say bye- bye once and for all and be done with it! It is fine, we are ok with the exit and just move on…but bringing her back over and over for these short stints is plain stupid. We love Patrick and hate the hell he has gone through…he deserves a REAL love interest and another story line that does not involve some form of torture! ENOUGH ALREADY GH writers!

    We can thank Kim for many good years as Robin but it’s time to cut the cord and let another actress take the part! Yes I agree Elizabeth H would be great!

    She can go and come as often as she needs to but she needs to make peace with Emma. They can say she’s someplace on duty in hospital. Mention her name now and then etc. We need Robin in the soap as often as she can be there.

    Robin and Patrick are over.. Her return will lead to divorce ..
    Patrick will be a free man..
    Patrick and Sabrina as a love couple is over, they will be close forever but not a couple..
    Sabrina’s leaving scene;
    there was no talk of love, no long kiss, no tears, neither said ”I love you”..
    It was totally a friends see you later..

    Sabrina will be with Carols and Patrick will be free, and Robin gone..

    I have loved KM as Robin since she first appeared. I love that when she returned and Emma saw her and ran to her, that is was linked with images of Robin reuniting with Anna in the Asian Quarter, making it an even more memorable event. If KM wants a different career, please just write her off in some respectful way. PLEASE do not recast her. Honor her long history with the show by giving her a dignified exit, perhaps with the opportunity to return as she decides what she wants to do with her career.

    But my first choice is that she stay and bring back some of that great tension that she and Patrick had in the early years.

    I love Robin and Kimberly. But another short term stint is like a half a bite of cheesecake. Why bother. If it’s to finish off with Patrick, that hardly would be satisfying. The last time she had almost no on screen time with Patrick/Jason or with Emma. A short term stint would not make me happy. I hate to say it, but If Kimberly does not want long term (which I totally understand and wish her well) then i’d rather see her replaced.

    Let me first say, I like Kim . I’ve watched her since her first appearance on GH . That being said , if she is coming back short term again, i would rather her not come back. If robin is needed full time then are they not better to go with a recast??? Some one who can return on a regular basis?? Every time Kim returns as robin, then leaves, we fans have a difficult time with it .

    I’m a huge Patrick Robin fan! I hate the way she left this past time. So absurd to leave her 2 loves and the last return took too long to get her back with them to really enjoy the reunion. That being sad- Patricks a hottie and he’s suffered so much lately. I’d like to either see Robin back for good ( we need a couple to root for) or they need to break up. Then I want him with …. SAM!
    Patrick ( jason Thompson) is an amazing actor, he’s come a long way over these years! He deserves a strong fun girl in his life! Not Sabrina but I think that ship has sailed!
    Bring Robin back and make it meaningful!

    Robin & Patrick are my all-time favorite couple on General Hospital! Every other couple is either on & off or broken at some point & I truly wish that is not in the future for Robin & Patrick. They have the most outstanding chemistry between the two of them & I often find myself getting too emotionally connected to their scenes!
