    I just hope that Y&R will (wisely) SORAS (when the time is right) little Katie and cast Brooklyn in the role.

    WOW what a way to reunite Jason and Brooklyn! That would be great!

    Tristan replied

    A well-known soap journalist has already posted an article urging JFP to do this! That would be a coup for Y&R, and a real blow to GH.

    I just watched the episode I thought it was well done with the time constraints that they had the flashbacks were a nice touch.

    The flashbacks were terrific!

    The flashbacks were the best part of it. Also loved the vows to Emma. Otherwise it was so brief and oddly edited with weird jumps to the Laura/Tracy/Nik/Hayden scenes. Robin had hardly any face time with Mac and Robert. Why? Poor Felicia got to say nothing. Why did they make Maxie “forget” the minister and the rings? That’s not like Maxie, the Super Wedding Planner. They could have simply said that she planned, with Mac, for Mac to get ordained online. That would have been a nice touch. Also, feel like Epiphany should gave been a wedding guest. She’s been a big part of Drake Jr’s life!

    Loved the flashbacks–wistful–to think we saw none of another legacy couple–throwing some shade at Tony Geary’s “misconduct.”

    Where is Robert Scorpio?

    CeeCee replied

    I guess Robert must have taken the picture. Love the picture…yes, BRAVI and KUDOS but, shouldn’t have Tristan been included in the Scorpio-Drake family picture?

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    He barely said goodbye to Robin. Odd.

    Torqumada replied

    He gave her away. Mac officiated.

    CeeCee replied

    I mean, in the picture? Shouldn’t Robert, the father, have been included in the picture?

    Jake R replied

    Jason Thompson’s scene partners were primarily Kimberly, Brooklyn, and Finola (not including “non-family” members like Liz or Sam). He barely had any scenes with Tristan Rogers over the years, esp. since Tristan has barely been on the show over the years, sadly for us Robert Scorpio fans.

    CeeCee replied

    Well, Jake R. With all due respect, the ‘heading’ specifies, “Jason Thompson posts Scorpio-Drake family photo”. FAMILY photo. Robert Scorpio is, indeed, the Scorpio patriarch . Without him there would not have been Robin Scorpio. It makes no difference how long or how often Tristan has had contact with Jason. We are talking about the characters, not personal friendships. If it was not Jason’s intention to include Tristan, as Robert, then the wording should not have included ‘Scorpio-Drake family’, either. I am strictly talking about that….difference of opinion, I guess. Have a good day.

    Elizabeth replied

    My sentiments exactly. Why no Robert in the pic.

    Despite the title of the photo, the comment seems to reflect the professional relationships of the actors – and Robert just wasn’t in that sphere as often, unfortunately. I don’t think it was meant to slight him; just an actor’s photo of those closest on the set in his storylines & keeping it “all in the family.” Makes sense to me :)

    What a beautiful send off for Patrick, Robin and Emma Drake. I loved their story line and I will miss them on GH. Wishing them all much success in their future endeavors.

    Very sad Patrick, Robin and Emma will be missed. But, at least you can watch Patrick on Young & Restless. My very best to Patrick.

    Just started recording Y&R since so many of my favorite soap actors have been cast there. I feel like I know the rudimentary back stories on most of the characters since I read the soap mags. Shouldn’t be too hard to catch up hopefully. Enjoying the show so far, though never liked those show runners when they were at GH.

    I certainly hope we will see this family again. At least Kmberly and Brooklyn visiting. It sounds like definitely Brooklyn will visit.

    Will truly miss Patrick,Robin, and Emma Drake. They were the ultimate supercouple of GH and were the reason I watched GH since they got together back in 2005. Can’t wait to see JT on Y & R it should be interesting. Hopefully when the timing is right for Robin,Patrick,& Emma to return to GH for a future storyline they could convince Y& R to let JT come back as Patrick even on a recurring basis. That would make the scrubs fans really happy . Wish they could have gotten Rick Springfield to come back for Jason and Kimberly’s final sendoff that would have been awesome. Love the family photo.

    Thank your lucky stars Scrub Fans that these characters were not on Days, otherwise instead of a happy family reunion that leaves the door open for a return some day, they would have all died in a plane crash on the way to California —- so grateful for a happy ending for a change– it was cheesy and predictable but at least it ended on positive note — for now anyhow.

    Well first, it was amazing to see Robert, Anna, Robin, Patrick, Emma, Mac and Felicia in the same room. It has got to be years since all the Scorpios have gathered at the same time. Now we only get to see Anna and maybe a little of Mac and there they go! Sad but happy to see them all together again. It was also nice to see Carly and Robin hug it out! They have a checkered history with lots of finger pointing but like Robin said today, she loves Sonny and Carly is good for Jason and those two men mean the world to Robin so why not Carly and Robin be friends. Bury the hatchet because they have two things in common! Second thing, on these shoe string budgets its tough to make weddings grand. well, this being in the Drakes household would be nothing spectacular BUT Patrick and Robin exchanged their vows to Emma and I thought that was really cool and different. Too me, another positive notch in the new writers belts. Thank you!

    I would also include Maxie in that group.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    I did think of her when I was thinking of Mac and Felicia but Maxie doesnt really have a strong connection to Robert and Anna.

    Tristan replied

    Anna is Maxie’s godmother; this is a relationship that should be more often acknowledged.

  17. Beth says:

    What I loved was the genuine emotion we saw from all of the actors in the wedding scenes. You can tell that JT, KMc and BS will all be missed, and how much they will miss GH. These are the moments I live for on a soap and they’re very rare. It was a beautiful wedding and the right way to send off the Scorpio-Drakes. Well done, GH, and all the best to the three actors as they leave GH for greener pastures.

    At least Patrick and Robin, with Emma in tow, got married again for the scrub fans, and the emphasis was all on them. But the rest of the wedding party seemed like window dressing except for a couple of wrap-up conversations between Robin, Carly, Liz, and Jason. I realize it was short notice, but no music, laughter, festivity to speak of…Maxie where were you? Robert barely had a line, looked like he was on a lunch break from Y&R, and only one daddy/daughter hug…sorta…and then folded chairs and pulled a luggage piece outside. Felicia warmed a seat…that was all. Nothing between Anna and Robert…no glances, smiles, hugs, hand-holding for this occasion or each other. Where was Ephiany (sp?) for Young Dr. Drake? And I don’t think inviting Sam would have been such a bad idea since she helped hold the fort down while Robin was gone, and between her and Patrick formed at least a friendship and bond when both realized how they felt about Jason and Robin at about the same time.

    this is one of the best episodes i have seen in a very long time – it was so nice to see the scorpio brothers together & also great to finally see felicia – it was so sad to see the drake family walk off the screen for the last time but i am thrilled they got their happy ever after because after all they went thru they totally deserved it…………
    i will keep this episode on my dvr

    i forgot to say that epiphany should have been included because she loved her some “drake jr” and robin…………………..

    The thing I like most about this interview is that young Brooklyn obviously does not have a psycho stage mom like Kris Kardashian! Brooklyn said that she is only allowed to watch Jason’s scenes on Y & R. She also said she doesnt have social media. It is very nice and rewarding to hear of a child being protected and loved rather than profited from and exploited!

    Agreed Dylan…. you watch and see… she will be cast in many things, she is so adorable and obviously a major talent.

    I really thought the whole wedding thing was so fast without planning didn’t give it much of a wedding affect. More like a get together. Who ever said Robert was excluded from family photo was totally correct. Robert definitely should have been in that photo. Don’t understand why he was not included. Epaniphy should have been there for Drake Jr. It was nice but so unorganized. Needed much more planning and togetherness. Will miss little Brooklyn such a great little actress. Not much reason to watch anymore. Can’t wait to see how he does as Billy Abbott. Really liked Billy Abbott when it was Billy Miller. This is a big character change for Jason Thompson. I’m sure he will do great but it is so hard to get used to anyone playing Billy Abbott but Billy Miller. Good luck Jason. Just one question though Why would you leave such a good show as General Hospital to go to boring Young and Restless?????
