    Patrick is incredibly adorable, and such a gift from the land of Llanview. His scenes with Roger Howarth before the show left ABC were magical. Can’t wait to have him back! I just don’t want him to grow up!

    They arent brothers…they are cousins. Sam is Victors son while Jack is the son of Victors brother Todd. They only were half brothers when everbody thought Victor was Todd. I think iam right. Any way its good to see little Sam and Jack both back on the show.

    That would make them cousins as well as half-brothers as they share the same Mom (Blair) :)

    Confusing but I believe you are right Jen.

    jim replied

    Thanks Jen…i knew they werent full brothers because of the two different dads…i kept thinking Margaret was Sams mom because i wasnt watching soaps fulltime when Sam was born and by the time i tuned back i thought Blair was his guardian or adopted him. Better knowing he’s Blairs than Margarets!

    bbgamer replied

    Unless they rewrote history I am pretty sure that Margaret is Sam’s mother

    M replied

    Patrick is Blair’s adopted son. He is the biological child of Margaret who raped Victor (who everyone thought at the time was Todd). Jack is the biological child of Blair and Todd. So, since Blair adopted Patrick that makes Patrick legally Jack’s full brother, while at the same time biologically Jack’s cousin.

    Rodd replied

    I thought Sam was Margaret and Victor’s son….Hence, Jack and Sam are cousins.

    1loveabcsoap replied

    Your right!

    jim replied

    Why did i comment on this…im more confused now. Jack and Sam are definetly cousins as long as Todd is Todd and Victor is Victor and they are twin brothers. I always believed Margeret was Sams momma and Blair adopted him. Jack and Sam would then be cousins as well as stepbrothers. They cant be full brothers M unless he and Jack had the same birth parents, and if they did have the same birth parents they really wouldnt be cousins then. If you are raised by your uncle and aunt that still wouldnt make you a cousin to your siblings…you would always be their natural brother and sister no matter what.

    You are technically right, Jim, but that is not the point. Blair adopted Sam as a baby, so that makes them brothers, period.

    What? Sam is adopted? When? Why?

    I just wrote someone that I want Sam to be the son of Victor (who should be the real Todd) bc Sam really does look like Victor.

    When exactly did Blair adopt him?

    Joliefan Forever replied

    OK Spencer Truman let everyone believe that Todd had killed Margaret at the lake, even tho he actually had Margaret, he blackmailed his ex wife to deliver little Sam, then Spencer took him and gave him to an adoptive agency and Marice and Michael McBain ended up adopting sam whom they named Tommy McBain, When Todd found out that Tommy was his son he wanted him back and that is when Marcie took off with Tommy/Sam. When Todd got Sam back finally, Blair adopted him because she did not think he should grow up with out a mom……

    I’m so excited to see Patrick back on OLTL! Though, I was hoping he would visit GH and Sam would meet Emma! Two of the cutest kids acting today!!

    I am delighted that Patrick is a part of the revamped OLTL! He has always added a spontaneous charm and innocent comedy relief to the storyline and thus made Llanview an even more dimensional place! I am looking forward to “Sam’s” antics and hope he will be included for many years!

    And I hope he is the son of Trevor St. John because he looks like him.

    Welcome back, patrick! So glad that OLTL is not SORASing like AMC is. I hate SORASing.

    What does SORASing mean?

    What do you mean when U say that U are glad that OneLife isn’t SORASing like AMC is?

    Lin replied

    It is a term they use in the soap opera business and magazines. It means “Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome.
    On AMC all the kids have been aged 5 years since we last saw the show. So they are using all different young actors. I am glad OLTL is not doing that. I don’t like it when they do that. For instance, Bianca on AMC is going to have an actress playing her daughter who in reality is almost as old as the actress.

    It is the same Sam, and from what i remember he did wear glasses in some scenes.

    Patrick ( Sam Manning) looks EXACTLY like Trevor St.John. He has to come back and be the father of both Sam and Jack. Todd (Roger Howarth) can not, it doesn’t work. In fact, Todd needs to be Victor Jr.

    I love Sam and Jack…..” Other than ” Vickie and St. John, Jack and Same are my favorites….

    I adore little “Spidey” Sam, and he needs to be played by Patirick! The anticipation for the reboots of OLTL & AMC is wonderful…..
