It has been known that Thompson’s contract was about due, and it was said that he was contemplating leaving his character, Patrick, behind. With the way the Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) story line is unfolding, it seems as of he felt this was the right time for Patrick to leave Port Charles. Although the Patrick and Sam pairing is loved by many, a Jason and Sam reunion has been long awaited by a very large fan base. It’s inevitable that eventually Jason and Sam (Kelly Monaco) will be together again, leaving Patrick behind.
General Hospital news and spoilers have revealed that Jason Thompson has not renewed his contract with GH, and that he will be leaving the show.
Related to Patrick leaving Port Charles, fans have been wondering what now will happen with Emma Drake (Brooklyn Silzer). Her mother, Robin (Kimberly McCullough), is out of the picture, and since Patrick will now be gone, who will be left to care for Emma. Will Anna (Finola Hughes), become Emma’s legal guardian, or will Brooklyn Silzer also leave GH for lack of story line?
