Executive Producer Frank Valentini Tells What’s in Store for Patrick Drake

We have been watching Jason Thompson play the role of Dr. Patrick Drake for 7 years now. Since 2007 we have been able to recognize and appreciate his abilities as an actor. It’s always great to hear what General Hospital co-workers and TPTB think of our favorite stars.

In a recent article from Michael Fairman, he explains that in an interview on the red carpet for the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Frank Valentini let him in on what Patrick Drake will be up to throughout this Summer. He gives kudos to Jason Thompson for his amazing portrayal of the talented, good looking, father of the year, Dr. Patrick Drake. Frank Valentini revealed, “A lot will happen with Patrick over the summer and into the Fall, and we also have Sabrina’s return.  Jason Thompson is a tremendous actor who is constantly refining and reworking his craft.  He’s always in class, and he is such a wonderful guy and amazing.”

Valentini also gave major props to other actors on General Hospital. He explain that when casting new actors, they do it very carefully in order to keep up with the incredible talent that already exists in Port Charles. He mentioned Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos), Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos Jacks), and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis). In response to a question asking about the casting of Maura West (Ava Jerome), Donna Mills (Madeline Reeves), and Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay), he stated, “We have a tremendous cast, and we choose everyone very carefully, because of the caliber of actors such as Maurice Benard (Sonny), Laura Wright (Carly,) and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) … you’ve got to bring in some pretty big guns to compete with them.  You will see Donna Mills (Madeline) again this summer.”

Kimberly McCullough’s (Robin) Exit Will Leave Fans Disappointed

General Hospital’s Kimberly McCullough, (Robin Scorpio Drake) has announced she will be exiting the show again after a short time back on the canvas. Robin has been on and off screen for 2 years since her supposed “death by explosion.” This Fall, Robin was found and reunited with her parents and loved ones. She and husband Patrick have reconnected despite his almost marriage to Sabrina. Emma got her Mother back, and soon, Robin will be gone… again.

In an interview, McCullough describes her departure as, “it’s not goodbye, just see you later.” She hopes to always be a part of General Hospital and mentions that it all depends on how much Frank Valentini liked working with her.

Scrubs fans will not be getting the happy ending they were so hoping for. Other than the fact that Jason Thompson (Patrick) is staying put, (THANK GOD), there will not be a happily every after for Dr. Patrick Drake, Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, and their daughter Emma. When responding to the question of whether or not Scrubs fans will get closure, McCullough states, “I don’t even know if I can comment on that. They’re going to be pissed. Really. They’re going to be pissed. I’m sorry.”

This doesn’t look good for the devote Drake Family fans.

All in all we wish Kimberly McCullough the best of luck in all her endeavors and always want to keep the door open for a Robin Scorpio return.

Sabrina is Pregnant?! But is it Patrick’s Baby?

What timing for Sabrina to end up pregnant… Patrick has just made his choice to go back to his wife he thought he had lost to an untimely death. The reunion was bittersweet as he saw her standing in the church as he was about to say his wedding vows to another woman.

It took Patrick some time, but he realized he knew he loved Robin all along and although he loves Sabrina, she would never have played such a huge role in he and Emma’s life if Robin had been around for the past 2 years.

Now that the Drakes are one big happy family again, Sabrina has discovered that she is pregnant. Knowing Sabrina, she most likely won’t bring it to Patrick’s attention… after all, that’s what Britt did to her.

That being said, now that we know they Sabrina is actually pregnant, do we believe the baby is Patrick’s? We can’t forget her wedding night when Robin came back from the dead. She ran to her ex lover, Carlos Rivera for comfort. Although it was said that the two did not sleep together, perhaps Carlos lied? Or maybe he was too drunk to remember also.

What outcome are you hoping for? Patrick or Carlos? Log in with Facebook and leave a comment below. Let us know what you think!

Who Will Patrick Choose?

Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) Co-Hosts ‘The View’!

General Hospital’s very own Jason Thompson, aka Dr. Patrick Drake will be co-hosting ABC’s The View. Look out for Jason this Wednesday, October 23, at 11 AM Eastern.

General Hospital Shake Ups!

Wow, after that Anna/Dr. Obrecht shocker, whose to say what we are in for next! These recent story lines have been so intense and the actors have been doing such an amazing job conveying every single feeling and emotion into their stories. I don’t know about you, but I cried the entire time I saw Patrick, Emma, Elizabeth, and Robin on my screen. The whole time “Anna” was talking to Faison, I didn’t for one second think that it wasn’t really Anna. I loved the scene, and felt for Anna when she heard straight from the horses mouth that her daughter Robin was actually alive. Little did I know, it wasn’t Anna at all, but Dr. Obrecht in a mask. Faison has betrayed Obrecht and now she knows it. Faison was willing to tell Anna their entire plot and plan because he loves HER, not Dr. Obrecht. Disguised as Anna, Dr. O learned the harsh truth that Faison will always love Anna and will never return her feelings.

What will happen now that Dr. Obrecht knows Faison would have outed her and Jerry about Robin? I can only imagine she would be out for some intense revenge.

Now that Dr. Obrecht knows Faison will never love her and will always love Anna, will she reveal a secret? Who is Britt’s Father?

Will Robin make it home in time before her birthday is over?

Britt Finally Tells Patrick About the Baby!

This wasn’t a tease, or a beat around the bush type of revelation. It was a full out reveal that the baby Britt is carrying is indeed not Patrick’s. Patrick was so angry with Britt about all the other lies she has been telling and the fact that her Mother, Dr. Obrecht is a dangerous threat. He doesn’t want that woman anywhere near “his” baby. He really laid into Britt and demanded that he would get full custody of their son. Britt was so alarmed that she actually blurted out the words, “He’s not your son!” Patrick finally knows that he has no baby on the way with The Britch. How will he react tomorrow?

There is one loose end that still hasn’t been confirmed. Is this baby even hers? Let’s hope for everyone’s sake that it actually belongs to Dante and Lulu. Stay tuned to General Hospital to watch it all unfold.

Does Patrick Find out the Truth About the Baby Today?

Today on General Hospital, Britt reveals a secret to Patrick about her baby. Patrick already knows who her Mother is, maybe Britt will come clean.

So whose baby is she actually carrying? We know it sure isn’t Patrick’s. Is the baby even hers? Every time she has mentioned Patrick not being the Father, she has never really addressed whether the baby was even her own. Could Britt have had Dante and Lulu’s embryos implanted in her to make her pregnant? See what Britt decides to tell Patrick today on General Hospital!
