When it comes to tear jerking story lines, yesterday’s episode should be ranked as one of the top for being an extremely sad goodbye. Emotions were running high as Sam and Patrick decided to end their relationship and engagement. However, this time, the breakup didn’t just involve two adults. Little Emma, played by the remarkable Brooklyn Silzer, displayed phenomenal talent in Thursday’s episode of General Hospital. Her pain was so real, it could be felt even by those who could never relate to a heart wrenching goodbye. Emma is struggling so hard with the loss of her mother Robin, although she is alive, Emma has been lead to believe that Robin is choosing to live without her. She has had high hopes for finding a mother figure in Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) and now in Sam (Kelly Monaco), and this break up between Patrick and Sam has pushed Emma to her breaking point. After Sam left, Emma begged and pleaded to her dad, crying, “no more falling in love, no more girlfriends, I need mommy (Kimberly McCullough)!”
Jason Thompson and Kelly Monaco were nothing short of Emmy worthy in their performance. This story is a clear reflection of the real life goodbye the cast and crew have experienced as Jason Thompson taped his final episode of General Hospital last week. Jason Thompson has ended his 10 year run as the undeniably gorgeous, Dr. Patrick Drake, son of legendary Dr. Noah Drake, played by Rick Springfield. It has been confirmed that Jason Thompson has moved on to The Young and the Restless, and will be joining fellow ex-GH cast mate, Steve Burton (Jason Morgan).
It’s difficult to say what will happen next with this story. Odds are, they are gearing toward Emma getting her wish, and having Robin return to Port Charles, but no one knows just how long that will last.
Watch General Hospital M-F at 2PM Eastern/Standard to find out what’s to come at this emotional time for little Emma Drake and her Dad, Patrick.
