Jason Thompson joined the cast of General Hospital in 2005. GH cast and crew along with adoring fans have been graced with his presence on GH for the past decade. We have gotten to know and love his character, Dr. Patrick Drake. Son of the iconic Noah Drake (Rick Springfield), Thompson knew his character Patrick has some expectations to live up to. Almost right away. Thompson was paired along side one of General Hospital’s most loved and respected actresses, Kimberly McCullough. After some ups and downs for Dr. Scorpio and Dr, Drake, the doctor duo became a super couple in Port Charles.
General Hospital spoilers reveal some unsettling news for Jason Thompson and Dr. Drake fans. According to Daytime Confidential, Thompson’s contract with General Hospital is just about expired, and rumor has it that he has been contemplating leaving the show. Some GH rumors claim that Thompson has been going back and forth with his decision since Kimberly McCullough left GH, and felt that there was nothing much for Patrick in Port Charles. It would seem that on the contrary, since Robin left Patrick, there has been quite a bit of excitement in Port Charles for Patrick. He is stellar as Emma’s dad, an amazing (ex) son in law to Anna, a phenomenal doctor, a great friend to Elizabeth, and a hot romance with Sam.
Now that we are on the verge of Jason remembering who he actually is and who he belongs with, this obviously poses a problem for Sam and Patrick’s relationship. Does this mean that once Sam and Jason reunite, there will be nothing left for Jason Thompson’s character on the show?
Many fans would be devastated to see Jason Thompson exit General Hospital. Patrick Drake has lived in Port Charles and inside our hearts for an entire decade. He brings so much to the show; his talent, his devastatingly good looks, his ability to connect with his on screen daughter, Emma (Brooklyn Silzer), and every romance he has with a leading lady is full of chemistry and passion.
What will be in store for Patrick Drake in order for Jason Thompson to agree to renew his contract? With Sam and Patrick’s relationship seemingly coming to an end, there must be something out there for Patrick to take part in, to keep Thompson wanting to stay. Let us know what you think! Where should Patrick Drake’s story lead? How do you feel about the possibility of Jason Thompson leaving General Hospital?
