Rumors on soap boards are like immature whining on a Justin
Bieber board. Yeah, it’s pretty much nonstop.
The one that hit this week was that Kimberly McCullough –
Robin Scorpio, for the great unwashed – would be returning to her old stomping
ground to resurrect her beloved character.
Before we get into this, I want to stress that’s it’s a
rumor. As far as I can tell, there has been no official confirmation.
Why do I believe this rumor more than other ones? I’m not
exactly sure that I do. Maybe it’s just that I hope this one is true.
I’m not going to lie, Robin Scorpio is one of my top five
all-time GH characters. She was pretty much my age, so I grew up watching her
grow up and, yeah, I love her.
My love for Robin aside, though, I think she’s important to
the canvas right now. We know that Jerry Jacks has her and that Dr. Obrecht
used to have her.
Dr. Obrecht’s daughter, Britt, is pretending to be pregnant
with Patrick’s (Robin’s husband) child. In
reality, most fans suspect she’s
pregnant with one of Lulu and Dante’s embryos – but that’s neither here nor
there right now.
Speaking of Patrick, he’s dating a Disney princess that is
so grating – I’ve actually considered deafening myself with Q-tips when she’s
onscreen just to stop the screaming of the lambs. Robin is the only way to save
Patrick right now. He went from one of my top five favorite characters on the
show right now to the bottom 10 – thanks to his association with Sabrina.
Robin’s father, Robert, is languishing in a coma overseas
somewhere and since he saw Robin alive, he can’t be resurrected until her
survival is revealed.
Robin’s mother, Anna, is embroiled in another mob war and
she may need Robin to influence one half of the mob in Port Charles.
Robin’s daughter, Emma, is terrorizing Britt and worshipping
Sabrina – so she needs to be reintroduced to a worthy role model.
Robin’s cousin Maxie is pregnant with her own child, passing
it off as Lulu and Dante’s and struggling with her decision constantly. She
could really use some of that patented Robin wisdom.
Robin’s best friend Brenda needs to return to town – and I
can’t think of a better reason than to reunite with Robin.
Robin’s good friend Liz is waffling between A.J. and Nik –
and Robin could offer her perspective. In
addition, I wouldn’t mind seeing
Patrick suffer for choosing his little Disney doll, so maybe Nik and Robin can commiserate
together (complete with a roll in the hay). I’ve always wanted to explore that
There is hope right now. Luke is running around Europe
looking for a cure for the poison that Helena tainted him with. He thinks his
only cure is Jerry – and Jerry was the last character we saw with Robin.
Maybe Luke can catch sight of Robin working with Jerry. He
can call Anna and tell her what he saw. Anna, being dubious of Luke’s claims,
manages to rouse Robert from his coma and head off to rescue Robin without
When Robert, Anna, Luke and Laura (we all know she’s going
to show up) rescue Robin we can find out she was only helping Jerry as a ruse
to get away. Upon her return to Port Charles, she can beat the crap out of
Britt for terrorizing her daughter, tell Maxie to grow up and explain to
Sabrina why her annoying services will no longer be needed.
Given the torture that Patrick and Sabrina have been to me,
I would like to see Robin put Patrick through a decent amount of grief (re: the
aforementioned Nikolas sex) before reuniting with him.
I have a feeling – note, this is just a feeling – that Robin
really may be coming back to usher Patrick off the show. Jason Thompson’s
contract is coming up and rumor has it (I know, it could just be fan fiction)
that he doesn’t want to remain with the show.
The truth is, the cast on GH is so large right now, some
cuts have to be made. I would rather see Robin and Patrick ride off into the
sunset together than him ruined any further with the continual “romance” with
What do you think? Do you want Robin back?
