HomeTVGeneral HospitalWill Patrick and Sabrina FINALLY Hook Up at the General Hospital Nurses Ball? Luke Kerr April 1, 2013 47 Comments It is the moment General Hospital fans have been waiting for; the ABC soap is finally celebrating its 50th Anniversary! On April 2, GH will air the return of the beloved Nurses Ball. Tune in for must-see performances and to find out if Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) will finally get together. Watch the General Hospital promo after the jump! 47 Responses alstonboy4315 April 1, 2013 I don’t wanna see Patrick with Betty Suarez 2.0. I would rather see him with Elizabeth……..or Carly. Sabrina is just too contrived for me to root for her and Patrick. It’s such a forced “Cinderella” type of story and I don’t see any chemistry between Castillo and Thompson. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon April 1, 2013 NOoooooooo. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 April 1, 2013 I’m kind of over this character. Why is Sabrina constantly thrown in our face? RC has definitely found it’s favorites in Sabrina and this Connie/Kate mess. I need a little bit more balance there. Put these two at the back burner. At least for a while. Not interested in Patrick/Sabrina either. I finally need Robin back and either have her and Patrick together again on- or off-screen. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman April 1, 2013 As usual, I have an opposing view on here. I like Sabrina. I read somewhere that she won’t even end up with Patrick because Jason Thompson may be OUT at GH soon. I think they are supposed to be chem testing her with Nikolas soon. Log in to Reply liason4real April 1, 2013 Sabrina & Spinelli, Sabrina & Milo, Sabrina & Michael, but just no to Sabrina and Patrick. Log in to Reply liason4real April 1, 2013 RC is slamming Sabrina down our throats just like those Ford boys from OLTL. Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 April 1, 2013 I’m in the minority to because I love Sabrina and cant wait for her to get a makeover and look all pretty. I don’t necessarily need/want her to be with Patrick but I like her especially her banter with Felix. Log in to Reply The_Moustache April 1, 2013 how come everyone hates Sabrina?? Log in to Reply Jeff April 1, 2013 @Katiebug– you are so right. She is getting jammed down our throats no matter how much the audience doesn’t want her with Patrick or respond to her or like her, just like the Fords were. Frank and Ron are so good, but they do have flaws, and stuffing the story with useless characters like Sabrina (and anything to do with the Fords on OLTL)is definitely their biggest flaw. It’s like they are saying– sorry you don’t get our masterpiece, but trust us, it’s amazing. PLEASE— let Sabrina go away or pair her with someone else (age appropriate please), reunite Patrick with Robin, and send them off into the sunset somewhere to be safe together, and have Britt die being a hero making it happen. Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. April 1, 2013 Patrick should just sleep with her and keep it moving! Ughhh Log in to Reply liason4real April 1, 2013 My problems with Sabrina is all of the pimping and propping being done BY everyone on GH that THIS character is the B.O.M.B. We’re not seeing that type of pimping and propping for Ellie, Britt or Felix. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens April 1, 2013 I love Sabrina. She has an aspirational, almost fairy tale quality about her. Plus, how many years did people gripe about the hospital being missing from General Hospital? Thanks to Sabrina, Felix and Co. the hospital is viable again. Log in to Reply slick234 April 1, 2013 Nice! Patrick and Sabrina are the bomb. Log in to Reply TV Gord April 1, 2013 I like Sabrina and she looks beautiful in this picture. I’d like to see where their relationship could go. Nothing lasts for long on soaps, but this coupling could make for some interesting storylines while it lasts. I’d be interested to see Patrick try to remain interested in Sabrina, but slowly realize that he’s staying with her more because of how good she is with his daughter. That’s a realistic struggle that could make for some great soapy moments! Log in to Reply liason4real April 1, 2013 I would enjoy the hospital staff a lot more if Liz, Piph, Felix, etc were not on pimping duties for Sabrina. Liz and Patrick spend more time talking about Sabrina than their own lives, children, etc. Log in to Reply anyanka123 April 2, 2013 Yay! Go Patrina! Log in to Reply SoapyBitch April 2, 2013 I like Sabrina too and I love the crush thing with Patrick. This entire storyline has also rehab’d my perception of Patrick and Robin. That last year of the two of them together with Lisa and all the yelling, I was so over all of them, but now I really want both Patrick and Robin to get back together. I commend Jason Thompson because he plays the fatherly lead so well. I feel like I am watching a daily rom com, but one where the end isn’t that the ugly duckling gets the guy but the end is that she matures. I think Sabrina and Felix were excellent ways for new viewers to get acquainted with the Nurses Ball concept and for old viewers (is it nearly 20) to get back into the spirit. I do hope that the quick cut from Bobbie talking about Lucas to a shot of Felix means that Lucas is coming back. If so, I think it was great planning to introduce Felix first and then Lucas rather than the other way around. Log in to Reply days4ever April 2, 2013 I happen to like Sabrina too but I love Robin so I am torn. But since Robin is presumed dead it only makes sense that Patrick would fall for someone else. Sabrina certainly is a good person and a nurse so also cares for others. I could see her with Lucky maybe but not sure about Nikolas. Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones April 2, 2013 I remember when Dixie Cooney/Felicia Cummings/April Scott/Carly Benson/Carly Tenney/Jody Travis/Nina Courtlandt/Angie Baxter/Jenny Gardner/Marley Hudson/Gwen Norbeck/Ruby Wright/Billie Reed/Deborah Saxon/Drucilla Barber/Harley Cooper and a whole host of other young women, mainly ingenues, were “pimped,” “propped” and “shoved down our throats,” too. I happen like Sabrina the character and Teresa Castillo is just terrific. Not too mention, gorgeous! Log in to Reply logan_echolls April 2, 2013 I can’t stand Sabrina. I have never seen a character this pimped. I also can’t stand what seems to be the bullying of Patrick to make Patrick like this stupid girl. Everyone is forcing Patrick to have feelings for this 12 year old. Especially Piffy. This girl whined like crazy during her whole graduation. This was an achievement. Instead all she thought about was Patrick coming to her graduation. She’s an idiot. I also read that Sabrina and Patrick won’t be a couple. I hope they aren’t. I don’t want to see Patrick suck with Sabrina the Teenage Twit! I don’t want to fast forward Patrick but I have to if he’s stuck with that dope. Log in to Reply Daniel St. John April 2, 2013 I actually like the character of Sabrina but I really dislike the Sabrina/Patrick couple idea just doesn’t do a thing for me. I am really hoping that after giving their romance a try Sabrina realizes she was wrapped up in an immature superficial crush and Patrick realizes he was drawn in by how well Sabrina got along with his daughter and was flattered by the idea that a beautiful young woman was so head over heels for him, then they decide they are a bad match and both decide they would make better friends than lovers. Log in to Reply fantasyfan April 2, 2013 Please don’t let this happen. I get that Patrick thinks Robin is dead so he has every right to move on, but not with Sabrina. She is way way too immature for him. I can see her as Emma’s sister but not her mom. She needs to interact with the younger crowd. The actress is very pretty and I’m glad she’ll get the chance to show that, but that won’t fix the problem. Log in to Reply luverica April 2, 2013 I LOVE SABRINA! I’ve always had from the moment I first saw her character, and mainly for the reasons Jamey and J Bernard have stated so well. J, it’s interesting that you included Jenny Gardner in the list of ingénues, because that’s who Sabrina reminds me of. Granted, Jenny was never quite as bubbly as Sabrina but like my beloved Jenny, I feel so emotionally protective of Sabrina and fumed when Dr. Brittany/Liza Colby 2.0 or anyone else comes after her. Like Jenny, I’m always rooting for Sabrina. I smile when she appears on screen. I have to say, the Sabrina hate on this board took me by surprise. I’m rooting for her and Patrick but whether she stays with Patrick or not, I don’t really care. Whatever character can make my Sabrina happy is alright with me. Log in to Reply katehhoward April 2, 2013 AGain MOFO’s up in here hating for no damn reason. I like Sabrina better than that Connie/Cate whore Kelly Sullivan. You people need to cut the girl some slack. The a lot of you out here just bitching for every little thing. If Jason is out so be it but lets get some other men on this show so we can have some good hot Ford Brothers 2.0. I loved those Ford boys yummy. David Gregory is such a pretty boy with those hot chiseled muscles. I would love to get a gander at some oiled up men. Log in to Reply dwood37 April 2, 2013 I agree with most of you. I CANNOT STAND the character of Sabrina!! This storyline is SUCH a knock off of Ugly Betty! (Ron and Frank..you’re a heckuva lot more creative than this!!). I was hoping she’d drink the bad water and die or be killed by Caleb or something. Of course, as others have pointed out, R&F do have a history of ramming characters down our throats!! I mean, the Ford boys were hot, but did we need to see them without shirts on every other day on OLTL?????? MUST we see Sabrina EVERYDAY on GH? Give me a break! For the record, with the exception of the Connie storyline, I LOVE everything else on GH!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply AHeart4Fiction April 2, 2013 Get it Sabrina! I love that character & Felix to bits! I think they bring a renewed vibe to the hospital. Because seriously when is that last time we saw interns graduate & become nurses? Under Guza we probably would have seen Sabrina pimped to Sonny for her dark hair & brown eyes & Felix wouldn’t have even been a thought. Log in to Reply liason4real April 2, 2013 The constant pimping and propping of Sabrina reminds me of Frons “training” the audience. Here’s hoping Sabrina is backburned with Connie for the next several months, so that I can continue to enjoy the show. Log in to Reply tvlover01 April 2, 2013 I like sabrina just not with Patrick. I like the idea if Sam and Patrick vetter because if the potential fallout with jason and Robin Log in to Reply tealita April 2, 2013 DP Log in to Reply Yoryla April 2, 2013 I don’t like Sabrina. But I’m not getting upset over this kiss, because I have a feeling it’s not going to happen between these two. Sabrina will find another man. And for Patrick, Robin is the only woman. The Sabrina story is contrived and a cliché. The premise has been plain as day from the beginning, which is what makes it so unappealing. We are “supposed” to root for Sabrina and find her charming. I don’t like that kind of manipulative thinking. The audience can’t be “ordered” to like something. This phenomenon can be seen very well on DAYS with the character of Daniel Jonas and the Dannifer pairing. No matter how much a show tells us what is “right”, it’s not going to work. People make up their own minds. And for me, this isn’t organic. They should have just brought Sabrina on without the instant Patrick aspect. Tell more about HER and family, who she is and where she came from. What motivates her. Those kinds of things. RE: The use of the hospital. Yes, it is right and great that it is used more, but the point is the show doesn’t need and shouldn’t need THESE particular character such a Sabrina, to do that. They already have established characters who could /should be involved with the hospital. Actually, the actual Ball airs April 5, 8 & 9. Today, the 2nd is the anniversary episode. Log in to Reply tealita April 2, 2013 [quote=Evangeline Vega]…Under Guza we probably would have seen Sabrina pimped to Sonny for her dark hair & brown eyes…[/quote] Unfortunately, there’s a very remote possibility that Sabrina could still be linked to Sonny somehow, although the thought makes me shudder. Lily came up in Sonny’s convo today, which I thought was odd, because we really didn’t *need* a Lily mention just to re-intro Brenda. We know that Sabrina is Juan Santiago’s cousin. Hopefully, they wouldn’t retcon that relationship just to make Sabrina Sonny’s daughter. I also hope that Pip’s constant references to Sabrina as “Santiago..” aren’t anvils. Hopefully, the Lily mention was just a nod to history and no more. I’m not saying that I’ve boarded the Sabrina bus just yet, but I think that the Milo-device is having it’s intended consequence (on me at least) because he’s such a doofus compared to Patrick. It’s hard not to cheer for Patrick in this instance. How could he let that mo-mo Milo win? And, since they aren’t giving me anyone else for Patrick at the moment, why not take one for the team? Log in to Reply soapbaby April 2, 2013 What do we know of the character besides she has a crush on Patrick (her primary defining trait since day one) and that she is best friends with Emma? Sabrina has not been fleshed-out one bit in all of the time she has been frontburnered. so much time wasted on her whining about her crush versus learning anything about her or watching her mix it up with the canvas of characters. Her motivations for reviving the Nurses’ Ball seemed to be to impress Patrick & Emma versus being altruistic. I would have liked Sabrina having expressed that the NB was important to her because she had an uncle who died from complications from AIDS and feels the cause is important. Also, Patrick & Sabrina have no chemistry and there’s been zero build-up between them. The attraction has been presented as one-sided on Sabrina’s part with next to nothing presented from Patrick’s end. Now, that Sabrina will receive a makeover Patrick will act on “feelings.” It’s cartoonish and stupid. I don’t see the hospital being made more viable under this headwriter. Under RC, Doctors Matt Hunter and Steve Webber were written out. The hospital staff is primarily being used to prop-up Sabrina and she lacks substance. Monica was used heavily the month of November but underutilized since. Log in to Reply logan_echolls April 2, 2013 I love that….this grown tail woman best friend is a 6 year old! Liz and Felix always talk down to Sabrina because all she does is whine about Patrick. So Felix and Liz talk to her like she’s a little kid. That’s why her and Emma can have such great conversations. Like Brit said, Sabrina wanted to do this whole Nurse’s Ball to honor Robin so she could get closer to Patrick. This has NOTHING to do with Robin. It’s only to get in Patrick’s pants. Sabrina is just an manipulative as Brit, Carly, etc. She just hides it behind those Walmart glasses. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 April 2, 2013 Wow1 What a make-over. Sabrina looks beautiful. I think it was hard to take to the character of Sabrina because she was written like a 15 year old school girl and she is a grown woman. I think Ron C was trying to do an old-fashioned Cinderella story . But it was just too much Sabrina, all the time, and I think they were holding things off because of Patrick’s deep love for Robin. I hope Jason T doesn’t leave the show!!!! I haven’t heard anything about that. He’s a great actor and deserves a better story-line. I know they were holding off awhile with him because there were so many Robin/Patrick fans . But, they need to give him a story line and NOW! I still would like him better with Liz, but Becky has so much chemistry with everyone and I think they are going more to a Liz/AJ/Nicolas story. I like the friendship between Sabrina and Felix (my favorite new character). This Nurses Ball looks fantastic!!! Log in to Reply marknsprmo April 2, 2013 I can see it now Nadia Bjorlin is now playing the role of Sabrina! lol… this story was done on Days over a decade before. Not to mention Superman has been taking his glasses off for about 65 years now….. Other than that congrats for bringing back the nurses ball! It is a staple on soaps that should stay. Like breakfast at the Abbott’s,and the reading of the Christmas story in Salem or a good cat fight between Dorian and Vickie. Log in to Reply lizzing April 2, 2013 Please, no don’t do it Patrick!!! Sorry but I can not stand Sabrina they just don’t work. No matter how hard you try to push her down our throat’s I will never like her and she is not the one for Patrick.

But as far as Milo vs. Patty, there is no Milo vs. Patty lol. He’s just another diversion & angst until Patina kiss, a cute, clueless, buff diversion but a cute one nonetheless. I love that we get to see more of Milo & Max outside of the mob though. Well your half on the Patina train since your a Patty fan! I think Patrick could have worse in a love interest. Log in to Reply logan_echolls April 4, 2013 My goodness FoxyMegan, that is so cool. You know the majority of the over 3 million GH fans! Wow. You said the majority of GH viewers like Sabrina. So that HAS to mean you know a majority of 3 million fans personally. Since you personally know a majority of the Sabrina fans. You should start a Sabrina fan club. That is amazing. Log in to Reply generalcarla April 7, 2013 I LOVE Patrick and Sabrina even more than Patrick and Robin. Anyone saying that there is no chemistry between those two must not be watching too closely. She is the perfect substitute (upgrade) for Robin and I hope that they last for a long long time. Log in to Reply Cyberologist April 19, 2013 I don’t care who Patrick is with I liked his storyline with Robin however this story is just awful and the execution is dreadful; did he just have to have his first date/kiss with this woman at the event honoring his dead wife? This story has no heart no warm and fuzzy for me, couldn’t it be an eppy afterwards where he sees the light? Its about “story” with me and I just can’t take being forcefed this character anymore, since fall 2012, its been the Sabrina show she’s dominated the whole hospital side in story … there are no other Doctors, nurses, staff stories other than them standing around talking about leading Patrick by the hand to Sabrina (that is when she’s not on she leads in eppy counts much like Dante did when he first came on and I didn’t like that either). ..here is Steven Lars flat on his back about to get married, Scott Reeves is leaving, but he can’t get air with his fiancee Olivia without them reduced to Sabrina worshipping. Every character on this show spouts her sweetness and light. I don’t respond to this kind of storytelling…sorry as it is, I can’t stand her. As for me being a GH hater that’s bull vocal in my Sabrina hate? Damn right…! As for everybody liking her or as Patrick who has been reduced to Sabrina world and nothing else “everybody loves Sabrina;” I have no way of gauging something like that and neither does he. Log in to Reply ldylkng April 19, 2013 Well I like her, but really would love to see her with Michael!! Even Carly couldn’t complain about that!
