    Way to ruin Robin’s return Ron!!! You did such a great job yet you are still distracted by your shiny new toy Sabrina. She is a Non Factor!!! How in the Sam Hill is Patrick torn?

    Agree logan-echolls. If Patrick is torn much longer than I don’t buy the epic love story that has been built for Patrick & Robin in the past. Robin & Patrick have an 8 year relationship, daughter, dealt with Robin’s HIV and crazy Lisa Niles. They have a history. So Patrick’s 9 month relationship with Sabrina and their biggest hurdle being Britt causes Patrick to be torn?

    If Patrick had been paired with Elizabeth this “torn” story would make total sense because Patrick & Liz have a history of friendship and Patrick woudl have bonded with Cam and Aidan. There would be more stakes.

    What dude on any soap wasn’t torn when his returned from the dead spouse popped up? Bo Brady was torn between Hope and Billie, when Hope was clearly the love of his life on DAYS. Cass was torn between Kathleen and Frankie on AW. John was torn between Isabella and Marlena on DAYS. Heck the only soap character I can remember who turned to his current squeeze and said, “Sucks for you” is Michael Mancini, when Kimberly returned from the dead and he ditched Syd for her on Melrose Place.

    @ Jamey Giddens…I agree with your comment….to a degree. Patrick as well as the audience should be torn with this story, but they aren’t.

    Viewers were torn with the trios you cite above. The difference between all the trios you reference Hope/Bo/Billie, Kathleen/Cass/Frankie and Marlena/John/Isabella is that in all these cases we saw the love story between the men and their “second” loves. The writers created romances that rivaled the original pairings. The romance was seen on screen and it was played for longer than a few months before the “first” loves returned. We never saw this with Patrick & Sabrina.

    Not to mention in all the cases cited the audience didn’t know Hope/Marlena/Kathleen were alive so viewers could invest in the new pairings. GH vieweres never bought the “romance” between Patrick & Sabrina and that’s why it doesn’t make sense Patrick is torn.

    @nysam I think you’re right about the audience knowing Robin was alive being a hurdle for Patrina. I loved Bo and Carly and Bo and Billie on DAYS, even those Bo and Hope are my all-time favorite supercouple. Even though I knew characters could always return from the dead on a soap, it was okay to invest in Bo’s other lovers because I believed Hope “dead”.

    Patrick, however, is torn. He loved this woman. I don’t think he loved her even a fraction to the degree he loved Robin, but I do think he feels responsible for her.

    That’s the other thing re: what @TVGord said. If you judge simply by online fans of GH (Which are my bread and butter, so I love you guys! LOL), Sabrina is loathed almost universally. However, she tests high and gets tons of fan mail. So which master are showrunners to serve?

    Some GH viewers never bought it, not “all.” But what makes sense for the characters in a given situation shouldn’t necessarily be dictated by how some members of the audience “feel.”

    And I’m not saying I think Sabrina will be Patrick’s endgame. It’s unlikely that she will. Robin and Patrick seem practically legendary from what I’ve read. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy seeing the angst of this triangle play out. I don’t have the same grudge against Sabrina that some others do. She’s a character that I think has a purpose on the show, and I want to see how everyone resolves all of these circumstances beyond their control.

    I think it was cool that Robin went to Sabrina for help. It seems more civilized than I’ve seen other triangles play out. It may not continue to be civilized (in fact, how boring would it be if it did?), but at least there’s an acknowledgement that there are no victims here, just bad circumstances.

    I agree with JBJ that Patrick dumping Sabrina would be bad for the character if they want him to hang onto how much he’s grown. It would also send a horrible message to Emma for her to see her daddy treat a woman that she loves so callously. It’s often said girls take their cues on how to be treated by the way their fathers treat women. I don’t think I could forgive Patrick if he crushed Emma’s soul that way.

    I actually hope they weave Emma into the story in that regard. How will all of the adults’ behavior have an impact on her? That could add a fascinating element to this storyline!

    I was thinking the same thing. In fact, FInola Hughes — in addition to her almost unredaable choices about what may or may not have happened to Faison — was playing some extraordinary subtext as Anna in the episode where Emma asked if Robin had to go back to heaven. Her reactions to Emma’s questioning, the answers the adults gave her and how protective she was of Emma indicated that at least as far as Hughes was concerned as an actress, Anna was finely tuned to the impact of all of these shenanigans on Emma, whether we include Britt’s shenanigans with not-Patrick’s baby/Emma’s sister or not.

    For us old-timers, The Edge of Night featured a storyline very similar to this Patrick/Sabrina/Robin many moons ago, not in plot but in terms of emotions:

    Draper & April Scott had overcome many obstacles to be together. When Draper was falsely accused and convicted of murdering April’s mother (the delicious Margo Huntington), Draper was reportedly killed in a spectacular, fiery train crash — on a budget so tiny even Frank Valentini weep — as he was being transported to prison (shades of the lab explosion). Like Robin after that lab explosion, it was revealed immediately that Draper was alive, but in his case suffering from amnesia, where he went to Oakdale (a suburb of Monticello, not ATWT’s home town) and into the arms another woman who fell hopelessly in love with him (thinking he was her OWN presumably back-from-the-dead husband!). This story preceded the Tad/Ted Orsini story on AMC, as well as the deeply unpopular Jack/Julia 2 storyline on ATWT many years later.”

    Meanwhile back in Oakdale (bringing this back around to the broad strokes similar to Robin/Patrick/Sabrina), Draper’s “widow” April established a relationship with ultra good guy Logan Swift, and they fell in love. At a certain point Draper — also shades of Robin — was even held hostage for a time before he was finally reunited with April who’d finally gotten to a place where she could move on and accept Logan into her and life.

    The resulting several months were awkward as hell as Draper, April and Logan tried to negotiate the minefield of their relationships with each other (with Draper’s other “wife,” the unstable Emily Michaels also hurting in the midst of the all this emotional wreckage).

    The reason I bring it all up is that in this and the other stories Jamey brought up, the audience was well-aware that the presumed dead character was alive form the get-go and that the “other” people would eventually get hurt as “true loves” would eventually wind up back together. These are kinds of stories — with no “bad” guys — that adhere to the old Agnes Nixon mantra of “Make them laugh, make them cry, make them wait.”

    That Patrick is conflicted is natural and makes sense. Yes, he loves Robin most of all and (depending on Kimberly McCollough’s contract) is destined to get back together with her. But if he were to coldly dump Sabrina, after all of his declarations of (half-hearted) love and forged relationships with Emma, wouldn’t that make Patrick look like a total asshole, despite the wishes of some fans that he should simply kick Sabrina to the curb? Would that be true to the Patrick’s growth from callous player to a feeling, mature, loving man? Wouldn’t that make Patrick more unsympathetic, despite the dislike a vocal contingent have for Sabrina?

    This should be messy for everyone involved. And I like that as understanding as Sabrina is trying to be in this situation, she’s still got this hint of “Wait, bitch, this was supposed to be MY turn!” going on. It’s supposed to weirdly uncomfortable and tangled and, for the sake of genuine daytime drama, I’m glad it is playing out that way.

    I didn’t watch Bo/Hope storyline. I watched Billie and Bo fall in love and their romance. I LOVED Bo and Billie so when Hope came back, although I was a huge Bo/Billie fan, I understood his deep love for his first wife and why he was so drawn to her. Bo wanted to get answers as to what happened to Hope and where she was. It also helped that they recast the original Bo during this storyline to help with the history.

    I’m just not seeing this with Patrick. Just an hour before his wedding, he’s running around trying to see if Robin was alive but an hour after his non wedding, instead of asking Robin a billion questions, he runs after Sabrina? We saw that Robin was drugged, watched her father get shot but a needle, strapped down, etc. Watching Robin get tortured like that while Patrick runs after Sabrina just ruins this story when so far is been brilliant, at least the Robin rescue stuff. They should not have showed us what happened to Robin. I still wish this would have been Liz/Patrick/Robin.

    I actually like Sabrina, and there should be some confusion & hesitation on Patrick’s part, but the clear choice is Robin. It has always been played that there was a part of Patrick that couldn’t let go of Robin. Even right up to the point that he hesitated before saying “I do” to Sabrina. I don’t buy that he loves them both equally and it’s this agonizing choice. I think it’s more about Patrick loving Sabrina and not wanting to hurt her.

    The Hope/Bo/Billie storyline was completely different. Bo had 4yrs to move on from Hope. I loved him & Carly, but she was basically his rebound chick. Once he got to Billie, I feel that Bo was truly ready to move on with his life.It also helped that once they found Hope at Maison Blanche, she was an amnesiac going by the name Gina. She wanted nothing to do with her past until her memory returned via Alice’s puzzle box.

    They had to play this beat tho. I remember when Brenda came back from the dead in 2002. Jax SHITTED on Skye the day they got married, only to leave Brenda at the altar 6months later when he found out that she kissed Sonny.

    [quote=logan_echolls]Thanks for mentioning that what Jax did to Skye. Now my blood pressure done shot up![/quote]

    I will never forget that. Poor Skye was still in her wedding dress while that dirty ass Jax was sniffing around Brenda’s cooter smh

    I was never a big Skye-Jax fan and even I was appalled at the way he treated her on their wedding day.

    Bo & Hope was my childhood and I never thought I could love Bo with anyone else but first Carly then Billie came along and maybe because it was back in a time before spoilers and big return blasted on social media a person was able to get invested in couples.

    This was not the case with Puktrina – he literally took his ring off a month ago so we all knew he was still in love with his wife…and I don’t really buy into the “well we all knew Robin was alive” -

    Back in the day we all knew that Lucky was alive but fans still allowed themselves to let Jason & Liz into their hearts

    With Puktrina (for me) it was about chemistry they have none and I was rooting for Sabrina against Britt but once TPTB decided to make her the beacon of all that is shiny and new and shoved her down my throat I lost all interest. It’s what killed my love of JaSam.

    Again I would never expect Patrick to be as cold as Jax but I expected so much more of Patrick and the sh!t coming out of his mouth is making no sense

    I don’t dislike Sabrina character, but I need shit to be straight, she did not help Patrick in his dark time, Lulu/Maxie/Ephi did that job, he was fine and healthy when she finally came on to babysit, writers need to review their own facts, also he is not interested in who kidnapped his wife and WHY, all she/parents/Nick/Britta/Luke went through is ridiculous if it wasnt so aggrevating.

    Next, you will have Sabrina taking credit for the ratings increase… smdh

    I think this is the heart of Patrick’s confusion. If he goes back to Robin, he will have destroyed Sabrina’s heart. If he had known Robin were alive, he would never have “bothered” Sabrina. I get it.

    I can understand why Patrick is torn. Remember it took a while for him to start dating again never mind fall in love and get married again. I dont think it would be fair if Patrick dumped Sabrina on there wedding day. I mean a wife coming back from the dead is a lot for a guy to handle. How would Patrick be able to make a decision?

    I like Robin/Patrick as much as the next person but if and when Sabrina bows out, can she do it gracefully and not be treated like some old shoe or something.

    I agree with this. By the time Sabrina came, Robin had already been gone 6 months. And by the time that she & Patrick got together, it had been a year since the explosion. Epiphany’s tough love, Maxie moving in, & Lulu’s support during the pill popping helped Patrick those first 6 months.
