Should Sam Find Comfort in Patrick’s Arms More Often on General Hospital? (POLL)



On this week’s Daytime Confidential podcast we discussed Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) recent scene (pictured above) and if the two should become a couple. For me, it’s the perfect solution to two problems.

Lightning did not strike for a third time between Michael Easton and Monaco as Silas and Sam, so getting her out of his orbit would solve that painful problem. Meanwhile, Patrick and Sam discovering a more intimate connection would free him of saccharin Sabrina (Teresa Castillo).

Plus, if Kimberly McCullough ever returns as Robin, the payoff of Robin vs. Sam would be significantly more compelling than Robin vs. Sabrina.

Should Sam and Patrick fall for each other?

Yes! They would make a great couple.

No way to Patrick and Sam. I can't stand Patrick and Sabrina, but he and Sam have nothing in common and I can't see the ride or die chick putting away her black clothes and gun to be a doctor's wife.

I like Sam and Silas, but, again, I have trouble seeing Sam as a doctor's wife. I think it's more that I like KM's chemsitry with ME.

I would have loved Patrick and Liz, but now I am on board with Niz. They should just recast Robin. I know that's not a popular opinion, and I love KMc, but it doesn't make sense to have Robin off alive somewhere. Either kill her off for real or recast.

I don't see any chemistry with Patrick and Sam. I also don't see any chemistry with Patrick and Sabrina either.
I did see a spark of something between Patrick and Liz that I would be up for GH exploring.
And while Sam/Silas didn't start off all that great, the chemistry between them has really grown over the last few weeks.

ROBIN NEEDS TO RETURN and reunite with Patrick! No recast just work with Kimberly like they were supposed to. ROBIN DOESN'T DIE FOR ANYONE and certainly not so Patrick can move on.
Just no to Liz, Sam or the dumb nurse. Should have put him with Britt till Robin returned and we all found out Britt was behind kidnapping too.

Where is the Robin choice?

I think they have stuff in common..both lost their spouses, both are single parents. Both attractive. At least Sam won't be seen as Patricks older child lol...and it would be very soapy if/when they decide to bring Robin back. I'd ship them. But I ship Sam/Silas more

Not really feeling the Sam & Patrick pairing but I'll take anything that will rid him of Sabrina with the quickness!

Where's the option for Patrick to reunite with Robin and Sam to mix it up with AJ?

There are millions of people out there who have lost spouses and are single parents, that doesn't mean they have the things that matter in common. Things like moral perspectives, hobbies, personal interests, and common goals. Patrick saves lives and was very much against the kind of violence Sam approved of and participated in for years with Jason. Patrick is into car racing while Sam is into shootouts and kidnappings. Patrick reads medical journals while Sam reads gun magazines. Patrick wants a solid and safe life with his daughter while Sam runs towards action and danger all the time.

I liked Patrick and Robin a lot because they seemed like a real couple. They had common goals, values, interests, and morals. Sure, Robin always supported Jason, but she made the choice not to approve of or participate in his dangerous lifestyle. Robin always wanted Jason to be a better person and get out of the mob. I just can't see Sam switching from mob moll to doctor's wife when she was the only one to encourage Jason to stay in the mob and repeatedly told him she didn't care about what he did for Sonny. How does that kind of morality work with Patrick who thinks his wife died to save Sam's hitman husband?

I think it would be more soapy to pit Liz vs. Robin because they were such close friends and Robin told Patrick and Liz that she wanted them to move on together. Imagine Robin coming home to find out that Patrick and Liz did exactly what she told them to do and now she has to either deal with it or fight for Patrick.

It may be an unpopular opinion, but I agree. These characters can't stay in limbo waiting for something that may never happen.

I realize that Liz is with AJ now,but I don't see them as a forever couple. If Robin doesn't come back, Piz may still be a viable option, especially if Britt & Nik take the next step. They have everything in common. This way, they could actually move Sabrina off the canvas. Yes, Sabrina and Liz are friends now, but that could change--and maybe it should, because it would be loads of fun. Sabrina does have a BSC component.

I love the fact that Patrick is empathetic to Sam's fear about Danny. But with Siam right in front of me, I can't even think about that right now.

I agree, it would be very soapy if Robin came back to find Liz & Patrick together.

I don't know why, but I needed a subject line to save my comment. *grumble*

They have loads of chemistry and could burn a set down with their fire but everything js3557 said. The pairing isn't plausible.

patrick/sam/silas triangle that way when robin comes home it would be easy to move patrick out of the running. kelly's sam has chemistry with everyone and i see it with both pairings.

Well. I don't know.

I mean, I know a lot of people have been hoping for this pairing, and it would certainly make a LOT more sense than the inane pairings of "Uncle Patrick and Saint Sabrina" or "Sam and Sil-Ass". But I still think it would be kinda weird. And IF and when Robin does come back, I want there to be a clear shot at her getting Patrick back. As it stands now, there is. I'm sorry but Sabrina is such a non-entity, she could never hold a candle to Robin. Even the portrayer Teresa Castillo said that Sabrina would step aside if Robin came back. But with Sam, it would be kind of different. First of all, she is a lead on the show, and she's pretty popular, too. So with her it wouldn't be so cut and dry. Many people love both Sam and Robin. So somehow I don't think people would want these two mixed. I don't think this would be a good pull situation. I think people will always love Scrubs together and want them to have each other. And on the other hand, I don't think anyone wants Sam to try to hang on to someone she really can't have. It's like mixing Luke and Anna, or having Luke cheat on Laura with Holly. Those were horrible, ridiculous pairings. Mixing two supercouples together really never works.

Couldn't vote.

YES!!!!!!!! I never would've thought of them before! I never liked sabrina with patrick she was a kid and now she looks like an adult but there's still no maturity there. Patrick deserves a much better storyline and going into the more dangerous world of PC would be interesting. Plus you're so right about robin there was always tension between her and sam. if she ever returns will be so much more interesting to watch. Right now if robin walked through the door he'd drop sabrina so fast. I want to see a more meaningful and exciting relationship for him and sam is that. plus silas is sooooo boring i love the actor but come on that's the best they could do!!!!!

Hell, no! Let Sam move on with Silas and leave Patrick alone.

YES! I'd really like this couple and I think they could bond over their similar situations. Kelly Monaco is way too gorgeous to be with Michael Easton's characters -- I don't think he's attractive at all. @js3557 -- Sam never approved of Jason's lifestyle choices, she just accepted him for who he was, there's a huge difference. Tolerance is not approval, not judging someone is not the same thing as approval either.

I say recast Robin AND Jason and create a Robin/Patrick/Sam/Jason quadrangle. Carlivati's great at weaving stories together so I have no doubt it could be done. And can you imagine the fallout if Robin and Jason came back to find their respective spouses with each other?

I know on paper Sam and Patrick might look like an odd pairing, but I think it's because of those differences they have the potential to be an interesting/dynamic couple. Not to mention how good they look together and the chemistry - which I agree Kelly Monaco seems to have with everyone.

I wish I could answer this but you didn't give the option of we need to see more. I really like Silas and Sam. but I'm not opposed to seeing what might happen with these two if Robin is not coming back and it does not look like she is.. But who are they going to put with Silas not Ava I hope they are not chemistry.

I said this on an earlier thread.. Yes Please. I would love to see these to hotties keeping each other warm till their true loves Jason and Robin returned. Kemo and JT have a ton of chemistry to sale this.

I thought it would be a great storyline for Patrick and Sam to be in an arc together as parents who had suffered a lost of a spouse...emmy worthy stuff they "could or could not" have gone romantic although I think they'd rock it.

But Patrick was stuck in Sabrinaville and Sam has gone through four renditions of ME's characters like a hemroid, its like outside of a orchestrated pairing/triangular driven storyline there is no wiggle room its Michael w/Starr/KiKi.

Carly must be paired with a RoHoward character. Why? If that's what they want you can still have other stories along the way ... a journey. I don't understand this type of storytelling. GH writes lousy triangles and the quads are even worse. I don't ship couples; I ship story.

Please don't write Elizabeth in yet another triangle/quad that's all she gets since 2002 back to back triangles. Its somebody else's turn now.

I say free Patrick from Sabrina. Sam's not my favorite character in the world, but I think she'd be a better choice for Patrick. They could bond over their shared experience of losing a spouse and being left with a child, and they could experience angst over her tolerance of the mob and the coming appearance of her father. They'd have a far more interesting relationship than the Patrina crap that seems to have no end in sight.

LIGHTENING DOES STRIKE AGAIN for the THIRD time! No matter what characters Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco play, these two talented and gifted actors just own the screen. Through their nuanced acting abilities, they can drive STORY with a look, a touch, without saying a single word. It's amazing and sets the GOLD STANDARD for 'Onscreen Soulmate' pairings!

The juxtaposition that RC & Team gave us with the "two Hugs" was so sneaky or obvious, depending on your POV...brilliant! When comparing the 'hugs' side by side, the screen shots leave little to interpretation. Patrick-tall & erect, cool expression/Sam-head to his chest, arms around his waist/f/u conversation-polite & professional. Silas-leans in & bear hug, emotional expression/Sam-head to his face, arms around his neck/f/u conversation-personal & emotional.

The proponents of a Sam & Patrick pairing are, if nothing else, loyal to their cause...however, "resistance is futile"!!!

At first I wanted them together, but now I just don't see how Sam and Patrick would do as a couple, so I'd have to say no to Patrick and Sam & yes to their current pairings.

Back when Saint Jason was pushing his wife away because of the baby he thought might be Franco's, I wanted Patrick and Sam to happen.

It would've been a great story if Patrick would've wanted revenge on the holier than thou Jason because of Robin's death and vowed to take his wife and child away from him and then accomplished it. For me that would've made great story. It would have been a nice triangle or even a quad if they brought Robin back after Patrick had moved on with Sam.

I also would've accepted Liz with a moved on Patrick and then they could've had Robin come back a while after they were together and that would've been great story. I seriously wouldn't know which woman to root for in either situation. Unlike a lot of people I like Sam, Liz, and Robin and wanted them all to have wonderful stories!

That being said, Silas is slowly growing on me. I liked Caleb/Livvie on PC, I loved Sam/McBain on GH, I'm hoping to get there with Silas/Sam eventually. I wouldn't mind a Silas/Sam/Patrick triangle at all.
