Good Girls Gone Wild: Elizabeth vs. Robin?




General Hospital's Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) have been spending a lot of time together lately and I can't help but wonder if there isn't a bit of screen testing going on by TPTB. People who read Daytime Confidential know that most of us who blog here are Liason fans, but considering Frons allegedly put the kibosh on the popular couple I started to think about what options there were to keep Herbst written into the show. A romantic pairing with Patrick was the first possibility that came to mind and after talking about it with Regan - who alluded to the possibility in her General Hospital Spoilers a few days back - I thought I'd put it up as a poll.

Imagine Elizabeth versus Robin (Kimberly McCullough). It wouldn't be as slaptastic as Elizabeth versus Sam (Kelly Monaco), but it could be a great telling of Good Girls Gone Wild.

Would you like to see Elizabeth with Patrick or Elizabeth versus Robin?

I'd love Elizabeth and Patrick. They'd make a great couple.

I say keep Lizard away from Scrubs, I hate the destruction of Scrubs...

With that said if they have to ruin Scrubs and give Patrick another girl then Liz isn't the worst person...

I just have 0 faith for Guza to write a proper triangle when he can't do that for Liason/JaSam -.-

I like the scenes with Patrick and Liz , I think they could be a great couple

I hope they don't do it and if they do put them together I hope they don't rush it and have them betray Robin behind her back cause all we (LIZ FANS) need is another reason for the haters to say that Liz stole someone else's man

I agree with LA - I mean it is a Soap, I want Soapy fun, but I don't want certain people to have more fuel for their hate of Liz.

If I can't have Liz with numero uno hottie than why not numero dos. Me likey a nice triangle even if my girl don't win, it gives her something to do besides jotting down hospital scripts

Let me guess EET - you are rooting for at ONS for Liz and Patrick to add more fuel to your hatred of Liz and BH? Well no thank you. I don't need to see Liz villianized like this. She wouldn't sleep with a married man, especially one who is married to one of her close friends.

I really like Liz/Patrick scenes but as friends - like how I like scenes between Alexis/Jax. Under other circumstances I could one day see a pairing between these two but not while Scrubs is married. The stuff they were hinting at in early 2006 before they went back to Liason did interest me but they went with the better chemistry factor and chose to go with Liason. It would make me sick to watch the writers go there with Liz's character at this point, and Patrick as well.

LOL! Luke is drumming up a story for his girl. I doubt that Liz gets her claws into Patrick, Liz and Lucky seems more likely.

But Lucky is making goo-goo eyes at NotEmily and Liz it doing the same to Patrick -.-.

Just had a thought that if they are thinking of putting Patrick and Liz together maybe they are going for mix up with Jason and Robin???
What I heard that is that they are not going to put JaSam together for the moment, so maybe they are planing Robin and Jason again?????
What do You Think??????????

I personally would love to see Jason and Robin together, but I didn't see the first time, so i have no context i just think they would be good together and maybe she could get him out of the mob lol.

I just hate how marriage is destroyed on soaps -.- VOWS actually are supposed to mean something ...

McD720: uhm...Zander? LOL (they hooked up while he was married to Emily - though it was the night he saw Em and Nik together, so the marriage was over.). But I'm not starting a fight here! I get where you're coming from McD720! I just got done posting on a thread where I was arguing that Sam had been villianized and was written out of character. So believe me, I understand what you're saying, lol!

I voted for Liz vs. Robin... why not? At least it'll be something different. I don't know if TPTB will actually do it, but they have been doing a lot of Liz/Patrick chem testing.

Daisy - I know about her hooking up with Zander but Emily had already dumped him and Emily was off getting it on with Nikolas(yuck, couldn't stand NEM). And yes Zander had just caught NEM together. So I don't really think that is the same thing. It is a valid point to bring up and after I posted I did remember about Zander but it was different circumstances. Liz wouldn't have gone there with him if Emily and him were trying to work things out. Emily had made her choice at that point and it was obvious to all parties that it was Nikolas.

I am against a Patrick/Liz pairing even though I know its the only way BH will actually get screen time. It would make absolutely no sense for them to get together, which probably means that it will happen.
If KMC were to leave than I would be okay with it, if they took their time. Of all the other actresses we have scene JT tested with during those few "special episodes", Patrick did not have chemistry with Carly or any other character they showed him with except for Liz, in my opinion.
Scrubs have had so much drama and still do that adding on a triangle is overload.

Liz's one night stand bothers peeps, but Sam boinking Sonny and Jax in the same night and humping her stepfather's leg like a prairie dog, on her mother's floor no less, was okie dokey smokey! Oh that's right, Liz's sins are all perfectly in character, but the mean old writers were writing Spam into a corner everytime she did something heinous, even though the character came on as a con artist... Oh and riddle me this about the phrase 'Liarson", I am taking it that Liz haters don't like the fact that she lied about Jake's paternity, interesting, so...it was okay that Spam lied to five men and conned them out of their fortunes, killing the last one when he caught her with her hands in the cookie jar and lied by omission when she stood by and watched a madwoman kidnap the child of a man she claims to love? Yeah, I totally get the righteous indigestion about Liz's big "lie". (Scratches head) Tongue

Jamey, I think the issue that people have with Liz is that she never admits that what she has done is wrong.

Whether or not Emily had just broken up with Zander, Liz should not have slept with her friend's husband. Whether or not she caught Lucky with Maxie, she should not have immediately went to Jason (who was in love with Sam at the time). She should have went to grandma's house and cried it out.

She is not doing ONSs with some random fellow she met at work or at a bar. She is sleeping with people that she knows are involved emotionally with others. Just because she gets knocked up each time doesn't make it ok.

Hell, when Elizabeth came to town she kept going after Lucky (even though she knew he liked her sister).

Liz must be doing something right as the "Queen of ONS" cause the boys keep going back to be with her and not just for sex.

If these men are so emotionally invloved than why are they sleeping with her if you are going to blame Liz than u have to blame the men too...It takes two to get your freak on

Emily was cheating on Zander when he and Liz hooked up. Jason had broken up with Spam, who at the time that Liz went to Jason, was screwing her own mother's husband. Nothing Liz has ever done on this show even rates in comparison to all the dirty deeds Sam has pulled, yet Liz is called out constantly as a "liar". It's laughable. It's like fans of a 700-pound woman calling a 200-pound woman fat!

No Daisy Clover, I most assuredly don't want Liz paired with Patrick. It would be soap opera suicide for the character to come between Scrubs when Robin is suffering from, well, whatever she's supposed to be suffering from, and I think TIIC know this. No better way to water down the pesky popularity and bargaining power of a character they could already care less about than by having her breakup the one stable couple on the show.

LMAO Liz is not a needy strumpet! She went YEARS without a man, when was the last time Spam let her nether regions cool down for a spell? Liz has a job and takes care of herself. She didn't use her poor, special brother as an excuse to pull off shameful cons because she was too lazy and shiftless to get a job, that was Sam. Sam exists for Jason. She was tossed to him like a pregnant rag doll and she hung on for dear life! He felt sorry for her, then grow to care about her—if you feed a stray long enough it will start to feel like your own—then when he was done with her she fair lost her mind and started terrorizing innocent women and children! Spam is an emotionally unstable, wretch who lives and dies for one man, who was never all that into her. I didn't like Jason and Courtney either, but I do believe he loved her with his whole heart, just like Robin and just like Liz. Spam and Carly he simply felt sorry for.

If Ric and Lucky thought Liz would take them back, there would be skid marks all over PC! Jason is staying away from Liz in order to protect the woman that he loves and their son. Do you honestly think if Frons wasn't pushing so hard for JaSam, that Jason, would willing go back to Sam? No! Sonny, Jax, Ric, Lucky, Jerry or any of the other men that Sam has conned are NOT looking for another round with her. Heck, even Lucky was calling Liz's name in the toxin hot tub. I want Robin and Liz to friends, since Emily, NotEmily or whatever her name is not available. Liz belongs with Jason and should be friends with Patrick, because, if Frons can't get JaSam his way, he will derail ANYONE who stands in his way, and WE ALL know that is Liz.... Frons' manufactured pairings of Journey and JaSam don't stand a chance if they can't work with Liz being in Jason's orbit, because they can't take the heat.

Oh EricasEvilTwin... that is awesome... so so so so awesome!!!

Lizard could have a ONS and get preggers with Patricks kid and then once again try and pass it off as Lucky's... That would be so funny.

Also... Sam and Robin are friends after the whole save Jason life things... We could have Super Sam and Robin team up against the Lizard!

oh that makes me excited!

I don't know. Jamey, you say it would be character suicide for Liz, but let's face it, if they wrote it as some sort of illicit affair, it would damage Patrick's character much more than Liz's. So if you feel TPTB would do this specifically to hurt the character of Liz, do you feel they would be doing it to hurt Patrick as well?

I think it depends on how they write it. My guess is that *if* they even go with this, they would have Robin and Patrick break up before anything happened between him and Liz. Now people would still think it's wrong (I forsee *lots* of debating if this were to happen, lol), but it wouldn't be that bad.

Plus, it would mean ReH in a front burner story, possibly paired with a leading man, w/ increased screentime. And if this were to happen, I think it would prove that TPTB *do* like ReH.

Now if they have Liz drug Patrick, strip down to her undies and ravish him against his will, then I would say Yes, TPTB are trying to destroy her character. But something tells me that's not going to happen, lol

Yes, then Sam, heroine that she is, could find out and hire thugs to torment the sweet little tykes in a park.Oh that's right, they weren't thugs, they were "actors". I guess Cam shouldn't have too many scars from "actors" attacking his helpless mother and baby brother...

Daisy Clover, if this were a well-written soap, one that told stories fully with beginnings, middles and ends, then I wouldn't mind a Liz/Patrick affair, because it could be like Nick and Phyllis on Y&R and drive story for years, but this soap plays politics like no other. Affairs, break ups, make ups, etc. are all written in to destory characters, water down fanbases and pimp favorites, so I would be afraid of the outcome.

Amen Jamey! Couldn't agree with you more. Bad storytelling/backstage politics is all GH can do these days. That's why it is off my DVR. And nothing on the horizon is gonna bring me back.

I predict GH is only trying to prevent a fan uproar in even keeping Greg Vaughan, Rebecca Herbst or Megan Ward around. They know they are popular, but since they aren't popular with the brass, the show has to reluctantly write for them (read: write them into corners) until their fans don't give a damn anymore, then they can break them in contract negotiations or simply fire them without a lot of hoopala. This has been ABC's strategy for quite awhile. Frons isn't going to pull a Corday and fire two biggies at once, he bides his time and orders writers to weaken actor's over time.

It won't damage Patrick or Liz. They would be the golden children because neither can never do anything wrong. They way Guza writes the character of Robin -- it would end up being all her fault anyway.

Well, I certainly agree with that! I know you won't agree, but that's exactly how I felt about the JaSam breakup *and* the LuSam breakup.

And it's funny because this is reminding me of when I heard Sam and Lucky were going to hook up. I was like "NOOOOO!!! How much more can you damage these character??" And even though the writing was atrocious for them, the actors made it work. Oh well... Sad

Well, I'm *hoping* if they go with this story it'll be written well.

Here we go again...Same old debate, different thread...LOL

Continuing the discussion from here and the "not a happy place" thread - I think Lizard has been written "out of character" plenty of times, as has Sam as has Jason as has etc. etc.

I think it was out of character for Lizard to have "forgiven" Sam for watching Jake be kidnapped - greatful for saving him and protecting her, yes, but forgiven NAH.

I think it was out of character for good mom Lizard who for years said that if the opportunity presented itself, she would never be with Jason because of the danger, would suddenly be begging Jason for booty calls all over town.

I thought it was out of character for her to be begging when she would be much more apt to ask him to fix her thermostat and continue with the come help me paint scenarios.

Etc. etc.

What is NOT out of character is a guy in distress over the woman he loves and the relationship he is in starts drinking and ever helpful Lizard is there to provide comfort (sex) Thats an accurate description of what happened with Zander, its an accurate description of what happened with Jason and from the sounds of what has been spoiled here and elsewhere, it sounds exactly like what is being spoiled about Piz. No one has said or is saying that the men were unwilling or lacking in responsibility for THEIR actions, I think some of us would just like an acknowledgement of LIZARD's reponsibility in it all.

And no one here is making the argument that every bad thing Sam ever did was out of character, just the Jake stuff.

Perhaps my understanding of the friendship code is different, but when Denise Richards made the statement that her relationship with Richie Sambora was okay because he and Heather had been on the outs, I had to stifle my gag reflex. I dont care if my friend is off having sex with a prince, I am STILL not going to bed her hubby if for no other reason than the fact that the situation is complicated and I want to be clear that my loyalty is with my friend and ONLY my friend. I dont care if they get divorced. My friends men are OFF LIMITS unless maybe the friend dies.

Why would I like to see Lizard vs. Robin - I think the show suffers from the very thing Carly accuses Sonny of - the Madonna and the Whore complex. We always seem to get the triangle where one woman is sweet and docile and maternal and the other woman is more independent, prone to bad judgement, more sexual and easily demonized. (think Lily vs. Brenda, Carly vs. Emily, Lizard vs. Sam) This would be a different spin on things - two characters that are typically considered "good" girls acting out of the "good" girl mode. Could be interesting, but given that Scrubs just had Emma, I would like them to be the end game.

LIASONADDICT: It's hard to say for sure because the story hasn't actually happened (and might not, lol) but I would blame Patrick much more! He's the one that's married, he made the committment and to top it off Robin is sick. The idea of him sleeping with another woman is disgusting to me. Don't get me wrong, Liz wouldn't be innocent, but Patrick would piss me off much more.

It's like when Sam slept with Lucky. It got labelled (on message boards *and* on the show) as Sam seducing and taking advantage of Lucky. It was a poor Lucky thing, or "Lucky's not as responsible. Sam is the slut". I like Lucky, but that was total bull! He was married and he screwed around, it was his fault. What Sam did was wrong, but Lucky was far worse, imo.

interesting good girl vs good girl take EricasEvilTwin, but the problem is why would liz need comfort? she's not under stress she's happy with her life. she's not in a relationship and last i saw her feelings for lucky were beginning to resurface. i think it does liz no favors for her to even be thinking about patrick in that way ESPECIALLY when liz is suppose to be Robin's friend and ESPECIALLY when she knows what infidelity does to a marriage. i could understand patrick's desire for comfort but liz no. it would just make her look bad again.

Yes it would make her look bad and it would make Patrick look bad but its still sort of an interesting triangle. Moreover, one of the things Maxie has called Lizard on is her obsession with being SEEN as the good girl even when she does bad things. How will she deal with the fallout, when everyone no longer thinks she walks on water? COuld be cool to see how she deals with that.

Lizard would not be the one in need of comfort, Patrick would. She's just lonely - Jason turned her down for quite the time, she was too sick to take care of bizness with Lucky before Rebecca caught his attention, so now its Patrick or bust LOL.

I think it makes much more sense for Liz to turn to Nikolas. He could bitch to her about Lucky and NotEmily and she could lend a sympathetic ear. Then he could start making more excuses to come by to see the boys, then the two start falling for each other, causing a more Cane vs. Abel drama for Laura's sons, and cause Sam to lash out at Liz for coming between two brothers, it could reignite their feud as well.

EET, I think I like your way of thinking. Of course Liz comes off looking better because they are putting her up against "bad girl" Sam. Let's see how she would fare going up against another "good girl".

It's really funny that I don't care for Liz much now. I used to really like her before she slept with Zander. Especially when they could have just re-paired him with Gia after Emily broke his heart again.

I have always been a fan of Liz/Patrick. They have always had good chemistry.

Especially after the episode that showed Patrick and Robin living different lives and Patrick and Liz was together. They were great together.

But it would be a huge HUGE mistake to get Liz with Patrick after he just had a baby with Robin.

Also I don't want the Scrub fans to go crazy and start making death threats to Rebecca Herbst because I know for a fact they will.

Patrick and Robin need to stay together. They have not had one moment of happiness since their marriage that was about 4 months ago. They need to be left alone.

Also, Liz is Robin's friend. GH needs more friends. She shouldn't go there.
