I hate to be a pest, but do you have anything you can spill on the Hospital crisis or Robin's PPD.
sorry I logged out
Robin's mood swings should be on screen the week of Jan. 5
not going near the Hospital crisis ... I like my job
Mr. Craig returns for revenge with a deadly game of truth or dare for the PC residents.
Hope the hospital fairs better than the MC.
The hospital crisis only lasts 3 weeks and is over in early February.
Mr. Craig puts people into pairs at the hospital. He asks them questions and if they are not honest he shoots the person they are with.
People I know are at the hospital:
Let the truth spilling begin
Carly tells Patrick she thinks Robin is off her rocker and needs help. Patrick agrees with Carly in front of everyone to keep Craig from shooting Robin (again).
Leyla admits she tried to steal Patrick from Robin even though she knew he loved Robin.
How do they pull off the above when Leyla is one of the first killed and she is found dead after a public argument with Robin?
NB was let go prior to the studio going dark.
Some of the drops in the IL are bull except for the way Leyla is dying is true and people will believe it is Robin but it isnt her of course.
Meanwhile poor Patrick breaks down when he confesses to brother than he thinks wife-y Robin is having a Nervous breakdown.
Oh well.......dem's the breaks.
Hospital crisis mid-January. It'll affect the whole canvas bigtime.
Drama for Sonny/Kate/Olivia regaurding Dante.
Patrick is panicked
Nik comes to Nadine's rescue
Lulu is injured, Johnny goes crazy
A few Q's are present as well as most of the hospital staff
Jason and Sam are NOT present. Until they risk their lives to make a rescue of course. They plan one together, everyone they love is inside.
Maxie saves Spinelli
Sonny cares more about Carly then he had originally thought
Secrets are coming out
Revelations, explosions, and danger oh my
should end early feburary.
The hospital crisis is only 3 WEEKS. The show leaps three weeks ahead and then is told through flashbacks. The reason some people keep insisting six weeks with it ending the beginning of March is because originally the plan was for it to happen at the end of Nov and climax in mid to late January (6 weeks).
It was changed and shortened almost 2 months ago.
Can you PLEASE tell me what Robin is doing during it??
She is at the hospital. The PPD story will be wrapped up by the end of the crisis. The PPD story is much ado about nothing and is very short lived because it is NOT PPD.
Holy cow, really?? What is it then??
And some people have dropped that she is a hinderence or incompetent during the crisis and inadvertently hurts people with some bad drugs. Do you have this?
Robin's "symptoms" are really tied to the crisis at the hospital. But they are going to play it heavily as PPD.
I'm still waiting for someone to tell us what the never before done thing is that Guza was harping about in the magazines last year when this was first bandied about? Because this sounds exactly like the MC crisis, told in flashbacks, it's been done not once, but twice on this show, already.
The difference is that the MC and the B&W ball showed a flash of the future and then spent the rest of the time telling how it happened. This time the show is actually 3 weeks ahead. About a third of the airtime shows scenes in the future with different people remembering how things changed so much in such a short time. Its similar but not the same because viewers will see far more of the future from many perspectives.
I think what they are saying is - and Insider, correct me if I am wrong! - her symptoms of PPD turn out to NOT be PPD like everyone thinks, but actually symptomatic of what goes down with the hospital crisis, IE bad meds.
Maybe Robin has been getting bad meds, or got bad meds, and that is what is causing her emotional issues, not actual PPD.
Which would make more sense since PPD doesn't kick in two months later like this, and you don't be all happy and have a nice wedding with PPD.
That is correct. Robin was written to have baby blues to mislead her family and the viewers for the upcoming story.
Just so you know, there has been talk behind the scenes for several months of Robin having a "problem" with her HIV or even having her develop aids. This may be tied to her meds being screwed up but that is just speculation on my part.
Insider if you are still here, how is patrick during all this? Is he really worried about her and helping her through all this?
It will cause some problems between them because Patrick makes some choices while Robin is believed to have PPD that Robin may have trouble forgiving him for down the road. Scrub fans are not going to be too fond of the advice Liz gives him either.
Liz does not give him advice. Someone else will and it wil help them go through this. Don't give up hope Scrubbies. I;m telling you guys February will be a good month. That is all I can say right now.
I don't know who this insider is, but I believe this one. I believe you're the one that says Patrick leans on Matt. No committing of Robin, and that Scrubs come out stronger in the end. Correct?
Yes. Matt will be there for his brother. KH gave you guys a head up. Listen to what she said regarding July [should be January] 22.
