Soapnet Sneakpeeks:
Robin returns from her retreat to Rochester after stopping JUST short of cheating on Patrick. But there are still rough waters ahead; Robin is resistant to counseling, and Patrick's thinking of giving up. At the end of their rope, Robin seeks out Jason for advice, while Patrick turns to Elizabeth. (source)

3/23
Liz suggests to Patrick that he needs to remove Emma from Robin's care
Robin agrees to commit herself for treatment

I told you all before.
The battle is between Liz and Robin, Robin has to fight to get back her own life.
Patrick and Emma come to depend on Liz, Emma will not take to Robin at all when she returns, because she's getting that motherly affection and love from Liz. She's not use to Robin. Patrick will also still seek out Liz, because that's who he's become emotionally attached too.
Once again.
Scrubs have a trial seperation, but their is no divorce in sight. They are being tested, will they make it or not?
If not, Piz is your couple.
I'm telling you straight out as I have before.
Does the Brad stuff come out or does it fester in Patrick?
Brad is a factor, he will be coming onto the show. And he'll be interacting with Robin during her
separation from Patrick, Robin confesses all to Brad about being Nancy. Though they are apart
they agree not to see anybody else as they go to marriage counseling. But they won't trust
eachother because both Liz and Brad is always there, lurking in the background. Patrick and Liz,
never become romantic but you will see the attraction and them holding back, because Patrick will
actually try and reconcile with Robin. But she'll be no fool either, because she'll have Brad to pass the
time with, and feelings will start to develop her part, which she'll try to fight.

No it isn't. The baiters can sit on this board all day and fabricate crap to piss off people, but Patrick is not going to cheat on Robin, certainly not with Liz. But carry on anyway. It won't make it happen. Brian Frons would never put BH with one of his faves, Patrick. If KMc left the show, there are two other actresses they would try first. Neither are BH.

Patrick will be in love with Liz and Liz will have feelings for Patrick. Patrick will have to choose between Robin and Liz. Liz will win. Yes, Piz will have an affair while Robin is out of the picture for a while.
Spec or fact?
fact

^^
FALSe. There is nothing romantic between Patrick & Liz. You're being duped, they're looking for buzz and I think I know exactly the fanbase that is pushing this agenda.
It's not that hard, folks. If you lose Plan A...You concentrate on Plan B.

Tuesday March 24:
Robin goes home and tells Patrick (almost!) everything.
Robin faces reality.

Patrick/Liz : just friends. He cheats but not with Liz

This is spring is all about misunderstandings.

Patrick thinks Robin had sex with Brad.
Robin thinks Patrick is getting too close to Liz and well any other woman within his range that isn't her. Paranoid?
Jason sees Liz with Patrick and rebounds to Sam. Later regrets when he runs into Liz and she confides in him everything that has been going on with Scrubs. She's trying to be a friend, but thinks it would be better to stay away.

I came yesterday and dropped the info about Liz and Patrick having the conversation about how Patrick shouldn't do what Liz did when she and Lucky went though the same thing. The kiss happens later and Liz pulls back and reminds Patrick again that acting out when he's hurt is going to destroy everything he has. They do not sleep together. I don't know who keeps trying to stir up Scrub fans that they do, but I'm telling you that Patrick does not sleep with Liz.
--
Robin goes on vacation but they will have pre-taped some of her PPD group scenes and this is what you see of Robin during her vacation time. Robin will be the topic of discussion not just with Patrick and Liz also Jason and Sonny and Carly and Mac and Maxie, all will have conversations either about how to help Robin or her treatment.
--
Sorry I meant to add, that Liz and Patrick don't get close romantically at all, he kisses her once and it is acting out on his part because he is so hurt that Robin kissed Brad. He thinks it was more. Robin hits rock bottom and that is when Jason finds her. Robin still loves Patrick and Patrick still loves Robin. It will be obvious that they love one another.

That is completely untrue. You guys will find out for yourselves shortly that once Robin hits rock bottom that things improve more quickly. She gets treatment and she also is going to figure into Michaels recovery. KMc's vacation time isn't going to impact the Scrubs or PPD story as the actress will pretape pivotal scenes.
Someone who is promoting Patrick romantic with Liz is going to have a really big surprise in April.

Patrick and Liz will not sleep together, they just share a kiss.
But.
When Robin returns is when the fun will start.
What happens?
The reason why Robin goes all bitch kitty on Liz is for one reason, a woman in the park asks Robin where Emma's mom and dad, when she takes Emma to the park by herself to play. This takes place during Scrubs separation. Robin snap, crackles and pops off at both Patrick and Liz over the incident. And, you know that Patrick defends Liz. Which infuriates and makes Robin feel more inept.

Liz looks after Emma again next week when Robin hits rock bottom. She is also there for Patrick after Robin and he cannot agree on treatment (taking medication).

Wikipedia is saying Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) is returning in May

3/24
If you never believe anything, believe this. Brian Frons and Bob Guza write GH. They write what they want for those that interest them. They hope you watch it and they like to shock you into watching it. But, whether you watch or not won't change anything. They highlight the actors they want to promote and backburner the ones that bore or disinterest them.
They like Steve, Mo, Kelly, Sarah, Bradford, Laura and assorted newbies. ABC LOVES Scrubs and They're stuck with Tony by directive of ABC and it shows. They really don't think much about the others except as supporting the lead stories. That's all there is.

Regardless of what Frons greenlights, there is a considerable difference in the way GH and OLTL is written. OLTL uses it's vets, families weren't systematically exterminated, there are more medical stories on OLTL than GH and the POV for the female characters are considerably better than GH. So this isn't all Frons IMO. It's a combination of Frons, Guza and the actors. ES is NOT acting with the likes of SBu, Mo and TG who say what they will and won't do. GH is a whole different beast than the rest of the ABC soaps. People HERE just have no idea how bad it is backstage.
NONE.

BH is on recurring. She has been since November. It's the only reason she is still employed-- they can bump her down to recurring when they need or want to.
KMc is worth more than BH. She is more expensive and they cannot put her on recurring when they feel like it. They are keeping BH because she's cheap. She's not a favorite and wont be written for (hence she'll be in a prop for Scrubs side until and if KMc leaves in the fall).

KMc/Robin is the barometer as to the direction of the storyline. The storyline receiving any audience reaction is the PPD storyline at this point.

Patrick and Liz don't go together!! Fans will NOT like them as a couple, they better find a way for scrubs to work their way back together or ratings will continue to fall.

Anonymous,  March 24, 2009 at 8:05 AM  

I so agree with you. I have not watch the show in about 3 weeks. I know the Scrubs sometimes would like to be seen doing other roles, that fine. But to do them like I have been reading is so DISTASTEFUL, STUPID, SAD AND TOTALLY DEPRESSING. No PPD storyline is like that. And to have Robin and Patrick cheating on each other after all they meant to each other. Remember the Wedding VOWS that the Scrubs, I guess don't mean anything.

I DON'T CARE WHO IS WRITING THIS STORYLINE - FRONS/GUZA OR WHO IS DIRECTING GH, YOU GOT IT ALL WRONG.

I will not WATCH it until I read something good is going to happen for the SCRUBS and BABY EMMA.

YOU HAVE LOST ME AS A LONGTIME GH FAN. ESPECIALLY THE SCRUBS FANS.

I used to love to watch my DVR GH before any other show. I'm one of those working mothers - with 3 active school children. I must admit that I sometimes FF and just watch Jason and Patrick & Robin, though Maxie is really entertaining me more these days.

The point is that Robin being Nancy Green is hogwash. the writers of this show should all be fired. With the economy what it is...I'm sure GH could find better writers - for less money then they are paying these "people" who DISRESPECT both the audience, our intelligence, and the actors.

I find it really hard to believe that the writers think they are doing a good job...don't they look at the ratings.

Off with some heads....let's put fresh blood in there - that knows what they are doing.

I no longer watch GH first and FF through almost all the scenes. It isn't worth my time to watch how the writers are playing out Scrubs.

Again Frons - if you are listening - give them their own show....another NS - and better writers.

A very dissatisfied fan!!

I agree with you previous writer. This show is so Disgusting. They need to FIRE the WRITERS. They have no IDEA want to FANS are thinking. They should, because that is why GH is NEXT to LAST in the RATING.

As a working women and mother, I use to DVR GH all the time. Now I don't even watch it.

Now I am reading that LIZ (Robin Friend) wants Patrick to keep EMMA away from her and that EMMA will TOTALLY not like her MOM, but LIZ.
Keep LIZ as friend and don't start interfering in business. Keep her as a listener.

FRONS is you are reading all the FANS email/blog, get this show back on track. Get the Scrubs back or track soooon or I Guarantee that FANS will start DISappearing as they already have been doing, but even worse.

Make Liz and Brad go away. GHOFs has so many RUMORS floating around about Patrick and Liz. This is SO Dissatisfying to watch. How are the SCRUBS going to get back together if these two Butt heads stand between them. Or if this is something Stupid that GUZA/writers are planning. Once again, another stupid move. Another reason to Drive FANS away.

I just don't think the writers get it. You people are so clueless of a good thing you had with the Scrubs. OHHH, I think you do. Look at your ratings. DUHHHHH.

I know....let the whole year be a dream of Spinelli's. Afterall, if he could conjure up Santa Claus....let him have dreamt the whole last 2 months. I don't know give him a very high fever...

Start over again...with New Year's Day!!

What a concept.Viewers will tune in...like mad. A little bit of Dallas and a little of Desparate Housewives....

Get some writers who can fix the hole they have created....

Robin would not ABANDON her child

I wonder where the writer found the info that says women with PPD more likely will cheat on their husband.Is this Guza's book? Did the writer made a mistake instead of searching for PPD symptoms they googled DID .Very disrespectful to all women suffering from this terrible PPD illness.I totally agree with the article in Port Charles Chuckles that the writer is suffering from clinical insanity and needs to be locked-up in the mental hospital ASAP. Could someone in GH please clean-up all this mess esp.the ugly rumors circulating regarding the Scrubs future.We as viewers cannot tolerate this PPD storyline and would like to have some comfort to a happy ending and bring back together this amazing couple.Is that too much to ask?

Anonymous,  March 24, 2009 at 1:22 PM  

GUZA/Writers are you going to do the right thing by the Scrubs Fans? If not, for one let me know now and I will stop reading or watching this show. Today, was so disappointing. Now you have Robin best friend in with her husband and Patrick is having Liz keep a secret. By the way, where is Liz with her own (2) boys. She need to get her a life of her own. I have nothing against her, but Patrick can find other people to lean on.

Not go and have an affair. We all remember how big of a Dog he was.

What are you doing Writers? I really think you believe this storyline is going to draw in Fans. Wrong. It is moving fans more and more and more away one of the favorite soaps on TV. Destroying on of the favorite couples of Soap World on TV.

In all BYE, NonFeeling Writers. I have had it with this after watching and reading all the blogs on the Internet on how bad you are Dogging out the Scrubs.

Anonymous,  March 24, 2009 at 3:41 PM  

To the writers of GH. This is on the behalf of the SCRUBs (Patrick and Robin). I have been reading other Blogs that their contracts are coming up for renewals. DO NOT DESTROY OUR SCRUBS.

I WANT YOU TO RENEW THE SCRUBS CONTRACTS. YOU KNOW AS WELL AS ALL THE FANS, THAT THEY ARE THE COUPLE OF ABC SOAP.

ONE THING, CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE THEM BETTER STORYLINES THAN THE PPD. THE PPD IS SO HORRIBLE FOR FANS TO WATCH. I AM TELLING YOU IF YOU GIVE THEM BETTER STORYLINES THE FANS WILL COME BACK.

HAVE THE PATRICK AND ROBIN WITH MORE LOVE SCENES, LIKE THAT HAD BEFORE THEY WERE MARRIED. IF POSSIBLE, I WANT TO SEE THE SCRUBS FOR YEARS AND YEARS TO COME.

IF YOU CAN KEEP THE SCRUBS HAPPY AND MARRIED, YOU WILL HAVE ME AS A FAN. GIVE THEM SCENES ALSO WERE THE INTERACT WITH OTHERS, BUT KNOW AFFAIRS, CHEATING AND LYING. THEY ARE BETTER THAN THAT AND THEY ARE THE COUPLE HAS BEEN AND NOW ARE MORE REALISTIC IN GOOD ACTING THAT YOU HAVE THRONE AT THEM.

I'm SO w/ you guys! I have STOPPED watching the Scrubs clips. Why bother? This is NOT how PPD takes place. Talk bout doing your research. Guza needs to be exiled. He's a dummkopf. He's had a bee in his bonnet re: Scrubs for a while. They need to get Sri Rao. Guza sux balls! I refuse to start watchin GH again till they get a normal, believable story. As is, Scrubs was the only s/l I watched. Cause they used to be BELIEVABLE. Not so much anymore.

Anonymous,  March 24, 2009 at 5:00 PM  

I think I've figured it out. Guza tanked the GH ratings so that when he starts negotiating with Patrick and Robin (Jason and Kim) - he can offer them less money.

It is all about the money.

Once he gets them hooked (re-signed contract) he will give them a story line again. Until then; let's trash both of their characters; PPD; their marriage; their friendship; their love; nothing is off limits.

Bring back Nancy Green - I love seeing Kim in any role...I've been a fan since FAME.

Better yet, I hope that Kim and Jason tell Guza to "stick it" and they leave. I would rather they leave the soap than put up with the storyline they are living on GH.

Guza is as irresponsible (in the 180 degree opposite view) as Tom Cruise was when he said there is no such thing as PPD.
