By clicking on ‘Read More’, you understand that you will be reading the latest Scrubs-related spoilers and speculations …some of which are pretty reliable and others may be designed to incite panic/false hope in a fanbase. Enter at your own risk!!

Special thanks to the Scrubbies relaying this information…here are the Spoilers and Speculations for the day:

Expected GH Scrubs airdates (breakdowns from Lisa)
week of 4/20 - M, T, W, Th, F (spoiler pics)
Monday, 4/20 - Elizabeth, Matt and Epiphany worry that Robin and Patrick’s personal problems will get in the way when they’re assigned to perform an emergency surgery and their worst fears are confirmed when the patient falls into distress.
Tuesday, 4/21 – Patrick and Robin work in tandem to save their patient and emerge from the crisis closer than they’ve been in a long time. Back at home, however, Robin and Patrick’s happiness is short lived when Robin can’t bring herself to soothe a fussy Emma.
Wednesday, 4/22 – After bailing on her therapy session, Robin runs into Alexis, who gives her sound advice about trying to juggle a career with being a mother. Already having spoken to Dr. Brown, Patrick is heartsick when Robin lies and says she kept her therapy appointment as planned.
Thursday, 4/23 – Patrick offers to attend a therapy session with Robin and they walk away from it in a slightly better place.
Friday, 4/24 – Robin’s denial about her condition leads to tragedy.
week of 4/27 - M, T, W, Th
Monday, April 27 – A potential tragedy is averted when Patrick rescues Emma before she crashes down the stairs. After learning Robin has stopped taking her anti-depressants, Patrick takes drastic measures to get her the help she needs.
Tuesday, April 28 – Patrick, along with Maxie, Mac, Kelly, Elizabeth, Matt and Dr. Brown, stage an intervention with Robin. Robin viciously takes her anger out on Maxie but is later forced to accept the fact that she needs help. At Kelly’s urging, Robin agrees to leave to get in patient treatment.
Wednesday, April 29 – Patrick has his hands full taking care of Emma by himself. Matt arrives and tells Patrick he’s moving in to help with the baby but soon finds himself overwhelmed as well. Patrick misses Robin.
Thursday, April 30 - Patrick and Ingrid find themselves well matched when Jax asks Patrick to consult on Michael’s case. Maxie comes up with a plan to try and get Spinelli back.

ABC Hotsheet:
Patrick and Robin bond over couples therapy and emergency surgery. All is temporarily well for the Scorpio-Drakes ... until a heart-stopping accident at the end of the week

:: Pretty Reliable::
AIG none at the time of this post

:: Could be Complete Fiction - Don't Believe Most of it::
Daytime Dish/Backup Board (source and source):
Patrick makes a startling confession during his therapy session with Robin.

Liz is around helping Patrick with Emma

Scrubs are still together but it's very rocky. It's Guza's way of keeping Scrubs front burner, hit with angst. Scrubs are safe but they will continue to be hit with lots of angst.

The GH studios are in a tizzy. They don't know what to do to stop the bleeding. Changes are being made fast & furious.
Plans of having Liz to be a somewhat "3rd party" in Scrubs were scrapped after a horrible reception.

I can tell you that come summer Scrubs will be happy and on the backburner once again.

Anything on Patrick's revelation during therapy?
He's not sure he believes that Robin has PPD. Sometimes he thinks she just wants out.

Patrick, Matt and Maxie come to the realization that Robin did not have it easy while she was staying home with EMma 24/7.
Robin returns, she and Patrick begin to pick up the pieces of their marriage.
Things go rather well in that department for most of June. There big angsty issues surround the fact that Robin think Matt/Maxie are a good couple and Patrick thinks his little brother can do better.(Yeah, OUCH!)
There is also a hospital issue about to rear its ugly head. No toxic balls this time.
At the end of June, Patrick and Robin are back to themselves but soon thereafter one of them learns a family secret and that promises chaos for the next three months or so.

will Ethan play a role w/Scrubs too?
Ethan will be just about everywhere this summer.
Is the family secret Robin's? About Ethan?
I can't say what the family secret is and I'm not sure how to say this without giving away too much.
There's a body outline in chalk in the immediate future(mid June) of a prominent PC citizen. The wrong person gets implicated in the crime and, because of a family secret, one of the Scorpio-Drakes gets involved which causes considerably angst for the other Scorpio-Drake.I know that's clear as mud but its the best I can do.
Will Liz be involved alot w/ Patrick caring for Emma when Robin is gone?
I don't think there are any scenes indicating that. There may be some hospital references that go like "thanks for helping with Emma yesterda" or something like that but for about three weeks Maxie, Matt and Patrick will share scenes with Emma who, in spite of the fact that Robin didn't seem to pay much attention to her, seems to miss mommy. And acts out on it in a big time way. The scenes are all great but watch for the Matt/Emma scenes especially. Jason Cook has a real flair for doing comedy and for anyone who has ever seen the old Dustin Hoffman movie, Tootsie, think about the babysitting scene and you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about.
You really believe that fanfic?
I've tried not to get too specific because things are changed on a regular basis and specifics can't be counted on. But the big story for the summer is a murder mystery which brings in the Scrubs/Matt family; the Ethan/Luke story; Jason/Sam and Spin and the Sonny/Claudia/Rick/Johnny story. That's happening. You can believe or not but that's the truth.
I'm gone now.

Piz isnt gone for good.
What does Patrick say to Robin at the therapy session?
He doesnt believe her about Brad.

There is no Piz. There never was a plan for Piz. Scrubs are solid and will be front burner all Summer. I'm done talking about this.

For those who think Scrubs are over let me remind you that TPTB are trying to get them to re up NOW and now wait to resign at the end of 2009. So have fun trying to rile scrubbies there is no end of scrubs in the future. HAND

I am glad to hear scrubs are going to be happy again.I wish the writers(who if i am not mistaken it is their jobs to create stories)could come up with story for scrubs.Just because they got married that means their over they can't be happy.I have always wondered why the writers think nobody wants to see happy couples on their shows(thats part of the reason we watch).I guess guza thinks remaking the GODFATHER on a daytime show is more important than dare i say it a show about a hospital.I mean the show is called GENERAL HOSPITAL not the sonny and jason hour!!!

I totally agree with the comments here and Tristan's point of view.
GH should monitor and listen to viewers opinion and input.They should be looking at viewers over 50 years old and had been watching the show for 20-30 years and not the 18-49 age group that they are so focused on.
Viewers like me tuned out because of too much violence,degrading all the women in the show and cruelty to children.
Why would the writers assume that viewers do not like to see happy couples? Was there a survey done to have this conclusion?
As I said before there is too much uncertainty in the world that I would prefer to watch love in the afternoon with Scrubs and stories about doctors/medical team saving lives than the mob storyline with Sonny/Jason and Claudia.
JT and Kimberly are amazing actors with great chemistry and should be utilized to the fullest to improve the show's ratings.

This PPD story is driving me insane and I just cannot wait for this painful story to end.
I think Matt is the best part of this story and should be actively involve in the Drake household not the perfect mother/friend.
I hope that Robin will be back to celebrate Mother's Day with Emma and Patrick,able to bond with her child,start the healing process with her husband and finally going to be a happy family.
I wish Gh and writers will listen to their viewers comments.Viewers are your only chance to improve your ratings.

I so agree. I am so tired of this PPD storyline. Writers need to listen and read what the FAN/Viewers are saying. We want the Scrubs Happy/Loving Family with Robin Bonding with Emma on Mother's Day and Patrick relaxing and enjoying his wife and kid. IT IS TIME. The Scrubs can always have some type of Drama in their Lives. They have been doing this since Patrick appeared on GH.

If you Writers can't see it, Jason and Kimberly have an On-Screen Chemistry/Bond that you must not break if you want FANS/Viewers to continue to wacth GH.

I am glad that maybe this story is finally reaching its end and that the end is good news for the scrubs pair.
I am not sure that the people in charge at ABC daytime don't, in fact, read some of these posts and comments made at other sites. I know it feels like they just haven't listened to us but, I have noticed a lot of similarities in the dialogue and the statements posted on-line.For example,we all screamed on-line about Robin's hyprocity, etc and then Robin is saying she is being a hypocrite. Now maybe it is just a coincidence but there have been too many times lately that the conversations on screen sound like ours on-line.(I can't help but wonder if these are changed scenes/dialogue.)
I guess that means as much as they deny it THEY DO read these sites so we just need to keep making our thoughts known.
The best advice is we can't give up!!
Jason and Kimberly are just too good together and those in charge have to realize this!!
