MSN TV: What are you most looking forward to with this new hub?
Jason Thompson: I'm really excited and I think it's a great set and brings good energy into an old hospital. It's not as claustrophobic. The old hub was one of the only sets that didn't move, so this is something new and it's great. This one is bigger, we can play around more and cameras can follow us around and we don't have to stand around as much. I think it's just something new, even from the colors and the switch to HD. It's really some fresh air for the hospital.
What do you think it will mean to the viewers?
A great change. I think it's easy to get stagnant and along that same line for a while. This is a little bump in the road. I think it will be good.
You mentioned the move to HD, what do you think it means to the show?
I think it's going to be great, too. It's a great process and will look great and the crew is so well-trained and it will help put us over the top with the other soaps. I've always thought we have the best story lines and the best actors, and this will help raise the bar.
MSN TV: You mentioned the great story lines, but what else can you attribute to the longevity of "GH"?
Jason Thompson: I think it gets back to the fan base. They are dedicated. They believe in the characters and support us as actors and characters. Beyond that, it's a cast that really loves what we do and takes it seriously, and a crew that loves what they do and take it seriously. All of our writers and producers keep churning these out on a daily basis, which is very difficult to do. And the work that goes into one script, let alone 46 years of it, is quite phenomenal.
What's next for Dr. Drake and your story lines?
Lots going on. My wife is going through post-partum depression and she's going into therapy. We don't know for how long or how she is going to come out of it. There's a lot of changes. We didn't really have a honeymoon stage and we haven't had any of that yet. I think there's a lot of changes in the Drake household, along with the hospital, but personally I don't know how it's going to go. I know they'll drag it out a bit and take it as serious as possible. I'm sort of in the dark as well. (source)

Wednesday April 8:
Robin and Patrick grow even further apart.
Robin finds Patrick in the park with Liz and all three kids.
GH is not a happy set, and has been for a very long time. But, it doesn't help when the man in charge shows his favoritism pretty blatantly. Brian Frons planned a private party for GH launch into HD. Unfortunately he only invited certain cast members to the party which is being held at his house. When cast members found out their invitation must have "gotten lost in the mail" the moral level hit an all time low. Basically if you are not in favor with Brian Frons you should not expect much in the way of a story on GH.
Patrick and Liz grow closer
Jason and Robin establish an old bond
Liz continues to provide Patrick with moral support and help with Emma. No more Jason and Robin scenes. Robin will find herself very, lonely.
