I know that Scrubs are safe as can be. Their angst will come from the hospital.

The show views the ratings as a "fact of the genre" as all soap opera's ratings continue to decrease year after year. The intent is to try to capitalize on the younger viewers which ABC has been successful at and bring on younger characters to supplement those listed above. That is the reason Drew Garrett and Nathan Parsons were hired on. And you will certainly see more characters brought on that they feel will attract this younger audience. Proportionately, ABC's demos are considered in better shape than the shows on CBS.
How does effect Robin and Patrick? NS3? A break up? Sold as a pairing? thanks
I don't have information on storyline direction. As I stated prior, there are certain core characters this show intends to build story around. Carly, Jason, Claudia, Sonny and Patrick, Robin, and Luke to a lessor degree. I cannot tell you who is breaking up or staying together only that these are considered by the execs at the present time to be the core of the show.

I want to clarify one thing. Maybe rather than using the term "core" characters I should use the term "anchors". Carly, Claudia, Sonny, and Jason are considered anchorss. Robin and Patrick are considered anchors as is Luke. That does not mean that they will be the focus of ever storyline it means that they are viewed as the anchors for their respective areas of the show. The Mob Element, The Hospital, and everything not tied to those 2 areas.
So you are saying that characters who are directly tied and needed for storylines with these anchors have more of a shot at sticking around for storyline purposes. For example, lulu, ethan, lucky, tracy are tied to Luke. Whereas a character like Monica or Edward is tied to really none of the anchor characters storyline wise?
First to answer your question yes. And for those who are Quartermaine fans, in the short term you have nothing to worry about. The showrealized the strategic mistake it made in 2007 with the Quartermaines and isn't willing to risk at this point ridding the show of anymore. That could change in 6 months to a year. But for now they are secure.

Also let's get the events in order.
The Mayor's mistress dies
Matt feels guilty, it's compounded when the family wants to file a lawsuit
Diane lets Alexis in on the complaint
Alexis starts to look into it, knows something is fishy, the Mayor interjects and tells Alexis to back off.
Alexis basically tells him to go to hell, then he blackmails her and says if he goes down, he's bringing Alexis down with him by outing the affair
Alexis almost calls his bluff, but reconciders after learning what Kristina has been up to as of late and has just been discussing that Kristina needs some stabilty
Alexis attempts to walk a fine line between covering for the Mayor and doing what is right
Kristina learns of Alexis's secret, she's enraged and publicly outs it

Love the Scrubs. Keep their on-going and a happy couple with some angst. Love it when they have some angst, but still together.
