Soap Dish: Robin’s Death On General Hospital

April 1, 2012

It is Soap Dish time again my friends and this week I am dishing all about the “death” of Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake on General Hospital, as well as the twist I knew was coming. Oh yes there is oh so much to dish about on this topic so let’s get to it.


The past few weeks of General Hospital have been jam-packed full of some intense, drama filled and heartbreaking stories and that includes the death of Robin. It was not a very well kept secret that the doc was going to die, her portrayer Kimberly McCullough announced she was leaving the show that she literally grew up on. That being said the fallout of Robin’s death has been amazing. Everyone from Jason Thompson, to Finola Hughes to Maurice Benard were heartbreaking and made me cry every day. However it has also brought some great scenes, Patrick and Sonny at the funeral, Patrick and Noah awesome. Oh and let me not forget the scenes between Tony Geary and Tristen Rogers, which reminded me of all the stuff those two characters have been through. Yep the fallout from Robin’s death will have a lasting impact on everyone who knew and loved her, just look at how Maxie is dealing with it.

All of that being said after suffering and I mean that in a heartbreak sort of way, through Robin’s death I felt kind of betrayed to find out she was in fact alive. Now I admit I wasn’t at all surprised by the twist after all fans never saw her body and obviously the powers that be did that so that the door would be open for Kimberly to come back. However I would have much rather preferred to learn she was alive if McCullough ever did return. I felt learning now make me less invested in the fallout of her death; it is kind of like what is the point. I realize I am probably in the minority here but I would have rather just believed she was dead.

That is all I have for this week’s edition of Soap Dish be sure to check back next week to see what I am dishing about.
