Reunited! Well at least
on Night Shift 2, anyway. The two parter season finale is a
flashback to the 1980s as the Scorpios are reunited with
longtime pals Sean Donely and his bubbly wife, Tiffany Hill. It
also includes revisiting Robert Scorpio's cool townhouse. Wonder
if the secret door and secret office are still there? More
details can be found on the Night
Shift webpage. Tv Guide Online also has a great
interview up with John
Reilly & Sharon Wyatt on their appearance on Night
Soapnet aired three classic Robin
episodes today in a mini-marathon called "Robin
Unwrapped," which centers on her three loves. The episodes
were Stone's death (1995), skinny dipping in the Q pond with
Jason (1996), and exchanging I Love Yous with Patrick (2006).
Kimberly McCullough hosted the event and read real life love
letters sent in by viewers. Wish the Stone episode had been a
more romantic one though. It was so sad compared to the other

GH's Robin to Patrick:
"I'm Pregnant." As Robin struggles with the
news that she's pregnant with Patrick's baby, an argument erupts
between the estranged couple. "I know, surprise,
right?" chuckles Kimberly McCullough (Robin). "She
wanted to get pregnant, but she wanted it to be her way [through
a sperm bank] and she got pregnant accidentally. She's happy
about it, but not about the circumstances of how it actually
How it happened was due to a condom
malfunction during their spontaneous night of passion on
Christmas Eve. "It wasn't planned at all," McCullough
elaborates. "She doesn't want him to think that she
manipulated him into it. It was, in fact, an accident. It wasn't
premeditated sex [laughs]."
During their spat, Patrick accuses
Robin of being obsessed with having a baby and she, in turn,
blurts out that she's pregnant. "I can't really say he's in
shock because he knew she was trying," notes Jason Thompson
on Patrick's reaction to the news. "But deep down, he
doesn't really want it to happen. He still wants to be with her,
but that's a deal-breaker for him. His inner reaction is, 'Wow.
That's it. It's over' I think he had a little bit of hope left,
but when he found out she actually had gone through with it,
game, set, match."
Knowing that Patrick is adamant about
not having children, Robin isn't totally forthcoming.
"She's not telling him he's the father," McCullough
reveals. "She's telling him she's pregnant. He doesn't want
to be a father and, in her mind, she's delaying the inevitable,
which is her being rejected and the chid being rejected. She's
protecting herself against hearing, 'I still don't want it, even
though I'm going to have a child with you.' "
Would Patrick change his mind if he
learned the truth? "I personally think there's hope,"
nods Thompson. "For him, it's a fear thing. As a young boy,
his father wasn't around. He knows what it's like to grow up
with a single parent, basically. Patrick's very dedicated to his
work and fears his kid would go through the same thing that he
did. That's a legitimate concern."
Adds McCullough, "There's
absolutely a part of her that hopes Patrick would change his
mind, but there's been no evidence up to this point that that's
an actual possibility. There is the fact that she knows him and
trust him and therefore maybe it is better to have a child with
someone that you know rather than an anonymous donor. Hopefully,
the kid will be tall [laughs]!"
Back? Though GH's Anna took her
bow after Eli's big concert, head writer Bob Guza assure that
Finola Hughes won't be gone for long. "We love Anna. She'll
have another arc that's going to directly affect her character.
We're going to show you a third element of Anna Devane, beyond
super-spy and groupie, that I promise you have never, ever
anticipated," winks Guza, who can't give a precise time
frame just yet. "With Finola it's simply a question of
working out our schedule with hers. We want her as often as we
can have her.
Tristan Rogers' Robert resurfacing, "That a possibility,
too. It's the same deal - we are trying to shuffle all of the
schedules and it gets tricky with so many people. I wouldn't
rule out the possibility of Robert showing up - or others from
the not-so-distant past," teases the scribe. (SOW 9/11/07)
Up! Smart Set: Is there anything more vexing thatn one
of those clichéd soap misunderstanding that pries a couple
apart? It looked like that would happen to Patrick and Robin,
who'd finally gotten past their differences long enough to share
some lovey-dovey scenes. Ditto for Nikolas and Emily, who were
nearing reconciliation. But then Mr. Craig, a.k.a. Jerry Jacks,
fouled things up by forcing Nik and Robin to pretend they were
refreshing twist, neither Patrick nor Em fully bought the ruse.
Patrick made every effort to find out what was up with Robin.
And rather than having him fall into the arms of another woman,
he made a half-hearted attempt at wooing Kelly, who immediately
saw throught it and straightened him out. Fans didsn't have to
wait long for Patrick to reclaim Ms. Scorpio in private, while
pubicly going along with the scheme. Emily refused to give up on
Nikolas, who eventually caved, and she vowed to stand by him.
to GH for taking the unpredictable route of showing characters
who are not easily duped, and romances that are stronger than
lies. (SOD 5/29/07)

hearing Kimberly (McCullough, Robin) talk about Tristan Rogers
and Finola Hughes, it would be great to have them come back.
They brought such a great dynamic to the show, and she has so
many great stories about them. It would be coold if they
returned." - Jason Thompson on which former character on
his show he would most like to see return (SOW 4/10/07)
Decision: The one question Tristan Rogers is
consistently asked by fans is the one he can't answer: Holly or
Anna? His response? "It always comes down to those two
women," Rogers chuckles. "And you couldn't find two
women who are more diversely opposite than the two of them. The
actors [Emma Samms, ex-Holly, and Finola Hughes, ex-Anna] and
the characters. It's like saying, 'What do you like, apples or
oranges?' Well, I like them both at different times during the
day. This debate has raged back and forth across the web sites
for quite a while and I've tended to stay out of it for obvious
reasons. I don't want to go there. They both have their own
dynamic and let's leave it at that." (SOD 1/30/07)
