Noah plays matchmaker this week on GH when he brings Patrick and Robin together at
"He's pulling for them," sets up Jason Thompson, who
plays Noah's son. "He can see there's an attraction and a
mutual respect there. As much as they try to deny it and push it
away, it's there. With everything Noah has gone through with
pushing away intimacy in his relationships, he doesn't want
Patrick to make the same mistake."
Unfortunately, Patrick balks when he realizes Noah has arranged
lunch for him and Robin at MC. "He basically says to his
dad, 'I'm not going to go,' previews Thompson. When Robin gets
wind of what's going on, "She says, 'Whatever, he's not
going to show up.' But she shows up anyway, ans Patrick isn't
theree. She says, 'You know what? I'm making a big mistake.'
Then she turns around to leave and he appears."

We Clapped: GH's
Robin depends on rules to stay alive, and when she started
shedding those strictures, her portrayer, Kimberly McCullough,
really breathed life into the character. McCullough showed the
timid Robin, cowed by the prospect of cutting loose and openly
pursuing Patrick, but also the hopeful Robin, the one who longed
for a relationship. But when the thoughtful Robin remembered and
weighed the dangers and balked, Patrick called her on it.
McCullough gave her the strength to blurt, "I'm not afraid
to live!" The actress made fans believe that declaration,
even as Robin recoiled from the playboy surgeon. For showing
fans a cautious Robin taking a tentative first flight, Kimberly
McCullough earned Applause, Applause kudos for Issue 21. (SOW
Why We Clapped:
Soap newcomer Jason Thompson was handed the demanding task of giving
depth to a seemingly superficial character, General Hospital's
womanizing Dr. Patrick Drake, and he filled the prescription. The
writers provided the storyline (a father on the brink of death) and
Thompson supplied the heart. He took Patrick from icy and aloof to
angry and threatening, and then to emotional and vulnerable. As
Patrick tried to goad his father into fighting to live, Thompson
showed how his character struggled with his emotions. Patrick now
has layers, which will make watching Robin peel them back so much
more interesting. Our diagnosis: Thompson deserves Applause,
Applause honors for Issue 17. (SOD Online, 4/14/06)
Outstanding performer for the week of March 27, Jason Thompson: Since arriving in Port Charles, Patrick Drake has been the model of the
detached - not to mention cocky - surgeon. But as that cool exterior finally
started to dissolve, General Hospital's Jason Thompson delivered a stand-out
performance that was, well, just what the doctor ordered.
It began subtly enough when Patrick confronted Noah about his decision to
refuse a life-saving transplant. Thompson's voice dripped with contempt as
Patrick coldly rattled off all of the complications Noah would face.
"You'll start bleeding from your nose, then your lungs," he listed.
"If you're determined to die a slow, agonizing death, I'm not going to stop
you," he added with a sneer.
But Patrick's icy demeanor was threatened when Robin warned that he would be
haunted by Noah's death. Thompson later allowed Patrick's anger to bubble to the
surface as he slapped a syringe, loaded with enough drug to let Noah take his
own life, by his father's bedside. "You'll go out the way you've chosen to
live: as a coward!" he railed.
Conflicted Patrick's sarcastic veneer showed more cracks when he returned to
bargain with his unconscious father. "I am not going to let you kill
yourself," Patrick vowed. Thompson - eyes glistening - hunched by the
bedside like a man defeated. His voice was incredulous and weak as Patrick ed
wondered: "You gave me life twice and now you expect me to not try and save
Patrick wasn't going to just give up. "I've never lost a patient, not
once," Thompson stated evenly as Patrick gathered himself. "You're not
going to be my first. I am not going to let you haunt me."
Bad medicine? Noah would say so. Good performance? No question. (SOW
From Editorial Assistant Mala Bhattacharjee: GH's
hotshot doc, Patrick Drake, made a naked debut in the OR last
fall, but these days, former model Jason Thompson is definitely
dressed for success. No, I don't mean the sweater vests he's been
borrowing from my dad's closet — I mean his powerhouse
performances across from Rick Springfield's Noah and Kimberly
McCullough's Robin. Thompson, who bears a striking resemblance to
his on-screen pop, is a pleasure to watch...even when it's
painful! (Soap Opera Weekly Online, 4/28/06)
Okay, so I'm a huge
Scrubs fan and just love Patrick. I know he's not a Scorpio
but some of his lines are just hilarious and so off-the-cuff that
he reminds me of Robert.
