Useful information on Dr. Patrick Drake
* Reformed playboy.
Robin sought Patrick's help when his father, Noah Drake admitted he couldn't perform the surgery needed to save Jason's life. Patrick initially refused to do the surgery because of his estranged relationship with Noah, but with Carly, Sam and Robin all pleading, he agreed to it. The surgery was a success, but it just made him even more cocky.
Robin tried to get information from Noah about the strained relationship between he and his son, but she only got a cryptic remark about how easy it was to fall into a bottle when your patient dies. She later discovered it was his wife, and Patrick's mother about whom he spoke.
Patrick and Robin flirted with one another openly, yet denied a romantic attraction, and he even went so far as to express an interest in Carly to raise Robin's dander. Eventually, beneath Robin's balcony, with a boom-box and flowers, he professed his love for her.
Although in love, Patrick was in no hurry to get married and have kids. Robin, on the other hand, wanted to be a mother so she broke up with Patrick and decided to find a sperm donor.
Patrick dated Leyla during this time, but remained in love with Robin. Patrick was there to console Robin when Georgie was murdered and they had sex. However, the topic of kids remained an issue and they went their separate ways.
Robin later discovered she was pregnant and after much drama they reconciled and married. Patrick also met his new half-brother Matt Hunter while this played out.
After the birth of their daughter Emma, Robin suffered from postpartum depression. Patrick remained by her side and encouraged her to seek help.
Once they were back on track, Patrick's ex-girlfriend Dr. Lisa Niles came to town. After months of flirtation and Patrick's feelings of insecurity about Robin's past with Sonny and Stone, Patrick slept with Lisa. Robin left him when she found out, but they banded together for the sake of their daughter when Lisa developed a fatal attraction. Robin eventually took Patrick back, but Lisa continued to terrorize them. After Lisa held them hostage at the hospital, she stabbed herself with a syringe meant for Robin and lapsed into a coma.
The Drakes' next challenge came when Robin was named chief-of-staff at the hospital. She decided to spread the surgeries around more fairly, which Patrick took offense to. He tried to support her as his wife, but they continued to butt heads. Patrick and Matt also came to blows over a few conflicting opinions on surgeries.
Robin eventually turned over the reins of Chief of Staff back to Monica and Lisa briefly returned (after Anthony resurrected her) to wreck havoc. However, after a boat party held for Matt, Lisa was found dead floating in the water.
Robin then learned her drug protocol for her HIV wasn't working and feared the worst. She asked Jason to help her leave town and Elizabeth to take her place in Patrick and Emma's life. Patrick got wind of what she was doing and convinced her to stick around. She started a new protocol, which worked and all was right with the world again.
Jason began have dizzy spells and headaches. Robin began working on a treatment for him in the lab. Maxie stopped by to vent about Matt and accidentally turned on a gas source. In Robin's absence, Patrick got trapped in the lab with the fumes and Robin saved him. However, she had to run back in for Jason's medication. The fumes got too bad and the doors automatically locked behind her. Patrick was forced to watch as the lab exploded with Robin inside.
Presumed dead, Patrick refused Sam's pleas to still help Jason, considering (in his mind) he was responsible for Robin's death.
