GH Rundown for June 8 – 12!

Is Patrick the most perfect man on soaps ever? Good lord, I loved him this week. He was so sweet to Robin and proved how far he has come from that cad we first met to the devoted husband and father he is now. Since he didn’t just change over night, and we witnessed his evolution, it’s believable and endearing. It’s so nice to see at least one happy couple on a soap right now.

I also love that they’ve catapulted Patrick and Robin into the story with the mayor because as we all know, a happy couple is usually a boring couple, but instead of throwing a wrench in their relationship, from all indications, the Drakes will remain happy, but still have something interesting to do.

From one happy couple to a couple who acts like they were never together: Wouldn’t it be nice if they acknowledged that Jason and Elizabeth have a past? They loved (love?) each other and have a son, but there are no lingering looks, no awkward passings at the hospital, or angsty run-ins with Jake at Kelly’s. After Michael lashed out at her, Jason didn’t even check to see if Elizabeth was okay! Getting little nods every now and then enriches the characters, keeps their histories in tact and makes the viewers happy.
