As Doctor Patrick Drake was handed the wedding rings of his wife Robin, the firefighter explained that her body was burned beyond recognition. In the real world, there is no coming back from this, but for the ABC soap "General Hospital," things are looking up for Robin's return. In the past week it may be depressing seeing Patrick, Mac and other family members grieve her loss, but there are five reasons Robin may still be alive.
Although firemen confirmed her death, Robin's body was never shown on screen. All viewers got was a glimpse of a yellow tarp, who knows who's skeleton was trapped underneath.
In the soap world, if you do not see the dead body, then there is never a 100% certainty that they are dead. Plus, Patrick and Robin's mother Anna are discouraging anyone from viewing the body.
Patrick's True Love
Patrick and Robin have been together for nearly six years. The pair, known as "Scrubs" have had a building romance that led to marriage and a child. With Robin off "General Hospital," there are really no other pairings that will be as good for Patrick as his one with Robin.
They are meant to be together and he will not leave the show unless Robin is by his side.
Faison is the ruthless villain that tortured the lives of Robin's parents Anna and Robert. Just like any villain on "General Hospital," he is due for a return. Faison was known for faking the deaths of characters and he could have easily done the same to Robin.
Whether he meant to get Robin, Patrick or both is another story, but Robin is the one that is "dead" now and in the future Faison could be revealed as the evil culprit. This would explain the return of Anna and Robert, not just to mourn their loss, but to revisit a classic GH story.
Kim McCollough has been on "General Hospital" since she was just a little girl and viewers have watched her grow up through multiple storylines. Killing off her character without a chance to return is almost unheard of in the soap world.
For a character to be on this long, fans would want a happy ending and Robin miraculously returning from the dead would be the perfect way to do it.
Stories never end on "General Hospital," with more mystery and twists added each time. Just for story purposes alone, Robin's death could be a huge hoax. She was planning to run away a few weeks earlier, so what if she staged her own death, saved Jason's life at the same time and dealt with her HIV issues away from family and friends.
No matter what happens, Robin will grace the "General Hospital" screen in the future.
"General Hospital" airs weekdays on ABC at 3 pm ET.
