In real life, Parry Shen is far from the blackmailing sleaze he portrays on General Hospital. He's a hard-working actor, husband, and father.
It's a good read.

Sabrina insists that Patrick go to his wife and tries to return her rings. Patrick confesses that he still loves her. She replies, "But you can't have us both."
For those who think Sabrina is really asking him to choose (which I thought just from what I've read), she's just stating a fact at this point. I think she knows that he wants to be with Robin, and that it's the right thing. If Patrick keeps waffling, that could change, but who knows?
Robin refuses to go home with her family, so she and Emma go to Anna's for the night. It's understandable that both Patrick and Robin need to get used to the fact that she's home. But again, as I complained in yesterday's blog, this was not a human response. She didn't know that both she and Emma would go to Anna's, so she was planning to spend another night without her child? She could have slept in Emma's room.
Watching this show with my sister, who is home for the week, has been hilarious. It reminds me of the time my other sister was home and wondered why Robin put her baby in a tree -- here's that blog. She wondered what would possess Sabrina to walk down to the docks (where she sees Carlos) in her wedding dress. I said, "That's an old scene. People do it all the time. Kate went to work in her bloody wedding gown." Any fan accepts this behavior.
To continue, Robin and Patrick aren't going to get used to one another again unless they start spending some time together. I can understand, given what Patrick has been through, that this may not have been a night of romance, but doesn't she at least want to be back in her own home?
Okay, apparently Jerry escaped in a boat, but I hope he was in traction and a doctor was on it. He had to be a mess after that fall.
He doesn't. When Sam tells him off, she mentions Julian, and he doesn't know who she's talking about. She makes it clear she's not interested in any father-daughter relationship.
Sonny thinks he may know Carlos -- at least the name is familiar.
Sonny orders Shawn to get Intel on Carlos.
Sabrina is missing.
Anna believes that Patrick and Robin will be together again.
Maxie seems to be gone.
Duke Lavery asks Anna a big question today, "What happened to Faison?" We still haven't heard the words, "He's dead." Duke also finds out that Derek is Julian and wants to kill him.
Luke and Jerry fall over a balcony during a fight. Neither die. Julian Jerome is going to help Jerry, who must be pretty badly hurt. To the remark "Jerry must be dead," Luke replies, "We're talking about Jerry Jacks." Amen.
Sonny is ready to take out Julian.
Carly tells Bobbie about Julian Jerome.
Emma wonders if Robin will be returning to heaven in the near future.
Robin admits that she doesn't know what's happening from here.
Patrick tells Sabrina that he still loves her.
I loved the show today, don't get me wrong, but I want to vent about something.
In line with what I've been doing lately, I'll use a line from an old film, The Bishop's Wife. The angel (Cary Grant) says that everything would be better "if people could only learn to behave like human beings."
I felt today's episode of GH highlighted that, which is a major problem with soap operas in general. For the sake of drama, sometimes human emotions fly out the window.
I know that most of us have never seen anyone come back from the dead, but after the initial shock, come on.
The first thing Felix should have done was get poor, devastated Sabrina out of there. Something awful happens that hurts a loved one - don't you think of them immediately? We could still have seen a strong reaction from Sabrina. But you're going to let your best friend stand up there feeling sad, shocked, and humiliated?
Next. What benefit did we derive from a church full of guests watching the reunion of Robin and Patrick? Elizabeth or Lucy should have escorted them out a side door, and Mac and Felicia could have waited in the minister's office. Was everyone waiting for the reception to begin or what?
In the shock, Robin and Patrick probably couldn't move, so everyone would have to work around them.
I know how quickly the writers have to work but sometimes things just don't make sense to me. I was thrilled to see Robin and Patrick back together, but I kept thinking of Sabrina standing at the front of the church, completely ignored.
