Tuesday, May 23, 2006

At Metro Court, as Robin and Patrick were leaving, Carly made a comment about Robin, as Lulu and Nikolas looked on. Robin was visibly upset and commented as to how Carly manipulated people and that she should just let the truth come out. At that time Patrick led Robin out, and both Nikolas and Lulu told Carly that she was wrong to go off on Robin. While Jax and Carly sat down for dinner, Jax thought about what Robin had to say, and let Carly know that he felt that Robin knew that John was not his child. Carly commented that if Robin had known that she would have already told people, and that Jax was just being paranoid. Carly also questioned whether it was smart to keep Nikolas out of John's life. Jax said that with Helena free, it was even more imperative to protect John, and that he was not going to live his life in fear of if the secret ever got out.

On the pier, Liz was speaking with Jason, venting her frusta rations of the argument she had with Lucky. She told Jason, that part of Lucky's frustration was that Jason was the one that saved her from Manny, and not her husband. Also, that Lucky had been suspicious of hers and Patrick friendship, and thought that they were having an affair, when all that she had done was get a second job to help cover some of the medical bills that had piled up. Jason let Liz know that he had left Sam, because his lifestyle was now too dangerous. Liz tried to get him to understand that while his life was dangerous, that shutting everyone out, would also leave him alone. Jason said that it was a choice he had to make.

In Patrick's room, Robin was still upset about the confrontation she had with Carly. Patrick recognized her frustration, and listened to her dilemma. She told him that she knew of a secret, and that while letting people know of her secret it would hurt Carly, it would also hurt someone else that she cared for. Also, if she kept the secret to herself, it would hurt another. At that point Patrick suggested that she stay out of it, and let it play out between those involved. Robin and Patrick started kissing on the sofa, and Robin asked if he was comfortable with her being HIV +. As he carried her to the bed, Patrick reassured her that it was not an issue, and they continued kissing. At that point Patrick's pager goes off, and when he called the hospital, it was Epiphany letting him know that Sam's nose was bleeding heavily, which effectively ended Robin and his night.

At the hospital, Alexis was trying to calm Sam down as Sam voiced her disbelief that Jason had left her. Sam said that she was supposed to get married to Jason, and could not believe that he would leave her. Alexis tried to explain that Jason was doing this because he loved her, and because his life was too dangerous. In trying to keep Sam calm, her nose started to bleed. When Patrick came by, he told Alexis that the nose bleed was because she was agitated, and whatever was the cause of the stress should be eliminated. As Jason and Liz walked in, Jason overheard Sam's condition, and was visibly upset. He went to Sam's room, but unwilling to go inside.

At the prom, Dillon caught Georgie and Diego in a kiss, and punched Diego. This started a fight that Lucas and Guy had to break up. Dillon and Georgie fought in front of everyone, where Dillon could not believe that Georgie had been kissing someone when she was married, and that it was the Diego, the person she had wrote to while he was in prison. Georgie voiced how upset she was that Dillon had gone out of the country without calling her or writing to her, especially when he knew how important the prom was to her. At that point Georgie went back to Diego, and they started dancing. As they were dancing, Lulu and Nikolas walked in. As Lulu and Nikolas were dancing, Dillon asked to cut in, and they proceeded to dance together. Georgie, seeing them dance, became upset and left the prom with Diego. Outside of Kelly's, Georgie and Diego were talking, at which time, she admitted that her and Dillon had gotten married too early. At the prom, Lulu and Dillon were talking, and Dillon grudgingly admitted that he and Georgie were too young to be married.

Helena was on the phone with someone and commented how she was back in Port Charles and glad to be near her darling Nikolas. She also mentioned that he didn't know that she was in Port Charles, nor did anyone else.

At the pier, Nikolas ran into Robin. He told her that Jax was unwilling to let him spend time with John. As Robin commented that it was unfair, Nikolas told her that Jax had a legal right to do this, and that he was doing it to protect the baby from Helena. Robin said that Nikolas could protect John from his grandmother, to which Nikolas agreed. However, he also commented that if John had been his child, he is unsure if he would have allowed Jax to visit with him because of the tension between the two of them. Robin commented how Nikolas had just started to get to know John, and that it didn't seem right. He agreed, and said that he missed the baby already.

Edward intervenes and informs Luke that he hired Robert to help him get Luke out of the house. He also tells Luke that he invited Robert to move in to the mansion. Luke can't believe this is happening and tries to warn Edward that Robert will try to lay claim to everything in the mansion if he doesn't get rid of him.

Georgie tells him that she isn't insecure about Lulu and that she can't compete with the crazy things that Luke pulls Dillon into doing. Dillon brings up Diego and how upset he was to find her dancing with him at the prom and letting Diego kiss her. He tells her he wishes he could have taken her to the prom. Georgie insists she did that only because she was upset when he took off and didn't contact her. Dillon gets even more jealous about Diego.

Robin talks to Nikolas some more until she finds Patrick at another table watching them. Nikolas notices who is there and realizes he is stopping her from going to see Patrick. He tells her he is leaving them to talk. Robin approaches Patrick and the two of them go back to his hotel room. Robin and Patrick decide to make love and make sure their beepers are not going to go off. They start kissing on the bed when Robin stops them and sits up. She tells Patrick that she just realized something, her mother was right. Patrick asks her why she is bringing her mother into this. Robin tells him that her mother told her that Patrick is just like her father. Robin wonders if she is attracted to him because he is like her father and that disturbs her. She explains to him that he and Robert are both conceited jerks and that they think they are God's gift to women. Patrick doesn't like the idea that she is comparing him to Robert just as they are going to make love. Robin apologizes for saying this to break the mood.

She isn't so sure Lucky will accept this generosity from Jason but will accept it because of her son. She goes back to the hospital and runs into Emily who is on her way to see Jason herself.

Helena approaches John, just as Carly and Jax turn back towards the baby. Jax demands that Helena keep her distance.

Robert bangs on Patrick's door telling him that he wishes to know his intentions with his daughter. Robin answers the door and asks him what he is doing here. Robert informs Robin that he wishes to be the father that Robin has always wanted, so he is there to see what exactly Patrick has in mind concerning her. Patrick agrees to answer any question that Robert may have.

Believing that her father has ulterior motives, Robin tries to explain to Patrick that her father is trying to trap him. She believes that Robert is trying to find out just how many similarities they have.

Robin informs him that after dealing with the illness for 10 years, she knows what she is doing. Robert offers his concern that being cautious for too many years may have taught Robin to become overprotective of her heart. Robin tells her father that she isn't afraid of love. She has loved both Stone and Jason and that she just isn't sure if she will ever find love again. Robert asks her why she can't find love with Patrick. Robin tells him that this is not the type of relationship that two have, and that it's merely sexual. At that moment, Patrick re-enters the room.
