G.H. Commentary by
Patrick Drake has issues
The dark Dr. Hottie, Patrick Drake, is so far gone that he doesn’t even
realize he is just fighting against it in vein. After the funeral Patrick
and Robin were discussing the loss of Justice. Robin told Patrick that she
was happy he could be there for her and he seemed happy to be a form of
support in her life until things turned ugly which at some point they
usually do with him and Robin. Noah Drake saw Patrick and Robins
“relationship” as a good way to bridge the gap between him and his son. He
approached Patrick to tell him how happy he was that Robin was in Patrick’s
like. He went on to say how good she was for him and, heaven for bid, how
happy Patrick seemed lately. Noah didn’t get the response he was hoping for.
Patrick was none to pleased with his father’s comments and sent him
It is a shame that Patrick maintains the animosity between him and his
father. One would think that after he gave up his liver to save Noah’s life
that Patrick would be more receptive about having a relationship with his
farther especially since Noah is making an effort to change his life. Robin
was attempting to make just that point, but Patrick has such a narcissistic
affliction that he could not see past his own issues. The first one being
that he is falling for Robin and it has caught him completely off guard. He
doth protest way too much. How many times does he have to mention
no-commitment sex before it turns into an insult? Since she agreed to sleep
with him, Robin hasn’t once asked Patrick for a commitment and yet he is
acting like she has proposed marriage time and again.
Robin thought he was being insensitive to his father and Patrick
maintained that she was upset because he denied their relationship. In
reality, Patrick is the one upset because he just may want to be in a
relationship with Robin. He seemed even more pissed that his father of all
people should notice. Finally, hurt by Robin’s valid disappointment in him,
he goes off to Jakes where Carly is available. Now, who is using whom?
In the end, Patrick is using not only Carly but also his womanizing
reputation to shield himself from not just Robin, but from the love that’s
growing in his heart. One can only hope that when he comes to his senses,
getting love back won’t be as easy as getting Robin to sleep with him.
