2007 General Hospital Opinion Articles and Essays!

Commentary by Rachel

The Doctor and The Prince

Almost ten years ago, Nikolas Cassadine was crushing on Robin Scorpio. Nikolas was shot in the throat and suffered from Broca’s Aphasia. He shut everyone out of his life, except for Emily Quartermaine. When Emily couldn’t help him anymore, she asked Robin to assist Nikolas. This arrangement worked for the both of them. Robin was trying to forget about Jason, while a depressed Nikolas was trying to shut everyone he cared about out of his life.

The more time they spent together, the closer they got. Robin was no longer a stranger and Nikolas found a friend who complimented him. Also, Nikolas was able to speak again, which he praised Robin for. Their friendship could have blossomed into a romance, only the timing was not right. Despite the self-imposed distance, Robin still loved Jason.

Now, due to Craig’s threats, they have to make everyone believe that they are a couple. She’s in love with commitment phobic Patrick, who finally has committed to her and he’s in love with Emily (again), who just got over his past affair with Courtney. My only question is could Robin and Nikolas actually fall in love?

If you think about it, this is the typical soap set up, pretending to be in love to cover up a “secret” reason. This is how Emily and Nikolas first began, trying to convince Zander that they were in love to hide the fact that she had cancer. Jason convinced the world that Sam was carrying his child so that the truth wouldn’t be revealed.

Although Craig’s threats don’t entice the two, this pairing has potential. Robin wants security, loyalty and a family. Nikolas is a prince, who was brought up to be the perfect specimen of a man. He’s secure, loyal (to a fault) and is a single father. He’s not the jealous type and there is no immediate or constant danger that surrounds him.

Robin could be Nikolas’ ideal partner. She’s self-sufficient, extremely smart (she’s a doctor), caring, extremely loyal trusting (to a fault) and would make the perfect mother to his child. Her only concern would be her HIV status, which could cause some problems, such as, if they wanted to have kids.

Whether the “forced” Robin-Nikolas pairing works or not, I can’t wait to see their performance as exposed “secret” lovers. It’s unlike them both, this was never Robin’s style and Nikolas has learned from a past mistake (Courtney), to do it again. This will be entertaining if not anything else. Robin and Nikolas do have the chemistry to make it believable. All I can say is “bring it!” Also, I like Craig’s style.
