Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake, MD (née Scorpio, formerly Soltini) is a fictional character from the ABC soap opera General Hospital and its prime time SOAPnet spin-off General Hospital: Night Shift, portrayed by Kimberly McCullough since 1985. The character came to mainstream attention when she was diagnosed as HIV-positive in the 1990s.
A seven-year-old McCullough debuted in August 1985 as the daughter of characters Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes). She left in 1996, reappearing several times for brief runs in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2004. McCullough returned in 2005 and is currently portraying the role, which she also reprised on both seasons (2007 and 2008) of the spin-off series General Hospital: Night Shift. She has won two Daytime Emmy Awards for the role, for Outstanding Juvenile Female in 1989 and Outstanding Younger Actress in 1996.
McCullough has also earned two Soap Opera Digest Awards (Outstanding Youth Actor/Actress in 1986 and Outstanding Child Actor in 1993) as well as a 1987 Young Artist Award. After playing the role since she was seven, McCullough decided to leave in late November 2011, and her last day on-screen was on March 27, 2012. On Febuary 21, 2012 Robin seemingly died in a explosion, but was later revealed to be alive and being held captive and drugged in an undisclosed location. On July 18, 2012, Kimberly McCullough announced she would be returning to the show on a recurring basis in late September, along with Kirsten Storms returning as Maxie. It was announced in August 2013 that McCullough had signed a contract with GH and returned September 30, 2013.
Seven-year-old Robin arrives in Port Charles as an infant who grew up thinking her mother, Anna Devane, was her aunt. Her father, Robert Scorpio, has no idea that he shares a daughter with Anna but soon selects three of his closest friends—Sean Donely, Frisco Jones and Dr. Buzz Stryker—to serve as Robin's godfathers when he and his wife Holly Sutton leave for Australia. Robin is asked to be BJ Jones' godsister while Tania is pregnant. Robert later returns to Port Charles to find Anna married to Duke Lavery. During her childhood, Robin's grandmother was killed and she faced tough times when her parents were supposedly murdered in an explosion. She is then adopted by her uncle Mac Scorpio who marries Felicia Jones. This marriage gave Robin two step-cousins, Maxie and Georgie Jones.
Robin met Michael 'Stone' Cates in 1993 and they did not get along. But they began dating in 1994 against her uncle Mac's wishes. Stone had been a street kid taken in and working for Sonny Corinthos. In 1995 Stone learned he was HIV+ and then had full blown AIDS due to not asking questions of girls he was with while on the streets. He became her first love, and she stands by him during his ordeal and gains many friends, and felt him with her long after he was gone. After Stone dies from AIDS and leaves her HIV-positive.
Robin then begins seeing Jason Morgan, who was becoming involved in the mob. She introduced him to Sonny Corinthos, soon his employer, and the three become great friends, helping Jason deal with his brain damage, as he was previously Jason Quartermaine. Robin celebrates her birthday with Jason on October 12, 1997. Robin left Port Charles to avoid the mob but returned in 1998 to help her friend Brenda Barrett from her recent break-up. During this period, Robin became friends with Nikolas Cassadine and the two bonded over their similar childhoods. Robin reconciled with Jason but their relationship began to deteriorate when Robin revealed to Jason's brother A.J. Quartermaine that he (and not Jason) was the father of Carly Roberts's son, Michael. Robin left town in 1999, moving to Paris. A few years later she reunited with her mother in Pine Valley.
Robin returned to Port Charles to save her friend, Jason Morgan's life when he had experienced seizures. It was during this time that she teams up with Patrick Drake to perform an operation that could determine his fate. Robin was grateful to Patrick when the surgery was a success and this hook-up leads down to them being a couple. Their team work came in handy when in a couple of months, Port Charles experiences a virus outbreak, which brings back her father, Robert Scorpio and the two reconcile.
Robin had then learned and revealed the paternity of John Michael Jacks, Nikolas Cassadine's son in which her best friend, Jasper Jacks was claiming to be the father of. This caused Carly Corinthos to vow vengeance against her. At the same time, Robin and Patrick admitted their love for one another and at long last became a true couple. Robin helped Luke Spencer reconnect with his traumatized wife, Laura Spencer, who had been incapable of communicating until Robin discovered a miracle drug. Robin and Patrick faced trying times when Patrick abandoned a date with Robin to go to a bar in Vegas.
Robin once again faced problems when she was held hostage and was shot in the lower abdomen but was saved when Emily Quartermaine agreed to operate on her with guidance from Patrick through telephone. Patrick and Robin, after the crisis, discovered that they both loved sitting at the pier. Patrick declared to Robin that he loved her and the two reconcile. After a few months of being together, Robin wanted to settle down and commit to each other with a wedding and children. Patrick had different plans which caused Robin to walk out on Patrick. Along with her recent break-up, Robin had to deal with her father's health due to the fact that he was diagnosed with colon cancer.
After the funeral of Georgie Jones, Robin's cousin, Robin is devastated and has a one-night-stand with Patrick. Robin later discovers that she is pregnant. But since she has been planning for some time to use a sperm donor and become a single mother, she does not let on that Patrick is the father, rationalizing her decision by saying that Patrick has been clear about not wanting children. But after discovering the truth, Carly Corinthos criticizes her. Insulted, Robin tells Patrick and the two bond. Robin's mother Anna Devane returns to town, learns of the pregnancy and asks Patrick to marry Robin. Although the two initially refuse, Patrick soon becomes marriage-minded and boldly proposes over the hospital speaker system, only to get shot down. Robin later agrees and they set a date in late October. However, the wedding gets cut short by Robin going into labor. Robin is initially having contractions that harm the baby, so she has to have an emergency C-section, and Robin and Patrick welcome a healthy baby girl. Robin names the baby Emma Grace Scorpio-Drake and, after a brief scare, the new parents are relieved to find out that the baby has not been infected by Robin's HIV.
Patrick and Robin wed right after Emma's first Christmas, but are soon at odds, as Robin is suffering from postpartum depression (PPD) and begins to act out. After months of refusing help from family and friends, Robin nearly dies when she either falls or jumps from the pier. Eventually she agrees to go away for treatment. Upon her return, she quickly bonds with her daughter.
Robin's hard-earned newlywed bliss is interrupted when Patrick and his brother, Matt Hunter, face a malpractice suit in the death of the mayor's mistress, Brianna Hughes. Playing detective, Robin aids Patrick in proving that Brianna was murdered by the mayor's wife and the charges are dropped against Patrick and Matt.
Robin hosts Thanksgiving dinner for the family at her new house, partaking in a plot with Kristina Corinthos-Davis and Molly Lansing-Davis to set up their mother, Alexis Davis, with Robin's uncle, Mac Scorpio. Robin tells a skeptical Sam McCall that the two guests of honor had very obvious chemistry at the "nonwedding" of Maxie Jones and Damian Spinelli. But Alexis and Mac realize something is afoot and tell the girls it is a waste of time. Matt also attends the dinner, unexpectedly bringing along Lisa Niles, an ex-girlfriend of Patrick's who is town. Maxie, nursing influenza, misses the family event, but shares turkey soup with Spinelli at her apartment.
Robin counsels Elizabeth Webber, who is having a secret affair with Nikolas Cassadine, but is engaged to Lucky Spencer, to be truthful about how she feels. Robin meets Patrick for karaoke night at Jake's. When she arrives, Lisa is already sitting with Patrick, so Robin stops at the bar and brings drinks over to the table for both of them, then orders a soda for herself. Lisa asks why she does not get a real drink and Patrick tells her Robin is on medication. When Lisa asks what type of medication, Robin ignores her. Alexis and Mac later show up together. Dr. Steven Webber, Elizabeth's brother, is hired as the new chief of staff and immediately butts heads with Patrick. Robin tries to mediate and help Steven get along with her husband. Lisa Niles, after initially losing a patient, is excited when she pulls through on an almost full reconstruction surgery. She takes another surgery right after when the surgeon at the time is not found. When Steven finds this out, he goes to stop her. When Patrick finds out, he blames Robin and they get into an argument, which Lisa seems happy about, but they quickly make up, which disappoints her.
On January 12, 2010, Robin and Emma leave to go see Anna in London. Robin leaves her patients in Patrick's care. When she comes back, she is impressed with how Patrick handled her patients. Robin and Patrick attend the christening of Josslyn Jacks, Jax and Carly Jacks' daughter. At the after-party, Robin gets a call from Sonny, asking her and Patrick to come to the hospital. She finds out there that Dominic Pirelli, who works for Sonny, is actually Dante Falconeri, Sonny's son with his old girlfriend, Olivia Falconeri. He was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound and Sonny asks Patrick and Robin to help on his case. Robin is shocked by this, but then Patrick admits that he knew this. Robin is furious with Patrick for not telling her, since Sonny is one of her good friends. Patrick tells her that this wasn't his secret to tell and he left it up to Olivia to tell Sonny. Robin still cannot forgive him.
Robin and Patrick start fighting about Sonny, as well as his role in the murder of his wife, Claudia. Robin defends Sonny, while Patrick says he's dangerous and must be put in prison. Robin eventually takes the stand at Sonny's trial as a witness, and Patrick comes to the court room, but does not approve of her choice to defend him. The issue of Robin's past is still between them, but both she and Patrick decide to work through it for the sake of their marriage.
Robin goes to Africa in late June 2010 to be a volunteer doctor. She ends up coming home early, wanting to be with her family. Later, Robin realizes Lisa was making a play for Patrick and becomes wary of her, but ultimately trusts that she and Patrick will stay together. Elizabeth has a son, Aiden, in July 2010, but he is soon kidnapped. During the subsequent hospital lockdown, Lisa starts acting hostile towards both Robin and Patrick. After the lockdown, she apologizes to Robin for the way she spoke to her. Later that day, her locker was vandalized, and the pictures in her locker had her face cut out of them. Robin and Patrick both suspected Lisa, who denied it. Later, Robin takes a trip to New York, and when she comes back, she can't find her HIV medication. Patrick realizes it was Lisa. On August 20, 2010, Robin and Patrick come home and find out that Lisa took Emma out for ice cream without their permission. She later comes back with Emma while Robin and Patrick are searching for them. After Lisa leaves, Patrick confesses to Robin that he slept with Lisa while she was in Africa. Robin is devastated and tells Patrick to leave.
After having a conversation with Maxie, Robin goes to pick up Patrick. When she gets there, though, Lisa jumps in front of her car, and gets hit. She starts making it look like Robin is the one who's insane. Robin and Patrick realize that Lisa is insane, and needs to be stopped. They decide to act like they're separated to draw Lisa out and catch her in the act. During this time, Robin and Emma move in with Mac so that they'll be safe from Lisa.
Lisa eventually figures out Patrick and Robin's scheme, and retaliates by mixing Robin's HIV medication with tranquilizers. Robin takes Emma out for ice cream, but she goes unconscious at the wheel and drives her car into a ditch. On September 24, 2010, Robin wakes up in a cabin with Lisa, and realizes she's been kidnapped. Lisa denies this, saying she found Robin, and makes it look like she's insane. Robin, though, realizes she's out of control and tries to escape. Patrick finds Emma and the abandoned car, and realizes Lisa has taken Robin. When she comes to, she is in a cabin with Lisa. She blames Lisa and demands to know where Emma is. Lisa claims she is innocent and tells Robin the reson Patrick slept with her was to get a break from his wife. When Lisa turns away from Robin, Robin pushes her down and runs out of the cabin. Lisa hears a scream and quietly says, "Oh, well. Have fun in the woods."
Later that night, Lisa returns to the hospital, and Patrick and Steve ask what she did with Robin. Lisa tells them she doesn't know what they are talking about and that she was at the movies. Mac shows up and takes Lisa down to the station to question her. She stonewalls him, claiming that she knows nothing. Upon returning to the hospital, she tells Patrick that the event at the station freaked her out. He tells her he understands and that Mac had no right to take her. Mac comes to the hospital and places Patrick under arrest. While in the interrogation room, he and Steve try to locate Robin. Lisa comes in and tells Patrick he can leave due to lack of evidence. Once Patrick and Steve locate Robin, Patrick goes to the woods and saves her. After they are out of the well, Lisa approaches them with a gun. Patrick tries to reason with her and she turns the gun on herself. Patrick rushes to her and attempts to take the gun from her. It goes off, but no one is injured. The cops arrive and Mac makes arrangements for Lisa to be taken to Shadybrook Sanitarium.
Around a week later, Lisa comes back to work at the hospital after being cleared from Shadybrook. She continues to lead everyone to believe Robin is the one mentally unstable, but Patrick won't believe her. Robin lashes out at Lisa after one of her patient's charts is changed. Lisa denies having anything to do with it, and Steve informs Robin that another doctor changed it and it was noted on the chart.
On Halloween, Robin, dressed as a witch, takes Emma to Kelly's. When she leaves, the waitress calls after her saying she forgot her coffee. Robin leaves the stroller in the doorway and gets her coffee. While her back is turned, someone dressed as a witch pushes Emma's stroller around the corner. Robin blames Lisa. Michael's friend Abby asks her if she just forgot where she left Emma. Robin swears that it was Lisa. Lisa rushes into the hospital later that night and soon after, Robin comes looking for Patrick. She tells him that Lisa took Emma. Patrick asks Robin if she is sure it was Lisa, and Robin wonders why he doesn't believe her, reminding him that Lisa is the crazy one. In the locker room, Patrick confronts Lisa but she denies doing it. Once she leaves, he notices a witch's hat and calls after her. He accuses her again and she swears the hat isn't even hers. A nurse comes in and tells Patrick the hat is hers. Patrick apologizes to Lisa, but after he leaves, she opens her locker and hides a witch's costume.
Emma's birthday party comes around, but Patrick doesn't go. Elizabeth tells Lisa that even though Patrick didn't go to the party, he still loves Patrick and Emma. This infuriates Lisa and she heads to Mac's house. She sees the house is on fire and breaks in. She hears Emma's cries from upstairs and rushes her out. A neighbor asks if anyone else is inside and Lisa tells her that Robin is, but they can't wait for the fire department. She runs in to save her. Robin refuses help, but Lisa manages to get her out. Robin accuses Lisa of starting the fire, when it was actually started by a knocked-over candle and some wrapping paper. She is brought to the PCPD and runs into Nikolas. She asks him, as one of the hospital's trustees, to intervene with Robin.
Lisa files a petition to have Robin fired from the hospital. However, while attempting to inject sodium pentathol into Robin's IV bag, Maxie enters and catches her in the act. She runs out of the room and gives Johnny Zacchara the syringe. Dr. Steve Webber and Nikolas Cassadine give chase but she gives them the slip. When the cops arrive, they find no proof that Lisa did anything to Robin. Nonetheless, as Lisa had no reason to be in Robin's room either way, Steve puts her on probation; her O.R. privileges are revoked, she is transferred to the E.R. so Steve can keep an eye on her, and she will be fired without mercy if she does provokes Robin in any way or even goes near her again. To make matters even worse (for her), the hearing to discuss Lisa's petition against Robin has been canceled, thus ensuring that Robin will remain at the hospital. Later, she meets up with Johnny, who tells her he intends to keep the syringe in case he needs a favor from her.
Ethan Lovett comes to General Hospital and tells Lisa that Johnny needs private medical attention. She goes to his apartment where Johnny demands she patch him up, or else he will tell Steve about the syringe. After she stitches him up, Johnny's girlfriend Olivia shows up and Lisa leaves. Eventually, fed up with Lisa's vendetta against Patrick and Robin, and the trouble that the syringe has caused him, Johnny decides to end it one way or another. To this end, he sets up a treasure hunt, leaving several clues for Lisa and Robin to find and see who gets the syringe first. When the clues lead Lisa to rummage through Steve's office, she is caught in the act by Steve himself. Steve easily sees through Lisa's lies and, declaring that he is fed up with all the drama, informs Lisa that she will definitely be fired if the syringe does surface. Lisa turns to Johnny for help, but Johnny refuses and reveals that the treasure hunt was in fact meant for her to finally learn to live for herself and get over her obsession with Patrick.
Robin finds the syringe first and confronts Lisa. Lisa attempts to take the syringe by force, and Robin responds by assaulting her and knocking her down before fleeing to the hospital with Lisa in hot pursuit. However, Robin is delayed from proving Lisa's guilt when Jake Spencer, the son of Elizabeth Webber, is hit by a car and dies on the operating table; in the process, Patrick and Robin finally reconcile completely. When Carly's daughter, Josslyn Jacks, is diagnosed with advanced kidney cancer, Elizabeth is persuaded to let them have one of Jake's kidneys, and Lisa helps with the transplant.
Lisa takes advantage of Robin's distraction to steal the syringe and dispose of it. It is later discovered that Lisa is one of the suspects in Jake's hit-and-run. However, forensics find no evidence that Lisa was responsible, but Mac nonetheless cites her for reckless driving, a charge that he intends to make stick. Patrick confronts Lisa and tells her that he is convinced that she did it and covered her tracks, as she is "the only one of [them] soulless enough to kill a little boy and duck responsibility." Lisa insists that all she ever did was love him, but Patrick makes it clear that nothing will ever change his opinion of her. After he leaves with Robin, Lisa, in a childish rage, shreds a photo of Robin in an HIV handout with a scalpel.
On March 31, Lisa begins another revenge plot against Robin and Patrick, this time planning to kill Robin and frame Patrick for the murder. To this end, Lisa pretends to befriend Kristina Davis, who has recently been hired as a replacement babysitter for Emmy and is stressed out over having been wait-listed at Yale, and begins giving her hydrocodone pills, which she passes off as non-addictive herbal supplements that will calm her nerves, and visiting the Drake home while Kristina is babysitting. On one particular visit, she drugs Kristina and bugs the house. Subsequently, she steals Patrick's credit card and makes elaborate and romantic purchases with it while creating screen names for herself and Patrick on a lovers hideaway website to make it appear as though the two are having an affair, and also visits the home while Patrick and Robin are out and takes pictures of their basement while researching home gas leaks.
However, Ethan discovers Lisa's actions when he recognizes Kristina's pills as hydrocodone and informs Johnny, who, realizing Lisa is still obsessed with Patrick, warns the latter as such. Nevertheless, Lisa seemingly causes a gas leak at the Drakes' while they are out, and locks Robin in the basement as soon as she gets home, telling Robin that Patrick will pay for what he did to her when he is arrested for Robin's murder. After covering her tracks upstairs, Lisa goes down into the basement and checks Robin's seemingly lifeless body, only for Robin, alive and well, to revive.
At that moment, Mac and Patrick come into the basement, and Mac promptly arrests Lisa for attempted murder; the entire thing was all a set-up to catch Lisa. As it turns out, Robin and Patrick had earlier figured out that Lisa had stolen Patrick's credit cards, and Kristina had informed them of Lisa's visits to the house. Having discovered Lisa's research into home gas leaks, Robin and Patrick waited for her to arrive, and Patrick turned off the gas from outside when Robin entered the house. Finally, Robin has recorded all of Lisa's threats on her cell phone. Lisa swears revenge on Patrick and Robin as Mac drags her away. At the police station, Lisa calls Johnny and begs him to help her, but he refuses. When she attempts to play on his feelings for Claudia, Johnny merely regards her with disgust and leaves.
Lisa, influenced by Anthony Zacchara, sneaks into General Hospital dressed as a security guard.Lisa loads her gun in the closet of General Hospital. She also prepares a syringe with a toxic substance. She returns to the hospital lobby and hovers, surprisingly unnoticed, while waiting to make her move. Patrick and Robin chat at the nurses station about Sam's possible pregnancy. Patrick smiles that Emma is the best thing that ever happened to him. As Steve talks with Lucky about Liz nearby and Maxie and Spinelli return with smoothies, Lisa approaches the center of the lobby, raises her gun and fires it. She asks the scared crowd for their attention. She notices Lucky reach for his gun and orders him to kick it her way and tells the crowd she needs closure. Steve puts the hospital under lockdown, angering Lisa. She orders Steve, Patrick, Robin and Maxie into the conference room, while forcing Lucky and Spinelli on the elevator.In the conference room, a crazy Lisa smiles that they are going to have a ton of fun. She tells them they are on trial and they will have to stand up and tell her why they were each so terrible to her.
Lisa charges Steve with raging hypocrisy and stupidity. She tells an incredulous Maxie she is an airhead, liar, and badmouthed her. Lisa then charges Robin with being boring, self-righteous and delusional. Lisa purrs that the sex with Patrick was completely mutual and he seduced her. She turns to Patrick that he is the biggest offender of all for making her think he loved her. Maxie yells at Lisa to get therapy because she is not the first woman to get dumped. Maxie refuses to apologize. Lisa aims her gun at Maxie, but Spinelli falls from the ceiling to save her. He calmly tries to get Lisa to stop, while Maxie gets in Lisa's face and tells her she is pathetic. Lisa raises her gun and fires, but Spinelli jumps in front of Maxie to take the bullet and falls to the floor.Outside the hospital, Mac and Ronnie argue about Jason helping the with the rescue. Mac says if Jason takes Lisa out for good, he will pin a medal on him. Lucky walks out, but Mac wonders why he's leaving. Lucky says he's no good to anyone right now. Ronnie implores Mac to act on the situation and stop thinking like a parent because Robin and Maxie are up there. He says they need to get the S.W.A.T team involved. Elizabeth walks out and asks about Lucky. Mac says they need him there or else they might have to take his badge.
After Lisa orders the doctors away from Spinelli, who she just shot, she continues her torment of Robin and Patrick in the conference room. She needles them by asking Patrick questions offensive to Robin. Patrick won't answer, so Lisa turns her attention on Steve to ask about her medical abilities. She also brings up their one night stand and accuses him of keeping her on staff so she wouldn't slap a sexual harassment suit against him. Steve take responsibility for what happened between them. She just wants someone to admit Robin and Patrick were at fault in their situation. Steve tells her she is a gifted doctor, but now her career is over. And for what?
Maxie is next on Lisa's list for interrogation. She wonders when she first wanted to destroy her life. Maxie always knew Lisa had an agenda, but she admits she used to be a lot like her by going after a married man. However, Maxie never became a stalker. When Lisa focuses on Robin, Spinelli starts to have trouble breathing and Steve notes his lungs are filling with blood. Dante calls the conference room and instructs Maxie to find out what Lisa's demands are. Lisa makes threats so Maxie tells Dante not to call again. Patrick implores Lisa to put down the gun. He will walk out with her, but he needs to trust her first.
Tears roll down her face as he asks her to put down the gun. She snaps out of it and accuses him of sweet talking her like he used to in college. As Lisa continues to rail at everyone in the room for taking everything away from her, Dante and Jason burst in. Lisa shoots Patrick in the arm and grabs Robin in the confusion. Lisa then tries to run, but Dante tackles her. Lisa lies unconscious, as Steve, Jason and Maxie tend to Spinelli, who is now in shock. Spinelli is wheeled to surgery, as Robin calls for a doctor to stitch Patrick up. Lisa wakes up, grabs Robin and holds a syringe to her neck.
Patrick tries to talk Lisa down from sticking Robin with the syringe in the hospital conference room. As he does, he grabs Lisa. They struggle and she is stuck with the syringe containing drain cleaner. She collapses in Patrick's arms. Robin and Patrick meet with Mac in the hallway. Patrick says he doesn't know if Lisa made it, but it doesn’t look good because drain cleaner is so toxic. Patrick can't believe how everything spiraled out of control. Mac expresses some disdain towards him, but Robin assures her uncle they have worked everything out. Patrick leaves to get checked out, as Robin fiercely defends her husband to Mac. He smiles and hugs her. He loves when she scolds him, but more importantly, he loves that she's alive. A hospital employee hands Robin some test results. Robin says she has to leave, but tells her uncle they are not done talking about Patrick.Robin returns to Mac at the hub. As they discuss Patrick and Lisa, Steve comes out to tell them Lisa is in a coma and there's no telling if she will come out of it. Mac is happy to hear it because she got what she deserved.
In August 2011, Jax arrives back in Port Charles after having left with Brenda after her breakup with Sonny. Jax and Carly had been in a custody battle over their daughter Josslyn before Jax left, and Carly had won. Desperate, Jax kidnaps Josslyn and shows up at Robin's house on his way out of town. Carly's friend, Shawn Butler, comes there and convinces Jax, with Robin's help, to give Josslyn back. After Shawn leaves, Sonny shows up in a rage, blaming Jax for Brenda leaving him. Robin begs him to leave, but Sonny instead fires his gun. Robin is injured in the chaos, and tells Jax to leave so he won't get caught. Patrick comes back, and throws Sonny out when he finds out Emma was in the room when Sonny fired his gun. Robin was furious with Sonny afterwards, and said she was done being his friend because he put her daughter in danger. Sonny later apologized, but Robin felt like it was too little, too late.
In October of 2011, Patrick and Robin decide to throw a congratulatory party for Patrick's brother Matt for getting his research published. Robin, Patrick, Matt, Elizabeth, Steven, and Olivia all gather on a boat to celebrate. Unbeknownst to them, Lisa Niles has awoken from her coma, thanks to a drug Anthony Zacchara had her "shot up with". Lisa, too, boards the boat.Lisa ends up chloroforming Patrick and Robin, and tying them both up, Patrick to a bed, and Robin to a chair. When Robin wakes up, Lisa takes out a syringe and Robin thinks she's going to inject her with something. Instead, Lisa tells her that she wants to inject Patrick with Robin's HIV-infected blood, so that they can truly share everything. Robin, however, unties herself and fights off Lisa. Later, Robin meets Lisa on the deck and they struggle again. Robin is knocked out when she is thrown against a ladder, and then Lisa turns up missing, and eventually found dead in the water. A murder investigation then ensues.In December of 2011, Robin still has the wound from when Sonny shot his gun in her house months before. She receives lab test results that she had done on herself in secret. She keeps the results to herself. On December 13 and 14, Robin asks Jason to help her disappear. She tells him that her HIV medication hasn't worked in months. She also says that she is pretty sure Lisa had replaced her meds with placebos, and even though she had gone back on her meds, it was too late, and she has become resistant to them. She wants to spend one last Christmas with Patrick and Emma, and then leave so that they don't watch her slowly die like she did Stone. Jason refuses to help her in this way, instead advising her to tell Patrick what's going on.
On New Years Eve, Robin gets a call from a specialist in Seattle that is going to look at her case and give her a second opinion, so she begins preparing to leave town. She tells everyone that she is going to Africa, to meet with a doctor and consult on a protocol for one of her patients whose viral load is unsteady. Before she leaves, she confides the truth to Elizabeth and asks her to take her place as the woman in Patrick and Emma's lives in case anything happens to her. While Robin is out of town, Elizabeth tells Patrick the truth about Robin's condition.
Robin returns from Seattle and comes clean with Patrick. She tells him the truth about her illness. She told him that she was put on a new protocol and now all they had to do, is wait to see if it takes. Robin's test results returned and they learned that her new HIV protocol was working. In celebration of the good news, Patrick, Robin and Emma took a trip out to see the plot of land where they would build their dream home in the future. On Valentine's Day, Patrick surprised Robin with a visit from her mother, Anna. Anna, Robin, Patrick, and Emma all had a joyous reunion.
Robin begins working on a drug protocol to save Jason, who is suffering from an inoperable cerebral edema. On February 20, 2012 there is a gas leak in Robin's lab, and Patrick gets trapped inside. Robin returns to the lab to find Patrick passed out on the floor. She gets him out of the lab in time before he dies, but Robin remembers that she forgot Jason's medicine and goes back in to get it. The doors lock and Robin is locked inside. Patrick tries everything he can to save her, but it is too late. Her last words before she dies are, "You and Emma are my whole life; you're in my heart, always." He leaves, and she falls and dies.
On March 26, 2012 it is shown that Robin alive, and being held in an initially undisclosed location. The end of the episode reveals that Dr. Keenan is holding Robin hostage and forcing her to undergo therapy at Ferncliff where Heather Webber was. Later, it is revealed that Dr. Keenan is working for Jerry Jacks. Jerry, in turn, is working for Cesar Faison. In July 2012, Heather tells Anna that Robin is still alive and being held at Ferncliff. She goes looking for Robin but before she could find her Dr. Keenan secretly moves Robin and gives her to Liesl Obrecht to be transferred to a mental institution in Switzerland.
In September, Robin is seen at mental institution in Switzerland. On November 6, 2012, Robin is seen talking to Dr. Liesl Obrecht, Duke Lavery's associate and knocking her out. She finds a phone and calls Patrick's home phone and her daughter, Emma, picks up. She tells her to put her daddy on the phone but before she can the doctor takes the phone away from Robin. Later, "Duke" arrives in Robin's room. Robin reminisces with him, but when he is hazy on the details of memories Duke should know, Robin is suspicious. The man then pulls of a mask, and reveals that he is actually Cesar Faison. Faison is actually the one behind her fake death and kidnapping of Robin.
In December, Anna learns that Faison was masquerading as Duke and she goes to the mental facility to look for Duke. She starts checking the rooms and finds Duke. Duke and Anna talk, while Robert decides to leave the room. Robert hears screams and tries to find where the screams are coming from. Robert finds the room where Dr. Obrecht is trying to inject Robin, but instead injects Robert. Duke and Anna find Robert where he tries to tell them about Robin but fails after Faison is arrested by Interpol. Dr. Obrecht transports Robin to another location where Jerry Jacks is there.
In Port Charles, Patrick finds a DVD that Robin made which Robin tells Patrick to move on. Luke shows up at the Cassadine Island laboratory, when Jerry arrives and states that Dr. Obrecht couldn't come up with a cure to the Polonium poisoning that's affecting Jerry, Luke, and Sean Donely. Dr. Obrecht found a better doctor to make a cure. Jerry leaves Luke in the main lab room, while Jerry goes further into the laboratory where we see Robin working on a cure.
Robin is bitter about working on a cure, but Jerry tries to convince her to by giving her a video of the 2013 Nurses' Ball, re-created in her honor. She sees Dr. Britt Westbourne come onstage while Patrick is paying tribute to Robin, and announcing she's pregnant with Patrick's baby. Soon after, Obrecht comes and reveals that Britt is her daughter, and claims Patrick & Britt had a son named Ben whom she has brought for Robin to take care of. Robin takes care of Ben, until Obrecht comes with Faison, and reveals that they are Britt's parents, claiming their grandson.
Robin finds a cure for Jerry but Tracy Quartermaine forces him to give it to Luke. Jerry then tells Robin to make another cure or he will die and so will she. After he leaves, Robin uses Jerry's phone to call Patrick but the connection is really bad, and she can't get through. Jerry threatens to kill Robin because she didn't save him but she says that she can if she can get the blood of the person who stole the cure. Jerry doesn't kill Robin but decides to take Robin back to Port Charles to get Luke's blood.
Meanwhile, Nikolas comes to Cassadine Island with Britt, trying to help her get Ben back from Obrecht. He ends up finding Robin in the lab, and the two of them escape. Nikolas reveals that Ben isn't Patrick's son. Robin keeps a watch on a subdued Obrecht while Nikolas tries to find Britt & Ben. However, Jerry shows up and reveals he trapped Robin's parents in the lab. Unless Robin concocts a cure, Jerry promises to kill Anna & Robert if she tries to go back to her family. Jerry has Faison & Obrecht go back to Port Charles with Nikolas, Robin, Britt, & Ben all held hostage.
The group returns to Port Charles to attempt to make a cure from Luke Spencer's blood. Britt takes Ben to get checked out at General Hospital, and finds out Patrick is engaged to his girlfriend Sabrina Santiago. Robin sneaks out on Halloween in disguise, and sees Patrick, Emma and Sabrina. She returns home, sad to see that her place has been filled by someone else. Robin then tells Faison she thinks Jason would be able to save her, but Faison tells her that he killed Jason the year before, and Robin is heartbroken when she finds a newspaper article that confirms it.
Luke comes to town, and goes to GH to get his blood tested. Robin is able to sneak in and get a sample for testing. While she's there, though, Patrick and Sabrina stop by, and she has to hide. Afterwards, Carlos Rivera, Sabrina's ex-boyfriend, shows up, and Robin tries to cover when he says he recognizes her. Robin tries to create the antidote using Luke's blood, with Britt's help. However, Robert & Anna show up, having overpowered Jerry and rescue Britt, Nikolas, & Robin. Robin is also reunited with the real Duke, having come back to Port Charles, as well. Robin rushes off to stop Patrick's wedding, while Anna and Robert deal with Obrecht & Faison.
Robin goes to the church where Patrick & Sabrina are taking their vows, and is hesitant to step in. Just as they're about to be declared "man and wife," Emma spots her and runs to her. The entire congregation sees her as well including a very stunned Patrick. Patrick goes to her and she explains what happened. Robin tells him that he needs to go sort things out with Sabrina. Robin is upset when Patrick says he didn't break up with Sabrina, and when he asks her to come home, she refuses and goes to stay with Anna instead.
Robin visits her memorial site at the cemetery, and ends up finding Maxie visiting Georgie's grave. She sees that Maxie is about to swallow pills to kill herself, and tries to talk her down. Maxie doesn't believe Robin is real, and is a ghostly presence. Robin slaps her to get her to listen, and Maxie realizes Robin is alive, and they reunite. Robin listens as Maxie tells her about how she lost custody of her daughter, Georgie, because she was deemed an unfit mother, which led to her becoming depressed and suicidal. Robin is able to convince Maxie to stay alive.
Robin goes to meet Sabrina, and tells her to break up with Patrick to make his decision easier, but Sabrina tells Robin that she thinks Patrick should be the one who makes the decision. Patrick lets Robin move back in to the house with Emma while he moves out to sort his life out. Eventually, he comes back to Robin on Christmas Eve, saying he wants to stay with her. Robin is overjoyed, and the two of them reunite in time to celebrate Christmas with Emma. On New Year's Eve, Patrick asks Robin about having another baby. Robin declines, saying she wants to get back to her life the way it was before she thinks about something new. Patrick relents, but Robin wants them to reaffirm their love in some way. They renew their vows with Emma "officiating" when the clock strikes midnight, ringing in the new year.
When Robin returns to GH, she overhears Sabrina's friend, Felix DuBois, tell Patrick that Sabrina is pregnant. Felix, though, tells Patrick that Sabrina didn't want to tell him because he's back with Robin. Patrick leaves to talk to Sabrina, and Robin worries she might lose Patrick because of the baby. However, Patrick comes back and tells Robin the baby is Carlos', not his. Robin's relief is short-lived when she finds out Obrecht is the new chief of staff at GH after making a deal with the WSB. Robin asks Anna, who says she has no idea what information Obrecht traded for her release.
Patrick & Emma go to the hospital together, and Robin is ambushed by men in her home. They are revealed to be working for Victor Cassadine, Nikolas' great uncle. Victor reveals that he requires Robin's services to help revive Helena & Stavros Cassadine, Nikolas' grandmother & father. Robin asks Victor why she would help a Cassadine, and Victor reveals that in addition to Helena & Stavros, he also has Jason, barely alive. Victor tells Robin that not only would she revive Helena & Stavros, but bring back Jason, as well.
After Victor leaves, Patrick comes home and tells Robin that Sabrina's baby is actually his because she lied about Carlos being the father. Though Robin is shocked, she tells Patrick she doesn't blame Sabrina and that he wanted another child, and he's getting one now. Patrick knocks over a table in frustration, and later finds a picture of Jason when he's cleaning up. He asks Robin about it, who says she just wishes she could have said goodbye. Patrick goes to work the next day, and Victor comes back, showing Robin proof Jason is alive. Robin says she needs time before she makes a decision.
Robin takes Emma out to the park, and meets Danny Morgan, Jason's son. After this meeting, Robin tells Victor she'll take the offer to help him out. When Patrick comes home, she says she's leaving Port Charles to go to Africa for volunteer work. Patrick is shocked she'd leave so soon, and she later claims she's trying to avoid Obrecht. When Patrick says he and Emma will come with her, and Robin refuses, Patrick keeps pressing about the real reason she's going. She finally tells him about Victor and Jason. Patrick is angry she'd leave her family. Robin says she wants to bring back Jason to his family because he would do the same for her, but Patrick is still upset about her leaving.
The next day, Patrick tells Robin they should tell her mother about this, but Victor later comes by and reveals he knows about Robin telling Patrick, and their plan to tell Anna. He tells Robin that if Anna finds out, she'll lose Jason. He leaves, and Robin tells Patrick that even though she loves him & Emma, she has to make this trip and is leaving with Victor. When Emma comes home with Mac, Robin tells both of them she's leaving town to go to Africa on volunteer work. Emma is hurt by this, and runs to her room, angry. Mac says he's shocked, but will support Robin's decision. On March 4, Robin leaves Port Charles for the Crichton-Clark Clinic in Scarsdale, New York. She also confirms that Jason is alive.
