"It's the genius of the story. I knew that they were going to take Summer away from Nick. I didn't know that they were going to take her away and then eventually give her back to him. It is going to be a lot of fallout for all the characters involved. It's going to be tough. You put this little girl through the ringer emotionally and Jack and Sharon -- everyone's going to be jacked up from this. I'm looking forward to playing it."
Jason Thompson and Kirsten Storms preview GENERAL HOSPITAL baby drama
“Lots of baby drama going on right now,” laughs Storms. “And the next few months are going to be pretty crazy for me. Maxie gives birth, which is going to be huge. There’s drama as soon as her water breaks, [when] things go awry in the midst of labor.”
Thompson’s leading man Patrick, meanwhile, has some bundle-of-joy woes of his own — he just doesn’t know their extent yet.
“Sabrina still doesn't believe the baby is Patrick’s, but he’s just trying to get her to back off a little bit,” the actor says. That said, “I’m just as interested as everybody else to find out how this is all going to be happen, because I honestly don’t know,” he jokes.
One thing about which Thompson is sure: His desire to see Kimberly McCullough return to GH as his “late” love Robin.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES writer Jeanne Marie Ford: Soap Opera Diva
Having spent 21 years with the show in several positions, including script editor, assistant head writer and continuity coordinator, Ford recollects a day in the office when she became somewhat alarmed that she could remember more about the fictional story lines than factual lessons. “Things I’d learned in college I could no longer remember but I could recount what episode number Bo and Hope’s wedding was because I had to insert it into so many flashback shows,” she says with a laugh.
In a world where Stefano DiMera has more lives than a cat and a demonic possession turned Dr. Marlena Evans into a yellow-eyed villain, Ford says the oddest storyline she has ever worked on involved the character Sami Brady. Actress Alison Sweeney was going on real life maternity leave, so it was decided her character would go undercover as a man, and a male actor was hired to take over the Sami role during her time off. Ironically, Ford was pregnant at the same time, too. Her children are now 8 and 6.
