"Daytime Confidential: It’s no longer a secret. You are going to be departing General Hospital at least temporarily sometime soon. Was your return always scheduled to be short term?
Kimberly McCullough: Yeah. It was always supposed to be this amount of time.
DC: Should fans be concerned that they’ll never see Robin again, or will she always be a part of the show?
KM: I certainly hope so! I guess it just depends on how much[executive producer] Frank [Valentini] liked working with me.
DC: GH’s ratings have risen since your return. How does it feel knowing that you have energized the fanbase?
KM: I don’t give myself that credit. The only thing I can say is I’m happy for the show and if I was a part of that at all, I’m so grateful.
DC: Have you filmed your final episode for this go around?
KM: No. I’ve got a couple weeks left.
DC: Is it going to be tough saying goodbye again?
KM: Of course! It always is. But it’s not goodbye. It’s just see you later.
DC: Can you give us a hint about how Robin will be leaving?
KM: Robin’s leaving because of her love for another character that is not Patrick on the canvas.
DC: There were a lot of rumors that you were coming back to give Scrubs a happy ending, but you have just quashed them.
KM: They’re not ready to let Jason Thompson go. So the happy ending is that [fans] still get to see Jason Thompson.
DC: Will Scrubs fans feel a sense of closure when Robin leaves?
KM: I don’t even know if I can comment on that. They’re going to be pissed. Really. They’re going to be pissed. I’m sorry.
DC: No one’s going to be mad at you.
KM: Oh, yes they will."
Yes, they will and with good reason. The fans constantly support Robin because she is a beloved character, but is it fair to keep coming back and messing up lives and then leaving. Maybe Robin should be recast. What do you think?
