Sam and Patrick have been friends for a long time. They have been there for each other through the hard times. Patrick was the one who operated on Jason when his life was hanging in the balance. He saved Jason for Sam and only Sam. At that time, Patrick blamed Jason for the death of Robin, as she was trying to come up with a cure for Jason in the lab when it blew up. Dr. Drake was hesitant to perform surgery on Jason to due the nature of his career. He felt that Jason’s life wasn’t worth saving until Sam stepped in and pleaded with him to save Jason so she wouldn’t be left without a husband.
Sam was there for Patrick when he needed a shoulder to lean on when he was trying to let go of Robin in order to move on with Sabrina. Patrick gave Sam advice when she was unsure about her relationship with Silas. Sam also was in Patrick’s corner when Robin decided to leave him and Emma shortly after finally being reunited with her family. Unknowingly to Sam, Robin is away trying to save Jason’s life and Patrick is keeping the secret from Sam.
Patrick has recently suffered the tragedy of losing his son in a car accident. His good friend and P.I. Sam, has been helping him through it all emotional as well as aiding in the investigation to find out who caused their car to run off the road. Through this journey together, Patrick and Sam have grown much closer. They found out that the car that ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road belonged to Silas, and the one driving the night of the accident was Rafe. Rafe is Silas’ nephew and Sam’s foster son. Sam is even standing by Patrick after the operation on Rafe took a turn for the worse which left her foster son brain dead.
As Sam and Patrick grow closer, they may even fall in love. However, Patrick is keeping a very large secret from Sam. Will Patrick’s guilt keep him from taking a step towards a romantic relationship with Sam? Or will Patrick fall in love with her just as Jason is due to return to Port Charles?
If Sam and Patrick begin a romantic relationship, when it comes out that Patrick has known this whole time that Jason could possibly be brought back to her, it is hard to believe that Sam would ever forgive him. Perhaps Patrick should come clean before they get involved romantically.
